One of my favorite movies is Braveheart. At the end of the movie, William Wallace (played by Mel Gibson) is being tortured to death. Instead of giving in and bowing down to the king and receiving an instant death, he cries out, "freedom!!!!!!"
We are all in a continual quest for freedom.
What is true freedom?
I would suggest that true freedom is the realization that as Christians we belong not to the world that we live in, but to God, whose children we are. As a Christian, I am a son of God. A child of His. As I live my life in word and works according to His Word (the Bible) than I gradually grow into my true freedom - which consist of not having to be bound to the thoughts, ideals and patterns of the culture we live in.
This requires a lifelong discipline as the culture that we live in (the political, economic, social and religious powers around us) desires to keep us in bondage so that we will only obey their will, their thoughts, their commands and be dependent upon them.
I am first of all a Christian. My allegiance is first of all to Christ.
And in Christ is true freedom.
