Communist Goals for America
“You Americans are so gullible…You won’t accept Communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses.”
— Khrushschev, 1959
In an attempted to warn the nation, the Democrat Congressman from Florida, Albert S. Herlong, Jr., read into the U.S Congressional Record, January 10, 1963, the list of Communist goals for America (Vol 109, 88th Congress, 1st Session, Appendix, pp. A34–A35).
Communist goals included:
“Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of ‘separation of church and state’…
Discredit American culture … Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and divorce …”
Herlong continued the list of Communist goals…

Tradition – Part 2
Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
— Matthew 5:15
With the Edict of Thessalonica in A.D. 380, Nicaean Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire. Heretical views had cropped up from nearly the very beginning, and Paul was already combatting some of these incorrect ideas in the first century. Church leaders did not resort to violence in those early years, even though some heretical traditions had serious unbiblical beliefs. Cathars, for instance, believed in reincarnation and the transmigration of the soul. Manichaeism and Catharism were both forms of Gnostic dualism, which taught the existence of both a good God and a bad God. They regarded the physical body as evil and the spirit alone as good, which meant their version of Jesus was evil while in His physical body. Gnostics taught that salvation was obtained by knowledge (gnosis) rather than the simple sacrifice of Christ. Other heresies were Priscillism and Donatism, which were dedicated to salvation by works. These focused on extreme asceticism or perfection — what Paul calls “will worship” in Colossians 2:23.

Everything in life is “Father-filtered”. Chuck used to say that all the time. Sometimes I remember the words of Jesus in the book of John chapters 14–17 about his love for us or Matthew 6:25 about how not to worry but often, I have to confess, I don’t. Paul even reemphasizes this concept of God being for us and life being “Father-filtered” in Romans 8:28 saying, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Despite the frequency of God’s reminder of his love for us, I find these easy to read, but in the darkness of trials, hard to let sink in.
Then there are days on the other end of the spectrum that everything is sunshine, and I exclaim, “Thank goodness God is still in the miracle working business!” A weekly faith builder for the team and I is the K-house staff prayer time. We cover every request that is sent to the ministry every Wednesday morning. We get many kinds of requests and opportunities to pray for our ministry supporters and friends. We actively practice walking out our faith with an active and living God, which is the ultimate adventure of life. How can we pray for you? (khouse.org/email/)
