Continuing from Part 2:
Of course, we might sometimes wish that some of these Laws had been a little different, but we must necessarily accept that it would be impossible to change them. Laws of Nature cannot be abolished or amended through a vote in the General Assembly of the United Nations, the US Congress, or any other national parliament! Perhaps everything had been easier if all human beings and all races had been created equal, and if there had not been any hereditary factors governing and limiting our individual possibilities of development. However, that is not the case, and there is absolutely no chance of changing this fact by wishful thinking, i.e. by doing as if these Laws did not exist. To build a society on such wishful thinking is a deadly sin that can only have disastrous consequences.
These consequences are seen only too clearly when we take a look at the societies that have been built by our enemies in East and West. Unanimously they refer to National Socialism as the “Gospel of Evil” – while they themselves rule over a world on the brink of economic and moral disaster, a world afflicted by inflation, unemployment, crime, senseless violence, drug abuse, pollution, pornography, corruption, hunger, and ecological catastrophes – a world that has experienced only 16 days of peace since 1945 and where 30 million people have been butchered over the same period. And over this dreary world hovers the dreadful threat of a nuclear war that will destroy all higher life on earth.
He’s absolutely correct here. The laws of nature are indisputable.The next few paragraphs are accurate so I will skip those. The reader is freely encouraged to read the entire paper on his/her own. From making sense and staying on topic, Riis-Knudsen get lost again.
In this connection the enemies of National Socialism often claim that the biological conception of human nature, which is the very basis of National Socialism, is “unethical”. To this we can only reply that it is the so-called “ethics” of these opponents that are immoral, because they are based on norms and values that are not founded on Nature. For National Socialists there is only one truth: the Laws of Nature, and anything that is not in full accordance with this truth is absolutely 100% wrong!
Yes, the laws of nature cannot be meddled with or altered, but eternal laws can only come from an eternal God! Now he contradicts himself as he does through most of his paper.
This, of course, means a total rejection of Christianity, whose unnatural dualism is the very basis of the predominant “moral” code – also where this code is disguised under a liberal/Humanistic or a Marxist label. According to Christianity, man enjoys a very special position among all creatures by having a divine soul. This soul is universal and un-biological. It does not differ from race to race or from individual to individual, and it does not depend on intelligence or any other mental or physical quality in the individual, nor is it hereditary or in any other way influenced by Nature. It is this soul that makes all people equal in the eyes of God, no matter what they do or what they are, as long as they believe in Him. To the Christian, speaking about man as a product of biological factors is a “disparagement”. According to Christianity, man’s whole life is a constant struggle between the divine soul (the spirit) and “matter”, i.e. Nature, or – on the personal level the flesh, which represents Evil and must be defeated in order to gain eternal life in an undefined paradise in the clouds. Life on earth is only a preparation for that life to come – either in Abraham’s bosom or in Hell, all depending on how successful they have been in fighting their biological nature. In itself, life on earth is without any value, just a vale of tears.
See? He talks about immaterial laws and then begins to criticize Christianity on the basis that it deals with more than the just material. Mankind does indeed have a soul, each one of us. Mankind was also separated out into nations (i.e., races) by God. God, in his Word the Bible, never claims that “everyone is equal.” There is a struggle for us between the lusts of our flesh (greed, sex, money, etc), and following our Savior, Jesus Christ. However, the gospel of Christ and salvation is not based on works, as Riis-Knudsen claims in ignorance, but rather on our faith and trust in Jesus Christ. He also ignorantly claims that life on earth is without value. Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” God WANTS us to enjoy this life, and to truly enjoy it and get the most out of it we must have Christ in our lives.
As I’ve stated before, if Riis-Knudsen wanted to attack Christianity with strawman arguments, he should have separated that thought into a different paper. Instead, he greatly diminished the integrity of his view on National-Socialism but contradicting himself frequently and going outside the scope of his intended topic.
