Defining Political and Religious Terms and Doublespeak Words

The meaning of a number of words has changed over the years to where they have a very different meaning in today’s vernacular. In the list of political and religious terms below, I have attempted to provide the more traditional definition of the word or term. For the definition of words from the time of the country’s founding, the reader is encouraged to reference Noah Webster’s 1828 dictionary or online at www.1828.mshaffer.com to check for the earlier historical definition.

Defining Political and Religious Terms

Virtue:

Moral goodness; the practice of moral duties and the abstaining from vice, or a conformity of life and conversation to the moral law. In this sense, virtue may be, and in many instances must be, distinguished from religion. The practice of moral duties merely from motives of convenience, or from compulsion, or from regard to reputation, is virtue as distinct from religion. The practice of moral duties from sincere love to God and his laws, is virtue and religion. (Webster 1828 Dictionary)

Moral Evil:

Moral evil is any deviation of a moral agent from the rules of conduct prescribed to him by God, or by legitimate human authority; or it is any violation of the plain principles of justice and rectitude.

There are also evils called civil, which affect injuriously the peace or prosperity of a city or state; and political evils, which injure a nation, in its public capacity.
All wickedness, all crimes, all violations of law and right are moral evils. Diseases are natural evils, but they often proceed from moral evils.  (Webster 1828 Dictionary)

Atheism:

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines atheisim as “The disbelief of the existence of a God, or Supreme intelligent Being.” Today it is a social and political movement often engaged in removing any reference to God or religion from school, law, or society at large. It shares many aspects to secular and humanism.

Humanism:

Humanism is a secular progressive religion where man is God. It is also social philosophy, and political movement that rebels against of God, Law, and Commandments. It pushes evolutionary science, materialism, and moral relativism with the goals of removing God from society, and the hearts and minds of people.  

“You see, the average person think that the teachings of humanism and the triumph of the human spirit is the antidote to cure the wickedness of the world. Yet, in reality, they are actually following the teachings of the king of wickedness, satan.”

— Billy Crone – Pastor of Get A Life Ministries and Author of the Book The Final Countdown

Progressivism: 

“American Progressivism” (in the 21st century) is both a religious philosophy and a social political movement. It is a denial of God and rejection of an absolute truth. Fundamentally is a revolt against God, His Laws and Commandments, biblical moral basis for right and wrong, and the traditional family. Its values are often without virtue, thus open to jealousy, envy, deceit, hypocrisy, malice, slander, and hate. Hate typically of those who profess their biblical beliefs publically. Without Biblical standards of moral conduct, the political movement is often authoritarian forcing social changes through legislation, though force of government and the courts, rather than by popular vote or opinion.

Tactic of the movement are often lies, fear, intimidation, character assassination of opponents, false choices, payoffs, and election fraud. Their success in large part depends on citizens being uninformed of the truth and consequence of the change, and ignorance of the Bible, Constitution, and governmental law.

In pushing for social change, progressives will sometimes partner with atheists, socialists, communists, Marxist, and Islamist, as they are at odds with or an enemy of Christianity. Education and media are assets employed as a long term way to force social change by changing people’s thinking in areas such as biblical norms and beliefs, moral absolutes, situational ethics, modernism, social justice, environmentalism, social progressivism, capitalism, and socialism and communism. The reeducation or generational propaganda, which often is emotional without a scientific or supportable basis, but over time, neutralizes opposing views especially of citizens who often inaccurately perceive that it is the belief of the majority their fellow citizens. Following a “herd mentality,” many become useful assists in pushing for the social change that they once opposed.

“Progressivism leads inevitably to utter irrationality and eventually political, as well as moral chaos.”

— Robert V. Young, Jr. (1947-) Professor, Author, and Editor of the quarterly Modern Age

Leftism:

Leftism is a left-wing secular religion.

“And that is what leftism is: a secular meaning-giver to supplant Christianity. Left-wing religious expressions include Marxism, communism, socialism, feminism and environmentalism.

Dogma Of Secular Religion

Leftism’s guiding principles — notwithstanding the principles of those Christians and Jews who claim to be religious yet hold leftist views — are the antitheses of Judaism and Christianity’s guiding principles.

Judaism and Christianity hold that people are not basically good. Leftism holds that people are basically good. Therefore, Judaism and Christianity believe evil comes from human nature, and leftism believes evil comes from capitalism, religion, the nation-state (i.e. nationalism), corporations, the patriarchy and virtually every other traditional value.

