On this week’s episode, SuperLutheran and RightWingNut discuss a listener email with 25 questions on race, inequality, and the Church.
The hymn during the break (1:19:50) is “Holy, Holy, Holy”.
Following the break, the Council discusses the harrowing of Hell.
- Has there been any literature written by the Hebrew Scribes, Church Fathers, or Christian Scientists to explain race or inequality in the world?
- Does Galatians 3:26-29 show that within the Church, things such as race, gender and class are all social constructs?
- Does Colossians 3:9-11 show that Christians should support equal rights for foreigners?
- Does Numbers 12 show that Christians should oppose anti-miscegenation laws?
- Does Acts 17:24-28 show that Christians should oppose race realism?
- Does Exodus 22:21 and Leviticus 19:33-34 show that Christians should support migration, refugees, and racial strangers in their countries?
- Did Abraham and Isaac want their sons to marry women from Aram because of racial kinship, or because the Arameans did not practice idolatry or because there were no Canaanites who still worshiped God, or were willing to worship the God of Abraham?
- Is it Biblical to say that all men were created equal and are endowed by their creator with rights as humans, or is it Biblical to say that all men were created unequal and are endowed by their communities with rights as members?
- Is it Biblical to say that only some racial groups are genetically capable of creating high civilizations and well-ordered societies?
- Is it Biblical to say that generational blessings and curses cause genetic inequality?
- Is it Biblical to say that evolution, natural selection and selective breeding cause genetic inequality?
- Is it Biblical to say that because Noah said, “God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant” that all the genetic descendants of Japheth have been given a genetic ability to enlarge themselves in the world?
- Is it Biblical to say that because Noah said, “Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant” that all the genetic descendants of Shem have been given a genetic superiority over the descendants of Canaan?
- Is it Biblical to say that because Noah said, “Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren” that all the genetic descendants of Canaan have been given inferiority compared to those who have not mixed with Canaanites?
- Is it Biblical to say that Angels have interbreed with Men and passed on genetic advantages and/or disadvantages to their descendants? If true, do you believe that so called Neanderthal DNA has anything to do with so called Nephilim genetics?
- Is it Biblical to say that genetic equality will only be achieved after the resurrection of the body?
- Is it Biblical to say that Christianity can improve racial genetics, and/or remove generational curses? (Example: Have Christian Ethiopians become genetically superior to Islamic Somalis via religious differences?)
- Is it Biblical to practice eugenics, or to look for good breeding when choosing a mate, or for a state to enact racial hygiene legislation for its people?
- Is it Biblical for Christians to make war upon one another for racial, ethnic, familial or for geo-political reasons? (1st Example: During the Swedish War of Liberation the Christian Danes fought for the Familial rights of King Christian II to the Swedish crown and the Christian Swedes fought for ethnic freedom from Danish rule. 2nd Example: During the American war for Independence from Britain, Christians fought each other over American geo-politics. 3rd Example: European Christians fighting to remove from Europe their resident racial strangers, who might also be Christians.)
- Concerning the history of racial discrimination in Christian countries, was it contrary to the Church for King Louis XVI to forbid “whites of either sex to contract marriage with blacks, mulattos or other people of color”, and likewise was it contrary for Bob Jones University to maintain the policy that “God intended segregation of the races and that the Scriptures forbid interracial marriage”?
- Were Fascist states essentially Antichristian as the victorious powers of the Second World War had publicly stated?
- Was it contrary to the Church’s doctrine for Adolf Hitler to have promoted the following ideas: “We demand freedom of religion for all religious denominations within the state so long as they do not endanger its existence or oppose the moral senses of the Germanic race. The Party as such advocates the standpoint of a positive Christianity without binding itself confessionally to any one denomination. It combats the Jewish-materialistic spirit within and around us and is convinced that a lasting recovery of our nation can only succeed from within on the framework: “The good of the community before the good of the individual”? (To rephrase the question, is it contrary to the Church’s doctrine for Adolf Hitler to imply that Christianity that does not support the German Nation is Negative Christianity?
- Was it contrary to the Church’s doctrine for Corneliu Codreanu to have promoted the following ideas?:“The ultimate goal is not life. It is resurrection. The resurrection of nations in the name of Jesus Christ the Savior. Creation and culture are only means–not the purpose–of resurrection. Culture is the fruit of talent, which God implanted in our nation and for which we are responsible. A time will come when all the world’s nations will arise from the dead, with all their dead, with all their kings and emperors. Every nation has its place before God’s throne. That final moment, “resurrection from the dead,” is the highest and most sublime goal for which a nation can strive. The nation is thus an entity that lives even beyond this earth. Nations are realities also in the other world, not only on this one. To us Romanians, to our nation, as to every nation in the world, God assigned a specific mission; God has given us a historical destiny. The first law that every nation must abide by is that of attaining that destiny, of fulfilling the mission entrusted to it.
- Is it Biblical for Christians to be concerned about maintaining high civilizations and well-ordered societies in their countries via racial policies and Ethno-Nationalism?
- Given that “If a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand”, how can the Church be united when there exists racial, gender and class inequality among Christians?
