Today, The Two Mikes hosted a marvelous and learned guest named Mark Burrell, who is the head of a Protestant Teaching Ministry.
Mr. Burrell has just published a book called “Rediscovering the American Covenant” which addresses at length, and using the Bible as a primary source document, the dire need to reeducate Americans about the central role that the Bible and Christianity played in the thinking and deliberations of American Founders. He also shows how the Founders and their colleagues used the Bible to determine if the revolutionary war was justifiable. The basically biblical basis of their decision can be read by everyone in the Declaration of Independence.
Mr. Burrell argues that the reason the Bible played such a prominent part in America’s founding is that it not only taught Americans God’s laws and their duties to their Lord, but because it also taught Americans that as citizens they had a responsibility to defend their faith as well as to defend their families, the neighbors, their neighborhoods, and their country.
In recent decades, according to Mr. Burrell, Christian churches and pastors have been “out to lunch” when it comes to teaching their congregants the absolute necessity of always behaving as responsible and accountable citizens.
Mr. Burrell has much more to say in his book, and it is well worth reading. This book is important; indeed, it is vital. Mr. Burrell’s book is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and all places where books are sold. The book is also available for sale at Mr. Barrell’s website: https://www.defendamericanliberty.com
