God in the Declaration of Independance

The Declaration of Independence
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. 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.

The words of The Declaration of Independence have been called America’s birth certificate.  The people who signed it risked not only their lives, but the lives of their families, and all their property.  You can bet they made sure to agree with every word it said before they signed it.  They even agreed with the phrases that I put in bold print, nature’s God, and endowed by their creator. Who could they have been talking about if not the God that inspired people to move here in search of religious liberty?

Some of its signers included; John Hancock, John Adams,  Samuel Adams,  Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson.

Yet some would have us believe even though the founders based their rights in their creator, who is nature’s God that they did not want God to have anything to do with this country. While it will take more evidence to prove that the God that they were referring to was the God of the Bible, those who read the Declaration in full with an open mind should be willing to consider the possibility that the founders had no problem with God.

Happy Flag Day!

It is so heart warming to see someone who actually loves this country.  Today we have a new breed of American that trash talks
America every chance they get. I can’t help but wonder how they manage to get those words out of their mouth. There are countries where it is impossible to get a clean glass 0f water, where children are forced to be soldiers, countries where you can get thrown in jail for saying negative things about their country. In our country on the other hand people live in relative peace. We have clean water to drink, some of the poorest of our people have televisions, when in other countries they have to dig in the trash cans of others to get food.
Countless people risk their lives to come here everyday. Leaving behind everything they hold dear.
Yes America has it’s troubles, every country does but I am not one bit ashamed to say I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!
