Dan. 5:25---The Writing is on the Wall of the American Sexual Dystopia

"The handwriting is on the wall. You need only reflect on how a screaming mob managed to conjure up total surrender from Indiana Gov. Mike Pence so he would reject that state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Catholic Charities is closing its adoption services where same-sex marriage laws pressure them to reject their church’s teachings about marriage and family. Owners of businesses that serve the wedding industry are being forced to either scrap their consciences or shut their doors. Anti-discrimination lawsuits against churches that don’t perform same-sex marriages will undoubtedly increase."  (Stella Morabito, "15 Reasons 'Marriage Equality' is About Neither Marriage Nor Equality")

The writing on the wall is both the Judgment of God and the work of more than 70 years.  It was then that powerful God-hating utopian forces began working to transform America from one nation under God into a Never-Never land of emotion-driven, emasculated male and masculinized female bots fueled by destructive impulses. A very similar transformation happened in Germany immediately prior to the Nazis taking over that country and in Russia prior to its takeover by Communists. 

The first demands for normalization of lesbianism, pedophilia, pederasty, sodomy, transgender, same-sex marriage, sex reassignment surgery, and the right to cross-dress were not made in "scientifically enlightened" post-Christian America but in Communist controlled Russia, as revealed in the article, "1920s Soviet Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals." It was also reported that masculinized, cross-dressing lesbians were rewarded with influential positions of authority and influence throughout academia, the Red Army, and in the cultural arena:  
 
"...women of the masculinized type (cross-dressing army commanders, for instance) were considered with fascination and indulgence." (workers.org) 
 
The same article bashes backward Christian-Judeo America for not allowing the mainstreaming of gender-bending and perversion:
 
"That same year (1923) in the U.S., where anti-sodomy laws aimed to padlock closet doors, the FBI labeled anarchist Emma Goldman the most dangerous woman in America because of her vocal support for gay rights and other forms of social equality."

According to a pamphlet entitled "The Sexual Revolution in Russia," Soviet sexologists in the 1920s participated in the international movement for sexual reform that today is spearheaded by President Obama, the State Department and many other federal departments:
 
" Soviet legislation bases itself on the following principle: it declares the absolute non-interference of the State and society into sexual matters as long as nobody is injured, and no ones interests are encroached upon. Concerning homosexuality, sodomy, and various other forms of sexual gratification, which are set down in European legislation as offenses against public morality---Soviet legislation treats these the same as so-called natural intercourse." (Soviet Union in the 1920s: Scientific, not Utopian, workers.org)

The Communist fantasy of a Godless, morals free utopia, populated by the androgynous New Man collapsed into a hellish nightmare. It was a scene straight out of Bedlam: while at least sixty-million men, women and children were being tortured and murdered, hordes of conscienceless children of the Mother-Father State were visiting havoc and crime upon cities and towns even as an epidemic of lying, lawlessness, sex slavery, prostitution, bathroom culture and other forms of gross debauchery issuing in outright chaos over-spread Russia.
 
After years of revolution and famine the economy was severely damaged, and with the death of the family--the building block of society---both economy and culture collapsed. Too late, fantasy-believing Communist planners realized that without the family, there is no future. 
 
As the full-force of utopian madness fell upon Russia, revulsion and horror set in allowing a semblance of sanity to return, thus in a desperate attempt to revive the family, attempts were made to rein in easy divorce, abortion on demand and sexual debauchery. Divorce and abortion were made more difficult to acquire and by 1923, the homosexual right to harass straight men for sex became a crime. Then in 1927, the right to engage in sodomy was criminalized as was the right to keep bachi--cross-dressed, feminized boy dancers used as prostitutes. The death knell rang in 1934 when both homosexuality and prostitution were declared crimes punishable by up to 8 years in prison. (Women in the Soviet Union, Jen Pickard, Youth for International Socialism) 
 
The Soviet Unions birth-to-death rate continued to fall however, so by the 1980's Gorbachev attempted yet more reforms. In a desperate bid to undo dysfunctional gender-bending and restore natural male-female relations in hope of bringing the family back to life, a course entitled, "The Ethics and Psychology of Family Life" was introduced into schools and shown on television. Its objective was to reinforce traditional roles. Teachers were urged to "train and train again, girls to be girls and boys to be boys."(ibid) 

Shortly after President Reagan made his now famous 'evil empire' speech March 8, 1983, the Soviet Union imploded. Despite all reform efforts, Russia's birth-to-death replacement rate continued to fall. Confronted by the chilling prospect of a "dead" Russia, in a last ditch effort Vladimir Putin adopted a pro-birth policy that pays families to have at least a second child if not more. Additionally, stay-at-home mothers receive 40% of their former salary and families with two children will receive a lump sum of $9000.

At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a “godless nation.”  More than two decades on, history has come full circle, as the Kremlin and its allies in the Russian Orthodox Church hurl the same allegation at the West.   In a recent keynote speech Russian President Vladimir Putin said:

Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values...Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.”  (Divine Freedom Radio, Feb. 21, 2014)

In his state of the nation address in mid-December, Mr. Putin also portrayed Russia as a staunch defender of “traditional values” against what he depicted as the morally bankrupt West. Social and religious conservatism, the former KGB officer insisted, is the only way to prevent the world from slipping into “chaotic darkness.” As part of this defense of “Christian values,” Russia has adopted a law banning “homosexual propaganda” and another that makes it a criminal offense to “insult” the religious sensibilities of believers.

Mr. Putin’s views of the West were echoed by Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, the leader of the Orthodox Church who accused Western countries of engaging in the “spiritual disarmament” of their people. In particular, Patriarch Kirill criticized laws in several European countries that prevent believers from displaying religious symbols, including crosses on necklaces, at work:

The general political direction of the [Western political] elite bears, without doubt, an anti-Christian and anti-religious character...We have been through an epoch of atheism, and we know what it is to live without God...” “We want to shout to the whole world, ‘Stop!’”  “The separation of the secular and the religious is a fatal mistake by the West.... It is a monstrous phenomenon that has occurred only in Western civilization and will kill the West, both politically and morally.” (ibid)
 
Even as a dying Russia strives mightily to restore and protect the institutions of traditional marriage and family so that it might live, America---under pressure from obviously insane, godless Progressive utopianists---is steadfastly killing these vital life-giving institutions while simultaneously waging a war of attrition against their source: the Holy Triune God, the Bible and orthodox Christianity. In the name of scientism, Darwinism, progress, change, tolerance, inclusion, diversity, and orientation, America is casting herself into the very grave from which Russia seeks escape, hence the writing on the wall. (Dan. 5:25)

Though this looks to be the end of the America we have known and loved it is not the end of the story.  Whether we are in the next to the last chapter or the final chapter the heaven bound have the blessed assurance of already knowing how the story ends, meaning that for the heaven bound this veil of tears is the closest they will ever come to hell.  But for the hell bound (Psalm 5: 9-10) the story ends differently.   In this world their choices reside in their own ever-unfolding menu of privileges which they call 'rights,' their own politically correct version of the Golden Rule and of what constitutes good, such as their 'choice' to deny life to the inconvenient, to practice their own pansexual 'love,' and to live parasitic lives at the expense of the productive. As they are not fallen but morally-perfect and autonomous they travel their own sovereign roads and expect the God of Revelation and everyone else to accept and tolerate them — to put up and shut up. This being the case, they resent the living God and blame Him for not accepting them just as they are, for not jumping through hoops for them, for not seeing things their way.  Therefore the Lord has given them what they want, meaning one life-time in this rapidly decaying world.  Thus this veil of tears is the closest thing to heaven they will ever experience.

Hellish Beings, NDEs and UFO Encounters: The Spirit World Moving Closer to Our Own

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Who are Semjaza (Shemihazah) and  Ashtar?

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

According to Dr. Michael Heiser, ANE Scholar, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University, Semjaza and Ashtar are fallen, wicked Watchers, serpentine Seraphim,

"There are "good" serpentine beings (seraphim) who guard God's throne (so Isaiah 6's seraphim), and there are fallen, wicked serpentine beings (seraphim) who rebelled against the Most High at various times, and who became the pagan gods of the other nations."   (Michael Heiser, "Serpentine/Reptillian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

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

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

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

The Spirit World Moving Closer

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 "...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)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why Post-Christian America has Surrendered to the Transgender Beings of Sodom

Based on an analysis of the foundational presuppositions of Mormon theology, this writer predicted in a 2013 essay entitled, "Why Mormonism will Surrender to Homosexuality," the capitulation of the Mormon church and by extension the Boy Scouts to inclusion of practicing homosexuals.   Now post-Christian America has surrendered to the men and women of Sodom as well.  The reason for both Mormon and American surrender lies in one of the many crucial differences between Mormon theology and Biblical: the rejection of the Genesis account of supernatural creation ex nihilo in favor of a naturalistic account.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Mormon god, like the deistic god of progressive creationism and the immanent divine force of evolutionary theism and New Age is a god within creation (nature). 

 In the "Pagan Temptation," Christian scholar Thomas Molnar reports that the idea that matter is eternal is a pattern of thought stretching back to the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greeks in the West and in the East to the Upanishads.  In this way of thinking, everything somehow mechanically emerged, evolved, or progressed out of either eternally existing matter as the ancients and Joseph Smith taught, or in contemporary terms from out of matter spontaneously-generated by an exploding Cosmic Egg (Big Bang).

From the Babylonians forward, primordial matter has gone by many names. For example: divine One Substance, watery abyss, chaos, void, Omega, Quantum Void.

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

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

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

 This is naturalism, which is the belief – taught by Joseph Smith, progressive creationism, evolutionary theism, evolutionary Christianity, quantum spirituality, New Age and transhumanism – that there is neither living supernatural Holy God nor heavenly realm outside of the space-time dimension. There is only the man-centered natural dimension.

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

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

In his book, "The God of Sex: How Spirituality Defines Your Sexuality," Dr. Peter Jones writes that pagan monism,

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

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

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

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

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

Just since the Supreme Court redefined marriage so as to accommodate homosexuals (two-in-ones) the use of babies and children for the sexual satisfaction of adults looms large:

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

Naturalism's Unresolvable Problem: Origin of Life

"Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me." John 14:

The unresolvable problem for all nature systems, and this includes Mormonism and modern evolutionary cosmogonies, is the ultimate origin of life and conscious life. This is why contemporary naturalists such as SETI researcher Paul Davies and Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the DNA molecule, have rejected abiogenesis, the idea that matter spontaneously generated itself from nothing, in favor of panspermia.

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

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

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

Creation Ex Nihilo, the Incarnation: Repugnant to Nature Sages

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

The revolutionary impact of the Christian teaching about creation ex nihilo and the Incarnation was nothing less than a scandal for ancient pagan sages just as it is for 'new' pagan evolutionary naturalists, whether "Christian," New Age or secular as well as for both pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnostic's and Mormon prophet Joseph Smith.

Molnar writes that it is inconceivable to nature sages that God,

"...the spiritual being par excellence, should assume materiality – a thought as distasteful to their contemporaries as the idea of creation ex nihilo, which meant that matter too was God's creation..." (pp. 26-27) rather than pre-existent or  spontaneously generated.

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

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

Putting all of this together, all ancient and modern nature systems and their evolutionary cosmogonies cannot account for either the ultimate origin of life, personhood, or the soul of man:

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

Nor can they ultimately account for the two created sexes, male and female, since all life somehow emerged out of genderless physical or spiritualized matter. Thus like their ancient counterparts, all modern nature systems, so-called Christian and otherwise, are fated to give way before the demands of gender-neutral homosexuality (androgyny).

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

Like their "enlightened" modern counterparts, ancient nature philosophers and high priests had exchanged the truth about God for a lie (Romans 1:25-27). Writing in agreement, early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and a haughty spirit preceded man's fall into depravity, idolatry and nature worship. A haughty spirit led them to disregard the higher things of the Holy God and seek in preference lower things here in the natural dimension.

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

Ideas have consequences. For Mormonism – as with evolutionary Christianity, its secular derivatives and occult 'green' pantheist New Age spirituality – the predisposing corruption resides in foundational ideations. Thus in the rejection of the supernatural Triune God of Revelation together with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo resides the inability to account for the origin of life, of man's soul/spirit (reason, will, conscience), immutable truth, moral absolutes, fixed meaning, and purpose (Psalm 115:4-8). And with the rejection of the Incarnation (the historical Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity), comes the inability to logically account for and defend the two sexes. Thus the fate of Mormonism together with evolutionary Christianity, trans-humanism and occult pantheism is to not only fall into moral relativism (subjectivism), depravity, superstition and idolatry but to give way to the demands of unrestrained libido – including the use of children for the sexual gratification of adults. And these are the crimes against nature said Augustine,

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

Darwinism: Ancient Epicurean Paganism Revamped and Revised for Our Age of Science

"(The UN is) a weird and diabolical convergence of New Age mysticism, pantheism, aboriginal animism, Communism, socialism, Luciferian occultism, apostate Christianity, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism." (The New World Religion: Teaching God's Children to Worship 'Divine Nature.' William Jasper, 2002)

The New World Religion, of which the U.N., Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Publishing), United Religions Initiative, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding and Baca Grande (Colorado based New Age Vatican City) are integral components, intends the complete overturning of Biblical moral and spiritual values enjoyed by Western and American civilization for over a thousand years. As part of this goal, the Bible must be reinterpreted in terms of evolutionary occult pantheism (monism), man must be fundamentally remade by eradication of every vestige of Imago Dei from his inner being, and Christian leadership reduced to a non-factor.

In a recent lecture, “Paganism in Today’s Culture,” Dr. Peter Jones, director of truthXchange and Adjunct professor of Westminster Seminary explains that because pagan and pantheist monism erases all boundaries its' gender ideal is androgyny rather than male and female.  As monism cloaked in revolutionary political ideologies, deep ecology, and evolutionary and global change science has replaced America's Biblical presuppositions, social boundaries set by nature no longer exist for this generation:

The Millennial Generation is the first generation of the modern era to receive a fully-developed neo-pagan cosmology masquerading as the correct, progressive view of history and demanding to be inscribed in public policy."

While it is true today that large segments of American culture have converted to religious paganism and mystical pantheism, it is Gnostic secular humanisms' (pagan materialism) “scientistic cosmology” (Darwinism + materialism) that set the stage as long ago as 1850.     As a result, throughout the contemporary West and America the most powerful fortress of mind suppressing truth and dominating, ruling and manipulating our once Christian society can be summarized in one word: Darwinism--- the utterly futile, entirely bankrupt national religion of nihilism and deconstruction. 
 
Darwinism bristles with hostility toward and hatred of the living Holy God, creation ex nihilo, and faithful orthodox Christianity.  This abomination from hell is the foundational and all-controlling fortress  dominating all of modern Western and American thought and culture. It is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum. It influences biological and earth sciences, psychology, anthropology, sociology, economics, law, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines. And for over one-hundred years it has been moving into and subsequently polluting the Church over and across the entire denominational spectrum.
 
At the upper-most layer of this abomination is a man-centered universe entirely stripped of the Holy God, His order of being, souls, spirits, heaven, hell and sin.  The universe of man is set in continuous motion by evolution---the universal life-force.   At a lower level is the ancient Epicurean notion that physical matter in motion within the Void (monism) is the ultimate reality. (Acts 17:18-19)

The principle tenet of the Epicureans held that the world was not made by any deity, or with any design, but came into its being and form, through a fortuitous concourse of physical atoms of various sizes and magnitude that cemented together and so formed the world.

The world and everything in it--life, being, mind--were not created by the Lord but were instead the accidental emergent products of a great cosmic event (Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) that spontaneously generated animated physical matter from nothing. This way of thinking excludes everything unseen, such as the human soul and mind, and holds that humans are aggregates of physical matter in motion in a human form and the human mind an active principle of grey matter.

This ancient pagan way of thinking forms the basis of the materialist psychology of Sigmund Freud, Darwin's evolutionary conception, modern evolutionary biology, secular humanism, secular trans-humanism and Marxist dialectical materialism.

Modern materialism originated in the metaphysics of the ancient Ionians and Stoics during the sixth century BC.  However, it was the Atomists (Leucippus/Democritus, 460-357 BC; Epicurus, 342-270 BC; and Lucretius, 96-55 BC) who methodically developed materialism.

On the basis of these revamped and revised pagan superstitions and presuppositions evolutionary naturalists claim that not only is the living God Who exists outside of this world imaginary, but so too are higher unchanging truths, first principles, metaphysics, absolute moral laws, purpose and meaning.

By its very nature evolution promotes subjectivism (moral relativism) through implied change and negation of higher eternally permanent truths, moral laws, stability and certainty demanded in the Biblical outlook. Instead, by setting all things in motion it necessitates a relentless, random process over time leading to fundamental and destructive changes to Western and American culture, morality, law, national sovereignty, the family, tradition, and even to the definition of man. No longer are there two sexes, male and female but now there are multiple and ever-evolving ‘gender expressions.’
 
As a fortress of nihilism, deconstruction and inversion, when applied to the Bible, Darwinism completely inverts the Genesis account thereby rendering meaningless the entirety of Scripture. In utter contempt of God’s creation, it teaches that man is neither created in the spiritual image of God nor the apex of creation but is rather a hominid of evolution.
 
Evolutionary thinking said Frank Baumer, has inverted reality. It has,
 
“….persuaded people to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation.” The sweeping acceptance of evolutionary thinking means that it is “now difficult if not impossible for an educated man to conceive of a primitive revelation such as traditional Christianity taught, or even of an original natural religion from which men had declined.” This difficulty arises because “in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future.” (Religion and Rise of Skepticism, p. 147)

 Darwinism and/or evolutionary thinking disguises its' hatred of the Holy God, creation ex nihilo (special creation) orthodox Christianity, immutable Truth and Moral Law by deceptively cloaking its’ true nature in the dress of empirical science.   D. M. S. Watson, the Jodrell Professor of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy at University College, London (1921 to 1951) tacitly concurs. He publicly confessed that evolution,
 
“. . . is accepted by zoologists not because it has been observed to occur or . . . can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible.” (December 10, 2011 by Vishal Mangalwadi, revelationmovement.com)

"An age of science is necessarily an age of materialism," declared Hugh Elliot early last century, "Ours is a scientific age, and it may be said with truth that we are all materialists now."  (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, xiv)
 
Darwinism and the Epicurean proposition that all that exists is matter in motion within the Void (monism) are the first principles of the naturalistic worldview proffered by atheists such as Richard Dawkins and all other evolutionary materialists. 
 
Ancient pagan metaphysics revamped for our age of evolution and scientism worship have replaced the living God and His Revealed Word—the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo in particular— as the great explanation of the origin and subsequent existence of life in all of its forms, thus evolutionary naturalists are not merely dependent upon their pagan metaphysics program for their worldview but their worldview amounts to scientism – the belief that modernized pagan presuppositions postured as naturalistic evolutionary science are the great unifying answer to the ultimate questions of human life.
 
