Seminar 1: You’ll appreciate more than ever that the hand of God was clearly evident in the building of this great land and will realize that the God of heaven did not establish the first free people in modern times just to see them collapse into oblivion. Most important, you’ll understand that America can be healed and that the Founders’ dream can be renewed and realized.
Seminar 2: Nobody seems to talk much anymore about the Constitution as the measuring stick for proposed legislation. When they do mention the Constitution, do you find yourself wishing you knew more about that inspired document? Don’t fall for those giving mere lip service to the Constitution. Join with us as we discover the freedom formula embedded in the provisions and clauses of the Constitution. As you participate in Seminar 2 of the Healing of America series, you will study the entire Constitution from the viewpoint of the Founding Fathers. Participants will see that every provision of the Constitution was based upon the Founders’ understanding of righteousness and timeless principles. It will become evident that the Constitution—as written and as intended by its Founders—is as appropriate and relevant today as it was when first implemented. The Constitution is a timeless document because it is based on human nature which doesn’t change. Correctly practiced, it produces a truly free people who are able to achieve that which all mankind is seeking: FREEDOM, PROSPERITY, and PEACE. Finally, you will see how our pattern of abandoning the Constitution as our standard for new legislation has opened the door to dangerous emotionalism and corrupting private interests. What you learn in this seminar will enable you to understand and defend the Constitution as you probably never have before—and you’ll be ready for the critically important topics that will be covered in seminar 3.
Seminar 3: It is impossible to solve problems that we don’t understand. In the same manner, Americans will never be able to heal this nation without knowing what is causing it to be sick in the first place. The third Seminar is entitled the “Attacks on the Charter of Freedom.” While avoiding the tendency to focus on negativity, this seminar will open your eyes to how far our country has been allowed to drift from the Founders’ original principles. We will study the people, the organizations, and the groups who have been using their time, resources, and talents to change the direction of America in order to serve their own special interests. You will learn how the top 100 problems facing America today can be traced back to our abandoning the provisions and original intent of our Constitution. The information in this seminar is not designed to spread despair or fear about the future of America. However, it will be a true eye-opener, allowing us to see how the country has been intentionally led towards the destructive path of collectivism and Ruler’s Law.
Seminar 4: In Seminars 2-3, you learned that out of more than 250 provisions in the Constitution, approximately 85% are still fully intact and practiced according to the original intent of the Founders. This means that today’s greatest problems are the result of a small number of changes that have had disastrous effects. With the essential understanding gained from Seminars 1-3, you will be ready to learn practical and hopeful solutions. We truly need God’s intervention to bring about political, social, and economic miracles, and we can qualify for this divine aid by turning our hearts back to God and by promoting true solutions. With your help, we truly can heal America.
5000 Year Leap: The Founding Fathers were great students of history, and as such they could best represent what Americans - both in their time and in future generations - would need to understand and perpetuate for freedom, peace and prosperity to remain parts of American society. Some of these are familiar to most citizens, such as checks and balances between the three parts of government and that all men are created equal. Some are less well-known, like the avoidance of making alliances with our frindly nations and the 'genius of natural law'. Others are more nuanced than we might initially think, such as the sovereignity of the people and the advantages of a republic over a demoncracy.
