  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:32.220
  • IMPORTANT CONVERSATION MATT AND LAURIE CROUCH
  • 00:03:32.240 --> 00:03:34.220
  • HAD A WHILE BACK RIGHT IN THIS VERY SPOT, A
  • 00:03:34.240 --> 00:03:37.120
  • CONVERSATION WITH NOTED AUTHOR AND HISTORIAN
  • 00:03:37.140 --> 00:03:40.040
  • DAVID BARTON, FOUNDER OF WALL BUILDERS.
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:44.090
  • - MATT CROUCH: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO SEE TODAY ON
  • 00:03:44.110 --> 00:03:46.040
  • THIS PROGRAM?
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:47.240
  • - DAVID BARTON: WHAT WE'LL DO IS KIND OF SEE
  • 00:03:47.260 --> 00:03:49.290
  • HOW THAT BUILDING CAME TO BE AND WHAT IT ITSELF
  • 00:03:50.010 --> 00:03:52.010
  • FOUNDATION IS.
  • 00:03:52.030 --> 00:03:53.100
  • THAT'S A 70 YEAR STRUCTURE BACK THERE.
  • 00:03:53.120 --> 00:03:54.190
  • SO THAT'S NOT SOMETHING THEY JUST START
  • 00:03:54.210 --> 00:03:55.150
  • AND FINISHED.
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:56.250
  • THAT WAS A LOT OF STEPS ALONG THE WAY AND A LOT
  • 00:03:56.270 --> 00:03:58.090
  • OF CULTURAL THINGS THAT GO WITH IT.
  • 00:03:58.110 --> 00:04:02.070
  • THERE'S A LOT -FOR EXAMPLE, NOBODY REALLY
  • 00:04:02.090 --> 00:04:04.120
  • KNOWS THAT THE GUY WHOSE REALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR
  • 00:04:04.140 --> 00:04:07.020
  • SURVEYING THAT WAS A BLACK GUY NAMED BENJAMIN
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:10.000
  • BANIKER WHO WASN'T A SLAVE.
  • 00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:11.250
  • WE'RE TOLD THE CAPITOL BUILT BY SLAVE LABOR.
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:14.010
  • YEAH, SOME BUT THERE'S A WHOLE LOT OF FREE BLACKS.
  • 00:04:14.030 --> 00:04:17.110
  • BENJAMIN, WHAT A COOL GUY HE WAS, CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:04:17.130 --> 00:04:19.090
  • LEARNED TO READ OUT OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:04:19.110 --> 00:04:21.170
  • - WHY DON'T YOU START WITH A NARRATIVE PIECE.
  • 00:04:21.190 --> 00:04:23.200
  • WALK US THROUGH IT A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:04:23.220 --> 00:04:25.040
  • LET'S HEAR THE STORY OF WHAT WE'RE DOING.
  • 00:04:25.060 --> 00:04:27.230
  • - THERE'S REALLY 2 PARALLEL STORIES THAT GO
  • 00:04:27.250 --> 00:04:29.170
  • BECAUSE THE PERIOD OF TIME WHEN IT STARTED IT
  • 00:04:29.190 --> 00:04:30.130
  • WAS A TINY BUILDING.
  • 00:04:30.150 --> 00:04:32.260
  • IF I POINTED OUT TO YOU THE ORIGINAL CAPITOL
  • 00:04:32.280 --> 00:04:34.270
  • BEHIND US, IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S KIND OF BETWEEN
  • 00:04:34.290 --> 00:04:37.180
  • TWO COLUMNS.
  • 00:04:37.200 --> 00:04:39.030
  • IT IS A TINY SEGMENT OF THAT BUILDING, SO THE
  • 00:04:39.050 --> 00:04:41.180
  • FOUNDING FATHERS NEVER INTENDED THE FEDERAL
  • 00:04:41.200 --> 00:04:43.230
  • GOVERNMENT TO BE THAT BIG OF A DEAL.
