“The Road To Independence” Film—Part of the Foundation Film Series on America’s Christian Roots (Updated Regularly)

Now Showing: “THE ROAD TO INDEPENDENCE”—THE LATEST IN “THE FOUNDATION OF AMERICAN LIBERTY” SERIES PRODUCED BY DR. JERRY NEWCOMBE FOR PROVIDENCE FORUM.

All we ever hear these days about why we became an independent nation is the founding fathers, who were supposedly mostly Deists, were upset at “taxation without representation.” But was there was a religious element that drove American independence. There indeed was. This documentary, “The Road to Independence,” shows that Christianity played a pivotal role in the push for us to become a free nation. For example, the Great Awakening was one of the major factors that helped to unite 13 separate British colonies. Furthermore, pastors (especially those in New England) preached liberty so often that they helped to create the United States.

Written, directed and produced by Jerry Newcombe, this one hour documentary on the Road to Independence features commentary from Os Guinness, Eric Metaxas, Dennis Prager, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Bill Federer, Jenna Ellis, Travis Witt, David Gibbs III, Dr. Cal Beisner, and others, including the late Dr. Walter Williams.

DON’T MISS THE FILM ON THE LIFE AND FAITH OF GEORGE WASHINGTON

At Providence Forum, we are committed to educating Americans on America’s Judeo-Christian roots, which is the foundation of our liberty. Dr. Jerry Newcombe, executive director, has been working on a series of many films in the Foundation of American Liberty, which are now a part of the ministry of Providence Forum.

In November 2021, on the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving in Plymouth, we had a special on the Pilgrims. (Please see below for more information on that).

In February 2022, in honor of George Washington’s birthday, look soon for the TV special on the life and faith of our first president. Portions of this film will be shown on the D. James Kennedy Ministries flagship program, Truths that Transform, hosted by Dr. Frank Wright. Jerry Newcombe produced the film on George Washington (with major help from Sarah Kittle).

Here are comments on this new film:

  •  “As someone who grew up under complete tyranny in Romania and came to America with gratitude to God for the liberty here, it was wonderful to see how the Lord raised up the father of this country to help us become free. This powerful film is a reminder of how God and the Christian faith played a key role in the founding of this great nation. But many Americans take our liberties for granted—they need to see this film and movies like it to appreciate the sacrifices in the creation of America. My heart aches when I see misguided young people tear down statues of George Washington—he was a great man. People need to see the truth about him, and this film presents the truth. I highly recommend it. This powerful film is a reminder of how God and the Christian faith played a key role in the founding of this great nation – America!” –Virginia Prodan, International Human Rights Attorney, author of Saving My Assassin
  •  “I enjoyed the George Washington documentary, and learned a lot. I even re-watched and shared it with my friend who also really liked it!” – Michael Portillo, 18 year old Christian High school student
  • “I loved, loved the Washington Video. I pray you do one for every Founding Father. I hope to find a good way to distribute to our Salt & Light Ministries. Well done good and faithful servant.” – Dran Reese, Founder/President, Salt & Light Council, who adds to those who have not seen the film yet: “You will learn details about his inspiring life that will reignite your love for America.”
  •  “This new George Washington documentary proves beyond question that the Father of our nation served and knew well his Heavenly Father. Washington argued often that without God’s hand and many interventions, America could not have come into being. The documentary also directly takes on the Woke, politically-correct crowd that would erase Washington’s name and topple his many statues because he owned slaves. As far back as 1774, Washington was maneuvering to end the slave trade and became the only American president to free his slaves on his own initiative. This vastly-entertaining 59-minute video covers every exciting facet of Washington’s life and shows how his Christian faith burned bright in them all. It seals the deal that America is indeed a God-blessed nation and God wrapped His divine hand around its first leader time and time again.” -Paul Strand, former CBN News Senior Washington Correspondent

Guests in this particular episode include: Dennis Prager, Alveda King, Paul Jehle, Leo Martin, Rod Gragg, Bill Federer, and William Wrestling Brewster, the great-grandson (by 9x) of the defacto Pilgrim Pastor, Elder Brewster. This special was produced by Dr. Jerry Newcombe and is a presentation of the Providence Forum.
