Some White Nationalists’ / neo-Nazis’ belief: Jesus was white and Shem the father of the white race

White Nationalist

I just concluded an email exchange with a lady in Canada named Linda, apparently a white nationalist. I was shocked to learn of her beliefs! Below are some of them in her own words:

  • Shem was the father of the white race.And Abraham was his decendent (sic). The families of Jacob were all white races.
  • Jesus christ(sic) was a WHITE man,
  • Even white Russians are from Shem.

The Bible disproves her views so clearly:

Genesis 10:2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.


  • Gomer: People living in area of the Black Sea, Germany and Wales.
  • Magog: Reference to “Gog” referring to Georgia, a region near the Black Sea
    and Scythians.
  • Madai: Medes (Persia), Japheth through Madai father of peoples of India.
  • Javan: People of Greece and Cyprus.
  • Tubal: Russian, city of Tobolsk.
  • Meshech: Russian, (Name Muskovi) city of Moscow.
  • Tiras Thracians, possibly the Etruscans of Italy.

And according to, Japheth’s 7 sons are:

1. Javan (Greece, Romans, Romance — French, Italians, Spanish, Portuguese)
2. Magog (Scythians, Slavs, Russians, Bulgarians, Bohemians, Poles, Slovaks, Croatians)
3. Madai (Indians & Iranic: Medes, Persians, Afghans, Kurds)
4. Tubal (South of Black Sea)
5. Tiras (Thracians, Teutons, Germans, Scandinavian, Anglo-Saxon, Jutes)
6. Meshech (Russia)
7. Gomer (Celtic)

We clearly see that Japheth and his sons are the fathers of white nations. There are dark skinned peoples living in India, but there are also white Indians as well.

Genesis 10:22 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.

1. Elam (Arabia)
2. Asshur (Assyria)
3. Lud (Lydians)
4. Aram (Aramaic, Armenia, Mesopotamia, Syria)
5. Arphaxad (From which Abraham descended)

These nations are all darker skin peoples.

Shem was apparently of darker skin. He could not have been the father of the white peoples as some neo-Nazis claim!

Abraham is a son of Shem (Genesis 11:12-26). Jesus’ ancestry is of the tribe of Judah, the son of Jacob (Israel) son of Issac, son of Abraham, The sons of Shem were not white, therefore Jesus could not have been white.

I’m posting this because I hope others who hold these mistaken beliefs may change their minds to learn what the Bible says. I honestly did not know until the other day that some White Nationalists believe that Jesus Christ was white, and that Shem, not Japheth, was the father of the white race!

It turns out this false doctrine came from Nazi Germany and was taught to Protestant churches.

During the Third Reich, German Protestant theologians, motivated by racism and tapping into traditional Christian anti-Semitism, redefined Jesus as an Aryan and Christianity as a religion at war with Judaism. (Ref:

It was a Nazi trick to deceive the Protestants to accept white supremacy by saying Jesus was white!

Offering Linda Scriptural evidence from the Bible that Shem could not have been the father of the white race only elicited from her false accusations, name calling and mockery. She wouldn’t even acknowledge that Japheth, not Shem was the father of all the Russians though the Bible clearly says in Genesis chapter 10 that Magog, Tubal, and Meshech were sons of Japheth! She only got angrier and angrier and said she wasted her time with me. What does it prove? It proves you cannot reason with an emotional angry woman!. 🙂

Of course I’ve had tons of experience facing the wrath of a woman, usually because of my errors and failings, and God knows I tried to be patient with her. I did not resort to either mockery or name calling like she did with me. Race or nationalism is not an emotional issue with me. I ran into lots of nationalists when I lived in Russia from 1994-97 and tried to avoid trouble with them. They were offended at my very presence in their country! Most Russians are not like them. I like to be matter of fact with people, and meekly present the evidence. I stood on the authority of the Bible and gave her specific Scriptures. How many Scriptures did she share with me to back her claims? Not one.

White nationalism and all its subgroups is yet another trip off and trick of Satan to get people sidetracked. True Christians are not supposed to hold an allegiance to any nation more than their allegiance to the Kingdom of God. That includes racial identity as well.

Romans 10:12  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.
Galatians 3:28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Colossians 3:11  Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

Greek: White race descended from Japheth.
Jew (especially when Paul wrote those words), darker skinned race descended from Shem.

Jesus was not white.

  1. “True Christians are not supposed to hold an allegiance to any nation more than their allegiance to the Kingdom of God. That includes racial identity as well”.

    If this is true, then Christianity is a path toward communism and slavery. What you say Christianity disavows are the ONLY political protections from such hell. Perhaps the tenets of Christianity are designed to disarm such protections, and therefore Christianity is the purposeful religion of the slave class? Food for thought.

    Furthermore, you pose a danger to the people with whom you share a country, given your beliefs. You would have them give up their unity, and hence their political defense from opposing political groups, most often based in race, that would exploit them. If you (Christians) were ejected from your countries for any reason, and quickly needed to find a home and protect yourselves from political danger, you would very quickly gain a sense of group nationalism, perhaps even based in race. Your liberalism is a luxury that is allowed to you via the benefits of a measure of nationalism, retained by your country, that you do not appreciate. The real world would disabuse you of your liberal “no nation, no race” notions very, very quickly. Stop being a liability to those with a sense of politics and identity, who protect you, and wake up and help them defend you by gaining a sense of nationalism.

  2. One more thing: if you are so anti-nationalist, then you are the perfect vehicle for the new world order. The New world order is more correctly the liberal world order, as readily admitted by neocons such as Robert Kagan and George Bush. If you champion lack of national/racial identity, then you are a champion of the new world order. If you are a champion of nationalism and conservatism, then you are anti-new world order. This is all widely held knowledge.

      Where did I say I am anti-nationalist? I said,

      “True Christians are not supposed to hold an allegiance to any nation more than their allegiance to the Kingdom of God. That includes racial identity as well”.

      The emphasis is *more than*. I served 4 years in the USAF and vowed to protect my country from its enemies and to uphold the constitution of the United States of America. I still think the US Constitution is a wonderful document. I think America would not be facing many problems it faces today if the government kept Constitutional laws and principles. Too bad many American legislators do not seem to hold that opinion any longer.
