Demonic Mendacity of the Gnostic Progressive Left

Since the Sexual Liberation movement of the '60s,  America has been experiencing an explosion of neo-Gnostic pagan movements in concert with a relentless assault on unchanging 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 mystical, quasi-Buddhist, occult Gnostic, and other ‘blood and soil’ notions: New Age cults, Satanism, transcendental meditation, Wicca, goddess worship, ‘gay’ shamanism, reincarnation, Luciferian Theosophy, the Great Apes Project and all other animal rights agendas, Gaia worship, deep ecology, channeling and other such notions. All are types of pantheism, which stress in one way or another that mankind is ‘one with’ nature ( the evolving universe of psychic energy and matter) and should therefore make obeisance to it as Sovereign.

In his penetrating analysis of the Gnostic Progressive Left, 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 Leftist 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, which is precisely why Al Gore is synonymous with Gaia, global warming, and carbon footprints, and the Left in general is so very ‘green.’  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 Gnostic Left has been busily engaged in stealthily undermining and gutting our founding documents and America’s social, political, legal, and cultural infrastructures. Toward this end, they’ve managed to marginalize and deconstruct the Declaration of Independence—the charter document—and to cleverly infiltrate new and alien meaning into our Constitution. Whereas originally, the individual’s right to liberty was viewed as God-given---thus fixed and unchanging---the Holy Trinity has been declared dead and subsequently replaced by both a divine energy identified as 'natural selection,' and a mystical god-State, while group privileges are increasingly sweeping away individual rights. And where each and every human life possesses an ‘inalienable right to life’ was held as an immutable truth and a universal moral good, the ‘scientifically enlightened’ politically correct view holds that truth and morality are irrelevant and human life without value, dignity, or purpose. Taking the place of our inalienable right to life is politically correct choice. In reality, choice is an 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, and the abomination called partial birth abortion---which is tantamount to infanticide---are ‘good.’

However, despite these and the Gnostic Left’s many other successful changes toward the transvaluation or total inversion of America’s traditional cultural, social, political, and legal order, our Second Amendment rights remain a primary concern to the totalitarian ambitions of Leftists. They want are our guns because a weaponless people are a helpless people.

Various Leftists and their ilk predicted long ago that they and an interconnected network of accomplices throughout academia, the entertainment world, government, and elsewhere, would bring about the fall of the West by way of a ‘long walk through the culture.’ A diabolically conceived ‘walk’ that would condition our minds, demoralize us, and slowly invert our traditional order by disarming, dumbing-down, and putting Westerners ‘to sleep’ (enslaving them) through immorality: ‘’sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.” The 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. For today, millions of Americans are an immoral, narcissistic people addicted to instant gratification; an infantilized people whose ongoing mind-conditioning comes by way of warped, pornographic, propaganda-spewing media and entertainment. And while Americans have been sleeping, our universities and schools have become transmission belts for the proselytizing of socialism, political correctness, open-borders, New Age pantheism, sexual confusion and androgyny, one world universalism, 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 worldview die, the American mind shuts down in tandem, thereby allowing the icecap of a new ‘green’ totalitarianism to relentlessly advance across our nation, snuffing out the light of liberty and all things good. Under its oppressive weight, America is crushed downward into a dark abyss of pagan superstition, where at the urging of the Left’s demonic mendacity, 2+2 becomes 5, being bad is cool, but doing evil is much more gratifying.

Our 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 self-determination (impulse-control) 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, and giving in to base impulses and passions on the other hand, leads to lack of impulse-control (determinism) and the downward spiraling consequences of 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 apathetic, drug-using, infantilized, violence-prone, obscenity-spewing, sex-obsessed people, and the name Jesus Christ is for many of these---and particularly for the Left’s ‘self-anointed’---- 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)

As we watch and wait in trepidation, wondering if our fellow Americans will be so foolish as to elect yet another seductive, charismatic Messiah similar to Obama—the most destructive Leftist ever—-we need to realize that our greatest enemy is often ourselves. For when we allow ourselves 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---will be the downfall of our individual liberties, self-government, and a free America.

The Dark God of Gnostic Progressive Spirituality

We are at the dawn of a new consciousness, a radically fresh approach to our life…Perhaps the best name for this new segment of historical experience is the Interspiritual Age.” Wayne Teasdale, “The Mystic Heart”

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

The Gnostic system of inverse exegesis 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)

Western and American culture has been hijacked by an evolutionary spiritual ideology that Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, calls neo-Gnostic Paganism. In the foreword to the book ‘On Global Wizardry,’ John Frame describes it as an historical and worldwide movement of enormous, cultural power that for centuries has sought to dominate our world. (p. 10)

Darwin’s idea is taken by modern Gnostics as final proof that the universe is governed, not by the divine will of Jehovah Who created humans out of dust, 

“…but by a virtually divine force Darwin called natural selection.  Having produced human consciousness, evolution may now…be brought directly under the control of its own product, Humanity, the accomplishment of natural selection…”  (James Herrick, p. 150)

Grounded in an inverse evolutionary cosmogony Progressive Spirituality is vehemently anti-Revealed Word of God, the Genesis creation account ex nihilo which speaks of a fall by man from a good creation, and Jesus Christ God Incarnate, the Way, the Truth, and the Life who, in the minds of hostile progressive Gnostics, intolerantly declared that “No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)   

 Progressive Spirituality holds that each world religion of nature shares a single universal truth---that the divine energy (i.e., the Force, evolution, prana, chi) or consciousness (i.e., Solar Logos, Mind of the Universe) has manifested itself through many deities in different places and at different times.  Thus no one deity can express the totality of the divine energy or consciousness.  This is polytheism.  

Progressive Spirituality has eleven other essential beliefs:

1. The divine energy or consciousness is present everywhere within nature and man and is therefore the divine essence or spark in the minds of humans.  This means that every person is a potential god because they are aspects of the evolving divine consciousness.  This is idolatry.

2.  The divine energy is represented by both female and male energies.  These two major aspects of the divine are the goddess and god, although the divine, being beyond limitations of gender, is androgynous (transgender).

3. Animism: nature is infused with evolving divine spirit, consciousness, or life force and is thus alive with divine energy or soul, meaning Gaia (earth) is alive.

4. Magic and/or occult science: the principle instrument of initiates, adepts, and god-men employed to acquire hidden knowledge (gnosis).

5. Spiritual evolution: evolutionary progress over time resulting in apotheosis.

6.  Subjectivism: there is no objective truth and reality; whatever one wishes to be true and real is subjectively true and real for that person. (1)

7. History as a record of events in space and time has no particular significance.

8. Religious pluralism rooted in mystical experience.  This means that the only universal religious experience is the mystical experience. 

9.  Forecasting a pending, and for them a highly desirable natural selection of mankind in which progressive practitioners of Gnostic Spirituality enter the New Age millennium and the reactionaries face extinction. For the Apostles of progressive Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution.  (False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, Lee Penn, p. 7)

10: Socialism as the new evangelism.

11. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer, angel of evolution, and giver of wisdom (gnosis)

Progressive Spirituality is a syncretic stew consisting of elements of Mystery Religion Babylon, occult Kabbalah, Egyptian Hermetic magic, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnostic paganism, Shamanism, Astrology, African pagan spirituality, Chinese spirituality, the spirituality of Quantum Mechanics, Deep Ecology and global change, Hinduism, Buddhism, Luciferian Theosophy, Wicca, evolutionary Christianity and new contemplative (meditation) techniques and other occult ways of contacting the spirit realm. (2)   Uniting all of these movements is a determined commitment to evolution, magic science, subjectivism and tolerance that paves the way for a one world religion. John Frame comments:

"These movements are parallel to one another, even congruent.  So they form a single movement in effect.  They work together, drawing on one another for support and inspiration, affirming one another, while they unite in opposing biblical Christianity. The resulting movement is, then, a work of Satan, seeking to confront Christianity head-on.”  (p. 10)

In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called the New Age or Progressive Spirituality Bible, Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) concurs and enthusiastically reports that a great, shuddering irrevocable shift in consciousness is overtaking Westerners,

"It is a new mind, a turnabout in consciousness in critical numbers of individuals, a network powerful enough to bring about radical change in our culture.   This network....has alreadyenlisted the minds, hearts and resources of some of our most advanced thinkers, including Nobel laureate scientists, philosophers, statesmen, celebrities....who are working to create a different kind of society...The technologies for expanding and transforming personal consciousness, once the secret of an elite, are now generating massive change in every cultural institution---medicine, politics, business, education, religion and the family."   (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 34)

Ferguson lists a number of consciousness altering techniques:

".....Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Focusing, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control..."  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Dave Hunt, Thomas McMahon, p. 43)

The altered state of consciousness in which a man supposedly enters into communion with the "Mind of the Universe" with the help of spirit guides is called "opening of the senses" in Scripture:

"Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way with his drawn sword in his hand."  (Numbers 22:31, also see 2 Kings 6:17; Luke 24:16-31)

Hypnotic trance-states are linked to ancient pagan religious practices and eastern mystical experiences that are essential to such practices as out-of-body experiences, astral projection, and Yoga. Historically, hypnosis has been an integral part of world pagan religious practices and pantheist systems stretching back to the mother of all such systems: Babylon.  

In ’Recognitions’ church father Clement records an evil deed committed by the Gnostic pagan magician Simon (Acts 8: 9-24) that bears a striking resemblance to the effects of modern altered state of consciousness techniques resulting in out-of-body-experiences.   Clement reports that Simon committed murder by inducing a child to experience an out of body situation.  By way of mesmerizing, abominable incantations,

"...he separated the soul of a child from its own body that it might become his assistant for the production of whatever apparition he might require.  And he drew a likeness of the boy, and keeps it set up in the inner chamber where he sleeps, affirming that he...formed him of air by transformations such as the gods cause..." (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, p. 181)

In other words, by way of a consciousness altering technique, Simon drew out the spirit of the boy,

"...and then omitted to recall it, so that the spirit had finally separated from the body; and that he had done this for the purpose of procuring a (spirit) familiar....Simon....denied the murder of the boy by asserting that he had merely resolved a spirit-form which he had himself produced." (Earth's Earliest Ages, p. 182)

During trance states demons can interfere with and even possess the passive or empty mind, making occult meditation techniques open doorways into the realm of evil spirits and dangerous demonic deceptions.

Similarly, hallucinogenic drugs also assist users to experience an altered state of consciousness. There are as well certain types of music, such as electronic trance and heavy metal that enhance and in many cases produce in the mind and spirit of the listener an altered state, hence spiritual transformation. In secularized Westerners and unwary Christians alike, altered states eventually end in an altered world view.

As it was in the days of Noah

As Ferguson admits, many of the hypnotic-technologies being taught over and across our culture were once the private domain of ancient magicians and sorcerers.   In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many Progressive Spirituality historians claim their traditions originated in pre-flood Atlantis (during the time of Noah) and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon and surrounding plains of Shinar, 

"...and from there disseminated throughout the earth, including Taoist doctrines of China, Mayan-Aztec teachings of Mexico and Central/South America; Great Spirit teachings of the American Indians, Hindu/Buddhist teachings of Asia, etc." (ibid, pp. 250-251) 

Church Father Clement concurs.  In the antediluvian world, fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man:

After the flood Ham the son of Noah unhappily 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)

The Tower of Babel was Babylon's founding edifice and spiritual center, said Brooks Alexander, research director for Spiritual Counterfeits Project.  Brooks describes the Tower as an astral temple or gate-way into the dimension of spirits and the Divine Energy.  It therefore represented the structure of the evolving universe of energy and matter:

"As the 'cosmic mountain' it tied heaven and earth together.  It was the all-inclusive image of the totality of the universe." (The Big Lie, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, 2005, Tal Brooke, p. 11)

The magical meaning of the Tower is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the universe or macrocosm's correlation with the microcosm, "as above, so below" symbolized by the Ouroboros – the serpent-powered cosmic tree of life represented by a snake biting its tail.  "Below" corresponds to earth, initiate (aspiring god man), and Tower, and 'above' to a number of different astral planes and sub-planes comprising the void--- the locale of gods and demons, 

" the region inhabited by spirits of the air and other elements, and the various heavens and hells with their angelic and demonic hosts....With the help of ritual procedures, trained persons believe that they can 'rise on the planes,' and experience these regions in full awareness." ("Beyond the Body: The Human Double and the Astral Planes, Benjamin Walker, 1974, pp. 117-8)

From the time of Nimrod to our own, the serpent-energized Ouroboros with its astral planes and sub-planes has been well-known around the world in its' many esoteric (occult secret) traditions.

Brooks adds that in the ritual act of ascending the astral altar,

"…. the priests acted out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos.  The Babylonian monarch was the focus of the occult power channeled through the activities of the priesthood.  He was regarded as a divine being, a god-man."  (ibid, The Big Lie, p. 10)    

With the help of spirit guides (fallen angels and demons), psycho-technologies and other occult rituals, initiates believed they could spiritually progress or evolve up the astral planes to visit the realm of the gods and become the mouth-pieces for the gods and goddesses.  

According to occult lore, at the final level of initiation spirit entities (demons) fully possess the body of the monarch to replace his spirit. This means that the spirit of the monarch is no longer in residence as another spirit totally possesses and animates the monarch's body.  This is why the monarch thereafter was regarded as a divine being, a god-man.

Upon possession of the monarch's body, the spirit exudes a powerful mesmerizing influence that draws much of the community into its sphere of influence and domination resulting in communal possession.  Possession takes two forms, communal and individual.  Communal or collective possession is,

"...strongly institutionalized, and ritualistically induced, but peripheral possession is more normally individual and spontaneous." (Demonic Possession: A Medical, Historical, Anthropological, and Theological Symposium, John Warwick Montgomery (ed.), Bethany, 1976)

Possession and Other Dangers of Mind-Altering Techniques

According to a 1987 New York Times article, psychologists who studied mind-altering techniques said that while participants are in this altered state group-leaders are able to implant new ideas and alter thinking processes, raising fears of mind control.  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt, McMahon)

This charge is so grave and frightening that former University of Wisconsin psychology faculty member Edwin Morse warns that graduates of new Spirituality (New Age) courses being required for employees of many businesses are often "psychologically scarred."  Now in private practice and specializing in helping such people, Dr. Morse declares:

"These (mind-altering) groups are using hypnotic procedures and people are not being told about it." (ibid, America: the Sorcerers New Apprentice, p. 42)

Even school children are being taught the ancient art of centering, a psycho-technique that opens up their minds to the influence of demons.  In his book, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom," Allen Quist warns:

"New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation's public schools." A model curriculum has been developed that "is clearly centered on pantheism." "Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology. The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination). It is only Christianity that these organizations object to." (p. 51) 

Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, has also been following the explosive growth of Gnostic Progressive Spirituality. In a work entitled, "Teachers, Preachers and Greens: The Unholy Alliance to Transform America," DeWeese reveals the existence of a well-funded yet covert effort to alter the consciousness of American society through an aggressive assault on schools and churches.  He reveals that the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City is one of the initiating centers of the assault and the home to the enormously influential occult spiritual Gaia Institute and Temple of Understanding — a politically influential U.N. Non-Governmental Organization. (federalobserver.com)

So-called 'extraterrestrials' are also at work.   In "Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection," Gary Bates reports that the abduction phenomenon is occurring all over the world, including Third World countries.   After considerable research, Bates connects psycho-techniques utilized by ‘ETs” to hypnosis.  So-called 'aliens' use hypnotic methods to enter into the subconscious mind to plant subliminal messages and alter thought processes to embrace the concept of naturalistic evolution which negates the Genesis account. (Bates, p. 262)

World-renowned UFOlogist and archaeologist Dr. Clifford Wilson is but one of many researchers who have pointed out how an entity calling itself "Ashtar" keeps popping up in UFO accounts.   Along with Semjase (Samlazaz, Semjaza), who has been posing as a modern space-brother, Ashtar keeps appearing in UFO literature as well as ancient texts.  John Keel, one of the world's most published and highly respected UFOlogists also noted this.  Highlighting the element of deception he wrote:

"Thousands of mediums, psychics, and UFO contactees have been receiving mountains of messages from "Ashtar" in recent years.... Ashtar is not a new arrival.    Variations of this name, such as Astaroth, Asher, Asharoth, etc. appear in demonological literature throughout history, both in the Orient and Occident.   Mr. Ashtar had been around a very long time, posing as assorted gods and demons and now, in the modern phase, as another glorious spaceman."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 290)

In ancient Babylon, Ashtoreth (Inanna, Ashtar, Ishtar of the Acadians, Istar, Semiramis, Milcom, Cybele, Astarte, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite; 1 Kings 11:5, 33; 2 Kings 23:13) was the androgynous consort of Anu, the supreme sky god.  

According to Dr. Peter Jones, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their devotion to Istar,

“... who herself had ‘transformed their masculinity into femininity.'”  (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Jones, truthxchange)    

Who are Semjaza and Astar/Ishtar?

According to ANE Scholar Dr. Michael Heiser, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University, Semjaza, the androgynous Ashtar and all other pagan gods 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)

Globalized Gnostic Progressive Spirituality

The Book of Genesis informs us that before the great flood the antediluvian world was in a frenzy of wickedness, no doubt aided and abetted by the Watchers.   God's wrath fell upon that world while a remnant was preserved in the ark.   But scarcely had the waters receded when Ham rediscovered and resurrected the teachings of the Watchers from the antediluvian world.  Utilizing these teachings, Nimrod turned the people away from the worship of God and revived the necessary elements of Mystery Religion Atlantis to establish his own post-flood version. 

While Mystery Religion Babylon is the post-flood root of all mystery religions, in its' final version, communal and individual possession will become a global phenomenon as untold millions of people ritualistically act out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos:

".....I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe. Thereby, too, my deepest 'pantheist' aspirations. It was especially the image of God which Teilhard saw in need of urgent redefinition. Modern man has not yet found the God he can adore, A God commensurate to the newly discovered dimensions of the universe." (Towards a New Mysticism, Teilhard de Chardin and Eastern Religions, Ursula King, p. 172

Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the ‘divine,’ it’s transcendence into ever higher forms of life.  Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine.  This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity.  Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...” (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, 1923-2010, U.N. Assistant Secretary General known as the philosopher of the U.N. and father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)

The Dark God of Progressive Spirituality

Progressive spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through mediums such as Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Robert Muller, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Of these it is Blavatsky who reveals the identity of the dark god.   

Blavatsky founded the Theosophical Society to promote occult doctrine, religious philosophy and wisdom tradition.  Theosophy holds that all nature religions are attempts by the Occult Brotherhood (fallen angels) to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that eachnature religion therefore has a portion of the truth.  These teachings, which Blavatsky called ‘The Ageless Wisdom,’ had previously only been available to Secret Societies from the time of Babylon and Atlantis, but she obtained them from the Brotherhood during her travels to Egypt and India. 

In her book, ‘The Secret Doctrine,’ Blavatsky reveals the name of the dark god:

"Satan and his rebellious host will thus prove to have become the direct Saviours and Creators of divine man . . . It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God.  Satan (or Lucifer) represents the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, this ever-living symbol of self-sacrifice for the intellectual independence of humanity.”   

In volume II of “The Secret Doctrine” she said:

"….it is but natural…to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: “in the day ye eat thereof, ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil” – can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour….”  

  “And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” (brimstone was a theological improvement), and Lucifer, or “Light Bearer,” is in us: It is our Mind – our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism. Without this principle… we would be surely no better than animals” (Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243)

In this light it becomes clear why leading Gnostic initiates and adepts speak of the necessity of the Luciferian initiation for all who wish to enter the coming utopian millennium.

Revelation reports that at some point the whole world will become drunk on the wine of Babylon, its' deluded celebrants convinced of their own deity when in reality they've received the mark of Satan.   