  • 00:04:43.250 --> 00:04:45.110
  • THERE WAS GOING TO BE STATE AND
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:46.190
  • LOCAL GOVERNMENTS.
  • 00:04:46.210 --> 00:04:48.030
  • THE CONSTITUTION ONLY LET'S THE FEDERAL
  • 00:04:48.050 --> 00:04:49.200
  • GOVERNMENT DO 15 THINGS, BUT NOBODY READS IT
  • 00:04:49.220 --> 00:04:51.140
  • ANYMORE SO WE DO 15.000 THINGS.
  • 00:04:51.160 --> 00:04:53.050
  • BUT IT'S A TINY LITTLE BUILDING, AND THEY
  • 00:04:53.070 --> 00:04:55.230
  • WEREN'T SURE THEY WERE GOING TO GET TOGETHER ALL
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:58.050
  • THAT OFTEN, SO THE CONSTITUTION SAYS HEY
  • 00:04:58.070 --> 00:04:59.250
  • GUYS, YOU GOT TO GET TOGETHER AT LEAST ONE TIME
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:01.170
  • A YEAR.
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:02.290
  • NOW WE WISHED WE COULD GET THEM OUT OF TOWN ONCE
  • 00:05:03.010 --> 00:05:05.000
  • A YEAR, BUT THEN IT WAS -- SO THAT'S THE CLIMATE IN
  • 00:05:05.020 --> 00:05:06.290
  • WHICH IT STARTS.
  • 00:05:07.010 --> 00:05:08.220
  • BUT WITH THAT CLIMATE THEY DON'T THINK GOD
  • 00:05:08.240 --> 00:05:11.130
  • SHOULD BE SEPARATED FROM ANYTHING, AND SO THEY GET
  • 00:05:11.150 --> 00:05:14.070
  • THE FIRST CAPITOL BUILT AND THOMAS JEFFERSON IS
  • 00:05:14.090 --> 00:05:17.000
  • OVER THE SENATE AND THEODORE SEDGEWICK IS
  • 00:05:17.020 --> 00:05:19.270
  • OVER THE HOUSE AND THEY GET IT BUILT AND SAY HEY
  • 00:05:19.290 --> 00:05:22.090
  • GUYS, WE GOT A GREAT BUILDING HERE.
  • 00:05:22.110 --> 00:05:23.290
  • LET'S MAKE SURE WE HAVE CHURCH IN HERE
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:25.140
  • EVERY SUNDAY.
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:27.010
  • SO THEY START OUT WITH CHURCH BEING EVERY SUNDAY
  • 00:05:27.030 --> 00:05:29.140
  • IN THE HALL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
  • 00:05:29.160 --> 00:05:31.240
  • PREACHERS CAME IN AND PREACHED.
  • 00:05:31.260 --> 00:05:33.280
  • THOMAS JEFFERSON WENT TO CHURCH THERE FOR 8 YEARS
  • 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:35.180
  • AS PRESIDENT.
  • 00:05:35.200 --> 00:05:36.280
  • YOU HAD JAMES MAD SON WENT TO CHURCH THERE FOR
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:39.070
  • 8 YEARS AS PRESIDENT.
  • 00:05:39.090 --> 00:05:41.010
  • NOBODY THINKS OF THAT AS BEING A CHURCH, BUT IN
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:45.220
  • 1857 THAT BUILDING WAS THE LARGEST PROTESTANT
  • 00:05:45.240 --> 00:05:47.080
  • CHURCH IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:05:47.100 --> 00:05:48.170
  • - SO ARE WE JUST EXPERIENCING REVISIONISM?
  • 00:05:48.190 --> 00:05:52.230
  • I MEAN BECAUSE WE HAVE NATIONAL VOICES ON TODAY
  • 00:05:52.250 --> 00:05:57.230
  • PROCLAIMING THE CHURCH AND STATE AND CHURCH
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:06:01.240
  • CAN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH STATE AND IT'S
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:04.020
  • AGAINST THE LAW TO SAY THAT YOU'RE FOR THIS
  • 00:06:04.040 --> 00:06:07.080
  • CANDIDATE OR NOT.
