Kirk Cameron Shares How Christian Values Shaped America

By Movieguide® Contributor

In a recent episode of his “American Campfire Revival” podcast, Kirk Cameron explains how Christian values created the United States. 

“You are part of a rich historical tradition where faith has played a significant role in shaping our nation,” he wrote on Instagram under a clip from the show. “Many good Christian people, like yourself, have contributed to the foundations of this country through their values of compassion, justice, and community.”

“Preserving these principles and passing them down to future generations are a sacred duty, ensuring that our nation continues to be a beacon of Christian values, promoting love, kindness, and a sense of purpose for all Americans for generations and generations to come!” Cameron added. 

In the clip, Cameron explained, “Good Christian people formed themselves into a body of many members that had political influence to govern their nation. What they wanted was to separate secular government people from telling the family of faith what to do. That’s the opposite of what tyrants do. They want to control the church.”

“You see, they didn’t want to be disorderly,” he continued. “They wanted to have rules, but these rules would produce blessing and freedom, and they wanted to preserve and pass down to their children what they were sacrificing their lives to accomplish. And that was to bring glory to God and to advance their faith.”

“You see, faith is inextricably bound to the strategy that produces blessing because it’s part of the mandates of heaven,” he concluded.

Cameron began his “Campfire” shows during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

A description of the podcast listed on Apple’s website reads, “The American Campfire Revival with Kirk Cameron is sparking a personal and national revival in the hearts of Americans. With a refreshing focus on Faith, History, Patriotism and the Bible, Kirk discusses everything from current cultural events, heroes of faith, and the Biblically-based, historically-proven strategy to bring life and liberty to individuals, families, and nations.”

In addition to spreading his message of faith through “American Campfire Revival,” Cameron has also been touring public libraries for readings of his children’s books. Many have pushed back against Cameron’s reading events, and libraries across the country have declined the opportunity to host him. 

“This is proof that more than ever, we are getting destroyed in the battle for the hearts and minds of our children,” Cameron explained. “Publicly funded libraries are green-lighting ‘gender marker and name change clinics’ while denying a story time that would involve the reading of a book that teaches biblical wisdom. How much more clear can it get? We have to start fighting back, or we will lose our kids and this country.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Cameron’s successful book readings:

Kirk Cameron and Sheriff Mark Lamb highlighted their recent book event in Scottsdale, Arizona. 

Cameron stated that the event was by far, “the most faith-filled, family-friendly and patriotic event so far.” 

Cameron spoke to over 600-plus people including a high school choir to which they all said the Pledge of Allegiance and then sang ‘God Bless America.’  

“Families were given a glimmer of hope — hope that they are not the minority but the majority, and we can’t give up,” Cameron stated on Friday.  

“Today was a steroid shot to the arm to keep going. God will win in the end, and we just have to trust him,” he added.
