Not living by God’s law makes one, over time, mad. As we have noted before and as Scripture teaches

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20

There comes a point when the one who has abandoned God’s Law-Word where they begin to call God’s curses as good and God’s blessings as bad. They see the rising of the Alien as a positive good and the sinking of their own people as likewise good. And so they even begin to pursue that course.

We see it in the Old Testament when they began bringing the false foreign Gods into the temple. We see it in the OT when they began to embrace their own destruction of themselves by sacrificing their children to foreign gods.

2 Chronicles 28:3

Moreover, Ahaz burned incense in the Valley of Hinnom and sacrificed his sons in the fire, according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had driven out before the Israelites.

Jeremiah 7:31

They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Hinnom so they could burn their sons and daughters in the fire–something I did not command, nor did it enter My mind.

Jeremiah 19:5

They have built high places to Baal on which to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal–something I never commanded or mentioned, nor did it ever enter My mind.

In all these cases they were embracing the curse to be destroyed and eschewing the blessing of God to be the head and not the tail.

This embracing of being the tail and not the head. This embrace of delighting in being sunk lower and lower in one’s own land. This delight in being destroyed by the Alien we might call Alienism.

Alienism might be defined as the glorification and absolutizing of the stranger, the outsider, the abnormal and the corresponding denigration and hatred of the native born, the majority, the normal.

Alienism: is a prejudice in favor of the alien, the marginal, the dispossessed, the eccentric, reaching an extreme in the attempt to “build a new society” by destroying the basic institutions of the native. The most terrible fulfillment of this principle is Communism which we now see as Cultural Marxism and Political Correctness. The goal of extreme Alienism is just what we find in Deuteronomy 28 – the destruction of the Historic Christian, Historic Christianity and the pulling down of Christ off His throne

Alienism, in a phrase coined by Robert Conquest, is the “residual muck of Marxism-Leninism.”

Alienism, that glorification of the abnormal, the stranger, the misfit and marginal has become a governing force in our social order pursuit today. This Universal Otherization of the normative embraces the derelict over the responsible and offers malcontents and the envious a hermeneutical platform to justify their interpretation of reality where the normative is guilty of oppressing the abnormal for merely insisting that abnormal is not normal, for insisting that the immoral is not moral, and for not mainstreaming that behavior which heretofore had been considered taboo. For the practitioners of social order Alienism oppression has been introduced where boundaries have been drawn between what is normative and what is non-normative.

And so, because of this the non-Western immigrant is loved over one’s own children as seen in the willingness to turn over the children’s Fatherland to the stranger and the alien.

Because of this Alienism our people have become convinced that adoption of the offspring of the stranger and alien is a more noble enterprise than the bearing of one’s own children. A family that has all the earmarks of a United Nations meeting is automatically deemed as more holy than a family that is boringly all White and Christian. This is not to say that adoption is evil. It is to say that adoption of the alien and stranger done on a large-scale basis is not without its downside for the broader social order.

Because of this Alienism the visible church in the West is now a refuge for clergy who think it was a blessing when God warned Israel that “the aliens who reside among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower.” This is seen by the rush of the visible Church to shed itself of its whiteness in order to invest Cultural Marxist minorities with authority over the White Euro-American Christian simply because “it’s not fair for the White Euro-American Christian to have authority over the Institutions that he himself established.” Modern Churchmen have no problem whatsoever with the Hmong or the Koreans, or the Chinese having their own congregations and even Presbyteries but somehow when the original stock Americans say that they might prefer their own congregations then suddenly the nebulous sin of “racism” is immediately leveled.

And because Alienism — that glorification of the stranger, the abnormal, the outsider — is on the rise Western man is headed to his grave delighted that he could snuff himself out for the sake of integrating downward into the void. So convinced is Western man of the nobility of a ideological, alien, and immoral diversity that Western man is ashamed of the quaint notion of righteous “historic stock” Christians having their own culture and geography.

Because of Alienism we are dancing on the edge of the abyss and it is a dance that we feverishly enjoy and we will be full of laughter and gaiety when we finally fall over the edge. Reality will not hit until our falling turns into landing.

What can stop all this? Only a return to Christ. Politics isn’t the ultimate answer, though surely a people returning to Christ will desire to practice Christian politics. Only by repenting for loving the pagan Alien more than our Christian children, only by repenting for interpreting God’s word as being an expression of the works of Karl Marx or Antonio Gramsci, only by repenting that Christ is a Jacobin Revolutionary storming the Bastille can we be set free from being the tail, from sinking lower and lower, from being destroyed. Only by taking up the Cross can we eschew the Hammer and Sickle.

We can be forgiven for being squeezed into the World’s mode. There is abundant mercy for those who plead forgiveness. There is sanctification for those begging to think God’s thoughts after Him. There is endurance and perseverance for those who will fight the good fight and so fight against both the enemy outside the Church and the fifth column within the Church.

May God grant all of within the sound of my voice repentance.
