Why? Because ideology stands for a body of doctrine, a belief system. As a Christian the scripture informs me that love confronts a false doctrine. Why does God want His ministers confronting a false teaching? It is because God loves all people and He wants them to be set free.
Paul tells Timothy in 1 Timothy 1:3-11 (underlines were added):
"As I urged you when I went into Macedonia—remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, 4 nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith. 5 Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, 6 from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm. 8 But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust."
Love Confronts False Ideologies
Love confronts false doctrines. Now I know this portion of scripture refers to the Mosaic law. However the principles from this can be applied as we look at our civil laws today. Laws are good. They are for murderers, fornicators, sodomites, kidnappers, liars and perjurers. These are the kinds of people that advocate lawlessness and riots that have led to hundreds of millions of property damage and whose activities have led to more deaths. It seems like BLM only cares if a black person is killed by a white cop.
A Washington Times quotes radio host Larry Elder in Black Lives Matter AWOL as violence claims hundreds of Black victims highlighting the obvious. The photo of a crime scene sets the stage saying "Chicago police officers investigate the scene of a shooting in Chicago on Sunday, July 5, 2020. At least a dozen people, including a 7-year-old girl at a family party and a teenage boy, were killed in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend, police said. Scores of people were shot and wounded. " The article notes that BLM has been remarkably silent. Larry Elders said, "“More people have been shot and killed in Chicago at this point in 2020 than in 2019, despite two months of stay-at-home directives,” said Los Angeles conservative radio host Larry Elder in an email. “Where is Black Lives Matter when you need them?” As far as Mr. Elder is concerned, it’s a rhetorical question, one that he has repeatedly answered with the hashtag: #BlackLivesMatterOnlyWhenKilledByWhiteCops. BLM has remained silent.
For context, this 2016 article by Forbes says, "Homicides in Chicago Eclipse US Death Toll in Afghanistan and Iraq." Black on black crime is the major contributor to these stats. This is insanity to me. Can't we just all agree that murder is wrong no matter who does it or what color their skin is? If black lives really mattered these people in Chicago would matter.
But those with a political motive have hijacked the race issue because it is the easiest one to inflame people's emotions.
Why did BLM not answer Larry Elder? Because his observations do not fit the narrative, they seek to use to stir up emotions which makes it easier to blind and manipulate people. Ever heard of blind rage?
If black lives really mattered, then the number one destroyer of the black race would be addressed: Planned Parenthood! The Democrat's darling project. According to the Arizona Capitol Times in this February 2020 piece Abortion: the overlooked tragedy for black Americans as black women experience a much higher rate of abortion than any other race. It said, "The impacts on our black communities are hard to fathom. According to the Guttmacher Institute, which generally supports abortion, in 2011 360,000 black babies were aborted. CDC statistics for 2011 show that 287,072 black deaths occurred from all other causes excluding abortion. By these numbers, abortion is the leading cause of death among blacks."
I am for people but I hate any ideology that destroys so many innocent lives.
BLM, Antifa, and the Democrat Party Platform all espouse doctrines based upon belief systems inspired by Marxism that espouses false realities. Marx and Engels who wrote the "Communist Manifesto" in 1848 were atheists. Communism and socialism were introduced in their work.
