This July 4th marks 244 years since America declared independence from England. Sometimes we forget that what was at stake was FREEDOM itself which the Bible says God wants for all people. It says that knowing the Truth is what sets us free (John 8:32), that Jesus is the Truth (John 14:6) and that wherever His Spirit is present there is FREEDOM (2 Corinthians 3:17). At its root, freedom isn’t a political thing, it’s a blessing from God and many in the 18th century American clergy saw unrighteous bondage to England as the usurping of a sacred biblical endowment.
