Contending for the faith | Making Disciples | Equipping the Saints for Ministry

by Jeannette Haley

Have you considered as we begin another New Year that there is a very real possibility that you could lose your freedom-your freedom nationally and as a Christian?  It may or may not come as a shock to you that Communism is only pretending to be “dead”; that it is very much alive and that this cancer has infiltrated every facet of our present-day American system. Any so-called “national emergency” could activate the scores of “Executive Orders” signed by our past Presidents (especially Clinton) thus opening the way for martial law and the overthrow of our personal freedoms. Any “dissident” who protests the controlling authorities will find him or herself in one of the 123 concentration camps throughout America that are already in place for the American people. It’s time for America to WAKE UP!

Equally true, it’s also time for Christians to WAKE UP to the fact that Communism is a form of religion that has infiltrated the church. It must be understood that Communism is both a political system and a religious antichrist system. In the political sense Communism deprives individuals of their freedom to independently function in every area of their lives. In other words, people who live under the oppressive rule of Communism are told what to believe, how to think, where to work, how to live, how many children they can have, how much money they can keep, who they can and cannot associate with, what they cannot talk about and so forth. Thus, for the individual, Communism replaces God in their life. Instead of worshipping and obeying the Lord, they must pledge their allegiance to this satanic and idolatrous religion of humanism.