In his review of “Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny,” by Robert Wright, Schwartz Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation, John Judis makes clear that Darwinism is in fact a metaphysical evolutionary cosmology explaining,
 
“….how we came to be, and where we are headed… We—the sorry mass of humanity—have made history, but we have often proceeded blindly and without the least understanding of the great project in which we are engaged. Wright should be content that he has described, better than anyone in recent days, the nature and scope of that endeavor.” (John Judis, The Washington Monthly, April, 2000)
 
In his profoundly insightful essay, “Why Christianity Lost America?” Vishal Mangalwadi, author of “The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization,” convincingly argues that,
 
Christianity lost America because 20th-century evangelicalism branded itself as the party of faith. Secularism (science, evolution, university, media) became the party of truth. This is one reason why 70% Christian youth give up meaningful involvement with the church when they grow up.” (December 10, 2011 by Vishal Mangalwadi, revelationmovement.com)
 
In other words, Christians have bought into the lie that defines secularism’s pagan metaphysical cosmology as “factual” empirical science. Thus if evolution and pagan presuppositions are true then the Genesis account is not true, so why bother with Christian theism if it has been scientifically invalidated?

The Principle Enemies of the Revealed Word

In our own time, the antithesis of the Revealed Word remains substantially unchanged from what it was in Paul's time:

"Paul was reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles, and in the market place every day with those who happened to be present. And also some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were conversing with him. Some were saying, "What would this idle babbler wish to say?" Others, "He seems to be a proclaimer of strange deities,"-- because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection. And they took him and brought him to the Areopagus, saying, "May we know what this new teaching is which you are proclaiming?… "(Acts 17:18-19)

The Stoics and Epicureans were the two most prominent schools of nature philosophy/nature science/nature religion of that time. Theirs was an atheistic scientific worldview predicated upon a one-dimensional universe of animated (evolving) physical matter or psychic  energy (spiritualized matter). They were the physicists of their age.

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)  

Atomism: Ancient and Modern

"An age of science is necessarily an age of materialism," declared Hugh Elliot early last century, "Ours is a scientific age, and it may be said with truth that we are all materialists now."  (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, xiv)

The principle tenet of the Epicureans held that the world was not made by any deity, or with any design, but came into its being and form, through a fortuitous concourse of physical atoms of various sizes and magnitude that cemented together and so formed the world.

The world and everything in it--life, being, mind--were not created by the Lord but rather the accidental emergent products of a great cosmic event (Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) that spontaneously generated animated physical matter from nothing. This way of thinking excludes everything unseen, such as the human soul and mind, and holds that humans are aggregates of physical matter in motion in a human form and the human mind an active principle of grey matter.

This way of thinking forms the basis of the materialist psychology of Sigmund Freud, Darwin's evolutionary conception, modern evolutionary biology, secular humanism, secular trans-humanism and dialectical materialism.

Modern materialism originated in the metaphysics of the ancient Ionians and Stoics during the sixth century BC.  However, it was the Atomists (Leucippus/Democritus, 460-357 BC; Epicurus, 342-270 BC; and Lucretius, 96-55 BC) who methodically developed materialism.

Modern materialists such as Julien de la Mettrie (1709-51), Paul Henri Thiery, and Baron D'Holbach (1723-89) all agreed that the mind is the property of physical matter and man nothing but a bio-machine.  La Mettrie speculated that machine-mans rational life is entirely determined by physical causes that run the gamut from raw meat, to climate, blood circulation, and gender.  Genetic inheritance, said la Mettrie, causes machine-man to commit crime.  This view casts parents into the role of "first cause" and would later manifest itself in the belief that State ‘experts,'  or Hillary's "village" experts should have control of children.  (Darwin Day in America, John G. West pp. 16-18)

Pierre Simon Laplace (1749-1827) viewed scientific materialism as not only the pursuit of God-like omniscience but of the Holy Grail itself---power to create a New Man.   If an intelligence could grasp "at a given instant...all the forces by which nature is animated" proclaimed Laplace, it could devise a mathematical formula that would predict everything that would ever happen, and "nothing would be uncertain, and the future, like the past, would be open to its eyes."  Scientists should reduce everything in the universe to mechanical laws that could be expressed in terms of mathematics, advised Laplace, for the promise of such knowledge was incredible power...even over life and mind itself.  (ibid, p. 20)

Herbert Spencer, Fechner, Lotze, Wundt, and pantheist Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the fraudulent scientism dictum---ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny---all agreed that life and mind are properties of physical matter.  Haeckel moreover imagined ether to be the primitive life-making substance which, as was the case with the primitive fire of the Stoics, changed one part of itself into inert mass while the other part became the active principle, spirit.  Today, many scientists routinely resort to Haeckel's postulate without ever inquiring into its pantheist implications.

Haeckel would later write, "Pantheism teaches that God and the world are one...pantheism is...an advanced conception of nature (and) a polite form of atheism."  The truth of pantheism, confessed Haeckel, "lies in its destruction of the dualist antithesis of God..."  The godless world system being constructed, said Haeckel, "substantially agrees with the monism or pantheism of the modern scientist."  (Monism, Ernst Haeckel, www.pantheist.net/)

During the century to follow, Charles Darwin (1809-82)  helped spread materialism to the masses.   As Stephen Jay Gould argues, "Darwin applied a consistent philosophy of materialism to his interpretation of nature, "and "the ground of all existence; mind, spirit, and God (are reduced to) neural complexity." (Darwin Day in America, p. 41)

According to Darwin, deified natural selection and the laws of heredity acting on matter produced mind, morality, and civilization.  By describing how deified natural mechanisms caused the complexity of life to emerge from deified matter, Darwin helped transform materialism from a fantastically bizarre tale told by power-mad Prometheans on the fringe of society to a hallowed scientism principle enshrined and worshipped by modern scientism and ‘enlightened' Westerners.

It was during this time that Social Darwinism, Progressivism, Socialism, Communism, Nazism, and Secular Humanism were developed out of metaphysical materialism.  Classical Liberalism on the other hand, was subverted and corrupted by the materialist faith into what is now known as modern Liberalism.  Of these, Communism (Marx and Engel's dialectical materialism), is considered to be the most highly developed philosophy of materialism.  It rests on three fundamental metaphysical presuppositions:

1. Deified Matter: The Ultimate Substance which, though non-living, non-intelligent, and non-conscious, nevertheless somehow possesses the emergent properties of life, mind, consciousness, and soul.

2. Evolution: Since Marxist dialectic requires a theory with clashes (thesis and antithesis) and leaps (synthesis), Marxists have all but abandoned Darwinism and instead have embraced punctuated equilibrium. "Many people confound dialectic with the theory of evolution," noted G. Plekhanov. "Dialectic is, in fact, a theory of evolution. But it differs profoundly from the vulgar (Darwinian) theory of evolution." (Fundamental Problems of Marxism, 1929, p. 145)

3. Spontaneous Generation: An offshoot of specifically Darwinian thought accepted unreservedly by Marxists as their dialectic requires a strictly materialist explanation for the origin of life from dead matter. In the words of M.A. Leonov: "Marxist philosophical materialism remains beyond all doubt that at some time or other in the remote past, life must have arisen from non-living matter." (Outline of Dialectical Materialism, 1948, p. 494)

In a modified version of the Stoic conception of the earth as a living organism possessed of its own soul, quasi-pantheist dialectical materialism declares that earth is "one entire organism...its organs the various races and nations of men."  Not only is the earth alive and evolving upward on evolution's magical escalator, but so too are history and society, for they also are living entities in a continuous state of motion.  And man?  In a modified conception of Atomism's  dehumanizing view of man, dialectical materialism states that man is nothing but "a colonial aggregation of cells," and to "consider him an individual would be an error."  Man---the aggregate of cells--- is nothing but an extension of society, history, and earth.  (Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics, Chapter II: The Constitution of Man as a Political Organism)

Stoic Pantheism: Ancient and Modern

The Stoics were a celebrated school of severe and lofty pantheists. Their main principle was that the universe of divine psychic energy was under the law of an iron necessity (determinism in Darwinian creeds and karma in Eastern creeds), the spirit of which was what they called the Deity or World Soul.  In this view, which has much in common with Eastern mystical pantheism, reality is not the physical world but rather the spiritual, or World Soul, while the human self is deity in the same way that "All is truly Brahman" (swamij.com) and ayam atma brahman, "The Self is Brahman" (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5)  

Stoic and Epicurean sages received their ideas from ancient Chaldeans, Egyptians and Hindus, whose one-dimensional, evolutionary nature systems extended back centuries before Greek and Roman civilization.  For example, one Hindu belief was that Brahman (the Void, World Soul, Abyss, Nu) spontaneously generated itself as something like a seed or singularity about 4.3 billion years ago and then evolved under its' own power by which it expanded and formed all that exists: 

"These Hindus believed in an eternal Universe that had cycles of rebirth, destruction and dormancy, known as 'kalpas,' rather like oscillating big bang theories.  We also read in the Hindu Bhagavad Gita that the god Krishna says, 'I am the source from which all creatures evolve."  (Evolution: An Ancient Pagan Idea, Paul James Griffith, creation.com)

Modernized Stoic pantheism and its Eastern occult counterpart forms the basis of Carl Jung's psychology, Wicca, occult New Age spirituality, Luciferian Theosophy, spiritual trans-humanism, Teilhard's Omega, Leonard Sweet's Quantum Spirituality, and modern quantum physics to name but a few permutations.

In “The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition,” James Herrick writes that modern physicists claim to have irrefutable scientific proof for the foundational premises of pantheist 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 a breathtaking range of practical implications in the fundamental physics,

“… that underlies all else that is in the universe” lending itself to a holistic understanding that “the nature of the mind, the nature of society, and the nature of nature are all one and the same thing…linked by a common physics.” (ibid, p. 170-171)

According to Zohar and Marshall, the fundamental physics (animated matter and psychic energy) underlying all else in the universe consist  of two sorts of particles, bosons and fermions.  Fermions are physical matter and bosons are spiritualized matter---the fundamental spiritual/mental forces that not only bind the universe together but are implicated in the evolutionary origins of the human soul and the emergence of both biological life on earth and of the universe itself.

The two men 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 ultimate discovery of quantum physics is trumpeted as scientific proof of the basic correctness of  pantheist theology---matter, collectively speaking, is the divine one substance (i.e., World Soul, Brahman, Omega).

The men call their divine one substance the quantum vacuum.  Their quantum vacuum is strikingly similar to some Hindu and Buddhist accounts of the origins of everything that exists as emanations from the One Substance 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)

From Babylon to our own age, the Void has been viewed as 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 aspects or 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.

This means that 'god' is within the human mind.  Reality is therefore within human consciousness because man is an aspect of the divine 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)

Because the divine substance is within human consciousness then we can plug into it, said Emergent Church leader Rob Bell.  According to Bell, the animated divine substance is,

"…. 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, pp. 144-145)

Two Dimensions versus One Dimension

Ancient and modern naturalism (paganism/pantheism) is in every way the antithesis of God's Revelation and Christianity, the spiritual and moral foundation of Western civilization. For fifteen hundred years, Christendom and then later Protestant America had affirmed the biblical view of total reality. In this historically unique view total reality consists of two interfacing, interactive halves: the seen (natural) and the unseen (supernatural).

In opposition to the one-dimensional view of reality posited by the principle enemies of the Revealed Word,  Paul teaches a two-dimensional view.  According to this view, man faces both unseen and seen dimensions and interprets truth against these two interfacing halves of reality. Thus Paul declares that as men live out their lives they are spectacles, "unto the world, and to angels and men." (1 Cor. 4:9)

 Thus the earth (the seen) is really a theater and men are actors on its stage observed not only by other men (the seen) but by the Spirit of God and angels (the unseen).

Though men cannot see the Spirit of God and very rarely see angels they can see, hear and interact with men. The Spirit of God opens our eyes to understanding (Ps. 118: 34, 125, 144), tests our hearts, knows out secrets, motives, and thoughts (Psa. 17:3; 44:21; 139:1-4).

Both holy and unholy angels are all around us, watching, listening, helping and protecting if holy, if unholy then binding the disobedient to their power. Just as the Lord of Hosts gives His Holy Spirit to those who love and obey Him, He can send evil spirits upon those who are rebellious, live in persistent sin, practice occult arts or men who in their pride, covetousness and envy reject and hate Him as was the case with Karl Marx and Nietzsche, the apostate Christian philosopher who proclaimed the death of God. Unto these men the Lord of Hosts sent evil spirits just as He sent one to King Saul (1 Sam. 16:14). The evil spirit influenced and disordered Saul's thinking, afflicted him with obsessions, compulsions to murder David, fits of rage, delusions and paranoia.  They befouled his conscience, and inflated his disordered passions thereby, "filling him with unrest, anger, fear and murderous intent." (Occult Bondage and Deliverance, Kurt E. Koch, p. 137)

"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ."  Colossian 2:8-9

The Apostle Paul warned against being taken captive by "elemental spirits" that are “not after Christ."  By  perpetrating deceptions through the elements and powers of the cosmos, Satan lures people away from the Lord Jesus Christ and toward other beings that inhabit the universe, whether real or imagined.   What this means is that the impersonal, mystical evolutionary 'powers' ascribed by evolutionary theologians and their pagan counterparts to the Void, World Soul, Divine One Substance, Teilhard's Omega, Christ consciousness, the Force, evolution, chance, zoe, prakriti matter and so forth are the powers of elemental spirits applied to the inventions of deluded, superstitious men.

Over the past three hundred years the two-dimensional Western Christian tradition grounded in the Revelation of God has been incrementally eclipsed by one-dimensional pagan and mystical pantheist ways of thinking that have been artfully revamped and revised for modern Western consumption.  In “The Making of the New Spirituality,” James Herrick masterfully demonstrates how each major tenet of the Revealed Word has been radically reinvented and is being disseminated by certain scientists, occult New Age gurus, evolutionary theologians, and new religious cults as well as through books, speeches, magazines, popular TV programs, plays, radio interviews, music, and websites.

With regard to the Revealed Word, Herrick lists seven major tenets:

1. The supernatural authority of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures: Beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the Bible is taken to be divinely delivered, thus uniquely authoritative as a source of ultimate truth.

2. A personal, creating and wholly other God:  The Triune God is all-knowing, all-powerful, present everywhere and possesses traits of a personality—thoughts, motives, and the capacity to form relationships.  He spoke the physical and spiritual worlds into existence ex nihilo, or out of nothing.  Moreover He is neither contained in nature in any way nor equivalent with the created order, meaning that man does not have a share of God’s substance as pagan thinking maintains and evolutionary theism implies.

3. God’s creation of the human race: The Revealed Word teaches that the human race is a special creation of God, the only part of the creation to bear His spiritual image (mind/spirit).  Man then is not a product of strictly natural processes.

4. An intervening God: The Revealed Word affirms that God’s activity includes involvement in the lives of individual human beings.  On occasion God’s  personal involvement is in the form of communication and at other times He miraculously alters the ordinary course of cause and effect.  Though He invites address and petition through prayer He is not at the command of human beings.

5. Humankind’s Fall:  The human race fell into sin at the beginning of its existence as a consequence of their refusal to accept divinely mandated limitations on their activities. The Fall carried with it various catastrophic consequences including spiritual confusion, a state of spiritual separation from God and the inevitability of death.

6. Jesus Christ is God Incarnate: Jesus Christ uniquely manifested God in human form.  Jesus is a revelation of God’s nature in person and the only human being to ever fully express the divine nature.  His death and resurrection are uniquely redemptive of fallen humanity.  These events are the sole provision by the living God for the salvation of the human race.  There is no other way but His offer of salvation.

7. Human destiny and divine judgment: The Revealed Word insists that the eternal destiny of the human race is to be determined only by God.  Neither the present earth nor the human race exists indefinitely.  Human beings live but one life.  They do not spiritually evolve or reincarnate.    A final judgment of the human race will occur, and each individual human being will be held accountable for the life lived.

Herrick calls the new pagan spirituality “the New Religious Synthesis” and lists seven of its major components:

1. History is not important: As evolution is a primary doctrine of the new spirituality, and it implies continuous change or transformation, then history as a record of events in space and time is as useless and absurd as are Special Creation, unchanging higher truths, moral absolutes and the two created sexes.

2. The dominance of reason:  Reason—also mind, Christ-consciousness, intellect, awareness, divine spark, pattern, mind-stream or imagination—is the divine essence in humans.  It is virtually unlimited in its potential development through scientific study, evolution, and mystical experiences.  The divine essence is the gateway to human apprehension of spiritual insights such as ‘oneness’ and ‘interconnectedness’ coming to those with the most highly evolved consciousness:

Perhaps the most vital function of psychedelic drugs and plants is their ability to reliably produce spiritual or mystical experiences. These transpersonal experiences of “oneness,” or inseparability, often result in an increased sense of ecological awareness, a greater sense of interconnection, a transcendence of the fear of death, a sense of the sacred or divine, a desire to help humanity, and an identification with something much larger than one’s body or personal life.”  (Psychedelic Drug Research Heralds the Future Science of Divinity, David Jay Brown, Santa Cruz Patch, June 2012)

3. The spiritualization of science: The tool employed by divine reason to acquire new spiritual truths

4. The animation of nature: Nature (matter) is infused with and animated by divine spirit, the Force, Zoe, consciousness, serpent power or life force

5. Hidden knowledge (gnosis) and spiritual progress: Gnosis is the key to spiritual insight and human progress and is the preserve of some scientists, mediums and a new class of Western shamans.  Such knowledge comes by means of science and spiritual technologies that lead to direct communication with the Ultimate Source ( also monistic One Substance, Chaos, Divine Abyss, Primordial Matter, Void, Omega, Quantum Void).

Emptying the mind and disconnecting from reality are the goals of psycho-spiritual technologies:

“…..spiritual power and a vibrant connection with the universe (is attained by) emptying the mind, leaving reality and getting “high” within. Meditation (sometimes facilitated by, in a Woodstock way, listening to rock music, experimenting with sex, and smoking pot or popping hallucinatory drugs—you know, a little help from “my friends”) often induced what can be called “altered state[s] of consciousness….”    “Ecstasy can be deliberately induced using religious or creative activities, meditation, music, dancing, breathing exercises, physical exercise, sex or consumption of psychotropic drugs.” (Altered States: A Different Gate, Sarah Leslie and Pastor Larry DeBruyn, Herescope, April 2011)

 In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called the New Age Bible, Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) reports that many psycho-spiritual technologies employed today for purposes of expanding and transforming personal consciousness were once the secret of an ancient elite going back to Babylon and even Atlantis, according to some New Age historians. (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 34)

Ferguson lists a number of these consciousness altering techniques:   

"...Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control...." (ibid, p. 43)

6. Spiritual evolution: Spiritual evolution is not simply change but advancement that occurs incrementally over time as the initiate achieves greater and greater interconnectedness with the Ultimate Source.  The eventual result of this process will supposedly be human divinity but in reality ends in insanity and/or possession.

