I recently heard of a former FBI agent named Cleon Skousen who wrote a book called, “Naked Communism”, in 1958. He laid out the goals of communism that were eventually added into the Congressional Records on Jan. 10th, 1963 (appendix A34 – A35). Interestingly, quite a few of those goals seem to be in today’s news and events. See how many you can check off:

Donald Trump tells Kevin where the lobby is.

“He does not live in men’s hearts one day of the year, but in all days of the year. You have chosen not to seek Him in your heart. Therefore, you will come with me and seek Him in the hearts of men of goodwill.” 
A Christmas Carol, 1951, with Alistair Sim.

The holiday decorations are put away, except for the greenery, the sprigs of fresh spruce, pine cones, and red berries. I have to leave a few things to overcome the shock of no more sparkling gold lights, glittery ornaments, decorated lamp post, even “a candle in the window”. My favorite holiday is tucked away for another year. So I am counting down, only 359 days til Christmas!

The week of Easter 2019 was difficult, personally and as a Christian. I lost my mother in law, our last remaining parent. Notre Dame caught fire and burned, doing massive damage. The small Christian community of Sri Lanka suffered terrorist attacks, resulting in hundreds of deaths. Another shooting at a Jewish synagogue in California. I […]

While reading one book, another book was mentioned within its pages called “The Judgement of the Nations” by Christopher Dawson, copyright, 1942. I’d never heard of him. Here’s an excerpt: “A hundred years is a relatively short period. Yet the last hundred years have changed human life more completely than any period in the history […]

@susanquinn recently featured a little story with a big heart, about a Methodist school teacher in Florida who took her grade school students on a walk, to commemorate the history of the Jews who wandered for 40 years in the desert, before they reached the promised land. http://ricochet.com/592875/israelite-walk-in-bartow-florida/#comment-4406495 It isn’t news that antisemitism is alive […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Who Was Renia Spiegel?

 

“Hear, O Israel, Save Us” “Oh God Almighty! Help us! Take care of us, give us your blessing.” 

Last week I was given a copy of the November issue of Smithsonian magazine, featuring a story on a young Jewish girl in Poland named Renia Spiegel. She created a diary right before she unknowingly entered Hell, as the horrors of the Holocaust infiltrated her innocent world. It’s a miracle that this diary survived at all if you read how it came to be found, and how it traveled over 70 years to become a powerfully troubled voice once again in 2018. The Smithsonian translated it in its entirety.

Is the American public becoming less religious? “Yes,” says the latest research.

Over the Thanksgiving Holiday, a poll making headlines across cable networks (love those) said mainly the new generations — Millennials and Snowflakes — are rejecting the Christian faith. It was reported that they rated the importance of faith around 20 percent, with money, success, and family at the top. Was this a misleading headline? Let’s look further…

I remember at President Bush’s Inauguration, he said “Where dangers gather, angels ride on the wind”. For some reason, I remember I felt a chill when I heard that line. It was the first time I voted for a Republican. It had just been a long, contentious and deeply divided election process. Then, less than […]
