Christian Socialism

A Christogenea commentary On the Gospel of John is now in progress. Many passages simply do not say what the modern churches think they mean! Don't miss this important and ground-breaking work proving that Christian Identity is indeed fully supported by Scripture.

Don't miss our ongoing series of podcasts The Protocols of Satan, which presents many historical proofs that the infamous Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion are real, and that they have been fulfilled in history by the very same people who dispute their authenticity. Our companion series, The Jews in Medieval Europe, helps to explain how the Protocols have been fulfilled.

 Our recent Pragmatic Genesis series explains the Bible from a Christian Identity perspective which reconciles both Old and New Testaments with history and the political and social realities facing the Christian people of Yahweh God today.

A Commentary on the Epistles of Paul has recently been completed at Christogenea.org. This lengthy and in-depth series reveals the true Paul as an apostle of God, a prophet in his own right, and the first teacher of what we call Christian Identity.

Don't miss our recently-completed series of commentaries on the Minor Prophets of the Bible, which has also been used as a vehicle to prove the historicity of the Bible as well as the Provenance of God.

The word socialism is a dirty word in many Christian Nationalist and other so-called conservative or right-wing circles today. There are two reasons for that. First, for over a hundred years and until this very day the word has been used as a euphemism for Marxism and for Bolshevik Communism – if the two may be distinguished because the practice was even much more sinister than the theory. This use of socialism as a euphemism for Marxism and Communism seems to have been preponderated by the Jewish media, in order to conceal the true nature of these Jewish ideologies. However the word socialism and the original ideas that it once represented are much older than Marxism, and bear little real resemblance to it. Secondly, many Christian Nationalists are still locked into the Jewish Capitalist-vs-Communist dichotomy and have trouble thinking on any other terms. So long as they stay there, they shall never be a threat to the intentions of the Jew since both modern Capitalism and modern Communism are inventions of the Jew. The Capitalist system has enabled World Jewry to slowly feed off of the labor and resources of the nations which admit it, while the Communist system has enabled World Jewry to rapidly subsume the resources and the lifeblood of those nations which become its victims. The Capitalist system is designed to infiltrate, corrupt and control nations with pliant rulers or other malleable systems such as parliamentary democracies, and the Communist system has seized power violently wherever firm rulers do not allow the Capitalist system to gain control. It is Capitalists, the international Jewish bankers, who have financed Communism wherever it has appeared, as retribution against nations wherever the rule of those bankers is rejected. When either system fails to seize a nation, then the international Jew wages war against it from the outside through those nations which he does control. Such was the case in Europe in the Second World War. 

From the ashes of the old feudal system which the French Revolution destroyed for good arose many theories of political and economic organization among thinking men, most of whom were schooled in the philosophers of the Enlightenment. One such theory was national socialism, which was actually postulated by French philosophers a century before Adolf Hitler put such a theory into practice in Germany. Marx did not create socialism. Rather, he pilfered it, and used the label as a euphemism for his Talmudic perversion. Other systems, such as syndicalism and fascism, were based upon this original socialism in one degree or another. Yet Christian Nationalists, primarily because of the way in which the Jewish theorists and their media have poisoned the term, and also because of their own entrapment in the Jewish Capitalist-vs-Communist dichotomy, have also failed to notice that as it was originally conceived socialism had Christian foundations. Furthermore, National Socialism as it was implemented by Adolf Hitler's Germany was based entirely upon Christian principles, and it is absolutely contrary to Marxism. So long as Christians remain inside the box which the Jewish political theorists have constructed for them, they will forever remain blind and obedient slaves to the world's foremost usurers and pillagers.

The following passages from the Book of Acts demonstrate Christian community, from the King James Version:

Acts 2:42-47: “42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”

Acts 4:32-37: “32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. 34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. 36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus, 37 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.”

Here the example of true Christian communion is given, to which must be compared Josephus’ account of nearly identical practices among the Essenes, found in his Wars of the Judaeans, 2.8.2-3 (2:119-122).

Josephus, Wars of the Judaeans, 2:122: “These men [the Essenes] are despisers of riches, and so very communicative as raises our admiration. Nor is there anyone to be found among them who has more than another; for it is a law among them, that those who come to them must let what they have be common to the whole order,--insomuch that among them all there is no appearance of poverty or excess of riches, but everyone's possessions are intermingled with everyone's possessions; and so there is, as it were, one patrimony among all the brethren.”

