Continuing with excerpts from the late Lutheran pastor Richard Wurmbrand‘s Marx and Satan, what follows are glimpses into the lives of children and Christians under Communist regimes.

Wurmbrand also explains why the language of Marxism and its offshoots is so complex.  It’s meant to confound and confuse.  Therefore, if you don’t fully understand their theory after reading them over and over again, consider yourself fortunate.  Marx called his own books ‘swinish’ and his ‘criticism’ a ‘nonsense’.

This post is not for those of a sensitive nature — or young children. However, once again, I cannot express how important it is for high school and university students to read this text, whether at home or as part of a church youth group.  Marx, Communists, Socialists and theorists (e.g. Fabians and the Frankfurt School) are only attacking God.  They don’t really care about building a better, more equal world.  Destruction and death are part of their goal — just for the sake of it.  What they propose and encourage us to do around the world is nothing short of criminal.  Wurmbrand calls it demonic, as it revolves around blasphemy.  The economic and social theory is a mere mask. You’ll find out more in this chapter.  Unfortunately, many of us have been lured to accept Marxism as something benevolent and loving for mankind.  Wurmbrand even gives statistics from the late 20th century showing how many American clergymen find it compatible with Christianity!  What a mistake!

Those interested in regression ‘therapy’ may also find this chapter of use to see how the Soviets deployed what Wurmbrand refers to as ‘occult’ techniques.

Excerpts are taken from pages 48 – 54 of the text, which can be found in full on Scribd. Subheads are in the original. Emphases in the text are mine.

Chapter Six – A Spiritual Warfare

The Little and the Big Devils

According to current official Marxist doctrine, which, as has been illustrated, is only a disguise, neither God nor the Devil exists. Both are fancies. Because of this teaching, Christians are persecuted by the Communists.

However, the Soviet newspaper Kommunisma Uzvara (April 1974) reported that many atheist circles were created in Red Latvia’s schools. The name given the children in the fourth through sixth grades was “little devils,” while seventh graders were called “servants of the Devil.” In another school eighth graders had the name “faithful children of the Devil.” At the meeting the children came clothed as devils, complete with horns and tails.

Thus, it was forbidden to worship God, though devil worship was openly permitted and even encouraged among children of school age. This was the hidden objective of the Communists when they seized power in Russia …

The Communists consider it wrong to believe in God. For this “crime,” many children were separated from their families and kept in special atheist boarding schools.

Incredibly, the Communists even wanted to make Satan-worshipers of church leaders. A Russian Orthodox priest named Platonov, an anti-Jewish agitator, went over to the side of the Communists when they came to power in Russia. For this, he was made a bishop and became a Judas who denounced members of his flock to the Secret Police, well knowing they would be severely persecuted

Pravoslavnaia Rus writes:

The Orthodox cathedral in Odessa, so much loved by the Odessites, became the meeting place of Satanists soon after the Communists came to power…. They gathered also in Slobodka-Romano and in Count Tolstoi’s former home.

Then follows a detailed account of Satanist masses said by deacon Serghei Mihailov, of the treacherous Living Church, an Orthodox branch established in connivance with the Communists.  An attendant describes the Satanist mass as a “parody of the Christian liturgy, in which human blood is used for communion.” These masses took place in the cathedral before its main altar …

Religious Obscenities

It might be in somesense “logical” that Communists would arrest priests and pastors as counter-revolutionaries. But why were priests compelled by the Marxists in the Romanian prison of Piteshti to say Mass over excrement and urine? Why were Christians tortured into taking Communion with these as the elements? Why such an obscene mockery of religion? Why did the Romanian Orthodox priest Roman Braga, whom I knew personally when he was a prisoner of the Communists, and who presently resides in the U.S.A., have his teeth knocked out one by one with an iron rod in order to make him blaspheme?

The Communists had explained to him and others: “If we kill you Christians, you go to heaven. But we don’t want you to be crowned martyrs. You should curse God first and then go to hell.”

… Some prisoners were compelled to take off their trousers and sit with their naked bottoms on open Bibles.

Marxists are supposed to be atheists who believe in neither heaven nor hell. In these extreme circumstances, Marxism has lifted its atheistic mask to reveal its true face, the face of Satanism. Communist persecution of religion might have a human explanation, but the fury of such perverse persecution can only be Satanic.

In Romanian prisons and in the Soviet Union as well, nuns who would not deny their faith were raped anally, and Baptist girls had oral sex forced on them.

Many prisoners who were so treated died as martyrs, but the Communists were not satisfied with this. Using Luciferian techniques, they made martyrs die blaspheming because of the delirium provoked by torture

Torture is productive, it leads to ingenious inventions– this is all Marx had to say about the subject. No wonder Marxist governments have surpassed all others in torturing their opponents!  This alone displays the Satanic nature of Marxism …

Satanist desecrations of Catholic churches occurred in the 1970s in Upyna, Dotnuva, Zanaiciu, Kalvarija, Sede, etc., localities in Lithuania. One about which we know happened in Alsedeai on September 22, 1980.

In his book Psychiatric Hospital 14, Moscow, Georgi Fedotov tells of his conversation with the psychiatrist Dr. Valdimir Lwitski about a Christian named Argentov who was detained there. The physician says, “You are pulling your friend Eduard toward God and we toward the Devil. So I’m using my rights as a psychiatrist to deny you and your friends access to him.”

