President Franklin D. Roosevelt made an important speech before Congress on January 6, 1941. After the war was over, he shared his vision of all people enjoying four basic freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. Warren Wiersbe, conference speaker, author and pastor, adds a fifth freedom that he is convinced the world needs: freedom from self. We need to be free from our sinful nature and the tyranny of evil.
