We certainly see a lot of examples of how this country is going in the wrong direction, but perhaps the most important trend isn't getting much attention. Joining us today for a sobering conversation is Steve Cable (probe.org), Senior Vice President of Probe Ministries. His studies show that in the last decade the number of Christians who successfully answered doctrinal questions about Christianity fell from 50% to just 25%. In other words, only a quarter of people who claim to be born again Christian answered correctly all 4 questions about what it means to be a born again Christian. For a country built on Judeo-Christian values, this is an alarming indication of what the future may hold for America.
We hold these truths to be self-evident… Familiar words from our nation's Declaration. Dr. Paul Seaton (stmarys.edu), Professor of Philosophy at St. Mary's Seminary and University, joins us today to compare the 'we' from the Declaration's time to today's 'we.' There used to be a shared belief in the foundational principles of this country, even if you ideologically disagreed on other issues. No such commonality exists today. But the progressive's long march through the institutions has sped up recently and people are beginning to wake up and fight back. One way they're fighting back is with new institutions that uphold our foundations and teach the truth.
