Here are some great quotes that I think fit with the celebration of our Independence:
"The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: It connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity"
John Quincy Adams
"And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?"
I think the last quote is so true today. We all need to remember that
"Righteousness exalts a nation,
but sin is a disgrace to any people."
