David Barton’s Theocratic Mission
On Friday, Focus on the Family posted a short interview with David Barton in which Barton explains that his mission in life is to explain American history from a “Providential perspective,” which means explaining that every aspect of life functions best when it is in accord with biblical principles:
The Bible clearly teaches that the way people view their own history affects the way they behave. God wants us to know our history and learn its lessons. At WallBuilders, we present American history, and we do so with a Providential perspective. In short, history not only shows God’s workings and plans but it also demonstrates the effectiveness of biblical principles when applied to church, education, government, economics, family, entertainment, military or any other aspect of life.
I have to say that this is a rather startling admission from Barton, who normally tries to couch his pseudo-history as part of a mission to present “America's forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which America was built.” But now we finally have it straight from the horse’s mouth that his real goal is to ensure that biblical principles guide education, government, economics, family, entertainment, military, and every other aspect of American life.
