He goes on to talk about this. America is a melting pot of different cultures and religions and it is difficult to find anyone who does not come from immigrant bloodlines from Europe and Africa. Being an American is to help another, whether it be Polish or Chinese or Afghan or Muslim. It's not freedom from doing right, freedom from obeying God's moral commandment. I can write fun or serious stories however I want to.
After all, Hitler said he was bringing freedom too. For example, 11 million Americans will travel to other countries during this year, including 10,000 to the Soviet Union. The right of petition also helps government officials to know what Americans think and what actions they want the government to take. Freedom of speech does not give Americans the right to engage in hate speech. However, we do not use race or ancestry to determine what it means to be American. Freedom should not lead to corruption.
It's like the Christian soldier in 2 Timothy 2:4, it says he does what he does to please the one who called him to be a soldier. With freedom I can say what I want. The Soviet Exhibition in New York and the American Exhibition which we open tonight are dramatic examples of what a great future lies in store for all of us if we can devote the tremendous energies of our peoples and the resources of our countries to the ways of peace rather than the ways of war. Even if it offends another. Freedom of religion allows us to choose what we want to believe in. Among the questions which some might raise with regard to our Exhibition are these: To what extent does this Exhibition accurately present life in the United States as it really is? But even worse, I'm afraid the church to some extent may have fallen prey to the same mentality and we need to be reminded that we are free, but freedom is not the freedom to indulge the flesh and it is not freedom to injure other people and it is not freedom to disobey the law of God. My point of view- A being having real freedom actually must meet the standard of being always happy and making others happy.
The answer is that here we have a firsthand example of how a free economy works. Yet, we chose to sin and rebel against God by abandoning our created purpose of worshiping Him in order to do our own thing and pridefully make a name for ourselves. When the pilgrims came to America, they set up a system of government that was like a commune. So we buy it, and voila! But the stunning can be more than just a setting for Clinton. Freedom just sets the stage for the individual to have the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. A very unpopular notion of the time; as was his black wife Sally Hemmings that he traveled with, and had 6 children. There's still an obligation to hold the flesh in check, not to please the flesh but to please the Lord.
And Americans are happy to note that Mr. Well, I'm free from the law, it says in Romans 6, I'm not under the law anymore, I'm not under sin's dominion anymore and I'm free to do what I want to do. If they do, they may be imprisoned. Nixon I am honored on behalf of President Eisenhower to open this American Exhibition in Moscow. All of it is a choice.
It was a gospel of liberty, a gospel of liberation. It is the nature of freedom that it can be abused to the point where it is lost. My dad is veteran of the United States army. We are living in a time when Christian freedom is being abused. As historian , freedom has always been a contested concept in the United States. We have been called to liberty.
We're free from trying to keep the law unsuccessfully and therefore being killed by the law eternally. If we are to protect our freedoms, citizens must mobilize to take back government from the few, to clean out the corruption and to curb the oppressive power of the modern day economic royalists. The endless small restrictions are the biggest enemies of freedom. What about the strikes which take place in our economy the latest example of which is the steel strike which is going on? The genius of the men who produced the magnificent achievements represented by these two Exhibitions can be directed either to the destruction of civilization or to the creation of the best life that men have ever enjoyed on this earth. Governments serve many important purposes, but the most important one is that government makes it possible for people to live and work together.
Government is the threat; the best thing it can do is to get out of the way. I am so proud to be an American. The problem with you is that that new redeemed part of you, that transformed part of you which has been made like Christ, which is righteous, which loves the law of God and loves purity and loves holiness and seeks to do what is right is incarcerated in your flesh. The incentive to be more successful and create something that people want and need, will make you a success and create wealth, this is the real American dream. He introduces the concept in chapter 2 verse 4 and he says in the middle of verse 4 that we have liberty in Christ Jesus. And that means to be saturated with the Word of God so that the Word of Christ dwells in you richly and that then, that word then becomes the control factor used by the Spirit of God to lead you into obedience.
You're to serve each other. From 1776 to present, the American military has protected both the rights of individuals and the rights of the government. One Bible teacher saying, you know, your sinful flesh is going to do its thing, so let it go, you can't do a thing about it anyway, so don't worry about it, don't worry about confessing your sin; certainly we should never have church discipline because why would we discipline something that is sinful and can't control itself? What is more, the great majority of American wage earners have done exactly that. American citizens have the freedom to live the lives that they choose and are passionate about retaining that right which so many of their predecessors have fought and died for. I wish they knew that it wasn't a freedom that means that everybody can live and believe and do whatever they want to do and there are no rules. But when the Constitution was sent to the states in 1787 for ratification, a great roar of disapproval went up. My freedom is controlled by that.
Government provides us with rules of conduct we can follow. Independence implies not only lack of restrictions but also the ability to stand alone, unsustained by anything else: Independence of thought promotes invention and discovery. Walk is the idea of daily conduct, daily conduct, routine life pattern. So you can be Italian, Mexican, or Irish, and still be an American. In fact, if there's one ringing theme that I try to communicate to these men that I've been ministering to, and women, over the last three or four weeks, it is this ringing theme that the church is never going to be the church it's supposed to be until it becomes spiritually committed to obedience to the Word of God.
