Now a guilty (sinful) person does not like being accused or exposed of his guilt. He must have a garment to cover his nakedness (guilt) just as Adam and his wife needed covering for their nakedness (sin). In desperation they tried sewing fig leaves together for garments but those were found to be unacceptable for the job because they did not involve any shedding of blood. They also knew the Lord would be visiting them soon and they were naked (news flash: he already knew everything). Yes, and not only that, but their own hands had woven the fig leaves together and they could never be covered (redeemed) by the works of their own hands. By the way, Israel, years later, tried to do the same thing using the Mosaic Law to cover themselves but all they did was violate the law continually. And the blood they were shedding (animal sacrifice) was not the right blood for eternal salvation. Someone had to pay. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Then the Lord in his mercy clothed Adam and his wife with animal skins. And how do you suppose he got those animal skins? And the shed blood of his getting those skins was a type of his own shed blood that was coming a few thousand years later in Jerusalam (and where else could it have been?) where Melchizedek (king of Salem, future Jerusalem) received an offering from Abraham (the Father of the Jews) when he was returning from delivering Lot (his nephew who lived in Sodom) and the Sodomites who had been taken captive by invaders. By the way, why do you suppose “righteous” Lot was living in Sodom which was soon to be destroyed by fire and brimstone? I’ll give you a hint: It was green and lush; a good place to tend cattle. And Abraham who understood the principal of redemption through the shedding of blood also was accounted to be righteous before God because he “believed” in the Lord. And thus it was not his good works that made him righteous but his faith in the Lord. Thus he understood the source of his righteousness. He demonstrated this when he took Isaac his son to mount Moriah (future Jerusalem) to sacrifice him there. The Lord had told him to do this to test him. Abraham told Isaac that the Lord “will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering” when Isaac questioned him where the sacrifice was. And wouldn’t you know it; the Lord showed Abraham a Ram caught by his horns in a thicket just after He had stopped him from killing his son Isaac. And that Ram was sacrificed instead of Isacc and this was a type of Christ being sacrificed for us, again in Jerusalem. And so now you see that all these things have been in the works from the beginning.
Now having partially set the historical record before you, let me fire up the hated flashlight (truth) again. The Communist, not believing any of the above scriptural records seeks a “worldly salvation” without any God and by the determination of man alone and his intellect. This involves the abolition of present day society (a Bourgeoisie creation) as we know it, or as Obama put it, “fundamental transformation”. All of it’s institutions and norms (“everything that exists deserves to perish”). All of its morals and definitions of good and evil. The Communist considers all of the above biblical scriptures nonsense and of course considers himself to be more intelligent than the rest of us because in our primitive state we believe such fables. Upon spotting a righteous person who walks out and lives by the scriptures somewhere within his reach he might even ford rivers and scale mountains to get at that person to destroy him. Inexplicably, even though he should have pity on this poor ignorant person, not as intelligent as himself, yet he hates him. You see, the righteous man by the way he conducts his life, even without words, is demonstrating to the criminal of his guilt. This is why Cain killed his brother Abel. This spirit goes back to the very cradle of mankind. It did not start with the Left; they, being free of conscience, only continue it with a zeal. Now when a Leftist gains power, he endeavors to turn inside out the very definition of what is right and what is wrong. The avowed Communist, Van Jones (former Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality under Obama), alluded to this with his now famous words of “top down, bottom up and inside out” when speaking to a group of his leftist followers on how to overthrow America from within (fundamental transformation). This is the same Van Jones that espoused the idea of dropping the radical pose for the radical ends. This is why he dresses and carries himself well. If he wore his true radical agenda on his sleeve people would despise him.
In the old days (1920s through 1950s) the Communists in America had sworn allegiance to Stalin and the USSR. Their enemy was America and they actively worked to overthrow it and bring it under the boot of the USSR. The children of those same Communists (now referred to as the “New Left” and “progressives”) had their faces rubbed in the crimes of Stalin that were broadcast to the world by Nikita Khrushchev who treacherously took over after Stalin’s death. He was able to obscure the intrinsic evils of the ideology of Socialism by blaming it all on Stalin (This sounds like how Adam blamed Eve and Eve blamed the serpent. Too bad the Serpent didn’t have anyone to blame. But God judged them all). This was just another modified example of the same fig leaf covering Adam tried. Now this “new left” is the generation of Hillary and Bill Clinton and also of Obama’s parents. No longer then wanting to identify with Stalin they took on a more nihilistic spirit than even their parents did. Destroy America even if we don’t have a functioning plan of what to replace it with. This led to all kinds of social upheaval in the 1960s. But when they recreated themselves as the “New Left” their ideology turned out to be exactly the same as their old fogey parents (As the old Russian proverb says: “the nut never falls far from the tree”). Van Jones and other Leftist ideologues hope that in accomplishing this annihilation of Western society, their guilt will be taken away and their lives will have worthwhile meaning. Social Justice at last. If they can change the very nature of morality as well and it’s very source (God) they will finally be free of conscience; so they think. But ridding yourself of a Godly conscience is very dangerous because if the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! And if a man is enveloped in darkness how can he find his way out of the abyss? He will need a flashlight to see but the batteries of the man without conscience have burned out.
