There is no honest way to claim God was not directly involved in the creation of this great land; the Founders made it very clear in all of their great pronouncements and He was ever present in their thinking. Sadly, however, there are many today trying to push just such an anti-God narrative using a humanistic Brotherhood of Man idea under the assumption that mankind is able to do all things and all good on His own. The problem with that is that we humans are weak and sinful in nature and without God in our hearts we easily succumb to the lust for money and power, among the other false gods around us. In such instances, without God to fend them off, it is easy to develop a sense in our darkened hearts of craving power and assuming a self-centered right to rule and make decisions for others among us. It is just that kind of thinking that made the Founders scorn the monarchy. It is the kind of thinking that leads to the tyranny that they were trying to protect us from through the protections of the Constitution.
So as we go about our business on this day after our national celebration of independence, look at the evidence of God all about us. Wonder at the beauty of the trees and the meadows, the rivers and the seas. Marvel at the various different animals forms, including humans, that exist on this earth, each unique in its own way. And, of course, look up to the skies in the evening at the grand picture of the universe unfolding right before us. When we do, how can we relate all those things to a "Big Bang" or some other happenstance? We can't, for the perfection and the intricacy could only have been the product of something so powerful, so wonderful and so loving to give us the chance to live in it and experience it. And that same power, that magnanimous God, is the very source, the very power from which our Founders came up with the most noble experiment ever developed for man. And it's up to us to redouble our efforts to cherish it, honor it and save it for generations to come.
If we want God to continue giving His abundant blessings to us, it's imperative that we honor, love and respect Him and live our lives in a way that pleases Him. If we do that, America will remain the Land of the Free. To do otherwise, we will just sink into the morass of strife and turmoil that so much of the world faces today. Freedom with God or tyranny under man: it's really just as simple as that.
God bless America.
