Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 7:1-4
What happened to America? When we were young, things were a lot different: no illegal drugs, no rock and roll music, no dirty movies, no sexual revolution, no massive unpayable debt problems, no locked doors in many of our neighborhoods, no open homosexuals on television and movies, no same-sex marriages, and our families were not being torn up by divorce, and our moms were staying home with their children, etc. It didn’t just “happen.”
During the last half-century, someone stole our culture! And they replaced it with a new and very different one in its place--a sleazy and decadent place in which we live today. The story of “how” and “why” is one of the most important parts of our nation’s history—and practically almost no one knows the story. And that is the way our enemies what it to be.
What happened is that America’s traditional Christian culture, which had grown up over generations from our generational Christian roots, was swept aside by an ideology; because of our being disobedient to God’s law. The ideology is cultural Marxism—identified as “political correctness” or “multiculturalism.”
This Marxism goes back not to the 1960s, but prior to World War I. The number one goal of that cultural Marxism, since its creation, has been the destruction of Western culture and the Christian religion.
Before World War I, Marxist theory said that if Europe ever erupted in war, the working classes in every in every European country would rise in revolt, overthrow their governments and create a new Communistic Europe. But when war broke out in the summer of 1914, that didn’t happen; the Communist revolution did occur in Russia in 1917, but attempts to spread that revolution to other countries failed because the workers did not support it.
What went wrong was the question the Marxist asked their selves. They came to the same answer: That Western Culture and the Christian religion had blinded the working class to the Marxist interests, that a Communist revolution was impossible in the West, until both could be destroyed. That has always been their goal—the destruction of the Christian’s covenantal exclusive doctrines.
