As believers, we have Christ and do not ever have to be afraid, but that doesn't mean that we are immune to the effects of evil. Christ has conquered sin and death, but in his infinite wisdom—for reasons that are often difficult for us to understand—evil is still permitt... Read More
In Truly Free best-selling author Robert Morris invites us into a glorious truth—that the promise of being set free from the slavery of sin is a promise to be set free completely. Although evil is real and Christians can be oppressed by it, we have the promise that the one who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4). Jesus saves us, trains us to resist the power of evil, and delivers us from anything that holds us back. With Jesus, we can be truly free forever.

- Not So Helpful? by Beth on 11/10/2015
I hate to admit it but the best part of this book, in my honest opinion, was the appendix that listed other resources and readings to maintain victory from sin that entangles us so easily. I do appreciate that Morris took the time to split the book up into sections of specific areas of bondage which makes it easier to simply turn to different sections of the book rather than having to read the whole thing again. It was also nice to have to prayer for freedom printed in the book. The one thing that I think was missing was a true encouragement of finding accountability and understanding that at times the sin stems from other areas. I think, in today’s society, people often overlook familial systems and true chemical issues (depression, etc.) that people struggle with. While this isn’t critical and important for all, I think it’s super important that it is at least addressed when looking at the issue of sin.
- Faulty Premises Doom This Book by Angela on 5/16/2015
I wanted to like this book but I bought it and read it. I can save you the trouble. The whole book can be boiled down to: 1)You are demon possessed. 2) If Robert prays over you, THEN you'll be permanently free from demons.
The reality is that both premises are false, and Morris admits it within the book.
Can modern Christians really be demon possessed? No. On page 13-14 Morris' 'logic' is the faulty assumption: since Jesus purchased our freedom 2000 years ago, 'then its logical to assume we can also go the other way and experience a lifestyle of oppression and even bondage.' No scientific basis. No biblical basis. Just a faulty assumption.
The idea that recurring sin can be 'cured' by a Robert Morris prayer is also faulty. He himself has been under bondage to lust and adultery for decades. He admits this in the book. He cheated on his new wife in the early 80's, then 'got free' via a deliverance prayer by Milton Green in 1983. Then he cheated on his wife again throughout the 80's, and had to get another deliverance in the 1980's from another pastor. Yet in 2014 he admits again that he is still under bondage to lust and adultery. So none of the prayers ever worked in Morris' own life. Why would you believe that his printed prayers in a book will be effective or long lasting in your life?
Apparently even familychristian stores are so skeptical of this book that they purchased ZERO books in their stores, even in Robert's own backyard of DFW, TX.
- A great resource in learning why we need freedom and how to receive freedom in our lives. by Rick on 3/28/2015
In Robert Morris’s new book he writes about freedom from sin, freedom from our past that caused hurts in our lives that affect us later on. This is a book touches on a subject that aren’t many resources on anything of freedom ministries. I touch on what’s in the book because I would love for people help get freedom in their lives through Christ from a great book like this. This great and wonderful book is written for people to break strongholds and bondages that are caused by issues like pride, greed, lust, and bitterness. Just even freedom the toxic thoughts of our minds is vital for everyone not just believers of Christ. Jesus has given us the freedom to live from things of the enemy tries to put in our lives. Morris includes not just things that we need or can receive freedom from in our lives but a how to receive freedom in prayer from the different things that hold us down even with personal stories of his life. As he has a gift from God in being able to use his personal testimony to illustrate God’s truth and principals like in his first book The Blessed Life. The book comes with an appendix with a few tools to help put things into application in your spiritual walk Truly Free, was a great book for me personally in this season of getting ready to graduate from Bible college in how God is working in my life.
