We Are At War

I am writing this on the first day when same-sex ‘marriages’ become legal in the UK.  I have been involved to some extent in the debate which has been taking place on the blogs of the Telegraph newspaper (www.telegraph.co.uk) and I would like to quote a couple of people.

Poster Robertheenan said

“This is a disgusting episode in history of civilisation. Marriage has been hijacked by sodomites. I got nothing against homosexuals and whatever they do behind closed doors but they seem adamant in thrusting their stuff on the rest of society.

“There is an evil cultural marxist agenda going on in the west. Why on earth would the leaders of France, UK and USA just around the same time call for legalising homosexual marriages?

“Notice how there is also a cultural imperialism going on in thrusting homosexuality as something cool and something to be proud off to other countries whether its in Africa, Russia or elsewhere.

“The MSM are very much in promoting this agenda. When Putin banned the promotion of homosexuality to under 18’s in Russia, notice how much the celebs, media, politcians etc within the West made such a uproar regarding it.

“Unfortunately there is absolutely no interest in promoting traditional marriage (man and wife) and traditional families (man and woman as husband and wife and children).

“Children at a young age being bombarded with message of homosexuality being cool and fun would probably end up experimenting in it. Its social engineering and cultural imperialism that is going on and its dangerous”

And SpeedofDark responded by putting these changes into poilitical context with

“It is part of the Frankfurt School agenda which was created to aid communism spread. It was originally based in Germany but fled to the USA when Hitler came to power. From then to the early 60’s it embedded itself in the US college and University system. It was, in fact, responsible for the counter culture revoluton of the 60’s( which most of the youth at that time saw as liberating from the admittedly authoritarian, and moral governance that existed. This is not the stuff of conspiracy theories but stark fact. Marcuse was one of the leading lights of this operation and his frank and open confessions are all on the youtubel The aim was to change forever the long establshed judao-christian heritage. To give you further insight (assuming like most people you are now aware of all this) I show below the key points of the Frankfurt School agenda. Please, then, if you wish compare those leading points with the actions of the labour governments of 1997 – 2010…..a close match, indeed. But this agenda is shared by the 3 parties – we live in a 3 party, 0ne party state of cultural marxists.

“The final aim of the Frankfurt School was to make the West so corrupt it “will stink”

“The School included among its members the 1960s guru of the New Left Herbert Marcuse (denounced by Pope Paul VI for his theory of liberation which ‘opens the way for licence cloaked as liberty’), Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno, the popular writer Erich Fromm, Leo Lowenthal, and Jurgen Habermas – possibly the School’s most influential representative.

“Basically, the Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief – or even the hope of belief – that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution. Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the oppressive’ order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus—‘continuing the work of the Western Marxists by other means’ as one of their members noted.

“To further the advance of their ‘quiet’ cultural revolution – but giving us no ideas about their plans for the future – the School recommended (among other things):

1. The creation of racism offences.
2. Continual change to create confusion
3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority
5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.
6. The promotion of excessive drinking
7. Emptying of churches
8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime
9. Dependency on the state or state benefits
10. Control and dumbing down of media
11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family

“One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud’s idea of ‘pansexualism’ – the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:

• attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children.
• abolish differences in the education of boys and girls
• abolish all forms of male dominance – hence the presence of women in the armed forces
• declare women to be an ‘oppressed class’ and men as ‘oppressors’

“Munzenberg summed up the Frankfurt School’s long-term operation thus: ‘We will make the West so corrupt that it stinks.’

“The School believed there were two types of revolution: (a) political and (b) cultural. Cultural revolution demolishes from within. ‘Modern forms of subjection are marked by mildness’. They saw it as a long-term project and kept their sights clearly focused on the family, education, media, sex and popular culture.”

Normally, I use this blog to discuss matters of predominantly Christian concern, This is a matter where the political establishment are acting in such a way as to cause a weakening of the church, either deliberately or as, Marx described them, by ‘useful idiots’.

I put it to all who read this that the Christians need to learn how to fight spiritual warfare,  We need to learn fast. 

The first thing we all need to remember is that an army marches on its stomach.  You need feeding.  If your church does not have bible study group, then start one.  With this spiritual environment, I would recommend starting with the Book of  Acts, and alongside it a good book for helping the studies is “Opening Up Acts” by John Michael Wong, published by Day One Publications of Leominster.  If you watch the You Tube videos about selection for the SAS, you will hear time and again that the applicant needs energy and the best way to get it isto eat as big a breakfast as he can.  Use Acts as your spiritual breakfast.  Eat Well!

About UK Fred

A Christian who cares that the church in Britain conforms to societal demands, rather than transforms society. I am particularly concerned with the lack of support for marriage and the acceptance of divorce in the church. I also care that the body politic in Britain seems to be corrupt and in need of a good shake-up.

    Hi, Fred. Their goal was to break down society so they could build their utopia on their model. But of course, there was a spiritual power motivating that philosophy and agenda, and its goal was different — to crush Christians. Not merely to break their influence or silence them, but to destroy. The agenda will press on. Yes, we are at war.

