Reader comments about this quote:
By way of example, when the spirit of liberty was still acceptable in parts of the body politic, commercial endeavors and financial realms there was progression at all measurable and lasting levels with a lot less permanent signs of degradation.

    The Spirit of Liberty is the essence of America, it is its very life.
     -- E Archer, NYC

    All that is produced and maintained among men by the operations of the Spirit of God is "spiritual". The blessings that accrue to regenerate men at this present time are called "spiritualities". Liberty and Freedom are of such spirituality. There is a contrast between this spiritual state and that of the babe, of the man who because of immaturity and inexperience has not yet reached spirituality, and that of the man who by permitting jealousy, and the strife to which jealousy always leads, has lost it. Such as are lead by the Spirit are spiritual, but, of course, spirituality is not a fixed or absolute condition, it admits of growth; indeed growth in "the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ". Gala 5:16,25
