One week before an historic presidential election in which nearly two thirds of white Americans made an openly nationalistic, anti-Third World, pro-European leader the 45th President of the United States, the Western world quietly commemorated the 499th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.
One year from now, we’ll be celebrating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s pivotal, and daring, 95 Theses. Luther’s bravery began a sequence of events that liberated northwestern Europe and North America from Roman rule and anti-biblical religion.
In a similar way, we hope and pray that our president-elect honors his promise to put “America First” and elevates the historic American nation — white people — to our rightful place as lords in our own castles, and rulers of our own country. Not too long ago such a thing seemed unimaginable. And yet here we are.
With pro-globalist leaders such as the Southern Baptist Convention’s Russell Moore, Jr., movements such as the PCA’s anti-white “racial reconciliation” overtures, of which more than 40 have been passed (including one as recent as this June) and the widespread Zionist, “Israel First” dispensationalism that pervades most conservative churches, is it possible that we heirs of the Reformation will ever see Protestant churches in our communities free of the tyranny of anti-white, anti-male political correctness?
It is truly akin to what Luther faced in the early 1500s.
Most people are familiar with the basics of his 95 Theses, which opposed the papally-sanctioned practice of indulgences — convincing people to pay money in return for forgiveness of some of their sins, thus reducing the number of centuries that they would need to burn in purgatory before entering heaven. The money collected from sales of indulgences went to pay for St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
Bad as that was, that was not all. For centuries, the Roman church had bilked its non-Italian subjects for large sums of money. Want a priest in your village? Pay up. Want a bishop who actually tends to the spiritual needs of the community? Pay more. Want an archbishop whose time and attention isn’t divided between multiple, hugely expansive archdioceses? We might be able to do that — for a very large fee.
Nobody should object to having to financially support the men who minister God’s Word and sacraments to them; that is a biblical command per 1 Corinthians 9. However, that’s not what the Vatican was demanding of Luther’s German countrymen. The money wasn’t only going to pay for the clergy’s salaries and expenses. Large portions went straight to unnecessary, lavish expenses racked up by the popes and their cliques in Rome.
Luther’s objection to the practice of indulgences was grounded both on his belief that Christians should not be forced to bow their consciences to unbiblical doctrines, and on his conviction that his countrymen — his flock — was being extorted, oppressed, and abused by foreigners…
