  • I want to share with youfrom John chapter eight,
  • 00:00:51.690 --> 00:00:53.492
  • Jesus talked aboutfreedom, and he said,
  • 00:00:53.492 --> 00:00:56.095
  • if you continue in my word,you are truly my disciples.
  • 00:00:56.095 --> 00:01:00.933
  • You will know the truth andthe truth will set you free.
  • 00:01:00.933 --> 00:01:04.536
  • And they answered him, we'redescendants of Abraham.
  • 00:01:05.971 --> 00:01:08.474
  • We've never been inbondage to anyone.
  • 00:01:08.474 --> 00:01:10.008
  • How can you say to us thatyou will be made free?
  • 00:01:10.008 --> 00:01:12.211
  • And Jesus said to them,truly truly I say to you,
  • 00:01:12.211 --> 00:01:16.682
  • whoever commits sinis a slave to sin.
  • 00:01:16.682 --> 00:01:20.786
  • A slave doesn't continuein the house forever
  • 00:01:20.786 --> 00:01:22.588
  • but the son continues forever.
  • 00:01:22.588 --> 00:01:25.057
  • So if the Son makes you free,you will be free indeed.
  • 00:01:25.057 --> 00:01:30.062
  • I love that.
  • 00:01:30.662 --> 00:01:32.097
  • It was Patrick Henry,great patriot back in 1775.
  • 00:01:32.097 --> 00:01:36.001
  • He addressed theContinental Congress
  • 00:01:37.302 --> 00:01:39.238
  • of the United States and hehad this impassioned plea,
  • 00:01:39.238 --> 00:01:43.308
  • and Patrick Henry said,maybe you've heard this
  • 00:01:43.308 --> 00:01:45.310
  • from your historyclass before, he said,
  • 00:01:45.310 --> 00:01:47.479
  • give me libertyor give me death.
  • 00:01:47.479 --> 00:01:50.716
  • Wow.
  • 00:01:50.716 --> 00:01:52.217
  • I absolutely love thatand I'll tell you why.
  • 00:01:52.217 --> 00:01:54.386
  • Because he had this audacity.
  • 00:01:54.386 --> 00:01:57.990
  • He had this daring, thisboldness, this courage
  • 00:01:57.990 --> 00:02:01.860
  • about freedom, and inorder to walk in freedom,
  • 00:02:01.860 --> 00:02:06.832
  • Jesus has already setyou free at the cross.
  • 00:02:08.066 --> 00:02:11.036
  • The truth has set you free.
  • 00:02:11.036 --> 00:02:13.672
  • You have freedom, butyou have to walk in it.
  • 00:02:13.672 --> 00:02:17.142
  • In order to walk in thefreedom that you already have,
  • 00:02:17.142 --> 00:02:20.479
  • you have to be audacious.
  • 00:02:20.479 --> 00:02:23.015
  • You have to have boldness.
  • 00:02:23.015 --> 00:02:24.183
  • You have to be, as Jesus said,
  • 00:02:24.183 --> 00:02:26.018
  • the violent enterthe kingdom of God.
  • 00:02:26.018 --> 00:02:28.854
  • You have to havethis holy courage.
  • 00:02:28.854 --> 00:02:32.291
  • Give me libertyor give me death.
  • 00:02:32.291 --> 00:02:35.894
  • One of the placesthat I absolutely
  • 00:02:35.894 --> 00:02:39.698
  • do not like to go(laughs) it's a pet store.
  • 00:02:39.698 --> 00:02:43.468
  • I love cats and dogs andall kinds of birds and pets,
  • 00:02:44.870 --> 00:02:48.974
  • and when you gointo a pet store,
  • 00:02:48.974 --> 00:02:50.876
  • you see cats and dogs andeverything but it's so sad.
  • 00:02:50.876 --> 00:02:55.113
  • They're in cages.
  • 00:02:55.113 --> 00:02:56.915
  • They're behind bars.
  • 00:02:56.915 --> 00:02:58.917
  • And it's just a horrible scene.
  • 00:02:58.917 --> 00:03:01.053
  • Every time I go in thereit grieves my heart
  • 00:03:01.053 --> 00:03:02.921
  • and makes me sad andit's because dogswere made to be free.
  • 00:03:02.921 --> 00:03:07.659
  • They're made to run.
  • 00:03:07.659 --> 00:03:08.660
  • Cats were made to walk around.
  • 00:03:08.660 --> 00:03:10.929
  • Birds were made to fly.
  • 00:03:10.929 --> 00:03:12.364
  • Fish were made to gowherever they want to go.
  • 00:03:12.364 --> 00:03:14.900
  • But in a pet store they'rein captivity and it's so sad.
  • 00:03:14.900 --> 00:03:19.371
  • Well, I remember Iwatched a movie years ago.
  • 00:03:19.371 --> 00:03:21.840
  • It was called Born Free.
  • 00:03:21.840 --> 00:03:23.675
  • It was about a little lioncub that was born free
  • 00:03:23.675 --> 00:03:25.911
  • but it was held incaptivity for a while,
  • 00:03:25.911 --> 00:03:28.513
  • but it was meant to be free,and it's the same with people.
  • 00:03:28.513 --> 00:03:32.017
  • We were born free, butsomewhere along the line
  • 00:03:32.017 --> 00:03:36.555
  • we get into captivity,into slavery.