The clearest answer to the apocalyptic atmosphere of our time is found in the Bible.  We are living in the Last Days.  History is winding down and Satan is mobilizing his forces for a final all-out assault--- which we are already experiencing (1 Tim. 4:1 and 2; Tim. 3:1-4) The demonic realm is brazenly interacting with our own realm, and it is in this light that we can understand the growing epidemic of occultism, imbecility, pathological lying, violence, hatred, death-wishing, and other evils overtaking our society.

We are living in the days of a demonic nature, said Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987).  For over fifty years Dr. Koch's name has been synonymous with authoritative and biblical insights and help for all who desire to understand or escape from the mesmerizing influence of the occult and demonic world.  According to Koch, civilization is marching toward its own destruction and if we fail therefore to take our stand at the foot of the cross,

"... fail to build our house upon the Rock, (we will) be swept away by the turmoil of the End-times."  (Demonology Past and Present, Koch, p. 37)

2. Demonic Darkness: America’s Invisible Wave of Evil

Why Are Americans Voting for a Mouthy, Junk-Yard Dog Like Trump?

In "Donald Trump is Shocking, Vulgar, and Right,"  Tucker Carlson asks his readers, "when was the last time you stopped yourself from saying something you believed to be true for fear of being punished or criticized for saying it?"  If you live in America, it probably hasn’t been long:

"That’s not just a talking point about political correctness. It’s the central problem with our national conversation, the main reason our debates are so stilted and useless. You can’t fix a problem if you don’t have the words to describe it. You can’t even think about it clearly."   ("Donald Trump is Shocking, Vulgar, and Right,“ politico.com)

After more than fifty years of having it pounded into our heads by those who love darkness, lies and evil that unchanging truth and evil do not exist, the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos leave many if not most Americans without the right words to express their shock and revulsion.  Evil however, is an appropriate descriptor.  

Planned Parenthood butchers either skillfully crush unborn living babies in order to behead and cannibalize them for their body parts or as we now learn, kill them upon birth for the same barbaric purposes.  This is evil rationalized and justified by wicked liars as "scientific research" a "woman's choice" and "family planning."    Similarly, much of what passes today for 'free speech' is lies, shameless bragging, ingratitude, hate, vulgarity, contempt, resentment, envy , malice and death-wishing rationalized and justified by morally unfettered barbarians as 'free speech.' 

According to Carlson, this depressing state of affairs made Trump’s political career, and, "my dear fellow Republicans, he's all your fault:"

" In a country where almost everyone in public life lies reflexively, it’s thrilling to hear someone say what he really thinks, even if you believe he’s wrong. It’s especially exciting when you suspect he’s right, " despite that Christians largely know that Trumps' brand of Christianity is "a ludicrous imitation of a faithful Christian, the least holy roller ever."

So why are decent, law-abiding Americans and faithful Christians overwhelmingly supporting a fiery, mouthy, junk-yard dog like Trump? Though there is no one-size-fits-all answer, for many supporters, particularly those who are informed, it is obvious that those who love the dark rather than the Light are parasitic destroyers fast-tracking America into hell, thus in desperation they see in Trump someone who might save our nation from some or all of the following pathologies:

1.Growing secularization (subjectivist paganism) proceeding hand in hand with the ‘evolutionising’ of the culture

2. A rise in militant—atheism and a growing intolerance of the Bible’s account of Creation, the two sexes, God ordained marriage, the Fall, the Flood, immutable truth, moral absolutes, Christian holidays, Ten Commandment monuments, cemetery crosses, private property, our right to defend ourselves from the evil intentioned, the founders and even the Constitution

3.  Widespread acceptance of sodomy, lesbianism, transgender

4. Culture wide embrace of a man-centered morality (subjectivism/political correctness) that is in opposition to Christianity and rationalizes the persecution, imprisonment, and impoverishment of Christians

5. With the disappearance of Biblical ethics like the sanctity of human life we witness the ongoing consequences relating to the dehumanization of humans and subsequent cheapening of human life in abortion, the sexualization and perversion of children, embryonic stem cell research and various forms of euthanasia.

All of this unfolding evil leads some evangelicals such as Phyllis Schlafly and mega-church pastor Robert Jeffress  to endorse Trump because they believe he is Americas' last best hope.  Others see in him a modern Cyrus, raised up by God to restore our nation.  In summation, Carlson believes they’re looking for,

 "a bodyguard, someone to shield them from mounting (and real) threats to their freedom of speech and worship. Trump fits that role nicely, better in fact than many church-going Republicans. For eight years, there was a born-again in the White House. How’d that work out for Christians, here and in Iraq?"

Though Obama claims to be Christian, his liberal (apostate) brand does not qualify as the real thing.   Moreover, liberal 'Christianity' and other such man-and-world centered permutations are symptoms of the much larger apostasy and spiritual disease afflicting and killing our society, and by extension, why America increasingly resembles the spiritual vacuum that is the now-dead Christendom.   Similar to that dead zone, America is a roiling sea of darkness dotted here and there by very small islands of Light.  No man--no not Trump either--- can make great an apostatizing, spiritually diseased and dying society in which a majority of its citizens are slaves to appetites.  Without a Ninevah-style repentance and turning back to the Lord, it seems more likely that Trump will prove to be another tin-pot dictator rather than a Cyrus.    Only time will tell.

The Perverse Wills of Egocentric Westerners

G.K. Chesterton once said that Westerners are living in increasingly abnormal times. What is abnormal about our age, you might ask?

Abnormal is gangs of brutal Muslim men evilly groping and raping Western European females while stupefied European leaders either pretend not to notice or blame European women.  Abnormal is the perverse hatred, loathing, and death-wishing of Western Progressives for the civilization that nurtures, enriches, and protects them.  Abnormal is the elevation of sodomy, pederasty, bestiality, euthanasia, and abortion to the highest pinnacle of social good. Abnormal is the chastising of the faithful by Pope Francis for not embracing anti-Biblical, anti-creation evolution.  It's also pastor Rob Bell claiming to be reinventing Christianity as a neo-pagan Eastern spirituality.   Abnormal are thousands of Catholic nuns and some male priests who have become witches and 'gay' druids and shaman.  Abnormal is evangelical leader Leonard Sweet using quantum physics to 'scientifically' prove that Jehovah is 'in' everything (pantheism). And finally, it is President Obama using our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life, the Alpha and Omega, God Himself to justify the pagan ideal, androgyny and/or gender-neutrality:

"[W]hen we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is not only Christ sacrificing Himself on our behalf, but it's also the golden rule -- treat others the way you'd want to be treated." (Using Christian faith to justify 'LGBT Pride Month', Charlie Butts, OneNews Now)

These few examples of our increasingly abnormal times exemplify the plunge of the post-Christian West and America into the abyss because vast numbers of Westerners and American subjectivists (nihilists) and increasing numbers of Christians who are practical atheists no longer see the True Light.  Their eyes no longer look up toward the true God but down, to egocentric 'self' and the lower things of this world. They have lost their reason, and said early Church Father Athanasius, they have,

 

" plunged into the lusts and imaginations of carnal things because they have forgotten the knowledge and glory" of the transcendent God. 

The vice occluded conscience of all who have either outright denied or forgotten the transcendent God has caused them to fall into varying degrees of moral imbecility and irrationality, and with pride inflated, they have wittingly or unwittingly made gods of themselves and of evolution, science, technology, concepts, theories, ideologies, lust, and other disordered passions. Thus today, everything and everyone--even Jesus Christ and Christianity-- exist to gratify desires, caprices, whims and needs of individuals who have made gods of themselves.

All sin begins with pride (self-love) said Augustine. Pride is perverse. It has no regard for the Higher Things of Jehovah--life, unchanging truth, moral absolutes, order, direction, respect, justice, goodness, gratitude, righteousness, and normalcy. Its' perversity can be seen in what it constantly chooses---death, lies, pretense, contempt, scorn, ridicule, deception, rebellion, anarchy, misdirection, angry outbursts, disorder, disrespect, injustice, ingratitude, self-righteousness, and everything abnormal.

The eighteenth-century apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky described the perverse will of man as the most nihilistic of all spiritual forces, for like the mind, the will is of man's spirit. Hence the nihilistic will originates and resides in the darkened soul rather than the soul filled with the Light of Truth and Goodness.

The most infamous prophet of nihilism is the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. Calling himself the antichrist, Nietzsche announced the death of the supernatural Triune God, immutable truth, moral law and Christendom.    He added that even now, during his lifetime that is, this poisonous darkness is spreading over and across Christian-based European civilization and will eventually engulf all of the West. 

 Only in this light can we understand and make sense of the West's growing darkness.  Its abnormal, strangely twisted, increasingly perverse atmosphere is the "death of God" made tangible, and it is Nietzsche who describes our Godless, meaningless, purposeless, disordered, ugly, atonal, brutal, upside-down climate of nothingness:

"We have killed him (God), you and I! ...But how have we done it? How were we able to drink up the sea? Who gave us the sponge to wipe away the whole horizon? What did we do when we loosened this earth from its sun? Whither does it now move? Whither do we move? ...Do we not dash on unceasingly? Backwards, sideways, forwards, in all directions? Is there still an above and below? Do we not stray...through infinite nothingness? Does not empty space breathe upon us? ...Does not night come on continually, darker and darker?" (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 108)

In other words, demonically destructive spiritual energy working through the perverse wills of egocentric Westerners and Americans has perversely wiped away reality issuing in theaters of the abnormal and absurd.

Nihilism also underlies all permutations of the emerging 'new' pagan spirituality, whether Evolutionary Christianity, Westernized Hinduism, Gnosticism, Mythology, New Age, Theosophy, Scientology, Jungian Depth Psychology, Interfaith, Trans-humanism, Wicca, Goddess worship, and the spiritual 'gay' agenda, for there is no form of the new spirituality that is not a form of pagan naturalism. All are equally without the true supernatural God, therefore not one of them has a source for life, consciousness, and soul, hence all are merely different expressions of nothingness. This too is abnormal, wholly perverse, and utterly suicidal.

In our theater of the absurd there is no up or down, male or female, right or wrong, true or false, normal or abnormal because the supernatural living God is dead in the hearts of vast numbers of Westerners and Americans. Thus from W. Europe to America, our once-Christian civilization drifts aimlessly in infinite nothingness spilling into the abyss as the depraved wills of egocentric men and women perversely dissolve everythinggood, true, right, normal and just.

New Age Spirituality, Carl Jung, Abraxas, and Baphomet

It is no exaggeration to say that the highly respected psychologist, Dr. Carl Jung, is the Father of Neo-Gnosticism and the New Age movement, which is why Dr. Jeffrey Satinover comments that, 

"One of the most powerful modern forms of Gnosticism is without question Jungian psychology, both within or without the Church". (Satinover, The Empty Self, p. 27)   

 This being the case and because of his great influence in propagating gnostic philosophy and morals in churches and synagogues,  

"...Jung deserves a closer look.  The moral relativism that released upon us the sexual revolution is rooted in an outlook of which (Jung) is the most brilliant contemporary expositor." Jung "blended psychological reductionism with gnostic spirituality to produce a modern variant of mystical, pagan polytheism in which the multiple ‘images of the instincts’ (his ‘archetypes’) are worshipped as gods." (Satinover, Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth, p. 238)   

 Though many Christians mistakenly embrace Carl Jung the truth is that he rejected Jesus Christ in favor of the gnostic god Abraxas. Like all Gnostic magicians ancient and modern, Jung sought to combine good with evil and male with female, thus for Jung it was regrettable that Christ in his goodness and maleness lacked a shadowy feminized side, and God the Father, who is the Light, lacked darkness. 

In his 1916 book, "The Seven Sermons to the Dead," the heavily demonized Jung, whose familiar spirit Philemon appeared to him as an old man with the horns of a bull and the wings of a fisher, called Abraxas a god higher than the Christian God  that combines all opposites into one Being. He said that Abraxas is a polymorphous world spirit, a coiled knot of winged serpents which permeates the very fabric of existence.  

 Two primary characteristics of ancient and modern pagan Gnostic ideology revolve around two ideas.  The first is that this world is a horrible mistake.  The world and our bodies are places of suffering and evil that should never have existed.  The second is that the Creator God of Scripture is the malevolent being responsible for both this evil world and our evil bodies while the winged serpent Satan is the enlightener and liberator of man. 

 Abraxas comes from ancient Egypt and Greece and is associated with the earliest beginnings of Gnosticism, which according to the Jewish Encyclopedia originated in ancient Chaldea with the Jews during their Babylonian exile.  It was then that certain Jews invented the mystical Babylonian Kabbalah which they modeled on the Babylonian Mystery Religion, the mother of all mystery religions throughout the history of the world.   According to modern occult Mason Albert Pike, 

"The Kabbalah is the key to the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists." (Morals and Dogma, p. 626) 

 The Gnostic Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit teaches that Abraxas is an Aeon dwelling with other Aeons of the Pleroma.   Pleroma generally refers to the totality of divine powers contained within and emanating (evolving) as energies from the Realm of Light (Ein Sof of the Kabbalah).   

 In  "The Dictionary of Mind and Spirit" (1991), we learn that for the second-century Alexandrian Gnostic Basilides, Abraxas was the Supreme Being or Realm of Light from which emanated the following energies: Mind, Understanding, Wisdom, Power and a whole succession of powers, principalities and Aeons.  Basilides believed there were 365 Aeons, all of them personifications of the energies emanating from the Supreme Being.  The first of these Aeons was Christ, or Nous.    

 According to ancient Gnostic texts, Abraxas is the astral serpent (Satan) on the tree who gives the illumination of both good and evil to Adam and Eve whose eyes were then opened. The powerful occult symbol, the Oroboros (snake biting its' tail), signifies Abraxas, the king worm who rules this world. Abraxas is the maker of good and evil rolled into one persona described by the  Gnostic Basilides as "the greatest God" (De vir. ill. 21), "the highest God" (Dial. adv. Lucif. 23), "the Almighty God" (Comm. in Amos iii. 9), and "the Lord the Creator" (Comm. in Nah. i. 11). 

In modern Gnostic accounts such as the popular movie "The Matrix," Abraxas is the Cosmic Mind, a mysterious Divine One Substance, an "immeasurable light which is pure, holy and immaculate." (Apocryphon of John)  On the other hand, the Holy Trinity is represented by the evil Machine Overlords.  (Wake up! Gnosticism and Buddhism in The Matrix, Frances Flannery-Daily and Rachel Wagner, Journal of Religion and Film) 

 Gnostic accounts generally demote the Holy Trinity to one of the lesser Aeons and portray Him as an evil, malformed, ignorant deity sometimes called Yaldabaoth who mistakenly believes he is the only god.  Although traditions vary, Yaldabaoth is said to have breathed the divine spark of his mother Sophia (another Aeon)  into the human being (Apoc. of John) resulting in the human dilemma: man is not fallen and in need of a Savior but rather a divine spark trapped by Yaldabaoth in an evil material body in a false world of matter. The astral Pleroma is his true home but he is in exile. 

Rather than Yaldabaoth, modern Gnostic Transhumanists  such as Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association together with like-minded physicists suggest that the Holy Trinity is an evil alien supercomputer. In this account, the world we live in is a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings.  This is the "scientific" theory put forward by Bostrom and a number of physicists whose Gnostic account of the evil alien supercomputer is reminiscent of entities depicted in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey: 

 "It is perhaps a ripe coincidence, that the Coptic word for simulation found in Gnostic texts is hal, recalling HAL the rebellious computer in Kubrick's 2001." (3) 

 In Bostroms account, the Holy Trinity is the expression of an ego-driven consciousness, the evil Lord Archon –  a counterfeit spirit (Apoc. John III, 36:17) who has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent human beings from remembering that they are divine spirits whose real home is the Gnostic Pleroma. 

 Celebrated by the Satanic Temple as well as by Masons and Wiccans, the devilish goat-headed Baphomet, known as the phallic god Pan, the ancient hermaphrodite god of nature, is another representation of the Gnostic Abraxas. As Pan, the goat-headed deity is the first principle or essence of nature while in astrology, 

 "...Pan...is also equated with Satan and life...in its base aspects." (J.E. Cirlot, A Dictionary of Symbols, 1971) 

 In a Presentation at Norwood Lodge No. 90 in 1991, Master Mason Eugene Plawiuk revealed the Chaldean pedigree of Baphomet and its close connection to astrology's elemental spirits in 'Liber Capricornus: the Symbolism of the Goat.' Plawiuk explains that the goat is known to all of us through, 

 "....the ancient science of Astrology first developed by the Chaldeans, or as they are commonly known; Babylonians. The Goat symbolizes male fertility (and is represented by) the astrological sign of Capricorn...In fact the...Babylonians who gave us this symbol of Capricorn and the science of Astrology were the first Temple Builders, and the goat for them symbolized the essence of the Temple or Lodge...According to a research monograph on the Dionysian Artificers and Early Masonry edited by Manly P. Hall, the symbolism of the goat relates to the prechristian God Pan, Dionysius. The Goat-God was accepted by the later Greek Mystery Schools as the symbol of the Temple Builders." (Presentation at Norwood Lodge No. 90, A.F. &A.M.G.R.A., Sept. 3, 1991, Masonic World) 

 Today's New Age or what Dr. Peter Jones describes as neo-Gnostic pagan spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Neale Donald Walsh, and many other contemporary mediums (including Carl Jung) some of them occupyingpositions at the UN.  The Lord however, strongly condemns all forms of Spiritism: 

"anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord."   Deuteronomy 18: 10-12

Satan is the great deceiver (Rev. 12:9). He uses his servants of deception to manipulate, confuse, and mislead (Ephesians 4:14), and one of his most important servants, the evangelical apostate Alice Bailey (1880-1949) is a major architect of today's rapidly spreading, morally relative, transgender embracing serpent-powered neo-Gnostic New Age movement, a spiritual juggernaut effecting a counter-conversion of consciousness that closes the soul to Jesus Christ while opening it to powers of darkness. 

According to Bailey's contemporary apostles, a master 'Plan' telepathically revealed to Bailey for the coming New Age millennium can be traced back to the fall of Lucifer and his angels from heaven. Bailey's demon-master, the Tibetan, described the revolt of the angels against the Holy God as part of the "divine plan of evolution," by which angels,  

"descended from their sinless and free state of existence in order to develop full divine awareness on earth." (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 224) 

In this total reversal and inversion of the Revealed Word of God, the Fall of man was really an evolutionary ascent to liberating knowledge by which man's eyes were opened to good (Satan) and evil (the Holy God). Thus Helena Blavatsky, another important servant of Satan and architect of New Age spirituality concluded that it is but natural to view Satan, the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, 

"... the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it was he who was the 'Harbinger of Light,' bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah...Indeed, (mankind) was taught wisdom and the hidden knowledge by the 'Fallen Angel." (ibid, pp. 224-225) 

 As man's benefactor, Lucifer continues to assist man's evolution. In the words of the apostate evangelical, now New Age theologian David Spangler, a disciple of both Blavatsky and Bailey, Lucifer is 'the angel of man's evolution' and all who seek entry to the NWO must submit to the Luciferian initiation. 

 Satan's servants are out in the open today. They have successfully initiated a devastating assault upon the whole body of the Christian church and by extension, upon Western and American society in ways that to previous generations would have seemed unthinkable. 

