America's Growing Anarchy of Selfishness & its Consequences

In "Supreme Court Destroys Trial by Jury," Mark Horne writes that trial by jury means that, whether you are really guilty or not, if the jury acquits you, then you are acquitted. Once the jury has spoken, no other authority can punish you for that accusation. But after a recent Supreme Court decision it no longer means that.  Now a judge can throw out the jury's ruling of "not guilty" and penalize a defendant on the basis of the prosecutor's allegations.  The Supreme Court has made a mockery of justice.  It has "just practiced jury nullification."  (politicaloutcast.com, 2014/10)

If he were still alive, Rousas John Rushdoony (1916 – 2001), a Reformed theologian, philosopher, and historian who is widely credited as an inspiration for the modern Christian homeschool movement, would not be surprised that our Supreme Court has destroyed trial by jury.  Nor would he be shocked that sodomy has been legalized and moral relativism has supplanted the immutable Truths and Moral Law of God since he knew that the majority of the citizens of the United States do not worship the Triune God of creation but rather worship on the altars of humanistic gods created in the imaginations of men:  

"To control the god of any system is to control the men within it. The long battle between church and state has this fact at its roots.  Orthodox Christianity gives us a God who is beyond the control of church and state alike.  Hence the God of Scripture has been resented by civil governments, and attempts to subvert orthodox Christianity and its churches have been legion.  The church too often has been restless under so sovereign a God; churchmen too prefer a god who can be put into man’s pocket.”    Rousas Rushdoony 
 
Proud, rebellious, selfish man has conceptually 'murdered' the Triune God and usurped His throne, thus with no Truth and Moral Law beyond his reach he (or she) effectively makes himself into a god by becoming the measure of all things. 

 It is envy--- vastly inflated pride, jealousy, covetousness, greed and hatred--- that is the principle of negation and rebellion in the fallen souls of all men who have "killed" God and usurped His throne.

 Envy has played a part in human dynamics ever since the envy-bitten Cain murdered his brother Abel.  Where envy resides there is neither love for God nor for brother:

 "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbour as thyself." Luke 10:27

The end of the commandment is charity (selfless love) from a pure heart, a good conscience and unfeigned faith. (1 Thess. 1:5) He that loves his neighbor fulfills the law for he does not lie, commit adultery or murder, nor does he steal, bear false witness (i.e., slander, gossip), and covet/envy.

Charity works no evil. It is not perversely puffed up with pride. It is not ambitious, does not serve 'self. '  Selfless love thinks no evil, does not covet and neither rejoices in another man's misery nor derides truth and virtue as the envious do:

"When men are full of envy, they disparage everything, whether it be good or bad." (Publius Cornelius Tacitus)

"Nothing sharpens sight like envy." (Thomas Fuller, British clergyman and writer, 1608-1661)

"Pride is seldom delicate, it will please itself with very mean advantages; and envy feels not its own happiness, but when it may be compared with the misery of others." (Samuel Johnson, British poet, critic, writer, 1709-1784)

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." (Winston Churchill, British orator, author and Prime Minister during World War II, 1874-1965)

"When I say that Marxism is based on envy, I mean that the glorious revolution of the proletariat...was really a promise to put a final end to all the conditions that make for envy." (Joseph Epstein, author and former editor of The American Scholar, from Truths about Socialism, Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of envy is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor), since a proud man or elite group of men make idols out of themselves, thereby assuming they possess honor and rights. This is why pride leads to contempt for truth, law, wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, institutions and other people in combination with any or all of the following: lying, treachery, gluttony lust, hate, cheating, promiscuity, sadism, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, adultery, theft and the dehumanization of other people resulting in psychological and physical slavery, population control schemes, abortion, brutality, terror, murder and even mass-murder or genocide.

Pride together with selfishness and envy is idolatry.  Idolatry demonstrates preference for one's self instead of God and neighbor (and unwanted babies), and just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, envy and murder are its' final results, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.

As the anarchy of selfishness, hatred, contempt and envy disguised as legal and personal opinion, evolutionary science and special rights gains a more complete leverage over our society what follows in its wake are absurdity, brutality, hatred, murder, chaos and tyranny.

America's Brave New Society: an Unreality of Non-self and Madness

For fifteen hundred years, Christendom and then later Protestant America had followed St. Augustine (AD 354-430) in affirming that all men are three part (mind, body, soul) image-bearers of the transcendent Triune God (Gen. 1:27). This historically unique view of man is the foundation of our Constitutional rights and was affirmed by the brilliant French economist, statesman, and author Frederic Bastiat.  Man as God's spiritual image-bearer is the precious gift from God, which includes the physical, intellectual, and moral life:

"He has provided us with a collection of marvelous faculties. And He has put us in the midst of a variety of natural resources. By application of our faculties to these natural resources we convert them into products, and use them. Life, faculties, production – in other words, individuality, liberty, property – this is man (and) these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it. Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place." (Bastiat, "How Evil Works," David Kupelian, p. 8)

Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar, writes that this unique concept of man as God's spiritual image-bearer (Imago Dei) gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," and this 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, pp. 12-13)

The Demise of Imago Dei

For more than eighty years uninformed, unsuspecting Americans have allowed evolutionary atheists and their theological counterparts to define the personal Triune God out of existence and usurp the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo with evolution, thus the uniquely Biblical definition of man on which our Constitutional rights are grounded has been lost.    According to evolutionary cosmology man is not created but rather a dehumanized aspect of the evolving universe of matter and energy.  In this way of thinking, man is either a bio-machine or a human animal evolved from hominids. 

 If man is not God's spiritual image-bearer then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ God Incarnate walked this earth:

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

Jesus Christ to Buddha,

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

Life and conscious being (self) are only with the living God of Revelation (John 1), the creator and upholder of the life and being (soul/spirit) of men. But if He does not exist, it logically follows that there is no ultimate source for life, conscious being (self), meaning and purpose; or for the sanctity of human life, worth, dignity, individual liberty and personal property. Without the God of Revelation unalienable (God given) human rights are as meaningless as America's founding documents and the two sexes He created.

In this light we can see that evolutionary thinking is not of the Holy Triune God but is rather the worldly wisdom of arrogant, defiant, foolish men. It is earthly, depraved, stupid, unspiritual and demonic.  It is hell-derived wisdom that leaves in its wake chaos, brokenness, madness, division, strife, death, and destruction. 

So welcome to America's Brave New Society, the unreality of non-self and madness where everything---no matter how stupid and depraved---is now possible.

The Devil and the Genesis Problem

One of the devil's greatest achievements in our age of biological science and evolutionary thinking has been to convince natural science-and-evolution worshipping Westerners to believe that all that exists is the evolving universe of matter and energy (naturalism).   The only problem, and it’s a really big one because unresolvable, is that though evolutionists have tried several different anti-creation models of the universe none can account for life, conscious life, and information.  Additionally, recent research has shot them full of holes, leaving evolutionists with the hated Big Bang model.

In a 2012 editorial, "The Genesis Problem," New Scientist editors admit that physicists have been fighting a rearguard action against the Big Bang theory for decades, largely because they believe it has theological overtones. After all, if you have an instant of creation, don't you need a creator?

