Dan. 5:25---The Writing is on the Wall for America's Obscene Sodom and Gomorrah

"The handwriting is on the wall. You need only reflect on how a screaming mob managed to conjure up total surrender from Indiana Gov. Mike Pence so he would reject that state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Catholic Charities is closing its adoption services where same-sex marriage laws pressure them to reject their church’s teachings about marriage and family. Owners of businesses that serve the wedding industry are being forced to either scrap their consciences or shut their doors. Anti-discrimination lawsuits against churches that don’t perform same-sex marriages will undoubtedly increase."  (Stella Morabito, "15 Reasons 'Marriage Equality' is About Neither Marriage Nor Equality")

The writing on the wall is God’s Judgement upon America’s rising Sodom and Gomorrah, the work of depraved God-hating utopians for whom sado-masochism, bondage, and the public sharing of bodily fluids is openly practiced in some of America’s top hotels:

If you had plans to take your kids to downtown Cleveland over the weekend of April 25-28, don’t – unless you want them to receive a quick and nightmarish tutorial about where the “LGBTQ” agenda really takes America: into a filthy sewer where It’s a large orgy of homosexual males focused on “sado-masochism” and “bondage.” Think ropes, chains, erotic asphyxiation, suspension by hooks, cutting, etc….in the meeting rooms of the Westin, Hampton Inn, Cleveland Marriott, etc., there will be activities and “workshops” (a.k.a., orgies) involving blood, feces, urine, semen and – when people realize what they are doing – possibly vomit.” (Convention at Major U.S. Hotels Showcases Extreme Sexual Depravity, Linda Harvey, WND, April 4, 2019)

By the end of WW II progressive God-haters and like-minded revolutionaries had already begun the insidious work of disintegrating and transforming America from one nation under God into a banana republic run by gender-fluid moral imbeciles fueled by destructive impulses. A very similar transformation happened in Germany immediately prior to Nazis taking over that country and in Russia prior to its takeover by Communists. 

The first demands for normalization of lesbianism, pedophilia, pederasty, sodomy, transgender, same-sex marriage, sex reassignment surgery, and the right to cross-dress were not made in "progressively enlightened" post-Christian America but in Communist controlled Russia, as revealed in the article, "1920s Soviet Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals." It was also reported that masculinized, cross-dressing lesbians were rewarded with influential positions of authority and influence throughout academia, the Red Army, and in the cultural arena:  
 
"...women of the masculinized type (cross-dressing army commanders, for instance) were considered with fascination and indulgence." (workers.org) 
 
The same article bashes backward Christian America for not allowing the mainstreaming of gender-bending and perversion:
 
"That same year (1923) in the U.S., where anti-sodomy laws aimed to padlock closet doors, the FBI labeled anarchist Emma Goldman the most dangerous woman in America because of her vocal support for gay rights and other forms of social equality."

According to a pamphlet entitled "The Sexual Revolution in Russia," Soviet sexologists in the 1920s participated in the international movement for sexual reform that was later spearheaded by former President Obama, the State Department and many other federal departments:
 
" Soviet legislation bases itself on the following principle: it declares the absolute non-interference of the State and society into sexual matters as long as nobody is injured, and no ones interests are encroached upon. Concerning homosexuality, sodomy, and various other forms of sexual gratification, which are set down in European legislation as offenses against public morality---Soviet legislation treats these the same as so-called natural intercourse." (Soviet Union in the 1920s: Scientific, not Utopian, workers.org)

The Communist fantasy of a Godless, morals free utopia, populated by the androgynous New Man collapsed into a hellish nightmare. It was a scene straight out of hell: while at least sixty-million men, women and children were being tortured and murdered, hordes of conscienceless children of the Mother-Father State were wreaking havoc and crime upon cities and towns in tandem with an epidemic of lying, lawlessness, sex slavery, prostitution, bathroom culture and other forms of gross debauchery issuing in outright chaos over-spread Russia.
 
After years of revolution and famine the economy was severely damaged, and with the death of the family--the building block of society---both economy and culture collapsed. Too late, fantasy-believing Communist planners realized that without the family, there is no future. 
 
As the full-force of utopian madness fell upon Russia, revulsion and horror set in allowing a semblance of sanity to return, thus in a desperate attempt to revive the family, attempts were made to rein in easy divorce, abortion on demand and sexual debauchery. Divorce and abortion were made more difficult to acquire and by 1923, the homosexual right to harass straight men for sex became a crime. Then in 1927, the right to engage in sodomy was criminalized as was the right to keep bachi--cross-dressed, feminized boy dancers used as prostitutes. The death knell rang in 1934 when both homosexuality and prostitution were declared crimes punishable by up to 8 years in prison. (Women in the Soviet Union, Jen Pickard, Youth for International Socialism) 
 
The Soviet Unions birth-to-death rate continued to fall however, so by the 1980's Gorbachev attempted yet more reforms. In a desperate bid to undo dysfunctional gender-bending and restore natural male-female relations in hope of bringing the family back to life, a course entitled, "The Ethics and Psychology of Family Life" was introduced into schools and shown on television. Its objective was to reinforce traditional roles. Teachers were urged to "train and train again, girls to be girls and boys to be boys."(ibid) 

Shortly after President Reagan made his now famous 'evil empire' speech March 8, 1983, the Soviet Union imploded. Despite all reform efforts, Russia's birth-to-death replacement rate continued to fall. Confronted by the chilling prospect of a "dead" Russia, in a last ditch effort Vladimir Putin adopted a pro-birth policy that pays families to have at least a second child if not more. Additionally, stay-at-home mothers receive 40% of their former salary and families with two children will receive a lump sum of $9000.

At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a “godless nation.”  More than two decades on, history has come full circle, as the Kremlin and its allies in the Russian Orthodox Church hurl the same allegation at the West.   In a keynote speech Russian President Vladimir Putin said:

Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values...Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.”  (Divine Freedom Radio, Feb. 21, 2014)

In his state of the nation address in mid-December, Mr. Putin also portrayed Russia as a staunch defender of “traditional values” against what he depicted as the morally bankrupt West. Social and religious conservatism, the former KGB officer insisted, is the only way to prevent the world from slipping into “chaotic darkness.” As part of this defense of “Christian values,” Russia has adopted a law banning “homosexual propaganda” and another that makes it a criminal offense to “insult” the religious sensibilities of believers.

Mr. Putin’s views of the West were echoed by Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, the leader of the Orthodox Church who accused Western countries of engaging in the “spiritual disarmament” of their people. In particular, Patriarch Kirill criticized laws in several European countries that prevent believers from displaying religious symbols, including crosses on necklaces, at work:

The general political direction of the [Western political] elite bears, without doubt, an anti-Christian and anti-religious character...We have been through an epoch of atheism, and we know what it is to live without God...” “We want to shout to the whole world, ‘Stop!’”  “The separation of the secular and the religious is a fatal mistake by the West.... It is a monstrous phenomenon that has occurred only in Western civilization and will kill the West, both politically and morally.” (ibid)
 
Even as a dying Russia strives mightily to restore and protect the institutions of traditional marriage and family so that it might live, America---under pressure from obviously insane, godless Progressive utopianists---is steadfastly killing these vital life-giving institutions while simultaneously waging a war of attrition against their source: the Holy Triune God, the Bible and orthodox Christianity. In the name of scientism, Darwinism, progress, change, tolerance, inclusion, diversity, and orientation, America is casting herself into the very grave from which Russia seeks escape, hence the writing on the wall. (Dan. 5:25)

The "New" Post-Homophobic Christianity

In the wake of the Supreme Court Obergefell v. Hodges  ruling a collection of celebrities in Hollywood and professional American athletes rejoiced over the decision.   Olympic figure skater Johny Weir wrote, Marriage equality in all 50 states! Congratulations America! Brimming with pride.  Football player Scott Fujita tweeted, Resist the urge to engage in debate with those in opposition to equality. There is NO MORE debate. Just rejoice and celebrate this moment.  Pop icon Madonna tweeted, “Finally And at Last! The Revolution Of Love has Begun! #livingforlove #rebelheartsunite”  While former Disney Channel actress turned music star, Demi Levota wrote, “I couldn’t be more proud to be an American today… What an incredible day for equality!!!!”   (1)

In "The New Post-Homophobic Christianity," a triumphant Sally Kohn notes that since the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges  the vast majority of Americans are saying, “Hallelujah!” With the endorsement of "Gay Pride" by the Episcopalian Church, the Presbyterian Church (USA) and many other major Christian denominations, post-homophobic Christianity  is indeed the new normal in America:  

"The world has changed. Christians and Christianity has changed, too. And again, I say, “Hallelujah!”  (thedailybeast, July 5, 2015)

Where compromising churches in Hitler's Germany proudly displayed Mein Kampf on altar tables next to the Cross of Christ, their counterpart today proudly flash the "Gay Pride" rainbow flag and like rainbow colored Pied Pipers lead the way in the “Open and Affirming” church movement that is sweeping through our nation like wildfire. 

In contrast to elated "Gay Pride" celebrants  the highly respected pastor John MacArthur soberly pointed out that no human court has the authority to redefine marriage, and the verdict does not change the God ordained reality of marriage. God was not defeated in this ruling.   Moreover, warned MacArthur, every marriage will be judged according to biblical grounds on the last day. Nothing will prevail against Him (Proverbs 21:30) and nothing will thwart the advance of His Kingdom (Dan. 4:35).  (An Open Letter to TMS Alumni, John MacArthur)

The Word of God has pronounced judgment on any nation that would reclassify evil as good, darkness as light, and bitter as sweet (Isaiah 5:20). Romans 1 clearly identifies the evidence for the wrath of God on a nation:

"...sexual immorality followed by homosexual immorality culminating in a reprobate mind. This most recent step reminds us that God’s wrath has come in full. We now see reprobate minds at every level of leadership – in the Supreme Court, the presidency, cabinet, legislature, press and culture." (ibid)

Though this looks to be the end of the America we have known and loved it is not the end of the story.  Whether we are in the next to the last chapter or the final chapter the heaven bound have the blessed assurance of already knowing how the story ends, meaning that for the heaven bound this veil of tears is the closest they will ever come to hell.  

But for the hell bound (Psalm 5: 9-10) the story ends differently.   In this world their choices reside in their own ever-unfolding menu of privileges which they call 'rights,' their own politically correct version of the Golden Rule and of what constitutes good, such as their 'choice' to deny life to the inconvenient, to practice their own pansexual 'love,' and to live parasitic lives at the expense of the productive. As they are not fallen but morally-perfect and autonomous they travel their own sovereign roads and expect the God of Revelation and everyone else to accept and tolerate them — to put up and shut up. This being the case, they resent the living God and blame Him for not accepting them just as they are, for not jumping through hoops for them, for not seeing things their way.  Therefore the Lord has given them what they want, meaning one life-time in this rapidly decaying world.  Thus this veil of tears is the closest thing to heaven they will ever experience.

Darwinism: Idol of Mind Symbolizing Hatred of Triune Creator God and Logical End of America

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma."   (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser)

As Pannekoek affirms, Darwin's mythological miracle-producing life and change-making evolutionary energy has destroyed the entire foundation of Christian theism. In supplanting Genesis 1-11, it has also destroyed biblical infallibility, transcendent moral law, sexual ethics, the gospel claims of Jesus Christ, and imago Dei, the source of man’s personhood and innate dignity.

In destroying the foundations of Christianity Darwinism has also destroyed the foundations of our Constitutional Republic, and by extension, America’s traditional culture.

In The 5000 Year Leap, author Cleon Skousen writes that most Americans in the early years of our Republic truly regarded the Constitution as a miracle, declaring that the formation and adoption of our new system of federal government represented a political achievement unprecedented in human history.

The Founders believed the Constitution was destined to bless all mankind, and that it was incumbent on their successors to preserve and defend our national charter.

Skousen details the 28 great ideas utilized by the Founders in the formulation of our Republic. While some were derived from the Romans and others from the Anglo-Saxons, the greatest and most important ideas are Biblical.  Of these the unique Biblical view of mankind is absolutely vital, for it’s precisely from this - the most radical view of man ever known in human history - that our personhood, liberties and rights derive.

In this view, man is an animal only in the sense that his body is of the natural realm. Spiritually, he transcends or rises above the natural realm because he is an embodied soul/spirit, and it is this part of him, his being, that is made in the spiritual image of his transcendent Creator (John 1).

Man thinks, reasons, and loves because his personal Tri-Personal Creator thinks, reasons, and loves. Unique to man is free will. He can choose to lie or tell the truth; to give into bad impulses or not give into them; to seek truth, beauty and goodness, or conversely, to seek lies, ugliness, and evil. 

Divinely endowed, mankind - unlike all other creatures - is capable of self-government so long as his ability to reason is morally informed at all times. There are only two created sexes, male and female, and there is only one human race. As all men are the creatures of the living Creator, not only do they comprise a spiritual brotherhood, but they are obviously meant to be free.

All of these truths were known by the Founders to be immutable, that is, good everywhere, in all times and not subject to change.  All together, these immutable truths were encapsulated by the Founders like this:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – Declaration of Independence

The Founders vigorously affirm throughout their writings, said Skousen,  

"that the foundation of all reality is the existence of the Creator, who is the designer of all things in nature and the promulgator of all the laws which govern nature. ” (A Miracle that Changed the World: The 5000 Year Leap, Principles of Freedom, p. 101)

The Triune Creator God is uncreated, eternally existing Reality. All else is His created reality. Scripture is clear that the work of creation ‘is always applied…to the whole, entire, full, complete Godhead,’ (1) meaning all three Persons of the Trinity. The Genesis account of creation ex nihilo reveals that man is a person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons. As a person man is endowed with innate dignity because created directly by the Creator God of Gen. 1 identified by the Apostle John as the Son of God (John 1:1). Thus primordial man was created with a superhuman intelligence and original nature from which Adam, hence all of us, fell away and to which we are called back.

But in declaring the death of the Foundation of all reality, wicked God-haters have undermined and brought down everything built upon that Foundation, thus “what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3)

Darwinism: Revitalized Pagan Myth

Darwin's materialist idea, which he received from his pagan grandfather, originated in the metaphysics of the ancient Ionians and Stoics during the sixth century BC while Teilhard de Chardin's spiritualized conception leapfrogs off of Darwin’s materialism into Vedanta monism. Both conceptions bristle with hostility toward and hatred of the living Holy Triune God, creation ex nihilo, and faithful orthodox Christianity. In their rejection of the Genesis account they teach instead a toxic dehumanizing inverted exegesis positing that man comes up from chemicals and lower creatures.

This upside-down view leads to three more poisons: a philosophy of relativism (hatred of truth), identity politics and intersectionality.  These poisons and many more are spawns of Darwinism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter, and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are humans going to become something else – maybe a divine superman, god-man, or super robot – but nothing can be said about multiple human races, the pedophile project, LGBTQ+ and the contemporary menu of 15-56 genders since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter that spontaneously generated itself from nothing.

With regard to soul/spirit, if man evolved from non-living, genderless matter or energy and lower life forms, then his rational nature differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts. Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth. Like them he has no spirit – free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience. He is a fleshy robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

The disintegration of man’s dignity as a creature of God is not the result of science, as evolutionary naturalists falsely claim, but rather the product of a depraved conscience that justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of freedom. It is hostility and outright hatred of the Holy God and His image-bearers disguised behind linguistic sophistry, the Orwellian-speak of rebellious, God-haters.

In the resulting void, everything—no matter how depraved– is now possible:

"Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated. The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit; he has ceased to act wisely and do good. He plots trouble while on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not reject evil." Psalm 36: 1-4 ESV

Nihilism

As a fortress of nihilism (meaninglessness), deconstruction and inversion, Darwinism conceptually transforms the seed of God into the seed of Satan within churches that embrace evolutionary theism:

"Darwin pointed out that no supernatural designer was needed; since natural selection could account for any known form of life, there was no room for a supernatural agency in its evolution."(Issues in Evolution, Julian Huxley, p. 45)  

"Evolution comprises all the stages of the development of the universe: the cosmic, biological, and human or cultural developments" (Changing Man, Theodosius Dobzhansky, 'Science, Vol. 155' Jan. 27, 1967, p. 409)

"Most enlightened persons now accept as a fact that everything in the cosmos — from heavenly bodies to human beings — has developed and continues to develop through evolutionary processes."(Humanistic Biology, Rene Dubos, American Scientist, Vol. 53, March, 1965, p. 6)

Darwinism and/or evolutionary thinking disguises its' hatred of the Holy Triune God and His image bearers by deceptively cloaking its’ true nature in the ‘kings new clothes’ of empirical science.   D. M. S. Watson, the Jodrell Professor of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy at University College, London (1921 to 1951) tacitly concurs. He publicly confessed that evolution,

“ . . . is accepted by zoologists not because it has been observed to occur or . . . can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible.” (December 10, 2011 by Vishal Mangalwadi, revelationmovement.com)

Evolution: A Myth From Hell

Evolution is a myth from hell promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance. Today evolution is a full-fledged anti-God, anti-creation alternative to orthodox Christianity.

“the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.... Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity." Michael Ruse

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned Christian researchers, apologists, and other watchmen have been pointing to the connections between Darwin's evolutionary theory and a spreading epidemic of narcissism, psychopathy, lying, power grabbing and lawlessness. In its turn this epidemic of evil fuels the debauchery, sexual perversion, hatred, despair, paranoia, psychosis, apathy and other spiritual pathologies underlying the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn and just born here in America, the malicious sexual perversion of our children, rampant hedonism, sodomy, crime, and rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use in the Godless 'evolutionized' West.

But for the most part, the warnings of watchmen have been ignored, derided, and mercilessly ridiculed by ignorant, hedonistic masses of Americans and haters of Jesus Christ.  Increasingly, this is also the case within the whole body of the church.   From the Roman Catholic to Eastern Orthodox, Southern Baptist, and Reformed church, evolutionary thinking is supplanting the absolute Authority and inerrant Word of God:

"which (Pope Francis) refers to as “beings of the universe” - has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” He explained how the Catholic Church views the Big Bang and evolution as scientific processes underpinned by “the plan of the creator.” Pope Francis has officially moved the Catholic Church away from the idea of “God the creator..." (Pope endorses evolution of alien life & UFO activity as part of God's plan, Michael Salla, The Examiner, Oct. 28, 2014)

“…Christians who are seeking to correlate Scripture and science must be a ‘bigger tent’ than either the anti-scientific religionists or the anti-religious scientists. Even though in this paper I argue for the importance of belief in a literal Adam and Eve, I have shown here that there are several ways to hold that and still believe in God using EBP (evolutionary biological processes)”  (Creation, Evolution, and Christian Laypeople, Tim Keller, The Biologos Foundation)

The Logical End of America

Most of what contemporary Russia has to tell us about the violent, murderous evil in man’s nature and his hatred of the Creator God and Truth, can be seen in Solzhenitsyn who warns that once the God of Revelation has been removed from men’s lives, it means the logical end of modern Western and American history.  In other words, totalitarian Communism and Gulag were not merely Russian experiments but rather the end of all people who remove the Triune God of Revelation from the center of life, as is increasingly the case here in America.

