Speaking of Freedom: What is the source?

February 10, 2011

To most people the world over Old Glory is the symbol of freedom! When they think of freedom they think of America and vice versa. And rightfully so. But where do our freedoms come from?

It is clear from our true history that the Bible was the primary source of the "self-evident truths" articulated in the Declaration then codified in the Constitution. This progression, "...brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." as President Lincoln so memorably stated in his Gettysburg Address.
I am convinced that, to paraphrase Abraham Lincoln, "...if government of by and for the people is not to perish from the earth, this nation, under God, must have a new birth of freedom." If that is to happen, remembering from whence our freedoms come will be key.
