For about four months now, I've really been interested in the subject of rights through God. We talked about it in FBI, a friend mentioned the subject, and all my reading material and homework has seemed to deal with the subject.
I did a simple, fun look into Charles Dickens and guess what - there it was again! His books are flooded with the issue of human rights. His characters cry out for justice, for liberty. They beg someone to come and release them from tyranny, giving them a chance at Christian rights.
Note, I don't say American rights. The mere principle of rights comes from Christianity and thus floods the world wherever the message of Jesus goes.
I am very proud to be in a country that still honors basic rights. No, our country is not perfect. In fact, it is really going downhill. But we still live in the greatest country on the planet. We still have freedom. We can meet and worship God in a church building. A good portion of the world can't meet for any reason, let alone for worshiping the Savior of the world.
We need to pray for our church; for our country. When there are 2 or 3 gathered in His name, He is there. And You+Jesus make a majority, no matter what. So let's also celebrate the fact that we are still a people under God!
Here is a really stirring arrangement of Battle Hymn of the Republic. I like the scenes they put with the music! I think I spied a few clips from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.... You know, that's a really good movie to watch!
And because I just got back from the South, and because I am Southern on my Mom's side, and because I like the song, and because I am being a trifle ornery with all you Northerners, check out I Wish I Was in Dixie Land!
Hurray! Hurray! And God bless the USA!
Ok, so as to not divide the Union, here is for yah Northeners!
Happy 4th of July! Let us thank God for our independence!
