Pope Francis: First it was Anti-Creation Evolution. Now it's Phony Climate Change Science

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, just what is it and why do collectivists (globally socialist green pagans, Technocrats, Gaia-worshippers, Luciferians, et al) promote it?

Answer:
 
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
 
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
 
The common enemy of humanity is man. 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 fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.” Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations
 
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
 
The world is being actively transformed by a spiritually 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)
 
According to Patrick Wood, our existing price-based economic system is being reinvented with new and untested ‘green’ economics theories such as carbon footprints. Carbon footprints supposedly equal the amount of carbon dioxide allegedly produced by driving your car, running your refrigerator and small appliances, and cutting your grass, for example. If you use too much, and your carbon footprint is too big, green Technocrats either want the government to punish you or ration the amount of energy you are allowed to receive. The ultimate goal is that the personal energy consumption of every human being should be closely monitored and controlled.
 
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)
 
There is a time for everything, including the weather, which changes seasonally and sometimes daily. The people most in touch with the vagaries of weather are those such as farmers, who live closest to nature. Their knowledge (scientia) is sensible and poses no threat to our flourishing as opposed to the phony science of global change/climate science, which if accepted without question means forceful imposition of a spiritually pantheist, communalistic totalitarian social order which was known as Marxist Communism during the 20th century. While 20th century Communists and Socialists annihilated in excess of one-hundred million men, women and children on behalf of their agenda today’s totalitarians speak in terms of billions. In order for spiritually 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.   

Just recently Pope Francis joined the growing ranks of anti-creation evolution-embracing theologians when he publically embraced  evolution 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 spiritually pantheist worldview, 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 and the hideous idea that humans are guilty of causing climate change for which genocide is the answer.    Yes indeed, ideas have consequences.

Gnostic Chiliastic-Evolution: Lucifer's Plan of Salvation

Using the former Soviet Union as an example, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyers describes Communism as,

"The state form taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world."    Communism is "the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

Communism is a secular, philosophically materialist form of heretical Protestant (pantheist) liberalism's inverted exegesis grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary proclamation of a coming new order grounded in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress (from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, man and then finally god-man) and in the perfectibility of this fallen world.

Chiliasm in Greek means "thousand years" and is primarily a God-less version of the millennial belief expressed in some Christian denominations, and literature, that there will be a Golden Age or Paradise on Earth where "Christ will reign" prior to the final judgment and future eternal state, primarily derived from the book of Revelation 20:1-6. 

Communism, like its' contemporary Technocratic and occult New Age counterpart, is the evolutionary chiliastic expression of a coming Golden Age and is,

"...the culminating hubris of Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation.  It is scientism gone political." (ibid)

In "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," highly-respected political philosopher Eric Voegelin (1901-85) identifies modern Gnostic movements running the gamut from Comte's positivism, progressivism, Hegelianism, Masonry, Marxist Communism and Nazi Socialism to Schleiermacher's doctrine of faith, modernism (Protestant liberalism), and Luciferian theosophy.     

Helena Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy, leading Masonic thinker and important formulator of chiliastic evolution, wrote in her book, "The Secret Doctrine, " volume II,

"....it is but natural...to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind.  For it is he who was the 'Harbinger of Light,' bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah...and (was) the first to whisper: "in the day ye eat thereof ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil"---can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour..." (Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243, 513)  

"And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the "Lord of Phosphorus," and Lucifer, or "Light Bearer," is in us: It is our Mind---our tempter and redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism.  Without this principle...we would be surely no better than animals."  

Many other humanist speculators have formulated chiliastic versions of evolutionism that like Blavatsky's posit an inverted exegesis.  They include philosophers and  lapsed Christian thinkers such as Henri Bergson, Jean Gebser, Alfred North Whitehead and Teilhard de Chardin as well as esotericists and occultists  Max Theon, Rudolph Steiner, C.W. Leadbeater, Luciferian theosophist Alice Baily;  Hindu teachers Swami Vivekananda and Sri Aurobindo and integral theorists Edward Haskell, Arthur Young and Ken Wilber. (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 34)

Chiliastic-evolutionary systems are modern forms of ancient and very "elitist" pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnosticism in which salvation is attained through the 'elitist' knowledge of Gnostic teachers (i.e., contemporary  spiritual guides, gurus, certain 'scientists') possessed of the knowledge of the Gnostic cosmogony, or evolutionary anti-creation account and worldview.

Benjamin Wiker observes that the modern Gnostic 'scientific' cosmogony is a secularized, mathematical formula,

"..entirely stripped of the supernatural (and grounded in a secular understanding) of nature, science and philosophy that laid down the presuppositions on which Scripture scholarship came to rest...Little (can be) understood about the rise of modern biblical criticism if close attention is not paid to the great cosmological shift that occurs in the seventeenth century...The two occur as part of one revolution because the shift in the meaning of nature includes human nature as well." ( Politicizing the Bible: The Roots of Historical Criticism and the Secularization of Scripture, 1300-1700, Wiker & Hahn, p. 257)

Systematized chiliastic-evolutionary speculations  have so far produced every bloody utopian politico-religious movement of the 20th century and underpin contemporary occult-pantheist New Age and Technocratic globalist hopes and visions of today.

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)

The Black Book's authors point to the Darwinian "biological and zoological strain of thinking" as the engine of evil that proved itself to be a most effective means of denying the humanity of Communisms millions of victims. 

"This strain of thinking," explained Stephane Courtois, "is why so many of the crimes of Communism were crimes against humanity, and how Marxist-Leninist ideology managed to justify these crimes to its followers." (The Black Book of Communism; p. 751)

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

These reprobate Gnostic-pagan god-State governments systematically dehumanized and murdered millions of men, women, and children in order to create an imagined earthly Eden purified of evil, said Riggs, and this is clearly irrational.  In this sense, leftist ideology is an atheist religion with the look of a religious inquisition. 

 Klaus Fischer puts it this way:   "Totalitarianism represents the twentieth-century version of traditional religiosity; it is in many ways the secular equivalent of the religious life.  Unless this crucial point is captured, the quintessential nature of totalitarianism will elude us." (ibid)    

 This "totalitarian religiosity" is grounded in a dehumanizing evolutionary cosmogony that reduces mankind to aspects of the evolving universe on a par with slugs, weeds, and apes.  This evil religion continues today as a "scientific" secular, politico-centric faith,  

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

The Coming of Lucifer's New Age Collectivism 

Lee Penn calls our attention to the United Religions Initiative that with the Gaia initiative represents the religious facet of the coming Technocratic New World Order.  The URI is a UN organization that to a significant extent is animated by New Age Luciferian-spirituality. Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to New Age theology which is a syncretistic stew of Liberal Christianity, Theosophy, Spiritism, the Ancient Mysteries, Eastern mysticism, Wicca, Goddess worship, and adulation of Lucifer.

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

New Age spirituality relies heavily on the spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Penn notes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes:

1. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom.

2. Proclaiming that we humans are gods and that death is not real

3. Advocacy for extreme population control, including eugenics and euthanasia

4. Utter contempt for traditional religions — with concentrated scorn directed at Judaism, evangelical Protestantism, and Roman Catholicism

5. Forecasting a pending (and for them, desirable) "selection" of mankind, in which the progressives enter the New Age and the reactionaries face extinction. For the New Age Apostles of "progressive" Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution."
(ibid, p. 7)

Speaking through Hubbard, her spirit guide "Christ" prophesied in 1995 that the Rider of the Pale Horse will use the "sword" as one of his means to "kill those who choose to remain self-centered." (ibid, p. 322)

The meaning of "self-centered" is briefly defined in a document mandated by the U.N.-sponsored Convention on Biological Diversity, the Global Biodiversity Assessment.  This document explicitly refers to Christianity as a faith that, rather than making God and humans one with nature, has instead set God and humans "apart from nature," a process in which nature has "lost its sacred qualities."  The document states: 

 "Conversion to Christianity has...meant an abandonment of an affinity with the natural world..."  (Al Gore, The United Nations and the Cult of Gaia, Cliff Kincaid, americasurvival.org., 1999)

In other words, because Christianity holds that there is an unbridgeable gulf between God and man and nature that is only breached by Jesus Christ then man does not share the substance of God as pantheism holds, thus god is not within man but apart from man. According to Christianity man is radically different from God and atonement or mediation is achieved only through Christ, who rose from the dead. 

By contrast, Luciferian philosophy and the philosophy of Gaia hold that the evolving universe of matter and psychic energy is God, and that by experiencing or even worshipping nature, humans can attain oneness with God.  Some followers of Gaia believe that humans, after death, are reincarnated into non-human forms. Cliff Kincaid comments:

 "U.S. taxpayers are being forced to subsidize a new form of state religion which holds that natural resources have to be protected for the sake of Gaia, a so-called Earth spirit.  This religious movement, which has cult-like qualities, is being promoted by leading figures and organizations such as Vice President Albert Gore, broadcaster Ted Turner, and the United Nations....Those promoting the Gaia concept have no qualms about using the full force of government, even the international resources of the United Nations, to impose their beliefs on the rest of us.  If they are successful in their drive for "sustainable development" to protect Gaia, they could stifle economic growth and promote a drastic decline in the American standard of living."   (ibid)

All modern Gnostic movements share the same chiliastic goal:  a coming "new order" purified of all evil, that is, all faithful Christians and Jews who refuse to become one-with the evolving universe of matter and energy.   Purification extends as well to all previous moral standards, sexual ethics and traditions---seen as relative to a particular stage in the ongoing process of evolution.  These will be forever changed just as all distinctions between life forms and gender will be blurred in the idea of evolution from molecule to man and woman to androgynous he-she ('gay") and god-man.  In the same way, all distinctions between nations and religions will be blurred in the chiliastic vision of this-worldly perfection.

Together with chiliasm, evolution is a,

"...deep-seated primordial force, which seems to capture people quite apart from their conscious attitudes and reasoning (because) it's been drilled into everyone from the cradle, and therefore is very hard to bring out and look at rationally." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p. 35)

Frank Baumer concurs and observes that evolution 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)

Evolution is the anti-creation gospel of an unholy spirit, thus is the antithesis of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo. So powerful is its' hold on millions of modern Western minds that it has successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism. With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.

For all Westerners who are perhaps uncomfortable with, offended by, or are outright hostile toward the personal Holy Triune God and His plan of salvation the devil's gospel provides them a chiliastic plan of salvation and a substitute deity---evolution---the  animated  force of nature which men believe they can control and direct.  Through scientifically controlled and directed  evolution, they imagine they are destined to realize unimaginable spiritual advances.

The Viciousness in Back of Politically Correct Deceptions

In "Scott Walker’s insidious agnosticism," Dana Milbank  fires back at Scott Walker, the Wisconsin governor and Republican presidential hopeful, who when asked by The Post’s Dan Balz and Robert Costa on Saturday whether President Obama is a Christian said, "I don't know." (The Washington Post, Milbank, Feb. 23, 2013)

According to Millbank, the correct answer is yes: Obama is Christian, and he frequently speaks about it in public. Balz and Costa presented Walker with this information to give him a second chance to answer but he declined.

This is insidious, fumed Milbank, and goes beyond last week’s questioning of Obama’s patriotism, because it allows Walker to wink and nod,

" ...at the far-right fringe where people really believe that Obama is a Muslim from Kenya who hates America. The governor is flirting with a significant segment of the Republican primary electorate: those who have peddled the notion (accepted by 17 percent of Americans at the end of Obama’s first term) that Obama is a Muslim."

Is Obama a Christian and just what or who is the "far-right fringe"?     For two decades Obama attended Rev. Jeremiah "God Damn America!" Wright's temple of hate and iniquity.  Does this make Obama a "Christian"?   Only if the evil one, the father of hate and lies is a "Christian."    Moreover, in his recent defense of the ISIS butchers who beheaded Christians, crucified them and cut their children in half Obama made his monstrous contempt for faithful Christians as obvious as Milbank's hatred of "far-right fringe" Americans.  So who are the terroristic "far-right fringe," the "enemies of the State"?   According to Obama, all Americans who love Jesus Christ, hold tight to their bibles and their guns.    Good, decent, God-fearing, hard-working Americans in other words.  Pamela Geller comments:

"Obama’s war on “countering violent extremism” turns inward – on Americans. CNN reported Thursday that “a new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists and comes as the Obama administration holds a White House conference to focus efforts to fight violent extremism.”   

"The DHS report unveils the Obama doctrine – ignoring the jihad and targeting the right – in a deliberate demonization of an increasing number of Americans who understand that our rights are being usurped and that the U.S. government has been hijacked by a collective of destroyers and anti-American operatives. This is not new. Obama made these same vicious accusations in a similar DHS report in early 2009. It is a strategy."

“Some federal and local law enforcement groups,” CNN says, “view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to – and in some cases greater than – the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.”  (Obama Stormtroopers Ignore Jihad, Target Right, Geller, barbwire.com, 24 February, 2015)

What do Obama and his diabolical storm troopers, Karl Marx, Darwin, Lenin, Freud, Nietzsche, Sartre, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Sanger, Herbert Marcuse, Dewey, "death of God theologians," and Jeremiah Wright have in common?   Burning hatred of virtue, goodness, decency, righteousness, life and  above all, of the God of Revelation. 

 The living God of Revelation said Peter Hitchens,  

 “….. is the leftists’ chief rival..."  Christian belief, by subjecting all men to divine authority and by asserting in the words ‘My kingdom is not of this world,’ that the ideal society does not exist in this life, is the most coherent and potent obstacle to secular utopianism.” (The Rage Against God, Hitchens, p.134)

 And what is diabolical purpose of "politically correct" sophistry, whether that of Obama, Wright, Milbank , Richard Dawkins or any of the vast legion of malicious sophists who dominate and pollute our minds and society with their damnable lies?   It is not to testify to the truth but to dominate, cause confusion, fear, humiliation and a false sense of guilt, thus the less their lies correspond to reality the better. When the victims of liars are held up to shame by the liars themselves and forced to remain silent and even better—accept a burden of false guilt— they not only lose their courage and sense of integrity but in accepting the guilt open themselves to further demonization and terroristic crucifixion.  Moreover, to remain silent in the face of obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, thereby compromising and polluting our own conscience.  As the black heart of haters is the worship of lies in pursuit of power at any price, the more compromised and polluted our conscience the easier it becomes for the evil to dominate, control and manipulate us.

The Lawless One: Psychopath Par Excellence

Roy Hazelwood was one of the original profilers when the Behavioral Science Unit was first developed at Quantico. He served with the FBI for twenty-two years, taught courses at the Academy, the University of Virginia, the University of Pennsylvania, the U. S. Military Police CID, the Southern Police Institute and is also a board certified forensic examiner and a commentator for The Forensic Echo.  Hazelwood is now Affiliate Professor of Administrative Justice at George Mason University and has appeared as an expert on criminal investigations on numerous radio and television shows.

In his book, "Dark Dreams" Hazelwood discusses an infinite number of deviant sexual behaviors, different combinations of sexual behaviors and dark fantasies that can be merged into a single crime. In the chapter titled, "The Infinity of Darkness" he examines the role that fantasy plays in sexual crimes and how offenders act out those fantasies using wives, girlfriends, and other human prey as well as inanimate objects. Other chapters deal with bringing the fantasy to reality in crime, sexual sadism, serial murder, ritualistic and impulsive behavior, serial rape and, of course, profiling.

One of his favorite chapters is titled "Am I God?"  It deals with the role of narcissism in sexual crimes and with one particular criminal who wrote a lengthy manuscript in which he described four murders in detail, and because of his power over life and death, questioned whether or not he was God." (Roy Hazelwood: Profiler of Sexual Crimes trutv.com)

Hazelwood observes that most successful sexual sadists are narcissists who believe they are superior to society in general and law enforcement in particular. They come to believe they can't get caught, so they engage in greater and greater risk taking. This serves two purposes: to prove they are superior and to maintain the "high" they get from committing the crimes.

