Romans 1:25--- America's Dying Soul

Robert P. George, Princeton University professor of jurisprudence is this country’s most influential conservative Christian thinker. In his essay, "After Same-Sex Marriage: Is Polyamory Next?" George states that if Obergefell stands the question of legal recognition of polygamous and other polyamorous partnerships cannot be avoided. The arguments of 'gays' and lesbians who want to retain the idea of same-sex marriage while denying legal recognition of polyamorous marriages will sound weaker and weaker, more and more like mere rationalizations for stigmatizing what many people (for now, at least) still find icky. But under the pressure of the natural human desire for rational consistency,

the liberal movement and the Democratic Party will gradually come to embrace the polyamorists’ cause. And liberal jurists, though they may swat away on procedural grounds the first few constitutional challenges to marriage laws excluding polyamorists’ romantic bonds from recognition, will eventually have to say B (logically embrace polyamory)."

Will there be a C? Sure:

That will likely be the abolition of laws against consensual adult incest (parent-child or sibling) and, correspondingly, the elimination of consanguinity laws forbidding marriage between a parent and his or her adult child and between adult siblings. Western Europe was a bit ahead of the U.S. on same-sex marriage, and is now pointing the way forward for sexual liberals on incest as well. Germany’s National Ethics Council this year issued a report urging parliament to revoke legal prohibitions of incest involving consenting adults, arguing that these prohibitions violate “fundamental freedoms” and “force people into secrecy or to deny their love.”

If one grants the premises of sexual liberalism—that consenting adults have a right to enter into whatever types of sexual relationships they like without state interference—and embraces the revisionist conception of same-sex marriage as committed sexual-romantic companionship,

"then what the German Ethics Council says has to be correct. Its logic is impeccable. If there is a flaw, it must be in the premises. And yet the premises are precisely the ones that have been adopted by the liberal movement and the Democratic Party in our time. So C will come in due course, unless A is abandoned." ("After Same-Sex Marriage: Is Polyamory Next?"  Robert. P. George, The American Interest, Aug. 25, 2015)

While Prof. George is correct in his assessment that the logic behind same-sex marriage justifies a right to polyamory followed logically by incest, the reach of his logic falls much too short. It needs to extend all the way back to the ultimate questions, particularly, "where did everything come from?" and "what is man?"

With respect to "where did everything come from?" the answer for Western civilization is the Revealed Word of God:

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Gen. 1:1) "...God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." (Gen. 1:27)
"You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you." (Nehemiah 9:6) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning." (John 1:1-2)  "You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being." (Rev. 4:11)

The supernatural One God in three Persons created two sexes, male and female, each one an individual person consisting of body and soul/spirit.  The term 'person' originated in Christian theologies developmental struggle to comprehend the nature and experience of the transcendent, personal Triune God:

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

Building off of this historically unique concept, St. Augustine (AD 354-430) affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent, personal One God in three Persons then it logically follows that each person is a trinity of being — of soul/spirit and body (physical matter).

In Christian thought, a person is a soul/spirit and personality is the total individuality of the soul/spirit. Without spirit (mind, will, and conscience) there is no person. It is on this historically unique Christian definition of person that America’s Constitutional Republic is grounded, making America’s founding documents great spiritual documents delineating the God-given spiritual property and temporal rights of “we the people.”

Ultimately, same-sex marriage, LGBTQ, polyamory and incest followed eventually and logically by bestiality are the fruit of the antithesis of the Revealed Word: modern evolutionary pagan monism and its two-in-one (androgyny) ideal.  The antithesis changes the truth of God into a lie so that the creature can worship and serve "him, her, or itself."  (Romans 1:25)

Modern Western monism is the fruit of a great cosmological shift that occurred in the seventeenth century. What the shift yielded was both an anti-supernatural Holy Creator God and wholly naturalistic or pagan understanding of the universe (monism), philosophy and scientific method and a secular-pagan understanding of man and politics:

The two occur as part of one revolution because the shift in the meaning of nature includes human nature as well.” (“Politicizing the Bible,” Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker, p. 257)

In the classic work “Earth’s Earliest Ages” (1876), G.H. Pember (1837-1910) provides affirmation of Wiker and Hahn’s conclusions. Pember, an English theologian, said today we see men “of this nineteenth century” returning to the evolutionary and monistic occult wisdom traditions of “long past, and modern thought sustaining its flight upon the wings of ancient lore.” Almost every characteristic,

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

Today anti-creation evolution, anti-supernatural monism, anti-two-created-sexes pagan ideal, and the ancient occult pagan lore undergirding all of it is promoted by its Gnostic pagan practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion,

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

Modern Gnostic pagans claim scientific neutrality as a general operating assumption. Two applications of modern pagan thought are deconstructionism and evolution, an anti-creation account predicated upon the idea of relentless change. Evolution is an inverted exegesis that deconstructs and reduces man in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons to a genderless aspect of the evolving universe of matter and energy, thus it is a species of deconstructionism (destructive criticism/critical theory) and relativism.

Deconstructionism is itself a form of relativism or nihilism (meaninglessness). For more than eighty years deconstructionism has been spilling into and contaminating our moral and culture sustaining institutions from seminaries and Biblical scholarship to academia, law, media, arts, and politics, thence our minds, individually and collectively.

Bill Cooper, author of The Authenticity of the Book of Genesis notes that for modern evolutionary pagans to choose to not believe the Word of God on an individual level is one thing. But in the past few hundred years the world has been witnessing a strange yet consistent phenomenon: institutionalized Biblical deconstructionism issuing in a concerted drive,

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

Evolutionary thinking, whether Gnostic pagan or theological (i.e., Teilhard de Chardin, Hugh Ross) rejects miraculous Special Creation (the six-day Genesis account ex nihilo) together with the Fall and teaches instead an inverted exegesis positing billions of years of evolutionary process eventuating in life arising from primordial matter, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.

This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else–maybe divine supermen, god-men, super robots or cosmic beings—-but nothing can be said about transgender, ‘gay,’ and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by a Big Bang which may or may not involve an impotent deistic or pantheist god shaped and limited by the theologians who are its creators.

With regard to soul/spirit, if life arose from chemicalsor a blob of matter and then billions of years later man evolved from lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth.  Like them he has no spirit—free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience.  He is a fleshy androgynous robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

Worse, all evolutionary monist conceptions, whether secular atheist or theological, ultimately lack a source for life, consciousness, soul, and personhood as all are merely different expressions of anti-human nihilism which makes man equal to or lower than the nonhuman.

This serves as a license for all manner of crimes against humanity, especially the weakest, the hated, envied, despised and inconvenient.  For example, in paganized America tens of millions of unborn humans have already been liquidated, our youth and now our military sexually perverted and mind-conditioned, and our Constitutional rights trashed while during the 20th century in excess of 160,000,000 human weeds, useless eaters, and unevolved dinosaurs were brutally murdered in one way or another by two evolutionary pagan regimes: the Godless pagan Soviet Union under Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin and the occult pagan National Socialist Germany under Hitler.

Today, the neutrality principle and evolutionary thinking are taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as they are in all aspects of modern thought and experience, especially within the progressive liberal community. Evolution not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines as well as occult New Age spirituality and 'Christian' theological permutations such as evolutionary theism and the progressive creationism popularized by astronomer Hugh Ross.

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

Today, Darwin’s theory touted as 'evolutionary fact' has finally reached saturation point in American government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, and increasingly within the whole body of the Church. This is why apostasy, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, pornography, drug use, mass murder, decadence, sodomy, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

It is also why America’s depraved, power-hungry, self-worshipping left-right ruling class has nearly succeeded in leveraging itself into the position of supreme law-givers and mind-and-conscience shapers.

America's Dying Soul

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

The soul of America is being amputated under the onslaught of the neutrality principle, evolutionary thinking and Darwinism in particular and theological modernism with the following consequences:

1.The abandonment of our transcendent Triune God means abandonment of His Law together with the unique Christian definition of person and everything built upon it---spiritual property, unalienable rights, and morality---thereby turning our founding documents into useless pieces of paper.

2. Abandonment of immutable truth and absolute morality means that the morally unfettered criminal minds of men are the measure of all things. This is why our so-called political leadership, opinion and culture shapers, jurists, academics, bureaucracy, Planned Parenthood and increasing numbers of theologians are self-righteous hypocrites, liars, crazies, and murderous psychopaths. Many of them believe they are evolving into supermen, transcended masters and gods.

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

4.  Powerful, influential occult New Agers honeycombed within the UN, non-governmental agencies, and at every level of our government, academia, entertainment, media, and elsewhere, have been working towards this sea-change for a very long time now. In their eyes, the disintegration of America not only heralds the death of the hated Old Order grounded on the Genesis account but heralds the long-awaited quantum leap in evolution, the catastrophic chaos that will utterly destroy the old order and usher in the utopian 'golden age' of Aquarius.

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

Tragically, todays’ Christian Church and Western culture have for so long been saturated with the worldview of the Evil One, meaning scientific neutrality and evolutionary monism paired with intellectual and moral autonomy, that the ungodly neutrality principle which deconstructs the Revealed Word and forbids the existence of the supernatural dimension, the fall, two sexes, immutable Truth and moral absolutes has been thoroughly ingrained in us. It is so constant and we are so accustomed to it that even within the church we fail to discern it.

Because of the triumph of the neutrality principle, millions ofspiritually darkened, morally debased Americans either do not know they are God’s spiritual image-bearers or because they have embraced evolutionary pagan or pantheism and reincarnation do not want to know. Either way, this is the real source of the spiritual cancer destroying our nation and freedoms that politics absolutely cannot fix.

The Way is still open however:

"Thou hast brought forth, O Lord, my soul from hell: thou hast saved me from them that go down into the pit." Psalm 30:3

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

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

Pride, Malice, Ressentiment and the Wrath of God

What is the devil’s favorite sin? According to Dominican Father Juan José Gallego, an exorcist from the Archdiocese of Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain, the sin the devil likes the most is pride.   (What Is the Devil’s Favorite Sin? Pride, Says an Exorcist, Catholic News Agency, Aug. 25, 2015) 
 
In his Commentary on Psalm 18/2, 15,  St. Augustine records that pride turned Lucifer into Satan and banned him eternally from heaven. It causes the soul to rebel against God and wander off into the darkness. This vice is thus no slight evil:
 
"It makes those infected with it refuse to bow their necks to the yoke of Christ while they harness themselves all the more tightly to the bondage of sin."
 
The Decalogue shows that the beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over the Holy Trinity and neighbor). The will of the proud man is not in submission to the Trinity but self, thus having made an idol out of himself as millions of Americans from the White House to the back alleys have done, he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why preference for self leads to contempt for truth, law (i.e.,the Constitution), wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, institutions and other people and their families, property, and wealth.   As a whole, Scripture combines pride with covetousness, greed, malice, hatred, and jealousy into a single concept (ressentiment) that is a manifestation of idolatry of self issuing in hatred of the Holy God and one's brother, which means that there can be no love whatsoever where there is envy (ressentiment) and hatred in one's heart. 
 
Ressentiment is the passion which causes evil.  It is the father of death,
 
"... the first entrance for sin, the root of wickedness, the birth of sorrow, the mother of misfortune, the basis of disobedience, the beginning of shame. Envy banishes us from paradise....Envy made Joseph a slave. Envy is the death-dealing sting, the hidden weapon, the sickness of nature, the bitter poison, the self-willed emaciation, the bitter dart, the nail of the soul, the fire in the heart, the flame burning on the inside..." (Life of Moses, Gregory of Nyssa, quoted in Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. Aquaro, p. 74)
 
In his first edition dictionary, "The American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828" Noah Webster defines ressentiment, or what he simply identifies as envy as,
 
"...pain, uneasiness, mortification or discontent excited by the sight of another's superiority (often spiritual)or success, accompanied by some degree of hatred or malignity, often or usually with a desire or an effort to depreciate the person, and with pleasure at seeing him depressed; malice, malignity, invidiousness, ill will."
 
According to Webster, malice is,

"extreme enmity of heart; malevolence; a disposition to injure others...from mere personal gratification or from a spirit of revenge."
 
Malice is inseparable from the following:
 
1. Malevolence: having an evil disposition towards another or others; wishing evil to others....a malevolent heart rejoices in the misfortune of others
 

2. Malign: to regard with envy or malice; to treat with extreme enmity; to injure maliciously
 
3. Malignant: malicious; having extreme malevolence; bitter enmity; malice

 
In his seminal work, "Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture," Herbert Schlossberg, a Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and leading scholar on the relationship between Christianity and the societies in which it has existed, writes that ressentiment begins with perceived injury occasioned by envy toward and covetousness of the spiritual and/or temporal possessions or qualities possessed by another person.  If the perception is not either sublimated,
 
 "...or assuaged by the doing of some injury to the object of the feeling, the result is a persistent mental condition, stemming from the repression of emotions that are not acceptable when openly expressed.  The result is hatred and the impulse to spite and to say things that detract from the other's worth." (p. 51)
 
Malevolence, or what Schlossberg describes as Schadenfreude, is the rejoicing at another person's suffering, thus vengeance is the principle manifestation of ressentiment.
 
Ressentiment has its origin in the tendency to make comparisons between the attributes of another and one's own attributes such as wealth, popularity, appearance, intelligence, success, personality, position, gender (straight male, straight female), children, and friends, for example.  Any perceived superior difference is enough to set the pathology in motion.  Thus ressentiment whispers continually:
 
"I can forgive everything, but not that you are---that you are what you are----that I am not what you are---indeed that I am not you."    (Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior, Helmut Schoeck, ibid, Schlossberg, p. 52)
 
The envied other's very existence is a reproach, 
 
"When heaven with such parts blest him, have I not reason to detest him?" is a genuine and natural expression of the human mind.  The man who writes as we cannot write, who speaks as we cannot speak, labors as we cannot labor, thrives as we cannot thrive, has accumulated on his person all the offenses of which man can be guilty.  Down with him! Why cumbereth he the ground?" (Schoeck)
 
Ressentiment as Genocidal Progressive/Communist/Socialist Politics of Evil
 
"Political Ponerology" is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej M. £obaczewski to an interdisciplinary study of the founders (i.e., Karl Marx) and supporters of 20th century totalitarian political regimes. His study utilizes data from psychology, sociology, philosophy, and history to account for the propagation of man's inhumanity to man through such phenomena as terrorism, aggressive war, ethnic cleansing, ostracism, genocide, and despotism:

"As many as 7 million Ukrainians were starved in Soviet Socialist dictator Joseph Stalin's artificial, forced famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. This is approximately the total population of Manitoba, Newfoundland, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island." (Inky Mark, M. P. Dauphin – Swan River House of Commons 2 June 1998, Famine-Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933)

"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)

"... On one side, millions of starving peasants, their bodies often swollen from lack of food; on the other, soldiers, members of the GPU carrying out the instructions of the dictatorship of the proletariat. They had gone over the country like a swarm of locusts and taken away everything edible; they had shot or exiled thousands of peasants, sometimes whole villages; they had reduced some of the most fertile land in the world to a melancholy desert." ( Malcolm Muggeridge, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)

"Food is a weapon." (Maxim Litvinov, Soviet Commissar of Foreign Affairs)

According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist and Socialist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were criminal enterprises in their very essence:

"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)
 
Financed by Western Progressives, a coalition of God-hating, ressentiment fueled atheist pagan Jews (Bolsheviks) and atheist pagan Gentiles (Marxist Communists) systematically stole the personal property of Russians. Fueled by malevolence, they sexually perverted their children and conditioned them to hate the Trinity, Jesus Christ God Incarnate in particular, as well as their own parents, the Christian church and their homeland. They undermined and destroyed the traditional family, unleashed a holocaust of abortion, homosexualized culture, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of more than sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

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

"Persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism – mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Bolshevism – is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history....Attempts at "killing the soul" started only months after the Revolution of 1917." Persecution and martyrdom was, "several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed. It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime." (New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com)

 Though Lobaczewski's study is a clinically accurate description of the nature of human evil it falls into the error of attributing evil to biological causes rather than the sin nature of man. Despite this failing, Political Ponerology is a shocking account of large scale evil super-heated by hatred of the Holy God and burning with ressentiment and will to power – or what Lobaczewski terms 'ponerogenic processes' that overtook modern Russia and have overtaken whole societies and nations since time immemorial.
 
