The Frankfurt School, Cultural Marxism and Racial Reconciliation Services: the Connections

Rev. Sam Murrell is a black Anglican priest in the Anglican Church in North America who will no longer participate in racial reconciliation services.   As a teacher of worldview Rev. Murrell has identified the myths, lies, and anti-Christ presuppositions operating at the foundation of the concept of racial reconciliation services:

“Words Matter. As people of the Word, language is important and I believe it is time the Church gave up the common use of the word ‘race’ and all of its cognates. They only help to perpetuate an untruth about the nature of mankind. In the anthropology of Scripture, race is an alien concept. Scripture does not speak of ‘the races’ as subsets of humanity, but it does speak of ‘tongues (which can be translated as religions), tribes and nation’. As long as the Church concedes to the terminology of a Darwinian worldview we will never get closer to modeling the oneness of the Body of Christ for the world that is spoken of in Scripture. The Church must not capitulate to the secular world on this matter and put words into our mouths, and in doing so perpetuate a false reality. God’s Word has this right; there is one ‘race’ and many scattered tongues, tribes and nations. Many anthropologists agree that the 19th-century idea of many ‘races’ is not a biological reality but rather a myth. My point here is not to argue the science but to emphasize worldview.” (Why I No Longer Participate in Racial Reconciliation Services, Rev Sam Murrell, kuyperian.com, Jan. 20, 2018)

Rev. Murrell is absolutely correct.  Worldview and worldview presuppositions (foundations) absolutely matter! Racial reconciliation is a Darwinian and sociopolitical construct of socialistic Progressive Leftism and its religiously pagan counterpart, Liberal and/or Progressive Christianity and is therefore a lie from Hell..

At the level of presupposition, Progressive Leftism and Progressive Christianity otherwise known as Cultural Marxism, are revamped and revised forms of ancient pagan evolutionary pagan materialism (Acts 17: 18-19) syncretized with heretical Protestantism, making Progressive Christianity not Christian at all but rather neo-pagan and sociopolitical theology of  Godless humanism passing itself off as Christian.  It is in fact sexually perverse idolatrous nature worship grounded in an esoteric evolutionary cosmology.

 Neo-pagan materialism belongs to the family of Naturalism, which refers to the view that nature is the Ultimate Substance (i.e.,evolving energy field or star stuff according to Carl Sagan) out of which the universe and all life evolved, thus "all is one."   C. S. Lewis describes naturalism as a box with its top sealed tightly closed in order to keep out the Triune God and the supernatural realm.  The ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Ionians, and Aztecs were, for example, naturalists.  In this view there is but one realm (the material or natural) as opposed to Christianity's creation model with its two interacting realms: natural (the seen) and supernatural (the unseen).

 Because “all is one,” or in “solidarity,” the linchpin of Progressive Christianity, as with Progressive Leftism, is cultural determinism, the parent of identity politics and group solidarity.  In its turn, cultural determinism was birthed by the Darwinian idea that man is nothing but a product of creative evolutionary energies.  Thus man is a bio machine or soulless hominid whose  identity is genetically determined for example, by his skin color or his sexual and/or erotic preferences.  This proposition rejects the concepts of the human spirit/soul (imago Dei), personhood, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience (paired with personal accountability and responsibility) because it emphatically denies the existence of the supernatural Triune God.  

The contemporary Progressive Left and its religiously pagan counterpart hold that non-socialist societies are composed largely of genetically racist, homophobic, bigoted, mentally ill oppressors and their oppressed victims:

 "The alleged cause of this social arrangement is the economic system of free-market capitalism, which is viewed by the left as the root of all manner of social ills and vices -- racism, sexism, alienation, homophobia, imperialism. In the calculus of the left, capitalism is an agent of tyranny and exploitation that presses its boot upon the proverbial necks of a wide array of victim groups -- blacks and other minorities, women, homosexuals, immigrants, and the poor, to name but a few. That is why according to the left, the United States (historically the standard-bearer of all capitalist economies) can only do wrong.”  (DiscovertheNetwork)

