Christianity Discriminates

This sermon had been taken from Your Heritage, and prepared into a PDF file by Clifton A. Emahiser’s Watchman Teaching Ministries with added critical notes. William Finck has critiqued this sermon at Christogenea in a presentation titled: A Critical Review of Bertrand Comparet’s Christianity Discriminates and We Face the Future

by Pastor Bertrand L. Comparet

Part of the campaign of brainwashing to which the American public is being subjected is a huge and well financed effort to make us believe that all discrimination is bad. Those of us whose memory reaches back 40 years or more, will recall that the ability to discriminate between things of different value or utility, was then recognized as a most essential part of intelligence.  Those too dull to see differences where they exist were considered stupid.  How does it happen that the subsidized press, radio and television commentators now so bitterly denounce all who can discriminate?  They even try to make us believe that discrimination is not Christian!  Since all of the devil's doctrines are now being preached under the false pretense of "Christianity", let us examine the only source from which we can determine God's position on the subject of discrimination.

From beginning to end, the Bible is a book of discrimination, discrimination by God Himself and discrimination which God commanded us to make.  We find the first record of God's discrimination in Genesis 4:3-5, where we read, "And in process of time it came to pass that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.  And Abel also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof.  And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering: but unto Cain and to his offering He had not respect".  What is this?

But that is only the beginning.  In Genesis 5:3-4, it describes Adam's family, yet it mentions by name only one of his children Seth, and barely notices the existence of the others.  Discrimination?  Yes, indeed!  Right on down through verse 31, this chapter notes the existence of each succeeding generation, yet approves only one in each generation by giving his name.

This brings us to Noah.  In Genesis 6:17-18, we find that God discriminated in favor of Noah and his family and against all the other people living in that land.  God saw a difference between them?  Of course he saw a difference.  But today we are told that we must pretend that there is no difference between the races even when we clearly know that this pretense is false.

Follow me on down through Genesis and we find that God discriminated in favor of one and against others in every generation down to Abraham.  Among Abraham's children, God discriminated in favor of Isaac and against Ishmael.  Among Isaac's children, God again favored Jacob over Esau, making Jacob the father of God's people and changing his name to Israel, while Esau and his descendants were cursed with God's indignation forever.  Likewise, God favored Joseph over all his eleven brothers and again God discriminated in favor of the Israelites and against the Egyptians.  "How awful! say our modern liberals.  Why, that is racism!"  Yes, frankly, it is and it is God's own choice at that.  God has certainly lost the "Minority Group" vote but I am grateful to Him for setting an example which we can follow.

Some people have been misled by their churches into the belief that the Old Testament is only a record of God's mistakes and failures.  That God had to abandon all this and make a new start in the New Testament, which changed everything.  No greater falsehood was ever taught.  God was right the first time and all the time.

The Old Testament and the New Testament are perfectly consistent.  There is as much Christianity in the Old Testament as there is in the New Testament.  The New Testament is as much an Israel book as was the Old Testament.

No doubt many of you have heard many preachers say that discrimination is not Christian.  Let's look into this.  Who is the supreme authority on what is Christian?

It cannot be anyone except Jesus Christ Himself.  No one can tell me that Jesus Christ was unChristian.

Fortunately, Jesus Christ never used any of the weasel worded evasions which are considered polite today.  He always fearlessly spoke the exact truth, in words too plain to be mistaken.  All the Gospels record that, among the Jews, Jesus Christ spoke His teachings in parables which they could not understand.  Later, He explained these parables to His disciples in private.  At least three of the Gospels record that Jesus explained to His disciples why He took such pains to keep the Jews from understanding Him.  In Mark 4:11-21, we read, "And He said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing, they may see and not perceive; and hearing, they may hear and not understand: Lest at any time they should be converted and their sins should be forgiven them".  Now that is real discrimination!  How could you make it any stronger?

But that is not all.  Both Matthew 15:22-28 and Mark 7:25-30, record that, when a Canaanite woman asked Jesus Christ to drive the demon out of her daughter, He replied that it was not proper to take the children's bread and cast it to the dogs.  Not until she acknowledged that the children of God, the true Israelites, must first receive His gifts, and through them the Kingdom of God would be brought to the other races. Not until then did He consent to heal her daughter.

Discrimination?  Yes, indeed!  Racism?  Certainly!   But who dares to call Jesus Christ unChristian?  Yes, I think that some of the "liberal" and "Modernist" preachers will actually say this!  But this only shows clearly how much Satanism is falsely masquerading as Christianity today.

But this discrimination becomes even stronger.  In Matthew 7:6, Jesus Christ warns all His followers, "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and rend you."  Certainly everyone knows that Jesus Christ was not so foolish as to think that His disciples were going into the barnyard and start preaching to the four legged animals there.  When He spoke of "dogs" and "swine" He was speaking of the two legged varieties.  DISCRIMINATION BETWEEN RACES?  CERTAINLY!!!  But we haven't had sense enough to believe Him and obey Him.  We have given that which is holy, our Christian religion, unto the dogs in Africa and Asia.  

Today, those missionaries who did not escape in time have been eaten in Africa or are slowly dying in Red Chinese prisons.  The precious pearls which God gave to us, the inventive skill He placed in our minds, the high civilization which enables us to produce great abundance of every useful produce, these we have cast before the swine of the earth.  They now trample under their feet the peaceful prosperity we tried to give them and use our science, our machines, even the surplus food we ship them, as weapons with which to destroy us.

Yes, I know how the minority groups and the mongrelizers are raging against what I am saying.  But it is time that God's truth be told before it is too late.  Jesus Christ warned us to discriminate between races, just as He discriminated.  In His last talk with His disciples, in John 14-17, Jesus Christ said that He would send to them the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, whom the nations of the world order (cosmos) cannot receive because they do not see Him nor know Him.  Jesus said that He prayed only for those who were His and not for the world system.

Jesus Christ knew the folly and falsehood of pretending that all people, all races, are alike or equal.  He knew that every sacrifice of truth on the polluted altar of expediency and politics brings its terrible penalty in national and racial degradation which only their destruction has ever succeeded in cleansing.

All history is a vast junkyard of the wreckage of empires which ignored this lesson and in consequence thereof, perished.  Several times in our past history, we were on this path to destruction and were only saved by the direct intervention of God.  Today, we have allowed corrupt leaders to take us so far into this shadow of death that again, only the promised intervention of God can now save us.  We have His promise to save us if we will get down on our knees and beg for forgiveness and then He will heal our land.  If we will do our part God will keep His promises to Israel.  While yet we can, let us turn back to the word of our God.  Discriminate between that which is good for us and that which is deadly.  That which is our own and that which is alien to ourselves and to our God.
