The Titanic sinks, April 15,1912.

For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the LORD his God, as was the heart of his father David.

  • 1 Kings 11:4

Just yesterday, I watched a video – confession, I binge watched several videos – about the sinking of the Titanic.  It’s remarkable after well over a century – this April will mark the 109th anniversary of the sinking of the great ocean liner – the fame of the ship and of its disastrous end show no sign of abating.  Doubtless, it’s the most famous maritime disaster ever. 

Some years ago, I listened to a classroom lecture by Gordon Clark, dating, if I recall correctly, from sometime in the 1950’s.  Clark, remarking on the youth of his students, commented that they hadn’t even been born at the time the Titanic sank. Clark himself was a few months shy of his 10th birthday when Titanic went down in the icy waters of the north Atlantic on that fateful morning of April 15, 1912.       

Shipwrecks have always had a certain fascination for me.  Were you to press me for why that is, I suppose I would have to answer that it’s not so much the shipwreck itself that I find fascinating, but the reaction of the people involved in it.  Life and death situations have a way of revealing the true character of those on board.  And shipwrecks, because they tend to play out over longer periods of time than some other types of disasters, give greater opportunity for the faith, bravery, good judgment, foolishness, and cowardice of people to show themselves.

One of the Titanic videos I watched was titled “Titanic History/What caused the Titanic to Break Up?” Years ago, when I first heard about the Titanic, no one talked about the ship splitting in two.  Maybe this was something known to those who studied the disaster closely, I don’t know.  But for decades, it was not generally known to the public that, before sinking, the ship split in two. . 

One of the points that the presenter made in the video was that, although the breakup came suddenly and visibly, there was a lot happening to the structure of the ship on the inside as it went down.  It was these unseen stresses on the ship’s structure ultimately resulted in the breakup, even if the forces at work were not obvious to onlookers before it happened. 

In reflecting on this idea – the notion that powerful, unseen forces can be at work for some time before producing very visible results – it’s easy to see how it can have a wider application.  In this case, I’m thinking how unseen, yet powerful forces can put stresses on the structure of a nation for years, decades, maybe even longer, prior to their resulting in a major and visible catastrophe of some sort.

Take the nation of Israel, for example.  The kingdom hit its peak under the Solomon.  But even while Israel was at the height of its wealth and power, forces were at work which would split the nation shortly after Solomon’s death. 

Solomon’s policy of forced labor and heavy taxation to pay for his public works projects was very much resented by the people.  He also split the nation into administrative districts that paid little heed to traditional tribal boundaries.  There was the longstanding north-south rivalry that, while remaining subdued during the reigns of David and Solomon, nevertheless was present and which would reassert itself under Solomon’s successor Rehoboam.

There was a fourth, and most important, factor in the breakup of Israel after the reign of Solomon: idolatry.  In 1 Kings 11 we read,

But King Solomon loved many foreign women, as well as the daughter of Pharaoh: women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites – from the nations of whom the LORD had said to the children of Israel, “You shall not intermarry with them, nor they with you.  Surely they will turn away your hearts after their gods.”  Solomon clung to these in love.  And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his wives turned away his heart.  For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the LORD his God, as was the heart of his father David.

As a result of Solomon’s sin, his lack of faith in the Lord and his turning to idols, God told him that he would tear the kingdom from him.   

Scripture doesn’t record for us what the Israelite public thought of Solomon’s idolatry.  If I were forced to conjecture what the public’s attitude was toward Solomon as his idolatry become more and more obvious, it seems to me that most people probably paid it little heed.  There was no public outcry against it that I am aware of noted in Scripture.  This is not surprising.  After all, Israel’s prospects had never looked brighter in the 500 or so years since Joshua had led them into the promised land.  The nation was numerous, economically prosperous, and militarily powerful.  It must has looked to most Israelites as if the future was even brighter.  And if there was a little idolatry going on in high places, well, no one is perfect. 

Let’s fast forward to our own time.  Do any of the lessons from Titanic or Israel – hidden forces at work for a period of time which result in big, visible breakups – apply to America? The answer, I think, is yes.

Our nation traces its roots to Puritan settlers from England in the 17th century.  Although at the time of the American Revolution, the colonists were remarkably homogenous – 98% of the population was Protestant – there were still significant divisions present.  The most obvious of these was – in an interesting recapitulation of the fault lines found in ancient Israel – the north/south split over slavery. 

