What happens when Americans of the USA reject the freedom that the Declaration of Independance offers? It may be similar to what Jews rejected when they refused to follow the teachings found in Christ - freedom.
Interestingly, people come to understanding when they listen to the author of freedom. People, who become free, grow in that freedom and become more than mere followers but; rather, leaders. Leaders who understand where true freedom comes from truly are followers of the One who gives freedom - Jesus. If you give up on freedom and refuse to follow the thing that makes you free; then, you are not free.
