What is Freedom?

7 10 2008

How do you define “freedom”? Here’s Wolterstorff’s take on why the West has such a hard time understanding the concept of grace.

“Maybe the difficulty of us to grasp grace is heightened by the fact that our society and culture today upholds the freedom to choose as supreme. Quite possibly this is an inhibition to the entryway to an exclusive religion but furthermore and inhibition to live a life where freedom to choose seems diminished.”

Wolterstorff, Nicholas Until Justice and Peace Embrace, p 40.
