About Battle for Civilization
After WWII, the war-weary nations of Europe began to rebuild their cultures. Buildings lay as rubble, but the foundations of civility were still there. The survivors carried a deep Christian heritage of civility, literacy, virtue, industry, personal discipline, a free economy, and law and order. From this foundation peaceful cities rose from the ashes.
But what if a nation has endured destructive war over many generations? What if that nation never had a deep Christian heritage? What if the main foundations are dust, pagan superstitions, and the bones of family members killed by genocidal enemies? What if that is all you have? How can a nation be built from nothing?
The answer: Any nation can rise if it lays the right foundations.
The Battle for Civilization is a documentary series that will cover 3000 years of cultural ups and downs. You’ll discover why the timeless foundations of civil society have been forgotten or covered up. You will learn how simple it is to understand the theological complexities of culture, and how necessary it is to rediscover the courage and the wisdom that made civilization a reality in places that have since lost it.
This series can inspire American men to courage in ways they never have had when they see how average men rose up with maturity and responsibility to defy tyrants, terrorists, pirates, false prophets, and armies of petty bureaucrats.
At its heart, The Battle for Civilization is a documentary series on the Great Commission. Christians have misplaced the simple understanding of Christ’s command to make disciples of nations: all nations. The simple duties that start in their families are supposed to then extend to their communities and beyond. For, under Christ’s parting command, it is the responsibility of every Christian to be a nation-builder.
This documentary episode, The Rise and Fall of Nations, will explain the biblical origin of nations, and reveal the role of religion in every culture of history, including today’s militantly secular faith, at war with the last remnants of Christianity. The film documents the powerful influence of a Christian worldview in building the most developed nations, and shows why development is not possible without the framework of a biblical system of law, justice, economy, family, and education.
Most of all, The Rise and Fall of Nations will explore one unlikely place where civilization is making a remarkable comeback. Black Christians are leading the way, and the West can learn from their simple faith and determination.