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:09.060
  • AND THEY ARE JUST SPOUTING THIS STUFF THAT
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:11.100
  • IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE.
  • 00:06:11.120 --> 00:06:13.140
  • AND WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:06:13.160 --> 00:06:16.020
  • THESE ARE LEARNED PEOPLE THAT ARE SAYING THIS KIND
  • 00:06:16.040 --> 00:06:19.040
  • OF STUFF?
  • 00:06:19.060 --> 00:06:21.000
  • - WELL, WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:06:21.020 --> 00:06:22.240
  • A PROCESS.
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:24.130
  • YEAH, WE'VE GOT REVISIONISM BUT THAT'S
  • 00:06:24.150 --> 00:06:25.260
  • BEEN GOING FOR A WHILE.
  • 00:06:25.280 --> 00:06:27.110
  • AND IT ONLY WORKS IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TRUTH IS.
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:29.200
  • - THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:31.120
  • EXPLAIN KIND OF TO THE VIEWERS WHAT WAS GOING ON
  • 00:06:31.140 --> 00:06:33.180
  • AT THAT PERIOD OF TIME WHEN A LOT OF CHRISTIAN
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:35.240
  • SYMBOLISM APPEARED IN OUR US CAPITOL.
  • 00:06:35.260 --> 00:06:38.130
  • - YOU KNOW, THERE WAS A LOT OF CHRISTIAN
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:40.170
  • SYMBOLISM THAT WAS THERE, FOR EXAMPLE THE
  • 00:06:40.190 --> 00:06:43.260
  • MASSIVE PAINTINGS INSIDE OF CAPITOL.
  • 00:06:43.280 --> 00:06:46.170
  • THE RECORDS OF CONGRESS SAY THEY WERE TO CAPTURE
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:49.050
  • AND RECORD THE CHRISTIAN HERITAGE OF THE NATION.
  • 00:06:49.070 --> 00:06:51.210
  • AND THAT'S IN THE 1830'S AND 40'S, ET CETERA.
  • 00:06:51.230 --> 00:06:54.220
  • SO THEY PUT THOSE IN THERE.
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:57.010
  • THEY STARTED INSTALLING THEM, MASSIVE ONES.
  • 00:06:57.030 --> 00:06:58.270
  • THE PILGRIMS THAT ARE GATHERED AROUND THE
  • 00:06:58.290 --> 00:07:01.000
  • BIBLE, I THINK 1841, ROBERT WE'RE INSTALLED
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:03.030
  • THAT THERE.
  • 00:07:03.050 --> 00:07:05.020
  • IT WAS TO REALLY MAKE SURE VISUALLY WE KEEP
  • 00:07:05.040 --> 00:07:08.020
  • REMEMBERING WHO WE ARE AS A PEOPLE, WHO WE ARE
  • 00:07:08.040 --> 00:07:10.220
  • AS A NATION.
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:12.150
  • AND AS THE STATUES WOULD COME IN AND BE ADDED, SO
  • 00:07:12.170 --> 00:07:15.140
  • MANY CHRISTIANS STATESMEN IN THOSE STATUES AND
  • 00:07:15.160 --> 00:07:18.150
  • CHRISTIAN MINISTERS IN THOSE STATUES.
  • 00:07:18.170 --> 00:07:20.240
  • THERE WAS SO MUCH THAT WAS PRESERVED, AND SO IT
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:24.220
  • WAS JUST A CONSTANT REMINDER THIS IS WHO WE
  • 00:07:24.240 --> 00:07:26.260
  • ARE AS A PEOPLE.
  • 00:07:26.280 --> 00:07:28.180
  • THIS IS WHO WE ARE.