  • 00:03:36.555 --> 00:03:39.891
  • People are captive to addictions
  • 00:03:39.891 --> 00:03:42.861
  • such as drinking andgambling and overeating,
  • 00:03:42.861 --> 00:03:45.998
  • drugs, sex, whatever it may be.
  • 00:03:45.998 --> 00:03:48.467
  • But I want you to knowif you have an addition,
  • 00:03:48.467 --> 00:03:51.470
  • Jesus has set you free.
  • 00:03:51.470 --> 00:03:54.306
  • You just have to beable to walk in it,
  • 00:03:54.306 --> 00:03:56.808
  • and part of walkingin it is to have
  • 00:03:56.808 --> 00:03:58.610
  • this holy determination, giveme liberty or give me death.
  • 00:03:58.610 --> 00:04:03.615
  • Unhealthy lifestyles suchas watching too much TV.
  • 00:04:05.050 --> 00:04:07.486
  • Other people are inbondage when it comes
  • 00:04:07.486 --> 00:04:09.354
  • to mental strongholdslike negativity, fear,
  • 00:04:09.354 --> 00:04:14.126
  • worry, doubt, and you canfeel stuck in these things.
  • 00:04:15.560 --> 00:04:19.131
  • Well I want you toknow that Jesus came
  • 00:04:19.131 --> 00:04:20.999
  • to set the captives free.
  • 00:04:20.999 --> 00:04:23.368
  • In other words, youdon't have to stay stuck
  • 00:04:23.368 --> 00:04:25.404
  • in negativity ordoubts or worry.
  • 00:04:25.404 --> 00:04:28.674
  • You can be positive andcourageous and peaceful.
  • 00:04:28.674 --> 00:04:33.679
  • So many people Italk to are resentful
  • 00:04:34.780 --> 00:04:37.683
  • about things thathave happened to them,
  • 00:04:37.683 --> 00:04:39.351
  • people that have hurt them,and it's hard for them
  • 00:04:39.351 --> 00:04:42.087
  • to let it go and theyfeel like they're captive.
  • 00:04:42.087 --> 00:04:45.657
  • So people that are in prisonswith iron bars in jails,
  • 00:04:45.657 --> 00:04:50.662
  • and I do ministerto those folks too
  • 00:04:52.497 --> 00:04:54.399
  • and they watch me on television,
  • 00:04:54.399 --> 00:04:56.335
  • those aren't theonly ones with bars.
  • 00:04:56.335 --> 00:04:59.104
  • People that areaddicted, bad habits,
  • 00:04:59.104 --> 00:05:03.075
  • mental strongholds,emotional wounds,
  • 00:05:03.075 --> 00:05:07.612
  • are putting self-imposedbars in their life,
  • 00:05:07.612 --> 00:05:12.050
  • and what I want you to know,and I've said it before,
  • 00:05:12.050 --> 00:05:14.953
  • is that wherever you arestuck there's good news
  • 00:05:14.953 --> 00:05:18.156
  • and the good news is thatthere is freedom for you.
  • 00:05:18.156 --> 00:05:22.427
  • The truth will set youfree, and the truth
  • 00:05:22.427 --> 00:05:26.431
  • is that Jesus went to thecross and suffered on the cross
  • 00:05:26.431 --> 00:05:31.436
  • so that we could walk inthe freedom that is ours.
  • 00:05:32.871 --> 00:05:35.807
  • Our culture is giving us a lie,
  • 00:05:35.807 --> 00:05:39.344
  • and our culture isbasically saying,
  • 00:05:39.344 --> 00:05:41.046
  • do what you want and enjoy it.
  • 00:05:41.046 --> 00:05:44.683
  • Have all the pleasuresthat you want.
  • 00:05:44.683 --> 00:05:47.185
  • And then when youget stuck in it,
  • 00:05:47.185 --> 00:05:48.954
  • what our culture is telling us
  • 00:05:48.954 --> 00:05:50.455
  • is that you can't change,and that is such a lie,
  • 00:05:50.455 --> 00:05:53.692
  • and the truth will set you free.
  • 00:05:53.692 --> 00:05:55.927
  • And the truth isthat you can change.
  • 00:05:57.062 --> 00:06:00.632
  • You don't have to stay stuck.
  • 00:06:00.632 --> 00:06:02.701
  • You don't have to be imprisoned,
  • 00:06:03.802 --> 00:06:06.405
  • whether it be in yourmind or emotions,
  • 00:06:06.405 --> 00:06:08.306
  • your habits, youraddictions, whatever it is.
  • 00:06:08.306 --> 00:06:11.376
  • The truth is that you can beliberated and walk in freedom.
  • 00:06:11.376 --> 00:06:15.347
  • Well I don't know aboutyou, like Patrick Henry,
  • 00:06:16.548 --> 00:06:19.351
  • I have this holyaudacity to say,
  • 00:06:19.351 --> 00:06:23.655
  • give me libertyor give me death.
  • 00:06:23.655 --> 00:06:26.491
  • I have determined, I've madethis inner vow to myself
  • 00:06:26.491 --> 00:06:30.028
  • that I am not gonna be captiveto anybody or anything.
  • 00:06:30.028 --> 00:06:34.933
  • I am going to walkin the freedom
  • 00:06:36.067 --> 00:06:39.404
  • that Jesus Christdied for me to have.
  • 00:06:39.404 --> 00:06:42.374
  • That's part of our heritageas followers of Christ.
