Has liberty lost its luster?

As to liberty, the Bible puts a stake in the ground: “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” What is this Spirit of the Lord? Perhaps most evident is that there is no fear there because Love is its essence, and Love and fear do not mix. 

At this time, with state mandates and a growing censorship of free speech, it would appear that the Spirit of the Lord has lost its luster, and so liberty. But the Spirit of the Lord has not lost its luster, not in the least! It is materialism that has led mankind astray, as it always has - materialism that embodies sensuality to hide, for a time, its underlying hopelessness.

The Spirit of the Lord acknowledges one universal God, good as the only law-maker - not that liar which would condemn you for being the descendent of Adam, or the product of amoral evolution! The Spirit of the Lord declares: “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” (Jesus) Well, that’s nice, but show me.

The revelation of Mary Baker Eddy regarding what was behind Jesus’ teaching and example was, in part, a recognition that the material view of the world, that which observes through the material senses, is a mistaken sense because it cannot see the All-presence, God, Love. Spiritual sense is required for this, an enlightened view whereby "it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom," where is liberty. Material sense, on the other hand, is the source of all mental slavery.
