There is no doubt that our political independence is worth celebrating every year. We have come a long way regarding self-determination and freedom and making our own decisions, whether foolish or wise. However, we must stop and evaluate what we have accomplished, what we are accomplishing, and what we hope to accomplish in the future. We have made some commendable progress on several fronts, like technology, health care, push toward equality, etc., but we have regressed in some areas like authentic spirituality and morality. Today, it is an offense in several places to practice your Christian faith and anathema to proclaim it publicly. The Bible is no longer accepted in public squares; even prayers must be generic. But the activists promoting homosexual lifestyle, Choice, free access to marijuana, pornography, etc., are snowballing unhindered. You know well enough from your own experience that there are some acts of so-called freedom that destroy freedom (Rom. 6:16. The Message). HAPPY INDEPENDENCE! But be sure you are really FREE!
