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 power-grabbing and lawlessness fueled by pathological lying, 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 the ignorant, gullible 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. 

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., the evolution as 'brute facts' cause,  'gay' cause, illegal alien cause,  redistribution of wealth cause, global change cause, the latest 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, write evil, sing evil and do 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 narcissistic '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 God and others).  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 James 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.

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 refrigerators 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)  

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. 

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.

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 evil 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.

The American Iron Curtain

To all Americans whose minds are not trapped within narrow psychic cages as is the sad, tragic case for most Americans, it's obvious that our Constitutional Republic is rapidly breaking apart on rocks of confusion, ignorance, apathy, unconstitutional 'special rights,' group rights, deviance and lawlessness.  Thus it has become commonplace for mind-conditioned Americans to call our Constitutional Republic a "democracy" (something the Founders deplored), support the murder of the unborn, cheer-lead for sodomy, hand their children over to be groomed by pedophiles in so-called sex education classes, and admit that they do not know what Western Biblical-based civilization is.  

The Iron Curtain 
 
"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

The metaphor "iron curtain" has been used to describe twentieth century totalitarian pagan states such as the Soviet Union.  Why iron curtain?  Answer: through terror, force, constant fear, treachery, brain-altering drugs, dehumanization via indoctrination with Darwinism, and psychological manipulation and trauma men's minds were narrowly confined within psychic cages. 
 
Whether identified as brainwashing, mind-control, or psycho-politics, thought-control is part of a program of psycho political terrorism utilized by Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, and the Communists after they seized control of Orthodox Christian  Russia and put into practice long-term plans to abolish on a vast cultural scale every vestige of belief in the Biblical God, creation ex nihilo, the traditional family, morality, private property, the West's traditional linear view of history, and other signs of "the capitalist petite Bourgeoisie." By way of various sadistically brutal forms of behavior modification, torture, psychotropic drug experimentation, re-education, and psychological terror tactics, Russians were terrorized into submission while Communists systematically stole their property, confiscated and perverted their children, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests, and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

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

"...there were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately." Under the terrorist-tactics of hate crime laws, speech codes, and other mind-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 it is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth. 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."

To determine if a society is fear-based, as America is quickly becoming, 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,"said Sharansky. "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 or disagreements about the official ideology but are afraid to express them publicly." In conclusion, Sharansky comments that the level "of dissidence is always a function of how tough the regime is." (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

There are two misconceptions held by most Americans.  The first is that communism ceased to be a threat when the Soviet Union imploded.  The second is that the New Left of the Sixties collapsed and disappeared as well. 

Because the New Left lacked cohesion it fell apart as a political movement.  However, its revolutionaries reorganized themselves into a multitude of single issue groups.  Thus we now have for example, radical feminists, black extremists, anti-war ‘peace' activists, animal rights groups, radical environmentalists, and ‘gay' rights groups.  All of these groups pursue their piece of the radical agenda through a complex network of organizations such as the Gay Straight Lesbian Educators Network (GSLEN), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), People for the American Way, United for Peace and Justice, Planned Parenthood, Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), Code Pink for Peace, open border advocates and liberal 'Christian' groups.   In back of these groups are deep-pocket funders:   http://discoverthenetworks.org/ 

Both communism and the New Left are alive and thriving here in America.  They favor code words: tolerance, social justice, economic justice, peace, reproductive rights, choice, sex education and safe sex, safe schools, inclusion, diversity, 'gay' rights, sustainability, global warming/cooling/change, and sensitivity. 
 
Though America's communist Left (Progressive liberals) publicly describe themselves as scientific, evolutionary, forward-thinking, and enlightened,  in reality said ex-red diaper baby David Horowitz, they are,

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

Measured by Sharanskys' town-square test we can see that America is quickly descending into a fear-based society. As her freedom-producing Christian-based worldview fades it is simultaneously replaced by an evolutionary cosmogony and spiritually pagan progressive totalitarianism.  The three types of population described by Sharansky also come into focus.  Progressive Liberals and their legion of 'liberalized' disciples are the true believers.   True believers are rabid zealots, brazen liars, and rebels against all authority. They freely destroy, transgress, scoff, demean, blaspheme, demonize, and otherwise psychologically and physically terrorize the large body of fearful double thinkers within and without the whole body of the Christian Church.  Around the outside edge are the dissidents:  truth-warriors who dare speak truth to lies and fight back against and expose forces of darkness.

More than fifty years ago, Conservative poet and journalist Anthony Harrigan foresaw the rise of this generations' destructive true believers. Observing that a 'process of decay' was being fostered by a modernist progressive orthodoxy fueled by immorality, Harrigan presciently noted that:

"Modernists are determined to force acceptance of pornography as medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion...Though the life of the country is basically decent, Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class, having led to destruction the humane elements in our civilization, is conducting us to ruin." For what cause? To raise up a revolutionary army of "liberal-bred" barbarians "motivated by a destructive impulse" and unchecked by "traditional values and restraints." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement of America, George H. Nash, p. 40)

Communism, Socialism and Progressive Fanaticism

 As Fyodor Dostoevsky astutely observed, Communist, Socialist and/or Progressive religious fanaticism is at bottom a reprisal of Nimrod's rebellion---the creature in rebellion against the Creator, His creation, Moral Law, immutable truths, and moral absolutes:
 
 Our war is against the Christian God and the world created by Him, declared Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto. In his poem, "The Pale Maiden" he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:

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

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

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

Most Americans no longer know what Western Biblical-based civilization is, and worse, actively fight against the worldview that nourishes them.   This has two overriding causes:  the deliberate and malicious "dumbing-down" of Americas' education establishment by progressive 'educators' (conditioners) issuing in the sad, tragic capture of the American mind. The mind can be freed, but the work required is hard, lengthy, and challenging.  The road to Truth and liberty begins with the Word of God, then tracks through the following books:
 
1. The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression 
 
2. Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, by Eugene (Fr. Seraphim) Rose           
 
3. Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz
 
4. Cry Havoc! The Great American Bring-down and how it happened, Ralph de Toledano
 
5. The Ruling Class: How they Corrupted America and what we can do about it, Angelo M. Codevilla
 
6. Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand
 
7. The Naked Communist, W. Cleon Skousen

Why Men Willfully Choose Ignorance, Absurdity, & Stupidity

In contending against the two most influential nature schools of thought, the Greek Epicureans (atheist pagans) and Stoics (atheist mystical pantheists), the Apostle Paul set the resurrection of Jesus Christ the Word Incarnate in the context of the sovereign decree of the God of Revelation and the inescapable fact of God's judgment on sin.  The reaction of the pagan sages was either to scoff and mock Paul or to brush him off with, "We will hear thee again of this matter." Acts 17:32  (The Word of Flux,  Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 48)
 
By challenging the pagans concept of the unknown god in relation to the gods they claimed to know and by asserting the sovereignty of the revealed God of Scripture (Acts 17:22-31) Pauls' challenge seriously threatened their corpus of nature science, evolutionary cosmogony, and philosophy.   This threat was taken seriously for Paul had in effect declared that if there exists an unknown god of the gods which pagans claim to know yet which is wholly unknown despite exercising influence for good or evil on that which they say and know, do they really know anything at all?  If this unknown god of gods exists then why not destroy all the altars to the gods you say you know since they are inventions in the minds of men, absurd idols, useless for salvation, the work of man’s hands:

"They have mouths, but they cannot speak; They have eyes, but they cannot see; They have ears, but they cannot hear; They have noses, but they cannot smell; They have hands, but they cannot feel; They have feet, but they cannot walk; They cannot make a sound with their throat. Those who make them will become like them..."  Psalm 115:4-8

In other words, men who worship the inert, unknowing things of creation (i.e., matter, energy, time) become ignorant, absurd and stupid, unable to account for either the origin of life or man's thought-life, will, and conscience.

By contrast St. Augustine (AD 354-430) easily affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent Triune God of life then it logically follows that each person is a trinity of being, — of soul and its citadel spirit (thought-life, will, conscience), and body:

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

In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person.

 The key to individual liberty in the temporal sphere is man's spiritual liberty contrasted against a genetically programmed animal-like orientation. Animals do not have spirits, which are linked to intelligence, imagination, sensitivity, self-consciousness, reflection and the capacity for truth and moral goodness.

A human being is uniquely free because his inner person can spiritually transcend matter to access the supernatural dimension as Paul affirms:

"Now the Lord is Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom" (2 Cor. 3:17)

Cornelius Van Til, the most profound writer in apologetics in the twentieth century points out that on the basis of naturalism it is impossible to know anything unless everything can be known, and since it is impossible to know everything then the whole of nature religion, science and philosophy is irrational because it cannot account for life, man's soul/spirit, truth and moral law.  Therefore nature worship is of ignorance,

"...of ignorance far deeper than (naturalists) are willing and able on (their assumptions) to own."   On the basis of naturalism, "there is no knowledge at all; there is nothing but ignorance." (ibid, p. 48)

In "The New Spirituality: Dismantling and Reconstructing Reality" Dr. Peter Jones cogently argues that since the Sixties we have entered a new, yet ancient world.  The intellectual pride of secular humanism (atheist paganism) and of its religious sister, "Christian" liberalism, has been exploded by the radical critique of postmodern deconstruction. The objectivity of sovereign human reason as a means to truth is now seen as pure fiction, so the world must be reconstructed on other bases.  Postmodernism has brought an end to secularism and  a triumphant form of ancient religious paganism,

 "...now claims to put the shattered Humpty Dumpty back together again-not by reason but by unreason, not by the conscious mind but by the subconscious psyche, not by logos but by mythos, not by faith in the Lord of heaven and earth but by faith in the Goddess, mistress of divinized Nature. Having exorcized the demon of secular humanism, modern culture now sees seven more very spiritual ones rushing in to take its place."  (Modern Reformation)

 As this "new" oneness ideology dominates the campus and the popular media, the rising generations are losing all sense of the antithesis (right or wrong, true or false, male or female), and are placing their faith in the pagan synthesis of "both/and" monism.  This is also true for young Christians if Mark Ostreicher, head of the largest evangelical training resource (Youth Specialties), has anything to do with it. He proposes to his youthful wards,

  "a path out of our bi-polar morass of left vs. right, liberal vs. conservative, mainline vs. evangelical...[away from] all the rhetoric, entrenchment and warfare-positioning of modern-day Christianity." Thus  the Church Militant becomes the Church Imitant, adopting "a new Christian worldview' that, devoid of theological biblical clarity, apes the pagan culture and concludes that "the body of Christ is queer, is man, is woman, is straight."  The "new Christian" employs spiritual techniques borrowed from pagan mysticism and imitates the self-justifying moralism of liberal social action."   

 Under the worldly wisdom of arrogant evolutionary Secular Humanism, instead of declaring of the God of Revelation, "Thy word is truth" (John 17:17), autonomous pagan naturalists declared of themselves, "our word is truth."  Pagan man's fiat word was truth and together with his nature science  (evolutionary cosmogony and evolutionary biology) the only source of allowable knowledge. Pagan man was the new Ultimate and his word and his science rather than the God of Revelation and His inerrant Word the benchmarks by which all things were judged. 

