I n one of his debates with the Pharisees, Jesus
promises that those who abide in his word will
know the truth and the truth will set them
free. He then goes on to assert that “if the Son
sets you free, you will be free indeed.” The Apostle
Paul exhorts the Galatians to “Stand fast . . . in
the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and
do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”
F reedom? Liberty? From what has the Christian
been freed? How far does our freedom
in Christ extend? What of the law? Is liberty the
same as license? Does this liberty protect the
conscience of the Christian? Is civil disobedience
W e invite you to the 2015 Reformed Congregational
Fellowship Pastors’ Conference,
