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.
