One of the most infuriating and persistent problems that typifies modern Christianity is the attitude of apathy. Most Christians are unaware of just how dire things have become in the world, and if they do know, most of them do not care. Whites have been lulled into slumber by the many circuses that consume their daily lives. Sports and entertainment have proven to be effective distractions from the real perils that we face as our civilization collapses around us. When whites do summon the motivation to make a difference, most of this energy is channeled into political activism, but even politics is little more than just another Western sport, the outcome of which changes almost nothing. Even disturbing trends that seem to assure perpetual liberal ascendancy don’t seem to disturb conservative whites who repeatedly console themselves that they will “get ‘em next time.”
That non-Christian whites would be apathetic to their own displacement is more understandable. After all, non-Christians lack a coherent worldview that places any objective meaning on national identity. What I don’t understand is how white Christians can be so indifferent to their own dispossession. In my experience, even when white Christians acknowledge that current trends are indeed undesirable or disturbing, they find excuses as to why we shouldn’t be too upset. In many cases adherence to dispensationalist theology is at the heart of their attitudes towards current events. There are two main problems with dispensationalism that have fostered the apathy typifying contemporary evangelicalism. The first is the church/Israel distinction, which understands ethnic Jews as God’s chosen people. The second is the eschatology of the imminent Rapture. Let’s examine each of these in turn.
Ethnic Jews as God’s Chosen People
A characteristic feature of dispensationalist theology is the radical distinction between Israel and the Church. Israel, identified with contemporary Jews, is regarded not merely as an ethnic group, but as God’s distinct earthly people who are the proper inheritors of particular land promises given in the Old Testament. Christian Zionism is tremendously influential in American politics, and has been popularized by men such as megachurch shyster John Hagee, who was influenced by fellow shyster C.I. Scofield. It is sadly ironic that many dispensationalists react with horror and disdain upon encountering Kinist ideas, but nevertheless believe that a particular ethnic group is intrinsically in covenant with God by no other reason than their descent from a particular national patriarch. This is something that no Kinist believes.
We reject false Christian Identity beliefs that would understand white nations in the same way that Christian Zionists esteem the Jews. It is also ironic that many of the verses that supposedly demonstrate that God doesn’t care about (European) racial or ethnic identity are actually aimed at refuting the idea that a particular (Jewish) ethnic group remains in God’s favor in spite of their disobedience (e.g. Gal. 3:26-29). Most white evangelicals are too obsessed about purported ubiquitous threats to Israel’s national security and pay no attention to the crumbling foundations of the West all around them.
The Imminent Rapture
For many, the belief in an imminent Rapture drives their disinterest in the long-term consequences of current trends. They firmly believe that Jesus will return very soon, and that His return will deliver all true Christians from any potential disaster on the horizon. These Christians don’t fear the prospect of whites being replaced in their historic homelands and what this might mean for their grandchildren because of their misguided belief that Jesus will evacuate them before real trouble starts. If anything, I’ve witnessed some Christians become almost gleeful at the prospect of impending disaster, since this is believed to be but another harbinger of Jesus’ imminent return. Most of these Christians believe that the world as it is presently constituted is simply a temporary stop on the way to Heaven that will ultimately to be destroyed by fire.1 This mindset causes Christians to ignore the present problems that are developing throughout the world because they believe that they will be evacuated before the real trouble begins.
What Must Be Done
Dispensationalism isn’t merely a fanciful eschatology that encourages endless speculation about the imminent return of Jesus, but a false theology that has severely affected the way that Christians think about all aspects of the faith. The dispensationalist belief in radical discontinuity between the “dispensations” has caused many Christians to reject many traditional Christian morals that are not directly reiterated by Christ and his disciples in the New Testament. This is a major reason so few Christians endorse ethnonationalism for any group but Israel. As a result of Zionist funding and propaganda, many Christians are ardent defenders of the secular state of Israel. I recommend reading John Gerstner’s, Wrongly Dividing the Word of Truth in order to become more conversant in rebutting the specific claims of dispensationalism.
Dispensationalism is a major hurdle that must be overcome for Kinists to make progress in spreading our message among Christians. It is often a topic that can generate more heat than light, but it’s worth bringing up in discussion with your Christian friends and relatives. Books such as Understanding Dispensationalists by Vern Poythress, The Apocalypse Code by Hank Hanegraff, and The Book of Revelation Made Easy by Ken Gentry are good introductions that can be suggested to dispensationalists to help them see the errors of dispensationalist theology in a way that is easily accessible. Deconstructing basic dispensationalist teachings can be an early red pill for conservative Protestants who can then learn about weightier topics on the path to greater awareness.
- Most would appeal to 2 Peter 3:7-12 as their prooftext. I believe that this refers to the burning and destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans c. AD 70. This is confirmed by Peter’s speaking of the “elements” being melted. Paul uses the same word (stoicheion, Strong’s G4747) to describe the weak elements of temple worship which were rendered obsolete by finished work of Christ (Gal. 4:9). Even if this interpretation is false, Peter likely is referring to vast purging final punishment, not the outright destruction of God’s entire creation in favor of some plan B. ↩
