Independence Day

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…
Psalm 33:12

Many men and women have fought and died for our liberty. The Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, but it was not until after the American Revolution ended that we won our independence from Great Britain.

Our founding fathers wrote The Declaration of Independence based on Biblical principles: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness––but how is true liberty attained? Chuck Smith warned us as Americans of the importance of keeping God at the center of our nation:

Oh how important it is that God is the centrality of a nation. When a nation is centered around God, that nation is destined for greatness …when people lose the centrality of the concepts of God and God is no longer the center of their life, God is no longer the center of the national life, then that nation is in decline. It is tragic indeed that where once God was the center of our nation and our nation was really founded upon God and our founding fathers sought to bring to these people a consciousness and awareness of God and the need of God in our nation life.

We need to have God at the center of America and the center of our lives if we truly want to exist in a Christian nation. If we have God in the center our country, will remain free, and America will stay free.

Happy are the people whose God is the Lord!
~Psalm 144:5~
