Truths That Transform – The Bankruptcy of Socialism

Truths That Transform – The Bankruptcy of Socialism

Posted by


THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT OUR NATION TODAY, AS A NATION, IS ADRIFT; WE ARE LIKE A SHIP WITHOUT A RUDDER, A COMPASS OR EVEN A GOAL. D. JAMES KENNEDY
MINISTRIES PRESENTS TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM. THIS WEEK ON TRUTHS THAT
TRANSFORM WE’RE TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT THE RISING
SPECTER OF SOCIALISM. RIGHT NOW 75% OF STUDENTS
IN COLLEGE SUPPORT SOCIALISM, THINK IT’S THE
BEST FORM OF GOVERNMENT. WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES
OF ELECTING A NUMBER OF PROPONENTS OF
SOCIALISM TO CONGRESS? I DO BELIEVE THAT
SOCIALISM IS ON THE RISE RIGHT NOW AND I THINK IT’S
A DIRECT CORRELATION TO THE LOSS OF A
BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW. WHERE IS OUR
NATION HEADED? JOIN US FOR TODAY’S
TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM. ♪ HAPPY NEW YEAR, AND
WELCOME TO TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM, A PRODUCTION
OF D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES, WHERE WE ARE
STANDING FOR TRUTH AND DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. THE BIBLE APPLIES TO EVERY
AREA OF LIFE, AND WE EXIST AS A MINISTRY TO HELP YOU
SEE HOW THAT’S TRUE, SO THAT YOU CAN ARTICULATE,
DEFEND, AND ACT UPON WHAT YOU BELIEVE. SOCIALISM IS GROWING IN
POPULARITY, ESPECIALLY WITH YOUNG AMERICANS. BUT AS YOU’LL DISCOVER
TODAY, IT IS COMPLETELY CONTRARY TO
BIBLICAL TEACHING. LATER WE WILL HEAR FROM
SOMEONE WHO IS ON THE FRONT LINES OF THE
BATTLE AGAINST ECONOMIC, ENVIRONMENTAL, AND
GOVERNMENTAL SOCIALISM. AND WE WILL GIVE YOU A
CRUCIAL OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD. AS WE BEGIN, OUR OWN
DR. JERRY NEWCOMBE TAKES A LOOK AT WHERE AMERICA
MAY BE HEADED. THE DSA IS THE DEMOCRATIC
SOCIALISTS OF AMERICA. IT’S AN ORGANIZATION
THAT WANTS TO COMPLETELY RESTRUCTURE
AMERICAN SOCIETY. THEY GAINED MOMENTUM,
FOLLOWING BERNIE SANDERS’ PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN IN
2016, WHEN HE RAN ON A PLATFORM THAT FOCUSED
ON WEALTH INEQUALITY. WHEN YOUNG PEOPLE AND
WORKING PEOPLE CAN SAY LOUDLY AND CLEARLY,
‘ENOUGH IS ENOUGH’ SOCIALISM IS GROWING IN
POPULARITY, ESPECIALLY AMONG MILLENNIALS. I DO BELIEVE THAT
SOCIALISM IS ON THE RISE RIGHT NOW AND I THINK IT’S
A DIRECT CORRELATION TO THE LOSS OF A BIBLICAL
WORLD VIEW- THE VACUUM- WHEN YOU CREATE A VACUUM
IT’LL ALWAYS BE FILLED AND IF YOU TAKE GOD OUT
IT’LL BE FILLED BY MAN. AND GOD ALWAYS GIVES US
MORE LIBERTY AND FREEDOM THAN MAN DOES. THE REALITY IS WE’RE GOING
TO INCREASINGLY MOVE TOWARD SOCIALISM IN
AMERICA, I MEAN, RIGHT NOW WE FOUND IN OUR STUDY LAST
MONTH OF 37% OF AMERICANS SAY THEY PREFER
SOCIALISM TO CAPITALISM. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE
