Before It’s Too Late!

“The slope goes from disinformation to defamation. Once they can dismiss you as one of ‘those’ kinds of people–ether ignorant or a bigot-they begin to marginalize you… Then it goes from marginalization to discrimination, and then from discrimination to outright persecution.” Dr. Gary Cass, president of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission

In 2007, Daniel Lapin, an orthodox Jewish rabbi, published an article in which he warned American Christians “about the earliest stages of what could become a cataract of disasters if not resisted now.”

Dr. Gary Cass, president of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, describes benchmarks that already been passed that will lead to the outright persecution of Christians. He sights the passage of the ‘Hate Crimes Laws,’ as a major step towards the persecution of Christians in America.

Dr. Cass describes a progressive slope that if not countered by the Church in the United States, will soon lead to disaster for Christians.

I believe that the Church in the United Statesmust immediately begin to turn from a passive approach of our faith, to a much more militant type of understanding of our faith. For too long we have assumed that we are simply to stand by while the enemy systematically strips us of our liberties. The consequences of the fall of Christianity in the United States will mean disaster for both the U.S.and the world.

Disinformation: If you tell a lie long enough, people will begin to think it is true.

Who’s Shaping Our Culture

Sociologists conducted a survey of the top 104 Hollywoodwriters and producers.

93% seldom or never attend a church;

97% believe in a woman’s right to abort;

5% strongly agree that homosexuality is wrong;

16% agree that adultery is wrong;

99% believe that television should be “more critical” of Judeo-Christian values.

Does Media Have An Effect?

Young people take in over 18,000 hours of TV by the time they graduate from high school.

That’s over 5000 more hours than they spend in 12 years of classes.

American children spend more time watching television than they spend on any other activity excep sleeping.

The average teen in the United States spends 35 hours per week on average with media of one kind or another. (Cell phones, video gaming, music, TV, the Web etc…)

Since the 1980s we have seen an ever increasingly and unabashed hostility toward Christianity from every sphere of secular media outlets, from movies to music. Christianity is regularly ridiculed, mocked, or marginalized whenever it is portrayed by Hollywood, and the media. The following is a short list of just a few of recent anti-Christian films.

V for Vendetta

There Will be Blood

The Golden Compass

The Da Vinci Code

Angels and Demons

Marginalization: Movies, music, and slanted journalism are all used to soften up the public to outright discrimination against Christianity. These are all used to marginalize those who hold a biblical world view. The attempt is to portray Christians as stupid, archaic, bigoted, and anti-progress so that no one takes Christian seriously.

Through the clever use of propaganda social issues become closed for discussion, or debate. The main stream media simply shifts the center to the far left, and changes the rules of engagement. Consider the following as just a few of the examples of propaganda used by the media.

Evolution: While the vast majority of Americans do not believe the theory of evolution, it is the only officially sanctioned, and endorsed theory of origin legally allowed to be taught in the public schools of the U.S. Any who challenge the validity of this theory from a scientific perspective are immediately attacked, ridiculed as ignorant, and dismissed as religious zealots. (Expelled Movie by Ben Stein)

Abortion: Abortion is couched in terms intended to sway the public. Those who favor abortion are called Pro-choice, while those who oppose abortion are called Anti-abortion. The national media has for the most part closed the book on any open debate or dialogue about abortion, even though the vast majority of Americans oppose abortion.

Homosexuality: Many of the Hollywoodwriters are gay, so is it surprising that movies, sitcoms, and media is saturated with openly pro-gay themes? The argument of one being born gay is no longer part of the discussion. The media has managed to shift the debate to gay rights rather than the legitimacy of the gay origin.

Islam: One would think that after 9/11 the media would take a hard stand against Islam, but infact just the opposite has occurred. Islam is treated with preferential treatment by the media, Hollywood, and news outlets. While Christians are being expelled, and harassed in public schools and universities for nearly any express of their faith, the followers of Islam are often given preferential treatment.

Discrimination: Once Christianity is marginalized, then discrimination is the next step. It seems that every form of public expression is deemed acceptable in the public square except for Christianity.

Through the use of disinformation, the first Amendment has been turned on its head by groups like the ACLU, and Freedom From Religion Foundation. These organizations use the courts as a means to scrub the public from any form of Christian expression.

Students are expelled from Colleges for noncompliance with pro-homosexual agendas.

Communities find themselves embroiled in costly legal battles to display crosses, and Christian symbols that have stood for decades.

National monuments, and buildings are under constant threat from these groups in their attempt to remove any mention of our Christian heritage.

The Overthrow of the Biblical Worldview

Gradualism: In his book ‘The American Covenant,’ historian and author, Marshall Foster, recounts a historic meeting that took place in a loft above Pecks Restaurant, in Manhattan, NY, on September 12, 1905.

Upton Sinclair, Jack London, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, J.G. Phelps Stokes, and Charles Darrow (all prominent men) were gathered for the specific purpose of instituting the overthrow of the Christian world-view in the United States of America.

These men were all disciples and proponents of the teachings of Karl Marx, the founder of Communism. Through a method called gradualism, which they learned from the Roman general, Quintus Fabius Maximums, they would slowly infiltrate Marxist ideas onto college campuses, “by promoting an intelligent interest in socialism among college men and women.”

By the mid-1930’s their organization, called the League for Industrial Democracy had managed to establish 125 chapters, on college and university campuses, and John Dewey, the founder of progressive education, was the vice president.

Because of the efforts of this small group of men, and their strategic infiltration of our colleges and universities, we have seen the Christian world-view which founded and shaped our nation replaced by a secular philosophy which can be traced directly to the teachings of Marx.

We can clearly see that the cultural shift away from the absolutes of Christianity began to occur in the 1930s; however it wasn’t until the 1960’s that the full scope of this revolution began to take shape.

By the 1960’s, college campuses became the breeding grounds for Marxist Socialism, and open rebellion against the absolutes of biblical Christianity.

Here are just a few points taken from the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx. Do you think any of these describe what is taking place in the United States today?

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rentsof land to public purposes.

2. A heavy progressiveor graduated income tax.

3. Confiscationof the property of all emigrants and rebels. (Those who oppose the state)

4. Centralization of creditin the hands of the State, by means of a national bankwith State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

5. Centralization of the means of communicationand transportin the hands of the State.

6. Extension of factoriesand instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivationof waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

7. Equal liabilityof all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

8. Combination of agriculture with manufacturingindustries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of the population over the country.

9. Free education for all children in public schools. Combination of education with industrial production.

What Shall We Do?

Wake up the sleepers. (Romans 13:11-12 NKJV) And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. {12} The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

Toughen up! (Jeremiah 12:5 NIV) “If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?

Engage the culture with prayer & actions!
