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?


I wholeheartedly agree with your perspective on the foundational importance of the Christian commitment to freedom of religion. This principle, deeply rooted in the teachings of Jesus, not only sets a moral standard but also reflects the essence of genuine Christian love and the recognition of God’s ultimate sovereignty.

By adhering to this principle, Christians not only follow Christ’s example but also demonstrate that love and kindness are not tools for conversion but manifestations of Christ’s transformative love within us. It reflects the understanding that the pursuit of truth and faith is a deeply personal journey that cannot be coerced.

In a world where religious intolerance and persecution still exist, upholding religious freedom is a beacon of hope and a testament to the core values of Christianity. It highlights the belief that the God of the Cosmos, in His infinite wisdom, doesn’t rely on forceful methods to draw people to Him. Instead, He invites all to come freely, guided by the gentle conviction of their hearts.
