Our Pastor Emeritus, David M. Atkinson, continues his analysis of the devastation brought to the world by the atheistic communism of Karl Marx. The materialism-only (there is no soul or spirit) focus of this one troubled man had five implications that touched every facet of human existence. These implications were codified in the dogma of "The Communist Manifesto" and expanded in "Das Kapitol." This system fails because it is poor economics built on a faulty, naive view of fallen human nature. These deadly errors mean that Communism and Socialism CAN NEVER deliver their optimistic projections.
