The One Edit That Changed History

"Benjamin Franklin's revision of the Declaration of Independence by replacing "sacred and undeniable" with "self-evident" marked a shift towards post-Christian ideals and the development of the modern world. The year 1776, which saw the American War of Independence and a host of other formative events, was pivotal to the development of the modern world, marked by its weird and ex-Christian characteristics. In this video, Andrew Wilson also discusses his book "Remaking the World" on the origin story of post-Christian Western thought and the importance of understanding how the world came to be in its present state. By understanding the grace of God and extending freedom to others, we can appreciate the context of the world we live in and root ourselves in God even in a post-Christian generation." from video introduction
