I cannot top this essay over at Patriot Post on the tie between Christianity and liberty. I fear that we have forgotten Thomas Jefferson’s insight into the subject:
God who gave us life gave us Liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.
When we turn our nation turns its back on God and fail to acknowledge that all we have are gifts from Him.
