Liberty From Our Sins And Corruptions

Jens Juel - A Running Boy. Marcus Holst von Schmidten - Google Art ProjectHugh Binning, Works, p. 142:

Some promise to us liberty, but they themselves are the servants of corruption; it is no liberty to be above all law and rule. It was innocent Adam’s liberty to be conformed to a holy and just command; nay, this was his beauty. This Spirit indeed gives liberty where he is, but this liberty is from our sins and corruptions, not to them. It looses the chains of a man’s own corrupt lusts off him, to walk at freedom in the way of his commandments. The Spirit enlargeth the prisoner’s heart, and then he runs, but not at random, but the way of his commands, Ps. 119:32.
