What Connor Boyack Discovered With 'America's History 1215-1776'
"Left. We're talking to Connor boyack, who is the author of this book. So what is your sense of American history today? As you go through these ideas and you say, what did you discover in a sense, even though you knew a lot of this before? But what did you discover? I think I rediscovered what we've discussed in that is God's hand and the Providence that a lot of the founding fathers recognize this miracle in a lot of ways for the circumstances. I think what had faded for me in years past was the appreciation for how remarkable in the true sense of the word that all of these events where you get used to it. You just, it is what it is. And frankly, let's go set off fireworks and have our barbecue. But when you really is when you see these people going through a can you see someone like Thomas Jefferson, who yes had slaves yet at the same time was bemoaning slavery and trying to figure out ways to move away from it, right? He was a thinker way ahead of his time. We don't appreciate enough the ingenuity and the amazing educated enlightenment of the people who helped form this nation. So what I hope the gift that we're trying to provide families with this book is to say you can appreciate that too. You can understand these ideas and more importantly, they can be empowering to your life today. It's one thing to just read history and say, oh, that was interesting, right? No, we want to empower you to make a better world today, and that's what our goal is with our
'America's History: 1215-1776' With Author Connor Boyack
"Folks, welcome back. Have you heard of the tuttle twins? Well, now you have, in case you hadn't, and there's a new book out celebrating American independence brand new book called America's history 1215 to 1776. Did you get that? 1215 to 1776. Connor, boyack, the author is kind of what you just shared about how the centuries leading up to 1776. It's impossible if you're a genuine free thinker, not to see what looks like God's Providence. I mean, the idea that there's this continent that there are these problems in Europe that lead people to get on boats that if you centuries earlier, they weren't able to do this, but now they're able to sail across the Atlantic and to form these free societies and to kind of experiment with the idea of freedom. They're too far away for king George or others to bother them, so they have the freedom to mess up, to figure it out, whatever. All of that really seems providential. It's kind of amazing that this was able to happen so that as the decades pass, they begin to get the idea, hey, hey, we think we know how to govern ourselves. We think maybe it's possible we could govern ourselves. What do you say? I mean, it really is almost funny to me how it happened. I think that's right. The circumstances were extremely unique. I also see God's hand in it. And it's why I'm especially concerned about the state of the school system and history education today to have this birth rate, this blessing that's been given to us. And if we are just kind of discarding that or dismissing it or ignoring it, if we're not teaching kids these powerful ideas to appreciate them to understand them to defend them when they're being attacked, then what are we doing? We're trading away the birthright from Massa pottage and here we are in modern America where people don't even understand these ideas. And so for me, as I survey the landscape and I see how far I think we've fallen, how far things have been dumbed down for kids today. To me, it's a red flag. It's a warning. It's shouting from the rooftops to say penance. You need to understand things have gotten bad. They're talking about all kinds of stupid stuff in the schools. We have to take our own initiative and the problem, Eric, that I've experienced over the years of doing the tuttle twins. Is that a lot of these parents who like me are products of the public school from years past, they feel inadequate in their own understanding. They feel like, well, how do I talk to my kids about something I never really learned that well, or what I can do. And so that's why what we're trying to do is to say, hey, mom, hey, dad, no worries. You're going to learn together with your kids. Just read these books. They're fun stories. You'll talk about them. You all learn

The Danger in Removing God From America
"I want to read to you the proclamation. Of president George Washington. In 1789 on October 3rd this is how he proclaimed that a national holiday. By the president of the United States of America, proclamation. Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of almighty God. Now do you notice the beginning here be realize. You realize how saturated our origins are, with religion. By religion I don't only mean, of course, Christianity, the specific, expression, or as we correctly note today, in terms of values judeo Christian, in terms of religion, Christian. Values judeo Christian, religion, Christianity, God, the God of Israel. That is the God at this that this society was founded worshiping. If you remove God from the origins, if you removed no, not from the origins you can't accept the few actually distort history, which has been known to happen in your college classroom. But without distorting a history. If you would want to remove God from the the essence of America, you are in fact changing. You are in fact changing. The country, it would be as if you were to remove democracy. Does anybody argue that we should not have the vote in this country? Nobody argues that. To remove God from the from the equation of what is American. Is not a matter of I was going to say in my opinion, and I often say those words, but in reality it is a structurally. Dangerous as structurally dishonest to the structure of America, as if you would remove the vote.

"Originally the eye of providence was drummer. Oh please do. A christian symbol and the earliest examples of its use can be found in religious art of the renaissance period to represent god. An early example is a pontormo. 's fifteen twenty five supper at a mouse. Although the symbol itself was painted on later perhaps in the sixteen hundreds so in the sixteen. Hundreds this Eye of providence was added to a christian painting. But if it's evil than wiser not a christian painting let's find out it was invented. As a sign of god's compassionate watchfulness over humanity another key source of the icon was in a book of emblems called the phonology published. I in fifteen ninety three in later editions. The eye of providence was included as an attribute to the personification of providence. I e god's benevolence as the name of the symbol and it's early usage suggest it was invented as a sign of god's compassion watchfulness over humanity. So at least initially that. I that you're saying so evil that evil eye. The show very evil was actually a christian symbol. Isn't that erotic. Isn't it ironic. How people insult themselves. I think so because a lot of conspiracy theorists christian. It's not a small portion. Nobody's certain who originally invented it but whoever did crafted it out of a set of previously existing religious motifs and you will always find that in religious studies by the way when you study religion. You'll see that the symbolic of religion is really just an accumulation of prior symbols symbols. That's all they're not evil. They're just little pictures anyway.