 Now, as Dr. Jones pointed out, it is no longer the worldly wisdom of pagan naturalists (Secular Humanists) but even worse, the mystical irrationalism of the subconscious psyche, the supposed realm of the god force within.

 The Force is the ancient universal life force worshipped by ancient and modern mystical pantheists and pagans under a variety of names such as Serpent Power, Zoe, Vril, kundalini, and Evolution.   It was the evolutionary scientist and Hindu-pantheist heretic Teilhard de Chardin who said that after millions of years of evolutionary progress, evolution was becoming aware of itself, meaning "the Force is awakening." 

 After more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in the schools, media, seminaries, academia and elsewhere mystical evolutionary pantheists are finally at liberty to declare that mystical evolution is a living "mind,"

"....enlarging its domain up the chain of species." The god evolution is the "universe...a mind that oversees, orchestrates, and gives order and structure to all things." (Algeny, Jeremy Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

Now that arcane scientism and mystical evolution reign supreme, occult pagan "god-men"  no longer feel like guests,

"..... in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever." (ibid)

Under the influence of a Transcended Master (fallen angel), according to Robert Muller, the father of World Core Curriculum, now that evolution is "mind" highly evolved men are free to spiritually evolve into higher and higher forms, to become one with the 'divine:'

"Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the 'divine,' its transcendence into ever higher forms of life. Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity. Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age..." (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)

Man's Willful Choice of Ignorance, Absurdity, Stupidity

The reason for Western man's willful choice of ignorance is not ignorance about the existence of the Triune God of life but of 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)

Man the sinner denies he is a sinner under the judgment of God.   He seeks escape from the moral law requirements of the Holy Triune God through establishing his own evolutionary cosmogony, religion, philosophy, and law to control the whole of reality by his fiat word exercised through the instrument of science:

"He therefore excludes the sovereignty of God and the authority of His Word, because man cannot allow such a God to exist in his world and to speak with authority to man." (ibid, p. 53) 

Though he may concede that such a God is possible, though only as First Cause of the Big Bang and life, as is the case with evolutionary theism and progressive creation, the basic reality for modern naturalistic man is his autonomous existence.

The world as the creation ex nihilo of the sovereign God of Revelation first gave way to the world as an evolving aspect of autonomous man's experience and now to an Eastern-oriented mystical pantheist illusion created by the will of the man-god:

"Man, at the same time, has stopped regarding himself as the vice-regent of God, created in His image, and (now sees) himself as a fragmented being ruled by ancient urges and lusts which control him and reduce his reason to a façade for rampant irrationalism.  Not surprisingly, T.S. Eliot saw modern man in a waste land of his own making." (ibid, p. 54) 

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6   "..... I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life..." Deuteronomy 30:19-20

Isaiah lays out the only two responses to the Lord: obedience or the false light of man's worldly wisdom.  To those who choose the latter Isaiah said:
 
 "Behold, all you who kindle a fire, who equip yourselves with burning torches! Walk by the light of your fire, and by the torches that you have kindled! This you have from my hand: you shall lie down in torment."  (Isaiah 50:11, ESV)

Like its' secular pagan twin, the New Spirituality is a corpus of ignorance and absurdity. It is a strange fire unable to account for the origin of life and utterly useless for salvation.  Like its' twin it emerged from the void  (hell) and back into the void it will go taking with it all unrepentant sinners who "shall lie down in torment."

Devilish Mind Games: Why the Loveless Ridicule Faith and Belief in the Triune God

The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed.” (Karl Marx, quoted in Marx and Satan, p. 59).

The living God of Revelation  “….. is the leftists’ chief rival,” said Peter Hitchens, brother of the now-deceased atheist Christopher Hitchens and author of The Rage against God.  

Hitchens adds:

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.” (p.134)

From Kant to Hegel, Marx, Darwin, Lenin, Freud, Nietzsche, Sartre, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Sanger, Herbert Marcuse, Dewey and America’s “death of God” theologians to name but a few, loveless God-haters have been waging war against the God of Revelation since the Enlightenment.

Having successfully ‘murdered’ Him they mean to see to it that He does not return to life.   This leads us to ask why the loveless want there to be no God of Revelation?

One answer comes from Thomas Nagel, professor of philosophy and law at New York University.  Nagel is no friend of Christianity.  In his book The Last Word, he confesses,

I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers.  It isn’t just that I don’t believe in God…It’s that I hope there is no God!  I don’t want there to be a God; I don’t want the universe to be like that.” (Ibid., p. 150)

Nagel inadvertently confesses to a Cosmic Authority problem and states his belief that this same Cosmic Authority problem is not only widespread, but has produced bad science among his fellow unbelievers within the scientific community,

My guess is that this cosmic authority problem is not a rare condition and that it is responsible for much of the scientism and reductionism of our time.  One of the tendencies it supports is the ludicrous overuse of evolutionary biology to explain everything about life, including everything about the human mind.”  (Ibid., p. 150)

In other words, scientism is the instrument through which loveless evolutionary biologists reduce man created in the spiritual image of the transcendent living God to a highly evolved ape…an evolved soulless product of evolution working on matter.   In the hands of the loveless,  man’s mind (spirit), the citadel of his soul, is nothing more than his material brain and his mind’s intellectual powers  the firing of synapses and the interaction of chemicals.

Evolutionary reductionism is a cruel swindle perpetrated against unsuspecting Americans by the loveless, who having rejected Jesus Christ’s offer of salvation want no one else to have it either.   All of it is a Big Lie from hell.

The truth is that each man is an embedded soul whose citadel is mind (will, conscience, reason) or spirit.  Scripture uses these two words, spirit and soul, interchangeably.

 Spirit is vertically open to receipt of “heavenly manna” from our Father in Heaven.   However, the spirit can also be open to influence and suggestion from the demonic realm, the intelligent powers behind the haters of God.

Though narrowly defined, man has ‘will,’ thus he is able to assent to and believe in truth or reject it and assent to cruel swindles instead, as evolutionary biologists do.  In the American Dictionary of the English Language of 1828, Noah Webster defines belief and faith,

1. Belief: “…an assent of the mind (spirit) to the truth of a declaration, proposition… distinct from personal knowledge; as the belief of the gospel.”

2. Faith: “The assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another; in theology, the assent of the mind…to the truth of what God has revealed…”

Note that assent of spirit always precedes what we “believe” and have “faith” in as true and real. This is true of all people, from Darwin, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, Popes, priests, pastors and bishops to “gays,” evolutionary biologists, Presidents, Prime Ministers, university professors, Luciferians, and atheist intellectuals like Thomas Nagel.

The atheist scientist for example, must “believe” in his findings, but more importantly, it is by “faith” that he “believes” that his mind (spirit) is capable not only of ‘knowing’ but of separating reality from fantasy.

All of this being the case, when during the Enlightenment Western apostates declared the death of God and elevated ‘nature’ to the supreme position they were immediately faced with irresolvable problems. Of these, three are of primary importance.

The first had to do with the ultimate source of life, and the second with man’s embedded soul/spirit, or “being.”   If the living Creator of life and man’s being is dead, then there is no source for life and being, making man a nonbeing, a walking dead body that nevertheless speaks, thus the question becomes, “What is man?”

Evolutionary naturalism provides no answers as it posits that life emerged from pre-existing or spontaneously generated (Big Bang) chemicals, stardust or other non-life-bearing matter, which begs the question, where did the pre-existing or spontaneously generated matter come from?  Furthermore, lifeless chemicals cannot produce life, and without life that can be ‘naturally selected’ then evolutionary process has nothing to work on.

The second unresolvable problem emerges from the first.  If the living God is dead and man is a nonbeing, then what can the evolved ape know and how can he account for what he knows?

The answer: he can neither account for his own life nor how he knows anything.

Philosophically, evolutionary naturalism is nihilistic, for monism (naturalism) holds that all that exists is one self-created, self-sufficient nonliving, unknowing substance comprised of matter animated by unseen energies (evolutionary dynamics).

Additionally, the elevation of lifeless matter and energy to “creator” is worship of nature while the insane notion that man is a nonbeing completely controlled by instincts (genetic and chemical forces of nature) and environment, which is another way of saying unseen forces, is the grossest of superstitions.   If love of truth and compassion for other souls animated the cold, shriveled hearts of the loveless, they would repent of their infernal project, but as love of truth and compassion for other souls does not they work around the clock to ensure that since they have chosen hell then all of us must end up there, thus their relentless intellectual assault.  Peter Hitchens comments,

The current intellectual assault on God in Europe and North America is in fact a specific attack on Christianity – the faith that stubbornly persists in the morality, laws, and government of the major Western countries.” (The Rage Against God , p. 134)

The essence of the “intellectual assault” is psychological bullying.  It takes the form of a two-pronged attack.  One prong consists of guilt-trips, temptations to sin, sugar-coated lies, Big Lies, double-speak, half-truths, evasions, insidiously revised history, propaganda of the lie, and teaching of evolution as factual science.    The other prong consists of a campaign of spiritual terror in the form of relentless browbeating, ridicule, slander, backstabbing, cruel innuendo, and persecution of all who prove resistant to the first prong process.

In terms of procedure, men must first be conditioned to believe without question that evolution is a scientific fact. They must blindly accept that they are evolved apes and that anyone who disbelieves this canon of superstitious nonsense is a stupid redneck bible-thumper.

Second, human apes must be conditioned to speak in terms such as “it seems to me,” “it appears to me,” “I feel” “and “suddenly I realized” rather than “I believe” “I think” “my faith is in,” and “it is my belief.”    Why? Because the former terms are abstract enough to imply “something caused” in the brain by chemical interactions while the latter specifically point to “assent of spirit.”   And man must never, ever be reminded that he is a soul/spirit within which assent of mind occurs. Therefore, words such as belief and faith are verboten…forbidden.

Hitchens tells us that the ultimate and only defense against infernal God-haters and their worship of human power, their moral relativism, and the notion that ends justify means is a return to  fundamental orthodox Biblical doctrines and teachings such as:

“…sin…conscience…eternal life, and…divine justice under an unalterable law…” (Ibid. p. 135)

In other words, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, signaling a return to sanity….of life, of soul/spirit and of the light of truth and righteousness.

Agenda 21: Occult Pantheist Utopia

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

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

 It matters little whether we are dealing with Communism, Socialism, abortion, the whole secular culture of perversity and death, the exclusion of the Triune God from public education, the crisis within the Christian church,  

"...or a whole host of other individual and social agendas---all are intimately related, and have as a powerful causative factor, belief in Darwinian Evolution."  (ibid)
 
 In his article, "Leftism a Radical Faith," Bruce Riggs notes that much of the political history of the extended twentieth century is that of massive extinctions of citizenries by their dictatorial governments:   
 
"Take the engineered mass starvations, torture chambers, firing squads, and gulags of Lenin and Stalin; Nazi gas chambers; Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge killing fields; the genocides of Mao's "Great Leap Forward"; and the tyrannical North Korean Sung dynasty, and one will find that over one hundred million people
have been slaughtered." (American Thinker, Jan. 1, 2014)      

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

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

This "totalitarian religiosity" is grounded in 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 Black Book's authors point to Communism's 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)

 Biocentrism: the Biological/Zoological Strain of Thinking

 According to veteran researcher Brooks Alexander, for more than forty years occult pantheist humanists have successfully assimilated mystical Eastern teachings and techniques for contacting spirits into our church and our culture. With remarkable speed and ease, Eastern occult ideas and spiritist techniques such as trance music, brain-altering drugs, meditation and yoga are being propagated to secularized Westerners and Americans, within and without the church, on a mass scale:

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

 In our occult pantheist society biocentrism or ecocentrism, terms synonymous with today's sustainable development and global warming/cooling/change agenda is the "biological and zoological strain of thinking" revamped and revised in accord with an Eastern-oriented evolutionary cosmogony that leap-frogs off of Darwinism.