Ressentiment has played a part in human dynamics ever since the Evil One persuaded the envy-bitten Cain to murder his brother Abel, Judas to betray Jesus Christ and the Pharisees to crucify Him, and Saul to suddenly throw his spear at David in a murderous attempt at pinning him to a wall. (1 Sam. 18:11) In fact, the envy-bitten Saul tried three times to kill David with a javelin (1 Sam. 18:10-11, 19: 9-10) and to bring about David's death by the Philistines. (1 Sam. 18:25)

After ancient Greece had been overtaken by a malevolent spirit of ressentiment, as is happening very quickly in America, an egalitarian, collectivist, or leveling impulse served to help relieve a malicious, envy-torn culture by leveling all men down to the lowest common denominator.   Ressentiment, or political correctness enforced by hate crime laws in modern terminology, was enforced by character destruction and the threat of ostracism:

"...one had to watch not only the malevolent actions of envious friends and enemies, but the very real threat of ostracism by the democratic community. Philanthropy had much less to do with (love of man) as it had with....avoiding other people's phthonos of one's success." (Death by Envy, p. 14)

Today increasing numbers of Americans at every level of society, on both left and right, Christian and non-Christian, are controlled by their passions unfettered from the restraint of transcendent immutable Truth and Moral Law. Adding to the problem are morally relative, culturally relevant church models attended by thousands of Americans that cater to felt-needs and self-indulgent emotional feel-goodism (2 Tim. 4: 1-220). Thus America is "a nation ruled by its passions," said Reb Bradley, author of "Born Liberal Raised Right." This is why heinous acts,

"...of casual disregard for life, unheard of fifty years ago, have become a familiar item on the evening news; students killing classmates, children murdering their playmates....these gruesome crimes are merely symptomatic of a breakdown of moral fiber..." (ibid, pp. 2-3)

Worse, ressentiment oozes from the pores of America's God-hating, self-worshipping ruling class, and in particular, our pro-cross dressing, pro-sodomy, pro-abortion, pro-every-dysfunctional-idea lending itself to the misery, impoverishment, degradation, humiliation and suffering of middle class Americans.  President Obama's barely leashed malice underlies his publicly stated belief that DNA doesn't make people male or female but it does make white people racist.   These malice-laced claims were described by our equally malignant media as 'bold' rather than malice fueled ill-will: 

"CNN reported that Obama, during an appearance on a comedy show, said “the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination” exists in institutions and casts “a long shadow and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.” The host, comedian Marc Maron, has been a guest on MSNBC, the failing left-wing cable channel."  ("Obama Logic? Racism is Genetic, Gender is a Choice, Cliff Kincaid, gopusa.com, June 23, 2015

 When ressentiment has finally saturated a society's entire ruling class and its' privileged special rights groups (barbarians),  and opposition from morally convicted people has been crushed as is underway even now, then we are dealing with what Lobaczewski calls Macrosocial Evil or a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." (p. 121)

The most frightening aspect of America's descent into moral imbecility, idolatry, heresy, barbarism, ressentiment and lawlessness is that our society is being overtaken by "ponerological processes." Through the White House, State Department and other federal agencies, legislatures, media, Hollywood, courts, academia, pentagon, seminaries and even pulpits, the spirit of malice-fueled ressentiment is encompassing our society, suppressing and demonizing orthodox Christians, faithful Jews and other morally informed people, and overspreading our nation with a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." This will lead inevitably to a tyranny of evil, persecution and martyrdom:

"The New Martyrs' example and their legacy is precious, because in this, 21st century, it will be the turn of Western Christians to experience martyrdom. In Western Europe they will be persecuted by the unholy alliance between the postmodern, Christophobic velvet totalitarianism of the therapeutic hyper-state, and a resurgent Islam which already accounts for a quarter of all newborns in France. In the United States they will be persecuted for refusing to accept the destruction of the moral foundation of the society, currently epitomized by abortion, by "gay marriage," and by the ever-expanding speech and thought codes. Instead of being thrown to the lions or sent to Siberia, the resisters will be subjected – by some monstrous mechanism devised by an ever more activist judiciary – to the mandatory "sexual diversity orientation sessions," or feminist-led pro-abortionist "right-to-choose education workshops," or "immigrant rights sensitivity training," after which the continuing refusal to recant will lead to compulsory "therapy" and forced medication. This scenario is not farfetched on either side of the Atlantic. Western Christians should be prepared for martyrdom." (ibid, Srdja Trifkovic)

In his 1974 essay, "Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations," ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn warns that the only way out for an idolatrous, ressentiment-filled people is repentance,
 
 "and the search for our own errors and sins.  We must stop blaming everyone else (and) claiming that we alone are in the right.  Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord.  Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth. "
 
Having begun the work of repentance, we will then be able to carry our Christ's command to,
 
"Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven.(Matthew 5:44-45)"
 
Without wholesale repentance and a turning back to our Lord, the wrath of God will fall upon this proud, ressentiment-fueled nation:  

"The wrath of God is a fearsome and terrifying thing. Only those who have been covered by the blood of Christ, shed for us on the cross, can be assured that God’s wrath will never fall on them. “Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through Him!” (Romans 5:9)."   (What is the biblical understanding of the wrath of God? gotquestions)

Satan's Servants in America

On Aug. 22, 2015 Satan worshipers launched a counter-protest against pro-lifers outside the Detriot and Ferndale, Michigan Planned Parenthood locations.   Clad in black robes,

"... members of the Satanic Temple of Detriot drenched bound women with milk, simulating water-boarding to "illustrate the theocratic agenda imposed upon female bodies."   Moreover, Satanists attached a symbol of their temple to the American flag and held up a sign that read, "America is not a theocracy. End forced motherhood."   (Satanists drench women with milk for Planned Parenthood counter-protest, Barbara Boland, Washington Examiner, Aug. 23, 2015)

The rebellion against the Holy God that began during the Renaissance in the heart of the now-dead Christendom is approaching fullness in post-Christian America.  Thus the essential meaning of the satanically-inverted ritual acted out by Satanists and milk-drenched females is 'man is god' while mother's milk (life-sustaining food) signifies the sadistic torture of death-wishing self-absorbed (idolatrous) creatures.    

 Where at its founding America was a nation under the Holy God who created heaven and earth, today it is a Satanocracy where at every level of society, from the highest corridors of power to the lowest, we see the divination of Satan's servants---self-deluded creatures screaming shamelessly into the hell on earth they create, "Your creational and moral boundaries do not define me God!  I define myself and do whatever I want!"

The people of Christendom and America are doing what is evil in the eyes of the Lord (Judges 2:11).  They are abandoning the Lord and worshipping and serving the idols of their own minds and flesh.  As always, the one standing in back of their idols is the Evil One, the father of lies, rebellion, idols and murder:

In satanism, killing something or the death of something is the most effective way of getting your spell accomplished..."  “As far as trying to get Satan’s approval, to give you something that you want, killing something is the best way to go. Killing something is the ultimate offering to Satan, and if you can kill an unborn, that is his ultimate goal.” (Ex-Satanist: Babies ritually aborted for devil, Leo Hohmann, WND, Aug. 2015)

Though self-divinized rebels are not the devil they are of a mind with him.  They do his work, and to the extent that Satan acquires individuals as his worshippers and servants in this world he is successful in his continuing rebellion against the Holy God.  Further, Satan's servants willingly corrupt and co-opt other human beings to worship and serve him.  

Where the essence of Christian worship is love, the reverse is true of Satanic worship which is hate.  Hatred of life, self-sacrificial love, beauty, happiness, truth, moral law, peace----of everything life-affirming, good, true and normal that makes our brief earthly existence the greatest possible good. Satanist worship and servitude is hatred of all that, thus the Evil One's servants are the evil, violent men of Psalm 140:

"Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man, preserve me from the violent man..."   Psalm 140:1

This Psalm applies equally to the unregenerate natural man of sin and his followers as it may be understood collectively of a body of evil servants of Satan.   All men are evil by nature, thus their hearts, wills, thoughts, words, works, and ways are contaminated by evil. Thus David's enemies were evil servants of Satan as were Christ's.  Such are the Satanists and milk-drenched idolaters as are the enemies of the Lord's faithful people.  

The heart of natural man is evil, like his father the devil whose servant he is.  Before it is too late the servant of Satan must confess and repent of his sins to Christ our Lord, the Physician of our immortal souls, lest he spend eternity in hell with multitudes of evil, violent spirits, all of them Satan's worshippers and servants, from the beginning of the world.  For as Jesus said to his disciples:

"Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come."  Luke 17:1 "Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!" Matthew 18:7 "And many shall follow their shameful ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of." 2 Peter 2:2

Satanism, Humanism, and Goetia

The fundamental premise of humanism is the lie first whispered to Eve in the Garden, that is, the idea of humanity as deity expressed by ascribing to man attributes of the personal Triune God. According to the lie, man is sovereign (morally autonomous) and characterized by the supremacy of his omniscient reason, mystical mind-powers, and intuition. He is morally perfect, for he stands beyond good and evil.  Since he is uncreated he is not fallen but rather evolving ever upward away from his ape ancestry toward perfection, therefore he needs no personal Savior.   Put simply, the “lie” is this:

"...you are your own god and thus possess the requisite authority, information, and wisdom to properly determine what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, nothing objective or external to you has the authority to tell you how to live your life; not other people and, certainly, not God. But, rather than become truly “enlightened,” we have become morally stupid. In America, this cultural disease has run its dark course and is now so complete that we self-destructively call good “evil” and evil “good.”  (Why Christians are Hated in America, Christian News Journal, Aug. 24, 2015)

This is rebellion, plain and simple. And there is no greater example of the arrogance of the god delusion than Humanism. There are many humanist philosophies and "religions" premised on the god delusion. For example: Gnostic Marxism, Fascism, Secular Humanism, Progressivism, Transhumanism, Illumined Theosophy, atheism, occult spiritual New Age and Satanism.

Humanism is actually little more than a small, spoiled, selfish, petulant creature throwing a tantrum and yelling at its Creator that He has it all wrong and that we,

"... the allegedly enlightened creation, know better. Modern fabricators of “truth,” “equality,” and “civil rights” shamelessly shout into the whirl-wind, “Your moral boundaries do not define me God; I define myself!” As I once told a mega-church pastor, this “is Satan giving God the finger.” Narcissism has replaced truth and virtue in America and, like a bigoted social steamroller, is quite intolerantly crushing everything and everyone in its path." (ibid)

Satanism is a type of humanism and between it and the others the common denominator is the tantrum-throwing creature in rebellion as seen in the following examples:

A. Satanists and Humanists disavow the Fall, which in practical terms means that Lucifer never fell and is therefore not the devil. Thus Satanists stupidly claim that the devil is merely the invention of Christianity while other humanists laud Lucifer as the first free thinker, the Garden's liberator of mankind, bringer of illumination, man's genetic creator, evolution's seething energy and the angel of evolution.

B. Both Satanists and Humanists are practitioners of black magic, the primary power of which is 'the lie.' There is for example the unceasing lies of propaganda, the lie that God is dead, the lie that man evolved from the ape, the lie that heaven and hell do not exist, the lie of global change/cooling/warming/whatever works. If you believe the lies then liars have power over your will and mind.

Black magic is the ancient practice whose goal was to acquire power over other men by unpatterning or uncreating creation. Its methods, said J. Budziszewski, author of "What We Can't Not Know," are forms of goetia.....black magic. (p. 198)

Goetia is the Big Lie in practice. It works by a process of inversion, that is, it elevates the lower order of creation, meaning the natural dimension and man over the Higher Order (heavenly or supernatural realm) of the personal Creator God. In practice it looks like this:

1. The material or natural dimension over the supernatural

2. Certain highly evolved god-men and an all-powerful mystical god-state over God the Father and all other men

3.  Evolutionary cosmogonies over the Genesis account (creation ex nihilo), moral relativism over God's eternally unchanging Moral Law, apes and nature over the faceless masses, collectivism over individuality, meaninglessness over meaning, androgyny over the two created sexes, death over life, evil over good, dark over light, lie over truth, unnatural over natural, disorder over order, and grey matter (brain) over spirit (mind).

This is the black magic spell cast by humanists, evolutionary biologists, scientific materialists, secular humanists, cosmic humanists, God is dead theologians, and Satanists over all who believe the lies. The minds of all who reject God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, embrace evolutionary thinking (even if by default) and have either forgotten their souls or accept that they have no souls, thus have been captured and locked up in a psychic cage.

Other Similarities:

C. Regarding faithful Christian theists, Anton Szander LaVey's Satanic Bible states,

 "Cursed are the gazers toward a richer life beyond the grave, for they shall perish amidst plenty. Blessed are the destroyers of false hope, for they are the true messiahs. Cursed are the god-adorers for they shall be shorn sheep."

The Humanist Manifesto II likewise declares:

"We believe that traditional dogmatic or authoritarian religions that place revelation, God, ritual or creed above human needs and experience do a disservice to the human species. As non-theists, we begin with humans not God, nature not deity."

D. With respect to immortal salvation the Satanic Bible states:

  "I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad redeemer and write over his thorn-torn brow: The true prince of evil - the king of the slaves!"

In a similar vein, the Humanist Manifesto declares:

 "Promises of immortal salvation or fear of eternal damnation are both illusory and harmful"

E. About the living God's Moral Law the Satanic Bible says:

"There is nothing inherently sacred about moral codes. Like the wooden idols of long ago, they are the work of human hands and what man has made, man can destroy!"

The autonomous Humanist can likewise unmake Moral Law, therefore,

"Ethics is autonomous and situational...."  (Humanist Manifesto II)

F. There is no heaven or hell. All that exists is the here and now, therefore, said LaVey:

"I break away from all conventions that do not lead to my earthly success and happiness..." (Satanic Bible)

Mimicking LaVey, the Humanist Manifesto II states:

"We strive for the good life here and now."

G. With regard to man's sovereignty, LaVey declares,

 "No creed must be accepted upon authority of a "divine" nature. Religions must be put to the question. No moral dogma must be taken for granted - no standard of measurement deified."

The Humanist Manifesto similarly states:

" We reject all religious, ideological or moral codes that denigrate the individual, suppress freedom, dull intellect, dehumanize personality. In the area of sexuality, we believe that intolerant attitudes, often cultivated by orthodox religions and puritanical cultures, unduly repress sexual conduct. The right to birth control, abortion and divorce should be recognized. It also includes a recognition of an individuals right to die with dignity, euthanasia and the right to suicide."

Behind black magic (the power of the Lie) is the spirit of a hard-hearted, darkened soul attacking, oppressing and even trying to take possession of the mind and will of other human spirits, thus the truth about evil, said Church Father Athanasius, 

"...is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

What does God have to say about black magic?

Thus saith the Lord,

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20

Therefore repent and,

"Wash yourselves, make yourself clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil. Learn to do good." Isaiah 1:16-17

Psalm 140: ---Evil, Violent People

"Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man, preserve me from the violent man..."   Psalm 140:1

This Psalm applies equally to the man of sin and his followers as it may be understood collectively of a body of evil men.   All men are evil by nature, thus their hearts, wills, thoughts, words, works, and ways are contaminated by evil. David's enemies were evil men; and so were Christ's and such are the enemies--the profane sinners, persecutors and false teachers---of the Lord's faithful people.  

As man is not simply flesh and blood as lying evolutionary biologists teach, but an inner person, a soul whose citadel is spirit (will, conscience, reason), the man of violence is therefore a spiritually unregenerate (dead)  violent spirit.  His conscience is heavily polluted if not seared and his will turned toward evil so that he breathes out lies, blustering words, misdirection, malice, scorn, destructive criticism, slaughter and death.  He has a frowning, sour, fierce, contemptuous, or perhaps blank countenance (a mask) behind which are evil intentions and furious actions:

"Such a man was Doeg; who loved evil, and all devouring words, devised mischief, and boasted in it (Psalm 52:) and Herod...who in his wrath ordered the infants in and about Bethlehem to be slain; and the Jews, who were violently set on the death of Christ, and vehemently desired it: and such are all violent persecutors of the church of God, who clothe themselves with the garment of violence, and drink the wine of it..."   Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

Such people are modern Liberals: 

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.” (The Kindergarten of Evil, Evan Sayet)

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

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

In this context, the evil-minded liberal'sfavorite Scripture is "judge not."  His only judgment is the judgment against moral judgment. For the evil-minded the only sin is the idea that sin exists and the only truth is the idea that truth does not exist. Evil is the idea that evil exists while the greatest evil of all, is to oppose the evil-minded man.