Aside from being socialist, Christianity is also nationalist - as we discussed here in the June, 2012 Saxon Messenger editorial of a similar title. That it is indeed nationalist can be demonstrated where fornication, of which race-mixing is one form, is forbidden Christians in Acts Chapter 15. That race-mixing is a form of fornication is readily demonstrated from Jude 7 and from 1 Corinthians chapter 10 where Paul explicitly warns against it and references a race-mixing event from the Old Testament in order to substantiate his warning. Christianity must be nationalist, since Christ professed coming “but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 15:24) and since, as Paul explains in Romans chapter 4, the nations of the promise are only those nations which sprang from the seed of Abraham, which he identifies throughout his epistles. If Christianity is nationalist, then Christian community must also be nationalist. The Essenes, as Josephus attests elsewhere, were also nationalists. While the sects of the Pharisees and Sadducees sought proselytes, the Essenes were the only Judaean sect which required its members to be Judaean by birth, where the Greek word genos means ethnic birth and not geographical birth. The translator, William Whiston, would have done better to write “Judaeans by race”.

Christians are told to reject those who have rejected Christ, and therefore neither should Christian community nor Christian fellowship be extended to non-Christians. From the epistles of John, where the apostle was speaking in the context of the Roman world of his time:

2 John 9-11: “ 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

The word common as it appears above in Acts 2:44, and at 4:32, is from the Greek word koinos, which is “common, shared in common, opposed to idios ...common to or with another...common to all the people, public, general...” (Liddell & Scott). This word koinos is related to the word which was translated as fellowship at Acts 2:42, which is koinonia, “communion, association, partnership, fellowship” (ibid). The Roman church has distorted the meaning of the word communion in the minds of many people by using it to denote their mystery ritual. The word does not describe any ritual in the New Testament, but rather intends, as its primary dictionary definition states, “The act or an instance of sharing...”, according to The American Heritage College Dictionary, communion, 1. The word koinonia is found 19 times in the New Testament, and in the King James Version it is translated as communion four of those times. The true mystery of communion is not possessed by the Roman church nor any other: the true mystery is why so few realize that the body and blood of Christ are actually those Israelites sitting around the table! See, for instance, I Corinthians 10:16-17 and 12:12. The word communion is related to the words common, community, and communism. From this basic idea of Christian communion sprang those states which are designated by the term commonwealth.

1 Corinthians 10:16-17: “16 The cup of eulogy which we bless, is it not fellowship of the blood of Christ? The wheat-bread which we break, is it not fellowship of the body of Christ? 17 Because one loaf, one body, we the many are, for we all partake from the one loaf.”

1 Corinthians 12:12: “12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body, so also the Anointed.”

The Old Testament example of the commonwealth is found in the story of the Exodus at the collection of the manna in the wilderness. From the King James Version:

Exodus 16:16-18: “16 This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents. 17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less. 18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.”

Christianity is nationalism, and Christianity is socialism. However when it is properly defined, socialism is a care for and a tending to the needs of one's own national community. As it was in the Exodus, although some clearly had the ability to gather more than others, yet everyone was assured enough to eat. The needs of the Christian community outweigh the needs of the individual member. Thus is the Christian Commonwealth. Yet the wealth of the Christian community is not for aliens. Rather, it was considered a curse if an alien ate of those blessings bestowed by God upon the children of Israel. Thus we read in Ecclesiastes chapter 6: “A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.” It was also considered evil to accommodate the sinful. From the Wisdom of Sirach, chapter 12: “6 For the most High hateth sinners, and will repay vengeance unto the ungodly, and keepeth them against the mighty day of their punishment. 7 Give unto the good, and help not the sinner.” For that same reason the apostle Paul wrote in Romans chapter 10 (from the Christogenea New Testament): “8 You owe to no one anything, except to love one another: for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 Indeed you shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not lust, and any other commandment is summarized in this saying, to wit: 'You shall love him near to you as yourself.' 10 Love for him near to you who does not practice evil: therefore fulfilling of the law is love.

Marxist Socialism and Communism - if they can be distinguished at all - are ungodly. These products of Jewish thinking have all the West - all of Christendom - enslaved today. They are enforced by the State, they force blindness to nationality, and they have a general disregard for moral character. Christian communion is not enforced by the State. For Paul, quoting the very passage in Exodus concerning the distribution of the manna, asks that the assembly at Corinth give to the needs of persecuted Christians in Judaea voluntarily, and did not compel them (2 Corinthians chapter 8). Christianity is not ethnically blind, but rather it is wholly racist, to use a Marxist term. That Christianity is racist is evident from passages such as Matthew 15:24 where Christ is recorded as having said “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel” or Matthew 25:32-33 where the sheep and goats are divided by sight, and the judgement of the sheep nations is entirely positive where the judgement of the goat nations is entirely negative. Neither is Christianity morally neutral, and those who are of reprehensible moral character and who are unrepentant should be ejected from the Christian community (I Corinthians chapter 5), so that they may suffer without its beneficence.

