Book Blog Tour: Tea Party Culture War by Stephen Johnson

Tea Party Culture War goes into depth about the United States Tea Party movement. It explains the backgrounds of United States presidential candidates, religions,  social systems, welfare, economy, oil industry, condition of banks, attacks against the family unit, the rise of false spiritual teachers, plus many more topics. Readers will also learn about Liberalism and Postmodernism, the New Age Movement, and how New Revelation knowledge has affected Americans. It emphasizes that the United States is a country that was originally based on Judeo-Christian values and shows how America has let go of those values since its foundation. The ideas of many theologians are spoken about in this book as well.

This book opened my mind more to the background of the current United States’ presidential candidates, which is what I hoped it would do. I think this book also gave me my first introduction of the 1 Timothy 4:3 Biblical verse about believers giving thanks for food. I’ve always been around different people who have given thanks before meals but had not run into “why” in Scripture before, so it was great to see how it originated. It was also interesting for me to learn that only two of the first 108 universities formed in the United States were not Christian and that Americans were taught a lot more about the one true God at the time of its founding. This really showed me how this has given people in the United States the freedom to worship God on their own but is also seems to show me that God isn’t invited in U.S. schools as much either.  In addition, it has encouraged me to expand my thinking on what exactly Judeo-Christianity is supposed to be.

I recommend this book to people that are concerned about the condition of the United States spiritually, socially, economically, and financially and who want to grow in their knowledge of how and why so many changes have taken affect since its founding.

More about the book:

America stands at a crossroads: culturally, economically, and politically. Enter The Tea Party Movement, whose focus is primarily fiscal conservatism, government accountability, and reduced taxation.

Currently, America suffers from a clash of worldviews, but the issue is much deeper than politics; it is ultimately a spiritual battle between good and evil. For the sake of generations to come, we need to win this war. We need to take action to defend our beliefs. We need to take the right road.
