Sure, the 4th of July means a backyard barbecue.
And a whole lot of this...
"My country tis of thee...sweet land of liberty...of thee I sing...land where my father's died...land of the pilgrims pride from every mountain side...Let freedom ring!"
Everyone knows this first line of the song. But did you know the last line?
"Our father's God to thee, author of liberty, to thee we sing. Long may our land be bright with freedom's holy light, protect us by thy might...great God our King!"
Something we have forgotten...somewhere between the Uncle Sam and the backyard barbecue.
Let us remember ...those who have fought for our freedom and the one who gave it to us in the first place.
Part of the ten commandments (Exodus 20) in The Bible states: "Thou shall have no other gods before me."
Our nation was built on that premise. We do not have to answer to any other king, tyranny, or ruler. God is our king. This is why the ten commandments have been seen in courthouses and communities across the nation. And slowly they're being taken away ... by people who don't remember (or care) what our country is based on.
What people fought for. And died for.
"One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Take away God and we have become divisible.
Something to think about.
