This week’s radio commentary…
Liberty. It’s an incredibly inspiring and important concept. Men, women and children down through the centuries have given their all for the cause of liberty. As Americans, we pride ourselves on our liberty and the sacrifices we have made in pursuit of that great cause.
But where does the concept of liberty come from? It’s far too glorious to have sprung from the mind of mere mortals—a race much more inclined to enslave than to free when left to its own devices.
God is the Author of liberty, as one of our patriotic songs confirms. The God of the Universe is in the business of setting captives free. This week begins the Jewish Passover, the celebration of the Hebrews’ flight from Egypt, when God freed the nation of Israel from their Egyptian masters millennia ago.
