Babylon, the Necropolis

If we are Christians then our identity is found in Christ. This should be understood literally and fundamentally, and not as a tag-along relic of sentiment among so many other worthless devices in our diviner’s bags. Christians of some race are as separate and different from the non-Christians of that same race as the living are from the dead.

Acknowledging this truth does not destroy the differences between the various dead (Zombies can be distinguished from vampires.) yet it remains that the undead are only imitators–and predators–of life.

I have in mind a list a bullet-points drawn from my posts on Christian Nationalism. I’m still thinking about it, and I welcome any suggestions in the comments. It shouldn’t take long, but I want it to be both clear and succinct. That’s difficult when everyone has their pet systems. Case in point: I prefer not to include the second paragraph, but I did because of the weakness of others.

As well, I am forming plans of action either taken directly from, or inspired by the Bible. As SFC Ton noted: Young men need actual advice.

In the meantime: Like most people I like creative and evocative terms, and they are handy. The NRx crowd likes to refer to their enemies, collectively, as The Cathedral. Well I like cathedrals and so I think that is a bad choice. (For the same reason I hate the term churchian which is popular among many Men’s Sphere writers.) Alt-Righters have no one term for the enemy, which suits their theme of de-centralization. But I’m neither of those. I am not in reaction to the movements and schemes of world and I do favor centralization, for real and right now, under Jesus Christ and according to His word.

My term for the wicked centers of power and wicked structures on Earth is Babylon, the Necropolis.

“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!
    She has become a dwelling place for demons,
a haunt for every unclean spirit,
    a haunt for every unclean bird,
    a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast.

Sometimes I will shrink it to Babylon, or The Necropolis. I suppose a glossary will be in order soon.

  1. I like it. It packs a whole lot of meaning into just a few words, at least for those of us who’ve read about the Hebrew exile to Babylon.

  2. I assumed/thought ‘churchianity’ was the word because the ‘church’ was the idol as opposed to Christ. Or in other words, pastors generally teach what they teach (feminized bunk) to keep people — women and wives — in the pews, ostensibly for money.

    Necropolis is a good word too, though.

    That’s why God allows the tares to flourish some times. Eventually it becomes clear who are the wheat and who are the tares.

  6. “The Necropolis” is a brilliant label to describe them. They are people that literally & spiritually live in the house of the dead.

  7. I’m a Presbyterian pastor (in a Bible-believing Presbyterian denomination). You are articulating something pretty close to the old Presbyterian (and biblical) view of Christ’s Two Kingdoms. Christ is Head of the Church and the nations, as well. He has ministers of grace in His kingdom of grace (the Church) and ministers of power in His kingdom of power (the nations). While His kingdom of grace is destined to conquer Satan and knock down the gates of Hell, His kingdom of power is destined for destruction. You might find this to be helpful:

  8. You should check out this article I think many Christians confuse earth with the kingdom of heaven. As Christians we can get involved in political matters, we can vote, we can be nationalists. This is not heaven, we should not try to make it so. When Jesus said think not on what you shall eat or what you shall drink, was he saying don’t get a job, don’t go grocery shopping? He was speaking of the kingdom of heaven. Misunderstanding can be deadly.

    I think the convergence is leading to the necropolis.

    We are way beyond the fulcrum in time of “leading to the Necropolis”. Millions of churched people in America have already fallen, and millions more–the vast majority of the rest–are standing dead just waiting for a wind to blow them over.

    The convergence is that wind.
