If you say you stand for God’s Word, the Bible, then you need to stand for all His words … properly.
The Australian Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) is an Australian libertarian think tank. This video exposes a major flaw in their underlying beliefs and how it undermines its centre-right political credibility.
In my books at bibleprotector.com/prophecy you will notice that I identify the movement known as Infidelity as the root of Modernism and various false ideologies today. This fact is known (more or less) by believing Protestant scholars (there are not many of these left).
The great break that the Infidelity of the Enlightenment got was the French Revolution. While English-speaking societies resisted the Infidelity of the French Revolution, it slowly seeped into the English-speaking West more and more, so that since the late 1960s it basically took over. Just look at the social revolution of circa 1968.
Now Rabbi Sacks (in the video) does identify some of these facts, and indeed sees that the godless approach (as manifested through what some Christian Fundamentalists term “secular humanism”) has indeed usurped a place in our society and culture, and is an enemy ideology which is now dominating Britain and America.
This also explains why many so-called Conservatives have shifted away from a Biblically-based worldview to one based on Enlightenment error (e.g. the philosopher J. S. Mill).
Libertarianism is the enemy of traditional Christianity. “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Cor. 3:17). It didn’t say that liberty was with the philosophers or with the rabbis (see 1 Cor. 2). The Christian Gospel is the solution to the problem Rabbi Sacks (in the video) identifies. The Christian Gospel says that the Jews who are now dimly aware shall be turned fully to the Christian Gospel. “Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.” (2 Cor. 3:16). They will understand the truth clearly and interpret the Scripture correctly when the vail is removed.
Western nations should be aware that Russia’s leading political genius, Alexander Dugin, claims to be a prophet. In his “role” as the grand Russian prophet, he has called that NATO should be destroyed.
The Bible explains what is going on in the world today.
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” (Daniel 8:23).
Certainly, it is possible for a person have have prophetic gifts. But what power is Dugin utalising to see and proclaim his vision of the future?
Mr Dugin is in fact promoting a Dark Enlightenment, which means, to turn back to pre-Enlightenment, pre-Modern ideas (e.g. traditional religion).
Now, the “dark sentences” of Daniel 8:23 carries the idea of obscurity.
“I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old” (Psalm 78:2). “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.” (Proverbs 1:5, 6).
In all this we see it is not bad to understand dark things, because there are things of God which have been hidden or little known for many years.
We can become understanding people, people of knowledge, by being opened to the Bible and connecting to the Spirit of God.

Truth is plainly written in the Scripture. It states, “he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.” (Daniel 11:30b). We are seeing all the things come into place in time and space that will fulfil this prophecy.
Attacking the greatness of Protestant English-speaking America with all kinds of bizarre conspiracy theories while not presenting the Gospel as the true remedy to rampant liberalism, infidelity and left-wing error is a big problem.
Of course, Russia is setting its greedy eyes upon Turkey, and the West can still resist the Russian bear at the moment… but for how long will there be Britons true, and the guns, men and money of the Americans too?
Our national identity and outlook of the world must be firmly based upon Scripture. While extremism may be on the ascent in Russia, and spreading fear within through internet propagandists, we can safely assert the correct interpretation of world events, and have hope through the Holy Ghost.
Alex Jones says that we are in a civil war, an information war. Dugin agrees.
But this war is really about whether the Scripture is true in what it says. Did Ezekiel and Daniel long ages ago really get it all right? do we really have every word of the prophets exactly accurately here in English that we can rely upon? is our believing-based interpretation correct?
The answer is yes, because very soon, certain nations are going to be agreeing with the true believers on this: “Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?” (Eze. 38:17).
That question cannot be asked without believers publicising the truth, accuracy and content of Scripture. The Scripture then is the most powerful weapon, a spiritual information sword, that can cut down any demagogue. Remember Alexander the not so Great after all.
Aleksandr Dugin, Russian political scientist, philosopher and upcoming voice of antichristianism, made the following points in a BBC interview:
1. Truth is relative.
2. If we insist that we have absolute truth, he would say that his truth is 100% true.
3. There are no facts, only interpretation.
This is a highly dangerous philosophy which stems from Enlightenment thinking, just as Thomas Paine insisted that his own mind was his own religion, now Dugin is giving the ultimate end of all modernistic philosophy which is that there is no universal, objective truth, just individual belief. In other words, what he says and believes is true is true. Not just true for him, but we cannot question someone else’s truth.
How can Dugin ever claim to have something superior to Western thought when, like Antiochus Epiphanes and Mohammad, his particular view is just an extreme fascist perversion of Western philosophical errors? After all, Antiochus took Western paganistic Jupiter-worship and perverted it to his own religion as forced upon the Jews. Again, Mohammad did nothing but take Ebionism and other heretical versions of Judaeo-Christianity and likewise perverted it to his own religion as forced upon Jews and Christians.
Dugin’s view is an Enlightenment view, as much as he might claim to be against Western liberalism.
Ecclesiastes 1:9, 10,
9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
If you are a born again Protestant Bible believing Christian you really need to believe, not only that there is an absolute truth, but also that Jesus promised us (from the Father) the means of absolute interpretation, the Holy Ghost.
Dugin seems more and more like that little horn, even sharing a name with the former big horn of the goat in Daniel 8, Alexander the Great.
Those who attack the King James Bible are way off in their attempted smears against it.
