The modern age of rebellion against God was launched with the French Revolution in 1789. All communist and socialist revolutions are modeled after it. It came right after the American War for Independence, and was a “monkey see, monkey do” event. It was an attempt to gain freedom for the people, but “freedom” as defined by godless thinkers such as J. Rousseau and Voltaire. Freedom from God, morality and righteousness – and it was such a disaster, that to this day, the world has not recovered from it.
As Christians, we watch the modern news, and see many countries undergo regime changes. We must know to clearly tell apart a godless revolution from a truly popular desire to change the corrupt governments over them. Peter Hammond, a historian and missionary in South Africa, examines the fruits of this revolution to know if the tree is good or corrupt.
