Description

You learned in Course 401: As a Country Thinks, So It Is, that every nation has an underlying philosophy that is based on a particular worldview.  That being the case, what worldview is the United States of America based on?  Historically, the answer was easy: America is founded on the principles of Judeo-Christian religion.  But in modern times, Christianity's influence is being rejected if not outright denied.  Was America really founded on Christian principles?  Were the founding fathers devout followers of Jesus, or agnostic philosophers of the enlightenment?  To answer these questions, we must trace the principles of American government back to their source.

Who is the target audience?
  • Those Interested in Understanding the Foundations of the United States
  • Those Interested in History, Politics, and Religion
  • Anyone Wanting to Understand the Proper Relationship Between Religion and Politics
