The Dangers of Following False Ideologies

One of the most frightening facts about Americans today is that most do not even know what truth is anymore. So, instead of seeking the truth concerning philosophy, religion, politics, ethics, economics, sociology, law, and history, most just blindly follow a particular systematic body of concepts  (i.e. an ideology) which “feels right to them”. The problem being that their chosen ideology “which feels right” may not correspond with reality. In other words, many of their beliefs may not be true and if acted upon could lead to disaster. To make matters worse, ideologues are often impossible to correct even when they are confronted with airtight logical arguments and factual evidence which proves their beliefs are wrong.

For instance, take the ideology of communism and its variants with their long history of murderous purges, gulags, forced labor, man-made famines, and genocides. It’s an historical fact that during the last century alone well over 100 million innocent people were murdered by their own communist governments. Communism always leads to disaster because it does not correspond to reality. Communists wrongly believe that mankind by nature is basically good, and that we are evolving and moving forward (like in an episode of Star Trek). When the reality is that mankind is by nature self-centered and evil, and society is morally growing worse and worse, but good luck demonstrating these facts (which are demonstrable) to a communist and expect them to listen.

It doesn’t even matter that communism in it’s purest form has never produced anything except massive poverty, misery, and death, the communist ideologue will still believe that communism works and that it will one day usher in a global utopia of sustainable development, human equality, and social justice. Another major problem with ideologues is that most (if not all) don’t even know that they are ideologues. Rather, they believe they are enlightened independent thinkers when in reality they are more like a flock of sheep. I’m not picking on the hard left though, there are millions of ideologues on the political right as well.

The ideologues thinking process can be pretty much summed up in the following manner: ”That feels right to me and lines up with my accepted ideology. So, I believe it. Therefore, it is true and everyone who disagrees with me is wrong.” Just about every government official in Washington and reporter in the mainstream media today thinks like this.

They are blinded by pride, feelings of intellectual enlightenment, and just firmly believe that their ideology is correct. People like this often refuse to read well researched articles and history books which don’t agree with their beliefs because they are not interested in “discovering the truth” since in their own minds, as I said before, they think they already know the truth.

To demonstrate the incredible dangers of holding to ideologies which don’t line up with reality look no further then hard left ideologue Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Two weeks ago she was absolutely dumbfounded after our American consulate in Benghazi was burned and Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered by the very al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood terrorists we used to overthrow and murder Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. Her own words demonstrate how blind and clueless she is concerning Islam and the Middle East. After the tragedy Hillary Clinton publicly gave these stunning remarks:

“This is not easy. Today, many Americans are asking – indeed, I asked myself – how could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction? This question reflects just how complicated and, at times, how confounding the world can be.”

Let’s get this straight, since the Arab Spring when the United States fully backed known Islamic Terrorist organizations (which this administration labeled “freedom fighters”), we now find the entire Middle East is in a crazed anti-American uproar, Christians are being murdered throughout the region, hundreds of thousands have been forced to flee, churches are being burned, secular Egyptians have been nailed alive to trees in front of the Presidential Palace in Egypt, multiple American embassies stormed, our Ambassador and three other Americans ruthlessly murdered, and Hillary Clinton with all her paid staff at the State Department doesn’t know how this possibly could have happened???

It’s absolutely laughable. Then the next day she publicly blamed everything going wrong in the Middle East on a YouTube video while also stating that Islam is a “great religion” which fully respects the fundamental dignity of human beings:

“I also want to take a moment to address the video circulating on the Internet that has led to these protests in a number of countries… To us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose: to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage… Violence, we believe, has no place in religion and is no way to honor religion. Islam, like other religions, respects the fundamental dignity of human beings, and it is a violation of that fundamental dignity to wage attacks on innocents.”

Her complete disconnect from reality concerning Islam doesn’t reflect her staggering ignorance nearly as much as it reflects her monumentally, stupendous,  egotistical pride for herself, and her own hard left, blatantly false, politically correct ideology. She like President Carter, Bush Sr., Bill Clinton, and Bush Jr. never once sought the truth concerning the nature of Islam. They are all to this day completely blinded of the truth because they are all ideologues which don’t seek the truth.

