Christian Agrarianism Is The Answer

SweetPotatoPic18Aug

The more I study theology, politics, and current events, the more I am convinced that Christian Agrarianism is the only answer to America’s problems. Those who follow my WordPress blog know that I have been disillusioned with politics as of late, and announced my *official* political burnout in a blog post back on the 1st of August. That has not changed.

Several years ago I read a great book titled Surviving Off Off-Grid. SOOG was written by Michael Bunker -a Christian Agrarian Separatist who lives on a homestead in central Texas. Bunker warns of the potential collapse of the JIT (Just-In-Time) grid system of electric power, water, sanitation, petroleum fuels, and corporate food stores. He considers this JIT system not just flawed and destined to collapse, but that the collapse will be a judgement of God upon those who have leaned upon this system instead of God for their provision. Most Christians would scoff at the thought that the Industrial Revolution and most of our “progress” in the last 250 years was not good, and that God commanded man to live a simple agrarian life. They may scoff, but I believe that it is true.

In addition to separating from the grid and the corporate economic system of this world, Michael Bunker no longer does politics. I am staring to think that he might be right about that.

There are others who talk of Christian Agrarianism, such as Herrick Kimball, Scott M. Terry, and Howard King. These three men have been involved in agrarianism much longer than me, and have some very valuable things to say. But none of them have made the radical step of peacefully and voluntarily separating from the grid and economic system as Bunker has. Michael Bunker said it, and then he actually did it. For this, I hold Bunker in esteem.

In the last four years and three months, I have indie published four books. There was an almost three year gap between the publication of the first and second book! I have grown a great deal spiritually in that time. The only two of them still in print/circulation are my August 2016 book As America Fades and my January 2017 book Bloggings Of An Amerikaner. My little book As America Fades was written a year ago when I still held to a glimmer of hope that the U.S.A. and the Constitution could be restored to the republic of the Founders. I now hold out absolutely zero hope that that could happen. While I would tweak a few statements in AAF were I to publish it today, and I am no longer promoting the America-wide Amerikaner concept, those two books are still in print as I think they contain essays of value.

Christian agrarianism is not just a lifestyle or theology -it is a complete worldview. It encompasses theology, purity of morals, gender roles and family structure, a kin based society, hard work, limited government, individual liberty, a clean environment, and honest economics all in one. It is a total worldview, not a fragmented worldview like all political parties and factions today are offering.

A return to true Christianity, an agrarian lifestyle, and traditional gender roles is what we need. If we did this, politics would follow. I delved into this a bit with my July 20, 2017 blog post Musings On Kinism and Agrarianism.

No movement can succeed without God’s blessing. Present day Christians have ignored 2nd Corinthians 6:14-18. I believe that the United States of America is being judged for her wickedness. That is why I am now focusing my life, my blog, and my YouTube videos on history, agrarianism, survival, and theology.

Author: Joe Putnam

I am a Christian (Reformed/Sovereign Grace Baptist type), white American of Western European bloodline, advocate of an agrarian social order, Kinist, White Nationalist, admirer of America’s Founding Fathers and the Boys in Gray, homesteader, indie published author, and amateur historian. I have indie published several books, all of which are available from Amazon. I am a life long resident of rural Orange County, IN –in the part of the Upper South that many would term Greater Appalachia or the Dixie Frontier. In addition to my own blog "Putnam Liberty Notes", from May through July of 2017 I dual published many of my posts at the popular multi-author Alt-South blog Identity Dixie. In addition to my blog writings, I am currently gearing up for (at least) two more book projects –one theological and one historical. The theological one will cover the three interpretational views of Daniel’s 70th Week. I hope to have this book in print in late summer 2017. (Hint: I am, not a Dispensational Futurist). The historical book will be a biography of George Rogers Clark (1752-1818). Clark was a noted Virginia militia officer who’s campaigns, including his successful siege of Vincennes, basically took the Old Northwest from Britain during the American Revolution. Clark spent the rest of his life around the river that separates Clarksville, IN from Louisville, Kentucky. I hope to have my Clark bio in print in early 2018.

  1. Hey newmeterology,
    The Amish do in many ways serve as a model of an agrarian culture in a modern world. I am not with them on their pacifism, or some of their other doctrines, but they are a good example of a racially homogeneous people still living on the land.
