One should free oneself of faults, bad habits and bad feelings of the heart, and free one's mind of deviating thoughts. One should turn away from being subject to the devil and his supporters, from the influence of bad company and corrupt association and from every control over one's will intended to lead one astray.
Such is the freedom meant by the Holy Bible, "If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed" (John 8:36).
