Here’s the breaking story on Hobby Lobby from TIME.COM.
Whenever Christians are in the news fighting for religious freedom I always try to ask two questions:
Question #1 – What did we gain?
Question #2 – What did we lose?
I’m afraid that more often than not what we lose is far greater than what we gain in our public bickering.
In this case (the Hobby Lobby one), I’m personally quite happy with the ruling of the Supreme Court. Freedom is compelling thing, religiously or in how we run our businesses.
Freedom is what makes America unique.
That’s what we celebrate this time of year, isn’t it?
July 4th celebrates our declaration of independence and freedom from political tyranny.
The Gospel is all about declaring independence and freedom from sin.
Freedom is powerful thing. It’s worth fighting for. It’s worth celebrating.
