These were the opening remarks to the program I did last night, which I thought would be better off posted here.
Christogenea Saturdays, October 3rd, 2015 - The Protocols of Satan, Part 7
Today I ordered a copy of an evidently out-of-print book called The Invention of Sacred Tradition, which supposedly “examines the phenomenon of 'invented traditions' in religions ranging in time from Zoroastrianism to Scientology”. Now, we would agree that many so-called religions are merely “invented traditions”, however the book has a deeper motive. It contains a chapter entitled “Antisemitism, conspiracy culture, Christianity and Islam: the history and contemporary religious significance of the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion”. I almost wanted to read the entire chapter, and offer my own criticisms of it, for tonight's program. But I could not get the entire chapter online, so I will wait for a hard copy of the book to arrive. I thought the Kindle price of the book was ridiculous, since the publisher, Cambridge University Press, is asking almost as much for that as for the hard copy.
This book interested me because it attempts to critically analyze the use of the Protocols in Christian Fundamentalism, and even within Christian Identity circles. The analysis includes discussions of the various Christian interpretations of Biblical eschatology, some of which fit our point of view. While I do not agree with all of the conclusions concerning the Revelation reached by many fundamentalists and even by other Identity Christians, it is amusing to see Satan attempt a scholarly analysis of his Christian adversaries, and that is how I quantify this book. Christians may merely believe the Bible as the Word of God, but the devil will pick apart and criticize those Christian beliefs on his own terms, and offer his criticisms to the world as “scholarship”.
Then the devils will lump those Christian beliefs together with all of the other deceptions which they themselves have created, or if they have not created them they have nevertheless assisted in their propagation, and endeavor to discredit them all, and Christianity along with them. In the end, the only thing the devils seem to find credible is Jewry itself. This is evident in passages from the book where the authors do not understand how some Bible-believing Christians could even make the claim that Jesus Christ was not a Jew, and mention “rather odd statements, such as the apparent distinction between 'God's chosen people, and the Jews'”. So their scholarship betrays their own prejudices, and their own 'invented traditions', because taking the Old Testament histories and prophetic books, the New Testament statements of Jesus Christ and Paul of Tarsus, and the histories of Flavius Josephus as our sources, without a doubt we can prove that such a distinction exists. Satan has all the money in the world, and with it he keeps alive his deception, trying to put himself above the fray while perpetuating all of his lies. The Jews and their allies in modern academia have the appearance of scholarly authority, but they certainly do not possess the substance of such authority. So in the weeks to come, we will hope to present something of a criticism of that chapter.
If a jew is moving his lips, he's lying. If you see a rabbi, there has already been a crime!
