The Bible Mastery Boot Camp

I am very excited about our new DVD project called the Bible Mastery Boot Camp. This DVD teaching and training series has the potential to reach literally millions of God’s Covenant People across the globe. This is an audio-visual presentation which can effectively teach our People in the privacy of their own homes in order to help restore their lost biblical heritage. I want to give you more details about this DVD project and the vision I have for it. And if you share that vision, I want to tell you how you can help make it happen.

What Is This All About?

The Bible Mastery Boot Camp is a revolutionary step-by-step, systematic training course that can help our People know and understand what the Bible says and means – for themselves. It is a comprehensive teaching of the entire Bible in an audio-visual format. But it’s more than just teaching. It’s training our People how to read and study the Bible by training them to use standard and accepted principles of interpretation. That way, they discover what the Bible actually says and means for themselves. As a result, they own what they believe!

What the Bible Mastery Boot Camp Will Include

This will not just be a DVD all by itself. It will come with an accompanying personal course notebook that can be used along with the DVD. This will allow anyone who is watching the DVD presentation to apply what they are learning and write down the correct answers to each part of the presentation according to what the Bible says.

So, for example, as I teach in the DVD, I will periodically have the student stop or pause the DVD, read a selection of Scripture and fill in the correct answer to a question in the course notebook. My purpose is to engage the student to interact with me through the DVD. This enhances the learning process because they must try to find the correct answer according to the evidence of the Bible itself. My purpose is not to spoon feed them, but teach them how to feed themselves by actually doing it. Does that make sense?

When someone orders a module, they will also receive a copy of the corresponding book in the Covenant Heritage Series that supplements the DVD and personal course notebook. This will be another learning tool offering more details and documentation.

What Can Be Accomplished

The Bible Mastery Boot Camp DVD package will be a “done-for-you” teaching and training series that can be used individually, as a family, or in a small group setting. It creates an important benefit of convenience and privacy.

  • It can be viewed in a home with family
  • Friends and neighbors can come together to learn and grow together – like a home study time.

No one has to worry about trying to teaching anything. All they have to do is make the Bible Mastery Boot Camp available to others.

And what is the main purpose? It is our hope and prayer that the powerful God of our fathers will create His local churches in every land our People live. What if, in a short time the Spirit of the Living God began to move establishing local churches out of those who have been taught and trained from the Bible Mastery Boot Camp DVD presentation?

Can you see it? Is it possible? Yes, that’s my vision!

We Are Ready To Go!

For months now we have been creating scripts and corresponding class notebooks preparing to put it all together with a DVD format. We have had to learn how to actually create a professional DVD presentation. It was a difficult task and the project stalled until we accomplished this.

But now, we are ready to move forward. What we are working on now is an Introduction to the Bible Mastery Boot Camp DVD so it can be used as a preliminary first-step to give to someone brand new.

We are also getting ready to produce four separate Modules containing many classes in each one. Each Module is based on one of my books (Module One is based on Book One, Discover the Story of Your Biblical Heritage). And going through Module One is a prerequisite for Module Two (Identifying Biblical Israel Today), and so forth.

Do You Want To Help Us?

If you are prompted by God to help us with this venture, we would love that. We cannot do this alone. If you would like to offer support for this DVD project, please send me an email at BibleMasteryBootCamp@gmail.com. All financial donations can be sent directly to me (please make out checks to “Lawrence Blanchard”) at:

Lawrence Blanchard, PO Box 485,  Cocolalla, ID 83813

The more support we have, the more time we can give to completing this project.  Any donation is helpful. Thank you! (But please, if you are supporting another ministry, continue to do so. The last thing I want is to take from another worthy work.)

We will be emailing you newsletters periodically with updates to let you know about our progress.

We Are Changing Websites

Our current website, YourBiblicalHeritage.com, will be offline in the near future (before the end of the year.)  BibleMasteryBootCamp.com will be our new website. It is now live for you to explore.

After today, you will be receiving all email newsletters and updates from our new email address: BibleMasteryBootCamp@gmail.com or BMBC for short.

We will have our books available there for you under each title in the Covenant Heritage Series tab and I will be posting articles periodically. If you already signed up to receive my articles in the past, you are signed up. If you wish to be removed from our mailing list, just let us know. You can also unsubscribe at the bottom of each email newsletter. If you have never signed up for my articles and wish to be on our mailing list, you can go to our new website: BibleMasteryBootCamp.com and sign up in the left hand column.

I will also be doing live teaching of the Bible Mastery Boot Camp in northern Idaho. You can see the schedule of the live Boot Camps on our new website. I would love to have you come over and visit us. You are always welcome to sign up for and attend a Boot Camp (Modules One and Two), if you are able to come to northern Idaho. We have reasonable hotels nearby.

Special Announcement Coming

Next Thursday, October 26, I will be giving you a new and very important update about a special project we have been working on. I want to tell you a little bit about that here, but all I can say at this point is that this is going to be a very exciting project that could have a huge impact for God’s Covenant People globally. This project that I am currently working on could give us the opportunity to effectively get critical teaching of the Bible into the hands of perhaps millions of our People everywhere. You will want to pay attention to this update because we are shifting our focus in our teaching ministry. This will help you keep up with the new changes coming soon.

