Rev. Voddie Baucham Butcher’s Scripture on Race

11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— 12 that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Baucham begins,

He’s dividing the world … we see two groups here — gentiles in the flesh and the circumcision – Remember at that time you were (three things)

1.) you were without Christ,
2.) being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel
3.) and strangers from the covenants of promise


Because of that we had no hope and without God in the world.

Two things are are very important here

1.) It identifies the distinction that matter
2.) It identifies the division that exists.


Now these distinctions that matter are important because often times we talk about distinctions and we talk about being distinct from one another in terms of our race. Race is actually a social construct. The concept of race is not a Biblical concept. It’s not a biblical idea. It is a constructed idea. You won’t find the idea of races in the Bible unless you find it in the proper historical context where we see, 1.) That we are all the race of Adam. One race. One blood. We are all of the Race of Adam. There is less than a 0.2% genetic difference between any of us in this regard. In fact we are not even different colors. Technically from a genetic perspective, from a bio-chemical perspective, we are all actually the same color. Our color comes from our Melanin. We’ve all got melanin just to differing degrees. So it is not as if some of us are this color and some of us are that color. No we are just different shades of the same color. Some of us just have more melanin than others…. There is another separation that we do have here in Scripture. A real separation. The racial categories we have are artificial. They are not Biblical in nature. Nor are they genetic in nature. They are artificial based on people’s hair and their features and their skin color and things like that. That is artificial. It is not real. We have been convinced that it is but it is not real. But the Bible does talk about a real distinction and that is between Gentiles and Jews. Now racial distinctions are things we have made up to divide ourselves as individuals an it is crazy. It is logically inconsistent.

Voddie Baucham
Sermon


This is so bad that one barely knows where to begin. Before we do however, let us stipulate that Rev. Baucham has, in many ways, been a fine servant of God and a valued minister of the Gospel. However, on this score all of what Rev. Baucham offers on race is just embarrassing. Let us examine this. My numbered comments will generally follow what Baucham has to say.

1.) Identifying the divisions that exist.

Voddie hints at idea that the Apostle only recognizes one division and that is as between Jews on one hand and Gentiles on another. And here that is true as far as it goes but we know from elsewhere in Paul’s writings that the Apostle has no problem saying that within the Gentile vs. Jew division there are distinctions within the Gentiles.

Acts 17:26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 

Notice that St. Paul speaks of a plurality of nations and boundaries thus demonstrating that Nation distinctions exist as among the Gentiles. We would also point out here that each nation would be occupied by a set ethnicity as one central component of a Nation is that it is comprised by a set ethnicity.

So, Gentiles vs. Jews is a God ordained distinction but so is National distinctions as existing within the Gentiles.

2.) “Race is actually a social construct.”

Voddie has done NOTHING to demonstrate this statement as coming from special Revelation (Bible).

One verse in the Bible undoes Voddie argument and then after that one verse a TON of natural revelation.

“Can an Ethiopian change his skin or a leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.” Jeremiah 13:23

Jeremiah, by using this illustration is telling us that Ethiopians are black. Just as leopards are not lions as can be told by their spots so Blacks are not Hebrews as can be distinguished by their skin. This verse in Scripture teaches that race exists.

Natural Revelation then tells us that race is genetic if only because of things like bone marrow transplants and the fact of the prevalence of sickle cell anemia among blacks vis-a-vis other races and the fact that Pharmaceutical companies make medicines that are specialized for people for particular races.

In terms of bone marrow transplants see the subsection here

https://www.citizen-times.com/…/family-3…/1203940001/

And read about the “Difficulty of Mixed Race Bone Marrow Transplant.”

Now if race exists when it comes to diseases, bone marrow transplants and pharmaceuticals then race is NOT a social construct and Voddie is so far off the reservation that the Hubble telescope can’t locate the man.

