Religious Liberty and the Current State of Pro-Life Politics in America

Travis Wussow of the ERLC and Herbie discuss religious liberty in America, how Christians can be proactive in engaging public policy, and the current state of pro-life politics in America.

The mission of Lifeline Children’s Services is to equip the Body of Christ to manifest the gospel to vulnerable children. Our vision is for vulnerable children and their communities to be transformed by the gospel and to make disciples. 

Lifeline seeks to come alongside local churches to resource them to proclaim the gospel through caring for vulnerable children. Whether it be through adoption, foster care, orphan care, or education and counseling, our mission is accomplished when we help churches to live out James 1:27 in their communities and to the ends of the earth. 

Lifeline assists families with international adoption in all 50 states, each of the U.S. territories and with U.S. citizens living abroad. Lifeline also assists families who already have a primary provider, are living in one of our licensed states and are interested in contract home study services. Additionally, Lifeline serves women in unexpected pregnancies and families through domestic adoption.

The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission is an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention. The ERLC is dedicated to engaging the culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ and speaking to issues in the public square for the protection of religious liberty and human flourishing. Our vision can be summed up in three words: kingdom, culture and mission. Since its inception, the ERLC has been defined around a holistic vision of the kingdom of God, leading the culture to change within the church itself and then as the church addresses the world.
