God takes sides

God is a God who takes sides. God is God of the oppressed; God enters into their difficult, suffering situations to set things right. God is a God who is concerned to move people from slavery to freedom.

Terence E. Fretheim, Exodus


If someone takes your freedom to choose, you have become a slave of their cultural values.
