Christogenea Internet Radio, Friday October 23rd, 2015. A Critical Review of Israel's Fingerprints, by Bertrand Comparet.
Once again we are going to make a presentation from the sermons of Bertrand Comparet, and hope to offer both constructive criticism and also some clarification and edification of Comparet's work wherever we can. Doing this, we will also present the critical notes of Clifton Emahiser from his own publication of Comparet's work. These sermons were originally digitized by Jeanne Snyder, and then again by Clifton where he was compelled to offer several of his own remarks as appendices.
We have chosen to undertake this endeavor for two reasons. First, we as Identity Christians praise Yahweh our God with much gratitude for men like Bertrand Comparet, who helped to lead us to Christian Identity truth, and upon whose shoulders we stand. On the other hand, no man being perfect, we can honor our teachers but we cannot worship them. We do not see any man as infallible, and we put no man upon a pedestal. When a man cannot be criticized, when a man cannot be wrong, that is idolatry and not Christianity. All men being fallible, it is our obligation to test the work of our teachers, and, when we can, to correct, improve and build upon that work in order to bring this truth which we have ever closer to its perfection. We being men can not actually expect to achieve that perfection ourselves, but in our endeavors to do so we can improve and build upon what we have, while also hoping to correct the mistakes of those before us as well as our own.
With this in mind, any criticism we offer is not to tear down the work of our predecessors. Rather, it is to build upon and improve that work, so that our Identity understanding of the Gospel of Christ is found to be without reproach. As Paul of Tarsus said in Ephesians, by the washing of the water of the Word of God the assembly of Christ may be found holy and without blemish.
