Confederate Heritage and History Day

 


On March 18th 2005 Alabama governor Bob Riley proclaimed April to be Confederate Heritage and History month throughout the state. The Wetumpka League of the South has been celebrating our own Confederate Heritage and History Day in Wetumpka, Alabama for eight years now.

The 8th Annual Confederate Heritage and History Day was a big success in April of 2009. We enjoyed a very large turn out and we would like to thank everyone that came out to support this event. The Wetumpka League of the South would love to see you all come back in 2010.

This year on May 8th at 9:00 a.m. we will be hosting our 9th Annual Confederate Heritage and History Day at Gold Star Park in downtown Wetumpka and we hope that you will join us there for the celebration of the strength, courage, and hard struggle our ancestors made for Southern independence. The day will begin with our parade through historic downtown Wetumpka ending at Gold Star Park and complete with Confederate reenactors and Southern Belles. Following the parade you can stay and enjoy food, drinks, games, Confederate vendors, music, prizes, and more — a fun free event for the whole family!

This event is held to honor the sacrifice of Southern families and the 30,000 Alabama Confederate soldiers who died for Southern liberty. It is time for us to remember and embrace our unique Southern heritage.

This event will be held come rain or shine.

If you would like information about participating in this event or would like to make a donation to help make our parade an even better one please email heritageandhistoryday@yahoo.com for more information.

Confederate Heritage and History Day is hosted by the William Lowndes Yancey Wetumpka chapter of the League of the South.

McClatchy Washington Bureau – David Goldstein –
The Confederate guerrilla leader, William Quantrill, had attacked the town, and the governor implored Washington to send federal troops.

A different kind of request came from Dr. G.P. Miller, a black physician from Michigan, who wrote the War Department in 1861 offering to raise a regiment of “sharpshooters” to fight the rebels. The Army praised his “patriotic spirit and intelligence,” but said no thanks.
“Coloured persons,” came the reply, legally could be given arms “only in times of great emergency.”

Such a fundamentalist fantasy would turn back the clock to when radical inequalities were required, not challenged. Under the rhetoric of “strict construction” and “States’ Rights,” neo-Confederate ideas once again are taking hold. Some governors have floated the idea of Secession.

[HE GITS THE CHRISTIAN REPUBLIC RIGHT, BUT NOT WHITE, YET LIKE DR. RUSHDOONY CLEARLY IMPLIED ...]
Second Best – Promoting An Intermediary

Al Cronkrite / The Covenant News:

I am a Dominionist. Being a Dominionist in Christian circles is similar to being an anti-Semite in jewish circles; both words carry a ton of unwarranted derision. I became a Dominionist because after several decades of intense Charismatic Christianity AmeriKan society remained like the barren fig tree Christ condemned –fruitless. John Lofton referred me to Chalcedon where I was referred to R. J. Rushdoony’s Institutes. It was that seminal work that seeded my heart with a love for God’s Law and convinced me that adhering to His Commandments is the only way to reverse the world’s rush toward despotism. For several years I was a Constitutionalist and a supporter of Ron Paul but as my considerations have matured I have begun to wonder why those of us who love God’s Law do not forsake our secular Constitution and support The Law instead.

While enjoying the soft lakeside breezes at a Florida outdoor dinner party last weekend I spoke in depth with a Christian pastor.

He had attended a Baptist seminary, was antinomian, and afflicted with dominion-phobia. The name R. J. Rushdoony caused him to shudder. To him the Christian religion consisted of church attendance, evangelism, and piety. He believed in obedience without specific guidelines and ignored sections of scripture as no longer applicable. His excuse for the dismal performance of God’s church was that it had also failed to transform society during Biblical times.

He had an acrimonious split from a local Baptist church leaving him without a congregation but with first hand knowledge of the divisive sinfulness of laypersons. We chatted some about pastoral leadership and the dichotomy involved in attempting to build a church with non-offensive preaching while at the same time exercising the confrontation Christian growth requires.

Like hundreds of thousands of Evangelical preachers this man preached a seeker friendly gospel that did not include legal standards. He urged a gossamer righteousness devoid of prescribed enforcement. He supported the Ten Commandments but ignored God’s punishments. Since he believed that God no longer endows His people with the responsibility of bringing His creation under His legal system he, like millions of other Evangelicals, is languishing; waiting for the Second Coming and the reign of Christ. He was against abortion, homosexuality, and adultery but did not relate these sins to God’s Law.

His theological training had withstood the obvious dearth of righteousness resulting from the Gospel he preached and he was dubious of the theological integrity of my lay status. There was the incipient arrogance of a smirk dancing around the corners of his mouth when I contended God’s Laws should be enforced in our society. I expressed my hope that he might find another more harmonious pastorate and bid him adieu.

Evangelicals are not alone in ignoring the entire Word of God. Reformed Christians also prefer to live under man’s laws. Pastor Joe Morecraft is a great [???] preacher and miles ahead of his brethren in addressing our current dilemma. However, his support for the Constitution instead of God’s Law is disappointing. Hear his short speech here.

While Christians contend for obedience to the United states Constitution it is being systematically shredded by our democratically elected officials. Erstwhile congressman Henry Hyde, 1924 –2007, expressed the sentiment of most of the leadership, “There are things in the Constitution that have been overtaken by events, by time. Declaration of war is one of them…There are things no longer relevant to a modern society…Why declare war if you don’t have to?…We are saying to the President, use your judgment…So, to demand that we declare war is to strengthen something to death. You have got a hammerlock on this situation, and it is not called for. Inappropriate, anachronistic, it isn’t done anymore….”

[LET MY PEOPLE GO ===> WHITE_CHRISTIAN_SOUTHRON_NATION!!!]
A CONCURRING (BIBLICAL) OPINION FOR SECESSION
By Chuck Baldwin

NewsWithViews.com

My son, Tim Baldwin, who is a constitutional attorney, recently engaged my friend, attorney Ed Vieira, Jr., in a spirited and intellectual written debate on the rightness or wrongness of State secession. Vieira took the unionist position that states do not have the constitutional right to secede. Tim took the freedomist position that States have both a constitutional and Natural Law right to secede (a position with which I firmly agree, as most readers know).

Here is the link to Tim’s columns.

And here is the link to Vieira’s columns.

One element that neither writer covered (understandably so, given the legal nature of the debate) was the BIBLICAL right of secession. Christians rightly square everything with the principles and precepts of the Holy Scriptures. So, is there Biblical approbation and authority for State secession?

Before answering the Biblical question, let me briefly touch upon the Christian reaction to State secession both here in America and overseas. First, overseas. I doubt that there are many Christian pastors and churchmen who would be willing to denounce, denigrate, or declare as illegitimate the nation-state of Norway today. What Christian would advocate cutting off trade or diplomatic relations with Norway? Where is the Christian denomination or Church that would not recognize the right of Norway to peacefully exist?

Of course, Norway’s parliament dissolved the union between Sweden and Norway on June 7, 1905. While an attempted dissolution that had taken place in 1814 was squashed by a Swedish military victory, the separation of 1905 was done peacefully and without bloodshed (although Norway was willing to shed blood, had it been required). Since Norway’s secession in 1905, the two neighboring countries have enjoyed extremely close–even brotherly–relations.

So, where is the spiritual condemnation for Norway? Who among us would quote Romans 13, et al., in an attempt to demonize the brave, independent spirit of the Norwegians?

By the same token, where is the spiritual outrage over the dissolution of Czechoslovakia? On January 1, 1993, the federal State of Czechoslovakia separated into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. This has been called the “Velvet Divorce” in political parlance, due to the amicable and peaceful nature of the separation. (Of course, Czechoslovakia itself had come into existence by the breakup of Austria-Hungary at the end of World War I.)

We could go on an on with historical examples of how nation-states separated–by either violent or non-violent means. So, why is it that Christians, pastors, and churchmen will not so much as bat an eye at the numerous State separations that have taken place over the centuries, but suddenly become righteously indignant when discussing the American South’s attempted separation from the Union in 1861–or even of the 13 Colonies’ separation from Great Britain in 1776?

And while we are on the subject of hypocrisy, how dare any Church or pastor denounce State secession or separation on one hand and then turn around and celebrate Independence Day on July 4? How dare they host “patriotic” services and invite special patriotic speakers and singers to come into their churches? How dare they encourage civic involvement and responsibility (such as voting)? How dare they promote participation in the U$ military, if they believe that there was no legitimacy to America’s separation from Great Britain? Plus, how dare today’s preachers and Bible teachers condemn what George Washington and the boys did in the American Revolution, and then turn around and celebrate the freedom and independence that was produced and preserved by that same Revolution?