Writing the Covenant Heritage Series

Most of you are familiar to some degree with my books called the Covenant Heritage Series. But you may not know that before I began writing them, I conducted live teaching classes to groups of men who did not know anything about this new breakthrough understanding of the Bible. I was “field testing” the process and effectiveness of this biblical teaching that would become the basis for my books. I wanted to know if my approach to the Bible worked. As a result of this live teaching over the years, I kept improving and eventually perfecting this teaching process as the basis for my books.

In the past five years since the books have been available, I have gotten valuable feedback from those who have read at least one of the books. While many have greatly benefited, I have realized and identified one big problem and one major difficulty.

The Big Problem

The big problem encountered by some was in reading the books. Not necessarily because the books were hard to understand, but because reading was a problem. Some people have difficulty with reading itself.  Sometimes I have to re-read something several times to really grasp it. (Of course, the stuff I read is not light reading, either.)

I realize my books contain a lot of information and sometimes some people lose the flow and continuity of what is written just through reading alone. And my books are designed to build knowledge upon knowledge. Just reading them doesn’t always cut it.

So we thought, “Okay, how can we unleash the teaching of the Bible along with my books? Why not create a DVD series that would interactively take almost anyone step-by-step in an easy-to-follow approach to help them discover for themselves what the Bible says and means? Would that work?”

In my experience teaching live audiences, I have never failed to see the amazing explosion of the learning experience that people receive. They “get it” because of the way I teach and because it’s interactive.

Obviously, I wish I could do this everywhere, all the time. So, the next best thing is to duplicate this live teaching in a DVD format. This “big problem” with relying on just reading the books can be solved efficiently and effectively. I think many people will really get into it and their knowledge and understanding will just explode. It provides a learning experience on many levels.

Another Difficulty Solved

The other major difficulty that I kept hearing about is this: Many have expressed their desire to share the truth about what the Bible says with family, friends and neighbors, but are frustrated as to what to say and where to begin. You may have experienced the same frustration too.

But, what if you had a “done-for-you” DVD teaching and training series to give to someone?

  • What if you invited some folks over to your home to watch a DVD interactive presentation?
  • What if everybody got so excited about what they were hearing that they wanted to share the same DVD presentation with others?

Yes, I believe it is possible to reach more of our people than we ever thought possible! These DVD presentations can help overcome that major difficulty and bridge the gap.

Can this DVD presentation be that needed tool to help folks like you share the truth of God’s Word with those you know? I believe it can and will!

That’s why I am so very excited about this project. It’s exponential!

More About the DVD Project

I have more specific details about this DVD project coming next Thursday. I want to tell my vision for effectively reaching and teaching many, many more people like you.

I will be sharing what we have already been doing to develop this exciting project and where we are at right now.

So, stay tuned and I will see you next week.

The Return of Jesus Christ and Modern Christianity

It’s nigh impossible to listen to a typical Christian radio station without encountering two of the most popular topics being taught. They are that Jesus is coming back at some point in the future and the central mission of the church is to go into all the world and preach the gospel. Both teachings are interrelated and interdependent on each other. In other words, you can’t have one without the other. Both must be true. If one of those teachings falters, so does the other. So, let’s dig a little deeper and examine each topic.

The Condition That Must Be Fulfilled

It is contended that in order for Jesus to come again, a certain condition must be fulfilled according to Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 24:14:

“This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.” – Matthew 24:14

Before “the end” would come, the “gospel of the kingdom” must first “be preached in the whole world” as a testimony to “all the nations.” The phrase “the end” is associated in the context with “the end of the age” (verse 3), the “abomination of desolation” (verse 15), the “great tribulation” (verse 21) as signs of “the end” just prior to the “coming” of Jesus Christ (verse 30).

Therefore, “the end” will not come and the “coming” of Jesus will not happen until the gospel is “preached in the whole world.” That is the condition that must be fulfilled prior to the return of Jesus Christ. Both the worldwide preaching of the gospel and the future return of Jesus Christ are interdependent and inseparable.

A Critical Assumption

It is assumed in modern Christianity that the preaching of the “gospel” to the entire planet has been an ongoing commission to Christians since after the resurrection of Christ some 2000 years ago (Matthew 28:19-20).  That is believed because of several other underlying assumptions: all races came from Adam and “the world” and “nations” means the planet and everybody on it.

Unless it can be demonstrated biblically that those underlying assumptions are correct, then the widely-accepted commission to preach the gospel in the entire planet to every racial kind and racial mix is suspect. So, the question arises, “Is it biblically valid to understand this commission as ongoing and not yet fulfilled or is this an errant teaching?”

The Question Is Answered

I am in disagreement with the popular teaching of modern Christianity that the so-called “Great Commission” is still ongoing and that it is applicable to all races other than Adamic Israel. In my first four books, and particularly Books Three and Four, I thoroughly discuss the meaning of “world” and “nations.” I show these do not refer to the planet and all races, respectively. These words, in fact, refer to the “world” of Israel and the “nations” of Israel in the biblical context.

