Eve---The First Idolator, Humanist, and Relativist

Herbert Schlossberg, a leading fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, writes that exultation of "self" to status of deity, dates from the earliest reaches of antiquity

"...but its development into an ideology embracing the masses is a characteristic trait of modernity." (Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture, p. 40-41)

Eve was the first person to commit this sin, said Schlossberg.  She was the first idolatrous humanist and moral relativist. The temptation she succumbed to was not the fruit but rather the seductive idea that she would be like God, knowing both good and evil. The physical attraction was the fruit, but what was fed was her pride, and what would grow was her appetite for self-worship. Eve already knew good, but now made foolish by pride she would know evil as well:

"Pride is the beginning of all sin...for it was (pride) that overthrew the devil, from whom arose the origin of sin, and who, through...envy, overturned (man)...For the serpent, seeking a way to enter...sought the door of pride, when he declared, "You shall be as gods." That is why it is written, "Pride is the beginning of all sin," and "The beginning of the pride of man is to fall away from God." ("On Nature and Grace 29:33," Augustine)

America's  idolatrous humanists have a high conceit of 'self.' For instance, Obama 'messiah' assured his pro-death supporters that they are doing 'gods' work while other idolators go so far as to describe their exalted condition as 'trans-humanist' since they believe they no longer merely human but godlike.   So while faithful Christians pray to God the Father Almighty Who created all men in His spiritual image, Americas’ idolatrous ruling class pray to themselves,

".. as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image” and since there is no "standard of right and wrong beyond the Ruling Class'....self-conception, its greatest concern has been to denigrate the American people's devotion to God, because the Ruling Class accepts no standard it cannot control.” ("The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It” Angelo Codevilla p. xix, xx)

Made foolish, ignorant, and depraved by pride, it is for example, dislike or even hatred based on how someone makes them feel, perverse appetites such as. pedophilia, and pernicious compulsions such as lust, covetousness, envy, and vengeance that are 'authoritative' sources used by humanists to judge each situation.  So depending on how the 'judge' feels and what his or her irrational feelings, appetites and compulsions are, the decision in one case may be in favor of road-rage, child pornography, and murder and against the victims of these crimes while for others it may be against America's conservative middle class tax-payers and for obscene sex education, sale of aborted baby parts, gun and property confiscation, redistribution of middle-class wealth, open borders and Islam because, his leaven is self-righteous hypocrisy (Luke 12:1-3) because "His mouth is full of curses and deceit and oppression; Under his tongue is mischief and wickedness.” Psalm 10:7.

The respected historian Arnold Toynbee surveyed civilizations across the whole span of history and concluded that self-worship and its self-serving morally-twisted companion, moral relativism, was the paramount false religion of mankind, and though its guises over history have been numerous and varied, today it exists as humanistic ideologies embracing both 'elites' and their complacent, know-nothing followers--depersonalized masses:

"My students are know-nothings.  They are exceedingly nice, pleasant, trustworthy, mostly honest, well-intentioned, and utterly decent.  But their minds are largely empty, devoid of any substantial knowledge that might be the fruits of an education in an inheritance and a gift of a previous generation.  They are the culmination of western civilization, a civilization that has forgotten it origins and aims, and as a result, has achieved near-perfect indifference about itself...The pervasive ignorance of our students is not a mere accident or unfortunate but correctible outcome, if only we hire better teachers or tweak the reading lists in high school.  It is the consequence of a civilizational commitment to civilizational suicide.  The end of history for our students signals the End of History for the West.” (Res Idiotica, Patrick J. Deneen, Front Porch Republic, Feb. 23, 2016)

From ancient days to our own, idolatry has been a universal substitute for God the Creator.  While ancients deified and worshipped images of man, birds, animals, and reptiles, for modern idolatrous humanists, scientism (gnosis) and evolutionary theory are substitute deities that in deifying nature deify humanists at the same time.  

The propensity for self-worship is behind the incessant Biblical injunctions against pride. Tyre was struck down "Because your heart is proud, and you have said, 'I am God." (Ezek. 28:2) The judgement at the Tower of Babel was for the same reason (Gen. 11:4). In his declaration of God's death, Nimrod preceded "death of God" humanists like Karl Marx, Nietzsche, Freud and liberal theologians by thousands of years.

In a self-exulting recitation of his greatness, his conquests, his execution of his captives with fire and sword and his enemies sadistically skinned alive, together with the general devastation he wrought, Assur-Nasir-Pal, divine ruler of ancient Assyria boasted:

"And now at the command of the great gods, my sovereignty, my dominion, and my power, are manifesting themselves; I am regal, I am lordly, I am exulted, I am valiant, I am lion-brave, and I am heroic. (I) Assur-Nasir-Pal, the mighty king, the king of Assyria, chosen of Sin, favorite of Anu, beloved of Adad, mighty one among gods, I am the merciless weapon that strikes down the land of his enemies...." (A History of Western Morals, p. 48, 1959)

In terms of catastrophic cultural, economic and religious devastation, cruelty, and the genocidal murder of their own people, Assir-Nasir-Pal is topped in every way by 20th century Communist and Nazi humanists.

The Soviet Union for example, was a humanist-pagan state. Its so-called "scientific socialism" was grounded in evolutionary materialist-monism with Buddhist undertones.  As with Assir-Nasir-Pal, decisions concerning who should live and who should die were decided on the basis of irrational feelings, appetites, compulsions and pragmatism, meaning whatever seemed to work at the moment.

A tsunami of concentrated evil swept over humanist-controlled Orthodox Christian Russia. Historian R.J. Rummel details some of it:

"...communism, Marxism-Leninism and its variants meant in practice bloody terrorism, deadly purges, lethal gulags and forced labor, fatal deportations, man-made famines, extrajudicial executions and show trials, and genocide." With this understood, "the Soviet Union appears the greatest megamurderer of all...killing near 61,000,000."  (Power Kills, hawaii.edu)

Today it is the turn of post-Christian humanist America and Europe to experience the devastating effects of idolatrous, irrational humanist hatred on daily display in its virulent hatred of Christianity and its insane embrace of open borders, illegal immigration, and Islam.   A few days ago, some of Europe's most important intellectuals -- including British philosopher Roger Scruton, former Polish Education Minister Ryszard Legutko, German scholar Robert Spaemann and Professor Rémi Brague from the Sorbonne in France — expressed their grave concerns in The Paris Statement:

"The patrons of the false Europe are bewitched by superstitions of inevitable progress. They believe that History is on their side, and this faith makes them haughty and disdainful, unable to acknowledge the defects in the post-national, post-cultural world they are constructing. Moreover, they are ignorant of the true sources of the humane decencies they themselves hold dear — as do we. They ignore, even repudiate the Christian roots of Europe. At the same time they take great care not to offend Muslims, who they imagine will cheerfully adopt their secular, multicultural outlook."  (Europe’s New Official History Erases Christianity, Promotes Islam, Giulio Meotti,  Gatestone Institute, Oct. 18, 2017)

Man's capacity for self-deception and self-justification, for example, of whatever self-serving lie he has told or whatever wicked appetite he seeks to gratify, is almost infinite. And this is the reason why idolatrous humanist subjectivism (moral relativism) always leads to disaster, individually and collectively.

Humanist controlled Europe and America are pagan, idolatrous, and irrational, and as a result have fallen into varying degrees of lunacy because a majority of Europeans and Americans have either wittingly or unwittingly made gods of themselves and of things, technology, irrational feelings, disordered appetites,  politics, science, evolution, and ideologies. Thus today, government and law-making are expressions of humanist autonomy (idolatry) and everything and everyone--from whether European and American civilization lives or dies, to abortion and the sale of baby parts, transgender marriage, social justice, hate crime laws, and open borders-- exist to gratify inflated pride, irrational feelings, and desires of obviously insane, egoistic individuals.

Despite that from antiquity human beings have been disposed toward self-deification, the fact remains that from days of old to our own time, laws have always been theologically based, that is, handed down to mankind, at first by gods and later on by the true, living God, said Schlossberg. Laws had to have ultimacy or they could not work as intended:

"When law loses what only the conviction of ultimacy can bestow, it degenerates into pragmatism, and that means the end is near."

The Word of God tells us that the human eye is the lamp of the body.  The eye that is healthy describes a spiritually healthy, light-filled way of looking at things while a bad eye--the eye of the godless humanist--describes an evil way, or darkness filled way of looking at things resulting in a life of moral and spiritual darkness. (Luke 11: 34-35) All of this means that the end is near for humanist dominated America for when a society falls into idolatry (darkness), more evil--tyranny--- follows. Thereafter, law will be used to justify anything, even mass murder, as was the case in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.

Being filled with darkness, idolatrous humanists imagine they possess self-righteousness. But this is a dangerous delusion with eternal consequences. 

Only spiritual regeneration and return to the eternally unchanging Truth and Moral Laws of the living God are the hedge against the coming disaster.  Thus we must earnestly pursue the Holy Creator God in a humble spirit of repentance, for without true spiritual revival our nation is doomed.

Technocratic Trans-Humanism: A Global Religion

Western Technocratic Trans-Humanists are god-men dedicated to the science of social engineering, and that includes direct manipulation of the human herd by putting chemicals into the water supply:

“ This study was edited by Bruce S. McEwen of Rockefeller University. That they would even discus this is a horror reminiscent of Nazi Germany during WWII. Remember, however, that most of America is already drinking fluoride that was imposed without advice and consent from the consuming public."   (Rockefeller University: Doping Western Cultures With Oxycontin Will Cure Hatred of Refugees, Technocracy News, Sept. 8, 2017)

Technocrats are the current generation of Western humanist god-men whose Marxist counterparts were described by Alexander Solzhenitsyn as ‘Masters of the Universe.’   They are utopianists who believe they possess the gnosis and power to ‘scientifically’ engineer a New Man (an androgyne) purified of evil according to Technocratic definitions of evil.   Purification generally requires, among other horrors, cleansing of the human gene pool via eugenics and other methods of racial cleansing; scientific experimentation upon the human herd; and brainwashing via psychological manipulation, or thought reform techniques.

Like Marxist and Nazi social engineers, Technocrats are Darwinians (modern pagan monists) who believe that evil is something not of humanity, especially of themselves.  Because they reject the living, supernatural Triune God and the fall and choose instead to embrace evolutionary philosophy and Enlightenment concepts, they see no evil within themselves. No matter how wicked their thoughts, words, and actions, they are essentially good. Their lies for example, are 'caused' by hateful, bigoted subhumans who try to prevent them from telling their own version of 'truth,' and after Adam Lanza,

'...no one is more to blame for the massacre of 20 first graders and six women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School than the National Rifle Association..." (Progressives Plan March On NRA In DC Monday, Evan McMorris-Santoro, talkingpointsmemo.com, Dec. 16, 2012)  

Technocratic Humanism views evil as a mystical force existing within guns, whole organizations such as the National Rifle Association, whole classes of people such as white Christians and Conservatives, the Christian church, certain social institutions such as the traditional family, and certain genes.  

They also believe there are multiple races of humans in process of evolution.   Naturally, Technocratic Humanists are the most highly evolved race, which is why they are no longer mere humans but Trans-Humanists, meaning they have ascended (evolved) above the lower sub-human races. 

Past humanist pagans such as the Marxist Communists believed that Kulaks, Jews, Christians, and certain other undesirables (or deplorables according to Hillary) were genetically evil subhuman weeds, thus if these 'races' were to be annihilated, the whole problem of evil would be solved and paradise achieved.  In furtherance of their goal, more than 160,000,000 men, women, and children were annihilated.  

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

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

Alain Brossat, one of the authors of the Black Book of Communism draws the following conclusions about the two genocidal regimes, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and the ties that bind them:

“The value of human life collapsed, and thinking in categories replaced ethical thought...In the discourse and practice of the Nazi exterminators, the animalization of Other...was closely linked to the ideology of race. It was conceived in the implacably hierarchical racial terms of "sub humans" and "supermen"...but in Moscow in 1937, what mattered...was the total animalization of the Other, so that a policy under which absolutely anything was possible could come into practice." (Black Book of Communism, p. 751)

As in W. Europe, here in America application of Darwinian concepts to the ‘human herd’ has resulted in the animalization of Other, meaning undesirable Americans. 

Animalization is a license to harm and kill that has led for example, to millions of unborn humans aborted, growing numbers of unwanted adults euthanized, and late-term unborn babies cruelly dismembered and their body parts sold to the highest bidder.

Today’s crop of Technocratic Trans-Humanists believe that the subhuman ‘white race,’ is genetically evil, especially Trump voters, Christians, and Conservatives.  This is why ‘genetically evil’ white people are branded as racists, homophobes, transphobes, and xenophobes.  As it was in Marxist Russia and Nazi Germany, branding is a precursor to the Final Solution.

HUMANISM'S ANCIENT PAGAN ROOTS

In 1980, the Trilateral Observer published a lengthy essay entitled "Humanism: The Global Ideology." (Vol. 3, Issue 9) According to the Observer, Humanism is 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."  (Global Religion for Global Governance, Patrick Wood)

"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."  

Though it touts itself as thoroughly modern, enlightened, and scientific, Western Humanism is revamped and revised ancient pagan and mystical pantheist creeds.  Its materialistic 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 permutations of modern Western 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 mystery religion creed 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)  

Humanist Utopianism

 Marxist Communism is a humanistic Gnostic pagan doctrine 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 scientific and 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)

Communism is a godless, religiously monist (collectivist), subjectivist, philosophically Gnostic pagan and Eastern-oriented pantheist form of heretical Jewish elements and elements of heretical Protestant liberalism, particularly its’ evolutionary cosmogony.  This cosmogony is a mystical, upside-down, anti-creation account grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary, apocalyptic proclamation of a coming new order and new race of men based in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, and finally Trans-Humanist super-man endowed with the power to perfect this fallen world and humankind.

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 Technocracy, an animistic, Eastern-oriented worldview grounded in mereological nihilism.  Mereological nihilism posits that since self-evolved matter (i.e., the Void, Quantum Void, Mind of the Universe or Energy Field) is really energy (which may or may not be divine) then the smallest building blocks (atoms) that make up everything are really energy, making the material world an illusion and idolatrous Technocrats worshippers of divine energy in pursuit of godlike powers and immortality.

As It Was in the Days of Noah

Technocracy is not merely an ideology but rather a wholesale rejection of the only true God and a turning back to ancient dehumanizing pagan and pantheist creeds from the time of Babylon, and if New Age historians are correct in their conclusions, these creeds reach back through the mists of time to the days of Noah. (Luke 17: 26)

What is Evil?

During the course of the 20th century socialist and communist regimes brutally murdered somewhere between 160,000,000-350,000,000 men, women, and children in their maddened attempts at building the ideal society free from evil, especially the evils 'caused' by the Christian God, the Fall, monogamous marriage, the two created sexes, ethical restraints, cultural taboos and all conditions that make for envy:

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

Humanism, naturalism, de-humanizing evolution, and scientism, the spawn of positivism, were common to both regimes the same as they are with Progressive Leftism, thus in the Soviet Union, the God-and-human hating Vladimir Lenin exulted that,

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

In other words, as evolution supposedly proves that man is not a person created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons but is rather a conscious product of evolution, then he is less than nothing, therefore can be enslaved or killed as desire dictates. 

Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death. He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species." It was Lenin who "decided who should disappear by virtue of having been condemned to the dustbin of history." From the moment Lenin made the "scientific" decision that the bourgeoisie represented a stage of humanity that evolution had surpassed, "its liquidation as a class and the liquidation of the individuals who actually or supposedly belonged to it could be justified." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)

In Nazi Germany evolutionary scientism resulted in human breeding programs, gas chambers, ovens, and the liquidation of millions of ‘useless eaters’ and other undesirables.

If in man’s proud, selfish, greedy, hate-filled, envy bitten heart he knows he is superior to other people and more deserving than they then why not conceptually reduce them to pond scum, weeds, or sub humans as German Socialists and Marxist Communists did or sub human hominids, bigots, and racists as Western ‘elites’ do:

"Subhumanism is a weird hybrid philosophy that underlies the politics and lifestyles of the Western elite—and increasingly, of the common man, who soaks it in through the media. Subhumanism uses quasi-scientific assertions about evolution, biology, and human behavior to reduce people to brainy apes, whose behavior is not so much free as goaded by instincts or determined by electrochemical sparks in our neurons." (The Five Core Principles, Christopher White, tothesource, February 3, 2015) 

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

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

As with the German philosopher Nietzsche, a lapsed Christian who declared the death of the Christian God, Marxist Communists, Nazi Socialists, and Western ‘elites’ had stopped looking to heaven for their hopes and rewards. Declaring themselves ‘morally pure supermen’ they sought power here below and in pursuit of their utopian fantasies became the essence and face of evil.

No One Escapes Evil/Suffering

 Whether it is environmental evil resulting from hurricanes, floods, fires, tsunamis or earthquakes; physical suffering resulting from loss of limbs, cancer, or some other debilitating condition; or moral evil (sin), no one escapes it, and today with the Christian God dead in the hearts of a majority of modern Westerners and Americans and with little or no restraints upon the dark side of men, not since the 20th century has the existence of evil thoughts, vicious words, and rage-fueled actions been as apparent as in our largely humanized hence morally relative century where ‘self,’ evolution, and scientism are worshipped rather than our Father in heaven.  Hence the condemnation expressed by the ancient Greek nature philosopher Epicurus is repeated by millions of narcissistic, science and evolution worshipping Westerners and Americans today:

Omnipotence could, Benevolence would have prevented evil.”

