Part of that declaration proclaims: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
Notice that our founders said that we were given inalienable rights from God, our Creator. This means that since God gave us those rights; then only God was supposed to be able to take them away from us.
One of our nation’s founding fathers, John Adams said that the founding fathers achieved independence on “the general principles of Christianity.” Our founders used the Holy Scriptures to guide them in their personal and political lives. They knew that as they followed what God said in the Bible they could bring forth a great nation.
The Declaration of Independence states that they had such a great vision that they could say that: “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”
However, in sharp contrast to the Christian and freedom-loving principles of our founding fathers; in recent years there have been progressive and socialistic-minded politicians who seem to have been following some seducing demonic spirits and their deceptions so that they are trying to destroy America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and the concept of people having God-given rights possibly with the intent of instituting a tyrannical form of government which wants to control every area of people’s lives and then them the few rights that they have.
It also seems that those seduced politicians are trying to transform this country into having a European and socialist style of government so they can merge our country into the coming New World Order.
Even though Revelation chapter 13 prophesies the coming of a world government based on the corrupt principles of the Devil; Christian Americans don’t have to let the demonic spiritual forces of darkness and tyranny totally transform every level of government!
Instead of letting that happen, our country needs many Christian government officials, judges, lawyers, and many Christian people to use their talents in their occupations, Scriptural principles, and the spiritual weapons described in Ephesians 6:10-18 to fight the spiritual forces of darkness that are trying to destroy our precious freedoms and bring government tyranny as a way of life.
As good Christian people show our government and legislative leaders how to apply God’s principles of leadership and living found in the Bible in making righteous laws and judicial decisions that will govern America in a righteous manner, then freedom will once again become the foundation of our great nation.
When that is done, then America can once again become the beacon of freedom in the midst of our modern world that is full of political, intellectual, and spiritual darkness!
