Digest this before your Fourth of July picnic

Saturday, July 3, 2010, 10:53 pm |

With America’s Christian values seeming to erode wherever you turn, we must be honest about our own unpatriotic values. Will you join me in admitting that you look forward to food and friends and fun on July 4th more than you want to thank God and rehear the patriotic sayings of our founding fathers on Independence Day?

Yes, it’s taken only 234 years since 1776 for our minds to become clouded and our senses to become dulled. For whenever deeply rich, real and precious things are replaced with more pleasurable substitutes and fantasies, these counterfeits secretly rule our hearts, minds and souls. Yes, the strong materialistic pull of our “me first” culture affects even conservative, pro-family folks!

Do you want America to return to its moral excellence and again be “one nation under God?”  Do you want to extinguish all counterfeits, ignorance, and useless frivolity regarding America’s past, present and future? Do you want to “walk in the Spirit” so that you don’t “fulfill the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16)?

If you want to experience a real Independence Day, please take some time to rediscover the treasure chest of truth about the Christian roots of the United States of America. For there is both great purpose and tangible benefits of being an American!

So before you attend a Fourth of July picnic, please digest this and plan to share it with others. As a result, you and they will become better and our country has a chance to become better too:

1.    The 1337 words of the Declaration of Independence
2.    Pat Boone: “Let’s redeclare our independence”
3.    Celebrating America’s Birthday: Famous July Fourth Orations by David Barton
4.    John Quincy Adams’ Independence Day speech (1837)
5.    Jane Chastain: “Christians are slackers”

“It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore.”
— Founding Father John Adams, our 2nd President
