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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Godless America's Idolatrous, Brazenly Hypocritical, Scapegoating Society

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

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

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

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

"Racialized people experience systemic discrimination on a daily basis, on many levels, and in ways that white people may never encounter.

The iniquity lurking beneath the paranoid suggestion that "racialized people" need "safe spaces" because of so-called "systemic discrimination" by evil white racists is scapegoating.  A scapegoat is a person or group of people made to take the blame for everything that goes wrong.

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

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

Thus Truth and the unbearable revelation of her own sin,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lest we mistakenly perceive idolaters as nice, misunderstood people, in "Journey to the Celestial City," Wayne Martindale sets straight this error with his unvarnished depiction of hell-bound idolaters as haters of good people.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Marxist Utopianism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why the Utopian Dream Will Not Die

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Global leaders are meddling with dark forces:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why the Nations Worship the Sun God

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Gnostic paganization of Biblical studies can be summarized thusly:

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

2. Gnostic influence reduces faith to inner knowing and feelings

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Connections

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Judgement and Wrath: The Biblical Explanation for Madness and Evil

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Western and American Gnostic Caste System

Without our realizing it, the chief ancient and modern rival of supernatural Christianity--Gnostic Modernism (occult pantheism)---has triumphed over the West and America.   It emerged out of the Renaissance, a time of revitalization of ancient mystery religions, spiritism, magic, pantheist animism, and inverse evolutionary origin accounts,  and began its' infiltration of the American Christian church at the beginning of the last century.   In speaking of its' inroads J. Gresham Machen said,

"A terrible crisis has arisen in the Church. In the ministry of evangelical  churches are to be found hosts of those who reject the gospel of Christ. By the  equivocal use of traditional phrases, by the representation of differences of  opinion as though they were only differences about the interpretation of the  Bible, entrance into the Church was secured for those who are hostile to the  very foundations of the faith. And now there are some indications that the  fiction of conformity to the past is to be thrown off, and the real meaning of  what has been taking place is to be allowed to appear. The Church, it is now  apparently supposed, has almost been educated up to the point where the shackles  of the Bible can openly be cast away and the doctrine of the Cross of Christ can  be relegated to the limbo of discarded subtleties." (Liberalism or Christianity, Machen, The Princeton Theological Review, Vol. 20, No. 1, 1922, Page 93, Whitehorse Inn)

For faithful orthodox Christians, the 'very foundations of the faith' are the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis and to a greater degree, the Christian worldview.  Genesis is the Divine account of the origin of the universe, of all life, of the creation and purpose of man and woman, the foundation and purpose of marriage, the roles of the two sexes male and female, and of the value of children.

In His divine revelation God also tells us what went wrong with the world and man in the account of the fall and reveals something of man’s cosmic adversary and his timeless methods of deception and seduction used to lead men away from God.  Thus the question of evil, suffering, and death is explained in the first eleven chapters of Genesis as well as the ‘fix,’ meaning the only way of salvation.

Gnostic Modernism (mystical pantheist spirituality) and its' materialist evolutionary counterpart are subtly disguised syncretic mixtures of Babylonian Cabalism, ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, the Mysteries from the time of Babylon, spiritual evolution, Greek and Roman nature religions,Hinduism, Buddhism, reincarnation, karma and an inverted evolutionary account bespeaking the evolutionary transformation of various creatures into human beings.

 The primary doctrine for both variations is an inverted evolutionary account of origins.  Other commonalities are denial of creation ex nihilo, the incarnation and deity of Jesus Christ and His resurrection, and  denial of hell.  Gnostics of both stripes find salvation in the gnosis of elite men such as scientists, philosophers, and spiritual gurus and either teach a godless evolving  universe of matter or a pantheist based conception of God as divine energy, Life force, Mind of the Universe, Christ consciousness, or Omega, for example.    Gnostic Modernism further claims that as God is supposedly in everything, and everything is continuously evolving, then God is always in process of 'becoming' or 'changing.'   Thus all things, including the Bible and the Christian church, the two sexes, truth, and moral laws must change or become 'contemporary' too.  

Within Darwinian biological evolution, evolutionary dynamics are not empirical science but rather metaphysical conceptions while in theological modernism they are spiritual conceptions.  From the time of the Renaissance when high-ranking, influential Christian Churchmen, intellectuals, and mystics had rejected the fundamental teachings of Christian theism in favor of the Mysteries, Cabalism and other ancient creeds on through to the German Idealists of early 19th century, evolution was viewed as a spiritual conception bespeaking progress (transformation) of spirit over time within many different bodies.

The German Idealists were mystical philosophers of pantheism who predated Darwin's Origin of Species by at least half a century.  In 1799 the mystic philosopher Friedrich Schelling summarized what was fascinating him as well as his mystical contemporaries such as J.G. Fichte and the occult Hermetic magician Hegel:

"History as a whole is a progressive, gradually self-disclosing revelation of the Absolute." (A Brief History of Evolutionary Spirituality, Tom Huston)

The modern conception of spiritual evolution can be traced to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.  Writing on “The Ultimate Origin of Things” in the year 1697—six years after speculating in his Protogaea that over the vast course of the earth’s history “even the species of animals have many times been transformed” he claimed that,

a cumulative increase of the beauty and universal perfection of the works of God, a perpetual and unrestricted progress of the universe as a whole must be recognized, such that it advances to a higher state of development.”

Though the idea that man and creation are not fallen but rather evolving upward from primordial matter in a ceaseless ascent toward perfection had already been intuited over seventy years earlier by the German mystic Jakob Böhme, it was Leibniz who first placed it in a scientific context.

Over the next few decades Gnostic thinkers such as Diderot, Maupertuis, Buffon, and Voltaire all wrote about the fascinating topic of evolution but, "like any self-respecting champions of the Age of Enlightenment, rarely felt compelled to inject divinity into their more scientific speculations."

By upholding the liberating power of rationalism, science and evolution to subvert the fundamentals of the Bible and Christian theism, they actively sought to draw a clear distinction between science and spirituality, reason and religion.  In this context, through much of the eighteenth century, the many musings about the idea of evolution frequently took on a strictly naturalistic or materialistic tone:

"It was only around 1799, ten years after the storming of the Bastille, which ignited the French Revolution and cemented the success of the rational Enlightenment in the annals of the Western mind, that these varied intimations of evolution finally congealed into a cohesive new model of reality. Arising, once again, from the fertile depths of the German zeitgeist, it was a cosmological and metaphysical paradigm that seamlessly united science and spirituality—an evolutionary vision that stretched from the simplest atoms of the distant past to a sacred future in which human society would perfectly reflect the transcendent unity of the Divine. " (ibid, Huston)

In his essay, "The Paganization of New Testament Studies," Dr. Peter Jones exposes theological progressivism as neo-pagan Gnosticism and writes that throughout its history, its' primary goal has been the,

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

Twentieth century's most dangerous expression of secular Gnosticism was Marxist Communism, a form of Manichean Gnosticism.  Also called scientific socialism, Marxist Communism was the first natural religion of scientific evolutionary Gnostic atheism to emerge out of the “God is dead” Enlightenment period.  Since scientific socialism is a religion of  'matter' and the energies that work on matter it requires the unmaking of man created in the spiritual likeness of the living, personal Creator.

Bella Dodd was an important leader of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) in the 1930' s and 1940's. Her book, "School of Darkness" (1954) reveals that Communism---the promise of a utopia-- was a hoax perpetrated by a banker/corporatist coterie "to control the common man" and to advance world tyranny.  In chapter eleven of Dodd's book she notes that the unmaking of man as God's spiritual image-bearer is the key to the spiritual, intellectual and physical enslavement of mankind:

 “This is the key to the mental enslavement of mankind: that the individual is made into nothing, that he operates as the physical part of what is considered a higher group intelligence and acts at the will of that higher intelligence….”

The mental and physical enslavement (dehumanization of the masses) is required by highly evolved gnostikoi (pneumatics), proud spiritual elites who see themselves as the only ones capable of reason and of ordering the lives of everyone else, right down to the smallest detail.

In "Against the Protestant Gnostics," (p. 34) pastor and theologian Philip J, Lee writes that gnostikoi take it upon themselves to divide humankind into three categories:

1. Somatic (hylic): the masses of unevolved mindless beast-men who are content to exist on a bodily level: eating, drinking, defecating, sleeping, partying, copulating, sodomizing each other, and dying.  Hylic are mere beast-men beyond help.  

2. Psychics: those who function at the higher level of mind, intellect, emotions---the commonsense types who comprise the majority of the Church, Tea Partiers, etc.

