The Glorious Freedom of God’s Children
Romans 8:18-25

Pastor Terry Wilcox

Americans have spent their lives, blood, and treasure here and abroad helping those who fight for their freedom.

True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.

The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.

-John Adams

I Peter 2:16-17 NIV

It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christian; not on religions but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here.
