Chapter 20: Of Christian Liberty and Liberty of Conscience

 

1. The liberty[1] that Christ has purchased for believers under the Gospel consists in their:

·       Freedom from:

o      The guilt of sin

o      The condemning wrath of God

o      The curse of the moral lawa

·       Being delivered from:

o      This present evil world

o      Bondage to Satan

o      The dominion of sinb

o      The evil of afflictions

o      The sting of death

o      The victory of the grave

o      Everlasting damnationc

·       Free access to Godd

·       Yielding obedience to Him, not out of slavish fear, but a childlike love and willing mind.e

All of these were common also to believers under the law.f But under the New Testament, the liberty of Christians is further enlarged, in:

·       Their freedom from the yoke of the ceremonial law to which the Jewish Church was subjectedg

·       Greater boldness of access to the throne of graceh

·       Fuller communications of the free Spirit of God than believers under the law ordinarily partook of.i

2. God alone is Lord of the conscience,[2], a and has left it free from any doctrines and commandments of men that are in any way contrary to His Word. Also, in matters of faith or worship, it is free from any addition to His Word.b Therefore, to believe such doctrines or to obey such commands out of conscience is to betray true liberty of conscience.c Also, to require an implicit faith and an absolute and blind obedience is to destroy both liberty of conscience and reason.d

3. Those who, upon pretense of Christian liberty, practice any sin or cherish any lust, destroy the purpose of Christian liberty by doing so. This purpose is that, being delivered out of the hands of our enemies, we might serve the Lord without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him, all the days of our life.

4. The powers God has ordained, and the liberty Christ has purchased, are not intended by God to destroy one another, but to mutually uphold and preserve one another. For this reason, those who, upon pretense of Christian liberty, oppose[4] any lawful[5] power or the lawful exercise of it, whether civil or ecclesiastical,[6] resist the ordinance of God.a Those who publish opinions or maintain practices that are:

·       contrary to the light of nature;

·       contrary to the known principles of Christianity, whether concerning faith, worship, or manner of living;

·       contrary to the power of godliness;

·       such erroneous opinions or practices, either in their own nature, or in the manner of publishing or maintaining them, that are destructive to the external peace and order that Christ has established in the Church;

may lawfully be called to account, and proceeded against by the censures of the Churchb and by the power of the civil magistrate.[7], [8], c

3 So we also, when we were little children, we were under the elements of the world, being enslaved.

6Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.

1Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. 5Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. 6For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. 7Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. 8Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

4 for it is a servant of God to you for the good. But if you do the bad things, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword in vain; for it is a servant of God, an avenger for wrath to the one practicing bad things.

5 Therefore it is necessary to be subject, not only on account of wrath, but also on account of conscience.

6 For on this account you also pay taxes, for they are ministers of God, attending continually to this very thing.

7¶ Therefore give over to all their dues: to the one due tax, the tax; to the one due tribute, the tribute; to the one due fear, the fear; to the one due honor, the honor.

Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; 4for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil. 5Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’ sake. 6For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. 7Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor. 8Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

[1] liberty: in this context, freedom or release from various forms of bondage. The concept of liberty as license to do as one pleases without restraint is entirely absent from the concept of Christian liberty.

[2] Conscience is that natural human sense of moral right and wrong which is designed by God to produce satisfaction when doing that which is morally right and warning or mental distress on evil-doing. It is necessary to distinguish the operations of the conscience from fear of punishment or expectation of reward, especially from temporal sources. The conscience is naturally corrupt and can give many “bad readings” due to internal sin, inadequate knowledge of God, false teachings, and depraved cultural norms. The conscience can also be desensitized or made non-functional to a significant degree by willful and continual sin. Thus it must be continually calibrated by Scripture and the indwelling Holy Spirit in order for it to more reliably inform us regarding moral decisions and actions. Modern theories that treat a guilty conscience as an aberration or mental health issue are contrary to Scripture since the conscience is given by God to guide us only according to His law and teachings.
