"Franklin himself interestingly enough in the constitutional convention in talking about the requirements for members of Congress. What does he do? He cites X's 1821. That's jethro's advice to Moses on the kinds of leaders that he should gather around them to help govern the children of Israel. And he's speaking of this language that speaks, you need to look for men, able men who fear God who love truth and the part that Franklin quotes is that hate covetousness, right? So he's tells us, by the way, in this speech, he's citing the scripture in making an argument for a particular kind of political leader that we should aspire to in this new constitutional republic. Well, it's music to my ears. But it comes with pain because it's all being rejected today. Maybe you should give a course. If you don't know the Bible, you may turn out an idiot. How many people will enroll? Well, we should try it. Which in fact I'll tell you what, bring me in to give one of the lectures. I have no doubt that you'll do better than I can. No, no, no, that's very sweet of you. I don't think so at all. That's very kind. I know you're might be police, however. I thought I would acknowledge. The service you are rendering with this work you're doing is unparalleled. And I'm so happy I have you on, and we're going to continue. Because I'm going to ask you the $64,000 question. Don't answer it now. But when we come back, was it founded to be a Bible based or Christian country, which term would you use? Back in a moment, Daniel dries back is the professor at American university. And I'm great amen, I have really come to admire and adore professor Daniel's rice back of American university, the phenomenal research, the amount of reading he has done is intimidating actually. On the biblical origins of the country in the citations of the founders, for example. So as I said, the $64,000 question, or for you, Sheik el question, since your biblical based is, what would you say is the more correct statement and I don't know what you'll answer that the founders wanted this to be a Christian country or a Bible based country. Yeah, I think that's a good question. And this is not the first time you might want to ask this question American history because if we look at the experience of the pilgrims and the Puritans, they were motivated by a desire to create Bible commonwealths. That is to say, political societies in alignment with biblical principles as they understood them. So this is a question that has been of long-standing in the American experience. Now, we're going to find some founders who very explicitly speak of the influence of the hebrews and the Jews. We're going to find others who speak specifically about the Christian influence. And so if we look at the rhetoric of the time, we're going to find examples of both. But I think they would have all been agreed that it was an experiment that was influenced in part by the Bible..

"Quite a part of hold on, hold on, hold on, I want to get your reaction as soon as we return. Professor Daniel driesbach. Reading the Bible with the founding fathers, I'm Dennis prager. The Dennis prager show. We will find as long as we learn more I have to say I'm having a ball here, folks. This is actually good for my health, which is good anyway, thank God. But Daniel dries back is adding to it with a scholar confirming what I have inferred and deduced from all of my study. The country is a Bible based country. I might add, I'm not going to put words in his mouth, but that is the reason for the anti americanism that is pervasive in the country, because it's a hatred ultimately of the Bible. That's really what it's about. By the way, professor, looking, preparing to show my producer found that you and I both have a an essay in a book called the state of the American mind, 16 leading critics of the new anti intellectualism. So that's right. We're bonded in more ways than one. My essay in that volume, by the way, deals with exactly what we were talking about before the break, which is it's hard to be an educated person in western society with in western culture without some understanding of the Bible. How do you understand handel's messiah or you mentioned Moby dick or think of the great works of faulkner, for example? Absolute epsilon or think of the illusions to the New Testament in Julia ward Howe's the battle hymn of the republic. Or if you want pop culture, remember that popular folk tune of the 1960s turn turn turn. How can you be an educated person in our society without this grounding in sort of a biblical literature? And I think it disconnects us in some really profound and dangerous ways that we're losing that knowledge that understanding of that biblical connection. Well, well, don't stop me. The purpose is not any way to produce educated people. It's to produce indoctrinated people. So it's not an argument that will even resonate with Americans. Well, you really won't be well educated. So what? If it's not the aim, it's not a threat. I would push this, by the way, even further and say, I think it's difficult to understand our constitutional experiment. Our experiment in self government and liberty under law without some understanding of the Bible. The constitution is premised on a political anthropology that was informed by the Bible. And the framers often said that, right? They understood what happened in genesis chapter three, the fall. And so they designed a government that was practically obsessed with the separation of powers and checks and balances because they knew that humans vested with power could not be trusted. And so the basic design and content of our constitutional system, I think, reflects a biblical understanding of human nature..

"Spanish has done a service Daniel dry back. The ACH. That's Bach with a dry before it. He's a professor in American university. And he's done the most systematic survey of what the founder cited and lo and behold the book they cited the most was the Bible. And in the Bible, it was the Old Testament. That's why I have called America the one truly judeo Christian country in world history. It is now being overturned. And there will be there is already chaos as a result. So you were mentioning that how much the citations were and that it didn't even come. I'm adding this from people who were doctrinally Christian. Clearly, Jefferson and Franklin, among others, did not believe in the Christian Trinity, though they would have would they have said their Christian if they were asked yes, I think both would have said that they are Christian. Now, Jefferson said I am a sect of myself, right? So he is in a Christian denomination of one person. The person of Thomas Jefferson, but look, the Bible is so pervasive in the culture. I think most Americans of that age would have learned to read with a copy of the English Bible in front of them. In particular, the King James translation of the English Bible. And so when they spoke, they spoke in a language that resonated with their audience. You mentioned Jefferson and Franklin, who are no Orthodox Christians to be sure, I would add to that list Tom Payne, right? Well, I always thought that that's fascinating. I think of him as an atheist. Well, he's close. He's close. I'm not sure he would call himself an atheist. But the whole argument in common sense is based on a reading of the Old Testament. And the sin of the Jews and asking for a human king, right? First Samuel H oh, so perfect. Yes. A rejection of hereditary monarchy is at the heart of his argument. Right. But God didn't want them to have a king that God should be the king, but that's not Thomas paine's view. That God should be the ultimate king of the society. That hereditary monarchy is, is a inferior approach. And he's using this Bible. That's great. Of the Jews. But again, he speaking in a language that would have been easily understood and recognizeable by his audience, even though he himself is no Orthodox Christian..
