The Church Needs To Be Obsessed With Sex

sodom 2.jpg

Sodom and Gomorrah.

The “God is love” movement has turned Christendom from truth to feelings, sentimental connection, and endless philosophical speculation. Divinely revealed reality has been replaced with a passive gentleness that is fully accepting of all people and all things just for sake of avoiding the ugly feelings of rejection. Compassion has become equated with comfort and acceptance.

Part of this acceptance is sexuality in all forms. While the traditional expectations of chastity before marriage between one man and one woman in a lifelong union are given a nod of respect, the emergence of non-traditional sexuality enshrined and embraced in a new community of sexual openness is the new litmus test for the Church. To reject the “gay” community, which includes all forms of sexuality from homo- to bi-sexuality and allows for casual sexuality without any expectation of fidelity, is to be a church called “judgmental” and “fundamentalist.” To prove God is love, the Church is called to accept the “gay” community, providing a place where there is never criticism of non-traditional sexuality. The comfort of acceptance free from the judgment of rejection is the goal.

At the same time, the “God is love” movement is also heralding the ongoing call for “compassion” for the poor and disenfranchised, especially racial minorities, women and gays. Compassion is acceptance for those who feel rejected. The idea of compassion for the less fortunate is indeed a noble goal and enshrined in the heart of Christianity. Those who are in the traditional camps who feel rejected and disenfranchised by the new movement are, however, quietly ignored.

Historically, Christianity offered a view that puts acceptance of sexual license at odds with compassion and in fact views sexual license as the forerunner of social cruelty.

One of the more profound accounts in biblical history is that of Sodom and Gomorrah. It records a community in such a state of sexual depravity that the men of the city sought to have sex with the men who were staying with Lot. And Lot himself offers his daughters to the crowd as virgin sacrifices and is later date-raped by his own daughters (cf. Genesis 19). The level of sexual anarchy was such that God destroyed the city. Until recently, the word “sodomy” was used to describe homosexual sex between two men or any kind of sexuality that included the violation of the anus, the very mark of complete sexual depravity.

Some have argued, in defense of the open sexuality, that Sodom was not destroyed because of its sexual proclivities, but because it did not care for the poor. As proof, they quote Ezekiel 16:49:

Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, surfeit of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy.

However, the apostle Paul saw a connection between sexual license and cruelty. In the first chapter of Romans, in the second half, he lays a blanket accusation against man from God. In this declaration of universal guilt, he marks as a sign of man’s descent into depravity three major points.

First, man rejects acknowledging God, including his accountability to and dependence on Him:

For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their senseless minds were darkened (Romans 1:21).

Second, having turned away from God, the immediate result is sexual anarchy:

Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves (Romans 1:24).

Finally, without God and in a state of sexual anarchy, they become cruel and malicious:

They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless (Romans 1:29-31).

Sexual license is the surest sign of man rejecting God and a guarantee of a cruel society. The Church being obsessed with sex is important because no society can rightly claim to be just and compassionate while holding a state of sexual anarchy. For a man to claim to be a compassionate Christian and yet live a life of sexual license is to live a lie. Chastity and charity go hand in hand.

True compassion in and from the Church will only be achieved when marriage is again upheld as a binding institution and all other forms of sexuality are soundly and thoroughly rejected. This includes divorce, casual sex, and the pernicious lie that is called the “gay lifestyle.” Men must reject sexual hedonism and the feminist exaltation of women and return to God, dedicating themselves to Christ, Tradition, and Scripture. Then they will have a foundation from which to embrace a wife and children and the world in the compassion of truth and service.

If men cannot govern and care for themselves in terms of sex, then there is no reason to  expect them to care for others in everyday life.

A Moment Of Sober Reflection

Crusader warrior.jpg

Sometimes the battle against evil and sin takes its toll on a warrior. He fights a hundred battles against himself each day as well as the larger battle that is with him every waking moment in the world around him.

Satan, in his great wrath, is relentless, malicious, and devoid of surrender. In order for a man to live, the devil must die. No eloquent speeches or warm-hearted, closed door meetings to hammer out a world-making agreement two hundred pages long. No, that will not do.

For a man to live righteously, he must draw his sword and run the thing through Satan’s heart, to the hilt, and will a loud cry of “Christus Victoria!

However, Satan, stabbed and bleeding, is not going to retreat without a fight. The warrior, the Holy Crusader for the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Church, must fight with as much vigor and relentless resolve as his enemy.

The kingdom does indeed suffereth violence and the violent bear it away.

Is White Genocide God’s Doing?

Podcast

In my Protestant years, I was a student of eschatology and the end times. In modern protestant thinking, Israel plays a major roll in events immediately preceding the return of Christ. The fundamental idea is that God has blinded Jews to the reality of Jesus as Christ while giving the Kingdom to the Gentiles for a finite period of time.