3. Pneumatics: the elite spiritual gnostikoi----the man-gods comprising America's Progressive Ruling Class.

The Gnostic Basilides, when asked if somatics could really be called men at all, categorically denied it.   Sounding just like modern gnostic Marxists, their fascist brethren and America's gnostic "elites" who dehumanized the masses in order to destroy the family, enslave, manipulate, propagandize, indoctrinate, gas, starve to death, euthanize and abort them, Basilides said: 

"We are men; all the others are pigs and dogs."  (ibid, Lee)

Modern Gnostic regimes (Marxist Communism, Hitler's Socialism) began by rejecting the Triune God and Christ's deity, denying objective standards of right and wrong, and forcing Darwinism---which dehumanizes mankind---onto an unwitting population.   Darwinism allows the gnostikoi to throw out sanctity of life and reduce mankind to matter in motion.  The end case in every instance, was to place absolute power over dehumanized masses (somatics) in the hands of antihuman psychopaths and autocratic states to be wielded without restraint or mercy.  

Of all belief systems, modern Gnosticism has been by far the bloodiest.  In his book, Death by Government, R.J. Rummel comprehensively details the roughly 170 million people murdered by Gnostic governments during the 20th century. 

Even at its mildest, as is thus far the case here in America, there is a steady level of lying, confiscation, corruption, fraud, and stifling of freedoms and free speech.  For the first time ever, Americans are afraid of saying certain words.  Parents fear disciplining their own children.  More ominously, the gnostikoi in control of American institutions---government, seminaries, education, media, science, finance, and law have nearly succeeded in replacing the living, transcendent God with Darwinism, thus allowing them to throw out both sanctity of life and objective standards.  "We the people" have been dehumanized---reduced to matter and energy in motion.

As early as 1926, President Calvin Coolidge was aware of and deeply concerned by the insidious spread evolutionary materialism (Gnostic neo-paganism) in America.  As he knew, Americans are free only because of the supernatural Judeo-Christian foundation laid by the country's founders.  In a speech he delivered in Philadelphia (July 5, 1926) to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence he tried to call Americans back to their Biblically-based heritage.

He reminded Americans that the Declaration's principles of liberty arise from man's God-given inalienable rights.  And these are found, said Coolidge,

"in the texts, the sermons, and the writings of the early colonial clergy..."  The clergy preached equality "because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man."  Sanctity of life, the right to self-defense, and all the rest of our individual liberties were justified "by the text that we are all created in the divine image, all partakers of the divine spirit."  God's children therefore, have no "superiors" there are no modern-day "divine rights kings"  (or gnostikoi) who possess "any right to rule...over them." (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

The Declaration,

"(is) a great spiritual document."  Its principles are not material but spiritual.  "Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man---these are not elements we can see and touch.  They are ideals (whose) source and roots (are) in religious convictions.  They belong to the unseen world." (ibid)

President Coolidge cautioned Americans that,

"......unless the faith of the Americans in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish.  We can not continue to enjoy the result if we abandon the cause." (ibid)

Coolidge ended his speech with a stark warning:

"We must not sink into a pagan materialism..."  

Issuing another wake-up call, Dr. Jones closed his essay with a warning that comes from Johannes van Oort, Professor of church history and the history of dogma at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and world expert on Manichean Gnosticism.  Oort states a fact and gives a challenge:

"…Gnosis in one form or another is expected to become the main expression of secular religion in the new millennium. In order to equip the Church for this new age, the scientific study of Gnosticism is vital."

Back to Mars Hill: Gnosticism, Baphomet, Cyborgs, Death of the West, and Massacre of Christians

In ‘Largest Massacre of Christians in Syria’ Ignored" Raymond Ibrahim reports that one of the worst Christian massacres complete with,

 "...mass graves, tortured-to-death women and children, and destroyed churches—recently took place in Syria, at the hands of the U.S.-supported jihadi “rebels”; and the U.S. government and its “mainstream media” mouthpiece are, as usual, silent (that is, when not actively trying to minimize matters)."  (The Aquila Report)

 In other words, the sinister power stealthily aiding and abetting the massacre of Syrian Christians is our own ‘deep state’ Gnostic Progressive Leftist controlled government.   

Though names have changed over time and new members added, it remains the case that behind the murderous Soviet Union, Hitler's occult National Socialist Reich, the ongoing destruction of the West, redistribution of its wealth, and replacement of Westerners and Americans with Muslims, there has been a powerful financial coterie of 'elite' progressives and like-minded travelers committed to a mystical pantheist worldview, apotheosis, self-empowerment, revolution and death.  From the turn of the century till now, the coterie has been financing catastrophic worldwide wars, revolutions and mass murder, particularly of faithful Jews and Christians since the turn of the century:

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

"Persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism – mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Bolshevism – is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history.... Attempts at "killing the soul" started only months after the Revolution of 1917." Persecution and martyrdom was, "several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed. It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime."(New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com)

Despite the election of Donald Trump, most of America's government, financial institutions, defense, education, media, music, liberalized churches, seminaries, and other cultural and mind-shaping institutions remain in the hands of God-and-America-hating 'deep state' Gnostic Progressives, the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from the beginning,

 "... has been characterized by a desire to be free from the burden of Christianity...As a rebellion against Christianity, its negative goal defined its positive form: the desire to remove the church and replace it with the state gave liberalism its structure, beliefs, and goals."  (Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Worship, Benjamin Wiker)

Wiker writes that as far back as the Renaissance the strong impulse to throw off the restraints of the personal Triune God and Christianity was already at work in certain Churchmen and intellectuals, hence their eventual embrace of anti-creation evolutionary materialism:

 “The desire to be liberated from the constraints of Christianity was the original reason for modern liberalism’s embrace of a world defined entirely by materialism—the view that there are no immaterial entities like God of the soul, but only physical entities. This embrace of materialism began as far back as the Renaissance. And the same impulse was behind the nineteenth-century enthusiasm for scientific materialism, and it remains a staple of liberalism today."  (Ibid, Benjamin Wiker)

Within the materialist and evolutionary pattern of thought,

"there is neither need nor room for the supernatural. The earth was not created; it evolved. So did all the animals and plants that inhabit it, including our human selves, mind and soul as well as brain and body. So did religion."   (The Humanist Frame, Julian Huxley, p. 18)

Having rejected the Christian roots of their own civilization, contemporary Progressive Leftists have merged materialism with a new Gnostic mystical pantheist order of beliefs of which global socialism, a form of monism (collectivism or totalism), is a logical expression.  In keeping with Marxist Communism, Nazi Socialism, New Age Spirituality, Luciferianism, and “God is dead” theology, Progressive Leftism is a Neo-Gnostic movement that exalts Lucifer as the Light Bearer and emancipator of man while demonizing Jehovah as an evil, malformed, ignorant deity sometimes called Yaldabaoth, the 'fallen' Holy Creator God of the Old Testament who created the evil material world, angels and human beings (automatons).  Thus Helena Blavatsky, architect of New Age spirituality concluded that it is but natural,

"...to view Satan, 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." As man's benefactor, Lucifer continues to assist man's evolution." (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, pp. 224-225) 

Rather than Yaldabaoth, modern Gnostic Transhumanists such as Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association, suggest that the Holy Trinity is an evil alien supercomputer, an ego-driven consciousness, the evil Lord Archon – a projection of artificial intelligence. The Lord Archon 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 Cosmic Mind or Gnostic Pleroma. (1)

All permutations of Western neo-Gnosticism believe the world is not real but rather a simulation or mental construct in the mind for example, of extraterrestrials, the Lord Archon, or Yaldabaoth. This idea not only undergirds identity politics, constructivism, and social justice (2) but is strikingly similar to Hinduism's Brahman. Brahman however, is not an evil Archon but the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (prakriti matter, anima mundi or prima materia), the Essence of all phenomena, meaning that the universe exists only as a mental construction in the mind of Brahman: brahma satyam jagan mithya, or "Brahman is real, the world is unreal." (swamij.com/mahavakyas)

“...pride is their necklace; The garment of violence covers them. Their eye bulges from fatness. The imaginations of their heart run riot. They mock and wickedly speak of oppression; They speak from on high. They have set their mouth against the heavens,  And their tongue parades through the earth.”   Psalm 73: 6-9

In this light it can be seen why Western Gnostic movements are vehemently anti-supernatural and anti-creation ex nihilo in favor of an inverted evolutionary exegesis.  Western Gnosticism is a redoubt of the proud who speak sophistry from on high while mocking and ridiculing decent, hard-working Americans.  Gnostic Progressivism is amoral, satanic, technocratic, and chiliastic.  It represents the ultimate inversion and reversion of the Triune God, His creation, Satan, reality, good and evil, and the fall of Adam and Eve.  As opposed to the Biblical version, the Gnostic account reverses Adam and Eve's violation of God's command as merely a mindless failure to commit the act rightly in the first place while the serpent is no longer Satan, but an “incognito savior” who makes man aware of his own innate divinity and promises to unlock the god within all of the chosen. This theme of apotheosis underpins neo-Gnosticism, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnosticism and the pagan Mystery religions from the time of Babylon. (3) 

This is why demonically deceived Gnostic Progressives look upon themselves as god-like redeemers of a world corrupted by Jehovah, Christianity, faithful Jews, the procreative family, capitalism, property ownership, racism, sexism, homophobia, and class divisions.    It is demonic mendacity that allows them to regard "those who oppose them as eternally damned." (“The Threat We Face: what is the nature of the adversary we are up against?” David Horowitz, frontpagemag.com, October 9, 2013)

Gnostic Progressivism: A Brief Timeline

In 1947, the Progressive Liberal head of UNESCO, Julian Huxley, wrote a book entitled, "UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy." His book was a blueprint for a socialistic, evolutionary pantheist, collectivist New World Order that called for a single 'new' spirituality — a mixture of Buddhist materialist-pantheism, Luciferian Theosophy, paganized evolutionary Christianity, neo-Gnosticism, and other worldly traditions.  Huxley’s androgynous collectivist system called for one language, one way of thinking, a world food bank, a world bank, and a universal identification system.

