How often do we hear someone say, “God gave us a free will”? What they usually mean is that they have freedom of choice. Free will and choice are two different things. In Romans 7:17 Paul says it wasn’t him making the choice: “Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.” If he’s making choices at the behest of a “law of sin” that has been put within his “flesh”, but not of his doing… where is the ‘free will’ here? I had to think long and hard about composing this sermon, so bear with me.
A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales and the subject gravitated to the Bible. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a person, because even though it was a very large mammal, its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. The teacher became a little irritated and reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human being; it was physically impossible. The little girl said, “When I get to heaven I’m going to ask Jonah.” The teacher smugly asked her, “What if Jonah went to hell?” To which the little girl replied, “Then you can ask him.”
This anecdote operates on several levels as to whether either party is right or wrong, carnal or spiritual or if it’s even funny. We hear much too often well-meaning Christians telling other Christians whether or not something is biblical without any inclination to hear the rest of the story; further information that will lead to a better understanding of the truth.
The Christian Identity message is basically founded on one premise or truth that can be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the Anglo Saxon, Celtic, Scandinavian, Germanic and kindred peoples are the true Israel people of the Bible. But, this wonderful truth is eclipsed by a terrible untruth that the jews are Israel; after all, that’s the name of their country and the Bible talks about jews right? It’s quite an accomplishment to get most of an entire race of people to think they are something they are not, but that’s exactly what has happened to White people. Somehow the jews have managed to get our people to think of themselves as gentiles, which is erroneously defined as non-jews. In other words, a non-jew cannot be an Israelite. And that presumes that the word jew included all 12 tribes, even though the initial claim was to only one tribe; that of Judah, hence the slang word jew coming from the first syllable. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Christian or if you think it’s a matter of religion, because the word gentile has been secularized into the English language. I guess it helps if you can buy out companies that publish dictionaries and you can change the definition of words.
What I want to focus on today is not the vast wasteland of dogmas and divisive doctrines that evolve into denominations because some religious leader thinks it’s the truth.
From Jer. 5:23 to the end of the chapter we read, "This people has a stubborn and rebellious heart. They do not say in their heart, 'let us now fear the Lord'. For wicked men are found among My people . They spread nets, they lay traps, they catch men… their houses are full of deceit… they have become great and rich. They are fat, they deal in false evidence… Shall I not punish these people? Declares the Lord… there is a shameful and horrible thing in the country! The preachers preach falsehood, and the priests trick with their hands, and My people love to have it so, what can be done viler than that?"
What can be viler than ministers who call themselves Christian, but whom God calls wicked men that spread nets and lay traps to catch men? It sounds like Jeremiah is describing predators for profit. It sounds like a church-sponsored Halloween with spider webs and bats. Or maybe you’ve seen the banner in front of some banks that say ‘Hallo-wee-ones’; wee ones suggesting little children. Aren’t these preachers and bankers thoughtful? We’ll see just what they are thinking.
I get emails all the time from people wanting to know where they can go to a Christian Identity church in their area. Unfortunately, there just aren’t that many around the country for people to go to. We’re not in the yellow pages. I think there’s probably quite a few home groups spread around, but they have wisely remained underground. And that’s what I suggest for those looking; start your own Bible study group and Lord willing it will grow into a fellowship.
It took me years to find a non-judeo church, which was actually a group of tax protestors with a semi-retired pastor; and it took me another year to convince him about the racial identity of the White race in the Bible. There are some ‘lone wolves’ that don’t want you to join anything. But, I believe God wired us in such a way that we have an innate desire to belong to something, because most people don’t like to be alone. We can’t all be hermits if our culture and civilization, indeed the Kingdom of God, is to advance forward.
