Below are two excellent presentations regarding today’s topics.
In my view, anybody who has seen images such as the above depicting the burning of a Bible together with an American flag at one of this summer’s criminal riots in the city of Portland, Oregon, realized in the photos iconic representations of a watershed moment in this summer’s arsons, looting, physical assaults, and murders, where the rubber finally met the road, i.e., where evidence finally surfaced that the real war is both ancient and ongoing: man verse God, totalitarianism versus freedom, evil versus good.
I believe in future history books pictures like this will be featured in a similar light just as images of the Nazi’s infamous Kristallnacht represent the prelude to Hitler’s bloody, genocidal regime in Germany in the last century.
The presentations below help reveal the truth, especially if the fog of riots, politics, and propaganda has the reader a bit confused and discouraged just now, because knowing the truth is the beginning of power.
We need to pay attention.
We need to pray.
We need to vote and participate in whatever way we can as if our freedoms, Constitutional rights, and indeed the very future of our representative republic called the United States of America depends upon this election.-PBN
How Cultural Marxism Is Grinding Christianity Down
By John Eidson, September 13, 2020, American Thinker
During a recent prayer session in support of Black Lives Matter, the pastor of St. Xavier Catholic Church in New York City instructed white congregants that they must renounce their white privilege to help “transform the church culture.” Using the noble cause of racial equality as a fig leaf, Black Lives Matter is in fact a violent political organization whose Marxist ideology is anti-Christian — and anti-American — in the most profound meaning of those terms. In many churches across America, cultural Marxists in the pulpit are quietly supplanting traditional Christian values with those of the hammer and sickle.
“Cultural Marxism” is the gradual process of grinding down Western democracies by subverting the pillars of their culture, the structures and institutions of family, religion, education, politics, law, the arts, and the media as they provide the social cohesion necessary to a functioning society. Challenge the legitimacy of these institutions, and a capitalist society can be overthrown from within without firing a shot. Known as the father of cultural Marxism, 20th-century Italian communist Antonio Gramsci summarized his stratagem for dismantling Christian nations thusly:
Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society.
Gramsci referred to his stratagem as “the long march through the institutions,” infiltrating a society’s cultural institutions and gradually supplanting their traditional values and principles with communism. Operating via stealth and deception, Gramsci’s disciples in this country have diligently labored to grind down every cultural institution in America, including its predominant religion, Christianity.
