Declaration of Dependence - Acts 17:28
As Americans we are afflicted with a poisonous vice. That vice is made far more dangerous by the fact that we believe our vice to be a virtue. The vice in questions is an excessive independence. We even have a day on which to celebrate it. But independence cannot be universal, in the way most Americans think, because as the Apostle Paul told the Athenians on Mars Hill, we are utterly dependent upon our Creator and Redeemer.
