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
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
