I have been reading the book, Beyond Biden: Rebuilding the America we Love, by Newt Gingrich. I have to hand it to Newt for learning and understanding all the stuff he has put in his book, especially about wokeism and racism and critical race theory, etc. It is so complex to wade through it all. And it has its root in Marxism; and its goal is to destroy America. I feel so sorry for all the black people who are so taken in by it all. They have already gone through enough. Now it seems that they are forced to go through it all over again.
America is not a racist country. But we are now being told that everything in America is racist and that it all has to be torn down and “built back better.” This is why they are endeavoring to rewrite our language—because everything we say and do is embedded with racism. For example, the term hiking, baseball, Star Wars, specialty coffee, classical music, the candy industry; those terms they say are racist. And we have to get rid of them. I suppose they are thinking that if black people are not substantially involved in those things, the terms can’t be anything but racist. And so, anything where there has not been an equal involvement between blacks and whites is racist (but I’m sure there is more to it than that).
But for those who tear it all down, aren’t they also being racist? And if we do tear everything down and build it over, won’t all the new terms and ideas and culture be a new racism? Can man in his sinful nature get rid of the sin of racism? No! Only God who is perfect can do that. Man needs a new heart, a new self, which will come only through a conversion, only through redemption through Jesus Christ. He will redeem us from our old sinful racist nature. Then, for the first time we can know how to overcome racism and how to be whole. And then when we sin again, we can know where to go to find forgiveness.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things past away; behold, new things have come (2 Corinthians 5:17).
There seems to be two sides to Critical Race Theory. In one respect CRT is merely a broad study of race and racism. It is a changing package of ideas. It is a bunch of so-called race scholars trying to make sense out of our country as it is—a racist country; they are trying to understand how we got where we are. But another side of CRT is more dominant. These race scholars I think have a strategy: to infiltrate society and our schools with their ideas. But I’m not sure what their ultimate goal is. They may say it is to make society better; but at what cost? I fear it is at the cost of Socialism and even Communism.
In my reading on this topic I ran across this interesting article that was very revealing to me: A Lesson on Critical Race Theory. Here are a few quotes from the article on what CRT is.
A practice of interrogating the role of race and racism in society.
It critiques how the social construction of race and institutionalized racism perpetuate a racial caste system that relegates people of color to the bottom tiers.
CRT recognizes that race intersects with other identities, including sexuality, gender identity, and others.
CRT recognizes that racism is not a bygone relic of the past. Instead, it acknowledges that the legacy of slavery, segregation, and the imposition of second-class citizenship on Black Americans and other people of color continue to permeate the social fabric of this nation.
CRT is an acknowledgement that racismis a normal feature of society and is embedded within systems and institutions.
CRT recognizes that racism is codified in law, embedded in structures, and woven into public policy.
CRT can be an approach used to theorize, examine, and challenge the ways which race and racism implicitly and explicitly impact social structures, practices, and discourses. (I used bold for emphasis)
CRT is an academic movement of civil-rights scholars and activists in the United States who seek to critically examine the law as it intersects with issues of race and to challenge mainstream liberal approaches to racial justice.
It is rooted in the desire to understand how a regime of white supremacy and its subordination of people of color have been created and maintained in America.
Critics often call the theory Marxist.
In plain terms, critical race theory holds that racism is part of a broader pattern in America: It is woven into laws, and it shows up in who gets a job interview, the sort of home loans people are offered, how they are treated by police, and other facets of daily life large and small.
I don’t have too much to says other than what I have already said. Overall, I would definitely say that CRT is a Marxist theory and a movement, and we should try to stop it. Some like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is doing just that and I applaud him. He said, “Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money.” Missouri, Idaho, and Tennessee have introduced bills aimed at barring CRT in the classroom. Good move! Also, former President Trump has tried to stop it. We need him back.
So many things, movements are leaning toward Marxism these days. BLM, for instance, is closely tied to CRT. They are on the front lines of it. But you need to know that Satan is the one behind it all.
