There may be more forms of slavery than ignorance but, ignorance has to be one of the most severe and fundamental.

    To cling to a lie as if the truth, is to imprison oneself -- only truth can break the chains.

    Ingersoll, as usual, knew whereof he spoke.

    David, I understand that half the people in Hollywood are nuts, but what the heck do you mean by your comment, and are you related to Waffler and Reston ?

    PERHAPS HE SHOULD HAVE SAID IN PLACE OF 'INTELLIGENCE', 'KNOWLEDGE AND/OR TRUTH', BECAUSE I KNOW SOME PRETTY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE WITH WHOM YOUR LIBERTY IS THE FARTHEST THING FROM THEIR MIND.

    Patrick; those that you speak of have intellect, not intelligence. If they were truly intelligent they would know that the greatest profits are made in the freest societies. All are enriched body, mind and soul.

    To teach Sound Doctrines of Liberty and Freedom require knowledge (doctrine) calculated upon a scale (rule) of Understanding. This denied the current public educational system.
    Now with the removal of Fear from the Pulpit, freedom of speech ( homologoumenos ) can take a Proper stage, long suppressed by the state. Those who "know" will become emboldened Patriots truly. Of course certain teaching associations avoided the trap called a 501C3. For that would bridle the tongue through fear. Knowledge without understanding is useless, gendering strife and confusion, this has produced socialistic tendencies within the church at large, made evident through the polls. 66% remain socialist. That will soon change among the congregations as the wool is removed from their eyes concerning oppression and economic slavery.
    " Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them. God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth Mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work." Psalm 62:10,11,12. "Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts." Such is the call of all those who hear the Cry of Liberty. God Bless and Semper FI
