Christian College Group Before the Supreme Court

Are we going to be forced to allow Atheists to lead Bible studies, or believers in other faiths to join a Christian group for the purpose of undermining it?

In Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, a case currently before the Supreme Court, these kinds of disputes might soon be ruled upon.

What is disturbing about this case is not that people may want to join a Christian group on a basis of curiosity – I believe that we should be open to answering questions and giving welcome to those who don’t believe the same faith as us – but that Christian groups, churches and other faith-based ministries could be cowed into silence. If we have no ability to even state who we are and have freedom to meet together as a faith group, where has the freedom of religion, assembly and speech gone?

This is a fascinating case that all Christians should watch carefully, and pray that God’s wisdom prevails.

    Wow…this is very interesting. I don’t know any group that welcomes people in with the PURPOSE of undermining that group’s purpose or beliefs. It just seems so strange to expect that from Christian groups alone.