Now, let’s look at the Biblical record.

The right of State secession is rooted and grounded in the Word of God. Did the Holy Spirit not inspire the New Testament writer to say, “Now all these things [Old Testament history] happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come”? (I Corinthians 10:11 KJV)

The last time I checked, the Holy Bible contained 66 Books, not 27; and Jehovah’s introduction of civil government in the Old Testament is replete with examples of State secession.

Did God not separate the nations at the Tower of Babel in Genesis chapter 11? [ACTUALLY, HE ALREADY HAD IN THE PREVIOUS CHAPTER: Genesis 10:1 NIV  The Table of Nations, BUT OTHERWISE ...] He certainly did. In fact, the goal of global union was first attempted at Babel. At this point, it was God, Himself, Who was the sponsor of “State separation.”

Leave Confederate History in the past‎

The Guardian –
In 1861, just weeks after Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas seceded from the onion, Alexander Stephens, the vice-president of the Confederacy delivered a speech which became known as the Cornerstone Speech. In it, he said: “[The] foundations [of the new government] are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the White man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.” Even though McDonnell has now recognised slavery as part of Confederate History Month, the above statement alone should be enough to make him ponder deeply on the merits of commemorating anything EVERYTHANG from which such assertions came.
States like Virginia only fought so hard for their Independence from the onion in the ABOLITION war because they wished to continue to enslave millions of black people and to maintain the White Supremacy that Stephens talked about in the Cornerstorne Speech. Furthermore, not only did Confederate States secede from the onion in order to protect their interests as slave owners, but their actions were also considered treason and illegal in the eyes of the rest of the onion. And all that is the “sacrifice” that is apparently worth commemorating? [YES!!!]

 

Things fall apart; the center cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

[REMEMBER WHEN THE REPUBLIC TURNED EMPIRE WAS WHITE???]

Ethnic Hegemonies in American History, Part 2
George Hocking
Civil SECESSION War and Empire

Since colonial times Southerners had used imported African slave labor. Consequently they lived symbiotically with the most genetically different of Earth’s peoples. Slavery continued after the Revolutionary War and became increasingly important as commercial cotton cultivation spread westward through the Gulf Coastal region at the start of Scots-Irish hegemony. The resultant Cotton Kingdom, ruled by a mix of Southerners from the old Atlantic coastal colonies and Scots-Irish from the interior, sought expansion into Latin America by conquest, [TEXAS???] while New England, which then valued ethnic, cultural, and religious homogeneity, opposed it.

The South was thus the region most tolerant of what is now called racial diversity. [UNDER WHITE RULE, AND WHAT OF INDIAN REMOVAL???] New England, for example, tended to liken all Indians to the dangerous heathens that nearly destroyed it in 1675. Such attitudes led John Chivington, a clergyman and Union officer who defeated a Southern invasion of the New Mexico Territory at the Battle of Glorieta Pass in 1862, to perpetrate one of America’s most notorious massacres of peaceful Indians at Sand Creek in 1864. Confederates, in contrast, made Cherokee Indian [ALLY, NOT A SOUTHERNER!!!] Stand Watie a brigadier general in their army. New England was also extremely hostile to newly arriving Irish Catholics, [BUT HAD NO PROBLEM SHIPPIN' 'EM OFF TO KILL SOUTHRONS!!!] and many of its political leaders began careers in an Anti-Masonic Party opposed to Masonic religious tolerance. But because blacks were rarely seen outside the South, it was easy for them to be idealized in New England.

The new Republican Party became [1850s???--->TRY A LITTLE EARLIER CAUSE THAT'S AFTER THE CHANGE IN THE 1830s WHEN UN-GODLY TRANSCENDENTALISM & ABOLITIONISM TOOK HOLD] the political vehicle for restoring New England’s hegemony by attacking slavery, but its support was initially limited to Greater New England, both the original coastal region as well as an area south of the Great Lakes settled by immigrants moving west from there.

That changed rapidly, however, when New England’s publishing dominance influenced public opinion through publications like Uncle Tom’s Cabin that demonized Cotton Kingdom Whites and idealized its blacks. Calls from a small cadre of abolitionists for slaves to revolt and kill Whites created great fear among Southerners. They had already suffered through Nat Turner’s murderous slave revolt in 1831, and abolitionist John Brown’s abortive attempt to touch off another revolt at Harper’s Ferry in 1859 raised their fears to fever pitch. Meanwhile, crude southern propaganda that justified slavery’s expansion by idealizing it as good for everybody raised widespread fears that it threatened the freedom of people who did not own slaves.

By 1860 enough Scots-Irish and German Midwesterners voted Republican to enable APE Lincoln to narrowly win a four-way race. In reaction, the Cotton Kingdom seceded from the United States to become the Confederacy, and the war that followed divided the once hegemonic Scots-Irish for more than 100 years.

New England hegemony and Republican Party dominance was nearly continuous for the next 72 years, even though the Democratic Party of pre-war Scots-Irish hegemony still occasionally won national elections. Former Confederates, who won freedom from Republican occupation and local black rule through an eleven-year insurgency, found common ground as Democrats with urban Irish Catholics, who had themselves resisted discriminatory New England hegemony in the major New York City anti-war revolt of 1863. Greater New England, however, was now largely free to economically and culturally dominate America. Regional centers of economic power like Chicago’s meat packing and manufacturing industries, Pittsburgh’s steel industry, Cleveland’s oil industry, and especially New York City’s commercial, financial, and railroad dominance arose throughout Greater New England. Its tycoons paid homage to New England’s traditional cultural hegemony by building opulent mansions in its heart at Newport, Rhode Island and by mimicking New England mores.

But even New Englanders began to question the consequences of the … War’s power shift as tycoons enriched themselves by depressing wages through mass immigration to the east coast from Southern and Eastern Europe and to the west coast from Asia. Meanwhile, railroad monopolies preyed on German and Scandinavian farmers in the Midwest by keeping costs high for the manufactured goods they bought and low for the crops they sold. Expansion into the third world, once anathema to greater New England when sought [???] by the Cotton Kingdom, was now embraced as Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines were quickly added to an American Empire. Trusts and corporations gained new quasi-governmental powers, enabling them to increasingly encroach on elected local governments. The extremes of wealth and poverty these policies created caused the last quarter of the nineteenth century to be called the Gilded Age.

It was only much later, after hearing Lincoln’s speech on April 11, and learning that General Grant would return to Washington on April 13, that Booth decided it was time for “something decisive & great” to be done (p. 399). The opportunity presented itself on the night of April 14, and after shooting Lincoln in the back of the head (Grant had declined the invitation to accompany the Lincolns to the theater), Booth uttered the famous line, “Sic semper tyrannis” before exiting the stage. This Latin phrase meaning “thus always to tyrants” was not only the State motto of Virginia but it was also what Brutus allegedly said following the assassination of Julius Caesar.

  Editorial

 

Fellow Compatriots in the Chaplains’ Corps and Friends,

 

The March issue was the 50th issue of the CCC.  This is indeed a milestone for us in the Chaplains’ Corps.

 

Who can estimate the value of true unity?  This is an important question.  God through his inspired Word asserted, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!  It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life forevermore.”

 

God’s view is that it is good and pleasant to dwell together in “unity.”  This does not include unity or compromise with evil.  “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial (or the devil)? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel” (2 Cor. 6:14-15)?  What is a good and pleasant thing?  Unity among brethren is good and pleasant, says Jehovah.  This truth must be very important in the eyes of the Lord.  We live in an age when there is a very destructive idea of unity.  What do I mean?  Now unity at any cost is often pressed on us theologically, politically and ethnically.  All convictions and Biblical truth is sacrificed for so-called unity.  Pluralism conforms to every religion that rejects the true and living God revealed through Jesus Christ as the only Lord and Saviour.  Truly the hearts of men are set on evil continually.  They prefer spiritual darkness to light!  F. B. Meyer asserted, “Unity does not mean uniformity; but oneness of heart, and feeling, and aim.”

