Some comments of the previous post spurred me to investigate some of the ideas that are floating around the Alt-Right. It is the Alt-Right which, at least around me (in the sense that Internet conversations can be around) to which people either flock, or react against, and so they are the center of thought for those people.
One of the biggest topics of the Alt-Right conversations is nationalism and they are right that it needs to be discussed. Sometimes it is called ethno-nationalism, but that is a redundant phrase as a nation is ethnically homogeneous. I believe nationalism is good and God-ordained as I believe patriarchy is good, but what I do not believe is that the false idea that the fundamental nature of a person is his material, and that one’s material rules his destiny. But my intent isn’t to write what the Alt-Right gets wrong, but rather point out what is true and what we know if our center is Christ.
Nationalism is another way of saying extended family, so Christian Nationalism is concerned with Christians. I believe that spirit is the ethnicity, and that God has revealed this throughout the history of the world. Most specifically in the Bible because: In the beginning there were no Jews.
27 Now these are the generations of Terah. Terah fathered Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran fathered Lot. 28 Haran died in the presence of his father Terah in the land of his kindred, in Ur of the Chaldeans. 29 And Abram and Nahor took wives. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran the father of Milcah and Iscah. 30 Now Sarai was barren; she had no child.
31 Terah took Abram his son and Lot the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram’s wife, and they went forth together from Ur of the Chaldeans to go into the land of Canaan, but when they came to Haran, they settled there. 32 The days of Terah were 205 years, and Terah died in Haran.
1 Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Terah, a Chaldean, was the father. He was taking Abram to Canaan, but fell short in Haran. God calls Abram to leave not only Ur, but to leave his father’s house, i.e., Terah’s family. God adopts Abram, and now it is God taking His adopted son to Canaan and promising to make from Abram a great nation. Nation is singular, but from all the families of the earth in Abraham, i.e., in the family of Abram. So not only does God adopt Abram, but He also foretells that Abram’s descendants will be from both Abram’s material, and also by adoption from other family material shall come his descendants and heirs by spirit. It’s an echo man’s creation; the Lord gathering dust, breathing spirit into it and so making a man and heir. The only begotten (non-adopted) Son of God is Jesus, but all those who are adopted in the Spirit really are family. Whoever is not Christian is not part of the Christian nation–is not family.
We have another word for this sort of adoption, and that is redeemed. Because we are God’s lawful property as fruit of an errant vine which He created and planted (Adam), yet are now growing wild in sin, or in the clutches of another. Redemption comes to us through our Redeemer, Christ and by His Spirit.
There are mere material nations, of course. They really do exist (though dead) and they really are against whites and Westerners and especially against Christians. The friendliness of Muslims and Progressives boggles many Westerners because most Westerners do not accept the truth that ethnicities are spiritual. Muslims and Progressives find ways to make peace with each other because they both recognize their shared and inherited trait of being against Christ. They are not part of our family, and should not be treated as if they are. To complicate the matter: They are out there in the rest of the world trying to plunder, or destroy, or humiliate the United States for a variety or reasons of which only one is the fact that America appears to them to be a Christian nation.
Now, to put that (real) problem in perspective: Most of the people in the US are barbarians of other ethnicities. There are non-Christians, the fake Christians (who call themselves Christian but under investigation are found not to be), and there are all sorts of deformed Christians. They are in our families–but not!–and in our churches–but not! Many of our pastors and bishops and other leaders are not well-formed and fully-grown Christians, or at all. They too, as we painfully learn find common cause with the Progressives and the Muslims.
What I’m saying is we can’t stop the barbarians at the gates until the gates are out of the hands of the barbarians among whom we live. Later I’m going to say that there are no Jews in the Christian nation.
 Canaan too is more of that “adopted dust”. After adoption it is called Israel. Jerusalem becomes Zion.
