Independence Day

Today, America celebrates her independence from England. It was a time long foretold by the prophets, a day when a land where the restoration of the Fullness of the Everlasting Gospel would be restored to the earth.

This land is a choice land, and God has ordained it to be a free land if we serve Him (Ether 2:12). If we do not serve Him, we shall be swept off, for such is the decrees of the Everlasting God.

While we remember our freedoms, and our liberties, let us not forget the source of our Freedom: the King of America: Jesus the Christ. Because of His Atonement, we are free forever. Without Him, we would be held captive, and bondage would abound. While we celebrate our freedom and independence from England, let us also celebrate our freedom and independence from the Destroyer and our complete dependence on our God.
