In the booklet I have reprinted
The Red Betrayal of our Churches, by Elizabeth Dilling (30pp., booklet 3.00 + P&H—well worth reading and distributing), Dilling writes
This is what I have said for years. Liberalism, modernism, Arminianism, Sadduceeism, are all like the nicotine, "step down" program, to slowly (even over several generations*), wean weak-minded, weak-moralled Christians off the Word of God entirely.
[* The enemy is usually more dedicated at being patient to their slow, long-term goal, than Christians are at being faithful to God.]
Most Americans (and Europeans / Britons, etc.) are communists and don't even know it. If you told them so, they would get hot under the color and even assault you. But they are ignorant of what they believe, what Communism is, what Freedom is, and what true Theology is. They are pretty much ignorant of everything other than the superbowl, country music, hollywood, and the official version of any news story. Communism reveals itself through REGULATION and WELFARE (which is achieved through robbing those who are industrious and rewarding those who are lazy-ass good-for-nothings and other thieves content to enjoy a life of leisure at the expense of hard-working people). Like the taxation (mentioned below) and like the perversion of true Christianity (mentioned above) so also has Christendom been weaned off freedom and the politicians and preachers, like pimps and drug pushers, have gotten the populace hopelessly addicted to Communism and they don't even know it. Communism is regulation... it starts out slow and then like a black hole sucks in everything. Thomas Jefferson said, "A government large enough to supply all your needs is big enough to take everything you own". There is no free lunch. It violates the laws of reality. What goes up must come down. Unless your name is Jesus and you can break a few tiny loaves of bread and a few tiny dried fish and continue to multiply it by dividing it, then there is no free lunch or free ride and if you are eating or riding for free, then unless it is the result of someone elses benevolence and willingly giving it to you, then it is the result of theft and you are an accomplice.
For more details, see my edition of The Communist Manifesto (1848) [Originally titled: “Manifest of the Communist Party”] by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels (56pp.) — with Illustrated Historical Introduction — & A Comparison of the 10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto, “Democracy,” and Marxist, Unconstitutional U.S. Law, with the Bill of Rights / the 10 Amendments to the Constitution and the 10 Commandments - also containing the Declaration of Independence, Common Law Citations, Court Rulings and Quotes on Freedom, added by Robert Alan Balaicius; Including photos, background information, and photos of these and more: Karl Marx, Philips Corporation family, Adam Weishaupt, Bernard Lazare, Winston Churchill, Dr. Oscar Levy, Maurice Samuel, Marcus Eil Ravage, Samuel Roth, Vladimir Lenin, David Ben-Gurion, Rabbi Stephen Wise, Harry Waton, Friedrich Engels, Moses Hess, Theodore Herzl, Jacob Schiff, Judah P.

Also exposes the Marxist roots of the modern banking conspiracy and so-called "National Debt" and government's illegal and over-spending, and those who opposed it: quotes by Jackson, Jefferson, Madison, as well as several U.S. Presidents who spoke out against it and tried to stop it and were assassinated (Lincoln, Garrison, Kennedy).
Communism is REGULATION. Freedom is... well... FREEDOM. Freedom to do whatever you please as long as it does not violate the Law of God and as long as it does not truly injure someone else (and calling someone a name or not inviting them to your party or into your house or business is not an injury).
And concerning the below... if there is supposed to be a separation of the church and state (which is nowhere so stated in the Constitution), the state therefore has no authority to regulate the church; they are to be separate powers.
The term Religion when used by the Puritans and our Founders referred solely to Christianity, the only true religion. Congress not making any law respecting religion referred to the Federal government not recognizing one DENOMINATION of Christianity over the other; HOWEVER, that did NOT mean that the individual states could not do so. The U.S. Constitution was NEVER meant to "replace" the individual State Constitutions, the States were NEVER intended to change to please a federal entity.

"The government will haul ministers of the Gospel into court on alleged tax irregularities and challenge ministerial authority of independent ministers of the Gospel. The government will get rid of independent ministers, churches, and associations, and a State church will be set up."
