I’ve seen Christians in Singapore place #BLM #Blacklivesmatter hashtags on their social media posts because, in doing so, they think that they are supporting racial rights.
However, I wish Christians here to be aware that Black Lives Matter is Marxism/Communism in camouflage.
In a video from 2015, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists”. Cullors herself had spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview. (https://nypost.com/2020/06/25/blm-co-founder-describes-herself-as-trained-marxist/)
A central tenet in Marxism is class struggle (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Class_conflict), which Marxists have in the past leveraged on to bring about radical social and political changes for the majority of the population.
Similarly, many protests involving BLM have been violent (indeed, the movement has never absolved itself from violence or anarchy), and by means of violence and anarchy, BLM is hammering down its vision of society for the rest of the population, using racism to justify their violence.
Recently, it has been reported that BLM has started burning bibles in Portland (https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2020/08/02/burning-bibles-in-portland-shows-their-true-colors/), a practice reminiscent in the Soviet Union during Communism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution_of_Christians_in_the_Soviet_Union), and in Communist China (https://www.foxnews.com/world/chinese-officials-burn-bibles-close-churches-force-christian-to-denounce-faith-amid-escalating-crackdown).
I’m not saying that everyone who supports BLM are Marxists. Rather, what I am saying that the movement’s ideological foundation is Marxism, and knowing the anti-Christian spirit behind Marxism, we should have nothing to do with BLM.
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14; NIV)
