Destination Church: Vanguard of the Revolution?

"You say you want a revolution...Well, you know...We all want to change the world....
You tell me that it's evolution...Well, you know...We all want to change the world..."   
Revolution, The Beatles

The wildly popular Destination Churches are cropping up all over America. Known for their freebies, fun, casual atmosphere, good works and shallow theology, Destination churches are a global family of churches represented by over 1000 churches in over 70 nations.  The mastermind behind Destination churches is New Frontiers:  

Every year, we have a chance to connect and celebrate with other New frontiers churches in the Midwest. Newfrontiers in the USA has a shared mission to plant reproducing churches in the top 100 cities in the country.”     http://destinationchurch.org/category/newfrontiers/ 

New Frontiers is a global apostolic movement headquartered in the U.K. under the leadership and authority of Super Apostle Terry Virgo who describes himself as New Reformed Calvinist.  

New Frontiers is connected to and supports the New Apostolic Reformation. According to the discernment ministry, Discerning the World, the prophetess, 

Cindy Jacobs is part of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) Apostle/Latter Rain Movement (Joel’s Army) run by C. Peter Wagner and Chuck Pierce, etc.  These new modern day prophets insist that the church is to be governed by them based on the structure of the Ephesians 4:11 Fivefold ministry---with absolute authority.  Such leaders include Earl Paulk, John Gimenez, David Cannistraci, Ken Sumrall, Gary Greenwald, Norvel Hayes, Bill Hamon, Terry Virgo, Lou Engle, Rick Joyner, George Otis Jr., Bennie Mostert, Angus Buchan, Dirkie van der Spuy, Wendy and Rory Alex (God TV)…..”  

In his best-selling book, "Strange Fire," pastor John MacArthur masterfully chronicles the unsavory history underpinning the modern Charismatic/Apostolic Movement (NAR) and its false prophets.  The New Apostolic Reformation is both a breeding ground for scandal, bad doctrine, and spiritual chicanery and the fastest growing "Christian" movement in the world, and in his book  MacArthur lays out a chilling case for rejecting its false prophets and for exposing their errors to the cleansing light of Truth.

In his own penetrating analysis of the New Apostolic Movement, Fr. Seraphim Rose notes that the spiritist manifestations (i.e., impartation, holy laughter, drunk in the spirit, roaring, barking, hissing, slain in the spirit) experienced in NAR churches are found in the occult New Age spirituality.   The spirit that invaded the Charismatic movement during the 'Toronto Blessing' is not the Holy Spirit, said Rose, but the kundalini spirit (serpent power), the same spirit that ancient Egyptians, Hindus, yoga practitioners, and New Agers are familiar with.  (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose)

Kundalini spirit (serpent power) is imparted by laying on of hands, or Shakti-pat.  The demon-possessed Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajineesh, called the "divine drunkard" by his disciples and thousands of worshippers in India and America, encouraged his devotees to come and drink from him, meaning, receive his touch:

"His spiritual 'wine' was often passed on with a single touch to the head (Shakti-pat), at which his followers would collapse in ecstatic laughter. Another famous guru, Swami Muktananda, would hold meetings at which thousands of his followers from around the world came to receive his touch.  They experienced uncontrollable laughing, roaring, barking, hissing, crying, shaking, as well as falling unconscious." (Rose, p. 217)

These demon-possessed gurus were imparting to their worshippers experiences they had undergone during initiation rituals and which they attributed to spirit-possession.

The Kundalini spirit-empowered apostles of NAR and their international affiliates propose to establish the Kingdom of God on earth.  Toward this end they have created a vast interconnected network, a Leviathan whose tentacles stretch around the globe and into undiscerning local churches which they seek to transform so as to raise up a Joel's Army in order to rule the world.  When Christ comes back they plan to hand over to Him a perfected world populated by perfected people.   With respect to NAR's revolutionary transformational vision Vinson Synan, a NAR apostle said:   

 "In all revolutions there are noisy and dangerous times as the old order is replaced by the new....after the dust settles we can proceed to build the beautiful kingdom that the Lord has purposed from the foundations of the world." (FULNESS, Jan-Feb. 1990, Synan, p. 24)  

 According to Rick Joyner, 

 "What is about to come upon the earth is not just a revival, or another awakening; it is a veritable revolution. The vision was given in order to begin to awaken those who are destined to radically change the course, and even the very definition of Christianity. The dismantling of organizations and disbanding of some works will be a positive and exhilarating experience for the Lord's faithful servants...the Lord will raise up a great company of prophets, teachers, pastors and apostles that will be of the spirit of Phinehas ... this "ministry of Phinehas" will save congregations, and at times, even whole nations. …Nations will tremble at the mention of their name..."(THE HARVEST, Rick Joyner)  

Brannon House of Worldview Weekend describes NAR as a network that by stealth and cunning has superimposed itself on top of nearly every existing denominational structure in the country: 

 "This aggressive networking has set up entirely new avenues of authority and accountability, until existing structures and theologies have been compromised and eroded, or completely taken over by the NAR and/or one of its related networks. And through its Dominionist goals, the NAR hopes that its network can superimpose itself over existing community, cultural and governmental structures across the land, which is referred to as the Seven Mountains."  (C. Peter Wagner Spins the NAR, Worldview Weekend) 

 What are these seven mountains?  

 1. Church 

2. Family 

3. Government 

4. Business 

5. Education 

6. Media 

7. Entertainment 

 Here we see that NAR is not a revolutionary movement solely taken up with signs and wonders as the chief weapon to transform the church and subdue the nations.  In its arsenal of weapons are subtlety, persuasion, pragmatism, and covert political, religious and cultural operations that work hand-in-hand with signs and wonders. 

 NAR is a 'Christianized' variation of the Promethean faith.  Prometheus was the Greek Titan who stole fire from the gods and gave it to man. When Prometheus is incarnated in the human mind as the longing for Godlike power to remake man and the world it produces in the minds of men what the author James Billington called the “strange fire in the minds of men.From this strange fire proceeds the revolutionary faith” or “Promethean faith,” a Gnostic doctrine whose origin was solidified in “scientific” Marxist Communism: 

"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)  

Joel's army is on the march, and thousands upon thousands of undiscerning sheep have unwittingly enlisted in its' revolutionary army of darkness pretending to be Light: 

 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.   John 1:4-5

The Truth as to the Madness & Evil overtaking America

According to NBC News, Miranda Kamille Barbour, the self-proclaimed Satanist who claimed to have killed almost two dozen people, unexpectedly pleaded guilty Tuesday in a Pennsylvania court to second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a man she and her husband lured to his death through an online ad. Her husband, Elytte Randle Barbour, who'd been scheduled to testify against her at trial, also pleaded guilty.  (Self-Styled Satanic Serial Killer Pleads Guilty to Pennsylvania Death, nbcnews.com)
 
Today a spirit of madness that inverts evil over good and lie over truth very obviously works through the minds of great numbers of Western and American subjectivists, both Christian and secular, who see themselves as the measure of good and evil.  In practice subjectivism has led to churches that are no longer the Church of Jesus Christ but rock 'n roll temples of therapeutic deism, while the sadistic dismemberment of late-term babies in the womb is not murder but a woman's 'choice,' and throwing open our borders in open invitation to terrorists, ISIS, drug lords and hoodlums is not treachery and betrayal but an act of benevolence.  

Nor is the beheading of a British Christian woman an act of terrorism. Pamela Geller reports that an 82 year old Christian woman was beheaded in her garden.

"And the media and British dhimmi Uk authorities (Scotland Yard) release the story emphatically stating it “is not terrorism” knowing full well the murderer was Muslim. Their concern was not for the Christian victim of Italian descent in this heavily populated Muslim neighborhood, but of protecting Islam." (pamelageller.com, September 4, 2014) 

Of further consequence, sodomy is no longer an act against all that's natural and life-affirming but just another gender and Satanism, the worship of pure evil, is no longer evil but just another religion.  And under the First Amendment, Satanists have the freedom to practice their evil 'religion' resulting in increasingly aggressive attempts at erecting statues of Baphomet and now the 'right' to perform a black mass in Oklahoma City:

 "An Oklahoma-based satanic group called Dakhma of Angra Mainyu has leased space in the Civic Center Music Hall, which is owned and operated by the city, for a black mass on Sept. 21. The event is booked for the Cityspace theater, the facility’s smallest theater space, said Jennifer McClintock, public information officer for the Civic Center."  (Satanic 'black mass' gets green light from U.S. city, Leo Hohmann, wnd.com,  08/26/2014 )

According to early Church Father Athanasius, the truth as to the cause of the frenzy of madness and evil overtaking our own culture is no different than the cause of the madness and evil that swept the antediluvian world.   The truth as to evil lies in the perverted choice of darkened souls, 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, "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, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)
 
In other words, when men choose either to reject our Heavenly Father outright or to allow themselves to 'forget' Him, thereby liberating themselves from all that says 'Thou Shall Not' all that will remain is the wickedness of "I Want."  This is the poison of subjectivism (moral relativism), which means that every fallen man is autonomous and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will.  By extension of this evil logic the Constitution, the Law of our land, is nothing more than a wicked genie that gratifies the selfish demands of the wicked while at the same time preventing Truth and moral limitations from hindering their demands.  But if the Constitution is nothing more than an instrument of self-gratification it stands to reason that it must gratify the perverse appetites of the most evil among us.  In this light, the madness, beheadings, Satanism and other evils overtaking our culture are the consequences subjectivists have brought upon us all, and  may God have mercy upon our souls!

The Meaning of Zombie Apocalypse

Our age is a time when the very idea of transcendent truth is attacked and scorned, even within seminaries and the church where clergy who ought to revere truth most highly instead boast of thinking outside the box, of not being restricted by rules, and in the spirit of postmodern contemporary church leader Brian McLaren of having,

“….captured, stuffed, and mounted truth on the wall.” (The Truth War, John MacArthur, p. x)

In his Concise Commentary Matthew Henry identifies the falling stars of Revelation 9:1 in two ways.  First, as Satan and other fallen angels and second, as tepid, indecisive, weak or apostate clergy like Teilhard de Chardin and Brian McLaren and too many others to name who,

"Having ceased to be a minister of Christ, he who is represented by this star becomes the minister of the devil; and lets loose the powers of hell against the churches of Christ."

In 1973, secular psychologist Karl Menninger took aim at the attack on truth when he pointed out in a book entitled, Whatever Became of Sin? the fact that American churches were in the process of suppressing the reality of guilt in accord with the concept of a divine standard of right and wrong.

Menninger’s definition of sin was distinctly Biblical, thus entailed the idea of willful rebellion against and negation of the transcendent truth and moral laws of the Triune God.  It was this unique concept of sin that was disappearing from the American consciousness and by extension, from public discourse.

More than forty years later, nearly half of all Christians are subjectivists who either wittingly or unwittingly elevate science and evolution above the God of Revelation and likewise accept Robert Sculler’s postmodern arguments in “Self-Esteem: The New Reformation.” Today’s church said Schuller, can no longer afford to think in a God-centered fashion but must put humans and their needs first. It was appropriate for Calvin and Luther to think theocentrically but now,

the scales must tip the other way” towards a “human needs approach.” In fact, “classical theology has erred in its insistence that theology be ‘God-centered,’ not ‘man-centered.” In this context, the new definition of sin is, “any act or thought that robs myself or another human being of his or her self-esteem…And what is ‘hell’? It is the loss of pride that naturally follows separation from God—the ultimate and unfailing source of our soul’s sense of self-respect…A person is in hell when he has lost his self-esteem.” (Schuller, from “Christless Christianity, Michael Horton, p. 33)

Under direction of ministers of Satan, America’s postmodern 'scientifically enlightened' Church no longer defines itself as the church of the living God, the “pillar and support of the truth” (1 Timothy 3:15) and subsequently views the Cross as sanctification of narcissism (self-esteem) while Paul’s admonition to Timothy, “But understand this…in the last days…people will be lovers of self…” is redefined as a statement of backwardness and hate that must not be preached lest it “hurt a lot of beautiful people,” said Schuller.

For over forty years both Christian and secular have been told how special and unique they are, that as they have a right not to be offended they should not submit to rules, authority, processes or other moral restrictions that make them feel bad, and above all else they should trust their feelings to guide them. Reliance upon absolute principles, moral law and immutable truth places unrealistic limitations on one’s authentic self, thus damages self-esteem. So esteem ‘self,’ have lots of fun, actualize dreams, impulses,  compulsions, and emerging sexual orientations, realize that your ‘God’ is not the Biblical God of Love and Judgment but of only love who helps those who esteem and help themselves, therefore always revel in the moment.

In this light it comes as no surprise that to increasing millions of Americans God exists for instance, as  a  divine energy within the mind of man, a voice speaking secret revelations into the minds of the chosen, or perhaps a god that can only create evolutively, meaning our Heavenly Father is merely an idol through which both narcissistic clergy and Christian masses self-righteously affirm ‘self’ and the 'impressive' theories, ideas, and revelations  that ‘self’ thinks and receives.

All of this means that today’s subjectivist Church is not interested in the authoritative Word of God but in autonomous 'self,' self-gratification, and acceptance and validation by the world. George Barna agrees. Based on numerous studies Barna concludes,

“….if we even believe in a supernatural deity (he) exists for the pleasure of humankind. He resides in the heavenly realm solely for our utility and benefit. Although we are too clever to voice it, we live by the notion that true power is accessed not by looking upward but by turning inward.” (ibid, p. 31)

From 2001 to 2005 University of North Carolina sociologist Christian Smith investigated teen spirituality in contemporary America. From his extensive research he concluded that the dominant form of spirituality among teens is “moralistic, therapeutic desism” in which God is restricted to the inner sphere’s of one’s private world.

Smith defines moralistic, therapeutic deism in the following five points:

1. God created the world
2. God wants people to be good, nice, and fair to each other
3. The central goal of life is to be happy and to feel good about oneself
4. God does not need to be particularly involved in one’s life except when needed to resolve a problem
5. Good people go to heaven when they die
(ibid, Christless Christianity, pp. 40-41)

There are as yet a remnant of churches, pastors, evangelists, apologeticists and missionaries here in America and around the world faithfully affirming and teaching that God called creation into existence ex nihilo in six days, that He made man in His spiritual image, and that though fallen and unable to save himself, Christ was crucified for the sins of all men.   But despite efforts of the shrinking faithful Michael Horton sees that the much larger postmodern Church is well on its way to becoming what he calls Christless Christianity.

Already we have arrived at a point where the message of the contemporary Church has simply become trivial, irreverent, sentimental, self-affirming, and irrelevant.

We do not realize the extent of our schizophrenia said Horton. While we annually decry the commercialization of Christmas we enthusiastically embrace the consumer-product-sales-approach formulated by ‘church growth’ experts like Hybels, Warren, and other transformational gurus. While calling our capitulation to self-affirming narcissism “mission and relevance” we hypocritically charge secularists,

“..with emptying public discourse of beliefs and values that transcend our instant gratification.” And as we lament “the growing secularization of American society…we ensure that the generations currently under our care will know even less than their parents…” (pp. 22-23)

In agreement, Collin Garbarino, author of "Moral Relativists In The University: They Aren’t Who You Think They Are," observes that many conservatives blame left-leaning professors for the rise in moral relativism. While a liberal faculty certainly promotes the idea that “good” is a relative term defined by the individual and the only “bad” is to infringe on another person’s ability to express their own version of “good,” the battle for conservatism was lost long before students ever met their first college professor. In my experience, said Garbarino, freshmen arrive on campus as moral relativists.  (The Aquila Report, August 24, 2014)

After citing a series of reports, Barna concluded that the spirituality of America is Christian in name only:

We desire experience more than knowledge. We prefer choices to absolutes. We embrace preferences rather than truths….Faith must come on our terms or we reject it. We have enthroned ourselves as the final arbiters of righteousness, the ultimate rulers of our own experiences and destiny. We are the Pharisees of the new millennium.” (Horton, p. 31)

Unless something changes said Barna,

It will be every man for himself, with no second thoughts or regrets about the personal or societal implications of this incredibly selfish, nihilistic, narcissistic way of life…” (ibid)

"My people have committed two primary evils, "...they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water." (Jeremiah 2:13, King James)

In his commentary on this verse Matthew Henry writes that we are to be afraid of the wrath and curse which will fall upon those who throw themselves out of God's grace and favor. Grace in Christ is compared to cooling, refreshing  water from a fountain that cleanses and makes fruitful.   Grace in Christ is ever-flowing living water; it quickens spiritually dead sinners, revives drooping saints, supports and maintains spiritual life, and issues in eternal life. To forsake this Fountain is the evil done when the proud, rebellious people of God reject or neglect his Word and ordinances in favor of 'self' and the philosophies, inventions and worthless joys of men, which the prophet Jeremiah likens to broken cisterns that hold no water.

A spirit of pride and rebellion flows throughout America’s contemporary Christian Church, from Roman Catholic to Protestant, which is why it is a broken cistern that holds no living water.  The sin of pride begets the vice known as hatred of truth.

In “Against the Heathen,” early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and a haughty spirit preceded the fall of pre-flood men into idolatry (love of self), superstition (hatred of truth) and violence. Violence always accompanies man’s fall into worship of self, selfish ambition, status, pleasures and acquisition of things.

Violence is the effect of a human will not in submission to the will of our Heavenly Father. It is the outworking of a will turned toward evil through the use of force, which may be psychological (i.e., shunning, ignoring, belittling, slandering), physical, or both in order to dominate, control, outrage and transgress the dignity, integrity and love of truth that characterizes the righteous man.

In his book, “The Truth War,” John MacArthur writes that one of the distinguishing qualities of every true believer is love for the truth:

“…a genuine love for the truth is built into saving faith…In Jesus’ words, they have known the truth, and the truth has set them free. John 8:32″ (p. xi)

The reverse is true of those who will not enter the kingdom of God. The beginning of subjectivism is pride (love of self), the perfect anti-God, anti-truth, anti-higher knowledge state of mind---the primary characteristic of those who perish (2 Thessalonians 2:10; Psm. 36: 1-4):

“…where there is true faith in the Gospel of Christ, and in Christ the substance of it, there is salvation; the reason therefore of these men’s perishing is not the decree of God, nor (for) want of the means of grace, (or) the revelation of the Gospel, but their rejection and contempt of it.” (Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible)

Subjectivists are nihilists who believe in nothing higher than self.   They are liars who lack honor, courage of conviction, frankness, honesty, and uprightness. They cannot be trusted as they are self-centered, double-minded dissimulators who cunningly manipulate other people for their own evil purposes.

Jesus Christ tells us, "The truth will make you free."  Truth is an objective social good meant to be shared by all mankind, but subjectivists hate truth and work to suppress it, and  herein lies the psychological violence which is the evil fruit of subjectivism:

"The clue to the mentality of the liar, in his hatred of truth, is his hatred of God.  And this hatred of God floods over into hatred of those whom God loves, the innumerable millions for whom his divine Son died."   (The Roots of Violence, Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., p. 29)

In "The Poison of Subjectivism," C.S. Lewis says that subjectivism "will certainly end our species and damn our souls."   Because Lewis was a Christian he did not disagree with the fundamental teachings of his Lord and savior Jesus Christ (John 1:1) and the Old Testament prophets  that salvation presupposes repentance, and repentance presupposes an objectively real moral law.  In this light we can see that subjectivism will surely damn our souls because just as it suppresses objective truth and reality, so it eliminates moral law, thereby trivializing repentance, imperiling salvation and ending the human race, not by flood as before, but by fire.

Lewis sees farther than most, thus he argues that our species will be ended because the entire human race is becoming increasingly Westernized, thereby relativized.  The tragic irony here is that America,  which at one time was a fortress of Christian theism, is now the primary source of subjectivism in the world today.  This is because America's collapsing Christian denominations no longer defend objective truth and moral law.

According to Christian philosopher Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., the most recent polls show that Catholics are as relativistic, both in behavior and in belief, as non-Catholics. Sixty-two percent of Evangelicals say they disbelieve in any absolute or unchanging truths, and American Jews are significantly more relativistic and more secular than Gentiles. (A Refutation of Moral Relativism, Peter Kreeft)

The proud, self-centered 'Christian' subjectivist, be he theologian or otherwise, holds truth in contempt and is therefore aligned with the will of Satan, the teacher of dehumanizing evolutionary worldviews; the father of lies, narcissism, nihilism, and violence (John 8:44). Thus it is to proud 'Christian' subjectivists that Jesus said,

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ Matthew 7:21

Zombie Apocalypse

Barbarism prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah (Matthew 24:37):

" 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)

Barbarism is the outworking of spiritually dead subjectivists, whether ministers of Satan or evolutionary atheists and pantheists, and the truth as to the evils of Noah's time said Athanasius, is that it originated and resided,

".... in the perverted choice of the darkened soul" which, "materialized by forgetting God" and engrossed in lower things, "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, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

In other words, because man is a living soul embodied in flesh he cannot live by earthly bread alone.  His living soul/spirit requires the living waters, or heavenly manna that comes from our Heavenly Father. (Matthew 4:4)  Unless he repents and turns back to the Holy Trinity his soul will become dark and materialized and thereby suffer a kind of death resulting in the reversal of conversion in which the soul ceases to live from the spirit and begins to live with the life of the body. The intellect becomes disordered and the disordered passions thereby revived absorb the life of the person who spiritually dies resulting in a walking dead body, a zombie that nevertheless moves and speaks.  This is the natural man of 2 Tim. 3:3. (St. Tikhon, Works II, as quoted in Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, p. 120)

Natural man is a citizen of the earthly City of Man, one of the two cities formed by two opposing kinds of love. According to St. Augustine the City of Man is formed by the love of self, even to the contempt of God. The other, though entangled at present with the City of Man is the City of God formed by the love of God, even to the contempt of self:  “The former, in a word, glories in itself, the latter in the Lord.”   (St. Augustine, The City of God, Book 14, Section 28)  

In the mythology created by J.R.R. Tolkien, specifically the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Silmarillion, it's all important Genesis account, Tolkien posited three cities: the City of God (represented by the Fellowship of the Ring); the City of Man (Orthanc under Saruman, a Maia, or second-order angel); and that of the devil (Barad-Dur under Sauron).  (St. Augustine and J.R.R. Tolkien, Bradley J. Birzer, The Imaginative Conservative)

Like all of Iluvatars' created creatures, Sauron started well.  “For nothing is evil in the beginning,” Elrond stated at his Council. But in his pride and lust for domination he fell, and in his evil he surpassed human tyrants.  Being  an immortal (angelic) spirit, Sauron followed the lead of the rebel Devil Morgoth and became the greatest of all evils, serving as Morgoth’s lieutenant.

The “citizens” of Orthanc, under the strict command of Saruman, are the Orcs. Meaning “demon” in Anglo-Saxon, Orcs are nihilists--corrupted, spiritually dead, self-centered Elves, the rational creatures of Iluvatar, the Divine God who sang creation into existence.  Orcs are cruel, wicked, bad-hearted zombies:

They make no beautiful things, but they make many clever ones. They can tunnel and mine as well as any but the most skilled dwarves, when they take the trouble, though they are usually untidy and dirty. Hammers, axes, swords, daggers, pickaxes, tongs, and also instruments of torture, they make very well, or get other people to make to their design, prisoners and slaves that have to work till they die for want of air and light. It is not unlikely that they invented some of the machines that have since troubled the world, especially the ingenious devices for killing large numbers at once, for wheels and engines and explosions always delighted them." (Tolkien, The Hobbit, p. 60)

Today our truth-hating, narcissistic society's morbid fascination with Walking Dead, Vampires, ghouls, skulls, ugliness and the bizarre ensuing in growing unease and fear in some quarters of Zombie Apocalypse can be rolled into a strange celluloid representation of the enigmatic expression that appeared as an inscription written by a detached hand on the wall of the palace where Belshazzar, the Chaldean king, was giving a banquet (Dan 5:25).  In his interpretation of the inscription (Dan 5:25-28) Daniel said God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end.  You have been weighed in the balance and found wanting and your kingdom (this world) will be taken from you.

Whereas  apostasy, spiritual death, and barbarism  'prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah,' so they are coming to fullness throughout the West and America during our own time.   And when they finally prevail throughout the world, then the resulting Zombie Apocalypse under direction of the Devil Morgoth and his first lieutenant Sauron will be the end of the human race in this present world and in the twinkling of an eye, the first moment of everlasting darkness.

Before it's too late

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:

"..... 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

Destruction does not mean annihilation of the soul. 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 Antichrist's Two-Fold Prophecy of Judgment Upon the West

In "Remembering the God Man Forgot" Jeremy Kee describes ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn as a prophet "very much in the line of the Hebrew prophets of old." In the minds of many a great intellectual Conservative of the 20th Century, Solzhenitsyn was held in equal esteem with the likes of men such as Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II in terms of their contributions to humanity during their time on Earth. (Kee, The Imaginative Conservative)

In an age that hates true truth and moral law as much as it hates the God of Revelation, Solzhenitsyn's no-holds barred honesty was abhorred by Western and American rationalists, the heirs of a rebellion against the Christian God that stretches back to the Renaissance and views socialism and communism as desirable systems of social order.  

But communism, said Solzhenitsyn, is atheism, and this is the evil in man in rebellion against God who seeks to seize control of the world and of man's very inner person and remake both to suit the desires of God hating men.  This is why the imposition of totalizing systems unleashed catastrophic destruction and human suffering and death on a global scale never before seen in this world, leading Solzhenitsyn to conclude in his Templeton lecture,

"“The failings of human consciousness, deprived of its divine dimension, have been a determining factor in all the major crimes of this century…”   

The thrust of Mr. Solzhenitsyn’s address, said Lee, focuses on what he sees as the catalyst of society’s decay and decline into spiritual, political, and social anarchy: that man has forgotten God. When man outright rejects and/or forgets God, whether by choice or indifference, he drifts from fellowship and community with the Almighty, and Mr. Solzhenitsyn suggests that the quality of the world around them will suffer as well. Solzhenitsyn points out how medieval and superstitious this sounds to our scientifically enlightened rationalists, noting that today’s world has reached a stage which, if it had been described to preceding centuries, would have called forth the cry:

This is the Apocalypse! Yet we have grown used to this kind of world; we even feel at home in it.”

Indeed. We are living in a spiritual, intellectual and moral void resulting from the "murder" of the Triune God of Revelation by Christian apostates during the 19th century. After two mystical encounters with a spirit calling itself Zarathustra, the German philosopher Nietzsche, now calling himself the Antichrist,  delivered a two-fold prophecy of judgment.  

Because Christians killed the God of Revelation during the 19th century there will follow two calamities during the 20th century. First, said Zarathustra speaking through Nietzsche, the 20th century will be a time of catastrophic destruction and death unlike anything ever before experienced. Second, madness---moral imbecility, horror, night terrors, nihilism--- will overtake the minds of Westerners:

"...the horrors of conscience...are to the elect a preparation for faith (Rom. 7. v. 9. 10. 24) inasmuch as the Holy Spirit kindles in them a desire for reconciling themselves to God. To the reprobate, however, they are the atrium of hell…."  (Caspar Olevianus, De substantia foederis gratuiti inter deum et electos  1585, 2.7. quoted by R. Scott Clark, Heidelblog)

The first part of Zarathustra's prophecy has been fulfilled. The second is still coming to fullness in our time and for those with eyes to see, its' appalling effects are everywhere apparent right here in America, and this is why the highly respected pastor John MacArthur believes that segments of American society have already been abandoned by God to the effects of its sinful choices.

This isn’t the first nation that this has happened to, said MacArthur, this is the story of history. In Acts 14:16 the Apostle Paul said, “In the generations gone by, He…God…permitted all the nations to go their own way.” This is the story of history:

" All the nations of history go their own way. So like the nations of old, like the nations past, we follow the same cycle of having the truth, rejecting the truth and being abandoned by God."

In his book "The Problem of Pain," C.S. Lewis wrote that when God gives sinners over to the consequences of their choices, they join the ranks of all of the lost, past and present who,

“....enjoy forever the horrible freedom they have demanded and are therefore self-enslaved.”

According to MacArthur, no Scripture more directly addresses abandonment and its consequences than Romans 1 does.  Here is the "most graphic and the most comprehensive discussion of what it means to be abandoned by God" and is the best passage to explain the madness, moral chaos and confusion foretold by Zarathustra that we are experiencing in our own nation at this very time:

" God’s wrath is already at work in our culture. We’re not waiting for it, we are currently experiencing it."

Modernism: the Unrelenting Destructive Criticism of the Word of God

Truth in Science, a Christian organization headed by renowned authors and professors of science from leading universities, is focused on scientific evidence in support of Creation.  The organization recently issued a statement deploring  the government's announcement that the teaching of the Biblical origin of man to nursery children equates to "extremism." 

What the secularized British government deems rational because supposedly "scientific" is the anti-human idea that matter, if given enough time (billions of years),

" will turn into people.  This is scientifically preposterous and based on the "religion of atheistic humanism / atheistic naturalism.”  (Christianconcern.com,  August 14th, 2014) 

 In whatever form it takes, whether Darwinism, Teilhardism, or progressive creationism for example, evolution is radically hostile to the Word of God.  The Bible clearly asserts that the Triune God created heaven and earth in six days.  Evolution either negates God outright or demands the Genesis account be allegorized or interpreted away.   Either way, every doctrine of Scripture is undermined leaving Scripture without meaning and purpose. 

Because our Heavenly Father created all things, He and He alone is the sustainer, governor, and redeemer of all things. Man is God's creation, thus responsible to Him and totally under His law.  God is man's savior because as creator He alone is omnipotent over man and the universe and sufficient for all things. The Triune God is man's judge because he is man's creator, and He created man for His own purposes and glory. If God's creative work is denied, then His governance and redemption are also denied, because our Heavenly Father is made irrelevant both to man and His own creation.

