Resolution Concerning the National ID
Whereas, the prophetical teaching of Scripture warns of a coming one-world government, one-world economy and a one-world religion according to Revelation 13 in which no one will be able to buy or sell save they receive an identifying mark (And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:16-18);
Whereas, the Congress of the United States deceptively passed Public Law 109-13 known as the Real ID Act, which was signed into law by President George W. Bush on May 11, 2005;
Whereas, the Real ID Act mandates that all U.S. citizens will receive a National ID card by May 2008 without which no U.S. citizen will be able to:
- Drive their car;
- Board an airplane, train, or bus;
- Enter a Federal Building;
- Open a bank account; or
- Hold a job;
Whereas, a national identification card will allow the federal government to inappropriately monitor the movements and transactions of every American. Governmental claims of protection of privacy ring hollow. As an example, the Social Security number was introduced with solemn restrictions on its use; however, it has become a de facto national identifier, and a precursor to this even more invasive Real ID;
Whereas, history shows that governments eventually use their power to monitor the actions of its citizens in harmful ways, and to impose totalitarian controls on the populace;
Whereas, the Federal Government has no Constitutional authority to require law-abiding Americans to present any form of identification before engaging in private transactions;
Whereas, a National ID would not prevent terrorism, but would create a false sense of security, enabling individuals with an ID, who may in fact be terrorists, to avoid heightened security measures;
Whereas, a National ID would:
Depend on a massive bureaucracy that would limit our basic freedoms, while integrating huge amounts of personal information to be included in state and federal databases;
Direct resources away from more effective counterterrorism measures, such as securing our dangerously porous and unguarded borders, and enforcing present immigration laws. It is quite hypocritical for the administration and Congress to limit law abiding citizens freedoms while allowing illegals to run free;
Contribute to identity fraud and make it more difficult to remedy;
Require all Americans to carry an internal passport at all times to show our papers;
Compromise our privacy;
Limit our freedoms while moving us further toward a surveillance society;
THEREFORE, be it resolved:
That every God-fearing, freedom-loving citizen should abhor and detest this unconstitutional, totalitarian, supposed voluntary system being thrust upon us by politics as usual using bribery, extortion, intimidation and threats from the Federal Government. Rather than imposing a direct mandate on the states, the federal government blackmails them into complying with federal dictates;
That every God-fearing, freedom-loving citizen immediately contact their Federal Representatives and Senators and demand repeal of Public Law 109-13;
That every God-fearing, freedom-loving citizen immediately contact their State legislators and demand that they draft legislation similar to New Hampshires (see below) in their attempts to prohibit participation in a national identification system;
That the Real ID Act is the precursor to the Mark of the Beast system, which is designed to rob us of our free agency and bring us into bondage and under the rule and reign of the Devil;
That if and when a demand, for whatever reason, is made for the American people to take a physical mark in their body for identification purposes, we recommend that they not receive it regardless of the consequences. We also urge all believers everywhere to covenant with God that they will come to the economic assistance of such believers whenever possible if such a procedure is mandated.

STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Six
AN ACT prohibiting New Hampshire from participating in a national identification card system.
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened: Prohibition Against Participation in a National Identification System. The general court finds that the public policy established by Congress in the Real ID Act of 2005, Public Law 109-13, is contrary and repugnant to Articles 1 through 10 of the New Hampshire constitution as well as Amendments 4 through 10 of the Constitution for the United States of America.
Therefore, the state of New Hampshire shall not participate in a national identification card system; nor shall the department of safety amend the procedures for applying for a drivers license under RSA 263 or an identification card under RSA 260:21. (Text of bill follows in the original.)
The Unregistered Baptist Fellowship (UBF) is a fellowship of pastors, evangelists, missionaries, and Christian laymen and not a denomination that holds any authority over local churches. The Resolution Concerning National ID is a consensus of those present, and is recommended to be acted upon by local churches as they deem appropriate.
