What the Bible Says about Racial Intermarriage

Our modern culture of diversity and inclusion is not opposed to racial intermarriage or any form of race-mixing. Increasingly, this lifestyle is promoted and accepted as “normal” in the media and entertainment industry, government policy, and churches. Fewer people of any race than ever before oppose such a practice as forbidden. Tolerance is the new religion of “love” and it feels so right!

Secular and Religious

It matters not whether a favorable acceptance of racial intermixture in marriage comes from the secular realm or the religious world. Both are in agreement. Racial intermarriage is okay.

I can understand why the “new age” religions would accept this. Most of them are based on either Hinduism or this idea of “the universe” – whatever basis they have for “it just feels right” or “it’s all about love.”

But the Catholic and Protestant religious systems, who claim to be conforming to the biblical standard, are just as supportive of racial integration. It makes sense though. If the consensus of opinion is that all races came from Adam, then all have a common origin and are, therefore, equal. So, why not marry interracially and produce racial mixes? It makes no difference. Many would call that “biblical.”

What the Bible Says

Of course, as I have said before and consistently wrote about in my books, there is also absolutely no evidence in the Bible, history or genetic science regarding this assumption which is commonly accepted as fact. There is no provable foundation to say that all races have a common origin in Adam.

What the Bible does say is that God created Adam, male and female, in His image and likeness and commanded them to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:26-27. And then, from the first Adam and Eve, children were born and successive records of genealogies show a direct, unbroken descent (Genesis 5, 10 and 11). The “nations” of the Bible are all of one race – the race of Adam and Eve. The nations of the Bible do not include any other race nor does the Bible imply the popular, all-inclusive “human race” theory.  The problem is that the “Christian” religious world would like to add in their theories about how this one racial family line somehow became all the races and racial subtypes we see today.  See my discussion of this in Book Four, God’s Covenant Creation.

Instead of just admitting the plain, simple evidence of what the Bible says, they have complicated things by going beyond Scripture, integrating their own scenarios. Of course, they just try to justify their approach of racial intermarriage and the universal racial application of the Bible. How would they ever justify world missions otherwise?

The Critical Issue

There are two differing conclusions about racial origins and racial intermarriage. But it’s not just a difference of opinion that can be debated academically, as if there were no critical consequence. Consider the following logic:

  1. God chose to create a race of people in His own image and likeness.
  2. He did so to give them a commission and purpose – to “be fruitful and multiply” and to “subdue” and “rule” the earth.
  3. God set the Adamic race over all the rest of creation in order to administrate everything according to God’s laws. We could say that God created Adam to rule in His kingdom like an owner of an estate equips how son to manage it. God equipped Adam to perform that function by creating him in His image and likeness.
  4. That rulership and commission would be inherited by Adam’s physical descendants.
  5. As God created Adam in His image and likeness, so that image was passed on to his descendants. The critical connection is revealed in Genesis 5:1-3:

1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. 2 He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created.   3 When Adam had lived one hundred and thirty years, he became the father of a son in his own likeness, according to his image, and named him Seth.”

God’s image and likeness in Adam and his wife was passed on to Seth and on down through a special family line to Noah (Genesis 5). By implication, this image and likeness of God was retained throughout the generations of Adam.

Consequence of Racial Intermarriage

So, what happens when that image and likeness is broken by non-Adamic racial intermarriage that produces racially-mixed children? No longer is that racially pure image and likeness of God retained. It is completely compromised and significantly diminished.

The biological DNA integrity is necessary to retain the integrity of God’s image and likeness. If the DNA is compromised, so is the image and likeness of God. Thus, God’s created order for Adam and all of His creation is forever obliterated.  This is encompassed in the commandment “Thou shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14).  Adultery means to mix something that was pure (subsequent statutes in regard to race-mixing can be seen in Leviticus 18:23 and 20:15-16). The marriage relationship is sacred and the key to protecting the race of Adam in order to fulfill God’s commission and purpose for creating Adam in the first place. That’s why it was the death penalty to commit adultery in any form.

The Bible says that racial intermarriage destroys God’s created order of authority and the integrity of the Adamic race and their purpose to rule and reign with God in righteousness, order and peace.

What the Bible Says about White Supremacy – Part 2

An honest, cursory review of history reveals that the past great civilizations were built by White people, the White race.

  • Sumer (c.3100-2300 B.C.)
  • Phoenicia (c.3000 B.C.)
  • Egypt (c.3000-526 B.C.; founded by Menes, descendant of Ham—Psalm 78:51; 105:23,27)
  • Assyria (c.2400-607 B.C.)
  • the Indus Valley of north-western India (c.2000 B.C.)
  • Persia (c.2000-331 B.C.)
  • Greece (c.750-168 B.C.)
  • Parthia (c.500 B.C.-A.D.225)
  • Rome (c.500 B.C.-A.D.33)

All of these civilizations sprang from the Adamic or White race (also a synonym for Aryan, Indo-European, and Nordic).

The Bible, Israelites, and White People

But what does that have to do with the Bible in respect to White people? The biblical genealogies from Adam on reveal a common, uninterrupted family line to Noah and later Abraham (Genesis chapters 5-11). This selective genealogy continued on to Isaac, Jacob and the 12 tribes of Israel. The rest of the Old and New Testaments (Genesis 12-Revelation) are about those people.

Contrary to popular religious opinion, which falsely teaches that the people of Israel are today’s Jews, the true physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are the descendants of the northwest, European people – the Anglo-Celto-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian and kindred people. This truth is almost universally unknown today and heartily condemned by the modern religious world. But nobody who rejects this truth has done their research. I have, and I wrote a book about it, Identifying Biblical Israel Today. So, for the sake of argument (because it’s virtually impossible to have an intelligent conversation with an ignorant person), you will just have to accept my statement about who the chosen covenant Adamic family line is – for now, at least. Many of you already know.

So, if the real Israelites are a portion of the White race, what does God say about them, in respect to White supremacy? Let’s begin with Deuteronomy 7:12-14:

“Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the LORD your God will keep with you His covenant and His lovingkindness which He swore to your forefathers. He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock, in the land which He swore to your forefathers to give you. You shall be blessed above all peoples; there will be no male or female barren among you or among your cattle.”

If Israel obeyed the laws of God, He would keep “His covenant” with them and bless them “above all peoples,” among other promises. Of course, this blessing of supremacy above all peoples was conditional under the Old Covenant.

God’s Choosing

This blessing is repeated in Deuteronomy 10:14-15:

“Behold, to the LORD your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it. Yet on your fathers did the LORD set His affection to love them, and He chose their descendants after them, even you above all peoples, as it is this day.”

The blessing of supremacy and God’s choosing Israel was rooted in God’s love for their fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Deuteronomy 26:18-19 it states:

“The LORD has today declared you to be His people, a treasured possession, as He promised you, and that you should keep all His commandments; and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, for praise, fame, and honor; and that you shall be a consecrated people to the LORD your God, as He has spoken.”

Speaking to Israel, Moses confirmed that God would “set you high above all nations.”

Once again, God promises that He would bless Israel, setting them “high above all the nations” (Deuteronomy 28:1) and specifically describing that supremacy:

“The LORD shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven ways.” – Deuteronomy 28:7

The LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath, if you listen to the commandments of the LORD your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully…” – Deuteronomy 28:13

Deuteronomy 28 contains the blessings and curses God said He would do if Israel obeyed Him or disobeyed Him, respectively. Again, the blessing of supremacy was conditional. On the other hand, the curses are also conditional. It would be instructive to take the time to read all of Deuteronomy 28.

Why Did God Choose Israel to Be in Dominion?

The point is that it was the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who decreed and placed Israel in a position of supremacy. Why? Because Israel was ordained to be God’s servant to bring forth righteousness and justice and establish His Kingdom. It’s a matter of an order of authority. That’s how God’s Kingdom operates. God’s Kingdom is about order and peace.

But alas, there is nothing but increasing chaos and oppression all over the planet. The Israel of God today has been misidentified as the “Jews.” The real Israel, for decades and centuries, has rejected their heritage, the God of their fathers, and His laws. Consequently, their nations have been the tail and their enemies rule over them.

Nothing will change until they seek the God of their fathers, humble themselves and repent. Unless they turn back to their Creator, their nations along with the rest of “humanity” will continue to suffer and be destroyed by God’s enemies.

Created and Ordained

White people are superior to the other races, as expressed in their culture and civilizations, only because they were made in the image of God. They are the descendants of biblical Israel and their God has ordained that they be elevated above all other peoples for the sake of His Kingdom. However, they are incapable of fulfilling this responsibility unless they repent and come under the rule and reign of Jesus Christ, their Kinsman Redeemer. One day that will come about when true Israel has decided it has suffered enough and has nowhere else to turn for deliverance except the Lord their God. The promise of II Chronicles 7:13-14 still stands. Read it!

“If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

I realize this is a very uncomfortable topic. But the God of the Bible has clearly chosen a people for a purpose. We cringe at this idea of supremacy perhaps only because we still believe the “equality” doctrine of our times. If anyone rails against “White supremacy” just ask them what the Bible says.

What the Bible Says about White Supremacy – Part 1

Included in the list of pejorative, race-obsessed, buzz words intended to express a belittling connotation of criticism and disrespect is “White supremacy.” If you want to make White people cringe and cower, just let loose the racially-charged epithet accusing them of White supremacy to bring them to heel.

Immediately “White supremacy” conjures up a worldview belief and conviction that White people are superior above all other races and should dominate over them. In the prevailing atmosphere of racial and cultural equality, this idea is abhorrent and is to be rejected and condemned in no uncertain terms. This ranks right up there with armed robbery and murder.

Understanding White Supremacy

But who stops and asks, “What does ‘White supremacy’ mean?” How is it to be defined? You see, that’s the first problem. How can anybody intelligently think about, be discerning about, or have a reasonable conversation about “White supremacy” unless it is defined and there is agreement on an exact definition? So, for the sake of argument, let’s go with the above-mentioned notion that “White supremacy” means that one believes that the White race is superior over other races and should dominate or have control over them.

The second problem that must be solved is this: White supremacy in respect to what? Painting an undefined, broad-brush conclusion on White supremacy will be inaccurate and distorted. For example, if you look at what race is represented on the college or pro football or basketball arenas, it is pretty evident that Blacks dominate over Whites. They not only are over-represented in numbers, but even more so since Blacks comprise only about 13% of the total American population compared to 61.3% of Whites. In the area of these sports Blacks dominate over Whites. Is that because Blacks are superior in these sports? Looks like it to me. Black supremacy. So what? Who cares just so long as your team wins – right? In truth, Blacks and other non-White people are exempt from any supremacy talk.

White Supremacy and Civilization

Let’s look at another example. How about the area of civilization and culture? Few ask about whether White people historically are more civilized and advanced than, let’s say, Black African countries. It’s quite the rage in today’s elite equality culture to discredit and reject Western European civilization. And there are numerous debates on what constitutes civilization and culture. But let’s get real. If all civilizations and cultures were equally the same, then why do White people seek out other areas where White people live? Why, since the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and the Immigration Act of 1965, have White people fled racially-mixed areas to seek out their own communities and now even larger regions of the country? Are White people just evil, good-for-nothing racists? Do they think they are just too superior compared to other races?

Why is it that virtually no one goes on vacation to Somalia, but will definitely go to Germany, Ireland, Sweden or Austria, for example.   If the other races with their cultures are so wonderful, why is it that they are all moving to White countries instead of staying home? And why aren’t the Whites illegally or legally immigrating to India, Somalia, Haiti or the Arabian countries? Why are Whites fleeing South Africa since Black rule took over? By the way, have you ever heard of any White “no-go zones”?  No. They are all of other races – mostly Black.

White Supremacy – Ideology and Reality

The truth of the matter is that White civilizations and culture are historically preferable and superior. In what respect?  Law and order, arts, health, sanitation, education, inventions, government, agriculture, transportation, music and so forth. The equality and diversity crowd would howl at this, but who among them is going to prove their ideology and move to a neighborhood that is, let’s say, at least 30% non-White? Few would put their money where their mouth is and send their children to a racially-mixed school.  No, they will seek out White people like themselves, yet they hypocritically deny the real reason. You know I’m right.

The truth is that non-White civilization and culture is simply not compatible for White people. Call it what you want, but that’s reality.

So please, to those who use “White supremacy” in a mindless attempt to demonize White people for their own self-preserving agenda, get off your “White supremacy” high horse and let’s just be honest. And, by the way, I don’t know of any individual White person who wants to dominate the other races. They just want to be left alone – by themselves without the threat of non-White invasion in the very few White homogeneous areas left.

Bottom line? The “White supremacy” line is just a tactical weapon to beat White people down. So, if you’re White, don’t fall for it.

Now, with that introduction on the subject, I will be posting Part 2 next week, discussing what the Bible says about the White race. See you then!

What the Bible Says about Love

The Bonner County Human Rights network helped spearhead the “Love Lives Here” campaign last fall. A rally in one of the downtown parks in Sandpoint sprouted a small crowd of people as they listened to a few pep talks and at least one story of a homosexual. Signs began to manifest in a few front lawns and downtown businesses – “Love Lives Here.” Many businesses around town  posted the “7B Supports Human Rights” sign in their windows or check-out counters. (7B is the designation for Bonner County, Idaho). What is love?

Love in Modern Culture

What do those who promote and agree with the “Love Lives Here” campaign believe about “love”? How would it be defined? If we are going to have an intelligent conversation about “love,” we better come to an understanding about what it means. Basically the human rights people promote “love” as equality, diversity, tolerance and acceptance of everything leading to mutual understanding and integration of races, religions, cultures, not to mention “sexual orientation.” This is “love.” The only thing that is not tolerated is anyone who disagrees with any of their points listed above.

They don’t tolerate any intolerance. Diversity and acceptance only goes so far. They define the parameter. Love is this and not this. Thus said the “7B Supports Human Rights” folks.

Love in the Bible

Okay, so is this love? Let’s compare it to what the Bible says about love.

Jesus Christ reconfirmed what was said in the Old Testament about love. All the commandments that God gave Israel were summed up in two commandments:

“And He said to him, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.” – Matthew 22:37-40

“God is love,” (I John 4:16) and those who please Him love Him. That love was verified by Jesus when He stated:

“If you love Me, you will keep my commandments.” – John 14:15

Keeping His moral and ethical laws is the evidence of loving God. Keeping God’s commandments defines what it means to love our neighbor. Love is obeying God’s laws. That is the biblical definition of love. If we don’t obey God, we don’t love God. If we don’t treat our neighbor (a fellow Israelite) in accordance with God’s laws, we don’t love our neighbor.

So, what if homosexuality is promoted and sanctioned by society as good or at least acceptable? How about transgenderism? When God clearly prohibits homosexuality as an abomination, how can engaging in such behavior and promoting it in the name of “love” and “equality” be love?

If God’s law in this regard is violated, how can practicing this behavior or accepting this behavior be love? Keeping God’s commandments is love. Violation of His commandments is not love.

That’s the biblical definition of love. Apparently, it’s not the meaning of love by those who in defiance of God’s laws, support and promote homosexual lifestyles and other sexually perverted activities. And that’s only one aspect of God’s law.

Love Contrasted

So, when you see “Love Lives Here,” it’s “love” as defined by arbitrary humanistic values. It’s defined by people who hate the God of the Bible and His laws. Whatever “feels good” and seems to be “fair” is “love.” And if you don’t agree with that, you’re a person who “hates.”

Well – maybe “hate” is not all bad. We are supposed to hate evil. We are supposed to hate what God hates. To refresh your memory about what the Bible says about hate click here.

I must ask, “Where does ‘Love Lives Here’ draw the line?” Homosexuality, transgenderism – what’s next? Is sex with children okay?  How about prostitution and sex trafficking? As time goes by, more and more perversion is accepted and promoted.  It’s bad news!

But all this aside, unless we can arrive on a clear, mutual definition of “love,” there will be no understanding or agreement.

What the Bible Says about Hate – Part 2

I was talking with a well-known and long-time journalist not long ago who had covered Richard Butler and also other “hate” groups and people in northern Idaho. Butler headed the Aryan Nations group at one time. The journalist told me that north Idaho was “ground zero” for “hate” group activity and, of course, raised a heightened sensitivity to “White supremacy” among some Idahoans. “Hate” was, and is, a hot topic.

My Personal “Hate” Labels

Since I am all over the internet by virtue of my websites and books, I attracted the attention of some of the locals. I did not make it a point to invite attention to myself, I can assure you. I prefer to go about my business and be left alone, but a few liberal radicals here have made it their business to try to “expose” me with the White supremacy” and “hate” labels. They have caused serious defamation of character to me and spread false judgment publicly. They made it clear I was not welcome and intended to run me out of town. Not one of these self-righteous yahoos ever once contacted me or met me. It’s the “name and shame” tactic coupled with the “hit and run” cover. They have zero integrity. Cowards!

Well, I’m still here and am not going anywhere. They would freely tag me with the “hate” word, but I wonder if they realize how much they hate me. But be that as it is, let’s let the Bible discuss “hate.” Yes, hate is in the Bible. It may be a revelation for some to learn that while God is love, He also hates.

How the Bible Uses “Hate”

The Hebrew word translated “hate” is sane (pronounced saw-nay). It means “to hate, personally…to hate … to be an enemy… adversary, foe, shunned, to detest.” The equivalent Greek word is miseo and means “to detest.” Biblical “hate” is very strong and intense. Here are some representative ways “hate” is used in the Bible:

Do not hate the brethren (in the context of fellow Israelites)

“You shall not hate your fellow countryman in your heart; you may surely reprove your neighbor, but shall not incur sin because of him.” – Leviticus 19:17

“The one who says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now.” – I John 2:9

“Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.” – I John 3:15

Hating evil, injustice, falsehood

“I hate the assembly of evildoers, and I will not sit with the wicked.” – Psalm 26:5

“You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of joy above Your fellows.” – Psalm 45:7

“Hate evil, you who love the LORD, who preserves the souls of His godly ones; He delivers them from the hand of the wicked.” – Psalm 97:10

“For they speak against You wickedly, And Your enemies take Your name in vain. Do I not hate those who hate You, O LORD? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?” – Psalm 139:21-22

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverted mouth, I hate.” – Proverbs 8:13

What God hates

“You shall not behave thus toward the LORD your God, for every abominable act which the LORD hates they have done for their gods; for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.” – Deuteronomy 12:31

“The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes; You hate all who do iniquity.” – Psalm 5:5

“The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, and the one who loves violence His soul hates.” – Psalm 11:5

“There are six things which the LORD hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil, a false witness who utters lies and one who spreads strife among brothers.” – Proverbs 16:16-19

“For I, the LORD, love justice, I hate robbery in the burnt offering; and I will faithfully give them their recompense and make an everlasting covenant with them.” – Isaiah 61:8

“Also let none of you devise evil in your heart against another, and do not love perjury; for all these are what I hate,” declares the LORD. – Zechariah 8:17

Who God hates

“…but I have hated Esau, and I have made his mountains a desolation and appointed his inheritance for the jackals of the wilderness.” – Malachi 1:3

God hates and commands His holy covenant people to hate – hate those who hate God and His Law, and all who practice unrighteousness.

Uncomfortable, yes? We’re simply not used to it. Why? We live in a tolerance and inclusion culture. Don’t criticize anyone. Let’s just love everybody. It feels good. It’s comfortable … and “hate” is very uncomfortable.

Biblical Hate Today

Biblical hate is correctly directed toward detesting lawlessness and those who oppose God’s laws and the chaos, disorder, violence, destructiveness and death that brings.

Biblical hate separates between right and wrong and good and bad, bringing into sharp focus discernment and conviction. Righteous hate preserves the good and shuns evil as revealed in the Bible.

Now, let’s bring biblical hate home.

  • Those who promote and unrepentingly participate in sexual perversion (homosexual behavior, pedophilia, sex slave trade, transgender, et al) – hate God and God hates them.
  • Those prosecutors who deceptively withhold vital information to convict the innocent – hate God and God hates them.
  • Those judges who take bribes or show partiality to condemn the innocent – hate God and God hates them.
  • Those who deliberately lie for unjust gain – hate God and God hates them.
  • Those who advocate equality, diversity and multiculturalism – hate God and God hates them.
  • Those who knowingly and falsely defame another in order to cause harm to another’s name and reputation – hate God and God hates them.
  • Those who seek to overthrow national sovereignty, its people and its laws for the advancement of global government – hate God and God hates them.
  • Those who hold public office and have taken a sacred oath to uphold the law of the land and refuse to expose and try to correct violations of God’s Laws – hate God and God hates them.

You might be able to add a few more to this list.

But the bottom line is, Jesus said if you love your life you will lose it. If you hate your life in this world, you will keep it to eternal life (John 12:25).

No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. – Luke 16:13

Who do you serve?

What the Bible Says about Hate – Part 1

“Hate” is a popular and often-used word by those who advocate and promote multicultural diversity and racial inclusion at every level. Those who disagree with those ideals are the targets of the label “hate.” And people who “hate” are to be denounced, disenfranchised and discriminated against as despicable and disgusting.

Hate in North Idaho

Throughout America and other historic White countries, the “human rights” organizations, like the Bonner County Human Rights Network and Task Force, are well-known for liberally hurling the “hate” word around. Perhaps you have noticed, like I have in various businesses particularly in Sandpoint, Idaho, the openly displayed placards with the cute saying: “Too great for hate.” That word “hate” is meant, of course, for White folks who resist the diversity and inclusion program.

Hate Not Defined

As often the case, however, the word “hate” is not defined, but is used as a word of impression directed at White people.

To be labeled as a person who hates labels you as one who hates other non-White races or other cultures. The word “hate” leaves such a powerful, repelling impression used for the purpose of attacking those with contrary views of diversity and tolerance in order to cause them to retreat, whimper away and cower in a corner. And what is the most common response of someone who has just been blasted with this “name and shame” tactic? Whatever self-justification that one can offer to escape the dreaded tag of “hate.” But again, it’s just a word of impression to cause White people to back off and go silent.

Defining Hate

So, in the interest of achieving understanding through intelligent reasoning, let’s define “hate.” First, from Merriam-Webster.com:  “Intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger or sense of injury; extreme dislike or disgust.”

