The Great Deception – Part II

Thinking Globally-Part IIThe most dangerous threat to Christianity is secularism. You might object and say quite forcefully that Communism is the greatest threat. I would argue that it’s really not because the deception of secularism is more dangerous and has already led millions astray, whereas communism in its purest form allows no voice to the people, no freedom of expression, and no religious tolerance. Therefore, Christians in a communist country know that they are being oppressed. In 1844 Karl Marx a revolutionary German socialist philosopher declared that religion was the”opiate of the masses.” For any form of government that states unequivocally that all religion is a drug to its people that must be forcefully removed will in time become a failed state.

The civilization is deeply confused clutching to an emotional rollercoaster as its being jolted about by every crisis or dilemma facing the world. To think globally we must start by looking up and stop being captivated by each individual event. Clearly the media reports many stories but loses its focus quickly when a larger story comes along. We must move away from the tunnel vision practiced by the media and start to associate ourselves with all of history, with events in every country, with the ebb and flow of humanity and then put that all into context with God’s Word.