3.) So, we have seen that “race” is a Biblical concept and idea. We have also seen that Natural Revelation teaches that race exists. The idea that race is a social construct is something we have only begun to hear with the advent of postmodern philosophy which in general does not believe in objective reality. If all is reduced to subjectivity then all is a social construct. If there is no objective Author then there is no objective meaning in the text and meaning therefore is a social construct. If there is no God then there is no such thing as objectivity in what and who we are or are not in terms of being human and therefore gender is a social construct. If there is no objective reality then everything is a social construct including race. This kind of nonsense was never considered until 1950 or so.

It is interesting that I’ve been hearing this more and more from ministers. One lecture I listened to allowed for ethnicity existing but not race and I found that strange since ethnicity is just a further subdivision of race just as races are a subdivision of the one human race. If we can have ethnicity based on blood why can we not have race based on blood?

Try to envision it this way. You have one large circle that is the human race. Within that one large circle you have smaller circles that represent the various races. (White, Black, Red, Yellow, Brown depending on what taxonomy one holds.) Then within those circles of race are other circles within those circles that represent different ethnicity’ that belong to differing races so that within the White race circle one might draw circles that represent Frenchmen, Englishmen, Austians, Dutch, Scott, etc. Within the Yellow race circle one might draw circles that represent Koreans, Chinese, Japanese, etc.

In insisting that race is a social construct Voddie, like much of our clergy is drinking from wells of Postmodernism.

4.) Voddie then plays with the science of genetics. He shouldn’t have done that. It may be true that the difference between “any of us is only 0.2%” in terms of race but in genetics that is not insignificant. Genetics is a slippery science and only professionals should invoke it. For example, did you know that people are 98.7% genetically the same as chimpanzees, but human men and women are only 98.2% the same? Does this mean that human men are more like chimps than they are like human females? So, Voddie can get away with talking about only 0.2% difference in terms of race and to the layman’s ear that seems to make his case. However, 0.2 % difference in genetics can be the difference between a Beethoven and a Manson.

5.) Voddie then goes on a tear regarding melanin. For the sake of argument I’m more than glad to concede that point to Voddie. However, when it comes to race it is just nonsense to suggest that race can be reduced to skin color or melanin content. We need to realize that race includes numerous other matters wherein people differ. Here are but a few differences between the black race and the white race. More could be easily mentioned.

Difference in forehead construction
Difference in thickness of skull
Difference in brain size
Difference in hair texture
Difference in nose construct
Difference in lip construct

And of course if physical differences obtain then it is reasonable to believe that cognitive, emotional, and psychological differences obtain as well. All people’s are not the same and what accounts for our differences can not be merely assigned to differences that arise from nurture or social construct. Genetics are real.

Now Voddie wants to insist that all these differences (and many other not mentioned) are all artificial. Further the man even says these differences are not genetic. (I had to scrape myself off of the floor at that point.) In his repeated insistence that all these differences were artificial all I could hear was the chant of some 1st century Gnostic saying that “the material isn’t real.” I assure you all these difference are real and are not artificial in any sense. They are, together with other aspects, what make us who we are. To insist that these are all artificial is just Gnostic.

5.) This is “man is a cog” theology. Voddie is telling us that the Black man is a White man with Black skin and the White man is a Black man with White skin. It’s insane.

We are left asking ourselves, “Who is the one who is being crazy? Who is the one who is being logically inconsistent?

If it is the case that we are so far off base regarding our Anthropology how can we expect to be right in other areas of our systematic theology?

Voddie Baucham Butchers the Biblical View of Race

Eph. 2:11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— 12 that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Quoting Voddie Baucham on this passage in a very bad sermon portion,

“He’s dividing the world … we see two groups here — gentiles in the flesh and the circumcision – Remember at that time you were (three things)

1.) you were without Christ,
2.) being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel
3.) and strangers from the covenants of promise


Because of that we had no hope and without God in the world.

Two things are are very important here

1.) It identifies the distinction that matter
2.) It identifies the division that exists.


Now these distinctions that matter are important because often times we talk about distinctions and we talk about being distinct from one another in terms of our race.

