Challenging: The "two-seedline" myth

The most extreme expression of Identity anti-Semitism is the so-called "two-seed" (or "seedliner") theory, developed by Wesley Swift (1913-1970), a former Methodist minister from Southern California and key figure in the transformation of British-Israelism into what was increasingly called "Christian Identity" (a religious ideology popular in extreme right-wing circles). According to the two-seed theory, the seduction of Eve by the Serpent in Eden was sexual, Cain was the product of their liaison and Cain, in turn, was the father of the Jewish people; all Jews, therefore, are children of the devil, literally demonic.

The other seedline in the two-seed scheme traces from Adam and Eve's other son, Abel, through the lost tribes to today's white European-derived believers.....Naturally, this sick and twisted belief has since drawn out other anti-Semites and their followers, such as "Teacher" Clifton A. Emahiser who ravenously takes on anyone who dares to oppose the "two-seed" theory. Take, for example, Emahiser's tirade against Jeffrey A. Weakley. Following are some excerpts from Emahiser's "Special Notice".

(For the sake of space - and wishing to keep our readers from being bored to tears - we have posted only a fraction of Emahiser's long, tedious, slanted and relentless anti-Semitic assertions about the Jews being sons of the serpent):

Special notice to ALL WHO DENY two seedline, #9
By: Teacher Clifton A. Emahiser
Fostoria, Ohio 44830

This matter of Two Seedline is of the utmost importance in our day, for we are beginning to see the culmination of this age-old "enmity" coming to a head. While it has been lying festering just below the surface for several thousands of years, today it is reaching its peak. It's like a giant abscess getting ready to erupt and spill out all its foul, infectious, corrupt, putrefying poison. And, while these great evil underground forces are at work, churchianity sits idly on the sidelines pretending all is well. In fact, the infection from this giant abscess is seeping into their midst, and they consider it "Christian." As if this were not bad enough, the anti-seedliners disavow the cause of the infection. To the anti-seedliners, it's just a theological game of words. They simply haven't done their homework on the subject.

The Refiner's Fire Response:

Bottom line up front: The Bible NEVER tells us that Eve had sex with the serpent as you clowns suggest; and the matter of the "Two Seedline" is a moot point because of Genesis 4:1 which shows us in every Bible version that Cain is a descendant of Adam. And so was Noah from whose line we ALL descended since he repopulated the Earth that YHWH (Yahweh) flooded. End of story! You people can't pick and choose what you want to believe of the Bible!

Genesis 4:1 - The man had sexual relations with Havah (Eve) his wife; she conceived, gave birth to Kayin (Cain - Hebrew: "acquisition") and said, "I have acquired a man from ADONAI."

End of discussion.

If you listen to the anti-seedliners, they will claim there was "no power of hell" at work in the Crucifixion of the Messiah. They delegate all of that to some kind of "spiritual" hocus-pocus, making mockery of the foundational tenets of Scripture. I addressed this subject of the "bruising of Messiah's heel" in my Research Papers Proving The Two Seedline Seduction Of Eve. This passage, by Dr. Lightfoot, vindicates what I said in that article:

"YAHSHUA'S HEEL BRUISED BY JUDAS!!!

"We have a direct connection, here, with Judas, and the 'serpent' of Genesis 3:14-15! We can see the connection between Judas and the 'serpent', if we read John 13:18: "I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his HEEL against me. "The scripture spoken of here, which was fulfilled in Judas, was Genesis 3:15! Does that sound 'spiritual'? Judas was a Kenite-Canaanite 'Jew-devil', a descendant of Cain fathered by Satan! However, there is a problem here because it says that 'he (Judas) hath lifted up his heel against me' whereas Genesis 3:15 says that 'thou (the seed of the serpent) shalt bruise his (Yahshua's) heel.' Is it the 'heel' of Judas or Yahshua that is affected? I am quite certain that John 13:18 is referring to Genesis 3:15, as it is indicating that it is a fulfillment of Scripture. Tell me, what other Scripture could it be? - there isn't any.....

The Refiner's Fire Response:

Mr. Emahiser has listed all kinds of Scriptures to back up his version of "the powers of hell" at work during the crucifixion. Bottom line, Mr. Emahiser: Since you supposedly believe in God, you know that HE is/was/and always will be in charge. He was in charge the day His Son was crucified (after all, as part of an ECHAD - Hebrew for plurality of ONE - Yeshua was YHWH-Come-in-the-Flesh, and He allowed Himself to be crucified). Yeshua was the Final SIN Sacrifice, sent - in part - for that very purpose, and He had to die in order to afford the rest of us eternal life. You can twist Scripture to suit your purposes from now 'till Doomsday, and you will still NOT be able to place Satan in a position of power on "crucifixion day".

Satan had nothing whatsoever to do with it. Satan, like you, is nothing but a CREATED being with no input into God's Grand Plan. God allowed Him to live, to be the "lord of the earth", and to deceive us. He even allowed Satan to try to tempt and bribe Yeshua. God will allow Satan's pawn, the "antichrist", to come and deceive many. God has also allowed "false prophets" (like you!) to descend upon and deceive unsuspecting people across the internet and "make a mockery of the foundational tenets of Scripture". God allowed Satan to "mess" with the minds of Judas, the Pharisees, the Romans, and the others who on that day insisted on crucifying Christ - and He used their decisions to His advantage. But God did not allow Satan to decide what would ultimately happen on that day, for it was - like everything else God does - predestined.

