Dawson, McAtee and the Chemical Compounds that Create Civilizations

“It is true that Europe was also a society of nations and that therefore the racial element, the bond of common blood, like the bond of common speech and common fatherland, played an important part in its development. But both civilization and nation are like chemical compounds which owe their very existence to their synthesis and any attempt to resolve them into their compound elements involves their destruction.”

Christopher Dawson
The Judgment of the Nations — pg. 143

Dawson’s warning is worthy of hearing. It is possible to distinguish the elements which comprise a nation or a civilization, breaking them down, for observational and analytical purposes, into their constituent parts of culture, faith, and race (or even more precisely; ethnicity) but there is a difference between making a distinction concerning these chemical compounds and seeking to isolate these chemical compounds as unrelated to the other impacting chemicals. For example, faith is a distinct chemical in this compound (sticking with Dawson’s analogy) but as culture, (as another distinct chemical) is the outward expression of a people’s inward beliefs, faith cannot be totally divorced from the discussion of culture, just as culture cannot be totally divorced from a discussion on the faith it is reflecting. As another example, the faith that is held and acted upon is the faith that exists in corporeal, material genetic people and who they are genetically impacts their faith just as their faith impacts their corporeality. As another example, culture is intimately related to ethnicity. Can anyone imagine the Japanese doing Cajun culture, or the South Sea Pacific Islander doing Cowboy Rodeo?

Faith, Ethnicity and Culture are all wrapped up together and the idea that these are all “social constructs” is something only a pure Gnostic or pure Materialist would argue. A pure Gnostic handles this by saying, “Change the thinking (the Theology / Ideology) around and presto change-o you can change Japanese civilization into a Civilization which speaks Cajun and eats gumbo. A pure Materialist handles this by saying, “change and rearrange the environment that the South Sea Islander lives in and he too will become a lasso twirling, tobacco chewing, bronco busting Cowboy.” It’s all so reductionistic. Twist a few knobs, and turn a few dials and we can re-make the world by our expertise at social engineering.

This is what the Alienist does. The Alienist doesn’t recognize the chemical compound that civilization and culture is and equipped with his Gnosticism or Materialism (and oddly enough sometimes both at the same time) the Alienist comes rushing in to break apart the chemical compound of which Dawson speaks. For the Alienist there is nothing supernatural about civilization and nations. For the Alienist they are simply the result of time plus circumstance plus chance. They are a social construct. Tinker around with the circumstance and you can produce anything you want. Hell, you can even produce men who need to have tampons in their bathrooms.

However the theo-ethno-cultural realist agrees with Dawson. There is something about civilizations and nations, resulting as they do from a combination of theology (faith), ethnicity, and culture that accounts for the differences in social orders. Further theo-ethno-cultural realists believe that, at least as it pertains to Christian cultures, that there is something about Christian cultures that has a supernatural air about them. They most certainly are not social constructs that can be understood solely by reading post-modern sociologists.

Like it or not, there is among individual people groups a common blood which in God’s ordination shapes and influences people groups as to who they are. Common blood is not the only reality that binds people together but it is an absolutely key component along with faith and culture. That is the compound of which Dawson speaks.

Just as man could not be man apart from both the dust of the earth and the breath of God so man cannot be man apart from both his ethnic identity and the kind of religion – spirituality that has possessed him and which he has possessed and the culture that those together produce.

All of this is basic Christianity. That is all it is and where people have a problem with it today they need to take it up with the Church Fathers, many of whom recognized this same dynamic, and before them with the eternal God who teaches it everywhere in Scripture.

A Conversation With The New Christianity

“Educated” 20 something,

You see, we are not afraid of words like socialism, homosexuals or Hollywood. We are cool with tattoos, doing a bit of yoga, drinking a bit of wine and hanging out with muslims and/or communists and/or people who would be “left behind.”

