And Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.” Then some of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these words, and said to Him, “Are we blind also?” Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, ‘We see.’ Therefore your sin remains. –John 9: 39-41
My fantasy house is the one overlooking the sea on the coast of Cornwall in the 1944 movie The Uninvited. Of course I would want the ghosts evicted before I claimed possession of the house. My second choice, if the house in Cornwall was unavailable, would be a house overlooking a lake in the Lake District of England or in Maine. I do not currently live near an ocean or a lake, nor is it likely I ever shall, so why bring up a frivolous house-show topic? I bring up such a topic because I want to make a clumsy analogy: During my children’s younger years we were lucky enough to live within driving distance (a half-hour) of a wonderful lake in the woods. We didn’t limit our visits to the lake to the summer time, we went there throughout the four seasons. Once in the early spring we visited the lake on two consecutive days. On the first day the lake was covered with ice, then on the second day the lake was completely free of ice. I had never seen such a dramatic, rapid deicing before. In previous years the ice on the lake had gradually melted away. No doubt something momentous had been taking place below the surface before that dramatic transformation, but externally it appeared to be an instantaneous process that had to be seen to be believed. Such has been the case with Western culture. Going into the 1960s it seemed that the European people retained all the customs and manners of their Christian forebears, but when those customs and manners were challenged in the mid 1960s, all those customs and manners dating back over a thousand years seemed to crumble, from a cultural standpoint, almost instantaneously. Obviously, something was going on internally for a long time, something within the soul of the European people, that made their transformation from a Christian people into a post-Christian people almost instantaneous. That something, the internal cancer, was of course the thing called liberalism. We have not yet come to grips with that hideous entity, which is why the European people no longer exist as a people; they are the first race of unmen that the world has ever known.
Burke was correct when he said that the first liberal was the devil. The devil hates God and His people with a deep and abiding hatred. Because of that hatred, the devil had to destroy Christian Europe; he had to turn Christendom into Satandom. He has accomplished that seemingly impossible task by patiently undermining all things human and Christian, using Christian rhetoric and maintaining the outward forms of Christianity to kill the substance of Christianity, a heartfelt faith in the Word made flesh.
There are no liberals to be found in the ranks of the colored people. Some, in the European nations, will ape liberalism to obtain a position in Liberaldom, but they always remain true inside to the non-liberal tenets of their race. They are worshipped by the white liberals who hate their own race, but the colored people do not love the white liberals, nor do they have anything in common with them. True, they hate the white race as the liberals hate the white race, but not for the same reason. The coloreds make use of the liberals’ hatred of the white race for their own ends, but they do not understand the reason for the liberals’ hatred of their own people. How can they? It is completely outside their frame of reference. The colored heathen, who loves his people to the extent that a heathen can love, cannot understand how a man can hate his own people as the liberals hate their people. The operative word is ‘man.’ The liberals are not part of humanity – they have become unmen.
In order to become a race of unmen you must have once, in your past, been a Christian people. Only when you have reached the pinnacle of human culture, when you have touched the heart of God through the God-Man, Jesus Christ, can you become less than human by repudiating the God-Man, Jesus Christ. There is a terrible judgement hanging over the heads of the European people. In the midst of mortal pain our Lord said, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” The liberals know what they are doing; they are trying to eradicate the living God from the hearts of His people, because they hate the living God as Satan hates the living God.(1) The stink of liberalism is far greater than the stink of heathenism, because the post Christian liberal is closer to Satan than the heathens of color are.
The summer’s flow’r is to the summer sweet
Though to itself it only live and die,
But if that flow’r with base infection meet,
The basest weed outbraves his dignity:
For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;
Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds.
“Sonnet 94” by Shakespeare
Satan is a coward. Byron and Milton invest him with a brave, pagan nobility, but they are wrong. He did not attack the Christian Europeans in a stand-up fight, he attacked by way of infection. Liberalism was and is the “base infection” that killed the Christian Europeans. The satanic liberals did not tell the Christian, “You must kill your kith and kin.” No, they, like the devil they serve, are far more subtle. They told the white Christian that it is not Christian to love your kith and kin more than the stranger. Then they worked on that initial break from our human ties of affection and love by extending the premise of, “You must love the stranger as you love your kith and kin” to “You must despise your kith and kin.” And on it goes: The code of chivalry, which includes a respect for the ‘fair sex,’ becomes a capitulation to the Lady Macbeths of feminism, who must kill their infants in the name of womanhood, womanhood as defined by Satan. And in the ultimate perversion of our faith, the liberals have transformed our love of Christ into a love for the sacred noble savages of color. Is it any wonder that the European lilies now give off an odious smell far worse than the heathen weeds of color?
