Part 4: Liberty Has Its Limits
Series: Six Things We Must Never Forget!
Stuart Briscoe
2 Peter 2:10-22

Human history is all about oppression and liberation, tyranny and emancipation. It is also about the abuse of freedom and confusion about liberty. Peter addressed the issue, talking about being "slaves of depravity" and "a man is a slave to what¬ever has mastered him."

I. The "Freedom" that in Reality Is Bondage.

A. The promise of freedom that is in error because it assumes:
1. There is no final judgment.

2. There is no ultimate authority.

3. There is no final accounting.

4. We're free to pursue our own desires.

B. The promise of freedom that is empty because:
1. It proffers a freedom that it cannot deliver.
a. "Springs without water." v. 17

b. "Mists driven by a storm."

2. It is presented by those who do not experience freedom. v. 19
a. They are bold and arrogant. v. 10

b. They blaspheme in matters they do not understand. v. 12
