Free at last!
Hollywood Jesus also was reminded of these thoughts:
“Creation, which seems like pure freedom, involves limitation. . . . Rebellion, which also seems like freedom, involves limitation as well.” --PHILIP YANCEY (1949– )
“Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, I’m free at last.” —Inscription on the gravestone of Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929–1968)
“Free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having. A world of automata—of creatures that worked like machines—would hardly be worth creating. The happiness which God designs for his higher creatures is the happiness of being freely, voluntarily united to him and to each other in an ecstasy of love and delight compared with which the most rapturous love between a man and a woman on this earth is mere milk and water. And for that they must be free.” --C. S. LEWIS (1898–1963)
