New Documentary Highlights George Washington’s Stand For Faith and Freedom

By Movieguide® Staff

Over President’s Day weekend, Providence Forum aired a first-look at a new, faith-filled documentary centered on the life of George Washington.

The movie, titled GEORGE WASHINGTON, is the latest episode in a seven-part documentary series called THE FOUNDATION OF AMERICAN LIBERTIES.

“If anybody asks me, ‘Well, what’s the foundation of American liberties?’ It’s our Judeo-Christian heritage,” Providence Forum Executive Director Jerry Newcombe told CBN News. “It’s the fact that our founders said that our rights come the Creator and that has been the source of America’s greatness. George Washington as a man was indispensable in helping create America.”

The documentary focuses on the former American general and U.S. President’s faith in God. Newcombe’s documentary THE PILGRIMS is nominated for a Movieguide® Award this year.

“That particular example was one of a handful of very important examples of George Washington choosing the Christian type of leadership, servant leadership,” Newcombe said.

“In 1755 when he was a young man in his 20’s and he was an American officer in the British army during the French and Indian War and there was a massacre that occurred in which all the officers, the American and British side, were killed except one and that was George Washington,” Newcombe explained. “They aimed their guns at him and by God’s grace, he was spared. He had horses shot out from under him. He had four bullet holes in his cloak.”

The episode aired on the NRB Network and DirectTV on Feb. 21 but is available to buy on DVD.

“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,” Providence Forum’s website reads.
