DECLARATION OF DEPENDENCE


Today I make this day my Dependence Day by making this declaration;

Declaration of Dependence


"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for an individual to dissolve the sinful bond which has connected them to a sinful ruler; they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.


We hold this truth to be self-evident, that all men are created equal in sin, that through grace, they have been endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Abundant Life, Liberty in Christ, and the Pursuit of Peace beyond understanding. --- that to secure these rights, our Savior died and rose again-- so that we would no longer walk the path of destruction.


We can no longer tolerate a cruel task maker who has been declared the Prince of this World. He has gone about like a roaring lion causing havoc in our lives, robbing us our life, liberty, and peace.


So it is on this day that we declare our total Dependence on God, The Father; God, The Son; and God, The Holy Spirit. And let it be known that no longer are we held in bondage but are now a free people."



Declared by Larry Turner on July 1st, 2012
