Journey to America's Past: The Impact of Faith on Our Founding Principles
Are you ready to journey into the past and explore the fascinating intersection of faith, culture, and the founding of America? Your guide will be David Barton, as we take a deep dive into the contrasting approaches to governance of the Jamestown and Plymouth. Discover how their different priorities have shaped America's values and institutions to this day.
In our quest to understand America's past, we also discuss the crucial role of religion in shaping our government and society. Did you know about the decline in Bible reading and biblical literacy in America, and its impact on our understanding of God's institutions, such as the family and government? This conversation doesn't shy away from contemporary issues either, as we touch on the societal reflection of gender identity and secularization.
Finally, we grip the alarming issue of the decline of Christianity in America and its implications for believers. As we spotlight the biblical concept of "occupying until Jesus returns," we also face the challenges of retaining Christian children in faith amidst the rise of the "Exvangelicals". We wrap up with an encouraging call to action, urging believers to stand firm and work to reverse this trend. So, join us on this enlightening journey and explore the American story.

From Education to Witch Trials: Early America and The Deep Impact of the Pilgrims and Puritans
Ever wondered how the principles instilled by the Pilgrims and Puritans have shaped America's government, economy, and education system? Prepare to embark on a historical journey as we uncover the profound impact these early settlers had on the country we know today. From a constitutional, historical, and biblical perspective, we unravel the influence they had on establishing elected government, free enterprise, and private property rights. We also highlight the agreements they made with Native Americans.
We also look at pilgrims and their significant influence on public education. We fast forward to New Jersey in the 1800's, a time when education was heavily rooted in the Bible teaching. We uncover the educational requirements of the time and the significant role that black officials played in early American education. Equipped with these insights, we gain a deeper understanding of America's rich history and the values it was built upon.
Wrapping up our journey, we examine the stark difference in the number of casualties between the European and American witch trials. We credit this to the Pilgrims' and Puritans' commitment to biblical teachings which led to the establishment of due process rights. We also look at the contrasting narratives of the founding of Jamestown and Plymouth. Be sure to tune in as we keep the flame of freedom alive and learn from our past to build a better future.
