The Day of Independence

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

Independence!

Independence Hall 1776
"Before God, I believe the hour has come. … All that I have, and all that I am, and all that I hope in this life, I am now ready here to stake upon it. And I leave off as I began, that live or die, survive or perish, I am for the Declaration. It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment. Independence now, and Independence for ever!" 
John Adams, July 1, 1776

"Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved."
Lee Resolution, presented by Richard Henry Lee of the Virginia 
Adopted by the Continental Congress, July 2nd, 1776

 

This act of the Congress legally separated the American Colonies from Great Britain, and thus formed the birth of the American nation as a collection of sovereign states, independent of a foreign power.

 

John Adams wrote his wife Abigail on July 3 about the resolution of independence:
 
"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
 

"Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof"
Leviticus 25:10

An Inconvenient Tax

 
Albert Einstein once wrote, "The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax." The product of 95 years' worth of additions, subtractions, deductions, and exclusions, it has become such a headache that many are calling for it to be drastically simplified or even removed all together. With a looming fiscal crisis on the horizon, April 15th seems more like a scene from a B-Horror horror movie than a day to contribute to the common good of the nation. Political favoritism, ineffective social programs, and economic manipulations all reveal the need for tax reform. But how can Americans decide the best way to change the income tax when few people even understand the code or the vast extent to which it truly affects the country?

"An Inconvenient Tax" explores the history of the income tax and brings to light the causes of its many complexities. The film follows the tax through wars, economic booms, and some of the most significant presidencies in U.S. history. To help crack the code, the film employs the country’s top economic experts, commentators, and political voices. Noam Chomsky, Steve Forbes, Joseph Thorndike, Mike Huckabee, Charles Rossotti, Dave M. Walker, Neal Boortz, Michael Graetz, Daniel Shaviro, Leonard Burman, Herman Cain and others discuss not only the problems America faces in the tax code, but also give valuable insights on how to move forward. Finally, the film gives a voice to the creators of several potential tax reform solutions who claim to have found a better way. In a time when many Americans are concerned about the future of the economy, rising deficits, and unfair tax treatment, "An Inconvenient Tax" provides a crucial, honest look at the income tax. For the first time ever, Americans can engage in the tax debate with confidence and perhaps discover a new way to tax.

Gather the Family is Now Available – Part of the new Freedom Family Six Pack

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

It's Finally Here!

Gather the Family Family Worship DVD

Gather the Family is the newest release from Franklin Springs Family Media, and finally provides on video a coverage of the important topic of family worship.

Gather the Family screenshot - Family Worship

Gather the Family celebrates the “invitation to joy” that’s at the heart of family worship. Modern busy lifestyles conspire against families taking the time to gather together. But Gather the Family visits families across the country who are enjoying the benefits that abound when families take even a few minutes to worship God together during the week.

Gather the Family screenshot - father leading family worship

Far from a burden or drudgery, this film reveals the joy that emerges when family worship becomes a priority in the home.  Family worship holds the lasting value of building biblical truths in the foundation of a family. The experience also forges family unity in a uniquely rewarding way.

Much more than just a “how-to” instructional guide, Gather the Family inspires and encourages families to accept the “invitation to joy” that’s offered when they gather for family worship.

Why We Fight – Memorial Day Special

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

 

Freedom Film Distributors is excited to announce a new product fitting for this Memorial Day weekend: Frank Capra's masterpiece series on World War II called Why We Fight.

Why We Fight

Why We Fight is an incredible overview of the events leading up to America's involvement in World War II. Master filmmaker, Frank Capra, was commissioned by the US Army to produce this documentary series to show the soldiers what they were fighting for – and what evils they were fighting against. With nearly seven hours of actual footage from WWII, Why We Fight adds a new dimension to the study of history – a dimension that books and photos cannot match.
 
Allied leaders
 
Capra gives viewers a greater understanding of the issues, battles, heroes, and villains of WWII as told from America's perspective. The films in this series are as compelling as any war movie, but the battle-weary soldiers and civilians are not actors. The explosions and ensuing destruction are not the product of Hollywood special effects – they're real.
 
Far from perfect, Why We Fight stumbles over ideas like religious pluralism and FDR's New Deal. It's proof that history is not neutral – the bias of the teacher (in this case, Capra) shows through. As such, viewers will have their worldviews sharpened if they keep their minds engaged. Our hope with this series is that viewers will learn from the past so they can emulate the triumphs of past generations and avoid their mistakes.

Nationwide Premier of Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger Starts Tonight

Friday, April 29th, 2011

 

Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger

Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger is premiering nationwide starting tonight through National Movie Night.

The exciting new action film Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger, produced by the Persevero Films, will be premiered nationwide April 29 – May 1st, through National Movie Night, a project of Freedom Film Distributors. The Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger trailer video recently won Second-Place in the Drama TV Showcase Competition at the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention at the end of February.  National Movie Night is designed to harness the energy of fans of independently produced films by giving them a way to host movie nights in their communities. Freedom Film Distributors will also promote and distribute the film nationwide through its grassroots network of distributors.

Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger is a pilot for a proposed episodic Christian action-thriller series for network broadcast, internet streaming, and DVD. As a pilot this episode is intended to serve as a concept for a series that, if approved by studios and networks for full-budget production, would expand. The pilot’s story itself would likely be extended and incorporated into the larger story of the entire 13-episode series.
 