  • 00:07:28.200 --> 00:07:30.000
  • THIS IS WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:31.110
  • THIS IS WHAT WE BELIEVE.
  • 00:07:31.130 --> 00:07:33.020
  • THIS IS WHAT MADE US GREAT.
  • 00:07:33.040 --> 00:07:34.220
  • IT'S THE HAND OF GOD.
  • 00:07:34.240 --> 00:07:36.200
  • WE DIDN'T DO THIS OF OUR OWN THING.
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:38.190
  • THIS IS A GOD THING.
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:40.110
  • AND THAT WAS A CONSTANT REMINDER ALL THE
  • 00:07:40.130 --> 00:07:41.250
  • WAY THROUGH.
  • 00:07:41.270 --> 00:07:43.110
  • AND THEN WE STARTED ACTUALLY CHANGING TRUTH,
  • 00:07:43.130 --> 00:07:45.050
  • AND THAT'S REALLY WHAT LED TO THE CIVIL WAR.
  • 00:07:45.070 --> 00:07:46.290
  • YEAH, WE KNOW THE TRUTH IS THAT ALL MEN ARE
  • 00:07:47.010 --> 00:07:48.200
  • CREATED EQUAL, BUT WE REALLY DON'T THINK THAT
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:50.100
  • APPLIES IN THIS CASE BECAUSE CERTAIN MEN
  • 00:07:50.120 --> 00:07:52.100
  • REALLY AREN'T CREATED EQUAL, SO WE STARTED
  • 00:07:52.120 --> 00:07:54.150
  • TAKING GOD'S TRUTH AND REALIGNING TO WHAT WE
  • 00:07:54.170 --> 00:07:56.220
  • PERSONALLY BELIEVED.
  • 00:07:56.240 --> 00:07:59.070
  • - JUST DO THE BRIEFEST, THE PHRASE CHURCH
  • 00:07:59.090 --> 00:08:01.240
  • AND STATE.
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:03.200
  • - SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.
  • 00:08:03.220 --> 00:08:05.270
  • - SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.
  • 00:08:05.290 --> 00:08:07.160
  • JUST GIVE US A LITTLE BIT OF THAT LESSON.
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:10.070
  • - THOMAS JEFFERSON WHEN HE WAS PRESIDENT YOU'VE
  • 00:08:10.090 --> 00:08:13.000
  • HAD ALL THESE COLONIES THAT WERE BRITISH RUN
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:16.080
  • THAT HAD BRITISH CHURCHES -IN VIRGINIA WHERE
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:18.230
  • JEFFERSON LIVED, IT WAS THE BRITISH ANGLICAN
  • 00:08:18.250 --> 00:08:21.010
  • CHURCH THAT KILLED QUAKERS BECAUSE THEY
  • 00:08:21.030 --> 00:08:23.070
  • WEREN'T IN THE RIGHT DENOMINATION.
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:24.270
  • THEY THREW BAPTISTS IN PRISON.
  • 00:08:24.290 --> 00:08:26.180
  • THEY THREW METHODISTS IN PRISON, THEY THREW
  • 00:08:26.200 --> 00:08:28.160
  • PRESBYTERIANS IN PRISON BECAUSE THEY
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:30.130
  • WEREN'T ANGLICANS.
  • 00:08:30.150 --> 00:08:32.090
  • AND JEFFERSON WENT TO COURT TO DEFEND THESE
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:33.270
  • GUYS, SAID NO, NO, NO, WE'RE ALL CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:08:33.290 --> 00:08:35.010
  • WE DON'T DO THIS STIFF, AND THEY DID IT.
  • 00:08:35.030 --> 00:08:37.100
  • SO WHEN JEFFERSON BECOMES PRESIDENT, BAPTISTS ALL
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:39.070
  • OVER AMERICA SAID OUR GUY IS THERE.
  • 00:08:39.090 --> 00:08:40.260
  • HE UNDERSTANDS.
