3-2-19 Socialism In the Churches – Part 2

Introduction: Marx

Socialism In The Churches has been a force to deal with since the mid 1800’s. Statistically Christianity is in a decline and therefore morally the nation is following. George Washington and other Founders clearly identified that we must be a moral and virtuous people to have good governance. The downturn is apparent due to the reality of the philosophical shift that occured in the early to mid 1800’s – the churches engaged in the ‘social gospel’ – Not – the ‘extensible’ Reformation Gospel.

The influence of socialism in the churches has opened the door to tolerance which is not a Reformation Principle. The disruption of orthodoxy over the last 100 years resulted in many ideas fostering the main denominations and a number of the 40 mega-churches to not teach the ‘extensibility’ of the Gospel. With 217 modern denominations or non-denominations, what is the core theology that permeates the beliefs of individuals? Going from two predominant denominations at the beginning of the Colonies to these 217 is a significant shift as to why then even the ideas of civil governance have been thought of. Continue reading

My dad and his oldest brother were of the latter category while the younger brother of the former. Things could get heated as they evaluated the political as well as the monetary discrepancies of rich compared to the middle class. The poor were never a consideration in the conversations, ah, sometimes arguments. I always listened intently because I saw that on the one hand, emotionalism sustained the argument of the majority over the other hand, rational-factual retorts of the minority players at the table. What was the real basis of what was happening and when did the deeper conversation about this with Dad play out? Continue reading

2-25-17 CPAC and the Relevance of My Book

Last week was fantastic watching CPAC!
The content was more on target with what I like to hear – that being our grounding is on Constitutionalism. Regarding Constitutionalism, in the 2nd and 3rd segments I intend to discuss why my book “Not ALL Conservatives Are Constitutionalists” is even more relevant as we move from CPAC into Action.
I am going to do some frothing in the 1st segment today. Once again the progressive/socialist/Marxist pastors are promoting lawlessness. I continue to hope that the Evangelical pastors will become stronger to stand up for truth as those during the Revolution period did. Continue reading