Baptized Church Member Lives Matter

“I used the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter’ in a social media post earlier this week. As happens each time I use the phrase, someone asks, ‘Why not just say “all lives matter?”’ Here is my quick response: When one of my four kids got hurt, it didn’t seem to make sense to say to them, ‘All my kids matter.’ In that moment, I embraced them and said, ‘You matter. Your pain matters. Your healing and return to health matters.’ That doesn’t diminish my love for my other kids. It expands my capacity to love as I live with another person’s pain.

Jesus did the same thing in his ministry. He didn’t say, ‘all people matter.’ He went to those who were hurting, who’d been denied a place at the table, who had been cast out of community and said ‘You Matter.’ Samaritans matter. Women matter. Tax collectors matter. Lepers matter. Did that mean he loved other people less? By no means. His life and ministry expanded the vision and capacity of his followers to love as they broke down the religious and cultural walls that had long divided people.”

Kai Nilsen


1.) When your child was hurting you didn’t hurt your other three children in order to relieve the pain of the one child that was hurting. “Black Lives Matter” as it works itself out, clearly implies and explicitly demonstrates, that in order for Black Lives to Matter, White Lives do not matter. I mean, it is not for no reason that small business owners are putting on signs in front of their buildings, “Black owned business.” The idea here is as Black Lives Matter don’t burn down this black business but rather find white businesses that don’t have this sign and burn those businesses to the ground.

2.) Black Lives Matter is a Marxist myth. If Black Lives Mattered then the organization Black Lives Matter would be burning down the Planned Parenthood facilities, the one place where it is being screamed that Black Lives are disposable.

3.) Jesus didn’t say, “all people matter,” because He understood that all people did not matter. He understood who His enemies were and He clearly pointed all His rhetoric and whip action at those people who didn’t matter. The idea that “all people matter” is a noxious weed that grows from the soil of “The Brotherhood of all Men,” and the “The Fatherhood of God over all Men.”

4.) The people that Jesus collected (Samaritans, Women, Tax Collectors, Lepers) were all people who had one thing in common. All these people who mattered (as Kai puts it) were people who were conversant with their sins or who needed to be brought face to face with their sins. Let me know when, in the context of all this Marxist mayhem, you find a member of Black Lives Matter who is conversant with their sins or who are willing to be brought face to face with their sins. They can start with “Thou Shalt Not Steal,” (As seen in their arson, looting, and pillaging.) Then they go on from there to the sin of envy. I guarantee you that at this very moment Jesus only thinks criminal lives Matter, as measured by His law, in the context of their repenting. If they refuse to repent these Black Lives Matter criminals are going to see just how well Jesus think their lives matter.

5.) The life and ministry of Jesus did indeed break down the walls that had long divided people. However, those walls were broke down so that the differing peoples might bow to Christ. Jesus does not love those who are outside of Christ. If White, Black, Brown, Yellow, and Red people will bow to Christ they can be sure that they are loved by Christ. However, as it is not possible for the true believers of Black Lives Matter to bow to Christ while remaining true believers of Black Lives Matter they can be sure that Christ and His true followers are their enemies.

Jesus hates Black Lives Matter as it is ideologically and theologically organized now. For Jesus, in terms of what men can know by looking, it is only Baptized Church Member Lives matter.

Revolutions and Irrationality

“Can you imagine scrolling past hundred and thousands of black Christians saying the same thing to find one or two black Chrsitian who say what you want to hear the way you want to hear it and thinking, ‘finally somebody gets it?’ We are not a monolith, but consensus matters.”

Dr. Esau McCauley — African-American
Assistant Professor NT Theology — Wheaton College

Can you imagine a putatively educated man arguing that we arrive at truth by counting noses? I mean, that is what consensus means. Consensus means that 50% + 1 = truth. By McCauley’s reasoning the consensus of the Jewish leadership proves authoritatively that Jesus was correctly crucified. By this reasoning the consensus of the English crown that the Americas must be forced to take slaves was correct. By this reasoning the consensus that the North was right for invading, raping, and pillaging the South was correct. By this reasoning the consensus among Revolutionaries that Lenin should come power was correct.

I have seldom come across a more stupid line of reasoning than Dr. McCauley’s that blacks like him should be listened to on their racial views simply because they are part of the black consensus that whitey is an evil racist.

