Censorship and Fascism do not happen overnight. It is a slow process starting from a faulty premise that somehow people have a “right” to not be offended. It then grows into something very ugly; a censorship where you risk your freedom – and maybe even your life – when you dare state an opinion that offends someone in power.
Adolph Hitler started his rise to power by convincing Germans they were special. The German people heard the call to national pride, empowered Hitler to return them to the so-called glory years, giving up freedoms including the right to free speech. In a few short years Nazi Germany grew into an evil, oppressive state that murdered millions who did not fit into their Utopian dream.
But, not to worry. Surely it could never happen in the land of the free and the home of the brave – could it? Well, think again because the early seeds of Fascism are beginning to germinate right under our noses.
This morning, Eric Barger of Take a Stand Ministries joins us. Eric also works with Jan Markell and they know first hand about the censorship of Christians who speak the truth. Jan’s entire YouTube account was deleted without warning, but as of Monday, all of the videos were back on line. We discuss how the only strand of Christianity that may be permitted free speech in the coming years is the liberal, mushy, non-offensive Emergent Christianity that has infiltrated the church. They are winning the hearts of our youth at an alarming rate. Have you heard anyone suggest that the Emergent Church is dead? Think again because it is being repackaged and sold as mainstream Christianity–maybe even in your own church.
