"The choice to try to live in the Garden without any boundaries has reshaped every hunger within the human heart." -- Ravi Zacharias
"A church in which scriptural teaching is no longer authoritative is already going with the world and has no ground on which to stand against it....The idea that freedom is what you have when you have thrown off all that represses or constrains you is a false trail which leads nowhere save to puzzlement and disillusioned bitterness." -- J.I. Packer
"Real freedom is freedom from sin." -- J.I. Packer
The Church of Dreamy Dreamers
The liberal Church of Dreamy Dreamers,
Has dismissed God's holy Word.
The reverie that they believe in,
Is indistinct and clearly blurred.
The Feel-Good News the dreamy preach there,
Won't allow true Truth or Rule.
'Cause Rule suggests true Boundary,
And today that's just not cool.
What the liberal prophets teach us,
Is that "Freedom is your Bliss".
They say that freedom is the bullseye,
That we surely shouldn't miss.
What they tell us "freedom" is, though,
Is really anybody's guess.
They say the target we should shoot for...
Well...it's unclear and vague, at best.
It seems the bullseye's quite subjective...
You can dream your freedom up!
It's whatever makes you happy, man.....
Whatever fills your cup.
It can be a groovy feeling.
A satisfaction of desire....
It can be a state of consciousness,
Like a drug to get you higher.
It can be some secret knowledge,
Like a Gnostic ego-trip.
Or attaining lofty status,
Where nobody gives you "lip".
It can be something erotic....
A "Trophy Bride" who's fit to kill.
Or max exhilaration...
Like skydiving for a thrill.
It's found in a new "right" you have,
To kill your tiny 8-month old;
And it's found in teaching children,
That they evolved from ancient mold.
It's somehow buried in the notion,
That man can make up Moral Law,
Or re-imagine what a marriage is,
Since God's way is clearly flawed.
In the Church of Dreamy Dreamers,
The Fog of Freedom frees at last!
And though we can't see where we're going,
We know we're moving downhill fast!
You see, this "freedom" 's like a phantom
Moving through a hazy maze.
It's not easy to define it....
But to preach it really pays!
But this dreamy freedom's Evil,
From Satan's Realm of Touchy-Feel.
But then dreamers never really dream,
That Evil's really real.

Dear Lord, impress upon us,
That true freedom's in the Son.
That freedom from our bondage,
Is through God's Anointed One.
Christ redeemed those locked in bondage,
By His blood we have been bought.
True freedom's in obedience,
And in doing what we ought.
Truth is, we're locked in darkness...
Truth is, Faith is the key.
Faith unlocks the door to freedom...
True Truth sets the prisoner free.

"Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them--- the LORD, who remains faithful forever. He upholds the cause of the oppressed, and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free...." (Psalm 146: 5-7)
"Simon Peter answered, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' Jesus replied, 'Blessed are you Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven....." (Matthew 16: 16-19a...)
"To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, 'If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8: 31,32)
