Religious Freedom. Part-One.

Christianity and Other?

There is a world history of Christianity clashing with other religions, because of our freedoms and their enforced legalism and idolatry? Many lands in Africa clash with Islam, but also with the many primitive religions and beliefs too some of which are nothing more than folklore?

Believers can get killed for their faith, for their failure to respect a certain prophet or a certain custom! Others do not like to see freedom from ritualism, from personality worship and from community control?

Terrorism. Part-Two.

‘Dark Forces.

People who are angry and not heard as we saw recently in Norway are right across Europe and the world. As Christians in politics we do so need to encourage everyone with their grievences to be heard and not ignored.

Sometimes what we will hear we disgust us, but hear it will help to heal any wounds that left festering as we should know will lead to a conflict. Jesus was not political, but when shown a coin, said ‘Give to Ceaser what is his and then give to God.

We need to learn to respect those in authority both in the government and in the ekklesia.