When faith in Jesus Christ becomes a philosophy, when it becomes an intellectual construct, faith in Jesus Christ disappears because the Christian faith loses its distinctive character. Christ’s claim to be the one true God, to be God incarnate, is so shocking, so incredibly different from every mind-forged philosophy of God before or after Christ’s incarnation, that His claim must be dismissed as absurd unless we threw out all the laws of science and logic in order to see through and not with the eye. The ‘Christian’ empiricists refused to throw out their rationalism, their view of God as the sum of nature’s many parts, and as a consequence, our Lord and Savior became one God in a pantheon of nature gods. The comparative religion classes that sprang up in the ‘religious studies’ departments in U.S. universities in the 1960s were studies in atheism. When studied, the Christ story dissolves into a dew – a vague cosmic feeling. Our people who took the Christ story into their hearts dissolved into a dew as well, when the Christ story became a philosophy. Their identity as a people was inextricably linked with Christ as the beginning and the end of history; if He was not God, then they were not a people. The European people went from being the Christ-bearers to festering lilies that smell far worse than weeds.
In the same Chapter of Luke, Chapter 23, in which Christ says, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do,” the good thief rebukes his fellow thief for railing against Christ, and he asks Christ to forgive him his sins and remember him when He comes into His kingdom.
And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise. – Luke 23: 39-43
If we do not see that Liberaldom is a garden of festering lilies, that it is a colony of sinners who know what they have done, we will become part of Liberaldom and we will be “lost, lost, lost.” The thief on the cross should be our exemplar, not the Jewish rulers and Roman soldiers who mocked Christ while He was on the cross. What had He done to warrant their hatred? He dared to claim that He was the Son of the living God, the fulfillment of the prophecies that the Jewish rulers were supposed to believe in, and He dared to claim He was the God above the nature gods in which the Romans believed. And therein lies the key to the internal rebellion that had been building for centuries, which finally became manifest in what seemed like an instantaneous event in the 1960s. The Rousseaus, the Shaws, and the Voltaires could not accept the absurdity of a God above nature, a God who rose from the dead on the third day, nor could they accept the uniqueness of that God — they could not believe that there was one true God who would condescend to enter human history. There it is – the liberals are one with Satan, they hate humanity, so they refuse to believe that God took flesh and dwelt among us. And every attempt to make Christianity respectable to the ‘intelligent’ men, the Shaws, Rousseaus, and the Voltaires, results in the naturalization of Christ; He becomes part of nature, and the European people become unmen who hate Christ and His people (2).
We cannot become natural weeds like the colored heathens. What seems disgusting when the colored indulge their appetites seems demonic in the Europeans because of the contrast between a lily and a festering lily. We can never go back, it is all or nothing. We cannot stand with the intelligentsia who mock and scorn our Lord, because they are the people who know what they are doing: They are one with Satan. Liberaldom is hell; we must reject it in its entirety and join with the good thief.+
(1) It’s possible that the Generation Xers and those following them no longer know what they are doing when they mock and scorn our Lord. After all, they have never known any culture other than the festering-lily culture of the Europeans and the weed-infested-garden culture of the colored heathens. But the European intelligentsia, our rulers, do know what they are doing. For the love of Him who died on the cross, we cannot stand with them as they “delight in vicariously defacing, degrading, torturing, and tearing in pieces His image in man.”
(2) If there was any doubt, which there cannot be, of the Satanic nature of liberalism, you need look no further than the recent debate and vote in the U.S. Senate on two abortion bills. One group of liberals thought that abortion should be legal at every stage of development including birth, while another group thought that abortion should be illegal after four months because that is when the fetus (they never call the child a child) feels pain. Then the first group of Satanists replied that there was no scientific proof that the fetus (translation: child) felt pain. There is the tragedy of the European people. They are unmen deciding the fate of actual human beings created in the image of God. And they always decide in favor of Satan, who hates God and humanity. We cannot live on peaceful terms with such creatures without becoming like unto them.
