Twenty years ago if a Presidential candidate called himself a Socialist, he would have lasted in the race for about two minutes. These days we have two Democratic candidates tripping all over themselves to prove they are a bigger socialist than the other. Youth are flocking to the campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist who advocates dismantling Wall Street and the banking system and offering free college tuition for all people.
Youth have always trended more progressive until they age, but what we are seeing these days is alarming. Socialism is one small step from full blown Marxism where the government becomes the “god” you better never question. This morning we will explore the strange attraction youth these days have to socialism, and we will also check in with Doug Wakefield for his assessment on the shaky world financial systems many believe are about to be shaken to the core.
“Morality and the Judeo-Christian values, which the average millennial has learned so little about, mean nothing in their grand scheme of governing a society.” Dan Celia
Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4
[If] My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
