Chambers Gives Us Another Slightly Different Take on Wilson’s Nigerian Anglian Woman

I think that after listening to the criticisms leveled at Doug Wilson for his view that he has more in common with a Nigerian Anglican woman than with his white pagan neighbor, it is quite likely that (Doug) the wordsmith will come back and say that he was speaking qualitatively rather than quantitatively. That he is speaking of importance rather than numbers. That a shared faith is more important than all other considerations. And I think that both parties are missing an element of covenant, i.e. that the Caucasian race is a covenant people. It is the Caucasian that took the Gospel from Asia Minor into Russia and across Europe and eventually to the Americas and reaped the blessings associated with it. Western culture, by which all the world has benefited is the product of the Caucasian Christian mind. Discipling the nations has been quite as Kipling described it, the White Man’s Burden, and we have been blessed with the promises of Deut. 28 because of our faithfulness. Who can deny it? We are a covenant people and there is a shared covenant bond between each of us and the members of our race as a whole. But the modern western church has a truncated individualistic view of covenant and no longer thinks in broad covenantal terms. Even the unity of the family, the basic building block of culture, is being obliterated. One need only look at the second half of Deut 28 to see it. The alien will rise higher and higher while we sink lower and lower. They will be the head and we will be the tail. We were blessed as a covenant race and now like Esau, having rejected our birthright, we are being likewise judged for our apostasy.

Israel is our example. When the alien was in the land he was subject to the stipulations of God’s law and reaped both its benefits and punishments. He was treated fairly. And though the alien could claim and serve the true God, there was a distinction drawn. He was not allowed to own land, he could not rule, and Israel was forbidden to go after foreign wives. Inter-marriage was not allowed. Why do we imagine that things are different now? Yes we share Christ with all those who bow the knee but that does not eliminate all the other God ordained distinctions. He set the boundaries of the habitations of all peoples. Who do we think we are to violate them?

It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture. Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.
