Pic of Pastor Chuck Baldwin. He was the presidential nominee for the Constitution Party in 2008. Presently, he is host of “Chuck Baldwin Live.” He understands America’s Second Amendment and how it is part and parcel of traditional, patrioitic and Constitutional America.
This Moralmatters author had a difficult time choosing the excerpted portion [below] of Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s excellent column. Please make sure to read the entire piece: Franklin Graham On The Wrong Side Of The Bible And History – chuckbaldwinlive.com/ Excerpt: <<<<<<< …….. My disappointment, and even anger, at Mr. Graham’s endorsement of universal background checks cannot be put into words. When America falls into tyranny and oppression it will be with the help and assistance of the likes of Franklin Graham and Richard Land. In fact, it is no hyperbole to say that pastors and Christians all over America are facilitating their own slavery. Adolf Hitler would never have been able to become the fuhrer of Germany without the collaboration and cooperation of Germany’s evangelical pastors and churches. It is an absolute truth that the blood of Hitler’s victims flows to the doorsteps of Germany’s churches. There were some 14,000 evangelical churches in Germany at the time Hitler and his fellow Nazis were rising to power. Out of those 14,000 pastors and churches, only 800 had the courage and sagacity to oppose Hitler. That equates to about 5%. Graham and Land are either totally ignorant of the meaning and ramification of “universal background checks” or they are willing participants in America’s subservience to an ever-burgeoning police state. Either way, they are both on the wrong side of the Bible and history.
Let’s be clear about what is being proposed. President Barack Obama and his gaggle of gun-grabbers are trying to accomplish three things: 1) they want to ban all semi-automatic rifles, 2) they want to ban all high-capacity magazines, 3) they want to ban the right of individuals to freely buy and sell their personal firearms. This third initiative is commonly called “universal background checks.” But what it would actually do is prohibit private citizens from being able to freely buy and sell their own personal firearms. This is an egregious assault against both the right to keep and bear arms and the private ownership of personal property. Should this universal background check bill become law, it would be a crime for individuals to buy or sell a firearm without filling out a government form similar to the one firearm dealers are required to fill out, which equates to asking the State for permission to purchase a gun. In essence, private citizens would be subject to all the laws and penalties as are licensed gun dealers. Can you imagine: a father would not be able to freely pass down a cherished family firearm to his children; people would not be able to freely exchange firearms in either gift or purchase form; and anyone attempting to buy or sell a firearm would become an agent of the State………
Pic of Obama meeting with Billy and Franklin Graham. Why did Obama desire to meet with them? Is it because Obama knows that their support for him will help him convince and mesmorize “his” American population audience? How many meetings did Hitler have with Germany’s “Christian ‘leaders,'” leading up to his notorious Nazi Germany and global WWII atrocities?
…….Furthermore, are Franklin Graham and Richard Land not familiar with history? Are they unaware that the tyrants and butchers of history have ALL used gun registration as a precursor to gun confiscation? Are they unaware that gun confiscation ALWAYS precedes genocide and mass murder? Instead of calling for universal background checks, Franklin Graham should be shouting for government to abandon their “gun free zones” and demand that people be allowed to universally defend themselves. Instead of coming to the aid of big-government zealots who desire to trample constitutional liberties, Franklin Graham should be shouting for the President and members of the US House and Senate (including Dianne Feinstein) to abide by their oaths to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and keep their grubby fingers off our gun rights. I further suggest that Franklin Graham and Richard Land obtain a copy of my new book entitled, “To Keep or Not To Keep: Why Christians Should Not Give Up Their Guns,” which is co-written by my constitutional attorney son, Tim. We delve deeply into the Old and New Testaments and conclusively show that nowhere does the Bible teach that Christians (or anyone else) should ever surrender their firearms in the face of any would-be tyrant. And nowhere does the Bible teach gun registration or background checks or anything of the sort. All men (not just Christians) are given an unalienable, God-given, Natural right of self-defense. To pre-order my new book, “To Keep or Not To Keep: Why Christians Should Not Give Up Their Guns,” go to:
Gun control fanatics always come out of the woodwork after a national firearm massacre. What they fail to realize, is that they are part of the problem – restricting Americans to defend themselves. By passing gun restriction (anti-deterrence laws) politicians prevent law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves and others in public places.
Keep Your Arms The book should be released in about four weeks. Orders are coming in quickly, so order now to be assured of getting a first-edition copy of what is sure to be a blockbuster book. Let’s be clear: any government that tries to infringe upon the sacred right of self-defense is on the wrong side of history, on the wrong side of the Constitution, and on the wrong side of the Bible. And so is any preacher who promotes the infringement of that right. And that includes Franklin Graham. P.S. I regularly write mini-columns and comments on my Facebook page.
