These highlights are from the Kindle version of Christian Nationalism by Andrew Torba.

The disappearance of nations would impoverish us no less than if all peoples were made alike, with one character, one face.  Nations are the wealth of mankind, they are its generalized personalities: the smallest of them has its own particular colors, and embodies a particular facet of God’s design.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Christianity is not limited to any race, ethnicity or culture (1 Cor. 12:13, Gal. 3:27-29). Therefore, Christian Nationalism cannot be limited to any race, ethnicity or culture.

Christendom has always supported secularity but not secularism. Secularity is understood as a functional separation between church and state, government and religion. However, this separation is not absolute. Under secularity, religion can still play a large role in government, and government is not used to quash religion’s role in society. That is not to be misunderstood as to say the church and the state are one and the same. Such a theocratic concept was not supported by our Lord (John 18:36). Christians are integralists not theocrats, in that we have always favored two separate institutions, one for religion (the church) and one for government (the state).

The first institution (the church) is a voluntary association. The second institution (the state) is a mandatory association, in that all must obey its laws. While the institutions are separate, the church may still influence the state under secularity. In contrast, Secularism is the absolute separation of church and state, wherein religion is expected to keep out of politics entirely, and wherever the government advances, religion must retreat. Since the government promoting secularism tends to advance everywhere, religion is often forced back into the four walls of a church building, and Christians are often told to keep their religious beliefs out of politics entirely.

These United States of America are a Union of different states, and not a “country” in the proper understanding of the word. Rather, the states themselves are countries, according to the proper understanding, each consenting to delegate some of their own sovereign powers to the federal government for the sake of forming a Union.

Christian Nationalism is a movement of rebuilding, reformation and revival. We are not trying to overthrow the existing state or even necessarily earn positions in its highest levels of power. We don’t need to because we are playing the long game and are busy building things that matter. The reality is that individual members of Congress and even Presidents have very little power to impact real substantive societal and culture change, but news networks, activist organizations, corporations, tech companies, education systems, and social networks sure do. So that is exactly what we are building: a parallel Christian society.

In many ways Christian Nationalists recognize the sobering reality that the existing secular liberal state cannot continue on the path it is on without inevitable self-destruction. We are not seeking to take command of a sinking ship, but rather we are building the ark alongside it in preparation for the coming rain.

Our primary goal is to build a parallel Christian society, economy, and infrastructure which will fill the vacuum of the failed secular state when it falls.

America is a Christian nation, but somewhere along the way our tolerance for evil allowed subversive agents of Satan to invade every facet of our country and culture. Our worldly institutions may have been temporarily conquered by secular humanists who hate God, but we worship a God who overcomes all worldly institutions.

So often we are called hateful by people who hate our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, so to them I say: yes I am hateful. I hate sin. I hate evil. I hate Satan and I hate the Antichrist. They will call our speech “hate speech” because we dare to speak the Truth of God’s Word. You’re a racist if you don’t hate yourself for the color of your skin. You’re a bigot if you don’t want men in dresses walking into the bathroom with your daughter. You’re an antisemite if you question sending Israel American taxpayer money to build their wall, while our own border is being invaded. 

Their shame words no longer hold any power over me and they should never again hold any power over you. Tolerance is NOT a Christian virtue. God has zero tolerance when it comes to sin, which corrupts our bodies, hearts, and minds. We are commanded to hate that which is evil.

Unfortunately many American Christians have adopted a secular human worldview. Instead of worshipping God, they worship idols in the form of celebrities, sports players, and even politicians. They are “Christian” in name only. They seek comfort and fleeting pleasure over the suffering and courage it takes to live an unapologetic and authentic Christian life. They are lukewarm Christians. We are here to tell you today that lukewarm Christianity is over. Christians need to rise up and proclaim the name of Jesus Christ the King of Kings to the world.

The tolerance of the generations before us has led to the subversive takeover of every facet of society and even our churches by the global elite. That does not mean that they cannot be defeated.

Anyone with even the most facile knowledge of the history of the American founding knows that the people who came and settled the North American continent were Christians who settled these lands explicitly as new Christian nations. From the Puritans who founded New England, the Anglicans who founded Virginia, the Catholics who founded Maryland, and even the heretical Christian sects like the Quakers founded Pennsylvania, the American colonies were established as Christian nations.

The reason the newly founded United States Federal Government was forbidden from establishing a national state church was that the majority of the individual states already had their own established churches. It was not because the framers of the U.S. Constitution were mid-wit agnostics—as the American public education system desperately tries to present them, but rather because the Baptists in Georgia and Congregationalists in New England and Catholics in Maryland did not want the Episcopalians in Virginia to set up Anglicanism as the established church in the US. The point of the Establishment Clause was to retain the distinctive Christian heritage of the American nation not to destroy it.

