It's All About Liberty
As I write these few lines I am struck by the thought that there is no one telling me that I can't say what I want to say. There is no fear of uniformed men breaking down my door because I happen to disagree with my government. Yet.
Christ died on the cross in order that we can be free from the penalties of our sin. Patriots died at Lexington and Concord and Valley Forge so that we can be free from the ravages of capricious government. No, I am not equating the actions of our Revolutionary heroes with those of our Lord though the enabling concept is the same. We believe in Christ for our soul liberty and in the Constitution for all others. The latter exists only because of our position in the former.
So let us enjoy all our freedoms, they are ever so precious and bought at such great sacrifice.
