In the light of the extraordinary campaign against Christianity on the University of Stellenbosch campus, many are asking if we are merely dealing with isolated incidences of anti-Christian bias and prejudice, or whether there is actually an agenda to hijack universities, infiltrate the news media, break down Christian standards of morality, discredit the family as an institution and undermine Christianity.
Cleon Skousen published the book "The Naked Communist" in 1962. On 10 January 1963, the official communist goals, as published and exposed by this book, were read into the Congressional Record. These are a few selected items from the published communist agenda:
Those are just a selection from the Communist Agenda as published in "The Naked Communist" 50 years ago.
20 years ago, I listed the Humanist Agenda in South Africa as follows:
Man is a product of evolutionary chance and this theory must be taught as a fact of science in schools and in the media.
Education should be controlled by the State.
Education should be secular – free of moral absolutes and non-Christian.
Sex Education in schools should be compulsory.
Pornography should be allowed as 'free speech'.
Abortion is 'a woman's right'.
Homosexuality is an acceptable 'alternative lifestyle'.
Criminals are 'victims of society' requiring treatment and rehabilitation.
The right of citizens to obtain, own, and use firearms for self-defence must be limited and eventually eliminated.
All power and authority must gradually and progressively be centralised in big government.
Agenda – Grinding America Down
If you have not had the opportunity to see Agenda: Grinding America Down, you need to. Dr. Ted Baehr of Movieguide reviews the film in these words: "Agenda: Grinding America Down is the most powerful expose of the communist, socialist, progressive attempt to take over America produced so far. The documentary presents the connections between the different communist, socialist, progressive organisations with great clarity and shows how they have implemented their agenda to dismantle American patriotism, morality and spirituality."
Resources for Reformation
Christian Action has much literature and many films available to help you inform and involve your congregation, co-workers and fellow students in countering the humanist agenda. Among our leaflets that would be helpful are: Communist Liberation – Myth and Reality and The Heart of Communism.
Christian Action Magazine editions dealing with The Battle for the Mind in the News Media and How Propaganda Changes People and Perceptions.
Agenda and Agenda 2 are both available from Christian Liberty Books.
