The Evils of Collective Salvation

Update 5:20 PM: Be sure to watch Glenn Beck tomorrow, July 13th. The entire program will be devoted to the issue of Collective Salvation.

Christians, what you don’t know about so-called “collective” or “communal salvation,” aka “Social Justice,” could pave your road to hell! I won’t pull any punches here. Christians must become grounded in sound Biblical truths so as not to be easily led astray. Today there are literally thousands of “Christian” churches here in the United States, and several denominations, that are Christian in name only and have completely abandoned all sound traditional Christian doctrine.
You may have first heard about “collective salvation” from the infamous “Rev.” Sun Myung Moon in his 1997 address Personal Salvation and Collective Salvation. With the growth of religious pluralism over the last decade, much of Mainline Christianity seems to have blindly joined this chorus rooting for “collective salvation” while blissfully unaware that this is all part of the revolutionary move toward a new global church based upon the old Marxist notion of redistribution of wealth.
Below are excerpts from a variety of articles dealing with various aspects “collective salvation” as an integral part of the left’s assault on Christianity through misguided notions born of religious pluralism.
Those who teach this grave Theological error are promoting a socialistic community based upon Marxist thought. Read this excerpt from the Emergent Manifesto. Please note that the use of the term “emergent” when attached to Christian = progressive=leftist=Marxist thought.
This new collective spirituality leads people into a socialistic community where rituals, practices, and social justice become a means of salvation, but not the salvation you think of in a personal sense of being born-again through Jesus Christ. This is a collective salvation [1] that includes whole cultures and communities who follow the way of someone referred to as Jesus.

Here’s an excerpt from Pledging Your Moral Stand for Immigrants Rights

. . .Most church attendees have no idea of what’s actually going on behind the scenes in their particular denominations. There’s a certain comfort in knowing that you are worshiping in the same faith tradition as your parents and grandparents. Unfortunately, the only intact part of that traditional faith may be the denominational name. Few Christian parishioners have any idea where the money they donate actually ends up. Here’s a clue:
The money sent to ministries sponsored by the NCC go to support a variety of Social Justice values – many of which are clearly Marxist/socialistic values: communal salvation (as opposed to individual salvation), open borders, sanctuary for illegal aliens, an immediate end to the war in Iraq, and eradicating America’s Whiteness (White Privilege) once and for all. Warfare conducted by a nation (bad) is not viewed in the same light as a revolution (good). Social Justice, born of Marxist Liberation Theology, promotes the view that Jesus was a revolutionary leader and any revolution by an oppressed people against the established order is considered a Christian duty. Need I go on? . . .
Evangelicals should read “Treason in the Church”. Here’s an excerpt:
"Various churches and denominations claim to be undergoing 'transformation.' This word no longer refers to the humble sanctification of the individual believer. Rather, it now refers to an orchestrated, systemic and revolutionary overhaul of the global church, including the 'transformation' of cities, societies, cultures, marketplaces, and more. . ."
Meanwhile numerous mainline Protestant denominations and some evangelical churches are actively implementing the NCC’s: For the Peace of the World: A Christian Curriculum on International Relations
For a frightening overview of what is happening in many churches today right beneath our collective noses, please read: United Nations Entrenched Within Most Christian Denominations
Here’s an excerpt from The Road to Islamification is Paved by Religious Pluralism
Social Justice (as commonly understood today): Social justice mostly refers to an ideal of society, where "justice" refers to economic status rather than to the administration of laws. It is based on the idea of a society which gives individuals and groups fair treatment and a just share of the benefits of society, although what is "fair treatment" and a "just share" must remain unclear or subject to interpretation. . .