As with Darwinism, biocentrism is antithetical to America's Christian worldview wherein man is a person of worth and dignity endowed by his Creator with certain unalienable rights because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons:
 
 "It is the soul alone that God made in his own image and the soul that he loves...For the sake of the soul...the Son of God came into the world..." (Incomplete Work on Matthew, Homily 25, Ancient Christian Devotional, Oden and Crosby, p. 153)

"The derivative concept of human personhood is a gift of the Christian faith to culture..." (Stephen P. Stratton, Chapter 14, p. 247, 'The Self,' Paul Vitz & Susan M. Felch, Editors)

 Building off of the view of man as embodied spirit, St. Augustine (AD 354-430) affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image bearers of the supernatural One God in three Persons, then it logically follows that each man is a person; a trinity of being comprised of soul/spirit (unseen), and body, brain (seen).
 
The citadel of the soul is spirit (heart). Spirit is immortal and self-aware. It can will and think and is responsible for what it wills, thinks, speaks, and acts on while in this world. Spirit is the unique property that distinguishes soul from the material body in which it is fully embedded.  In Christian thought, a person is a spirit (self) and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no 'self,' hence no person.

By contrast, biocentrism not only reduces man to a soulless/spiritless bio-machine (a conscious product of evolutionary forces acting on matter) but makes his life less valuable than dirt, earthworms, spotted owls, trash fish, alligators, and wolves:
 
"Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs."(Earth First! Journal editor, John Daily)
 
"To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world population problem." (Yale professor Lamont Cole)
 
Biocentrism and its warped system of occult pagan philosophy and pseudo-morality (political correctness) thrive right here in America. Communism (multiculturalism) and its diabolical mother, Secular Humanism, plus its twisted sisters, Postmodernism and occult Cosmic Humanism (Agenda 21) are now the predominant way of thinking in universities, judiciary, federal bureaucracy, in business, medicine, psychology, sociology, arts, public schools, the halls of Congress and many seminaries and inter-spirituality churches. At the heart of each of these systems beats the black heart of biocentrism.
 
Every day in our secular pagan controlled public schools, America's children are dehumanized through the teaching of Darwinian evolutionary propaganda. Though some are able to resist the attack on their humanity many more are not. Of those who cannot, some will go on to join the ranks of anti-Triune God, anti-America, anti-human revolutionaries, thereby becoming accomplices in the destruction of the nation that nourishes and protects them. Others will become practical atheists who, having no faith in God, will not fight for a nation founded on Christian precepts. From a cosmic humanist point of view, these are desired outcomes because:
 
"The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States." Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund
 
These evils are occurring because for nearly two centuries, first Secular Humanists and then occult Cosmic Humanists and revolutionary fellow travelers—having infiltrated and taken control of this nation's education establishment— incrementally replaced our nation's founding and uniquely Christian view of man as person, its' Biblical presuppositions, morality and philosophical worldview with an an evolutionary cosmogony and revolutionary catechism. The effect of this has been to not only undermine and delegitimize our nation's traditional presuppositions, Constitution, law, and institutions but to also reverse and upend the natural order, all of which results in the destruction of our humanity, freedoms and civilization.
 
"To destroy a people, you must first sever their roots."  Alexander Solzhenitsyn
 
Teaching this nation's future leaders, jurists, lawmakers, government workers, teachers, seminarians and pastors  the ideologies and philosophies of men and women such as Comte, Marx, Malthus, de Sade, Rousseau, Reich, Freud, Darwin, Nietzsche, Lenin, Stalin, Heidegger, Adorno, Lukacs, Gramsci, Sanger, Marcuse, Dewey, Kinsey, Derrida, Foucault, Carl Jung, and Teilhard de Chardin,for example, has unleashed a devastating wave of corruption, decadence, political correctness, chaos, pathologies, crime, narcissism, raw power-grabbing, and abandonment of allegiance towards these United States of America, all of which paves the way for the rise of a socialistic, sustainably-developed occult pantheist New World Order.
 
An alternative power structure necessary for deconstructing our Constitutional Republic has been created-- a "shadow government" of interlocking relationships and mutually reinforcing agendas consisting of, for example, the Left, the Democratic machine, environmental organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, Audubon Society, and The Wildlife Federation; big money foundations, such as Heinz, Mott, Blue Moon, Turner, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund; federal and state fish and wildlife departments, progressive theologians, and of course, the United Nations. In hot pursuit of their North American Union project,  power and money hungry Transnational Right atheists aid and abet the destructive process.
 
With the exception of the dissident voices of "anti-evolutionary science idiots" also known as "intolerant, racist, homophobic, mentally-ill, haters" such as faithful, orthodox Christians and Jews and other true Conservatives and decent Americans, the majority of Americans have passively acquiesced to their subhuman status. They also allow their children to be dehumanized, sexually perverted and even told that they share a common heritage with slugs, pigs, and dirt.
 
 Agenda 21: The Utopian Fantasy
 
Agenda 21 was adopted at the 1992 UN Conference in Rio de Janeiro. This 300-page document contains 40 chapters loaded with recommendations to micro-manage virtually every facet of human existence. Agenda 21 is not a treaty but a soft-law policy document that does not require Senate ratification. Some of the key players involved in its production and adoption are Al Gore, Ted Turner, and Maurice Strong. President George HW Bush signed it and President Clinton issued Executive Order No. 12852, which created the President's Council on Sustainable Development.
 
In his, "Sustainable Development: Transforming America" Henry Lamb provides a vignette of the emerging utopia. Speaking of America, he says:
 
"Half the land area of the entire country will be designated 'wilderness areas' where only wildlife managers and researchers will be allowed. These areas will be interconnected by ˜corridors of wilderness' to allow migration of wildlife. Wolves will be as plentiful in Virginia and Pennsylvania as they are now in Idaho and Montana. Panthers and alligators will roam freely from the Everglades to the Okefenokee and beyond. Transportation between sustainable communities (islands of human habitation) will be primarily by light rail systems highways that remain will be super transport corridors, such as the Trans-Texas Corridor now being designed." (Eco-logic Special Report, Dec. 1, 2005)

Property Acquisition Schemes

"The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If 'Thou shalt not covet,' and 'Thou shalt not steal,' were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society, before it can be civilized or made free."   (The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States; Charles Francis Adams, editor, Vol. VI, p.9)

The Wildlands Project, written by Dr. Reed Noss, who is under contract with The Nature Conservancy, is one such scheme. It has never been debated or voted on by elected officials. Nevertheless, it is being implemented through backdoor initiatives. Through its use thus far, 106.5 million acres have been stealthily acquired since 1964  by being designated as wilderness.

Henry Lamb reports that not only is eminent domain a key 'land-taking' strategy but:

"In the West, the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management are driving ranchers off the land by reducing grazing allotments (and) people who have recreational cabins on federal land, are discovering that their permits are not being renewed. The Fish and Wildlife Service is forcing people off their land through designations of  'wetlands,' and 'critical habitat." (ibid)

The Endangered Species Act makes use of spotted owls, plants, trash fish, alligators, grizzlies, wolves, wet  spots, and more to run dehumanized bio-machines off their land. Within the space of one week in 2006, three young Florida women were attacked by so-called 'managed' alligators. All three women died gruesome deaths.  'Managed' wolves are likewise useful for terrorizing landowners, especially when said owners have been criminally deprived of the basic right of self-defense:
 
"If coyotes or domestic dogs are guilty of harassing or killing livestock, there are no laws trumping the livestock owners’ right to protect their personal and private property against such losses. However, where the non-native wolves in Oregon are concerned, the state protects wolves over the rights of people."

"The use of the words “hysteria and denial of facts” against ranchers is a not-so-subtle attempt to belittle their legitimate concern over losses to wolves. This favored ploy attempts to shift the blame from livestock killing wolves to the very ones who suffer the losses, the ranchers." (The realities of ranching and wolves, admin, wolfcrossing.org, February 20, 2014)

Agenda 21: Saving Goddess Gaia

 "In the beginning, God created.." is the core presupposition on which Western civilization advanced for more than two millennia. Its highest expression is in our Declaration of Independence, where it serves as the ultimate source of our unalienable rights. This presupposition is now condemned by human-hating western policy makers as well as by the UN, all of whom prefer the biocentric view:

"Human happiness, and fecundity, are not as important as a wild and healthy planet...until such time as homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along." David Graber, research biologist with the National Park Service

"Christianity (has set) humans apart from nature (and) converted the world into a warehouse of commodities for human enjoyment." (Global Biodiversity Assessment, p. 787)

In 1970 Earth Day was inaugurated.  The New York Times enthusiastically hailed it as an idea whose time has come because earth (Gaia) needs to be saved,

 “…from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” (All for Gaia: Earth Day and TotalTransformation for a Post-Christian World, Carl Teichrib, Apr. 19, 2011, Forcing Change)
 
Goddess Earth needs to be saved from the cancerous growth of mankind:
 
“...unless the earth’s cancerous growth of population can be halted, all other problems---poverty, war, racial strife, uninhabitable cities, and the rest---are beyond solution.” (ibid, The Environmental Handbook, John Fischer, p. 139) 

Stabilizing the U.S. population should be declared a national policy.  Immediate steps should be taken to explore and legalize alternative lifestyles, sexual orientations, group and polyandrous marriage.  We must:
 
“Legalize voluntary abortion and sterilization and provide these services free…Remove all restrictions on the provision of birth control….and devices; provide these services free to all, including minors…Make sex education available to all appropriate levels, stressing birth control…and need to stabilize the population.” (ibid, Keith Murray, pp. 317-318)
 
Since the roots of our trouble are largely orthodox Christian theism and faithful Judaism, the remedy must be essentially religious.   Nothing short of total transformation, a counter-conversion away from the supernatural Holy Triune God, creation ex nihilo, Imago Dei, and orthodox Christianity and faithful Judaism to evolutionary cosmogonies, the pagan gender ideal (androgyny) and occult spirituality will suffice; therefore let the following evolutionary-based nature systems and religions be encouraged:
 
Gnostics, hip Marxists, Teilhard de Chardin Catholics, Druids, Taoists, Biologists, Witches, Yogins, Bhikkus,  Quakers, Sufis, Tibetans, Zens, Shamans, Bushmen, American Indians, Polynesians, Anarchists, Alchemists…the list is long.  All primitive cultures, all communal and ashram movements must be encouraged."   
 