What happened in Russia under Marxist Communism has already killed the soul of Western Europe and is even now in the last stages of poisoning the soul of America. Thus America and the West are also facing Russia's hatred for the Triune God, orthodox Christians, and faithful Jews in a satanic phenomenon of state atheism and its politically correct Gulag.  This is the message Solzhenitsyn presented in his American addresses.  In his Harvard commencement in 1978 he castigated America for its loss of will, loss of truth, and loss of morality as well as its’ love of lies, pleasure, hedonism and materialism together with its satisfaction with legalism in human relations.

As godlessness in tandem with Darwinism advances over the West and America, destructive and irresponsible freedom is granted boundless space, and even defined as Constitutional rights.  Thus Western and American society said Solzhenitsyn, has little defense against the abyss of human decadence:

Communism has infected the whole world with the belief in the relativity of good and evil…  Among enlightened people it is considered rather awkward to use seriously such words as ‘good’ and ‘evil.’  But if we are to be deprived of the concepts of good and evil, what will be left?  Nothing but the manipulation of one another.  We will decline to the status of animals.”

Solzhenitsyn warned America to wake up and learn from those who have suffered.  Return to the Holy Creator God and America’s orthodox Christian and moral roots and stand firmly in the spiritual war of good against evil. 

Repentance: the Beginning of the Cure

In his 1974 essay “Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations,” Solzhenitsyn explains that the cure begins quite simply with,

repentance and the search for our own errors and sin.  We must stop blaming everyone else (and) always claiming that we alone are in the right.  Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord.  Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth.  For each and every individual.  And every trend of social thought.”  (Life Under the Lidless Eye, pp. 38-39, Lee Penn, SCP Journal, Vol. 37:1-37:2, 2013)

As Pannekoek affirms, Darwin's miracle-producing life and change-making evolutionary energy has destroyed the foundation of Christian theism since for the most part it has supplanted the historic Genesis account of creation, and by extension, biblical infallibility, the Triune God’s unchanging moral law, the gospel claims of Jesus Christ, sexual ethics, and imago Dei, the source of man’s personhood and innate dignity.

Darwinism has also destroyed the foundations of our Constitutional Republic, and by extension, America’s traditional culture, so as the Psalmist asks,

As a fortress of nihilism (meaninglessness), deconstruction and inversion, Darwinism completely inverts the Genesis account thereby rendering meaningless the entirety of Scripture. In this way it conceptually transforms the seed of God into the seed of Satan within churches that embrace evolutionary theism:

"Darwin pointed out that no supernatural designer was needed; since natural selection could account for any known form of life, there was no room for a supernatural agency in its evolution."(Issues in Evolution, Julian Huxley, p. 45)  

"Evolution comprises all the stages of the development of the universe: the cosmic, biological, and human or cultural developments" (Changing Man, Theodosius Dobzhansky, 'Science, Vol. 155' Jan. 27, 1967, p. 409)

"Most enlightened persons now accept as a fact that everything in the cosmos — from heavenly bodies to human beings — has developed and continues to develop through evolutionary processes."(Humanistic Biology, Rene Dubos, American Scientist, Vol. 53, March, 1965, p. 6)

Darwinism and/or evolutionary thinking disguises its' hatred of the Holy Triune God and His image bearers by deceptively cloaking its’ true nature in the ‘kings new clothes’ of empirical science.   D. M. S. Watson, the Jodrell Professor of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy at University College, London (1921 to 1951) tacitly concurs. He publicly confessed that evolution,

“. . . is accepted by zoologists not because it has been observed to occur or . . . can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible.” (December 10, 2011 by Vishal Mangalwadi, revelationmovement.com)

Evolution: A Myth From Hell

Evolution is a myth from hell promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance. Today evolution is a full-fledged anti-God, anti-creation alternative to orthodox Christianity.

"...the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.... Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity." Michael Ruse

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned Christian researchers, apologists, and other watchmen have been pointing to the connections between Darwin's evolutionary theory and a spreading epidemic of narcissism, psychopathy, lying, power-grabbing and lawlessness. In its turn this epidemic of evil fuels the debauchery, sexual perversion, hatred, despair, paranoia, psychosis, apathy and other spiritual pathologies underlying the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn and just born here in America, the malicious sexual perversion of our children, rampant hedonism, sodomy, crime, and rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use in the Godless 'evolutionized'  West.

But for the most part, their warnings have been ignored, derided, and mercilessly ridiculed by ignorant, hedonistic masses of Americans and haters of Jesus Christ.  Increasingly, this is also the case within the whole body of the church.   From the Roman Catholic to Eastern Orthodox, Southern Baptist, and Reformed church, evolutionary thinking is supplanting the absolute Authority and inerrant Word of God:

"....which (Pope Francis) refers to as “beings of the universe” - has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” He explained how the Catholic Church views the Big Bang and evolution as scientific processes underpinned by “the plan of the creator.” Pope Francis has officially moved the Catholic Church away from the idea of “God the creator..." (Pope endorses evolution of alien life & UFO activity as part of God's plan, Michael Salla, The Examiner, Oct. 28, 2014)

“…Christians who are seeking to correlate Scripture and science must be a ‘bigger tent’ than either the anti-scientific religionists or the anti-religious scientists. Even though in this paper I argue for the importance of belief in a literal Adam and Eve, I have shown here that there are several ways to hold that and still believe in God using EBP (evolutionary biological processes)”  (Creation, Evolution, and Christian Laypeople, Tim Keller, The Biologos Foundation)

The Logical End of America

Most of what contemporary Russia has to tell us about the violent, murderous evil in man’s nature and his hatred of the Creator God and Truth, can be seen in Solzhenitsyn who warns that once the God of Revelation has been removed from men’s lives, it means the logical end of  modern Western and American history.  In other words, totalitarian Communism and Gulag were not merely Russian experiments  but rather the end of all people who remove the God of Revelation from the center of life as is increasingly the case here in America.

As evolutionary humanism, it's theological counterparts and hatred of truth cast their nets over America,  Christian conviction in the Revelation of our Heavenly Father, creational norms, sin, moral absolutes, and the Gospel of Christ are fading to black.

What happened in Russia under Marxist Communism has already killed the soul of Western Europe and is even now in the last stages of poisoning the soul of America. Thus America and the West are also facing Russia's hatred of the Triune God, orthodox Christian, and faithful Jew phenomenon of state atheism and its politically correct Gulag.  This is the message Solzhenitsyn presented in his American addresses.  In his Harvard commencement in 1978 he castigated  America for its loss of will, loss of truth, and loss of morality as well as its’ love of lies, pleasure, hedonism and materialism together with its satisfaction with legalism in human relations.

As godlessness in tandem with Darwinism advances over the West and America, destructive and irresponsible freedom is granted boundless space, and even defined as Constitutional rights.  Thus Western and American society said Solzhenitsyn, has little defense against the abyss of human decadence:

Communism has infected the whole world with the belief in the relativity of good and evil…  Among enlightened people it is considered rather awkward to use seriously such words as ‘good’ and ‘evil.’  But if we are to be deprived of the concepts of good and evil, what will be left?  Nothing but the manipulation of one another.  We will decline to the status of animals.”

Solzhenitsyn warned America to wake up and learn from those who have suffered.  Return to the Holy Creator God and America’s orthodox Christian and moral roots and stand firmly in the spiritual war of good against evil. 

Repentance: the Beginning of the Cure

In his 1974 essay “Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations,” Solzhenitsyn explains that the cure begins quite simply with,

“…..repentance and the search for our own errors and sin.  We must stop blaming everyone else (and) always claiming that we alone are in the right.  Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord.  Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth.  For each and every individual.  And every trend of social thought.”  (Life Under the Lidless Eye, pp. 38-39, Lee Penn, SCP Journal, Vol. 37:1-37:2, 2013)

Isaiah 57 Revisited: America's Progressive Pagan Elites, Their Depraved Followers and Human Sacrifice

America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of the world, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Gen. 1:1) “...in His own image He made them, male and female He made them...I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..." (Gen. 1:27) "I am the Lord your God...” (Isaiah 41:13)  Our Constitutional rights, beginning with the most important one, the God-given right to life, flow from this Biblical seedbed, thus because human beings are the spiritual image bearers of the Lord, throughout Christianized Western civilization there exist strict prohibitions against murder and human sacrifice.

The pagan world however, has never shared Western sensibilities. Throughout history in many parts of the world, pagans have performed unimaginably sadistic human sacrifices as a way of pleasing or appeasing their mythological gods.

For example, in 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death.

The actual rite of child sacrifice at Carthage has been graphically described by Diodorus Siculus:

"There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)

Plutarch, a first and second century A.D. Greek author, adds to the description:

"...the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people." ibid

Except in method, the Mayans were no different in this regard. Inscribed stones bear witness to the Mayan practice of human sacrifice--- adult male, female and child:

"The common method for human sacrifice seems to have been for the "ah nacom" (a functionary) to extract the heart quickly, while 4 people associated with Chac, the rain/lightning god, held the struggling victim's limbs. Human sacrifices seem to have been made, as well, with arrows, by flaying, decapitation, hurling from a precipice, and throwing the victim into a limestone sinkhole."  (Human Sacrifice and the Maya, N.S. Gill, ancienthistory.about.com)

As evil as this was, the Maya were amateurs in comparison to Aztecs when it came to human sacrifice on a massive scale:

The Aztecs of Central. Mexico, many years later, once sacrificed twenty thousand people in a single ceremony to commemorate the dedication of a new temple. Then they ate them." (Maya Human Sacrifice...Say it isn't so, ambergriscaye.com)

The kind of human sacrifice practiced by the Aztecs involved the use of large boulders against which the victims would be placed:

" The victims would be forced to lean back against the stone, causing their chests to protrude to make it easier for the pagan priests to slice open their chests, reach in, yank out a still beating heart and eat it. The hair of the priests were matted with blood, and the walls of temples themselves were soaked inside and out with human blood, as if they had been streaked and splattered with red paint. " (Planned Parenthood and the Aztecs, Bryan Fischer, OneNewsNow, Thursday, August 20, 2015)

Isaiah 57: Religious and Social Elites, Their Depraved Followers, and Human Sacrifice

In his highly acclaimed book, "Nazi Oaks," Pastor R. Mark Musser turns to Isaiah 57 where the prophet records the rejection of the Holy Creator God by Jewish religious and social leaders and their depraved followers in favor of the mythological Canaanite evolutionary nature religion. The subsequent loss of spiritual leadership results in deification of man, occultism, and sadistically evil human sacrificial rituals where children are burned to death as offerings to Ba’al, a Canaanite god (1):

They have built high places to Baal on which to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal--something I never commanded or mentioned, nor did it ever enter My mind.”  Jeremiah 19:5

These sadistic evils together with other forms of depravity led to the suicidal demise of the nation where the righteous man perishes,
 
 ".... and no man takes it to heart; and the devout men are taken away, while no one understands.  For the righteous man is taken away from evil." (Isaiah 57: 1)
 
 While children were burned to death and good, faithful people were rejected, scorned, ridiculed, persecuted, imprisoned, impoverished, terrorized, murdered and otherwise die and taken away to paradise, on earth no one replaces them.  Left behind were the depraved counter culture rebels of society--evolutionary pagan religious and social elites and their depraved, destructive followers:
 
"Against whom do you jest?  Against whom do you open wide your mouth and stick out your tongue?  Are you not children of rebellion, offspring of deceit, who inflame among yourselves among the oaks, under every luxuriant tree, who slaughter the children in ravines, under the clefts of the crags?"  (Isaiah 57: 4-5)
 
Here is seen defiant rejection of the Holy Creator God, creational norms, Truth and Moral Law resulting in unfettered evil, worship of divine evolving forces of nature, shameless sexual perversion, sadism, and child sacrifice practiced by depraved mass man and the cultivated crowd, the elites of society, and all of it "rolled up into one outdoor whore house of death." (Musser, p. 49)

Isaiah 57: 4-5 Slaughter of Babies

As evil as Jehovah-rejecting Jews, Carthaginians, Mayans, Aztecs, and other pagans were, they were rank amateurs when compared to America’s sadistically depraved Progressive pagan elites. Rather than slaughtering babies in ravines or burning them to death in Moloch ovens American babies are barbarically murdered according to precise scientific procedures calling for the suctioning out of the brains of living babies or burning babies to death from the inside out while within the womb:

“Partial birth abortion was publicly unveiled in 1992. This method is used to kill babies from 20 weeks through full term. Because the baby is considerably larger and more well developed at this time, the opening of the woman's cervix must be greatly enlarged in order to perform this abortion. The entire process requires three days…The amniotic fluid is drained and all but the baby’s head is pulled out of the birth canal. The abortionist uses a sharp pair of surgical scissors to stab the base of the living baby's skull, spreading the scissors to enlarge the hole. The scissors are removed and a suction tube is inserted into the skull opening to “evacuate” the brain. This kills the baby and collapses the head, allowing the abortionist to fully deliver the child.” (New York State Leads the Way in Advocating Murder in the Womb, Pastor Steve Rowitt, Ph.D., Creation Studies Institute)

“…Saline Injection Abortion (or salt poisoning abortion) may be used after sixteen weeks when enough fluid has accumulated in the amniotic sac surrounding the baby. A long needle is inserted through the mother's abdomen to remove and then replace some of the amniotic fluid with a solution of concentrated salt. The baby breathes in and swallows the solution and usually dies in one to two hours - though sometimes death takes many hours - from salt poisoning, dehydration, convulsions, hemorrhages of the brain and failure of other organs. The baby is literally burned inside and out by the strong salt solution.” (Ibid)

When it comes to human sacrifice on a massive scale the Aztecs occupy the peanut gallery when compared to the United States.  According to the National Right to Life, since 1973 there have been 60, 069, 971 estimated abortions in the United States.

Further Evils: Cannibalization of Body Parts

With the return of human sacrifice there comes cannibalization of body parts:

We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not going to crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, I’m going to crush above, and I’m going to see if I can get it all intact….”   (Deborah Nucatola, MD, Director of Medical Services, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, July 25, 2014)

When negotiating about fetal tissue, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services talks about a “less crunchy technique” for keeping body parts intact during a partial-birth abortion. She says the price, “has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me,” at one point explaining “I want a Lamborghini.”  (‘Don’t Want to Lowball’ Baby Parts; Another Planned Parenthood Official on Tape, Kathryn Jean Lopez, nationalreview.com, July 21, 2015)

An undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) shows that the pagan rituals of the Aztecs have returned from the bowels of Hades with a vengeance.  It reveals the gruesome reality that babies,

"... are born alive in Planned Parenthood abortuaries, and then laid on tables with their tiny little hearts still visibly beating in their chests. The abortionist then takes a pair scissors and cuts the face of the baby in two so that its brain can be extracted, a procedure that starts while the baby is still alive." (ibid, Fischer)

Leading stem cell researchers believe that the evidence uncovered by CMP indicates that in order to send fresh specimens to researchers, Planned Parenthood keeps some babies,

"... alive right up until the moment their hearts are cut out of their bodies. This is because a heart is only good for research if it can be prepped for shipping within five minutes of death." ibid

In light of this ongoing evil, if death is knocking on someone’s door unless they receive an organ transplant, then why not slaughter a child in order that its organs can be harvested since it’s permissible to harvest body parts from babies?  Wesley J. Smith reports on this latest evil:

The first case of a child being trafficked to Britain in order to have their organs harvested has been uncovered.  The unnamed girl was brought to the UK from Somalia with the intention of removing her organs and selling them to those desperate for a transplant.  Child protection charities warned that the case was unlikely to be an isolated incident as traffickers were likely to have smuggled a group of children into the country.” (Officials Discover Child Trafficked from Somalia to UK to Harvest Her Organs, Smith, Life News, Oct. 20, 2013)

While America's Progressive elites and their depraved followers are very vocal when it comes to saving snail darters, owls, trash fish, alligators and wolves at the expense of human flourishing they generally rationalize murder of unborn humans on the lie that the unborn are not human but rather clumps of uterine cells in process of evolution.    Accordingly, unborn humans are not human when being suctioned, snipped, torn apart, crushed, and burned alive in saline solutions.  However the unborn magically transform into humans when their lungs, hearts, heads, and other body parts are coveted by well-funded pagans for research purposes.

The Satanic Creed of Evolutionary Progressivism

Do not forget that the fundamental contrast has always been, is still, and always will be until the end: Christianity and Paganism, the idols or the living God.” Abraham Kuyper, The Stone Lectures, Princeton Seminary, 1898 (cited in Pagans in the Pews, Peter Jones, p.32)

At the outbreak of the modern era, the (Progressive gnostic pagan) system of inverse biblical exegesis was once again activated.”  Ioan Couliano, “The Tree of Gnosis”

This inverse exegesis from hell begins with evolution, which has persuaded people,

 “...to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation.”  Such inverse thinking means it is now impossible for educated Westerners to conceive of Biblical revelation because “in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future.”  (Franklin Baumer, “The Making of the New Spirituality, James Herrick, p. 150)

Throughout paganized America inverse evolutionary origin accounts and pagan and occult pantheist ideologies of monism are now the reigning views of reality.

Monism, or continuity (also oneness), is the ruling idea in all ancient and modern mythological nature religions going back to Babylon.  It is also the essence of Progressive spirituality. In the Progressive worldview reality is the idea that the universe is a quantum energy field of undifferentiated divine creative energy in motion (evolution).  From ancient times the serpent biting its tail has symbolized the energy field while the serpent is the symbol of the universe’s creative evolutionary energies (serpent power). According to this view of reality God is not outside of the universe in the third heaven but rather God (the divine serpent) is the universe. God (the divine serpent) is within the circle thus within certain highly evolved elite pagans, demonstrating that "the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” 1 John 5:19

Polytheism

Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' satanic Progressive spirituality declares that the Biblical Creator God and sin are scientifically-passé and that both elites and their depraved followers are gods or goddesses in process of evolution.

 Millions of human-deities, each with their own personal truths, moralities, and multiple and ever evolving 'genders'---this is pagan polytheism issuing in idolatry of self, pursuit of pleasure, leisure, status, and power.  Moreover, it is escape from suffering by whatever means since if sin (the Biblical answer to  man’s suffering) is a myth and the supreme evil is individual suffering then why should the man who envies God the Father not conceptually murder Him and seize His powers for his own agenda? Or why should abortionists, pornographers, pedophiles, transgenders, and Western ‘elites’ have to suffer the restraints placed on them by immutable truth, created norms, the Ten Commandments, Constitution, pro-lifers and other law-abiding Conservatives?   This is why America’s Progressive elites and their depraved followers:

“.... will invariably (and) inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. When I say the Modern Liberal is morally and intellectually retarded at the level of the five-year old child, it is not hyperbole: its diagnosis.” (Evan Sayet, The Kindergarten of Evil) 

This they do because they cannot sleep unless they do evil and make someone fall "since they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.” Proverbs 4: 16-17

How does such evil begin?  As Isaiah tragically details, it begins with the rejection of the Triune God, creational norms, Truth, and His Law (John 15:12).  Where there is no love for Father there is no love for brother. (1st and 2nd Commandments):

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbor as thyself." Luke 10:27

The end of the commandment is charity (love) from a pure and humble heart, a good conscience and unfeigned faith. (1 Thess. 1:5) He that loves his neighbor fulfills the law for his heart is not blackened by thoughts of hate and murder:

"...murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother's blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed." (Tertullian, Apologeticus IX. - 6, 8)

Idolatry and Human Sacrifice

The beginning of idolatry is pride (love of self), which together with rebelliousness, defiance, selfishness, jealousy, covetousness, greed, hatred, and envy demonstrates preference for one's self instead of the Lord, neighbor and unwanted babies. Just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, murder is its' final result, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.

