It’s hard to stand up for truth if you don’t know it. Jesus understood this when He countered the deceptive wiles of the devil (see Matt. 4:1–11). The only way to dispel a lie is with the truth. However, truth alone is not enough. Jesus understood this too. He said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32, New King James Version, emphasis added). It’s the truth you know that will always bring freedom. In our culture today, you don’t have to look far to find a toxic narrative that seeks to deceive and divide America. Therefore, because truth isn’t well-circulated, many Christians are ill-equipped to restore godliness to our country. However, when Christians are armed with the truth, they can stand and bring freedom to those around them!
For over ten years, Andrew has dedicated a number of Gospel Truth programs to interviewing David Barton, who is described as America’s historian and whose organisation, Wall Builders, has fought to restore truth and righteousness in America. Back in 2009, Andrew and David talked about the Christian foundation and history of our country. In 2013, they teamed up again to discuss the historical importance of Thanksgiving, one of our biggest holidays. Finally, in celebration of Black History Month this year, David and his son Tim appeared on Andrew’s show to share how black people have shaped and preserved America to be a Christian nation. These powerful sessions have been packaged together for you in an updated God and Country series. You’ll be informed and inspired when you learn how God’s hand has historically been at work in America. Find out the truth so you can begin making a difference in your circle of influence!
