Make America Great Again


Regardless of your political persuasion, you cannot possibly have navigated the last two years in the US without at some point coming in contact with the phrase “Make America Great Again.”  Mercifully, the election is over.   However, I think former First Lady Barbara Bush got it right when she famously said “our success as a nation… depends not on what happens inside the White House, but on what happens inside your house.”

I can’t help but be reminded of the observations of Alexis de Toqueville, a French diplomat who visited the United States early in the 19th century and published a work called Democracy in America, an effort to help the French people have a better understanding of the emerging democracy on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.  In this publication, de Toqueville identified the source of the greatness of America:

In the United States, the sovereign authority is religious…there is no country in the world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence over the souls of men than in America, and there can be no greater proof of its utility and of its conformity to human nature than that its influence is powerfully felt over the most enlightened and free nation of the earth.  In the United States, the influence of religion is not confined to the manners, but it extends to the intelligence of the people…Christianity, therefore, reigns without obstacle, by universal consent…

I sought for the key to the greatness and genius of America in her harbors…; in her fertile fields and boundless forests; in her rich mines and vast world commerce; in her public school system and institutions of learning. I sought for it in her democratic Congress and in her matchless Constitution.

Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.

By partnering with Christian families and evangelical churches, Heritage Christian Academy seeks to do its part to “make America great again.”  As a part of our mission, we desire to develop the next generation of Christian leaders with a distinctly Biblical worldview.  It is those leaders who will lead godly homes and serve in churches that faithfully proclaim the Word of God with “pulpits flaming in righteousness.”
