Freedom's crossroads

A great advocate of human freedoms, I hereby introduce you to Oleg Volk:

Oleg is a professor and photographer, and one of his photos is captioned thusly:

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.

(hattip to Tim @ USCCA, quoted from J.R.R. Tolkien's Two Towers, 2nd book of 3--also the shortest, and the best IMHO--in the Lord of the Rings trilogy)

To dramatize the relationship between physical and religious freedom:

How much have you pondered your physical security?

How does your physical freedom affect your ability to think freely?

Would God be in control of both, given the invitation?
