On todays program I am joined by Pastor Chuck Baldwin. Chuck was the Presidential nominee for the Constitutional Party in 2008 and has his own program entitled Chuck Baldwin Live. Chuck brings a strong biblical worldview and challenges listeners to live their biblical beliefs. He is a very strong constitutionalist and on todays show we will discuss that. A recent Florida case involving a Sheriff who was removed from office by the Republican Governor for his stance on the Second Amendment and charged in the matter was exonerated by the jury in a unanimous vote. You wont hear about this in Main Stream Media or on Fox. We will also discuss how the church is being manipulated in to believing it should not engage in political or cultural matters. Be sure to tune in and listen to these vital issues.
Chuck Baldwin was born on May 3, 1952, in La Porte, Indiana. He established the Crossroad Baptist Church in Florida. In addition to his ministering duties, he began hosting the radio talk show Chuck Baldwin Live in 1994, sharing his conservative Christian views with listeners. He has also written several literary works, including books, articles and columns, and was the Constitution Party’s presidential candidate for the 2008 election.
Politician, pastor and radio talk show host Chuck Baldwin was born Charles Obadiah Baldwin on May 3, 1952, in La Porte, Indiana. A conservative pastor and radio personality, Baldwin is a strong force within the Constitution Party; he was the party’s vice-presidential candidate for the 2004 election, and its presidential candidate in 2008. Growing up, Baldwin was exposed to another form of public service: His father, Ed Baldwin, a professional welder, served as a lay preacher to prison inmates for decades.
After graduating from high school in 1971, Baldwin attended Midwestern Baptist College in Pontiac, Michigan. While enrolled there, in 1973, he married Connie Kay Cole. The couple later moved to Lynchburg, Virginia, and Baldwin began studying theology at the Thomas Road Bible Institute (now the Liberty Bible Institute at Liberty University).
MINISTER, RADIO HOST AND AUTHOR
Baldwin went on to establish the Crossroad Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida, in 1975. The conservative church has grown substantially over the years, attracting visits from such famous evangelists and politicians as Jerry Falwell and Pat Buchanan. It even received a special acknowledgement from President Ronald Reagan in 1985.
In addition to his ministering duties, Baldwin began hosting a radio talk show, Chuck Baldwin Live, in 1994. On the show, he had discussed politics and various current events, offering his perspective as a conservative Christian.
Baldwin has also published several literary works, including the books Subjects Seldom Spoken On and This Is The Life, and countless articles and columns for newspapers, magazines and websites.
In 2004, Baldwin served as the Constitution Party’s nomination as candidate for vice president, running with presidential nominee Michael Peroutka. He won the party’s nomination for president four years later, beating out Alan Keyes by a wide margin at the party’s convention in April 2008. Darrell Castle was his vice-presidential running mate. Baldwin’s candidacy received a boost later that year, when he was publicly endorsed by former presidential hopeful Ron Paul.
I want to reiterate a point I made yesterday in my email and on the program. Here is that message below:
This Virginia election should be of concern to all Texans who hold their second amendment rights dear, who believe in life rather than death for babies and who uphold Christian principles as the standard under which Texas continues to be a strong state.
Virginia had historically been a Democratic state up until 1970. Since 1970 it has seen an even split with Republicans and Democrats each holding the Governorship five times. In the election before this one the Tea Party carried McDonnell to the largest victory gap in recent history. This is where the concern lies.
The liberal media in spite of all of the exposure on the lies of Obama, was able to use Obama’s presence in Virginia and claim a victory. This loss will be the fuel for efforts both within and without the Republican party to go back to an all too familiar line that was heard after the Presidential election of 2012. Namely that a candidate can no longer run on moral principles and win an election. That the country has rejected any form of virtue and truth and Christian values and will not support those candidates. This is the narrative that the Karl Roves will roll out, that the liberal media will embrace and that many will buy. Do not be fooled. Ken Cuccinelli ran a very effective race. McDonnell had to spend a lot of money to get this victory, he had to bring in outside political help and he used the liberal medias sordid attacks on Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and even Marco Rubio and the unrelenting lies about who was really responsible for the government shut down in order to narrowly claim victory.
So why be concerned you ask? Because from 1874 to 1995 Texas was run by the Democrats with the exception of 14 years. For 107 of those years Democrats were in charge, it is only since 2000 that Texas has become a Republican state, and this is not lost on the opposition. The mounting attack on Senator Ted Cruz is designed with one purpose in mind, that is destroy the conservative arm of the Republican party or at least make it so weak that it can not field a candidate. If we learned anything from Virginia we should learn that a true conservative who holds real conservative values, morally and fiscally is a candidate that scares the establishment and sends the left off the cliff. I expect this Virginia election to shape the strategy of the Wendy Davis campaign and you can expect Greg Abbott who many feel will be victorious to be attacked in much the same way Cuccinelli was attacked, as a conservative, morally and fiscally. It will be imperative that every bible believing Texan get into the fight or crosses like the one here in Kerrville will be coming down in Texas. Together we can turn this thing around and you are the Chosen Generation to do it. Please consider supporting the ministry today to help me stay on the air and continue to put forth the only real answer to what is broken in our nation,a revival, a true return to the biblical values that started this country through acknowledgement of the one true God and a relationship and encounter with Jesus Christ. In the end, the state of the Union comes down to the character of the people. … I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors, her ample rivers, and it was not there. I sought for it in the fertile fields, and boundless prairies, and it was not there. I sought it in her rich mines, and vast world commerce, and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. Alexis de Tocqueville
