The site linked below is definitely worthy of bookmarking, and this article is remarkable.
It calls for a comprehensive political theology in keeping with the doctrine of sphere sovereignty, for which the writers of Faith & Heritage have long argued. In our time, this old Protestant doctrine has been replaced by what they call “moral witness,” which is essentially about staying far away from politics for anything that would help white people, and instead participating in “social justice” initiatives on behalf of non-whites. This is why men like Russell Moore would never take sides on anything considered “Republican” but will fawn all over MLK and gloat about his political accomplishments as gospel issues.
We’ve seen for a long time how Alienists have changed passages like 1 Peter 2 into a “new race” that replaces the old, meaning the church supplants all other earthly allegiances. (They still think family is important, but not for having anything to do with blood.)
This feeds into a defeatist mentality, such that Trump is “on the wrong side of Jesus,” but MLK wasn’t. It’s also closely tied to the lowest common denominator approach to evangelical political involvement. Thus, Christians (at least the white ones) could rally for decades around being pro-life but not against feminism or Jews or Muslims.
Christians are now so indoctrinated on what to think that pastors and teachers can now simply use buzzwords for public policy goals, and the sheep bleat their acceptance. We should be defending our people and nation, with the understanding that this is complementary to our faith rather than opposed to it. But as soon as Christians rally to the cause of survival, along comes someone like Moore to tell them that their citizenship is in heaven, and the kingdom of Christ is not of this world, and nativism doesn’t show love to our neighbors. Then he marches across the bridge at Selma with the poverty pimps.
The point is made in the article that whenever something is called a “gospel issue,” whenever a noun is “gospelized,” it means that it has nothing to do with nationalism or even hierarchicalism. This allows impastors to steer a Christian’s identity to the left by removing buffers that render the individual vulnerable. In the same way, Marxism removed intermediate allegiances that turned the individual into naked prey. For instance, they’ll say that a Christian should focus on witnessing, not restricting immigration, regardless of the Swedish chaos that descends upon their homes and families. It’s a way to bully into silence and passivity someone who wants a consistent evangelical political theology, who wants to know if the Bible allows him to save his own people from perishing at the hands of Soros. But then why speak up and have all his friends talk about how he’s on the wrong side of Jesus?
Of course, this effectively converts the church into a political society, where the rule of law is replaced by internal control and shunning, rather than what our ancestors recognized: church and state operating in separate but harmonious spheres.
This ecclesiology and the political theology that flows from it allow evangelical leaders to place wedges between earthly identities. It collapses the sacred/secular and spiritual/temporal distinctions that are so crucial to harmonize the particular roles of church and state in classical Protestantism. Ultimately, blurring these distinctions and others, evangelical leaders gain significant leeway to engineer and equip their followers with a particular vision of witness.
Under the old system of sphere sovereignty, Christians were able to influence the state and wield political power. The new leftist “ecclesiastical supremacism” doesn’t even try to usurp the state. It simply follows where the state leads, because the Christians who should be leading the state and correcting the course of the church have been neutered. They’ve essentially surrendered authority to their traitor-leaders, who really do have power because of the respect they’re given in the enemedia for their ability to control the sleeping giant.
