When it comes to history, Christians have a duty to judge righteous judgments, and clearly identify the sins of both sides in conflicts. What were the sins of the North and the sins of the South in the Civil War? In American history, we find Abraham Lincoln failing to acknowledge Christ as his Savior, and refusing to be part of the church. Why the seances in the White House? Why did the Emancipation Proclamation fail to free the slaves? Why the massive increase in government under the Red Republicans and the Republican President? Could America have freed the slaves as many other countries did without entering into war? We discuss “The Problem with Lincoln” with Dr. Thomas Dilorenzo, author of the new book on the subject. The tyranny and the godlessness we are experiencing today has a great deal to do with tyranny and godlessness seeded in the 19th century.
