In the world right now, Christians are more persecuted than anyone else. Now America’s current administration is working to advance religious freedom.
Under the direction of President Donald Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has spearheaded the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom initiative. Vice President Mike Pence shares the facts about how religious freedom is threatened or banned in other nations to help us understand why America is helping to bring religious freedom to all nations.
“It is my great honor to address this first ever and first annual Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom…President Trump has said on many occasions; the United States of America is a nation of faith and religious freedom it’s a top priority of this administration. Since the earliest days of our nation, America has stood for religious freedom…the American founders enshrined religious freedom as the first freedom in the Constitution of the United States, and America has always and will always lead the world by our example.” Vice President Pence continues, “In the long history of this nation religious freedom has been our first freedom. As our founders knew this precious liberty is endowed not by government but by our Creator and we believe that it belongs not just to the American people but to all people so endowed. The right to believe or not to believe is the most fundamental of freedoms. When religious liberty is denied or destroyed we know that other freedoms…are imperiled. That’s why the United States stands for religious freedom, yesterday, today, and always.”
Vice President Pence remarks how Secretary of State Pompeo has brought to pass what President Trump wanted, to bring together 80 nations, and to make religious liberty a priority for the world. “For today tragically a stunning 83% of the worlds populations live where religious freedom is either threatened or even banned.” He shares how those persecuted face imprisonment, persecution, and even death.
The changes that have taken place in American government are so positive. America does not want religious persecution in the world and is taking action to make sure the persecution ends. We have prayed for this persecution to end as have many others and now our prayers are being answered. Our God is powerful, loving and kind and He wants this persecution to end. Now President Trump and his administration are protecting our rights in America and helping the world too. As the first amendment reads in the U.S. Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Our religious rights are addressed in the very first amendment, and America is coming back to its original intent! We want to hear what you think about these great changes. You can write to us at [email protected]. Greg and John shared in this segment.