What the doctrine of evolution has done is to destroy transcendent truth, Divine Law and man's inner person.  The Triune God is Ultimate Reality, and because evolution does not affect the Triune God then rebellious men, their theories and science cannot alter ultimate reality.  Evolution can, however, affect and disorder the mind and welfare of man. How has it done this?

"In him we live and move and have our being." Acts 17:28

First of all, according to evolution man is no longer viewed as created in the spiritual image of the Triune God (John 1: 1-18) despite that both the Word of God and His creation testify that our Creator exists (Ps. 19; Rom. 1:18-32). Unlike creatures, God is self-existent.  He depends on nothing outside of Himself for His existence, but everything, including man, depends on Him for its being (Acts 17:28).  The Lord sustains everything that He made in the beginning (Genesis) by the word of His power (Heb. 1:3).   If He were to cease to exist, everything else would cease to exist as well.

According to Scripture, man is created in God's spiritual image, and although fallen, is under the Divine Law of God.  Therefore, defiant arrogant men are not to dehumanize other men into bio-machines, hominids or apes as this act constitutes the breaking of the first and second Commandment.   Willful dehumanization is a form of murder, albeit it spiritual murder, of God's spiritual image in man.

Just as the Sabbath was made for man, and not the reverse, so too creation and the state are made for man, not man for creation and the state. Man is a person endowed with unalienable rights because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons.  Man's worth, dignity and liberty are the fruit of Biblical faith. The world is man's dominion under God. But evolutionary theory destroys man's inner person, the part of him created in God's spiritual image and views him as an evolved product within the evolving universe of matter and energy, therefore instead of being a person set over nature as God intended, arrogant evolutionists dehumanize man and set him within and under the evolving universe of matter and energy as a product of it.  Thus evolution produces slavery, a necessary foundation for socialism (totalitarianism). 

When man is a dehumanized product of nature everything about him is determined by and therefore submissive to nature, and his psychology a conditioned reflex action rather than a governing action.   Man as product of nature must sacrifice himself, his children and the safety and well-being of his family to nature (Gaia) and is therefore reduced to the same slavish status as existed during antiquity in Egypt and other pagan states which held to evolutionary conceptions.  

But when man knows himself to be created by his Heavenly Father, and this faith is basic to his thinking, then man is a product of God's creative work and while submissive in relationship to God is active towards nature. He is determined by God, not by nature, and  therefore governs nature.  Man as a person because God's spiritual image bearer is free from nature, not a slave of it, because man is created and governed by God, not by nature:

"Where men are not ruled by God, they are ruled by tyrants. And the rise of evolutionary thinking has produced a world-wide rise of totalitarianism. Since man is no longer seen as a creation by God, he is becoming a creature of the total state, and the total state is determined to remake man in its own image. As a result, man is now the primary experimental animal. Many people are alarmed at the use of animals in scientific experimentation. But the grim reality is that the primary experimental animal is man. Not only the mental health experts, but virtually every agency of civil government is today engaged in trying to remake man. Moreover, scientists are engaged in experiments concerning psychochemical and electronic controls over man." (Rushdoony)

Once the citadels of Christianity, for more than 100 years Western Europe and America have been rejecting their Christian foundations in favor of evolutionary scientism.  When Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species was published on November 24, 1859, all 1,250 copies sold out on the day of publication. God-hating Westerners and Americans alike had long been waiting for a theory with so-called 'scientific' prestige to render the Bible and the God of Revelation obsolete, thus they immediately jumped on the bandwagon of Darwinism. George Bernard Shaw described the relief of men at being rid of the Triune God and declared the world jumped at Darwin.  (Is Evolution Proved?, Dewar and Shelton, p. 4, cited by R.J. Rushdoony, The Necessity for Creationism)

With great haste, many compromising churchmen immediately scrambled aboard the Darwinian bandwagon and quickly followed by a long line of theological pied pipers right into our own time. For such people the appeal to compromise is irresistible.  Why not be fashionably "scientific," or "scientifically" respectable?  If the Genesis account of creation is such an embarrassment, why not accommodate the Bible to evolution? Why defend unscientific creation ex nihilo and risk being considered ignorant and backward by the world's scientific elite despite St. James warning,

"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all" (James 2:10).

Similarly, anyone who denies the authority of Scripture at one point has denied it at all points.  Rushdoony comments:

" If we assert that we can set aside the six-day creation doctrine, we have asserted our supremacy over Scripture. Our mind and our convenience now have a higher authority than the Bible, so that we have denied its authority totally and asserted our authority instead. If we claim the right at any point to set aside Scripture, we have established ourselves as the higher authority at every point. Clearly, therefore, the question of authority is at stake in Genesis 7: God or man? Whose word is authoritative and final?"

 Throughout the post-Christian West and America fallen man's word, hence his disordered mind and his selfish, depraved desires are now authoritative and final and his new religion is science. As C. F. Weizsacker observed at a scientific gathering:

"Science today is the only thing in which men as a whole believe: it is the only universal religion of our time. . The scientist has thus got himself into an ambiguous position: he is a priest of this new religion, possessing its secrets and marvels; for what to others is puzzling, strange or secret is plain to him. It is suddenly clear in many countries that the future of a nation, of a continent, of a view of life depends on producing enough scientists. Is this immoderate faith in the power of science justified?" (C. F. Weizsacker, quoted in Flaws in the Theory of Evolution, Evan Shute, p.228; ibid. Rushdoony)

Today it's no longer easy to be a faithful Christian in what once was Christendom and Protestant America.  Science obsessed evolutionary modernists, that is, atheists, their New Age evolutionary pantheist and theological counterparts despise us if we affirm that the God of Revelation called creation into existence ex nihilo in six days.   The increasingly ugly intimidation to remain silent is insidious and growing.

Either the Bible is not all it claims to be or it is all it claims to be because it is the inerrant Word of God, and God does not lie but rather Satan, his legions and men do.  The fashionable view today however, affirms the trustworthiness of sinful men filled with lies over our Heavenly Father and evolutionary science and higher criticism over His Word. This is why an affirmation of creation elicits hoots of derision, condemnation as anti-science, backwards fundamentalism and charges of child abuse and mental insanity.

For science-and-evolution worshipping modernists to willfully choose not to believe the Genesis account is one thing, but the hundreds of years old concerted drive on a global level to diminish, devalue and demolish the Word of God and the Genesis account in particular and the psychological and physical crucifixion of the faithful is something else. 

While most written works of men are subjected to literary criticism, the world today is witnessing a strange yet consistent phenomenon when it comes to unrelenting destructive criticism of the Bible.  According to Dr. Bill Cooper, Vice President of the Creation Science Movement in England, many "colleges, universities, seminaries and schools around the world are dedicated" to the literary criticism of the Word of God, a phenomenon that,

"....is consistent down the ages and across the world, and involves a countless multitude of hammers being worn down to nothing, or shattered to pieces as they strike against this particular anvil, and all to none effect.   Indeed, so consistent, predictable and inevitable is the phenomenon, that one wonders why they bother.  But bother they do, and they must be answered." (The Authenticity of the Book of Genesis: A Study in Three Parts, Cooper, p. 7)

The one book of the Bible that consistently receives the most brutal pounding by modernist hammers is the Book of Genesis. After all, with no Book of Genesis there is no creation ex nihilo, and with no creation, there is no Fall of man, no need of repentance and the Good News of Christ, no heaven, no hell, and no future Paradise.

Not only have modernists of every stripe challenged, denigrated and written off the historical statements of Genesis as myth but they challenge its age as well.   Indeed, modernists write the Book of Genesis off with absurd claims of it being nothing more than a borrowed account filched from the myths of Babylonia, the mother of all post-flood evolutionary cosmogonies, Mystery Religion, gnosis, secret rites, initiations, sorcery, witchcraft, and divination.   

 In Dr. Cooper's impressively researched three-part study he takes on the challenges of globally accepted modernist opinions of Scriptures, exposes their spurious claims, dishonest scholarship, revisionist history, intolerance, censorship, and insidious intimidation.    

Cooper argues from hard evidence that the Bible is historically accurate in everything prophetical, geographical, linguistic and doctrinal. Part One of his book deals with the antiquity of Genesis, showing how its component parts are considerably older than any of the post flood evolutionary cosmogonies such as the Babylonian Enuma Elish proposed by modernists as source material for the Bible.

Part Two digs into pre-Christian Flood traditions found around the world.   Cooper shows that all together these flood traditions present a formidable evidence for the truth of Genesis when it speaks of the flood of Noah.

Finally, Part Three draws the reader's attention to the Atrahasis narrative, an ancient clay tablet that makes nonsense of Modernist claims that the Genesis Flood account is filched from the Epic of Gilgamesh.    Cooper calls this amazing tablet the Genesis Flood Tablet. 

Modernism is an anti-Triune God, anti-Genesis account program of dehumanization consisting of many interwoven threads encompassing man as god, science religion, Darwinian atheism, evolutionary New Age pantheism and evolutionary theology, all of which bristles with hostility toward the God of Revelation, the Book of Genesis and all faithful believers and defenders and shares in common the following:

1.Hatred of the supernatural God of Revelation and of man as His spiritual image-bearer

2.Naturalism: one dimensional views of reality

3.An inverted account of origins and history lending itself to the notion that since there was no fall then Lucifer is not the devil and men are not fallen but rather evolving into a higher order of being

4.Science religion

5.Evolutionary conceptions. These serve two main functions. First, as a mechanical process of development and second, as a mechanism for purification of matter

6.The nihilism of Buddha

Jesus Christ to Buddha,

"...you took God away (and) your espousal of an absence of self is the most unique and fearsome claim you made." (The Lotus and the Cross: Jesus Talks with Buddha, Ravi Zacharias, pp. 59, 67)

Life  and being are only with the living God of Revelation, the creator and upholder of the life and being (soul/spirit) of men. But if He does not exist, it logically follows that there is no ultimate source for life, conscious being, meaning and purpose; or for the sanctity of human life, worth, dignity, individual liberty and personal property. Without our Heavenly Father unalienable (God given) human rights are as meaningless as America's founding documents have become in our secularized society.

If man is a product of evolution rather than God's spiritual image-bearer then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ God Incarnate walked this earth:

"Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if God does not exist, then the human self cannot exist either...Therefore, he deconstructed the Hindu idea of the soul. When one starts peeling the onion skin of one's psyche, he discovers that there is no solid core at the center of one's being." Thus your sense of self becomes illusion, "Reality is nonself...You don't exist. Liberation, the Buddha taught, is realizing the unreality of your existence." (The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, p. 6)

Arrogant, rebellious modernists have dehumanized themselves by their own willful choice. They've stepped out into the Void, thus made themselves into non-persons, the walking dead.  They've reduced themselves to something less than nothing that nevertheless believes itself to be superior in every way to faithful Christians.  Of such as these Jesus said: 

They be blind leaders of the blind..” “And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:14

And finally, with our Heavenly Father all things have a purpose, so thank God for narcissism. It inevitably forces its' proud 'owner' to confess his own stupidity and depravity against himself (Daniel 5:23; Ps. 115:5).

Subjectivism: Why it will Damn Our Souls & End the Human Race

"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)

Barbarism is the outworking of what CS Lewis calls subjectivism, which in our day is also identified as postmodernism, syncretism and moral relativism, the universal madness (moral imbecility) foreseen by the dark prophet Nietzsche.

It was the apostate Christian philosopher Nietzsche,  the son of a Lutheran pastor, who pronounced the death of the Christian God and saw that His death had already begun to,

"....cast its first shadows over Europe," and though "the event itself is far too great, too remote, too much beyond most people's power of apprehension, for one to suppose that so much as the report of it could have reached them," still its advent was certain, and it was men like Nietzsche who were "the firstlings and premature children of the coming century," the century of the "triumph of Nihilism." (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 44)

Calling himself the Antichrist, Nietzsche went on to say that because apostate Christians had murdered the God of Revelation  in the 19th century there would follow two calamitous consequences in the 20th century.

First, the 20th century would become the bloodiest, most catastrophically destructive century in history, and second,  a universal madness would break out and as it reached its fullness in time would turn the West upside-down.  Truth would become lie and lie truth; evil would become good, the unnatural would become natural, and the unholy would become holy.

Nietzsche has been right on both counts, as our age is an eerie time in which the things that everyone---including vast numbers of Christians--- really know to be true, good, decent, and right, are treated as unheard of, as intolerant, hateful, bigoted, anti-science, backward, narrow-minded, alarmist, divisive, racist, and homophobic.

In “What We Can’t Not Know,” a penetrating examination of the lost world of unchanging truths, moral absolutes and common truths that we all really know about right and wrong, author J. Budzisewski, professor of government and philosophy at the University of Texas, writes that the pervasive spiritual darkness within both our churches and society requires lots of lies:

“…the public relations of moral wrong require lies, and a lot of them…There are the lies about whether infidelity and promiscuity really hurt anyone. There are the lies about whether the living child is really alive, or really a child. Next come lies about the meaning of fairness, the nature of promises, and what the “committed gay relationship” is really like. Amid all of them is the lie about how hard it is to know what to do.” (p. 195)

And then there are the lies about the God of Revelation Who spoke everything into existence being a superstitious myth from our prescientific past and the practicality of bringing our abominable culture right into God's house.  If everyone feels that divorce, abortion, lesbianism and sodomy are acceptable and yoga and heavy metal rock music fills seats, then why not?    After all, who can know truth?

According to Collin Garbarino, author of "Moral Relativists In The University: They Aren’t Who You Think They Are," many conservatives blame left-leaning professors for the rise in moral relativism. While a liberal faculty certainly promotes the idea that “good” is a relative term defined by the individual and the only “bad” is to infringe on another person’s ability to express their own version of “good,” the battle for conservatism was lost long before students ever met their first college professor. In my experience, said Garbarino, freshmen arrive on campus as moral relativists.  (The Aquila Report, August 24, 2014)

The beginning of subjectivism is pride (love of self), the perfect anti-God, anti-truth, anti-higher knowledge state of mind.

In "Against the Heathen," early Church Father Athanasius reveals that a haughty spirit filled with pride, or self-esteem as moderns call it, preceded man's fall into idolatry and pagan conceptions of the evolving universe of matter and energy.  A haughty spirit led them to make light of higher truth and moral law, and deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true (moral relativism) they began to seek in preference things in the lower or natural dimension.  Thus they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher things.

The truth as to 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, "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, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Subjectivists are liars.  They lack honor, courage of conviction, frankness, honesty, and uprightness. They cannot be trusted as they are self-centered, double-minded dissimulators who cunningly manipulate other people for their own evil purposes.

Jesus Christ tells us, "The truth will make you free."  Truth is an objective social good meant to be shared by all mankind, but subjectivists hate truth and work to suppress it, and  herein lies the psychological violence which is the evil fruit of moral relativism:

"The clue to the mentality of the liar, in his hatred of truth, is his hatred of God.  And this hatred of God floods over into hatred of those whom God loves, the innumerable millions for whom his divine Son died."   (The Roots of Violence, Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., p. 29)

In "The Poison of Subjectivism," C.S. Lewis says that subjectivism "will certainly end our species and damn our souls."   Because Lewis was a Christian he did not disagree with the fundamental teachings of his Lord and savior Jesus Christ (John 1:1) and the Old Testament prophets  that salvation presupposes repentance, and repentance presupposes an objectively real moral law.  In this light we can see that moral relativism will surely damn our souls because just as it suppresses objective truth and reality, so it eliminates moral law, thereby trivializing repentance, imperiling salvation and ending the human race, not by flood as before, but by fire.

Lewis sees farther than most, thus he argues that our species will be ended because the entire human race is becoming increasingly Westernized, thereby relativized.  The tragic irony here is that America,  which at one time was a fortress of Christian religion, is now the primary source of moral relativism in the world today.  This is because America's collapsing Christian denominations no longer defend objective truth and moral law.

According to Christian philosopher Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., the most recent polls show that Catholics are as relativistic, both in behavior and in belief, as non-Catholics. Sixty-two percent of Evangelicals say they disbelieve in any absolute or unchanging truths, and American Jews are significantly more relativistic and more secular than Gentiles. (A Refutation of Moral Relativism, Peter Kreeft)

"And as in the days of Noe, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Matthew 24:37

Whereas  apostasy and barbarism  'prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah,' so apostasy and Universal Madness (poison of subjectivism) have been coming to fullness from the time of Nietzsche.   And when moral relativism finally prevails throughout the world, then will come the end of the human race.

God, Heaven, Hell & Demons: Do they exist?

Rev. Robert Barron was chagrined, but not entirely surprised when he read Woody Allen’s recent ruminations on ultimate things. To state it bluntly, said Rev. Barron, Woody could not be any bleaker in regard to the issue of meaning in the universe. We live, he said,

"... in a godless and purposeless world. The earth came into existence through mere chance and one day it, along with every work of art and cultural accomplishment, will be incinerated. The universe as a whole will expand and cool until there is nothing left but the void. Every hundred years or so, he continued, a coterie of human beings will be “flushed away” and another will replace it until it is similarly eliminated. So why does he bother making films — roughly one every year? Well, he explained, in order to distract us from the awful truth about the meaninglessness of everything, we need diversions, and this is the service that artists provide."  (Woody Allen’s Bleak Vision, nationalreview.com, Aug. 12, 2014)

Like millions of other evolutionary humanists in rebellion against our Heavenly Father, Woody Allen is a nihilist---a non-person.  The source of his nihilism is the belief that our Heavenly Father is dead and there is no Absolute Truth, that all truth is relative.  According to Eugene (Fr. Seraphim) Rose, nihilism is the basic philosophy of the 20th century:

"It has become, in our time, so widespread and pervasive, has entered so thoroughly and so deeply into the minds and hearts of all men living today, that there is no longer any 'front' on which it may be fought." The heart of this philosophy, he said, was "expressed most clearly by Nietzsche and by a character of Dostoyevsky in the phrase: 'God is dead, therefore man becomes God and everything is possible."  (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, oodegr.com)

Rev. Richard Wurmbrand (1909 –2001), a Romanian Christian minister of Jewish descent possesses penetrating insight into nihilism because it was his own philosophy for many years.  But after fourteen years of physical and mental torment in a man-made hell on earth operated by soulless psychopaths, this courageous pastor emerged with an unquenchable love for Jesus Christ and his fellow man.   According to Wurmbrand, nihilism freezes and hardens the souls of its' dehumanized believers:

 "You freeze when you think of yourself as only a complicated product of chemical reactions....You cannot see stars (or your soul) through the microscope or microbes through the telescope.  Men who cannot think rightly come to the conclusion that God does not exist because they cannot find Him through the senses, which are functions of life in the realm of matter.  Senses are not the right means to see God." (The Answer to the Atheist's Handbook, Wurmbrand, p. 105)

The common denominators of Allen's particular form of nihilism as well as those of militant secularism and its' theological and New Age Eastern oriented counterparts are the denial of the supernatural Triune God and creation ex nihilo, the fall (original sin), man as person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons, Moral Law, immutable Truth, Jesus Christ God enfleshed, His death and Resurrection, heaven and hell. 

Within the secular framework there is also denial of angels and demons, especially of Lucifer as the fallen angel Satan.  Other common denominators are the embrace of the idea of either pre-existing or spontaneously generated evolving matter and energy and mankind collectively dehumanized and reduced to aspects of the evolving universe.   All of these myths are validated by scientism---the instrument of fallen man's will.

Whether matter and energy are held to be eternally existing or spontaneously generated (Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) matters not since the common point of departure for all worldviews grounded in matter and energy is metaphysical nihilism,

"... This position has been held by philosophers such as Parmenides, Buddha, Advaita Vedantins, and perhaps Kant (according to some interpretations of his transcendental idealism). Blob theory can also be considered very closely aligned with mereological nihilism (there are no parts and wholes). Obviously if metaphysical nihilism is correct, empirical reality is an illusion." (What is Metaphysical Nihilism? OpenTopia.com)  

Concerned creationists have long pointed out that evolutionary scientism is at the heart of the spiritual and moral crisis facing modern man.  A booklet titled The Surrender to Secularism (Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation, 1967) written by Most Rev. Cuthbert O'Gara, former bishop of Yuanling, China, provides a powerful testimony to this truth.  Rev. O'Gara relates the following:
 
"When the Communist troops over-ran my diocese they were followed in short order by the propaganda corps---the civilian branch of the Red Forces---an organization...more fanatical, then the People's Army of Liberation itself.  The entire population, city and countryside, was immediately organized into distinctive categories (and) forced to attend the seminar specified for his or her proper category and there (forced to submit) to the official Communist line.   Now what...was the first lesson given to the indoctrinees?  The first, the fundamental, lesson...was man's descent from the ape---Darwinism!   Darwinism negates God, the human soul, the after-life.  Into this vacuum Communism enters as the be-all and end-all of the intellectual slavery it has created.  In the Red prison in which I was held, the slogan, 'Bring your mind over to us and all your troubles will end,' was hammered into the minds of the prisoners with brutal and numbing monotony.  Nothing but a groveling holocaust of the human person can satiate the lust for dominance of Peking’s Red Regime."  (Article 12: The Quintessential Evolutionist, waragainstbeing.com)  
 
All forms of the evolutionary scientism dominating our modern societies, from the Neo-Darwinism force-fed to our children to militant forms of secularism, occult New Age evolutionary pantheism and their evolutionary theological counterparts, all are variations of metaphysical nihilism demanding a holocaust of the human person: 

"It matters little whether we are dealing with Communism, Socialism, Nazism, abortion, the whole secular culture of perversity and death, the exclusion of God from public education, the crisis within the Church, or a whole host of other individual and social agendas – all are intimately related, and have as a powerful causative factor, belief in Darwinian Evolution." (ibid)

Within the Western civilized world, including America, the idea that everything in the universe reduces to matter and energy is found for example, in the thinking of global NWO socialists, America's progressive ruling class, the evolutionary 'Christianity' of Michael Dowd, the Hindu-pantheism of Teilhard de Chardin, the integral evolutionism of Ken Wilber, the dialectical materialism of Karl Marx, and the 20th century's murderous dictators, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot.

 In his article, "Leftism a Radical Faith," Bruce Riggs notes that much of the political history of the extended twentieth century is that of massive extinctions of citizenries by their dictatorial governments:   
 
"Take the engineered mass starvations, torture chambers, firing squads, and gulags of Lenin and Stalin; Nazi gas chambers; Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge killing fields; the genocides of Mao's "Great Leap Forward"; and the tyrannical North Korean Sung dynasty, and one will find that over one hundred million people
have been slaughtered." (American Thinker, Jan. 1, 2014)      

In one way or another, these dictatorial governments systematically dehumanized and murdered millions to create an imagined earthly Eden, said Riggs, and this is clearly irrational.  In this sense, leftist ideology is an atheist religion with the look of a religious inquisition. Klaus Fischer puts it this way:

 “[T]otalitarianism represents the twentieth-century version of traditional religiosity; it is in many ways the secular equivalent of the religious life. Unless this crucial point is captured, the quintessential nature of totalitarianism will elude us.” (ibid)  

This "totalitarian religiosity" is grounded in metaphysical nihilism and the dehumanization and reduction of mankind to aspects of the evolving universe on a par with slugs, weeds, and apes.  This evil religion continues today as a “scientific,” secular, politico-centric faith,

“....disdainful of theistic beliefs and contemptuous of those who subscribe to them.  It is a faith that, in its historical manifestations, has birthed the murderous tyrannies of the extended twentieth century -- tyrannies that have marched under left-wing banners of Marxism, Communism, and National Socialism, or, more generally and descriptively, Coercive Collectivism.” (ibid, Riggs)

As it was for murderous 20th century dictators, so it is for todays’ individual evolutionists that metaphysical nihilism and dehumanization of 'others' is liberating, at least during younger years when death is not yet a blip on the radar.  This is  because for the uncreated, liberated autonomous 'self' who is the measure of all things and whose life no longer has any ultimate meaning or purpose there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his debauched, even murderous friends should not do what they want to do.  But the nihilism, egotism, lying, perverse license, and sadistic pleasure attained through psychological domination and manipulation of dehumanized 'dupes' and their children, all of which nihilists rejoice in during their younger years becomes an unbearable source of  despair, horror, night terrors, dread, and thoughts of murder and suicide with the advent of old age and the approach of death.

 God, Heaven, Hell, Souls and Demons:  Do They Exist?

At issue for evolutionary humanists is the existence of the supernatural God of Revelation, the Heavenly Creator who spoke everything into existence ex nihilo.   Does He exist and did He reveal Himself to men or not?    Rebellious evolutionists say no, all that exists is the natural dimension of matter and energy in continuous motion measured by time that may or may not involve the working of a god invented and controlled by man. 

However, existence within the natural dimension of space and time is not the only form of existence.  Timeless is the supernatural realm (third heaven) of the eternally existing, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Holy God of Revelation. 

There are three heavens.  The first is the immediate sky, or earth's atmosphere. (Genesis 2:19; 7:3, 23; Psalms 8:8; Deuteronomy 11:17)  The second is the starry heavens or outer space. (Deuteronomy 17:3; Jeremiah 8:2; Matthew 24:29).  The third heaven is outside of time and space, meaning the first and second heavens, thus outside the reach of man's science.  The timeless heaven is where God and the holy angels and spirits of righteous men in possession of eternal life dwell and to which Paul was taken. (Deuteronomy 10:14; 1 Kings 8:27; Psalms 115:16; 148:4; 2 Cor.12:2)

Furthermore, all people who have had out-of-body experiences by way of near-death or drugs, astral plane travels, or through shamanism for example, can testify to the existence of their own souls as well as of the timeless abode of demons and fallen angels, the "spirits of wickedness under the heavens" (Eph. 6:12) and their chief, "the prince of the powers of the air." (Eph. 2:2) According to the Apostle Paul, fallen angels thrown down from the third heaven are dispersed in a multitude throughout the first heaven.  It is with this timeless abode of fallen angels and demons that shamans interact and to which astral plane travelers from the time of Nimrod to our own have been visiting. According to Francis Huxley and Jeremy Narby:

 "Western observers began participating in shamanistic sessions involving hallucinogenic plants, (and) found, to their astonishment, that they could have experiences similar to those described by shamans."   'Life' magazine popularized shamanism in a 1957 story, "In Mexico, American banker Gordon Wasson ate psilocybin mushrooms in a session conducted by (a) shaman."   Wasson described to 'Life's' readers his experience of "flying out of his body."  Narby and Huxley report that "hundreds of thousands of people read Wasson's account, and many followed his example."  (Modern Shamanism: Spirit Contact & Spiritual Progress, James Herrick, p. 17, from "On Global Wizardry, edited by Peter Jones) 

 When the soul comes out of its' body, as happened to the Satanist William Schnoebelen, it is immediately within the timeless realm of evil spirits.  According to early Church Fathers, if the soul is that of a faithful believer who has died it will be met by one of Gods’ Holy Angels and escorted to the third heaven.   If not, as was the case with Schnoebelen, it will meet with deceiving, malignant spirits.

William Schnoebelen was a great hardboiled sinner whose damnable transgressions included Satanism and receiving the mark of Satan during an out of body experience.  His autobiography, Lucifer Dethroned, is a gripping and horrifying account of his descent into the darkest, most frightening side of the occult, magick, spell-casting, vampirism, astral travel and Satanism and his subsequent restoration through grace and the love of Jesus Christ. 

Bill was a demonically-empowered Druidic high priest, high-order Mason, ordained spiritist minister and Satanist who frequently "went out of his body" into the timeless realm for various reasons.  As he tells it, one night he was "yanked" out of his body and drawn up through the paths of the Tree of Life toward the zone of Binah or Saturn.  His terrifying journey took him to a vast, obsidian trapezoidal shaped temple called the Cathedral of Pain situated in the midst of swirling stars. The inside walls were clear glass,
 
"...holding back a transparent green fluid.  Floating within the fluid...were hundreds of naked (horribly mutilated) human bodies.  They were all dead, most with expressions of exquisite terror etched in a rictus on their frozen faces."  Then a pillar of light struck an "obsidian throne," a sacrificial altar, and out of the light "appeared a huge being...robed in white…"  Mighty wings swept his shoulders.  At one moment the winged being was an incredibly handsome man, the next a "bull" and the next a "woman."  Chanting began in Latin: "Ave Satanas, Rege Satanas (Hail Satan, Satan Rules)"  Then the terrifying being reached out his left hand "and placed it on my forehead....I felt a claw tear into my brow (and) insert itself into my brain like a white-hot poker.."  Then a voice spoke: "Now you are mine forever."    (p. 157-159) 

 Schnoebelen was forced to return to the Cathedral of Pain a few more times before turning to Jesus Christ for salvation.  One night he finally got down on his knees and confessed,

 "...to the Lord that I was indeed a sinner---perhaps the chiefest of sinners (but) I repented (Luke 15:5) and confessed that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead so that I might have eternal life (Romans 10: 9-10).  I asked Jesus to save me from my sins (Romans 10: 13), and to be the absolute Lord of my life (Romans 12: 1-2)"    Jesus Christ forgave me and set me "free from unbelievable darkness and evil..."   Jesus Christ liberated his demonically oppressed soul."(p. 315)

All people, including 'scientifically enlightened' evolutionary nihilists live in a mysterious world of which we see in part, and that only darkly, because we are imprisoned in the jail of our senses.  But as Schnoebelen, shamanists and practicing occultists such as Carl Jung know, there are all about us and even here on earth powerful, intelligent beings that move so fast we cannot not see them, who emit rays outside the spectrum of our vision and communicate among themselves on a wavelength beyond what man can hear and apprehend, thus they can observe us, inflate our most disordered passions and influence our dreams and thoughts for good or bad.  They can also, by way of telepathy or automatic writing, transmit through someone like Nietzsche or Carl Jung teachings from the demonic realm. 

