Defining the Terms of Cultural Marxism

Child Protection League   Posted at the Child Protection League: Much of the language being used today in schools, the workplace, and culture is intentionally deceptive. A whole vocabulary is in use that masks a politicized Culture War agenda. Familiar words have been redefined, and new words are intentionally misleading. To understand and expose the terms of Cultural Marxism and to be effective, we must “decode” the meanings of common terminology. This dictionary of Cultural Marxist terms and their meanings, Defining the Terms of Cultural Marxism , is available on our website as a printable, shareable, and downloadable PDF. Bring it with you the next time you’re in a discussion about Social Emotional Learning, Critical Race Theory, equity, diversity, inclusion, social justice, cultural competency, etc. The following are a few of those terms. The entire list is on our website titled Defining the Terms of Cultural Marxism . Marxism The worldview promoted by Karl Marx which asserts that

How to Detect an Abusive Guy Before Tying the Knot

 By Wes Bredenhof Knowledge is power and, when it comes to relationships, one of the most important bits of knowledge is how to detect an abuser before you marry one. In far too many cases, abusers hoodwink their prospective spouses during courtship. But this usually happens because the prospects/future victims don’t know what to look for. I hope this post will help. A few important points beforehand: I have adapted this list of clues from a pamphlet produced by WestCASA (Western Region Against Sexual Assault) here in Australia. I have adapted it for a church-going audience. The list is not exhaustive and it’s important to realize that some abusers can’t be detected beforehand. Because domestic abuse is usually perpetrated by men, I’m going to use masculine pronouns. This isn’t to say that women can’t be or aren’t abusive. These are important things to reflect on as early as possible in the relationship. As the original pamphlet states: “Collect this information over at least 2-4 month

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the Creation Ordinance

 By Al Baker - Posted at Forget None of His Benefits: 'God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them.' – Genesis 1:27 I don’t know much about Brazilian jiu-jitsu. I have a nephew who has competed for many years and has won many awards, but that’s the extent of my knowledge of the sport. Maybe you don’t much about it either. If so, then here’s a definition. “Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport based on grappling, ground fighting, and submission holds. BBJ approaches self-defense by emphasizing taking an opponent to the ground, gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force them into submission through joint locks or chokeholds.” [1] Pretty intense stuff, don’t you think? On October 21 transgender competitor Corissa Griffith, a man who calls himself a woman, took home four gold medals at a tournament in Georgia in which “she” competed against women who were born women.

Culture Watch: 'On Mike Johnson'

 By Bill Muehlenberg Published November 1, 2023 On the new Speaker of the House: If you follow American politics, you will know that a new Speaker of the House has recently been voted in. Republican Representative from Louisiana Mike Johnson became the 56th Speaker. This follows several weeks of stalemate after Kevin McCarthy from California was ousted from the position. Johnson was unanimously elected by the 220 Republicans in the House. In case you are not up on what the role of the Speaker is, one site puts it this way: The Speaker of the House acts as the leader of the U.S. House of Representatives. Every two years, the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives vote on the first day of each new Congress. Both of the major political parties nominate one candidate for the position of Speaker. The candidate from the majority party usually wins. The Speaker of the House is responsible for administering the oath of office to the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives, giving Me

The Curse of Cowardice

By Rev. Dewey Roberts - Posted at Vanguard Presbyterian Church: On May 8, 1758, Samuel Davies preached to the militia being mustered in Hanover county, Virginia as a result of the French and Indian War (1755-1763). He had three years earlier preached a similar recruiting sermon at the raising of an independent militia for CPT Overton, the first such militia raised in response to the defeat of General Edward Braddock at Fort Duquesne, near modern-day Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. On this latest occasion, Davies took Jeremiah 48:10 as his text, “Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully; and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood” (KJV) for his sermon, “The Curse of Cowardice.” As a result of Davies’ message, the quota for the company was raised immediately and many would be volunteers were regrettably turned away. Following that sermon, Davies attempted to retire to Shelton’s Tavern, across the road from the Hanover Courthouse where he had just preached. The sol


