The War of Ideas

Joseph R. Nicola

The Information War of Ideas is brainwashing many Americans and Christians alike. 

Islam, Communism, Marxism, Socialism and Humanism are joining forces to destroy the United States and Christianity.

Here is the list of 45 goals of Communists/Marxists to destroy the United States. 

January 10, 1963 as recorded in Congressional Record (57 years ago). 

Look closely at #17, #27, #39 and #40. Bold type added.

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

  1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
  2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
  3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
  5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
  6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
  7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
  8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
  9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
  10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
  11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
  12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
  13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
  14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
  15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
  16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
  17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
  19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
  20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
  21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
  23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
  24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
  25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
  26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
  27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.” Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
  28. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
  29. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
  30. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
  31. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
  32. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
  33. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
  34. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
  35. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  36. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  37. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
  38. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
  39. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
  40. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. 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.
  41. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
  42. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
  43. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court

Remember, this is from 1963. Most have no idea this has been going on and these goals are just about completed.

Christianity is being targeted. The Evangelical community is the last bulwark of our Judeo-Christian Constitutional Republic. At this moment the war is raging for the pulpits of America and some have been overcome. Many have already been deceived and are spreading Marxist (Socialism) propaganda supported by twisting scripture whether knowingly or unknowingly. Using terms like social justice, racism, white privilege, compassion, common ground, generosity, tolerance, acceptance and unity while perverting the true Biblical definition and context. The enemy is working from within to conquer and divide. Look for other Biblical terms to be hijacked and redefined. 

Globalism, Sustainability, Social Justice, Immigration, Environmentalism, Collectivism, Economic Justice, Climate Change, Critical Race Theory and other agendas are being used to prey on the heart strings of Christians to change Christianity in America by moving us into Socialism. 

After the horrendous attack on 9-11 the pressure to return to “normal” was on. We were told by the president, many politicians and other voices to return to normal activity as quickly as possible. Get back to living your “normal” life like you did before 9-11. Terrible advice! The “church” responded to the call to “normal” and here we are. 

“Normal” is not going to cut it! 

Let us not forget that it was the religious conservatives that could not recognize Jesus and had Him crucified. In the 1930’s some Christian churches in Germany compromised with the Nazis and some even had a picture of Hitler and a Nazi flag. Today some churches are flying a different flag, a rainbow flag. Matthew 5:10-11 will be the portion of those who will not compromise truth in this hour. 

The “church”, along with the pastoral gift, is not equipped to handle this war, it is up to the Ekklesia. Jesus already told us the gates of hades will not be able to overpower the Ekklesia. Jesus didn’t use the word church like many Bibles do. The Ekklesia is founded on apostles and prophets, not pastors, teachers or evangelists.

We must know the Word and His words. We must be led by the Holy Spirit, not our emotions. We must recognize His voice above all others and respond to what He is saying and doing. This is no longer optional, it is mandatory for 2020 and beyond. Victory is secure for those who do.

Pseudo-Christianity

Joseph R. Nicola

Pseudo-Christianity is nothing new. It just manifests in different forms. I say pseudo-Christianity, however it isn’t very Christian at all. It looks like it and some of the language is the same, but it is becoming more and more watered down and mixed with the ideas and influence of Humanism, Islam, Marxism, Socialism and Communism.

Ready or not the Church in America is changing. On the one hand there are those who are understanding that “church” as usual isn’t working and they are discovering what Jesus intended all along, the Ekklesia. On the other hand there are those who are accepting and preaching anti-Biblical ideas that will destroy Christianity from the inside out. Of course that is the goal of the ones out to do their best to destroy America. To destroy America, Christianity must be infiltrated, watered down and mixed with non-Biblical ideals. In other words, become non-Christian. Sadly, this is being accomplished with the participation of many Christians.

If truth is watered down, is it still truth? No, it is not. If the Gospel is watered down, is it still the Gospel? No, it is not. 