In Pauls’ letter to the church in Rome, he writes:

I must not fail, brethren, to make this revelation known to you; or else you might have too good a conceit of yourselves. Blindness has fallen upon a part of Israel, but only until the tale of the Gentile nations is complete … they [Israel] are rebels now, obtaining pardon for you, only to be pardoned in their turn (Romans 11:25,32).

I will make some observations.

  • Paul wrote this declaration to the Roman Christians. Essentially, these were Catholics as Rome was the foothold from which Christianity grew, blossomed and blessed the world. By the first century, the basics of the Roman Catholic faith, including the Sacraments, the Magisterium, and the Holy Orders were already established with the Latin language of the Roman Empire.
  • The decline of the Roman Church has been especially acute in the past fifty years, as Church leadership has softened the heritage of the Roman Latin Church to make way for more modern concepts like equality and inclusiveness.
  • The Protestant Reformation could be considered the great “falling away” that the Apostle Paul wrote about in 2 Thessalonians 2: Do not let anyone find the means of leading you astray. The apostasy must come first; the champion of wickedness must appear first, destined to inherit perdition. This is the rebel who is to lift up his head above every divine name, above all that men hold in reverence, till at last he enthrones himself in God’s temple, and proclaims himself as God. (vv 3-4). Without the singular authority of God in the Roman Church, each individual man is left to be his own authority, to essentially appoint himself as God’s anointed, whether he is actually of God or not. The result has been a Christian faith and culture that has been free falling into tragic decadence and irrelevance.

If today’s demographical and racial decimation of Europe is the work of God fulfilling the “Times of the Gentiles,” then the emerging dominance of Jews in Israel  and American media might mean that Christ is getting close to revealing Himself to Israel. The weakening of the Gentiles through the weakening of the Church that Christ founded in Rome may be a sign that Christ’s return is near.

If this is true, it is bittersweet. No citizen of Christendom would sanely celebrate its decline and yet its decline may mean a greater event, the return of Jesus Christ to earth.

I write these things as suggestions only. I am not a prophet of Christ nor do I claim to be.

The Left Needs Forgiveness

White guilt.jpgComing from a blog that spouts traditional and conservative views, this title might sound downright shocking. Forgiveness? Is it not such lines of thought that has caused conservatives to compromise the traditions of their fathers and led us into the mess we see today?

The forgiveness they need will not and should not come from Traditionalists. After all, Traditionalists are mortal men and man is not equal with God. The forgiveness American Progressives need can only come from God through His grace given to the Church.

For the better part of the past century, the Left has been driven by white guilt. It was seeded by their grandfathers, perpetuated by their fathers, and has consumed their children who now go to college to be trained in the arts of Social Justice and who join militant Marxist groups like Antifa.

Michael Moore Tweet

Instead of seeking redemption through revolution and revenge against their fellow countrymen, they perhaps would be better people all around if they went to Confession instead to Congress. However, the Left, having fully accepted the new trinity of Darwin, Marx, and Freud, has Left behind Christ and His cross, God’s own offering of forgiveness toward sinners, even if those sinners believe themselves guilty of crimes they themselves did not commit.

The Alt-Right has emerged in defiance of the accusations of perpetual white guilt, which serves to validate the white guilt that the left has become dependent on for its sense of identity. The Left says, “White man, thou art damned!” and the Alt-Right says, “White man, thou art innocent!”

Yet, will any say, “Christ, thou art Lord!”

Kate By Tennyson

Alfred Lord Tennyson.jpg

I know her by her angry air,
Her bright black eyes, her bright black hair,
Her rapid laughters wild and shrill,
As laughter of the woodpecker
From the bosom of a hill.
‘Tis Kate–she sayeth what she will;
For Kate hath an unbridled tongue,
Clear as the twanging of a harp.
Her heart is like a throbbing star.
Kate hath a spirit ever strung
Like a new bow, and bright and sharp
As edges of the scymetar.
Whence shall she take a fitting mate?
For Kate no common love will feel;
My woman-soldier, gallant Kate,
As pure and true as blades of steel.

Kate saith “the world is void of might”.
Kate saith “the men are gilded flies”.
Kate snaps her fingers at my vows;
Kate will not hear of lover’s sighs.
I would I were an armèd knight,
Far famed for wellwon enterprise,
And wearing on my swarthy brows
The garland of new-wreathed emprise:
For in a moment I would pierce
The blackest files of clanging fight,
And strongly strike to left and right,
In dreaming of my lady’s eyes.
Oh! Kate loves well the bold and fierce;
But none are bold enough for Kate,
She cannot find a fitting mate.

Civilization Not Utopia

 

Building Civilization

As men who have been converted away from the various empty philosophies of this modern age into the Church and Christendom, even as they appear to be crumbling before astonished eyes, the question must be asked. What does a man actually do with his faith? We are encouraged by the apostle Paul to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. Paul understood that there was work to be done.

