Should We Build More Monuments to Robert E. Lee?

People across our nation are trying to pull down monuments of American history that symbolize to them, ideas and practices with which they disagree. This has been going on for quite a few years in academia, textbooks, essays and other media. Confederate General Robert E. Lee, since his death in 1870, had been considered an exemplar to be admired and emulated. He has become the number one target of the destroyers. How should we address this national iconoclasm? Our first duty is to find out the truth regarding the historic people under attack, then teach our children about them. . Destroying the reputation of heroic fore-fathers has ever been a goal of those whose agenda is totalitarianism and complete conformity to a leftist ideology. This seminar will discuss many of the practical & historical issues related to the current destructive movements and suggest strategies to preserve the heritage of the past.People across our nation are trying to pull down monuments of American history that symbolize to them, ideas and practices with which they disagree.

How to Tour a Museum like a Christian

Museums are often wonderful places to view the material culture or physical reality of the past in an informative and interactive way. We must realize going in, however, that they are not neutral or objective presentations for you entertainment. Historians, scientists, anthropologists, or people with academic degrees in museology all have a worldview and a perspective that is far from objective. Historian Bill Potter of Landmark Events teaches in this seminar that Christians need a proper strategy for visiting museums, and a self-conscious application of what we believe, to what we are seeing. Although the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History shouts an evolutionary worldview from beginning to end, you as a Christian can still benefit from a visit there, as long as sound biblical presuppositions inform your tour. Our children need to know this or they can be sucked into a way of looking at the past that is clever, informative and entertaining, but soul-destroying.

A Politically Incorrect Guide to American History

If you try to learn your American history from the nightly news, television pundits, civil government courses, most textbooks and not just a few college professors, you will be fed a whole new narrative, with traditional heroes now evil, and evil men of the past, now admirable. For instance, like a Hindu mantra, the collective chants the phrase “separation of church and state” as if it were a sacred principle found in the Constitution. Presidents who expanded the power of government were not the liberty-loving exemplars you have been taught. In this workshop, historian Bill Potter of Landmark Events will help identify some of the most egregious errors that have been concocted over the course of American history, and present a strategy to seek out the best explanations. At the heart of it all is the vital development of biblical perspective to view our history from the presuppositions of a Christian worldview.

A Cloud of Witnesses: Eleven Great Biographies for Families and Students

More than 300,000 new book titles are published in the United States each year. Many of the non-fiction works are biographies. Which books of history are the most important for ourselves and our children to read—books that are edifying, true, and well-written? The Bible enjoins us to study the lives of Christians of the past—the “cloud of witnesses” whose faith set an example for us to follow. I have read more than a thousand biographies over the past fifty year and have selected eleven of the best, written about Christians of the past, whose lives are examples for us today. In this presentation I will give a thumbnail sketch of the lives of eleven exemplary men, with a recommended biography title for each: Oliver Cromwell, Mitsuo Fushida, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jonathan Jackson, Adoniram Judson, John Knox, Robert E. Lee, John G. Paton, Pierre Viret, Noah Webster, and George Whitefield.
