Independence Day – July 4, 2007

"Rebellion against tyrants is obedience to God."
~ Benjamin Franklin

It’s not uncommon to hear that America is heading in the wrong direction. Unfortunately, most modern day leaders have no moral compass with which to redirect our course!

“We are in decline concerning freedom as a direct result of turning away from the cry of the revolution ‘No king but Jesus’, to a humanistic cry of ‘No king but self’.” (Berman)

Bishop Galloway wrote in his series of lectures titled Christianity and the American Commonwealth, in 1898, “A nation ashamed of its ancestry will be despised by its posterity” (5). I have to ask the question, is this why there are so many “blame America first” politicians, advocates, and journalists? Have we reached the point that current generations despise America because of the shame being aimed at our Christian heritage?

I feel that it is imperative for our great nation to acknowledge and embrace our Christian heritage. It is in no way meant to advocate for a theocracy (church controlled government) any more than our founding documents did, but it is essential to understand where our government came from, and on what principles it was founded. If we forget, we will lose it! We are headed for total (atheistic) secularization. Whether it results in some form of socialism, communism or some hybrid there of, it will mean the end of liberal and representative government. Dr. Galloway cautions, “Political atheism will inevitably produce political anarchy” (13).

“. . . can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath.”
- Thomas Jefferson, 1781

“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
- George Washington, October 3, 1789

Happy Independence day America! I pray God would awaken the American citizen and raise up Godly leaders. I pray Christ’s leaders on earth and all the saints would lead America in repentance and revival. I pray there would be no King but Jesus. God bless America! In Jesus Christ’s name I pray – Amen.