The Christian Salu Daka Ndebele was interrogated by the Secret Police of Maputo in Communist Mozambique. The officer said to him, “We want to kill your God.” He raised his gun toward the head of the prisoner and declared, “This is my God. With this I have the power of life and death. If your God comes here, I will shoot Him dead myself.”

In Chiasso, Communist Angola, Communists slaughtered animals in a church and placed their heads on the altar and pulpit. A poster proclaimed, “These are the gods whom you adore.” Pastor Aurelio Chicanha Saunge was killed, together with one hundred and fifty parishioners.

When the Catholic Lithuanian priest Eugene Vosikevic was killed, his mouth was found to have been filled with bread, an apparent Satanist ritual.

Vetchernaia Moskva, a Communist newspaper, let pass a Freudian slip of the pen:

We do not fight against believers and not even against clergymen. We fight against God to snatch believers from Him.

… We do not wonder at these words in a Soviet newspaper. Marx had said it already in his book German Ideology. Calling God “the absolute Spirit,” as his teacher Hegel had done, he wrote, “We are concerned with a highly interesting question: the decomposition of the Absolute Spirit.”

… In Albania a priest, Stephen Kurti, was sentenced to death for having baptized one child. Baptisms must be performed in secret in many Communist lands, including North Korea …

In the former Soviet Union baptisms could be officiated only after registration. Persons wishing to be baptized or to have their child baptized presented their identity cards to the representative of the church board, who in turn reported them to the state authorities. The result was persecution. Kolkhozniks (workers on collective farms) had no identity cards and could therefore baptize their children only secretly. Many protestant pastors received prison sentences for baptizing people.

The Communist fight against baptism presupposes belief in its value for a soul. Religious people in Israel or Pakistan or Nepal oppose baptism in the name of their own religious outlook, because it is a Christian seal. But for atheists– as Communists clearly declare themselves to be– baptism should mean nothing. Supposedly it neither benefits nor harms the baptized. Why then do these Communists fight against baptism? It is because Communists “fight against God to snatch believers from Him.” Their ideology is not really inspired by atheism, but by a fervent hatred for God.

“Among other purposes,” said Lenin, “we created our party specifically for the fight against any religious deceiving of the people.”

Occult Practices

More about the relationship between Marxism and the occult can be found in Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain by Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroder. It is highly significant that the Communist East had been much more advanced than the West in research about the dark forces manipulated by Satan …

In Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, etc., the Communist Party spent huge sums on secret investigation into this science. They hid from the West information about what happened in the twenty parapsychological institutes located in the Soviet Union.

Komsomolskaia Pravda (Moscow) published a lengthy article about hypnotists who help people “regress to past lives.” For the induction process they use the following suggestions:

You descend into earth, deeper, even deeper. You and the earth become one…. You are deep in the earth. You are surrounded by thick darkness…. Around you is eternal night…

Now we approach a spot of light far away… nearer and nearer. We sneak through a small hole to the sky, leaving our own body deep in the earth…. We overcome the frontiers of time … and we return to your past….”

Soviet writers said clearly that this “time machine” was not science fiction. “Transpersonalism” offered this voyage in time.

In the Satanist black masses, all prayers are said from the end to the beginning, and the priestly robe is worn inside out. Inversion is the Satanist rule, and this is applied even to the doctrine of reincarnation. Whereas Indian devotees are concerned about their future reincarnations and try to better themselves by obeying what they believe to be God’s commandments, the Satanists offer a return to former incarnations. They care nothing about a better future in eternity.

Marxism as a Church

… Volume 2 ofThe Works o f Marx and Engels opens with Jesus’ words to His disciples (John
6:63), as quoted by Marx in his book The Holy Family: “It is the spirit which gives life.” Then
we read:

Criticism [his criticism of all that exists] so loved the masses that it sent its only-begotten son [i.e., Marx ], that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have a life of criticism.  Criticism became masses and lived among us, and we saw its glory as the glory of the only-begotten Son of the Father. Criticism did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made itself of no reputation, taking the form of a bookbinder, and humbled itself up to nonsense– yes, critical nonsense in foreign languages.

Those knowledgeable in Scripture will recognize this as a parody of Biblical verses (John 3:16; 1:14; Philippians 2:6-8). Here again, Marx declares his own works to be “nonsense,” as well as “swinish books.”

Marxism is a religion, and it even “uses” Scripture. Its main work, The Capitalle by Marx, is called “the Bible of the working class.” Marx considered himself “the Pope of Communism.”

Communism “has the pride of infallibility.” All who oppose the Communist “creed” (this expression is used by Engels) are excommunicated

Those who die in the service of Marxism are feasted as “martyrs.” Marxism also has its sacraments: the solemn receptions in the toddlers’ organization called “the Children of October”, the oaths given when received as “Pioneers”, after which come the higher grades of initiation in the Komsomol and the Party. Confession is replaced with public self-criticism before the assembly of Party members.

Marxism is a church. It has all the characteristics of a church. Yet, its god is not named in its popular literature. But, as seen by the proofs given in this book, Satan is obviously its god.

It is strange that though Marxism is clearly Satanic, it is not seen as a threat by many churches in the free world. Some illuminating statistics on this are available.

Seminary professors in the U.S.A. were asked, “Can an individual consistently be a good member of your denomination and adhere to Marxism?”

Below are the percentage figures of those who answered Yes:

Episcopalian – 68 %

Lutheran – 53 %

Presbyterian – 49 %

Methodist – 49%

Church of Christ – 47 %

American Baptist – 44 %

Roman Catholic – 31 %

How sad that those who follow the Truth are duped by those who serve the father of lies.