The Real Answer to Racism
Let me say, in conclusion, that if you really want to combat racism in this country and in the world, you don’t need a CRT. You need to read and study the bible for the answers. If you choose to do that you will find that the bible says nothing about the different races or about different skin colors. Evidently, God cares nothing about skin color. But He does care that people learn to get along with each other and to love each other. I found two words in the bible that will address racism: favoritism and partiality (or in the KJV it is “respect of persons”). Hence, we are not to show favoritism to people. We are to love and respect all people. Here are two verses to look at.
Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism 35 but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.
My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favoritism. 2 Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in. 3 If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” 4 have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?
Now let me say as a final conclusion that, according to the bible, the key to not being racist is not to somehow change your behavior, because we can’t do it on our own. We need a heart change—a new heart. And Jesus can do that for us. If we give our lives to Him, He will give you a new heart, and all things will be made new. 2 Corinthians says, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” That means that all racist tendencies will be gone! He will give you a new desire to love all people—whatever color.
If you haven’t heard of the great reset, it is what all the globalists are now talking about. It is all about global currency and global government, and is connected to the world economic forum. It is what Biden and Harris are pushing. They say that covid-19 has now provided this opportunity. Thus, it is a chance to reset everything. Reset what? Well, surprisingly, it is to reset to socialism and communism.
If that surprises you, listen to what Kamala Harris has said. She wants everyone to end up at the same place. Listen. She didn’t say that she wants everyone to get the same opportunity; she wants everyone to end up having the same amount of money. That’s communism! That’s total government control!
Let me back up. I’ve been listening to Curtis Bower. He seems to know what he is talking about. Here are some sketchy notes that will answer the question, what is going on today in America?
We are now experiencing a top-down revolution, backed by communist groups; rather, Democrat controlled communist groups.
We are experiencing an engineered coup where those who co-operate are termed useful idiots—like BLM, Antifa, and Biden.
Top Democrats are saying things like, “We have to burn down the Republican party.” Clearly many of the Dem’s want only one party—a Democrat party.
Big business is funding the Dem’s.
Big business and Democrats and Marxists are teaching our children to hate America.
Trump and his prosperity have been a disaster to the left, because the way they get power is to create chaos so they will have something to sell.
Everything (I mean everything) the Dem’s do is for an evil purpose, because they have been sold into communism.
Biden. Biden is one of those useful idiots. He is being used by the Dem’s to push the communist evil agenda. Biden cares only for himself and his family. He cares nothing about America and for what is right.
Fox news. There are a few good one in Fox news. But as of today, 90% of Fox have gone to the evil side, socialism and communism.
The press. One of the goals of communism is to influence the press. And they have done it!
The church. Communism is now out to shut down the church. They have recently been doing it, thanks to Covid-19. The communists are now praising Covid-19 and all the governors who have led the way.
The communists, who are now controlling the Dems, are seeking the destruction of western values—like the family and the church.
What must Christians do?
Christians must stand tall for the truth and righteousness.
Christians need to become involved more in government leadership in order to influence government.
Christians need to have hope that in the end they will be victorious, even if the nation falls.
Pray. Pray for the President and your governor to do the right thing. And pray for yourself and all Christians to be strong in the faith and believe God.
Christians need to keep their ears open to the truth. We no longer can get the truth from Fox news, but there are many other reliable news sources. Here are a few:
We saw the riots start just a few days after George Floyd was killed by Derek Chauvin, a bad cop in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It began by protest marches, protesting abusive policeman against black people. Almost immediately Black Lives Matter got involved and then also members of Antifa arrived from many locations and paid by rich people like George Soros and others. But BLM and Antifa are not the only groups involved. There are many others.
Where did these radical groups get their start? What is their belief system, and what motivates them? I suppose many are motivated by money, a lot of it. They work as professionals. And I suppose they are trained and educated too, but I don’t know where. I do know that they (the main trailblazers) have been around for a long time, as long as Communism has been around. They have had a plan for Russia, Cuba, China, North Korea, Vietnam, and the latest is Venezuela. And they also have a plan for the United States. And now it is happening. All the riots you see is part of it. It’s the tear down part. They plan to tear down everything: property, businesses, our system of law, our government, our families, everything. And they plan to replace it with socialism, or Communism.