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

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

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

From Nimrod to Karl Marx and contemporary "God is dead" Progressive Leftists and other apostates, the answer is the transcendent Authority of the Holy Triune together with the fallen condition of man and the world:

"Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God." He "changed the government into tyranny" in order to turn them away from God and make them dependent upon his own power. He also would be revenged upon God "if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to be able to reach!" And he would "avenge himself on God for destroying their forefathers." (Jewish historian Josephus cited in" Who was Nimrod?" Dr. David Livingston)

In every age, the natural mind unaided by Divine Revelation has tried in vain to solve the problem of evil:

"And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within the hearts of men come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, All these evils come from within, and these are what defile a man.” Mark 7: 20-23

Divine Revelation tells us that sin, the willful rejection of the Holy God, an attempt by the envious to annihilate Him if possible, is the origin of evil:

"Evil behavior includes sin committed against other people (murder, theft, adultery) and evil committed against God (unbelief, idolatry, blasphemy). From the disobedience in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:9) to the wickedness of Babylon the Great (Revelation 18:2), the Bible speaks of the fact of evil, and man is held responsible for the evil he commits: “The one who sins is the one who will die” (Ezekiel 18:20). Essentially, evil is a lack of goodness. Moral evil is not a physical thing; it is a lack or privation of a good thing.” (What is the Definition of Evil? gotquestions.org)

Sin began with Lucifer and then spread to Adam and Eve through abuse of will resulting in the loss of the supernatural gift of grace (spiritual death).  

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

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

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

But with Jehovah God dead in the hearts of millions of God-haters, fools, and hopeless, despairing people in a century dominated by the religion of Humanism, Naturalism, Relativism, Evolution and Scientism, escape is the response to suffering.

For example, the Buddha concluded that suffering is caused by thirst for immortality therefore evil is inherent in the very fact of existence.  Thus by our desire to continue our personal existence we remain enmeshed in the suffering involved by our conscious awareness of and desire for life.  To escape suffering we must deny ‘self’ (soul) if we are to live devoid of all desire to exist or we shall pay for it by reincarnation in another body in which we will relive our suffering.  Only by rejecting our desire for existence can we attain to Nirvana, absorption into the Divine One Substance.

As the key to Buddha’s system is denial of ‘self’ it becomes necessary to take God away, for if there is no God it logically follows there is no source for ‘self’--soul.  If man is not God’s spiritual image-bearer then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ walked this earth:

Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if God does not exist, then the human self cannot exist either (so) he deconstructed the Hindu idea of the soul (in order that your) sense of self is an illusion.  Reality is nonself…You don’t exist.”  Liberation from suffering, the Buddha taught, “is realizing the unreality of your existence.” (The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, P. 6)

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

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

This was the philosophy of Berlin and Moscow which regarded nations and people other than their own as worthy only to be sterilized, lobotomized, tormented, used for human experimentation, worked to death as slaves or liquidated.  Together Berlin and Moscow murdered in excess of 190,000,000 men, women, and children.

The attitude in common with all of these natural or pagan systems is that suffering, not sin, is the supreme evil thus the only means of dealing with suffering is escape of any kind and complete as possible---even to crushing and murdering other people---making peace the absence of suffering. This is why the very popular peace symbol seen everywhere today on everything from children's clothing, to T-shirts, jewelry, and purses is a symbol of doublethink meaning hatred, war, and death--not peace.  The symbol used by the so-called peace movement is the Teutonic rune of death.  Also called the Neronic Cross and Toten Rune, Nazis used it to replace the Christian cross on Waffen-SS graves.  

In "Occult ABC" Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who pastored, counseled and delivered more than 20,000 people suffering from occult (demonic) bondage, writes that at the time of the first-century persecution of Christians, the ‘peace symbol,’ an inverted cross with its arms broken, was called the Neronic cross.   It was on such a cross that the apostle Peter was crucified upside-down.  Koch comments:

"The symbol of peace thus signifies an inverted cross and is a symbol of hatred against Christians." (Occult ABC, p. 242)

 Yet because the fallen human condition is responsible for evil, the natural man never finds peace though he looks for it everywhere.

If Suffering, Not Sin, Is The Supreme Evil

If sin is a myth the same as the Genesis account ex nihilo and individual suffering caused by covetousness and envy are supreme evils then why should the man who envies God not conceptually murder Him and seize His powers for his own agenda as Marx and other envy-bitten God-killers did?  And why should envy-bitten, self-centered people have to suffer by not having what they covet or conversely not destroy whatever or whoever makes for suffering?   This is why Modern Liberals,

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

Siding with evil is ‘good’ to the wicked man because it is both a great leveler and a form of payback:

" It's clear that Barack Obama and Eric Holder have chosen to nurse their grievances and look for opportunities for "payback."   "Both have repeatedly jumped into local law enforcement issues, far from Washington, and turned them into racial issues, long before the facts came out. These two men -- neither of whom grew up in a ghetto -- have been quick to play the role of defenders of the ghetto, even when that meant defending the kinds of hoodlums who can make life a living hell for decent people in black ghettos."  (Obama vs. America, Thomas Sowell, onenewsnow.com, Feb. 3, 2015) 

Dorothy Sayers, who translated Dante's Inferno where pride, covetousness and envy were punished in the lowest part of Hell called envy 'the great leveler.' At its worst,

"...it is a destroyer – rather than have anyone happier than itself, it will see us all miserable together." (ibid, p. 66)

In this way of reasoning, why should abortionists, pornographers, pedophiles, transgenders, and Western ‘elites’ have to suffer the restraints placed on them by immutable truth, created norms, the Ten Commandments, Constitution, pro-lifers and other Conservatives?  Or why should pedophiles and pederasts suffer from unsatisfied appetites as the result of the protective stance of parents or envy-bitten homosexuals and lesbians not be priests or have marriage if it will alleviate suffering? And if death will be knocking on your door very quickly unless you receive an organ transplant, then why not send some child to the wall in order that you can have its organs?  Wesley J. Smith reports on this latest evil:

The first case of a child being trafficked to Britain in order to have their organs harvested has been uncovered.  The unnamed girl was brought to the UK from Somalia with the intention of removing her organs and selling them to those desperate for a transplant.  Child protection charities warned that the case was unlikely to be an isolated incident as traffickers were likely to have smuggled a group of children into the country.” (Officials Discover Child Trafficked from Somalia to UK to Harvest Her Organs, Smith, Life News, Oct. 20, 2013)

Wesley asks recipients if their own death is really worse than having a child killed or maimed that they might live? To escape their suffering some will clearly say yes.  Since their own suffering is supreme the child should be sacrificed on their behalf.

But if that isn’t evil, asked Wesley, what is?

We know that we are of God and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.”  1 John 5:19

The answer depends on whether you are a faithful, orthodox Christian or Jew whose will is in submission to our Heavenly Father or an autonomous natural man whose will is in submission to ‘self’ and the evil one.

Technocratic Humanism: The Global Religion

"Technocrats are dedicated to the ‘science of social engineering’, and that includes direct manipulation of the human herd by putting chemicals into the water supply. This study was edited by Bruce S. McEwen of Rockefeller University. That they would even discus this is a horror reminiscent of Nazi Germany during WWII. Remember, however, that most of America is already drinking fluoride that was imposed without advice and consent from the consuming public."   (Rockefeller University: Doping Western Cultures With Oxycontin Will Cure Hatred of Refugees, Technocracy News, Sept. 8, 2017)

Technocrats are the current generation of Humanist god-men described by Alexander Solzhenitsyn as ‘Masters of the Universe.’   They are utopianists who believe they possess the power to ‘scientifically’ engineer a New Man (an androgyne) purified of evil according to Technocratic definitions of evil.   Purification generally requires, among other horrors, cleansing of the human gene pool via eugenics, ethic cleansing, scientific experimentation upon the human herd, and brainwashing via thought reform techniques.

Like previous social engineers, Technocrats are Darwinian materialists (modern pagans and pantheists) who believe that evil is something that is not of humanity, especially of themselves.  Because they reject the living, supernatural Triune God and the Fall and choose instead to embrace evolutionary philosophy and Enlightenment concepts, they see no evil within themselves. No matter how wicked their thoughts, words, and actions, they are essentially good. Their lies for example, are 'caused' by hateful, bigoted authoritarians who prevent them from telling their own version of 'truth,' and after Adam Lanza,

'...no one is more to blame for the massacre of 20 first graders and six women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School than the National Rifle Association..." (Progressives Plan March On NRA In DC Monday, Evan McMorris-Santoro, talkingpointsmemo.com, Dec. 16, 2012)  

Modern pagan and pantheist Technocratic Humanists view evil as a mystical force that exists in guns, whole organizations such as the National Rifle Association, Christian church, certain social institutions such as the traditional family, and certain genes.  

They also believe  there are multiple races of humans in process of evolution.   Naturally, Technocratic Humanists are the most highly evolved race, which is why they are no longer mere humans but Trans-Humanists, meaning they have ascended (evolved) above the lower races which are still subhumans. 

Past Humanist pagans such as the Marxist Communists believed that Kulaks, Jews, Christians, and certain other undesirables (or deplorables according to Hillary) were genetically evil subhuman weeds, thus if these 'races' were to be annihilated, the whole problem of evil would be solved.  In furtherance of their goal, more than 160,000,000 men, women, and children were annihilated.  

Today’s crop of Technocratic Trans-Humanists believe that the subhuman ‘white race,’ is genetically evil, especially Trump voters, Christians, and Conservatives.  This is why ‘genetically evil’ white people are branded as racists, homophobes, transphobes, and xenophobes.

HUMANISM'S ANCIENT PAGAN ROOTS

In 1980, the Trilateral Observer published a lengthy essay entitled "Humanism: The Global Ideology." (Vol. 3, Issue 9) 

According to the Observer, Humanism is 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 Humanism today 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."  (Global Religion for Global Governance, Patrick Wood)

"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."  

Revamped and revised Humanism is an ancient pagan and mystical pantheist creed.  Its materialistic 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 modern Western 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)  

Humanist Utopianism

 Marxist Communism is a humanistic pagan doctrine 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 scientific and 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)

Communism is a godless, religiously monist (collectivist), subjectivist, philosophically Gnostic pagan and Eastern-oriented pantheist form of heretical Jewish elements and heretical Protestant liberalism's evolutionary cosmogony.  This cosmogony is a mystical, 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 Trans-Humanist super-man endowed with the power to perfect this fallen world and humankind.

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 Technocracy, an animistic, Eastern-oriented worldview grounded in mereological nihilism.  Mereological nihilism posits that since self-evolved matter (i.e., the Void, Sirius, Mind of the Universe or Energy Field) is really energy (which may or may not be divine) then the smallest building blocks (atoms) that make up everything  are really energy, making the material world an illusion and idolatrous Technocrats worshippers of divine energy in pursuit of godlike powers and immortality.

Technocracy is not merely an ideology but rather a wholesale rejection of the only true God and a turning back to ancient dehumanizing pagan and pantheist creeds from the time of Babylon, and if New Age historians are correct in their conclusions, these creeds reach back through the mists of time to the pre-flood world.

Acts 17: 18-19---The Modern Pagan and Pantheist Antithesis of the Word of God

In our own time, the pagan and pantheist antithesis of the Word of God remains substantially unchanged from what it was in Paul's time:

 "Paul was reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles, and in the market place every day with those who happened to be present. And also some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were conversing with him. Some were saying, "What would this idle babbler wish to say?" Others, "He seems to be a proclaimer of strange deities,"-- because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection. And they took him and brought him to the Areopagus, saying, "May we know what this new teaching is which you are proclaiming? "(Acts 17:18-19)

The Stoics and Epicureans were the two most prominent schools of nature philosophy, nature science and nature religion of that time. Theirs was a humanist, animist, monist, evolutionary, and occult scientific worldview predicated upon a one-dimensional universe of animated (evolving) physical matter or divine psychic energy (spiritualized matter). They were the physicists of their age.

Epicurean Atomism: Ancient and Modern

The Greek Atomist Epicurus (341-270 BC) is the father of contemporary scientific materialism. The principle tenet of Atomism teaches that the world was not created by any deity, or with any design, but came about by a chance movement of physical atoms of various sizes and magnitude that cemented together and so formed the world.

The world and everything in it were not created but instead the accidental emergent or evolved products of a great cosmic event (exploding Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) that spontaneously generated animated physical matter from nothing. This way of thinking excludes everything unseen, such as the human soul, mind, angels and demons, and holds that humans are aggregates of physical matter in motion in a human form and the human mind an active principle of grey matter.

This ancient pagan way of thinking forms the basis of the materialist psychology of Sigmund Freud, Darwin's evolutionary conception, modern evolutionary biology, secular humanism, secular trans-humanism and Marxist quasi-pantheist and animist dialectical materialism.

Though modern materialism originated in the metaphysics of ancient Ionians and Stoics during the sixth century BC it was the Atomists (Leucippus/Democritus, 460-357 BC; Epicurus, 342-270 BC; and Lucretius, 96-55 BC) who methodically developed Atomism, the root and source of modern scientific evolutionary materialism. (1)

"An age of science is necessarily an age of materialism," declared Hugh Elliot early last century, "Ours is a scientific age, and it may be said with truth that we are all materialists now."  (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, xiv)

Modern materialists such as Julien de la Mettrie (1709-51), Paul Henri Thiery, and Baron D'Holbach (1723-89) all agreed that the human mind is the property of physical matter and man nothing but a bio-machine.  La Mettrie speculated that machine-mans rational life is entirely determined by physical causes that run the gamut from raw meat, to climate, blood circulation, and gender.  Genetic inheritance, said la Mettrie, causes machine-man to commit crime.  This view casts parents into the role of "first cause" and would later manifest itself in the belief that State ‘experts,' or Hillary's "village" experts should have control of children.  (Ibid, pp. 16-18)

Pierre Simon Laplace (1749-1827) viewed scientific materialism, as not only the pursuit of God-like omniscience but of the Holy Grail itself---power to create a New Man.   If an intelligence could grasp "at a given instant...all the forces by which nature is animated" proclaimed Laplace, it could devise a mathematical formula that would predict everything that would ever happen, and "nothing would be uncertain, and the future, like the past, would be open to its eyes."  Scientists should reduce everything in the universe to mechanical laws that could be expressed in terms of mathematics, advised Laplace, for the promise of such knowledge was incredible power...even over life and mind itself.  (Ibid, p. 20)

Herbert Spencer, Fechner, Lotze, Wundt, and the pantheist Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the fraudulent scientism dictum---ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny---all agreed that life and mind are properties of physical matter.  Haeckel moreover imagined ether to be the primitive life-making substance, which like the primitive fire of the Stoics, changed one part of itself into inert mass while the other part became the active principle, spirit.  Today, many scientists routinely resort to Haeckel's postulate without ever inquiring into its pantheist implications.

Haeckel would later write,

"Pantheism teaches that God and the world are one...pantheism is...an advanced conception of nature (and) a polite form of atheism."  The truth of pantheism, confessed Haeckel, "lies in its destruction of the dualist antithesis of God..." The godless world system being constructed, said Haeckel, "substantially agrees with the monism or pantheism of the modern scientist."  (Monism, Ernst Haeckel, pantheist.net)

During the century to follow, Charles Darwin (1809-82) helped spread evolutionary materialism to the masses and eager seminarians and theologians.   As Stephen Jay Gould argues,

"Darwin applied a consistent philosophy of materialism to his interpretation of nature,” and "the ground of all existence; mind, spirit, and God (are reduced to) neural complexity." (Darwin Day in America, p. 41)  

According to Darwin, natural selection (god substitute) and the laws of heredity acting on matter produced mind, morality, and civilization.  By describing how deified natural mechanisms caused the complexity of life to emerge from deified matter, Darwin helped transform materialism from a fantastically bizarre tale told by power-mad Prometheans on the fringe of society to a hallowed scientism principle enshrined and worshipped by modern scientism and ‘enlightened' Westerners.   

Together, Darwinism and the Epicurean proposition that all that exists is matter in motion within the Void (monism) are the first principles of the naturalistic worldview proffered by atheists such as Richard Dawkins and other evolutionary materialists. 

Stoic Pantheism: Ancient and Modern

The Stoics were a celebrated school of severe and lofty mystical pantheist nature sages. Their main principle was that the universe of divine psychic energy was under the law of an iron necessity (determinism in Darwinian creeds and karma in Eastern creeds), the spirit of which was what they called the Deity, World Soul, or Goddess of the Earth (Gaia, Astarte, Isis, Cybele).

Stoic metaphysics has much in common with Eastern mystical pantheism, thus reality is not the physical world but rather the spiritual while the human spirit (divine spark) is deity in the same way that "The Self is Brahman" (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5) 

Modernized Stoic pantheism and its Eastern occult counterpart forms the basis of Carl Jung's psychology, Wicca, occult New Age spirituality, Luciferian Theosophy, spiritual or cosmic trans-humanism, Teilhard's Omega, Leonard Sweet's Quantum Spirituality, modern quantum physics, global warming and the science of climate change, to name but a few permutations.

