75 | Is there a demonic root to communism?

While most communist regimes are considered officially atheistic, in this podcast I ask the odd question, Is there a demonic root to communism?

The communist agenda behind Extinction Rebellion?

Extinction Rebellion (XR) is a radical environmental group that has been causing a major disruption of traffic in Britain over that past couple weeks as it demands the country take more radical steps to stop global warming. But a recent rally at London’s Trafalgar Square exposed the radical political agenda that is behind XR and as well many environmental groups.

Leak reveals Communist China’s infiltration of Britain

A disturbing leak of the names of 1.95 million registered members of the Chinese Communist Party revealed that many of them hold key positions in Britain. This includes the British government, universities and major businesses involving such fields as banking, the defence industry and pharmaceuticals. Apparently someone with access to the server containing the party memberships risked their lives by deliberately downloading the names onto the social media app — Telegram. It showed the world how far the Chinese Communist Party’s tentacles have spread. I would love to see the list for the U.S. and Canada. The Daily Mail explains: Loyal members of the Chinese Communist Party are working in British consulates, universities and for some of the UK’s leading companies, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. An extraordinary leaked database of 1.95 million registered party members reveals how Beijing’s malign influence now stretches into almost every corner of British life, including defence firms, banks and pharmaceutical giants. Most alarmingly, some of its members – who swear a solemn oath to ‘guard Party secrets, be …

While more North Koreans report seeing a Bible, problems in South Korea

Despite the extreme persecution of Christians in North Korea, more people in the Hermit Kingdom are reporting they have seen a Bible. Each year, the North Korean Human Rights Center (KNHR) publishes a report on religious persecution in that communist regime considered to be the worst in the world. NKHR gathers its information by interviewing people who have managed to defect from North Korea. In a recent White Paper, the organization reported that the number of people who reported seeing a Bible in North Korea has steadily risen by 4% annually over the past 20 years. Prior to 2000, the organization said only 16 defectors had reported seeing Scripture while in that communist country. However, that number has grown to 559 since that time. This is all the more remarkable considering it is illegal to own a Bible and being found with one will result in a person being sent to one of the country’s infamous prison camps, from which they never return. The persecution of Christians in North Korea significantly increased in 2014, when …

Pope Francis pushes communism & one world government?

A couple of stories on Pope Francis reveals some concerns about the leader of the Roman Catholic Church which as of 2018 had 1.3 baptized adherents. Both articles focussed on a teaching entitled the new encyclical, ‘Fratelli Tutti’ (Brothers All) that the Pope gave on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020. In the first article reported in the Daily Mail, the leader of the world’s Catholic seems to be indirectly pushing communism as the answer to the world’s woes. The Daily Mail explains: Pope Francis says the coronavirus pandemic has proven that the ‘magic theories’ of market capitalism have failed and that the world needs a new type of politics that promotes dialogue and solidarity. […] He rejected the concept of an absolute right to property for individuals, stressing instead the ‘social purpose’ and common good that must come from sharing the Earth’s resources. READ: Pope says coronavirus pandemic has proven that ‘magic theories’ of market capitalism have failed and world needs a new type of politics Since the Pope is considered the spiritual leader of Catholics, …

BLM founders: More ties to communism?

A video surfaced earlier this year of one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization, Patrisse Cullors, claiming she was a Marxist. The Daily Caller explained what happened recently with Alicia Garza, another of BLM’s co-founders: Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza’s new organization, Black Futures Lab, is fiscally sponsored by the Chinese Progressive Association, which organized the raising of communist China’s flag over Boston City Hall last year. The “donate” button on Black Futures Lab’s website takes users to a donation page hosted by the CPA, which notes that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.” The partnership between the two groups was first reported by the Daily Signal on Tuesday. The CPA last year sponsored the raising of the Chinese flag over Boston City Hall to mark the 70th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party creating the People’s Republic of China. The event sparked a protest from demonstrators opposed to the Chinese government’s actions in Hong Kong, 7News Boston reported at the time.