Neither does Christian community endorse the idea of a hand-out. In a Christian community the slothful is penalized (II Thessalonians 3:10), but the workman is to be rewarded (Matthew 10:10, 25:28-29). If one does not work, one does not eat: 2 Thessalonians 3:10: “Also when we were with you, this we instructed you, that if anyone wishes not to work, neither must he eat.This idea was expressed in the political philosophy of Adolf Hitler, and was later implemented in National Socialist Germany's welfare policies. From the pages of Mein Kampf, Book 1, Chapter 2:

Page 24 (in the Murphy edition): “I do not know which is the more nefarious: to ignore social distress, as do the majority of those who have been favoured by fortune and those who have risen in the social scale through their own routine labour, or the equally supercilious and often tactless but always genteel condescension displayed by people who make a fad of being charitable and who plume themselves on 'sympathising with the people.'”

Page 27 (in the Murphy edition): “During my struggle for existence in Vienna I perceived very clearly that the aim of all social activity must never be merely charitable relief, which is ridiculous and useless, but it must rather be a means to find a way of eliminating the fundamental deficiencies in our economic and cultural life--deficiencies which necessarily bring about the degradation of the individual or at least lead him towards such degradation.”

Part of the foundation of good Christian doctrine is the idea that one should devote his life to serving his brethren, which are his kinsmen. Individual sacrifice for the benefit of the race is often merely inferred in the Gospels, but just as often it is presented as an explicit requirement of Christians. The idea of giving one's life for one's people does not necessarily mean dying prematurely for them, however that too may often be a necessity. But what it means much more practically is the devoting of one's life to their well-being, to the common weal or to what is of benefit to all. Hitler's own thought in this area is a perfect product of the gospel, and he often stressed the need for individual sacrifice on behalf of the race. Here are a few New Testament scriptures that elucidate this philosophy:

John 10:11-17:  "11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep ... 14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again."

Matthew 10:38-39:  "38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it."

Matthew 23:10-12: "10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted." 

John 15:13: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

It is evident from these scriptures and others, that we are to follow Yahshua Christ's example by giving up, or at least by devoting, our lives to the betterment of our communities. If Christians devoted their lives to their nation, rather than to their own self-enrichment, how much better off the nation would be as a whole! And Yahweh God would surely reward the individual who did these things. What follows are some quotes from Mein Kampf which demonstrate that Hitler had fully incorporated this Christian philosophy into his own philosophy.

From Book 1, Chapter 10 (page 146 of the Murphy edition): "The right to personal freedom comes second in importance to the duty of maintaining the race."

From Book 1, Chapter 4 (page 94 of the Murphy edition): "The sacrifice of the individual existence is necessary in order to assure the conservation of the race. Hence it is that the most essential condition for the establishment and maintenance of a State is a certain feeling of solidarity, wounded in an identity of character and race and in a resolute readiness to defend these at all costs."

From Book 1, Chapter 11 (page 168 of the Murphy edition): "The readiness to sacrifice one's personal work and, if necessary, even one's life for others shows its most highly developed form in the Aryan race. The greatness of the Aryan is not based on his intellectual powers, but rather on his willingness to devote all his faculties to the service of the community. Here the instinct for self-preservation has reached its noblest form; for the Aryan willingly subordinates his own ego to the common weal and when necessity calls he will even sacrifice his own life for the community."

From Book 1, Chapter 11 (page 169 of the Murphy edition): "In the German language we have a word which admirably expresses this underlying spirit of all work: It is Pflichterfüllung, which means the service of the common weal before the consideration of one's own interests. The fundamental spirit out of which this kind of activity springs is the contradistinction of 'Egotism' and we call it 'Idealism'. By this we mean to signify the willingness of the individual to make sacrifices for the community and his fellow-men ... To this kind of mentality the Aryan owes his position in the world. And the world is indebted to the Aryan mind for having developed the concept of 'mankind'; for it is out of this spirit alone that the creative force has come which in a unique way combined robust muscular power with a first-class intellect and thus created the monuments of human civilization."

From Book 2, Chapter 2 (page 239 of the Murphy edition): "The man who loves his nation can prove the sincerity of this sentiment only by being ready to make sacrifices for the nation's welfare. There is no such thing as a national sentiment which is directed towards personal interests. And there is no such thing as a nationalism that embraces only certain classes."

