July 3rd, 2016

A celebration with biblical roots


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights…


                                   Declaration of Independence, 1776

                                   authored by Thomas Jefferson


Genesis 1:26-27


           Valuable& equal


Jesus revolution


Luke 4:18; 6:20


Matthew 10:16


Mark 10:41


Matthew 25:45


Galatians 3:28… “First egalitarian statement in history”




There is no way that it could have been ‘self-evident’ that all men are created equal without the influence of the Jews [Old Testament prophets]. Democracy grew directly out of the Israelite vision of individuals as subjects of value because they are images of God


Thomas Cahill, scholar & author of best-selling

The Christian religion… brought to the original purity and simplicity of its benevolent institutor, is a religion of all others most friendly to liberty, science and the freest expansion of the human mind.


                                                Thomas Jefferson


God who gave us life gave us liberty.And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?


                                               Thomas Jefferson,

People are created equal… ideas aren’t