2 Peter 2:1-2; But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned;…

“God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.”   ~ David Wilkerson

As Balaam couldn’t curse the people of God, he knew the best way to defeat them was to get them to destroy themselves, Numbers 25. When the Israelites played the harlot and mixed with Baal worship they were destroyed by their own hands. This same strategy is being used today. The destroyers push their agenda using inter-faith dialogue, Critical Race Theory (racism, white privilege), intersectionality, hate speech, climate change, social justice, immigration, open borders, globalism, sustainability, gender confusion, LGBTQ+, toxic masculinity, abortion, group think, information warfare and many other things. Tragically many Christians are duped and jumping onboard accepting these things because of the emotions they arouse and/or ignorance of scripture. Biblical love, acceptance and tolerance are being misdefined and perverted.

Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society. ~Antonio Gramsci, one of the founders of the Communist Party in Italy during the early 20th century.

There is very little to no Biblical understanding about God’s purpose for civil government and His purpose for His people, the Ekklesia. The lack of understanding of these two different mandates is causing confusion among Christians. There is an anger toward our country for not being the type of Christian they themselves are unwilling to be. The God given mandate to civil government is not the same as the one God gave to His people, the Ekklesia. I have written about this in previous blogs.

There is a type of concentration camp in America today called “Group Think”. Group Think is defined by Merriam Webster Dictionary as a pattern of thought characterized by self-deception, forced manufacture of consent, and conformity to group values and ethics. The population is being herded into this brain-washing “Group Think Camp” in public schools, college campuses, universities, seminaries, politics and yes even in Christianity. A propaganda assault (information warfare) is happening and churches are being targeted. The destroyers desire to sever us from our Judeo-Christian roots and history to indoctrinate us to anti-Christ ideals using emotional hot buttons that pull on the heart strings of Christians.

Click here to listen to what Dr. Bella Dodd had to say about the Communist tactics 67 years ago. She was a member of the Communist Party USA. In a speech at Fordham University in 1953 she explains the Communist strategy for the United States and how she helped to infiltrate the Catholic Church. Make no mistake they are actively working to take over Christianity in America so they can take over America.

When a lie is repeated often enough, well, some will accept it as truth. No matter how often a lie is repeated, it is still a lie. You know, there may be things we hear that aren’t true, but we want them to be true so much we believe them anyway. We can even twist scripture, taking it out of context and make it fit our warped sense of truth. The battle field is the mind and where spiritual warfare is fought. Scripture teaches us to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. Every thought and all the information that comes to us we must take it captive and line it up with scripture. Scripture in context I might add.

2 Cor 10:3-6; For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete. 

In Hebrews 5:11-13 Christians that were expected to be teachers “by now” are being rebuked because they have become dull of hearing, partaking of only milk and not solid food. You see, saying all the right things, attending “church”, reading our Bibles, praying, listening to preaching and singing songs, doesn’t mean we are becoming Christ-like and living godly lives. These are all good things and essential, however, it doesn’t mean we are growing and maturing in Christ. Knowing what scripture says is a great start, but it doesn’t mean we are actually living it. Look at what verse 14 says; But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil. Because of practice. As the result of living godly, holy lives, becoming Christ-like in character, our senses are trained to discern good and evil. Today many Christians are calling good evil and evil good! 

Jesus said we are the light of the world and the salt of the earth, Matthew 5. If the light is hidden or the salt loses its taste, what then? As long as we continue to stay ignorant of the scriptures, speak it, but don’t live it, all the while disconnected from the public square, America is in serious trouble. This does not need to happen. We must be aware of our enemies tactics and know when destructive heresies have been secretly introduced. We must know our God, His nature, His character, His voice. We must see what He is doing and our part in it.

“We have to see that these days have to come, before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say there are children which are saved by the power of God which are disobedient children. And there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God, who all the time are longing to be more obedient.”  ~ Smith Wigglesworth

We can choose to be part of the solution. It is time to tighten our Belt of Truth and allow our roots to go deeper searching out the water of the Word of Life.

The Ekklesia is rising!
