You had to hear of the story of the interracial couple who met at Georgetown College which is located about six miles north of Lexington, Kentucky. The young woman is white and 24, who is from Pike County, Kentucky; the young man is black and 28, who is from Zimbabwe, Africa. The woman is now working on her master’s degree in Indiana, while her finance is now working at Georgetown College.
When the two go to visit the girl’s parents in Pike County, Kentucky (a rural area), they visit the church that her parents have gone to for most of their lives—a Free Will Baptist Church. Her mother a former Sunday school teacher; her father a former deacon and present church secretary. They did so last summer and they participated in the service musically by her playing the piano and by his singing a hymn.
After the service, the pastor, who retired after the incident and is still a member of the church, told both of them they could no longer participate in the church service or even become members. That was last June; by November 27th the church voted 9-6 to outlaw all interracial couples from participating in church except for funerals.
There is an interesting quote of the mother of the daughter, who is soon (next summer) going to be the mother of the daughter who had committed the abominable sin of miscegenation: “They are both Christians and they both try to live a Christian life and serve God. There is nothing in the Bible that we have found that tells us that that the couple should not be married.” I wonder how hard they have looked.
What if she learns in the future that the Bible tells her that the couple should not be married? The fact that Israelites who mingled their seed in the past; it was always considered to be a sin in the Bible. The god in the United Nations building in New York City is Zeus. She is following and believing the doctrine of the United Nations, the Communists, the “Judeo-Christians,” and practically the whole world; but it is against the Law of our Holy God. It was against the law in the past United States; but not the present. How can holy seed be kept holy if it is mingled?
First, the story as it appeared in the local news media:
Pastor Nullifies Church Ban on Interracial Couples
By OLIVIA KATRANDJIAN and CHRISTINA NG
Dec. 4, 2011
The pastor at a small Kentucky church says he has nullified a vote by parishioners that banned interracial couples from the church.
"As far as I'm concerned and the church is concerned, this case will be closed as of tomorrow," Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church pastor Stacy Stepp said Saturday, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. "We will ... get back on the right track and continue to win souls for the Lord."
Stepp, who said he opposed the vote, declared it null and void after approaching the Sandy Valley Conference of Free Will Baptists, which consists of 13 Pike County churches.
The conference met Saturday and released a statement saying it had reviewed the situation and concluded that the vote was of no effect because it "was not carried out in accordance with" Robert's Rules of Order, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader, and would therefore require a change in the church bylaws.
The Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church voted 9 to 6 on Nov. 27 to ban interracial couples from church services or functions, with the exception of funerals.
Stella Harville, 24, and her fiance Ticha Chikuni, 28, are the couple that prompted the church's actions. Harville is white and Chikuni is black. The couple met at Georgetown College in Kentucky, where both were students, and they plan to marry in July 2012.
Harville is in graduate school in Indiana and Chikuni is working at Georgetown College, but when the couple visits Harville's parents in Pike County, Ky., they usually go to church with her parents.
Stella Harville and her fiance, Ticha Chikuni are seen in Richmond, Ky., in a Nov. 2010 photo provided by Stella Harville.
Harville's parents Cathy and Dean Harville have been church members for decades. Cathy Harville has taught Sunday school at the church and Dean Harville was a deacon there and is currently the church's secretary. They consider the church's 42 congregants their family. But after a service in June where Stella Harville and Chikuni participated by singing and playing the piano for a hymn, the family was shocked when then-pastor Melvin Thompson approached them after the service.
Interracial Couple Prompts Church Ban
"There seemed to not be a problem and then all of a sudden the pastor at the time came up to [Chikuni] and told him he could not sing anymore," Harville said. "That floored us. We wanted to know why." The next week, Cathy and Dean Harville met with Thompson and were shocked to hear their pastor say that members of the congregation had said they would walk out if Chikuni sang again. The parents wanted to know exactly who had a problem with their future son-in-law.
"Me, for one" Cathy Harville said that Thompson replied. She said he added, "'The best thing [Stella] can do is take him back where she found him.'"
She said the pastor would not tell her any names of other people who took issue with Chikuni.
Cathy Harville was taken aback.
"There's no love at all in that and that really hurt me," she said. "They are both Christians and they both try to live a Christian life and serve God. There is nothing in the Bible that we found that tells us that the couple should not be married."
