For many years Christianity has been under constant,
bitter and treacherous attack, until the major churches are now in disorganized
retreat. The attacks, by those who are openly atheists or communists, have done
little damage. It couldn't appeal to anyone but our enemies, in any event. The
most vicious attack, and the most successful, has come from men who have gained
high positions of power in church hierarchies. They have used this power to
destroy everything that brought Christianity greatness and kept it great. It is
the old Marxist strategy of infiltration and destroying from within.
The first step of this plot was to keep the church
congregations ignorant of the real Biblical basis for Christian doctrine. The
average person has no training in analysis of the Bible. Even if they wished to,
they could not spare the great amount of time necessary for the years of
studies, which are required.
Let's face it; the average person doesn't have the
capacity to undertake such a study independently. They must trust their minister
to give them the results in a predigested form. However, his trust is far too
often betrayed. How much of what is actually in the Bible were you ever taught
in your church? Think back over your own church going experience. How many
Sundays did your minister ever tell you what was in more than just one
verse of the Bible? Remember, he took just one verse as his text.
That is the point of departure at which he left the Bible, never to return to it
during that sermon. The rest of the sermon may have caused you to admire the
cleverness of the man. However, when did he give you word for word, what the
Bible itself said?
I remember noticing, just a few months ago, that the text
for the Sunday morning sermon, in one of the great churches here in southern
California was, "The Horse That Played Baseball"!! Naturally, I
wouldn't expect a modernist minister to know anything about the Old Testament.
He would be strangely proud of his ignorance saying he was a New Testament
Christian. Very well, let him produce the verse in the New Testament where he
found the text for that sermon!!
In my library, I have eleven different translations of
the Old Testament and twenty-one different translations of the New Testament. It
is not possible to find the text for that ridiculous sermon, in any of these
translations. Was it possibly an attempt to amuse the congregation, in the hope
of getting more of them to attend the services? People could get enough
amusement at the movies, but where can they hear the word of Yahweh, instead of
the word of man, if they can't get it at their churches?
The first step of the plot is, to keep the congregations
ignorant of what is really in the Bible. Go to almost any church you may select,
and you will see an obvious success of keeping the congregations in ignorance.
The next step is to fill this vacuum, created by these falsehoods, with false
doctrines, which are not derived from the Bible. Any man made doctrine can be
dressed up plausibly in nice words. Look at communism for example, you know how
they actually behave in every country they control. You know the brutal massacre
of whole classes of the population, and the degrading slavery and poverty they
force upon those who are allowed to survive. You certainly don't find any of
this in communist literature. They talk as though communism were the most
compassionate, generous and warm-hearted movement, which has ever existed. Man
made doctrines can also be dressed up in nice words and then passed as religion,
and so they are.
The process is simple and familiar. First they attack the
existing social institutions of our civilization as cruel and evil. When this
comes from your minister, the man you have been taught to regard as a man of
Yahweh, it is very easy for him to give you a guilt complex about every actual
virtue you may have. The ministers preach that you are selfish, because you love
the members of your own family more than you love the people who would reduce
your neighborhood to a jungle. A place where no woman is safe day or night, even
in the corridors of the government buildings. These ministers and priests preach
you are wicked and unchristian because you don't want to bring this blight into
your own neighborhoods, and make it a menace to your own children. When your own
minister, the man you have been led to trust tells you this, it is hard to avoid
a sense of guilt.
Those who have preached such things to you are false
prophets, who bring you actually satanic doctrines, under the false guise of
Christianity. The very Christ, to whom they give lip service, warned us of them.
In Matthew 24:24 and Mark 13:22 Yahshua warned us that one of the
signs of the end of this age would be the coming of false prophets. They would
teach a false Christ instead of the real one. This is exactly what we are seeing
today on a vast scale.
The most outstanding example of this is an article in the
May 18, 1965 issue of Look magazine. The director of The National Council of
Churches' commission on Religion and Race makes a bitter and abusive attack upon
the white race, supposedly in the name of religion! The article contains so many
utterly false statements that I cannot let it go unchallenged. It is my purpose
to take up his points one by one and prove how false they are.
The director of the N.C.C. begins by making this astonishing
statement. "For years, most of our churches have aided and abetted the
Anglo Saxon white conspiracy. If an indictment were to be prepared, it
might very well read like this: The Christian churches have not influenced their
adherents to practice racial justice in housing, education, job opportunity and
public accommodations. The Christian churches, in their own internal life, have
practiced discrimination and built barriers to prevent open membership in the
very household of faith."
