In "Is the God of the Old Testament a Moral Monster? An Interview with Dick Belcher," Michael J. Kruger observes that one of the most common objections to biblical authority is that the God of the Bible is guilty of committing immoral acts:
" God appears to advocate, endorse, and even commit acts that are normally seen as morally questionable. The classic example is the command to the Israelites to wipe out the Canaanites as they enter into the promised land....In fact, it is the question of whether God endorses genocide that features heavily in the objections of atheist Richard Dawkins in his book The God Delusion (Mariner Books, 2008). It is also a prominent theme in Peter Enns’ book, The Bible Tells Me So...." (michaeljkruger.com, Mar. 9, 2015)
When the personal Triune God, the Creator of everything seen and unseen ex nihilo brings judgment upon the Canaanites through the actions of the Israelis is He simply being cruel and sadistic? And what of the Canaanites? Were they good people undeserving of what befell them? And just who were the Canaanites of the post-flood world?
Similar to 20th century God-hating Communists and National Socialists and the orgy of violence, destruction, theft, and wholesale murder they committed, Josephus relates that before the flood, even while Adam was alive,
"....it came to pass that the posterity of Cain became exceeding wicked, every one successively dying, one after the other, more wicked than the former. They were intolerable in war, and vehement in robberies; and if any one were slow to murder people, yet was he bold in his profligate behavior, in acting impatiently, in acting unjustly, and doing injuries for gain." (Josephus 1.2.2)
At this point the pre-flood world grew totally apostate. Only Noah and his immediate family stood firm in their zeal for the Holy Creator God:
"...Noah was very uneasy at what they did; and being displeased at their conduct, persuaded them to change their dispositions and their acts for the better: but seeing they did not yield to him, but were slaves to their wicked pleasures, he was afraid they would kill him, together with his wife and children, and those they had married; so he departed out of that land." (Josephus 2.3.1)
The pre-flood wicked served other gods,
".... and they forgot the Lord who had created them....And every man made his god and they bowed down to them....and forsook the Lord all the days of Enosh and his children." (Jasher 2:4-5)
Canaanites were not atheists but idolaters who believed the evil one's lie that the Holy Creator God was a creative force that through practice of magic allowed them to evolve into gods after the death of their bodies. The primordial anti-creation model is very similar to modern anti-creation evolutionary models such as the Quantum Vacuum, a recent addition to the West's line-up of secularized, mathematical anti-creation cosmogonies reaching back to 1300 in the heart of Christendom. The secularized, mathematical model is,
"..entirely stripped of the supernatural (and grounded in a secular pagan understanding) of nature, science and philosophy that laid down the presuppositions on which Scripture scholarship came to rest...Little (can be) understood about the rise of modern biblical criticism if close attention is not paid to the great cosmological shift that occurs in the seventeenth century...The two occur as part of one revolution because the shift in the meaning of nature includes human nature as well." ( Politicizing the Bible: The Roots of Historical Criticism and the Secularization of Scripture, 1300-1700, Wiker & Hahn, p. 257
In “The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition,” James Herrick writes that modern physicists claim to have irrefutable scientific proof for the 'other spirituality,' meaning evolutionary pantheism. (p. 160)
For example, in the “Quantum Society,” physics writers Danah Zohar and Ian Marshall advocate a new occult science of pantheism, psychology and sociology grounded in a breathtaking range of practical implications in the,
“…fundamental physics that underlies all else that is in the universe” lending itself to a holistic understanding that “the nature of the mind, the nature of society, and the nature of nature are all one and the same thing…linked by a common physics.” (ibid, p. 170-171)
Zohar and Marshal also find that when physicists probe the deep recesses of the universe they are confronted by a void, an indefinite and seemingly infinite field of energy that they call the ‘quantum vacuum,” a background without features that seems empty yet is where all physical objects originate:
“All the waves and particles that we can see and measure, literally, as in the Greek, ex-ist or ‘stand out from’ an underlying sea of potential that physicists have named the vacuum….just as waves undulate on the sea.” This ‘sea’ of proto-physicality is an “all pervasive, underlying field of potential…the vacuum.” (ibid, p. 172)