 Huxley believed a global order could be brought about by syncretizing Christianity with the 'new' evolutionary spirituality, thus the task before UNESCO:

 "...is to help the emergence of a single world culture with its own philosophy and background of ideas and with its own broad purpose." (Crossroad.to/globalism/Julian-Huxley)

 Huxley spoke of two opposing, antithetical worldviews — one founded on the supernatural, personal, Triune God and creation ex nihilo and the other on anti-creation evolutionary materialism and pantheist monism confronting each other from the West and the East. In describing them he said,

 "You may categorize the two philosophies as...individualism versus collectivism or as the American versus the Russian...or as capitalism versus communism, or as Christianity versus Marxism. Can these opposites be reconciled, this antithesis be resolved in a higher synthesis? I believe...this can happen...through the inexorable dialectic of evolution." (ibid)

The abomination spawned through the inexorable dialectic of evolution is evolutionary theism, the "higher synthesis" resulting from the reconciliation of opposites. 

In 1954, Whittaker Chambers warned that Western Progressive Liberal ‘elitists’ were committed to a secret complicity with murderous Communists.  Though they outwardly profess dislike for slave labor camps, purges, MVD, famines, et al, it is only,

 "....because they are afraid of being caught in them.  If they could have Communism without the brutalities of ruling that the Russian experience bred, they have only marginal objections (because they do not find them unjustifiable).  Why should they object?  What else is socialism but Communism with the claws retracted?" (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 253)

 Four years later, Conservative intellectual Frank Meyer summarized the Liberal pathology:

 "contemporary Liberalism is in agreement with Communism on ---the necessity and desirability of socialism (that) all inherited value---theological, philosophical, political (is) without intrinsic virtue or authority; that therefore, no irreconcilable differences exist between it and Communism..."  (Ibid, p. 137)

 Meyer concludes that amoral Progressive Liberals are,

 "... unfit for the leadership of a free society, and (are) intrinsically incapable of offering serious opposition to the Communist offensive." (ibid)

 In his book "The Naked Capitalist," W. Cleon Skousen exposes an unholy alliance of evil intentioned Progressive Liberal bankers and capitalists, American and English and both left and right, who financed the Bolshevik Revolution and the resulting Soviet Union.  Skousen verifies his findings through the writings of Dr. Carroll Quigley, a professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University and mentor to Bill Clinton.

 Quigley's opus, "Tragedy and Hope," reveals one of the worlds' best kept secrets: a gargantuan power complex that from the start has been controlling Marxist-Communist, Socialist, and anarchist groups:

"...the power that...Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or communist power but...the power of the international financial coterie." (p. 954, Tragedy and Hope)

According to Quigley the international financial coterie was the real power behind monstrous crimes against humanity committed by Communist and Nazi Socialist regimes. According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were murderous criminal enterprises in their very essence:

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

 Why did Quigley expose the existence of the global financial coterie? Because he said, it is now too late for the little people to turn the tide. He urged them to not fight the noose which is already around their necks, for they will only hang themselves:

"On the other hand, those who go along with the immense pressure which is beginning to be felt by all humanity will eventually find themselves in a man-made millennium of peace and prosperity." (The Naked Capitalist, Skousen, pp. 4-6)

Recently, top Progressive Leftists met with communists, Transhumanists, Cyborgs, Islamists and other powerful globalists from around the world to push for a 'new world order.'  Globalists gathered on the Arabian Peninsula for the 2018 World Government Summit where more than a few speakers made clear that individual liberty, self-government, and the “America First” agenda were in the crosshairs. On the other hand:

"Big Government, trans-humanism, and globalism were presented as the solution to basically everything, from alleged man-made “global warming” and health problems to unemployment and even hate. Aside from global governance and statism, one of the key themes of the conference was the merger of man and machine to become “cyborgs.” Artificial Intelligence and “Happiness,” directed by authorities, were also major topics.” (Creepy “World Government Summit” Targets America, Freedom,” Alex Newman, The New American, Feb. 21, 2018)

 Gnostic Progressivism: America's State Worship

Progressives believe their New World Order is a certainty because throughout contemporary America, Gnostic Progressive ideology reigns triumphant.  Its' inverted, dehumanizing evolutionary exegesis has captured the hearts of millions of Americans, including great numbers of Christian seminarians and theologians.  Progressive Liberalism, said Wiker, is now our State worship, which is why America has fallen down the rabbit hole into the upside-down fantasy realm of Mad Hatters and Red Queens where up is down, good is evil, male is female and in the eyes of the Gnostic left, American patriotism is not only illegitimate but equivalent to “white nationalism' and is racist."  (How Identity Politics is Designed to Destroy Us, David Horowitz, FrontPage Magazine, Feb 26, 2018) 

The racial identity politics of the Gnostic Progressive Left is part of a larger spectrum of poisonous “identity politics,”

"which has been embraced by the Democratic Party and is better understood as cultural Marxism. Cultural Marxists divide the population into racial, ethnic and gender groups and arrange them in a hierarchy of alleged oppression. This perverse and divisive view of American society was in fact the organizing principle of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, which justified her candidacy as ending the alleged inequality of women and the mythical wage-gender pay gap. Her opponents, she said, belonged in a “basket of deplorables,” which she identified as “racists, sexists, homophobes, Islamophobes, xenophobes – you name it." (ibid)

America's Crisis is Spiritual

The Western and American crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of the transcendent Holy God and of man's progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent (naturalistic) conception of reality.  Thus today we stand again on Mars Hill surrounded by hostile Gnostic pagan and mystical pantheist idolaters, Cyborgs, the horned goat-headed demon Baphomet, a host of blue-skinned Hindu gods and goddesses, and Luciferian and Kundalini serpent powers (evolution). The battle against spiritual darkness defies our imagination.

Why Post-Christian Pagan America has Succumbed to Transgender (Androgyny)

Based on an analysis of the foundational presuppositions of Mormon theology, this writer predicted in a 2013 essay entitled, "Why Mormonism will Surrender to Homosexuality," the capitulation of the Mormon Church and by extension the Boy Scouts to inclusion of practicing homosexuals.   Now with passage of the Supreme Court ruling, Obergefell v. Wade and by extension the declaration that a man (Bruce Jenner) is now a woman (Caitlyn), post-Christian America has also surrendered to the pagan ideal of transgender (androgyny).

 The reason for both Mormon and American acquiescence lies in one of the many crucial differences between Mormon theology and Biblical: the Genesis account of supernatural creation ex nihilo rather than Mormonism's naturalistic and evolutionary account.

 Like ancient pagan sages before him, Joseph Smith taught that matter is eternal and the Mormon God, having no power to create out of nothing, merely reorganized already present matter, which has no beginning or end and cannot be destroyed:

"Since Mormons believe that the elements are eternal, it follows that they deny the ex nihilo creation." (Encyclopedia of Mormonism 1:400).

From this it follows that a mere man can transform and/or evolve into a god, as Smith explains:

"It is necessary we should understand the character and being of God and how he came to be so; for I am going to tell you how God came to be God. We have imagined and suppose that God was God from all eternity. I will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see. and that he was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself did... Here then, is eternal life – to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priest to God, the same as all Gods have done before you, namely by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one…” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, 345-47)

In the Genesis account, the living, three times holy, supernatural Triune God spoke all things into existence ex-nihilo, meaning out of nothing. He is personal, self-existent, eternal, immutable, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He is the sovereign Lord of the universe. He is the God of all creation. He is the God who stands outside of the space-time dimension, thus creation actually began before time came to be as God spoke life, soul/spirit, matter and all else out of nothing. The living, supernatural God is the First Cause of all things. (Psalm 33:6; John 1:3; Romans 4:17; Hebrews 11:3):

"For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together." Col. 1:16, 17

In the "Pagan Temptation," Christian scholar Thomas Molnar writes that the idea that matter is eternal is a pattern of thought stretching back to the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greeks in the West and in the East to the Upanishads.  In this way of thinking, everything somehow mechanically emerged, evolved, or progressed out of either eternally existing matter as the ancients and Joseph Smith taught, or in contemporary terms from out of matter spontaneously-generated by an exploding Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) and undirected evolution over millions of years as contemporary atheists affirm or by a useless god unable to create from nothing as evolutionary theists teach.