  • 00:06:42.374 --> 00:06:46.344
  • That's part of ourheritage as Christians,
  • 00:06:46.344 --> 00:06:48.914
  • that we can walk infreedom, and I want you
  • 00:06:48.914 --> 00:06:52.818
  • to have that sameaudacity if you will
  • 00:06:52.818 --> 00:06:57.322
  • Patrick Henry had when he said,
  • 00:06:57.322 --> 00:06:59.024
  • give me libertyor give me death.
  • 00:06:59.024 --> 00:07:01.026
  • And when you think aboutit, freedom is in our DNA.
  • 00:07:01.026 --> 00:07:06.031
  • I think about thecountry that we live in
  • 00:07:07.132 --> 00:07:10.135
  • here in the United States,
  • 00:07:10.135 --> 00:07:11.570
  • and our Constitutionis based on freedom.
  • 00:07:12.771 --> 00:07:16.174
  • Freedom.
  • 00:07:17.108 --> 00:07:18.076
  • The First Amendment for example
  • 00:07:19.110 --> 00:07:20.745
  • talks about thefreedom of speech,
  • 00:07:20.745 --> 00:07:23.548
  • the freedom of religion,the freedom of press,
  • 00:07:23.548 --> 00:07:27.285
  • the freedom to assemble.
  • 00:07:27.285 --> 00:07:29.087
  • Then the Bill of Rights,the freedom to bear arms.
  • 00:07:29.087 --> 00:07:32.157
  • So we're used toall these freedoms.
  • 00:07:32.157 --> 00:07:34.726
  • The Declaration ofIndependence for example
  • 00:07:34.726 --> 00:07:37.629
  • proclaims the rightto life, liberty,
  • 00:07:37.629 --> 00:07:41.566
  • and the pursuit of happiness.
  • 00:07:41.566 --> 00:07:44.302
  • So our country wasfounded on freedom.
  • 00:07:44.302 --> 00:07:48.173
  • We're very used to ithere in the United States
  • 00:07:48.173 --> 00:07:51.176
  • that freedom is our heritage.
  • 00:07:51.176 --> 00:07:54.112
  • We all remember the speech thatDr. Martin Luther King gave
  • 00:07:54.112 --> 00:07:58.750
  • and it was called theI Have A Dream Speech
  • 00:07:58.750 --> 00:08:02.087
  • where he talked abouthoping that his children
  • 00:08:02.087 --> 00:08:05.490
  • wouldn't be judged bythe color of the skin
  • 00:08:05.490 --> 00:08:07.993
  • but rather on the contentof their character.
  • 00:08:07.993 --> 00:08:11.263
  • And remember during that speech,
  • 00:08:11.263 --> 00:08:14.199
  • it was at the Assembly Mallthere in Washington, D.C.,
  • 00:08:14.199 --> 00:08:19.104
  • he said, free at last.
  • 00:08:19.104 --> 00:08:21.339
  • Free at last.
  • 00:08:21.339 --> 00:08:22.908
  • Thank God Almightywe're free at last.
  • 00:08:22.908 --> 00:08:25.544
  • Then everybody applauded.
  • 00:08:25.544 --> 00:08:27.112
  • Because that's our heritagehere in the United States,
  • 00:08:27.112 --> 00:08:29.014
  • and not just the United States,
  • 00:08:29.014 --> 00:08:30.916
  • it's your heritage whereveryou are watching this program.
  • 00:08:30.916 --> 00:08:34.452
  • Many places in the world.
  • 00:08:34.452 --> 00:08:36.721
  • Freedom, as a believer ofChrist, we have freedom.
  • 00:08:36.721 --> 00:08:41.726
  • I come from Massachusetts.
  • 00:08:42.594 --> 00:08:44.062
  • I was born in a littletown called Feeding Hills,
  • 00:08:44.062 --> 00:08:47.165
  • Massachusetts, one ofthe original 13 Colonies,
  • 00:08:47.165 --> 00:08:50.802
  • and I remember in history class,
  • 00:08:50.802 --> 00:08:52.804
  • certainly growingup in Massachusetts
  • 00:08:52.804 --> 00:08:54.739
  • and learning aboutit in history,
  • 00:08:54.739 --> 00:08:56.575
  • we grew up with theRevolutionary War.
  • 00:08:56.575 --> 00:08:58.843
  • There was the Boston Tea Party.
  • 00:08:58.843 --> 00:09:00.445
  • We broke free from England.
  • 00:09:00.445 --> 00:09:02.147
  • It was all about freedom.
  • 00:09:02.147 --> 00:09:03.782
  • And I remember whenI went to Boston,
  • 00:09:03.782 --> 00:09:05.617
  • they actually have a placethere called The Freedom Trail
  • 00:09:05.617 --> 00:09:08.653
  • that you can walk on,and when you go down
  • 00:09:08.653 --> 00:09:10.956
  • The Freedom Trailyou learn all about
  • 00:09:10.956 --> 00:09:12.591
  • the ride of PaulRevere and how he said,
  • 00:09:12.591 --> 00:09:15.594
  • one if by land, two if bysea, the British are coming.
  • 00:09:15.594 --> 00:09:19.397
  • And then of course the battlesof Lexington and Concord,
  • 00:09:19.397 --> 00:09:22.467
  • and all the freedomthat was fought for
  • 00:09:22.467 --> 00:09:26.638
  • there in Massachusetts.
