original article: The government’s war on Christianity
May 4, 2015 by Bob Livingston
The number one goal of all governments is to control and dominate their own citizens. The more deceptively it can be done, the more complete and long-lasting the tyranny.
I have been telling you for many years that the face of modern tyranny is benevolent totalitarianism. Police state totalitarianism went out with World War II. The “Gestapo” knock at the door in the middle of the night and barbed-wire detainment camps are history, though there are steps in place to recreate them here via FEMA resettlement camps. Benevolent totalitarianism is an advanced stage of people control through mind control and mass psycho-political manipulation.
The individual (individualist) is an enemy of the state. Therefore individuality must be removed. So the individual and the nuclear family, which is an individual and sovereign unit, are under attack.
Stop here, dear reader, if you are offended by the politically incorrect. This column will surely distress your sensibilities. If you read on you are in for some uncomfortable but Godly truths.
Government is attacking the individual and family unit in a myriad of ways: through social programs, class warfare and altruism, which is selfless self-denial to the point of literal self-sacrifice for a myth called society, and propaganda.
Social welfare programs are destructive to the individual and the family unit because they absolve the parents of their parental responsibilities and promote dependency on government. There are now “families” that for two or three generations have been wards of the state. Many if not most of them are without a male head of household. They depend upon the state to provide their sustenance, their housing, their transportation, their healthcare and their entertainment. They know nothing of individuality or personal responsibility. Their provider is the state, and the state is their god. It is 21st Century Baal worship.
Class warfare is a code word for race warfare and it promotes racism and bigotry. Government panders to minorities with extravagant subsidies and racism. Minorities respond because they are conditioned to do so. Subsidies and racism are subtle forms of economic warfare between the middle class and minorities. All is a masquerade for the benefit of a wicked political system.
Who are minorities? They are, of course, racial minorities, but there are a whole lot more. There are homosexual minorities, feminist minorities, political minorities, religious minorities, low wage minorities and all the minorities whose issues dominate the news cycles. For more on this read, “Lawyers and minorities love socialism.”
Public policy is molded on these manipulated minority influences, all contributing to the power and collectivism of government. This is all an invisible charade, an organism, with a totally different and opposite orientation to individual liberty and Christianity. It is in reality New Age slavery, a benevolent totalitarianism, an illusion of freedom.
One can always identify minority special interests simply because they welcome government intervention and intrusion (socialism) as a net for perceived social inequality, poverty and underachievement. Guilt manipulation and all manner of charades are used to force social and economic equality where none is earned.
Because of perceived social, cultural, racial and psychic inferiority, minorities desire to parasite on government force and socialism to subvert those they envy and wish to imitate.
They could never succeed except for the very sophisticated propaganda of altruism.
Altruism is the very foundation of statist propaganda that the individual must place his interests, including his property, beneath the “need” of the collective (state). It is a deceptive ploy by government to play upon Christian values of service and servitude as taught by Jesus Christ. But it is not service to benefit others — as Christ taught — that the state seeks, but service and sacrifice to the state. In our time this is called “in the public interest” or “common good.” The terms “public interest” and “common good” always translate to “in the government interest.”
Therefore, the army of federal judges and politicians act in the “public interest.” And they would tell you in a minute that they do everything in the “public interest.” This is a deception that few unravel mainly because of the self-deception of altruism. As long as an individual believes that he should share his property and produce for the “common good,” he is in reality no longer an individual but a part of the collective servants of the state. Altruism motivates people to self-sacrifice for the state. This is why altruism is at the root of all governments. Governments must instill self-sacrifice to solidify political power.
The goal of government is to coerce the people into a regimented, docile and obedient mass under a propaganda system based on altruism and self sacrifice. That is why the individual and the family unit must be undermined.
The individual will act in his own interest and is therefore a danger to the state. In a traditional family unit headed by a man – as established by God in Genesis 1 and reaffirmed by Christ in Matthew 19 and the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 7 and Colossians 3 — the individualist man will always act in the best interest of self and family.
The crowd, on the other hand, is easy to persuade and manipulate through the mass media. Note that few if any television families today or in the last 40 years are traditional families. This is by design. In fact, traditional families are anathema to Hollywood and the male head of household, if there is one, is almost always portrayed as drunk, a louse, an adulterer, an abuser or a buffoon — or some combination of those traits — who is disrespected by his wife and children. This serves to diminish the role and necessity of the father and the traditional family unit. (This is not to vilipend the importance of the work by single parents in families torn apart by death or divorce, but to point out that the ideal family in God’s plan is for there to be a husband, wife and children.)
All public schools are government training grounds for group dynamics. Everything is taught in terms of groups over individualism and even family. Children are force-fed altruism, feelings-based character traits (where self-esteem is elevated over achievement), alternative lifestyles and even non-Christian religious or pagan dogma. But Christian-based values are banned from the classroom and the discussion.
So how is all this an attack on Christianity? The way to destroy a religion is to dilute it. Enough water in the milk and the milk becomes water. The way to conquer a religion is to absorb it. The way to one-world religion is to unite all religions. This is what secret cults do rather than open confrontation.
Christianity still has its name, its churches and its forum but not its spirit. Hillary Clinton recently said “deep-seated … religious beliefs” have to be changed before the world’s women will get full access to abortion. Fifty-three million souls lost to abortion since Roe v. Wadeare not enough for her or the arbotionistas.
But Christians cannot change these “deep-seated … religious beliefs” because if they do so they are no longer Christian. (1 John 2)
The homosexual lobby tells Christians they must violate their beliefs and God’s commands and participate in their immorality. The homosexual lobby preaches tolerance but will not tolerate other beliefs. They are homo-intolerant.
The regime’s Solicitor General conceded to Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito that if homosexual marriage is legalized by the Supreme Court that churches that do not accept homosexual marriage in their doctrines would lose their tax-exempt status. This would be an all-out, full frontal assault on the Christian faith. And it would get ugly quickly, because Christians cannot accept homosexual marriage in their midst because to do so is to violate God’s command in Ephesians 5:3, and engage in works of the flesh. In fact, some avowed Christians are now promising resistance to this heresy.
Some “Christians,” I call them nominal Christians, have come to accept anything that doesn’t interfere with their six pack and wide-screen TV. So they sit back as the messianic state, also known as the nanny state, legislates away our freedoms one by one, promising security in return and even deliverance from every modern problem. Herein the religious basis of the modern religio-political system is revealed. One cannot understand politics today (which is to say, the system) until one understands the history and manifestation of false religion among sinful men.
All sin is established and brought forth from a seemingly tiny kernel of false belief about the nature and purpose of man. This humanistic kernel is planted in the vacuum of men’s hearts and spirits when they kick God out of their lives. As the Bible tells us, true belief is shown in the doing (James 2:14-26). Faith without works is dead. Many men speak of freedom but their actions do not accord with what they say.
Christians, in your smugness, arrogance, conceit and materialism, the time is at hand when you will be considered “a terrorist” if you claim your faith, proclaim Biblical teaching, belong to a patriotic group or even a pro-life organization.
