Last time I used three verses to determine whether White Privilege is wisdom. This time let’s focus on Matthew 11:19(NKJV): “But wisdom is justified by her children”, which means wisdom is known by what it produces.
In my last tidbit I began examining the fruit produced by The National Museum of African American History and Culture’ (NMAAHC). Please see the attachment. I covered their first three items in my last tidbit. Let’s look at their point 4.
4.“History”. The NMAAHC accuses America of “Whiteness”* because our history is: “based upon Northern European immigrant experience; focus on the British Empire; and the primacy of Western tradition and the Judaeo-Christian ethic.” (see attachment)
I see at least 3 errors/deceptions in their statement:
I.First, the NMAAHC’s claim that because White people from Britain arrived on America’s shores with the intent of planting a settlement; and because they were also White Christians, who held to a Judaeo-Christian ethic assumes their Judaeo-Christian ethic, and Protestant ethic…‘IS’… “Whiteness”!! Remember, the NMAAHC defines “Whiteness” as: “a White dominant culture, or Whiteness, refers to ways of White people and their traditions…” In other words, they believe the Judaeo-Christian ethic, and a Protestant ethic, are “ways” and “traditions” of Whiteness!
The first problem with this logic is that ‘Whiteness’ is a skin color, and skin colors have no “ways” and “traditions”! In other words, skin color is not an action, a way, or a tradition…it simply exists. At its foundation, the skin color of ‘Whiteness’ is no different than the skin colors of Black, Brown, Yellow, or Red, which are all God-created, differing only in the amount of the chemical melanin. On the contrary, one purpose of God for melanin is beauty…not “ways” or “traditions”!
However, this first deception comes into focus when we understand that the NMAAHC’s objective is to substitute the ‘actions’ of the Judaeo-Christian ethic for melanin, i.e. skin tone, which they identify as ‘Whiteness’! The confirmation of my position is that if it were true that the Judaeo-Christian ethic “IS” ‘Whiteness’, how is it that Black, Brown, Yellow, and Red people also practice the Judaeo-Christian ethic? All over the world, people from every color are Christians and Jews, i.e. practice the Judaeo/Christian ethic…not just White people! I repeat, the Judaeo/Christian ethic has been practiced by every skin color in the history of the world!
II.The second deception is liberal racism. As any blind man can see, the foundation for NMAAHC’s position on ‘History’ is “Whiteness”, by which they really mean skin color, which they use to refer to “White people”! In other words, their thinking is simply defined as liberal racism. What does that mean? In other words, to make their point on ‘History’, they must use the “Whiteness” (skin color) of the British Christians who came to Jamestown and Plymouth Rock. Therefore, because they believe WP is bad, and because it is “Whiteness” that makes WP bad, and because “Whiteness” equals skin color, and because the British Christians were “White”, NMAAHC is forced to conclude that the British Christians are bad because of their “Whiteness”(skin color)!!! In other words, the NMAAHC statement is liberal racism, which in this particular situation means the “Northern European immigrant experience; focus on the British Empire; and the primacy of Western tradition and the Judaeo-Christian ethic” is bad because the people who perpetrated these three things are White people! But wait just-a-minute!!!! Is this not pre-judgment, i.e. prejudice based upon race, i.e.Whiteness, i.e.White people? Is this not the very definition of racism?!!?!?? Of course it is!
Yet, in today’s culture, it is also known as liberal racism.
III.The third deception is the obvious NMAAHC disgust for the Judaeo/Christian ethic. Their terminology: “the primacy of Western tradition and the Judaeo-Christian ethic” is a clear, bold, statement linking the Judaeo/Christian ethic with ‘Whiteness’; which if you are still unclear is what they believe to be “THE” foundation for White Privilege!! Remember, “Whiteness” is bad, and because they just boldly declared the Judeao/Christian ethic is “Whiteness”, then they have boldly concluded that because “Whiteness” should be rejected, then the Judeao/Christian ethic should be rejected! Incredibly, the NMAAHC, i.e. the national Black museum, just literally attacked the faith of hundreds of millions of Black people…all over the world!
And what is…by far…even more horrifying, is that this sort of deception is so often completely ignored by liberal Black Christians!!! I would not be surprised that many of the people at the NMAAHC are in Black churches all over the Washington D.C. metropolitan area!!! Or what’s worse, the people who drafted this very NMAAHC abominable document will argue they are Christians!! In the latter day, many will depart from the faith(1Tim4:1)!!!!!
Tragically, through the worship of ‘Blackness’, which is every bit as much idolatry as the worship of Molech or Baal, Black liberals simply ignore the fact that a National Black Museum insulted the faith of not only millions of contemporary authentic Black Christians, but just as importantly, the faith of our African-American forefathers and foremothers!*
I mean, are liberal Black Christians unaware that---historically---Black slaves were overwhelmingly Christian? And, that it was the faith of the Black slaves, who stood on God’s deliverance of Israel from Egyptian slavery, in order to cry out to God for their deliverance from slavery? In other words, they used the Word of God, i.e. the Judaeo/Christian ethic!!!!!!
I mean, how do you think Blacks were released from slavery? Do you think it was an accident?!?! Or, maybe Blacks rose-up and conquered the White slave-owners and delivered themselves? Do you have the temerity to believe that the God of “the Judaeo/Christian ethic” had no part in it? Allow me to help, nothing can happen—past, present, or future; either good or evil—without God’s involvement! If something can happen apart from God’s control…He is not Sovereign…and we cannot pray for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In reality, all history is Providential History. What is Providence? It is God sovereignly working in history to bring about His:
i.His good will(Ps119:68)
ii.His judgment on sin (Ps9:8;Ps82:8,Is26:9; Is66:16; Jer25:31;
Charles Kaufman offers a great definition of Providential History, “If you don’t see the divine hand behind the scenes, history becomes an incomprehensible enigma”. Noah Webster declared, “History is God’s providence in human affairs.” And finally, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “History, by apprizing them of the past, will enable them to judge the future.”
By rejecting God, i.e.the Judaeo/Christian ethic…NMAAHC teaches American history is ‘Whiteness’! On the contrary, Providential History, i.e.God’s view of history, teaches that God has blessed America…a blessing that extends to all people, regardless of color—including Black people!
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for
our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the
scriptures might have hope.
Choose you this day whom you will serve… (Josh24:15)!!!
*Why do Black liberals do this? For two reasons:
i.Any organization with the word “Black” in its title is assumed to help Black people.
ii.Therefore, they believe the NMAAHC helps Black people.
On the contrary, because sin blinds, and the worship of Blackness is idolatry, i.e.sin, Black liberals are deceived to believe ‘Blackness’ helps Black people. In reality, only God’s word, i.e.the Judaeo/Christian ethic, sets the captive free(Jn8:31,32)…including Black people!!!
