Freedom Delayed

Whether physical or spiritual, freedom delayed is slavery. The adversary of freedom is not the one who opposes it outrightly, but the respectable sympathizer who lukewarmly embraces it. According to Martin Luther King, Jr., it’s the one “who paternalistically feels that he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by the myth of time; and who constantly advises … to wait until a ‘more convenient season’.” To such, wait really means never. E.G. White urges: “Do not listen to the enemy’s suggestion to stay away from Christ until you have made yourself better; until you are good enough to come to God. If you wait until then, . . . you will never come.” The right time to do right is right now (2 Corinthians 6:2).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
