Please explain Galatians 5:1 (NASB), “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.”

Galatians 4:3-5, 7, 9 (CSB), “…we also,…were in slavery under the elements of the world. When the time came to completion, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons….So you are no longer a slave but a [...]

Why do people continue to decorate trees on the date of Tammuz's birthdate on December 25, when Jeremiah 10:4 clearly mentions its pagan roots?

“This is what the LORD says: "Do not learn the ways of the nations…for the practices of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not [...]

In the Bible, what are some themes about liberation? I am in that process.

Who gave the Wisdom to Stephen Hawkings / Einstein / Edison and other famous scientists to find something about this Universe? Did GOD use them to reveal knowledge to the world or because they seemed earnest?

What was the importance of the fat of the animals in all the various offerings? Why was it burnt and not eaten? What is the importance of the kidneys and the lobe of the liver in the offerings?

In the book of Hebrews, the Apostle Paul interpreted the sacrifices of Leviticus. Hebrews 10:1(NASB), “For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very form of things, can never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, make perfect those who draw [...]

Why could God not forgive Adam and Eve after He chased them from the Garden of Eden?
