Because many of you have been educated in the communist/liberal/democrat/progressive public school systems and universities, you have been indoctrinated with a false history lesson regarding the United States, its founders and its influence and activities both here and abroad. You don’t see America “as a shining city upon a hill” but as a evil colonialist power. You don’t see America as a Christian nation, divinely founded but as a robber of resources. You don’t understand that a world without America would be hell on earth; who else has been holding back the horrendous evils of our time? Even with America in place, the communists have murdered hundreds of millions of people in the twentieth century. How many more without America. This distorted history lesson is of course to be expected because a Godless person cannot understand the perspective of one that has a personal relationship with Jesus (“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”). The ungodly considers this perspective to be foolishness. In his own mind this is not possible since he knows it cannot be possible. The ability of critical thought is one wonderful aspect of becoming a “new creature in Christ”. This is the reason why the liberals are so easily duped and taken captive by the Devil at his will. They cannot or will not use critical thought to understand what is before them. Unlike many of the founding fathers, these teachers do not believe in Jesus and therefore by their very nature they distort the motives and meanings of all the founders writings and deeds. It is upon these same communists/liberals/democrats/progressives, that the responsibility for all the atrocities, murders, misery, poverty, theft and destruction around the world resides. Those who did not directly commit the crimes but pulled the lever for their Democratic representatives are also partakers in their guilt. Their ungodly religion/ideology is the same as the people who did do the crimes. They smugly think that if they (the new left) had been in charge or if only Trotsky had been leader instead of Stalin (he may have killed the people a little slower) it would have been different. Now take for example the mass genocides committed by their Marxist brethren in Russia, Viet Nam, Cambodia, North Korea, China, Cuba, etc.. Does this deter them from their leftist course? No, it does not. Why not? They of course will not accept responsibility for the atrocities committed in these countries or will ignore or even deny them. Anyway, because they are and were fighting for social justice, they count themselves exonerated from all these atrocities. “To make an omelet some eggs might have to be broken”. “The end justifies the means”. Their ideology is identical to the direct perpetrators and therefore the shed blood that goes with it. They use their various outlets of media, public schools, universities, etc. and expend great effort to deny, ignore, or even put the blame on someone else (like America). Maybe if they convince enough people of this lie their guilt will disappear. As a side note, even if every person in the entire world agreed with them their guilt would remain; God is not asking for a show of hands and soliciting opinions. He does not need for you to be saved. If no one at all accepts the gospel, He is able to raise up stones from the ground to believe. He is only giving you a chance because of his unmerited love. If you refuse, a stone will be fine. Now back to the subject. They take great care to rewrite history in order to obfuscate and to hold harmless themselves and their comrades. They use euphemisms like “social justice” to cover their true beliefs. Their deceitful efforts remind me of a joke that made the rounds in Moscow during the Communist heyday there that ran more or less as follows: “I’m confident of the future, and reasonably sure about the present, but the past seems to be constantly changing”. They may even look at these things as growing pains on the way to the ultimate Marxist social justice utopia but they refuse to see that Marxism has never produced anything on this earth but the above listed curses. No matter; their faith in their Marxist religion is held tightly and they will not dare to look upon the facts. They know that they must have a purpose and meaning for life before they pass into oblivion (otherwise they might go into a deep depression and commit suicide). At the same time, they know that there is no God (some are agnostic just in case they are wrong). Therefore, they work for “social justice” thinking that they are ushering in a positive world order of hope and change. And for this reason they will be accountable before God in that great day; not only because they did not know but because they did not want to know. I reference Paul’s letter to the Romans:
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Does any of the above seem familiar to you in our society today? It further reminds me of what the apostle Paul wrote to the Thessalonians:
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Does any of this ring a bell? Now regarding American history: have you considered the horrendous condition of the American Indian before the arrival of the Europeans? No, you have not because your teachers told you with distain of the evil colonialist white men who stole their land and gave them smallpox. First of all there were only a couple of million indians or so on the Eastern part of America when the settlers arrived. They could not begin to fill up this vast land and were very sparse. Through their idolatry and worship of demons they had degenerated into a condition more like animals with brains instead of creatures created in the image of God. Full of all treachery, theft, lying, murdering, oppression, and every other type of immorality, their society would have been a terrible place for a civilized man to abide. Fortunately for them, God sent white Europeans that carried with them the Gospel of Jesus. The founders also put much effort into teaching and converting the indians to Christ so that they would not perish but have eternal life. They taught them that unlike their chief God Okee who was vengeful and vindictive (as were the Algonquin themselves) that Jesus gave his life out of love to save all men and took their sins upon his own body for their redemption.
What then of the African? The same European nations that sent colonies to America sent colonies to Africa as well. Just as with the colonies in America, the European colonies that came into Africa brought the Gospel of Jesus with them also. By this many of the savage Africans also became human again. Can you even begin to imagine where the Africans would be today had it not been for the influence of the Gospel? They too would all be living in idolatry as total heathens participating in the same wickedness as the American indians. Instead of having cars, electricity, running water, health, and other good things, they would be living the same as the animals, only with a brain. Perhaps they would like to go back to the conditions that their forefathers dwelt in. Not! Thank God for the good news of Jesus.
The communists would have you believe that there is no God and that the wonderful utopia that Marxism offers can be ours if only we try again (don’t you think 6000 years is enough). Surly mans inner goodness will shine forth with social justice, peace, harmony and no racism. Perhaps Hillary or Obama can usher it in. If only they had been in charge during all the previous attempts to bring about “hope and change” it would have worked. The truth is that the core nature of man is utterly corrupt and sinful and can only be changed if he becomes a new creature in Christ. Having rejected the counsel of God these people have embraced communism as a substitute for the truth of the Gospel. This will end badly for them and for the world. Remember the words of God given through Malachi:
1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
So if you see a white man, maybe you should stop, shake his hand, and thank him for bringing salvation and humanity back to a world that had regressed into total depravity. No, it actually all started with a Jewish carpender about 2000 years ago and even before that from the very foundation of the world. Do you think maybe he was a white Jew? Just kidding. You guys worry way too much about race. Your avoidance of racial topics is also because of the marketing propaganda work of the Marxist media and learning institutions that have you feeling guilty of some crime that you never committed. They are the ones that are guilty, that stir up divisive things like race and gender, to gain an advantage and seize control. You should read the story about how Absalom, king David’s son, violently took over the kingdom of Israel from David. He was a communist before it was cool. And you thought it all started Marx.
