Charles Warner|Daily TimesIn “The Gettysburg Address,” Abraham Lincoln described America as being “conceived in liberty.” He was right, because America was conceived in liberty with a system of government designed to protect and respect the liberties of its citizens. This makes America unique among all the nations of the world before and since. Yet, as great as the liberty of an American is, there is a still greater liberty, the liberty of the Christian who, washed in the blood of Christ, is liberated from the slavery of sin. To be truly liberated one must be a Christian because while being an American citizen is to enjoy earthly liberty, being saved enables one to enjoy the eternal liberty found in being a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven.
