The Higher Calling, a review of a Sermon by Bertrand Comparet
Perhaps it is fitting that each time I begin a review of a sermon by Comparet or Swift, or an essay by Emahiser, that I do so with reflections on my own early Christian Identity studies. However I had originally embarked on my studies because I was compelled by sermons such as these from Comparet or Swift, and I was helped along the way by Emahiser.
This sermon, however, is important to me because it shows that regarding one critical issue, I have always generally agreed with Comparet, while many other Christian Identity pastors or teachers and their followers have different opinions which are not so well-grounded in Scripture. Often, those who have disagreed with me on this issue have even attributed to Comparet a position which he did not hold. That critical issue is the fact that all Israel shall be saved.
That “all Israel shall be saved”, the Bible states rather plainly, as it is found in both the letters of Paul in Romans chapter 11 and in the prophecy of Isaiah in chapter 45. The Scriptures also lead us to make the same implication in many other places. But in spite of that, many Identity Christians argue against it, and even despise us for holding to the assertion. However we would assert that their doctrines are remnants of their denominational baggage, and they are not founded in Scripture.
There is one popular belief that is probably found in every Christian denomination, which is that people who are generally “good” in their patterns of behavior go to heaven, and people who are “bad” in their patterns of behavior, or who have been especially “bad” at one time or another, are in danger of going to hell forever. To that, the Roman Catholic Church added the concept of purgatory, as priests needed an angle by which to extort men out of their money, convincing them that their loved ones were stuck and couldn’t quite make it to heaven without the intervention of the priests.
Being raised Catholic to some degree, as a young man I had the same general understanding regarding these teachings on salvation, except that I don’t think I ever really believed, or perhaps only never cared about, the claims concerning purgatory. So when I found Christian Identity, sermons such as this made an impression which led me to inquire into these things more carefully, and when I began to actually study the Scriptures, especially in their original languages, the conclusions which I reached remained in general agreement with Comparet’s position on this issue, and perhaps the differences we may have are due only to semantic differences.
When I first came to Christian Identity, I gave much thought to the meaning of the word religion. Perhaps this sermon by Bertrand Comparet, titled What is Religion?, had helped to stimulate that process. The primary definition of the word religion in the Oxford Dictionary is “the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.” But although that is what it has come to mean, I believe the original sense of the Latin word from which it was derived has a much deeper meaning, and that this deeper meaning is relevant to our Christian Identity profession. The Latin word religio was used in a manner much like we use the word religion today. But the related word religo is a verb meaning to tie back or tie up, and religatio is a tying back or up. So, according to The New College Latin & English Dictionary, the word religiosus, which is probably the closest antecedent to our word religious, was used to refer to something which was “subject to religious claims, under religious liability.” Liability is “the state of being responsible for something”, so there is the connection to the meaning of the root word religo, in the sense of being tied or bound to a thing.
This in turn brings several Scriptures to mind. First, in Matthew chapter 18, we read in the words of Christ: “15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church [assembly]: but if he neglect to hear the church [assembly], let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.” Then, after admonishing His disciples about sin and guilt and the need to reject men who do not accept correction along those lines, Yahshua Christ had also said “18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” So binding and loosing are related to Christian fellowship and community, or communion, and that in turn is based on an abstention from sin and a keeping of the commandments of God. Paul’s example of such loosing is found in 1 Corinthians chapter 5, where he encouraged the assembly at Corinth to ostracize a fornicator from their community.
Rosette Delacroix hosts TruthVids and William Finck for a discussion concerning the recent TruthVids video, 100 Proofs the Israelites were White. We expect to continue this for one more segment in January.
In the early years of my Christian Identity studies, I became acquainted with a plethora of wild ideas, and I actually did evaluate them all as best as I could. Some of these came from British Israel writers, and others from more recent Americans such as Rand, Swift or Comparet, and even more recent writers who are still alive today. So with an open mind and with Scripture as my guide, along with various lexicons and many books of classical history and ancient inscriptions, and even many of the so-called apocryphal or pseudepigraphal books, as I studied I had considered just about everything that an Identity Christian could hear.
Among these were the Ephraim-Scepter heresy, and the Noon-to-Noon calendar day heresy, the No-Devil heresy, and all of these Clifton had written essays about before I ever had a chance, because he was also dealing with them for a long time. Both Clifton and my friend Ralph Daigle would send me all sorts of Christian Identity-related materials, and some of it I read for entertainment purposes, while other things I took more seriously. If I ever unpack the three remaining crates of notes and correspondence I had accumulated throughout those years, perhaps I will address some of the things which have merit, or at least those which seem to need further attention because the things they proposed are still in circulation.
Throughout those years, in my studies I naturally came to many conclusions which I did not have immediately, and which had long been debated in Identity Christian circles. Foremost among these were the debates concerning Two-Seedline, the origin of non-Adamic races, the identity of certain of the trees of Eden, and other important topics. Some of the conclusions which I have arrived at over the years actually took years for me to understand, and then even more years to formulate effective arguments based on the supporting evidence.
One of the “wild ideas” I was often confronted with was the claim that the name Jesus came from that of the pagan Greek deity Zeus, and that concept is still promoted in certain Christian Identity circles today. In fact, I am certain that James Wickstrom perpetuated it throughout the entire time of his ministry, in spite of the fact that he ultimately should have known better.
Identity Christians are sometimes perceived as Judaizers, at least those of us who often prefer to use certain Biblical Hebrew terms in place of more modern English or Greek terms. This is especially true where it comes to the use of certain Hebrew names and titles for the God of Israel, or for Christ. But to me, it is much more dangerous heresy to be a Judaizer in the implementation of certain doctrines and concepts that are really only derivatives of the Old Covenant reliance on ceremonies and rituals, rather than to be called a Judaizer on account of a preference for a couple of names or words. To Judaize is one thing, but to lay claim to a heritage which rightfully belongs to many White Europeans, and which never actually belonged to Jews, is something totally different.
So here we are going to present, and hopefully expand on, a paper written by Clifton Emahiser titled Which Is It, "Lord" Or "Yahweh"? But Clifton really did not write this paper. He only wrote the first paragraph, and the rest was simply a reproduction of an article from the 1910 edition of Encyclopedia Britannica. Then he sent this to me to proofread, in the Spring of 2004, and doing that, I made some brief comments which he then added as a conclusion to the article. Making this presentation, I will rearrange some of those notes this evening, and I will certainly also add many others.
