(This week), we celebrated 240 years of freedom. The Declaration of Independence of the United States was accepted on July 4, 1776, and is a document many say was written in a Christian culture by Christian men.
I have my doubts for several reason, but the history I read says otherwise. If not, they were still good, moral men compared to today’s leaders. You don’t have to be Christian to be a good, moral man.
Why were they not more expressive in pronouncing Jesus Christ as Lord and Creator? Can you imagine the impact the founding document could have today if, instead, it read: “Jesus Christ created us and He was God”? (Col. 1:12-13, 16) Today, our government is trashing the Constitution and blaspheming the name of Jesus.
We can see in the founding documents the mentioning of God and refers to Him as Creator: “When in the course of human events … Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God … that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Just who is this “Nature’s God?” All religions have a god … it’s Mother Earth, of course, which is a euphemism for nature. The mentioning of “Nature’s God” in the Declaration of Independence by the founding fathers indicates that some purport to have been deists. They believe God created the Earth and then stepped back from it — a god who does not intercede in the affairs of men and does not give revelation to men. In other words, deists believe men are self-sufficient and do not need God to meddle in their daily affairs.
Isn’t this what we see today?
It would do no good to remember that the world’s most powerful secret society, the Illuminati, was secretly founded on May 1, 1776, by Adam Weishaupt and four associates. They foresaw nothing less than a liberty-based New World Order. There are theories afloat today that secret Illuminati still have a plan to bend the world to their way of thinking — that is, communism.
Ephesians 6 says: “… we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Satan has been defeated, but is temporarily in charge of this world.
Seems to me that politics, religion and political correctness have not changed since 1776. What about our founding fathers … could most of them have just been good, moral men?