From Babylon's evolutionary account of origins, the Enuma Elish, on through to our own time, primordial matter has gone by many names. For example: divine One Substance, Logos, watery abyss, void, Omega, Quantum Void, and the Energy behind everything.

The Egyptian Sun-God Ra, for example, emerged (created himself) from out of Nu – the divine One Substance (primordial matter) and then similar to Joseph Smith's account, became god "by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one:"

"I came into being from primordial matter...I made all the forms under which I appeared by means of (or out of) the god-soul which I raised up out of Nu (i.e., the primeval abyss of water.)" (The Long War Against God, Dr. Henry Morris, p. 243)

In all mystical pantheist systems positing matter as "psychic energy," "spirit," or impersonal, unknowing Mind, Molnar writes that spirit is not personal. It is neither male nor female. It does not live, think or speak; it merely is. (Psalm 115:5; 135: 16) The human soul therefore is not created in the spiritual image of the living One God in Three Persons, thus it follows that humans are not persons but rather uncreated aspects or units of the evolving universe of matter and energy.  Nor are they either male or female but rather two-in-ones, meaning androgynes or transgenders as they are called today.   

 This is naturalism, which is the belief taught by Joseph Smith and either taught or implied by evolutionary theism, quantum spirituality, New Age, Luciferianism, and transhumanism that there is neither living supernatural Holy God nor heavenly realm outside of the space-time dimension. There is only the natural dimension in process of evolution where progress means that children may choose their own race and gender:

"The state of Delaware is poised to adopt what is known as “Regulation 225.” Approved both by the Delaware State Education Association and Gov. John Carney, Regulation 225 would safeguard children’s “protected characteristics,” such as gender, age, race, sexual orientation and gender identity.” (Barbara Kay: Delaware Students Can Now Choose Their Own Race. This Should End Well” National Post, Feb. 13, 2018)

Naturalism is held in common by paganism, mystical pantheism and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-Biblical – but more specifically, non-Genesis account (creation ex nihilo) – thought systems.

At the heart of ancient and contemporary naturalism is monism, which refers to the view that pre-existent or spontaneously generated matter is the Ultimate Substance of which the universe and all things are made, therefore as the ancient Hermetic magic formula decrees, "as above, so below," meaning ‘all is one.’

In his book, "The God of Sex: How Spirituality Defines Your Sexuality," Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthXchange, writes that pagan monism is a,

"…mystical, unitive experience, a state in which distinctions disappear and opposites are joined. Androgyny, on a sexual level, reflects and confirms such an experience." (Ibid, p.79)

Writing during the student revolution of the 1960s, Francis Schaeffer that saw a transformation of consciousness, or closing of the heart to Jesus Christ was already permeating and overtaking the Western mindset, moving it away from the Christian ideal to the pagan model:

"Some forms of homosexuality today...are a philosophic expression...a denial of the antithesis. It has led in this case to an obliteration of the distinction between man and woman. So the male and the female as complimentary partners are finished." (The God of Sex: How Spirituality Defines Your Sexuality, Dr. Peter Jones, pp. 78-79)

 Under the unitive influence of monism male and female distinctions drain into androgyny, hence the use of toddlers, older children and even babies for the sexual satisfaction of adults is not only tolerated but prized, hence the pagan sage Xenophon declared:

"I must now speak of pederasty, for it affects education." (The One and the Many, Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 73)

Now that the Supreme Court has redefined marriage to accommodate homosexual (two-in-ones) love, the use of babies and children for the sexual satisfaction of adults looms large:

"Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals" Already, "Sex offender laws protecting children have been challenged in several states including California, Georgia and Iowa. Sex offenders claim the laws prohibiting them from living near schools or parks are unfair because it penalizes them for life."  (That was FAST: Yesterday it was gay marriage; Now look who wants “equal rights” Ashley Edwardson, allenbwest.com, June 27, 2015

John W. Whitehead, a constitutional attorney and founder and president of The Rutherford Institute is the author of ‘Battlefield America: The War on the American People.’ In a well-sourced article on The Rutherford Institute, Whitehead alerts us to alarming and horrific facts about child sex-trafficking in the U.S.:   

"Sex trafficking—especially the buying and selling of young girls—is the fastest growing business in organized crime (CBS Austin) and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally, after drugs and guns (WGBH).  Why?  Because, as investigative journalist Amy Fine Collins points out, it is ‘more lucrative and much safer to sell malleable teens than drugs or guns.  A pound of heroin or an AK-47 can be retailed once, but a young girl can be sold 10 to 15 times a day.”  (Child Sex Trafficking is the Fastest Growing Criminal Business in the U.S., Dr. Eowyn, The Olive Branch Report, Feb. 15, 2018)

The USSC’s legalization of same sex marriage means there will be no logical end-point as to where such affective attachments could lead—transgender mating, incest, pederasty, pedophilia, sado-masochistic homosexuality, polygamy, and eventually zoophilia.  And everyone will be obliged to conform:

"If you don’t believe that Caitlyn Jenner is a woman, you’re the worst kind of hateful. If you think a child deserves a mother and a father, you are a bigot. If you think a gender-dysphoric boy should not be treated as a girl, you’re evil. If you think a man should use the men’s restroom, regardless of what sex he thinks he is, you are discriminatory. If you think parents’ desire to get their children counseling help for their same-sex attraction is okay, you’re very dangerous. If your church teaches that homosexual sexual activity is wrong, your church is bigoted." (Is America Running Out of Patience with LGBT Activism? Glenn Stanton, Public Discourse, Feb. 13, 2018)

Since our culture is thoroughly sexualized and there are already few, if any, sexual moral standards, the generally amoral and dehumanized view of life communicated to the nation's children in nationwide school curricula via evolutionary science and obscene sex education classes is fated to descend into deeper and deeper levels of chaotic darkness.

Though heralded as a great victory for progressive forces, the Supreme Court ruling actually represents a great inversion and reversal of reality:

"Augustine in his City of God vividly describes the 5th century pagan “games” offered in honor of Tanit, the celestial “virgin” and mother of the gods. He also describes the public display of the goddess’s homosexual priests. “They were seen yesterday, their hair moist, their faces covered in make-up, their limbs flaccid, their walk effeminate, wandering through the squares and streets of Carthage, demanding from the public the means to subsidize their shameful life.”  (The Body Politic is Queer, Dr. Peter Jones, truthxchange, June 26, 2015)

Together with Decadence Festivals, Burning Man, and Electronic Trance Festivals are contemporary versions of the decadent parades witnessed by Augustine:

The difference is that often at the head of our parades are ordained “Christian” ministers. In some ways the apostate church is leading the culture. Indeed, it is the homosexual “theologians” who really understand the logic behind this cultural movement. Episcopal LGBTQ advocate Marie Alford-Harkey stresses the need for more bisexual-friendly churches, which celebrate sexual diversity through the mediums of preaching and worship, proposing “the Queer God who challenges the oppressive powers of heterosexual orthodoxy…[in order] to liberate God from the closet of traditional Christian thought.” In other words, inclusive churches are not simply accommodating practice but developing a whole new theory of theology and community." (Dr. Jones)

Creation Ex Nihilo, the Incarnation: Repugnant to Nature Systems

"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14

Due to the belief that physical matter is evil, the revolutionary impact of the Christian teaching about creation ex nihilo and the Incarnation was nothing less than a scandal for ancient pagan sages just as it is for 'new' pagan evolutionary naturalists, whether "Christian," New Age or secular.

Molnar writes that it was inconceivable to nature sages that the Divine One Substance should assume materiality,

"a thought as distasteful to their contemporaries as the idea of creation ex nihilo, which meant that matter too was God's creation..." (p. 26-27) 

 In company with ancient pagan sages, Western evolutionary cosmogonies reject creation ex nihilo and the Incarnation. While faithful Christians adhere to the fact that Christ's birth was the result of a miraculous conception, that Mary was a virgin yet still conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18), according to the Encyclopedia of Mormonism,

"Jesus Christ is not the Father of the spirits who have taken or yet shall take bodies upon this earth, for He is one of them. He is The Son, as they are sons and daughters of Elohim." (4:1676; Mormonism Research Ministry)

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like unto corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things."   Romans 1:21-26, 28-29

Putting all of this together, the first great stumbling block for all ancient and modern evolutionary nature systems is that they cannot account for the ultimate origin of life. This is why contemporary naturalists such as SETI researcher Paul Davies and Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the DNA molecule, have rejected abiogenesis, the ridiculous idea that matter spontaneously generated itself from nothing, in favor of panspermia.

Panspermia is the idea that life on earth was accidentally seeded by meteorites containing the essential building blocks of life or perhaps by highly evolved extraterrestrials from deep space that for billions of years have been guiding the evolution of man. The extraterrestrial idea was favored by Arthur C. Clarke in his book, "Childhood's End" and a variation on this theme has recently been advanced by Davies, Crick, and Ralph Pudritz of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.

