Topic #177:

What does freedom mean? People talk about freedom all the time, but what does it mean in real life? Is a person who has a job truly free? What about the responsibilities of having a family or a friend? It’s one thing to be free to make a choice, but after a choice is made, are we truly free anymore?

  2. I couldn’t even begin to delve into the concept and different points of view when it comes to freedom. There are so many different meanings, situations, and roles freedom take.

  3. For me, freedom is something that should be given value of. Whatever it takes just do the best we could in every situation we are going to face. Making the most out of our time is having saying that “Fear of God is the beginning of true wisdom.”

  4. Freedom is having the opportunity to anything at anytime with out predifined constraints. It can as well be the inner feeling that lets u have piece in your mind about things going on in your life.

  5. Human desire is always connected with attempts to explain, obtain, and experience everything (some might want to add–eliminate all unnecessary suffering). I think, however, that “all this freedom” is a secondary motivation; the primary motivation being the human spirit’s pursuit of self-liberation. “Meaning (of Love) becomes the moving force of self-transcendence, which reaches beyond the limited horizon and longs for the whole.” (Erich Jantsch, The Self-Organizing Universe,–the “of Love” I added).

  6. The answer is inGenesis……..responsibility and man’s tough life was the result of Adam and Eve’s decisions to disobey.God. What happened is history, we work by the sweat of our brow and even the weeds and thistles are against us. My friend it is the nature of fallen man. If there is freedom to be had it is in Christ and his promises. He is, “the way the truth and the life.,” he is our only hope, yours and mine.

  7. Freedom to me means picking up my fishing rod and go fishing whenever I want, go anywhere without molestation or fear for my life, eat whatever I want when ever I want, spend as much or as little i want, give to whoever and or whatever cause without anyone questioning me, travel anywhere I want without fear and love whoever I want whenever I want. Amen!

  9. Boa pergunta, será que a liberdade existe? Até agora eu não sei o que é isso. Tantos problemas, compromissos que não tem fim, família para cuidar o tempo inteiro! Eu realmente desconheço a liberdade! Sorte de quem a possue.
    Abraços a todos!
    Mina!

  10. I would probably look at freedom as how well you can maintain a peaceful and relaxed state of mind in any types of environment or situation. The key is to minimize the duration and effect of being led around on the nose by emotional responses.
