Letter: Holiday renews our allegiance
Sunday, July 10, 2011
Are we are still one nation under God, as our Founding Fathers believed?
Between the marvelous Ridgefield, “real country” parade, the fireworks on TV and right in the neighborhood, we have so very much to be thankful for.
Each one of those explosions in the air says to me, “Thank you, God, for this nation and all those who have paid a price to keep us free.”
There is a fight going on to destroy this holy heritage we have been given. There are those who hate what our Founding Fathers stood for.
Those people’s ideas are quite contrary to the biblical principles on which this nation was built; first, that our laws were based on the “laws of nature and of nature’s God”; second, that we have been created equal by our Creator with these “unalienable rights”; third, that we can appeal to the supreme judge of the world for rectitude; and lastly, that we can and must rely on the protection of divine providence to keep us free.
Every good patriot who loves his country and the God who so graciously gifted us with this nation should pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