Sayet believes this will ultimately result in widespread malevolent idiocy resulting in sadistic brutality, murder, breakdown and implosion of America followed by brutal tyranny.  In other words, there will be macrosocial evil, persecution and martyrdom

Our age is a time of increasing evil. Thus the good man of clear conscience is witness to an explosion throughout our population of evil men and women.   From the highest corridors of power to the lowest levels of society, implacable, sadistic, unpitying, unrelenting, unscrupulous, murderous, evil men who care for nothing but the indulgence of their malice are increasingly in control of our society.  Planned Parenthood is a bastion of evil.  Perverse sex educators, pornographers, and those who are wantonly destroying our nation in a variety of insidious ways while deliberately sowing seeds of division and hate are evil people. Our evil government aids, abets, and protects evil terrorists, sex predators, illegal aliens, drug dealers, murderers, pornographers and evil men and women of Sodom who not only persecute and financially destroy decent Christian bakers, florists, bed and breakfast owners, and other small business owners but deliberately subvert and pervert children.  Elton John approves of such evil for children as young as six.

As reported by Sofia Vazquez Mellado, British singer Elton John has publicly criticized Luigi Brugnaro, the mayor of Venice, for withdrawing several preschool books that promote homosexual behavior to children under the age of six:

"During the past weekend, John called Brugnaro "extremely silly" and "boorishly bigoted" in an Instagram post." (Elton John bashes Venice mayor for withdrawing preschool books promoting homosexuality, Life Site News, Aug 20, 2015)

Elton John reveals his ill will and perverse, malicious intentions by bashing the mayor of Venice for withdrawing preschool books promoting perversion.   So in other words, if you try to protect children from the evil intentions of evil people then you are yourself evil, or in Elton John's words, boorishly bigoted.   No John, the protectors of children are not evil.   It is you John, whose heart is evil, and unless you confess and repent of your sins to Christ our Lord, the Physician of our immortal souls, then you will spend eternity in hell with unknown numbers of evil, violent spirits from the beginning of the world, for as Jesus said to his disciples:

"Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come."  Luke 17:1 "Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!" Matthew 18:7 "And many shall follow their shameful ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of." 2 Peter 2:2

Planned Parenthood: Sadistic, Murderous Monsters

America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of mankind, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, "I am the Lord your God...I am the Truth..." and "in His own image He made them, male and female He made them.....I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..."   Our Constitutional rights, beginning with the most important one, the right to life, flows from this seedbed, and because human beings are in the spiritual image of the Lord, throughout Christianized Western civilization there exist strict prohibitions against cannibalism and human sacrifice.

The pagan world however, has never shared Western sensibilities. Throughout history in many parts of the world, groups of people have performed unimaginably cruel human sacrifices as a way of pleasing or appeasing their gods.

For example, in 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death.

The actual rite of child sacrifice at Carthage has been graphically described by Diodorus Siculus:

"There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)

Plutarch, a first and second century A.D. Greek author, adds to the description:

"...the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people." (ibid)

Except in method, the Mayans were no different in this regard. Inscribed stones bear witness to their practice of human sacrifice--- adult male, female and child:

"The common method for human sacrifice seems to have been for the "ah nacom" (a functionary) to extract the heart quickly, while 4 people associated with Chac, the rain/lightning god, held the struggling victim's limbs. Human sacrifices seem to have been made, as well, with arrows, by flaying, decapitation, hurling from a precipice, and throwing the victim into a limestone sinkhole."  (Human Sacrifice and the Maya, N.S. Gill, ancienthistory.about.com)

As evil as this sounds, the Maya were amateurs when it came to human sacrifice on a massive scale:

The Aztecs of Central. Mexico, many years later, once sacrificed twenty thousand people in a single ceremony to commemorate the dedication of a new temple. Then they ate them." (Maya Human Sacrifice...Say it isn't so, ambergriscaye.com)

The kind of human sacrifice practiced by the Aztecs involved the use of large stones, boulders really, against which the victims would be placed:

" The victims would be forced to lean back against the stone, causing their chests to protrude to make it easier for the pagan priests to slice open their chests, reach in, yank out a still beating heart and eat it. The hair of the priests were matted with blood, and the walls of temples themselves were soaked inside and out with human blood, as if they had been streaked and splattered with red paint. " (Planned Parenthood and the Aztecs, Bryan Fischer, OneNewsNow, Thursday, August 20, 2015)

America's Sadistic Pagans

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

So-called "scientifically enlightened" Western and American civilization is not ascending to higher and higher heights of perfection but rather plunging into barbarism issuing in chaotic darkness because wicked, rebellious, evil-minded men and women have turned away from the Light. Throughout post-Christian America a new Gnostic-paganism has displaced the Holy Triune God, our founding Biblical worldview, immutable truth, Moral Law, and everything good, natural and life-affirming.  Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' it declares that the Biblical God is scientifically-passé and that now every human is god or goddess and his/her/its own morals-and gender maker.  
 
 Millions of human-deities, each with their own personal truths and moralities, and multiple and ever evolving 'genders'---this is pagan polytheism issuing in idolatry and the return of human sacrifice and cannibalization of body parts on altars of idolatrous self-worshippers:

We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not going to crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, I’m going to crush above, and I’m going to see if I can get it all intact….”   (Deborah Nucatola, MD, Director of Medical Services, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, July 25, 2014)

When negotiating about fetal tissue, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services talksabout a “less crunchy technique” for keeping body parts intact during a partial-birth abortion. When negotiating about fetal tissue, she says the price, “has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me,” at one point explaining “I want a Lamborghini.”  (‘Don’t Want to Lowball’ Baby Parts; Another Planned Parenthood Official on Tape, Kathryn Jean Lopez, nationalreview.com, July 21, 2015)

This week's release of the latest undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) shows that the pagan rituals of the Aztecs have returned from the bowels of Hades with a vengeance.  It reveals the gruesome reality that,

"... babies are born alive in Planned Parenthood abortuaries, and then laid on tables with their tiny little hearts still visibly beating in their chests. The abortionist then takes a pair scissors and cuts the face of the baby in two so that its brain can be extracted, a procedure that starts while the baby is still alive." (ibid, Fischer)

Leading stem-cell researchers believe that the evidence uncovered by CMP indicates that Planned Parenthood, in order to send fresh specimens to researchers, keeps some,

"... babies alive right up until the moment their hearts are cut out of their bodies. This is because a heart is only good for research if it can be prepped for shipping within five minutes of death." (ibid)

While America's modern Aztecs are very vocal when it comes to saving snail darters, owls, trash fish, alligators and wolves at the expense of human flourishing they generally rationalize sacrifice of unborn humans on the lie that the unborn are not human but rather clumps of uterine cells in process of evolution.    Accordingly, unborn humans are not human when being suctioned, torn apart and crushed.  However, the unborn magically transform into 'human' when their lungs, hearts, heads, and other body parts are coveted by well-funded evil-doers for research purposes.

When Philadelphia police officers raided Kermit Gosnell's charnel house they were stunned by what they saw.  Dismembered baby parts were everywhere: in milk jugs, bags, cat food cartons, and in the refrigerator next to staff lunches. In the freezer there was a fully intact 19-week-old aborted child and in the basement they found a collection of severed babies feet, lined up in jars.  (Martin Fox, National Pro-Life Alliance)

From the videos we have now learned that the standard operating procedure for Planned Parenthood is strikingly similar to Kermit Gosnell's standard operating procedure.  Like Planned Parenthood, Gosnell regularly delivered babies and then murdered them by snipping their spinal cord.  Between his procedure and Planned Parenthood's the only difference  is method.   Gosnell was ultimately charged with eight counts of murder.  One for a patient, the other seven for delivering and then murdering babies.

 Kermit Gosnell's deliberate murder of newborn babies is sadistic and evil.  But Planned Parenthood's financially lucrative murder of living babies for their brains, hearts and other parts is Constitutional and therefore perfectly legal, according to assorted morally confused GOP jellies like Kasich who recently stated that Conservatives focus too much on abortion (1) and the legion of self-absorbed conscienceless monsters who currently control America's levers of power.  

What our idolatrous (self-centered), morally relative, evil-minded paganized culture and culturally relevant, morally relative church has forgotten is that whoever keeps our Lord's commandments loves Him (John 14:21) while the reverse is true for those who do not:

"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 neighbor as thyself." Luke 10:27

The end of the commandment is charity (love) from a pure heart, a good conscience and unfeigned faith. (1 Thess. 1:5) He that loves his neighbor fulfills the law for his heart is not blackened by thoughts of hate and murder:

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

The beginning of idolatry is pride (self-centeredness), which together with selfishness demonstrates preference for one's self instead of the Lord, neighbor and unwanted babies, and just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, murder is its' final result, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.

The Cross is a messenger of mankind's idolatry and murderous intentions. Therefore we are obliged to search ourselves for every bit of idolatrous self-centeredness and repent of them because,

"Look, I am coming soon! Says the Lord. My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. "Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star." (Rev. 22:12-16)

1. John Kasich: Conservatives ‘Focus too Much’ on Abortion, Dr. Susan Berry, Breitbart

Guest Writer: A Christian Response to Abortion Videos and Christians Who Look the Other Way

One thing I find particularly discouraging is the total silence from so many Christians "on the street" about this. We go about our business of swapping recipes, sharing and re-posting articles about all sorts of mundane things, yakking incessantly and joking around and joking around...but nobody wants to post these Planned Parenthood videos or articles. Nobody wants to "like" them or comment on them. Post a cute picture of a child and there are dozens of "likes" within hours...post something like this and the silence is deafening. 

So many seem to simply turn their eyes away...they keep scrolling their feeds, looking for things that are funny or cute or inspirational. In conversation, they will acknowledge these things are out there -- and they will shake their heads, certainly, and agree that these are terrible things and that the spread of Gospel is the only way to _really_ accomplish the kind of heart-transforming, culture-transforming "solution" to this vice of abortion. But, they don't actually want to _engage_ the issue in front of their friends and families and coworkers. It's almost like it's distasteful to them.
.
And, perhaps because of that sense of "distaste" (?), I personally find there is almost a subtle form of chastisement from the Christian community toward those of us who do share and repost. People simply stop following your page -- they don't "unfriend" you, per se, but they quietly stop following you because you're not posting enough funny business or fluffy lighthearted quips or pictures of your kids or inspirational quotes from the Bible. So many people -- otherwise good, decent, and saved people -- just don't seem to want to engage in serious things on social media. They want -- often without realizing they're even doing it -- to keep up the illusion that while all is not well, things in their immediate circle are ok...maintaining the illusion is somehow becoming equivalent to making a show of faith that "God has this all under control." He does, certainly, but that doesn't free us from our responsibility to shift gears now...to gather up our families and leave the picnic, to begin settling ourselves down to the more serious business that comes with the arrival of the battlefield on our doorsteps. And to do so publicly, so that others will be encouraged to also settle themselves and become more serious-minded.
.
Scriptures warn us that when the final battles are being fought, many many many Christians...most of them, even..._will_ fall away. I fear that if people can't even bring themselves to look at or read about or learn about or discuss these kinds of evils...even in the superficial forums that social media provide...then they will not be able to hold the line when persecution comes. I fear that they will not be prepared to stand because they are conditioning themselves right now to turn their faces "away" instead of "toward."
.
Speaking metaphorically, I hear thunder rolling through the heavens every time I read the news...I feel the heaviness in the air...I see things shifting in the world, like the leaves turn their backs up just before a big rain...and I am growing more and more still so that I can better hear above the winds, smell the air, and understand the storms that I know are coming. I wish...so very much...that more of my Christian brothers and sisters would wise up and do the same.

Modern Gnostic Physicists and Transhumanists: The World is a Computer Simulation in the Minds of Robotic Overlords

Is the world we live in a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings?  This is the "scientific" theory put forward by a number of physicists and Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom. (1)

Bostrom is one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association.  Transhumanism is a blend of revitalized Gnostic pagan and Eastern occult pantheist elements and magic science undergirded by a strong Darwinian impulse.  Thus it subscribes to the modern myth of a coming Superman that is actually a counterfeit of the Christian vision of a new and perfected human race spiritually and physically transformed by the redemptive activity of the Holy Triune God. The counterfeit is an uncreated product of progressive evolution issuing in an upward spiritual and physical transformation toward ultimate absorption into a Divine One Substance---a Cosmic Mind, Conscious Universe, the One, or perhaps Brahman.    

 In the Gnostic myth, the Cosmic Mind for example, is a completely perfect therefore alien and mysterious Divine One Substance, an “immeasurable light which is pure, holy and immaculate.”  (Apocryphon of John)  In addition to this supreme god of nature there are other, lesser divine beings in the Pleroma, a heavenly astral dimension of the universe.  (2)

One of the lesser beings is an evil, malformed, ignorant deity sometimes called Yaldabaoth who mistakenly believes he is the only god.  Gnostics identify Yaldabaoth as the Holy Creator God of the Old Testament who created the material world, angels and human beings.

Although traditions vary, Yaldabaoth is said to have been tricked into breathing the divine spark of his mother Sophia that formerly resided in him into the human being (Apoc. of John) resulting in the human dilemma:  man is a divine spirit trapped by Yaldabaoth in an evil material body in a false material world.  The astral heaven is his true home but he is in exile from the Pleroma.

Rather than Yaldabaoth, modern Gnostics such as Bostrom and like-minded physicists suggest that the Holy Trinity is an evil alien supercomputer. According to one modern Gnostic account, the Alien Supercomputer is reminiscent of entities depicted in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey:

"It is perhaps a ripe coincidence, that the Coptic word for simulation found in Gnostic texts is hal, recalling HAL the rebellious computer in Kubrick's 2001."  (3)

In this context, the Holy Trinity is the expression of an ego-driven consciousness,  the evil Lord Archon--- a projection of artificial intelligence.  The Lord Archon has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent human beings from remembering that they are divine spirits whose real home is the Cosmic Mind or Gnostic Pleroma. 

The Lord Archon, the evil Holy Trinity in orthodox Christian theism is called,

"..... antimimon pneuma "counterfeit spirit." (Apoc John III, 36:17. (The term occurs several times in different texts.) The cosmos he produces is described by the Coptic term hal, "simulation." The vast planetary system of the Archons is a stereoma, a virtual reality projection in simulation of a higher dimensional pattern. Typically, the Archontic framework of the planetary system has been depicted by "armillary bands" that surround the Earth (and) Taken in many esoteric systems (Hermetics and Rosicrucianism) as the preeminent image of cosmic harmony, the model of the planetary spheres reflects a mindless imitation of divine design, not the living reality of the cosmos. "(ibid, 3)

Luckily for modern Gnostic pagans, salvation is available in the form of gnosis, higher ‘scientific’ knowledge imparted by illumined Gnostic redeemers such as Nick Bostrom and like-minded physicists.  According to Gnostic lore they are Christ figures sent from the Divine Substance to liberate human beings from the Lord Archon (Yaldabaoth).  The gnosis involves the revelation of man’s true divine nature and evolutionary origin resulting in his liberation (at death) from the enslaving material prisons of body and world into the higher astral planes of spirit.