Stoic and Epicurean sages received their ideas from ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Hindus, whose one-dimensional, evolutionary nature systems extended back centuries before Greek and Roman civilization to ancient Sumeria and the Babylonian Enuma Elish. The Enuma Elish is the original evolutionary cosmogony, the source and model for all ancient and modern evolutionary cosmogonies, Mysteries, nature religions, and evolutionary philosophy.  Though it was found in Nineveh, the capital of the Assyrians, evidence indicates that it dates back to the Sumerians.  It begins with an evolutionary account of beginnings.  Thorkild Jacobsen comments:

Enuma Elish assumes that all things have evolved out of watery chaos…Then, in the midst of this watery chaos, two gods come into existence…”  (The Long War Against God, Dr. Henry Morris, pp. 243-244)

"What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.”  Ecclesiastes 1:9 

In “The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition,” James Herrick writes that modern physicists claim to have irrefutable scientific proof for the foundational premises of pantheist spirituality. (p. 169)

For example, in the “Quantum Society,” physics writers Danah Zohar and Ian Marshall advocate a new esoteric science of pantheism, psychology and sociology grounded in a breathtaking range of practical implications in the fundamental physics that underlies all else in the universe lending itself to a revitalized ancient mystical pantheist and monist understanding of the nature of the mind:

 “the nature of society, and the nature of nature are all one and the same thing…linked by a common physics.” (Ibid, p. 170-171)

The two men also find that when physicists probe the deep recesses of the universe they are confronted by a void, an infinite field of energy they call the ‘quantum vacuum,’ that seems empty yet is where all physical objects originate.

The ultimate discovery of quantum physics is trumpeted as scientific proof of the basic correctness of revitalized Babylonian pantheist theology and the men call their divine energy field the quantum vacuum.  Their quantum vacuum is strikingly similar to some Hindu and Buddhist accounts of the origins of everything that exists as emanations from the Void.   Nor do Zohar and Marshall deny the similarity:

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

From Sumeria to our own age, the Void has been viewed as the ultimate ground of being and true mystical religious experience. As the beginning and ending of all reality, the Void or vacuum is “the vast sea of all else that is.”  Moreover, humans are nothing more than excited aspects or modes of the Void:

“…the vacuum has the same physical structure as human consciousness.” 

This means that since the soul of the Void and divine soul or spark of the human are one and the same substance then ‘god’ is within the human brain.  Reality is therefore within human consciousness because man is an aspect of the Void:

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

“See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.”  Colossians 2:8

The Apostle Paul warned against being taken captive by ‘elemental spirits’ that are ‘not after Christ.’  By perpetrating deceptions through the elements and powers of the cosmos, Satan lures people away from the Lord Jesus Christ and toward other beings that inhabit the universe, whether real or imagined.   What this means is that the impersonal, mystical evolutionary 'powers' ascribed by evolutionary theologians and their pagan counterparts to natural selection, chance, the Void, Gaia, Teilhard's Omega, Christ-consciousness, the Force, evolution, and other idols of mans’ imagination are the powers of elemental spirits applied to the inventions of deluded, superstitious men.

Over the past three hundred years the Word of God and the Western Christian tradition has been incrementally eclipsed by the empty deceit of dehumanizing pagan and mystical pantheist ways of thinking that have been artfully revamped and revised for modern Western consumption. 

 In “The Making of the New Spirituality,” James Herrick masterfully demonstrates how each major tenet of the Word of God has been radically reinvented and disseminated by certain scientists, occult New Age gurus, evolutionary theologians, and new religious cults as well as through books, speeches, magazines, popular TV programs, plays, radio interviews, music, and websites.

With regard to the Word of God, Herrick lists seven major tenets:

1. The supernatural authority of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures: Beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the Bible is taken to be divinely delivered, thus uniquely authoritative as a source of ultimate truth.

2. A personal, creating and wholly other God:  The Triune God is all-knowing, all-powerful, present everywhere and possesses traits of a personality—thoughts, motives, and the capacity to form relationships.  He spoke the physical and spiritual worlds into existence ex nihilo, or out of nothing.  Moreover He is neither contained in nature in any way nor equivalent with the created order, meaning that man does not have a share of God’s substance as pagan thinking maintains and evolutionary theism implies.

3. God’s creation of the human race: The Word of God teaches that the human race is a special creation of God, the only part of the creation to bear His spiritual image (mind/spirit).  Man then is not a product of strictly natural processes nor is he a dehumanized hominid or aspect of the Void.  For fifteen hundred years, Christendom and then later Protestant America, had followed St. Augustine (AD 354-430) in affirming that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent Tri-Personal God then it logically follows that each human is a person, a trinity of being — of soul, spirit, and body:

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

4. An intervening God: The Word of God affirms that God’s activity includes involvement in the lives of individual human beings.  On occasion Gods personal involvement is in the form of communication and at other times He miraculously alters the ordinary course of cause and effect.  Though He invites address and petition through prayer He is not at the command of human beings.

5. Humankind’s Fall:  The human race fell into sin at the beginning of its existence as a consequence of their refusal to accept divinely mandated limitations on their activities. The fall carried with it various catastrophic consequences including spiritual confusion, a state of spiritual separation from God and the inevitability of death.

6. Jesus Christ is God Incarnate: Jesus Christ uniquely manifested God in human form.  Jesus is a revelation of God’s nature in person and the only human being to ever fully express the divine nature.  His death and resurrection are uniquely redemptive of fallen humanity.  These events are the sole provision by the living God for the salvation of the human race.  There is no other way but His offer of salvation.

7. Human destiny and divine judgment: The Word of God insists that the eternal destiny of the human race is to be determined only by God.  Neither the present earth nor the human race exists indefinitely.  Human beings live but one life.  They do not spiritually evolve or reincarnate.    A final judgment of the human race will occur, and each individual human being will be held accountable for the life lived.

Herrick calls the new pagan and pantheist spirituality “the New Religious Synthesis” and lists seven of its major components:

1. History is not important: As evolution is the primary doctrine of the new spirituality, and it implies continuous change or transformation, then history as a record of events in space and time is as useless and absurd as are Special Creation, unchanging higher truths, moral absolutes and the two created sexes.

2. The dominance of reason:  Reason—also mind, Christ-consciousness, intellect, awareness, divine spark, pattern, mind-stream or imagination—is the divine essence in humans.  It is virtually unlimited in its potential development through scientific study, evolution, and mystical experiences. 

3. The spiritualization of science: The tool employed by divine reason to acquire new spiritual truths.

4. The animation of nature: Nature is infused with and animated by divine spirit, the Force, Zoe, christ consciousness, serpent power or life force

5. Hidden knowledge (gnosis) and spiritual progress: Gnosis is the key to spiritual insight and human progress and is the preserve of some scientists, mediums and a new class of Western shamans.  Such knowledge comes by means of science and mind-emptying psycho-spiritual technologies that lead to direct communication with the Void.

6. Spiritual evolution: Spiritual evolution is not simply change but incremental advancement over time as the initiate achieves greater and greater fusion with the divine energy field or void.  The eventual result of this process will supposedly be human divinity but in reality ends in insanity and/or possession.

7. Religious pluralism as rooted in mystical experiences of the Ultimate Source:  Mystical experiences of interconnectedness or oneness with the Void provide a basis for religious pluralism:

“Bishop William Swing, of the Episcopal Church’s Diocese of California, thinks he is building a religious bridge to the new millennium, and he wants everybody on Earth to cross it with him. His United Religions Initiative (URI) is trying to create a United Religions, a world parliament of religions, “a permanent assembly, with the stature and visibility of the United Nations, where the world’s religions and spiritual communities will gather on a daily basis, in prayerful dialogue and cooperative action, to make peace among religions and to be a force for peace among nations, to address urgent human need and to heal the earth.”  (The United Religions Initiative—Foundation for a World Religion, Lee Penn)

According to Swing’s experience of mystical oneness:

Religion is concerned with the relationship of human beings with their spiritual Origin. We believe in the universality and eternity of the Spirit. We believe that all religions derive their wisdom from that ultimate Source. Therefore, the world’s faith traditions share in common wisdom, which can be obscured by differences in religious concepts and practices. … The United Religions promotes dialogue. A theology of acceptance will help the world’s people explore common ground. Our awareness of unity within religious diversity promotes ever-increasing kinship.” (ibid)

So stunning has been the transformation of Western consciousness under the shaping influence of scientism, evolution and modern pagan and pantheist spirituality that it has now supplanted the Word of God as the religious foundation of a large and growing number of Westerners, Americans and undiscerning Christians.  James Herrick comments:

For many Westerners, the long-prophesied new spiritual age certainly has arrived.  The Revealed Word and its busy, personal God have faded into our collective spiritual memory, and bright new spiritual commitments encourage fresh religious thought.”  (Herrick, p. 16)

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” Hosea 4:6   Therefore, “do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1 ESV 

In his insightful essay, “Why Christianity Lost America?” Vishal Mangalwadi, author of “The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization,” argues that Christianity lost America because 20th-century evangelicalism branded itself as the party of faith while secularism (science, evolution, university, media) became the party of truth. This is one reason why 70% of Christian youth give up meaningful involvement with the church when they grow up.

In other words, Christians have bought into a vast deception that defines ancient pagan and pantheist spirituality as “factual” empirical science. Thus if evolution and pagan presuppositions are true then the Genesis account is not true, so why bother with Christian theism if it has been scientifically invalidated?   This is one reason why ancient pagan and pantheist spirituality revamped for our age have replaced the living, personal Triune God and His Word as the great explanation of the origin and subsequent existence of life in all of its forms.

The pagan and pantheist way of thinking represented by evolutionary biology, scientism, occult Eastern pantheist creeds, the Stoics and Epicureans are the principle enemies of the Word of God and by extension, of salvation unto life eternal.  Thus in obedience to our Lord, and as an act of Christ-like love for the faithful and all who are open to truth, we are to actively contend against these infernal pagan teachings even though our paganized culture and increasingly paganized church not only ridicule, scoff, scorn and reject us but accuse us of insanity, intolerance, racism, homophobia, transphobia, divisiveness, and hate.

1.The Materialist Faith of Communism, Socialism, and Liberalism, L. Kimball, American Thinker, Feb. 23, 2008

 

 

 

 

What is Evil?

During the course of the 20th century socialist and communist regimes brutally murdered somewhere between 160,000,000-350,000,000 men, women, and children in their maddened attempts at building the ideal society free from evil, especially the evils 'caused' by the Christian God, Original Sin, monogamous marriage, the two created sexes, and ethical restraints, cultural taboos and all conditions that make for envy:

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

Humanism, evolution, and scientism, the spawn of positivism, was common to both regimes the same as it is with Progressive Leftism, thus in the Soviet Union, the God-and-human hating Vladimir Lenin exulted that,

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

In other words, as evolution supposedly proves that man is not a person created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons but is rather a conscious product of evolution, then he is less than nothing, therefore can be enslaved or killed as desire dictates. 

Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death. He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species." It was Lenin who "decided who should disappear by virtue of having been condemned to the dustbin of history." From the moment Lenin made the "scientific" decision that the bourgeoisie represented a stage of humanity that evolution had surpassed, "its liquidation as a class and the liquidation of the individuals who actually or supposedly belonged to it could be justified." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)

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

If in your selfish, greedy, hate-filled, envy bitten heart you know you are superior to other people and more deserving than they then why not conceptually reduce them to pond scum, weeds,  or subhumans as German Socialists and Marxist Communists did or hominids, bigots, and racists as Western "elites" do?

"Subhumanism is a weird hybrid philosophy that underlies the politics and lifestyles of the Western elite—and increasingly, of the common man, who soaks it in through the media. Subhumanism uses quasi-scientific assertions about evolution, biology, and human behavior to reduce people to brainy apes, whose behavior is not so much free as goaded by instincts or determined by electrochemical sparks in our neurons." (The Five Core Principles, Christopher White, tothesource, February 3, 2015) 

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

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

As with the German philosopher Nietzsche, a lapsed Christian who declared the death of the Christian God, Communist and Nazi Socialists had stopped looking to heaven for their hopes and rewards, and declaring themselves “gods” sought power here below, declared themselves 'born good,' and in pursuit of their NWO fantasies became the very essence and face of evil.

No One Escapes Evil/Suffering

 Whether it is environmental evil resulting from hurricanes, floods, fires, tsunamis or earthquakes; physical suffering resulting from loss of limbs, cancer, or some other debilitating condition; or moral evil (sin), not one of us escapes it, and today with the Christian God dead in the hearts of a majority of modern Westerners and Americans and with little or no restraints upon the sin nature of men, not since the 20th century has the existence of evil thoughts, words, and actions been as apparent as in our largely humanized hence morally relative century where evolution and scientism are worshipped rather than our Father in heaven.  Hence the dilemma expressed by the ancient Greek nature philosopher Epicurus is repeated by millions of narcissistic, science and evolution worshipping Westerners and Americans today:

Omnipotence could, Benevolence would have prevented evil.”

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

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

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

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

"Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God." He "changed the government into tyranny" in order to turn them away from God and make them dependent upon his own power. He also would be revenged upon God "if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to be able to reach!" And he would "avenge himself on God for destroying their forefathers." (Jewish historian Josephus cited in" Who was Nimrod?" Dr. David Livingston)

In every age, the natural mind unaided by Divine Revelation has tried in vain to solve this problem.

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

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

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

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

But with Jehovah God dead in the hearts of millions of hopeless, despairing people in a century dominated by the religion of Humanism, Relativism, Evolution and Scientism, escape is the response to suffering.

For example, the Buddha concluded that suffering is caused by thirst for immortality therefore evil is inherent in the very fact of existence.  Thus by our desire to continue our personal existence we remain enmeshed in the suffering involved by our conscious awareness of and desire for life.  To escape suffering we must deny ‘self’ (soul) if we are to live devoid of all desire to exist or we shall pay for it by reincarnation in another body in which we will relive our suffering.  Only by rejecting our desire for existence can we attain to Nirvana, absorption into the Divine One Substance.

As the key to Buddha’s system is denial of ‘self’ it becomes necessary to take God away, for if there is no God it logically follows there is no source for ‘self’--soul/spirit.  If man is not God’s spiritual image-bearer then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ walked this earth:

Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if God does not exist, then the human self cannot exist either (so) he deconstructed the Hindu idea of the soul (in order that your) sense of self is an illusion.  Reality is nonself…You don’t exist.”  Liberation from suffering, the Buddha taught, “is realizing the unreality of your existence.” (The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, P. 6)

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

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

This was the philosophy of Berlin and Moscow which regarded nations and people other than their own "chosen ones" as worthy only to be sterilized, lobotomized, tormented, used for human experimentation, worked to death as slaves and sent to the wall, meaning liquidated in some fashion.  Together Berlin and Moscow murdered in excess of one-hundred million men, women, and children

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

Yet because the human condition (sin) is responsible for moral evils, the natural man never finds peace though he looks for it everywhere.

If sin does not exist and individual suffering caused by covetousness and envy are supreme evils why should the creature who envies God not murder Him and seize His powers for his own agenda as Marx and other God-killers did?  Why should envy-bitten self-centered people have to suffer by not having what they covet or conversely not destroy whatever or whoever makes for suffering?   This is why Modern Liberals,

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

Siding with evil is "good" because it both a great leveler and a form of payback:

" It's clear that Barack Obama and Eric Holder have chosen to nurse their grievances and look for opportunities for "payback."   "Both have repeatedly jumped into local law enforcement issues, far from Washington, and turned them into racial issues, long before the facts came out. These two men -- neither of whom grew up in a ghetto -- have been quick to play the role of defenders of the ghetto, even when that meant defending the kinds of hoodlums who can make life a living hell for decent people in black ghettos."  (Obama vs. America, Thomas Sowell, onenewsnow.com, Feb. 3, 2015) 

Dorothy Sayers, who translated Dante's Inferno where pride, covetousness and envy were punished in the lowest part of hell called envy 'the great leveler.' At its worst,

"...it is a destroyer – rather than have anyone happier than itself, it will see us all miserable together." (ibid, p. 66)

In this way of reasoning, why should Obama, Leftists, abortionists, pornographers, pedophiles and GOP ‘elites’ have to suffer the restraints placed on them by immutable truth, the Ten Commandments, Constitution, pro-lifers and other Conservatives?  Why should pedophiles and pederasts suffer as the result of the protective stance of parents who stand between them and those they desire to abuse (teens, children and babies) in gratification of their perverted appetites? Why should envy-bitten  sodomites and lesbians not be priests and homosexuals not have marriage if it will alleviate their suffering? And if death will be knocking on your door very quickly unless you receive an organ donation, then why not send some child to the wall in order that you can have its organs?  Wesley J. Smith reports on this latest evil:

The first case of a child being trafficked to Britain in order to have their organs harvested has been uncovered.  The unnamed girl was brought to the UK from Somalia with the intention of removing her organs and selling them to those desperate for a transplant.  Child protection charities warned that the case was unlikely to be an isolated incident as traffickers were likely to have smuggled a group of children into the country.” (Officials Discover Child Trafficked from Somalia to UK to Harvest Her Organs, Smith, Life News, Oct. 20, 2013)

Wesley asks recipients if their own death is really worse than having a child killed or maimed that they might live? To escape their own suffering some will clearly say yes.  Since their own suffering is supreme the child should be sacrificed on their behalf.

But if that isn’t evil, asked Wesley, what is?