This is a pretty broad definition that could be applied in a wide variety of situations. Could “hate” be applied to the pro-diversity and tolerance people regarding their response toward those who disagree with them? Could they feel intense hostility or aversion from anger toward those who want to protect their neighborhoods and communities from foreign immigrant refugees and gangs, for example? Could they, therefore, hate those who resist their integration movement? I think “hate” could be applied to them as well. What’s good for the goose … Let’s be reasonable, no one is immune to “hate” no matter how lovingly inclusive and fair they may pretend to be. To not admit this is hypocritical. So, get off your self-righteous “high horse” you Marxist “Human Rights” types. Stop using the weapon of the “hate” word because others disagree with you and your liberal ideas.

In Part 2 I will review what the Bible says about “hate.” How it is defined and used in Scripture will help us discover the proper and improper ways “hate” is to be understood and applied.

What the Bible Says about Anti-Semitism

A commonly used tactical weapon employed by today’s Jews and ignorant professing Christians, as well as others, is the label of “anti-Semitism.” With the manufactured cultural backdrop of the “Holocaust,”1 anti-Semitic is assumed to mean anti-Jew. Should you criticize, expose or simply discuss Jews in the slightest negative tone, despite the truth, you are labeled an anti-Semite or anti-Jew.

Modern Definition of Anti-Semitism

Once again, there seems to be a misunderstanding of the term and thus confusion about what anti-Semitism means. Before can have an intelligent discussion about anti-Semitism, we must come to agreement on how it is defined.

For example, a modern definition from an online dictionary says this under “anti-Semitic”:

“Feeling or showing hostility toward or discrimination against Jews as a cultural, racial or ethnic group…” – www.merriam-webster.com/

“Having or showing a strong dislike of Jewish people, or treating them in a cruel or unfair way…” – www.dictionary.cambridge.org

It seems to be the consensus today: anti-Semitic means anti-Jew.

The main reason for this present-day definition is because of the assumption that the Jews are believed to be the Israelites, the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This belief is held by Catholics, Protestants and other wild religious offshoots. Is that the truth? Are Jews the biblical Israelites? Maybe I would be called an anti-Semite for even questioning that.

Correcting the Definition of Anti-Semitism

Before we explore that question, let’s look at another definition that will take us back to another meaning of anti-Semitism.

Here is what the American Dictionary of the English Language 1828 (Noah Webster) says under “Shemitic”:

“Pertaining to Shem, the son of Noah. The Shemitic languages are Chaldee, Syriac, Arabic, Hebrew, Samaritan, Ethiopic and Old Phoenician.”

So, Shemitic (or Semitic) refer to the descendants of Shem, one of the sons of Noah (Genesis 10:1).  “Anti-Semitic” is not found in this 1828 dictionary, but if it were, it would mean against (anti) Shem or the descendants of Shem. Thus, I must conclude that sometime after 1828 this term “anti-Semite” or “anti-Semitism” was invented and has come to mean anti-Jew. But originally, it referred to Shem.

Are the Jews Semites?

So now the question is, Are todays Jews Semites? Are the Jews descendants of Shem? More specifically, are today’s Jews the physical offspring of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the 12 tribes of Israel (Exodus 1:1-5) who were direct descendants of Shem (Genesis 11:10-27ff)?

I discuss the history of the modern-day Jews in my book, Identifying Biblical Israel Today.  I detail exactly where they came from and who they are. But one fact stands out. The Jews of today are NOT descended from Shem, but from Ashkenaz, one of the grandsons of Japheth (Genesis 10:2-3).  There are many modern Jewish references that confirm this. Here is one:

The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia provides population statistics for the Ashkenazim:  “[the Ashkenazim] constituted before 1933 some nine-tenths of the Jewish people (about 15,000,000 out of 16,500,000).”

The Jews are not Shemites (Semites), but are from another line. So, it is incorrect to label someone as “anti-Semitic” if they criticize the Jews. Discard the modern-day meaning of “anti-Semitic” as anti-Jew. It’s not accurate.

Let’s Suppose …

On the other hand if the descendants of the biblical Israelites are the people from white Northwestern European stock, then the label “anti-Semitism” would fit if you hated and denounced these people.  So, in fact, the true anti-Semites today are the Jews, for they have created the greatest identity theft of all time – they have stolen the identity of the biblical Israelites. And then these Jews cry “anti-Semitism” if anyone tries to expose them and their deeds and schemes.

Even now it is a criminal offense in many European countries to criticize the Jews or question the Holocaust. In the United States, it’s not come to the level of an enforceable unlawful act, but it’s right around the corner.