In early America, some of our own most Christian states were founded on this same principle of "service of the common weal", which is what the word commonwealth means. Materialism, the consuming individual hording for his own gain and the prospect of his own future security, is anathema to the Christian community. The concept of the egotistical individual, the concept of stardom, is antithetical to Christianity. Both of these concepts are deceptions of the Jewish mind, and divide the members of the body of Christ into units which are then in competition with one another. To the Jew, a nation unified in Christian community is anathema. So one tendency of the jew is to divide society by creating the star or the personality. This fragments the nation into a collection of individuals, each seeking after their own interests, and not caring for the interests of the nation. Such materialism and egotism are vain idolatry. It is not a coincidence that the Jewish media calls their stars and heroes idols.

That Nationalist Socialist Germany put these sound principles of Christian Community into practice is documented. The following passages are from the booklet Social Welfare in Germany by Werner Reher, 1938, published by the Terramare Office, in Berlin, pages 3 through 7 (some notes from the editor are in brackets):

“In all civilized countries there are organizations for social assistance which owe their origin and maintenance to private initiative. Some of these operate under the aegis of religious denominations and others are carried on by lay associations which have been established to meet some definite social need. The idea which inspires all these springs from the Christian principle of love for the neighbour, the idea of doing good to others. Then there are social welfare activities which are subsidized and directed by the State and these also are inspired by the Christian principle. The desire and purpose of all such undertakings is to foster a social policy whereby the economic distress of the individual will be made at least bearable. Thus the underlying presumption is that economic distress is a permanent condition in which a certain class of the community must live. Should temporary distress arise temporary measures are generally adopted to meet it. But the uniform postulate on which social welfare activities are generally based is the belief that the poor will be always with us. The preaching and practice of this principle weakens the moral resistance of those who find themselves in need of assistance. [Simply because Christ stated it as a matter of fact doesn't mean that we should give people an excuse to despair. - WRF]

“Germany is now endeavouring to establish a new social concept of the State and its functions. This idea is based on the traditional union between the people and their native land [Blut und Boden, or Blood and Soil] and on the hope that, by uniting the people in one folk community where class distinctions play no part [but certainly existed and were expected to continue], it may be possible to find a solution for the social problem in a synthesis between people and State. Unless this attempt first wins the acceptance and sanction of the people it will be doomed to failure. The State must secure the willing cooperation of the people.

This free collaboration on the part of the people, which is now an established fact and force in Germany, is a proof that the people have been approached and won in the right way. And this achievement must be placed to the credit of the National Socialist People's Welfare Orga­nization (N. S. V. = Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt). This organization has now more than seven million members. These seven millions are the sponsors of that work which shows itself most strikingly in the German People's Winter Help and in the "Mother and Child" institution. In this social service there are nearly 1,500,000 voluntary workers. These workers are engaged in teaching the public in a practical way to understand that the need of the individual is an affair that concerns the community as a whole. Whatever help is given to the individual must not be given as an alms. It is the duty of the community to render assistance in cases of need, not as a work of super­erogation [the performance of more than is asked for, the action of doing more than duty requires] but as a work that is necessary to maintain the existence of the community itself. Such is the principle which inspires all the activities of the N. S. V. and that principle is constantly kept before the public mind.

In the Marxist and liberalistic systems the individual and his needs formed the point of central interest. That is not so with the National Socialist welfare system. Here the community of the people is the primary and essential object of care. The wellbeing of the community is a necessary precondition for the wellbeing of the individual. Hitler once declared: "We do not say to the rich man: 'Give to the poor', but we say: 'People of Germany help yourselves'."

However the people of Germany had the means with which to help both themselves and their communities. The removal of the usury-based currency and the prohibition of speculation in land and raw materials, among other measures, ensured that the individuals in a community had access to the means of production and the tools necessary to develop both healthy communities and healthy individuals. All of which is anathema to the Jewish capitalists, and which was why Hitler's Germany had to be destroyed.

National Socialist Germany was only putting into practice the concepts of socialism as it was originally conceived, that the producers would control the means of production rather than the Jewish capitalists and speculators. Contrarily, in the Marxist system as it was implemented in Russia, the State owned the means of production - and the State was wholly controlled by Jews. Under the National Socialist system, freed from the world's parasites all of the members of the body could be healthy once again. Therefore Germany blossomed while the rest of the West was in depression. Today's Christians must remove themselves from the Jewish-controlled shackles which captivate their political thoughts, and reassess both Scripture and history if they are ever going to free themselves of Satan.
