“Endowed By Their CREATOR”

     For those who wish to remove any mention of the Creator from American public life, the Declaration of Independence is a very embarrassing document.  They want to hide it away.  Because right here, at the very beginning, we hear the birth cries of a Christian nation.


In CONCRESS, July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America


     “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 Founding Fathers knew that human rights do not come from government.  Our Life, Liberty and Happiness are gifts bestowed upon all men by the divine providence of the Almighty Creator of heaven and earth.


     Today, unfortunately, we have a theory, masquerading as science, that denies the Creator’s hand.  Time, chance, and a few billion happy mutations are said to have given man his dignified position atop nature’s family tree.  I have tried to find a patriotic secularist, because I want to ask him to explain how a man could possibly be endowed with ‘unalienable’ rights by an unguided and purposeless process of evolution.


      Though some have tried to suppress all knowledge of our nation’s Christian heritage, they cannot escape the self-evident truths of our founders’ unanimous Declaration.  As we celebrate the 230th anniversary of July 4, 1776, let us acknowledge the Creator and remember that with our nation’s first baby cries, she cried out the name of God.
