Did Jesus Christ stand for religious liberty?

No.

The New Testament is clearly against religious liberty.

In fact, the apostles of Jesus Christ (except for Judas Iscariot) were arrested and executed (“martyred for the Christian faith”) because they opposed religious liberty.

Jesus Christ Himself taught that He is the only way to Heaven, and His disciples passed on the same truth.

In a pluralistic democracy in which the disciples of Jesus Christ found themselves, they ran into trouble with the law (of the land), which emphasized religious liberty and tolerance for other religions.

Christianity from the very beginning emphasized Christian evangelism and the exclusive claim that Jesus Christ alone is the way to salvation.  All other religions (Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc.) lead to eternal damnation in Hell, according to the New Testament.  This is Gospel Truth.

And that is why there is the Great Commission.

Christians are to try to convert people of every other religion to Christianity, and this is the heart of the Christian Gospel.

The concept of religious liberty goes against the heart of the Christian Gospel and the Great Commission.

Churches throughout all 50 US states must oppose the concept of religious liberty and tolerance for other religions, because this goes against the very essence of the Christian Gospels.

When the Puritans arrived in the New World in 1620 with the Mayflower, they did not espouse religious liberty and religious tolerance.  They wanted a Christian nation that follows the Bible and glorifies God of the Bible.

Unfortunately, America has lost its way and has gone away from its Christian roots.  A major role in pushing this trend is the emphasis on religious liberty.  This is wrong from a Christian standpoint, based on the Bible.

If you go to a church that emphasizes religious liberty and religious tolerance, you should leave that church, since that church is not following the Bible.  Form a New Testament house-church with other people who want to be faithful to the New Testament and follow the Word of God.

Megachurches can become tools of the Empire to extend secularism and humanistic ideals.  It is theoretically possible for megachurches to be faithful to the Bible, but you have to be like the Bereans.  If your church, megachurch or not, emphasizes religious liberty and religious tolerance, then it does not subscribe to the emphasis by Jesus Christ, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”  

Trust in the Holy Spirit and let the Holy Spirit guide you and other Christians still loyal to the truth of the New Testament.  Do not be afraid to form your own “house church”.  God promises that where two or more are gathered, the presence of God is there.  You are the church, the Body of Christ.

As many local churches in the United States of America bow down to the anti-Christian elements in the federal government and the authority of the US Supreme Court and betray Jesus Christ and the Word of God, especially on the issue of homosexuality and gay marriage, you must stay true to the Word of God and be faithful. Semper Fi.

Let God know that not every Christian in America has bowed down to the anti-Christian secular authorities in Washington DC.
