Welcome to the Religious Liberty Department

The Religious Liberty Department exist to promote Liberty of Conscience, freedom of religion and to combat religious intolerance at the local, state and national levels.

Freedom rings through the bible both in the old and the New Testament.

Ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout [all] the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family Lev 25:10

The spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound Isa 61:1

The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised Luke 4:18

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] liberty. 2Cor 3:17

While the plan of redemption seeks to restore freedom of the body, mind and soul, the adversary has been actively engaged is seeking to destroy and to deny men and women this freedom.

There has been a long and arduous journey in restoring these freedoms that are in danger of being threatened once again.

History informs us that the 33- year reformer Martin Luther nailed his 95 thesis on the church in Wittenberg in the year 1517, this significant move became to the religious world the Magna Carta of the religious freedom that we hold so dear today.

This was then followed by the Protest of the Princess 1n 1529 which resulted in the movement that is known in history as the Protestant Reformation.

Later this was to be followed by the Puritans leaving the countries of their birth sailing across the dangerous oceans to seek a country without a king and a church without a Pope: in short they were seeking for religious as well as civil freedoms.

How welcoming must have these the sentiments expressed on the statue of liberty for those who were seeking to escape the atrocities of the old world.

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

This great nation of ours today, The United States of America, stands as a bastion of freedom. The founding fathers struggled and prayed long and hard to frame a document that will guarantee these freedoms that they believed was due to every human being. Listen how they echo these thoughts:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain
unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Someone have insightfully said that freedom is not free. Indeed, tremendous sacrifices has been made over the centuries as the price for these freedom that we have today.

It cost the sacrifice of the dearest son of God and millions of martyrs’ shed blood to obtain this freedom.

We at Light Bearers Mission [LBM] wants to keep the flames of freedom burning brightly until our blessed Lord returns and all God children are free in mind, free in body and free in their souls.
