James White is a popular Reformed Baptist who never misses a chance to tell the world how many formal debates he’s had. Listening to him talk, you’d think he’s debated every Muslim in the world at least twice, and all the Roman Catholics thrice. A “professional” peddler of talking points, White makes his living by intellectually bullying women, children, and effeminate ideologues in public. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve benefited from some of his work – his book on the King James Onlyist controversy comes to mind. But he’s not a good writer and because he lacks editorial oversight on Youtube, his videos are little more than long-winded ramblings. But oh how Reformed folk (Baptist or Presbyterian) love the man. He’s the ideal modern Calvinist.
He shares a flaw with all other modernist theologians. He loves an abstracted set of doctrines more than the God of his ancestors. He doesn’t realize the abstracted set of doctrines has changed, though. He’s too naive to realize the sea-change in America’s outpost of Christendom.
To understand this, dear readers, I want you to think of a beautiful old hymn. A cherished hymn, sung by us all in childhood. Now, fast-forward in time fifty or so years, pretend you’re in a super-duper mega-church, surrounded by five hundred dancing brethren, all shouting to an abstracted savior and swaying to the beats of an African rock band. The band is playing the same song you knew from childhood – the same words anyway – but it’s a completely different melody. Really, they’re playing an entirely different song, just using the same old cherished words. The heart of the tune is different, crafted for a different purpose. We’ve all heard dozens of old hymns treated this way; turn on your radio to the local Contemporary Christian music station to hear a sampling.
Reformed Christianity in America has undergone the same transformation and Dr. White is still trying to sing the lyrics to the old, outdated song. All his critics hear this discord and are rightly attacking him for it.
White, you see, posted a simple Facebook post about a black boy he saw on the side of the road. This boy flipped off a passing police vehicle, then threw his drink bottle defiantly into the nearby bushes. James White took offense to this and said the boy was likely influenced by a bad culture and the destruction of the family unit. This is an old enough talking point among conservatives, even conservative blacks, so White didn’t think anything of it.
…until he was attacked by all the vicious PC police in the modern Reformed community. They were appalled that a white man would be presumptuous enough to pass judgment on a poor, misunderstood black boy, who, like Trayvon and all the other cherub-cheaked black children in the US of A, was likely innocent of White’s stereotypes. A white man, it was said, cannot offer commentary on black people because he cannot possibly understand their struggles.
Of course, James White is enough of an anti-white cuckold (he knows enough of the modern Christian song) to realize he stepped wrongly; it’s very likely that, had this unfortunate statement been made by some other theologian, White would join the chorus in attacking the man. But since it’s happening to him, and since he spends most of his time defending himself (instead of defending Christ), he’s lashed out at his critics, demanding that they realize how much of a cuckold he truly is.
“Oh, I’m not racist! In fact, I’m only saying this because I love black people soooo super much! If anyone’s racist, it’s you! My critics! You’re racist for trying to claim black people have a unique and esoteric identity!” ~ Shotgun’s paraphrase of Dr. White’s rhetoric.
All this shows that the modern Reformed movement is clueless about real-world affairs, has no idea how to handle itself in the America of Trump, Trayvon, and Dylann Roof. They’re bumbling children, the lot of them. Without Kinists, these people are doomed to emasculating irrelevancy (John Knox is rolling over in his grave).
On the Kinist view, Dr. White was at least ostensibly right about the boy. If the so-called leaders in the black Reformed community wanted to really be leaders, they’d find the kid (or those like him) and wear his hind-parts out – and afterwards, try catechizing him. They’d realize how destitute the black identity has become, thanks to the jews who run America’s pop-culture, and thanks to the satanic university professors. They’d not only support White’s commentary, but add to it the negro flare for religiosity their people are so good at.
…the leaders in the white Reformed community understand the black boy’s angst against the police vehicle is an outgrowth of his people’s folk narrative, a narrative of hatred for all things antique European. In a way, that police car does represent the law-like customs of old Anglo-Saxon Europe and the black boy’s instincts cry out against it. In fact, he gains standing and respect among his people for openly and brazenly defying that old Christian order.
If White really wants to be an apologist for Christendom, let him start by recognizing outright this hostility and for God’s sake, not prostrating himself before it after doing so.
But he wont, readers. You know it and I know it. If he survives this scandal (and he probably will), he’ll change his tune. The next time you hear James White comment on a racial issue, it’ll be par-for-the-politically-correct-course, and he’ll not deviate one inch. He’ll sing the new song.
Kinists, however, will not.
