Michael Farris is a constitutional lawyer, as well as founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association and Patrick Henry College. He is the author of 'The History of Religious Liberty: From Tyndale to Madison.'


Michael believes that if we don't fight to preserve liberty, we will lose it and if we don't understand liberty we won't know and recognize the incursions against it nor will we know exactly how to proceed.


Michael also agreed that a proper understanding of Scripture is critical in order to have a proper understanding of religious liberty. He went on to note that the idea that we are the people of repression comes from those who are ignorant of Scripture and the nuances between the various factions of the church that professes to follow Christ. So those who believe that the church institution was the standard of truth and that it could command every person to that standard; that group consistently opposed religious liberty. On the other hand, those who believed that the Word of God was delivered to every person consistently stood for religious liberty.


Here's what you'll learn on this broadcast.

Why did Thomas More oppose him?
--Why was it forbidden for the Bible to be translated into English?