2 Timothy 3:3—the Natural Man

When people willfully fall away from the knowledge of the only true God and relentlessly transgress against His commandments, these actions effectively turn them back to their natural state. This means that in turning away from the living Triune God the soul ceases to live from the spirit and begins to live with the life of the body. The disordered passions thereby revived absorb the life of the person who spiritually dies resulting in the natural man of 2 Tim. 3:3. (St. Tikhon, Works II, Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, p. 120)

In this light we are able to understand that when our Lord said, "Wherever the body is, there will the vultures be gathered together" (Luke 17:37) the body collectively represents the spiritually dead who can no longer respond to the appeals of the Holy Spirit because by their own choice they are completely destitute of the knowledge of God.  Thus their darkened, disintegrated souls are incapable of any influence except that of polluting and corrupting the air around them and spreading spiritual disease and death.

The vultures therefore represent the Angels of God appointed for punishment alighting on such a society and removing the putrid carcasses of the spiritually dead:

"The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear."  Matthew 13: 41-43

But for the faithful, our Lord says:

“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each person according to what he has done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.  Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may enter the city by its gates.  But outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”   Revelation 22: 10-15

Gen. 1-11: The Creation Model Versus Modern Pagan and Pantheist Evolutionary Models

In June 2005 the prestigious World Summit on Evolution was held on the remote island of San Cristobal in the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador.  The location was chosen because it was the spot where Charles Darwin docked in 1835 to probe the ultimate question—the origin and nature of life.

The Galapagos summit was hailed as the Woodstock of Evolution, and attending scientists celebrated as a literal “Who’s Who of evolutionary theory.”

A key figure at the conference was the world famous philosopher of mind, Daniel Dennett.  Dennett is the favorite of all new pagan and mystical pantheist trans-humanists. They believe that computers can not only simulate human mental processes but will eventually evolve the conscious awareness known today as artificial intelligence  

Strangely, for a philosopher of mind Dennett seeks to convince the world that there really isn’t any such thing as a mind in the traditional Biblical sense. In the Biblical model, the material brain is an awesomely designed computer by which spirit, the citadel of man’s soul, interfaces with the world of matter, time, and space. Like dreaming however, thinking does not take place within the material brain but within the unseen dimension of spirit.

As a neo-pagan evolutionary materialist (pagan animist), Dennett enthusiastically embraces Darwin’s evolutionary theory because evolution—-an unseen creative energy that acts upon matter—- supposedly provides a ‘scientific’ explanation for the emergence of life from non-life bearing chemicals, thereby supposedly negating the necessity of the living, supernatural Tri-Personal God.   Hence Dennett’s delusional insistence that there is no soul/spirit (mind, will) associated with the human brain or any supernatural God or life after death.   Thus the central concern of Dennett’s career has been to explain how,

“….meaning, function and purpose can come to exist in a world that is intrinsically meaningless and functionless.” (The Spiritual Brain, Beauregard & O’Leary, p. 2)

Dennett’s pagan materialist assumptions are in keeping with Darwin’s conceptions.  In thoroughly researching Darwin’s notebooks atheist evolutionists Stephen Jay Gould and Ernst Mayer have shown that Darwin identified himself as a philosophical materialist several months before he developed the idea of natural selection, a type of predestination.

Contemporary evolutionary materialism is a revamped version of ancient Egyptian materialism and the Atomism taught by ancient Greek nature philosophers such as Epicurus.  (1) Epicurus held that all that exists are atoms (matter) bumping together in a void.  There is no God or gods; no origin for life and conscious life, thus no soul/spirit, and no life after death.  Just atoms, the void and annihilation.   This means that man is less than nothing.

In the evolutionary animist and mystical pantheist Marxist model, for example, no human being is actually redeemable since all humans are depersonalized, soulless aspects of the mystical pantheist collective unconscious.  Marxism’s scientifically engineered New Man is merely coalesced complex forms of matter-- a product of evolution and begotten by the Sovereign World State.  (2)

The New Man has lost all sense of individuality and exists drone-like in collectivized (totalized) society as a natural resource, a part of the whole, made for the whole, and relatively worthless if not coalesced within the collective.

Marxism is but one of the many modern pagan and pantheist scientistic ideologies that reduce the human being to a soulless aspect of nature. Like the other systems, Marxism begins its process of social engineering by teaching humans that they are the product of Darwinian evolution working on matter, thereby allowing them to be deconstructed and depersonalized.  In this way the sense of their individual souls, intellect, free will, and conscience eventually fade to black since all four are shown by ‘science’ to be illusions. 

Social engineering allows the New Man to imagine he is a bio-machine or hominid rather than the image bearer of the Triune Creator.  This allows the New Man to sink into passive slavery to instincts and passions.   In short, since the New Man has no real choice, whatever harm he does to others can never be his fault since ’ science’ has liberated the New Man from the burden of freedom.  In this way, the New Man can fully enjoy his earthly rewards as a slave within a deterministic system of cause and effect unless truth and reality invade his collective darkness. Far from redeeming the New Man, social engineering has but brought back the Old Man of 2 Tim. 3:3.

Neo-pagan evolutionary materialism (naturalism) began ascending to its’ current dominant philosophical and scientific position as far back as the 17th century.   The conflict between the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and the naturalistic account is an ancient and critically important conflict, one fought with asperity in the 17th century between such men as Donne and Milton on one side and Bacon and the Royal Society on the other.   In the 18th century men such as Swift, Pope and Johnson opposed the neo-pagan naturalism of Hume, Bentham and French philosophers.  By the 19th century it was being fought over the whole of Western culture with creation ministries and men such as Richard John Neuhaus, Seraphim Rose, Peter Jones,  Albert Mohler, Creation Ministries International and a host of other supernatural creationists staunchly opposing all neo-pagan naturalism (materialist and pantheist) as represented by, for example,  Darwin, Dennett, Edward O. Wilson, Steven Pinker, Tom Wolfe, Teilhard de Chardin, Michael Dowd, Rob Bell, and Tim Keller.

Why is this conflict so important?  Among crucial issues is the answer to the question, ‘what is man?’   The answers provided by naturalism are entirely opposed to the answer provided by the Genesis account:

As part of our commitment to building a just and loving society, we must build a culture that cherishes the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life,” Trump continued. “All children, born and unborn, are made in the holy image of God. Every life is sacred, and every soul is a precious gift from heaven. As the Lord says in Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart.’” (Trump Says ‘Every Soul Is A Precious Gift From Heaven,’ Cites Scripture At Prayer Breakfast, Calvin Freiburge, Life Site News, Feb. 7, 2019)

The Genesis account of creation ex nihilo reveals that man is a person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons.  Man was created directly by the Creator God of Gen. 1 identified by the Apostle John as the Son of God (John 1:1), thus the with a superhuman intelligence and original nature from which Adam, hence all of us,  fell away and to which we are called back.

Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar observes that the unique concept of man as God's spiritual image-bearer gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," and this is,

"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, pp. 12-13)

In affirmation, the brilliant French economist, statesman and author, Frederic Bastiat writes of the gifts from God which includes the physical, intellectual and moral life:

"He has provided us with a collection of marvelous faculties. And He has put us in the midst of a variety of natural resources. By application of our faculties to these natural resources we convert them into products, and use them. Life, faculties, production — in other words, individuality, liberty, property — this is man (and) these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it. Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place." (How Evil Works, David Kupelian, p. 8)

The Creator

John 1:3 identifies our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ , the second Person of the Holy Trinity as the Creator:

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” “He was in the world, and the world was made by him” (v. 10). “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us” (v. 14).

Jesus Christ is the Creator.  Foremost of His miracles is creation out of nothing—six instantaneous acts or days of creation rather than the billions of years of evolutionary process as the wisdom of fallen man holds.

On the miraculous creation of the first man Church Father John Chrysostom writes:

“And God formed man of dust from the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul….the inbreathing communicated to the one created out of earth the power of life, and thus the nature of the soul was formed.  What does a living soul mean?  An active soul, which has the members of the body as the implements of its activities, submissive to its will.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p.215)

Gregory of Nyssa adds:

The body and the soul were formed at the same time—not one before and the other afterwards…” (ibid, p. 218

Early Church Fathers make the point that the whole of creation---angels, time, matter, fire, wind, water, herbs, trees, all life and conscious life---was brought into existence from non-existence (ex nihilo), not from anything already in existence or from the Essence or Nature of God.  Therefore creation does not have the same essence as God and is not a part of God as most ancient and modern pagans believe.

Lest we be led away into the false opinion that the soul itself is Divine, or a part of God’s essence as pantheists and Gnostic’s teach, Chrysostom writes:

“Certain senseless ones, being drawn away by their own conceptions, without thinking of anything in a God-befitting manner…dare to say that the soul has proceeded from the Essence of God. O frenzy! O folly! How many paths of perdition has the devil opened up for those who will serve him!” (ibid, Rose,  p. 216)

Neo-pagan myths like Darwin's materialist idea (1), which he received from his pagan grandfather, and Telhard de Chardin's Vedanta monist conception reject the Genesis account ex nihilo together with Original Sin and the fall and teach instead an inverted exegesis positing that man comes up from chemicals and lower creatures.  This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of relativism (subjectivism) because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else–maybe a divine superman, god-man, or super robot—-but nothing can be said about LGBTQ+ and the contemporary menu of 15 genders since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter that spontaneously generated itself from nothing.

With regard to soul/spirit, if man evolved from non-living, genderless matter or energy and lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth.  Like them he has no spirit—free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience.  He is a fleshy robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

Worse, as all pagan and pantheist conceptions are equally God-less, hence lifeless and mindless, none have an ultimate source for life, consciousness, soul, and personhood, thus all are merely different expressions of anti-human nihilism (meaninglessness) which makes man equal to or lower than the nonhuman, thereby allowing for all manner of crimes against humanity, especially the weakest, hated, envied, despised and inconvenient.  Here in paganized America tens of millions of unborn humans have been sadistically liquidated within abortuaries while  during the 20th century in excess of 160,000,000 unevolved human weeds, and useless eaters were brutally murdered in one way or another by two pagan and pantheist regimes: Marxist Communism and National Socialism.

Today, in the name of preventing climate change, ominous anti-human agendas are making astonishing inroads over and across America.

In "War On Humans," Wesley J. Smith reports that the "nature rights" movement seeks to grant flora and fauna,

"...the right to exist, persist, maintain and regenerate its vital cycles"—essentially a right to life that explicitly erases the moral distinction between humans and all other life forms. "  (tothesource, Feb. 27, 2014)

The putative rights of nature may also extend to inanimate matter:

"The Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Nature announces that the rights of nature are "inalienable . . . without distinction of any kind, such as may be made between organic and inorganic beings, origin, use to human beings, or any other state." 

Nature has already been granted "rights" by Ecuador and Bolivia, as well as in some thirty U.S. municipalities,

"...including Santa Monica, California. Ban ki-Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations has thrown his support behind the movement, and nature rights has been proposed for inclusion in an eventual UN treaty to fight climate change."
 

Though pagan naturalists prefer to keep it secret, they say in so many words that the depersonalized collective human organism will eventually evolve into some sort of cosmic Super Organism.  Underlying this idea is a quasi-Buddhist concept expressed in the idea that a universal human organism is reaching a magnificently evolved state of exaltation.

This view leads directly to religious ideas like those of Teilhard de Chardin who said that for Communism to succeed science must become spiritualized and the democrat, communist and fascist must unite.   These three currents must merge in order to promote the spiritual future of the World:

“The function of man is to build and direct the whole of the Earth…We shall end by perceiving that the great object unconsciously pursued by science is nothing else than the discovery of God.” (ibid, Rose, 591)

Chardin theorized that after millions of years of evolution a Christ consciousness was finally emerging out of matter causing the whole world and everything in it to become spiritualized and divinized.  Everything is becoming Christ, said Teilhard.

Seraphim Rose observes that Teilhard’s pantheism is a frightful heresy:

People will think they are gods while actually having this animalistic philosophy (which) is exactly what Antichrist needs in order to come to reign.” (ibid, p. 282)

In the final analysis, the conflict between supernatural creation ex nihilo and anti-human neo-pagan naturalism boils down to the answers to these questions: what or who are you and where you will spend eternity.

Pagan Progressivism, Cultural Marxism, Unconscious Satanism, Nimrod's Tower, and Spirit of Antichrist: Ties That Bind

"Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”  Genesis 3:1, KJB

Across our scientifically enlightened paganized society the idea of Satan and Satanism are uncomfortable subjects for most people, including many Christians, particularly ‘woke’ social justice evangelicals. It wasn't always this way. The apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky for example, knew that Communist revolutionaries such as Karl Marx were demonically possessed but would only become aware of it until too late.  
 
While Satanism is the knowing worship of Satan and is historically rare there is also historically widespread unconscious Satanism (1 Cor. 10:20):

“...the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.”  1 John 5:19 ESV

Unconscious Satanism undergirds ancient and modern pagan worship of creative energy symbolized by the serpent and grounded in ancient Mesopotamian literature with its evolutionary account of origins and one-dimensional pagan model of reality.

From the time of Babylon mankind has been worshipping creative energy symbolized by the serpent prominently featured within Ageless Wisdom traditions from all around the world. The legendary history of Greece, Rome, Phoenicia, Egypt, and India, for instance, are filled with stories of man’s serpentine ancestry:

When Aenas was about to worship at the tomb of Anchises, his father…a serpent appeared and glided among the altars, tasted the food Aeneas had placed there and then departed…. Aeneas did not know whether it was the genius loci or his father’s (serpent) spirit.”  (The Worship of Creative Energy as Symbolized by the Serpent, Charles Edward Herring) 

The solar deity Kneph, was a serpent in a fiery circle and Osiris and Isis were essentially identical with Kneph,

The worship of Isis, the moon-goddess, was equally entwined with ophiolatry. Her emblem was the horned viper...The Egyptians often represented Isis and Osiris together, as two serpents." (The Cult of the All-Seeing Eye, Robert Keith Spenser, p. 35)

All of the pagan gods and goddesses worshipped and served by the world's nations were symbols of creative energy symbolized by serpents that really exist. They are fallen, wicked Watchers, serpentine seraphim:

"There are "good" serpentine beings (seraphim) who guard God's throne (so Isaiah 6's seraphim), and there are fallen, wicked serpentine beings (seraphim) who rebelled against the Most High at various times, and who became the pagan gods of the other nations."   (Michael Heiser, "Serpentine/Reptilian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

The Serpent Biting Its Tail: Symbol of the Pagan Model of Reality

In addition to creative energy symbolized by the serpent, the serpent biting its tail is another important occult pagan symbol. This serpent symbolizes the one-dimensional pagan reality of monism:

The cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be.”  Carl Sagan

All Ageless Wisdom traditions feature monism, said Dr. Gary North.  Monism erases the Creator-creature distinction and is common to all occult systems,

"….from the magical sects of the East to the gnostics of the early church period, and from there unto today's preachers of cosmic evolution and irresistible karma." Monism teaches, "....we are all gods in the making.  Out of One has preceded the many, and back into One are the many traveling.  Eastern mystics, philosophical Hegelians, and followers of Teilhard de Chardin are all agreed on the reality of ultimate monism."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 60)

While pagan monism posits the cosmic or natural dimension with its two heavens, existence in the natural dimension of space and time is not the only form of existence. Timeless is the supernatural realm (third heaven) of the eternally existing, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Holy Triune God of Revelation.

There are three heavens.  The first is the immediate sky, or earth's atmosphere. (Genesis 2:19; 7:3, 23; Psalms 8:8; Deuteronomy 11:17)  All people who have had out-of-body experiences by way of near-death or drugs, astral plane travels, or through shamanism for example, can testify to the existence of their own souls as well as of the abode of demons and fallen angels, the serpentine "spirits of wickedness under the heavens" (Eph. 6:12) and their chief, "the prince of the powers of the air." (Eph. 2:2; Gen. 3:1)

According to the Apostle Paul, fallen serpentine powers thrown down from the third heaven are dispersed in a multitude throughout the first heaven. It is with this timeless abode of fallen angels and demons that shamans interact and to which astral plane travelers from the time of Nimrod to our own have been visiting.

The second heaven is the starry heavens or outer space. (Deuteronomy17:3 ; Jeremiah 8:2; Matthew 24:29). The third heaven is outside of time and space, meaning the first and second heavens, thus outside the reach of man's science.

The timeless third heaven is where God the Father with Jesus Christ seated on His right and the holy angels and spirits of righteous men in possession of eternal life dwell and to which Paul was taken. (Deuteronomy 10:14; 1 Kings 8:27; Psalms 115:16; 148:4; 2 Cor.12:2 )

Wicked Serpentine Seraphim Within Church and State

For the scientifically enlightened West and America serpent energy was repackaged during the nineteenth century as evolutionary science by a brotherhood of powerfully influential Western occultists at the highest levels of church, society and government.  Thus today unconscious Satanism abounds throughout the West and America. Its’ spirit flows through evolutionary ideologies and evolutionary 'religions’ such as Marxism, Secular Humanism, Progressivism, western Satanism, New Age Spirituality, inner circle Masonry and Progressive Christianity.

According to New Age insider and unconscious Satanist David Spangler, Lucifer is the angel of Nature's primary creative energy--evolution:

“The true light of this great being can only be recognized when one's own eyes can see with the light of the Christ, the light of the inner sun. Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into the New Age, which is the age of man's wholeness, each of us is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation, the particular doorway through which the individual must pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and his wholeness.”

"Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free, that is the Luciferic Initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.” (David Spangler, Reflections on the Christ, Findhorn Lecture Series, 3rd ed., 1981; p. 45)  

The modern animist and occult traditions of the spiritually pagan and mystically pantheist American and global occult brotherhood for example, are revamped versions of Ageless Wisdom Teachings grounded in creative energy (serpent power). Writing in affirmation, Corinne McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson, the politically influential co-authors of " of "Spiritual Politics: Changing the World from the Inside Out," reveal that concealed behind today's spiritual revolutionary politics (i.e., Cultural Marxism and Progressivism) are Ageless Wisdom teachings preserved by occultists since the Egyptian pantheon (27th-30th centuries B.C). These ancient teachings, said the authors, have been handed down over the ages to modern occultists in the time of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment and on into our own time:

"For centuries, the Ageless Wisdom in the West was shielded from an unprepared public.... The unveiled truths were handed down only orally by individual teachers to tested disciples or by certain religious groups and secret societies, such as the Cabbalists, Druids, Essenes, Sufis, Knights Templar, Rosicrucian's, Freemasons, and others who carefully guarded the teachings down through the centuries. A study of these secret societies would reveal powerful influences on the history of nations...." (Spiritual Politics, McLaughlin, Davidson from "Reinventing Jesus Christ: The New Gospel," Warren Smith, crossroad)

In the classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages" English theologian G.H. Pember (1837-1910) examines the explosion of Ageless Wisdom----spiritism (open communication with evil spirits), ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, Theosophy, Buddhism, reincarnation and evolution, karma, the Mysteries, astrology, mesmeric healings and evolutionary thinking sweeping across Christendom

It was during the Renaissance that many influential Christians at the highest levels of Church and society had returned to the occult Ageless Wisdom Teachings and serpent power.  Hence Pember observes that ancient occult traditions are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the emerging occult brotherhood as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given to the,

"...initiates of the Hermetic, Orphic, Eleusinian, and Cabbalistic mysteries, and were familiar to Chaldean Magi, Egyptian Priests, Hindu Occultists, Essenes, Therapeutae Gnostics, and Theurgic Neo-Platonists." (Pember, pp.243-244)

Wicked Seraphim and the Spirit of Antichrist

In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, "The Brothers Karamazov," (1879-1880) the Grand Inquisitor is an unconscious Satanist and type of Antichrist.  The Grand Inquisitor is an important part of the novel because the character represents Dostoevsky's penetrating insight into the fallen human psyche and one of its' most important endowments: moral freedom.   In particular, the Grand Inquisitor is the spirit of Antichrist. Like his father the devil he is the murderer of God the Father and false witness and crucifier of Jesus Christ. He is also the symbol of the principle of nihilism (negation) and rebellion in mortal men such Hegel, Max Stirner, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, the global occult brotherhood and Western and American ruling class God-haters who, though not the actual devil, are of one mind with him, thus do his work.   They are unconscious Satanists and, collectively, the Spirit of Antichrist

The Grand Inquisitor is a god-man who has usurped the throne of the Holy Triune God. He is a conscious swindler, a Big Liar who knows that God the Father exists, yet perversely chooses to rebel against and conceptually murder Him and crucify His Son despite that he knows his own life is by the grace of the personal God of life and revelation. 
 
