Freedom found from state despotism

From the August 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Originally written in German, this testimony first appeared in the April 2014 German, French, Portuguese, and Spanish editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

In the Bible we read: “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (II Corinthians 3:17, New Revised Standard Version).