  • 00:08:40.280 --> 00:08:42.070
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET THROWN IN JAIL, AND OUT
  • 00:08:42.090 --> 00:08:44.020
  • OF CONNECTICUT THEY WROTE HIM A LETTER SAID MAN,
  • 00:08:44.040 --> 00:08:46.100
  • WE'RE REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:08:46.120 --> 00:08:48.130
  • AND JEFFERSON SAID DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:08:48.150 --> 00:08:50.120
  • WE HAVE A SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, AND
  • 00:08:50.140 --> 00:08:53.040
  • THAT SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE IS THE FIRST
  • 00:08:53.060 --> 00:08:54.290
  • AMENDMENT, AND IT'S GOING TO KEEP THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:08:55.010 --> 00:08:56.160
  • FROM INTERFERING WITH YOUR RELIGIOUS
  • 00:08:56.180 --> 00:08:58.110
  • EXPRESSIONS, SO IT'S NOT TO SECULARIZE.
  • 00:08:58.130 --> 00:09:01.170
  • IT'S TO KEEP THE GOVERNMENT FROM SAYING
  • 00:09:01.190 --> 00:09:03.080
  • KID, YOU CAN'T SAY GOD IS GREAT.
  • 00:09:03.100 --> 00:09:04.220
  • I CAN TOO.
  • 00:09:04.240 --> 00:09:06.040
  • SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.
  • 00:09:06.060 --> 00:09:07.130
  • - GOD IS NOT GOING TO SKIP THE CHURCH HOUSE TO
  • 00:09:07.150 --> 00:09:09.230
  • CHANGE THE WHITE HOUSE.
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:11.220
  • SO HE'S WAITING FOR HIS PEOPLE TO INVITE HIM BACK
  • 00:09:11.240 --> 00:09:13.050
  • IN SO HE CAN BE COMFORTABLE AGAIN AND AT
  • 00:09:13.070 --> 00:09:15.000
  • HOME IN A NATION THAT HE HELPED START.
  • 00:09:15.020 --> 00:09:19.070

  • DELIBERATELY ERASED FROM OUR HISTORY BOOKS.
  • 00:09:32.000 --> 00:09:34.080
  • IT'S WRONG, AND AS BELIEVERS WE MUST NOT

  • OUR CHILDREN AND OUR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN.
  • 00:09:39.290 --> 00:09:42.230

  • 00:14:24.170 --> 00:14:29.050
  • YOUR PROBLEM." WE GOT THE WRONG KINGS, WRONG FORCE,
  • 00:14:29.070 --> 00:14:31.120
  • WRONG SOURCE THAT WE'RE DEPENDING ON TODAY?
  • 00:14:31.140 --> 00:14:34.110
  • - WELL, THIS IS TAKEN FROM II CHRONICLES 15:3-6.
  • 00:14:34.130 --> 00:14:36.220
  • IN THOSE DAYS, THERE WAS NO TRUE GOD, NO TEACHING
  • 00:14:36.240 --> 00:14:41.100
  • PRIESTS, NO LAW.
  • 00:14:41.120 --> 00:14:43.060
  • THERE WAS HIGH CRIME THAT SAYS NATION ROSE UP
  • 00:14:43.080 --> 00:14:44.230
  • AGAINST NATION AND CITY ROSE UP AGAINST CITY, AND
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:46.160
  • THEN IT SAYS FOR GOD TROUBLED THEM WITH EVERY
  • 00:14:46.180 --> 00:14:48.220
  • KIND OF DISTRESS.
  • 00:14:48.240 --> 00:14:50.050
  • IS GOD IS YOUR PROBLEM, ONLY GOD IS YOUR SOLUTION.
  • 00:14:50.070 --> 00:14:52.190
  • IT SAYS GOD WAS THE PROBLEM, NOT THE DEVIL,
  • 00:14:52.210 --> 00:14:54.210
  • BUT BECAUSE GOD HAD BEEN DISMANTLED FROM THE
  • 00:14:54.230 --> 00:14:56.150
  • CULTURE, THE CULTURE DETERIORATED.
