    Jn. 8:32- "And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free." There is one thing forever true about the freedom truth brings: the freedom that comes when we know truth - is a 'conditional' freedom. It does not free us from the result of our deeds; the freedom that comes wit truth - is the freedom - to CHOOSE - " ... choose ye this day whom ye will serve ... "; Josh. 24:15.
