“where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
POLICE STATE: LIBERTY FOR LICENSE
One sure sign of the end times has been the steady erosion of true liberty and freedoms for the common man.
In their place, the all-powerful state has given man license (to sin).
License is a counterfeit of liberty.
Liberty and license are a zero sum game: the more of one, the less there is of the other.
The more freedom is taken away, the more sin (license) is allowed to take its place.
This is in order to distract and enslave the masses.
The state reduces freedom of movement, but man is allowed to gamble.
Instead of freedom of choices, man is given “sexual freedom” (which is really slavery by another name).
As more and more freedoms are restricted, sin is substituted in their place. When readers notice more public sin, they can be assured real liberty is being restricted.
Instead of freedom of speech, man is given pornography.
“Choice” becomes the right to murder the inconvenient. It begins with the unborn, comes next for the sickly, then the elderly and feeble-minded. Finally, it comes for ANY who inconvenience the living.

Deviant sex, drugs and alcohol are substituted for freedoms to assemble and worship. So, as the courts draw tighter the noose around the necks of the enslaved, they toss them trinkets of sin.
ALL Christians should be praying for the judges. Indeed, Christians are to pray for ALL in authority.
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”
The courts are FULL of victories for license, defeats for liberty.
Finally, the “right” to demonic power in all of its many forms becomes so commonplace, the masses are completely unaware of it.

And so the government busies itself, taking away liberty while granting license.
Meanwhile, its partner-in-crime, Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media), spews out a never-ending flow of propaganda WHY this is a great deal for the increasingly-enslaved masses.
It’s not that important you have a job or freedom to control your life. Hey, look! You have pornography, drugs and rock and roll! You’re more free than any other generation!
That vices are not crimes is true enough, particularly in the land and times in which we live. But vices are not crimes only because modern man has been indoctrinated that “You cannot legislate morality.”
A quick check of human history puts the lie to that contention: legislating morals has always been an integral part of the law for EVERY civilization and society in history.
Vices were once crimes–even in the land born of rebellion and lawlessness: the United States of America.

Once more, in the times and place in which we live, vices are no longer crimes.
BUT, vices ARE sins.
When vice and sin become synonymous with freedom, liberty becomes license
“When liberty becomes license, dictatorship is near”

As true liberty and freedom vanish, they are always replaced by the license to sin. True liberty is to be found in Jesus Christ.
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
Does the reader desire liberty?
Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
