"Workers of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your chains!"
This Marxist phrase changed history as Communists overthrew oppressive monarchies and set up their godless governments.
In truth, they simply exchanged one set of chains for another.
"Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, 'Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles'” Psalm 2:1-3
Ever since the Fall of man, there has been a struggle between the True and Living God and man-made philosophies and religions. We see this in human history and in current events. But on a smaller scale it happens in our own hearts whenever we ignore God's Biblical truths.
We cannot abandon God's laws without also abandoning His goodness.
Blessed are those who recognize true "chains." (Psalm 2).