Since this man appoints himself the supreme authority on
what constitutes Christianity, we are entitled to test his knowledge of that
subject. Of course the Anglo Saxon white Christians are proud of their race and
want to keep it pure. We honor the equal right of the Negro and the Asiatic to
be proud of their race, and want to keep it pure so that it will continue to
have the qualities of which they are proud. While I don't condone the Black
Muslim's threat of violent revolution, I do respect them for their own
self-respect. They should be proud of being Negroes and don't want to become an
imitation of white men. In that spirit, they can accomplish wonders in raising
the Negro to a level higher than he has ever attained in the past. However, we
insist on that same right for ourselves. We want to be able to be proud of
the white race and its accomplishments. The right to preserve it free from
any mongrelization, which would forever destroy its present qualities.
For any man to call this basic right a conspiracy is
crass impudence, which should not pass without rebuke. It is a fair example of
the tactics of the extreme left in their infiltration and subversion of the
white Christian culture. If the white race were the hardhearted monsters, which
our enemies pretend we are, this tactic would be a total failure. It is only
because the white race, above all others, is conscientious and deeply concerned
with being righteous in all their dealings with others, that these infiltrators
can give some of our people a guilt complex by means of false accusations.
The white Anglo Saxons have a record of love and charity,
which stands absolutely alone in all of history. Find me just one black nation
in all of Africa, which is pouring out its wealth to help others, even to help
their fellow Negroes. Don't tell me they are too poor to help anyone! Their vast
mineral wealth, the plantations in their fertile soil, these produce wealth when
the white man operated them. Remember, this was one of the favorite accusations
of our professional bleeding hearts, that the white man was exploiting the
wealth of Africa.
Find me just one Asiatic nation, which is prodigally
pouring out billions of dollars in aid to others, even to their fellow Asiatics.
Don't tell me they can't do it. Japan is one of the world's great industrial
nations. The rice, rubber and tin of Southeast Asia brought in great wealth
while the white man ran this area. China's poverty is the obvious and inevitable
fruit of the way the Chinese are running it. The British were accused of pumping
great wealth out of India. Now the British are gone, why can't the Hindus spread
some of that immense wealth around, if they claim they are our equals? If there
isn't any wealth there, why and how can they falsely accuse the British of
Never make the mistake of doubting that this is a black
revolution. The Negro congressman, Adam Clayton Powell, said this about it.
"The white man is running scared. The whites won't interfere with you. We
are now in the majority in the world. The whites are afraid of us. The Negro has
to learn how to fight. This is a black movement. It is ridiculous for the white
man to try to lead the Negro. This is our land! The white Christians have
made it what is. We stand in the middle of the black man's revolution and
make no mistake about it! This is a revolution. No black man should be
anything but a fighter."
Christianity, and the true church, has always been the
solid core around which our civilization was built. Our present civilization is
the visible expression of those ideals. Like all human efforts, it has some
imperfections. However, it is in every respect the highest civilization the
world has ever seen. Not one of its critics would like to live anywhere else in
the world. This is the most eloquent testimony to the virtues we have developed.
There are those who are trying to reverse all of our
efforts and take this civilization out of the control of the white men who
created it. They want to give complete mastery to the various alien minority
groups, who now hold the balance of power. These men also want to abolish the
barriers, which have thus far prevented the large-scale mongrelization and
eternal destruction of the white race. Perhaps they have some fatuous notion
there is some vague good in all of this. In truth, it is the height of
Americans successfully resisted these attempts, to
subvert our civilization, until a new weapon against us was discovered. This
infiltrator's weapon was the infiltration of our churches and under the guise of
modernism, changes church doctrines until our clergy would constantly condemn
our people for wanting to keep the good heritage, which Yahweh has given us.
This tactic has been amazingly successful, because our ministers have long ago
ceased to tell us what is in the Bible. They have only taught us the church
doctrines of modernism, occasionally reinforced by a partial quotation of a
single Bible verse, taken out of context. Then they apply this verse to
something the Bible was not talking about.
This is not new; it is just a repeat performance of the
same attack upon our religious beliefs. It is performed in the same way and with
the same success as in the time of the prophet Jeremiah. In Jeremiah 5:30-31
we were warned, "A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land:
the prophets prophesy falsely and the priests bear rule by their means; and My
people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?"