Note, that McCauley’s lack of wisdom must be laid at the feet of Joel McDurmon likewise since McDurmon was supporting this “reasoning” on his social media platform.

Which brings me to a integrally related point and that is the use of irrationality as a motivating means for Revolution.

Marxist Revolutions are never logical or rational. Logic and rationality will never provide impetus to overthrow “the Man.” Marxist Revolutions are characterized by Alinskyite hackneyed mottos like “Forward,” and “Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity,” and, “As He died to make men Holy let us die to make men Free,” and “Eat the Rich,” and “Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer,” and “All Power to the Soviets.”

These memes/mottos if considered in light of cold logic express the height of torpidity. For example; Forward to where? How can men who are kept equal ever have liberty? Christ didn’t have to kill anybody to make men Holy. How does envy fill my stomach? Being united in wickedness is not a plus. If I give all power to the Soviets what power do I retain?

Still, there can be no doubt that any Revolution will lose its steam if it tries to rationally explain itself. Instead it goes for the knee jerk emotions that the simpletons, who are always the vast majority in any nation, can thrive on. The last thing that Revolutionaries want is for people to actually pause to think about what is happening.

And so we get the most asinine reasoning on all kinds of fronts because only asinine reasoning need apply to keep the rank and file continuing with their long march through the institutions. Here is another one I saw this morning.

Conservatives a month ago: “Why should we listen to the government and stay home? You are all sheep. This is a free country.”

Conservatives today: “If you just follow the Government mandated curfew, the paramilitary police storm troopers won’t shoot you in the face. It’s simple.”

“Ummm … Except a month ago criminals weren’t trying to burn my house down and do me bodily harm.”

The instinct is to ask the creator of the above meme, “Have you ever heard of the idea that there might be a time when the Government is not doing its job by illegally requiring law abiding citizens to stay inside while also there are times when the Government is doing is its job by legally catching the criminal class?”

The thinking man must reconcile himself with this absolute full throated irrationality. The thinking man has to realize that it will do little good to demand that people be rational in times of Revolution. We are in this position in Revolutionary America we are in precisely because irrationality is what is called for in this season.

So, the thinking man who is a counter-revolutionary must embrace the opposite irrationality of the irrationality of the revolutionary. The thinking man must use mottos and themes that he himself knows are irrational as a means of animating his supporters to stop the supporters of irrational revolutionary.

When the SHTF the last thing anybody wants to appeal to is rationality.



Responding to Rev. Jeff Durbin’s Virtue Signaling

“Racism is a real thing. It’s an abomination that deserves eternal punishment. I know it exists. I know people hate others because of the color of their skin. However, when we focus on the issue of color, and not justice, we influence people to make war with the opposite community and not against the injustice. The crime is no longer the focus. It’s no longer about making things right. It’s about strife between other groups. It’s about destruction. An image-bearer of God was murdered. This demands swift justice for all those involved and should set a clear warning to anyone who would engage in such a treacherous act that they will suffer the same consequence. Badge or no badge. This is the opportunity for the Church to rise up and say, “This is justice. Uphold this. These are the Words of God. Do this for every son or daughter of Adam.” There are two alternatives: Christ or chaos.

Our culture, for a long time now, has chosen the latter. Now, they are eating its choicest fruit.”


Pomo Rev. Jeff Durbin

1.) This is pure 100% virtue signaling on Durbin’s part. It seems that if one is in the ministry and doesn’t virtue signal about the evils of “racism” then they somehow are being untrue to their calling.

2.) If Racism is a real thing why are there no stable definitions that are not either self-refuting or self-contradictory? Racism is one of those words that means everything and so nothing. It is merely a word intended to heap false guilt on people. What is Racism Jeff? Please… give us a definition so we can work on whether or not it really is some kind of evil that Scriptures failed to explicitly mention. In my book, “Racism” is a contrived, elastic term that has no fixed meaning, other than to be used to de-legitimize and attack traditional, white Christian civilization.

