Christianity in the Colonial Era
When the first pilgrims and puritans came to the shores of Virginia and Massachusetts in the early 1600’s, they came with hope of starting new lives. Along with all of their earthly possessions, they also brought Bibles and a strong faith in Jesus Christ. As the colonies grew in size and stature they would eventually declare independence (in both word and war) from the shackles of the British Empire. Inevitably they created a brand new government and established a new system of governing that did not include a king. That happened over 240 years ago, and yet questions still haunt our minds today about how our country was established. Was the United States of America founded as a Christian country? Were documents like the Constitution and Declaration of Independence rooted in biblical thinking? Were George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and Thomas Jefferson actually Christians? Join us as we unlock the answers to these important questions and develop a right way of thinking about both God and our country.