Thompson could not be reached for comment.
Thompson has since been replaced with a new pastor who said that everyone was welcome at the church and the Harville family said the issue was dropped, but at a recent meeting Thompson, who is still a member of the congregation, brought up the issue again and asked that it be discussed at a business meeting among the church's men.
"Grown men cried at that meeting," Cathy Harville said. Three men voted to bring the issue before the church for a vote, and two voted against it, so the matter went before the congregation this past Sunday.
Harville said that of 42 members, very few stayed for the meeting after church and even fewer voted. She said most congregants wanted no part of the vote.
The motion read, in part: "The Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church does not condone interracial marriage. Parties of such marriages will not be received as members, nor will they be used in worship services and other church functions, with the exception being funerals."
And: "The recommendation is not intended to judge the salvation of anyone, but indicated to promote greater unity among the church body and the community we serve."
Church Torn by Ban on Interracial Couples
Ultimately, nine people voted for the motion and six voted against it and interracial couples were banned.
"It hurt," Harville said. "[Stella] knew she was going to face some challenges after she decided she would marry Ticha, but I didn't think it would be from our family."
Stella Harville and Chikuni did not respond to requests for comment.
Other churches in the community have condemned the decision.
Randy Johnson, president of the Pike County/Pikeville Area Ministerial Association, which includes about 60 churches, said many people already have "stigmas" and "stereotypes" that they associate with Appalachia and that this decision does not accurately represent the vast majority of the community.
"This really is an anomaly. This is not in any way, shape or form the sentiment of any other local churches or church leaders," Johnson said. "It really has saddened many people. It goes against almost everyone else's philosophy and theology of what it means to be a church."
That was the story of a couple weeks ago. A Free Will Baptist Church in Pike County, Kentucky with about 40 members who voted after the service at a meeting called by the men’s business committee on November 27, 2011, voted 9 – 6 against interracial marriages. There were a majority of members who either didn’t attend the meeting or who did not vote. The vote said that no interracial couple could participate in any church activity (such as singing) and COULD NOT BE A MEMBER! This caused a complete uproar; both locally and far away.
All of the about sixty churches in the area publically stated that they disagree with this vote. Cincinnati’s big radio station, WLW 700, which is a talk station, carried this issue and completely argued against it with all the politically correct information they could level against the church and the people who would even think in favor of this activity. This is the twenty-first century after all!
And this is the exact position of Answers in Genesis. They say that the most preferred marriage is the marriage of two “Christians” no matter what their race; White—Black; Black—Asian; Asian—White; etc. It is a matter of belief and not of race; the vast majority belief of this world agrees. Many interracial marriages are approved of by God; according to their belief.
What the press is not aware of is that we have a more comprehensive statement on racial people in our Statement of Faith than this little Free Will Baptist Church in Pike County attempted to have on this issue. They dealt with only interracial couples; we deal with racial individuals as well. Briefly stated, The Fellowship of God’s Covenant People will NOT knowingly have any member of any race as a member, except he be of the covenant seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Where do we get such a non-politically correct view? Are we racists? Are we haters, as we are so often accused? Do we hate the Asians, Negroids and Mexican-type people? No; because even though they are not the covenant people we are told to be separate from them, but not hate them. Do we hate the Jews and their lies and hypocrisy? Yes, the same as our Savior did, because they are His and our enemy till the end of the age. In both testaments one can find these words that our GOD spoke, “Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated” (Malachi 1:2, 3; Romans 9:13). They have been our enemy for almost 6000 years. They were never a part of the Covenant. They have lied about their covenant relationship.
This article will try and answer these arguments that are cast against us and our position, in particular, on church membership being just for the Israel people mentioned as being the covenant people of the Bible. Notice, I did not say, church membership is limited to the Jewish people only; for that is the big deception of this age. The “holy book” for the Jews is not the Old Testament, but the Talmud. The Talmud is the written form of that which, in the time of Jesus was called the “Traditions of the Elders”, and to which he makes frequent, very negative allusions. It appears now in the form of fourteen heavy volumes.
It tells how much they hate our Savior, Jesus Christ. And just like it says in the New Testament, they continually harassed and murdered Jesus Christ and millions of his followers.
