Can Christians Be Nationalists? Part 16: Be Not High-minded, But Fear

As Christians, we do not view the world as random or accidental. God’s Providence governs His creation and brings about His ends. The Earth is full of God’s glory, and there is no sphere of life where we are not totally dependent on our Lord. Jesus tells us that, “without me ye can do nothing”(John 15:5) and that, “when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants(Luke 17:10). The Bible leaves no room for pride in personal accomplishment. Even amongst the redeemed, God has distributed spiritual gifts unequally, “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us”(Romans 12:6). In the Church, we are all one in Christ, but even here we are not all equal in spiritual gifts. If those in the Church are not equal in spiritual gifts, then why would we ever assume that those outside of the Church are all equal in natural gifts? Just as Christians must accept the fact that God distributes spiritual gifts unequally, so we must accept the fact that God distributes natural gifts unequally. Accepting the truth of ethno-nationalism and racial differences is an important part of living humbly in accordance with God’s Word and His created order.

The globalist dogma of racial equality is a denial of God’s created order. Rather than teaching all of the races to humbly recognize their created limitations, the globalists teach the dangerous doctrine that the only explanation for racial disparities is “racist” oppression, and that once national sovereignty and racial identity are dissolved, then humanity will enjoy total equality. This racial egalitarian world view is borrowed directly from Marxism. Classical Marxism teaches that all inequality is due to the unjust distribution of wealth brought about by capitalism, and that once the communist revolution has destroyed private property, there will be a Utopia of total equality. The logic of racial egalitarianism is exactly the same. Both ideologies are based on the same old satanic belief that men can become like God and can perfect humanity through social engineering.

The Church is the body of believers called from every tribe and nation. Membership in the Church is not based on personal merit or righteousness but on the imputed righteousness of Christ, and that is why the Church is a truly transcendent and international body. At Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended on the Church and granted to the saints the miraculous ability to speak in foreign languages. This miracle occurred in the Church for the purpose of spreading the Gospel, and it was not intended as a model for government. We must never think that the unity that the Church possesses by grace can or should be achieved in the realm of politics by force. Trying to imitate the Church’s transcendent unity by force has been at the root of every communist revolution, and it is at the root of the current globalist push to destroy nationalism.

Recognizing the objective fact that certain human groups have superior natural gifts does not automatically lead to hatred or contempt for other races. The great missionary work of the 19th century occurred when white racial consciousness was at its strongest. Even white slave owners in the South worked to spread the Gospel amongst their own slaves. Back in the 19th century, when Christianity was still the moral foundation of Western Civilization, nationalism and the preaching the Gospel went hand in hand. It is only after radical leftists came to dominate the culture in the 1960s that Christian leaders suddenly began to “discover” that the Bible actually teaches the globalist dogmas on nationalism and race. It is hard to imagine a more obvious case of the Church trying to mimic the ways of the sinful world.

The Bible tells us that when we consider our own status as redeemed members of the body of Christ we are to, “Be not highminded, but fear”(Romans 11:20), and that we are to work out our salvation, “with fear and trembling”(Philippians 2:12). These warnings also apply to our endeavors to understand God’s created order. We must accept the reality of created differences, rather than impose ideological constructs such as “equality” on creation. The creature is not to question or talk back to the Creator.

The great political issue of our day is the conflict between nationalism and globalism, and the most important factor in this conflict is which side the Church will take. It is your choice whether you side with the Bible and the Christian tradition in affirming godly nationalism, or throw in your lot with the Christ-hating globalists who want to destroy everything we hold dear.

    Mr Pulaski speaks of equality , globalism , and utopic peace. All to be achieved through a new religion of egalitarismus. Forced immigration and other legalized through central control involuntary associations have left Americans without traditional qualities, law, a true church, and hope.

    The enemy covets our soul .The Church and the State is an obsequious hireling. Karl Marx has brought dissolution and dread; and after the inevitable disillusionment, after his prophets have stolen everything of value we are not transcended but degraded amd resigned to vain ethics , or a hopeless atheism or amorality , which is his ultimate purpose.

    The churches now are willing servants of these Satanic influences. They are secularized and best are state churches , that without endowment protract domestic and foreign policy.

    The inventions of doctrine are unregenerate conformations to the times to relieve the church of all responsibility . Therefore , they are no more Christ witnesses than is the captive state. . Man’s inherited imperfection develops for him further alibis for the state of the world and their own sanctity and holiness. Is it not time to accept that the Devil has succeeded? Every word uttered or written is a testimony no longer relevant nor respected and should elicit pity or compassion were such Christian qualities not already from our midst expunged.

    We are a Volk of mean creatures , whose purpose has been usurped by a cruel and intelligent enemy, whose name and provenance we pretend we do not know. It is the abstract evil that now is the atmosphere of our world and in every way influences our thoughts and words. We fear as admonished from above. But we fear a false and malevolent god , that can indeed end our earthly life but not destroy us. We alone can destroy ourselves..

    We should fear more him, that can determine the eternity, our soul. Most no longer believe this ; instead it is evolution, race and other improvisations for Truth , that shall prove to be another delusion. The eternal conflict continues.

    Thank you for a very good post.

    Excellent reply Paul.

    Clement writes, “…so we must accept the fact that God distributes natural gifts unequally.” I don’t know about this…I look around and everyone I see is 5’10” and 180 lbs!

    Clement writes, “Accepting the truth of ethno-nationalism and racial differences is an important part of living humbly in accordance with God’s Word and His created order.” This hits on the main issue the left and lost take greatest offense with. Racial differences are genetic, created, “built in”, predetermined, unchangeable (until we learn how to perform complete gene transplants). If one acknowledges that these are set, then one has to as, “Set by whom?” They don’t want to know that answer because then they will realize they are not the only god out there!

    Clement writes, ” This racial egalitarian world view is borrowed directly from Marxism.” but as you later contend, it predates 19th century Marxism and originates at least 4000 years ago at the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11 or even arguable earlier in the Garden (Genesis 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’” Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”) or even earlier in Heaven (Isa 14:12-15 “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.”).
