Is the United States a Christian nation? And is that notion worth pursuing?
Some of the most common feedback I heard about season 3 of Truce is that I didn’t give the Christian America camp enough time to back their opinion. In this mini-episode, I discuss my reason for leaving people like David Barton of Wall Builders off of the show.
I also play a short clip from Gregg L. Frazer who was on our Christian America episodes. His book is “The Religious Beliefs of America’s Founders“.
Was the American Revolution biblical?
There are lots of people who argue that the United States is a Christian nation. But our nation is founded on revolution. The Bible is clear that we are to obey our leaders. How do we reconcile the fact the Revolution was not a Christian act with the assumption of a Christian nation?
Our guest this episode is Dr. Gregg L Frazer, author of The Religious Beliefs of America’s Founders: Reason, Revelation, and Revolution and God Against the Revolution: The Loyalist Clergy’s Case Against the American Revolution.
Special thanks to those who contributed their voices to this episode including Paul Hastings of the Compelled Podcast, Eric Nevins of Halfway There, Angel McCoy of Angel Reads the Bible, and Bonnie Burns from Sex Chat for Christian Wives.
