Huh...I never knew what the Star Spangled Banner actually MEANT. Seeing what Francis Scott Key had to go through really gave me something to think about when I sang that song. So many people risked and sacrificed their lives for our freedom. We don’t really notice how much freedom we have.
Francis Scott Key took his experiences, and gave a the country an anthem that talked about American Christians keep Ong the flag standing. We should’ve stayed proud of this but...
we, as Americans haven’t really stuck to our Christian background, but we as an American church should help point the country towards God, but we don’t. Pastor Bert did say that we, even himself, haven’t helped spread the gospel even though we hear in a message we have to. Don’t only listen but do the word. We definitely need help from God in this.
When I first saw this, I was just mind blown! I've never actually realized what and why we sing!
