Honest individuals will note that life is hard these days for a Kinist.
We’re not allowed to speak our minds in public and our family reunions are rife with suspicion and dramatic confrontations with liberal family-members. It’s not enough that we have to face the usual questions, “why don’t you make as much money as your cousin?” “Why aren’t you married?” etc. We also have to endure their (un)righteous indignation and in many tragic cases, their cold-shoulders. Even worse, some of us have to stave off attempts at evangelization by zealous judeo-xtians who are trapped deep’n’wide in a Satanic cultural hegemony (down in their hearts) where egalitarian peace flows like a river. We have to go swimming with them or we’ll end up in Hell! (I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if Hell is the England of Dickens and Austen, then consign me to the seventh-level of it!)
So we Kinists eagerly accept any gift the Lord gives us, including a thorough appreciation of the great scholars and theologians of the past who survived modernism’s transforming effect on Christendom and came out swinging.
Dr. Francis Nigel Lee is one of those. Raised in South Africa, he was uniquely situated to see the harsh realities of cultural Marxism and racial-egalitarianism.
You can read up on Lee for yourself — I’ll simply say that he’s like a South African version of R.J. Rushdoony.
Lee, however, is more self-consciously nationalistic in his rhetoric than Rushdoony. (At least, I’ve never heard Rushdoony state things as definitively as Lee on these issues.)
Waylander’s Keep has done great work in putting together clips from both Rushdoony and Lee, so please check out his site for more.
The following will be an excerpt from one of Lee’s sermons called “The Purpose of Man” and begins at 18:00 in:
“Notice then, that once marriage has produced the family and the various families go out into the world from one another and ultimately they produce the kin. The kin — the clan. The Clan the nation. The Nation the world. In the end, we have the whole of humanity descended from Adam and Eve and living over the whole world. The whole human race, then, is one family in spite of differences.
Here again we see a reflection of the trinity. One God but a diversity of persons within the one God. A Father a Son and a Spirit. This is reflected in the diversity of the entire human race throughout the world and even within each one of our families. Our children are not the same as one another. They have differences and yet, they all have a basic humanity.
Now let’s deal with nationalization by which I mean the formation and development of nationality. Now filling or replenishing the Earth, as men left their fathers and mothers and trekked further and further with their wives into the world, this ultimately would have resulted in the development of different nations. We’re told in Acts 17, for example, God made out of one blood all of the nations of man for to dwell over the face of the whole Earth.
And it seems to me that nations would have come into being, even if man had not fallen into sin. But, after man fell into sin, naturally national differences are much more intensified then they would have been. I think there would have been some race-consciousness if man had not fallen, but there would have been no racial hatred between people, or racial friction or national friction or linguistic friction (such as in Canada between English and French speaking people.) They would have had the different languages, but they would have gotten along with one another.
At this point in the sermon (19:54), Lee goes into an argument countering the Liberals and their egalitarian, anti-nationalist interpretation of the Pentecost narrative. Lee makes this argument in at least two different sermons and so, I’ll exclude this part from my post today and take a more extensive look at his argument in a future blog.
At 21:16, Lee Concludes:
Now sanctified nationalities exist both in the church militant here on Earth, here and now, and I believe they will still exist on the new Earth to come. The very last page of the Bible tells us this. The nations of those that are saved shall walk in the light of the Heavenly Jerusalem. And the kings of the Earth shall bring the glory and the honor and cultural treasures of the nations into the Heavenly city.
Therefore, it seems to me, we Christians should work for both a Christian national order as well as work for a Christian international order. But we should not work for an un-national or anti-national order. Some people use the word “international” loosely as if it meant anti-national or un-national, it doesn’t. To be really “international” you presuppose that there’s something worth preserving in your nation and that there’s something good in the other man’s nation that you want to learn about, and then you work together.
Again, the principle of the trinity. Each person, or in this case, each nation, reinforcing one another and needing the other without sacrifice of the personality, on the one hand, or of the national treasures of the nation concerned, on the other.