In the 19th century, the homogeneity of the nation began to change as waves of Roman Catholic, Eastern European and Jewish immigrants brought large numbers of people to America that did not share the history, religion or political and economic beliefs with the old-stock American’s descended from the nation’s founders.  The 20th and 21st century have seen the growth in the Muslim population in America.  As was the case with the Catholic and Jewish immigration in the 19th century, Muslim immigrants brought with them a religion with a philosophy of politics and economics that was at odds with a free constitutional republic.  It’s not that Roman Catholics, Jews Muslims – and, to be fair, one must add Orthodoxists – are inferior people, but their ideas are inferior and incompatible with republican government.  

In today’s world where diversity is become the pearl of great price and more to be prized that all other virtues, any suggestion that diversity may not automatically be a strength, but can, in fact, prove to be a weakness, is dismissed as unacceptable.  But look at Solomon’s wives.  They were a diverse lot, but they were not a source of strength, but rather one of weakness.  His Moabite, Hittite, Edomite and Egyptian wives “turned his heart after other gods,” the major factor in the breakup of the United Kingdom.    

At the same time waves of non-Protestant immigration was taking place, American Protestantism itself was succumbing to the forces of irrationalism, liberalism and feminism.  Had American Protestants remained true to the faith of their forefathers, perhaps they could have served as counterbalance to the increasing religious and ethnic diversity in American and kept the nation on an even keel. 

But just as Solomon’s unfaithfulness allowed once hidden divisions within Israel to rise to the surface after his death, so too has the faithlessness of American Protestants led the collapse of any basis for national unity in the United States. We’re no longer so much a nation with a shared history and set of beliefs as we are a warring mob of people that happen to live in the same geographical vicinity to one another.  In the Year of Our Lord 2021, it appears to this observer that the rule of law in America is, if not fully dead, very nearly so and that there is nothing to stop its ultimate demise. If and when that day comes, can America be long for this world?  Jesus said that a kingdom divided against itself will not stand.  If true, and it is, how can America survive?

Earlier I mentioned that what I find most compelling about shipwrecks is that they provide opportunity for people to reveal their true character.  On Titanic there were heroes and cowards.  Not often mentioned were the brave stokers and engineers who stayed at their posts in the bowels of the ship long after it was obvious that Titanic was going down.  Their actions helped keep the ship’s power on and wireless going to the very end. There were cowards, too.  One man dressed as a woman to secure a place on lifeboat he otherwise would not have been able to board.       

Faith was found among Titanic’s passengers as well. Well known is the account of the ship’s orchestra playing “Nearer My God to Thee.”  Then there’s the less well-known but very compelling account of Scottish evangelist John Harper, who preached the Gospel to his final convert just before drowning in the Atlantic’s icy waters.   

The metaphor “ship of state” dates all the way back to Plato’s Republic, and is certainly an apt turn of phrase for this post. Just as ships are large and powerful objects that require a steady hand to steer them, so to do states.  After a large disaster in either case, there can be a lot of second guessing of the people in charge.  You can play the “what if” game with Titanic just as you can with America. 

What if Titanic’s designers had extended the watertight compartments a deck or two higher?, what if the ship wasn’t traveling at top speed?, what if the lookouts had spotted the iceberg 30 seconds sooner?, what if the iceberg hadn’t just nicked the six and final compartment? 

What if slavery had never been established in the colonies?, what if American Protestants had not abandoned the Calvinism of their colonial forefathers?, what if America had a wiser immigration policy in the 19th and 20th centuries?

We can play “what if” all we want, but obviously none of that is going to change either the fate of the Titanic or the present reality of our nation. 

As did Titanic, America is taking on water, and fast.  As Christians, how do we respond?  Do we ignore what’s going on around us and seek to rearrange the deck chairs?  Do we panic?  Do we play the coward hoping to survive through dishonest means?  No to all that.  What we do is what we’re called to do, to walk in our present circumstances in a manner worthy of the Lord.  And what does that look like?  Read what the Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.”

That’s our job. Yours and mine.

The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower.  He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

  • Deuteronomy 28:43, 44

Just a few hours before the Capitol Hill riot captured the world’s attention on January 6, Washington Post political reporter Dave Weigel tweeted out, “Protestants locked out of the top offices for the first time ever (president, chief justice, speaker of the house, [Senate] majority leader).”

Of the offices he referred to in his tweet, three – President, Chief Justice, and Speaker of the House – are held by Roman Catholics. Senate Majority Leader, Charles Schumer, is Jewish.

