SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM
In this series I am not limiting my discussion on education solely to public schools and colleges alone, but also to the mindset that has permeated our entire society. This aspect of education in crisis is far more sinister and deceptive than most could ever imagine, as its goal is to remove any hope in God held by society. It will use every available tool as a means to eradicate the knowledge of God, religion, and especially the Lord Jesus Christ from the hearts and minds of mankind.
How does this mindset work? It can be likened to a powerful weapon of atheism, mounted on a torrent of intolerance, and loaded with ammunition full of promises, all aimed to fire at you! It seeks to impose its intolerance upon your tolerance; you must be willing to accept its total lack of willingness to accept anything or anyone. If you do not fully accept this mindset, then you are categorized as intolerant, homophobic, racist, etc.
The ammunition of promise is to bring about a world in which full equality, an abundance of material benefits, and complete social justice will prevail for everyone. This mindset thus appeals to the masses in terms of their universal needs and desires. In other words, it offers all things to all people. So what is this mindset? It is communism! Since most people really do not know how to recognize the true creature of communism, we must endeavor to explain it so that it may be rightly identified.
The approach of the communist mindset utilizes both a positive and a negative aspect. Negatively, communism attempts to create deep-seated discontent with existing conditions. Positively, it offers a tempting challenge to all mankind to join forces in forging a world in which the exploitation of man by his fellowman will be forever ended. Why would people be attracted to communism? The following four components must be considered:
1. Economic Attraction. During periods of economic depression and high unemployment, many people suffer severe hardships. Faced with their personal needs being placed in jeopardy, people become willing to accept severe and desperate remedies. They become susceptible to Communist claims that economic problems are the fault of Capitalism, and these problems will magically disappear under Communism. Concerned with eliminating the cause of poverty and hunger, many conclude they have nothing to lose by rebelling against the prevailing economic order.
2. Sociological Attraction. This component is based on the exploitation of social injustices and inequalities. Everyone who has been the victim of some form of social injustice or prejudice is a potential recruit. General dissatisfaction with current conditions is often sufficient to gain adherents. Meanwhile, others are attracted by a desire to establish a society in which all injustice has been eliminated. Whether the issues used are real, imagined, or purposely planned, the movement is viewed as the champion of social protest, which is purported to be the only striving force to improve the conditions of the oppressed.
3. Political Attraction. The illusion that a caring government will meet all the needs of the destitute is presented as a deceptive lure to the people. The promise of leadership that will make all things common and work towards legislating equality for everyone is made. The destitute and downtrodden are given hope in the form of a government that they can depend upon.
4. Psychological Attraction. This component satisfies the emotional needs. The insecurity created by feelings of personal inadequacy is eliminated by the idea of government-provided security. It also provides a retreat for those who cannot bear the responsibility of individual decision or action. In this scenario, important decisions are made not by the individuals, but by the leaders for the individual. For those who may desire to “do something,” this communist mindset enables the person to engage in endless rounds of meetings, educational classes, literature/material distribution, and even organize demonstrations. Before long the individual loses himself in the movement and makes it the priority of his life, even sacrificing family and work. Perhaps the worst aspect is that it can also become a substitute for those who have lost faith in God.
Socialism And Communism Defined
In order to properly understand what is being instilled in our youth by the educational system, we must establish the difference between Socialism and Communism. The word “socialism” comes from the Latin word socius, which means an “associate” or “ally.” In Europe during the Nineteenth Century, socialism referred to the views held by those who believed that the interests of the individual should be subordinated to the welfare of society as a whole. On the other hand, “communism” is derived from the Latin word communis, which means “that which is common.” In its political sense, Communism translates to a society in which material goods are held and shared in common.
In part one of this series, we brought you the foundational pillar of how students are “educated” in public (government) schools. They are treated like Pavlov’s dogs through sensory training. Can some of our modern educational “training” be similar to communism? Yes! One of the three theoretical concepts in communism claims that matter is self-sufficient, self-developing, self-perpetuating, and, thus, that there is no God. They allege that man does not have a spiritual soul destined for immortality and that he is not distinct from other forms of life. They further conclude that all religions and moral codes derived from spiritual concepts are based on fantasy. This is why they believe the poor and oppressed remain passive in the face of exploitation by the ruling class. Karl Marx exclaimed, “Religion is the opium of the people!”