This is a spiritual battle and therefore we must use spiritual weapons to expose and fight the enemies of Truth, including when those enemies of Truth happen to be our brothers and sisters in Christ. We must lovingly and boldly rebuke Christians who reject Truth in favor of political allegiances and narratives and let God handle the rest.

Christianity and Judaism are totally distinct, incompatible, and irreconcilable religions. One religion believes Jesus Christ is the eternally begotten Son of God, the Second Person of the Trinity, the Divine Logos Made Flesh, and currently reigns over the earth at His Father’s right hand. The other believes that Jesus is merely a human being who is dead and suffering for eternity in hell. These are not minor differences, they are fundamental to the entire Christian and Jewish worldview, respectively.

Modern Judaism of the Babylonian Talmud was formed hundreds of years after faithful Jews and believing Gentiles were united to Jesus Christ. The Talmud is the lens through which modern Jews read and understand the Old Testament. Jesus Christ is the lens through which Christians read and understand the Old Testament. For Christians, Christ’s and His Holy-Spirit-inspired Apostles’ teaching—the New Testament—is authoritative alongside God’s Word in the Old Testament. Jews rejected Jesus and His Apostles, and in their rejection of Him formulated a false interpretation of the Old Testament that they hold to be as authoritative.

It is impossible to overstate the importance of the historic cataclysm that was the Destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD. That was God’s conclusive, final judgment on the Old Covenant.

The only thing that remained was the traditions of the scribes and the elders, the very traditions that were crafted to allow Israel to violate God’s Law, the very traditions Christ demanded Israel repent over, and the very traditions that provoked them to reject Him and put Him to death. That is what modern Judaism was formed out of.

Modern Judaism is a new religion created after the Old Covenant was destroyed. It is a faith that is built out of the codified traditions of the elders that Christ forcefully condemned.

Talmudic Judaism is a new religion made up by those who rejected Jesus Christ. It is not the precursor to Christianity; it postdates it. By using that term we are reinforcing the idea that their religion is just like ours except they don’t believe in Jesus yet, when in reality it is a new religion formed out of the total rejection of the Son of God.

We have seen the fruits–or lack thereof–of our nation being led by pagans, nonbelievers, Talmudic and secular Jews, and fake Christians-in-name-only. Now it is time for our nation to be led by wise Christian warriors who fear God, read their Bible, and will not bend the knee to the wicked Establishment class and ways of the world. In other words: we need Christian men who embrace their God-given masculine energy to conquer and lead. Currently we have weak and pathetic emasculated “Christian” men who embrace submissive feminine energy. That ends now.

The time for emasculated, retreatist, “tolerant” Christianity is over. We will not tolerate our destruction and persecution in our own countries. The time for being Christian in name only is over. Practice what you preach and live it. Lead by example. The time for attending a church that compromises on the Gospel and the work and life of Jesus Christ is over. Get yourself in a church that glorifies God instead of glorifying the world. The time for being a Christian wimp is over. Now is the time for a masculine, patriarchic, crusader “Jesus is King” Christian revival. We must refuse to accept or embrace the evils of critical race theory, cultural marxism, and “wokeness.” We must hate these things and all forms of evil that seek to destroy us. (Ps. 97:10) We must refuse to compromise on the Gospel and the teachings of Christ in the name of the false gods of “tolerance” and “acceptance” and “diversity.” We must protect all life, most especially the unborn and the innocence of our children. We must speak the truth in love and share the Gospel boldly. (Eph. 4:15, 6:19) We must expect to be persecuted and shunned for these things. (John 15:20)

No one in the entire history of the Christian church from Polycarp to Athanasius to Augustine to Anselm to Thomas Aquinas to Martin Luther to John Calvin to John Owen to Jonathan Edwards believed in something called the “rapture” or the concept of two second comings before Christ’s kingdom is established.

Before 1830, when John Nelson Darby invented the concept in a small sect in Great Britain, no Christian had ever heard of the “rapture.” Darby himself did not point to the historical development of his doctrine by anyone before himself. Darby spent his life promoting his completely new theological system, and a young American evangelical pastor and Confederate veteran, C.I. Scofield, adopted Darby’s system. Scofield also spent his life popularizing the brand new theology, publishing the Scofield Reference Bible in 1909 which was widely distributed among evangelical Christians in the United States.