Sven Longshanks and William Finck discuss some of the historical errors and anachronisms which expose the so-called "Book of Jasher" as a fraud, along with some of its many conflicts with Scripture. Do not be deceived by another medieval Jewish ploy to distort the Scriptures.
The Franks, the Lombards and the country called Italy did not exist by those names in the time frame which Genesis chapter 10 describes.
The Romans did not hold the land of Edom subject 750 years before Rome existed.
The Punic Wars did not take place during the time of Moses.
The invasion of Britain did not occur during the time of Joshua.
Many attitudes expressed and circumstances described in the Book of Jasher are contrary to both history and to our received Scriptures, and cannot possibly be true.
The Book of Jasher reads like a Jewish super-hero cartoon, and should not be considered any differently.
Speaking academically, we are not going to move our Christian Identity studies forward, and distinguish our faith from all of the errors of denominational churchianity, until we leave behind all of the mistakes of the past. As I have said before, there are many supposed Identity Christians who are content with the 19th century discoveries of British Israel, and that is where they remain. Some others have moved past that to realize that the Jews are not Judah, but they are still mired down in other heresies, such as the supposed 6th & 8th day creation heresy, or the idea that man can somehow be justified by works, which are the rituals of the law, or the heretical idea that Yahweh created races of men other than Adam, and when He created them in Genesis, He only called them beasts. These last fools often claim that the other races are the beasts of Genesis 1:25, but they are to be included among “all men” in John 12:32 or the “world” of John 3:16. All of these heresies are evil, and the men who uphold them are scatterers, and not gatherers. All of these heresies lead to compromise with the enemies of Yahweh our God, and all of them and more must be left behind if we are to have a truly pure and righteous faith.
We have spoken often about some of these heresies, but this evening we will discuss a different sort of heretic, which is the Christian Identity Judaizer. Paul of Tarsus resisted the Judaizers in the first century, and we must continue to resist them today. Sadly, many of our Christian Identity brethren have fallen for the trap of self-justification which they have set. There seems to be a lot of confusion in Christianity, and especially among Identity Christians, as to the relationship of the New Covenant to the Old Covenant. So many Identity Christians, realizing the truth of the Hebrew roots of White Christian Society and the Israelite ancestry of the majority of the tribes which had formed the modern nations of Europe, think that they must revert to keeping the many statutes and ordinances of the Old Covenant in order to better please Yahweh their God.
So we have friends that won’t shave any part of their beards, as we read in Leviticus 19:27: “27 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.” Then of course, there is often much arguing among brethren as to what it means to “round the corners of your heads” or “mar the corners of thy beard”, and men seek to justify themselves in the belief that they have a proper explanation. Quite often, they have no true explanation at all, but only conjecture.
William Finck discusses his recent and negative experience attempting to lend a helping hand to a needy man. But as it turns out, some people probably shouldn't be helped, because there is no helping them at all...
So this evening we are going to present a short paper from Clifton Emahiser titled Be Kind to Your Kind. Clifton had originally prepared this paperfor publication on June 24th, 2006.
I am presenting this at the current time because I tried to rush the last presentation in my commentary on the Gospel of John, and I made a serious error which was pointed out to me by a friend at the Christogenea Forum. So I will present that afresh, and with much more time and consideration, hopefully next Friday. I also hope that having taken some time off this week, I have had some needed rest. Otto, our Weimaraner, benefited because I was able to assemble a dog house and a few other things he desperately needed in his new kennel.
So I would also like to say that while it seems that I have been close to completion for awhile now, my tasks in the aftermath of the hurricane are finally actually getting there, and I expect to be done moving out of the old house by early next week, so long as the weather is fair. I thought that we would be finished at least a few weeks ago, but we have had some obstacles to our progress. We still have a lot of work to do to settle in here at our new place, but we are close to accomplishing that as well.
As long as eighteen centuries ago, certain men who were highly influenced by Jews as well as by pagan Greek philosophies had become Christians, and began writing voluminous works, many of which have been preserved to our time, although no one can claim with any great degree of confidence hat they are without corruption as we have them today. A couple of the more notable of these men are Justin Martyr and Clement of Alexandria. We mention these two here as examples. While it is always beneficial to see how some early Christians understood the faith of Christ, we must understand their writings in the context in which they were made, and can never accept them as replacements for Scripture in the formulation of Christian doctrine. They were never even universally recognized or disseminated for that purpose in their own time, and they were often disagreed with by other early Christian writers. But in these aspects, they were not alone: Tertullian, Irenaeus and others also shared this same plight, and deservedly so. There was no commonly accepted doctrine among the Christian assemblies until it was forced, for political expediency, beginning in the early 4th century at Nicaea and culminating with the decrees of Justinian establishing the Papacy as we know it in the 6th century, which elevated the bishop of Rome to primacy, and the bishop of Constantinople to the second place among all the bishops of the empire. Five hundred years later, the bishop of Constantinople led the first Protestant uprising against the Papacy, forming the separate Orthodox Church.
It has been nearly a month since my last presentation here, which was the last monthly End Times Update with Don Fox back on October 6th. I am still not ready to produce much new material, still having far too many tasks to attend to, but here I am in spite of the circumstances caused by the recent hurricane.
As for Melissa and I, we are fine. Our house is badly damaged, but Yahweh has blessed us with another place to live. My library, computer equipment, and most of our other possessions are all safe, and we suffered relatively minimum losses which should be fully covered by our insurance. So I fully expect my work and ministry to be back on a regular schedule as soon as I can finish getting moved and settled in and getting my other affairs in order, such as dealing with the insurance companies and smaller chores such as obtaining a new PO Box.
The building where we had our post office box, which was actually a UPS store, was badly damaged in the storm. A large portion of the roof caved in and several stores were destroyed in the strip mall where it was located. So I have not been able to get my mail in nearly a month. If anyone has sent me anything, including the payments which we await for new book orders, I probably won’t have it at least until the end of next week. Soon I will publish a new PO Box address on the Contact page at Christogenea...
