Freedom, Granted by God

I usually do not use political quotes, but here is a quote by David Horowitz that has a fundamental understanding of the Gospel. Only God provides redemption. Man cannot fix man and man cannot fix society.

“The first chapters of Genesis reflect a very profound understanding of who we are. When God expelled us from the Garden of Eden he put an angel with a flaming sword at the gate to prevent us from returning. We are the problem, not society. Society is just a reflection of who we are. We are the problem, and we can’t fix it. If you understand that, then you are a conservative. If you think that the human problem can be fixed by other human beings then you’re a leftist and dangerous.”

What we are actually seeing is Satan convincing man that he can fix himself and God is not needed. After the flood, God ordained government to restrain man and sin; not fix man. Government now tries to fix man and therefore society.This is why nearly all of government is godless.

Government regardless of political party takes away freedoms of choice; God never violates our freedom of choice. Our rights are inalienable; granted by God and never violated. We have the freedom to choose Him or reject Him.
