What do you mean, "Dead Kinist"?

"If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:"  -- Colossians 3:1-10

Just as the name "Kinist" is a name used to distinguish oneself from people who today are generically called, "Christians", so I sought to make a further distinction of what my family both believes and practices. Our family does not believe that the popular (even though it's not really "popular" but you know what I mean) movement called Kinism, is consistent with Biblical Christianity.

Before you draw a conclusion out of that statement, let me explain. I do believe in the basic Kinist principles about race and people groups. What I do not agree with is the Presbyterian/Reformed lifestyle that is best described as being merely Sunday Christianity.

So "The Dead Kinist" seeks to die to his own will, die to sin, and allow Christ to live through him. He is separate from the world and esteems the reproach of Christ greater riches than the pleasures of this world (Hebrews 11:26). This is what my aim and goal is. But chiefly, that Jesus Christ would be glorified in our cities and towns, and state.

If you were to best describe my family's beliefs, consider a mixture of R.J. Rushdoony, Denny Kenaston, and Christian Agrarianism. The strengths of Reformed Kinist doctrine, combined with the godly, separate lifestyle of the original Anabaptist way will keep the devil running with his tail tucked between his legs. Sadly, all I see is one way or the other. Either correct doctrine, or (mostly) correct living.

As a Christian Reconstructionist, every detail of our lives must be brought into subjection to God's law and the glory of Jesus Christ. We must strive to make sure that every decision we take is based on a firm conviction from the word of God, not based on what is the most convenient or pleasurable option. In my opinion, both the Reformed and the Anabaptist camps have failed in this measure.

So my brethren....

"reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord." -- Romans 6:11


"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." -- 1 Corinthians 10:31