Crick however admits that panspermia only pushes the unresolvable problem out into deep space:

"This scenario still leaves open the question of who designed the designer [aliens] – how did life originally originate?" (Crick, Life Itself: Its Origin and Nature, 1981)

The second great stumbling block follows from the first: the inability to account for conscious life, more specifically, personhood, or the soul of man.  This is why cognitive scientist Daniel Dennett, one of the Four Horsemen of Atheism, claims there really is no you, that soul, spirit and will are illusions caused by chemical interactions in the brain while his partner in nihilism, naturalist Tom Wolfe proclaims,

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

In stark contrast, the Revealed Word of God easily accounts for origin of life, conscious life and the two sexes:

"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 had followed St. Augustine (AD 354-430) in affirming that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent Triune God then it logically follows that each human being is a person---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. Thus a human life is a soul that informs inert matter. Therefore a body without a soul is no more than a disorganized mass of cells that would quickly deconstruct.  The citadel of the soul is spirit, the seat of reason, conscience, memory and will.  In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person.  Moreover, spirit allows man to spiritually transcend the natural dimension in order to access the supernatural dimension, thereby allowing him to enter into a personal relationship with the Spirit of God. Through this relationship, man's conscience is cleansed over time, thus enabling him to more perfectly orient the manner of his existence in this world in preparation for eternity.

A third stumbling block of ancient and modern evolutionary cosmogonies is the inability to account for the two created sexes, male and female, since all life somehow emerged out of genderless physical or spiritualized matter. Thus like their ancient counterparts, all modern nature systems, so-called Christian and otherwise, are fated to give way before the demands of gender-neutral homosexuality (androgyny) or queer.

By whatever label – homosexual, gay, lesbian, man-boy-lover, transgender, drag queen, drag king, or bi-sexual – androgyny and the world’s evolutionary nature systems go together like a hand and glove. Prior to Jesus Christ's earthly ministry pagan sages generally taught and practiced some form of gender-neutrality in keeping with their belief that matter is the gender-free "one substance" out of which all things emerged. But when Jesus Christ – fully man-fully God – walked this earth, nature sages came face to face with the awful Truth that the personal God really exists, and further, that He really did create just two distinct sexes, male and female.

Just as pre-flood men and post-flood nature sages and temple priests had exchanged the truth about the Holy God of Revelation for a lie (Romans 1:25-27) so have their modern "scientifically enlightened" counterparts--- secular pagan and occult pantheists and their evolutionary 'Christian' counterparts throughout countless universities, colleges and seminaries,:

"...chartered with a strong commitment to orthodox Christianity, only to erode first into liberalism and ultimately to secularism. Why did this happen? There are multiple, complex reasons for the apostasy of such institutions, but one key factor is the desire of professors to be intellectually recognized in the academic world. A slavish genuflection to the latest trends in academia seduces our leaders into conformity. One apologist once described this pattern as the “treason of the intellectuals”. If the secular establishment ridicules such tenets as the inspiration of the Bible, then insecure Christian professors, desperate to be accepted by their peers, quickly flee from orthodoxy, dragging the colleges, seminaries, and ultimately the churches with them. It is a weighty price to pay for academic recognition."  (The Treason of the Intellectuals, R.C. Sproul, Evangelical Lap Dogs, Table Talk, Nov. 2002, p. 6)

The Fall of Man

Like pre-flood antediluvians and post-flood pagans, modern progressives and their evolutionary theist counterparts have fallen into depravity, stupidity, idolatry, nature worship and evil. 

Early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and a haughty spirit preceded man's fall. A haughty spirit led them to disregard the supernatural things of the Holy God and seek in preference lower things here in the natural dimension.

The truth as to this evil said Athanasius,

"...is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul "which, materialized by forgetting God," and engrossed in lower things (i.e. matter, chemicals, DNA) "makes them into gods" and thereby "descends into a hopeless depth of delusion and superstition" whereby "they ceased to think that anything existed beyond what is seen (naturalism).... so turning away and forgetting that she was made in the image of the good God...sees no longer the Word after whose likeness she is made...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Ideas have consequences. For Mormonism – as with evolutionary theism and its secular pagan and pantheist permutations – the predisposing corruption resides in foundational ideations. Thus in the rejection of the supernatural Triune God and His Genesis account of creation ex nihilo resides the inability to account for the origin of life, of man's soul/spirit, immutable truth, moral absolutes, fixed meaning, and the true causes of evil in this world of suffering. (Psalm 115:4-8) With the rejection of the Incarnation comes the inability to logically account for and defend the two sexes and traditional marriage. Thus the fate of Mormonism together with evolutionary theism and its’ evolutionary counterparts is to not only fall into relativism, depravity, stupidity, confusion, superstition, chaos and idolatry but to give way to the demands of unrestrained libido – including the use of children for the sexual gratification of adults. And these are the crimes against nature, said Augustine, which are the crimes,

"of the men of Sodom (and if) all nations in the world committed them they would all stand guilty of the same crime against the Law of God, which did not design men so that they should use each other this way." (Confessions of St. Augustine, p. 49)

Jeremiah 51:57---When the Wicked are Given Over to Madness

For over eighty-five years, America has been incrementally conquered by the same madness and murder inducing demon of hatred and violence that earlier took over Russia, China, Germany, and Italy.

This demon is embodied in "scientifically enlightened" rank and file evolutionary humanists,  America's ruling class, and their  masters---Western transnational planetary citizens.  The last two groups are deeply infected by many delusions.  One is that America's true source of evil is always on the Right. A second is 'scientific' naturalism, a form of magic thinking that imagines the universe made itself and man invented God.  Cosmic evolution is an invention of imagination, an invention more terrible and more destructive than has ever been presented in the ordinary course of nature. It imagines that life somehow emerged out of nonlife, that man is not created in the spiritual image of God the Father but is rather a soulless, mindless ex-ape of evolution. It imagines there is no sin, no hell, no Divine Judgement, thus Leftist Naturalists and their allies are free to be evil.

The evil creed of Leftist Naturalists – identity politics –  rejects the idea of the one human race created by Elohim together with the fall, individual accountability and individual freedom, and establishes in their place group privileges based on the spurious idea of a genetically evolved racial/gender hierarchy  consisting of many distinct races and genders:

“These hierarchies are based on the malicious premise that whites, heterosexuals and males are oppressors and - in the words of the Democratic platform - America is a society governed by “systemic racism,” which needs to be fundamentally transformed.”  (The War Against Trump, David Horowitz, Frontpage Magazine, March 8, 2017)

The Mad-Hatter idea of a racial/gender hierarchy is fully incorporated within Sweden's intersectional feminist government. What is "intersectional" feminism?

"It is a species of feminism that, in accordance with the relatively new academic concept of "intersectionality," accepts a hierarchy whereby other "victim groups" -- such as "people of color" and Muslims -- are higher up on the grievance ladder than women, and whereby women who belong to those other groups enjoy an even more exalted status as victims than white female Christians or Jews." (Feminism, Swedish Style, Bruce Bawer, Gatestone Institute, Feb. 8, 2018)

Having rejected the Triune God and Biblically grounded religious heritage of our civilization, naturalists embrace instead an ancient order of pagan and pantheist beliefs of which Babylon, Communism, Socialism, and Luciferianism are logical expressions.  A Godless new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the still remaining remnants of Western European and America's Christian-based culture and all who defend it 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 neo-pagan scientific naturalism is "the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  It is pagan 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)

"... since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, He gave them up to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done."  Romans 1:28 "I will make her princes and her wise men drunk, Her governors, her prefects and her mighty men, That they may sleep a perpetual sleep and not wake up," Declares the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.  (Jeremiah 51:57)

Those who are destitute of a love for truth and within whom apostasy and the mystery of lawlessness have commenced the Lord of Hosts rejects as godless, wicked, and worthless.  Thus He takes from them their power of discerning the true from the false so that with their  consciences depraved they fall into greater madness and wickedness.  In this way their wickedness is punished by wickedness. Upon such people the wrath of God rests (Romans 1:18). 

America's wicked 'elite' ruling class' and its global masters hate Jehovah God and are obviously mad (moral imbeciles), wicked, and debauched. 

Genesis 1: 1 "In the beginning God created... "   

"You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you." Nehemiah 9:6

"Man is said to be made in God's image," said St. Thomas Aquinas, "insofar as the image implies an intelligent being endowed with free-will and self-movement." (Fallen Images, Robert P. George, Touchstone, May 2003, p. 15)

The biblical view of man is that while made in God's spiritual image, in contrast to God, man is fallen. His intellect, will and passions are disordered by sin even though sin does not obliterate his God-like powers of free will and intellect. Thus humans can, by God's grace, understand what is good and choose to do what is good, or turn away from God and willfully choose to do what they know to be wrong.

Most research analysts of the new paganism and its destructive "isms" and "magic science" agree that it emerged out of the Renaissance and that these spiritual poisons were undergirded and fueled by a willful rebellion against God, the fallen human condition and mortality.

