During the election season I addressed the issue of religious liberties and the implications the reelection of our President would have. I so much wish I was wrong about this. Here is a Christian businessman who owns Hobby Lobby and Mardel Christian bookstores, and employs thousands of staff. He is being ordered by the administration, and this has been upheld by a district judge, to violate his conscience by paying, via insurance, for his employees’ abortion-causing chemicals and procedures. Please pray for David Green, his company and their employees. And for the far-reaching implications of civil rights and religious liberties.Read the rest.
There is a tension here.
Real suffering through abortion is something that Christians should care deeply about and should reject being forced to pay for. Yet, for centuries, Christianity has thrived under governments who provided zero religious liberty.
We grieve and grieve with real tears. We fight, and should fight as long as we have the right. Yet we rejoice in confidence that the Kingdom of God will not fail. Ever.
