Back in April 2011, I blogged on Richard Wurmbrand, who was a Lutheran pastor whom the Communists violently tortured over a period of 14 years from the late 1940s to the early 1960s.

In that post, I used excerpts from the Appendix to one of Wurmbrand’s books, Marx and Satan.  I promised more from the book and, as such, shall start with a series of posts from the Scribd document which contains the work in its entirety.

Today’s post is from the Introduction, which he revised in 1993, advising us that the Communist threat is far from over.  Emphases mine.

This work started as a small brochure containing only hints about possible connections between Marxism and the Satanist church.

No one had ventured to write about this before. Therefore I was cautious, even timid. But in the course of time more and more evidence has accumulated in my files, evidence I hope will convince you of the spiritual danger part and parcel of communism.

Marxism has governed over one-third of mankind. If it could be shown that the originators and perpetrators of this movement were indeed behind closed-doors devil-worshipers, consciously exploiting Satanic powers, would not such a startling realization require action?

If some were to reject my thesis out of hand, it would not surprise me … Ideas die hard, and a mindset, unlike a computer chip, is not easily altered or replaced. Even fresh evidence may fail to persuade … But I offer credit [and] proofs to support my thesis, and I invite you to carefully consider them.

The Communists certainly took note of this book, which has been translated … and was smuggled into Iron Curtain countries in great quantities. For instance, the East Berlin journal Deutsche Lehrerzeitung, under the heading “The Killer of Marx,” denounced my book vehemently, calling it “the most broadly based, provocative, and heinous work written against Marx.”

… Would Marxism be discredited if men knew about his connection with Satanism? Do enough people care?

Marxism is the great fact of modern life. Whatever your opinion of it, whether or not you believe in the existence of Satan, whatever importance you attach to the cult of Satan practiced in certain circles, I ask you to consider, weigh, and judge the documentation I present here.

I trust it will help you orient yourself to the problems with which Marxism still confronts every inhabitant of the globe today
