Paul's Passing Thoughts

The Key to Defeating New Calvinism and Marxism in the Church: Youth

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on March 4, 2020

ppt-jpeg4“You better educate youth, because one way or the other, they are going to do a revolution.”

There probably isn’t enough totally ignorant and un-self-aware millennials willing to leave their parent’s basement long enough to elect Bernie Sanders. That’s good, because otherwise, he would be elected. You see, we have it so good here in America that it is sort of like being in high school; reality can be experienced through fads without anyone ending up in a mass grave. We voted for the coolest classmate for class president, not because of any difference he or she would make, but because said person represents everything trending at the time.

Back in the day, people told me they voted for Bill Clinton because, “he’s cool.” And gee whizz, “wouldn’t it be cool to have a black president?” While liberals played the race card during the 2008 elections, the truth of the matter follows: America has become a culture given to low information and feel-good faddish trends; by virtue of Barak Obama being something different, he was likely to be elected. And frankly, with a woman president being the next big thing, I am very surprised Hillary Clinton didn’t win. She should have, and the fact that she didn’t speaks to her stunning incompetence.

Perhaps the best example of this was the Che Guevara “T-shirt fad” otherwise known as “Che chic” and widely popular among young people who tend to be enamored by revolutionary ideas and have an inherent sense of moral superiority. With young people, some sort of revolution is always needed. Call Che chic a mere T-shirt fad if you will, but if he would have run for president at the time of the fad, he would have received 100% of the millennial vote. Also note, during the peak of the New Calvinism movement in the church, “Jonathan Edwards is My Bro” T-shirts were wildly popular among the so-called “Young, Restless, and Reformed” who had no idea whatsoever what Jonathan Edwards believed or taught.

Be sure of this: the New Calvinism movement led by John Piper in the church is very parallel to the present-day phenomena of Bernie Sanders and his millennial generation following. The similarities of John Piper and Sanders are uncanny across the board. Only now do I look back and see how Piper brilliantly exploited the propensity of youth towards misinformed revolution to take over the Protestant church. Oh, and by the way, yes, the New Calvinism movement has taken over the Protestant church.

Does this lesson follow? You better educate youth, because one way or the other, they are going to do a revolution. It goes without saying that the church was woefully inept in educating its youth for hundreds of years. Ritual is not education.  And speaking of high school, what revolutionary ideas are being taught to those who have revolution built into their hormones? A clue: NOT capitalism. If you know anything about history, you know that the youth were key to the Chinese cultural revolution and the rise of Nazism. Misguided youth are a major tool of all tyranny trying to take over a culture. In all cases where they succeed, adults were asleep at the switch.

So, you know me, I believe the church hijacked Christianity circa 350 AD and is not worth saving. But since I am a compassionate soul and have friends on a crusade to save the church from New Calvinism, I can at least help them with that. Basically, they need to look at what those in the Conservative movement are doing presently in politics: they are redirecting the youthful propensity towards revolution with truth.

But that may be some bad news for my church friends because it means you are going to have to start telling the truth about Calvin and Luther in the same way the Conservative movement is telling the truth about Joseph Stalin et al.

In fact, had you done that correctly over the years, John Piper would have been rejected out of hand. “But Paul! Are you saying that Calvin et al were socialist tyrants?!!!!!”

See what I mean?

    Paul, why is “you are going to have to start telling the truth about Calvin and Luther in the same way the Conservative movement is telling the truth about Joseph Stalin et al” what you are calling “bad news”? Are you saying no one will air it but Fox? What would the church correlate be, Christianity Today?

      News outlets are not my main point. The point follows: Christians in general are completely ignorant about the reformers who were a religious version of Communism way before its time. Furthermore, none of it is obscure history and it’s all a testimony to how the church has dumbed down Christianity in general. There is no religion or cult more brainwashed than Protestants.

    I guess I’m curious- what was wrong with Christians banding together to create an international organization ‘the church.’

    What made the pre Constantine brand of Christianity superior in your view? It seems like the post-325 church was more consistent with messaging and eventually led to less Christian persecution throughout the empire, thus facilitating the Gospels’ spread.

      Well, I must commend you for both knowing and admitting that there is a difference. To find a Churchian who doesn’t think John the Baptist was the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Jerusalem is refreshing. The difference is literal family versus institution and a cooperative body versus hierarchy, and ALL authority vested in the head of the body. Our kingdom is not presently on earth, that’s future. Salvation is finished and does not progress through an institution established by God on earth. Christians are born again from above and not by water baptism overseen by a religious institution as both Calvin and Luther believed.
