Was Christ Politically Incorrect? Matt. 13:47-50
Many today will be offended by the answer to this question! The truth is, Yahshua-Christ was not politically correct in His day, nor are His teachings today! Sadly, His true message of the Kingdom of Heaven is so distorted entirely out of shape today that it is no longer recognizable. We are now living at a time in history when undoubtedly there are more religious charlatans concocting various devious heretical brews of poisonous dogma that would make even Frankenstein blush and cringe with envy.
This subject was brought to the fore during the year 2002 when my friend Tony Gonyer took exception to some of Ted R. Weiland’s remarks on one of Weiland’s audiocassette tapes entitled Some Basics, where Weiland apologizes for the other races by saying:
“... but that doesn’t mean that a non-Israelite cannot join himself to Yahweh, and partake – and why wouldn’t we want them to? Why wouldn’t we want the nations around to be serving our God?, and under His Laws? – so we could have commerce with those nations .... not only for my race but for their race as well? ... I have come to appreciate the other races and their individuality more since understanding this [Identity] message than before I understood it. God created everything to be good ... have you ever noticed the media always say we call the other races ‘mud people’? I have never in my life ever heard the term except in the media. Not amongst the people I preach to ... so why wouldn’t we want to embrace others into this message? ... If anything, we should be absolutely ashamed of ourselves because of our past reputation and our past history as a people and what we have squandered because of who we are. We should be ashamed of ourselves and our forefathers more than the rest of the races. They are wallowing in their sin because of our sin. Let’s just face it ...”
Then Weiland had the guts to ask Yahweh to bless his message! What ever happened to the passage, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith Yahweh, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you ...”, 2 Corinthians 6:17.
The other races are “unclean” to us, and Yahweh commands total “separation.” To endeavor to bring in the foreign heathen is tantamount to trampling Yahweh’s Covenant underfoot and spitting in His face. Additionally, the other races have never “sinned” as they were never under Yahweh’s Law. So where does Weiland get off saying, “They are wallowing in their sin because of our sin”? Our sins have nothing to do with the behavior of other races!
The above is what I had published in one of my brochures entitled Two Seedline Taught In Dead Sea Scrolls, #2, and is recorded as a document I formatted, 10-2-2002.
Then again, Ted R. Weiland on an audio CD labeled “Mission to Israel”; entitled You Might Be A Christian if... Pt. 9, (CD 656), and the address given: P.O. Box. 248, Scottsbluff, NE 69363, made additional allegations to further aggravate my good friend Tony Gonyer, saying the following:
“... And don’t you dare, and I don’t think anyone would here – I’m sure you wouldn’t, but somebody who might hear this on tape – don’t you dare interpret what I just said as racist and supremacist, because I assure you that one can be a separatist without being a racist ... without being racist or supremacist. How do I know that? Because I’m a separatist, and I denounce racists and supremacists. And if you don’t want to believe me on that, then you might want to possibly take the word of hundreds – and who knows how many more – maybe more than that. You might want to take the word of hundreds of black Nigerians and others to whom this ministry has sent hundreds, if not thousands of dollars of free Bibles and tapes since its very inception. I’m not a separatist because I hate other races. I’m a separatist because I love Yahweh and His laws which require – which require that His people live separate segregated lives .... Now once again there are going to be all kinds of objections. Someone is surely to counter that this passage is addressing religious, not racial separation, to which I respond – not that there are some exceptions – that people can’t from other races, and have in the past, joined themselves to Yahweh and embraced the Covenant ...” [‘can’t’ = can not]
For Tony Gonyer, this was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. Tony is a very honest, conscientious person with a high moral standard, and found it his Biblical duty to rebuff Wieland’s un-Biblical assertions. Tony fully understood he was bound by Yahweh’s Law to witness to a crime when he understood a crime was being committed. In other words, if Tony knew a crime had been committed, in the process of being committed, or there was a danger of a crime about to be committed, if he didn’t witness to what he knew, he was as guilty as the person committing the crime, and Tony considered Ted R. Weiland’s allegations to be criminal in nature. Tony understood well Leviticus 5:1 which reads: “And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity.” By not refuting Weiland, Tony knew he would have become part and parcel of Weiland’s crime. Thus, Tony sat down and carefully wrote Weiland a letter which will not be reproduced here, for Weiland’s answers in his letters to Tony, dated July 14, 2005 and August 5, 2005, fully expose Weiland’s true character.
