Richard Wurmbrand had the godly wisdom to warn us about communist ideology however, we have not managed to prevent its influence in our society. In fact, in recent years, many changes have been brought about by influential people promoting communist beliefs.
Point 17 of the flyer refers to schools and universities adopting ideas which are viewed as progressive, yet deliberately line up with communist views.
Point 20 refers to views promoted on television, radio, editorial writing and policymaking. The opinions expressed may be acceptable to non-Christians, but as believers, they are unapologetically anti-Christian and defy Biblical teaching.
Point 24 speaks of the elimination of laws which govern obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech.
Point 25 discusses the breakdown of cultural standards and morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books and films.
What has become of our society? Where anything which was once considered good has somehow outlived its value and is now deemed wrong. This is spoken of in Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”
The strength of the family unit speaks to the very fabric of our society and the wellbeing of future generations, yet point 40 states, “Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce”.
Point 42 is particularly relevant for today; “Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special interest groups should rise up and use ‘united force’ to solve economic, political or social problems”.
Has this point not been manifested recently, with the influence of world events spilling into Australia?
My warning to every Christian is to be alert and prayerful. Do not be caught asleep. The enemy called communism has already entered our camp and is doing whatever it can to find a foothold in Australia, to destroy our God centred Christians values. Be aware of news that misleads and heed the living Word of God.
