Posterity — you will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.
–John Quincy Adams
Nothing of any real value in this life is free; everything of value comes at a price. Even the gift of God’s grace, which is given freely to those who will believe on Him and His Son, was bought at a price – a great price. Christ paid that price for us, and now God offers the reward to whosoever will believe. And yet, many chose to reject it. Well, the same is true of our individual rights and liberty. They were bought at a price by our founders and then preserved at a price by those who came after them. Now we have freely inherited these gifts, and again we reject them.