As a Christian, Hazelwoods' profound insight into the mind of sexual sadists is grounded in St. Augustine's view of man as the three-part spiritual image-bearer of the Holy Triune God as well as his teaching on sin, which Augustine says is not caused by the flesh (bodily/soulish senses) but by the spirit (intellect, will). All sin is of a spiritual nature said Augustine.

Hazelwood studied St. Augustine's writings where he spoke of the five steps that men and women take to act in a sinful way. Sin originates in the mind (spirit), and then moves to the senses for approval. The consequences are considered, the will makes a decision to act, and the mind rationalizes the behavior. Hazelwood realized that if he replaced the word sin with the word crime he could apply it to his work and lectures:

"The sexual criminal fantasizes about a criminal act, and if the idea is pleasing to his senses, touch, sight, etc. he considers the consequences of what might happen and then decides to act. Finally, he rationalizes his behavior for having committed the crime...I wouldn't have done it if..."

Hazelwood adds that:

"....sexual fantasy is nothing more than the mental imagery of a desired event. You conjure up in your mind something you want to do. Fortunately for society, most of us do not act on those fantasies. Yet some do, with horrendous results."

Sexual sadism is a spiritual problem, therefore Hazelwood discounts current criminal reform treatment programs.  These programs are grounded in the erroneous Darwinian idea that man is an evolved ape together with Freuds' fatalistic explanation 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.    

The truth about sexual sadism is that it is freely chosen "immediate gratification" said Hazelwood, adding that he once asked a serial rapist,

"If the death penalty was the punishment for your crime, would you still have committed the offense?' He told me that he would have."

Sexual sadism, said Hazelwood, is a rationalized willful choice that,

 "...goes back to the idea that there are no absolutes, the infinity of darkness." 

Sexual sadism belongs to the category known today as psychopathy. Psychopaths are sometimes described as conscienceless, meaning their conscience is so filthy and polluted it is in effect dead. And no talk-therapy or medications can reawaken conscience, which is a component of the spirit.

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

The Scientific American reports with alarm that psychpaths are,

"....overrepresented in prisons (and) research also suggests that a sizable number of psychopaths may be walking among us in everyday life. Some investigators have even speculated that "successful psychopath” (meaning) those who attain prominent positions in society may be overrepresented in certain occupations, such as politics, business and entertainment." (What "Psychopath" Means)

And let us not overlook the authors of the article, 'After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?" Dr. Alberto Giubilini and Dr Francesca Minerva, who with a total lack of conscience, empathy, and remorse, cold-bloodedly advised that:

"Parents should be allowed to have newborn babies killed as it is no different from abortion (because they) are not 'actual persons' and do not have a 'moral right to life..." ("Killing of newborn babies is acceptable, say doctors," independent.ie)

 If instead of "psychopath" the phrase "man of lawlessness" is used, 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
 
The Lawless One is Satan's earthly representative, the psychopath par excellence described by Paul as the 'man of iniquity, son of perdition' or 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 and Nietzsche), but at the bottom of his heart (he) preferred himself to Him. (And God) 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 Antichrist "had no hostility toward Jesus...but (like Mahomet) he saw in Him merely the greatest of his own predecessors." Since I have superceded Him, "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 (narcissism) and moral relativism are characteristic of his perversity and the reason for his unbelief in God. He in fact believes that he is God incarnate among men. He worships himself, makes himself equal to God and holds the power of life and death in his hands. The Lawless One is a powerful seducer, so powerful in fact that even believers will be deceived.
 
The Lawless One suffers the same envy of God that transformed Lucifer into a demon, Satan, 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 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 and covetousness quickly inflating to envy, are the common bonds linking Satan, with increasing numbers of his earthly representatives, from the Lawless One to all who have been infected with the same venom of the serpent.

Americans: Depersonalized Mental Robots

Though Susan Mazur is an evolutionist, she nevertheless acknowledges the unresolvable problems surrounding evolution and natural selection in her book, “The Altenberg 16: An Expose of the Evolution Industry.”  Mazur writes that though a new wave of scientists are questioning the role of genes and natural selection the fact that the Darwin industry is "in bed with government" causes them to say nothing in public.  Mazur comments:
 
The commercial media is both ignorant of and blocks coverage of stories about non-centrality of the gene because its science advertising dollars come from the gene-centered Darwin industry. At the same time, the Darwin industry is also in bed with government, even as political leaders remain clueless about evolution. Thus, the public is unaware that its dollars are being squandered on funding of mediocre, middlebrow science or that its children are being intellectually starved as a result of outdated texts and unenlightened teachers.” (“Desperate attempts to discover ‘the elusive process of evolution,’ reviewed by Walter J. ReMine, Creation Ministries International, pp. ix, 20)
 
Lower level evolutionary humanists and powerful Technocratic global socialists have made a faith out of evolution for three overriding reasons.  First, because they do not want the supernatural Creator, Original Sin together with free will, immutable truth, moral absolutes, heaven, and hell to exist:
 
"The leading principle of Utopian religion is the repudiation of the doctrine of Original Sin."  H.G. Wells, A Modern Utopia, 1905
 
Thus they seek to replace super-naturalism with naturalism (paganism) which leads to the replacement of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo with naturalistic evolutionary cosmogonies; power from Above with power from below (the void); He made them male and female with androgyny (the pagan ideal); Resurrection with reincarnation; immutable truth and moral absolutes with moral relativism; Biblical sexual ethics with pornography, sodomy, rape, incest, pedophilia, pederasty, zoophilia; the traditional family with alternative families; private property with communalism; and God-given individual rights with group privileges granted by the Technocratic Masters of the Universe.

Darwinism has done all of this and more.  First, it has replaced the Genesis account with a geometricized, mathematical closed system (cosmogony) shaped and controlled by men, destroyed the foundations of supernatural Christianity, inverted the order of creation and depersonalized human beings: 
 
“Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin’s theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma.” (Anton Pannekoek, “Marxism and Darwinism,” translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

Second, in seeking a naturalistic mechanism for biological evolution Darwin destroyed the possibility of nature as a source of law when he enthroned randomness as the operational basis of nature.   In this way he revived the ancient pagan idea of chaos as regenerative.   Also known as a Cosmic Egg and today as the Big Bang, according to China's Pangu Legend

"In darkness and chaos, a cosmic egg is formed. Two forces — yin and yang — act on the egg, which cracks and gives birth to Pangu, a being who over thousands of years separates the sky and the Earth, and eventually becomes one with the universe (his head is the mountains, his breath the wind, his sweat the rain)."   (The Big Bang, and other explanations of universe, AP, online source yahoo.com, March 21, 2013 )
 
Then there is what may be described as an "elitist" tendency.   Like Darwin,  Western transnational socialists are fueled by a strong desire to see themselves as 'better,' more 'highly evolved' than other people, thus Darwin's idea that if man came from apes then he can be treated like an ape is immensely gratifying to super inflated 'elite' egos whose depraved conscience justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of freedom in the furtherance of science.  Thus human apes can be experimented on, vivisected, tortured, sterilized involuntarily and made subject to infanticide, euthanasia, and other population control schemes as well as to the highly gratifying mind control techniques used by Communists on human guinea pigs.
 
It was close to fifty years ago that Rev. Richard Wurmbrand presented his testimony regarding Communist exploitation of Christianity, mind control experiments and physical torture before the Subcommittee to Investigate the Administration of the Internal Security Act and Other Internal Security Laws, of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C. Also present were Senator Thomas J. Dodd presiding, Jay G. Sourwine, chief counsel; Benjamin Mandel, director of research; Frank W. Schroeder, chief investigator; and Robert C. McManus, investigations analyst.
 
Christians were psychologically and physically tortured in ways that mocked their faith said Wurmbrand.  In the first of two horrifically evil examples, Wurmbrand describes how a young Christian was tied to a cross:
 
"Twice a day the cross was put on the floor and 100 other cell inmates by beating, by tortures, were obliged to fulfill their necessities upon his face and upon his body. Then the cross was erected again and the Communists swearing and mocking "Look your Christ, look your Christ, how beautiful he is, adore him, kneel before him, how fine he smells, your Christ." (Communist Exploitation of Religion, Congressional Testimony of Rev. Richard Wurmbrand)
 
In the second example Wurmbrand testified that after being beaten a Catholic priest was given a plate of excrement and one of urine and forced to say,
 
"...the holy mass upon these elements, and he did it. And I asked him afterward, 'Father, but how could you make this?'  He was half mad. He answered to me: 'Brother, I have suffered more than Christ. Don't reproach to me what I have done.' And the other prisoners beaten to take holy communion in this form, and the Communists around, 'Look, your sacraments, look, your church, what a holy church you have, what fine is your church, what holy ordinance God has given you." (ibid)
 
But these tortures were as nothing in comparison with brainwashing, said Wurmbrand.  They put psychotropic drugs "in our food" to completely break the "power of will" in order to produce "delirium of self-accusation" and to brainwash Christians.  In this drug-induced state suggestions were implanted within Christian minds:
 
"...communism is good," but "Christianity is dead, Christianity is dead, Christianity is dead. Nobody more believes in Christ, nobody more believes in Christ, you are the only fools....Your children hate you. You have nobody to love in the world. You are the only fools. Give up faith. Nobody is more Christians. Christianity is dead." (ibid)
 
From the start of the progressive satanic rebellion against the supernatural Triune God, 'elite' socialists have been in hot pursuit of mind, speech and behavior control techniques.    By 1928 they already formed an invisible controlling power. In his book, "Propaganda," (1928) Edward Bernays reveals their existence:
 
"Those who manipulate the organized habits and opinions of the masses constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of the country....The technical means have been invented and developed by which opinion may be regimented." (The Psychological Conditioning of Americans, Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D., NewsWithViews.com, October 29, 2012)
 
Psychological manipulation was redefined as mental health and promoted by biological (naturalistic) psychiatry and the World Federation for Mental Health. But what is mental health, or more precisely, what is mental illness and what 'evil' force causes it?  Answer: Biblical morality and belief in right and wrong, said psychiatrist G. Brock Chisholm.  The Biblical concept of right and wrong produces perversions said Chisholm:
 
"We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents...Sunday and day school teachers, our politicians, our priests, our newspapers...The results...are frustration, inferiority, neurosis and inability to enjoy living...If the race is to be freed from its crippling burden of good and evil it must be psychiatrists who take the original responsibility." (The Underground History of American Education, John Taylor Gatto, p 282)
 
In 1951, British philosopher Bertrand Russell, an 'elite' atheist with strong leanings toward Epicurean materialism wrote that the science of manipulating the minds of the masses would be diligently studied.  In his book, "The Impact of Science On Society" (1951) he wrote:
 
"Although this science of mass psychology will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions are generated." (ibid, Cuddy)
 
In the early 50's, conservative intellectual Anthony Harrigan lashed out at our amoral ruling elite for maliciously demoralizing and degrading Americans in preparation for the acceptance of Communist slavery.  Toward this end they were forcing the acceptance of meaningless, ugly 'art,' abnormalcy (i.e., sodomy), and pornography intentionally mislabeled as,
 
"....medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion...Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class which...is conducting us to ruin." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, pp. 39-40)
 
The results of mass psychology soon became obvious. In "Mental Robots" (1957) Dr. Lewis A. Alesen, former president of the California Medical Association declared:
 
"Americans today are being deluged with...propaganda...under the disarmingly innocent title of 'The Mental Health Program.'...Its (robotry) objectives...the ultimate destruction of the human individual as a person; the eradication of all the traditions, ideals and moral concepts which he has learned from home, church, and school...and taught to deny and reject responsibility for himself, and to transfer that responsibility to the group, that is the state. The master plan...has been the result of...thousands of individuals...who have not had the time...or the ability to gain a perspective of the ultimate aims of the plan which they have actively aided in bringing to fruition. Summer sessions in group dynamics...under the direction of... a subdivision of the National Education Association, with...the fundamental objective to prepare those so trained in the subtle art of propagandizing without seeming to do so. Here among academic surroundings a carefully arranged schedule of indoctrination has been prepared by the National Education Association." (Cuddy)
 
By the late 1950s, the National Mental Health Institute began a program to have public schools administer Ritalin to children classified as "dull" or "emotionally disturbed."
 
In 1970 'elite' Technocratic globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski approved the increasing availability of psychotropic drugs as a means of mind control in his "Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Techtronic Era."  Biochemical drugs make human beings, "increasingly manipulable and malleable."
 

Today said Dr. Bruce Shortt, prescribing behavior modifying substances is probably the largest,
 
“…uncontrolled drug experiment in the history of the world….drugs are being given to children…especially little boys.”
 
Ritalin, Adderall, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil and other psychotropic drugs are,

 “…being used to drug school children at rates that are difficult to comprehend…The Drug Enforcement Administration has estimated that 8 million children and adults were on Ritalin in 2000. Prescriptions for Ritalin increased by 700 percent from 1990 to 2001.” (“Drugging Them Up,” Ch. 2, IndoctriNation, pp. 41-42)
 
By 1966, Dr. James McConnell, a professor of psychology at the University of Michigan, was boasting of his ability to psychologically control and manipulate unsuspecting Americans:
 
"I teach a course called The Psychology of Influence, and I begin it by stating categorically that the time has come when, if you give me any normal human being and a couple of weeks,...I can change his behavior from what it is not to whatever you want it to be, if it's physically possible....I can turn him from a Christian into a communist and vice versa....Look, we can do these things. We can control behavior." (ibid)
 
Just five years later Milton Rokeach wrote in "Persuasion That Persists:"
 
"It now seems to be within man's power to alter experimentally another person's basic values, and to control the direction of the change." (Psychology Today, Sept. 1971)
 
In 1978 Martin Gross, author of "The Psychological Society" informed his readers that:
 
"Our schools are taking on the aura of a psychiatric clinic, without taxpayer consent....The school child is immersed in a psychological environment in which he is cajoled, invited, seduced, even bludgeoned into seeking counseling....Almost all the (school psychology) personnel are actually laymen. The entire practice of school psychology may be seen as an intrusion of bureaucracy into the family structure....By labeling it as 'counseling' instead of 'psychotherapy,' they may have invented a semantic subterfuge to circumvent the law....There is no real evidence that the anxieties, neuroses, or eventual psychosis rate of children is in any way reduced by school intervention. There is the equal possibility that the effort is actually a NEUROTIC STIMULUS. With our taxes, we are helping poorly trained specialists to tamper with the psyches of an already over psychologized generation." (ibid, Cuddy)
 
Many years later psychiatrist William Sargent identified some of the principle techniques underlying mind control in his book, "Battle for the Mind: The Mechanics of Indoctrination, Brainwashing, and Thought Control."  In addition to unlimited sex and drugs, Sargent indicates that if certain,
 
"underlying psychological principles are once understood, it should be possible to get at the person, converting and maintaining him in his new belief by a whole variety of imposed stresses that end by altering his brain function."
 
He further explained that the human brain,
 
"...is particularly sensitive to rhythmic stimulation by percussion and bright lights....Belief can be implanted in people after brain function has been sufficiently disturbed by...induced fear, anger or excitement. Of the results caused by such disturbances, the most common one is temporarily impaired judgment and heightened suggestibility." (ibid, Cuddy)
 
In other words, loud, rhythmic drumming and screaming electric guitars accompanied by flashing lights produces a trance-like state that impairs judgment and opens the mind to suggestions.
 
For more than seventy years Americans have been psychologically manipulated and drugged with the ultimate goal  of causing a massive counter-conversion of souls from Jesus Christ to the satanic values espoused by our spiritually empty ruling class.

If Darwinism is true, then man is a soulless bag of chemicals or beast man equivalent to a rat, pig, or ape.   But if man has no inner person (soul/spirit) as our evil-minded ruling class want you to believe, then the idea of mind control would be absurd.
 
As spirit (mind, will, conscience) is the citadel of your soul, then mind control is really about possession of your soul.  It is the control of the soul, mind, will, and conscience of one person by an evil soul who desires to manipulate and possess his/her control subject to do its' bidding.
 
Mind control is like hypnosis. The words, thoughts and desires of the psychological manipulator  program the mind, will, and conscience of the person who has been seduced, mesmerized, or entranced.   We may call this mental programming or brainwashing but it is really spiritual warfare with the goal of possession.