 Since direct bloody force is not desirable or practical, a revolution of consciousness will not be won by guns and force but by seizing and transforming key Biblical and Christian symbols beginning with Genesis--the book of beginnings--and moving to eschatologies, and terminology so that,
 
 “life won’t seem worth living unless one’s on the transforming energy’s side.” (ibid, Four Changes, p. 331)
 
 For more than one-hundred years the Western civilized world has been moving from its' founding Christian-based worldview through Secular Humanism to Cosmic Humanism (Eastern-oriented occult pantheism).  Thus our increasingly apostate Church and secularized political, educational, economic and social structures are being dramatically transformed towards a holistic or communalistic (pantheist) New Age world-view wherein the human being is not created but an androgynous product of nature, an evolving aspect of the divine Quantum Void--- the ultimate One Substance (energy field).   
 
Occult New Age spirituality is totalitarian (communalistic) because it requires that all things become 'one with' the one substance.  It is a syncretistic, pantheist stew of Liberal and other strains of evolutionary Christianity, Theosophy, Spiritism, the Ancient Mysteries, Hermetic magic, Buddhism, Hinduism, Wicca, Goddess worship, and adulation of Lucifer

Globalist New Age 'elites' are modern Nimrods raising up another mystical tower.  They envision a spiritualized version of Marxist Communism that includes praise for Lucifer—the angel of evolution–and a pending selection of mankind in which  pagan and pantheist naturalists enter the New Age and undesirables face extinction.  However,  in order to make the quantum leap of evolution so as to enter the New Age aspirants will have to receive the Devil’s mark and be infernally sealed for all eternity.

I Am the Alpha and Omega (Rev. 22: 13-21); Outside the Gates is Eternal Torment (Rev. 21:8; 22: 15)

" I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book,  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!  The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen."  Revelation 22: 18-21 ESV

The bookends of Biblical theology are Genesis and Revelation, and it is in Rev. 22: 18-22 that our Savior Jesus Christ bears witness that no mere human may add to or take away from God's Words without incurring the plagues described in the book of Revelation. As the faith of the Christian Church and of the average Christian has had, and still has, its foundation as much in the literal and historic meaning of Genesis, the book of beginnings revealed 'mouth to mouth' by the Angel to Moses, as in that of the person and deity of Jesus Christ,  Moses also warned against adding to or subtracting from the Lord's commands (Deut. 4: 2; 12:37).

The evolutionary thinking so very popular with progressive theologians like Pope Francis and Reformed theologian Tim Keller and many others saps (subtracts from) the book of Genesis, and in the words of Rev. C. Leopold Clarke, a lecturer at the London Bible College over eighty years ago, priests who embrace evolution are apostates from the 'Truth as it is in Jesus.' (1 John2:2)  Evolution is the antithesis to the Revelation of God in the Deity of Jesus Christ, thus it is the greatest and most active agent of moral and spiritual disintegration:

"It is a battering-ram of unbelief – a sapping and mining operation that intends to blow Religion sky-high. The one thing which the human mind demands in its conception of God, is that, being Almighty, He works sovereignly and miraculously – and this is the thing with which Evolution dispenses....Already a tremendous effect, on a wide scale has been produced by the impact of this teaching – an effect which can only be likened to the...collapse of foundations..." (Evolution and the Break-Up of Christendom, Philip Bell, creation.com, Nov. 27, 2012)

The primary tactic employed by priests eager to accommodate themselves and the Church to modern science and evolutionary thinking is predictable. It is the argument that evolution is entirely compatible with the Bible when we see Genesis, especially the first three chapters, in a non-literal, non-historical context. This is the argument embraced and advanced by Pope Francis, Tim Keller, et al.

This is not a heresy unique to modern times. The early Church Fathers dealt with this damnable heresy as well, counting it among the heretical tendencies of the Origenists. Fourth-century Fathers such as John Chrysostom, Basil the Great and Ephraim the Syrian, all of whom wrote commentaries on Genesis, specifically warned against treating Genesis as an unhistorical myth or allegory. John Chrysostom strongly warned against paying heed to these heretics,

"...let us stop up our hearing against them, and let us believe the Divine Scripture, and following what is written in it, let us strive to preserve in our souls sound dogmas." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 31)

As St. Cyril of Alexandria wrote, higher theological, spiritual meaning is founded upon humble, simple faith in the literal and historic meaning of Genesis and one cannot apprehend rightly the Scriptures without believing in the historical reality of the events and people they describe. (ibid, Seraphim Rose, p. 40, emphasis added)

"And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is opposed."   (Luke 2: 34-35)

Jesus Christ will be divisive. On one hand His preached Word will be the touchstone of humble men's characters, thereby revealing the secret good affections in their minds.  On the other, He will be a Sign that is opposed by the haughty and arrogant, thereby revealing the secret corruptions of their thoughts and enmity to Christ.  Thus the haughty and arrogant will oppose His doctrine, rail against  His people and deny and blaspheme His truth and holiness.   In this way the secret thoughts in the hearts of all men will be revealed and be judged concerning Christ.  Thus Jesus Christ is appointed for the fall of the haughty and arrogant and the salvation of the humble.

Therefore, blessed is the man who does not place his trust in haughty, arrogant theologians who stray after lies such as evolutionary science (Psalm 40: 4-5).  Stand firm, persevere, do not throw away your confidence:

"it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised."  (Hebrews 10:35-36)

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last," (Rev. 22:13 ESV) the beginning (Genesis, John 1:1) and the end (Revelation).

 Outside the gates of eternal life in God's City is eternal torment reserved for the haughty, arrogant and all who love Satanic falsehood, sensuality, and murder. (Rev. 21: 8; 22:15 ESV) 

In short, blessed is the humble man who trusts in the Lord because "Father knows best."

Political Correctness: What it is & How it Works to Destroy America from within

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

Political correctness demands that in order for one not to be thought of as racist, homophobic, bigoted, fascist, hateful, mentally ill and anti-science, then one must not only be nonjudgmental but must also embrace evolutionary thinking and man-made morality: diversity, choice, sensitivity, sexual orientation, and tolerance.

The foundation and key strategy of political correctness (the consensus process) is the knowledge that all individuals have an inherent fear of being alienated from the group. During sensitivity-training and diversity-training sessions, skillful change-agents (facilitators) psychologically manipulate this fear to herd selected victims toward a preplanned conclusion that induces them to compromise both conscience and position. This is the consensus process in a nut shell, and when we hear communist-inspired Leftists, progressives and liberals screaming for 'consensus,' they're really demanding that they be allowed to 'facilitate' the compromise of conscience which leads to the abandonment of the Triune God, Scripture, and the Genesis account of creation in favor of atheism and evolutionary cosmologies, and Christian-based Western ideals, principles, institutions (i.e., one man, one woman marriage in favor of "gay" and anything goes groupings), binary (i.e., the two created sexes in favor of sodomy and androgyny; truth and good against lie and evil in favor of moral relativism), holidays (i.e., Christmas in favor of Sparkle Day) and related traditions.

As evolutionary thinking is an abomination that desolates the Word of God so too is political correctness an abomination that desolates our minds by imprisoning our thought life within narrow psychic cages.

Blessed is the Man who Listens not to Proud Men who Stray After Lies

"Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Rev. 19:10) 

"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son" (1 John 2:22).

"And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit." (Rev. 9:1)

While most commentators identify the falling star as only Lucifer, in his Concise Commentary Matthew Henry provides a second, human identity.  Human falling stars are tepid, indecisive, weak or apostate clergy who,

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

John identifies antichrists, in this case clergy who serve the devil rather than Christ, sequentially. First, like Bultmann, Teilhard de Chardin, Robert Funk, Paul Tillich, and John Shelby Spong, for example, they specifically deny the living, personal Holy Trinity by negation of the literal and historical elements of the Genesis account in favor of Gnostic pagan, immanent or Eastern pantheist evolutionary conceptions. Though the One God in three Persons upholds the souls of men and maintains life and creation, His substance is not within nature (space-time dimension) as pagan and pantheist evolutionary and progressive creation speculators subtly imply but outside of it. Sinful men live within nature and are burdened by time and mortality; God is not.

Second, the specific denial of the Father who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo in six days logically negates Jesus the Christ, the Word who was in the beginning (John 1), was with God, and is God from the creation of all things (1 John 1). In a pre-incarnate theophany, Jesus is the Angel who spoke "mouth to mouth" to Moses (Num. 12:6-9; John 9:20) and at sundry times and in many ways "spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, last of all..." (Hebrews 1:1) Jesus the Christ is the incarnate Son of God, the life and light of men, the perfect fulfillment of law and prophecy (Rev. 19:10) who by His shed blood on the Cross died for the remission of all sins and bestowed the privilege of adoption on all who put their faith in Him. Therefore, to deny the Holy Father through denial of creation ex nihilo is to logically deny the deity of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, hence,

"...every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist . . . and even now already is it in the world" (1 John 4:3).

According to Peter (2 Peter 2:1), human falling stars will work among the faithful, teaching damnable heresies that deny the Lord, cause the fall of men into unbelief, and bring destruction upon themselves:

"The natural parents of modern unbelief turn out to have been the guardians of belief." Many thinking people came at last "to realize that it was religion, not science or social change that gave birth to unbelief. Having made God more and more like man – intellectually, morally, emotionally – the shapers of religion made it feasible to abandon God, to believe simply in man." (James Turner of the University of Michigan in "American Babylon," Richard John Neuhaus, p. 95)

Falling Stars and Damnable Heresy

Almost thirty years ago, two well-respected social science scholars, William Sims Bainbridge and Rodney Stark found themselves alarmed by what they saw as a rising tide of irrationalism, superstition and occultism – channeling cults, spirit familiars, necromancers, Wiccans, Satanists, Luciferians, goddess worshippers, 'gay' shamans, Hermetic magicians and other occult madness at every level of society, particularly within the most influential – Hollywood, academia and the highest corridors of political power.

Like many scientists, they were equally concerned by Christian opposition to naturalistic evolution. As is common in the science community, they assumed the cause of these social pathologies was somehow due to fundamentalism, their term for faithful, orthodox Christian theism as opposed to progressive and/or liberalized Christianity. Yet to their credit, the research they undertook to discover the cause was conducted both scientifically and with great integrity. What they found was so startling it caused them to re-evaluate their attitude toward authentic Christian theism. Their findings led them to say:

"It would be a mistake to conclude that fundamentalists oppose all science (when in reality they but oppose) a single theory (that) directly contradicts the bible. But it would be an equally great mistake to conclude that religious liberals and the irreligious possess superior minds of great rationality, to see them as modern personalities who have no need of the supernatural or any propensity to believe unscientific superstitions. On the contrary...they are much more likely to accept the new superstitions. It is the fundamentalists who appear most virtuous according to scientific standards when we examine the cults and pseudo-sciences proliferating in our society today." ("Superstitions, Old and New," The Skeptical Inquirer, Vol. IV, No. 4; summer, 1980)

In more detail they observed that authentic 'born again' (spiritually regenerated) Christians are far less likely to accept cults and pseudoscientific beliefs while the irreligious and liberalized Christians (i.e., evolutionary and progressive creation theists, progressive Catholics, Protestant emergent, NAR, word faith, prosperity gospel) are open to unscientific notions. In fact, these two groups are most disposed toward occultism.