In "Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor," Ellis Sandoz writes that when Marx found himself compelled to negate his own being (inner person, soul/spirit, self) because of his perverse desire to show that "man owes his existence (only) to man," and to establish that the "entire so-called history of the world is nothing but the creation of man," he virtually recapitulated Aquinas' argument for the existence of the Triune God:
 
"A being only considers himself independent when he stands on his own feet; and he only stands on his own feet when he owes his existence to himself.  A man who lives by the grace of another regards himself as a dependent being (and) I live completely by the grace of another if I owe him not only the maintenance of my life, but if he has, moreover, created my life---if he is the source of my life.  When it is not of my own creation, my life has necessarily a source of this kind outside of it.  The creation is therefore an idea very difficult to dislodge from popular consciousness.  The fact that nature and man exist in their own account is incomprehensible to it, because it contradicts everything tangible in practical life."(pp. 113-114)
 
Being of one mind with the devil, the Grand Inquisitor (Marx) suggests that in order to affirm that man is god, the denial of the existence of the one true God has in the past been necessary (i.e., Nimrod), thus to further his swindle, he asserts antitheism rather than atheism, which is merely a negation of God that nevertheless postulates the existence of man through this negation.  The complete negation of the Triune God requires monism, thereby making man and nature (matter, energy, time, space) of the same substance. 
 
For the conscious swindler, the prudent course is to flatly deny the existence of the Holy Triune God and enforce this dictate by way of psychological terror and if need be, by murder. Believers must be psychologically manipulated and terrorized into confusion, apathy and groveling submission, and even better, accommodate the Christian Church to the serpent-powered world system by way of harsh scorn, cruel ridicule, scoffing, slander and charges of insanity. 

After seizing control of Russia, Marx's disciples enforced the denial of the Triune God by way of terror, murder, psychoactive drugs, and enforced teaching of Darwinism.   With the exception of murder, the disciples of the occult brotherhood and our Godless ruling class utilize the same methods as Marx’s disciples:  terror, psychoactive drugs, and enforced teaching of Darwinism.

The Inquisitor also knows that if men are deprived of the Holy Triune God they will worship something else.  Thus as Marx, the Inquisitor proffers the natural (pagan) religion of scientific socialism and dialectical materialism (divine thinking matter animated by creative energy).  But when Darwin published his own theory, the Inquisitor immediately perceived its' philosophically pagan materialist implications.  The idea that humans evolved by chance and natural selection from a process of evolutionary energy working on primordial water or lifeless chemicals lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and provided the scientific framework to support the economic infrastructure on which Marx could build his godless communist utopia:
 
"...the biggest thing going for Darwinism was that it finally broke the tyranny in which Christianity had held the minds of men for so many centuries." (F. Hoyle and C. Wickramasinghe, "Evolution From Space," 1983, pp. xiii-xxii, 81 and 145)
 
Progressivism, Marxist Communism & National Socialism: Types of Nimrod's Tower
 
In his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy," Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) notes that the two recurring themes of modern utopian ideologies (new Nimrod’s Tower) are monism and evolutionary conceptions. At the root of these two themes there is:

" defiance of God, pride unlimited, a yearning for enormous power and the assumption of divine attributes with a view to manipulating and shaping mankind's fate." (p. 227)

In order for god-men to build a new Tower (create a God-less world and new man):

"the order of being must be obliterated (and reinterpreted) as essentially under man's control." Taking control "requires the decapitation of being — the murder of God." (Eric Voegelin, "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," p. xv)
 
Thus the Grand Inquisitor (global occult Brotherhood and Godless ruling class) is a modern Nimrod and spirit of Antichrist, making him an ominous sign pointing to the return of pre-flood and Babylonian rebellion against the one true God, monism, Ageless Wisdom, contact with evil serpentine beings, and creative energy symbolized by the serpent.  The Grand Inquisitor is the false witness and crucifier of Jesus Christ. He is the Master of the Universe who, being of one mind with Satan, has conceptually murdered the Holy Triune God as revealed through Jesus Christ in order to take control of and reinterpret being, matter, energy, space, law, and time, making him an Antichrist:

"And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”   Daniel 7:25

America's Transformation Into a Collectivist Mystical Pantheist god-State

The announcement of the death of God was the obituary of a useless single-minded and one-dimensional norm of a civilization that has been predominantly monotheistic, not only in its religion, but also in its politics, its history, its social order, its ethics, and its psychology.  When released from the tyrannical imperialism of monotheism by the death of God, man has the opportunity of discovering new dimensions hidden in the depths of reality’s history.”  (The New Polytheism: The Rebirth of the Gods and Goddesses, ‘death of God theologian’ David LeRoy Miller, vii)

Since the ‘death of God’ and the Sexual Liberation movement of the '60s, America has been experiencing an explosion of religiously pagan movements in concert with a relentless assault on the Revealed Word of God, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, immutable truth, reality, first principles, universal moral law, and the created order of being---the two sexes (male and female) for example. These movements interface with occult Gnosticism, Hinduism, and other mystical pantheist collectivist notions: evolutionary materialism, scientism, Communism, Cultural Marxism, Socialism, social justice, New Age cults, Satanism, transcendental meditation, yoga, Wicca, goddess worship, ‘gay’ shamanism, reincarnation, Luciferian Theosophy, LGBTQ+, sustainability, Gaia worship, deep ecology, channeling, the Great Apes Project and all other animal rights agenda. All are types of pantheist collectivism which stress in one way or another that mankind is ‘one with’ nature (the evolving universe of divine psychic energy and matter) and should therefore make obeisance to it as Sovereign.

In his penetrating analysis of pagan Progressivism, M. Stanton Evans author of "The Theme is Freedom: Religion, Politics, and the American Tradition," observes that it is only against the background of neo-paganism that the bizarre ‘isms’ of Progressive politics come into focus. The common feature of all these movements---naturalism, materialism, sexism, multiculturalism, feminism, determinism, economic determinism, racism, heteronormativism, and patriarchalism for instance, is that they view irrational nature itself as ultimate and sovereign. In other words, they make a god of irrational nature—its laws, energies, and matter---which is precisely why Al Gore is synonymous with Gaia, global warming, and carbon footprints, and the Left in general zealously stresses collectivism (scientific pantheism), solidarity, oneness, inclusion, diversity, and other worldly social justice concerns.  Evans comments:

Much of it, indeed, is pantheism or other nature-worship, dressed up as secularism or science.” Darwinian evolution is the “most influential case in point (as it) explicitly replaces (or identifies) God with physical nature, and in some versions even attributes to nature, or some agency within it, ineffable designs.” (The Theme is Freedom, p. 122)

For almost one-hundred years, the religiously pagan Progressive Left has been engaged in stealthily undermining and gutting our founding documents and America’s religious, social, political, legal, and cultural infrastructures. Toward this end, they’ve managed to infiltrate alien meaning into the Word of God, seminaries and pulpits as well as marginalize and deconstruct the Declaration of Independence—the charter document. Additionally, Progressive change-agents have cleverly infiltrated new and alien meaning into our Constitution. Originally, the individual’s right to liberty was viewed as inalienable because God-given, thus fixed and unchanging.  But with the ‘death’ of the Holy Trinity, powerfully influential pagan and scientific pantheist Progressives stealthily replaced Him with a mystical god-state, redefined the Word (John 1) as divine energy variously identified as evolution, natural selection, kundalini, and christ-consciousness. Subsequently, the Constitution now ‘lives and evolves,’ a quasi-divine amoral Ruling Class has replaced ‘we the people,’ and group privileges (collectivism) are increasingly sweeping away individual rights.

Where originally, each and every human life possesses an ‘inalienable right to life’ was held as an immutable truth and a universal moral good, the politically correct religiously pagan evolutionary materialist view holds that truth and morality are irrelevant and human life without value, dignity, or purpose. Usurping the place of our God-given inalienable right to life is politically correct choice. In reality, choice is a pagan elitist eugenics mentality in disguise, hence it views procreation of undesirables---such as Conservative Christians---as bad, therefore all population control schemes such as euthanasia, abortion, the abomination called partial birth abortion, and sterilization by way of sodomy are ‘good.’

However, despite these and the pagan Left’s many other successful changes toward a satanic inversion of America’s traditional cultural, social, political, and legal order, our Second Amendment rights remain a primary concern to the totalitarian ambitions of America’s pagan Ruling Class.  Our pagan masters want our guns because a weaponless people are a helpless people.

Various pagan Marxists, Secular Humanists and their confederates predicted long ago that they and an interconnected network of Cultural Marxist and other humanist accomplices throughout academia, the entertainment world, government, the church and elsewhere, would bring about the fall of the West by way of a ‘long walk through the culture.’ (1) This diabolically conceived ‘walk’ would incrementally condition our minds, demoralize and corrupt us, and slowly invert our traditional order by disarming, dumbing-down, and putting Westerners ‘to sleep’ (enslaving them) through propaganda of confusion, disinformation, immorality, and “sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.” Unwary sleepers, it was confidently foretold, would never dream that they would one day awaken to the nightmare world of slavery unfolding all around us.

Over the course of many years those predictions have come true. Today, millions of Americans are an immoral, narcissistic, infantilized people addicted to instant gratification and vices whose addictions are fed and fueled by warped, pornographic, propaganda-spewing media and entertainment. And while vice-addicted Americans have been sleeping, our universities and schools have become transmission belts for the proselytizing of Darwinism, socialism, political correctness, open-borders, New Age pantheism, sexual confusion, non-binary transgender (androgyny), one world collectivism, and hate:  hate-whitey, hate-Conservatives, hate-America, hate truth, hate history, hate free markets, hate straight males, hate-tradition, hate-morality, and hate the Biblical God.

As truth, common sense, morality, and knowledge of our founding Christian-based worldview fades to black, the American mind shuts down in tandem, thereby allowing the ice cap of a new ‘green’ pantheist totalitarianism to relentlessly advance across our nation, snuffing out the light of Christ, liberty and all things good. Under its dark oppressive weight, America is thrust into a black abyss of godless pagan superstition, where at the urging of satan’s pagan Ruling Class tools, 2+2 becomes 5, males are females, females are males, Christmas is increasingly defined as a Festival of Light  (which means occult enlightenment), and with the Supreme Court’s 2015 Obergefell v. Wade decision, America has turned a corner of historic and ominous significance:

"The Declaration of Independence, declaring that rights and laws are endowed by the Creator, has been rendered meaningless by a fake redefining of marriage, with no reference to the Creator or to any objective standards. The charade is over. This decision indicates that what has been happening for some time is finally here for all to see: the USA is clearly a “godless nation.” Let public figures supporting this decision no longer say or sing: “God bless America.” or “Amazing Grace.” It is just as worthless as their view of marriage."  (The Body Politic is Queer, Dr. Peter Jones, truthxchange, Jun. 26, 2015)

America’s founders long ago warned Americans that only a God-fearing, informed, and virtuous people can remain a free people, for these practices lend themselves to impulse control issuing in self-determination and the cultivation of higher reason and logic, hence to individual liberty and our form of self-government. In the words of Patrick Henry---Christian patriot, governor of Virginia, revolutionary general, “The Voice of Liberty,’ and signer of the U.S. Constitution:

The great pillars of all government and of social life (are) virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.”

Ignorance, narcissism, relativism, and lack of self-control on the other hand, leads to lack of impulse-control (determinism) and the downward spiraling consequences of addiction to vice---dependency, lying, cheating, crime, chaos, anarchy, and eventually slavery.

Tragically, and of great consequence to the continuance of individual liberty, all too many Americans today are selfish, apathetic, drug-using, porn-using, infantilized, violence-prone, obscenity-spewing, sex-obsessed people, and the name Jesus Christ is for many of these---and particularly for America’s self-anointed pagan Ruling Class---- the obscenity of choice. In 1909, Reverend Francis Grimke warned of the perils of moral corruption. He said:

If the time ever comes when we shall go to pieces, it will…be…from inward corruption----from the disregard of right principles…” (Equality of Right for all Citizens, Black and White Alike)

America’s greatest enemy is ‘we the people’—-and even President Trump cannot save us from ourselves. For when we choose to fall down the slippery slope of moral corruption, ignorance, dependency, and apathy we fall right into slavery, both spiritual and physical. Our own freely chosen follies and conceits---in concert with a willingness to transgress---is the downfall, and transformation of our individual liberties, self-government, decency, and a free America into a ‘new ‘Babylon—-a collectivist mystical pantheist god-state.

Why Western God-Haters Willfully Choose Magic, Nihilism, Depravity, and Stupidity

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity, whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things…Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”  Romans 1: 29, 30, 32)

The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed.” (Karl Marx, Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 59).

The living, transcendent Triune God of Revelation,  

“…. Is the leftists’ chief rival,” (Peter Hitchens, “The Rage against God”)  

Hitchens adds:

Christian belief, by subjecting all men to divine authority and by asserting in the words ‘My kingdom is not of this world,’ that the ideal society does not exist in this life, is the most coherent and potent obstacle to secular utopianism.” (p.134)

Under the guiding hands of sinister God-haters, the world as the creation ex nihilo of the sovereign Triune God of Revelation first gave way to the world as an evolving aspect of autonomous man's experience and now to an Eastern-oriented mystical pantheist illusion created by the will of the man-god:

"Man, at the same time, has stopped regarding himself as the vice-regent of God, created in His image, and (now sees) himself as a fragmented being ruled by ancient urges and lusts which control him and reduce his reason to a façade for rampant irrationalism.  Not surprisingly, T.S. Eliot saw modern man in a waste land of his own making." (The Word of Flux, Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 54) 

From the close of the Medieval Age on through to our own time, God-haters have been waging war against the God of Revelation. The reason for this unrelenting attack upon the Triune God, but especially Jesus Christ, is mankind’s sinful fallen condition. God-haters desire suppression of the knowledge of their own sin, which they hope will stifle the gnawing pain of a guilty conscience:

"The epistemological problem has roots in a false metaphysics, but both alike stem from a moral choice, man's sinful desire to be his own god.... In reality, sin is man's rebellion against the law of God and man's attempt to be his own god, to replace God's Word with man's word."   (ibid, p. 51)

Fallen, sinful man denies he is a sinner under the judgment of the Triune God.   He seeks escape from the moral law requirements of the Holy Triune God by establishing his own evolutionary cosmogony (anti-creation account), deterministic religion of nature, philosophy, and law to control the whole of reality by his fiat word exercised through the instrument of science:

"He therefore excludes the sovereignty of God and the authority of His Word, because man cannot allow such a God to exist in his world and to speak with authority to man." (ibid, p. 53) 

Though he may concede that such a God is possible—-but only as First Cause of the Big Bang and life as evolutionary theism and progressive creation maintain— the basic reality for modern naturalistic man is his autonomous existence. Thus while evolutionary theism posits a limited, man-controlled God of no authority within creation, God-haters want atheism to be true:

I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers.  It isn’t just that I don’t believe in God…It’s that I hope there is no God!  I don’t want there to be a God; I don’t want the universe to be like that.” (Thomas Nagel, Rage Against God. p. 150)

Nagel admits his own Cosmic Authority problem and states his belief that this same problem is not only widespread, but has produced bad science among his fellow unbelievers within the scientific community,

My guess is that this cosmic authority problem is not a rare condition and that it is responsible for much of the scientism and reductionism of our time.  One of the tendencies it supports is the ludicrous overuse of evolutionary biology to explain everything about life, including everything about the human mind.”  (ibid. p. 150)

In other words, scientism is the powerful magic through which the will to power of both God-haters and evolutionary theists performs sorcery and surgery. By wielding this powerful magic the Triune God and the third heaven have disappeared and man created in His spiritual image has been turned into a highly evolved ape…an evolved soulless product of evolution working on matter.   Through magic, man’s mind (spirit), the citadel of his soul, has been ‘turned into’ his material brain and his mind’s intellectual powers into the firing of synapses and interaction of chemicals.

Evolutionary reductionism is a cruel swindle perpetrated against unsuspecting Westerners by scientistic sorcerers, who having rejected Jesus Christ’s offer of salvation, want no one else to have it either.   All of it---evolutionary biology, Darwinism, scientism, man as evolved ape or hominid, and global change-- are magical illusions.

The truth is that each man is an embedded soul whose citadel is mind (will, conscience, reason) or spirit.  Scripture uses these two words, spirit and soul, interchangeably.

 Spirit is vertically open to receipt of ‘heavenly manna’ from our Father in Heaven.   However, spirit can also be open to influence and suggestion from the demonic realm, the intelligent powers behind the haters of God.

Though narrowly defined, man has ‘free will,’ thus he is able to assent to and believe in truth or reject it and assent instead to placing his faith in the cruel magic perpetrated against him by God-haters. 

In the American Dictionary of the English Language of 1828, Noah Webster defines belief and faith,

1. Belief: “…an assent of the mind (spirit) to the truth of a declaration, proposition… distinct from personal knowledge; as the belief of the gospel.”

2. Faith: “The assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another; in theology, the assent of the mind…to the truth of what God has revealed…”

Note that assent of spirit always precedes what we ‘believe’ and have ‘faith’ in as true and real. This is true of all people, from Darwin, Karl Marx, and Nietzsche, to Popes, priests, pastors, bishops, “gays,” evolutionary biologists, Presidents, Prime Ministers, university professors, Luciferians, and evolutionary theists.

The atheist scientist for example, must ‘believe’ in his findings, but more importantly, it is by ‘faith’ that he believes that his mind (unseen spirit) is capable not only of ‘knowing’ but of separating reality from fantasy.

All of this being the case, when during the Enlightenment Western apostates declared the death of Jesus Christ and elevated ‘nature’ to the supreme position they were immediately faced with irresolvable problems. Of these, three are of primary importance.

The first had to do with the ultimate source of life, and the second with man’s embedded soul/spirit, or ‘being.’  If the living Creator of life and man’s being is dead, then there is no source for life and being, making man a nonbeing, a walking dead body that nevertheless speaks, thus the question becomes, “What is man?”

