Racism in the Bible

Racism in the Bible

“Somewhere along the line, the Devil convinced mankind of the evil, red-horned, pitch-forked, persona. If you see the enemy of all mankind this way, you will lose the battle.”

West World. The Roman Empire

I don’t think most Americans realize America is the descendant of the Roman Empire. Our architecture, our religion (Roman Catholicism) our system of government. All Roman.

The Bible is the historical record of the condition of mankind. How and why he does what he does. The kind of government that naturally evolves out of, and because of, that condition, and the spiritual world behind everything.

As you’ve heard me say before… socialism was born in the garden of Eden at the temptation. In the Bible, government is the evil in the world, and Satan is believed to be behind it. And where there are a lot of people, there is more government.

The writers of the divine revelation understood, people tend to congregate and what they do when they are together. Spiritual forces are always at work when men and women are involved. The Bible demonstrates this and uses a very specific writing style to reveal this hidden spiritual or invisible reality. It is called apocalyptic language.

ápokálypsis is a Greek word meaning “revelation”, “an unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known and which could not be known apart from the unveiling.

I want you to focus on, “Things not previously known and which could not be known apart from the unveiling.” There are somethings in the Bible that will not be revealed until they happen. Because it will be the events themselves that reveal the meaning of what the Bible says.

In the literary world, this style of writing gained popularity in post-Exilic Jewish culture. I mean think about it. The Jewish people wanted freedom, and these crazy guys called prophets were saying that God gave them information about their future. People felt good about it, that is, until the prophets informed them that their behavior was the reason.

Okay… first off.

We believe the Bible is the error-free, inspired, Word of God. And in the superintending of the writing of His revelation, He used apocalyptic imagery to reveal the hidden spiritual world. These images are of prehistoric relevance to the writers. Again, these are not city dwellers. Paul, maybe, slightly. Especially in the old testament.

The Book of Revelation

The book of ápokálypsis or “revelation”. Remember? An unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known and which could not be known apart from the unveiling.

Fishermen and nomadic sheppard people. The nomadic elder wanderer, up until Abraham… who keeps watch of his flock. Who has fought off wolves and big cats. Who sleeps in the open air under skies we’ll never see… these are the writers. The imagery used in the language of “unveiling” – they did not see it as we do. He sets off to write. No matter if a scribe is used or not. What will it look like?

He looks across fields, he sees wild animals. This is who these people are.

To the jew. These people, these gentiles, they loved the city. They called it Babylon. There are uncivilized. They act like all animals. Their God is their belly. And for all of these people, it was all about race. You did what you did and lived as you lived because of your race.

A New Race

Wow… a new man. A new species. A new race, made up of all races.

Racism has always existed and always will. Only the Messiah will end it. Man will try. That is the task of the anti-Christ… to unify the two people groups that hate each other the most.

The Good Samaritan is a story meant to break racial barriers.

The gnostics believed God would never stoop so low as to inhabit flesh, they not only believed it to be absurd but also impossible. The Jew felt the same about the gentile, and the gentile had similar notions of the Jew. Just read the book of Ester.

The Christian cannot think it strange when man acts out these horrible – ultimately racist – normal notions.

The Bible not only reveals the nature of God to man, but it reveals the nature of man, to man.

A Democracy must have engineered Social Peer-Pressure to prevent its overthrow. Mob rules. Herd mentality. You’ve heard all the buzz words. But maybe a word you haven’t heard used is Base, and animalistic.

Peer-pressure happens in groups. And it is quite natural for a nomadic sheppard-people – the jews – to concern themselves with what would be known today as flat-landers. Or, City dwellers.

And it’s also natural for one faction of this family to bad-mouth the other family members. Come one… be honest. Every family does it. However, the difference is, the collection of the books that make up the Bible were written from the standpoint of nomadic culture and family structure. They had elders. They were naturally the ones running the show. Like the mafia, minus the crime.

So, a nomadic peoples would trade in towns as they wandered the same trails for hundreds even thousands of years. Staying in the borders, living in the middle of nowhere to avoid not only other people but to avoid border troops. In those days, that’d be the equivalent to the cops. Out that far, away from civilization, prisoners were not taken.

For over a thousand years, this people wandered endlessly through the horn of Africa, till one day he came to a great land.

Abram, a wonderer, with lots of sheep, goats, camels… and no land, and he is okay with it. I mean, do you understand, it’s the middle eastern, Asiatic, whatever-you-want-to-call-it, version of the American Indians.

“One world” is synonymous with this. The tower of Babble. The more the merrier. Ha. The more the sinnier.

Socialism: the religion of communism. Communes are not natural in nature. It needs the inducement of [wants] and [needs] as a form of hidden control to prevent anarchy and rebellion against itself:

The beast will not lead the mob per-se… he will control the mob by way of righteous indignation.

The Beast, with wisdom greater than Daniel’s, will play both sides against each other with a race war. It’s always been bother against brother. Cain kills Able over and over again. The great family feud.

The AntiChrist will control the revolution with Racism. Oh, he’ll look completely innocent… but actually he will be behind it. He cannot force people to do what they’ll do with a Jedi mind-trick like powers, like in the movies. What he will do, however… is use true, real sorcery to control people.

I want your opinion

So, I need to hear from you the reader. I’d like to release my newest Dark Tour Co. as I write it, rather than after it is completed. And I’d like to do it here.

The ongoing story would be part of the blog. Would that be something, you the reader would enjoy. Like at the bottom of the blog.

Please leave a comment letting me know what you think.

A great raffle

  1. We are being refined
    By fire removing the dross, the wheat from the tares. The goats from the sheep

  2. Just as Shawn has been saying: God is in control of it all! We need to understand that it was God’s work that exposed this flaw in us. The distrust of others, the judging based on looks, the gathering of the like, the racism; ultimately, all division of man comes from God’s exacerbation of this animalistic flaw when He confused the languages at the Tower of Babel. Division among the unrepentant of this world is God ordained. But, He calls His faithful to be different. God wants us to be unified. we are to reject our animalistic ways and learn that Love has no boundaries among His righteous ones. We must put aside division and understand what Paul is saying here in 1 Corinthians 12:12-13:

    “For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.”

    Go read for yourself all of chapter 12 and then read chapter 13. Chapter 12 shows us that we should have unity in the body; and chapter 13 tells us how to do it: LOVE!
