Remember Our Founders

text size A A A

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Those powerful words are from the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence, which was adopted 240 years ago today. Our nation's Founders stood out from the pages of history as committed, courageous people who put everything on the line so that we might be free. They did not compromise.

In 1776, the original colonies declared independence from the rule of Great Britain and King George the III. Soon the War of Independence began. As a result, these brave men sacrificed their lives and fortunes while pledging their sacred honor in the cause of freedom.

It is time for today's America to embrace the popular motto used during the War of Independence: "No King but King Jesus!"

Over time, 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence. Of the 56 men, 12 fought in battles, 5 were captured and imprisoned, 17 lost property due to British raids, and 5 lost their savings to help fund the Continental Army and state militias. Today, we not only thank and remember the courage of those 56 men, but we also honor the countless heroic men and women who were part of the fight for independence and freedom!

The inscription around the top of the Liberty Bell is Leviticus 25:10. Yes, you read that correctly. A Bible verse still rings forth the truth from where it was etched onto the Liberty Bell. Leviticus 25:10 says: "Proclaim liberty throughout the land and to all the inhabitants thereof."

Friends, our country is in serious trouble as our freedoms are slowly being siphoned away. It's our turn to ring out the truth from the liberty bell within our hearts and do all we can to peacefully yet effectively defend freedom. We urge you to read this month's edition of Unite the USA to learn more.

Hope again, friends. Know that God remains on the throne. With Him, all things are possible!

In God we still trust,
Carrie and Stacie Stoelting
Sisters and Founders of Unite the USA
