“As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.” (1 Peter 2:16 KJV)
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
“But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.” Romans 6:22

This video caught my attention because I am focused on freedom and this man felt strongly against paying taxes to fund useless wars that kill innocent people around the world. He’s a Quaker and I admire how he took a stand against sending his money in taxes to build bombs that kill Yahweh’s children.
“It always seems impossible until it is done.”
— Nelson Mandela
“Only free men can negotiate. Prisoners cannot enter into contracts.”