Any sincere seeker of the truth, who has read a Qur’an or a factually correct book on the modern Middle East conflict like: From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict over Palestineby Joan Peters, or even the “Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)” by Robert Spencer, knows perfectly well that appeasement is always seen as weakness in the eyes of the jihadists and will always make them more aggressive, warlike, and murderous. The truth is that Islam is a cultural religion where culture, religion, and politics are inseparably intertwined and whose purpose is to impose, by force if necessary, a 7th Century Arabic culture on the entire world. Islam is NOT a religion of peace. The Qur’an not only condones violence against unbelievers, it actually commands it! I could list well over 100 Qur’anic verses which specifically command violence against non-Muslims. Here are are just a few: (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:216), (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:191-193), (Surah Al-Anfal 8:12), (Surah At-Taubah 9:5), (Surah At-Taubah 9:123). That is why all our attempts to create “free western style democracies” throughout the Islamic Middle East will fail.

Once Islam is understood, it becomes quite easy to understand why the Palestinians in Gaza, when given a chance to vote democratically in 2006 (thank you President Bush) elected the HAMAS terrorist organization to lead them and soon after that legalized crucifixion as a form of capital punishment. It is just part of Islamic Sharia Law: (Surah Al-Ma'idah 5:33). The Arab Spring’s disastrous outcome was blatantly obvious from the very beginning. Now, thanks to the blind ideologues in Washington we can sit back and watch as an Islamic caliphate forms and the next round of wars erupt.  The Arabs  will attempt to recapture Jerusalem, conquer Israel, and then they hope to conquer the world.

The Muslims have made their future intentions quite clear from the beginning. Just listen to the Muslim Brotherhood’s own words  spoken to a crowd by Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi’s Cleric back in June:

“Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem, Allah willing! Our cry shall be: ‘Millions of martyrs will march towards Jerusalem!’

“The United States of the Arabs will be restored by this man [Mursi] and his supporters. The capital of the [Islamic] Caliphate – the United States of the Arabs will be Jerusalem, Allah willing! Yes, Jerusalem is our goal!

“Yes, we will either pray in Jerusalem or else we will be martyred on it’s threshold. Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem!”

.

The video of the Clerics speech is a MUST see (Mursi is sitting right behind him):

The truth is that the radical Muslim Brotherhood, which was allied with Adolf Hitler during WWII, is not moderate, secular, or pro-western in the least, even though that is what we are repeatedly told by mainstream media and the Obama administration. All this non-sense would be laughable if the reality wasn’t so tragic. I firmly believe that God has allowed the Obama administration to unwittingly set the Arabs up for their Biblically prophesied destruction right before our very eyes. The Bible says that in the last days Jerusalem will send all the surrounding people reeling:

“This is the word of the Lord concerning Israel. The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the spirit of man within him, declares: ‘I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling.” – Zechariah 12:1-2

The Bible also says that the Arabs will be judged in the last days because of their long history of violence against the Israelites:

“Because of the violence against your brother Jacob,
you will be covered with shame;
you will be destroyed forever.” – Obadiah 1:10

And the LORD declares that as the Arabs have done to Israel it will be done to them:

“The day of the Lord is near
for all nations.
As you have done, it will be done to you;
your deeds will return upon your own head.” – Obadiah 1:15

Israel will be a consuming fire and destroy the Arabs when they attack:

“‘The house of Jacob will be a fire
and the house of Joseph a flame;
the house of Esau will be stubble,
and they will set it on fire and consume it.
There will be no survivors
from the house of Esau.’ The Lord has spoken.” – Obadiah 1:18

The prophet Zechariah said the same thing:

“On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.” – Zechariah 12:6

If the fate of the Islamic Arab nations is their destruction, what is the divine judgment headed for the United States whose elected leaders (thanks to ideological blindness) have empowered Islam with the ability to unite and attack Jerusalem and God’s chosen people?

The LORD gave an eternal promise to Abraham and his descendents:

“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse…” - Genesis 12:3

The book of Joel explains that all the nations will be judged because the nations scattered God’s people Israel and divided up His land:

“I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.”

The “land for peace process”, led by the United States over the last three decades, which has chopped the LORD’s land up while empowering Israel’s enemies, has brought divine national judgment upon us.

Blindly following ideologies which don’t reflect reality can be extremely dangerous and costly.

The wise King Solomon once said:

“Pride goes before destruction,
And a haughty spirit before a fall.” – Proverbs 16:18

May the Holy God of Israel protect you and yours.