The Real Horror of Evolutionary Naturalism

It is now common for men and women who support traditional marriage to be accused of and punished for harboring an animus or hatred of  homosexuals---sexually disordered males and females who perceive themselves as two-in-ones (androgynes).

This issue 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, an insidious process that began during the Enlightenment when Deists and fellow thinkers elevated ‘reason’ and mechanistic laws of nature (universe of evolving energy and matter) above the Holy Triune Creator of everything seen (matter) and unseen (energy, laws, spirit, mind) thereby reducing man to a soulless product of nature.

Created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons, the human person is individually unique, rational, the subject of moral agency, and within the context of his humanity, a type of co-creator, meaning man creates from what God has provided. Accordingly, the human person possesses innate value and dignity that in turn implies certain unalienable (God given) rights and moral duties both for himself and other persons. These evident truths about the dignity of the human person are known through Revelation, but are also discernible through intellect and conscience.

With the supernatural Holy Trinity displaced by nature, man is no longer a living soul created in the spiritual image of God, meaning he is no longer a person nor either  male or female, but rather a dehumanized sexless aggregate of matter in motion while the powers and abilities of his mind (spirit) are nothing more than energies acting on grey matter, that is, chemical interactions and the firing of synapses. In short, 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 God is not the result of science, as evolutionary naturalists falsely claim, but rather the product of a depraved conscience that justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of freedom. It is hostility and outright hatred of God and His image-bearers disguised behind linguistic sophistry, the Orwellian-speak of rebellious, God-haters.

With God out of the picture, then so too are the fall, sin, immutable truth, universal moral absolutes, the two created sexes (male and female) 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 depraved– is now possible:

"Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated. The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit; he has ceased to act wisely and do good. He plots trouble while on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not reject evil." Psalm 36: 1-4 ESV

Long before Nietzsche announced that with the death of God an inversion of the West’s biblically-based moral foundations would be the result, the thoroughly evil Marquis de Sade, a murderer whose name is synonymous with sadism, had already arrived at that conclusion.   Thus he brazenly defended his bestiality, sodomy, sadism, and murder as moral, and redefined both God and Biblical morality as truly evil.

Building off of this foundation, he denied any need for limitations on the appetites of beast-men. Whatever they saw and desired was absolutely permissible. Consistent with his logic was the repudiation of the idea of crime, which de Sade regarded as an imposition on beast-man’s freedom.   According to de Sade, the criminal—the murderer, rapist, sodomite, pedophile, thief, terrorist, ISIS, etc.— is the truly free man.

In short, within the worldview of evolutionary naturalism, all appetites, no matter how sick, twisted and murderous, are normative and ideal, but when the Bible declares these to be fallen and depraved, it is abnormal and evil.  Hence evil is good, and entirely permissible, while dissent against evil is itself evil:

"The Little Black Book - Queer in the 21st Century," an extremely depraved and disgusting "how-to" booklet "was distributed to hundreds of kids (middle school age and up) at Brookline High School, Brookline, MA, on April 30, 2005. It was written by the Boston-based AIDS Action Committee, with help  from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Boston Public Health Commission. The event that day was designed for children and their teachers across Massachusetts, organized by the "Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network" (GLSEN).  This is the group that runs "Gay-Straight Alliance" clubs in public schools across the country. You must ask yourself: What kind of person would write this? What kind of person would give it to kids?"  (massresistance.org) 

"The US State Department under Hillary has already been funding homosexual groups in foreign countries with US tax dollars.....Hillary has also used American tax dollars to fund homosexual groups and events in Slovakia, Russia, China, Honduras, Uganda, Malawi, Turkey, Pakistan, and others.  In Pakistan, the US State Department held a homosexual pride rally at the US embassy in Islamabad.  The event prompted anti-US riots....Quietly, Obama and Hillary have been granting homosexuals "refugee status" to come to the United States.  This includes homosexuals with HIV/AIDS.  All of this has been done quietly, with very little media coverage.  However, Obama has now declared it official policy."  (Obama orders US State Department to Fund Homosexual Groups Overseas, Kyle Rogers, examiner.com, Dec. 6, 2011)

De Sade was a thoroughly reprobate man who absolutely refused to consider his perverse ideas and evil actions as in any way wrong. He was an intellectually and morally evil man who maliciously whipped up moral outrage against God and His Law and relished his self-appointed role as His accuser.

According to de Sade’s twisted reasoning, all evil---abortion, pornography, incest, pedophilia, sodomy, bestiality, rape, lying, thievery, thuggery, vandalism, violence, murder, genocide, and the subversion and perversion of children---is entirely justified by evolutionary naturalism, which has freed man from God and His Law.

The real horror of this worldview is its positive declaration of a “new” inverted-morality which we commonly think of as political correctness with its two overriding absolutes – “tolerance” and “inclusion.” Thus today the brazenly, shamelessly perverse claim of  the “politically correct”  wicked to the amoral high ground where they point accusing fingers at Biblical ethics and faithful Christians who hold fast to them.

De Sade was the forerunner of all contemporary evolutionary naturalists who today demand total freedom for everything except Christian theism, decency, truth and virtue, a policy now well-entrenched in the American psyche, and as a consequence, in schools, universities, unions, courts, legislators, city halls, statehouses, Hollywood, the music industry, and even seminaries and pulpits.

In the burned out areas known today as the post-Christian West and America, self-worshipping conscious products of evolution hold the pseudo- moral ‘high’ ground from whence they demonize decent, law-abiding  men and women as haters, heterosexists, homophobes, racists, fascists, bigots and mentally-insane anti-science fundamentalists. (Isaiah 59:15)

Predictably, the day will arrive— and perhaps more quickly than we realize—when being a faithful orthodox Christian or Jew  is to be a criminal, as is the case in Iraq:

"We are hated because we persist in wanting to exist as Christians. In other words, we are hated because we persist in demanding a basic human right.....During the past year, more than 125,000 Christians have been forced to flee from their villages only because they chose to remain Christians and refused the conditions ISIS imposed on them. They had to leave at night, under the cover of darkness. Many of them trod their own path of Golgotha for long hours, having left everything behind, other than their bare clothes....Too many families have lost confidence in their homeland. This should not surprise anyone. The homeland of Christians has rejected them and thrown them up."    (Iraqi bishop: 'We are hated because we persist in wanting to exist as Christians,' Archbishop Bashar Warda, churchinneed.org, February 17, 2015) 

This will become our ‘new’ reality because contemporary naturalists are just now arriving at the more consistent worldview of de Sade and proactively imprinting it upon our culture, with special emphasis upon our children. De Sade’s evil worldview is coming to fullness within Western and American culture. It is a part of our educational system, our laws, politics, courts, the arts, and entertainment.

We cannot stop the evolutionary naturalistic worldview merely by opposing it. The worldview that justifies evil and demands the right to debase, pollute, depersonalize, kill and enslave must be opposed by its sole antithesis, the supernatural Biblical worldview.

The modern faith in man-as-god and the supremacy of his base urges must be countered with God Almighty as the Sovereign dispenser of law and grace. The naturalistic worldview is consistently meaningless, evil and suicidal and pulls its followers down into the void. The gospel of Jesus Christ however, opens up a supernatural worldview that offers ultimate meaning, hope, and purpose.

Fundamentally, there are only two choices before all men: hope or despair, the Kingdom of God or the kingdom of bestial man, eternal life in Paradise or an eternity in outer darkness.

Technocracy: The Worldview in Back of the "Gay" Juggernaut

The U.S. Supreme Court has cleared the way for same-sex weddings to start in Alabama,

"...letting the number of gay-marriage states climb in advance of a constitutional showdown that may mean legalization nationwide."   (Gay Marriage Cleared by U.S. High Court to Start in Alabama, Greg Stohr, Bloomberg Politics, Feb. 9, 2015)

For more than 80 years America has been undergoing a dramatic worldview change from its' founding Christian-based worldview to a naturalistic worldview undergirded by Technocracy, Transhumanism, Scientism, Evolution, moral relativism and androgyny, the pagan ideal.  Thus the re-definition of marriage follows the re-definition of man as uncreated emergent androgynous product of evolutionary energies acting on matter over millions of years.  This is why, at the behest of global Technocrats, 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)

The gay (androgynous) juggernaut, moral relativism, unfettered killing defined as 'choice,' pornography as a Constitutional right, apostasy, and other social evils have been unleashed within America and onto the world because in post-Christian America, scientism (spawn of positivism) and anti-creation evolutionary thinking have supplanted God's Infallible Word.

Anti-creation evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. It is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion,

"...a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint—and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it—the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.… Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity."  Michael Ruse

Michael Ruse was professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada. He was the leading anti-creationist philosopher whose flawed arguments  convinced a biased judge to rule against the Arkansas ‘balanced treatment’ of creation and evolution in schools bill proposed in 1981. At the trial, he and other anti-creationists loftily dismissed the claim that evolution was an anti-god religion.  (creation.com)
 
The Technocratic worldview--scientism, evolutionary biology and evolutionary cosmogonies such as the Big Bang, a fraudulent metaphysical project---is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience, especially within the progressive liberal community. Anti-creation evolution not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines as well as occult New Age pantheist spirituality and 'Christian' theological permutations such as Teilhard de Chardin's Hindu-pantheist New Religion, Michael Dowd's God-less evolutionary 'Christian' paganism, and the progressive creationism popularized by astronomer Hugh Ross.

Scientism and anti-creation evolutionism reject the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo together with the Fall and teach instead an inverted exegesis positing billions of years of evolutionary ascent of life from chemicals, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.

This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter, and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are men going to become something else (i.e., supermen, god-men, super robots) but nothing can be said about transgender, sodomy, bestiality, man-boy-love, and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by a Cosmic Egg which may or may not involve a man-shaped-and-controlled deity.

With regard to soul, if life arose from chemicals and then billions of years later man evolved from lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth.  Like them he has no spirit—will, intellect, and conscience.  He is an androgynous bio-machine or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

The worldview change overtaking America is an anti-creation religion of modern man, who like Nimrod, is in rebellion against the Holy Trinity and cannot be fixed by politics.

Bruce Jenner's Futile Attempt to Escape His Suffering

Moved by compassion, Matt Barber tries to warn Bruce Jenner of a major pitfall:

"Though it eludes your vision, it looms all the same but a few short steps ahead of you. While at the time of this writing you have yet to confirm or deny reports, multiple media outlets are abuzz with rumors that you intend to “transition from male to female.”  (An Appeal to Bruce Jenner, Matt Barber, barbwire.com, 7 February, 2015) 

As you ultimately know in your heart-of-hearts, this extreme path you appear to have chosen to take at this late stage in your life,

"....is not the answer to the question, “Who is Bruce Jenner?” You must certainly be aware, if only deep down, that to “transition from male to female” is a hopeless and hapless impossibility, biologically, emotionally, spiritually and in every other way imaginable. If you have been convinced otherwise, you labor under grave deception."

There is a reason that after “sex reassignment” surgery,

"...so-called “transgender” people commit suicide at a rate 20 times higher than normal and, despite rationalizations to the contrary, imaginary “transphobia” is not that reason. If you follow through with this, Bruce, you will be making, second only to denying Christ, the biggest mistake of your life."

Who is Bruce Jenner?

Contrary to the modern "scientific" and "evolutionary" definition of man as soulless bio-machine, an emergent product of evolutionary energies acting on matter over millions of years, man is actually a soul/spirit (mind) embedded within flesh (matter).  Thus the real person and his or her gender is not the body but rather his or her inner person, making gender innate.  In this light what drives some males and females to reject their inner person in favor of homosexuality, lesbianism, androgynous trans-sexuality or a non-gender specific designation?  

Answer: the question of evil and suffering and a compelling desire to escape their gnawing teeth.

Whether it is environmental evil resulting from hurricanes, floods, fires, tsunamis or earthquakes; physical suffering resulting from loss of limbs, cancer, or some other debilitating condition; or moral evil (sin), not one of us escapes it, meaning all people--not just some--suffer, and today with the Christian God Who created everything seen and unseen ex nihilo mainly dead in the hearts of modern Westerners and Americans and with little or no restraints upon the sin nature of men, not since the 20th century has the existence of human evil been as apparent as in our largely humanized hence morally relative century where evolution, scientism, the disordered intellect and libido are worshipped rather than our Father in heaven.  Hence the dilemma expressed by the ancient Greek nature philosopher Epicurus is repeated by millions of Westerners and Americans today:

Omnipotence could, Benevolence would have prevented evil.”

From the moment that Adam and Eve were ushered out of paradise, men began complaining:

"Why must we die? Why must there be decay? Why must we work? Why does he have (fill in the blanks) but I do not? That's unfair! Why can't we say, do and have whatever we desire? If it feels good (libidinous impulses) then why shouldn't we do it? If my body is my own why must it accommodate another life growing within it? Why must there be authority, rules, norms, absolutes, and consequences? Why does it have to be this way? Why can't it be the way we want it to be?"

And finally: Who or what is the cause of our suffering?

From Nimrod to Karl Marx and contemporary "God is dead" rebels and apostates, the answer is the transcendent Authority of God the Father Almighty together with the fallen condition of man and the world.

"Then the lust, when it hath conceived, beareth sin: and the sin, when it is fullgrown, bringeth forth death." James 1:15 ESV

The psalmist compares the disordered thoughts of the intellect and will turned toward evil to a conception, and when they go out in word and act, they "bring forth" death.  This was the case during the course of the 20th century when God-hating Gnostic-pagan socialist and communist regimes brutally murdered somewhere between 160,000,000-350,000,000 men, women, and children in their insane attempts at scientifically engineering the ideal society and New Man free from evil/suffering, especially the evils 'caused' by the Christian God, Original Sin, Moral Law, immutable Truth, monogamous marriage, the two created sexes, ethical restraints, cultural taboos and all conditions that make for envy:

"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) 

Nature sages such as Epicurus and his Western and American contemporaries seek the same end but  start from the opposite extreme.  For them, desire of unfettered libido, immortality and its’ corollary, fear of death, is anesthetized through self-indulgence: immersion in drugs, alcohol, sex, freedom from one's innate gender, parties, plastic surgery, entertainment, technology, body-building, accumulation of things and status, and other temporal pleasures.  Self-indulgence is the supreme good. If it feels good, then do it for tomorrow we die.

With Nietzsche we see another form of escape: defiance, revolt, and negation (scoffing, mocking, harsh criticism, doubting) of God the Father, His Revealed Word, immutable Truths, Moral Law and virtues.  Nietzsche declared the Christian God dead and Christianity a slave morality that cultivates cringing virtues such as self-sacrifice, self-restraint, charity, humility and compassion.  To counter this great ‘evil’ men must cultivate an amoral ‘master morality,’ and produce a ‘race of supermen,’ monstrous psychopaths such as Lenin and Stalin who will send the despised and weak to the wall.  Autonomous super-men must crush whatever and whoever causes them to suffer without the least concern for other people.  Super-men will destroy the "enemy" with defiance, scoffing, mocking, doubting, terror, brute force and murder.

This was the philosophy of Berlin and Moscow which regarded nations and people who were not scientifically re-engineered New Men as worthy only to be sterilized, lobotomized, tormented, used for human experimentation, worked to death as slaves and sent to the wall, meaning liquidated in some fashion.  Together Berlin and Moscow murdered in excess of one-hundred million men, women, and children.

The three-fold attitude in common with all of these natural systems is that suffering, not sin, is the supreme evil thus the only means of dealing with suffering is escape of any kind and complete as possible making peace the absence of suffering. 

In every age, the natural mind unaided by Divine Revelation has tried in vain to solve the problem of evil/suffering. But because the human condition (sin) is responsible for moral evils, the natural man never finds peace though he looks for it everywhere and in its pursuit even rejects his or her inner person in favor of godhood and androgyny:

 "For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the spirit is life and peace."  Roman 8:6 ESV

Divine Revelation tells us that sin, the willful rejection of the Holy God, an attempt by the envious to annihilate Him if possible, is the origin of all three types of evil.  Sin began with Lucifer and then spread to Adam and Eve through abuse of intellect and will resulting in the loss of the supernatural gift of grace (spiritual death).  