As Bainbridge and Stark admitted, evolutionary science directly contradicts the Bible, beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo. This means that evolutionary science is the antithesis of the Genesis account. For this reason, discerning Christians refuse to submit to the evolutionary thinking that has swept Western and American society. Nor do they accept the evolutionary theism and progressive creation brought into the whole body of the Church by weak, tepid, indecisive, or apostate clergy.

Over eighty years ago, Rev. C. Leopold Clarke wrote that priests who embrace evolution (evolutionary theists) are apostates from the 'Truth as it is in Jesus.' (1 John2:2) Rev. Clarke, a lecturer at a London Bible college, discerned that evolution is the antithesis to the Revelation of God in the Deity of Jesus Christ, thus it is the greatest and most active agent of moral and spiritual disintegration:

"It is a battering-ram of unbelief – a sapping and mining operation that intends to blow Religion sky-high. The one thing which the human mind demands in its conception of God, is that, being Almighty, He works sovereignly and miraculously – and this is the thing with which Evolution dispenses....Already a tremendous effect, on a wide scale has been produced by the impact of this teaching – an effect which can only be likened to the...collapse of foundations..." (Evolution and the Break-Up of Christendom, Philip Bell, creation.com, Nov. 27, 2012)

The faith of the Christian Church and of the average Christian has had, and still has, its foundation as much in the literal and historic meaning of Genesis, the book of beginnings revealed 'mouth to mouth' by the Angel to Moses, as in that of the person and deity of Jesus Christ. But how horrible a travesty of the sacred office of the Christian Ministry to see church leaders more eager to be abreast of the times, than earnestly contending for the Faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3). It is high time, said Rev. Clarke, that the Church,

".... separated herself from the humiliating entanglement attending her desire to be thought up to date...What, after all, have custodians of Divine Revelation to do making terms with speculative Biology, which has....no message of comfort or help to the soul?" (ibid)

The primary tactic employed by priests eager to accommodate themselves and the Christian Church to modern science and evolutionary thinking is predictable. It is the argument that evolution is entirely compatible with the Bible when we see Genesis, especially the first three chapters, in a non-literal, non-historical context. This is the argument embraced and advanced by Pope Francis, Hugh Ross and mega-church pastor Timothy J. Keller.

With a position paper Keller published with the theistic evolutionary organization Bio Logos he joined the ranks of falling stars (Catholic and Protestant priests) stretching back to the Renaissance. Their slippery-slide into apostasy began when they gave into the temptation to embrace a non-literal, non-historical view of Genesis. (A response to Timothy Keller's 'Creation, Evolution and Christian Laypeople," Lita Cosner, Sept. 9, 2010, creation.com)

This is not a heresy unique to modern times. The early Church Fathers dealt with this damnable heresy as well, counting it among the heretical tendencies of the Origenists. Fourth-century Fathers such as John Chrysostom, Basil the Great and Ephraim the Syrian, all of whom wrote commentaries on Genesis, specifically warned against treating Genesis as an unhistorical myth or allegory. John Chrysostom strongly warned against paying heed to these heretics,

"...let us stop up our hearing against them, and let us believe the Divine Scripture, and following what is written in it, let us strive to preserve in our souls sound dogmas." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 31)

As St. Cyril of Alexandria wrote, higher theological, spiritual meaning and by extension, spiritual regeneration is founded upon humble, simple faith in the literal and historic meaning of Genesis and one cannot apprehend rightly the Scriptures without believing in the historical reality of the events and people they describe. (ibid, Seraphim Rose, p. 40)

In the integral worldview teachings of the Fathers, neither the literal nor historical meaning of the Revelations of the pre-incarnate Jesus, the Angel who spoke to Moses, can be regarded as expendable. There are at least four critically important reasons why. First, to reduce the Revelation of God to allegory and myth is to contradict and usurp the authority of God, ultimately deny the deity of Jesus Christ; twist, distort, add to and subtract from the entire Bible and finally, to imperil the salvation of believers.

Scenarios commonly proposed by modern Origenists posit a cleverly disguised pantheist/immanent nature deity subject to the space-time dimension and forces of evolution. But as noted previously, it is sinful man who carries the burden of time, not God. This is a crucial point, for when evolutionary theists add millions and billions of zeros (time) to God they have transferred their own limitations onto Him. They have 'limited' God and made Him over in their own image. This is not only idolatrous but satanic.

Additionally, evolution inverts creation. In place of God's good creation from which men fell there is an evolutionary escalator starting at the bottom with matter, then progressing upward toward life, then up and through the life and death of millions of evolved creatures that preceded humans by millions of years until at long last an apish humanoid emerges into which a deity that is always in a state of becoming (evolving) places a soul.

Evolution amputates the entire historical precedent from the Gospel and makes Jesus Christ unnecessary as the atheist Frank Zindler enthusiastically points out:

"The most devastating thing that biology did to Christianity was the discovery of biological evolution. Now that we know that Adam and Eve never were real people the central myth of Christianity is destroyed. If there never was an Adam and Eve, there never was an original sin. If there never was an original sin there is no need of salvation. If there is no need of salvation there is no need of a saviour. And I submit that puts Jesus...into the ranks of the unemployed. I think evolution absolutely is the death knell of Christianity." ("Atheism vs. Christianity," 1996, Lita Cosner, creation.com, June 13, 2013)

Blessed is the man who does not place his trust in proud men who stray after lies such as evolutionary science (Psalm 40: 4-5).  Do not throw away your confidence:

"it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised."  (Hebrews 10:35-36)

Modern Liberalism: Theology of Demons and Psychology of the Hell-Bound

For over eighty-five years, America has been incrementally conquered by the same madness-and-murder inducing demon of evil, hatred, paranoia and violence that earlier took over Russia, China, Germany, and Italy. This demon is embodied in American and Western Leftists, progressives and transnational "elites," all of which are deeply infected by scientific Communism and the delusion that the true enemy of America is always on the Right.  In "Kinder Garden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks," ex-liberal Evan Sayet notes that  the madness-inducing ideology of the modern liberal leads him to, 

"... invariably and inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right, the lesser over the better, the ugly over the beautiful, the profane over the profound, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success." 

Having rejected  the Triune God, their own souls and the religious heritage of our civilization, they embrace instead pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary naturalism of which Communism and Socialism are logical expressions.  A new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the existing Christian-based culture must be completely destroyed and the human soul re-engineered.

 So what is Communism?  Using the former Soviet Union as an example, Frank Meyers describes it as,

"The state form taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world."    Communism or scientific materialism is "the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  It is scientism (evolutionary biology and evolutionary cosmologies) of which, "Communism is the culminating hubris of the Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation.  It is scientism gone political." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

After more than forty years of struggle to resist a Communist takeover of America by Leftists (also progressives and modern liberals), in his newly released book, "The Black Book of the American Left," David Horowitz reports that nearly every battle has been lost:

"The Black Book of the American Left is first of all a narrative map of the battles fought over the last 40 years and----it must be said---lost, almost every one.  The Black Book contains a record as complete as any likely to be written of the struggle to resist a Communist-inspired Left that was not defeated in the Cold War but took advantage of the Soviet defeat to enter the American mainstream and conquer it, until today its members occupy the White House."   David Horowitz 

In a review of Volume II, Barbara Kay describes it as a survey of the wreckage blotting the landscape of “progressivism,” a barrier island to Communism’s landmass:

Here we find the unbroken bridge linking Communism to the received wisdom of the vast majority of academics in the West, who download them into vulnerable students en masse. The Marxist vision that sustained Stalin’s supporters in the 1940s and 1950s is alive and well in the post-colonialist and identity obsessions of postmodern theorists. Utopians then, utopians still, Horowitz finds their vision of social justice is still attended by the same suppression of “incorrect” thought and speech, the same self-righteousness, the same illiberalism in dealing with critics and apostates that were – are – the hallmarks of Communism." 
 
As Leftist ideology bears a deep hatred for the Holy Trinity, His creation and the human norm it boils with an unquenchable desire for its annihilation through erasure of Western history and ongoing attempts by way of inhumane psychological bullying to erase the knowledge of the human soul made in the spiritual image of the One God in Three Persons.  It is here that Leftist preference for evil over good can be seen in its effort to make the knowledge that we are the image-bearers of God unknowable through indoctrination with Darwinism, psychological manipulation and terroristic bullying that ridicules and demeans the six day Genesis account in favor of "scientifically enlightened" God-less Darwinism. 

Increasingly, we are ridiculed and shamed if we publicly declare that Jesus Christ God Incarnate, heaven, eternally unchanging truth, moral law and the Biblically-based unalienable (God-given) rights  and enduring principles undergirding our Constitutional Republic are superior to socialism, Sharia, Wicca, paganism, Satanism, sodomy, lies, death and all other evils because good (the former) is biased against evil (the latter).  That's why we   cannot defend  and proclaim the inerrant Word of God, the six day Genesis account, His Moral Law, immutable truth, our souls and our right to life without being  ridiculed as anti-evolutionary science and anti-choice (abortion, euthanasia) morons, bigots, racists, homophobes and xenophobes because orthodox Christian faith is the antithesis of evil: 

"Why do you lay these troubles on an already troubled mind? Can you not see, your uncle is wearied by your...malcontent, your warmongering?"   (Grima Wormtongue-- consummate liberal, pathological liar and bully who hides behind his master Saruman---to Eomer, the valiant, virtuous defender of the good, true, righteous and life-affirming)                        

In the shriveled souls, hard-hearts and darkly disordered minds of Americas' legions of progressive Grimas and Saruman types,  there wouldn't be any evil if not for the good, thus  Grimas situated within every thought-and-moral shaping institution at every level of American society from the White House to the Supreme Court, Congress, academia, the music industry, media, seminaries, pulpits and Hollywood do the work of their father the devil in order to "right" this "wrong."  

As one example of this work,  the liberal 'legal watchdog' group, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, provided the legal muscle this year to get the Satanic Temple,
 
"....prime real estate for its display alongside several others’ at the state capitol’s rotunda." (FL state capital OKs Satanic Christmas display, Michael F. Haverluck, OneNewsNow, December 15, 2014 
 
NewsBusters reporter Tianna DeMartino exposes another example of Grimas' evil-doing.  In "Reminder to Christians: Seth McFarlane hates you. Merry Christmas!" DeMartino reports that McFarlane, 
 
 "... the liberal atheist behind “Family Guy,” seems to be feeling especially spiteful this Christmas, going above and beyond the usual sacrilege....The fall finale which aired Dec. 7 on Fox, was titled “The 2000 Year-Old Virgin.” In the episode Peter and his wife Lois find Jesus at the mall; still in Quahog because Jesus and His father God don’t get along. Jesus tells Peter he “can’t deal with [His] family during the holiday.” Besides, even if Jesus did get along with God they couldn’t spend the holiday together anyway because “[His] Dad always spends Christmas at his time share … with His girlfriend.” (God appears in a scene on vacation with his scantily clad girlfriend mocking an adult handicapped child whose parents sarcastically thank him for the “test” God gave them.)"  (Family Guy’ Christmas: ‘The 2000 Year-Old Virgin,’ News Busters, December 8, 2014) 

While Christians in the Middle East are daily brutalized, raped, tortured and crucified and their children cut in half and beheaded, what are the main concerns of Americas' mainstream media Grimas?  The plight of poor, misunderstood, unfairly treated welfare careerists, sodomites, cop-killers, illegals and lawless elements rampaging through our streets, burning and looting as they go.

