In declaring our Independence from England, were our Founders rebels, pushing against God-ordered government?  Or were they revolutionaries, re-establishing God-ordered civil government?  It’s way past time we again considered the twenty-seven reasons they listed for declaring Independence.  They stated:

Why America Declared Independence 1

King George III

“The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.  To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

“He has refused his Assent to Laws…wholesome and necessary for the public good.

“He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance…

“He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature…

The Bible says, “Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” (Galatians 5:1)

Ladies and Gentlemen: The following document is the reason you and I, in America, are free:

Todd Starnes, a noted news commentator, was quoted the day following the shooting of U.S. Representative, Steve Scalise of Louisiana, while Republican House members were on a baseball field practicing for a charity game.  Starnes reported, I quote:

Yesterday was a bad day for America.  It was an ugly day.

Words Produce Life or Death 1“A former Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer who hated President Trump opened fire on Republicans during baseball practice Wednesday.  House Majority Whip Steve Scalise [was] in critical condition.  Two incredibly brave Capitol Police officers were also injured along with a House aide.

“Rep. Mark Walker told NBC News it appeared the “gunman was there to kill as many Republican members as possible.”  Rep. Rodney Davis blamed what he called “political rhetorical terrorism.”  This political discourse has led to gunfire,” the Illinois Republican said.
