Dozens of religious freedom scholars, advocates, and supporters met on June 1 at the Washington D.C. Religious Freedom Center to commemorate and discuss the implications of the Protestant Reformation for religious liberty and freedom of conscience. The one-day event, themed “Commemoration of the 500-year Anniversary of the 16th Century Protestant Reformation: Conversations on the Reformation, Christian Identities, and Freedom of Conscience,” sought to delve into the multiple connections between the watershed 16th-century event and our ongoing contemporary quest for freedom of conscience and worship. source

    Ted N.C. Wilson, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church commented at the meeting. “Believing that we are created in the image of God is the basis of human dignity....All human beings are endowed with dignity and infinite worth, and human conscience is an essential part of it....Seventh-day Adventist pioneers believed that acting according to one’s conscience is an inalienable right....Followers of Jesus do not force others. Freedom of conscience is a universal right—it is for all.”
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.
