“Trump today disbanded two of his business counsels in the wake of a mass exodus of various CEOs, who rightly want nothing to do with him (finally), after he made it clear yesterday that he’s a Nazi sympathizer.
Worthy of note is that not one person from Trump’s evangelical counsel has resigned for the same reason.”
What the Bible REALLY says about white supremacists:
1 John 4:16, 18, 20~21
16 (b) God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 18 (a) There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. 20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.
Matthew 7:15~23 (Jesus speaking)
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits [actions]. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? 17 So every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, and neither can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. 21 Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven; only the ones who do the will of my Father who is in heaven [i.e. love their brother]. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and cast out demons in your name and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
Newsflash: White Supremacy and Christianity Are Incompatible.
White supremacists often claim to be Christians and try to use the Bible not only to excuse their racism, but to give merit to it. To make their racism morally right. I’m fed up with it. You literally cannot be a white supremacist and a Christian at the same time. People who claim to be need to do some soul-searching and actually crack open their Bibles to see what they have to say on the matter. Once they do, they’ll find the two ideologies clash entirely – they’ll either have to choose one or continue lying to themselves and the world.
So, I’m going to give just a few examples as to why the Bible doesn’t support any sort of racial supremacy, let alone white supremacy.
First off, oftentimes I hear verses in the Old Testament, like Nehemiah 13:23-27 as a baseline for their claims. I won’t quote the whole thing here, you can look it up yourselves, but verses 26-27 give you a taste:
“…Nevertheless, foreign women made even him [Solomon] to sin. Shall we then listen to you and do all this great evil and act treacherously against our God by marrying foreign women?”
Sounds kind of bad, right? Once you actually put the verses into context, the issue with such marriages was that the Jewish people – and Solomon in his specific case – married pagan women. It wasn’t because they were of a different race; it was because they belonged to a different religion, thus tempting the Jewish people (and Solomon) to fall to idolatry. That was the problem. If you look in the Old Testament, it sets up rules for allowing people of other races/ethnicities convert to Judaism. There’s no issue with race itself – only religion.
In fact, in Numbers 12, Miriam criticizes Moses for marrying a Cushite woman (she was black, from modern-day Ethiopia, if memory serves). Numbers 12:1 literally says, “Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married.” And do you know what God did? He gave Miriam leprosy and had her kicked out of the camp for a week. That sends a pretty strong message.
Another Biblical example of interracial marriage involves Ruth. She was a Moabite, a people group which does have ties to the Israelites but which broke off a very long time before Ruth and were polytheistic. However, she served God and is lifted up as an example of a faithful, godly woman. No one brings up any sort of issue with Ruth marrying Boaz despite her heritage – because she served God.
The law prohibited marriage with someone of a different religion because it may cause people to fall into idolatry, and therefore to sin. There was absolutely no issue with interracial marriage in and of itself and there are plenty of examples where interracial marriage is seen as 100% okay.
Secondly, white people are gentiles. I repeat: White people are gentiles. Judaism was not our original religion. We had to be specifically included in the message of salvation. Even during Jesus’ lifetime, the message of salvation was mostly for Jews. It was only after His death on the cross that the veil was torn and the disciples were told to get rid of their own prejudices and preach to gentiles. By this time, as it is mentioned in Acts 10:28, it was unlawful for Jews to associate or eat with gentiles (”anyone of another nation”) – you’ve got to love the laws the Pharisees put in place! (And, may I add, laws like that that the Pharisees put in place were part of the problem and Jesus made a point to make sure people knew that.)
But in Acts 10, Peter has a vision in which God tells him not to make unclean what He has made clean. Directly after this, Peter is called to a centurion’s house to preach to a bunch of gentiles. In Acts 10:34-35, Peter comes to the realization that salvation through Jesus Christ is not just for Jews. He says, “…Truly I understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to Him.”
