New church movement explained By JOHN EDWARDS CAUSA is, a new educational move- ment working on a global scale. We strongly oppose communism (atheism). We do not consider ourselves to be merely "anti". Anti is not enough; to be passive and defensive will not solve the problem. What we need is a positive solution/a winning strategy. We need an ideological offensive. Our war against atheism is a war of ideas, the battleground is the hearts and minds of the people. Atheistic communism gets its power from faith in ideology. It was this power that defeated the U.S. in the Vietnam War, the communist assaulted the minds of the American people until we became confused and demoralized and was unable to carry on the fight. CAUSA worldview is a God centered ideology which does two essential things. First it totally exposes the lies and deceptions of communism. Second it presents a clear counterproposal to the communist view. The CAUSA worldview offers a complete solution to Atheism. It is our desire to fill the Churches with the people who have lost faith in the Church, for it is these people who the communist want. We wish to provide help to the ministers of these churches to help the poor and elderly. We go and pick up food from different warehouses and take it to the ministers who have expressed a concern to help the people. They in turn give it to those who they know who need help. We offer seminars to the ministers so they can give guidance to those who are confused about atheism, and what is the true intent of the communist. Why was prayer taken out of schools? Why did the morality go down after prayer was taken out? The communists know the only way to defeat us is by weakening our faith in God. If you wish more information please contact a minister closest tO you, he will know how to contact the staff of CAUSA here in Tangipahoa Parish. were also finalized for the upcoming Succow.
