I wrote some of the following in response to some outlandish “Christian” claims alleging there is a decades old Communist conspiracy to take over America.
1) America is not becoming and will not become “communist” – the threat and fear of communism is a hangover dating back to McCarthyism.
2) Socialism and communism are no more evil than capitalism. They are all man’s political creations created as alternatives to God’s Kingship. All raise some men to places or power at the expense of others. All call for trust in man instead of God.
3) Like all previous empires and superpowers, America will eventually fall from its position of power. It will have nothing to do with a communist takeover and it will NOT mean last days prophecies are being fulfilled. It will just be a continuation of what has happened throughout history.
The British Empire lasted only around 100 years. Communist Russia lasted only 70. America has been a dominating “superpower” since WWII – again almost 70 years, around the same time period as Communist China. These periods are VERY short – yet we seem to think these powers have always been here, will always be here and maybe even SHOULD always be here.
However, there is only ONE eternal Kingdom and that is GOD’S.