The ‘quantum vacuum’ is strikingly similar to some Hindu and Buddhist anti-creation accounts of the origins of physical objects as emanations from the One and/or the Void. Nor do Zohar and Marshall deny the similarity:
“The vacuum spoken of by quantum physicists, like the Buddhist concept of Sunyata, or the Void, to which it is so similar, is replete with potentiality.” (ibid)
According to these pre-flood and post-flood conceptions there is no heaven or hell nor any need of repentance and salvation since by magic science and man's own abilities, all men will eventually evolve into godhood:
"In this way...by magic, which is indeed only a second idolatry, wherein they pretend after death they become demons, just as they were supposed in the first and literal idolatry to become gods." Tertullian Treatise on the soul 57
The evolution of man into superman has been the practice of Freemasonry for years. It was also the practice of Masonry’s religious and philosophical progenitors, the ancient pagan Mystery cults. Masonic scholar W.L. Wilmshurst provides a summation of this core precept:
"This--the evolution of man into superman--was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries, and the real purpose of modern Masonry is, not the social and charitable purposes to which so much attention is paid, but the expediting of the spiritual evolution of those who aspire to perfect their own nature and transform it into a more god-like quality. And this is a definite science, a royal art, which it is possible for each of us to put into practice; whilst to join the Craft for any other purpose than to study and pursue this science is to misunderstand its meaning. "(Darwinism and the Rise of Gnosticism, Phillip D. Collins, June 2, 2005)
Like their pre-flood and post-flood counterparts, Freemasonry rejects the belief in man’s creation by the personal Holy Trinity. This contention is clearly articulated in the constitution of the Great Council of Turkey, which was organized by 33rd Degree Masons:
"In a very early age and according to an inorganic process, organic life came to be. In order to produce cellular organisms cells came together in groups. Later, intelligence sprang forth and human beings were born. But from where? We keep asking ourselves this question. Was it from God's breathing over formless mud? We reject the explanation of an abnormal kind of creation; a kind of creation that excludes man. Since life and its genealogy exist, we must follow the philogenetic line and feel, understand and acknowledge that a wheel exists that explains this great deed, that is the act of "leap." We must believe that there was a phase of development in which there was a great rush of activity that caused life to pass at a particular moment from that phase to another." (ibid)
In the post-flood world prior to Abraham, there existed in the land of Syria-Palestine a very high culture, dominated by the kingdom of Ebla:
"By the latter part of the Early Bronze Age Ebla (Tell Mardikh) in northwestern Syria had become a city-state of 260,000 people, with lesser "vassal" cities forming a far-reaching empire. It was the center of a vast commercial network, and records of its enterprises contain the earliest mention of such biblical cities as Salim, Megiddo, Gaza, Hazor, Lachish, and Joppa. An indication of the city's sophisticated planning is the audience court of the royal palace, which both architecturally and functionally mediates the space between the quarters with private residences and those with administrative offices." (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, Revised ed., Geoffrey W. Bromiley (ed), Eerdmans:1979, p.707; christianthinktank.com)
But then sudden and violent destruction occurred throughout much of the ancient world ca. 2300-2100 B.C:
"Palestinian civilization returned to the village level, with many E.B. sites abandoned and others left unfortified, a situation that continued through the early stages of the Middle Bronze period (until ca. 1950 B.C.). While many factors may have been involved, especially significant were Egyptian raids and mass population movements, at the center of which were the Amorites." (ibid)
The Semitic Amorites were a violent, blood-thirsty war-culture. In Mesopotamian sources they are the mar-tu (Sumerian) and amurru (Akkadian), both of which words mean "west," and they are referred to as desert people who "know not grain." In the third millennium B.C.,
