That Hideous Strength (Demonic Outpouring) and Unconscious Satanism

"If all the West part of the world is apostate, might it not be lawful, in our great need, to look farther...beyond Christendom?  Ransom shook his head. "You do not understand,"  he said to Merlinus.  "The poison was brewed in these West lands but it has spat itself everywhere by now...You might go East so far that the East became West and you returned to Britain....but even so you would not have come out anywhere into the light.  The shadow of one dark wing is over all Tellus."  (That Hideous Strength, CS Lewis)

Working within the darkness Satan's wing, the modern heirs of a rebellion against the Holy Triune God that began during the Renaissance are once more, but this time on a universal scale, seeking no less than their fusion (oneness) with the 'divine' energy field and its evolutionary progress into ever higher forms of life: 

" Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity. Its full flowering be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...."  (Robert Muller (1923-2010), former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations, architect of World Core Curriculum, hailed as the U.N.s Prophet of Hope in "Shaping a Global Spirituality, p. 49) 

The roots of evolution stretch back to Mesopotamia and the city of Babylon.  In its modern version evolution describes the progress (transmigration) of a divine spark or energy as it inhabits in succession the bodies of different beings over the course of millions and billions of years. In the words of Emergent Church leader Rob Bell, evolution is an energy in the world, an electricity that everything is plugged into:

"The Greeks called it zoe, the mystics call it 'Spirit,' and Obi-Wan called it 'the Force'.....This energy, spark, and electricity that pulses through all of creation sustains it, fuels it, and keeps it growing. Growing, evolving, reproducing..." (Love Wins, pp. 144-145)

For initiates and adepts like Robert Muller, evolution magically transforms man into god:

"....the evolution of man into superman — was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries, and the real purpose of modern Masonry is not the social and charitable purposes to which so much attention is paid, but the expediting of the spiritual evolution of those who aspire to perfect their own nature and transform it into a more god-like quality. And this is a definite science, a royal art, which it is possible for each of us to put into practice..." (The Meaning of Masonry, W.L. Wilmhurst, p. 47)

 Within the context of this royal occult science all being (god, man, universe) is at bottom one, or monistic, making it possible while under direction of demons for the mind of man to fuse with 'god.'  Beneath the idea of man's fusion with the divine energy field is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle (magic tradition) of the correlation of the divine energy field with the mind of man: “As above, so below

Hermes Trismegistus is the father of the magic tradition.  His world-famous magic formula demonstrates the consubstantiality (oneness) of Herme's divine mind with the energy field or one substance above.  In teaching the meaning of the formula to his son Tat he said:

"The intellect, O Tat, is drawn from the very substance of God.  In men, this intellect is God, and so some men are gods and their humanity is near to divinity...If man makes right use of (God's gifts), he differs in no way from the immortals."  (God and the Knowledge of Reality, Thomas Molnar, p. 78)

Hermes' guru, a spirit director called Poimander, taught him that,

"Unless you make yourself equal to God, you cannot understand God, for the like is not intelligible save to the like." (ibid, p. 79)

From the time of Babylon, men have employed a variety of occult psycho-technologies and substances such as consciousness-altering drugs, hypnosis, yogic trance, transcendental meditation, ecstatic dance, drumming, and in our own age, heavy metal rock music (especially in combination with drugs), the Silva Method, deep-breathing exercises and electronic dance music in the quest to become “one” with the 'light' or energy field above:

“... I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe. Thereby, too, my deepest 'pantheist' aspirations It was especially the image of God which Teilhard saw in need of urgent redefinition. Modern man has not yet found the God he can adore, a God commensurate to the newly discovered dimensions of the universe” (Ursala King, "Towards a New Mysticism- Teilhard de Chardin and eastern religions" p.172)

 Our increasingly Satanic age of subjectivism, spreading apostasy, spiritism, global pedophile rings, and other unspeakable evils is witnessing an explosive revival of this ancient occult phenomenon.  A major reason is that psychology allegedly provides us with a 'scientific' explanation that ascribes whatever frightening entities encountered while on drugs or through techniques such as taught in the Silva Method to archetypal images from the collective unconscious, a theory attributed to the demonically influenced Carl Jung.

Jung's theory however, was preceded by William James (1842-1910) theory of “religious experience.”  Referred to as the father of American psychology, James theorized that religious experience is a manifestation of the “subconscious,” the means by which man communicates with God “within.”

The theories of James are examples of unconscious Satanism as Rene Guenon (1886-1951), the  French metaphysician of Perennial Philosophy explains in, “The Spiritist Fallacy,” a detailed expose of the Theosophy, Hinduism, Buddhism, Spiritism and evolutionary thinking overtaking the minds of Western modernist priests and intellectuals during Guenon’s lifetime.  

Guenon--a man very knowledgable about the Ancient Mysteries, spiritism, and occult---describes sophisticated Western theologians and like-minded intellectuals as those who cannot speak of the devil,

“….without a smile of disdain, or an even more contemptuous shrug of the shoulders.” (p. 252)

Their contempt is due to the fact that scientifically enlightened modernists bought into the lie that Lucifer is not the devil but rather the “light-bearer.” They even go so far as to call him ‘the Great Creative Intelligence.’  Thus they invoke Lucifer and perform his cult, but in fact these people,

“…though in fact Satanists, are only unconsciously so, for they are mistaken as to the nature of the entity to whom they address their worship….It goes without saying that these ‘enlightened’ priests are all plainly modernists and that the spirit animating them is strangely similar to that affirmed in these lines.” (p. 254)

Guenon attributes ‘unconscious Satanism’ to every 'modernist' conception that disfigures the living God, and in this sense, all theories of an 'evolver' God posited by evolutionary theologians and of a God who evolves (i.e., Teilhard de Chardin) must be placed in the front rank:

Modern philosophy has seen the birth of a new nation of God…It is God in evolution. God ‘is’ not.  He ‘becomes.’  In the beginning was not the Lord, but in the beginning was ‘Movement.’   From this movement God is born by successive creations.  As the world progresses, He progresses; as the world acquires perfection, He acquires perfection. (Moreover) man is a necessary step in the evolution of God. Just as man came from the beast, God will come from man…” (Great Catholic Books Newsletter; Volume II, Number 2, Fulton J. Sheen Issue)

 Satanism, even when unconscious, is always characterized by a reversal of good and evil and the the Lord's order of creation and is therefore the opposite of orthodox Christian doctrine.

In this sense, evolutionary conceptions are Satanic because they persuade people to believe that everything in nature is the fruit of a gradual upward progression from either pre-existing or self-generated matter rather than the fallen but nevertheless good creation of the living God Who spoke. 

Because infernal evolutionary conceptions reverse and upend the Genesis account ex nihilo, their sweeping acceptance means that it is now difficult if not impossible for Americans and Westerners to conceive of the Genesis account creation ex nihilo as traditional Christianity taught.  This is because if 'God' has evolved from man who has evolved from beasts then perfection obviously lies somewhere in the future rather than in the past from which mankind fell.  As well, if after a Big Bang a limited God used evolutionary energy over vast periods of time before the appearance of hominids then God is responsible for the suffering and death of millions of lifeforms preceding the hominids, making God the father of death and evil.  In this demonically inverted 'theology'  the 'way' to perfection proposed by the devil obviously lies with the occult science of Hermetic magic and psycho-technologies whereby mans salvation is achieved by becoming 'one' with the Divine Substance, Omega Point, Quantum Void, Brahman, or Singularity.

It is here that Guenon turns his attention to the theories of William James, which he classifies as unconscious Satanism for two reasons.   First, James theory of 'religious experience' as a manifestation of the 'subconscious' by which man communicates with the Divine 'within' is only one step away from “condoning the practices of spiritism” (contact with spirits) with the further consequence of conferring on evil spirits an “eminently religious character.”

This has come to pass.  As just one example out of hundreds is New Age theologian David Spangler speaking of Lucifer as a savior-spirit he correlates with Christ:

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

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

The second reason is that the idea that the subconscious puts man in contact with the divine 'light' within

 puts God in an inferior state of being, making this is an 'infernal doctrine.'  (pp. 258-262)

"And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. The one who has the Son has this eternal life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this eternal life."  1 John 5: 11-12

From the Renaissance to our own time, a stunning spiritual transformation of consciousness has been transferring Western and American thinking away from the  Son of God and His offer of salvation and eternal life toward unconscious Satanism and eternity in hell via the anti-gospel of the new pagan/pantheist religion of evolution and science.

Under the new pagan religion, the animated god-force called evolution is the principle miracle-producing power of the cosmos and unconscious Satanists are evolution's conscious products who can now achieve ever-higher levels of consciousness by directing their own evolution by going 'within.'

Some unconscious Satanists now claim that a powerful mechanism is presently available to man from aliens who will solve mankind's problems and conduct people to a new 'cosmic' age. Aliens are busily transforming the consciousness of abductees and other Westerners and through them teaching evolution, monism, occult New Age philosophy, warning of a coming planetary apocalypse and denying the living Triune God, the supernatural dimension and Christian theism.

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

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

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

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

All of this has led French physicist and UFO researcher Dr. Jacques Vallee to conclude that something is happening to human consciousness that is causing a major shift in man's belief systems and his relationship to the concept of the invisible. Vallee believes that the same "powerful force' that influenced the human race in the past is influencing it again:

".....human belief...is being controlled and conditioned, man's concepts are being rearranged, and we may be headed toward a massive change of human attitudes toward paranormal abilities and extraterrestrial life." (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 109)

In light of this, Vallee proposes the hypothesis that there is a control system,

"... for human consciousness...I am suggesting that what takes place through close encounters with UFOs is control of human beliefs, control of the relationship between our consciousness and physical reality, and that this control has been in force throughout history...." (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 158)

In occult terminology, this vast transformation of consciousness is egregore, a concept representing a 'thought form' or 'collective group mind,' resulting from a psychic entity influencing the thoughts of a group of people. As egregore derives from the Greek word for 'watchers,' the French occult magician Eliphas Levi (1810-1875) concluded that the fallen angel 'fathers' of the nephilim are the organizing powers controlling and dominating the 'collective group mind' (transformation of consciousness).

In Christian language, transformation of consciousness means demonic oppression and possession resulting from a 'demonic outpouring.' Vallee's "powerful force" is really a new demonic outpouring of the devil and his legions, even within apostatizing churches full of false converts, various occult rituals (yoga, 'new' contemplative prayer)  and devices (enneagram), corrupted Bibles and the bread of this world rather than heavenly manna:

There is a false ‘holy spirit’ called Kundalini that has invaded the churches.  It is the same spirit that Hindus, yoga practitioners,and New Agers are familiar with (the ‘serpent power’).  It is imparted by laying on of hands.  It, along with other unholy mocking spirits, began entering the ‘churches’ with the ‘Toronto Blessing’.  Another big doorway was Todd Bentley’s ‘Lakeland Revival’.  People, hungry for a move of God, went long distances to take part in these events, and to receive the spirit.  They then carried the spirit back to their home churches, and imparted it to others by laying on of hands…. If you believe you have received the Kundalini (or any other) spirit, then you need deliverance.  But don’t let that frighten you away from seeking the baptism of the Holy Spirit.” (Holy Spirit Baptism, dontbefooled666.wordpress.com)

By way of the temptation of pride Satan has cast mankind into the deepest void of idolatry and provoked a great falling away from faith in Jesus Christ. By turning proud men to the worship of science and evolution and crafting a false Christ consciousness from evolutionary energy together with a false church, the beast is quickly taking possession of the church without many people noticing it. 

“...the Word of God is clear that the last days would be marked by an unprecedented demonic outpouring. I believe we are at least in the edges of that outpouring even now – from international calls for demonic deliverance ministries to open displays of demonic and satanic rituals.”  (U.S Alarm: ‘Unprecedented Demonic Outpouring,’ Carl Gallups, WND, 8?16/2016)

"...the Hideous Strength confronts us and it is as in the days when Nimrod built a tower to reach heaven."  (That Hideous Strength, CS Lewis, p. 285)

That Hideous Strength confronts us and the faithful must persevere and hold tight to the Cross of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:

And He said to me, 'It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son."  Revelation 21:4

Malignant narcissism, ressentiment, and the wrath of God

Pride (narcissism) is the devil's original sin, which is why in his commentary on Psalm 18/2, 15, St. Augustine records that pride turned Lucifer into Satan and banned him eternally from heaven. Just as pride turned Lucifer into Satan, the Prince of lies, heresy, murder, rage, envy and demonic darkness, it leads the soul to likewise rebel against God, and inflated by devilish pride, wander off into Satan's darkness. This vice is therefore 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." Augustine

Malignant Narcissism, Ressentiment, and the Wrath of God

Pride (narcissism) is the devil's original sin, which is why in his Commentary on Psalm 18/2, 15,  St. Augustine records that pride turned Lucifer into Satan and banned him eternally from heaven. Just as pride turned Lucifer into Satan, the Prince of demonic darkness, it causes the soul to likewise rebel against God and wander off into Satan's darkness. This vice is therefore 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 wicked will of the bad man is not in submission to the Trinity but autonomous devilish self.  Having made an idol out of him or herself as is the case for increasing numbers of narcissistic Christians and non-Christians and in particular Leftist Progressive pagan 'elites' and their liberal acolytes---the narcissist assumes he possesses honor and self-invented rights. This is why preference for 'self' leads to contempt for the Holy Trinity, objective truth, law (i.e.,the Ten Commandments and Constitution), wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, institutions and other people, 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 and rage against the Holy God and one's brother, which means that there can be no charity whatsoever where there is envy (ressentiment) and hatred in one's heart. 
 
Ressentiment or malignant envy 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

Much of America's millennial mindset is darkly stained with malign antisocial and dehumanizing features,

“...and displays the sine qua non of narcissism, which is flamboyant rage when challenged.  It surfaces in celebrities so hardened that they extol and glamorize abuse and cruelty.  For the right wing, this is exemplified by Milo Yiannopoulos's statements about child abuse, and for the left wing by Lena Dunham's normalization of the abuse she committed and especially by her terminal addiction to the philosophy of glorious abortion.”  (Milo, Lena, and Malignant Millennial Narcissism, Deborah C. Tyler, American Thinker, May 13, 2017)

There is even burning envy of believers by unbelievers:

There is much less envy of the rich by the poor than there is of the happy by the unhappy; by those who believe by those who don’t believe.”   Dennis Prager

Bill Maher unwittingly reveals the evil disposition of his heart in his vicious tirade against  Christianity, which he malignantly describes as a,

 “...sexist, homophobic, magic act that’s been used to justify everything from genital mutilation to genocide..." “You want to raise the tax on tobacco so kids don’t get cancer? Okay, but let’s put one on Sunday school so they don’t get stupid.”  (Churches Should Pay Taxes for Making Children ‘Stupid’, zionica.com, April 19, 2016)

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)
 
Ressentiment, or what Schlossberg describes as Schadenfreude, is rejoicing at another person's suffering, thus vengeance is the principle manifestation of ressentiment:

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

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

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

"Political Ponerology" is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej M. £obaczewski to an interdisciplinary study of the founders and supporters of 20th century envy-fueled 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, despotism and genocide:

"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)

"... 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)

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 Progressive bankers and powerful Wall Street businessmen, Marxist Communists systematically stole the personal property of Russians, sexually perverted their children and filled their heads with Darwinism and  hatred of the Trinity, their own parents, the Christian church, priests, their homeland and its' culture and traditions. If this was not evil enough, they maliciously undermined and destroyed the traditional family, unleashed a holocaust of easy divorce and abortion as well as homosexualizing the culture, desecrating and blaspheming churches, crucifying thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committing 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 molten hatred of and rage against the Holy Creator God and the Body of Christ and burning with ressentiment and will to power – or what Lobaczewski terms the 'ponerogenic processes' that overtook modern Russia that 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, a green-eyed Saul to try to murder David, Judas to betray Jesus Christ and the Pharisees to crucify Him.

