Helps to protect our religious freedom.
In the United States, we are favored with many freedoms that are not found in other countries. Seventh-day Adventists hold these freedoms dear. Because of this, it is important to let our elected officials know how we feel about the issues that face our country at this time.
As a people, Adventists believe in the separation of church and state and we must strive to protect it. We do this by studying any of the more than 5,000 bills introduced each session in the Southwest, that are pertinent to us. While some bills on the surface may look good for society, we need to consider the end result. Until the Lord returns, we need to continue to work toward protecting our religious freedoms.
