When trying to discuss racial differences with Christians, one is frequently confronted with the argument that “racial differences do not exist because God commands us to love everyone,” or that “racial differences do not exist because we are all one in Christ.” These arguments rely on incredibly flawed logic.
Leaving aside for the moment the issue of race, let us consider a white man with two sons. Imagine that one of his sons has been blessed with genius level intelligence, and his other son is of average intelligence. God requires that this father love and care for both of his sons, but this does not change the fact that God created the two sons to be different in intelligence.
Or again, imagine a white woman who is married to a white man and has an infant son. The woman’s husband and the woman’s son cannot be said to be equal in any respect. The husband far excels the son physically and intellectually. But the woman loves both her son and her husband. Let us further imagine that the woman’s son is born with a mental defect, and will never become intellectually mature. Throughout her entire life, this woman will love her son with all her heart, but this warm and beautiful love has absolutely no bearing on his mental abilities. Furthermore, it is not at all unchristian for us to look at this mentally disabled child and declare that he is incapable of performing certain tasks, and his inability to perform these tasks does not diminish the love that we feel for him.
What should be clear by now is this: as Christians, our ability and duty to love has nothing to do with the gifts or defects of certain individuals. Indeed, if all people were equal in every way, it would be easy to love them all equally. It is precisely because people are unequal that it is so difficult to love them all, and when God commands that we love everything, including our enemies, he is calling us to a most difficult task.
Returning now to the question of race, if God did not create all white men to be equal, and did not even create two brothers born to the same parents to be equal, how incredible is it to believe that He created all races to be equal? The Christian’s duty to love all men simply cannot imply their physical or intellectual equality.
Anti-nationalist Christians frequently cite certain passages from the Apostle Paul in support of their position. The two most popular passages are:
There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither bond nor free, there can be no male and female; for ye all are one man in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28)
…there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondman, freeman; but Christ is all, and in all. (Colossians 3:11)
The anti-nationalists claim that given what Paul says, it is unchristian to believe that there are racial differences. But let us consider: if white and black Christians are one in Christ, then surely all white Christians are also one in Christ. But just because all white Christians are one in Christ, it does not follow that all white men are equal in every way. Indeed, no one ever uses this passage to suggest that all men within a particular race are equal, only that all races are equal. Everyone acknowledges that there are certain neurological conditions such as autism and dyslexia that affect cognitive ability, and that therefore there is a physical, genetic component to intelligence. Everyone acknowledges that there are wide differences in intelligence within each particular race. Everyone acknowledges that there are physical differences amongst the different races. But devotion to the false, globalist idol of racial equality prevents people from making the obvious logical conclusion, that differences in intelligence exists amongst the races just as much as they do within each particular race.
Furthermore, in the passage from Galatians Paul says that there is “no male and female,” but surely this does not mean that men and women are interchangeable or biologically identical. If Galatians 3:28 means that all races are exactly the same and should not be distinguished in any way, then the passage must also imply that all Church offices should be open to women and that women should be able to marry each other.
By this point we should recognize a clear trend: every Scriptural argument employed by anti-nationalists is applied in an inconsistent way. They are twisting the obvious meaning of Scripture in an effort to support the modern leftists dogma of egalitarianism.
