The responsibility of the Religious Liberty Department is to defend religious freedom. This entails being informed so that you can keep your church and community informed of issues, laws and trends that threaten religious freedom.
According to Ellen G. White, “Let none sit in calm expectation of the evil, comforting themselves with the belief that this work must go on because prophecy has foretold it, and that the Lord will shelter His people. We are not doing the will of God if we sit in quietude, doing nothing to preserve liberty of conscience.” Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 713, 714
“The responsibility for this great gift [banner of truth and religious liberty] rests with those whom God has blessed with a knowledge of His word.” Acts of the Apostles, p. 69
