How can you live out your freedom in Christ, and still please him with your sacrificial obedience? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1622).

It is true that a Christian has a wide spectrum of freedoms. It is also true that the perception of a Christian is filtered through the prism of the disciplines of God's love. That is, unlimited freedom is disciplined into channels of love as set forth by the ministry of Christ and by the leadings of the Holy Spirit. Therefore a Christian's actions are not spastically free, but perhaps in many ways more restricted and honed than the libertine excesses offered by other gods.  The paradox is that the disciplines of love yield greater power and freedom than the oversold addictions touted by other deities as surefire avenues of escape from mortal limitations.
