Fleeing persecution in their homelands, the travelers crossed the seas to a New World in search of freedom to worship as they chose. America in Prophecy calls back to these brave individuals.
Puritans, pilgrims, and men like Roger Williams built "One Nation, under God”—a nation founded on Bible principles. But to these pioneers, freedom of worship also included the freedom not to worship at all, if one so chose. Real freedom would mean that those who worshiped God, and those who didn't would live together in respectful tolerance and peace.
E. G. White says this dream of freedom is under siege in America in Prophecy. This is because many worship no god at all, and they increasingly oppose those who do. These unbelievers would strip away the religious freedoms that our founders sacrificed to create. They seem bent on creating a nation based on their own secular atheism, by force if necessary. They mock the very idea that we are a nation under God.
America in Prophecy argues that Christians have tolerated tragic extremes of compromise. Instead of standing up for God and the Bible, we give too much away in our eagerness not to offend anyone. It's time to stop compromising away our hard-won freedoms.
