The Captain's Journal » And You Thought You Could Appease The Communists?
There is no appeasement. There is no compromise. There is no getting long. They want an end to the American system and the destruction of the middle class.
I do have one more point to make. I’ve heard some of my folk (Christian) say they want peace, preaching and prayer.
Fine, all points. But peace will not happen, prayer is always good, but regarding preaching, these people don’t even have a common language with us.
Let me see if I can explain it this way. You’ve all heard the stories about missionaries who had difficulty with their work because the tribe to whom they were witnessing had no word for “such-and-such,” let’s say, sin, or forgiveness, or atonement, or grace.
But that’s not right. It’s more than just the lack of a common word. It’s the lack of a common thought. Gordon Clark says in his book (this is a simplification) “Language and Theology” that words are merely tags for thoughts. The use of words constructed into sentences has as its point the communication of a thought from on person to another.
Horace Mann and John Dewey successful eradicated Christian thought from the American scene, and the dispensationalists, rather than fight it with scholarship, sit and wait on being spirited away from the problem.
America is done. The communists today lack a common world view, common thoughts, and a common language even to understand what we’re saying when we speak to them. Do you see? We don’t even speak the same language as the communists today.
Their redemption means the destruction of Western civilization, although they wouldn’t use the word redemption. Even witnessing to them means a basic level of understanding and education they don’t have. This is a multi-generational problem, not one that can be fixed with a sermon.
LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATEDemocrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
