QUESTION #1: What’s dividing our nation in this generation like we’ve never experienced before in our history?


Dave Kistler:

“I think it’s that we have removed God from the forefront of our thinking in the American psyche and American culture. God used to be that which unified us. I think that’s why in our Pledge, it says, “One nation,” and, of course, we talked about how President Eisenhower, in the days when Communism was so rampant and he wanted to insert it into the Pledge and it was, thankfully, passed by Congress and signed into law by him. We added in the words “under God, one nation under God.” That is, indeed, the truth. That’s what’s united us.

If you look at Acts 4:32, the early church, a multiplicity of different ethnic backgrounds were still united and had one heart and one soul because that which kept them united was their focus on who Jesus was, the God of the universe, and that kept them … Amidst the things that could be potentially disastrous divisions, it kept them focused and kept them centered. When we began to kick God out in 1962, ’63, removed him from our public education system, from our national attention… the downward trek has been stark, it has been significant. If we would once again unite around one God, Gary, I think we could see the gaps and the divisions in this country healed.”
