On July 4 we celebrate Independence Day, a day that for over 200 years has symbolized all that is good about these United States of America. How did the United States become such a modern day beacon of freedom over the last several hundred years? Is this country still the same beacon of the same freedom or has something changed?
Today is a day unique in America, for history tells us that it was 234 years ago on this day that a group of men gathered in Philadelphia and approved the final draft of a declaration that would dramatically change their lives and eventually change the world. That Declaration of Independence would mark America as a symbol of liberty and freedom across the globe to which people from the farthest corners of the world would line up to be a part of. We want to look at the value of freedom as well as the role that God has played in America.