  • 00:09:26.638 --> 00:09:28.573
  • We grew up withthat as our history.
  • 00:09:28.573 --> 00:09:31.009
  • And I remember rightjust north of us
  • 00:09:31.009 --> 00:09:33.812
  • we have our friends andneighbors to the north
  • 00:09:33.812 --> 00:09:38.283
  • in New Hampshire.
  • 00:09:38.283 --> 00:09:39.818
  • They have a license plate,it says live free or die.
  • 00:09:39.818 --> 00:09:42.954
  • It's kind of like Patrick Henry.
  • 00:09:42.954 --> 00:09:44.623
  • Give me libertyor give me death.
  • 00:09:44.623 --> 00:09:46.658
  • So I'm trying to giveyou a little background
  • 00:09:46.658 --> 00:09:48.226
  • about freedom, thatit's our heritage.
  • 00:09:48.226 --> 00:09:50.762
  • It's in our DNA.
  • 00:09:50.762 --> 00:09:52.897
  • It's part of who we are ascitizens of the United States
  • 00:09:52.897 --> 00:09:56.935
  • and as citizens of heaven.
  • 00:09:56.935 --> 00:09:59.471
  • Freedom is part andparcel of who we are.
  • 00:09:59.471 --> 00:10:02.641
  • I remember NeilDiamond sang a song
  • 00:10:02.641 --> 00:10:05.176
  • called Coming ToAmerica, and it has to do
  • 00:10:05.176 --> 00:10:08.747
  • with people from allaround the world,
  • 00:10:08.747 --> 00:10:10.815
  • immigrants who arecoming to America.
  • 00:10:10.815 --> 00:10:13.918
  • As we know rightnow we're having
  • 00:10:13.918 --> 00:10:16.388
  • an immigrant problemat our southern border.
  • 00:10:16.388 --> 00:10:19.824
  • It's because people inSouth America and Mexico
  • 00:10:19.824 --> 00:10:23.194
  • that are beingoppressed by regimes
  • 00:10:23.194 --> 00:10:25.397
  • that are harsh and quitefrankly are unjust,
  • 00:10:25.397 --> 00:10:30.402
  • they are willing to risk deathbecause they want freedom,
  • 00:10:31.803 --> 00:10:34.773
  • so freedom is suchan important virtue
  • 00:10:35.940 --> 00:10:40.612
  • that we can embrace.
  • 00:10:41.346 --> 00:10:42.614
  • We're so used to itin the United States
  • 00:10:42.614 --> 00:10:45.250
  • and somehow we have to realize
  • 00:10:45.250 --> 00:10:47.252
  • what a precious gift that it is.
  • 00:10:47.252 --> 00:10:49.621
  • So, one million peoplea year are coming
  • 00:10:49.621 --> 00:10:52.757
  • to the United Statesbecause they want freedom.
  • 00:10:52.757 --> 00:10:54.926
  • I remember one time Iwent to Philadelphia,
  • 00:10:54.926 --> 00:10:58.396
  • and in Philadelphia,again, that's a great site
  • 00:10:58.396 --> 00:11:01.099
  • of the Revolutionary War, Icame upon the Liberty Bell.
  • 00:11:01.099 --> 00:11:05.603
  • The Liberty Bell of courseis a great symbol of freedom.
  • 00:11:05.603 --> 00:11:09.040
  • There's an inscription on it,
  • 00:11:09.040 --> 00:11:10.842
  • proclaim libertythroughout the land.
  • 00:11:10.842 --> 00:11:12.911
  • That comes from Leviticuschapter 25 verse 10.
  • 00:11:12.911 --> 00:11:17.048
  • But as I looked atthe Liberty Bell
  • 00:11:17.048 --> 00:11:18.450
  • I found somethingkind of strange.
  • 00:11:18.450 --> 00:11:19.984
  • It had a crack in it.
  • 00:11:19.984 --> 00:11:21.986
  • Of course it was cracked onetime early on when it was rung.
  • 00:11:21.986 --> 00:11:25.623
  • And I thought to myself, Iwonder if that's symbolic,
  • 00:11:25.623 --> 00:11:29.761
  • that the LibertyBell has a crack.
  • 00:11:29.761 --> 00:11:32.397
  • And as I thought aboutit, I thought about,
  • 00:11:32.397 --> 00:11:35.633
  • we have liberty herein the United States,
  • 00:11:35.633 --> 00:11:37.535
  • but sometimes there'san abuse of liberty.
  • 00:11:37.535 --> 00:11:41.406
  • Prayer has been takenout of the schools.
  • 00:11:41.406 --> 00:11:44.576
  • The Ten Commandmentshave been taken
  • 00:11:44.576 --> 00:11:46.111
  • out of public buildings.
  • 00:11:46.111 --> 00:11:48.513
  • Abortion has been legalized.
  • 00:11:48.513 --> 00:11:50.749
  • Yeah, we have freedom,but in some ways
  • 00:11:50.749 --> 00:11:53.218
  • we have abused that freedom,so we have to be careful.