Jesse Curtis, whose Twitter bio states he is a historian of race and religion and is starting a job as Assistant Professor of History at Valpariso University in the fall of 2021, retweeted Weigel’s tweet, commenting on it, “The decline of Protestant supremacy (both as fact and ideology) is really something.  Less than a century ago this would have been front page news and major social tension.  Now it’s just quaint trivia.”

Another tweet by Sean Penn – yes, the actor – from 2/12/2021 reads, “Evangelical leaders should themselves be impeached by the Vatican if they themselves don’t follow Nikki Haley’s – The Monstrous Regiment (R-SC) – lead & clearly state they should not have followed Satin (sic) – this is a reference to Donald Trump – into the bowels of hell. But, perhaps they are too busy at sex parties.”

Now one could dismiss this as just another silly tweet from a confused Hollywood dweller.  But a response to Penn’s tweet caught my attention.  “thank you”, it began. “people often don’t like to acknowledge that the one holy roman catholic apostolic church has authority over the protestants so i’m glad you’re speaking out on this critical issue.”  That response was sent by Elizabeth Bruening, whose Twitter bio indicates she’s an “Opinion writer at @nytimes.”  That is to say, she is someone with journalistic and cultural clout.  Bruening also retweeted Penn’s tweet with the comment “absolutely.”

Luther at the Diet of Worms, by Anton von Werner, 1877.

There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a might man is not delivered by much strength.

  • Psalm 33:16

Watching the news.  It’s hard to do these days.

I admit to following day to day events, politics, economics, and the like.  It’s too much a part of me not to do so. 

But it really isn’t a very enjoyable experience. 

There’s simply no good news.  Or at least many days it doesn’t seem like it.

As a reformed believer, I know well that God has decreed all things, whatsoever comes to pass.  He doesn’t merely know in advance what’s going to take place, or passively allow it to happen.  He actively brings about the events that occur, both in our own lives and on the scale of nations and of the world. 

As much as I don’t like it, God decreed from all eternity that Joseph Robinette Biden would be inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States on January 20, 2021.  And his purposes in doing so are his own glory and the good of his people.    

But even though a Biden presidency is for our ultimate good as Christians, this does not mean that it is going to be a pleasant experience. 

Scripture does not teach a foolish optimism where we’re expected to treat disasters as if they were manna from heaven.  It’s okay to call a disaster a disaster an mourn over it.  As the Author of Hebrews tells us, “Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful.” 

Jeremiah wept at the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians.  Jesus wept at the tomb of Lazarus.  If it was not wrong for them to grieve, it is not wrong for us to grieve the enormous disaster that has befallen our nation.

And yet, there comes a time when grieving must end, and work must begin.  We, all of us, have suffered difficulty and disappointment in our lives.  There is a time for grieving, and a time to cease grieving. 

Joe Biden is in a position to do a lot of damage to this nation.  As Christians, we have a responsibility to speak out against his evil policies, to refute them from the Word of God and, if possible, to prevent them from being enacted.  We have a responsibility to preach the Gospel of Christ, that perhaps some who don’t know him may hear and be saved.  We have a responsibility to protect and provide for our families, both our natural family and our brothers and sisters in Christ. 

How do we do this?  Do we look to ourselves, to our inner strength?  As the hymn goes, the arm of flesh will fail you, you dare not trust your own.

No.  It is to Christ we must look if we are going to find the knowledge, wisdom, and strength to not just to survive, but to triumph in these dark times. 

This brings me to the lesson from Luther which I’d like to discuss. 

As we did in last week’s post, this week we’ll be referring to Luther’s treatise “To the Christian Nobility of the German Nation.”

Luther at the Diet of Worms, by Anton von Werner, 1877.

And it cast down truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

  • Daniel 8:12

Truth is cast to the ground. 

I’ve thought about that quite a lot in recent years.  It seems as if the lie always prospers, while truth, it if even is heard at all, is quickly dismissed as nonsense and those who speak it as fools or worse. 

I was reminded once again of just how corrupt things have become after watching some of the shenanigans in the stock market last week with the big dust up over the Gamestop stock and how, supposedly, a group of small investors beat the big guys on Wall Street. 

I’ll not dive into the details of what took place, but on the surface we can say that at least one major hedge fund sustained significant losses when its short position on Gamestock was blown up by investors piling into the company’s stock and driving it to over $400 per share. 

For our purposes, what important to understand is that when an investor – either an individual or an institution such as a hedge fund – short sells a stock, he profits when the price goes down.  If the price goes up, the short seller loses money.  If the stock price goes way up, as was the case with Gamestop, the short seller loses a lot of money. 

