Continuing with Al Mohler’s denunciation of pro-white Christians as heretics, let’s look at our allegedly heretical view of humanity in terms of a Bible verse Mohler cited in his “Letter from Berlin”: Ephesians 2:14.
“For He Himself is our peace.” This is the promise and the declaration St. Paul made in Ephesians 2:14, amidst a treatise on how God has reconciled man to God and man to man through the Cross of Christ. Al Mohler and other anti-white cuckservatives have taken this idea and applied it outside of its proper context in order to justify their anti-white, anti-American, anti-Western agenda. Their mischief does not undermine the original intent of this verse any more than the U.S. Supreme Court’s twisted interpretation of the U.S. Constitution undermines its original intent. However, like SCOTUS, Mohler and company’s mischief does do great harm.
The doctrine the apostle Paul was expounding here and elsewhere, such as in Galatians 3:28 and Colossians 3:11, was not meant to marginalize entire races of people for simply wanting to preserve their bloodlines, family names, genetic distinctions, borders, and marriage beds. The precious doctrines which St. Paul taught us in these passages were meant to bring souls to God in Christ, and to reconcile men to each other in Christ.
Let’s look at the passage in question: Ephesians 2:11-22.
11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
The apostle begins by directing the attention of his Gentile audience to the ungodly exclusion which the Jews had foisted upon the Church. True, God had set a distinction between Jew and Gentile, but in the hardness of their Pharisaical hearts organized Jewry had taken upon itself to arrogantly treat our Gentile forefathers (see Romans 2 for more on this). We see that in verse 12 Paul does not condemn the distinction itself, but merely lists it as a settled fact: “ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world.” This was no wicked inequality. This was God’s design, and the natural state of all born outside of the covenant. Our forefathers were dead in their sins, ergo “having no hope, and without God in the world.”
The good news, says Paul in verse 13, is that “in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.” Instead of being left to die eternally for lack of being born into the covenant people, and instead of God’s covenant being intentionally limited to Jews, God has extended His Kingdom to the Gentiles in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
In verses 14-17 the apostle expounds on this theme, explaining that it is in Christ that both Jew and Gentile are reconciled to God and to one another. In Christ God has “made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us,” which divided man from God due to man’s sinfulness, and which divided man from man. In Christ God has “abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances.” What enmity? The enmity of every sinful man’s heart against God, in seeing that he fell infinitely short of a just and holy God’s laws, and deserved nothing but damnation. The enmity of Jew versus Gentile and of Gentile versus Jew, in boasting of a special status, and envying that special status, while both alike sinned against the living God (as Paul explains at length in Romans 2).
Christ and His apostles brought the Good News to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile. As Paul explains in verse 17, God “came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.” Why would God do that? Because the original intent of the Gospel was never to limit it to Jews. It was never limited at all by race. From the creation of man in Genesis 1, to the first inklings of Messianic prophecy in Genesis 3:15, to the prophetic warnings sent not only to Israel and Judah but also to Moab, Assyria, and Egypt, the Word of God and the Kingdom of God was always inclusive of all mankind.
How so? Not, as Mohler argues, to require equal political rights for all, to enforce politically-correct speech codes, and to permit Muslims and mestizos into Europe and America as fake “refugees.” Rather, what the Holy Spirit teaches here through the apostle in verse 18 is that in Christ “we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.” The reconciliation that God has accomplished is a spiritual reconciliation, not a political, economic, cultural, or racial one. It is not to blend races into one brown-colored super-race or to abolish political boundaries or private property. What God has accomplished in the Cross is to make Gentiles and Jews alike “no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God.” Through faith in Christ, human beings of both genders, all ages, all classes, and all races become part of God’s household. Here the apostle paints a picture of a stone building in which each believer is a stone, “built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone.” The apostle emphasizes that it is Christ Himself who makes the parts of the whole building cooperate with one another, and it is Christ Himself who makes the Church not just another social organization or human club, but “an holy temple in the Lord.” This temple is one which the Holy Spirit inhabits (verse 22). We are part of something unique, living, and divine. The Apostle Peter also used this image to teach the same lesson in 1 Peter 2:5.
Therefore, we as race realists, anti-feminists, ethnonationalists, and the like open our arms and our hearts wide to all people who want to know the Lord Jesus Christ. We confess that the Church of Jesus Christ is for people of both genders, all ages, all classes, and all races. We confess that His Church is governed by His Word, and that every spiritual blessing we have in Christ is the inheritance of every believer, regardless of his or her social station and background. We believe in an eternity in which a tapestry of nations, tribes, and tongues will worship the same God forever.
Where, Dr. Mohler, is our heresy?
It is not that we exclude people from salvation. It is not that we restrict the sacraments or the preaching of God’s Word to certain ethnic groups. It is not that we restrict the Gospel to one race. Those were the Jews’ errors. We and our forefathers abhorred these errors. Along with our proud white forefathers who owned slaves, conquered continents, and limited citizenship to free white men, we support the evangelization and discipleship of all nations. We count sincere believers of every race and class among our spiritual brethren. Many of us have sacrificed time, money, labor, and even our lives to bring the Gospel to peoples whose present-day descendants are raping, murdering, robbing, and conquering us while you turn a blind eye.
The error is not ours, but Mohler’s. The Gospel truth is that which I have outlined above: that Christ welcomes Jew and Gentile, male and female, rich and poor alike into His Kingdom. The error is to take this spiritual truth, this law of Christ’s Church, and apply it to areas where it has no proper application, in the service of a monistic, Marxist agenda.
Mohler and company argue that since Christ has reconciled all men unto God and unto one another, therefore no divisions between them are morally permissible. What God has abolished, let no man preserve! There go our borders, our laws against intermarriage, our laws against interracial adoption, our customs of having separate social organizations and practices for the several races, and so on. The logic applies just as evenly to gender and sexuality as it does to race — and thereby the “Christian” feminist movement has eradicated many of the time-honored, biblical practices that preserved the natural, scriptural roles and rights of both men and women. “Christian” homosexuals, trannies, open-borders advocates, race-mixing promoters, and socialists are using the same logic and the same Bible verses to demand their political and ecclesiastical equality. The same level that was used here with respect to slavery and race will be used on everything and everyone that stands in the way of the globalist, anti-white establishment. That’s the verdict of 200 years of abolitionist-civil rights-gay rights-women’s liberation-#BlackLivesMatter-#
Mohler may as well apply the doctrine of justification to criminal law as he does the doctrine of Ephesians 2:14 to political race relations. I sincerely wish for the revered leader of the SBC and his allies to grasp this point and make a pivot. They, we, and all God’s children would stand to gain if they did so. In the future, I’ll explain further why his doctrine, foisted upon Ephesians 2:14, Galatians 3:28, and other Bible verses, is precisely the kind of insanity that makes him what Vladimir Lenin called “a useful idiot” for the Communists destroying our civilization, race, and nation.
