Independence Day. Almost every country has one. It is an anniversary, a reminder of liberation from slavery under tyranny. The U.S. was liberated on July 4, 1776---243 years ago. Starting as just 13 colonies off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, America was founded on principles with the intention to keep the government regulated to avoid too much control in any given area. This led to the establishment of the three branches of the capitalist government: judicial, executive, and legislative. However, instead of this year feeling like a celebration to mark the 243rd year of liberation from tyranny, this year of 2020 has felt as if America has lapsed back to before it was liberated. This Independence Day 2020 tribute reflects on freedom's virtues.
Freedom to Chains: Independence Day 2020 Tribute
The headlines of riots litter every major news headline. The establishment of Chaz threatens peace and leaders continue to shy away from their mandate to uphold order. Whole cities have been burning from "social justice." Social ideologies from the Liberal agenda have been forced through mainstream outlets. Companies have been forced to foreclose due to personal choice being stripped as quarantine increased. It doesn't stop at the U.S. borders. Protests have been ignited in London and other parts of the UK. Marxism behind the BLM movement spread like wildfire. After seeing these events play out across an explosive year, one is left to wonder: is this freedom? Is this the beginning of the demise of a country that was founded to preserve personal freedom? The true face of human depravity has revealed itself and the masked intent of sin has shown its true ugly colors.
How far we have strayed from God. He has been completely removed from schools, from curriculums, from businesses, and finally from the government. A nation that once stood apart from the world and was blessed for upholding its commitment to God has now turned completely from Him, parading its pornographic and hateful society with loud banners and riots. Oh how greatly freedom has been forgotten. On this anniversary, let us not forget the sacrifices and the true reason for the hope that comes from the one true God.

Human Trafficking is Today’s Slavery
The numbers of the victims of human trafficking and the stories behind the numbers are why Blissful Faith is partnering with nonprofit organizations to help fund rescues and recovery programs for those entrapped in bondage. Each number is a person. You can be the one to help make a difference by purchasing a shirt (coming soon to the blog in a few weeks) or by ordering a downloadable product currently in the store, in which proceeds will go to nonprofits that seek to give a voice to the voiceless. See more on human trafficking from my previous articles below:
The Price of Freedom
The Fight to Preserve Freedom
Blissful Faith started as a lifestyle and branched into a blog to help others hear about Jesus Christ and how they too can develop a blissful faith through knowing God. This blog’s purpose is to be an evangelical outreach to further the kingdom of Christ. Furthering the kingdom means stretching outside of the comfort zone, comprehending and working towards meeting the needs of others. Putting faith to action keeps it from becoming stagnant.
Blissful Faith Merchandise
The Blissful Faith Merchandise store helps both this blog to grow and to meet the needs of others. About 8-10% of the proceeds will go to The Exodus Road and Agape International Missions to help combat human trafficking. The funds will help assist in rescue operations, providing shelter, and recovery programs to those in bondage.