After ancient Greece had succumbed to a malevolent spirit of ressentiment, as is happening very quickly in America, an egalitarian, collectivist, or leveling impulse served to help relieve a vicious, envy-torn culture by leveling all people down to the lowest common denominator:

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

"...the envious are more likely to be mollified by seeing others deprived of some advantage than by gaining it for themselves. It is not what they lack that chiefly troubles them, but what others have. The envious are not satisfied with equality; they secretly yearn for superiority and revenge." (On Appeasing Envy, Henry Hazlitt, Mises Institute, July 30, 2013)

The anonymous author 'Michael Swift' warns of this very thing in a widely circulated article called "Gay Revolutionary." In prose that chills the spine Swift warns the envied straight community that the men of Sodom shall be victorious,

"....because we are filled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages...We too are capable of firing guns and manning barricades of the ultimate revolution....Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks." (Spirit Wars: Pagan Revival in Christian America, Peter Jones, p. 255)

Today increasing numbers of morally relativist Americans at every level of society, on both left and right, Christian and non-Christian, are controlled by inflated passions unfettered from the restraint of immutable Truth and Moral Law. Adding to the problem are culturally and science and evolution relevant church models attended by thousands of Americans that cater to self-indulgent pride and emotional feel-goodism (2 Tim. 4: 1-220). 

Worse, rancid  ressentiment oozes from the pores of America's God-hating, self-worshipping, evolutionary humanist Progressive ruling class and in particular, our pro-cross dressing, pro-sodomy, pro-abortion, pro-white racism, pro-any-destructive-idea lending itself to the misery, impoverishment, degradation, humiliation and suffering of middle class Americans.  For example, while pretending to be a caring President for every American, former President Obama's barely leashed enmity fueled his publicly stated belief that DNA doesn't make people male or female but it does make white people racist.   Obama's depraved claims were described by our equally depraved media as 'bold' rather than what they really were--enmity: 

“..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.”  ("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), will-to-power and vice will be celebrated rather than virtue and opposition from morally convicted people crushed.  It is then that we will face what Lobaczewski calls Macrosocial Evil or a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." (p. 121)

The most frightening aspect of America's descent into madness, idolatry, heresy, barbarism, ressentiment, vengeance-seeking, murderous rage, and lawlessness is that it 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)

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

In our “enlightened” age hatred of unchanging Truth is expressed in deceptive terms such as subjectivism, scientism, postmodernism, syncretism, moral relativism, universal evolution and deconstruction.  As evolution implies continuous change it is a two-pronged fork, a hellish spike scepter of relativism and deconstruction that with one tine serves up an anti-creation account—an inverted exegesis that reduces man in the spiritual image of the Holy Trinity to evolved ape, and with the other argues that since humanity has evolved from lesser to greater biological organisms, the same change process is in play in the area of morals and biblical infallibility. (1) Therefore, all that can be known at present—and forever—is that there is no absolute or fixed certainty in either the area of morality or the Revealed Word of God.

Crisis in the Church: Christless Theology, Evolution, and Subjectivism

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.” (Psalm 37:23)

Today, most of the American Church preaches an arrogantly man-centered theology that is not ordered by the Lord but by sinful men. It is a subjective, evolutionary and scientific, and/or 'feel good' theology in which the opinions of men and women are elevated above the eternally unchanging Authoritative Word of God.

"Nothing in the world makes sense except in the light of Genesis." - Dr. Del Tackett, Is Genesis History

Over and across the entire denominational spectrum of the church, theistic evolutionists, progressive creationists, gap theorists, and Teilhardians argue that Genesis 1 is not an essential Christian doctrine.  This stance however, misrepresents what’s at stake—the inerrancy, authority, and clarity of Scripture.  Even many Reformed theologians who have enshrined sola Scriptura in their doctrine statements,

"....have allowed their seminaries and churches to be infiltrated by compromised views of Genesis 1. Generally, they shudder at the thought of losing academic credibility and being sneered at by the gatekeepers of higher learning. The first casualty of that compromise is almost always a literal interpretation of the Bible’s first chapter.”   Cameron Buettel, Fridays Featured Sermon: “Creation, Theology, and the End of the Universe,” gty.org)

In their eagerness to persuade church leaders to accept evolution/long ages compromising theologians bring error and crisis into the church in four ways.

 First, they encourage Christians to question God’s Word, a tactic first used by Satan on Eve (Genesis 3).  (Nice Theologians Leading the Church Away from the Truth, Dr. Don Batten, May 2017, creation.com) 

Second, because evolution requires long ages they must say that the Lord God created a world of suffering and death right from the beginning, a position that makes God responsible for evil.  Thus because God’s creation was not “very good” right from the beginning then God is not good either.  In this way the Lord is robbed of goodness and the causes of man's sin, suffering, and death are projected onto the Lord and creation.

Third, they rob Jesus Christ the Word Who was with God and is God (John 1:1) of the worship that is His due. (Romans 1)  By persuading gullible Christians to accept evolution (for pagan and pantheist humanists, evolution is the primary creative force of Nature) they deceptively ascribe to Nature (capital N) the credit for the creation of everything.

Fourth, without a personal ‘hands on’ Creator, then Christianity has been rendered Christless with no moral law to break, no Judge, no judgment, and no need for a Savior. (ibid)

Within the context of Christless theology, hell doesn't exist or if it does then men in that place will be annihilated (a heresy posited by the Gnostic pagan Arnobius) or despite that everyone is living in sin they are going to heaven (a spiritually pagan position) because God is strictly a God of unconditional love (the god of pagan spirituality) rather than the supernatural Triune God of love but of wrath and judgment as well.  In conclusion, Christless theology means that man doesn't need a Savior since man in his arrogant defiance has made himself into his own savior (original sin).

However, man's Christless theology and subjective opinions and evolutionary speculations are NOT the Ultimate Authority but rather the outworking of sin:

"While sin invariably causes physical and (apart from faith in Christ) spiritual death, it has many other devastating consequences. Sin corrupts the mind (Jer. 17:9; Eph. 4:17-19), the will (cf. Jer. 44:16-17), and the affections (John 3:19; 1 John 2:15). Sin brings people under the control of Satan (John 8:44; Eph. 2:2) and makes them the objects of God’s wrath (Eph. 2:3). Sin robs people of peace (Isa. 48:22) and replaces it with misery (Job 5:7; Rom. 8:20). “    John MacArthur, The Plague of Plagues, Oct. 2, 2016

Crisis in the Church

We are witnessing the paganization and evaporation of orthodox Biblical theism to which must be added defiant rebellion against every vestige of authority, an inversion of history caused by evolutionary thinking, subjectivism, Critical Race Theory (an outgrowth of evolutionary thinking) applied to 'racist' dynamics within the church, and the fact that millions of subjectivist Americans,

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

One of the central realities of America's Christless theology is the dawning of a post-Christian culture now rapidly transitioning into an openly hostile anti-orthodox Christian society in which an anti-orthodox Christian consciousness is now well developed. Objective truth has been replaced by a tyranny of subjectivism and tolerance perverted into a paganism that is wholly open to 'gay' marriage, sodomy and androgyny (transgender); abortion as legalized 'choice,' obscene sex education for children, occult practices within both church and society, Satanism, shamanism, Wicca, magic, nudity, pornography and Rave Festivals but intolerant of God's Authority, Moral Law, immutable Truth and sexual ethics:

 "Neither in government nor individually do a large section of people know the difference between right and wrong anymore.  It has become my party, my plan, my profit, my side, my victory, my institution, my congregation or simply me, myself, and I....We live in a perverse society where it is illegal to name God, Jesus Christ, and their Commandments in school while at the same time it is legal to send hard core porn via the internet into the homes of citizens...It is the selfishness of ordinary people that opens the gate to immoral tyranny, just as it happened in Germany."   (Defeating the Totalitarian Lie: A Former Hitler Youth Warns America, Hilmar Von Campe, p. 198-199)

We are living in an age of deep and undeniable breakdown, an age of darkness and spreading insanity and evil where each autonomous man is his own 'truth-and-morals-maker' and insane savior.  As tentacles of evil reach into and take hold of the disordered minds of sinners, moral constraints and restraints are thrown off in the name of a Christless theology and Godless ideology that licenses liberation that does not emancipate but enslaves, does not save but condemns because sin-sick man cannot regenerate and cleanse his dead spirit (filthy conscience, wicked will, carnal mind), thus can neither forgive nor save himself.   

In a sermon entitled,"The Carnal Mind: Enmity Against God" C. H. Spurgeon describes the carnal mind:

"It is not black, but blackness; it is not at enmity, but enmity itself; it is not corrupt, but corruption; it is not rebellious, it is rebellion: it is not wicked, it is wickedness itself. The heart, though it be deceitful, is positively deceit; it is evil in the concrete, sin in the essence, it is the distillation, the quintessence of all things that are vile; it is not envious against God, it is envy; it is not at enmity, it is actual enmity."  (The Carnal Mind, GreatChristianQuotes.com)

Man is a desperate sinner in need of forgiveness and salvation by the Creator, Sustainer, and Physician of our souls, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  This is why in "The Poison of Subjectivism," C.S. Lewis warns that subjectivism will certainly end the human race and "damn our souls." Because Lewis was an orthodox Christian he agreed with the fundamental teachings of his Lord and savior Jesus Christ and the Old Testament prophets that salvation presupposes sin (soul sickness) and the need of repentance, therefore repentance logically presupposes an objectively real Moral Law and need of a Savior, thus It follows that Jesus Christ our Savior, did not die for our opinions. And this is precisely why we need to humbly repent of our arrogant pride, Christless man-centered theology and other sins and ask the Physician of our souls to heal our sin-sickness.

Subjectivism: Why It Will End the Human Race and Damn Our Souls

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

 As pre-flood barbarism was an anarchy of selfishness in accord with Nietzsche's moral philosophy, "You have your way, I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, it does not exist,” it is no different from its' "enlightened" and supposedly "evolved" modern Western counterpart.    The animating spirit of both pre-flood and post-flood barbarism is "there is no fear of God before their eyes," (Rom. 3:18) and "they do not love the Truth" (2 Thes. 2:10).

In our "enlightened" age hatred of unchanging Truth is expressed in deceptive terms such as subjectivism, scientism, postmodernism, syncretism, moral relativism, universal evolution and deconstruction.  As evolution implies continuous change it is a two-pronged fork, a hellish spike scepter of relativism and deconstruction that with one tine serves up an anti-creation account---an inverted exegesis that reduces man in the spiritual image of the Holy Trinity to evolved ape, and with the other argues that since humanity has evolved from lesser to greater biological organisms, the same change process is in play in the area of morals and biblical infallibility. (1) Therefore, all that can be known at present---and forever---is that there is no absolute or fixed certainty in either the area of morality or the Revealed Word of God.  

In his well-known book, "The Battle for the Bible," (1976) the late Dr. Harold Lindsell foresaw the ominous eventuality of apostasy once the doctrine of biblical inerrancy were largely scrapped as is increasingly the situation today:

"It is my contention that once biblical infallibility is surrendered it...will end up as apostasy at last. It is my opinion that it is next to impossible to stop the process of theological deterioration once inerrancy is abandoned.... "  (Lindsell, Harold. The Battle for the Bible. Lindsell, Pg. 142

Along with evolution, deconstructionism is another form of relativism or nihilism that for more than eighty years has been poisoning our moral and culture sustaining institutions from seminaries and Biblical scholarship to academia, law, media, arts, and politics, thence our minds, individually and collectively. (2) 

All together, modern barbarism is the universal madness (raging soul sickness) issuing in demonic darkness foreseen by the dark prophet Nietzsche. It was the apostate Christian philosopher Nietzsche,  the son of a Lutheran pastor who pronounced the death of the Christian God and saw that His death had aleady begun to cast its first shadows over Europe, and though the event itself is far too great,

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

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

First, the 20th century would become the bloodiest, most catastrophically destructive century in history, and second,  a universal madness would break out and as it reached its fullness in time would turn the West upside-down. Having rejected the Light that came into the world (John 3:19) Western 'elites' would turn back to ancient occult doctrines and irrational Gnostic pagan and mystical pantheist presuppositions.  Lucifer would be hailed as the first free-thinker and genetic creator of man, totalitarian communism and socialism would become heaven on earth, and love would no longer be the summation of the Ten Commandments but rather unconditional acceptance of the evil in man.  In this way everything perverse and abnormal would be good and normal so that male would also be female and female also be male while universal sodomy, pederasty, lesbianism, sadism, incest, rape and bestiality would become the norm.

Pilate said to him, ‘What is truth?’”  (John 18: 38)

Nietzsche has been right on both counts.  Our age is a darkly twisted, obscenely inverted time in which the things that everyone  really know to be true, good, decent, and right, are treated as unheard of, intolerant, judgmental, hateful, bigoted, anti-science and evolution, backward, stupid, narrow-minded, moronic, alarmist, divisive, racist, xenophobic and homophobic because the prevailing climate is one of moral relativism.  For example, a majority of Americans, both Christian and secular, deny that there is any absolute truth, especially when it comes to matters of personal and private vice.  This darkness is even deeper in Europe where most people have a live-and-let-live attitude, and voice opinions like, “What is right for you may not be right for me, and what is right for me may not be right for you.” (3)

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

In other words, it's Christian and Jewish parents who impress their own moral relativism upon their children.  Christian philosopher Peter Kreeft, Ph.D.,  reports that polls show that Catholics are as relativistic, both in behavior and in belief, as Protestants. Sixty-two percent of Evangelicals say they disbelieve in any absolute or unchanging truths, and American Jews are significantly more relativistic and more secular than Gentiles. (A Refutation of Moral Relativism, Peter Kreeft)

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

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

And then there are the lies about whether the Bible is the inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God written by men inspired by the Holy Spirit or is really nothing more than a book of myths and morals written by superstitious men in our prescientific, pre-evolutionary past.  And since this is the case, say relativists (liars), then why not say that God made and ignited a Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) which generated matter and energy. Then after billions of years of God-directed evolution eventuating in the suffering and death of millions of life-forms  (making God the cause of death and evil), man inexplicably fell from grace even though God is the guilty party.  If everyone feels that this version of events feels right then why not make it the indisputable account?    After all, who can know truth?