Our Heavenly Father did not make Adam perfect because He well-knew the great obstacle to perfection: abuse of will and intellect in the choice of good and evil.  Perfection must wait until men have passed the danger of abusing His gifts of intellect and will, thereby falling as the sinful angels had done before them.  Thus Adam was made good, and before he fell there was perfect harmony between his three natures ---mind (intellect and will), soul, and body (matter)---hence he knew nothing of the polluted, degraded conscience, inflexible will turned to evil, and disordered intellect and emotions that have been the daily experience of spiritually dead men since the disobedience of Adam and Eve.

The supernatural gift of grace was something men were meant to have and would have allowed them to live in perfect control of their emotions and without suffering the loss of their reason.   But since the fall, Adam’s descendants are conceived and born, not in a state of grace as men were originally meant to be, but in a state of sin, a defective state of being deprived of supernatural grace (spiritual death) wherein the disordered soul has predominated in its power over the body. (Heb. 4:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:23)  However, in eternity (Paradise), the supernatural gift of grace will be restored (perfect regeneration of spirit) and perfect harmony will ensue. With regenerated spirit once again elevated to the throne we shall become conscious of glorious powers which we can now neither apprehend nor imagine.  In place of the soul with its disordered passions and fallible, deceptive, inconsistent, illogical reasoning, our Lord's redeemed children shall be gifted with glorious powers, perfect peace and unerring perception of the Truth and Righteousness  which is the prerogative of fully regenerated, untainted spirits.

In the meantime, even in the case of those who have been born again, meaning their spirits are being regenerated, the intellectual faculty is still so incompetent that though such people possess Truth in Divine Revelation they are only able, as Paul tells us, to know and understand it only in part for the present.

Birds do not fly because their bodies have wings but because their inner bird flies.  Flying is for the inner bird as innate as the innate maleness or femaleness of fallen human beings.  This is why Bruce Jenner cannot escape his suffering through rejection of his innate maleness:  

"That emptiness inside, that void you seek to fill cannot be filled by hacking away at yourself. You have a “God-shaped hole” in your heart. You need heart surgery, Bruce, not cosmetic surgery. To attempt change from the outside in is merely superficial. It will lead only to further seeking, heartache and, ultimately, to spiritual death. That longing you feel, that change you seek, can only come from the inside out." (Barber)

Madness Enforced by Tyranny in America's Emerging New World Order

On January 29, students attending Acalanes Union High School in Lafayette, Calif., reported that members of the Queer Straight Alliance (QSA) were allowed to take over all freshmen English classes in order to grill students about their personal beliefs and their parents’ personal beliefs on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues:

"...freshmen students were reportedly singled out---with tacit support of teachers---and humiliated if they didn't subscribe to politically correct views on gay and lesbian issues." (Report: Bay Area High School Let 'Queer Straight Alliance' Bully Students, Chriss Street, breitbart.com, Feb. 5, 2015)

For many years now MassResistance has been trying to warn Americans that the "gay" movement, backed by Obama and other treacherous power-hungry narcissists, is fighting  hard for “transgender rights” and “gender identity non-discrimination” laws because these laws are the entré  to fundamentally transforming society into a God-less, androgynous collective. Once these laws are in place,  we will no longer be allowed to distinguish between male and female, nor will parents be allowed to protect their children against ‘otherly-gendered’ sexual predators or even themselves from aggressive sexual advances.  (Lawsuit forces Boston Police Dept. to implement outrageous  transgender policy regarding arrests & searches, Massresistance.org)

Perversion induced madness enforced by tyranny results when some individuals try to force their disorders (compulsions, appetites, paranoia, greed, resentment, hate, envy) onto other people.  In the former Soviet Union where resentment-fueled perversion became the "new" norm, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, transgender and lesbianism were forced upon Eastern-Orthodox Russia by depraved Soviet sexologists:

 “Soviet sexologists in the 1920s participated in the international movement for sexual reform…a pamphlet titled 'The Sexual Revolution in Russia'…stated: 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 one’s 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, pride series, workers.org)

"The Bolshevik Party did not merely scrap anti-homosexual tsarist laws. Sexologist Wilhelm Reich, in "The Sexual Revolution," described the intent of the Bolsheviks' political position. They felt it was necessary to tear down the walls that divided homosexuals--also known in Russia as "people of the moonlight--from the rest of society." (People of the Moonlight in the Dawn of Revolution, Leslie Feinberg, lesbian, gay, bi and trans pride series workers.org)

"The revolutionaries tried to examine sexuality and gender as they did all social and economic relations--through a scientific lens...." "Soviet Russia was by far the most significant power since the French Revolution to decriminalize male same-sex relations, while Britain and Weimar Germany continued to prosecute homosexuals. Soviet health authorities courted the left-leaning sex reform movement headed by Berlin sexologist and homosexual rights campaigner Magnus Hirschfeld."  (ibid)

"In a 1929 discussion about 'transvestites' and the 'intermediate sex' conducted by the Expert Medical Council of the  Commissariat of Health, women of the 'masculinized type' (cross-dressing army commanders, for example) were considered with fascination and indulgence." ("1920s Soviet Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals, Leslie Feinberg, Workers World News Service, Aug. 18, 2004)

The Soviet Union, heralded as a scientifically engineered 'worker's paradise' and by Western and American Progressive Socialists as 'the mother country' was nothing more than a modern day reprisal of Sodom and Gomorrah where the genitally obsessed were seduced by promises of 'free love.' What was 'free love'? In his well-researched expose of Communism, The Naked Communist, author W. Cleon Skousen reveals that 'free love' was made possible when young wives, sisters, daughters, and nieces  were declared the property of the pagan god-state. Anarchists were given control of the sex-slaves and they  issued 'usage' licenses to privileged 'workers.' In other words, females were forcibly dominated and violated and this was called 'free love.' Skousen quotes a Communist official who says:

"There is no such thing as a woman being violated by a man; he who says that a violation is wrong denies the October Communist Revolution. To defend a violated woman is to reveal oneself as a bourgeois and a partisan of private property." (The Naked Communist, Skousen, p. 73)

In the preceding statements, we can clearly see the depraved basis for today’s politically correct notions of hate crime, speech codes, equality, tolerance, inclusion, sensitivity training, emerging genders, alternative lifestyles, prostitute and pedo-chic clothing for females and young girls, and the "politically correct" forced-feeding of polymorphous perversion to American school children enforced by thought and speech control commissars:

“Thought crime was not a thing that could be concealed forever.  You might dodge successfully for awhile…but sooner or later they were bound to get you.”  George Orwell, 1984

Natan Sharansky, a dissident in the former Soviet Union describes existence in the former Soviet Union as madness enforced by tyranny where,

“…there were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately.” Under the terrorist-tactics of hate crime laws, speech codes, and other thought-control tactics, everyone became double thinkers. To outside observers notes Sharansky, double thinkers appear as true believers: “everybody says the same thing, everybody votes the same way, everybody speaks with passion.” But this is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth, of discriminating between good and evil, truth and lie, normal and abnormal. These people, he noted, “live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime  demands loyalty right from childhood, many don’t even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves.” But when a “fear society disappears or becomes  weak, people suddenly start saying what they feel,” Sharansky commented, and “It’s such a big relief.”  (The Power of Freedom, The  American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the “town square test.” In this test, if you,

“…can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society” even though that society may not be just. However, if you are “punished for your views you live in a fear society….In such societies there are always three types of population: True believers, who accept the ideology…dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts.."

To get an inkling of what that strait-jacket of madness was like let us imagine that pathologically twisted color-blind people have managed to seize absolute control of our country and have forbidden Americans from judging between the colors yellow and purple.  Terroristic bully-boys or enforcers of "correct color" armed with the force of broken law patrol farmers markets, personal gardens, grocery stores, restaurants and clothing stores enforcing strict adherence to correct color codes while scrutinizing faces for possible signs of politically incorrect ‘thought’  indicative of discrimination or judgment between yellow and purple.  Of course the bully-boys are not color-blind themselves but because they too are pathologically twisted they receive sadistic pleasure from psychologically bullying, terrorizing, physically abusing and dominating other people.

Measured by Sharanskys’ town-square test we can see that America and Western Europe are rapidly descending into a fear-based madhouse where dissent (incorrect thought) against abortion, evolution, any or all of the ‘gay’ agenda, decadence festivals, illegal immigration, the sexualization of our children, the imposition of shariah, and socialistic ‘healthcare’ brings immediate demonization.  You may be heavily fined, declared insane, lose your job, your business, your home and even your children.

"Life has no rules." EST's Werner Erhard

In an address to the 10th Annual Freedom 21 Conference (10/16/09) Tom DeWeese tried to warn Americans that,

“….we are witnessing an all-out drive to impose thought control that seeks to ban the ability — the right — to think or speak for one’s self.  Thinking is becoming a crime.”    (Globally Acceptable Truth and the Crime of Thinking, Tom DeWeese)

A growing danger that a morally depraved, willfully ignorant, entertainment-glutted people will not heed.  Caught up as they are in gratification of ‘self’ they do not care to hear things that disturb them, that make them feel ‘bad’ or guilty:

"None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the rest love not freedom, but license, which never hath more scope than under tyrants." John Milton (1608-1674) English Poet, Scholar, Writer, Patriot

We cannot understand the rapid disintegration of America's humanized Christian Church together with the seething hatred of Jesus Christ, the treachery of our narcissistic power-grabbing ruling class and the pathological lying, obscenity, perversity, blasphemy, lawlessness, the subversion and perversion of youth and other evils so obviously endemic here in America and throughout the West 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..." observed 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)   

Man is not born good.  Nor is he or she '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)

The architects of our nation were men who did not shy away from the ugly truth about man's Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde 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)

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

But when people are universally ignorant, corrupt and vicious:

“….they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”   Samuel Adams

And then:

“… dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington

Solzhenitsyn: Hatred of God is the Evil in Man's Nature

Though some GOP 'elites' may be heard speaking of God or Christ and even be seen holding a Bible, at bottom they share a common heritage with progressive liberal socialists.  Both are the intellectual heirs of a rebellion against the God of Revelation and Christian theism that began as far back as the Renaissance.  This is why  GOP candidates are allowed occasionally to express pro-morality views, but only as throwaway lines, at least during the primary season.   What infuriates the GOP elite is when someone like Santorum says them with conviction.

For many long years God and pro-moral views were just part of the now happily-defunct winning formula.   But now it’s time to jump onto the decadence band-wagon and throw support in that direction since lying, disorder, death, debauchery, perversion, illegals, global change, 'gay' marriage, open borders, tolerance and abortion are the keys to power, dominance, wealth, status, and position.

It is here that ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn has much to tell us about the horrendous consequences reaped by a people who rebel against God.  Like America’s progressive liberal and GOP ‘elites,’ Solzhenitsyn initially embraced the revolution against God:

It was Dostoevsky, once again, who drew from the French Revolution and its seeming hatred of the Church the lesson that “revolution must necessarily begin with atheism.” That is absolutely true. But the world had never before known a godlessness as organized, militarized, and tenaciously malevolent as that practiced by Marxism. Within the philosophical system of Marx and Lenin, and at the heart of their psychology, hatred of God is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions. Militant atheism is not merely incidental or marginal to Communist policy; it is not a side effect, but the central pivot.”  Solzhenitsyn

Most of what contemporary Russia has to tell us about that demonic reality can be seen in Solzhenitsyn.

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 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 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.”

Gradually 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. 

But what of the West and particularly America?  Though there is a vibrant attempt underway to reform the Protestant church there is no strong, national Christian revival but rather the reverse, as Solzhenitsyn perceptively noted many years ago.  As evolutionary humanism  and moral relativism cast their nets over the West and America,  Christian conviction in unchanging Truth and moral absolutes faded and the Western world lost its’ civil courage,

“….both as a whole and separately, in each country, each government, each political party and of course in the United Nations. Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling groups and the intellectual elite, causing an impression of loss of courage by the entire society…..Should one point out that from ancient times decline in courage has been considered the beginning of the end?”

What happened in Russia has already killed the soul of Western Europe and is strangling the soul of America. Thus  America and the West are also facing this universal anti-God and Christian phenomenon of state atheism and its politically correct Gulag.  This is the message Solzhenitsyn presented in his American addresses.  In his Harvard commencement in 1978 he castigated  America for its loss of will, loss of truth, and loss of morality as well as its’ love of lies, pleasure, hedonism and materialism together with its satisfaction with legalism in human relations:

Is it possible or impossible to transmit the experience of those who have suffered to those who have yet to suffer?  Can one part of humanity learn from the bitter experience of another or can it not?  Is it possible or impossible to warn someone of danger?…  The proud skyscrapers stand on, point to the sky and say: it will never happen here.  This will never come to us.  It’s not possible here…  Humanity acts in such a way is if it didn’t understand what Communism is, and doesn’t want to understand, is not capable of understanding… The essence of Communism is quite beyond the limits of human understanding.  Its hard to believe that people could actually plan such things and carry them out…

Communism has infected the whole world with the belief in the relativity of good and evil…  Among enlightened people it is considered rather awkward to use seriously such words as ‘good’ and ‘evil.’  Communism has managed to instill in all of us that these concepts are old-fashioned concepts and laughable.  But if we are to be deprived of the
concepts of good and evil, what will be left?  Nothing but the manipulation of one another.  We will decline to the status of animals.”

As godlessness advances over the West and America, destructive and irresponsible freedom is granted boundless space, and even defined as Constitutional rights.  Thus Western and American society said Solzhenitsyn,

“…. appears to have little defense against the abyss of human decadence, such as, for example, misuse of liberty for moral violence against young people, motion pictures full of pornography, crime and horror. It is considered to be part of freedom and theoretically counter-balanced by the young people’s right not to look or not to accept. Life organized legalistically has thus shown its inability to defend itself against the corrosion of evil.”

Throughout Western society and especially here in America suffering is anathema.   It is to be escaped at all costs.  Avenues of escape are legion:  parties, drugs, orgies, abortion, euthanasia, easy divorce, shacking up, decadence festivals, trance festivals, electronic gadgets, role-playing, ‘gay’ marriage,  games and vast entertainment parks:

We are the products of Disneyland and a society of fakery and plastic everything—including plastic Christianity and plastic Orthodoxy.  Let us be humble enough to recognize it.  (I am not saying, by the way, that one should be forbidden to go to Disneyland or should be constantly scowling—I am only saying that we should be aware of our crippled state and the depth of the true Christianity of suffering.)”    (The Orthodox Revival in Russia, Fr. Seraphim Rose, Sept. 1, 1980)

Solzhenitsyn warned America to wake up and learn from those who have suffered.  Return to America’s Christian and moral roots and stand firmly in the spiritual war of good against evil.   And do not pursue what is illusory:

“….property and position: all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade and can be confiscated in one fell night. Live with a steady superiority over life – don’t be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn after happiness; it is after all, all the same: the bitter doesn’t last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing. ”  Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Why Pride Goes Before a Fall

A concerned reader asked if whether the pride of the hell-bound can be humbled enough for them to see their lies and thereby recant?

Why Inflexible Pride Goes Before a Fall

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

The narcissistic man or woman is a self-righteous hypocrite, a narcissist of inflexible pride who refuses to tolerate the knowledge of his or her own weaknesses, failings, and sinfulness, thus is constantly engaged in sweeping the evidence of their own remarkably consistent sins under the rug of their conscience in order to preserve their carefully constructed public facades. This is why as the saying goes, "pride goes before a fall" because mans' sin nature blinds him (or her) to reality.  Thus it can be said that as narcissists of inflexible pride foolishly dance on the edge of the abyss they are willfully blind to their danger of falling in because they have willfully chosen ignorance.

So the short answer to the readers' question is "no."  No man is able to overcome the 'will' of  another man except through deceptive persuasion, lies, brain-altering drugs, psychological manipulation, propaganda of the lie, terror and brutality, sinister tactics associated with America's progressives/leftists, ISIS, and both Marxist Communists and National Socialists. 

