“How do you share if they don’t want to listen?”

Basically, I don’t.

There are too many people who want to live, who want to learn, who want to grow…

Who want to learn how to please God, become adopted into His family, and rule by His side under His righteous law forever…

…for me to worry about those – generally comfortable and contemptuous EuroAmericans – who have zero interest in anything God may or may not have to say.

I will worship the Lord, they will worship the State, and that’s that.

Once Again, With Feeling

Luke 16:31, ESV

He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.’”

And again, when the rich man in hell asked Abraham to send Lazarus to warn his evil brothers, in Luke 16:29,

But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’

Every home in North America and Europe has easy access to a Bible, on the shelf or online.

If they wish to read, hear, obey, and live, great!

If not, it isn’t my problem.

If they wish to despise Christ and fry, they fry. Forever.

I am responsible to God for my life and my soul, my goods, words, and actions.

Not theirs.

Especially as they well know where the way of life is. And quite self-consciously turned their back on that way.1

“Let the dead bury the dead.”

I have to focus my attention on the people who want to live. And who have yet to even receive the opportunity to know who Jesus Christ, or even Moses, even is.

(And there are a lot more souls, and nations, to save and disciple in Asia and Africa, than in Europe or the Americas. Numbers do matter, when expanding the Kingdom of God by discipling the civil, family, and religious governments and cultures — in time, and on earth — is the aim.)

…but…

There are believers who think differently.

They don’t see unbelievers as some undifferentiated mass of the wealthy, the powerful, the privileged, and the secure.

They see faces and names, brothers and grandmothers, co-workers and friends and idiotic friends.

People who matter.

People who matter far more than some faceless blogger on the net.

People who matter… and who will be in great pain, hopelessly, forever, if they don’t recognize and obey Jesus as Lord and God.

Some believers want their friends to get off of the road to hell and the lake of fire, and onto the road to heaven and the New Creation.

Calvin Smith speaks to those believers… and rightfully so.

Walking Away

Gary North basically gave up after trying to reach White American Christians for ~50 years, say, from the late 1960s to the mid-2010s. After some intellectual clashes in the 80s (which he certainly won), North was simply ignored by the general and academic Christian community, and of course cut off by the seminaries he (correctly) hated.2

North’s final years were geared to preparing his materials for his new target audience, an intelligent young Christian man with a wife and three kids in Black Africa.

(Brazil or India would do just as well. Or China, for that matter.)

“Let the dead bury the dead.”

Sticking Around

But Calvin Smith is willing to try even now to save his compatriots, the broadly secularized Canadian public of any and all races.

Yes, even the pale Secular Progressive Woke Socialist types.

And he is starting with the right place, Moses and Genesis, so he may have some measure of success.

It is courageous, to see a spiritual desert, and begin work in planting a garden.

At least, it takes great faith in God and a love of his fellow man, and even a certain patriotic spirit, a faith and love and spirit I respect.


1 Yes, God judges according to knowledge and ability. A reason for the educated, privileged, and connected Masters to tremble in their beds… but they never do.

After their daily rounds of public contempt for God and His law, the Power Elite sleep quite soundly at night. Just as the intensely lawless and forever-retreating, never-condemning, profoundly respectful-to-authority religious denominations wish them to sleep.

The wicked rulers and judges will indeed be judged in due time from On High… but they are second in line for punishment. I think we all know whose first in line, those who know the Law but despised it, and taught both the masses and the rulers to do the same.

*waves to the Christian clergy of the West.*

2 You can see all of his groundbreaking books at his site. (I have a copy of many of them here, as shown in the menu.)

He has even more materials at his Freebooks site.

Now, use the scholastic reference engines, and see how many of his books have been footnoted and referred to.

I don’t believe that his groundbreaking efforts should go to waste. But the Christian Academic Establishment certainly does!