3.)  Racism was popularized by radical bolshevik Leon Trotsky for the purpose in the early 20th century to advance the communist revolution and was popularized with the intent of creating division within Christendom by ladling false guilt on Christians who believed that love of one’s own people was perfectly legitimate. Durbin won’t win the battle by letting the devil set the terms of the debate.

Much of what is characterized as “racism” today is simply the normal, natural human preference for self-association with our own race. Are you a “racists” because you married someone of your own race? Because your children did? Because you live in a predominately white neighborhood and eschew the ghetto? In this sense, “racism” serves a very practical and effective role in making decisions about who to marry, where to live and what school to attend.

4.) I know of absolutely nobody who hates people solely because of the color of their skin. Oh, such people might exist but their numbers are so insignificant that they hardly merit mentioning. People like Durbin can’t seem to understand that race is about much more than skin color.

5.) Of course people want Justice. And if the officer in question (who is innocent until proven guilty) is convicted in a fair trial (something almost impossible to achieve now) then that officer should be greeted with the full force of penalty. I know of nobody who disagrees with that. So why is Durbin making such a point of the need for justice except to virtue signal.

6.) It is true that an image-bearer was murdered. That is horrific. However we note the integrity of Jeff’s virtue signaling. Now, was Jeff virtue signaling like this when in 2009 in Houston Tx. on the Ft. Hood military base a brown man murdered 9 White people in a shooting rampage. Did Jeff go public on that about the racism of brown people? Oh … and no riots followed.

Now, was Jeff virtue signaling like this when in 2015 a brown man unleashed a barrage of gunfire at two military facilities in Tennessee, killing four white Marines and wounding two other service members and a police officer. Did Jeff go public on that about the racism of brown people then? Oh … and no riots followed.

Now, was Jeff virtue signaling like this when in 2002 John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo — two black men — (known as the Beltway Snipers) had a plan to kill six white people a day. Though never reaching that goal on a day in and day out basis Muhammad and Malvo murdered 17 white people before they were caught. Did Jeff go public on that about the racism of black people then? Oh … and no riots followed.

Now, was Jeff virtue signaling like this when in December of 1993, a black male named Colin Ferguson walked down the aisles of a commuter train on the Long Island Railroad, shooting white commuters. Did Jeff go public on that about the racism of black people then? Oh … and no riots followed.

Now, was Jeff virtue signaling like this when on January 6, 2007 five black assailants carjacked and then kidnapped a white young couple by the names of Christopher Newsome and Channon Christian only to kill them later that evening in the most sadistic torturous way imaginable? Did Jeff go public on that about the racism of black people then? Oh … and no riots followed.

7.) Did Jeff lecture us on the need to demand “justice” when these other crimes of injustice were committed? When chaos reigned in the previous examples where was Jeff pleading for “Justice,” and against “Racism?”

It is just my opinion but I am of the opinion that when Durbin tacitly endorses the narrative of the guilty white man (as seen by conveniently leaving out the other side of the equation) I am of the conviction that Durbin is choosing chaos and is forcing Christians to eat the choicest fruit.

In the end Durbin needs to learn that “Racism,” is the ultimate word that means everything and nothing. When used it is not intended to convey any objective meaning but is used as a expletive deletive to pillory an opponent. Its intent is to shut down a conversation because if someone is a racist that means they don’t need to be heard.

However, “racist” is losing its power and it is beginning to be like the famous ad hiterlum logical fallacy.

Jeff and all of us have to remember that when Christ said “love your enemies” he envisioned hallowing the enemy so as to achieve a future reconciliation. Instead Christian White men like Jeff have taken this command as means to seek in our enemy the means of our own destruction.

In the words of Mark Collett in his “The Fall of Western Man,”

“The word ‘racist’ has turned Western man into a creature that can only be equated with a whipped dog. On the cry of that one word Western man rolls over and begs for mercy – just as an abused animal would. White guilt, self-hatred and the word ‘racist’ have been used to break the Western heart and subdue Western bravery and courage in order to prevent Western man from standing up in the defense of his own people. Western man is now so cowed that he dare not speak out against any foreign enemy or threat to his people for fear of being branded a ‘racist’.