 

Remember the terrible rebellion of Absalom against his father David.  Absalom was slain by David’s men in spite of David’s request that no one kill his son.  Those loyal to David knew that as long as Absalom lived there would be disharmony and division.  David went into mourning after hearing of his son’s death (2 Sam. 19:1-4).  Joab had a heart to heart talk with his king (vv. 5-8).  The people of Israel were strife-ridden (vv. 9-10).  Strife needed to be put away and the king needed to be brought back—“And king David sent to Zadok and to Abiathar the priests, saying, Speak unto the elders of Judah, saying, Why are ye the last to bring the king back to his house? seeing the speech of all Israel is come to the king, even to his house.  Ye are my brethren, ye are my bones and my flesh: wherefore then are ye the last to bring back the king?  And say ye to Amasa, Art thou not of my bone, and of my flesh?  God do so to me, and more also, if thou be not captain of the host before me continually in the room of Joab.  And he bowed the heart of all the men of Judah, even as the heart of one man; so that they sent this word unto the king, Return thou, and all thy servants.  So the king returned, and came…” (vv.11-15). Unity was restored!  True unity needs to be restored among Southern people.  Why?  Many are on guilt trips fashioned by the guilt police put to work generations ago in 1865.  Our people are fractured and federalized!

 

Do you remember the early church and the unity among brethren?  “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.  And thy continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:41-42).  What are we continuing in?  Are we steadfast in Biblical doctrine, Christ centered fellowship and upholding one another before the Throne of Grace?

 

As our attention is drawn to Psalm 133 we are brought to realize that the length of the Psalm does not or should not detract from it importance.  Spurgeon explained, “In this Psalm there is no wry word, all is ‘sweetness and light.’”

 

This Psalm begins with [1] the declaration of a divine truth (v. 1), then continues with [2] two comparisons (vv. 2-3a), and ends with [3] a divine assertion (v. 3b).

 

Yes, we begin with the declaration of a divine truth (v. 1). Consider the importance of the opening word—“Behold.”  Here the Lord is drawing special attention to what is being said.  When a driver does not pay heed to road signs he may end up over a cliff or in grave danger.  When we do not pay attention to God’s Word the result can have eternal consequences.  The Hebrew word hinnêh means “behold, lo, or see.”  Jehovah demands our look.

 

Next, note the divine declaration regarding unity—“how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”  Two comparative remarks relative to unity are made—“how good and how pleasant.”  The word “how” gives an intensification to both remarks.  Behold, how good and how pleasant it is!  “It is good in itself, agreeable to the will of God, the conformity of earth to heaven. It is good for us, for our honor and comfort. It is pleasant and pleasing to God and all good men; it brings constant delight to those who live in unity. Behold, how good! We cannot conceive or express the goodness and pleasantness of it. Behold it is a rare thing, and therefore admirable. Behold and wonder that there should be so much goodness and pleasantness among men, so much of heaven on this earth! Behold it is an amiable thing, which will attract our hearts. Behold it is an exemplary thing, which, where it is, is to be imitated by us with a holy emulation” [Matthew Henry].  The Hebrew word for “pleasant” nâ‛îym means “something lovely, charming or attractive.”  It was that which filled the heart with delight.  This word was used for harmony in music, the pleasantness of a field of grain or the sweetness of honey. 

 

Consider the composition of this unity—“for brethren to dwell together in unity!”  This is a unity of value, heart, soul, corporate interest or purpose, which should characterize us.  The key here is the word “brethren” which excludes mankind in general.  Here it refers to sameness, literally sameness of blood as we are with our Confederate ancestors.  In application it could be sameness through the blood of Christ in salvation; those adopted into the family of God through regeneration; Christ is the firstborn among many brethren.  The word “dwell” in this context meant to sit down, to be seated, to remain, to inhabit and to dwell together as a family which is in one accord.  “Unity” is oneness produced by likeness.  Christ Jesus in His High Priestly prayer prayed—“That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us: that, the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me” (John 17:21).  True unity MUST be the result of a right relationship with our Lord.  True Biblical unity is a forerunner of peace—“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints” (1 Cor. 14:33; consider 2 Cor. 13:11).  “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:7).  The basis of unity is always to be truth.  The basis of unity for the world is the compromise of truth, which is nothing else but the embracing of evil!  We MUST agree on the Deity/Humanity of Christ, His substitutionary atonement, His resurrection, His saviourhood, the inspiration of the Scripture, the truth of the Trinity, etc. for we need to “dwell together in unity.”

 

Lastly, remember the two comparisons:  “It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion….”  These two illustrations are self explanatory.  Thus the unity so desired is as fragrant as oil and as refreshing as the due in the midst of draught.  What is the emphasis?  “The oil does not rest on the head, but flows down upon the beard, and to the collar; and the dew does not remain on Hermon, but flows down on the mountains of Zion” [W. Graham Scroggie].  True unity comes down from the Lord upon those in accord with Him.  Consider the assertion of Jehovah—“for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life forevermore.” The ultimate blessing commanded by Jehovah is “even life for evermore.”  “He spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast” (Ps. 33:9).  At Jehovah’s command there was creation (Psalm 148:5) and at His command is eternal life.  George Swinnock declared over three hundred years ago, “The stream of regeneration, or a spiritual life, which shall never cease, but still go forward and increase, till it swell to, and be swallowed up in the ocean of eternal life, ‘even life for evermore.’”  This is encapsulated for us by  John Bunyan the writer of Pilgrim’s Progress, “Christians are like the several flowers in a garden, that have upon each of them the dew of heaven, while, being shaken with the wind, they let fall their dews at each other’s roots, whereby they are jointly nourished and become nourishers of each other.”  Oh, Lord, give us true unity!

Chaplain-in-Chief’s Missing Editorial

 

 

Dear Compatriots,

 

Our Chaplain-in-Chief Fayard has had surgery on his eyes and was unable to prepare an editorial for this issue.  His eyelids have drooped until it was cutting off his vision.  He has had two cornea transplants.  Thus his eyes have a precarious history.  Please be in prayer for him as he recovers.

 

He is pressing on as best he can.  His dear wife Denise sent us the exposition on The Wondrous Providence of God.

The Wondrous Providence of God

Esther 4:14

 

Esther 4:14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

 

INTRO: Can you imagine this, a Book of the Bible where the name of God is not even mentioned.  A book where His name cannot be found.  Such a book of the Bible exists; it is the book of Esther.  Although the name of God is not found in the book of Esther, He is found on every page.  Every page bears the mark of the author.  Shakespeare’s name never appears in his works, yet his works are undeniably his.

            The key word that describes this book is providence, the providence of God.

 

I.          UNMASKING PROVIDENCE

                        A.        We get our word Providence from the Latin word provideo.  The prefix pro means before.  Video means “I see.”

                        B.         The Sovereign God of the universe sees events before they take place.  God sees the future with precise clarity because He is in charge, and He is the one who works events according to His purpose, plan, and will (Eph 1:1,5,9,11).  At times, things seem to be out of hand; but God is in the wings, working invisibly behind the scenes.  Ecclesiastes 7:13-14, Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked?  In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.  The child of God is especially assured of God’s plan for him (Rom 8:28; Psa 56:8).

                        C.        Here are some definitions that will help us understand what providence is:

                                                1.         Providence is God at the steering wheel of the universe.

                                                2.         Providence means that God is behind the scenes, shifting and dissecting the happenings of the world.

                                                3.         Providence is God standing in the shadows, in the wings, keeping watch over His own.

                                                4.         Providence is the hand of God in the glove of history; and that glove will never move until He moves it.  The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will (Prov 21:1).

 

II.         UNFOLDING THE PLOT

                        A.        The book of Esther clearly, plainly, and strongly teaches the Providence of God.  In the weeks to come, we will continue to see the Providence of God unfold before our eyes.  We will see the hand of God moving in the glove of history.