The Truth about Evil

Subjectivism begins with pride (love of self), and a will turned toward evil, the perfect anti-God, anti-truth, anti-authority, anti-higher knowledge state of mind:

"Our first parents fell into open disobedience because already they were secretly corrupted; for the evil act [would] never [have] been done had not an evil will preceded it. And what is the origin of our evil will but pride? For "pride is the beginning of sin" [Ecclus. 10:13?]. And what is pride but the craving for undue exaltation? And this is undue exaltation, when the soul abandons Him to whom it ought to cleave as its end, and becomes a kind of end to itself. This happens when it becomes its own satisfaction. . . . This falling away is spontaneous; for if the will had remained steadfast in the love of that higher and changeless good by which it was illumined to intelligence and kindled into love, it would not have turned away to find satisfaction in itself. . . . The wicked deed, then that is to say, the transgression of eating the forbidden fruit was committed by persons who were already wicked."  (Augustine, The City of God, trans. Marcus Dods et al., in Augustine, Basic Writings, 2:257-58; 14.13)

R.C. Sproul comments:

"Augustine...identifies the cause of the first transgression as pride. But he recognizes that the presence of pride is already evil. He does not shrink from declaring that the first actual sin was committed by creatures who were already fallen. They fell before they ate the fruit."  (Sproul, Willing To Believe: The Controversy Over Free Will, p.53)

In "Against the Heathen," early Church Father Athanasius writes that a haughty spirit filled with pride and conceit of self preceded pre-flood man's fall.  A haughty spirit led them to make light of the immutable truth and moral law of the Holy God, and deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began to seek in preference things in the lower or man-centered universe.  Thus, in preference to the Holy God and higher knowledge, they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things. Moreover, as they attributed the existence of all things animate and inanimate to nature they worshipped and served matter, movement and energy.

The truth as to evil said Athanasius,

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

What is Truth?  

Since the fall, all men and women---like dumb sheep---have obeyed the lusts of the flesh, worshipped the gods of intellectual arrogance and appetites, followed after the prince of the air and allured by his lies packaged as gleaming nuggets of esoteric truth dutifully slouched toward hell.  Truth however, is neither the seductive lies of the devil nor the opinions, fleeting feelings and perverted choices of fallen men but rather the Second Person of the Holy Trinity (John 16:6).  Jesus is the embodiment of the wisdom of God; He is the eternally unchanging Word of God.  John 1:10 tells us that everything seen and unseen was created ex nihilo by the spoken Word of the Son of God, which means that Jesus Christ was active and present long before His incarnation, therefore eternally co-existent with the Father. Jesus Christ is therefore God just as the Father and Holy Spirit are God, thus the Word of the Old Testament's creation account is Jesus Christ of the New Testament (John 1:1). Jesus Christ is the Word. His Word is Truth even as He Himself is Truth, the same today as yesterday and for always. Truth then is Jesus Christ Who teaches, "The truth will make you free." 

Truth is fidelity to Jesus Christ, hence Truth is an objective social good meant to be shared by all mankind.  But like their father the devil, subjectivists hate Truth and work to suppress it, and  herein lies the psychological violence which is the evil fruit of moral relativism:

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

In "The Poison of Subjectivism," C.S. Lewis warns that subjectivism will certainly end the human race and "damn our souls."   Because Lewis was an orthodox Christian he agreed with the fundamental teachings of his Lord and savior Jesus Christand the Old Testament prophets that salvation presupposes sin (soul sickness) and the need of repentance, therefore repentance logically presupposes an objectively real Moral Law and need of a Savior.  It follows that Jesus Christ, our Savior, did not die for our opinions:

" He did not say that His blood was the blood of the new and everlasting covenant and that it would be shed for you and for all so that opinions may be forgiven; He did not say, "I am a way, a truth, and a life"; He did not say, "Let he who is without opinion cast the first stone"; He did not say to that dark tempter, "It is said, 'Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God,' but hey, Satan, whatever works for you." (4)

In this light we can see that moral relativism will surely damn our souls because just as it suppresses objective truth and reality, so it eliminates Moral Law, thereby trivializing repentance, imperiling salvation and ending the human race, not by flood as in the days of pre-flood subjectivists, but by fire, reserved for the post-flood world and its "enlightened" subjectivists.

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

Os Guinness comments:

"....it is a point of fact that in many, if not most parts of the Western world, what was still left of the Christian foundations of the West have collapsed or are collapsing.  The Christian church is on the defensive everywhere.  The Christian faith is derided among the thought leaders of our societies, and now we are told it is being abandoned in droves---even if many of the defectors are not really atheists or even agnostic, but in limbo between the....halfway houses of 'believing without belonging' or still 'belonging without believing.'"  (Renaissance: The Power of the Gospel However Dark the Times, Os Guinness, p. 18) 

Erwin Lutzer concurs:

"No nation has turned away from so much light in order to choose darkness. No nation has squandered as many opportunities as we have. We can only call on God for mercy, and if it pleases Him He will come to our aid....if we humble ourselves, weeping for this nation, God may yet intervene and restore decency to this crazed world. Most of all, we should pray that millions would be converted and belong to God forever. People change their minds only when God changes their hearts.”  (Erwin W. Lutzer, Where Do We Go From Here?: Hope and Direction in our Present Crisis)

Guinness sums up the downward spiral of the West:

" Western cultural elites have disregarded God for more than two centuries, but for a while the effects were mostly confined to their own circles. At first, they disregarded God. Then they deliberately desecrated Western tradition and lived in ways that would have spelled disaster if they had been followed more closely. But now in the early twenty-first century, their movement from disregard to desecration to decadence is going mainstream, and the United States is only the lead society among those close to the tipping point.... Soon, as the legalization and then normalization of polyamory, polygamy, pedophilia and incest follow the same logic as that of abortion and homosexuality, the socially destructive consequences of these trends will reverberate throughout society until social chaos is beyond recovery. We can only pray there will be a return to God and sanity before the terrible sentence is pronounced: "God has given them over" to the consequences of their own settled choices." (p. 20)

"... as in the days of Noah....and of Lot (Sodom) so will it be in the days of the Son of Man."   Luke 17: 26-28

A stunning spiritual transformation of consciousness is rapidly shifting Western and American thinking away from the supernatural God of Revelation and biblical religion and toward a'new' pagan/mystical pantheist religion of nature and goddess worship (Gaia), evolution, relativism and androgyny, the pagan ideal.  In his book, "The Making of the New Spirituality: The Eclipse of the Western Tradition," James Herrick calls it the "New Religious Synthesis."

The New Synthesis reverses and inverts each major tenet of God's Revealed Word.  For instance, the Holy Triune God is supplanted by a universal life force called evolution, the principle miracle-producing power of  an evolving man-centered universe infused with divine consciousness.  Moreover, human beings are no longer created but rather the conscious products of the universal life force evolving upward toward a divinity of their own and can now achieve ever-higher levels of consciousness by directing their own evolution.  Man's rational self-consciousness as well as science, the instrument of his autonomous will, supplants the Mind of God and is the first inkling of man's own latent divinity.
 
Additionally, immutable truth, Moral Law, history and Christian-based holidays and tradition are rendered obsolete because the idea of continuous change (evolution) makes them absurd. 
 
The  New Synthesis  is rooted in common mystical experiences and telepathic revelations from disembodied intelligences while 'Science' is divine Reason's instrument which,
 
"...provides theological insight to guide our quest for spiritual awareness and attainment.  Among science's greatest revelations--second only to its confirmation of evolution as the operative principle of the cosmos---is that monism and pantheism are proven by deep inspection of physical matter.  This massively significant discovery confirms ancient ideas about universal unity originally delivered through shamans and mystics and still reflected in tribal spirituality."  (pp. 33-35; 250-251)
 
What all of this means is that the rebellion, apostasy, idolatry and subjectivism that has characterized the modern age since its beginning is actually an ominous neon arrow pointing to the Judgment and end ofthe West and America.   And when these evils finally prevail throughout the world, then as a thief in the night will come the Day of the Lord (2 Pet. 3:10) and the unrepentant soul-sick human race will meet its' allotted fate:

"Their destruction will overtake them while they dream of happiness, and please themselves with vain amusements. There will be no means to escape the terror or the punishment of that day."    However, the Day of the Lord, "will be a happy day to the righteous. They are not in darkness; they are the children of the light. It is the happy condition of all true Christians." (Matthew Henry, commentary on 1 Thessalonians 5:2)

The Day of the Lord----when?

As no man can see what lies beyond the horizon no one can say when the Day of the Lord will be.  So in the light of all of this bad news what are faithful Christians to do?   For one thing, said Guinness, we can recognize that the faithful and orthodox in each tradition, whether Eastern or Roman Catholic and Protestant are actually closer to Jesus and each other than to the liberal subjectivist revisionists in their own traditions.  In other words, a remnant according to the election of grace is slowly but surely emerging from the wreckage.  (Roman 11:5)

Though the final factor in the future is unknown it is sure because we can trust that our Lord will build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. Therefore, as faithful and orthodox believers we can and must repent of our sins, trust in God, stand on His Truth, edify and comfort the saints and proclaim His gospel.  We are to be busy about the Father's business in making disciples and seeing the power of the gospel transform lives.  We must trust in God and His gospel and challenge the darkness with the only hope there is---the hope brought into being through the presence of the promised Holy Spirit (Romans 8:2-25); the future hope of the resurrection of the dead (Acts 23:6); the redemption of the body and of the whole creation (Romans 8:23-25), the return of Christ (Titus 2:11-14) and eternal life and the inheritance of the saints (Titus 3:5-7).

Washington D.C: Hub of Witchcraft

According to long-time national security expert Lt. Col. Robert "Bob" Maginnis (ret.), a senior fellow with the Family Research Council (FRC), there is "a lot of witchcraft" and "hedonism" in Washington, D.C., so much so that when he thinks of Sodom and Gomorrah he often thinks of the nation's capital "in the same thought.”   (FRC’s Lt. Col. Maginnis: There’s 'a Lot of Witchcraft’ in Washington, D.C., Michael Chapman, cnsnews.com, April 24, 2017)

Neo-paganism, witchcraft, and Eastern systems are of the world view of monism which teaches that all that exists is one self-evolved, self-sufficient substance and/or energy field which may be divine spirit or impersonal mind (pantheism) or spiritless physical substance (materialism).

Monism is held in common by all of the world’s ancient mystery religions underlying modern Secular Humanism (evolutionary secular humanism) and occult New Age spirituality, a kind of Cosmic Humanism firmly anchored in Hinduism and Buddhism.  

All of the ancient mysteries were monistic.  Monism originated in the city of Babylon in Mesopotamia and migrated from there to every corner of the world. Hinduism is an offshoot of the original Babylonian monism (via the Aryans of ancient Persia) and Buddhism is an offshoot of Hinduism:

All of the Eastern religions of today are ultimately traceable to ancient Babylon, where the post-Flood rebellion against God began.”  (The New World Religion, Gary Kah, p. 246)

The heart of ancient mystery traditions is the Great Lie of Genesis 3.  Emanating from the heart are four central presuppositions:

1. Monism:  There is no Creator-creature distinction, or distinctions between good and evil, male and female, past and present, immutability and change. Nor is there eternal separation of saved and lost. Thus all men are gods in process of evolution.  From this it follows that all separations (i.e., male from female) and oppositions such as those presented by good and evil are illusory manifestations of the one divine substance (occult reality).  All objects (planets, rivers, trees) and individuals are parts or aspects of the all-inclusive divine one-substance:

The Hindus call it atom-paramatma, Brahmin, and sat-chit-ananda (‘being-consciousness bliss’)   (The Mystery of Death, Tal Brooke, p 97)

2. Man is inwardly divine, one with God in essence. Since there is only one substance or energy field and men are emanations of it, then mans own consciousness provides the specific connecting link.  In experiencing this reality via meditation and other occult techniques, man experiences oneness with the divine.  All forms of occult philosophy are united around the central belief that the inner or real self of man is God:

This is the fundamental form of the primary lie spoken of in Genesis. ‘You will be like God,’ Gen. 3:5, RSV (ibid)

3.  Life’s purpose is to realize the divine within. The path is usually the way of supreme illumination or gnosis (supreme knowledge) reached by spiritual and psychic techniques practiced by craft adepts and adepts of raja or kundalini yoga:

The idea is that the person is a cosmic amnesiac who has forgotten his true divine identity, but the right system will remind him that he is really God after all.  The closer he is to becoming God, the more conscious he becomes.” (ibid, p. 98)

4.  Self-realization leads to psycho-spiritual power.  As an initiate of the craft (witchcraft) or yoga advances upon the path of enlightenment or gnosis he becomes increasingly attuned with the divine ‘one’ and its relationship to the material world of reality, ‘creation.’  Thus as man-god he allegedly becomes master and creator of his own reality.  And since reality is supposedly composed of consciousness, the adept learns to control reality by controlling consciousness.  Therefore, since matter is created or dematerialized with the ease of a divine conjurer the universe is the creation of the man-god:

“It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever.” (Algeny, Jeremy Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy, drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.”  Galatians 5:19-21 

Witchcraft involves the manipulation of the demonic host through incantations, the casting of spells, meditation, visualization, chanting, burning candles and other special rituals.  (1, 2) It can also involve communication with demonic spirits impersonating the dead, sexual perversions, and other evils. The Bible clearly teaches that the dead cannot communicate with the living as pantheism and monism hold as there is a great chasm separating the dead from the the third heaven (2 Cor. 12:2; Luke 16:26), the very dwelling place of God and the living. 

It is well documented that perversions, murder, insanity, possession and other evils, including human sacrifice, occur in Western witchcraft, Satanism and Eastern mysticism (e.g., tantric yoga) as well as pagan and pantheist occult religion in general. In his "Occultism, Witchcraft and Cultural Fashions," the noted cultural anthropologist Mircea Eliade of the University of Chicago refers to the interconnections between European witchcraft and Hindu Tantric yoga. He argues that "even a rapid perusal of the Hindu and Tibetan documents" reveals the connection:

 "As a matter of fact, all the features associated with European witches are – with the exception of Satan and the Sabbath – claimed also by Indo-Tibetan yogis and magicians. They too are supposed to fly through the air, render themselves invisible, kill at a distance, master demons and ghosts, and so on. Moreover, some of (them) boast that they break all the religious taboos and social rules; that they practice human sacrifice, cannibalism, and all manner of orgies, including incestuous intercourse, and that they eat excrement, nauseating animals, and devour human corpses. In other words, they proudly claim all the crimes and horrible ceremonies cited ad nauseum in the western European witch trials." (Psychic Forces, Chapter 22, "The Occult History of Parapsychology," Clifford Wilson and John Weldon, pp. 341-49)

All occultists deal in strange fire and will eventually be consumed by it.   Before it’s too late they need to learn from the sorcerers and witches who came to a saving knowledge of Christ in Acts 19:19: 

 “And many of those who practiced magic brought their books together and began burning them in the sight of all; and they counted up the price of them and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.”

