On Monday, January 24, 2022, a Finnish Christian MP and former Minister of the Interior pleaded not guilty to three charges. Paivi Rasanen appeared in court in Helsinki to face criminal charges for allegedly quoting from the Bible. She was only pointing out what the Bible says about homosexuality, prompting Finland’s Prosecutor General to seek criminal charges against her under the sections of “war crimes” and “crimes against humanity.”
The goal of the radical LGBT+ militants was never about achieving equality. They want to put anyone who quotes or preaches from the Bible in prison. Their plan is to silence Christians and close down their churches. You could go to jail if you use certain Bible verses on social media. This is coming from a historically Protestant county where 67.8% of the population belongs to the Lutheran Church. Why is it that the majority of people in a “Protestant” nation are so hostile to the Bible and to Christian worldviews?
This is an important criminal case that is now being tried in Finland, and the verdict will have global ramifications. Please remember Paivi Rasanen in your prayers. We need more courageous Christians like Paivi Rasanen. We need Christians who will refuse to bend to a culture that has turned against those who speak the complete truth of God’s Word, which includes both the law and the gospel. The more we remain silent on these difficult and contentious issues, the more our freedom of speech and religious liberty will be eroded. #sda #adventist #adventista