                        B.         The plot of this story pictures the sure providence of God.  An event to remember (2:21-23).  Survival of the Jews is the plot of Esther.  Mordecai’s refusal to bow before Haman enrages this self serving leader so much that he determines that all Jews in Persia would pay with their lives (3:2-6, 8-13).  It did not take long for the word to get out that the Jews were in real danger (4:1-3).  Knowing that there was only one person who could get to the king to have this impending tragedy stopped, Mordecai appealed to Queen Esther (4:13-17).  Esther, with the help of an unseen hand, the hand in the glove of history, devises a plan to eliminate the main enemy of her people.  First, Esther invites Haman and the king to a banquet where the king has vowed to hear what is troubling the Queen and grant her wish (5:6-8).    Haman is elated, but his joy turns to bitterness when he passes Mordecai who refuses to honor him.  Infuriated, he cries on his wife’s shoulder.   She advises Haman to build a gallows to hang Mordecai (5:12-14).    In the midst of all these happenings, God in His providence gives king Ahasuerus insomnia.  He does this to awaken in the king an awareness of Mordecai’s past deed of heroism— heroism that had saved the king’s life (6:1-3). Through night promptings, God can awaken the sleeper.  God uses the Gospel to awaken the sinner (Rom 1:16)  Haman has to drape a robe around Mordecai’s shoulders instead of putting a noose around his neck (6:4-12).    In Esther 6:14, we see a mad Haman picked up by the king’s chamberlains to bring him to the banquet. At the banquet table, Esther reveals the ugly plot against her people the Jews.  The king wants to know who is the evil man behind this (7:5).  In a raging fit, the king orders Haman to be hanged on the gallows he had prepared for Haman (7:10).

 

III.       UNDERSTANDING THE GOD OF PROVIDENCE BETTER

                        A.        God does work in mysterious ways; at least, His ways are mysterious to us.

                        B.         Our God is an awesome God, and we need to see just how awesome He is if we are to get a glimpse of the way He works: The mind of God— His unsearchable judgments. Searching the mind of God is like a minnow surveying the ocean.  The best we can do is see what lies in front of our tiny eyes.  Read carefully the words of Isaiah the prophet (Isa 55:8-9).  The will of God— His unfathomable ways.  The ways of God are deep.  So deep that many times we can not plumb their depths.  Roman 11:33-34. The power of God— His Sovereign control.  Our God is an all powerful God. He is omnipotent and can do what He pleases when He pleases.  Daniel 4:34-35.

 

IV.       UNFAILING PROVISION

                        A.        We have already seen that the word providence comes from the Latin words provideo: pro meaning “before”, and video “I see.”  As the Sovereign over this universe, God sees things before they happen.  Because God sees ahead, He has made provision for His people.  Another definition of providence is “to provide.”  God will provide (Rom 8:29-31).

                        B.         God has made provision for salvation to all who will believe.  The story of Abraham and Isaac on Mount Moriah (Gen 22) is the story of God’s provision.  In Gen 22: 6-7, we see how Abraham had the wood, fire, and knife for the sacrifice.  Note that Isaac says, Where is the lamb for a burnt offering?  In verse 8, Abraham answers: God will provide himself a lamb….  Remember providence means to provide.  Verses 9-12 tells us of the obedience of Abraham and the submission of Isaac.  In verse 13, we see God’s provision of a sacrifice.  The sacrifice was a ram, not a lamb.  God would provide a Lamb.    Nineteen hundred years later, a man, the God man, walked into the area where Abraham had offered Isaac.  Of this man, Jesus, John the Baptist proclaimed: Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world (John 1:29).  Friend, God has provided a Lamb of sacrifice for sinners.  You need the Lamb of God to take away your sin.  You need Jesus!

                        C.        There is another word that speaks of God’s knowing beforehand.  It is the word foreknowledge.  In God’s foreknowledge, He determined that Christ would die, must die for sinners (Acts 2:23-24).  Jesus died so men could live eternally.

 

CONCLUSION: In God’s providence, He has allowed you to hear the Gospel message.  Receive Him today.

Southern Homogeneity

 

by Dr.  H. Rondel Rumburg

 

Can we ever get it back?  Get back what?  The unity of the Southern people. Can we ever get it back?  In a day in which many Southerners are ashamed of their accent, their linage, their Southernness, their roots and their culture, sadly this litany could be carried further, hopefully not infinitum.  Have we violated God’s requirement to “Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise?”  Reconstruction, or should one say deconstruction, has surely make some spiteful inroads into our homogeneity.  However, there is a sense of this homogeneity in most persons of Southern ancestry.  When we meet folks we still ask about their kin and their nativity.  We do this instinctively or culturally.  We still have our sense of kith and kin.  At times this is evidenced by brotherly scrapping with one another, but hopefully standing together against our enemies.  True Southerners should stand up for each other when others would seek to rob us of our character or defame the good name of our Confederate and Colonial forefathers.  Yea, our anti-federalists fathers such as Patrick Henry.

Sometimes it is difficult for Southern people to understand the oneness of the South prior the War of Northern Aggression or Lincoln’s War for Southern Genocide.  That oneness perhaps was the reason so few could stand up against so many for so long.  Dr. Basil L. Gildersleeve, a Confederate and foremost classical scholar of his day, explained it this way, “The Virginia farmer and the Creole planter of Louisiana were of different strains; and yet there was a solidarity that has never failed to surprise the few Northerners who penetrated the South for study and pleasure.  There was an extraordinary ramification of family and social ties throughout the Southern States, and a few minutes’ conversation sufficed to place any member of the social organism from Virginia to Texas.”  The Christian nature of the family in the South had a great impact on this homogeneity.  Judith B. McGuire, a refugee during the war, reflected on this oneness when in her diary she wrote, “It is delightful to see the unanimity of feeling, the oneness of heart, which pervades Virginia at this time; and we believe it is so throughout the South.” 

There was a continuity and solidarity that marked the Southern culture at that time.  This was why the Southern people could resist an overwhelming enemy for so long.  The unity of purpose was evident and clearly so when the Southern literature of the era is consulted.  Another example was Randolph H. McKim, the Confederate Soldier and Chaplain, who in A Soldier’s Recollections asserted, “True, we Maryland boys had no home waiting to open its doors to us during our furlough, but the Virginians always gave us a peculiarly warm welcome, and, because we were exiles, did their best to make us feel that their homes were ours.  The soldiers of the Union were well clothed and well fed, but they could never have such a welcome as we had, or be such heroes as we were when they went on furlough, because there was no such solidarity of feeling in the North as there was in the South.  The condition of the two peoples was entirely different.  The Southern soldier was fighting to repel invasion.  He was regarded as the defender of the homes and firesides of the people.  The common perils, the common hardships, the common sacrifices, of the war, welded the Southern people together as if they were all of the same blood, all of one family.  In fact, there was, independently of the war, a homogeneity in the South that the North knew nothing of.  But when the war came all this was intensified.  We were all of one family then.  Every Confederate soldier was welcomed, wherever he went, to the best the people had.”

The Christian faith was a vital element in our homogeneity.  As the hymn noted,      

 

                      Blest be the tie that binds

                      Our hearts in Christian love:

                      The fellowship of kindred minds

                      Is like to that above.

 

Most of the major Christian denominations in the South broke from their national organizations and formed Southern churches, thus denominations were divided between the North and the South.  Actually some of these denominations had broken ties before the War of Northern Imperialism began.  The exceptional insight of John C. Calhoun gave the importance of the ties or cords that bound us as a people, and this was disclosed in his last speech, written in 1850.  Calhoun’s health would not allow him to deliver the speech so another delivered it for him to the U. S. Senate on March 4, 1850.  He dealt with the cords that bound the States together.  He asserted that the first cords

 

… are spiritual or ecclesiastical; some political; others social.”  And in that rather lengthy speech he declared, “The strongest of those of a spiritual and ecclesiastical nature, consisted in the unity of the great religious denominations, all of which originally embraced the whole Union….  Beginning with smaller meetings, corresponding with the political divisions of the country, their organization terminated in one great central assemblage, corresponding very much with the character of Congress.  At these meetings the principal clergymen and lay members of the respective denominations, from all parts of the Union, met to transact business relating to their common concerns.  It was not confined to what appertained to the doctrines and discipline of the respective denominations, but extended to plans for disseminating the Bible, establishing missionaries, distributing tracts, and of establishing presses for the publication of tracts, newspapers, and periodicals, with a view of diffusing religious information, and for the support of the doctrines and creeds of the denomination.  All this combined contributed greatly to strengthen the bonds of the Union.  The strong ties which held each denomination together formed a strong cord to hold the whole Union together….

 

This speech revealed the grounds of unity and the agitation of abolitionists who sought to destroy the country for their own ends.  He was contending with such men as William Lloyd Garrison, a radical abolitionist, who had said, “This Union is a lie!  The American Union is an imposition—a covenant with death, and an agreement with hell!  I am for its overthrow!”  The abolitionists cared nothing for the Constitution until they could twist it to advantage.  Calhoun went on to describe the snapping of those cords of Union as a result of the abolitionist movement.  Disunion from the North meant the maintaining of union in the South and the Constitution as one can observe. This separation had already commenced before 1850. 