A 5-minute video on China’s downward spiral

China’s recent dark turn can be blamed on its current despot for life Xi Jinping, who is turning the country back to the dark days of communism. And oh yeah, below is a video on the term “useful idiots,” referred to in the video above. Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the former communist Soviet Union, came up with the term to describe people who paved the way for the introduction of communism into a nation. We see them at work in the West today. Allen West explains:

VIDEOS: Who are communism’s ‘useful idiots’?

Below are a three videos that may help explains the recent activities of the radical left in America. In the first video, former Lieutenant Colonel Allen West explains the term ‘useful idiots’, that was coined by Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the Soviet Union, to describe those who paved the way for the introduction of communism into a nation. In the second video, G. Edward Griffin, discusses the book Color, Communism and Commons Sense, that was written by a Black man, Manning Johnson, who left the communist movement in the early 1920s, when he realized the Marxists wanted to use the racial problems in the US to destroy America. And of course, I would be completely remiss, if I didn’t include a video of one the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement who says she is a trained Marxist:

Marxist BLM activists shout ‘abolish capitalism now’?

More evidence is surfacing that some Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests are more about politics than black lives. At a protest in Beverly Hills, California, BLM activists were not shouting Black Lives Matter, they were shouting “Abolish Capitalism Now”. Andy Ngo has the video: Black Lives Matter protesters in Beverley Hills, Cal. chant: “Abolish capitalism, now!”  pic.twitter.com/RgEdMfmyA1 — Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) June 27, 2020 READ: Black Lives Matter Activists Want To ‘Abolish Capitalism.’ Vendors Selling BLM Merch Just Got Shut Down In Black Lives Matter Plaza.

Is it time to hold China’s Communist regime to account?

There are a number of serious allegations being made against China particularly that it initially suppressed the seriousness of the pandemic in order to scoop up medical supplies from the rest of the world. Then knowing full well that the pandemic was spreading in Wuhan, the communist regime allegedly allowed citizens of that city to travel around the world. Perhaps the one allegation that clearly reveals the corrupt nature of China’s Communist regime is during the early stages of the COVID-19 breakout in Wuhan, Italy donated medical equipment to the China, which it didn’t fully use. Then when the virus took a hold in Italy, the Italians asked if they could have the unused equipment back. China refused, forcing the Italians to buy back the equipment they had donated to China. READ: China ‘forces Italy to BUY back masks and coronavirus supplies it had DONATED to Beijing just weeks earlier’ But there is good news, several groups are beginning to launch lawsuits against the Communist regime.

Is Religion Evil?

Is all religion evil? Some people think so. Recently, a large number of devout Muslims met in a wedding hall in Kabul Afghanistan to celebrate the birthday of their Prophet Muhammad. As they were celebrating their holy day, a suicide bomber detonated explosives among them, killing at least fifty and injuring many more. RELATED: Suicide bombing at Kabul religious gathering kills dozens I am not a Muslim, but I sympathize with the victims; they were innocently commemorating something that is sacred to them. The killer was a fellow Muslim, but many extreme Muslim terrorists have condemned the bombing. Some really dangerous people are appalled by what happened. They would never take it that far. Stories like this just boost the argument that religion is an evil force in the world and it should be removed. One famous quote, apparently by Karl Marx is “Religion is the opiate of the peoples” but that might have been a common proverb in his time. My impression of anyone who wants us to quit something, is that they want …

Antichrist Marxism rearing its head in Nicaragua?