According to the highly celebrated Jung, Philemon, a winged, horned demon, supervised and inspired the writing of the "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)

Spirits can, and do, influence the minds of proud evolutionary humanists who then trumpet the nihilistic ideas dropped into their minds as their own brilliant ideas and do the work of devils by leading astray millions of people with their damnable soul-destroying teachings.

Evolutionary seculars and their theological and occult New Age counterparts commit grievous sins and live as if they will never die. But the God of Revelation, heaven, hell, angels and demons exist, and even now, without their knowledge, rebellious nihilists are being prepared to receive the mark of Satan on their foreheads unless they repent.   Before it's too late, let them learn from the despairing words of other adversaries of Jesus Christ:

 "I am suffering the pangs of the damned."  Talleyrand (ibid, Wurmbrand, p. 158

 "Give me laudanum that I may not think of eternity."  Mirabeau

 "I am abandoned by God and man.  I shall go to hell.  Oh Christ, oh Jesus Christ!" Voltaire

 "What blood, what murders, what evil counsels have I followed.  I am lost, I see it well." Charles IX, King of France

 "I would give worlds, if I had them, if the Age of Reason (an anti-Christian book) had never been published.  Oh, Lord, help me. Christ, help me.  Stay with me.  It is hell to be left alone." Thomas Paine

 "...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)

Nihilists are lost and spiritually blind--- to the reality of the timeless realms, but especially to the third heaven of our Heavenly Father.  So too are they are blind to the reality of their own frozen souls and to the existence of devils all around them for their foolish hearts are darkened (Rom. 1:21) and their thoughts evil (Gn. 6:5).  They are ignorant, guilty, and corrupt.  They have exchanged God's Revelation for scientism and His Truth and Way for a lie (Rom. 1:25), and their darkened minds are wholly blind to the saving Light of Christ that shines into the hearts of the faithful. (John 8:12)

From his own experience, Eugene Rose believed that a nihilist cannot come to Christ fully until he is first aware of how far he and his society have fallen away from Him, that is, until he has first faced the Nihilism in himself:

"The Nihilism of our age exists in all," he wrote, “and those who do not, with the aid of God, choose to combat it in the name of the fullness of Being of the living God, are swallowed up in it already. We have been brought to the edge of the abyss of nothingness and, whether we recognize its nature or not, we will, through affinity for the ever-present nothingness within us, be engulfed in it beyond all hope of redemption-unless we cling in full and certain faith (which doubting, does not doubt) to Christ, without Whom we are truly nothing."  (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, oodegr.com)

"This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil."  "For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.… (John 3:19-20)

For all who repent of their sins, combat their nihilism with the aid of God and unite with the faithful who persevere in the Way of Christ, death is merely a doorway to eternal physical life, first in the third heaven for a while, then in a physical Paradise---the earth and heavens renewed and remade in unimaginably wondrous ways.   But for the stubborn, dehumanized nihilist who prefers darkness to Light the approach of old age and death are accompanied by increasing afflictions of the mind---despair, depression, nightmares, inexplicable feelings of dread and horror---because beyond the grave lies only eternal remorse in utter darkness.

A 'New' Spirituality for Highly Evolved Humanity

"Every year thousands of people visit Damanhur to try out the social model, study the philosophy and to meditate in the Temples of Humankind, that great underground construction excavated by hand by the citizens of Damanhur and which many have called the ‘Eighth wonder of the world’.  (The Temples of Humankind, damanhur.org)

Under construction since 1978, the Temple of Humankind is 100 feet below ground inside a mountain near the northern Italian city of Vidracco.   The incredibly beautiful cathedral is dedicated to the divine nature of humanity.  It is not therefore a place of prayer to the personal Triune God who spoke everything into existence in six days but rather a place for inward contemplation of and meditation to the divine god-force or energy within self.  Its' builders describe the Temple as a great three dimensional book which recounts the history of Humankind through all the art forms, a path of re-awakening to the Divine inside and outside of ourselves.
 
The Temple of Humankind is the latest in a long line of high places and/or astral temples raised up at the direction of an internationalist occult spiritual elite. (2 Kings 17: 16-17) These temples are where they gather to plan and plot a totalitarian world order, channel the divine within and chant in unison their eerie Great Invocation. 
 
In 1962 Edith Kermit Roosevelt attended a benefit dinner held to inaugurate the first American astral temple--- the Temple of Understanding built on 50 acres by the Potomac River, Washington, D. C.   The temple serves as a "Spiritual United Nations" designed to fulfill the rituals of a 'new' pagan spirituality encompassing forms of the feminine spirit which has unfolded over the centuries from Egypt, Babylonia, China and Europe.  (The Temple of Understanding, The New Hampshire Sunday Times News,  Edith Kermit Roosevelt, April 1, 1962)
 
Among the Temple's influential backers were John D. Rockefeller IV, Socialist leader Norman Thomas, Rt.Rev. James A. Pike of San Francisco, Cary Grant, Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara, a founding member of the Fund for the Republic's Center for Democratic Institutions; militant pacifist and Nobel Peace Prize and Nobel Peace Prize winner Philip Noel Baker; Holland D. Roberts of the Academic Freedom Committee, a former head of the Communist party's  California Labor School who was identified as a "party member" at a  Jan. 22, 1956 hearing of the Subversive Activities Control Board; U. Alexis Johnson, deputy undersecretary of state for political  affairs; Sen. Kenneth B. Keating (R-N.Y.), Prof. Pitirim A. Sorokin, director of Harvard University's Research Center for  Creative Altruism and Brooks Hays, special assistant to President Kennedy. (ibid, Roosevelt)

In an essay entitled, "Is Crestone/Baca, Colorado 'the Vatican City of the New World Order?” Dr. Eric Karlstrom describes another of the occult elite's high places.  This one consists of 25 spiritual centers including a ziggeraut.   These include,
 
"... Dharma Ocean (Buddhist), Chamma Ling (Tibetan Bon religion), Karma Thegsum Tashi Gomang (Tibetan Buddhist), Nur Ashki Jerrahi (Crestone Sufi Circle), Vajra Vidya Retreat Center (Tibetan Buddhist); I Am Harmony, Crestone Baptist Church, Yeshe Khorlo (Bhutanese Tibetan Buddhist), The Academy of On, Oniyan Wakan Tipi (Lakota Sacred Breath Lodge), Meditation Place of the Vast Expanse (Tibetan Buddhist), Shumei International Institute (Japanese), Dragon Mountain Zen Center, Nada Carmelite Hermitage (Catholic), The Way of Nature Fellowship, The Sri Auribindo Learning Center, Crestone Mountain Zen Center, Haidakhandi Universal Ashram (Hindu), Sacred Mountains Foundation Inc. (Navajo), Little Shepard of the Hills Episcopal Church, The Pundarika Foundation (Tibetan Buddhist) and The Desert Foundation (Catholic ecumenical).....  a Moslem Ziggurat, a Tibetan Peace Park, and a Crestone End of Life Cremation Project." (Karlstrom, January, 2012, naturalclimatechange.us)

All of these temples and astral gates are extensions of the occult global elites' temple complex in New York City consisting of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding, the UN (in particular its’ pyramid-shaped meditation room,) and Lucis Trust, originally named Lucifer Trust, repository for the “Ageless Wisdom Teaching” (revelations from spirits) whose taproot stretches back to the plain of Shinar, and according to New Age historians, to Atlantis, pre-flood site of the very first Mystery Religion.
 
In this light it is no wonder that in the bestselling "The Aquarian Conspiracy," Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) enthusiastically reports that a great, shuddering irrevocable shift in consciousness is overtaking us,

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

In light of the international occult elites' successful global temple project it is not surprising that  when Earth Day was inaugurated in 1970 the New York Times enthusiastically hailed it as an idea whose time has come because earth (Gaia) needs to be saved,

 “…from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” (All for Gaia: Earth Day and Total Transformation for a Post-Christian World, Carl Teichrib, Apr. 19, 2011, Forcing Change)

Goddess Earth needs to be saved from the cancerous growth of mankind:

“...unless the earth’s cancerous growth of population can be halted, all other problems---poverty, war, racial strife, uninhabitable cities, and the rest---are beyond solution.” (ibid, The Environmental Handbook, John Fischer, p. 139) 

Stabilizing the U.S. population should be declared a national policy.  Immediate steps should be taken to explore alternative lifestyles, sexual orientations, group and polyandrous marriage.  We must:

“Legalize voluntary abortion and sterilization and provide these services free…Remove all restrictions on the provision of birth control….and devices; provide these services free to all, including minors…Make sex education available to all appropriate levels, stressing birth control…and need to stabilize the population.” (ibid, Keith Murray, pp. 317-318)

In complete contrast to ancient paganism and Asia’s mystical pantheist religions and their gender ideal, androgyny, the Word of God and Christian theism not only established unbridgeable distinctions between God and man, man and nature, man and woman, holy and unholy, and good and evil but also insisted that it is our Heavenly Fathers's will that men and women, His spiritual image bearers, are to marry, procreate and take dominion over nature.  It is all of this that is behind the “intolerable deterioration” of mother earth due to the cancerous growth of human beings.

Since the roots of our trouble are largely orthodox Christian theism and faithful Judaism, the remedy must be essentially religious.   Nothing short of total transformation of consciousness, a counter-conversion away from the supernatural Holy God, creation ex nihilo, Imago Dei, and Christianity and Judaism to evolutionary cosmogonies, the pagan gender ideal and occult spirituality will suffice; therefore let the following nature systems be encouraged:

Gnostics, hip Marxists, Teilhard de Chardin Catholics, Druids, Taoists, Biologists, Witches, Yogins, Bhikkus,  Quakers, Sufis, Tibetans, Zens, Shamans, Bushmen, American Indians, Polynesians, Anarchists, Alchemists…the list is long.  All primitive cultures, all communal and ashram movements must be encouraged."    Since direct bloody force is not desirable or practical, a revolution of consciousness will not be won by guns and force but by seizing and transforming key Biblical and Christian symbols, Genesis--the book of beginnings-- eschatologies, and terminology so that “life won’t seem worth living unless one’s on the transforming energy’s side.” (ibid, Four Changes, p. 331)

 In order to save the world, our present religious, political, educational, economic and social structures must be dramatically transformed towards a holistic or communalistic (pantheist) New Age world-view wherein the human being is no longer created but evolved and no longer male and female distinct from the natural order with a living, personal Creator standing outside and above both.  Rather an evolving god-force and androgynous humans reside within and are aspects of Void--- the ultimate One Substance.

By the start of the 21st century the New Age network has finally established a massive and expansive back-to-nature trend among the masses known as transformational festivals.   These festivals are held all over the world drawing anywhere from a few hundred to hundreds of thousands.  From Burning Man (Nev.) to Tomorrow Land (Georgia), Three Days of Light (N.C.), Symbiosis (Nev.), Luminate (New Zealand), Ascendance (Mex.), Inshala (Alberta), Transformus (New Jersey), Open Mind (Quebec), Fusion (Germany), Ozora (Hungary), Envision (Costa Rica) and Universo Paralello (Brazil), to name but a few, this is an explosive global movement, a revival of ancient occult pantheist spirituality and evolutionary change that utterly rejects the old order and its' intolerable 'religion,' meaning faithful Christianity and Judaism.  (Celebrations for Transformation, Carl Teichrib, Forcing Change, Vol. 7, Aug. 2013)

Transformational festivals are counter-culture movements focusing on eco-friendly sustainable living, green energy, organic and/or vegan food, honoring of sacred space and Mother Earth, demonic healing, and participation in community rituals such kundalini yoga, tantric sex, and Ecstatic Core Ritual provided by trance or electronic dance music.  Ecstatic dancing often leads participants to attain the altered states of consciousness documented in some Native American shamanic rituals.

Ecstatic dancing is but one way of attaining altered states of consciousness.  Among other occult techniques for getting in touch with the 'Christ consciousness,' inner 'light,' the 'Force,' 'serpent power' and the 'Mind of the Universe,' for example, are strenuous physical exercises, psychotropic drugs, mind science, chanting, psychodrama, sensitivity groups, Zen, hypnosis, transcendental meditation, and body disciplines such as hatha yoga and aikido.

The altered state of consciousness by which a man enters into communion with intelligent spirits of the unseen realm is called "opening of the senses" in Scripture:

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

According to the Watchman Expositor, all psycho-technologies are hypnosis techniques linked to Babylon, the mother of all Mystery Religions, as well as to ancient pagan practices and eastern mystical experiences, involving similar trance states or altered states of consciousness. Such altered states are essential to such practices as out-of-body experiences, astral projection, and Yoga. William Kroger, M.D. and William Fezler Ph.D. maintain that,

"...hypnosis has been practiced in one form or another in the civilized and uncivilized world under many different labels since the dawn of history."  (Hypnosis, James K. Walker, allwatchman.org)

They further note that historically elements of hypnosis have been an integral part of pagan religious practices and world religions including Assyro-Babylonian exorcism, Egyptian soothsaying, Jewish mysticism, Chinese Taoism , Sufism, Hinduism, Shintoism, forms of Buddhism (Tibetan and Zen), and Yoga. (Hypnosis and Behavior Modification, pp. 6-8; ibid).  

In  'Recognitions'  church father Clement records an evil deed of the Gnostic pagan magician Simon that bears a striking resemblance to the effects of modern psycho-technologies.   Clement reports that Simon had begun to commit murder by inducing a child to experience an out of body experience.  By way of mesmerizing,

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

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

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

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

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

In secularized Westerners and both undiscerning and apostatizing Christians alike, altered states by whatever means eventually end in altered world view:

"Self-induced, mind-emptying and mind-altering disciplines/devices desensitize the Christian's sensitivity to biblical reality as the mind abandons its defenses and letting go of restraints, no longer can discern truth from error.   Mind-emptying meditation, like that promoted in sensitivity training groups related to the Human Potential Movement, has as its philosophical foundation the mantra of, 'accept anything as valid.'  So there is to be no questioning (there are no wrong answers), challenging or negativity expressed against the new sensitivities.  To this end, entering an altered state of consciousness serves to anesthetize persons against discernment as they are overcome by a lax, apathetic and permissive state of mind.  This happens in spite of the biblical call to be sober-minded." (Altered States: A Different Gate, Sarah Leslie and Pastor Larry DeBruyn, Apr. 28, 2011, Herescope) 

Kurt Koch (1913-1987) was a highly respected German minister who pastored, counseled and delivered somewhere around twenty thousand people suffering from demonic subjection in its various forms and manifestations throughout the world.  It may well be that there is no one with more first-hand experience and knowledge in the field of Satanism than Koch.  According to Koch, one of the first things to become subject to the devil’s influence during trance states (altered state of consciousness) is a person’s thoughts and feelings:

This often results in a complete attitude of indifference to any spiritual influence, and to an open rejection of any belief in God.  The Word of God loses its power to speak, and God’s promises become meaningless.  The person finds he can only entertain evil thoughts in his mind and ideas which are opposed to God.  He is gripped with a passion for lying and impure thoughts.  Indeed, the desire to lie so fills him that he does so unconsciously. In spite of feeling no remorse for his sins, he will be plagued with a continuous feeling of restlessness, with a lack of peace, and depressive moods.”  (Occult Bondage, p. 140)

The emerging occult spiritual New World Order is also receiving support and validation from the scientific community.  In “The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition,” James Herrick writes that physicists,

“….claim to have irrefutable scientific proof for the foundational pantheism of the Other Spirituality.” (p. 169)

For example, in the “Quantum Society,” physics writers Danah Zohar and Ian Marshall advocate a new esoteric science of pantheism, psychology and sociology grounded 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)

The ultimate discovery of the New Physics is scientific proof of the basic correctness of Benedict Spinoza’s pantheistic theology---nature is the god substance.

According to Zohar and Marshall, the fundamental physics underlying all else in the universe consist  of two sorts of particles, bosons and fermions.  Fermions “are particles that make up things” including “protons, neutrons, and electrons, the basic constituents of the atom.”   In other words, “all of the matter of the universe is made of fermions.”  (ibid)

Thus there are only two kinds of things in the universe, and all of one kind is what we call physical matter.  The other kind of thing is spiritual and mental boson particles.  Bosons are the fundamental spiritual/mental forces that “bind the universe together---the electromagnetic, the gravitational, the strong and weak nuclear…”   Since bosons appear to “like clustering together,” consciousness and social qualities are most likely boson phenomena.  (ibid)

Both physicists contend that the boson is implicated in basic evolutionary processes, thus there is a “whole new ‘metaphysic” of the human in the history of the boson:

If the tendency of two bosons to bunch together at the most basic level of early physical processes can be traced in unbroken sequence to the principles underlying the physical basis for conscious mind,” then “we have traced the origins of the human mind back to primordial physical reality.”  (ibid)

This means that in the social tendencies of ‘thinking’ bosons physicists have discovered the evolutionary origins of the human soul (self) since the boson is the critical link between the previously immaterial soul (prior to emanating into a material body) and the evolutionary emanation or emergence of both biological life on earth and of the universe itself.

 Zohar and Marshal conclude that there is no longer any basis in the quantum worldview for any “ontological distinction between the human and the natural.”  Their conclusion represents “a radical shift away from the whole earlier Western worldview,” thus is applauded and greatly appreciated by New World Order occult pantheist globalists.

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 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)

The Void is the ultimate ground of being and true mystical religious experience. As the beginning and ending of all reality, the Void or vacuum is “the vast sea of all else that is.”  Moreover, humans are excited modes of the Void:

“…the vacuum has the same physical structure as human consciousness.”  As this is the case, then the soul of the Void and soul of the human are one and the same substance.  “There is…quite possibly a common physics linking human consciousness to the ground state of ‘everything that ever existed or can exist’ in the universe (and we) are part of it.  Each one of us as an individual is an excitation of the vacuum, an individual being on the sea of Being” and this is a straightforward conclusion of “orthodox physics.  It is…proven.” (pp. 172-173)

Whether matter is held to be eternally existing or spontaneously generated (Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) matters not since the common point of departure for all worldviews grounded in matter and energy is metaphysical nihilism,

"... This position has been held by philosophers such as Parmenides, Buddha, Advaita Vedantins, and perhaps Kant (according to some interpretations of his transcendental idealism). Blob theory can also be considered very closely aligned with mereological nihilism (there are no parts and wholes). Obviously if metaphysical nihilism is correct, empirical reality is an illusion." (What is Metaphysical Nihilism? OpenTopia.com)  

In other words, the Void is nothing, and the essential material and energy that modern "scientifically" enlightened men bow down before is dead, their attributes are but the qualities of senseless substances unable to produce life, consciousness and soul.  Psalm 135: 15

The 'New' Spirituality   

 In “Ancient Paganism: the Sorcery of Fallen Angels,” Ken Johnson writes that Lucifer persuaded pre-flood people to believe that the Creator God no longer existed because He had emptied Himself into His own creation.  So now all that actually exists is a creative force or ground of being that makes it possible for each person to evolve into god after death.  Out of this pre-flood seedbed there eventually bloomed in the post-flood world the mother of all  Mystery Religions at Babylon followed by Babylonian Cabala, Egyptian Hermetic magic, all nature systems, pantheism, evolution (transformation), reincarnation, occultism, spiritualism, and the Doctrine of Emanation.

According to the doctrine of emanation, the entire universe, all spirit, life, and even all of the gods, human beings, and everything else, came about by a process of emanation (or unfolding, emergence or evolution) from the Ultimate Ground of Being (Void, Abyss, Brahman, Omega).  Just as waves form across the surface of the ocean, so the Void forms upon itself successive waves (emanations) of entities that in turn emanate further entities and so on, with all of these entities interacting within an extraordinary network or great chain of being consisting of downward-sloping self-contained planes of existence, a top-down hierarchy of astral plane realities arranged vertically.

 Each higher plane of existence emanates the one below it through a process of emanation, thus each plane stands in the position of ground of being (god) to the one below it.  Therefore creation is not creation ex nihilo, as the Genesis account teaches, but emanation out of the Void, the ultimate ground of being.

 Each plane of existence has its own specific characteristics, thus there can be a plane where spirit or thought forms exist; where the Gnostic demiurge, the evil Jehovah, god of material creation exists; the realm of the deities, demons, heavens, hells, angels, and so on, realm upon realm, all looking downwards to the physical realm and also looking upwards to the Void or quantum vacuum.

Pantheism, hypnotic techniques, demonic bondage and possession, evolutionary transformation (change) and the Doctrine of Emanation first appeared in the pre-flood world of Noah and now have taken up residence in America thanks to our obsession with occult spirituality, science, evolution and Western quantum physics, the ‘new’ scientific foundation for pantheistic religion.  Under the banner of pantheism and evolution (emanation), science and nature theology have become virtually indistinguishable one from the other, a cause for celebration among global New Age socialist totalitarians, the vanguard leading the world into the same errors that ended in catastrophe.

Woody Allen's Frozen Soul

Rev. Robert Barron was chagrined, but not entirely surprised when he read Woody Allen’s recent ruminations on ultimate things. To state it bluntly, said Rev. Barron, Woody could not be any bleaker in regard to the issue of meaning in the universe. We live, he said,

"... in a godless and purposeless world. The earth came into existence through mere chance and one day it, along with every work of art and cultural accomplishment, will be incinerated. The universe as a whole will expand and cool until there is nothing left but the void. Every hundred years or so, he continued, a coterie of human beings will be “flushed away” and another will replace it until it is similarly eliminated. So why does he bother making films — roughly one every year? Well, he explained, in order to distract us from the awful truth about the meaninglessness of everything, we need diversions, and this is the service that artists provide."  (Woody Allen’s Bleak Vision, nationalreview.com, Aug. 12, 2014)

By his own willful choice, Woody Allen is a nihilist---a dehumanized evolutionary atheist.  The source of his nihilism is the belief that our Heavenly Father is dead and there is no Absolute Truth, that all truth is relative.    According to Eugene (Fr. Seraphim) Rose, nihilism is the basic philosophy of the 20th century:

"It has become, in our time, so widespread and pervasive, has entered so thoroughly and so deeply into the minds and hearts of all men living today, that there is no longer any 'front' on which it may be fought." The heart of this philosophy, he said, was "expressed most clearly by Nietzsche and by a character of Dostoyevsky in the phrase: 'God is dead, therefore man becomes God and everything is possible."  (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, oodegr.com)

Rev. Richard Wurmbrand (1909 –2001), a Romanian Christian minister of Jewish descent possesses keen insight into nihilism because it was his own philosophy at one time.  But after fourteen years of physical and mental torment in an atheist created hell on earth, this courageous pastor emerged with an unquenchable love for Jesus Christ and his fellow man.   According to Wurmbrand, nihilism freezes and hardens the souls of its' dehumanized believers:

"You freeze when you think of yourself as only a complicated product of chemical reactions....You cannot see stars (or your soul) through the microscope or microbes through the telescope.  Men who cannot think rightly come to the conclusion that God does not exist because they cannot find Him through the senses, which are functions of life in the realm of matter.  Senses are not the right means to see God." (The Answer to the Atheist's Handbook, Wurmbrand, p. 105)

The common denominators of Allen's particular form of nihilism as well as those of militant secularism and its' theological and New Age Eastern oriented counterparts are the denial of the supernatural Triune God, the fall (original sin), man as person (enfleshed soul) because created in the image of the One God in three Persons, Moral Law, immutable Truth, the Incarnation, Resurrection, heaven and hell.  Within the secular framework there is denial of angels and demons as well.  Other common denominators are the embrace of the idea of either pre-existing or spontaneously generated evolving matter and energy together with mankind collectively dehumanized and reduced to aspects of the evolving universe made valid by scientism---the instrument of man's will.

Whether matter and energy are held to be eternally existing or spontaneously generated (Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) matters not since the common point of departure for all worldviews grounded in matter and energy is metaphysical nihilism,

"... This position has been held by philosophers such as Parmenides, Buddha, Advaita Vedantins, and perhaps Kant (according to some interpretations of his transcendental idealism). Blob theory can also be considered very closely aligned with mereological nihilism (there are no parts and wholes). Obviously if metaphysical nihilism is correct, empirical reality is an illusion." (What is Metaphysical Nihilism? OpenTopia.com)  

Concerned creationists have long pointed out that evolutionary scientism is at the heart of the spiritual and moral crisis facing modern man.  A booklet titled The Surrender to Secularism (Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation, 1967) written by Most Rev. Cuthbert O'Gara, former bishop of Yuanling, China, provides a powerful testimony to this truth.  Rev. O'Gara relates the following:
 
"When the Communist troops over-ran my diocese they were followed in short order by the propaganda corps---the civilian branch of the Red Forces---an organization...more fanatical, then the People's Army of Liberation itself.  The entire population, city and countryside, was immediately organized into distinctive categories (and) forced to attend the seminar specified for his or her proper category and there (forced to submit) to the official Communist line.   Now what...was the first lesson given to the indoctrinees?  The first, the fundamental, lesson...was man's descent from the ape---Darwinism!   Darwinism negates God, the human soul, the after-life.  Into this vacuum Communism enters as the be-all and end-all of the intellectual slavery it has created.  In the Red prison in which I was held, the slogan, 'Bring your mind over to us and all your troubles will end,' was hammered into the minds of the prisoners with brutal and numbing monotony.  Nothing but a groveling holocaust of the human person can satiate the lust for dominance of Pekings's Red Regime."  ( Article 12: The Quintessential Evolutionist, waragainstbeing.com)  
 
All forms of the metaphysical nihilism dominating our modern societies, from the Darwinism force-fed to our children to militant forms of secularism, occult New Age evolutionary pantheism and their evolutionary theological counterparts are forms of metaphysical nihilism demanding a holocaust of the human person: 

"It matters little whether we are dealing with Communism, Socialism, Nazism, abortion, the whole secular culture of perversity and death, the exclusion of God from public education, the crisis within the Church, or a whole host of other individual and social agendas – all are intimately related, and have as a powerful causative factor, belief in Darwinian Evolution." (ibid)

Within the Western civilized world, including America, the idea that everything in the universe reduces to matter and energy is found for example, in the thinking of global NWO socialists,  America's progressive ruling class, the evolutionary 'Christianity' of Michael Dowd, the Hindu-pantheism of Teilhard de Chardin, the integral evolutionism of Ken Wilber, the dialectical materialism of Karl Marx, and the 20th century's murderous dictators, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot.

In his article, "Leftism a Radical Faith," Bruce Riggs notes that much of the political history of the extended twentieth century is that of massive extinctions of citizenries by their dictatorial governments:   
 
"Take the engineered mass starvations, torture chambers, firing squads, and gulags of Lenin and Stalin; Nazi gas chambers; Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge killing fields; the genocides of Mao's "Great Leap Forward"; and the tyrannical North Korean Sung dynasty, and one will find that over one hundred million people have been slaughtered." (American Thinker, Jan. 1, 2014)      

In one way or another, these dictatorial governments systematically dehumanized and murdered millions to create an imagined earthly Eden, said Riggs, and this is clearly irrational.  In this sense, leftist ideology is an atheist religion with the look of a religious inquisition. Klaus Fischer puts it this way:

“[T]otalitarianism represents the twentieth-century version of traditional religiosity; it is in many ways the secular equivalent of the religious life. Unless this crucial point is captured, the quintessential nature of totalitarianism will elude us.” (ibid)  

This "totalitarian religiosity" is grounded in metaphysical nihilism and the dehumanization and reduction of mankind to aspects of the evolving universe on a par with trees, slugs, weeds, and apes.  This evil religion continues today as a “scientific,” secular, politico-centric faith,

“....disdainful of theistic beliefs and contemptuous of those who subscribe to them.  It is a faith that, in its historical manifestations, has birthed the murderous tyrannies of the extended twentieth century -- tyrannies that have marched under left-wing banners of Marxism, Communism, and National Socialism, or, more generally and descriptively, Coercive Collectivism.” (ibid, Riggs)

For individual evolutionists, metaphysical nihilism and dehumanization of 'others'  is liberating, at least during younger years when death is not even a blip on the radar.  This is  because for the uncreated, liberated autonomous 'self' who is the measure of all things and whose life no longer has any ultimate meaning or purpose there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his debauched friends should not live in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves.  But the nihilism, egotism, lying, perverse license, and sadistic pleasure attained through psychological domination and manipulation of dehumanized 'dupes' and their children, all of which nihilists rejoice in during their younger years becomes an unbearable source of  despair, horror, night terrors, dread, and thoughts of murder and suicide with the advent of old age and the approach of death.

The Supernatural God, Heaven, Hell, Souls and Demons:  Do They Exist?

At issue is the existence of the supernatural God of Revelation, the Heavenly Creator of all that exists.   Does He exist and did He reveal Himself to men or not?    Evolutionists say no, all that exists is the natural dimension of matter and energy in continuous motion measured by time that may or may not involve the working of a nature god controlled by man. 

However, existence within the natural dimension of space and time is not the only form of existence.  Timeless is the supernatural realm (third heaven) of the eternally existing, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Holy God of Revelation, the sphere of Spirit, self-existence, eternity.