Evolutionary naturalism provides no answers as it posits that life emerged from pre-existing or spontaneously generated (Big Bang) chemicals, stardust or other non-life-bearing matter, which begs the question, where did the pre-existing or spontaneously generated matter come from?  Furthermore, lifeless chemicals cannot produce life, and without life that can be ‘naturally selected’ then evolutionary process has nothing to work on.

The third unresolvable problem emerges from the first two.  If the living Triune God is dead and man is a nonbeing, then what can the soulless nonbeing know and how can he account for what he knows?

The answer: he can neither account for his own life nor how he knows anything.

Philosophically, evolutionary naturalism is a species of nihilism because since humanity has supposedly evolved from lesser to greater biological organisms, the same change process is in play in the area of truth, morals, gender and biblical infallibility. Therefore, all that can be known at present – and forever – is that there is no absolute or fixed certainty in either the area of truth, morality, gender and the Revealed Word of God.

Additionally, the elevation of lifeless matter and energy to ‘creator’ is idolatrous worship of nature while the depraved notion that man is a nonbeing completely controlled by instincts (genetic and chemical forces of nature) and environment--which is another way of saying unseen forces---is utterly stupid.  

If love of truth and compassion for other souls animated the cold, shriveled hearts of God-haters they would repent of their infernal project. But as love for brother has no place in their hard-hearts they choose instead to work around the clock to ensure that since they have chosen hell then all of us must end up there, thus their relentless intellectual assault.  Peter Hitchens comments,

The current intellectual assault on God in Europe and North America is in fact a specific attack on Christianity – the faith that stubbornly persists in the morality, laws, and government of the major Western countries.” (The Rage Against God, p. 134)

"…knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires."  2 Peter 3:3

The essence of the terroristic assault upon mankind is psychological bullying.  It takes the form of a two-pronged attack.  One prong consists of license to sin, sugar-coated lies, Big Lies, double-speak, half-truths, evasions, insidiously revised history, teaching of evolution as factual science and the seductive allure of pride in being included within the citadel of the best, brightest, and morally pure.   The other prong consists of a campaign of spiritual terror in the form of relentless browbeating, scoffing, mocking, guilt-trips, cruel ridicule, slander, backstabbing, sly innuendo, and terroristic persecution and shunning of all who prove resistant to the first prong process.

In terms of procedure, men must first be conditioned to believe without question that evolution is a scientific fact. They must blindly accept that they are evolved apes and that anyone who disbelieves this canon of depravity and stupidity is a stupid redneck bible-thumper.

Second, human apes must be conditioned to speak in terms such as ‘it seems to me,’ ‘it appears to me,’ ‘I feel’ and ‘suddenly I realized’ rather than ‘I believe’ ‘I think’ ‘my faith is in,’ and ‘it is my belief.    Why? Because the former terms are abstract enough to imply ‘something caused’ in the brain by chemical interactions while the latter specifically point to ‘assent of spirit.’   And man must never, ever be reminded that he is a soul/spirit within which assent of mind occurs. Therefore, words such as belief and faith are verboten…forbidden.

Hitchens tells us that the ultimate and only defense against infernal God-haters and their nihilism, worship of human power, moral relativism, and the notion that ends justify means is a return to fundamental orthodox Biblical doctrines and teachings such as:

“…sin…conscience…eternal life, and…divine justice under an unalterable law…” (Ibid. p. 135)

In other words, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, signaling a return to sanity…. of life, of soul/spirit and of the light of truth and righteousness.

The Peace Symbol: Evil Sign of Hatred and Death Against Christians

Signified by the peace sign, September 22 is hailed as International Peace Day. According to the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) the peace symbol was designed more than sixty years ago by an English professional artist/designer named Gerald Holtom. Today the highly successful motif appears on everything from children's clothing, to T-shirts, mugs, jewelry, purses and more.   

While the reported origin of the logo has been clearly documented in letters, interviews, and the original sketches of the sign, the peace symbol has Communist and Nazi, as well as historically pagan, occult, and anti-Christian meanings and derivations:

"The downward V has been linked to the mystic character for ”Aum,” a sacred word to the Hindu. Saying “Aum” over and over supposedly awakens the power of Brahma at the base of the spine. Germanic tribes that used it claimed the sign, or “rune,” to have eerie, mystical properties. It is said that it was used by sorcerers in pagan ceremonies. The Saracens in A.D. 711 used this symbol to alternately represent a broken cross, a raven's claw, or a witch's foot, all presumably satanic symbols. Under the reign of Roman Emperor Nero, infamous for his brutal persecution of Christians and Jews, this symbol was prominently used to represent a broken cross or broken Jew. Nero crucified the Apostle Peter upside down, and the horrific event resembled the downward-pointing fork. It was thereafter called the Neronic cross. With the Third Reich steeped in the occult, Hitler's 3rd Panzer Division used this same symbol from 1941 to 1945. The symbol in Germany is called a todesrune or death rune. It often appeared on death notices. It is also found on some of the tombstones of the notorious SS soldiers. For Bertrand Russell, a supporter of communism, the symbol meant not only communism but also peace without God. Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, used the downward-pointing fork as the background for his altar. The Book of Signs, written by Rudolph Koch, indicates that the downward-pointing fork means “the death of man,” and, with the circle around it meaning “total,” the entire symbol means “the total death of all people.”  (What is the Origin of the Peace Sign?  got questions)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who pastored, counseled and delivered more than 20,000 people suffering from occult bondage, said that at the time of the first-century persecution of Christians, the peace symbol was called the Neronic cross.   It was on such a cross that the apostle Peter was crucified upside-down.  Koch comments:
 
"The symbol of peace thus signifies an inverted cross and is a symbol of hatred against Christians." (Occult ABC, p. 242)
 
In the eighth century, the Saracens fought in Spain against the Catholic church.  Their warriors had the symbol of death (the Neronic cross) painted on their shields:
 
"The same symbol of hatred against Christians was used by the Saracens when they fought against the Crusaders in A.D. 1099."
 
By the Middle Ages, the Neronic cross took on more sinister meaning:
 
"...the Neronic cross---known in many places as the pentagram---served as the symbol of the black mass, satanic cults and blasphemy."
 
During the 20th century the Neronic cross became the symbol for the "peace" movement. It was the arch-communist Bertrand Russell who adapted the Neronic cross as the now famous peace symbol because he himself was a determined enemy of Jesus Christ and Christianity.  According to Koch, the infamous ‘peace symbol’ has been worn by various arch-enemies of Christianity from leaders of the communist student movement in the USA to Russian trained Arab guerillas and the black pope Anton La Vey.

"Simon Peter at last sees it all as Jesus saw it all from the beginning. Even then, Simon sees it from a topsy-turvy angle. He and some two thousand other Christians have been tied to crosses stuck upside down on the grassy embankment around the Imperial Gardens on Vatican Hill. They have been daubed with pitch. Tonight they are to be living, screaming, dying torches. Emperor Nero, his lovely concubine Poppaea, and their guests will have light to eat by and sights to joke about. Each Christian will die in the classic sign of Satan — the upside-down cross." ("Capturing the Pagan Mind, Peter Jones, p. ix)

Peace, peace,’ they say, “when there is no peace” in their hearts. Jeremiah 6:14

From the first century crucifixion of Peter and other Christians, to the murder of more than 30,000,000 Christians by Marxist Communists and the torture, beheading, and crucifixion of thousands more by Isis, on through to our own time, the popular peace symbol has signified hatred and death against Christians.   In this light, no Christian should ever wear this evil symbol.

Godless America's idolatrous, depraved, brazenly hypocritical, scapegoating society

In the wake of the 'murder' of Jesus Christ, second Person of the Holy Trinity, an anarchy of depravity has overtaken our Godless, paganized society. Posing as legal, political, special rights, superior expert opinion, and hurt feelings, self-righteous hypocritical moralists furiously charge President Trump and mainly white socially conservative Christians and like-minded Americans with spurious and guilt-inducing accusations of homophobia, racism, sexism, xenophobia, intolerance, hate, and mental illness. As this unrelenting reign of terror gains a more complete hold over our society what follows in its wake is a mobocracy of absurdity, nihilism, paranoia, scapegoating, brutality, attempts at murder, chaos and tyranny.

Godless America’s Idolatrous, Depraved, Brazenly Hypocritical, Scapegoating Society

"God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. Yet his shadow still looms. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives; who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves?"   Friedrich Nietzsche

In the wake of the 'murder' of Jesus Christ, second Person of the Holy Trinity, an anarchy of depravity has overtaken our Godless, paganized society. Posing as legal, political, special rights, superior expert opinion, and hurt feelings, self-righteous hypocritical moralists furiously charge President Trump and mainly white socially conservative Christians and like-minded Americans with spurious and guilt-inducing accusations of homophobia, racism, sexism, xenophobia, intolerance, hate, and mental illness.  As this unrelenting reign of terror gains a more complete hold over our society what follows in its wake is a mobocracy of absurdity, nihilism, paranoia, scapegoating, brutality, attempts at murder, chaos and tyranny.

Exemplifying some of this madness is a Huffington Post article, "Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People." This twisted anthem of shameless self-pity was written by a weepy-eyed young black women, an oppressed and ‘racialized’ fourth year journalism student at Ryerson University. The self-adoring egoist who penned this drivel is so blinded by her self-gratifying self-pity and presumption that in her demand for safe-spaces she inadvertently confesses that she is paranoid, a delusion experienced by many narcissists. 

Narcissists are self-centered, thus in their intense examination of ‘self,’ can and do imagine that other people must be as obsessed by thoughts of the pompous ‘self’ as the egoist is with him or herself.  This is why the self-centered person can easily imagine that he or she is the target of persecution and hatred by others, in this case, by millions of evil white racists whose obsessive thoughts and sole aim in life is to cause the self-pitying author to suffer.  According to the paranoid narcissist:

"Racialized people experience systemic discrimination on a daily basis, on many levels, and in ways that white people may never encounter. The whole point of these safe spaces is to remove that power dynamic. That's partly what makes them spaces for healing. The presence of any kind of privilege puts unnecessary pressure on the people of colour to defend any anger or frustrations they have, to fear the outcome of sharing their stories..." (Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People, 03/18/2015 )

The iniquity lurking beneath the paranoid suggestion that ‘racialized people’ need ‘safe spaces’ because of so-called ‘systemic discrimination’ by evil white racists is scapegoating.

A scapegoat is a person or group of people made to take the blame for everything that goes wrong. In practice, it  occurs when the guilty project their own sins upon another person or group of people:

"And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat." Leviticus 16:8

After all of the sins of the people were symbolically transferred onto the scapegoat it was further burdened with all marks of reproach, imprecations, and hate. After this the people prayed that all those evils, which were due to themselves, might fall upon the goat rather than on the sinners themselves even though scapegoating cannot clean a depraved conscience.

A depraved conscience denotes a rebellious, pride-inflated mind given over by God to a debased, empty mind (Rom. 1:28) devoid of all true knowledge and judgment; incapable of approving what is truly good:

This accounts for the justness of the divine procedure in leaving them to commit such scandalous iniquities; that since they had some knowledge of God by the light of nature, and yet did not care to retain God in their knowledge; or to own and acknowledge him as God, to worship and glorify him as such; but took every method to erase this knowledge out of their minds, and keep it from others.”   Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible

Pride blinds the miscreant’s vision of the evil thing he or she has become while scapegoating allows for the crucifixion of the scapegoat on the reprobate’s own altar of self-adoration, presumption, and cruelty.

The Middle East is a scapegoating society where rape victims can be stoned to death for ‘causing’ the rapist to rape them.  Now Godless America is rapidly transitioning into a cruel scapegoating society.  This is because great numbers of ‘sinless’ Americans---Leftists, Transhumanists, pagans, Progressive ‘Christians,’ Cultural Marxist social justice warriors and similar self-righteous morally pure hypocrites--- reject their own sinfulness in favor of self-creation, autonomy, 'moral purity,' sacred opinions, and omniscient gut feelings. Thus they defiantly refuse to accept personal responsibility for their own evils while insolently and hypocritically scapegoating other people even as they ‘give thanks’ to their idols for making them perfect:

The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.”  Luke 18:11

Inflated pride, a depraved conscience, and self-righteous hypocrisy are why so-called  social justice warriors scapegoat millions of white people.  It is also why men and women of Sodom scapegoat and crucify ‘hateful homophobic’ Christian men and women while pedophiles and pederasts scapegoat and crucify parents for trying to protect their children from sexual violation.  It is also why liars scapegoat the truthful; thieves, rioters and murderers scapegoat society, and so-called ‘faithful’ ‘Christian’ social justice warriors and critical race theorists scapegoat orthodox white Christians.

"He who sacrifices to any god, other than to the LORD alone, shall be utterly destroyed.”  Exodus 22:20

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of  idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor). The will of the idolater is not in submission to God but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride and a will turned toward wickedness (self) leads to contempt for and outright hatred of the Holy Triune God, neighbor, Truth, moral law, goodness, norms, authority, standards, rules, and institutions in favor of lust for power, greed, perverse sexuality, and dehumanization of other people.

 In the Godless Soviet Union, idolatry, depravity, relativism, and Darwin’s pseudo-scientific evolutionary theory unleashed a murderous blood-thirsty beast that consumed the lives of more than one hundred million men, women, and children:

"As many as 7 million Ukrainians were starved in Soviet Socialist dictator Joseph Stalin's artificial, forced famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. This is approximately the total population of Manitoba, Newfoundland, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island." (Inky Mark, M. P. Dauphin — Swan River House of Commons 2 June 1998, Famine-Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933)

"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, F. M. Pigido -an economist who lived and worked in Ukraine during the Famine of 1932-1933, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)

According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were criminal enterprises in their very essence:

"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)

When a society turns away from the Holy Creator God to deified self, it is an idolatrous society heading for destruction:

“The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear."  Matthew 13: 41-43

Lest we mistakenly perceive idolaters as nice, misunderstood people, in "Journey to the Celestial City," Wayne Martindale sets straight this error with his unvarnished depiction of hell-bound idolaters as haters of good people. All that's left in them is self-centeredness, hate, envy, lies, and thoughts of theft and murder and sadistic pleasure received from hurting other people,, They are evil, violent idolaters who prefer evil thoughts, evil words, evil companions and evil acts. Thus when they encounter good people they,

"...condemn them, perverting their reason by rationalizing evil and finding ways to blame the good or God or religion for their problems and the problems of the world. They already hate goodness because it implicitly condemns the evil they have chosen. They wouldn't like heaven if they could have it. They are, in a sense, already in hell, preferring darkness to light." (Eternal Perspectives, Randy Alcorn, p 76)

When a majority of a society’s citizens are no longer guilty of their own evils, scapegoats are necessary. Human scapegoats will be burdened with the evils of the guilty and cruelly burned on altars of the depraved. Scripture calls this idolatry. and since idolatry leads to the conceptual murder of the Word Who created the heavens and earth (Gen. 1:1; John 1:1, 14) and to the rejection of His work on the cross, this means that by their own choice they assign themselves to hell by judging themselves unfit for Paradise:

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death".  Revelation 21:8

 

Godless America's Idolatrous, Brazenly Hypocritical, Scapegoating Society

"God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. Yet his shadow still looms. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives; who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves?"   Friedrich Nietzsche

In the wake of the conceptualized 'murder' of Jesus Christ, second Person of the Holy Trinity, an anarchy of narcissism, selfishness, defiance, double-thinking, hatred, contempt and envy has overtaken our godless, paganized society. Posing as legal, political, superior personal opinion,  special rights, and hurt feelings, smug self-righteous hypocrital moralists furiously charge President Trump and mainly white socially conservative Christians and like-minded Americans with spurious and guilt-inducing accusations of homophobia, racism, sexism, xenophobia, intolerance and hate.  As this unrelenting reign of terror gains a more complete leverage over our society what follows in its wake is a mobocracy of absurdity, paranoia, scapegoating, brutality, murder, chaos and tyranny.

Exemplifying much of this madness is a Huffington Post article, "Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People." This twisted anthem of shameless self-pity was written by a self-absorbed young black women, an "oppressed" and "racialized" fourth year journalism student at Ryerson University. The self-important egoist who penned this drivel is so blinded by her self-gratifying  presumption that in her demand for safe-spaces she inadvertently confesses to paranoia, a delusion experienced by many narcissists.

After this the people prayed that all those evils which were due to themselves might fall upon the goat rather than on the sinners themselves even though scapegoating cannot clean a depraved conscience.

A depraved conscience is one that is corrupted by pride and other types of wickedness.  Pride hinders and blinds the narcissists' vision of herself as she really is while scapegoating allows the narcissist to crucify 'other' on an altar of self-adoration and presumption .

Thus Truth and the unbearable revelation of her own sin,

"...causes what it was trying to avoid seeing to be set before its eyes. What it had preferred to be hidden behind its back is now brought round and it is forced to confront it face to face." Formerly it had "looked at itself and been very pleased with itself and become a lover of its power. It had lost the ability to look honestly at its own actions and thus justified all its evil deeds. Through its selfishness and self-indulgence it became insolent (and) proud..." (St. Augustine, Sermon 142,3)

Just as the Middle East is a scapegoating society where a victim of rape can be stoned to death by her rapist, America is similarly transitioning into a scapegoating society.  This is because a majority of "sinless" Americans---social justice warriors and similar self-righteous 'morally pure' hypocrites within and without the Christian Church--- reject their own sinfulness in favor of autonomy, 'moral purity,' and depraved "sacred opinions" "feelings" and "choices." Thus they refuse to accept personal responsibility for their own sins while freely and hypocritically scapegoating other people who they unjustly accuse of an ever evolving cornucopia of sins. 

This is why so-called "racialized" people of color scapegoat millions of white people.  It is also why men and women of Sodom scapegoat and terrorize "hateful homophobic" Christian men and women and pedophiles and pederasts scapegoat parents trying to protect their own children from sexual violation..  It is also why liars scapegoat the truthful, thieves, rioters and murderers scapegoat society and unfaithful Christian compromisers scapegoat faithful Christians.

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of  idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor). The will of the idolater is not in submission to God but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride leads to contempt for and outright hatred of the Holy Triune God, neighbor, Truth, moral law, goodness, norms, authority, standards, rules, and institutions in favor of  lust for power, perverse sexuality, and dehumanization of other people.

 In the Godless Soviet Union, idolatry, relativism, and Darwin’s pseudo-scientific evolutionary theory  unleashed a murderous beast that consumed the lives of more than one hundred men, women, and children:

When a society turns away from the Holy Creator God to deified self, it is an idolatrous society heading for destruction:

"Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil."  1 John 3:8

"You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks."  Matthew 12:34

At the root of the rejection of the Holy Triune God is the rebellious assertion that man has not been created by Him, that he is not dependent upon Him for his own life, and not created in His spiritual image.  Instead, the idolator is the creator of God, and the master of time, being, and the world who through his own powers will save himself.

Lest we mistakenly perceive idolaters as nice, misunderstood people, in "Journey to the Celestial City," Wayne Martindale sets straight this error with his unvarnished depiction of hell-bound idolaters as haters of good people. All that's left in them is self-centeredness, hate, envy, lies, and thoughts of theft and murder and sadistic pleasure received from hurting other people,, They are evil, violent idolaters who prefer evil thoughts, evil words, evil companions and evil acts.