As for Dr. Lightfoot who insists that Genesis 3:14-15 is related to John 13:18 - We suggest that perhaps he should have used a Bible that was translated directly from Hebrew into English, rather than the KJV, which was translated from Hebrew into Greek into English and therefore lost some of the correct translation. (Plus, neither "Jesus" nor His apostles or disciples [besides Paul who spoke some Greek] spoke any other language besides Hebrew and Aramaic [a dialect of Hebrew] - and they certainly didn't speak "King James English!") While Genesis 3:14-15 does speak of a "heel", the context of John 13 does not refer back to Genesis. The Aramaic English New Testament (translated directly from Aramaic into English) offers the below, and states in a footnote that John 13 actually refers NOT to Genesis 3:14-15; but rather, to Psalm 41:8-11:

John 13: 18. It is not concerning all of you; I speak for those I know whom I have chosen, but that the Scripture might be fulfilled. He who eats bread with me has lifted his heel against me! 19. From now on I will say to you a thing before it happens, so that when it happens you will believe that I am. 20. Amen, amen I say to you that whoever receives him, who I send, receives me, and whoever receives me receives Him who sent me.

So, WHERE is the correlation, Mr. Emahiser?


...One thing I have noticed with the anti-seedliners is: they are strangely quiet about "Jewish" history, and never seem to quote "Jewish" history books. This should run up a red flag for us, indicating they're not as knowledgeable on the subject as they pretend to be. And that hardly qualifies them as students who have studied to show themselves approved, (2 Timothy 2:15). As I have said oft before, we need a Bible in one hand and a history book in the other ("Jewish" history books without exception).

The Refiner's Fire Response:

....And one WE have noticed is that YOU are "strangely quiet" about what the Bible REALLY says (especially Genesis 4:1 which clearly SAYS that Cain was Adam's child)!

When it comes to proving what Scripture says, the best thing to do is to let the BIBLE speak for itself. (See The Bible Only Hermaneutic: Using Scripture to Interpret Scripture. NOTHING is to be added to, or taken away from, Scripture. So why do we need a "history book in the other hand"? Those of us who believe God and the Bible don't need the writings of MAN.

Before I wrote one jot, Jeffery A. Weakley in his The Satanic Seedline, Its Doctrine and History, wrote this on page 29: "If you have encountered an argument and you are sincerely seeking an answer [against Two Seedline], I suggest that first you completely study it out in God's Word (look up definitions, check parallel passages, be sure of the context, etc.).

The Refiner's Fire Response:

...And what part of that don't you understand?

Mr Emahiser, your version of the Bible is "foul, infectious, corrupt, putrefying poison". YOU are the "underground forces at work" because YOU are the one spreading lies. You accuse those who don't agree with you of citing people with whom THEY agree. Well, YOU do the same thing, as evidenced by your excerpts of preterist John Lightfoot.....

If you want to add The Refiner's Fire to your list of those "anti-seedliners" who "disavow the cause of the infection", well, you go right ahead, because this is a free country and you can believe whatever you want. But, the fact of the matter is: YOU are the one who hasn't done his homework - and that is because you have IGNORED the Word of God!


The "Two Seedline" theory is based on extreme HATE and PREJUDICE and CANNOT be verified in the Bible. The main problem here seems to be that the "Two Seedliners" hate the Jews and want desperately to undermine the fact that they (the Jews) are God's Chosen people. Well, what God did and said CANNOT be changed, no matter HOW much we struggle, scream, or cry. The Jews are the Jews; the Gentiles are the Gentiles, and the Gentiles (who are "grafted in" to the Olive Tree ONLY through the atoning blood of Messiah) have chosen to follow a JEWISH God. People like Emahiser who like to call themselves "Christian" - yet TALK and ACT like any other heathen - only serve to give Christianity a bad name. A true Christian - rather than to "trash" his enemy - would do everything in his power to lead his enemy to the Lord....Most Jews are still in desperate need of Yeshua, so why try to turn them off toward Him, instead? Is that how a true "Christian" is supposed to act?

Fact: The "Two Seedliners" would love for Cain to have been Satan's son. In order to prove their point, they totally ignore Genesis 4:1! They have written untold essays and articles in order to show that Cain was cursed - ALL without once mentioning Genesis 4:1, which - in every single Bible version ever written - says THAT ADAM AND EVE HAD CAIN!

The "Two Seedliners" have also gone so far as to suggest that God created man and woman BEFORE He created Adam and Eve. WHERE in the Bible does it say that??? WHY do they insist on trying to change what GOD said?

Genesis 2:

7 Then ADONAI, God, formed a person (Hebrew: adam) from the dust of the ground (Hebrew: adamah) and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, so that he became a living being.

8 ADONAI, God, planted garden toward the east, in 'Eden, and there he put the person whom he had formed.

15 ADONAI, God, took the person and put him in the garden of 'Eden to cultivate and care for it.

18 ADONAI, God, said, "it isn't good that the person should be alone. I will make for him a companion suitable for helping him."

20 So the person gave names to all the livestock, to the birds in the air and to every wild animal. But for Adam there was not found a companion suitable for helping him.

21 Then God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the person; and while he was sleeping, he took one of his ribs and closed up the place from which he took it with flesh.

22 The rib which ADONAI, God, had taken from the person, he made a woman-person; and he brought her to the man-person.

23 The man-person said, "At last! This is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh. She is to be called Woman (Hebrew: ishah), because she was taken out of Man (Hebrew: ish)."

24 This is why a man is to leave his father and mother and stick with his wife, and they are to be one flesh.

25 They were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.


MR. EMAHISER: You are guilty of spreading false doctrine and deceiving those who don't know their Bibles very well. Stop twisting the Scriptures, stop all the hate talk, stop trying to change what the Bible says, and get down on your knees and repent. You have done nothing but add fuel to the fires of dissention. READ the Bible and realize that it's basically all about Israel and the Jews - the people with whom God made His covenant. READ AND HEED!
