Ultimately, true freedom comes through the resurrection at Christ's return. As Paul explains in Romans 8:21, “the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
- John Adams, [Upon proclaiming a National Fast Day on March 6, 1799] ~ "The belief in a God All Powerful wise and good, is so essential to the moral order of the world and to the happiness of man, that arguments which enforce it cannot be drawn from too many sources nor adapted with too much solicitude to the different characters and capacities impressed with it." - James Madison, [Letter to Frederick Beasley, November 20, 1825] ~ Enough said!
The quotes I used are authenticated. There are many Christian quotes attributed to historical figures that we cannot be sure of. We don't need folks to make up stuff to support the truth. God's Word is truth. History tells us the majority of those involved in our founding recognized the same God of the same Bible we use today. Not every individual who lived at that time shared this view. Their right to see it that way was an essential part of the freedoms we established. However, the majority of those who influenced us becoming a nation did believe. That, my friend, is a fact. Period. No amount of historical revisionism or political correctness will change the facts. Let's all think about that as we enjoy our barbecue and fireworks celebrations. Amen. I do hope you will enjoy your Saturday and that Sunday will find us all in the meeting place where we can collectively give thanks to our Great God for all that He has done for us, individually, and as a nation. Thanks for tuning in today and know that Lord willing I will catch up with you next time. May God bless us all and may He bless this great nation again! Amen. ....More later.
