David Horowitz

Horowitz is founder of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Discover The Networks resource, and his new book, Big Agenda: President Trump's Plan to Save America, discusses President Trump's plan to get America back on track and the tremendous obstacles Marxist Socialists will throw in his way.

Reality is not always pleasant. But to deny the reality of the crisis we face in America and the professing Christian Church is foolishness. By every measurable standard we are a nation in moral decline.

Republicans are arguing among themselves about who has the best policies to fix the problems while Democrats have become obstructionists and have forged a national resistance against anything the Trump administration attempts to do.

Christians are also divided politically and morally on many issues including whether we should even engage in politics.

 

In our first segment this morning we talk with New York Times best selling author, and an icon of Conservatism, David Horowitz. Horowitz is founder of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Discover The Networks resource, and his new book, Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America, discusses President Trump’s plan to get America back on track, and the tremendous obstacles Marxist Socialists will throw in his way. From his Amazon page:

“Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election was more than a historic upset. It was the beginning of a major political, economic, and social revolution that will change America — and the world.

One of the nation’s foremost conservative commentators, New York Times bestselling author, and a mentor to many of Donald Trump’s key advisers, David Horowitz presents a White House battle plan to halt the Democrats’ march to extinguish the values America holds dear.

Big Agenda details President Trump’s likely moves, including his:

• First wave of executive orders — restoring Guantanamo, Keystone XL, nixing amnesty
• Surprising judicial appointments — Supreme Court and the federal judiciary
• Radical changes to federal rules & regulations — Obamacare, EPA overreach, and a New Deal for black America

With the White House and Senate in GOP hands, and a Supreme Court soon to follow, President Trump will have a greater opportunity than even Ronald Reagan had to reshape the American political landscape while securing the nation’s vital security interests abroad.

“No president since FDR and his famed ‘100 Days’ has the chance Donald Trump has,” Horowitz argues.
But he writes that the GOP and Trump must recognize they are not fighting policy ideas, but an ideology — a progressive one with a radical agenda to stop Trump in an effort to reduce America’s power and greatness.

 

SEGMENT TWO:

Let’s take a realistic look at the future of America and the Christian Church in our nation. (From the show transcript)

Horowitz’s website, Discover the Networks, is an invaluable resource to understand a couple important facts:

  • How well-organized and coordinated the radical left is.
  • How well financed and purposeful they are.
  • How strategic and committed they are to globalism and Marxism.

I want to take some time to have a frank discussion viewing the facts and circumstances our nation and the church faces.  Our job here at Stand Up For the Truth is not to be a cheerleader for a political ideology or party.  It is not to spin the news a certain way.  Our job is to point Christians to the truth of God’s Word and prepare us for the days ahead.

Over the past 30 years or so we have seen a significant shift in the political ideologies in our nation:

  • The “left” has moved from progressivism to liberalism to full blown Marxist Socialism.
  • The “right” has moved from fundamental Conservatism to a more moderate ideology.
  • Under this scenario the “Left” is winning.

Why is the radical left winning?  Here are some thoughts:

  • They are more committed and fanatical to their calling.
  • They have mastered communication and indoctrination, twisting facts and confusing people between opinions and facts.
  • They have taken over two critical institutions in our nation: Public education and media.
  • They have all the momentum on their side—the world governments support their globalist agenda.
  • They have mastered the art of obstruction.
  • Even when Conservatives gain control of government Socialists manage to slow down any conservative agenda.

There is a real and interesting parallel between the Socialist game plan and how Satan operates.  I am not saying all Progressive Socialists are pawns of Satan…but the methods used are quite similar.

  • Satan seems more committed to his agenda than many Christians are to God’s agenda.
  • He has mastered communication, twisting facts.
  • He has public education and media on his side, unconsciously doing his bidding.
  • He has momentum on his side with world governments unknowingly lining up behind him, paving the way for his puppet anti-Christ.

 

SCRIPTURES

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2

 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. 25 Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 1 Corinthians 9:24-25

Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. James 1:12