In service to our Lord and in compassion for the lost the heaven-bound can take the "water of truth" to them but cannot make them drink it.   In "The Word of Flux" reformed theologian Rousas John Rushdoony tells us that the reason for man's willful choice of ignorance rather than true Truth is sin:

"The epistemological problem has roots in a false metaphysics, but both alike stem from a moral choice, man's sinful desire to be his own god....In reality, sin is man's rebellion against the law of God and man's attempt to be his own god, to replace God's Word with man's word."   (The Word of Flux, p. 51) 

In the "Last Battle," the conclusion to C.S. Lewis'  "Narnian Chronicles" Lewis illustrates Rusdoonys  conclusion as well as one made previously: that God honors our choices.  The Last Battle brings to a close the worldly Narnia which has already been renewed (Paradise) as well as separating the heaven-bound from the hell-bound.   Among the hell-bound are some dwarfs (citizens of the temporal Narnia).  They have died  and passed through the door into eternity where they sit together, huddled in a tight circle, completely blinded by the darkness around them.  But though they sit in darkness the heaven-bound Narnians  (talking beasts, righteous dwarves) and Kings and Queens of Narnia, past and present, are standing in beautiful light and can clearly see the dwarves.   In their concern for the dwarves the heaven-bound have repeatedly tried to reach out to them but to no avail.  When Aslan (Jesus Christ) arrives the heaven-bound ask if there is anything he can do.  Aslan responds,

"You see....They will not let us help them.  They have chosen cunning instead of belief.  Their prison is only in their own minds, yet they are in that prison; and so afraid of being taken in that that they cannot be taken out."   (p. 183)

Psychology of the Heaven-Bound & Hell-Bound

During C.S. Lewis's lifetime, evolutionary cosmic and secular pagan and mystical pantheist ideas and philosophical systems (the 'new' spirituality) were growing in acceptance and popularity throughout academia, within seminaries, universities and among the masses.

Among common points of departure for both types of pagan humanism are the following ideas:

1. Rejection of the Holy God in three Persons with special antipathy directed against the Second Person, Jesus Christ God incarnate, in favor of naturalism; no God, a limited God that can only create through evolution, or pantheist conceptions of God such as Teilhards' Hindu-pantheist Omega or Brahman, and Jesus Christ as a mortal teacher such as Buddha, the angelic brother of Lucifer, or perhaps a highly evolved Transcended Master or spirit guide.

2. A priori rejection of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo in favor of evolutionary science.

3. Rejection of physical eternal life in either Paradise (renewed earth) or hell in favor of annihilation (no afterlife), absorption (Nirvana) or wholly spiritual conceptions of life out in the astral plane or perhaps living a phantom existence on a planet

4. Humanity as deity

5. Moral relativism: No right way, no wrong way

6. Universalism: all ways lead to the same place:

"The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions.   It hushes their fears and allows them to practice all pleasant forms of iniquity while death draws every day nearer and the command to repent goes unheeded."  A.W. Tozer The Knowledge of the Holy

The dangers of holding erroneous views are profound and in his book, "The Great Divorce," Lewis attempted to address them by presenting us with a masterful study of the psychology of the hell-bound versus the psychology of the Paradise-bound.

As Lewis fleshes out his view of hell, he relies in part on his mentor George MacDonald, a Scottish preacher and writer who believed there might be a final opportunity for the unrepentant on earth to repent after their death. Building off this idea, Lewis depicts the damned as taking a bus ride from hell to heaven, where they come in contact with "real" reality.

Heaven is a place of physical matter, of weight and mass and the blessed inhabitants are the beautiful "bright solid people" as opposed to the self-idolizing dirty shades without mass, or matter. N.T. Wright explains,

"...there will be a new mode of physicality, which stands in relation to our present body as our present body does to a ghost....a Christian in the present life is a mere shadow of his or her future self, the self that person will be when the body that God has waiting in his heavenly storeroom is brought out...and put on...over the self that will still exist after bodily death." (Eternal Perspectives, Randy Alcorn, p. 154-155)

The bus finally arrives in heaven having arisen from what turns out to be a mere crack in the ground for Lewis sees all Hell as,

"....smaller than one pebble of your earthly world: but it is smaller than one atom of this world, the Real World." (The Great Divorce, An Essay, Allen Adams, cslewis.drzeus.net)

Hell is smaller than one atom of Paradise because during the course of their lifetimes the hell-bound only grew horizontally due to their self-centeredness and selfishness rather than vertically as do the Paradise bound.  In other words, to become more Christ-like is to become much greater, brighter and larger than what you were while to grow even more self-centered is to become much less, that is, smaller and smaller and smaller.

As the hell-bound depart the bus they are shocked by the realization that not only are they small dirty ghosts but they cannot abide the physical matter of heaven because in life, like the pagan sages, the Gnostic Arnobius and contemporary secular and cosmic transhumanists, they were dissatisfied with their own bodies and created condition as either male or female for example, as well as with the finiteness of their own minds. In "Adversus nationes" (2.37) Arnobius complains,

"If souls were of the Lord's race...They would never come to these terrestrial places (and) inhabit opaque bodies and (be) mixed with humors and blood, in receptacles of excrement, in vases of urine." (The Pagan Temptation, Thomas Molnar, p. 27)

Molnar explains that from Plato to Plotinus, it was held as axiomatic that from being as one with or an aspect of the Divine Substance souls had inexplicably fallen into the material realm, a hellish place of misery, suffering and binary, which means for example, two distinct sexes rather than a two-in-one, the androgynous being called 'gay' in modern terminology. Salvation was secured through the mystery cults which,

"...afforded their devotees the opportunity to erase the curse of mortality by direct encounter with the patron deity or in many instances by actually undergoing an apotheosis, a transfiguration of human into divine. The process of 'initiation' in the mystery religions, therefore, had as its objective the liberation of the soul from its earthly...chains" (C.K. Barrett cited in "The Interruption of Eternity," Carl A. Raschke, p. 28)

At the root of the rejection of the living God by the hell-bound is the rebellious assertion that man has not been created by Him, that he is not dependent upon Him for his own life, thus he is not created in His spiritual image. He is not dependent upon the living God but is rather a man-god, the creator of God, and the master of time, being, and the world who through his own powers will save himself.

Blaming the true God for their misery the hell-bound say to Him, "you are not my father:"

"I am I, I come out of myself, and in choice and action I make myself." (Daniel Bell, quoted by Herbert Schlossberg in "Idols for Destruction," p. 43)

Having transferred onto Him the reasons for their wrong choices and dissatisfaction with self, the hell-bound long for eternal nothingness, absorption into the void, apotheosis, or some spiritual conception of afterlife, but when as dirty shades they step onto the "solidness" of heaven it is tremendously painful to them. The grass is sharp on their feet, the rain goes go through them like bullets from a machine gun. They can't even pick flowers as the stems are far too strong for them.

Here Lewis contrasts the psychology of the hell-bound over and against the psychology of the heaven-bound. He does so by clearly depicting just how repugnant heaven is to the hell-bound. To them, paradise is a place of pain and suffering because during life, they freely chose unwisely based on selfish motives.

Enormously proud, willful, rebellious, aggressive, resentful, covetous, and envious, the hell-bound are moral relativists, sovereign rebels with a cause, the cause of doing whatever they want.  Thus they hold that any direction, but particularly their own direction, will come out fine in the end, but Lewis sees the real danger to society as a result of this belief. The common good said Lewis, is only maintained by the common morality. Societies that embrace subjectivism are doomed to decay and death. Lewis put it this way,

"...some way of embracing both alternatives can always be found, that mere development of adjustment or refinement will somehow turn evil into good without our being called on for a final and total rejection of anything we should like to retain. This belief I take to be a disastrous error." (ibid, The Great Divorce, An Essay, Allen Adams)

So holding that any direction is fine, especially their own, the hell-bound have their own ever-unfolding menu of privileges which they called 'rights,' their own 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 were morally-perfect and autonomous they traveled their own sovereign roads and expected 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.

On the other hand, the humbler heaven-bound think that anyone would be delighted to live in heaven:

"Celebration, holy days (holidays) of fellowshipping and feasting together is a vibrant part of heaven.   It is very much associated with joy and rejoicing in the Bible.  Food, conversation, singing, shouting, praise, nature, music, thankfulness, rewards, prayer and people, are all associated with rejoicing in heaven.  This is how we will celebrate together.  The feasts of the Old Testament went on for days.  Imagine how long the parties in heaven will last!"  Larry Dick, A Taste of Heaven

"Heaven, as the eternal home of the divine Man and of all the redeemed members of the human race, must necessarily be thoroughly human in its structure, conditions, and activities.  Its joys and activities must all be rational, moral, emotional, voluntary, and active.  There must be the exercise of all the faculties, the gratification of all tastes, the development of all talent capacities, the realization of all ideals.  The reason, the intellectual curiosity, the imagination, the aesthetic instincts, the holy affections, the social affinities, the inexhaustible resources of strength and power native to the human soul must all find in heaven exercise and satisfaction....Heaven will prove the consummate flower and fruit of the whole creation and of all the history of the universe."  A.A. Hodge, Evangelical Theology

"Our perfected happiness will spring from perfected holiness.  Our moral and spiritual nature will be in faultless harmony with that exquisite environment.  Have you ever tried to imagine what it will be like to have a mind that is radiant light with no darkness at all?....with never a selfish thought, never a wish that is not translucently pure, never a motive toward others that is not transparently sincere, never a fleck of envy or jealousy or resentment or unholy desire or competitiveness; never a tremor of doubt, never a wisp of fear, or flutter of pride, or whiff of self-assertiveness?" J. Sidlow Baxter, The Other Side of Death

Yet the things of heaven that bring unspeakable joy to its' bright, beautiful, eternally youthful inhabitants bring immense pain to the envious hell-bound as can be seen in the way that even the grass of heaven hurts the feet of the ghosts.

Lewis shows that heaven is a place of eternal joy, of unbelievably beautiful happy people, colors, music, flowers, singing birds, delicious food, and never-ending light unencumbered by misery. This last was an especially good insight, for the hell-bound love misery and demand that others share their misery, which in the end means spending eternity in hell. In fact, the paradise-bound often feel that their joys and blessings must be constrained, denigrated and even hidden from the burning gaze of the envious, that they ought to share the miseries of the envious lest they be accused of hate, narrow-minded intolerance, selfishness, homophobia, heterosexism, backwardness and bigotry. Yet Lewis, speaking through the voice of George MacDonald, reveals that hatred of the good underlies the demands of envious self-idolaters:

"That sounds very merciful: but see what lurks behind it?" "What?" "The demand of the loveless and the self-imprisoned that they should be allowed to blackmail the universe: that till they consent to be happy (on their own terms) no one else shall taste joy: that theirs should be the final power; that Hell should be allowed to veto Heaven." ( ibid, The Great Divorce)

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

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

In a further discussion with McDonald, Lewis speaks of the issues of the dirty ghosts and the reality of heaven and hell. The question of choices comes up and Macdonald says this,

"Milton was right," said my Teacher. "The choice of every lost sould can be expressed in the words, 'Better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven'. ..... There is always something they prefer to joy — that is, to reality." (ibid, The Great Divorce, Allen Adams)

Lewis sees the importance of free moral agency in the choice between good and evil, submission and rebellion, agape love and self-love, for the Holy God ultimately honors our choices, whether for good or evil, as demonstrated by the unwise and wicked choices of contemporary secular and cosmic transhumanists, apostates and others of that persuasion:

"The moral dissimilarity creates hell.  For those beings who are morally dissimilar to God, hell is their final place.  For those creatures who are morally similar to God, with some likeness to God, heaven is their place because their nature belongs there."  A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God

Choosing pride and self-centeredness they unwisely reject our Savior and His offer of Paradise, and like a dog returning to its' own vomit, return to the vomit of ancient paganism revamped, revised and made 'scientifically' palatable for modern Western consumption. Thus their envy and self-idolatry lead to the conceptual murder of God and the rejection of His work on the cross, which means that by their own choice, they shut themselves out of paradise. So Lewis makes this point, saying that Hell is of their choosing:

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

Since the hell-bound willfully choose hell:

"Hell is the greatest compliment God has ever paid to the dignity of human freedom." G.K. Chesterton

The hell of hell will be the conscious thought that it is forever:

"You will look up on the throne of God, and it shall be written, "Forever!" When the damned jingle the burning irons of their torments, they shall say, "Forever!" When they howl, echo cries, "Forever!"  Charles Spurgeon, Future Punishment a Fearful Thing, Sermon 682

America: A Nation of Liars

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

As Pannekoek affirms, amoral Darwinism (biological evolution) has destroyed the foundation of Christian theism since for the most part it has supplanted the Genesis account of creation and because it is an abomination it desolates the entire Bible:

"Darwin pointed out that no supernatural designer was needed; since natural selection could account for any known form of life, there was no room for a supernatural agency in its evolution."(Issues in Evolution, Julian Huxley, p. 45)  

"Evolution comprises all the stages of the development of the universe: the cosmic, biological, and human or cultural developments" (Changing Man, Theodosius Dobzhansky, 'Science, Vol. 155' Jan. 27, 1967, p. 409)

"Most enlightened persons now accept as a fact that everything in the cosmos — from heavenly bodies to human beings — has developed and continues to develop through evolutionary processes."(Humanistic Biology, Rene Dubos, American Scientist, Vol. 53, March, 1965, p. 6)

Evolution is a Big Lie promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance which today is a full-fledged anti-God, anti-creation alternative to orthodox Christianity.

"...the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.... Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity." Michael Ruse

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned people have been pointing to the connections between Darwin's evolutionary theory and the spreading epidemic of lying, power-grabbing and lawlessness fueled by narcissism, moral insanity, hatred, despair, paranoia, psychosis, apathy and other spiritual pathologies together with the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn here in America, the malicious sexual perversion of our children, rampant hedonism, sodomy, and rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use, murder and suicide in the 'evolutionized'  West.

But for the most part, their concerns have been ignored, derided, scoffed at and mercilessly ridiculed by ignorant, anti-intellectual and cowardly masses of Americans, and rebellious Nimrods who hate our Heavenly Father.  This is also the case within the whole body of the church.   From the Roman Catholic to Eastern Orthodox and Protestant/Evangelical Church, evolutionary thinking has nearly supplanted the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and moral relativism the immutable Truth and Moral Law of the Holy Trinity. 

So completely has the evolutionary transformation been that it has successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism.  With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.

As a result, moral duty has turned upside down because "lying is accepted instead of condemned," said J. Budziszewski, a professor of government and philosophy at the University of Texas. (What We Can't Not Know, Budziszewski, p. 197)

The moment lying is accepted (politically correct) it has to be required because it is the means to an end, the way to win, to have what we want, to preserve our inflated conception of 'self,' to dominate and control others, and to shift personal guilt away from 'self' and onto 'other'.   Thus refusal to lie for the cause (i.e., evolution as 'brute facts' cause,  'gay' cause, illegal alien cause,  redistribution of wealth cause, global change cause, the latest humanistic church-growth scheme cause)  makes you guilty of betrayal, of being a spoil-sport, of being unscientific, breaking unity, finger-pointing, being hurtful, backward, insane, and hateful.

For our generation of liars there is no Moral Law, no immutable Truth, no sin, and no fear of judgment and hell.   Thus liars are free to be evil: to think evil, speak evil,  announce our evil on our t-shirts,  and commit acts of evil since there is only sovereign willful 'self' who knows only personal selfishness, ambition, physical lust and hate.  Being immeasurably proud (narcissistic), 'self' detests moral absolutes, authority, obedience, accountability, direction, rules, restraints, and truth since 'self'  already knows everything worth knowing.

A nation of liars.  This is where we are and what we are rapidly becoming.  The problem is not just in Obama, Leftists, 'gays', and abortionists but in our churches and in ourselves. If only there were evil liars somewhere,

"... insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being.”   Alexander Solzhenitsyn

The source and taproot of all lying in whatever form is pride (preference for 'self' over the Holy Trinity and other people).  Pride is the beginning of all sin,

"(and the) beginning of the pride of man is to fall away from God." ("On Nature and Grace", St. Augustine, from Ancient Christian Devotional, Thomas Oden, p. 73)

As confession and repentance is good for the soul, Budziszewski wonders if we might finally repent of our lies.  Will we at last,

"...yield ourselves to Truth, to be scraped, scoured and made honest until we can give back His light?"

