THE FIRST FREEDOM

Jan 16th, 2018 | By
William Murray speaking at the site of the drafting of the Virginia Act Establishing Religious Freedom in 1777.

All liberty, known more popularly as freedom today, is born in the heart of God. The forces of evil are always ready to steal our liberty and our hope away from us.