“July 14, 2005, Tony Gonyer ... Dear Tony, I received your letter this morning requesting to be removed from our mailing lists. Your request has been honored. However, a CD mailing went out this morning. Therefore, you will be receiving one more mailing of CDs before your request actually goes into effect.
“I would like to ask you a few questions that I hope you will be so kind as to answer. You wrote ‘I’ve known you to always be soft on the race issue.’ Do you call preaching (often) against integration and race-mixing soft? Do you not consider it wise to take that same message to the other races, informing them that when Yahweh’s laws are implemented and enforced that it will no longer be permitted for them to either live here or marry our daughters, and that they should remain and keep pure to themselves?
“You also wrote that you ‘Can not in good conscience support a ministry that, throws their pearls to swine, and gives the children’s bread to the dogs.’ I gather from this that you then would not support Yahshua’s ministry being that He gave some crumbs of bread to a dog. That is meant to be another question that I would like you to answer.
“It would be one thing, Tony, if I were neglecting the children and only ministering to non-Israelites, but you know that is not the case. If someone over in Africa wrote and requested a Bible from you, would you not send it to them? Probably not – but if you wouldn’t, why wouldn’t you? Wouldn’t you like to have the rest of the world – that we will inevitably have dealings of some kind with – wouldn’t you like them living by laws of Yahweh? If not, why not?
“You also wrote, ‘...you say you’re [not] a racist, then you say you denounce racism....’ I gather from this that you go around telling people that you are a racist – is this accurate?
“I’m a racialist, not a racist. By racism, I am referring to white-supremacists and those who hate the other races simply because they are not white. Is that what you are? If that is what you are, I’m sorry, I denounce it.
“I’m not angry either, but I am disappointed! I do look forward to your answers; Serving the KING of kings ... Ted R. Weiland Evangelist.”
“Tony Gonyer, July 29, 2005. To: Ted Weiland. This letter is in response to the questions you wanted me to answer you.
“Question #1: ‘Do you consider preaching against integration and race mixing soft?’ No I don’t. You preach against it, then you cut down our own race, while talking up the other races telling how much you appreciate them. Even including them in the new covenant. This type of double-speak will only serve to confuse our people. The same message is coming out of the modern world, to cause us to look down on our kindred and heritage, and lift the other races in prominence. This type of theology is why our young women are going to the other races in the first place.
“Question #2: ‘Do you think it’s a good idea to take the message of non integration to the other races?’
“Deuteronomy 7:2-4: Only Israel was told to be separate. This commandment, nor any other, was ever given to the other races. I know you are concerned about the other races breeding themselves out. I don’t know why it would make any difference? Their end is the grave. You have preached that it would be a destruction of Yahweh’s creation. Romans 9:22 indicates that some vessels are prepared for destruction.
“Question # 3: ‘Would you not support Yahshua’s ministry, being that he gave crumbs to a dog? Matt. 15:21-28.’
“Reading it in context, as you advise in many of your messages to do, she was aggravating the apostles greatly. Even Yahshua tried to ignore her, till He saw that she wasn’t going to leave them alone. He never offered her forgiveness of her sins. He never told her to repent. He didn’t grab a scroll of his Word from an apostle, to give to her. Read the parable, Luke 18:1-8. Not that Yahshua is an unrighteous judge. It is an example of someone pushing you into doing something that you wouldn’t normally do. It took care of the problem without any harm. There is no salvation in crumbs. If another race hears me quote a verse out of the Bible, I guess they get their crumb. I’m not addressing them though.