Judaism and Christianity hold that utopia on Earth is impossible — it will only come in God’s good time as a Messianic age or in the afterlife. Leftism holds that utopia is to be created here on Earth — and as soon as possible. That is why leftists find America so contemptible. They do not compare it to other nations but to a utopian ideal — a society with no inequality, no racism, no differences between the sexes (indeed, no sexes) and no greed in which everything important is obtained free.

Judaism and Christianity believe God and the Bible are to instruct us on how to live a good life and how the heart is the last place to look for moral guidance. Leftists have contempt for anyone who is guided by the Bible and its God, and substitute the heart and feelings for divine instruction.”

— Dennis  Prager (1948- ) Author, Columnist, and Talk Radio Host

Conservatism:

“American Conservatism” is political movement and social philosophy, advocating for tradition social values and Constitutional principles. It supports some aspects of biblical authority on law, government, and traditional Christian morals, while mute on others. It is more focused on capitalism, limited government, debt, personal responsibility, and reducing citizen’s dependence on government. It supports citizens Constitutional rights, speech, religious expression, and liberty of conscience. The Constitution is often viewed as a fixed document where any changes need to be done through the proper amendment process and voted on by the states, not circumvented by the courts or through legislative action.

Conservatives often ignore or avoid the biblical underpinnings and religion of the Founders who created the founding documents. Members tend to focus on the law and rule of law as a means to an end, rather than the spirit of the law (what evil rather than good it is trying to eliminate or punish) and biblical basis and authority of the law. A generally held belief among most conservatives is that the United States is exceptional compared to other nations. The term often used to describe this is American Exceptional, which the credit due to country’s freedom, capitalism, and traditional values.

Crime Against the Constitution

“Any act by government or agents contrary to Constitution or law is a crime, not ‘just politics’”!

— James H. Dearmore II – Preacher Baptist Missionary

Liberalism:

Modern American Liberalism is an ideology, social philosophy expressed as a political movement.  It rejects biblical authority advocating for freedom from tradition Christian morals and teachings. Its emphasis is on establishing a strong central government to control capitalism, control religious expression, to change religious beliefs away from God, and to construct a dependent welfare state. Thus the Constitution is often viewed as outdated document, an obstacle to social change due to its biblical underpinnings and religion of the Founders who created it.

“Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide.”

— James Burnham (1905–1987) Leader in the American Communist movement, turned conservative.

“For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man ‘unclean.'”

— Mark 7:21-31 RSV

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools,” “And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.”

— Romans 1:18-22, 28-32 RSV   Link to Full Bible Passage

“Liberalism is totalitarianism with a human face.”

— Thomas Sowell (1930)  Economist, Political Philosopher, and Author

White Privilege:

Is a term used by those in Progressives and Socialist movement which is intended to cause civil unrest and undermine Judeo-Christian values. Website

Tolerace:

Tolerance today is love without the truth or a means subverting a persons Christians biblical teachings and traditions, being pressured to accept what God has clearly indicated is sin against His laws and teachings.

“Sin is destructive to people, to families, to nations and to the church. Sinful behavior that is excused and repackaged as personal choice is Satan’s greatest deception. His greatest victories today take place within the church by those who remain silent; who are not aware of his divisive presence. … It is cowardice to excuse sin by claiming we have no right to judge what God has already judged. There is only one personal choice that decides where we spend eternity; if we choose Christ and all He stands for, we gain Heaven; if we deny Christ’s Word, we are cowards and deserve hell.”

— William Franklin Graham III (1952) CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

Republicanism: 

Republicanism is a political philosophy based on Biblical Laws, principles, and world view shared by many of the founding fathers and patriots. It can be summarized as the Biblical basis of law, government, basis of liberty, and way one should conduct their lives in a civil society.

Republican values can be summarized as fear of God, love of country, patriotism, respect for the sanctity of the Constitution, limited government defined by the Constitution, frugality, personal responsibility, free market or economy, respect for just laws (laws that do not violate the laws of God or as the Declaration of Independence is founded, “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”), respect for rights given by God not man or government, all men are equal in God’s eye (equal rights), equal application of the law, biblical basis of law, biblical basis of government and that liberty and freedom are gifts from God.

Republican virtues are virtues such as honesty, sincerity, integrity, responsibility, Industry, temperance, cleanliness, tranquility, silence, order, justice, moderation, chastity, economy, frugality, character, selflessness, humility, respectful, hard work, perseverance, self-sacrifice for the greater good and respect for God and His higher law (above the laws of man).

