The racist slavery that once existed in America, and in the Western world, is completely unbiblical. The idea that because somebody is African or of a particular race they deserve slavery, is utterly antichrist and contrary to what the Apostle preached:
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28)
It is utterly contrary to words of the holy Paul:
Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all. (Colossians 3:9-11)
I am not here to defend the idea that people of certain races deserve slavery; if anything, the leftists have a lot of explaining to do, since it is they who support abortion in which the majority of murdered babies are African American, and since it was they who supported and maintained eugenics, and it is they who still push the wicked ideology of social darwinism. The South had slaves, and the Union also had slaves. I am against both.
I am here to defend the imagery of the Confederate Flag.
The Confederate Flag was just removed from the grounds of the South Carolina statehouse, but this is my opinion: Jesus Christ prefers the Confederate Flag over the official flag of America. Let me tell you why: the Confederate flag has a Christian image, the American flag has the 50 stars, representing each state and the 13 stripes that represent the 13 original colonies.
The X on the Confederate Flag represents the cross of St. Andrew, one of the apostles of Jesus Christ, who is also the patron saint of Scotland. According to Church tradition, St. Andrew crucified on the pagans on a giant cross shaped like an X, called in Latin a Crux decussate.
In the year 832, the Christian Scottish king Óengus II led an army of Scots and Picts against the pagan Angles. The Christians were outnumbered by the heathens; the king made a vow that if he won against the enemies of Christ that he would dedicate Scotland to St. Andrew. When the battle commenced a giant cloud shaped like Andrew’s cross appeared in the sky. Invigorated by what they saw, the Christians fought with all passion and exertion and defeated the pagans.
It was because of this that Scotland made its flag with the X shaped cross:
The Confederate Flag was designed to represent the different peoples which the South comprised of, particularly the Scottish and French peoples. The X represents the St. Andrew’s Cross of Scotland, and the red represents the red stripe of the French flag, and thus you have the Confederate Flag.
The rich Christian imagery in the Confederate Flag is what makes it very special, distinct, and historical, having deep roots in the Scottish and French Christian cultures that immigrated to the South. It is quite different from official American flag is purely secular in its imagery.
Because of the Christian imagery that is embroidered on the flag, I say that Jesus prefers it over the secular American flag. May God guide this nation to the light of Christianity, and not to the capricious chaos of a world controlled by media and trends. The media is using the deaths of the African Americans killed in Charleston to push their agenda, and that is the agenda of removing the Cross.
