White Nationalists won’t like Heaven

iStock-Diversity+HandsIf it’s the white nationalist belief that the races should live apart, then they would not like heaven.

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands.  –Revelation 7:9 ESV bold added

Earlier John also writes,

And they sang a new song, saying,

“Worthy are you to take the scroll
    and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
    from every tribe and language and people and nation,
10 and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
    and they shall reign on the earth.” –Revelation 5:9-10 ESV bold added

Simply put, one cannot claim to be a Christ follower and a racist at the same time.  White nationalism is anti-Christ. White nationalism, according to those passages above from the Apostle John, is also anti-heaven.

Therefore, white nationalism is a competing vision that is straight from the Devil’s hell.

Let’s call a spade a spade.

Remind the racist of this gospel truth: Jesus of Nazareth–a Jew–was slaughtered to ransom people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.

And this Jesus is a bridge builder who breaks down walls so that he might create in himself one new humanity, one new community, of all people groups on earth (Ephesians 2:13-18).

Therefore, white supremacy must be CONDEMNED, beginning with that hateful rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
