I Thessalonians 5:20, 21

Do not despise expounding of scripture, but scrutinize all things. Hold fast that which is right.

Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

- I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

Why No Moffatt or Fenton Translations?

The James Moffat and the Ferrar Fenton translations of the bible, out of the dozens available, quite often most accurately translate the meaning of the text as found in the original languages, the Hebrew and the Greek. However, neither are ever included in any of the websites (that I am aware of) that provide multiply translations.

There is the 21st Century King James Version, the Complete English Bible, Contemporary English Version, Easy-to-Read Version, Living Bible, Good News Version, etc., all meant, in my view, to teach the reader universalism and that the jews are "Gods' Chosen." (How long before there is a Fornicator's Bible made available?)

To confirm this fact for yourself, simple go to Biblegateway.com which has 45 English translations of the bible, some with several editions or the BlueLetterBible.org site with 18 English translations, but neither site has the Moffat or the Fenton.

Could it be that someone reading / studying either the Moffat or Fenton translation just might begin to understand that the jews are not "God's Chosen?" That "judeo-christianity" is an oxymoron?

That the 12 Tribes of Israel are the kinsmen who the Kinsman Redeemer redeemed?

And God forbid! that the Anglo-Saxon-Scandinavian-Celtic-Germanic and kindred peoples are the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel? And that it was these very peoples, the lost sheep of the house of Israel, and not the Chinese, or the Koreans, or the Aborigines of Australia, that Paul and the other apostles were sent to share the gospel with, that is, the good news that the Kinsman Redeemer had come to fulfill the promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel and to them alone?

The Last Shall Be First

My experience has been that no matter how friendly I am, no matter how circumspect I am with presenting aspects of my Waltenschauung with others, if there is no almost immediate agreement, they are the party to separate, to exclude or cut off their communication. [separate: aphorizo - to set off by boundary, limit, exclude]

Speak is a verb, an action word. I am commanded to "speak (what you believe to be) the truth with love." Ephesians 4:15 For simply doing what we are commanded to do, (see verses 11-14) there is erected, by them, a boundary between us.

For this we should be glad.

"Blessed are you when men hate you and when they separate from you and they reproach and they cast out your name as evil because of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy; for, behold your reward is great in heaven; for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets."

This response is nothing new. The prophets were separated from - and stone - since the beginning. This response is in fact, quite common. And to be expected.

Repent ( metanoeĆ³) is also a verb meaning to "re-think." Few there are who are willing to re-think their thinking, rethink their understanding, change their mind and to turn in another direction once they realize they were in error. What matters is: are we are doing our will, what we think we should be doing, or the will of our Father, which is in heaven?

Rewards are not handed out to everyone who believes they deserve one: but to those who do the Father's will. 2
1 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7)

These people think they are doing "many wonderful works," when in fact, they are "workers of iniquity." "The first shall be last, and the last shall be first."

Those who we least expect may just be those who rise to the top step in "that day."

Whose Nation Are These United States, Anyway?

This missive is written with the experiences of having lived outside of these United States for almost 13 years.

I’ve lived in four different countries and traveled in over 25.

For several months I was the manager of the largest hotel on Corn Island, Nicaragua, on the Caribbean Sea. While there I worked with the Mestizo / Caribbean blacks and dealt every day with the native Nicaraguans and travelers from all over the world.

I lived six years in Thailand, working with the most educated Thai people.

I lived and worked in Qatar for several months, interacting with Muslims from Iran, South Africa, Iraq, the UAE and many other parts of the world.

I lived five years in South Korea working with the most educated Koreans.

I didn’t just vacation in these countries, enjoying the best these nations had to offer. I lived and experienced day-to-day life living in a foreign culture, among non-Caucasians who do not think, act or believe like Caucasians think, act or believe.

In my 13 years abroad, I learned – contrary to what I had been led to believe – non-Caucasians are not like me. I learned that diversity was not a strength.

I have nothing against those people.

Do you know what? Wanting to live with and be around your own people – your own kind - I learned - is normal. Kind after kind.