By the time of the Enlightenment, God-haters realized that their only avenue of escape was by way of a delusional integration with nature. Lester Crocker explains:

"There existed in the eighteenth century a widespread desire to equate the moral with the physical world..." What was desired above all was "total integration of man in nature, with refusal of any transcendence, even though it was admitted that (being God's image-bearer) gave him certain special abilities and ways of thinking. The important thing, as La Mettrie, d'Holbach and others made clear, is that he is submitted to the same laws; everything is response to need — mechanically... like a tree or a machine. Man merely carries out natural forces — without any freedom whatsoever — in all he does, whether he loves or hates, helps or hurts, gives life or takes it." (Monsters from the Id, E. Michael Jones, pp. 5, 7)

In other words, from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment through to our own day, arrogant, defiant rebels have been saying to Jehovah, "you are not our Father."  Like a dog returns to its vomit they returned to the folly of pagan evolutionary idolatry, thus the 'best and brightest' say are "descended from a hairy quadruped, furnished with a tail and pointed ears," a species of monkey which in turn descended "through a long line of diversified forms" going back to something like the larvae of sea squirts (1) and some of us, the most superior, are evolving to the "omega point" of union with the divine monistic Void or perhaps Quantum Void.(2)

Early Church Father Athanasius explains both the human condition and the fatal consequences of rejecting our Creator in favor of idolatry (self-worship) and nature worship of matter, creative energy (evolution), water, fire, and air.

God has made man, and willed that he should abide in incorruption; but men, having despised and rejected the higher things and authority of God, devised and contrived evil for themselves, thereby receiving,

"... the condemnation of death with which they had been threatened; and from thenceforth no longer remained as they were made, but were being corrupted according to their devices; and death had the mastery over them as king." (On the Incarnation of the Word, Athanasius)

In willfully falling away from the knowledge of God and transgressing against His commandments, God gives them over to their wickedness and to madness.  This action  effectively turns them back to their natural state,

"....so that just as they have had their being out of nothing, so also, as might be expected, they might look for corruption into nothing in the course of time. For if, out of a former normal state of non-existence they were called into being by the Presence and loving-kindness of the Word, it followed naturally that when men were bereft of the knowledge of God and were turned back to what was not (for what is evil is not, but what is good is), they should, since they derive their being from God who IS, be everlastingly bereft even of being; in other words, that they should be disintegrated and abide in death and corruption. For man is by nature mortal, inasmuch as he is made out of what is not; but by reason of his likeness to Him that is (and if he still preserved this likeness by keeping Him in his knowledge) he would stay his natural corruption, and remain incorrupt; as Wisdom 6:18 says: “The taking heed to His laws is the assurance of immortality" but being incorrupt, he would live henceforth as God, to which I suppose the divine Scripture refers, when it says: “I have said you are gods, and you are all sons of the most Highest; but you die like men, and fall as one of the princes.”

The fool who has said in his heart, there is no God (Psalm 14:1), has effectively said to God, the Creator and sustainer of life and being, "you are not my Father." The rejection of Father God is for soul and its citadel, spirit (intellect, will) to disintegrate into the nothingness from which men have been called, thereby abiding increasingly in madness, death and corruption even though he or she still lives and is mainly blind to the effects of disintegration and madness.   In his Lord of the Rings trilogy, Tolkien ingeniously makes 'visible' the invisible process of disintegration and resulting madness with Grimma Wormtongue, Gollum and other decayed and decaying characters.

Our Lord and Savior, the Living Word Who spoke all things into existence from nothing has said:

"..... I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life..." Deuteronomy 30:19-20

The Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word become Flesh, Jesus Christ the Physician came to heal the spiritually sick. But whoever rejects the Physician, whether through indifference or outright denial, rejects His prescription, hence destroys him or herself.

Destruction however, does not mean annihilation of the soul as is commonly thought today. The soul though immortal, said St. Augustine, nevertheless suffers a kind of death when the living God forsakes it:

"...in that penal and everlasting punishment....the soul is...said to die because it does not live in connection with God (meaning that) though man does not cease to feel, yet because this feeling is neither sweet... nor wholesome (but) painfully penal, it is (called) death rather than life." (St. Augustine's City of God, Chapter 2, Of that Death Which Can Affect an Immortal Soul, and of that to Which the Body is Subject)

The Progressive Myth: Socialism, Psychopaths, Mean Nasty Girls, and America's Tyranny of Evil

"avoid irreverent babble (delusions and empty philosophizing of those who reject Jehovah), for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness"  (2 Tim. 2:16) "Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them." (Ephesians 5:11)

 Leftist Progressive Utopianism's most enduring myth is the delusional and self-refuting multi-faceted notion that man is born good despite that he is the uncreated product of revamped and revitalized Babylonian evolutionary idolatry. (Ezekiel 14:3) Even more incredible, man is somehow the slave of the Holy Triune God as well as of Biblically grounded Western tradition and culture even though Leftists claim He does not exist and cruelly ridicule those who worship Him as Lord and Savior.  Yet according to these babblers if human-apes of evolution are liberated from their slavery to the nonexistent God and Western tradition and culture, their innate goodness will fully manifest itself.

In support of Leftism's most enduring delusion are three more. First, enlightened yet spiritually dead Leftist Progressive Utopians and the City of Man they are building are evolving ever upward toward apotheosis and a communist or socialist paradise on earth, a 'new' Babylon.  Second, science, technology, and the divine life-making energy (serpent power) known as evolution have brought the enlightened yet morally depraved, deeply deluded 'Best and Brightest' to the brink of ending all suffering, in particular, death itself. And finally, enlightened reprobates are gaining control over evil.  Reality says otherwise:

"Communism has been tried for more than 100 years by hundreds of millions of people, and the results are always the same: Its fruits are death, destruction, and despair. Its leading figures were cynical and sly men who masked their hatred of humanity with high-sounding words. By any measure, they were as dark and sinister as could be."  (Dead End of Communism, The Epoch Times)

For more than 100 years, Leftist Progressive Utopianism has been a spellbinding force for modern Gnostic God-and-human hating power and vengeance seekers, the criminally minded, wishful thinkers, the emotionally unstable; rebellious, resentful, ungrateful youth and mean, nasty, empyty-headed girls and queen bees:

"This weekend women across the country are dusting off their pussyhats for another march for women...These self-proclaimed defenders of women’s rights hold on to their bottomless pit of hatred against the president despite their own leaders being exposed as exploiters of other women. These empty headed mean girls of every age bully conservative women and emasculate all the men in their lives then march to whine about their oppression. All the while ignoring honor violence, sexual slavery, female genital mutilation, human trafficking and real oppression of women. These spoiled angry, unhappy and uninformed ladies of luxury, who wear pink hats and invisible blinders, epitomize the failure of the feminist movement."  (Mean Girls, Nasty Women & Queen Bees, Dawn Perlmutter, Frontpage Magazine, Jan. 19, 2018). 

C.E.M Joad, a 20th century philosopher had been among the ranks of the spellbound and spent most of his life embracing Progressive myths and loudly proclaiming his distate for the supernatural Triune God.  However, the catastrophic events, genocide and other monstrous crimes against humanity committed by Marxist Communists and National Socialists empowered by Western Progressive financiers during the 20th century finally wore down Joad's delusional optimism:

"...the power that...Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or communist power but...the power of the international financial coterie." (Dr. Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, p. 954)

As he witnessed so-called "enlightened" Progressives, Marxists and other like-minded disciples of depravity make the same stupid, discouraging and outright evil choices over and over again, commit the same hideous crimes against humanity over and over again, and rationalize their evil wickedness over and over again, Joad was forced to conclude that his faith in man was wrong and Progressive myths rendered utterly implausible by the catastrophic and genocidal events of the twentieth century.  

Joad concluded that it is because Progressives and their like-minded counterparts rejected,

".... the doctrine of original sin that we on the Left were always being disappointed; disappointed by the refusal of people to be reasonable, by the subservience of intellect to emotion, by the failure of true Socialism to arrive, by the behavior of nations and politicians, by the masses' preference for Hollywood to Shakespeare and for Mr. Sinatra to Beethoven; above all, by the recurrent fact of war."  (The Deadliest Monster, J.F. Baldwin, p. 97)

Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957), renowned English crime writer, poet, playwright, essayist, translator and Christian humanist concurs:

"The people who are most discouraged and made despondent by the barbarity and stupidity of human behavior are those who think highly of homo sapiens....and who still cling to an optimistic belief in the civilizing influence of progress and enlightenment." (ibid, p. 96)

 Spellbinding Progress and enlightenment myths were shown to be dangerous delusions In 1926 when 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 slavery to the Triune God and Western civilization as the Progressives claimed. In essence the Commissions findings agreed with Joad's conclusions upon his loss of faith in the Progressive myth.  The Commission 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."

The completely selfish and self-centered human can grow up to be far more evil than common delinquents.  Their narcissism can become so inflated, their conscience so depraved and hardened and their will so given to evil that the Triune God gives them over to reprobate minds (Romans 1: 18-28).  In clinical terms, they can become psychopaths.

