Evangelizing to make free

True evangelization makes humans free. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” says St. Paul (2 Cor 3:17). He added: “You, my brothers and sisters, it is to freedom that you were called” (Gal 5:13).

This force makes us free because it pushes us from within to do well, makes us act out of love, and therefore guarantees our freedom. This force is the Holy Spirit.

To evangelize is not to put people under the rule of a law imposed from the outside. Quite the contrary, it is the communication of the Holy Spirit, which make us free in respect to all who dress slavery under the false guise of a certain freedom. Christianity is not a law, even if it offers laws. It is not a moral, even if it contains morality. By the Spirit of Jesus, Christianity is rather the gift and wonderful that God made us with his presence. This gift allows us to act freely.

The person who listens to the message does not become the slave of a strange commandment, that holds him with cold fingers. Quite the contrary: Evangelizing is giving the Holy Spirit to people, thus freeing them from what appeared to be freedom. Christianity is not a law, even though it contains law. It is not a morality although it embraces morality. Christianity is – through the gift of the Spirit of Christ – are a great wealth of grace that leads us to act freely as he has shown us.
