24.2.15

THE WHITE RACIAL FAMILY SHOULD LEAD A RENEWED CHRISTENDOM

White Race & Christendom
Ancient Israel was a chosen family. God promised to give the patriarch Abraham as many descendants as there were stars in the sky. The Nation of Israel was a partial flesh and blood fulfillment of God's promise.

From this family God chose the Davidic branch of the tribe of Judah to serve as his chosen monarchs. Because of God's favor, and David's loyalty, the Davidic dynasty gained the divine right to rule over God's chosen people.

In a similar way, the coming of Jesus inaugurated the foundation of a new family (or an extension of the old one) in which the nations of the world would be incorporated into the body of Christ. A new nation.

While this is understood and accepted by most Christians, there's another connection that isn't often noticed. God appears to have been silently preparing a new royal branch for his holy nation. While most of the world's ethnos were mired in hedonism, the white race (created by a synthesis of the ethnic groups who accepted the Christian religion) remained the defenders and preservers of God's religion.

Christianity gave birth to a new European self expression over the course of more than a millennia. As one scholar pointed out, Christendom created white racial identity by contrasting white Christian phenotypes with those of pagan peoples:
"[Perkinson] regards whiteness as the hidden offspring of white supremacy, an upshot of Christian supremacy. According to him, white identity took shape as an explicit theological position, 'born of European encounter with people, places, and things that fit no clear category on the map of Christian cognition.' Soon bodily surfaces were invested with spiritual significance. European light skin colour became a marker for being Christian over against the native's paganism (2004, 156)." [1]
Because Christianity was severely diminished in the non-European world prior to white imperial expansion in the fifteenth century (with some notable exceptions), Christianity has now become somewhat synonymous with white self expression. This shouldn't be shocking considering most of the Christian groups around the world are the result of Euroethnic evangelism.

The academic Gerrie Snyman wrote: "the [European] missionary came [to Africa] with the idea that he has the truth and the only path to the One God, the Christian deity. Ancestor worship has been regarded as a relapse into sin." [2]

Because Christianity must completely dominate a person's life to be considered legitimate, any anti-white (anti-Christian) cultural expression possessed by a people group must be eliminated in order to join the fellowship of believers.

The reason whites don't have to abandon aspects of our own identity to become Christian is that Christianity gave birth to whites. The ethnic groups that joined the white race did, however, abandon their past identities. This process of ethnic reinvention is painful, but over the long run other races will benefit by conforming to white identity just as the pagan tribes of Europe grew to gain a new and more powerful meaning for themselves inside Christendom.

Because of the current situation, European self-expression becoming synonymous with Christian identity, whites have been thrust into a leadership role. At this point, white forms of thought and culture have become so dominant that for whites to reject leadership would be irresponsible because there's no people group prepared to take our place. A rejection of the Western expression of Christianity would lead to social, cultural, and spiritual chaos and collapse (as is already seen in Christian theology, and manifested in religious observance across the Western world).

Whites will continue to be distinct and different from every other race on earth for the foreseeable future. We appear to have been given the divine right to rule the nations not only because of our past loyalty to God but because God has granted us a better genetic predisposition to lead (high IQ, etc.).

Whites appear to be humanity's royal family; and, as with any other family, we have the right to favor each other (make decisions as a group) and maintain our own territorial home (nation-state).

Some will say this assertion is a stretch, and that viewing whites as a royal family is unfounded in scripture. However, the Bible often describes the relationships between the world's nations as having a family dynamic.

One example is Noah's curse on Canaan's descendants (Genesis 9). Another example can be found in Genesis 25 when God told Rebekah that her sons would form two great nations who would differ in authority:
"And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger."
Obedience to God was considered a prerequisite for national success in Isaiah 60:12: "For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted."

Perhaps whites can reconstruct our identity in a healthy and inspiring way by thinking of ourselves as the leaders of a renewed Christendom. Rather than miring ourselves in the guilt liberals insist whites must feel for past "abuses," whites should view ourselves as possessing a unique God given responsibility to lead. This role involves greater scrutiny than the less authority burdened peoples of the earth, and has subsequently opened whites up to every form of slanderous accusation, but it's a role that will lead us to closer communion with God. Whites must not bury our talents.

Whites should avoid confusing our role with superiority. We know God values all men and ethnos. By Christ's definition, to be a leader is to serve. To serve the cross through leadership is to desire "a noble task." (I Timothy 3:1)