 Look around and ask yourselves, "what is most loved and most hated" in liberal controlled and dominated America?  

On the hate list: the Holy Trinity, the inerrant Word of God with particular emphasis on the six day Genesis account, Original Sin, immutable truth and moral law, heaven, hell, judgment. 

On the liberal love list: God-less Darwinism and continuous change issuing in meaninglessness and purposelessness, a license for the following: pathological lying, treachery, criminal behavior, Satanists, murderous jihadis, ISIS, sodomy, lesbianism, transgender, pornography, illegals, Baphomet, the Satanic Temple, cop-killers, God-hating mass-murderers like Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin, and unending death for our Constitutional Republic and nonhumans and plague species:

  1."Saying homo sapiens are a 'plague species,' the London Zoo opened a new exhibit featuring--eight humans.  We have set up this exhibit to highlight the spread of man as a plague species and to communicate the importance of man's place in the planet's ecosystem."  (Human Beings: Plague Species; WorldNet Daily, 2005)

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

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

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

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

6."Nonpersons or potential persons cannot be wronged…because death does not deprive them of something they value."  (John Harris, Sir David Alliance professor of bioethics, University of Manchester, England)   
 
On the Need to Eliminate Human Weeds and Other Evil Schemes  

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

Note: The Club of Rome bills itself as a global think tank.  It is comprised of Grimas and Saruman types: liberal scientists, economists, businessmen, international high civil servants, university presidents, members of parliament, heads of state, and former heads of state from all five continents.  They describe themselves as people who believe that the future of humankind is not determined once and for all.  This is code for evolutionary ascent from inert chemicals to primordial life to ape-like hominids and then human life to trans-human (something more highly evolved than mere human) and finally---godhood.  

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

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

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

Note:  Although they've not managed to spread the Black Death, they have managed to ignite a similar worldwide conflagration of STDS and AIDS.  Keep in mind that it's progressive liberals and their international cohorts who preach and pave the way for the gospel of ''salvation and redemption by sex."  What they don't want you to know is that it's really the environment (Gaia) that they are trying to save from the human plague. The idea here is that through unrestrained libido, sexually-enslaved human weeds will become diseased, sterile, psychologically damaged, and die earlier rather than later.  

Ask yourselves why there has been no logical response to this plague.  Why for instance, has there been a pronounced furtherance of unrestrained fornication, sodomy, lesbianism, and sado-masochism rather than a call for abstinence?   And in the face of mounting death totals (468,000 dead from AIDs since 1981), why do they continue to teach your children to engage in the very behaviors which they know to be the cause of psychological disorder and death?  The CDC (2002) reports that 16,000 deaths from AIDs occur annually. Another 40,000 new cases of infection occur within the same time frame.  There are 1 million cases of HIV, 31-50 million of herpes simplex, 24 million of HPV, and 1 million cases of chronic hepatitis B.  

Now connect the dots between the Aids and STDs devastations and the 610 million plus surgically and chemically induced abortions between 1965-1996 (American Life League).  It  appears that under the guiding hand of Grimas and Saruman types that America is on the fast-track of demographic suicide.  

According to Grima and Saruman, how many nonhumans should be allowed to exist?    

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

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

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

The Evil Religion of Environmentalism   

In speaking before the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Sept. 15, 2003, Michael Crichton told his audience,

"...certain human social structures…can't be eliminated from society.  One of those…is religion.  Today it is said we live in a secular society in which…the best people, the most enlightened…do not believe in any religion.  But…you cannot eliminate religion from the psyche of mankind…suppress it in one form; it…re-emerges in another form.  Today, one of the most powerful religions in the Western World is environmentalism."  

Self-deifying liberalism, pleasure-seeking hedonism, and environmentalism (pagan worship of creation) in conjunction with Darwinism (the scientism that validates this lethal brew) and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies are the core elements comprising the most intrinsically evil religion ever known to mankind.  In its' guise as Marxist Communism this evil religious worldview is condemned by Stephane Courtois (The Black Book of Communism) as a criminal ideology that attracts narcissists and diabolical psychopaths such as Lenin, Stalin and Mao.  And unless we can arrest it, as Winston Churchill declared, it will "shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible."   
 

Liberalism is a theology of demons, hence the psychology of the hell-bound, and though most people who vote for liberals don't embrace this psychology, they can be persuaded  and seduced by lying, evil-minded Grimas to embrace it by disguising its' ill-will and evil intentions as enlightened science, reason, forward thinking, change, compassion, fairness, diversity, inclusion, equality, multiculturalism, and global cooling, warming or change (whatever works). 

It is said that courage is the first of the virtues because without it we will cower before and submit to the wrath, psychological bullying and lies of liberals.   According to the OT prophet Isaiah, those who fear the wrath of liberals--- who are destined to die and go into hell---have forgotten the Lord.  Liberal opposition to the Holy Trinity will not and cannot last, nor is liberal wrath anything when compared to Divine wrath:

"...So have no fear of them...do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.  Rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell...."    For all of the faithful and orthodox who confess and repent of their sin and acknowledge their Savior Jesus Christ God Incarnate before men He "will also acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven."   Matthew 10: 26-32

Margaret Sangers' Malignant Gospel of Redemption and Salvation

Although no shots have been fired as yet, a fierce battle is nonetheless being waged for the hearts and souls of Americans. The combatants, locked in a life-or-death struggle, are two antithetical worldviews. On one side is America's traditional Christian-based worldview, selected by our Founders as the moral rock on which to anchor our Republic. First among its principles is the sanctity of life firmly grounded on  the unique concept of man as the spiritual image-bearer of the Holy Trinity.   This historically unique concept gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," an absolute necessity if individual liberty and equality before the law are to exist.  All together this concept is,

"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, Vishal Mangalwadi, pp. 12-13)

The second combatant is a malevolent alien to our shores. It is based in arrested emotional development, malignant envy, wrath, and dark fantasies of impossible equality made possible by the dehumanization of man:

"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)

David Horowitz said of this combatant that it bears a,

 "...deep hatred for the human norm and an unquenchable desire for its annihilation…the inhumanity of the radical ambition was what made the Communist epoch so consummate in its evil…an agenda whose aim is to erase the human past and remake the human soul." (The Politics of Bad Faith; www.discoverthenetwork.org).

Though this malevolent worldview wraps itself in an egocentric banner of reason and evolutionary science, it is in actuality a system of extreme, hard-edged narcissism, moral imbecility, sophistry and inhumane philosophy, which functionally speaking, serves as a religion. This religion, were it given a name, would be called Evolutionary Humanism or Religious Naturalism.

As all religiously held belief systems do, it informs us of who our creator is (spontaneously generated or eternally existing matter) and how we were created (evolution: the universal life force). It tells us who we are: soulless, slightly smarter human apes, lacking both free will and morally informed conscience. It relates to us the story of what went wrong with us and the world (an incompetent Creator, a Gnostic Demiurge). In the humanist version, we are told that the human ape species was originally naturally good (Gospel of Rousseau), and the source of evil by which we became oppressed and unconscious of our inner divinity (the fall) lies within the Genesis account of creation and our traditional Biblical-based social institutions (Gospel of Rousseau). This is simply a euphemistic way of saying that the Holy Trinity, His Creation, Original Sin, laws, and social institutions are sources of evil.

Finally, as religions are wont to do, it tells us through a plan of redemption and salvation what must be done to redeem the fallen world and human apes. In the humanist version, all power and authority must be collectivized and placed into the hands of god-like Gnostic pagan elites, the "chosen ones" who possess infinite intellectual powers and will actualize the plan of salvation. This will lead to the creation of an earthly paradise (Kingdom of Man) populated with the New Man (bio-machine), the scientifically engineered Frankenstein monster of the elites.

There are a variety of evolutionary humanisms or "liberation ideologies," and all of them are variations on a theme:  history ascends in a series of evolutionary stages, and as each stage ends, its' social institutions and mores must be shed…as a reptile sheds its old skin…lest the old ways impede evolutionary progress towards perfection. This myth was dubbed the "Escalator Myth" by British philosopher Mary Midgley.

Also dubbed the "myth of progress," or "change," the Escalator Myth,

"...is a secularization of the Christian teaching of divine providence."  (How Now Shall We Live? Charles Colson and Nancy Pearcey, p. 232)

All liberation ideologies are grounded in religious naturalism, evolutionary biology (common descent from primordial blob) and evolutionary cosmologies.  Whereas faithful, orthodox Christianity teaches that the Trinity is the author and finisher of history-- which is moving towards the Kingdom of God--- that the Bible is God's plan of redemption and salvation, and that fallen man can only be saved through the grace of Jesus Christ, in contrast, the Escalator Myth teaches that we are evolving towards a utopian paradise on earth, a Kingdom of Man which will be created through the godlike ingenuity of scientifically enlightened elites.

"Moderns are dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good."  T.S. Eliot

The humanist plan of redemption and salvation is contained within various 'gospels' written by 'elite' trans-humans who are revered as 'enlightened' voices of science (the new Bible) and divine reason. Among these worshipped notables are Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Francis Galton, Darwin, Herbert Spencer, Karl Marx, Engels, Hegel, Teilhard de Chardin, Alfred Kinsey, and Margaret Sanger.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, preached a salvation doctrine that advocated both sexual libertinism and abortion and damned Original Sin, "He created them male and female" (Gen. 5:2),  Christian morality and all God ordained norms and institutions. She believed that if society would jettison the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo as well as the moral constraints and prohibitions which prevent the release of pent-up inner energies most of societies larger evils would disappear. To a female whose morals were those of a tramp, any sort of sex, even that of adults rutting on children, is simply an act of releasing inner energies.

Complete freedom to fornicate, and now today, complete freedom to engage in sodomy and lesbianism coupled with complete freedom to prevent conception or to get rid of newly conceived human life was, according to the Gospel of Sanger, the shining path by which human nature could be transformed into a New Man. Sanger enthusiastically proclaimed that it is within the power of the 'chosen ones' to scientifically re-engineer the souls of human beings in order to create a New Man and a perfect civilization that would  "transmute and sublimate the everyday world into a realm of beauty and joy."

By Sangers' account, revolution consists of a struggle to liberate our bodies and minds from the shackles of the Holy Trinity and Biblical morality.  She adamantly opposed "the moralists" who preached abstinence, self-denial, and self-control and described Christian morality as "the cruel morality of self-denial, and sin."   Christian morality and sin must be thrown down, crushed, and replaced with sexual liberation.  According to Sanger, only through release of sexual energies can a person find "inner peace and security and beauty."  Moreover, release of sexual energy is the only method for overcoming social ills. (ibid, p. 238)

The redemptive power of unrestrained libido, by Sanger's reckoning, would make man godlike. Through the "release and channeling of the primordial inner energies of man" men and women can evolve into geniuses. In this twisted version of the Garden of Eden story, it's not the fruit of the tree that makes us godlike; it's the release of sexual energies. (ibid)

Another preacher of Sanger's Gospel is Robert Rimmer, author of "The Harrad Experiment" (1966). His book fueled the sexual liberation movement and was for an entire generation of college attendees recommended reading in courses dealing with marriage and family. Like Sanger, Rimmer preached that promiscuity was the means for taking "one more step up the evolutionary ladder…for evolving into a new form of man or woman." Sex, he wrote, is "actually an act of worship." (ibid, p. 240)

Yet another contemporary of Sangers' is Mary Calderone, architect of sex education in all public schools and former director of the Sex Information and Education Council of the U.S. (SIECUS). In a 1968 article Calderone openly admitted the real agenda of sex educators when she wrote, "What kind (of person) do we want to produce to take the place of human nature as we know it today?" (ibid, p. 241)

In the Gospel of Sanger, complete sexual freedom was but one method for creating the New Man, elevating the 'chosen' to the status of genius, and creating paradise on earth. The other necessary step was in either preventing new life from being conceived or by getting rid of it once it had been conceived. This means sterilization, eugenics, and abortion, otherwise known as family planning.