 Therefore, "Put you on the armor of God that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil." Ephesians 6:11   and remember that ""Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." (1 John 4:4)

Defining Features of Progressive Communism, the Enemy Within

Though Conservatives and Christian Conservatives in particular are demonized as enemies of progress, the real source of the cancer that's been eating away our Constitutional Republic for over sixty years are modern communists camouflaged as progressives dedicated to the destruction of this country.  In “The Threat We Face: what is the nature of the adversary we are up against?” David Horowitz argues that the president, his chief operative Valerie Jarrett and his chief political strategist David Axelrod all came out of the same Communist left and the same radical new left as he did,

“….and all have remained heart and soul a part of it. As someone who turned his back on that destructive movement, I can say with confidence that they have not. If a person belongs to an organization or is the supporter of an idea that they come to see as destructive or evil, the first thing they will want to do when they leave is to warn others against it, to warn them of the dangers it represents. If a person does not do this – that tells me that he or she hasn’t left the destructive movement or abandoned the pernicious idea but has just put another face on them. Instead of calling themselves communists or socialists they call themselves liberals and progressives. This camouflage is very old. I never once heard my parents and their party friends refer to themselves as Communists. They were progressives – and registered Democrats.” (frontpagemag.com, October 9, 2013

Horowitz outlines four defining features of the left:

1. Alienation from country:

If you ask progressives about their patriotic feeling, they will tell you that they don’t think of themselves first as Americans but as “citizens of the world.”

2. Corruption: the key to understanding the left is its instinctive, practiced, and indispensable dishonesty.

3. Contempt for and rejection of the past is the third feature that defines progressive politics.  Progressives contemptuously disregard the past, which is real, and focus exclusively on an imaginary evolutionary ascension or future: 

To understand why this is important, think of progressives as a species of religious fundamentalists planning a redemption. Like fundamentalists they look at the world as fallen – a place corrupted by racism, sexism and class division. But the truly religious understand that we are the source of corruption and that redemption is only possible through the work of a Divinity. In contrast, progressives see themselves as the redeemers, which is why they are so dangerous. Because they regard those who oppose them as the eternally damned. Progressives are on a mission to create the kingdom of heaven on earth by redistributing income and using the state to enforce politically correct attitudes and practices in everyone’s life. They want to control what you do, and who you are, and even what you eat. For your own good, of course.”

4. Since Progressives see themselves as saving the world – or “saving the planet” as they would prefer — they regard politics as a religious war:

This explains why they are so rude and nasty when you disagree with them or resist their panaceas (and of course if they had the power, the punishments would be more severe); that is why the politics of personal destruction is their favorite variety, why they are verbal assassins and go directly for the jugular, and why they think nothing of destroying the reputations of their opponents and burying them permanently. And that is why they can perform their character assassinations without regrets – or did I miss Obama’s apology to Romney for accusing him of killing a woman with cancer during the campaign? Why apologize when you did it for the good of a world transforming cause?”

Paul Hollander's book "Political Pilgrims: Western Intellectuals in Search of the Good Society" recounts what depraved Leftist progressive intellectuals and apostate priests did for many decades on behalf of saving the planet during the Soviet era. To quote one Amazon reviewer:

"Political Pilgrims is the amazing story of how Western intellectuals embraced Marxist tyrants at the very moment their colleagues were rotting in prison cells, and the common people everyone claimed to be concerned for, were starving. The book relates how cultural and religious leaders from the West, including familiar names, visited the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and other communist countries, and told the most appalling lies."

The blood of millions of men, women, and children stains the hands of progressive leaders from the West who covered up the most monstrous evils with appalling lies, revised history, mind-control techniques and propaganda:

"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)

In “The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture,” David Kupelian chronicles the decline and fall of America and shows that it was deliberately orchestrated by God-hating progressives. Compared with the decent, morally ordered, child and family-friendly nation it once was, today’s progressive dominated America is a different country altogether.  It is deeply and angrily,

“.... divided, unable to deal with crises foreign or domestic, the world’s greatest debtor nation with 50 million people on food stamps, rampant divorce and family breakdown, unprecedented sexual anarchy with 110 million with STDs, almost 60 million abusing alcohol, and over 70 million taking mood-altering drugs. On so many levels, America is becoming ever more “bizarre”—diametrically opposed to logic and common sense. Although America’s bizarro transformation has been in progress for decades, it burst into full bloom in the age of Obama. ” (p. 10)

Here’s how retired Marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North describes bizarro America, where according to the U.S. government North is an extremist (state enemy) because:

” I am a Christian and meet regularly with other Christians to study Gods word. My faith convinces me the prophecies in the Holy Bible are true. I believe in the sanctity of life, oppose abortion and want to preserve marriage as the union of a man and woman. I am a veteran with skills and knowledge from military training and combat. I own several firearms, frequently shoot them, buy ammunition and consider efforts to infringe on my Second Amendment rights to be wrong and unconstitutional. I frequently support the sovereignty of the United States, am deeply concerned about our economy, increasingly higher taxes, illegal immigration, soaring unemployment and actions by our government that will bury my children beneath a mountain of debt. Apparently, all this makes me a ‘right-wing extremist.’ At least that’s what it says in the April 7, 2009 ‘assessment’ issued by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security.” (ibid, pp. 14-15)

In upside-down progressive dominated and debauched America, many key Biblical, political, and cultural concepts actually amount to their opposite. For example, the Genesis account ex nihilo is backward, anti-science superstition; the two-sexes, male and female and traditional marriage are slavery; the words 'discernment, discrimination, and judgment' conjure up clouds of negativity and foreboding; sin is not sin but self-actualization; tolerance means mandatory celebration of vice; charity is entitlement; envy is righteousness; theft is economic justice; abortion is choice; faith is ignorance; Lucifer is mans’ genetic creator, and the world we live in is a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings. This is the “scientific” theory put forward by a number of progressive physicists and Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association.

While thoroughly corrupt progressives see the signs of corruption, perversion, lawlessness and insanity over-spreading our nation as signs of progress cheered on by large numbers of morally-debauched liberals, some Americans choose to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to what is going on while still others foresee only disaster.  Ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn however, holds out hope, our only hope,  to a weary, spiritually disconsolate people.  In his 1983 Templeton Prize address, “Men Have Forgotten God,” he stated,

All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we redirect our consciousness, in repentance, to the Creator of all; without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain.”

(Rev. 14: 6-13) Three Angels, Babylon, Judgment

As the rotting corpse of Christendom is increasingly overrun with Islamist terrorists, former Protestant America rapidly segues from post-Christian to actively hostile toward its' founding religion.  America's apostasy, idolatry, occult paganism, pan sexuality, rampant abortion, drug use, sodomy, homosexual marriage, and other sins are eerily similar to the pre-flood generation, Sodom and Gomorrah and Egypt, noted for its' occultism.  Now in "The Rise of the ‘Done With Church’ Population," Thom Schultz details yet more corruption---the rise of the de-churched or "dones" generation. 

 Many of the 'dones' said Schultz, are among the most dedicated and active people in their congregations, the people on whom a church relies for lay leadership, service and financial support.  But they say they are done with church, done with being told what to do and are leaving.  Among other reasons: fatigue with the Sunday routine of "plop, pray and pay." After sitting through countless sermons and Bible studies, "they feel they’ve heard it all." (churchleaders.com)

And the problem is compounded by the fact that younger people in the next generation, the Millennials,

"....are not lining up to refill the emptying pews."

America Under Judgment

According to Evangelical preacher John MacArthur, because America’s sins are already akin to that of Israel’s our nation is already under divine judgment:

Materialism, drunkard pleasure seeking, arrogant conceit, defiant sinfulness, moral perversion, and corrupt leadership… Do you not see [them] in America?”  (John MacArthur Says America Is Under Divine Judgment, Anugrah Kumar, Christian Post Contributor, June 2011)

 MacArthur identified Israel’s six sins leading to six curses on that nation from Isaiah 5, saying those misdeeds were not isolated to Israel:

 “I look at America… people say what is wrong with this country. That is what’s wrong with this country. Right there. They have rejected the Word, the law of the Lord, the Holy One Himself.”

Talking about the sin of arrogant conceit, he said America was guilty too. It is when a society no longer wants to hear from God,

 “....  but wants to be its own authority where every man does that which is right in his own eyes and feels that he is the ultimate authority, he is the ultimate source of truth..."

MacArthur added that America has corrupt leaders, too. The Hebrew words for “heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks,” as mentioned in Isaiah 5:22, refers to corrupt leaders:

 “What do we have here? We have here, folks, Anthony Weiner type people…corrupt leaders. Is there ever any end to this corruption…who literally prostitute their position and justify wicked people for a bribe and take away the rights of the innocent people…politicians and leaders who can be bought.

So what is divine punishment?  In answer, McArthur quotes Isaiah 5:5-7:

“Now I will tell you what I am going to do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it will be destroyed; I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled. I will make it a wasteland, neither pruned nor cultivated, and briers and thorns will grow there. I will command the clouds not to rain on it.”  

Three Angels of Rev. 14: 6-13

Revelation 14, verses 6-13 have one purpose--to warn apostates, God-haters, mockers, scoffers, and de-churched "dones" of the coming judgment in order that men may repent and turn to the Lord in true faith. 

The first angel is sent to men who 'sit on the earth,' meaning they are indifferent, unconcerned, bored, and careless. To these indifferent people an angel appears, flying in mid-heaven so as to be heard by all, saying, "Fear God, and give Him glory, for the hour of His judgment is come."

This angel warns everyone who continues in unbelief that they will not escape the wrath of God.

The second angel follows, saying:

"Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, who from the wine of the passion of her whoring has been giving all the nations to drink."

Babylon symbolizes the world as the source of seduction, fornication, rebellion, and apostasy.  Babylon's spirit captivates and enslaves 'men who sit on the earth' and seduces "dones" to fall away from their first love.  Babylon's future fall is spoken of here as if it had already occurred so as to serve as a warning to the wicked of what will surely come, thus the third angel declares in a loud voice,

"If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name." 

According to the third angel, all people who are attached to this world are going to perish with the world.  If your choice is the world (and Satan) you must expect to suffer the consequences.  You cannot live in sin and get away with it, meaningthe wrath of God inevitably falls upon all who worship the beast out of the sea, the beast out of the earth and Babylon.

Yoga's Terrifying Demonic Reality

"A little over a year ago, I said yoga was demonic.... By demonic I mean it's a spiritual act to a being other than the God of the Bible. And, for those unfamiliar with me, I'm no raging Christian fundamentalist. My most vocal critics tend to be from the fundamentalist tribe as I do drink alcohol, have been known to use strong language, and talk very frankly about the joys of married sex. I'm no prude, but I am a pastor." (Christian Yoga? It's a Stretch, Pastor Mark Driscoll)

Father Gabriel Amorth, Chief Exorcist at the Vatican agrees. After having performed more than 70,000 exorcisms, Amorth certainly knows whereof he speaks:

"Practising yoga brings evil as does reading Harry Potter. They may both seem innocuous but they both deal with magic and that leads to evil."   "Yoga is the Devil's work. You think you are doing it for stretching your mind and body but it leads to Hinduism. All these oriental religions are based on the false belief of reincarnation....Satan is always hidden and the thing he desires more than anything is for people to believe he does not exist. He studies each and everyone of us and our tendencies towards good and evil and then he tempts us." (Yoga is the Work of the Devil, Nick Pisa, dailymail.co, 11-25-2011)

Today millions of Westerners are risking everything to seek the occult world and its' alluring power:

"Millions of Americans practice forms of Eastern meditation and yoga to be released from the bondage of opposites and to succeed in joining the dark and light sides of existence."  Dr. Peter Jones, Star Wars and the Ancient Religion

In "One or Two?" Dr. Jones, Director of truthXchange and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary California writes that a wide variety of occult spirituality is now available. There is something for everyone:

"A Course in Miracles, Alchemy, American Indian Quest, Ancient Mythology, Arkashic Record, Aryuvedic Medicine, Astrology, Bahai'i Unity, Buddhism, Buddhist/Christian Dialogue, Chakras, Channeling, Christian Monastic Mysticism, Crystals, Divination, Dream work, Druidism, Eastern Meditation, Eckankar (soul travel), Ecofeminism, Enneagram, EST, Feng Shui, Gnosticism (ancient and modern), Goddess worship, Hare Krishna, Hermeticism, Higher Self, Hinduism, Holism, Human Potential Movement, Hypnosis, I Ching, Iridology, Jungian Transpersonal Psychology, Kabbalah, Karma, Mandalas, Mantras, Mind-altering drugs, Parapsychology, Past Life Regressions, Reiki, Re-incarnation, Religious syncretism, Rolfing, Sacred Technologies, Santeria, Scientology, Shamanism, Sufism, T'ai Chi, Tantrism, Tarot Cards, Teilhardism, Therapeutic Touch, Tikkun, Transcendental Meditation, Ufology, Urantia Book, Visualization, Wicca, Yoga, Zen." (pp. 40-41)

It is well documented that perversions, murder, possession and other evils, including human sacrifice, occur in Western witchcraft, Satanism and Eastern mysticism (e.g., tantric yoga) as well as pagan and pantheist occult religion in general. In his "Occultism, Witchcraft and Cultural Fashions," the noted cultural anthropologist Mircea Eliade of the University of Chicago refers to the interconnections between European witchcraft and Hindu Tantric yoga. He argues that "even a rapid perusal of the Hindu and Tibetan documents" reveals the connection:

"As a matter of fact, all the features associated with European witches are – with the exception of Satan and the Sabbath – claimed also by Indo-Tibetan yogis and magicians. They too are supposed to fly through the air, render themselves invisible, kill at a distance, master demons and ghosts, and so on. Moreover, some of
(them) boast that they break all the religious taboos and social rules; that they practice human sacrifice, cannibalism, and all manner of orgies, including incestuous intercourse, and that they eat excrement, nauseating animals, and devour human corpses. In other words, they proudly claim all the crimes and horrible ceremonies cited ad nauseum in the western European witch trials." (Psychic Forces, Chapter 22, "The Occult History of Parapsychology," Clifford Wilson and John Weldon, pp. 341-49)

The very popular Tantra Kundalini yoga is based on the occultic chakra system which teaches that a universal evolutionary energy (Kundalini Shakti, the Supreme Power; serpent power) coiled at the base of the spine flows through human beings and through all of creation, uniting everything above and everything below, thus acknowledging divinity in all things and all people. Through strenuous yoga and other occult techniques outlined in ancient and modern texts, Kundalini Shakti uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body. During so-called kundalini arousal, which may last for months or even years, protracted insanity and/or demonization must be endured. In the words of power yogi Muktananda:

"I was assailed by all sorts of perverse and defiling emotions....my breathing (became) disturbed...my abdomen would swell with air...my mind was sick with fear (my) thoughts became confused, meaningless. My limbs and body got hotter and hotter....Then I felt a searing pain...I wanted to run away, but my legs were locked tight in the lotus posture.....Then...a moonlike sphere...came floating in (it) struck against my eyes and...passed inside me...I was terrified (but) still locked in the lotus posture (with) my head forced down and glued to the ground....I started to make a sound like a camel, which alternated with the roaring of a tiger (I went) completely insane (and jumped and hopped) like a frog (while) my limbs (shook) violently. (Later) I learned that this was a Hatha Yoga process effected by the Goddess Kundalini in order for Her to move up through the spinal column into the sahasrana (upper psychic center.)" (Play of Consciousness, Swami Muktananda, pp. 75-81, 84-85, 88-89)

With continued practice, surrender, and preparation, one day the kundalini current (possessing spirit) will reach full voltage and there will no longer be anyone home but an unholy spirit residing in an empty shell of a body:

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity. The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)." Finally it happened – explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated. Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels." "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..." (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45)

Yoga is an occult or mystical technique that originated in the Orient. Eastern mysticism, Wicca, contemporary Luciferian Theosophy, and occult spiritual New Age have spiritistic or animistic backgrounds resulting in the development of psychic powers and contact with demons, or familiar spirits.  

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) was a noted German theologian, minister and evangelist who pastored, counseled, and delivered thousands of people suffering from the occult, including the demonically oppressed. In his book, "Occult ABC: Exposing Occult Practices and Ideologies," he wrote:

" Missionaries and Christian researchers who have lived in Asia for many years claim that between 95 and 98 percent of the nonChristian population have psychic powers (which) vary considerably in strength, depending on the extent to which the person has been involved with the occult practices of Asiatic religions." (p. 9)

Behind magic, mysticism and the occult, the yoga system of initiation is present. The first stage of yoga has the aim of helping the student to "gain control of his consciousness and his body," said Koch, who goes on to enumerate the mental and physical exercises:

"meditation, autogenic training, concentration, and "koan," a litany involving the continuous repetion of a mantra (secret word). The physical exercises include breathing exercises and various bodily postures like the lotus position, the cobra position, and the headstand."

The first stage of yoga is psychosomatic, meaning it produces unity of body and mind. The second stage builds off of the first in order to produce control of the unconscious mind:

"When a person has mastered the second stage, he can control and guide, for instance, his visceral nerves. I have met masters of the second stage who can perform astonishing feats." (p. 258)

The third stage of initiation is concerned with the mastery of natural powers:

"It is the specialty of Tibetan yogis to combine magic and yoga. (A) master of this art, the adept (apprentice) has to be able to produce energy in the form of heat in a natural object, such as melting ice by means of mental concentration." (Koch, p. 259)

At the fourth stage of initiation, the yogi gains mastery of the dark arts and new powers including telepathy, presentiments, second sight and all the powers of a supernatural order which are indispensable for occult activities. (Koch, p. 260)

Former guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj, now a committed follower of Jesus Christ, describes his former occult rituals and their terrifying consequences:

"Nothing was more important than our daily transcendental meditation, the heart of Yoga..... But it could also be dangerous. Frightening psychic experiences awaited the...meditator, similar to a bad trip on drugs. Demons described in the Vedas had been known to take possession of some Yogis. Kundalini power, said to be coiled like a serpent at the base of the spine, could produce ecstatic experiences when released in deep meditation or...it could do great mental and bodily harm. The line between ecstasy and horror was very fine...During daily meditation I began to have visions of psychedelic colors, to hear unearthly music, and to visit exotic planets where the gods conversed with me, encouraging me to attain even higher states of consciousness. Sometimes in my trance I encountered the same horrible demonic creatures...depicted by the images in Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto, and other religious temples. It was a frightful experience, but the Brahmacharya explained that it was normal and urged me to pursue the quest for Self Realization. At times I experienced a sense of mystical unity with the universe. I was the universe, Lord of all, omnipotent, omnipresent. My instructors were excited at this. I was obviously a chosen vessel, destined for early success in the search for union with Brahman. The Forces that had guided my father were now guiding me." (Death of a Guru, Rabindranath R. Maharaj, pp. 56-57)

Dr. Koch strongly advises Christians to steer clear of yoga:

"There are many Christians who believe that it is possible to participate in (the) first stage of yoga without harm. It is merely a matter of relaxation exercises (they say). If only this were true! Counseling experience tells otherwise. This technique of relaxation and these "emptying exercises" (of the mind) lead to the inflowing of another spirit---other spirits. The students of yoga do not notice it." (pp. 257-258)

Yoga does not liberate, it enslaves, it binds. It does not enlighten but rather causes confusion. It does not prepare the way for Jesus Christ but rather makes people immune to redemption through Christ, for it does not open the door for the Holy Spirit but for unholy spirits.

In post-Christian America, occult spirituality is all the rage, thus it comes as no surprise that yoga courses are being conducted in churches and schools all over southern California, New York, and elsewhere. Course descriptions read:

"Age and developmentally appropriate yoga poses, breathing exercises, chanting, meditation, and relaxation techniques offer a child-friendly relationship to the physical and philosophical traditions of yoga." (The Emperor's New Yoga Pants, Mary Eady, truthexchange, Dec. 1, 2011) 

The almost 2000 year old Book of Revelation summarized and distilled over 1500 years of biblical prophecy in its far-reaching vision of the final world order, a planetary empire involving religious, economic, political, and military forces under an occult spiritual regime of absolute oppression and delusion known as Mystery Babylon.

Under the guise of science, evolution, and technology, the already emerging world order offers itself to us as Hermetic wisdom teachings whose origins are ancient Babylonia, Egypt, and according to New Age historians, pre-flood Atlantis.  As it was in the days of Noah, the Babylonians and Egyptians were earmarked by their embrace of the Great Lie and by their sorcery, initiations (i.e., four stages of yoga), secret words (mantras), psychic powers, hedonism and androgyny.