Conservative Pastor,

But you see that’s only because you’re unlearned. If you read Solzhenitsyn’s “Gulag Archipelago,” or “The Black Book of Communism,” or the record of what happened when Bela Kuhn took over Hungary you wouldn’t write drivel like, “we’re not afraid of socialism.”

Consistent with that if you had read the record of the San Francisco Bath-houses, or the doings in Roman Catholic Seminaries you’d be afraid of the sodomites. But you’re blissfully ignorant and so you think yourself enlightened by not being afraid of words like communism, sodomy, and Hollywood.

And as to Hollywood… once again you remain unlearned. You don’t know about Fatty Arbuckle who long predated Harvey Weinstein and who had the same kind of sexual appetite. You don’t know about the mass amount of pedophilia in Hollywood as testified to by child victim Corey Feldman. You don’t know about Hedy Lamar and the first onscreen orgasm. And so being unlearned you blather boldly about not being afraid of such words. It is easy to not be frightened about things you know precious little about.

‘Educated’ 20 something,

More than that, we believe in the message of the cross more than we believe in having a cross in every corner. We believe in God’s love for all humanity more than we believe in only Israel and America as God’s elect. We believe kindness and compassion are more powerful than fear and judgment. And we won’t vote conservative just because they say they are anti-abortion.

Conservative Pastor,

But Scripture explicitly teaches that God most certainly does NOT love all humanity. Please forgive us for not teaching you this when you were a child. God hates workers of iniquity. God hated Esau before He was even born. God is angry with the wicked every day. These are all testified to in Scripture.

I must congratulate you though in learning from us that God hates modern Israel much as he hates modern America. Why would God love a nation that murders over 1 million in utero babies annually?

I too believe in kindness and compassion but I apparently failed to teach you that when I show unbiblical kindness and compassion to the Christ hater, I have at the same time assayed unbiblical judgment on those I’m supposed to love. If I love the sodomite, I hate those whom the sodomite may eventually prey upon. And fear? You must be kidding? I don’t fear any of these Christ haters. I do feel sorry for them. I do want to protect the bride of Christ from them, but I have absolutely zero fear of them.

And in terms of your voting habits you mentioned, if I had my way you would not even be allowed to vote at all since it is not Biblical to give women the franchise since Scripture clearly teaches that women should not rule over men. Female voting is a way where women rule over men.

“Educated 20 something,”

To be properly pro-life for us means EVERY life.

The immigrant.

The refugee.

The man on death row.

Both the mother and the little one.

So we will preach more pro-humanity than anti-abortion. We will sing more pro-love than anti-sin. We will deny patriarchy, deny racism in all its forms, and deny any kind of hate to those who our different to us.

This is NOT rebellion against you.

Conservative Pastor,

Belly Laugh … NOT rebellion against us? Well, I suppose that you are not primarily in rebellion against us. You are primarily in rebellion and God and His Word.

Once again, this demonstrates how unlearned you are. You are in full rebellion mode and yet you insist that it is not rebellion. If you were learned you would know what words to use as labels because you are definitely rebelling against what you were taught. All because you don’t want to use the word rebellion doesn’t mean you are not involved in a high rebellion against what you were taught.

You can not be pro-life and be pro-illegal immigrant or refugee because for every illegal and refugee you allow in you threaten the life of an American. Or have you not seen the crime statistic associated with illegals and refugees?

The man on death row? It is an act of deep love to execute that man. Love to God who requires execution. Love to the family of the person he executed. Love to the social order since his execution stands as a warning post to others who might contemplate taking life. Finally, it is love to the man on death row who is being shown dignity by seeing that there are consequences to his actions.

And deny patriarchy? With that line, you just told me that you are not Christian. It is not possible to be anti-patriarchal and be Christian if only because God is “Our Father, who art in heaven.” Not patriarchal? Tell me, how much of God’s word do you have to cut up and burn in order to deny patriarchy?

