Church historian Dr. Eddie Hyatt says secularists are working hard to sever America from its Christian roots.
"To destroy a people, you must first sever their roots," he tells Dr. Steve Greene on the "Greenelines" podcast. "There has been an all-out attempt in academia to sever America from her Christian roots, which is a great spiritual awakening in faith and prayer. [Their purpose is] to destroy that America and create another America in their own image."
But these secular revisionists overlook one of the major stimuli behind America's independence: the Great Awakening.
"I had studied the Great Awakening, but I had never thought of it in relation to the founding of America," Hyatt says. "But I saw clearly that the first Great Awakening that transformed colonial America had a direct bearing on the founding of this nation. In other words, spiritual awakening is in our national DNA."
That realization motivated Hyatt to write his book Pilgrims and Patriots, in which he urges Americans to reconnect with their prayer-bathed roots and ignite another spiritual awakening.
Although the future of the U.S. depends fully on God, Hyatt says the upcoming 2020 election has a great impact on how America will turn spiritually. Listen to the podcast to hear what must happen for revival to break out once again.