"the conquests of Sargon of Akkad (2371-2316) extended to "the upper sea," meaning that he must have marched west to the Mediterranean. In the second millennium the Amorites established their First Dynasty in Babylon in which Hammurabi (1792-1750) was the most famous king; contemporary with that dynasty there were Amorite kings in Mari on the Middle Euphrates. At Jericho and other sites in Canaan cultural changes toward the end of the third millennium suggest the influx of new nomadic tribal people, probably Amorites. According to Ezekiel 16:3 Jerusalem was founded by a combination of Amorites and Hittites. Under Moses the Israelites found the Amorites in the hill country around Kadesh-barnea (Deut. 1:19-20), then conquered two Amorite kings, Sihon and Og, in Transjordan (Deut. 4:46-47). Joshua in turn overcame the Amorite kings of the five cities of Jerusalem, Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish, and Eglon (Josh. 10:5). In time Amorites and Canaanites were no doubt so mingled as to be indistinguishable, and the name Amorite was used as a general term for the inhabitants of the land, which could equally well be called the land of the Amorites (Josh. 24:15) or the land of the Canaanites." (Myth and Mystery: An Introduction to the Pagan Religions of the Biblical World by Jack Finegan, pp. 121-122)
The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylon as the post-flood center of an occult pagan Mystery religion based on advaitic monism, science of magic transformism, exalted priesthood, gnosis, secret initiations, psychic-powers, familiar spirits, androgyny, sexual perversions, and other evils.
Babylon embraced the Great Lie. Its inhabitants claimed the title, "I AM." The root source of this evil religion and its occult power was the Great Dragon himself....Lucifer:
".... the Great Lie (is) the foundation stone of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sufism, Jainism, Sikhism, Taoism, the Kabala, the Greek Hermetic, Eleusinian and Gnostic beliefs, Neo-Platonism, all the occult creeds from Theosophy and the Masonic orders to the Rosicrucian's (and) the New Age movement. The Great Lie is...the belief that man is God, that his true identity is the immortal self...that as God, he will never die (and) Sin and depravity are...illusions since this inner divinity is at man's core." (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, SCP Journal, Vol. 29:2-29:3, 2005)
The occult science and pagan Mystery Religion of Babylon was embraced by apostate Jews during their captivity there and delivered to subsequent generations of Mystery Religion initiates by word of mouth. According to Masonic writer Helena Blavatsky, one of the key architects of Luciferian New Age pantheism, these initiates of the occult tradition in the centuries before Christ were known as Tanaim:
"The kabalist is a student of ‘secret science’, one who interprets the hidden meaning of the Scriptures with the help of the symbolical Kabala… The Tanaim were the first kabalists among the Jews; they appeared at Jerusalem about the beginning of the third century before the Christian era… This secret doctrine is identical with the Persian wisdom, or ‘magic’.” (Ibid. p.167)
"The Kabalah is the key to the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists.” (Occult Mason Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 626)
The anticreation cosmogony of Kabala teaches the gradual condensation or evolutionary progression of an eternally existing primal psychic substance into visible matter. This is a fundamental,
"... doctrine of the Cabala (and) is the ancient Semitic conception of the ‘primal ocean,’ known to the Babylonians as ‘Apsu’ and called by the Gnostics βύθος = (Anz, ‘Die Frage nach dem Ursprung des Gnostizismus,’ p. 98).
According to Blavatsky, Kabalah derived,
“.... from the older secret doctrines concerning divine things and cosmogony, which were combined into a theology after the time of the captivity of the Jews in Babylon. All the works that fall under the esoteric category are termed Kabalistic.” (Blavatsky, Theosophical Glossary, p. 168)
Blavatsky also taught that the Essenes were pagan priests of the Greek goddess, Diana of Ephesus, where the Tanaim had established a college for instruction in the Babylonian mystery religion:
“Essenes... had many Buddhistic ideas and practices; and it is noteworthy that the priests of the Great Mother at Ephesus, Diana-Bhavani with many breasts, were also denominated... It was at Ephesus where was the great College of the Essenes and all the lore the Tanaim had brought from the Chaldees... Essenes, believed in reincarnation.” (Theosophical Glossary, pp. 113-14; The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II, p. 111n)
Eventually Alexandria, Egypt became the epicenter of cosmological and pagan religious ideas as well as the intellectual meeting point between Greek Mystery Religion/Hermetic magic initiates and nature sages and guardians of Kabala. After the fall of Jerusalem, Alexandria was the center from which occult pagan Jews would disguise their mystery tradition in Christian terminology and attempt to penetrate the fledgling Church with heresy.
