The Bible for Freedom

References: John 7:14-18

 

True freedom is found not in independence from the truth, but in submission to the truth.

When a person submits to the truth, he is set free from falsehood and from the deceits of men, and the lies of the devil.

Jesus clearly taught this when He said, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31-32.

The Bible consistently teaches that submission to truth is the only way to true freedom.
