Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof (Leviticus 25:10 KJV)
This inscription, on the symbol synonymous with Liberty itself for so many, is said to commemorate William Penn’s Charter of Privileges declaring for the people of Pennsylvania religious liberty and self governance.
This inscription became a rallying cry for the abolitionist movement.
Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof
This inscription and it’s symbol was also used by the suffrage movement encouraging support for women’s voting rights.
The symbol synonymous with Liberty draws its meaning from the power of the Word. Our founders understood the source of our Liberty as did so many patriots that followed.
Liberty does not come from a god-less nation. This nation was birthed in religious liberty, on the foundations of the Judeo-Christian belief that ALL are created in God’s image and ALL are given free will to choose their pursuit. Liberty comes only from God and never from government.
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (2 Corinthians 3:17 KJV)
