There's a discussion on another blog in which the perennial subject of Christianity and its place in our cause is discussed. It really doesn't matter which blog, because this discussion has occurred and will occur on countless ethnonationalist blogs, and wherever it takes place, effective defenses of Christianity are few and far between. The anti-Christian side always carries the day.
Those who do try to defend Christianity, in any discussion, always seem to be a bit flummoxed by the fact that they are outnumbered and out-shouted. So they tend to fade away while those who have resentments and grudges against Christianity have the last word. It is very disheartening for a Christian to see.
I believe Christians on our side have internalized a lot of the criticisms (if you can call them that) of our Faith and our heritage, and they seem defenseless because they have really bought the criticisms.
When our Scriptures tell us to 'contend for the faith', does this mean only in a thelogical debate, or does it mean contending for the good name of Christianity and Christ? It seems most Christians take it as being meant in a theological sense alone, or in a situation involving proselytizing.
Although I know I am not in the mainstream on this point (as I usually am not on any subject) I don't think that potentially just anybody can be won to the faith. Some people, especially those who have hardened their hearts and bear massive grudges toward Christianity, likely cannot. (And yes I know that Paul was once a persecutor of the faith). The haters of Christianity will likely never convert, and they will be those who continue to blaspheme even when the End Time events are taking place. So I think it unlikely that those who spend most of their time bashing Christianity on pro-White blogs will ever be converted. I don't even think they can be led to a more moderate or tolerant position on Christianity. They have made themselves enemies to us and will remain such.
However many ethnonationalists who are self-identified Christians seem quite content to be unequally yoked with those who hate Christianity. I may be on the same side in our current predicament as regards our people but I cannot be yoked together with people who hate our heritage and who hate Christ, regardless of where they stand on political matters.
The question is, can our side unite? How can those who curse Christ and Christians make common cause with people like me?
I could make a reluctant truce with the Christian-bashers if they would leave off their campaign of vilification. But that seems unlikely. At times I have even thought of de-linking some of the more Christian-unfriendly blogs on my sidebar because as I think Justin asked on his blog once, are Christian bloggers guilty of unequal yoking if we even link to self-identified enemies of Christ?
If the other side would agree to disagree with us, I could make some kind of qualified alliance with them but if they continue to attack our Christian heritage and faith, I can't make common cause with them.
No doubt this will cause me to be labeled intolerant; so be it. There are certain things I can't tolerate, just as the anti-Christian crowd cannot tolerate Christians and the name of Christ.
If the anti-Christian ethnonationalists ever 'won', if they ever held real power, I believe they would act against Christians. They would likely proscribe Christianity, and judging by the rhetoric, they would have no problem with purging Christians, who, they insist, are worshippers of a 'Jewish God' or an 'alien religion.' And these same people, ironically, are those who quote foreign 'philosophers' who are just as alien in my view; they are blind fans of fringe European intellectuals, even bizarre people like "Savitri Devi" who was a kind of European would-be Hindu, who married a Hindu. How is this not ''alien''?
At least seek out the wisdom among our own people before following those who follow far-off gods.
But for the Christians who are strange bedfellows with those who hate our faith and our Savior, I ask a few questions which I hope will provoke some thought:
What if the so-called Caucasian race had Middle Eastern origins? Are they then ''Semitic''? Where did the European race originate?
Most of the anti-Christians seem to be secularists or atheists, or perhaps people who profess paganism yet don't really believe in it. Do they believe humans 'evolved' in Africa and then just teleported themselves to Europe?
To Christians who denounce their fellow Christians for their blindness and their embrace of multiculturalism, doesn't this blindness simply indicate their lack of fidelity to Christianity? Or how do you believe the fault lies in Christianity, rather than in its apostate 'adherents' of today?
Christians, does your Bible not foretell that there would be a great 'falling away' in the last days? This is what we are seeing; why does it dismay you? Yes, I get angry about it because it's wrong but I fully expect that it will continue as foretold. But that doesn't mean we give up and give in or join the fallen-away former brethren. It just means that we are seeing prophecy confirmed in our time.
And the big question for both the Christian critics and the anti-Christians: does it even matter if a religion is based on truth, or is a religion only a means to an end? It seems both the Christians who are questioning Christianity and the haters of Christ see religion as something that is meant to 'help us survive' or something that is a useful tool to 'unite' people. Now, does anybody remember the phrase 'not peace, but a sword'?
Does that ring a bell?
Unity can never come at the cost of truth.
Truth should be the goal here; is a religion true, or is it not true? Of course the anti-Christians with their juvenile sneers about Christians and their ''imaginary friend'' God or about the 'flying spaghetti monster' would say that Christianity (or religion in general) is a fairy-tale or worse. Go ahead and deny. You don't like to consider the possibility that Christianity is true, so deny away, scoff away. We'll all find out one day who is right.
But what good is it to shop around for a religion that will help us accomplish a political end, or a religion that would supposedly make us invincible in battle, if it is not true? If it is not true, how efficacious can it be? Is religion or faith only a tool to advance some agenda? If that is your thinking, then religion is just man-made, something to be used.
But what if there IS a God, and a God who is not some vague impersonal amorphous being like 'The Force' of Star Wars, or the 'Atma' of Hinduism? What if God exists and he is a Personal God with his own plan for this world?
If you believe, first, that objective truth exists, then it's up to us not to reject something just because it rubs our own arrogance the wrong way, but to investigate it, open-mindedly, to determine if it is true.
Sadly, it seems few people in 2012 seem to believe there is an objective truth; they pick and choose what they believe on the basis of personal preference.
Christianity will never be a majority religion; 'few are chosen.'
The Bible tells us this repeatedly. We will never win everyone over. 'Few there be that find' the 'narrow way.'
And yes, the 'narrow way' is what puts most hedonist, narcissistic people off today. Christianity has too many moral rules, too many thou shalt nots. Why not pick a 'better' religion that prescribes, oh, say, fun fertility rites or 'sex magick'? Or at least a religion that tells you you will be a 'god' and that everything is 'One', and the world can be a paradise if we all meditate and think positive?
The Rajneesh cult of the 1980s attracted hordes of young adherents because it approved of public sex, promiscuity, and materialism. That's the kind of religion that wins 21st century people; not a religion that tells you life is hard, and 'in this world you will have tribulation.' So people will flock to libertine religions. So be it.
But truth matters. We can't conjure up tailor-made 'gods', even to promote our people's survival. Something is true, or it isn't.
The fact is, our people, our ancestors, thrived under Christianity for many centuries. None of the critics seem to address this. And as Christianity has declined, our people and civilization have decayed. There's no disputing that. Christianity is a religion that was forged in Europe, not in the 'desert', as the people who like to parrot Nietzsche say. It is a European religion. It fits us.
One more ironic note about the most vitriolic critics of Christianity: they often hate Judaism while they agree 100 per cent with their Jewish foes about Christianity. To these people I would ask: if push came to shove, would you side with your Christian kinsmen, or with anti-Christians who are not your brethren racially or ethnically? I suspect it could be the latter. And that is troubling. Is blood thicker than ideology? We'll see in the near future, I think.