While living abroad, I noticed something – people tend to congregate with their own kind. Caucasians would associate with fellow Caucasians and Asians with fellow Asians. Kind after kind.

Again, people wanting to be around their own kind, I came to realize, is normal.

Never once did I hear the Koreans say: “Gee, we just don’t have enough non-Koreans here, not enough Filipinos, not enough Indonesian, not enough Japanese. We need to allow more non-Koreans in. After all, diversity is our strength.”

Which brings us to the question: Whose Nation Are These United States, Anyway?

The answer, I believe, is found in the

Preamble - U.S. Constitution

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Posterity means – from one progeny; from one common ancestry.

Our Northern European ancestors were willing to lay down their lives to give us what became the greatest nation in man’s history.

Sadly, we are losing it, without a whimper.

We can see from the Ted Kennedy quote below that there was concern that the ethnic mix of our country would change if the 1965 Immigration Act passed.

"First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same.... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset.... Contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia.... In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think." Ted Kennedy, chief Senate sponsor of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.[28] (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 1–3.)

Despite what traitor Ted had to say,

Since 1965 our cities have been flooded with millions of non-Caucasian immigrants annually.
Since 1965 the level of immigration has changed substantially.
Since 1965, the ethnic mix of our country has been upset.
Since 1965, America has been inundated with immigrants from the most populated and deprived nations of Africa, Asia and Central America.

At current immigration levels, our children and their children will be minorities in our own nation by 2050.

Some of you may be thinking: “Oh, it’s racist to think like you do.”

I understand that thinking.

We Caucasians, worldwide, have been programmed to think that way. That is why we Caucasians stand by and do nothing while our nations – Germany, France, Sweden, the UK - are invaded by non-Caucasians.

Quite often, living outside the US was not easy. I’ve learned my lesson the hard way.

I’m here to tell you what I learned:

Being “racist” is normal. To want to be around your own people is normal.

To want to preserve your country for your own kind, is normal. Kind after kind.

Most non-Caucasians preserve their nations, their way of life, for their own people. To do so is normal.

For me, the answer to the question, Whose nation are these United States, anyway?

Is - it is our nation.

Despite what we have been led to believe, it is normal - it is natural - to want to keep it that way.


Latin "Gentile" or Greek "Nation?"

Shortly after relocating to a new town, I discovered a local 6 a.m. Saturday morning bible study. The small gathering was led by a man who also led a prison ministry some four hours drive away. He was quick to let me know that in the 18 years he had been leading the prison ministry and driving to and fro all those years, that he never had to cancel a meeting because of illness, car trouble or weather. Obviously, God had been guiding and overseeing that ministry all those years, right?

During the third meeting of this study group composed mostly of elderly men, we were looking at 2 Timothy 1. As is my lifelong custom, I was prepared for the study by having studied the passage in the week leading up to the gathering. One of the other members initiated the early morning discussion by relating how he had picked up a woman he saw walking on the side of the road. He discovered she was on the way to the pharmacy to purchase medicine for her child. The problem was, she didn't have the money and didn't yet know how she was going to pay for what she needed to help alleviate her child's ailment. The man, with watery eyes, went on telling his story of how the Lord used this women's faith to reach his conscience. He related how the Lord moved him, despite his own the lack of funds, to supply her needs.

With that as the take-of point, the leader of the group went on for several minutes praising this bible study member for using his gifts of mercy and giving to help another. He brought us to the well known passages in I Corinthians 12; how we all have differing gifts, and even if we are only the little finger on one hand, God can and will use us to meet the needs of other members of the body of Christ.

We then moved on to read and discuss 2 Timothy 1. When we reached verse 11: "Unto which I am appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher of the Gentiles," I asked, being the newest member of the group not wanting to impose, if I could comment? The bible study and prison ministry leader spoke up and said, "Sure, we encourage participation. What do you have to contribute?" I said that the word Gentile is a Latin word and should not be in the verse, or any other verse in the New Testament. The Greek word used by Paul here was ethnos, and means nation, and should be translated nations, not Gentile, which has come to mean "non-jew."

