Albert Mohler: The Deadliest Ideas Come With The Deadliest Consequences

Billy Graham

October 2017 marked a very important anniversary, the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik communist revolution in Russia that led to the creation of the Soviet Union.

The 20th century represents, as one major historian has named, “the century of megadeath”; and at the center of that “megadeath” is the great lie and deception, the great evil that was the communist revolution and the communist regime in the Soviet Union.

Soviet communism almost surely led to well over 100 million deaths. Add to that about 300 million deaths that came in the wake of the Maoist communist revolution in China.

Initially, Representative Murphy announced he would retire at the end of his term. Subsequently, he told Speaker of the House Paul Ryan that he’d resign effective October 21. 

This kind of hypocrisy at this level on the question of the sanctity of human life is not only immoral, it’s downright deadly. Day by day, vote by vote, headline by headline, America’s soul on the question of the dignity and sanctity of human life is becoming more apparent.
