Before you use any material from so-called historian David Barton, think about looking for another resource. Barton has a ‘history’ of getting history wrong… and sorry to say that is the tip of the iceberg with this fellow who is often quoted as a scholarly resource. As recently as this past month, I have seen a number of Christians I respect using Barton as a reference – my advice don’t do it! Parts of Barton’s work (attempting to revise American history for example) has in part been proven false, he is buddies with a variety of heretics/charlatans such as Kenneth Copeland and a list of others.
In my opinion, there is plenty of documentation showing Barton to be a fraud along with those you see him with on TV such as TBN, or hear him together with Mormon Glen Beck – who Barton considers a brother in Christ!
Here is one of the latest articles addressing Barton:
