Biblical Principles of a Quality Leader
America and the rest of the Western world have been cursed with incompetent, treacherous, unscrupulous, unprincipled, despotic and even traitorous scoundrels as leaders for much of the twentieth century. Such leaders have not only dominated government, but they have also dominated business, labor, entertainment, religion, and education. They have become the Establishment of the Western world. Why is it that good men seldom achieve important or powerful leadership positions? The answer is that the basic Biblical principles for a leader are being violated.
The Bible provides basic principles that must be followed if acceptable quality leaders are to be obtained. A nation is to “provide out of all the people [of that nation] able men, such as fear Yahweh, men of truth, hating covetousness” (Exodus 18:21). The nation is told not to “set a Stranger over thee, which is not thy brother” (Deuteronomy 17:15). (Nation means a people having a common origin, i.e., of the same race, language, and tradition and capable of forming or constituting a nation-state.) A good leader must meet these basic qualifications. The people should not accept or allow leaders who fail to meet them to rule over them in government, business, labor, religion, education, or any other organization. In the United States the people have elected a president who violates every one of these principles.
“Able men” means the ability to govern the people according to the laws of God as revealed in the Bible. Anyone who does not oppose such sins as abortion, adultery, and sodomy does not govern according to God’s law and is not an able man. Anyone who deliberately deceives the people, as do most politicians, by promising what they know that they cannot deliver, such as ever expanding entitlement programs, is a liar and not fit for office. Likewise, those who tell the voters what they want to hear to get their votes, but who governs or votes consistently contrary to his campaign promises, is a liar and not fit for office.
Not only has the President (Clinton was president when this was written; it is also applicable to those who followed him) not opposed abortion or sodomy, he has used the power of his office to advance them. Not only has he failed to condemn adultery, he has a reputation of being a practicing adulterer. He has promised ever expanding entitlement programs and has used such promises as a vote-buying scheme. He campaigns as a new moderate Democrat, but advocates old-time liberal Democratic programs.
“Such as fear Yahweh” means reverential trust in God, the Father of Jesus. Hence, only Christians are qualified to rule over Christians. John describes the type of person who fears God: “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.” (1 John 2:22-23). “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” (2 John 9-11). Thus, a Christian, one who possesses reverential trust in God, acknowledges Jesus as his Lord and Savior (2 Peter 1:11, 1 John 4:14) and as the only begotten Son of God (John 3:18). He strives to live by the teachings of Jesus.
If the President fears God, he has done a good job of concealing the fact. His actions of supporting abortion (even partial birth abortion, which is virtually infanticide) and catering to homosexuals are contrary to the teaching of Jesus. Based on his actions, he is not fit to govern Christians.
“Men of truth” means an honest, truthful person. When he speaks, he speaks frankly. He “tells it like it is.” He does not use evasive double talk. The positions he takes are on the side of truth, i.e., according to God’s law.
As pointed out above, the President is not a man of truth. (Some people believe that he is incapable of knowing the difference between the truth and a lie.) Again he fails to meet God’s criteria for a good leader.
“Hating covetousness” means despising covetousness, greed, and envy. It means, “Honest men who scorn unjust profits.” — Moffatt. It means, “Honest men, with an aversion to improper gain.” — Smith and Goodspeed. Anyone who preaches covetousness or envy to gain office does not hate covetousness. Anyone who promises to use or does use the public treasury to gain office does not hate covetousness. Such people are not fit for leadership positions.
The President certainly does not hate covetousness. He adores covetousness and envy. They are the backbone of his campaign and polices. He does not shy from using the public treasury to buy votes.
Most conservatives would agree that a high quality leader must be an able man (although many would fear or abhor using God’s law to decide who is an able man), a man of truth, and a hater of covetousness. However, rare is the conservative who would include reverential trust in God. Even rarer still are conservatives who claim that this God in whom reverential trust is placed is the Father of Jesus, so great is their fear of being accused of anti-Semitism. As small as this number is, it towers over the minuscule number of conservatives who would openly support the fifth principle: Only Whites should rule Whites. They posses an immeasurable and uncontrollable fear of being called a racist. To be politically correct is better than to be scripturally correct.
“Not a stranger” means “not of another race.” Stranger means a person of foreign extraction, i.e., a person of a different race. It does not mean a foreigner in the sense of a person who is a citizen or subject of a foreign country who is visiting or temporarily residing in this country. It refers to a person residing permanently in this country who is of a different race, i.e., for the United States, a non-White. For Whites to be ruled by non-Whites is a curse and results from violating God’s laws: “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of Yahweh thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. . . . he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.” (Deuteronomy 28:15,43,44). Any White person who sacrifices the interest and welfare of his race to that of an alien race violates this principle. He is a traitor and his rule is worse than that of an alien, who at least remains loyal to his own race.
The current President follows the path blazed by every president since Hoover of scarifying the White race to the non-White races. Prime examples are the various “civil right” laws and affirmative action programs. No one who would sacrifice his own race for the benefit of another race should be allowed to rule.
A White Christian should never vote for or support anyone who does not meet these five criteria. He should only vote for or support candidates for public office who show the ability to govern people according to God’s law. who are Christians (they have shown their Christianity by their deeds, but they do not boast about their deeds), who are honest and truthful and openly stand for the truth as taught by the Bible, who abhor covetousness, greed, envy, and vote buying, especially with the public treasury, and who is White and does not betray the White race. A White Christian should not vote for or support the lesser of evils. To do so is to support and promote evil. If his only choice is between “the lesser of two evils,” his should abstain. (Perhaps this explains the decline in voter turnout. When the voters are offered the choice between the lesser of evils, why bother to vote. The result will only be evil. Abstaining is better.)
The violation of these five basic criteria by those in leadership explains the decline of American and the rest of the Western world. It explains the moral and spiritual decay. It explains why although parties and leaders change not much else changes. Civilization continues to decline. Only when enough of God’s people cease supporting leaders who do not abide by these five basic principles will things improve. Only then will people who do abide by them will rise to a position of leadership.
