GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor of Free Chapel, releases the following statement in celebration of Independence Day:
“The liberty we have as Americans is truly remarkable. The courageous leaders that fought so hard to ensure the freedom we enjoy not only changed the course of history for this nation, but also blazed a trail that inspired similar movements in every corner of the globe. I’m thankful they took a stand against oppression and tyranny, many of them paying for the cause with their lives. And I’m equally thankful for the brave men and women that to this day continue to make tremendous sacrifices to defend our way of life. Take a moment today to thank God for the blessings we have been given and thank a member of the armed forces as well.
