Communism and Christian Faith

Book by Lester De Koster—Eerdmans, 158 pp. For a good many Americans, opposition to Communism rest upon a dislike of Khrushev’s shoe-pounding and a vague awareness that countries with a Communistic credo have been resisting the interests of the United States. Lester De Koster, Director of the Library at Calvin College and Seminary, holds such […]

The Far Right

Communism

A paper read at a combined “Young People’s Meeting.” As members of the Church of God, we have often derived an amount of comfort from the fact that the Bible was still the world’s best selling book. That day is gone, and in 1956 the Bible became the world’s SECOND best seller. The first place […]

Our Bomb Shelter

Fourteen years ago, on December 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the forces of the Empire of Japan.

Communism (7)

(continued)   Yes, although the secret controlling powers of Communism may wish to have Christ and His Church cast forever into eternal Hell (this is an actual modified statement of our present day secret Jewish Masonic rulers of the world.

Communism (7): Its Ultimate Failure

In my foregoing installments on this subject we have seen how the secret controlling powers of Communism, that is the Devil, and its “sacred cow,” Jew controlled Freemasonry, seek to dethrone the Triune God from the heavens, if possible, by their means of persecuting the true Church of Christ and their attempt to gain absolute […]

In the first two verses of the thirteenth chapter of Romans we read the following: “Let every soul be subject to the higher powers: for there is no power but of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God; and they shall receive to themselves damnation.” Communism and its secret controlling powers, […]

The dark councils of Communism’s secret controlling powers (that is the devil and his “sacred cow” Freemasonry) in bringing the “falling away” (II Thess. 2:3) are fivefold. The first is the banishment of religion from all public institutions, and from all departments of government; and as a mark of triumph of this policy, the removal […]

Democracy vs. Communism

Undoubtedly these words are very familiar to all of us.  Since Nazism has lost power, communism is our enemy. When we speak of communism and democracy we no longer mean that these represent two ideas of social life.  We refer to the power of each as modified and enforced by the two leading powers, United […]
