Turkish Title: Hristiyan'ın Özgürlüğü
Original Title: On The Freedom of a Christian
Author: Martin Luther
Everyone wants to be free. Some work to be free, others fight to be free. But the majority of those who seek to be free cannot find the freedom they are looking for.
Can a person who is acting out of their human desires truly be free? Is someone who can travel where they want and do what they want really free? Is a dictator who is subject to no-one free themselves?
Paul wrote to the Galatians that "It was for freedom that Christ has set us free." And through this verse Martin Luther discovered that the thing that sets a person free is freedom from the pain of their conscience in regard to unforgiven sin.