Progressive Christianity is a 'death of God' theology that rejects the supernatural Triune God, hates the Gospel, reduces Jesus Christ to mere mortal, and is more about being properly positioned and seen as against manufactured evils,

 “…how “moral” and “religious” they look to other like-minded people choosing ‘love’ over ‘hate’ – rather than genuine concern for the people/groups these “evils,” it’s claimed, negatively effect. It’s self-congratulatory virtue vanity, it’s empty, and it violates Jesus’ admonition against practicing one’s righteousness before men instead of calling those they claim to represent to a higher standard of living as disciples of Christ." (Progressive Christians to Take Back Their Faith After Election, Derryck  Green, The Aquila Report)

The Connections

The carefully concealed connections between Progressive Christianity, Progressive Leftism, Cultural Marxism, the Frankfurt School's Theodor Adorno and racial reconciliation services is hatred of the Triune God and His Christ and Western and American civilization because it is grounded in Christianity. 

Karl Marx makes very clear his burning hatred of the Christian God in his poem "The Pale Maiden" where he declares war upon  God and the world created by Him.   Marx also admits the existence of his soul, heaven and hell: 

"Thus heaven I've forfeited; I know it full well; My soul, once true to God; Is chosen for hell." (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 22)

"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority....Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done....Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds." (Mikhail Bakunin, comrade of Marx, ibid, p. 27)

In anticipation of the revolutionary storm that would baptize the world in an inferno of red terror, wholesale destruction and rivers of blood leading to its rebirth as the promised land of social justice and proletarian equality-Frederich Engels wrote, (1)

"All the...large and small nationalities are destined to perish...in the revolutionary world storm... (A general war will) wipe out all...nations, down to their very names.  The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only reactionary classes...but...reactionary peoples."  ("The Magyar Struggle," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, Jan. 13, 1849)

But by the end of WWI, socialists realized that something was amiss, for the world's proletariat had not heeded Marx's call to rise up in bloody opposition to evil capitalism and embrace communism instead.  

Wondering what had gone wrong two Marxist theorists-Antonio Gramsci of Italy and Georg Lukacs of Hungary-concluded that the Christianized West was the obstacle standing in the way of a Godless communist new world order.  The West would have to be de-Christianized first.

Gramsci posited that because Christianity had been dominant in the West for over 2000 years, not only was it fused with Western civilization, but it had corrupted the workers class.  The West would have to be stealthily de-Christianized, undermined, demoralized and corrupted by Marxist operatives through a "long march through the culture."  Additionally, a new proletariat must be created.  In his "Prison Notebooks," he suggested that the new proletariat be comprised of criminals and bitter, resentful women and racial minorities.

The new battleground, reasoned Gramsci, would be the culture. Starting with the traditional family it would completely engulf and corrupt churches, seminaries, schools, media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, science, and history.  All of these institutions must be radically transformed and the social and cultural order gradually turned upside-down with the new proletariat placed in power at the top.

In 1923, the Frankfurt School--a Marxist think-tank--was founded in Weimar Germany.  Among its founders were Georg Lukacs, Herbert Marcuse, and Theodor Adorno.  The school was a multidisciplinary effort which included sociologists, sexologists, and psychologists. 

The primary goal of the Frankfurt School was to translate Marxism from economic terms into cultural terms. It would provide the ideas on which to base a new political theory of revolution against traditional culture and on identifying and demonizing 'new' victimizers as well as the new 'oppressed' groups. Smashing religion, morals, the church, and family, it would also build a constituency among academics who could build careers studying and writing about the new 'victimizers,' (traditional Americans) and their oppressed victims. 

Toward this end, Marcuse-who favored polymorphous perversion-expanded the ranks of Gramsci's new proletariat by including homosexuals, lesbians, and transsexuals.  Into this was spliced Lukacs obscenely perverse sex education and cultural terrorism tactics.  Gramsci's ‘long march' was added to the mix, and then all of this was wedded to Freudian psychoanalysis and psychological conditioning techniques. The end product was Cultural Marxism, now known in the West as multiculturalism.

