Freedom?

“People talk about the liberty of the Christian Church, about giving or not giving freedom to Christians. Underlying all these yeas and expressions there is some strange misconception. Freedom cannot be bestowed on or taken from a Christian or Christians. Freedom is an inalienable possession of the Christian… A Christian cannot fail to be free, because the attainment of the aim he sets before himself cannot be prevented or even hindered by anyone or anything.”
-From The Kingdom of God is Within You by Leo Tolstoy