Martha Stout has worked extensively with victims of psychopaths, and describes psychopaths as having no feelings of guilt or remorse no matter what they do.  Psychopaths have no,

"...  limiting sense of concern for the well-being of strangers, friends, or--family. Imagine no struggles with shame---no matter what kind of selfish, lazy, harmful, or immoral action (they take)."  The concept of responsibility is unknown to them, "except as a burden others seem to accept---like gullible fools."   They are not held back from any of their "desires by guilt or shame, and... are never confronted by others for (their) cold-bloodedness....(They) are completely free of internal restraints, and...unhampered liberty to do just as (they) please, with no pangs of conscience..." (Political Ponerology, Andrew M. Lobaczewski, pp. 10-11)

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."   (Leftism As Psychopathy, John Ray)

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 .

Psychpaths as  Omnipotent 'gods'

Omnipotence, in the case of Western "scientific and evolutionary" empowered psychopaths comes from imagining they possess power over the Holy Trinity and His Revealed Word so as to take for themselves the power of the Lord's own spoken Word.  Leftist delusions are then,

" interpreted and promulgated by the left in a quasi-divine manner as the secular word of God, which is why it is inimical to counter-argument and will not tolerate dissent.  It has proliferated in various forms and guises, theories and practices, right up to the present moment."  (The Left Will Always Be With Us, David Solway, American Thinker, Jan. 2018)

In this way they give their own words the active force of the Triune Gods creative words thereby allowing  them to unweave and refashion creation, reinvent human beings, paganize Scripture, and creatively destroy the family and society as desired.   Furthermore, they can decide who lives and who must die, what we may have or not have, how many children we may 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 hard-hearted 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 malignant 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, prominent 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)

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.

A tyranny of evil has spread itself over and across our country like a vast dark wing and we cannot understand its' manifestations---its' seething hatred of God and America's middle class---particularly white Conservatives and Christians---or its' treachery, cruelty, sadism, pathological lying, obscenity, perversity, blasphemy, and deliberate corruption of our children unless we return to our Heavenly Father and the Biblical view of man:

"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insight we have into the nature of man and of the crisis we find ourselves in..." (John Hallowell, The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George Nash, p. 53)

Man is not born good, as Leftist Progressives claim. Nor are man and society 'evolving' to some higher, more godlike spiritual state. This is pure fantasy from the pits of hell.. 

Without exception, evil cuts through the heart of every man and woman, thus no concept gives "deeper insight into the enigma that is man" than original sin. Evil is not just a "bad dream"  or "an accident of history." Nor is it the "creation of a few antisocial men" but rather 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." (ibid)

As a people, and more importantly as Christians who should know better, we have allowed ourselves to forget this---to our own and our children's peril.

Making Sin-Addicted Sub-Human Slaves: The Real Purpose of Modern Education in a Scientific Dictatorship

Hollywood, media, music industry, and political left-right Humanists are incapable of suspending their will-to-power, arrogant egotism fueled by an erroneous sense of 'moral' and 'intellectual' superiority or their scientism and evolution idolatry and a priori hatred of and contempt for President Trump, faithful Christians and Jews, middle class Conservatives, and the Christian-grounded America of its founding.  Thus they are incapable of objectively considering the possibility that the ideology they religiously affirm is an unholy mixture of fantasy, scientism, lies, and evil and that a Scientific Dictatorship (NWO)--a global conspiracy run by super wealthy Western Luciferians and other pagan and pantheist God-haters has been under construction since before the Bolshevik Revolution:

"Spirit cooking.Occult imagery outside meetings of the most powerful people in the world.  Bizarre rituals held at globally important events.  What perverted ideology animates those who control our global destiny?"

"Global insider Theodore Roosevelt Malloch, who has worked at the highest levels on Wall Street, at the United Nations, at elite universities like Yale and Oxford and served on the executive board of the World Economics Forum has a disturbing answer. It’s “Luciferianism.”  The E.U. is part, of course, of the globalist empire, the New World Order, and I think many of its origins are in fact quite evil…”  “And I think that we should talk about that.”   (Top Insider Exposes Luciferian Origin of Globalist Empire, WND, 12/25/2017)

Rather than attempt to reason with snobby, close-minded Humanists that this evil conspiracy exists and that they are its' egotistic and thought-controlled dupes, perhaps Bertrand Russell will succeed in this endeavor in his seminal work, 'The Impact Of Science On Society '(1952).  Russell is one of the past key players in and architects of the global Scientific Dictatorship. 

Scientific Techniques Behind ‘Murder of God,’ Destruction of Free Will and imago Dei

To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family tradition, national patriotism, and religious dogmas." "For many generations we have bowed our necks to the yoke of the conviction of sin. We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents.... There is something to be said... for gently putting aside the mistaken old ways of our elders if that is possible. If it cannot be done gently, it may have to be done roughly or even violently." ("The Re-Establishment of Peacetime Society," Feb. 1946, Brock Chisholm, first head of the World Health Organization)

Under the Dictatorship, all people---having been reduced by evolutionary thinking to something on a par with worms and apes--- are collectivized sub-human slaves of the State.  Since it is the population of sub-humans and their use of earths resources that are the cause of 'global change' absolute control over everything in society from resources such as food, water, and fossil fuel to the wills, thought-life, and emotions of sub-human slaves falls to a totalitarian mystical god-State that will annihilate the old order and enslave the worlds sub-human population in order to save planet earth.  In the absence of the Holy Triune God, God-hating Luciferians can---by the mere power of their wills---re-order both mankind and the entire world:

"There is no God and no soul. We, of course, say that we do not believe in God (and) eternal morality. That is moral that serves the destruction of the old society. Everything is moral which is necessary for the annihilation of the old exploiting social order and for uniting the proletariat."  (John Dewey, The Unseen Hand, A. Ralph Epperson, p. 298, 378-379)

 God-haters ranging from Hegel to Marx, Darwin, Freud, Nietzsche, Dewey, Bertrand Russell and contemporary Luciferians, among others,  have 'murdered' the Holy Triune God, deconstructed imago Dei, and taught lies as truth. Eric Voegelin comments:

"....the order of being (was) obliterated (and reinterpreted) as essentially under man's control." Taking control "requires the decapitation of being — the murder of God." (Eric Voegelin, "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," p. xv)

Separating 'Elites' from Sub-Humans

The Nazis, said Russell, were more advanced scientifically than the Communist rulers of Russia and if they had survived, would probably have soon taken to "scientific breeding" (abortion, euthanasia, eugenics) to separate elites from cannon fodder and other slaves:

" Any nation which adopts this practice will, within a generation, secure great military advantages. The system, one may surmise, will be something like this: except possibly in the governing aristocracy, all but 5 per cent of males and 30 per cent of females will be sterilised. The 30 per cent of females will be expected to spend the years from eighteen to forty in reproduction, in order to secure adequate cannon fodder. As a rule, artificial insemination will be preferred to the natural method ..."

Through selective breeding and dumbing-down of slave material, the "congenital differences between rulers and ruled" will gradually evolve until they become almost different species, making a revolt of stupefied slaves,

"...as unthinkable as an organised insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton." (pp. 49-50)

Russell does not pretend that birth control and abortion are the only ways in which the population of slaves can be kept from increasing:

"There are others, which, one must suppose, opponents of birth control would prefer. War, as I remarked a moment ago, has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. There would be nothing in this to offend the consciences of the devout or to restrain the ambitions of nationalists. The state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but what of that? Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people’s. However, I am wandering from the question of stability, to which I must return." (pp. 103-104)

There are three ways of securing a stable (sustainable) society as regards the slave population:

" The first is that of birth control, the second that of infanticide or really destructive wars, and the third that of general misery except for a powerful minority. All these methods have been practiced: the first, for example, by the Australian aborigines; the second by the Aztecs, the Spartans, and the rulers of Plato’s Republic; the third in the world as some Western internationalists hope to make it and in Soviet Russia ... Of these three, only birth control avoids extreme cruelty and unhappiness for the majority of human beings. Meanwhile, so long as there is not a single world government there will be competition for power among the different nations. And as increase of population brings the threat of famine, national power will become more and more obviously the only way of avoiding starvation."

To deal with the problem of increasing slave population and decreasing food supplies it will be necessary to find ways of controlling procreation:

" If this is to be done otherwise than by wars, pestilence, and famines, it will demand a powerful international authority. This authority should deal out the world’s food to the various nations in proportion to their population at the time of the establishment of the authority. If any nation subsequently increased its population it should not on that account receive any more food. The motive for not increasing population would therefore be very compelling. What method of preventing an increase might be preferred should be left to each state to decide.”

