Is Christianity Essential for Freedom?

PJTV member “Will Do Math for Food” asks if Jesus’ followers created the best basis for a “pursuit of happiness” society? Is Christianity the sine qua non?

    I’m curious as to whether you are Christian, Mr. Klavan.

    I’m glad you backtracked on the “Judeo” comment Andrew. Jesus and all the apostles were Jews practicing 1st century Judaism. The Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) is the foundation upon which ALL other Scripture in both the Old and New Testaments rest. Torah and the prophets spoke a great deal of the coming Messiah (Jesus). Nothing was to be added to nor subtracted from the Torah (Deut 4:2, Deut 12:32) and Jesus confirmed this in Matthew 5:17-20. God does not change. Thank you for your work in conservative thought. – Mike