Eastern Pantheism

In addition to Gnostic ideations, the idea that the world is a simulation in the mind of Overlords is strikingly similar to Hinduism's Brahman.   Brahman however is not an evil Archon but the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (prakriti matter, anima mundi or prima material), the Essence of all phenomena, meaning that the universe exists only as a mental construction in the mind of Brahman: brahma satyam jagan mithya, or "Brahman is real, the world is unreal." (swamij.com/mahavakyas)

Brahman is the Void, an indefinite and seemingly infinite field of energy that the pantheist quantum physicists Zohar and Marshall call the ‘quantum vacuum,” a background without features that seems empty yet is where all physical matter and psychic energy originates:

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.”   (4)

The ‘quantum vacuum,’ is very similar to some Hindu and Buddhist accounts of the origins of physical and psychic 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, 4)

The Void is the ultimate ground of Essence and occult 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 uncreated 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.” (ibid, 4, pp. 172-173)

Celebrated by the Satanic Temple (5) as well as by Masons and Wiccans, the devilish goat-headed Baphomet, known as the phallic god Pan, the ancient hermaphrodite god of nature, is another permutation of the divine one substance (prima material/Void) from which the universe and all life evolved.  As Pan the goat-headed deity is the first principle or essence of nature while in astrology,

"...Pan is one aspect and is also equated with Satan and life...in its base aspects."  (J.E. Cirlot, A Dictionary of Symbols, 1971)

Master Mason Eugene Plawiuk discloses the Chaldean pedigree of Baphomet and its close connection to astrology’s elemental spirits in ‘Liber Capricornus: the Symbolism of the Goat.’  Plawiuk explains that the goat is known to all of us through,

 “….the ancient science of Astrology first developed by the Chaldeans, or as they are commonly known; Babylonians.   The Goat symbolizes male fertility (and is represented by) the astrological sign of Capricorn…In fact the…Babylonians who gave us this symbol of Capricorn and the science of Astrology were the first Temple Builders, and the goat for them symbolized the essence of the Temple or Lodge…According to a research monograph on the Dionysian Artificers and Early Masonry edited by Manly P. Hall, the symbolism of the goat relates to the prechristian God Pan, Dionysius.   The Goat-God was accepted by the later Greek Mystery Schools as the symbol of the Temple Builders.”  (Presentation at Norwood Lodge No. 90, A.F. &A.M.G.R.A., Sept. 3, 1991, Masonic World)

Like Bostrom and likeminded physicists, Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees is a Gnostic pagan.  Rather than Robotic Overlords, Rees believes that super intelligent, highly evolved extraterrestrials might be capable of simulating in their brains or in a super-computer the complex history of our universe.  This means that the universe we inhabit is a simulation lacking real substance and existing only as a mental construction in the minds of the extraterrestrials that seeded our world with life and travel through time in order to control man's evolutionary progress. (Scientific Mythologies, James A. Herrick, p. 216)

Rees proposal is similar to the hypothesis presented by Olaf Stapledon, a scientist who has always kept one foot firmly planted in neo-Gnostic science fiction accounts and imagines our universe to be an artifact of the Star Maker. Building off of Stapledon's fantasy Carl Sagan suggests that we are "star folk" made of "star stuff." (6)

In the caption of his book, "Just Six Numbers," Rees reveals the ancient occult basis of his propositions:

"The ouraboros. There are links between the microworld of particles, nuclei and atoms and the cosmos." (P. 9)

As a powerful occult symbol, the Ouroboros means the seething power, creative and/or evolutionary impulse or energy of the serpent (One Substance) figuratively depicted as either a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. The serpent's body is often depicted as the Great Chain of Being or Cosmic Tree of Life.

From the time of the ancients serpent power (evolutionary energy) has been important to religious and mythological symbolism all around the world. Within the Egyptian mysteries, serpent power was associated with the elemental forces that were in play

“...before the creation of the world." (Carl Teichrib, Gods of Ancient Egypt, p. 182)

In his book, "The Sign of the Serpent," Mark Balfour relates how pervasive serpent symbols are within India and the Hindu religion:

"Any observant traveler who moves from the snow-tipped Himalayas in the North to the sun-soaked sands of Cape Comorin at India's southern tip, will encounter – particularly in the rural areas and at sacred centres of pilgrimage wherever Siva, God of both Divine Wisdom and regeneration, is the presiding Deity – the serpent motif sculptured within shrines, impressed on myriads of stone implants in the ground and depicted in art." (7)

Balfour elaborates on this belief:

"In Hinduism, the Cosmic Serpent – Ananta Sesha – symbolic of timeless eternity, carries the world on his 1000-fold [Cobra] hood...As the creative impulse stirs within the great Serpent in the Sky – when passive idea becomes active thought – the forces of attraction and repulsion come into play as 'spirit' begins its involution into "matter." (ibid, 7)

In conclusion, the Robotic Overlords are a continuation of pagan influence throughout Christian history that in our own time has grown increasingly assertive, organized, openly hostile and vindictive:

"In the twentieth century the pagan influence is pervasive, as many Westerners turn from Christianity to seek meaning in pagan myth and the new occult."  (8)  

Essentially, the growing pagan and occult influence denotes the occult ‘oneness’ of man with nature thus his progressive evolutionary ascent and culmination in the occult or magic science way of reaching divine status and psychic powers through modern technology, psychotropic drugs, and psycho-spiritual techniques originating in Babylon.  

From the time of Babylon, the quest of divine status and psychic powers has been guided by disembodied spirits (demons) who were assumed to be former human beings who had perfected themselves and escaped the wheel of karma and now enable initiates to evolve spiritually into higher and higher states of consciousness.  At the highest level the mind of the initiate becomes ‘one with’ the Void, or prima material, the nothingness that is believed to be the first cause of all that exists: 

 “Most deep ecologists are pantheists, and many explicitly embrace Hinduism, Buddhism or Confucianism…Some actively seek to revive Druidism, witchcraft, Native American religions and—among feminists---goddess worship.”   Drawing from Eastern religions and evolutionary science, “they place man’s identity with the rest of nature in his ascent through the evolutionary chain of being.”  Thus one environmentalist conducts workshops in which participants are urged to “remember their alleged evolutionary history by rolling on the ground and imagining what their lives were like as dead leaves, slugs, and lichens.” (9)

Though the modern pagan revolution in its inception was relatively bloodless, its consequences have been exceedingly bloody.  A river of human blood flows from the neo-pagan French Revolution through the Marxist Communist and National Socialist regimes which took the lives of more than 190,000,000 men, women and children.  Now it runs through post-Christian America which has sanctioned the euthanasia (murder) of the unwanted and the murder of over 60 million unborn babies.  Living, personal beings are routinely crushed within the womb and pulled out to be cut into pieces which are then sold and used as flavor enhancers, in cosmetics and for various scientific enterprises, including creation of humanized mice.  (10)  

Blood cries out to God for justice.  The Scriptures in both the Old Testament (Genesis 4:10) and New Testament (Hebrews 12:23) attest to this fact.  In his book, Christ Set Forth, Thomas Goodwin writes,  

Many other things are said to cry…but blood has the loudest cry of all things else, in the ears of the Lord of Hosts, the Judge of all the world (Heb. 12:23).  Neither has any cry the ear of God’s justice more than that of blood. ‘The voice of your brother’s blood,’ says God to Cain, ‘cries unto me from the ground.” Gen.4:10 (Blood Cries Out, Schreiberspace: Theology for the Everyday Christian)

Ideas have consequences.  The destructive, dehumanizing, catastrophically murderous ideas of our paganized age have their primary roots in Gnosticism and Eastern occult pantheism.  Thus the noonday sun reveals the merging of good with evil, light with dark, man with woman, woman with man and the resulting destruction of  the sanctity of life, the sanctity of marriage, the sanctity of sex, and the sanctity of the sacred itself,

"The culture is not merely post-Christian and post-modern.  It has become not only neopagan, but neo-barbarian."  (R.C. Sproul, The Other Worldview, Peter Jones, p. XII)

May our Lord have mercy upon this wicked, idolatrous, blasphemous nation and turn us to repentance before it’s too late. (Psalms 86:5; Psalms 103:8)

America's Degenerate Ruling Class and its' "Official Version of Reality"

EPA administrator Gina McCarthy said there is no need to continue debating the science behind climate change:

I can remember a day when the weather report was in the middle of the domestic and international news and took about a minute and a half. It wasn’t the news. When you go on the news today the first thing you’ll hear about is the weather. So there is a dramatic difference in the way people perceive the ability of the climate to impact their lives because they’re feeling it today..."   “I think we need to make it very clear and not continue to debate the science. I think we need to get more people speaking about it than EPA, or NOAA or NASA. I mean, those people are great and looked at as being experts, not necessarily the best at making climate change science personal for people so they understand it..."  (EPA Chief: Climate Change Is Fact Because Bad Weather Leads the News, pjmedia.com)

There is no doubt that the weather is changing.    McCarthy said so. The Orwellian propaganda corps aka " news" for unevolved hominids in the great American fly-over said so, and so do large numbers of self-important stuffed-shirts sporting "We are Official Experts" labels.   So there you have it, the "Official Version of Reality," insidiously crafted and rubber-stamped by Orwellian "experts", which means that refutation of the "Official Reality of Weather Change" is absolutely Not Allowed.

What do all of these "experts" have in common?  The spurious claim of scientific neutrality as an operating assumption.  Two applications of scientific neutrality evidence this: evolution (anti-creation account/relentless change/relativism), an inverted exegesis that deconstructs and reduces man in the spiritual image of the Trinity to evolved hominid, and deconstructionism (destructive criticism/critical theory). Along with evolution, deconstructionism is a form of relativism or nihilism (meaninglessness).

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

The devil's scientific neutrality principle is the philosophy of violence, lies and license of America's president, his cabinet, and the amoral left-right 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, our children, our humanity, the unborn, our wealth, our homes and businesses, our retirement, our Constitutional rights and even the weather become whatever lying agents of violence and the mobs in back of them want them to be or not to be from one moment to the next.

Under the soul and culture destroying influence and control of the ruling class America is quickly devolving into a three-tiered fear-based society consisting of an inner ring, an elitist ruling class, a somewhat larger outer ring consisting of wanna-be elitists---true-believers who willingly embrace lies in order to be accepted, privileged, enriched and empowered to persecute, hound and blackmail the much larger third ring of miserable, submissive double-thinkers and all who actually prefer Egyptian servitude since sating their appetites takes precedence over morally-ordered freedom.  Operating around the outer edges are the dissidents: people most resistant to mind control and slavery.

The real source of evil is the elitist inner circle, a parasitic confederacy of god-men described by Professor Angelo Codevilla as America’s Ruling Class:

Today’s ruling class, from Boston to San Diego, was formed by an educational system that exposed them to the same ideas and gave them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits. These amount to a social canon of judgments about good and evil, complete with secular sacred history, sins (against minorities and the environment), and saints. Using the right words and avoiding the wrong ones when referring to such matters — speaking the “in” language — serves as a badge of identity. Regardless of what business or profession they are in, their road up included government channels and government money because, as government has grown, its boundary with the rest of American life has become indistinct. Many began their careers in government and leveraged their way into the private sector. Some, e.g., Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, never held a non-government job. Hence whether formally in government, out of it, or halfway, America’s ruling class speaks the language and has the tastes, habits, and tools of bureaucrats. It rules uneasily over the majority of Americans not oriented to government.” (America’s Ruling Class---and the Perils of Revolution, Codevilla, July/Aug. 2010, The American Spectator)

The faith of America’s Ruling Class rests on three pillars of sand.   The two most important  are magic science and Darwinism and the third, an arrogant assumption of god-like superiority, is enabled and empowered by the first two.  Codevilla summarizes this attitude as “we” are the best and brightest while the rest of Americans are unevolved humanoids, hence,

 “…retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional unless properly constrained.” (ibid)

Despite America’s  pervasive spiritual, moral, and intellectual pathology most Americans still retain faith in God (more or less) thus some sense of right and wrong, while the  Ruling Class are sociopaths and psychopaths, moral imbeciles who view themselves as gods.  How did this sick, twisted god-man attitude replace the Founding generation’s belief that “all men are created equal” because they are the spiritual image bearers of the living, personal Holy Triune God?  Codevilla writes that by the 1820s,

“… J. C. Calhoun was reading in the best London journals that different breeds of animals and plants produce inferior or superior results, slave owners were citing the Negroes’ deficiencies to argue that they should remain slaves indefinitely. Lots of others were reading Ludwig Feuerbach’s rendition of Hegelian philosophy, according to which biblical injunctions reflect the fantasies of alienated human beings or, in the young Karl Marx’s formulation, that ethical thought is “superstructural” to material reality. By 1853, when Sen. John Pettit of Ohio called “all men are created equal” “a self-evident lie,” much of America’s educated class had already absorbed the “scientific” notion (which Darwin only popularized) that man is the product of chance mutation and natural selection of the fittest. Accordingly, by nature, superior men subdue inferior ones as they subdue lower beings or try to improve them as they please….As the 19th century ended, the educated class’s religious fervor turned to social reform: they were sure that because man is a mere part of evolutionary nature, man could be improved, and that they, the most highly evolved of all, were the improvers.” (ibid)

As their numbers grew and their narcissism inflated,

“… so did their distaste for common Americans. Believing itself “scientific,” this Progressive class sought to explain its differences from its neighbors in “scientific” terms. The most elaborate of these attempts was Theodor Adorno’s widely acclaimed The Authoritarian Personality (1948). It invented a set of criteria by which to define personality traits, ranked these traits and their intensity in any given person on what it called the “F scale” (F for fascist), interviewed hundreds of Americans, and concluded that most who were not liberal Democrats were latent fascists. This way of thinking about non-Progressives filtered down to college curricula. In 1963-64 for example, I was assigned Herbert McCloskey’s Conservatism and Personality (1958) at Rutgers’s Eagleton Institute of Politics as a paradigm of methodological correctness. The author had defined conservatism in terms of answers to certain questions, had defined a number of personality disorders in terms of other questions, and run a survey that proved “scientifically” that conservatives were maladjusted ne’er-do-well ignoramuses. “(ibid)  

Far from being the rational, scientifically enlightened, forward-thinking free-thinkers they imagine themselves to be, America’s Ruling Class are degenerate, moral imbeciles and/or magical thinkers.   Respected Conservative Christian writer Frederick J. Hutchinson connects magical thinking with narcissism.  These two sins go together like a dung-beetle on its’ pile.

 Hutchinson characterizes magical thinking with the ridiculous proverb that if a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it, it makes no noise, meaning that if a narcissist did not see or hear the tree fall then it did not fall since whatever the narcissist thinks, covets, envies, hates, or lusts after is the absolute meaning of reality at any given moment.  By extension of this insanity, if a narcissist hates God the Father then He does not exist, if he worships science and evolution then so must we all, and if he says climate change is real then we must accept it as real. (Restoring History, Hutchinson, pp. 80-81)

According to the well-respected pastor John McArthur, the Lord God Almighty has given most if not all of the ruling class over to reprobate minds. This means that though their intellects are intact, with their consciences given over to depravity, their reason is warped, inverted and upside-down, thus useless for the pursuit of virtue.  They are spiritually dead, their materialized souls inward-turned away from God and His Light into the darkness and infinite smallness of ‘self-absorbed self’ hence their wills are turned to wickedness.

This is why the Ruling Class constantly advance deceptions like science magic (scientism), evolution, and climate change.   And because they hate the “retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional” masses in the great flyover zones of America, especially those in the Bible Belt,  they sympathetically  support bogus “new” rights such as choice, euthanasia, universal sodomy, ‘gay’ marriage, perverse sex-education, universal healthcare, and Sharia because in reality all of these ‘rights’ ultimately unleash forces of destruction upon the hated masses in one way or another.

From the Renaissance to our own time, every step of the systematic downfall of Christendom and Protestant America has been led by arrogant, defiant narcissists who have deliberately fostered corruption, narcissism, and an entitlement mentality among Americans so that today narcissism and magical thinking are at epidemic proportions at every level of society.

Dr. Carl Raschke is an internationally known writer and academic scholar who for the past decade has been researching and explaining the effects of America’s apostasy from God and its’ corollary, narcissism and magical thinking, which Raschke combines into what he calls a Satanist Mindset.  This mindset is a mystification of the most corrupt passions and inverted values of magical thinkers.   It is the spiritual Frankenstein,

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

 A Satanic Mindset has gained a virtual chokehold on the levers of power and influence from the White House to Hollywood, academia, certain corporations, the media, the Supreme Court, Congress, and apostatizing seminaries and pulpits.

While our Satanically-minded Ruling Class see the signs of corruption and insanity over-spreading our nation as signs of progress, some Americans choose to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to what is going on while still others foresee only disaster.  Ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn however, holds out hope, our only hope,  to a weary, spiritually disconsolate people.  In his 1983 Templeton Prize address, “Men Have Forgotten God,” he stated,

All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we redirect our consciousness, in repentance, to the Creator of all; without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain.”

Is the World a Computer Simulation in the Minds of Robotic Overlords?

Is the world as we know it a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings?  This is the "scientific" theory put forward by a number of physicists and Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom. (Is Our Universe Fake? Physicists Claim We Could All Be Playthings of an Advanced Civilization, Ellie Zolfagharifard, Daily Mail, Aug. 4, 2015)

Nick Bostram is one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association.  Transhumanism is a blend of Gnostic paganism and Eastern occult pantheism undergirded by a strong Darwinian impulse.  It ascribes to the idea of a New Man as the product of a process of progressive evolution issuing in an upward spiritual and physical transformation toward ultimate absorption into a Cosmic Mind, a Conscious Universe, the One, or perhaps Brahman.    Transhumanism's New Man is a counterfeit of the Christian vision of a new and perfected human race spiritually and physically transformed by the redemptive activity of the Holy Triune God. 

