Rights or Wrong?
In 1776, the Founding Fathers appealed to “self-evident” truths to justify the American Revolution. Those truths form the ideal that serves as the foundation upon which these United States are built. But are those truths indeed true?
To find out, examine the public speeches, published documents, and personal writings of two dozen of America’s Founding Fathers and dig into the works of the philosophers of their time to uncover the Founders’ inspiration. Then compare their ideas to the Holy Scriptures, considering more than 700 verses from over 40 books of the Bible. Go beyond traditional assumptions and surface-level theology to carefully weigh the evidence.
Are the RIGHTS enumerated in the Declaration of Independence biblical, or were America’s Founders WRONG? And what does it mean for Christians in America some two and a half centuries later?