This past Saturday Melissa and I attended an unannounced League of the South demonstration in Tennessee, which I could not indicate in my announcement for last week’s program. Of course, the scheduled demonstration at Sycamore Shoals State Park in Tennessee was canceled, and I hope to write about that soon. Christogenea is not a news outlet, and I have no compulsion to do so immediately. The demonstration went very well, and we were very well received by the local population of Newport, Tennessee. Nevertheless, for us it was a difficult road trip, as our jeep suffered a mechanical breakdown, nearly a second after having that repaired, and we had some other challenges along the way. We made it home a day later and one visit shorter than we had originally planned, as we had hoped to stop in North Georgia to see some friends there. Yahweh willing, we will have another opportunity to do that in a few months.
I have had some people who criticize us, meaning Identity Christians, on the basis that Christian Identity is something which is relatively new in history. So the other day in social media I explained Why Christian Identity is such a "new" denomination, and of course we know that it is not really a denomination, but they call it that. We know that it is The Way. Here are five simple reasons why it is so new:
1) Throughout the Middle Ages the question of race in Europe was not an issue, as most folks kept to their own kind and race-mixing was largely a result of prostitution or defeat in war.
2) The Roman Catholic Church had restrictions on copying Scripture for general dissemination, and even tried to hold the line once the printing press was invented, but the printing press ultimately defeated the policy by brute force.
3) Once men got their hands on copies of the Bible, they began reading and realizing how far the so-called "orthodox" churches had wandered from the Gospel of Christ. This was the chief reason for the Reformation and the cause of a multiplicity of denominations which followed.
4) The colonial period led British, German and French academics to treasure troves of information previously unavailable, through exploration and archaeology.
5) Once archaeological records of ancient population migrations became available and certain Protestants realized the implications, British Israel and then Christian identity began to develop, from around the second quarter of the 19th century.
Conclusion: If you cannot revise your thinking based on new information, or at least on information which is new to you, you are a slave and a fool. In the end, we will ALL be Christian Identity whether you like it or not.
Although the planned League of the South demonstrations that were scheduled for the 29th at Sycamore Shoals State Park in Tennessee have been canceled, Melissa and I have come to the area anyway, as in our plans to attend the event we made other commitments which we wanted to keep. So this presentation is being prerecorded Friday afternoon for tonight's program and publication at Christogenea. I hope to write about the cancelled event and the implications of that cancellation in the weeks to come. The State of Tennessee has made itself an agent of the Antifa.
Identifying the Biblical “Beast of the Field”, Part 4
In my presentation from chapter 2 of the Gospel of John which I made here last week, which was subtitled Challenging Orthodoxy, I strongly criticized the so-called “Church Father” who is popularly known as John Chrysostom. Some people, mostly Orthodox Christians, took offense to that. They should be ashamed. They simply do not understand that their “Church Fathers” are not God, but men. Yahweh our God cannot righteously be criticized. Jesus, or Yahshua Christ, who is God Incarnate, cannot righteously be criticized. His chosen apostles were mere men and each had their faults, but their message, which is directly from Him, should not be criticized. But whenever we elevate a man to that level of veneration by which the man cannot be criticized, we engage in idolatry. I will not engage in or be subject to Orthodox or Roman Catholic idolatry.
One vocal complainant told me that I should repent for “attacking” his idol, Chrysostom. But he did not address any of the substance of my criticism. This is typical of idolaters. So I asked him, and several others like him, which of the Ante-Nicene “Church Fathers” is it that Orthodoxy follows completely, and none of them have answered. I do not believe they will answer, because it can be demonstrated that they will be found to have denied the very men upon which they claim to have their theological foundations.
Identity Christians worship Christ and believe the words of His apostles and prophets. But Orthodox Christians claim an authority for “tradition” and “Church Fathers” whom we see as mere men. We can cite them where they elucidate early Christian history, and we can discuss their attitudes on many subjects. But we cannot venerate them as gods, and we cannot view them as having been infallible – especially since they often disagree with one another. The Word of God is our authority, as the Scriptures themselves tell us, and not any traditions of men. The beginning of tyranny is the desire to rule over another man's faith, and we have a Christian duty to resist such tyranny, for that the early martyrs had died.
Identifying the Biblical “Beast of the Field”, Part 3
In my presentation last week, The Role of Faith in a Successful Insurgency, Movement, or Community, I discussed the fact that if we as Christians are going to overcome this world, then we must dehumanize our enemies, referring to those who are also the enemies of Christ. While, once again, I cannot prove in a few statements that all of the other or non-White races are among those enemies, we have proven that long ago in other presentations here at Christogenea. In brief, in the New Testament parables of Christ, there are sheep and there are goats, and only one particular race of people are ever identified as sheep, while all the other nations are goats. In the Revelation, the serpent sends a flood from his mouth after the Woman, the Bride of Christ who represents the children of Israel in their reconciliation to God which is through Christ, and that vision corresponds to the prophecy of Satan gathering all of the world’s nations against the Camp of the Saints, which are the same White Christian people of God. These statements only summarize the Biblical proofs by which we may support our position.
So in last week’s presentation I included material showing that it was not very long ago, perhaps only a hundred and twenty years, that books were printed by both poets and churchmen which debated whether the non-White races were even human, as many of them had indeed considered the non-White races to be beasts, or devils, and not people. Then I made the assertion that the Bible already does that same thing for us, that it dehumanizes our enemies, but that I could not possibly offer all of the proofs in a short space. While many of those proofs are found in our Pragmatic Genesis series and in other presentations, this series on the so-called Beast of the Field is meant to be yet another part of that proof, but from a different perspective.
Going back to last week’s presentation, some may feel that the word insurgency was a little strong. The concept was not really aimed exclusively at Christian Identity adherents, but at all of the White Nationalists and casual Christian Nationalists who are without a compass, or still following some worldly church or some foreign or pagan religious authority while pretending to be Nationalists. An insurgency is generally defined as an active revolt or uprising. That describes Identity Christians as well as certain nationalist groups, although in different ways.
As Identity Christians, we seek to revolt against the established religious sects which are neglecting the Word of our God and lying about His Covenants and the identity of His people. As Christian Nationalists, whether we are in any particular nationalist organization or not, we seek to revolt against the American empire and all other oppressive governments of the world which are now forcing us to accept every form of perversion and corruption in open defiance and disobedience to our God. I am not calling for open revolt, but we certainly await the day that it comes, which is the day that Mystery Babylon finally falls. So while for now, and from either perspective, that revolt is only a spiritual battle for the hearts and minds of our people, one day it shall become a real battle, and we have a promise from our God, that if we stay true to His Word then we shall prevail.