Furthermore, all people who have had out-of-body experiences by way of near-death, astral plane travels, shamanism, or by way of drugs for example, can testify to the existence of their own souls and of the timeless realm.  According to Francis Huxley and Jeremy Narby:

"Western observers began participating in shamanistic sessions involving hallucinogenic plants, (and) found, to their astonishment, that they could have experiences similar to those described by shamans."   'Life' magazine popularized shamanism in a 1957 story, "In Mexico, American banker Gordon Wasson ate psilocybin mushrooms in a session conducted by (a) shaman."   Wasson described to 'Life's' readers his experience of "flying out of his body."  Narby and Huxley report that "hundreds of thousands of people read Wasson's account, and many followed his example."  (Modern Shamanism: Spirit Contact & Spiritual Progress, James Herrick, p. 17 from "On Global Wizardry, edited by Peter Jones) 

When the soul comes out of its' body, as happened to the Satanist William Schnoebelen, it is immediately within the realm of timelessness and spirits in which there is no before and after, no cause and no effect.

William Schnoebelen was a great hardboiled sinner whose damnable transgressions  included Satanism and receiving the mark of Satan during an out of body experience.  His autobiography, Lucifer Dethroned, is a gripping and horrifying account of his descent into the darkest, most frightening side of the occult, magick, spell-casting, vampirism, astral travel and Satanism and his subsequent restoration through grace and the love of Jesus Christ. 

Bill was a demonically-empowered Druidic high priest, high-order Mason, ordained spiritist minister and Satanist who frequently "went out of his body" into the timeless realm for various reasons.  As he tells it, one night he was "yanked" out of his body and drawn up through the paths of the Tree of Life toward the zone of Binah or Saturn.  His terrifying journey took him to a vast, obsidian trapezoidal shaped temple called the Cathedral of Pain situated in the midst of swirling stars. The inside walls were clear glass,
 
"...holding back a transparent green fluid.  Floating within the fluid...were hundreds of naked (horribly mutilated) human bodies.  They were all dead, most with expressions of exquisite terror etched in a rictus on their frozen faces."  Then a pillar of light struck an "obsidian throne," a sacrificial altar, and out of the light "appeared a huge being...robed in white.."  Mighty wings swept his shoulders.  One moment the winged being was an incredibly handsome man, the next a "bull" and the next a "woman."  Chanting began in Latin: "Ave Satanas, Rege Satanas (Hail Satan, Satan Rules)"  Then the terrifying being reached out his left hand "and placed it on my forehead....I felt a claw tear into my brow (and) insert itself into my brain like a white-hot poker.."  Then a voice spoke: "Now you are mine forever."    (p. 157-159) 

Schnoebelen was forced to return to the Cathedral of Pain a few more times before turning to Jesus Christ for salvation.  One night he finally got down on his knees and confessed,

"...to the Lord that I was indeed a sinner---perhaps the chiefest of sinners (but) I repented (Luke 15:5) and confessed that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead so that I might have eternal life (Romans 10: 9-10).  I asked Jesus to save me from my sins (Romans 10: 13), and to be the absolute Lord of my life (Romans 12: 1-2)"    Jesus Christ forgave me and set me "free from unbelievable darkness and evil..."   Jesus Christ liberated my spiritually oppressed soul."(p. 315)

All people, including 'scientifically enlightened' evolutionary nihilists live in a mysterious world of which we see only darkly because we are imprisoned in the jail of our senses.  But as Schnoebelen, shamanists and practicing occultists such as Carl Jung know, there are on earth powerful, intelligent beings that move so fast we cannot not see them, who emit rays outside the spectrum of our vision and communicate among themselves on a wavelength beyond what man can hear and apprehend, thus they can observe us, inflate our most disordered passions and even influence our dreams and thoughts for good or bad without our knowledge. 

According to the highly celebrated Jung, Philemon, a winged, horned demon, supervised and inspired the writing of the "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)

Unseen spirits can, and do, influence the minds of evolutionists who then trumpet the nihilistic ideas dropped into their minds as their own and then do the work of devils by leading astray millions of people with their damnable soul-destroying teachings.

Evolutionary seculars and their theological and occult New Age counterparts commit grievous sins and live as if they will never die. But the God of Revelation, heaven, hell, angels and demons exist and even now, without their knowledge, they are being prepared to receive the mark of Satan on their foreheads.   Before it's too late, let them learn from the despairing words of other nihilistic adversaries of Jesus Christ:

"I am suffering the pangs of the damned."  Tallyrand (ibid, Wurmbrand, p. 158

"Give me laudanum that I may not think of eternity."  Mirabeau

"I am abandoned by God and man.  I shall go to hell.  Oh Christ, oh Jesus Christ!" oltaire

"What blood, what murders, what evil counsels have I followed.  I am lost, I see it well." Charles IX, King of France

"I would give worlds, if I had them, if the Age of Reason (an anti-Christian book) had never been published.  Oh, Lord, help me. Christ, help me.  Stay with me. It is hell to be left alone." Thomas Paine

"...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 Jurgens, To Hell and Back, pp. 76-77)

Nihilists are lost and spiritually blind--- to the existence of the timeless supernatural realm of our Heavenly Father, to the existence of devils all around them and to their own frozen souls. 

Their foolish hearts are darkened (Rom. 1:21) and their thoughts evil (Gn. 6:5).  They are ignorant, guilty, and corrupt.   In their folly they boast of great scientific knowledge and wisdom--- but it is grounded in nihilism (nothingness).  They have exchanged God's Revelation for scientism and His Truth for a lie (Rom. 1:25), and their minds, being blinded by the god of this world are wholly blind to the saving Light of Christ that shines into the hearts of the faithful. (John 8:12):

"This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil."  "For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.…(John 3:19-20)

From his own experience, Eugene Rose believed that modern man cannot come to Christ fully until he is first aware of how far he and his society have fallen away from Him, that is, until he has first faced the Nihilism in himself:

 "The Nihilism of our age exists in all," he wrote, " and those who do not, with the aid of God, choose to combat it in the name of the fullness of Being of the living God, are swallowed up in it already. We have been brought to the edge of the abyss of nothingness and, whether we recognize its nature or not, we will, through affinity for the ever-present nothingness within us, be engulfed in it beyond all hope of redemption-unless we cling in full and certain faith (which doubting, does not doubt) to Christ, without Whom we are truly nothing."  (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, oodegr.com)

For all who repent of their sins, combat their nihilism with the aid of God and unite with the faithful who persevere in the Way of Christ, death is merely a doorway to eternal physical life in a physical Paradise---the earth and heavens renewed and remade in unimaginably wondrous ways.   But for the stubborn, dehumanized nihilist, "blinded by the god of this age"  the approach of old age and death are accompanied by afflictions of the mind---despair, depression, night terrors, inexplicable feelings of dread and horror---because beyond the grave lies only remorse.

Saved by Christ from Satan's Cathedral of Pain

In "The Dissonance Of Sin" Rev. Joshua Martin, a graduate of Westminster Seminary California and an ordained minister of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church who serves as the Pastor of Redeemer Church (OPC) in Santa Maria, CA., said that although good theology is vital it is nevertheless not true to say “good theology leads to good living.” This is because our behavior is not always rational according to our beliefs. This being the case, good theology, good preaching and good teaching will not inoculate the Church against sin:

"Seminary students or young ministers who read this blog should know that there may come a time in your ministry when one of the covenant youth comes up to you after the service and says to you, “Father is a raging alcoholic,” and it will be someone you regarded as a pillar in the congregation. You may get a call at 12:30 AM, and a lady of the congregation will inform you that her husband just walked out of their 30 + year marriage and into the arms of his mistress, and the man in question will be an elder of your session. When this happens you will disbelieve your ears because these accusations will be contrary to everything you thought you knew about this person." (Heidel Blog, August, 2014)

Such sad occasions are reminders for the congregation that in the visible church there are undiscovered tares among the wheat, including “Judases” who are insincere in their profession of faith.  But then there are also “Peters,” true Christians ensnared by the deceitfulness of sin who may outwardly appear no different than a Judas. The difference is  that God, Who sees into the hearts of all men, has committed himself to renewing "Peter" to repentance and restoring him into Christian fellowship.

In 1544 Martin Luther wrote a letter to George of Spalt, a "Peter"  who being overcome by guilt refused to be consoled by the Gospel of the Grace of Christ. Luther wrote,

"My faithful request and admonition is that you join our company and associate with us, who are real, great, and hard-boiled sinners! You must by no means make Christ to seem petty and trivial to us—as though He could be our Helper only when we want to be rid from imaginary, nominal, and childish sins. No, no! That would not be good for us. Christ must rather be a Savior and Redeemer from real, great, grievous and damnable transgressions and iniquities—yes, from the very greatest and most shocking sins…One time Dr. Staupitz comforted me …He said to me: ‘Aha! You want to be a painted sinner, and accordingly, expect to have in Christ a painted Savior! You will have to get used to the belief that Christ is a real Savior and that you are a real sinner! For God is neither jesting nor dealing in imaginary affairs, but He was greatly and most assuredly in earnest when He sent His own Son into the world and sacrificed Him for our sakes." (ibid, Rev. Martin)

William Schnoebelen was a "Peter" who did not know he was a "Peter."   He was a real, great hardboiled sinner whose "grievous and damnable transgressions and iniquities" included Satanism and receiving the mark of Satan during an out of body experience.

Schnoebelen’s autobiography, Lucifer Dethroned, is a gripping and hideous account of his descent into the darkest, most frightening side of the occult, magick, astral travel and Satanism and his subsequent restoration through grace and the love of Jesus Christ. 

Bill  was a psychically-empowered Druidic high priest, high-order Mason, ordained spiritist minister and Satanist who frequently "went out of his body" for various reasons.  As he tells it, one night he was "yanked" out of his body and drawn up through the paths of the Tree of Life toward the zone of Binah or Saturn.  His strange journey took him to a vast, obsidian trapezoidal temple called the Cathedral of Pain situated in the midst of swirling stars. The inside walls were clear glass,
 
"...holding back a transparent green fluid.  Floating within the fluid...were hundreds of naked (horribly mutilated) human bodies.  They were all dead, most with expressions of exquisite terror etched in a rictus on their frozen faces."  Then a pillar of light struck an "obsidian throne," a sacrificial altar, and out of the light "appeared a huge being...robed in white.."  Mighty wings swept his shoulders.  One moment the winged being was an incredibly handsome man, the next a "bull" and the next a "woman."  Chanting began in Latin: "Ave Satanas, Rege Satanas (Hail Satan, Satan Rules)"  Then the terrifying being reached out his left hand "and placed it on my forehead....I felt a claw tear into my brow (and) insert itself into my brain like a white-hot poker.."  Then a voice spoke: "Now you are mine forever."    (p. 157-159) 

Schnoebelen was forced to return to the terrifying Cathedral of Pain a few more times before turning to Jesus Christ for salvation.  One night he finally got down on his knees and,

"...confessed to the Lord that I was indeed a sinner---perhaps the chiefest of sinners (but) I repented (Luke 15:5) and confessed that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead so that I might have eternal life (Romans 10: 9-10).  I asked Jesus to save me from my sins (Romans 10: 13), and to be the absolute Lord of my life (Romans 12: 1-2)"    Jesus Christ forgave me and set me "free from unbelievable darkness and evil..."   Jesus Christ liberated my spiritually oppressed soul."(p. 315)

Though the earth didn't move under his feet nor did heavenly choirs start to sing, Schnoebelen felt an extraordinary,

"...quiet kind of peace (come over him), a peace which even now wells up within me as I write these words years later!  It was a peace the like of which I had never experienced in over 30 years of living.  I had never known how empty I was until I was filled." (pp. 215-316)

After this, Schnoebelen sought a real bible-believing church where he could receive good, spiritually meaty theology and good teaching.  Today Schnoebelen is an internationally recognized speaker who has spoken on four continents and is the author of seven books.   He holds Masters Degrees in both Theology and Counseling and teaches on the Bible, deliverance, alternative religions and the occult.

Schnoebelen's message to all sinners, no matter how hard-boiled, no matter if caught up in Wicca, Satanism or any other form of New Age occult paganism sweeping over our nation and into the increasingly worldly church, is that the power of Jesus Christ is,

"more than sufficient!  His wisdom is perfect and consoling! His love will fill the emptiest heart! Jesus Christ is Lord!"  (p. 320)

Amen!

Nihilism: The West's Evil Religion of Idolatry, Lies, and Hate

The Christian religion is the religion of our country. From it are derived our prevalent notions of the character of God, the great moral governor of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions.” (William McGuffey, d. May 4, 1873, professor at the University of Virginia, president of Ohio University, and author of McGuffey’s Readers; earstohear.net)
 
 Andre Comte-Sponville, one of France's preeminent atheist philosophers agrees.  In his New York Times bestseller, "The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality," Sponville observes that even though Western and American civilization has become nonreligious it is nevertheless profoundly rooted in transcendent Biblical morality and traditions.   That overt and implied atheism has all but supplanted Biblical beliefs pleases yet simultaneously frightens Sponville as he clearly sees that if Western civilization entirely ceases to be Christian it will fall into something like a refined nihilism.  And if we believe that nothing remains,
 
"....we might as well throw in the towel at once.   We would have nothing left to oppose to either fanaticism from without or to nihilism from within---and, contrary to what many people seem to think, nihilism is the primary danger.  We would belong to a dead civilization, or at least a dying one....Wealth has never sufficed to make a civilization, poverty, even less so.  Civilizations require culture, imagination, enthusiasm and creativity, and none of these things come without courage, work and effort."    Without these necessities, "Good night...the Western world has decided to replace faith with somnolence." (pp. 28-29)
 

Sponville admits that in his younger years he had believed in the supernatural God of Revelation and been raised a Christian.  Up till around the age of eighteen his faith was powerful. But then he embraced evolutionary scientism and fell away, and this falling away said Sponville, was liberating because for the liberated autonomous 'self' whose life no longer has any ultimate meaning or purpose there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not live in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves.
 

But the lies, amoralism and perverse license, the nihilism Sponville rejoices in becomes an unbearable source of horror and dread when reproduced in millions of souls.  Sponville is right to fear the spread of nihilism, for when multiplied by millions it means there is no longer an ultimate, transcendent source of unchanging truth and moral law independent of sinful men, and as Sponville knows, therefore dreads, the lie is the father of violence:
 

"(The lie) is the word, act, sign of cunning or silence which makes use of wiles to deceive (all who seek) truth....the attitude of the liar, who full of subtlety, audacity and at times cruel cynicism, misleads his neighbor into the quick sands of falsity.  The use of the lie reveals the liar as a person of evil intentions.  He who tells lies as a way of getting ahead lacks a love of truth (he or she is) a self-centered dissimulator, cunningly manipulating his fellowmen for his own evil purposes."   (The Roots of Violence, Rev. Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., p.29)
 
 Nihilism is the satanically inverted philosophy of violence, lies and license of America’s president, his cabinet, and the amoral progressive ruling class of which they are members.  It is also the philosophy of the Marquis de Sade, Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx and the Sophist Callicles in Plato’s ‘Georgias’ who declares:
 

The fact is this: luxury and licentiousness and liberty, if they have the support of force, are virtue and happiness and the rest of these embellishments-—the unnatural covenants of mankind-—are all mere stuff and nonsense.” (Making Gay Okay, Reilly, pp. 31-32)
 

In other words, with a consensus of lies backed by force and the threat of violence, the Revelation of God, the Christian Church, virtue, true truth, marriage, gender, your children, your humanity, your wealth, your home, your business, and your Constitutional rights become whatever agents of violence and the mobs in back of them want them to be or not to be from one moment to the next.
 

What nihilism has already led to in England, said Nate Steuer of Jeremiah Cry Ministries, are buildings that once served as churches that are now museums, stores and even nightclubs, a strong belief in evolution and a strong homosexual-rights movement:
 

 "They don't want to hear the gospel. The gospel is pressed down,' and the homosexual-rights movement is so rooted in England that Christians are afraid to go 'into the streets and preach,' fearing what the LBGT community will do."  ("Fate of Christianity in UK not too far from U.S., warns evangelist," Chris Woodward, OneNewsNow.com, July 8, 2014)
 
Evolutionary scientism is a form of nihilism leading in practice to dehumanization, demoralization, reckless irresponsibility and genocide.   It is a sham science said G.K. Chesterton.  It is a license by which the stupidest,
 
 "...or wickedest action is supposed to become reasonable or respectable, not by having found a reason in scientific fact, but merely by having found any sort of excuse in scientific language."  The program and attitude of scientism is a "serpent....as slippery as an eel," a "demon...as elusive as an elf," an "evil and elusive creature."   (The Restitution of Man: C.S. Lewis and the Case against Scientism, Michael D. Aeschliman, p. 43) 
 

Evolutionary scientism has amply demonstrated itself as a virulently anti-human, catastrophically destructive, demonically murderous worldview. In just the first eighty-seven years of the twentieth century, violent spirits who love evil and devouring words and breathe out slaughter and death brutally exterminated between 100-170 million un-evolved 'subhuman' men, women, and children in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.
 

In the Soviet Union, the Triune God-and-human hating nihilist of violence, Vladimir Lenin, exulted that,
 

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

In other words, the 'death' of the God of Revelation allows unfettered violence against millions of people because they are no longer the immutable image-bearers of the Triune God but rather expendable products of evolution on a par with slime, weeds, slugs and rocks.  Empowered by evolutionary scientism, Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death. He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species." 
 

Fueled by hate, contempt and murderous rage it was Lenin who "decided who should disappear by virtue of having been condemned to the dustbin of history." From the moment Lenin made the "scientific" decision that the bourgeoisie represented a stage of humanity that evolution had surpassed, "its liquidation as a class and the liquidation of the individuals who actually or supposedly belonged to it could be justified." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)
 

In Nazi Germany evolutionary scientism resulted in gas chambers, ovens, and the liquidation of eleven million "useless eaters" and other undesirables.
 

Alain Brossat draws the following conclusions about the two regimes of nihilism, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and the ties that bind them:
 

"The 'liquidation' of the Muscovite executioners, a close relative of the 'treatment' carried out by Nazi assassins, is a linguistic microcosm of an irreparable mental and cultural catastrophe that was in full view on the Soviet Stage. The value of human life collapsed, and thinking in categories replaced ethical thought…In the discourse and practice of the Nazi exterminators, the animalization of Other…was closely linked to the ideology of race. It was conceived in the implacably hierarchical racial terms of "subhumans" and "supermen"…but in Moscow in 1937, what mattered…was the total animalization of the Other, so that a policy under which absolutely anything was possible could come into practice." (Black Book of Communism, p. 751)
 

As in England, evolutionary scientism has replaced the God of Revelation, thus with the animalization of Americans millions of unborn humans have already been aborted, growing numbers of unwanted adults euthanized and late-term unborn babies cruelly dismembered.  
 
 Writing in, "New York Abortion Bill Allows Shooting Babies Through the Heart With Poison to Kill Them" Steven Ertelt reports that New York is already the abortion/murder capital of the United States, with practically no oversight of the industry.   Throughout the second trimester, developing babies can be completely dismembered,
 

"... even when they can feel pain (by) pulling the baby out piece by piece until the mother’s uterus is empty. After the abortion, the abortionist must reassemble the child’s body to ensure nothing has been left inside the child’s mother." (LifeNews.com | 5/20/14 6:28 PM)
 

What nihilists now demand for late-term abortions that will be legalized in New York by the abortion-expanding Women’s Equality Act, is the murder of babies,
 

"... by sliding a needle filled with a chemical agent, such as digoxin, into the beating heart, before being delivered."
 

Then there is Wisconsin-based abortionist Dennis Christensen and his partner Bernard Smith who have performed 85,000 to 95,000 abortions in a 40 year period:
 

So I see it as a calling, I guess,” Christensen said. “But I’ve been called, I’ve served and now I’d like to call someone else.”  (Abortionist Who’s Killed 95,000 Babies in Abortions: “I See It as a Calling” Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com, 7/7/14)
 

Something "called him" to murder 95,000 babies, but it wasn't the Holy God of Revelation.
 

When for millions of nihilists the God of Revelation does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose with neither hope of an afterlife nor any accountability to their Maker for their actions here in this world, then men no longer have reason and purpose for being good, thus are free to be evil.  They are at liberty to invoke meaningless law and perverted justice to destroy freedom, dismember babies, and force disordered appetites upon men, women, and children.  They are free to accuse the good man of evil, to enslave other people and deprive them of life-sustaining electricity, gas, and water.  With this freedom they vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others and throw our borders open to floods of illegals, rapists, drug-lords, terrorists, pedophiles, murderers and other sinister individuals.
 
Nihilists can freely lie so as to "normalize" whatever wicked fantasies and schemes they desire, such as global warming/cooling/change, redistributive justice, common core, 'gay' equality and Decadence Festivals:   
 
 The Southern Decadence Festival is one of our nation’s most notorious celebrations of sodomy, public sex acts, prostitution, drunkenness, and worse, but is by no means the only such festival….decadence festivals are held over and across post-Christian America and Western Europe as well as in Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Thailand, Brazil, Belarus, Ireland, Japan, Scotland, China, S. Africa, India and Taipei.” (Sex slaves, sexual anarchy and decadence festivals: ominous signs of something really rotten,” L. Kimball, Renew America, Oct. 25, 2012)

A society of nihilists is a welcome mat to human predators of every stripe from drug lords, ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood to flesh-peddlers and the world's criminal elite: the occult Luciferian New World Order super-wealthy criminal consortium and their merciless leftwing and rightwing allies.   This cohort of sinister nihilists believe in nothing, know only hate, contempt, violence, greed and egotism and share a foundational hatred of the Tri-Personal God of Revelation, faithful Christians and Jews and  traditional Christian grounded Western and American civilization.
 

In the impeccably documented book, "Sinisterism: Secular Religion of the Lie," Bruce Walker describes the super-wealthy consortium and their like-minded allies as Sinisterists, making political labels like Far Right (Nazis/Fascists), liberals and Far Left (Progressives, Bolsheviks, Marxists, Communists) and even like-minded Radical Muslims the same thing.
 

What unite all Sinisterists are their hatreds:
 

"They hate Christians...Jews...America (and) Israel.  They hate truth.  They hate the very idea of truth.  They hate the idea of humans as unique and special in the universe.  They hate the idea of a great moral purpose unfolding in our lives.  Sinisterism is a bundle of connected hatreds.  For the sake of their hatreds, Sinisterists lust for power." (preface)
 

Because Sinisterists hate the idea of man as God's spiritual image-bearer they have 'killed' the Triune God and forced nihilistic Darwinism upon us because it reduces mankind to less than nothing.  They also invent words and sound-bite phrases such as heterosexist, homophobe, global change and nonexistent categories of mankind such as "racial species" and "emerging genders" that imprison thought.   Following are some other examples:
 

1. Multiculturalism: the stealthy destruction of America's traditional Christian based culture by insidious elevation of pagan and pantheist cultures and belief systems in the name of politically correct tolerance, pluralism and inclusion.
 

2.'Gay rights/'gay' marriage: rebellion against and negation of the two created sexes, procreation, and the idea of normal.
 

3. Political correctness, speech codes, sensitivity training, and hate crime laws:  psychic-cages for the minds of traditional-values Americans.
 

4. Perverse sex education: As was the case in the Soviet Union, its ultimate purpose is the subversion and perversion of our youth---the awakening of the Devil, as Karl Marx's comrade Bakunin admitted.
 

5. Critical theory: the mindless vomiting out of destructive criticism upon everything good, true, excellent, normal, and traditional.
 

6. Global change, Agenda 21, Green Movement, redistributive justice: the evisceration of our standard of living and individual liberties in order to 'save the planet' — in other words, penury, misery, death and slavery on behalf of Gaia.
 

7. Sustainability: Extreme population control calling for the annihilation of billions of people to achieve spiritual communism.
 

8. Religious pluralism: the erasure of faithful Judaism, Christian theism and America's founding Christian-based worldview by way of elevating Wicca, animism, Islam, New Age occult spirituality, Gnostic paganism, Buddhism,  shamanism, goddess worship, Luciferian Masonry and atheism in the name of politically correct tolerance and inclusion.
 

In order to destroy rational thinking, nihilists use words and phrases (i.e., change, "make love not war," "we are Trayvon" "evolution is an established fact of science") to create images rather than ideas and then concentrate on endless repetition of the same word-pictures,
 

"...to create a hypnotic effect to defend an otherwise hopeless case.  Sinisterists use the same words over and over again."   (p.12)
 

Nihilism’s black heart is the worship of lies, particularly the Big Lie of evolution.   'Elite' transnational Robert Muller, father of Common Core Curriculum and former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall all politically incorrect thinkers, especially anti-evolutionists:
 

"...all those who hold contrary beliefs" to politically correct thought favored for the "next  phase of evolution" will "disappear."  A hellish fate awaits all who resist political and spiritual globalization, "…those who criticize the UN are anti-evolutionary, blind, self-serving people.  Their souls will be parked in a special corral of the universe for having been retarding forces, true aberrations in the evolution and ascent of humanity."  (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 133)
 

With malice aforethought, sinister nihilists have dumbed-down Westerners and Americans by infiltrating our education institutions and even our seminaries with nihilist philosophies, propaganda and schemes such as evolutionary scientism, perverse sex education, so-called 'higher Biblical criticism,' critical theory, multiculturalism and revised history. 
 

As evolutionary scientism and the relativity of truth are fatal doctrines-- types of nihilism that deny objective truth and reality--- they result in the rapid disintegration of critical thinking, faith in God, respect and manners resulting in a twisted, inverted society dominated by moral imbeciles---narcissistic despots, thugs, human parasites and bizarre polymorphously perverse beings--- at every level of government and society who know how they feel and what they covet and are thus entitled to but can't think straight, can't spell, and don't know right from wrong.
 

It should be obvious by now, said Walker, that the relations of people in American and Western society are growing coarser,
 

".....more dishonest....shallower....lonelier...more desperate for the narcotics of power, applause and fear as we perceive ourselves moving closer to the status of gods and goddesses.  If we choose, as individuals, that idolatry, then we are doomed.  All the dystopian nightmares of Orwell, Bradbury, Huxley and others will become real all too soon....we will (either) surrender to thugs governing enslaved nations or embittered terrorists." (p. 252)
 

Our so-called “scientifically enlightened” age is an age of nihilism.  Ecstatic with the voluptuous delight of destruction which rolls humans into satanic depths, nihilists keep pushing society to the brink of social chaos and suicide:
 

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) 
 

Nihilism is lawlessness, idolatry, violence, perversion, fear, terrors of mind, and horrors of conscience and loss of true freedom since the despair of nihilism ends in man’s slavery to his dark side, death and damnation.
 

In his poem "The Second Coming," Yeats reveals the murderous delight of de Sade's, Nietzsche's, Marx's, and Callicles modern offspring:
 

"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are
Full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand."
 

If Western and American nihilists continue to set the God of Revelation aside in favor of "self" and what they really do know are lies and empty, shallow, meaningless evil, then a tyranny of evil will come upon us swiftly and terribly.  But there is another path before us: the way of repentance, truth, decency and God's Divine Truth.  His eternally unchanging Truth will set us free. We should choose the path of Truth and goodness:
 

"On that choice hangs the fate of humanity. People will either embrace goodness or deny that goodness can exist and commit moral suicide (and) worship The Lie."   (ibid, Walker, p. 252)
 

People who choose the way of true truth will find the goodness and Light of God.  As they follow the Way of Truth they will stumble sometimes, occasionally journey down blind alleys, and perhaps be on the wrong side of causes at times, but they,
 

"...will never lose hope or the help of other normal people and the Blessed Creator of the Universe." (ibid, p. 233)
 

The narrow way leads ever up toward truth, light, beauty, goodness, courage, hope, peace and eternal physical life in an unimaginably beautiful Paradise.   The other way is a broad highway spilling into a downward spiraling vortex marked by the despair of nihilism, the darkness of lies, the sulphuric stench of soul-destroying hate, and the horror of nothingness finally issuing into an eternity in outer darkness.

2 Tim. 3:5---Christless Christianity

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:5)

At the First Presbyterian Church of New York City on May 21, 1922, the liberal (evolutionary pantheist)  theologian Harry Emerson Fosdick  pleaded for tolerance of more liberal views of Christianity.  According to Fosdick, it is no longer necessary to believe in the sovereignty of the Triune God in history, the virgin birth, the inerrant Bible, or special creation and the Fall, hence Original Sin.  Accept evolutionary science, said Fosdick.  It can be received by the visible church without harm as can pluralism (all ways lead to 'heaven'). 

This message, with printing financed by New World Order globalist John D. Rockefeller, was sent out to 130,000 pastors and leaders. Its title was changed to “The New Knowledge and the Christian Faith.”

In response to Fosdick's plea for tolerance the Rev. Clarence Macartney of Arch Street Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania responded on July 13, 1922 with a sermon entitled “Shall Unbelief Win?”   In his summary of the points raised by Fosdick, Macartney said if they were valid then Christianity would be a Christianity of the opinions of men, and the principles and good purposes they favor leading to a Christianity without worship, a Christianity without God, and a Christianity without Jesus Christ.  Theological liberalism, said Macartney, is progressively transforming the church into a secular institution.  (“Shall Unbelief Win?” thisday.pcahistory.org )
 
Fifteen years before Fosdick's plea, Pope Pius X had issued a clear and compelling warning against liberal theology, or modernism, as he called it.  In the encyclical 'Pascendi Dominici Gregis'  the Pope uncompromisingly defined liberal theology and its most important doctrine evolution as heresy.
 
The Pope noted that  liberal "Christian" heretics  are claiming that Christ is in us (pantheist monism) and that through evolution an immanentist Christ-force progressed and/or "emanated from nature spontaneously and of itself."

