Teleios found that countries that are most free not only demonstrate better average wellbeing, but are associated with numerous economic, legal, security, health, and educational measures associated potentially with enhanced wellbeing for the entire population as well as for women and children. Further, freer countries are much more likely to be Christian. In contrast, countries which persecute Christians are associated with poorer measures of freedom and wellbeing for the entire population. In summary, freedom in Christianity is good for society in promoting a healthy population!
Dinesh D’Souza has covered this, too.
Book Review: ‘What’s So Great About Christianity’ by Dinesh D’Souza
I believe Christianity was originally meant to bring freedom and democracy to people.
AntiFa should change its name to AntiChri. That would be more accurate.
Countries don't HAVE to be Christian to know the value of faith, education and health.
The countries with problems are those run by despots and military juntas...like much China, Pakistan and most of Central and South America, the latter being all Christian countries. Those regimes put "staying in power" as their #1 priority...and the heck with the health of the people.
FAITH doesn't predict a government's interest in its people's health.
Living the Christian life may bring freedom from sin. THAT's the eternal gift. The temporal gifts of freedom and democracy have nothing to do with faith.
Just my opinion, Mm62.
Wanting people to live free from government tyranny is only one fruit of the spirit. The real goal is to save souls so that that spirit can flourish.
