Thinking About NVCC 7/2/2017

As we celebrate our nation’s birthday I wish to reflect for a moment on a line from, The Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” and ask, what did our founding fathers mean by that statement? Those great men recognized there was a natural law in the world that states everyone is endowed by their creator with inalienable rights; the right for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This then is the world view that our nation was founded on.

The only religious world view that would allow a nation to be founded on this principle is the Christian world view. The Pantheist does not believe we are equal; karma does not allow it. Buddhism does not believe in equality, for one is born again and again into different levels. Islam does not believe a person has the right to believe or disbelieve. Therefore America was founded on Christian principles.

The problem we now face is the freedoms are nations grants allows for the enjoyment of other religious views that when brought to their conclusion would destroy the very foundation on which our country is formed. Therefore, let us not forget our country’s underpinnings and hold fast to our Christian principles.

Happy Birthday America,

Kirby

Thinking About NVCC 7/6/2014

Happy 238th birthday to our beloved country, The United States of America. May God continue to bless her, and may she have many, many more birthdays! With that said, it should be of no surprise when I tell you we are breaking from our normal worship service today to do a blended service of both a celebration of God and of our country.

This blended service in no way detracts from our worship of God for, “He [God] makes nations great, and destroys them; he enlarges nations, and disperses them” (Job 12:23). Our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and therefore, our founding fathers knew what Job knew. Today we will sing songs like, “My Country Tis of Thee,” and “God Bless America.” We sing these songs because we are thankful to God for establishing this country, and we show that thankfulness with both songs and praises to God.

This is a great country! We love her, we are proud of her, and we thank God for her. Long may God be honored in our country!

Yee-Ha,

Kirby

Happy 237th birthday to our beloved country, The United States of America; may God continue to bless her, and may she have many, many more birthdays!

With that said, it should be of no surprise when I tell you we are breaking from our normal routine today to blend together our service into a celebration of God and our country. This in no way detracts from God for, “He [God] makes nations great, and destroys them; he enlarges nations, and disperses them” (Job 12:23). Our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and therefore, our founding fathers knew what Job knew. Today we will sing songs like, “My country tis of thee [God] sweet land of liberty of thee I sing,” because we are thankful God founded this country, and we touch base with that thankfulness not only with songs but also with praise to God for establishing America.

This is a great country! We love her, we are proud of her, and we thank God for her. Long may God be honored in our country!

Yee-Ha,

Kirby
