"DP Original" - spent hours working on it.

"Not a 'DP Original"

Listen, thanks for the info but a "DP Original" means something you wrote, specifically for the community here. It does not mean a link to Politico, or some other outside source that was written by someone else. Thanks for your understanding."

I just had a sermon, "All Mankind by Nature under Sin", written by one of the more important founding fathers because he organized a great deal of the Revolution behind the scenes, called "not a DP Original" despite working several hours on it. And I posted it specifically for the community on here.

Maybe it wasn't obvious, but the link is to my own account which is also MaxK on scribed. This sermon took a lot of work to put up since the online scans are bad or automated with numerous errors in it. Although I haven't copyrighted it, a lot of publishers copyright the work they put into re-editing and re-publishing old works - a derivative work.

"It may perhaps, on a slight view, appear to be superfluous. ‘All mankind,' some will say, ‘are ready to acknowledge that they are sinners; and there is great reason to believe they are sincere in this confession.' But,". And goes on to explain why what some think seems obvious may not be very obvious at all.

The sermon also has everything to do with freedom if you read it, because freedom begins with yourself and not being in bondage to sin. It's exactly how the founding fathers always started - not with government, but their own lives before God. And they asked God for His help - and He helped them.

FYI - thanks for listening. MOST of the stuff I post is DP Original Articles, and usually quite long and things I wrote myself. This is the FIRST article I ever tried putting DP Original on. It doesn't seem worth it as it does nothing.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