When we look at the global agenda, found within the United Nations’ Agenda 21 and Millennial Development Goals, to bring us all towards common ground and mutual justice for everyone, it becomes clear that communism is the weapon chosen by our world leaders for their new global society. Religion is tolerated by the elites in order to keep the unsuspecting masses deceived so they can progress with their agenda. Trillions of dollars have been spent to eradicate poverty in the world without any evidence of success; trillions of dollars more have been thrown at education in the U.S., yielding results that are less than sub-par; trillions of dollars on top of that have been spent on the economy, and the only thing we can boast about is how much debt we have grown while maintaining high unemployment.
Limited Islamic Toleration
How does one account for the tolerance towards Islam? In the Koran it says only Muslims are called by Allah to rightfully guide mankind. As well, the “noble” book states that Islam must prevail over all religions. Islam boasts of how nations under Islamic law live under a “just society.” It becomes overly obvious just how fallacious that notion is when one looks at the reality of the societies currently under Islamic influence. However, Muslim nations enjoy the benefit of favoritism because they house millions of people who remain mostly illiterate. These deceived human beings are ripe for more fairy tales and subjugation by their money-hungry leaders. The Bible teaches in Revelation, Chapter 18, that those who are willing to trade with the rebuilt Babylon will be enriched by the abundance of her delicacies. In conclusion, Communism promises the common man security in a utopian society, while simultaneously promising to slake the thirst for power and control of those that desire to lead and unfit-minded people that are willing to blindly follow along.
The modern day Zeitgeists have infiltrated every fabric of society to advance their agenda. In our schools humanism is taught as the answer to man’s ills. It is very noteworthy to understand that the tenants of humanism are analogous to those of communism. Considering the influence on media, television is a prime example of a means used for mass deception. Programs designed for TV are prepared to subtly instill distractions and to desensitize traditional thoughts, beliefs, morals, etc. The new “norm” is to embrace change; hence, presidential candidates run entire campaigns with slogans promising great change. Although they never define what change they desire to make, the new liberally minded (brainwashed) citizen is moved by this “Manchurian” buzzword. The “how” is more important than the “what.” The brainwashed society is ripe with dissatisfaction, and thus believes the “old” way is outdated and the new way should immediately be embraced. The outcomes are redefined to shield the fact that the planners are using pure deception. Instead, they are glorified and become the source of hope to challenge a new generation that they can make a difference by following the new way.
Communism And The Purpose Driven Life
A paramount example of all these communist principles put into action is the Purpose Driven Life strategy. This is a movement that came in “under the radar” according to its founder, Rick Warren. The concepts of this demonic method attach lies to Biblical truths that create a new outcome of good works for the church, instead of the anointed preaching of the Gospel! It uses the same principles of communism to gain acceptance and unconditional devotion to its leader. Initially, fueled by demonic influence, Warren first started out using his book, “The Purpose Driven Church” to influence pastors. No longer called preachers of the Gospel, preachers were reclassified as “change agents” and “facilitators.” Then, Warren produced his most widely known and well-accepted work entitled “Purpose Driven Life.” Within this strategy dissenters are sifted out and removed from “Purpose Driven” churches, thus paving the way for Warren’s new means of touching the world for Christ to become the only acceptable method!
Warren’s next step on the ladder of deceit was to use his new “missions” minded flock to embrace a conceptual United Nations plan dubbed the PEACE plan. The preaching of the Gospel is not the cornerstone of PEACE. Instead, the crux of Warren’s mission is to meet the humanitarian needs of mankind. It includes his invitation for world leaders to use his new followers for distribution of their policies through cooperation with all religious faiths in the world. The new paradigm is to provide social justice, and, according to Warren, this includes responding to the five giants that afflicted humankind: Spiritual Emptiness, Self-Centered Leadership, Poverty, Disease, and Illiteracy. Once again, these goals are identical to those of the United Nations’ Agenda 21 and Millennial Development Goals’ objective.
In next month’s article I plan to deal in greater detail with the dialectical concept created by Frederick Engels and used by his friend, Karl Marx. Please keep in mind that these men were all influenced by worldly thought. The wisdom of this world is not of God; it uses sensory and emotional stimuli to draw its followers. Only the Holy Spirit can draw someone to Jesus Christ. Any method used aside from the preaching of the Gospel just invites man to build his own society apart from God. Participation and membership are the hallmarks of having a changed life in this new globally-minded society. Although they will tell adherents that by being a part of the Purpose Driven movement they are in relationship with Christ, it is no different than the relationship a Roman Catholic has with the Roman Catholic church, or a Mormon to the Mormon church, or a Muslim towards Islam. It is a works-based relationship: what you do defines who you are. Hmmm . . . sounds a lot like communism, doesn’t it? The author of all these false ways is Satan. King David said he hated every false way.