  • 00:14:56.170 --> 00:14:59.040
  • WHAT WE'RE EXPERIENCING TODAY IS WHAT I CALL THE
  • 00:14:59.060 --> 00:15:01.240
  • PASSIVE WRATH OF GOD.
  • 00:15:01.260 --> 00:15:03.290
  • THE ACTIVE WRATH OF GOD IS WHEN FIRE AND
  • 00:15:04.010 --> 00:15:06.170
  • BRIMSTONE FALL DOWN.
  • 00:15:06.190 --> 00:15:08.160
  • THE PASSIVE WRATH OF GOD IS WHEN HE LET'S YOU
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:10.290
  • ENDURE THE CONSEQUENCE OF YOU LEAVING HIM OUT.
  • 00:15:11.010 --> 00:15:12.270
  • SO SINCE GOD HAS BEEN LEFT OUT, WE'RE DEALING
  • 00:15:13.000 --> 00:15:15.080
  • WITH THE REPERCUSSIONS OF HIS DISMISSAL.
  • 00:15:15.100 --> 00:15:17.110
  • SO WE NEED THE RETURN OF THE KING, NOT PSEUDO
  • 00:15:17.130 --> 00:15:20.260
  • KING, IN ORDER TO GET THIS THING TURNED AROUND.
  • 00:15:20.280 --> 00:15:23.220
  • WE HAVE TO TAKE GOD OFF OF THE MARGINS AND BRING
  • 00:15:23.240 --> 00:15:26.240
  • HIM BACK DOWNTOWN WHERE THE DECISIONS ARE MADE.
  • 00:15:26.260 --> 00:15:29.080
  • WE'RE TAKING A THREE-POINT PLAN AROUND
  • 00:15:29.100 --> 00:15:31.060
  • ALL OVER THE NATION THROUGH OUR NATIONAL
  • 00:15:31.080 --> 00:15:33.030
  • MINISTRY, THE URBAN ALTERNATIVE.
  • 00:15:33.050 --> 00:15:35.040
  • PLAN ONE, CHURCHES COME TOGETHER IN AN AREA AND
  • 00:15:35.060 --> 00:15:38.070
  • ESTABLISH AN ANNUAL SOLEMN ASSEMBLY,
  • 00:15:38.090 --> 00:15:40.020
  • A SACRED GATHERING.
  • 00:15:40.040 --> 00:15:42.070
  • THAT SACRED GATHERING THROUGHOUT SCRIPTURE AND
  • 00:15:42.090 --> 00:15:44.020
  • CHURCH HISTORY WAS AN INVITATION FOR GOD TO
  • 00:15:44.040 --> 00:15:46.090
  • RETURN HIS PRESENCE THAT THE MIDST OF HIS PEOPLE
  • 00:15:46.110 --> 00:15:48.270
  • AND OVERFLOW INTO THE BROADER CULTURE.
  • 00:15:48.290 --> 00:15:50.200
  • PART TWO, GOOD WORK.
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:52.180
  • THAT IS WHERE YOU DO THINGS THAT BENEFIT
  • 00:15:52.200 --> 00:15:55.230
  • THE SOCIETY IN WHICH YOU LIVE.
  • 00:15:55.250 --> 00:15:57.150
  • OUR FOCUS IS ON ADOPTING SCHOOLS.
  • 00:15:57.170 --> 00:15:59.150
  • IF EVERY PUBLIC SCHOOL GETS ADOPTED BY A CHURCH
  • 00:15:59.170 --> 00:16:02.060
  • OR A GROUP OF CHURCH ACROSS RACIAL LINE --
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:04.140
  • SAY THAT YOU HAVE RECONCILIATION THROUGH
  • 00:16:04.160 --> 00:16:06.280
  • SERVICE, AND NOT THROUGH SEMINARS -- THEN YOU
  • 00:16:07.000 --> 00:16:09.020
  • PROVIDE FATHERS TO THE FATHERLESS, MENTORING,
  • 00:16:09.040 --> 00:16:10.250
  • TUTORING, FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES.
