LISTEN NOW! John, Pat and Steve have an encouraging conversation as they revisit the foundations of America and the original foundations that made it strong. John shares how he had recently met a man from the nation of Sri Lanka and this man expressed his love for the nation of America and what it stands for. It’s important that we don’t forget what makes the nation of America great.
The founding fathers of America understood their only ability to stand was by the God who gave them their rights. In his book, “Rediscovering God in America”, Newt Gingrich, takes a journey through the monuments of Washington D.C., the nation’s capital, and details the significance of what each stand for. The continual thread that you find through each of these is the presence and declaration of God. From the Declaration of Independence, to the acceptance speech of the first President, George Washington, God has been recognized and His presence acknowledged. As God is currently being taken out of every platform and our nation is allowing it. It’s time to take a stand for God and proclaim His name, His truths, and His values. No longer should we say, “God Bless America”; it’s time for us to say America will Bless God! If we want politicians in leadership like our first President, we must first be those people. Before we proclaim the Ten Commandments to be put upon the walls of courtrooms, they first must be upon the walls of our heart. Enjoy this refreshing moment of our nation’s heritage and so much more. Also shared in this segment: David Barton, Wallbuilders, Newt Gingrich, Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence, George Washington, 10 Commandments, Philadelphia, Sri Lanka, and original intent.
