Many of us have had sins in our lives that once raised havoc with us. We were or still are bound to a vice of sin that has taken away our youth and then some.
Once we become Christians God expects us to work on overcoming our sins.
It is a process known as sanctification. That’s where the true freedom lies. Jesus said, "So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed” John 8:36 (NASU).
Jesus really did come to set us free.
