FEAR OR FAITH - WHICH?

by Gerald L. K. Smith

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7. "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." James 2:17.

Unbelief is the mother of fear and fear is the parent of defeat. The atmosphere of America reeks with the saturation of fear, panic and defeatism. To the materialistic realist there is no hope. - We have been undone. We will be infiltrated, overrun and enslaved by the Christ-hating enemies of our civilization who have exploited and are still exploiting paganism, unbelief, degeneration, greed, softness and ignorance. Any faithless scholar can prove on paper that America is doomed, that the white race is on the run, and that Christian civilization is on the toboggan of disappearance.

The chain reaction which has precipitated the 'decline of the West' was set off by the 'booster stations' of intrigue of 50 years ago when the Christ-hating conspiracy of Jew Zionism re-outlined and streamlined its formula for world power. Fulfilling their Machiavellian techniques, as revealed in the satanic blueprint "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion", they gave us two world wars for the explicit purpose of liquidating and weakening the strong nations and the Christian peoples. Out of this chaos they financed and promoted the Bolshevik revolution and established their authority in the Kremlin with 300 commissars, 290 of whom were Jews.

Infiltrating the governments of the Western world by the manipulation of politics, education and culture they brainwashed the goyim (Gentiles) and conditioned us for appeasement. Patriots were crucified. Modern "Paul Reveres" were smeared, isolated and quarantined. Voices of protest and warning became voices crying in the wilderness. All China was conspired into the Russian orbit by puppeteers in the U. S. Government, working under the direction of 'hidden hand' manipulators.

In the fulfillment of these formulas of treason, appeasement and degeneration, the twins of the antiChrist, Zionism and Communism, not only corrupted, educators and politicians, but wove their threads of brainwashing techniques into the very warp and woof of the religious bureaucracies. They used Roosevelt to build up the military and economic strength of Russia. They used Truman to disarm and weaken the military defenses of the U.S.A. They used Eisenhower as a good-natured puppet, too weak and too ignorant to know much about anything.

Shortly before this was written it was virtually admitted by responsible White House spokesmen that the President had been in the dark concerning America's military danger until November 1, 1957. The formulas for chaos, agitation and revolution against Christian civilization which were exercised in Europe, Eurasia, and Asia have also been enforced in an attempt to arouse the uncounted population of a black continent still in the midst of head-hunting savagery against the constructive traditions of Anglo-Saxon civilization.

Thus, we are surrounded. The races of color have made of our little handful the most conspicuous minority in the world. Men of great discernment and intelligence feel that the white race as an entity will disappear in 50 years. Ours has become an economy of deficits, tax slavery and debt.

Secrets of military strategy and equipment have been transferred by spies, appeasers and nitwits to the enemy. The Western world has an army of one-half million in Europe. Across the border behind the Iron Curtain, poised for attack, are six million highly trained soldiers under Kremlin discipline. This does not count the millions upon millions of Orientals being trained to invade and slaughter us. We elected a so-called military expert to the Presidency (Eisenhower), only to be told now that in spite of our billions and billions and billions of expenditures, our equipment is obsolete, inadequate and second-rate. We are from two to five years behind the Kremlin savages in the building and the possession of military equipment.

Crime is on the increase. Juveniles and teen-agers have become savages roaming in our streets seeking whom they may devour. Scientists confess that one out of ten in our population is insane, or on the verge or insanity. Our churches and Sunday Schools are packed with lukewarm worshipers who are indeed neither hot nor cold. Their insipid indifference to right and wrong, treason and patriotism, survival and defeat refreshes our memory of the Scripture found in Revelations 3: 15-16: "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."

Yes, to the materialistic realist, America is doomed. The descent has begun. The decline is at hand. The finish is certain.

But I am not a materialist and the men and women who must save America cannot be materialists. They must not only be Nationalists, implying their concern for the preservation of national identity, racial self-respect and patriotic tradition,   (go to top)

(continued - Fear or Faith - Which?)
but they must be Christian Nationalists, because the word Christian implies faith, the faith that moves mountains, the faith summarized by Paul in the 11th Chapter of Hebrews as he summarizes a score of miraculous victories based not on materialistic realism, but based rather on the miracle of faith.

