Did you hear it? The can of worms just opened…
This topic of whether or not the United States of America was ever a Christian nation (or whether it was intended to be) has been:
- Argued, and
by people of every stripe (Christian and non-Christian).
This last week I came across an interview on Dr. Albert Mohler’s podcast – Thinking In Public. If you’ve never listened to Dr. Mohler speak, teach, or conduct an interview, you don’t know he’s potentially one of the smartest people on the planet (my opinion, but I’m in good company). And you also don’t know that he’s passionately committed to Jesus Christ and truth… whatever it may be.
This particular episode was an interview with Dr. Gregg Frazer (scroll half way down the linked page). He is Professor of History and Political Studies at The Master’s College (affiliated with Dr. John MacArthur). Dr. Frazer has written a new book entitled, “The Religious Beliefs of America’s Founders: Reason, Revelation and Revolution.” In his book, Dr. Frazer uncovers the truth on this issue regarding the beliefs of the most influential founding fathers of the United States, and shows from their own writings what they truly believed.
I encourage you to listen to the interview… and to do so prayerfully, with a heart that seeks truth rather than some personal agenda.
Was the U.S. intended to be a Christian nation?
This question is not important because it is controversial. It is important because truth matters. What you and I believe impacts how we view the world and live in it. If we Americans are assuming things about our country that are not true, then we will act in ways that are out of place – and be representing AS true what is actually false.
