Celebrate the 4th of July with Video Gaming’s Finest Fireworks!
During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring the United States independent from Great Britain rule. After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it on July 4. A day earlier, John Adams had written to his wife Abigail:
The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.
Adams’s prediction was off by two days. From the outset, Americans celebrated independence on July 4, the date shown on the much-publicized Declaration of Independence, rather than on July 2, the date the resolution of independence was approved in a closed session of Congress.
Historians have long disputed whether Congress actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, even though Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Benjamin Franklin all later wrote that they had signed it on that day. Most historians have concluded that the Declaration was signed nearly a month after its adoption, on August 2, 1776, and not on July 4 as is commonly believed.
But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Every year on July 4th America remembers its freedom from British rule, but as citizens of heaven who are only incidentally American citizens, we daily have a more significant liberty to celebrate.
What freedom do citizens of heaven have to celebrate?
Freedom from bondage
Freed by Christ
Freedom is universally desired
Freed from the law of sin and death
Freed from the bondage of satisfying God’s law
Freed from the sins committed under the first covenant
Freed from our sins by his blood
Freed from accusation
Freed from the power of sin
Caution: Do not think your freedom is permission to sin
Free to approach God with confidence
Freed from spiritual blindness
Freed from the curse of a decaying body
Free to be a slave to others
Caution: Don’t let your freedom from the law lead others to violate their consciences
Freed by the law of love

PlayStation Plus has become a bit more expensive in various regions around the world, Sony has confirmed to Joystiq. “We slightly increased prices for PlayStation Plus in South Africa, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and India regions due to various market conditions.”
Will these price increases affect prices in North America? Sony responded to that very question saying, “Currently, price adjustments are not being planned for PS Plus in the SCEA [North American] region.”
Sony’s confirmation of price increases comes shortly after a report was published by iAfrica that stated PlayStation Plus subscription costs were going to increase within 24 hours of email notifications sent to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Judging by the emails sent to these various regions, prices look like they increased a little over 50% of their original cost.
Using a vague “various market conditions” statement to justify an over 50% increase in price will probably not bode well for customers within these regions. Hopefully Sony can give these customers a better understanding of why they need to spend more for their PlayStation Plus subscription as they can’t simply say they can’t pay the additional costs due to “various wallet-constricting conditions.”
PlayStation Plus subscription fees are on the rise in various regions, Sony confirmed. “We slightly increased prices for PlayStation Plus in South Africa, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and India regions due to various market conditions,” a representative told Joystiq via email. “Currently, price adjustments are not being planned for PS Plus in the SCEA [North American] region.”
The confirmation follows a report from iAfrica that stated subscription costs were due to rise within 24 hours of email notifications sent to PS Plus subscribers. The emails reportedly stated that “the price of a three month subscription will rise from R145 to R219” as of today ($12.88 and $19.46). The change represents a 51 percent increase in the three-month PS Plus prices. Additionally, a second email seemingly noted a change in the annual PS Plus costs in South Africa from R489 to R749 ($43.45 to $66.55, a 53 percent increase).