Political Correctness: Public Advocacy of Vice

Robert Reilly, chairman of the Committee for Western Civilization, observes that for any individual, moral failure is hard to live with because of the rebuke of conscience. Habitual moral failure, or vice or sin, can only be lived with by obliterating conscience through rationalization.  Thus the door of the conscience is systematically forced open wider and wider by rationalization until the point is reached where the advocate of vice proudly tolerates every manner of abomination, thereby allowing evils to occur constantly and for whatever reason:

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

Rationalization is a defense mechanism, a form of self-deception that compromises and pollutes conscience so as to make tolerable and acceptable thoughts, motives, feelings, and behaviors that would otherwise be unacceptable. Thus when habitual sinners rationalize, they convince themselves that forbidden idolatry, lies, murder, theft, gross sexual fantasies, and other perverse desires and actions are permissible:

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

Rationalization of evil, or political correctness as it is called, is the wisdom of fallen man. It is earthly, natural, and demonic:

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

When a bad person habitually deceives himself and others, his conscience becomes seared, thereby allowing his harmful or destructive thoughts and behaviors to become justified in his mind. In this way he becomes a self-convinced, zealously indefatigable public advocate of his own moral failures, ill will, envy, greed, and other myriad vices.   Three examples of this are progressive advocacy of sodomy as 'love' deserving rights--- even within the church, trans-genderism with its' advocacy of fluid gender, and the unflagging advocacy of so-called global climate change: 

Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.” Barack Obama

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”  Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation

Over and across America, the unrelenting and determined power of rationalization of evil drives secular progressivism's aggressive war against the Biblically grounded foundations of our nearly dead Constitutional Republic; gives it its demonically revolutionary character and makes its hostile advocates relentless in their pursuit of and advocacy for evil:

"...in such places, evil is commended, praised, and well-thought-of.  Those who do it are applauded..."  (Journey to Hell, John Bunyan, p. 80)

Rationalization in the guise of progressive politics, evolution as scientific fact, global change, environmental justice, gender justice and economic justice may draw its energy from desperation, furious bitterness, jealousy, covetousness and envy but is all the more powerful and tireless for that. 

Since failed rationalization means self-recrimination, it must be avoided no matter the cost--to babies, children, adults, and entire civilizations.  For this reason, the myriad vices being forced upon our culture are not subject to reasoned discourse because 'all vile persons' love their vices:

"…but they do not care to bear their names.  The drunkard loves the sin, but does not love to be called a drunkard.  The thief loves to steal, but he cannot stand to be called a thief; the whore loves to commit immorality, but does not love to be called a whore.  And so Mr. Badman loved to be proud, but could not tolerate being called a proud man.  The fragrance of sin is desirable, but it pollutes and corrupts a man.  To name a man's sin is to put a blot on his honor."   (Bunyan, p.159)

Advocates of vice are not interested in finding objective truth but in maintaining the deceptions that allow them to continue their lies, vile behaviors and destructive agendas.  For them to succeed in this, everyone must submit to their rationalizations or be destroyed by way of demonization---public shaming issuing in baseless accusations of hatred, bigotry, homophobia, and insanity.  This is why revolutionary change is required:

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

And so it must be. If a bad man is going to center his public life on lies, pederasty, beheading aborted babies and selling their body parts or seizing control of all wealth and resources in order to refuse them to hated, envied "others" he had better transform his failures and evil intentions into highly virtuous intentions and moral acts. 

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

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

 

America’s Real Source of Evil: God-Hating Progressivism

In his superbly researched text, “Illiberal Reformers: Race, Eugenics, & American Economics in the Progressive Era,” Thomas C Leonard reveals how deeply in thrall early progressives were to some darkly disturbing ideas.  These run the gamut from utopianism and sheer confidence in their own righteousness to eugenics, race science (evolutionary biology), and the pantheist divinization of nature, history, genes, matter, evolutionary energies, and the state..  Economic progressives viewed the state as a divine instrument because a pantheist god-force worked through it, thus,

 “…was the greatest power for good that existed among men and women.” (Dark Side of Progressivism Exposed: From Eugenics to ‘Race Science,’ Samuel Gregg, CNS News, Feb. 10, 2017)

Intersectionality: The Latest Craze of Leftist Energy Worshippers

Intersectionality is the latest academic craze sweeping the increasingly insane American academy and its' zealous cultic followers:

On the surface, it’s a recent neo-Marxist theory that argues that social oppression does not simply apply to single categories of identity — such as race, gender, sexual orientation, class, etc. — but to all of them in an interlocking system of hierarchy and power. At least, that’s my best attempt to define it briefly. But watching that video helps show how an otherwise challenging social theory can often operate in practice."

"It is operating, in Orwell’s words, as a “smelly little orthodoxy,” and it manifests itself, it seems to me, almost as a religion. It posits a classic orthodoxy through which all of human experience is explained — and through which all speech must be filtered. Its version of original sin is the power of some identity groups over others. To overcome this sin, you need first to confess, i.e., “check your privilege,” and subsequently live your life and order your thoughts in a way that keeps this sin at bay. The sin goes so deep into your psyche, especially if you are white or male or straight, that a profound conversion is required.”  (Is Intersectionality a Religion?  Andrew Sullivan, NYMag, March 10, 2017)

Intersectionality is a recent offshoot of identity politics. In its' turn, identity politics is the product of materially pagan and animistic (i.e., dialectic matter) Marxist cultural determinism and group solidarity (pagan oneness). Cultural determinism is, 

“…identity politics—the politics of radical feminism, queer revolution, and Afro-centrism—which is the basis of academic multiculturalism..a form of intellectual fascism and, insofar as it has any politics, of political fascism as well.” Mussolini and Neo-Fascist Tribalism, David Horowitz, 1998)

"Man in the earliest ages worshipped the serpent because in some mysterious way the serpent symbolized the creative forces in nature..."  (The Worship of Creative Energy as Symbolized by the Serpent, Charles Edward Herring, p. 11)

Cultural determinism was birthed by the idea that man is the product of creative evolutionary energies acting on dialectical (thinking) matter, therefore man’s identity is wholly determined by, for example, skin color (biological race theory) or erotic appetites (varying and ever evolving ‘genders’). In this way of thinking, man is a bio-machine fully caused and determined by creative energies.

Intersectionality is the invention of American professor Kimberle Crenshaw. In essence it is a theory positing the victimization of 'fully caused and determined' women who experience oppression in varying configurations and in varying degrees:

Cultural patterns of oppression are not only interrelated, but are bound together and influenced by the intersectional systems of society. Examples of this include race, gender, class, ability, and ethnicity.” (wikipedia)

Energy worshippers, whether Marxist, Progressive, or perhaps Transhumanist, are modern pagans whose fall is not onto the ground but into the depths of their demon-haunted, ever-darkening imaginations. 

America's Real Source of Evil: God-Hating Progressivism

In his superbly researched text, “Illiberal Reformers: Race, Eugenics, & American Economics in the Progressive Era,” Thomas C Leonard reveals how deeply in thrall early progressives were to some darkly disturbing ideas.  These run the gamut from utopianism and sheer confidence in their own righteousness to eugenics, race science (evolutionary biology), and the pantheist divinization of nature, history, genes, matter, evolutionary energies, and the state..  Economic progressives viewed the state as a divine instrument because a pantheist god-force worked through it, thus,

 “…was the greatest power for good that existed among men and women.”  (Dark Side of Progressivism Exposed: From Eugenics to ‘Race Science,’ Samuel Gregg, CNS News, Feb. 10, 2017)

Excluding and even eugenically exterminating unwanted classes of people was another dark idea. In his “Descent of Man” (1871), Charles Darwin even prophesied that,

 “…the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world.” (ibid)

In ‘America’s Ruling Class’ Angelo Codevilla details the rise of America’s progressive movement.  As far back as 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.”  (America’s Ruling Class---and the Perils of Revolution, Codevilla, July/Aug. 2010, The American Spectator)

As the years passed and their numbers grew 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) 

 Today’s ruling class, from Boston to San Diego, is a God-hating confederacy formed by an educational system that exposes them to the same ideas and gives 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.” 

The faith of America’s Progressive Ruling Class rests on four pillars of sand.   The two most important are evolutionary biology (race science) and Darwinism. 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.” 

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 characterized by depraved consciences and animalistic minds who imagine themselves as gods.  So far from being the rational, scientifically enlightened, morally and intellectually superior beings they imagine themselves to be, America’s Ruling Class are depraved monsters whose distaste for common Americans long ago devolved into hatred which now burns out of control because deplorable “hominids” dared to rebel against their betters and elect Donald Trump.

Two America’s: One Under God the Other Under Ba'al

For more than seventy-five years Godless Progressive Leftists (Gnostic evolutionary humanists), have been stealthily undermining and destroying the foundations of our Biblically-grounded Constitutional Republic with the result that today there are two very distinct and irreconcilable Americas for which the Constitution of 1787 no longer articulates a set of shared principles. In effect, there are two separate and unrelated constitutions – a ‘living, breathing’ constitution of the occult pantheist Left, and the constitution of the Right:

These two constitutions reflect two distinct and unassimilable cultures. The culture of the Left is urban, agnostic, socialist, gay and queer. It fancies itself intellectually and morally superior to the culture of the Right, which is rural, traditionalist, Christian and heterosexual.”   (The United States Cannot Survive as Presently Constituted, Michael Filozof, The American Thinker,Feb. 6, 2017)

 Morally and intellectually superior Leftists, said Filozof, regard conservative,

 “…rural America as the land of snake-handling, gun-toting Klansmen, lying in wait to lynch innocent blacks for infractions as innocuous as jaywalking. Conservatives cannot fathom how any sane person could attend the Folsom Street Fair, the orgy tent at Burning Man, or promote late-term abortion. Some liberal Jews believe that the U.S. has actually elected a neo-Hitler; they fear hiring conservative, Southern plumbers to fix their pipes. Pro-life Christians were elated to have Vice-President Pence address their annual march on Washington, D.C. There is not, and cannot be, any dialogue between these two groups.”

In “The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture,” David Kupelian chronicles the decline and fall of America and shows it was deliberately orchestrated by God-hating progressives. Compared with the decent, law-abiding, morally ordered, child and family-friendly nation it once was, today’s progressive dominated America is a different country altogether.  It is deeply and angrily divided and,

“.... unable to deal with crises foreign or domestic, the world’s greatest debtor nation with 50 million people on food stamps, rampant divorce and family breakdown, unprecedented sexual anarchy with 110 million with STDs, almost 60 million abusing alcohol, and over 70 million taking mood-altering drugs. On so many levels, America is becoming ever more “bizarre”—diametrically opposed to logic and common sense. Although America’s bizarro transformation has been in progress for decades, it burst into full bloom in the age of Obama. ” (p. 10)

Here’s how retired Marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North describes America’s demon-haunted wilderness, where according to the U.S. government North is a racist, bigoted extremist (state enemy) because:

 ” I am a Christian and meet regularly with other Christians to study Gods word. My faith convinces me the prophecies in the Holy Bible are true. I believe in the sanctity of life, oppose abortion and want to preserve marriage as the union of a man and woman. I am a veteran with skills and knowledge from military training and combat. I own several firearms, frequently shoot them, buy ammunition and consider efforts to infringe on my Second Amendment rights to be wrong and unconstitutional. I frequently support the sovereignty of the United States, am deeply concerned about our economy, increasingly higher taxes, illegal immigration, soaring unemployment and actions by our government that will bury my children beneath a mountain of debt. Apparently, all this makes me a ‘right-wing extremist.’ At least that’s what it says in the April 7, 2009 ‘assessment’ issued by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security.” (Ibid, pp. 14-15)

Darwin is the Gnostic Progressive Left's weird anti-Moses who liberated them from the Cross and led them back into the demon-haunted wilderness where they became the servants of the spirit of death.   The serpent first whispered progressive leftism in the garden (Gen. 3:5) and sealed it with the promise of the kingdoms of the world on the condition that progressives bow down to the serpent. (Matthew 4:9) Thus within the philosophical system of leftism and at the blackened heart of their psychology, hatred of the Holy Triune God is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions.

"And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err.” Jeremiah 23:13

There is nothing new and certainly nothing scientific, enlightened, and morally superior about Leftist America and its rejection of the Holy Creator God in favor of Ba'al, rejection of creation ex nihilo in favor of permutations of the Babylonian evolutionary cosmogony, nor its subsequent fall into relativism, madness, pagan superstitions, depravity, other evils and damnation:

  "Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the Lord’s anger...they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths."  Judges 2:10-13

 From the antediluvians to Old Testament Israelis to our own age the thing that has been,

 "... it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."  (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Leftists are the depraved "self" and nature worshipping counter-culture, counter-tradition rebels of society. Comprising the destructive mob under direction of occult Progressive pagan elite-snobs they are the deceitful children of rebellion:

 "Against whom do you jest?  Against whom do you open wide your mouth and stick out your tongue?  Are you not children of rebellion, offspring of deceit, who inflame among yourselves among the oaks, under every luxuriant tree, who slaughter the children in ravines, under the clefts of the crags?"  (Isaiah 57: 4-5)

When America’s Progressive Leftist counterpart, the European ruling class represented by German Chancellor Angela Markel, French President Francois Hollande, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Liechtenstein Prime Minister Adrian Hasler, and Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern took part in the opening of the world's longest tunnel under the Swiss Alps, the ceremony was acted out under the baleful gaze of the All Seeing Eye, the symbol of Ba'al.

As the European ruling class looked on, graphically sexual and blatantly satanic rituals were performed featuring a baby-faced Lucifer (Horus) and a horned, goat-headed devil, symbol of the Void, or Mind of the Universe and its seething serpent-powered evolutionary energies.   The androgynous horned deity was adored by scantily clad figures repeatedly prostrating themselves before him/her. As the horned god appeared horrific wailing and screaming was heard over the audio system. The horned devil simulated sexual acts with several of the male and female performers, many of whom were androgynous. (Europe’s top leaders watch bizarre satanic ceremony opening world’s longest tunnel, Life Site News, Jun. 6, 2016)

Here is seen defiant rejection of the Holy Creator God, Truth and Moral Law resulting in the deification of man, unfettered evil, insanity, worship of divine evolving forces of nature, shameless sexual abandon, sadism, and child sacrifice practiced by depraved mass man and the cultivated but thoroughly debauched crowd, the elite god-men of society, and all of it "rolled up into one outdoor whore house of death." ("Nazi Oaks," Pastor R. Mark Musser, p. 49)

Welcome to the syncretistic occult pagan and pantheist spirituality of the global ruling class.   The baby Lucifer (Horus) symbolizes the Aeon of Horus in which the Godhead passes to the individual (initiate) who is mastering the ancient magic way of activating the god-within.  This latest Aeon sees the end of the power and authority of religions, governments, big institutions and dictatorships which,

 “…all begin to fail spectacularly.  The individual will have the opportunity to become fully liberated, in charge of their own spiritual destiny.”   Paul Dunne, The Magic of the New Aquarian Age and the New Aeon of Horus

Revelation reports that at some point the whole world will become drunk on the wine of Babylon (occult Progressive spirituality), its' deluded celebrants convinced of their own deity when in reality they've received the mark of Satan.   For them the Gates of Hell open wide.