Translated: only the natural dimension exists (monism) rather than the two interacting, interfacing dimensions, the natural and supernatural as the Bible affirms, thus logically, there is no living, personal Triune God, hence no Revealed Word, no Fall, no absolute Moral Law and no need of individual salvation.  Furthermore, since evolution implies continuous change and/or progress, "Christian" heretics also claim that transcendent immutable (unchanging) truths do not exist, therefore there is nothing immutable in the Bible, the Church and the two created sexes....or for that matter in Americas' Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and Rule of Law. All are subject to change, for in that  pantheist monism conceptually dissolves the living, transcendent Christ into nature, everything becomes imaginatively infused with impersonal divine spirit resulting in a divine spark, Force, God-energy, or Christ-consciousness within man. Thus claim heretics, Christian theism itself lives and evolves, and "must in fact be changed."

"Christian" change-agents further claim that all religions and belief systems are true (pluralism/ecumenism) because the  divine-force suffuses and energizes all things. By extension of this perverse reasoning, Gaia is alive, global change 'evolutionary science' is true, and pagan Gnosticism, Hermetic magic, Satanism, Wicca, Sharia, Luciferian Theosophy and Masonry are valid ways of reaching 'heaven.'  This satanically inverted reasoning is syncretism (moral relativism), the uniting of good and evil, truth and lie, the holy and the unholy. R.J. Rushdoony comments:

"Now syncretism is destructive of the human mind, of rationality...(A) man who wants to unite good and evil...has lost the capacity for clear thinking. His mind is darkened, clouded, fuzzed over, and incompetent....Man, by presuming to be god, has by that act destroyed the possibility of true thinking; from so radically false a premise, no valid conclusion can follow." ("Why Is Rick Warren Waffling?" Lee Duigon, Chalcedon)

Today many plausible sounding variants  of Liberal theology exist such as Teilhardism, Progressive Creationism, and Evolutionary Christianity and we must not be deceived by their persuasive use of ultimately meaningless God and Christ words.

"For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?" John 5:46-47
 
And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. ”  Luke 24:27

2 Tim. 3:5  concerns liberal theologians of our days. They profess a false Christianity, a scientifically enlightened, evolutionary religion that observes the outward form (God and Christ words, church buildings, sacraments, vestments, religious services, good works, etc.) of “godliness” (that is, “religion”), but reject its supernatural power, that is, the Triune God of Revelation, special creation, Original Sin, Jesus Christ God incarnate (John 1:1) , the resurrection, second coming, miracles, regeneration, judgment, heaven, and hell, thus because they do not believe Moses they cannot believe the words of our Lord Jesus Christ. Their desire is for the things of this world: lofty position, prestige, power, applause and trappings of scientific and religious professionalism because they are “lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God:"

"There is no one who claims that there is no God who is not infected by carnal desire or a lust for earthly power or the delightful madness of some showy spectacle.  They love such temporal things and seek their happiness in them.  They pursue the earthy objects of their desire wherever they lead and fear anyone who seems to have the power to take them away." (Augustine, On True Religion, 38, 69)

Evolutionary theologians fear faithful defenders of the Revealed Word, special creation, etc. and this is why they are at least as hostile if not more so toward faithful defenders than are their evolutionary atheist and occult pantheist counterparts (Luciferians, god-men, goddesses, shaman, Satanists, witches, necromancers, and astrologers).

Over and across the entire denominational spectrum, it is the faithful, the ones who stand unmoving against the heresy of theological liberalism and its primary doctrine evolution who are harshly criticized, laughed-at, and condemned by theological liberals for their so-called simplistic anti-evolution theology, narrow-mindedness, bigotry, stupidity, cultural isolationism, and anti-intellectualism which the scientifically enlightened call,

“....the rejection of science,” and then refer to this as “textbook evidence of an unyielding ignorance on the part of the religious.” (Total Capitulation: The Evangelical Surrender of Truth, Dr. Mohler, October 25, 2011)

2 Tim. 3:5 contains a warning urgently needed by wavering, yet still faithful, Bible-believing Christians because of the constant pressure brought to bear against them that if surrendered to will lead them into compromise with evolutionary liberals. Many have already accepted the evolutionary system of “ages geology,” and this is tragic and dangerous. Rather than compromising with evolutionary naturalists and pantheist liberals, as many Christians today are inclined to do, Paul warns: “From such turn away!”

Rise of the Global Church of Lucifer

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

Since the Renaissance, powerfully influential, satanically overshadowed occult secret societies existing at the highest levels of the Christian Church, government and society have been both the intelligentsia and the real powers behind what has been variously called the Progressive Underground, the Anti-Establishment, the sixties Sexual Liberation movement and the Anti-Tradition Counter Culture.  The aim of the societies is twofold:  first, the total destruction of the Old Order based on faithful Christianity with emphasis on the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, Original Sin, Jesus Christ God Incarnate, immutable truth, moral absolutes and all tradition arising therefrom, and second, the ushering in of an occult New Age--- a socialistic kingdom of “God” (pantheist New World Order) here on earth.   (The Occult Underground: The Dawn of the New Age" and "The Occult Establishment," James Webb)

Today occult societies at the highest levels of global power and influence operate through a vast organizational network--a global occult pantheist New Age Movement (Age of Aquarius) linked to over 10,000 organizations here in America alone. 

The New Age movement received its start in 1875 with the founding of the Theosophical Society by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.  In his book, “Earth’s Earliest Ages” (1876), the English theologian G.H. Pember writes that Blavatsky was chosen by the Brotherhood (fallen angels) to carry out a mission.  They initiated and instructed her for seven years and then dismissed her to the outer world.  As instructed, she traveled to America and organized the Theosophical Society in New York with two specific stated goals.   First: the formation of the nucleus of a Universal Brotherhood.   Second: the destruction of the Revealed Word of God by way of a transformation to unity-with-the-world-system process.  This devilish process would be carried out by “spiritually illumined” change-agent theologians and priests (2 John 1:7) who would transform it completely:

"The coming struggle will emerge within the churches themselves; it will be precipitated by the enlightened elements...the fight will then spread to thinking men and women everywhere who — in a protesting revolt — have denied orthodox churchianity and theology." (Spirit Master Djwhal Khul speaking through Alice Bailey, Externalization of the Hierarchy, pp. 453-454)

Bailey explains that specially selected theologians and priests will be overshadowed and then possessed by Masters in a process of initiation:

 ". . . prepared disciples and highly evolved men and women, will be found who will be doing the work along the lines intended, one who will be occupying places of prominence which will make them available for the reaching of the many...First 'An impression upon the physical brain of the man or women, of thoughts, plans for work, ideals . . . which emanating from the Avatar [Hindu: An incarnation of a deity in physical form] will yet be unrecognized by him (This is a very important aspect of overshadowing) . . . . This is literally a form of higher telepathy . . . . Second. The overshadowing of the chela (Hindu for disciple) during his work (such as lecturing, writing, or teaching) and his illumination for service. He will be conscious of this . . . and will seek more and more to be available for use, rendering himself up in utter selflessness to the inspiration of His Lord. Third. The conscious co-operation of the chela is necessitated in the third method of overshadowing. In this case, he will… surrender himself and step out of his physical body, handing it over for the use of the Great Lord or one of His Masters . . . he renders up his body, and stands aside for a specific length of time." (Scientific Analysis of the Writings of Alice A. Bailey and their Applications,” Robert Herrmann Ph.D., pp. 756-757)

In other words, 'chosen' disciples will at first come under the influence of demons, then become infested, then severely infested, and for some, completely possessed.

Eighteen years after Blavatsky died in London in 1891, the Brotherhood selected Alice Bailey (1880-1949) for further instruction.   Beginning in the year 1919 she began receiving “messages” from “Tibetan Master” Djwhal Khul. As stated by Bailey, the preparatory period began with Blavatsky and lasted from 1875 to 1890.   The intermediate teachings were received and recorded by Bailey from 1919 to 1949.  According to Khul, other teachings would emerge on a continuous basis after 1975 and be given on a world wide scale to selected individuals.

Among core teachings common to occult New Age are adulation of Lucifer (the seething power and/or angel of evolution), biological and spiritual evolution, reincarnation, karma, pantheism,  man is god, and the earthly kingdom of “God” together with the concept of the Masters and other such synonyms: Masters of Wisdom, the Unknown Chiefs, the Secret Chiefs, Brothers, Council of Nine, the Ancient Ennead of Egypt, and Space Brothers.   In her various books Bailey lists other members of the Hierarchy of Masters: Master Jupiter, Master Koot Humi, Master Rakoczi, Master Serapis, Master P., Master Hilarion (the Master of science), and Master Jesus.

Variations of these concepts and teachings are also common to Christian Science, Mormonism, Spiritism, Baha’i, Unitarian Universalism, Scientology, Eastern Religions, the Emergent Church, the New Apostolic Reformation and Masonry (Illuminism), the successor of the Mysteries:

"Illuminism---the Luciferian religion---teaches that man can become God, that he can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself (and) once you have evolved into a god, you can make up your own rules (and) morality." (“New World Order,” William T. Still, p. 27)

"Spiritual evolution is a common belief within Fabian socialism, the Emergent Church, the communitarian church growth movement, and the New Age movement. It will play a major role in bringing many of the world’s religions together as one." (Man as God: What Much of Evangelicalism  and the World's Religions have in Common, Brannon Howse, worldview weekend, July 29, 2013)

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is one of the fastest growing movements within Protestantism today.  It emerged from the Pentecostal and Charismatic movement and teaches that certain individuals have become new spiritual beings, super apostles:

 "This NAR teaching is consistent with the New Age Movement or cosmic humanism, declaring that man needs to tap into his “Christ consciousness.” Cosmic humanism, (also known as the New Age Movement or pagan spirituality) is a major foundation of the NAR." (ibid, Howse)

In his penetrating analysis of the New Apostolic Reformation, Fr. Seraphim Rose notes that the spiritist manifestations (i.e., impartation, holy laughter, drunk in the spirit, roaring, barking, hissing, slain in the spirit) experienced in NAR churches are found in the occult New Age movement. The spirit that invaded the Charismatic movement during the 'Toronto Blessing' is not the Holy Spirit, said Rose, but the kundalini spirit (serpent power), the same unholy spirit that ancient Egyptians, Hindus, yoga practitioners, and New Agers are familiar with.

One way that serpent power is imparted is by laying on of hands, or Shakti-pat. The demon-possessed Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajineesh was called the "divine drunkard" by his disciples, and according to Tal Brook, author of "Riders of the Cosmic Circuit," by his millions of worshippers in India, America, and Europe and throughout the world. Rajineesh encouraged his devotees to come and drink from him, meaning, receive his touch:

"His spiritual 'wine' was often passed on with a single touch to the head (Shakti-pat), at which his followers would collapse in ecstatic laughter. Another famous guru, Swami Muktananda, would hold meetings at which thousands of his followers from around the world came to receive his touch. They experienced uncontrollable laughing, roaring, barking, hissing, crying, shaking, as well as falling unconscious." (Rose, p. 217)

According to veteran researcher Brooks Alexander, Lucifer's initiates and disciples have successfully assimilated occult Eastern teachings and techniques into our church and our culture. With remarkable speed and ease, Eastern and occult ideas and spiritist techniques for contacting spirits such as trance music, brain-altering drugs, meditation and yoga are being propagated to undiscerning Westerners and Americans, within and without the church, on a mass scale:

"...they are filtered through the pervasive secularism of our culture. In this way they are demystified without changing their essential content. The basic components of an Eastern/occult world view are recast in forms of expression that are naturalistic, scientific, and humanistic...Occult philosophy is being secularized and psychologized with increasing refinement....Their underlying themes run through contemporary science, economics, politics, art, psychology, and religion." (The Coming Darkness, p. 55)

NAR's Super Apostles (2 Cor. 11:13) channel this unholy ‘spirit’ who they claim is the Spirit of ‘God.’   They claim that ‘God’ has given them the authority to build a kingdom of “God” on earth---a unified and/or pluralistic Global Church:

They believe they are restored apostles called and ordained by God to be the government for the emerging “New Order” church.  In order to maintain this governance they stress strict obedience and submission to them in all matters.  They claim to hear directly from God, and many claim that Jesus visits them in person…these so-called restored apostles believe they are called to lay the foundation and government for the new (earthly) Kingdom (one world church).  Their goal is complete and utter control of the church and subjugation of its current governance to them….This is a highly organized group with a global agenda (it is) well thought out, well strategized, and will be implemented with military precision.  The grid is in place---our future is planned.” (A Strong Delusion---the New Apostolic Reformation, thereformedtraveler.com)

Rick Joyner, one of the most visible and popular change-agent leaders in the NAR claims that faithful Christians who resist the “change” to “unity” or "oneness" process are under demonic influence.  In a further demonstration of his satanically twisted and inverted  reasoning processes Joyner said,

Some pastors and leaders who continue to resist this tide of unity will be removed from their place.  Some will become so hardened they will become opposers and resist God to the end.”  (Religious Trojan Horse, Brannon Howse, p. 146)

Joyner calls for a Great Christian Civil War to drive out authentic Christians (John 15:19) because they are too “rigid in doctrinal emphasis.” (ibid, p. 147)

Church growth guru and NAR leader C. Peter Wagner agrees.  Wagner, yet another “enlightened element,” claims that NAR is “changing the shape of Protestant Christianity around the world” and he and his fellow ‘over-shadowed’ travelers expect opposition from Bible-believing Christians:

We are well into the early adoption phase of the New Apostolic Reformation, when we can expect fairly strong objections from traditionalists who are threatened by change.” (ibid, p. 144)

Strange Fire

An ancient Chaldean occult doctrine, evolutionary transformism (change process) is the strange fire produced by the Brotherhood in fascinated minds within and without the Christian Church.  In the impeccably researched “Scientific Analysis of the Writings of Alice A. Bailey and their Applications,”  Robert A. Herrmann, Ph.D. has traced the evolutionary science so very prevalent today together with the concept of the Masters back to 1750 and the Spanish-French occultist, Martine’s de Pasqually (1715?-1779).  The term Secret Chiefs however, was introduced by Baron Hund (1772-1776) for his Strikt Observanz Masonic System (Luciferian religion). 

Herrmann writes that the idea that man is god is grounded in evolutionary change process,

“….where an individual spiritually evolves into higher and more meaningful forms until one actually becomes totally a spirit being on various evolutionary levels.  Further, Pasqually apparently introduced the human biological concept prior to Darwin’s expanding it to other biological entities.”  (ibid, Herrmann)

 According to the brilliant Russian philosopher, theologian, and visionary, Vladimir Soloviev (1850-1900) it will be by way of an evolutionary “change” process (initiation) that the chosen one will be transformed into the Antichrist. 

Soloviev foresaw the stunning events we are witnessing today:  the wholesale rejection of the God of Revelation and the fall of the Christian Church into idolatry, apostasy and paganism influenced and directed by a demonic outpouring effecting a transformation of consciousness issuing into a unified religion of Lucifer and the appearance of the Antichrist.

 In the "A Short Tale of the Antichrist"  Soloviev writes that prior to his transformation, the proud super-man is outwardly just, but within full of pride.  He is morally reprehensible:

".... He believes in God but loves nobody but himself. His relationship with Christ was quickly defined as one of superiority (for he will never) bow before Him like the most stupid of Christians (nor) mutter senselessly....'Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me'....'I, the bright genius, the superman! No, never!" (The Wrath of God: The Days of Antichrist, Livio Fanzaga, pp. 39-40)

As the super-mans' change-process and/or initiation (spiritual fall) progresses, instead of the former cold rational respect for Jesus Christ:

"...there was born and grew in his heart, first, a kind of terror, and then a burning, choking and corroding envy and furious breath-taking hatred." Devoured with envy of Jesus Christ he cries out "He rotted in the tomb, rotted like the lowest..." (ibid, pp. 40-41)

This is the moment the Evil One has been waiting for.  He openly approaches the proud super-man and possesses him:

"He saw those piercing eyes and heard...a strange voice, toneless...stifled, and yet clear, metallic and absolutely soulless as though coming from a phonograph." Satan pours out his spirit, saying, "I ask nothing of you, and I will help you for your own sake...Receive my spirit...it gives birth to you in power. At these words...the superman's lips opened of themselves, two piercing eyes came quite close to his face, and he felt a sharp, frozen stream enter into him and fill his whole being. And at the same time he was conscious of a wonderful strength, energy, lightness and rapture." (p. 43)

 The Christian Church: Undergoing an Evolutionary Change Process

 New Age leader David Spangler identifies evolution as the power of the angel Lucifer, thus when Djwhal Khul revealed that the fallen angel calling itself Master Jesus is assuming control of the Christian Church, he inadvertently affirmed Spangler's claim.  In other words, a fallen angel is the spirit of the evolutionary “change” into  apostasy process that allows Master Jesus to take control of the Christian Church, and this is why Djwhal Khul, speaking through Bailey, spoke of the day when,

 "Christianity will be in a state of chaotic division and upheavals. When this takes place . . ., the Master Jesus will take certain initial steps towards reassuming control of His Church… "(ibid, Herrmann, p. 573).

 Khul appears to be describing our age, an age marked by confusion, collapsing foundations and a Christian Church fractured, divided against itself and increasingly in defiance of the Holy Trinity.   The Christian Church is undergoing a deepening, spreading change process issuing into nihilistic moral relativism, accommodation to the world system, heresy, and open apostasy.  This 'change' into apostasy process is backed by a vast and growing global elite network espousing syncretic neo-Gnostic interfaith/inter-spirituality and kingdom of “God” on earth conceptions.  (1 Tim. 4:1) 

 The Global Occult Elite

 The global ‘elite’ community consists of theologians, prime ministers, secretaries of treasury, secretaries of state, philanthropists and global business leaders whose NWO vision calls for the convergence, on a global basis, of religion, multinational corporations, foundations and the political and sociological instruments that would form a one-world government designed to bring about a New World Order. ("Hope of the Wicked: the Master Plan to Rule the World," Ted Flynn)

 In the painstakingly researched "False Dawn: the United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion" Lee Penn calls our attention to the United Religions Initiative. The URI is to a significant extent animated by Luciferian-spirituality, thus is the leading edge of the rising global religion of Lucifer.  Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to New Age theology which is a syncretistic stew of Liberal (evolutionary pantheist) Christianity, Luciferian Theosophy and Masonry, Spiritism, the Ancient Mysteries, Eastern Mysticism, Gnostic paganism, Wicca, Goddess worship, and adulation of Lucifer.

The URI has attracted a disparate group of activists and powerful supporters. For example, the Dalai Lama, progressive churchmen from the People's Republic of China, pro-gay Episcopalians, radical Muslims, feminist witches, rich capitalist foundations, the Club of Rome, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding and Lucis Trust, formerly called Lucifer Publishing. Prominent supporters of the URI and globalism include occultist Robert Muller (former UN assistant secretary general and father of Common Core Curriculum), Neale Donald Walsh, George Soros, Mikhail Gorbachev, Maurice Strong, Ted Turner, and Barbara Marx Hubbard. (pp.5,7, 23-26)

New Age spirituality relies heavily on the revelations of the Brotherhood of Masters channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Penn notes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes: worship of Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom; man as god; death is not real; extreme population control including abortion, eugenics and euthanasia; hatred of faithful Christians and Jews; Luciferian initiation of all who enter the New Age; and forecasting a pending 'selection' of mankind in which initiates enter the New Age and reactionaries face extinction:

"For the New Age Apostles of "progressive" Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution." (ibid, p. 7)

When a critical mass of humanity have succumbed to satanic subjection, infestation and possession, the New Age will commence when the Brotherhood of Masters bring to an end,

 “…the long silence which has persisted since Atlantean days," and "renew an ancient sharing of secrets." Thus "in the immediate future....Masters will walk openly among men...openly guiding and directing the affairs of humanity." (Djwhal Khul speaking through Alice Bailey, False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 262)

While denying Jesus Christ God incarnate, the Creator Who spoke all things into existence ex nihilo and made man in His spiritual image, thus the true and only source of Light and life, the Brotherhood of Masters are succeeding with the methods of false light among the many travelers of the broad way toward the building of Lucifer's kingdom of “God” here on earth…a unified Global Church of the One God: Lucifer ( http://one-faith-of-god.org/about.asp )

Deliver Us, O Lord, from Evil, Violent Men

In "Heather has Two Textbooks,"  Malcolm A. Kline writes that while today's parents of public school children may feel besieged by alternative lifestyles, one public school teacher doesn’t think the literature available to them is diverse enough:
 
“It takes a lot of work to find books that include same-gender parents, step-parents, foster or adoptive children, or other nontraditional families as background in an adventure tale, a friendship parable, or a holiday romp; nontraditional families are either the topic of the story or, more likely, not included at all,” Willow McCormick writes in the summer issue of Rethinking Schools magazine. “When two-parent, heterosexual families are presented as the norm in story after story, near [year] in and year out, an insidious message is conveyed: Families that don’t conform to this structure are not normal.”  (academia.org, July 4, 2014)
 
The lie is the father of violence

"(The lie) is the word, act, sign of cunning or silence which makes use of wiles to deceive (all who seek) truth....the attitude of the liar, who full of subtlety, audacity and at times cruel cynicism, misleads his neighbor into the quick sands of falsity.  The use of the lie reveals the liar as a person of evil intentions.  He who tells lies as a way of getting ahead lacks a love of truth (he or she is) a self-centered dissimulator, cunningly manipulating his fellowmen for his own evil purposes."   (The Roots of Violence, Rev. Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., p.29)

According to the teacher, the two-parent, one male, one female marriage is insidious.  Pushing aside her sophistry pretending to be rational discourse is the audacious self-righteous hypocrisy of the sovereign 'god-man,'  a self-centered dissimulator who implies the evil concept that man has no immutable nature since he is not created but rather the product of evolution, hence always and ever “becoming.” Thus pointing out to people of evil intentions that there has never been such a thing as sodomitic marriage in history is superfluous since man’s nature is fluid because the nihilistic ‘god’ Evolution rolls on and on, changing the Bible, demolishing truth, purpose, meaning, norms, moral law, one man one woman marriage, national boundaries, Constitutional rights, gender, and all else.
 
This is the satanically inverted philosophy of violence and nihilism of America’s president, his cabinet and the amoral progressive ruling class of which they are members.  It is also the philosophy of the Marquis de Sade, Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx and the Sophist Callicles in Plato’s ‘Georgias’ who declares:
 
The fact is this: luxury and licentiousness and liberty, if they have the support of force, are virtue and happiness and the rest of these embellishments-—the unnatural covenants of mankind-—are all mere stuff and nonsense.” (Making Gay Okay, Reilly, pp. 31-32)
 
In other words, with a consensus of lies backed by the threat of violence, the Bible,  the Christian Church, virtue, truth, marriage, gender, private property, your children, your humanity, and the Constitution become whatever God-hating agents of violence and the mobs in back of them want them to be from moment to moment.

What this has led to in England, said Nate Steuer of JeremiahCry Ministries, are buildings that once served as churches that are now museums, stores and even nightclubs, a strong belief in evolution and a strong homosexual-rights movement:

 "They don't want to hear the gospel. The gospel is pressed down," said Steuer, and the homosexual-rights movement is so rooted in England that Christians are afraid to go "into the streets and preach," fearing what the LBGT community will do."  ("Fate of Christianity in UK not too far from U.S., warns evangelist," Chris Woodward, OneNewsNow.com, July 8, 2014) 

The Dark 'god' Evolution

"Rescue me, Lord, from evildoers; protect me from the violent, who devise evil plans in their hearts and stir up war every day.They make their tongues as sharp as a serpent’s; the poison of vipers is on their lips. Keep me safe, Lord, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from the violent, who devise ways to trip my feet. The arrogant have hidden a snare for me; they have spread out the cords of their net and have set traps for me along my path."  Psalm 140

Evolutionary scientism has amply demonstrated itself as a virulently anti-human, pathologically destructive, demonically murderous worldview. Marching under its banner, in just the first eighty-seven years of the twentieth century, violent spirits who love evil and devouring words and breathe out slaughter and death brutally exterminated between 100-170 million un-evolved 'subhuman' men, women, and children in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.

In the Soviet Union, the Triune God-and-human hating man of violence, Vladimir Lenin, exulted that,

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

In other words, with the 'death' of the Triune God uninhibited violence against millions of people is allowable because they are no longer the image-bearers of the Triune God but rather products of evolution on a par with slime, weeds, slugs and rocks.  Wearing the evolutionary "ring of power" Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death. He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species."

Fueled by hate, contempt and murderous rage it was Lenin who "decided who should disappear by virtue of having been condemned to the dustbin of history." From the moment Lenin made the "scientific" decision that the bourgeoisie represented a stage of humanity that the 'god' evolution had surpassed, "its liquidation as a class and the liquidation of the individuals who actually or supposedly belonged to it could be justified." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)

In Nazi Germany evolution resulted in gas chambers, ovens, and the liquidation of eleven million "useless eaters" and other undesirables.

Alain Brossat draws the following conclusions about the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and the ties that bind them:

"The 'liquidation' of the Muscovite executioners, a close relative of the 'treatment' carried out by Nazi assassins, is a linguistic microcosm of an irreparable mental and cultural catastrophe that was in full view on the Soviet Stage. The value of human life collapsed, and thinking in categories replaced ethical thought…In the discourse and practice of the Nazi exterminators, the animalization of Other…was closely linked to the ideology of race. It was conceived in the implacably hierarchical racial terms of "subhumans" and "supermen"…but in Moscow in 1937, what mattered…was the total animalization of the Other, so that a policy under which absolutely anything was possible could come into practice." (Black Book of Communism, p. 751)

With the total animalization of 'other' here in America millions of unborn humans have been aborted and late-term unborn babies brutally dismembered.  Writing in, "New York Abortion Bill Allows Shooting Babies Through the Heart With Poison to Kill Them"  Steven Ertelt reports that New York is already the abortion/murder capital of the United States, with practically no oversight of the industry.   Throughout the second trimester, developing babies can be completely dismembered,

"... even when they can feel pain (by) pulling the baby out piece by piece until the mother’s uterus is empty. After the abortion, the abortionist must reassemble the child’s body to ensure nothing has been left inside the child’s mother." (LifeNews.com | 5/20/14 6:28 PM)

What is being demanded now for late-term abortions and will be legalized in New York by the abortion-expanding Women’s Equality Act,  is the death of babies,

"... by sliding a needle filled with a chemical agent, such as digoxin, into the beating heart, before being delivered."

Then there is Wisconsin-based abortionist Dennis Christensen and his partner Bernard Smith who have performed 85,000 to 95,000 abortions in a 40 year period:

So I see it as a calling, I guess,” Christensen said. “But I’ve been called, I’ve served and now I’d like to call someone else.”  (Abortionist Who’s Killed 95,000 Babies in Abortions: “I See It as a Calling”  Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com, 7/7/14)

Something "called him" to murder 95,000 babies, but it wasn't the Triune God.

 Deicide

After two mystical encounters with the evil spirit Zarathustra, the dark prophet Nietzsche announced the "death of the Christian God." Dubbing himself the Antichrist, Nietzsche proclaimed:

"The greatest recent event – that 'God is dead,' that the belief in the Christian God has ceased to be believable – is even now beginning to cast its first shadows over Europe; however, few really understood " what has really happened here, "and what must collapse now that this belief has been undermined – all that was built upon it, leaned on it, grew into it; for example, our whole European morality." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 433)

Men have murdered the Triune God and usurped His throne, thus today we are living in the days of  de Sades, Nietzsches, Marx's and Callicles 'god-men' of violence who, ecstatic with the voluptuous delight of destruction which rolls humans into satanic depths keep pushing society to the brink of social chaos and suicide:

“When two-parent, heterosexual families are presented as the norm in story after story, near [year] in and year out, an insidious message is conveyed: Families that don’t conform to this structure are not normal.”  

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) 

In his poem "The Second Coming," Yeats reveals the murderous delight of de Sade's, Nietzsche's, Marx's, and Callicles modern offspring:

"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned

The best lack all conviction, while the worst are

Full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;

Surely the Second Coming is at hand."

The Wrath of God

According to John MacArthur, things are falling apart because God has abandoned our society on a wide scale.   The moral chaos and confusion we experience in our nation happens because God has removed His restraining grace on a wide scale and given sinners over to their own choices and the consequences of those choices. No Scripture more directly confronts this abandonment and its consequences than Romans 1 does. Here is the most graphic and the most comprehensive discussion of what it means to be abandoned by God. God’s wrath is already at work in our culture. We’re not waiting for it, we are currently experiencing it.

The first indication in a society of the wrath of abandonment is sexual immorality (vs. 24). When a society becomes pornographic, this wrath is in effect. When men and women are abandoned by God, lusts dominate their hearts, leading to impurity, and the bodies follow in most dishonorable ways.

Step two is in verse 26. “For this reason God gave them over…here’s the second step…to degrading passions.” Now degradation enters the picture.  The degrading passions can be defined as gross affections, vile desires, perversion, or even inversion.  Plain and simple, lesbianism, homosexuality.  When a society exalts homosexuality, lesbianism and sodomy, it is sinking deeper.

Verse 27 adds, “In the same way, also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another…men with men, committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error."  What is the due penalty of their error? That they receive venereal disease, AIDS. That’s going to escalate, too, in this wrath of abandonment.

The third step is in verse 28. “Just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer…" God gave them over to a depraved mind.”  What is a depraved mind? The word literally means tested and found useless, disqualified for its intended purpose, a non-functioning mind. Reasoning is so corrupted that it is crippled. The intellectual faculty can no longer function because the conscience is depraved. The moral law of God written in the heart has been literally stomped and replaced with cultural immorality.  And so, says verse 28, they do the things which are not proper, not moral. So immorality goes in every direction and now they can’t find their way back because the mind is so corrupt. People don’t think right. People’s brains don’t follow the paths that they should. They advocate all the wretched things and depreciate all the virtuous things. And what flows out of this pornographic, homosexual, depraved culture? All evil…verse 29, “All unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice, gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful inventors of evil.” They even come up with new forms of evil.