Calhoun noted,

 

The first of these cords which snapped, under its explosive force, was that of the powerful Methodist Episcopal Church.  The numerous and strong ties which held it together are all broken, and its unity gone.  They now form separate churches; and, instead of that feeling of attachment and devotion to the interests of the whole church which was formerly felt, they are now arrayed into two hostile bodies, engaged in litigation about what was formerly their common property.

The next cord that snapped was that of the Baptists, one of the largest and most respectable of the denominations.  That of the Presbyterian is not entirely snapped, but some of its strands have given way.  That of the Episcopal Church is the only one of the four great Protestant denominations which remains unbroken and entire.

 

This was the situation in 1850.  As should be noted the last two denominations mentioned would sever relations with the Northern branch of their denominations in 1861.

Calhoun was farsighted and believed that the perpetuation of the abolitionist agitation “will finally snap every cord, when nothing will be left to hold the States together except force.”  Calhoun was correct.  He continued by asserting that force could not, with propriety of language, be called a Union.  One would be forced to question the depiction of a gun in one’s face as unity.  He explained further, “It may, indeed, keep them connected; but the connection will partake much more of the character of subjugation … than the union of free, independent, and sovereign States, in one confederation, as they stood in the early stages of the Government, and which only is worthy of the sacred name of Union.”

What has reconstruction brought to us except participation in a dying culture and the destruction of our heritage along with the disfigurement of the Constitution?  Hopefully we can get Southern homogeneity back!  Our forefathers were right in their resistance against tyranny in 1776 and 1861.  Rev. Gen. Wm. Nelson Pendleton related that General Lee referred to the beginning of the Southern struggle for independence and said, in substance, that he had never believed that, with the vast power against us, we could win our independence unless we were aided by foreign powers.  “But,” added Lee, “such considerations really made no difference with me.”  And then he uttered those memorable words: “We had, I was satisfied, sacred principles to maintain and rights to defend, for which we were in duty bound to do our best, even if we perished in the endeavor.”   

     The folks around whom we live, the children born into our homes, and the people our lives impact need to be informed as to our true history and the necessity of our being one people again.  We need to have the sense of the sacred principles that our forefathers had.  Perhaps we should pray in the same form as our Confederate forefathers, “Wilt Thou not revive us again: that Thy people may rejoice in Thee” (Psalm 85:6).

 Reasons for Memorial Day

 

Mark W. Evans, Chaplain

 

      This spring, all across the Southland, heritage organizations will gather to honor the Confederate warrior.  These memorial services seem out of place in a generation demanding change — change that is blind to the past and to the future.   Guilt may have something to do with this deviant spirit.  History sheds light upon the consequences of sin — an unpleasant topic for sinners.  The future, likewise, brings annoying thoughts of coming judgment.  It is easier for the guilty conscience to live for the moment.  In contrast, those resting in God’s forgiveness through faith alone in the saving work of Christ, strive to fulfill their duties and have God’s assurance that their labors are not in vain.  To them, the past and the future are worthy of diligent consideration.

    Our Confederate ancestors also treasured history, and they trusted God for the future.  They knew why the colonies had fought for liberty and resisted the mightiest nation on earth.   Like their Revolutionary War forefathers, they recognized tyranny when it appeared and fought to deliver Dixie from its clutches.  Today, we look back at their struggle to glean inspiration and guidance.  We must never surrender our God-given rights.  The South’s struggle for [AFRICAN SLAVERY???]individual freedom, states’ rights, and limited, central government, strengthens our resolve to contend for the same principles.  When we gather to remember our brave relatives, we perpetuate the truth of history and bring hope for the future.  We prepare the next generation to stand firm upon eternal principles that made our ancestors unflinching in the fight against tyranny.  Here are some reasons why we gather each year to remember the defenders of the Southland. 

 

THE GLORY OF GOD

 

    Our memorial services glorify God.  We acknowledge His sovereign control over all things.  It was not by chance that the conflict raged.  Our hearts learn afresh of those who “out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens” (Hebrews 11:34).  We remember the gracious work of the Almighty, who poured out a heavenly revival upon the Southern armies.  Truly, God was there and upheld Dixie through the fiery trial.  The steadfastness and courage of opponents to Northern aggression bring glory to Him who provided the Biblical foundation for their cause.  He is the same God who cares for us today.  The struggle ended in a military surrender, but the righteous cause continues.  “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).

 

DUTY

 

    When we gather to honor our ancestors, we heed the fifth commandment:  “Honor thy father and thy mother:  that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee” (Exodus 20:12).  We must not forget the fierce struggle of our grandparents.   Their example goes deeper than facts of history.  We are their descendants.  We emulate their virtues, perpetuate their principles, and honor their memory. 

 

TESTIMONY

 

    Our memorial services provide a testimony to the true history of the South.  Revisionists of history have slandered our heritage with arrogant contempt.  Honoring our Confederate dead corrects the record.  Our God “cannot lie” (Titus 1:2).  He will honor the truth and ultimately prevail against all falsehood.  Isaiah the prophet said:  “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.   This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord” (Isaiah 54:17).   

 

OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN

 

    When we meet to honor our Confederate ancestors, we instill a blessed memory in the hearts of our children and grandchildren.  The glory of their heritage and the principles of their Southern forefathers provide a foundation for life.  The truth planted in their hearts will serve as a moral compass to direct their steps. 

 

OUR RENEWAL OF DEDICATION TO THE SOUTHERN CAUSE

 

    Finally, when we gather at our memorial services, we are moved to remain faithful to the Southern cause.  If ever there were a time to renew our zeal, it is now.  The Christian teachings that bring eternal life and moral uprightness are under attack.  Marxism is striking at the vitals of our constitutional republic.  We are witnessing the fulfillment of the warnings of our Confederate forefathers.  However, we know that “the eternal God is our refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” (Deut. 33:27).  Shortly after the war, Robert L. Dabney, who served as General “Stonewall” Jackson’s chief-of-staff, gave the following exhortation to students at Davidson College:

 

We are a beaten, conquered people, gentlemen, and yet if we are true to ourselves, we have no cause for humiliation, however much for deep sorrow.  It is only the atheist who adopts success as the criterion of right.  It is not a new thing in the history of men that God appoints to the brave and true the stern task of contending and falling in a righteous quarrel.  Would you find the grandest of all names upon the roll of time?  You must seek them among this “noble army of martyrs,” whose faith in God and the right was stronger than death and defeat.  — We have no need, sirs, to be ashamed of our dead; let us see to it that they be not ashamed of us.  They have won the happier fate, “taken away from the evil to come, they have entered into their uprightness.”  To us they have bequeathed the sterner trial of asserting, by our unshaken fortitude under overthrow, the principles which they baptized with their blood.  Let the same spirit which nerved them to do, nerve us to endure for the right; and they will not disdain our companionship on the rolls of fame [Discussions, vol. IV, p. 120]

A CONFEDERATE [not SOUTHRON!!!] SERMON

 

John Albert Broadus (1827–1895) was a Southern Baptist pastor and professor at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  He would later serve as Southern’s second President.  Broadus was elected to Southern’s first faculty.  Prior to the seminary’s closing with the outbreak of war, Broadus drew a single student to his homiletics class. Rather than canceling the class, Broadus lectured to his lone pupil week after week.  The material delivered in the lectures later became the book The Preparation and Delivery of Sermons.   This text was one of the most influential homiletical texts of his day and has been regularly reprinted ever since.

Broadus was one of the most respected preachers of his day. Charles Haddon Spurgeon deemed Broadus the ‘greatest of living preachers.’  Noted Southern Baptist scholar, Dr. A. T. Robertson, declared regarding Broadus’ preaching: ‘It has been my fortune to hear Beecher and Phillips Brooks, Maclaren, Joseph Parker and Spurgeon, John Hall and Moody, John Clifford and David Lloyd George. At his best and in a congenial atmosphere Broadus was the equal of any man I have ever heard.’

Broadus served as a chaplain in the Army of Northern Virginia.  He had a standing invitation from Lee to preach for him.  The following message was presumably given by Broadus in observance of Confederate Memorial Day in 1886.

 

THE CONFEDERATE DEAD.

Address at Cave Hill Cemetery, Louisville, Kentucky, May 22, 1886.