7. Religious pluralism as rooted in mystical experiences of the Ultimate Source:  Mystical experiences of interconnectedness or oneness  provide a basis for religious pluralism:

“Bishop William Swing, of the Episcopal Church’s Diocese of California, thinks he is  building a religious bridge to the new millennium, and he wants everybody on Earth to  cross it with him. His United Religions Initiative (URI) is trying to create a United  Religions, a world parliament of religions, “a permanent assembly, with the stature  and visibility of the United Nations, where the world’s religions and spiritual  communities will gather on a daily basis, in prayerful dialogue and cooperative action, to  make peace among religions and to be a force for peace among nations, to address urgent  human need and to heal the earth.”  (The United Religions Initiative—Foundation for a World Religion, Lee Penn)

According to Swing’s experience of oneness:

Religion is concerned with the relationship of human beings with their spiritual  Origin. We believe in the universality and eternity of the Spirit. We believe that all  religions derive their wisdom from that ultimate Source. Therefore, the world’s faith  traditions share in common wisdom, which can be obscured by differences in religious  concepts and practices. … The United Religions promotes dialogue. A theology of  acceptance will help the world’s people explore common ground. Our awareness of unity  within religious diversity promotes ever-increasing kinship.” (ibid)

So stunning has been the transformation of Western consciousness under the shaping influence of science, evolution and the New Religious Synthesis that it has now supplanted the Revealed Word as the religious foundation of a large and growing number of Westerners and Americans....including large numbers of uninformed Christians.  James Herrick comments:

For many Westerners, the long-prophesied new spiritual age certainly has arrived.  The Revealed Word and its busy, personal God have faded into our collective spiritual memory, and bright new spiritual commitments encourage fresh religious thought.”  (Herrick, p. 16)

As Herrick demonstrates, the pagan way of thinking represented by occult Eastern pantheist creeds, the Stoics and Epicureans are the principle enemies of the Revealed Word and by extension, of salvation unto life eternal.  Thus in obedience to our Lord, and as an act of agape love for the faithful and all who are open to truth, we are to actively contend against these infernal pagan teachings even though our paganized culture and increasingly paganized church not only ridicule, scoff, scorn and reject us but accuse us of insanity, intolerance, idiocy, divisiveness, and hate.

Semjaza, Azazel, Androgyny & America's Apostasy into Pagan Spirituality & Sexuality

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

"ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god which ye made to yourselves."  (Amos 5:26-27) "ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them." ( Acts 7:42-43)
 
Chiun in Amos answers to Remphan in Acts; and this god in turn is but another phase of Moloch or Saturn, the "star god," A star was put on the head of the images of the idol representing Saturn; hence "images" answer to "star" in parallelism while  Remphan and Chiun answer to the Phoenician goddess Astarte or Ashtoreth (1), as well as to Moloch, Cybele, Pan and Cernunnos, the horned god of Celtic polytheism and in India to Parvati and Siva, the androgynous destroyer of worlds. 

The Return of Ashtar and Semjaza 
 
World-renowned UFOlogist and archaeologist Dr. Clifford Wilson is but one of many researchers who have pointed out how an entity calling itself "Ashtar" keeps popping up in UFO accounts.   Apart from Semjase (Samlazaz, Semjaza), who has been posing as a modern space-brother, Ashtar keeps appearing in UFO literature as well as ancient texts.  John Keel, one of the world's most published and highly respected UFOlogists also noted this.   Highlighting the element of deception he wrote:
 
"Thousands of mediums, psychics, and UFO contactees have been receiving mountains of messages from "Ashtar" in recent years.... Ashtar is not a new arrival.    Variations of this name, such as Astaroth, Ashar, Asharoth, etc. appear in demonological literature throughout history, both in the Orient and Occident.   Mr. Ashtar had been around a very long time, posing as assorted gods and demons and now, in the modern phase, as another glorious spaceman."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 290)
 
Astoreth (Inanna, Ashtar, Ishtar of the Accadians, Semiramis, Milcom, Cybele, Astarte of the Greeks, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite; 1 Kings 11:5, 33; 2 Kings 23:13) was the androgynous consort of Anu, the supreme sky god.  
 
According to Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their,

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

The androgynous Ishtar required androgynous priests to function as "her" temple priests (shaman)  who engendered demonic abhorrence in others:
 
"…the fearful respect they provoked is to be sought in their otherness, their position between myth and reality, and their divine-demonic ability to transgress boundaries.”
 
The Baal-Astarte (Astoreth) nature religions of ancient Canaan appear to maintain a similar view of spirituality and obscene sexuality. The goddess Anat (Astarte) preserves many of the characteristics of Istar. Like the Syrian goddess Cybele, Anat is headstrong and submits to no one. She/he is androgynous, being both young and nubile but also a bearded soldier:
 
"She thus symbolizes the mystical union, which was celebrated by her worshipers as a ritual enactment of the hieros gamos [sacred spiritual marriage]. The Old Testament gives some indication that Canaanite religion included homosexual androgyny, against which Israel was constantly put on guard." (Jones)
 
Beginning with the Babylonian mystery religion in the post-flood world, as with all mystery religions and occult secret societies around the world, the highest stage of enlightenment/illumination is achieved through the internalization,

 "... of duality and the equilibrium between opposing forces –  good and evil, active and passive. male and female. This concept is symbolically represented by the horned, hermaphrodite god Baphomet."  It is also represented in "alchemical symbolism with Alchemical Androgynes such as Caitlyn/Bruce Jenner." (The Agenda Behind Bruce Jenner's Transformation, Vigilant Citizen)

Conjunctio, the unification of all the opposites within oneself means the asexual shaman is beyond gender difference residing in the bliss of abiding love:

"The Siberian shamans...and the shamans of Central Asia engage in ecstatic rituals and dress as androgynes. Among the Ngadju Dyak, a pagan people-group...of southern Borneo, the basir, “asexual priest-shamans…true hermaphrodites, dressing and behaving like women,” have a priestly function.” This behavior also characterizes Amazonian shamans, Celtic priests [ancient and modern], and Indian hijras. The hijras, who go back into the mists of Hinduism, are a religious community of men who “dress and act like women and whose cul-ture centers on the worship of Bahuchara Mata, one of the many versions of the Mother Goddess worshipped throughout India.” In another form of Hindu spirituality, Tantric Yoga, androgyny is also the goal, where the two contrary principles of Shiva and Shakti are joined....The yogin, through powerful techniques of sexual-spiritual meditation, is thus transformed “into a kind of ‘androgyne.” In Buddhism also the true human, the archetype, called a bodhiasattva, is androgynous. These yogic practices and mystical teachings concerning androgyny are doubtless as old as the Mesopotamian and Syrian examples discussed above."  (Jones)

Who are Semjaza (Shemihazah) and Azazel (Asa’el )?

According to Dr. Michael Heiser, ANE Scholar, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University,

"Azazel is the name of a demon in the Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient Jewish books. In fact, one scroll (4Q 180, 1:8) Azazel is the leader of the angels that sinned in Genesis 6:1-4. The same description appears in the book of 1 Enoch 8:1; 9:6; 10:4–8; 13:1; 54:5–6; 55:4; 69:2)  

Andrei A. Orlov is a specialist in Jewish apocalypticism and mysticism, Second Temple Judaism, and Old Testament pseudepigrapha. Within the field of Second Temple Jewish apocalyptic literature, Orlov is considered among the leading experts in the field of Slavonic texts related to Jewish mysticism and Enochic traditions.  With respect to Azazel (Asa'el) Orlov argues that the fallen angel was not just a leader of the fallen angels but "the" leader.  In this view it was Asae'l who instigated the rebellion of the Watchers against the Lord, revealed heavenly secrets and impregnated the daughters of men, thereby siring giants.  According to a fragmentary text from the Book of Giants found at Qumran (4Q203) the punishment for all the sins of the fallen angels is placed on Azazel.

 Dr. Heiser identifies the Watchers as serpentine Seraphim,

"There are "good" serpentine beings (seraphim) who guard God's throne (so Isaiah 6's seraphim), and there are fallen, wicked serpentine beings (seraphim) who rebelled against the Most High at various times, and who became the pagan gods of the other nations."   (Michael Heiser, "Serpentine/Reptillian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

 Gary Bates also turns to the Book of Enoch for answers.  Not only does the Book of Jude 14-15 refer to the book of Enoch but is an exact rendering of Enoch, chapter 1:9.   Moreover, Enoch 6-7 identifies Semjaza as the ringleader of the 200 Watchers who descended Mount Hermon in the pre-flood world:

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

The Watchers taught men enchantments, sorcery, transformism (change or evolution of one kind into another kind), astrology, science of constellations, signs, the smitings of spirits and demons, and the smitings of the embryo in the womb, that it may pass away.  They also taught men how  to make weapons of war.  
 
In the Biblical epic fantasy "Enoch Primordial," Biblical scholar and ANE researcher Bryan Godawa tells the story of the Fall of the Watchers and the rise of the Nephilim generations before the Flood.   After descending Mount Hermon the two leaders of the fallen Watchers, Semjaza and Azazel choose to become the gods Anu and Inanna, the horned androgynous goddess of war and obscene sexuality whose worship was marked by temple prostitution, transgenderism, bi-sexuality, sexual mysticism, ecstatic pleasure and bloody sadistic pain and human sacrifice.  

 As Ishtar, the male angel Azazel was the "wife" of Tammuz who was also her son :
 
"And He said to me, "Yet you will see still greater abominations which they are committing." Then He brought me to the entrance of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and behold, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz. He said to me, "Do you see this, son of man? Yet you will see still greater abominations than these."   Ezekiel 8:13-15

Speaking of Semiramis (Ishtar) and her "son" Tammuz, noted English archeologist and antiquarian Alexander Hislop said:

"The Babylonians....supremely worshipped a goddess mother and son (Semiramis and Tammuz). From Babylon, this worship of the mother and child spread to the ends of the earth.  In Egypt, (they were worshipped) under the names of Isiis and Osiris.  In India, even to this day, as Isi (or Parvati) and Ishwara (the Indian God Ishwara is represented as an infant at the breast of his own wife, Isi, or Parvati)....the Hindu mythology is admitted to be essentially Babylonian." (The Two Babylons, Hislop, 1916, pp. 20, 78, 96)

The mystery religion of Babylon is the taproot of all mystery religions, occult psycho-spiritual techniques (3), occult secret societies (such as the Masons), secret initiations, and secret knowledge (gnosis/illumination).  It promises the keys to the tree of life (immortality) as well as divinity.   India has been the vineyard where the Babylonian mystery religion took root unhindered and fermented over the centuries into a refined wine. (2)   Its' exalted priesthood has been identified across space and time with androgyny, indicating beyond a doubt, the enormous priority paganism has given, and continues to give in our own time "to the undermining of God-ordained monogamous heterosexuality, and the enthusiastic promotion of androgyny in its varied forms."  (Jones)

The "Death" of the Triune God

C.S. Lewis observed in The Abolition of Man (1947) that Cosmic (Eastern-oriented mystical pantheism) and Secular Humanism (pagan materialism) appeared in Western history in the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance. The Renaissance reawakened a magic view of the world closely connected with pagan Gnostic sectarianism, Eastern pantheism as well as the science of magic, spiritism, and the mysteries. Along with Eastern pantheism came spiritual evolution, reincarnation, karma and occultism, which means that evolutionary conceptions existed long before Darwin.

Early on Lewis understood that Cosmic and Secular Humanism were merely two sides of the same revival of pagan monism. Thus he argued, Cosmic and Secular Humanism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies united against the transcendent Creator, His created order, miracles, Heaven, Hell, the Fall, the Gospel of Christ, and Christian-based civilization.

Brooks Alexander also identifies both Cosmic and Secular Humanism as the two sides of pagan monism. And because they are from the same root they tend to cross-pollinate and:

"mingle, producing a brood of offspring that exhibits the genetic heritage of its parents in a confused and confusing array. Soon it becomes impossible to say whether a given movement, trend or school of thought is a secular impulse that has absorbed Eastern/occult values, or an Eastern/occult teaching that has dressed itself in secular language." (The Rise of Cosmic Humanism: What is Religion?" Brooks Alexander, SCP Journal, 1981-82, p. 2)

When during the Sixties, theologians triumphantly declared the “death of God,” they fostered a rejection of the theism of the Judeo-Christian scriptures, as well as an abandonment of biblical sexuality. Theologian David Miller declared in 1974:

"…the announcement of the death of God was the obituary of a useless single-minded and one-dimensional norm of a civilization that has been predominantly monotheistic, not only in its religion, but also in its politics, its history, its social order, its ethics, and its psychology. When released from the tyrannical imperialism of monotheism by the death of God, man has the opportunity of discovering new dimensions hidden in the depths of reality’s history."  (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Peter Jones, truthxchange)
 
Today we see that apostasy from the Holy Triune God and by extension from "In the beginning God created" in favor of anti-creation evolutionary cosmogonies (4) and "He created them male and female" (Gen. 5:2) in favor of LGBTQ is pagan and demonic to the core, and has produced in one generation, in post-Christian America a return to Babylonian nature worship seamlessly merged with Eastern mystery religion and occult pantheism:

"...we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places."  Ephesians 6:12, ESV
 
Revelation reports that at some point the whole world becomes drunk on the wine of Babylon, its' imbibers convinced of their own deity. Toward this end, the Watchers---posing as Transcended Masters, Space Brothers, the Council of Nine, goddesses and spirit guides---teach evolutionary cosmogonies (4) issuing in a man-centered cosmos consisting of an evolving panentheist or pantheist-christ spirit permeating and making sacred everything animate and inanimate.  This sacred evolving christ-force or universal energy is the one monistic reality which comprises both the center and circumference of the universe symbolized by the circle, a snake biting its own tail.  The point of monism (oneness, collectivism) is that since everything is "one" there can be no "twos" such as man and woman and man and God but rather one-integrated being, in other words, a transgender/androgynous god-man. In this view, "Caitlyn" is the androgynous ideal we should strive for individually and Sodom and Gomorrah collectively.  Toward this infernal end the Watchers have made great strides.  Their success is very clearly seen in a fast-moving infernal river of pollution in the form of moral relativism, pornography, abortion, pederasty, pedophilia, sodomy, androgyny, and the same pagan spirituality and obscene androgynous sexuality that has always characterized occult paganism.  Leading the attack of the pollution brigade are apostate theologians, many intellectuals,  President Obama, the State Department and a broad spectrum of U.S. agencies enlisted in the global battle for LGBTQ rights:

"The Departments of State, the Treasury, Defense, Justice, Agriculture, Commerce, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the Export Import Bank, the United States Trade Representative, and such other agencies as the President may designate."  (U.S. State Department to Force Gay Agenda on Foreign Nations, MassResistance) (5)

In the diminishing presence of faithful orthodox Christians and Jews, America for the most part is eagerly abandoning our Lord in favor of pagan spirituality, occultism, and the pan-sexuality of the androgynous goddess of a thousand names: Azazel.  (1 Kings 11:33) All of this leads Peter Jones to ask:
 
"Might we be on the verge of witnessing the construction of an eschatological Sodom and Gomorrah, as the title of a recent pro-gay book, Reclaiming Sodom, suggests?"

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Heb. 10:31).  If He spared not the angels that sinned, but delivered them, drawn down by infernal ropes to the lower hell unto torments (2 Pet. 2:4), then He shall say to the men and women of Sodom and Gomorrah and to all other workers of iniquity (Luke 13:27), depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. (Mat. 25:41)

Liberal Professors Reaping what They've Sown from their Liberal Frankenstein Students

Recent days have witnessed a lengthening parade of liberal professors admitting that they fear their own students.  The latest is Edward Schlosser.  

Schlosser confesses he has intentionally adjusted his teaching materials as the political winds have shifted. (I also make sure all my remotely offensive or challenging opinions, such as this article, are expressed either anonymously or pseudonymously). Most of my colleagues who still have jobs have done the same:

" We’ve seen bad things happen to too many good teachers — adjuncts getting axed because their evaluations dipped below a 3.0, grad students being removed from classes after a single student complaint, and so on."

"I once saw an adjunct not get his contract renewed after students complained that he exposed them to “offensive” texts written by Edward Said and Mark Twain. His response, that the texts were meant to be a little upsetting, only fueled the students’ ire and sealed his fate. That was enough to get me to comb through my syllabi and cut out anything I could see upsetting a coddled undergrad, texts ranging from Upton Sinclair to Maureen Tkacik — and I wasn’t the only one who made adjustments, either..."  (I'm a liberal professor, and my liberal students terrify me, Edward Schlosser, vox.com, June 3, 2015)

Following a program of stupidity, depravity and evil devised by God-hating Bolsheviks and Marxists for the overhauling of Orthodox Christian Russia, for more than fifty years atheist progressive liberals have been doing unto America what God-hating atheists did to Russia.  This means that they've stealthily undermined and nearly destroyed America's Christian Church and Biblical-based worldview, revised America's history,  dumbed-down and sexualized our youth, and with full malice aforethought, have sown seeds of hate, envy and division:

" 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 root destruction of religion in the country, which throughout the twenties and thirties was one of the most important goals of the GPU-NKVD, could be realized only by mass arrests of Orthodox believers. Monks and nuns, whose black habits had been a distinctive feature of Old Russian life, were intensively rounded up on every hand, placed under arrest, and sent into exile. They arrested and sentenced active laymen. The circles kept getting bigger, as they raked in ordinary believers as well, old people and particularly women, who were the most stubborn believers of all and who, for many long years to come, would be called 'nuns' in transit prisons and in camps.

True, they were supposedly being arrested and tried not for their actual faith but for openly declaring their convictions and for bringing up their children in the same spirit. As Tanya Khodkevich wrote:

You can pray freely
But just so God alone can hear.