Again, upon his gaining of power, the man of truth enters the Leftist’s sights as an enemy. Joseph Goebbels, the socialist Nazi minister of propaganda, put it this way: “It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State.” This is why the Communist governments around the world set up “Reeducation Camps” and prison systems to torture people of faith into agreeing with themselves and to cause them to deny their own faith in God (they must put out the light that is exposing them for who they are). They wish to redefine good and evil. They claim that morality is just an arbitrary “Bourgeoisie” concept put in place to keep the “proletariat” (workers) oppressed and under their control so that they can live off their backs. This damnable lie then frees the Leftist from all morality and now his dream has come true. And just imagine dear reader what a man will become when freed from conscience and morality. Then again, no need to guess, just look around the world at the Communist regimes and their proxy nations. And don’t forget to take a gander at their spiritual brethren, the Muslims (remember, Communism is Islam without a God and Islam is Communism with a God).
Out of these motives have grown a number of ills to American society. Lets take a look at one of the Lefts endeavors at social justice, “black lives matter”. This sounds good doesn’t it? Of course, all lives matter. But do the lives of unborn babies matter? And if a white police officer is killed by a Negro did his life matter? Did O. J. Simpson’s white wife’s life matter? It seems that it matters if a white police officer kills a black hoodlum. And if the Black Panthers (icons of the “New Left”) threaten white people’s lives if they come to the polls to vote does this matter? The Communist, former Attorney General Eric Holder, refused to prosecute them and dropped all the charges even though the case was complete and a slam dunk against them. And if the black rioters during their riot tried to break open the head of a white truck driver (Reginald Denny) in LA, attempting to murder him, did that matter? The Left justifies all these evils using a concept they have dubbed “institutional racism”. Meaning, the racism that is intrinsic in White America, drove them to and made them do it. This also is a damnable lie. Those hoodlums only needed the restraints to be removed and their true intrinsic nature came out. And the excuse of “institutional racism” sounds like another type of a fig leaf covering (Do you think if I live to be 100 I will ever hear someone say, “I did the crime and am responsible”?). The Soviet Communists used to label these types of criminal elements in their country as “socially friendly” elements or as Marx called them “lumpenproletariat”. They don’t seem very friendly to me if you happen to be white but in their case they were referring to the thieves, rapists, murderers, etc. as friendly elements regardless of skin tone. The criminals that could not be redeemed in the USSR and were without mercy were the “politicals” which had never done anything wrong. And why would the common criminals not have been considered friendly? They were just “primitive revolutionaries” or as Marx called them, “lumpenproletariat”, who needed some polishing up to enter the ranks of the Communist regime and they really didn’t even need that either. They fit just fine already. Are not the Communists themselves just another criminal gang? See here what wikipedia writes about Stalin: “When Lenin formed the Bolsheviks, Jughashvili (he changed his name to Stalin) eagerly joined him. Jughashvili (Stalin) proved to be a very effective organizer of men as well as a capable intellectual. Among other activities, he wrote and distributed propaganda, organized strikes, and raised funds through bank robberies, kidnappings, extortion, and assassinations.”
These few above listed examples of the skewed ways of thinking with the Leftists/Progressives/Communists are indicative of people who are at war with God. They want to “change” the moral underpinnings of societies around the world and give us a new “hope” of a redeemed world where “social justice” abounds for everyone without any God, thereby resulting in a “fundamental transformation” of society and all it’s norms. It is a pipe dream of the left that has caused nothing but destruction, poverty, and death wherever it has spread around the world. They also justify these fruits of Leftism with the concept of, as the Russian proverb put it, “when you chop wood, wood chips fly”. The American version of this is “when you make an omelet, you have to break some eggs”. And they think that because it is now them that are in power it will be different this time. As Obama put it “We are the ones we have been waiting for”. Seems very arrogant to me. It’s just the same old wickedness that started in the Garden and was ended at the cross for those who believe. But they will not come to the cross and therefore their sins remain. Tic Toc, Tic Toc.
