One evening a famous actor was asked to entertain at a large dinner party. A ripple of excitement ran through the crowd of prominent guests as he rose to speak. The actor chose to recite the Twenty-third Psalm, which he did eloquently. He finished the dramatic recitation in a thunder of applause, and the audience gave him a standing ovation. The next speaker was an elderly white-haired man, bowed and worn by long years of patient labor as a Christian missionary. "I too would like to recite the Shepherd's Psalm," he said quietly. Then, turning his face upward a little, and closing his eyes, he began... And, when he was through, there was not a sound. No word. No applause. And there was not a dry eye in the room. Afterward, a man said to the great actor, "I don't understand, you both spoke the same words.. Your presentation was perfect in every way. Yet, when he spoke in his halting, imperfect manner, people were moved too deeply for words. What made the difference?" "The answer is simple," the actor replied, "I know the Twenty-third Psalm; I know it well. But he knows the Shepherd.”
The Communist/[Internationalist] god is the government - the dictatorship of the proletariat. The communist/[internationalist] promise for the future is not eternal life with the Savior, but eternal dictatorship over all the world - a world of people "perfected" by Marxism. In such a world the authority of Caesar would be omnipresent, and your only escape would be death.
Any "Christian" who can accommodate and accept communism/[internationalism] is simply not a Christian. This is a conflict to the death, between absolutes. ... Christianity and communism/[internationalism] are enemies and cannot coexist. If you are loyal to one, you are a traitor to the other. Jesus said: "He that is not with me is against me." (Matthew 12:30). We cannot be with Jesus and fail to suppress His most bitter enemy! We must have and obey the absolutes that are the Laws of God. And when those absolutes are attacked by conspirators seeking to use the state to establish an atheistic dictatorship, we must choose between God and mammon. Peter told us that when Caesar demands of us that commitment which belongs to God alone, then we ought to obey God rather than man. ... The fact is that both the Old and New Testaments are full of admonishments for us to hate evil. Christ and his Apostles hated evil and refused to compromise with it. We must do the same. Jehu the prophet, chastised Jehoshaphat, asking: "Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the Lord? therefore is wrath upon thee from the Lord."--(II Chronicles 19:2).
But communism/[internationalism] rewards evil and punishes good. What kind of government was Paul talking about when he said in Romans 13:1-4: "For there is no power but of God... For rulers are not a terror to good works, but the evil"? Obviously, he wasn't talking about a communist/[internationalist] government! For Paul continued, saying of the good ruler that "he is the ministry of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."
A Christian is somebody who accepts Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour.
Certainly I do not use the term religion as a synonym for Christianity. Religions are the enemy of Christianity. "Religion" is an attempt by elitists to organize worship. Buddhism is a religion. Communism, for many, is a religion. Mere "religion" is based on works; Christianity is based on faith in Jesus Christ. To a Christian there are two types of Kingdoms: the earthly kingdom, or state, and the spiritual kingdom of God. The Lord our God sent His son Jesus Christ to establish an earthly spiritual kingdom. This spiritual kingdom is not composed of do-gooders, church goers, good-guys, anti-communists [Internationalists], or patriots, but of those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Some ill-informed, head-in-sand evangelicals say: "just preach the Gospel" openly. The Bible tells us to "do that which is good."-- (Romans 13:3). That means to defend our country, in war and piece; to participate. Preaching is not enough! Christians have ever to make the choice.