MILLENNIAL GENERATION IT’S A SIGNIFICANT MAJORITY OF
THEM WHO PREFER THAT SO, I MEAN, WE’RE MOVING
IN THAT DIRECTION. AND WHY NOT? SINCE THAT IS WHAT THEY’VE
BEEN TAUGHT LARGELY IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOR THE
LAST COUPLE OF DECADES. WHAT’S HAPPENING IS
COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE COMING FORTH FROM PUBLIC
HIGH SCHOOLS AND PUBLIC COLLEGES FULLY BAKED AS
SOCIALISTS BECAUSE THEY HAVE PROFESSORS WHO HAVE
BRAINWASHED THEM BASICALLY AND THEY HAVEN’T BEEN
REEDUCATED BY LIFE YET. AND THE RESULTS OF THIS
CONSTANT DRUMBEAT FOR SOCIALISM CAN BE SEEN
ALL OVER AMERICA. SOCIALISM IS IN MY
DEFINITION I WOULD SAY PEOPLE HAVING WHAT THEY
NEED, PEOPLE BEING ABLE TO LIVE WITH DIGNITY KNOWING
THAT THEY HAVE WHAT THEY NEED. I THINK SOCIALISM MEANS
DOING WHAT IS BEST IN SOCIETY FOR EVERYONE. SOCIALISM IS CARING
FOR YOUR PEOPLE. MILLENNIALS ARE GROWING
UP THINKING SOCIALISM IS ACCEPTABLE. WE’RE GOING TO BECOME A
MARXIST, COMMUNIST NATION. THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN
IN AMERICA IF WE DON’T REVERSE WHAT’S
HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. ONE OF THE RISING STARS OF
THE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS IS 29 YEAR-OLD FORMER
BARTENDER, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ. SHE WANTS TO EXPAND
MEDICARE FOR ALL. SOUNDS NICE, BUT WHO’S
GOING TO PAY FOR IT. MEDICARE FOR ALL,
IS IT TOO EXPENSIVE? NO, PEOPLE OFTEN SAY, HOW
ARE YOU GOING TO PAY FOR IT AND I FIND THE QUESTION
SO PUZZLING BECAUSE HOW DO YOU PAY FOR SOMETHING
THAT’S MORE AFFORDABLE, HOW DO YOU PAY
FOR CHEAPER RENT? HOW DO YOU PAY FOR,
YOU JUST PAY FOR IT! CRITICS NOTE THAT THE
ENTIRE GDP OF THE COUNTRY IS CURRENTLY ABOUT
$19 TRILLION A YEAR. YET, THE CONGRESSWOMAN’S
PLAN WOULD SUDDENLY ADD AS MUCH AS $40 TRILLION
OF NEW SPENDING OVER 10 YEARS, TO OUR ALREADY
OVER-BURDENED SYSTEM. YOU CAN’T SPEND MORE MONEY
THAN YOU HAVE AND YOU CAN’T BORROW MONEY YOU
CAN’T AFFORD TO PAY BACK. THOSE ARE THE BASIC
FUNDAMENTALS OF THE ECONOMY, WHETHER YOU’RE A
FAMILY, AN INDIVIDUAL OR A COUNTRY, AND CLEARLY THIS
COUNTRY HAS SPENT MONEY IT DIDN’T HAVE AND IT
BORROWED MONEY THAT IT CAN’T POSSIBLY PAY BACK IN
THE LIFETIMES OF THE NEXT 3 GENERATIONS. IT’S REALLY, I WOULD CALL
IT A SIN AGAINST OUR GRANDCHILDREN IS WHAT
THIS REALLY AMOUNTS TO. THE IRONY OF ALL THIS
IS THAT SOCIALISM HAS A CONSISTENTLY TERRIBLE
TRACK RECORD. IN 5500 YEARS OF RECORDED
HISTORY YOU CANNOT POINT TO ANY SOCIALISTIC NATION
THAT HAS INCREASED FREEDOM AND INCREASED PROSPERITY
FOR THE PEOPLE. YET RIGHT NOW 75% OF
STUDENTS IN COLLEGE SUPPORT SOCIALISM AND
THINK IT’S THE BEST FORM OF GOVERNMENT. NOW THERE’S NOTHING
HISTORICALLY YOU CAN POINT TO, THERE’S NOTHING
STATISTICALLY YOU CAN POINT TO, BUT THAT’S WHAT
THEY’VE BEEN TAUGHT. IT IS THE FAILURE OF THE