  • 00:11:53.218 --> 00:11:57.155
  • Then there are othersymbols of the United States
  • 00:11:57.155 --> 00:12:00.158
  • and the freedom, and ofcourse right by Ellis Island
  • 00:12:00.158 --> 00:12:04.095
  • as you come into,and that's where
  • 00:12:04.095 --> 00:12:05.363
  • a lot of the immigrantshave come in,
  • 00:12:05.363 --> 00:12:06.898
  • right by Ellis Island, thegreat symbol of freedom,
  • 00:12:06.898 --> 00:12:09.634
  • it came from France, LadyLiberty, the Statue of Liberty,
  • 00:12:09.634 --> 00:12:14.539
  • right there gracing our harbor.
  • 00:12:15.406 --> 00:12:16.841
  • And this is exactlywhat the United States
  • 00:12:16.841 --> 00:12:19.110
  • stands for, freedom.
  • 00:12:19.110 --> 00:12:20.678
  • We are used to freedom.
  • 00:12:20.678 --> 00:12:21.713
  • And then of course the Bible,
  • 00:12:21.713 --> 00:12:23.047
  • all over the placein the scriptures.
  • 00:12:23.047 --> 00:12:25.016
  • It's all about freedom.
  • 00:12:25.884 --> 00:12:27.318
  • For example the greatmetaphor of the great story
  • 00:12:27.318 --> 00:12:29.387
  • of freedom in the OldTestament had to do with Moses
  • 00:12:29.387 --> 00:12:33.358
  • and the Hebrews beingcaptive in Egypt.
  • 00:12:33.358 --> 00:12:36.427
  • And of course Godraised up Moses
  • 00:12:36.427 --> 00:12:39.497
  • so that the captivescould be set free,
  • 00:12:39.497 --> 00:12:42.300
  • and he put Moses beforePharaoh and he said,
  • 00:12:42.300 --> 00:12:45.804
  • let my people go.
  • 00:12:45.804 --> 00:12:47.872
  • And that's what he saysto those who are addicted,
  • 00:12:47.872 --> 00:12:51.109
  • those who are stuckin bad habits,
  • 00:12:51.109 --> 00:12:53.344
  • those who havemental strongholds,
  • 00:12:53.344 --> 00:12:55.647
  • those who areemotionally wounded.
  • 00:12:55.647 --> 00:12:58.983
  • Let my people go.
  • 00:12:58.983 --> 00:13:01.152
  • Right now as you'rewatching this program,
  • 00:13:01.152 --> 00:13:03.454
  • I believe that there'sliberation, there'sfreedom for you.
  • 00:13:03.454 --> 00:13:08.159
  • Then when Jesus came tothe synagogue in Nazareth,
  • 00:13:08.159 --> 00:13:11.729
  • it was his inauguralsermon, his first sermon,
  • 00:13:11.729 --> 00:13:15.400
  • he stands up and he quotesthe prophet Isaiah chapter 61,
  • 00:13:15.400 --> 00:13:19.537
  • and he says, the Spiritof the Lord is upon me
  • 00:13:19.537 --> 00:13:22.040
  • because he has anointedme, and he said
  • 00:13:22.040 --> 00:13:24.475
  • to proclaim freedom to captives,release to those in prison.
  • 00:13:24.475 --> 00:13:29.480
  • So that was Jesus' mission,to set people free.
  • 00:13:30.949 --> 00:13:34.485
  • When I was ordained apriest I had that read
  • 00:13:34.485 --> 00:13:36.554
  • at my ordinationbecause I believe
  • 00:13:36.554 --> 00:13:38.256
  • that priests are liberators.
  • 00:13:38.256 --> 00:13:39.858
  • If you will, priestsare freedom fighters,
  • 00:13:41.025 --> 00:13:43.394
  • and that's exactly what I'mdoing in this program right now.
  • 00:13:43.394 --> 00:13:45.864
  • I am fighting for your freedom.
  • 00:13:45.864 --> 00:13:48.266
  • I want you to know thatthe truth sets you free,
  • 00:13:48.266 --> 00:13:51.669
  • the truth that you don'thave to stay stuck,
  • 00:13:51.669 --> 00:13:53.838
  • the truth that Jesus died foryou on the cross to be free,
  • 00:13:53.838 --> 00:13:57.275
  • and the truth that ifyou have determination
  • 00:13:57.275 --> 00:14:00.178
  • and a holy audacity,you don't have
  • 00:14:00.178 --> 00:14:02.747
  • to stay captive to anything.
  • 00:14:02.747 --> 00:14:05.383
  • I'm a freedom fighter,and that's who we are
  • 00:14:05.383 --> 00:14:07.218
  • as Catholic priests.
  • 00:14:07.218 --> 00:14:08.720
  • So, a couple ofimages about freedom.
  • 00:14:08.720 --> 00:14:12.657
  • I want you to knowthat freedom means
  • 00:14:12.657 --> 00:14:14.525
  • that you don't haveto be imprisoned,
  • 00:14:14.525 --> 00:14:16.561
  • that you have a right toliberty, and we all crave that.
  • 00:14:16.561 --> 00:14:21.232
  • As I said, it's in our DNA.
  • 00:14:21.232 --> 00:14:23.268
  • People have died for this.
  • 00:14:23.268 --> 00:14:25.670
  • You see, freedom isn't free.
  • 00:14:25.670 --> 00:14:29.474
  • I remember when I wentto Washington, D.C.,
  • 00:14:29.474 --> 00:14:32.377
  • went to the Vietnam Memorialif you've ever seen it,
  • 00:14:32.377 --> 00:14:35.313
  • thousands of namesetched into marble
  • 00:14:35.313 --> 00:14:38.583
  • at this Vietnam Memorial.