Darby’s and Scofield’s new theology grew to gain widespread acceptance among evangelicals throughout the 20th Century. At the same time, the church’s influence on society and culture began to rapidly decline. The connection here makes sense: if everyone else thinks that the world is doomed to get worse, why invest your time, effort, and resources into trying to make it better? It might have produced more short-term urgency to save the lost, but if you are planting seeds you expect to be harvested any minute, they are not going to take deep roots, much less grow up to be redwoods.

There is an abundance of biblical evidence for Christ’s present reign over heaven and earth. And the strongest is in the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18): “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.’ Jesus is reigning already. He doesn’t have some authority over this world, He has all of it.

We can and must reclaim and maintain our townships, school boards, and counties. Then our state legislatures. Then the entire nation. In order to do so we must exit the beast system completely and build our own parallel Christian society, lying in wait for their system to collapse which is when the Godly infrastructure we have built will fill the vacuum. We must support, start, and grow Christian-owned businesses. We must stop using the technology tools of the enemy and start building and using our own.

Finally we must be prepared to wage a multi-generational spiritual war against the demonic anti-Christian worldviews that are dominating our culture and Western society. Our sons will have been through the Classics, all of Greek Philosophy, the entire Bible, and know how to build things with their hands, shoot guns, grow food, hunt, fish, lift weights, and start a business by the time they are 18. They will be fishers of men who fear and worship the King of kings and Lord of lords.

If you state that “America was founded as a Christian nation” you will immediately hear objections like “No, we have had separation of church and state” and “God and Christ are not even mentioned in the Constitution” and “the Founding Fathers were all Deists, not Christians.” Leaving aside for a moment the fact that these are all half truths at best, what you should notice about appeals to America’s supposed “secular heritage” is that it always starts around 1791. But American history did not begin when the Bill of Rights was ratified, it began over two centuries before there ever was a U.S. Constitution. Far from being the beginning of America, that period is actually the middle of the history of the American people.

Anti-Christian historians never draw attention to the fact that there had been Christians who founded explicitly Christian colonies in America since 1585, when the first Roanoke Colony was attempted. Yes, the colonies that were founded 200 years before the U.S Constitution was ratified were founded as Christian nations. Anti-Christian scholars and “experts” can balk all they want at “Christian Nationalism” but the historical record is as clear as the noonday sun on a cloudless day—the American colonies were not founded as secular, pluralistic nations where there was absolute religious freedom, but as Christian nations for Christian people governed by Christians where they would have freedom to practice the Christian religion.

The very first permanent settlement of what would become America was Roanoke, first settled in 1585, and then again in 1587.

Roanoke was not settled as some secular, unbelieving business venture, like it was a 16th Century Google, it was an attempt to expand the Christian kingdom of England into the New World. It was not a colony of atheistic anarchists, doing whatever was right in their own eyes. No, it was settled under the authority of the English Crown which itself was explicitly under the authority of Jesus Christ. The first American colony was an explicitly Christian nation.

In the 17th Century, England was undeniably an explicitly Christian nation. It had (and still has) an established church, the Church of England. There, however, remained many Christians who did not accept the theology and liturgical practices of the Anglican Church, which wielded the power of the Crown against such dissent. Among the dissenters were a Protestant group of English Calvinists called the Puritans. Some of the of the Puritans left England to establish a nation where they would be free to practice their Christian faith according to their convictions.

It is at this point that many deniers and distorters of America’s Christian founding would have you believe that the Pilgrims came to America to set up a pluralist society with absolute religious freedom, but such an idea is utterly preposterous. Like virtually all other Christians at the time, the Puritans didn’t want some secular, pluralistic society where religious faith was excluded from the public square. On the contrary, they wanted to establish an explicitly Christian nation. The governing document that they drew up upon landing at Plymouth in 1620, the Mayflower Compact very clearly and succinctly states their goal of establishing a Christian nation.

Those who claim that America did not have an explicitly Christian founding are either totally ignorant of the manifestly obvious facts of history or are willfully malicious liars and propagandists. Such people will rely on the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution, prohibiting the Federal Government from establishing a particular church as the national church of the United States, while neglecting the fact that the majority of states that ratified that amendment had established churches of their own and most had requirements that officeholders be Protestant Christians and affirm the divine inspiration of the Old and New Testament! The reason they didn’t want an established national church was not because they were 18th century Reddit atheists, but because their own states already had established churches and they didn’t want the new national government to interfere with that.

It is an indisputable fact of history that for at least the first 200 years of its existence, America was a Christian nation. Each of the 13 colonies were founded by explicitly Christian nations
as explicitly Christian colonies, for the purpose of advancing the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.