CHURCH THAT’S EVEN OPENED UP THIS DOOR, FOR THIS
COLLECTIVISTIC APPROACH TO THE WELLBEING OF SOCIETY. SOCIALISM IS A MILDER AND
GENTLER FORM OF COMMUNISM. BOTH SYSTEMS CLAIM THAT WE
HAVE A RIGHT TO WHAT YOU OWN. IN FACT, YOU REALLY
DON’T OWN IT. WE OWN IT. WE IS THE STATE. THAT’S A FORM OF
THEFT, AND IT’S WRONG. THE CHALLENGE TO CHRISTIAN
CONSERVATIVES IS TO EXPLAIN HOW FREE MARKETS
ARE MORE BIBLICAL AND COMPASSIONATE TO ALL THAN
IS GOVERNMENT TAKE-OVER OF EVERYTHING. THIS IS A MESSAGE WE
CLEARLY NEED TO ARTICULATE TO THE NEXT GENERATION. THEY SIMPLY SAY, WHAT’S
HAPPENING NOW ISN’T WORKING. THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT WHERE
WE ARE NOW IS THAT PEOPLE WANT ANSWERS. THE GOOD NEWS IS THEY’RE
WILLING TO MAKE CHOICES THAT ARE OUTSIDE THE NORM. SO, I BELIEVE THAT THIS
ENERGY TOWARDS SOCIALISM CAN BE HARNESSED AND
CHANGED BUT IT CAN’T BE DONE SO UNLESS THERE IS A
CLEAR ARTICULATION OF THE BENEFITS AND THEN THE
FEATURES OF WHAT OUR WORLD VIEW HAS TO OFFER. D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES

FOR JESUS CHRIST.” IT’S DISTURBING THAT THERE
ARE SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS OF YOUNG PEOPLE IN AMERICA
WHO EMBRACE SOCIALISM. AND IT’S EVEN MORE
DISTURBING THAT SOME OF THE PURVEYORS OF THIS
BANKRUPT IDEOLOGY ARE NOW BEING ELECTED TO
NATIONAL OFFICE. I’M JOINED NOW BY MY VERY
GOOD FRIEND, JENNIFER KENNEDY CASSIDY, DAUGHTER
OF DR. D. JAMES KENNEDY. JENNIFER, YOUR DAD HAD NO
ILLUSIONS WHATSOEVER ABOUT THE IMPACT OF
SOCIALISM DID HE? NO, HE DIDN’T. HE KNEW THAT SOCIALISM WAS
UNBIBLICAL, AND THAT IT WAS DANGEROUS TO EVERYONE. SADLY, THERE ARE MANY
PEOPLE WHO MISTAKENLY THINK THAT SOCIALISM IS
A WAY OF DEMONSTRATING COMPASSION FOR THE
DISADVANTAGED. AND THEY EVEN WRONGLY
THINK CHRISTIANITY CALLS FOR GOVERNMENT TO
REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH AND DO THE WORK OF CHARITY. BUT THEY COULDN’T
BE MORE WRONG. SOCIALISM NEVER WORKS
BECAUSE IT’S BASED ON A FALSE UNDERSTANDING
OF HUMAN NATURE. AND IT SEEKS TO REPLACE
GOD AND FREEDOM WITH GOVERNMENT AND BONDAGE. MY FATHER UNDERSTOOD THIS
BETTER THAN ANYONE, AND HE NEVER TIRED OF SOUNDING
THE ALARM ON THE DAMAGE THAT SOCIALISM
WOULD INFLICT. HE SHARES MORE IN THIS
PORTION OF HIS MESSAGE, “THE BANKRUPTCY
OF SOCIALISM.” THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT OUR
NATION TODAY, AS A NATION, IS ADRIFT. WE ARE LIKE A SHIP WITHOUT
A RUDDER, A COMPASS OR EVEN A GOAL. WE DON’T KNOW
WHICH WAY TO HEAD, OR EVEN WHICH
WAY IS WHICH WAY, BECAUSE WE HAVE TURNED
AWAY FROM THE WORD OF GOD AND FROM THE SCRIPTURES
AND FROM THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT THE FOUNDERS OF THIS
NATION AND OUR FATHERS BELIEVED IN AND LOOKED TO,
AND UPON WHICH THEY BUILT THIS GREAT COUNTRY. AS JOHN QUINCY ADAMS SAYS,
