The truth will make you free Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. No More Victims.
Those three thoughts have been the emphasis of my life for about a year or so.
At some point, when the light was shed on the darkness of my own mind, I saw that where I thought I was free, I was a slave. Knowledge is light. Light is what makes manifest, Light is the acknowledgment of the truth. Light is knowledge and that which makes known. When the lights turned on, the darkness dissapeared and the chains fell off.
But a freed slave, just like Moses couldn't forget his fellow Israelites, will not forget all his family who are still living in slavery and mental/spiritual/physical prison. Being an abolitionist takes GUTS ;) You don't comdemn slavery in a spiritual economy based on slavery, unless you're brave.
Everybody today likes to give lip-service to civil rights, but that's b/c the hard battle is over. You can say I love black and white people without having to face fire-hoses and billy-clubs. A rabble-rousing moron like Jesse Jackson did not take a bullet for the movement, a gentleman by the name of MArtin Luther King did. And Johnny-Come-Lately Civil Rights leaders are not Civil Rights Leaders at all---and that is how most of us are. You say you're against abuse/peresecution/evil/terrorism---then why does the whole United States ignore the cries of our Christian brethren being threatened, imprisoned, tortured/murdered by extreme Muslims? We play nice and act 'tolerant' of the Islamist agenda in the USA while the same system slaughters innocent people overseas? You say you're against abuse, but you buy products from companies and sources that have slave labor, you think pornography is a matter of free speech when the system supports sex-slavery and human traficking?
SO many claim they want to help the homeless but are they going to take someone into their home?
You see, many of us are slaves to our own fear and lack of conviction.
And when someone is being mistreated-we find it more convenient to act like we don't understand what's going on.
The judgments of the Old Testament came on a nation that was not caring for the justice of the poor, the fatherless, the widow and the stranger.
As child abuse, neglect, abortion, prostitution and drug sales sky-rocket in America, you can be assured the judgments of God will not slumber forever.
Standing up for the under-dog. The little guy. The victim. Is not convenient, not popular, not profitable. But it is the right thing to do. We need to start looking out for one another again and having a sense of community instead of being selfish, darwinistic, opportunistic, calculating, self-promoting cowards.
