Happy Birthday America…Freedom is found in God

On  July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was signed by congress and the US celebrates this day as federal holiday.   Our founding fathers believed in freedom.  They wanted life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  The founding fathers believed in God.

James Madison, our fourth president is known as the Father of  our Constitution.  He made the following statement, “We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” Exodus 20:1:26 (NIV) has the ten commandments:

1.  You shall have no other gods before me.

2.  You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything.

3.  You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God.

4.  Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

5.  Honor your father and your mother.

6.  You shall not murder.

7.  You shall not commit adultery.

8.  You shall not steal.

9.  You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10.  You shall not covet.

God can only save America, not Romney or Obama.
