Happy 4th of July

In the United States, we celebrate our national 'birthday' this weekend. The Fourth of July.

"Having undertaken for the Glory of God and the advancement of the Christian Faith" - The Mayflower Compact

"This Nation was founded not by religionist, but by Christians; not on religion, but the Gospel of Jesus Christ" - Patrick Henry

"We recognize no sovereign but God and no King but Jesus!" - John Adams and John Hancock

"The Constitution, A system which without the finger of God never could have been suggested..." - Alexander Hamilton

James Madison conceived the three branches of Government by inspiration of Isiah 33:22.

"For the Lord is our Judge [Judicial]
The Lord is our Lawgiver [Legislative]
The Lord is our King [Executive]
He will save us." Isiah 33:22

"God who gave us life gave us Liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their basis?" - Thomas Jefferson

"to the distinguished character of patriot it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian" - George Washington

"The birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the savior" John Quincy Adams

Freedom forged on the Cross is the freedom that inspired the Constitution.

Have a safe and happy holiday!!