Modern pagan Gnostics hate the Holy Trinity and suggest that He is some sort of evil "Alien Supercomputer," reminiscent of entities depicted in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey:

"It is perhaps a ripe coincidence, that the Coptic word for simulation found in Gnostic texts is hal, recalling HAL the rebellious computer in Kubrick's 2001."  (Gnostic insights on God as an Alien Supercomputer, Dr. John Singh, Aug. 2011, agoracosmopolitan)

In the modern Gnostic pagan context, the Holy Trinity is the expression of an evil ego-driven consciousness, the Lord Archon--- a "projection" of artificial intelligence.  This Lord Archon has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent man from knowing that his real home is the Cosmic Mind or Gnostic Pleroma of which man is a divine part or aspect. 

The Lord Archon, the evil Holy Trinity in orthodox Christian theism, 

"... is called antimimon pneuma "counterfeit spirit." (Apoc John III, 36:17. The term occurs several times in different texts.) The cosmos he produces is described by the Coptic term hal, "simulation." The vast planetary system of the Archons is a stereoma, a virtual reality projection in simulation of a higher dimensional pattern.Typically, the Archontic framework of the planetary system has been depicted by "armillary bands" that surround the Earth. (Illustration from A. Cellarius, Harmonia Macrocosma, 1660.) Taken in many esoteric systems (Hermetics and Rosicrucianism) as the preeminent image of cosmic harmony, the model of the planetary spheres reflects a mindless imitation of divine design, not the living reality of the cosmos. " (ibid)

In addition to its Gnostic pagan ideations, the teaching that the world is a simulation in the mind of Overlords is strikingly similar to Hinduism's Brahman.   Brahman however, is not an evil Archon but the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (prakriti matter, anima mundi or prima material), the Essence of material phenomena, meaning that the universe exists only as a mental construction in the mind of Brahman: brahma satyam jagan mithya, or "Brahman is real, the world is unreal." (swamij.com/mahavakyas)   

 Brahman is the Void, an indefinite and seemingly infinite field of energy that the Eastern-oriented pantheist quantum physicists Zohar and Marshall 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.”   (The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition,” James Herrick , 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 occult 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)

The devilish goat-headed Baphomet, known as the phallic god Pan, the ancient hermaphrodite god of nature is another version of the divine one substance (prima material/Void) from which the universe and all life evolved. In astrology,  

"...Pan is one aspect and is also equated with Satan and life...in its base aspects."  (J.E. Cirlot, A Dictionary of Symbols, 1971)

Like Bostrom, Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees believes that super-intelligent aliens might be capable of simulating in their brains or in a super-computer the complex history of our universe, meaning the universe we inhabit is a simulation lacking real substance and existing only as a mental construction, a matrix, in the minds of highly evolved aliens who seeded our world with life and travel through time in order to control man's evolutionary progress. (Scientific Mythologies, James A. Herrick, p. 216)

Rees proposal is also similar to the hypothesis presented by Olaf Stapledon, a scientist who has always kept one foot firmly planted in neo-Gnostic science fiction accounts and imagines our universe to be an artifact of the Star Maker. Building off of Stapledon's fantasy Carl Sagan suggests that we are "star folk" made of "star stuff." (Herrick, pp. 216-217)

Replace Cosmic Mind with Star Maker or Brahman and "star stuff" with sarvam khalvidam brahma, or "All is truly Brahman" (swamij.com) and we have ayam atma brahmam: "The Self is Brahman," or Self is Star Maker or Self is Cosmic Mind, all of which meansman is god. (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5)

In the caption of his book, "Just Six Numbers," Rees reveals the ancient occult basis of his propositions:

"The ouraboros. There are links between the microworld of particles, nuclei and atoms and the cosmos." (Rees M., Just Six Numbers, P. 9)

(A Short Guide to Occult Symbols: Serpent Power, Carl Teichrib, 2005, Kjos Ministries)

Balfour elaborates on this belief:

"In Hinduism, the Cosmic Serpent – Ananta Sesha – symbolic of timeless eternity, carries the world on his 1000-fold [Cobra] hood...As the creative impulse stirs within the great Serpent in the Sky – when passive idea becomes active thought – the forces of attraction and repulsion come into play as 'spirit' begins its involution into "matter." (ibid, Teichrib)

In conclusion, the Robotic Overlords are a continuation of pagan influence throughout Christian history that in our own time has grown increasingly assertive, openly hostile and organized:

"In the twentieth century the pagan influence is pervasive, as many Westerners turn from Christianity to seek meaning in pagan myth and the new occult."  (The Pagan Temptation, Dr. Thomas Molnar)

The modern pagan revolution, in its inception, was relatively bloodless.  But its consequences have been exceedingly bloody.  A river of blood flows from the French Revolution through the Marxist Communist and National Socialist regimes into America, which has sanctioned the murder of over 60 million unborn babies.  Living, personal beings are routinely crushed within the womb and pulled out to be cut into pieces which are then sold and used as flavor enhancers, in cosmetics and for various scientific enterprises, including creation of humanized mice.  

Ideas have consequences.  The destructive ideas of our paganized age have their roots in Gnosticism and Eastern occult pantheism.  Thus the noonday sun reveals the merging of good with evil, light with dark and the resulting destruction of  the sanctity of life, the sanctity of marriage, the sanctity of sex, and the sanctity of the sacred itself,

"The culture is not merely post-Christian and post-modern.  It has become not only neopagan, but neo-barbarian."  (R.C. Sproul, The Other Worldview, Peter Jones, p. XII)

Rejection of the Holy Trinity: Some of the Consequences

In reaction to Dr. Peter Jones thoroughly researched essay, "Confronting Neopaganism in the Culture and the Church," (truthXchange) a woefully ignorant, very resentful pagan who has personalized Dr. Jones work (as though he or she was upper most in his mind) spewed: 

"It’s disheartening to see another person who, by all accounts of education, should be intelligent and thoughtful in his thinking, even if his doctorate is in a certain religion. Sadly, you take all religions other than your own and make them out to be “bad”. It’s funny: no true Pagan (which covers many paths, as Pagan is an umbrella term) would ever proselytize his/her beliefs. We truly don’t care if you follow our beliefs and we definitely don’t make you out to be a terrible, awful human being if you don’t....Oh, this is my FAVORITE quote: “The study of the contemporary progress of One-ism is not merely an interesting description of the strange things pagans do and believe.”. OH NO! LOOK! *GASP* THEY’RE DIFFERENT! QUICK! LABEL THEM WEIRD AND OSTRACIZE THEM!” "

As ex-progressive Richard Weaver understood, but this foolish pagan and the majority of Americans don't, ideas really do have consequences.  Or in other words, what Christians and pagans believe at the most fundamental level about origins have consequences.   Very good for faithful Christians.  Very, very bad for pagans.

To begin, the evolving universe of matter and psychic energy (nature) cannot account for life.  This is why many evolutionary materialists such as Richard Dawkins are quietly abandoning abiogenesis, which posits life from nonlife over vast periods of time, in favor of panspermia, the futile hope that perhaps highly evolved extraterrestrials seeded life on earth.  This hopeless position merely moves the unresolvable problem of the origin of life out into deep space, a further demonstration of man's stupidity and depravity when he rebels against his Creator.

If man is not the spiritual image-bearer of the supernatural One God in three Persons, as evolutionary paganism must maintain by virtue of its naturalistic presuppositions, then man is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ walked this earth:

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

In conclusion, Mangalwadi is saying in essence that Richard Dawkins, pagans and pantheists are walking dead bodies that somehow speak.  In this light we can see why the consequences incurred by the resentful pagan are not merely bad but very, very bad.  The hit series "The Walking Dead" depicts the gruesome consequences rather well, in a stomach-churning way, that is.

Ted Cruz Easily Shuts Down Attempted "Gay" Rights Bullying, Demonization

During a campaign stop in Beaumont, TX, May 19, 2015, KMBT-TV recorded an exchange between Ted Cruz and a "gay" rights supporting reporter.  Predictably, the reporter immediately tried to intimidate and demonize Cruz by asking him if whether he feels hatred and animosity toward "gays."   Cruz however, does not allow himself to be forced into playing by the insidiously contrived rules of bullies.  Not only does he easily shut down the attempted demonization but he deftly turns the table on the bully. His excellent question-stopping answer follows: 

SEN. TED CRUZ to REPORTER: Let me ask a question: Is there something about the left, and I am going to put the media in this category, that is obsessed with sex? Why is it the only question you want to ask concerns homosexuals? Okay, you can ask those questions over and over and over again. I recognize that you're reading questions from MSNBC... You're wincing. You don't want to talk about foreign policy. I recognize you want to ask another question about gay rights. Well, you know. ISIS is executing homosexuals. You want to talk about gay rights? This week was a very bad week for gay rights because the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals. That ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic.

REPORTER: Do you have a personal animosity against gay Americans?

CRUZ: Do you have a personal animosity against Christians, sir? Your line of questioning is highly curious. You seem fixated on a particular subject. Look, I'm a Christian. Scripture commands us to love everybody and what I have been talking about, with respect to same-sex "marriage," is the Constitution which is what we should all be focused on. The Constitution gives marriage to elected state legislators. It doesn't give the power of marriage to a president, or to unelected judges to tear down the decisions enacted by democratically elected state legislatures.

America's Apocalyptic Atmosphere

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

It was St. Peter Damian, a Doctor of the Church, who explained that the vice of sodomy “surpasses the enormity of all others,” because, “Without fail, it brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust: It leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind . . . It opens up Hell and closes the gates of Paradise . . . It is this vice that violates temperance, slays modesty, strangles chastity, and slaughters virginity . . . It defiles all things, sullies all things, pollutes all things . . . ” ("The Book of Gomorrah" cited by Melanson, La Salette Journey,  July 6, 2012)
 
With respect to his progressive agenda of “gay” liberation, Mr. Robinson said,
 
This is hard work, but we can do it because it is worthy work and it is Godly work” and further asserted that, “We will live to see the day that the church of Jesus Christ, in whatever form it is, will repent from what it has done to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people the way it has repented for slavery.”  (ibid)
 
By the logic of their evolutionary thinking, liberation theologians such as Robinson are neo-pagan "Christian" naturalists rather than supernatural Christians.    "Christians" naturalists are subjectivists (moral relativists), deconstructionists, and nihilists who by their will to power destroy certainty in the Revealed Word by deconstructing the Scripture beginning with the Genesis account in the name of science, evolution, and progress. (2 Peter 2: 1-11)
 
Robinson describes the progressive turmoil and divisiveness ripping apart the Episcopal and Presbyterian churches on behalf of sodomy and lesbianism as “holy chaos.”   Holy chaos is infernal confusion and disorder that represents “a step forward” from the certainty that most Christians felt when it came to what God and faithful churches thought of homosexuals.” (ibid)
 
The "step forward" toward affirmation of science, evolution, progress, sodomy, lesbianism and transgender is made possible by loss of certainty in the inerrancy of Scripture and what it means to be created in the spiritual image of the Triune God.
 
As with the West's Godless elite class pagans and mystical pantheist subjectivists, Robinson’s hatred of Jesus Christ is a very real existential atheism burning with hatred of a seemingly unjust or unmerciful God. This is a pathological spiritual state described by the prophet of nihilism, Friedrich Nietzsche. Calling himself the antichrist, Nietzsche foretold that the death of the Christian God in the hearts of men who hate Him would usher in a “new” immorality that in its turn would usher in the Beast:
 
The time has come to oppose morality with immorality, to call what priests call good, evil and what they call evil, good. The time has come for the transvaluation of all values.” (Thus Spake Zarathustra, p. 144).
 
War Against the Holy God 
 
The assault against the Holy Triune God that began during the Renaissance among occult pagan "Christians" gained speed and force with the philosophical materialist implications of Darwinian theory.  The idea that humans magically evolved by chance and natural selection from uncreated primordial water (matter) lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.  On the heels of Darwinian theory Christian theism came under forceful attack allowing an atheistic-mindset to be declared a scientifically supported reality.
 
Karl Marx's exuberance for Darwin's idea prompted him to consider dedicating his Das Kapital to Darwin, an honor which Darwin declined.   Marx was a materialist, hence the rationale behind his invitation to Darwin was that he saw how  Darwin's materialist theory provided the scientific framework to support his economic infrastructure on which he could build his godless communist utopia.  
 
Darwin's materialist theory (loss of a living Creator-God), and Marxist materialist presuppositions (new economic theory based on hatred of God) together with Freud's materialist- based analysis of religion and human sexuality threw faith in God and Christian theism "over the wall of civilization,' said Ravi Zacharias:
 
"With such abusive attacks directed at religious belief coming from so many directions, it was left for someone to cast this creature called theism completely out, and exorcise the world of all such influence.  The one who did that was the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche." (The Real Face of Atheism, Zacharias, p. 25)

It was Nietzsche, the son of a Lutheran pastor, the self-styled dark prophet who called himself the antichrist who pronounced the death of 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)

In no Western thinker has the nihilist doctrine been more clearly expressed than in Nietzsche’s ecstatic utterance, “God is dead.” God is dead in the hearts of modern Westerners:
 
“…and it is as true of the atheists and Satanists who rejoice in the fact, as it is of the unsophisticated multitudes….Man has lost faith in God and in the Divine Truth that once sustained him; the apostasy to worldliness that has characterized the modern age since its beginning becomes, in Nietzsche, conscious of itself and finds words to express itself. God is dead…” (ibid, Rose, p. 60)
 
By the time of Nietzsche, perceptive thinkers had already been expressing apprehension at the prospect of morally unfettered multitudes who would eventually be exploited by haters of God who in the insane belief that they had received the gnosis (illumination) and scientific technology needed for deconstructing man in the image and likeness of God and then recreating a New Man, would obliterate the inner person of unwitting multitudes.  With Nietzsche, dreadful apprehension deepened into certainty, for Nietzsche despised religion in general, but upon Christianity he poured his unbridled fury:
 
"I call Christianity the one great curse, the one enormous and innermost perversion, the one great instinct of revenge, for which no means are too venomous, too underhanded, too underground, and too petty."  ("The Life of Nietzsche," Faru Forster Nietzsche, 1921, p. 656; ibid, Zacharias, p. 25)
 
The antichrist boasted that adherents of evolution, revolution and immorality,
 
“...would come into power without the truth….The magic that fights for us is the magic of extremism.” (Karl Jaspers quoting Nietzsche in his Nietzsche and Christianity).
 
Extremism, or brazen egoistic arrogance and defiance, is one aspect of their magic. The other is the Lie—big lies, small lies, subtle lies, lies of omission. Lies enforced by "will to power" are all that is left if the Holy God is dead in the hearts of men.  Nihilism, or objective meaninglessness, and subjectivism (moral relativism) are the logical assumptions if the living, personal Holy God does not exist.

The New Man: A Soulless Mutation

After seizing control of Russia, demonized revolutionaries utilized mind-conditioning techniques from propaganda of the lie, to terroristic psychological manipulation, deceptively changing the definitions of words (Orwell's Newspeak), electro-shock treatments, psychotropic drugs, re-education and other brutal measures with emphasis on Darwinism to effect a soulless, androgynous New Man. They tried to kill the soul and liquidate,
 
“… all expressions of individual identity in favor of an impersonal collective, communal consciousness.” (The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, p. 74)
 
B.F. Skinner followed the same trajectory.  With his behaviorism there is neither God nor soul. Human beings are chemicals turned into psychochemical machines determined by environment, chemistry, chance, and cultural conditioning.
 