THAT “THE GENIUS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION IS
THAT WE UNITED IN ONE INDISSOLUBLE BOND, THE
PRINCIPLES OF CIVIL GOVERNMENT AND
THE PRINCIPLES OF CHRISTIANITY.” BUT THAT BOND IS BEING
INCREASINGLY SEVERED IN OUR TIME, AND SO WE ARE
ADRIFT; WE ARE LOST. WE DON’T KNOW WHY WE ARE
HAVING THE PROBLEMS THAT WE ARE HAVING. THOUGH WE HAVE SEEN THE
GREATEST EXPERIMENT IN SOCIALISM IN THE HISTORY
OF THE WORLD IN THE UNION OF SOVIET SOCIALIST
REPUBLICS COME TO A DISASTROUS END, CRASH
IN FLAMES AND BURN, AND BRING UTTER DISASTER
AND BANKRUPTCY TO THAT NATION AND PERHAPS FAMINE,
STILL SOCIALISM IS ALIVE, THOUGH NOT WELL,
IN AMERICA. WELL WE USE OTHER
NAMES FOR IT. WE CALL IT THE
“WELFARE STATE,” “A BENEVOLENT GOVERNMENT,”
BUT IT’S THE SAME THING, REGARDLESS OF WHAT
YOU CALL IT. IT IS ALWAYS THAT “GOOD
INTENTIONS” ON THE PART OF SOME POLITICIANS OR
BUREAUCRATS THAT LEADS US INTO THIS DISASTER. BUT THE THING THAT WE NEED
TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS
EXTRAORDINARILY WASTEFUL AND EXTRAORDINARILY
INEFFICIENT AND ALSO THAT IT CREATES FAR MORE
PROBLEMS THAN IT HELPS. PROFESSOR THOMAS SOWELL
OF STANFORD UNIVERSITY, ONE OF AMERICA’S LEADING
BLACK ECONOMISTS, SAID THIS: THE AMOUNT OF MONEY NECESSARY
TO LIFT EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD IN AMERICA
ABOVE THE POVERTY LINE IS ONE-THIRD OF WHAT WE ARE
CURRENTLY SPENDING. BUT BECAUSE OF THE
INCREDIBLE WASTEFULNESS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT,
WHAT WE DO HE SAYS IS SIMPLY FIND THAT THE MONEY
ENDS UP IN THE POCKETS OF HIGHLY PAID ADMINISTRATORS,
CONSULTANTS AND STAFF. THAT IS WHY THE TWO
“BEDROOM COUNTIES” TO WASHINGTON DC, ONE IN
VIRGINIA, ONE IN MARYLAND, HAVE THE HIGHEST PER CAPITA
INCOME IN AMERICA TODAY. BUT YOU KNOW WE CAN’T
BLAME IT ON THE POLITICIANS, AT LEAST
CERTAINLY NOT ALL OF IT. WE OFTEN HEAR THAT THE
POLITICIANS ARE JUST BUYING OUR VOTES BY TAXING AND
“GIVING” US MORE THINGS. GIVING US MORE THINGS THAT
THEY TAKE THE MONEY FROM FROM OURSELVES. THAT’S TRUE. BUT WHY ARE
THEY DOING THAT? BECAUSE WHEN THEY TRY
TO BE RESPONSIBLE, AND WHEN THEY TRY TO
RESTRAIN GOVERNMENT SPENDING, WE VOTE THEM
RIGHT OUT OF OFFICE. THE PROBLEM IS WITH OUR
OWN HEARTS, OUR OWN GREED, OUR OWN DESIRE FOR
SOMETHING FOR NOTHING- FOR MORE AND MORE AND MORE
FROM THE GOVERNMENT TROUGH. THAT IS THE PROBLEM. AND THAT IS WHY THE
POLITICIANS ACT THAT WAY. I’LL TELL YOU THIS, IF
YOUR EYES WERE OPENED AND YOU SAW THE COLOSSAL
WASTEFULNESS, IF YOU SAW THE MOUNTING
FEDERAL DEBT WHICH IS GOING TO BE DISASTROUS, IF
YOU SAW THE INEFFICIENCY AND INEFFECTIVENESS OF
THESE GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS, AND YOU KNOW THAT THEY
DON’T WORK AND THEY CREATE MORE PROBLEMS
THAN THEY SOLVE, WHEN A POLITICIAN TELLS
YOU THAT HE IS GOING TO TAX MORE AND SPEND MORE,
HE WOULDN’T GET YOUR VOTE. BUT WHEN HE TOLD YOU THAT
