Forty Days to November
Day 6: Our Sacred Duty

In the Declaration of Independence, American Colonists were determined to defend "the laws of nature and of nature's God." This phrase defines the key principle upon which the Founders stood.  The laws of nature meant the will of God for man as revealed to man's reason.  However, because we all know (most of us anyway) that we're far from perfect, and that our reasoning does not always comprehend Nature's law, simply put, we have the Bible to make God's law absolutely clear.
Have you read
this document lately?
The churches in the colonies became a voice of freedom, stirring the fires of liberty by telling the colonists that the British government was usurping their God-given rights and that the king and Parliament wee violating the laws of God.  The Founding Fathers were convinced that it was their sacred duty to uphold the law of God against the unjust and oppressive laws of men.  This fight for political liberty was seen as a sacred cause because civil liberty is an inalienable right, according to God's natural law.

Tonight, we have the much anticipated first debate between two very, very different candidates, with the subject supposedly being on domestic policy.  In absorbing the position that the Founders had, that of a sacred duty to uphold Nature's law and the law of God, how easy it is to see how far America is removed from this defense of liberty by any leaders at all.  God gives us liberty: Not a king, not a President, not a Justice. Which of our candidates for President likely carries in his heart the same "sacred duty to uphold the law of God against the unjust and oppressive laws of men?" Pray you that this sense of duty comes through in the exchange of words this evening.  A true leader, believing in freedom through liberty given to each of us by God, will not step in between.

Patriot's Prayer: Lord, You give us our basic rights. May we therefore live as You would have us live.

Patriot's Promise: "The LORD gives us freedom" -Psalm 146:7

The Signers
--And for the support of this Declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