  • 00:14:38.583 --> 00:14:40.518
  • People who have diedfor our freedom.
  • 00:14:40.518 --> 00:14:43.154
  • Then I went to theArlington National Cemetery,
  • 00:14:43.154 --> 00:14:46.658
  • and as you go there yousee tens of thousands
  • 00:14:46.658 --> 00:14:49.260
  • of people that havedied, men and women,
  • 00:14:49.260 --> 00:14:51.863
  • World War I, World WarII, the Korean War,
  • 00:14:51.863 --> 00:14:54.899
  • all these different wars.
  • 00:14:54.899 --> 00:14:57.068
  • Then I think about allthe veterans who have had
  • 00:14:57.068 --> 00:15:00.738
  • posttraumatic stress syndrome
  • 00:15:00.738 --> 00:15:02.974
  • and who have gone throughwoundedness, wounded warriors.
  • 00:15:02.974 --> 00:15:06.811
  • See, freedom isn't free.
  • 00:15:06.811 --> 00:15:08.513
  • There's a cost to freedom,and in the same way,
  • 00:15:08.513 --> 00:15:12.951
  • Jesus was put todeath upon a cross.
  • 00:15:12.951 --> 00:15:15.753
  • It was for you and for me.
  • 00:15:17.155 --> 00:15:19.891
  • He paid the price.
  • 00:15:19.891 --> 00:15:24.595
  • We owe a debt we could not pay.
  • 00:15:26.030 --> 00:15:28.700
  • He paid a debt he did not owe
  • 00:15:29.801 --> 00:15:32.103
  • and he paid it for youand he paid it for me.
  • 00:15:33.304 --> 00:15:36.507
  • Some people think that freedom,
  • 00:15:36.507 --> 00:15:38.843
  • they have thiskind of false idea,
  • 00:15:38.843 --> 00:15:40.378
  • and this is one of the liesthat our culture gives to us.
  • 00:15:40.378 --> 00:15:43.514
  • Some people think thatfreedom is different
  • 00:15:43.514 --> 00:15:47.652
  • from what our scripturestell us freedom is.
  • 00:15:47.652 --> 00:15:51.456
  • Some people thinkfreedom is going
  • 00:15:51.456 --> 00:15:53.491
  • in a Corvette with the top down
  • 00:15:53.491 --> 00:15:55.360
  • and your hair is flyingfree, or some people think
  • 00:15:55.360 --> 00:15:59.163
  • that freedom is beingon a sailboat out there
  • 00:15:59.163 --> 00:16:01.733
  • away from your responsibilities.
  • 00:16:01.733 --> 00:16:04.102
  • While those things arefun, that's not freedom.
  • 00:16:04.102 --> 00:16:07.638
  • And then some peoplethink that freedom
  • 00:16:07.638 --> 00:16:10.141
  • has to do with, if youremember back in the 60s
  • 00:16:10.141 --> 00:16:12.443
  • the hippie movement.
  • 00:16:12.443 --> 00:16:14.045
  • You remember the hippies.
  • 00:16:14.045 --> 00:16:15.313
  • They had free love andlong hair and tattoos
  • 00:16:15.313 --> 00:16:19.751
  • and earrings and drugs and sex
  • 00:16:19.751 --> 00:16:21.819
  • and rock n' roll and all that.
  • 00:16:21.819 --> 00:16:23.855
  • Do what you wanna do.
  • 00:16:23.855 --> 00:16:25.390
  • If it feels good, do it.
  • 00:16:25.390 --> 00:16:27.392
  • Some people think thatthat's what freedom is.
  • 00:16:27.392 --> 00:16:29.694
  • Just live as you want to live.
  • 00:16:30.661 --> 00:16:33.965
  • Whatever pleasure comesdown the pike, do it.
  • 00:16:33.965 --> 00:16:36.601
  • Well what happened withthe hippie movement
  • 00:16:36.601 --> 00:16:39.670
  • was it led tounwanted pregnancies,
  • 00:16:39.670 --> 00:16:44.075
  • sexually transmitteddiseases, hangovers,
  • 00:16:44.075 --> 00:16:48.312
  • addictions,depression, and misery.
  • 00:16:48.312 --> 00:16:52.650
  • You see, it's an illusion.
  • 00:16:52.650 --> 00:16:55.286
  • That type of freedomisn't freedom.
  • 00:16:55.286 --> 00:16:58.423
  • It's bondage.
  • 00:16:58.423 --> 00:17:00.892
  • Rather, I was talkingto a counselor one time
  • 00:17:00.892 --> 00:17:04.062
  • and I asked him hisdefinition of freedom,
  • 00:17:04.062 --> 00:17:06.197
  • a psychological counselor,and this is what he told me.
  • 00:17:07.632 --> 00:17:10.768
  • It took me a littlewhile to figure this out.
  • 00:17:10.768 --> 00:17:12.537
  • He said, freedom iswhen you're comfortable
  • 00:17:12.537 --> 00:17:15.740
  • within your harness.
  • 00:17:15.740 --> 00:17:17.975
  • And I had to think about that.
  • 00:17:17.975 --> 00:17:19.477
  • Kind of like aharness on a horse.