HE WAS GOING TO CUT TAXES AND CUT SPENDING, HE WOULD
HAVE YOUR VOTE AND HE WOULD STAY IN BUT SOMEONE
STUDIED WITNESSES THAT COME TO CONGRESS AND ALL
OF THOSE COMMITTEES AND MAKE ALL OF
THEIR PROPOSALS. AND FOR EVERYONE
THAT COMES AND SAYS, “WE NEED TO CUT TAXES
AND CUT SPENDING,” 134 OF US COME AND TELL
THEM, “SPEND MORE. SPEND MORE. WE WANT
MORE, MORE, MORE FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.” THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO BEGIN WITH. IT ALL COMES OUT
OF OUR POCKETS. MAY GOD, THROUGH THE
TRUTH OF HIS WORD, OPEN OUR EYES AND CHANGE
OUR HEARTS THAT WE MIGHT TRUST IN THE LIVING GOD
AND FOLLOW HIS PRINCIPLES. AND MY FRIENDS, UNLESS WE
TRUST IN CHRIST AS OUR SAVIOR, UNLESS WE KNOW
THAT HIS FATHER HAS PROMISED TO “PROVIDE ALL
OF OUR NEEDS OUT OF HIS RICHES AND GLORY,” WE ARE
GOING TO CONTINUE TO LOOK TO A PROVIDENT STATE, AND
WE ARE GOING TO MOVE MORE AND MORE INTO DESPOTISM,
AND SOCIALISTIC TYRANNY, AND ECONOMIC RUIN
IN THIS COUNTRY. WE NEED TO STAND
UP AND SAY, “WE HAVE HAD
ENOUGH OF THIS! LOOK WHAT ATHEISM HAS
PRODUCED IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD, WE
DON’T WANT IT HERE! WE WANT THE RELIGIOUS
FREEDOM THAT OUR FOUNDERS GAVE TO US. WE DON’T WANT THIS
SOCIALISTIC MESS OF POTTAGE THAT YOU’RE
TRYING TO FORCE ON US. WE WANT THE FREE
ENTERPRISE SYSTEM THAT THE FOUNDERS OF THIS
COUNTRY GAVE TO US, WHICH MADE AMERICA THE
STRONGEST AND THE MOST BOUNTIFUL AND PLENTIFUL
NATION THAT THE WORLD HAD EVER SEEN. AS DR. KENNEDY JUST
SHARED, SOCIALISM IS ON THE RISE- AND THE PROBLEM
IS THAT TOO MANY AMERICANS ARE HAPPY TO HOLD OUT
THEIR HANDS TO RECEIVE OTHER PEOPLE’S EARNINGS. THIS IS THE ROTTEN FRUIT
OF KARL MARX, COMBINED WITH THE SIN
NATURE OF MANKIND. IN JUST A FEW MINUTES, WE
WILL TELL YOU ABOUT AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE YOUR
VOICE HEARD ON THIS AND OTHER VITAL MATTERS. BUT MARX’S TERRIBLE
IDEOLOGY HAS FILTERED INTO OTHER AREAS OF
LIFE AS WELL. THE INFLUENCE OF MARXISM
ON OUR CULTURE EXPLAINS MANY OF THE DIVISIONS WE
SEE IN AMERICA TODAY. DR. E. CALVIN BEISNER IS
THE FOUNDER AND NATIONAL SPOKESMAN OF THE CORNWALL
ALLIANCE FOR THE STEWARDSHIP OF CREATION. HE IS WIDELY REGARDED AS
THE FOREMOST EVANGELICAL VOICE IN AMERICA ON
CLIMATE CHANGE ALARMISM, BUT HE HAS ALSO WRITTEN
EXTENSIVELY ABOUT ECONOMICS AND
BIBLICAL STEWARDSHIP. I RECENTLY HAD A CHANCE
TO SIT DOWN HERE IN OUR STUDIO AND TALK WITH
CAL ABOUT WHAT CULTURAL MARXISTS ARE AND WHAT THE
LEFT IS DOING AND IMPOSING ON OUR NATION. MANY PEOPLE SEE MARXISM AS
AN ECONOMIC SYSTEM THAT’S FAILED EVERYWHERE
IT’S BEEN TRIED NOTWITHSTANDING. TODAY WE ARE SEEING MORE
OF A CULTURAL INFLUENCE OF MARXISM AREN’T WE? DESCRIBE HOW THAT IS AND
WHAT THAT MEANS, WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS? YOU KNOW, KARL MARX HIS
