  1. Freedom and liberty are not founded on human dignity but are based on the divine law handed down from Jesus. Freedom is defined as the power to do what one ought to do. Freedom depends upon truth. Those who are most free are those who know the truth and who do the truth. Obedience to the truth is the test of freedom. Obedience is the acceptance of God’s divine plan for order in the world. Truth is not a something, it is a somebody–Jesus Christ–who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no-one comes to the Father except through me.” Bishop Fulton Sheen teaches us that, Without the way there is no going; without the truth there is no knowing; and without the life there is no living. Freedom means being alive in Christ, following Christ’s true commands. Truth is a matter of life and death. There is no freedom in false religions. Liberty is not founded on human dignity, but on the truth of Jesus Christ.