  • 00:17:19.477 --> 00:17:21.446
  • How can you be freeif you have a harness,
  • 00:17:21.446 --> 00:17:23.281
  • because isn't that bondage?
  • 00:17:23.281 --> 00:17:25.416
  • But as he explained it, hesaid, everybody has a harness.
  • 00:17:25.416 --> 00:17:29.053
  • Your harness is your vocation.
  • 00:17:29.053 --> 00:17:31.222
  • Marriage, priesthood,being a student,
  • 00:17:31.222 --> 00:17:35.059
  • whatever your job is.
  • 00:17:35.059 --> 00:17:37.161
  • Your vocation inlife is your harness.
  • 00:17:37.161 --> 00:17:39.964
  • Freedom isn't fleeing from it,
  • 00:17:39.964 --> 00:17:44.368
  • somehow always going onvacation and sailboating
  • 00:17:44.368 --> 00:17:48.539
  • and flying somewhereand getting away
  • 00:17:48.539 --> 00:17:50.541
  • from your responsibilities,but rather freedom
  • 00:17:50.541 --> 00:17:53.111
  • is embracing yourresponsibilities,
  • 00:17:53.111 --> 00:17:56.581
  • being determined,being virtuous,
  • 00:17:57.748 --> 00:18:02.086
  • right in the middleof your call,
  • 00:18:02.086 --> 00:18:04.856
  • right in the middleof your vocation.
  • 00:18:04.856 --> 00:18:07.091
  • And when you areresponsible and committed
  • 00:18:07.091 --> 00:18:10.194
  • to your marriage, to yourvocation, to your call,
  • 00:18:10.194 --> 00:18:15.133
  • you will find thatyou have freedom.
  • 00:18:16.334 --> 00:18:18.936
  • When you do God's will youwill find an inner joy.
  • 00:18:18.936 --> 00:18:23.941
  • When you are obedientyou will find
  • 00:18:25.009 --> 00:18:27.612
  • that God gives you somethingthat the world cannot give you,
  • 00:18:27.612 --> 00:18:31.682
  • a peace that surpassesall understanding.
  • 00:18:31.682 --> 00:18:34.752
  • So right in the middle of yourharness you can have freedom.
  • 00:18:34.752 --> 00:18:38.456
  • Don't believe the lie thatthe culture gives you,
  • 00:18:38.456 --> 00:18:43.261
  • that you have to, again,have a second childhood
  • 00:18:43.261 --> 00:18:48.266
  • and drive a convertibleor fly somewhere else.
  • 00:18:49.433 --> 00:18:53.304
  • That'll make you free,or live as a hippie.
  • 00:18:53.304 --> 00:18:56.807
  • That's not freedom.
  • 00:18:56.807 --> 00:18:58.876
  • Freedom is being virtuous,having integrity,
  • 00:18:58.876 --> 00:19:03.881
  • living right in themiddle of your commitment.
  • 00:19:05.249 --> 00:19:07.018
  • So, are you stuck in anyarea of your life right now?
  • 00:19:07.018 --> 00:19:12.023
  • Is there an addiction?
  • 00:19:12.757 --> 00:19:14.725
  • Have you believed thelie of the culture
  • 00:19:14.725 --> 00:19:16.661
  • and gone after pleasureand gotten stuck
  • 00:19:16.661 --> 00:19:18.963
  • in some type of ahabitual addiction
  • 00:19:18.963 --> 00:19:22.033
  • or some type of a habit?
  • 00:19:22.033 --> 00:19:24.969
  • Do you have a mentalstronghold of some sort
  • 00:19:24.969 --> 00:19:28.005
  • of negativity or bitterness,and emotional anger,
  • 00:19:28.005 --> 00:19:32.410
  • that type of a thing?
  • 00:19:32.410 --> 00:19:34.045
  • I want you to think rightnow, where are you stuck?
  • 00:19:34.045 --> 00:19:38.115
  • The truth will set you free.
  • 00:19:40.284 --> 00:19:44.021
  • Have a holy audacity likePatrick Henry, and say,
  • 00:19:45.489 --> 00:19:50.261
  • give me libertyor give me death.
  • 00:19:51.462 --> 00:19:54.098
  • And I want you to knowthat you are free.
  • 00:19:55.566 --> 00:19:58.736
  • I heard this story abouta dog that was chained
  • 00:19:59.937 --> 00:20:03.241
  • with a leash to a stake, hadabout 25 feet that he could go
  • 00:20:03.241 --> 00:20:08.212
  • and what would happenis, he would go
  • 00:20:09.447 --> 00:20:11.849
  • to the end of his 25 feetand it would pull on his neck
  • 00:20:11.849 --> 00:20:14.919
  • in a real hard way andstart to choke him.
  • 00:20:14.919 --> 00:20:18.189
  • So what would happenis, a dog would go by
  • 00:20:18.189 --> 00:20:20.391
  • and he'd see the dog andhe'd run to the end of it
  • 00:20:20.391 --> 00:20:22.260
  • and start to chokeand he'd be barking,
  • 00:20:22.260 --> 00:20:23.995
  • trying to get to that dog.