The answer depends on whether you are a faithful, orthodox Christian or Jew whose will is in submission to our Heavenly Father or an autonomous natural man whose will is in submission to "self."

Luke 17: 37 Wherever the dead body is, there will the divine vultures of vengeance gather

"And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.”" Luke 17:37

Still unable to comprehend the full meaning of their Master's words when he spoke of his second advent being visible in all parts of the world, the disciples asked, 

"Where, Lord, will all this take place which thou hast been telling us about?" and he replied enigmatically, "where the body is, thither will the vultures be gathered together."

The imagery is taken from Job 39:30, "Where the slain are, there is she." The bird intended being most probably the great vulture, well known throughout Syria:

 "Do you ask where all this will take place? As the curtain of the future rolls up be fore my inward eye, I see the vultures of Divine vengeance flying in flocks athwart the whole area of the earth; the sky is darkened with their numbers; far as my eye can reach, I still see them. Alas l for the habitable earth, my Father's goodly world... it is rank everywhere with corruption...wheresoever the carcass is, there the vultures will gather together" (Dr. Morrison, Pulpit Commentary, Bible Hub)

In "The Nile Tributaries of Abyssinia," Sir Samuel Baker describes these carrion birds as possessing an extraordinary range of vision,

'...and though they are invisible from the earth...they are perpetually hunting in circles within sight of each other."  And when one discovers a body upon the surface of the earth, it falls from the heavens "in haste with closed wings to the bloody feast, followed quickly by many of his brethren (and suddenly) hundreds of hungry beaks are tearing at the offal."   (The Antichrist Babylon and the Coming of the Kingdom. G.H. Pember, pp. 166-167)

Vultures are scavengers that purify the whole earth from the putrid carcasses with which it would otherwise be encumbered, thus the Lord's answer to the question," Where?" was that his words applied to the whole earth. The terrible and awful scenes he had pictured would take place everywhere on an earth devoid of the knowledge of the Holy Triune God. 

At one time the citadels of Christianity, modern W. Europe and America are spreading stains of madness oozing with anarchy of selfishness, lust for power, revitalized Ba'al worship, obscene sexual immorality, human sacrifice and the love and practice of lying fueled by hatred of goodness.  The only unpolluted areas are pinpoint Lights of the faithful, havens where the lost can still find the Lord.

The dark atmosphere of our evil age is the "death of God" made tangible and it is Nietzsche, the German philosopher who announced His death who describes our upside-down climate of nothingness:

"We have killed him (God), you and I! ...But how have we done it? How were we able to drink up the sea? Who gave us the sponge to wipe away the whole horizon? What did we do when we loosened this earth from its sun? Whither does it now move? Whither do we move? ...Do we not dash on unceasingly? Backwards, sideways, forwards, in all directions? Is there still an above and below? Do we not stray...through infinite nothingness? Does not empty space breathe upon us? ...Does not night come on continually, darker and darker?" (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 108)

Such is the theater of the grotesque in which there is neither up or down, male or female, right or wrong, true or false, normal or abnormal because the living God is dead in the hearts of Westerners and Americans.  Thus as America and the West drift aimlessly in "infinite nothingness" spiritual poisons progressively dissolve the foundation of soul, mind, worth, morality, family and everything good, true, and beautiful.

“...he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.”  Luke 1:51 KJB

When people willfully fall away from the knowledge of the only true God and relentlessly transgress against His commandments, these actions effectively turn them back to their natural state.

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

"Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."  Daniel 12:10, KJB

 “Do not seal up the words of prophecy in this book, because the time is near. Let the unrighteous continue to be unrighteous, and the vile continue to be vile; let the righteous continue to practice righteousness, and the holy continue to be holy.”   Revelation 22: 10-15

In this light we are able to understand that when our Lord said, "Wherever the body is, there will the vultures be gathered together" the body collectively represents all people who can no longer respond to the appeals of the Holy Spirit because by their own choice they are completely destitute of the knowledge of God.  Thus their darkened souls are spiritually dead and incapable of any influence except that of polluting and corrupting the air around them and spreading spiritual disease and death.

The vultures therefore represent the Angels of God appointed for punishment alighting on such a society and removing the putrid carcasses of the spiritually dead:

"The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear."  Matthew 13: 41-43

.”   Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each person according to what he has done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.  Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may enter the city by its gates.  But outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”   Revelation 22: 10-15

Goetia: The Magic Way of Conjuring Beelzebul (Shiva), The Lord of Demons, and Evil Spirits

Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God." Leviticus 19:31

"Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had lamented him, and buried him in Ramah, even in his own city. And Saul had put away those that had familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land." 1 Sam. 28:3

A vast Philistine army had gathered together against King Saul and the Israelites.   And when Saul realized how ferocious the Philistines were he trembled in fear.   The elderly prophet Samuel had died and could be of no help, even though when he was alive Saul had stubbornly refused his instructions and God's will. (1 Sam. 15)  In desperation Saul inquired of the Lord, but the Lord did not answer him either by dreams or by Urim or by the prophets. (1 Sam.28:6)

In verse 7 Saul orders his servants to find for him a woman who is a medium, a conjurer of spirits, despite having previously put mediums out of the land.  A few had nevertheless remained in hiding, and one of them was a witch who practiced the dark arts of goetia inside a cave at En Dor.  Disguising himself, Saul hastened to the medium during the dark of night.  Upon finding her he requested that she conduct a séance and bring up the prophet Samuel.   The fearful witch then reminded Saul of his own law (1 Sam. 28:3), but Saul assured her that no harm would befall her and requested she bring up the dead prophet.

At her summons a spirit appeared and right away the medium asked Saul why he had deceived her, for you she said "...are Saul."    

The medium had learned the identity of her visitor from the spirit that came upon her summons, said the respected Bible commentator Matthew Henry:

"The witch, upon sight of the apparition, was aware that her client was Saul, her familiar spirit, it is likely, informing her of it." (Encounters with Familiar Spirits, Steve Wohlberg, SCP Journal 2010, Vol. 33:4-34:1, p. 14)

Saul never saw the spirit conjured by the medium.  Only she did.  The same thing occurs when modern mediums such as Sylvia Browne provide channeled readings to their clients.  

The spirit that appeared to the witch at En Dor was not the prophet Samuel but an evil spirit.   Matthew Henry believes the evil spirit was none other than the devil-- Beelzebul, lord of demons: 

"God permitted the devil....to put on Samuel's shape, that those who would not recive the love of the truth might be given up to strong delusion and believe a lie.....That the devil, by divine permission, should be able to personate Samuel is not strange, since he can transform himself into an angel of light! nor is it strange that he should be permitted to do it upon this occasion, that Saul might be driven to despair, by enquiring of the devil, since he would not...enquire of the Lord, by which he might have had comfort." (ibid, pp. 14-15)

The witch of En Dor was a practitioner of the darks arts of goetia. The Ancient Greek γοητεία (goēteia) means charm, jugglery, mesmerize, hypnotize and entrance. It also means wizard, sorcerer and shaman.  The goal is to evoke evil spirits and demons,

"bind them by conjurations, words of power, magical weapons and threats of damnation, and command them to do the magician's bidding." (Goetia and Theurgy, magic black and white?  Heterodoxology)

In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called 'the New Age Bible,' Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) admits that 'new age' evolutionary pantheism, and occult technologies being employed throughout America were at one time the private domain of ancient initiates. In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many New Age historians claim their occult religion, magic operations, and psycho-spiritual techniques (i.e., yoga, meditation) originated in Atlantis and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon,

"...and surrounding Plains of Shinar and from there disseminated throughout the earth, including Taoist doctrines of China, Mayan-Aztec teachings of Mexico and Central/South America; Great Spirit teachings of the American Indians, Hindu/Buddhist teachings of Asia, etc." (pp. 250-251)

After the Flood, the faithful Noah remained in the East and established the worship of the true God.  However, eighty years after the Flood Noah's rebellious son Ham and his sons together with other family members departed and eventually settled in the plains of Shinar where they resolved to build a tower, a monument to their own pride, vanity, ambition and rebellion against God. (The Sacred and Profane History of the World Connected, Samuel Shuckford,1808, p. 94) 

It was Noah's son Ham, according to early Church Father Clement, who preserved and revived the Mystery Religion of Atlantis/Babylon, magical incantations, and other attendant evils:

"Fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man. After the flood Ham the son of Noah...discovered this and taught it to his sons. This became ingrained into the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians. Ham died shortly after the fall of the Tower of Babel. Nimrod, called Ninus by the Greeks, was handed this knowledge and by it caused men to go away from the worship of God and go into diverse and erratic superstitions and they began to be governed by the signs in the stars and motions of the planets." (Recognitions of Clement 4.26-29)

After thousands of years Mystery Religion Atlantis/Babylon arrived in the heart of Christendom setting off an occult explosion during the time of the Renaissance that continues to unfold within the entirety of Western civilization and much of the Christian church to this day. (1)

 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)

The initial explosion resulted in an obsession with goetia resulting in the appearance of many grimoire such as The Lesser Key of Solomon, which features an Ars Goetia as its first section. It contains descriptions of the evocation of seventy-two demons, famously edited by Aleister Crowley in 1904 as The Book of the Goetia of Solomon the King.   Goetic Theurgy, another practice described in the Lesser Key of Solomon, is similar to the book's description of Goetia, but supposedly invokes 'good' spirits.

 Goetia leads to the opening of the inner or souls eye, described by practitioners of the occult as the third eye through which perception of the world is no longer limited to the physical senses.  This means that since the third eye of the witch of En Dor was opened she could 'see' and 'hear' the spirit but Saul could not. 

The third eye is known as the seat of illumination, intuition and cosmic consciousness, the 7th chakra, the All Seeing Eye of Horus and the Horn of the Unicorn:

" The Temple of Maat in early Egypt was dedicated to the process of opening the Third Eye. The Third Eye is an etheric, or fourth dimensional, eye. It acts as a sensitive receiver and transmitter, by which vibrations of many types can be translated, interpreted and dispersed into our third dimensional brains for gaining wisdom and illumination. Inner planes, thought forms, and higher entities are perceived through the 3rd eye. A clearer sense of cause and effect are acquired." (The Sixth Chakra and Opening the Third Eye, bethcoleman.net)

In Native American traditions, the third eye is associated with the ‘vision quest,’ the occult search for illumination that leads directly back to the esoteric Babylonian Kabbalah. 

Regarding the importance of the Babylonian Kabbalah to ancient Mystery Schools and Freemasonry in particular, Albert Pike, the most influential Freemason that has lived, has this to say in his Morals and Dogma:

"The Kabalah is the key to the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists. (Morals and Dogma, p. 626) 

The famous scientist, engineer, religious writer, and mystic, Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) claimed to have been instructed by beings on other planets as well as by angels during his astral plane travels.  By way of meditation and other magical operations, Swedenborg's inner eye was opened allowing him to see, hear, and interact with the demons he conjured.

Swedenborg influenced a variety of scientists, thinkers, modern science fiction writers and movie producers as well as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Joseph Smith.  In the book, "On Global Wizardry" James Herrick argues that Swedenborg was the first Western Shaman. 

A practitioner of the goetia of Kabbalah, Swedenborg described Masonry as a search after Light said Pike:

"That search leads us directly back, as you see, to the Kabbalah. In that ancient and little understood medley of absurdity and philosophy, the Initiate will find the source of many doctrines; and may in time come to understand the Hermetic philosophers, the Alchemists, all the Anti-papal Thinkers of the Middle Age, and Emanuel Swedenborg. (Morals and Dogma, p. 741)

 For the Mystery School initiate, the deeper meaning of the Kabbalah is the occult Tree of Life that symbolizes both the consubstantiality (monistic oneness) of the initiate's divine intellect with the Divine One Substance (Quantum Energy Field) above as well as the inward path in which the initiate discovers and experiences the "inner light" (also called the divine spark and inner Christ consciousness). It is a system of occult spiritual doctrines which opens up the mind and the soul to a new level of understanding—"salvation comes from within."

In his Dictionary of Mysticism and the Occult, Nevill Drury writes that the Kabbalah's Cosmic Tree of Life consists of ten spheres,

"...or sephiroth, through which—according to mystical tradition—the creation of the world came about. The sephiroth are aligned in three columns headed by the supernals and together symbolize the process by which the Infinite Light…becomes manifest in the universe." (A Short Guide to Occult Symbols: The Tree of Life, Carl Teichrib)

Taken as a whole, the Kabbalah's Cosmic Tree of Life, which also symbolizes the archetypal androgyne, has a role resembling that of the chakras in yoga.

In other words, the sephiroth symbolize the monistic oneness of the initiate's intellect with the Divine Soul (One Substance, Brahman, Energy Field) while according to occult Eastern doctrine, chakras refer to psychic centers that lie along the spine of the etheric body that awaken by way of kundalini yoga.

When kundalini is struck, serpent power awakens, uncoils and begins to rise upwards like a fiery serpent, breaking upon each chakra as it ascends, until the Shakti merges with Shiva (Satan, Beelzebul) in sahasrara chakra.  With the awakening of kundalini, the third eye opens, and heretofore unseen and often terrifying visions are seen and experienced as a process of metamorphosis (complete transformation) takes place and the initiate evolves more and more until he realizes fusion with brahman---ultimate supreme power.  Fusion however, actually means possession.  The initiate's quest ends in total possession. 

In "Warnings from Occult Practitioners," John Ankerberg and John Weldon provide warnings from practitioners of the magic way.   Though these warnings come from a flawed humanist perspective that neglects the warnings given by the Holy God they are nevertheless insightful.

Charles Tart, the editor of Transpersonal Psychologies, discusses numerous occult psycho-technologies, including those from the traditions of yoga, Taoism, alchemy, Kabbalism, Buddhism, and Sufism. In the chapter, "Patterns of Western Magic," Tart cites occultist William Gray who discusses some of the hazards along the Western magical path:

"There are many dangers on all [e.g., occult] Paths of Life, and the Western Magical Way is no exception. The worst danger is definitely imbalance in every imaginable direction.... It is a fact that frequently after initiation ceremonies there are sudden "flare-ups" of outrageous behavior in the subject; analogous to inoculation reactions. Also symptoms of paranoia may develop.... A chief hazard especially of the Magical Path is breakdown of mental and physical health if safeguards are ignored. Diseases are nonetheless real because of psychosomatic origins. Most of these troubles arise through misuse of Magic applied to mind or body, and are traceable to wrong intentions, disregard of calculable risks, carelessness, or just lack of common sense. Genuine accidents can occur as with everything else, but the majority of ills through Magic are invited ones. For example, those who poison themselves with chemical drug compounds and exhaust their physical energies while contorting their consciousness into painfully unnatural knots can scarcely complain when the account for all this has to be paid. Their mistreatment of Magic deserves small sympathy. Magic makes its own retribution on misusers." (johnankerberg.org)

Another warning comes from veteran psychic researcher Martin Ebon in an article in Psychic magazine. He admits that in the psychic world "there is much darkness and greed" and likens participation to a game of Russian roulette:

"A game in which the element of danger is ever present and must be acknowledged."

He lists representative case histories of the hazards:

 1) suicide (justified by the desire to experience the "wonders of the other world");

2) the destruction of families through adulterous liaisons or divorce among those who accept a belief in reincarnation (these were justified because psychic revelations indicated the new partner was one’s "soul mate" in a previous lifetime and hence the perfect "karmic partner" for this life),

3) major financial loss through the deception of fraudulent mediums, (justified by vital instructions from the "other side");

4) serious mental illness from various causes; and 5) bogus exorcists who financially prey on the gullible for "deliverance." (ibid, ankerberg.org)

According to Francis Huxley and Jeremy Narby, back in 1957 Westerners began participating in shamanistic sessions involving hallucinogenic plants and found, to their astonishment, that they could have out-of-body experiences similar to those described by shamans. (Modern Shamanism: Spirit Contact & Spiritual Progress, James Herrick, p. 17, "On Global Wizardry," edited by Peter Jones)

When the third eye opens or the soul comes out of its' body, it perceives or is immediately within the timeless realm of evil spirits. According to early Church Fathers, if the soul is that of a faithful believer who has died it will be met by one of Gods' Holy Angels and escorted to the third heaven. If not, it will meet with deceiving, malignant spirits such as Philemon, a winged, horned demon who supervised and inspired the writing of Carl Jung's "Seven Sermons to the Dead." Jung described the occasion like this:

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

The German actor Curt Jurgen’s terrifying out-of-body experience took him to the timeless realm called hell:

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

The Old Testament prophet Isaiah said we must choose who we will seek and serve.  The options are plain.  We can either seek the living Triune God Creator of heaven and earth or seek after physic powers and fusion with the Energy Field from Beelzebul, which is why the occult path is extremely dangerous. The infernal cost of the magic way of meeting the devil is very high.  Often the cost is eternal:

"The cost of indulging in magic is extremely high. Every example drawn from counselling work of Christians reveals the terrifying effects"  (Kurt Koch, Between Christ and Satan, p. 89)

1. Demonic Darkness: America's Invisible Wave of Evil, Linda Kimball

Beelzebul, Apollyon, and America's City of Man---Sodom and Babylon

In his magisterial work "The City of God," Church Father Augustine of Hippo (AD 354-430) contrasts the godless City of Man with the City of God. The Body of Christ is the City of God on pilgrimage through the earthly City of Man to the Eternal City, the divine commonwealth ruled by the only true God.  