Identifying the Biblical “Beast of the Field”, Part 2
I have seen many people scoff at Identity Christians simply because of the disagreement which those who label themselves as “Christian Identity” have with one another on a multitude of Biblical topics. We have the benefit of a creed with no pope, no bishops, no ecumenical councils, and few organized assemblies. But what we have in place of those things are ten thousand would-be popes, bishops and council leaders. If we are ever going to overcome the world, we all need to get on the same page, but the only legitimate page to be on is that which has written upon it the Word of God. True Christian humility is a willingness to agree with the Word of God, and be able to come to an agreement with one another based upon the Word of God. But instead of humble men we have innovators, who would pervert the Word of God for their own agenda.
When someone insists that non-White races of so-called people are described as having been created by Yahweh on the sixth day of Genesis as beasts under the label of chay or chayah, and then every single Biblical example that they bring forth from the Old Testament in order to prove their point has the word beast from the Hebrew word behemah rather than chay or chayah, it should be perfectly evident that there is an agenda, and no care for truth....
Identifying the Biblical “Beast of the Field”, Part 1
In recent weeks, we have presented both our own views and those of Clifton Emahiser on the ridiculous so-called 6th and 8th Day Creation theory. Now we shall address another issue which is very similar to that theory, which is the idea that certain races of hominids, from which we have the non-White races of today, were among the “living creature” (chay nephesh) or the “beast of the earth” (chay erets) created in Genesis chapter 1 where we read: “24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” This is the usual fall-back position for those who endeavor to squeeze the beast races of hominids, the non-White races, into the Creation of God, as if any of them could possibly be “good”.
When I began my presentation of The Only True Adam of Genesis series in late June, I explained that I did so in part to address “certain so-called pastors in Christian Identity who cling to this fallacy of an 8th-Day Creation, and have the nerve to ridicule us for refuting it.” Now one of those same individuals, whom I will not yet name, is attempting to argue with me in social media over the idea that Yahweh created the non-White races as “beasts”. So he clings to two ideas for the creation of non-Whites, the 6th & 8th Day heresy, and this concept which we will begin to address here this evening. One way or another, there are so many fools who feel that they have to squeeze non-White races into the Creation of God, when all this time a “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” representing the corruption of Yahweh’s creation by fallen angels stares them in the face, and they overlook the significance.
Remembering Clifton Emahiser, Who is the Beast of the Field?
Too many Identity Christians take for granted the claim that the non-White races are the so-called “beasts of the field”. While in some passages non-Whites may be described as beasts, the word beast in those instances being used as a pejorative, that does not mean that they are the “beasts of the field” or “beasts of the earth” of the Creation account in Genesis. Alan Campbell, Eli James and others have continually made that claim, but it simply is not true. Then, more nefariously, Eli James and his cronies would call them “men” in relation to the New Testament, which is a Jew trick if I ever saw one.
The truth is, that Peter called the non-Whites among us “natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed,” and that is truly what they are, but none of the creatures created by Yahweh were made for that express purpose. In that same verse of his second epistle, Peter went on to say that they “shall utterly perish in their own corruption”, ostensibly because they came to exist through corruption.
Tonight we are mourning the death of our long-time friend and fellow-worker, Clifton Emahiser, who passed on Wednesday afternoon. This introduction is prerecorded for both programs this weekend, July 20th and 21st, 2018, and each evening I will rebroadcast a program which Clifton and I did together over the past several years.
Clifton Emahiser had been very sick for a long time. He had a stent put in his heart in 1998. One can go to his very first Watchman’s Teaching Letter, published in May of 1998, and the first thing he discussed was his heart attack that February, and his promise to devote the rest of his life to a teaching ministry. I remember him telling me often, even while I was still in prison, which is now at least ten years ago, about his intermittent spells of high blood pressure or low pulse rates.
Last August he had fallen in his garage at home, spent 17 hours on the floor, and had suffered some minor heart attacks then. The type of heart attacks to which Clifton was susceptible were not the sudden, massive ones that usually kill men immediately, but more subtle, long-lasting ones that leave one too weak to do much of anything but to have anxiety. He was told last August that he had more blocked arteries, but because of his age he was not a candidate for heart surgery.
So we brought Clifton here to our home in Florida, and tried our best to make him as comfortable as possible. I tried to encourage him to keep working, but he was generally too weak and tired to find the energy for writing. Diet and supplements were not much help.
The Only True Adam of Genesis, Part 4: Origin of a Heresy
Rejecting the so-called 6th & 8th Day Creation heresy is an absolute necessity if Identity Christians are ever to have a clear and unshakable racial concept based on Scripture. We need a clear and unshakable racial concept if we are to survive the trials with which we are faced at the present time. We do not need any capitulation to Jewish concepts, and we do not need compromise with non-Adamic so-called ‘people’. As I have said many times in the past, Yahweh did not create any of these non-White races and call them “good”.
But rejecting the idea that Yahweh created non-Whites is not the same as saying that Adam was the first intelligent bipedal hominid on the planet. In Matthew chapter 13, Yahshua Christ explains the parable of the wheat and the tares, which informs us that Yahweh planted one kind: wheat, and that the tares were planted by the devil. But the devil had to be somewhere in order to be able to infiltrate the field and plant the tares. In that same place, Christ declared that “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” So we cannot imagine that the entire truth of this planet and its history are revealed in the book of Genesis, if Christ Himself informs us that there were things which were purposely withheld from men until the gospel of Christ was proclaimed.
In the ancient Enoch literature and other associated writings, there are fragmented accounts of fallen angels who had corrupted the creation of Yahweh, in one way or another cross-breeding even their own seed with all sorts of animals, from which resulted monsters and demons and all sorts of other abominations, both physical and spiritual. Whatever we want to think of this, it is certainly apparent that the ancient Greek legends of satyrs, minotaurs and centaurs, hybrid creatures which were forever the enemies of man, must have flowed from the same fount as this more ancient Hebrew literature. Other related cultures carried similar legends which correlated with Hebrew scriptures even more closely – of which the Epic of Gilgamesh is a striking example....
The Only True Adam of Genesis, Part 3: Adam’s Commission
We have been presenting this series, The Only True Adam, not only because I have been too busy with necessary but worldly tasks here at home to maintain my regular schedule, but also because we are constantly confronted both on social media and within our own real-world circle of associates with long-time Christian Identity adherents who believe that there were two distinct creations of man, each of them called adam, in the Genesis account in our Bibles.
