Global Evangelical and Muslim Organizations Launch Major Joint Religious Freedom Project
This News Item Shared By PCA Minister and WRF Member, Dr. Thomas Johnson
Leaders from the world’s largest independent Muslim organization and the world’s largest Evangelical Christian organization are beginning a joint effort to respond globally to threats to religious freedom coming from religious extremism and secular extremism. They have appointed top-level theologians, human rights theorists, and religious freedom activists from both religions to a Humanitarian Islam/World Evangelical Alliance joint working group to reshape the global discussions and interactions of religions in academia, public life, education, conflict resolution, and humanitarian needs. For full details of this effort, see the attached document.
This comes in direct response to terrible levels of religious persecution and religiously motivated violence seen in the twenty-first century.
