Two Reasons for Not Celebrating the Fourth of July

1) Revolution is not a God-given self-evident inalienable right, especially for Christians.

2) It is an example of a missed opportunity for the Christians in the U.K. to stand up against the injustices occurring in the American Colonies. If William Wilberforce could devote his life to freeing the slaves, then why not for better treatment of the Colonists?

A note of irony: John Wesley, whose Methodist movement was one of the most influential Christian movements in the history of America, was against the American Revolution.
