Marx vs Spurgeon

“Karl Marx, an apostle of evil, and Charles Spurgeon, the “Prince of Preachers,” were evangelists with messages that couldn’t have been more different—and they lived in the same city at the same time.” https://founders.org/2020/09/02/karl-marx-vs-charles-spurgeon-an-epic-struggle-for-the-souls-of-men-in-19th-century-london/

Do not miss this article! Excerpts below.

“It is extraordinary to me that both Karl Marx (1818-1883) and Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) lived and worked in the same city at the same time. Both were, in a sense, evangelists contending for the souls of men with their competing visions of humanity. Moreover, each was at the height of his powers at the same time as the other. While Marx was preaching salvation through bloody revolution, Spurgeon, on the other side of the city, was preaching salvation through the blood and grace of Jesus Christ…

“It would be wrong to say—as many preachers do—that addressing matters of politics falls outside of the purview of the clergy. Of no other sphere of life do they say it. Regardless, Spurgeon certainly didn’t agree with this sentiment. Christianity isn’t merely an accessory to a man’s life; it should define it. Thus, a man’s politics are simply the outward manifestation of the convictions of his heart. Socialism, Spurgeon knew, was much more than an economic or political question. It is a spiritualquestion, if only because it denies the very existence of the spiritual. It is, as I have written elsewhere, atheism masquerading as political philosophy…

“It is very likely that the preaching of Spurgeon, and others like him, prevented the violent Revolution in Britain that Marx sought. Ironically, that revolution would come in the unindustrialized Russia of 1917, when Vladimir Lenin would, at the cost of millions of lives, implement Marx’s unworkable ideas. That is in no small measure due to the fact that there was no viable church to critique the undeliverable promises of socialism…

Biblical Patriot Resources and Action Oriented Organizations

Posted: 2020-12-30 | Updated: 2020-12-30

Biblical, Educational, Constitutional, and Action Oriented Organizations

  1. Alternative communications. Private, not scanned by big tech and used to market ads or re-educate you.
  2. Ministry, education, news and political organizations to follow. Use email lists and alternative platforms to ensure you get updates that might be censored on “big tech” and mainstream media. 
  3. Organizations, leaders, and movements to follow to be informed, educated, and potentially organize and take action.

They may not always meet the “big tech” user standards, but they will better meet free speech, truth, justice, and liberty standards.

Also, this isn’t to abandon “big tech.” Stay and engage there. But this is to make sure you aren’t having your preferred media censored and having algorithms decide what you should see to re-orient your thinking toward approved thinking.

Also, making the list does not imply full endorsement. I may generally agree and think it’s worthy without giving 100% blind support.

Election 2020 – Church Wake Up, Get Busy, and Rejoice!


I really enjoyed this analysis of the 2020 Election. Link below…

In particular, the call to Christians to “get busy!”

Some key points:

Build!

Be builders and makers.

“Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat their produce.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:5‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/jer.29.5.esv

Be fruitful!

Birth rates matter, and Christians have a mandate from God.

“Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give your daughters in marriage, that they may bear sons and daughters; multiply there, and do not decrease.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/jer.29.6.esv

Establish Households!

I’m adding this as the broader collective of building, multiplying, and instructing from Genesis 1:27-28, Jeremiah 29:4-7 and Psalm 127.

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.””
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭1:27-28‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/gen.1.27-28.esv

Instruct your children!

Prepare them to be the leaders, witnesses, disciple makers of the future! “Don’t be breeders for Babylon!”

“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭127:3-5‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/psa.127.3-5.esv

“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”
‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭6:6-7‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/deu.6.6-7.esv

“but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭19:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/mat.19.14.esv

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:4‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/eph.6.4.esv

“Go and make disciples!”

They don’t mention it, and I think it’s probably because it should go with out saying, but Christians must be about making disciples. It isn’t a debatable matter.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28:19-20‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/mat.28.19-20.esv

Be joyful in the fight!

Our King has won! He is on His throne! We are His ambassadors in this fallen world. So rejoice! Even if it feels like we are losing some political or cultural battle, rejoice!

“Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready;”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:6-7‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/59/rev.19.6-7.esv

Reform the Church and ReEnchant the World with God’s Truth and Grace!

Enchant (latin: encantio): to speak meaning into.

If the church is not reenchanting this fallen world with God’s truth and grace, then it is being disenchanted with the lies of Satan!

“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
Romans 10:14-15

Prayer, public witness of the church, and proclaiming God’s truth and grace.

Why are we here (in this sin fallen world)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To make disciples of all nations.
Matthew 28:18-20

Why are we here (on the sidewalk outside an abortion clinic)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To love the captive soul and to preach the good news!
Romans 10:14-15

What message are we sharing and bearing witness to? 
There is a God that created the heavens and the earth.
We humans are created in His image.
We are sinners, we have rebelled against Him, and justly deserve our due punishment of death and damnation.
But God is merciful and loving. 
Jesus is God the only begotten Son and He took our punishment upon Himself in our place.
Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death and securing the hope of our salvation.
We need only confess our sins, proclaim Jesus is lord and savior, and repent and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after!
Romans 3:10-18, 23
1 Corinthians 15:3-8
John 3:16-21
Ephesians 2:1-10

Leviticus 18:21; Matt. 5:17-19; Acts 2:37-41

Overcome Evil with Good – Where are the Men?

“I will not stand by in the presence of evil,” Alita Battle Angel

Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
Proverbs 25:26

Where are the men…

Who is responsible for the safety of your family? Hint: it’s not the government or the police. It’s you. You are the man!

How much time do you spend training? Is it more than you spend golfing, playing video games, or watching tv?

Have you trained for a mass shooter incident? Do you know what to do?

It’s time to take responsibility. This culture needs good men willing to confront evil.

Therefore I stationed some of the people behind the lowest points of the wall at the exposed places, posting them by families, with their swords, spears and bows. After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.” 
Nehemiah 4:6, 11, 13-15

“The grey man is one who simply blends in to any scene or situation. He does not stand out. He does not boast about his skills or abilities, but he is ready to use them the instant they are needed. He is hidden in plain sight but is ready for action. You have seen the grey man; you just haven’t noticed him. That is the way it’s supposed to be.”

Safety and Security – Duty to Protect

Statesmen

“the men who composed the first Colonial Congress… were profoundly convinced of what statesmen know and mere politicians never perceive – that ideas are the life of a people – that the conscience, not the pocket, is the real citadel of a nation”  

Lord Chatham