The latter step serves two primary purposes in the evolutionist's scheme of things. The first revolves around preventing the birth of what Sanger termed "unfit" and "dysgenic" breeding stock. Among these were Italians, Jews, blacks, epileptics, the disabled, the diseased, mental defectives, and Catholics. Catholics were evil because they were staunch sanctity of life supporters. In the view of todays' sexual liberationists, all defenders of the Genesis account together with all sanctity of life supporters are considered to be evil fanatics, hateful bigots, homophobes, and mentally unbalanced anti-science superstitious morons.

The second purpose is really an act—it's the ultimate act of rebellion against the Holy Trinity, His inerrant Revealed Word and all that's true, virtuous, natural and decent.

"Unless we know ourselves to be full of pride, ambition, concupiscence, weakness, wretchedness and unrighteousness, we are truly blind." (Pensees, Pascal, p. 229)

Omnipotence, in the case of wretched, pride-inflated, truly blind, scientifically enlightened "elites" comes from having power over the Holy Trinity and His Revealed Word so as to give their own words the active force of the Triune Gods creative words. In this way, empowered god-men can unweave and refashion creation, human beings, Scripture, the family and society as needed.   They can decide who lives and who must die, what we may have or not have, as well as what we are allowed to know and not know. This is a sociopaths power trip.  

Sanger's malice-fueled megalomania was on display when she proclaimed,

"I believe…woman was enslaved by the world machine, by sex conventions, by motherhood and... child-rearing…by middle class morality, by customs, laws and superstitions."

 Only in the disordered mind of a malignant narcissist would it make sense to rebel against the Holy Trinity, his or her own inner person (soul/spirit), and society's norms by declaring a right to "be lazy," "to be an unmarried mother," "to destroy," "to create," "to love," and "to freely release inner energies." Her oxymoronic illogic can be restated as: "Libido dominandi is the path to glory."

In observance of the malevolence-and-murder fueled obsession of evolutionary "elites" with destroying the hated Christian-based order, re-engineering the soul of man and creating a paradise on earth David Horowitz wrote,

 "The century behind us is littered with the corpses of millions who died on the cross of such new worlds…the quest for a 'new man' and 'new woman' consumed the lives of entire nations." (The Politics of Bad Faith)

The systematic murder of millions of men, women, and children in the former Soviet Union was primarily facilitated by two things.  First by 'scientifically' animalizing  all people who were objects of hatred, resentment and envy.   This was achieved by application of the Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking that ultimately enabled Marxists to justify their monstrous crimes against humanity.   Second, by maliciously whipping up and enflaming the evil that resides in the hearts of the 'oppressed.'    In America, the 'oppressed' are mainly 'gays,' lesbians, non-conforming gender-free beings, Satanists, witches, pagans, illegals, certain people of 'color,' Muslims, criminals and pregnant women in need of liberation by way of abortion.

"....murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother's blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed." (Tertullian, Apologeticus IX.- 6, 8)

Sanger believed that abortion was a necessary and practical method for regulating the breeding stock of the next generation.   The evil initiated by Sanger has swollen into the murderous abomination known as the pro-choice movement.  (The Deadliest Monster, J.F. Baldwin, p. 191)

 According to American Life League, the total number of abortions in the U.S. from 1973 to 2011 is 54.5 million plus:

"These statistics include only surgical and medical abortions. Because many contraceptive measures are abortifacients (drugs that induce or cause abortions), it is important not to overlook the number of children killed by chemical abortions. Since 1965, an average of 11 million women have used abortifacient methods of birth control in the United States at any given time. Using formulas based on the way the birth control pill works, pharmacy experts project that about 14 million chemical abortions occur in the United States each year, providing a projected total of well in excess of 610 million chemical abortions between 1965 and 2009."  (Abortion, all.org)

Evil Ideas Unleash Evil into the World

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

Supernatural orthodox Christianity was the unifying thesis of Hallowell's interpretation of modern scientific/evolutionary  political philosophy:
 
"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insights we have into the nature of man and of the crisis in which we find ourselves.  That crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of a transcendent or spiritual reality and of his progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent conception of reality....Only through a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ, can modern man and his society find redemption from the tyranny of evil."  (ibid, p. 53)
 
The Christianity which Hallowell, Hyde and other early conservatives defended was not the liberal or modernist evolutionary Christianity of the Social Gospel and Gnostic immanent Protestantism. Nor would it be the evolutionary theism, progressive creationism or any of the myriad of twisted theology posing as Christianity today.  What early Conservatives proposed and defended was supernatural Christianity grounded in what for many early conservatives was the deepest, most terrifying lesson of WW II: the lesson of evil, of original sin:
 
"We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin," asserted Hallowell.  To Richard Weaver, no concept gave deeper insight into the "enigma that is man" than original sin.  Evil was not just a "bad dream" an "accident of history," or "the creation of a few antisocial men."   Evil is a "subtle, pervasive, protean force," and original sin was a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing."   (ibid, 53)
 
Eliseo Vivas concurred.   Inside every man and woman he said, lay "brutality" and a "natural tendency" to define value in his own interests (moral relativism). 

In "The Problem of Pain," C.S. Lewis observed,

"Man is now a horror to God and to himself…not because God made him so but because he has made himself so by the abuse of his free will…Evil comes from the abuse of free will."

In denying their own sin nature, bloody-handed evolutionary humanists have become the embodiment of the very thing they live in denial of. And this is why they have become horrors to both God and man.

"Intellectual Morons: How Ideology Makes Smart People Fall for Stupid Ideas" by Daniel J. Flynn  

Leading Sheep to Perdition through the Paganization of Scripture

In his hard-hitting piece, "Away with You Spineless Christians" Bill Muehlenberg  observes that interfaith fools do not have a clue that they are allowing pagan gods access to their own Christian houses of worship, in this case, the National Cathedral in Washington D.C which previously celebrated a "gay" marriage in proud demonstration of tolerance, diversity and open-mindedness.     In the latest episode of madness they thought it would be a neat idea to have Muslims come in and hold an Islamic prayer service there. The folks in charge there are simply duped dhimmis, and haven’t a clue what this signifies:

"Do they not know anything about Islam? Do they know nothing about the Shahada, one of the pillars of Islam? It is a prayer that professes there is only one God (Allah) and that Muhammad is his messenger. This is a direct, unilateral assault on the very heart and soul of the Christian faith: that Jesus Christ is God’s son, and the only way to the Father." (Away With You Spineless Christian Men, Muehlenberg, barbwire.com, Nov. 17, 2014)

The celebration of science, evolution, sodomy, lesbianism, reimagining conferences and pagan gods by Christian theologians who really aren't Christians demonstrates that the fall (apostasy) of the Christian Church that began at least two-hundred years ago continues toward fullness into our own time.

"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. " (Genesis 6:5–8)            

In his superb treatise, "Against the Heathens" early Church Father Athanasius outlines the incremental fall of antediluvians that provides continuity with and application to our own time.  He notes that the fall of antediluvians into paganism and idolatry began with pride and haughtiness. A haughty spirit led them to make light of  the higher things of the Trinity, and deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began to seek in preference things in the lower or natural dimension. Thus they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and other appetites, and acquisition of status and things to the living, personal Trinity and His higher knowledge.

The truth as to evil said Athanasius,

"....is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul" which, "materialized by forgetting God" and engrossed in lower things, "makes them into gods," and thereby "descends into a hopeless depth of delusion and superstition," whereby "they ceased to think that anything existed beyond what is seen, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Having descended into delusion and superstition they imagined they had neither souls nor free will and further that all that exists is the natural dimension — a divine One Substance, watery abyss, void, primordial matter, animated natural powers, forces, and deterministic laws, all of which they celebrated and attributed miraculous powers to. So for example, with the Egyptians' self-created Sun-God Ra, the divine abyss or One Substance out of which he evolved is Nu — primordial matter:

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

This is naturalism, which is the belief that all that exists is the natural dimension, thus evolutionary naturalist Dr. Scott Todd wrote in the science journal 'Nature:'

"Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such a hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic." (Naturalism in the Light of Reality, Robert Gurney, creation.com, June 14, 2012)

The atheistic (pagan) formula for evolution boils down to:  

Evolution (unseen life-making energy) working on matter over billions of years of time caused life by chance (unseen power) to emerge from chemicals after which natural selection  (unseen choice-making power) was set in motion.

In the theistic evolutionary view (paganism dressed up in Christian language and motifs) brought into seminaries around the turn of the century, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo is rejected in order that God can be integrated into naturalistic philosophy, not as omnipotent Lord of all things, but as an impotent enabler of evolution.

 The deluded theistic evolutionist generally believes in an old Earth, billions of years old plus wholly natural processes being responsible for life once initial matter was created (Big Bang/Cosmic Egg) by an impotent God controlled and shaped by evolutionary theologians who reinterpret the Word of God wherever it contradicts their naturalistic evolutionary worldview.   According to evolutionary theologians, as the Word of God contains no relevant ideas applicable to origins science then science and evolutionary speculations have priority over the Bible.   In this way, arrogant, defiant evolutionary theologians (haughty spirits) are paganizing the Christian Church as Michael Dowd, who describes himself as an evolutionary "Christian" confesses:

 "I’m not creating a new religion I’m trying to secularize or naturalize the existing ones.I’m not trying to get religous people to accept evolution so much as I’m trying to get them to give up supernaturalism and wholeheartedly and passionately embrace big history."  ("Evolutionary Christianity," whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com, 2011) 

 No, having descended into superstition, paganism and idolatry the deluded Dowd and like-minded theologians are not creating a new religion but rather paganizing the Way, the Truth, and the Life thereby leading unwitting sheep to perdition.

