You get your Communism knowledge from Hollywood? In the Soviet Union that was NOT communism, in Cuba that is NOT Communism in fact every country that
claims is communist is lying. Do you even understand the goal of Communism?
I've been checking in on ATS and I do not see alot besides NK, No news on weather or local activities.
The distraction I believe is really to keep people from noticing whats going on at home.
You act as if Communism is a living entity which imparts its will. It's not. It's a system.
Now intelligent, but evil, people that wish to have massive amounts of power, and also wish to persecute those that they hate, realize that the system
of communism is an excellent way to accomplish those feats. Because silly people believe in the "goal" of communism, they become for it.
And then the leaders use the system to their advantage. That's how it works. That is always how it works. There is never a time when it won't
happen that way.
And it is no surprise that people will defend something about which they are uneducated (though they believe they are, for some reason); as well, will
create false accusations and lies in order to perpetuate their argument.
(like saying that Richard Wurmbrand represents Hollywood in any way, shape, or form.)
So a video message puts you off.
Then I suggest you go learn about the people that are in prisons, being tortured, in solitary confinement, and being killed, today, in the name of
communism; and all
of them because they are Christian or defend Christians.
As for the other poster that said my ideas only sound good if they applied to all religions:
It isn't about what we want to sound good, it is only about the truth. And the truth is that Christians are the only people that die innocently and
without violence in the name of their Lord, Jesus Christ.
Now the only other religion which people die for it, or claim to die for it, are Muslims. And I can tell you for a fact that the suicide terrorists
are not dying because they believe they will go to paradise. They performed the acts that they performed out of their hatred for others and for
themselves. They were justified in their minds. They said to themselves, "We may not go to paradise, but we certainly will go down in history."
But they were too foolish to realize that their actions earned them damnation; and also, that being in death, they would not remember their deed, nor
be able to receive glory for their deed, because they are dead.
As well, if Muslims are faced with denying Allah, if someone were to hold a gun to their face, a knife to their neck, or to torture them in the way
they have tortured Christians, they would deny in a second.
But true Christians do not torture people to believe in Jesus Christ. True Christians never have. Many false teachers have done so, thereby negating
the name of Christ in themselves and also in the people whom they taught.
Now people of all other religions do not die for their religion. They refuse, and give up. These people do not threaten communism, which considers
the state, and the ruler of the state, "God". They have no reason to torture these people. To them, and also their religions teach, that whatever
it takes to save your own life, that you should do. So therefore, they are comfortable in their religions. And also some are taught reincarnation;
and therefore, they never have to face hellfire.
These people are not threats to the state.
It's foolishness. The states know it.
But Christianity is a threat to the state. Because true Christians will only ever worship God, they will suffer any amount of torture you deal out,
they will die for Jesus Christ without violence; they will bless their executioners, they will bless their attackers, they will bless their enemies.
And the state hates that. The state needs people to be in FEAR! They don't want people with confidence. And confidence only comes from the peace
of God. Any other confidence is temporary, fake; amassed through government, power, wealth; all things that pass away. But if you take everything
away from a Christian, you only magnify God in that Christian. The more you strip away from a Christian, the more Christ comes alive in that one.
And it is a terror to the state. It's proof of their coming destruction. It's proof that there is a hellfire waiting for them.
No, no religions can compare to the true God. Not even close. And the people that follow the true God are the most powerful people you will ever
meet. Why else does the state need to kill them, if they are not powerful? The state NEEDS to destroy God's children to protect what they have.
They do not realize they perform a service. They separate the wheat and the chaff, and they reveal truth by their hatred.
