Joseph Mattera on 10 Reasons Why Radicals Burn Bibles

It was only a matter of time before many protesters showed their true Marxist intentions regarding their worldview.  It came to the attention of many that the original founders of Black Lives Matter and groups like Antifa have a radical agenda that transcends those who seek to peacefully protest such incidents as the horrific murder of George Floyd.

These radical groups want nothing less than to deconstruct the entire nation. To do that, they will have to rid themselves of some of the basic Judeo/Christian presuppositions prevalent in the founding of our nation.

Recently, Bible burning has been reported to have taken place in Portland, Oregon.  Bible burning can also be seen as a metaphor to point to any attempt to systematically eradicate or make illegal the Word of God. This article aims to give reasons why some segments of the global population may desire to “burn Bibles” and rid the world of the Scriptures.

The following are 10 reasons why progressive radicals desire to burn Bibles:

1. Binary gender

The radical agenda of the far left presently promotes “gender fluidity” in which a person determines their own gender. They decide their gender based on psychological reasons more than biological reasons. Their inward feelings trump their birth design and human anatomy.

The Bible limits gender to a binary design of either male or female, which is manifested at birth (Genesis 1:27, Matthew 19:14). Because of the absolute view of the scriptures related to its depiction of God’s image, radical progressives will desire to burn Bibles (Genesis 1:27).

2. The nuclear family

The radical progressives want to deconstruct the traditional nuclear family of a male and female, committed together in marriage, who procreate and nurture children after their own kind.

However, to the disdain of radical progressives, the Biblical pattern God ordained is the traditional nuclear family (Genesis 1:28, Psalm 127, Ephesians 5:22-6:4). Since radicals do not want the traditional nuclear family to be considered “the norm” they desire to burn Bibles.

3. Parents responsible for their children

The radical progressives promote government control over children through public education. This is manifest in communist and socialist nations. In the national socialist nation of Nazi Germany, children were considered wards of the state.

Scripture is clear that parents are responsible for nurturing their own children (Proverbs 1:8-9; Proverbs 22:6, Proverbs 29:17, Isaiah 54:13, Ephesians 6:1-4). Since secular cultural elites want the general population to be more loyal to the state than to their biological family, they will try to burn Bibles.

4. The role of government

The radical progressive view of civil government is all-encompassing in which elective officials use public policy and law to control every aspect of life, including religion. Their view of “big government” is Messianic in nature. They believe that their goal of having a perfect society can only be achieved through political elites making decisions for the masses regarding religion, wealth distribution, housing, education, and media.

Contrariwise, the Biblical view of government, focuses on civil leaders’ power primarily in matters of civil defense, keeping the peace, and ensuring justice in the “gates” (See the whole narrative of Kings and Chronicles as well as 1 Sam. 8:10-18, Proverbs 8:15-16, Romans 12:1-7, 1 Tim. 2:1-4).

For example, God did not want political leaders to interfere with religious matters. We see that King Uzziah of Judah became a leper after he attempted to leave his governmental lane to burn incense, which only the priests were allowed by God to do (2 Chron. 26:16-21). King Jeroboam was also judged by God for doing the same thing (1 Kings 13). The only exception to this law was King David, who functioned like a prophet, priest, and king because he was a type and shadow of the coming Messiah.

Since the Scriptures forbid civic governmental interference with the church, radicals desire to burn Bibles!

5. The view on race

Radical progressives attempt to utilize the belief in different races of humans. This belief is propagated to pit one ethnic group against another. The biblical view is that there are not multiple races but only one human race. The human race is expressed by various nations and ethnic groups created in God’s image (Genesis 1:26, Acts 17:26, Revelation 7:9-10).

Since scriptures teach that God never divided humanity along the lines of race, radicals desire to burn Bibles to propagate critical race theory, incite class warfare, and spread various Marxist ideologies.