Scripture calls this idolatry. and since idolatry leads to the conceptual murder of the Word Who created the heavens and earth (Gen. 1:1; John 1:1, 14) and the rejection of His work on the cross, this means that by their own choice they assign themselves to hell by judging themselves unfit for Paradise.

Marxist Utopianism Invading the Last Bastions of Faithful (Orthodox) Christianity

Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea’s parents were the victims of communism. They were forced to wait 17 years to marry because communists jailed her father before their marriage could take place:

My mother waited all those years for my father, although she didn’t even know if he was still alive.”  (Romanian Doctor Warns Church About Cultural Marxism, Austin Ruse, Breitbart, Oct. 21, 2015)

The doctor, who is president of the Catholic doctors association of Romania, warned that the violent communism that took the lives of millions has been supplanted throughout the West and America by cultural Marxism created by Antonio Gramsci and the Frankfurt School, the progenitors of “gay rights and gender ideology:”  

"Classical Marxism attempted to remake society by the take-over of private property, cultural Marxism “goes deeper; it pretends to redefine family, sexual identity and human nature.”   This ideology which "calls itself progressive…is nothing else than the serpent’s offer for man to take control, to replace God, to arrange salvation, in this world.”

Dr. Cernea’s warning is timely and urgent as there’s a growing trend among conservative Evangelical, PCA, Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, and Roman Catholic thinkers of adopting Marxist-type ideals for political and cultural interaction. One glaring example of this is the widespread,

 “….acceptance and use of the term, social justice.” (How Marxist Thinking is Creeping into the Church, christianintellectual.com) 

Social justice vigilantism is a Balrog’s fiery whip sadistically applied to the minds and bodies of social conservatives by social media’s vicious, virtue-signaling progressive mob:

"Every time I would call someone racist or sexist, I would get a rush. That rush would then be reaffirmed and sustained by the stars, hearts, and thumbs-up that constitute the nickels and dimes of social media validation. The people giving me these stars, hearts, and thumbs-up were engaging in their own cynical game: A fear of being targeted by the mob induces us to signal publicly that we are part of it."  (Confessions of a Former Online Social Justice Warrior, Heidelblog, July 16, 2018)

Another example of Frankfurt School thinking in the church is the use of Critical Race Theory by Mr. Jemar Tisby, a Special Assistant to the Chancellor at Reformed Theological Seminary and Dr. Jarvis Williams, an Associate Professor of New Testament at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.   Both men are enamored of CRT and when they peer through its dark ideological  lens they see an evangelical church polluted by ingrained racism. 

Then they use this illusory ‘data’ to tell the evangelical churches what is required for "racial reconciliation.” (“Critical Race Theory, RTS and SBTS” by William H. Smith, Aquila Report, Mar. 30, 2017)

Rev. Sam Murrell is a black Anglican priest in the Anglican Church in North America who will no longer participate in racial reconciliation services.   As a teacher of worldview Rev. Murrell has identified the myths, lies, and anti-Christ presuppositions operating at the foundation of the concept of racial reconciliation services:

“Words Matter. As people of the Word, language is important and I believe it is time the Church gave up the common use of the word ‘race’ and all of its cognates. They only help to perpetuate an untruth about the nature of mankind. In the anthropology of Scripture, race is an alien concept. Scripture does not speak of ‘the races’ as subsets of humanity, but it does speak of ‘tongues (which can be translated as religions), tribes and nation’.  As long as the Church concedes to the terminology of a Darwinian worldview we will never get closer to modeling the oneness of the Body of Christ for the world that is spoken of in Scripture. The Church must not capitulate to the secular world on this matter and put words into our mouths, and in doing so perpetuate a false reality.” (Why I No Longer Participate in Racial Reconciliation Services, Rev Sam Murrell, Aquila Report, Jan. 25, 2018)

Rev. Murrell is correct.  Anti-Biblical, anti-Christ ideological conceptions have dire consequences. Critical race theory and the perceived need for racial reconciliation services is grounded in Marxist utopianism, mystical Eastern pantheist monism, Darwinism, scientific racism, a hierarchy of races, and sinister Frankfurt School constructs.   Underlying all of this is the perverse Marxist view of traditional American society and traditionalist Americans who support it as fascist, authoritarian, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, mentally ill, and in every way more evil than Hitler’s Germany:

"In Aug., 2003, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the results of their $1.2 million tax-payer funded study.  It stated, essentially, that traditionalists are mentally disturbed.  Scholars from the Universities of Maryland, California at Berkeley, and Stanford had determined that social conservatives...suffer from ‘mental rigidity,' ‘dogmatism,' and ‘uncertainty avoidance,' together with associated indicators for mental illness."  (‘Social and Emotional Learning” edwatch.org, Jan. 26, 2005)  

The Frankfurt School was a Marxist think-tank that invented poisonous psychological mind-control devices such as Political Correctness, Identity Politics, Cultural Determinism, and Critical Theory, the parent of Critical Race Theory.

Critical Theory is a malevolent psychological weapon used to induce confusion, disorientation, cognitive dissonance, loss of identity, and mind-control. For media, Hollywood, academia, and the DNC, Critical Theory is a license to unleash a relentless terroristic onslaught of hatred, contempt, ridicule, and destructive criticism to beat and batter Americans into submission.

Similar to its parent, the aim of Critical Race Theory is pressuring and shaming white conservative Christians into accepting a false burden of racism.

Marxist Utopianism

Marxism is an anti-Christ revolutionary utopian ideology from hell that echoes Scripture in many ways.  One way is that it secularizes eschatology, meaning it is millenarianism without God.

The revolutionary’s utopia represents a complete break with history by-passed by the spirit of evolution and is,

“...always modeled on some image of the lost Paradise, of a legendary Golden Age.”  Hence zealous religious devotion to  “pure Utopia, and revolt against a polluted society, are thus the two poles which provide the tension of all militant creeds.” (“The God that Failed,” Arthur Koestler, p. 16, 12)

Marxism links mankind’s worldly redemption to an oppressed class, combining the Old Testament concept of a chosen people with the New Testament prophecy that the meek shall inherit the earth.  (Heaven on Earth, Joshua Muravchik, p. 341)

Original Marxism’s ‘angels’ was the workers class oppressed by ‘demons’--- evil capitalist victimizers and the church.  In its modern form as Cultural Marxism (also multiculturalism), there are four oppressed classes or races —blacks, homosexuals, illegal aliens, and women.   These are the ‘angels.’

Supposedly, these ‘angels’ are victimized by a demonic host---the genetically racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic oppressor race— the socially conservative mainly white Christian population, particularly straight white men.

Though redemption is not possible for white people since their racism is genetic, it nevertheless begins for them with undiscerning, unthinking, submissive acceptance of their racism and need for confession during racial reconciliation services. Thus the premise of the worship said Rev. Murrell,

 "... is that Whites are guilty because they are White. This is evident in the fact that the white people present at such events are expected, even pressured, to confess the sin of racism even if they cannot recall any specific instances of racist action that they have perpetrated.

 The assumption is that because you are white then you must have knowingly, or unknowingly, caused offense towards Blacks (and maybe other ethnic minorities too). An example of this guilt-by-association is that, although you may be unable to find any instance of slave ownership in your genealogy, you are held accountable for the history of slavery in the United States of America.

 The black person stands as representative of the innocent victim of so-called racism and thus serves a priestly role for the white confessor who is guilty because of a lack of melanin in the epidermis.

 The white person’s pigmentation carries with it a privilege, and that is enough to require repentance."  

In Marxism, no human being is actually redeemable since all humans are depersonalized, soulless aspects of the collective unconscious.  Marxism’s scientifically engineered New Man is merely coalesced complex forms of matter-- a product of evolution and begotten by the Sovereign World State. 

The New Man has lost all sense of individuality and exists drone-like in collectivized (totalized) society as a natural resource, a part of the whole, made for the whole, and relatively worthless if not coalesced within the collective.

Marxism is but one of many modern scientistic ideologies that reduce the human being to a soulless aspect of nature. Like the other systems, Marxism begins its process of social engineering by teaching humans that they are the product of evolution working on matter, thereby allowing them to be deconstructed and depersonalized.  In this way the sense of their individual souls, intellect, free will, and conscience eventually fade to black since all four are shown by ‘science’ to be illusions.

Social engineering allows the New Man to imagine he is a bio-machine or hominid rather than the image bearer of the Triune Creator.  This allows the New Man to sink into passive slavery to instincts and passions.   In short, since the New Man has no real choice, whatever harm he does to others can never be his fault since ’ science’ has liberated the New Man from the burden of freedom.  In this way, the New Man can fully enjoy his earthly rewards as a slave within a deterministic system of cause and effect unless truth and reality invade his collective darkness. Far from redeeming the New Man, social engineering has but brought back the Old Man of 2 Tim. 3:3.

Scientific engineering is based on the proposition that since man has evolved over millions of years from a sub-human past then logically he will evolve over time into something better or “post human.”  

Furthermore, it is the Elect, the already highly evolved and purified post-human race of god-men—the avatars of divine history leading the world to utopia-- who possess the godlike power to scientifically engineer the New Man who worships his ‘creators.’  

Marxism and its contemporary form, Cultural Marxism, are forms of utopianism that posit the notion that science, evolution (the divine creative energy), and technology can fulfill the utopian dream of purging the world of evil on the day of revolution when the oppressed classes, acting as angelic redeemers, damn and destroy the oppressors, the demonic horde.  That day will usher in a heaven on earth. 

Why the Utopian Dream Will Not Die

In his masterful book, “Utopia: The Perennial Heresy,” Thomas Molnar (19210-2010), a Catholic philosopher, historian, and political theorist, writes that utopian systems are illusory patterns of thought with their own strange logic, expectations, and interpretive mechanisms. Thus reality and real data do not substantially influence the utopian thinker since he is able to fit the data, even the Word of God, onto the Procrustean bed of his desires and to find encouragement in the most evil events.  Thus he automatically dismisses realistic appraisals of his utopian schemes as from those who are against Progress, Evolution, Science, Peace, and Plenty.  

Furthermore, in all messianic utopian thinking, Christianity is an arch-enemy because the utopian message of salvation is utterly incompatible with basic Christian doctrine, that of original sin,

“…with its vision of history as the story of the Fall, and its denial of man’s power to attain salvation by his own exertions.  The dichotomies of soul and body, etc., stood condemned before the majesty of the oneness of Life and oneness of History…

For these reasons, Marxist utopians purified the human gene pool in Russia by murdering in excess of 100 million men, women and children of which approximately half were Christians.  According to Srdja Trifkovic, persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century Marxism, and mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Communist Bolshevism,

“….is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history….Attempts at “killing the soul” started only months after the Revolution of 1917.” Persecution and martyrdom was, “several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed. It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime.” (New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com

In the concluding chapter of the third volume of Main Currents of Marxism, the late Leszek Kolakowski, the great Polish philosopher who broke with Communism in the 1970s, substantially agrees with Dr. Molnar’s analysis.   Marxism is a religion of fantasy and irrationalism:

“There are no rational means of predicting the ‘future of humanity’ over a long period or foretelling the nature of ‘social formations’ in ages to come. The idea that we can make such forecasts ‘scientifically,’ and that without doing so we cannot understand the past, is inherent in the Marxist theory of ‘social formations;’ it is one reason why the theory is a fantasy, and also why it is politically effective.

The influence that Marxism has achieved, for from being the result or proof of its scientific character, is almost entirely due to its prophetic, fantastic, and irrational elements. Marxism is a doctrine of blind confidence that a paradise of universal satisfaction is awaiting us just around the corner.

Almost all the prophecies of Marx and his followers have already proved to be false, but this does not disturb the spiritual certainty of the faithful, any more than it did in the case of chiliastic sects: for it is certainty not based on any empirical premises or supposed ‘historical laws,’ but simply on the psychological need for certainty. In this sense Marxism performs the function of a religion, and its efficacy is of a religious character. But it is a caricature and a bogus form of religion, since it presents its temporal eschatology as a scientific system, which religious mythologies do not purport to be. . .”  (The Socialist Dream Will Never Die 2, Steven Hayward, Powerline, Aug. 31, 2015)

And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’  Matthew 7:23

In our time, the last bastions of orthodox Christian faith are being invaded by the heretical conceptions of utopian Marxism, a perennial heresy that from Cain in the preflood world, has been man’s,

"…second oldest faith," man's "great alternative faith," Its promise is "Ye shall be as gods." Its vision is "the vision of man without God," of "man's mind displacing God as the creative intelligence of the world," of "man's liberated mind...redirecting man's destiny." Marxist utopianism proclaims an inescapable choice between two irreconcilable faiths: "God or Man, Soul or Mind, Freedom or Communism." (Whittaker Chambers, The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 92)

Global Leaders and the Occult Meaning of the Victory Arch of the Temple of Ba’al

"The Dying God shall rise again! The secret room in the House of the Hidden Places shall be rediscovered. The Pyramid again shall stand as the ideal emblem of solidarity, inspiration, aspiration, resurrection, and regeneration." (The Secret Teachings of All Ages, Manly P. Hall, page 120)

A recreation of Palmyra’s Arch of Triumph was unveiled in a small park directly outside of New York’s City Hall on Monday, Sept. 2016, almost a year after Islamic State militants destroyed the original structure:

"Standing at two-thirds the scale of the original, the arch is made of Egyptian marble and was built using 3D printing technology, based on photographs of the original arch.” The arch historically served as the entrance to the Temple of Baal," which was then converted to a Christian church and finally, a mosque.”  (Replica of Syrian arch destroyed by Isis unveiled in New York City, Raya Jalabi, The Guardian, Sept. 20, 2016)

Ba’al's Arch of Triumph made its first appearance on April 19, 2016 in Trafalgar Square in London.  Its’ debut coincided “disturbingly with Beltane, a major pagan festival for worshipping Ba’al.” (Arch from Temple of Ba’al to Stand in New York, Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, Breaking Israel News, Sept. 16, 2016)

After staying in New York City for one week the Arch was moved to Dubai for a global summit.  The places chosen for the display of the arch are indisputably centers of globalistic power. Moreover, despite the purely cultural, historical and archaeological significance of the arch, the biblical and spiritual implications must not be missed:

"The arch is representative of the ‘gateway’ to … a Roman temple in Syria that was dedicated to the worship of Baal. It is also a fact that Jesus himself, along with the Jewish religious leaders of His day, defined Baal worship as being directly connected to the worship of Satan and his demonic influence (Matt. 12:24-28, Mark 3:22, Luke 11:18).”  (Historic Artifact Replica, or Demonic Harbinger? Pastor Carl Gallups, WND Exclusive, June 3, 2017)

Global leaders are meddling with dark forces:

In the spiritual realm, it is as if Satan is ‘marking’ his territory,” the pastor said. “And the leaders of the world are gladly doing his bidding – even summonsing his presence and ‘blessings.’ We are living in extremely prophetic times. The demonic realm is engaged in an unprecedented outpouring, just as the Bible said would happen. We are living in the most prophetic times since the first coming of Jesus Christ.” (Carl Gallups)

Why was New York City chosen as a setting for Ba’al’s Victory Arch?

The answer goes back to 1962 when an international occult elite gathered in

Washington D.C. to set plans in motion for the institution, on a global scale, of a Scientific Occult Theocratic State.  Imposition required that the existing Biblically grounded order be stealthily undermined and broken-down into chaos on the assumption that out of chaos a new order would emerge. 

The most important step involved destroying belief in the one true Creator God, orthodox Christianity and faithful Judaism. Toward this goal a Temple of Understanding was erected in Washington D.C. where progressive citizens of the new world order would plan and plot world government and develop a universal occult spirituality.  

Sponsors, backers and planners of the Temple included John D. Rockefeller, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, Swami Prabhavanda of the Vedanta Society; Socialist leader Norman Thomas; Eleanor Roosevelt; Miguel Ydigoras Fuentes, president of Guatemala; the United Lodge of Theosophists; Rev. Fred Jordan, president of International Spiritualists; S.A. Mohamed, cultural attache of the United Arab Republic; many prominent Protestant ministers; eight American Ambassadors and fourteen Ambassadors to the United States. (The Cult of the All Seeing Eye, Robert Keith Spenser, pp. 43,50) 

The occult symbolism chosen for the Temple was the same as for the U.N. Meditation Room--- the All Seeing Eye of a 'dying and rising' Sun god worshipped throughout the world under many different names such as Ba'al, Nimrod, Osiris (god of the underworld), Horus (Osiris resurrected), Dionysus, Apollyon, and Tammuz:

"Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.”   Ezekiel 8:14 

In the apex of the room is a mural, an asymmetrically arranged magic square symbolizing the All-Seeing Eye as the Void, divine energy field or universal spirit from which emanate evolving energies extending into the psyche of mankind.

 For the aspiring initiate, the deeper meaning of the magic cube is the consubstantiality (monistic oneness) of the initiate's divine intellect with the Sun god (Void/universal spirit/ divine energy) above as well as the inward path in which the initiate discovers and experiences the "inner light" (also called the divine spark and inner Christ consciousness). It is a system of occult spiritual doctrine that opens up the mind and the soul to a new level of understanding—salvation comes from within. (Gen. 3:5)

Why the Nations Worship the Sun God

Ancient Near Eastern Scholar Dr. Michael Heiser, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University, explains how and why the nations came to worship the Sun god:

"Deuteronomy 32:8-9 describes how Yahweh's dispersal of the nations at Babel resulted in his disinheriting those nations as his people...the nations were placed under the authority of members of Yahweh's divine council (who became corrupt)…as a judgment from the Most High, Yahweh...God decreed, in the wake of Babel, that the other nations...would have other gods...to worship."  (The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible, pp. 113-114)

Heiser explains that in ancient Ugaritic texts Ba'al was called "king of kings," "most high," "lord of Zaphon," and "prince, lord of the underworld" (zbl banal' arts).  Baal was Beelzebul (Matthew 10:25; 12:24; 12:27) and Baal Zebub, titles associated with Satan, the serpent in Gen. 3.

After the Flood, the faithful Noah remained in the East and established the worship of the true Creator God.  However, eighty years after the Flood Noah's rebellious son Ham and his sons together with other family members departed and eventually settled in the plains of Shinar where they resolved to build a tower, a monument to their own pride, vanity, ambition and rebellion against God. (The Sacred and Profane History of the World Connected, Samuel Shuckford, 1808, p. 94) 

According to early Church Father Clement, it was Ham who preserved and revived the Mystery Religion of Atlantis, magical incantations, and other attendant evils:

 "Fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man. After the flood Ham the son of Noah...discovered this and taught it to his sons. This became ingrained into the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians. Ham died shortly after the fall of the Tower of Babel. Nimrod, called Ninus by the Greeks, was handed this knowledge and by it caused men to go away from the worship of God and go into diverse and erratic superstitions and they began to be governed by the signs in the stars and motions of the planets." (Recognitions of Clement 4.26-29)

After thousands of years Mystery Religion Atlantis/Babylon (Ageless Wisdom Teachings) arrived in the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance.  Its arrival set off an occult explosion and rebellion against the Holy Triune God that continues to deepen and spread within the entirety of Western civilization and much of the Christian church to this day.