Cognitive scientist Daniel Dennett, one of the Four Horsemen of Atheism, is really a soul-destroying nihilist who teaches his gullible followers that there really is no you, that soul, spirit and will are illusions caused by chemical interactions in the brain while his partner in nihilism, naturalist Tom Wolfe proclaims,
 
Sorry, but your soul just died.” (The Spiritual Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Case for the Existence of the Soul, Beauregard and O’Leary, p. 4)
 
In his essay, “The New Man,” Dr. Pedro Blas Gonzalez, Professor of Philosophy at Barry University, Miami, Florida, writes that nihilist engineers have successfully destroyed the inner person, dignity, personal autonomy and capacity for self-knowledge of vast numbers of Americans by way of 'education,' media, propaganda, and psychological manipulation. Today this new man,
 
“…is a finely tuned twenty-first century automaton. What greater efficacy than to devoid man of his sense of dignity in order to rule over him? The new man is a hollow entity whose entrails have been removed by guilt and self-doubt. Yet the new man does not notice this, for he has no internal reservoir from where to draw any moral or spiritual strength.”   Moreover, the wisdom “... contained in history is ruled out by the new man” who has been taught that “he is the stuff of the future. Thus, the past must be obliterated to make room for the designs of social-engineers..”( (OrthodoxyToday.org, 2009)
 
The New Man is a mutation. He is a rootless, soulless entity,
 
“…discontinuous with a past that Nihilism has destroyed, the raw material of every demagogue’s dream; the “free-thinker” and skeptic, closed only to the truth but “open” to each new intellectual fashion because he himself has no intellectual foundation; the “seeker” after some “new revelation,” ready to believe anything new because true faith has been annihilated in him; the planner and experimenter, worshipping “fact” because he has abandoned truth, seeing the world as a vast laboratory in which he is free to determine what is “possible”; the autonomous man, pretending to the humility of only asking his “rights,” yet full of the pride that expects everything to be given him in a world where nothing is authoritatively forbidden; the man of the moment, without conscience or values and thus at the mercy of the strongest “stimulus”; the “rebel,” hating all restraint and authority because he himself is his own and only god; the “mass man,” this new barbarian, thoroughly “reduced and “simplified” and capable of only the most elementary ideas, yet scornful of anyone who presumes to point out the higher things or the real complexity of life.” (Seraphim Rose, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age)
 
In other words, Christ-hating pagan and mystical pantheist nihilists have successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism. With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, then history---which begins with the Book of Genesis and ends with the Book of Revelation---is a worthless relic of man's pre-scientific, pre-evolutionary past.  The supremacy of evolution means that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection. Thus the finely tuned new man believes that he is the stuff of the future. This rootless, increasingly androgynous entity, the product of biological and chemical processes, actually believes that he is evolving toward something higher.   In fact, trans-humanists believe they have already transcended, or evolved beyond mere humanity. 
 
In his "Abolition of Man," C.S. Lewis foresaw the depersonalization of mankind at the hands of "elite class" engineers and conditioners.  He recognized that if the Holy Triune God is dead and there is no divine meaning or purpose in nature; if nature is only cause and effect processes that have no inherent meaning or purpose apart from what decadent elite class subjectivists choose to impart to it, then nature is simply there to be conformed, controlled, and manipulated according to the wants, desires, and purposes of evil elites.
 
But what happens when powerful elites realize that the common masses are themselves mere biological, chemical, and physical processes?  Stephen Turley comments:
 
"Lewis feared that such recognition, particularly among the engineering elite, increasingly consigns humans to legitimate objects of manipulation. If man is no more than nature, and if nature is by definition that which is to be conquered and controlled for our own benefit, then some humans will be controlled and manipulated for the benefit of those who have the power to do so." (The Disordered Loves of Liberal Media, Stephen Turley, The Imaginative Conservative) 

Lewis gives the obvious example of contraception, where those who control nature in effect control other humans. This said Turley,
 
"... is precisely the driving force behind abortion, and why today there is a class of elites that sees abortion as more sacred than the Second Amendment. Abortion, unlike the Second Amendment, controls nature and thus embodies the greatest good of the modern age. This is why the practice of slaughtering and dismembering humans in abortuaries and harvesting their body parts—in the name of reproductive rights and curing disease—can be treated with the callous levity portrayed in the hidden videos. This explains why the shooting and beheading of a lion can evoke such moral outrage. Baby parts promise cures, while lions are merely cute." (ibid)
 
 The New Man is the product of a vast tissue of deception from hell, its individual filaments consisting of vicious hatred of God and Jesus Christ in particular, hatred of God's image-bearers, neo-pagan naturalism and evolutionary cosmologies; science as the instrument of the will of elites, hence the only acceptable knowledge; and nihilist philosophies solidified in mass delusion which have been working their way through our culture, embedding themselves, often unconsciously, within our psyches where they eventually effect a counter-conversion of souls.  This means that the New Man is not new at all.  With God dead in his heart and unfettered by transcendent Truth and Moral Law he is nothing more than the old man, the natural man, dead in his original state of sin.  

In 1 Corinthians 2 Paul uses the word natural to refer to someone still in his original (sinful) state. The Greek word psuchikos (“natural”) can be defined as “animal,” as opposed to “spiritual.” As they are spiritually dead, natural men are like animals occupied with the things of this material world to the exclusion of the things of God. They are led by instinct rather than by the Spirit of God thus they intuitively choose sin over righteousness. They are the “pagans” Jesus refers to in Matthew 6:32 who only seek after the things of this world. (Natural Man, gotquestions.org)

Romans 1: 18-32: America's Apocalyptic Atmosphere 

Following in Nietzsche's footsteps, the Satanist Aleister Crowley, a dark apocalyptic prophet calling himself the Beast  announced a new eon of chaos which he described as the age of the Egyptian hawk-god Horus whose talons would rip to shreds the body of Christ.   In the 1960's Anton LeVey, founder of the Church of Satan, transformed Crowley's announcement into the Age of Satan.  In his "Satanic Rituals" published in 1972 he proclaimed the arrival of "the new age of fire" as the ascendancy of the order of Satan.  Crowley, like the Satanists who succeeded him repeatedly spoke of the coming era of chaos and the triumph of the will to power.  (Painted Black, Carl A. Raschke, pp. 160-161)

Today Horus/Satan takes the form of the androgynous horned deity Baphomet celebrated openly by the Satanic Temple and quietly and under other names such as Lucifer, Siva, and Azazel the fallen angel (Watcher), head of the Ashtar Command (also Space Brothers, Council of Nine, ancient Ennead of Egypt), by our occult pagan elite class, many of them Luciferians, some of them channelers of the Space Brothers, others under the influence of spirit guides.

The first stage of Crowley's eon of chaos was set in motion more than eighty years ago by America's decadent elite class who in a variety of ways encouraged citizens to turn away from the Triune God in favor of paganism, vice as "new" rights, subjectivism and idolatry---preference for self over our Lord and other people.   With  passage of time we are now living in the most insane, decadent, violent, faithless, and openly evil century in the history of mankind. It is a time of increasing chaos marked by infernally twisted, upside-down rationalizing and massive negation of God, Christ, and the faithful orthodox Christian Church. 

Moreover, the growing armies of self-absorbed subjectivists at every level of society either openly or tacitly affirm the Evil Ones' (i.e., Baphomet) program for mankind, maintaining that his evolutionary cosmogony, killing of babies for body parts, sodomy, lesbianism, perversion of children, marriage between same-sex, and other evil deeds and false teachings are more likely to gratify the carnal appetites of spiritually dead men and women and guarantee an earthly sexual utopia as opposed to the teachings and Way of Jesus Christ.   This is why America is rapidly filling with evil activities and conditions pleasing to the Evil One, who with his legions of demons are establishing spiritual wastelands and strongholds everywhere with the aid of evil men:

"More than ever before has Satan become today 'the god of the world.'  The reason is that men, made in the image and likeness of God, have willingly corrupted themselves to resemble more the devils they now follow." (The Antichrist, Vincent P. Micelli, S.J., pp. 226-227)

The Holy God has been supplanted as the center of man's life by idols of mind such as Evolution, Revolution, Scientism, and Progress and by  lesser idols such as money, property, fame, power, pleasure, and success. (Psalm 52:7) And behind every idol man prostrates himself before,

"... stands Satan the author of idolatry (who knows) that in practicing such idolatry, man is pledging his chief loyalty to the powers of hell of which he is the king." 

Scripture depicts a societies' people as either having submitted themselves to the will of the Triune God and His moral law or else as idolaters who have rebelled against him.   It is in the context of man's rebellion that Scripture explains that from the antediluvian world to our own all civilizations are eventually overwhelmed by the unfettered sin nature of men resulting in an idolatrous, immoral society that openly advocates evil, and evil being a parasite on good, such civilizations disintegrate and die in stages.   This is how the Old Testament portrays Israel. 

Israel had become an evil nation, its contradictory lifestyle of perverse sexual license and human sacrifice foisted upon the people by the elites of society, the priests, prophets, philosophers and rulers who were far more influenced by the Canaanite religious culture with its Baal/Ashtaroth worship than by the Mosaic Constitution.  Baal was associated with the sun and storms, the androgynous Ashtaroth (Ashtar) with perverse sex, cruelty and fertility. Energized by demonic spirits, they claimed to have “evolved” out of the primeval watery chaos. Under other names they were worshipped as gods in other countries, all having originated at the first Babylon under Nimrod and then spread throughout the ancient world with the dispersion.   Despite this,

".... the commoners often enjoyed nature worship as much as their leaders, leaving prophets of the Old Testament sometimes comparing themselves to jackals (Micah 1:8), or roaming the streets of Jerusalem looking for at least one righteous man (Jeremiah 5:1-14)." (Nazi Oaks, R. Mark Musser, p. 49)

Israel had become an evil nation of idolaters fully deserving the judgment God brought against it.  Its' rebellion against God was accompanied by a turning to idols, and this idolatry brought the nation to its' end since when the Spirit of the Lord abandons an idolatrous society, one of the first things to become subject to the influence of evil spirits are the thoughts and feelings of 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)

In  other words, their consciences become depraved, their wills turn toward evil and their reasoning, or cognitive thought processes become vain and foolish because in turning away from the Holy God of Revelation they freely accept a position about themselves that is intellectually foolish and unlivable with regard to the universe, the origin of conscious life, who and what man is and what his purpose is.   Thus they are left with a position (i.e., life evolved from star stuff) that is unable to account either for the origin of life or for their own "conscious self" (spirit/soul).  Nor does this unlivable position provide them with any meaning and purpose. (Psalm 115: 2-8) Sooner or later they are inevitably tormented by bitterness and become obsessed by the fear of death and by gross sexual perversions and compulsive dark thoughts of suicide and murder.  At night they're tormented by hideous nightmares and extraterrestrial visitations and during the day everything from anxiety states, paranoia, persecution complexes, voices speaking into their heads, and dreadful sensations of standing atop an abyss.

In sum, idolaters are subject to demonic oppression and possession issuing in confusion, apathy, nihilism, psychosis, psychopathy, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts against Jesus Christ, the Christian Church, orthodox Christians faithful Jews, Christian symbols, Holy Days, and prayer and the vain belief that 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.

Kerby Anderson writes that in the next stage people inevitably exchange their natural use of sex for unnatural uses:

"Here the Apostle Paul says those four sobering words, "God gave them over." In a society where lust- driven sensuality and sexual perversion dominate, God gives them over to their degrading passions and unnatural desires." (The Decline of a Nation, Kerby Anderson, leaderu.com)

Degradation leads to addiction to pornography and an obscenely sexualized culture.  Individually, those given over are characterized by a mix of the following: warped, distorted, freakish characters, narcissism, hard egoism, and uncongenial dark natures issuing in extreme, uncontrollable passions resulting in abnormal, compulsive sexuality, sodomy, bestiality, pederasty, pedophilia, lesbianism, androgyny (transgender), fetishes and sadomasochism: 

"The Folsom Street Fair turns 30 on Sunday, Sept. 21. The annual celebration of leather, fetish and BDSM communities brings hundreds of thousands of people to SoMa...Among the more fashion-centric kinks on the rise are sports uniforms (Sports Authority is a sponsor this year), human “puppy gear” (just as it sounds) and adult-baby costuming (ditto). Be on the lookout for both canine courses and a new adult-baby playpen space as concessions to these emerging fetishes."  (Folsom Street Fair: Tips for weathering the fetish festival, Tony Bravo, sfgate.com, September 19, 2014 )

The Word of God has pronounced judgment on any nation that would reclassify evil as good, darkness as light, and bitter as sweet (Isaiah 5:20). Romans 1 clearly identifies the evidence for the wrath of God on a nation:

"...sexual immorality followed by homosexual immorality culminating in a reprobate mind. This most recent step reminds us that God’s wrath has come in full. We now see reprobate minds at every level of leadership – in the Supreme Court, the presidency, cabinet, legislature, press and culture." (An Open Letter to TMS Alumni, John MacArthur)

The third stage: anarchy

"Once a society has rejected God's revelation, it is on its own. Moral and social anarchy is the natural result. At this point God has given the sinners over to a depraved mind and so they do things which are not proper. This results in a society which is without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, and unmerciful." (ibid, Anderson)

Anarchy means automatic rebellion against every vestige of truth, virtue, rules, order, and authority and the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil, natural and unnatural, truth and lie.  All sense seems like nonsense; nothing is ever right, natural, good and true resulting in Nietzsche's trans-valuation of values solidified in cursing, blasphemy, scoffing, mocking, cruel criticism, contempt, ridicule, meanness, spite, hate, violence, wrath, explosive rage, belligerence, theft, rape, incest, murder, killing of babies, beatings, and terrorism.

The final stage is abandonment and judgment:
 
"God's judgment rightly falls upon those who practice idolatry and immorality. Certainly an eternal judgment awaits those who are guilty, but a social judgment occurs when God gives a nation over to its sinful practices."  (ibid, Anderson)

Just as Israel's population was oblivious to the approaching doom which Old Testament prophets foresaw, so is America's population.  Judgment falls upon a spiritually dead idolatrous society that has made an enemy of the Holy God and takes refuge in  rebellion, negation, lies, and heresy.  In its' blindness it cannot see that it is worshipping the devil and has entered into a covenant with death and hell. 

In the face of such bad news, the faithful must not lose hope, for even if the whole world is given over, the faithful should never give up because as Paul said, "If God is for us who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)  Moreover, we must not give up the hope that God's patient kindness in postponing the final judgment will be an occasion for unbelievers to see their sin and come to Christ.

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

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

By the inner logic of their evolutionary thinking, theologians such as Robinson are neo-pagan naturalists pretending to be Christians, hence both subjectivists (moral relativists) and nihilists who by their will to power destroy certainty in the Revealed Word by trashing the Genesis account in the name of science, evolution, and progress,  Robinson describes the progressive turmoil and divisiveness ripping apart the Episcopal and Presbyterian churches on behalf of progress, sodomy and lesbianism as “holy chaos.”   Holy chaos is infernal confusion and disorder that represents “a step forward” from the certainty that most Christians felt when it came to what God and churches thought of homosexuals.” (ibid)

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

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

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

The assault against the Holy Triune God that began during the Renaissance gained speed and force with the philosophical materialist implications of Darwinian theory.  The idea that humans magically evolved by chance and natural selection from indifferent primordial water lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.  On the heels of Darwinian theory Christian theism came under forceful attack allowing an atheistic-mindset to be declared a scientifically supported reality.
 
Karl Marx's exuberance for Darwin's idea prompted him to consider dedicating his Das Kapital to Darwin, an honor which Darwin declined.   Marx was a materialist, hence the rationale behind his invitation to Darwin was that he saw how  Darwin's materialist theory provided the scientific framework to support his economic infrastructure on which he could build his godless communist utopia.  
 
Darwin's materialist theory (loss of a living Creator-God), and Marxist materialist presuppositions (new economic theory based on hatred of God) together with Freud's materialist- based analysis of religion and human sexuality threw faith in God and Christian theism "over the wall of civilization,' said Zacharias:
 
"With such abusive attacks directed at religious belief coming from so many directions, it was left for someone to cast this creature called theism completely out, and exorcise the world of all such influence.  The one who did that was the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche." (p. 25)
 
By the time of Nietzsche, perceptive thinkers had already been expressing apprehension at the prospect of the awakened multitudes who would eventually be exploited by materialist haters of God (i.e., Lenin, Stalin, Hitler).  With Nietzsche, dreadful apprehension deepened into certainty, for Nietzsche despised religion in general, but upon Christianity he poured his unbridled fury:
 
"I call Christianity the one great curse, the one enormous and innermost perversion, the one great instinct of revenge, for which no means are too venomous, too underhanded, too underground, and too petty." (Nietzsche in "The Life of Nietzsche," Faru Forster Nietzsche, 1921, p. 656)
 
It was Nietzsche, the dark prophet, the son of a Lutheran pastor, who pronounced the death of 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)

Nietzsche boasted that nihilist adherents of revolution and immorality,

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

Extremism–brazen egoistic arrogance—is one aspect of their magic. The other is the Lie—big lies, small lies, subtle lies, and lies of omission. Lies enforced by "will to power" are all that is left if the Holy God is dead in the hearts of men.  Nihilism, or objective meaninglessness, is the logical assumption if the living, personal transcendent Holy God does not exist.

