Faux Freedom

He lived among the tombs and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain, for he had often been bound with shackles and chains, but he wrenched the chains apart and he broke the shackles in pieces. No one had the strength to subdue him.

Now this sounds like freedom. "No one had the strength to subdue him." Nobody could tell this guy what to do. Imagine that, he would be completely free...

Except he was possessed by demons and used this "freedom" to hang out in graveyards, cry out in pain and repeatedly cut himself with stones. How different is he from so many on us. Free on the outside, completely bound on the inside.