The Liberal World Order Under Assault, Warned Vice President Biden

In an epic final speech to global elites at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Vice President Joe Biden warned that with the election of Trump the liberal world order is under assault by destructive forces.  

Biden went after Russian President Vladimir Putin by name, saying he is using "every tool in his power to whittle away the European project, and undermine Western democracies.” Biden accused Putin of wanting to "roll back decades of progress."  (In an epic final speech, Joe Biden warns that the progressive democratic world order is at risk of collapse, Jay Yarow, CNBC, Jan. 18, 2017)

Modern liberalism, or Progressive Leftism is a godless, philosophically pagan form of heretical Jewish and Christian elements and heretical Protestant liberalism's upside-down, anti-creation account grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary, apocalyptic proclamation of a coming new order based in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, and finally transgender god-man and in the perfectibility of this fallen world. (1)

Chiliasm in Greek means 'thousand years' and is primarily a godless version of the millennial belief expressed in some Christian denominations that there will be a paradise on earth where Christ will reign for a thousand years prior to the final judgment and future eternal state. 

The contemporary chiliastic-evolutionary movement is the Liberal or Scientific Technocratic Dictatorship. 

The world is being actively transformed by an amoral occult pagan power elite and their minions according to an economical/political/social/religious philosophy called Technocracy, and it is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world:  

"Technocracy is being sponsored and orchestrated by a global elite led by David Rockefeller's and Zbigniew Brzezinski's Trilateral Commission...Originally started in the early 1930's, Technocracy is antithetical to every American institution that made us into the greatest nation on earth.  It eschews property rights, obsoletes capitalism, hates politicians and traditional structures, and promises a lofty utopian dream made possible only if engineers, scientists, and technicians are allowed to run society.  When Aldous Huxley penned Brave New World in 1932, he accurately foresaw this wrenching transformation of society and predicted that the end of it would be a scientific dictatorship unlike anything the world has ever seen." (Preface, Technocracy Rising, Patrick Wood) 

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

Like its' 20th century counterparts, Technocracy is the evolutionary chiliastic expression of a coming Golden Age that is the culminating hubris of Promethean god-men who having 'murdered' the Christian God mean to purify and remake man and creation.

In "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," highly respected political philosopher Eric Voegelin (1901-85) identifies many modern Gnostic movements.  They range from Comte's positivism, to Progressivism, Hegelianism, Masonry, Marxist Communism, Nazi Socialism, Schleiermacher's doctrine of faith, Protestant liberalism, and Luciferian Theosophy.  

In an upside-down exegesis typical of Gnosticism, Helena Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy, leading Masonic thinker, and important formulator of chiliastic evolution wrote in her book, "The Secret Doctrine" volume II, 

 "...it is but natural...to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind..."  (Theosophy University Press, 1888, p. 243, 513)

 Chiliastic-evolutionary systems are modern forms of ancient and very "elitist" pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnosticism that assigns the Holy Triune God to hell and instead worships Lucifer (Baphomet/Ba'al).   Furthermore, it teaches that salvation is attained through the 'elitist' knowledge of Gnostic teachers such as gurus, god-men, certain scientists other contemporary spiritual guides who supposedly possess the knowledge of the Gnostic cosmogony. 

With Satan as the spiritual father of an army of God-hating Gnostic pagans, it is no wonder that modern Gnostic systems have so far produced every dictatorial, genocidal utopian movement of the 20th century and underpin contemporary spiritually pagan, chiliastic New Age and Technocratic globalist hopes and visions. 

In his article, "Leftism a Radical Faith," Bruce Riggs notes that much of the political history of the extended 20th century is that of massive extinctions of citizenries by their dictatorial governments: 

 "Take the engineered mass starvations, torture chambers, firing squads, and gulags of Lenin and Stalin; Nazi gas chambers; Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge killing fields; the genocides of Mao's "Great Leap Forward,"; and the tyrannical North Korean Sung dynasty, and one will find that over one hundred million people have been slaughtered." (2)  

The authors of the Black Book of Communism point to the Darwinian "biological and zoological" strain of thinking as the engine of evil that proved itself a most effective means of denying the humanity of millions of victims: 

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

The devilish Gnostic rebel Vladimir Lenin concurs.   Godless Darwinism put an end to the belief that human, animal, and vegetable kinds bear no relation to one another and,

 "that they were created by God, and hence immutable."  (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9) 

Twentieth century Gnostic pagan god-states systematically dehumanized and murdered millions of people in order to create an imagined earthly Eden purified of evil, and this is clearly insane.  Yet this evil religion whose spiritual father is Satan continues today as a God-hating, globally elitist, evolutionary progressive, politico-centric faith entirely disdainful of orthodox Christian and faithful Jewish beliefs and contemptuous of those who subscribe to them.  

 In short, the “liberal world order” is grounded in Gnostic chiliastic evolution, a Satanic spiritually pagan religion with the look of a religious inquisition that represents the 20th century heretical version of orthodox Christianity.  Unless we grasp this crucial point the nature of this devilishly evil religion will elude us. (3)   

Rise of Satan's Chiliastic Technocratic Utopia

In "False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion," Lee Penn wans that the United Religions Initiative (URI) and the Gaia initiative represents the spiritually pagan religious facet of the coming Technocratic New World Order.  The URI is a United Nations organization that to a significant extent is animated by Satanic Gnostic chiliastic evolution. In preparation for the coming new order, a 'new' pagan spirituality is under construction of which the Earth Charter is set to become its Holy Writ. 

Crafted by a conclave of 'Wise Persons' headed by former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev, its benign sounding verbiage,

 "and symbolic nature camouflage its dangerous purpose.  The Charter is intended to become a universally adopted creed that will psychologically prepare the world's children to accept the necessity of world government to save the environment.  It is also an outrageous attempt to indoctrinate your children in the UN's New Age paganism." (The New World Religion, William F. Jasper, New American, 2002)  

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

 Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to the ambitions of Technocratic global elites.  Thus after more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in schools, seminaries, pulpits, media, academia and elsewhere global elite god-men like Jeremy Rifkin are finally free to declare that evolution is a living "Mind" enlarging its domain as it evolves up and through the "chain of species."  Moreover, now that the evolution god "Mind" reigns supreme, global elitists no longer feel like guests in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make their behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules: 

 "It is our creation now. We make the rules (and) establish the parameters of reality.  We create the world (and) no longer have to justify our behavior...We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever." (Algeny, Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

 Here we see that in the completely delusional, entirely depraved (Jer. 51: 17-18), and ultimately demonically orchestrated global elite dream-scape it is not the personal Triune God who has created and sustains the world.  No, it is each Gnostic man-god who creates and sustains his own world and meaning in every moment out of his own divine consciousness.  In other words, since according to the devil the substance of the Holy Creator God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos, including the mind of man, then by occult magic rituals such as transcendental meditation and brain-altering drugs, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls the cosmos because he controls "Mind."  The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man. 

Given the likelihood that an ancient evil intelligence has crawled inside Rifkin and other Technocratic god-men the fact that New Age spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through mediums such as Blavatsky, Bailey, Benjamin Crème, Robert Muller, Neale Donald Walsh and Barbara Marx Hubbard, to name but a few, should come as no surprise.  Penn observes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a Gnostic progressive vision of apocalyptic spiritualized totalitarianism that includes: 

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

2. Highly evolved humans are gods.

3. Advocacy for extreme population control

4. Concentrated hate directed at faithful Judaism, orthodox evangelical Protestantism, and Roman Catholicism

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

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

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

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

 In other words, because orthodox Christianity teaches that there is an unbridgeable gulf between the Triune God and His creation that is only breached by Jesus Christ then idolaters like Jeremy Rifkin do not and cannot share the substance of the Triune God as pantheism teaches.  According to Christianity man is radically different from the Lord and atonement, purification and mediation is achieved only through Jesus Christ, Who rose from the dead.  This means that neither Rifkin nor any other Technocratic global elitist is god but rather an evil idolater speeding along the broad, smooth highway to hell.  

 All modern Gnostic pagan movements share the same chiliastic goal: a coming "new pantheist order" and "new pagan god-man" completely purified of all evil and existing in oneness with the evolutionary god force.  This means extermination of all faithful Christians and Jews and other dissenters who refuse to become one with the god of forces.  

 Purification also extends to Biblical moral standards, sexual ethics, traditional marriage and traditions derived therefrom since they have been by-passed by the ongoing process of evolution.  These will be changed just as all distinctions between nonlife forms, life forms and gender will be blurred in the idea of evolution from molecule to ape to man and woman to transgender to androgynous god-man.  In the same way, all distinctions between good and evil, nations and religions will be merged in the chiliastic vision of worldly purification. 

In conclusion, Gnostic chiliastic evolution is the anti-gospel of Satan, thus the antithesis of the glorious Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ.  So powerful is the stranglehold of Satan's anti-gospel on millions of darkened Western minds that it has imaginatively inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism, meaning that the millions of people whose minds are in bondage to Satan and his legions can no longer think right-side up.  With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by the evolution god it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but are instead gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.  

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

Why Progressive ‘Elites’ Suffer from Cognitive Dissonance

Dozens of celebrities turned out to party in highstyle until 4am at the White House in a lavish, 'a-lister' only farewell bash featuring the likes of Paul McCartney, Meryl Streep and SJP. The strictly VIP guest list were banned from recording inside the party where,

“… Barack and Michelle served chicken and waffles to weary partygoers in the early hours of Saturday morning…The bash was well attended by artists, philanthropists, activists, and executives…”  (Inside the Obama’s Final Star-Studded Bash, Daily Mail, Jan. 7, 2016)

The evening however, was likely marred by feelings of bitterness and resentment since for thefirst family and their Progressive ‘elite’ friends the inauguration of Donald Trump---the man they loathe, fear, and who makes them physically sick because his presidency means the end of their utopia of the sexually perverse and shiftless--is in less than two weeks,  

In his supremely insightful, thoroughly hilarious book, “The Kindergarten of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks,” the political comedian Evan Sayet rips away the holier-than-thou pretenses of Progressive Liberal snobs to expose them as,

 “…morally and intellectually retarded to the level of the five-year-old child..”  This is not hyperbole: “it’s a diagnosis. And it’s a diagnosis that…is shared by a good many others…”  (back cover)

Sayet shines brilliant light onto America’s culture war to reveal its true, albeit hideously evil nature. The real combatants are hostile Progressive ‘elites”—pleasure-seeking, shiftless superior-snobs typified by the Obama’s and their so-called ‘ a-lister’ friends, “who don’t do or make anything.”--- waging war against the kind of people who do “and make everything.”  Ayn Rand described it as a war waged by the “Looters” against the “Producers” while Peter Schweizer described it as a war being waged by the “Takers” against the “Makers.”  (p. 83)

 Progressive Liberals suffer from cognitive dissonance. The key to understanding the cause of their cognitive dissonance and why their thinking leaves them with no choice but to side at every turn with all that is evil, failed, abnormal, and wrong and reject everything good, normal, right, and successful is their rejection of their Holy Creator and His objective Truth:

To those who don’t do anything or make anything…the truth not only serves no purpose, it is, in fact, the enemy.”  

Truth is not just undesirable but evil since without the one true God—who they hate-- objective truth is unknowable, and since it is unknowable,

“…those who seek it are fools and those who claim to have found it are bigots, phobics or greedy liars.” (p. 84)

To godless Progressive Utopian Looters, the good man who recognizes objective truth is undesirable because the one true God and His objective truth are evil.  Objective truth is evil because Progressives, who suffer from cognitive dissonance foolishly choose to reject Truth and believe the Lie because objective truth stands in the way of utopia, a sinners paradise.  

Progressive utopians are modern Gnostic nihilists from the void whose agenda of hatred of Jehovah, objective Truth and righteous people is advanced through an infernal dialectic of lies, propaganda, trickery, magic science, evolution, progress, change, choice and deceivableness of unrighteousness,

“.... because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” (2 Thessalonians 2:10) “And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.”    John 3:19

Why Progressive Christianity is not Christian At All

Still reeling from the election in which Donald Trump was elected president, several progressive Christians pondered the necessary steps to draw a stronger contrast between their brand of kindhearted progressive Christianity, and the kind of conservative, evangelical Christianity that helped elect Donald Trump:

The responses were predictably representative of left-wing Christianity, which centered on re-emphasizing social justice issues and identity politics as the “loving,” compassionate, anti-Trumpian counterpart to the hate-filled Christianity of the right. Also predictably representative was the tone of unearned moral superiority in the responses of the progressive Christians interviewed – and progressive Christians in general.”  (Progressive Christians to Take Back Their Faith After Election, Derryck  Green, The Aquila Report)

Progressive Christianity is not true Christianity at all but rather a species of pagan materialism calling itself Christianity. Materialism belongs to the family of Naturalism, which refers to the view that nature (or matter) is the Ultimate Substance (i.e., star stuff according to Carl Sagan) out of which the universe and all life evolved and is made, thus "all is one."   C. S. Lewis describes naturalism as a box with its top sealed tightly closed in order to keep out the Triune God and the supernatural realm.  The ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Ionians, and Aztecs were, for example, naturalists.  In this view there is but one realm (the material or natural) as opposed to Christianity's creation model with its two interacting realms: natural (the seen) and supernatural (the unseen).

Because “all is one,” or in “solidarity,” the linchpin of Progressive Christianity, as with secular Leftism, is cultural determinism, the parent of identity politics and group solidarity.  In its turn, cultural determinism was birthed by the Darwinian idea that man is but a product of evolution—a soulless hominid, and therefore his identity is genetically determined by for example, his skin color or his sexual and/or erotic preferences.  This proposition rejects the concepts of the human spirit/soul, personhood, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience (paired with personal accountability and responsibility) because it emphatically denies the existence of the God of the Bible.  

Consequently, and by extension, it also rejects the first principles of our liberty enumerated in the Declaration of Independence.  These are our "unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”     Progressive Leftism (Marxism) must reject these because these principles of liberty "are endowed by our Creator," who made man in His image.    