American Exceptionalism:

American Exceptionalism is an observation of a people and nation enjoying blessings of liberty, and the fruits of adherence to God’s Laws and Commandments. It requires self-restraint, internal self-government, and personal obligations to God. It is not just about business, finance or money, because without God’s blessings there would be no prosperity. Thus, if you remove God, personal responsibility, and adherence to a set of moral rights and wrongs, then American is no longer morally good. If America is no longer morally good, than its no longer exceptional. God is the bedrock, the spiritual basis of American Exceptionalism.

Communism:

Cultural Marxism:

Cultural Marxism is a neo-Marxist social theory and movement was born in the 1930’s in Germany, known as the “Frankfurt School.” This ideology of cultural Marxism was a war against God, capitalism, and Western Christian culture. …

Through Hollywood, media, and academia, Marxists would use popular culture and the subversive practice of “deconstruction” to undermine and destroy western Christian culture and society. Deconstruction is the re-framing of the narrative (rewriting) of history and undermining the morals and values, the basis of American and Western Christian culture. 

Intersectionality:

A Marxist based theory being taught in school that our differences such as race, gender and gender spectrum, sexual orientation, or religion (our grievances) are more important than what unites us such as America’s motto E Publius Unum “Out of many, one.” Thus the more grievances or differences you have the more preferential treatment you deserve from everyone else.

People who suffer from this condition when asked to explain their behavior often cannot verbalize the reasons behind their irrational emotional reaction. Due to the hatred of those who hold traditional Christian Biblical values that are in positions of political power [Seven Mountains] implies “demoralization” or ideological subversion which may possibly be due to the mainstream media lies and propaganda or spiritual entanglement with evil or demonic forces.

Law of Nature:

[Websters 1828 Dictionary] Law of nature is a rule of conduct arising out of the natural relations of human beings established by the Creator, and existing prior to any positive precept. Thus it is a law of nature, that one man should not injure another, and murder and fraud would be crimes, independent of any prohibition from a supreme power.

The practice of moral duties from sincere love to God and his laws, is virtue and religion. In this sense it is true.” 

The Higher Law:

God’s Laws (Laws of Divine Providence) are the Higher Laws. That Higher Law can be summarized as a combination of the physical laws (such as gravity) and God’s spiritual laws. It consists of the Natural Law, which the founding fathers called the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God (Declaration of Independence), and Revealed Law from the Old and New Testament.

Ideological Subversion:

“Ideological subversion is the process which is legitimate, overt and open. You can see it with your own eyes. All you have to do—all American mass media has to do—is to unplug their bananas from their ears, open up their eyes and they can see it. There is no mystery. There is nothing to do with espionage. … [It] is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, or active measures … or psychological warfare.

What it basically means is to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interests of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country. It’s a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.

The first one is demoralization; it takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years which is required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy, exposed to the ideology of the enemy. In other words, Marxist-Leninist ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students, without being challenged, or counter-balanced by the basic values of Americanism, American patriotism.

The result? The result you can see. Most of the people who graduated in the 1960s, drop-outs or “half-baked intellectuals,” are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, educational system. You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated. They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern.

You cannot change their mind. Even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the logical of behavior. … I could never have believed in fourteen years ago when I landed in this part of the world that the process would go that fast.”

— Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov (1939-1993) Defected from the Soviet Union in 1970, Trained in Psychological Warfare Methods of Ideological Subversion

Demoralization:

“Demoralization is … a process in psychological warfare with the objective to erode morale among enemy combatants and/or noncombatants. That can encourage them to retreat, surrender, or defect rather than defeating them in combat.” Wikipedia

The Russian program of Ideological subversion purpose was (and is today now with China and Russia) psychological warfare program targeted to “change the perception of reality of every American.” … “Marxist-Leninist ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students, without being challenged, or counter-balanced by the basic values of Americanism, American patriotism.”

“The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already for the last 25 years. Actually, it’s over fulfilled, because demoralization now reaches such areas where previously not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such tremendous success. Most of it is done by Americans to Americans thanks to lack of moral standards. As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him, even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents and pictures. … He will refuse to believe it.”

