The real problem with America is its loss of faith and the influence of Christianity. Regardless of our many national ills, nothing compares to the depreciation of our spiritual capital: faith and character.

One reason for this was the overwhelming influence of Charles Darwin who gave the world an allegedly “scientific” theory to move men from creationism to chaos. We are seeing the end result of his philosophy.

Take a few moments now as Chalcedon President, Mark Rushdoony, explains this simply but profound effect of America’s declining faith.
