The Declaration of Independence lists the Deity of God four times. Some fun history with the 4th of July around the corner.

Did you know the Declaration of Independence lists the Deity of God four times???

-When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

-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.

-We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States;

-And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor”

There are 27 grievances in the Declaration of Independence, but for some reason we only talk about “taxation without representation”. Take a few minutes and read the Declaration today.

You can take 30 minutes and watch the 4th of July message that I gave last year. I put America on trial for you — I am the attorney, and you are the judge and juror and you get to determine if America was founded on Christian principles. Click here.
