Open borders sound so nice, don’t they? Just like Open Society Foundations, a grant-making network group founded by a man named George Soros. Before you assume I’m going post-Christmas fruitcake on you, it’s my goal to be honest and even-handed. His name is familiar–to varying degrees–to those on the political right and the political left. Controversy follows him and the truth is particularly hard to find because his organizations fund a wide variety of media outlets and also media accountability groups whose interests rarely have a disclaimer like the one provided by the Organization of News Ombudsmen, “which is an independent group of 60 news ombudsmen in 17 countries” in their acknowledgment of Soros funding of both Ombudsman and NPR (National Public Radio).
Soros is a source of concern for me as a Christian. Why? Because the truth shouldn’t be so hard to locate. Christians are called to be highly discerning and to know who we’re being yoked to. Soros is not a good yokefellow for any Christian.
But I’m not yoked,” you say.
Are you sure? Do you know who you’re dealing with?
If you, as an objective Christian, watch the 60 Minutes interview of him there should be a genuine unease in your spirit. He’s godless and admits it. But he calls himself a player and betrays the truth that there is a god he loves: money. He wields it as a weapon against world economies; he uses it not only for personal enrichment but to purchase political power; he controls other organizations with it, and he worships it.
Player sounds tame until you see how he plays.
Christians, do you really want to partner with this man? Many already are and just don’t know it. His “philanthropy” is overwhelmingly to his NGOs (non-governmental organizations) which sound good but link to chaos.
Reports are widespread saying his Open Society Foundations are behind the unrest in many countries and he tries to profit from it while his official spokespeople and those media watchdogs he funds say “Not.” Who do we believe?
Should the truth be that hard to find?
It wouldn’t be if he put his own true words out in the light of day. But where is he? Open Society Foundations may not be familiar to you. But other names acting in his stead are. Ever heard of David Brooks, Media Matters, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, or MoveOn.org?
From a variety of sources, there are reports that the chaos of masked rioters in Ferguson, Black Lives Matter in Baltimore, and Occupy Wall Street was funded by his NGOs to make nations “ungovernable.” So, kind of like money laundering, he comes out squeaky clean because he’s never front and center with the rioters. It’s just his money doing the dirty work behind the scenes, even paying to transport a migrant flood which tore down fences in Macedonia and additional influx that terrorizes Paris.
Yes, this same George Soros is often called a Nazi-collaborator because at the age of 14–adulthood for a Jewish male–he betrayed his Jewish brothers and sisters as the Nazis seized property and sent them to the gas chambers in Hitler’s Germany (story begins at the 7 minute mark in that 60 Minutes interview). Other reports say this same George Soros now funds the Islamic refugees pouring into little German towns. Some of them are planning attacks, plowing trucks into Christmas markets and elsewhere in Europe, raping Swedish women and UK children as permitted in their interpretation of the “religion of peace.”
What has blinded Christians and opened doors to their accepting such irreconcilable things if the Gospel is truly paramount to them? It’s disturbing, but frankly, it’s nothing new. Not even for pastors or priests.
Jeremiah 8:5 “Why then have these people turned away? Why does Jerusalem always turn away? They cling to deceit; they refuse to return. 6 I have listened attentively, but they do not say what is right. No one repents of his wickedness, saying, “What have I done?” Each pursues his own course like a horse charging into battle… 10b From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit. 11 They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. “Peace, peace,” they say, when there is no peace. 12 Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when they are punished, says the LORD… 15 We hoped for peace but no good has come, for a time of healing but there was only terror. 16 The snorting of the enemy’s horses is heard from Dan; at the neighing of their stallions the whole land trembles. They have come to devour the land and everything in it, the city and all who live there.”
Christians should not be blindsided by pretenses of good when the underbelly is as evil as the night seems long.
After all, the Bible tells us that the devil masquerades as an angel of light and prowls about like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Perhaps some bit of social good is sprinkled as Soros’ breadcrumbs on the Open Borders/Open Society path of destruction. Irrespective, true Christians are fools to play with such a player and to align themselves with someone whose truth is cloaked and whose god is apparently money.
Ephesians 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them … 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
