This Week's Offertory Reading
Religious Liberty - January 25, 2020
Thus saith the Lord! In Testimonies to The Church Volume 9, Ellen G. White states: "Men will exalt and rigidly enforce laws that are in direct opposition to the law of God. Though zealous in enforcing their own commandments, they will turn away from a plain 'Thus saith the Lord'" (Testimonies vol. 9, p. 229).
This beautiful quote reminds us that around the world there are people, systems, and powerful decision-making bodies that enforce a view of Christianity that is diametrically opposed to Scriptural truth.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America advocates for religious tolerance and mutual respect toward other religious traditions through its magazine, Liberty, and its efforts in the public sphere. Liberty is sent free of charge to many lawmakers and public figures. Our church likewise advocates and defends the religious rights in employment disputes for our Seventh-day Adventist Church members.
Our generous offering today will provide continued resources to expand this indispensable work in defending religious liberty across the North American Division.
