Patriarchal Fascism: The Fool’s Errand

Generally, I don’t care very much about the alt-right/ethnonationalist/(crypto)Nazi viewpoint. They had their ‘fun‘ about 70 years ago, leaving 4.3 million German boys dead, a roughly 2 million raped German women, and a busted & disgraced nation as the result of their demonic lunacy.

AND the powerful network of White-ruled global empires, dominant for centuries, were left fatally weakened by the fascists too. Just felt like throwing that in.

If it were only pagans and atheists insisting on returning to that steaming pile of poisonous vomit, I wouldn’t worry about it too much, assuming the fools had no authority over me. Reality (as directed by God) is quite able to deliver the necessary punishment for willfully evil folly.

But, because there are — unbelievably! — people who claim to be both Christian Reconstructionists and Ethnonationalsts (a.k.a. the Kinists), prophetic work will have to be done to dig out the pile of propaganda that they use to spread their set of suicidal delusions to ordinary, ho-hum White Conservative Christians.

I’d rather have those White Conservative believers live, have lots of happy homeschooled children, build a nice small-scale (yet profitable!) business, and live in peace and freedom with their neighbours, instead of waste their lives and destroy their future in some moronic race war.

(I wish the same for Black Conservatives as well. And Jewish Conservatives. Even Pagan Liberals of all tribes can’t go too far wrong following the advice above: they’d just have to ditch their anti-capitalist/public schooling mentality.)

Anyways, those White Christian Conservatives would benefit from the video above. And for those who prefer the written word, click here.

Summary: Learn from Experience.

Don’t imitate the collectivist Nazis. Or the collectivist Islamic State. (Nazi policy of attacking Black churches, synagogues and mosques is far closer to Islamic modes of terror than what the actual Crusaders did centuries ago.)

And ditch the patriarchalism. It stinks of power-worship, and it does bad things to your mind sexually.

The Sanctifying Work of Reconstruction

Just a little historical perspective, courtesy of Mark Rushdoony.

Much of the Old Testament consists of historical accounts. For most of that 3600-year time span, God was silent, and all the faithful experienced was the day-to-day life of work, responsibility, and toil, in addition to the challenge of maintaining their faith amongst pagans without and, frequently, apostates within the nation.

We falsely assume their life was peppered by miracles that made faith unnecessary, but the miracles were relatively rare, often seen only by a few, and grouped into a few years (largely those of the Exodus/wilderness and Elijah/Elisha eras).

Later Jesus would reprimand those who wanted signs (miracles) (Matt. 16:1–4). The need was to see, with Peter, that he was “the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matt. 16:16).  Later Jesus would bless those who so believed without witnessing the miraculous (John 20:29).

Far from being a succession of miracles, the history of God’s people is one of the very normal challenges brought about by either their sin or that of their enemies. There was no “golden era” in either the old covenant or the new. Our joy in the Lord can be very real, but it is often tempered by the day-to-day circumstances of serious problems, persecutions, and, sometimes, defeat and frustration.

Old Testament history is, therefore, not too different from our own. The survival of the covenant people was often in doubt, their nation was frequently at risk from either internal or external enemies until, on more than one occasion, there was no help save in the hand of God.

The same trend has been evident in the new covenant, though to a lesser extent. The new model that supplants the Hebrew nation is the Kingdom of God, the Davidic King of which is Jesus Christ (2 Sam. 7:12–13; 22:51; Matt. 1:1; Luke. 1:32–33). The congregation, or assembly, of people is now the ecclesia. There is, therefore, a very real correlation between the work, problems, and struggles of the people of God in the old and new covenants.

The Sanctifying Work of Reconstruction, by Mark Rushdoony

Miracles are real, but rare… even in the Old Testament times.

And yet…

I would argue that miracles are a good deal more common now than in the past: but because they come from our better understanding of the physical universe, they don’t seem very mysterious.

But it doesn’t take much digging to root out the mysterious-but-useful truths that power our technological miracles, starting out with the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics. Make a tiny peek into the complexity of the universe around us — starting with our brains — and the claim that “miracles are rare” starts to sound more than a little thin and superficial.

This should in no way take away Mark Rushdoony’s point: he is merely using the word ‘miracle’ in the way most people do, most of the time.

But – as Selbrede writes elsewhere (and as Rushdoony would agree!) miracles –a.k.a the Hand of God, most especially in the form of the Work of Christ and the Holy Spirit — are always happening. God is always on the move, even when thinks look hard, the light looks dim, and the Kingdom of God looks on the small side.

Postmillennial Worldview

PMW 2019-054 by Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr.

The postmillennial hope involves a holistic worldview, not a piecemeal approach to life. Hence, the title to this blog: PostmillennialWorldview. One of the most important worldview questions today regards the identity and meaning of man. Unfortunately, evolutionary science and philosophy prevail in modern culture, teaching that man is ultimately a random, chance collection of molecules that has developed from fish through apes to modern man.

But here in the very foundational book of all of Scripture we learn that man has from the very beginning existed as a high and noble creature. He was created as the very “image of God” (Gen. 1:26–27; 5:1), being distinguished from and exalted over the animal kingdom over which he reigns (Gen. 1:28).

PROHIBITING BLOOD EATING?

A good clarification on the Noahic command against “blood eating”, that is, eating animals while they are still alive. “Life is not present in the blood as a substance, but in pulsating, flowing blood that maintains and shows the presence of life.”

So, rare stakes (and blood pudding) are permitted: there is no cruelty to the animal here. Although I’m still skipping the blood pudding…

Genesis 9:4 reads: “You shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.” This command is not a ritual directive confined to old covenant symbolism, but a moral one constraining mankind’s conduct. We may see this and its fundamental meaning from the following lines of evidence, which will incrementally build the case step-by-step.

(1) This is a Noahic commandment for the entire world (Gen. 9:9–11). It is not a command given to Israel as a distinctive people, for she will not exist until several hundred years later (after Abraham, Gen. 12), as we can see from the genealogy connecting Noah to Abram (Gen. 11:10–26).

Jesus on Homosexuality

“Homosexual conduct cannot be defended on the basis of a supposed silence of Jesus Christ (or any other biblical basis, for that matter). And we must remember: silence is not golden, it is yellow.”

The current Established corporate-media-academic-political support for perversion will result in poverty, disgrace, humiliation and death. To build a road to the future, the walls of Sodom must be attacked today.

PMT 2014-020b by Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr.

Oftentimes in the debate over homosexuality among Christians, we hear an attempted defense of homosexuality on the following basis: “Jesus never uttered one word about homosexuality.” In fact, on the Huffington Post website we find the article “What Were Jesus’ Views on Homosexuality?” by Elizabeth Cunningham. In that article she states (in part):

“As for Jesus, he said nothing on the subject of homosexuality. You could argue, and many have, that he didn’t have to make pronouncements. He was an observant Jew who would have regarded homosexuality as a sin. The truth is, we will never know his views on this subject.”

WHAT WAS SODOM’S SIN?

There’s no getting around the commands of God… even before the arrival of Moses.

In Gen. 19:5 we read: They called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have relations with them.” What do these men intend by this request to Lot?

Historically, Jew and Christian alike have recognized Sodom’s pervasive sin (highlighted in Gen. 18–19) as widespread homosexual conduct. But in the contemporary world of collapsing moral values, many “affirming” scholars, whole liberal denominations, and an increasing number of evangelical Christians have challenged this understanding.
