Reply To: In your opinion, why is it important for Christians to stand up for religious freedom for people of all faiths, and not just our own?

Madeline,

I appreciate your emphasize on love. “God calls us to love our neighbor and dishonoring their freedom to choose what they want to believe is inconsistent with love.” It is very interesting throughout the Scriptures the Israelites were always living in close proximity to other nations. These nations did not worship the God of Israel and yet God commanded the Israelites to love their neighbors. Therefore, a prime example of love back then was allowing those neighbors to worship the God of their choice.