Saying those words was like I had passed the worst gas imaginable. No, it was worse than that, I had committed blasphemy; I had questioned the King James Version of the bible, which I was soon to be told, in no uncertain terms, was THE inspired word of God. How dare I suggest that there was an error in the translation that has brought salvation to so many millions of Christians down through the ages?

I went on to explain, which I knew, from many similar experiences, was going to be a futile attempt, that a misunderstanding of the word ethnos, as Gentile, and not nation or nations, would lead the bible student to numerous errors of interpretation, errors that would cause nothing but confusion in trying to understand what Scripture teaches concerning who Paul is trying to reach when he uses the word ethnos. He is not talking about non-jews, he is talking about fellow Israelites.

Boy, did that set off the fireworks of indignation. The leader starting defending the authorized King James Version as being used by God to save countless souls for hundreds of years. He even raised his KJV translation in his left hand and declared: THIS is the inspired word of God! "The original Hebrew and Greek scriptures are the inspired word of God, not the multitude of translations," I replied. "Were those tablets Moses took down the mountain written in the KFV?

More indignation, this time from the man who had the gift of mercy and compassion not more than ten minutes earlier. He spoke up, his anger barely contained. "You're pissing me off, and you don't want to piss me off," he said, as he rose from his chair and walked away from the table to cool off.

I then said to the rest of the group, "No more than 10 minutes ago you all were going on about how we each have a gift or gifts to be used for the edification of others. I've been told by many I have the gift of teaching. I'm simply exercising my gift when I tell you that the Latin word Gentile should not be used in an English translation of the bible because it causes confusion, even deception. How is it that the gift of mercy is quite acceptable, and is encouraged to be used for the benefit of the rest of the body, but the gift of teaching is not to be used and the teaching is not to be accepted? You haven't disagreed that the word Gentile is Latin, and the original is ethnos, which means nation. So, what is the problem?"

The "leader" then asked, "What does this have to do with the saving of souls for Christ?"

I said, "Once one understands who Paul is speaking to, and who the gospel is for, it makes all the difference in the kingdom."

The leader then raised his KJV of the bible into the air and proclaimed with a loud voice: "THIS IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD! It has been used by God to save millions of souls, including mine and everyone here in this room."

By this time, I had made my point. By this time I knew I would be wasting time and my breath. I closed my bible, which just happens to be a Scofield Reference Bible, by which I had been deceived by for most of my life, told the group good morning, and walked out.

No doubt I had created quite a stir, upsetting that group of righteous Judeo-Christians who then most likely spent the rest of the meeting despising me and what I had to say. Luke 23:11.

The saddest aspect of this episode is that this same scene could be repeated in Judeo-Christian-zionist congregations in all white nations today. No one caring that they are being deceived. No one questioning the status quo. No one daring to think other than what most of their small group of narrow-minded brainwashed fellow pew-sitters think, as they sit listening week after week to flat stone teaching. No one reflecting on what was just said and asking themselves "Gee, what if he is right? What if God sent that man to our little group to wake us up and we didn't listen?"

"He that hath an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." Revelation 3:22 KJV

Note: Some readers may be asking How is translating ethnos as Gentiles rather than nations causing confusion? The reason is most Judeo-Christians, an oxymoron, believe Christ came to save the jews not non-jews, i.e., the Gentiles. The reality is, in Christ's own words, "I have not come but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." The house of Israel are the descendants of the 12 Tribes of Israel, not to be confused with jews. The 12 Tribes were and are the Anglo-Saxon-Scandinavian-Celtic-Germanic and kindred peoples. These tribes were scattered about the known world during the time of the apostles. The White race was the scattered "strangers of I Peter 1, the elect race of I Peter 2:9 and the twelve tribes scattered abroad of James 1:1.

The Blue Letter Bible has even gone so far, to continue the deception, to alter the meanings used in the online version of Strong's Concordance. Many many instances can be found where additional meanings have been added to Strong's Lexicon. Don't confuse the jew who reside in Palestine today with the Israelites of the Old and New Covenants.