When the losses were piling up for the big guys during the week, it didn’t take long for the weeping and gnashing of teeth to begin.  Billionaire hedge fund manager Leon Cooperman went on an epic rant on CNBC last Thursday, 1/28, saying, “The reason the market is doing what it’s doing is people are sitting at home getting checks from the government. This fair share, is a (bleep) concept.  It’s just a way of attacking wealthy people and I think it inappropriate and we all gotta work together and pull together.” 

Just how true is the narrative that a bunch of unemployed Robin Hood traders on their own drove up the price of Gamestop, thus inflicting heavy losses on some hedge funds, I cannot say for sure.  I have my doubts that things are what we’re being told, but, at the very least, Cooperman seemed to accept that narrative when he went on his rant last week.

The Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel, 1563.

Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.

  • Genesis 11:6

He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him.

  • Acts 17:26-27

Among the besetting sins of the 21st century American Protestantism is its propensity to form ungodly pacts with unbelievers.  It amounts to a return to the failed policy of Israel, which, when the going got tough, often resorted to going down to Egypt to seek Pharaoh’s help when they instead should have sought the Lord.

The close, and seemingly every closer, ties between mainstream Evangelicalism and Roman Catholicism one again were brought to mind this week by Joe Biden’s executive order blitz and the similar reaction to them from both the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT).  The reaction to Biden’s executive orders on immigration from the USCCB and the ersatz Evangelicals at EIT was so similar that one could be forgiven for thinking they were penned by the same person.

EIT is just one example of the evil fruit of neo-evangelicalism, a movement that was developed in the years following WWII by Carl F. H. Henry and other leaders, who, as John Robbins noted, “had such a horror of separation that they had to separate from the separationists [the fundamentalists].”

One of the landmark texts produced by the neo-evangelicals is an ecumenical document dating from 1994 and co-signed by Charles Colson and John Neuhaus, with Colson representing the Evangelicals and Neuhaus the Catholics.

A book titled Evangelicals & Catholics Together: Toward A Common Mission (ECT) was issued the following year edited by Colson and Neuhaus.  The main argument of this evil book was that Evangelicals and Catholics, while they had their differences, in the end really are brothers in Christ and, for this reason, ought to cooperate toward the common goal of uniting Christians “that they may be all be one.” 

Of course, for Evangelicals and Catholics to be one requires the prior understanding that both Evangelicals and Roman Catholics believe the same things are Christians.  Now it may well be true that Southern Baptist Chuck Colson believed the same things as Richard Neuhaus, but this would simply prove that Colson himself was not a Christian, not that Protestantism and Catholicism have any propositions in common. 

This March, it will be 27 years since the release of ECT, and that is enough time to trace out at least some of the evil fruit of this document.  To do it full justice, would take far longer than could be done in a short blog post.  But I’d like to take this opportunity to demonstrate just how close the cooperation has become between the Roman Church-State and conservative, ersatz Evangelicals in just one area:  immigration.

On Immigration, the USCCB and EIT Speak as One

The past few days have been busy ones at the USCCB.  The bishops, it seems, can hardly believe the embarrassment of riches that has fallen into their lap with the election of America’s second Roman Catholic president.  Oddly enough, in both cases when America elected a Roman Catholic president, there were widespread and credible charges of election fraud, but that’s another story.   

Focusing on just the USCCB’s press releases, we find four on immigration:

USCCB Chairmen Welcome End of Ban Prohibiting Immigrants and Refugees from Certain Muslim Majority and African Countries Entering the United States

USCCB Migration Chairman Welcomes Administration’s Initial Effort to Reform Enforcement and Protect Families

USCCB President and migration Chairman Welcome Administration’s Commitment to DACA and the Call for Legislation on Immigration Reform

USCCB Chairmen Affirm Administration’s Order Ensuring All Persons Included in Census and Apportionment

EIT, on the other hand, while a little less energetic than their colleagues at the USCCB, nevertheless managed to put together two recent press releases on immigration

Evangelicals Join Broad Call for Bipartisan Immigration Reform

Evangelicals Applaud Day-One Biden Administration Changes to Immigration Policy Urge Bipartisan Congressional Leadership

In both cases, the press releases celebrate the fact that the Biden’s executive orders will release a flood of taxpayer subsidized immigration, migration, and refugee resettlement, the cost of which will be underwritten by the American people as their moral obligation.

