In a recent letter to the editor, the writer claimed that Ronald Reagan was what was wrong with this country. I was stunned by that statement, but as I continued to read, I had an epiphany. I have always known that liberals hate freedom, but I could never understand it, but this letter filled in the blank that I had always missed.
Liberals hate freedom because they fear it. Freedom brings with it personal responsibility. Freedom gives us not only the opportunity for great success, but the possibility of failure. That possibility of failure scares liberals so much that they cannot tolerate freedom. They demand that government control everything and protect them from any consequences of their actions. They willingly surrender all freedom to any government which promises them protection from failure.
This becomes understandable when you realize that liberals are at war with God. While most of us rely on God's protection, liberals cannot. They have done everything they can to distance themselves from Him. That puts them in a very frightening position. The founders of this country knew that the kind of freedom they proposed could only be enjoyed by a moral and religious people.
Liberals reject any meaningful notion of God and therefore have placed their faith in government. While some liberals claim to believe in God, what they really believe in is a god of their own making. Such a god is of little help in time of trouble, so they need government to fall back on.
The bottom line when it comes to freedom is that those of us who are Christians will always have a freedom that others cannot understand, but those who are not will never be free no matter the system of government we have.
