    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

The Left And Eugenics


Written by Jim O’Neill:

[T]he Nazis were a left-wing party, and Hitler was a Far-Left revolutionary of the first order. The Left will, of course, deny this. The Far-Left’s modus operandi includes taking anything that they decide is no longer desirable, and foisting it upon the right-wing, whenever possible.

We really must insist that the left-wing take back their “gift” of swastikas and jackboots. It’s theirs, it has always been theirs, and we refuse to be hung with their albatross any longer.

In order to understand the current attraction of euthanasia and eugenics to the Obama Administration, we need to explore some additional whitewashed left-wing history. There’s no need to parse apart the various elements of Obama-Care, in order to ferret out references to government endorsed euthanasia. Simply look at the past history of the Left—check out their record.

The left-wing have historically been passionate supporters of eugenics. I’m not just talking about Hitler and his “Death Squads,” I’m talking about the left-wing’s Progressive Party, right here in the USA.

It was only after WWII, and Hitler’s atrocities, that the left-wing’s love for eugenics went underground. They’ve only lately felt confident enough to bring it back out in the open air.

This quote is from Jonah Goldberg’s book “Liberal Fascism,” “In 1934, when the [German] National Socialist government had sterilized over fifty thousand “unfit” Germans, a frustrated American eugenicist exclaimed, “The Germans are beating us at our own game.” Drats.

Hitler took notes from the American Left concerning eugenics. And the people who most vociferously espoused eugenics were the left-wing Progressives. Eugenics was a central plank in the left-wing Progressive platform. The left-wing will deny this, but as we know, they lie.

Roger Sherman On The Christian Faith

Roger Sherman

Roger Sherman was a signer of The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution. He is often referred to as the “Master Builder of The Constitution. He was also one of the framers of The Bill of Rights and a US Senator. He spoke in the following terms of his Christian faith:

“God commands all men everywhere to repent. He also commands them to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and has assured us that all who do repent and believe shall be saved… [G]od… has absolutely promised to bestow them on all these who are willing to accept them on the terms of the Gospel – that is, in a way of free grace through the atonement. “Ask and ye shall receive [John 16:24]. Whosoever will, let him come and take of the waters of life freely [Revelation 22:17]. Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out” [John 6:37].”

“[I]t is the duty of all to acknowledge that the Divine Law which requires us to love God with all our heart and our neighbor as ourselves, on pain of eternal damnation, is Holy, just, and good. . . . The revealed law of God is the rule of our duty.”

“True Christians are assured that no temptation (or trial) shall happen to them but what they shall be enabled to bear; and that the grace of Christ shall be sufficient for them.”

The Pursuit Of Power

Quoting columnist David Limbaugh:

“The most important thing to understand about the Democrats’ domestic agenda is that they care more about establishing government control over our lives than they do about the stated policy goals of their proposals. It’s true of their fraudulently named stimulus packages, their cap-and-tax scheme and especially their universal health care plans. With all of these programs and more, their driving aim is not only to acquire power for the sake of acquiring it but also to use government to impose their values on us and, effectively, destroy our personal liberties. The subject of liberty — the very impetus for the founding of this nation — is rarely mentioned in the public debate.”

The Coming Of The Son Of God

John Piper

Quoting John Piper:

The coming of the eternal Son of God into the world as the God-Man, Jesus Christ, is a fact of history. But thousands of Americans fill out Gallup Poll religious surveys that they believe this fact but then live just like everybody else. They have the same anxieties that good things will be lost and the same frustrations that crummy things can’t be changed. Evidently there is not much power in giving right answers on religious surveys about historical facts.

That’s because the coming of the Son of God into the world is so much more than a historical fact. It was a message of hope sent by God to teenagers and single parents and crabby husbands and sullen wives and overweight women and impotent men and retarded neighbors and homosexuals and preachers and lovers and you. And since the Son of God lived, died, rose, reigns, and is coming again, God’s message through him is more than a historical fact. It is a Christmas gift to you . . . from the voice of the living God. Thus says the Lord: the meaning of Christmas is that what is good and precious in your life need never be lost, and what is evil and undesirable in your life can be changed. The fears that the few good things that make you happy are slipping through your fingers, and the frustrations that the bad things you hate about yourself or your situation can’t be changed—these fears and these frustrations are what Christmas came to destroy. It is God’s message of hope . . . that what is good need never be lost and what is bad can be changed.
