This booklet was written 12 years ago, but the facts are today still just as true as when it was first written. The course of world events since then has served to confirm them, and is a further proof of how near Communism is to its ultimate aim, namely World Domination.
In this reprint all the personal names like that of Stalin, etc., have been left unchanged, because the names come and go but the facts remain unaltered.
The whole world today is talking about Communism. I doubt whether we will find one person in the civilized world who has not yet heard this word. But the question is, how many of us really know what it is; how many will be able to give you an intelligent answer to the question: “What is Communism?”
The aim of this article is to assist you in answering this question. It lays no claim to any deep study of the subject, but will only present you with sufficient facts to prove to you that we have to do with the powers of hell in human form.
This enemy is no longer far away, but already in our midst and so cleverly organised and strategically placed that it puts us into such a desperate situation, that only the mercy of God can save us out of it. It is a matter this, which towers far above any political aspect, and about which a political party, no matter what its nature might be, can do very little.
Communism is under the direct control of the very devil himself, and we will only be able to fight it by going on our knees, the whole nation and masse, and to ask in all humility for God in mercy to intervene. The whole matter is too far gone for man to think that he can save the situation. Let us give heed to what the Lord has to say in:
Joel 2:15-17; - - - - - -
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that the suck the breast: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
17 Let the priest, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, o LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
- - - - - - - it applies to us in these critical days.
All Communism, no matter of what shade it might be, whether Stalinist or of the “new Tito type”, rejects any religion or faith absolutely. Carl Marx, the father of modern Communism, rejected completely any conception of God as held by
either Christian or Jew. Communism is therefore the direct antithesis of the Christian faith, and it is therefore the openly declared purpose of Communism to wipe the Christian Faith from off the face of the earth! That is exactly what will happen when they gain the mastery - it is happening already in all the countries that have fallen prey to Russia.
Other differences are the following:
(a) The Christian believes that man was created by God -
The Communist believes that man is a by-product of the evolutionary process of matter in motion;
(b) The Christian believes that man has sinned against God and has thus become estranged from God, and that he can only be reconciled to God through faith in Jesus Christ -
The Communist does not believe in the fall of man, but that man is his own saviour;
(c) The Christian believes that the world in its present sinful state is incomplete, and that it will be changed
into a new world wherein dwelleth righteousness: - - - - - -
2 Peter 3:13;
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

The Communist does not believe in a hereafter, to him death is the end of everything;
(d) The Christian believes that according to the Lord's Prayer, the Kingdom of God will eventually be established here on earth and that all things shall become new:
The Communist believes that a bloody revolution and a Communistic dictatorship will create the perfect “Social State”.
Modern Communism, which is based upon the ideology of Lenin (1870-1924) has selected for the propagation of its teachings the basest traits in human nature, namely hate and fear. Hate and the incitement of disharmony is its basic principles and aims, not an honest searching after truth and peace. All who have carefully studied the development and activities of Communism, and have read their most important books, will have to admit that their main theme, from Marx to Stalin, is HATE: hate of the poor toward the rich; the struggle between the non-owner and the owner, between employee and employer. The ultimate goal of this ideological warfare is a world state in which nobody will own anything. There is but a choice between two things for all those who do not belong to the Party - to do as the State dictates, or to die.