Augustine writes of the City of God:  

"For if we inquire whence it is, God created it; or whence its wisdom, God illumined it; or whence its blessedness, God is its bliss.  It has its form by subsisting in Him; its enlightenment by contemplating Him; its joy by abiding in Him.  It is; it sees; it loves.  In God's eternity is its life; in God's truth is its light; in God's goodness is its joy."

 In stark contrast, the architects of the City of Man are Apollyon, the destroyer and angel of the bottomless pit, and Beelzebul, the prince of demons. These two high-ranking evil angels, together with their legions of evil spirits, dominate, control, and influence the darkened minds and perverse passions of the citizens of the City of Man.  Thus the City of Man is a Sodom and Babylon of rebellious, unrepentant, maddened, narcissistic, self-serving bestial humans set apart from the Holy Triune Creator:

"Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.  I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not." ( Isaiah 66:1-4)  

The City of Man is characterized by the will-to-power and relentless abominations of its citizens hence its ultimate appointment with the Destroyer and its bondage to Beelzebul.  Beelzebul relieves his slaves of the burdensome task of having to think for themselves and choose between good and evil in return for his permission to act upon every evil thought and impulse freely without the burden of either guilt or shame. Thus the City of Man is characterized by idolatry and myriad evils since its' citizens are spiritually dead natural men (1 Cor. 2:14) who despise the Lord, His statutes, Commands, and covenants and instead are allowed by Beelzebul and Apollyon to run roughshod over each other using their own relativistic rules. Above all, said Augustine, the City of Man "is itself ruled by the lust of rule."

On an individual level, the lust of rule, or will-to-power is an insatiable craving for control, advantage, self-glorification and self-gratification that drives people to commit evil via obliteration of the knowledge of their sin through rationalization until the point is reached where evil is occurring constantly and for whatever reason.  

Rationalization is a form of self-deception that compromises, befouls, and sears the conscience so as to make tolerable and acceptable thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and motives that would otherwise be unacceptable. In this way forbidden thoughts of theft, rape, murder, gross sexual fantasies, fantasies of sadistic infliction of pain and other perverse desires and actions are permissible.   Robert Reilly comments:

"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)  

The lust for power first appeared in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3:4-6) and unleashed all of the subsequent evil, suffering and death in the world. After the Fall, an unrepentant, envy-bitten Cain brutally murdered his brother Abel and afterward he and his sons established the first pre-flood City of Man. 

In the post-flood world Babylon was the first City of Man.   Established by Ham and his sons and symbolized by its Tower, an astral temple, it has the distinction of being the mother of the first 'God is dead' rebellion.  Moreover, the Babylonian Enuma Elish is the original (anti-creation) evolutionary cosmogony based on the idea that the universe and life evolved into existence under its' own powers.  Babylon thus serves as the source and model for all ancient and modern evolutionary cosmogonies, Mysteries, gnosis, secret initiations, nature religions, occult science, exalted transgender priesthood, sexual perversions, slavery, human sacrifice and evolutionary philosophy around the world. 

In keeping with Cain's contemporary counterparts, that is, Western progressive socialist, New Age and Trans-humanist political and social leaders together with apostatizing Christian ministers, intellectuals and rank and file Americans, Old Testament Jewish religious and cultural leaders were far more interested in accommodating themselves to Ba'al/Hadad (dying and rising Sun God), Asteroth (Gaia) and the Babylonian (Canaanite) City of Man and its world system than to the only true God.  

In his book, "Nazi Oaks: The Green Sacrifice of the Judeo-Christian Worldview in the Holocaust," pastor R. Mark Musser writes that the adoption of Canaanite nature worship with its evolutionary cosmogony and contradictory lifestyle of sexual license and human sacrifice was "foisted upon the people by the cultivated crowd, the elites of society."  (p. 49)

 Even so, most commoners enjoyed nature worship, 

"...as much as their leaders, leaving prophets of the Old Testament sometimes comparing themselves to jackals (Micah 1:8), or roaming the streets of Jerusalem looking for at least one righteous man (Jeremiah 5:1-14).  As such the population at large was completely oblivious to the approaching doom which the Old Testament prophets foresaw.  The fact that this downhill process was over 200 years in the making only contributed further to their false sense of security." (Musser, pp. 50-51) 

Isaiah 57 records the loss of spiritual leadership that like its' modern apostate counterpart throughout the West and here in the American City of Man, contributes to the suicidal demise of the nation where the righteous man perishes, 

"....and no man takes it to heart; and devout men are taken away, while no one understands.  For the righteous man is taken away from evil."  

Isaiah is saying that while good men die off and are taken away to Paradise, in the earthly City of Man no good men replace them.  Left behind are the self-loving, evolution and nature worshipping rebels:  

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

Musser's summary of Isaiah 57 bears a chilling similarity to the American City of Man:

"Here is seen nature worship, sexual abandon, and child sacrifice all rolled up into one outdoor whore house of death." (p. 49)  

Thousands of years after the fall of Babylon the second post-flood ‘death of God’ and Tower building project was set in motion by Beelzebuls rebellious human-tools under the banner of utopia, 'science' and Darwin's dehumanizing evolutionary theory.   The location of the second Tower was Russia and it was the apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky who foretold its' catastrophic rise in the form of genocidal totalitarian socialism (murderous hatred, envy, and will-to-power writ large).  More than 40 years before the Bolshevik Revolution, Dostoevsky declared "a second tower of Babel stands in place of the high ideals created by Christ."   Through 'scientific' application of Darwinian principles to mankind,

 " The sublime view of human nature sinks down to the view of an animal herd and, under the banner of social love, shows entirely unconcealed its contempt for mankind."   (Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz)  

Describing God-hating rebels as devilish Gnostic irreligionists Dostoevsky went on to predict the ultimate collapse of the second Tower.  But despite its’ collapse, said Dostoevsky, the rebellion against God will continue to deepen and spread and future rebels will finally succeed in raising the 3rd and final Tower with the help of lord of demons---Beelzebul.

Even before the collapse of the Russian Tower America's Christian-based religious and socio-political society was undergoing a stealthy transformational process under the guiding hands of Beelzebuls tares---Progressives and fellow travelers on the highway of evolutionary neo-Gnostic pagan spiritual ideology.  This spiritual ideology is a historical and worldwide movement of enormous economic and cultural power that for centuries has sought to dominate and transform our world into a globally socialist New World Order--- a totalitarian City of Man on a global scale.

Already it is the case in the American City of Man that Beelzebul deems it a mark of sophistication for his scientifically enlightened tares to parrot the question of the worldly Pontius Pilate, "What is truth?" while their mindless followers proudly reject the Holy Trinity and the American flag in favor of Sharia and the sickle and hammer of the former Soviet Union, a godless totalitarian criminal regime responsible for the murder of more than 130,000,000 men, women, and children with half being Christians. (Soviet Flags Fly Proudly at DNC Convention March in Philly, Gateway Pundit, July 25, 2016)

Greek sophists and Pilate were forerunners of America's elite pagan sophists, modern Cains who for the most part, are our progressive socialist politicians, jurists, entertainers, news media, apostate theologians, and other so-called 'scientifically enlightened sophisticates' who dominate both political parties, academe, media, Hollywood, science, the economy, military and all culture shaping and information disseminating institutions. These modern Cains have infiltrated seminaries, preach heresy from pulpits, run our schools and big business and imagine themselves entitled to reshape an America they regard as composed of un-evolved hominids--- backward, bitter clingers of Bibles, guns, and Constitutional rights. 

Under Beelzebul's and Apollyon's guiding hands, America is rapidly deconstructing and transitioning into an unholy City of Man formed by unrepentant sinners and their unholy loves: of self and self-glorification, of control, power, perversion, and contempt of God and the Body of Christ.  Currently, the most obvious example of its unholy love is Beelzebul's imperious demand that society accept and conform to the idea of gender fluidity and transgenderism. What this madness is really all about is a legal ban on sex distinctions leading to the criminalization of "He made them male and female."  Following the triumph of that evil comes the criminalization of the traditional one-man, one-woman family ending in state regulation of personal relationships resulting in consolidation of power under Beelzebul and his human tares.

Ba'al (Beelzebuls') Victory Arch

When  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 All Seeing Eye is the U.N.'s "god" of the nations depicted by a magic cube in the U.N.'s meditation room.  The All Seeing Eye is the symbol of Ba'al/Beelzebul.

 Ba'al/Beelzebul is also the Egyptian Sun god Osiris who committed incest with his sister Isis, resulting in the birth of himself as the Sun god Horus, the god of the dead.  In Thrace and Greece Ba'al/Osiris is Dionysus, the god of pleasure, partying, wine, human sacrifices and orgiastic sexual rites. To the Phrygians, he is Sabasius, a horned solar god whose emblem is the serpent.  Elsewhere he is Jupiter, Orion, Plutus, Iswara, the Winged One, Nimrod, Adoni, Hermes, Prometheus, Zeus, Bacchus, Ormuz, Apollo, Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14), Atus, Bacchus, Shiva, and Molech.  (Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, Dr. Cathy Burns, p. 359) 

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 Baphomet (Ba'al), symbol of the Void, or Mind of the Universe and its seething serpent-powered evolutionary energies depicted by the U.N.'s magic cube.  

The androgynous horned deity was adored by scantily clad figures repeatedly prostrating themselves before him/her. As the horned god made his/her appearance horrific wailing and screaming was heard over the audio system. Next, Baphomet/Ba'al/Beelzebul 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)

The Arch of Ba’al appeared in Italy recently, accompanying yet another summit of world leaders while attracting over two million visitors.  World leaders are especially drawn to the arch. In fact, it was assembled as the centerpiece for the World Government Summit, an international meeting of global leaders in Dubai last February. The Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) has joined in the project with Oxford University’s Institute of Digital Archaeology (IDA) and Harvard University.  (Arch of Ba’al Attracting Millions of Visitors, May Model Sinister ‘Temple of Darkness’: Rabbi, Breaking Israel News, June 28, 2017)

The first appearance of the arch was at London’s Trafalgar Square last year for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Week:

The unveiling coincided with Beltane, the most important pagan holiday of the year,

"...ushering in a 13-day period known in the occult as “the Blood Sacrifice to the Beast”, which was traditionally celebrated with child sacrifice and bisexual orgies.” (ibid)

"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)

But for a few islands of light, the West and America are roiling waters of darkness under control of Beelzebul and Apollyon as they build their latest City of Man, a global endeavor this time.  This means that Ba'als Arch of Triumph is not a victory for globalists but a sign that globalists are tares of Beelzebul and Apollyon whose work they do:

"Do we read of Christ going forth to sow the "good seed" (Matt.13:24), then we also read of the enemy going forth to sow his "tares" -- an imitation wheat (Matt.13:25). Do we read of "the children of God," then we also read of "the children of the wicked one" (Matt.13:38). Do we read of God working in His children "both to will and to do of His good pleasure" (Phil.2:13), then we are also told that the Prince of the power of the air is "the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience" (Eph.2:2)."   The Antichrist Will Be the Son of Satan, Arthur W. Pink

No matter how promising a civilization appears at its start, in this fallen world it inevitably collapses into a City of Man under direction of Beelzebul and Apollyon.  This being so the faithful must hold fast to our Lords promise in the last book of the Bible: 

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

The Technocratic Utopian World Order: Why Proclaiming Jesus Christ the Word Became Flesh is Offensive

Citing recent polls, Dr. Peter Jones notes that most young people “have graded Christianity, and so far, the grades aren’t looking good.” Young believers do not want the name “Christian” because of “the baggage that accompanies the label."  

The most ethical, humane movement in two thousand years of Western history is now covered in abject shame, and main-line churches, faced with a dramatic loss of members and funds, are redefining themselves through an intense engagement with the surrounding secular world,

…to blur the boundaries between religion and the broader society.”  (1)

Faithful, orthodox Christianity is now despised because influential segments of the culture have converted in one form or another to religious paganism,

“... and have thus abandoned the fundamental worldview notions of orthodox Christianity.” (1)

Large segments of American culture---especially the ruling class--- have converted to religious paganism, and it is Technocratic Trans-Humanism's idolatry, Evolution "god," and Scientism that set the stage as long ago as 1850:

"Scientism rejects all philosophical, religious, and metaphysical claims to understand reality, since the truth it portends cannot be validated by the Scientific Method.  Thus, science is the absolute and only access to truth and reality."  (2)

Modern Technocracy and Trans-humanism are products of the utopian notion that science and technology can fulfill the utopian dream of ridding the world of evil by perfecting society and engineering a New Man through application of Darwinian science.  The scientific engineering of a new man is based on the proposition that since man has evolved over millions of years from a sub-human past then logically he will evolve over time into something better or “post human.”  Furthermore, it is the Elect, the post-human god-men who can scientifically engineer our evolution:

"Transhumanism is the ultimate goal of Technocracy … a meta-movement: the idea that the works of Man’s hands can save Humanity—hence, technology and science forms the basis of a Technocratic society. Transhumanism takes this to its ultimate conclusion: The development of the post-human or neo-human.”

 "Based on the premise that evolution is true, Transhumanism looks to shape the human species through the direct application of science. In other words, by employing technology we can take hold of the evolutionary process and change it as we desire, thus becoming the masters of our future. To this end, advocates of Transhumanism ascribe to a multitude of possible options.”  (3)

 Dr. Martin Erdmann, who was a Senior Scientist at the University Hospital in Basel, Switzerland, researched the ethical implications of Nanotechnology and Transhumanism.   Erdmann concludes:

"Transhumanist philosophy promotes the idea of human enhancement by technological means. In its extremes, futuristic concepts like intelligence enhancement (up to “superintelligence”) using techniques like genetic engineering, psychopharmacology, anti-aging therapies, neural interfaces, wearable/implantable computers, long-lasting internal organ replacement, mental uploading and so forth are propagated from prominent positions like the US Nanotechnology Initiative and the Oxford University philosophy department.”

 “…transhumanists urge the human race to seize control of its destiny, casting off the restrictive and pernicious dogmas of bygone eras, as they see it. It is a way of thinking about the future that is based on the premise that the human species in its current form does not represent the end of our development but rather a comparatively early phase.”  (4)

The world is being actively transformed according to a philosophy called Technocracy, and it "is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world."  This wrenching transformation is sponsored and orchestrated by a global elite "led by David Rockefeller's and Zbigniew Brzezinski's Trilateral Commission."  (2)

 The tentacles of Technocracy include programs such as,

 "Sustainable Development, Green Economy, Global Warming/Climate Change, Cap and Trade, Agenda 21, Common Core State Standards, Conservation Easements, Public-Private Partnerships, Smart Growth, Land Use, energy Smart Grid, de-urbanization, and de-population."  (2)

 Religious Foundations of Technocracy and Trans-Humanism

Trans-humanism is a dualistic neo-Gnostic religiously and spiritually pagan worldview consisting of a blend of revitalized mystery religions, Gnostic pagan and Eastern occult pantheist elements and magic science undergirded by a strong Darwinian impulse.  Its conception of ultimate reality is philosophically monist. The parent of monism and evolution is the Mesopotamian occult worldview, the Babylonian mystery religion and its 'dying and rising' Sun god that gave birth to all of the world's ancient and modern mystery religions.  Thus today, the world’s ‘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 Energy Field, the singularity (symbolized by a serpent biting its tail) from which emanate evolving creative energies (serpent power) extending into the psyche of mankind.  (5)

Dressed in the language of science, the Technocratic version of monism is holism.  Like monism, holism is the view that ultimate reality is an energized unified whole, a machine of life and of the Universe itself that evolves toward,

“…ever more complex states, as if a ghost were operating the machine."  Within this entire machine, man is a unit, a holon "controlled by other holons greater than it, all of which are in a continuous state of evolution to a higher, more complex form.  Such a complete system of holons is...a holarchy."  (2)

 Within the philosophy of holism, all existing things can be described by a single system since mind and matter are formed from and reducible to the "ghost” (evolution/divine energy) operating the machine. With Darwinism for instance, God, mind, and spirit are reducible to the ultimate reality (energy field).  In this scheme of things, divine energy emanating from the energy field operates within the neural complexity of the brain, meaning that divine consciousness (God reduced to divine energy) operates within the brains of the "enlightened" or "illumined" Elect, or Pure. This idolatrous way of thinking is in direct contrast to the Biblical teaching that though men are made in the spiritual image of God they do not partake of God’s being or "ghost operating the machine." (Gen. 1:27).

Trans-humanism's worldview is grounded in a neo-Gnostic inverted exegesis that places the genesis of everything existing at the bottom, in a void, starting perhaps from a movement, and then miraculously evolving upward by the amazing powers of the "ghost."  This evolutionary account affirms on one hand that living beings created themselves and on the other that their spirits are free, meaning untouched by the Holy Triune Creator, the evil demiurge responsible for trapping free spirits in evil matter.  Hence the Trans-humanist desire to get rid of their "meat machines" by merging them with machines:

"…inserting technology into human brains is not the only thing going on. Some scientists also want to insert human brains into technology." (6)

The view that the material realm is a hell created by an evil demiurge (the Holy Trinity) is why a number of physicists and Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association, put forward a 'scientific' theory that the world we live in is a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings.  Within the context of this theory, the Holy Trinity is the expression of an ego-driven consciousness– a projection of artificial intelligence that has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent human beings from remembering that they are divine spirits whose real home is the Divine Energy Field or Pleroma.

