Two hundred and forty-one years ago this week, America’s Founders declared their independence from Britain and began a process that led to a transfer of governing power almost unprecedented in human history. The people of the United States would not only have the right to choose their government leaders, but also the right to free political speech and the right to freely practice their religion.
But Christians cannot forget that all authority, including that which we hold in the political arena, comes from God, and it has been entrusted to us in America by God’s good providence. So, while we take time this week to thank God for our nation’s independence and the freedoms we enjoy, let us also remember that we are not independent from God in the use of the powers He’s entrusted to us.
