Faith of our Founding Fathers

Political polarization and questions about the trustworthiness of government, have been around since the time of the Founding Fathers. But Wheaton College History Professor Robert Tracy Mckenzie says they subscribed to the biblical principle that humans are fallen, and wrote the US Constitution to frame a republic intended to handle our weaknesses. He sits down with Ed Stetzer to talk about what the Fathers would say to us today.
