Here are two excerpts; one from an interview of Saul Alinsky, and the other a dedication by Alinsky in his book “Rules for Radicals”. Alinsky states why his book was written, Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.

Alinsky died of a sudden, massive heart attack in 1972, on a street corner in Carmel, California, at the age of 63. Two months previously, he discussed life after death in his interview with Playboy:[4]

ALINSKY: ... if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell.


ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I've been with the have-nots. Over here, if you're a have-not, you're short of dough. If you're a have-not in hell, you're short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I'll start organizing the have-nots over there.

PLAYBOY: Why them?

ALINSKY: They're my kind of people.

 Here is the dedication by Alinsky in his book. Notice that he dedicated his book to the Devil.

 Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins -- or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom -- Lucifer.

-- Saul Alinsky

 Some Churches were even involved with and supported Alinsky. He traveled to California at the request of the San Francisco Bay Area Presbyterian Churches to help organize the black ghetto in Oakland. Hearing of his plans, "the panic-stricken Oakland City Council promptly introduced a resolution banning him from the city."[4]

Ps 14:1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.

This scripture describes Saul Alinsky perfectly. Why is Saul Alinsky of any importance? The Bible is no longer seen as the inerrant word of God such that even believers believe in a political system that takes. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.