One amazing fact is that the “Jews” who went to Israel from Europe in 1948 and set up the new nation have no history as a people of Israel. Instead, their ancestors were converts to Judaism. So those today who say they are “Jews” are not of Abraham. However, the Palestinians, mostly Moslem, are of Abraham! Newt Gingrich said in the last Republican debate, that the Palestinians were an “invented” people…he has to know that the Jews are more invented that the Palestinians are. So, who in your opinion should possess the former Promised Land?
Here are a few reasons why we are of the belief that only covenant Israelites are to be members of our church:
Point 1: The first reason is that people of other races, or mixed-raced, cannot be Christians. The mother of the future bride in the above article testified that “they are both Christians.” If that is true, then they have a valid argument for full church membership, activities and even marriage. But that is not true. What she meant was they are both Judeo-Christian “Christians”; for all people of any race can be a Christian according to what they believe. But anyone who is not of the covenant made and sworn to by our Father cannot be a Christian. The black future groom in the story from Zimbabwe cannot, then, be a Christian.
Point 2: The Bible is written to and for only one people. “He showeth his word unto Jacob, his statues and his judgments unto Israel. He hath not dealt so with any nation, and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD” Psalm 147:19, 20. These two verses teach that our GOD gave his statues and judgments only to the nation of Israel; He gave them to no other nation. He has not dealt so with any nation—including Zimbabwe. Did Zimbabwe ever have the Law of God as its laws? It is in the Law of the God of Israel that interracial marriage is called an abomination.
Point 3: Even Scofield, the wretched individual that he was, taught in his notes that Ishmael is the father of the Arab people. That is racial and true. He taught in his notes on Genesis 12:1-3 that our GOD told Abram that he would make of him a great nation. And whoever would bless them would be blessed; and whoever would curse him would be cursed. Scofield said that this great nation was the Jewish nation, and that anyone who curses them commits the sin of Anti-Semitism.
That was not in the first edition of the Scofield Bible. It was added later. What a stretch of the imagination. So, the great nation of Abram was the jewish nation, and anyone who does not bless them will be greatly cursed. Sounds like strong Jewish propaganda.
Point 4: Cain murdered Abel. The Kenites, the descendants of Cain, became a force in the world. After the flood of Noah; Shem, Ham and Japheth were the three-race founding sons of Noah; as well as the other races that were left on the earth. To be a Semite one must be descended from Shem. Less that 10% of the Jews are partially descended from him. The vast majority are descended from Japheth and the Kenites.
GOD instructed Israel not to marry the Canaanites, related to the Kenites by inter-marriages. A reading of the books of Joshua and Judges will show that instead of driving out these Canaanite tribes, the Israelites mixed with them all and adopted their abominations. That is the reason the prophets thundered and threatened until the northern tribe Israel kingdom was deported by the Assyrians in seven centuries B.C. and “lost” by being strewn across their world empire in a state of divorcement.
The prophets continued against the Judah-Benjamin kingdom around Jerusalem until they too were deported by the Babylonian’s over a century later. A small remnant returned 70 years later. More about this return in the next point; point 5.
Jacob had twelve tribe-founding sons. Two of them started their tribes by marrying non-Semites. Judah married a Canaanite (Genesis 38). He had three mixed-raced boys. Two of the boys were murdered by our GOD before they had children, while one of them married a Canaanite woman and had children with her. Judah would have been wiped out of the kingdom if it was not for his daughter-in-law, the much misunderstood Tamar. He had two twin children with this heroine of Israel and he only had a sexual relationship with her the one time that she pretended to be prostitute.
Simeon, another of Israel’s tribe-founding sons also married a Canaanite. Simeon also had mixed-breed children. Their mixed-offspring and the mixed-offspring of other Israelites helped make up the mixed-multitude that traveled with the Israelites. The Bible does not tell of anyone of the mixed-seed ever being a part of the covenant and they were forbidden from worshipping the LORD at the tabernacle and later the Temple. Do you think that they would be allowed to worship in a church?
In monotonous repetition the books of Joshua and Judges record that altho the Israelites were triumphant in their battles against the Canaanites, they let the abominators remain and intermarried with them. “And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, and Amorites and Perizzites and Hivites, and Jebusites. And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons and served their gods. And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD…and served Baalim and the groves” (Judges 3:5-7).
