We have been blessed as the longest on going Constitutional Republic in the history of the world .. and Friends .. these blessings are not accidental .. they come straight from the hand of God .. for on July 2, 1776 .. Congress voted to approve a complete separation from England .. two days later .. the early draft of the Declaration of Independence was signed .. four days later .. members of Congress took the document and read it out loud from the steps of Independence Hall .. proclaiming it to the city of Philadelphia .. afterwards .. they rang the Liberty Bell .. for which the inscription on the top of the bell comes from Leviticus 25:10 .. which boldly states .. “Proclaim liberty throughout the land and to all the inhabitants thereof” .. yes .. independence for all .. and these principles on which they were achieved were based on the principles of Christianity .. they all knew that this Declaration would be celebrated by future generations .. over and over again as .. the Great Anniversary Festival .. you see .. at the time .. only about 17 percent (compared to the now over 76%) of the country claimed to be Believers .. wow .. and out of that .. 27 of the 56 Founding Fathers were trained as Ministers .. and .. we can believe they took their pledge seriously .. for the Declaration of Independence is the birth certificate for this very nation .. on the morning of the signing .. there was silence and gloom as each man was called up to the table of the President of Congress to sign the document .. knowing that it could mean their death by hanging .. yet still .. these brave men .. followed their hearts as God had instructed them to do .. with that .. what we must remember today is simple .. the Founding Fathers have passed the torch to us and it’s our responsibility to never let it go out .. so amidst the fireworks and celebrations of this day .. may we all pause for a moment with a grate-full heart and reflect upon this fact .. the country we live in today .. started with God .. and .. with the Founders’ belief in our rights .. which are His gift to each and every one of us .. and with that .. sweet friends .. we can stand firm and shout .. oh yeah .. Love Wins Period.

“For you were called to freedom .. brothers .. only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh .. but through love .. serve one another”
