A Story About Karl Marx

Since under the current government, we are fast becoming a communist nation, I thought a short story about Karl Marx was in order. God help us.

At the request of his father, Karl Marx was baptized at 6 years old into the Evangelical Established Church. Marx's adolescent writings exhibited a spirit of Christian devotion and longing for self-sacrifice on behalf of humanity.

Later at the University of Berlin, he fell under the influence of a young lecturer in theology named Bruno Bauer who was developing the idea that the Christian gospels were a record not of history but of human fantasies arising from men's emotional needs and that Jesus had not been an historical person. Marx also enrolled in a course of lectures given by Bauer on the prophet Isaiah. Bauer taught that a new social catastrophe "more tremendous" than that of the advent of Christianity was in making. He would eventually call religion the opiate of the masses.

When Marx wrote his book Das Kapital, he wanted to dedicate it to Charles Darwin. Darwin also was once a theology student and eventually repudiated the Bible and became an agnostic.

Just as these men abandoned their faith, our nation has abandoned our Christian heritage. God's judgment has started and nothing but repentance can possibly stop it. Christian, trust in God because He alone is our salvation, deliverer, and shield.