“The miracle of how Pharisaism has convinced the Christian world that its adherents stem from a pure Judah-Israel racial stock cannot be fathomed, since Christians have access to the Biblical record, itself. In Christ’s time, when the Pharisees boasted that they were children of Abraham, John and Christ threw the boast back into their faces (Matthew 3:7-10; John 8:33-44). Most of the Pharisees were from Edom and were never a part of the covenant that God had made with Israel.
“Since ‘Jews’ were a mixed race from the beginning, the term ‘Semites’ applied to them, admittedly, is silly. [Think for a second…who is in favor of our inter-breeding: Those that are already mixed-raced.] ‘Anti-Semitism’, actually means ‘Anti-Pharisaism”. The Christian who realizes this can well understand the hatred borne for Christ by modern Pharisees. Christ’s excoriations of Pharisaism and all that it stands for, in terms of liquid fire, are unequalled by any philippic in history. One familiar with Matthew 23, John 8:37-44, etc., can realize that the Pharisees were justified in having such a fiery Opponent Crucified, for every doctrine, every aim and ethical ideal He taught, is the exact opposite of every principle of Pharisaic Judaism. As Christ’s teachings spread, it is not strange that the Talmud ‘Sages’ came to decree that He deserved not ONE death but FIVE deaths and an eternity in hell. They incorporated this in the Talmud which was declared complete about 500 A.D. in Babylon. Those five deaths are taught in every Talmud….in every synagogue in the world today” (The Plot Against Christianity, p. 29).
Jesus was, according to His enemy, the Jews:
- Is now in hell, never resurrected, where His punishment is “boiling in hot semen” (Ibid, p. 51).
Point 5: Let’s look at the book of Ezra in the Bible. Ezra was the priest who was in charge of the rebuilding of the Temple and of the city of GOD after coming back from their captivity in Babylon. There were about 40,000 that eventually returned at this time. Notice what it says that Ezra discovered and what he did afterward:
Ezra 9:1 “Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, HAVE NOT SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM THE PEOPLE OF THE LANDS, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.”
What did the princes mean when they said that “the people of Israel had not separated themselves from the people of the lands?” What had the people of Israel done?
Ezra 9:2 “For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and their sons; so that the HOLY SEED have mingled themselves with the people of those lands; yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.”
The holy seed has mingled themselves with the people of those lands—they have taken their daughters for themselves and their sons—say that it was mainly the princes and rulers who sinned in this matter. It was interracial marriage that is talked about in these verses. Notice that the seed of Israel is called a “holy” seed. What does that mean?
Verse 2 is a place that Pastor Mark Downey talked about two sermons ago. Did you notice that it says that the holy seed has mingled themselves and this is the name of the new match-making website: ChristianMingle.com. This website says that they have over 5,000,000 members and growing at a great rate. Do you think that they approve and encourage interracial dating and marriages? It is owned by a Jew.
Ezra 9:3 “And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied.”
The priest of God did what? When Ezra heard this thing…it must have been something awful. For he said that he tore his garment and his mantle and plucked the hair off both his head and beard and sat down in a state of astonishment. Ezra was greatly disturbed.
And what was it that was the subject of what he had heard that caused this drastic reaction? Interracial relationships.
Ezra 9:4 “Then were assembled unto me every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away; and I sat astoned until the evening sacrifice.”
Ezra sat in his astonished state with those who trembled at the WORD OF GOD! It was the transgression of what God had said.
Ezra 9:5 “And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God.”
Ezra waited until the evening sacrifice before he fell on his knees and began to pray to his God.
Ezra 9:6 “And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.”
Ezra was greatly trouble by this sin of interracial relationships committed by his people. Ezra continues on by saying that since the days of our fathers, Israel has been in a great trespass till this day. This has lead to God’s chastening hand. We were led into captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face (interracial marriages). Ezra says that now God has given us a remnant to go and rebuild Jerusalem and what have we done? We have forsaken His commandments once again!
Ezra 9:12 “Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.”
Ezra told them to not marry interracially any longer! No longer seek their peace or the wealth. Ezra then says that God has punished us less that our iniquities deserve. I think that the Israel people of 2011 could repeat what Ezra said: Our GOD has punished us less than our iniquities deserve. Since ancient Israel joined in the affinity with the people of these abominations, God could have been angry with them till He had consumed them, so that there would be no remnant left. Same is true today.
Ezra 10:1 “Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assemble unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children: for the people wept very sore.”