One of the primary tactics employed by Cabbalist pagan Jews for this purpose is the same one employed today by their modern evolutionary Christian counterparts. It involves the reduction of the Genesis account, particularly the first three books, to allegory and myth, a ploy that eliminates the physical Adam from which all people descended and the sin that he transferred to the rest of the human race. This strikes directly at the heart of the Gospel: the need for the ‘last Adam’ to provide for us an escape from the wrath of God against sin incurred by the first Adam. In this way, not only is the work of Christ on the cross rendered superfluous, meaning the heart of the faith is ripped out, but God is made responsible for sin and evil. (1 Peter 3:18-22; 1 John 2:22)
Long ago, the teachings of some of the early Church Fathers regarding the apostasy toward the end of the church age predicted the reappearance of this evil tactic. The fathers categorized it a Gnostic pagan heresy.
In "Heresies 6.10" Hippolytus writes that the Gnostic pagan Simon Magus feigned faith and allegorized much of Scripture, especially Genesis, to support his evolutionary Hermetic and Gnostic occult pantheist teachings. Church Fathers Ireneaus, Tertullian and Clement of Alexandria reveal that Gnostic cult leader Marcion rejected the Old Testament, taught that the God of the Old Testament and his prophets are evil, made God the author of sin and removed all references that Christ was Creator (John 1:1) (Ireneaus, "Against Heresies 1.26, 5.1," Tertullian "Against Marcion 2.17," Clement of Alexandria, "Against Heresies 4.29)
Neither pre-flood nor post-flood Canaanites were un-evolved pre-human hominids, as modern neo-pagan evolutionists falsely maintain. In the pre-flood world they were kings and practitioners of Mystery Religion Atlantis. In the post-flood world they were the practitioners of the post-flood mystery religion Babylon that with some revisions is practiced in our own time by Luciferian elites and other global occultists in a pyramid shaped meditation room situated within the U.N.
Part of the dedication of the U.N. Meditation Room statement by Dag Hammarskjöld, UN Secretary-General (1953-1961) states the following:
“…the stone in the middle of the room has more to tell us. We may see it as an altar, empty not because there is no God, not because it is an altar to an unknown god, but because it is dedicated to the God whom man worships under many names and in many forms.” (The Cult of the All-Seeing Eye, Robert Keith Spenser, p. 9)
A large, well-lighted mural situated at the apex of the pyramid occupies the position of prominence. An asymmetrical geometric magic box, it symbolizes the evolving universe of matter and psychic energy worshipped by mystery religion initiates and adepts under many names from the pre-flood world to our own.
