What God do you believe in? This question was posed, more or less, in a classic thriller I watched while writing Part II of this series. The 1949 movie was called “The Third Man,” which starred Orson Welles as the villain.
There is a strong proverb from Solomon that says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” That’s Proverbs 18:21. And that was said about 3,000 years ago.
The more questions I am asked about my life, the more I find myself lying. They aren't blatant lies, but rather omissions of a complete detailed truth. In regard to the negative sides of our lives, no one likes to express every detail, so we lie or omit.
Good and evil. In the previous article, I believe I stated my case of what my concept of good and evil is not rather clearly. There are, I am certain, plenty of those who disagreed with my belief that God is the reason why morality not only exists, but is also objective.
Good and evil. I think it easier for me to discuss what my concept of good and evil is not, before approaching the subject of what my concept of good and evil is.
What I do worry about now is if those who had never considered the possibility of falling into such a fateful ideology would know when they had fallen into it.
Mentioning Sanders and the major success he experienced in his campaign greatly suggests that it is not just the Millennials who are believers in Communism’s closest ally, Socialism.
There is the perception of systemic oppression that continues to be perpetuated upon the American public. The arrogant, who primarily include politicians, activists, and intellectuals, continue to besiege individuals and groups with the idea of “class struggle”.
Communism was preached to be about one thing: class struggle. It would be foolish to say that there was no class struggle in Russia at the time of the Revolution. It would be foolish to suggest that class struggle does not exist today globally and in America.
I like to think that when the vast majority of Americans consider Communism, they do not see it in a kind light. They do not think of it as a method to reaching unity and economic equality. Yet for some reason, The New York Times seems to be doing just that.
