So why is America great? Why is this nation, above all other nations, the most prosperous, the most technologically advanced, the most compassionate, and the freest nation, on earth at this time in history? Consider the fact that we represent only 4.5% of the world’s population but command nearly 50% of the world’s wealth. America is the birthplace of inventions like the telegraph, the telephone, the light-bulb, the airplane, the internet, the Global Positioning System… we have freed more people from tyranny, helped more people rebuild from the ravages of war, delivered more humanitarian aid to those who are suffering than any other nation in the world. We are not a perfect nation, but America has been a force for good in the world and America is still the wonder of the world.
Why is America great? I would argue that America is great because, for the most part, those who immigrated here and those who founded our nation honored the God of the Bible. That is why America is an exceptional nation. Even with all our current problems, we are still the most generous, prosperous, free, and God-blessed people on the face of the earth! So our mission is to uncover the ample evidence for our rich spiritual heritage and the deep biblical faith of those who helped shape our nation and, under God, made America an exceptional nation.
