Forth of July Thought

If Jesus had never lived, died and been resurrected would the United States of America exist? Possible but not in its present form. You see Christianity change the Western world. Slowly we went from barbarism to freedom. It was Christians who cam to this land to escape religious persecution. God is mentions frequently in our Declaration if Independence. Our first president was not ashamed of his Christianity. Christians led to the end of slavery in the West and the rights of women to vote and hold property.

This country owes much to Christianity. Unfortunately political correctness is causing the Christian roots of the great country to be swept under the rug. In the name of diversity we ignore and denigrate our achievements in order to raise up the achievements of other cultures. Forgetting our own achievements and culture.. We need to remember and celebrate our own roots while allowing for others the celebrate their own. That is what make this country great.

Have a blessed day,

David

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
