The Law of LibertyMankind has a tremendous capacity for organization. He builds structures, apparently with good intentions, to control and direct human activity; economic, political, religious, and cultural. Under demonic influence, they take on a life of their own. Thus, our defiant pursuit of self-determination enslaves us under the very systems we ourselves build to escape God. Yet God hates oppression. So He gave His people tools to achieve and maintain liberty. It is called the law of liberty. Liberty is a primary theme of the instructions in the Bible. This law includes safety outlets, like the year of release and the Jubilee, to prevent man from trapping himself. The Jubilee is the backbone of God’s economic plan and reveals God’s mind. We can live like that now. We can enjoy moral, emotional and economic liberty in God’s care. We may not get all the material trophies we want. But we can have more. We can have true liberty.