(She received a ten-year sentence for these verses.) A person convinced that he possessed spiritual truth was required to conceal it from his own children! In the twenties the religious education of children was classified as a political crime under Article 58-10 of the Code--in other words, counterrevolutionary propaganda! True, one was permitted to renounce one's religion at one's trial: it didn't often happen but it nonetheless did happen that the father would renounce his religion and remain at home to raise the children while the mother went to the Solovetsky Islands. (Throughout all those years women manifested great firmness in their faith.) All persons convicted of religious activity received 'tenners,' the longest term then given. (In those years, particularly in 1927, in purging the big cities for the pure society that was coming into being, they sent prostitutes to the Solovetsky Islands along with the 'nuns.' Those lovers of a sinful earthly life were given three-year sentences under a more lenient article of the Code. The conditions in prisoner transports, in transit prisons, and on the Solovetsky Islands were not of a sort to hinder them from plying their merry trade among the administrators and the convoy guards. And three years later they would return with laden suitcases to the places they had come from. Religious prisoners, however, were prohibited from ever returning to their children and their home areas.)"  
Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956: An Experiment in Literary Investigation, Books I-II  
   
 The success of progressivisms' programmatic evil is seen in many tragic and devastating ways today as evidenced by Solzhenitsyn's lengthy quotes, but especially by the fact that it is now a sign of intolerance, racism, homophobia, bigotry and hate to point out that man is not born good, as self-deceived Progressive Liberals of both atheist and cosmic humanist schools claim. Nor is man ‘evolving’ to some higher, more godlike spiritual state. The ugly truth is that all men are born terrible-willed hedonists, says Dr. Terry G. Shaw:

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

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

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

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

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

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

 We cannot understand why America is in danger of becoming a modern Sodom and Gomorrah or why Edward Schlosser and other Liberal professors are terrified of their liberal Frankenstein-students unless we return to the Biblical view of man:

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

No concept gives “deeper insight into the enigma that is man” than original sin. Evil is not just a “bad dream,” warned Richard Weaver, author of “Ideas Have Consequences.” Evil is not “an accident of history,” or the “creation of a few antisocial men.” It is a “subtle, protean force,” and original sin is a “parabolical expression” of this “immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing.” (ibid)

In the process of his 50 year study of the calamitous Russian Revolution Solzhenitsyn read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and contributed eight volumes toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval:

" But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous Revolution that swallowed up some sixty million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: "Men have forgotten God, that's why this has happened."  

The irony underlying the growing fear of liberal professors and the utterly depraved “safe spaces” and "triggers" controversy and its’ chilling impact on self-absorbed emotional tyrants (students) is that atheist progressive liberal faculty (supplemented by godless liberal media hyping and amoral entertainment) are responsible for preaching to so-called unenlightened Americans how their so-called “enlightened progressive” views of our Lord, heaven, hell, sin, moral law, immutable truth, history, evolution, scientism, and society are the only ones that count.  But, that which is called humanism, but would be more correctly called irreligious anthropocentrism, said Solzhenitsyn:

"... cannot yield answers to the most essential questions of our life" 

Thus this generation of self-absorbed Frankensteins have come up in a spiritually and morally debauched, sexually perverse, intellectually bankrupt time. They can neither spell nor articulate a coherent thought but they know the “rights” "entitlements" and “privileges” owed them by parents and society and claim abuse of their autonomy whenever their will is thwarted or their feelings are hurt.

This being so, the growing fears of a group of  whining, self-pitying humanist professors may well be the “rewards” they’re reaping for what they’ve sown.

Political Correctness: Public Advocacy of Vice

Robert Reilly, chairman of the Committee for Western Civilization, observes that for any individual, moral failure is hard to live with because of the rebuke of conscience. Habitual moral failure, what used to be called vice or sin, can be lived with only by obliterating conscience through rationalization.  The door of the conscience is systematically forced open wider and wider by rationalization until the point is reached where the formerly objectionable practice is occurring constantly and for whatever reason:

Your conscience is the part of you which embraces what is good and which rejects evil. It is like the doorkeeper of a house which is open to friends and closed to enemies.” (Hilary of Arles, Ancient Christian Devotional, p. 127)    

Rationalization is a defense mechanism, a form of self-deception that compromises and befouls conscience so as to make tolerable and acceptable thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and motives that would otherwise be unacceptable, thus when we rationalize, we convince ourselves that heretofore forbidden desires and actions are permissible:

" We advance the reality of the desires over the reality of the moral order to which the desires should be subordinated. In our minds we replace the reality of moral order with something more congenial to the activity we are excusing. In short, we assert that bad is good."  (Culture of Vice, Robert Reilly, Orthodoxy Today)

Rationalization, aka political correctness is the wisdom of fallen man that,

".... is earthly, natural, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy ." James 3:15-17

When a person deceives himself habitually, his conscience becomes seared, thereby allowing his harmful or destructive thoughts and behaviors to become justified in his mind. In this way he becomes a self-convinced and indefatigable public advocate of his own moral failures, ill will, and myriad vices.   Examples of this are Bruce Jenner with his so-called "logical" advocacy of his supposed femaleness, and unflagging advocacy of so-called global change: 

Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.” – Barack Obama,US President
 
We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”- Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation 

Over and across America, the unrelenting and determined power of wicked rationalization known as political correctness drives the culture war, giving it its revolutionary character and making its advocates relentless.  Rationalization may draw its energy from desperation, furious bitterness, jealousy, covetousness and envy but it is all the more powerful and tireless for that. 

Since failed rationalization means self-recrimination, it must be avoided no matter the cost--to babies, children, adults, whole cultures and civilizations.  For this reason, the myriad vices being forced upon our culture such as "gay" rights (sodomy), "choice" (the right to kill the unborn), and big lies such as evolution and global change as factual science are not subject to reasoned discourse.  Advocates of vices are not interested in finding 'true' truth but in maintaining the illusions that allow them to continue their lies, behaviors and destructive agendas.  For them to succeed in this, everyone must submit to their rationalizations or be destroyed by way of demonization; accusations of hatred, bigotry and insanity; public shaming, shunning and scape-goating.  This is why revolutionary change is required:

" The necessity for self-justification requires the complicity of the whole culture. Holdouts cannot be tolerated because they are potential rebukes. The self-hatred, anger, and guilt that a person possessed of a functioning conscience would normally feel from doing wrong are redirected by the rationalization and projected upon society as a whole (if the society is healthy), or upon those in society who do not accept the rationalization. "  (Reilly)

And so it must be. If you are going to center your public life on the act of sodomy or of killing innocent yet unwanted people or in seizing control of all wealth and resources in order to refuse them to hated "others" you  had better transform your failures and evil intentions into highly virtuous intentions and moral acts. 

America is collapsing because though a society can withstand any number of persons who try to advance their own moral disorders as public policy,

" ... it cannot survive once it adopts the justification for those moral disorders as its own. This is what is at stake in the culture war. " (Robert Reilly, chairman of the Committee for Western Civilization)

Climate Change: Why Genocide is the Answer

The murderous secular humanist nature religions of neo-pagan Communism and occult pagan Nazism were spawned by the anti-Christian God and utopian tradition of Revolutionary France. The Black Book of Communism, an 800-page compendium of the crimes committed against humanity by Communist and Socialist regimes worldwide graphically details the terror, torture, man-made famines, mass deportations, starvation, destruction of the family, sexualization and perversion of children, and massacres undertaken on behalf of revolutionary utopian ideals.  The reality of Communism, which claimed to be an emissary of the Enlightenment, of universal brotherhood, and of happiness for all as envisioned by Gracchus Babeuf, turned out to be a sadistic engine of unimaginable evil and the creator of hells on earth. 

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)  

These murderous pagan-state governments systematically dehumanized and murdered millions of "useless eaters"  "human weeds" and other undesirables to create an imaginary earthly Eden and this is clearly irrational.   In this sense totalitarianism is the secular pagan equivalent of a pagan nature worship religion grounded in a dehumanizing man-centered universe where the majority of humanity is on a par with slugs, weeds, and apes, thus entirely expendable.

This evil religion continues today as a "scientific" "evolutionary" secular, politico-centric faith disdainful of orthodox Christian faith and contemptuous of the faithful.   This evil, murderous religion,

"is a faith that, in its historical manifestation, 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)

Today's variation of this evil religion is "green" Technocracy or occult pagan and pantheist Agenda 21 grounded in evolutionary biocentrism or ecocentrism, terms synonymous with today's sustainable development and global warming/cooling/change agenda.  Evolutionary biocentrism is a revamped version of Communism's Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking, the engine of evil that unleashed rivers of blood in Marxist controlled Russia and Nazi controlled Germany.

Phony Climate Change

In "Pope Francis: Climate Change is Real and Humans are Causing It," Mother Jones writer Jeremy Schulman reported with approval  that Pope Francis relies upon science to inform his opinions about climate change. (Mother Jones, Jan. 15, 2015)

Global change science is synonymous with evolution, which as it implies continuous change is both a form of moral relativism and nihilism.  Evolution and global change science are therefore two of the Big Lies repeated over and over by today's builders of a globally "green" socialist New World Order:

The goal now is a socialist, redistributionist society, which is nature’s proper steward and society’s only hope.” David Brower, founder of Friends of the Earth
 
Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?”- Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Program

Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.” UN Agenda 21
 
“I envisage the principles of the Earth Charter to be a new form of the ten commandments. They lay the foundation for a sustainable global earth community.” – Mikhail Gorbachev, co-author of The Earth Charter
 
We are close to a time when all of humankind will envision a global agenda that encompasses a kind of Global Marshall Plan to address the causes of poverty and suffering and environmental destruction all over the earth.” Al Gore, Earth in the Balance
 
We have reached the critical moment of decision on climate change. Failure to act to now would be deeply and unforgivably irresponsible. We urgently require a global environmental revolution.” Tony Blair,former British PM
 
Climate change should be seen as the greatest challenge to ever face mankind.”Prince Charles
 
Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.” – Barack Obama,US President
 
We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”- Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation
 
No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”- Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment
 
Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It’s global warming. It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world.” Harry Reid, U.S. Senate majority leader
 
By the end of this century climate change will reduce the human population to a few breeding pairs surviving near the Arctic.” – Sir James Lovelock, Revenge of Gaia
 
Ridding the world of millions if not billions of useless eaters has always been of paramount importance to global pagan socialists.  Means toward this end vary from collectivization of healthcare and energy resources so as to deny these life-sustaining necessities to target groups to abortion as “choice,” promoting unhealthy "gay" lifestyles and destruction of the traditional family.   Another evil scheme is the intentional dividing of citizens against each other so as to maliciously stir up murderous hatred of one group (i.e. white straight people) by other groups (i.e., black people and "gays"). When murderous hatred finally explodes into widespread murder it serves as another convenient means to population reduction since:
 
"Nonpersons or potential persons cannot be wronged…because death does not deprive them of something they value."  (John Harris, Sir David Alliance professor of bioethics, University of Manchester, England)
 
"Saying homo sapiens are a 'plague species,' the London Zoo opened a new exhibit featuring--eight humans.  We have set up this exhibit to highlight the spread of man as a plague species and to communicate the importance of man's place in the planet's ecosystem."  (Human Beings: Plague Species; WorldNet Daily, 2005)

 "Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs."  (Earth First! Journal editor John Daily)

"To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world population problem." (Yale professor Lamont Cole)

"The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States." (Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund)

"Until such time as homo sapiens decide to rejoin nature, (we) can only hope for the right virus to come along."  (David Graber, research biologist with the National Park Service)

Biocentrism:  Eliminating Human Weeds and Other Deceptive Schemes  

"In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would fill the bill.  All these dangers are caused by human intervention…the real enemy…is humanity itself."  (The First Global Revolution, published by the Club of Rome)   

 "In Guyana, within 2 years, it (DDT) had almost eliminated malaria…my chief quarrel with DDT…is that it has greatly added to the population problem."  (Alexander King, former president of the Club of Rome)

Note:  In the 60's, a group of depopulation "green" environmentalists conspired to have DDT banned from being used to control mosquitoes and malaria.  The subsequent banning of DDT resulted in millions of deaths.  One source estimated the death total as 500 million.  

How Many Sub-Humans Should be Allowed to Exist?    

"The total world population should be no more than 2 billion rather than the current 5.6 billion."  (Cornell University professor David Pimentel, speaking before the American Assoc. for the Advancement of Science)

"The damage people cause is a function of demographics…One American burdens the earth much more than 20 Bangladeshes…In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day."  (Jacques Cousteau, the UNESCO Courier, Nov. 1991)

"Cut the population by 90%"  (Dr. Sam Keen, Gorbachev Conference in San Francisco)

Intentional Unleashing of Plagues  

"I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing.  There are others…If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate…without making the world too full…the state of affairs might be unpleasant but what of it?  Really high-minded people are indifferent to suffering, especially that of others."  (Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society)

Although they've not managed to spread a Black Death (as yet), they have thus far managed to ignite a worldwide conflagration of STDS and AIDS.  Keep in mind that, backed by America's State Department, it is pagan and pantheist progressives, liberals, the men of Sodom,  and their international cohorts who have been proclaiming the international rights of "gays" and preaching their gospel of ''salvation and redemption by sex'' (so-called safe sex). 

Under the Obama administration America has become the world's perverse-sex cop intervening in the workings of other nations where sodomy, lesbianism and worse are  not promoted and tolerated. America's tax-payer financed State Department and other federal agencies have not only strengthened the work already done in pursuit of this evil but have initiated additional efforts to crush dissent in defense and promotion  of all things unnatural.(Obama offers plan for U.S. to be global LGBT sex cop, Bob Unruh, WND, 12/7, 2011)  

What they don't want you to know is that it's the environment (Gaia) they are trying to save from the human plague.  Thus causing human weeds to self-destruct, that is, become diseased, sterile, psychologically damaged, and die young is part of the "greens"  diabolical scheme to redeem the world. 

Ask yourselves why there has been no logical response to this plague.  Why for instance, in the face of mounting death totals (468,000 dead from AIDs since 1981), do they insist on teaching our children to engage in the perverse behaviors which are known causes of disease, sterility and death?  The CDC (2002) reports that 16,000 deaths from AIDs occur annually. Another 40,000 new cases of infection occur within the same time frame.  There are more than 1 million cases of HIV, 31-50 million of herpes simplex, 24 million of HPV, and 1 million cases of chronic hepatitis B.

Green Hell 

The world is being actively transformed by a spiritually "green" pagan and pantheist Gnostic power elite and their minions according to a very narrow economical/political/social philosophy called Technocracy, and it is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world:
 
“….Technocracy is being sponsored and orchestrated by a global elite led by David Rockefeller’s and Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Trilateral Commission….Originally started in the early 1930s, Technocracy is antithetical to every American institution that made us into the greatest nation on earth. It eschews property rights, obsoletes capitalism, hates politicians and traditional political structures, and promises a lofty utopian dream made possible only if engineers, scientists, and technicians are allowed to run society. When Aldous Huxley penned Brave New World in 1932, he accurately foresaw this wrenching transformation of society and predicted that the end of it would be a scientific dictatorship unlike anything the world has ever seen.” (ibid, Preface, Technocracy Rising, Patrick Wood)

 Steve Milloy, author of the book "Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life" opens with a brief summary of what the “Green Movement” is really all about:
 
Green ideologues are bursting with an impatient zeal to begin dictating, through force of law, your mobility, diet, home energy use, the size of your house, how far you can travel, and even … how many children you can have … this is how the greens themselves describe their intentions … Living green is really about some else micro-regulating you ­– downsizing your dreams and plugging each one of us into a brand new social order for which we never bargained. It’s about you living under the green thumb and having the boundaries of your life drawn by others.” (Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them, Steve Milloy p. 3)
 
 While twentieth century Communists and Socialists annihilated in excess of one-hundred million men, women and children on behalf of their socialist agenda today’s "green" totalitarians speak in terms of billions. In order for spiritually pagan and pantheist totalitarians to “save the planet” billions of men, women, and children must die around the globe while America’s population must be reduced by millions.

Ideas Have Consequences   

Recently Pope Francis joined the growing ranks of anti-creation evolution-embracing theologians when he publically embraced  evolution (nihilism) and chastised the faithful for holding fast to the Genesis account of creation.   Ideas have consequences, thus theologians who embrace anti-creation evolution are at a minimum serving as gatekeepers for the murderous pantheist religion, meaning they are not serving the Lord but the Evil One in back of anti-creation evolution.  Once evolution is embraced it's just a few more downward steps to the embrace of phony climate change science, biocentrism and the hideous idea that humans are guilty of causing climate change for which genocide is the answer.

America's Rising Scape-Goating Society

In the wake of the death of the Holy God of Scripture an anarchy of selfishness, hatred, contempt and envy disguised as legal and personal opinion, evolutionary science and special rights expressed in baseless yet guilt-inducing accusations of homophobia, racism, intolerance and hate is gaining a more complete leverage over our society.  As it does what follows in its wake are absurdity, paranoia, brutality, hatred, murder, chaos and tyranny.  

An example of much of this depravity is found in a Huffington Post article, "Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People." This twisted anthem of shameless self-pity is written by a young black women, an "oppressed" and "racialized" fourth year journalism student at Ryerson University who is so blinded by her self-gratifying narcissism that she inadvertently confesses to paranoia, a delusion experienced by many narcissists.  Due to self-absorption narcissists come to believe that other people are as absorbed by thoughts of the narcissist as the narcissist is with him or herself, thus the narcissist may believe he is the target of persecution by others, in this case, by millions of "evil" racist white people whose thoughts and sole aim in life is to make the author suffer:

"Racialized people experience systemic discrimination on a daily basis, on many levels, and in ways that white people may never encounter. The whole point of these safe spaces is to remove that power dynamic. That's partly what makes them spaces for healing. The presence of any kind of privilege puts unnecessary pressure on the people of colour to defend any anger or frustrations they have, to fear the outcome of sharing their stories..." (03/18/2015 )

The depravity behind the concept of "safe spaces" is scapegoating:

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

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

A dirty conscience occluded by selfishness, self-indulgence, envy, covetousness, hate and pride hinders and blinds the narcissists' vision of herself as she really is. Thus Truth and the revelation of her own sin,

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

Just as the Middle East is a scapegoat culture where a victim of rape can be stoned to death by her rapist, here in America we witness the rapid rise of a scapegoating society because a majority of "sinless" Americans (a consensus) within and without the Christian Church reject their own fallen condition and the eternally unchanging Truth and Moral Law of the Triune God in favor of their own sovereign, yet morally relative "sacred opinions" "feelings" and "choices." Thus they refuse to accept personal responsibility for their own sins while freely and hypocritically scapegoating other people who they unjustly accuse of hate, homophobia, racism, sexism, intolerance, hate speech, fear-mongering, and mental illness. 

This is why so-called "racialized" people of color scapegoat millions of white people.  It is also why men and women of Sodom scapegoat and terrorize "hateful homophobic" straight males and females, pedophiles and pederasts scapegoat parents trying to protect their own children from sexual violators, haters of truth scapegoat the truthful, the indecent scapegoat the decent, the cowardly scapegoat the courageous, the envious crucify the human objects of their envy; thieves, rioters and murderers scapegoat society, and sinful self-indulgent unfaithful Christian compromisers scapegoat faithful Christians.

Where a majority are not guilty of their own evils, scapegoats are necessary. Human scapegoats will be burdened with the evils of the guilty and crucified on the altars of the self-centered, self-indulgent, and proud. Scripture calls this idolatry.