 
When the individualistic, cynical soldier-for-hire Jimmy Valiant (Brant Harris) is recruited to protect an idealistic Texas state senator, the two are forced to work together to unravel a conspiracy that forces Jimmy to face a dilemma between his own lust for vengeance and his family's convictions about justice. After a tragedy in the family business, an anonymous client recruits Jimmy to shadow a controversial Texas State Senator. Jimmy must overcome his myopia as he initiates an investigation that uncovers some startling truths, and brings him face-to-face with the last man in the world that he ever wanted to meet again. Jimmy soon finds himself caught up in a conspiracy that threatens to undermine everything that he has come to trust.

Get your copy of Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger today! There are a very limited number left of the special edition produced for the National Movie Night premier that include special features on the making of the film.

Providence in our Foremost Founding Father George Washington

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

 

George Washington addresses the Constitutional Convention

 

George Washington, Father of his Country, is 279 years old today!

In celebration of the birthday of the Father of our Country, Freedom Film Distributors is offering A More Perfect Union for a special price 2 for $22 (a savings of 42%), but only until midnight ET February 23rd.  Get one for yourself and give one to a friend! See the bottom of this blog post for more info on how to get this special offer.

George Washington was raised a Christian gentleman, primarily by his older brother Lawrence and his mother, his father having died when he was young. He memorized the Rules of Civility and the 110 Rules for Young Gentlemen by heart, and practiced them all of his life.  The first of the 110 Rules for Young Gentlemen describe Washington's lifelong deportment well: "Let all actions performed in public show some sign of respectful sentiment to the entire company."  His virtuous conduct and example would provided a much needed standard for the new nation in many ways.

George Washington 1772 Virginia militia uniform

His brother's death in 1752 led to his promotion to Major in the Virginia militia and assumption of command (from his brother) of parts of western Virginia. He put his skills as a surveyor to good use, surveying most of the western part of Virginia and what is today West Virginia. His heroism in battle on the frontier, especially at the Battle of Fort Du Quesne, where he providentially cheated death numerous times and organized the successful retreat of the British force after General Braddock was mortally wounded, led to his promotion to Commander in Chief of the Virginia Military Forces in 1755 at the age of 23. After serving three years in that post, he served until 1775 in the Virginia House of Burgesses, when he was unanimously chosen to serve as Commander in Chief of the Continental Army.

General George Washington 1777

When the Declaration of Independence was read to his men on July 9, 1776, he ordered chaplains placed in each regiment and proclaimed "The General hopes and trusts, that every officer and man, will endeavor so to live, and act, as becomes a Christian Soldier, defending the dearest Rights and Liberties of his country." The hardships due to inadequate supplies and funding, and repeated defeats against the largest expeditionary force fielded in the 18th Century were demoralizing, but Washington's character and sacrifice kept the Army together.  God's Providence in the retreat from Long Island and in countless other instances, led Washington to observe after the war that "The man must be bad indeed who can look upon the events of the American Revolution without feeling the warmest gratitude towards the great Author of the Universe whose divine interposition was so frequently manifested on our behalf."  This not only included protection from destruction during defeat in battle and surviving the brutal winter at Valley Forge, but unexpected victory in battles such as the Battle of Trenton and Battle of Princeton, which turned the tide of the war, at least in terms of the spirit of the colonists.

Washington crosses the Delaware

After the war, he lead quietly as the unanimously elected President of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, seldom speaking, but always a strong presence that helped to resolve key issues in the formation of the federal republic.

 Washington presides over signing of Constitution

As the first and only unanimously elected President of the United States, he established key precedents for the role and scope of presidential action, including the precedent of only serving 2 terms.  At his inaugural address, April 30, 1789, he established the tradition of taking the oath of office with a hand on the Bible.  It was there that Washington proclaimed:

"It would be peculiarly improper to omit, in this first official act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe…No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of Providential agency."

George Washington Taking Oath of Office as President

George Washington's greatness of exemplified in his lifelong exercise and demonstration of timeless virtues.  Contemporary biographer David Ramsay wrote:

"There are few men of any kind, and still fewer the world calls great, who have not some of their virtues eclipsed by corresponding vices. But this was not the case of Gen. Washington. He had religion without austerity, dignity without pride, modesty without diffidence, courage without rashness, politeness without affectation, affability without familiarity. His private character, as well as his public one, will bear the strictest scrutiny. He was punctual in all his engagements; upright and honest in his dealings; temperate in his enjoyments; liberal and hospitable to an eminent degree; a lover of order; systematical and methodical in all his arrangements. He was the friend of morality and religion; steadily attended on public worship; encouraged and strengthened the hands of the clergy. In all his public acts, he made the most respectful mention of Providence; and, in a word, carried the spirit of piety with him both in his private life and public administration."  David Ramsay, Life of George Washington, 1807

Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee (father of General Robert E. Lee) was chosen to give the eulogy for George Washington in 1799, where he uttered his famous words:

"First in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen, he was second to none in the humble and endearing scenes of private life. Pious, just, humane, temperate and sincere—uniform, dignified and commanding—his example was as edifying to all around him as were the effects of that example lasting. . . . Correct throughout, vice shuddered in his presence and virtue always felt his fostering hand. The purity of his private character gave effulgence to his public virtues." 

Indeed, leader around the world heralded Washington as a man for the ages, a singularly conspicuous example of virtue to be emulated throughout the ages, which is why it is such an honor to be an American and to have a Founding Father such as he.  The Duke of Wellington succintly described the greatness of George Washington:

"The purest and noblest character of modern time – possibly of all time."
