Did you write the book of love?
And do you have faith in God above, if the Bible tells you so?
Now do you believe in rock & roll?
Can music save your mortal soul?
And, can you teach me how to dance real slow?
Now I know that you’re in love with him, ’cause I saw you dancing in the gym.
You both kicked off your shoes

Don McLean wrote this song in 1971, American Pie it was a tribute to the great rock and roll legends that died in plane crash on Feb. 3, 1959.  The likes of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.  This is the second verse of the song it is great to listen to.  Mr. Mclean was also referring to the great turmoil of the 60’s the Vietnam war was in full gear and the children were running lose in the streets dancing to the music of Haight Asbury, sex ,drugs and rock and roll.

It was during the 60’s that prayer to God was taken out of schools and the concept of the nuclear family quit being taught in American high schools.  They started teaching the children communism.  That was a micro look at my world.

This was Freedom to me the sights and sounds of the music coming out of San Francisco.  I was sheltered from the harshness of life so my eyes were blinded to the different shades of Freedom and I was very idealistic and naive.  Viewpoint change however when I went down in a Helo during a combat mission in the 70’s.

I now sit on the  council of Elders, 40yrs later, in the congregation of the Lord and incidentally this song is in the hymn book.  What is Freedom to You? This is a good question?

Freedom has three components to it this resides in the physical realm that you live in anywhere in the World.

  1. Government Structure = Slavery
  2. Economics = Slavery
  3. Religion = Slavery

Governments around the world are governed by the dictates of the person in power. They make the Laws that govern society to keep everyone in line. Most governments are dictatorial and the laws appear from what man has created previously they just add to it.

You are in bondage.

Economics is also governed by modals economic created by man.  The most current model for most of the world is based on Lenin the great Russian Czar. This is how to tax the people and transfer the wealth into the coffers of the government.

You are in bondage.

Religion is definitely man made from the times of the ancients in Mesopotamia.  They to devised ways to gain your wealth and also rule your life.  In the days of old the kings used religion to gain more wealth and to keep the people in line.  Today man’s religion still devises ways to take your wealth.

You are in bondage.

Does not matter where you are at in the world, America, Africa, Ukraine, India, and I will through in Hong Kong. You were born in slavery and your perceptions of Freedom become entwined with those three physical realities.

All three are rooted in ideologies of man created by man.  The Roman Empire, Christianity, Muslim, Buddha, Hindu and the Orthodox Churches of the world all created by man.

Can Freedom exist in the confines of bondage while you are in this world? Yes!

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Were not made of things which do appear.  This is a reference to what man creates as outlined above 1,2,3.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen

World is a hypallage statement. That is referring to your body and everything outside and inside.  Faith created worlds that is you in the seven days of creation.  From birth in the womb to when you were playing in the yard as a child.  That was your Paradise till the men in the chariots destroyed your Paradise.

Remember Christ told the thief that believed this day you will be in Paradise?  Faith creates Freedom from the bondage of man made structures and releases you back to the garden of Eden, Paradise, come to me as little children, remember.

Grab my hand and walk with me and sit with in the congregation of the Lord. Lets see what He has to say today.

Do you Love me

Yes

Do you Love me

Yes

Do you Love me

Yes

Now you can ask your Father questions no need to raise your hand He see;s you

Did you write the book of love?

Yes
And do you have faith in God above, if the Bible tells you so?

Yes
Now do you believe in rock & roll?

Yes I like children to laugh and play in my courtyard.  The sound of children always makes me smile.
Can music save your mortal soul?

Yes it is sweet perfume that brings you back to your Paradise

And, can you teach me how to dance real slow?

You are the bride of the Lamb

The rest is history you are dancing unto the marriage festival of the bride to the Lamb.

Now I know that you’re in love with him, ’cause I saw you dancing in the gym.
You both kicked off your shoes

And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died
And they were singing

The day that the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost started leaving America.

I think the questions were answered.  Freedom from bondage exists in Faith to create your world from the words that you hear.  The by product of Faith is Paradise.  That will stay with you for eternity.
