The Downfall of Communism
Some seventy-five years ago a man by the name of Karl Marx put together the blueprint for a great society. Actually, the idea wasn’t anything new; it just had a new twist. The first century Christians had the same idea after Jesus Christ told them to share what they have so no one will want for anything. Many Christians have been living in similar communities ever since.
Marxism had one great flaw that was eventually its downfall. Karl Marx believed that Religion was the opium of the people. After seeing
all the havoc that Christianity has wreaked down through the centuries, it’s not hard to understand where this idea came from. He felt
that it was a crutch and got in the way of the progress of human endeavours. His ideologies supported birth control, abortion and
euthanasia. Religion got in the way of this. Little did he know that Communism could only work if everyone involved does it
willingly and it has God at its centre. For years the people of the United States became so paranoid about this concept that
what occurred rivalled the Salem witch trials. Anyone thought to have Communist connections was put on trial.
Are we not doing the same thing now? Even Hitler didn’t take religion out of public life. He just twisted the word of God to meet his own needs. We
have preachers who are trying that too. Jim Jones and David Karesh were very good at it.
