"Once Upon A Time"....


...Christians were free to worship God in France. Even if they were not agreed with, they were at least tolerated. The Huguenots of France were some of the most Godly people to walk the earth. They raised their sons to be men of valor and their daughters to be virtuous women. The Huguenot legacy is truly heroic. But France began to fall further from obeying the Law of God and these French protestants came under a period of severe persecution, during which, many fled to the American colonies. France drove these Godly people away and soon experienced the judgment of God.

On this day in 1789, complete anarchy reigned in France as the people revolted, in a most unbiblical manner, against the tyrannical government of Louis XVI. What is now known as Bastille Day, began the French Revolution. The French Revolution is an excellent example of a nation trying to find freedom without God.

France has suffered from the effects of the Huguenot persecution ever since then. They have become one of the most liberal, God-forsaken, countries in the world. They may struggle in vain for freedom and happiness, but, as many Americans, they don't understand that true freedom is found through submission to God, and the authority he has placed over us.
