Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
No, I am not pro Hitler or pro any socialism whatsoever. I am on record as having condemned Nazism along with Communism and all other forms of secular humanism and socialism, for example in my Renaissance or Reformation book..
I am a Bible-believing Evangelical Christian, a Reformed Baptist, a Missionary, dedicated to serving persecuted churches, particularly in Africa, for over 36 years.
As a Missionary, I accept invitations to minister anywhere and this has included me speaking in mosques, communist meetings, Mormon churches, Christian Science reading rooms, Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Halls, Roman Catholic schools and amongst some of the most extreme secular humanist, Atheist groups, on university campuses, in fact anywhere. So, yes, people will often hear me on radio stations that would be diametrically opposed to so much of what we as a Christian Mission stand for. The goal is to bring a Biblical Worldview and Christian perspective to our increasingly secular and anti-Christian society.
Please do not judge me, or our Mission, by some of the company we keep!
Missionaries need to go where the mission field is. This has included the Nuba Mountains of Sudan where we have come under aerial bombardment, rocket fire and artillery bombardment.
Although I have debated in mosques, I am hardly pro Islam! Although I have shown the Jesus Film in Marxist, terrorist camps and spoken at communist societies and university campuses, I am by no means a communist! And so we could continue.
Yes, I have accepted invitations to speak on radio stations that could be pro Hitler, but then I have spoken on more radio stations where they idolise Muhammad, Marx, Lenin, Mao Tse-tung, Castro, Mandela and Mugabe…
Our society is so thoroughly brainwashed and indoctrinated on so many different levels that it is almost impossible to communicate about almost anything, in a relevant way, without triggering responses which require other explanations. Which then trigger further red herrings and rabbit trails… It is like trying to take the ball down the field to score a goal by placing the ball between their goal posts into the net. But on the way, multiple other players, including sometimes the interviewer and radio phone-in questions, hit the ball, or topic of conversation, in all kinds of directions that had not been anticipated.
All of these require counter moves and particularly on radio talk shows one has to make quick decisions on how to best utilise the limited time and therefore it is not always worthwhile to go down every rabbit trail, or respond to every comment that one disagrees with. There is just not enough time on any radio programme to give a complete and total worldview and cover all the subjects raised adequately!
To know where we stand and the heroes we respect you need to read our published books. I am the author of The Greatest Century of Missions, The Greatest Century of Reformation, Victorious Christians – Who Changed the World, Sketches from South African History, Slavery, Terrorism and Islam – The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat, Biblical Principles for Africa, Old Testament Survey, In the Killing Fields of Mozambique, Holocaust in Rwanda, The Ten Commandments – God's Perfect Law of Liberty, Putting Feet to Your Faith and many others.
You cannot determine our Doctrinal, or philosophical positions by what our hosts or interviewers on radio programmes stand for.
I am not anti-Jewish. We have Jewish people in our Mission. Some of our best friends are enthusiastic supporters of the state of Israel.
By opposing those Jewish people who are communists, pornographers and blasphemers, I am no more anti-Jewish than our Lord Jesus Christ who declared to those Jews who opposed Him that they were like their father the devil who is a murderer and a liar from the beginning. Our Lord Jesus Christ condemned the “synagogue of satan” and so must we.
I have written and spoken against the National Socialism of Adolf Hitler and its secular humanism. I have condemned their euthanasia, abortion, gun control and other oppressive and murderous policies. As I have and continue to condemn the secular humanism of Marxism and the perverse wickedness of our secular humanist western world. That includes the policies of the United States of America.
However, you can rest assured that our Mission, Frontline Fellowship is pro-Christ and committed to a Biblical worldview, applying the Lordship of Christ to all areas of life. As such, we remind people that the very middle of the Bible declares: “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.” Psalm 118:8-9
May God continue to be your joy and strength.
Yours for the fulfilment of the Great Commission
Dr. Peter Hammond