The title of this series, first used by Clifton Emahiser several years ago, is a challenge to those people, that there is one – and only one – creation of Adamic man described in Genesis. The word adam is a collective noun referring to a race of men, as it says in Genesis 5:2 where we read “Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.” This is a clear reference to the day described in Genesis 1:26-27, and it uses identical language from that passage to describe that race. But the word adam can also be a proper noun, a name used to describe the first male of that race.
As we described in Part 2 of this series, which we understand was quite prosaic and perhaps tedious to follow along with in a podcast, the proponents of this so-called 6th & 8th Day creation theory insist that the adam of Genesis 1:26 is a distinct being from the eth-ha-adam of Genesis 2:7, and the first thing they ignore is that the adam of Genesis 1:26 in the Hebrew is called eth-ha-adam in Genesis 1:27! Then, among other things, we went on to explain that these differences are only grammatical, and other forms, such as ha-adam, al-ha-adam, el-ha-adam and vav-lamedh-adam appear in these same chapters of Scripture. So if one insists that there are two different Adamic creations in Genesis chapters 1 & 2, for reasons of grammar, then one better insist that there were really five or six different Adamic creations in Genesis, for that same reason. But if one insists that there are two different Adamic creations in Genesis chapters 1 & 2 for reasons related to the general narrative, then one must insist that there were three different Adamic creations once Genesis chapter 5 is encountered.
The Only True Adam of Genesis, Part 2: ADAM in the Hebrew in Genesis
It never ceases to amaze me, how many times I may state something that is based upon at least two or three witnesses in Scripture, along with studies of word meanings in the original languages, along with contextual support, and often even historical support, yet people simply dismiss it because it goes against something which they were taught in the past. They are so confident in their supposed knowledge that they absolutely refuse to consider the possibility that they may be mistaken. They are so emotionally attached to their teachers, who are only fallible men, that they will not even examine the facts which underlie a contrary opinion.
Nowhere in Scripture do I see this phenomenon more often than in discussions of the creation of Adam which is described in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. Many people who learned their Christian Identity from Bertrand Comparet, Wesley Swift, or Sheldon Emry are so certain that there was an 8th-Day Creation of Adam distinct from the explicit 6th-Day Creation that they simply refuse to listen to any contrary evidence whatsoever. There is nothing wrong with being loyal to our teachers, but real loyalty would require studying behind them, and being able to prove everything which they told us for ourselves. For this Christ Himself never said “just take My word for it”, but rather He always said “search the scriptures”. Real loyalty would also require a dialogue when different results are obtained through that study. This is why there are science labs in high schools, so that students can prove through demonstration the things which they hear in the lectures, rather than merely taking those things for granted. If you are the only student whose metal rod did not expand when it was heated, you might have some great new discovery, or perhaps you only made an error in your measurements, and that is much more likely to be the case.
I am not going to get into much depth on Hebrew grammar this evening, which is the main topic of Clifton’s other paper and that first part of Pragmatic Genesis. But here I will only say that adding a preposition or a definite article to a noun does not by itself make that noun represent something different from what it represents without the preposition or article. The people who push the idea of two distinct Adamic creations attempt to do just that, and by it they display their own ignorance.
This evening I am making this particular presentation for two reasons. First, because we are traveling this week to the National Conference of the League of the South, and secondly, because even to this day there are certain so-called pastors in Christian Identity who cling to this fallacy of an 8th-Day Creation, and have the nerve to ridicule us for refuting it. One of them will also be at this conference. They do not even bother to offer a discussion, and they really do not know what they are ridiculing. In the end, it is they who shall be ridiculed.
Messages for a Post-Election Nationalism, with Sven Longshanks and Brother Ryan. William Finck's aspiration in this podcast was an elaboration on the sentiments expressed in his recent Saxon Messsenger editorial, Political Devices
This sermon was given at the Fellowship of God's Covenant People on Sunday, October 30th, 2016.
This visit to the Fellowship of God's Covenant People was decided on relatively short notice, and when I considered what I should present, I thought to speak on this subject of scattering and gathering upon being informed of certain events which took place recently here in this congregation. When I discussed my planned talk with Pastor Downey, he informed me that he himself had already said some of the same things which you may hear from me today. Mark even quoted from an essay on this topic which I had written a few years ago, and which I will incorporate into this discussion.
So when Mark asked me if I wanted to read what he had written, I politely declined, explaining that if I said the same things independently, that would better serve as a second witness to what he has already said here over the past few weeks. In my opinion, if we really do seek to please Christ and edify the body of Christ, we cannot entertain those who despise our core message. We cannot entertain those who in any way work contrary to our core message. None of the things which I say here today are for your admonishment. Rather, I would commend you for supporting Pastor Downey in his decision. Therefore I hope to say these things for your edification, that you have another assurance, knowing that you have made a necessary decision. I pray you continue to make such decisions in the future, because we should always expect that our faith may be tried in the fire.
A Critique of Wesley Swift, and why we must preserve his work: so first we explain our motives and methods at Christogenea.
I want to give people the opportunity to understand some of the logic behind Christogenea and how it evolved, so I have to sort of start from the beginning. Everything we do is carefully considered, whether we succeed or we fail. I remember telling Clifton Emahiser in a phone conversation, perhaps as early as 2005 or 2006, that one day I would put all of his material on a website of his own. At that time I wanted to call it john844.org. Of course, I was still in prison. There is currently a john844.org website which I created, but I did not use it for the purposes I had originally intended and in its current state it is still not complete. Then a short time later I thought of what I thought was a better term, and, so far as I remember, I kept it to myself.
When I was released from prison in December of 2008, I had a concept for a website for my own writing that I was going to call either Christogenea or Christogenos. I eventually settled on the former because I thought it better resembled its meaning in English, but I still like Christogenos a little more. I continue to retain ownership of both domain names.
I really thought that Christogenea would just be a small blog and a place for my essays and translations, and that I would keep my promise to Clifton. I never had any idea that it would grow into a collection of websites with over 12,000 pages, not counting the forum. I never imagined there would be a forum. By the end of April of 2009, I accomplished those things which I originally set out to do.
