‘One Nation under God’ celebrating Freedom

At a time when freedom itself is being challenged by some uncouth anti-socialists, who want to instill terror and violence upon the face of the earth, it is great to celebrate and be grateful for the gift of freedom. However, does Freedom mean to do whatever one wants – anything that is not guided by the true spirit of one’s religion?
At the least the terrorists think freedom means to do whatever they want, even falsely borrowing religious sanctions to support their ideology.
We would all be insane if we bought into this terrorist ideology even for a moment. We could end up turning the hearts and minds of people towards embracing such an ideology—perhaps backed by religious scripture and religious sanctions—an ideology run amuck. Neither religion nor sanity advocates such an act that intrudes into the freedom of humanity. The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7). True fear of God will allay such an insane pursuit.
Freedom is the greatest gift of God to humanity. It’s unto each individual to engage one’s volition in the light of faith and reason. We are ‘One nation under God’ and we cannot think of any other mode of existence other than being under the banner of God’s love and mercy. For the history of this nation is rooted in Him. “…It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor…” President George Washington
Let’s then celebrate our faith and freedom and continue to live as good and faithful Christians and honest citizens.