Think: Redistribution of wealth from wealthy (imperialistic) nations of the West to poor 3rd and 4th world nations.
Read this from Glenn Beck - July 9, 2010 Update
Obama: Individual salvation depends on collective salvation
It's a phrase he's mentioned a few times, but could explain much of why the President is jamming a Marxist agenda down the throats of Americans. He believes in collective salvation, and that's an idea straight out of the Jeremiah Wright playbook. Remember, Obama credits Jeremiah Wright with bringing him to faith. Glenn explains more about this ideology that is directly at odds with traditional Christianity. ( Transcript, Insider Audio)
GLENN: . . .Collective salvation, excuse me for being a Jesus freak, is from Satan. Collective salvation is from the devil, not God. And we have some audio of the president talking about his collective salvation. His personal salvation will not happen unless there is collective salvation, that is evil. . . .
STU: What does that even mean, collective salvation? How did he mean?
GLENN: Collective salvation, unless we all are saved, none will be saved, okay? Jesus came to save you, okay? Let me just give you the — real quick, you've got to take it back, you've got to take it back to the war in heaven. War in heaven with the angels and everything else, and they have this war and Lucifer says, "I'm going to save all of them. Just give me the glory." And God says, no, I don't think so. And he selects, he selects the plan of Christ which, I'm going to send a savior down and he will save each individual, okay? That's why he's — that's why God came — that's why, you know, God came down and saved the — saved us all because of individual salvation. You accept the atonement of Jesus Christ and you are saved. Collective salvation is, I can't be saved on my own, I can't be. I have to make sure and ensure everyone else's salvation and then we're all saved together. . . .
GLENN: This is the same way, this is the same thing that — this is the root of social justice. Social justice has to happen because we all are in this together. It also is the way that you can excuse killing cracker babies. You can kill millions of people because they don't get it, and if we don't get them out of the way, we can't all be saved. Now, this is the religious context. Now, not everybody who is — you know, most people who are like Stalin, they don't believe in the religious side. But the American social justice progressive, in the way the early 20th century or Jeremiah Wright understand collective salvation, this is it. And it is out and out evil. And I want you to hear what the president has said about his own salvation, how he cannot achieve it without collective salvation. We'll play that for you in about a half an hour. . . .
And Finally here is an excerpt from Michelle's Boot Camps For Radicals
Published 9/4/2008 in INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY
The Obamas discourage work in the private sector. "Don't go into corporate America," Michelle has exhorted youth. "Work for the community. Be social workers." Shun the "money culture," . . .
Barack added. "Individual salvation depends on collective salvation." . . .

  2. Nice article with valuable information, I hope many read it. You are absolutely correct. It has been coming for years.

    You don't hear much abut the Moonies in the media any more, but they still exist with their mass weddings, with Sun Yung Moon choosing your partner for you, it's like a dictatorship/commune combination.

    What is truly frightening is the downfall of what used to be mainstream churches and denominations.

  3. Any comment about the Bush family's close relationship with Rev. Moon? Didn't think so. I like to remind myself with Matthew 25 when I read posts from "nominal" Christians like yourself. You worship Mammon. Please admit that to yourselves and repent.

  4. here's an excerpt from the speech where President Obama talks about "collective salvation":

    Each of you will have the chance to make your own discovery in the years to come. And I say “chance” because you won’t have to take it. There’s no community service requirement in the real world; no one forcing you to care. You can take your diploma, walk off this stage, and chase only after the big house and the nice suits and all the other things that our money culture says you should by. You can choose to narrow your concerns and live your life in a way that tries to keep your story separate from America’s.
    But I hope you don’t. Not because you have an obligation to those who are less fortunate, though you do have that obligation. Not because you have a debt to all those who helped you get here, though you do have that debt.
    It’s because you have an obligation to yourself. Because our individual salvation depends on collective salvation. Because thinking only about yourself, fulfilling your immediate wants and needs, betrays a poverty of ambition. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential and discover the role you’ll play in writing the next great chapter in America’s story.

    I think all good Christians should be like Christ and look beyond themselves. After all Christ didn't just try to save himself, he wanted to save all of us.

  6. There are a number of doctrines that most traditional Protestants and Catholics share in common. One of these is that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS COLLECTIVE SALVATION!
