Will most of you guys be celebrating on the 4th of July? As a Brit my perception of the war of Independence comes from American movies and tv and it's always been portrayed as the best thing that ever happened to the world. But when I heard the reasons behind it I was very confused as to how an American Christian justified it at the time and celebrates it today. I say this because from what I've heard the main reasons behind it seem to have been tax. If you are celebrating, could you offer your own personal Biblical justification? If you are not, the same goes. And please no arguments that in effect say the end justifies the means.
