If you are a Christian, you are radically free. No, I don’t mean you are free with a number of ifs, ands, and buts. I mean you are really free. No disclaimer. No addendum. No qualifying points. You are free. But if that’s true (and it is), then why are so many of us, as Christians, bound by the law? Our focus is wrong.
