HISTORICAL RECORD: The Two ‘-Isms’ Responsible For The MOST Social Evil

Written by Allan Erickson on January 8, 2017

Throughout the West during the last 200 years, a growing number of secular progressives and religious fanatics have roamed the earth, scorching it everywhere they went. They are the enemies of liberty. Unless they are defeated, they will eventually destroy all decency, ending civilization.

Overstated? Not according to the record. When we talk about secular progressives and religious fanatics we have two groups in mind: jihadists (Islamic supremacists), and atheists, including communists, national socialists, fascists, and others driven to dominate in the belief they have a right to run the show.

Standing alone against the horde, traditionalists, in the main Christians, people who believe the truth of Scripture and the efficacy of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. In this number we can count many Europeans, some Africans, many South Koreans, Japanese and Australians, but few others.

Have Christians made grave errors? Certainly. Have their ranks been infiltrated by wolves in sheep’s clothing. Time and again. We acknowledge exceptions to the rule, although speaking broadly in terms of the larger trends throughout history, it must be admitted Christians have been the main force for good, while great evils have been the majority province of the atheist and the jihadist. The atheist and the jihadist never self-correct. The Christian is commanded to do so, and miraculously, they frequently are found repenting of their sin.

The fact is slavery, genocide, war and murder have been, in the main, perpetrated against humanity on a vast scale by the godless forces of secularism for centuries, particularly in the last 200 years, joined in earnest during the last 60 years by resurgent Islamic supremacists seeking world domination. In the last century these groups were responsible for the killing of at least 100 million people (perhaps twice that number), all in the name of privilege: their assumed “right” to rule the world and dictate to others how we will live.

Today we read Christians are the most persecuted group worldwide, a fact of the present found true most frequently throughout the last 2,000 years. Yet, what are our children taught at university? That Christians are the killers, the slavers, the ones promoting tyranny, imperialism, colonialism. The enemies of liberty and civilization are very accomplished in the ways of deception and destruction.

The world has looked to America for salvation for 100 years. During the last eight we gave them leaders who accommodate and promote atheism and jihad, dancing to the tune of the lawless one. In so doing, have we betrayed the rest of the world to the ultimate destruction of hope and trust?

Will Americans now return to the faith of our fathers, focusing on the One and only personification of Truth, the exact representation of the Father?

Will America thereby act once again to protect the weak, the orphan, the widow and the defenseless?

Or will we descend into the kind of suicidal selfishness that inspires our enemies?

Share if you agree atheism and Jihadism have been bad news for the world.
