Bible Study Outlines

Volume 2, Lesson 7
by C.I. Scofield


The unbeliever is in a two-fold error. He thinks that Christians are in bondage and that he is free. In fact, this situation is exactly reversed.

  1. The unbeliever is not free
    1. The unbeliever is in bondage to sin
    2. The unbeliever is in bondage to self
    3. The unbeliever is in bondage to Satan
      • 2Timothy 2:26 - "Taken captive by him at his will"
      • John 8:44 - "Your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do"
  2. The believer is free
    1. Free through Christ
    2. Free from present condemnation
      • Romans 8:1 - "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ"
      • John 3:18 - "He that believeth on Him is not condemned"
    3. Free from future judgement
    4. Free from bondage to sin
    5. Free from the law
    6. Free from fear
      • Hebrews 2:14,15 - "Deliver them who through fear of death were... subject to bondage"
      • Psalm 23:4 - "I will fear no evil"
      • Romans 8:15 - "Ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear"
      • 1John 4:18 - "There is no fear in love." The "perfect love" is God's.
    7. Free from care