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:12.180
  • AND NOBODY DISAGREES WITH THE EDUCATION,
  • 00:16:12.200 --> 00:16:14.030
  • KIDs OR FAMILIES.
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:16.040
  • CHURCH, SCHOOL AND FAMILIES MAKE UP EVERY
  • 00:16:16.060 --> 00:16:17.290
  • COMMUNITY, SO YOU NOW HAVE A GOOD WORKS COMING
  • 00:16:18.010 --> 00:16:19.250
  • OUT OF A SOLEMN ASSEMBLY.
  • 00:16:19.270 --> 00:16:22.110
  • POINT THREE, NOW YOU HAVE A COMMON VOICE.
  • 00:16:22.130 --> 00:16:23.270

  • BECAUSE OF THE RETURN OF GOD AND

  • THE SOLEMN ASSEMBLY.
  • 00:16:36.040 --> 00:16:37.170
  • YOU DO THAT IN EVERY COMMUNITY, YOU JUST
  • 00:16:37.190 --> 00:16:39.130
  • TOUCHED THE WHOLE NATION WITHOUT ANYBODY MOVING
  • 00:16:39.150 --> 00:16:41.110

  • - SO AMERICA'S HIDDEN HISTORY IS REALLY A
  • 00:20:27.030 --> 00:20:29.020
  • KICKBACK TO THE BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY THAT
  • 00:20:29.040 --> 00:20:32.110
  • USED TO EXCITE EVERYONE, AND WHAT WE'RE DOING IS
  • 00:20:32.130 --> 00:20:34.230
  • BRINGING OUT MANY THINGS THAT WE JUST DON'T
  • 00:20:34.250 --> 00:20:36.200
  • HEAR ABOUT ANYMORE.
  • 00:20:36.220 --> 00:20:38.160
  • AND PART OF THAT IS BECAUSE WHEN YOU LOOK AT

  • HISTORY, YOU REALLY TO SEE RIGHTS AND WRONG.
  • 00:20:40.130 --> 00:20:42.120
  • THERE ARE THINGS THAT WORK AND THINGS

  • YOU BELIEVE, THAT'S YOURS.
  • 00:20:47.030 --> 00:20:48.180
  • THAT'S JUST NOT WHAT HISTORY TEACHES US.
  • 00:20:48.200 --> 00:20:50.100
  • SO WE HAVE A LOT OF FUN WITH AMERICA'S HIDDEN
  • 00:20:50.120 --> 00:20:51.280
  • HISTORY BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT SOME
  • 00:20:52.000 --> 00:20:53.190
  • GREAT HEROES, A LOT OF THINGS THAT WE CAN LEARN
  • 00:20:53.210 --> 00:20:56.050
  • FROM THEIR LIVES, A LOT OF INSPIRATION THEY GIVE US.
  • 00:20:56.070 --> 00:20:58.050

  • 00:20:58.070 --> 00:21:00.150

  • 00:21:24.200 --> 00:21:26.200
  • WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE TODAY, WE JUST DON'T
  • 00:21:26.220 --> 00:21:28.160
  • REALLY KNOW WHAT WE WERE IN THE PAST.
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:30.130
  • AND A LOT OF TIME, IT'S MISPORTRAYED, SO TBN HAD
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:32.250
  • THE VISION OF LET'S BRING TRUTH BACK TO PEOPLE IN A
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:35.060
  • WAY THAT THEY HAVEN'T SEEN IT.
  • 00:21:35.080 --> 00:21:38.030
  • THAT WAS A GREAT STEP OF BOLDNESS ON THEIRS TO
  • 00:21:38.050 --> 00:21:39.290
  • KIND OF MOVE IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION
  • 00:21:40.010 --> 00:21:41.190
  • BECAUSE THIS IS THE FIRST PROGRAM TBN'S HAD LIKE
  • 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:43.100
  • THIS THAT REALLY FOCUSES ON HISTORY.