If modern physicists understood the pagan and occult implications of the Big Bang model their fears would be put to rest. The seedbed of Big Bang speculations are ancient global cosmic events described by Eastern Advaitans and Greek nature sages as Cosmic Eggs. One Hindu belief was that Brahman (the Void or energy field) spontaneously generated itself as something like a seed or singularity about 4.3 billion years ago and then evolved under its’ own power by which it expanded and formed all that exists: 

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

In this way of thinking, the entire universe, spirit, life, the gods, human beings, and everything else, came about by a process of emanation (or unfolding, emergence or evolution) from an energy field called Brahman. Just as waves form across the surface of the ocean, so the Void forms upon itself successive waves (emanations) of particles (particle theory) that in turn emanate further entities and so on, with all of these entities interacting within an extraordinary network or great chain of being consisting of downward-descending self-contained planes of existence, a top-down hierarchy of astral plane realities (multiverse theory) arranged vertically. Each higher plane of existence emanates the one below it through a mechanical process, thus each plane stands in the position of god-force to the one below. Therefore creation is not creation ex nihilo, as the Genesis account teaches, but mechanical emanation out of the Void.

In India, the Void and the doctrine of evolution/reincarnation/karma was thoroughly established from ancient times. It was expounded first in the Upanishads (c. 1000 BC - AD 4), the philosophical-mystical texts held to be the essence of the Vedas.  Moreover, the "science" and "psychology" behind the idea that mind and information evolve from chemicals can be found in the yogic science of Ayurveda and Hatha Yoga which outlines in both modern and ancient texts the glandular and neurological basis of Enlightenment. (ibid, Griffith)

Variations on the theme of the evolving universe of matter and energy were held by ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans in the West and the Upanishads and other mystical pantheists in the East.  This ancient occult pagan belief is naturalism, which is of the worldview of monism.  Monism is held in common by pantheism, materialism and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems   

Naturalism means on one hand that the supernatural Tri-personal Holy God who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo,  man as His spiritual image-bearer, the Fall, hell, and the devil and his evil minions either do not exist or are myths from man’s pre-scientific past.   On the other hand, highly evolved deep space beings---themselves the emergent product of the universal life force (aka the Force, Zoë, evolution, vril, serpent power, seething energies of Lucifer) acting on matter almost certainly exist according to prominent scientist Stephen Hawking and many others.

Hawking warns against contact with deep space aliens because he believes that since they would be a very highly evolved life-form they would view human kind as a primitive life-form to be conquered and used as slaves or worse. 

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker also believes in the existence of aliens.  The author of "The Color Purple" is a disciple of David Icke, thus like him she believes the world is run by shape-shifting reptilian aliens who practice mind control from the moon.   In his book, 'Human Race Get off Your Knees: The Lion Sleeps No More' Icke describes how the human mind is controlled from the moon which he claims is actually a “gigantic spacecraft” which sends us a

fake reality broadcast... in much the same way as portrayed in the Matrix movie trilogy."  ("Prize-winning author Alice Walker gives support to David Icke on Desert Island Discs," Liam O'Brien, independent.uk, Sunday 19 May 2013)

Depending on which camp extraterrestrial believers fall into, they either view aliens with great fear and horror or as the saviors of mankind who will rescue the earth in the process.   The Vatican's astronomer Dr. Guy Consolmagno, an avowed evolutionist and self-confessed science fiction fan said he would even be happy to baptize an alien.   (I’d love to baptize ET, says Vatican’s stargazer, dailymail.co.uk, 25 January, 2011)

Other Christian UFO believers have rapture-type events predicted for the future while many others are tormented by waking-visions and nightmares by what one man describes as demons,

"(and) the feeling of paralysis and being incapable of  speaking. All I could do in such a situation was mentally pray in Jesus name for deliverance. I would then feel the ‘presence’ leave and I’d wake up." ("Aliens, evolution and the occult," Gary Bates, creation.com, 24 February 2007)

Bates notes that he has heard many such testimonies and today increasing numbers of people are having very similar experiences with demons and evil spirits masquerading as aliens.

The Myth of Extraterrestrials

In his book, "Scientific Mythologies," James A. Herrick traces the highly evolved 'aliens from outer-space' idea back to certain Renaissance astrologers, occult Hermetic-Cabbalists, and mystics such as Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) who claimed to not only receive telepathic secrets from spirits but to have visited populated planets during self-hypnosis induced mystical experiences.

Swedenborg's mystical experiences and visits to planets bear a striking similarity to those of ex-guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj. Now a committed follower of Jesus Christ, Maharaj describes his mystical encounters with gods on other planets:

"Nothing was more important than our daily transcendental meditation, the heart of Yoga, which Krishna advocated as the surest way to eternal Bliss. But it could also be dangerous. Frightening psychic experiences awaited the...meditator, similar to a bad trip on drugs. Demons described in the Vedas had been known to take possession of some Yogis. Kundalini power, said to be coiled like a serpent at the base of the spine, could produce ecstatic experiences when released in deep meditation — or...it could do great mental and bodily harm. The line between ecstasy and horror was very fine...During daily meditation I began to have visions of psychedelic colors, to hear unearthly music, and to visit exotic planets where the gods conversed with me, encouraging me to attain even higher states of consciousness. Sometimes in my trance I encountered the same horrible demonic creatures...depicted by the images in Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto, and other religious temples. It was a frightful experience, but the Brahmacharya explained that it was normal and urged me to pursue the quest for Self Realization. At times I experienced a sense of mystical unity with the universe. I was the universe, Lord of all, omnipotent, omnipresent. My instructors were excited at this. I was obviously a chosen vessel, destined for early success in the search for union with Brahman. The Forces that had guided my father were now guiding me." (Death of a Guru, Rabindranath R. Maharaj, pp. 56-57)

Swedenborg's influence is far-reaching. His disciples run the gamut from Kant to the occult theosophist Madame Blavatsky and psychologist J.B. Rhine together with a vast array of science fiction writers (i.e., Arthur C. Clarke, H.G. Wells, Ray Bradbury, and Steven Spielberg), contemporary spiritists and numerous evolutionary scientists.

Over time, Swedenborg's astral plane travels gave birth to what Herrick dubs "The Myth of the Extraterrestrial." As far back as the seventeenth century enthusiastic science fiction writers were imagining "the intelligent extraterrestrial visitor" and preparing the public to accept their existence. And accept them they have, for the twentieth century has witnessed a veritable population explosion in the alien domain, said Herrick. (p. 43)

Indeed, many UFO messages have been received and channeled by contactees (mediums) who claim to be receiving special revelations from our ‘space brothers.’   Some of these 'revelations' have even become the basis of block-buster movies featuring reptilian, grey, and humanoid Nordic extraterrestrials.

Tragically, because science fiction has become our national myth and evolution (the universal life force) is widely accepted throughout the West and taught in Western schools and many seminary's as science, secularized high-school children actually believe there must be some kind of evolutionary Star Wars-like ‘force’  behind the universe.   Along with many deluded atheist scientists, Hollywood liberals, and like-minded progressives, some students even believe that highly evolved and technologically advanced aliens seeded life on earth.  

Panspermia is the idea that life on earth was accidentally seeded by meteorites containing the essential building blocks of life or perhaps by highly evolved extraterrestrials who for billions of years have been guiding the evolution of man. The extraterrestrial idea was favored by Arthur C. Clarke in his book, "Childhood's End" and a variation on this theme has been advanced by SETI researcher Paul Davies, Francis Crick (co-discoverer of the DNA molecule) and Ralph Pudritz of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.