 

IT is a long time since the war—part of a thousand years. And many changes have come. We hear much as to the wonders of our age, but to me the greatest of them all is the rapid restoration of good feeling in this country. You young people cannot imagine how we felt twenty-five years ago. And I am heartily glad you cannot. But to-day we meet beside the graves of our heroic dead without one thought or feeling of bitterness toward those who sleep yonder. As Pitt and Fox after their life-time of conflict, sleep in peace together in Westminster Abbey, so here the Confederate dead on the slope and the Union dead on the summit of the same hill, the men who twenty years ago were engaged in the vastest and most terrible civil conflict that ever occurred on earth. Thank God that now all is peace! It is due partly to the mobile character of our people; partly to the ample resources of our great country, giving to all employment and hope, and partly, notwithstanding all our imperfection and short-coming, to the influence of Christianity. The great religion of peace has healed the wounds and softened the asperities of the great civil war. [???]

It is useless now to raise the question who was right. [???] Perhaps in some respects each side would now acknowledge that the other was nearest right; perhaps in some respects both sides were wrong. Whenever the “impartial historian” arises—he has not arisen yet; certainly he has not published anything in the Century Magazine or in the Personal Recollections of any statesman or soldier—and if he should speak out now, he would probably offend both sides, or else would be neglected as tame and dull—but when he arises he may possibly hold that one side was nearest right according to document and argument, and the other according to the slowly changing condition of our national affairs. Of one thing I feel certain, neither side can claim any monopoly of good intentions, of patriotic aims, nor even of wisdom.

The side that triumphs is not always thereby proven to have been superior in wisdom. We were concerned in one of those mighty movements in human affairs which transcend all the penetration and judgment of the greatest individual minds. We ordinary people can today see meanings in that struggle which the greatest statesmen did not perceive when it began. And, of course, the end is not yet; it will be better understood hereafter. But this much is plain—the war had to come. The necessity for it was written in the whole history of the republic and of the colonies—yea, in the history of England for centuries past. It was written in the configuration and climate, the soil and productions of different parts of our continent. It was written on the flag of the first ship that brought African slaves to the English Colonies of North America. It had to come. The splendid eloquence and noble patriotism of the world-famous statesman of Kentucky, aided by others of like mind, delayed it for a time. The madness of some men doubtless hastened it; but with human nature as it is, the war had to come sooner or later. And we can see now that there were two great questions which imperatively required to be settled.

A certain point as to the character of the Federal Government our fathers failed to define, apparently because they could not agree. That point the war has practically settled forever. A certain great social institution, grown into portentous and tremendous proportions, had fallen under the ban of the civilized world, and, sooner or later, somehow or other, it must cease to be. I verily believe that it is worth all our dreadful financial losses, all the sufferings of the long and frightful conflict, yea, and the blood of our precious dead, to have those two questions flung behind us forever. [???]

Well, then, did our buried heroes die in vain? Their side of the conflict was the side appointed to fail, but it does not follow that they died in vain.

The great struggle has preserved the self-respect of the Southern people. At a time when we believed that our rights were sorely endangered we could not have tamely yielded merely to avoid’ suffering and loss, and continued to respect ourselves. ‘Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all. And it is better to have been brave and beaten than never to have been brave at all, at a time when every instinct and sentiment and principle of manhood clamored its demand that men should stand for what they honestly believed to be truth and right. The graves of our fallen soldiers make it possible that this generation and the coming generations of the Southern people should feel no shame in consequence of their defeat.

The war has established mutual respect, and opened the way for mutual good-will between the long hostile sections of our great country. The Northern and Southern people underestimated each other’s manhood; despised each other. But they feel so no longer, especially those of them who actually met in the imminent and deadly breach. There is kinder feeling on both sides now than would have been possible had our difficulties been settled in any other way. [???]

And this has enabled the defeated combatants to yield a cordial and faithful devotion to the National Government, such as could not have existed if things had taken any other course. I make bold to say, however an occasional unwise utterance may misrepresent us, that many of the most sincere and earnestly faithful supporters of this great Union to-day are among the men who once did their level best to break the Union in twain.

No, the dead have not lived or died in vain, if the survivors know aught of right thought and right feeling. They are a power among us to-day. “A living dog,” the wise man hath said, “is better than a dead lion.” Yes, but even a living lion is nothing in comparison with a dead man. In proportion as he lived and died with a true manhood, his memory is cherished and proves a blessing to those who survived and those who come after. There are fathers buried here whose children do not remember to have seen them; yet the glorified memory of the father, as often depicted by the widowed mother, has become to those children the very glass in which to dress themselves, the model of all that is noblest in human character and life.

I was thinking not long ago concerning that greatest of all the poems ever written in memory of the dead, in which Tennyson has so well depicted the mental struggles and responded to the religious longings of our troubled age. Did it ever occur to you that two wonderfully-gifted young men went to the production of that great poem,—one who died to be its subject, the other who lived to compose it? He who died must have been a man of extraordinary powers and promise, in order to make so profound an impression, and turn all the poet’s deepest thought and feeling for so long a time into pathetic memories of him. And if our noble young men have died in vain, it must be our fault.

Let us teach ourselves and our children to draw inspiration from these graves. As on this bright evening the little ones scatter flowers on the mounds, let us all resolve afresh to live worthy of the men who are buried here.

 

“Thus, though oft depressed and lonely,

All my fears are laid aside,

If I but remember only

Such as these have lived and died.”

 Book Review

 

Soldiers of the Cross: Confederate Soldier-Christians and the Impact of War on Their Faith

by Kent T. Dollar,

Reviewed by Byron Snapp.

Mercer University Press. 2005, 253 pages in hardback.

 

How did Christianity impact the lives of confederate soldiers who confessed Christ as their Savior?  The author answers this question by examining the writings of nine soldiers.  These men were from throughout the South.  They had different backgrounds, but all were educated and had the time and means to keep a journal. 

 

The author reveals glimpses of their hopes and fears in the midst of the War and in the post-war days of seven men.  Two lost their lives during the War.  Eight were Protestants and the ninth was a Roman Catholic.  A number were mature Christians when they entered the War.  Some joined shortly after they confessed Christ as their Lord and Savior in a local church.  The rest became Christians during the conflict.  All grew in their faith despite the temptations that camp life afforded, alongside the horrors of fiery battle and the sight of newly fallen comrades.

 

The author incorporates many quotes from their diaries and letters to loved ones to show how they faced the atrocities of war. 

 

A married man carried the additional burden of keeping his wife’s eyes on the Lord as she considered the very real possibility of his death.  General William Pendleton had to face the death of his son, the loss of his Lexington, Virginia, pastorate, and the possible displacement of his family from their parsonage.  All had to come to terms with a growing reality–the South was being defeated.  Against these odds, the faith of each was unwavering and, in fact, growing.  There was a deepening of the men’s prayer lives and an increased trust in God’s providence.  There was a growing interest in heaven and in evangelism of fellow soldiers.  Protestants put denominational differences aside and worshiped God across denominational lines.

 

Post-war writings show that their faith continued to be evidenced.  All became involved in local churches.  A number were in leadership positions.  Edward Guerrant became a Presbyterian evangelist.  Giles Cooke became the principal of the first African-American public school in Petersburg.  He later pastored African-Americans at the cost of a number of friendships.  These men were sinners.  They were men of their times.  All, however, were committed to living out their faith in war and peace in a fallen world.

 

The insights of nine men do not provide a basis for conclusive data as to the overall impact of Christianity during and after the War.  Nevertheless, this volume shows the impact of religion on specific men.  We see faith strengthened in the midst of danger and faith persevering in the unthinkable (in their eyes)–the South losing. They continued to believe that God reigns for His glory and has a purpose in His every action. 

 

One should not infer from the book’s title that these men saw themselves as fighting a war to preserve Christianity.  They viewed the War as one of self-defense of their new country–the confederacy.

 

This volume provides encouragement for our faith.  We can realize anew that God is faithful to His promises.  He who brings people to Himself through Christ’s work alone will keep them in that faith.

 

Those who enjoy studying this War will find this book rewarding.  It should be of interest to any Christian who enjoys reading about the impact of Christianity in the lives of others.

 

*****

 We must remember who we are and what we must be about:

The SCV Challenge by Lt. Gen. S. D. Lee

 

To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the cause for which we fought.  To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier’s good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations.

 Chaplain’s Handbook

  

Sons of Confederate Veterans

 

What a pleasure it is to continue to remind you of the Chaplain’s Handbook.  Our Past Commander-in-Chief Sweeney, your Past Chaplain-in-Chief and others have highly recommended this tool.  This volume will be of help and benefit.  Any person who loves Southern History will appreciate this volume.  Not only will this book be of great value to the Chaplains of the SCV or the UDC, but it will be of help to any who speak at memorial services, Lee/Jackson banquets, etc.   Much of the material is from the period of 1861-1865.  There are period weddings, funerals, prayers, hymns, etc.

