Every falsity is from evil, 8311:2.
Those who are in evils cannot do otherwise than think falsities: illustrated 7437:2.
Evil of life has falsity in itself, which falsity manifests itself when truths and salvation are thought about; then truth itself is falsified, 8094.

Falsities with those who are in good do not conjoin, but apply, and afterwards are separated, 2863.
Falsities and truths cannot apply and conjoin themselves, except by means of intermediates, which are fallacies and appearances such as are in the sense of the letter of the Word, 7344.

Evils and falsities remain with man, although he be regenerated, 865:2, 868, 887, 894.
Man when he is regenerated has many falsities mixed with truths, which are arranged in order when he has been regenerated and acts from good, so that then truths are in the midst, and falsities are rejected to the lowest circumferences; conversely with the evil, 4551, 4552:2.
The falsities with those who are of the Church are more grievous than with others, 7688.

The Doctrine of Freedom in its Series
Concerning man's freedom, 2870-2893, 9585-9591.
All freedom pertains to some love or affection, 2870.
Infernal freedom pertains to the love of self and the world, heavenly freedom to the love of the Lord and love towards the neighbour: thus the love of good and truth, 2870.
The infernals do not know any other freedom than that which belongs to the love of self and the world; if they lose that they have no more life than a recently born infant; an experience, 2871.
They who enjoy heavenly freedom, or freedom from the Lord, wish to communicate their bliss and happiness; concerning communication, 2872.
Infernal freedom is as distinct from heavenly as hell is from heaven, 2873;
and freedom is the life of everyone, 2873.
The quality and difference of freedoms; further, the distinction, 2874.
Man is introduced into heavenly freedom by means of the good of life, in which is implanted the truth of doctrine, 2874, 2875.
What is done in freedom is conjoined; what is done in compulsion is not conjoined, 2875.
Because no one can be reformed, except by means of freedom, therefore freedom, so far as appears, is never taken away from anyone, 2876, 2881.
Unless a man has freedom the affection of good and truth cannot be insinuated into him by the Lord, 2877, 2878;
thus no regeneration could be effected, 2877, 2878;
and because the root of good and truth is in the inmost of man, 2879.
Nothing appears as man's own but what is from freedom, therefore that man may receive a proprium he is introduced by means of freedom, 2880.
All worship is from freedom, none from compulsion, 2880.
If men could be saved by compulsion, all would be saved, 2881.
A man has stronger freedom in the combats of temptations, than outside them, 2881.
No one has, or had, heavenly freedom from himself, but from the Lord, not even a man when in integrity, 2882;
that a man may have heavenly freedom he ought to think truth from himself, and to do good from himself; but still he ought to know and acknowledge that they are from the Lord; the angels are in such acknowledgment and perception, 2883, 2891.
The freedom pertaining to the love of self and the world is altogether slavery, and yet it is called freedom, 2884.
All think and will from others, thus successively, so each and everyone from the First of life, who is the Lord, 2886.
Evils and falsities have connection with the hells, truths and goods with the heavens, 2886.
Man would have nothing of life if spirits and angels were not with him, 2887.

Evil spirits consider man as a vile slave; angels, as a brother, and keep him in freedom, 2890.
He who lives in good, and believes that truth, good, and life are from the Lord, can be gifted with heavenly freedom and peace; but he who does not so believe is carried into lusts and anxieties, 2892.
All evils and falsities are from hell, and goods and truths from the Lord; and this may be known and is known to everyone, but still they do not believe it, 2893.

Servitude consists in being led by hell, and freedom in being led by the Lord, 9586, 9589-9591.