“Question #4: ‘Why wouldn’t you send a Bible to someone of another race? Wouldn’t you want them to live according to Yahweh’s laws?’
“They can not live according to Yahweh’s laws because He is not their God. They live like animals because they are beasts of the field. If you have studied the scriptures, you know in some places, that it is talking about 2 legged beasts. Such as Jeremiah 31:27 or Leviticus 18:23. Cross reference Leviticus 18:23 to Ezra 9:7. It is talking about the people who had mixed with the people of the land and now, have confusion of face. Mexicans, bastards, mixed breeds. As perverted as our world is, I don’t see a problem with our women approaching cattle for sex. They do run after the 2 legged beast. When the restoration comes, if there are any dark races left, they will learn the ways of Yahweh, by the noose and the whip. Our forefathers knew this in the early part of our country’s founding. When we return to Yahweh’s laws, the other races will flee to their own lands, because they won’t be able to live by them. Ask anyone who has done missionary work. Once you leave, they go right back to their own ways. Jeremiah 13:23: ‘Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.’ Why does Yahweh equate Jerusalem’s evil with blacks?; Ezra 4:1-3. The other races have nothing to do with the Kingdom, or in worshipping and serving our God. The footnote in verse 1 of chapter 4, uses the term “enemy” for adversary in referring to the other races of the land.
“Question #5: ‘Do you go around telling people, you are a racist?’
“I don’t go around waving a flag to such, but if they ask, I’ll tell them, yes. You would have to be a complete idiot, not to see the accomplishments of Adam’s race, in comparison to the other races. Yahweh himself is a racist: Amos 3:2 ‘You only have I chosen among all the families of the earth: Therefore, I will punish you for all your iniquities.’ Answers question #4 also. Other races are not held accountable for breaking Yahweh’s law. Read the parable of the Kingdom: Matt. 13:47-50. The angels will gather every kind in their net. “Kind” meaning races of the earth, and cast the bad into the fire. Read Revelations 21:10-13, if you’re not part of the 12 tribes, you’re not getting in. Revelations 22:15: the dogs are outside and not getting in. Also answers questions #3&4.
“Question #6: ‘Do you hate other races?’
“Psalm 139:21-22: ‘Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? And am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.’ At 1 Samuel 27:8-11, David and his men were never called to account for killing these people. David wouldn’t be welcomed into most churches today. Also, Moses was never punished for killing the Egyptian, Exodus 2:12. I’m not sure of which races, some or all other races, are to be considered Yahweh’s enemies, besides Edomites and Canaanites. I can tell you that when watching the evening news, where a dark race has killed someone of another dark race, I don’t lose any sleep over it. If they kill each other off, then I won’t have to lock my doors anymore ... Tony Gonyer.”
“August 5, 2005 ... Tony Goner [sic. Gonyer] ... Dear Tony, Thank you for taking the time to respond to my questions. I was about to reply to your answers, but, from past experience, I think to continue would be a waste of time for both of us. In several instances, I consider your answers, not only imbalanced and therefore scripturally extreme, but also biblically erroneous.
“It was clear several years ago that you had set your cap to follow the likes of the false accuser Emahiser. So be it. But be careful that you don’t follow him and others like him too closely. False accusations are a serious matter with Yahweh. Perhaps it is already too late being that, at the best, you misrepresented me and some of my beliefs in your letter.
“Tony, I’ve always like [sic.] you and I am saddened by the road you have chosen, which is not biblical, nor will it accomplish what you think it will. The segment of Christian Israel that you have chosen to associate with will always be a disgruntled, hateful, mean-spirited, false accusing, ineffective bunch of nincompoops.
“Some day I hope to renew our relationship on biblical grounds ... Serving the KING of kings, Ted R. Weiland, Evangelist.”
