For Freedom
And the truth will set you free. John 8:32 was a war. It was a war that pitted against one another, people who had joined one another in a war against tyranny in favor of freedom. Eighty years can make a big difference in the culture and loyalties of a people. Slavery became a vital source of manpower and economic survival in the southern two thirds of the country. Several of the northern states no longer practiced the use of slaves. Many people wanted it to be made illegal in every state. Closely aligned with the cultural, economic, and geographic divisions was the division that became the American Civil War. For Abraham Lincoln, the war was a tragedy involved effort to rebuild the unity of this nation. In the course of the division and conflict, slavery became a primary focus and a chief point of contention. For many, the war became a war of freedom. On January 1, 1863, 150 years ago, the Emancipation Proclamation became a part of the laws of this country. The face of the United States changed. From that point forward, the union of this nation was to become a union of liberty that was for all people of all races. There can be no doubt that we live in a greater nation to this day, in part because of that newly valued liberty expressed a century and a half ago. There continue to be struggles for the perception of freedom and equality, but the engagement of it is a fact. We are free. The truth of God in the blood of Christ has granted to us freedom from sin and its consequences. The truth has set us free. Russ