Distributism:

Wikipedia “Distributism is an economic ideology asserting that the world’s productive assets should be widely owned rather than concentrated. It was developed in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries based upon the principles of Catholic social teaching, especially the teachings of Pope Leo XIII in his encyclical Rerum novarum (1891) and Pope Pius XI in Quadragesimo anno (1931). It views both capitalism and socialism as equally flawed and exploitative, and it favors economic mechanisms such as small-scale cooperatives and family businesses, and large-scale antitrust regulations.”

The Seven Mountains:

“There are seven areas of society that exert a tremendous influence over the direction of culture. These are areas of society which have the greatest influence over people’s thinking, morals, public opinion, and on what is popular. People can be influenced into to being good and “salt and in light” in the world, or conversely into sinning against God and doing evil.

The Seven Mountains of influence in society:

1. Government:
2. Media:
3. Arts and Entertainment:
4. Business:
5. Education:
6. Family:
7. Religion:

It would stand to reason that evil would attempt to gain spiritual control over these who control the lever of power in society. Through their positions of influence, they can affect the thinking and actions of millions of people (souls). … Once you have a person or group of people, they can be used to spiritually under your control to corrupt other people’s morals, virtues, to sin against God, breakdown the family structure, remove God from every aspect of society, and destroy God’s blessings in the nation of liberty etc. …

We see some reporters … doing evil through lies and deception hiding the truth, influencing people’s thinking, public opinion, and direction of culture. Changing the direction of culture in a way that is contrary to God’s Laws and Biblical principles towards evil (the father of lies). …

Among many mainstream media outlets there is an eerie “group think” or collective hive mentality. Most have heard the montage of sound clips of the different networks, all reporting the on same news story, using virtually the same exact words and phrases. Humor aside, we see there is collective group think at work in covering stories from the exact same liberal, and often anti-Christian viewpoint and perspective.

The Devil exists, and he can not only possess a single person but also groups and entire populations.

— Father Gabriele Amorth (1925–2016) Italian Roman Catholic Priest, and Exorcist of the Diocese of Rome

If we take the time to look into many these news stories, aside from the biased perspective in reporting, we often find the network omitted important information as to bias the story or narrative for their own purposes. …”

The Incorruptibles – Incorruptible Saints: 

Incorruptibility is a sign of Sainthood. By divine intervention, the laws of nature have been suspended. (Embalmed bodies are not recognized as incorruptible.) This miracle is found normally only in the Catholic Church with devout religious and Saints, and to a lesser degree within in the Eastern Orthodox Church.

There are over 250 incorruptible Roman Catholic Saints.

  1. Their bodies do not decayed or the process dramatically slowed.
  2. Many are still flexible, and bleed if cut.
  3. Some have a sweet smell or sent of smell flowers. Often a miracle such has dramatic healing have been attributed to them.

“The incorrupt bodies of these saints are simply a living witness or proof to the truth of the Catholic religion as the one true faith from God, who has confirmed the testimony of the Church in the great miracles he has worked through it’s saints.”

Patriot: 

Patriotism is more than a person who vigorously supports his country and its way of life. It is a spirit of liberty and righteous of God and His Divine Law.

Websters dictionary (1828) defines RIGHTEOUS: as Just; accordant to the divine law. Applied to persons, it denotes one who is holy in heart, and observant of the divine commands in practice; as a righteous man. Applied to things, it denotes consonant to the divine will or to justice; as a righteous act. It is used chiefly in theology, and applied to God, to his testimonies and to his saints. The righteous in Scripture, denote the servants of God, the saints.

Without God and His divine authority, it is not Patriotism but subversion, treachery, disloyal and betrayal, especially of a moral obligation.

“A patriot without religion in my estimation is as great a paradox as an honest Man without the fear of God. Is it possible that he whom no moral obligations binds, can have any real good will towards men? Can he be a patriot who, by an openly vicious conduct, is undermining the very bonds of society? … The Scriptures tell us ‘righteousness exalteth a nation.’”

“… for a true patriot must be a religious man. … He who neglects his duty to his Maker may well be expected to be deficient and insincere in his duty towards the public. Even suppose him to possess a large share of what is called honor and public spirit, yet, do not these men, by their bad example, by a loose, immoral conduct, corrupt the minds of youth, and vitiate the morals of the age, and thus injure the public more than they can compensate by intrepidity, generosity, and honor? Let revenge or ambition, pride, lust, or profit, tempt these men to a base and vile action; you may as well hope to bind up a hungry tiger with a cobweb, as to hold such debauched patriots in the visionary chains of decency, or to charm them with the intellectual beauty of truth and reason.”