This concludes the correspondence between Tony Gonyer and Ted R. Weiland. You will notice that Tony answered all of Weiland’s questions quite courteously, but Weiland wasn’t considerate enough (as one would expect a so-called “Christian evangelist” to be) to reciprocate! It should be obvious to the reader that Ted R. Weiland didn’t have any satisfactory answers! And how do you like the way Weiland finished his last letter to Tony. Weiland so much as told Tony, “If you will bow down and kiss my posterior, then I’ll accept you again as my friend.” And if Weiland will take this obnoxious attitude toward Tony Gonyer, he’ll do the same with you! With Ted R. Weiland, “It’s my way or the highway”! (i.e. “Some day I hope to renew our relationship on [my interpretation of] biblical grounds.”) Have you noticed how some people will speak to you on your same level, while others like to speak down to you? Weiland has just shown you his true character by speaking down to Tony! Christian? Hardly!
WE’LL NOW DETERMINE JUST
WHAT’S BIBLICAL AND WHAT’S NOT
For this we’ll go to Matthew 13:47-50 which reads: “47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
It should be noted that the word “kind” is from the Greek “genos” (γένος) which W. E. Vine in his An Expository Dictionary Of New Testament Words defined as, “a family ... stock ... offspring ... kindred ... race ... nation.” (#1085 in Strongs.) Under “Kind” Vine states for the most part:
“KIND (Noun) 1. genos (1085), akin to ginomai, ‘to become,’ denotes (a) ‘a family,’ Acts 4:6, ‘kindred;’ 7:13, rv, ‘race’ (kjv, ‘kindred’); 13:26, ‘stock’; (b) ‘an offspring,’ Acts 17:28; Rev. 22:16; (c) ‘a nation, a race,’ Mark 7:26, rv, ‘race’ (kjv, ‘nation’); Acts 4:36, rv ‘(a man of Cyprus) by race,’ kjv, ‘of the country (of Cyprus);’ genos does not mean ‘a country;’ the word here signifies ‘parentage’; ... ‘race’ (kjv, ‘kindred’); 18:2, 24, rv, ‘by race’ (kjv, ‘born’); 2 Cor. 11:26, ‘countrymen’; Gal. 1:14, rv, ‘countrymen’ (kjv, ‘nation’); Phil. 3:5, ‘stock’; 1 Pet. 2:9, rv, ‘race’ (kjv, ‘generation’); (d) ‘a kind, sort, class,’ Matt. 13:47, ‘kind’; in some mss. in 17:21, kjv, ‘kind;’ Mark 9:29, ‘kind’ ...”
Tony Gonyer in his July 29th letter to Weiland included a photocopy of this passage from Vine, but evidently Weiland regarded it as of no value. Weiland wants rather to thrust his own personal opinions on race, yet refuse the basic definition of the language of the text as it is written. The following rendition of Matt. 13:47-50 does absolutely no violence to this passage:
“47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea [of people], and gathered of every race: 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good [racial kind] into vessels, but cast the bad [racial kind] away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them [the bad racial kind] into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
All one need do is go to the creation story of Genesis, and it is repeated time and again, “Everything after its kind, and it was good.” But here we find ourselves face to face with some bad racial kind to be cast away and some good racial kind to be kept! Don’t get mad at me, for these are not my words but they are in red letters in my Bible, or the very words of Yahshua Christ Himself who was no other than Yahweh-God in the flesh! Therefore, the only conclusion we can arrive at is the fact that Yahshua Christ Himself is a RACIST.
I call Weiland “Red Ted”, as some of his tenets conform more closely to The Communist Manifesto written by the infamous Canaanite-Jew Karl (Heinrich) Marx (a descendant of Cain), than to Holy Scripture.
My words I know are hard, and seem very abrasive, but our very heritage is at stake. Under our present circumstances I can do no other. But Yahweh speed the day when I can finally speak tenderheartedly. My God, our race is in danger of extinction and it seems hardly anyone cares! And the best Ted R. Weiland can do is to emulate the enemy and don his doctrines.
