Biblical Foundation

The following passages of Holy Scripture suggest that the purpose of the WEA Religious Liberty Commission has a sound biblical basis.

    2 Timothy 3:12
    ... everyone who wants to live a holy life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted...

    Hebrews 13:3
    Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

    1 Peter 2: 13-17 , especially verse 16
    Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.

    Hebrews 10: 32-39 , especially verse 34
    You sympathized with those in prison, and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.