1 Kings 18:21--Scientific Neutrality, Biblical Deconstruction, & Modernist Christians

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6  "...in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." Colossians 2:9

John 1:10 tells us that everything seen and unseen was created ex nihilo by the spoken Word of the Son of God, which means that Jesus Christ was active and present long before His incarnation, therefore eternally co-existent with the Father. (1) Jesus Christ is therefore God just as the Father and Holy Spirit are God, thus the Word of the Old Testament's creation account is Jesus Christ of the New Testament.  Jesus Christ is the Word.   His Word is Truth even as He Himself is Truth, the same today as yesterday and for always.  Thus Jesus Christ does not change and as He is the starting point for the reasoning of the faithful, then  Christians must reject the neutrality principle and doubt, its' ugly twin, the long unchallenged principles in evolutionary modernism's longstanding war against the Word of God---the Book of Genesis in particular---in all its parts... historical, prophetical, geographical, linguistic, and doctrinal. (2)  

When Paul affirms in the Lord that his Gentile readers should no longer live as Gentile pagans do in the futility of their darkened minds (Ephesians 4: 17-24), he speaks to all pagans from antiquity to our own age (i.e., neo-pagan modernists) who reject the pure knowledge of the Holy Trinity and vainly think of themselves as "enlightened" when in reality they are "en-darkened."  Their ignorance is not a lack of education, and some of them are brilliant in their own way, but such brilliance is wasted on vain imaginings and wisdom of this world which will not get them to heaven, thus utterly foolish and futile, especially when combined with hardness of heart toward the truth of the gospel in Christ (Matt. 13:14-15; John 12:40; Acts 28: 26; Rom. 11:8)

"En-darkened" modernists claim scientific neutrality as a general operating assumption. Two applications of modernist thought evidence this:  evolution (anti-creation account/relentless change/relativism), an inverted exegesis that deconstructs and reduces man in the spiritual image of the Trinity to evolved ape, and deconstructionism (destructive criticism/critical theory). Along with evolution, deconstructionism is a form of relativism or nihilism that for more than eighty years has been spilling into and contaminating our moral and culture sustaining institutions from seminaries and Biblical scholarship to academia, law, media, arts, and politics, thence our minds, individually and collectively. (2)

The origin of the neutrality principle is the Garden of Eden. Its' father is the Evil One who tempted Eve to approach the question of eating from the forbidden tree in a neutral, unbiased fashion.  He slyly suggested  that she adopt a neutral position in order to decide who was right, God or the snake.   Like modernists of our own age Eve doubted and therefore rejected God's Word as authoritative and conclusive.  As a true neutralist she determined for herself which choice to take. (Gen. 3:4-6)

Todays' Christian Church and Western culture has for so long been saturated with evolutionary modernist claims of scientific neutrality paired with intellectual and moral autonomy that the ungodly neutrality principle which forbids the existence of immutable Truth and moral absolutes has been thoroughly ingrained in us. It is so constant and we are so accustomed to it that even within the church we fail to discern it.

Neutrality Principle, Deconstructionism & the Historical-Critical Method 

For evolutionary modernists of both pagan and pantheist persuasion to choose to not believe the Word of God on an individual level is one thing.  But in the past few hundred years the world has been witnessing a strange yet consistent phenomenon:  institutionalized Biblical deconstructionism issuing in a concerted drive,

"on an institutional level to rubbish the Scriptures altogether.  It is nothing new of course.  It's just the scale of the enterprise which takes the breath away. And it's not just international. It's global."  (The Authenticity of the Book of Genesis, Bill Cooper, p. 7)

The first Biblical deconstructionists---the ancient "fathers" of today's Biblical deconstructionists---were various Gnostic pagans in the first centuries of the Christian era.  

The methodology employed by the early Gnostic pagan Marcion for example, was to masquerade as a scholar concerned only for truth while really getting rid of everything he was offended by, especially the entire Old Testament which he deconstructed by reducing in its entirety to an unhistorical myth.   In a nutshell, this is the same method employed by modern Biblical deconstructionists. 

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 Gnostic 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)

Today it is commonplace for resuscitated Gnostic deconstructionism, otherwise known as the historical-critical method of Biblical scholarship, to be regarded as scientific, thus enlightened, neutral and objective.  Recent decades however, have witnessed a much needed rising awareness that the historical-critical method serves particular ends thus always arrives at certain conclusions.  In the meticulously researched work of intellectual history, "Politicizing the Bible," Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker greatly add to this awareness by bringing to  light the appropriation, deconstruction and paganization of scripture by politically motivated interpreters. 

Shining a powerful light of truth on the techniques taken for granted at divinity schools worldwide, Hahn and Wiker trace the origins of the modern historical-critical method deep into the Middle Ages and the Renaissance "showing the deliberate Erastian project of subjecting the Bible and with it the Christian faith to the power of the State." (4)

Through painstaking research Hahn and Wiker clearly demonstrate that the historical-critical method is grounded in the philosophy of Averroes, the writings of Machiavelli and Marsilio of Padua among others, together with the political projects of Henry VIII, Thomas Hobbes, and John Locke, and the quest for an empire of science on the part of Descartes and Spinoza. 

The authors argue that nothing can be rightly understood about the historical-critical method and the politicization of Scripture if close attention is not paid to the great cosmological shift that occurred in the seventeenth century.  What the shift yielded was both a secular (anti-supernatural and wholly naturalistic or pagan) understanding of the universe, philosophy and scientific method and a secular-pagan understanding of man and politics:

"The two occur as part of one revolution because the shift in the meaning of nature includes human nature as well." (p. 257)

With respect to the work of modern scriptural scholars, the great shift means that in order to comprehend the assumptions and methods of their own craft they have to understand the history of the philosophy and science grounded in the cosmological shift. 

As a synopsis of the monumental philosophical and scientific shift and its' abominable effects on modern biblical scholarship and Christianity, Hahn and Wiker offer the following example from the highly influential nineteenth century scriptural scholar David Friedrich Strauss.  Strauss is almost invariably the first of the modern critiques studied in the typical survey course taken by students of Scripture in graduate school.   The key introductory chapter of Strauss's "Life of Jesus Christ Critically Examined" is entitled "Development of the Mythical Point of View."   In it Strauss declares,

"...matter-of-factly that an 'account is not historical,' and hence 'the matter related could not have taken place in the manner described,' wherein 'the narration is irreconcilable with the known and universal laws which govern the course of events.   Now according to these laws, agreeing with all just philosophical conceptions and all credible experience, the absolute cause never disturbs the chain of secondary causes by single arbitrary actions of interposition." (pp. 257-258)

In other words, miracles (i.e., creation ex nihilo, Christ's Resurrection) cannot happen.  For Strauss, the exegetical assumption that miracles are fictions is based on naturalistic philosophical-scientific assumptions.   

Underlying Strauss's assumptions is an entirely naturalistic (secular-pagan), self-generating machine-like cosmos, a mathematical-mechanical view of the evolving universe, an idol of defiant, rebellious mans' mind in continual antagonism to the supernatural Judeo-Christian cosmology.  

It was Descartes, Hobbes, and Spinoza who redefined nature so that it was ontologically mathematical and mechanical, thereby paving the way for the universe to be entirely law-governed, self-contained (closed to the supernatural), self-sustaining, mechanical and evolutionary.  This view necessitated that the active, living, creating, and redeeming Holy God of Old and New Testament be redefined as a deistic god that created matter, mechanical mechanisms and formative evolutionary processes that over time allows things to make themselves,  or a divine evolutionary force (pantheism) within nature, or be simply rejected by the more radical of the radical Enlightenment. (pp. 272-273 &544)

In the "new pagan" god-man centered cosmology, the gap between the Mind of God and the mind of man, and the supernatural and natural were closed.  Thereafter, the exalted mind of the god-man and the content of the mathematical-mechanical universe defined what method was appropriate to its illumination:

"If the universe is fundamentally mathematical and mechanical, then of course the method of illumination must be mathematical and mechanical. " (p. 545)

In the god- man centered universe, the redefined God's wisdom does not exceed man's wisdom.  This being so, Unitarianism, liberal Protestant theology, Roman Catholic Teilhardism, evolutionary theism, Hugh Ross's vastly popular progressive creationism, and all other forms of evolutionary Christianity as well as New Age pantheism are the products of the exalted wisdom of god-men who adopted a man-centered universe entirely in accord with their own capacities.

The approach to the Word of God followed suit, meaning that an evolutionary modernist understanding completely defines the 'new' approach to the interpretative deconstruction of the Bible:

"Since miracles had been excised from nature, they had to be removed from the text.  Since nature was entirely defined by mathematics, knowledge of mathematical-mechanical laws displaced prophecy, and so prophecy had to be removed from the text.  In fact, since there was, with pantheism, assumed to be an identity of the logos of nature with the Logos of God, scientists who studied the logos of nature provided the highest revelation possible, thereby demoting the revelation contained in the Bible as at best puerile.  All that was left, so it seemed, was the moral message of the text, and the focus on the Bible as merely moral reinforced its politicization." (p. 544)

All that is left is a desacralized book of moral messages for evolutionary modernist Christian intellectuals such as columnist Ross Douthat, leading Richard Dawkins to ridicule him for bracketing "Biblical fundamentalists" with atheists and accusing both of making the same mistake,

"...of thinking that the correct way to read the Bible is literally, as do Ken Ham or Al Mohler." (Ross Douthat doesn't understand atheism, Richard Dawkins, Oct. 5, 2011, whyevolutionistrue.com)
 
Douthat criticizes New Atheism said Dawkins, for thinking that we go after only the fundamentalist version of religion while "ignoring the sophisticated versions propounded by sophisticated theologians like John Haught and sophisticated intellectuals like himself" who see much of the Bible, particularly the Genesis account as metaphor.  Douthat makes this clear in a New York Times article:
 
"It was a peculiar spectacle, to put it mildly: An atheist [Coyne] attacking a traditionalist believer [Shea] for not reading Genesis literally. On the merits, Coyne is of course quite correct that some of the details of the Genesis story seem to contradict what science and archaeology suggest about human origins. (For instance, the claim that Adam and Eve were formed from the dust of the ground and a human rib, respectively, not from millennia upon millennia of evolution, the suggestion that they lived in a garden near the Tigris and the Euphrates, not a hunter-gatherer community in Africa, and  well, you get the idea.) But then again some of the details of the Genesis story seem to contradict one another as well, in ways that should inspire even a reader who knows nothing about the controversies surrounding evolution to suspect that what he's reading isn't intended as a literal and complete natural history of the human race." (Why Atheists Need Fundamentalists, Douthat, Oct. 4, 2011, New York Times)
 
Dawkins zeros in on the contradictions in Douthats' argument, pointing out that if Ken Ham, Dr. Albert Mohler, and other faithful believers, or 'fundamentalists' as Douthat labels them did not take the,
 
"...stories pretty literally, including the tales of Noah and the flood, the Genesis stories, the tale of Adam and Eve and their Original Sin, and, of course, the whole Jesus mythology (then) we'd have no creationism in America, and the story of Jesus would be a convenient fairy tale, like that of Santa Claus, rather than an object of universal veneration." (ibid)
 
Exposing Douthats' double-mindedness, Dawkins argues that while much of the Bible is dismissively relegated to the category of fanciful metaphor by Douthat,

"I'm sure that when he goes to Mass each week he recites the Nicene Creed, affirming his belief in these truths:
 
" Jesus is the son of God – God is the creator of heaven and earth – Jesus was the product of a virgin birth – The crucified Jesus was resurrected – Jesus will come again to judge us all – Our sins will be remitted through baptism – There's an afterlife for the good folks."

 
Dawkins then asks,
 
"Tell me, Mr. Douthat: are those allegories, too? When you mouth them in Church each week, are you saying what you really believe? If not, why do you call yourself a Catholic?" (ibid)

Douthats' embarrassing peccadillo exemplifies that of increasing numbers of modernist theologians, intellectuals and Christians throughout the whole body of the church who waver between serving the Lord and serving Baal:

"And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word."  1 Kings 18:21

In 1 Thess. 2:13 the Apostle Paul summarizes and clarifies the issue at hand, which is whether the Revealed Word of God is received by the Christian Church as the word of "enlightened" men or "for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe."  

 “Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge?....Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation?  Tell me, if you understand."  Job 38: 2-4

Dear reader, who do you place your faith in?   Is it in pride-inflated foolish modernists who with their scissors have cut apart the Bible and with their words without knowledge and vain pretensions set themselves up against the knowledge of our Lord?  They are the blind leading the blind into hell.  Or is it in the Lord Whose Word is Truth, even as He Himself is Truth, our Lord and Savior Who, 

"if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved?"  Romans 10:9

Awakening the Devil in Americans: Liberalism's Methodology of Evil

Kirsten Powers wrote that the root of nearly every free-speech infringement on campuses across the country is that someone—almost always a liberal—has been offended or has sniffed out a potential offense in the making. Then, the silencing campaign begins:

" The offender must be punished, not just for justice’s sake, but also to send the message to anyone else on campus that should he or she stray off the leftist script, they too might find themselves investigated, harassed, ostracized, or even expelled. If the illiberal left can preemptively silence opposing speakers or opposing groups— such as getting a speech or event canceled, or denying campus recognition for a group—even better." (How Liberals Ruined College, thedailybeast, May 11, 2015)

Whether we call them liberals, progressives, the left, socialist Democrats or America's Progressive Ruling Class, the bottom line is this: hard-core "elite" Liberals (Romans 1:30) are the dangerous and destructive ideological heirs of a rebellion against the God of Revelation and orthodox Christian theism that began as far back as the Renaissance eventuating in the proclamation by Nietzsche of the death of the Christian God (Jesus Christ God Incarnate) and cataclysmic eruptions of fire, brimstone and rivers of blood in the 20th century.   Longtime Hollywood insider and ex-liberal Evan Sayet agrees.   The very purpose of the modern liberal is the total destruction of everything that our Heavenly Father, true science, and Western civilization has ever created:

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

Whether they know it or not, America’s lower-level liberals, pride-inflated simpletons who delight in mockery and fools who hate knowledge (Proverbs 1:22) but are not of the so-called "elite caste," have been willingly initiated into a program of psychological manipulation, terrorism, destruction and wholesale murder.  This plan was utilized by the satanic terrorists---Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin, the Bolsheviks and 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.” 

Though publicly and with much shameless boasting liberals proudly describe themselves as scientific, evolutionary, forward-thinking, enlightened, and progressive, liberals by any name and "elites" in particular, are in reality:

"...religious fanatics who regard their opponents as sinners and miscreants and agents of civil darkness...when they engage an opponent it is rarely to examine and refute his argument but rather to destroy the bearer of the argument and remove him from the plan of battle." (The Surreal World of the Progressive Left, David Horowitz, FrontPageMagazine.com, 1/25/2008)

For our generation of lawless liberal barbarians and their "elite caste" masters there is no Trinity "above," no hell "below" no Moral Law, no immutable Truth, no sin, and no fear of judgment.   Therefore they are free to be evil: to think evil, speak evil  and commit acts of evil since there is only sovereign willful 'self' who knows only personal selfishness, ambition, physical lust, hate and envy (poneros).  Thus hacking babies apart in the womb is not sadistic murder but sensible family planning known as "choice," sodomy is no longer an obscene act of arrogant defiance of God's Law and all that's natural and life-affirming but just another evolving gender we must either tolerate and applaud or be damned and shunned if we don't. Moreover, "silencing campaigns" conducted by moral imbeciles are not infringements upon the rights of other people but much needed punishment inflicted upon the thoughts and words of stupid, un-evolved hominids who have injured the monstrously inflated pride of narcissistic moral imbeciles.  Moreover, ISIS is not a professional satanic terrorist organization sadistically butchering Christians and their children but freedom fighters, and Satanism, the worship of pure evil, is not evil but just another religion the First Amendment allows the free and open practice of while criminalizing orthodox Christianity :

 "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 )

Awakening the Devil

It was Karl Marx’s anarchist comrade Bakunin who provided the concrete program of psychological seduction and manipulation slavishly followed by America’s liberals.  It begins with temptation to sin and ends with destruction and death:

"In this revolution we will have to awaken the Devil in the people, to stir up basest passions.  Our mission is to destroy, not edify.  The passion of destruction is a creative passion." (Marx & Satan, p. 27)

Bakunin's program is an inversion and reversal of Proverbs 1:10:

My son, if sinners shall entice thee, consent not to them."  

Behind the pretense of concern for "gay" inclusion, "gay" marriage, a woman's 'choice,' evolution as science, global change, universal health care, gun control laws and tolerance of evil is envy and hatred (poneros) of the Trinity and Jesus Christ God Incarnate in particular together with hatred of His creation and His faithful image-bearers.  This burning hatred and envy issues in bloody fantasies of endless destruction and death.

Sayet affirms that in pursuit of their Godless fantasy, "elites" throughout Hollywood and media  together with influential liberals situated within the White House, Congress, academia, seminaries, Pentagon, and 'justice' institutions actively promote evil.  Thus,

"…..sin is their trade and business, and the constant course of their lives" as is actively persuading children "to join with them in the sins they are addicted unto, and are continually employed in…"

The responsibility of America’s Christian Church is to be true salt and light---a morally wholesome, edifying, strengthening, spiritually uplifting influence---but in the religious order devilish liberalism has successfully infiltrated, perverted, and dumbed-down increasing numbers of seminaries and churches over the entire denominational spectrum.  So rather than standing for the Revealed Word and against sin and evil, these institutions either adopt a passive, silent stance or actively embrace evolutionary science, sin and our paganized culture.   With respect to this, David Kupelian writes:

"Christianity---the deepest, most meaningful and awe-inspiring religion ever, the magnificent force behind Western civilization, and the transcendent hope of mankind's future---has been dumbed-down (it has become) a caricature, a comic-book religion (that produces) Christians who believe they have a ticket to heaven, and nothing else really matters...They live lives of shallowness and selfishness, of petty emotions and jealousies, of gossip and escape, of ego and pride, and sometimes of gross corruption and treachery.  The worst of them are prideful, selfish, and brazen....they drive other people crazy (and away from real Christianity) with their hypocrisy.  Such people, whether in family or business relationships (or) church leaders (or) leaders of nations, sow confusion, rebellion, and suffering everywhere they go." (Marketing of Evil, Kupelian, p. 234)  

Kupelian argues that the marketing of evil succeeds because the beguiling lies and the temptations to sin that Liberals seduce us with, appeal to the hidden, selfish part of us that we want to embrace, thus within vast numbers of Americans---including large numbers of those who call themselves Christians---liberals are successfully awakening the Devil, stirring up the basest passions.