I do not know of any pastor or person in modern day Israel that has reacted as Ezra did to Judah’s, Benjamin’s and Levi’s sin. Most ministers of today in “Judeo-Christianity” would react in an entirely opposite direction. They would be astonished at Ezra’s reaction. They would say to him, “Ezra, what are you so upset about. It was only an interracial relationship that occurred. Don’t get so upset. Our GOD doesn’t hate these marriages He is in favor of them.”
Ezra 10:2 “And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said to Ezra, We have trespassed against our God, and have taken STRANGE wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing.”
One of the people of Israel, who sinned in this matter, explained to Ezra exactly what he had done. He had taken a strange (racially different) wife of the people of the land; that is, he had married a foreign wife” (interracial marriage).
Ezra 10:3 “Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my lord, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law.”
This is also not politically correct in today’s world, for the son of Elam gave the suggestion that they would make a covenant with their God to:
- Put away their foreign wives
- Put away their children (mixed-breeds), born to their foreign wives.
- According to the counsel of Ezra and those that tremble at the commandment of our God
- Let it be done according to the Law of God.
Ezra then made the chief priests, the Levites, and all Israel swear that they should do according to this word. And the people did sware.
But that did not end the situation. It continued. Ezra did not eat or drink for he mourned because of this sin. He then made a proclamation throughout Judah that all the children of the captivity should gather themselves together into Jerusalem. Anyone who would not come within three days would lose all his property and he would be separated from the congregation. Quite a punishment for not showing up!
All the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves together unto Jerusalem within three days. On the 27th day of the ninth month all the people were standing in the street, trembling because of the rain storm.
Ezra 10:10-12 “And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel. Now, therefore, make confession unto the LORD God of your fathers, and do his pleasure; and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange [foreign] wives. Then the entire congregation answered and said with a loud voice, As thou hast said, so must we do.”
What an astounding few verses. Ezra first tells them that they have sinned, by taking foreign wives. Then he confesses unto the nation’s God and commands the sinners to separate themselves from their wives. Then the entire congregation answered in a wonderful, great affirmative!
What does Answers in Genesis say about these verses? Many in the congregation put away their foreign wives and their children borne to these illegally married wives. The name of each person of Israel who committed this sin and then rectified it is given at the end of Ezra, chapter 10. The last verse says, “All these had taken strange wives [married foreign women]; and some of them had wives by whom they had children” (verse 44). A massive putting away by Israel of all their foreign wives and mixed-breed children in a ceremony dictated according to the Word of GOD. Thus was their sin corrected.
There are many other reasons. Here are a few more:
Numbers 1:51 “And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger (racial) who cometh near shall be put to death.”
The racial person who come nears the tabernacle, later the Temple should meet the ultimate punishment—death. And the church?
What did the first century church do? Did they allow everyone into their church, as the churches now say? No. They had a very restricting membership. They limited their membership according to what job a person held as well as his race and what he believed.
Nehemiah 13:1-3 “On that day they read in the book of Moses [Deuteronomy 23:3, 4] in the hearing of the people; and in it was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God forever. Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them; howbeit, our God turned the curse into a blessing. Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.”
The people of Israel read the Bible and found that there was something wrong that they were doing for they had forgotten to obey God’s law. They had to separate certain people from them and as a result of reading God’s law—and they did. Why does the church say that everyone is welcome—was the mixed multitude welcome in the tabernacle and later the Temple in ancient Israel? Should they be welcome in the New Covenant church?
Ezra 4. This is another eye-opening chapter in the Old Testament. The adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the former captives of Babylon were returning to their land and were going to rebuild the city and Temple. These Samaritans (non-Israelite) offered to help build the Temple with the Israelites, for they also sought the Israelite’s God; so they said. The leaders of Israel answered them: “Ye have nothing to do with us to build a house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the LORD God of Israel…” (Ezra 4:3b).
Is there anyone who thinks that the Israelites would let the non-covenant Samaritans enter their Temple after it was built, when they did not let them help build it? Chapters 4-6 show that this caused the work to be suspended for a while, but eventually it was finished. Judah did the right thing. Do you think that the church should let some like-minded Samaritans into their churches today?
Jeremiah 51:51 “We are confounded, because we have heard reproach; shame hath covered our faces; for stranger [racial foreigners] are come into the sanctuaries of the LORD’s house.”
