it would be really easy to take this out of context. Here’s the whole verse.
Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God.
Both a command and a warning. How interesting. This is how most heresies get started. People see a snippet of a verse like the picture above, and totally forget that the passage has a context, a particular meaning colored by the text it is found in. Peter is saying that because we are Christ’s we are not bound by this world, however, we are bound to Christ, and we are to live for Him, and not use our freedom as license to do whatever we want, which is the implication of the picture.
Never take one of these verse pics for granted. Please take the time to consider the verse in its context.
God bless you on this Wednesday.
