25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” – The 45 Goals of the Communist Takeover of America (Entered into the Congressional Record in 1963
Over 50 years ago, a portion of W. Cleon Skousen’s book The Naked Communist was entered into the congressional record. The book, “contains a distillation of more than a hundred books and treatises on communism, many written by Marxist authors,” according to the book’s description at Amazon.
The portion that was entered into the congressional record in 1963 has been labeled “The 45 Goals of the Communist Takeover of America.”
Right in the middle of those goals are two that deal with sexual immorality. Number 25 deals with pornography that comes through a variety of media and the other deal with the perversion of the natural order of sexuality, namely homosexuality.
Though I’m not a fan of Abraham Lincoln, he did state rightly:
“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”
Perhaps, Lincoln simply understood Marx and company all too well. The same could be true of concerning sexuality. If this generation is filled with a mindset of sexual perversion, what do you think the culture will become in the next?
Today, our children are subjected to many things in the culture. Among those are open access to pornography, which often times leads to the introduction of homosexuality as well. In fact, one writer wrote a decade ago, “…the largest group of consumers of online pornography is children between the ages of 12 and 17. Many Internet pornographers target children through ‘metatagging,’ using words like ‘Santa Claus,’ ‘Disneyland’ and ‘Teletubbies’ to draw children to their sites when they are searching for those terms on the Web.”
What’s even more disturbing is that there is no gateway to actually pass through to introduce children to pornographic images or videos. While some sites have employed age verification banners in an attempt to keep underage children out, others merely allow you to check a box stating you are over 18.
New measures are being promoted in Britain that may actually force you to verify your age. The question is, how? How do you do that? Can’t an underage person merely present themselves as a parent? Who would know the difference?
Even on seemingly innocent sites like sim sites, such as Second Life and Sims, there are adult sims that do little more than ask the person if they are over 18. In fact, a conversation was posted that allegedly took place from the site where that was all that was asked and the person had to present nothing in order to verify their age.
Let me state clearly that I am not against the internet, technology, fantasy or video games. All of those things can be useful and should be used for the glory of God, as Scott Buss has rightly pointed out.
All of this is to introduce a generation to sex, and that sex is presented outside the contexts of marriage. In other words, these means are demoralizing the culture and the next generation in order to enslave them via communism. In fact, the obsession with sex was a mindset established in the book Brave New World. People willingly enslaved themselves for their own pleasure.
The Bible warns us about sexual immorality and calls us to be sober minded and flee from it and abstain from it (1 Corinthians 6:18; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5).
First, we are told to not commit adultery (Exodus 20:14; Hebrews 13:4). We are also warned against fornication (Galatians 5:19-21; 1 Corinthians 7:2; 6:9-11, 18). Homosexuality is also warned against (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; 1 Timothy 1:10). Finally, it also warns against bestiality (Exodus 22:19; Leviticus 18:23; 20:15-16; Deuteronomy 27:21). Jesus even spoke about the fact that when a man lusts in his heart after another woman, he has committed adultery (Matthew 5:28), so we are to also guard our hearts.
What communism is, is nothing short of rebellion against God. Those who are promoting such things are simply teaching others to rebel against the Creator, and thus, are bringing judgment upon themselves and the nation.