God the Father Almighty does not deny the reality of psychic powers but we learn that the true source of occult powers is the Great Red Dragon, Satan. Yahweh abhorred these practices and warned His people against them in Isaiah 8:19, Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and Leviticus 19:31.

Respected English archeologist and historian Alexander Hislop traced Babylon's Mystery Religion, first to Egypt and then to India. He said:

"The Babylonians...worshipped a goddess mother and son (Semiramis and Tammuz). From Babylon, this worship...spread to the ends of the earth. In Egypt, the mother and child were worshipped (as) Isis and Osiris. In India, even to this day, as Isi (or Parvati) and Ishwara....(Thus the) Hindu mythology is admitted to be essentially Babylonian." (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, p. 11)

The mystery religion of Babylon is the mother of all post-flood mystery religions (i.e., Eastern mysticism, Theosophy, esoteric Free Masonry), initiations (stages of yoga) and occult evolutionary science. It promises the keys to psychic powers, immortality, and divinity. Over the centuries it has fermented "into a refined wine---the Chateau vin du Rothschild of mystical wines," said Tal Brooke. Revelation predicts that at some point the whole world becomes drunk on the wine of Babylon, its psychically-empowered celebrants convinced of their own divinity (Rev. 16:17-21; Rev. 17: 1-6).

The Reprobate Marquis de Sade: Left's Apostle of Evil and Man of Diverse Sexual Orientations

America is undergoing an extreme makeover.  The wrecking crews are Leftists.  They believe that everything about our civilization is an illusion, including our created condition as either man or woman.  In other words, because they do not believe that the Triune God of the Bible exists, they believe as a consequence that our civilization and our created condition are merely social constructs. To the wreckers we are but plastic figures that can be melted down and remolded.  The wrecking crews conceal their insane ambitions behind deceptive code words such as diversity, multiculturalism, sensitivity, sexual orientation, safe schools, choice, sustainability, choice, and sex education.

It is the purpose of this essay to rip aside the deceptions and peel away the false front behind which squats an evil,  perverse ideology that stamps approval upon perversions and other evils of every sort. 

America's Left is a massive criminal enterprise comprised of two sorts of people: remorseless psychopaths willing to engage in evil and those who are willing to aid and abet the former.  In the words of David Horowitz:

"Socialist economics, critical theory, and progressive loyalties have produced the worst atrocities, the most horrific suffering, the most crushing oppression, and the greatest misery in all human history. But not for a moment since the fall of the Berlin Wall, has the Left begun to face its failure, or confront its deeds.  It has simply moved to another trench in its permanent war against the West, it has degenerated from a Stalinist universalism to a neo-fascist tribalism, which is what multiculturalism is really about."  (Mussolini and Neo-Fascist Tribalism: Up From Multiculturalism” David Horowitz, Jan. 1998).

Identity politics is the spawn of multiculturalism. In short, it's the process by which politically empowered 'tribes' are created. Its working principal can be boiled down to: God is dead therefore we are at liberty to un-create ourselves and self-actualize as we please." 

Special rights tribes, be they witches, vampires, goddesses, Islamic radicals, illegal aliens, or the ˜sexually oriented variety, are not just autonomous and privileged but off-limits to outside criticism.  Each tribe establishes a ˜cultural narrative' and then defines its rules of authenticity.  This is multiculturalism in a nutshell.  Multicultural tribes are politically sacrosanct.  They are weapons of mass destruction fueled by narcissism, covetousness, resentment and ingratitude being wielded by the Left in its war against our traditional culture, infrastructure, and evil white people, particularly conservative Christians.

When we consider that the Left's great heroes are murderous barbarians such as Pol Pot, Kim Jung II, Fidel Castro, Lenin, Stalin, and Sadam Hussein it comes as no surprise that the evil reprobate, the Marquis de Sade, is likewise one of the Lefts heroic icons. De Sade, role model forpansexual orientation tribes, is celebrated by the Left as a "heroic apostle of individual rights, a giant of philosophical thought, and a martyr for freedom of conscience."  (Sade, a Biographical Essay, by Lawrence Bongie, 2000)

In a 1951 essay, "Must We Burn Sade," Simone de Beauvoir (icon of the man-hating lesbian feminists) identifies Sade as a forerunner of Freud with an intuitive grasp of the nature of the human heart.  Beauvoir, a sex-obsessed lesbian, wrote: 

"Not only does Sade anticipate the ˜pansexuality"  of Freud, but he also makes eroticism the mainspring of human behavior. He knew that the perversions that are vulgarly regarded as moral monstrosities or psychological defects actually envelope intentionality.  In a passage in "La Nouvelle Justine" he tries to explain coprophillia (sexual excitement over feces), he points out that the truth of a thing lies not in what it is but in the meaning it has taken on for us in the course of our individual experience.  Intuitions such as these allow us to hail Sade as a precursor of psychoanalysis."  (Biography by Douglas B. Lynott, crimelibrary.com) 

In the dialectical jargon of Stalinist identity politics, Sade was a man of diverse pansexual orientations (tribal identities) which birthed his many alternative lifestyle choices (authentic cultural narratives).

Douglas Lynott not only provides us with an idea of Sades perverse sexual orientations, but also the depths of evil which motivate the Left:

"Assisted by his wife, two other young adult women and his valet, Sade assembled his captives daily for a melange of activities: masturbation, fellatio, sodomy (both heterosexual and homosexual), sodomy chains, and scourging.  The very acts that cause people of reason and morals to recoil in terror provided the Marquis with sensations of ecstasy: the physical and emotional domination of another and the violent destruction of youthful innocence. This ecstasy is portrayed by one of the protagonists of"Philosophy in the Boudoir," who exclaims, "How delicious to corrupt, to stifle all semblances of virtue and religion in that young heart!" (ibid)

Sade revealed that dark inner promptingsare the source of his pansexual orientations when he wrote:

"I wanted only to try to live in accord with the promptings which came from my true self. Was that so very difficult?" (ibid)

Another word for prompting is soulish base impulse. Very simply, there are two broad categories of human impulses---good or benign and dark.  As free moral agents, we always have the choice to either act upon or to reject dark impulses.  Sade obviously never developed the virtue of self-control necessary to reject them. Thus, he first became controlled by them, and then eventually was transformed by them into a foully evil creature whose name became synonymous with sadomasochism, which had thus become the source of his true self.

The Lefts operative scheme now comes into focus.  First, they hold out sinful temptations to seduce the unwary into acting upon dark impulses (self-actualization process). Once actualized, dark erotic impulses are deceptively cast as sexual orientations.  In this manner Leftists create pan-sexually oriented tribes or special rights groups which are then manipulated into destroying America's culture while simultaneously allowing Leftists to gain access to our most vulnerable: babies, children and young adults.

As revealed by David Horowitz in "The Politics of Bad Faith" Leftists plan to create a queer utopia populated by queer genderless beings:

"Queer revolution is thus the ultimate subversive project: It proclaims not only the death of God, but of Nature's Law; theirs is the ultimate Nietzschean fantasy: a world in which humanity is God. The future will give birth to a new revolutionary people, no longer male and female, but queer. Queer is the Promethean category of the post-modernist Left." (discoverthenetwork) 

The violation and destruction of the innocence of youth is seen in the following examples from our Leftist controlled academia:

1.Prof. Peter Singer of Princeton advocates bestiality: "Sex with animals does not always include cruelty; not everyone objects to being used by his or her dog"

2Prof. Marjorie Garber of Harvard encourages "not just love of dogs, but love with dogs as well."

3.Prof. Susan Scotto of Mount Holyoke teaches a "stripping class"

4.Prof. Harris Mirkin of the U. of Missouri encourages pedophilia: "Children are the last bastion of the old sexual morality."

5.U. of Colorado Prof. Craig Palmer wrote the book, "A Natural History of Rape" which states that rape confers a selective advantage on men.  (Whistleblower: Brainwashing 101, vol. 14, no. 9)

Efforts at violently destroying the innocence of youth are evidenced by the following examples:

1.Time Magazine: School Event Exposes Massive Cultural Campaign to Promote Homosexuality to Kids (Robert Knight and Benjamin Frichtl; Concerned Women for America) "A cocktail party in Manhattan with billionaire liquor magnate Edgar Bronfman, Sr., and Clinton political strategist David Mixner was held in May to raise money for the Point Foundation, a scholarship program to turn gay kids into homosexual activists.

 2. Turning girls into boys (Peter LaBarbera, WorldNetDaily.com, Feb. 2002) "A female-to-male transgender conference attended by hundreds of young women including teenagers was sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, world's leading homosexual organization, included a panel on How to Do SM (sadomasochism)....a grotesque and disturbing pedophilic painting (was) prominently displayed (of) a baby boy lying naked on his back being sodomized by the nipple of a baby bottle."

 3.The Little Black Book Queer in the 21st Century: this sadomasochistic book was distributed to hundreds of teens at Brook School, Brookline, MA, Apr. 30, 2005 at an event organized by the Gay and Straight Education Network (GSLEN).  Among other activities kids were encouraged to explore was pee play: urinating on each other. (www.article8.org)

Below are three more examples demonstrating the Lefts success in unleashing destructive forces of uninhibited, perversely morbid sex:

1. NYPD Black and Blue? NY Police Recruit at Sadistic Sex Festival (Peter LaBarbera:  "Sadistic sex practitioners defend...whipping, beating, hand-anal fisting, burning their bodies with hot wax, bondage as consensual." (americansfortruth) 

2. Dance Sponsored by Gay Millennium March Features Homosexual Orgy, Gruesome Sadism: Eyewitnesses saw a sadistic stage scene in which a man was strapped to a large St. Andrews (x) cross, his head covered with a black hood while another man stuck needles into his chest." (ibid)

3. US teacher sexpidemic spreading across planet: Long list of American rapists joined by female Australians. (Joe Kovacs, WorldNetDaily.com, 12/14/05)

Having successfully unleashed sexual anarchy upon America, devilish Leftists now seek to have anyone who objects be declared mentally insane:

"Calif. Psychologist Wants Extreme Bias Against Homosexuals Added to DSM." (Washington Post, Shankar Vedantam)

The two sorts of people, remorseless reprobates willing to engage in evil and those willing to aid and abet the former have purposely uncapped the bottle holding the chaos-producing sex genie, arrogantly believing they could force it to do their bidding.  As a result, rampant sex crimes and the foul stench of the Marquis de Sade's filthy perversions waft freely throughout our land, corrupting and befouling everything they touch.

The truths which the evil Left seek to obscure are twofold:

The Triune God is not dead and we are meant for higher things and noble causes. We are not meant to behave like dogs in heat.

We are men and women, the spiritual image bearers of the Holy Triune God, not pansexual emergent products of evolutionary forces.  These lies of the Left are the true social constructions---birthed by dark impulses, brought to life in the imagination---empowered and applauded by the infinity of darkness.

Why the President Made a Public Spectacle of Himself

In "Obama the Climate Bully Pounds the Pulpit in Paris," Calvin Beisner writes that during Obama's sermon at the UN climate summit in Paris Monday, the President—"the same President who travels the world apologizing for his country"—played the classic American bully running roughshod over other world leaders, the truth, logic and reality.   But this is to be expected from a classic narcissist like Obama, a man with a Messiah complex that could boast that his inauguration as President was when the oceans stopped rising. (Townhall.com, December 2, 2015) 

In his Commentary on Psalm 33/2, 8, St. Augustine notes that a dirty house (depraved conscience) is the miserable condition of all whose inflexible pride makes them refuse to face their own conscience lest they be overwhelmed by the wickedness they find there. (Day by Day with Saint Augustine, Donald X. Burt, p. 107)

The narcissistic man or woman is a self-righteous hypocrite, a narcissistic bully of inflexible pride who believes he or she is morally superior to other people. Such a person refuses to tolerate the knowledge of his or her own weaknesses, failings, and sinfulness, thus is constantly engaged in trampling over and bullying other people into submission and sweeping the evidence of their own remarkably consistent sins under the rug of their conscience in order to preserve their carefully constructed public facades.  

Narcissists have feelings of invulnerability and as they believe they can get away with anything---even breaking the law-- they engage in greater and greater risks such as telling whopping lies and running roughshod over other world leaders.  This serves two purposes: to prove they are in fact superior and to maintain the 'high' they receive from getting away with their transgressions.

All of this is why as the saying goes, "pride goes before a fall" because mans' sin nature, particularly his pride, blinds him (or her) to reality.  Thus it can be said that as narcissists are blind to the shameful spectacles they make of themselves while foolishly dancing on the edge of the abyss they are also willfully blind to the shock and disgust of other people and the danger of falling in because they have willfully chosen ignorance.

In "The Word of Flux" reformed theologian Rousas John Rushdoony tells us that the reason for man's willful choice of ignorance rather than Truth and reality is sin:

"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."   (The Word of Flux, p. 51) 

St. Augustine agrees. Pride, said Augustine, is not only the beginning of all sin but its' downfall as well.   This is because pride eventually forces the narcissist to make a shameful spectacle of himself before other people--- even before TV cameras and world leaders.   Blinded by pride the foolish narcissist such as Obama cannot see that through his bullying, lies, superior attitude and other contemptuous behavior he has been made to openly confess to the inner wickedness he refuses to admit the existence of, thus his narcissism is his downfall since it forces him to publicly declare the very secrets he wants to hide from himself and the world.

Leftists: Psychopaths Because Given Over By God to the Wrath of Abandonment

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, James Taranto describes the growing bloodlust of the psychopathic progressive left:

"America's liberal left is preoccupied with salacious fantasies of political violence. These take two forms: dreams of leftist insurrection, and nightmares of reactionary bloodshed."   (The Politics of Bloodlust, The Wall Street Journal, Jan. 27, 2011)

Taranto goes on to report that a sympathetic mainstream media suppresses and/or whitewashes the former type of fantasy while treating the latter as if it reflects reality. 

Psychopathy: What Is It?

John Ray, M.A., Ph.D, summarizes some of the central characteristics of psychopathy as follows:

"He is not obviously 'mad.' he is often highly intelligent; he is unmoved by brutality (except to enjoy perpetrating it); he has no moral or ethical standards; he is deeply (but discreetly) in love with himself (narcissism) so secretly despises others and thinks they are fit only to be dominated and exploited by him and those like him; he is a great manipulator who loves getting others to do his bidding by deception or otherwise; he is the master of the lie and the false pretense but sees no reason to be consistent from occasion to occasion; he will say anything to gain momentary praise or admiration; his only really strongly felt emotions seem to be hate and contempt and he is particularly enraged by those who have what he wants and will be totally unscrupulous in trying to seize what others have for himself.  But above all, the psychopath does not seem to be able to tell right from wrong and, as a result, does sometimes commit or connive at murders and other heinous crimes with what seems to be a clear conscience."   (jonjayray.tripod.com)

Because psychopaths hold other people in contempt and are without remorse they freely manipulate and use their intended victims for purposes of self-gratification. Other common characteristics include:  moral relativism (no absolutes), an overwhelming sense of entitlement, parasitism, psychological and physical bullying, casual cruelty, pleasure at inflicting pain (sadism), insensitivity, dishonesty, pathological lying, aggression, impulsiveness, promiscuity, and irresponsibility .

Omnipotence, in the case of Western "scientific and evolutionary" empowered NWO psychopaths comes from having "scientifically enabled" power over the Holy Trinity and His Revealed Word so as to deprive the Lord of the power of His own spoken Word in order to give their own words the active force of the Triune Gods creative words. In this way, empowered god-men can unweave and refashion creation, reinvent human beings, paganize Scripture, and creatively destroy the family and society as needed.   They can decide who lives and who must die, what we may have or not have, what we are allowed to know and not know and who the Official State Enemies are. This is a psychopaths power trip.   

What drives psychopaths is a ravenous hunger for making other people suffer. Just as normal humans enjoy seeing other people happy and thriving, the psychopath enjoys the opposite.  As their lack of empathy results in blindness to the humanity of their victims this in turn permits victims to be sacrificed without remorse on the altar of narcissism, for with the negation of humanity intended victims are no longer human beings but objects to be used, abused, tormented and discarded at will. This monstrous evil finds expression over and over in the writings of the sexual psychopath, the Marquis de Sade:

"The philosopher sates his appetites without inquiring to know what his enjoyments may cost others, and without remorse." (Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones, p. 26)

Paul Hollander's book "Political Pilgrims: Western Intellectuals in Search of the Good Society" recounts what depraved Leftist intellectuals and apostate priests did for many decades in the Soviet era. To quote one Amazon reviewer:

"Political Pilgrims is the amazing story of how Western intellectuals embraced Marxist tyrants at the very moment their colleagues were rotting in prison cells, and the common people everyone claimed to be concerned for, were starving. The book relates how cultural and religious leaders from the West, including familiar names, visited the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and other communist countries, and told the most appalling lies." (ibid, Ray)

Among well-known psychopaths of the 20th century are  Pol Pot, Hitler, Beatrice Webb, Margaret Sanger, Lenin and Stalin.  Kaganovitch, Stalin's brother-in-law and closest collaborator described Stalin as no longer human:

"Even when he exhibited some emotions, they all did not seem to belong to him. They were as false as the scale on top of armor...He was not human at all..." (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 53)

Milovan Djilas, Communist leader of Yugoslavia, perceptively described the mesmerizing satanic energy emanating from the 'no longer human' Stalin:

"Was it not so that the demonic power and energy of Stalin consisted in this, that he made the (Communist) movement and every person in it pass to a state of confusion and stupefaction, thus creating and ensuring his reign of fear..." (ibid, p. 54)

According to Ray, psychopaths of our own time include the average left-wing academic, George Galloway, Castro, John Kerry, Bill Clinton and  Barack Obama--- prominent members of America's Progressive Ruling Class who,   

"...prays to themselves as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image..." ("The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It" Angelo M. Codevilla p. xix)

Another characteristic of psychopathy is sophistry.  In a penetrating analysis of sophistry, J. Budziszewski, professor of government at the University of Texas, Austin, observes that the sophists' view of reality is paradoxical because it ultimately denies reality. Sophists are shock troopers of evil says Budziszewski, and according to their satanically-inverted view of reality:

"Man is the measure of all things, but man has no fixed nature. Man measures all things by his words, but words have no fixed meanings. Language is not an instrument for finding truth, but for changing it. Those who can master it, master all. It is a good creed for rogues, and commends itself to tyrants in every age." (What We Can't Not Know, Budziszewski, p. 167)

Sophistry is the devilish religion of the depraved Ruling Class. Sophistry says man evolved from star-dust, is a free-thinker, and the inventer of his own truth and morality even though sophistry denies the reality of truth, morality and reality.   Sophistry says depraved man can unmake and then remake himself,  thus he is free to divinize himself as in days of old. Moreover, males can be females, females can be males, or they can be androgynous (transgender).  

For our generation of psychopaths there is no Holy Trinity, no Moral Law, no immutable Truth, no sin, and no fear of judgment and hell.   Thus they are free to be evil: to think evil, speak evil  and commit acts of evil since there is only sovereign willful 'self' who knows only personal selfishness, ambition, physical lust and hate.

What Causes Psychopathy?

Within the West's dominant naturalistic evolutionary worldview grounded in the ignorant, superstitious claim that life emerged from inert matter and after billions of years of evolution man evolved from apes, psychopathy is explained by fatalistic conceptions holding that anger, perversion, rage, jealousy, hatred, envy, and other destructive impulses are caused by chemical changes in the brain, genetic neurological predispositions and social factors in upbringing.    Any or all of these naturalistic explanations supposedly account for a psychopath's lack of conscience.

