Freedom


From Brussels Journal:


Freedom works. Freedom is a gift from God Almighty, and we have a responsibility to protect it.

Christians face a temptation to power when we are fortunate enough to have a majority of support in Congress. But government can never advance a faith that is freely given, and it is corrosive to even try. Just look at Europe, where decades of nanny-state activism – including taxpayer support for churches and for religious political parties – have severely eroded the faith. In America today, too many of our Christian leaders fail to recognize the temptation to power and the danger it holds for our society and our faith.
