WHY THE TEN COMMANDMENTS MUST GO!
Before the politburo in 1987, avowed Communist, Mikhail Gorbachev, stated, "In October 1917 we parted with the old world rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, the world of communism. We shall never turn off that road."
Gorbachev was right. The entire world has been moving toward communism for decades. Many people in the United States would be surprised to find that they are thinking the way the Communists want them to think. While the word "Communist" has become "outdated" because of its negative connotations, communism is very much alive and well and thriving in America. Don't be misled by whatever disguised name they use (e.g. socialism, environmentalism, globalism, internationalism). The same collectivist philosophy is behind them all. The goals are the same; the only difference is how to reach those goals. Countless loyal Americans are working toward communist objectives because their thinking has been subverted through the psychological warfare being waged across America in government schools, the mass media, many churches, the workplace, government agencies, etc.
Instead of teaching the Americanist principles of our founding fathers that were based on the eternal unchanging truths of a Creator, our nation's higher institutions have been subverted to the communistic thinking and teachings of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin. When the communists took over education, they outlawed God and the teaching of the Ten Commandments - the very basis of our moral and legal codes in America! We now have their amoral system that has caused a tremendous breakdown in our legal system and in our cultural standards of morality. Right and wrong are done away with in a socialist system because raping, stealing, lying, and murdering are all in a day's work when bringing about the "ideal" society. To complete the U.S. subversion to communism, the Ten Commandments must be done away with in every area of America life!
The First Commandment tells men to recognize God as the Creator and Great Architect of the Universe. We are created beings and this marvelous environment in which we live was created for our enjoyment. It was not an accident of nature but a careful design built on a system of law and order.
Everything was made for God's purpose. This is intolerable to the Communist. The first major premise of communism is that "everything in existence came about as a result of ceaseless motion among the forces of nature." All life, including man, is an accident of nature. There is no God, therefore there is no design and no law. By chance since man received the most intelligence, then he is god! Karl Marx, author of the "Communist Manifesto" stated "The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed." This is why our Marxist government schools threw out God and teach evolution as fact.
The Second Commandment tells us not to worship false gods, but the Communists follow the ancient pagan practice of worshipping one another. Their god is he who holds the most power.
We are not to misuse the Lord's name says the Third Commandment. While many people think this is about using the Lord's name profanely, it goes much deeper than that. In a courtroom or before a Congressional committee when someone says "I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God," this Third Commandment holds him accountable. God will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses His name. Honoring every oath in the name of God was a great source of strength to our once great system of free government. If people just took their oaths as seriously as they once did we would have far more justice in this country. But to a Communist the goal is not justice, it is pragmatism. Whether his tactics are "legal" or "moral" do not concern him as long as he gets effective results. Communists don't like penalties for "perjury". After all, their lying is for a greater cause. Our schools teach that "everyone must find his own truth".
The Fourth Commandment tells us to do our work in six days. The seventh day is to be set aside for the Lord. We should be going to church, studying the word of God, visiting the sick, etc. In order to remain culturally healthy, God knew that His people needed this day to refresh themselves or they would become ignorant. The American social order was built around keeping the Sabbath. The Marxists know how important the Sabbath is, too. One of the first things they do when they come to power is to abolish the observance of it. How many Christians think Sunday is family entertainment day?
The Fifth Commandment protects the sanctity of the family. God gave the state no power over it. The family was the ultimate hands-off private property, but Communists don't like "Honor thy Father and thy Mother" because children belong to the state. The "Communist Manifesto" calls for "abolition of the family". A decree issued in the Soviet of Saralof in 1919 stated that no woman could any longer be considered private property. All women were property of the nation. Another amoral Soviet document stated, "There is no such thing as a woman being violated by a man; he who says that a violation is wrong denies the October Communist Revolution. To defend a violated woman is to reveal oneself as a bourgeois and a partisan of private property." Is this that "new world" Gorbachev said we're heading toward? Is this the road he said we were never going to turn off?
The Sixth Commandment is against murder. The sanctity of human life is essential to the Christian. Christians don't make good Communists because a Communist must kill on command and believe that concentration camps and genocide are good when they are for a "just" cause. "Thou shalt not kill" means that bodies are private property and socialists hate private property. People belong to the state. The state may do whatever it wishes with them.
"Thou shalt not commit adultery" is the Seventh Commandment. For a strong, healthy family, trust between mother and father is vital. They must be devoted to one another and exercise personal discipline. This commandment is contrary to the goal of abolishing the family.
The Eighth Commandment says, "Thou shalt not steal". Communists find this commandment dangerous as you might accuse them of stealing. Obviously they don't steal. They have a RIGHT to all that you have.
The Ninth Commandment says, "Thou shalt not bear false witness." Since he with the most power is god, the favorite Communist trick of character assassination is necessary to get yourself to the top.
Last of all is the Tenth Commandment. We are not to covet what is our neighbor's. We must gain our own wealth by working for what we desire - not by cheating our neighbor out of what belongs to him. Desiring good things is not a sin if we work for them. This commandment really frightens the Socialists because this is what they are really all about. Socialism is not about helping the common man. It is about coveting the property of others. It is a system where a privileged few dispense the necessities of life to the serfs who work for them. Socialism transfers property to the government, not to workers. It reduces the private wealth of those who worked for it. A commandment against covetousness does not fit into a socialist society.
Those like Gorbachev who are working for a communistic world where ALL human activity will be regulated have found a replacement for the Ten Commandments. According to Gorbachev, the pagan "Earth Charter" will be "a kind of Ten Commandments, a Sermon on the Mount" that will guide human behavior into the next century and beyond. It is already being adopted in government schools, government offices, etc. around the country.
A war is being waged between freedom and slavery. Unfortunately the freedom side is losing because most of the would-be freedom fighters are sitting on the sidelines. They are so confused over the "separation of church and state" that they don't know what to do. Can't people understand that throwing out the Ten Commandments is a major part of overthrowing our system of free government?
Then there are those passives that say fighting our enemies is unbiblical. I realize that Jesus told us to love our enemies, but he never told us to surrender to them! While Jesus told us to "turn the other cheek" to avoid unnecessary quarreling, this same Jesus said to take a sword to preserve life. (Luke 22:36)
What can we do? We must start study groups in our neighborhoods and churches. Studying Judaism, Christianity and Communism is imperative. While many churches study other religions that they say are a threat to our way of life, why not Communism? Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was in a Communist prison for 14 years, urged Christians not to be duped into believing that Marxism was a mere political or economic theory. It is a religion based on Satanism! Many unsuspecting Christians are helping the communist agenda along because they don't understand what it is. The "Christian" Socialists are too numerous to count. What kind of message is the church sending when so many people think Jesus was a Socialist/Communist?
Watch out for churches and individuals that use a "Social Christianity" to cover up the fact that they are not Christians at all. They are teaching the principles of peace, brotherhood, tolerance and Christian charity to obscure the conspiratorial aspects of Communist "peace". We are a nation of dumbed-down Christians. We need more discernment, but the only way that will happen is if we familiarize ourselves with Scripture. Then compare it to communism to see that they have NOTHING in common!
Whether or not we win this earthly battle for America and the Ten Commandments, knowing Scripture is imperative. It is the only place where we will find the knowledge and the strength to win this battle. It is also the only place to find the courage and comfort we will need if we lose. If the Socialists win, the persecution and martyrdom that Christians have endured throughout the ages will make their way West.
