What Went Wrong

What Went Wrong

They loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil (John 3:19, NLT).
Dear friends:
America was never perfect, far from it, and God has chastened us many times, such as with the Civil War. But there was always a pervasive respect throughout the nation for God's holy Word and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. What went wrong? Primarily during the past 50 years, militant anti-God forces, which have been active during and since the Continental Congress, have finally succeeded not only in rejecting our nation's biblical heritage and our traditional values, but in rewriting history and convincing our people, especially students, that we never had this wonderful heritage. How did this happen? Historians believe that the philosophical environment of the French Revolution spawned Karl Marx and his communistic and atheistic ideas. This in turn spawned several godless movements, including Lenin and Soviet state atheism and socialism, turning Russia from its 900-year Christian tradition into 73 years of bloody, godless totalitarianism, costing untold human suffering and tens of millions of lives.
Marx's and Lenin's ideas spread to America, taking root among academia and some labor leaders. Both the philosophies of educator John Dewey and Roger Baldwin, founder of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), have had a profound influence in mobilizing the anti-God forces. Dewey, of course, was the chief influence in modern "progressive" American education. His anti-God emphasis has resulted in the present decadence and disintegration of our entire educational system. Dewey was also one of the 34 signers of the original Humanist Manifesto. In 1961, the U.S. Supreme Court recognized humanism as a "religion." Baldwin worked for a Russian version of communism for America. The influence of Dewey, Baldwin, their followers and other kindred spirits has changed the character and nature of America. Such influence began to reach the top levels of government in mid-20th century and finally, in 1947, resulted in the infamous "separation of church and state" ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, and later decisions rejecting the God of our fathers in the public life and schools of America. A parallel anti-Christian philosophical influence has been that of anti-God secular humanism and existentialism. These beliefs provided the foundation for the radical hippie movement of the 1960s. From these roots arose some of the most threatening anti-Christ ideologies, which have destroyed much of the moral and spiritual moorings of America. The rejection of God brings darkness and death. But Jesus said, "I am the Light of the world. So if you follow me, you won't be stumbling through the darkness, for living light will flood your path" (John 8:12, LB).