Davies has written seriously about the possibility of "alien bioengineering" that could be detected in the DNA of life on earth and suggests that citizen scientists and school students be enlisted to help search for evidence. (An Alien Code Close to Home: Seeking ET Beyond the Radio Silence, Astrobiology Magazine, Jeremy Hsu, 10/27/2011)

Pudritz theorizes that humans and aliens may share the same DNA which itself could be part of a universal structure

"of the first genetic codes anywhere...." (Why Aliens Might Look like You, Eddie Wren, dailymail.co.uk/ June 11, 2012)

Crick proposes a theory called "directed panspermia," the idea that,

"...life on earth may have begun when aliens from another planet sent a rocket ship containing spores to seed the earth."

Like all other dead-end evolutionary cosmologies, Crick’s theory only pushes the unresolvable problem of the origin of life out into deep space:

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

In a big picture sense, the whole realm of UFO beliefs is a religious idea built upon evolution, yet another religious idea said Bates:

The common denominator of both camps is the belief that evolution has occurred for countless eons on the earth and all over the universe. This point cannot be  emphasized strongly enough—it is the basis for virtually all belief in alien life, whatever form one thinks that life may take.”  (ibid, Aliens, evolution and the occult)

Extraterrestrials: Lucifer’s Elite Troops

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) is a highly respected German theologian who pastored, counseled and delivered people suffering from the occult and demonic bondage throughout the world, covering sixty-five countries and five continents.  In “Occult ABC,” Koch identifies extraterrestrials as Lucifer’s elite troops.  Even though UFO’s were seen in previous centuries, today’s UFO’s are heralds of the end-time. They appear most frequently in countries where the cult of Satan flourishes and their most obvious purpose is to destroy faith in Christ and the Bible and replace it with hell-born wisdom.   Lucifer is sending his elite troops ahead:

He is arming for the final battle.”  (pp. 341-342)

  "....blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it." Luke 11:28

In "Wisdom and Foolishness," Dr. Harry Reeder, senior minister of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Ala. writes that God's Word reveals two types of wisdom.  The first is worldly wisdom which is "earthly, unspiritual, demonic."  This hell-derived wisdom leaves in its wake chaos, brokenness, factions, death, and destruction.  The second is wisdom from above, granted by the Triune God to those who ask for it:

"It is found in His word, and it is accessed by hearing that Word faithfully preached and then embedding it into our lives through obedience."  (Biblical Dichotomies, Tabletalk, p. 19)

The first wisdom is not of God but of the creative imagination of man run wild.  It is,

"… actually 'the foolishness of man' masquerading as wisdom and propagated by man-made religions and a myriad of 'isms'---humanism, progressivism, materialism, consumerism, secularism, etc." 

Of all the foolishness of man masquerading as wisdom today, there is no more destructive and demonic than evolutionism.  Evolutionism is hell-derived metaphysical sophistry pretending to be factual science which for millions of deluded seculars and their evolutionary theist counterparts has effectively become a new religion that supplants the Revealed Word of God:

"...the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."  2 Cor. 4:4

Over eighteen hundred years ago the Apostle Paul foretold all of this,

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.”  (I Timothy 4:1)

Well done, good and faithful servant! (Matthew 25:21)

"There are too many who reject God’s prophets. They do so with growing vehemence and abusive treatment. Many today despise the Church, despise the Scriptures, despise fathers, mothers, friends, and Christians in general who seek to clarify and apply God’s Word and to warn of the need to be ready. It is quite possible that, for any of us, repeated resistance can cause a hardening of the heart to set in. In the end, there are some, in fact many according to Jesus, who effectively kill the life of God within them and utterly reject the Kingdom of God and its values. They do not want to live lives that show forth forgiveness, mercy, love of enemies, chastity, justice, love of the poor, generosity, kindness, and witness to the Lord and the truth."    (Sinner Please Don’t Let This Harvest Pass – A Homily for the 27th Sunday of the Year, Msgr. Pope)

When Msgr. Pope penned these words doubtless he was thinking not of himself but of others today who have been called by our Lord in these dark, trying times to the work of prophet.   But Msgr. Pope is indeed a good, faithful, courageous prophet of our Lord whose love for other people leads him to speak hard truths (i.e., creation ex nihilo, sin, judgment, hell) that most people, including large numbers of professing Christians, no longer want to hear and are increasingly hostile toward.

My respect and admiration for this good, faithful, obedient servant of our Lord is great.  Though surrounded by weak, fearful, apathetic, compromising and vain glorious clergy, administrators, and other wolves in sheep's clothing there in the Archdiocese of Washington who resent him and recently exposed their intolerance of truth by removing one of his posts Msgr. Pope continues to use the Archdiocese website to reach out to and call back to the faith all who have drifted away, are indifferent, or who have been hurt and betrayed by wolves in sheep's clothing within the church. 

For those with ears to hear can be heard the praise of our Master:  "Well done, good and faithful servant!"

The Orwellian Peace Symbol: Doublethink for Hatred & Death

"The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental , nor do they result from from ordinary hypocrisy: they are deliberate exercises in doublethink"  ― George Orwell, 1984 
 
 The very popular peace symbol, we see it everywhere today on everything from children's clothing, to T-shirts, jewelry, and purses.   But in the tradition of doublethink it means hatred, war, and death, not peace.  The symbol used by the so-called peace movement is the Teutonic rune of death.  Also called the Neronic Cross and Toten Rune, Nazis used it to replace the Christian cross on Waffen-SS graves.  
 
In "Occult ABC" Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who pastored, counseled and delivered more than 20,000 people suffering from occult bondage, writes that at the time of the first-century persecution of Christians, the "peace symbol," an inverted cross with its arms broken, was called the Neronic cross.   It was on such a cross that the apostle Peter was crucified upside-down.  Koch comments:
 
"The symbol of peace thus signifies an inverted cross and is a symbol of hatred against Christians." (Occult ABC, p. 242)
 
In the eighth century, the Saracens fought in Spain against the Catholic church.  Their warriors had the symbol of death, the Neronic cross, painted on their shields:
 
"The same symbol of hatred against Christians was used by the Saracens when they fought against the Crusaders in A.D. 1099."
 
By the Middle Ages, the Neronic cross took on more sinister meaning:
 
"...the Neronic cross---known in many places as the pentagram---served as the symbol of the black mass, satanic cults and blasphemy."
 
During the 20th century the Neronic cross became the symbol for the "peace" movement. It was the arch-communist Bertrand Russell who adapted the Neronic cross as the now famous peace symbol because he himself was a determined enemy of Christianity.  According to Koch, the "peace" symbol popularized by Russell has been worn by various arch-enemies of Christianity from leaders of the communist student movement in the USA to Russian trained Arab guerillas and the black pope Anton La Vey.

"Simon Peter at last sees it all as Jesus saw it all from the beginning. Even then, Simon sees it from a topsy-turvy angle. He and some two thousand other Christians have been tied to crosses stuck upside down on the grassy embankment around the Imperial Gardens on Vatican Hill. They have been daubed with pitch. Tonight they are to be living, screaming, dying torches. Emperor Nero, his lovely concubine Poppaea, and their guests will have light to eat by and sights to joke about. Each Christian will die in the classic sign of Satan — the upside-down cross." ("Capturing the Pagan Mind, Peter Jones, p. ix)

 From the first century crucifixion of Christians up to our own time, the popular "peace" symbol has signified hatred and death against Christians.   In this light, no Christian should ever wear this evil symbol.