Christogenea Saturdays, March 12th, 2016: Christian Expectations
Tonight we are going to present some Bible basics, and concerning this, all Identity Christians should be on the same page. However sadly, many are not. Tonight is going to be an evening where I repeat myself often, because I hope to present several different chapters from the scriptures which also repeat the same things. They can be summarized like this: that we as a people, the formerly Christian nations, are being tried by the enemies of our God, who has permitted this for our sins which He long ago had foreseen, and there is only one way out of this trial, and that is by the same path that has long ago been spelled out in Scripture. Should we really think that we can change things for the better with an election? The Scriptures tell us no such thing, and, in fact, indicate quite the opposite. We are never going to vote ourselves out of our current predicament, and the longer we try the worse it will get.
Presenting Hitler's War from a Christian Identity Perspective, we saw that Adolf Hitler had correctly identified the war he was waging as a war for blood and race, and that the Jews wanted to destroy German racial integrity as well as desiring to control Germany and all the world economically. Hitler also correctly saw Bolshevism as a partner of Capitalism in the Jewish plan for world domination. So from a Christian Identity perspective, we must recognize that Hitler's war is also our war, and that it is still being fought even though the battle is not by the same means.
The ancient children of Israel were sent off into punishment nearly three thousand years ago for having forsaken their God, and in that punishment they grew into what became the later European society. We have no doubt that the Germanic and related nations are indeed the children of Israel who are destined to be reconciled to their God in Christ. Those same children of Israel were also warned that only their God could deliver them from their enemies. That is the purpose of the New Covenant, where it says, in part, “That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us,” as we may read in the first chapter of Luke. And while the New Testament Scriptures offer a blueprint which describes the path to that salvation, they have not yet been faithfully followed by men, and even then, they do not provide for any hope of that deliverance by the hands of men. As Yahweh said in Isaiah chapter 42, “And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.”
This program is going to be titled The Kingdom of Heaven, or the Elections of Men? We are going to begin by presenting a short sermon by Bertrand Comparet, and making some remarks in reference to it. But then we shall discuss the currently ongoing election season in the United States, and how Christians should look at both it and at the possibilities. We shall have brother Ryan and, perhaps a little later, some of our other friends and brethren with us for that discussion.
The Kingdom Of Heaven or In Heaven? by Bertrand L. Comparet
Prepared for internet publication by Clifton A. Emahiser’s Teaching Ministries, with Critical Notes
Disputing the nature of the Kingdom of Heaven in this sermon, Comparet is really disputing with Judaized Christians who have some sort of fantasy vision of the kingdom of heaven as castles in the clouds.
There is some dispute, in ecclesiastical circles, whether the kingdom of Yahweh, so often mentioned by Yahshua, is to be on earth or only in heaven. This is based chiefly on the use, only by Matthew, of the phrase the kingdom of heaven. Because of this verse, some have argued that the kingdom must only be in heaven, being heaven itself as ruled by Almighty Yahweh. Neither Mark, Luke nor John refer to the kingdom of heaven, but only to the kingdom of God. Even Matthew uses as an equivalent phrase, thekingdom of God, four times at Matthew 6:33; 12:28; 21:31 & 21:43. In Matthew 13:43 & 26:29 Yahshua speaks of the kingdom of their Father[in reference to the righteous] and My Father’s kingdom. Both of these phrases obviously being equivalent to the kingdom of God. There is clearly no distinction between the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God. [So Comparet asks:] Then why were the two phrases used?
Christogenea Saturdays, February 27th, 2016: Hitler’s War from a Christian Identity Perspective
Lately we have been discussing Christian Identity vision and objectives in presentations with Mark Downey and again in a recent article posted at Christogenea, which summarized some of the things we said in those presentations. Here we are going to offer what may at first seem to be a strange mix, especially to those who have not heard us speak about Adolf Hitler and National Socialism. This subject we have not touched on now for many months. What might seem to some to be a strange mix has a definite purpose. I would implore you not to accept the Anglo-American-Jewish propaganda concerning 20th century history. It absolutely amazes me that so many fools who claim to be Identity Christians, and especially pastors, still do accept all of those Jewish lies. Tonight I want to summarize, at least in part, what has happened in Europe and throughout the West in recent history, what is happening now as a result of that history, and also offer a summary of the proper perspective which the Identity Christians should have of both the events of recent history, and most importantly, of the place which we must assume for ourselves within the context of that history. All the Jews stand for lies, and we must stand for truth.
To help us accomplish this objective, we are going to present our recent article. But first, we we are going to present what is commonly known as Adolf Hitler’s last speech. It was a radio address to the German Volk made on January 30th, 1945. While it is short, we are going to read all of it, because it describes an earlier stage in the very same battle that our White race faces once again today. Except that comparatively, Whites as a collective people today are more like the Germans of 1922 than they are of 1933 or 1945. The speech is addressed to the German Volksgenossen, which are national comrades, and National Socialists, and ostensibly both labels were used to refer to the same people.
The hour is late, and all of the formerly Christian nations are overcome with the enemies of Christ. It is far too late to split hairs over the place of beasts in the kingdom of God, when it should be obvious to all that after 500 years of trying to civilize and make Christians of them they are still nothing but beasts.
How is Christian Identity relevant in today's society? How can we help to steer Christian Identity down a path which is useful to our nation and race in these last days? These are the core issues and objectives that we are once again going to discuss this evening with our friend and guest, Pastor Mark Downey of Kinsman Redeemer Ministries.
Methods of Interpreting Prophecy, Part 2: An Examination of Matthew Chapter 24
In our last presentation on this topic, I had said that none of the Preterists had produced an exegetical commentary proving their position. That is not entirely true. V. S. Herrell supposedly has produced such a commentary, titled “The Apocalypse of Jesus Christ”, a book said to number 300 pages. But I cannot find it anywhere. So my statement may as well stand. This is a man who, in one of his own articles titled What is White? had referred to himself as “God's anointed minister in this generation”. So God's anointed minister wrote a book on the Revelation that supposedly proves the preterist position, and it cannot be found. You would think that God's anointed minister would want to make his work available for anyone to read.
