In the pages that follow, I will be pointing out many situations in which our forefathers failed to trust in God. But please don't imagine that I'm some anti-American, left-wing secularist. I'm very conservative spiritually, economically, and socially. I believe in the inspiration and infallibility of the Scriptures. And I count it a privilege to be an American citizen.However, the point is this: if we cover over and glorify the sins of our forefathers, then we and our children are never going to learn to truly trust in God. Rather, we'll imagine that so long as we put "In God We Trust" on our coins, we're on the right track.