Of Madness, Gay Bullyboys, Mobs, Beheadings and Other Evils in America

"Alton Nolen, the man who brutally beheaded a co-worker in Oklahoma was an evangelizing Muslim, had the phrase, "As-Salaamu Ataikum" tattooed on his body, and had a lengthy arrest and conviction record.  According to Oklahoma State’s “Offender Lookup,” Nolen was arrested for a number of felonies, including assault and battery, possession and planning to distribute cocaine, and trying to escape from prison.  For some reason, Nolen did not serve his entire sentence, then his sentence for possession of a controlled substance (separate from the one listed above) and assault and battery were suspended. Because of this, Nolen was free to behead a coworker." (Muslim Who Beheaded Co-Worker Had Felony Assault Sentences Suspended, Aurelius, Pundit Press, Sept. 26, 2014)

"A goofy guy named Adam Weinstein writing for a goofy website called Gawker has called for the jailing of those who deny global warming. Weinstein says, “there is the body of purulent pundits, paid sponsors, and corporate grifters who exploit the smallest uncertainty at the edges of a settled science.” (The Gay Bullyboys Want You Jailed, Austin Ruse, Sept. 26, 2014)

Those who disagree with Weinstein on a scientific and political point are criminally negligent and should face not just fines but even prison.

"As goofy as he is, he’s not the only one. Just this past weekend serial adulterer Robert Kennedy Jr., who may have driven his second wife to suicide—and who also attended the New York march on climate change—also called for the jailing of those who disagree with him." 

In an attempt at placating the Ferguson mob, the police chief of Ferguson, Missouri, foolishly marched with protesters calling for his resignation:

"Appearing in civilian clothes, Police Chief Thomas Jackson triggered scuffles and a standoff in the St. Louis suburb after joining a march late Thursday outside of his force's headquarters. Hours earlier, he'd released a video apology to the Brown family."  More violence broke-out. (Ferguson, Missouri's Police Chief Joins Michael Brown Protesters, F. Brinley Bruton and Richie Duchon, NBC News, 9/26/2014)

Collectively speaking, America is no longer sane but mad. A spirit of madness works through the minds of millions of Americans living in the deepening shadows of the death of the God of Revelation at the hands of apostatizing Christians who "murdered" Him during the 19th century.  

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

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

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

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

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

Though apostates and the apostatizing professed themselves wise, their cognitive thought processes would become darkened (vain) and with their conscience dead to sin they would become fools, meaning for instance, that they would accept and publicly profess incredibly stupid conceptions of themselves such as man is an evolved worm, ape or robot; man is evolving into god.

In our own time the terrifying consequences of His "death" are still coming to fullness.  Nevertheless, it is already the case that when for millions of people the God of Revelation does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose with neither hope of an afterlife nor any accountability to their Maker for their actions here in this world then gay bullyboys, Robert Kennedy, Alton Nolen and the Ferguson mob no longer have reason and purpose for being good, thus are free to be evil. Men are at liberty to cheat, steal, lie and invoke meaningless law and perverted justice to destroy freedom, dismember babies, brutally cut off the heads of men, women, and children, force disordered appetites upon society and riot, steal and burn down cities when angered. They are free to accuse the good man of evil, to enslave other people and deprive them of their liberty. With this freedom power-abusing politicians and jurists vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others and throw our borders open to floods of illegals, rapists, drug-lords, ISIS, pedophiles, murderers and other sinister individuals.

In his poem "The Second Coming," Yeats describes our age:

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

(James 3:15) Evolutionism: the Hell-Born Foolishness of Man

In "Wisdom and Foolishness," Dr. Harry Reeder, senior minister of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Ala. writes that God's Word reveals two types of wisdom.  The first is worldly wisdom which is "earthly, unspiritual, demonic."  This hell-derived wisdom leaves in its wake chaos, brokenness, factions, death, and destruction.  The second is wisdom from above, granted by God to those who ask for it:

"It is found in His word, and it is accessed by hearing that Word faithfully preached and then embedding it into our lives through obedience."  (Biblical Dichotomies, Tabletalk, p. 19)

On the other hand, worldly wisdom is not of God but of man:

" (it is) actually 'the foolishness of man' masquerading as wisdom and propagated by man-made religions and a myriad of 'isms'---humanism, progressivism, materialism, consumerism, secularism, etc." 

Of all of the foolishness of man masquerading as wisdom today, there is no more destructive and demonic than evolutionism.  Evolutionism is metaphysical sophistry (evolutionary scientism) pretending to be factual science, and here is nothing factual about it as even Karl Popper (1902-1994), a British philosopher and a professor at the London School of Economics admitted. Because he is regarded as one of the greatest philosophers of science of the 20th century, what Popper had to say about evolutionism, but Darwinism in particular, is of utmost importance to the increasingly ugly war being waged by evolutionists and their theological counterparts against faithful creationists.

Though Popper was an evolutionist, he nevertheless honestly stated that Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory but rather a metaphysical research program. By this he means that not only is Darwinism metaphysical (spiritual), but so are its' two most important foundations, classical empiricism and the observationalist philosophy of science that grew out of it.

Empiricism is a theory of knowledge that contradicts and refutes itself by asserting that human knowledge comes only or primarily via sensory experience rather than the mind while observationalism asserts that human knowledge and theories must be based on empirical observations....instead of the mind. For this reason, Popper argued strongly against empiricism and observationalism, saying that scientific theories and human knowledge generally, is conjectural or hypothetical and is generated by the creative imagination.
 
Where they speak frankly, evolutionists not only admit their fear and hatred of the Triune God of Revelation who spoke all things into existence ex nihilo but confess that their so-called 'scientific theories,' the products of their imaginations, are foolishness:
 
"...one belief that all true original Darwinians held in common, and that was their rejection of creationism, their rejection of special creation. This was the flag around which they assembled and under which they marched.... The conviction that the diversity of the natural world was the result of natural processes and not the work of God was the idea that brought all the so-called Darwinians together in spite of their disagreements on other of Darwin's theories. (One Long Argument,1991, p. 99, Ernst Mayr, 1904–2005, Professor of Zoology at Harvard University)

"We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door." ("Billions and Billions of Demons," Richard Lewontin (b. 1929), PhD Zoology, Alexander Agassiz Research Professor at Harvard University)
 
Evolutionism is a fraud.  It is metaphysical sophistry, and this is why Mark Armitage, a scientist at California State University—Northridge (CSUN) was fired after he discovered soft tissue on a Triceratops fossil, an obvious refutation of the tens of millions of years story necessary to the evolution myth.  
 
Armitage worked as a researcher and supervised the school’s electron microscope laboratory. He was also a member of several scientific organizations, including the Microscopy Society of America, the American Society of Parasitologists, and the Southern California Academy of Sciences, but God-hating evolutionists forced him out, declaring  “We will not tolerate your religion in this department!” (‘We Will Not Tolerate Your Religion!’ School Fires Scientist for Questioning Evolution, Garrett Haley, Christian News Network, July 24, 2014)
 
Again, evolution is a fraud, as Colin Patterson attests.  Patterson writes that after studying evolutionary theory for many years, he finally "woke up and realized that all my life I had been duped into taking evolutionism as revealed truth in some way." Patterson goes on to say:

"One of the reasons I started taking this anti-evolutionary view, or let's call it a non- evolutionary view, was last year I had a sudden realization for over twenty years I had thought I was working on evolution in some way. One morning I woke up and something had happened in the night and it struck me that I had been working on this stuff for twenty years and there was not one thing I knew about it. That's quite a shock to learn that one can be so misled so long. Either there was something wrong with me or there was something wrong with evolutionary theory. Naturally, I know there is nothing wrong with me, so for the last few weeks I've tried putting a simple question to various people and groups of people....Question is: Can you tell me anything you know about evolution, any one thing, that is true? I tried that question on the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History and the only answer I got was silence. I tried it on the members of the Evolutionary Morphology Seminar in the University of Chicago, a very prestigious body of evolutionists, and all I got there was silence for a long time and eventually one person said, 'I do know one thing — it ought not to be taught in high school.'"   ("Evolutionism and Creationism" November 5, 1981, p. 2, Colin Patterson (1933–1998), Senior Paleontologist at British Museum of Natural History)
 
