Religious Freedom in 2015

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Much is said these days about religious freedom. Vocal and impassioned advocates from both ends of the spectrum wail quite a lot about freedom of religion or freedom from religion. Freedom in religion seems a better term. Freedom in Christ is the best term. Christ Himself spoke about it.

In the midst of a heated argument with the unbelieving Jewish leaders, Christ turned to the believing
