A Conversation with Tim Barton: Is America still a Christian Nation?
November 18, 2021 | Megan West | |
To know what truth is, we must know history. And someone who has a robust view of history is Tim Barton, President of Wallbuilders, an organization dedicated to presenting America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which America was built – a foundation which, in recent years, has been seriously attacked and undermined.
In this jam-packed 20-minute history lesson, we talk about everything from Thanksgiving, the controversial 1619 project, navigating the truth about America’s past, and the undeniable role faith has played throughout our nation’s history.
Did you know that by 1815, there were more than fourteen hundred official government prayer proclamations on record from presidents, governors, and Congress? What is very clear is that America was influenced by the impact of the Bible.
“I think unquestionably we are still influenced by the foundation of Christianity upon which our nation was built. And even today, I think there's a lot of people who don't recognize part of that foundation. One of the things that the Founding Fathers talked about was that Christianity challenged us to be benevolent. By following the principles of Christianity, the better that nation will succeed on every level. And so what I would say is America is not as godly as we need to be, but the better job we do of following the Bible and getting back to what the Founding Fathers really tried to implant with those biblical principles, the better off our nation would be.” -Tim Barton