One primary method is the sexualization and homosexualization of the slave population, a goal backed by Americas' State Department and the former Obama administration:

"President Barack Obama...lectured Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta about his country's gay rights record. 'When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that's the path whereby freedoms begin to erode," Obama said at a joint press conference with the Kenyan leader in Nairobi. "And bad things happen." Under Kenyan law, sexual activity between men is illegal and punishable with a maximum imprisonment of 14 years. Many Kenyan leaders had encouraged Obama not to discuss gay rights on his first trip to the country as President. But Obama equated legalized discrimination of gays to legalized racism in America." (Obama lectures Kenyan president on gay rights. Kristen Holmes, Eugene Scott, cnn.com, July 25, 2015) 

There is nothing wrong with slavery said Russell.  After all, most civilized and semi-civilized countries known to history had a large class of slaves or serfs completely subordinate to their owners and there is nothing in human nature that makes the persistence of such a system impossible:

" And the whole development of scientific technique has made it easier than it used to be to maintain a despotic rule of a minority. When the government controls the distribution of food, its power is absolute so long as they can count on the police and the armed forces. And their loyalty can be secured by giving them some of the privileges of the governing class. I do not see how any internal movement of revolt can ever bring freedom to the oppressed in a modern scientific dictatorship." (p. 54)

Scientific Techniques for the Making of Slaves

The Scientific Dictatorship controls and shapes the wills, thoughts, and emotions of its sub-human slaves through various thought, emotion and behavior modification techniques.   Among these are the rationalization of evil as something 'progressive’ and ‘forward-thinking,’ unfettered vice as freedom of expression, nihilist philosophies solidified in mass delusion, and modern education.  According to Russell, the real purpose of education is collective mass psychology for destruction of free will:

" Fitche laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished ... Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible ..."

Therefore said Russell, I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology:

" Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called 'education.' Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part ... It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment."   (pp. 40-41)

Russell predicted that 'education' would make great strides when taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship:

"The social psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results will soon be arrived at. First, that the influence of home is obstructive. Second, that not much can be done unless indoctrination begins before the age of ten. Third, that verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective. Fourth, that the opinion that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity. But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would cost to make them believe it is dark gray."

Although the science of thought and behavior modification will be diligently studied and practiced, said Russell, it will be rigidly confined to, hence the secret gnosis of the governing class:

" The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen."

For more than seventy years the creation of sub-human slaves and 'cannon fodder' has been one of the primary goals of global Luciferian socialists. Toward the end of WW II conservative Anthony Harrigan warned that America’s degenerate ruling class was forcing the acceptance of pornography, 

"as medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion...Though the life of the country is basically decent, Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class which...is conducting us to ruin." This class of degenerates seeks to raise up a "liberal-bred barbarian" motivated by a "destructive impulse" unchecked by "traditional values and restraints," in order to destroy America from within." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash,, pp. 39-40)

Todays' Humanist-bred barbarians are the product of an ongoing, thoroughly evil program of psychological manipulation previously utilized by Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin and the Communists after they seized control of Orthodox Christian Russia and put into practice long-term plans to abolish on a vast scale every vestige of belief in and commitment to the God of Revelation, family, morality, private property, and other signs of the capitalist petite Bourgeoisie.

The success of this programmatic evil is on display today in mindless, hysterical hatred of Pres. Trump and his supporters, in dangerous calls for white genocide and the murder of police, and in other dangerous, violent and destructive acts committed mainly by insane Humanist barbarians.  

According to longtime Hollywood insider and ex-liberal Evan Sayet the very purpose of the modern liberal is the total destruction of everything that God, Christianity, true science, and Western civilization has ever created:

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

Stealthily underlying and fueling the mindless hate and destructive, murderous impulses driving degenerate Humanist fanatics is the revolt of Luciferian globalists against the Holy Triune God and their insatiable craving for a Godless socialist vision, an impossible sinners paradise:

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

  In “Liberal Treason Explained: ‘The Kindergarten of Evil,’ conservative writer Jim O’Neill writes that John Lennon’s song “Imagine” nicely sums up the Humanist and Luciferian fantasy:

“…..no heaven, no hell, no religion, no countries, no possessions, ‘nothing to kill or die for’ (no right, no wrong), no past, no future (all the people living for today’). (O’Neill, Canada Free Press, Oct. 29, 2012)

Progressive Yearnings of Luciferians

The Lord's Old Testament prophet Isaiah sees the Evil One--the devil who was Lucifer before his fall-- standing behind the Kings of his time.  Today these Kings are globalist Luciferians.  Isaiah gives five goals that Lucifer staked out for himself.  Each one begins with 'I will,' meaning that whatever the sheer power of will wants it can achieve.  The five goals of the devil, with some modifications, are now the progressive yearnings of Luciferians:

"I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of the assembly in the recesses of the north.  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High."  (Isaiah 14:13-14)

A major modification to Lucifer’s goals is that Luciferians do not want to make themselves like the Holy Triune God but like the Evil One.  This is because they hate the Lord, thus the path they have chosen is Satanic revolt, or war against the Trinity...the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which in Bakunin's words are the "cursed and fatal principle of authority.” Thus Luciferians proclaim the reign of nothingness, though a nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of evil personified...the evil Lord of this world.  Thus the sentiment of the revolt is satanic pride:

which spurns subjection to any master whatever, whether of divine or human origin." (Bakunin, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 63)

But the Lord laughs at Luciferians because He sees their day is coming.(Psalm 37:13)  Just as the devil is already defeated, so are impenitent Luciferians and their sub-human followers.  All of them are already defeated and when the Evil One is cast into the lake of fire and brimstone all of his seed--humans bearing the mark of the beast (Rev. 13:16; 16:2), will also be cast into the lake on the final day of judgment:

"Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.”  Jeremiah 30:23, KJB

The fact of God's Wrath upon the impenitent children of disobedience is clearly revealed in the Scriptures:

 "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; but he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him" (John 3:36). "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men" (Rom. 1:18). "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience" (Eph. 5:6).”  (The Wrath of God,  Arthur W. Pink

2 Thessalonians 2: When the Day of Grace is Over

In Hosea 4:17 it is recorded that our Lord said, “Ephraim is joined unto idols, let him alone.”

 There comes a time, said John MacArthur, when the Lord abandons men.  He lets pride-hardened idolaters go to the consequences of their own sinful choices--- will-to-power, useless ideologies, relativism, anti-creation evolutionary cosmogonies, scientism as an instrument of man's will, occultism, spiritism, transgender as valid 'gender,' and pederasty, sodomy, and lesbianism as alternative lifestyles. The pride-hardened have refused to accept His counsel.  They spurned all His reproof, as Proverbs says, so now they will eat the rotten fruit of their own choices.

 Like the Pharisees they will have to be satisfied with the useless choices, ideologies, and occult devices they prefer, thus Jesus seals their doom with the most terrifying words of all,

“Let them alone.”  Matthew 15:14 (A Nation Abandoned by God, John MacArthur)

It’s a frightening thing to think about that. It's frightening to think that you might be abandoned by the Holy God, that the opportunity for salvation is past, that the day of grace is over, that at the same time grace is withdrawn the gates of hell swing open and delusion envelopes and darkens the minds of the abandoned:

 "....and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness." 2 Thessalonians 2: 10-12 

  Let them alone, for in righteous judgment the Lord has sent them strong delusion that by their wicked actions the wicked will fall into greater wickedness that their sin be punished by sin.  Thus the judgment of the Lord is that they should believe lies.   Being destitute of the love of the truth, they are necessarily led to believe lies.  While their minds are open to all manner of falsehood, stupidity, depravity and delusion they are tightly sealed within an impenetrable bubble closed to the Light of Truth.    So "Let them alone, they are blind leaders of the blind."

Revelation 2:7

In "Papacy in Collapse: "The Crisis of the Bergoglio Party (which will leave the Church devastated) has begun" 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 'progressives' and 'traditionalists;' between adherents of change, science, evolutionary conceptions, abortion, women and 'gay' priests, and openness to nature religions and ideologies 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, Dr. Peter Jones, p. 17)

Chaos, confusion and devastating crisis of faith are not unique to the Roman Catholic Church.  This toxic virus 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 Protestant Evangelical church. (Crisis Magazine, June, 2014)

For instance, among unworkable church-growth tactics employed by the Roman Catholic Church  is the strategy of countering secularism by accommodating the Church to the secular culture and its' idolization of science and evolution.  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 (traditionalists) out of the church in favor of younger, culturally-saturated, spiritually and morally immature members. These actions give birth to Christless Christianity and 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)

A further consequence is that 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)

Dr. R. Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, concurs.  Dr. Mohler 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)

Thus we are witnessing the secularization, paganization and evaporation of orthodox Biblical theism to which must be added rebellion against every vestige of authority, deconstruction of the Genesis account and 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 with an anti-orthodox Christian consciousness that is already well developed. Tolerance has been perverted into a radical secularism that is wholly open to worldly bread---'gay' marriage and sodomy, abortion as legalized 'choice,' perverse sex education for children, centering prayer and other occult practices, Baphomet, Satanism, sorcery, Wicca, magic, nudity, pornography and Decadence Festivals but intolerant of God's Word, His Authority, Moral Law and sexual ethics:

"But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."  Matthew 4:4

The post-Christian mind is closed to the eternally unchanging transcendent 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, big bang-gods, mystical passion-gods, Omegas, Yogic Christs, Christ-consciousness, gods-of-reason or some other idol.

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.

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