The wrath of God is already operating in our culture:

".....God has abandoned our society because our society has first abandoned God. There is no surer and no sadder evidence of a corrupted, wicked abandoned society than when that society will not tolerate anger against sin. Our society won’t tolerate anger against sin. Our society feeds on sin and wants no one to deny it its iniquities. And so, here we are under the wrath of God’s abandonment. It isn’t like it once was. Restraining grace has been pulled back and this society gets more immoral, more homosexual and more depraved every day. And why?  The major reason is summed up in one statement. “We suppress the truth.”  (When God Abandons a Nation: Romans 1:18-32, John MacArthur, Grace to You, August 20, 2006)

The Unforgivable Blasphemy: the Pharisees & Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor as Exemplars

He that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness.”  Mark 3:29

The doctrine of the Holy Trinity defines the One God in three Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit—the one true, personal God of creation ex nilo. The second Person, Jesus Christ the Son, perfectly fulfills the Law and Prophets from the pre-flood world to our own and is God incarnate (John 1:1), the Truth, the Way and the Life, for life is only of the living Triune God and no other.

The Holy Spirit is associated with the Triune God’s divine actions, such as creation, judgment, miracles, prophecy, cleansing, sanctioning, and justifying: Matthew 16:17, Mark 12:36, Luke 1:67, John 16:13, John 14:26, 1 Tim. 4:1,  Romans 8:9-11. (The Holy Spirit and the Trinity, tektonics.org)
 
Before proceeding, we must clearly understand what the unforgivable blasphemy is not.
To begin, Scripture reveals that the Triune God knows your spirit (mind, will, conscience) better than anyone, including yourself:

God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us.” (Acts 15:8; also 1 Chronicles 29:17; Jeremiah 11:20; John 2: 24-25; Psalms 44:21, 139:1-2)
 
This means for example, that if at one time you were of a mind with C.S. Lewis, who felt great anger against the Holy Spirit after the death of his wife and accused Him of causing him to suffer, leading Lewis to turn away from Him for a time, Jesus’s Blood nevertheless atones for Lewis as for you because God Who knows your spirit knows you really love Him and that you didn’t mean it. (Acts 13:39).

Respected Christian theologian Dr. F.F. Bruce elaborates,

“…Speaking against the Son of man might be due to a failure to recognize Him for what He is. So Paul recalls how in his pre-Christian days he thought it his duty to oppose the name of Jesus of Nazareth. But if, having seen the light on the Damascus road, he had deliberately closed his eyes to it and kicked out against the goad which was directing him into the true path, that would have been the sin against the Holy Spirit.....The Holy Spirit persuades and enables men to accept Christ and enjoy the saving benefits of the gospel (John 16:8; 1 Cor. 2:14; Acts 7:51), but if anyone refuses to submit to the Spirit’s gracious constraint, preferring to call good evil and evil good, how can the gospel avail for him? The deliberate refusal of the grace of God is the one sin which by its very nature is irremediable.” (F.F. Bruce, Answers to Questions, 1973, pp. 46-47; christiananswers.net)

For all who humbly confess with their mouth,

“....Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” (Romans 10:9-10)

Now to the unforgivable blasphemy:

Anyone who rejects the Holy Spirit’s convicting influence and does not repent will not be forgiven, ‘neither in this world, neither in the world to come. Matthew 12:32” (Ray Comfort, “The Unpardonable Sin,” The Evidence Bible, 2001, ibid)

 “And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” (Matthew 12:31-34)

Jesus thus regards blasphemy against the Holy Spirit as permanently rejecting His identity (Matthew 12:18) as attested by the Spirit's works (12:28). (Craig S. Keener, The IVP Bible Background Commentary, New Testament, 1993, p. 80)

By “blaspheming” the Holy Spirit, Jesus refers to all who deny the divine authority and activity of the Holy Spirit by which they reject His identity. This also applies to those who refuse the prodding of the Holy Spirit to believe the Gospel and repent of their sin:

"For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins." (Hebrews 10:29). 

The sin of the Pharisees (Mark 3:30) was clearly against the Holy Spirit.  Long had they watched and listened to the Jesus Christ. They observed him doing undeniable and powerful miracles that were clear evidence of power supplied by God to raise people from the dead and release others from obvious suffering and demonic infestation and possession.

However, the Pharisees had so firmly set their hearts against accepting Jesus as the Messiah that they rejected the obvious truth before them and perversely twisted it in their publicly stated attribution of the power supplied by God to the most ultimately evil being in the universe. In other words, they called the Holy Spirit of God the unclean spirit of Satan and in effect,  charged Jesus Christ of being a sorcerer in league with Satan.

As Augustine said, "quoddam dictum, quaedam blasphemia," meaning their blasphemy consisted, not of words spoken rashly or ignorantly, but of murderous words spoken maliciously in order to destroy Christ.

Dr. Henry Morris clarifies the true nature of the Pharisees’ sin:

The unforgivable sin of speaking against the Holy Spirit has been interpreted in various ways, but the true meaning cannot contradict other Scripture. It is unequivocally clear that the one unforgivable sin is permanently rejecting Christ (John 3:18; 3:36). Thus, speaking against the Holy Spirit is equivalent to rejecting Christ with such finality that no future repentance is possible. ‘My spirit shall not always strive with man,’ God said long ago. Genesis 6:3."

"…In the context of this particular passage (Matthew 12: 22-32), Jesus had performed a great miracle of creation, involving both healing and casting out a demon, but the Pharisees rejected this clear witness of the Holy Spirit. Instead they attributed His powers to Satan, thus demonstrating an attitude permanently resistant to the Spirit, and to the deity and saving Gospel of Christ.” (Henry M. Morris, The Defender’s Study Bible, 1995)

While envious men might cruelly slander and destroy the spiritual virtues of a servant of Christ and be very near the unpardonable sin, it is not the man that makes the difference but the source of the blasphemy.  If the source is ignorance, misconception, or ill-informed prejudice, then blasphemy is equally pardonable with other sins.  But if the source be malice rooted in envy and hatred of the good and true, then the sin is not against the servant of Christ but against the Holy Spirit who inspires him. 

 Using the Pharisees as an example, Jesus Christ speaks of a spirit (mind, will, conscience) so proud, rebellious, depraved and unrepentant that it refuses to listen to anything the Holy Spirit tells it.  Instead, it chooses to remain forever in unbelief and is even capable of accusing the Son of having Satan in Himself. Such a spirit is guilty of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit:
 
But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed” (Romans 2:5).
 
Hebrews 6:4-6 exemplifies the blasphemy of conceptual murderers of the Holy Triune God beginning with Nimrod and much later Karl Marx, the father of the devilish Communist Manifesto together with intellectually arrogant apostatizing priests:

"Having ceased to be a minister of Christ, he who is represented by this star becomes the minister of the devil; and lets loose the powers of hell against the churches of Christ."  (Concise Commentary, Matthew Henry)

It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.”  (Hebrews 6:4)
 
In his youth Karl Marx professed to be a Christian.  In his work, “The Union of the Faithful with Christ,” we read,

Through love of Christ we turn our hearts at the same time toward our brethren who are inwardly bound to us and for whom He gave Himself in sacrifice.”  (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 11)
 
In his thesis, “Considerations of a Young Man on Choosing His Career,” Marx writes that Christianity teaches that Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself for all men and He is the Ideal toward which all men strive:
 
“…and who shall dare contradict such claims?  If we have chosen the position in which we can accomplish the most for Him, then we can never be crushed by burdens, because they are only sacrifices made for the sake of all.”  (ibid, p. 11)
 
Marx began life as a self-professed Christian but shortly after receiving his graduation certificate he rejected the leading of the Holy Spirit, thus a new, darkly frightening Marx began to emerge.
 
In his poem, “Invocation of One in Despair, ” he declared his intention to avenge himself against the “One who rules above…”  Like his father the devil Marx brazenly states:
 
“I shall build my throne high overhead…” (ibid, p. 12)
 
Marx’s boast sounds much like Lucifer’s:

I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God.” (Isaiah 14:13)
 
Like Satan, Marx now dreamt of ruining the world created by the Triune God:
 
Then I will be able to walk triumphantly, Like a god, through the ruins of their kingdom.  Every word of mine is fire and action.  My breast is equal to that of the Creator.” (Quoted in Deutsche Tagespost, West Germany, Dec. 1982)
 
In the poem called “The Player,” Marx confesses that a dark spiritual transformation, or counter-conversion has occurred:

The hellish vapors rise and fill the brain, Till I go mad and my heart is utterly changed. See this sword?  The prince of darkness Sold it to me. For me he beats the time and gives the signs. Ever more boldly I play the dance of death.” (ibid, Wurmbrand, p. 15)

Marx as Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor

In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, "The Brothers Karamazov," (1879-1880) the Grand Inquisitor is an important part of the novel because the character represents one of the most important endowments of the fallen human psyche: moral freedom in the face of good and evil.   In particular, the Grand Inquisitor symbolizes the principle of pride, negation and rebellion in mortal men such Hegel, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, and the evolutionary pantheist Teilhard de Chardin, who though not the actual devil are of like mind with him. 

The Grand Inquisitor is a conscious swindler, a heartless Big Liar who knows that the Triune God of Revelation exists, yet perversely chooses to rebel against God as revealed through Jesus Christ despite that he knows his own life is by the grace of the living Triune God.

Marx's rebellion was against the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  In the twisted manner of the Pharisees, Marx accuses the Triune God of being evil personified even as he perversely lauds Satan as the liberator of man.   Thus he declares war against the Triune God and the world created by Him and in his poem, "The Pale Maiden" he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:

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

Marx's devilish comrade in arms, Mikhail Bakunin, celebrates the Evil One as 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)

The Satanic revolt, like orthodox Christian faith is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of lies, hate and envy; the author of heresy, rebellion, occult science and secret gnosis; the seething energy of evolution, the angel of evolution and the 'god' sought within by Mystery initiates from the pre-flood world to our own.

 When in his rebellion against the Triune God Marx found himself compelled to negate the central conclusion of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo because of his desire to establish that instead of man created in the spiritual image of God,  man “owes his existence (only) to man” and by extension, that the entire history of the world is the creation of man, he virtually recapitulated Thomas Aquinas’ argument for the existence of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, pp. 113-114)
 
Marx first admits that man can only consider himself independent when he,
 
“…owes his existence to himself.  A man who lives by the grace of another regards himself as a dependent being.  But if I live completely by the grace of another...I owe him not only the maintenance of my life, but if he has, moreover, created my life (then) he is the source of my life.  When it is not of my own creation, my life has necessarily a source of this kind outside of it.  The creation is therefore an idea very difficult to dislodge from popular consciousness.” (ibid)
 
From this intellectual exercise Marx correctly concludes that the idea that nature and man are not created but rather conscious products of evolution over billions of years is incomprehensible because it “contradicts everything tangible in practical life.”
 
Marx knows that the Triune God of Revelation exists, so he chooses to will himself to ‘know God does not exist’ and boldly prohibits the asking of questions pertaining to Gods’ existence. To even ask if God exists and if He spoke creation into existence becomes wholly unreasonable, hence reasonable men do not ask such questions.  

Being of one mind with the devil, the Grand Inquisitor (Marx) suggests that in order to affirm that man is god, the denial of the existence of the God of Revelation has in the past been necessary, thus to further his swindle, he asserts antitheism rather than atheism, which is merely a negation of God that nevertheless postulates the existence of man through this negation.  

For the Inquisitor, the prudent course is to flatly deny the existence of the God of Revelation and creation ex nihilo and enforce this dictate by way of terroristic psychological bullying and if need be by murder.  Terrorize believers into groveling submission, and even better, accommodation, by way of destruction of their spiritual virtues via harsh scorn, cruel ridicule, slander and charges of insanity.  

The Inquisitor also knows that if men are deprived of the living God of Revelation they will worship something else.  Thus the Inquisitor proffers the natural religion of scientific socialism and dialectical materialism (evolutionary theory). 

But when later on Darwin published his own theory, the Inquisitor immediately perceived its' philosophical materialist implications.  The idea that humans evolved by chance and natural selection from primordial water or lifeless chemicals lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and provided the "scientific" framework to support the economic infrastructure on which Marx could build his godless communist utopia:

"...the biggest thing going for Darwinism was that it finally broke the tyranny in which Christianity had held the minds of men for so many centuries." (F. Hoyle and C. Wickramasinghe, "Evolution From Space," 1983, pp. xiii-xxii, 81 and 145)

 In this light we can see that Hebrews 6:4-6 refers not only to the Pharisees but to an individual such as Marx, who by the leading of the Holy Spirit had tasted the goodness of the word of God, but now willfully chooses to renounce his faith, close his heart to the Holy Spirit and with malice aforethought, willfully lead unwitting sheep to their destruction.

Such a heart is a darkened soul so thoroughly hardened and unrepentant–and in the case of Marx severely demonically infested–that it not only declares war against God but goes so far as to prohibit questions about His existence and His creation and actively seeks the loss of salvation for others.  Having willfully rejected physical resurrection in eternal paradise, the world made completely anew, it wants no others to have it either.
 
It is too late for such a soul for God has declared He will not forgive blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31), thus such a soul will not be brought back to repentance.  By its’ own decision it decided in favor of hell– outer darkness—for all eternity:

It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31).

 However, with the exception of the unforgivable sin,

"....there is nothing in the category of human offenses that is beyond the reach of divine forgiveness. 'Although your sins be like scarlet, they shall be white as snow,' is the ancient promise given by God to men; 'though they be like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18)  This is not to be interpreted...as an encouragement to sin, but rather as an inducement to repentance. If the sinner truly repents, imploring God’s forgiveness for Jesus’ sake; if he accepts him as Saviour and endeavors, with divine help, to live thereafter a Christian life, he will not only be forgiven, but will be kept from falling back into sin. This is the teaching of the Gospel, and it is exemplified in innumerable cases today. We have many instances everywhere of great sinners who have forsaken their evil ways and who are now living the new life, sustained by divine power....There is no punishment for sins that are forgiven. ‘Jesus paid it all.’” (Bible Answers for 1000 Difficult Questions, christiananswers.net)

As each person has but one life in which to get things right with the Holy Triune God, it is critically important that he or she confess and repent of their sins and seek,

“...the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” (Isaiah 55:6)

The Wicked Nanny: Symptom of America's Dying Soul

Diane Stretton is a live-in nanny hired by the Bracamonte family of Upland, Calif. She was hired in March to help Marcella Bracamonte care for three children ages 11, 4, and 1. In exchange for her work, Stretton was provided room and board.  A few months ago she stopped working and after finally being fired refused to leave the family's home. Not only has she imposed her own demands and requirements on the household but is threatening to sue the Bracamonte's.  (Jun 26, 2014, abcnews.go.com, By SARAH FIGALORA)

In desperation, the Bracamonte's called the police, but they'll do nothing on the grounds that nanny's refusal to leave is a civil matter,

"....generally, once somebody has established residency, you have to go through a formal eviction process."

Had Stretton made it known from the start that she had intentions of establishing residency in the Bracamonte's home they would never have hired her, let alone have allowed her to darken their doorway.   Stretton is obviously a conniving, mean-spirited, vindictive soul, and say the Bracamonte's, she has made our home a living hell.

According to St. Augustine, like all human beings, Stratton is 'cracked.'   Consider the love of human beings for all the vain,

"....and poisonous things that cause so many heartaches, troubles and fears, our joy in conflict, strife and war, and so many plots of enemies and sycophants.   Consider such things as fraud and theft and robbery; the pride we take in depravity, our envy and ambition. cruelty...murder, lawlessness and lust.  Think of all the shameless passions of the impure: fornication...adultery, incest...unnatural sins, rape and countless other filthy acts.  Consider the evil we do to each other: calumnies...cheating, lies...false witness, violence against persons and property.   Indeed, if anyone were to left to live as he pleased and to do what he desired, he would go through practically the whole gamut of sins listed above...those which I wrote down and others I forgot to mention."  (City of God, 22.22)

In our morally debauched society, the wicked nanny is but one of millions of morally disordered, rootless Americans produced by decades of evolutionary humanist (socialist/progressive) indoctrination in our schools, media, and culture.

In his essay, “The New Man,” Dr. Pedro Blas Gonzalez, Professor of Philosophy at Barry University, Miami, Florida, describes America’s rootless man as the product of nihilists. Nihilists have successfully depersonalized Westerners and Americans. They have destroyed the dignity, personhood and capacity for self-knowledge of vast numbers of Americans. Today this new man,

“…is a finely tuned twenty-first century automaton. What greater efficacy than to devoid man of his sense of dignity in order to rule over him? The new man is a hollow entity whose entrails have been removed by guilt and self-doubt. Yet the new man does not notice this, for he has no internal reservoir from where to draw any moral or spiritual strength.” (OrthodoxyToday.org, 2009)
 
The New Man is a mutation, said Seraphim Rose. He is a rootless entity,

“…discontinuous with a past that Nihilism has destroyed, the raw material of every demagogue’s dream; the “free-thinker” and skeptic, closed only to the truth but “open” to each new intellectual fashion because he himself has no intellectual foundation; the “seeker” after some “new revelation,” ready to believe anything new because true faith has been annihilated in him; the planner and experimenter, worshipping “fact” because he has abandoned truth, seeing the world as a vast laboratory in which he is free to determine what is “possible”; the autonomous man, pretending to the humility of only asking his “rights,” yet full of the pride that expects everything to be given him in a world where nothing is authoritatively forbidden; the man of the moment, without conscience or values and thus at the mercy of the strongest “stimulus”; the “rebel,” hating all restraint and authority because he himself is his own and only god; the “mass man,” this new barbarian, thoroughly “reduced and “simplified” and capable of only the most elementary ideas, yet scornful of anyone who presumes to point out the higher things or the real complexity of life.” (Seraphim Rose, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age)

Dr. Gonzalez concurs,

The wisdom contained in history is ruled out by the new man” who has been taught that “he is the stuff of the future. Thus, the past must be obliterated to make room for the designs of social-engineers..”(ibid)

This rootless entity actually believes that he is evolving forward toward greater and greater spiritual perfection. But all of this is a great lie, a massive deception, said Rose:
 
It is of course no secret to contemporary philosophers and psychologists that man himself is changing in our violent century, under the influence, of course, not only of war and revolution, but also of practically everything else that lays claim to being “modern” and “progressive.” We have already cited the most striking forms of Nihilist Vitalism, whose cumulative effect has been to uproot, disintegrate, and “mobilize” the individual, to substitute for his normal stability and rootedness a senseless quest for power and movement, and to replace normal human feeling by a nervous excitability. The work of Nihilist Realism, in practice as in theory, has been parallel and complementary to that of Vitalism: a work of standardization, specialization, simplification, mechanization, dehumanization; its effect has been to “reduce” the individual to the most “Primitive” and basic level, to make him in fact the slave of his environment, the perfect workman in Lenin’s worldwide “factory.” (Seraphim Rose, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age)

In this light, Lloyd Marcus, the Tea Party Movement's most prominent African American, has reason to lament:

"Today, far too many Americans see no shame in living on government assistance or scamming the system....Even wIorse, the Administration portrays getting on welfare as the honorable thing to do. Dear Lord, what kind of nation are we becoming?  An unprecedented 47 million Americans are on food stamps which is riddled with fraud. The Obama Administration has added over 10,000 new oppressive job-killing regulations. Consequently, 90 million are unemployed and on unemployment which is also riddled with fraud. Here's another first for America, over 11 million are receiving disability benefits; riddled with fraud. Clearly, many believe working is for suckers when the government is handing out freebies.....In his War on Achievers, Obama used his bully pulpit to deflate business owners by saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that." Obama and his operatives use compassionate sounding terms such as "social justice" and "income inequality" to justify the government confiscating the earnings of achievers and redistributing it to non-achievers to win their votes. Despicable."  (A heartbreaking unspoken consequence of Obama, Lloyd Marcus, Renew America,June 27, 2014)

Under the pretense of compassion, fairness, equality, 'rights,' universal healthcare, fighting poverty and global change, protecting 'gay rights' (sodomy), and allowing unborn babies to be brutally dismembered on behalf of 'choice'  America's 'broken' law gives the power of death to the self-serving, morally corrupt few over the lives of the inconvenient and unwanted.   It forcibly takes property from one person and gives it to another.  In taking the wealth and property of the many and giving it to a favored few, broken law gives conniving, mean-spirited darkened souls like Diane Stretton the idea that she can move into and take over the Bracamonte's property, to impose herself on them, to terrorize and make shameless demands of them while she lives a parasitic life of ease at their expense. 

Fundamentally, broken law is legalized murder and plunder and  is common to socialists, communists and other nihilists of the totalitarian bent of mind who see crimes against humanity together with forcing everyone to be miserable as a way of putting an end to all conditions that make for covetousness and envy, their own first of all.

The Scourge of Covetousness and Envy

Whether the Founders were individually Christian or not they fully recognized that in light of man's sin nature, covetousness/envy could easily become a driving force in politics, so they designed the Constitution to protect our God-given rights of life, liberty and property from the grasping hand of a tyrannical government.  They never intended for law to assume the role of Big Brother granting man-invented 'rights' 'privileges' and 'entitlements' to certain favored groups or individuals:

"The Constitution is a chart of negative liberties, (it) says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government must do on your behalf." (Who Poses the Greater Threat? Walter Williams, Townhall.com, Mar. 3, 2010)

They also affirmed that as all men are created spiritual equals in the eyes of the One God in three Persons, then life, worth, dignity and other unalienable property rights are conferred upon each human person at conception.  

In "Property," published in The National Gazette on March 29, 1792, James Madison clearly defines the meaning of a person’s God-given spiritual property, some of its’ temporal manifestations and the meaning and intent of just government as opposed to unjust government:

"He has a property....in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them."  "He has a property...in his opinions and the free communication of them."  "He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them." "He has property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person."

Property is,

"....a man's land, or merchandize, or money (and)  as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties or his possessions."

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort:

"This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own." (Samuel Rutherford, Lex Rex; lexrex.com)

The Constitution therefore, recognizes the divine nature of man's creation, that man is a person endowed by his personal Creator with spiritual property, a divine right to life and liberty, and the means of acquiring and possessing property. Hence our Republic recognizes Law is unchangeable because the Creator of "we the people" (and everyone else) is the Lawgiver:

"It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated." (James Madison, Speech at the Virginia Convention, December 2, 1829)

How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust?

"A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law." (Martin Luther King, Excerpts from his Letter from the Birmingham Jail, Apr. 16, 1963)

In keeping with Christian thought, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin connect personhood, virtue, self-control and property rights with morally-ordered freedom:

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

Conversely, they connect corruption, anarchy, and barbarism with man's sin nature:

"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If "Thou shalt not covet" and "Thou shalt not steal" were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free." (John Adams, A Defense of the American Constitutions, 1787, patriotpost.us)

Today the uniquely Christian view of man as a person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons together with the Biblical moral convictions underlying the cultural order have been undermined to the point of near collapse. 

Darwinism in particular and evolutionary science in general have destroyed the foundations of the Christian view of man, thereby reducing “we the people” to conscious products of evolution and by extension making our Constitution a worthless piece of trash.

There are two fundamentally different conceptions of science----one that is scientific and one that is not:

"In the first, science properly deals with reality, mostly in its physical manifestations.  It tries to understand the things that are---what they are, how they work and why..."  The other notion of science---the unscientific one---is an endeavor to....gain power...."   "Man becomes the ultimate master through the exercise of his will by the instrument of science; he makes all things according to his desires (and) assigns to them his purposes, and they have purposes only insofar as he assigns them.  They are nothing in themselves......This is science as ideology, as the construction of a false reality."    (Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior is Changing Everything, Robert R. Reilly, p. 117)

Evolutionary science, whether secular atheist, occult New Age, or 'Christian,' is the science of ideology, the will of fallen man exercised by the instrument of science.   By 1870 Christopher Langdell, dean of Harvard School of Law was exercising his will through the instrument of science by teaching that the nihilistic principles of evolution must be applied to the written opinion of judges. The conclusion was inescapable:

Law was not what the Constitution said it was but what judges said it was. In other words, there was no longer an objective base; the absolutes dissolved along with the supposed demise of the Creator.” (Erwin Lutzer)

Evolutionary scientism rejects miraculous Special Creation and the Fall and teaches instead an inverted exegesis positing billions of years of evolutionary ascent of life from primordial matter, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.

This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism (no right way, no wrong way) because if men were once something else, star dust or a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are men going to become something else but nothing can be said about transgender, ‘gay,’ pederasty, pedophilia, and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by a Big Bang which may or may not involve a god-word shaped and controlled by the will of the theologians who are its' inventers.

As evolutionary scientism is naturalistic it ultimately lacks a source for life, consciousness, and soul, thus whether atheist, New Age or 'Christian' all permutations are merely different expressions of anti-human nihilism which makes man equal to or lower than the nonhuman.

This serves as a license for all manner of crimes against humanity, especially the weakest, the hated, envied, despised and inconvenient.  Between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, evolutionary naturalism led to the brutal murder of in excess of 160,000,000 "unevolved" men, women, and children.

Today, naturalism and evolutionary thinking are taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience, especially within the progressive liberal community. Evolution not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines as well as occult New Age spirituality and all permutations of liberal theology and its primary doctrine evolution.

Progressive liberal theology has stripped the Bible of its miraculous, historical and literal elements, thereby allowing it to be considered as one book of myths among many. No longer is it generally believed that the Bible, especially the Genesis account is the objective revelation of the Triune God, thus man is not a sinner, neither is he a person because he is a conscious product of evolution. In the end, theological liberalism is nothing more than nihilistic humanism in theological dress.

Throughout America nihilist evolutionary conceptions trumpeted by the will of man as 'scientific fact' have finally reached saturation point in our government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, and increasingly within the whole body of the Church. This is why apostasy, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, pornography, drug use, mass murder, decadence, sodomy, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

America's Dying Soul

"No one needs to see films such as The Wolf of Wall Street or American Hustle to know that America is amputating its soul. Those who remember post-Christian Nazi Germany are grieving. They look at America’s demoralized church and ask: Can these bones live?  Ezekiel 37."    (Vishal Mangalwadi, founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement, an Indian philosopher and social reformer and author of The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization)

The soul of America is being amputated under the onslaught of Darwinism and theological liberalism with the following consequences:

1.The abandonment of the transcendent Triune God means abandonment of His eternally unchanging Law together with the unique Christian definition of person and everything built upon it---spiritual property, unalienable rights, and morality---making our founding documents fit for the trash bin of history.

2. Abandonment of  immutable truth and absolute morality means that narcissistic self-centered men and women like Obama and his minions and the wicked nanny are the measure of all things. This is why no one is safe, nor is their property, for our so-called political leadership, opinion and culture shapers, jurists, academics, bureaucracy and increasing numbers of theologians are self-righteous hypocrites, liars, crazies, and psychopaths. Some of them believe they are evolving into supermen, transcended masters and gods.

3. Abandonment of our exclusive Christian worldview has allowed our nation to disintegrate into moral and religious pluralism. Historically, pluralism has been a sign that tectonic change is on the horizon. In this case, it presages America's devastating transformation from its' Christian heritage to Sharia, superstitious paganism and irrational occult pantheist New Age, known politically as Agenda 21 but really spiritualized communism in a green dress.

4.  Powerful, influential occult New Agers, many of them under the influence of spirit guides (demons) are honeycombed within the UN, non-governmental agencies, and at every level of our government, academia, entertainment, media, and elsewhere and have been working towards this sea-change for a very long time now. In their eyes, the disintegration of America not only heralds the death of the hated Old Order (Christian based civilization) but the long-awaited quantum leap in evolution, the catastrophic chaos that utterly destroys the old order and ushers in the utopian 'golden age' of Aquarius.

The Way Forward

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who repented and returned to the Christian faith and his personhood (spiritual being) in the Gulag, sets out a spiritual way forward:

“…the primary key to our being or non-being resides in each individual heart, in (its) preference for specific good or evil…this (is) the most reliable key we have. The social theories that promised so much have demonstrated their bankruptcy, leaving us at a dead end. The free people of the West could reasonably have been expected to realize that they are beset by numerous freely nurtured falsehoods, and not to allow lies to be foisted upon them so easily. All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we direct our consciousness, in repentance to the Creator of all. Without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain….We must…recognize the horror perpetrated not by some outside force, not by class or national enemies, but within each of us individually, and within every society. This is especially true of a free and highly developed society, for here in particular we have surely brought everything upon ourselves, of our own free will. We ourselves, in our daily unthinking selfishness, are pulling tight the noose (and) we can propose only a determined quest for the warm hand of God, which we have so rashly and self-confidently spurned. Only in this way can our eyes be opened to the errors of this unfortunate twentieth century and our hands be directed to setting them right.” (Life Under the Lidless Eye, pp. 38-39, Lee Penn, SCP Journal, Vol. 37:1-37:2, 2013)

In other words, evolutionary humanism in its every permutation is a cornucopia of devilish lies from which we must repent.  The Christian God is very much alive and though we are His spiritual image-bearers we are sinners.   In the words of Solzhenitsyn, evil cuts through the heart of every man and woman, bar none.

