The second sentence of the Declaration of Independence reads is so very Kingdom. Check this out:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” This is truth and ‘on target’ with the kingdom.
“Unalienable rights” means they exist not because a government decree, but because they originated with God and the government needs to line up with God. God doesn’t need to line up with the government like the socialist agenda tells us.
Our founders were in agreement with the apostle Paul whenever he wrote:
“Now the Lord is that Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty” – 2 Corinthians 2:17
Muslims do not believe this. You can talk about how the muslim religion is perfect for America all you want. There’s not a practicing muslim in the world who believes God gave us unalienable rights to life or liberty.
There’s not an atheist in the world who believes that. The liberal school teachers and college professors of our generation do not believe this. The racists among us do not believe this. So who does believe this?
The Christians in America are the only ones in this nation who believe in what America is all about – liberty. If the Christians are silent in America, there is no America.
You say, “Oh no, Pastor Troy. The atheists will take care of us because they believe we’re all important and they believe in personal freedom.” No they don’t! Here’s what they believe: “I’m gonna get mine because I’m the only one who matters. It’s survival of the fittest and I will survive.”
What people group is going to stand for freedom? Who will stand up for the poor, the old, the outcast, the unborn, the addicted, or disabled if the body of Christ does not stand for those things? The only people who believe in what America believes are people who believe in what Jesus believes.
Do you see it? The Truth is a person. It is Jesus Christ. He is the self-evident Truth in our Declaration of Independence. Pray for unity in the American Church. Pray for revival and a boldness to stand up for Truth. Stand up for Jesus!