And what do they say is their belief system? Well, they say it is righteousness and justice for all. But you need to know that it is not true justice. They call it social justice. It sounds good, but it’s not. It is far different than true justice. True justice is a justice for each individual, measured by God’s righteous standard, according to His righteous law. But social justice is measured according to the ideas of socialism. It is a system that distributes all wealth and property evenly to all people no matter how hard they work for it. And that redistribution is done by force; all people will be forced to conform to societies demands. There is no individualism. All are the same. And there is no family as we know it, and no personal God. All is done for the state and for the good of all. I suppose in some way it may sound good, at least unifying; but as we know from how it is in Communist countries, it just doesn’t work and is very depressive—without freedom or individualism.
But what about those who demonstrate, who do it because they truly do care about black lives and about building a less abusive police department and a safer neighborhood? Well, I think there are many in that group, but unfortunately, most of them are being deceived and used and overrun by the radicals in BLM and Antifa and other groups who are rioting only for the cause of Marxism. And they are using African Americans to do their dirty work. And sadly, all rioters in the end will find themselves enslaved to the devil and guilty.
I want to urge anyone reading this to just stop rioting and submit yourself to God and to His holy word. Let the past go. Learn to forgive and move on. Believe that the system (our constitution) we have is good and was established by God and good men and women who believed God. And if one of your people is killed, pray for that family and for the one who killed him, and then commit it to God and to our system of law. Never take revenge into your own hands. God said, “vengeance is mine.” In the end all who are guilty will be punished.
Not only is the organization BLM and its founders Marxists and Communists, there is something seriously wrong with their thinking. They are liars and delusional. The group BLM does not really care about black people’s lives; they are only using a few cases of police shootings to stir up their power base and build up their socialist agenda.
In BLM website they write: “
BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer.
However, there was no murder. It was found that the shooting was in self-defense. And you may note that in all of their writings they will always reject the law’s conclusions and insist on their own opinions without evidence.
In BLM website they write that their…
Mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.
But there is no white supremacy in this country—except for a few pockets of it here and there. I personally don’t see it anywhere.
In BLM website they say they…
Are working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically and intentionally targeted for demise.
That’s just a lie. Where do they get that? What world are they living in? There is something seriously wrong with their thinking, and by making those radical, lying statement they are not only deluding themselves but they are feeding misinformation to black people everywhere. In fact, by their lies they are making matters much worse for black people; they are bringing more fear into their lives, and it is not helpful to them at all. Most white people, including policemen, love black people, and all black people need to know that.
Most importantly, black people, and all people, need to know that God loves us; and if we know that, and come to experience His love, we will see all fear vanish from our lives.
In Bill O’Reilly’s Update Morning Edition, June 24, 2020, he gives us some valuable info about the founders of Black Lives Matter. The founders are three women: 39 yr old Alicia Garza, 36 yr old Patrisse Cullors, and 36 yr old Opal Tometi. They all are Marxists and they admit it and don’t hide it. Yet they want no publicity. What they want is to use racial unrest in the USA to gain power.
Now, as you may know, in Marxism the Federal government controls everything. There is no private property. The government even controls the family. On the Black Lives Matter website you will find this stated credence:
We disrupt the Western prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and villages that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mother’s, parents, and children are comfortable.
In other word, says O’Reilly, “They want the traditional family banished.”
Now I ask you, DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SUPPORT THIS ORGANIZATION – BLACK LIVES MATTER? It’s not a good group. No matter how good it sounds. They are very radical. They want to destroy the American family and America itself. You see so far what they are doing—all the rioting. They really care nothing for black lives. If they did, they would be more concerned for all the African Americans being killed in Chicago. But they say nothing and do nothing about that. It seems like all they are concerned about now is to defund the police and abolish them. Then you will see even more black lives being killed.
