1. America’s Founders: Mentors for Children – Stories transfer our values and culture to succeeding generations. America’s stories bring to life the founding of a new government in a new world. Men, women and children, known and unknown, showcase the virtues of integrity, courage, perseverance and leadership. Bible scriptures clarify the virtues and three questions follow each story to apply lessons learned to the viewer.
2. What Changed America? – America’s powerful culture, envy of the western world, is based on a government dedicated to liberty and self-rule among equals who live Christian principles. Over time, America’s greatness has declined, influenced by movements ancient and modern. These changes and the forces that produced them are identified in 6 areas: Education, Liberty, Justice, Prosperity, Peace and the Constitution, itself.
3. Humanism: Attack On Freedom – Humanism—the “religion” where man worships himself, rather than God—is sweeping America and the world. This belief system, with its changeable morals, rejection of traditional right and wrong, denial of accountability to God and dismissal of an afterlife stands in direct contrast to Christianity. The effects of humanism on education, science, government and culture are outlined, as is humanism’s goal of one world government. Evolution, the Godless theory of life’s beginning, is examined, including statements from leading evolutionists that explode their own theories.
4. Which Way America? – Key concepts that underlie the US Constitution are identified: the importance of unchanging law, division of power and checks and balances; economic basics and our current economic instability resulting from abandoning the gold and silver standard; the importance of the original electoral college and its steadying influence on American elections, and more.
5. A More Perfect Union – Full-length professional movie re-enacting the Constitution Convention of 1787, done for the US Bicentennial in 1987. The ineptitude of government under the Articles of Confederation formed the backdrop for the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. The conflicting forces that threatened to unravel, but ultimately gave richness to, America’s grand creation of liberty are powerfully portrayed. Historically accurate settings, character portrayals and content offer an exciting and satisfying step back into America’s rich national heritage to validate our Constitution
