Make No Mistake, Ethnonationalism is Anti-Christian

The Bible warns that many will be deceived in the Last Days (Matthew 24:11; 1 Timothy 4:1). Indeed, there are many professing Christians who endorse or support the alt-right movement, thinking they are 'righteous' simply because they oppose islam.

Just because someone opposes one evil or heresy, does not mean they are righteous.  To think the someone is righteous simply because they oppose one anti-Christ religion, such as islam is extremely foolish. The alt-right opposes islam, not because it is an anti-christ religion, but because it opposes "western civilisation" which they are oh so proud of. They are proud of their so-called "western civilisation" and think that it is their ethnicity which makes the "white race" 'great'. That is ethnonationalism, pride in one's ethnicity, and in one's nation for being of that ethnicity.

This goes against the faith in Christ which is universal, as is clearly evident in Romans 10:11-13:  

For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

God desires all, whether Jew or Gentile, black or white, Asian, African, Arab, Persian, Indian, Pacific Islander, or Indigenous Australian, or whatever other ethnic group to be saved, for He loved the whole world that He gave His only Son Jesus Christ to die for their sins (John 3:16). God does not love any ethnic group, or count any ethnic group more or less superior than another. 

Ethnonationalism thinks that one's own ethnic group is superior and more favoured or blessed by God. This is a heresy and anyone who is even sympathetic to ethnonationalism is a heretic who is headed for Hell. 

Make no mistake. Ethnonationalism is anti-Christian.
