Sorry to hear of the passing of Willie Pelzer. Jiy will miss him. I knew them well from Sask and Ontario. But haven't seen him for years.

Loved that fourth verse, We are starting to see Christians taking a stand, Praying for God to intervene and recently saw it in our Nation.

That is wonderful Dean...thnx so much for sharing this...I remember you singing this verse at church...

Watching it certainly gave me chills all the way to my toes!

In the past 20 years, I've led this verse for singing in our church. Sadly, it's been mostly ignored. I wasn't looking for any accolades, just a hint that my church family was alive and awake. I'm afraid the church is largely asleep at the wheel, and this nation will suffer further if we don't wake up! I have no idea what flavor of Christian that veteran is, but I'd rather spend a year of Sundays with him than anywhere!

No insult intended, I'm sure he was a little taken back by the camera...but every Jarhead I know says there are only living Marines and dead ones...

You are right Cathy, they are not directly connected. ============================================== **THE FOUNDING FATHERS DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE (1776)**. When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of NATURE'S GOD entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident: THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL; THAT THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. **THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER - verse 4- (1814)**. Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation. Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: "IN GOD IS OUR TRUST." **THE PLEDGE OF ALLIGENCE (added in 1954)**. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. ============================================== However the purpose I was referring to is consistent in all 3, the reference to God, for 300 years, God was listed in every declaration, song, and pledge. Were is God today? Are we "One Nation under God". That is all I was trying to say. I never even knew this fourth verse existed...I wonder why. It seems as if everyone is trying to erase Him out of everything....this song (ALL 4 verses) should be played more often. p.s. I did notice alot more people "like" it now, so all is good. Thanks for sharing your thoughts back, have a GREAT day!

Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech _are_ what happened to posting Scripture on public buildings and compulsory group prayer in schools.

Neither the song not the Pledge have any direct connection to the Founding Fathers' purpose. The song was written in 1814, and became the National Anthem in 1931. The Pledge was written in 1892, formally adopted in 1942, but did not contain the phrase "under God" until 1954.

Tell it to the singer in the video, who introduces himself as a "former Marine".

  • 2012-07-09T22:30:41

Glory be to God! The bravery of this marine shall not go un-noticed nor his standing in vain. May God bless all who stand in agreement with this marine--- who boldly call on God's Holy Majestic Name! It is the blood that covers us and His love that will lead us through the night with a light from above!

It's important because it means the song says nothing about the Founders' intentions or thoughts regarding this country and its relation to God.