As further evidence that EIT is an intellectual colony of Rome, consider the following paragraphs taken from EIT’s 1/19/2021 statement Evangelicals Join Broad Call for Bipartisan Immigration Reform:

The Evangelical Immigration Table includes Bethany Christian Services, the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, Faith and Community Empowerment, the National Association of Evangelicals, the National Latino Evangelical Coalition, The Wesleyan Church, World Relief and World Vision.

Other signatories include additional faith groups including the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops/Migration and Refugee Services, a wide range of trade associations and businesses, local police departments and chiefs of police, and a diverse spectrum of civic and advocacy organizations (emphasis mine).

One point of emphasis that I’ve made many times in print and in podcasts is that Roman Catholic Church-State is the premier globalist organization there is, a fact almost always overlooked, even by those who claim to be independent journalists and podcasters.  They simply do not have eyes to see the exceedingly great evil of the Vatican’s globalism, even as it stares them right in the face. 

I bring up the globalism of Rome, because there is another well-known globalist with connections to EIT, namely George Soros.  As Allan Wall, one of the few Evangelical writers on immigration not in thrall to Rome’s globalist immigration propaganda, noted in a 2015 article “Memo From Middle America: Trump Connects With Middle Americans. Southern Baptist ‘Inisder’ Russell Moore Connects With…George Soros,” EIT receives funding from George Soros, a globalist atheist.

So, we have EIT, which includes the influential Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention of which the prominent Russell Moore is currently president, connected both to the USCCB and George Soros, which never sleep in their efforts to subvert the Constitution of the United States of America and to bring about world government.  Both the USCCB and George Soros see immigration as a way of destabilizing America and other nation states to make it easier to fold them into their hoped-for global superstate.        

The Evil of Globalism

The 1648 Treat of Westphalia settled the Thirty Years’ War and ushered in the current system of international politics known as the Westphalian World Order.  The Thirty Years’ War was the first pan-European war and was a battle between nations to which the Reformation had come and the nations in subjection to the Pope.  Essentially, it was a war between Protestants and Catholics, and the Protestants won. 

The principal ideas of Westphalian World Order (WWO), are such that if you were you to explain it to people, many likely would respond that it’s just common sense.  Yet it took the Protestant Reformation and a major war to establish them in international law.  So what are the main ideas of WWO?  First, each state has sovereignty over its territory and domestic affairs, to the exclusion of all external powers.  Second, that each state, no matter how large or small, is equal in international law.   One implication of this is that supranational organizations such as the United Nations impinge on the sovereignty of nation states and are, therefore, to be avoided.

In his 2014 book World Order, Henry Kissinger remarked, “The Westphalian peace reflected a practical accommodation to reality, not a unique moral insight,” but this is incorrect.  The WWO is not merely a “practical accommodation to reality,” but an idea whose origins can be found in the Scriptures. 

In Genesis 11, we see man’s first attempt to build a global empire in the form of the Tower of Babel frustrated by God. The reason given is that, if they were to succeed, then, “nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.”  To prevent the centralization of power and the evil that would follow from it, God confused the language of the people, scattering them into their own nations according to their languages.  Another reason for separating people into their own nations was, as the Apostle Paul noted in his address on Mars Hill, to cause them to seek the Lord.  “He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and ahs determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him.”

With these passages in mind, it seems that the nation state system that came out of the Peace of Westphalia was not so much a “practical accommodation to reality” as one of the implications of the widespread preaching of and belief in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Put another way, the WWO is one of the implications of Christianity.  If this is true, and I am persuaded that it is, then those individuals and organizations – individuals and organizations such as the afore mentioned George Soros and USCCB – are doing the devil’s work when they attempt to overthrow nation states to produce, as it were, their globalist Nirvana, which we could perhaps call Tower of Babel 2.0.

Mass, nation breaking, taxpayer subsidized immigration, migration and refugee resettlement are some of the most powerful tools in the toolbox of these wicked globalists.  That Donald Trump opposed these policies is likely one of the reasons he was targeted for removal by the globalists. 

To the degree that nominally Evangelical organizations such as EIT are aligned with George Soros and the USCCB, they share in their sins of immigration treason.  To the degree that ordinary Christians are co-opted by EIT and other Romanist, globalist front organizations, they too share in the sins of the immigration reason lobby. 

Protestants do not oppose immigration.  Indeed, America has a history of being exceedingly generous with its immigration policy, and this is due in large measure to its Christian heritage. But immigration, migration and refugee resettlement of the sort supported by the Biden administration, EIT and the USCCB is destructive of nations, including America, represents immigration treason, and should be soundly rejected by Christians.
