07/23/2023 Last week, we shared with you the first part of a conversation with Päivi Räsänen, a Finnish Member of Parliament who is facing charges for tweeting a Bible verse. Her case has led to a fascinating discussion on the role of religious freedom and free speech in the public square.
If you have been studying the world of religious freedom for a while, you know that the road to persecution tends to follow a common trend. Rather than seeing violence emerge overnight, persecution typically begins more subtly, through the gradual chipping away of religious freedom and free speech.
Please join us in prayer, not only for Päivi Räsänen, but also for the nations around the world that are facing a slow erosion of rights.