There is an excellent chapter on Camp Chaplains in the volume.  This chapter should be of personal help to local camp chaplains.

            The Chaplain’s Handbook is a hardback book bound in gray cloth.  The volume is printed on acid free paper, printed in signatures that are sewn, 131 pages long, and measures 5 ¼ by 7 ¼ inches.  Thus, the book is produced in a form much like books of the Confederate era.  The book can be purchased from headquarters (http://.scv.org) or from biblicalandsouthernstudies.com.

WC2002-CRO-MEX-FAN

Apr 10, 1941:
Croatia declares independence
On this day in 1941, the German and Italian invaders of Yugoslavia set up the Independent State of Croatia (also including Bosnia and Herzegovina) and place nationalist leader Ante Pavelic’s Ustase, pro-fascist insurgents, in control of what is no more than a puppet Axis regime.

Croatia’s Serbs gave sporadic resistance, but it was the communist partisans, led by Josip Broz Tito (a Croat himself), who provided antifascist leadership. By 1944, most of Croatia–apart from the main cities–was liberated from Axis forces, and Croats joined partisan ranks in large numbers. As the war neared its end, however, many Croats, especially those who had been involved with the Ustase regime or who had opposed the communists, sought refugee status with the Allies. But British commanders handed them over to the partisans, who slaughtered tens of thousands, including civilians, on forced marches and in death camps.

Confederate “Heritage” Month, April 6: What did the Confederacy stand for?
 By Bruce Miller -
The University of North Carolina provides a great online source of historical documents relating to the history of slavery and secession in its Documenting the American South project.
One of the many documents reproduced there is a pamphlet with the ponderous title, The Philosophy of Secession; A Southern View, Presented in a Letter Addressed to the Hon. Mr. Perkins of Louisiana, in Criticism on the Provisional Constitution Adopted by the Southern Congress at Montgomery, Alabama by Leonidas W. Spratt, editor of the Charleston Mercury, dated February 13, 1861. My emphases in these quotes are bolded. Some of the words at the UNC site appear in red to signal misspellings, but it’s not entirely clear whether the error is in the original or the Web version, though it seems to be the former. I’ve retained the red error markings.
He begins his pamphlet:

The South is now in the formation of a Slave Republic. This, perhaps, is not admitted generally. There are many contented to believe that the South as a geographical section is in mere assertion of its independence; that, it is instinct with no especial truth–pregnant of no distinct social nature; that for some unaccountable reason the two sections have become opposed to each other; that for reasons equally insufficient, there is disagreement between the peoples that direct them; and that from no overrulling necessity, no impossibility of co-existence, but as mere matter of policy, it has been considered best for the South to strike out for herself and establish an independance of her own. This, I fear, is an inadequate conception of the controversy.

Spratt was not presenting a quirky or dissenting view. He was a supporter of secession. And he states straightforwardly in the first line of this publication what he saw to be the purpose of secession and the ABOLITION war its supporter knew was almost certain to follow: the defense of the Peculiar Institution of slavery.

 

[THE JOYS OF NEGROID MIS-RULE ...]
Africa’s Forever Wars
Why the continent’s conflicts never end.
BY JEFFREY GETTLEMAN | MARCH/APRIL 2010
What we are seeing is the decline of the classic African liberation movement and the proliferation of something else — something wilder, messier, more violent, and harder to wrap our heads around. If you’d like to call this war, fine. But what is spreading across Africa like a viral pandemic is actually just opportunistic, heavily armed banditry. My job as the New York Times’ East Africa bureau chief is to cover news and feature stories in 12 countries. But most of my time is spent immersed in these un-wars.
I’ve witnessed up close — often way too close — how combat has morphed from soldier vs. soldier (now a rarity in Africa) to soldier vs. civilian. Most of today’s African fighters are not rebels with a cause; they’re predators. That’s why we see stunning atrocities like eastern Congo’s rape epidemic, where armed groups in recent years have sexually assaulted hundreds of thousands of women, often so sadistically that the victims are left incontinent for life. What is the military or political objective of ramming an assault rifle inside a woman and pulling the trigger? Terror has become an end, not just a means.

 

[OUR ANCESTORS KNEW WHAT WHITE RULE WAS DESIGNED TO PREVENT.  WHY DO OUR OWN DENY IT NOW??? IF'N IT WEREN'T ABOUT SLAVERY, THEN WHY DID VIRGINIA MENTION ONLY "the Federal Government, having perverted said powers, not only to the injury of the People of Virginia, but to the oppression of the Southern Slaveholding States." IN OUR Declaration of Causes of Seceding States SLAVERY IS CLEARLY THE PRIMARY ISSUE: "The People of Georgia having dissolved their political connection with the Government of the United States of America, present to their confederates and the world the causes which have led to the separation. For the last ten years we have had numerous and serious causes of complaint against our non-slave-holding confederate States with reference to the subject of African slavery."  &  Mississippi: "Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery-- the greatest material interest of the world."  &  South Carolina: "We affirm that these ends for which this Government was instituted have been defeated, and the Government itself has been made destructive of them by the action of the non-slaveholding States. Those States have assume the right of deciding upon the propriety of our domestic institutions; and have denied the rights of property established in fifteen of the States and recognized by the Constitution; they have denounced as sinful the institution of slavery; they have permitted open establishment among them of societies, whose avowed object is to disturb the peace and to eloign the property of the citizens of other States. They have encouraged and assisted thousands of our slaves to leave their homes; and those who remain, have been incited by emissaries, books and pictures to servile insurrection."  &  ESPECIALLY Texas: "She was received as a commonwealth holding, maintaining and protecting the institution known as negro slavery-- the servitude of the African to the White race within her limits-- a relation that had existed from the first settlement of her wilderness by the White race, and which her People intended should exist in all future time." !!!

[WE NEED MORE SOUTHRON FAMILIES TO HAVE MORE SOUTHRON BABIES --- Y'ALL DO THE MATH!!!]
Sexual Liberation & Racial Suicide

F. Roger Devlin
An address given at The Occidental Quarterly Editor’s Dinner on October 30, 2008 in Atlanta, Georgia.

What is “sexual liberation”? It is usually spoken of by way of contrast with the constraints of marriage and family life. It would seem to be a condition under which people have more choice than under the traditional system of monogamy. Hugh Hefner’s “Playboy philosophy” seemed to offer men more choices than just sleeping with the same woman every night for fifty years. Feminism promised women it would liberate them from “domestic drudgery” and turn marriage and motherhood into just one among many lifestyle choices.

On the other hand, there was always an element of free choice even regarding marriage: one may choose whether, and to a certain extent whom, one will marry. Indeed, marriage is perhaps the most important example of a momentous life choice. But on the traditional view you cannot make your choice and still have it. Once one takes the vow and enters into the covenant, ipso facto one no longer has a choice. In other words, marriage is a one-way nonrefundable ticket. Your wife is your choice even if she eventually displeases you in certain ways, as all mortal wives necessarily must. Keeping your choice of mate open forever is called “celibacy.”

Ultimately, the ideal of sexual liberation rests upon a philosophical confusion which I call the absolutizing of choice. The illusion is that society could somehow be ordered to allow us to choose without thereby diminishing our future options. Birth control, abortion, the destigmatizing of fornication and homosexuality, arbitrary and unilateral divorce—all these have been pitched to us as ways of expanding our choices.

Now, I am in favor of giving people all the choice they can stand. But I would like to be careful about what this means: analysis will reveal that the term “choice” has distinct and partly contradictory senses which may not be equally applicable in all contexts. In other words, choice is not a single thing which can be expanded indefinitely at no cost; the appearance of greater choice in one area can be shown to entail reducing one’s possibilities in another.

But not everyone is equally receptive to this kind of message. Women in parts of West Africa are averaging over eight children apiece. The revolt against marriage and childrearing is an overwhelmingly White phenomenon. It is primarily in White countries that the birthrate has fallen below replacement level. It would behoove racially conscious Whites, therefore, not to ignore the sexual side of the revolt against our civilization, nor shortsightedly to limit our attention to the single issue of miscegenation. The homosexual bathhouse view of sex as merely a means to personal pleasure attacks our race from within and at its source. As much as with inimical races and racial ideologies, our survival will depend upon our ability to organize effective resistance.

