DUKE'S MUST-SEE VIDEO
By Rev. Ted Pike
5 May 11
David Duke is a staunch evolutionist whose deterministic premises undergird a racialist view of civilization and many of its problems. He posits a largely racial solution to the real and conspiratorial Jewish supremacist efforts to undermine white culture through race mixing, unfettered immigration, and cultural assault. Duke believes that racial differences exist because of different selection pressures on evolving man: harsh northern climes created more intelligent, creative races (whites) while milder, tropical ones produced less intelligent and resourceful ones (blacks).
Duke's evolutionary premises could encourage eugenics policies if someday enthroned in power. Certainly, the Third Reich was founded on similar convictions of evolution-engendered racial superiority.
Duke scorns the Old Testament as largely the twisted, even homicidal tribalism of a mis-evolved race. He says he is a Christian but he does not accept the Genesis record of creation, divine inspiration of the Old Testament, or the providentially orchestrated role the Hebrews played in preparing the way for Jesus, the Messiah. Thus he has no confidence in the wealth of specific Old Testament predictions that Christ will one day redeem a repentant remnant out of Israel at His second coming.
In his latest video, "The Insanity of Christian Zionism," Duke attempts to reason evangelical Christians away from their love affair with Zionism. One would think his rejection of main Christian tenets would render Duke ill equipped to credibly instruct evangelicals. Yet in this video Duke powerfully exposes the anti-Christianity and atrocities of Israel, not just against Arab Muslims but also against very large numbers of Arab Christians.
Much as I disagree with Duke's evolutionary and racialist premises, I completely agree with his expose of the madness that is Christian Zionism. His video should be required viewing not only for enlightened anti-Zionists but all, left or right, who grope beneath a dark cloud of Zionist-induced darkness.
Duke teaches that we should respond to other races with love and appreciation of their unique qualities, even though they may be inferior to whites. Unfortunately, as Duke has spent a lifetime promoting the hard line southern racism which virtually dehumanizes blacks, it is difficult to accept his claim to love and appreciate blacks and their culture.
How could Duke convince me that he is now as reformed and generous as he claims to be? If Duke is really a Christian believer, then we must hear from him convincing declarations of the unity in Jesus which should exist between whites and blacks. If he is a Christian, he should begin preaching the most fundamental truth of Christianity: that every human being is absolutely equal in God's sight, equally loved, equally full of potential for eternal life with the God Who created them. This is not frosting on a theory of mindless human origins which makes some winners, others losers. Such genuine love that is beyond reproach is the first principle of the Old Testament that Duke scorns.
Jesus summarized the Mosaic law: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'" (Matt. 22:37-39)
