Many historians today claim that America was founded by Deists, not Christians, and that George Washington was among that number. Unfortunately for them, Washington was a prolific writer, and kept meticulous records of his own correspondence. The French Revolution was partially inspired by what had just occurred in America. But there was one thing missing in France, that was a key element of making the United States different: the place of religion in public life.
Many scholars claim George Washington was a Deist, but their claims are destroyed by Washington s own words and actions, which paint a very different picture of his view of God. Dr. Peter Lillback spent approximately 15 years researching the question of our First President s religious beliefs, and you ll hear what he found when you join us.