If not, then the Church and our nation, individually and corporately, will continue to reap the evil consequences of the lies we have been sowing.

Evolution: Anti-Creation Religion of Secular Atheists & Powerful Occult Pantheists

In the classic work "Earth's Earliest Ages" (1876), G.H. Pember, an English theologian, said today we see men "of this nineteenth century" returning to the wisdom traditions of "long past, and modern thought sustaining its flight upon the wings of ancient lore."   Almost

"....every characteristic of antiquity seems to be returning. Open intercourse with demons is being renewed on a vast scale in the very heart of Christendom....numerous circles are carrying on magical practices (and the) ancient Mysteries (are being restored together with) mesmeric healings....astrology....and other practices....And, impossible as it would have seemed a few years ago, all these 'superstitions' are floating back....upon the tide of 'modern thought."   They come no longer veiled in mystery, "but in accordance with the spirit of the age, present themselves as the fruit of science...progress....and evolutionary philosophy."   Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, pp. 243, 245)

Today evolution and the ancient lore undergirding it, is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion,

"...a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint—and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it—the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.… Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity."   Michael Ruse
 
Michael Ruse was professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada. He was the leading anti-creationist philosopher whose flawed arguments  convinced a biased judge to rule against the Arkansas ‘balanced treatment’ of creation and evolution in schools bill proposed in 1981. At the trial, he and other anti-creationists loftily dismissed the claim that evolution was an anti-god religion.  (creation.com)
 
As Ruse admits, evolution is an anti-creation religion, a "full-fledged alternative to Christianity" promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with spirits, astral plane travels, and Illuminism, an occult nature religion that teaches that man,
 
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)  

"The figure of the Renaissance man is not complete if the place of the Magician is forgotten. Ficino was scholar, priest, and magician."   (The Occult Underground, James Webb, p. 222)

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

Occult Evolution

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

"Reason had died sometime before 1865" wrote Webb;

"After the Age of Reason came the Age of the Irrational...." Bereft of assurances of immortality after so great an attack on biblical revelation masses of hopeless people were "begging for a revelation which was scientifically demonstrable."

Karl Marx's secular-atheist dialectical-materialism (evolutionism) for example, cannot be understood apart from the inventor of the dialectic system, master-magician G.W.F. Hegel. Hegel was an important member of the occult intelligentsia. He closely studied ancient and modern wisdom traditions including ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic and Babylonian Kabala as well as mesmerism, psychic phenomena, dowsing, precognition, and sorcery. He professed belief in a pantheistic Earth Spirit, and informally aligned himself with Hermetic societies, anti-Christian God Freemasons, and the pantheist-Rosicrucian's. (Hegel and the Hermetic Tradition, Glenn Alexander Magee, 2001)

Enrico Ferri (1856-1926) provides another example.  A prominent socialist of his day and an Italian criminologist who for many years was the editor of Avanti, a socialist daily, Ferri wrote of the divine miracle-producing 'knowing' energies animating ideological systems in "Socialism and Religious Beliefs."   Ferri  confessed:

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

In a final example, Gustav Wetter expounds on the magical 'mental' and 'divine' properties animating and informing nonliving matter and dialectic:

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

  Occult Scientism & Evolution

 In his book, The Abolition of Man (1947), C.S. Lewis observed that the Renaissance had reawakened a magic view of man and the world closely connected with ancient occult sciences and pagan wisdom traditions.  Along with these arcane nature systems came conceptions of biological and spiritual transformism of one kind of lower thing to another kind of higher thing (i.e. chemicals to life, pond scum to fish; apes to man; man to god), reincarnation, karma and for secular atheists there eventually came philosophically materialist Darwinism, natural selection (a mystical choice-making energy) and determinism (mystical fatalism).

Early on Lewis understood that these two types of pagan humanism were merely two sides of the same revival of spiritually pagan nature worship. Thus he argued, occult pantheist and materialist humanism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies of naturalism united against the personal God in three Persons who created ex nihilo, His Authoritative Revelation to mankind, Original Sin, man as His spiritual image-bearer, His moral law, immutable Truth, Christian theism, and Christian-based civilization.
 
Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) reveals the common themes uniting both schools of thought in his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy." The two recurring themes of modern revolutionary/evolutionary humanism and utopianism are monism (naturalism, meaning only nature or cosmos exists) and evolutionary conceptions. At the root of these two themes 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)
 
In other words, in order for modern Nimrods to create a perfected new world order populated by a perfected New Man, two actions must occur before the 'scientific re-engineering" of the souls of Westerners and Americans can occur: the speculative murder of the living God in three Persons who created all human beings in His spiritual image and the sealing off of the way to Heaven.
 
John Taylor Gatto, former New York State and New York City Teacher of the Year, also tracked the rise of this destructive modern occult pagan intelligentsia together with the potent "interconnected shadow-government they have created to radically reshape the Western and American consciousness.  In his book, "The Underground History of American Education"  Gatto points to the Fabian socialist utopians as one of the most powerfully effective revolutionary 'change-making' organizations and notes that,
 
"...it would not be too far out of line to call the twentieth century the Fabian century." (Gatto, p. 178)
 
What 'scientific' secular-atheists aspired to be in completely reordering Christian-based Western society and the souls of men according to scientific evolutionary principles, 20th century Fabians actually were.  Much if not most of the madness, chaos and all else that has gone so horribly wrong here in America is attributable to the Fabians.
 
The first Fabians had almost all been lapsed Anglicans from Evangelical homes who became dignitaries in the Church of England:
 
"There was a Christian fringe to the London socialism of the eighties, but this too was Anglican. The Christian Socialists came together in Stewart Headlam's Guild of St. Matthew and the Land Reform Union; and the more respectable Christian Social Union, formed in 1889 -- seeking in Fabian style to permeate the Anglican Church -- soon attracted more than two thousand clerical members. Dissenting clergymen too began to find a place in the Fabian Society and the London Progressives, while Unitarian churches and centres like Stanton Coit's Ethical Church provided a meeting place for believers and idealist agnostics . . . Socialism was for all of them, the new Evangelism." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, Simon & Schuster, 1977, p. 18)

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

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

Jowett himself held that, "Scripture must be interpreted like any other book and some of the essayists were even more radical in their tone." The portents of apostasy in the Church of England were ominous:

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

Gauld records the rapid decline in spiritual aspirations among younger Cambridge men:

"Scepticism based on science flowed into and reinforced the older stream of doubt stemming from historical and ethical considerations. Their joint effect may be traced in the fact that whilst the outstanding Cambridge men of the 1840's -- B. F. Westcott, C. B. Scott, J. Llewellyn Davies, J.E.B. Mayer, Lord Alwyne Compton, E.H, Bickersteth, C. F. Mackenzie, Charles Evans, J. B. Lightfoot, E. W. Benson and F.J.A. Hort -- all took Orders (three of them becoming great clerical headmasters and six bishops), the outstanding Cambridge intellectuals of the 1870's -- the Trinity group centring on Henry Sidgwick and Henry Jackson and including Frederic Myers, G. W. and A. J. Balfour, Walter Leaf, Edmund Gurney, Arthur Verrall, F. W. Maitland, Henry Butcher and George Prothero -- tended towards agnosticism or hesitant Deism."  (Gauld, p. 64)

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

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

 The progenitor of the socialist Fabian Society was the Cambridge University spiritist group, the Ghost Society founded in 1851. The Ghost Society also spawned the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) founded in 1887:
 
"Council Members and Honorary Members of the SPR included a past Prime Minister (William Gladstone)...and a future Prime Minister (Arthur Balfour)...2 bishops; and Tennyson and Ruskin, two of the outstanding literary figures of the day (as well as) Lewis Carroll (and) a surprising number of titled persons." (Gauld, p. 140)

 Having conceptually murdered the God of Revelation, disowned their own souls, and closed the way to Heaven Fabians sought power here below, thus the over-riding interest of the S.P.R. was the spirit realm. In search of power they conducted scientific research into phenomena such as mesmeric trance, telepathy, clairvoyance, apparitions, haunted houses, seances, and all aspects of mediumism, or contact with spirits, to determine the scientific laws of physical spiritualistic phenomena.
 
 By the early 20th century, the materialist Sigmund Freud and heavily demonized Gnostic occultist Carl Jung were SPR Corresponding Members. Both men contributed to the S.P.R. Journal of Proceedings.
 
In an expose of Jung's occult tendencies Richard Noll writes:
 
"With the founding of the Society for Psychical Research in England in 1882, and the copious publications of its investigators, new models of the unconscious mind emerged. The most respected model was that of the 'subliminal self' by Frederick Myers (1843-1901), the 'mytho-poetic' (myth-making) function of which resembles Jung's later conception of a collective unconscious. Jung read widely in the literature of psychical research in medical school and his 1902 dissertation cites the work of Myers and others in this school." (Noll, The Jung Cult, 1994, pp. 31-2)
 
Above all else, revolutionary/evolutionary socialist organizations such as the Fabians were counter-establishment, anti-tradition, sexual liberationists consisting of committed Darwinian Gnostic elitists who were intolerant of the Holy God in three Persons, man as His spiritual image bearer, and every vestige of authority such as immutable Truth, Moral Law, sexual ethics, the traditional family, free market systems, individual liberties, and cumbersome processes of Americas' Constitutional Republic and  wanted to see a new order ruled by a superior caste.
 
Fabianism took its name from Roman general Fabius Cunctator who finally defeated Hannibal by methodically chipping away at his patience and will to win, an idea adopted by  Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci who called for a long, slow, stealthy march through Western and American mind and culture-shaping institutions.   In this way, Christian foundations would be destroyed, minds captured, souls re-engineered and institutions re-ordered.
 
Gatto writes that for Fabianists, Darwin was the 'weird holy man' they adored,
 
"...the man who gave them a theory inspirationally equal to god-theory, around which a new organization of society could be justified." (p. 180)
 
To realize the tremendous task Fabian Nimrods assigned themselves, Gatto writes that we,
 
"...need to reflect...on Darwin's shattering books, 'The Origin of Species' (1859) and 'The Descent of Man' (1871), each arguing in its own way that....children are (the evolved product of) their race of origin, some 'favored'...some not" (Gatto, p. 179)
 
Together, Darwin's books issued a license to America's ruling caste to justify moral relativism, the imposition of evolutionary teaching, forced schooling, perverse sex education, and much more, all destructive of America's traditional Christian-based Republic.  Gatto writes that from an evolutionary standpoint, our government controlled schools,
 
"...are the indoctrination phase of a gigantic breeding experiment...Many (children are genetically) a racial menace (while) the rest...thought of as soldiers in genetic combat, the moral equivalent of war....For governments, children could no longer be considered individuals but were regarded as categories, rungs on a biological ladder.  Evolutionary science pronounced the majority useless mouths waiting for nature to dispense with entirely." (Gatto, p. 179)
 
Whereas Christian salvation was formerly held to be a matter between Jesus Christ the Word Incarnate and the individual and the aim of Christian-based Europe and America had for centuries been fixed on the work of winning liberties for the individual against the oppressive State, the Age of Darwin brought an end to all of this.  By the turn of the century the Fabian program based in revelations from Transcended Masters (fallen angels) and Darwinism was spreading quickly through the best colleges and universities capturing the minds of America's best and brightest issuing in the view that rights and privileges are the preserve of the superior caste in control of an omniscient mystical god-State together with salvation as a pantheist conception based in ideas of collectivity.

Secular historians of the nineteenth century agree that the dominant figures in the occult spiritist/socialist movements were mainly lapsed Evangelicals and Anglican clergymen preceded by Renaissance rebels against God.  The onslaught of skepticism, atheism, agnosticism, higher Biblical criticism and dehistorization of the Genesis account together with moral relativism, Darwinism and occult New Age spirituality assaulting the tattered foundations of our Republic were inspired by Protestant/Evangelical heresy together with an unhealthy interest in spiritism. Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie explain this strange anomaly:
 
"The lesson instilled by Evangelical parents had been given a secular form. Evolution or what (Sidney) Webb called Zeitgeist, had taken the place of Providence, yet what Webb described as 'blind social forces...which went on inexorably working out social salvation' did not relieve men of their moral responsibility. Victorian religion had taught that a belief in God's purposes must be accompanied by an effort to discern and advance them. Socialists who substituted a secular religion for the faith of their youth felt the same compulsion." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, p. 115-116)
 
The Antichrist

A brilliant visionary, Robert Hugh Benson (1871-1914), an English Catholic priest, predicted that evolutionary thinking would prepare Westerners and Americans not only to embrace the 'new' spiritually pagan religion but to worship and adore Antichrist, for this human-god (Mr. Felsenburgh) would present himself as the first perfected product of nature and evolutionary forces. (p. 85) 

Mr. Felsenburgh transfixes men, and they excitedly declare they have seen,

"...the Son of Man,' the 'Savior of the world,' we knew Him in our hearts as soon as we saw Him, as soon as He stood there. It was like a glory around his head (and now we) understand it all... It was He for whom we have waited so long; and He has come, bringing Peace and Goodwill in His hands." (pp. 85, 89)

Christianity failed, it divided people. But now Jehovah is gone. He never existed at all except as a hideous nightmare. Now at long last man's natural Savior has arisen:

"The reign of God has really begun (and) we are all partakers of God" because God is in everything, including all men...."Jehovah has fallen. He is in His grave." In His place is the evolved Son of Man, a god indeed and a man as well..."a god because human and a man because so divine." (ibid, pp. 93, 95)

The Green Dragon

By the mid 1880's the Green Dragon---the spirit of madness, heresy, apostasy, moral relativism, occult magic, spiritism, nature worship and evolutionary thinking working within lapsed Evangelicals was already creeping into the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Church.  Today Christendom is dead and the spirit of green-pagan madness is bringing our Republic to ruin while steadily injecting its' abominations into the whole body of the sleeping American Church. Aided and abetted by falsifiers of the Revealed Word who have "penetrated the Church" with a mist of lies resulting in narcissistic self-affirmation, emotional ecstasy, moral relativism, acceptance of evolutionary philosophy and other ancient wisdom traditions along with liberation from sin and hell,

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

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

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

Rise of the Global Scientific Dictatorship (Nimrods' New Tower)

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

"Never in the history of the United States have we witnessed crimes committed on the scale and scope of the present day by both private and state elites.....the super-wealthy and their families have as much as $32 trillion (USD) of hidden assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenue! This study excluded such non-financial assets as real estate, precious metals, jewels, yachts, race horses, luxury vehicles and so on. Of the $32 trillion in hidden assets, $23 trillion is held by the super-rich of North America and Europe ."

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

 In affirmation of  Petras well-researched conclusions, Karen Hudes, a former insider at the World Bank  reports that a treacherous global financial system dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve dominate the pillars of America's government and control the media to cover up its crimes:

"What is really going on is that the world's resources are being dominated by this group," she explained, adding that the "corrupt power grabbers" have managed to dominate the media as well. "They're being allowed to do it." (World Bank Insider Blows Whistle on Corruption, Federal Reserve, Alex Newman, New American, 22 May 2013)

Hudes, an attorney who spent some two decades working in the World Bank's legal department, has observed the machinations of the criminal network up close:

"I realized we were now dealing with something known as state capture, which is where the institutions of government are co-opted by the group that's corrupt... The pillars of the U.S. government – some of them – are dysfunctional because of state capture; this is a big story, this is a big cover up." (ibid)

This modern power elite are the spiritual heirs of Illuminist philosophies from the time of Babylon--- the Ancient Mysteries, Cabala, Egyptian Hermeticism, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnosticism, Luciferian Theosophy, esoteric Free Masonry and occult New Age spirituality, thus they are Luciferians said William Still in his classic work, "New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies." Still summarizes Luciferianism as an occult nature religion that teaches that man,
 
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (Still, p. 27)
 
The goal of Illuminism is worldwide totalitarianism.  During the 20th century Illuminism took the form of scientific socialism and scientific communism.  Today it is Technocracy, a scientific dictatorship calling for the radical transformation of traditional Western economics, government, law, energy, Christianity, and humanity,  which is why it maliciously fosters the atheism, amorality, chaos, blood-letting and revolution necessary for the undermining and overthrow of already existing governments.  (Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, Patrick M. Wood)
 
The world is being actively transformed by the 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)

Huxley concluded that Technocracy produces scientific dictatorship designed to scientifically engineer, manipulate, dominate and control the worlds' wealth and resources and micro-manage every human being in every detail of his life.  The scientific and evolutionary system itself would become a god that was worshipped and questioning any aspect of it, such as the validity of evolution, or any decision or outcome would be tantamount to blasphemy.

