Christ sets us free. You can be sure that those whispers of slavery (as CelebrateRecovery puts it, “our hurts, hang-up and bad habits”) come straight from the mouth of the enemy:
“They’re all out to get you.”
“Just one more won’t hurt you.”
“You’re too stupid.”
“Have it your way.”
John 8:44 (MSG)
When the Liar speaks, he makes it up out of his lying nature and fills the world with lies.
