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?

Hi Taylor, I appreciate how your response focuses on the inherent dignity bestowed upon all men through the Imago Dei, and as such, how all people are deserving of rights–among them religious liberty! I couldn’t agree more. I also appreciated how you rightly note that God bestows on man the gift of free will, which allows us to choose the truth or to reject it. If we enjoy free will from God, we cannot then seek to oppress and forcibly convert or suppress others, even if their faith and practice differ from ours.