In affirmation, Corinne McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson, the politically influential co-authors of "Spiritual Politics: Changing the World from the Inside Out," admit that their book is based on the Ageless Wisdom teachings preserved by occultists since the Egyptian pantheon (27th-30th centuries B.C) and handed down over the ages to modern occultists in the time of the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and on into our own time:

"For centuries, the Ageless Wisdom in the West was shielded from an unprepared public.... The unveiled truths were handed down only orally by individual teachers to tested disciples or by certain religious groups and secret societies, such as the Cabbalists, Druids, Essenes, Sufis, Knights Templar, Rosicrucian's, Freemasons, and others who carefully guarded the teachings down through the centuries. A study of these secret societies would reveal powerful influences on the history of nations...." (Spiritual Politics, McLaughlin, Davidson from "Reinventing Jesus Christ: The New Gospel," Warren Smith, crossroad.to)

The initial explosion resulted in an obsession with goetia (magic way) issuing in the appearance of many grimoire such as The Lesser Key of Solomon, which features an Ars Goetia as its first section. It contains descriptions of the evocation of seventy-two demons, famously edited by Aleister Crowley in 1904 as The Book of the Goetia of Solomon the King.   

Goetic Theurgy, another practice described in the Lesser Key of Solomon, is similar to the book's description of Goetia, but supposedly invokes 'good' spirits.

 Goetia leads to the opening of the inner or souls eye, described by practitioners of the occult as the third eye through which perception of the world is no longer limited to the physical senses. 

The third eye is known as the seat of illumination, intuition and cosmic consciousness, the 7th chakra, the All Seeing Eye of Horus and the Horn of the Unicorn:

"The Temple of Maat in early Egypt was dedicated to the process of opening the Third Eye. The Third Eye is an etheric, or fourth dimensional, eye. It acts as a sensitive receiver and transmitter, by which vibrations of many types can be translated, interpreted and dispersed into our third dimensional brains for gaining wisdom and illumination. Inner planes, thought forms, and higher entities are perceived through the 3rd eye. A clearer sense of cause and effect are acquired." (The Sixth Chakra and Opening the Third Eye, bethcoleman.net)

When the third eye opens the soul may come out of its' body and perceive that it is within the timeless realm of evil spirits. There it will meet with deceiving, malignant spirits such as Philemon, a winged, horned demon who supervised and inspired the writing of Carl Jung's "Seven Sermons to the Dead." Jung described the occasion like this:

"The whole house was...crammed full of spirits. They were packed deep right up to the door, and the air was so thick I could hardly breathe...Then it began to flow out of me, and in the course of three evenings the thing (Septem Sermones ad Mortuos) was written." (Jung relates how his soul departed into the timeless realm)...the mystical land of the dead (and) soon after the....'dead' appeared to me and the result was the Septem Sermones." (To Hell and Back, Maurice S. Rawlings, M.D., p.143)

The German actor Curt Jürgen’s terrifying out-of-body experience took him to the timeless realm called hell where he met the god of death:

"...I had a feeling that life was ebbing from me. I felt powerful sensations of dread (then suddenly everything) turned a glowing red. I saw twisted faces grimacing as they stared down at me (I tried to defend myself but) could no longer shut out the frightful truth: beyond the faces dominating this fiery world were faces of the damned. I had a feeling of despair.... the sensation of horror was so great it choked me. Obviously I was in Hell itself (and then suddenly) the black silhouette of a human figure began to draw near...a woman...with lipless mouth and in her eyes an expression that sent icy shudders down my back. She stretched out her arms...and pulled me by an irresistible force (into) a world filled with...sounds of lamentation.... I asked the figure...who she was. A voice answered: "I am death." (German actor Curt Jürgen's, To Hell and Back, pp. 76-77)

When the European ruling class, represented by German Chancellor Angela Markel, French President Francois Hollande, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Liechtenstein Prime Minister Adrian Hasler, and Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern took part in the opening of the world's longest tunnel under the Swiss Alps, the ceremony was acted out under the gaze of the All Seeing Eye, the symbol of Ba'al/Osiris/Horus---the god of death and the underworld.

Symbolized by the All Seeing Eye, Satan (Ba'al/Beelzebul) is the Egyptian Sun god Osiris, god of death and the underworld, who committed incest with his sister Isis, resulting in the birth of himself as the Sun god Horus.  In Thrace and Greece Ba'al/Osiris is Dionysus, the god of pleasure, partying, wine, human sacrifices and orgiastic sexual rites. To the Phrygians, he is Sabasius, a horned solar god whose emblem is the serpent.  Elsewhere he is Jupiter, Apollyon, Orion, Plutus, Iswara, the Winged One, Adoni, Hermes, Prometheus, Zeus, Bacchus, Ormuz, Apollo, Atus, Bacchus, Shiva, and Moloch.  (Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, Dr. Cathy Burns, p. 359) 

As the European ruling class looked on, graphically sexual and blatantly satanic rituals were performed featuring a baby-faced Lucifer (winged Horus) and Baphomet (the soul of Osiris)--a horned, goat-headed demon, symbol of the Void, Divine Energy, or Universal Spirit and its seething serpent-powered evolutionary energies.   The androgynous horned demon was adored by scantily clad figures repeatedly prostrating themselves before him/her. As the horned god appeared horrific wailing and screaming was heard over the audio system. Then the horned demon simulated sexual acts with several of the male and female performers, many of whom were androgynous. (Europe’s top leaders watch bizarre satanic ceremony opening world’s longest tunnel, Life Site News, Jun. 6, 2016)

Welcome to the occult spirituality and magic way (syncretized Ageless Wisdom Teachings) of the global ruling class who aspire to a Scientific Occult World Order set apart from the Holy Triune God.   

The Aeon of Horus signifies passage of the godhead (unholy spirit of Ba’al/Osiris/Horus) into the initiate who is mastering the ancient magic way of activating the god-within through the opening of the third eye. 

This latest Aeon sees the end of the power and authority of sovereign nations, big institutions, and religions---especially orthodox Christianity—which “all begin to fail spectacularly,”

 “The individual will have the opportunity to become fully liberated, in charge of their own spiritual destiny.”  Paul Dunne, The Magic of the New Aquarian Age and the New Aeon of Horus

"I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him.”  John 5:43

The baby Horus is a sign of satanic victory.  Victory in the evolutionary thinking that has prepared Western global ‘elites' and their followers to embrace occult spirituality (Ageless Wisdom Teachings) and to worship and adore the resurrected Osiris/Ba’al (Antichrist) when he arises.  To occult elitists, this human-god is the messiah—the first perfected product of nature and evolutionary forces. 

"Babylon was a golden cup in the LORD’s hand, making all the earth drunken; the nations drank of her wine; therefore the nations went mad.”  Jeremiah 51: 7, ESV

A new world order is the goal of occult globalists, but its real architects are Apollyon, the destroyer and angel of the bottomless pit, and Ba’al/Beelzebul, the prince of demons. These two high-ranking evil angels, together with their legions of evil spirits, dominate, control, and influence the demonically darkened minds of globalists and their followers.  Thus the New Order is destined to be a living hell on earth:

 "Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.  I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not." (Isaiah 66:1-4)  

 

Gnosis: The Main Expression of Paganized Christianity in the New Age

In the essay, "The Paganization of Biblical Studies," Dr. Peter Jones, Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary in Escondido, Calif., identifies liberalism and/or progressivism as a form of neo-Gnostic paganism, or mystical pantheism.   

Though Gnosticism emerged in ancient Babylon during the Jewish exile and eventually developed a 'Christian' variant, neo-Gnostic 'Christianity' first developed in 19th century Germany.  Its first real manifestation was at the University in Tubingen where an apostate Christian theologian named Ferdinand Baur (1792-1860) had formed a school of theology which would raise questions about the Christian faith, a tactic designed to undermine its status as the fount of truth and moral law through destructive criticism.  (1) Among areas which came under attack were the person of Jesus Christ, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the fall and nature of sin, the authority of the Bible, the way of spiritual salvation, apostolic tradition and Church doctrine.

By far the most heretical and destructive incursion into divine truth was the neo-Gnostic assertion of the immanence of God at the expense of His transcendence (separateness from His creation) so that the personal Creator becomes an impersonal expression of an evolving cosmic process. (1)

Neo-Gnostic 'Christianity' has absorbed and radically reinvented and inverted the Bible,  thus Peter Jones describes the essence of liberalism throughout its history as the importation,

"...into the church via the use of Christian terminology...the various historic expressions of pagan notions, in particular, the denial of God's transcendence.   In this sense, the first "liberals" were the Gnostics.  Certainly a form of Gnosticism, sometimes called proto-Gnosticism is behind the denial of the incarnation in the Johannine epistles, and of the resurrection in the early and later Paulines.   Interestingly, the Liberals of the modern period have had a great admiration for the proto-Gnostics, in particular, Marcion.  In A.D. 150, Marcion, a theologian from Pontus in Asia Minor, was excommunicated from the Church in Rome for heretical teaching.  He dismissed God the Creator, the Old Testament, the Mosaic law, and three of the gospels. From the few epistles of Paul that he accepted, he expunged Old Testament quotations and claimed to worship the "alien god" behind the God of Scripture." (Dr. Peter Jones, 2007, truthxchange.com) 

Dave Doveton, Canon theologian and Director of the Training Centre for Ministries and Community in the Anglican Diocese of Mauritius holds that the Gnostic temptation is at the root of every Christian error and heresy:

"In gnosis everything is the intellectual self-production of the individual."  Gnosis is the pretension of a self-redemption of man "who does not need the intervention of the Other of (One) on High, that is the intervention of God." (The Episcopal Church: the Way of Baalam, Dave Doveton...False Teachers and the re-appearance of ancient Gnostic beliefs, reviewed by David W. Virtue, virtueonline.org, March 28, 2011)

In "The Pagan Temptation," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), writes that the gnostic pagan temptation is never very far from a civilization organized by the Christian religion because  what paganism and the occult promise is self-created, deified humanity whose soul is "no longer touched by God." (The Pagan Temptation, p. 3)

The atheist claims there is no living God "up above" (in the third heaven) and that matter or energy in motion is all there is.  This view, however, has already been eclipsed by the thinking of neo-Gnostic mystical pantheists such as Hartford Seminary professor of liturgy worship and spirituality, Miriam Therese Winter.  Winter teaches:

 "Our Mother who is within us we celebrate your many names. Your wisdom come. Your will be done, unfolding from the depths within us..."  (ibid, Dave Doveton, virtueonline.org)

Thomas Molnar writes that the idea that "Our Mother who is within us" or perhaps a "divine spark" within us or maybe "world spirit," "One Spirit," "spirit of the age," "Spirit" "Christ consciousness," "deepest self," "Universal Mind," or "divine essence" is the spontaneous bent, 

"...of the archaic mind which predominated in most parts of the world and which threatens to prevail once more in our time the temptation. to identify God and self, to recognize in the soul a divine substance, indeed the seat of divinity." ("The Gnostic Tradition and Renaissance Occultism," Thomas Molnar, The Journal of Christian Reconstruction, Vol.1, No.2, 112, 1974)

Now that the supernatural Triune God "up above" is dead in the hearts of millions of Westerners, man's mandate in the gnostic-pagan process of conscious evolution depends upon the initiative of man, said the mystical pantheist heretic Teilhard de Chardin.  Christians should not fear the process of evolution because it only brings them inexorably into "oneness" or "convergence" with the impersonal, omni-gendered divine substance, Monad, Spirit or Universal Mind:

"Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is nothing but a magnificent means of feeling more at one with God...In a spiritually converging world, the "Christic" energy acquires an urgency and intensity of another order altogether." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 590)

Dave Doveton says the Gnostic pagan tendency places gnosis and/or inner knowing---intellectual pride, personal feelings and mystical experience---above clear scriptural teaching, and this tendency is behind the decisions of the Episcopal Church  to permit the 'blessing' of same sex unions.    In other words, said Doveton, gnosis can overturn the,

"....pervasive, absolute and strong biblical prohibition of same-gender sexual relations which has been interpreted as such and upheld by the church for two millennia..." (ibid, virtueonline.org

The Gnostic paganization of Biblical studies can be summarized thusly:

1. The Gnostic doctrine of the migration and/or evolutionary progress of the soul results in spiritual elitism

2. Gnostic influence reduces faith to inner knowing and feelings

3. The Gnostic idea of salvation is similar to forms of Hinduism and Buddhism calling for absorption into the One Substance

4. Gnostics believe that man's problem is not sin but ignorance  

5. For the Gnostic, the problem is not 'original sin' but the captivity of divine spirit in the material body

6. For Katherine Jefferts Schori, 26th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States, Jesus, or Teilhard's 'Christus energy," is not the Incarnate Word but the route to the impersonal God for Christians.

7. Since evolution implies continuous change, becoming, and/or progress, Gnostic pagans claim that there is nothing immutable about the authority of Holy Scripture.   Holy Scripture and by extension the traditional church are subject to change because everything is infused with impersonal divine spirit in continuous process of change, therefore Holy Scripture, truth, moral law and tradition live and evolve and  must in fact be changed as their purpose is to express the inner knowing and feelings of each new generation.  

8. Because feelings and inner knowing are 'divine' Gnosticism is bound up with victimhood.  This enables anyone with hurt feelings or gnosis to both claim the high moral ground and invent various 'identities' which demand not only special privileges (i.e., 'gay' marriage) and protection (i.e., safe spaces, hate crime laws, speech codes) but immunity from critique. 

9.Gnostics regard "consciousness" - individual (state of mind) and collective social as of primary importance.   This mystical pantheist notion is expressed repeatedly in Gnostic pagan writings  in terms such as "immanence", "consciousness raising," the "world spirit", "the One Spirit," "the spirit of the age," "the Spirit" "oneness" "Christ consciousness" "we are the world" "collective consciousness" and other like terms.  Since this "spirit" is always evolving and changing with the dominant ideas of the age not only must religion change but behavior, no matter how criminal, decadent, rebellious, and obscene is of secondary importance. 

10. For many churchmen in the Episcopal Church sin is not a breach of right behavior but rather, "sin lies not in the specific actions but in the context and intention with which it is performed and received."  

When Atlanta pastor Louie Giglio was effectively disinvited from delivering an inaugural prayer at President Obama's second inauguration and was replaced by 'gay affirming' Rev. Dr. Luis Leon, Dr. Albert Mohler noted that America has begun a new chapter in its downward spiraling moral revolution.  

From now on said Mohler,  if you believe in and teach God's Revelation and Christian truth you will be required to offer public repentance and evidence of having 'evolved' on the issue in question:

"This is what is now openly demanded of Christians today. If you want to avoid being thrown off the program, you had better learn to evolve fast, and repent in public." (The Giglio Imbroglio---the Public Inauguration of a New Moral McCarthyism, Albert Mohler, Jan. 10, 2013, AlbertMohler.com)  

Dr. Peter Jones warns that we are in the presence of a powerful pagan/Gnostic theological agenda, claiming to be spanking new, objective, scientific, and Christian but is in fact both Godless and as old as the hills:

"It is my belief that this trend in biblical studies is part of the setting in place of a pagan reconstruction of human culture for the planetary era.  Gnosis in one form or another is expected to become the main expression of secular religion in the new millennium. In order to equip the Church for this new age, the scientific study of Gnosticism is vital." (The Paganization of Biblical Studies, Peter Jones)

The Frankfurt School, Cultural Marxism and Racial Reconciliation Services: the Connections

Rev. Sam Murrell is a black Anglican priest in the Anglican Church in North America who will no longer participate in racial reconciliation services.   As a teacher of worldview Rev. Murrell has identified the myths, lies, and anti-Christ presuppositions operating at the foundation of the concept of racial reconciliation services:

“Words Matter. As people of the Word, language is important and I believe it is time the Church gave up the common use of the word ‘race’ and all of its cognates. They only help to perpetuate an untruth about the nature of mankind. In the anthropology of Scripture, race is an alien concept. Scripture does not speak of ‘the races’ as subsets of humanity, but it does speak of ‘tongues (which can be translated as religions), tribes and nation’. As long as the Church concedes to the terminology of a Darwinian worldview we will never get closer to modeling the oneness of the Body of Christ for the world that is spoken of in Scripture. The Church must not capitulate to the secular world on this matter and put words into our mouths, and in doing so perpetuate a false reality. God’s Word has this right; there is one ‘race’ and many scattered tongues, tribes and nations. Many anthropologists agree that the 19th-century idea of many ‘races’ is not a biological reality but rather a myth. My point here is not to argue the science but to emphasize worldview.” (Why I No Longer Participate in Racial Reconciliation Services, Rev Sam Murrell, kuyperian.com, Jan. 20, 2018)

Rev. Murrell is absolutely correct.  Worldview and worldview presuppositions (foundations) absolutely matter! Racial reconciliation is a Darwinian and sociopolitical construct of socialistic Progressive Leftism and its religiously pagan counterpart, Liberal and/or Progressive Christianity and is therefore a lie from Hell..

At the level of presupposition, Progressive Leftism and Progressive Christianity otherwise known as Cultural Marxism, are revamped and revised forms of ancient pagan evolutionary pagan materialism (Acts 17: 18-19) syncretized with heretical Protestantism, making Progressive Christianity not Christian at all but rather neo-pagan and sociopolitical theology of  Godless humanism passing itself off as Christian.  It is in fact sexually perverse idolatrous nature worship grounded in an esoteric evolutionary cosmology.

 Neo-pagan materialism belongs to the family of Naturalism, which refers to the view that nature is the Ultimate Substance (i.e.,evolving energy field or star stuff according to Carl Sagan) out of which the universe and all life evolved, thus "all is one."   C. S. Lewis describes naturalism as a box with its top sealed tightly closed in order to keep out the Triune God and the supernatural realm.  The ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Ionians, and Aztecs were, for example, naturalists.  In this view there is but one realm (the material or natural) as opposed to Christianity's creation model with its two interacting realms: natural (the seen) and supernatural (the unseen).

 Because “all is one,” or in “solidarity,” the linchpin of Progressive Christianity, as with Cultural Marxist Progressive Leftism, is cultural determinism, the parent of identity politics and group solidarity. In this way of thinking  non-socialist societies are composed largely of genetically racist, homophobic oppressors and their oppressed victims.  The alleged cause of this oppressor/oppressed social arrangement,

"...is the economic system of free-market capitalism, which is viewed by the left as the root of all manner of social ills and vices – racism, sexism, alienation, homophobia, imperialism. In the calculus of the left, capitalism is an agent of tyranny and exploitation that presses its boot upon the proverbial necks of a wide array of victim groups – blacks and other minorities, women, homosexuals, immigrants, and the poor, to name but a few. That is why according to the left, the United States (historically the standard-bearer of all capitalist economies) can only do wrong." (DiscoverTheNetwork)

In its turn, cultural determinism is birthed by the Darwinian idea that man is nothing but a product of creative evolutionary energies.  Thus man is a bio machine or soulless hominid whose  identity is genetically determined for example, by his skin color or his sexual and/or erotic preferences.  This proposition rejects the concepts of the human spirit/soul (imago Dei), personhood, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience (paired with personal accountability and responsibility) because it emphatically denies the existence of the supernatural Triune God.  

