Unity Does Not Equal Uniformity

Yet as Afanasyev points out, “the progressive tendency in the Nationalism of the oppressed nations is not permanent. That is why the Marxist party, while supporting the struggle of the oppressed peoples for liberation, tries to free the working people from the influence of all bourgeois nationalism, because it is incompatible with proletarian internationalism.”

F. N. Lee
Communist Eschatology –pg. 460

This is important to note. Marxism will support nationalism and people group identity in the cause of defeating capitalism. However, this is only a temporary support to the larger agenda of stripping from people their national identity in favor of Internationalist amalgamation. When Marxists support a nationalist movement it is a classic case of dialecticism where they are supporting the antithesis of their thesis in order to arrive at their amalgamated synthesis.

This desire for complete amalgamation and blendering of all peoples into a unitary Borg has been noted repeatedly by observers of Communism throughout history. In the book “Marx and Satan,” Richard Wurmbrand writes,

“In Communism there will be no state, no division of the world into countries, and no social classes…”

John Edwards Richards, Presbyterian Theologian listing in 1973 the reasons for separating from the PCUSA, listed one of the reasons of wanting to be separate was what he believed that in the PCUSA were the,

“The Communists, who would have one mass of humanity coerced into oneness by a totalitarian state and guided exclusively by Marxist philosophy.

The Arminian Aiden Wilson Tozer, in a sermon noted the same about Marxists wanting Beehive oneness of all humanity as the Presbyterian Theologian John Edwards Richards noted above when Tozer said,

“You can’t change my mind about God having made us the way we are. The yellow man and the white man and the black man — God made our races. I know the Marxists and the bubbleheads say: ‘Oh, that’s old-fashioned baloney! Everybody should get together and intermarry and pretty soon there won’t be races, and where there are no races there won’t be any hate, and if there’s no hate, there won’t be any war.’ Oh, for cotton batting to stuff in the mouths of people who don’t know better than that!

Even the Marxists themselves explicitly said that they were working towards a globalist Unitarianism where all colors and people bleed into one;

“The aim of socialism is not only to abolish the present division of mankind into small states and end all national isolation; not only to bring the nations closer together, but to merge them….”

Vladimir Lenin
The Rights of Nations to Self Determination — pg. 76

The idea that we need to do away with races, varied ethnicity and nations is an idea that runs straight through the Marxists right back to Satan. Those who support a Christianity that is defined as erasing all racial, ethnic, national distinction by putting them all into a blender or by recruiting them all to indistinguishable member cogs in a Church are doing the devil’s bidding. Your multicultural church is not Christianity. It is Marxism.

  1. Excellent post, even though Marxism doesn’t really aim at the defeat of capitalism. Otto Kahn put it best:

    You say that Marxism is the very antithesis of capitalism, which is equally sacred to us. It is precisely for this reason (that they are direct opposites to one another) that they put into our hands the two poles of this planet and allow us to be its axis. These two contraries, like Bolshevism and ourselves, find their identity in the Internationale. These two opposites, the doctrine of the two poles of society, meet in their unity of purpose: the renewal of the world from above by the control of wealth, and from below by revolution. Our organization for revolution is evidenced by destructive Bolshevism, and for construction by the League of Nations, which is also our work. Bolshevism is the accelerator and the League is the brake, on the mechanism of which we supply both the motive force and the guiding power.