Millions of people, including great numbers of professing Christians and even Pope Benedict have been deceived by the foolishness of man masquerading as science.  On July 24, 2009 Pope Benedict XVI delivered a homily in northern Italy's Cathedral of Aosta before Vespers. Toward the end of his homily he praised the French Jesuit heretic Pierre Teilhard de Chardin as a model for priests, attributing to him the idea of a cosmic liturgy, which he said was something they should aim to achieve:

"So our address to God becomes an address to ourselves: God invites us to join with him, to leave behind the ocean of evil, hatred, violence and selfishness and to make ourselves known, to enter into the river of his love...."Let Your Church offer herself to You as a living and holy sacrifice. This request, addressed to God, is made also to ourselves. It is a reference to two passages from the Letter to the Romans. We ourselves, with our whole being, must be adoration and sacrifice and, by transforming our world, give it back to God." (Benedict XVI Praises Cosmic Liturgy of Teilhard de Chardin; traditioninaction.org)
 
Evolution: the Universal Energy

 On one level, evolutionism is passed off as factual science.  It's at a deeper level however, that evolutionism's occult power is found and wielded by magicians like Teilhard de Chardin.  Though Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) passed himself off as an evolutionary scientist he was actually a New Age Hindu-style pantheist and occult Hermetic and alchemical magician who on behalf of his Great Work, sought fusion of opposites, for example, of Jesus Christ with both Shiva (The Destroyer) and Lapis Philosophorum (enlightenment, elixir of life), and himself with Omega point (Void, Abyss), the very substance of God.
 
Western esotericism, or occultism, is the search for and study of an unseen reality. It is arcane knowledge of the hidden and its' powers. This arcane knowledge is meant only for certain people such as Teilhard de Chardin and fellow practitioners of the magic way.

Occult sciences include, but are not limited to, Hermetic magic, alchemy, astrology, divination, and spiritualism (contact with spirits). Interpretation of occultism and its concepts can be found in nature philosophies, esoteric evolutionary biology and occult pagan systems such as Gnosticism, Cabbala, Theosophy, Wicca, Satanism, Thelema and neo-paganism.

A general definition is offered by Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke:

"Occultism has its basis in a religious way of thinking, the roots of which stretch back into antiquity and which may be described as the Western esoteric tradition. Its principal ingredients have been identified as Gnosticism, the Hermetic treatises on alchemy and magic, Neo-Platonism, and the Kabbalah, all originating in the eastern Mediterranean area during the first few centuries AD." (The Occult Roots of Nazism, Good-Rick-Clarke, p. 17)

Under cover of 'modern science,' evolutionary biology is actually arcane gnosis arising from a religious outlook based in a philosophy of naturalism and programmatic alchemy. When asked why the layman should be interested, "...in so esoteric a subject as evolutionary biology," one of the leading evolutionists of our day, Professor S.J. Gould, candidly responded:
 
"Because it tells us where we came from, how we got here, and perhaps where we are going. Quite simply, it is science's version of Roots, except it is the story of us all." (The Religious Nature of Evolution Theory and its Attack on Christianity, John G. Leslie and Charles K. Pallaghy, Ph.D, creation.com)

Evolutionary biology's genesis account is an inverted exegesis, an ancient alchemical vision holding that billions of years ago lifeless chemicals were magically birthed from 'nothing' when a fiery Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) inexplicably exploded. Then these dead things magically combined and transcended themselves after a hundred or a thousand identical operations thereby allowing the miraculous transmutation of dead things into life. Once life miraculously arose from the dead, natural processes (occult powers) were set in motion that after passage of vast ages supposedly eventuated in the arrival of man:

"If man has arrived at his present state as a result of natural processes rather than a supernatural will, he can learn to control these processes...The concept of evolution, which is now basic to the life sciences, has provided new and in some ways revolutionary answers to questions men have been asking for centuries. The two most important of these are, 'Why am I here, what is the purpose of human existence, and what is the nature of the world of life that surrounds us?" (Dobzhansky, T., Ayala, F.J., Stebbins, G.L. and Valentine, J.W., Evolution, W.H. Freeman and Co., San Francisco, 1977)

Teilhard's goal was not the mere control of hidden powers but the ancient quest of alchemy to perfect the material world or cosmos thereby transmuting (deifying) himself by way of his own fusion with the Divine Energy variously known throughout the ancient and modern world as Serpent Power, Zoe, the Force, Vril, and Kundalini, for example.  According to occult lore, the Divine Energy evolves or emanates from the Watery Abyss, Void, Divine Mens, Omega, Brahman or Quantum Void – the energy field,

"...from which all material energies emanate." (The Meaning of the Magicians, Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier, p. 118)

Pauwels and Bergier's book heralded a new dawning of an age of alchemy. Like Carl Jung and Teilhard they understood the religious impulse of alchemy:

"For the alchemist, it must never be forgotten that power over matter and energy is only a secondary reality. The real aim of the alchemist's activities, which are perhaps the remains of a very old science belonging to a civilization long extinct, is the transformation of the alchemist himself, his accession to a higher state of consciousness...Everything is oriented towards the transmutation of man...his deification, his fusion with the divine energy... (and) as Teilhard put it: 'The real aim of physics should be to integrate Man as a totality in a coherent representation of the world." (ibid)

Alchemy is above all the ancient royal occult science of the secret initiates of Babylon, the gnostic magicians who sought esoteric knowledge in their quest to perform the great work. Mircea Eliade explains:

"The aim of the opus magnum (great work) was at once the freeing of the human soul and the healing of the cosmos....In the eyes of the alchemists, observes Jung, Christianity saved man but not nature. It is the alchemist's dream to heal the world in its totality; the Philosopher's Stone is conceived as the Filius Macrcosmoi who heals the world...The ultimate goal of the opus is Cosmic Salvation; for this reason, the Lapis Philosophorum is identified with Christ." (The Forge and the Crucible: The Origin and Structure of Alchemy, 1956, p. 225)

Teilhard began his great work by conjuring a New Religion:

"As you already know, what dominates my interest and my preoccupations is the effort to establish in myself and to spread around a new religion (you may call it a better Christianity) in which the personal God ceases to be the great Neolithic proprietor of former times, in order to become the soul of the world; our religious and cultural stage calls for this." (Lettres a Leontine Zanta, quoted by von Hildebrand in Trojan Horse in the City of God, 1967, p. 239)

He consciously abandoned the 'old' unscientific, anti-evolutionary form of Christian theism which held that Jesus Christ

"...is the beginning of the creation of God" (Apoc. 3:14), "the firstborn of every creature: For in Him were all things created in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible...He is before all, and by Him all things consist...that in all things He may hold the primacy." (Col. 1:15-18)

He had nothing but contempt for Scripture's six day creation account, the fall of Adam and Eve, Jesus Christ and His work on the cross, His bodily resurrection and ascension, and hope of eternal life in Paradise:

"...all those goody-goody romances about the saints and the martyrs! Whatever normal child would want to spend eternity in such boring company?" (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 584)

