How the Socialist/Leftist Attacks Christianity

This is an article my brother wrote I wanted to post because I thought it was relevant to the current state of society in the U.S. and the world.

I was listening to “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist” [podcast] Saturday morning and the person [being] interviewed, James Lindsay, put into words something I [my brother] have been trying to come up with a way of expressing. Lindsay said, “They have weaponized our compassion against us.” This is so true.

The show before that on “The Christian Worldview [podcast],” talked about how the socialists have sieged education and dumbed people down with Common Core and “Social, emotional learning” to indoctrinate the people in America, who are fundamentally individualistic, into good little obedient socialists.

Anyway, I worked through my notes, three times, to add this info and bring it into a statement and overview of what I have come to understand. So it is a synopsis of what I have come to understand and what was in those two one-hour programs.

So between the lines is this statement:

The left has weaponized our compassion against us to work toward their desire to create their socialist utopia. They use an imprecise warped definition of love. That love is affirming of another person’s desire and feelings, no matter even if they are destructive. This leads us to affirm their delusions. They try to make this into [us] unconditionally loving them. They say our confronting them in their delusions about truth in love is instead hatred and bigotry.

The non-Christians and leftists try to make a change to their reality that fits their wants, delusions, and worldview. While we Christians have our own desires changed in an instant (Titus 3:4) being made a new man (Eph. 2:15, 4:24, Col. 3:10) to fit God’s reality.

Socialism, in general, misunderstands human nature. They deny the sinful nature we are all born with and consider all humans born good (Pelagianism). Humans turn bad and evil, they claim, due to social pressures and oppression.

Today’s Social Gnosticism claims the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is just an evil demiurge who removed man from his original social “heaven” in the Garden of Eden into this world of sin and misery. This makes the Christian God evil. Showing why socialism hates God and especially Christianity, which must be removed first. In this scheme, the devil, Lucifer, claims to be the “good god” trying to return man to his original freedom in his socialist utopia, “Luciferianism.” This is the heart of Social Marxism, also known as Social Gnosticism. They use social pressures such as cancelation, sarcasm, [and] ostracism like their version of diversity, equality, and inclusion as a control and manipulation technique. Again, using our compassion against us.

We, as Christians, must love the truth to the point that we not only speak the truth in love to those who are deceived but must also defend the truth against these leftist “angels of light” (2 Cor. 11:14). This may cost us our very life. We must train overseers and other Christians to expose and confront these deceptions (Jer. 1:17, Eph. 5:5-7).