However, against the naturalistic worldview, the Genesis account records:

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Genesis 1:27, KJB

For fifteen hundred years, Christendom and then later Protestant America, followed St. Augustine (AD 354-430) in affirming that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent Triune God the Father Almighty then it logically follows that each person is a trinity of being — of soul, spirit, and body:

"The essence of the human is not the body, but the soul. It is the soul alone that God made in his own image and the soul that he loves....For the sake of the soul...the Son of God came into the world...." (Incomplete Work on Matthew, Homily 25, Ancient Christian Devotional, Oden and Crosby, p. 153)

In Biblical thought, the body is inert matter organized and vitalized by the soul. A human life is a soul which informs inert matter, thus a body without a soul is no more than a disorganized mass of cells that would quickly deconstruct.  ("Body, Mind, and Soul," Paster Louis Pernot, Nov. 28, 2010)

The noblest part of the soul is spirit (reason, will, conscience). Spirit is the unique property that distinguishes soul from matter.  It is immortal and self-aware. It can will and think and is freely responsible for what it thinks, wills, and does.  As conscience is a component of spirit,  naturalistic explanations and possible solutions like talk-therapy, medications and other reform methods are neither able to explain or able to cleanse and regenerate conscience.

 It is the Revealed Word of God, not fallen men and their worldly wisdom, that reveals the cause of psychopathy.  Scripture says that when God gives hardened, unrepentant sinners and God-haters who consistently and deliberately suppress the truth about His existence (no matter how strong the evidence proving He exists) over to the "wrath of abandonment" they can no longer think straight.   Though their intellect remains intact their conscience is seared (depraved), making their reasoning useless for pursuit of the good and true.  Additionally, their souls become materialized (dried out and turned inward), making them prisoners of their own cosmically-inflated egos, covetousness, gnawing envy, lusts, perversions, greed, gluttony, and hate as well as of afflictions of the mind — belief in silly, incredibly stupid things (i.e., evolutionary cosmogonies, abiogenesis, panspermia; multiverses; parallel universes); paranoia, fear of the void, anxiety dreams, compulsive thoughts of murder and other evil fantasies.  

 The wrath of abandonment means that the Lord has delivered them over to worthless, useless, hardened, loveless minds:

"And because they did not think it worthwhile to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong. They are filled with all unrighteousness, evil, greed, and wickedness. They are full of envy, murder, disputes, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, arrogant, proud, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, and unmerciful. Although they know full well God's just sentence - that those who practice such things deserve to die - they not only do them, but even applaud others who practice them" (Ro. 1:28-32)

In "A Nation Abandoned By God" John MacArthur explains that a depraved mind is one that's been tested by our Lord and found useless, therefore disqualified for its intended purpose:

"The reasoning faculty has been corrupted by the influences that surround it....And when that happens and your entire sense of morality is warped, then your conscience is ill-informed and it doesn't function.  So you have unconscionable behavior....A depraved mind, reasoning faculty so corrupt that it must be rejected as non-functioning.  And as a result of that, what happens?  God gave them over, verse 28, to a depraved mind.  So as a result, they do the things that are not...what?...proper, fitting, sensible, reasonable." (A Nation Abandoned By God, John MacArthur)

If instead of "psychopath" the phrase "lawless natural man" is used since psychopathic characteristics are distributed to greater and lesser degrees in unregenerate natural men, then we have a description of the evil-state of men in these last days:
 
"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy." 2 Tim. 3:2, KJB

Lawless natural men have,

"... have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumbling block of their iniquity before their face…. (Ezekiel 14:3)  
 
When the son of perdition arises, lawless natural men will be irresistibly drawn to and be captivated by the Lawless One, the Evil One's earthly representative.  The Lawless One is the psychopath par excellence described by Paul as the 'man of iniquity.' He is the son of the Evil One because he has espoused the spirit of the devil. The great philosophical and theological scholar Vladimir Soloviev describes him as a remarkable man,
 
"...many called him superhuman...He believed in God (as did Marx, Nietzsche and Teilhard de Chardin), but at the bottom of his heart (he) preferred himself to Him."  God the Father Almighty "knew that he would bow down before the powers of evil, as soon as it had corrupted him...by caressing his boundless pride." At the beginning, the superman, "had no hostility toward Jesus...but (like Mahomet) he saw in Him merely the greatest of his own predecessors." Since I have surpassed Him,  said the superman, "I am the perfect and final savior. The first Christ was my forerunner...(therefore, why should I) have to bow before Him like the most stupid of Christians...I, the bright genius, the superman! No, never!"  (Wrath of God, Livio Fanzaga, pp. 36-37, 40, emphasis added)
 
His unbounded pride, defiance, arrogant self-righteousness, self-conceit, moral relativism and contempt and hatred of brother and sister are characteristic of his perversity and the reason for his unbelief in the Holy Triune God. He in fact believes that he is God incarnate among men. He is a man of modern evolutionary scientism--- the powerful instruments of his will by which he worships himself, makes himself equal to God and holds the power of life and death in his hands.  He is a powerful seducer, so powerful in fact that even believers will be deceived if possible.
 
The Lawless One suffers the same envy of the Holy God that transformed Lucifer into a demon, the Evil One, the father of all psychopaths. The sin of Lucifer (and of Hegel, Karl Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler) was that he could not abide the idea of the Triune God's existence since he wished to become God. The Lawless One's sin ( Nietzsches) consists in being unable to tolerate the idea that Jesus Christ, a greater man than himself exists.

Spiritual sin, beginning with pride, jealousy, covetousness and resentment quickly inflating to envy, are the common bonds linking the Evil One with increasing numbers of his earthly representatives, from the Lawless One to all who have been infected with the same venom of the serpent.

In contemporary America, those who have been abandoned by God-- the ones infected by the venom of the snake-- have a virtual choke-hold on the levers of power and influence within academia, over certain cities, states and corporations, the media, science, entertainment, arts, music, Hollywood, San Francisco, the Supreme Court, lower courts, Congress, and certain seminaries and pulpits.  Thus America is passing into "a state of confusion and stupefaction" as it implodes under the explosive effects of lawless, loveless natural men in places of power and influence together with widespread moral imbecility and moral relativism throughout the general population of post-Christian America.  

Given the morally and doctrinally corrupted condition of much of the Christian Church and Christians themselves, unless we repent of our sins and ask for Gods' forgiveness and mercy, then total control of America will at some time in the future be handed by the God of Judgment into the grasping hands of lawless natural men and the present psychological bullying as a means of coercion, power and domination will be dropped in favor of American Gulags, torture and murder.

Most of what contemporary Russia has to tell us about Gulags, torture and murder can be seen in ex-atheist Solzhenitsyn.  Speaking from the fiery crucible, Solzhenitsyn warns that once the God of Revelation has been removed from men’s lives, it means the logical end ofmodern Western and American history.  In other words, totalitarian neo-pagan Communism and Gulag were not merely Russian experimentsbut rather the end of all people who remove the God of Revelation from the center of life.

Atheism said Solzhenitsyn, is based on the evil in man’s nature, and moral relativism, violence, murder and Gulag are the natural expressions of this evil.   Gulag is an essential part of atheist society as it reveals the evil of man’s nature and the folly of the modern humanist dream of earthly happiness.   

Gulag though, is at the same time a starting place for man’s spiritual rebirth, as Solzhenitsyn describes in Part II of The Gulag Archipelago:

It has granted me to carry away from my prison years on my bent back, which nearly broke beneath its load, this essential experience: how a human being becomes evil and how good.  In the intoxication of my youthful successes I had felt myself to be infallible, and I was therefore cruel.  In the surfeit of power I was a murderer, and an oppressor.  In my most evil moments I was convinced that I was doing good, and I was well supplied with systematic arguments.  And it was only wen I lay there on rotting prison straw that I sensed within myself the first strivings of good.”

Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either—but right through every human heart—and then all human hearts… And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil, one small bridgehead of good is retained.  And even in the best of all hearts there remains…..an uprooted small corner of evil.”

Slowly it was disclosed to Solzhenitsyn that suffering (Gulag/ the crucible) is the starting point of spiritual redemption:

“Bless you prison, bless you for being in my life.  For there, lying upon the rotting prison straw, I came to realize that the object of life is not prosperity as we are made to believe, but the maturity of the human soul.”   “Your soul, which formerly was dry, now ripens with suffering. And even if you haven’t come to love your neighbors in the Christian sense, you are at least learning to love those close to you.”    The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956

Suffering is the reality of the fallen human condition and for those who do not hate the God of life and other people on account of it, suffering is the beginning of true spiritual life.   Jesus Christ suffered on the Cross, and the suffering in Russia enabled those who underwent it to see this as profoundly as Solzhenitsyn.

Proverbs 30:12-- The Evil Ruling Class and its' Senseless Liberal Fan-Club

Harper-Mercer wanted to die as a mass-murderer, said Pat Buchanan. And we're going to have more of these massacres. Why? Because we rewarded Harper-Mercer for his barbarity in the currency he craved, the only currency he cared about: fame and immortality in this world:

"In a de-Christianized America where no higher law exists, killing is a commonplace occurrence, and the popular culture is polluted by raw sex and violence, what answer does society give to the Harper-Mercers who are willing to kill in large numbers to become famous? We are not the rules-based society we once were. We have junked the Christian code, embraced absolute social freedom, and dispensed with the moral sanctions."  (The Allure of Mass Murder, Patrick J. Buchanan, Oct. 9, 2015)

The real source of the evil responsible for de-Christianizing America and unleashing the devil in liberals, thereby creating a Godless culture polluted by relativism, raw sex, obscene perversions, abortion, and violence, is a criminal elite, a parasitic confederacy of occult Progressive god-men and atheist GOP elites and transnational corporatists and bankers described by Professor Angelo Codevilla as America’s Left-Right Ruling Class.   While most Americans pray to the Holy Trinity Who created all men in His spiritual image, the Ruling Class:

"...prays to themselves as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image,"  ("The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It," Codevilla, p. xix)

As god-men the evil Ruling Class naturally think decent, morally-ordered Americans are un-evolved hominids completely unfit to run their own lives, and since the Holy Trinity and morality are anathema to them the overriding concern of the Ruling Class,

"....has been to denigrate the American people's devotion to God, because the Ruling Class accepts no standard it cannot control." (ibid, p. xx)

To protect its' satanic self-conception as gods, the Ruling Class stealthily replaced the Holy Trinity with Darwinism, the Bible with scientism, orthodox priests with pseudo-priests of science such as the babbling sophist Richard Dawkins, and the First Commandment with "Thou shall worship no other God but the Ruling Class."

However, according to Holy Scripture, the Ruling Class and their Liberal fan-club are fools:

 "All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the spirit." Proverbs 16:2"The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice." Proverbs 12:15   

The Ruling Class and their mindless fan-club are of an evil generation who are pure in their own eyes, yet are not washed from their filthiness. (Prov. 30:12) Though the evil view themselves as faultless, in reality they willfully blind themselves to their own faults, suppress the truth in unrighteousness, and deceive themselves and others because their conscience is depraved, and a depraved conscience is the most destructive force in theological, political, social, economic, and cultural life. This is because though the intellect remains intact, reason is warped and peculiarly inverted, thus useless for pursuit of the good, the just, the true and the sane. In short, guided by a depraved conscience, the evil use reason in pursuit of the preservation of self-image and self-gratification at any cost. This is sophistry, or Progressive and Liberal Illogic 101.

In a penetrating analysis of sophistry, J. Budziszewski, professor of government at the University of Texas, Austin,  observes that the sophists' view of reality is paradoxical because it ultimately denies reality. Thus sophists are shock troopers of evil says Budziszewski, and according to their satanically-inverted view of reality:

"Man is the measure of all things, but man has no fixed nature. Man measures all things by his words, but words have no fixed meanings. Language is not an instrument for finding truth, but for changing it. Those who can master it, master all. It is a good creed for rogues, and commends itself to tyrants in every age." (What We Can't Not Know, Budziszewski, p. 167)

Sophistry is the evil religion not just of the depraved Ruling Class but of millions of Liberals.  Sophistry says uncreated autonomous man, an emergent product of evolution acting on chemicals, is a free-thinker, thus the maker of his own truth and morality even though life and mind cannot evolve from something on the order of rocks and sophistry denies the reality of both truth and morality.   Sophistry says depraved man can unmake and then remake himself despite that by the logic of his position he is a walking dead body that somehow speaks.  Nevertheless, the self-deluded sophist is free to divinize himself as in days of old. Moreover, males can be females and females can be males, or they can be androgynous, that is, transgender.

 Sophistry's' favorite Scripture is "judge not."  According to sophistry, the only allowable judgment is the judgment against moral judgment while the only sin is the idea that sin exists unless it is committed by "right-wing extremists."    Sophistry's only truth is the idea that truth does not exist and evil is the idea that evil really exists unless ascribed to "right-wing extremists."  The greatest evil of all however, is to dissent against the Ruling Class or hurt the feelings of Liberals.

Sophists are evil braggarts who love to boast of their reason, yet reason is actually escape from reason into irrationalism. By way of unreason, self-righteous sophists claim that God is dead and evolutionary theory is absolutely true, but sophistry says that words have no fixed meaning. There is no truth in sophistry. Therefore, God is not dead but rather evolutionary theory is a lie and sophists are walking dead bodies that spout lies and meaningless gibberish.

The sins of the evil Ruling Class and its mindless fan-club know no bounds, and through psychological abuse, lies, and scapegoating, theyvictimize all decent, law-abiding Americans, causing them to be fearful of speaking truth to lies and exercising moral judgment lest they be ridiculed and accused of phony sins such as homophobia. As a result, the Light of Truth has been all but overcome by darkness. In spiritually dark America, psychologically abused Americans wade through dank mire like moles, always seeking but never finding, for they can no longer see the Light of Truth.

An ancient malign will energizes the Ruling Class and its' liberal followers and through them great suffering and evil has been done to Americans and America. The evil have compassed us about with lies, confusion, and treachery. They have rewarded our good with evil. They have sacrificed our well-being to enact their narcissistic fantasies. In short, the evil have created a sick, twisted society that mirrors their own sick, twisted selves. And because they cannot stand the sight of their distorted mirror image (American society) they are inviting terrorists in to kill, steal and destroy and giving the left-overs away, bit by bit, to the U.N.  In short, this is Liberal and Progressive Illogic 101.

Political Correctness, Self-Absorbed Barbarians and ISIS

Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos writes that campus activists in America showed their true faces during an international tragedy last night: they are the selfish, spoiled children we always knew they were.  Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters responded to the murder of scores of people in Paris at the hands of Islamic extremists by complaining about losing the spotlight and saying their “struggles” were being “erased.” Their struggles, remember, consist of a poop swastika of unknown provenance and unsubstantiated claims of racially-charged remarks somewhere near Missouri’s campus:

"So debased has the language on American campuses become that these incidents, which many observers believe to be hoaxes, just like previous campus scandals celebrated by progressive media, are being referred to as “terrorism” and a “tragedy” by moronic 20-year-olds who have never been told, “No.”  (Breitbart, Nov. 14, 2015)

Post-Christian America is producing a generation of conscienceless narcissists---self-absorbed barbarians unfettered from morality and fueled by destructive impulses whose lack of empathy results in blindness to the humanity of both the French massacre victims and of those who are hated and envied. Dehumanization permits victims to be sacrificed without remorse on the altar of narcissism, for with the negation of humanity victims are no longer human beings but objects to be used, abused, tormented and discarded at will. This monstrous evil finds expression over and over in the writings of the sexual psychopath, the Marquis de Sade:

"The philosopher sates his appetites without inquiring to know what his enjoyments may cost others, and without remorse." (Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones, p. 26). 

We cannot understand the rising tide of tyrannical barbarism unless we return to the Biblical view of man. The "basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insight we have into the nature of man"  and no concept gives "deeper insight into the enigma that is man" than original sin. Evil is not just a "bad dream," warned Richard Weaver, author of "Ideas Have Consequences." Evil is not "an accident of history," or the "creation of a few antisocial men." It is a "subtle, protean force," and original sin is a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George Nash, p. 53)

Man is not born good, as self-deluded Progressive Leftists and Liberals of both evolutionary  atheist and mystical pantheist persuasions claim. Nor is man 'evolving' to some higher, more godlike spiritual state. The ugly, unpalatable truth is that all men are born pleasure-seeking hedonists, says Dr. Terry G. Shaw:

"To understand...principles of human behavior...we must first begin by accepting (that) all humans are born hedonists (aka narcissists) and have an intrinsic need to seek pleasure, avoid pain, and engage in those activities that best accomplish both with the least amount of effort." (Born Liberal Raised Right, Reb Bradley, p.19)

In 1926, Governor Theodore Christianson of Minnesota established the Minnesota Crime Commission to study crime and evaluate its causes. The commission eventually concluded that criminal tendencies were not the result of poverty, education, or environment. Instead, it offered the following brutal observation:

"Every baby starts life as a little savage. He is completely selfish and self-centered. He wants what he wants when he wants it: his bottle, his mother's attention, his playmates toys...or whatever. Deny him these and he seethes with rage and aggressiveness which could be murderous were he not so helpless. He's dirty; he has no morals, no knowledge, no developed skills. This means that all children, not just certain children, but all children, are born delinquent. If permitted to continue in their self-centered world of infancy, given free rein to their impulsive actions to satisfy each want, every child would grow up a criminal, a thief, a killer, a rapist." (ibid, p. 21)

The architects of our nation were men who did not shy away from the ugly truth about man's fallen condition, which meant that if the American experiment in national self-government was to succeed, then as the Founders strongly advised, all children would need to be trained against their natural self-centered inclinations from birth:

"Since private and public Vices, are in Reality...connected (it is necessary) that the Utmost Pains be taken by the Public, to have the Principle of Virtue early inculcated on the minds of...children, and the moral Sense kept alive...For no people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued when knowledge is diffused and Virtue preserved. On the contrary, when People are universally ignorant and debauched...they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign invaders." (Our Sacred Honor, Bennett, p. 26)

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin, quoted in Born Liberal Raised Right, p. 15)

"The government...can never be in danger of degenerating into a monarchy, an oligarchy, an aristocracy, or any other despotic or oppressive form so long as there shall remain any virtue in the body of the people." George Washington (ibid)

More than forty years ago, repentant ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn called upon America and the West to turn back to the transcendent Holy God . He testified to the evils he had committed and repented of, and perceptively noted that Communism and the gulag are the logical end of modern history once God the Father, Original Sin, immutable truth and universal morality have been removed from men's lives. Evil cuts through the heart of every man, noted Solzhenitsyn, and atheism is the outworking of that evil — the madness — in man's nature while the unrestrained madness, murder, and Gulag are the logical expressions of this evil. In summation, Communism — modernity's Tower of Babel — is "... a concentration of world evil, of hatred for humanity..." (Communism: A Legacy of Terror, 1976)

A tsunami of concentrated evil swept over Orthodox Russia. Historian R.J. Rummel details some of its evils:

"...communism — Marxism-Leninism and its variants — meant in practice bloody terrorism, deadly purges, lethal gulags and forced labor, fatal deportations, man-made famines, extrajudicial executions and show trials, and genocide." With this understood, "the Soviet Union appears the greatest megamurderer of all...killing near 61,000,000." (http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/POWER.ART.HTM)

The American experiment in national self-government is being buried under an avalanche of ignorance, narcissism, debauchery and tyrannical barbarism otherwise known as political correctness.  Post-Christian America has nearly lost its conscience and as it sinks under its own corrupt weight and ISIS sharpens its knives and sets up shop among us a season of bloodletting will surely occur.  This will be followed by totalitarianism unless there is instead a season of repentance and turning back to the Lord.

The Dark 'God' of New Spirituality

Western and American culture has been hijacked by a spiritual ideology that Dr. Peter Jones calls Neo-Paganism and of which John Frame in the foreword to the book ‘On Global Wizardry,’ describes as an historical and worldwide

 "…movement of enormous cultural power, one that has sought for centuries and still seeks to dominate our world." (The New Spirituality, Emerging Church and the Bride, christianspectrum.org.uk)

 New Spirituality is grounded in a one-dimensional evolutionary cosmogony and is therefore both vehemently anti-two dimensional Genesis creation account ex nihilo and orthodox Christian and faithful Jew.  It holds that each world religion of nature shares a single universal truth---that the divine energy or consciousness (One Substance or Mind) has manifested itself through many deities in different places and at different times.  Thus no one deity can express the totality of the divine energy or consciousness.  This is called polytheism.

