I have a suspicion that there are very few blacks actually reading this blog: but that’s OK. I have a certain confidence in the power of the truth, that I learned from reflecting on the prophets of the Bible: once spoken (or blogged, in this case), truthful, powerful, useful ideas have a life of their own, even as the ragged, aging welfare promises of Our Political Saviours grew more ridiculous and delusional (before their final, inevitable disintegration).
It’s OK if you blame my worship of Jesus Christ – the Word of God – for my confidence in the power of the spoken truth. It’s also tied to my faith in the creative Word of God. In contrast, lies – even pleasing, flattering, sweet-tasting lies – are to be spat out by every believer.
(But lies do have a place, as a weapon to attack the enemies of God. God had no problem with his people lying to Pharaoh for one thing, or deceiving their enemies. And Christ Himself chose to speak in parables, hiding the meaning of His words from his enemies, only revealing the truth to His friends. Camouflage and deception are valuable tools in all forms of warfare, spiritual as well as physical.
Let’s take a quick Bible study now, on Judges 4:17-21
17 Howbeit Sisera fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite: for there was peace between Jabin the king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite.
18 And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said unto him, Turn in, my lord, turn in to me; fear not. And when he had turned in unto her into the tent, she covered him with a mantle.
19 And he said unto her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water to drink; for I am thirsty. And she opened a bottle of milk, and gave him drink, and covered him.
20 Again he said unto her, Stand in the door of the tent, and it shall be, when any man doth come and enquire of thee, and say, Is there any man here? that thou shalt say, No.
21 Then Jael Heber’s wife took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died.
The Bible continues to praise Jael in Judges 5, and last mentions her in 5:24:
Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent.
The Virgin Mary has a powerful Son, who is Truth in the Flesh, so she will always be first in honour: but you know who I’m rooting for as the second-most honourable woman of the Bible!
Lies are not to be ingested in yourself, but to be used as a weapon, a pleasing poison to be crammed down the throats of those who hate God. Paul himself delivered the enemies of God over to Satan, a power that those who are faithful of God have today… and a power that God’s people should use, in accordance to God’s will.
And now, you know the basics on how believers should see and use lies.)
Some of the lies that black Americans have been fed by Our Loving Liberal Friends are lies of commission: trusting in politicians, the acceptance of an worthless government education, and most especially the love of theft by majority vote.
But it is the lies of omission that should be more emphatically spelled out:
the focus on unjust police executions.. which, while true, are merely a drop in the bucket compared to the open, year-in, year-out massacre of blacks vs. blacks. Any real rise in the value of black lives must start with blacks valuing the lives of their neighbours. A better future does not start with worrying about the occupying army: it starts with blacks looking on each other with concern, as brothers and sisters whose lives are to be guarded.
(And such love, to be of value, must eventually grow to include the love of white (and Asian, and Hispanic, and even Arab) lives as well. But it starts with loving your neighbour, with love defined as Christ defined it: obeying His Law-Word. No murder, no theft, no coveting his woman or his car or anything else that is your neighbours…
But black Americans already know the Law.
Knowledge isn’t the problem: Obedience is.)
the focus on self-esteem is simply delusional at this stage of the game. Ever wondered by there is a Black History month, but no White History month? Or, for that matter, Chinese History Month, or East Indian History Month, or Christian History Month?
(On the other hand, Islamic History Month is bound to be more and more popular in the public school systems. And we all know why Our Masters will insist on it, too.)
Pathetic sops to bruised egos are to be despised. Only earned achievements of value, and are to be celebrated… and not as a Gift from Our Loving Masters, but build up by black labour, paid for by black money, documented by black scholars, and publicly celebrated in black families and communities.
(I have a distinct feeling that in the public school systems, any and all achievements gained by conservative blacks will be mysteriously absent. Our Democratic Masters have no interest in blacks as blacks, but only in blacks as vote banks. You know, just like Our Republican Masters see Christians…)
the cry for reparations has no real foundation in justice, as both the slaves and their masters are long gone. (And debts are not inheritable, unless you are pushing for some kind of unChristian multigenerational debt slavery culture.) And there is no possibility of it ever coming to past, especially as white Americans grow more impoverished, shift to minority status… and shift to an openly tribal culture, just like all the other nations. Blacks should forget the fantasies, and either become an productive employee or an independent entrepreneur.
Black nationalism isn’t a real problem, with a few conditions: 1) White nationalism is also accepted as legitimate as “there is only one law” and 2) Black nations pay their own way, just like all the other independent nations of the world. I myself am uninterested in people of the right skin colour making racial promises of glory: it didn’t work out well for the Germans, and the truly massive White Empires of the 19th century have become so much dust by the 21st, despite a truly huge technological lead.
Governments are a matter of Law, and I want a just legal system, which by definition means a Biblical one, rooted in Moses (and as expanded on by Jesus Christ). Tribal concerns are not to be dismissed out of hand: even Israel was divided by tribe, so if a given county or town or city ward votes to be white-exclusive (or black-exclusive, or Islam-only…) than frankly, that’s the business of the locals.
I have no faith in our massive secular, liberal, top-down, elitist American Empire. No other Christian should, either.
I do have faith in the expanding dominion of King Jesus, but that’s a matter of conversion and preaching, changes in the heart and mind… and not government power, elite control, political centralization, media manipulation, school indoctrination, the secret police, or the rest of all that Satanist trash.
