A reader wrote to tell me that religion is hogwash and that history shows that more humans have been slaughtered in the name of religion than any other cause. Unfortunately he is absolutely correct in the second part of his statement because hundreds of millions of innocent unarmed people have been murdered in the name of religion and it continues to this day in many parts of the world. The overwhelming majority was murdered by their own government. I think the biggest one by far is yet to come, but it's pretty tough to get people interested in this topic in the States though, because after all it can't happen here right? Why would they think it is not possible here?

On what foundation were these atrocities built? Though many murderous regimes generally say they are not religious, it is not true. After all, religion is what you put your faith in and usually includes your code of ethics and philosophy of life. What these people fail to understand is that all people are religious. Everyone has his or her faith in something whether it is in yourself, money, power, another person, etc. Whatever you hold highest in your life is your god. The best description of religion that I have heard came from Doug Phillips, president of Vision Forum. He said that religion is culture externalized. Whatever you have your faith in is reflected in how you think and in all that you do. That includes the value you place on human life.

There are really only two religions. One worships the Living God where human life, next to God, is central to their faith. The second is Humanism, where the creation is worshiped instead of the Creator. It was formed out of rebellion from God back in the Garden of Eden. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:5 Hoping to be like God caused the fall of man in the Garden of Eden and the rebellion goes on.

Marxism, a form of Humanism, has governed much of the world and still does today. We are generally told that Marxists are atheists, but let's take a look at one of the authors of the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx, for whom the term Marxism is coined. Marx is considered the chief founder of two of the most powerful mass movements in history, democratic socialism, and revolutionary communism and therefore has greatly developed socialist thought. I think we can get a feel for his religion by looking at this paragraph taken from a poem he wrote while a young man.

Then I will be able to walk triumphantly, Like a god, through the ruins of their kingdom Every word of mine is fire and action My breast is equal to that of the Creator

Karl Marx put himself equal to God and talks of ruining His creation. It is plain to see that he was not an atheist, but a believer who was in rebellion against God. According to Richard Wurmbrand (see his bio at in his book, Marx and Satan, there were numerous poems and dramas written by Marx where we can see this same theme. In another poem he says "I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above." Doesn't that sound like Satan? In fact, in his book Pastor Wurmbrand makes a very good case for Marx having had ties to the Satanist church.

Now that we understand a little more about Marx and his plans of ruining God's creation, let's take a look at a few of the leaders that have followed the anti-Christian, socialist/communist religion of Marx as outlined by R. J. Rummel in Death by Government. Josef Stalin, Soviet Union, murdered 42.7million; Mao Tse-tung, China 37.8 million; Adolf Hitler, 20.9 million; Chiang Kai-shek, China, 10.2 million; Vladimir Lenin 4 million; and many other anti- Christian leaders could be listed. These poor victims were shot, starved, tortured, worked to death, etc. Life, being almost the very center of the Christian religion, would naturally be the point of attack for those bent on destroying God's creation.

The Salem Witch Trials, The Crusades, and the Inquisition are brought up by people to prove their point that Christians are no different than those of other religions. To those that know the Scriptures there is no biblical basis for these occurrences. In the horrible atrocity of the Witch Trials, appropriately called The Hysteria, some innocent people were put to death against biblical principles; they did not have the lawful number of witnesses. In The Crusades some went for religious reasons, believing that they could draw nearer to God's presence by visiting the holy places. But II Corinthians 5:7 says, "We walk by faith, not by sight." Since the Bible was not printed in the vernacular of the time, the common man would not have known. Many went for adventure and other reasons of their own. As far as the Inquisition goes, there is certainly nothing biblical about torturing or murdering those that disagree with your views. The Holy Bible is a perfect book, but men are not perfect; even when they become Christians. God cannot be blamed for their failings.

Even if we took the numbers killed by "Christians", the amount would pale by those recorded by the bloody Humanists above. The biggest numbers I could find by anything that could even be remotely called "Christian" was between 10 and 20 million killed in the last one thousand years and those days are long gone. According to Rummel, the tally of murders committed by anti-Christian governments totaled around 169 million in the 20th century alone, and I have seen estimates as high as 360 million murdered in that bloody century. And murder in the name of Marxism continues around the world today in China, Cuba, Africa, South America and elsewhere.

For those who somehow think that America is special and that those atrocities could never happen here, you better think again. The religious foundation that made the cold-blooded murders not only possible, but necessary in the mind of those governments, has been almost completed here. America has now embraced much of the Satanic ideology of Karl Marx in the form of democratic socialism. How did it happen? How did we change from a Constitutional Republic where the people had liberty that was the envy of the world to the socialism of Karl Marx, which has brought the greatest human suffering? (And with the murder of 42 million pre-born babies in the U.S., the democide has begun.)

A very wealthy group of people is funding a world system of socialism that is to come about through the anti-God, anti-American United Nations. How do I know they are anti-God? You don't have to go too far to figure that one out. There is a New Age chapel at the UN that was designed by previous Secretary- General Dag Hammarskjold and it is maintained by the Lucis Trust. (Formerly known as the Lucifer Trust) Gee, I wonder why they changed the name? According to a New American Magazine article called "New Age Roots" (3/1/99), the Lucis Trust claims as one of its purposes the advancement of interest in occult and arcane religion. It also stated that it runs a number of non-profit "arcane schools" designed to teach various occult doctrines and practices. Is it any wonder that the United Nations has been a major vehicle for spreading the occultic New Age religion in our schools?

The best way to change a country is to brainwash the children into "the plan". Part of our children's religious training in government schools is to look, not to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, but to the United Nations as the world's savior. And don't let anyone kid you. The UN is not just a political organization, but a religious one that is bent on re-educating our children away from the true God of the Bible, who provides the only spiritual framework for an ethic of individuality, God-given rights, and political liberty. Why would the United Nations want to get rid of God except to deprive us of those things?

It appears that people high up in our own government have been bought out as well. Otherwise, why would they keep heading us deeper down the socialist road, sign international treaties that hand our sovereignty over to the UN, while at the same time draining the pockets of the American people with the many billions of dollars sent to that organization? There was a plan set in motion over 40 years ago by our State Department to disarm the American people. Obviously, when the time comes to take our rights by force, they don't want themselves to get hurt. It's more than interesting that all the great genocides of history have happened after the people have been disarmed.

State Department Publication 7277 dated September 1961 states in part, "The overall goal of the United States is a free, secure, and peaceful world of independent states adhering to common standards of justice and international conduct and subjecting the use of force to the rule of law; a world which has achieved general and complete disarmament under effective international control; and a world in which adjustment to change takes place in accordance with the principles of the United Nations". Not only does our own government want us disarmed, they want us given over to the Satanic principles of the United Nations.

I would imagine that the reader who wrote to me thinks that a world without religion would be in the best interest of mankind, but as you can see, there is no such thing. All men are religious; it is just a matter of what their religion is as to whether mankind will benefit or not. If America doesn't wake up to what is happening to our country, it will spell disaster and untold suffering for the entire world. The bloody twentieth century will be mild in comparison to what our masters have planned for those who don't want to go along with an occultic totalitarian world dictatorship.
