Stand Firm & See - 2015 Religious Liberty Campaign

Whether we realize it or not, all of us have been blessed by the values of religious liberty. Our church’s Liberty magazine has been a beacon of those values, sent to many government officials, judges, attorneys and civic leaders. Religious liberty is a tenuous gift—dependent on our country’s Constitution and those who interpret it. This Sabbath we have an opportunity to continue to support lifting up this important principle and practice to our regional and national leaders. As you contribute to the mission of our church this Sabbath, add a generous offering for Liberty magazine.

A Matter Of Conscience

The year was 1914 and war was on the horizon in Britain. Of the roughly 2,500 Adventist members in the United Kingdom, 130 were conscripted to serve in World War I (WWI). While these men were loyal subjects of the British crown, they were more devoted Christians and felt it was against their conscience to serve as soldiers. Not only would they be forced to carry a weapon, but also forced to serve on Sabbath.