“The thing that hath 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, KJB

In "The Pagan Temptation," Dr. Thomas Molnar (1921-2010), a Catholic philosopher, historian, and political theorist, writes that from Plato to Plotinus it was held as axiomatic that the fall was not of man into sin but of divine sparks into the evil material realm.  The fall was either inexplicable or explained as punishment in an earthly hell. At any rate it was a plunge from being as one with or an aspect of the monistic Ultimate Reality into the multiple, or binary.  Binary means for example that before the fall good and evil were not distinct one from the other and rather than two distinct sexes, male/female was androgynous.  Additionally, the androgyne (transgender) was not simply a combination of opposites, but a uniquely transformed being:

Hermes called me the Sun and the Moon. Riplaeus called me the green lion. Our author called me hermaphrodite, but I pay no attention to that. It makes no difference. Nor does it matter what the sophists [philosophy teachers] call me, for they learn nothing for all their trouble except: I am One Substance, not two…” (Hermaphrodite Child of the Sun and Moon, translated by Mike Brenner, the Alchemists Closet)

John 1: 1-5 The Word Became Flesh

After the fall, good and evil are opposites and there are two distinct sexes. This being the case, the revolutionary impact of Christian teaching about two distinct and unbridgeable dimensions (supernatural and natural), the Incarnation, the Word became flesh, the Resurrection, the fall of man, two created sexes, Ten Commandments and Gospel of salvation was nothing less than a scandal to ancient pagan sages and completely unacceptable to their modern counterparts. Thus Karl Marx, a modern neo-Gnostic declares:

The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed.” (7)

The Genesis account of creation ex nihilo is repugnant because if true meant the physical realm is not evil because it is of God’s creation, therefore it does not pre-exist creation or come into existence by way of a Big Bang and evolver deity.  

The Incarnation was utterly repulsive to pagan sages since for the Ultimate Reality (Psalm 115: 5) to incarnate within an evil body was as unthinkable as it is for Trans-humanists.  In “Against the Christians” (frag. 77) Porphyry, disciple of Plotinus and Arnobius, writes:

How can one admit that the divine should become an embryo, that after his birth he is put in swaddling clothes, that he is soiled with blood and bile, and worse things yet?” (8)

All of this is behind Trans-humanism's ferocious rejection of Jesus Christ, which by implication denies that there ever was a creation ex nihilo or real personal Creator.  But the Word is also the “true witness” and the “Amen,” and such denials will only be “unto their own destruction” (2 Peter 3:16) 

Throughout the contemporary West and America Technocratic Trans-humanism's idolatry and Scientism with its Elect and exalted priesthood of scientists and social engineers is the only allowable source of truth about universal reality, earth (Gaia), and the nature of man--an evolving holon, making Trans-humanism's idolatry, Scientism, and Evolution "god" the West's three most powerful fortresses of mind:

The gods of the nations are not creator gods and (as) Jeremiah puts it, the gods that did not create the world will perish, as indeed they have.  In our own times idolatry, which was a universal substitute for the Creator God, has been replaced by the widely held theory of evolution.  Both are substitutes for the concept of the Creator God.  Just as the ancients and the heathen today deified and worshipped the creature as the creator…so for western secular man the modern theory of evolution deifies nature, and acknowledges it as creator of all we see around us…and in this way the God who made the world is as effectively shut out of the minds of those who are enjoying the blessings of His creation as He was by the false religions of idolatry.  Just as the idolaters could not see the foolishness, indeed the stupidity, of worshipping gods (that) have no life nor purpose nor mind, so modern believers in the theory of evolution cannot see the foolishness of that theory. The Bible says that if we refuse to have the Creator God in our mind, God gives us up to a reprobate mind.”  (Dr. Broughton Knox, principal of Moore Theological College, Sydney, 1959-1985, Creation Ministries International)

Technocracy is an utterly nihilistic, global religion and reigning superstition and madness-producing factory of the once-Christian West and America.  It is promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against the Holy Trinity 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, a teaching of ancient mystery religions that holds 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) 

Today, Technocracy and Trans-Humanism are the foundational and all-controlling thought-systems dominating all of modern Western and American culture. Thus its evolution "god” and monism are taken for granted throughout college curriculum and strongly influence biological and earth sciences, psychology, anthropology, sociology, economics, law, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines. And thanks to compromising Christian intellectuals, theologians and seminarians, for over one hundred years it has been moving into and subsequently paganizing the Christian church over and across the entire denominational spectrum. (9)

Technocracy:  Contemporary Utopian World Order

In his masterful book, “Utopia: The Perennial Heresy,” Thomas Molnar pointed out that in every age the utopian finds ample evidence for his belief that his age is a penultimate phase ready to usher in the last definitive evolutionary leap of being.  (10)   

But since utopian systems are illusory patterns of thought with their own logic, expectations, and interpretive mechanisms, reality and real data do not substantially influence the utopian thinker since he is able to fit the data, even the Word of God, onto the Procrustean bed of his desires and to find encouragement in the most evil events.  Thus he dismisses realistic appraisals of his utopian schemes as from those who are against Progress, Evolution, Science, Peace, and Plenty.  He remains indifferent to the suffering and death caused by application of his illusory patterns of thought because he rejoices over the existence of evil and chaos since out of chaos arises the new and perfected order.  (10)

Modern utopianism has even invented new forms of evil such as genocide, concentration camps, mind-conditioning techniques and psychological warfare.

The ‘patients’ (mass-man) of psychological conditioning have a well-developed utopian consciousness.  They know for instance that the Holy Trinity, if He exists at all, is evil; that global warming and climate change are real and present dangers and that Science and its priests are the only source of truth.  Mass-man also knows that mankind is near the end of evolution and now possesses the inner resources for self-salvation. (10)  

The exalted leaders of utopia are post-humans (demi-gods), the Pure Elect who are closer to the Super Consciousness (God) than mere mortals. Thus mass-man worships the Elect, the guarantors of salvation (complete security) because they lift responsibility from the shoulders of mass-man and allow him to sin freely and without guilt.  Additionally, the Elect assume the burden of thinking, of decision making, and planning for the future and the building of a virtuous New World Order.  The New World Order is virtuous because it prefigures the final fusion of mass-man awaiting its next cosmic-divine adventure.  

Monistic thinking is unmistakable in all messianic utopian thinking, which considers Christianity an arch-enemy because the utopian message of salvation is utterly incompatible with basic Christian doctrine, that of original sin,

“…with its vision of history as the story of the Fall, and its denial of man’s power to attain salvation by his own exertions.  The dichotomies of soul and body, etc., stood condemned before the majesty of the oneness of Life and oneness of History…” (10)

But man cannot survive as man, that is, an individual soul with a conscience, when he is despiritualized and deprived of the only true Creator God and reduced to a holon or aspect of evolutionary energies:

If only matter and its evolutionary forms exist, then man, too, is only matter, however complex and superior to other forms he may be.  If he is not a reflection of the divine being, then he is in no sense sacred and final, and new forms of evolution may supersede him.  In recognition of this, the search for such new forms has always been the ultimate quest of utopians (since man) as we have known him is now being overcome by the new evolutionary form…coalesced mankind.” (10)

Despiritualized, coalesced mass-man, begotten by the Sovereign World State, existing in totalized society is regarded as a unit of the work force, a part of the whole, made for the whole, and relatively valueless in himself.

Utopianism has its basis in hatred of God and the world He created.  In order for the utopian to assert his mastery over the world and mankind he must ‘murder’ or otherwise eliminate God, thereby liberating the Elect to define the deconstruction and transformation of creation and man under the sign of science.  

Behind all of this is the burning ambition and delusional hopes of the zealot in his conviction that only the Elect have knowledge, which is power.  It was against such temptation that man was warned under the Tree of Life.  But the utopian wants to perfect the imperfect creation as an act of vengeance against the God who drove men from Paradise.  (10)

"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit following the tradition of men according to the rudiments of the world, and not in accordance with Christ.”  Colossians 2:8

Psychologically conditioned, confused, battered, and demonized, Christians have bought into a Big Lie that defines Technocratic Trans-Humanism's idolatry, Scientism, evolution "god" and utopian fantasy as “factual” science, therefore the only source of truth. Thus if Technocracy’s utopian worldview is a fact of 'science,' then the personal Creator God, Genesis account and Gospel are not true, so why bother with Christianity if it has been scientifically invalidated?

The origins of our contemporary paganized culture plunge deep into apostasy, idolatry, nihilism, hatred of the Holy Trinity, madness, utopianism, the spiritually pantheist occult, and other evils while its future projects,

“... include the silencing of Two-ist Christianity altogether. It can only be countered by courageous Christian believers from this rising generation who are willing to engage the revolutionary intellectual “strongholds,” the “arguments and “lofty opinions raised against the knowledge of God,” in order to “take every thought captive to obey Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5) with “transformed minds” (Romans 12:2) by understanding and imitating “the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:16). Just do it!”  (Peter Jones)

The Worldview of Satan

The idea that man can become God was first whispered in Eve’s ear by Satan, the father of the occult worldview, that is, the evolving universe of matter and energy.  In condensed form it began when the Devil lied to mankind's first parents, saying "You will surely not die," "Your eyes will be opened," and "You will be like God," "knowing good and evil." (Gen. 3:4,5)

Respectively, these lies suggest that man will live forever even if he rebels against the commands of the Triune God; that  by his own innate powers he can discover secret enlightenment revelatory of both his true identity as God and the knowledge of the universe of evolving matter and psychic energies; that by self-will and rebellion against God he can, by way of magic and help from spirits, become godlike and gain forbidden psychic powers; and finally, that a condition of self-control and moral purity is counterproductive since only personal experiences and final transcendence of good and evil will make him like God. 

From the pre-flood world to the post-flood world of Ham and Nimrod on through to our own time, the basic foundations of the occult worldview consistently teach the following elements:

1. Monism and evolution:  Though there are different forms of monism the common denominator of them all is the idea that the universe and everything in it consists of or is reducible to one substance in process of evolution.  In direct contrast to the Biblical teaching that though men are made in the spiritual image of God they do not partake of God's being (Gen. 1:27), with Darwinism for instance, God, mind, and spirit are reducible to one substance: matter in the form of the neural complexity of the brain, meaning that divine consciousness (God reduced to psychic energy) operates within the neural complexity of man's brain.  So God is within the brain of man:

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

Mystical forms of monism characteristically accept some form of pantheism, exemplified by for example, Teilhard de Chardin'sAdvaita Hindu pantheist New Religion and Leonard Sweet's Quantum Spirituality based in Teilhard's conceptions.  Advaita (monistic) Hinduism teaches the one ultimate reality of which everything consists is Nirguna Brahman (an impersonal God-force or Void) while Teilhard's system reduces everything to Omega---his version of Brahman.

It is the monistic premise of both Darwinism and mystical occult monism that makes them fundamentally anti-Christian.  In Dr. Gary North's excellent evaluation of monism, "Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism," North writes that,

 "...there is a permanent, unbridgeable gap between the ultimate being of God and the derivative being of creatures.  There is a Creator-creature distinction (meaning that) men do not partake of God's being...they are not of the same substance as God.  There is no more fundamental doctrine than this one.  Significantly, in every form of occultism this principle is denied....Satan's old temptation to man hinges on his denial and man's denial of the Creator-creature distinction..."  (pp. 59-61)

2. God is ultimately impersonaland one with nature as opposed to God as wholly 'other' (supernatural), personal and loving (John 3:16)

3. Man's true identity is God since he is one with (shares) God's being as opposed to man created in God's spiritual image though not sharing the being of God. (Gen. 1:27)

4. Since there is only one substance, then evil is in harmony with the amoral god-substance or force.  In contrast, Scripture teaches that evil operates in opposition to God's holy nature (1 Peter 1:14, 15; 3:12)

5. Gnostic illumination or enlightenment (salvation) is achieved through self-realization (awareness of personal divinity) by various occult spiritist practices, i.e., séances, spells, automatic writing, meditation, hypnosis, Ouija boards, shamanic drumming, Kundalini yoga, visualization, mind-altering drugs, transformational festivals, trance music and centering.  

Occult salvation is the antithesis of salvation based on the atonement (Christ's suffering and death for sin) and received as a free gift by grace through faith in God and Christ (John 3:16; 5:24; 6:47; 17:3)

6. Psychic or spiritual powers resulting from initiation into occult spiritist practices (see above) that open the mind, or third eye according to occult lore, to contact with and even possession by aggressively hostile spirits and are often used for personal power.   In contrast, Scripture teaches that spiritual gifts are distinct from and work in opposition to occult psychic powers.  They are given by God to His people for service to others ( 1 Cor. 12:4-11; 14:3)

7. Eternal cyclic incarnation into different bodies over thousands or millions of years or reabsorption (annihilation and/or personal extinction) into the impersonal substance.   In opposition, Scripture teaches personal immortality in either eternal heaven or hell (Matthew 25:46)

In monism, whether Darwinian or mystical occult versions, the traditional Western Judeo-Christian ways of thinking and perceiving are rejected because "all is one,"  This means there is no ultimate distinction between Jesus Christ and Satan, male and female, true and false, good and evil, moral and immoral, bent and straight, holy and unholy, or right and wrong because "true reality" (the one substance) is beyond the illusory categories associated with the natural (physical) world. In other words, murder, genocide, rape, lesbianism, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, lying, cheating and theft cannot be considered evil if evil itself is in harmony with the divine one substance.

While nothing can really be considered evil, nor can anything really be considered good.  So love, honesty, integrity, courage, fidelity, and commitment cannot be considered good and worthy for the same reason evil cannot be considered evil.

Finally, there is no such thing as personhood (genuine personality)  because true reality (the one substance) is not personal.  In other words, because the One God in three Persons who made all men in His spiritual image, thereby endowing all men with genuine personality (personhood) is an illusion, then so are ideas of personhood and unalienable rights from the living, personal God.  In fact, since personality is supposedly a hindrance to occult spiritual enlightenment, it must be destroyed. 

The occult worldview of Satan has been with us from the pre-flood days of Noah.  Today its' most highly developed forms are Wicca and Advaita Hinduism and derivatives such as the occult New Age spirituality overspreading the West and America and penetrating into the whole body of the Christian church.

Hobbit Truth-Warriors in Sauron's American Mirkwood

"In this postmodern age many think that no one can know Truth. It is true that we cannot know truth if there is no revelation from God."  – Vishal Mangalwadi

Dr. Vishal Mangalwadi (1949---), founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement, is an Indian philosopher and social reformer.   He has lectured in over 40 countries and published seventeen books including "The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization!"  Mangalwadi's Revelation Movement exists to re-establish the cultural authority of VERITAS (Truth) because God has revealed Truth in scripture and God has given man the mind and clues to help us discover what He has concealed. Proverbs 25:2.  (RevelationMovement.com)

In a message entitled "The Kingdom of Darkness Encircles North America," Vishal writes that his third visit to North America opened his eyes to the magnitude and power of a massive force of darkness facing the faithful.  Because darkness has deeply penetrated much of the body of the church it is hard to estimate how much essential theology and how many churches in North America have been lost.  

Nevertheless, there are truth-warriors determinedly digging in their heels against the darkness rapidly encompassing both the church and North America.  Vishal compared these truth-warriors to Jedi knights and the Hobbits of middle earth who carried the day against Sauron:

"When Luke Skywalker joined the Star Wars saga, he had no idea that he was a Jedi. Nor did the tiny, motley crew that teamed up with him know what they were up against. To mix metaphors, they were little Hobbits, unaware of the importance of their mission."

The Return of Sauron’s Kingdom of Darkness

 During the “Fading Years,” many things of “beauty and wonder remained on earth…” but also many things of “evil and dread.” Then all things began to change.  A living darkness crept slowly through Greenwood the Great, and fear walked there in shadowy glades.  Then the name of the forest was changed to Mirkwood, for the “nightshade lay deep there,” and few dared pass through.  Whence the evil came few could tell,

"...and it was long ere even the Wise could discover it.  It was the shadow of Sauron and the sign of his return...and all folk feared the Sorcerer of Dol Guldur, and yet they knew not at first how great was their peril."   (The Silmarillion, J.R.R. Tolkien, p. 299)  

Sauron’s Kingdom of Darkness is visible in both the devastating loss of God's revealed Truth, moral law and norms in our culturally desolate, increasingly lawless secular-atheist society as well as in the failure of Americans, within and without the whole body of the Christian Church, to restrain their own corrupt passions. (James 1:14-15)  

Devilish depravity in the guise of special rights and privileges such as free phones, free gas, free housing, and free condoms together with the myth of evolution as scientific fact, perverse sex-education for tots and teens, same-sex and kundalini-Holy Spirit equality, the lie of global warming, paganized Christianity and a long list of destructive freedoms such as unfettered killing as 'choice,' and ‘gay’ marriage and pornography and sodomy as Constitutionally guaranteed rights.   All of this depravity and more has become dictatorial both outside of the Church, where Sauron's 'secular' servants of sin demand all others give up their God-given rights in gratification of depraved desires, and within, where Sauron’s 'Christian' servants of sin sweep away the essentials of the faith to make room for mindless, self-centered values resulting in lawless churches:

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:4-10)

Lawless churches are nothing more than Sauron's social clubs for his servants of sin where they,

“…exercise no discernment, enforce no standards, and teach more pop psychology than timeless truth. Naturally, lawless churches are populated with lawless Christians, the greatest absurdity of them all. “What fellowship have righteousness and lawlessness?” 1 Corinthians 6:14 (How can I walk North and South at the same time? Lawless Christians", Dan Popp, Renew America, Mar. 10, 2012)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who counseled and delivered thousands of people suffering from demonic bondage in its various forms throughout the world argues that sin cuts a person off from God. Sin opens the door to Sauron, meaning to demonic oppression and possession seen in relation to psychological distortions having the following predominant characteristics: narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature, violent temper, belligerence, meanness, abnormal sexuality, blasphemous thoughts and rebellious, bigoted attitudes toward Christ and God, conscious atheism, and destructive, murderous rages. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

Cutting Edge Ministries David Bay identifies the ‘values’ of the lawless as Satanic, and adds that lawless Americans at every level of society, both in and out of the church, have embraced Satanic values with no conscious awareness that they have done so.  When a people believe in nothing higher than 'self,' they make personal selfishness, intellectual arrogance, irrational feelings, lying, covetousness, physical lust, hate and envy their gods.  The elevation of these Satanic values produces in them other strong desires: for power over others, for the amassing of material possessions and the acquisition of privilege, status, star-power, and wealth as well as powerful sexual urges that must be satisfied at any cost, no matter who or what might be harmed.  (Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan, Bay, Cutting Edge Ministries)

The Christian church is the only element in society with the moral authority and the availing remedy to counteract such manifest evil, but much of America's Christian church has been compromised, thereby rendered impotent.   Having compromised and conformed itself in one way or another to our paganized culture and dictates of the scientism/evolution crowd it is no longer salt and light, thus on the fast track to being spewed out.

