Many major internet sites and encyclopedias identify the 4th of July as “America’s largest religious holiday,” and the compendium outlines “secular” as “pertaining to things that aren’t regarded as non secular or sacred.” the events leading in to America’s birthday were anything except temporal. As George Washington recognized, “The hand of Providence has been so conspicuous in all this that he has got to be worse than an infidel that lacks religion, and more than evil, which has not gratitude enough to recognize his obligations.” And John Adams endorsed : “The general elements that the fathers achieved autonomy were the general elements of Christianity.”
In truth, he even advised that America’s birthday “be honored as a day of solemn deliverance .by solemn acts of attention to God Almighty.”. The significance of recollecting God’s Hand in Yank autonomy was passed from generation to generation ? Illustrated by John Quincy Adams’ famous 1837 oration in which he reminded USA citizens. “The birthday of the state is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior. Laid the foundation of human government on the first precepts of Christianity.” Regardless of the abounding proof, some prominent Christian priests now claim the 4th of July was an act of willful insubordination against God and that God thus can’t bless America? The 4th of July is nothing for a Christian to celebrate. How are you able to help to keep this year’s 4th of July from becoming “America’s largest religious holiday”?
Take a little time to respect and thank the Lord on the 4th? Make it a day celebrated “with solemn acts of attention to God Almighty”. Knowing the explanations for our founding is no less critical today than it was 233 years gone. This is a flag-waving time of the year, so review the interesting account surrounding Francis Scott Key’s writing of the Star-Spangled Banner.