We need a 'new definition of holiness,' said Teilhard, one that is predicated upon science and evolutionary change rather than the outdated, restrictive "for other foundation no man can lay, but that which is laid; which is Christ Jesus." (1Cor 3:11) Henceforth, all theories, hypotheses, systems, Christianity and Jesus Christ Himself must bow before esoteric science and evolution if they are to be thinkable and true:

"The modern world is a world in evolution; hence the static concepts of the spiritual life must be rethought and the classical teachings of Christ must be reinterpreted." (ibid)

Toward the goal of Cosmic Salvation Teilhard subsumed Jesus Christ (John 1:1) into His own creation and secularized and paganized Christian theism to become the prophet of alchemy who has discovered that through fusion of universal evolutionism and Jesus Christ the cosmos becomes divine. In this way the magician promises to fulfill the ancient quest: the opus magnum. With this great power, said Teilhard:

"...I can increase the density of the divine atmosphere...that atmosphere in which it is always my one desire to be immersed...." (ibid)

Now that the cosmos is God, and the cosmos is evolving, then God too is in process of evolving, therefore,

"...the World...endomorphizes God, and that God....transforms himself as He incorporates us...All around us and within our own selves, God is in the process of changing...." (The Heart of the Matter, de Chardin, pp. 52-53)

In place of 'the earlier conception that God could create instantaneously,' the magician now teaches that God is both the Evolver and the object of evolution and,

"...cannot create except evolutively." (Christianity and Evolution, de Chardin, p. 179)

Teilhard's 'God' is not the omnipotent, omniscient, living, personal God Who called everything into existence in six days, but an "it:"

"...God's power has not so free a field for its action as we assume; on the contrary...it labors to produce...it is always obliged, in the course of its creative effort, to pass through a whole series of intermediaries and to overcome a whole succession of inevitable risks..." (ibid, p.31)

The evolving "it" has deified human consciousness through three great leaps of evolution:

1. Cosmo genesis (Big Bang): the explosive birth of energy then matter from nothingness

2. Biogenesis: alchemical transmutation of life from chemicals eventually followed by living forms

3. Noogenesis: the evolution of human consciousness which heralds the emergence of "cosmogenesis-God," the impersonal "it" that replaces,

"...the Father-God of two thousand years ago..." (ibid, p. 202)

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." (Seraphim Rose, p. 590, emphasis added)

In conclusion, evolutionism is an abomination of desolation: metaphysical sophistry; sleight of hand; magic; serpent power, kundalini, zoe; Vril, Teilhard's Golden Calf.   It is the hell-born foolishness of man masquerading as science.

The Two Towers of Middle Earth & the City of Man: America's Unfolding Story

The willful disobedience of Adam and Eve resulted in their fall out of communion with God (spiritual death), and though they lived on for hundreds of years they eventually died because spiritual death made them subject to physical death. In fact, the antediluvian world was eventually destroyed and all of its' spiritually dead, horribly depraved citizens, save a remnant, died because when God sent Adam and Eve into exile and cursed the world, this means in practice that the tendency of everything is inevitably toward disorder, chaos, dementia, evil and death. 

St. Augustine understood this principle to mean that as civilizations consist of fallen people whose natural tendency is toward self-love (narcissism) solidified both in rebellion against God and in lawlessness and moral and intellectual disorder or madness (unless saved by Christ), then civilizations, no matter how promising at their beginning, will always disintegrate, implode, collapse and die. 

Writing at the time of the collapse of the Roman Empire, St. Augustine writes in the “City of God” that the disintegrating, dying Rome populated by wicked citizens is a worldly City of Man in which every unrighteous man, whether king or slave, has as many masters as he has vices.   However, the righteous man, even though a slave to wicked men, is actually the free man.  Additionally, wicked men are not only the slaves of their unfettered libidos and intellectual madness but of the demons who influence their moral imbecility and inflame their disordered passions, as was the case with King Saul. (1 Sam. 16:14)  

Moving from Augustine to J.R.R. Tolkien, his genius was his ability to paint a complex, multi-dimensional portrait in words that allows us to see the visible manifestations of the City of Man and its' spiritually dead and depraved citizens.  The City of Man is represented by Tolkien's two towers.   The tower of Orthanc, the evil realm ruled by Saruman (an angelic being of the order of Maia) and the tower of Barad dur overlooking the blasted hell on earth created by Sauron, the evil Eye suspended between the twin horns of Barad-dur.   Sauron is the fallen angel who in Middle Earth is the first lieutenant of Morgoth (Lucifer).  The citizens of both Saruman's and Sauron's City of Man are the Orcs. 

It's in Tolkien's "Silmarillion," the Genesis account of the Middle Earth trilogy that we learn the identity of the Orcs.  They are of the first born children of Illuvatar, the Holy God of creation Who sang all things into existence ex nihilo and sustains all things by the power of His Word.   The Orcs then, are High Elves who by their willful rejection of the Light given them by Illuvatar are therefore abandoned by Him (John 3:19) so come under the influence and control of Morgoth, and in Middle Earth, Sauron and Saruman. 

As Middle Earth Orcs were animated by evil spirits there was no good left in them, hence they were full of lies, lust, covetousness, greed, and envy (2 Tim. 3).   This is why they most eagerly cannibalize each other in gratification of disordered passions as well as eat man-flesh since the children of Iluvatar (Quenya for "the Father of All," more commonly referred to as Eru, the Creator of everything) are the greatest objects of their hate and burning envy. Indeed, Orcs despise all things of Iluvatar---His Word, creation, life, truth, beauty, virtue-- and instead glory in the nihilistic worldview of demons: the godless universe of matter, psychic energy and animated powers. As Tolkien explained in The Hobbit:
 
"Now goblins are cruel, wicked, and bad-hearted. They make no beautiful things, but they make many clever ones. They can tunnel and mine as well as any but the most skilled dwarves, when they take the trouble, though they are usually untidy and dirty. Hammers, axes, swords, daggers, pickaxes, tongs, and also instruments of torture, they make very well, or get other people to make to their design, prisoners and slaves that have to work till they die for want of air and light. It is not unlikely that they invented some of the machines that have since troubled the world, especially the ingenious devices for killing large numbers at once, for wheels and engines and explosions always delighted them. (Tolkien, The Hobbit, 60)

The story of the City of Man and its' twin tower version under the dominion of Saruman and Sauron is the story of man from the pre-flood world to the post-flood world right through to our own age.   

This story of man is the story of history, said the well-respected pastor John MacArthur. In Acts 14:16 the Apostle Paul said, “In the generations gone by, He…God…permitted all the nations to go their own way:”

According to MacArthur, no Scripture more directly addresses abandonment and its consequences than Romans 1 does.  Here is the "most graphic and the most comprehensive discussion of what it means to be abandoned by God" and is the best passage to explain America's relentless slide into disintegration issuing into madness, confusion, lawlessness, sexual anarchy, and tyranny of evil.   