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

“…..repentance and the search for our own errors and sin. We must stop blaming everyone else (and) always claiming that we alone are in the right. Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord. Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth. For each and every individual. And every trend of social thought.” (ibid)

America's Rising Tyranny of Evil

In "The President Who Has Done the Most Damage" Dennis Prager writes that never before has he ever written or broadcast that our country is being seriously damaged by a president. So it is with great sadness that I write,
 
"....that President Barack Obama has done and continues to do major damage to America. The only question is whether this can ever be undone. This is equally true domestically and internationally." (Townhall.com,  Oct 29, 2013)    
 
According to Prager, Obama has mired the country in unprecedented levels of debt: about $6.5 trillion dollars in five years while with his Affordable Care Act he has made it impossible for hundreds of thousands, soon millions, of Americans to keep their individual or employee-sponsored group health insurance. He has stymied American medical innovation with an utterly destructive tax on medical devices and caused hundreds of thousands of workers to lose full-time jobs because of the health care costs imposed by Obamacare on employers. His Internal Revenue Service uses its unparalleled power to stymie and punish political dissent and his ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. No one has taken responsibility.
 
Among presidents in modern American history, Obama has been a uniquely divisive force.  Rather than helping heal racial tensions, he has exacerbated them:
 
"He should have been reassuring black Americans that America is in fact the least racist country in the world (instead)  he echoed the inflammatory speech of professional race-baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. He has also divided the country by economic class, using classic Marxist language against "the rich" and "corporate profits."     
 
From the time of the Sumerians, people all around the world have believed there is a war between forces of good and forces of evil. They believed the forces of evil work through people whose work it becomes to lead men into temptation and evil.  

 While the dualism underlying this belief is only partly true since evil exists within every man rather than just some, it is nevertheless true that from the time of Nimrod to our own, evil intentioned people have willfully led other people into sin and evil and in fact receive unholy satisfaction in doing so.
 
From its' inception, the implementation of a socialistic New World Order (global totalitarianism) has necessitated force, terror, Big Lies, revisionist history, psychological manipulation, the sexual perversion and subversion of children, and according to Karl Marx's anarchist comrade Bakunin, unleashing the devil in mankind:

"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)

"We do not fight against believers (or) even clergymen....We fight against God to snatch believers from Him." (Vetchernaia Moskva, a Communist newspaper, ibid, p.77)

The Satanic revolt, like orthodox Christian faith is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of lies and envy, the author of rebellion, and the revelator of secrets.

Satanic revolt is war against the Trinity...the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which in Bakunin's words are the "cursed and fatal principle of authority." Thus it proclaims the reign of moral disorder and nothingness, though a nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of moral disorder personified....the dark Lord of this world.

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)

What all of this means is that contemporary hard-core leftists, socialists, progressives, communists and their fellow travelers such as Obama and his progressive minions are ideological heirs of the Satanic revolt that began as a rebellion against the God of Revelation and Christian theism as far back as the Renaissance eventuating in the proclamation of the death of the Christian God and cataclysmic eruptions of fire, brimstone and rivers of blood in the 20th century. 

America's revolutionaries are part of a program of psychological manipulation and terrorism 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."  Thus in the tradition of Trotsky, Lenin, and Stalin, they deliberately lead men into temptation and evil:

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)
 
Satanic revolutionaries want us to sin so we'll disintegrate into dehumanized socially destructive slaves of unfettered libido who will self-destruct even as they actively participate in the destruction of our own culture and its' life-and-freedom sustaining institutions. 
 
The success of their diabolical program can be seen everywhere, from dying and apostatizing churches to the casually accepted dismemberment of babies on behalf of a woman's "right to choose" to the dysfunction and pornographic filth broadcast into our homes on a daily basis via TV and internet to youth-affirming gender-bending and obscene 'gay' pride parades featuring nudity, sodomy and worse.
 
An entire class of Americans exist today who are morally disordered, sexually corrupt, ignorant, unable to spell or reason and see nothing wrong with lives of parasitism, prostitution, violence and lawlessness.   For example, in "The High Cost of 'Free," Lloyd S. Pettegrew and Carol A. Vance report that in the Denver arena where Mr. Obama gave his DNC 2008 acceptance speech,

"...a woman in the audience became overwhelmed by the speech and said that she no longer needed to worry if she could make her car or mortgage payments because he would take care of it for her. In Cleveland, a woman claimed that she was going to vote for President Obama again because he gave her a free cellphone (along with a litany of other entitlement giveaways)."  (Ludwig von Mises Institute, June 5, 2013)

There is no 'cash tree' growing in Washington D.C. yielding the billions of dollars handed out by politicians for 'free' cell phones, 'free' house payments, 'free' education, 'free' condoms,  'free' abortions, 'free' healthcare, 'free' sex-change operations and other 'entitlement' giveaways.    Money doesn't grow on trees---it has to be earned the hard way by people who work.

The allure of "free" is so powerful, so overwhelmingly seductive that an alarming number of people, both citizen and noncitizen alike, willfully choose to become wards or 'slaves' of Big Brother's entitlement/welfare state rather than captain their own destiny:

"Economist Nicholas Eberstadt of the American Enterprise Institute believes that Americans have become a nation of takers, threatening the self-reliance that has long characterized our national psyche. Eberstadt (2012, p. 4) presents data showing that entitlement payments to Americans, since 1960, have risen annually by 9.5 percent..... This has resulted in 49 percent of American households receiving one or more government transfer benefits (Eberstadt 2013); this amounts to 18 percent of all personal income and a burden of $7,400 for every American." (ibid)

Writing in agreement, Lloyd Marcus, the Tea Party Movement's most prominent African American, laments that decades of socialist/progressive indoctrination in our schools, media and culture, plus six years of Obama, has yielded a devastating unspoken consequence. It is the loss of who we use to be as Americans:

"Today, far too many Americans see no shame in living on government assistance or scamming the system....Even worse, the Administration portrays getting on welfare as the honorable thing to do. Dear Lord, what kind of nation are we becoming?  An unprecedented 47 million Americans are on food stamps which is riddled with fraud. The Obama Administration has added over 10,000 new oppressive job-killing regulations. Consequently, 90 million are unemployed and on unemployment which is also riddled with fraud. Here's another first for America, over 11 million are receiving disability benefits; riddled with fraud. Clearly, many believe working is for suckers when the government is handing out freebies.....In his War on Achievers, Obama used his bully pulpit to deflate business owners by saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that." Obama and his operatives use compassionate sounding terms such as "social justice" and "income inequality" to justify the government confiscating the earnings of achievers and redistributing it to non-achievers to win their votes. Despicable."  (A heartbreaking unspoken consequence of Obama, Lloyd Marcus, Renew America,June 27, 2014)

Under the pretense of compassion, fairness, equality, 'rights,' fighting poverty, protecting 'gay rights' and the environment, and granting 'choice' to abortion activists our 'broken' law forcibly takes property from one person and gives it to another.  It takes the wealth of the many and gives it to a favored few.  It gives the power of death to the self-serving, morally corrupt few over the lives of the inconvenient and unwanted.   This is legalized murder and plunder and  is common to socialists, communists and others of the totalitarian bent of mind who see plunder and murder together with forcing everyone to be miserable as a way of putting an end to all conditions that make for covetousness and envy, their own first of all.

The Founders fully recognized that in light of man's sin nature, covetousness/envy could easily become a driving force in politics, so they designed the Constitution to protect our God-given rights of life, liberty and property from the grasping hand of a tyrannical government.  They never intended for law to assume the role of Big Brother granting man-invented 'rights' 'privileges' and 'entitlements' to certain favored groups or individuals:

"The Constitution is a chart of negative liberties, (it) says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government must do on your behalf." (Who Poses the Greater Threat? Walter Williams, Townhall.com, Mar. 3, 2010)
 
"Envy is rottenness to the bones" (Proverbs 14:30)
 
Whether it is the genocidal socialism of the former Soviet Union, the version espoused by the Nazis or the Americanized socialism that is emerging here, the overarching sentiment is the very same cold-blooded deadly sin---covetousness/envy:
 
"Marxism has been described as a blood cult, with envy its abiding stimulant, fuel, and motive."  (Joseph Epstein, former editor of The American Scholar, quoted in "Truths About Socialism," Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)

Where the faithful Christian Church promises the remission of original sin, regeneration by the Spirit of God and salvation in paradise, godless utopian fantasies hold a redemptive belief in the Promethean destiny of mankind.  This was the messianic dream of the Workers' Paradise where all conditions making for envy/covetousness would be put to an end by liberating libido and seizing all 'sinful' property---including wives, daughters and sons coveted by the libidinous---and by liquidating all state 'enemies,' (i.e., the human objects of envy, dissidents). 
 
 'Enemy' was a totally elastic category that expanded or contracted to meet political needs, libidinous desires, whims and caprices of the moment:

"The enemy is the great justification for terror, and the totalitarian state needs enemies to survive.  If it lacks them, it invents them.  Once they have been identified, they are treated without mercy."   Being an enemy is enough, "there is no need actually to have done anything at all."  (The Black Book of Communism, Courtois, Werth, Panne, Paczkowski, Bartosek, Margolin, . p. 747)
 
The methodology of evil begins by labeling the hated and envied as 'enemies' (i.e. in America--- homophobe, racist, bigot, pro Special Creation, pro-lifer, pro-traditional marriage, Tea Party conservative) and then declared criminals, which leads to exclusion from society.   Where power is total, exclusion very quickly leads to arrest and then extermination:

"The leaders of totalitarian regimes saw themselves as the moral guardians of society and were proud of their right to send anyone they chose to their death."  (ibid, p. 748)
 
If not death then deportation---and no trial necessary:
 
"But when you were deported, what was it for? What was the charge?" "Why bother to think up a charge? 'Socially harmful' or 'socially dangerous element'--S.D.E.', they called it. Special decrees, just marked by letters of the alphabet. So it was quite easy. No trial necessary."  "And what about your husband? Who was he?" "Nobody. He played the flute in the Leningrad Philharmonic. He liked to talk when he'd had a few drinks." ".We knew one family with grown-up children, a son and a daughter, both Komsomol (Communist youth members). Suddenly the whole family was put down for deportation to Siberia. The children rushed to the Komsomol district office. 'Protect us!' they said. 'Certainly we'll protect you,' they were told. 'Just write on this piece of paper: As from today's date I ask not to be considered the son, or the daughter, of such-and-such parents. I renounce them as socially harmful elements and I promise in the future to have nothing whatever to do with them and to maintain no communication with them."    (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn,   Cancer Ward)   

 As envy really is rottenness to the bones, the reduction (dehumanization) of the hated and envied to pig, weed, dog, filth, bigot, homophobe, or socially harmful element for example, occurs as a matter of course in the darkened, burning soul of the envious, especially to the soulless husks void of empathy and conscience.   Just as dehumanization precedes branding  as 'enemy,'  legalized plunder and exclusion from society, so it precedes the death of the envied, as was the case with Cain before he murdered his brother.

The systematic murder of millions of people in the former Soviet Union was primarily facilitated by two things.  First by 'scientifically' animalizing  'others,' the objects of hatred, resentment and envy.   This was achieved by application of the Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking that ultimately enabled Marxists to justify their monstrous crimes against humanity.   Second, by maliciously whipping up and enflaming covetousness/envy within the hearts of the 'oppressed.' Here in the Socialist Democracy of America the oppressed are 'special rights' groupies consisting of "gays," man-hating feminists, certain black-skinned people, Muslims (particularly jihadis), illegals, and other people of 'color.'

In 1956, Ludwig von Mises exposed the rottenness of envy and resentment fueling the paradoxical reasoning of envy-bitten people who are favorably disposed toward socialism rather than capitalism:
 
"It is paradoxical indeed that the leaders of these Oriental peoples, while casting longing glances at the prosperity of the Western nations, reject the methods that made the West prosperous and are enraptured by Russian communism that is instrumental in keeping the Russians and their satellites poor. It is still more paradoxical that Americans, enjoying the products of capitalistic big business, exalt the Soviet system and consider it quite "natural" that the poor nations of Asia and Africa should prefer communism to capitalism." (Reactionary Socialism, Mises Daily, Dec. 12, 2011)

Those who willfully choose evil, that is, the envy-fueled legal plunder or redistributionist policies of socialism,

"...are blinded by envy and ignorance. They stubbornly refuse to study economics and spurn the economists' devastating critique of the socialist plans because, in their eyes, economics, being an abstract theory, is simply nonsense. They pretend to trust only in experience. But they no less stubbornly refuse to take cognizance of the undeniable facts of experience, viz., that the common man's standard of living is incomparably higher in capitalistic American than in the socialist paradise of the Soviets." (ibid)

At the end of WW II, dispirited atheist, communist, socialist, progressive and Christian thinkers began to analyze the crisis the war had precipitated and to reconstruct the civilization it had threatened.  Out of these efforts arose the "new conservative" or traditionalist wing of the postwar conservative intellectual movement in America. (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 30)
 
Their penetrating analysis of the ideas underlying and fueling communism and socialism such as the total immanent society (omnipotent, all-knowing society), Social Darwinism, positivism, rationalism, naturalism, materialism, collectivism, atomistic liberalism and underlying them all, atheism, led many of them to declare that evil ideas working through the minds of men had ultimately unleashed the catastrophic evils that had enveloped much of the world.  Upon this realization many of them either returned or converted to orthodox supernatural Christian theism.
 
For example, Douglas Hyde, an English ex-Communist and convert to Catholic Christianity emphatically declared:
 
"The sanest things on earth are those for which the allegedly reactive, unscientific, obscurantist Church stands and for which she is doing battle." (ibid, p. 52)
 
"Christianity is the most complete and perfect revelation of the nature of God and of God's will for man," wrote John Hallowell in 1950.  

Supernatural orthodox Christianity was the unifying thesis of Hallowell's interpretation of modern scientific/evolutionary  political philosophy:
 
"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insights we have into the nature of man and of the crisis in which we find ourselves.  That crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of a transcendent or spiritual reality and of his progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent conception of reality....Only through a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ, can modern man and his society find redemption from the tyranny of evil."  (ibid, p. 53)
 
The Christianity which Hallowell, Buckley, Hyde, Vivas and others defended was not the liberal or modernist evolutionary Christianity of the Social Gospel and Gnostic immanent Protestantism. Nor would it be the evolutionary theism, progressive creationism or any of the myriad of  twisted theology posing as Christianity today.  What early Conservatives proposed and defended was supernatural Christianity grounded in what for many early conservatives was the deepest, most terrifying lesson of WW II: the lesson of evil, of original sin:
 
"We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin," asserted Hallowell.  To Richard Weaver, no concept gave deeper insight into the "enigma that is man" than original sin.  Evil was not just a "bad dream" an "accident of history," or "the creation of a few antisocial men."   Evil is a "subtle, pervasive, protean force," and original sin was a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing."   (ibid, 53)
 
Eliseo Vivas concurred.   Inside every man and woman he said, lay "brutality" and a "natural tendency" to define value in his own interests (moral relativism).  And this is precisely what powerful, amoral socialists, progressives, and others of the evolutionary and totalitarian mindset do, thereby liberating themselves and their malignant allies to maliciously fan the flames of covetousness/envy and hate in the hearts of our youth:
 
"Atheist teachers in the West are bringing up a younger generation in a spirit of hatred of their own society. Amid all the vituperation we forget that the defects of capitalism represent the basic flaws of human nature, allowed unlimited freedom together with the various human rights; we forget that under Communism (and Communism is breathing down the neck of all moderate forms of socialism, which are unstable) the identical flaws run riot in any person with the least degree of authority; while everyone else under that system does indeed attain 'equality'--the equality of destitute slaves. This eager fanning of the flames of hatred is becoming the mark of today's free world. Indeed, the broader the personal freedoms are, the higher the level of prosperity or even of abundance--the more vehement, paradoxically, does this blind hatred become. The contemporary developed West thus demonstrates by its own example that human salvation can be found neither in the profusion of material goods nor in merely making money."   Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
 
The social implications of Original Sin were obvious to early conservatives who believed that if the West and America were to have any chance of surviving rather than finally erupting in flames and blood, then there must be a revival of traditional Christianity as revealed by Jesus Christ God incarnate along with the restoration to our vocabulary of a word discarded long ago, namely sin.
 
Peter Hitchens, author of "The Rage Against God" agrees.  The living, supernatural God of the Bible is the chief rival of global socialist utopians whose power has grown enormously due to the trivialization of sin by the submissive, irrelevant contemporary church and through an alliance with radical Muslims and the cult of unrestrained libido unleashed into the Western world by Freud, Reich, Kinsey and Marcuse,
 
".... promoted by the self-pitying anthems of rock music, and encouraged by the enormous power of 'progressive' education in which so many cultural revolutionaries work."  (p. 135)
 
Echoing the cautionary advice of early conservative intellectuals, Hitchens  warns that only the concepts of sin,
 
".....of conscience, of eternal life, and of divine justice under an unalterable law are the ultimate defense against the utopian's belief that ends justify means and that morality is relative.   These concepts are safeguards against the worship of human power." (p. 135)
 
Without these safeguards America and the West will be overcome by the tyranny of evil rapidly overspreading our culture today.

The Ultimate Madness

Just recently, two homosexuals filed a complaint against Jack Phillips, a Christian baker who runs Masterpiece bakery, for refusing to provide them with a 'wedding' cake.  To rectify this great sin, the Colorado Civil Rights Division ordered Phillips employees to attend abominable sensitivity training:

The government … seek[s] to impose a new belief system upon Jack [Phillips], one that is fundamentally at odds with his conscience and his liberty,” explained a legal filing from attorneys with the Alliance Defending Freedom representing Phillips and his Masterpiece Cakes in Lakewood." (Judge has 'epiphany' in ruling against Christians, Bob Unruh, WND, 6/2014)
 
The substance of this new belief system is the rising universal madness foretold by the German philosopher Nietzsche.  Speaking through the writings of Nietzsche, who declared the death of the Christian God, the spirit Zarathustra said that because apostate Christians had murdered the Christian God in the 19th century there would follow two terrible consequences beginning in the 20th century. (Romans 1:18)

First, the 20th century would become one of the most evil century's in history, and second, a universal madness (Romans 1:21, 22) would break out and turn the once glorious W. Europe and America upside-down.

Universal Madness

The death of the Christian God ends in madness for His death logically means there is no source for life, consciousness, soul, reason and will, or for human dignity, worth, liberty, and property. Without God the Father unalienable (God-given) rights are meaningless. If man is not God's spiritual image-bearer, then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ walked this earth:

"Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if God does not exist, then the human self cannot exist either......Therefore, he deconstructed the Hindu idea of the soul. When one starts peeling the onion skin of one's psyche, he discovers that there is no solid core at the center of one's being. Your sense of self is an illusion. Reality is nonself (anatman). You don't exist. Liberation, the Buddha taught, is realizing the unreality of your existence." (The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, p. 6)

Non-belief in one's own soul (nihilism) is the logical assumption if the transcendent One God in three Persons does not exist. Nihilism is spiritual, moral, and intellectual suicide, yet for the last two hundred years, Enlightenment evolutionary humanists — secular, occult pantheist and their theological counterparts--- have been moving the West and America closer and closer to Buddha's denial of the soul.

Beginning with Kant, soul was separated from body. Man was a machine. Soul hovered somewhere in the vicinity. This did not go far enough for Enlightenment nature philosophers however. 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 no Western thinker has Buddha's nihilist doctrine been more clearly expressed than in Nietzsche's ecstatic utterance, "God is dead."  The Christian God is dead in the hearts of modern Westerners:

"...and it is as true of the atheists and Satanists who rejoice in the fact, as it is of the unsophisticated multitudes....Man has lost faith in God and in the Divine Truth that once sustained him; the apostasy to worldliness that has characterized the modern age since its beginning becomes, in Nietzsche, conscious of itself and finds words to express itself. God is dead..." (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 60)

Prior to the turn of the century, the Christian God was already dead in the hearts of America's 'elite' progressive ruling class and upon the arrival of Swami Vivekananda at the Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893 spiritually darkened 'elites' eagerly embraced him:

"He was immediately lionized by high society in Boston and New York. Philosophers at Harvard were mightily impressed. Many wealthy high society types and intellectuals reverted to the Buddhist idea that self is an illusion. They constituted a '... hard core of disciples who supported him and his grandiose dream: the evangelizing of the Western world by....Vedantic (monistic) Hinduism." (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 21)

Vedanta Societies were established in America and Europe for the purpose of injecting Vedantic ideas into the bloodstream of the West and America. Among those who helped disseminate Vedanta monism were Aldous Huxley, Christopher Isherwood, Somerset Maugham, and Teilhard de Chardin.

The Sixties witnessed a whole series of Indian gurus make their mark on the student generation. Popular culture was introduced to any number of nature-beliefs, from Vedanta monism, Zen Buddhism, pantheism, panentheism, reincarnation and karma to belief in a vague immanent 'force,' World Soul, Gaia (Mother Earth) and Teilhard de Chardin's Omega Point:

".....de Chardin believed that humanity could achieve a form of Godhood or a high level of spirituality called the Omega Point. This was an evolutionary process that everyone could attain through discipline and dedication to the path of enlightenment." (Reflections of the Omega Point, Frank Tipler, omegapoint.org)

The exciting new spirituality discouraged belief in the Triune God and promised followers that by dedication to the occult path of enlightenment they would attain godhood through the merging of their souls with the evolving universe of matter and energy. Through guided imagery, Tantric sex, kundalini yoga, hypnosis, possibility-thinking, dream-work, past-life regression, mind-altering drugs, rhythmic music, channeling and other spiritistic practices  initiates could be raised to new levels of consciousness, develop psychic powers, release their souls from their bodies through astral projection and merge their consciousness with the void.

In his article, "Confronting Neo-Paganism in the Culture and the Church" Dr. Peter Jones reports that many of the architects of the new spirituality,

".... such as Aldous Huxley, Joseph Campbell, and Huston Smith were converts of Vedanta ..... Contemporary architects... call themselves 'Cultural Creative's,' 'Progressives,' 'Evolutionaries,' 'Integral Spiritualists,' 'Interspiritualists' or 'Transtraditional Spiritualists.' It is doubtless true to say that the key New Age leaders and their present disciples all claim some form of Vedantic enlightenment." (truthexchange, Apr. 12, 2011)

For example, spiritual evolutionist and Vedanta prophet Ken Wilber, a Mahayana Buddhist from a Christian background, teaches "integral spirituality." A popular author whose teachings have been avidly studied by world leaders and America's 'elite' ruling class, Wilber combines evolution with the world's nature religions, morals, and Eastern and Western philosophy so as to establish a universal spirituality.

A panentheist, Wilber imagines that the entire universe is God evolving from matter through billions of years toward de Chardin's 'Omega Point.' Having evolved from primordial soup beast-man now evolves toward total god-consciousness, and in this way, the imaginary god is in process of becoming while evolution becomes conscious of itself.

A form of Christianized-Vedanta monism is already here, said Dr. Peter Jones:

"Evolutionary Christianity" is producing the longed-for and much-prophesied synthesis, namely, the union of science and spirituality.... Evolutionary Christianity is a variant of Wilber's 'Theory of Everything,' a worldview of (Vedanta monism) that claims to explain everything through the notion of human evolution into a non-dual divine. Michael Dowd, the ex-Evangelical now evangelist for evolution (agrees) with Bishop's Spong's post-theistic Christianity (and) declares supernatural other-worldly religion will die out for a post-metaphysical natural religion."

Jones adds that Evolutionary Christianity is an online gathering place for:

"....evangelical theistic evolutionists, 'progressive' Emergent Christian leaders, radical post-theistic Christian liberals, Christian non-dual mystics, pro-homosexual ministers, radical religious feminists, and recognized evolutionary scientists. Some are deeply influenced by Pierre Teillard de Chardin, and pagan "geologians" such as Thomas Berry and Brian Swimme."

Emergent Church Pastor Rob Bell for example, enthusiastically endorses Ken Wilber and claims to be reinventing Christianity as an Eastern religion while evangelical leader Leonard Sweet uses quantum physics to 'scientifically' prove that God is 'in' everything. Not surprisingly, Sweet cites Teilhard de Chardin as "20th century Christianity's major voice." (Normalizing Necromancy: Tempting the Church to Talk with the Dead, Worldview Weekend, 1/23/12)

Nihilism underlies all permutations of the 'new' spirituality, whether Evolutionary Christianity in its various 'scientific Big Bang" permutations, Hinduism, Gnosticism, Mythology, Jungian Depth Psychology, the Perennial Philosophy, Interfaith, Trans-humanism, Wicca, Scientology, Goddess worship, or the spiritual 'gay' agenda, for there is no form of the new spirituality that is not naturalistic. All are equally God-less; none have an ultimate source for life, consciousness, and soul, hence all are merely different expressions of nihilism.

"The LORD shall strike you with madness, and blindness, and confusion of mind."   Deut. 28:28

Wherever the rebellious, the God-haters and apostates go, the curse of God follows. The Lord smites them with madness--- with blindness of mind, hardness of heart and agony of meaninglessness.

It is already the case that for increasing numbers of Westerners and Americans the death of the Christian God has made it impossible for them to affirm the existence of the human self thus in their madness they actively seek the annihilation of their souls through drugs, Tantric sex, yoga, and meditation. As with Buddha and contemporary Hindu gurus some initiates are trying to merge their individual consciousness with the void.

Original Sin

From the pre-flood world to our own, Original sin is why the very worst of our kind inevitably rise to the top of society and drive it into ruination as is the case in the Western civilized world and here in America.  Wrote C.S. Lewis:

"The key is history. Terrific energy expended — civilizations are built up — excellent institutions devised; but each time something goes wrong. Some fatal flaw always brings the selfish and cruel people to the top and it all slides back into misery and ruin.

Though power-hungry, selfish and cruel God-hating nihilists profess themselves the best and brightest, they are mad.  Their cognitive thought processes are darkened (vain) and with their conscience dead to sin they are also fools, meaning they uncritically accept and publicly profess incredibly stupid, demeaning conceptions of themselves such as man is an evolved poly-gender being, an ape, machine, transcended master or trans-human evolving into god.

"And I will give children to be their princes, and the effeminate shall rule over them." Isaiah 3:4 Douay Rheims Bible

Reason is a gift of God to His creatures, thus in turning away from the Spirit of God and the Truth He has given, God allows the rebellious to fall into madness and stupidity.  Thus  'wise' males become effeminate and females mannish. They are adolescent emotional-tyrants in adult-size bodies: sinister, double-minded, vengeance-seeking, greedy, spiteful, vindictive, treacherous, promiscuous, back-stabbing self-righteous hypocrites driving America over the edge of the abyss into Pandemonium where in their perversity they court Satanists, pimps, prostitutes, terrorists and mass-murderers and actively seek the way of Luciferian initiation. Like demons they  flee from the cross of Jesus but exalt the evolving universe of matter and energy and the devil as the first free thinker, the genetic creator of man, the seething energy and angel of evolution. In the American Pandemonium, truth is lies, evil is good, the crooked is straight, hatred is love, unfaithfulness is faith and the maddened preach and blaspheme from pulpits, abuse political power, enact broken legislation, and wield broken law to plunder, punish, ruin and seek vengeance against 'hated' other.

Vengeance

Whether it is forcing decent Christian bakers to provide cakes for practitioners of sodomy, plundering the wealth and property of others, demanding that all males and females be reduced to non-gender specific entities, unleashing predators upon ranchers and farmers in the name of wildlife-preservation, dismembering babies in the name of 'reproductive choice,'  deprivation of gas, oil, and energy in the name of global change, or psychologically ridiculing, marginalizing and diminishing faithful Christian creationists, pro-lifers and defenders of traditional marriage, all are acts of spite, malice, and vengeance, the principle manifestations of pride (or self-esteem) which together with selfishness, ingratitude, covetousness, envy, and hate (collectively speaking: resentment) demonstrates preference for one's self instead of the Triune God and ‘other,’ and just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, covetousness, envy, hate and murder are its' final results, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.
 
Resentment is the 'wisdom' of madness that,

"....does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where envying and contention is, there is inconstancy, and every evil work. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere." James 3: 15-17
 
Resentment does much to explain the GOP’s vengeful war against the Tea Party, the use of the IRS against conservatives and Christian organizations, Obama’s unworkable universal healthcare; progressive taxation, and other redistribution of personal wealth schemes together with mandated sexual perversion of our youth by perverse sex educators, multiculturalism (erasure of all differences), reproductive choice (hatred of human life), animal rights (hatred and degradation of humanity), naturalism (nature as lord of the universe), evolutionism (idolaters to God: you are not my Father), population control schemes (possessiveness and hatred of and death-wishing toward 'others'), 'legalized' illegal immigration (hatred of traditional Americans), Agenda 21 (more of the same evils), depriving Americans of their right of self-defense, and much of what mainstream media write off as senseless crime. 

In his "Journey to the Celestial City," Wayne Martindale describes maddened God-haters as haters of good people. Self-centeredness, hate, and envy twist their hearts, thus they prefer evil thoughts, evil words, evil companions and evil acts, though it makes them wretched and miserable. 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)

America is being driven through the Looking Glass into Pandemonium by selfish, cruel Mad Hatters who blame God for their own weaknesses, failures and willfully chosen sins, which they deny responsibility for and transfer upon  hated 'others' who are then scapegoated and crucified for sins not their own.   

Original sin means a fixed nature rather than a nature in process of evolutionary change.  This is really why Mad Hatter evolutionists hate the Genesis account of miraculous six day creation ex nihilo and Jesus Christ God incarnate.   For if Jesus is God in the flesh then He is the God of the Old Testament Who made them "male and female in the beginning."  Hence man really is the fallen spiritual image bearer of the Triune God because Adam and Eve are historical people, which in turn logically points to the reality of Original Sin, Judgment and eternity in either Paradise or Hell. 