 Posted at Reformation Scotland: Published October 26, 2023 Songs written thousands of years ago take on renewed relevance as we respond to the recent outbreak of vicious hatred in the Middle East. Psalm 87 was written in a time of despondency as the sheer scale of the necessary rebuilding effort sank in, complicated by the hostility of the surrounding enemies and the weakened condition of the people. However, in his commentary on this psalm, David Dickson identifies reasons to take comfort and be encouraged even in the midst of this grim situation. People from Egypt, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon as well as Israel will be spiritually reborn into the family of the covenant Lord, bringing them into a position of the highest honour as well as eternal safety, and displaying the Lord’s wonderful love and power. The promise that He will do this in His own time gives us hope for solid peace eventually. When God loosed the captivity of the Jews by Cyrus, few of them returned from Babylon. The work

Breakpoint: 'Age of Consent in an Age of Discontent'

 By John Stonestreet and Jared Eckert In a win for LGBTQ, new bill places agents of the state between parents and children as young as 12 years old. Published October 27, 2023 A new California law signed by Governor Newsom on October 7 will enable strangers to lead children 12 and older on matters of mental health and their home life without requiring any parental consent. It’s a bizarre irony for a state that’s also suing the corporation Meta for harming children under age 13 through its social media platforms, based on the assumption that children are too vulnerable to resist the effects of social media. Evidently, children can’t resist their phones, but they should be able to make massive decisions about their minds, bodies, and family relationships without their parents’ consent. The new law, Assembly Bill 665 , expands an existing law that only applied to minors aged 12 and older with private health insurance. The new law includes minors aged 12 and older who are covered by publ

Baptist Press: 42 states, D.C. sue Meta on accusations of harming children, teens

By Diana Chandler Published October 25, 2023 SAN FRANCISCO (BP) — Meta’s social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram intentionally target children and teens with features that harm mental health, attorneys general in 42 states and Washington D.C. said in lawsuits Oct. 24. A group of 33 states including California, New York, Pennsylvania and Illinois filed a federal lawsuit jointly in the Northern District of California, while nine states and Washington D.C. filed individually, according to press releases and court filings. Depression, anxiety, insomnia, body dysmorphia, unhealthy prolonged use of sites, and interferences with education and daily life are alleged results of Meta’s manipulative algorithms and other features targeting youth as their brains are still developing. Meta “has profoundly altered the psychological and social realities of a generation of young Americans,” the joint lawsuit alleges. “Meta has harnessed powerful and unprecedented technologies to entice,

Student Dorcas Adedayo Adekanola is still missing after Kaduna State University personnel abducted her and forced her to convert to Islam.  (Campus Watch Mission)  Posted at Morning Star News: University aiding in forcible Islamization, watchdog group says. Published October 25, 2023 ABUJA, Nigeria ( Morning Star News ) – Personnel of Kaduna State University have aided in the kidnapping and forcible conversion to Islam of a Christian student, according to a campus watchdog group.

The Slow Death of the Christian West

By Pastor Benjamin Glaser - Posted at  Thoughts From Parson Farms: How Paganism Has Re-Emerged Through the Failure of the Church to Be Faithful Excerpt: "In our prayer and worship help today we are going to talk about the world in which we live today and how the same men tasked with building up have been working to destroy and tear down. We are now experiencing the results of this evil. In some sense the reappearance of the strong gods, the pagan culture we left a millennia or more ago is all a result of men abandoning their responsibilities in accordance with the Fifth Commandment. Everything comes back to the law of God, and whether society will bow their knee to Christ or seek to be their own god. Psalm 2 and other passages warn us as to the consequences of such. I get calls/texts regularly from folks both within and outside the congregation about why we see such rampant licentiousness and sin in the world today. On one hand the earth has been so since the days of Adam’s fall.
