About UNFREEDOMS

What does it mean to live freely? The freedom that Christ offers, is it merely limited to the soul or does it include the entire human experience? Does spiritual transformation have any bearing on our lives here on earth? Must we be interested in the overall well-being of people?

The answer to those questions is a – yes! Christ comes to redeem humans from anything that prevents them from living freely. These unfreedoms include whatever limits people’s capabilities – anything and everything that stops us from achieving our full potential.

During Jesus’ time, for example, Unfreedoms were disability, premature mortality, over-active and repressive powers. Jesus addressed these issues – he healed the blind, brought people back to life, challenged repressive leaders and eventually through his death and resurrection pointed us to an existence marked by freedom. He then empowered us to go out and spread this freedom.
