Religious liberty from the commandments and traditions of men and political liberty from the arbitrary, lawless intrusions of men are blessed fruits of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sin-enslaved men will never be liberty-possessing men. The first liberty and the foundation of all other liberties is deliverance from slavery to sin and Satan (Rom. 8:21; 2 Tim. 2:26). True liberty exists when men walk in obedience to God’s commandments in holy Scripture (Ps. 119:65).
