Our desire to declare independence comes from our time at creation. Genesis 1:27 (NLT) “1 So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Being created in the image of God, we have a free will and that brings with it the desire of freedom. This principle alone was instrumental in the forming of our nation today, yet is also the source of many debates and conflicts throughout history and still today. While we declared Independence from Great Britain, we must never forget to make our Declaration of Dependence on God alone!
