The Gadsen Flag is pretty fairly described in THIS Wikipedia entry. At church on July 4th, the Luke passage above was in the Gospel Reading and it struck me that this is where our forefathers got the phrase "Don't Tread On Me" and where they got the inspiration for the snake image and I thought I'd share that here today. Their implication is that snakes and scorpions are trying to overcome us but we have the God-given authority to trample on those snakes and scorpions.
"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is FREEDOM"
2 Corinthians 3:17 Maybe we can only have freedom anymore if we remember that we will not be trampled or tread on, and that 'nothing will harm' us in the most important, eternal way when God's with us; Gadsen probably felt it then and many of us feel this in America today..........LET FREEDOM RING!
Have a very blesssd Sunday, everyone.