The preacher and pulpit model of evangelical Christianity prioritizes the saving of lost souls at the expense of all other pursuits. Given that Jesus Himself stated His mission was to save that which was lost, this is not without merit. But what of the other activities that men take up in their daily life? What of the daily work, marriage and family, and all that goes long with those? If a man is not careful, he might get the impression that living any life other than that of wandering evangelist is downright evil.

There exist an underlying dichotomy that pits the work of man against his Creator, calling all human works evil and only God’s work as good. Given how many trials and temptations a man faces in life, telling men their work is meaningless is not motivational. Aggravating this fatalism are the other extremes of judgment-free wealth and utopian social engineering. One disparages the work of human hands and the other exalts it.

Men are at their best when they are building and even better when doing so in pursuit of God’s goodness. Building a family is good, building a civilized Catholic family is even better. Building stable finances is good, building finances capable of enduring hardship, donating to charity, and leaving behind an inheritance is even better. So with salvation, sharing the faith is good. Sharing the faith and building good works is even better. When one looks at the history of the Catholic Church, the list of good works include charity to the poor, preservation of language and education in the face of violent upheaval, and numerous innovations in society that provided so much good to people living in Western Civilization and worldwide. Much of the enrichment, justice, and abundance enjoyed by the West came from men who understood that saving souls was not the limit of God’s good work on earth.

Civilization is equated in the thought of popular Christianity with the building of the Tower of Babel, the historical attempt of rebellious men to construct a world without God. Because of this any and all attempts to build any sort of civilization is viewed as acts of evil and the sole act of good left is a kind of withdrawal and indifference to the affairs of Church and State. Building a good society, a civilization, is equated with attempting to build “heaven on earth.” This is wrong.

There is a difference between men attempting to build a civilization and attempting to build a utopian society.

Good men, especially those whose thoughts are governed by the goodness of Christianity, understand that man is a fallen creature, capable of corruption and evil. They know that no man is perfect and therefore his work will always be imperfect. Civilization is the refusal to succumb to the corrupting forces that constantly pull men toward decadence, destruction, and bloodshed while understanding that the refusal and resistance can never be complete. Jesus declared that man will always have the poor. So it is that good men attempt to alleviate poverty, knowing that it cannot be completely eliminated. They attempt to alleviate murder, knowing that there will always be murderers. Injustice is righted as much as possible while recognizing that there will always be injustice. In this, good men build religious, education, and government centers to solidify that resistance against evil for the sake of those who seek to live righteously, even if imperfectly. For the civilized man he builds knowing that perfection will only come when his perfect Creator comes to end all human suffering.

Evil men deny that man is fallen and instead believe that man is fundamentally good. Building on this, they seek to build utopia, a civilization that does not simply mitigate poverty, but seeks to eliminate it completely. The goal, the dream, is a civilization of perfection, where destruction and bloodshed are purged and human suffering is utterly removed. For the utopian man, he is his own creator and his own savior and human suffering will only be eliminated by his own evolutionary climb toward perfection. The evil of the pursuit is that lust allows any ends to justify the means. Injustice is allowed if it will achieve justice.

To deny man’s ability and call to build a Christian civilization is to stifle the potential that Christ gave man when He ascended into Heaven and left man His commands and Spirit. Catholic men are the salt of the earth and they should strive to build a city on a hill. If they do not then they leave their neighbor to die at the hands of evil or die themselves. Or they leave their fellow man to sell their souls in pursuit of other gods who will promise them peace on earth through utopian visions.

Men should strive to build civilizations. It is an act of good in a world of evil, an obligation even, and without civilization, there is only a descent into barbarism.

Missing The Potent Questions

American family.jpg

Targeted for mass deportation.

New York Times writer Bret Stephens declares that the mass deportation of American “nonimmigrants” would best benefit the United States. Stephens writes,

They need to return whence they came … I speak of Americans whose families have been in this country for a few generations. Complacent, entitled and often shockingly ignorant on basic points of American law and history, they are the stagnant pool in which our national prospects risk drowning.

Given that America is only a few generations old, he is, of course, speaking of Americans whose roots are European, especially Anglo. White people.

His main points proving that nonimmigrants have become useless to America are:

  • Nonimmigrants commit more crime.
  • Nonimmigrants lack serious academic achievement.
  • Nonimmigrants are losing their Christian faith.
  • Nonimmigrants start less businesses.
  • Nonimmigrants have more illegitimate births.
  • Nonimmigrants are declining in numbers.

Now, statics could easily be found that dispute some of these points, if not all of them. Such is the of nature statistics. This information is all but useless because the important questions that need to be asked are not being asked.

  • What forces caused nonimmigrants to abandon the educated, family-oriented, English-speaking Christian culture of their forefathers?
  • What convinced them that America was no longer worth appreciation?
  • Since conservatives failed to protect nonimmigrants from this decline, why do they believe that they can protect immigrants from those same forces?
  • Once the immigrants who will replace the nonimmigrants become as useless as the nonimmigrants they replaced, then what?

Stephens also states that he is a “conservative columnist,” revealing that the label of “conservative” no longer has any meaning.
