Circle drawers

You might be able to use children’s responses to the question: “What does freedom mean to you?” to introduce some levity into your lesson, “Claim Your Freedom”. You might simple ask your class the question, “What does “freedom in Christ” mean to you?” List a summary of their answers on a marker board as they call them out.

The commentary by Dr. Sam Tullock describes the Judiazers as what he calls “circle drawers”—Bible preachers or teachers who build their identity or following by claiming to be guardians of some great truth, or rediscovered truth (I have in mind the Emergent church movement). In what ways do today's followers of such “circle drawers” give up their true freedom in Christ?