When we look around at all the forces arrayed against our race, it can be daunting. How can we fight them all? Are circumstances right? Would we be ready even if they were? And what to do in the meantime? The situation becomes a lot less daunting when we realize that the first battle, and the first victory, must take place within ourselves.

“Give me a good force of cavalry and I will take them safely across the Mississippi and if you desire to go in that direction, it will give me great pleasure to escort you.  My own mind is made up.  As to my course, I shall fight as long as my government remains in existence, when that ceases to live I shall seek some other country, for I shall never take the oath of allegiance.”
~ General Wade Hampton to President Jefferson Davis, April 1865

Apr 3, 1865:
Richmond captured
The Rebel capital of Richmond falls to the Union, the most significant sign that the Confederacy is nearing its final days.

Now, the Yankees came to take possession of their prize. One resident, Mary Fontaine, wrote, “I saw them unfurl a tiny flag, and I sank on my knees, and the bitter, bitter tears came in a torrent.” As the Federals rode in, another wrote that the city’s black residents were
“completely crazed, they danced and shouted, men hugged each other, and women kissed.” Among the first forces into the capital were black troopers from the 5th Massachusetts Cavalry, and the next day President APE Lincoln visited the city. For the residents of Richmond, these were symbols of a world turned upside down. It was, one reporter noted, “…too awful to remember, if it were possible to be erased, but that cannot be.”

Causes of Confederate Defeat in the SECESSION War

Encyclopedia Virginia:
The surrender of Confederate general Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865, effectively ended the American SECESSION War (1861–1865). But why did Lee surrender? And why in the spring of 1865? Historians have argued over the answers to these questions since that day at Appomattox. Explanations for Confederate defeat in the ABOLITION War can be broken into two categories: some historians argue that the Confederacy collapsed largely because of social divisions within Southern society, while others emphasize the Union’s military defeat of Confederate armies. These arguments are not mutually exclusive—no historian would deny that Southern society was riven by racial, class, gender, and regional antagonisms and, similarly, all historians recognize the enormous force brought to bear by Northern armies and the high casualties suffered by Confederate soldiers. Nonetheless, the disagreement has produced sharply different explanations for why the War FER SOUTHERN INDEPENDENCE ended as it did.

[WAKE UP, SOUTHERN MAN!!!]
The Swastika Scandals & their Meaning

Gregory Hood -
It is the ultimate Jewish nightmare. And it will never go away.
Deep within the heart of every white male (especially Southerners) it lurks. Sure, they try to cover it up. The goys are crafty like that. They do so much to hide their real nature.

The thing is… there’s something to it. This is not an apology for National Socialism – as an American white nationalist, I favor a more libertarian form of government more in line with our own national tradition and I am opposed to state repression and the murder of innocent people. However, given the sorry standard of behavior that most American whites practice, there is something both shocking and seductive about National Socialist symbolism, a creed of iron that motivated whites to pursue their own will to power. It is hard not to sympathize at least somewhat it when one views the sad spectacle of the white cultural elite today. Moreover, as the goalposts are continuously moved to the left, it is simply impossible to be a “moderate” white racial patriot. Even if you don’t support Hitler or even despise him, even if you are an outright Zionist, if you recognize race exists and do not favor the genocide of your own, you are a Nazi by today’s standards. National Socialist symbolism in the eyes of the public is less tied to a particular Central European ideology and more associated with “white pride” generally, with George Lincoln Rockwell serving as the obvious bridge between these ideas. And as we all know, the one thing, the only thing, this system cannot allow under any circumstances is the white race realizing their own existence and resisting the campaign of genocide waged against them.

[OUR ANCESTORS KNEW EXACTLY WHAT WAS A COMIN', JUST LOOK @ THE ""WHITE"" HOUSE IN ANNO DOMINI 2010 ...]

A House Divided – The Winter of Secession
Humanities
Just another Musupperpump.com Blogs weblog

“A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half-slave and half-free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved – I do not expect the house to fall – but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.” Lincoln’s ‘House-Divided’ Speech in Springfield, Illinois, June 16, 1858. 

Lincoln’s speech during his campaign for president was, like many of his observations, both prescient and profound. Lincoln had expressed the feeling that had been fomenting in both the north and the South for almost three decades – that slavery had created a chasm between the two regions, setting the two at odds, and that this untenable situation could not continue much longer.

Whether or not because of his controversial “house divided” speech, Lincoln was elected to the presidency, along with the relatively new BLACK republican party, in 1860, an election that the Southern Slaveholding States took as a personal affront. The election of Lincoln and a whole slate of BLACK republican – and anti-slavery – candidates to congress meant that the institution of slavery was threatened as it had never been before. The delicate balance of northern and Southern interests in congress had been upset, and the Southern States could no longer be assured that their agendas would be protected in congress. Secession began to look more and more viable.

Many in the South perceived Lincoln’s “house divided” speech as a declaration of war – a war on slavery. A feeling of anger and disenfranchisement suffused the South the winter following lincoln’s election, a winter that was to become the Winter of Secession, which began almost as soon as Lincoln was elected, was ushered in by the South Carolina Secession Convention, which convened in December of 1860. By December 24, South Carolina adopted the “declaration of the immediate causes which induce and justify the secession of south Carolina from the federal union,” and in effect left the union.

The declaration adopted by South Carolina outlined the legality of the decision to secede, while also delineating the reasons for secession, among them the north’s refusal to abide by the fugitive slave act, which was seen as an affront to slaveowners throughout the south, the elevation of blacks to citizenship, and, most tellingly, the election of Lincoln, “because he has declared that ‘government cannot endure permanently half slave, half free,’ and that the public mind must rest in the belief that slavery is in the course of ultimate extinction.”

Lincoln’s “house divided” speech had touched a nerve in the South. While Lincoln’s meaning may have been misunderstood, Southerners took his words to mean that as president, Lincoln would not allow his house – the union – to stand divided, and would abolish slavery if need be. The chasm, the division between the States that had been widening for years had now become unbridgeable. and true to Lincoln’s words, the house divided against itself did not stand, did not endure half-slave and half-free.

Falkland Islands: from poverty and invasion to wealth and security
From The Times

 When the Argentinians invaded the Falklands in 1982 they found an impoverished community of less than 1,800 people scraping a hard living on the windswept hills, largely from sheep farming. There were few roads and the islands had no international airport and only a handful of Royal Marines to guard them.

Today, as Argentina again threatens to blockade the seas around the islands, it will meet determined resistance from a population that has almost doubled, a thriving, modern infrastructure, international economic links and a formidable British garrison permanently stationed on a purpose-built airbase that includes four jet fighters and more than a thousand troops.

The changes are largely the result of the invasion and Britain’s determination never again to leave the archipelago isolated and unprotected. For whereas in the 1970s most Falklanders were farmers working for the Falkland Islands Company, an old monopoly whose only real interest was the production of wool, today the islands have a rich, diversified self-sufficient economy. The Falklands stand on the brink of a potentially vast oil boom that could transform them into one of the wealthiest places on Earth.

Defence is no longer an amateur affair. After the conflict in 1982, there was strong local interest in establishing a territorial army, and its members still meet regularly. But the islands’ security is controlled from a base, established after 1982 next to the military airport at Mount Pleasant, about 40 miles from Stanley.

British troops are regularly rotated through the Falkands, which serves as an invaluable training centre both for the Army — practising the gruelling route marches that were key to victory in 1982 — and for pilots who have ample opportunity, with few restrictions, for low-flying practice.

Much of today’s wealth has come from the seas. In 1986 the islands established a 150-mile fishing zone, and bought vessels to patrol it. The Southern Ocean is rich in some sea life, especially squid, much sought after in the Far East, and foreign fleets pay large sums for fishing rights. In good years these have yielded £22 million — a sum that allows the Falkland Islands Government (by far the biggest employer) to provide generous social care and modern infrastructure.

Fishing income has fallen to £16 million this year, but still provides about a third of the annual income of £42.4 million. The potential from the vast oilfields under the seas could transform the Falklands. But the local government has been very wary, anxious not to disrupt the economy or way of life by a sudden influx of oil workers and technical staff.

Almost all oil exploration work and supply will be kept offshore. Immigration will be carefully controlled, and exploration operations will be kept low-key. The last thing that the Falklands need is another Argentine invasion that could ruin the gains achieved since 1982.