Cultural determinism, said former red-diaper baby David Horowitz, is identity politics—

“…the politics of radical feminism, queer revolution, and Afro-centrism—which is the basis of academic multiculturalism (communism)…a form of intellectual fascism and, insofar as it has any politics, of political fascism as well.” (Mussolini and Neo-Fascist Tribalism: Up from Multiculturalism, David Horowitz)

In this light, it becomes clear why astute observers realize that Progressive Christianity is more about being properly positioned and seen as against manufactured evils,

"....how “moral” and “religious” they look to other like-minded people choosing ‘love’ over ‘hate’ – rather than genuine concern for the people/groups these “evils,” it’s claimed, negatively effect. It’s self-congratulatory virtue vanity, it’s empty, and it violates Jesus’ admonition against practicing one’s righteousness before men instead of calling those they claim to represent to a higher standard of living as disciples of Christ." (Derrick Green)

 

 

Sharia Police No Longer Illegal in Germany nor Satanism in the U.S.A.

Under direction of evolutionary humanist Western elites, godless, debauched Western Europe is experiencing an invasion of mainly Muslim males as part of a replacement population for what European elites term a 'New Europe." Now a German court has ruled that a group of Islamists did not break the law in forming “sharia police” street patrols and telling people to stop drinking, gambling and listening to music.  In other European cities such as Copenhagen, London, and Hamburg, “sharia patrols” consisting of sometimes violent young Salafists are also on patrol.  (‘Sharia police’ are not illegal, rules German court, Europe Israel News, Nov. 23, 2016)

On this side of the ocean in godless, thoroughly debauched America, a Satanist group has been given official permission to meet in a public school at the end of the school day. An ’After School Satan Club (ASSC)’ meeting was held at Sacramento Elementary in Portland, Oregon on November 16th, 2016. The previous day, at Parkrose Middle School (also in Portland), the Satanic Temple made a presentation that was supposed to be open to the community and press but was not. The second ASSC is set to meet at Point Defiance Elementary School in Tacoma on Wednesday, December 14th. Approved in September, the ASSC, seeks to provide an alternative to other after-school religious groups. ASSC chapters are meeting in Atlanta and Tucson, and the movement may gain momentum.  (Satan’s Civil Rights, Dr. Peter Jones)

Nihilism Means Death of Western Civilization

In his New York Times bestseller, "The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality," Andre Comte-Sponville, one of France's preeminent atheist philosophers observes that even though Western and American civilization has become nonreligious it is nevertheless profoundly rooted in transcendent Biblical morality and traditions. That nihilist scientism and dehumanizing evolution have all but supplanted the Triune God and Biblical beliefs pleases yet simultaneously frightens Sponville as he clearly sees that if Western civilization entirely ceases to be Christian it will fall into nihilism. And if we believe that nothing remains,

"...we might as well throw in the towel at once. We would have nothing left to oppose to either fanaticism from without or to nihilism from within – and, contrary to what many people seem to think, nihilism is the primary danger. We would belong to a dead civilization, or at least a dying one....” (pp. 28-29)

In other words, with no Authoritative God above, W. Europeans have no higher authority to appeal to, meaning they are no longer able to say to Muslims, "this is a Christian civilization, not Muslim, and you're not allowed to impose Sharia upon us."   But W. Europeans 'killed' the Triune God long ago and are now left with nothing "to oppose to either fanaticism from without (i.e. Sharia) or nihilism (humanist elites) from within."

Currently, many segments of equally godless American society place hope in President-Elect Donald Trump that he and the right people will be able to make America great again.   While some improvements  may result, it simply is not possible for any man to save godless Americans from their own bad choices and their socially destructive consequences. This means that when for millions of Western and American nihilists the God of Revelation does not exist then they are no longer accountable to their Maker for their actions here in this world thus are free to be evil, and ecstatic with the voluptuous delight of destruction which rolls humans into satanic depths, the godless keep pushing society to the brink of social chaos, breakdown and suicide.

If Western and American nihilists continue to set the God of Revelation aside in favor of an anarchy of selfishness and what they really do know are lies and empty, shallow, meaningless evil, then a tyranny of evil, perhaps in the form of  Islam and oppressive Sharia police or militant Satanism, will come upon us swiftly and terribly.  

But there is another path before us: the way of repentance, decency and God's Divine Truth. Jesus Christ is the Way, Truth, and Life (John 14:6) and only His eternally unchanging Truth will set us free.  However, people will either embrace Truth and goodness or willfully deny that Truth and goodness exist, thereby self-destruct on the altar of The Lie. On that choice hangs the eternal destiny of all people. (Mat. 13:49)

Why Hillary's Stunned Supporters Weep, Wail, and Riot in the Streets

According to Washington Post writer Aaron Blake, most every Hillary Clinton supporter in this country is probably stunned and crying right now.(1) When not crying, tens of thousands are marching through the streets of America's largest cities, throwing things, shouting obscenities, and in one case, shooting bystanders. Additionally, progressives are threatening to stage a nation wide shut-down on President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration day. (2) 

For more than sixty years Godless Progressives have been quietly marching through America's Christian grounded worldview disseminating institutions, seizing control and corrupting and Humanizing them in order to use them to poison the minds of gullible, emotionally-needy Americans.  

Together with Western Satanism, Progressive Leftism is a form of Humanism whose primary doctrine is evolution. In a 1980 essay entitled Humanism: The Global Ideology, published by the Trilateral Observer, Humanism is defined as a secular, non-theistic (atheistic) religion that believes man is capable of self-fulfillment, ethical conduct and salvation without supernatural intervention. 

Patrick Wood, author of Technocracy Rising, writes that today Humanism is being “taught” throughout the business world by the Aspen Institute, particularly to the multinational corporation community:

" The major financiers of Aspen also are the major financiers of Trilateralism, and no less than seven members of the Trilateral Commission also serve at the Aspen Institute."

"The Aspen Institute was founded in 1949 by Professor Giuseppe Borgese, Chancellor Robert M. Hutchins (both of University of Chicago) and Walter Paepcke, a Chicago businessman. In 1957, Robert O. Anderson became chairman, and has been its guiding force ever since. In 1969, chairmanship switched to Joseph E. Slater, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and formerly of the Ford Foundation."

"The two leading foundations contributing to Aspen are Atlantic-Richfield (ARCO) and the Rockefeller Foundation."

"Moreover, the largest single institutional shareholder in ARCO is Chase Manhattan (4.5%) and the largest individual shareholder is Robert O. Anderson, who is also on the board of directors of Chase Manhattan Bank."

"The Markle Foundation (a substantial Aspen backer) is less well known but leads us back to New York banks — in this case to the Morgan Guarantee group. Markle Foundation chairman is Charles F. Biddle, also chairman of the credit policy group of Morgan Guarantee Trust. Walter H. Page is president of Morgan Guarantee Trust and president of J.P. Morgan. Another director, William M. Rees, is a director of First National City Bank."

"In short, it seems the private financing for the Aspen Institute comes from the international banks in New York City, and more specifically, from foundations controlled by Rockefeller and Morgan interests."  (Global Religion for Global Governance, Patrick Wood)

As the Observer article states, Marxist Communism (leftism) is a humanistic doctrine; a branch from the godless tree of Humanism.  In a probing analysis of Marxist Communism, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyer described it as the state form taken by a materialist pagan faith, 

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

Humanism is an ancient pagan and evolutionary mystical pantheist creed.  Its roots,

"....go back to at least fifth century B.C. to the Greek philosopher Protagoras who said, 'Man is the measure of all things.' During the period of the Enlightenment, philosophers such as Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), Georg Hegel (1770-1831) and slightly later Karl Marx (1818-1883), developed humanistic doctrines that have worked their way into the 20th century in the form of Humanism, Marxism, Socialism, Communism, Collectivism and Rationalism."  (Global Religion For Global Governance, Patrick Wood, technocracy.news)

All forms of Humanism are promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with spirits, astral plane travels, totalitarian aspirations, subjectivism (moral relativism), and Illuminism, an ancient occult mystery religion that teaches that man,

"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)  

The fundamental premise of contemporary Western Satanism and evolutionary Progressive spirituality is the lie first whispered to Eve in the Garden, that is, the idea of man 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 (i.e., gnosis), and intuition. Since Humanists stand beyond good and evil they are morally perfect.  As they are the uncreated products of evolution they are not fallen but rather evolving ever upward away from their ape ancestry toward perfection, therefore they need 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 and idolatry, plain and simple. And there is no greater example of the arrogance of the god delusion than Progressive and Western Satanic Humanism.

Today's Humaniized Hillary supporters are the first generation whose minds are fully poisoned.  Thus they weep, wail and riot because they are mind-poisoned dupes who have bought into the utopian fairytale promised them by lying Progressive Leftists.  But their dream has crashed and burned because with Trump’s stunning victory Obama and his leftist social-engineers have lost the chance to lock in a Progressive socialist vision of a Humanized America, one that is "educated and pragmatist, multicultural, cosmopolitan and globalist.”  Trump’s victory means that their socialist world order has slipped through their fingers. Just four more years of a Democrat in the White House would have made much of how Obama reshaped the government irreversible.  (Obama Reeling from Gut Punch of Trump Win, Edward Isaac-Dovere, Politico, Nov. 9, 2016)   

Hillary and Obama are evolutionary Progressive Leftists and view themselves as genetically evolved hence superior to America’s great flyover hominids, the great unevolved gene pool of unwashed masses who bitterly cling to their Bibles, guns, and Constitution.   But as product of evolution, Progressives , like their Satanic counterparts, are not the seed of the Triune God but the seed of a Godless universe of evolving energies and the Brotherhood of Darkness, thus don’t hold themselves bound by God, His laws, commandments, our Constitution or any other laws that inconvenience them.   If Hillary had won, she would have finished the Progressive goal of trashing our Rule of Law and forced her dream of open borders upon us. Then, like her W. European counterparts whose master is Baal, she would have imported a replacement population, one as amoral, shiftless, and violent as she and her followers. 

Why do Progressives fear and hate their own countrymen and seek to replace them with another population?  Because they believe that non-Humanist, non-socialist countries are mainly composed of irredeemable genetically evil, racist, homophobic oppressors and their minority victims.   The alleged causes of this evil situation are faith in the Triune God and His created order (i.e., He made them man and woman), the economic system of free-market capitalism and ownership of private property.  All of these evils are viewed by Leftists as the root of homophobia, racism, sexism, extremism, imperialism, poverty, and all manner of social injustice.  This is why, according to Progressive Leftists, the United States is the historic standard-bearer of Christianity and all free-market and private property systems and is therefore thoroughly evil.

Since the promise of a socially and economically just, gender-fluid world order of happiness, plenty and ease can only be ushered in on the ashes of the United States, the modern left understands that in order to capture the hearts and minds of Americans it must deliberately deceive them, morally corrupt them, dumb them down and poison them against conservative Americans.  

Because the left is already thoroughly corrupt it simply presents its murderous totalitarian objective—the uncompromising destruction of the United States—in the non-threatening language of traditional Western values such as human rights, civil liberties, and financial welfare for the poor.

Deception is a proven method that works. Thus the socialist presidential candidate Norman Thomas once predicted:

The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

In “The Threat We Face: what is the nature of the adversary we are up against?” David Horowitz argues that Leftists, and in particular, President Obama, his chief operative Valerie Jarrett and his chief political strategist David Axelrod all came out of the same Communist left and the same radical new left as he did, and “all have remained heart and soul a part” of it:

 “ As someone who turned his back on that destructive movement, I can say with confidence that they have not. If a person belongs to an organization or is the supporter of an idea that they come to see as destructive or evil, the first thing they will want to do when they leave is to warn others against it, to warn them of the dangers it represents. If a person does not do this – that tells me that he or she hasn’t left the destructive movement or abandoned the pernicious idea but has just put another face on them. Instead of calling themselves communists or socialists they call themselves liberals and progressives. This camouflage is very old. I never once heard my parents and their party friends refer to themselves as Communists. They were progressives – and registered Democrats.” (Frontpagemag.com, October 9, 2013)

Horowitz outlines four defining features of the left:

1. Alienation from country:

 “If you ask progressives about their patriotic feeling, they will tell you that they don’t think of themselves first as Americans but as “citizens of the world.”

2. Corruption: the key to understanding the left is its instinctive, practiced, and indispensable dishonesty.

3. Contempt for and rejection of the past is the third feature. Progressives contemptuously disregard the past, which is real, and focus exclusively on an imaginary evolutionary ascent or future: 

 “To understand why this is important, think of progressives as a species of religious fundamentalists planning a redemption. Like fundamentalists they look at the world as fallen – a place corrupted by racism, sexism and class division. But the truly religious understand that we are the source of corruption and that redemption is only possible through the work of a Divinity. In contrast, progressives see themselves as the redeemers, which is why they are so dangerous. Because they regard those who oppose them as the eternally damned. Progressives are on a mission to create the kingdom of heaven on earth by redistributing income and using the state to enforce politically correct attitudes and practices in everyone’s life. They want to control what you do, and who you are, and even what you eat. For your own good, of course.”

4. Since Progressives see themselves as saving the world – or “saving the planet” as they would prefer — they regard politics as a religious war.  This explains why they are so rude and nasty toward anyone who disagrees with or dissents against their politically correct panaceas.  And of course if they had the power the punishments would be far more severe, and that is why,

“...the politics of personal destruction is their favorite variety, why they are verbal assassins and go directly for the jugular, and why they think nothing of destroying the reputations of their opponents and burying them permanently. And that is why they can perform their character assassinations without regrets?” After all, why,” apologize when you did it for the good of a world transforming cause?”

 Hillary’s weeping, wailing, rioting supporters don’t realize that Progressive Leftists are malignant, treacherous, God-hating narcissists who love no one but ‘self’ and routinely use, abuse, and throw dupes under the bus when they’re done with them.   Had Hillary supporters gotten what they wanted, their euphoria would have ended in a nightmare of betrayal and grief soon enough.  At the very least, Trump's victory saved Hillary's ignorant, hatred-spewing, ungrateful supporters from this fate.

Progressive Leftism: The Serpent’s Blood-Soaked Ideology of Deception, Malice, and Madness

Regarding Donald Trump's private sexual comments and the Leftist generated hysteria surrounding them, we must understand the indispensable role hysteria plays on the left, said Dennis Prager. The left is always in major crisis mode. And in nearly every case, the crisis is either wildly exaggerated or simply false.  For example:

No one denies that there are racist cops. What is hysteria is the left's claim that innocent blacks are routinely shot to death by racist cops. “ As well, the widespread “protests against the name Washington "Redskins" were pure left-wing hysteria -- ended only by the revelation through polling that the vast majority of American Indians couldn't care less about the name. “   “The examples are endless: from the alleged epidemic of heterosexual AIDS in America and preschool molestation scares in the '80s to the wildly exaggerated dangers of secondhand smoke and the baseless fears about electronic cigarettes. We are regularly forced to endure a new left-wing manufactured, media-supercharged hysteria.”  (Trump’s Comments: The Latest Left-Wing Hysteria, Dennis Prager, Townhall, Oct. 11, 2016)

What is Progressive Leftism? 

