3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the dis­ci­ples came unto him pri­vately, say­ing, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy com­ing, and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, say­ing, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not trou­bled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and king­dom against king­dom: and there shall be famines, and pesti­lences, and earth­quakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the begin­ning of sorrows.

(‭Matthew‬ ‭24‬:‭38KJV; empha­sis mine)

Many read­ers of the Bible think of the polit­i­cal def­i­n­i­tion of the word nation – nation-​state – when the word comes up, and for­get or never learned that ‘nation’ also refers to eth­nic groups and tribes. It also refers to what we think of as racial groups. Strong’s Con­cor­dance con­firms this.

We all know that there would be no riots and that few black Amer­i­cans would give a rat’s about the Fer­gu­son shoot­ing if Michael Brown had not been black or if Dar­ren Wil­son were black.

So we can con­clude that the uproar about the deci­sion of the Grand Jury has no rela­tion to right and wrong, or to actual jus­tice. It’s about trib­al­ism– “my tribe, right or wrong.”

Social “jus­tice” is the issue here – a pri­mary tenet of Left­ism. Leftism’s pri­mary root is division.

Back in the Bible day, before the redemp­tive action of Christ, it went like this: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth; the sins of the father are vis­ited upon the son, down to ten gen­er­a­tions. In other words, you always had to pay for your actions and so did your chil­dren. And this is the law to which those black peo­ple who are still angry about Amer­i­can slav­ery want to sub­scribe – even some of those who say they are Christians.

So when we – any of us – sub­scribe to trib­al­ism, here’s what we are doing, basi­cally: we are deny­ing the Redemp­tion of Christ, and we are becom­ing a part of His prophecy in Matthew 24, a prophecy which is not meant for Chris­tians (my opinion).

Those who do this and who are up front about not being Chris­tians are more honest…and they will have less to answer for when they have a face-​to-​face with God.

Charles Manson, a failure when it came to ginning up racial war

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

(‭Matthew‬ ‭24‬:‭3-8‬ KJV; emphasis mine)

Many readers of the Bible think of the political definition of the word nation–nation-state–when the word comes up, and forget or never learned that ‘nation’ also refers to ethnic groups and tribes. It also refers to what we think of as racial groups. Strong’s Concordance confirms this.

We all know that there would be no riots and that few black Americans would give a rat’s about the Ferguson shooting if Michael Brown had not been black or if Darren Wilson were black.

So we can conclude that the uproar about the decision of the Grand Jury has no relation to right and wrong, or to actual justice. It’s about tribalism– “my tribe, right or wrong.”

Social “justice” is the issue here–a primary tenet of Leftism. Leftism’s primary root is division.

Back in the Bible day, before the redemptive action of Christ, it went like this: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth; the sins of the father are visited upon the son, down to ten generations. In other words, you always had to pay for your actions and so did your children. And this is the law to which those black people who are still angry about American slavery want to subscribe–even some of those who say they are Christians.

So when we–any of us–subscribe to tribalism, here’s what we are doing, basically: we are denying the Redemption of Christ, and we are becoming a part of His prophecy in Matthew 24, a prophecy which is not meant for Christians (my opinion).

Those who do this and who are up front about not being Christians are more honest…and they will have less to answer for when they have a face-to-face with God.
