While those of us in the West continue to enjoy our modern-day comforts we need to be concerned about what is happening in China, namely a fever-pitch rise in secularism and a new form of totalitarianism injected with modern tools that make resistance almost impossible.
Today, the threat of atheism, which fuels authoritarian rule, is even greater. China contains half of the world’s population. It also has its tendrils throughout the rest of the world as it becomes even more aggressive as a police state at home and industrial mob-boss abroad, employing new technology to monitor and control not only its own “netizens,” but its global partners as well, as detailed in this report you might find most disconcerting.
And this gives me pause to reflect on the subject matter contained in Paper 195 of the Urantia Book, where the authors extensively discuss the dangers of two primary social constructs of the modern age:
In my early years of study I had considered these two subjects directed more at the early 20th Century, as modern secularism through socialism was quite rampant and of course, Russia and China were pursuing communist goals which opened the door to Totalitarian governments in smaller countries like Cuba North Korea, and others, as this horrific ideology spread
Over time Russia seemed to moved towards a more open Democracy (relatively speaking), and China also seemed to be embracing modern open-markets and presumably, seemed more open to democracy.
If you read the news you are becoming aware that human-rights in China are at an all-time low, and religious expression is under full assault by the Communist party. When half of our world is run by a government which has made it against the law to believe in God and only give adherence to Chairman Xi, there is a problem.
One wonders what our unseen friends make of it.
Urantia Book Historian Larry Mullins mentioned he was informed on one occasion the Revelators, during the early years of World War II, had expressed grave concerns (in the spiritual echelons of planetary government) about the rise of communism, so much so that it delayed the completion of the Urantia Book for almost ten years while celestial and world armies were at busy at war.
Because China wields so much planetary influence, it is easy to contemplate the importance of not letting an atheistic regime such as China’s reign supreme.