DiscovertheNetworks.com provides the following important background information about Leftism:

Around the 1830s, a faction of French liberals gravitated toward Romanticism and the philosophy of the late Rousseau, proclaiming that capitalism, private property, and the increasing complexity of modern society were agents of moral decay -- both for the individual and for society at large. This is essentially the worldview that has made its way, through history, into the collective mind of the modern left; it is a worldview calling for a revolution that not only will topple the existing capitalist order and punish its corrupt leaders, but that also will replace that order with a socialist regime where the utopian ideals of perfect justice and equality will reign. Such an ambition can be put into effect only by a totalitarian state with the authority to micromanage every facet of human life, precisely the end-point toward which the policies and crusades of the modern left are directed.”

The contemporary progressive left holds that non-socialist societies are composed largely of racist, homophobic oppressors and their oppressed victims:

"The alleged cause of this social arrangement is the economic system of free-market capitalism, which is viewed by the left as the root of all manner of social ills and vices -- racism, sexism, alienation, homophobia, imperialism. In the calculus of the left, capitalism is an agent of tyranny and exploitation that presses its boot upon the proverbial necks of a wide array of victim groups -- blacks and other minorities, women, homosexuals, immigrants, and the poor, to name but a few. That is why according to the left, the United States (historically the standard-bearer of all capitalist economies) can only do wrong.”

The modern left understands that in order to capture the hearts and minds of Americans it must deliberately deceive them, and because it is thoroughly corrupt, it simply presents,

"...its totalitarian objective -- the uncompromising destruction of the status quo -- in the non-threatening lexicon of traditional Western values; that is, it must cite, as its animating purpose, the promotion of such lofty ideals as “human rights,” “civil rights,” “civil liberties,” and above all, “social justice,” or the “correction” of the free market’s inherent inequalities through political interventions of a Marxist nature.”

Deception is a proven method that works. Thus the socialist presidential candidate Norman Thomas once predicted:

The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

In “The Threat We Face: what is the nature of the adversary we are up against?” David Horowitz argues that Leftists, and in particular, President Obama, his chief operative Valerie Jarrett and his chief political strategist David Axelrod all came out of the same Communist left and the same radical new left as he did, and “all have remained heart and soul a part” of it:

“….and all have remained heart and soul a part of it. As someone who turned his back on that destructive movement, I can say with confidence that they have not. If a person belongs to an organization or is the supporter of an idea that they come to see as destructive or evil, the first thing they will want to do when they leave is to warn others against it, to warn them of the dangers it represents. If a person does not do this – that tells me that he or she hasn’t left the destructive movement or abandoned the pernicious idea but has just put another face on them. Instead of calling themselves communists or socialists they call themselves liberals and progressives. This camouflage is very old. I never once heard my parents and their party friends refer to themselves as Communists. They were progressives – and registered Democrats.” (Frontpagemag.com, October 9, 2013)

Horowitz outlines four defining features of the left:

1. Alienation from country:

        If you ask progressives about their patriotic feeling, they will tell you that they don’t think of themselves first as Americans but as “citizens of the world.”

2. Corruption: the key to understanding the left is its instinctive, practiced, and indispensable dishonesty.

3. Contempt for and rejection of the past is the third feature. Progressives contemptuously disregard the past, which is real, and focus exclusively on an imaginary evolutionary ascent or future: 

 “To understand why this is important, think of progressives as a species of religious fundamentalists planning a redemption. Like fundamentalists they look at the world as fallen – a place corrupted by racism, sexism and class division. But the truly religious understand that we are the source of corruption and that redemption is only possible through the work of a Divinity. In contrast, progressives see themselves as the redeemers, which is why they are so dangerous. Because they regard those who oppose them as the eternally damned. Progressives are on a mission to create the kingdom of heaven on earth by redistributing income and using the state to enforce politically correct attitudes and practices in everyone’s life. They want to control what you do, and who you are, and even what you eat. For your own good, of course.”

4. Since Progressives see themselves as saving the world – or “saving the planet” as they would prefer — they regard politics as a religious war.  This explains why they are so rude and nasty toward anyone who disagrees with or dissents against their politically correct panaceas.  And of course if they had the power the punishments would be far more severe, and that is why,

“...the politics of personal destruction is their favorite variety, why they are verbal assassins and go directly for the jugular, and why they think nothing of destroying the reputations of their opponents and burying them permanently. And that is why they can perform their character assassinations without regrets – or did I miss Obama’s apology to Romney for accusing him of killing a woman with cancer during the campaign? Why apologize when you did it for the good of a world transforming cause?”

Leftism: A Blood-Soaked Ideology

Paul Hollander's book "Political Pilgrims: Western Intellectuals in Search of the Good Society” recounts what depraved Leftist progressive intellectuals and apostate priests did for many decades on behalf of saving the planet during 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."

The blood of millions of men, women, and children stains the hands of progressive leaders from the West who covered up the most monstrous evils with appalling lies, revised history, mind-control techniques and propaganda:

"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." (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, British foreign correspondent, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)

Hatred of God

Darwin is the progressive left's weird anti-Moses who liberated them from the Cross and led them back into the demon-haunted wilderness where they became the servants of the spirit of death.   Thus the serpent first whispered progressive leftism in the garden (Gen. 3:5) and sealed it with the promise of the kingdoms of the world on the condition that progressives bow down to the serpent. (Matthew 4:9) Thus within the philosophical system of leftism and at the blackened heart of their psychology, hatred of the Holy Triune God,

“…is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions. Militant atheism is not merely incidental or marginal to Communist policy; it is not a side effect, but the central pivot.”  Solzhenitsyn

In “The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture,” David Kupelian chronicles the decline and fall of America and shows that it was deliberately orchestrated by God-hating progressives. Compared with the decent, morally ordered, child and family-friendly nation it once was, today’s progressive dominated America is a different country altogether.  It is deeply and angrily divided and,

“.... unable to deal with crises foreign or domestic, the world’s greatest debtor nation with 50 million people on food stamps, rampant divorce and family breakdown, unprecedented sexual anarchy with 110 million with STDs, almost 60 million abusing alcohol, and over 70 million taking mood-altering drugs. On so many levels, America is becoming ever more “bizarre”—diametrically opposed to logic and common sense. Although America’s bizarro transformation has been in progress for decades, it burst into full bloom in the age of Obama. ” (p. 10)

Madness in Our Demon-Haunted Wilderness

Here’s how retired Marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North describes America’s demon-haunted wilderness, where according to the U.S. government North is a racist, bigoted extremist (state enemy) because:

” I am a Christian and meet regularly with other Christians to study Gods word. My faith convinces me the prophecies in the Holy Bible are true. I believe in the sanctity of life, oppose abortion and want to preserve marriage as the union of a man and woman. I am a veteran with skills and knowledge from military training and combat. I own several firearms, frequently shoot them, buy ammunition and consider efforts to infringe on my Second Amendment rights to be wrong and unconstitutional. I frequently support the sovereignty of the United States, am deeply concerned about our economy, increasingly higher taxes, illegal immigration, soaring unemployment and actions by our government that will bury my children beneath a mountain of debt. Apparently, all this makes me a ‘right-wing extremist.’ At least that’s what it says in the April 7, 2009 ‘assessment’ issued by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security.” (Ibid, pp. 14-15)

A key indicator of demonic influence is the inversion and reversion of truth and reality. Thus in our demonically inverted, reversed, and increasingly lawless Leftist/Liberal dominated and debauched America, many key Biblical, political, and cultural concepts actually amount to their opposite. For example, the Genesis account ex nihilo is backward, anti-science superstition; the two-sexes, male and female and traditional marriage are slavery; the words 'discernment, discrimination, and judgment' conjure up clouds of negativity and foreboding; sin is not sin but self-actualization; tolerance means mandatory celebration of vice; charity is entitlement; envy is righteousness; theft is economic justice; abortion is choice; faith is ignorance; Lucifer is mans’ genetic creator, and the world we live in is 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 progressive physicists and Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Trans humanist Association.

Progressive leftism/liberalism is an irrational, God-hating, murderous ideology from hell that is responsible for the slaughter of in excess of 130, 000,000 Russians—more than half of them Christian-- on behalf of attaining ownership of the serpent's promised ‘heaven on earth.'   And it is into this crucible of hell on earth that the GOP establishment seeks deliverance from Donald Trump.

It is the Word of God that exposes the madness, malice and hatred hidden by the masks worn by the serpent's leftist servants occupying most positions of power and control throughout America's political, religious, educational, economic, legal, entertainment, music, and other information dissemination institutions. The Word of God says leftists are,

dead in [their] trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1).  They walk “according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience” (v. 2) "And because they did not think it worthwhile to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong. They are filled with all unrighteousness, evil, greed, and wickedness. They are full of envy, murder, disputes, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, arrogant, proud, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, and unmerciful. Although they know full well God's just sentence - that those who practice such things deserve to die - they not only do them, but even applaud others who practice them" (Ro. 1:28-32)

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

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

While the serpent's leftist/liberal servants see the breakdown of the family, the unrelenting slaughter of the unborn and just born, the apostasy of the church into humanism, signs of addiction to pornography and other vices, together with the lawlessness and insanity over-spreading our nation as signs of victorious progress, some Americans choose to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to what is going on while still others, lacking hope, foresee only disaster.  Ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn however, offers a weary, spiritually disconsolate, frightened people their only hope.

Most of what contemporary Russia has to tell us about its' 20th century Communist empire of evil--its' demonic reality---can be seen in Solzhenitsyn who warns that once the God of Revelation has been removed from men’s lives, it means the logical end of modern Western and American history.  In other words, totalitarian Communism and Gulag were not merely Russian experiments but rather the end of all people who remove the God of Revelation from the center of life.

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

In his 1983 Templeton Prize address, ‘Men Have Forgotten God,’ Solzhenitsyn warns us that all attempts to find a way out of our progressive-induced plight 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.”

The Brotherhood of the All Seeing Eye of the Serpent

In 1962 an international evolutionary progressive elite gathered in Washington D.C. to set plans in motion for the institution, on a global scale, of a Scientific Occult Theocratic State.  Imposition required that the existing Biblically grounded order be stealthily undermined and broken-down into chaos on the assumption that out of chaos a new order would emerge. 

 When Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World in 1932, he accurately foresaw the wrenching, increasingly violent breaking down of society we are currently experiencing and predicted that the end of it would be a godless scientific dictatorship unlike anything the world has ever seen. He concluded that evolutionary  progressivism produces scientific dictatorship designed to engineer a new man as well as manipulate, dominate and control the worlds' wealth and resources and micro-manage every human being in every detail of his life.  The scientific and evolutionary system itself would become a god that would be worshipped, even by theologians, and questioning any aspect of it would be tantamount to blasphemy. (Preface Technocracy Rising, Patrick Wood)

Progressive Masters of the Universe

Before his death, the prominent American political scientist Samuel P. Huntington described today's elite progressive 'citizens of the world' as having little need for national loyalty.  They view,

"...national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite's global operations."  (Who Are We? The Challenges to America's National Identity, Huntington, p. 268)

By 2002, Jeremy Rifkin, an elite progressive adviser to the European Union and head of the largest global economic development team in the world declared in A New Word– A New World:

“We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else’s home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of preexisting cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces…..We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible for nothing outside ourselves, for we are the kingdom.” (Rifkin cited in “Paganism in Today’s Culture,” Dr. Peter Jones, director of truthXchange and Adjunct professor of Westminster Seminary)

Transforming the West: The Most Important Step

"For he rebuilt the high places that Hezekiah his father had destroyed, and he erected altars for Baal and made an Ashram, as Ahab king of Israel had done, and worshipped all the host of heaven and served them."  2 Kings 21: 3

The most important step involved breaking down belief in the one true God, orthodox Christianity and faithful Judaism. Toward this goal a Temple of Understanding was erected in Washington D.C. where progressive citizens of the new world order would plan and plot world government and develop a universal occult spirituality.  Sponsors, backers and planners of the Temple included John D. Rockefeller, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, Swami Prabhavanda of the Vedanta Society; Socialist leader Norman Thomas, Eleanor Roosevelt; Miguel Ydigoras Fuentes, president of Guatemala; the United Lodge of Theosophists; Rev. Fred Jordan, president of International Spiritualists; S.A. Mohamed, cultural attache of the United Arab Republic, many prominent ministers, eight American Ambassadors and fourteen Ambassadors to the United States. (The Cult of the All Seeing Eye, Robert Keith Spenser, pp. 43,-50) 

The occult symbolism planned for the Temple was the same as for the U.N. Meditation Room--- the All Seeing Eye of a 'dying and rising' godman worshipped throughout the world under many different names--- Ba'al/Tammuz/Osiris/Horus/Zeus/Quetzalcoatal/Kukulcan/Apollyon:

"The philosophers of the ancient world were the spiritual masters of the Inner Mysteries... At the heart of the Mysteries were myths concerning a dying and resurrecting godman, who was known by many different names. In Egypt he was Osiris, in Greece Dionysus, in Asia Minor Attis, In Syria Adonis, in Italy Bacchus, in Persia Mithras. Fundamentally all these godmen are the same mythical being.” (The Jesus Mysteries - Was the Original Jesus a Pagan God, Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy, page 4)

"The central figure of the ancient Egyptian Religion was Osiris, and the chief fundamentals of his cult were the belief in his divinity, death, resurrection, and absolute control of the destinies of the bodies and souls of men. The central point of each Osirian's Religion was his hope of resurrection in a transformed body and of immortality, which could only be realized by him through the death and resurrection of Osiris.” (Egyptologist E.A. Wallace Budge, Osiris & the Egyptian Resurrection)

From the time of the Sumerians, Babylonians, and Egyptians, Mystery teachings have invariably attributed to Sirius a special status in connection with Isis (Sirius A), Osiris (Sirius B), astrology, Hermeticism, secret initiations, conceptions of transmigration, reincarnation, astral plane travels and other forms of occult evolutionary philosophy.

Hermetic Mystery schools and orders teach that Sirius is the divine "sun behind the sun" that is both the true source of the sun's energy which keeps the physical world alive, as well as the divine substance that keeps the spiritual world alive. Whereas the sun illuminates the physical world, which is considered to be an illusion, Sirius is the "real light," the Great Dragon, Cosmic Serpent, Divine Substance, Chaos, Abraxas, Star Maker, Ground of Being, or Essence of material phenomena, meaning that the material universe exists only as a grand illusion or mental construction as it does for example in the mind of Brahman:

"Brahman is real, the world is unreal." (swamij.com/mahavakyas)

The two most important figures associated with Hermetic Theosophy (New Age or New Spirituality), Madame Blavatsky and Alice Bailey, considered Sirius to be the source of mystical serpent power: the seething energies of Lucifer that exert a spiritual influence over the entire Sephiroth or cosmic tree of life and therefore directly link with every great religion of antiquity because these energies extend into the psyche of mankind.

