Summary: Karl Marx said, "If I can steal their history I can steal their country." It is about time that Christians stop this theft and stand up for Christmas again!
Fought/ fight = agony. Literally – “I have agonized over a worthwhile struggle”.
At the end of Paul’s life, he declared that as for his faith, it was strong because he fought to keep it that way!
While in the Middle East, I saw the prison cell in Cesarea, which held Paul before Herod Agrippa sent him packing to Rome to die. I saw the cave system in Bethlehem where Christians hid from their persecutors. I saw Petra, the city of rock, where Jesus warns his people to escape, because of the Anti-Christ’s terror. Folks, confronting Christians because of their faith in Jesus Christ is not over – it’s still happening in 21st century!
Why did Paul have to fight to keep his faith strong? Because there were those who wanted to weaken it by watering it down with “political correctness”! Political correctness is as old as the hills!
In today’s world, there are 6 dead men who rule the world from their graves…Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, John Dewey, Fredrick Nietzsche and Roger Baldwin. They rule the world because their philosophies sear the minds and steal the memories of many in our 21st century!
Karl Marx said, "If I can steal their history I can steal their country."
James Dobson and Gary Bauer have both said that the battle for the next generation’s allegiance is “The second great civil war”.
Proverbs 23:7 “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
If you teach a child that he’s nothing more than scum on a pond, he’ll think like a scumbag! If you teach a child he’s no more valuable than dirt he walks on, than he’ll act like a dirtbag!
Of those 6 men that I said rule the world from their graves, you have probably heard of most of them -- but you might not know Roger Baldwin?
Roger Baldwin founded the ACLU in 1920. Baldwin openly sought the utter destruction of the American society. Fifteen years after the founding of the ACLU, Baldwin wrote: “I am for Socialism, disarmament and ultimately, for the abolishing of the State itself...I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.”
Earl Browder, the general secretary of the Communist Party of the United States, admitted that the ACLU served as “A transmission belt for the party”. Roger Baldwin agreed, saying, "I don’t regret being a part of the communist tactic which increased the effectiveness of a good cause."
Another co-founder of the ACLU is Crystal Eastman. She was a zealous feminist, an anti-war activist, and a great admirer of the former Soviet Union. She held the highest regard for Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. Crystal Eastman said, "We [feminists] must all be followers of Margaret Sanger."
Sanger attempted to improve the human race through “selective breeding”. Abortion was the primary means to this "improvement," Margaret Sanger actually wrote, "The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
As early as 1931, the U.S. Congress was alarmed by the ACLU’s devotion to communism. A report by the Special House Committee to Investigate Communist Activities stated, “The American Civil Liberties Union is closely affiliated with the communist movement in the United States, and fully 90 percent of its efforts are on behalf of communists who have come into conflict with the law. It claims to stand for free speech, free press and free assembly, but it is quite apparent that the main function of the ACLU is an attempt to protect the communists.”
Alan Sears’ book, "The ACLU vs. America: Exposing the Agenda to Redefine Moral Values." He states, “One of the great myths of the 20th – and now 21st century is the belief that the American Civil Liberties Union was an organization that had a noble beginning, but somehow strayed off course. That myth is untrue. The ACLU set a course to destroy America – her freedom and her values – right from the start.”
The result is that today the ACLU is a leading advocate of same-sex marriage and has expressed support for even polygamy!
George Grant, he has written 12 books ranging in topics from homelessness to moral issues. He writes in “Trial and Error: The ACLU and Its Impact on Your Family”… “Although they have fought for the free speech, expression and "rights" of pornographers, witches, abortionists, homosexuals, convicted criminals, child molesters, occultists, Communists, lesbians, Nazis, illegal aliens, AIDS patients, and Satanists, they have resolutely attempted to deny those same privileges to Christians. As a result…they have effectively reduced the place of religion in American life and have restricted religious speech in a way they would never allow other forms of speech to be restricted."
