62 - Os Guinness on America’s Cultural Revolution and the Privatization of Christianity
Show Notes

In his latest book, Zero Hour America, Os Guinness deals with the urgency of our time. From IVPress - “Revolution? Oligarchy? Or homecoming? Americans are approaching a "zero hour" for the republic and its distinctive view of ordered freedom. America is caught between two revolutions and alternately suppresses and squanders freedom with a prodigal carelessness, with little understanding of the responsibilities that freedom requires.

Os Guinness warns that if America abandons its distinctive ideals and ideas, we will have carved into the chronicles of history yet another example of the failure of a free society. Like other crucial times in world history, the present crisis is a "civilizational moment" and also a pivot point that could lead to national renewal. Outlining seven key foundation stones of freedom, Guinness lays out a pathway for defining and ordering freedom, righting national wrongs, and passing freedom's baton from generation to generation.

Human freedom is precious and rare, and citizens who prize it must do what it takes to renew and sustain societies that are free for all of their members. America's window of opportunity is brief, and the alternative to renewal is bleak. The present moment must not be missed.”

We dive into the topics of freedom, cultural marxism, revolution, the sexual revolution, Christian nationalism, and how Christians can remain faithful today. We explore the differences between the American and French Revolution and how the freedom pursued in America has been explicitly biblical.
