It Ain't in There...

Compared to It's In There, It Ain’t in There!  It’s called Communism/Humanism!

Judges 21:25 ESV In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.
Proverbs 14:12 ESV There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.
"My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism." Karl Marx
 “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.” – Joseph Stalin (whether he said it or not, it’s still true!)

Education: Free, Public, and Godless

"Education is the most powerful ally of Humanism, and every American public school is a school of Humanism. What can the theistic Sunday school, meeting for an hour once a week, and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teaching?" - Charles F. Potter, Humanism: A New Religion 1930 p.128, signer of the Humanist Manifesto

Quote from agenda outlined in the Naked Communist, 1958:
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

Dear friends, I'm REALLY not trying to be mean, divisive, or unloving.  It's just that so many CHRISTians believe and support these things without thinking them through biblically.  Humanism and socialism are inherently anti-Bible and anti-God, created and pushed foward by men and women who hated God from Plato through Marx, Stalin, Hitler, and many others in the 1800s/early 1900s.  That's why those who subscribe to them eventually end up trying to "get God out" of the picture in every way they can, or turning Him into a "social" god or a god that "wouldn't do that/wouldn't condemn who I am", etc.  It is no accident that communist/socialist countries persecute believers.

Yes, the Gospel is the answer.  But a pastor is also called to equip Christians.  Be equipped dear friends...don't fall for it.

In Christ's love,

Eph 5:6-11 ESV Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. (7) Therefore do not become partners with them; (8) for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (9) (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), (10) and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. (11) Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
