“Consideration Of Our Newly Liberated Life In Christ”

Definitions / Study Helps
  • Liberty/Freedom – True liberty has as its source God, and is the opportunity and ability to
    live as we ought, not as we please. Types of freedom attributed to salvation in Christ & the indwelling of the Holy Spirit:
    1. Freedom from condemnation
    2. Guilt
    3. Sin
    4. Death
    5. The Old Covenant
    6. Blindness to the gospel truths of God
    – That there is freedom from and freedom unto shows the perfect extent and completion of the liberation offered to us by God.
    – And of the most essential points is that this freedom is of God.
  • Sexual Immorality – Operating in sexual orientation that is contrary to what God has established. This goes from the heart to the act. From being accepting of wrong acts to participating in them.
  • Impurity – Moral; suggestive of the fact that sensuality and evil doctrine are frequently associated.