Additional intellectual firepower was required: a diabolical theory to pathologize who and what was to be destroyed. In 1950, the Frankfurt School augmented Cultural Marxism with Theodor Adorno's idea of the ‘authoritarian personality.'  This concept is premised on the notion that Christianity, morality, capitalism, and the traditional family create a character prone to racism and fascism.  Thus anyone---but especially white Christian conservatives-- who upholds America's traditional moral values and institutions is a priori guilty of both racism and fascism.  Children raised by traditional values parents, we are told to believe, will almost certainly become racists and fascists.  By extension, if fascism and racism are endemic to America's traditional culture upheld by white Christian conservatives and Americas middle class, then everyone raised in the traditions of the Christian God, family, Biblical morality, patriotism, gun ownership, private property, and free markets is in need of psychological help.

The pernicious influence of Adorno's ‘authoritarian personality' idea can be clearly seen in some of the research that gets public money.

"In Aug., 2003, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the results of their $1.2 million tax-payer funded study.  It stated, essentially, that traditionalists are mentally disturbed.  Scholars from the Universities of Maryland, California at Berkeley, and Stanford had determined that social conservatives...suffer from ‘mental rigidity,' ‘dogmatism,' and ‘uncertainty avoidance,' together with associated indicators for mental illness."  (Social and Emotional Learning," edwatch, Jan. 26, 2005)  

In the ever-evolving sophistry of malicious American Progressives, racism exists in the DNA of white traditionalists:

"Our pro-cross dressing President apparently doesn’t think people have DNA that makes them male or female. But he has just told an interviewer that white people and others have DNA that makes them racist and that American institutions are racist, too. These claims are described by our media as “bold” rather than bizarre racial slurs....It’s highly ironic that Obama would lecture others about racism, since he was admittedly “schooled” in anti-white racism by communist atheist Frank Marshall Davis. One Davis poem, “Christ is a Dixie Nigger,” dismissed Jesus Christ as “another New White Hope.”  (Obama Talks DNA Based Racism on Comedy Show, Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy in Media, June 22, 2015)

Theodor Adorno crafted his authoritarian personality idea so as to pathologize America's traditionalists--the socially conservative, mainly white Christian population.  After years of terroristic psychological bullying to beat down and bring white people into submissive acceptance of their a priori guilt, the time was ripe to infiltrate the orthodox Christian church with a subset of Adorno's idea: racial reconciliation services where the premise,

"... of the worship service is that Whites are guilty because they are White. This is evident in the fact that the white people present at such events are expected, even pressured, to confess the sin of racism even if they cannot recall any specific instances of racist action that they have perpetrated. The assumption is that because you are white then you must have knowingly, or unknowingly, caused offense towards Blacks (and maybe other ethnic minorities too). An example of this guilt-by-association is that, although you may be unable to find any instance of slave ownership in your genealogy, you are held accountable for the history of slavery in the United States of America. The black person stands as representative of the innocent victim of so-called racism and thus serves a priestly role for the white confessor who is guilty because of a lack of melanin in the epidermis. The white person’s pigmentation carries with it a privilege, and that is enough to require repentance."  Rev. Sam Murrell

As Rev. Murrell noted, racial reconciliation services are from Satan and have no place in the orthodox Christian church.  Yet recently, the PCA {Presbyterian Church of America) demonstrated a woeful lack of discernment with the release of a fairly in-depth report on racial reconciliation:  http://www.pcaac.org/racial-and-ethnic-reconciliation-study-committee-report/

As faithful orthodox Christians we must own our personal sins and confess them to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but stand against the stealthy snares set for us by sinister, spiteful God-haters.  Furthermore, we must not allow God-haters to abominate the Genesis account with their evolutionary theories or to persuade us accept a false-burden of guilt and the need to submit to racial reconciliation.  Do not listen to unrepentant Godless Pied Pipers on the fast track to Hell.