This letter communicates how superior you think you are in your understanding of life but all I see in this letter is a deep commitment to hating the God of the Bible and His ethic.

The R2K Virus Spreads

This quote below is from a book co-written by the Pastor of Escondido Orthodox Reformed Church. It’s theology is not particularly wholesome in my estimation as I hope to demonstrate.

These chaps who wrote this are young guys. I’m sure they are full of good intentions. Unfortunately their mind were warped by the God forsaken “theology” taught at Westminster Seminary California. Doubtless, this “theology” was appealing to this Pastor as he had come out of a Dispensationalist past. The dispensationalistic flavor of much of R2K would be a good fit for someone whose mind has already been conditioned in that direction.

Now this Pastor is feeding this rot gut to his congregation. This is why I hate R2K so desperately. It is now infecting countless numbers of both congregations and seminaries. Young men who hear this “theology” get no lasting answers to larger questions and so the church not offering any answers young me turn to other dubious sources for truth that they are not getting from the R2K Churches. Some of these young men could easily get bad theology from these other sources.

Anyway on to the quote and analysis done by fisking.
_______

(1)”The doctrine of the new covenant guards us against triumphalism. (2)The new covenant shows us that the kingdom of God is no longer identified with any geopolitical nation on earth. (3)This is particularly critical to grasp in American culture, where there is a tendency to confuse the kingdom of God with the United States. (4)Americas, however, is not in covenant with God as a nation. (5) It had no representative on Mount Sinai. The only nation in covenant with God is God’s new global nation, that is, his new covenant church. (6) “But you are a chosen race,” says the apostle Peter, “a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” (1 Pet 2:9). (7) In the new covenant, the church is no longer limited to the physical descendants of Abraham but is made up of all the nations of the earth, people of every race, color, and language. (8) While the old covenant was an era of driving the nations out of God’s holy land, the new covenant is an era of believers living side by side with unbelievers in patience and love. (9) Today is the day of salvation, not judgment. (10) God’s judgment is delayed until his return. “(148)
________
Now we note the faults but before we do that keep in mind that this chap attended Westminster Escondido Seminary, the home of Radical Two Kingdom Theology. This quote reveals who taught our good Rev.

The numbers below correspond to the numbered sentences above.

Errors,

(1.) “The doctrine of the New Covenant guards against triumphalism.”

Right out of the gate Rev. Escondido tells us he is amillennial in his eschatology. God forbid that the Resurrected Christ who was crucified in space and time should Triumph over all the nations in space and time. THAT would be a horror. Keep in mind this theology is not happy unless it is being defeated. We don’t need no stinkin’ victory. Victory is for wussies. “Dear God in heaven keep the church from triumphing in your name and give us the glory of being fed to the lions and being turned into Nero’s living tiki torches.”

So, the initial statement that speaks to guarding against triumphalism begs the question, “Given your theology Rev. Escondido who will guard us against defeatism?”

(2.) With apologies to the Covenanters Solemn League and Covenant. Keep in mind the implication of this statement (2) is that there is no such thing as a Christian nation. If there is no such thing as a Christian nation then there is no such thing as a Christian family, as nations are merely extensions of families. In this view Nations are always pagan and can’t be anything but pagan.

Also on this one please note how the idea of the Kingdom of God is limited to being exactly synonymous with the “Church.” The Kingdom of God is restricted to the Church. As such nothing is part of the Kingdom of God that isn’t the Church. This means that no field, such as education, law, arts, etc. can be considered as having anything do with the Kingdom of God according to Rev. Escondido.

The devil is always in the details, aren’t they?

(3.) I actually agree with this statement. Anybody who thinks these united States are a Christian Nation is smoking peyote. I do believe at one time in our history we could have legitimately been considered a Christian nation but it has been decades since that was so. Ironically enough, in order to return to being a Christian nation, we would need to give Rev. Escondido’s covenant theology expressed here the good old double bird salute.

