Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States has sold more than 2.5 million copies. It is pushed by Hollywood celebrities, defended by university professors who know better, and assigned in high school and college classrooms to teach students that American history is nothing more than a litany of oppression, slavery, and exploitation.
Zinn’s history is popular, but it is also massively wrong. Today, our guest will unpack the dangerous ideas of a man that turned a generation against America.
Born and raised in a small town in Kansas, our guest was called to be in the ministry. But when he lost his mother to cancer despite her unwavering faith that God would heal her, it planted seeds of doubt in his heart. He served as a traveling evangelist for years but later faded away from the ministry. He and his wife lost their house in a fire, but a year later, far worse pain was ahead when they, lost their twelve-year-old son in an ATV accident. Just when it seemed there was hope and recovery ahead, Rick was blindsided by a federal investigation into a mortgage consulting group he’d been involved with. He was eventually charged and then sentenced to over a year in prison, embarrassed and sure that God was done with him this time. But God wasn’t finished. Join us to hear the rest of the story.
Do you desire an authentic relationship with Christ but struggle with the question of hardship? Suffering can be trying, but it is a vital component of authenticity. When you experience pain, your first reaction might be, "Please, God! Take it away!" But looking beyond the immediate, what should your first reaction be? In their book The Fellowship of the Suffering, Paul Borthwick and Dave Ripper state that pain doesn't need to have dominion over you. Learn how you can live an authentic Christian life and engage with this world's hardship appropriately.
