The Largest Remaining Communist Nation

By Jay Rogers
Published March 1, 1993

By Fred Schwartz

Some contend that the regime in China is communist in name only. They point out that the authorities are now permitting limited economic freedom which they believe is incompatible with communism and socialism. Is this clear or wishful thinking?

Was Mao Tse-Tung a communist? Did he and his communist colleagues rule China for decades? During the communist campaign to conquer China, many influential voices claimed that the Communist Party, which Mao led, could not be genuinely communist because it was distributing land to the peasants instead of collectivizing it. Thus, so the claim went, they were actually agrarian reformers.

History reveals how wrong these judgments were. Collectivization of land had to wait until the communist conquest of China was complete.

When the communists use the word “socialism,” they are referring to the “first stage of communism,” during which the Communist Party holds a monopoly of political and economic power. The founder of the modern communist movement, Lenin, defined socialism as. “The dictatorship of the proletariat, plus electrification.” This can be translated as, “The monopolistic rule of the Communist Party, plus industrialization.” This describes the present situation in China as well.

The regime in China is definitely Marxist-Leninist in practice as well as in name. It is a communist regime. During “socialism” any economic system is permissible as long as the Communist Party controls all the levels of power. By the use of these levers, it can change the economic system by unilateral decision whenever it chooses to do so.

According to reports, China is presently making considerable economic progress. This is due to the installation of what the communists call, “a Socialist Market Economy.”

A sporting analogy may shed a little light on what is meant by a “Socialist Market Economy.” Consider a fictitious organization we may call “The Communist Football League.” This league is owned by a group of gangsters who operate it for personal power and profit. They divide the territory and organize a football team in each designated area. They make sure that the manager of each team is a member of the gang. The leader of the gang directs the managers to select coaches and players and to decide upon and enforce the conditions of employment. The leadership of the gang also designs the rules of the game and chooses the umpires.

Under the previous socialist regime of “Command and Administer,” the communist gang decided everything. It chose what games would be played, who would score the touchdowns and which side would win. The “progressive” leaders insisted that all points should be shared equally.

Since the players had little incentive, the games were insipid and the crowds diminished. The gangsters, therefore, decided to establish a football market. Each team would be permitted to do its very best to win and the winners would be rewarded both financially and emotionally. Almost immediately there was a surge of interest and excitement in both players and fans and the profits of the gang improved.

As long as their power to control was not threatened, the gang could applaud the new system. The important fact to remember is that the communist gang still retains power in China and it can use this power if conditions develop that threaten their authority. They used their power in the Tiananmen Square massacre and they can do so again as long as they retain the will to do so.

Their master, Lenin, taught that three things are necessary for a popular revolution to overthrow an existing authoritarian government. These are: 1) Mass popular discontent, 2) An organized party to harness and direct public discontent, and 3) A collapse of the unity and will of the existing authority.

The vital question which the future will answer is: “Will the Socialist Market Economy create the conditions for a successful popular revolution which overthrows the gang?”

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).