When the Spirit of the Lord abandons a society, one of the first things to become subject to the devil’s influence are the thoughts and feelings of the citizens:

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

Dr. Koch delineates other common features of evil societies:  

1. Warped, distorted, freakish characters; narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark natures, scoffing, mocking, cruel criticism, contempt and ridicule

2. Extreme, uncontrollable passions resulting in abnormal, compulsive sexuality, sodomy, bestiality, pederasty, pedophilia, lesbianism, androgyny (transgender); meanness, spite, hate, violence, wrath, explosive rage, belligerence, theft, rape, murder, killing of babies, beatings, terrorism

3. Compulsive dark thoughts of suicide and murder; hideous nightmares, the dreadful sensation of standing atop an abyss, anxiety states, persecution complexes

4. Sexualization of culture: sexualized women, teens, boys, girls, babies and animals; love of nudity and titillation, addiction to pornography and drugs

5. Automatic rebellion against any vestige of authority

6. Subjectivism and/or Moral relativism: the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil, natural and unnatural, truth and lie.  All ‘truth’ and ‘values’ are subject to each whining, demanding narcissist’s personal likes (whatever is coveted) and dislikes (whoever is hated and envied) since each narcissist is independent and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will

5. Naturalism: all that exists is nature or cosmos (matter), hence there can be no relevance in anything beyond our senses; there is nothing above us and no hell below

6. Madness or moral imbecility: all sense suddenly seems like nonsense, nothing is ever right, natural, good and true resulting in Nietzsche's trans-valuation of values

7. Demonic subjection: confusion, psychosis, psychopathy, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts against Jesus Christ, the Christian Church, Christians and Christian symbols, Holy Days, and prayer

The beginning of subjectivism is pride (love of self), the perfect anti-God, anti-truth, anti-higher knowledge state of mind. Thus subjectivism, a spirit of madness that inverts evil over good and lie over truth very obviously works through the minds of great numbers of Western and American subjectivists, both Christian and secular, who see themselves as the measure of good and evil, truth and lie. 

In practice subjectivism has led narcissistic theologians to elevate science over the Revelation of God and to reject creation ex nihilo, the fall, heaven and hell in favor of evolutionary conceptions resulting in churches that are no longer the Church of Jesus Christ, hence pillars of Truth but rock 'n roll temples of therapeutic deism attended by lawless Christians.   

Subjectivism also means that the sadistic dismemberment of late-term babies in the womb is not murder but a woman's 'choice,' while throwing open our borders in open invitation to terrorists, ISIS, drug lords and hoodlums is not treachery and betrayal but an act of benevolence.  

Nor is the beheading of an eighty-two year old British Christian woman a crime worthy of justice. Pamela Geller reports:

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

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

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

The beginning of subjectivism is pride (love of self), the perfect anti-God, anti-truth, anti-higher knowledge state of mind. According to early Church Father Athanasius, the truth as to the cause of the frenzy of madness and evil overtaking our own culture is no different from the cause of the madness and evil that swept the antediluvian world.   The truth as to evil lies in the perverted choice of darkened souls, said Athanasius,  

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

In this light we can see why,

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

As ever greater numbers of self-centered Americans---Christian and secular---reject the Light given them by their Creator our increasingly insane, lawless, pornographic, homosexualized, disunited, satanically inverted States of Godless America passes ever more quickly into a state of confusion, evil and stupefaction.   As God abandons America it becomes the City of Man populated by Orcs dominated by evil spirits.   This, the story of history, is now the unfolding story of America.

Destination Church: Vanguard of the Revolution?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 According to Rick Joyner, 

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

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

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

 What are these seven mountains?  

 1. Church 

2. Family 

3. Government 

4. Business 

5. Education 

6. Media 

7. Entertainment 

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

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

"Communism is the culminating hubris of the Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation.  It is scientism gone political." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)  

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

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

The Truth as to the Madness & Evil overtaking America

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

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

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

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

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

According to early Church Father Athanasius, the truth as to the cause of the frenzy of madness and evil overtaking our own culture is no different than the cause of the madness and evil that swept the antediluvian world.   The truth as to evil lies in the perverted choice of darkened souls, said Athanasius,  

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

The Meaning of Zombie Apocalypse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In this light it comes as no surprise that for increasing millions of Americans, secular and Christian alike, God exists for instance, as a divine energy within the mind of man, a voice speaking secret revelations into the minds of the chosen, or perhaps a god that can only create evolutively, according to the Hindu-pantheist apostate Teilhard de Chardin and like-minded evolutionary theists.  What this means is that for subjectivists, our Heavenly Father is merely a mouthpiece through which both narcissistic clergy and Christian masses self-righteously affirm ‘self’ and the 'impressive' theories, ideas, that ‘self’ thinks.

Because increasing numbers of contemporary Christian's elevate science above the Word of God they reflexively bow before the 'god' Evolution in its' many guises such as the Master-god-or-christ energy inside their own minds:

"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)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Over and across the entire denominational spectrum of America's man-centered, subjectivist church,

"...millions of Americans claim a divine right to their own spiritual cocoon and belief system." Americans, "now lay claim to their 'own personal Jesus.' This personal vision of Jesus Christ may well bear little or no resemblance to Jesus as He is revealed in the Bible." (The Disappearance of God, Dr. Albert Mohler, xiii)

Unless something changes said Barna,

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

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

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

Creation is, as it were, a book. Every creature is a sentence or a word in this book. The Author and Publisher is the Triune God. It is the task of human and angelic intelligence to read God’s thoughts from this book and co-operate with Him. The theme, the dominant idea that runs through each sentence—even each word—is the Word made Flesh, the Incarnate Word of God, Jesus Christ, because this Word says everything. This is why the Archangel says to Blessed Mary at the Incarnation, “No word will be impossible for God.” Evolution is not a word. It cannot be found in this book or in its theme. It is a fable (cf. 2Tim 4:4), a “strange doctrine” of which St. Paul warned us against so long ago."   (Christ the Exemplar Cause of Creation, Eliminates the Possibility of Evolution, Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation) 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Whatever a man places at the top of his pyramid of values is ultimately the Baal he serves. The ultimacy of that service profoundly affects not only how he thinks, speaks and acts  but where he will spend eternity.  When the society around him also turns away from the living God to ‘self’ and Baals, as the subjectivist Church and post-Christian West and America have done, it is an evil, idolatrous society heading for judgment and destruction.

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

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

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

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

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

Zombie Apocalypse

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

" It is called barbarism because of the fact that in those times men had no ruling authority or mutual accord, but every man was independent and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will."   (John of Damascus, "The Fount of Knowledge," cited in Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 131)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Before it's too late

The Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word become Flesh, Jesus Christ the Physician came to heal the spiritually sick. But whoever rejects the Physician, whether through indifference or outright denial, rejects His prescription, hence destroys him or herself:

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

Destruction does not mean annihilation of the soul. The soul though immortal, said St. Augustine, nevertheless suffers a kind of death when the living God forsakes it:

"...in that penal and everlasting punishment....the soul is...said to die because it does not live in connection with God (meaning that) though man does not cease to feel, yet because this feeling is neither sweet... nor wholesome (but) painfully penal, it is (called) death rather than life." (St. Augustine's City of God, Chapter 2, Of that Death Which Can Affect an Immortal Soul, and of that to Which the Body is Subject)

The Antichrist's Two-Fold Prophecy of Judgment Upon the West

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

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

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

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

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

  “ .....we have grown used to this kind of world; we even feel at home in it.”

Indeed. We are living in a spiritual, intellectual and moral void resulting from the "murder" of the Triune God of Revelation by Christian apostates during the 19th century.

