In Defense of Christianity
by Marc Moran

November 5, 2002

It has been said repeatedly with regard to White Nationalism that Christianity is a liability to our purpose and our goals. That the belief in a God made flesh who died upon a cross in a backwater of the Roman Empire is without merit in a 21st-century world.

While such positions are surely reinforced by the actions of organized religion, particularly the efforts of Lutherans who are bound and determined to flood our Nation with young men from darkest Africa, and a Catholic Church orthodoxy that refuses to control homosexuality and pedophilia within the ranks of its clergy, there are valid arguments that should be made in defense of Christianity.

The Bible is one of the greatest written works of man. It encompasses not only the history of the early tribal peoples of the Mediterranean and North African sphere, but the rise and the fall of dynasties, kingdoms, and empires. It contains poetry whose beauty has never been surpassed, as well as the framework for legal systems and moral codes that exist to this day. Within the pages of the Gospels, the greatest story ever told, there are dire warnings and portents for those who fail to keep an eye out for the greatest enemy of our people, the Jew.

While organized religion has focused on sanitizing the life story of the Savior by repeatedly deleting and excising textual references to the threat of the Jew, nothing short of the removal of the Bible from the public realm can alter passages like this:

John 18:36

Jesus answered, 'My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews.'

Or this:

John 20:19

Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, 'Peace be unto you.'

And this:

Matthew 23:33-34

Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

Wherefore behold, I send unto you prophets and wise men and scribes and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them ye shall scourge in your synagogues and persecute them from city to city.

You'd have to do one hell of a lot of spinning to change the tone of the preceding passages and divert someone's attention away from the guilty party. The warnings within the gospels are made directly to the Jews based upon their failed relationship with God. What is often overlooked, if not intentionally covered up, is the fact that it was the Jews who abrogated their end of the covenant with God, not the other way around. The recent pronouncement by the Vatican that Jews no longer need to believe in Christ in order to be saved is merely a dodge by yet another group of disciples hiding behind locked doors, albeit gold-plated ones, for fear of the Jews.

Most people who believe in a Christian God do not necessarily study the Bible.

They may be familiar with certain passages, may find comfort in the reading of the 23rd Psalm for example, but they fail to read the entire work analytically. The Bible is not the story of the Jews, as some have suggested, it is the story of God and His relationship with man. It would be naive to attempt to clarify further just who God is, but it is certainly something that nearly all humans have an experience with; a deep-seated need, a hunger or desire as strong as any other we possess, to understand our relationship with the Creator. Something set the process we think of as Nature or Life into motion, and failing to acknowledge the very human need to relate to, worship or otherwise communicate with this force, denies our natural inclination as living beings. When we crave food, or drink or affection, we do not laughingly deny that such things exist because those desires cannot be weighed or measured. We acknowledge the needs of our bodies, and our minds, why not our souls?

Christ-centered faith resonates with Western man because it is based upon a dynamic God who is, like the earlier Gods of the Norsemen, the Greeks and the Romans, human in form rather than an inanimate god, like the Sun or an appetite god, like greed or lust. The form of Christ is also a powerful reminder that man is not only locked in a struggle with Nature, but with the body politic, fellow man, and his governing bodies. Christ stood up to not only the Church of his time, but to an Empire as well. There are lessons to be learned from a God made flesh who, lacking not only an army and a means of self-defense, was able to defeat and eventually transcend both His enemies and His era, as well.

The figure of Jesus upon the cross has been ridiculed before, first by the Jews who condemned Him* and since then by the enemies of morality and accountability. That image however is one not of a weak and defeated man, but a courageous and self-sacrificing God who would lay down his own life in order to save His people, a lesson that should resonate with White Nationalists everywhere.

The Bible contains not only a foundation for a well-ordered and civil society; it does so in as few words as possible. Unlike the volumes it takes to cover something as simple as our domestic tax laws, a single book has managed to encompass the schematics for a successful life, family, community and Nation. At the same time it does not shirk the inhuman or sinful behavior of man, covering everything from slavery and slaughter to incest and fratricide and the results of those acts of free will. If there is a human emotion, action or crime not covered within the pages of that single volume, it is likely one of no consequence.

Religion, Marx said, is the opiate of the masses. While it would be foolish to take the word of a Jew bent on the destruction of Western Man, his point is one worth making. Religion in and of itself serves the singular function of establishing as a class people who derive their livelihood from those who adhere to the message they proclaim.

Faith is another matter entirely. It requires no middleman, no explanation or interpretation. It merely requires that the believer believe, with all his heart, all his mind, and all his soul.

As Christ Himself explained, "Behold, the kingdom of God is within you." Religion is no more than the coming together of those who share the same belief, and in that gathering, the opportunity for corruption arises. Just as politics attracts those who are the most likely to become politically corrupt, religion attracts those who are prone to spiritual corruption. This is not to say, of course, that there aren't those whose motives are pure and whose intentions are noble. Those who do enter religious orders to improve the spiritual lot have added immeasurably to the lives of their fellow man. It is worthy of note that their numbers have dwindled, as the revisionist, or Judeo-Christianity, of the past fifty years has consumed the true message of Christianity.

There are further advantages to the White Nationalist in remaining firm in his or her faith. The community of those who share similar values, the support of the ever-eroding family and the mutually beneficial encouragement of one to another, not for profit or gain, but simply as an expression of our inherent altruism, an undeniably racial trait of Whites.

Christianity, like so many of our formerly noble and revered institutions and beliefs, has been seized by an enemy who cares little if we survive -- indeed, who appears to be bent upon our very destruction, while thriving in the climate of morality and decency that is our birthright.

Jesus may have been born in Nazareth, but He was the embodiment of a God who defies time and place. His message of Love and forbearance echoes the very soul of our own people. This, more than anything was what set Him apart from the Jews of His day. It was this expression of human ideals that signed His death warrant twenty centuries ago, and keeps His message alive, for those who believe, even today.

As a consolation and a charge I look to the words of Jesus Himself whenever someone quotes to me, out of context, without the slightest inkling of the broader meaning in Christ's message, "Judge not lest ye be judged?"

As Christ himself said,

"Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye discern not this time?

Yea and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?"

Amen.

* The recitation of the Apostles' Creed states that Jesus Christ "suffered under Pontius Pilate." However the following passage from John 19:40 seems to discredit that interpretation:

Pilate saith unto Him, 'What is truth?' and when he had said this he went again unto the Jews and saith unto them, 'I find in Him no fault at all.'

This passage clearly places the burden of Jesus' punishment not upon a Roman Prelate, but upon the members of Christ's own Nation, the Jews. How this has been successfully covered up is beyond comprehension, but is telling nonetheless.
