July 3: The Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz reminds us that: "While the resurrection freedom of Good Friday and Easter Sunday is the only enduring, eternal freedom in the world, it is a precious thing to have the temporal freedoms of America as well." Happy Independence Day from the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty!
July 10: LCMS President Matthew C. Harrison explains that, when it comes to re-opening churches during a pandemic, "We are now seeing a different phase in government, and that is resulting in a different response from the church."
July 17: Deaconess Rosie Adle notes that, "God did not create us for independence or autonomy. He created us to be His people, and this defines us. The freedom He grants is not the same as the world’s 'freedom.'”
July 24: Focus on the Family's Tim Goeglein reminds us that, "We cannot let a short-term public health crisis become a long-term health crisis for the human soul."
July 31: Dr. Gene Edward Veith explains what makes religions decline and what makes them come back.