 Technocracy would be imposed most successfully on people incapable of, or uninterested in understanding it.   Such people would fall prey most readily to psychological manipulation and conditioning that makes them accept the most flagrant violations of themselves, their children and reality because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening.

Green Economics

According to Patrick Wood, our existing price-based economic system is being reinvented with new and untested 'green' economics theories such as carbon footprints. Carbon footprints supposedly equal the amount of carbon dioxide allegedly produced by driving your car, running your refrigerator and small appliances, and cutting your grass, for example.  If you use too much, and your carbon footprint is too big, green Technocrats either want the government to punish you or ration the amount of energy you are allowed to receive. The ultimate goal is that the personal energy consumption of every human being should be closely monitored and controlled. 

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) 

Green Law 

As the transformation of our political system of Constitutional Rule of Law issues in relativism, it serves as a license for installation of a system of autocratic fiat regulations invented and enforced by unelected and unaccountable green Technocrats.

Green Religion 

America's founding Christian-based worldview and moral system of Judeo-Christian ethics, having been consistently excluded from government, school, and law is being radidly supplanted with a Humanistic nature religion based on Transhumanism, Evolution, Scientism and Relativism.

The process of transformation has for many years been aided and abetted by weak, accommodating and apostate theologians such as the Hindu-pantheist evolutionary scientist Teilhard de Chardin.   Teilhard encouraged Christians to submit to the process of evolution because the promise of this living force is godhood through fusion with the substance of God:

"Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is a magnificent means of feeling more at one with God. In (the old, traditional form of Christianity), the universal domination of Christ could...still be regarded as an extrinsic and superimposed power. In a spiritually converging world, this 'Christic' energy acquires an urgency and intensity of another order altogether." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p. 590)

Christianity is being transformed into a syncretic green evolutionary nature religion.  The paganization of Christianity is funded by major globalist foundations such as the Carnegie Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Rockefeller Foundation, William and Flora Hewlitt Foundation, David and Lucille Packard Foundation, and Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.  All of these funders are tightly connected to members of the Trilateral Commission.  Over the years, prominent Trilateral membership has included such luminaries as Henry Kissinger, Paul Volker, Robert McNamara, Robert S. Ingersol, and Madeleine K. Albright.

Green URI

The United Nations sponsored United Religions Initiative was founded in 1993 by William Swing, Bishop of the Episcopal Church Diocese of California as an interfaith organization dedicated to binding Christianity and the nature religions of the world into one "whole thing," meaning a universal pagan spirituality touting the idea that all roads lead to heaven. In 2000 the URI co-sponsored the World Millennium Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders held at the United Nations in New York City.   Among the religions represented were Hinduism, Buddhism, Zorostrianism, Confucianism, Ba'hai, Christianity, Indigenous, Judaism, Shinto, Jainism, Sikhism, Islam and Taoism with a heavy representation of mystical eastern religions.  

Ted Turner delivered a key-note address denouncing his childhood Christian faith because,

....it was intolerant because it taught we were the only ones going to heaven." (ibid, p. 122)

The organizations and individual Technocrats who have drawn close to the URI are striking:

"The World Economic Forum, Earth Charter Initiative, Ted Turner, Ford Foundation, Dee Hock (inventor of the VISA credit card and founder and former CEO of VISA International), Maurice Strong (Canadian billionaire and organizer of the U.N.'s 1992 Rio Conference). and Bill Gates among others." (ibid, p. 122)

In "Maurice Strong---The Most Dangerous Man in the World," Tom DeWeese wrote:

"Maurice Strong and his buddies are the driving force behind a new age pagan religion known as Gaia. It is pure nature worship. Strong owns a 63 thousand acre ranch in Colorado called Baca Grande that will never be bothered by the Forest Service or the Army Corp of Engineers. Because Baca Grande is the Mecca for Gaia worshippers and mystics. Here, Strong has built a temple to a Babylonian Sun God. Baca Grande, Strong believes, is the “Vatican City” of the New World Order."

"Maurice Strong is also a director of the Temple of Understanding in New York City, where pagan rituals and earth worship include escorting sheep and cattle to the alter for a blessing. Elephants and camels walk the aisles. A soprano sax is used to create the sound of the wolf moaning its extinction at the hand of man. Here, Vice President Al Gore delivered a “sermon” as worshippers marched to the alter with bowls of compost and worms."

"This wacky scene is the basis for today’s environmental agenda that has grown way beyond a call for clean air and the recycling of plastic bottles and newspapers. In Maurice Strong’s Gaia- driven world – it’s OK for a beaver to build a dam – but not man. It’s OK for a bear to fish in the lake – but not man." 
(Liberty News Online)

In addition to its agenda to transform Christianity, the far-reaching tentacles of Technocracy include such programs as Sustainable Development, Green Economy, Global Warming/Climate Change, Cap and Trade, Agenda 21, Common Core State Standards, Conservation Easements, Public-Private Partnerships, Smart Growth, Land Use, energy Smart Grid, de-urbanization and de-population.

Technocracy is grounded on a mystical evolutionary pantheist cosmogony that views the earth as a whole living organism (Gaia) consisting of many interdependent parts (smaller whole things).  In this scheme of things, humanity is one "whole thing" without parts, meaning there are no individual persons, thus no individual rights because man is not a person created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons but rather a soulless product of evolution acting on matter over billions of years.
 
Technocrats are modern God-hating Nimrods intent upon building a New Age utopian kingdom on earth marked by pleasure, hedonism, sorcery, occult magic and man as god.  In his book, "Inside the New Age Nightmare," Randal Baer has collected chilling prophecies from New Age Transhumanists:

Ken Carey, a New Age author and channel (receiver of revelations from spirits) uses the biblical language of the sifting of wheat:

"The Great Day of Purification has begun, a short but essential cycle of division that will gather those who promote fear and violence (i.e., faithful, orthodox Christians and Jews) and separate them from this season of the world as chaff is separated from wheat at threshing."   (Capturing the Pagan Mind, Peter Jones, p. 299)

J. Randolph Price through his spirit guide, Asher, reveals that all who deny the divinity of man are of Antichrist and that,

"....nature will soon enter her cleansing cycle during which those of lower vibratory rates will be purified off the planet." (ibid)

Spirit Master controlled Technocratic Transhumanist Robert Muller, prophet of the U.N., father of Common Core Curriculum and former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall all politically incorrect thinkers, especially anti-evolutionists:

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

Technocracy symbolizes the deep religious desires of contemporary God-hating Nimrods and like-minded travelers of the broad way who in their rejection of our Lord Jesus Christ and physical resurrection, seek autonomous self-creation, transcendence and self-redemption, thus are incarnations,

"....of the ancient, deeply religious endeavor 'to become like God' – infinitely wise, omnipotent, autonomous, and immortal." (Mircea Eliade, "The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and Structures of Alchemy," Dr. Erdmann)

They endeavor to become like God but shall instead,

"...drink of the wine of the wrath of God and be tormented with fire and brimstone." (Rev. 14:10) And the devil and his legion who deceived them shall likewise be "thrown into the lake of burning sulfur..." (Rev. 20:10)

Scapegoating: When the Guilty Project Their Evils Onto Others

"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 the goat 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, selfishness, self-indulgence and pride hinders and blinds the soul's vision of itself as it really is. Thus Truth and the revelation of its' 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)

Under Sharia, women who have been raped can be stoned to death by their rapists. After living in Turkey for two years, with over a year spent living among the local nationals in the village of Adana, I know what evil lurks beneath such brutality: scapegoating. 
 
 Scapegoating occurs when the sinful refuse to accept personal responsibility for their own sins, which can run the gamut from self-centeredness, hatred of truth, lust, gluttony, envy of another, coveting the property of another, or addiction to sex.  Thus the guilty man or woman with the dirty conscience points the finger of blame at an innocent person, meaning the guilty project the responsibility for their own evils upon a scapegoat in order that they can crucify the innocent in place of themselves. 
 
 In the case of a woman who has been raped, her self-indulgent rapist obviously lacks self-control in tandem with a contemptuous view of females and a self-gratifying superior sense of himself. Because he refuses to honestly look at his own evil thoughts and actions he both justifies them and projects the responsibility for them onto a scapegoat.  Thus his sins are "not" his fault but that of the woman who happened to be in the wrong place at the right time.  In other words, if it weren't for her none of this would have happened, meaning the rapist would not have done what he did if not for her. Moreover, rather than defending the innocent woman other men and yes, wives and mothers will support the crucifixion of the already victimized woman rather than the guilty who might be a son, husband or brother.  All of them will close their eyes and ears to the stoning (murder) of the scapegoat because none of them will take personal responsibility for their own sins. 

"Truth is lacking, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. The LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice."  Isaiah 59:15
 
Here in America, we witness the rapid rise of a scapegoating society because a majority of Americans (a consensus) within and without the Christian Church reject the eternally unchanging Truth and Moral Law of the Triune God in favor of their own "sacred opinions" and "choices" and thus refuse to accept personal responsibility for their own sins but rather scapegoat other people who they unjustly accuse of hate, homophobia, racism, sexism, intolerance, hate speech, fear-mongering, and mental illness. Thus homosexuals scapegoat "hateful homophobic" straight males and females, pedophiles scapegoat parents trying to protect their own children, haters of truth (liars) scapegoat the truthful, the indecent scapegoat the decent,  the envious crucify the human objects of their envy, the thief and murderer scapegoat their victims, and sinful self-indulgent unfaithful Christians 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. 
 
Projection of our own sins onto a scapegoat does not take away our sin nor cleanse our conscience, and to die in our sin means eternal outer darkness:
 
"For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie."  Revelation 22:15
 
Moreover, selfish, self-indulgent Christians living in sin must never "think that a dead or disobedient faith" will save them said Matthew Henry,
 
"....for the First and the Last has declared that those alone are blessed who do his commandments." Revelation, "is a book that shuts out from heaven all wicked and unrighteous persons, particularly those who love and make lies, therefore cannot itself be a lie. There is no middle place or condition. Jesus, who is the Spirit of prophecy, has given his churches this morning-light of prophecy, to assure them of the light of the perfect day approaching. All is confirmed by an open and general invitation to mankind, to come and partake freely of the promises and of the privileges of the gospel. The Spirit, by the sacred word, and by convictions and influence in the sinner's conscience, says, Come to Christ for salvation; and the bride, or the whole church, on earth and in heaven, says, Come and share our happiness. Lest any should hesitate, it is added, Let whosoever will, or, is willing, come and take of the water of life freely. May every one who hears or reads these words, desire at once to accept the gracious invitation. All are condemned who should dare to corrupt or change the word of God, either by adding to it, or taking from it."  Matthew Henrys' Concise Commentary

The Progressive Myth: Sociopaths & America's Rising Tyranny of Evil

Evolutionary Progressive Humanism's most enduring myth is grounded on the delusional notion that though man is born good he is the slave of the Holy Triune God, His moral law, Original Sin, traditional one-man-one-woman marriage, procreation, Western tradition and culture.  If as the myth goes, he is liberated from his slavery his innate goodness will fully manifest itself.

In support of this fantasy are three others. First, man and society are evolving ever upward toward a newer, more perfect state...a perfected man and a heaven on earth. Second, science and technology have brought liberated men to the brink of ending all suffering, in particular, death itself. And third, liberated men are gaining control over evil itself.

C.E.M Joad, a 20th century philosopher spent most of his life embracing the Progressive myth and loudly proclaiming his distate for the supernatural Triune God.  However the catastrophic events of the 20th century finally wore down Joad's delusional optimism.

As he witnessed so-called "enlightened" Progressives and like-minded disciples make the same stupid, discouraging and even outright evil choices over and over again, commit the same crimes again and again, and lie and rationalize their wickedness over and over again, he was forced to conclude that his faith in man was wrong and the Progressive myth had been rendered utterly implausible by the events of the last forty years (1914-1954).   It is because we,

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

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

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

  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, as the Progressive myth claimed. In essence its' findings agreed with Joad's loss of faith in man's innate goodness. 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."

The completely selfish and self-centered can grow up to be far worse than thieves and killers. Their narcissism can become so inflated, their conscience so depraved and hardened and their will so given to evil that God gives them over to a reprobate mind (Romans 1: 18-28) and  they become psychopaths.

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

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

What are some of the things a sociopath might say and do if he or she were "completely free of internal restraints" and no one ever questioned his or her cold-bloodedness?

If the sociopath were Gloria Filax, a Progressive at the University of Manitoba, she would demand that all males and females be required to become polymorphously perverse.  She would find the traditional family guilty of oppression, hate, and intolerance. Moving on to 'straight' males and females, she would find them guilty of heteronormativity (of being normal) and go on to declare that sinful heteronormatives are guilty of propping up the traditional family. Finally, she would declare that schools,

"have a responsibility to provide Ob/Scene education; that is, safe sex education.' (Ob/Scenely Polymorphously Perverse Sex Education, Gloria Filax)

If he was biologist William Etkin, he would declare that human beings are nothing "but fish made over..." (Greg L. Bahnsen, Pushing the Antithesis, p. 224)

But if he was the consummately evil Laventi Beria, Stalin's right hand man, he would say:

"(man) must be degraded from a spiritual being to an animalistic pattern. He must think of himself as an animal, capable of only animalistic reactions. He must no longer think of himself as capable of spiritual endurance, or nobility. By animalizing man his state of mind can be ordered and enslaved." (Degradation and Shock; Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics, Chapter viii)

And if he was the evil-minded Vladimir Lenin he would receive enormously sadistic pleasure from the idea that,

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

Hence with human beings no longer created in the spiritual image of the Triune God but rather products of evolution acting on matter, he would as did Lenin, exercise godlike power over life and death. He would be,

"the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species and be at liberty to decide who should be exterminated on the 'scientific' basis that they represented a stage of humanity that evolution had surpassed." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)

If the sociopath was one of Lenin's evil-minded apparatchiks, he would be at liberty to say,

"There is no such thing as a woman being violated by a man; he who says that a violation is wrong denies the October Communist Revolution. To defend a violated woman is to reveal oneself as a bourgeois and a partisan of private property." (The Naked Communist, Skousen, p. 73)

If he spoke through the Village Voice he would describe evil as a cultural milestone:

"This week (March 2-3, 2000) New York University hosts a conference to celebrate Dennis Cooper, the 47-year-old writer who has come closer than anyone to reanimating the spirit of Burroughs." A homosexual pedophile, Coopers' "two great themes are murder and rimming..." A dedicated young following  of both sexes and all sexualities "has honed in on Cooper, and his name keeps popping up on the pomo pedagogy circuit."  "Every work of Cooper's 'produces a minor insurrection on several levels'....his work is as dangerous and exhilarating as Madame Bovary (though) in Cooper's case, the object of forbidden desire is...a drugged-out, dissociated boy, the kind of kid who could get picked up on a freeway, taken to some basement, raped, and disemboweled." (Strange Fire: The Invasion of Pagan Spirituality, SCP Journal, Vol. 25:2-26:1 2002)

A tyranny of evil is spreading itself over and across our country like an impenetrable black smog, and we cannot understand its' manifestations---its' seething hatred of God, its' treachery, pathological lying, obscenity, perversity, blasphemy, its' deliberate subversion and perversion of our children, its power grabbing, narcissism and psychopathy so obviously endemic here in America and throughout the West 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..." (John Hallowell, The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George Nash, p. 53)

Man is not born good, as self-deluded Progressive Humanists claim. Nor is man 'evolving' to some higher, more godlike spiritual state. This is pure fantasy. Evil does not reside in brain lesions, social constructs, heteronormativity, institutions such as traditional marriage and moral absolutes but rather within man himself.