  • 00:20:23.995 --> 00:20:25.630
  • And then a little whilelater a little kitty cat
  • 00:20:25.630 --> 00:20:28.299
  • would come by thattormented that dog
  • 00:20:28.299 --> 00:20:30.968
  • because the cat knew thatthe dog couldn't chase him
  • 00:20:30.968 --> 00:20:33.671
  • because of the leash,and he'd get to the end
  • 00:20:33.671 --> 00:20:36.040
  • of that leash, 25 feet, andit would pull on his neck
  • 00:20:36.040 --> 00:20:38.676
  • and it would start tochoke him and he'd bark
  • 00:20:38.676 --> 00:20:40.511
  • and it hurt the dog.
  • 00:20:40.511 --> 00:20:42.013
  • And finally one dayafter months of that,
  • 00:20:42.013 --> 00:20:46.150
  • the owner unhooked theleash from the stake
  • 00:20:46.150 --> 00:20:50.154
  • and the dog didn't knowit, and sure enough
  • 00:20:50.154 --> 00:20:53.291
  • the neighbor's dogran by and the dog
  • 00:20:53.291 --> 00:20:55.960
  • went and he went 25 feet andhe stopped and he barked,
  • 00:20:55.960 --> 00:20:59.397
  • but he didn't gopast that 25 feet.
  • 00:20:59.397 --> 00:21:01.465
  • And then thatneighbor's cat came.
  • 00:21:01.465 --> 00:21:03.134
  • He ran and he went to the25 feet and he stopped
  • 00:21:03.134 --> 00:21:06.337
  • and he barked at the cat,but little did he know,
  • 00:21:06.337 --> 00:21:08.506
  • he could have chased that cat.
  • 00:21:08.506 --> 00:21:09.774
  • He could have eaten that cat.
  • 00:21:09.774 --> 00:21:11.175
  • He was free to go, buthe had been conditioned
  • 00:21:11.175 --> 00:21:15.079
  • from the past, from all thetimes that he had choked
  • 00:21:15.079 --> 00:21:18.382
  • from that chain,from that bondage,
  • 00:21:18.382 --> 00:21:20.885
  • from that slavery thathe had with the leash.
  • 00:21:20.885 --> 00:21:23.721
  • Even though hehad been set free,
  • 00:21:23.721 --> 00:21:26.357
  • he stopped right at thatpoint, that 25-foot point,
  • 00:21:26.357 --> 00:21:30.628
  • and in the same way,when Jesus died for you
  • 00:21:30.628 --> 00:21:33.698
  • on the cross, you were set free.
  • 00:21:33.698 --> 00:21:36.834
  • The truth will set you free.
  • 00:21:36.834 --> 00:21:38.436
  • The truth is that youdon't have to stay stuck.
  • 00:21:38.436 --> 00:21:40.604
  • The truth is that Jesusdied for you to be free,
  • 00:21:40.604 --> 00:21:43.007
  • and the truth isthat you are now free
  • 00:21:43.007 --> 00:21:45.476
  • and with determinationand with grace,
  • 00:21:45.476 --> 00:21:48.546
  • you can face your fears,face whatever's holding you
  • 00:21:48.546 --> 00:21:52.216
  • bondage, and walk in freedom.
  • 00:21:52.216 --> 00:21:54.118
  • And again, I'm gonna go backto Patrick Henry and say,
  • 00:21:54.118 --> 00:21:56.887
  • give me libertyor give me death.
  • 00:21:56.887 --> 00:22:00.658
  • I remember a woman wroteme one time and she said,
  • 00:22:00.658 --> 00:22:02.793
  • father, I committed anabortion and I heard you speak,
  • 00:22:02.793 --> 00:22:07.264
  • and she said, for yearsI've been beating myself up
  • 00:22:07.264 --> 00:22:09.767
  • with guilt.
  • 00:22:09.767 --> 00:22:10.601
  • I was just stuck there.
  • 00:22:10.601 --> 00:22:11.802
  • And she said, I realizethat now I'm free
  • 00:22:11.802 --> 00:22:14.505
  • and I can let go of the guilt.
  • 00:22:15.373 --> 00:22:17.375
  • And yes, Jesus was wounded.
  • 00:22:17.375 --> 00:22:20.945
  • His precious blood.
  • 00:22:20.945 --> 00:22:21.979
  • There's power in the blood.
  • 00:22:21.979 --> 00:22:24.582
  • His precious bloodhas set you free
  • 00:22:24.582 --> 00:22:27.618
  • from guilt and shame and sin.
  • 00:22:27.618 --> 00:22:30.521
  • I got anotherletter from a woman.
  • 00:22:30.521 --> 00:22:32.189
  • She said she hadsmoked for years.
  • 00:22:32.189 --> 00:22:34.525
  • She was addicted to cigarettes.
  • 00:22:34.525 --> 00:22:36.260
  • She heard myprogram and she said
  • 00:22:36.260 --> 00:22:38.329
  • she realized that shecould turn away from that,
  • 00:22:38.329 --> 00:22:41.165
  • and she sent me thatletter and she said,
  • 00:22:41.165 --> 00:22:42.800
  • for three months now I'vebeen free from smoking
  • 00:22:42.800 --> 00:22:45.870
  • and I believe it's gonna geteven better in the future.

  • Wow.
  • 00:22:48.072 --> 00:22:48.906

  • and you can walkin that freedom.
  • 00:22:52.877 --> 00:22:54.345
  • Whatever your bondage is,it can be an addiction
  • 00:22:54.345 --> 00:22:58.716
  • as I said, it could be topornography, to drinking,

  • to smoking, itcould be to guilt,
  • 00:23:02.453 --> 00:23:04.822