Things have taken a dark turn for Christians in Nicaragua being ruled by its Marxist president and former guerilla Daniel Ortega. Though a democracy, Ortega has recently declared Christians “enemies of the state.” With a population of six million people, Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America. About half the population is Catholic and another third consider themselves evangelical. There have been growing public protests against Ortega’s regime because of its rampant corruption, growing totalitarianism and gross mismanagement of the economy. The anti-government protestors are calling for Ortega to step down and call an early election. Ortega has taken to violence to oppose the protests and even set up a secret police force who wear masks or hoods to attack those opposing the regime.. Because of the growing crack down on the anti-government protests, the UN sent a commission to Nicaragua to monitor the situation. After the UN issued a report condemning Ortega for his violence, the president ordered the UN out of the country on September 1. Since April this year, about 300 …

Jesus Meets “The Great Firewall of China”

Very recently, the government of China has restricted the sale of Christian Bibles online, to its own citizens. The Communist government of China wants to control rapidly growing religions, including Christianity and Islam, although the Islamic Koran is still available online. Religion was supposed to die in China, after the Communists came to power in 1949, but recently there are signs that Chinese people are becoming more religious, and the major religions are surging in popularity. Also, China is becoming a world leader in online marketing, or e-commerce. The growth in online sales is also surging in China, and this is a very recent trend. RELATED: China’s e-commerce explosion. What can we learn? In this mix, Bible sales have suddenly been restricted. RELATED: China bans Bible sales: New York Times Bibles are still available from church book stores, but not online. Strangely, China produces millions of Bibles for export, in many languages, including Chinese. There are no restrictions on this business. So, what does the restriction of Bible sales mean for Christians? Probably not much. …

The struggle for religious freedom in Cuba

Though still a communist nation, in 1992, the Cuba government reclassified itself as a secular nation under its constitution instead of an atheistic one. At the same time, it also partially lifted restrictions on religion and since then Christianity has seen remarkable growth in that country. The country’s current ruler, Raul Castro, the brother of Fidel who died in November 2016, actually attended a Jesuit school before the 1959 Communist revolution. He has been in charge in Cuba since 2011. Under his rule, the Catholic church has retained some favor with the government and in 2014, Cuba allowed a Catholic church in Santiago to construct a new building. It was the first church built in Cuba since the 1959 Communist revolution. The government has also declared Christmas and Good Friday as national holidays. In 2015, President Raul met with Pope Francis and after his meeting commented that he was seriously thinking of going back to church. When reporters laughed, Raul stated, “I’m serious.” But there still remains a tension between the government and Christians. In …

The 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik revolution and the birthing of the first Communist state

I remember as a university student walking the halls crowded with tables of various communist groups peddling their wares. We had the Leninists, Maoists, Marxists and Stalinists. Each with their table full of booklets, leaflets and books promoting their particular brand of the ‘glorious’ revolution. Of course, communism in its various forms was birthed in the heart of German Karl Marx (1818–1883) who along with Friedrich Engels wrote The Communist Manifesto that became the staple for modern communism. November 7, 2017, marked the 100th anniversary of Russia’s Bolshevik Revolution that paved the way for the world’s first communist state. It was the first of many countries that would eventually fall to this evil philosophy. Ironically, the communist revolution that claimed to be the savior of the people resulted in the slaughter of over 100 million people world-wide. This was the estimate presented in book published by Harvard University Press, The Black Book of Communism. Published in 1997, its numbers are a bit outdated. The Black Book records there were 20 million killed during Stalin’s bloody …

Was Karl Marx and the rise of communism influenced by Satan?

In his book, Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand (1909-2001) looked at the writings of Karl Marx (1818-1883), the founder of communism. Unknown to many, Karl Marx started out as a Christian. Wurmbrand notes those Christian inclinations in some of Marx’s earliest writings such as The Union of the Faithful with Christ where the father of Communism wrote: “Through love of Christ we turn our hearts at the same time toward our brethren who are inwardly bound to us and for whom he gave himself in sacrifice.” Those words are in stark contrast to what Marx would later write as he developed his communistic manifesto, he told the world: “The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed.” Though we are uncertain when it happened and why it happened, at some point Karl Marx abandoned his Christian faith.