He proceeds to start preaching to the gentiles, who accept salvation, and Peter gets flack for this. I just think this is so important, so I’m quoting two chunks of the exchange found in Acts 11:2-4, and verses 15-18:
“So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcision party criticized him, saying, ‘You went to uncircumcised men and ate with them.’ But Peter began and explained to them in order…‘As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them just as on us at the beginning. And I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ If then God gave the same gift to them as He gave to us when we believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I should stand in God’s way?’ When they heard these things they fell silent. And then they glorified God, saying, ‘Then to the Gentiles also God has granted repentance that leads to life.’”
Peter left behind his prejudices and began preaching to gentiles. He realized that he didn’t have the right to withhold salvation from people God intended to bless with it. Once the circumcision party hears this, they pause and then immediately start praising God. Salvation is for more than one race of people. It’s for more than just Jews, and certainly more than just white people. If God had never allowed other races to convert and be saved (in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament), white people would be left out. But luckily for us, everyone is invited to the party, no matter your race or background.
This is a sentiment that is repeated throughout the New Testament. Galatians 3:28 says,
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.”
Let me spell it out for you: Everyone is equal in Christ. Racism, sexism, etc. are not compatible with the Gospel and its message. I have no idea why so many people are obsessed with trying to use the Bible to lend merit to their racism, their sexism, their homophobia – any of their prejudices. None of that is Biblical. It’s not the point.
As for y’all white supremacists, white people were grafted into the family of Abraham through Jesus Christ, anyway. No race is superior to any other. The Bible literally spells that out for you, multiple times. We were all created in God’s image, and we all have an equal invitation to salvation.
Besides, our Savior, Jesus Christ, is Jewish. In case you forgot. He’s not white. So if you are a white supremacist, you’re not just claiming that you’re superior to all the other races (which in and of itself is unbiblical, morally wrong, and just outrageous), but you’re claiming that you’re inherently superior to Jesus Christ. Who you claim to worship.
I pulled all of this off the top of my head, and I’m not even a Bible scholar. There’s plenty more evidence as to why white supremacy and Christianity cannot coexist – all you have to do is open up your Bible and look for it.
So stop kidding yourselves. You are either a white supremacist or a Christian. Not both. Sit down and figure out which one you’d rather be.
“I don’t see color” is saying “I judge everybody by my lens and white culture, I judge everybody based on how they conform to white ideals”. That’s pretty…. racist. You should see color, you should see that people come from different backgrounds and have lived in a world that treats them differently. You should understand that your culture isn’t more important than other people’s culture. And you definitely shouldn’t ever judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree. All people deserve the same respect for their heritage and background.
Tomi Lahren, you are truly one of a kind, and not in a particularly favorable light. You have compared the BLM movement to the KKK yet your Preacher Man rhetoric is very much of a Neo-Nazi Bible Thumper. Question: Do you see genocide, mass murder, a diaspora, a permanent displacement of home and country, an ethnic cleanse, political asylum, an aberration of freedoms to choose our religion, speech, pathology, and the way we think and the way we feel? If so, do tell because what I see is a narrow-minded privilege to the Aryan culture you were born with and a flagrant disregard to the other sides of life where hair extensions, fake lashes, and lip dermal collagen is not an everyday trip to the Cut-Copy-and-Paste Dr. Plastic. People all around us in America have the freedom to protest because we were dubbed inferior to the likes of you. Worst, there are people in disparaging harrowing acts of magnanimous sorrow, where the worlds are crashing beneath their feet and they are being labeled as terrorists when all they want is a refuge to make another place called home. You’re just a teeny-bobber airhead who presides in her laps of luxury as a chosen one when in reality, people like me feel sorry for people like you. Because of the color of my skin, I am presumably subservient to your “entity.” And we laugh at you because you don’t have the brain to buy a clue that you’re a sheep, being used like a Hermes bag that is so last season. You got your degree from Tump University and you have done absolutely nothing in life except to pander to the psycho right wing crap to conservative baby boomers who haven’t had an erection since the Reagan Administration. Good job being a common-law Reaganomics whore.— Jennifer Brigitte
