Chuck Baldwin: ‘The Birth Of Christ And The Birth Of America Are Linked’

By Chuck Baldwin

As we approach the celebration of Christ’s birth, I am reminded of the words of John Quincy Adams. On July 4, 1837, he spoke these words:

“Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day? … Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth. That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity, and gave to the world the first irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Savior and predicted by the greatest of the Hebrew prophets six hundred years before?”

Adams was exactly right: America’s birth is directly linked to the birth of our Savior. In fact, the United States of America is the only nation established by Christian people, upon Biblical principles, and dedicated to the purpose of religious liberty. This truth is easily observed within America’s earliest history.

America’s forebears first established a written covenant with God as early as November 11, 1620, when they penned The Mayflower Compact. It states in part:

“In the name of God, Amen. … Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and Honour of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually in the Presence of God and one of another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid; And by Virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions and Offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the General good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.”

The sentiments and statements of America’s founders make it clear that this nation has enjoyed a love and appreciation for the rights and freedoms recognized in Natural Law that is unique in the annals of human history. No other people have such a heritage.

One thing America’s founders could not envision was–after they had paid so terrible a price to purchase our liberties–that the time would come when their posterity would be denied the basic freedoms to publicly express their reverence for God. Never could they have imagined that the day would come when citizens of the sovereign states (each with a State constitution protecting religious liberty) would be denied their right to pray in school, or place Nativity scenes on public property, or hang copies of the Ten Commandments on courthouse walls.

I am also confident that America’s founders would be completely repulsed by the way the United States has jumped headlong into corporatism, socialism, and globalism. Democrats and Republicans alike have created a central government so large that it would be unrecognizable to any Founding Father (even Alexander Hamilton or John Adams). In addition, both Big Business and Big Religion have sold our great country down the old proverbial river. Truly, our Founding Fathers must be rolling over in their graves.

Therefore, at this Christmas season, let us remember well the founding principles of these United States of America. Furthermore, let us renew with vigor the fight for freedom before our liberties and our heritage are gone altogether.

From my family to yours: Merry Christmas!

P.S. According to one of the most prestigious trade magazines in the firearms industry, (Handguns, February/March, 2010), “Winchester secured a Homeland Security contract for up to 200 million rounds of .40 S&W, ammo that will be used by Immigration, Customs and Enforcement [ICE].”

I dare say that there is no way that ICE could burn through 200 million rounds of handgun ammunition anytime in the foreseeable future. Good grief! They barely even load their handguns, much less actually fire them. Or are they such bad shots that they need that much practice? As someone said, “I smell a rat!” What exactly does DHS plan to do with 200 million rounds of .40-caliber ammunition? That is a question every American should want answered.

In the meantime, if you have a .40 S&W-caliber handgun, you might want to stock up on ammo now, because price is fixing to skyrocket and availability is fixing to dwindle–again. As they say, a word to the wise.

Happy New Year! It should be a very interesting one.

P.P.S. Our initial printing of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS (50 of America’s outstanding founding documents in one volume) has sold out. We ordered a supplemental printing and currently have a small number left. You can still order FREEDOM DOCUMENTS until December 31st. After that, the next printing will be June 2010.

    Wasn’t Jesus Christ probably NOT born on the Roman Month December (originally the tenth unit ?????) Wasn’t the Christ definitely, 100%, fer sure, NOT born in the Roman Year Zero.

    Duh, playing with religion [awkwardly] in stead of working at public service.

    And if you are going to putz around with theology, why not mention that THREE of the founding fathers died on July Fourth —— two on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence ????????? [Duh!]

    What a ‘red herring’ misdirection! [Slow news day at the seminary ???????????]

    You wrote:

    You also bring up the Mayflower Compact. You do know that the Puritans rejected the celebration of Christmas as a pagan remnant? Or did you not know that?

    Wow…linked…is Baldwin trying to play some strange version of that game where you try to figure out how many degrees of separation an actor or actress is from Kevin Bacon?

    Let’s check out how the Cliff notes on the Mayflower might read: first boat leaked — twice. Late sailing, after the safe season to sail the Atlantic. Got lost. Landed more than a thousand miles north of the target. Cold. Winter. Rocks. Near mutiny, requiring a forced compact to try to salvage the group. Formed a socialist collective, which failed. Colony later famous for terrorism, specializing in political and religious torture of anyone who looked like a witch or that they didn’t like.

    Did Bacon ever do a movie about pilgrims, or maybe Santa? How about a Christmas Carol, the actual inspiration for modern christmas? There’s got to be a connection to him in this somewhere.

    Hey Paulie, how many degrees of separation are there from IPR to Kevin Bacon?

    Happy Holidays everyone — here’s hoping that America wakes up and gives itself the gift of freedom next year!

    That depends. Is Bacon straight, and typically promiscuous for a Hollywood movie star? Does he date women who are now in their 30s? Did any of them live in or around NYC in the 1980s?

    If the answer to all these questions is yes, then there is a fair chance that Bacon and I had sex with at least some of the same women, making it only one degree of separation 🙂

    On a more serious note, I have no idea.
