Declaration of Independence

and its godly thoughts

The Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence of the United States of America acknowledges faith towards a supreme God who created mankind. The Declaration also acknowledges by all who signed it, the laws of God, the providence of God, and the judgment of God.

The Declaration also appeals to God as the Supreme Judge of the world for their intentions. Furthermore, for the support of this Declaration, the signers relied firmly on the protection of Divine Providence.

No student should fail to know these truths of our American history. Encourage the teachers in your school to distribute this information. It certainly is not in the current text books given to most students in public schools. This kind of godly heritage information must be provided by parents and pastors and god fearing teachers. The state has not done it. It's up to you. What your child learns depends in large part upon you.

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station
to which the laws of nature
and of nature's God
entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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.

That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed
That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in general Congress assembled,
appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name and by the authority of the good people of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent States, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliance, establish commerce, and do all other acts and things which independent States may of right do.

And for the support of this Declaration,
with a firm reliance

on the protection

of Divine Providence,
we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

Support the work

When those Signers of the Declaration wrote the words ...firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence,...a school child can see, if the teacher shows him, how close this is saying they put their trust in God to help them accomplish what they believed to be the will of God....! See First John chapter 5 verses 12 throught 14, ie 1John 12:14. The Signers also did everything possible for them to do in the natural. They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their honor to one another in support of their intent. This fulfills another scripture which teaches us to do all we can do and then stand firm in hope and trust towards God. See Ephesians 6:13 where it says, ...and having done all (you can do), then stand firm (in the grace of God trusting Him to make it sufficient.) Christ is our sufficiency, especially when we are not presumptuous but pay the price we are given to do.