Americas' Ruling Class: We have said in our hearts," we are gods"

"Exalting mankind to the status of deity...dates from the farthest reaches of antiquity, but its development into an ideology embracing the masses is a characteristic trait of modernity." (Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture, Herbert Schlossberg, pp. 40-41)

Noted historian Arnold Toynbee concurs. After studying civilizations across the whole span of history, Toynbee concluded that the paramount religion of mankind is self-worship...of man as god. Tal Brooke also agrees, noting that historically there has always been an exoteric polytheism-pantheism for the general masses and a high level esoteric "advaitic" monism for the higher initiate. For initiates then:

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

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

Isaiah describes the rebellion and fall of Lucifer, who exalted himself above the Trinity,  as occurring prior to the fall of Adam and Eve, who were  later seduced by the fallen Lucifer (Satan) with the promise of becoming like God:

"For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation....I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the most High." (Isaiah 14:13-14)

Satan does not have a body and heart of flesh as we do.  So where is the sin of Satan as he fell?  "Thou hast said in thine heart."   Satan's rebellion, like that of Adam and Eve is internal, meaning within the unseen realm of spirit-- thought-life, conscience and will.   The point here is that it was from the inside, the thought life, that something external--sin/evil--was made, first by Satan, then by Adam and Eve.  From the inside outward sin/evil was made then just as continues to be made into our own time.

With respect to the Holy Trinity of life and creation, Scripture tells us He is spirit.  He is not corporeal, but He is personal and infinite.  He thinks, He acts, He feels in His love.  In the area of creation the Triune God thought, then spoke, and a real external world was.   The Trinity thought, the Trinity spoke and said, "Let us make man in our image" and man was. (Gen. 1:26) 

Reality (life, conscious life, matter, energy, time, laws)  was in the thought of the Trinity before being brought forth by the immediate power of His spoken Word, His creative fiat as the inner (unseen) and external (seen) world. (True Spirituality, Francis Schaeffer.

The point is that the creative power of the thought of the Trinity preceded all else and the ridiculous idea that He created a Cosmic Egg, then exploded it and utilized evolution over billions of years is yet another example of the inside outward rebellion of sinful man in his arrogant exaltation of self above the Trinity. 

 All of this is parallel to what the Bible, the inspired, written Word of God says about man made in the image of the Trinity.  For  the Trinity, as for man and Angelic beings, both righteous and fallen, the internal thought-life precedes and causes the external.   Putting this together, we find that the Trinity thinks, then speaks and brings forth the external world out of nothing that previously existed.  However, as Angels and men are finite created beings, they cannot create from nothing, and when in their rebellious disobedience Satan, Adam, and Eve 'thought' their external words and actions brought forth evil, and brought it forth as a true first cause:

 "And each one of us, too, created in the image of God, is a true first cause."   (True Spirituality, Francis Schaeffer, pp. 103-104) 

Modern Satanic Revolt: We have said in our hearts, "we are gods"

"Thou hast said in thine heart" our war is against the Trinity and the world created by Him, declared Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto. In his poem, "The Pale Maiden"  Marx admits that from the power of his thought proceeds rebellion against God and from his will--- eternal Hell for his immortal soul:

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


The progressive Satanic revolt that fueled Marxist Communism fuels its' Western secular elite counterpart.  Underlying both Marxist Communism and secular elitism is a foundation of evolutionary neo-paganism and mystical pantheism (naturalism/nihilism), thus it is not the personal Trinity who has created the world.  No, it is the will and power of the thought of each evolved man-god who creates his, her or its' (i.e., 'gay' or nonconforming gender queer being) own world and meaning in every living moment out of his/her/its own conscious thought.  In other words, the willful denial of the Holy Triune Creator and His authority allows God-hating man-gods to assume the mantle of self-divinization and the unlimited power of thought and will that goes along with it, to destroy and remake human beings and the existing world within the thought-life of each man-god.  This means that reality is not external but rather within the delusional, paranoid, envy-bitten minds of man-gods. 

This delusional way of thinking is captured by Orwell in his book, “Nineteen Eighty-Four” in which negation of the physical world is an integral part of the religious, social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his despotic Party.   At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that,

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

When the Thought Police agent O’Brien re-educates (psychologically tortures) Winston for “wrong thought” he states,

We control matter because we control the mind.  Reality is inside the skull.  You will learn by degrees, Winston.  There is nothing that we could not do.  Invisibility, levitation---anything.  I could float off this floor like a soap bubble if I wish to….You must get rid of these nineteenth-century ideas about the laws of Nature.  We make the laws of Nature.”

“But how can you control matter?” Winston asked. “You don’t even control the climate or the law of gravity. And there are disease, pain, death-”

O’Brien silenced him by a movement of the hand, saying you will learn-by degrees Winston. The Inner Party, now the Western secular elite Ruling Class, create reality because whatever  Elite man-gods think and speak is.   

This, tragically, is the mass delusion of all modern ruling class "elitists" and utopian ideologues who think, speak and voila! Science is the only knowledge worth knowing, evolution is a fact, Global Change is too and man is no longer strictly man but god, goddess, and gender nonconforming being too. 

 In the end, however,delusional ideology inevitably leads all of them to Hell---the place of fire and brimstone they are unable to un-think.

Americas "New" Man: Soulless Product of Abomination of Desolation

In his article, “Episcopal Bishop V. Gene Robinson: Let the Demon of Chaos Reign in the Churches,”  Paul Melanson wrote in response to Robinson's open embrace of sodomy and chaos:

It was St. Peter Damian, a Doctor of the Church, who explained that the vice of sodomy “surpasses the enormity of all others,” because, “Without fail, it brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust: It leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind . . . It opens up Hell and closes the gates of Paradise . . . It is this vice that violates temperance, slays modesty, strangles chastity, and slaughters virginity . . . It defiles all things, sullies all things, pollutes all things . . . ” ("The Book of Gomorrah" cited by Melanson, La Salette Journey,  July 6, 2012)

With respect to his work of “gay” activism, Mr. Robinson said,

This is hard work, but we can do it because it is worthy work and it is Godly work” and further asserted that, “We will live to see the day that the church of Jesus Christ, in whatever form it is, will repent from what it has done to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people the way it has repented for slavery.”  (ibid)

Just as evolutionary theologians destroy certainty in the Revealed Word by trashing the Genesis account on behalf of science and evolution in the name of progress, Robinson describes the progressive turmoil and divisiveness ripping apart the Episcopal and Presbyterian churches on behalf of sodomy and lesbianism as “holy chaos.”   Holy chaos is confusion that represents “a step forward” from the certainty that most Christians felt when it came to what God and churches thought of homosexuals.” (ibid)

The "step forward" toward affirmation of sodomy, lesbianism and transgender is made possible by loss of certainty in the inerrancy of Scripture and what it means to be created in the spiritual image of the Triune God.

As with the West's secular elite class, Robinson’s hatred of Jesus Christ is a very real existential atheism burning with hatred of a seemingly unjust or unmerciful God. This is a pathological spiritual state described by the prophet of nihilism, Friedrich Nietzsche. Calling himself the antichrist, Nietzsche foresaw and foretold that the death of the Christian God in the hearts of men who hate Him would usher in a “new” immorality that in its turn would usher in the Beast:

The time has come to oppose morality with immorality, to call what priests call good, evil and what they call evil, good. The time has come for the transvaluation of all values.” (Thus Spake Zarathustra, p. 144).

Nietzsche boasted that nihilist adherents of revolution and immorality,

“...would come into power without the truth….The magic that fights for us is the magic of extremism.” (Karl Jaspers quoting Nietzsche in his Nietzsche and Christianity).

Extremism–brazen egoistic arrogance—is one aspect of their magic. The other is the Lie—big lies, small lies, subtle lies, lies of omission, etc— which is all that is left when the Triune Gods eternally unchanging truth no longer exists. Nihilism, or objective meaninglessness, is the logical assumption if the living, personal transcendent Holy God does not exist.

Nihilism is spiritual, moral, and intellectual suicide because if the living God of Life Who created all men in His spiritual image does not exist then it logically follows that there is no source for life, soul/spirit (inner person) or for human dignity, worth, liberty, and property. Without God the Father unalienable (God-given) rights are meaningless.

If man is not God’s spiritual image-bearer, as nihilist simplifiers claim in the name of their corrupt science, then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ walked this earth:

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

Seraphim Rose, author of “Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age“ observes that nihilists scorn the Revealed Word, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo in particular, together with any thought or action concerned with sin, heaven and hell. Holding that only the natural dimension---the evolving universe of energy and matter---exists, nihilism reduces everything to its simplest foundations such as chemicals and the firing of neurons. More profoundly,

“….Nihilist ‘simplification’ may be seen in the universal prestige today accorded the lowest order of knowledge, the scientific, as well as the simplistic ideas of men like Marx, Freud, and Darwin, which underlie virtually the whole of contemporary thought and life.”

For the last two hundred years, Enlightenment evolutionary humanists — nihilistic rationalists, materialists, positivists, liberal pantheist "Christians" and their modern naturalist counterparts such as occult New Agers and spiritual transhumanists — have been moving the West and America closer and closer to Buddha’s denial of the soul.

After seizing control of Russia, nihilist simplifiers utilized mind-conditioning techniques such as propaganda of the lie, psychological manipulation, electro-shock treatments, mind-altering drugs, re-education and other brutal measures with emphasis on Darwinism to effect a soulless, androgynous New Man. They tried to liquidate,

“… all expressions of individual identity in favor of an impersonal collective, communal consciousness.” (The Book that Made Your World, p. 74)

With B.F. Skinners’ nihilist behaviorism there is neither God nor soul. Human beings are chemicals turned into psychochemical machines determined by environment, chemistry, chance, and cultural conditioning.

Cognitive scientist Daniel Dennett, one of the Four Horsemen of Atheism, is really a nihilist simplifier who claims there really is no you, that soul, spirit and will are illusions caused by chemical interactions in the brain while his partner in nihilism, naturalist Tom Wolfe proclaims,

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

In no Western thinker has the nihilist doctrine been more clearly expressed than in Nietzsche’s ecstatic utterance, “God is dead.” God is dead in the hearts of modern Westerners:

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

In his essay, “The New Man,” Dr. Pedro Blas Gonzalez, Professor of Philosophy at Barry University, Miami, Florida, describes America’s New Man as the product of nihilist simplifiers. Nihilists have successfully destroyed the inner person (soul/spirit), dignity, personal autonomy and capacity for self-knowledge of vast numbers of Americans. Today this new man,

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

The New Man is a mutation, said Seraphim Rose. He is a rootless, soulless entity,

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

Dr. Gonzalez concurs,

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

In other words, the “simplistic ideas” of nihilist simplifiers have 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.

Thus the deluded new man absolutely believes that he is the stuff of the future. This rootless, increasingly androgynous entity actually believes that he is evolving toward something higher.   In fact, transhumanists believe that they have already transcended, or evolved beyond mere humanity. But all of this is a great lie, a massive deception, said Rose:

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

The New Man is the product of an abomination of desolation consisting of naturalism, evolutionary cosmologies, science as the only acceptable knowledge, and nihilist philosophies solidified in mass delusion which have been working their way through our culture, embedding themselves, often unconsciously, within our psyches where they eventually effect a counter-conversion of souls. This means that in falling away from the living Triune God comes the reversal of conversion in which the soul ceases to live from the spirit and begins to live with the life of the body. The disordered passions thereby revived absorb the life of the person who spiritually dies resulting in the natural man of 2 Tim. 3:3. (St. Tikhon, Works II, as quoted in Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, p. 120)

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

The Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word become Flesh, Jesus Christ the Physician came to heal the spiritually sick.  But whoever rejects the Physician and his own soul, whether through indifference (willful ignorance), foolishness, or outright denial, rejects His prescription, hence destroys him or herself.
