Here we are, July 4, 2013, two hundred and thirty-seven years from the day the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. On the first anniversary, July 4, 1777, in the nation’s capital of Philadelphia, prayers, parades, speeches, fireworks, and thirteen gun salutes were executed in celebration.
The substantiation that the Declaration of Independence and God cannot be separated can send atheists/liberals into wild-eyed paroxysms, flailing about the streets, stabbing at their eyes with the brooch that revealed the naked truth of the Declaration of Independence and God.
This nation’s founding documents were founded upon the laws and rights granted from God; the laws of this nation were based upon English common law, which was based on Christianity.
The congress of God and the Declaration of Independence:
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
Who is responsible for “the laws of nature” but God—certainly not man nor nature itself?
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
The rightness of our cause was left to God as judge
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
God’s intervention in the world.
If one were to rely on atheist’s construction of American history, the Founding Fathers were infested with deists; even the clergy were closeted deists. After the application of a single dose of anti-conjecture, the cure divines only three deists involved with the founding documents.
Liberals/atheists bandy about the use of “Nature’s God” and “Laws of Nature” in the Declaration of Independence; these were terms used by the European deists of the era as evidence that God created the universe and the laws of nature, but from that point forward, provided no Divine Intervention. But “Nature’s God” and “Laws of Nature,” as understood and employed by the founders, were the laws that God used to create the universe, govern his people, and govern nature.
What liberals/atheist cannot reconcile is the use of the term “Divine Providence” just a few short paragraphs later, which is God’s intervention in the world; this is contrary to liberal/atheist’s definition of “Nature’s God” and “Laws of Creation.” According to liberal/atheists, in one paragraph God does not intervene, and in another, the signers of the Declaration of Independence signed the document attesting their reliance on the protection of Divine Providence in the quest for independence.