Evil cuts through the hearts of every man and woman, thus no concept gives "deeper insight into the enigma that is man" than original sin. Evil is not just a "bad dream," 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)

As a people, we have allowed ourselves to forget this---to our own and our children's peril.

Kundalini Spirit & the "New" Contemplative or Centering Prayer

Contemplative or centering prayer is becoming more and more popular within the Evangelical church. Seminaries and Christian youth organizations are particularly attracted by this as are many respected leaders.   What is lacking in this enthusiastic acceptance however is discernment. Contemplative prayer is being endorsed and propagated by Christians who have done no research on it.

The Christian tradition appears to have originated with some of the early desert Fathers and a great deal of controversy surrounds this tradition, both for and against it.  

Over the centuries, Christian contemplative prayer has been called by various names such as the Prayer of Faith, Prayer of the Heart, Prayer of Simplicity, Prayer of Simple Regard, Active Recollection, Active Quiet and Acquired Contemplation.

St. Teresa defines Christian contemplative prayer as:

".....nothing else than a close sharing between friends; it means taking time frequently to be alone with him who we know loves us.' Contemplative prayer seeks him 'whom my soul loves'. It is Jesus, and in him, the Father. We seek him, because to desire him is always the beginning of love, and we seek him in that pure faith which causes us to be born of him and to live in him. In this inner prayer we can still meditate, but our attention is fixed on the Lord himself. (The Catechism of the Catholic Church) 

Over and against St. Teresa's definition is Arthur Schopenhaur's version. Schopenhauer was a famous philosopher known for introducing eastern Mysticism into the West. Whereas the Christian tradition centers the mind on Jesus Christ, the eastern tradition requires an emptying of the mind in order that it can center on 'self,' the "Force," or perhaps the "Master," depending on the occult tradition.  Schopenhauer explains that the eastern mystic starts from,

"....his inner, positive, individual experience in which he finds himself as the eternal and only being..." (Schopenhauer, "The World as Will and Representation)

The Eastern mystic seeks "god within" because "everything is god" while the Christian mystic seeks communion with the Word become Flesh, the Creator of everything that the Eastern mystic worships as "god within everything."    

Schopenhauer brought Eastern mysticism into the West and by the mid-seventies three monks wanted to introduce Christians to an Eastern-infused hybrid they called contemplative or centering prayer. The premise of this hybridized version is pantheistic (God is all) and panentheistic (God is in all).

This is how they did it:

"They invited to the abbey ecumenically oriented Catholic theologians, an Eastern Zen master, Joshu Roshi Sasaki, who offered week long retreats on Buddhist meditation, and a former Trappist, Paul Marechal, who taught transcendental meditation. The interaction between these Christian monks and practitioners of Eastern meditation helped distill the practice of Christian contemplative prayer into a form that could be easily practiced by a diverse array of "non-monastic" believers: priests, nuns, brothers and lay men and women."  (Joseph G. Sandman, America Magazine 9/9/00; online source: Contemplative Spirituality Comes to Modern Day Christianity, lighthousetrailsresearch)

Cistercian priest Thomas Keating, who has inspired many Christian leaders, including Brennan Manning and Quaker mystic Richard Foster who favorably quotes the heavily demonized Carl Jung in the second chapter of his book, "Celebration of Discipline,"  is known as a 'living Spiritual Teacher' or Master of hybridized contemplative prayer. Terms like "spiritual master" actually come straight out of Eastern mysticism and are tantamount to "guru." In the foreword to Philip St. Romain's book, "Kundalini Energy and Christian Spirituality," Keating acknowledges that kundalini is the same as the "new" Christian contemplative. He states:

"Since this energy [kundalini] is also at work today in numerous persons who are devoting themselves to contemplative prayer, this book is an important contribution to the renewal of the Christian contemplative tradition. It will be a great consolation to those who have experienced physical symptoms arising from the awakening of kundalini in the course of their spiritual journey ... Most spiritual disciplines world-wide insist on some kind of serious discipline before techniques of awakening kundalini are communicated. In Christian tradition ... the regular practice of the stages of Christian prayer ... contemplation are the essential disciplines.."  (Kundalini Energy (Serpent Power) Same as Contemplative Silence, lighthousetrailsresearch) 

Keating explains that spiritual directors are needed to help guide the Christian contemplative because of the powerful and dangerous nature of kundalini. He adds that "spiritual directors" may need to consult with "Eastern teachers in order to get a fuller understanding" because the awakening of kundalini causes the following symptoms:

*Burning hot or ice cold streams moving up the spine.
* Pains in varying locations throughout the body.
* Vibrations, unease, or cramps in legs and other parts of body.
* Fast pulse and increased metabolism.
* Disturbance in the breathing–and/or heart function.
* Sensitivity to sound, light, smell, and proximity of other people.
* Mystical/religious experiences.
* Parapsychological abilities.
* Persistent anxiety or anxiety attacks, confusion
* Insomnia, manic high spirits or deep depression. Energy loss.
* Impaired concentration and memory.
* Total isolation due to inability to communicate inner experiences out.
* Experiences of possession and poltergeist phenomena 

What is Kundalini spirit?  Kundalini is a serpent goddess (demon) "....who lies asleep at the base of the spine, coiled three and a half times around the first chakra."  (snakespirit.webs.com)

Kundalini is based on the occultic chakra system where a supposed universal energy, coiled at the base of the spine, flows through human beings and through all of creation, uniting all and acknowledging divinity in all things and all people. Through strenuous yoga techniques, kundalini (serpent power) uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body. Serpent power is considered,

"(to be a) concentrated field of intelligent cosmic, invisible energy absolutely vital to life beginning in the base of the spine as a man or a woman begins to evolve in their first incarnation." (The Donning International Encyclopedic Psychic Dictionary, p. 343, ibid, Teichrib

 With no questions asked, Fosters' and Brennans' kundalini-inspired brand of contemplative teachings are being enthusiastically accepted by undiscerning Evangelicals such as Beth Moore who teach these occult techniques to other undiscerning Christians in Bible studies and elsewhere.    

The "new" contemplative prayer is a dangerous occult technique that shares in common with the demon-haunted Carl Jung's transpersonal and depth psychology, occult New Age, Mind Science, New Thought, the Alpha Course, Silva Method, Word of Faith, Positive Imaging, Visualization/Dreaming, and the multi-million dollar best-sellers "A Course in Miracles" and "The Secret"  the idea that "God and psychic power is within:"

"People go through their whole lives chasing everything in the material world, and they fail to discover the greatest treasure of all, which is within them. Shut your eyes to the outside world. Direct your thoughts and words inside of you. The Master within you is the key to all the treasures in the world." (Rhonda Byrne, "The Secret Daily Teachings")

"Since the unconscious is God all along, we may further define the goal of spiritual growth to be the attainment of godhood by the conscious self." (A Different Drum, M. Scott Peck)

"....all is mind and...everything is governed by law (thus man) can create, or have created for him from his own thinking. He can create such a strong mental atmosphere of success that its power of attraction will be irresistible. He can send his thoughts throughout the world and have it bring back to him whatever he wants." (Creative Mind and Success, Ernest Holmes, New Thought practitioner)

"Your unconscious mind (has a) power that turns wishes into realities when the wishes are strong enough." ("Positive Imaging," Norman Vincent Peale, 1982, p. 77)

Word Faith teacher Kenneth Copeland tells people to visualize any image,

"...that you get down inside you that is so vivid when you close your eyes you see it, it'll come to pass. When God came at the Tower of Babel, He said, 'Anything they can imagine, they can do." (Inner Image of the Covenant, side 2, Copeland)

Yonggi Cho similarly teaches that through visualizing and dreaming you will,

"....incubate that which we want God to do for us....If you have not visualized clearly in your heart exactly what you hope for, it cannot become a reality to you..." (The Fourth Dimension, Vol. 1, Yonggi Cho, 1979, 9-35, vol. 2, 18-33). 

 The "new" contemplative prayer will eventually open the doors and windows of the mind, making undiscerning Christians susceptible to familiar spirits, shadow people, Transcended Masters, Space Brothers, disembodied voices, night terrors and other horrors.

The Grand Inquisitor: Spirit of Antichrist, Murderer of God, & Time-Changer

The idea of Satanism is an uncomfortable subject for many people today.  It wasn't always this way.  Fyodor Dostoevsky for example, held that revolutionaries such as Karl Marx were possessed but would only become aware of it until too late.  
 
While Satanism is the knowing worship of Satan and is historically rare there is also historically widespread unconscious Satanism (1 Cor. 10:20).   Modern examples of unconscious Satanism are occult traditions such as the Illuminati, Luciferian Theosophists, inner circle Mason initiates, and New Age insider David Spangler.   According to Spangler, Lucifer is the angel of evolution:

“The true light of this great being can only be recognized when one's own eyes can see with the light of the Christ, the light of the inner sun. Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into the New Age, which is the age of man's wholeness, each of us is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation, the particular doorway through which the individual must pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and his wholeness.”

"Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free, that is the Luciferic Initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.” (David Spangler, Reflections on the Christ, Findhorn Lecture Series, 3rd ed., 1981; p. 45)  

The modern occult religious traditions of the spiritually pagan American and global 'elite' classes for example, are revamped versions of ancient Mystery Wisdom Teachings. In affirmation, Corinne McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson, the politically influential co-authors of " of "Spiritual Politics: Changing the World from the Inside Out," reveal that  concealed behind today's spiritual politics, such as Communism (totalitarian pagan state), are Ageless Wisdom teachings preserved by occultists since the Egyptian pantheon (27th-30th centuries B.C) and handed down over the ages to modern occultists in the time of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment and on into our own time:

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

In the classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages" English theologian G.H. Pember (1837-1910) examines the explosion of Ageless Wisdom---spiritism (open intercourse with evil spirits), ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, Theosophy, Buddhism, reincarnation, karma, the Mysteries, astrology, mesmeric healings and evolutionary thinking sweeping across Christendom

It was during the Renaissance that many influential Christians at the highest levels of Church and society had returned to the occult Ageless Wisdom Teachings.  Pember observes that ancient occult traditions are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the emerging occult brotherhood as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given,

"...to the initiates of the Hermetic, Orphic, Eleusinian, and Cabbalistic mysteries, and were familiar to Chaldean Magi, Egyptian Priests, Hindu Occultists, Essenes, Therapeutae Gnostics, and Theurgic Neo-Platonists." (Pember, pp.243-244)

One theme stands out in all Ageless Wisdom traditions said Dr. Gary North, and that is monism.  Monism erases the Creator-creature distinction and is common to all occult systems,

"...from the magical sects of the East to the gnostics of the early church period, and from there unto today's preachers of cosmic evolution and irresistible karma." (Monism teaches) "...we are all gods in the making.  Out of One has proceeded the many, and back into One are the many traveling.  Eastern mystics, philosophical Hegelians, and followers of Teilhard de Chardin are all agreed on the reality of ultimate monism."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 60)

 In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, "The Brothers Karamazov," (1879-1880) the Grand Inquisitor is an unconscious Satanist.  He is an important part of the novel because the character represents Dostoevsky's penetrating insight into the fallen human psyche and one of its' most important endowments: moral freedom.   In particular, the Grand Inquisitor is the spirit of Antichrist; a type of Nimrod; the accuser and murderer of God revealed through Jesus Christ and  the symbol of the principle of nihilism (negation) and rebellion in mortal men such Hegel, Max Stirner, Karl Marx, and Nietzsche, who though not the actual devil, are of one mind with him, thus do his work.   They are unconscious Satanists.

The Grand Inquisitor is a god-man who has usurped the throne of God. He is a conscious swindler, a Big Liar who knows that God revealed through Jesus Christ exists, yet perversely chooses to rebel against and conceptually murder Him despite that he knows his own life is by the grace of the personal God of life and revelation. 
 
In "Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor," Ellis Sandoz writes that when Marx found himself compelled to negate his own being (inner person, soul/spirit, self) because of his perverse desire to show that "man owes his existence (only) to man," and to establish that the "entire so-called history of the world is nothing but the creation of man," he virtually recapitulated Aquinas' argument:
 
"A being only considers himself independent when he stands on his own feet; and he only stands on his own feet when he owes his existence to himself.  A man who lives by the grace of another regards himself as a dependent being (and) I live completely by the grace of another if I owe him not only the maintenance of my life, but if he has, moreover, created my life---if he is the source of my life.  When it is not of my own creation, my life has necessarily a source of this kind outside of it.  The creation is therefore an idea very difficult to dislodge from popular consciousness.  The fact that nature and man exist in their own account is incomprehensible to it, because it contradicts everything tangible in practical life."(pp. 113-114)
 
Being of one mind with the devil, the Grand Inquisitor (Marx) suggests that in order to affirm that man is god, the denial of the existence of God has in the past been necessary (i.e., Nimrod), thus to further his swindle, he asserts antitheism rather than atheism, which is merely a negation of God that nevertheless postulates the existence of man through this negation.  The complete negation of God requires that man and nature (matter, energy, time, space) be of the same substance.  As nature is soulless, then so is man.
 
For the conscious swindler, the prudent course is to flatly deny the existence of God and enforce this dictate by way of psychological manipulation and if need be, by murder.  Psychologically manipulate and terrorize believers into confusion, apathy and groveling submission, and even better, accommodation of the Christian Church to the world system by way of harsh scorn, cruel ridicule, scoffing, slander and charges of insanity. 

After seizing control of Russia, Marx's disciples enforced the denial of God, mainly by way of murder.  According to Yuri Martov, the head of the Mensheviks, from the first day of their coming to power the Bolsheviks began to kill.  Wholesale murders were organized at the instigation of the Bolsheviks.  Tens of thousands were murdered without even a trial.  Martov had a premonition:

"The beast has licked hot human blood.  The man-killing machine is brought into motion...The reign of terror established by the Bolsheviks since October 1917 has filled the air of Russian fields with vapors of human blood."  (The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression, p. 736)

Researchers put the total number of deaths at around sixty million men, women, and children, with approximately half being Christians. According to Stephanie Courtois in the conclusion of The Black Book of Communism, the Darwinian biological strain of thinking enables us to understand,

"....why so many of the crimes of Communism were crimes against humanity, and how Marxist-Leninist ideology managed to justify these crimes..." (ibid, p. 751)
 
Returning to the Inquisitor, he also knows that if men are deprived of the living God they will worship something else.  Thus as Marx, the Inquisitor proffers the natural (pagan) religion of scientific socialism and dialectical materialism (evolutionary theory).  But when Darwin published his own theory, the Inquisitor immediately perceived its' philosophical materialist implications.  The idea that humans evolved by chance and natural selection from a process of evolutionary dynamics working on primordial water or lifeless chemicals lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and provided the scientific framework to support the economic infrastructure on which Marx could build his godless communist utopia:
 
"...the biggest thing going for Darwinism was that it finally broke the tyranny in which Christianity had held the minds of men for so many centuries." (F. Hoyle and C. Wickramasinghe, "Evolution From Space," 1983, pp. xiii-xxii, 81 and 145)
 
Marxist Communism & National Socialism: Types of Nimrod's Tower 
 
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 (all that exists is the substance of nature) and evolutionary conceptions. At the root of these two themes 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)

In order for god-men to raise up a new Tower (create a God-less world and a new man):

"the order of being must be obliterated (and reinterpreted) as essentially under man's control." Taking control "requires the decapitation of being — the murder of God." (Eric Voegelin, "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," p. xv)
 
In other words, the Grand Inquisitor is a modern Nimrod, an ominous sign pointing to the return of the Mysteries.  He is the Master of the Universe, who being of one mind with Satan, has conceptually murdered God as revealed through Jesus Christ in order to take control of and reinterpret being, matter, time (he is the time/history-changer), energy, space and law.
