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?


The Bible says, “Pray for those that persecute you.” This should be a strong driving force for all Christians to accept religious tolerance to the highest core. What I’ve come to realize about God is that he saves, blesses, gives us all we need when we ask; but when it comes to making decisions, he’s given us His Free Will to either choose him or reject him.
So I think Christianity should not be imposing but people should willingly decide to accept Jesus upon hearing the Good News.
One of the fruits of the Holy Spirit mentioned in Galatians is love: and love brings about peace and reconciliation. Once everyone feels included and is given equal rights to practice their faith void of discrimination, peace will always reign.
I am glad that my country, Liberia, is a safe place for religious tolerance.
