Freedom Is Not Free
We contend that things do not happen
because God does not desire them;
but God is not willing to do everything,
and deny our initiative its fair share of glory.
Free will's greatest opposition is human vanity.
Freedom is not free.
If you didn't pay for it,
then you don't know how much it truly cost;
so, when something that valuable is given to you,
you can't understand what it's really worth!
If you can't appreciate it,
and don't even want it,
then don't discard what someone else
may never be able to afford!
Liberty shouldn't be wasted.
Freedom is not the absence of responsibility or obligation
... it's the liberty to choose one's preferred limitations and
Not choosing is just as confining as being subject to another's
Choosing badly is another way of eliminating options and
Freedom is too precious to be resigned.
Just as common sense is uncommon,
and rights may not be left unprotected,
so liberty is liberality,and
freedom is not free.