There are a lot of hare-brained preterist websites on the internet. One website announces that all prophecy was fulfilled by 70 AD, and it makes some rather extraordinary comparisons of the Revelation to peculiar tales from the history of Judaea up to 70 AD as proof of its assertions. But then it goes on to compare the thousand years that Satan was locked in the pit, found in Revelation chapter 20, to the period of time from 70 AD to the Crusades. So perhaps all prophecy was not fulfilled by 70 AD, where it is not convenient to their interpretation. They claim that Christ returned in the form of Jesus the son of Ananus, a man who was not a Christian, who is described in Book 6 of Flavius Josephus' Wars of the Judaeans. There it is said that he traveled about Jerusalem announcing woe to the city. According to Josephus, he did this for 7 years and 5 months, and “as he was going around upon the wall, he cried out with his utmost force, 'Woe, woe to the city again, and to the people, and to the holy house!' And just as he added at the last, 'Woe, woe to myself also!' there came a stone out of one of the engines, and smote him, and killed him immediately; and as he was uttering the very same presages he gave up the ghost.” So much for Jesus Christ being the immortal God, at least according to these people.
Methods of Interpreting Prophecy, Part 1: A Review of Clifton Emahiser's article Roman Catholic Origin Of Both Futurism & Preterism
We are going to begin a new endeavor, and continue it, as we have time, interspersed with the other ongoing projects we have here on Christogenea Saturdays. We will simply call this series Interpreting Prophecy. We do not know if it will be two, or three, or fifteen segments. But we will continue this until we feel we have said the things which are necessary to say.
Tonight we shall start this series by presenting Clifton Emahiser's fall, 2010 article titled Roman Catholic Origin Of Both Futurism & Preterism Clifton begins by referring to another paper he had written at the time, answering the heresies of Ron Wyatt. We shall present the text of Clifton's paper, add some of our own comments, and also add some material from early Christian writers to show, in part, their view of Biblical prophecy.
William Finck has posted his program notes with pertinent links at the Christogenea Forum under the same title, found here: Rejecting Rainbow Nationalism.
Mike Delaney of Prothink.org and Trutube.tv and Brett Light of ExpeltheParasite.com and AryanIsrael join William Finck for a discussion on Rainbow Nationalism, and why White Nationalists, and especially Christians Nationsalists, must reject these failures and victims of the Jewish agenda and Jewish Pop Culture.
Recently, during our visit to some Christian Identity brethren in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, I was introduced to a man from Missouri who considers himself an Identity Christian and a pastor. He and some others actually sat in the room with me and listened to one of my presentations of Bertrand Comparet's sermons.
We had a long discussion after that program was completed. But I quickly found out that this man, who I do esteem to be a sincere Identity Christian, did not like anything of what I had said about the King James Version translation of the Bible. In fact, he refused to acknowledge that the King James Version could be amended or improved upon in any way. He insisted that talking about the Scripture, “we need a sold foundation”, as he called it, and that the King James Version was the only solid foundation inspired by God.
Is it really true, that the King James Version is the only Scripture inspired by God, and is it true that it was inspired by God? In Psalm 147:19 we read that God “... sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.” Therefore there must have been Holy Scriptures before 1611, that Israelites could understand. In Acts chapter 17 we see the account of the men of Berea, who hearing Paul and Silas had “received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Therefore there must have been Holy Scriptures before 1611, that the Greek and Judaean men of Berea could understand.
Paul of Tarsus had wrote asking Timothy to come to him in Rome, and when he did he also asked him that “when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the parchments” (2 Timothy 4:13). Since the King James Bible was not published until 1611, there were books and parchments that Paul of Tarsus considered to be Holy Scripture long before the King James Version. So we must ask this: which books have the greater authority, the King James Version, or those which Paul had considered to be Holy Scriptures, whether they were in his own possession, or in the possession of the men of Berea? The phrase “word of God” appears many times in Scripture, but the King James Version did not exist until nearly 1600 years after the Crucifixion. So what was the “Word of God” until then?
Libertarianism cannot be Christian, updated October 31st, 2015
I saw my beloved brother and sister-in-law for the first time in seventeen years this past July (2012), and I received a reminder of where I had come from. Quite a vivid reminder it was because in spite of the passing of so many years, sadly they are still there. It is not that I do not love them, for I certainly do. However once one grows in the enhanced understanding of life and world circumstances and develops the weltanschauung which many Christian Nationalists have, or should have, a journey into the past is often a trip down a memory lane that is lined with haunted houses. [In other words, all Identity Christians have done things in the past which they would know better than to do now.]
One easily discussed example of our current differences may be drawn from popular music. “But you used to listen to that”, my brother said in protest when I pointed out that a certain musician was a promiscuous and deviant miscreant. Well, the ever-present strains from that FM radio of my childhood were flooded with it, so everyone used to listen to it. “You even bought one of his records!” Of course I had, but I was all of thirteen years at the time. And I can still hear and appreciate the beautiful melodies of Tiny Dancer or Your Song pierce the stale air of the distant past. But eventually I discovered the demons which lurked behind the poetical lyrics and bucolic album covers, and I hated them.
Is our planet Earth flat? Probably not. But in any case, certain of the flat-earthers are lying about many things. Should Identity Christians care if the Earth is flat? Probably not. And no matter what you may think, the original language of the Bible does not insist that it is. Identity Christians should keep themselves above and away from all of the fringe conspiracy theories that discredit our cause, distract us from what we should be doing, and drive people away from our core message, which is indeed true.
And if the earth is flat, will the Jews stop flooding Christendom with niggers? Certainly not. If the earth is flat, will the usury-based banking system fall? Certainly not yet. If the earth is flat, will the yellow and brown vermin infecting and overrunning our society disappear? No, they will not disappear until the true children of Israel repent of their sins annd turn back to Yahweh their God. That will not be accomplished through a flat-earth idol.
A group of Christian Identity brethren join us in the discussion.
Christogenea Saturdays, August 1st, 2015: True Christian Communion
Earlier this summer, on our recent five-week trip, we were invited to give an opinion of Christian Communion at a Wednesday Bible Study. Some members of a certain church which is dear to us had a long-standing division over the practice of communion as it is traditionally conducted in denominational churches, and whether it should be continued, and how it should be continued, in a true Christian church. I spent nearly an hour giving my opinion on the matter, and this presentation will be based on the outline notes which I had made for that reason.
