Notice the small things

21 Dec

So i was over at and noticed they had a quote from John Quincy Adams. The quote is below.

"In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior." -John Quincy Adams 1837

Now i appreciate the things that David Barton and Wall Builders do, however most people won't notice the error in the above quote. Granted if you know me personally you will know exactly what i am having an issue with. For those that don't know me let me give you a few verses.

Luke 2:11 For unto  you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

John 4:42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

Acts 5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

So view the quote above and notice the change. Very simple only one letter. And some may think no big deal. I however feel it is a big deal. The reason for that is we don't like it when others change history to fit their needs, yet we do the same thing.

I searched the internet to find a scanned copy of the original speach. And i believe i did find it, over at which had the article and also linked over to So you can get a copy on or pick a different format on The last paragrah on page (7 of pdf) the ORATION you will find this:

"Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birh-day of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birth-day of the Saviour?"

We need to bring the Bible to bear on the things of this world, and not those corrput book people keep peddeling as the Word of God.

2 Corinthians 2:17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

In reading the writtings of someone even with the spelling differences would it interest the reader in knowing why they spelled words the way they did? This word, to me, is used to point them to the Word of God for the english reading person, which is the King James Bible.

Now i know what your thinking, how do you know John Quincy Adams read the King James Bible, he could have had the Geneva Bible, or the Bishops Bible. I thought the same thing myself, and thought could i find a link between John Quincy Adams and the King James Bible. I have not yet.

The only thing i have found is that his father John Adams was involved with a National Bible Society "to propagate King James's Bible, through all Nations".  So John Adams would want to propagate it through all Nations, yet could not get those in his own house to read it? I highly doubt it.

That's all for now, i might be able to update this some other time.
