Governments play an essential role in protecting and maintaining religious freedom and in fostering the role of churches in society. Fortunately, most governments in the world today recognize at least some degree of religious freedom and ensure to their citizens the right to worship and to practice their religion according to the dictates of their own conscience. That has not always been the case. While governments enforce the law written on the books, religion teaches and encourages adherence to the law written in the heart. Those who abide the latter will seldom if ever violate the former.

The role of religion has been developing since the formation of mankind. People have always needed to believe in some supernatural power, which could explain nature phenomena. Different kinds of religions like Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism have thought believers in all world, how to behave themselves. In eastern and middle Europe was religious feeling opressing by communist government because the Church was judged as a servival of feudal system. As a result of that fell a number of believers. Not everywhere were communists succesful. In Polland has religion still very important role in society.

Where the government oversteps its authority, the people have the right, as listed in the Constitution, to make their grievances known through petition and through public elections for government office. As 16th President of the United States Abraham Lincoln once said, "Our government rests in public opinion. A principle tenet of the Republican conception of limited government is what Lincoln called self-government, a "sacred right at the foundation of the sense of justice. The rationale behind this is simple: "No man is good.

The government taxes the public and has huge sums of money to disburse to various programs and projects. Those in the government who wield these powers hold the fate of virtually everyone in their decision-making hands. It imposes licensing and regulatory restrictions on free and open competition. It transfers great amounts of income and wealth to different groups through sundry redistributive schemes. It is inevitable that those drawn to employment in the political arena often will see the potential for personal gain in how and for whose benefit or harm they apply their vast life-determining decrees and decisions.

Religion & Public Life. You don’t have to believe that our religious institutions can replace government, and I certainly don’t believe that, to acknowledge their indispensable role. People in our religious institutions are both practical and loving providers of service and they are also prophetic and critical voices, asking us always to heed the words of the prophet Isaiah, To undo the heavy burdens and let the oppressed go free. There can be a tension between these two roles and I think that’s a tension my friend Jim Wallis writes about powerfully in the book and will address today.
