Pastor Chuck Baldwin: Are Evangelical Christians Warmongers?

By Pastor Chuck Baldwin

I’ve been an evangelical Christian since I was a child. I’ve been in the Gospel ministry all of my adult life. I attended two evangelical Christian colleges, received honorary degrees from two others, and taught and preached in several others. I’ve attended many of the largest evangelical pastors’ gatherings and have been privileged to speak at Christian gatherings–large and small–all over America. I have been part of the inner workings of evangelical ministry for nearly 40 years. I think I learned a thing or two about evangelical/fundamentalist Christianity in America. And I’m here to tell you: I don’t like what I see happening these days!

Let’s get this straight right out of the gate: nothing touched by man can be perfect, because none of us is perfect. There is no perfect church, perfect school, perfect mission board, perfect Sunday School class, perfect pastor, perfect deacon, or perfect Christian. Until the afterlife, we are all yet encased in Adamic flesh, complete with human weaknesses and imperfections. And only the Pharisaical among us are too proud to admit it.

That said, I do think it is more than fair to say that, historically, Christians have always attempted to be–and have always publicly taught the importance of being–peacemakers. Historically, Christians have preached–and tried to practice–love and brotherhood. The early church was born in a baptism of love and unity. Oh sure, there were always individual misunderstandings and differences, but, on the whole, the church was a loving, caring, compassionate ecclesia.

Mind you, Christians historically were not afraid or ashamed to defend themselves, their families, and their country. The Lord Jesus, Himself (the Prince of Peace), allowed His disciples to carry personal defense weapons (see Luke 22:36,38). Yes, while some Christian sects were conscientious pacifists, these were the exception, not the rule. The vast majority of Christian believers understood the Biblical, Natural Law principle of self-defense. But believing in the right of lawful, God-ordained self-defense was never to be confused with warmongering.

Video: Zeitgeist Part I

WARNING!  This first segment of the film Zeitgeist is extremely disturbing and offensive to many Christians.  Be forewarned.  Many Christians think this film is the work of the devil.  This film makes no bones about questioning and criticizing Christian beliefs.  If you are unsure or insecure in your faith, you probably should skip this film. You've been duly warned.

To tell you the truth, I actually left this film off the site when I posted part 2 and 3 of Zeitgeist just because I knew it would offend Christians.   A Jewish friend of mine however confronted me with the fact that I had considerable info on the site challenging Zionism but failed to include part 1 of Zeitgeist. 

After much thought I felt he was right, that I shouldn't leave something off this site because I'm afraid of offending someone or some group.  This is exactly why I started including things about Zionism and Israel. I had deliberately excluded info about Israel and Zionism because I was afraid of being labeled an anti-Semite and afraid of being attacked over it.

I realized it's ridiculous.  It's childish to be afraid of such things.  Why should we be so fearful of people's points of view?   We're in the boat we're in because we are all massively intolerant of anything or anyone we don't agree with.  Political correctness is a sickening disease.  We should be far more upset about the fact that we are so intolerant and hostile towards other views than one little video someone made.  Anyway, there you have it.   I think the guy who made this believes what he says.  I did some checking and as far as I can tell, his historic info about other religions prior to Christianity is correct.
