“So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.” – Galatians 5:1
The statistics are devastating.
Over 121 million people currently suffer from depression. Suicide rates have risen 60% in the last 45 years, making it the third leading cause of death among young adults. Failed suicide attempts are now 20 times more frequent.
Substance abuse continues to rise. If current trends continue, around 10% of the world’s population will be addicted to drugs or alcohol within the next decade.
The global economy is shaking and almost all nations are running massive budget deficits. The gap between rich and poor is widening. While bankers and oligarchs thrive, millions of people who were previously comfortable are slipping into poverty under a wave of new socialist policies and austerity measures.
Daily news channels report on corporate greed, political corruption, tax rises, wars, injustice, immorality, terrorism, persecution, attacks on liberty and freedom of speech. World leaders come and go, each one claiming to have answers, and yet things continue to deteriorate.
Stay Free is an important 47-part series that examines the root causes of all these problems. More importantly it provides real solutions.
Using the lens of scripture, we examine where our sense of morality comes from and how it is impossible to understand good and evil apart from the reality of God. We’ll look at how the Gospel has been the primary civilizing force throughout history and explore Christianity’s incredible impact for good over the past 2000 years. We’ll see how and why societies decline as they have abandon their Creator and how humanistic and atheistic regimes have led to some of the worst atrocities in history. We’ll look at the need for the church to cast off the chains of fear, apathy and theological confusion and to stand tall in an increasingly atheistic and pagan culture. (And what to expect if we don’t.)
Finally, Stay Free proves that the true Gospel is the only thing capable of turning the tide in the battle for our personal and collective destinies. We’ll look at the problems of legalism and licentiousness and in the end we will learn that only Jesus Christ through the power of his Holy Spirit has the power to truly set us free — from our own internal bondage toward sin, and from those who would like to enslave from without.