If that is a correct conclusion, then the “Great Commission” as typically understood by modern Christianity is now suspect as to its scope. But yet, it is a question as to whether Matthew 24:14 is still ongoing or has it been fulfilled? That question has been decisively answered in Book Four, God’s Covenant Creation, chapter 7.  Yes, Matthew 24:14 has already been fulfilled.

The Return of Jesus Christ

If the “gospel of the Kingdom” has already been preached to Israel, then this condition has been fulfilled in respect to the coming of Jesus. Therefore, “the end” has already come, the “abomination of desolation” has already taken place and Jesus has come again.

The modern Christian understanding of the ongoing commission of Matthew 24:14 is not true. If that teaching falters, so does the teaching of a future time-frame for the coming of Jesus. They are interdependent on each other.

For a comprehensive discussion on the subject of the time-frame of Jesus’s coming, please read Book Six, The Biblical Story of Prophecy.”

The Modern Generic God

One belief that is common to Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses and like religious sects is that God is generic. That is, God is inclusive and not exclusive with respect to all races and racial sub-types. God is, in the end, the God of all. The theory that God is the generic God is not just a modern phenomenon, but has its roots many centuries back.

Modernly, however, it has been increasingly popularized since the Protestant Reformation, the so-called Great Awakenings, and with the modern foreign missions movement. (See The Greatest Deception of Our Time, Book Five.)  Is this really important to talk about? Absolutely! Why?  Read on.

A Matter of What God Has Ordained

The conclusion about whether the Bible teaches an inclusive or exclusive God is of critical importance because it goes to the heart of authority. More specifically, it defines what and who God has ordained to administer His Kingdom here and now. From the beginning narrative of Genesis 1:26-28, God created Adam (male and female) to rule and subdue. That was God’s ordained purpose for Adam and why He created Adam in His image and likeness. Divinely-ordained authority to manifest God’s Kingdom was given to Adam. That truth was also extended to Adam’s racial family line by the command “be fruitful and multiply.”

The order of authority was God first and then Adamkind. That’s the way God set it up. That was God’s Kingdom order of authority.

The Question of Adam’s Race

So, this begs the question: “Did God create Adam (male and female) as the parents from which all races came forth or were they the parents of only one race among other races?” The answer to this question goes to the origin and heart of whether God is generic or not.

Those who believe in a generic God must first believe that He created all races from one set of parents (Adam).  Therefore, all races represent Adamkind, commonly spoken of as all “humankind” or “the human family” or “the family of man.” Not only is this the common belief among “Christian” religious sects, but heartily advocated by Judaism and the political forces of this world system. It is one of the central pillars of the New World Order or New International Monetary Order. Generic “humanity” demands a generic god from a religious worldview.

Contrary to the well-accepted belief in a generic god is the fact that the God of the Bible is exclusive. That is, God has ordained, from the beginning, that He has created and chosen one race among others to be His servant-administrator to manifest His Kingdom. That idea, of course, is hotly contested and denounced as “unbiblical” and “racist” and “White supremacy.” But these are just mindless “name and shame” tactics used when there is no valid theological argument to back up their claim that the God of the Bible is generic. (In God’s Covenant Creation, Book Four, I go into depth on the race issue.)  Believers in a generic god have no valid theological or scientific basis to support their claim. It is an unproven presumption that God created all races from Adam and Eve.

The God Who Does Not Change

Be that as it may, the generic god idea still must also be supported by the evidence that the God of the Old Testament changed when we get to the New Testament. It’s pretty well documented that the God of the Old Testament was specifically the God of Israel – the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. From Genesis 12 through Malachi, God was consistently represented as the exclusive God of Israel, His chosen Adamic family. In that respect, He was not a generic God.

But somehow, modern religion claims that God changed in the New Testament. He is no longer the exclusive God of Israel, but has become the generic god of all races. Now they say that Jesus the Christ not only taught about the Kingdom, but shed His blood on the cross for the sins of everyone on the planet – Israel included. This, despite the fact that Jesus actually said: “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 15:24). His blood was shed to ratify the New Covenant (Luke 22:20) which was for the house of Israel and the house of Judah (Jeremiah 31:31-33; Hebrews 8:8-10).

And there is not one shred of evidence in the rest of the New Testament to indicate that God changed and now opened up His redemptive work to all the other races. How about the “Gentiles” that were “grafted in”? Glad you asked. Discover the Story of Your Biblical Heritage, Book One, is a great place to get those questions answered.

God said, “For I, the Lord, do not change” (Malachi 3:6) and “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

It’s About Authority

So, what’s the point of all this discussion? God’s Kingdom was ordained from the beginning to be manifested in and through the Adamic race – not many races. The Adamic family of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was chosen and redeemed to be His People to bring in His Kingdom of righteousness, justice, order and peace.

Apart from that plan and purpose, His Kingdom cannot be realized here and now.

The generic god is a powerless god. The generic god is a god created in the imagination of men. The generic god is a false god because the idea has zero biblical foundation. The generic god is a gross violation of the first commandment – “You shall have no other gods before Me” (Exodus 20:3).

When we are ready and willing to repent of this sin and embrace the True and Living God, then God will begin to work in and through His Covenant People. And this wicked world system we complain so much about will be defeated. Until then, expect the worst.