Sayet believes this will ultimately result in widespread malevolent idiocy resulting in sadistic brutality, murder, breakdown and implosion of America followed by brutal tyranny.  In other words, there will be macrosocial evil, persecution and martyrdom. (The Politics of Poneros, the Sons of Belial, Macrosocial Evil, Persecution and Martyrdom‏

This will surely happen unless the Church repents of the life of pride, impatience, self-serving, pleasure-seeking, egotism and that,

"......utterly faithless part of us that has made all of us such absurdly easy targets for con men throughout the ages." (Kupelian, p. 240)

Little Johnny went to school, there to learn a brand new rule: No Longer Can Boys be Boys

"Exalting mankind to the status of deity....dates from the farthest reaches of antiquity, but its development into an ideology embracing the masses is a characteristic of modernity." (Idols for Destruction, Herbert Schlossberg)

From the days of Adam right down to our own time, the devilish belief that man is god has seduced millions. Early Church Father John of Damascus connects the idea that man is god with barbarism:

"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)

In this light it can be seen that the paramount religion of mankind is self-worship...of man as god, the individual truth and morals inventor (moral relativist), the god-man with power over life and death who determines who can live and who must die, as well as how much of anything another person may or may not have. Tal Brooke concurs, noting that historically there has always been an exoteric polytheism-pantheism for the general masses and a high level esoteric "advaitic" monism for the higher initiates. For initiates then:

".... the Great Lie (is) the foundation stone of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sufism, Jainism, Sikhism, Taoism, the Kabala, the Greek Hermetic, Eleusinian and Gnostic beliefs, Neo-Platonism, all the occult creeds from Theosophy and the Masonic orders to the Rosicrucian's (and) the New Age movement. The Great Lie is...the belief that man is God, that his true identity is the immortal self...that as God, he will never die (and) Sin and depravity are...illusions since this inner divinity is at man's core." (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, SCP Journal, Vol. 29:2-29:3, 2005)

The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylon as the post-flood center of both an organized nature religion based on the primordial heresy and as the first utopian or heaven on earth project. Babylon embraced the Great Lie. Its inhabitants claimed the title, "I AM." They were earmarked by their "advaitic monism," science of evolutionary magic-transformism, exalted priesthood, gnosis, secret initiations, sorcery, astrology, channeling, psychic-powers, familiar spirits, and hedonism. But the root source of this evil religion and its occult power was the Great Dragon himself....the Evil One. 

Modern Barbarian God-Men

In his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy," Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) notes that the two recurring themes of modern ideologies are monism and evolutionary conceptions. Man is god is at the root of these two themes, thus there is:

" defiance of God, pride unlimited, a yearning for enormous power and the assumption of divine attributes with a view to manipulating and shaping mankind's fate." (p. 227)

The first order of business in taking control so as to manipulate and shape mankind's fate is the murder of the Holy God Who spoke into existence ex nihilo all things seen and unseen and the reduction of His Revealed Word to prescientific myth.  Next, in order for god-men to create a new world and re-engineer a new man the present two-dimension (supernatural and natural) order of creation must be scientifically obliterated and reinterpreted as only one dimensional pagan monism under man's control. 

The engines of control are scientism, the instrument of man's will, and anti-supernatural, anti-creation evolutionary science, primarily Darwinism.   As the pillar of natural science, Darwinism is powerful magic wielded by a cult religion's sorcerers:

"(Darwinism is) nothing but a kind of cult, a cult religion....It has no scientific validity whatsoever. Darwin's so-called theory of evolution is based on absurdly irrational propositions, which did not come from scientific observations, but were artificially introduced from the outside, for political-ideological reasons." (Jonathan Tennenbaum, "Towards 'A New Science of Life,' Executive Intelligence Review, Vol. 28, No. 34, Sept. 7, 2001)

  Darwinism is a 'universal acid'  from hell in which God the Father Almighty and His entire order of being are in process of conceptual dissolution, a diabolical conjuration allowing god-men to conceptually dismantle:

" human individuality through the dissolution of individual conscience and consciousness, and then to replace these with the collectivity (monism) and coalesced consciousness (i.e., Christ Consciousness)." (Molnar, 227, emphasis added)

God-men Remake Mankind as Grotesque Machines

"Instead of Adam, our ancestry is traced to the most grotesque of creatures; thought is phosphorous; the soul complex nerves, and our moral sense a secretion of sugar." (Disraeli, quoted by John Passmore "A Hundred Years of Philosophy," p. 36)

With the triumph of natural science and Darwinism in the nineteenth century, the murder of the Holy Trinity and the obliteration of His order was cast in the cement of "enlightened" magic-science.   Henceforth,   Westerners would be cut off from God the Father and their own souls, thereby disrupting:

"the bio-psycho-spiritual unity of human consciousness...." (Authenticating the Activities of Jesus, Bruce Chilton and Craig A. Evans, 1999)

The modern secular-pagan "scientistic" West has almost succeeded in obliterating the souls of its' citizens and now seeks obliteration of the two sexes:

"Little Johnny went to school; There to learn a brand new rule; No longer could the boys be boys Or have their special trucks and toys; Only six, so young and tender, It's time for him to unlearn gender." (Here At School the Slant is Gay, cited in Our Gay Pride President, David A. Noebel)

Unlearning gender requires destruction of innocence via the brutal rape of mind, soul and eventually body.   Assisting in this evil are depraved barbarians completely lacking in moral or ethical standards and unmoved by the most obscene depravity except to enjoy perpetrating it:

"Parents in Florida were outraged upon seeing and hearing what their children were being taught in their 6th grade sexual education class.  Pornography being shoved down the throats of American 11 and 12 year olds. Check these pictures taken by one of the kids:   http://conservativepost.com/parents-outraged-check-what-happened-during-a-health-class-on-sex/

For our generation of god-men (barbarians) there is no Moral Law, no immutable Truth, no sin, and no fear of judgment and hell.   Thus they are free to be evil, to rape the minds of children, to destroy their innocence, unmake their gender and commit other hideous acts of evil since there is only sovereign, willful, and utterly depraved 'self' who knows only personal selfishness, ambition, physical lust, contempt and hate.

The Politics of Poneros, the Sons of Belial, Macrosocial Evil, Persecution and Martyrdom‏

"Political Ponerology" is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej M. Łobaczewski to an interdisciplinary study of the founders (i.e., Karl Marx) and supporters of 20th century totalitarian political regimes.     His study utilizes data from psychology, sociology, philosophy, and history to account for the propagation of man's inhumanity to man through such phenomena as terrorism, aggressive war, ethnic cleansing, ostracism, genocide, and despotism:
 
 "As many as 7 million Ukrainians were starved in Soviet Socialist dictator Joseph Stalin's artificial, forced famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. This is approximately the total population of Manitoba, Newfoundland, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island." (Inky Mark, M. P. Dauphin - Swan River House of Commons 2 June 1998, Famine-Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933)
 
 "Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)
 
 "... On one side, millions of starving peasants, their bodies often swollen from lack of food; on the other, soldiers, members of the GPU carrying out the instructions of the dictatorship of the proletariat. They had gone over the country like a swarm of locusts and taken away everything edible; they had shot or exiled thousands of peasants, sometimes whole villages; they had reduced some of the most fertile land in the world to a melancholy desert." (ibid, Malcolm Muggeridge, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)
 
 "Food is a weapon." (ibid, Maxim Litvinov - Soviet Commissar of Foreign Affairs)
 
 According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist and Socialist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were criminal enterprises in their very essence:
 
 "...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)
 
 A coalition of atheist pagan Jews (Bolsheviks) and atheist pagan Gentiles (Marxist Communists) systematically stole the personal property of Russians and sexually perverted their children and conditioned them to hate the Trinity, Jesus Christ God Incarnate in particular, as well as their own parents, the Christian church and their homeland.  The sons of Belial undermined and destroyed the traditional family, unleashed a holocaust of abortion, homosexualized culture, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of more than sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:
 
 "About 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union, a Russian commission reported this week. In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the country's mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyed" Clergymen were crucified on churches' holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled," said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. The commission prepared the report for Russian President Boris Yeltsin. "I was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter," Yakovlev said. "It was total cruelty." (paulbogdanor.com)
 
 "Persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism--mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Bolshevism--is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history....Attempts at "killing the soul" started only months after the Revolution of 1917." Persecution and martyrdom was, "several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed.   It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime." (New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com) 
 
 In this light we can understand why Lobaczewskis' original manuscript quickly went into the furnace just minutes before a secret police raid.  In 1984 the manuscript was reassembled, but according to Lobaczewski, its publication was blocked by technocratic globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski.  After half a century of suppression it is finally available.
 
 Though Lobaczewski's study is a clinically accurate description of the nature of human evil it falls into the error of attributing evil to biological causes rather than the sin nature of man.   Despite this failing, Political Ponerology is a shocking account of large scale evil super-heated by hatred of the Holy God and burning with envy and will to power---or what Lobaczewski terms 'ponerogenic processes'  that overtook modern Russia and have overtaken whole societies and nations since time immemorial.
 
 When ponerogenic processes have finally saturated a society's entire ruling class and opposition from morally convicted people has been crushed, then we are dealing with what Lobaczewski calls Macrosocial Evil or a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." (p. 121)
 
Ponerogenic processes are synonymous with the unfettered, vastly inflamed sin nature of man beginning with inflated pride issuing in covetousness, selfishness, ingratitude, jealousy, resentment and hate, all of which early Church Fathers combined into the cold-blooded vice known as envy.   Thus when 'macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon' has saturated a nation's ruling class and most of its society it means that a tyranny of evil fueled by poneros has overtaken it.   Poneros is:
 
"The passion which causes evil, the father of death, the first entrance for sin, the root of wickedness, the birth of sorrow, the mother of misfortune, the basis of disobedience, the beginning of shame. Envy banishes us from paradise....Envy made Joseph a slave. Envy is the death-dealing sting, the hidden weapon, the sickness of nature, the bitter poison, the self-willed emaciation, the bitter dart, the nail of the soul, the fire in the heart, the flame burning on the inside..." (Life of Moses, Gregory of Nyssa, quoted in Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. Aquaro, p. 74)
 
"Scripture combines envy with jealousy, covetousness and stinginess, into a single concept that is a manifestation of idolatry (narcissism) of self and belief that there is a limited supply of good." (ibid)
 
Scripture attributes poneros to the Evil One, the leader of all forces of evil.   The Evil One is the spirit of rebellion and negation, the father of lies, "the adversary" "the accuser,"  "calumniator" and undiluted essence of envy who works through the principle of negation and rebellion in the fallen souls of lawless natural men:
 
 "The evil man out of his evil treasure bringeth forth evil (poneros) things" Matthew 12:35
 
 Poneros  has played a part in human dynamics ever since the Evil One persuaded the envy-bitten Cain to murder his brother Abel, Judas to betray Jesus Christ and the Pharisees to crucify Him, and Saul to suddenly throw his spear at David in a murderous attempt at pinning him to a wall. (1 Sam. 18:11)  In fact, the envy-bitten Saul tried three times to kill David with a javelin (1 Sam. 18:10-11, 19: 9-10) and to bring about David's death by the Philistines. (1 Sam. 18:25)  
 
 Poneros is also the spirit animating British philosopher Adam Smith's sophistry, that is, his phony concern postured in sophisticated questions and 'evidence' such as,
 
 "Is having a loving family an unfair advantage?"  "Should parents snuggling up for one last story before lights out be even a little concerned about the advantage they might be conferring?"  
 
"Evidence shows that the difference between those who get bedtime stories and those who don't - the difference in their life chances - is bigger than the difference between those who get elite private schooling and those that don't." (Parents reading to kids blasted as 'unfair,' Joe Kovacs, WND, May, 2015)
 
 Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. captures the spirit of poneros in his brilliantly conceived short story, "Harrison Bergeron,"
 
 "THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General."   
 
 As a tyranny of poneros had overtaken and led to the degradation and implosion of ancient Greek society, an exploration of Greek thought with regard to types of envy will prove enlightening. The first type is 'zelos,' a kind of envy stirred up by any perceived superiority (inequality).  In the poem, 'Work and Days,' Isocrates presents the spirit of zelos as "with grim face and screaming voice, who delights in evil" and causes Decency and Respect to flee. (1)  The anonymous author "Michael Swift" warns of this very thing in a widely circulated article called "Gay Revolutionary."  In prose that chills the spine Swift warns the envied straight community that the men of Sodom shall be victorious,
 
 "..because we are filled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages...We too are capable of firing guns and manning barricades of the ultimate revolution....Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks."  (Spirit Wars: Pagan Revival in Christian America, Peter Jones, p. 255)
 
 Empowered by spineless, accommodating jellies throughout our seminaries, pulpits, government and courts, the envy-bitten men and women of modern Sodom maliciously terrorize Christian bakers, florists, bed and breakfast owners and other decent, law-abiding straight males and females, forcing them to either submit or be crushed even as the men of Sodom openly rape the souls and bodies of their sons and daughters in churches, schools, and elsewhere. (Envy and the Greeks: A Study of Human Behavior, Peter Walcot, pp. 2-3 from Death by Envy, Fr. George R. A. Aquaro, p. 12)
 
 As the Holy Triune God is the "moral monster" responsible for the poor choices, weaknesses, sin nature and failures of the self-pitying, self-absorbed and envy-bitten, zelos is also the spirit behind the 'murder' of the Christian God, the closing off of the supernatural dimension and the Way to Paradise with the requisite suppression of His Revelation to man, the miracle of Special Creation, Original Sin, Moral Law, immutable Truth, judgment, and hell. Thus zelos is the lying, hateful, intolerant spirit behind the elevation of evolutionary scientism above the inerrant Word of God. 
 
 Zelos animates back-stabbing gossip, slander, snooping, spying, tale-bearing, the politics of personal destruction as well as special rights and privileges for the so-called oppressed (envy-bitten).  Zelos demands redistribution of wealth, egalitarian sameness issuing in loss of gender identity (i.e., mother, father, husband, wife) in favor of gender-neutral terms such as 'partner.' It demands same-sex marriage, absolute inclusion and tolerance, 'legalized' illegal immigration, the mandated sexualization and perversion of our youth by pan-sexual and omni-gendered sexologists, and a hob-nailed boot viciously crushing the faces of envied "oppressors."  
 
Morally, zelos is the venom behind America's reigning Pharisaic legalism: political correctness, hate crime laws, speech codes, gender equality, economic equality, and sensitivity training.  In 'political' terms, green-eyed zelos is the spirit of green multiculturalism, green ecology, green sustainability, green 'family planning,' green global warming/cooling/change, green socialism and green diversity.
 
 In "Diversity': The Idol of Academia," Jack Kerwick describes diversity as a 'god' that is as educationally invidious as it is false:
 
"Diversity" is not just a good in the academic world. It is the supreme good, the one good before which all other considerations must yield...."cultural diversity" not only doesn't correspond to a rise in intellectual diversity; it invariably corresponds to a rise in political uniformity. This is crucial, for the promotion of "cultural diversity" is nothing more or less than the promotion of a left-wing ideological agenda."  (June 26, 2014 Jack Kerwick, Front Page Magazine)
 
Zelos in its every malignant, sadistic permutation is the green-eyed spirit behind left-wing ideology and its' totalitarian fantasy:
 
 "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." (Winston Churchill, British orator, author and Prime Minister during World War II, 1874-1965)
 
 "When I say that Marxism is based on envy, I mean that the glorious revolution of the proletariat...was really a promise to put a final end to all the conditions that make for envy." (Joseph Epstein, author and former editor of The American Scholar, from Truths about Socialism, Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)
 
After zelos come philotimia and hybris.   In Greek mythology, philotimia is narcissism--love of self, love of attention, love of self-affirmation, love of self-gratification-- while hybris is the arrogance, insolence, contempt, insult, shame, hatred and mistreatment of human objects of envy by a sadistic narcissist. In Greece, philotemia and hybris were on display when the gods and their earthly counterparts punished inferior 'subhumans' for usurping their authority as well as when they struggled amongst themselves for positions of primacy.   In America, philotimia and hybris are visible when America's left-right 'ruling class' god-men try to destroy each other in their vicious power struggles among themselves. These two green-eyed monsters, philotemia/hybris are on display whenever the god-men's lapdog media engage in vicious psychological bullying and other malicious forms of mistreatment of stupid, unevolved hominids --the hard-working middle class, especially the Tea Party and God-fearing orthodox Christians and faithful Jews---the so-called oppressors.  
 
 Philotimia/hybris is also the spirit animating the intolerant, hateful attitudes of evolutionary theologians toward defenders of the Revealed Word of God beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo. 
 
 Phthonos is the fourth type of envy/covetousness.  Phthonos seeks to deprive envied 'other' of possessions, honor, status, spiritual gifts and virtues.  Phthonos for example, is the diabolical Darwinian reductionism of man in his Creator's spiritual image to ape.  It is the green-eyed totalitarian spirit of Agenda 21 together with save the earth and re-wilding schemes that elevate crocodiles, trash fish, and other creatures above the welfare of human beings.

Phthonos animates carbon footprint schemes, population control plans, passive euthanasia (refusal of health care to targeted Obama care recipients), the attempted theft of Bundy's ranch and other private property and resources.  Phthonos is driven not just to ostracize and confiscate but to use psychological manipulation (i.e., lies, false guilt, slander, propaganda, scape-goating) and other terroristic force to take or deprive 'other' of whatever is coveted/envied.  
 
 Phthonos will even drive a man (i.e., Cain) to murder his own brother, to "murder" the Holy God (i.e., Nimrod, Karl Marx) and Jesus Christ God Incarnate (Nietzsche).
 
 After ancient Greece had been overtaken by the spirit of poneros, the egalitarian, collectivist, or leveling impulse served to help relieve an envy-torn culture by leveling all men down to the lowest common denominator.  This was enforced by character destruction and the threat of ostracism.
 
 "...one had to watch not only the malevolent actions of envious friends and enemies, but the very real threat of ostracism by the democratic community.  Philanthropy had much less to do with (love of man) as it had with....avoiding other people's phthonos of one's success."  (Death by Envy, p. 14) 
 
 The fifth type of envy is vaskonia or Evil Eye (ophthalmos poneros) and means something even more malignant than phthonos.    Vaskonia bespeaks an evil spirit associated with demonic possession and the malign touch or glance of which leaves a soiled imprint and implies instant victimization and death.   Vaskonia is inherently sudden, meaning one wrong word, one wrong expression, or the impulse of a moment is all it takes to become the victim of the Evil Eye.
 
 As a whole, Scripture combines envy with hatred of the Holy God and one's brother, which means that there can be no love whatsoever where there is envy and hatred in one's heart.
 