 New Spirituality has six other core beliefs:

1.   The divine energy or consciousness is present in nature and in each one of us.  This is called pantheism - the divine is everywhere.

2.  The divine energy is represented by both female and male energies.  These two major aspects of the divine are the goddess and god, although the divine, being beyond limitations of gender, is androgynous.

 3.   The 'Pagan Ethic' (also called the Wiccan Rede) is followed: If it harm none, do what you will.  This means a pagan cannot cause harm to anyone or anything, including themselves.

 4. Every person is god because they are aspects of the divine consciousness

 5. The purpose of life is overcoming "self." To new spiritualists from some Buddhist and Hindu traditions the "self" must be merged (lost) in the Divine Energy or Consciousness

 6.  Forecasting a pending, and for them a highly desirable "selection" of mankind in which the progressives enter the New Age millennium and the reactionaries face extinction. For the New Spirituality Apostles of "progressive" Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution."  (False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, Lee Penn, p. 7)

 This "new" yet very ancient spirituality is a syncretic stew consisting of elements of Mystery Religion Babylon, Kabbalah, Egyptian Hermetic magic, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnostic paganism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Luciferian Theosophy, Wicca and progressive evolutionary Christianity united by a determined commitment to moral relativism and tolerance that paves the way for a one world religion. John Frame comments:

"These movements are parallel to one another, even congruent.  So they form a single movement in effect.  They work together, drawing on one another for support and inspiration, affirming one another, while they unite in opposing biblical Christianity." (ibid)

 In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called the New Age or new Spirituality Bible, Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) concurs and enthusiastically reports that a great, shuddering irrevocable shift in consciousness is overtaking us,

"It is a new mind, a turnabout in consciousness in critical numbers of individuals, a network powerful enough to bring about radical change in our culture.   This network....has already enlisted the minds, hearts and resources of some of our most advanced thinkers, including Nobel laureate scientists, philosophers, statesmen, celebrities....who are working to create a different kind of society...The technologies for expanding and transforming personal consciousness, once the secret of an elite, are now generating massive change in every cultural institution---medicine, politics, business, education, religion and the family."   (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 34)

 Ferguson lists a number of  consciousness altering techniques:
 
".....Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Focusing, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control..."  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, p. 43)

 Among other techniques for getting in touch with the "Christ consciousness" inner “Light,”  the "Force," "Mind of the Universe" and seething energy of Lucifer or the angel (Lucifer) are strenuous physical exercises, special diets (especially vegetarianism), Kundalini yoga, brain-altering drugs, trance music, mind science, chanting, psychodrama, consciousness-raising strategies, hypnosis and self-hypnosis, body disciplines and therapies such as hatha yoga and aikido as well as sensitivity groups and encounter groups, Zen, Tibetan Buddhism and transcendental meditation and yoga. 

The altered state of consciousness by which a man supposedly enters into communion with the "Mind of the Universe" with the help of spirit guides is called "opening of the senses" in Scripture:

"Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way with his drawn sword in his hand."  (Numbers 22:31, also see 2 Kings 6:17; Luke 24:16-31)  

Hypnotic trance-states are linked to ancient pagan religious practices and eastern mystical experiences that are essential to such practices as out-of-body experiences, astral projection, and Yoga. Historically, hypnosis has been an integral part of world pagan religious practices and pantheist systems stretching back to the mother of all such systems: Babylon.  

In ’Recognitions’ church father Clement records an evil deed committed by the Gnostic pagan magician Simon that bears a striking resemblance to the effects of modern altered state of consciousness techniques.   Clement reports that Simon had begun to commit murder by inducing a child to experience an out of body situation.  By way of mesmerizing,

"...abominable incantations he separated the soul of a child from its own body that it might become his assistant for the production of whatever apparition he might require.  And he drew a likeness of the boy, and keeps it set up in the inner chamber where he sleeps, affirming that he...formed him of air by transformations such as the gods cause..." (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, p. 181)

In his interpretation of this dark passage, G.H. Pember concluded,

 "...by mesmerism Simon had drawn out the spirit of the boy into a higher...state, and then omitted to recall it, so that the spirit had finally separated from the body; and that he had done this for the purpose of procuring a (spirit) familiar....Simon....denied the murder of the boy by asserting that he had merely resolved a spirit-form which he had himself produced." (Earth's Earliest Ages, p. 182)

 In his 'Apology' church father Tertullian writes that if magicians can produce apparitions, bring into evil repute the spirits of men who are dead,

 "....mesmerize boys to obtain an oracular response...perform many wonders...by their conjuring illusions; send dreams by the aiding power of angels and demons whom they have...summoned to their assistance; through whose influence also goats and tables have been made to divine; how much more will that Satanic power be zealous to do with all its strength, of its own will, and for its own purposes, that which it does to serve the ends of others." (Pember, pp. 184-185)

Since during trance states demons can interfere with and even possess the passive or empty mind, meditation therefore serves as an open doorway into the realm of evil spirits and dangerous demonic deceptions.

In a synthetic way, hallucinogenic drugs also assist users to experience an altered state of consciousness. There are as well certain types of music, such as trance and heavy metal that enhance and in many cases produce in the mind and spirit of the listener an altered state, hence spiritual transformation. In secularized Westerners and unwary Christians alike, altered states by whatever means eventually end in altered world view.

 As it was in the days of Noah

As Ferguson admits, the hypnotic-technologies being taught over and across our culture were once the private domain of ancient magicians and sorcerers.   In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many new spirituality historians claim their traditions originated in pre-flood Atlantis (during the time of Noah) and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon,

 "...and surrounding Plains of Shinar and from there disseminated throughout the earth, including Taoist doctrines of China, Mayan-Aztec teachings of Mexico and Central/South America; Great Spirit teachings of the American Indians, Hindu/Buddhist teachings of Asia, etc." (pp. 250-251)

In affirmation, Church Father Clement writes:

 "Fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man.  After the flood Ham the son of Noah unhappily 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)

 The Tower of Babel was Babylon's founding edifice and spiritual center, observes Brooks Alexander, Research Director for Spiritual Counterfeits Project.  Brooks describes the Tower as an astral temple or gate-way into the dimension of spirits and the Divine Energy.  It therefore represented the structure of the one-dimensional universe:
 
" As the 'cosmic mountain' it tied heaven and earth together.  It was the all-inclusive image of the totality of the universe." (The Big Lie, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, 2005, Tal Brooke, p. 11)
 
The magical meaning of the Tower is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the universe or macrocosm's correlation with the microcosm, "as above, so below" symbolized by the Ouroboros – the serpent-powered cosmic tree of life symbolized by a snake biting its tail.  "Below" corresponds to the earth, initiate (aspiring god man), and Tower and 'above' to a number of different astral planes and sub-planes comprising the habitations,

"(of all) supernatural entities, the locale of gods and demons, the void where the thought forms dwell, the region inhabited by spirits of the air and other elements, and the various heavens and hells with their angelic and demonic hosts....With the help of ritual procedures, trained persons believe that they can 'rise on the planes,' and experience these regions in full awareness." ("Beyond the Body: The Human Double and the Astral Planes, Benjamin Walker, 1974, pp. 117-8)

From the time of Nimrod to our own, the serpent-energized Ouroboros with its astral planes has been well-known around the world in its' many esoteric (occult secret) traditions:

"References to this reality are the Dreaming of the Australian Aborigines, the Spirit-world of Shamanism, the Duart of the ancient Egyptians, the Bardo (Intermediate State) of the Tibetans, the Imaginal world of Islamic Esotericism – e.g. the Barzakh (Interworld) or of Suhrawardi and the Mithal (Imaginal realm) of Ibn Arabi – the Universe of Asiyah of some Kabbalists, or of Yetzirah according to others. Other descriptions are the Nervo degree of the Physical State of Theon, the Astral or 2nd Prakritic plane (corresponding to the Linga Sharira or Subtle or Astral body) and the Kama (Desire-Plane) of Blavatsky, the Astral Plane of the Adyar school of Theosophy and of popular occultism, Rudolf Steiner's "Soul World"; and the Vital and Subtle Physical described by Sri Aurobindo and Mirra. These are just a few of the innumerable descriptions of this plane of existence." (The Astral Plane, kheper.net)
 
Brooks adds that in the ritual act of ascending the astral altar,

 "…. the priests acted out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos.  The Babylonian monarch was the focus of the occult power channeled through the activities of the priesthood.  He was regarded as a divine being, a god-man."  (ibid, The Big Lie, p. 10)    
 
 In other words, with the help of spirit guides (fallen angels and demons), psycho-technologies and other occult rituals, initiates believed they could spiritually progress or evolve up the astral planes to visit the realm of the gods and become the mouth-pieces for the gods and goddesses.  
 
According to occult lore, at the final level of initiation spirit entities (demons) fully possess the body of the monarch to replace his spirit. This means that the spirit of the monarch is no longer in residence as a 'new' spirit totally possesses and animates the monarch's body.  This is why the monarch thereafter was regarded as a divine being, a god-man.
 
Upon possession of the monarch's body, the spirit exudes a powerful mesmerizing influence that draws most of the community into it’s' sphere of influence and domination resulting in communal possession.  
 
Possession takes two forms, communal and individual.  Communal or collective possession is,

"...strongly institutionalized, and ritualistically induced, but peripheral possession is more normally individual and spontaneous." (Demonic Possession: A Medical, Historical, Anthropological, and Theological Symposium, John Warwick Montgomery (ed.), Bethany, 1976)

 Possession and Other Dangers of Mind-Altering Techniques

 According to a 1987 New York Times article, psychologists who have studied mind-altering techniques said that while participants are in this 'altered state' group-leaders are able to implant new ideas and alter thinking processes:
 
"Gurus hired to motivate workers are raising fears of 'mind control." (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt, McMahon)
 
This charge is so grave and frightening that former University of Wisconsin psychology faculty member Edwin Morse warns that graduates of New Age courses being required for employees of many businesses are often "psychologically scarred."  Now in private practice and specializing in helping such people, Dr. Morse declares:
 
"These (mind-altering) groups are using hypnotic procedures and people are not being told about it." (Dave Hunt, p. 42)
 
Richard L. Waring of Budget Rent-a-Car Corporation asserts that mind-altering techniques induce a trance-like state and adds that many participants are convinced that they have come

under harmful, frightening influence from spirit entities as a result.  Arguing that people exposed by employers to,

  "New Age psycho-technologies (for) altering normal consciousness....ought to be told up front" that inevitably their "fundamental worldviews and Judeo-Christian religious beliefs' are being tampered with.  

 Waring adds,

 "For about the last three years, I have observed the introduction and growth of a new philosophy of human potential and development (most often referred to) as the 'New Age' movement... I began noticing a number of consultants and corporate Human Resources Development practitioners who were promoting 'higher creativity,' 'improved memory,' 'accelerated learning,' 'stress management.'  I found that most of these methods were somewhere on Ferguson's list of 'means to altering consciousness'(and) I began to wonder about the motives of the persons selling these concepts. Were they really out to improve human potential? Or had they had some profound experience on their spiritual journey and were really enlisting others to follow their path?" (ibid, pp. 42-43)

 In our schools children are being taught the ancient occult art of "centering," a psycho-technique that opens up their minds to the influence of demons.  In his book, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom," Allen Quist warns:

 "New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation's public schools." A model curriculum has been developed that "is clearly centered on pantheism." "Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology. The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination). It is only Christianity that these organizations object to." (p. 51)

Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, has also been following the explosive growth of occult New Age spirituality. In a work entitled, "Teachers, Preachers and Greens: The Unholy Alliance to Transform America," DeWeese reveals the existence of a well-funded yet covert effort to alter the consciousness of American society through an aggressive assault on schools and churches.  He reveals that the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City is one of the initiating centers of the assault and the home of the enormously influential occult spiritual Gaia Institute as well as the Temple of Understanding — a politically influential U.N. Non-Governmental Organization. DeWeese describes a pagan "church service" at St. John the Divine:

"As the congregation sit in their church pews in the great Cathedral of St. John, the Divine in New York City, the priest stands at the altar, ready to receive a procession of animals for the annual Feast of Saint Francis blessing. Down the aisle comes a procession of elephants, camels, donkeys, monkeys and birds. These are followed by members of the congregation carrying bowls of compost and worms. Next, to the sounds of music come acrobats and jugglers. In the pulpit, former Vice President Al Gore delivers a sermon, saying, "God is not separate from the Earth." (federalobserver.com)

So-called 'extraterrestrials' are also at work.   In "Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection," Gary Bates reports that the abduction phenomenon is occurring all over the world, including Third World countries. 

  UFO researcher Jacques Vallee concurs and notes that the abductee's perceptions of reality (consciousness) are being profoundly altered and adds that the structure of abduction stories is identical to occult rituals:
 
"...contact with ufonauts (is) a modern extension of contact with non-human consciousness in the form of angels, demons, elves, and sylphs....Such contact...often leaves marks and scars on the body and the mind..."   (p. 230)
 
 UFO research-scientist John Keel also likens modern alien abductions to contact with the demonic:

 "Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology.  It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have...coexisted with man throughout history....The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not identical, to the UFO phenomenon.  Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees..."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 260)
 
After considerable research, Bates connects psycho-techniques utilized by ‘ETs” to hypnosis.  So-called 'aliens' use hypnotic methods to enter into the subconscious mind to plant subliminal messages and alter thought processes to embrace the concept of naturalistic evolution which negates the Genesis account. (Bates, p. 262)

Globalized New Spirituality

The Book of Genesis informs us that before the great flood the antediluvian world was in a frenzy of wickedness, no doubt aided and abetted by the Watchers.   God's wrath fell upon that world while a remnant was preserved in the ark.   But scarcely had the waters receded when Ham rediscovered and resurrected the teachings of the Watchers from the antediluvian world.  Utilizing these teachings, Nimrod turned the people away from the worship of God and revived the necessary elements of Mystery Religion Atlantis to establish his own post-flood version. 

 While Mystery Religion Babylon is the post-flood root of all mystery religions, in its' final version, communal and individual possession will become a global phenomenon as untold millions of people ritualistically act out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos:

".....I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe.  Thereby, too, my deepest 'pantheist' aspirations. It was especially the image of God which Teilhard saw in need of urgent redefinition. Modern man has not yet found the God he can adore, A God commensurate to the newly discovered dimensions of the universe." (Towards a New Mysticism, Teilhard de Chardin and Eastern Religions, Ursula King, p. 172

 “Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the ‘divine,’ it’s transcendence into ever higher forms of life.  Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine.  This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity.  Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...” (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)   

 As they spiritually rise on the astral planes who is the god they will become "one" with? 

 New spirituality relies heavily on the spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Of these it is Blavatsky who reveals this closely guarded secret.   

 Blavatsky founded the Theosophical Society to promote occult doctrine, religious philosophy and wisdom tradition.  Theosophy holds that all pagan religions are attempts by the Occult Brotherhood (fallen angels) to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that each pagan religion therefore has a portion of the truth.  These teachings, which Blavatsky called ‘The Ageless Wisdom’, had previously only been available to Secret Societies from the time of Babylon and Atlantis, but she obtained them from the Brotherhood during her travels to Egypt and India. (ibid, christianspectrum)

 In her book, ‘The Secret Doctrine,’ Blavatsky reveals the name of the "god" of New Spirituality:

 "Satan and his rebellious host will thus prove to have become the direct Saviours and Creators of divine man . . . It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God.  Satan (or Lucifer) represents the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, this ever-living symbol of self-sacrifice for the intellectual independence of humanity.    

 In volume II of “The Secret Doctrine” she said:

 "….it is but natural…to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: “in the day ye eat thereof, ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil” – can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour….”  (Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243)

 “And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” (brimstone was a theological improvement), and Lucifer, or “Light Bearer,” is in us: It is our Mind – our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism. Without this principle… we would be surely no better than animals” (ibid)

Now it becomes clear why leading new spirituality adepts speak of the necessity of the Luciferian initiation for all who wish to enter the coming utopian millennium.

 Revelation reports that at some point the whole world will become drunk on the wine of Babylon, its' deluded celebrants convinced of their own deity when in reality they've received the mark of Satan. 

 The clearest answer to the apocalyptic atmosphere of our time is found in the Bible.  We are living in the Last Days.  History is winding down and Satan is mobilizing his forces for a final all-out assault--- which we are already experiencing (1 Tim. 4:1 and 2; Tim. 3:1-4) The demonic realm is brazenly interacting with our own realm, and it is in this light that we can understand the growing epidemic of madness, extremism, paranoia, suicide, apathy, apostasy, lawlessness, and hatred appearing on every side. 

 We are living in the days of a demonic nature, said Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987).  For over fifty years Dr. Koch's name has been synonymous with authoritative and biblical insights and help for all who desire to understand or escape from the mesmerizing influence of the occult and demonic world.  According to Koch, civilization is marching toward its own destruction and if we fail therefore to take our stand at the foot of the cross,

 "... fail to build our house upon the Rock, (we will) be swept away by the turmoil of the End-times."  (Demonology Past and Present, Koch, p. 37)

Revelation 2:7

In "Papacy in Collapse: "The Crisis of the Bergoglio Party (which will leave the Church devastated) has begun" published on Rorate Caeli we read:

"It’s beginning to look as if Jorge Bergoglio is the man who inherited the papacy and then broke it (Bergoglio) has caused the Church to collapse into doctrinal confusion which is much, more serious than any financial scandal. Is it the fault of obscure opponents? Nonsense. Only in dictatorships are the failures of the regime justified with presumed sabotages from its opponents. The Argentine Pope has said many times that he wanted chaos as he considered it creative: he should be pleased now." (rorate-caeli.blogspot, 2015/11)

Years ago, long-time Vatican observer Malachi Martin (1921-1999) described a situation in which the Curia is divided between 'progressive' (evolutionary pantheists) and 'traditionalists;' between adherents of chaos and evolutionary conceptions such as Teilhard de Chardin's Hermetic, quasi-Hindu idea, abortion, women and 'gay' priests, and openness to non-Christian nature religions and philosophies and those who oppose such an agenda. According to Martin, 'progressives' hold all the important positions of power, and so are able to bring about a major revolution that if unchecked will constitute,

"....one of the most spectacular expressions of apostasy in the modern era, dressed up in all the traditional robes and much of the terminology of Christianity but denying its essence." (Jesus and the Den of Thieves, SCP Journal, Jones, p. 17)

Chaos, confusion and devastating crisis of faith are not unique to the Roman Catholic Church.  Like a toxic virus it infects the entire denominational spectrum of Christ's Church.  

Though written for a Roman Catholic audience, James Hitchcock's powerful analytical piece "Off The Rails: Was Vatican II Hijacked?" contains much that parallels the crisis of faith and spread of apostasy within the body of the Evangelical church. (Crisis Magazine, June, 2014)

For instance, among unworkable church-growth tactics employed by the Roman Catholic Church said Hitchcock, is the strategy of countering secularism by accommodating the Church to the secular culture.  Since much of the Evangelical church employs the very same strategy, the devilish spirit of apostasy has for many years been entering through the open door of accommodation. Decades ago Francis Schaeffer perceived this devilish spirit already at work amongst evangelical Protestants. In "The Great Evangelical Disaster" he wrote:

"Accommodation, accommodation. How the mindset of accommodation grows and expands...For the evangelical accommodation to the world of our age represents the removal of the last barrier against the breakdown of our culture. And with the final removal of this barrier will come social chaos and the rise of authoritarianism in some form to restore order." (p. 401)

Schaeffer rebuked evangelical compromisers, warning them that to accommodate,

"...to the world spirit about us in our age is the most gross form of worldliness in the proper definition of the word." (ibid)

By the logic of accommodation, promoters inevitably end up negating the right of the Christian Church to remain faithful to its authentic identity, and this ends in "a moral obligation to repudiate as much of that identity as possible" (Hitchcock).

