The Importance of Christ as Traditionalist
September 7, 2022
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Many have seen and heard the truth, but few believe. Traditionalism and its values have long been tainted and rejected in our society. Since we seek to revive this in our own hearts and society, we must overcome many challenges. The values of traditionalism have long been laid clear. Man cannot live in his own will without corruption. In order for our hearts to truly revive traditional values, we must seek Christ.
We have all witnessed the, “Reject modernity, Embrace tradition” memes with the man’s hand facing outwards gesturing to halt, eyes with red sun glares, and Doom Slayer music blaring In the background. Though the memes are considered by many to be “dank”, the majority of individual’s knowledge of traditionalism stops there. Every individual carries different variations of traditionalism in their heart. However, it is important for us all to solidify our shared understanding of traditionalism in the foundation of where these values are derived.
“Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, ‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, for she was taken out of man.’ That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.” – Genesis 2:22-24
God created man, and woman came from man. In the same instance when God states, “For this reason man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh.” In the beginning of creation God defined his will as one man and one woman united in marriage. The flesh uniting together is marriage. It is an intimate and spiritual connection between the two. We must understand God’s will between a man and a woman in order for us to further expand on traditionalism. The focal point of the progessive movement attacks the most important value of traditionalism, the family. As long as the family is torn apart there stand little opportunity for traditional values of Christ to thrive in the hearts and minds of individuals.
Our culture has been perveted and normalized to consist of things such as gay marriage, transgenderism, feminism, demasculinization, feminine empowerment, and divorce. If we look into these things as a whole they are evil. Such things are evil because they are contrary to the will of God. We are trying to preserve and revive the lost values of Christ in our society. Traditionalism is simply just not the good values we were taught and raised on, but is the opposition of evil ideals and the preservation of Christ in our hearts. To be a follower Christ includes being a traditionalist.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.” – Romans 12:1-2
The normalization of homoerotic behavior is the first challenge we must overcome as traditionalist. These very behaviors are contrary to what God willed when we read Genesis. It is in everything, our schools, media, news, books, it is even perverting and replacing our history. As men and women enlightened by God we are no longer susceptible to indoctrination of this behavior. However, the likely victims are young adults, unenlightened men, women, and children. As followers of Christ we are charged with the duty of spreading the good word, rebuking evil in the name of Jesus Christ, and expanding the kingdom of heaven. It is of utmost importance we raise our children in the blood of Christ and his teachings, in order for us to preserve the values of God that have been lost in the new progressive world. The issue we face is that we are vastly outnumbered. The teachers in our schools raise our children on these homosexual values corrupting their minds and hearts. These very homosexual values destroy the family. We must remain vigilant in the face of evil. Homeschooling has become the likely solution to saving our future generations from the evil that has consumed the once safe space our children regularly attend. As followers of Christ we are continuously trying to expand the kingdom of heaven. Since our children are the next ambassadors of Heaven, it is important we leave them with good teachings and knowledge of our Lord.
The second most important challenge we face as traditionalists is the demasculinization of man. Feminists in their unrelenting and unholy crusade for total power has severely crippled our society. The woman is simply not created to hold the positions of power and endure the hardships that men do.
“Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, Then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing-if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.” – 1 Timothy 2:11-15
The position we find ourselves in today with modern women being overly masucline is a combination of a few things. Firstly, The synergy of failed families and perverted indoctrination of our youth. Secondly, overly submissive men submit to women, and overly confident and prideful women reign power over men. Additionally, Since strong fathers no longer exist to show young men how to be men, and young women what a strong man is. It has become rare to find a man or woman who denies themselves of youthful lust, fleshly desires, and purity of heart. It has also become increasingly rare to find a young man or woman who has not given themselves to multiple partners. Lastly, since strong mothers also don’t exist, young women are no longer raised to hold submissive and caretaking roles, and young men no longer are raised with the respect of a noble, God fearing woman. The issue we face is a sex war with both parties blaming each other. Leading to generational scars and jading of the individuals hearts who live and die without knowing the glory of God’s will.
Through failed fatherhood and motherhood we have arrived here. The demasculinization of men is not solely the woman’s fault. The very reason the woman steps into power is because of the lack of strong male leadership. Years of limitless sexual partners between men and woman has allowed for valueless relationships. We witness things such as couples moving in with each other before marriage. Worldly couples often test the water with each other before fully committing to marriage. Christ is no longer the keystone of our hearts and our relationships. Weak men have stopped seeking Christ in their own hearts, and started seeking women. Weak men and women continue to corrupt strong men and women’s hearts. However, it begins with the man. In order for us to return to the original will of God we must turn back to God. God created men to be leaders and the heads of the household. The excuse of promiscuous women corrupting men is longer valid. Weak men must rise, turn to God, and no longer pursue weak women. With masculine men, and women submitting to authority, we can bring back the traditional family structure that God Designed
“I find more bitter than death the woman who is a snare, whose heart is a trap and whose hands are chains. The man who pleases God will escape her, but the sinner she will ensnare.” – Ecclesiastes 7:26
The final challenge we face as followers of Christ is ourselves. No longer is it normalized to pick up your own cross and embrace suffering for Christ. This world has become a palace of instant gratification and a lustful cesspool of sexual partners. Since Hook-up culture, modern media, and the progressive movement normalize sex and an streamlined easy life. Men no longer lead, women no longer are eager to raise children, many of us live limitlessly and without self control, and together men and women no longer remain celibate.
”Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone wants to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it. But whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will a person be profited if he gains the whole world, but forfeits his life? Or what will a person give in-exchange-for his life?” – Matthew 16:24-26
It is important for us as traditionalists to seek Christ and not ourselves. We must pick up our cross daily and deny the things of this world. We should always flee the youthful lust of our hearts. As young men we must remain focused on Christ regardless if we are blessed with a partner or not. Denying ourselves and bettering ourselves as men under God. As a young woman you should remain respectful and self-controlled, seeking Christ wholeheartedly praying that God blesses you with motherhood. As followers of Christ and traditionalists, the final goal shall always be to expand God’s kingdom through any means. That being as a family, an individual, or however else God guides you.
“The Thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy; I have come that they may have it to the full.” – John 10:10
We have all witnessed the evil and vile things this world has done. We have also committed those evil things. The destruction of the nuclear family and tainting of young men and women’s lives has caused for lost and empty generations. However, Through Jesus Christ we are freed and are permitted to live life to the fullest. We must go in the peace of Jesus Christ and live in love for our brothers and sisters. I pray all who read this may be charged with the holy spirit and receive understanding in their heart. Jesus Christ, son of God, Have mercy on me, a sinner.