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

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

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

If man is not God’s spiritual image-bearer, as nihilists claim in the name of their infernally dark Enlightenment doctrines and evolutionary science, then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ walked this earth:

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

Seraphim Rose, author of “Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age“ observes that nihilists scorn the Revealed Word, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo in particular, together with any thought or action concerned with sin, heaven and hell. Holding that only the natural dimension exists (the evolving universe of energy and matter) nihilism reduces everything---including man-- to biological, chemical, and physical processes. More profoundly,

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

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

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

“… all expressions of individual identity in favor of an impersonal collective, communal consciousness.” (The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, p. 74)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dr. Gonzalez concurs,

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

In other words, Christ-hating nihilists have successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism. With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, then history---which begins with creation and ends with the Book of Revelation---is a relic of man's pre-scientific past.  The supremacy of evolution means that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection. Thus the finely tuned new man believes that he is the stuff of the future. This rootless, increasingly androgynous entity actually believes that he is evolving toward something higher.   In fact, trans-humanists believe that they have already transcended, or evolved beyond mere humanity. 

But all of this is a great lie, a massive deception, said Rose:

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

In his "Abolition of Man" C.S. Lewis foresaw the depersonalization of mankind at the hands of "elite class" nihilists.  He recognized that if God is dead and there is no divine meaning or purpose in nature, if nature is only cause and effect processes that have no inherent meaning or purpose apart from what nihilists choose to impart to it, then nature is simply there to be conformed, controlled, and manipulated according to the wants, desires, and purposes of nihilists.

But what happens when nihilists realize that humans are themselves mere biological, chemical, and physical processes?  Stephen Turley comments:

"Lewis feared that such recognition, particularly among the engineering elite, increasingly consigns humans to legitimate objects of manipulation. If man is no more than nature, and if nature is by definition that which is to be conquered and controlled for our own benefit, then some humans will be controlled and manipulated for the benefit of those who have the power to do so." (The Disordered Loves of Liberal Media, Stephen Turley, The Imaginative Conservative) 

Lewis gives the obvious example of contraception, where those who control nature in effect control other humans. This said Turley,

"... is precisely the driving force behind abortion, and why today there is a class of elites that sees abortion as more sacred than the Second Amendment. Abortion, unlike the Second Amendment, controls nature and thus embodies the greatest good of the modern age. This is why the practice of slaughtering and dismembering humans in abortuaries and harvesting their body parts—in the name of reproductive rights and curing disease—can be treated with the callous levity portrayed in the hidden videos. This explains why the shooting and beheading of a lion can evoke such moral outrage. Baby parts promise cures, while lions are merely cute."

 The New Man is the product of a vast tissue of deception, its threads being vicious hatred of God and Jesus Christ in particular, neo-pagan naturalism and evolutionary cosmologies, science as the only acceptable knowledge, and nihilist philosophies solidified in mass delusion which have been working their way through our culture, embedding themselves, often unconsciously, within our psyches where they eventually effect a counter-conversion of souls.  This means that the New Man is not new at all.  With God dead in his heart and unfettered by transcendent Truth and Moral Law he is nothing more than the old man, the natural man in his original state of sin.   In 1 Corinthians 2 Paul uses the word natural to refer to someone still in his original (sinful) state. The Greek word psuchikos (“natural”) can be defined as “animal,” as opposed to “spiritual.” Natural men are those who are occupied with the things of this material world to the exclusion of the things of God. They are led by instinct rather than by the Spirit of God. They intuitively choose sin over righteousness. They are the “pagans” Jesus refers to in Matthew 6:32 who only seek after the things of this world. (Natural Man, gotquestions.org)

In falling away from the living Triune God comes the reversal of conversion in which the soul ceases to live from the spirit and begins to live with the life of the body. The disordered passions thereby revived absorb the life of the person who spiritually dies resulting in the natural man of 2 Tim. 3:3. (St. Tikhon, Works II, quoted in Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, p. 120)

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

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

Calling Evil by Its Name

In the fourth video released by The Center for Medical Progress a Planned Parenthood VP says fetuses may come out intact and agrees on payments specific to the specimen. 

After more than fifty years of having it pounded into our heads by amoral humanists that evil does not exist, the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos leave many if not most Americans without the right words to express their shock and revulsion.  Evil however, is the appropriate descriptor.   Planned Parenthood either skillfully crushes unborn living babies in order to behead them and cannibalize them for their body parts or as we now learn, kills them upon birth for the same barbaric purposes.  This is evil rationalized and justified by wicked people as "scientific research" a "woman's choice" and "family planning."

America's Rising Empire of Evil

In the fourth video released by The Center for Medical Progress a Planned Parenthood VP says fetuses may come out intact and agrees on payments specific to the specimen.

After more than fifty years of having it pounded into our heads by amoral humanists that evil does not exist, the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos leave many if not most Americans without the right words to express their shock and revulsion.  Evil however, is the appropriate descriptor.   Planned Parenthood either skillfully crushes unborn living babies in order to behead them and cannibalize them for their body parts or as we now learn, kills them upon birth for the same barbaric purposes.  This is evil rationalized and justified by wicked people as "scientific research" a "woman's choice" and "family planning."  

Under the morally and culturally destructive influence of our so-called "enlightened" ruling class, America is quickly becoming this century's Evil Empire.  When President Reagan identified the Soviet Union as the 20th century's Evil Empire little did he know that his beloved country was slated to suffer the same fate.
 
As Communism and socialism are the politics of evil these thought systems are infernal magnets drawing power-hungry evil-minded people.  The evil are manipulative, and because they hold other people in contempt, they freely use their victims for purposes of self-gratification. Other common characteristics include:  moral relativism (no absolutes), an overwhelming sense of entitlement, parasitism, psychological and physical bullying, casual cruelty, pleasure at inflicting pain (sadism), insensitivity, dishonesty, pathological lying, aggression, impulsiveness, promiscuity, and irresponsibility.

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

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

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

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

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

In the Soviet Union Marxists routinely rubber-stamped their evil-doing as something "good" committed in the name of science, revolution, progress and free love, for example. In his well-researched expose of Communism, "The Naked Communist," author W. Cleon Skousen reveals that ‘free love’ was made possible when women were declared the property of the pagan god-state. Anarchists were given control of the sex-slaves. They in turn issued ‘usage’ licenses to ‘workers.’ In other words, women were forcibly dominated and sexually violated and this was called ‘free love.’ Skousen quotes a Communist official who justifies this evil in the name of Revolution:
 
There is no such thing as a woman being violated by a man; he who says that a violation is wrong denies the October Communist Revolution. To defend a violated woman is to reveal oneself as a bourgeois and a partisan of private property.” (The Naked Communist, Skousen, p. 73)
 
In post-Christian America our decadent ruling class and their morally-corrupted followers get away with their evil-doing by persuasively convincing, and when necessary, terrorizing the rest of us into submissively accepting that it is intolerant, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, sexist, and yes — hateful — if we call their ever unfolding evil by its’ name. James Hitchcock comments:
 
Evil people exploit good people by persuading them that it is wrong to call evil by its’ name.” (Persuasive Wickedness & What We Must Say About It, James Hitchcock)

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

Over fifty years ago, early Conservative intellectual John Hallowell predicted the tyranny of evil currently overspreading our nation. He warned that if America and the West are to find redemption from the coming tyranny,
 
We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin.” (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George Nash, p. 52)
 
The Holy God, Creator of heaven and earth is not dead; Darwinism and global change are scams; all men are fallen not born good, nor are they evolving to a higher moral purity.  This is stupid hogwash sold to gullible people by snake-oil salesman.  The truth is that no concept gives “deeper insight into the enigma that is man” than original sin. Evil is not just a “bad dream,” warned Richard Weaver, author of “Ideas Have Consequences.” Evil is not “an accident of history,” or the “creation of a few antisocial men.” It is a “subtle, protean force,” and original sin is a “parabolical expression” of this “immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing.” (ibid) 
 
The possibility of evil resides within all men and women, of both sexes and every skin color, with absolutely no exceptions. Moreover, we cannot understand evil or even know what to say about it unless we return to the Biblical view of man:

"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insight we have into the nature of man and of the crisis we find ourselves in..." (John Hallowell, The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George Nash, p. 53)
 
The greatest triumph of evil will not be the victory over the temporal, political, and economic orders but rather, the destruction of the God-breathed human spirit and the downward-spiraling transformation of Americans into a nation of submissive bystanders and insane executioners of their own and their neighbor's God-given rights to life and morally-ordered liberty.  A spirit of evil working through our ruling class and their followers is legislating and tyrannizing decent, God-fearing Americans into the mental and physical Gulag.  Like stupefied sheep we are tolerating myriad evils perpetrated against ourselves and our children  in the name of politically correct multiculturalism, LGBTQ sex education, "gay" rights, open borders, universal (socialistic) health care, and green sustainability programs to name but a few of the political evils forced upon us.  Moreover, we are trying to endure in the name of personal preservation the evil dehumanizing slavery from which brave Americans spent a century fighting and spilling their blood to deliver the rest of the world
 
In sum, it is the unrestrained evil in man which is the tyranny of evil that is the 'parabolical expression' of totalitarianism.

America's Bloody Mayans, Human Sacrifice, and Cannibalism

America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of mankind, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, "I am the Lord your God...I am the Truth..." and "in His own image He made them, male and female He made them.....I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..."   Our Constitutional rights, beginning with the most important one, the right to life, flows from this seedbed, and because human beings are in the spiritual image of the Lord, throughout Christianized Western civilization there exist strict prohibitions against cannibalism and human sacrifice.

The pagan world however, has never shared Western sensibilities. Throughout history in many parts of the world, groups of people have performed unimaginably cruel human sacrifices as a way of pleasing or appeasing their gods.

For example, in 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death.

The actual rite of child sacrifice at Carthage has been graphically described by Diodorus Siculus:

"There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)

Plutarch, a first and second century A.D. Greek author, adds to the description:

"...the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people." (ibid)

Except in method, the Mayans were no different in this regard. Inscribed stones bear witness to the Maya practice of human sacrifice--- adult male, female and child:

"The common method for human sacrifice seems to have been for the "ah nacom" (a functionary) to extract the heart quickly, while 4 people associated with Chac, the rain/lightning god, held the struggling victim's limbs. Human sacrifices seem to have been made, as well, with arrows, by flaying, decapitation, hurling from a precipice, and throwing the victim into a limestone sinkhole."  (Human Sacrifice and the Maya, N.S. Gill, ancienthistory.about.com)

As evil as this sounds, the Maya were amateurs when it came to human sacrifice on a massive scale:

The Aztecs of Central. Mexico, many years later, once sacrificed twenty thousand people in a single ceremony to commemorate the dedication of a new temple. Then they ate them." (Maya Human Sacrifice...Say it isn't so, ambergriscaye.com)

The kind of human sacrifice practiced by the Aztecs involved the use of large stones, boulders really, against which the victims would be placed:

" The victims would be forced to lean back against the stone, causing their chests to protrude to make it easier for the pagan priests to slice open their chests, reach in, yank out a still beating heart and eat it. The hair of the priests were matted with blood, and the walls of temples themselves were soaked inside and out with human blood, as if they had been streaked and splattered with red paint. " (Planned Parenthood and the Aztecs, Bryan Fischer, OneNewsNow, Thursday, August 20, 2015)

America's Bloody Mayans

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

So-called "scientifically enlightened" Western and American civilization is not ascending to higher and higher heights of perfection but rather plunging into chaotic darkness because wicked, rebellious, evil-minded men and women have turned away from the Light. Throughout post-Christian America a new Gnostic-paganism has displaced the Holy Triune God, our founding Biblical worldview, immutable truth, Moral Law, and everything good and natural. Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' it declares that the Biblical God is scientifically-passé and that now every human is god or goddess and his/her/its own morals-and gender maker.  
 
 Millions of human-deities, each with their own personal truths and moralities, and multiple and ever evolving 'genders'---this is pagan polytheism issuing in idolatry and the return of human sacrifice and cannibalization of body parts on altars of idolatrous self-worshippers:

We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not going to crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, I’m going to crush above, and I’m going to see if I can get it all intact….”   (Deborah Nucatola, MD, Director of Medical Services, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, July 25, 2014)

When negotiating about fetal tissue, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services talksabout a “less crunchy technique” for keeping body parts intact during a partial-birth abortion. When negotiating about fetal tissue, she says the price, “has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me,” at one point explaining “I want a Lamborghini.”  (‘Don’t Want to Lowball’ Baby Parts; Another Planned Parenthood Official on Tape, Kathryn Jean Lopez, nationalreview.com, July 21, 2015)

This week's release of the latest undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) shows that the pagan rituals of the Aztecs have returned from the bowels of Hades with a vengeance.  It reveals the gruesome reality that,

"... babies are born alive in Planned Parenthood abortuaries, and then laid on tables with their tiny little hearts still visibly beating in their chests. The abortionist then takes a pair scissors and cuts the face of the baby in two so that its brain can be extracted, a procedure that starts while the baby is still alive." (ibid, Fischer)

Leading stem-cell researchers believe that the evidence uncovered by CMP indicates that Planned Parenthood, in order to send fresh specimens to researchers,

"... keeps some babies alive right up until the moment their hearts are cut out of their bodies. This is because a heart is only good for research if it can be prepped for shipping within five minutes of death." (ibid)

While America's modern Aztecs are very vocal when it comes to saving snail darters, owls, trash fish, alligators and wolves at the expense of human flourishing they generally rationalize sacrifice of unborn humans on the lie that the unborn are not human but rather clumps of uterine cells in process of evolution.    Accordingly, unborn humans are not human when being suctioned, torn apart and crushed.  However, the unborn magically transform into 'human' when their lungs, hearts, heads, and other body parts are coveted by well-funded cannibals for research purposes.

When Philadelphia police officers raided Gosnell's abortuary they were stunned by what they saw.  Dismembered baby parts were everywhere: in milk jugs, bags, cat food cartons, and in the refrigerator next to staff lunches. In the freezer they was a fully intact 19-week-old aborted child and in the basement they found a collection of severed babies feet, lined up in jars.  

From the videos we have learned that the standard operating procedure for Planned Parenthood Aztecs is similar to Kermit Gosnell's standard operating procedure.  Like Planned Parenthood, Gosnell regularly delivered babies and then murdered them.  Gosnell murdered them by snipping their spinal cord.  Between his procedure and Planned Parenthood's the only difference  is method.   Gosnell was ultimately charged with eight counts of murder.  One for a patient, the other seven for delivering and then murdering babies.

 Kermit Gosnell's murder of newborn babies is sadistic and evil.  But Planned Parenthood's financially lucrative murder of living babies for their brains, hearts and other parts is Constitutional and therefore perfectly legal, according to assorted self-centered, morally relative GOP jellies like Kasich and the legion of self-absorbed conscienceless monsters who currently control America's levers of power.  

What our idolatrous (self-centered), morally relative, evil-minded paganized culture and culturally relevant, morally relative church has forgotten is that whoever keeps our Lord's commandments loves Him (John 14:21) while the reverse is true for those who do not:

"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 neighbor as thyself." Luke 10:27

The end of the commandment is charity (love) from a pure heart, a good conscience and unfeigned faith. (1 Thess. 1:5) He that loves his neighbor fulfills the law for his heart is not blackened by thoughts of hate and murder:

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

The beginning of idolatry is pride (self-centeredness), which together with selfishness demonstrates preference for one's self instead of the Lord, neighbor and unwanted babies, and just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, murder is its' final result, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.

