I seem a theme arising this week. It is partly a patriotic theme, yet there are lessons that can be extended far beyond a single nation. Indeed, perhaps some of them can be extended to all groups who organize themselves to take on issues that touch upon morality in any respect (and, is there a human enterprise that does not?).
I was listening to an old podcast “A Grateful Nation” from Focus on the Family, where guest David Barton discusses many facts about the beliefs of the forefathers of the United States that are being erased from history books all over this nation.
While I cannot find the podcast anywhere but iTunes, it is interesting to view the website of his organization, WallBuilders, and view the article “A Few Declarations of Founding Fathers and Early Statesmen on Jesus, Christianity, and the Bible”. It should give you an idea of what he’s about.
I wouldn’t go so far as to say we were once a Christian nation, but to totally ignore the fact that it was built upon Christian principles is to be dishonest about our history.
I’ll let you digest this before I continue on with what is really on my mind.