The dogged pursuit of this scheme eventually forces older saints out of the church in favor of younger, culturally-saturated, spiritually and morally immature members. These actions give birth to a Christless Christianity,

"a crude form of democracy---doctrine as determined by opinion polls. The liturgy (ceases) to be a divine action and (becomes) a communal celebration... with every moral absolute treated as merely another wall needing to be breached" (resulting in a demand) "for liberation from all restraint on personal freedom." (Hitchcock)

As a consequence:

" the theological frontier is nothing less than the stark question of whether there is indeed only one God and Jesus is His only-begotten Son." (ibid)

In agreement, Dr. R. Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, describes our age as marked by so much spiritual and theological confusion that the God of the Bible has largely disappeared from view and been replaced by,

"...less imposing deities that are more amenable to the modern mind." (The Disappearance of God, Mohler, p. xiii)

We are witnessing the secularization, paganization and evaporation of orthodox Biblical theism to which must be added rebellion against every vestige of authority, an inversion of history caused by evolutionary thinking, the privatization of truth and,

".....the fact that millions of Americans claim a divine right to their own spiritual cocoon and belief system." Americans, "now lay claim to their 'own personal Jesus.' This personal vision of Jesus Christ may well bear little or no resemblance to Jesus as He is revealed in the Bible." (xiii)

One of the central realities of America's apostasy and moral decay is the dawning of a post-Christian culture now rapidly transitioning into an anti-orthodox Christian society.

The anti-orthodox Christian consciousness is now well developed. Tolerance has been perverted into a radical secularism that is wholly open to 'gay' marriage and sodomy, abortion as legalized 'choice,' perverse sex education for children, occult practices, Satanism, sorcery, Wicca, magic, nudity, pornography and Decadence Festivals but intolerant of God's Authority, Moral Law and sexual ethics. 

The post-Christian mind is closed to the eternally unchanging higher truths of the Holy Trinity but completely open to the idea that truth has no objective or absolute basis whatsoever. Indeed, the postmodern mind has a fanatical dedication to moral relativism (nihilism), love of self, pleasure, and its own personal Jesus idols and gods, be they evolution-gods, science-gods, mystical passion-gods, Omegas, gods-of-reason or something else.

We are living in an age of deep and undeniable breakdown, an age of darkness and spreading evil where moral constraints and restraints have been thrown off in the name of a liberation that does not emancipate but enslaves, does not save but condemns. Our increasingly bizarre age is marked by a fundamental failure of conviction in unison with deepening corruption and lawlessness characterized by pathological lying, hard-edged egotism and warped, distorted personalities; but then Scripture has told us that sinners love darkness rather than the light.

Something is happening to the consciousness of this age. A counter-conversion of consciousness is closing the soul to Jesus Christ while opening it to powers of darkness. If we listen closely said Albert Mohler, we can hear something,

"....like the closing of a steel door – a solemn, cataclysmic slamming of a door." (p. 166)

But for all who have ears to hear, "let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God."  Revelation 2:7

Man-Hating Feminism's Just Deserts

In "Political Correctness Trumps Feminism," Dr. Peter Jones observes that nowhere does politically-correct speech grate more on the nerves of people’s sensibilities than in the socially-volatile conflict over sexuality. Even the once sacrosanct politically-correct feminist opponents of the traditional family and anything patriarchal are becoming victims of the new PC speech police as is the case with feminist icon Germaine Greer.

Author and '60s radical feminist Germaine Greer has come under fire after telling the BBC that transgender "women," such as Bruce Jenner, are not women and that they don't "look like, sound like, or behave like women.”    Greer was responding to a petition that is being passed around by leftist activists demanding that Cardiff University cancel a lecture by Greer scheduled for November 18 because of her history of making statements questioning transgenderism. The petition against Greer states that she,

 "has demonstrated time and time again her misogynistic views towards trans women, including continually misgendering trans women and denying the existence of transphobia altogether.”(Feminist icon: Transgender ‘women’ like Bruce Jenner aren’t women. They’re delusional." Fr. John Hodges & John Jalsevac, Life Site News, Oct 27, 2015 )

When Greer's comments provoked a backlash, she responded in a strongly worded statement, saying that simply because a man gets his genitals removed and wears a dress doesn't make him a woman:

 "I’ve asked my doctor to give me long ears and liver spots and I’m going to wear a brown coat but that won’t turn me into a fu**ing cocker spaniel."

Greer says many women – including strong feminists – agree with her, but it is now politically correct to propagate the lie that transgenders are whatever sex they imagine themselves to be:

 "Nowadays we are all likely to meet people who think they are women, have women's names, and feminine clothes and lots of eyeshadow, who seem to us to be some kind of ghastly parody, though it isn't polite to say so.."

Feminism's Just Deserts

Feminists for the most part are shrill, self-absorbed, God-and-man-hating emotional tyrants who for too many years have been destroying the West's traditional family and Christian-based culture.  In their destructive rage they've been trying to feminize Jesus Christ, dumb-down and transform our universities into sex temples, and tyrannize and punish men and boys.  Oddly enough, though they are the chief force behind abortion they have nevertheless spawned something more evil than themselves--a politically correct, trans-sexual Frankenstein.   Now the raging, ghastly monster has turned upon them and being more evil than what spawned it has begun to ferociously tyrannize, terrorize and cannibalize its' own 'mother.'   And this is feminism's just deserts, which means to receive what one deserves.

America's Murderous Aztecs: Idolatry and Human Sacrifice

America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of mankind, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, "I am the Lord your God...I am the Truth..." and "in His own image He made them, male and female He made them.....I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..."   Our Constitutional rights, beginning with the most important one, the right to life, flows from this seedbed, and because human beings are in the spiritual image of the Lord, throughout Christianized Western civilization there exist strict prohibitions against cannibalism and human sacrifice.

The pagan world however, has never shared Western sensibilities. Throughout history in many parts of the world, groups of people have performed unimaginably cruel human sacrifices as a way of pleasing or appeasing their 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 Maya 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 sounds, the Maya were amateurs 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 stones, boulders really, 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)

America's Bloody Mayans

"And this is the condemnation that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."  John 3:19

So-called "scientifically enlightened" Western and American civilization is not ascending to higher and higher heights of perfection but rather plunging into chaotic darkness because wicked, rebellious, evil-minded men and women, having turned away from the Light, have fallen into nature worship. Throughout post-Christian America a new Gnostic evolutionary paganism has displaced the Holy Triune God, our founding Biblical worldview, immutable truth, Moral Law, and everything good and natural. Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' it declares that the Biblical God is scientifically-passé and that now every human is god or goddess and his/her/its own morals-and gender maker.  
 
 Millions of human-deities, each with their own personal truths and moralities, and multiple and ever evolving 'genders'---this is pagan polytheism issuing in idolatry and the return of human sacrifice and cannibalization of body parts on altars of idolatrous self-worshippers:

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. When negotiating about fetal tissue, 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)

This week's release of the latest 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 Planned Parenthood, in order to send fresh specimens to researchers,

"... 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)

While America's modern Aztecs 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 sacrifice 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, torn apart and crushed.  However, they magically transform into 'human' when their lungs, hearts, heads, and other body parts are coveted by well-funded cannibals for research purposes.

When Philadelphia police officers raided Gosnell's abortuary they were stunned by what they saw.  Dismembered baby parts were everywhere: in milk jugs, bags, cat food cartons, and in the refrigerator next to staff lunches. In the freezer they was a fully intact 19-week-old aborted child and in the basement they found a collection of severed babies feet, lined up in jars.  

From the videos we have learned that the standard operating procedure for Planned Parenthood Aztecs is similar to Kermit Gosnell's standard operating procedure.  Like Planned Parenthood, Gosnell regularly delivered babies and then murdered them.  Gosnell murdered them by snipping their spinal cord.  Between his procedure and Planned Parenthood's the only difference  is method.   Gosnell was ultimately charged with eight counts of murder.  One for a patient, the other seven for delivering and then murdering babies.

 Kermit Gosnell's murder of newborn babies is sadistic and evil.  But Planned Parenthood's financially lucrative murder of living babies for their brains, hearts and other parts is Constitutional and therefore perfectly legal, according to assorted self-centered, morally relative GOP jellies like Kasich and the legion of self-absorbed conscienceless monsters who currently control America's levers of power.  

What our idolatrous (self-centered), morally relative, evil-minded paganized culture and culturally relevant, morally relative church has forgotten is that whoever keeps our Lord's commandments loves Him (John 14:21) while the reverse is true for those who do not:

"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 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)

Murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb "it is not lawful to destroy," therefore, said Russell Moore, “It is time for the reborn to stand up for the unborn.”   The reborn are to:

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute” (Proverbs 31:8)

Idolatry and Human Sacrifice

The beginning of idolatry is pride (self-centeredness), which together with selfishness demonstrates preference for one's self instead of the Lord, neighbor and unwanted babies, and 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.

The Cross is a messenger of mankind's idolatry and murderous intentions. Therefore we are obliged to search ourselves for every bit of idolatrous self-centeredness and repent of them because,

"Look, I am coming soon! Says the Lord. My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have 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, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star." (Rev. 22:12-16)

In Progressive "Bizarro" America You May Be A Right-Wing Extremist If....

David Kupelians' latest best-seller, "The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture," chronicles the decline and fall of America and shows that it was deliberately orchestrated by progressives.  Compared with the decent, morally ordered, child and family-friendly nation it once was, today's progressive dominated America is a different country altogether said Kupelian:

"(it is) deeply and angrily divided, unable to deal with crises foreign or domestic, the world's greatest debtor nation with 50 million people on food stamps, rampant divorce and family breakdown, unprecedented sexual anarchy with 110 million with STDs, almost 60 million abusing alcohol, and over 70 million taking mood-altering drugs.  On so many levels, America is becoming ever more "bizarre"---diametrically opposed to logic and common sense.  Although America's bizarro transformation has been in progress for decades, it burst into full bloom in the age of Obama. " (p. 10)

Here's how retired Marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North describes bizarro America, where according to the U.S. government North is an an extremist because:

" I am a Christian and meet regularly with other Christians to study Gods word.  My faith convinces me the prophecies in the Holy Bible are true. I believe in the sanctity of life, oppose abortion and want to preserve marriage as the union of a man and woman.  I am a veteran with skills and knowledge from military training and combat.  I own several firearms, frequently shoot them, buy ammunition and consider efforts to infringe on my Second Amendment rights to be wrong and unconstitutional. I frequently support the sovereignty of the United States, am deeply concerned about our economy, increasingly higher taxes, illegal immigration, soaring unemployment and actions by our government that will bury my children beneath a mountain of debt.  Apparently, all this makes me a 'right-wing extremist.'  At least that's what it says in the April 7, 2009 'assessment' issued by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security."  (ibid, pp. 14-15)

So just what is progressivism and/or liberalism and leftism?   In a succinct definition actor Jon Voight said,

"Progressive' is Very Devious Term--Created as Substitute for 'Communist"

Having rejected the Holy Trinity and the religious heritage of our civilization, progressives embrace instead a new order of beliefs of which Communism and Socialism are logical expressions.  A new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the existing culture must be completely destroyed.

And what is Communism?  Using the former Soviet Union as an example, early Conservative intellectual Frank Meyers describes it as, "The state form taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world."    Communism or scientific materialism is "the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  It is materialist scientism, of which,

"Communism is the culminating hubris of the Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation.  It is scientism gone political." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

Progressivism is evolutionary scientism, a revamped and revised nature religion that like all such religions past and present,

"changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."  Romans 1:25

Progressivism zealously promotes evolutionary scientism as a sacred secular (atheist) religion, as Michael Ruse, professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada makes clear:

"(Evolutionary scientism is a) full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint – and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it – 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, creation.com)

 For progressives and like-minded travelers, evolution is an anti-creation religion, a "full-fledged alternative to Christianity." It is promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with fallen angels, astral plane travels, and Illuminism, an occult nature mystery religion that teaches that man,

"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)

The goal of Illuminism is imposition of a worldwide totalitarian occult pagan state. During the 20th century Illuminism took the form of scientific socialism and scientific communism. Today it is 'green' spiritually pagan Technocracy, a scientific dictatorship calling for the radical transformation of traditional Western economics, government, law, energy, orthodox Christianity, and humanity, which is why it maliciously fosters the atheism, amorality, envy, chaos, blood-letting and revolution necessary for the undermining and overthrow of already existing governments. (Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, Patrick M. Wood)

Illuminist Inspired Communism

In the heart of Christendom during the time of the Renaissance the "alternative religion" originally took the form of occult pantheist humanism bespeaking evolution of divine spark or spirit to higher and higher states of god-consciousness. Later on another form arose: evolutionary secular (materialist) humanism. While the former was blatantly occult and spiritually pagan, the latter was essentially a de-spiritualized but nevertheless arcane version of the former falsely presenting itself as demonstrable empirical science to masses of hopeless people:

"Reason had died sometime before 1865.... After the Age of Reason came the Age of the Irrational...." Bereft of assurances of immortality after so great an attack on biblical revelation masses of hopeless people were, "begging for a revelation which was scientifically demonstrable."    (The Occult Underground, James Webb)

Karl Marx's Illuminist-inspired messianic Communism was advertised as the longed-for "scientifically demonstrable" revelation. However, Marx's "scientifically demonstrable" dialectical-materialism (revitalized pagan animism) is merely a de-spiritualized version of Hegel's occult pantheist dialectic system. Master-magician G.W.F. Hegel was an important member of the occult intelligentsia. He closely studied ancient wisdom traditions including Egyptian Hermetic magic and Babylonian Kabala as well as mesmerism, psychic phenomena, dowsing, precognition, and sorcery. He professed belief in a pantheistic Earth Spirit, and informally aligned himself with Hermetic societies, anti-Christian God Freemasons, and the pantheist Rosicrucian's. (Hegel and the Hermetic Tradition, Glenn Alexander Magee, 2001)

Enrico Ferri (1856-1926) provides an example of occult magic science (pagan animism) parading as empirical science. A prominent socialist of his day and an Italian criminologist who for many years was the editor of Avanti, a socialist daily, Ferri wrote of the animated (evolving) divine miracle-producing energies substituted for miracles and divinity in "Socialism and Religious Beliefs." Ferri confessed:

"....modern positive science...has substituted the conception of natural causality for the conception of miracles and divinity....I add that not only is Darwinism not contrary to socialism, but that it forms one of its fundamental scientific premises. As Virchow justly remarked, socialism is nothing else than the logical and vital outcome partly of Darwinism and partly of Spencerian evolution." (Marxists.org)

In another example of occult pagan magic science disguised as empirical science, Gustav Wetter expounds on the magical 'mental' and 'divine' properties animating and informing nonliving matter and dialectic:

"...matter itself continually attains to higher perfection under its own power, thanks to indwelling dialectic...the dialectical materialists attribution of 'dialectic' to matter confers on it, not mental attributes only, but even divine ones." (Dialectical Materialism, Gustav A. Wetter, 1977, p. 58)

"Bizarro" Progressivism

John Taylor Gatto, former New York State and New York City Teacher of the Year, meticulously tracked the rise of America's destructive progressive intelligentsia together with the potent interconnected shadow-government they have created to radically reshape the Western and American consciousness.  In his book, "The Underground History of American Education" Gatto points to the progressive Fabian socialist utopians as one of the most powerfully effective revolutionary 'change-making' organizations and notes that,

"...it would not be too far out of line to call the twentieth century the Fabian century." (Gatto, p. 178)

What 'scientific' secular-atheists aspired to be in completely reordering Christian-based Western society and the souls of men, 20th century Fabians actually were. Much if not most of the madness, apostasy, wild sexual anarchy, chaos and all else that has gone so horribly wrong here in America is attributable to the Fabians.

The first Fabians had almost all been lapsed Anglicans from Evangelical homes who became dignitaries in the Church of England:

"There was a Christian fringe to the London socialism of the eighties, but this too was Anglican. The Christian Socialists came together in Stewart Headlam's Guild of St. Matthew and the Land Reform Union; and the more respectable Christian Social Union, formed in 1889 – seeking in Fabian style to permeate the Anglican Church – soon attracted more than two thousand clerical members. Dissenting clergymen too began to find a place in the Fabian Society and the London Progressives, while Unitarian churches and centres like Stanton Coit's Ethical Church provided a meeting place for believers and idealist agnostics...Socialism was for all of them, the new Evangelism." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, p. 18)

The failure of Anglican hierarchy to repudiate apostatizing Biblical critics and radical freethinkers scandalized faithful, orthodox Evangelicals whose outraged response was considered reactionary by the intellectually arrogant scholarly community. In 1861, Benjamin Jowett and six liberal Churchmen published a volume entitled Essays and Reviews in which they expressed alarm lest,

"...the majority of Churchmen, by holding fast the narrow, fundamental beliefs, should estrange themselves more and more from contemporary thought." (The Founders of Psychical Research, Alan Gauld, p. 49)

Jowett himself held that, "Scripture must be interpreted like any other book..."

The portents of apostasy in the Church of England were ominous:

"It seemed to conservative Christians quite appalling that at a time when the impregnable rock of Holy Scripture was being undermined by Darwin and his allies, a group of those whose sacred duty should have been to shore it up again had conspired to hammer their wedges not under it but into it." (Gauld, p. 50)

Gauld records the rapid decline in faith among younger Cambridge men:

"Skepticism based on science flowed into and reinforced the older stream of doubt stemming from historical and ethical considerations. Their joint effect may be traced in the fact that whilst the outstanding Cambridge men of the 1840's...all took Orders (three of them becoming great clerical headmasters and six bishops), the outstanding Cambridge intellectuals of the 1870's – the Trinity group centring on Henry Sidgwick and Henry Jackson and including Frederic Myers, G. W. and A. J. Balfour, Walter Leaf, Edmund Gurney, Arthur Verrall, F. W. Maitland, Henry Butcher and George Prothero – tended towards agnosticism or hesitant Deism." (Gauld, p. 64)

In this same period a group of young dons from Trinity College, Cambridge, were also turning to psychic research as a substitute for their lost Evangelical faith:

" In February 1882, Podmore took Pease to a meeting at which this group founded the Society for Psychical Research . . . Among those who founded the SPR were Henry Sidgwick, Arthur Balfour – later a conservative Prime Minister – and his brother, Gerald." (The Fabians, p. 18)

The progenitor of the socialist Fabian Society was the Cambridge University spiritist group, the Ghost Society, founded in 1851. The Ghost Society also spawned the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) founded in 1887:

"Council Members and Honorary Members of the SPR included a past Prime Minister (William Gladstone)...and a future Prime Minister (Arthur Balfour)...2 bishops; and Tennyson and Ruskin, two of the outstanding literary figures of the day (as well as) Lewis Carroll (and) a surprising number of titled persons." (Gauld, p. 140)

Having conceptually murdered the God of Revelation, supposedly liberated their souls from Him, closed the way to Heaven, and opened themselves to forces of darkness, Fabians sought power here below, thus the over-riding interest of the S.P.R. was the spirit realm. In search of power they conducted scientific research into phenomena such as mesmeric trance, telepathy, clairvoyance, apparitions, haunted houses, séances, and all aspects of mediumism, or contact with spirits, to determine the scientific laws of physical spiritualistic phenomena.

By the early 20th century, the materialist Sigmund Freud and heavily demonized Gnostic occultist Carl Jung were SPR Corresponding Members. Both men contributed to the S.P.R. Journal of Proceedings.