For example, in December 2016, the U.S. Senate passed the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act by unanimous consent. As recently as November 7, 2017:

“…the House Judiciary Committee held hearings over the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act, a bill that would broaden the definition of antisemitism to include criticism of Israel [that is, Jews]. If passed, the legislation would instruct the Department of Education to consider the State Department’s definition of antisemitism when investigating educational institutions for discrimination under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act.”2

Inching toward a criminal offense. So much for free speech!

“Jews” of the Bible

The question often arises, who then are the “Jews” of the Bible? You see, the term translated “Jew” in the Bible leads to confusion. But if you want clarity on that subject, you might consider my books, the Covenant Heritage Series, beginning with the first book, Discover the Story of Your Biblical Heritage.  I go into the biblical history and definitions in detail in this series.

For me, the epitaph “anti-Semitic” as applying to Jews is just another deception invented to protect the Jews and hinder revealing who they really are. It’s to disguise what they are doing to destroy the true biblical Israelites.

And if professing Christians who have just read this still believe the Jews are Semites, and thus are Israelites, you have been misled. But, good news! You now have the opportunity to discover for yourself the historical and biblical facts. Click here for the Covenant Heritage Series.

What the Bible Says about Racism

Since there is no word in the Bible such as “racism” or “racist,” is there another word or concept that would be representative? To find out the answer, we have to determine what “racism” means. So, let’s do a little history lesson on this word.

History of “Racism”

In respect to the English language, “racism” or “racist” is a relatively new word. It did not exist until the 1930s. Interestingly, the Oxford English Dictionary did not even have an entry for the word until after 1971. The Second Edition, 1989, defined “racism” as “the theory that distinctive human characteristics and abilities are determined by race.” Pretty benign compared to how it is used today.

Let’s look at other definitions as an example of how the meaning of racism changed over time.

“A belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce inherent superiority of a particular race.” (Webster’s Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary, 1967)

This is a general definition, but unclear, as to the reasons why “race is the primary determinant of human traits . . .” Notice just twenty-one years later how the definition changed:

“1. A doctrine or teaching, without scientific support, that claims to find racial differences in character, intelligence, etc., that asserts the superiority of one race over another or others, and that seeks to maintain the supposed purity of a race or the races; 2. Any program or practice of racial discrimination, segregation, etc. based on such beliefs.” (Webster’s New World Dictionary, 1988, emphasis added)

This definition of “racism” has changed from the earlier one by adding a qualifier of “without scientific support.” In other words, if there is no scientific support for claims of “racial differences” or the assertion of “superiority of one race over another,” or if one holds to the “practice of racial discrimination,” and so forth, then one is engaged in racism and is a racist. But what if there is scientific support for racial differences? Would one be a “racist”? No, not according to this definition. In this case, one could assert the superiority of one race over another and practice racial discrimination and not be called a “racist” as long as he could show scientific support for conclusions about racial differences.

Yet another definition adds to the notion of “racism” by including “a policy of government” and the vagueness of “hatred or intolerance”:

“1. A belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior. 2. A policy, a system of government, etc. based on such doctrine. 3. Hatred or intolerance of another race or other races. (Webster’s College Dictionary, 1991)”

This definition has dropped the qualifier of “scientific support” from the previous one and added some broader based, but subjective, qualifiers. What is “hatred” or “intolerance”? These have become arbitrary words of impression rather than definition.

What if one believed there were “inherent differences” between the races and, therefore, practiced racial discrimination and segregation for the benefit of his own race, but did not hate other races? Would he be a racist? No, not in the full sense of this definition. But then again,k what does “hate” mean?

Even this cursory review of dictionary definitions reveals a lack of consistency or exactness of definition of the word “racism.” And without a more exact definition, the terms of “racism” or “racist” may not properly identify or categorize an individual who may be a racial separatist or segregationist for very good religious or scientific reasons.

Religion on “Racism”

Today, “racism” and “racist” are used and perceived as downright evil. For example, Southern Baptist Convention President Ronnie Floyd said,

“I believe that the issue of racism is from Satan and the demonic forces of hell.  Racism is completely opposite from the message of Jesus Christ; it is completely opposite of the message of love, it is completely opposite of the message of dignity, value and the sanctity of human life. It is completely opposite of the message of reconciliation.” – Nov. 5, 2015

Pretty strong words here. But it may represent the sentiments of Catholic and Protestant religions today.

Many pastors and scholars who believe that the Bible is the written word of God stand in defiance of “racism” because of one primary presumption: that all races originated from Adam. They have concluded that the Bible is a universally-applied book. It’s about all races, they say. So, it only stands to reason that racism is to be hated and opposed – whatever “racism” means.

Theology Rules

But is it true that the Bible is about, and for, all races?