Years ago when I led out in the formation of a crusading political movement designed to challenge a remnant of patriots to re-commit themselves to our American traditions in the safe-guarding of our national independence and national existence - when I started this movement I was constructively criticized by some good people who felt that we were making a mistake in using the term "Christian" in connection with a political movement. I resisted this criticism with logical argument, and my position was endorsed. I contended that the crisis toward which America was moving was so deadly, so defeating, so certain and so impossible that nothing but a miracle of men's faith as defined in the personality of Jesus Christ could withstand the inevitable.

That inevitable has now arrived. We are in the midst of that chaos, that trial, that defeatism, that panic-creating fear which no mere mortal can solve. The survival of America is as impossible as was the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but nevertheless He arose. It is as impossible as it was for 13 weak and chaotic colonies to resist the military power of a great empire, but they resisted and they were victorious. The survival of America in the light of the above-summarized critical situations is as impossible as it was for a bleeding army under the leadership of George Washington to survive at Valley Forge, but he survived.

All the great and historic accomplishments and the unfolding of this civilization of ours have been impossible. Realism never undertakes the impossible. It only undertakes that which is correct, according to materialistic definitions - but faith which dispels fear and turns lukewarm men into hot, vital men, undertakes only the impossible as far as man's wisdom is concerned in the assurance that "with God all things are possible."

America must be revitalized by a dynamic re-commitment to victory based on the fires of a living faith. The lukewarm mouthings of lukewarm ecclesiastics will not save our people. Frequently in history it has required the flames that ascended from the flesh of those being burned at the stake to light the road to victory. It has yet to be demonstrated what sacrifices God will require of those of us who profess to love this civilization which grew out of the heart of His Son. We must be ready at any time to emulate the faith of the Shepherd boy who attacked Goliath, the giant, with a handful of stones and a slingshot. Just a sample of the miracle of faith.

Faith is not words. Faith is not a sanctimonious pose. Faith is not mouthings and holy sounds. Faith is the commitment of our entire lives to the high principles of spiritual reality. The lazy lukewarm Pharisee would love to solve the problem academically by saying, "Since God will save us, then let Him save us. Since God will preserve us, then let Him preserve us." But the test of faith is works. As the Scripture, quoted at the beginning of this article, says, "Faith without works is dead, being alone."

Washington not only prayed at Valley Forge, but he occupied, he stood fast, he suffered. Christ not only prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane; He suffered the torture of Pilate's Court, He agonized on Golgotha's Hill.

It will require a miracle to save America. We have the faith and we have the substance that will trigger that miracle and lift our people and our Nation to the pinnacle of self-respecting survival.

I give you my word. I am not afraid. I shall not entertain fear. I shall not be intimidated by the agents of the anti-Christ as long as I am on the side of God. Fear, timidity and defeat melt like snow and ice under the burning sun in the presence of men and women who are made unafraid because they have siphoned their courage and their dynamic strength from the eternal reservoir of the God who made everything, who controls outer space and inner space, and concerning whom the Psalmist spoke when he said: "The heavens declare the glory of God. The firmament showeth his handiwork."

In this critical hour while cynics, lukewarm patriots, timid souls, cowardly statesmen, materialistic philosophers and panic-stricken scientists are shivering in the presence of a Christ-hating materialistic enemy who is mobilizing one billion people against us, I shall claim the promises of God, the assurance of Christ, the wisdom of Holy Scripture - yes, the truth reemphasized by St. Paul, the martyred Apostle, who said: "God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

The recognition of this miraculous spiritual reality does not require that we be foolhardy nitwits, languishing in lazy belief, waiting for God to do the job. It requires the stimulation of every mental and physical corpuscle, that we tap every capacity within the orbit of our mental and physical selves in harmony with the Apostolic admonition which reads: "I beseech ye therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God."
