freedom and me

I have been thinking a lot about the idea of freedom. It is a difficult topic within our current religious context. But I wonder if people are not free where is responsibility for their actions?

Anyway, I read this today:

So freedom for the Christian is to choose Jesus Christ and to follow His ways. That is what freedom is. It is freedom for, it is not freedom from. It is freedom for God, freedom for good, freedom for choosing the right. And yes, we as Christians are free; we are free to choose the way of God.

I find the “for vs from” distinction helpful.
