The bloody hands of the secular “state”
Nietzsche said “Western civilization is based on Christianity. Remove Christianity and the ideas fall too.”
Nietzsche also warned that, with the decline of Christianity, new and opposing ideas would rise. The Radical redefinition of the family, the revival of eugenic theories and arguments for infanticide have all risen from their Nazi graves and now explode off the Lips of today’s Democrats. They promote a clear global extinction of the principles of human dignity.
Consider Human Equality? A world we hear a great deal off the twin tongues of the left.
Why do we hold to it? People are unequal in height, weight strength, intelligence, and in about every other human quality. Our Christian founders knew this just as you do. What they we asserting was that we are moral equals. Our Constitution and Bill of rights are based clearly on the fact that each of our lives has a moral worth no greater and no less than that of any other That God places infinite value on every human life is a biblically based Christian belief not a secularist one.
Darwinism led to Nazism, eugenics, the Holocaust, and many other heinous historical events. Atheism and Communism have all been attributed to evolution. Ethnic cleansing and genocide are the historical fruits the humanist tree has yielded and threatens to produce again.
The Nazis’ rise to power in the 1920s resulted after an economic crisis in that country. The exploitation of deeply rooted anti-Semitism came after Hitler’s Godless and deeply secular government gained power. Sound familiar?
Hitler loved Darwin and followed his ideas to their inevitable conclusion. He devised his heinous plan to exterminate the Jewish people. Darwin and evolutionary theory can clearly be traced backward to explain Hitler’s genocidal madness.
The Godless crimes of Communism over seventy years around the world have continuously yielded terror, torture, famine, mass deportations, and massacres.
From the killing fields to Castro’s Cuba we find death, and bloodshed in the name of the state!
Communist crimes against humanity are endless! Stalin's destroyed hundreds of churches in Moscow. Wide scale devastation was visited on Chinese culture by Mao's Red Guards.
The death toll mounts—as many as 25 million in the former Soviet Union, 65 million in China, 1.7 million in Cambodia.
Secularism and its use of “The State” have killed more people throughout history than every religion combined to the tenth power.
Christians on the contrary created the modern concept of personal freedom which is rooted in a respect for the individual. This is a doctrine that literally shares the rib of Christianity asserting that all human beings are moral agents, created in God’s image with the ability to be the architects of their own lives.
William Wilberforce spearheaded a campaign that began with almost no support driven by entirely Christian convictions in 1883 to outlaw slavery in Britain. Among the first to embrace abolitionism in America were the Quakers and other Christians.
Massive Christian revivals known as the first great awakening in the mid-eighteenth century, helped lay the moral foundation of the American Revolution.
The second great awakening lead again by Christians resulted in the temperance movement for women’s suffering.
We are great only because our Christian roots have mined the good and fertile soil of freedom. Christianity yields the great human experiment that is America. Secularism forges the rings of prosperity into the chains of state controlled tyranny.