The contemporary Progressive Left and its religiously pagan counterpart hold that non-socialist societies are composed largely of genetically racist, homophobic, bigoted, mentally ill oppressors and their oppressed victims:

 "The alleged cause of this social arrangement is the economic system of free-market capitalism, which is viewed by the left as the root of all manner of social ills and vices -- racism, sexism, alienation, homophobia, imperialism. In the calculus of the left, capitalism is an agent of tyranny and exploitation that presses its boot upon the proverbial necks of a wide array of victim groups -- blacks and other minorities, women, homosexuals, immigrants, and the poor, to name but a few. That is why according to the left, the United States (historically the standard-bearer of all capitalist economies) can only do wrong.”  (DiscovertheNetwork)

Progressive Christianity is a 'death of God' theology that rejects the supernatural Triune God, hates the Gospel, reduces Jesus Christ to mere mortal, and is more about being properly positioned and seen as against manufactured evils,

 “…how “moral” and “religious” they look to other like-minded people choosing ‘love’ over ‘hate’ – rather than genuine concern for the people/groups these “evils,” it’s claimed, negatively effect. It’s self-congratulatory virtue vanity, it’s empty, and it violates Jesus’ admonition against practicing one’s righteousness before men instead of calling those they claim to represent to a higher standard of living as disciples of Christ." (Progressive Christians to Take Back Their Faith After Election, Derryck  Green, The Aquila Report)

The Connections

The carefully concealed connections between Progressive Christianity, Progressive Leftism, Cultural Marxism, the Frankfurt School's Theodor Adorno and racial reconciliation services is hatred of the Triune God and His Christ and Western and American civilization because it is grounded in Christianity. 

Karl Marx makes very clear his burning hatred of the Christian God in his poem "The Pale Maiden" where he declares war upon  God and the world created by Him.   Marx also admits the existence of his soul, heaven and hell: 

"Thus heaven I've forfeited; I know it full well; My soul, once true to God; Is chosen for hell." (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 22)

"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority....Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done....Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds." (Mikhail Bakunin, comrade of Marx, ibid, p. 27)

In anticipation of the revolutionary storm that would baptize the world in an inferno of red terror, wholesale destruction and rivers of blood leading to its rebirth as the promised land of social justice and proletarian equality-Frederich Engels wrote, (1)

"All the...large and small nationalities are destined to perish...in the revolutionary world storm... (A general war will) wipe out all...nations, down to their very names.  The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only reactionary classes...but...reactionary peoples."  ("The Magyar Struggle," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, Jan. 13, 1849)

But by the end of WWI, socialists realized that something was amiss, for the world's proletariat had not heeded Marx's call to rise up in bloody opposition to evil capitalism and embrace communism instead.  

Wondering what had gone wrong two Marxist theorists-Antonio Gramsci of Italy and Georg Lukacs of Hungary-concluded that the Christianized West was the obstacle standing in the way of a Godless communist new world order.  The West would have to be de-Christianized first.

Gramsci posited that because Christianity had been dominant in the West for over 2000 years, not only was it fused with Western civilization, but it had corrupted the workers class.  The West would have to be stealthily de-Christianized, undermined, demoralized and corrupted by Marxist operatives through a "long march through the culture."  Additionally, a new proletariat must be created.  In his "Prison Notebooks," he suggested that the new proletariat be comprised of criminals and bitter, resentful women and racial minorities.

The new battleground, reasoned Gramsci, would be the culture. Starting with the traditional family it would completely engulf and corrupt churches, seminaries, schools, media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, science, and history.  All of these institutions must be radically transformed and the social and cultural order gradually turned upside-down with the new proletariat placed in power at the top.

In 1923, the Frankfurt School--a Marxist think-tank--was founded in Weimar Germany.  Among its founders were Georg Lukacs, Herbert Marcuse, and Theodor Adorno.  The school was a multidisciplinary effort which included sociologists, sexologists, and psychologists. 

The primary goal of the Frankfurt School was to translate Marxism from economic terms into cultural terms. It would provide the ideas on which to base a new political theory of revolution against traditional culture and on identifying and demonizing 'new' victimizers as well as the new 'oppressed' groups. Smashing religion, morals, the church, and family, it would also build a constituency among academics who could build careers studying and writing about the new 'victimizers,' (traditional Americans) and their oppressed victims. 

Toward this end, Marcuse-who favored polymorphous perversion-expanded the ranks of Gramsci's new proletariat by including homosexuals, lesbians, and transsexuals.  Into this was spliced Lukacs obscenely perverse sex education and cultural terrorism tactics.  Gramsci's ‘long march' was added to the mix, and then all of this was wedded to Freudian psychoanalysis and psychological conditioning techniques. The end product was Cultural Marxism, now known in the West as multiculturalism.

Additional intellectual firepower was required: a diabolical theory to pathologize who and what was to be destroyed. In 1950, the Frankfurt School augmented Cultural Marxism with Theodor Adorno's idea of the ‘authoritarian personality.'  This concept is premised on the notion that Christianity, morality, capitalism, and the traditional family create a character prone to racism and fascism.  Thus anyone---but especially white Christian conservatives-- who upholds America's traditional moral values and institutions is a priori guilty of both racism and fascism.  Children raised by traditional values parents, we are told to believe, will almost certainly become racists and fascists.  By extension, if fascism and racism are endemic to America's traditional culture upheld by white Christian conservatives and Americas middle class, then everyone raised in the traditions of the Christian God, family, Biblical morality, patriotism, gun ownership, private property, and free markets is in need of psychological help.

The pernicious influence of Adorno's ‘authoritarian personality' idea can be clearly seen in some of the research that gets public money.

"In Aug., 2003, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the results of their $1.2 million tax-payer funded study.  It stated, essentially, that traditionalists are mentally disturbed.  Scholars from the Universities of Maryland, California at Berkeley, and Stanford had determined that social conservatives...suffer from ‘mental rigidity,' ‘dogmatism,' and ‘uncertainty avoidance,' together with associated indicators for mental illness."  (Social and Emotional Learning," edwatch, Jan. 26, 2005)  

In the ever-evolving sophistry of malicious American Progressives, racism exists in the DNA of white traditionalists:

"Our pro-cross dressing President apparently doesn’t think people have DNA that makes them male or female. But he has just told an interviewer that white people and others have DNA that makes them racist and that American institutions are racist, too. These claims are described by our media as “bold” rather than bizarre racial slurs....It’s highly ironic that Obama would lecture others about racism, since he was admittedly “schooled” in anti-white racism by communist atheist Frank Marshall Davis. One Davis poem, “Christ is a Dixie Nigger,” dismissed Jesus Christ as “another New White Hope.”  (Obama Talks DNA Based Racism on Comedy Show, Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy in Media, June 22, 2015)

Theodor Adorno crafted his authoritarian personality idea so as to pathologize America's traditionalists--the socially conservative, mainly white Christian population.  After years of terroristic psychological bullying to beat down and bring white people into submissive acceptance of their a priori guilt, the time was ripe to infiltrate the orthodox Christian church with a subset of Adorno's idea: racial reconciliation services where the premise,

"... of the worship service is that Whites are guilty because they are White. This is evident in the fact that the white people present at such events are expected, even pressured, to confess the sin of racism even if they cannot recall any specific instances of racist action that they have perpetrated. The assumption is that because you are white then you must have knowingly, or unknowingly, caused offense towards Blacks (and maybe other ethnic minorities too). An example of this guilt-by-association is that, although you may be unable to find any instance of slave ownership in your genealogy, you are held accountable for the history of slavery in the United States of America. The black person stands as representative of the innocent victim of so-called racism and thus serves a priestly role for the white confessor who is guilty because of a lack of melanin in the epidermis. The white person’s pigmentation carries with it a privilege, and that is enough to require repentance."  Rev. Sam Murrell

As Rev. Murrell noted, racial reconciliation services are from Satan and have no place in the orthodox Christian church.  Yet recently, the PCA {Presbyterian Church of America) demonstrated a woeful lack of discernment with the release of a fairly in-depth report on racial reconciliation:  http://www.pcaac.org/racial-and-ethnic-reconciliation-study-committee-report/

As faithful orthodox Christians we must own our personal sins and confess them to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but stand against the stealthy snares set for us by sinister, spiteful God-haters.  Furthermore, we must not allow God-haters to abominate the Genesis account with their evolutionary theories or to persuade us accept a false-burden of guilt and the need to submit to racial reconciliation.  Do not listen to unrepentant Godless Pied Pipers on the fast track to Hell.

1. Cultural Marxism, Linda Kimball, American Thinker, Feb. 15, 2007

 

THE LEFT KILLS AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT TWICE: The Left is not fighting racism, sexism, homophobia, income inequality or war. It is fighting us.

The cult of the left worships history as the tea leaves forecasting an inevitable future. It is convinced that if it can rewrite history, it will write the future. It does this, as everything else, through lies, special pleading, hysterical outrage, self-righteous threats and finally the inevitable violence.

“No one would wish to hurt me,” President McKinley had said. Czolgosz, Obama and the Arcata City Council disagree. They want to hurt him. And all the rest of us. 

Judgement and Wrath: The Biblical Explanation for Madness and Evil

The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche predicted that the death of the Christian God would unleash madness that over time would eventually infiltrate every area of Western and American life.   That time is now.

 In 2013, AP award winning columnist Richard Larsen described American culture as warped and twisted with few core values and a perverted sense of propriety. (Our Culture Of Deranged Values, Larsen, Western Journalism, July 2, 2013 )

From an almost boundless menu of madness, Larsen selects a few:  

1. You can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally.

2. School children have to get parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion or take a morning after pill.

3. We have politicians who want to ban law-abiding citizens from owning guns but give fighter jets to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and want to give weapons to the resistance in Syria that beheads opponents and eats their hearts.

4.  A seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is cute, but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.

5. You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself luxuries, while your neighbor buys iPhones, TV’s, and new cars; and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage.

6. School children are allowed to spew the most vulgar words and expressions, but face suspension if they talk openly about God or Jesus Christ.

Such madness evidencing the devolution of our culture could go on inexorably, said Larsen, but clearly, we are a ludicrous, nihilistic, upside-down society of skewed priorities and values, shaped by convoluted notions of what acceptable or politically correct behavior should be:

" Common sense, once common, is no more. It truly makes one wonder if there’s any hope for us. The prophet Isaiah said, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” It’s a morally dark day in America, and it’s getting darker." (ibid)

Once the citadels of Christianity, contemporary Western and American societies are now Godless, nihilistic, idolatrous, esoteric neo-pagan and mystical pantheist societies that dehumanize and disintegrate imago dei (the unique imprint God placed upon humanity), and openly promote vice (sin). 

For more than seventy years this disastrous and still unfolding state of affairs has convinced many perceptive thinkers to believe that Western civilization has shifted to decline, disintegration and atrophy.  For example, more than sixty years ago, German sociologist Karl Mannheim saw that Western civilization was in sharp decline and is even  now "collapsing before our eyes." (Man and Society: In an Age of Reconstruction, Mannheim, p. 15)

 Western and American society is now variously described in such terms as post-capitalist (Ralf Dahrendorf), post-bourgeois (George Lichtheim),post-modern (Amitai Etzioni),  post-literary (Marshall McLuhan), post-civilized (Kenneth Boulding), post-traditional (S.N. Eisenstadt), post-historic (Roderick Seidenberg), post-industrial (Daniel Bell), post-Puritan, post-Protestant and post-Christian (Sidney Ahlstrom).  (Faith and History: A Comparison of Christian and Modern Views of History, pp. 162f, from "Idols for Destruction, Herbert Schlossberg, p. 2)

This outpouring of pessimism and despair is what we ought to expect from mainly secular intellectuals. Their religiously pagan worldview within its' closed system (anti-supernatural universe) positing the evolutionary ascent of man from primordial matter to a more perfect state leaves them confounded as well as spiritually and morally impoverished.   But supernatural Christian theism along with its Hebraic antecedents and in particular its' doctrines of creation ex nihilo and  eschatology (Rev. 22:13) are explicit statements that history has both a definite beginning and end.  Events between these two boundary stones have meaning relevant to the 'death of God,' moral decay, idolatry, perversely sexualized nature worship and collapse of Western and American civilization.

In order that we may understand the spirit of madness sweeping through our decaying, 'death of God' society Herbert Schlossberg, author of Idols for Destruction, as well as a leading scholar on the relationship between Christianity and the societies in which it has existed, proposes that we use idolatry as a framework for comprehension.   The biblical explanation of madness and depravity in connection with the end of society resides in the concept of judgment upon an idolatrous people, who being evil and perilous to their own existence and that of others, have liberated themselves from  God's perfect law.  

According to Pastor R. Mark Musser, author of "Nazi Oaks: The Green Sacrifice of the Judeo-Christian Worldview in the Holocaust," the worship of the Holy God as the Creator and human ethics go hand in hand in the Mosaic Law.   The first four commandments demand love for the Holy God.  Commandment five demands love for parents, and commandments six through ten demand love for other people.  Man was thus commanded to worship and love God as His Maker,
 
"and the best way to fulfill this was to treat one's neighbor with love and respect precisely because he too was made in God's image."(p. 47)
 
As such, the entire Mosaic code was written with the reality of Genesis 1 (creation ex nihilo) in mind, "and once this truth was forgotten or compromised by idolatrous nature worship,"  love and respect for both God and man inevitably diminishes as the fundamental distinction between man and nature becomes increasingly blurred:

"Darwin put an end to the belief that the animal and vegetable species bear no relation to oneanother (and) that they were created by God, and hence immutable." (Vladimir Lenin, Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9)

Scripture depicts a societies' people as either having submitted themselves to their Maker, the Triune God and His moral law, or else as ungodly idolaters who have rebelled against him. The judgment and wrath of God is a divine response to Godless idolaters.  This is how the Old Testament portrays Israel.  Israel had become an evil nation of idolaters fully deserving the judgment God brought against it.  Its' rebellion against God was accompanied by a turning to idols, and this self-serving Godlessness and unrighteousness brought the nation to its' end:

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth."  Romans 1:18

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of  idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor). The will of the idolater is not in submission to God but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride leads to contempt for and outright hatred of God the Father Almighty  and neighbor, unchanging truth, moral law, goodness, wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, and institutions in favor of  lust for power, perverse sexuality, and dehumanization of other people.  In the Soviet Union, Darwinism unleashed madness which resulted in psychological and physical slavery, population control schemes,  brutality, terror, mass-murder (genocide) and man-made famines:

"As many as 7 million Ukrainians were starved in Soviet Socialist dictator Joseph Stalin's artificial, forced famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. This is approximately the total population of Manitoba, Newfoundland, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island." (Inky Mark, M. P. Dauphin — Swan River House of Commons 2 June 1998, Famine-Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933)

"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, F. M. Pigido -an economist who lived and worked in Ukraine during the Famine of 1932-1933, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)

"... On one side, millions of starving peasants, their bodies often swollen from lack of food; on the other, soldiers, members of the GPU carrying out the instructions of the dictatorship of the proletariat. They had gone over the country like a swarm of locusts and taken away everything edible; they had shot or exiled thousands of peasants, sometimes whole villages; they had reduced some of the most fertile land in the world to a melancholy desert." (ibid, Malcolm Muggeridge, British foreign correspondent, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)

"Food is a weapon." (ibid, Maxim Litvinov — Soviet Commissar of Foreign Affairs)

According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were criminal enterprises in their very essence:

"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)

 Marxist Communists systematically stole the personal property of Russians, confiscated and sexually perverted their children, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

"About 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union, a Russian commission reported this week. In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the country's mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyed" Clergymen were crucified on churches' holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled," said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. The commission prepared the report for Russian President Boris Yeltsin. "I was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter," Yakovlev said. "It was total cruelty."  (paulbogdanor.com)

How many died in all? Estimates vary from a low of 160,000,000 to a high of 300,000,000 men, women and children worked to death, burned in ovens, gassed, starved, shot, knifed, electrocuted, tortured to death, hung, crucified, and cruelly murdered in many other ways. 

For more than two centuries Western and American ‘death of God’ religious and culture leaders  have disregarded God even though the evil effects were mostly confined to their own circles.  But then they deliberately desecrated Western and American Christian tradition and lived in ways that would have spelled disaster if emulated by rank and file citizens said Os Guinness:

“But now in the early twenty-first century, their movement from disregard to desecration to decadence is going mainstream, and the United States is only the lead society among those close to the tipping point.... Soon, as the legalization and then normalization of polyamory, polygamy, pedophilia and incest follow the same logic as that of abortion and homosexuality, the socially destructive consequences of these trends will reverberate throughout society until social chaos is beyond recovery.” (Renaissance: The Power of the Gospel However Dark the Times, Os Guinness, p. 20)

The moment has indeed arrived for pedophile sex rings and sex slavery in our idolatrous, dehumanized post-Christian culture:

"In 2005, the world was introduced to reclusive billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, friend to princes and an American president, a power broker with the darkest of secrets: He was also a pedophile, accused of recruiting dozens of underage girls into a sex-slave network, buying their silence and moving along, although he has been convicted of only one count of soliciting prostitution from a minor. Visitors to his private Caribbean island, known as “Orgy Island,” have included Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Stephen Hawking.”  (The ‘Sex Slave’ Scandal That Exposed Pedophile Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, Maureen Callahan, New York Post, Oct. 9,

In declaring the nonexistence of the supernatural dimension and the death of the Holy God Creator of heaven and earth and two thousand years of Christian witness, Western society is systematically replacing the living Holy God with "idolatrous self"and nature (Gaia);  the Word (John 1) with evolutionary energy or Christ consciousness; Holy Scripture with scientism as the only legitimate form of knowledge; man as Gods spiritual image-bearer with evolved ape-man as god; the Ten Commandments with relativism; and sin and free will with natural causation, a process commonly referred to as secularization.  

Whatever man places at the top of his idolatrous pyramid of self-gratifying, self-glorifying values is ultimately what he serves and this profoundly affects the way he lives and interacts with the people around him or her.  

When a society turns away from the Holy Triune God to deified self, it is an idolatrous society heading for destruction because at the root of the rejection of the living God is the rebellious assertion that man has not been created by Him, that he is not dependent upon Him for his own life, and not created in His spiritual image. He is not dependent upon the living God but is rather a man-god, the creator of God, and the master of time, being, and the world who through his own powers will save himself.

But as the days of (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Matthew 24:37

Scripture tells us that prior to the return of Jesus Christ at the end of history, the nations of the earth will have become evil swamps of idolatrous tyrants who have forgotten their own souls, believe that all that exists is the evolving universe of psychic energy, and prefer evil over good.  Earth and its idolatrous citizenry will have deteriorated to the Godless condition that it had been during Noah's day.    

Lest we mistakenly perceive idolaters as nice, misunderstood people, in "Journey to the Celestial City," Wayne Martindale sets straight this error with his unvarnished depiction of hell-bound idolaters as haters of good people. All that's left in them is self-centeredness, hate, envy, lies, and thoughts of theft and murder and sadistic pleasure received from hurting other people,, They are evil, violent idolaters who prefer evil thoughts, evil words, evil companions and evil acts. Thus when they encounter good people they,

"...condemn them, perverting their reason by rationalizing evil and finding ways to blame the good or God or religion for their problems and the problems of the world. They already hate goodness because it implicitly condemns the evil they have chosen. They wouldn't like heaven if they could have it. They are, in a sense, already in hell, preferring darkness to light." (Eternal Perspectives, Randy Alcorn, p 76)

Since idolatry leads to the conceptual murder of God and the rejection of His work on the cross, this means that by their own choices they assign themselves to hell by judging themselves unfit for Paradise.   In affirmation, C.S. Lewis says that Hell is of their choosing:

"There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, in the end, 'Thy will be done.' All that are in Hell chose it."
