Interesting application in Snowden's case, very interesting!
I love Snowden, I must admit. What courage! He has the courage of any of the greatest men I've ever read about in history.
He's willing to sacrifice his own life, about which Jesus said, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
Snowden also is willing to sacrifice ever going back home, because of the evil tyranny that would swallow him up if he returned. He's sacrificed all that is dear to him, or I should say, he has prioritized things in this order:
1) Doing what's right...or I call that serving God.
2) Standing up for Liberty, even at the cost of captivity.
3) Preserving his own life.
4) Holding on to friends and family.
5) Holding on to wealth and the comforts of life.
Most people would hold on to their money, their comforts, their friends, and certainly shrink from losing their own life, all in favor of doing something to expose tyranny and enlarge freedom, all in favor of doing what God would have him do.
We should have a monument in Washington DC and in front of every gov't re-education camp (public schools) honoring this great patriot.
May God bless him and give him strength, and constant protection from harm.
Jesus also said, "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it."
"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford
