Repost: Galatians 5:1 flub…

I was reading through a ministry periodical associated with a certain denomination recently and was stunned by a comment regarding Galatians 5:1 in an interview with a local international pastor.   The comment goes as follows:

(question): What does freedom in Christ mean to you?

(pastor’s answer): Galatians 5:1 tells us the Lord has made us free.  We have many freedoms, especially in America.  Back home under the communist government, Christians could be persecuted, and no one openly said they were Christians.  When we came to America, we experienced freedom to preach, to worship, to witness, to do everything.

I’ll leave it all for you to digest, but this is a classic way of interpreting the Bible in the denomination this international pastor serves in.   I am still not sure what to think.  I guess at this point all I can think is: WOW!
