Taking Another Look at Gospel Freedom, by Andrew Strickland, on Higher Things

Andrew Strickland has written a wonderful article that is published at Higher Things, titled “Taking Another Look at Gospel Freedom.”

Here are a few excepts to whet your appetite to read the entire article:

Trying to achieve theosis while working in a warehouse and going to college was a really bad idea. Theosis is the belief in Eastern Orthodoxy that one can have real union with God, and participate in the divine nature. To say I was struggling would be an understatement.

I dug through my books and dusted off Luther’s Small Catechism. I was rediscovering it with a new sense of freedom. That freedom was found in the Gospel.