After two mystical encounters with a spirit calling itself Zarathustra, the German philosopher Nietzsche, now calling himself the Antichrist,  delivered a two-fold prophecy of judgment upon the murderers of God.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Modernism: the Unrelenting Destructive Criticism of the Word of God

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

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

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

 In whatever form it takes, whether Darwinism or systems proposed and embraced by evolutionary theologians such as Teilhard or Hugh Ross for example, evolution is radically hostile to the Word of God.  The Bible clearly asserts that by the power of His Word the Triune God of Revelation created heaven and earth in six days (Special Creation).  Evolution either negates the Triune God and Special Creation outright or demands the Genesis account be allegorized or interpreted away to allow for evolution.   Either way, every doctrine of Scripture is undermined leaving Scripture without ultimate meaning and purpose. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Either the Bible is not all it claims to be or it is all it claims to be because it is the inerrant Word of God, and God does not lie but rather Satan, his legions and men do.  The fashionable view today however, affirms the trustworthiness of sinful men and the folly of their foolish wisdom (i.e., evolutionary scientism, Higher Criticism) over our Heavenly Father and His Word. This is why an affirmation of creation elicits hoots of derision, condemnation as anti-science, backwards fundamentalism and charges of child abuse and mental insanity.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2.Naturalism: one dimensional views of reality

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

4.Science religion

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

6.The nihilism of Buddha

Jesus Christ to Buddha,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Barbarism is that which prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah.  It is called barbarism because of the fact that in those times men had no ruling authority or mutual accord, but every man was independent and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will."   (John of Damascus, "The Fount of Knowledge," cited in Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 131)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The truth as to evil said Athanasius,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

According to the highly celebrated Jung, Philemon, a winged, horned demon, supervised and inspired the writing of the "Seven Sermons to the Dead."  Jung described the occasion like this:

"The whole house was....crammed full of spirits.   They were packed deep right up to the door, and the air was so thick I could hardly breathe...Then it began to flow out of me, and in the course of three evenings the thing (Septem Sermones ad Mortuos) was written." (Jung relates how his soul departed into the timeless realm)...the mystical land of the dead (and) soon after the.....'dead' appeared to me and the result was the Septem Sermones."   (To Hell and Back, Maurice S. Rawlings, M.D., p.143)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 "...I had a feeling that life was ebbing from me.  I felt powerful sensations of dread (then suddenly everything) turned a glowing red.   I saw twisted faces grimacing as they stared down at me (I tried to defend myself but) could no longer shut out the frightful truth: beyond the faces dominating this fiery world were faces of the damned.  I had a feeling of despair....the sensation of horror was so great it choked me.  Obviously I was in Hell itself (and then suddenly) the black silhouette of a human figure began to draw near...a woman...with lipless mouth and in her eyes an expression that sent icy shudders down my back.  She stretched out her arms...and pulled me by an irresistible force (into) a world filled with....sounds of lamentation....I asked the figure...who she was.  A voice answered: "I am death."  (German actor Curt Jürgen’s, To Hell and Back, pp. 76-77)

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

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

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

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

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

A 'New' Spirituality for Highly Evolved Humanity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stabilizing the U.S. population should be declared a national policy.  Immediate steps should be taken to explore 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)

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

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

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

 In order to save the world, our present religious, political, educational, economic and social structures must be dramatically transformed towards a holistic or communalistic (pantheist) New Age world-view wherein the human being is not created but evolved and no longer male and female distinct from the natural order with a living, personal Creator standing outside and above both.  Rather an evolving god-force and androgynous humans reside within and are aspects of Void--- the ultimate One Substance (energy field).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In paganized Westerners and apostatizing Christians alike, altered states by whatever means eventually end in an altered world view:

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

Kurt Koch (1913-1987) was a highly respected German minister who pastored, counseled and delivered somewhere around twenty thousand people suffering from demonic subjection in its various forms and manifestations throughout the world.  It may well be that there is no one with more first-hand experience and knowledge in the field of Satanism than Koch. 

According to Dr. Koch, one of the first things to become subject to the devil’s influence during trance states (altered state of consciousness) is a person’s thoughts and feelings:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Zohar and Marshal also find that when physicists probe the deep recesses of the universe they are confronted by a void, an indefinite and seemingly infinite field of energy that they call the ‘quantum vacuum,” a background without features that seems empty yet is where all physical objects originate:

All the waves and particles that we can see and measure, literally, as in the Greek, ex-ist or ‘stand out from’ an underlying sea of potential that physicists have named the vacuum….just as waves undulate on the sea.”  This ‘sea’ of proto-physicality is an “all pervasive, underlying field of potential…the vacuum.”   (ibid, p. 172)

The ‘quantum vacuum’ is strikingly similar to some Hindu and Buddhist accounts of the origins of physical objects as emanations from the One and/or the Void.   Nor do Zohar and Marshall deny the similarity: 

The vacuum spoken of by quantum physicists, like the Buddhist concept of Sunyata, or the Void, to which it is so similar, is replete with potentiality.”   (ibid)

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

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

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

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

In other words, the the essential matter and energy that modern "scientifically" enlightened men bow down before is as dead as their personal attributes since they are but the non-existing qualities of senseless substances unable to produce life, consciousness and soul.  Psalm 135: 15

The 'New' Spirituality   

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

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

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

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

Pantheism, hypnotic techniques, demonic bondage and possession, and the Doctrine of Emanation first appeared in the pre-flood world of Noah and now have taken up residence in America.  Under the banner of neo-paganism, mystical pantheism and evolution (emanation), science and nature theology have become virtually indistinguishable one from the other, a cause for celebration among global New Age socialist totalitarians, the vanguard leading the world into the same errors that ended in the catastrophe that overtook the antediluvian world.

Woody Allen's Frozen Soul

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

According to the highly celebrated Jung, Philemon, a winged, horned demon, supervised and inspired the writing of the "Seven Sermons to the Dead."  Jung described the occasion like this:

"The whole house was....crammed full of spirits.   They were packed deep right up to the door, and the air was so thick I could hardly breathe...Then it began to flow out of me, and in the course of three evenings the thing (Septem Sermones ad Mortuos) was written." (Jung relates how his soul departed into the timeless realm)...the mystical land of the dead (and) soon after the.....'dead' appeared to me and the result was the Septem Sermones."   (To Hell and Back, Maurice S. Rawlings, M.D., p.143)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"...I had a feeling that life was ebbing from me.  I felt powerful sensations of dread (then suddenly everything) turned a glowing red.   I saw twisted faces grimacing as they stared down at me (I tried to defend myself but) could no longer shut out the frightful truth: beyond the faces dominating this fiery world were faces of the damned.  I had a feeling of despair....the sensation of horror was so great it choked me.  Obviously I was in Hell itself (and then suddenly) the black silhouette of a human figure began to draw near...a woman...with lipless mouth and in her eyes an expression that sent icy shudders down my back.  She stretched out her arms...and pulled me by an irresistible force (into) a world filled with....sounds of lamentation....I asked the figure...who she was.  A voice answered: "I am death."  (German actor Curt Jurgens, To Hell and Back, pp. 76-77)

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

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

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

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

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

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

Saved by Christ from Satan's Cathedral of Pain

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amen!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What unite all Sinisterists are their hatreds:
 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 Tim. 3:5---Christless Christianity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 Tim. 3:5  concerns liberal theologians of our days. They profess a false Christianity, a scientifically enlightened, evolutionary pantheist religion that observes the outward form (God and Christ words, church buildings, sacraments, vestments, religious services, good works, etc.) of “godliness” (that is, “religion”), but reject its supernatural power, that is, the Triune God of Revelation, special creation, Original Sin, Jesus Christ God incarnate (John 1:1) , the resurrection, second coming, miracles, regeneration, judgment, heaven, and hell, thus because they do not believe Moses they cannot believe the words of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Their desire is for the things of this world: lofty position, prestige, power, applause and trappings of scientific and religious professionalism because they are “lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God:"

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

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

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

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

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