In willfully rejecting Original Sin evolutionists, whether secular or theological, logically reject salvation, which is why they must reject enough else that the Gospel of Jesus ceases to be recognizable. 

Ultimate Madness

 C.S. Lewis sees the importance of free moral agency, for the living Triune God ultimately honors our choices, whether for good or evil, as demonstrated by the unwise choices of evolutionary humanists, apostatizing Christians and others of that persuasion.

Choosing pride, self-centeredness and cruelty maddened nihilists are unwisely rejecting the God of Revelation and His offer of eternal life in Paradise. Thus their envy and self-idolatry lead to the conceptual murder of the Christian God and the rejection of His work on the cross, which means that by their own choice--their own madness---they shut themselves out of paradise. So Lewis makes this point, saying that Hell is of their choosing.... the ultimate madness:

"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."

Who is Intolerant because Ashamed: Creationists or Evolutionary Theologians?

It's no longer easy to be a faithful Christian in America, says Dr. Robert P. George, chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.  Our culture increasingly condemns Christian beliefs as bigoted and hateful:

 “They despise us if we refuse to call good evil and evil good.” (American Christians Should Prepare to Be Despised, Official Tells National Prayer Breakfast, Rob Kerby, ChristianHeadlines.com, May 15, 2014)

The Princeton University professor and author told Washington, D.C.’s 10th annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast that American culture no longer favors faithful Christians. For example, he asked attendees to consider,

“....the derision that comes from being pro-life and pro-traditional marriage (they) threaten us with consequences if we refuse to call what is good, evil, and what is evil, good. They demand us to conform our thinking to their orthodoxy, or else say nothing at all…"

Dr. George told the prayer breakfast:

 "The intimidation to remain silent is insidious and growing...what American Christians are facing is the 21st century version of the question, ‘Am I ashamed of the Gospel?" 
 
If anything, some evolutionary theologians and their gullible Christian flocks, both evolutionary theist and progressive creationist, are at least as hostile if not more so toward faithful defenders of the miracle of Special Creation than are their evolutionary atheist and occult pantheist counterparts: Luciferians, god-men, goddesses, shaman, Satanists, witches, necromancers, and astrologers.
 
The usual diatribe thrown against altogether despised creationists goes something like this: 
 
Since Darwin introduced the theory of evolution some Christians have been uncomfortable with the idea that all species (i.e., reptiles, birds, bugs, dogs, apes, humans) share a common ancestry moving from primordial matter to creeping things, crawling things, swimming things, knuckle-dragging things to man under the direction of the God of evolution.   Thus the Earth was not created instantaneously as St. Augustine held or created in six days as most early Church Fathers affirmed. Nor was Adam created by the One God in three Persons as a living soul embodied in flesh, fully person, fully man right from the beginning.   Adam and Eve, if they even existed were emergent products of evolution, their closest relative soulless hominids.  Thus the events described in Genesis are not meant to convey the miraculous creation ex nihilo but the scientific 'reality' that the universe has an impotent creator that made and ignited a Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) which generated matter and energy. Then after billions of years of God-directed evolution eventuating in the suffering and death of millions of life-forms (God's fault, btw) man inexplicably fell from grace even though God is the guilty party, the real cause of death and suffering. 

According to this counter-intuitive Gnostic-laced tale of nonsense, evolutionary science, not God's Revelation, is a reality in nature explainable by reason and empirical observation and faithful Christians who deny this are in denial of reality.  Faithful Christians who actually affirm the Revelation of God and Special Creation are guilty of defending the backwards, anti-scientific, anti-evolution 'fundamentalist' interpretation of the book of Genesis thus are not only a cause of embarrassment to fashionably-correct, scientifically enlightened Christians, but are also guilty of harming Christianity. (Creationism Harms Christianity, sacerdotus.wordpress.com)

However, it isn't faithful Christians who are ‘embarrassments’ but rather intellectually arrogant evolution-obsessed theologians.  These wolves in sheep clothing mesmerize and persuade susceptible Christian sheep to uncritically accept dangerous esoteric ideas like evolution.
 
With respect to Darwin’s theory, Darwin is not its’ inventor. He received the idea from his nature-worshipping pagan grandfather Erasmus Darwin, an important name in European Masonic anti-Christian Church organizations engaged in destructive revolutionary activism. Erasmus mentored his grandson Charles:
 
"Dr. Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802) was the first man in England to suggest those ideas which were later to be embodied in the Darwinian theory by his grandson, Charles Darwin (1809-1882) who wrote in 1859 Origin of Species." (Scarlet and the Beast, Vol. II, John Daniel, p. 34)
 
According to anthropologist Henry Fairfield Osborn, longtime director of the American Museum of Natural History, ancient pagans are the inventers of modern evolutionism. In the introduction to his history of evolutionism Osborn wrote:
 
"When I began the search for anticipations of the evolutionary theory....I was led back to the Greek natural philosophers and I was astonished to find how many of the pronounced and basic features of the Darwinian theory were anticipated even as far back as the seventh century B.C." (Osborn, From the Greeks to Darwin, p. xi)
 
By its’ nature evolutionism belongs to the category of naturalism (all that exists is nature or cosmos), making it antithetical, or in fierce opposition to the infinite Triune God, the supernatural dimension and special creation.  The personal Triune God is outside of His creation---the natural dimension of space, time, matter and energy---thus He is not subject to the laws of science:
 
"....science has no satisfactory answer to the question of the origin of life on the earth. Perhaps the appearance of life on the earth is a miracle. Scientists are reluctant to accept that view, but their choices are limited: either life was created on the earth by the will of a being outside the grasp of scientific understanding, or it evolved on our planet spontaneously, through chemical reactions occurring in nonliving matter lying on the surface of the planet. The first theory places the question of the origin of life beyond the reach of scientific inquiry. It is a statement of faith in the power of a Supreme Being not subject to the laws of science. The second theory is also an act of faith. The act of faith consists in assuming that the scientific view of the origin of life is correct, without having concrete evidence to support that belief." (Until the Sun Dies, Robert Jastrow, Ph.D. Theoretical Physics, pp. 62-63, 1977)
 
Only by conceptually murdering the supernatural Triune God and replacing Him with a ‘god’ within the natural dimension (naturalism), thus subject to scientific inquiry, can intellectually arrogant theologians presume to speak for god, claiming that he made and exploded a Cosmic Egg and directs evolutionary transformism together with the rest of their twisted theology dressed in Christian clothing.
 
As an idea evolution is like an onion consisting of multitudinous layers of esoteric meaning.  Darwin's theory occupies two or three layers. The many other layers already existed prior to Erasmus going back to the Renaissance and before that to ancient Chaldea and India thence to ancient Greece and Rome where evolution is always and everywhere connected to reincarnation and spiritual evolution (transformism).   

On ancient pagan conceptions of reincarnation and spiritual evolution early Church Father Gregory of Nyssa said:
 
"[I]f one should search carefully, he will find that their doctrine is of necessity brought down to this. They tell us that one of their sages said that he, being one and the same person, was born a man, and afterward assumed the form of a woman, and flew about with the birds, and grew as a bush, and obtained the life of an aquatic creature—and he who said these things of himself did not, so far as I can judge, go far from the truth, for such doctrines as this—of saying that one should pass through many changes—are really fitting for the chatter of frogs or jackdaws or the stupidity of fishes or the insensibility of trees" (The Making of Man 28:3; A.D. 379). 
 
Evolution appeared in Christendom during the Renaissance when certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Chaldean astrology, Hermetic magic, occult Jewish Kabbalah, Eastern mystical traditions and the ancient ways of ‘going within’ (contacting spirits).  All of this was accompanied by conceptions of reincarnation and spiritual evolution.  They studied these ancient occult traditions which they translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science – the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through ritual procedures and spiritual evolution is the best proof of the divinity of Christ.  (God and the Knowledge of Reality, Thomas Molnar, pp. 78-79)
 
Father Richard John Neuhaus pulls all of these occult traditions together in his analysis of modern evolutionary scientism as a revitalization of ancient spiritual traditions closely connected to elemental spirits. In his book, “American Babylon,” Neuhaus argues that astrological elemental spirits (powers and principalities) have been recast as,
 
"...evolutionary dynamics, life forces, or laws of nature." Though described as laws rather than spirits, these elemental "forces".... work their inexorable ways in cold indifference to reason, to will, to love, and to hope. In short, it is suggested that the elemental spirits are in charge and that human freedom is a delusion." (p. 226)
 
Despite that modern evolutionary theologians validate their esoteric projects as empirical or observational science in reality observational science is their enemy.   For instance, evolutionary theology alleges that hominids are supposed to be our ancestors, the so-called transitional life-forms linking modern humans to the common ancestor of all life.   

However, the hominid claim has fallen flat on its’ face, said Carl Wieland. In "Making Sense of Apeman Claims," Wieland reports that a consistent pattern has emerged in direct opposition to the evolutionary story.  Over the decades, each new fossil find has been falling quite naturally into one of only three major groups.    And two of these, Neanderthal and Homo erectus turn out to be strikingly similar, in fact Neanderthals are "clearly human descendants of Adam." (Creation, Vol. 36, No. 3, 2014, p. 38)
 
Although the third category generates the most excitement among evolution-worshippers it turns out to be an extinct non-human primate group, anatomically not between apes and humans.   

Sequencing of Neanderthal DNA clearly shows interbreeding with modern populations, particularly those from Eastern Europe, meaning that Neanderthals are not a separate species, despite evolutionary claims that they split off from the human lineage 500,000 years ago.  This evidence is a major blow to evolutionary theist and "progressive" or "old-earth creationist notions." (p. 38).
 
It is because evolutionary 'old-earth' theologians reject what God said in favor of what man said, their starting point is fallible secular dating, hence they,
 
"....must regard Neanderthals as pre-Adamic soulless nonhumans despite all the archaeological evidences of their humanity.   But DNA now makes this completely dead in the water, having children together means they must be the same created kind."  (pp. 38-39)
 
Among the scientifically affirmed finds showing that Neanderthals were human are:
 
1. Stone tools and specialized bone tools for leatherworking.

2. The controlled use of fire, including heating birch bark peelings to make special pitch to haft wooden shafts onto stone tools.

3.  Perfectly balanced, finely crafted wooden hunting javelins.

4. Jewelry

5. Evidence of body decorations and cosmetics.

6. Burying their dead with ornaments.

7. Cooking utensils and the use of herbs in food.

8. Symbolic thinking

9. High-tech 'superglue'

10. A complex structure built 1 mile underground where no daylight penetrates suggests the technology and know-how to transport sustained fire as a source of light that far down.

11. Evidence of dwellings made of timber draped with animal skins

12.  Recent detailed analysis of hyoid bone (associated with the voice box) indicates they could speak, as does recent genetic evidence.  (ibid, Wieland)

"For he spoke and they were made: he commanded and they were created.” Psalm 33:9 

Either the infinite personal One God in three Persons spoke or He did not. If He did, then Jesus is God in the flesh, the Creator and Living Word (John 1: 1-5) the Light that came into the world (John 3: 1-9) who perfectly fulfills all prophecy from the antediluvian world to the post-flood world:
 
"And he said: I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Moses hid his face: for he durst not look at God."     Exodus 3:6
 
If the One God in three Persons spoke then what He revealed to Moses with respect to the miracle of creation is thesis (True Truth), making evolution antithesis (the lie).  The faith of the Christian Church and of the average Christian has had, and still has, its foundation as much in the literal and historic elements of Genesis, the book of beginnings revealed 'mouth to mouth' by the Angel to Moses, as in that of the person and deity of Jesus Christ. 

The Return of an Ancient Heresy 
 
The primary tactic employed by defiant, intellectually proud theologians eager to accommodate Scripture and the Church to modern science and pagan evolutionary thinking is predictable. It is the argument that evolution is entirely compatible with the Bible when Genesis, especially the first three chapters, is viewed in its entirety in a non-literal, non-historical context.

This is not a heresy unique to modern times. The early Church Fathers dealt with this heresy as well, counting it among the heretical tendencies of apostate Jewish Cabbalists, Origenists and Gnostic pagans such as Simon Magus. Fourth-century Fathers such as John Chrysostom, Basil the Great and Ephraim the Syrian, all of whom wrote commentaries on Genesis, specifically warned against treating Genesis as an unhistorical myth or allegory. John Chrysostom strongly warned against paying heed to these heretics,
 
“…let us stop up our hearing against them, and let us believe the Divine Scripture, and following what is written in it, let us strive to preserve in our souls sound dogmas.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 31)
 
As St. Cyril of Alexandria wrote, higher theological, spiritual meaning is founded upon humble, simple faith in the literal and historic elements of Genesis as Revealed by God and one cannot apprehend rightly the Scriptures without believing in the historical reality of the events and people they describe. (ibid, Seraphim Rose, p. 40)
 
In agreement, Vishal Mangalwadi (1949- ), founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement observes that the Revelation of God is the only available foundation for truth, freedom and faith in God's gift of reason.  But Western theologians and intellectuals have closed their minds to Revelation, hence Truth, reason and Special Creation.  Because “intelligent” Americans no longer believe in “True Truth” (Francis Schaeffer) they invent stories and use empty god words as substitutes for the infinite, personal Triune God.  Thus Gospel Truth is now 'Gospel Story' and history a series of unfolding stories such as the physical science story (Big Bang) which may or may not include the use of a god-word; the biological science story (evolutionary transformism), the climate science story (global warming or change), and the social science story (gay marriage):
 
“Doing science” increasingly means peddling politically correct dogma – that is, stories that have evolved into myths. No one really knows if there was only one Big Bang or other bigger bangs as well; whether we live in a universe or multi-verse; whether life evolved on this planet or came from outer space . . . but if you want a tenured position in a university, and if you want your research projects funded, you have to toe politically correct storyline – champion dogma."  (How Did the West's 'Rational Animal' Become Incapable of Using Reason? Mangalwadi)
 
The abandonment of God's Revelation in favor of story-telling  
 
Christendom and Protestant America did not emerge from the darkness of story-telling and god-words but arose to illustrious heights on the awe-inspiring wings of the Revelation of God, hence the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the uniquely Christian definition of man as a person because created in the spiritual image of the infinite One God in three Persons, God's unchanging Moral Law and the Biblical view of man's sinful condition. Their subsequent fall was traced by Richard Weaver in his book, "Ideas Have Consequences" (1945).

Weaver writes that 14th century Western man had made an "evil decision" to abandon his belief in the transcendent Triune God, His Revelation and unchanging universals, thus the position that "there is a source of truth higher than and independent of man..." The consequence of this ‘evil decision’ is a still unfolding catastrophe reaching fullness in our own time:
 
"The denial of everything transcending experience means inevitably...the denial of truth. With the denial of objective truth there is no escape from the relativism of 'man is the measure of all things." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, pp. 32-33)
 
The substance of 'man is the measure of all things' is idolatry.  The beginning of idolatry is pride (narcissism), which together with selfishness demonstrates preference for one's self instead of the Triune God, His Revelation (hence 'True Truth') and neighbor (and unwanted, inconvenient human life, i.e., babies).  Just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, envy/covetousness and murder are its' final results, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.  
 
The fall of the West and America is due to the idolatry of darkened souls turned by choice toward evil.  From the antediluvians to our own age, 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, "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, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...."(Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Having descended into delusion and superstition darkened souls imagined that "all that exists" is the natural dimension, meaning the universe of matter, animated powers, forces, and deterministic laws, all of which they celebrated and attributed miraculous powers to just as modern evolution worshippers do, whether secular or theological:
 
"There is an energy in the world, a spark, an electricity that everything is plugged into. The Greeks called it zoe, the mystics call it 'Spirit,' and Obi-Wan called it 'the Force'.....This energy, spark, and electricity that pulses through all of creation sustains it, fuels it, and keeps it growing. Growing, evolving, reproducing..." (Love Wins, Rob Bell, pgs. 144-145)
 
Evolutionary scientism is not observational science in search of how things really work in this world but rather a disastrous occult science tradition whose taproot stretches back to Babylon and before that the pre-flood world.   The 'Christian' teachers and defenders of this demonic heresy are guilty of leading unwitting sheep astray, possibly to their doom, and of besmirching and defaming faithful defenders of special creation as backwards, anti-science, anti-evolution destroyers of the faith.   However, in reality creationists are the defenders of thesis (True Truth) against the damnable incursion of antithesis (occultism) into the good news, the Gospel of Christ.
 
 In this light, what are vicious attacks against Special Creation as well as those against the sanctity of human life, and traditional one man one woman marriage but evil wills offended by and resentful of Higher Authority, True Truth, 'other' (unwanted, inconvenient human life) and moral restrictions and limitations?
 
"For whoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels."    Luke 9:26
 
Who are the intolerant ones, the highly offended because ashamed of our Lord and his words?  Who are the selfish, intellectually arrogant story-tellers whose embarrassing doctrine of change (evolution) is "really fitting for the chatter of frogs or jackdaws or the stupidity of fishes or the insensibility of trees"'?  

Hint:  Not Creationists or any of the faithful.

Why Children Murder their Playmates and Parents

An Ohio mom, who was stabbed by her 13-year-old daughter in the kitchen of their home, has told how her child assaulted her after the girl became obsessed with the fictional character.

I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me and she was wearing a mask, a white mask,' the mom told local news station WLWT." "The mother suffered multiple minor injuries, including a puncture wound on her back. 'She was someone else during the attack,' she said." (Mother attacked by daughter says Slender Man could be to blame, FoxNews.com, June 09, 2014)

 The allegations came to light after two Wisconsin adolescents were charged with the attempted murder of a 12-year-old as a sacrifice to the online demon. Prosecutors allege that Anissa Weier and her friend Morgan Geyster, both 12, stabbed a friend 19 times and left her to die:

"Police say the girls told detectives they wanted to murder the girl after reading tales about Slender Man on the horror website CreepyPasta."

Ideas have Consequences

In our Godless yet "scientifically enlightened" society we are surrounded by two major ideas from early childhood through the end of our lives.  First, we are not persons (spirit/soul) of worth, meaning and value because created in the spiritual image of our Father, the One God in three Persons but rather nothing more than products of evolution.   Second, as we are 'nothing' then our own life and that of everyone else has no worth, meaning, and value.

Darwinism in particular and evolutionary thinking in general has destroyed the foundations of supernatural Christianity and man's personhood (soul/spirit):

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma." (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned people have been pointing to the connections between evolutionary thinking and the spreading epidemic of narcissism, moral insanity, hatred, violence, despair, paranoia, madness, dark fantasies, psychosis and other spiritual pathologies together with the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn, the subversion and perversion of children, and the relentlessly rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use, crime, decadence, homicide and suicide in the 'evolutionized' West.

If Darwin in particular and evolutionary thinking in general is right, then man is 'nothing' and since there is no ultimate fixed meaning or higher purpose to life except what we choose:

" You are born, you suffer, you die — that's it. Perhaps, if you're lucky, you may get recycled as organic manure — but beyond that, you're just a number that happened to come up in the great casino of the universe." (Darwin, Spurgeon and the 'black dog,' Carl Wieland, Creation.com)

Wieland points out that even where Darwin is denied but other evolutionary cosmologies positing billions of years are proclaimed, as both evolutionary theism and progressive creation affirm,

".... hopelessness finds foothold. Any 'god' who condoned millions of years of death, cruelty, disease and bloodshed, certainly cannot be the personal, biblical God of love. And if the Bible got it so obviously wrong about the timing of creation as to mislead hundreds of millions of Christians until the present day, how can we really trust it about our eternal future? John 3:12 (ibid)

Evolutionary thinking as 'evolutionary fact'  has finally reached saturation point in government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, the public arena and increasingly within the whole body of the Church, which is why pathological lying, nihilism, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, mass murder, decadence, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

All of this makes a devilish kind of sense if the personal Triune God Whose Living Words called all things into existence in six days of creation does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose since the evolving universe of matter and energy either created itself from nothing or was enabled toward this end by a god-word as evolutionary theology posits. 

If man is nothing but an excited node of evolution in process of becoming with neither hope of physical resurrection nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world then why not euthanize the elderly? Why should parents not allow their children to daily absorb the violent messages within most video games, rap music, and hard rock? And why ought children brought up on such violence not brutally attack each other and their parents?  Why should sexually-perverted adults not sexually pervert children, toss unwanted babies into trash bins, and use the force of perverted, meaningless law to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others? Why not redefine sodomy, pedophilia, pederasty, bestiality and lesbianism as 'gay' and then marry 'gay' couples in Washington's National Cathedral? (Washington National Cathedral to Wed Same-Sex Couples, Ben Brumfield, CNN, Jan. 9, 2013)

If you are Obama and his Luciferian-Alinsky-minded henchmen, why not trash the Constitution, throw open the borders, divide Americans against each other, disarm Americans and enable jihadi terrorists to work their evil here?

If man is 'nothing' then why not contend — as the powerful pharmaceutical industry and its partisans within the American Psychiatric Association maintain — that dangerous psychotropic drugs are necessary for the control of America's 'epidemic' of mental illnesses caused by bad genes and chemical imbalances?  Since man is 'nothing' and  truth and moral law no longer exists why not call genetic and chemical disorders 'mental illnesses' in order to justify psychotropic substances despite that known adverse reactions associated with them include insomnia, anxiety, agitation, confusion, amnesia, depression, paranoid reaction, psychosis, hostility, delirium, hallucinations, abnormal thinking, depersonalization, lack of emotion, and mania — a dangerous and violence-prone mental derangement characterized by extreme excitement, delusion, and voices speaking into one's mind.

On the link between certain widely prescribed psychotropic drugs, suicide and homicidal violence, Dr. David Healy, a British psychiatrist and author of "Pharmageddon," said in November of 2012:

"Violence and other potentially criminal behavior caused by prescription drugs are medicines best kept secret..." (Prescription-Drug-Induced Violence Medicine's Best Kept Secret? Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 12, 2012)

Healy says this is a global issue, with medical, legal, ethical, and profound public policy dimensions:

"Never before in the fields of medicine and law have there been so many events with so much concealed data and so little focused expertise." (ibid)

One of the leading voices against the 'mental illness' known as ADHD is Dr. Fred Baughman, a pediatric neurologist. Baughman comments,

"(ADHD) is a contrived epidemic, where all 5 million to 6 million children on these drugs are normal. The country's been led to believe that all painful emotions are a mental illness and the leadership of the APA knows very well that they are representing (ADHD) as a disease when there is no scientific data to confirm any mental illness." ("Drugging Them Up," Ch. 2, IndoctriNation, p. 47)

Dr. Peter Breggin, psychiatrist and author of 'Talking Back to Prozac" concurs. Not only does ADHD not exist but,

"...there is great deal of evidence that stimulants cause brain damage with long term use." (ibid, p. 47)

Dr. Bruce Shortt agrees and observes that the prescribing of behavior modifying substances is probably the largest,

"...uncontrolled drug experiment in the history of the world....drugs are being given to children...especially little boys." (ibid, p. 41)

Shortt adds that Ritalin, Adderall, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil and other psychotropic drugs are,

"...being used to drug schoolchildren at rates that are difficult to comprehend...The Drug Enforcement Administration has estimated that 8 million children and adults were on Ritalin in 2000. Prescriptions for Ritalin increased by 700 percent from 1990 to 2001." (ibid, p. 42)

But if humans are 'nothing' then why not use them for drug experiments, especially as it is so profitable? And if you happen to be among the West's financial criminal elite then why not plunder the wealth and resources of unsuspecting Western and American tax-slave 'products of evolution' while offering them socialism, drugs, poverty, misery and Darwinism in return?

In an impeccably researched essay, "Ascendancy of a Financial Criminal Elite," Prof. James Petras details the rise of a criminal consortium which he describes as the super wealthy of America and Europe:

.....the super-wealthy and their families have as much as $32 trillion (USD) of hidden assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenue! This study excluded such non-financial assets as real estate, precious metals, jewels, yachts, race horses, luxury vehicles and so on. Of the $32 trillion in hidden assets, $23 trillion is held by the super-rich of North America and Europe." (Globalresearch.ca/the-ascendancy-of-a-criminal-financial-elite)

The super wealthy are mainly global corporatists and bankers:

"England's leading banks, including Barclay's and a host of others, have been identified as having rigged the LIBOR, or inter-bank lending rate, for years in order to maximize profits. The Bank of New York, JP Morgan, HSBC, Wachovia and Citibank are among scores of banks, which have been charged with laundering drug money and other illicit funds according to investigations from the US Senate Banking Committees. Multi-national corporations receive federal bailout funds and tax exemptions and then, in violation of publicized agreements with the government, relocate plants and jobs in Asia and Mexico." (ibid)

If the living Triune God does not exist and man does not have to account to Him for his actions here in this world then why not, as Donald Kaul suggests, repeal the Second Amendment and declare the NRA,

".... a terrorist organization and make membership illegal.... (I would also raze the organization's headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that's optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that "prying the guns from their cold, dead hands" thing works for me."(Des Moines Register publishes gun-ban column advocating deadly violence against NRA, GOP leaders, Tim Graham, foxnews.com, Jan. 2, 2013)

Tim Graham points out that the so-called "news" media,

"...love to blame conservatives for the declining civility of our democratic discourse, but the hateful venom spewed by supposedly enlightened liberals like Kaul is as vicious as it gets. Publishing death threats is bad enough, but doing so in the name of promoting a more peaceful, compassionate society is beyond sick. But this clown will probably never realize the absurdity of his argument." (ibid)

But why not blame Conservatives and use deadly force against the NRA? Since man is 'nothing' and has no one to fear in this world or the other for what he does in this world then why not,

"...tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control." (ibid)

Dubbing himself the 'antichrist,' it was the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche who saw that the death of the Christian God had already begun to cast its first dark shadows over Europe, and though,

"the event itself is far too great, too remote, too much beyond most people's power of apprehension, for one to suppose that so much as the report of it could have reached them," still its advent was certain, and it was men like Nietzsche, the 'new' Christ who were "the firstlings and premature children of the coming century," the century of the "triumph of Nihilism." (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 44)

Nietzsche was the first apostate Christian to gaze fully upon man's loss of faith and its terrifying consequences. With no living God 'up there' to obstruct his vision, the nihilism (nothingness) he saw was agonizing. As there was no longer any Light from God above, there was only darkness in the hermetically sealed world below. The paralyzing darkness that overtook the mind of the antichrist was spiritual. It was not so much,

"....an exterior phenomenon crowding inward but rather an inner blinding that spread outward." (Ravi Zacharias, p. 27)

This was precisely Nietzsche's point. With the death of the Christian God of Revelation the darkness of objective meaninglessness would penetrate every avenue of thought and life, making life itself unbearable with the consequence of hedonism, abortion, euthanasia, sodomy, suicide, drugs, crime and murder becoming virtues.

Speaking through the writings of the Nietzsche, his spirit guide--the evil spirit Zarathustra---said that because God had died in the 19th century there would follow two terrible consequences beginning in the 20th century. (Romans 1:18)

First, the 20th century would become one of the most evil century's in history, and second, a universal madness (Romans 1:21, 22) would break out and turn the once glorious W. Europe and America upside-down.

With respect to the 20th century, in the wake of the insurrection against the living, personal God of Revelation that began during the Renaissance eventuating in the proclamation of the death of God and cataclysmic eruptions of fire, brimstone and rivers of blood during the 20th century, ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn said the world had never before known,

"...godlessness as organized, militarized, and tenaciously malevolent as that practiced by Marxism. Within the philosophical system of Marx and Lenin, and at the heart of their psychology, hatred of God is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions. Militant atheism is not merely incidental or marginal to Communist policy; it is not a side effect, but the central pivot." (goodreads.com)

In his analysis of Marxist Communism and its' alter ego, scientific materialism, Frank Meyers, an early conservative intellectual concluded that Communism is the state form,

"....taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world." Godless Communism is the "final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries." It is materialist scientism of which, "Communism is the culminating hubris of the Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation. It is scientism gone political." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, pp. 251-252)

In respect of the universal madness foretold by Zarathustra, though apostates and the apostatizing professed themselves wise, their cognitive thought processes would become darkened (vain) and with their conscience dead to sin they would become fools, meaning they would accept and publicly profess incredibly stupid conceptions of themselves (i.e., man is an evolved worm, ape or robot; man is evolving into god).

"And I will give children to be their princes, and the effeminate shall rule over them." Isaiah 3:4

In turning away from the Spirit of God and the truth He has given, children will murder their classmates and parents.  'Wise' males will become effeminate cowards and females mannish. They will be adolescent emotional-tyrants in adult-size bodies: sinister, greedy, spiteful, vindictive, treacherous, back-stabbing sophists. They will celebrate Lucifer (the devil) and in their madness actively seek the way of Luciferian initiation because they will be spiritually blind in regard to total reality. Like demons they will flee from the cross of Jesus but exalt the devil as the first free thinker, the genetic creator of man, the seething energy and angel of evolution. Truth will be lies, evil will be good, unfaithfulness will be faith and the 'wise' will preach and blaspheme from pulpits, exercise political power, enact legislation, and wield broken law to plunder, punish, and ruin.

Zarathustra has been right on both counts. First, apostatizing W. Europe and America, though dotted here and there by small islands of Light, decency and sanity, are today abominations of desolation---darkened, satanically inverted places ruled by the 'wise,' hence boiling over with madness, particularly Hollywood, academia, mainstream media and the highest, most powerful political offices in the land. Second, Nietzsche was made to show the 'wise' what is in store for them by spending the last eleven years of his life insane.
