Was St. Paul Fighting Communism Too?

The letter to the Ephesians may tell the full story.

October 6, 2023  0



Just a reminder that Church Militant brings you the best, most insightful coverage of Pope Francis' synod underway in Rome this whole month.

Our Rome correspondent, Jules Gomes, breaks down the happenings each day in our popular program Rome Dispatch, hosted by Brad Eli. Click on the provided link to keep up on everything.

Now, St. Paul and communism may be separated in history by almost 2,000 years — but truthfully, not really.

Catholics are in the midst of an identity crisis brought on since the end of Western civilization, which, for the record, is over. What has moved into the power vacuum is the greatest tyrannical government known to man: communism, trafficking these days under the pseudonym of "globalism." Call it whatever you want; it's all atheistic tyranny designed to crush belief and the soul.

Keenly aware of the influence and power of government, St. Paul spells this out in his letter to the Ephesians: In each successive generation, Christ's followers must win the world for Him. Paul lays out his plan for doing just that in his letter to the Catholics at Ephesus, but very few Catholics today actually know this.

Evil never rests.

We've had it so good for so long that the need to be constantly vigilant and aggressive no longer sufficiently exists in our mindset and worldview. Evil never rests; why on earth would Catholics think that we can?

Do you want to get a handle on what Paul was talking about? In fact, you need to get a handle on it! For this reason, Church Militant is offering our first-ever masterclass on the Bible, specifically, St. Paul's letters to the Ephesians, where the great apostle is crystal clear about all this.

Starting on Oct. 22, it will be available to you live, and it will run for six consecutive Sundays at 4 p.m. ET.

Classes will be live on Zoom but will also be downloadable for those of you who can't be present during live sessions. One ticket covers your whole household. Homeschooling families, bring your kids for a college-level biblical theology education.

Understanding Scripture and politics should be foundational for Catholics, and that's why we're bringing you an expert like our friend and biblical scholar Chris Plance to teach you the nitty-gritty of what you need to know.

So please sign up for this special offering from Church Militant today by just clicking on the provided link. Make this a priority. Spend a few hours learning in a class setting, and stop being passive.

The world is falling apart, and too few seem to know or care to do anything about it. Don't let that be you.