THESIS WAS THAT HUMANITY IS ALWAYS IN CONFLICT OVER
DIVISIONS BASICALLY OF PROPERTY, DIVISIONS OF
WEALTH, RIGHT, BUT THIS CLASS CONFLICT HE SAW
AS ALWAYS COMING FROM INEQUALITIES OF WEALTH. NOW AS SOCIALISTS HAVE
ATTEMPTED TO ADDRESS THAT THROUGH SOCIALISM, THEY
FOUND THAT IT DIDN’T WORK BUT THEY STILL HAD THIS
BASIC IDEA THAT THERE ARE THESE CONFLICTS, THESE
CLASS CONFLICTS SO THEY STARTED IDENTIFYING THESE
CLASS CONFLICTS ALONG DIFFERENT LINES: ALONG
GENDER LINES, ALONG SKIN COLOR LINES, ALONG
ETHNICITY LINES, ALONG, NOWADAYS, SEXUAL
PREFERENCE LINES, THINGS LIKE THAT, ALL OF THOSE
BECOME NEW ARENAS OF CLASS CONFLICT. THIS IS CULTURAL MARXISM
GONE RAMPANT AND UNFORTUNATELY IT’S REALLY
MAKING A LOT OF HEADWAY IN THE CHURCHES ESPECIALLY
AMONG THE YOUNG. NOW, YOU’VE STUDIED THESE
THINGS, THE WRITINGS OF MARX AND ENGLES AND MANY
OTHERS, THEY IDENTIFIED IN THEIR WRITINGS TWO
CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS THAT THEY FELT HAD TO BE DONE
AWAY WITH OR THEIR POWER DIMINISHED IN ORDER FOR
MARXISM TO SUCCEED. EXPLAIN WHAT THAT IS AND
THE IMPLICATIONS FOR THAT. TWO AND LOTS MORE, BUT
PRIMARILY THE FAMILY AND THE CHURCH, ANYTHING THAT
STOOD BETWEEN THE CIVIL GOVERNMENT, THE STATE,
RIGHT, AND THE INDIVIDUAL. ANYTHING THAT ROMAN
CATHOLIC POLITICAL THOUGHT HAS TENDED TO CALL THEM
MEDIATING INSTITUTIONS. THE GREAT CALVINIST
THINKER ABRAHAM KUYPER CALLED THEM SPHERES WITH
THEIR OWN SOVEREIGNTIES, RIGHT. ANYTHING THAT WOULD BUFFER
THE GOVERNMENT INDIVIDUAL RELATIONSHIP AND PROTECT
THAT INDIVIDUAL FROM SOME OF THE IMMENSE POWER OF
THE CIVIL GOVERNMENT, THE MARXIST WANT
TO GET RID OF. IF THE CULTURAL MARXIST
GET THEIR WAY AND CAN DELEGITIMIZE THE CHURCH,
EMASCULATE THE FAMILY, SO TO SPEAK, REMOVING THE
INFLUENCE OF THOSE INSTITUTIONS FROM THE
CULTURE SO THAT GOVERNMENT RISES, IS THERE NO HOPE
LEFT FOR US OR DOES THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL
STILL REIGN SUPREME? HELP ME OUT HERE. IF THE SOCIAL JUSTICE
ADVOCATES, THE CULTURAL MARXISTS GET THEIR WAY,
VENEZUELA IS WHERE WE’RE HEADED, RIGHT? BUT THE FACT IS DOWN
THROUGH HISTORY, SOCIETY AFTER SOCIETY, NATION
AFTER NATION HAS GONE THROUGH CYCLES OF THIS
SORT AND MANY HAVE RECOVERED, NOT ALWAYS
VERY QUICKLY, AND THERE’S ALWAYS A LOT OF
SUFFERING INVOLVED. BUT THE FACT IS THAT JESUS
CHRIST SAID THAT THE VERY GATES OF HELL WOULD NOT
PREVAIL AGAINST HIS CHURCH, AS THE CHURCH
CONTINUES TO GROW, AND AS A FORMER PROFESSOR
OF CHURCH HISTORY I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT
THE CHURCH WENT FROM BEING 11 DISCIPLES AFTER JUDAS
HUNG HIMSELF, RIGHT, 11 DISCIPLES TO NOW OVER A
THIRD OF ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD PROFESS TO BE
CHRISTIANS, CLAIM JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR LORD. AND THE CHURCH IS STILL
GROWING WORLDWIDE FASTER TODAY THAN AT ANY
