INDEPENDENCE


EUPHORIC LIBERATION OR OPPRESSIVE ENCUMBRANCE ?

 If independence refers to some kind of separation whereby we are left to 'live our own lives', would it free us or enslave us ? If it frees us, why then would we hire builders, plumbers, chefs and so on, rather than (practically) delight in the prerogative to 'take care of ourselves' ? Shifting the principle from secular society to (Christian) religion, do we really desire to be 'free' from the living God - who not only provides our literal life and it's fuel (including air and food), but also joy and peace with the promise of a blessed resurrection - just because He doesn't judge what we would consider to be in our favour every single time, and would it really be freedom to serve another god/philosophy (that cannot sustain any of these blessings) just so we could pretend to justice in denouncing the living God's name ?
