Dr. Richard Land was the guest speaker at chapel. He spoke on the topic of religious liberty. He gave a historical review of what it means to have our religious freedom as Christians. He defined religious liberty as “the freedom to worship as you please according to the dictates of your own conscience, working out your own relationship with God, without any cohesive interference from the state, and no civil penalties for religious infractions. He stated that the Baptist way of religious liberty, gradually triumphed in the Constitution of the United States. He charged Christians with the thought that we must be salt and light on this earth and that since we have the freedom to do so, we are held accountable when we don’t.
