Lori, I hope this finds you better. I'll take a stab at your posting of "what does Freedom in Christ" mean???

Only the regenerated soul can find Freedom from sin, Freedom from the lies, Freedom from the guilt, Freedom from the coming Judgement, etc.

Those who are not regenerated cannot be FREE from the bondage that sin brings to them in many numerable ways!

BLade

Thus the question....freedom in Christ...if we are in Christ, aren't we the regenerated?

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins, the gospel of our salvation, and repenting, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -

Yes, that is what it means.

My personal pov is that this phrase reflects the fact that our spirits are freed from the enslaving power of addiction to evil by our rebirth. This idea I find in Paul's letter to the Galatians about freedom from the law. Gal 5: 13 For you, brothers, were called to freedom; but do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh. Rather, serve one another in love. 14 The entire law is fulfilled in a single decree: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  15 But if you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out, or you will be consumed by each other. reflects the idea that our rebirth frees us from sin also.

That we still remember the pleasures and profits of sin and must have our righteousness trained in us to ALWAYS choose righteousness and to serve each other in love, is dealt with in Heb 12:5-11.
