“But wisdom is justified by her children” -Matt11:19(NKJV), which means
wisdom is known by what it produces.
We have been examining some of the fruit of White Privilege on the fact sheet produced by The National Museum of African American History and Culture’ (NMAAHC). See attachment.
We examined 5 points from their first page, let’s move on to the second page. Here is their 6th point: 6.Religion: a.Christianity is the norm. b.Anything other than the Judaeo-Christian tradition is foreign. c.No tolerance for deviation from the single god concept.
6.You read that right…the NMAAHC’s 6th point of evidence for ‘Whiteness’, which is used to prove White Privilege….is Christianity! I repeat, a Black museum celebrating African-American History and Culture declares that Christianity is ‘Whiteness’ and therefore should be rejected because it contributes to White Privilege!!!!!!!!
Volumes could be written to refute this absolutely insane NMAAHC point, but I will offer just a few points. Let’s begin with Black figures of American history.
Frederick Douglass (1817?-1895). On his conversion to Christ: “"I loved all mankind, slaveholder not excepted, though I abhorred slavery more than ever. I saw the world in a new light...” Mr Douglas was a preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the Zion African-America Methodist church!
Harriet Tubman (1822?-1913). After leading between 70 slaves from slavery, "Twant me, 'twas the Lord. I always told him, ‘I trust in you. I don't know where to go or what to do, but I expect you to lead me,’ and He always did."
George Washington Carver (1864?-1943)."Keep your hand in that of the Master, walk daily by His side, so that you may lead others into the realms of true happiness, where a religion of hate, (which poisons both body and soul) will be unknown, having in its place the 'Golden Rule' way, which is the 'Jesus Way' of life, will reign supreme."
Booker T. Washington (1856-1915)
"The men doing the vital things of life are those who read the Bible and are Christians and not ashamed to let the world know it...No man can read the Bible and be lazy."
Sojourner Truth 1797-1883
"I set up my banner, and then I sing, and then folks always comes up 'round me, and then...I tells them about Jesus."
I could mention William Still, Harriet Jacobs, William Harvey Carney, John Roy Lynch, James Forten, Richard Allen, Harry Hoosier, Jerena Lee, William and Ellyn Craft…among literally millions of other Black Americans of history!!
I could also include hundreds of millions of Blacks in our contemporary times from all over Africa, America, the West Indies, and South American countries…who are Christians!!! Is the Christianity of millions of Black people ‘Whiteness’!?!?!? Or White Privilege’?
Let’s move on to American history. The reason the NMAAHC can declare: “Christianity is the norm”, and use it as the evidence for ‘Whiteness’ or ‘WP’, is because they are obviously ignorant of American history!!! For example, beginning at Jamestown in 1607 and Plymouth Rock in 1620, both groups boldly declare ‘why’ they came to America: The Great Commission (Mat28:18-20)! In other words, America was birthed as a missionary Nation to win the Indians to Christ, i.e.evangelism:
Virginia Charter (1606):Colony’s objective: “propagating of the Christian religion to such people as yet live in darkness and miserable ignorance of the true knowledge and worship of God.”
Mayflower Compact (1620): “In the Name of God, Amen!” “…for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian Faith.”

Here are quotes from just 4 American presidents, although every president has claimed Christianity (including African-American President Barak Obama):
Engraved on George Washington's tomb at Mount Vernon."I am the Resurrection and the Life; sayeth the Lord. He that believeth in Me, though he were dead yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die."
---“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity” -President John Adams
---“America was born in a Revival of Religion – and back of it were John Wesley and George Whitefield.” – President Calvin Coolidge.
---“When I left Springfield [to assume the Presidency], I asked the people to pray for me. I was not a Christian. When I buried my son, the severest trial of my life, I was not a Christian. But when I went to Gettysburg and saw the graves of thousands of our soldiers, I then and there consecrated myself to Christ.” -President Abraham Lincoln
The 55 delegates who wrote the U.S. Constitution belonged to the following denominations: 26 Episcopalian; 11 Presbyterian; 7 Congregationalist; 2 Lutheran; 2 Dutch Reformed; 2 Methodist; 2 Quaker; 2 Roman Catholics.
State Constitutions (every state constitution is similar to these):
--PENNSYLVANIA, the 2nd State to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1776 State Constitution, signed by Ben Franklin: "Each member, before he takes his seat, shall...subscribe...'I do believe in one GOD, the Creator and Governor of the Universe, the Rewarder of the good and the Punisher of the wicked. And I do acknowledge the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by Divine Inspiration.'"
--NEW JERSEY, the 3rd State to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1776 State Constitution: "All persons, professing a belief in the faith of any PROTESTANT sect, who shall demean themselves peaceably under the government...shall be capable of being elected."
--GEORGIA, the 4th State to ratify the U.S. Constitution, stated in its 1777 State Constitution: "Representatives shall be chosen out of the residents in each county...and they shall be of the PROTESTANT religion."
University of Houston political science professors Donald Lutz and Charles Hyneman in 1985 published a monumental study that took them 10 years to bring together. They amassed over 15,000 items, including 2,200 books, newspaper articles, pamphlets and monographs of political materials written between 1760-1805 and discovered that there were three writers and one book, the constitutional framers quoted from most often:
1) John Locke (1632-1704)- 3%
2) Barron Charles Montesquieu (1689-1755) -8%
3) William Blackstone (1723-80), and -8%
4) Bible- 34%
All three of the previous men were strong Christians, and used the Bible as the foundation for their government philosophy.
In 1854, the U.S. Congress conducted an extensive 1 year investigation. Their final report concluded: “Had the people during the revolution ever had a suspicion of an attempt to war against Christianity that revolution would have been strangled in its cradle. At the time of the adoption of the Constitution and the amendments, the universal sentiment was Christianity should be encouraged, but not any one denomination. In this age, there can be no substitute for Christianity. It was the religion of the founders of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendents.”
US Supreme Court
In 1892, the US Supreme Court conducted a thorough study of American History cited over 60 historical precedents, the court concluded: “There is no dissidence in these declarations. There is a universal language pervading them all having one meaning, they affirm and reaffirm that this is a religious nation. This is a Christian nation.”
Someone please tell the people at NMAAHC—along with every Black and White liberal: Of course “Christianity is the norm” in America! America was birthed from the God of the Bible, i.e.Christianity! Of course, “anything other than the Judaeo-Christian tradition is foreign”: a cursory study of American history reveals that it was Christians who created this nation! Of course, there is “No tolerance for deviation from the single god concept”, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; the God of the Bible--is the only God!!! I repeat, there are no other gods than the God of the Bible!!!!!
10.Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom
I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and
understand that I am he: before me there was no God
formed, neither shall there be after me. 11.I, even I, am the
LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. -Is43:10,11
In conclusion, President Thomas Jefferson said, "No nation has ever existed or been governed without religion. Nor can be." The truth of TJ’s quote originates from the Bible: “For all the gods of the nations are idols…” –Ps96:5. In other words, every nation has a god! However, only those nations whose God is the Lord are blessed. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD…” (Ps33:12)
The reason America has prospered (blessed by God) above any nation in the history of the world…is because we have made the God of the Bible…THE God of this nation! And I repeat, that one and only true God has honored His Word by blessing this nation!!!
Why has the NMAAHC made such statements so easily verifiably false? Idolatry--which has led to their blindness! The foundation of White Privilege is the worship of Blackness!!!