We should be walking in producing these fruit, but when we need strength, we find that strength from God himself, so if you are weak, he is strong, and he is willing to strengthen you by the power of his might. Now we try to strengthen ourselves by the power of our, might we? We try to strengthen ourselves for another debate about whether or not we should wear a mask in public. We strengthen ourselves and we have these debates on whether these statues should come down or not. We have strengthened ourselves, and we have another debate and argument about. Chaz and and chop or whatever they're called. We have these debates about mayor, lightfoot, and De Blasio and Coamo and all of these things, and we find that power within ourselves, but eventually we find us that power is gone, and we find ourselves week again so if we would stop trying to rescue power from within ourselves and pull it from somewhere and stop worrying about the next debate, and we just rest in Christ and allow God to strengthen us by his wisdom by his strength. Strength by his power, and we would focus on preaching and Proclaiming The Gospel of Jesus Christ in our conversations. These things we'll find ourselves a little list. beat down by the world because listen all of these things that are happening can and will beat you down, but when we start to rest in Christ and walk in a manner worthy of our calling, and we produce the fruit of the spirit, and we allow God in his wisdom, and strengthen might to strengthen us when we're week. We'll find our conversations even taking on a whole different light now with that being said. Is it okay to talk about the current events absolutely. Is it okay to have an opinion about the current events? Absolutely, but here's something that I found myself. Doing is I would much rather fight and argue about whether or not to wear a mask about these mayors about these governors. And just leaving it at that however everything that we say every time that we bring an argument or something, we should somehow bring this all back to the gospel of Jesus. Christ we should bring it back to the word, because if we're just standing up fighting and fighting and fighting and fighting and fighting than we're not showing the love of Christ and again. Let me just say this too, is I. Don't believe in a care bear theology. I don't believe in being a care bear Christian I. believe that love and truth go together. Yes, we should love one another. We should be gentle. We should be kind, but we should not forsake. Truth..

Well, when we finished up the providence season, we were looking around for a new city to do obviously. And there were a lot of cities on the long list, but very quickly we settled on Detroit. And I think that's because there are a variety of reasons. One is that it felt different enough from providence. You know, it wasn't going to be a mob story the way providence was it was going to be about, you know, different kinds of organized crime in different kinds of political corruption. And at the same time. I mean, I think part of the reason that of you describe it Detroit so attractive to journalists is because it's kind of a microcosm of the country at large. You know, a lot of the issues that people around the country are now talking about constantly hit Detroit much earlier. So she's like the industrialization in the war on drugs, and the devastation of the drug trade, and, you know, urban decline and racial tension and police brutality. We very quickly kind of stumbled across all these great stories that hit on these really big Redmond teams. And it just felt like Detroit was was the obvious choice to go. And of course, it's not Newark. So that's always a plus. Yeah. A little farther from home. So should should we be honored to have been selected as den of iniquity? Well, I mean, I think the jury's still out. I hope people feel like, you know, we're welcome to their town anytime after the here the entire podcast. But you know, I think the name is not lost on us in in. Sometimes, you know, crime town people feel like it's a disparaging term, but I think that, you know, for us, it's the exploration of the culture of crime and corruption and looking at the history of that. And as drew, you know, put it, so well, I think we're looking at you know, sort of socioeconomic strata in in trying to make sense of that within the context of crime, which I think makes it really fascinating and gives a kind of a a historical bent that that gives it some I think wait important so in resonates. Today. So I think that's kind of what we set out to do. And hopefully other people think we were doing a pretty good job. Well, the episodes I've listened to our very compelling, and they're actually have been quite a few of them. You're up to episode eleven that's available through Spotify. If you if you have that app are there other ways that people can get the podcast at this point. Not at this point. It's going to be exclusive to Spotify for a period. And then after that period, it will be generally available at all podcast platforms. Okay. And Spotify is free, folks. So I I don't think you have to pay anything to listen to this which your business model seems to be worse than ours. But you're you're making it work. We're going to have to save that for another discussion. But, but John you, and I spent several hours talking about this crazy town, I'm wondering after the time you've spent here, what are some of the things that that struck you the most about Detroit. I don't know I've been going back and forth between New York City in Detroit since two thousand seven and I got a chance to see a change. You know, when I first got there, the Cass corridor was much different than it looks. Now. I think they call it. Mid town. And you know, there's a lot of loss, and, you know, independent business owners and cafes and that kind of thing. And so I've enjoyed seeing that change. But, but you know, for me, Detroit just has a lot. So as you know, I mean, it's Motown, you know, it's it's the car industry. You know, it's, you know, just think plainspoken working class folks, who, you know, just a really I've always embraced me. What I'm there as a reporter as a guest, and and I think. That's that's what I I mean continued to experience since doing this work on on crime town season to and met some real characters if you've been listening. It's it's it's just been a lot of fun to to meet folks where they stand in. And and have them tell their story Jim Shaffer. Piece of work. I don't know about him. Yes. We are known as the friendliest little big city in America. If we don't shoot you had an ATM or carjack you so those are caveats, but still I want to emphasize the friendly part, very friendly. I mean sake the city of brotherly love in in Philadelphia except the brothers are, you know, Cain and Abel but still brotherly love. It's biblical. What could be wrong with that? My guest this morning, our June Alice and John White of the crime town podcast. We're gonna take a quick break. We'll come back get you caught up on what they've told us so far and where the story is going, but I w air traffic.
