An Ethic of Freedom
As a result the Christian Ethic is an ethic of liberty.
However, this is not to be understood as licence. The believer is only free
when he is doing the will of God. There is no such thing as unlimited freedom.
Freedom always falls within the parameters established by God's word and the
direct leading of the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 3.17). Anything outside this
will lead to renewed bondage. Legalism is the opponent of Christian freedom.
However, freedom is linked to the law of Christ and of faith (Romans 3:27), the
law of the Spirit who will always do what is right (Romans 8:2).
