What does the religious freedom mean for Christians’ lives in Australia?

For this week’s special summer collection of Voice for Values we hear from Martyn Iles speaking at EMBOLDEN 2017, ACL’s national conference.

Martyn Iles, the new Managing Director of the Australian Christian Lobby, was  the former director of the Human Rights Law Alliance. In this episode, he discusses the emerging issue of religious freedom and what it means for the lives of ordinary Christians in Australia. You will be shocked and enlightened by the stories of persecution against Christians in our nation simply for living out their faith.

Be inspired by the stories of our successes  in standing up for those courageous believers and encouraged by God’s words.
