In his 1952 book “Witness,” former communist writer turned American patriot Whittaker Chambers writes:
[Communism] is, in fact, man’s second oldest faith. Its promise was whispered in the first days of Creation under the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil: ‘Ye shall be as gods.’” Chambers called communism “the great alternative faith of mankind…the vision of Man without God.”
Hence in today’s world – this ‘progressive’ world – men can be women and women… men. And abortions – the taking of human life – can Constitutionally occur in the ninth month of pregnancy.
But Christianity and progressivism are incompatible, in fact, they are irreconcilable, as the first chapter of Genesis details:
“God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
How many progressives consider themselves subscribers of Christianity while simultaneously subscribers of gender ideology and abortion?
In Matthew 6:24, Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both…”
Karl Marx was enthralled with the writings of his contemporary, Ludwig Feuerbach, who wrote:
“The turning point in history will be the moment man becomes aware that the only God of man is man himself.”
When Marx was asked what his objective in life was, he said, “To dethrone God and destroy capitalism.”
Does all of this sound eerily familiar?