Behind the Human Rights Movement Deception

There is a well-disguised veil that hides the true nature and intent of the “human rights” movement. It is now reinforced by modern religion that labels itself “biblical Christianity.” There is a growing, ever-present network of human rights watch dogs patrolling the landscape ready to expose and denounce anyone or anything that remotely might suggest “White supremacy.” Of course, it’s always that, isn’t it? It’s always about the evil White people who “hate” other races – right? And the “human rights” trolls know how to put White people in their place with tactics such as “name and shame” with full media access and approval. But is the human rights movement about protecting and advancing the rights of all races and cultures?

On the Surface

If you read through the UN’s “Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” one can be constantly impressed with fine-sounding declarations:

“…the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family… human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want … universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms…” – Preamble

That all sounds great. But you have to go beyond the document itself to understand the real purpose and intent of such rhetoric.

Context of “Human Rights”

Unless you understand the context behind the human rights movement, you will not see the veil of deception. First, the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” is an integral part of the United Nations. The United States (federal government) is a “permanent member” of the United Nations. So, the present United States federal government has subscribed to honor and promote the human rights agenda. We see that carried out as laws and policies to enforce “equality” of just about everything now.

Second, the United Nations is loosely tied to the private International Monetary Fund and the United States federal government is the majority stockholder in it. The government has enlisted the private Federal Reserve banking system as a “fiscal depository” of the IMF by which “income taxes” are collected to pay the interest on a fraudulently created debt of trillions of “dollars.”

The question is: What does all this have to do with “human rights”?

A Usury Debt System

The United States federal government and the international monetary system is primarily controlled by the IMF and World Bank, including a network of interlocking “banks.” This network system was created and is sustained by the control and use of “money.” Specifically, the system owes its existence to creating “money” out of thin air with a few strokes of a keyboard in order to loan “money” to governments, businesses and individuals. Additionally, interest (usury) is attached to these loans which may seem okay in the short term, but mathematically is impossible to pay off in the long run, resulting in default.

So, the banking system, in order to survive, needs an inexhaustible stream of borrowers. Hence, the system seeks all individuals (of all races), businesses and governments to bring into a permanent position of dependency through debt – the borrower is slave to the lender. In order to achieve that, there must be equality of all races so that all may be accepted as equals, particularly in all White nations. Why? Because if the other races immigrate and live in these White nations, then there will be more borrowers. And the other non-White countries must also be brought into the fold through the same monetary system.

And then let’s not forget the objective of the human rights movement: to work toward “redistribution of wealth.” That means, the civilized, wealthy White nations must now, in the name of human rights, give up their wealth for others and, in the end, be saddled with their debt as well.

This plan works just fine for the banking elite, as it helps sustain and ensure their system. Human rights is just one of the necessary means to their end goal: the complete dominion of the entire planet.

1861-1865

The same thing happened as the real reason for the War of Northern Aggression. The so-called “Civil War” was not about ending slavery. It was about the northern banking establishment eliminating the prosperous, debt-free southern states as competition. It was about creating more borrowers in their usury debt system by “freeing the black slaves” and by the “Reconstruction” of the southern states, bringing them to heel.

In effect, through that war, the banking system was able to create a whole bunch more slaves by their unlawful monetary system.

So, you see, the human rights movement is not about securing humanitarian rights for all “human beings.” It’s about making everyone slaves to be used, abused and controlled by the international banking establishment. Don’t buy into all the propaganda about equality and integration of races and cultures. It’s a scheme of deception. And in reality, the promoters of “human rights” are knowingly or not, the very perpetrators of “hate” that they accuse others of – especially when it comes to the White race. I call them “useful idiots.”

Red Pill Expo and “White Supremacy”

My wife and I recently attended the first annual Red Pill Expo held in Bozeman, Montana. The tagline was: “Because you know something is wrong.” It was attended by nearly 600 people and featured many speakers. A variety of topics were discussed challenging major issues of the day such as global warming and the green movement, money and economics, income tax, health care, 9/11 and so forth. It was very well organized and well worth our time to attend.

Covering this event was the Bozeman Daily Chronicle which posted an article: “Activists: Convention in Bozeman is ‘alt-right’ recruitment effort.” The article alluded to the Montana Human Rights Network and co-director Rachel Carroll Rivas who said “the wide-ranging topics are purposefully designed to recruit people to White supremacist or ‘alt-right’ causes.”1 So, this article was implying that the Red Pill Expo was overtly or covertly designed as a White supremacist event. “White nationalist” was also mentioned.

The Red Pill Expo

The website of the Expo had as its purpose to “help you break free from the avalanche of propaganda, fake news and outright deception, and to embrace reality for a better life.” That’s exactly what the Expo fulfilled.

So, what about this media and “human rights” accusation that the Red Pill Expo was really about White supremacy? Apparently, they didn’t realize that two of the speakers were not White. Sherry Jackson was a Black female, a former CPA who was put in prison for three years on a misdemeanor for exposing the IRS and its fraudulent income tax system. Another speaker was Robert Kiyosaki, famous author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad.” He is Asian.

How is it, then, that the media and Montana Human Rights Network labeled this a recruiting event for alt-right and White supremacy? Are they stupid? No, they are not stupid. They know exactly what they are doing. They don’t care about truth. They care about fulfilling their mission to counter any person, event or movement with a “name and shame” tactic. Why? To dissuade anyone else from finding out about what’s really going on out there. If these radical, Bible-hating liberals can label someone or something “White supremacy” they know they can scare people away. After all, who wants to be labeled as a “White supremacist”? It’s the worst possible epithet that can be pinned on someone. Conventional media and so-called human rights organizations use their best tactic: smear. Who cares about truth?

Social Engineering

The reason that most White people react and avoid any association with “White supremacy” is the result of decades of carefully-planned social engineering. I discuss this in my book, The Greatest Deception of Our Time. This includes religion, government, education and media efforts to inseparably connect White nationalism and racial interests with White supremacy, Nazism, the KKK, slavery, anti-Semitism (read anti-Jew) and, of course, hate.

And anyone or anything that smacks of views antithetical to mainstream government and media propaganda is slapped with the label “White supremacist.” It’s a tactic. It’s meant to be perceived as the ultimate condemnation. It is hoped that you will run away as fast as you can. White people have been programmed to do so.

The “Human Rights” Movement is Anti-White

The Human Rights Movement is a hypocritical fraud. Supposedly based on the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”2 out of the United Nations, there are a number of Articles explaining what “human rights” is all about. I’ll just cite four examples and apply it to White people and their historic nations.

Article 3.   Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.”

Does that apply to White people? What if White people prefer to be with their own kind, provide schools for their own children and desire to secure a homeland for themselves to protect their own life, liberty and security? No, that’s forbidden to White people.

Article 8.   Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.”

White people are not allowed a “remedy” for their “fundamental rights” to secure a separate homeland and other necessities for life, liberty and security.

Article 15.    (1) Everyone has the right to a nationality.”

A right to nationality? Are you kidding? How about forced immigration of non-Whites into White countries? Whites have no such right. This doesn’t happen in China or Japan – only in historic White countries.

Article 18.   Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”

Whites are not allowed to express their thoughts about race if it’s contrary to the equality and diversity movement. And if they do, they are labeled “White supremacists.”

White Supremacy

What exactly is “White supremacy”? It’s been defined for us. Here are a couple of modern definitions:

“White supremacy: The social, economic, and political repression and exploitation of nonwhite peoples, esp. blacks, by White people, based on notions of racial superiority.” – www.yourdictionary.com/White-supremacy

“White supremacist: An advocate of White supremacy, a person who believes that the White race is inherently superior to other races and that White people should have control over people of other races.” – en.wiktionary.org/wiki/White_supremacist

Repression and exploitation and control over nonwhite peoples?  I don’t know any White person who wants to repress and exploit other races. I do know White people (including myself) who want to be left alone. I do know White people who seek out their own kind and prefer their own churches and schools. I know White people who want their own nation. But, of course, that’s White supremacy. If you don’t join in the equality and diversity hoopla – you’re a White supremacist. A racist. A hater.

The truth of the matter is that those self-righteous “human rights” groups are racist haters of White people. Period.

Alt-Right Condemned by Southern Baptists – Part 2

As I explained in Part 1, the recent Southern Baptist Convention has officially condemned the Alt-Right movement.  Labeling the Alt-Right as “racist” and “white supremacists” and proponents of “racial and ethnic hatred” sounds a lot like a typical, unthinking, non-Christian “human rights” group. Was it the knee-jerk reaction about their “racist past” that the Southern Baptists want to rectify in order to exonerate themselves before the world as the now racially-inclusive group? Proudly and confidently, Southern Baptist leader Ed Stetzer declared, “The alt-right is antithetical to the Christian gospel.” Justified at last!

Southern Baptist Theology

So, I was interested in finding out exactly what the Southern Baptist theological basis is for them to say that “the Alt-Right is antithetical to the Christian gospel.” Let’s see what they say. There were a number of points, so I’ll just address four.

Under the Proposed Resolution #10 called “On the Anti-Gospel of Alt-Right White Supremacy” that was finally approved, we come to the first point:

“WHEREAS, Scripture teaches, ‘From one man [God] has made every nationality to live over the whole earth and has determined their appointed times and the boundaries of where they live’ (Acts 17:26); …”1

It is commonly assumed that this verse means that all races (“every nationality”) came from Adam (or Noah). The implication, of course, is that all races have a common origin and all share equally in the same bloodline created by God. I have written extensively on this in God’s Covenant Creation (Book Four) of the Covenant Heritage Series. The Southern Baptist theory is based on a further assumption that the Bible is a universally and racially inclusive story about the “human race.” But the Bible never even alludes to that. God created Adam uniquely and the Bible is the historical record of his race (Genesis 5:1). The Southern Baptists (and all Catholic and Protestant churches) don’t ask, “Was Adam’s race inclusive of all races or is it one among many races?” And if they did ask that question, what does the evidence of the Bible suggest or prove is the best answer of the two possible conclusions?

Take the genealogies from Genesis chapters 5-11. Within those chapters the genealogies comprise about 42% of all the verses. And what do these genealogies tell us? Two things. First, there is a specific family line from Adam to Noah among the other families within the Adamic race. Second, the genealogies imply the same genetic bloodline. Noah, for example, was the same race as Adam. Same genetics – same race. The other races are not even mentioned.

Isn’t this common sense? There are a few attempts at some fantastic (fantasy) theories about how all races came from Adam (or Noah), but I thoroughly debunk them in God’s Covenant Creation,  Book Four. But the common, unfailing and repeatable law of nature is reproduced time after time: kind after kind. Two pure White people, male and female, produce only a White child. Chinese produce Chinese. Black Africans produce black Africans. Every time. The repeatable experience of this law of nature is commonly experienced and understood, but incredibly denied by this theological theory that all races came from Adam. It’s stupid!

But this false point of theology is the basis for the inclusive racial equality movement. Hence, those in the Alt-Right movement are condemned because they believe in racial and political separation. There may not be a lot of professing “Christians” in the Alt-Right, but they have more common sense than a lot of those high-octane theologians out there.

More Theological Assumptions

There are more points that presume to support a racially-inclusive “gospel.” I’ll just briefly mention a few:

“WHEREAS, The Psalmist proclaimed, ‘The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the LORD’ (Psalm 24:1) …”

Once again, unfounded, unbiblical presumption about the meanings of “earth” and “world.” These word definitions are handled in Book Four, God’s Covenant Creation. They don’t mean the planet and every person on it!

“WHEREAS, Scripture proclaims that Jesus is purchasing by His blood believers ‘from every tribe and language and people and nation’ (Revelation 5:9) …”

In what context is that phrase used? Revelation was written to and about Israel. This is handled in Book Six, The Biblical Story of Prophecy.

“WHEREAS, We know from our Southern Baptist history the effects of the horrific sins of racism and hatred; and…”

Hey Southern Baptists – do you know what “racism” even means? And who is now hating who? And who is calling the conviction of White people who prefer their own kind over the others “sin”? What law of God is being transgressed here? I John 3:4 defines sin as the transgression of God’s law. The Southern Baptists (and they are not alone) are redefining sin and going beyond what is written in the Bible.

Resolution for the Racists and Deceived

At the conclusion of these points of errant theology, the Southern Baptists made this resolution in part:

“RESOLVED, That we earnestly pray, both for those who advocate racist ideologies and those who are thereby deceived, that they may see their error through the light of the Gospel, repent of these hatreds, and come to know the peace and love of Christ through redeemed fellowship in the Kingdom of God, which is established from every nation, tribe, people, and language.”

Thank you so much that heartfelt, prayerful resolution. It really touched me. So lovingly concerned.

Here is my message to the Southern Baptists and all those who continue to spew forth unwarranted and unprovable theology. You don’t know what you’re talking about or what you so confidently affirm.

Repent! Repent of your lies that continue to lead God’s true Covenant People down the road of destruction and deception. Repent of preaching a false gospel and a false Jesus.

And to the advocates of the Alt-Right movement I say, “You are heading in the right direction. Don’t give up on the Bible and Jesus Christ. What you are seeing and hearing out there in church-land is NOT biblical Christianity.” Do you want to know what the Bible actually says and means? The Bible is about your race – the Caucasian race!

Alt-Right Condemned by Southern Baptists – Part 1

Recently the Southern Baptist Convention created and approved a resolution condemning the Alt-Right movement.1 The first resolution “initially didn’t make it to the floor” but “after some late-night scrambling” a resolution was introduced and passed “to explicitly condemn the alt-right movement.” Why? Because the Southern Baptist leadership labels it with the usual tired epitaphs of “racism and white supremacy.” But of interest to me is why the Southern Baptists condemn the Alt-Right from a theological perspective.

The Alt-Right

But before I get into that, let’s try to define the Alt-Right. What is it? There are a number of websites who espouse this movement and a few mostly recognized leaders such as Richard Spencer2 and Jared Taylor of American Renaissance.3 Taylor perhaps offers the best review of what the Alt-Right is.4 I’ll just gather a few selections so we can get a flavor of it:

“It is a broad, dissident movement that rejects egalitarian orthodoxies. These orthodoxies require us to believe that the sexes are equivalent, that race is meaningless, that all cultures and religions are equally valuable …The entire Alt Right is united in contempt for the idea that race is only a ‘social construct.’ … Race is a biological fact…. the Alt Right recognizes that whites have legitimate interests as a people. One of the most obvious is to resist the waves of non-white immigration that are dispossessing us…. The Alt Right laughs at the idea that ‘diversity is a strength.’ Diversity of language, religion, but especially of race bring conflict and tension…. When the Alt Right dissents from racial orthodoxy, it can count on being called names. The liberals’ favorite is ‘white supremacist,’ which is the most emotionally charged way to try to discredit a white person.” – Jared Taylor4

The Alt-Right is pretty much a secular movement and many reject any relevance of the Bible or what passes as Christianity in respect to its concerns and convictions. Honestly, an increasing number of White people realize the danger and eventual non-existence of their race if the tolerance and diversity racial and multicultural forces continue to have their way. And those in the Alt-Right movement reject the racial equality and diversity agenda and theology of both the Catholic and Protestant religions. These religions are expressly anti-White and, in the minds of those in the Alt-Right, support a destructive pattern of racial and cultural inclusion including non-White immigration and all kinds of racial integration like interracial adoption and racial intermarriage. The Alt-Right rejects modern “Christianity” and their churches because modern “Christianity” discriminates against White people.

What Southern Baptists Say About the Alt-Right

Just as the Alt-Right rejects so-called Christianity and the Bible as destructive, so the Southern Baptist denomination, like many others, rejects and condemns the Alt-Right. Let me give you a few quotes. The first one comes from the Southern Baptist resolution itself:

“Racism and white supremacy are, sadly, not extinct but present all over the world in various white supremacist movements, sometimes known as ‘white nationalism’ or ‘alt-right.’ The messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention … decry every form of racism, including alt-right white supremacy, as antithetical to the gospel of Jesus Christ…. We denounce and repudiate white supremacy and every form of racial and ethnic hatred as of the devil.”5

In the original resolution, Texas pastor Dwight McKissic stated:

“There has arisen in the United States a growing menace to political order and justice that seeks to reignite social animosities, reverse improvements in race relations, divide our people, and foment hatred, classism, and ethnic cleansing… this toxic menace, self-identified among some of its chief proponents as ‘White Nationalism’ and the ‘Alt-Right,’ must be opposed for the totalitarian impulses, xenophobic biases, and bigoted ideologies that infect the minds and actions of its violent disciples.”6

Ed Stetzer, executive director of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism and Wheaton College, blogged this in support of the Southern Baptist resolution:

“It’s easy to denounce generic ‘racism,’ but sometimes you need to name it, even if it’s hard. And the alt-right is racist & sinful.”7

The Southern Baptist (political) Convention condemns the Alt-Right because it is “White Supremacy,” “White Nationalism,” “racist” and “sinful.” Of course, definitions of these words and phrases are only vague ideas and are never really defined. But who cares. The Southern Baptists are content to puff out their collective chests and fall in line with the politically correct and religiously acceptable culture of the day.

It’s About Theology

You would think that the evangelical compassion of the Southern Baptists would graciously open up communication lines with the Alt-Right so they could persuade them about how “wrong” Alt-Right advocates are and preach “the gospel” to them. Tell them how “sinful” the Alt-Right is and set them straight on the “right” biblical doctrines. Get ‘em saved and baptized into the fold.

And what is the theological foundation of the Southern Baptist rejection and condemnation of the Alt-Right?

If you understand that, you understand the vehement opposition of the Southern Baptists with regard to the Alt-Right.

Do the Southern Baptists’ doctrinal beliefs warrant their response about the Alt-Right? Yes, they do. But the more important question is, “Are their doctrinal beliefs justified as true, correct and certain according to the cumulative evidence of the Bible?” Is their theology biblical?

That’s what I will examine next time in Part 2.

In the meantime, won’t you forward this article to your Southern Baptist and Alt-Right contacts?

The Great Commission and Jesus’ Coming

When I was attending a typical Baptist church and studying at a Baptist seminary way back in the 70s, I was taught that there was one fulfillment that must happen before Jesus Christ could return. The Great Commission (as it is called) that Jesus gave to His disciples in Matthew 28:19-20 – that is, the “gospel of the Kingdom” must “be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations” before “the end” and before Jesus could return (Matthew 24:14). The Great Commission and the gospel preached in all the “world” (Mark 16:15) was a necessary condition still to be fulfilled in order for Jesus to return.

The Missionary Movement

As a result of this theological teaching, I and many others set out to help fulfill that Great Commission. My wife and I went to the Philippines where she grew up as a missionary kid. Her American parents were medical missionaries there for decades. The great thrust of foreign missions especially from after World War II until the present time has been the central emphasis of practically all churches, denominations and other religious organizations.

Behind it all is this motivation: Every “human being” must hear the gospel and have the opportunity to “be saved” before Jesus can come again. Furthermore, “the end” (the end of time, end of the world, or whatever) will not come unless the peoples on the planet hear the gospel. Therefore, we must dedicate ourselves – no matter the cost – to fulfill that Great Commission! Onward Christian soldiers! Right?

Well, Hold On

There are a number of problems with this idea of the Great Commission and Jesus’ coming. I cannot address them all here and really the whole context of the Bible must be examined on the present relevancy of the Great Commission, which I have done in Book Six, The Biblical Story of Prophecy So, let me just briefly mention three:

  1. The Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20 and Mark 16:15 was given by Jesus to His disciples. Where in the New Testament does it ever explicitly or implicitly extend this command beyond the lifetime of Jesus’ disciples in the first century AD? It’s only an assumption.
  2. The “whole world” (Matthew 24:14) and “all creation” (Mark 16:15) that this gospel was to be preached to was only a limited land area of that time – the Roman Empire and everywhere the people of Israel lived (see God’s Covenant Creation, Book Four). It’s only an assumption that these phrases were to be interpreted globally.
  3. The Great Commission and the gospel preached was already fulfilled during the lifetime of the Apostle Paul. In chapter six of my new book, The Biblical Story of Prophecy I discuss this matter and present three clear biblical references that tell us that the Great Commission and the preaching of the gospel had already been fulfilled. Here they are:

“Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which has been kept secret for long ages past, but now is manifested, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the eternal God, has been made known to all the nations, leading to obedience of faith…” – Romans 16:25-26

“…because of the hope laid up for you in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel which has come to you, just as in all the world also it is constantly bearing fruit and increasing, even as it has been doing in you also since the day you heard of it and understood the grace of God in truth … if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister.”  –  Colossians 1:5-6, 23

“But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that through me the proclamation might be fully accomplished, and that all the Gentiles might hear; and I was rescued out of the lion’s mouth.”  –  II Timothy 4:17

So, if that’s what the Bible says, and the Great Commission was fulfilled in the first century AD, then what does that imply about Jesus’ “second coming”?

Exclusive or Inclusive?

The answer to the time frame of Jesus’ coming is determined by what the Bible actually says. Was it written to an exclusive family of a race of people or is it now inclusive of all races? It’s one or the other. Is the Great Commission and the gospel applicable to Israel – the covenant people of God, or does it embrace every “human being” on the planet?

Furthermore, is the coming of Jesus Christ relevant to a particular people and geographical locality or is it relevant to all races globally?

Your answer will determine your understanding of the necessary time frame of Jesus’ coming in history and the purpose of that coming in the biblical context.  However, the truth of the matter cannot be discovered based upon assumption and personal opinion. Remember, no interpretation of prophecy is a matter of private interpretation (II Peter 1:20). It is only found in studying prophecy and what Jesus and the Apostles taught in the biblical context. You may find these answers in my book The Biblical Story of Prophecy Click here to order your copy today.

PS  One more question: If the Great Commission has been eliminated as the reason for the assumed delay in Jesus’ return, what other possible reason would there be for a nearly 2,000 year gap between Jesus’ first and second coming?

Book 6 – The Biblical Story of Prophecy

I am pleased to now make available Book 6 in the Covenant Heritage Series, The Biblical Story of Prophecy My goal in researching and writing this book was to present a systematic teaching from the evidence of the Bible to determine the time frame of the “second coming” of Jesus Christ. As I have attempted to do in all the books of the Covenant Heritage Series, I have paid close attention to examining the biblical text based on the accepted principles of interpretation in order to discover what the Bible says and means.

The Necessary Context of Prophecy

The subject of Bible prophecy is always an interesting topic to many. But an accurate understanding of prophecy is not possible apart from a prior knowledge of the context of prophecy. This context is developed in the first four books of the Covenant Heritage Series If this context of what the Bible is about and who it is written for is not understood, this new book, The Biblical Story of Prophecy, will not be correctly discerned.

So, I strongly recommend that if you have not read at least these first four books prior to reading this new one that you do so first. I have created a special discount price for a set of all six books of the Covenant Heritage Series.

Interpreting Prophecy in Context

As you may already know, you can download the introduction and first two chapters of The Biblical Story of Prophecy here. But I want to share an additional excerpt from chapter three in regard to this critical idea of the importance of interpreting prophecy in context.

“As evidenced in the Covenant Heritage Series (in Books One through Four), from Genesis to Revelation the Bible has one major, consistent theme. It is the story of God’s unfolding plan and purpose to establish and manifest His Kingdom in and through His ordained and anointed covenant people. Through the covenant family line of Adam, Seth, Noah and Shem, God chose Abraham and his physical descendants through Isaac and Jacob to be His people. They are identified today as the descendants of the Northwestern European peoples. They are the people of the New Covenant in Jesus Christ through whom God’s Kingdom is established and restored.” – page 17

“In respect to the ‘second coming’ of Jesus Christ, all prophecy thereof must be interpreted in the light of the fulfillment and restoration of the Kingdom unto Israel. In other words, the whole context of the Bible demands that this coming of Jesus is:

  • About Israel and not anyone else;
  • About the Kingdom as it pertains to Israel and not to everyone else on the planet; and
  • About covenant judgment of God’s wrath and salvation from His wrath. The recipients of both God’s wrath and salvation are Israelites, as only Israel was in a covenant relationship with God under the law (Old Covenant) and New Covenant in Jesus Christ (Hebrews 8:8; 9:15).

Thus, the coming of Jesus Christ is not a global event nor the end of human history nor the end of the planet nor the end of time. It is about the Father dealing with His people by covenant through His Son to judge and to save. Maintaining consistency of the context of the entire Bible is therefore critical to understanding the reasons for Jesus’ coming. Prophecy about His coming concerns Israel only and cannot be understood apart from this context.” – page 21

Do you want to understand biblical prophecy in respect to the coming of Jesus Christ? Then you will need to first understand the biblical context of prophecy.

Implications

At the end of this new book, The Biblical Story of Prophecy, I discuss the real implications of Jesus’ coming for our time and our lives now. My desire is to help provide a vision and realization about what our privileged responsibilities are now. I believe this book will be an encouragement to all who seek first His Kingdom and righteousness.

I commend it to you! To order your copy now, just click here.
