The Sweetest Freedom in The World; Know God, Love God…
In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we’re pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker’s praise without anxiety. –A.W. Tozer
He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king. –Augustine.
It always seems inexplicable to me that those who claim free will so very boldly for man should not also allow some free will to God. Why should not Jesus Christ have the right to choose his own bride? –Charles Spurgeon
The lost enjoy forever the horrible freedom they have demanded. –C.S. Lewis
A man has free choice to the extent that he is rational. –Thomas Aquinas
The great comprehensive truths written in letters of living light on every page of our history are these: Human happiness has no perfect security but freedom; freedom none but virtue; virtue none but knowledge; and neither freedom nor virtue has any vigor of immortal hope, except in the principles of Christian faith, and in the sanctions of the Christian religion. –-James H. Aughey
Free will carried many a soul to hell, but never a soul to heaven. –Charles Spurgeon
There are two freedoms – the false, where a man is free to do what he likes; the true, where he is free to do what he ought. –Charles Kingsley
If a thing is free to be good it is also free to be bad. And free will is what has made evil possible. Why, then, did God give them free will? Because free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having. –C.S. Lewis
To serve God, to love God, to enjoy God, is the sweetest freedom in the world. —Thomas Watson
