The Telegraph carries this headline,
Rev John Ross states,
Despite the fact that a majority of Scottish people (54 per cent) consider themselves Christian, in an independent Scotland, as a matter of public policy, and for the first time since the Reformation, Christianity will be deprived of its status as the national religion.
I struggle with this call to vote No.
Why is it so important that Christianity is the national religion? It’s a label and no more. The label doesn’t affect me and my faith, doesn’t affect Jesus, the Bible, God. Christianity being the national religion doesn’t make the country any more or less Christian. Only the Word of God and the work of his children will make Scotland a truly Christian country.
Scotland will become a Christian country as more and more turn to Jesus and as those, like me, who call ourselves Christian live our lives closer to God.
The Bible and not the label.
