True freedom can only come from one place, as much as we delude ourselves, even subconsciously, into believing otherwise. I'm not saying that Christianity is all happiness and rainbows. What is an adventure without struggle? If you dream of something that you think will make you happy, don't you think that the creator of the world, the universe, can do better? Just as you would have to endure an 11 hour car ride to get somewhere different and exciting, we have to get through discomfort and changing surroundings to get to something new and better.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (NIV)
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. (NIV)
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (NIV)
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (NIV)