 Today increasing numbers of Americans at every level of society, on both left and right, Christian and secular, are controlled by their passions unfettered from the restraint of transcendent moral law.   Adding to the problem are culturally relevant church models attended by thousands of Americans that cater to felt-needs and self-indulgent emotional feel-goodism (2 Tim. 4: 1-220).  Thus America is "a nation ruled by its passions," said Reb Bradley, author of "Born Liberal Raised Right."  This is why  heinous acts,
 
 "...of casual disregard for life, unheard of fifty years ago, have become a familiar item on the evening news; students killing classmates, children murdering their playmates....these gruesome crimes are merely symptomatic of a breakdown of moral fiber..."  ( pp. 2-3)
 
  The most frightening aspect of America's descent into moral imbecility, narcissism, heresy, apostasy, pathological lying, and lawlessness is that our society is being overtaken by "ponerological processes."   Through the White House, State Department and other federal agencies, legislatures, media, Hollywood, courts, academia, pentagon, seminaries and even pulpits, the spirit of poneros is encompassing our society, suppressing and demonizing orthodox Christians, faithful Jews and other morally informed people, and overspreading our nation with a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon."  This will lead inevitably to a tyranny of evil, persecution and martyrdom:
 
 "The New Martyrs' example and their legacy is precious, because in this, 21st century, it will be the turn of Western Christians to experience martyrdom. In Western Europe they will be persecuted by the unholy alliance between the postmodern, Christophobic velvet totalitarianism of the therapeutic hyper-state, and a resurgent Islam which already accounts for a quarter of all newborns in France. In the United States they will be persecuted for refusing to accept the destruction of the moral foundation of the society, currently epitomized by abortion, by "gay marriage," and by the ever-expanding speech and thought codes. Instead of being thrown to the lions or sent to Siberia, the resisters will be subjected--by some monstrous mechanism devised by an ever more activist judiciary--to the mandatory "sexual diversity orientation sessions," or feminist-led pro-abortionist "right-to-choose education workshops," or "immigrant rights sensitivity training," after which the continuing refusal to recant will lead to compulsory "therapy" and forced medication. This scenario is not farfetched on either side of the Atlantic. Western Christians should be prepared for martyrdom."  (ibid, Srdja Trifkovic)

Judgment
 
 In "Idols for Destruction" Herbert Schlossberg proposes that we use idolatry as a framework for comprehension of the evil and persecution sweeping over and through our post-Christian society. (p. 34)   The biblical explanation for moral imbecility and narcissism in connection with the end of society resides in the concept of judgment upon an idolatrous people (Ro. 1:28-32):  
 
 "Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you...saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known..."   (Deut. 13: 13; Judges 19: 22, 20:13; 1 Sam. 1:16, 2:12, 10:27, 25:17, 25:25, 30:22; 2 Sam. 16:7, 20:1, 23:6; 1 Kings 21:10, 21:13; 2 Chron. 6:15, 13:7)
 
 Scripture depicts a societies' people as either having submitted themselves to the Triune God or else as idolaters (sons of Belial) who having rebelled against Him have been delivered by Him over to worthless, useless, hardened, loveless minds.  This is how the Old Testament portrays Israel.  Israel had become an evil nation of idolaters fully deserving the judgment the Lord brought against it.  Its' rebellion was accompanied by a turning to idols (which can also be idols of mind such as scientism and evolutionary cosmogonies) and this idolatry brought the nation to it's' end.
 
 The Decalogue shows that the beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over the Holy Trinity and neighbor). The will of the proud man is not in submission to the Trinity but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride leads to contempt for truth, law, wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, institutions and other people in combination with any or all of the following vices: pathological lying, treachery, murderous thoughts, gluttony, greed, covetousness, lust, hate, cheating, promiscuity, sadism, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, adultery, theft and the dehumanization of other people resulting in psychological and physical slavery, population control schemes, abortion, brutality, terror, mass-murder (genocide) and man-made famines.
 
 In the final analysis, malice and envy towards the Holy Trinity compels man to destroy creation and to annihilate his God-given soul/spirit by imagining himself as 'one' with the evolving universe of matter and energy. This is the definition of damnation, said Fr. Aquaro. Hell is not a punishment meted out by a hateful Holy God as some would think, but an absolute refusal of a pardon granted all mankind. It is impossible to receive good from a person one envies, and so it is that one cannot be saved if one resents the Holy Triune God. This is the message of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-32 when the elder brother refused to enter the house upon his brother's return. It is also the underlying meaning of CS Lewis's pointed observation that the door to hell will be slammed and locked from inside:
 
 "The man wakes from the final struggle of death, in absolute loneliness...Not a hint, not a shadow of anything outside his consciousness reaches him...Soon misery will beget on his imagination a thousand shapes of woe, which he will not be able to rule, direct, or even distinguish from real presences." (C.S. Lewis: George MacDonald, an Anthology, p. 61)

1. Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. Aquaro

2 Thessalonians 2: 10-12: When the Day of Grace is Over

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

 There comes a time, said John MacArthur, when God abandons men, where He lets a people go, lets them go to the consequences of their own sinful choices, useless ideologies, evolutionary cosmogonies, scientism as an instrument of man's will, occultism, spiritism, and sodomy as an alternative lifestyle. They refuse to accept His counsel.  They spurn all His reproof, as Proverbs says, so they eat the fruit of their own choices and they have to be satisfied with the useless devices they have chosen. Of the Pharisees Jesus said, “Let them alone, they are blind leaders of the blind,” Matthew 15:14, the most terrifying words, “Let them alone.”  (A Nation Abandoned by God, John MacArthur)

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

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

This deluding influence can be pictured as darkened, impenetrable bubbles enshrouding the heads of the abandoned.  Thus whenever one of our Lord's faithful, compassionate flock attempt to shine light into one of the bubbles a great shrieking hue and cry, cursing, blasphemy, and gnashing of teeth is heard coming from deep within the bubble accompanied by a shrill voice ordering the compassionate one to:

"Get that stinking  #!!*## light out of here you stupid, #!!** unenlightened, #!!! intolerant, homophobic,  anti-scientific, anti-evolution *#!! hater!!!!" 

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

Psychopaths: Given Over by God to the Wrath of Abandonment

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

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

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

Psychopathy: What Is It?

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

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

Psychopaths are manipulative, and because they hold other people in contempt, they freely use their victims for purposes of self-gratification. Other common characteristics include:  moral relativism (no absolutes), an overwhelming sense of entitlement, parasitism, psychological and physical bullying, casual cruelty, pleasure at inflicting pain (sadism), insensitivity, dishonesty, pathological lying, aggression, impulsiveness, promiscuity, and irresponsibility .

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

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

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

Moral imbecility, another hallmark of psychopathy, is the inability to recognize right from wrong independent of disordered passions (i.e., pride, jealousy, covetousness, lust, envy) and attendant impulses and compulsions. To the degree by which the moral sense is corrupt, so is reason. The greater the degree of corruption the more depraved is reason, meaning that moral imbecility can easily shade into diabolism.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In "The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It" Angelo M. Codevilla writes that while faithful Americans pray to God the Father Almighty Who created all men in His spiritual image, Americas' evolved God-hating god-men:

"...prays to themselves as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image..." (p. xix)

Because the idolatrous Ruling Class elevate scientism and evolution above the Revelation of God and reject creation ex nihilo in favor of anti-creation evolutionary conceptions they are enabled to look down upon the hated "masses" and view them not as people but as apish, grunting hominids, so naturally they believe Americans are completely unfit to run their own lives.

Moreover, as transcendent morality and unchanging truth are anathema to them then lying, sophistry and other forms of deception are entirely within reason. According to Codevilla, since no standard,

"....of right and wrong (is) beyond the Ruling Class'....self-conception, its greatest concern has been to denigrate the American people's devotion to God, because the Ruling Class accepts no standard it cannot control." (ibid, p. xx)

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

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

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

Sophistry is the devilish religion of the depraved Ruling Class. Sophistry says man evolved from star-dust, is a free-thinker, and the inventer of his own truth and morality even though sophistry denies the reality of truth, morality and reality.   Sophistry says depraved man can unmake and then remake himself,  thus he is free to divinize himself as in days of old. Moreover, males can be females, females can be males, or they can be androgynous (transgender).   Additionally, and though our Heavenly Father and then later Pope St. Gregory the Great (540-604) say otherwise (Romans 1: 26-27), modern men of Sodom claim that sodomy is now an alternative lifestyle.  But according to God Almighty and Gregory the Great:

"Sacred Scripture itself confirms that sulfur evokes the stench of the flesh, as it speaks of the rain of fire and sulfur poured upon Sodom by the Lord. He had decided to punish Sodom for the crimes of the flesh, and the very type of punishment he chose emphasized the shame of that crime. For sulfur stinks, and fire burns. So it was just that Sodomites, burning with perverse desires arising from the flesh like stench, should perish by fire and sulfur so that through this just punishment they would realize the evil they had committed, led by a perverse desire."   ("The Saints on Sodomy: Why the Church Fathers were Harsh on Homosexual Sex, Tom O'Toole, barbwire, Mar. 24, 2014) 

In this light we can see why sophistry's' favorite dictum is "God is dead" and their favorite Scripture is "judge not." The only judgment is the judgment against moral judgment. The only sins are the ideas that the Lord Almighty really did speak and create ex nihilo thus sin and hell really do exist. The only truth is the idea that truth does not exist. Evil is the idea that evil exists. The greatest evil of all however, is to dissent against the Ruling Class.

Sophists are shameless braggarts who love to boast of their scientifically enlightened reason, yet sophistry says reason is actually escape from reason. By way of unreason (irrationality), depraved sophists claim that God is dead and evolutionary theory is absolutely true, but sophistry says that truth does not exist and words have no fixed meaning.  As there is no truth in sophistry, God Almighty is not dead but rather sophists are the Walking Dead  (Dan. 5:25).

According to Budziszewski, sophistry is all the rage in contemporary America, even though it prefers longer, more intellectual sounding names to dupe the gullible. Thus for example, it calls itself postmodernism, epistemological relativism, antifoundationalism, pragmatism, situational ethics, sensitivity training, pluralism, multiculturalism, interfaith, evolutionary humanism, transhumanism, positivism, rationalism, and progressivism.

What Causes Psychopathy?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 The Revealed Word of God Almighty reveals the cause of psychopathy. It says that when God Almighty gives hardened, unrepentant sinners and God-haters who consistently and deliberately suppress the truth about His existence (no matter how strong the evidence proving He exists) over to the "wrath of abandonment" they can no longer think straight.   Though their intellect remains intact their conscience is seared (depraved), making their reasoning useless for pursuit of the good and true.  Additionally, their souls become materialized (dried out and turned inward), making them prisoners of their own cosmically-inflated egos, covetousness, gnawing envy, lusts, perversions, greed, gluttony, and hate as well as of afflictions of the mind — belief in silly, incredibly stupid things (i.e., evolutionary cosmogonies, abiogenesis, panspermia; multiverses; parallel universes); paranoia, fear of the void, anxiety dreams, compulsive thoughts of murder and other evil fantasies.  

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

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

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

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

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

Lawless natural men have,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In the Face of America's Dominant Pagan Polytheism Who is Still On the Lord's Side?

America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of mankind, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, "I am the Lord your God...I am the Truth..." and "in His own image He made them, male and female He made them.....I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..." All else flows from this seedbed. Today however, a new Gnostic-paganism has displaced the Holy Triune God, our founding Biblical worldview, immutable truth, Moral Law, and everything good and natural. Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' it declares that the Biblical God is scientifically-passé  and that now every man is god and his own morals-and gender maker.
 
 Millions of human-gods, each with their own personal truths and moralities, and many evolving 'genders'---this is pagan polytheism issuing in chaos and ultimate breakdown ending in tyranny.
 
For more than eighty years the guiding hand behind the rise of new pagan polytheism has been a broad, loose-knit coalition of technocratic Gnostic pagans, occult mystical pantheists and atheist Jews popularly known as Marxists, Progressive Liberals, Fabian Socialists, Secular Humanists, liberal theologians, trans-humanists, New Age and other fellow-travelers.  This loose-knit coalition control the ACLU, GLSEN, GLAAD, Democratic Progressive Caucus, Democrat Stone Walls and Republican Log Cabins, PlannedParenthood, the NEA, CodePink, Sierra Club, and in fact, a vast, interlocking matrix of counter-revolutionary activist organizations and front groups including non-governmental organizations that interface with the UN; international progressive think-tanks such as Club Rome and Club Budapest; the Temples of Understanding in Washington DC and New York; and Lucis Trust, formerly named Lucifer Publishing.
 
Translated into global politics, the Gnostic pagan and mystical pantheism briefly outlined above is evolutionary Transnational Technocracy, a global Gnostic movement whose agenda is the imposition of a spiritually socialist, theocratic New World Order as stated some years ago by the futurist thinker, Jeremy Rifkin, an adviser to the European Union since 2002 and head of the largest global economic development team in the world. In 1983 at a point in the maturation of the 60’s cultural revolution, he declared in A New Word– A New World:

“We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else’s home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of preexisting cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces…..We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible for nothing outside ourselves, for we are the kingdom.” (“Paganism in Today’s Culture,” Dr. Peter Jones)  
 
It's in this light that political correctness with its speech codes and hate crime laws are seen as modern-day Pharisaic legalism. It's no coincidence that the primary enforcers of this legalistic evil are organizations such as the ACLU, described by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, as being 'reminiscent of a temple board meeting' of atheist Jews: 
 
  "The spokesmen for groups like the Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Veterans of America or National Gay and Lesbian Task Force are all too often Jewish. Many of the member organizations of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice are Jewish. The membership of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)...is disproportionately high in Jews."  (America's Real War, Rabbi Daniel Lapin)
 
"Surely one of the most bizarre and inconprehensible phenomena in contemporary political life is this assault that secular Jewish representatives are carrying out against religious Christian conservatives...They are targeting Christian political candidates and the Christians who back them..." 
 
 Secular Jews are the biggest anti-semites of all. Yet, like the Pharisaic-hypocrites they are, they hide behind the Holocaust and hurl vicious allegations of antisemitism against all who resist their program of evil:
 
"Let's not pretend that this is merely politics; it is bigotry...To attempt to intimidate (Christians) into being afraid to speak openly of their beliefs is...one of the most foolhardy things the Jewish community has ever done. It is immoral (and) hypocritical." (ibid, Rabbi Daniel Lapin)
 
Many years ago, a Russian rabbi pleaded with one of his congregants, Leon Bronstein, to avoid involving Jews in the Bolshevik Revolution. Bronstein, known to his followers as Leon Trotsky, defiantly informed the rabbi that it was his "Jewish values" that guided him toward socialistic revolution for the overthrow and destruction of the 'old order,' Christianity and Orthodox Judaism. The rabbi famously responded, "Yes, it is the Trotskys who make revolutions, but it is the Bronsteins who pay the price."  (ibid)
 
From Karl Marx to Trotsky and the murderous Bolsheviks---all are atheist Jews who rejected the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Moses and embraced instead, modernized Gnostic pagan and pantheist 'wisdom traditions,' and Illuminist ideologies otherwise known as the politics of revolution---progressivism, nihilism, socialism, communism, scientism, positivism, and materialism.
 
In other words, said Rabbi Lapin, Jews who abandon Jewish tradition usually embrace socialism (or one of its variants such as liberalism) as their new religion. Similarly, the same thing occurs when gentiles abandon Christian tradition. When they succeed in their destructive goals, it is often the faithful, both faithful Jews and orthodox Christians, who are left to face the horrific consequences.
 
In the essay, "Everything Must Change," Dr. Peter Jones, adjunct professor at Westminster Seminary, provides a time-line of events briefly detailing America's abandonment of its' Christian tradition and its' replacement by pagan and pantheist Gnosticism
 
According to Jones, after the solid theological days of early 20th century Evangelicalism, which defined itself according to the great fundamentals of the faith, much of Christianity turned to a more sensational, experience-oriented "fundamentalism" that got caught up in the power of television (with its inevitable scandals), mega-church commercialism and cheap shot religion evidenced in such expressions as "God-hates-fags." The culture began to see Evangelicalism as a mindless, even dangerous religion.  This paved the way for the sixties Cultural Revolution.
 
 Appearing at first to be another generational round of student dissent, the Sixties movement actually redefined the nature of man and the world.  Moreover, it unleashed rebellion against every vestige of authority. In the place of authority, envy-fueled egalitarianism reigned, aided by postmodern deconstruction. Now all truth became relative and so-called free-sex became resistant to normative heterosexual gender roles and has since morphed into a utopian vision for a pan-sexual/omni-gendered society.
 
The pan-sexual culture of love-not-war, of LSD trips and Eastern meditation, of diversity and tolerance has in our own time become the gateway for "can't-we-all-get-along" interfaith neo-paganism, with its techniques of yoga, mysticism, Enneagram, meditation and new contemplative and/or centering prayer.
 
America's post-Christian, drug, porn, sex-soaked omni-gendered occult pagan polytheist paradigmn has become the dominant worldview of contemporary culture, appealing to the social and intellectual elite, in whose hands are the levers of social control (media, politics, business). These opinion-shapers, with little opposition, are now articulating a religiously pagan worldview for the life of the planetary community. These cultural progressives see no problem with mixing "church" (pagan religion) and "state" (electoral politics).  
 
Meanwhile, some Christians have discovered a more biblically-based traditional theology and practice. Others, calling themselves Emergent or "Progressive" have refused the route of past historic Christian wisdom, and have gone in the only other possible intellectual direction, "Christian" liberalism. With Liberal apostasy, they change everything about orthodoxy, denying creation ex nihilo in favor of evolutionary theism and the atoning death of Christ for sinners and the great solas of the Reformation in favor of elements of pagan spirituality-global interfaith, subjective mysticism and monism.
 
With faithful, orthodox Christianity now seriously marginalized,
 
"... many younger Christians are seeking social acceptance and popularity with the dominant post Christian culture via an atonement-less, syncretistic social gospel. The world's rejection of Christianity is cleverly blamed on narrow old-fashioned traditions, not the scandal of the Cross. The seduction of this pseudo-gospel, promoted by major Christian leaders and Christian publishing houses, is powerful."
 
As an icecap of Gnostic-pagan pan-sexual socialism moves relentlessly across America, sowing apostasy, occultism, discord, envy, hate, imbecility, immorality, crime, and unnaturalness, it is not good news for the faithful, nor for what yet remains of Americas traditional order, freedoms, and Constitutional rights.  But one thing will never change said Dr. Jones:
 
"JESUS REIGNS. His death for sinners remains forever efficacious. He is building his truly global church, and, as Martin Luther knew, "he will win the battle." The serious question now is, as another hymn asks: "Who is on the Lord's side?"

The Men of Sodom Declare War on the Body of Christ

According to New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, church leaders must be made “to take homosexuality off the sin list.” (Christians ‘Must Be Made’ to Bow, Rod Dreher, The American Conservative, Apr. 4, 2015)

At the imperious demand of sin hardened idolatrous men, the body of Christ (Eph. 2: 19-22) must be made to reject the Revelation of God, His created order, immutable Truth, and Moral Laws, all of which the Apostles of Christ, the Fathers of the Church, and virtually every faithful Christian has affirmed as true. But now faithful Christians are to be forced by the idolatrous usurpers of the throne of our Lord to change His Revealed Word, thus changing what we faithfully affirm.

And just how do Bruni and his militant Social Justice Warriors plan to force us to repudiate our beliefs?