Bailey taught that Sirius is the "Great White Lodge" and believed it to be the spiritual home of the "Spiritual Hierarchy." For this reason she considered Sirius as the star of initiation into godhood because our Hierarchy (an expression of the second aspect of divinity) is under the spiritual magnetic control of the Hierarchy (fallen seraphim) of Sirius and these are the major controlling,

"...influences whereby the cosmic Christ works upon the Christ principal in the solar system, in the planet,  in man and in the lower forms of life expression. “  (The Mysterious Connection Between Sirius and Human History, vigilantcitizen.com, Dec. 12, 2012)

Bailey also taught that Luciferian energy emanating from Sirius is the energy of thought: a mind force that reaches the solar system from a distant cosmic center via Sirius. Sirius acts as the transmitter,

"...or the focalising centre, whence emanate those influences which produce self-consciousness."

In the classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages" English theologian G.H. Pember (1837-1910) examines the role of Watchers (seraphim) in the first destruction of earth under God's judgment and compares them to the explosion of spiritism (open communication with evil spirits), evolutionary theories, Theosophy, Buddhism, reincarnation, karma, the Mysteries, astrology and occult rituals sweeping across Christendom.

It was during the Renaissance that many influential Christians at the highest levels of Church and society had returned to the occult Mysteries (Wisdom Teachings) that originated in Babylon and Egypt. In his own time, Pember observes that ancient occult traditions are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by a powerful occult brotherhood as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given,

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

 Pember knows that occult teachings are grounded in knowledge received from demons, thus he particularly connects evolutionary philosophy to spiritism. This teaching said Pember, made the world ready for the deeper teachings of the Brotherhood (seraphim):

".....the Brotherhood decided that the time had come to communicate with it, and openly influence its religion and philosophy. They have, however, become so etherealized by their practices that they are unable to endure contact with coarse human nature; it was, therefore, necessary to employ intermediaries. The first person known to have been chosen for this purpose was a Madame Blavatsky." (pp. 243-246)

In affirmation, Corinne McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson, the politically influential co-authors of "Spiritual Politics: Changing the World from the Inside Out," admit that their book is based on the Ageless Wisdom teachings preserved by occultists since the Egyptian pantheon (27th-30th centuries B.C) and handed down over the ages to modern occultists in the time of the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and on into our own time:

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

Beginning with the work of the Brotherhood (aka Masters) acting through Blavatsky, Ageless Wisdom has succeeded in over-spreading W. Europe and America and made deep inroads into the whole body of the American Christian Church over the last one hundred years. Blavatsky's important book, 'The Secret Doctrine' (1888) paved the way by synthesizing,

".....Christian, Jewish, and Islamic mysticism with the Eastern teachings of Hinduism, Taoism, and Buddhism, showing their common roots and comparing their sacred texts...."

The next development came through the teachings of Alice Bailey, an apostate Evangelical who was contacted in 1919 by a seraphim calling itself Djwhal Khul.  According to McLaughlin and Davidson, Khul asked Bailey,

"....to write a series of books with him telepathically that would continue Blavatsky's work. Over a period of thirty years, Bailey received eighteen books from him on the nature of the cosmos and the human being, outlining principles for individual spiritual growth and humanity's next evolutionary steps. In 1923 Bailey founded Lucis Trust [originally called Lucifer Publishing, ed.] to bring the teachings in her books to the public. A year later she began the Arcane School. The books were written to apply to several levels of consciousness at once and thus can be read by both beginners and advanced students. Her works have been especially helpful to the two of us in our own spiritual growth and have provided much of the inspiration for Spiritual Politics."

Central to ancient Egyptian and modern Mystery orders such as the Order of the Golden Dawn, Theosophy and New Spirituality is ophiolatry (worship of serpents/seraphim) and the theme of a pantheon of nine Sun Gods or with modern orders, an occult Hierarchy of nine evolved Brothers or Masters: god-men who have finished their cycles of reincarnation and material evolution but have chosen to remain here on the earth (Gaia) to serve people in their own conscious evolution as well as guide Gaia's spiritual evolution:

"(The solar deity Kneph was pictured as a serpent in a fiery circle and Osiris) was essentially identical with Kneph...The worship of Isis, the moon-goddess, was equally entwined with ophiolatry. Her emblem was the horned viper...The Egyptians often represented Isis and Osiris together, as two serpents." (The Cult of the All-Seeing Eye, Robert Keith Spenser, p. 35)

Depending on who they are speaking to, the nine Masters variously call themselves the Brotherhood, Space Brothers, Ascended Masters, the ancient Ennead of Egypt (the nine Sun Gods), Nine Principles of God, the Deep Space Nine, the Group, Sirians and Council of Nine. Today there is a vast and growing network of channelers purporting to receive messages from the Nine and still others calling themselves Light Workers who claim to have presented briefings from the Group five times at the United Natio.

According to Dag Hammarskjold, the 'dying and rising' Sun god of a thousand names is the god of the UN Meditation Room mural, an asymmetrically arranged 'Magic Square' symbolizing the Divine Substance, the singularity from which emanate evolving energies extending into the psyche of mankind.

 Ancient Near Eastern Scholar Dr. Michael Heiser, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University explains how and why the nations came to worship the Sun god:

"Deuteronomy 32:8-9 describes how Yahweh's dispersal of the nations at Babel resulted in his disinheriting those nations as his people.  This is the Old Testament equivalent of Romans 1:18-25, a familiar passage wherein God 'gave (humankind) over' to their persistent rebellion....As odd as it sounds, the rest of the nations were placed under the authority of members of Yahweh's divine council (who became corrupt).  The rest of the nations were assigned to lesser elohim as a judgment from the Most High, Yahweh....God decreed, in the wake of Babel, that the other nations...would have other gods...to worship."  (The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible, pp. 113-114)

Dr. Heiser explains that in ancient Ugaritic texts Ba'al was called "king of kings," "most high," "lord of Zaphon," and "prince, lord of the underworld" (zbl banal' arts).  Baal was Beelzebul (Matthew 10:25; 12:24; 12:27) and Baal Zebub, titles associated with Satan, the serpent in Genesis.   Ba'als divine mountain was located within the boundary of the sinister area known as the gateway to the underground (Hades/Hell)

In ancient Ugaritic literature Ba'als' androgynous consort is Astoreth (Osiris’ wife/daughter Isis, the Egyptian goddess of a 1,000 names) was the androgynous consort of Ba’al, According to Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) temple priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar (Isis) from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their devotion,

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

Baal, Astoreth, Osiris, Isis, Horus, Zeus, and Apollyon, as well as all other pagan gods and goddesses worshipped and served by the world's nations are fallen, wicked Watchers, serpentine Seraphim,

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

In June of 2016,  the European ruling class, represented by German Chancellor Angela Markel, French President Francois Hollande, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Liechtenstein Prime Minister Adrian Hasler, and Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern took part in the opening of the world's longest tunnel under the Swiss Alps,. The ceremony was ritualistically acted out under the baleful gaze of the All Seeing Eye, the symbol of Ba'al.

Idolatry in no small degree has always commenced with Sun god worship.  Whether the Sun god is revered as Ba’al, Osiris, Horus, Saturn, Remphan, Chiun, Sheitan, Titan, San, Shamas, Bel, Ra, Moloch, Milcom, Hadad, Adramelech, Anamelech, Mithras, Apollo, Zeus, Sheikh Shems, Cybele, Pan, Cernunnos, the goat of Mendes,  Baphomet, Siva--the androgynous destroyer of worlds--- or the Masonic Architect of the Universe (Lucifer), Sun god  worship is common to all of the world's nature religions and Mystery Religion initiates, adepts, and god-men.   

The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylon as the post-flood center of a serpent-powered occult pagan Mystery religion based on Sun god worship, advaitic monism, science of evolutionary transformism, exalted transgender priesthood, gnosis, secret initiations, psychic-powers, familiar spirits, human sacrifice, sexual perversions, and other evils.

Like their modern counterparts, Babylonians embraced the Great Lie. Its inhabitants claimed the title, "I AM." The root source of this evil religion and its occult power was the Great Dragon himself....Lucifer:

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

 

 

Christless Theology and Tyranny of Relativism in America's Man-Centered Church

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.” (Psalm 37:23)

Tragically, most of the American Church preaches an arrogantly man-centered theology that is not ordered by the Lord but by sinful men. It is a morally relative (subjective), 'scientific' and/or 'feel good' theology in which the opinions of men and women are elevated above the eternally unchanging Authoritative Word of God.    

For example, theistic evolutionists, progressive creationists, and gap theorists argue that Genesis 1 not an essential Christian doctrine.  But this stance misrepresents what’s at stake in this debate—the inerrancy, authority, and clarity of Scripture.

"Tragically, many Reformed theologians—who have enshrined sola Scriptura in their doctrine statements—have allowed their seminaries and churches to be infiltrated by compromised views of Genesis 1. Generally, they shudder at the thought of losing academic credibility and being sneered at by the gatekeepers of higher learning. The first casualty of that compromise is almost always a literal interpretation of the Bible’s first chapter.”   Cameron Buettel, Fridays Featured Sermon: “Creation, Theology, and the End of the Universe,” gty.org)

In their eagerness to persuade church leaders to accept evolution/long ages compromising theologians bring error and crisis into the church in four primary ways.

 First, they encourage Christians to question God’s Word, a tactic used by Satan on Eve (Genesis 3).  

Second, because evolution requires long ages they must say that God created a world of suffering and death right from the beginning, a position that makes God responsible for evil.  Thus because God’s creation was not “very good” then God is not good either.  In this way the Lord is robbed of goodness and neither Satan nor man are fallen since it is the Lord who is fallen.  

Third, they rob Jesus Christ the Word Who was with God and is God (John 1:1) of the worship that is His due. (Romans 1)  By persuading gullible Christians to accept evolution (for pagan and pantheist humanists, evolution is the primary creative force of Nature) they deceptively ascribe to Nature (capital N) the credit for the creation of everything.

Fourth, without a personal ‘hands on’ Creator, then Christianity has been rendered Christless with no moral law to break, no Judge, no judgment, and no seed for a Savior. (Nice Theologians Leading the Church Away from the Truth, Dr. Don Batten, May 2017, creation.com) 

Within the context of Christless theology,  it is not man but the Lord and His creation that are fallen.   Hell doesn't exist or if it does then men in that place will be annihilated (a heresy posited by the Gnostic pagan Arnobius) or despite that everyone is living in sin they are going to heaven (a spiritually pagan position) because God is strictly a God of unconditional love (the god of pagan spirituality) rather than the supernatural Triune God of love but of wrath and judgment as well.  Christless theology means that man doesn't need a Savior since man in his arrogant defiance has made himself into his own savior (original sin).

However, man's Christless theology and subjective opinions are NOT the Ultimate Authority but rather the outworking of sin:

"While sin invariably causes physical and (apart from faith in Christ) spiritual death, it has many other devastating consequences. Sin corrupts the mind (Jer. 17:9; Eph. 4:17-19), the will (cf. Jer. 44:16-17), and the affections (John 3:19; 1 John 2:15). Sin brings people under the control of Satan (John 8:44; Eph. 2:2) and makes them the objects of God’s wrath (Eph. 2:3). Sin robs people of peace (Isa. 48:22) and replaces it with misery (Job 5:7; Rom. 8:20). “    John MacArthur, The Plague of Plagues, Oct. 2, 2016

Dr. R. Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, describes our sin sick age and its’ man-centered church as marked by so much spiritual and theological confusion that the God of the Bible has largely disappeared from view and been replaced by less imposing,

"... deities that are more amenable to the modern mind." (The Disappearance of God, Mohler, p. xiii)

We are witnessing the paganization and evaporation of orthodox Biblical theism to which must be added rebellion against every vestige of authority, an inversion of history caused by evolutionary thinking, moral relativism and,

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

One of the central realities of America's Christless theology is the dawning of a post-Christian culture now rapidly transitioning into an openly hostile anti-orthodox Christian society in which an anti-orthodox Christian consciousness is now well developed. Objective truth has been replaced by a tyranny of moral relativism, and tolerance perverted into a paganism that is wholly open to 'gay' marriage, sodomy and androgyny (transgender); abortion as legalized 'choice,' obscene sex education for children, occult practices within both church and society, Satanism, shamanism, Wicca, magic, nudity, pornography and Rave Festivals but intolerant of God's Authority, Moral Law, immutable Truth and sexual ethics:

 "Neither in government nor individually do a large section of people know the difference between right and wrong anymore.  It has become my party, my plan, my profit, my side, my victory, my institution, my congregation or simply me, myself, and I....We live in a perverse society where it is illegal to name God, Jesus Christ, and their Commandments in school while at the same time it is legal to send hard core porn via the internet into the homes of citizens...It is the selfishness of ordinary people that opens the gate to immoral tyranny, just as it happened in Germany."   (Defeating the Totalitarian Lie: A Former Hitler Youth Warns America, Hilmar Von Campe, p. 198-199)

We are living in an age of deep and undeniable breakdown, an age of darkness, insanity, and spreading evil where every autonomous man is his own 'truth-maker' and insane savior.  As evil tentacles reach into and take hold of the disordered minds of sinners, moral constraints and restraints are thrown off in the name of a Christless theology and Godless ideology that licenses liberation that does not emancipate but enslaves, does not save but condemns because sin-sick man cannot regenerate and cleanse his dead spirit (filthy conscience, wicked will, carnal mind), thus can neither forgive nor save himself.   In a sermon entitled,"The Carnal Mind Enmity Against God" C. H. Spurgeon describes the carnal mind:

"It is not black, but blackness; it is not at enmity, but enmity itself; it is not corrupt, but corruption; it is not rebellious, it is rebellion: it is not wicked, it is wickedness itself. The heart, though it be deceitful, is positively deceit; it is evil in the concrete, sin in the essence, it is the distillation, the quintessence of all things that are vile; it is not envious against God, it is envy; it is not at enmity, it is actual enmity."  (The Carnal Mind, GreatChristianQuotes.com)

Man is a desperate sinner in need of forgiveness and salvation by the Physician of our Souls, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  This is why in "The Poison of Subjectivism," C.S. Lewis warns that subjectivism will certainly end the human race and "damn our souls." Because Lewis was an orthodox Christian he agreed with the fundamental teachings of his Lord and savior Jesus Christ and the Old Testament prophets that salvation presupposes sin (soul sickness) and the need of repentance, therefore repentance logically presupposes an objectively real Moral Law and need of a Savior, thus It follows that Jesus Christ, our Savior, did not die for our opinions. And this is precisely why we need to humbly repent of our arrogant pride, Christless man-centered theology and other sins and ask the Physician of our souls to heal our sin-sickness.
