Monumental: Kirk Cameron and America's National Treasure

A new documentary on the state of America as we know is being produced by Kirk Cameron and played live in 450 theaters on March 27th.  "Monumental: In Search of America's National Treasure"

Now, more than ever, this nation needs to come to its senses and acknowledge the Creator that has guided and protected its families, inspired its founding documents, and sustained its resolve through times of turmoil.

Compare America now to America at its founding:

Bankrupt: No money and having to taxes raised over 300% in the years proceeding the revolution, leading to the Boston Tea Party revolt among others.  There was not even enough money to buy boots for the army defending their existence during the winter where the soldiers braved it out at Vally Forge. 

Dis-Unity:  Churches were having interdenominational fights and state governments were fragmented as to whether or not to support the war for independence.

Cultural Rot: Slavery existed, persecution of minorities was much more rampant, the culture was divided. The church has a king who had set himself up as god on earth, society has their 'antichrists' all around them.   

If anyone understood how to make it out of a tough spot it was them, the founders.  They were surrounded by darkness on all sides.  This was a time when you could be beheaded, burned at the stake, drawn and quartered, for simply disagreeing with the Queen

Yet what was their attitude?  It wasn't, put your head down between your knees and get ready for the end of the world.  No, it was, let's go on offense.  They had a 500 year plan in which to change the culture!

They went and built a new nation. 


Catch the rest at TheBlaze

Monumental is a live event, hosted by Kirk Cameron. On Tuesday, March 27th 2012, in over 450 theaters nationwide, audiences will come together for this live, one-night event. The two-hour event will begin at 7:30pm ET, 6:30pm CT, 5:30pm MT, and 8:00pm PT (tape delayed), and is suitable for ages 13+.

While making this documentary Kirk Cameron came to many of the same solutions that Glenn has over the past few years. Kirk Cameron, father of six, is more than concerned with the direction our country is headed, and went looking for solutions within the founding of America. Solutions do not start in Washington, D.C. at the White House, they start in each and every one of our homes. Top down solutions will not solve America’s growing problems. First we have to fix our own hearts.