" We are going to find out. Indiana and Arkansas showed that most Americans don’t much care about religious liberty — and in fact, people like Bruni and the newspaper he works for have contempt for it, at least when it is practiced by “conservative Christians.”  (Dreher)

The declaration of war against the body of Christ is about far more than just love, happiness and marriage rights.  It is really about the disintegration of man’s dignity as the spiritual image bearer of the Holy Triune God.  This insidious process was begun during the Enlightenment when neo-pagan and mystical pantheist Deists and fellow free-thinkers elevated ‘reason,’ science, and mechanistic laws of nature above the One God in three Persons, thereby taking the Holy Trinity away and depersonalizing and reducing man to an emergent product of the evolving universe of matter and energy:

"....you took God away from them (and) your espousal of an absence of self is the most unique and fearsome claim you made...You turned from Hinduism because it said there was an essential self, which they called the atman." (Jesus to Buddha in The Lotus and the Cross: Jesus Talks with Buddha, Ravi Zacharias, pp.59, 67)

Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if all that exists is matter and energy 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)

If all that exists is matter and energy then it logically follows that there is no source for life, consciousness (reason, conscience and will), the two sexes, human dignity and worth, or for that matter the much bragged about "reason of free-thinkers."  Without the Holy Trinity, meaning drains into meaninglessness and man is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before the stupidity and depravity of Enlightenment neo-pagans, pantheists and fellow travelers paved the way for the West and then America to plunge into the abyss. 

Henceforth, man is no longer a person, nor is he or she either male or female but rather a dehumanized sexless aggregate of matter or psychic energy in motion while the powers and abilities of his mind are nothing more than energies and chemicals acting on grey matter. In short, within the closed-system of "new" paganism and mystical pantheism, man is nothing but an evolved hominid or bio-machine, a conscious product of energy acting on matter over millions of years, a process called evolution.

The disintegration of man’s dignity as a creature of the Holy God of creation is not the result of science, as Western pagan and pantheist evolution worshippers falsely claim, but rather the product of a depraved (seared) conscience and will turned toward evil that justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of freedom. It is hostility toward and outright hatred of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit and His image-bearers disguised behind linguistic sophistry.

Androgyny: The Pagan Ideal

Following hard on the heels of the disintegration of man's dignity is the rapid loss of male and female distinctions as they quickly drain away into androgyny.  This in its' turn  necessitates the recasting of marriage, family, Scripture, orthodox Christianity and the use of toddlers, older children and even babies for the sexual satisfaction of depraved pan-sexual and omni-gendered adults.   This hideous evil will not only be tolerated and prized, but as the pagan sage Xenophon declared,

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

Writing during the student revolution of the 1960s, Francis Schaeffer already saw that a transformation of consciousness---meaning God Almighty was delivering hardened sinners and God-haters over to worthless, useless, hardened, loveless minds (Ro. 1:28-32)---was overtaking the Western mindset, moving it inevitably away from the Christian ideal to the depraved pagan model:

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

With the Holy Triune God dead in their hearts, then so too are the fall, sin, immutable truth, universal moral absolutes, heaven, hell, judgment and the entire structure of morally grounded presuppositions, norms, standards, principles, law, sexual ethics, social institutions and society built thereon.   In the resulting void, everything—no matter how evil– is now possible (Psalm 36: 1-4).  

In an article entitled, "Hundred Years of Pedophilia," Olavo de Carvalho warns of evils just over our horizon:

"In Greece and in the Roman Empire, the use of minors for the sexual satisfaction of adults was a tolerated and even prized costume.(sic) In China, castrating young boys to sell them to rich pederasts was legitimate commerce during millennia. In the Islamic world, the rigid morals that ordain the relationships between men and women was not rarely compensated by the tolerance with homosexual pedophilia. In some countries this lasted all least until the beginning of the 20th century, making Algeria, for example, a garden of delights for depraved travelers (read the memoirs of André Gide, "Si le grain ne meurt"). ....In all the places where the practice of pedophilia receded, it was the influence of Christianism — practically alone — that freed the children from this awful rule. .....But this had a price. It is as if an undercurrent of hate and resentment had gone through two millennia of history, waiting for the moment of revenge. This moment has arrived."  (olavodecarvalho.org)

And these are the crimes against nature said Augustine,

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

"Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah---from the Lord out of the heavens.  Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities---and also the vegetation in the land."  Gen. 19: 24-25

Though dark days have come upon us do not fret because of evil-doers, for they will be cut off, while those who wait for the Lord will inherit eternal life in paradise:

"Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more; And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there. But the humble will inherit the land And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity." (Psalm 37:9-11)

The 20th Century: Beginning of the Age of Demonized God-Men

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites...We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end... The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?”   O’Brien, in 1984, by George Orwell

The Party or Big Brother is a pagan magician, a man-god who has acquired powerful psychic powers and gnosis through actualization of the cosmic World Soul within his own mind.  Thus he creates his own world and meaning in every living moment out of his own divine consciousness.   In other words, since the substance of God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos (Gnostic pantheist conception of World Soul, divine Mens, or Mind), including the unconscious mind of man, then by means of self-induced trance states, brain-altering drugs, transcendental meditation and other Magic Ways, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls matter because he controls mind. The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man.

This way of thinking is captured by Orwell in his book, "Nineteen Eighty-Four" in which negation of the physical world is an integral part of the social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his tyrannical Party.  At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that in the end the Party would announce that two and two made five and,

"...you would have to believe it.  It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later; the logic of their position demanded it.  Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy." ("The New Spirituality and its Hallmarks, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 30:4-31:1, 2007, p. 19)

God-men are out in the open today. They have successfully initiated a devastating assault upon the whole body of the Christian church and by extension, upon Western and American society in ways that to previous generations would have seemed unthinkable.      A few examples of Western and Eastern god-men are Karl Marx, Helena Blavatsky, Alice Baily, sundry Indian god-men (i.e., Rajneesh. Muktananda, Sri Chinmoy), Teilhard de Chardin, and L. Ron Hubbard.  Each god-man either established an ideology, or founded or serves as the foundation of "New Christianity" (Teilhard) or powerful cults that have drawn and continue to draw souls to their doom.  Each one is a type of Ringwraith, a cosmic god-man who harvests souls for the kingdom of the Evil One.  

The following essay focuses on two Ringwraiths--- Friedrich Nietzsche and Aleister Crowley, the founder of Thelema .

Thelema is an Eastern influenced occult spiritual philosophy of pantheist monism developed by Crowley,  a 20th century British writer, ceremonial magician and Satanist.  Pantheist monism asserts the divine-human link:

 "All is ultimately One.  This doctrine is fundamental to mysticism, both eastern and western.  God, man, and the universe are fundamentally one.  The Creator-creature distinction, so crucial to orthodox Judaism and Christianity, is specifically denied.  The so-called 'spark of divinity' in each man supposedly leads all men back into oneness with God (the Universal Force)....The body, the mind, the soul are one within the physical forces...In each entity there is that portion which is a part of the Universal Force...God is impersonal; only man is truly personal.  This is (a) central theme of monist systems.  Man is the personal agent of the impersonal God."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 207)  
 
Within the system of pagan and pantheist monism, God is an evolutionary Force or Energy to be managed, a power to be tapped by initiates and enlightened god-men.  This impersonal Force that drives the universe's evolutionary destiny was referred to centuries ago in the European magical tradition as the divine Mens, or Mind.  It was cosmic in scope and through careful study and practice (occult or magic science) the magician could control and channel its' power.   The ultimate goal was to acquire powerful psychic powers and gnosis through recreation or actualization of the cosmic Mens within the human mind. (1)
 
In the main, Thelema is based upon a spiritual encounter that Crowley and his wife had in Egypt in 1904 with an evil spirit calling itself Aiwass.  According to Crowley, Aiwass contacted him and dictated a text known as The Book of the Law or Liber AL vel Legis, which outlined the principles of Thelema.
 
The Thelemic pantheon focuses primarily on a trinity of horned deities adapted from ancient Egyptian pantheist monism who are the three speakers of The Book of the Law: Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The three speakers predicted that the 20th century would mark the ending of the Christian God and Christian theism and the beginning of the Aeon of Horus, an age of apostasy into pantheist monism, creative destruction, force and fire wrought by demonized god-men and their masses of disciples--- a self-absorbed, destructive generation, the followers of a new ethical code, an anti-morality summed up as, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law."  
 
In "Our Savage God: The Perverse Use of Eastern Thought," R.C. Zaehner, Spalding professor of comparative religion of Oxford, discusses the monistic (collectivist/oneness) goals of Hinduism and Buddhism and how the Satanist Aleister Crowley applied monistic philosophy to his own ends.  Crowley, said Zaehner, belonged to an age-old monistic tradition which saw the Eternal (Supreme Soul, Void, Abyss, Quantum Vacuum) as the ultimate unity in which all opposites were reconciled, including God with man, man with woman, woman with man, good with evil. (2)
 
Zaehner also discusses Crowley's attainment of Buddhist "enlightenment," the results of which were "revised" by his spirit guide "Aiwass."   Having assisted Crowley to go beyond good and evil, Aiwass now taught him indulgence.   Aiwass, Crowley's "Holy Guardian Angel," taught "him that absolute bliss could only be attained by enjoying the good things of this world to the full---riches, power, and above all sex, the earthly counterpart of the transcendent union of the opposite." (ibid)
 
As a result, Crowley partook of tantric kundalini sex-magic rites ostensibly for "spiritual" ends.  His "Ordo Templi Orientalis" (Order of the Oriental Temple or O.T.O.) became a branch of Western Tantra.  Indeed, Crowley seems to have been the principal agent responsible for introducing the perversion of Eastern sex magic to the West.  In a text entitled "Yoga: Immortality and Freedom," the yoga authority and University of Chicago professor Mircea Eliade discusses the amoral orientation of Tantra:
 
"The tantric texts frequently repeat the saying, "By the same acts that cause some men to burn in hell....the yogin gains his eternal salvation."....This...is the foundation stone of the Yoga expounded by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita (XVIII, 17).  "He who has no feeling of egoism, and whose mind is not tainted, even though he kills (all) these people, kills not, is not fettered (by the action)."  "And the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad (V,14, 8) had already said: "One who knows this, although he commits very much evil, consumes it all and becomes clean and pure, ageless and immortal."  (ibid, p. 112) 
 
 In addition to his spirit-guide Aiwass, another important mentor of Crowley's was Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher who declared the death of the Christian God and called himself the Anti-Christ:
 
"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) 
 
Nietzsche argued for the nonexistence of the Christian God as follows:
 
"I will now disprove the existence of all gods. If there were gods, how could I bear not to be a god? Consequently, there are no gods." (3)
 
Each major book of Nietzsche's is, in a different way, an attack on the Christian God and Christian faith. The central axis of Nietzsche's philosophy is always the same---he is as centered on Jesus Christ as Augustine was, only he centered on Christ as his enemy. 
 
With "Ecce Homo" Nietzsche willingly embraces lies and dark fantasy while in "The Genealogy of Morals" he claims that Biblical morality was invented by the "weak," meaning the Jews and then the Christians, to weaken the strong. Thus the sheep convinced the wolf to act like a sheep. And this is unnatural, argues the Anti-Christ who embraces lies and dark fantasy such as "Whoever must be a creator always annihilates’ (4)
 
Creation and destruction are as inseparable to Aiwass as to Zarathustra: the creator must always destroy. Thus it follows that a new world order is always preceded by the destruction of the old, hated order:

"The man who breaks… tables of values, the breaker, the lawbreaker; …he is the creator."(Nietzsche)
 
One of the central ideas taught by Zarathustra is that since the ‘self’ is self-evolved then Zarathustra's disciple must take responsibility for who he is, for creating himself and his own laws. The implication of this idea is that the old ‘self’ must be destroyed in order to make way for the new ‘self’:

You must wish to consume yourself in your own flame: how could you wish to become new unless you had first become ashes!’ (Nietzsche)
 
The aftermath of the destruction of "self" is insanity (demonization) followed by possession. This is experienced by power yogis when kundalini current finally reaches full voltage with the result that the so-called Soul of the Universe supposedly occupies the body but is in fact an evil spirit residing in the body of the 'god-man:'

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

 
In "Beyond Good and Evil" the Anti-Christ presents his "Master morality," the anti-morality summarized by Crowley as "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." What this means is that since demonized God-hating liars have conceptually "murdered" the Holy Triune God and sealed up heaven, demonized Masters have a natural right to do whatever they please, for everything is permissible. Whatever a Master commands becomes good from the mere fact that the Master wills it:

"Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”   ('Paedophilia is natural and normal for males,' Andrew Gilligan, telegraph.co.uk, Jul 2014)
 
"The Twilight of the Idols" explores the consequences of the murder of the Christian God. With His death is liberation from the supernatural Mind, Authority and Will that has transcended the mind and will of man who is now god and decrees the death of eternally existing Truth, Moral Absolutes, sin and agape love. With the murder of the Triune God, there will no longer be a heaven for the sheep since all of these "idols" will die now that loveless men have murdered the Holy God the Father Almighty.
 
Who will replace the murdered Triune God? The demonized Superman, the new Master of the Universe. Nietzsche's masterpiece, "Thus Spake Zarathustra," celebrates this new god. Nietzsche called Zarathustra the new anti-Gospel and told the world to "throw away all other books; you have my Zarathustra."
 
Among contemporary intelligentsia and global 'god-men' (trans-humanists) intent upon ushering in a worldwide Scientific Dictatorship, a sustainable green pagan heaven on earth created by Masters for Masters, two of the most widely-read and acclaimed thinkers today are the sadistic murderer, the Marquis de Sade, and Friedrich Nietzsche, the Anti-Christ. Many twentieth century totalitarians were disciples of Nietzsche, including America's evolutionary green Progressives and Hitler.
 
In "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," William Shirer recounts Hitler's frequent sojourns to the Nietzsche museum in Weimar. Commenting on Hitler's veneration for Nietzsche, Shirer writes:
 
"There was some ground for this appropriation of Nietzsche as one of the originators of the Nazi Weltanschauung. Had not the philosopher thundered against democracy and parliaments, preached the will to power, praised war and proclaimed the coming of the master race and the superman--and in the most telling aphorisms? (Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, 1959)
 
Though Nietzsche harshly criticized socialism, his evolutionary thinking and monist (collectivist) political and social thoughts also harmonized well with Marxism.
 
In "Nietzsche: A Precursor to Hitler?" researcher Phillip D. Collins writes that in addition to the continuity of pagan political and social thought that pervaded totalitarian socialism, Nietzsche also provided a religious component. The infamous declaration, "God is dead," is but a segue for the introduction of a new Babylonian god merged with mystical Eastern pantheism. This god of evolutionary forces has had, and continues to have, numerous manifestations, as is evidenced by the following delineation by W. Warren Wagar:
 
"Nineteenth-and early twentieth-century thought teems with time-bound emergent deities. Scores of thinkers preached some sort of faith in what is potential in time, in place of the traditional Christian and mystical faith in a power outside of time. Hegel's Weltgeist, Comte's Humanite, Spencer's organismic humanity inevitably improving itself by the laws of evolution, Nietzsche's doctrine of superhumanity, the conception of a finite God given currency by J.S. Mill, Hastings Rashdall, and William James, the vitalism of Bergson and Shaw, the emergent evolutionism of Samuel Alexander and Lloyd Morgan, the theories of divine immanence in the liberal movement in Protestant theology, and du Nouy's telefinalism--all are exhibits in evidence of the influence chiefly of evolutionary thinking, both before and after Darwin, in Western intellectual history. The faith of progress itself--especially the idea of progress as built into the evolutionary scheme of things--is in every way the psychological equivalent of religion. (Wagar, 106 -07)"
 
Nietzsche's demonized self-evolved Superman was but one more link in an ideational chain connecting Illuminist Luciferian revolutionaries such as Hegel, Comte, Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Crowley, and contemporary New World Order Masters of the Universe. The central theme is a green religious faith in humanity's evolutionary ascent towards godhood. Collins writes that this is by no means new:
 
"This doctrine of transformism dates back nearly 6,000 years, finding its crucible in Mesopotamia. It was the religious doctrine promulgated by the ancient Babylonian and Egyptian Mystery cults."

Masonic scholar W.L. Wilmshurst verifies this contention:
 
"This--the evolution of man into superman--was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries" (Wilmshurst, W.L. The Meaning of Masonry. New York: Gramercy, 1980)
 
Nietzsche's Superman represents the pinnacle of biological and spiritual evolution. At the apex of the anti-creation, anti-human evolutionary process, Superman would "overcome" his own fleshly humanity---his mortality, his conscience, human weaknesses and limitations. Just as this post-human condition represented godhood for ancient Mystery Religion initiates, so it represented godhood for Nietzsche, Hitler, Crowley, inner circle Masons, contemporary Transhumanists, Spiritual Transhumanists, occult spiritual New Agers and their apostate Christian counterparts who are even now rewriting the Bible so it will reflect evolutionary thinking.
 
Inherent in this ancient anti-creation, anti-human belief are Nietzsche's Western pagan, Eastern pantheist, and neo-Gnostic teachings that the fall of soul into the material realm was either inexplicable or explained as punishment. At any rate it was a plunge from being as one with or an aspect of the Divine Substance (also God, divine Mens, Brahman, Void, Quantum Void) into the material realm of distinctions, or binary. The Fall then is not into sin as a result of disobedience but rather into matter. Salvation means either reabsorption into the Divine Substance or attainment of godhood by way of an evolutionary process controlled by illumined adepts.
 
Nietzsche's version of gnosis resulting from his mystical encounter with Zarathustra, as with Crowley, is the demonic "transvaluation of values" and the enthronement of divinized-self as the final anti-Christ, anti-moral, anti-tradition, authority while earth becomes the divine kingdom of the totalitarian demonized Masters of the Universe.
 
In a larger context, this means that the absolute freedom (license) increasingly exercised by contemporary Western and American god-men and their masses of followers in the name of scientism, evolution, moral relativism, absolute equality, open-minded tolerance and man-made rights (i.e., "gay" marriage, pedophilia) is actually the destructive license which perverts the true meaning and purpose of morally-principled freedom. Absolute freedom enslaves god-men and their followers to their dark side, or sin nature, thus leading them into the anarchy of concupiscence and self-gratification ending in hate, paranoia, violence, and murder.
 
The 19th century apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky foresaw the devastating consequences of absolute freedom that would usher in planetary spiritual socialism during the age of demonized god-men.
 
Out of the surfeit of arrogant conceit, self-indulgence, violence, hate, envy and murder exacerbated by blasphemy and unbelief said Dostoevsky, will emerge a new man, a miserable man anxious to be saved from himself and the madness of others, hence ready to surrender his absolute freedom for safety, earthly bread, peace, a soothed conscience and a modicum of comfort derived from sin sanctified by his Masters. (Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 179)
 
Demonized god-men and their followers will progress from the tyranny of sin and evil spirits to the tyranny of the Anti-Christ, the psychopath par excellence, for out of the shattered,
 
"... spiritual and social order emerges the new ethic of absolute submission to absolute power." (ibid)
 
And so begins the final chapter of man during the terrible age of demonized god-men.
