Transcript of By Justine Demetry-Freedom
'If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed' There are many people throughout history who fought against slavery. Slaves were often whipped and beaten for minor offences. Many of them were shackled up like dogs, surviving only on minimal rations given to them by their masters once a day after a long day's work.
There was one man in particular, Nat Turner who once was a slave himself, who took on an unusual step in the fight against slavery. He thought that he could end this inhumane act by killing the slave masters and their families and setting their slaves free. Nat Turner fought against slavery as he didn't want people to be treated as property where masters could buy or sell them at their own will. He thought that it was wrong for them to own people as slaves and that they had a right to be free. Nat Turner fighting for his rights It wasn't until August 21st that Turner and about seven other slaves killed their masters and their family to launch Turner's rebellion. In all, about 50 whites were killed. Turner went into hiding but was captured six weeks later. He was executed on the 11th of November, 1831.
'The moment a slave resolves that he will no longer be a slave, his chains fall. He frees himself and shows the way to others. Freedom and slavery are mental states' 'The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is courage'
'He who is brave is free' 'Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes' 'We are driven by five genetic needs: survival, love, belonging, power, freedom and fun'
'Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better' 'Man is free at the moment he wishes to be' 'Money won't create success, the freedom to make it, will' Freedom is not just about slavery. There are lots of types of freedom, such as the freedom of choice, speech, Religion and politics. Freedom of Religion FREEDOM OF CHOICE
'As human beings, we are gifted with the freedom of choice and we cannot shuffle off our responsibility upon the shoulders of God or nature. We must shoulder it ourselves. It is our responsibility' FREEDOM OF RELIGION
'Be a good human being, a warm hearted, affectionate person. Having a sense of caring and compassion will bring happiness and peace of mind to oneself, thus creating a positive atmosphere' FREEDOM OF SPEECH
'People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought which they avoid'
Freedom is the condition of being free of restraints Free of Chains Nat Turner In our world today there are some people who are less fortunate in having as many rights as others. Nevertheless, in James 1:9-10 it says that 'Believers who are poor and have no freedom have something to boast about, for God has honored them; and those who are rich and have freedom should boast that God has humbled them.' Jesus said that anyone who chooses a life of sin is trapped in a dead-end life and is in fact a slave. However, a slave is temporary who can't come and go at will. The Son though, has an established position; the run of the house.