(4.) I know of no nation today which takes seriously God’s covenant. I do know that such nations existed in history. Now, as to whether or not America is in covenant with God, if one looks at our founding documents going back to the Mayflower compact and on to the original Charters and state constitutions one could well conclude that God still considers us in covenant and that we are now experiencing the judgments of Dt. 28f for not keeping our covenant promises.

(5.) The Ninevites who Jonah preached to also didn’t have representatives at Mt. Sinai and yet God held them accountable for violating His law and law is the major component of the covenant. Nebuchadnezzar also didn’t have a representative at Mt. Sinai and yet God held him accountable for violating His law. Sorry, Rev. Escondido, this “reasoning” is specious and does not work. Theoretically, nations could be in covenant with God if they were to bow to His Law and authority. Note also an implication here. If no nation can be in covenant with God then neither can any family be in covenant with God. As such, per this theology, there is no such thing as “Christian families.”

(6.) Quoting Peter proves nothing except the Church is now the Israel of God. It doesn’t disprove that a family, people group, or nation can’t be in covenant with God.

(7.) Right, and every people, in every race, culture, and language in their race, culture, and language can be in covenant with God AND also be the one people of God in their varied people group expressions.

(8.) Says who? That’s not the way the Reformers thought. They explicitly taught that the Christian magistrate had a responsibility to suppress wickedness as defined by God’s law. As one example of my patience and love, when I patiently wait for sodomy to be criminalized again I am acting with love towards unbelievers in Christ. Christians do not live side by side with unbelievers in patience and love if by patience and love it is meant that Christian should not advocate for God’s definition of Justice in our legal code. I know this is contrary to what they taught your at R2K seminary Rev. Escondido. For Pete’s sake one of their rock stars (Mike Horton) even said,

“Although a contractual relationship denies God’s will for human dignity, I could affirm domestic partnerships as a way of protecting people’s legal and economic security.”

I’m pretty sure this would be an example of your living side by side with pagans with patience and love. If so, I say you contracted ‘idiotitis’ from Horton.

(9.) So much for,

Romans 1:18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness,

Heidelberg Catechism Q. 10.

Q.) Will God suffer such disobedience and rebellion to go unpunished?

A. By no means; but is terribly displeased (a) with our original as well as actual sins; and will punish them in his just judgment TEMPORALLY and eternally, (b) as he has declared, “Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things, which are written in the book of the law, to do them.” (c)

Now keep in mind that the implication of (9) is that capital punishment as warranted by Scripture would be wrong since this is a time of salvation and not judgment.

(10.) Really? Tell Servetus that.

The Goodness of God in Utterly Destroying the Canaanites






‘When the LORD your God brings you into the land which you go to possess, and has cast out many nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you, and when the LORD your God delivers them over to you, you shall conquer them and utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant with them nor show mercy to them. Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son. For they will turn your sons away from following Me, to serve other gods; so the anger of the LORD will be aroused against you and destroy you suddenly. But thus you shall deal with them: you shall destroy their altars, and break down their sacred pillars, and cut down their wooden images, and burn their carved images with fire. “For you are a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.

Deuteronomy 7:1-6


People will stumble over this passage where God commands the destruction (Cherem) of the inhabitants of the land of Canaan and if they don’t stumble over the passage they try to use it as a club to beat Christianity over the head, as if there is something unseemly in God’s command to utterly eliminate all the inhabitants of Canaan – man, woman, and child.

Keep in mind that this eventual cleansing of the land was long anticipated. Early on in Genesis Abraham is told, in reference to the land that his people will one day inherit, that the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.” Finally, hundreds of years later, the iniquity of the Amorites was complete and God ordered His troops to destroy the Canaanites.

What was that iniquity of the Canaanites which was a cup that finally overflowed that had to be ended? We get the answer to that in Leviticus 18 and 20. There we learn the perversity and twistedness of the Canaanites that found them being vomited out of the land by their complete destruction.

