FREED INDEED (1 of 17)
Born AGAIN Free
Jerry Vines
Galatians 1:1-10

It is innate in the human heart to have a desire to be
free--to have liberty. In our Declaration of
Independence it says that we are entitled to life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We want to be

The matter of being born free is dependent upon where
you are born. When you think in terms of political
freedom or social freedom, if you are born in America,

theme of the book of Galatians. It is a book about
Christian liberty, Christian freedom. In fact, some
form of the word for liberty is used about ten times
in this letter.

It is a letter which we are told in verse 2 has been
addressed to the churches of Galatia. Probably this is
a reference to the southern province of Asia/Min ...