In an expose of Jung's occult tendencies Richard Noll writes:

"With the founding of the Society for Psychical Research in England in 1882, and the copious publications of its investigators, new models of the unconscious mind emerged. The most respected model was that of the 'subliminal self' by Frederick Myers (1843-1901), the 'mytho-poetic' (myth-making) function of which resembles Jung's later conception of a collective unconscious. Jung read widely in the literature of psychical research in medical school and his 1902 dissertation cites the work of Myers and others in this school." (Noll, The Jung Cult, pp. 31-2)

Above all else, revolutionary/evolutionary socialist organizations such as the Fabians were anti-supernatural, anti-morality,  anti-counter-establishment, anti-tradition, pan-sexual liberationists consisting of committed Darwinian Gnostic pagan elitists who were intolerant of the Holy God in three Persons, man as His spiritual image bearer, and every vestige of authority ranging from immutable Truth, Moral Law, sexual ethics, and the traditional family to free market systems, individual liberties, and cumbersome processes of Americas' Constitutional Republic. What they desired was a new order ruled by a superior caste.

Fabianism took its name from Roman general Fabius Cunctator who finally defeated Hannibal by methodically chipping away at his patience and will to win, an idea adopted by Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci who called for a long, slow, stealthy march through Western and American mind and culture-shaping institutions. In this way, Christian foundations would be undermined and destroyed, minds captured, souls re-engineered and institutions re-ordered. Gatto writes that for Fabianists, Darwin was their ticket to power. He was the 'weird holy man' they adored,

"...the man who gave them a theory inspirationally equal to god-theory, around which a new organization of society could be justified." (p. 180)

To realize the tremendous task Fabian progressives assigned themselves, Gatto writes that we,

"...need to reflect...on Darwin's shattering books, 'The Origin of Species' (1859) and 'The Descent of Man' (1871), each arguing in its own way that....children are (the evolved product of) their race of origin, some 'favored'...some not" (Gatto, p. 179)

Together, Darwin's books issued a "do what thou will" license to America's progressive ruling caste to justify moral relativism, the imposition of evolutionary teaching, forced schooling, perverse sex education, and much more, all destructive of America's traditional Christian-based Republic. Gatto writes that from an evolutionary standpoint, our government controlled schools,

"...are the indoctrination phase of a gigantic breeding experiment...Many (children are genetically) a racial menace (while) the rest...thought of as soldiers in genetic combat, the moral equivalent of war....For governments, children could no longer be considered individuals but were regarded as categories, rungs on a biological ladder. Evolutionary science pronounced the majority useless mouths waiting for nature to dispense with entirely." (Gatto, p. 179)

Whereas Christian salvation was formerly held to be a matter between Jesus Christ the Word Incarnate and the individual and the aim of Christian-based Europe and America had for centuries been fixed on the work of winning liberties for the individual against the oppressive State, the Age of Darwin brought an end to all of this. By the turn of the century the Fabian program based in occult science, ancient wisdom traditions, revelations from Transcended Masters (fallen angels) and Darwinism was spreading quickly through the best colleges and universities capturing the minds of America's best and brightest issuing in the view that rights, privileges, wealth and resources are the preserve of the superior caste in control of an omniscient mystical god-State together with salvation as a pantheist conception based in ideas of collectivity (monism).

Secular historians of the nineteenth century agree that the dominant figures in the occult spiritist/socialist movements were mainly lapsed Evangelicals and Anglican clergymen preceded by Renaissance occultists. The onslaught of skepticism, atheism, agnosticism, higher Biblical criticism and dehistorization of the Genesis account together with moral relativism, Darwinism and occult New Age spirituality assaulting the tattered foundations of our Republic were inspired by Protestant/Evangelical heresy together with an unhealthy interest in spiritism. Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie explain this strange anomaly:

"The lesson instilled by Evangelical parents had been given a secular form. Evolution or what (Sidney) Webb called Zeitgeist, had taken the place of Providence, yet what Webb described as 'blind social forces'...which went on inexorably working out social salvation' did not relieve men of their moral responsibility. Victorian religion had taught that a belief in God's purposes must be accompanied by an effort to discern and advance them. Socialists who substituted a secular religion for the faith of their youth felt the same compulsion." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, p. 115-116)

By the mid 1880's the spirit of apostasy into relativism, occult magic, spiritism, nature worship and evolutionary thinking at work within lapsed Evangelicals and Anglicans was already creeping into the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Church. Today Christendom is dead and the lie of Romans 1:25 is bringing our Republic to ruin while steadily injecting its' abominations into the whole body of the humanized American Church and casting faithful orthodox Christians and all decent, law-abiding Americans as "right-wing extremists.". All of this is aided and abetted by priestly falsifiers of the Revealed Word who have penetrated the Church with a mist of lies resulting in narcissistic self-affirmation, emotional ecstasy, moral relativism, acceptance of evolutionary philosophy and other ancient wisdom traditions along with liberation from sin and hell,

"....Western civilization is daily committing suicide, by aborting itself, ignoring the law of God, and binding itself in Green chains. What of professing Christians? It is not clear many believe, as they still did at the American Revolution, that 'the truths of the gospel are the most pure, its motives are the most noble and animating, and its comforts the most supporting to the mind.' Our culture is arguably as enslaved as were the ancient people chained by Gaia and Python." (Resisting the Green Dragon, James Wanliss, p. 267)

Only Christ can bring liberation. The Church needs to repent and recover the Biblical persuasion,

"....  that the Christian is a pilgrim on the road to a heavenly city, that the social structures of the earthly city do not represent the coming of God's kingdom, and the vision of a society should be to direct man to what is transcendent." (ibid)

Foolish Leftist Catholics and the Synod of Sodomy

Peter LaBarbera, President of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality reports that every American who is concerned about the homosexualist juggernaut–whether Catholic or not–should be aware of what is transpiring among Catholics, and the leftist campaign to subvert the Church's teachings on homosexuality and marriage. That is because Catholics and the Church’s actions have such a huge influence over the overall “gay” debate, both here and abroad:

"We will follow the Synod of the Family–dubbed the “Sodomy Synod” by (Michael) Voris." Conservative Catholic Michael Voris, "is founder of ChurchMilitant.com and a leading fighter against pro-homosexual “progressives” in the Catholic Church. Voris is a Catholic, and I am an evangelical. We may disagree strongly on points of theology (and agree on others)–but let me tell you, this guy is a warrior, and I respect that."  (Michael Voris Takes on Pro-Homosexual Leftist Catholics at the 'Sodomy Synod' in Rome, LaBarbera, AFTAH)

Pro-evolutionary/homosexual Leftist Catholics are self-righteous spiritual frauds--hypocrites whose baseless confession of faith neither recognizes or submits to the authority of Jesus Christ, the Head of the Body of Christ.  Rather, like Pharisees of old, they are their own authority whose cunning, like that of their father the devil, consists in calling into question the truth of God's Word and His sufficiency.  Their brazen, god-like authority comes from scientifically and evolutionarily depriving the Lord of the authoritative power of His own spoken Word in order to give their own words the active force of the Triune Gods creative words. In this way, empowered Leftist Catholics can unweave and refashion creation, reinvent human beings and the two created sexes, paganize Scripture, make sodomy good and moral opposition to it bad, and creatively destroy the Church as needed.  This is an evil man's power trip.   

Their main concerns are worldly: getting what they want, being well thought of by other worldlings, maintaining their own status, position, influence, popularity and wealth. 

Ultimately, their 'faith' is a Christless Christianity and they are fools laying up earthly treasures for themselves which they justify by their so-called 'good works.'  To such as these, the Lord says,

"Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?"  Luke 12:20

Return of the Wicked Watchers

"I was confronted by a red light, exceedingly bright...I was aware that this light was responsible for the government of the universe." ("What I Saw When I was Dead," atheist A.J. Ayer)

"Whenever I stopped pushing on his chest in order to adjust the pacemaker, the heart would stop and Charlie's eyes would roll up. He again would sputter, turn blue and begin to convulse. I reached over and started him up again. But this time, he was screaming the words, "Don't stop! I'm in hell! I'm in hell!" (To Hell and Back,  Maurice Rawlings, M.D.)

In his bestseller, "Life After Death: The Evidence," author Dinesh D'Souza presents a logically reasoned, scientifically based case that the evidence for life after death greatly outweighs atheistic claims to the contrary. D'Souza notes that throughout the world today Near Death Experiences (NDEs) are acknowledged to be a global phenomenon that provide strong support for life after death. Indeed said D'Souza,a 2005 survey of,

"American doctors showed that 59 percent now believe in some form of afterlife, a much higher percentage than is found in other scientific professions. Possibly their encounter with patients who have had near death experiences is partly responsible for this. I doubt they learned it in medical school." (pp. 64-65)

It isn't just NDEs that have revived interest in unseen intelligences and the afterlife but increasing cases of possession and UFO encounters with beings calling themselves Space Brothers, Council of Nine, Semjase and Ashtar.

 Today a vanguard of anthropologists, scientific psychiatrists, and other professionals from the counseling and medical field take very seriously the fact that something frightening and unexplainable by Western science (scientific materialism) is going on here in America and throughout the West. In their search for answers they are jettisoning as useless the materialist claim of man as a soulless animal whose brain is a biochemical machine. A "new" consensus is emerging: men have souls, demons exist and they can and do possess people:

"...we need to understand a number of different concepts in order to comprehend the worldwide phenomenon of possession and exorcism. On the psychological level, we have come to know the notion underlying all possession, namely, that the body is a shell, inhabited by a soul, and that this shell may on occasion be surrendered to an intrusive alien entity" (How about Demons? Possession and Exorcism in the Modern World, Felicitas Goodman,1988)

World-renowned UFOlogist and archaeologist Dr. Clifford Wilson is but one of many researchers who have pointed out how an entity calling itself "Ashtar" keeps popping up in UFO accounts.   Along with Semjase (Samlazaz, Semjaza), who has been posing as a modern space-brother, Ashtar keeps appearing in UFO literature as well as ancient texts.  John Keel, one of the world's most published and highly respected UFOlogists also noted this.   Highlighting the element of deception he wrote:
 
"Thousands of mediums, psychics, and UFO contactees have been receiving mountains of messages from "Ashtar" in recent years.... Ashtar is not a new arrival.    Variations of this name, such as Astaroth, Ashar, Asharoth, etc. appear in demonological literature throughout history, both in the Orient and Occident.   Mr. Ashtar had been around a very long time, posing as assorted gods and demons and now, in the modern phase, as another glorious spaceman."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 290)

In ancient Babylon, Astoreth (Inanna, Ashtar, Ishtar of the Accadians, Istar, Semiramis, Milcom, Cybele, Astarte of the Greeks, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite; 1 Kings 11:5, 33; 2 Kings 23:13) was the androgynous consort of Anu, the supreme sky god.  

According to Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their,

“...devotion to Istar who herself had ‘transformed their masculinity into femininity.'”  (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Jones, truthxchange)

Who are Semjaza (Shemihazah) andAshtar/Istar?

"Because that they have forsaken me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in my ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father."  1 Kings 11:33

"ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god which ye made to yourselves."  (Amos 5:26-27) "ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them." ( Acts 7:42-43)
 
Chiun in Amos answers to Remphan in Acts; and this god in turn is but another phase of Moloch or Saturn, the "star god," A star was put on the head of the images of the idol representing Saturn; hence "images" answer to "star" in parallelism while Remphan and Chiun answer to the Phoenician goddess Astarte or Ashtoreth, as well as to Moloch, Cybele, Pan and Cernunnos, the horned god of Celtic polytheism who in his return appearance today is Baphomet while in India, Parvati and Siva, the androgynous destroyer of worlds.  ( Bible History On-Line)

According to ANE Scholar Dr. Michael Heiser, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University, Semjaza, the androgynous Ashtar and all other pagan gods 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/Reptillian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

Dr. Gary Bates, ex-evolutionist turned young earth creationist, turned to the Book of Enoch for identification of the Watchers.  Not only does the Book of Jude 14-15 refer to the book of Enoch but is an exact rendering of Enoch, chapter 1:9.   Moreover, Enoch 6-7 identifies Semjaza as a ringleader of the 200 Watchers who descended Mount Hermon in the pre-flood world:

"Come, let us choose wives from among the children of men and beget us children."  And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: "I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin."  And they all answered him and said: "Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations upon it.  And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon....And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz (Shemihazah)... Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, Asael (Azazel), Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqlel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel."  (Alien Intrusion, Bates, p. 398)

The Watchers taught men heresies and forbidden knowledge such as enchantments, sorcery, incantations, the science of magic transformism (shape-shifting and/or change or evolution of one kind into another kind), astrology, science of constellations, the smitings of spirits and demons, and the smitings of the embryo in the womb (abortion), that it may pass away.  They also taught women the use of cosmetics and men how  to make weapons of war.  

The Spirit World Moving Closer

"Sorry, but your soul just died." (naturalist Tom Wolfe, cited in The Spiritual Brain: A Neuroscientist's Case for the Existence of the Soul, Beauregard and O'Leary, p. 4)

With breathtaking speed, Americans who have been led into forgetfulness of their own souls are emerging from a cocoon of spiritual deadness induced by atheist scientific materialism and evolution into a frightening occult spiritual reality long known about by ancient pagans and early Christians.  

With regard to the state of the soul upon the death of its' body, as well as its state during Near Death Experiences and out-of-body-experiences attained by way of certain drugs, transcendental meditation or other psycho-spiritual techniques early Church Father St. Augustine taught that when a soul separates itself from its' body,

"the man himself who is in such a state, though it be in spirit only, not in body, yet sees himself so like to his own body that he cannot discern any difference whatever." (City of God, Book XXI, 10)

In his treatise, "The Divination of Demons" Augustine explains why men, when "in body" are unable to perceive demons and angels:

"The nature of demons is such that, though the sense perception belonging to the aerial body, (spirits) readily surpass the perception possessed by earthly bodies, and in speed too, because of the superior mobility of the aerial body, they incomparably excel not only the movements of men and of beasts but even the flight of birds. Endowed with these two faculties (keenness of perception and speed of movement) they foretell and declare many things that they have recognized far in advance. At this, because of the sluggishness of earthly perception, men wonder." Because evil spirits have existed from the beginning they, "have gained a far greater experience in events than accrues to men because of the brief span of their lives."  Thus, "demons not only foretell many things that will occur, but also perform many miraculous acts." (Chapter 3, Divination of Demons)

Though men cannot perceive evil spirits, they are there, said Church Father Cassian in his "Conferences." According to   Cassian:

"Such a multitude of evil spirits fills this air which is spread out between heaven and earth and in which they fly in disturbance and not idly, that the Divine Providence for our benefit has hidden and removed them from the gaze of men; otherwise, from fear of their attack, or of the frightful spectacle of the faces into which they are transformed and changed by their own will...men would be struck with unbearable terror and ready for collapse..." (The Soul After Death, Fr. Seraphim Rose, pp. 29-30)

It is during "out of body experiences" that the soul of man can fully perceive aerial spirits. The most commonly reported encounters are with a wonderful being of light experienced as some kind of personal being filled with warmth and love to whom the out-of-body soul is drawn by a kind of magnetic attraction. Often the experience includes many other apparitions, including other people. Church Father Gregory the Great describes these encounters in his Dialogues:

"It frequently happens that a soul on the point of death recognizes those with whom it is to share the same eternal dwelling for equal blame or reward."   To the righteous, "it often happens that the saints of heaven appear (and) with the vision of the heavenly company before their minds, they die without experiencing any fear or agony." (Dialogues, IV, 12)

In his book on the Holy Spirit, Church Father Basil the Great states the heavenly powers only appear,

 "...to those who are worthy, in the form of their own bodies." (Works of St. Basil, cited in The Soul After Death, p. 23)

Jesus Christ Himself affirms that to the worthy appear the heavenly powers:

"And it came to pass that the begger died, and that he was carried away by the angels into Abraham's bosom." Luke 16:22

There is nothing vague about the heavenly powers. They do not appear as "beings of light" but rather have a human appearance. By contrast, the being of light frequently encountered during out-of-body-experiences and NDEs has no visible form and does not conduct the soul anywhere. The being of light merely engages the soul in dialogue and shows flashbacks of one's past life. But then Satan can in fact fashion himself into an angel of light. (II Cor. 11:14)

In his 1975 book, "Life After Death," Dr. Raymond Moody reported on 150 cases of people who experienced NDEs. What made these cases incredible was that most of these people had similar if not virtually identical experiences. With regard to the being of light Dr. Moody and other investigators wondered if it was an evil spirit but then dismissed the possibility because it was not in harmony with the wonderful results the apparition produces.

Ex-atheist Dr. Maurice Rawlings, a cardiologist, has resuscitated many persons who have been clinically dead. Now a Christian, he dismisses Moody's contention on the basis of his own terrifying experiences with some of his patients.  These frightening experiences have taught him that contrary to the most-published accounts of NDE encounters with a being filled with warmth and love,  some NDE's are absolutely terrifying. In these hellish encounters, the out-of-body soul meets with grotesque beings,

"....who may be lurking in the shadows or along a burning lake of fire. The horrors defy description..." Even some "regular church members" have been shocked to find themselves experiencing hellish, "manifestations of imps and grotesque giants, of a descent into blackness and a fiery heat, of a pit and an ocean of fire." (Beyond Death's Door, Rawlings, pp. 63-64, 103-110)

 German actor Curt Jürgen's experienced a horrifying feeling that life was ebbing away from him.  After this he felt powerful sensations of dread as everything suddenly turned a glowing red.  Then he saw twisted faces grimacing as they stared down at him.  He tried to defend himself 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)

Dr.  Rawlings is firmly convinced that upon death all humans either enter heaven or hell. In a video hosted by Rawlings, he investigates life after death and his experiences with patients that actually saw 'the other side':

Dr. Carl Raschke is an internationally known writer and academic who for the past decade has been researching and explaining the effects of postmodern Christianity and its global significance. He notes with alarm America's downward spiral into the madness of demonic spirituality. He points out that the decadence, pornography, mass murders, criminality, the 'new religions,' and Satanism in American culture have certain social and spiritual ties that bind them together, revealing that they are part of a similar spiritual genus. In "Satanism and the Devolution of the 'New Religions,' Raschke notes that Satanism is so widespread today that there are even U.S. military personnel who are members of secretive Satanist groups.

Raschke concludes that the post-Christian West is experiencing an upsurge in satanic manifestations. The Satanist mindset, said Raschke, is a mystification of the most corrupt secular passions and values and is the spiritual Frankenstein,

"....created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God." (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West, Part 6, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

It is only in the context of Western apostasy tied to a phenomenal growth in atheism, satanic spirituality and increasing demonic manifestations tied to the return of the wicked serpentine Watchers that todays' marked increase in 'other worldly' encounters can be understood.  It is Church Father Gregory the Great who makes clear to us just what is going on and why. After describing various visions and after death experiences in his Dialogues, Gregory remarks,

"the spiritual world is moving closer to us, manifesting itself through visions and revelations...As the present world approaches its end, the world of eternity looms nearer..."

Gregory adds that through these visions and revelations, which in our own time are much more common and widespread than they were in his, we see the truths of the future life imperfectly because the light is still "dim and pale, like the light of the sun in the early hours of the day just before dawn."

In other words, during Gregory's time mankind was being provided clear proof that there is another world, that heaven and hell exist and life does not end with the death of the body. Moreover, there really is a soul that survives the death of its' body and is in fact more conscious and alive after it is released from its' body.

At no time in the history of mankind has possession,  UFO encounters, NDEs and other 'out-of-body-experiences' been a worldwide phenomenon such that secular investigators have taken notice. Gregory saw that the spiritual realm was even then approaching. The marked increase of such phenomena in our own time is a sign of its extreme nearness and therefore signals the approaching end of this world:

Unless we are mistaken...the twentieth century...is to witness a gigantic conflict of spirits...More serious and fiercer than ever before, the conflict is between the old and the new worldview." Herman Bavinck, Christian theologian, 1901

"...we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places."  Ephesians 6:12, ESV
