This is the actual ink and pen set that the 56 men used to sign their name to a document proclaiming freedom to live their lives not subject to a king. I found just the fact it was there to be a moving experience. What they must have been thinking as they signed what was a pledge that would cost most of them dearly. Yet it was only a temporal fix to the issue that plagues people and we now live under far more rules and vastly higher taxes than those that spawned the American Revolution. So when we look at the Christian Scriptures and read about the yearning for freedom it was both temporal and spiritual but only one will endure.
“He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.” I Timothy 2:6 NLT
