On Tuesday of this week, [Nicholas Fuentes](https://mobile.twitter.com/NickJFuentes)‏ of [America First Media](https://www.spreaker.com/user/westernsunradio) prompted a discussion when he tweeted, “A lot of people don’t like to hear this but the only way we stand a chance at reordering our civilization is if we return to Christianity.” Eli Mosley‏ of [Identity Evropa](https://www.identityevropa.com) [responded](https://mobile.twitter.com/account/suspended), “Christianity is certainly not the only way to fix our issues and is at the heart of what got us here in the first place. I have no problem with Christians but as a group they tend to put their people second to their universal religion so while the cultural and spiritual significance of Christianity cannot be ignored as part of us we also can’t rely on it as the saving force. We have to spiritually adopt a sort of white Shintoism. If a Christian sect with those values rises, then so be it. But this is a losing strategy as Christians will globally be nonwhite faster than our countries.” Fuentes’s co-host, [James Allsup](https://mobile.twitter.com/realJamesAllsup), then [chimed in](https://mobile.twitter.com/realJamesAllsup/status/915261040832552960), “As the originator of the phrase White Shinto I fully support memeing it into reality.”

To be clear, Mosley and Allsup both said during the discussion that they did not literally want to adopt Shintoism, a polydemonic belief system that “presupposes the existence of a spirit or invisible divine power inherent in the visible object of Nature” wherein people “worship the former by and through the latter, and not the latter itself.” For example, Mount Fuji was deified as Asama-no-Okami. Rather than literal polydemonism, what they are instead proposing is some sort of undefined religion that involves “a belief that ones family, nation, and state are all intrinsically/spiritually linked.” This is not unlike what the Nazis attempted with “Positive Christianity,” which was “never a faith with a liturgy or a canon, with a theology or doctrine which made it practicable,” somehow neither Catholic nor Protestant yet allowing all of the above “insofar as they [did] not jeopardize [the state’s] existence or conflict with the manners and moral sentiments of the Germanic race.” So-called “white Shinto” is seeking a similar outcome today.

The problem with this thinking is that it is inherently backwards since religion and theology deal with universal truths. God either exists or not, gods either exist or not, and so on. The truth exists outside of and independent from us. If the entire world is wrong, what is right remains unchanged. The very idea of “white Shintoism,” however, presupposes that we should be “shopping” for whatever religious belief system results in the desired outcome. Implied therein is that Christianity may or may not be the solution, as is Odinism, Buddhism, Islam, Sikhism, Judaism, or even a new religion made out of whole cloth. It is starting from the individual’s perception of the nation and then acting as though the rest of the universe will change to fit that perception. If it was determined that Shinto polydemonism offered the best solution, should whites start to dress as Shinto priests and samurai? Should we adopt Japanese customs and pray to Japanese demons? Judaism certainly offers ‘a belief that one’s family, nation, and state are all linked,’ so should whites convert en masse to Judaism? Would that involve becoming Rabbinic Pharisees, or would it be an entirely new sect? Would white men need to wear yarmulkes and grow out their payot? Sikhs are supposed to always be armed with a ritual dagger. Should white men start shopping for turbans?

It is one thing to say, “We need to utilize our religion to strengthen our nation,” but it is another to say, “We need to adopt a religion that will do so.” And it is the latter that is implied when saying “Christianity may be the answer.” Christianity is either true or not. It is either the answer or not. There is no God Shopping Network offering a 10% discount if you select your preferred deity and religion in the next two minutes. Whites could adopt any of a variety of polydemonic or monodemonic systems tomorrow and might even achieve some success against liberalism, but it would still all be hollow, a false costume worn by lost souls espousing a false religion. Europeans and the diaspora need to be given something to truly believe in as they once did, a militant faith that unites across national boundaries without trying to erase national identity. Luckily, the one true faith is the answer to all of the above.

Christianity is not naturally opposed to race or nations because God divided mankind (Genesis 11:8-9) and set the boundaries of nations (Acts 17:26). Why would God have divided man just to then want us to join together that which He divided? When God told the Israelites to go into Canaan (Numbers 33:51-55), He did not tell them to yoke themselves to the Canaanites but rather, “Destroy all the inhabitants of that land: beat down their pillars, and break in pieces their statues, and waste all their high places, Cleansing the land, and dwelling in it. For I have given it you for a possession… But if you will not kill the inhabitants of the land: they that remain, shall be unto you as nails in your eyes, and spears in your sides, and they shall be your adversaries in the land of your habitation.” Jesus said that He came not to bring peace but a sword (Matthew 10:34) and told the Apostles to arm themselves (Luke 22:36), which they did (John 18:10). It is true that we are to treat foreign travelers with kindness (Leviticus 19:34), but any man who does not care for his own, especially those of his house, has denied the faith and is worse than an infidel (1 Timothy 5:8).

Christianity is also not naturally ecumenical. Indeed, the Lord told the Pharisees “that the kingdom of God shall be taken from [them], and shall be given to a nation yielding the fruits thereof” (Matthew 21:43) and that the only way to the Father is through Him (John 14:6), and, while it is true that Christians are to carry the Word to all the nations (Matthew 28:19), those nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues will exist unto the End (Revelation 7:9). Thus, Christians are not called to create one people, one race, and one language out of some misguided sense of universalism. No, that is a new Tower of Babel built on foundations of human arrogance, seeking to undo God’s will because some think they know better than the Lord. Christianity is universal because God reigns over all, but He reigns over His creation including the races and nations that He made. There is no such thing as “Judeo-Christianity,” and any suggestion otherwise is blasphemy.

Christianity is also not tolerant of modernity and all of its ills. Feminism is a sin as women are not to usurp authority over men because Eve transgressed, not Adam (1 Timothy 2:12-14), women being the weaker vessel that nonetheless must be honored co-heirs of the grace of life (1 Peter 3:7). Homosexuality and cross-dressing are sins (Leviticus 20:13, Deuteronomy 22:5), and those who teach otherwise are known by their fruits as false prophets (Matthew 7:15-20). We live in a time where many “will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables,” so it is for us to be vigilant, labor in all things, do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill our duties (2 Timothy 4:3-5). This means we must correct sin in others (James 5:19-20), not excuse it.

Now, it is a valid concern that the Church today is infested with modernist heretics, and Protestantism is even worse with its “female ordination,” “gay marriage,” and an incessant need to import and adopt the Third World rather than performing actual charity overseas, but this does not mean that Christianity itself is the problem. Latin Christians, otherwise known as Catholics, spent centuries defending Europe against jihadis and subversive merchants, and Christendom can return to that. At this time, the Church may not be serving the Lord as she should, but there are sedevacantists, sedeprivationists, and so on preserving true, traditional faith. It may not be as simple as picking a local parish to sit in the pews on Sunday, but traditionalists certainly do not need to shop around for “white Shinto,” resort to “white Sharia,” or try fabricating some sort of new religion from nothing. The one, true faith remains true, and traditionalists simply need to be willing to embrace it, to build the new institutions needed to sustain the faith and eventually restore the Church. Heretics come and go, but the Lord’s truth remains. All you need to do is pick up the cross daily and follow Him (Luke 9:23). And don’t forget your sword.
