Signing of the Declaration of Independence
THE BIRTH OF A NATION
Tomorrow we celebrate the signing in Congress on July 4, 1776, the unanimous declaration of the thirteen United States of America. Today I heard Pastor Chuck Baldwin preach and here is some of what he said which you can read completely online here: "The United States of America was built upon three fundamental documents: The Declaration of Independence, The U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Taken together, these documents form the basis of all our laws, principles and heritage. To destroy the principles contained in these documents is to destroy the country. Unfortunately, that is exactly what has been happening for many years now. The destruction of America's founding principles can be directly traced to the country's willful rejection of the Bible as our source of divine authority. America has done more than expel God and the Bible from our schools; it has expelled God and the Bible from politics, commerce, and even our very way of life. Should it be any wonder, then, that our founding documents are also being expunged? After all, America's founding documents are themselves predicated upon God and the Bible." LORD JESUS, PLEASE FORGIVE US OF OUR SINS AND BRING REVIVAL TO THE LAND!
