commentary: Mightier Than The Sword (Part Sixteen)
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 19-Sep-15; Sermon #1287c; 9 minutes
John Ritenbaugh continues his expose of Karl Marx, described as the angry, belligerent, dark fellow from Trier, a man who was possibly possessed by Satan himself, who wrote an extremely caustic and pathogenic document, "The Communist Manifesto," characterized as socialism on steroids, a document which calls for the responsibility for education to be removed from parents and given to the state. The proponents of Marxism have infiltrated the universities and public schools, destroying any knowledge of the Creator. Communism demands taking away property and the means of productivity from the individual, placing them in the hands of the state. Marxist Communism, whether followed by Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, or Fidel Castro, makes all of its citizenry bond-slaves to a tyrannical, totalitarian dictatorship. The last resistance to vile, degenerate, reprobate Marxist Communism is the family and the church, institutions under continuous attack by humanist, Marxist-dominated 'progressive,' leftist liberalism. This same kind of horrific curse alighted on ancient Israel when they rejected God's leadership and chose a king like every other gentile country. Samuel prophesied that an earthly king would eventually enslave all his subjects for his own whim and amusement.