Canaanites: Pre-flood and Post-Flood
Post-flood Canaanites were both brilliant engineers and moral monsters who put their skills to use building war-culture cities from which they emerged to commit wholesale violence and devastation against surrounding societies. Moreover, they debased the 'better' polytheism of the pre-Amorite-invasion Canaanites into the detestable practices done in the Canaan of Israelite times, the religious practices that YHWH seemed to be referring to in Isaiah 45: 18, Deut. 12, 18 and 23, Psalm 106, and Leviticus 18: 1-30:
"I am the LORD, and there is none else. "I have not spoken in secret, In some dark land; I did not say to the offspring of Jacob, 'Seek Me in a waste place' (i.e., creative energy, Quantum Vacuum); I, the LORD, speak righteousness, Declaring things that are upright.…" Isaiah 45:18
“I am the Lord your God. You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices. You must obey my laws and be careful to follow my decrees. I am the Lord your God. Keep my decrees and laws, for the person who obeys them will live by them. I am the Lord. (Leviticus 18: 1-23)
Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways (1-23), because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled,
"Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. But you must keep my decrees and my laws. The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you. Everyone who does any of these detestable things—such persons must be cut off from their people. Keep my requirements and do not follow any of the detestable customs that were practiced before you came and do not defile yourselves with them. I am the Lord your God.’” (Leviticus 18: 24-30)
The LORD said to Moses,
"Say to the Israelites: `Any Israelite or any alien living in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech must be put to death. The people of the community are to stone him. 3 I will set my face against that man and I will cut him off from his people; for by giving his children to Molech, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. 4 If the people of the community close their eyes when that man gives one of his children to Molech and they fail to put him to death, 5 I will set my face against that man and his family and will cut off from their people both him and all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molech. (Lev 20.1ff)
"You must not worship the LORD your God in their way, because in worshipping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the LORD hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods. (Deut 12.31)
"Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire," (Deut 18.10)
They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood. (Ps 106.38)
The list of detestable Canaanite mystery religion practices included:
1.Child sacrifice (blood sacrifice)
4. Homosexual practices
5. Cultic prostitution--both male and female.
Blood sacrifice in the pre-flood world:
"In the fourteenth generation one of the cursed progeny (Canaanites) first erected an altar to demons, for the purpose of magical arts, and offered there blood sacrifices." Recognitions of Clement 1:30
Human sacrifice (blood sacrifice) in the post-flood world:
"Its origin (human sacrifice) must be sought, evidently, in Canaanite culture.... Punic and Neo-Punic inscriptions contain the expressions mlk 'mr (transcribed mokhomor in Latin) and mlk 'dm. Very probably, these phrases mean respectively 'offerings of lamb' and 'offering of man', and refer to the sacrifice of an infant, or of a lamb as substitute. This interpretation is supported by a find in the sanctuary of Tanit at Carthage, where archaeologists have discovered urns containing burnt bones of lambs and goats, and, more often, of children. There is, too, a famous text of Diodorus Siculus (Biblioth. Hist. XX 14): in 310 B.C., when a disaster was threatening Carthage, the inhabitants of the town decided it was due to the anger of Kronos, to whom they had formerly sacrificed their finest children: instead, they had begun to offer sickly children, or children they had bought. Thereupon, they sacrificed two hundred children from the noblest families. There was a bronze statue of Kronos with outstretched arms, and the child was placed on its hands and rolled into the furnace."
"These inscriptions and texts are of late date, but the molk offering is mentioned in two steles from Malta belonging to the seventh or the sixth century B.C. The sacrificial term has not so far been found in inscriptions from Phoenicia proper, but child-sacrifice was practised there: a fragment of Philo of Byblos cited in Eusebius (Praep. Evang. I 10) says that the Phoenicians had an ancient custom--'they offered their dearest children in a way full of mystery' when danger threatened the nation. Porphyry (De abstin. II 56) says that the Phoenician History written by Sanchuniaton and translated by Philo of Byblos was full of stories about child-sacrifices offered to Kronos in times of calamity. These texts furnish the connecting-link with the story told by Diodorus Siculus, and we may mention also the reference to the king of Moab's offering his son as a holocaust when his capital was under siege (2 K 3 : 27).
"The sacrifice of children, then, by burning them to death probably made its way into Israel from Phoenicia (note: the main transmitter of Canaanite culture) during a period of religious syncretism. The Bible mentions only two specific instances, and they are motivated by the same exceptional circumstances as the Phoenician sacrifices: Achaz 'made his son pass through the fire' (2 K I6: 3) during the Syro-Ephraimite War, and Manasseh did the same (2 K 2I: 6) when confronted with some Assyrian threat which is not mentioned in the Books of Kings but which may be alluded to in 2 Ch 33:11f. Yet the custom must have been fairly wide- spread to have deserved the condemnations uttered by Deuteronomy, Leviticus and the Prophets. Though Phoenician texts properly so called do not mention the word, it is possible (we say no more) that the sacrifice was called molk in Phoenicia, as in Carthage, and that it came into Israel under this name." (Ancient Israel. de Vaux, pp. 445-446).
