False Dilemma: Superstition or Education

False Narrative: Faith (Superstition)
Or Scientific Knowledge (Education)

On of the ignored false dilemmas of the 19th century was the deliberate pitting of faith, characterized as superstition, against scientific knowledge that was being developed and taught in public schools as fact.  This false dilemma continues today under many flags but its major characteristic is its reliance on the ignorance of its adherents.

Jerusalem: Capital of Israel?

Jerusalem Under the Shadow of Zionism, Judaism,
Islam and Christianity; But Christ?

President Trump’s declaration that America would recognize Jerusalem as the legitimate capital of Israel was like tossing a branch into a hornet’s nest! Everyone had a reaction. Not surprising, Islamic adherents were vehement in their opposition, not so much because of the Mosque of Omar at the Temple Mount site, but because of their racial hatred of all Jews as enshrined in their holy books. The Jewish response was also not surprising since they have been seeking support from any powerful nation to help them realize this dream that was born with the United Nations declaration that gave birth to the modern nation of Israel. Yet, it was the reaction of Christians that should give one pause to ask if they even understand the very Scriptures they claim to use to guide them in their understanding of God and His plans?

War to Begin All Wars-WWI and Beyond

American and German Enlistment Posters
Posit the same Demand-Die for the Government

World War One (WWI) did not begin as an American war but as a European war; however, America entered the war to advance its Progressive agenda at the cost of tens of thousands of lives of its soldiers. Continue reading “War to Begin All Wars-WWI and Beyond”

Father of Christmas Past, Present and Future

Popular Cartoon of Santa Claus by
Thomas Nash 1881 in America

Nothing is more enduring in America today than the gnostic mythos of Santa Claus and the supposed holiday {holy day} of Christmas. I could opine about the gnostic values of Christmas being antithetical to biblical Christian truths but no one, saved or lost, cares as long as they can wax nostalgic on this holiday {Merry Gnostic Christmas}. Facts concerning this pagan celebration are lost on even the most pietist believing Christian who worships the power of the state to bring about God’s kingdom on earth. This is probably the basis for Christians and non-Christians uniting around this mystic figure. Continue reading “Father of Christmas Past, Present and Future”

Postmillennialism Becomes Progressive Socialism

Everything listed in this graphic is wrong
Progressive Era about increasing Statism

In my recent posts (Why Eschatology Matters; Faith Affects Government, Always; and Nostalgia for Charles Finney’s Godly America) I have tried to inform the reader about America’s true past that centers on the Progressive Era (1890-1920). The Progressive Era grew out of Protestant Postmillennialism and into politics to create a better society to present to Christ so He will return and establish His Kingdom on earth {in essence}. The America you see today is a result of the Progressive Era whose effects never receded. Continue reading “Postmillennialism Becomes Progressive Socialism”

Nostalgia for Charles Finney’s Godly America

This man nearly single-handedly made
America a godly nation: But which god?

Many in American Christendom have this yearning to return America to its godly roots, away from its current anti-God philosophical societal self-destruction. However, I have heard no one describe this godly America they so nostalgically yearn to reimplement. Charles Finney, the Great Revivalist epitomizes the Christian philosophy that moved America during the 19th century and his influence remains today in many churches. However, a study of his doctrine reveals his beliefs to be anything but godly. Continue reading “Nostalgia for Charles Finney’s Godly America”

Shaping the Mind by Educational Ignorance

Why the American People Don’t Know
Reveals the Purpose of Our Education

The reason for writing this post is to understand why people do not know what they do not know. I believed the purpose of education was to educate but my studies have revealed that the purpose of education is to make compliant citizens for whomever is in control. Unfortunately, Christians have also been complicit in this process to our shame.

Faith Affects Government, Always

What You Were Never Supposed to Learn
How Evangelicalism Ruined America

One of the most important factoids I learned from reading Murray Rothbard’s book, The Progressive Era (Mises Institute. 2017.), was the impact of faith on government. In short, the joining of morality and government power to create a godly society is the history of America. In a nutshell, this is postmillennialism put into practice, this is America today gone wrong. Continue reading “Faith Affects Government, Always”

Why Eschatology Matters

Postmillennialism Believes Christians
Will Make a Better World for People

Postmillennialism is the belief that Christians through the Church will bring mankind into a moral utopia that grows better and better until Christ returns to reward those who live so morally. This eschatological (end times) view suffered serious setbacks at the beginning of the 20th century due to the death and devastation of both World Wars and the world-wide effects of the Great Depression. Many Christians and non-Christians believe that one’s eschatological beliefs are of little consequence in everyday life; however, the Progressive Movement and today’s globalization movement are a direct result of Postmillennialism’s pervasive influence.

Marxism is Democracy

Marx’s communism failed because
He conflated feudalism with modernism

To understand Marx’s philosophy, Marxism, we need to understand his worldview. A passive reader takes his {her} worldview with them when they view, read or even think about the past. Their worldview informs the context of events in terms of their current understanding. I believe Marx was also a victim of his worldview without his realization. Thus, the formation of his philosophy was a rejection of feudalism and the implementation of pure democracy. Continue reading “Marxism is Democracy”
