What is Marxism?

...and Why it Matters today...

Marxism is the belief that people are divided into two groups – the oppressors and the oppressed.

The oppressors use systems to stay in power over the oppressed. The oppressors are inherently evil, and the oppressed are inherently good.

For Karl Marx, the oppressors are the rich capitalists, and the oppressed are the working class poor.

How to Spot it: TODAY

...Traditional vs Modern Marxism...

The goal of Marxism today is to destroy our culture from the inside out.

Today, there are two groups:

  • The “privileged oppressors”  heterosexual white males, and Christians.
  • The “marginalized oppressed” – females, LGBTQIA+,  certain ethnic minorities: blacks, hispanics, non-christians, etc.

Where traditional Marxism resulted in the murder of those “oppressors” who did not align with the state’s attempts to bolster the “oppressed”…

Neo-Marxism uses cancel culture to silence views considered “oppressive.”

Examples of neo-Marxism today:

DEI - Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

DEI sounds like a term for holding everyone of diverse backgrounds to the same and equal standards, without discrimination. In reality, DEI policies discriminate against views that the elite considers to be “oppressive” by calling those views “racist,” “homophobic,” or “sexist.”

Critical Race Theory

Critical Race Theory specifically applies Marxism to race. It says that white people are inherently racist and in the oppressor class, and black people are inherently victims and in the oppressed class.

How to Respond

...Truth is the Central Enemy of Marxism...

The Neo-Marxist value system is directly in opposition to the truths in scripture that made our society prosper.

Family, Religion, Private Property: According to Neo-Marxism the oppressed use systems to maintain power – thus, those systems must be overthrown, including family, religion, national borders, and private property ownership. 

According to Neo-Marxism, if you are oppressed, then you cannot say or do anything wrong. If you are the oppressor, then everything that you say or do must be viewed through the lens of the oppressed.

Truth is the Antidote

  • Truth and Morality itself originated in God’s word – Psalm 119:160
  • Everyone is equality responsible for their behavior – Romans 2:1-11
  • Everyone is created equal – Acts 17:26
  • Justice and correction of oppression are Biblical values – Isaiah 1:16-18 
  • Redemption of mankind is found only through Christ – Galatians 3:28
  • Reconciliation of all people is possible only through Christ – Ephesians 2:11-22

Every person views the world through a lens, or perspective, that dictates what they believe, how they act, and what motivates them. 

This perspective answers questions such as, what defines right and wrong? What is my ultimate purpose in life? Where did we all come from, and where are we going?

Marxism is a perspective, a worldview that pits groups of people against each other in an endless conflict.

This is completely opposite to the biblical worldview, which not only explains where conflict comes from, but gives a clear solution for that conflict.
