Also in light of 4th of July, its a good reminder of who is in control and who we trust; God.  I think the founders would echo something similiar to this:  Don’t trust in America, trust in God.  Listen to Patrick Henry, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”  Now read about God’s providence and it’s advantages here by John Piper.