Lamentations 1:10 “The adversary hath spread out his hand upon all her pleasant things; for she hath seen that the heathen [nations] entered into her sanctuary, whom thou didst command that they should not enter into thy congregation.”
These two verses both teach that there is a commandment regarding that there are some people who are not allowed to enter the sanctuary of the LORD’s house. They are the heathen or nations of the racial foreigners. Would these same people be allowed in the sanctuary of God’s house today—his church?
Matthew 7:6 “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and lacerate you”
Who are the dogs and swine that we are commanded not give that which is holy. Sheep are the code words for God’s covenant people, not dogs or swine. Could it mean that there are certain people who are not to be given “holy communion,” “holy baptism,” “holy marriage” and etc? That would mean that the church is to be kept separate from certain people!
Did the first century church have a missionary program for Asians? For Negroids? Or was it just for the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Was the church at Rome in the Bible the Roman Catholic Church (Universal) or was it a much smaller church? Did the twelveth-century church have a missionary program that the sent missionaries to other races throughout the world? No. When did churches begin their missionary programs to other races? Most missionary efforts for other races began in the late 1700’s.
Battle of Blood River The Boer people originated mainly from German Protestants, French Huguenots and some Dutch Protestants who were persecuted for their protest against and break with the Roman Catholic Church in Europe and as a result fled to South Africa. When they arrived in South Africa they chose to settle far from the civilized Cape Town and obtained land in the area of the Eastern Cape bordering the savage Xhosa nation with whom they were forced into continuous wars, referred to as the Kaffir wars. The Boer people refused to mix socially and religiously with the inhabitants and were in continuous conflict with the liberal missionaries from aboard, the Boers standing firm on the apartheid principle, stating that their God of the Bible forbids His chosen people to mix with the black and foreign races. The soon to occur miraculous battle of Blood River, December 16, 1838, should forever decide in one’s mind which side our GOD was on, for not one Boer pioneer was even wounded and the Zulu warriors were totally destroyed; and the mighty, but evil, reign of the Zulu nation was soon broken.
John Lennon and Yoko Ono The Beatles mixed-marriage is still influencing the world. Lennon and Yoko were heavily involved in the occult. They hired a personal tarot card reader who advised them on all business transactions. In 1977, Yoko spent a week in South America studying magic with a seven-foot-tall Columbian witch, who was paid $60,000 to teach Yoko how to cast spells. The Lennon’s saw magic as both an instrument of crisis management and the ideal weapon. Lennon held a Hindu concept of God and life.
Speaking prior to the 31st annual John Lennon Tribute concert, Yoko One said the dead Beatles’ spirit is still influencing the world. The concert is held annually in Japan, Ono’s birth country, on December 8, the anniversary of Lennon’s murder.
You can’t overstate Lennon’s importance as an artist or his influence on the culture. A memorial in New York City’s Central Park celebrates Lennon’s song, “Imagine,” which depicts a godless communist’s paradise on earth.
Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us, above only sky
Imagine all the people living for today.
Imagine there’s no countries;
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too
Imagine all the people living in peace
Imagine no possessions; I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world
You may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
And someday I hope you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
A large British survey found that the percentage of people who believed in God fell from 80% prior to the Beatles to 44% now (2011). In addition, I would guess that the percentage fell on a similar basis on the belief against interracial marriages!
From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible teaches us of the battle between Jacob and Esau; Israelite and the Jew. One of the perpetual difficulties of the Talmudists is putting Communism into power and then concealing the Talmudic origin and direction of it. The Jewish power is about to put the New World Order into place. The next great trick of Pharisaism is to bring to trial everyone who dares tell the truth about Pharisaism under the Genocide Convention—just like it was 2000 years ago—“they feared the Jews.”
What if everyone in the world decided that their position was the correct one—that interracial marriage was approved by GOD. And everyone in the world would marry a person from another race. All of the children produced from the marriages would be mixed-breed; that is bastards. Everyone on earth would be a bastard. It would be like it was when the flood of Noah occurred, when it was only he and his family that was “perfect in his generations” Genesis 6:9b. There would be no pure-seed covenant people of Israel that remained; Israel would be gone. All would be like the Jew—mixed-seed bastards.
“For thou are an holy people unto the LORD they God; the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people who are upon the face of the earth” Deuteronomy 7:6.
Is the Negro from Zimbabwe included in this list?