Leviticus 18 & 20 teaches us that the Canaanites were

Perverted in their sexuality as they

Uncovered the nakedness of mom, dad, sister, brother, aunt, uncle etc. (the most perverse forms of incest).
– Bedded a male as with a woman (Man lies with man).
– Bedded animals.
– Committed adultery with neighbor’s wife
– Bedded fathers wife.
– Bedded daughter in law.
– Married both a Mother and her daughter.
– Bedded one’s own sister.
– Bedded a woman on her period
– Bedded Sister-in-law

Perverted in their humanity as they

– Offered their own chidren to the false God Molech (i.e.They bbq’d their children on the altar of Molech – the fruit of their body for the sin of their soul)

– They cursed their Mothers and Fathers

Perverted in their Religion

– Turned to mediums and familiar spirits.

The summation then is;

“The land(of Canaan/Amorite) is defiled… all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land (Canaan/Amorite) is defiled””You shall not walk in the statues of the nation (Canaan/Amorite) which I am casting out from before you; for they commit all these things, and therefore I abhor them.”

These were twisted people and after generations of culture and breeding they had this behavior in their genes as well as reinforced by their culture. For that reason God deems them worthy to be destroyed. These people, if allowed to live in the land, would be a contagion which would infect Israel. (A thing that happened eventually anyway since Israel did not completely wipe out all the Canaanites.)

People need to keep in mind that Canaan was to be like the garden of Eden. Israel, as a subsequent Adam was being placed back in the garden and there in Canaan the Lord would reign over Israel, with the promise that God’s blessing would radiate out from Canaan to the whole world. As such the Canaanites were to Canaan what the Serpent was to the garden. Since Canaan was to be Eden rediscovered the vile serpent seed Canaanites were to be treated just as Adam should have treated the first serpent. So you see here one reason why the cleansing of the Canaanites — every man, woman, and child – was a righteous duty that glorified God and so perfectly reasonable.

People have trouble realizing how wicked and animalistic the Canaanites were. One analogy I am aware of is what Hernan Cortez discovered upon being introduced to the Aztecs. Cortez found in the Aztecs a people who were both at the same time cultured (canals, gardens, and Temples) and demonic. The Aztecs ruled over 500 smaller peoples. From these smaller people groups the Aztecs drew, as tributary, a stream of blood as rendered up by a conveyor belt of men and boys whose hearts were cut out of their bodies while they were still alive in order to satisfy the blood lust of their gods. One especially egregious example of the appetite of the Aztec gods was the re-dedication of the Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlan in 1487. In this ceremony 84,400 prisoners for sacrifice were offered up over four days.

Further, the Aztecs were a cannibal people. They dined on the arms and legs of the multitude of sacrifices offered up every year. Word is that they especially enjoyed leg of human as garnished with tomatoes and chili peppers.

Do you suppose any of the people groups who were subject to Aztec control shed any tears when their Empire was destroyed by Hernan Cortes and the Spaniards? Instead those captive peoples likely partied that such a dreadful enemy had been destroyed.

In the same way instead of condemning God or being puzzled by a God who would order complete destruction upon such a wicked people as the Canaanites we should rejoice that such a people were eliminated. No longer would they be killing their seed. No longer would their perversity cover the land. No longer would their sexual perversity continue from generation to generation. No longer would they consult mediums and worship darkness. The destruction of these people is good news, and hardly the stuff that should cause us to question God’s goodness. Indeed, in point of fact it was the goodness of God that ordered the extermination of the Canaanites. We should lead with this history in our evangelism. God is so good that he exterminated the Canaanites, that He destroyed the Aztec Empire. See how good God is.

There are a couple other observations to put forward so as to clear God’s name in His excellent decision to wipe out the Canaanites.

