fighting for free hearts

You Are Not Your Own

Christianity teaches that when a person enters a relationship with Christ, that person submits to God’s authority. This includes decisions that involve how a person treats and uses his or her physical body.

Our current culture has definite and strong ideas about what a person can do with his or her body.  And the basic premise is that the individual alone makes the determination about what is right and good with regard to the physical body.

Joe Dallas has this piece on Breaking Free, the blog of Covenant Eyes which asserts that our bodies are not our own.

If there is a concept that runs more counter to the understanding most of us have regarding our lives, i can’t think of it. But there is real freedom for us when we embrace the truth Dallas is espousing.
