If The Son Sets You Free...
"If the Son has set you free, you are free indeed." This Scripture gives us hope and consolation. It tells us that no matter what things might seem to have us bound, when Jesus sets us free we are really, truly, and totally free.
Then why do so many of us feel bound by so many things? We are bound by fear, doubt, anger, addiction, and sin. Is there something we're missing? Can we really be free? Let's explore Scripture together to answer these questions, and find out what God says about our freedom.

What is Freedom?
Ask most people today what freedom is, and they will probably tell you that freedom is the ability to make your own choices and do as you please without anyone supressing that right. But while this definition of freedom is not new, it is only partial at best, and we must ask ourselves if ultimately it even agrees with God's definition of freedom.
We hold to this definition of freedom, but even the people who live such an ungoverned lifestyle find themselves bound by so many things. In fact, many of the things society considered freedom are, in and of themselves, bondage.
It's no wonder the flesh and the enemy have perpetrated such a misdefinition -- in seeking freedom, the masses embrace a false freedom which leads them into even darker captivity. And while proclaiming the message of true freedom from the physical pulpit and on the streets is something that is vitally important, it is not enough.
There are people who desperately need and are looking for freedom who will never enter a physical church and who you will never pass on the street. Many of these people look for freedom through what they consider "safe" interactions with others in a 3-D world on the Internet. This is why we go into that part of the world Jesus commanded us to reach, and share with them the message that there is only one place they can find the peace and freedom they are desperately seeking, and his name is Jesus.
Currently there are more than 8,076,411 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 100,000 to 250,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift and as a monthly partner.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.
Visit here to become a financial partner or give a one-time gift today. And remember, whatever you do to the least of these, you do unto Jesus.

Kidneys and Heart – MaggieJ writes, I need for God to step in for peace and opening doors so that they can find out what is wrong. If I get the surgery for the kidney, I could have a heart attack, if I get the problem fixed with my heart, my kidney could fail. But I know that God is able
Crisis of Faith – Landis writes, I have had a crisis of faith, and I'm ready to make a true commitment to Christ, but there is lingering doubt in my mind about it.
