Lions 700, Christians 0: What Marx Got Right -- and What the "Religious" Get Wrong

By Rick Pearcey • March 6, 2018, 12:26 PM

I committed strategic analysis on my Facebook page yesterday. Here's proof:

Why do some people (who call themselves Christians, and I suppose at some time understood they're still human) insist on living inside a "spiritual" closet the Biblical information knows nothing about?

The knowable and publicly actionable Creator gives us fields, bodies, minds. He creates a world, not a closet.

No rock, plant, dog or human is supposed to live in there.

Marx said, "The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it." This emphasis is partly why the cultural Marxists are winning.

Despite having an inhumane philosophy, Marxists etc. nevertheless are out there changing the world. Their "change" encompasses people AND structures.

In contrast, many Christians are stuck inside their spiritual closets. There is much activity in there. And some of it is very good. But by and large too many are neglecting the still-operative Creator-endowed human-calling to change the world.

So instead of changing the world, they're changing the closet.

They're making "disciples" and then sticking those folks inside the closet to be spiritual until they die.

Perhaps a variety of religious opiates comforts them. Because it is painful for humans to try live inside a tiny, inhumane closet instead of running outside to incarnate the wholistic and liberating information given in the Biblical data.

Meanwhile, if I'm a secularist, I try to keep this strategic arrangement unnoticed and in play until the cows come home.

After about one quarter of this football game, the score's 700 to 0 -- it's a little bit easier to win when you're the only team on the field. It's not that difficult to defeat a team that stays in the dressing room. Even if it's deeply engaged in spiritual activities in there, with lots of goosebumps.

Yes, the secularists have their setbacks. The natives get restless, as it were.

But strategically -- culturally, politically, educationally, and across the society -- by and large, for Marxists and other secularists, it's the smell of victory in the morning.