Malachi Martin, author of "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," briefly outlines the spiritually desolate condition and resulting consequences of the compromising church:

"Among the general population of Catholics and Christians of other denominations, large numbers of people no longer learn even so basic a prayer as the Our Father.   In churches and parochial schools alike, the subject of Hell is avoided, as one Midwestern priest put it, in order not to put people on a 'guilt trip.'  The idea of sin is likewise avoided, according to the same source, in order not to do 'irreparable damage to what has been taught for the past fifteen years." (P. xvi)

Fearing rejection by our paganized culture and scientistic/evolutionary establishment, compromising churches refuse to contaminate what is termed the 'rational' and ‘scientific’ with the essentials of the faith necessary both for salvation and for the recognition of evil.  And without the grace that is born of true faith,

 "....Satan does what he does best---he ceases to exist in the eyes of those who do not see." (ibid)

Consequently, a favorable climate exists for the occurrence of demonic oppression and possession among the general population:

"Possession among the general population is so clear that it is attested to daily by competent social and psychological experts, who for the most part, appear to have no 'religious bias.'  Our cultural desolation---a kind of agony of aimlessness coupled with a dominant self-interest---is documented for us in the disintegration of our families.  In the break-up of our educational system.  In the disappearance of publicly accepted norms of decency in language, dress and behavior.  In the lives of our youth, everywhere deformed by stunning violence and sudden death, by teenage pregnancy; by drug and alcohol addiction; by disease; by suicide; by fear." And whether spoken or acted out without explanation, the dominant question of the deformed generation is, "What can you do for me?  What can my parents, my friends, my acquaintances, my enemies, my government, my country, do for me?" (pp. xiii-xiv)

Overshadowing secular-atheist America is a malevolent, living darkness sweeping virtually unseen in and through our society and compromising churches. 

Dr. Carl Raschke, Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver, concurs.  His chilling book “Painted Black” takes you through the minds of the deviant and murderous and then explores the growing evil sweeping through our hometowns.  He concludes that the decadence, pornography, heavy metal music, drug culture, fantasy role-playing games, cruelty, mass murders, criminality, the ‘new religions’ and upsurge in overt Satanism in American culture have certain social and spiritual ties that bind them together, revealing that they are part of a similar dark spiritual genus enabled by mystification of the most corrupt passions and secular values:

Satanism is but the spiritual Frankenstein created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God.” (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West — Part 6, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

America's spiritual Frankenstein bears a striking similarity to the pre-flood Frankenstein of Noah's time:

"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)

Sauron’s Kingdom of Darkness has slowly crept into and changed all things in the West and America.  Within its' living shadow barbarians situated within our government, media, entertainment, military, law enforcement, academia, and compromised church work their destructive magic while fell beasts and shapes of dread openly hunt the spiritually blind in the shadowy glades of the American Mirkwood.  

Please pray that our Lord will cleanse, revive and fortify His church and build up a force for spiritual and cultural resistance and renewal.   America desperately needs an army of courageous, selfless Hobbits: faithful male and female truth-warriors who will stand and fight the forces of darkness for both the soul of America and individual souls, who with  eyes wide-shut are blind to the infernal darkness closing in on them.

Magical Thinking and Malignant Narcissism: The Satanic Mindset of America's Ruling Class

During his commencement address at Harvard more than thirty years ago, former atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn offended the narcissistically inflated sensibilities of America’s up-and-coming “ruling class” aspirants when he warned that America was tilting towards evil.  This tilt toward evil was occurring because America’s ruling class and intelligentsia had rejected the Triune God and embraced instead evolutionary humanism, scientism, and the dream of building a socialist utopia (also known as social justice).  All together, these evil ideas are the demonic revolutionary politics of hatred, destruction and death.

According to Jamie Glazov,, the former Soviet Union possessed many imaginative mechanisms to deal with the problem of enemies of the people who obstructed the path to socialist utopia or social justice:

"One of those mechanisms was the practice of confining individuals who were thinking the wrong thoughts to insane asylums. Indeed, if you caused any trouble for the commissars, a good inoculation of neuroleptics (powerful drugs used to “quiet” the symptoms of schizophrenia), forcibly administered through a tube in the nose, could do wonders in bringing your politically incorrect behavior to a halt.”  (The Democrats’ Soviet Insane Asylum for Trump, Jamie Glazov, Frontpage Magazine, July 7, 2017)

Today’s progressive Democrats are also faithfully journeying on a Soviet-style odyssey:

" Horrified by Trump’s opposition to Obama’s “fundamental transformations,” they have found their own neuroleptics in the form of the 25th Amendment and a bill seeking to impeach the president for being mentally unsound. Indeed, Trump has to be mentally deranged and unfit for office, because what other reason could possibly explain his frightening disagreement with the Left’s un-American creed of identity politics -- race and gender uber alles? What other factor could possibly be at play in his embrace of individual freedom and responsibility -- and in his rejection of group privileges and racial/gender hierarchies that, as David Horowitz has noted, can only be manifested after America’s Constitution is null and void?” (ibid)

The left’s creed – identity politics –  rejects the idea of the one human race created by Elohim together with the fall, individual accountability and individual freedom, and establishes in their place group privileges based on the spurious idea of a genetically evolved racial/gender hierarchy  consisting of many distinct races and genders:

“These hierarchies are based on the malicious premise that whites, heterosexuals and males are oppressors and - in the words of the Democratic platform - America is a society governed by “systemic racism,” which needs to be fundamentally transformed.”  (The War Against Trump, David Horowitz, Frontpage Magazine, March 8, 2017)

Here's how retired Marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North describes the 'new' Socialist States of America, where according to the U.S. government North is not only a racist but an extremist 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."  (The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture, David Kupelian, pp. 14-15)

Identity politics was spawned by cultural determinism.  In its turn, cultural determinism was birthed by the Darwinian idea that man is an ape of evolution, therefore his identity is determined  for example, by his skin color or his sexual and/or erotic appetites.  This proposition rejects the concepts of the human soul/spirit, personhood, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience (paired with personal accountability and responsibility) because it emphatically denies the existence of the Creator God of the Bible.  (Cultural Marxism, L. Kimball, American Thinker, Feb., 2007)

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.”    Revolutionary politics reject these because these principles of liberty "are endowed by our Creator," who made man in His image.

Thirty years ago Solzhenitsyn clearly saw that the God-hating, socialist-utopia seeking faith of the ruling class and its apostate clergy had already produced a spiritual, moral, and intellectual sickness responsible for replacing traditional freedom for the good, true and right with destructive freedom that makes society defenseless against human decadence and criminality.  America, said Solzhenitsyn, is traveling the same highway to hell taken previously by the Russians.

 What gave his message its unassailable integrity, courage and force is that he spoke from the hellish crucible of the Soviet death camps. His message was:

”Look what happened when a godless regime takes over. Let our experience teach you not to continue on your current path of trying to live without God.” (Alexander Solzhenitsyn: A Prophet to the World, Aug. 2008, heedingthetimes.net)

Like Solzhenitsyn, Natan Sharansky also spoke from the hellish crucible of the godless Soviet Union where dissidents (heretics) were killed immediately.  

Toward the goal of absolute control over the wills and minds of the masses, evolutionary humanists wielded terroristic mind-control tactics such as propaganda of the lie (i.e., 2+2=5; God is dead; no one believes in Jesus Christ anymore), redefinition of words (more lies), revised history (more lies), brain altering drugs, conditioned atheism through the teaching of Darwinism (occult science magic), and terror-and-confusion inducing political correctness in the form of fear-inducing hate crime laws and speech codes (inverted pseudo-morality) to create a climate of confusion, paranoia and fear.  In this climate of fear and confusion, everyone became double thinkers who said the same thing (i.e., accused the innocent of bogus sins such as racism and homphobia), seemingly wanted and believed in the same things (i.e., global warming, open borders, homosexuality, and Sharia), and voted the same way.   But this was an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth, hence double-thinkers,

 "…..live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime demands loyalty right from childhood, many don't even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves." (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the "town square test." In this test, if you can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society.  However, if you are punished for expressing your views, such as the traditional view of marriage being for one man and one woman, then you live in a fear society.  In such societies there are always three types of population:

"True believers, who accept the ideology...dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts or disagreements about the official ideology but are afraid to express them publicly."  The level "of dissidence is always a function of how tough the regime is." (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

Measured by Sharanskys' town-square test we can see that America is already a three-tiered fear-based society consisting of an inner ring, an elitist ruling class (Ba'al and Gaia worshippers), a somewhat larger outer ring consisting of true-believers who willingly embrace and enforce lies in order to be accepted, privileged, enriched and empowered to persecute, hound and blackmail the much larger outer ring of miserable, self-hating double-thinkers.  Operating around the outer edges are the dissidents: truth-tellers most resistant to mind control.

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

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

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

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

Despite America’s  pervasive spiritual, moral, and intellectual pathology most Americans still retain faith in God (more or less) thus some sense of right and wrong, while the  Ruling Class are amoral malignant narcissists---hard-hearted, conscienceless  moral imbeciles who view themselves as gods. 

How did this sick, twisted god-man attitude replace the Founding generation’s belief that “all men are created equal” because the spiritual image bearers of the living, personal Holy Triune God?  Codevilla writes that by the 1820s,

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

As their numbers grew and their narcissism inflated,

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

Far from being the rational, scientifically enlightened, forward-thinking free-thinkers they imagine themselves, America’s Ruling Class are magic thinkers.   Respected Conservative Christian writer Frederick J. Hutchinson connects magical thinking with narcissism.  These two spiritual sicknesses go together like a dung-beetle on its’ pile.

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

Though the intellects of America’s ruling narcissists are intact, their conscience is depraved and their reason warped and perverted, thus useless for the pursuit of virtue.  They are spiritually dead, their wills turned toward evil and their materialized souls inward-and-downward turned away from God and His Light into the darkness and infinite smallness of ‘self’ and imaginations run wild.

This is why the Ruling Class advance deceptions like evolution, and climate change as 'facts' of science   And because they hate the “retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional” masses in the great flyover zones of America, especially the white, straight ones in the Bible Belt,  they sympathetically  support bogus theories such as Critical Theory, White Privilege, and Critical Race Theory and bogus rights such as choice, euthanasia, sodomy, same-sex marriage, perverse sex-education, universal healthcare, and Sharia because in reality all of these theories and ‘rights’ ultimately unleash forces of destruction and death upon the hated masses in one way or another.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Yogic Christ and the Terrifying Demonic Reality of Yoga

In “The Yoga of Jesus: Understanding the Hidden Teachings of the Gospels,” Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952) reveals the hidden yoga of the Gospels and confirms that Jesus, like the ancient sages and masters of the East, not only knew yoga but taught this ancient royal science of god-realization to his closest disciples.

Hailed as "the father of Yoga in the West," Paramahansa Yogananda is regarded as one of the great occult spiritual figures of our time. Born in northern India, he came to the United States in 1920, where for more than 30 years he taught the ancient science of Kriya Yoga meditation and the art of balanced spiritual living. Yogananda emphasized the underlying unity of the world’s great religions, including Christianity, and taught universally applicable methods for attaining direct personal experience of god within. He founded Self-Realization Fellowship to disseminate his writings and teachings worldwide and through his best-selling classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, and his numerous other books, he introduced millions throughout America and the world to the spiritual principles of yoga meditation and the universal occult truths underlying all world religions.

The Second Coming of Christ continues the legacy of the Sanatana Dharma—the perennial philosophy that proclaims the bliss of god as the overarching goal of all religious practice. This consummation is available to one and all, and the apparent exclusivity of the Yogic Christ’s claim, “No man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6), becomes a promise to all humanity, irrespective of creed. (1) 

Yogananda explains by quoting his own guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar:

"Jesus meant, never that he was the sole Son of God, but that no man can attain the unqualified Absolute, the transcendent Father beyond creation, until he has first manifested the “Son” or activating Christ Consciousness within creation. Jesus, who had achieved entire oneness with that Christ Consciousness, identified himself with it inasmuch as his own ego had long since been dissolved." (p. 1373)

In a further elaboration, Yogananda explains that the Christ Consciousness present in Jesus, and in all vibratory creation (universe) and phenomena,

"…is the noumenon, “truth,” the primary substance and essence of life of everything in creation. No human being who is a part of vibratory creation can take his consciousness to Cosmic Consciousness, “the Father”—which lies beyond vibratory creation and the immanent Christ Consciousness—without first experiencing the Christ-imbued Cosmic Vibration, or Holy Ghost, that manifests vibratory creation, then passing through the God-reflection of Christ Consciousness. In other words, to “come unto the Father” every human consciousness has to expand and attain realization of the Cosmic Vibration first, and then know Christ Consciousness, in order to reach Cosmic Consciousness."(P.1373–74)  

Today millions of Americans, Christian and non-Christian, practice forms of Eastern meditation and yoga to achieve oneness with the Christ Consciousness and be released from the bondage of opposites,

"...and to succeed in joining the dark and light sides of existence."  Dr. Peter Jones, Star Wars and the Ancient Religion

In "One or Two?" Dr. Jones, Director of truthXchange and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary California writes that a wide variety of occult spirituality is available in post-Christian America. There is something for everyone:

"A Course in Miracles, Alchemy, American Indian Quest, Ancient Mythology, Arkashic Record, Aryuvedic Medicine, Astrology, Bahai'i Unity, Buddhism, Buddhist/Christian Dialogue, Chakras, Channeling, Christian Monastic Mysticism, Crystals, Divination, Dream work, Druidism, Eastern Meditation, Eckankar (soul travel), Ecofeminism, Enneagram, EST, Feng Shui, Gnosticism (ancient and modern), Goddess worship, Hare Krishna, Hermeticism, Higher Self, Hinduism, Holism, Human Potential Movement, Hypnosis, I Ching, Iridology, Jungian Transpersonal Psychology, Kabbalah, Karma, Mandalas, Mantras, Mind-altering drugs, Parapsychology, Past Life Regressions, Reiki, Re-incarnation, Religious syncretism, Rolfing, Sacred Technologies, Santeria, Scientology, Shamanism, Sufism, T'ai Chi, Tantrism, Tarot Cards, Teilhardism, Therapeutic Touch, Tikkun, Transcendental Meditation, Ufology, Urantia Book, Visualization, Wicca, Yoga, Zen." (Pp. 40-41)

It is well documented that perversions, murder, demonic 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...the royal path to raising Kundalini Serpent Power.  Eliade 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)

Kundalini is the key term in Pandit Gopi Krishna’s  (1903-1984) theory of evolution (serpent power). Coming from ancient Sanskrit, it means, “coiled up” like a snake or spring, and implies latent serpent power or potential to expand. Gopi Krishna translates it as “lat­ent power-reservoir of energy” or “psychosomatic power center.” In the Tantras and the Shakti Shastras, Kundalini is invariably designated as a Goddess or as the Creative Power of the Absolute. In the present-day versions it is often referred to as a "Force," as "Serpent Power," or as "Energy.” (2) Thus Kundalini is the fundamental, 

“...bioenergy of life, stored primarily in the sex organs but present throughout the entire body. This potent psychic radiation is normally associated with the genitals for simple continuance of the species by providing a sex drive. This is what Freud called libido (although the Freudian conception is strictly psychological and lacks the energy tie-in to physics and biology which Gopi Krishna is pointing out).”  (Kundalini: Universal Ladder of Awakening, Atlantis Rising Magazine, Jan/Feb 2010)

The very popular Tantra Kundalini yoga is based on the occultic chakra system which teaches that universal evolutionary energy (Kundalini Shakti, the Supreme Power; serpent power) is coiled at the base of the spine and flows through human beings and all of creation, uniting everything above and everything below, thus acknowledging divinity in all things and all people. Through strenuous yoga and other occult techniques outlined in ancient and modern texts, Kundalini Shakti uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body. During so-called kundalini arousal, which may last for months or even years, protracted insanity and demonization must be endured. In the words of power yogi Muktananda:

"I was assailed by all sorts of perverse and defiling emotions...my breathing (became) disturbed...my abdomen would swell with air...my mind was sick with fear (my) thoughts became confused, meaningless. My limbs and body got hotter and hotter...Then I felt a searing pain...I wanted to run away, but my legs were locked tight in the lotus posture...Then...a moonlike sphere...came floating in (it) struck against my eyes and. passed inside me...I was terrified (but) still locked in the lotus posture (with) my head forced down and glued to the ground.... I started to make a sound like a camel, which alternated with the roaring of a tiger (I went) completely insane (and jumped and hopped) like a frog (while) my limbs (shook) violently. (Later) I learned that this was a Hatha Yoga process effected by the Goddess Kundalini in order for Her to move up through the spinal column into the sahasrana (upper psychic center.)" (Play of Consciousness, Swami Muktananda, pp. 75-81, 84-85, 88-89)

With continued practice, surrender, and preparation, one day the kundalini current (possessing demon) will reach full voltage and there will no longer be anyone home but an unholy spirit residing in an empty shell of a body:

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey.... of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity. The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)." Finally it happened – explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated. Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels." "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..." (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45)

Yoga is an occult technique that originated in the Orient. Common denominators of Eastern mysticism, Wicca, contemporary Luciferian Theosophy, and occult spiritual New Age are spiritistic or animistic backgrounds resulting in the development of psychic powers and contact with demons, or familiar spirits.  