First, we would ask why anybody thinks that they have a claim on God’s mercy. The surprise in the Canaanite Cherem is not that the Canaanites were exterminated. No, the surprise is that every man, woman, and child inhabiting the globe wasn’t exterminated. Man is a rebel who is owed nothing by His creator. Indeed the only thing rebel man is owed by God is complete and utter destruction. The Canaanites received what we all deserve and the fact that we don’t get what we deserve should deliver us from indicting God for doing with His own whatever He determines. Instead we should say, when looking at the Cherem (Destruction) of the Canaanites, “There but for the grace of God go I.”

Secondly, and similarly, it is a curious phenomenon that fallen man thinks he has the place to put God in the dock, charging Him with the crime of genocide by our twisted standard of justice. The fact that anyone could charge God with wrongdoing for ordering the wholesale slaughter of the Canaanites reveals that they themselves have a heart of a Canaanite. God doesn’t answer to us. God doesn’t need to provide a defense of His actions to us. If the Canaanites were only guilty because God said they were guilty that would be reason enough for them to be wiped out. The Canaanites, like us today, remain the clay to God as the Potter. The Potter has no need to explain Himself to the clay. However, God did explain Himself for His orders to destroy Canaan, and the explanation was that they were serpent seed and as serpent seed who were wicked beyond naming, they had to go.

All of this should serve as a warning to us. The West has taken up some of the habits of the Canaanites and the Aztecs after them. We are offering up our children to Molech by way of abortion. We are institutionalizing sexual perversity in the same kind of directions as the Canaanites before us. Indeed, we are even moving beyond incest, bestiality, and sodomy to sex with sexatronic life sized dolls. We now sanction and celebrate the “marriage” of Butt-buddies. The consulting of mediums is on the rise and we are building statues to Satan and placing them in the public square and calling it enlightened. Whereas the Aztecs sacrificed by their 10,000’s we sacrifice our children by way of millions.

I pray daily that the West would repent before their own cup of iniquity has filled and we receive the just punishment of Canaan – every man, woman, and child.

This is our season to turn turn turn. Now is the appointed time. God commands all men everywhere to repent. Instead of going further out, and deeper in to our own personal sin as well as our institutional and cultural sins will we not cast our all upon the only one by whom we can have peace with God. Instead of continuing to carry this sin and guilt will we not discover the grace that is found in God’s provision of one who would, as our substitution …as the one who stood in our place and so close with Christ? Will we not own as our own the truth that Christ took upon Himself the wrath of the Father that belongs to us? Will we not find in Jesus Christ’s death our life? Will we not be amazed that despite our Canaanite and Gomorrah-ish personal behavior and cultural-Institutional behavior that we can still be reconciled to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

You want to see the love, mercy, and kindness of God? It is found in the reality that even now He has not yet brought the judgment of the Canaanites upon us and our people. God is longsuffering not willing that any of His people should perish. He is commanding now for you to bow and offer up allegiance and He will extend clemency to you on the basis of the finished work of Jesus Christ. His word now to you latter day Canaanites is to kiss the Son, lest His anger flash and you perish in the way as those Canaanites did long ago.


O Canaanite, if you ignore this Word you will die.



Hating America?

One thing that begins to happen when one becomes saturated in non-court History and Historians is the polished veneer begins to come off your own place of origin. The left does this all the time insisting that America is a sinful nation because of the way it has treated women, or because of the way it has treated slaves, or because of its past colonialism overseas or because of how the putative Robber Barons treated their employees, thus cutting a jag on Capitalism. Reading pig slop like Howard Zinn’s book “A People’s History of the United States” or Steven J. Keillor’s “This Rebellious House: American History and the Truth of Christianity,” or Alan Guezlo’s “Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President,” the left becomes saturated in anti-history and so see’s America as a country has always done the devil’s work and so must be remade into the left’s image.

The problem with the left is that most of their criticisms of America of this nature are merely some type of warmed over Marxist historiography. The left hates America because it hasn’t been a Marxist country and their hatred for the country will only be lifted once statues of Marx and Lenin are placed alongside the statue of Martin Luther King.