In 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death on the altars of self-serving idolatrous men and women.
The actual rite of child sacrifice at Carthage has been graphically described by Diodorus Siculus:
"There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)
Plutarch, a first and second century A.D. Greek author, adds to the description:
"...the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people." (ibid)
Child sacrifice burial grounds are called tophet in the literature, and they occur throughout Palestine and the Phoenician empire:
"The archaeological excavations at Punic Pozo Moro in Spain show a monument with a ritual scene with a god (with an animal head) on a throne and a table in front of him. He holds with one hand a pig lying on its back and in the other hand he has a bowl with the head and the feet of a little child (?) sticking up. He holds this bowl in front of his mouth. To the right there is another bowl, and a god with an animal head (horse?) holding a knife in his right hand above the bowl ready to slaughter the child. The scene (in a neo-Hittite style) shows both animal and child sacrifices as food for the gods." (The History of Ancient Palestine by G.W. Ahlstrom)
Modern paganized Westerners no longer burn their children in ovens or spill their blood to Kronos but rather kill them in utero. According to American Life League, the total number of abortions in the U.S. from 1973 to 2011 is 54.5 million plus. But these statistics include only surgical and medical abortions because many contraceptive measures,
"....are abortifacients (drugs that induce or cause abortions), it is important not to overlook the number of children killed by chemical abortions. Since 1965, an average of 11 million women have used abortifacient methods of birth control in the United States at any given time. Using formulas based on the way the birth control pill works, pharmacy experts project that about 14 million chemical abortions occur in the United States each year, providing a projected total of well in excess of 610 million chemical abortions between 1965 and 2009." (Abortion, all.org)
Church Father Tertullian condemns child sacrifice, saying that no matter how it is rationalized, it is still murder:
"....murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother's blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed." (Tertullian, Apologeticus IX.- 6, 8)
Homosexuality in the pre-flood world:
"Rabbi Huna said in the name of Rabbi Joseph, 'The generation of the Flood was not wiped out until they wrote marriage documents for the union of a man to a male or to an animal." Genesis Rabbah 26: 4-5; Leviticus Rabbah 23:9
In contemporary paganized America, sixteen American states already allow homosexual marriage. (statesthatallowgaymarriage.com) Moreover, on Dec. 1, 2011 the Senate voted 93-7 to approve a defense authorization bill that includes a provision which not only repeals the military law on sodomy, it also repeals the military ban on sex with animals--or bestiality. (Senate Approves Bill that Legalizes Sodomy and Bestiality in U.S. Military, Pete Winn, cnsnews.com)
"Rabbi Hiyyah taught: The passage reads 'I am the Lord, your God' two times---I am the One Who punished the generation of the Flood, and the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, and Egypt; and in the future I will punish those who do as they did. The generations of the Flood were kings, and were wiped off the earth when they were soaked in sexual sin." Leviticus Rabbah 23: 9
As torrential rains fell the wicked called to Noah, saying,
"Open for us that we may come to thee in the ark---and wherefore shall we die? And Noah, with a loud voice, answered them from the ark, saying, Have you not all rebelled against the Lord, and said he does not exist?" Jasher 6:18-19
As it was in the days of Noah redux
In 1982 Francis A. Schaeffer in his A Christian Manifesto warned the Church:
"Christians…have seen things in bits and pieces… permissiveness, pornography, the public schools, the breakdown of the family, and finally abortion… instead of totals…They have not seen this as a totality–a shift in the world view — that is,…a funda-mental change in the overall way people think and view the world and whole life as a whole.” (Schaeffer)
According to Dr. Peter Jones, adjunct professor of Westminster Seminary, this has become a secularized, mathematical cosmology of worldview or network of plausibility structures so radical it can take your breath away, as stated some years ago by the futurist thinker, Jeremy Rifkin, an adviser to the European Union since 2002 and head of the largest global economic development team in the world. In 1983 at a point in the maturation of the 60’s cultural revolution, he declared in A New Word– A New World:
“We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else’s home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of preexisting cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces…..We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible for nothing outside ourselves, for we are the kingdom.” (Paganism in Today's Culture, Dr. Peter Jones, truthXchange.com)
According to Robert Muller (1923-2010), the UN's Assistant Secretary-General for 40 years, father of World Core Curriculum, and celebrated "Philosopher" of the UN, now that evolution is "mind" highly evolved men are free to spiritually evolve into higher and higher forms, to become one with the 'divine:'
"Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the 'divine,' its transcendence into ever higher forms of life. Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity. Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age..." (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)
The rising New World Order will be post-Christian Technocratic Scientific Dictatorship because evolution proves that human beings, as they evolved out of primordial matter, created language, then symbols, then religious explanations and God Himself. Therefore tomorrow's culture will be trans-humanist, scientific, pluralistic, syncretistic, relativistic and poly-gendered because evolution integrates all scientific, cultural, religious, economic and human gender into one worldwide polyglot thus when the global society emerges from the evolutionary process,
"...it will require humanity to develop a new consciousness and a new form of spirituality" because "the new story which has become basic to the global world begins with a new word or idea...evolution." (The Paganization of Biblical Studies, Dr. Peter Jones)
The process of worldview transformation has for many years been aided and abetted by weak, accommodating, intellectually arrogant and apostate theologians such as the Hindu-pantheist evolutionary scientist Teilhard de Chardin. Teilhard encouraged Christians to submit to the process of evolution because the promise of this living force (evolution) is godhood through fusion with the substance of God:
“Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is a magnificent means of feeling more at one with God. In (the old, traditional form of Christianity), the universal domination of Christ could…still be regarded as an extrinsic and superimposed power. In a spiritually converging world, this ‘Christic’ energy acquires an urgency and intensity of another order altogether.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p. 590)
Like its' mothers, Mystery Atlantis and Mystery Babylon, the scientifically-enlightened 'brand-spanking new' global religion of evolutionary is occult pantheist advaita monism, which means that as an ancient impersonal god-force is within the cosmos, earth, human beings, rats, weeds, tumble bugs, cancer and everything else then all things are essentially 'one.' Since the god-force is within all things it is within the demonically 'illumined' consciousness of every spiritually evolved initiate and adept.
Clocks have to be turned back, all the way back to the days of Noah in the pre-flood world where evolution is closely connected to the devil's lie that man is a being who though presently limited in time and space is nevertheless capable of achieving a great leap of being and magically evolving into a much more powerful god-like being in the future.
But what things are reckoned new and scientific by deluded modern neo-pagan physicists, mystery religion practitioners in the U.N., and sophisticated theologians are not so; they were known and in use in ages past:
"That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one might say, "See this, it is new "? Already it has existed for ages Which were before us. There is no remembrance of earlier things..." Ecclesiastes 1: 9-1
There are two root problems underlying modern man's attacks upon Jehovah. First, man (the rebellious, defiant clay) is trying to decide if he approves of his Creator, the Potter. Second, man the moral monster also wants to define for himself what is good and what is evil. The clay in other words, wants to be as the Potter. When over the course of time these root problems come to fullness then barbarism prevails, as it did in the pre-flood world and increasingly in our own. Early Church Father John of Damascus identifies barbarism as the primordial heresy, the idea that man is god:
"Barbarism is that which prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah. It is called barbarism because of the fact that in those times men had no ruling authority or mutual accord, but every man was independent and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will." (John of Damascus, "The Fount of Knowledge," cited in Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 131)