I used to believe that, but I asked the hard questions and then tried to be as objective as possible when I searched for the answers in the Bible. My conclusion: there is no evidence that all races came from Adam nor is the Bible – the key people, historical events or covenants – inclusive of all races. No evidence. None.

That being said, I would also conclude that unless there is a definite and agreed upon meaning of “racism” or “racist” (since there are obviously many different ideas about it), we cannot determine if the Bible discusses the issue.

If, on the other hand, I am assigned the racism or racist label because I believe that the Bible is about one race of people among many, and that the Bible is not inclusive of all races, then call me what you will. But remember what Jesus said:

“You have heard that the ancients were told, ‘You shall not commit murder’ and ‘Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘You good-for-nothing,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.” – Matthew 5:21-22

You good-for-nothing, you fool – you racist! Be careful.

Let’s be honest. “Racism” and “racist” are created words used against the White people to shame and blame them. They are used by unthinking people who basically don’t know what they so confidently accuse another of.

Just stick with what the Bible says and means.

In the meantime, may I suggest another, more accurate definition of “racist”:

“One who realizes that there are inherent differences between the races and makes choices about his life based on those differences.”

What the Bible Says about Race

It is widely assumed that all the different races and racial sub-types are not really individual races at all, but are all included in one race – the human race.

Race in Secular Thought

For example, modern-day anthropology, promoted by the Boaz school of thought, teaches there is no such thing as race, as once believed by traditional anthropology. Race is merely a social construct created by society. Nearly all (if not all) colleges and universities follow and teach the Boaz conviction. The conclusion is that all races are pretty much the same except for different physical features. This belief forms the basis for racial equality.

Race in Religious Thought

Although we may consider the modern anthropology view of race as secular, the “Christian” religious world (both Catholic and Protestant) have come to the same conclusion as the Boaz school of thought but by a different set of assumptions. Those who believe the Bible is the written word of God also believe that the following two assumptions are fact:

  1. All races and racial sub-types originated from Adam and Eve, and
  2. All races and racial sub-types were therefore created in the image and likeness of God.

So, the modern Christian world believes that all races are equal because it is assumed that they had the same created origin. They agree with the modern secular world and arrive at similar conclusions based on a different set of assumptions.

The religious and secular systems agree there are no individual races of different origins, but all comprise only “one human race” or humanity. Even non-Christian Hinduism is in agreement with the “all are equal” doctrine. Could it be that eastern religious doctrine has infiltrated both religious and secular with regard to equality?

Race Origin Assumptions Challenged

But I ask the question, “What does the Bible say about race?” The Catholic and Protestant religions have made certain assumptions (described above) that are considered as fact. However, the Bible never said that God created all races from one male and female pair (Adam and Eve). There is nothing in the creation account recorded in Genesis chapters 1 and 2 that directly or indirectly says this. It’s an unproven assumption.

Nor does the Bible say that all the races and racial sub-types came into being from Noah’s three sons and their families (Genesis 10-11). There are elaborate scenarios of how they say the races came about such as through the process of different environmental factors affecting genetic outcomes or an unrecorded miracle. But the Bible doesn’t even hint at this.  Nothing.

So, why does the religious world keep promoting something that the Bible never says? Because they must find a way to make the Bible fit into their universal, “we are all one human race” conclusion in order to justify “world missions.” Because they need to justify their application of “the gospel” to all races in order to be fair.

What the Bible Says

What the Bible does say is this:

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” – Genesis 1:26-27

God created one male and female pair, Adam and Eve (Genesis 2). And from that pair children were born and their successive generations of offspring reproduced (Genesis 5). That’s what the Bible says and nothing more.

The direct physical offspring from Adam and Eve were eventually Noah and his three sons. From their families, their descendants were “scattered” after the flood (Genesis 11). The biblical text says nothing about these families becoming other races. It’s an assumption based simply on the presumption that the Bible is a universal book and that all races are equal.

Why don’t we just take what the Bible says at face value instead of imagining what we want it to say, trying to force it to fit into our worldview of “all races came from Adam”?

Why not consider another possibility? Could it be that God created one race of people, distinct from the other races and racial sub-types, for a specific purpose and plan? Could the Bible be about that one race and not the many races? Would that be a more logical conclusion based on the biblical evidence? And would this proposal be consistent with the facts of genetic science – like produces like?

It’s really very simple. Pure breeding Caucasians produce Caucasians. Pure breeding Blacks produce Blacks. And so on. A cell only reproduces itself exactly, time after time, every time. Like begets like. That’s it.

The Bible is about one race among many in existence today. However distasteful that truth may be to some, it’s still what the Bible says about race.

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.