A vision of this evil was also given to the prophet
Ezekiel. Yahweh showed him how the corruption of the true religion had
penetrated to the very temple itself, under the leadership of the priests. Then
it brought upon them the Babylonian captivity as a punishment, just as in our
own days the same evil will bring equally severe punishment. As Yahweh said in Jeremiah
12:10, "Many pastors have destroyed My vineyard." How true
this is today!
Let's get back to the article in Look magazine dated May
18, 1965. The writer tries to make us believe that Yahshua wanted everyone
jumbled together in an indiscriminate hash. The writer calls Yahshua, the head
of the church, the friend of Samaritans, the destroyer of class distinctions of
all kinds. Except for the words the head of the church, the other descriptions
are totally false, as I will now prove.
First let's take up the phrase, friend of Samaritans. The
Bible only records two instances in which Yahshua had anything at all to do with
Samaritans. One instance was recorded in Luke 17:12-19 which tells that
Yahshua healed a group of ten lepers, and one of the ten was a Samaritan. The
other incident recorded in John chapter 4, tells how Yahshua talked for a
few minutes with a Samaritan woman who gave Him a drink of water. On the request
of the Samaritans, who lived in the village, He stayed there for two days and
preached to them. Does this make Him a friend of the Samaritans? Remember,
Yahshua also preached to the Pharisees. Who will pretend that this shows that He
was the friend of the Pharisees?
What does the Bible tell us about Yahshua's real attitude
toward the Samaritans? In Matthew 10:5-6 we read that He sent out His 12
disciples on a preaching mission. He forbade them to even so much as enter a
city of Samaria. "These twelve Yahshua sent forth, and commanded them
saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the
Samaritan enter ye not: but go rather to the lost sheep of the house
of Israel." By Yahshua's express command, they were not to try to convert
the Samaritans, but to take the message to the true Israelites.
Was Yahshua the destroyer of class distinctions of all
kinds? Both Matthew 15:22-28 and Mark 7:25-29 record the incident
of a woman of the Phoenician coast of Syria, who asked Yahshua to heal her
daughter. She first appealed to Yahshua as Son of David, the way a true
Israelite could appeal to Him. Matthew 15:23 records, "He answered
her not a word." When she still followed Him, asking for help, did He
invite her to join the disciples? Definitely not! Yahshua refused her again
saying, "I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel".
When the woman still persisted, Yahshua told the woman
that it was not proper to take the children's bread and give it to dogs. Does
that sound like the destroyer of class distinctions of all kinds? Not until she
recognized and accepted her place, and acknowledged the good things of the
kingdom of Yahweh, including healing of the sick, must first come to the true
Israel. After Israel, the benefits could come to the others when they were ready
to accept them in the right spirit. Not until then did Yahshua heal her
daughter. After Yahshua called the woman a dog, she answered him, "Yes,
master: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs. And he said
unto her, For this saying, go thy way: the devil is gone out of thy
daughter". You notice the woman did not become angry at being called a dog.
Did she understand more than the present day ministers and priests do?
There is still more. Remember that every time the
disciples traveled between Judea and Galilee, they passed through Samaria; there
were a few Samaritans in Judea and Galilee also. Did this friend of the
Samaritans seek to bring them into the church? Certainly not! In Matthew 7:6,
Yahshua warned His disciples, "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs,
neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their
feet, and turn again and rend you."
Yahshua wasn't so foolish as to think His disciples were
going out to the barnyard and preach to the four footed animals there. These
dogs and swine, of which He spoke, were all the two-footed varieties. They were
men but not the kind of men who should be brought into His church on a basis of
equal and indiscriminate fellowship. The entire Bible record of Yahshua's whole
earthly life shows that He was carefully selective of those whom He brought into
His church. The only exception was Judas Escariot, and that was for the purpose
of allowing the prophesies of Yahshua's martyrdom to be carried out. Besides, it
was a good lesson that if a Jew could walk with Yahshua for three years, and
still betray Him, can we ever trusts a Jew?
The writer of the article in Look magazine also makes the
absurd statement, "It is only by mutilating Christ that men can justify
theories of racial superiority". Remember that Yahshua stood firmly upon
the fact that He was not sent to anyone but the lost sheep of the house of
Israel. If that is not the strongest theory of racial superiority, how could you
make it any stronger?
Yes, these left wing modernists are ashamed of Yahshua's
own words, and they try to make a socialist out of Him. Yahshua gave them their
answer in Mark 8:38. "Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of Me and
of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him also shall the
Son of man be ashamed when he cometh in the glory of His Father
with the holy angels."
Believe me! I don't envy these modernists their position,
but it is one of their own choices!