We all (and when I say we I mean Identity Christians) have backgrounds in one denomination or another, one mainstream belief system or another which, upon discovering our Christian Identity, we now understand to have been based on false paradigms when compared to Scripture and history. But we also all have some degree of what I can really only describe as baggage. While after we have come to the Truth we usually realize that we must cast away much of what we upheld in our former walk, there are almost always some things which we maintain to which we have some emotional tie, things which made us feel good, and which we want to hold onto. Sometimes we simply take it for granted that we are supposed to be doing those things, which are supported by vague understandings of certain Scriptures, and so we insist that we keep doing them. But these are often traditions of men, or even Old Testament rituals that we have not let go of, and which are obscure to us because of the translations which have been made by the professional priests and because of the language and even the cultural barriers between us and the original texts. The truth is, that if we have baggage, then we have not come to the Truth with a clean slate. Often we fail to clean the slate out of our own ignorance, and often we fail to clean the slate out of our own desires to maintain our traditions simply because there are things which we like and we have always done them, so we insist on continuing them. Tonight we are going to take issue with some of the modern “traditions of men”, in comparison with scripture.
Pastor Mark Downey concludes his explanation that there is no silver bullet for which to cure what White Nationalists are calling White Genocide. This is a judgement from God, and the White man must return to his God and repent of his sin.

William Finck spoke at the Fellowship of God's Covenent People in Union, Kentucky this Sunday June 21st. I am grateful to pastors Elmore and Downey for the opportunity. Thank you, and praise Christ!
This article will also serve as the editorial for the upcoming Saxon Messenger.
Unity and Divisions
This presentation is really a compendium of things I have presented over the past several years. If one has read or heard my commentaries on the minor prophets, and the recently completed Romans exegesis, all of these things will be familiar, while I hope to have added a new perspective or two. This is because the grounds for Christian communion do not change, and the lines where Christian unity and divisions are drawn should indeed be very clear. Yet I find many Identity Christians who do not understand them, so I continually reiterate these same messages, and in as many ways as I can.
One of the biggest challenges which I have faced in my work is getting people to actually believe that all Israel (true Israel being our White Christian nations) shall be saved – in spite of the fact that Paul of Tarsus stated as much explicitly in his epistle to the Romans, and in spite of the fact that the prophets of Yahweh our God also stated as much. All Christians for two thousand years have suffered from a burden of doubt that was not taught by the original apostles, and that was not taught by the prophets of God. Peter said “you are a chosen race”, and not “you are a race that might be chosen”.
Christians are raised wondering whether they will be accepted by God at the end of their lives. With this, perpetual doubt is sown which causes men to turn away from the interests of their community and their race, in favor of their own interests whereby they pursue the materialistic desires of the flesh. When they face difficult times they feel abandoned by God, and because they have doubt it is just as easy for them to abandon God. By abandoning God, they are of no use to their communities and instead they work against the interest of their kinsmen because they seek to fulfill their own material needs at the expense of the needs of the community.
Pastor Mark Downey explains that the mantras of White Genocide are actually a curse to Whites, because Whites have a promise that there will never be such a thing. The cries of White Genocide actually instill in Whites a victim mentality which demotes them to the status of the lesser races. The original sermon is found at Mark's Kinsman Redeemer website here: White Genocide Part 1: The Ultimate Curse
Identity Christians should accept anyone who is apparently White, identifies as White, and who accepts the Gospel of Christ as being White. But it takes a greater-than-average knowledge of history and Scripture to accept Christian Identity, so we cannot expect all Whites who first hear it to do so, and some will never do so. Therefore. Identity Christians should accept as White anyone who, not having an Identity Christian understanding of Scripture, is apparently White and identifies as White so long as they do not openly oppose our message.
Because these lines can be so complicated in today's world with all of its various competing philosophies, then for the purpose of the problems which we are trying to address here we should define our expectations from our fellow Whites, whether they profess to be Christian or not, in the simplest terms possible.
Those terms are best represented by what we may call Positive Christianity and White exclusivity.
This presentation is based on two short articles written by William Finck back in the Spring of 2009, There is No Political Solution and Who is your god? As well as a short discussion of certain current events which are relevant to the context.
Spread the Message! Identity Christians should seek to help spread the Gospel of the Kingdom throughout the course of every day. We were supposed to have Open Lines tonight, but even with a plethora of listeners, there were no callers. Brother Ryan made the final half hour of the program, and continued the discussion for us.
The Importance of Paul of Tarsus to Identity Christians
Before commencing this program, I must make a confession, so that nobody is confused from the start. Myself and my ministry and all of its efforts are firmly grounded in the immutable fact that all of the promises of Yahweh God and of Yahshua Christ (or Jesus) which we have in our Bibles are absolutely 100% racially exclusive to the Saxon and Keltic and related peoples. There are no exceptions. All of the promises of God are made to one race of people only, who today are more loosely identified as White Europeans or Caucasians. Of course, even these labels are not specific enough, however listeners who are already Identity Christians should know what we mean when we use them. Nobody who has ever followed our work at Christogenea could fairly accuse us of being universalists in any sense of the word.
What we believe about the Bible can and should be described in two ways: first, it is Covenant Theology. We understand Covenant Theology to be the belief in God's Word as He made it: the covenants with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and to their seed are made exclusively to their genetic descendants, and nobody else. This is an honest acceptance of the Word of God as He imparted it to men. Secondly, it is Christian Identity, or more fully Christian Israel Identity. It is Christian Identity because we seek to identify through both Scripture and history, with the support of language and archaeology, exactly what people on the earth today are the beneficiaries of those Covenants: who the children of Israel are, and who they are not, according to that same Word of God. It is the truth of Covenant Theology which leads us to the need for Christian Identity. Therefore to accurately understand Christian identity, one must first realize the truth of Covenant Theology.
One caller to this program asked about the trees in the garden of Eden, found in Genesis chapter 2 verses 15 and 16. I was a little reluctant to get into another entire explanation of the chapter, or my opinion of it. I would only recommend he list, or see the published notes, to Pragmatic Genesis, Part 3 where I explain my position on this chapter fully.
A doctor, but better known as the biblical author of the "Gospel According to Luke", Luke the Evangelist was believed to have been born in Antioch, in the Roman province of Syria. Historical sources cite that he died at the age of 84 in Thebes (Greece) around the year 150 A.D. His body was interred first in Constantinople, and then later transferred to Padua, Italy. Geneticists have tested the remains believed to be those of Luke, and sampled Syrian and Greek populations for comparison. They've determined that the body attributed as Luke's, is likely of Syrian origin.
Admittedly, they claim to have compared MODERN DNA from Syria and Greece to DNA believed to be from the body of Luke, and then they claim that Luke's DNA matches the DNA of modern Syrians. They make these claims based upon some very thin evidence presented in a PDF file on this page: http://www.pnas.org/content/98/23/13460.full.pdf+html