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) was a noted German theologian, minister and evangelist who pastored, counseled, and delivered thousands of people in bondage to the occult. In his book, "Occult ABC: Exposing Occult Practices and Ideologies," he wrote that missionaries and Christian researchers who have lived:

 “.... in Asia for many years claim that between 95 and 98 percent of the nonChristian population have psychic powers (which) vary considerably in strength, depending on the extent to which the person has been involved with the occult practices of Asiatic religions." (p. 9)

Behind magic, mysticism and the occult, the yoga system of initiation is present. The first stage of yoga has the aim of helping the student to "gain control of his consciousness and his body," through mental and physical exercises.  The second stage produces control of the unconscious mind while the third combines magic and yoga to produce power over nature. At the fourth stage of initiation, the yogi gains mastery of the dark arts and all the powers of a supernatural order, which are indispensable for occult activities. (Koch, p. 260)

Former guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj, now a committed follower of the Way of Jesus Christ, describes his former occult rituals and their terrifying consequences:

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

Dr. Koch strongly advises Christians to steer clear of yoga:

"There are many Christians who believe that it is possible to participate in (the) first stage of yoga without harm. It is merely a matter of relaxation exercises (they say). If only this were true! Counseling experience tells otherwise. This technique of relaxation and these "emptying exercises" (of the mind) lead to the inflowing of another spirit---other spirits. The students of yoga do not notice it." (p. 257-258)

Yoga: Highly Refined Royal Science of Babylon

Neo-paganism, witchcraft, New Age spirituality, 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, light from dark) and oppositions such as 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 occult reality via meditation, yoga, 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)

Yoga does not liberate…it enslaves and binds. It does not enlighten but rather causes confusion and darkness. It does not prepare the way for Jesus Christ but rather makes people immune to redemption through Him, for it does not open the door for the Holy Spirit but for unholy spirits.

In post-Christian America, occult spirituality is all the rage, thus it comes as no surprise that yoga courses are conducted in churches and schools all over southern California, New York, and elsewhere. Course descriptions read:

"Age and developmentally appropriate yoga poses, breathing exercises, chanting, meditation, and relaxation techniques offer a child-friendly relationship to the physical and philosophical traditions of yoga." (The Emperor's New Yoga Pants, Mary Eady, truthexchange, Dec. 1, 2011) 

The almost 2000 year old Book of Revelation summarized and distilled over 1500 years of biblical prophecy in its far-reaching vision of the final world order, a serpent-powered global world order involving religious, economic, political, and military forces under an occult spiritual regime of absolute oppression and delusion known as Mystery Babylon.

Under the guise of science, evolution, and technology, the already emerging world order offers itself to us as Hermetic wisdom teachings whose origins are ancient Babylonia, Egypt, and according to New Age historians, pre-flood Atlantis.  As it was in the days of Noah, Babylonians, Egyptians, and today’s New Age are earmarked by their embrace of the Great Lie, monism, sorcery, meditation, initiations (i.e., four stages of yoga), secret words (mantras), psychic powers, hedonism and androgyny.

The Holy Triune God does not deny the reality of psychic powers but we learn that the true source of occult serpent powers is Satan. Yahweh abhorred these practices and warned His people against them in Deuteronomy 18:10-12, Leviticus 19:31, and Isaiah 8:19.

The mystery religion of Babylon is the mother of all post-flood mystery religions, initiations (stages of yoga) and occult evolutionary science. It promises the keys to psychic powers, immortality, and divinity. Over the centuries, said Tal Brooke, it has fermented "into a refined wine---the Chateau vin du Rothschild of mystical wines.” Revelation predicts that at some point the whole world becomes drunk on the wine of Babylon, its serpent-empowered celebrants convinced of their own divinity (Rev. 16:17-21; Rev. 17: 1-6).

Rise of the Serpent-Powered ‘Scientific Occult Theocratic State’ and its Infernal Spirituality

There is no God and no soul.  Hence, there are no needs for the props of traditional religion.  With dogma and creed excluded, then immutable (unchangeable) truth is also dead and buried.  There is no room for fixed, natural law or permanent moral absolutes.” (John Dewey, The Unseen Hand, A. Ralph Epperson, p. 298)

John Dewey, co-author of the 1933 Humanist Manifesto and father of progressive education was a leading figure in the ‘dumbing down' of American schools and the transition of American society away from its founding Biblical heritage in favor of Humanism.  

The three main planks of Humanism are Evolution, Socialism (or Communism), and Atheism:

We, of course, say that we do not believe in God (and) eternal morality. That is moral that serves the destruction of the old society.  Everything is moral which is necessary for the annihilation of the old exploiting social order and for uniting the proletariat.”  (Ibid, The Unseen Hand, p. 378-379)

Dewey’s destructive anti-Christian directive has been fulfilled.  America's contemporary public schools have eliminated all references to Elohim, the Holy Trinity Who created the heavens and earth ex nihilo (Gen. 1:1) and created mankind in ‘Our own image, according to Our likeness.’  (Gen. 1:26).  Even the mention of our Savior Jesus Christ, the second person of the Holy Trinity, together with the Bible, Christian clubs and Christian literature are not welcome:

"Christmas Carols are now forbidden in the schools because they mention God and Jesus.  However, Colorado public schools have just OK'd the distribution of Satanic books and pamphlets on school campuses.  It is telling to note that it is the atheists who are working as Satan's servants who have been pressing this issue."  (Satanic Books Now OK for Public Schools, Rev. Austin Miles, American Prophet, Apr. 5, 2016)

A confluence of events pointing to Dewey and the devil's many other humanist change-agents behind the apocalyptic atmosphere engulfing the Western civilized nations and the rest of the world are meticulously detailed by Ted Flynn in his book, "Hope of the Wicked: the Master Plan to Rule the World."  With over 500 pages, 1,200 footnotes and several thousand quotes, it uses the words of prime ministers, secretaries of treasury, secretaries of state, philanthropists and global business leaders to expose their totalitarian NWO vision and their plans to bring it about as well as the convergence, on a global basis, of multinational corporations, foundations and the political and sociological instruments that would form a one-world government designed to bring about a New World Order, a Scientific Occult Theocratic State.

"To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family tradition, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.”  "For many generations we have bowed our necks to the yoke of the conviction of sin. We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents.... There is something to be said... for gently putting aside the mistaken old ways of our elders if that is possible. If it cannot be done gently, it may have to be done roughly or even violently.”  (“The Re-Establishment of Peacetime Society,” Feb. 1946, Brock Chisholm, first head of the World Health Organization) 

It was in 1962 that an international occult 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 West’s existing Biblically grounded order be stealthily undermined and broken-down into chaos on the assumption that out of chaos a new order would emerge. 

The most important step involved destroying belief in the Holy Triune God, orthodox Christianity and faithful Judaism. Toward this goal a Temple of Understanding was erected in Washington D.C. where ‘elite’ 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 attaché of the United Arab Republic, many prominent ‘Christian’ 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' deity worshipped throughout the world under many different names such as Ba'al, Tammuz, Osiris, Zeus, Quetzalcoatl and Apollyon.

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 Energy Field, the singularity (symbolized by a serpent biting its tail) from which emanate evolving creative energies extending into the psyche of mankind:

"Hope and faith in The Most Radiant One (Lucifer, the divine energy field) will be restored.... In the years to come each soul on Terra will be touched by this energy...The choices are simple – one selects either peace, harmony, love, and Light, or fear and darkness. There is no middle compromise…Those who journey into the Light will move with us ... Those who choose to stay in the lower vibrations will be provided for accordingly also. The Earth will be cleansed in the next decade, for the purification must be complete....”  (Spiritual Politics, Corinne McLaughlin, a Theosophist and task-force coordinator for President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development, p 240)

Over and across W. Europe, Australia, Canada and America, an unfolding stealth revolution of long duration is ruthlessly conducted by the world’s new ‘progressive masters’ (evolutionary humanists) for the purpose of abolishing and annihilating the Christian foundations of the Western civilized world to make way for a dehumanizing occult pantheist Theocratic Order and infernal spiritualism and vice of every kind.  Wholesale changes are forced upon us more quickly now than ever. 

Sweden for example, is now on the brink of civil war and its national police chief has issued a desperate plea for help.  (Sweden on the Brink of Civil War, National Police Chief: “Help Us, Help Us!”  Nicholas Sennels, Jihad Watch, June 25, 2017)

Yet even as savage Muslim barbarians conduct jihad against the people, Sweden's nihilistic feminist 'elite' rulers see themselves as detached god-like observers virtue signaling to their international elite cohort while their own stupefied, emasculated, debauched citizens are crushed, raped, and murdered by a vicious proletariat--- a replacement population of barbarians. But then, the making of a perfect omelet (New Order) necessitates the breaking of many eggs (human lives).

The Apocalyptic Revolution

"A silent, unavoidable revolution is taking place in society, a revolution that cares as little about the human lives it destroys as an earthquake cares about the houses it ravages. Classes and races...too weak to dominate the new conditions of existence will be defeated." (Karl Marx, "Marx & Satan," Richard Wurmbrand, p. 42)

The occult Progressive Revolution is war against the supernatural Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is therefore a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in the serpent (devil), the spirit of lies, hate, murder, satanic idolatry, apostasy, moral relativism, occultism, spiritism, monism and evolution---the United Nation’s god of forces (Dan. 11:38, KJ), the divine creative energy symbolized by the serpent and worshipped by the nations of the world from antiquity.  (The Worship of Creative Energy as Symbolized by the Serpent, Charles Edward Herring, p. 11)

The nature of the Revolution is the antithesis of authentic Christian faith. Whereas Christian faith is joy, patience, charity, truth, humbleness, perseverance, submission in all things to the Will of God and blessed eternal life in Paradise (Eden restored), the Satanic counterfeit seethes with hatred, rebelliousness, burning envy, ressentiment, malignant narcissism, covetousness, ingratitude, mockery, doubts, lies, revulsion, blasphemy, thoughts of murder and eternal life in Hell.  Thus the sentiment of the Revolution is satanic pride which,

"...spurns subjection to any master whatever, whether of divine or human origin." (Bakunin, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 63)

Fueled by satanic pride, a will turned toward evil and dissatisfaction with Elohim, self, the world, and society, it devotes its' infernal energy toward "change," or as Karl Marx put it, toward the wholesale destruction of the Christian-based Old Order and the establishment of a religiously pagan, totalitarian world order because:

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

Infernal New Age World Spirituality

“You will be hated…for My name’s sake.” Matthew 24:9

If the Earth Summiteers have their way, Johnny and Suzie will not be able to pledge allegiance to "one nation, under God," but they will be able to pledge to "One World, under Gaia" — that is, Mother Earth. They will not be allowed to have the Ten Commandments or the Holy Bible in class, but could soon be bowing before the pagan "Ark of Hope," reading the "sacred" Temenos Books, and reverently intoning the text of the new UN Earth Charter.” (The New World Religion, William F. Jasper, The New American, Sept. 23, 2002)

The Revolution, of which the U.N., Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Publishing), the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding and Baca Grande (Colorado based New Age Vatican City) are integral components, intends the complete overturning of the Christian conception of man as person because created in the image of the One God in three Persons together with the Biblical moral and spiritual ethics enjoyed by Western and American civilization for over a thousand years. As part of this goal, the Bible, beginning with the Genesis account, must be reinterpreted in terms of evolutionary scientism, man must be fundamentally remade by eradication of every vestige of Imago Dei from his inner being, and Christian leadership reduced to a non-factor. Flynn writes that this has largely been accomplished,

"...by placing their own leaders in place where they exert tremendous influence. Much of this program of revolution was confirmed by Franklin D. Roosevelt in his book, 'Our Way' (which) summed up, the spiritual and immoral goals of world revolution (and how they) are being achieved, and nowhere more so than in the United States." (Flynn, p. 361)

Other primary goals of revolutionaries are:

a. Dissolution of legal government;

b. Destruction of sovereignty, private property and patriotism;

c. Demoralizing, debauching, stupefying, and bringing the people of the United States into penury via graduated income taxes, property taxes, inheritance taxes, sales taxes, a massive welfare state and socialized healthcare and slavery via liberated sin nature and legalized pornography:

"A growing number of young men are convinced that their sexual responses have been sabotaged because their brains were virtually marinated in porn when they were adolescents. Their generation has consumed explicit content in quantities and varieties never before possible, on devices designed to deliver content swiftly and privately, all at an age when their brains were more plastic—more prone to permanent change—than in later life. These young men feel like unwitting guinea pigs in a largely unmonitored decade-long experiment in sexual conditioning.... The average age that a young man first encounters pornography is 11-13 years old. That means that countless young men have spent the better part of the last decade with access to moving porn. For many of them, everything they have learned about sex has come from pornography. Their sexual preferences have been shaped by this content." (Denny Burk, "The Porn Catastrophe," Rod Dreher, The American Conservative, Apr. 5, 2016) 

d. Abolition of our God-given right to life via reproductive rights (choice) and euthanasia and of private property via onerous building codes, zoning regulations, land-use restrictions, re-wilding schemes and taxing private property out of existence by targeting inheritance with bigger and bigger taxes;

e. Destruction of the traditional monogamous family unit via divorce, same-sex marriage, co-habitation, alternative lifestyles, abortion, pornography, hedonism, legalized sodomy, lesbianism, transgender and gender fluidity;

Before the top-down spiritually pagan world order dominated by an occult 'elite' can come into existence, there must be a politically correct philosophy of 'new' thought and a philosophy of pantheist-based natural religion and natural science to usher in the coming political, social, legal and educational aspects of the new order since New Age Spirituality is an evolutionary pantheist, politically communist, ecologically 'sustainable,' sexually androgynous way of living.

In her two books on the coming New World Order, 'The Hidden Rainbow,' and 'A Planned Deception,' Constance Cumbey writes that these goals have largely been accomplished:

"The New Age Movement is a religion complete with its own Bibles, prayers and mantras, Vatican City/Jerusalem equivalents, priests and gurus, born again experiences (they call it 'rebirthing'), spiritual laws and commandments, psychics and prophets and nearly every other indicia of a religion." (Flynn, p. 361)

According to Cumbey, the Plan for the new order includes the installation of a New Age totalitarian government and new world religion under Maitreya---the World Teacher, the Maitreya Bud­dha, the Messiah, the main Mahdi, and Christ.  As well, there are plans to implement a universal identification system, universal 'cashless' credit system, universal tax, universal draft, and a world food and water authority that will control all of the world's food and water supplies. To ensure that all people worship the New Age messiah, authentic Christianity and faithful Judaism will be completely stamped out along with all faithful Christians and Jews.

“The whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.”  1 John 5:19

"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:11-12

Toward this end, the ‘divine serpent’ energizing and directing the Revolution intends to possess the Christian faith and refashion it completely. In furtherance of his goal, the 'divine serpent' has audaciously declared that the supernatural Holy Trinity has been isolated in His transcendence and is therefore dead, so though the notion of God is retained, the devil proposes a functionless god that perhaps serves to ignite the Big Bang and set evolution in motion.

According to the serpent, the Revolution is now moving with great force and speed across America nearly unopposed and will not stop until every vestige of faith in Elohim has been obliterated in every heart.

Every man, woman, and child is to experience a Satanic Initiation in the words of New Age insider David Spangler – to a 'new' pantheist spirituality dressed in Christian symbols and terminology, an anti-gospel preached by anti-saints from the void who will assure men of their salvation though they will find only the leering face of the devil.

 “The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.” (Proverbs 16:4)  Therefore, “Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.”  (Psalm 2: 1-7, 12)  For, “…in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.  For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  (Romans 8:31)

 

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.