    But our enemy is not flesh and blood, and the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but spiritual. And the war is nothing new. It’s just that the enemy has already won much ground, having taught Christians to love pleasure and prosperity too much, having lulled us into complacency while he was undermining our defences and building an environment that would be conducive to building hatred against us.

    Now, having laid the groundwork, he is going for the jugular.

    It’s a good thing our Lord is stronger than the adversary, but we’d better stay close to Him.

    • UK Fred says:

      Agreed all the way, Jon.

      Interestingly the tactics are tactics that Have been used ever since Adam and Eve, spreading doubt and confusion,and trying to undermine God’s authority. If the enemy is going for the jugular, we need to learn the lessons of history that God wants to remind us about, and I believe Acts is a useful place to start. I pray for all Christians, especially in the West, to be motivated by Our Lord to get to know Him better.

    I’ve become increasingly aware of the militant quality of the homosexual message and agenda — a kind of in-my-face taunt and confrontiveness that’s sometimes cowed me into silence. Now recently MSN or some internet media source I can’t exactly recall made a point about “quiet” coming-out gays, using Anderson Cooper as an example of someone who didn’t make a big deal about his orientation and has not been inflammatory. The ‘article’ cited other known personalities, and the message is one of affable normalcy (normalcy being the bigger point, to me, than like-ability). Indeed, it’s hard not to like Anderson Cooper, by way of example, as he comes across as professional, well-spoken and unbiased in news reporting. But it’s that first type of “voice” that is much more common to me, and even growing. I agree that Christians have been under attack. And I agree this is spiritual warfare. And I agree that I’m lazy about fighting. When I was in college I took on all sorts of anti-Christian messages and groups–until I ran into Feminism, stepped out into the meadow with my sword and got burned crispy with fire from head to toe. Ran back into the woods and thought, Wow what the heck was that and I don’t know how to answer it. I don’t think very many Christian teachers have ever answered the assertions of Feminism, partly because many don’t consider it worth doing so (such a mistake imho). I’ve thought about writing a long article about many claims, but I wish a better Christian than I would have stepped up at the time when it almost took me under. Actually, the stuff matters less and less to me now.

    I wish I saw things as clearly as you do, Fred. I find the ‘ideologies’, if that’s not the wrong word, presented over the years to be confusing. Your comments sounded as if from top-to-bottom, decades ago until now, changes in western society were part of a systematic assault on Christianity itself–and on traditional ways of living as being synonymous with Christianity. If that is completely true, then it can only be authored and directed by Satan himself, because I don’t think all the people along the way may have seen themselves, or were even consciously choosing to put themselves into some epic attack. For instance, I am an army veteran, but I didn’t enlist with any conscious thought about emasculating men nor any competitiveness. I just couldn’t think of a better way to leave home. And, I am not for divorce… I have been one who will say to an unhappy married person that s/he should stick it out, get some help, not give up and look to God for repair. But maybe some year back in the ’50’s, there was a battered woman terrified of her abusive husband who could easily kill her at any time and leave her children motherless, and there was some counselor somewhere who said, Leave him, leave him… and the leaving saved her life. Or there was some child of divorce that felt ashamed or was truly looked down upon, and some adult nurtured him along into rising above a stigma and finding direction in school and in the world. Would you have not wanted those things to happen for those people? Should their brokenness have simply been accepted as casualties of war? Some of these perspectives have useful and sensible and good aspects to them, even perhaps love. Or would you say I am simply being duped to think that in any measure?

    I’m sorry my comment is so long.

  3. UK Fred says:

    Availeth, your comment is very welcome,and I have no objection to its length because you did have something to say.

    Many of the assertions of the Godless philosophies have not been answered well from a Christian standpoint, and were left unanswered during the 50’s, 60’s and70’s when they were new and exciting and swept all the idealistic youngsters like me along with them. Some of them have still not been properly answered, and even worse,some Christians have absorbed the ideologies without even recognising the fact.

    If I go back to the 1960’s, when I was (mainly) in my teens, divorce was seen as something shocking, but I can remember when a woman was being beaten up by her husband, the other men in the area dragged him off her and held him until the police arrived. I do not know what had happened prior to the fight starting, but I do know that the couple separated shortly afterwards. We are told in Scripture (Malachi2 vv15 and 16) So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. 16 “I hate divorce,” says the LORD God of Israel, “and I hate a man’s covering himself with violence as well as with his garment,” says the LORD Almighty. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith.

    We often hear the quotation “I hate divorce” says the LORD but forget that equally the LORD hates a man covering himself with violence as well as with his garment. Far better that the two people learn to communicate so that their conflict can be resolved before it reaches the stage of physical violence but to my untrained mind, the one sin is treated the same as the other.

    Please note that God never says “I hate the divorcee” or “I hate the child brought up in a broken family” and despite hating divorce, God says that He sent Judah away with a certificate of divorce because Judah had been unfaithful and had followed after other Gods.

    Also in the 1960’s, the local church had to build a new building,because the building it had was too small, holding only 300. The new church held 600 andmostweeksitwaspretty much full. I last went there when my parents were still alive, so that would have been in the 1980’s or early 1990’s. After the children left for Sunday School, there were about 18 people there, two of us visitors and another four from one family. That aspect of the enemy strategy has been successful. The churches have been emptied.
