No matter if the topic at hand has to do with politics, science, education, social issues, or religion, Leftism is like a destructive, malignant cancer that spreads throughout these arenas of ideas, infecting both spectators and participants with deadly consequences.

Regarding politics, one need look no further than the events of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election - what an absolute destruction of all that is Constitutional and lawful. Congress, the Judiciary, and every single alphabet agency has been exposed as either sympathetic to - or too cowardly to resist - the tyranny of communism, the ultimate leftist ideology.

Regarding science, in the past, members of the atheistic scientific community admitted their motivation to erase God through (false) science had to do with God "getting in the way of our hedonistic desires" - so, disprove the existence of God, then with a clear conscious pursue whatever depraved, licentious desire you fancy. Did you know the "father of Artificial Intelligence", Marvin Minsky, was on Jeffery Epstein's "Lolita Express" flight logs?

Regarding education, leftists have taken control of education at every level and have eradicated the teaching of Civics and replaced it with Social Justice, Liberation Theology, 1619 Project, etc., all based on distorted facts/outright lies about history, economics, political agendas, and the development of the U.S. and its contribution to modern society.

Regarding social issues, the left continually seeks to place blame for the lack of economic, educational, and societal success of certain minorities in the U.S. squarely on the shoulders of Anglo-Americans, refusing to allow as a point of discussion the absolute, undeniable, well documented root cause of these failures: the destruction of the minority family unit through government welfare dependency programs, the architects of which being the leftists themselves.

Regarding religion, leftist thinking has replaced the Biblical axioms of "Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth" and "not My will by Thy will" with endless rounds of rationalism, higher criticism, sympathy toward existentialism, situation ethics - every mechanism you can dream of in order to question what is plainly stated in the Word of God, often resulting in interpretations that are the antithesis of what God originally said.

Alas, the problem of leftist thinking will ever be with us as "the wheat and tares grow together" - and we must pray for patience in dealing with Christian leftists, lest we uproot them and bring upon ourselves the displeasure of a God Who loves them as much as He loves anyone else. It's easy to love the truth...the challenge we must face and overcome is to love the brethren.

You make some good points, but your post is hindered by your narrow focus on American examples. You also did not clearly define what "Leftist thinking" is, while vigorously decrying it.

My immediate thought seeing the title to this thread is that we, as followers of Jesus-Yeshua should be in the world but not of it.

There is a movement currently in America to blend nationalism with Christianity...
It's poison fruit IMHO.
I really don't understand why Christians want to be all involved with politics...after all the scriptures show clearly that Jesus was made into a political football and crucified while the slimy politician was let go free.

This scenario is what our criminal justice system is based upon...the principal that it is better to let 10 guilty go free than to prosecute one innocent person. We don't ever want to prosecute Jesus or Stephan or anyone else who is innocent.

Unfortunately that notion is lost in today's society. And the truth that getting along with those who disagree with you actually makes a better society than one made totally inside of one ideology.

City folk need country folk...and country folk need city folk.
Right needs the Left and Left needs the Right.

But nobody cares about that anymore. It's going to be the undoing of america if they are not careful.

Actually, Jesus said the gates of hell would not prevail against his church. The left sure won't destroy it. :)

I understand and concur phoneman. How it is NOT obvious to all, simply put, confounds me.

Socialism, is the number one killer of all time. Remember what "comrade" Lenin had to say about socialism.

Yep the actual government Christians should be watching for is the one that rises up and rules the whole earth(not just any one nation) like Paul describes in 2 Thess. 2:4 that exalts it's self above all that is worshiped or is called god sitting in the temple showing that he is God(not a political party of just one nation/think world-wide not just left/right in one nation) https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2 Thessalonians 2&version=KJV

Too many bogus statements and assumptions. Should have been a blog post not a discussion thread.

I must ignore this thread, I do not wish to be banned .............

I will say this though.

If you can not see the danger from the leftist two and two is five crowd, you might be part of the problem.

It was meant to be mostly a general OP with room for discussion. Upon which point should I elaborate?

Jesus didn't have to convince His people to distrust the government...they were already well aware of how corrupt and evil it was.

Today, Christians everywhere swallow hook, line, and sinker whatever lies the government tells them - lies told by those who are now undeniably exposed as leftists and RINOs bent on robbing us of our wealth and both kinds of freedom, political AND religious...hence the OP.

Not a single statement is "bogus" or an assumption - you should probably try presenting some worthwhile facts to back up your less than worthwhile opinions.

Wow, have the lefty mods in CC jumped on the Big Tech bandwagon and begun censoring and silencing dissenting Conservative views that expose the insanity of leftism? I've been gone for months.

Sigh...I know the feeling. "The love of Christ compels you" LOL It's easy to love common sense truth - the real challenge is finding love for those who not only employ their wrong philosophy in order to excuse their rebellious desires, but use it to confuse and abuse others.

I would suggest that you clearly and concisely define "Leftist thinking". What is it, in your view, and how is it distinct from other kinds of thinking on the "spectrum"?

The most concise definition of "leftist thinking" is "anything that defies logic, elevates feelings over facts, and compels chicks to dye their hair purple or compels dudes to vote Democrat".

Well said. One could summarize what you have said with this aphorism:

PROGRESSIVISM/LIBERALISM/LEFTISM/SOCIALISM/MARXISM/COMMUNISM/FASCISM/LENINISM/STALINISM/MAOISM/ TYRANNY/TOTALITARIANISM/ GLOBALISM/WOKISM/CANCEL CULTURISM
ARE ALL SPAWNED BY SATAN AND ARE ALL GODLESS.

Marxist Communism is a global phenomenon. One would have thought that Americans particularly would be wary of this godless ideology. But it was not to be.

It is ALREADY the undoing of America. This is not something coming in the future. And the ones who were supposed to be careful and vigilant all turned out to betray everything they should have stood for.