But, what about the Biblical Christian? Does he ever begin to seen the veneer come off his birth of origin? I would answer resoundingly yes. Indeed, I would answer so vigorously “yes,” that I would say that the Biblical Christian ought to hate America just as all reasonable people rightfully hate Dracula. Now, keep in mind that saying “I hate America,” is not the same as saying, “I hate each and every American.” The hate spoken of here is what the America as a country has done and while that certainly has to include many, and perhaps even most Americans it does not include all Americans. Many Americans over the decades have fought the good fight against those who have been constantly clawing to turn this country into the beehive and the anthill.

However, I don’t hate America for the same reasons the left does. Indeed I hate America because the Marxists have been so successful in their project to remake America. I hate the America of Lincoln, Wilson, and the Roosevelts because I love the America of Washington, Jefferson, and Coolidge. So I hate America for the exact opposite reasons that the left hate’s America. I hate America because America has become so Marxist while the left hates America because it isn’t yet Marxist enough. I hate the America that is because I love the America as she was created to be.

Recently, I made this declaration above in a setting that found people bewildered at such a sentiment and asking for precision and specificity over why I would say such a thing. Below, is just a beginning of why I say, “I hate America, and so should all Biblical Christians.”

Since 1973 America, under the flag of legality, as killed fifty million babies in the one place where one would think is the safest place in the cosmos. Fifty million people. The number is so large that it is beyond the ability to really think about. Since 1973 we have killed approximately 1/5 of our current population. How can a Christian not hate a country that has allowed for such a thing?

In 1944 and 1945, first at Tehran, and then at Yalta America turned over countless Millions of people in Eastern and Central Europe to the butchering Satanist communists (Tehran and Yalta). Similarly, our actions in China effectively turned over that whole nation to the Communists. (See George Crockers, “FDR’s Road to Yalta,” and John T. Flynn’s “The Roosevelt Myth,” and “Blacklisted by History,” by M. Stanton Evans — especially as he deals with figures such as Lauchlin Currie, and Owen Lattimore). How can a Christian not hate a country that pursued such a foreign policy course that resulted in Communism covering major portions of the globe and resulted in the deaths of countless tens of millions?

Prior to that there was the bloody disaster that was our involvement in WW I and then the Versailles treaty that led to WW II. (See two volumes by Docherty and MacGregor… “Hidden History: The Secret Origins of the First World War,” and “Prolonging the Agony: How The Anglo-American Establishment Deliberately Extended WWI by Three-and-a-Half Years,” and “How Britain Initiated both World Wars,” by Nick Kollerstrom. America by wrongly involving herself in World War I is responsible for the death of American lads, and for creating such a mess on the global stage that the Communists were able to take over Russia. Further America is responsible (along with other players) for aiding the destruction of European Christendom. How can a Christian out of love for those who perished so needlessly not hate the country responsible for that?

What else might we say, as reasons for hating America?

We dropped two atomic bombs on Japan when they were already agreeing, 6 months prior to the eventual peace deal, that ended up being the same peace deal that was eventually signed after the bombings. (See Herbert Hoover’s “Freedom Betrayed.”) The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were war crimes committed by America. How can one not hate a country that does such a thing?

Then there are the million unarmed Germans that Eisenhower and the Allies killed in prison camps after WW II not to mention the human reparations that were sent to the USSR to die in their work Gulags. (See “Other Losses” by James Bacque and Nikolas Tolstoy’s “The Secret Betrayal.”)

There is, of course much more. This is merely a beginners plate that explains why a Christian might justly hate America. The Christians love for righteousness and justice makes one see all the unrighteousness, injustice, not to mention death and suffering, and so burns with loathing for a country that is responsible for all this death and mayhem. And it burns with loathing also for the left which hates America for the exact opposite reasons.
