Free People Singing Hymns About Slavery!

"Ransom Captive" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward


Here we see some people singing a hymn of deliverance, "Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel!" I've sung thousands of songs about freedom, begging for it, and never realizing that freedom was something I already possessed! My eyes just needed opening to it. This present reality. Free indeed! To be honest, I think a lot of religion and its words are created and constructed to keep us in bondage and to keep us enslaved to its systems. Religion needs subjects in order to survive.
