The Influence of the Bible on America

What Role Has The Bible Played In The Formation of America?

tw_mp3_bible_study_logoWas America formed as a Christian Nation? Were those who organized our government mindful of the Bible and the Laws of God?

During a Congressional Briefing in 2008, Rob was invited to attend a conference between pastors and Congressmen regarding the Spiritual Heritage of America in Washington D.C., hosted by David Barton. One of the speakers at this conference was Senator Randy Forbes.

Senator Forbes said this:

“The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence were the greatest men the country has ever known. They understood two things:

1. Our rights came to us from our Creator.
2. These set of rights cannot be taken away by man because they came from our Creator.

There is an attack today on the first principle that our rights came from our Creator. Those today in government would have us believe that our rights come from government, not from a Creator.”

What influence did the Bible have upon the formation of America and her government?

In this 22 part series by David Barton you will learn that from the very beginning, the people who came to this land and those that framed our Constitution and Declared Independence, determined that America’s laws would come “From the Laws of nature and Nature’s God“.

[box]Understanding the formation of the United States and the manner in which the Constitution was framed, is largely unknown to a majority of Americans. This study brings the listener into the arena of facts that exist from the historical record.[/box]

David Barton is the Founder and President of WallBuilders, a national pro-family organization that presents America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on our moral, religious and constitutional heritage.

WallBuilders is a name taken from the Old Testament writings of Nehemiah, who led a grassroots movement to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore its strength and honor. In the same way, WallBuilders seeks to energize the grassroots today to become involved in strengthening their communities, states, and nation.

David is the author of numerous best-selling books, with the subjects being drawn largely from his massive library of tens of thousands of original writings from the Founding Era. He also addresses well over 400 groups each year.

His exhaustive research has rendered him an expert in historical and constitutional issues and he serves as a consultant to state and federal legislators, has participated in several cases at the Supreme Court, was involved in the development of the History/Social Studies standards for states such as Texas and California, and has helped produce history textbooks now used in schools across the nation.

A national news organization has described him as “America’s historian,” and Time Magazine called him “a hero to millions – including some powerful politicians. In fact, Time Magazine named him as one of America’s 25 most influential evangelicals.

David has received numerous national and international awards, including Who’s Who in Education, DAR’s Medal of Honor, and the George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge. His work in media has merited several Angel Awards, Telly Awards, and the Dove Foundation Seal of Approval.

David and his wife Cheryl reside in Aledo, Texas, they have three grown, married children (Damaris, Timothy, and Stephen), and three grandchildren.
