Today's democratic system of government in Western nations is based on liberty that is both defined and guaranteed by law. Biblical freedom or liberty is no different. Without law, there can be no effective or lasting liberty.

The very foundations of society—what it means to be a man, a woman, a husband, a wife, a father and a mother—are being cast away without regard for what will replace them.