  • 00:21:43.120 --> 00:21:45.100
  • BUT CERTAINLY THE RESPONSE HAS BEEN SUCH
  • 00:21:45.120 --> 00:21:47.080
  • THAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING GOOD MOVE, MATT AND LAURIE.
  • 00:21:47.100 --> 00:21:50.030

  • 00:23:11.000 --> 00:23:13.230
  • WRITINGS OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS.
  • 00:23:13.250 --> 00:23:15.170

  • THAT'S WHAT THE FOUNDER'S BIBLE IS.

  • TO LIVE IN A NATION FOUNDED ON LIBERTY AND

  • THE PURSUIT OF FREEDOM.
  • 00:24:13.090 --> 00:24:15.030
  • ONE OF THE GREATEST PRIVILEGES IS THE FREEDOM
  • 00:24:15.050 --> 00:24:17.160
  • TO WORSHIP GOD AS WE CHOOSE AND FOR BELIEVERS
  • 00:24:17.180 --> 00:24:20.250
  • TO ALSO BE ABLE TO SHARE THE GOSPEL OF
  • 00:24:20.270 --> 00:24:22.280
  • JESUS AND HIS LOVE.
  • 00:24:23.000 --> 00:24:24.270
  • IT'S A FREEDOM WE ENJOY AND EXPECT TO HAVE AS
  • 00:24:24.290 --> 00:24:27.180
  • BELIEVERS, BUT ONE WE NOW SEE INCREASINGLY ATTACKED
  • 00:24:27.200 --> 00:24:32.150
  • BY SECULAR CULTURE THAT NOT ONLY ASSAULTS
  • 00:24:32.170 --> 00:24:35.220
  • BIBLICAL STANDARD, BUT DENIES THEM AND ACTUALLY
  • 00:24:35.240 --> 00:24:38.080
  • CALL TRUTH A LIE.
  • 00:24:38.100 --> 00:24:41.230
  • THE FACT IS FAITH AND FREEDOM HAVE BEEN A PART
  • 00:24:41.250 --> 00:24:45.010
  • OF OUR NATION'S HISTORY FROM THE VERY BEGINNING,
  • 00:24:45.030 --> 00:24:47.210
  • AND OUR PAST IS FILLED WITH MANY WONDERFUL
  • 00:24:47.230 --> 00:24:50.100
  • STORIES OF SACRIFICE, OF HEROES WHO LAID THEIR
  • 00:24:50.120 --> 00:24:52.240
  • LIVES ON THE LINE FOR FREEDOM, OF MEN AND WOMEN
  • 00:24:52.260 --> 00:24:56.190
  • WHO HAD FAITH IN GOD AND ASKED HIS BLESSINGS ON
  • 00:24:56.210 --> 00:24:59.050
  • THEIR EVERY ENDEAVOR.
  • 00:24:59.070 --> 00:25:01.070
  • SADLY, MANY OF THOSE ACCOUNTS HAVE BEEN
  • 00:25:01.090 --> 00:25:04.030
  • DELIBERATELY ERASED FROM OUR HISTORY BOOKS, AND
  • 00:25:04.050 --> 00:25:06.140
  • THAT IS INDEED A TRAGEDY.
  • 00:25:06.160 --> 00:25:08.240
  • ONE OF THE ACTIONS WE CAN TAKE IN OUR FAMILIES, AND
  • 00:25:08.260 --> 00:25:11.120
  • I BELIEVE WE MUST, IS TO REVEAL THE TRUTH ABOUT
  • 00:25:11.140 --> 00:25:14.100
  • AMERICA'S HISTORY CONCERNING THE IMPACT OF FAITH.
  • 00:25:14.120 --> 00:25:17.130