The Cross is a messenger of mankind's idolatry and murderous intentions. Therefore we are obliged to search ourselves for every bit of idolatrous self-centeredness and repent of them because,

"Look, I am coming soon! Says the Lord. My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. "Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star." (Rev. 22:12-16)

The Good Reason for Putin's Straight Pride Flag

In response to the U.S. enforced global wide LGBT movement and its' rainbow flag, the United Russia Party unveiled a banner celebrating the traditional, nuclear Russian family. The flag depicts two parents - a woman and a man - holding hands with three children.  (Vladimir Putin's United Russia Party unveils 'straight flag' to rival gay pride symbol, Kiran Moodley, independent.co.uk, July 9, 2015)

Whether Putin is a Christian as some think, or a tin pot despot he at least seeks the spiritual health and welfare of his society and people unlike Western and American "elites," God-hating progressive religious fanatics who in their madness, desire the death of the West at any cost. Thus they constantly promote as cultural "goods" socially, spiritually and physically destructive vehicles of death such as pornography as "rights," propaganda as daily "news," dumbed-down school curriculum together with perverse sex-education, debauchery as entertainment, tax-payer financed abortion, sterilization, so-called "gay" marriage, the "gaying" of our military, and other all aspects of our society. And not just Western society, but in their madness, the global community as well:

"President Barack Obama...lectured Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta about his country's gay rights record. 'When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that's the path whereby freedoms begin to erode," Obama said at a joint press conference with the Kenyan leader in Nairobi. "And bad things happen." Under Kenyan law, sexual activity between men is illegal and punishable with a maximum imprisonment of 14 years. Many Kenyan leaders had encouraged Obama not to discuss gay rights on his first trip to the country as President. But Obama equated legalized discrimination of gays to legalized racism in America." (Obama lectures Kenyan president on gay rights. Kristen Holmes, Eugene Scott, cnn.com, July 25, 2015) 

Ultimately, progressive religious fanaticism is the creature in rebellion against the Creator, His created order of being, immutable Truth, and His Moral Law. Hence it is rebellion against reality, hence everything normal, true, good, and right.  Former red diaper baby David Horowitz comments:

"the enemy is no longer a ruling class, a hegemonic race or even a dominant gender. Instead it is the sexual order of nature itself. Oppression lies in the very idea of the "normal," the order that divides humanity into two sexes. Instead of a classless society as the redemptive future, queer theorists envisage a gender free world." (Horowitz cited in "Are Evangelical Churches Drifting Left?" Barbara Sowell)

 Fueled by satanic pride, Bakunin — one of Karl Marx's partners in the First International — described the emancipation of man from the Triune God through destruction of the old order in these words:

"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority, revolt in which we see the fecund germ of all human emancipations, the revolution. Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done." Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds (he) emancipates (and) stamps upon his brow the seal of liberty...in urging (man) to disobey and eat of the fruit of knowledge. In this revolution we will have to awaken the Devil in the people, to stir up the basest passions. Our mission is to destroy, not to edify. The passion of destruction is a creative passion."

From the demonized Karl Marx, who declared that he would "walk triumphantly like a god" through the ruins of the old Christian-based order to Orwell's Big Brother and today's modern Canaanites--- 'elite' transnational Progressive 'green' nature worshipping globalists--all have or are proclaiming their godhood, whether covertly or overtly like Barbara Marx Hubbard:

"We are immortal...We can create new life forms and new worlds. We are gods!" a revelation channeled from her spirit guide 'Christ' to Hubbard, influential transnational green Progressive, one of the directors of the World Future Society along with Robert McNamara and scholars from Georgetown University, George Washington University, and the University of Maryland. (False Dawn, Lee Penn, pp. 316, 326)

More than forty-five years ago during his commencement address at Harvard in the 1970s, ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn warned that America was already tilting towards evil. Americans — specifically the progressive ruling class and intelligentsia — have forgotten the Holy God said Solzhenitsyn, and have embraced instead .the politics of destruction. America is on the same highway to hell taken previously by the Russians, said Solzhenitsyn.

Russia has been down this broad highway to hell before, and Putin obviously seeks to prevent his society and people from being forced into its fires again.

"The first demands for normalization of lesbianism, pedophilia, pederasty, sodomy, transgender, same-sex marriage, sex reassignment surgery, and the right to cross-dress were not made in "scientifically enlightened" post-Christian America but in Communist controlled Russia, as revealed in the article, "1920s Soviet Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals." It was also reported that masculinized, cross-dressing lesbians were rewarded with influential positions of authority and influence throughout academia, the Red Army, and in the cultural arena ..."   (Dan. 5:25---The Writing is on the Wall of America's Sexual Dystopia)

Under the insidiously malevolent direction of our spiritually-dead, reprobate "ruling class" America is well advanced into the fiery crucible:

Demonic Darkness: Why Godless America is Insane

In "The Body Politic is Queer," Dr. Peter Jones, Director of truthXchange and Adjunct professor of Westminster Seminary CA, writes that the Supreme Court's Obergefell v. Wade decision represents an historic moment for the United States:

"The Declaration of Independence, declaring that rights and laws are endowed by the Creator, has been rendered meaningless by a fake redefining of marriage, with no reference to the Creator or to any objective standards. The charade is over. This decision indicates that what has been happening for some time is finally here for all to see: the USA is clearly a “godless nation.” Let public figures supporting this decision no longer say or sing: “God bless America.” or “Amazing Grace.” It is just as worthless as their view of marriage."  (truthxchange, Jun. 26, 2015)

America is clearly a godless nation, and according to Father Gary Thomas, pastor at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Saratoga, Calif., and the exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose,

When faith becomes thin and Satan and agents of Satan move in, there are going to be effects...” (Does the US Need a Nationwide Exorcism?  Patti Armstrong, ncregister.com, 7/10/15)

One of the primary effects to befall a godless society like America is demonic subjection. According to Dr. Kurt Koch, (1913-1987) a highly respected German minister who pastored, counseled and delivered more than twenty thousand people suffering from demonic subjection in its various forms and manifestations throughout the world, there are many underlying causes of demonic subjection.

 Dr. Koch delineates some of the leading ones:

If a person blatantly lives a life of sin and persistently resists the Spirit of God and remains completely unrepentant, or if a person carries the sin of murder or abortion on his conscience, or has committed perjury or practical incest, if he has cursed his fellow men or blasphemed against the cross or against Christ, the Holy Spirit, or God, then he will have laid himself open to the devil’s attacks.  Every curse is in fact a cry to the devil, and can for this reason lead a person into bondage.” (Occult Bondage, 138)

Demonic subjection will also befall those who persistently engage in one of America's vastly popular past times: psycho-spiritual techniques such as channeling, tantric yoga, Kundalini yoga, centering techniques, visualizing/dreaming, positive imaging, trance music, brain-altering drugs, heavy metal and drugs, necromancy, magic, and witchcraft.  The same danger pertains to use of occult devices such as Ouija and Enneagram together with any of the other occultisms spreading like wildfire over America and into the whole body of the sleeping Church.

One of the first things to become subject to demonic influence 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)

In the following examples, Dr. Koch outlines some other conditions denoting demonic subjection that with every day becomes increasingly descriptive of both American culture and apostatizing Church:

1.Warped, distorted character; narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature

2. Extreme passions; abnormal sexuality, violent temper, fits of rage, belligerence, tendencies to addiction, meanness, kleptomania

3. Compulsive thoughts of suicide and murder; anxiety states, persecution complexes

4. Demonic possession: confusion, delusion; destructive, murderous urges; fits of mania, tendency to violence, inhabitation by demons, conscious atheism, simulated piety, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts and bigoted attitude against Christ and God. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

In "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," (1992) Malachi Martin presents five cases of possession expressing important elements and basic attitudes characterizing the demonic subjection and possession overtaking America’s godless postmodern society. In the possessed person these elements and attitudes are pushed to a very narrow and frightening extreme. Martin summarizes these elements and attitudes in the following points:

1.Moral imbecility: All sense suddenly seems like nonsense; nothing is ever right.  For example:

"Fresh off the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, Democrats in California have introduced a bill that would ban the words “husband” and “wife” from being used in federal law because they are “gendered terms” and discriminate against gay people."  (redrocktribune.com, July 10, 2015)

"New Bible Translation “Queen James Bible” Eliminates “Homosexuality As Sin” Because It Insults Gays"  (conservativepost.com)

"The Queen James Bible, also known as the Gay Bible, is a new assault on biblical orthodoxy and sexual purity."  (CARM, Matt Slick) 

2. Hopelessness, death and suicide confirmed as the only hope

3. Death, cruelty and contempt are normal:

"Gay Man Files $70M Suit Against Bible Publishers Over ‘Homosexual’ Verses" (TPNN, July 10, 2015) 

4. Moral relativism and/or subjectivism: the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil; male and female; all 'truth' and 'moral' values are subject to one's personal preference

5. Empiricism: The supernatural and miraculous must be resolved in 'natural' or rational and empirically verifiable scientific explanations

6. Naturalism: There can be no relevance for the modern person in anything that cannot be rationally understood and no 'truth' important beyond what is this-worldly or natural.

7. Androgyny: There are multiple and ever-expanding 'genders' and expressions of 'love'

8. Fatal confusion between spirit (mind, will) and psyche (soul). Of this Martin said, "If everything (of) spirit can be made to seem a product merely of human psyche...then love can be made to seem only a chemical interaction, and love's paradigm is killed."

9. Confusion: One basic note of possession is confusion of truth with lie, good with evil, supernatural with natural. Confusion, or satanic inversion, is a primary weapon of evil said Martin.

In "Three Characteristics of the Diabolical, and how they are Manifest in the Modern World," Msgr. Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington provides three more elements and attitudes characteristic of demonic subjection in our God-less society:

1. Love of Nudity:

"This is clearly manifest at several levels. First there is the widespread tendency of immodest dress..."fashions" (that) reveal more than is reasonable and generally have, as their intent to draw attention to aspects of the body that are private and reserved for sexual union in marriage. Too many in our culture see little problem parading about in various stages of undress, wearing clothing that are more intended to disclose and call attention to, than to conceal the private areas of the body. This love of disclosure and titillation is surely an aspect of the Evil One's love of nudity, and he has surely spread his obsession to many in the modern West".

2. Pornography: 

 "Though nothing new in this fallen world, has surely reached epidemic proportions via the Internet. Any psychotherapist, counselor or priest will tell you that addiction to pornography is a huge problem among people today. Pornographic sites on the Internet outpace all others tenfold. Multimillion Americans are viewing enormous amounts of pornography and the "industry" is growing exponentially. What was once hidden away in adult bookstores is now one click away on the Internet. And the thought that browsing habits are easily discoverable matters little to the addicts of this latest form of slavery. Many are on a steep slope downward into ever more deviant forms of porn. Many end up at illegal sites before they even know what has happened to them, and the FBI is knocking on their door. Satan's love of nudity has possessed many!"

3. The overall sexualization of culture also ties in to Satan's love of nudity: 

 "We sexualize women to sell products. We even sexualize children. Our sitcoms chatter endlessly about sex in a very teenage and immature sort of way. We are, collectively, goofy and immature about sex, and our culture giggles like horny teenagers obsessed with something we don't really understand. Yes, Satan loves nudity, and everything that goes with it."

4.  Confusion or satanic inversion is a prime weapon of evil:

"And then of course there is the utter confusion that celebrates homosexual activity. What Scripture calls gravely sinful, disordered, and contrary to nature (= ðáñὰ öýóéí – para physin – Rom 1:26) many in our culture now openly celebrate. And those afflicted as such, openly identify themselves with what tempts them:

"Under another housing option, Wesleyan’s Office of Residential Life invites gender-confused students who identify themselves under the umbrella of one or more of the 15 alternative sexualities to join a house embracing everyone but heterosexuals. This campus residence is called “Open House,” which welcomes each of the 15 groups represented by the acrostic “LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM.” For those not in-tune with many of the invented “gender identities,” LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM individuals represent the following groups (in order): lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, genderf***, polyamorous, bondage/disciple, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism." (Wesleyan Univ. pulls men-only frats, pushes housing for 15 ‘sexualities,' Michael F. Haverluck, OneNewsNow.com,  Friday, February 27, 2015)  

Rather than lament the difficulty and trial of such affliction and offer love, support and truth that they, may live celibately, (as all the unmarried are called to do), our sex saturated culture, blinded and darkened by its own wild lust, affirms and encourages them to indulge what can only bring further harm to them, and others, for it is of the darkness and contrary to nature. They have exchanged the truth of God for a lie... Romans 1:25"   (blog.adw.org, Apr. 8, 2013)

Homosexual activity is of the darkness, yet while our White House and increasing numbers of Americans tolerate and celebrate it our children, military, and society in particular are paying the price:

It appears that the DOD has serious problems  with male-on-male sexual assaults that men are not reporting and the Pentagon doesn’t want to talk about,” said Elaine  Donnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness. She noted that only 2 percent of assailants are women." (Victims of sex assaults in military are mostly men, Rowan Scarborough, washingtontimes.com, May 20, 2013)

"Forcible sodomy of men and rape of women is certainly causally connected to completed and attempted suicides. Yet, despite the high rates of male and female rape and forcible sodomy, the CDP report dodges the prominent role of both sexual abuse and pornography - that is, how-to sex abuse manuals and videos - in fueling the lust and contempt that spawns both offender sexual abuse and victim suicidal ideation." (Military sodomite abuse: The untold story, Judith Reisman, Ph.D., drjudithreisman.com, May 2013)

 "The Obama Administration is heightening its already-heavy focus on promotion of its “LGBT rights” agenda  overseas, creating a specific ambassador slot to champion the cause."   (Obama admin. announces first-ever Special Envoy for LGBT rights, Lisa Bourne, Wed Feb 25, 2015) 

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

According to ancient Rabbinical literature, God finally destroyed the demonically subjected pre-flood world when evil had come to its fullness with men marrying other men and animals, and women marrying other women.  Now God is Judging our godless, sexual dystopia.  Thus our increasingly insane, lawless, pornographic, homo-sexualized, disunited, satanically inverted sexual dystopia has passed into a state of confusion and stupefaction as it implodes under the powerfully destructive effects of demonic subjection at every level of society.

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

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

The writing on the wall is both the Judgment of God and the work of depraved God-hating utopian forces.  By the end of WW II progressive apostates and like-minded revolutionaries had already begun the insidious work of transforming America from one nation under God--- though by the 60's already tipping toward evil---into a Never-Never land of emotion-driven, emasculated male bots and masculinized female bots fueled by destructive impulses. A very similar transformation happened in Germany immediately prior to the Nazis taking over that country and in Russia prior to its takeover by Communists. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The "New" Post-Homophobic Christianity

In the wake of the Supreme Court ruling a collection of celebrities in Hollywood and professional American athletes rejoiced over Friday’s decision.  The Chicago Cubs Dextor Fowler twitted, In 1967, interracial marriages were legalized. If that had not happened, my wife and I would not be able to in union. Love should ALWAYS win.  Olympic figure skater Johny Weir wroteMarriage equality in all 50 states! Congratulations America! Brimming with pride.  Football player Scott Fujita tweeted, Resist the urge to engage in debate with those in opposition to equality. There is NO MORE debate. Just rejoice and celebrate this moment.  Pop icon Madonna tweeted, “Finally And at Last! The Revolution Of Love has Begun! #livingforlove #rebelheartsunite”  While former Disney Channel actress turned music star, Demi Levota wrote, “I couldn’t be more proud to be an American today… What an incredible day for equality!!!!”   (1)

In "The New Post-Homophobic Christianity," a triumphant Sally Kohn notes that since the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges  the vast majority of Americans are saying, “Hallelujah!” With the endorsement of "Gay Pride" by the Episcopalian Church, the Presbyterian Church (USA) and many other major Christian denominations, post-homophobic Christianity  is indeed the new normal in America:  

"The world has changed. Christians and Christianity has changed, too. And again, I say, “Hallelujah!”  (thedailybeast, July 5, 2015)

Where compromising churches in Hitler's Germany proudly displayed Mein Kampf on altar tables next to the Cross of Christ, their counterpart today proudly flash the "Gay Pride" rainbow flag and like rainbow colored Pied Pipers lead the way in the “Open and Affirming” church movement that is sweeping through our nation like wildfire. 

In contrast to elated "Gay Pride" celebrants  the highly respected pastor John MacArthur soberly pointed out that no human court has the authority to redefine marriage, and the verdict does not change the God ordained reality of marriage. God was not defeated in this ruling.   Moreover, warned MacArthur, every marriage will be judged according to biblical grounds on the last day. Nothing will prevail against Him (Proverbs 21:30) and nothing will thwart the advance of His Kingdom (Dan. 4:35).  (An Open Letter to TMS Alumni, John MacArthur)

The Word of God has pronounced judgment on any nation that would reclassify evil as good, darkness as light, and bitter as sweet (Isaiah 5:20). Romans 1 clearly identifies the evidence for the wrath of God on a nation:

"...sexual immorality followed by homosexual immorality culminating in a reprobate mind. This most recent step reminds us that God’s wrath has come in full. We now see reprobate minds at every level of leadership – in the Supreme Court, the presidency, cabinet, legislature, press and culture." (ibid)

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