TIME IN ITS HISTORY. SO MAY WE SEE A GREAT
DECLENSION HERE AS WE’VE ALREADY SEEN IN EUROPE? YES, WE CERTAINLY MIGHT,
BUT JESUS HAS GIVEN US THE END GAME. THE END GAME IS HE WINS. HE IS THE ONE WHO IS KING
OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS AND THE KINGDOMS OF THIS
WORLD WILL BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR GOD
AND OF HIS CHRIST. THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE TO
LOOK FORWARD TO AND HE IS THE ONE WE SERVE AND WE
SERVE HIM OUT OF LOVE AND GRATITUDE FOR WHAT HE’S
DONE FOR US ON THE CROSS. OCCUPY UNTIL I COME MEANS
BE BUSY ABOUT THE WORK THAT’S BEFORE US IN THE
POWER OF GOD TRUSTING THAT HIS COMING WILL ILLUMINATE
ALL THINGS TO ALL PEOPLE. CAL, THANKS SO MUCH

NIGHTMARE FOR HUMANITY. ALONG WITH ITS MORE
VIOLENT MANIFESTATION, COMMUNISM, IT HAS BROUGHT
UNTOLD MISERY TO UNCOUNTED MILLIONS. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF
OR SEEN THIS VOLUME? IT’S A CLASSIC AND IT’S
CALLED THE BLACK BOOK OF COMMUNISM. THIS IS A HARVARD
UNIVERSITY PRESS BOOK, WHICH WAS
PUBLISHED IN 1999. IT DOCUMENTS WHAT THE
COMMUNISTS ACTUALLY DID TO THEIR OWN PEOPLE IN NATION
AFTER NATION AFTER NATION. PERHAPS THE SUBTITLE SAYS
IT BEST, “CRIMES, TERROR, REPRESSION.” AFTER THE FALL OF THE
SOVIET UNION, UNCOVERED DOCUMENTS REVEALED THAT
EVERYTHING AMERICANS FEARED ABOUT COMMUNISM WAS
TRUE- AND EVEN WORSE THAN WE IMAGINED. AS THE GREAT HISTORIAN
PAUL JOHNSON HAS WRITTEN, THE TOTALITARIAN STATES OF
THE 20TH CENTURY- THE VAST MAJORITY OF WHICH WERE
COMMUNISTS- PROVED TO BE THE GREATEST
KILLERS OF ALL TIME. YET THERE ARE THOSE AROUND
WHO WANT TO RESURRECT SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM,
THINKING IT WILL WORK IF WE JUST TRY ONE MORE TIME. BUT MORE THAN A HUNDRED
MILLION DEAD IS PLENTY OF REASON TO PUT AN END TO
THAT FOUL EXPERIMENT. COMMUNISM IS THE MOST
RABID FORM OF SOCIALISM. BUT MANY OF THE SAME
PEOPLE PUSHING FOR SOCIALISM IN AMERICA HAVE
ALSO BEEN SUPPORTERS OF THE HARDER AND MORE
VIOLENT FORM COMMUNISM. BERNIE SANDERS, WHO NEARLY
CAPTURED A MAJOR PARTY PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION AS
AN AVOWED SOCIALIST, TOOK HIS HONEYMOON WHERE IN THE
SOVIET UNION- DURING THE HEYDAY OF COMMUNISM. HOLLYWOOD’S SEAN PENN,
MICHAEL MOORE, OLIVER STONE ALL HAVE PRAISED
COMMUNIST DICTATORS LIKE VENEZUELA’S HUGO CHAVEZ. AS A FRIEND OF MINE
LIKES TO SAY: IDEAS HAVE CONSEQUENCES, AND BAD
IDEAS HAVE VICTIMS. SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM
HAVE LEFT MORE VICTIMS IN THEIR WAKE THAT ANY OTHER
MOVEMENT IN HUMAN HISTORY. INDEED, THIS WRETCHED AND
INHUMAN OFFSPRING OF MARX AND LENIN PROPERLY
BELONGS, IN THE WORDS OF RONALD REAGAN, ON THE
ASH-HEAP OF HISTORY. D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES
IS STANDING FOR TRUTH AND DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR
