Gnosis: The Main Expression of Paganized Christianity in the New Age

In the essay, "The Paganization of Biblical Studies," Dr. Peter Jones, Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary in Escondido, Calif., identifies liberalism and/or progressivism as a form of neo-Gnostic paganism, or mystical pantheism.   

Though Gnosticism emerged in ancient Babylon during the Jewish exile and eventually developed a 'Christian' variant, neo-Gnostic 'Christianity' first developed in 19th century Germany.  Its first real manifestation was at the University in Tubingen where an apostate Christian theologian named Ferdinand Baur (1792-1860) had formed a school of theology which would raise questions about the Christian faith, a tactic designed to undermine its status as the fount of truth and moral law through destructive criticism.  Among areas which came under attack were the person of Jesus Christ, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the fall and nature of sin, the authority of the Bible, the way of spiritual salvation, apostolic tradition and Church doctrine.

By far the most heretical and destructive incursion into divine truth was the neo-Gnostic assertion of the immanence of God at the expense of His transcendence (separateness from His creation) so that the personal Creator becomes an impersonal expression of an evolving cosmic process. 

Neo-Gnostic 'Christianity' has absorbed and radically reinvented and inverted the Bible,  thus Peter Jones describes the essence of liberalism throughout its history as the importation,

"...into the church via the use of Christian terminology...the various historic expressions of pagan notions, in particular, the denial of God's transcendence.   In this sense, the first "liberals" were the Gnostics.  Certainly a form of Gnosticism, sometimes called proto-Gnosticism is behind the denial of the incarnation in the Johannine epistles, and of the resurrection in the early and later Paulines.   Interestingly, the Liberals of the modern period have had a great admiration for the proto-Gnostics, in particular, Marcion.  In A.D. 150, Marcion, a theologian from Pontus in Asia Minor, was excommunicated from the Church in Rome for heretical teaching.  He dismissed God the Creator, the Old Testament, the Mosaic law, and three of the gospels. From the few epistles of Paul that he accepted, he expunged Old Testament quotations and claimed to worship the "alien god" behind the God of Scripture." (Dr. Peter Jones, 2007, truthxchange.com) 

Dave Doveton, Canon theologian and Director of the Training Centre for Ministries and Community in the Anglican Diocese of Mauritius holds that the Gnostic temptation is at the root of every Christian error and heresy:

"In gnosis everything is the intellectual self-production of the individual."  Gnosis is the pretension of a self-redemption of man "who does not need the intervention of the Other of (One) on High, that is the intervention of God." (The Episcopal Church: the Way of Baalam, Dave Doveton...False Teachers and the re-appearance of ancient Gnostic beliefs, reviewed by David W. Virtue, virtueonline.org, March 28, 2011)

In "The Pagan Temptation," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), writes that the gnostic pagan temptation is never very far from a civilization organized by the Christian religion because  what paganism and the occult promise is self-created, deified humanity whose soul is "no longer touched by God." (The Pagan Temptation, p. 3)

The atheist claims there is no living God "up above" (in the third heaven) and that matter or energy in motion is all there is.  This view, however, has already been eclipsed by the thinking of neo-Gnostic mystical pantheists such as Hartford Seminary professor of liturgy worship and spirituality, Miriam Therese Winter.  Winter teaches:

 "Our Mother who is within us we celebrate your many names. Your wisdom come. Your will be done, unfolding from the depths within us..."  (ibid, Dave Doveton, virtueonline.org)

Thomas Molnar writes that the idea that "Our Mother who is within us" or perhaps a "divine spark" within us or maybe "world spirit," "One Spirit," "spirit of the age," "Spirit" "Christ consciousness," "deepest self," "Universal Mind," or "divine essence" is the spontaneous bent, 

"...of the archaic mind which predominated in most parts of the world and which threatens to prevail once more in our time the temptation. to identify God and self, to recognize in the soul a divine substance, indeed the seat of divinity." ("The Gnostic Tradition and Renaissance Occultism," Thomas Molnar, The Journal of Christian Reconstruction, Vol.1, No.2, 112, 1974)

Now that the supernatural Triune God "up above" is dead in the hearts of millions of Westerners, man's mandate in the gnostic-pagan process of conscious evolution depends upon the initiative of man, said the mystical pantheist heretic Teilhard de Chardin.  Christians should not fear the process of evolution because it only brings them inexorably into "oneness" or "convergence" with the impersonal, omni-gendered divine substance, Monad, Spirit or Universal Mind:

"Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is nothing but a magnificent means of feeling more at one with God...In a spiritually converging world, the "Christic" energy acquires an urgency and intensity of another order altogether." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 590)

Dave Doveton says the Gnostic pagan tendency places gnosis and/or inner knowing---intellectual pride, personal feelings and mystical experience---above clear scriptural teaching, and this tendency is behind the decisions of the Episcopal Church  to permit the 'blessing' of same sex unions.    In other words, said Doveton, gnosis can overturn the,

"....pervasive, absolute and strong biblical prohibition of same-gender sexual relations which has been interpreted as such and upheld by the church for two millennia..." (ibid, virtueonline.org

The Gnostic paganization of Biblical studies can be summarized thusly:

1. The Gnostic doctrine of the migration and/or evolutionary progress of the soul results in spiritual elitism

2. Gnostic influence reduces faith to inner knowing and feelings

3. The Gnostic idea of salvation is similar to forms of Hinduism and Buddhism calling for absorption into the One Substance

4. Gnostics believe that man's problem is not sin but ignorance  

5. For the Gnostic, the problem is not 'original sin' but the captivity of divine spirit in the material body

6. For Katherine Jefferts Schori, 26th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States, Jesus, or Teilhard's 'Christus energy," is not the Incarnate Word but the route to the impersonal God for Christians.

7. Since evolution implies continuous change, becoming, and/or progress, Gnostic pagans claim that there is nothing immutable about the authority of Holy Scripture.   Holy Scripture and by extension the traditional church are subject to change because everything is infused with impersonal divine spirit in continuous process of change, therefore Holy Scripture, truth, moral law and tradition live and evolve and  must in fact be changed as their purpose is to express the inner knowing and feelings of each new generation.  

8. Because feelings and inner knowing are 'divine' Gnosticism is bound up with victimhood.  This enables anyone with hurt feelings or gnosis to both claim the high moral ground and invent various 'identities' which demand not only special privileges (i.e., 'gay' marriage) and protection (i.e., safe spaces, hate crime laws, speech codes) but immunity from critique. 

9.Gnostics regard "consciousness" - individual (state of mind) and collective social as of primary importance.   This mystical pantheist notion is expressed repeatedly in Gnostic pagan writings  in terms such as "immanence", "consciousness raising," the "world spirit", "the One Spirit," "the spirit of the age," "the Spirit" "oneness" "Christ consciousness" "we are the world" "collective consciousness" and other like terms.  Since this "spirit" is always evolving and changing with the dominant ideas of the age not only must religion change but behavior, no matter how criminal, decadent, rebellious, and obscene is of secondary importance. 

10. For many churchmen in the Episcopal Church sin is not a breach of right behavior but rather, "sin lies not in the specific actions but in the context and intention with which it is performed and received."  

When Atlanta pastor Louie Giglio was effectively disinvited from delivering an inaugural prayer at President Obama's second inauguration and was replaced by 'gay affirming' Rev. Dr. Luis Leon, Dr. Albert Mohler noted that America has begun a new chapter in its downward spiraling moral revolution.  

From now on said Mohler,  if you believe in and teach God's Revelation and Christian truth you will be required to offer public repentance and evidence of having 'evolved' on the issue in question:

"This is what is now openly demanded of Christians today. If you want to avoid being thrown off the program, you had better learn to evolve fast, and repent in public." (The Giglio Imbroglio---the Public Inauguration of a New Moral McCarthyism, Albert Mohler, Jan. 10, 2013, AlbertMohler.com)  

Dr. Peter Jones warns that we are in the presence of a powerful pagan/Gnostic theological agenda, claiming to be spanking new, objective, scientific, and Christian but is in fact both Godless and as old as the hills:

"It is my belief that this trend in biblical studies is part of the setting in place of a pagan reconstruction of human culture for the planetary era.  Gnosis in one form or another is expected to become the main expression of secular religion in the new millennium. In order to equip the Church for this new age, the scientific study of Gnosticism is vital." (The Paganization of Biblical Studies, Peter Jones)

The Frankfurt School, Cultural Marxism and Racial Reconciliation Services: the Connections

Rev. Sam Murrell is a black Anglican priest in the Anglican Church in North America who will no longer participate in racial reconciliation services.   As a teacher of worldview Rev. Murrell has identified the myths, lies, and anti-Christ presuppositions operating at the foundation of the concept of racial reconciliation services:

“Words Matter. As people of the Word, language is important and I believe it is time the Church gave up the common use of the word ‘race’ and all of its cognates. They only help to perpetuate an untruth about the nature of mankind. In the anthropology of Scripture, race is an alien concept. Scripture does not speak of ‘the races’ as subsets of humanity, but it does speak of ‘tongues (which can be translated as religions), tribes and nation’. As long as the Church concedes to the terminology of a Darwinian worldview we will never get closer to modeling the oneness of the Body of Christ for the world that is spoken of in Scripture. The Church must not capitulate to the secular world on this matter and put words into our mouths, and in doing so perpetuate a false reality. God’s Word has this right; there is one ‘race’ and many scattered tongues, tribes and nations. Many anthropologists agree that the 19th-century idea of many ‘races’ is not a biological reality but rather a myth. My point here is not to argue the science but to emphasize worldview.” (Why I No Longer Participate in Racial Reconciliation Services, Rev Sam Murrell, kuyperian.com, Jan. 20, 2018)

Rev. Murrell is absolutely correct.  Worldview and worldview presuppositions (foundations) absolutely matter! Racial reconciliation is a Darwinian and sociopolitical construct of socialistic Progressive Leftism and its religiously pagan counterpart, Liberal and/or Progressive Christianity and is therefore a lie from Hell..

At the level of presupposition, Progressive Leftism and Progressive Christianity otherwise known as Cultural Marxism, are revamped and revised forms of ancient pagan evolutionary pagan materialism (Acts 17: 18-19) syncretized with heretical Protestantism, making Progressive Christianity not Christian at all but rather neo-pagan and sociopolitical theology of  Godless humanism passing itself off as Christian.  It is in fact sexually perverse idolatrous nature worship grounded in an esoteric evolutionary cosmology.

 Neo-pagan materialism belongs to the family of Naturalism, which refers to the view that nature is the Ultimate Substance (i.e.,evolving energy field or star stuff according to Carl Sagan) out of which the universe and all life evolved, thus "all is one."   C. S. Lewis describes naturalism as a box with its top sealed tightly closed in order to keep out the Triune God and the supernatural realm.  The ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Ionians, and Aztecs were, for example, naturalists.  In this view there is but one realm (the material or natural) as opposed to Christianity's creation model with its two interacting realms: natural (the seen) and supernatural (the unseen).

 Because “all is one,” or in “solidarity,” the linchpin of Progressive Christianity, as with Progressive Leftism, is cultural determinism, the parent of identity politics and group solidarity.  In its turn, cultural determinism was birthed by the Darwinian idea that man is nothing but a product of creative evolutionary energies.  Thus man is a bio machine or soulless hominid whose  identity is genetically determined for example, by his skin color or his sexual and/or erotic preferences.  This proposition rejects the concepts of the human spirit/soul (imago Dei), personhood, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience (paired with personal accountability and responsibility) because it emphatically denies the existence of the supernatural Triune God.  

The contemporary Progressive Left and its religiously pagan counterpart hold that non-socialist societies are composed largely of genetically racist, homophobic, bigoted, mentally ill oppressors and their oppressed victims:

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

Progressive Christianity is a 'death of God' theology that rejects the supernatural Triune God, hates the Gospel, reduces Jesus Christ to mere mortal, and is more about being properly positioned and seen as against manufactured evils,

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

The Connections

The carefully concealed connections between Progressive Christianity, Progressive Leftism, Cultural Marxism, the Frankfurt School's Theodor Adorno and racial reconciliation services is hatred of the Triune God and His Christ and Western and American civilization because it is grounded in Christianity. 

Karl Marx makes very clear his burning hatred of the Christian God in his poem "The Pale Maiden" where he declares war upon  God and the world created by Him.   Marx also admits the existence of his soul, heaven and hell: 

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

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

In anticipation of the revolutionary storm that would baptize the world in an inferno of red terror, wholesale destruction and rivers of blood leading to its rebirth as the promised land of social justice and proletarian equality-Frederich Engels wrote, (1)

"All the...large and small nationalities are destined to perish...in the revolutionary world storm... (A general war will) wipe out all...nations, down to their very names.  The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only reactionary classes...but...reactionary peoples."  ("The Magyar Struggle," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, Jan. 13, 1849)

But by the end of WWI, socialists realized that something was amiss, for the world's proletariat had not heeded Marx's call to rise up in bloody opposition to evil capitalism and embrace communism instead.  

Wondering what had gone wrong two Marxist theorists-Antonio Gramsci of Italy and Georg Lukacs of Hungary-concluded that the Christianized West was the obstacle standing in the way of a Godless communist new world order.  The West would have to be de-Christianized first.

Gramsci posited that because Christianity had been dominant in the West for over 2000 years, not only was it fused with Western civilization, but it had corrupted the workers class.  The West would have to be stealthily de-Christianized, undermined, demoralized and corrupted by Marxist operatives through a "long march through the culture."  Additionally, a new proletariat must be created.  In his "Prison Notebooks," he suggested that the new proletariat be comprised of criminals and bitter, resentful women and racial minorities.

The new battleground, reasoned Gramsci, would be the culture. Starting with the traditional family it would completely engulf and corrupt churches, seminaries, schools, media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, science, and history.  All of these institutions must be radically transformed and the social and cultural order gradually turned upside-down with the new proletariat placed in power at the top.

In 1923, the Frankfurt School--a Marxist think-tank--was founded in Weimar Germany.  Among its founders were Georg Lukacs, Herbert Marcuse, and Theodor Adorno.  The school was a multidisciplinary effort which included sociologists, sexologists, and psychologists. 

The primary goal of the Frankfurt School was to translate Marxism from economic terms into cultural terms. It would provide the ideas on which to base a new political theory of revolution against traditional culture and on identifying and demonizing 'new' victimizers as well as the new 'oppressed' groups. Smashing religion, morals, the church, and family, it would also build a constituency among academics who could build careers studying and writing about the new 'victimizers,' (traditional Americans) and their oppressed victims. 

Toward this end, Marcuse-who favored polymorphous perversion-expanded the ranks of Gramsci's new proletariat by including homosexuals, lesbians, and transsexuals.  Into this was spliced Lukacs obscenely perverse sex education and cultural terrorism tactics.  Gramsci's ‘long march' was added to the mix, and then all of this was wedded to Freudian psychoanalysis and psychological conditioning techniques. The end product was Cultural Marxism, now known in the West as multiculturalism.

Additional intellectual firepower was required: a diabolical theory to pathologize who and what was to be destroyed. In 1950, the Frankfurt School augmented Cultural Marxism with Theodor Adorno's idea of the ‘authoritarian personality.'  This concept is premised on the notion that Christianity, morality, capitalism, and the traditional family create a character prone to racism and fascism.  Thus anyone---but especially white Christian conservatives-- who upholds America's traditional moral values and institutions is a priori guilty of both racism and fascism.  Children raised by traditional values parents, we are told to believe, will almost certainly become racists and fascists.  By extension, if fascism and racism are endemic to America's traditional culture upheld by white Christian conservatives and Americas middle class, then everyone raised in the traditions of the Christian God, family, Biblical morality, patriotism, gun ownership, private property, and free markets is in need of psychological help.

The pernicious influence of Adorno's ‘authoritarian personality' idea can be clearly seen in some of the research that gets public money.

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

In the ever-evolving sophistry of malicious American Progressives, racism exists in the DNA of white traditionalists:

"Our pro-cross dressing President apparently doesn’t think people have DNA that makes them male or female. But he has just told an interviewer that white people and others have DNA that makes them racist and that American institutions are racist, too. These claims are described by our media as “bold” rather than bizarre racial slurs....It’s highly ironic that Obama would lecture others about racism, since he was admittedly “schooled” in anti-white racism by communist atheist Frank Marshall Davis. One Davis poem, “Christ is a Dixie Nigger,” dismissed Jesus Christ as “another New White Hope.”  (Obama Talks DNA Based Racism on Comedy Show, Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy in Media, June 22, 2015)

Theodor Adorno crafted his authoritarian personality idea so as to pathologize America's traditionalists--the socially conservative, mainly white Christian population.  After years of terroristic psychological bullying to beat down and bring white people into submissive acceptance of their a priori guilt, the time was ripe to infiltrate the orthodox Christian church with a subset of Adorno's idea: racial reconciliation services where the premise,

"... of the worship service is that Whites are guilty because they are White. This is evident in the fact that the white people present at such events are expected, even pressured, to confess the sin of racism even if they cannot recall any specific instances of racist action that they have perpetrated. The assumption is that because you are white then you must have knowingly, or unknowingly, caused offense towards Blacks (and maybe other ethnic minorities too). An example of this guilt-by-association is that, although you may be unable to find any instance of slave ownership in your genealogy, you are held accountable for the history of slavery in the United States of America. The black person stands as representative of the innocent victim of so-called racism and thus serves a priestly role for the white confessor who is guilty because of a lack of melanin in the epidermis. The white person’s pigmentation carries with it a privilege, and that is enough to require repentance."  Rev. Sam Murrell

As Rev. Murrell noted, racial reconciliation services are from Satan and have no place in the orthodox Christian church.  Yet recently, the PCA {Presbyterian Church of America) demonstrated a woeful lack of discernment with the release of a fairly in-depth report on racial reconciliation:  http://www.pcaac.org/racial-and-ethnic-reconciliation-study-committee-report/

As faithful orthodox Christians we must own our personal sins and confess them to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but stand against the stealthy snares set for us by sinister, spiteful God-haters.  Furthermore, we must not allow God-haters to abominate the Genesis account with their evolutionary theories or to persuade us accept a false-burden of guilt and the need to submit to racial reconciliation.  Do not listen to unrepentant Godless Pied Pipers on the fast track to Hell.

1. Cultural Marxism, Linda Kimball, American Thinker, Feb. 15, 2007

 

THE LEFT KILLS AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT TWICE: The Left is not fighting racism, sexism, homophobia, income inequality or war. It is fighting us.

The cult of the left worships history as the tea leaves forecasting an inevitable future. It is convinced that if it can rewrite history, it will write the future. It does this, as everything else, through lies, special pleading, hysterical outrage, self-righteous threats and finally the inevitable violence.

“No one would wish to hurt me,” President McKinley had said. Czolgosz, Obama and the Arcata City Council disagree. They want to hurt him. And all the rest of us. 

Judgement and Wrath: The Biblical Explanation for Madness and Evil

The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche predicted that the death of the Christian God would unleash madness that over time would eventually infiltrate every area of Western and American life.   That time is now.

 In 2013, AP award winning columnist Richard Larsen described American culture as warped and twisted with few core values and a perverted sense of propriety. (Our Culture Of Deranged Values, Larsen, Western Journalism, July 2, 2013 )

From an almost boundless menu of madness, Larsen selects a few:  

1. You can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally.

2. School children have to get parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion or take a morning after pill.

3. We have politicians who want to ban law-abiding citizens from owning guns but give fighter jets to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and want to give weapons to the resistance in Syria that beheads opponents and eats their hearts.

4.  A seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is cute, but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.

5. You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself luxuries, while your neighbor buys iPhones, TV’s, and new cars; and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage.

6. School children are allowed to spew the most vulgar words and expressions, but face suspension if they talk openly about God or Jesus Christ.

Such madness evidencing the devolution of our culture could go on inexorably, said Larsen, but clearly, we are a ludicrous, nihilistic, upside-down society of skewed priorities and values, shaped by convoluted notions of what acceptable or politically correct behavior should be:

" Common sense, once common, is no more. It truly makes one wonder if there’s any hope for us. The prophet Isaiah said, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” It’s a morally dark day in America, and it’s getting darker." (ibid)

Once the citadels of Christianity, contemporary Western and American societies are now Godless, nihilistic, idolatrous, esoteric neo-pagan and mystical pantheist societies that dehumanize and disintegrate imago dei (the unique imprint God placed upon humanity), and openly promote vice (sin). 

For more than seventy years this disastrous and still unfolding state of affairs has convinced many perceptive thinkers to believe that Western civilization has shifted to decline, disintegration and atrophy.  For example, more than sixty years ago, German sociologist Karl Mannheim saw that Western civilization was in sharp decline and is even  now "collapsing before our eyes." (Man and Society: In an Age of Reconstruction, Mannheim, p. 15)

 Western and American society is now variously described in such terms as post-capitalist (Ralf Dahrendorf), post-bourgeois (George Lichtheim),post-modern (Amitai Etzioni),  post-literary (Marshall McLuhan), post-civilized (Kenneth Boulding), post-traditional (S.N. Eisenstadt), post-historic (Roderick Seidenberg), post-industrial (Daniel Bell), post-Puritan, post-Protestant and post-Christian (Sidney Ahlstrom).  (Faith and History: A Comparison of Christian and Modern Views of History, pp. 162f, from "Idols for Destruction, Herbert Schlossberg, p. 2)

This outpouring of pessimism and despair is what we ought to expect from mainly secular intellectuals. Their religiously pagan worldview within its' closed system (anti-supernatural universe) positing the evolutionary ascent of man from primordial matter to a more perfect state leaves them confounded as well as spiritually and morally impoverished.   But supernatural Christian theism along with its Hebraic antecedents and in particular its' doctrines of creation ex nihilo and  eschatology (Rev. 22:13) are explicit statements that history has both a definite beginning and end.  Events between these two boundary stones have meaning relevant to the 'death of God,' moral decay, idolatry, perversely sexualized nature worship and collapse of Western and American civilization.

In order that we may understand the spirit of madness sweeping through our decaying, 'death of God' society Herbert Schlossberg, author of Idols for Destruction, as well as a leading scholar on the relationship between Christianity and the societies in which it has existed, proposes that we use idolatry as a framework for comprehension.   The biblical explanation of madness and depravity in connection with the end of society resides in the concept of judgment upon an idolatrous people, who being evil and perilous to their own existence and that of others, have liberated themselves from  God's perfect law.  

According to Pastor R. Mark Musser, author of "Nazi Oaks: The Green Sacrifice of the Judeo-Christian Worldview in the Holocaust," the worship of the Holy God as the Creator and human ethics go hand in hand in the Mosaic Law.   The first four commandments demand love for the Holy God.  Commandment five demands love for parents, and commandments six through ten demand love for other people.  Man was thus commanded to worship and love God as His Maker,
 
"and the best way to fulfill this was to treat one's neighbor with love and respect precisely because he too was made in God's image."(p. 47)
 
As such, the entire Mosaic code was written with the reality of Genesis 1 (creation ex nihilo) in mind, "and once this truth was forgotten or compromised by idolatrous nature worship,"  love and respect for both God and man inevitably diminishes as the fundamental distinction between man and nature becomes increasingly blurred:

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

Scripture depicts a societies' people as either having submitted themselves to their Maker, the Triune God and His moral law, or else as ungodly idolaters who have rebelled against him. The judgment and wrath of God is a divine response to Godless idolaters.  This is how the Old Testament portrays Israel.  Israel had become an evil nation of idolaters fully deserving the judgment God brought against it.  Its' rebellion against God was accompanied by a turning to idols, and this self-serving Godlessness and unrighteousness brought the nation to its' end:

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth."  Romans 1:18

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of  idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor). The will of the idolater is not in submission to God but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride leads to contempt for and outright hatred of God the Father Almighty  and neighbor, unchanging truth, moral law, goodness, wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, and institutions in favor of  lust for power, perverse sexuality, and dehumanization of other people.  In the Soviet Union, Darwinism unleashed madness which resulted in psychological and physical slavery, population control schemes,  brutality, terror, mass-murder (genocide) and man-made famines:

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

"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, F. M. Pigido -an economist who lived and worked in Ukraine during the Famine of 1932-1933, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)

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

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

According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist 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)

 Marxist Communists systematically stole the personal property of Russians, confiscated and sexually perverted their children, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

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

How many died in all? Estimates vary from a low of 160,000,000 to a high of 300,000,000 men, women and children worked to death, burned in ovens, gassed, starved, shot, knifed, electrocuted, tortured to death, hung, crucified, and cruelly murdered in many other ways. 

For more than two centuries Western and American ‘death of God’ religious and culture leaders  have disregarded God even though the evil effects were mostly confined to their own circles.  But then they deliberately desecrated Western and American Christian tradition and lived in ways that would have spelled disaster if emulated by rank and file citizens said Os Guinness:

“But now in the early twenty-first century, their movement from disregard to desecration to decadence is going mainstream, and the United States is only the lead society among those close to the tipping point.... Soon, as the legalization and then normalization of polyamory, polygamy, pedophilia and incest follow the same logic as that of abortion and homosexuality, the socially destructive consequences of these trends will reverberate throughout society until social chaos is beyond recovery.” (Renaissance: The Power of the Gospel However Dark the Times, Os Guinness, p. 20)

The moment has indeed arrived for pedophile sex rings and sex slavery in our idolatrous, dehumanized post-Christian culture:

"In 2005, the world was introduced to reclusive billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, friend to princes and an American president, a power broker with the darkest of secrets: He was also a pedophile, accused of recruiting dozens of underage girls into a sex-slave network, buying their silence and moving along, although he has been convicted of only one count of soliciting prostitution from a minor. Visitors to his private Caribbean island, known as “Orgy Island,” have included Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Stephen Hawking.”  (The ‘Sex Slave’ Scandal That Exposed Pedophile Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, Maureen Callahan, New York Post, Oct. 9,

In declaring the nonexistence of the supernatural dimension and the death of the Holy God Creator of heaven and earth and two thousand years of Christian witness, Western society is systematically replacing the living Holy God with "idolatrous self"and nature (Gaia);  the Word (John 1) with evolutionary energy or Christ consciousness; Holy Scripture with scientism as the only legitimate form of knowledge; man as Gods spiritual image-bearer with evolved ape-man as god; the Ten Commandments with relativism; and sin and free will with natural causation, a process commonly referred to as secularization.  

Whatever man places at the top of his idolatrous pyramid of self-gratifying, self-glorifying values is ultimately what he serves and this profoundly affects the way he lives and interacts with the people around him or her.  

When a society turns away from the Holy Triune God to deified self, it is an idolatrous society heading for destruction because at the root of the rejection of the living God is the rebellious assertion that man has not been created by Him, that he is not dependent upon Him for his own life, and not created in His spiritual image. He is not dependent upon the living God but is rather a man-god, the creator of God, and the master of time, being, and the world who through his own powers will save himself.

But as the days of (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Matthew 24:37

Scripture tells us that prior to the return of Jesus Christ at the end of history, the nations of the earth will have become evil swamps of idolatrous tyrants who have forgotten their own souls, believe that all that exists is the evolving universe of psychic energy, and prefer evil over good.  Earth and its idolatrous citizenry will have deteriorated to the Godless condition that it had been during Noah's day.    

Lest we mistakenly perceive idolaters as nice, misunderstood people, in "Journey to the Celestial City," Wayne Martindale sets straight this error with his unvarnished depiction of hell-bound idolaters as haters of good people. All that's left in them is self-centeredness, hate, envy, lies, and thoughts of theft and murder and sadistic pleasure received from hurting other people,, They are evil, violent idolaters who prefer evil thoughts, evil words, evil companions and evil acts. Thus when they encounter good people they,

"...condemn them, perverting their reason by rationalizing evil and finding ways to blame the good or God or religion for their problems and the problems of the world. They already hate goodness because it implicitly condemns the evil they have chosen. They wouldn't like heaven if they could have it. They are, in a sense, already in hell, preferring darkness to light." (Eternal Perspectives, Randy Alcorn, p 76)

Since idolatry leads to the conceptual murder of God and the rejection of His work on the cross, this means that by their own choices they assign themselves to hell by judging themselves unfit for Paradise.   In affirmation, C.S. Lewis says that Hell is of their choosing:

"There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, in the end, 'Thy will be done.' All that are in Hell chose it."

The Western and American Gnostic Caste System

Without our realizing it, the chief ancient and modern rival of supernatural Christianity--Gnostic Modernism (occult pantheism)---has triumphed over the West and America.   It emerged out of the Renaissance, a time of revitalization of ancient mystery religions, spiritism, magic, pantheist animism, and inverse evolutionary origin accounts,  and began its' infiltration of the American Christian church at the beginning of the last century.   In speaking of its' inroads J. Gresham Machen said,

"A terrible crisis has arisen in the Church. In the ministry of evangelical  churches are to be found hosts of those who reject the gospel of Christ. By the  equivocal use of traditional phrases, by the representation of differences of  opinion as though they were only differences about the interpretation of the  Bible, entrance into the Church was secured for those who are hostile to the  very foundations of the faith. And now there are some indications that the  fiction of conformity to the past is to be thrown off, and the real meaning of  what has been taking place is to be allowed to appear. The Church, it is now  apparently supposed, has almost been educated up to the point where the shackles  of the Bible can openly be cast away and the doctrine of the Cross of Christ can  be relegated to the limbo of discarded subtleties." (Liberalism or Christianity, Machen, The Princeton Theological Review, Vol. 20, No. 1, 1922, Page 93, Whitehorse Inn)

For faithful orthodox Christians, the 'very foundations of the faith' are the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis and to a greater degree, the Christian worldview.  Genesis is the Divine account of the origin of the universe, of all life, of the creation and purpose of man and woman, the foundation and purpose of marriage, the roles of the two sexes male and female, and of the value of children.

In His divine revelation God also tells us what went wrong with the world and man in the account of the fall and reveals something of man’s cosmic adversary and his timeless methods of deception and seduction used to lead men away from God.  Thus the question of evil, suffering, and death is explained in the first eleven chapters of Genesis as well as the ‘fix,’ meaning the only way of salvation.

Gnostic Modernism (mystical pantheist spirituality) and its' materialist evolutionary counterpart are subtly disguised syncretic mixtures of Babylonian Cabalism, ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, the Mysteries from the time of Babylon, spiritual evolution, Greek and Roman nature religions,Hinduism, Buddhism, reincarnation, karma and an inverted evolutionary account bespeaking the evolutionary transformation of various creatures into human beings.

 The primary doctrine for both variations is an inverted evolutionary account of origins.  Other commonalities are denial of creation ex nihilo, the incarnation and deity of Jesus Christ and His resurrection, and  denial of hell.  Gnostics of both stripes find salvation in the gnosis of elite men such as scientists, philosophers, and spiritual gurus and either teach a godless evolving  universe of matter or a pantheist based conception of God as divine energy, Life force, Mind of the Universe, Christ consciousness, or Omega, for example.    Gnostic Modernism further claims that as God is supposedly in everything, and everything is continuously evolving, then God is always in process of 'becoming' or 'changing.'   Thus all things, including the Bible and the Christian church, the two sexes, truth, and moral laws must change or become 'contemporary' too.  

Within Darwinian biological evolution, evolutionary dynamics are not empirical science but rather metaphysical conceptions while in theological modernism they are spiritual conceptions.  From the time of the Renaissance when high-ranking, influential Christian Churchmen, intellectuals, and mystics had rejected the fundamental teachings of Christian theism in favor of the Mysteries, Cabalism and other ancient creeds on through to the German Idealists of early 19th century, evolution was viewed as a spiritual conception bespeaking progress (transformation) of spirit over time within many different bodies.

The German Idealists were mystical philosophers of pantheism who predated Darwin's Origin of Species by at least half a century.  In 1799 the mystic philosopher Friedrich Schelling summarized what was fascinating him as well as his mystical contemporaries such as J.G. Fichte and the occult Hermetic magician Hegel:

"History as a whole is a progressive, gradually self-disclosing revelation of the Absolute." (A Brief History of Evolutionary Spirituality, Tom Huston)

The modern conception of spiritual evolution can be traced to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.  Writing on “The Ultimate Origin of Things” in the year 1697—six years after speculating in his Protogaea that over the vast course of the earth’s history “even the species of animals have many times been transformed” he claimed that,

a cumulative increase of the beauty and universal perfection of the works of God, a perpetual and unrestricted progress of the universe as a whole must be recognized, such that it advances to a higher state of development.”

Though the idea that man and creation are not fallen but rather evolving upward from primordial matter in a ceaseless ascent toward perfection had already been intuited over seventy years earlier by the German mystic Jakob Böhme, it was Leibniz who first placed it in a scientific context.

Over the next few decades Gnostic thinkers such as Diderot, Maupertuis, Buffon, and Voltaire all wrote about the fascinating topic of evolution but, "like any self-respecting champions of the Age of Enlightenment, rarely felt compelled to inject divinity into their more scientific speculations."

By upholding the liberating power of rationalism, science and evolution to subvert the fundamentals of the Bible and Christian theism, they actively sought to draw a clear distinction between science and spirituality, reason and religion.  In this context, through much of the eighteenth century, the many musings about the idea of evolution frequently took on a strictly naturalistic or materialistic tone:

"It was only around 1799, ten years after the storming of the Bastille, which ignited the French Revolution and cemented the success of the rational Enlightenment in the annals of the Western mind, that these varied intimations of evolution finally congealed into a cohesive new model of reality. Arising, once again, from the fertile depths of the German zeitgeist, it was a cosmological and metaphysical paradigm that seamlessly united science and spirituality—an evolutionary vision that stretched from the simplest atoms of the distant past to a sacred future in which human society would perfectly reflect the transcendent unity of the Divine. " (ibid, Huston)

In his essay, "The Paganization of New Testament Studies," Dr. Peter Jones exposes theological progressivism as neo-pagan Gnosticism and writes that throughout its history, its' primary goal has been the,

"... importation into the church via the use of Christian terminology, of the various historic expressions of pagan notions, in particular, the denial of God's transcendence. In this sense, the first "liberals" were the Gnostics. Certainly a form of Gnosticism, sometimes called proto-Gnosticism is behind the denial of the incarnation in the Johannine epistles, and of the resurrection in the early and later Paulines. Interestingly, the Liberals of the modern period have had great admiration for the proto-Gnostics, in particular, Marcion. In A.D. 150, Marcion, a theologian from Pontus in Asia Minor, was excommunicated from the Church in Rome for heretical teaching. He dismissed God the Creator, the Old Testament, the Mosaic law, and three of the gospels. From the few epistles of Paul that he accepted, he expunged Old Testament quotations and claimed to worship the "alien god" behind the God of Scripture. " 

Twentieth century's most dangerous expression of secular Gnosticism was Marxist Communism, a form of Manichean Gnosticism.  Also called scientific socialism, Marxist Communism was the first natural religion of scientific evolutionary Gnostic atheism to emerge out of the “God is dead” Enlightenment period.  Since scientific socialism is a religion of  'matter' and the energies that work on matter it requires the unmaking of man created in the spiritual likeness of the living, personal Creator.

Bella Dodd was an important leader of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) in the 1930' s and 1940's. Her book, "School of Darkness" (1954) reveals that Communism---the promise of a utopia-- was a hoax perpetrated by a banker/corporatist coterie "to control the common man" and to advance world tyranny.  In chapter eleven of Dodd's book she notes that the unmaking of man as God's spiritual image-bearer is the key to the spiritual, intellectual and physical enslavement of mankind:

 “This is the key to the mental enslavement of mankind: that the individual is made into nothing, that he operates as the physical part of what is considered a higher group intelligence and acts at the will of that higher intelligence….”

The mental and physical enslavement (dehumanization of the masses) is required by highly evolved gnostikoi (pneumatics), proud spiritual elites who see themselves as the only ones capable of reason and of ordering the lives of everyone else, right down to the smallest detail.

In "Against the Protestant Gnostics," (p. 34) pastor and theologian Philip J, Lee writes that gnostikoi take it upon themselves to divide humankind into three categories:

1. Somatic (hylic): the masses of unevolved mindless beast-men who are content to exist on a bodily level: eating, drinking, defecating, sleeping, partying, copulating, sodomizing each other, and dying.  Hylic are mere beast-men beyond help.  

2. Psychics: those who function at the higher level of mind, intellect, emotions---the commonsense types who comprise the majority of the Church, Tea Partiers, etc.

3. Pneumatics: the elite spiritual gnostikoi----the man-gods comprising America's Progressive Ruling Class.

The Gnostic Basilides, when asked if somatics could really be called men at all, categorically denied it.   Sounding just like modern gnostic Marxists, their fascist brethren and America's gnostic "elites" who dehumanized the masses in order to destroy the family, enslave, manipulate, propagandize, indoctrinate, gas, starve to death, euthanize and abort them, Basilides said: 

"We are men; all the others are pigs and dogs."  (ibid, Lee)

Modern Gnostic regimes (Marxist Communism, Hitler's Socialism) began by rejecting the Triune God and Christ's deity, denying objective standards of right and wrong, and forcing Darwinism---which dehumanizes mankind---onto an unwitting population.   Darwinism allows the gnostikoi to throw out sanctity of life and reduce mankind to matter in motion.  The end case in every instance, was to place absolute power over dehumanized masses (somatics) in the hands of antihuman psychopaths and autocratic states to be wielded without restraint or mercy.  

Of all belief systems, modern Gnosticism has been by far the bloodiest.  In his book, Death by Government, R.J. Rummel comprehensively details the roughly 170 million people murdered by Gnostic governments during the 20th century. 

Even at its mildest, as is thus far the case here in America, there is a steady level of lying, confiscation, corruption, fraud, and stifling of freedoms and free speech.  For the first time ever, Americans are afraid of saying certain words.  Parents fear disciplining their own children.  More ominously, the gnostikoi in control of American institutions---government, seminaries, education, media, science, finance, and law have nearly succeeded in replacing the living, transcendent God with Darwinism, thus allowing them to throw out both sanctity of life and objective standards.  "We the people" have been dehumanized---reduced to matter and energy in motion.

As early as 1926, President Calvin Coolidge was aware of and deeply concerned by the insidious spread evolutionary materialism (Gnostic neo-paganism) in America.  As he knew, Americans are free only because of the supernatural Judeo-Christian foundation laid by the country's founders.  In a speech he delivered in Philadelphia (July 5, 1926) to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence he tried to call Americans back to their Biblically-based heritage.

He reminded Americans that the Declaration's principles of liberty arise from man's God-given inalienable rights.  And these are found, said Coolidge,

"in the texts, the sermons, and the writings of the early colonial clergy..."  The clergy preached equality "because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man."  Sanctity of life, the right to self-defense, and all the rest of our individual liberties were justified "by the text that we are all created in the divine image, all partakers of the divine spirit."  God's children therefore, have no "superiors" there are no modern-day "divine rights kings"  (or gnostikoi) who possess "any right to rule...over them." (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

The Declaration,

"(is) a great spiritual document."  Its principles are not material but spiritual.  "Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man---these are not elements we can see and touch.  They are ideals (whose) source and roots (are) in religious convictions.  They belong to the unseen world." (ibid)

President Coolidge cautioned Americans that,

"......unless the faith of the Americans in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish.  We can not continue to enjoy the result if we abandon the cause." (ibid)

Coolidge ended his speech with a stark warning:

"We must not sink into a pagan materialism..."  

Issuing another wake-up call, Dr. Jones closed his essay with a warning that comes from Johannes van Oort, Professor of church history and the history of dogma at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and world expert on Manichean Gnosticism.  Oort states a fact and gives a challenge:

"…Gnosis in one form or another is expected to become the main expression of secular religion in the new millennium. In order to equip the Church for this new age, the scientific study of Gnosticism is vital."

Back to Mars Hill: Gnosticism, Baphomet, Cyborgs, Death of the West, and Massacre of Christians

In ‘Largest Massacre of Christians in Syria’ Ignored" Raymond Ibrahim reports that one of the worst Christian massacres complete with,

 "...mass graves, tortured-to-death women and children, and destroyed churches—recently took place in Syria, at the hands of the U.S.-supported jihadi “rebels”; and the U.S. government and its “mainstream media” mouthpiece are, as usual, silent (that is, when not actively trying to minimize matters)."  (The Aquila Report)

 In other words, the sinister power stealthily aiding and abetting the massacre of Syrian Christians is our own ‘deep state’ Gnostic Progressive Leftist controlled government.   

Though names have changed over time and new members added, it remains the case that behind the murderous Soviet Union, Hitler's occult National Socialist Reich, the ongoing destruction of the West, redistribution of its wealth, and replacement of Westerners and Americans with Muslims, there has been a powerful financial coterie of 'elite' progressives and like-minded travelers committed to a mystical pantheist worldview, apotheosis, self-empowerment, revolution and death.  From the turn of the century till now, the coterie has been financing catastrophic worldwide wars, revolutions and mass murder, particularly of faithful Jews and Christians since the turn of the century:

"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)

Despite the election of Donald Trump, most of America's government, financial institutions, defense, education, media, music, liberalized churches, seminaries, and other cultural and mind-shaping institutions remain in the hands of God-and-America-hating 'deep state' Gnostic Progressives, the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from the beginning,

 "... has been characterized by a desire to be free from the burden of Christianity...As a rebellion against Christianity, its negative goal defined its positive form: the desire to remove the church and replace it with the state gave liberalism its structure, beliefs, and goals."  (Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Worship, Benjamin Wiker)

Wiker writes that as far back as the Renaissance the strong impulse to throw off the restraints of the personal Triune God and Christianity was already at work in certain Churchmen and intellectuals, hence their eventual embrace of anti-creation evolutionary materialism:

 “The desire to be liberated from the constraints of Christianity was the original reason for modern liberalism’s embrace of a world defined entirely by materialism—the view that there are no immaterial entities like God of the soul, but only physical entities. This embrace of materialism began as far back as the Renaissance. And the same impulse was behind the nineteenth-century enthusiasm for scientific materialism, and it remains a staple of liberalism today."  (Ibid, Benjamin Wiker)

Within the materialist and evolutionary pattern of thought,

"there is neither need nor room for the supernatural. The earth was not created; it evolved. So did all the animals and plants that inhabit it, including our human selves, mind and soul as well as brain and body. So did religion."   (The Humanist Frame, Julian Huxley, p. 18)

Having rejected the Christian roots of their own civilization, contemporary Progressive Leftists have merged materialism with a new Gnostic mystical pantheist order of beliefs of which global socialism, a form of monism (collectivism or totalism), is a logical expression.  In keeping with Marxist Communism, Nazi Socialism, New Age Spirituality, Luciferianism, and “God is dead” theology, Progressive Leftism is a Neo-Gnostic movement that exalts Lucifer as the Light Bearer and emancipator of man while demonizing Jehovah as an evil, malformed, ignorant deity sometimes called Yaldabaoth, the 'fallen' Holy Creator God of the Old Testament who created the evil material world, angels and human beings (automatons).  Thus Helena Blavatsky, architect of New Age spirituality concluded that it is but natural,

"...to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it was he who was the 'Harbinger of Light,' bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah...Indeed, (mankind) was taught wisdom and the hidden knowledge by the 'Fallen Angel." As man's benefactor, Lucifer continues to assist man's evolution." (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, pp. 224-225) 

Rather than Yaldabaoth, modern Gnostic Transhumanists such as Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association, suggest that the Holy Trinity is an evil alien supercomputer, an ego-driven consciousness, the evil Lord Archon – a projection of artificial intelligence. The Lord Archon has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent human beings from remembering that they are divine spirits whose real home is the Cosmic Mind or Gnostic Pleroma. (1)

All permutations of Western neo-Gnosticism believe the world is not real but rather a simulation or mental construct in the mind for example, of extraterrestrials, the Lord Archon, or Yaldabaoth. This idea not only undergirds identity politics, constructivism, and social justice (2) but is strikingly similar to Hinduism's Brahman. Brahman however, is not an evil Archon but the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (prakriti matter, anima mundi or prima materia), the Essence of all phenomena, meaning that the universe exists only as a mental construction in the mind of Brahman: brahma satyam jagan mithya, or "Brahman is real, the world is unreal." (swamij.com/mahavakyas)

“...pride is their necklace; The garment of violence covers them. Their eye bulges from fatness. The imaginations of their heart run riot. They mock and wickedly speak of oppression; They speak from on high. They have set their mouth against the heavens,  And their tongue parades through the earth.”   Psalm 73: 6-9

In this light it can be seen why Western Gnostic movements are vehemently anti-supernatural and anti-creation ex nihilo in favor of an inverted evolutionary exegesis.  Western Gnosticism is a redoubt of the proud who speak sophistry from on high while mocking and ridiculing decent, hard-working Americans.  Gnostic Progressivism is amoral, satanic, technocratic, and chiliastic.  It represents the ultimate inversion and reversion of the Triune God, His creation, Satan, reality, good and evil, and the fall of Adam and Eve.  As opposed to the Biblical version, the Gnostic account reverses Adam and Eve's violation of God's command as merely a mindless failure to commit the act rightly in the first place while the serpent is no longer Satan, but an “incognito savior” who makes man aware of his own innate divinity and promises to unlock the god within all of the chosen. This theme of apotheosis underpins neo-Gnosticism, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnosticism and the pagan Mystery religions from the time of Babylon. (3) 

This is why demonically deceived Gnostic Progressives look upon themselves as god-like redeemers of a world corrupted by Jehovah, Christianity, faithful Jews, the procreative family, capitalism, property ownership, racism, sexism, homophobia, and class divisions.    It is demonic mendacity that allows them to regard "those who oppose them as eternally damned." (“The Threat We Face: what is the nature of the adversary we are up against?” David Horowitz, frontpagemag.com, October 9, 2013)

Gnostic Progressivism: A Brief Timeline

In 1947, the Progressive Liberal head of UNESCO, Julian Huxley, wrote a book entitled, "UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy." His book was a blueprint for a socialistic, evolutionary pantheist, collectivist New World Order that called for a single 'new' spirituality — a mixture of Buddhist materialist-pantheism, Luciferian Theosophy, paganized evolutionary Christianity, neo-Gnosticism, and other worldly traditions.  Huxley’s androgynous collectivist system called for one language, one way of thinking, a world food bank, a world bank, and a universal identification system.

 Huxley believed a global order could be brought about by syncretizing Christianity with the 'new' evolutionary spirituality, thus the task before UNESCO:

 "...is to help the emergence of a single world culture with its own philosophy and background of ideas and with its own broad purpose." (Crossroad.to/globalism/Julian-Huxley)

 Huxley spoke of two opposing, antithetical worldviews — one founded on the supernatural, personal, Triune God and creation ex nihilo and the other on anti-creation evolutionary materialism and pantheist monism confronting each other from the West and the East. In describing them he said,

 "You may categorize the two philosophies as...individualism versus collectivism or as the American versus the Russian...or as capitalism versus communism, or as Christianity versus Marxism. Can these opposites be reconciled, this antithesis be resolved in a higher synthesis? I believe...this can happen...through the inexorable dialectic of evolution." (ibid)

The abomination spawned through the inexorable dialectic of evolution is evolutionary theism, the "higher synthesis" resulting from the reconciliation of opposites. 

In 1954, Whittaker Chambers warned that Western Progressive Liberal ‘elitists’ were committed to a secret complicity with murderous Communists.  Though they outwardly profess dislike for slave labor camps, purges, MVD, famines, et al, it is only,

 "....because they are afraid of being caught in them.  If they could have Communism without the brutalities of ruling that the Russian experience bred, they have only marginal objections (because they do not find them unjustifiable).  Why should they object?  What else is socialism but Communism with the claws retracted?" (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 253)

 Four years later, Conservative intellectual Frank Meyer summarized the Liberal pathology:

 "contemporary Liberalism is in agreement with Communism on ---the necessity and desirability of socialism (that) all inherited value---theological, philosophical, political (is) without intrinsic virtue or authority; that therefore, no irreconcilable differences exist between it and Communism..."  (Ibid, p. 137)

 Meyer concludes that amoral Progressive Liberals are,

 "... unfit for the leadership of a free society, and (are) intrinsically incapable of offering serious opposition to the Communist offensive." (ibid)

 In his book "The Naked Capitalist," W. Cleon Skousen exposes an unholy alliance of evil intentioned Progressive Liberal bankers and capitalists, American and English and both left and right, who financed the Bolshevik Revolution and the resulting Soviet Union.  Skousen verifies his findings through the writings of Dr. Carroll Quigley, a professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University and mentor to Bill Clinton.

 Quigley's opus, "Tragedy and Hope," reveals one of the worlds' best kept secrets: a gargantuan power complex that from the start has been controlling Marxist-Communist, Socialist, and anarchist groups:

"...the power that...Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or communist power but...the power of the international financial coterie." (p. 954, Tragedy and Hope)

According to Quigley the international financial coterie was the real power behind monstrous crimes against humanity committed by Communist and Nazi Socialist regimes. According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were murderous 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)

 Why did Quigley expose the existence of the global financial coterie? Because he said, it is now too late for the little people to turn the tide. He urged them to not fight the noose which is already around their necks, for they will only hang themselves:

"On the other hand, those who go along with the immense pressure which is beginning to be felt by all humanity will eventually find themselves in a man-made millennium of peace and prosperity." (The Naked Capitalist, Skousen, pp. 4-6)

Recently, top Progressive Leftists met with communists, Transhumanists, Cyborgs, Islamists and other powerful globalists from around the world to push for a 'new world order.'  Globalists gathered on the Arabian Peninsula for the 2018 World Government Summit where more than a few speakers made clear that individual liberty, self-government, and the “America First” agenda were in the crosshairs. On the other hand:

"Big Government, trans-humanism, and globalism were presented as the solution to basically everything, from alleged man-made “global warming” and health problems to unemployment and even hate. Aside from global governance and statism, one of the key themes of the conference was the merger of man and machine to become “cyborgs.” Artificial Intelligence and “Happiness,” directed by authorities, were also major topics.” (Creepy “World Government Summit” Targets America, Freedom,” Alex Newman, The New American, Feb. 21, 2018)

 Gnostic Progressivism: America's State Worship

Progressives believe their New World Order is a certainty because throughout contemporary America, Gnostic Progressive ideology reigns triumphant.  Its' inverted, dehumanizing evolutionary exegesis has captured the hearts of millions of Americans, including great numbers of Christian seminarians and theologians.  Progressive Liberalism, said Wiker, is now our State worship, which is why America has fallen down the rabbit hole into the upside-down fantasy realm of Mad Hatters and Red Queens where up is down, good is evil, male is female and in the eyes of the Gnostic left, American patriotism is not only illegitimate but equivalent to “white nationalism' and is racist."  (How Identity Politics is Designed to Destroy Us, David Horowitz, FrontPage Magazine, Feb 26, 2018) 

The racial identity politics of the Gnostic Progressive Left is part of a larger spectrum of poisonous “identity politics,”

"which has been embraced by the Democratic Party and is better understood as cultural Marxism. Cultural Marxists divide the population into racial, ethnic and gender groups and arrange them in a hierarchy of alleged oppression. This perverse and divisive view of American society was in fact the organizing principle of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, which justified her candidacy as ending the alleged inequality of women and the mythical wage-gender pay gap. Her opponents, she said, belonged in a “basket of deplorables,” which she identified as “racists, sexists, homophobes, Islamophobes, xenophobes – you name it." (ibid)

America's Crisis is Spiritual

The Western and American crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of the transcendent Holy God and of man's progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent (naturalistic) conception of reality.  Thus today we stand again on Mars Hill surrounded by hostile Gnostic pagan and mystical pantheist idolaters, Cyborgs, the horned goat-headed demon Baphomet, a host of blue-skinned Hindu gods and goddesses, and Luciferian and Kundalini serpent powers (evolution). The battle against spiritual darkness defies our imagination.

Why Post-Christian Pagan America has Succumbed to Transgender (Androgyny)

Based on an analysis of the foundational presuppositions of Mormon theology, this writer predicted in a 2013 essay entitled, "Why Mormonism will Surrender to Homosexuality," the capitulation of the Mormon Church and by extension the Boy Scouts to inclusion of practicing homosexuals.   Now with passage of the Supreme Court ruling, Obergefell v. Wade and by extension the declaration that a man (Bruce Jenner) is now a woman (Caitlyn), post-Christian America has also surrendered to the pagan ideal of transgender (androgyny).

 The reason for both Mormon and American acquiescence lies in one of the many crucial differences between Mormon theology and Biblical: the Genesis account of supernatural creation ex nihilo rather than Mormonism's naturalistic and evolutionary account.

 Like ancient pagan sages before him, Joseph Smith taught that matter is eternal and the Mormon God, having no power to create out of nothing, merely reorganized already present matter, which has no beginning or end and cannot be destroyed:

"Since Mormons believe that the elements are eternal, it follows that they deny the ex nihilo creation." (Encyclopedia of Mormonism 1:400).

From this it follows that a mere man can transform and/or evolve into a god, as Smith explains:

"It is necessary we should understand the character and being of God and how he came to be so; for I am going to tell you how God came to be God. We have imagined and suppose that God was God from all eternity. I will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see. and that he was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself did... Here then, is eternal life – to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priest to God, the same as all Gods have done before you, namely by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one…” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, 345-47)

In the Genesis account, the living, three times holy, supernatural Triune God spoke all things into existence ex-nihilo, meaning out of nothing. He is personal, self-existent, eternal, immutable, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He is the sovereign Lord of the universe. He is the God of all creation. He is the God who stands outside of the space-time dimension, thus creation actually began before time came to be as God spoke life, soul/spirit, matter and all else out of nothing. The living, supernatural God is the First Cause of all things. (Psalm 33:6; John 1:3; Romans 4:17; Hebrews 11:3):

"For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together." Col. 1:16, 17

In the "Pagan Temptation," Christian scholar Thomas Molnar writes that the idea that matter is eternal is a pattern of thought stretching back to the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greeks in the West and in the East to the Upanishads.  In this way of thinking, everything somehow mechanically emerged, evolved, or progressed out of either eternally existing matter as the ancients and Joseph Smith taught, or in contemporary terms from out of matter spontaneously-generated by an exploding Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) and undirected evolution over millions of years as contemporary atheists affirm or by a useless god unable to create from nothing as evolutionary theists teach.

From Babylon's evolutionary account of origins, the Enuma Elish, on through to our own time, primordial matter has gone by many names. For example: divine One Substance, Logos, watery abyss, void, Omega, Quantum Void, and the Energy behind everything.

The Egyptian Sun-God Ra, for example, emerged (created himself) from out of Nu – the divine One Substance (primordial matter) and then similar to Joseph Smith's account, became god "by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one:"

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

In all mystical pantheist systems positing matter as "psychic energy," "spirit," or impersonal, unknowing Mind, Molnar writes that spirit is not personal. It is neither male nor female. It does not live, think or speak; it merely is. (Psalm 115:5; 135: 16) The human soul therefore is not created in the spiritual image of the living One God in Three Persons, thus it follows that humans are not persons but rather uncreated aspects or units of the evolving universe of matter and energy.  Nor are they either male or female but rather two-in-ones, meaning androgynes or transgenders as they are called today.   

 This is naturalism, which is the belief taught by Joseph Smith and either taught or implied by evolutionary theism, quantum spirituality, New Age, Luciferianism, and transhumanism that there is neither living supernatural Holy God nor heavenly realm outside of the space-time dimension. There is only the natural dimension in process of evolution where progress means that children may choose their own race and gender:

"The state of Delaware is poised to adopt what is known as “Regulation 225.” Approved both by the Delaware State Education Association and Gov. John Carney, Regulation 225 would safeguard children’s “protected characteristics,” such as gender, age, race, sexual orientation and gender identity.” (Barbara Kay: Delaware Students Can Now Choose Their Own Race. This Should End Well” National Post, Feb. 13, 2018)

Naturalism is held in common by paganism, mystical pantheism and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-Biblical – but more specifically, non-Genesis account (creation ex nihilo) – thought systems.

At the heart of ancient and contemporary naturalism is monism, which refers to the view that pre-existent or spontaneously generated matter is the Ultimate Substance of which the universe and all things are made, therefore as the ancient Hermetic magic formula decrees, "as above, so below," meaning ‘all is one.’

In his book, "The God of Sex: How Spirituality Defines Your Sexuality," Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthXchange, writes that pagan monism is a,

"…mystical, unitive experience, a state in which distinctions disappear and opposites are joined. Androgyny, on a sexual level, reflects and confirms such an experience." (Ibid, p.79)

Writing during the student revolution of the 1960s, Francis Schaeffer that saw a transformation of consciousness, or closing of the heart to Jesus Christ was already permeating and overtaking the Western mindset, moving it away from the Christian ideal to the pagan model:

"Some forms of homosexuality today...are a philosophic expression...a denial of the antithesis. It has led in this case to an obliteration of the distinction between man and woman. So the male and the female as complimentary partners are finished." (The God of Sex: How Spirituality Defines Your Sexuality, Dr. Peter Jones, pp. 78-79)

 Under the unitive influence of monism male and female distinctions drain into androgyny, hence the use of toddlers, older children and even babies for the sexual satisfaction of adults is not only tolerated but prized, hence the pagan sage Xenophon declared:

"I must now speak of pederasty, for it affects education." (The One and the Many, Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 73)

Now that the Supreme Court has redefined marriage to accommodate homosexual (two-in-ones) love, the use of babies and children for the sexual satisfaction of adults looms large:

"Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals" Already, "Sex offender laws protecting children have been challenged in several states including California, Georgia and Iowa. Sex offenders claim the laws prohibiting them from living near schools or parks are unfair because it penalizes them for life."  (That was FAST: Yesterday it was gay marriage; Now look who wants “equal rights” Ashley Edwardson, allenbwest.com, June 27, 2015

John W. Whitehead, a constitutional attorney and founder and president of The Rutherford Institute is the author of ‘Battlefield America: The War on the American People.’ In a well-sourced article on The Rutherford Institute, Whitehead alerts us to alarming and horrific facts about child sex-trafficking in the U.S.:   

"Sex trafficking—especially the buying and selling of young girls—is the fastest growing business in organized crime (CBS Austin) and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally, after drugs and guns (WGBH).  Why?  Because, as investigative journalist Amy Fine Collins points out, it is ‘more lucrative and much safer to sell malleable teens than drugs or guns.  A pound of heroin or an AK-47 can be retailed once, but a young girl can be sold 10 to 15 times a day.”  (Child Sex Trafficking is the Fastest Growing Criminal Business in the U.S., Dr. Eowyn, The Olive Branch Report, Feb. 15, 2018)

The USSC’s legalization of same sex marriage means there will be no logical end-point as to where such affective attachments could lead—transgender mating, incest, pederasty, pedophilia, sado-masochistic homosexuality, polygamy, and eventually zoophilia.  And everyone will be obliged to conform:

"If you don’t believe that Caitlyn Jenner is a woman, you’re the worst kind of hateful. If you think a child deserves a mother and a father, you are a bigot. If you think a gender-dysphoric boy should not be treated as a girl, you’re evil. If you think a man should use the men’s restroom, regardless of what sex he thinks he is, you are discriminatory. If you think parents’ desire to get their children counseling help for their same-sex attraction is okay, you’re very dangerous. If your church teaches that homosexual sexual activity is wrong, your church is bigoted." (Is America Running Out of Patience with LGBT Activism? Glenn Stanton, Public Discourse, Feb. 13, 2018)

Since our culture is thoroughly sexualized and there are already few, if any, sexual moral standards, the generally amoral and dehumanized view of life communicated to the nation's children in nationwide school curricula via evolutionary science and obscene sex education classes is fated to descend into deeper and deeper levels of chaotic darkness.

Though heralded as a great victory for progressive forces, the Supreme Court ruling actually represents a great inversion and reversal of reality:

"Augustine in his City of God vividly describes the 5th century pagan “games” offered in honor of Tanit, the celestial “virgin” and mother of the gods. He also describes the public display of the goddess’s homosexual priests. “They were seen yesterday, their hair moist, their faces covered in make-up, their limbs flaccid, their walk effeminate, wandering through the squares and streets of Carthage, demanding from the public the means to subsidize their shameful life.”  (The Body Politic is Queer, Dr. Peter Jones, truthxchange, June 26, 2015)

Together with Decadence Festivals, Burning Man, and Electronic Trance Festivals are contemporary versions of the decadent parades witnessed by Augustine:

The difference is that often at the head of our parades are ordained “Christian” ministers. In some ways the apostate church is leading the culture. Indeed, it is the homosexual “theologians” who really understand the logic behind this cultural movement. Episcopal LGBTQ advocate Marie Alford-Harkey stresses the need for more bisexual-friendly churches, which celebrate sexual diversity through the mediums of preaching and worship, proposing “the Queer God who challenges the oppressive powers of heterosexual orthodoxy…[in order] to liberate God from the closet of traditional Christian thought.” In other words, inclusive churches are not simply accommodating practice but developing a whole new theory of theology and community." (Dr. Jones)

Creation Ex Nihilo, the Incarnation: Repugnant to Nature Systems

"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14

Due to the belief that physical matter is evil, the revolutionary impact of the Christian teaching about creation ex nihilo and the Incarnation was nothing less than a scandal for ancient pagan sages just as it is for 'new' pagan evolutionary naturalists, whether "Christian," New Age or secular.

Molnar writes that it was inconceivable to nature sages that the Divine One Substance should assume materiality,

"a thought as distasteful to their contemporaries as the idea of creation ex nihilo, which meant that matter too was God's creation..." (p. 26-27) 

 In company with ancient pagan sages, Western evolutionary cosmogonies reject creation ex nihilo and the Incarnation. While faithful Christians adhere to the fact that Christ's birth was the result of a miraculous conception, that Mary was a virgin yet still conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18), according to the Encyclopedia of Mormonism,

"Jesus Christ is not the Father of the spirits who have taken or yet shall take bodies upon this earth, for He is one of them. He is The Son, as they are sons and daughters of Elohim." (4:1676; Mormonism Research Ministry)

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like unto corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things."   Romans 1:21-26, 28-29

Putting all of this together, the first great stumbling block for all ancient and modern evolutionary nature systems is that they cannot account for the ultimate origin of life. This is why contemporary naturalists such as SETI researcher Paul Davies and Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the DNA molecule, have rejected abiogenesis, the ridiculous idea that matter spontaneously generated itself from nothing, in favor of panspermia.

Panspermia is the idea that life on earth was accidentally seeded by meteorites containing the essential building blocks of life or perhaps by highly evolved extraterrestrials from deep space that for billions of years have been guiding the evolution of man. The extraterrestrial idea was favored by Arthur C. Clarke in his book, "Childhood's End" and a variation on this theme has recently been advanced by Davies, Crick, and Ralph Pudritz of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.

Crick however admits that panspermia only pushes the unresolvable problem out into deep space:

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

The second great stumbling block follows from the first: the inability to account for conscious life, more specifically, personhood, or the soul of man.  This is why cognitive scientist Daniel Dennett, one of the Four Horsemen of Atheism, claims there really is no you, that soul, spirit and will are illusions caused by chemical interactions in the brain while his partner in nihilism, naturalist Tom Wolfe proclaims,

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

In stark contrast, the Revealed Word of God easily accounts for origin of life, conscious life and the two sexes:

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Genesis 1:27, KJB

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 Triune God then it logically follows that each human being 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)

In Biblical thought, the body is inert matter organized and vitalized by the soul. Thus a human life is a soul that informs inert matter. Therefore a body without a soul is no more than a disorganized mass of cells that would quickly deconstruct.  The citadel of the soul is spirit, the seat of reason, conscience, memory and will.  In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person.  Moreover, spirit allows man to spiritually transcend the natural dimension in order to access the supernatural dimension, thereby allowing him to enter into a personal relationship with the Spirit of God. Through this relationship, man's conscience is cleansed over time, thus enabling him to more perfectly orient the manner of his existence in this world in preparation for eternity.

A third stumbling block of ancient and modern evolutionary cosmogonies is the inability to account for the two created sexes, male and female, since all life somehow emerged out of genderless physical or spiritualized matter. Thus like their ancient counterparts, all modern nature systems, so-called Christian and otherwise, are fated to give way before the demands of gender-neutral homosexuality (androgyny) or queer.

By whatever label – homosexual, gay, lesbian, man-boy-lover, transgender, drag queen, drag king, or bi-sexual – androgyny and the world’s evolutionary nature systems go together like a hand and glove. Prior to Jesus Christ's earthly ministry pagan sages generally taught and practiced some form of gender-neutrality in keeping with their belief that matter is the gender-free "one substance" out of which all things emerged. But when Jesus Christ – fully man-fully God – walked this earth, nature sages came face to face with the awful Truth that the personal God really exists, and further, that He really did create just two distinct sexes, male and female.

Just as pre-flood men and post-flood nature sages and temple priests had exchanged the truth about the Holy God of Revelation for a lie (Romans 1:25-27) so have their modern "scientifically enlightened" counterparts--- secular pagan and occult pantheists and their evolutionary 'Christian' counterparts throughout countless universities, colleges and seminaries,:

"...chartered with a strong commitment to orthodox Christianity, only to erode first into liberalism and ultimately to secularism. Why did this happen? There are multiple, complex reasons for the apostasy of such institutions, but one key factor is the desire of professors to be intellectually recognized in the academic world. A slavish genuflection to the latest trends in academia seduces our leaders into conformity. One apologist once described this pattern as the “treason of the intellectuals”. If the secular establishment ridicules such tenets as the inspiration of the Bible, then insecure Christian professors, desperate to be accepted by their peers, quickly flee from orthodoxy, dragging the colleges, seminaries, and ultimately the churches with them. It is a weighty price to pay for academic recognition."  (The Treason of the Intellectuals, R.C. Sproul, Evangelical Lap Dogs, Table Talk, Nov. 2002, p. 6)

The Fall of Man

Like pre-flood antediluvians and post-flood pagans, modern progressives and their evolutionary theist counterparts have fallen into depravity, stupidity, idolatry, nature worship and evil. 

Early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and a haughty spirit preceded man's fall. A haughty spirit led them to disregard the supernatural things of the Holy God and seek in preference lower things here in the natural dimension.

The truth as to this evil said Athanasius,

"...is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul "which, materialized by forgetting God," and engrossed in lower things (i.e. matter, chemicals, DNA) "makes them into gods" and thereby "descends into a hopeless depth of delusion and superstition" whereby "they ceased to think that anything existed beyond what is seen (naturalism).... so turning away and forgetting that she was made in the image of the good God...sees no longer the Word after whose likeness she is made...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Ideas have consequences. For Mormonism – as with evolutionary theism and its secular pagan and pantheist permutations – the predisposing corruption resides in foundational ideations. Thus in the rejection of the supernatural Triune God and His Genesis account of creation ex nihilo resides the inability to account for the origin of life, of man's soul/spirit, immutable truth, moral absolutes, fixed meaning, and the true causes of evil in this world of suffering. (Psalm 115:4-8) With the rejection of the Incarnation comes the inability to logically account for and defend the two sexes and traditional marriage. Thus the fate of Mormonism together with evolutionary theism and its’ evolutionary counterparts is to not only fall into relativism, depravity, stupidity, confusion, superstition, chaos and idolatry but to give way to the demands of unrestrained libido – including the use of children for the sexual gratification of adults. And these are the crimes against nature, said Augustine, which are the crimes,

"of the men of Sodom (and if) all nations in the world committed them they would all stand guilty of the same crime against the Law of God, which did not design men so that they should use each other this way." (Confessions of St. Augustine, p. 49)

Jeremiah 51:57---When the Wicked are Given Over to Madness

For over eighty-five years, America has been incrementally conquered by the same madness and murder inducing demon of hatred and violence that earlier took over Russia, China, Germany, and Italy.

This demon is embodied in "scientifically enlightened" rank and file evolutionary humanists,  America's ruling class, and their  masters---Western transnational planetary citizens.  The last two groups are deeply infected by many delusions.  One is that America's true source of evil is always on the Right. A second is 'scientific' naturalism, a form of magic thinking that imagines the universe made itself and man invented God.  Cosmic evolution is an invention of imagination, an invention more terrible and more destructive than has ever been presented in the ordinary course of nature. It imagines that life somehow emerged out of nonlife, that man is not created in the spiritual image of God the Father but is rather a soulless, mindless ex-ape of evolution. It imagines there is no sin, no hell, no Divine Judgement, thus Leftist Naturalists and their allies are free to be evil.

The evil creed of Leftist Naturalists – 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)

The Mad-Hatter idea of a racial/gender hierarchy is fully incorporated within Sweden's intersectional feminist government. What is "intersectional" feminism?

"It is a species of feminism that, in accordance with the relatively new academic concept of "intersectionality," accepts a hierarchy whereby other "victim groups" -- such as "people of color" and Muslims -- are higher up on the grievance ladder than women, and whereby women who belong to those other groups enjoy an even more exalted status as victims than white female Christians or Jews." (Feminism, Swedish Style, Bruce Bawer, Gatestone Institute, Feb. 8, 2018)

Having rejected the Triune God and Biblically grounded religious heritage of our civilization, naturalists embrace instead an ancient order of pagan and pantheist beliefs of which Babylon, Communism, Socialism, and Luciferianism are logical expressions.  A Godless new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the still remaining remnants of Western European and America's Christian-based culture and all who defend it must be completely destroyed.

And what is Communism?  Using the former Soviet Union as an example, early Conservative intellectual Frank Meyers describes it as the "state form taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world."    Communism or neo-pagan scientific naturalism is "the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  It is pagan scientism, of which communism is the culminating "hubris of the Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation.  It is scientism gone political." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

"... since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, He gave them up to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done."  Romans 1:28 "I will make her princes and her wise men drunk, Her governors, her prefects and her mighty men, That they may sleep a perpetual sleep and not wake up," Declares the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.  (Jeremiah 51:57)

Those who are destitute of a love for truth and within whom apostasy and the mystery of lawlessness have commenced the Lord of Hosts rejects as godless, wicked, and worthless.  Thus He takes from them their power of discerning the true from the false so that with their  consciences depraved they fall into greater madness and wickedness.  In this way their wickedness is punished by wickedness. Upon such people the wrath of God rests (Romans 1:18). 

America's wicked 'elite' ruling class' and its global masters hate Jehovah God and are obviously mad (moral imbeciles), wicked, and debauched. 

Genesis 1: 1 "In the beginning God created... "   

"You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you." Nehemiah 9:6

"Man is said to be made in God's image," said St. Thomas Aquinas, "insofar as the image implies an intelligent being endowed with free-will and self-movement." (Fallen Images, Robert P. George, Touchstone, May 2003, p. 15)

The biblical view of man is that while made in God's spiritual image, in contrast to God, man is fallen. His intellect, will and passions are disordered by sin even though sin does not obliterate his God-like powers of free will and intellect. Thus humans can, by God's grace, understand what is good and choose to do what is good, or turn away from God and willfully choose to do what they know to be wrong.

Most research analysts of the new paganism and its destructive "isms" and "magic science" agree that it emerged out of the Renaissance and that these spiritual poisons were undergirded and fueled by a willful rebellion against God, the fallen human condition and mortality.

By the time of the Enlightenment, God-haters realized that their only avenue of escape was by way of a delusional integration with nature. Lester Crocker explains:

"There existed in the eighteenth century a widespread desire to equate the moral with the physical world..." What was desired above all was "total integration of man in nature, with refusal of any transcendence, even though it was admitted that (being God's image-bearer) gave him certain special abilities and ways of thinking. The important thing, as La Mettrie, d'Holbach and others made clear, is that he is submitted to the same laws; everything is response to need — mechanically... like a tree or a machine. Man merely carries out natural forces — without any freedom whatsoever — in all he does, whether he loves or hates, helps or hurts, gives life or takes it." (Monsters from the Id, E. Michael Jones, pp. 5, 7)

In other words, from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment through to our own day, arrogant, defiant rebels have been saying to Jehovah, "you are not our Father."  Like a dog returns to its vomit they returned to the folly of pagan evolutionary idolatry, thus the 'best and brightest' say are "descended from a hairy quadruped, furnished with a tail and pointed ears," a species of monkey which in turn descended "through a long line of diversified forms" going back to something like the larvae of sea squirts (1) and some of us, the most superior, are evolving to the "omega point" of union with the divine monistic Void or perhaps Quantum Void.(2)

Early Church Father Athanasius explains both the human condition and the fatal consequences of rejecting our Creator in favor of idolatry (self-worship) and nature worship of matter, creative energy (evolution), water, fire, and air.

God has made man, and willed that he should abide in incorruption; but men, having despised and rejected the higher things and authority of God, devised and contrived evil for themselves, thereby receiving,

"... the condemnation of death with which they had been threatened; and from thenceforth no longer remained as they were made, but were being corrupted according to their devices; and death had the mastery over them as king." (On the Incarnation of the Word, Athanasius)

In willfully falling away from the knowledge of God and transgressing against His commandments, God gives them over to their wickedness and to madness.  This action  effectively turns them back to their natural state,

"....so that just as they have had their being out of nothing, so also, as might be expected, they might look for corruption into nothing in the course of time. For if, out of a former normal state of non-existence they were called into being by the Presence and loving-kindness of the Word, it followed naturally that when men were bereft of the knowledge of God and were turned back to what was not (for what is evil is not, but what is good is), they should, since they derive their being from God who IS, be everlastingly bereft even of being; in other words, that they should be disintegrated and abide in death and corruption. For man is by nature mortal, inasmuch as he is made out of what is not; but by reason of his likeness to Him that is (and if he still preserved this likeness by keeping Him in his knowledge) he would stay his natural corruption, and remain incorrupt; as Wisdom 6:18 says: “The taking heed to His laws is the assurance of immortality" but being incorrupt, he would live henceforth as God, to which I suppose the divine Scripture refers, when it says: “I have said you are gods, and you are all sons of the most Highest; but you die like men, and fall as one of the princes.”

The fool who has said in his heart, there is no God (Psalm 14:1), has effectively said to God, the Creator and sustainer of life and being, "you are not my Father." The rejection of Father God is for soul and its citadel, spirit (intellect, will) to disintegrate into the nothingness from which men have been called, thereby abiding increasingly in madness, death and corruption even though he or she still lives and is mainly blind to the effects of disintegration and madness.   In his Lord of the Rings trilogy, Tolkien ingeniously makes 'visible' the invisible process of disintegration and resulting madness with Grimma Wormtongue, Gollum and other decayed and decaying characters.

Our Lord and Savior, the Living Word Who spoke all things into existence from nothing has said:

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

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

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

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

The Progressive Myth: Socialism, Psychopaths, Mean Nasty Girls, and America's Tyranny of Evil

"avoid irreverent babble (delusions and empty philosophizing of those who reject Jehovah), for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness"  (2 Tim. 2:16) "Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them." (Ephesians 5:11)

 Leftist Progressive Utopianism's most enduring myth is the delusional and self-refuting multi-faceted notion that man is born good despite that he is the uncreated product of revamped and revitalized Babylonian evolutionary idolatry. (Ezekiel 14:3) Even more incredible, man is somehow the slave of the Holy Triune God as well as of Biblically grounded Western tradition and culture even though Leftists claim He does not exist and cruelly ridicule those who worship Him as Lord and Savior.  Yet according to these babblers if human-apes of evolution are liberated from their slavery to the nonexistent God and Western tradition and culture, their innate goodness will fully manifest itself.

In support of Leftism's most enduring delusion are three more. First, enlightened yet spiritually dead Leftist Progressive Utopians and the City of Man they are building are evolving ever upward toward apotheosis and a communist or socialist paradise on earth, a 'new' Babylon.  Second, science, technology, and the divine life-making energy (serpent power) known as evolution have brought the enlightened yet morally depraved, deeply deluded 'Best and Brightest' to the brink of ending all suffering, in particular, death itself. And finally, enlightened reprobates are gaining control over evil.  Reality says otherwise:

"Communism has been tried for more than 100 years by hundreds of millions of people, and the results are always the same: Its fruits are death, destruction, and despair. Its leading figures were cynical and sly men who masked their hatred of humanity with high-sounding words. By any measure, they were as dark and sinister as could be."  (Dead End of Communism, The Epoch Times)

For more than 100 years, Leftist Progressive Utopianism has been a spellbinding force for modern Gnostic God-and-human hating power and vengeance seekers, the criminally minded, wishful thinkers, the emotionally unstable; rebellious, resentful, ungrateful youth and mean, nasty, empyty-headed girls and queen bees:

"This weekend women across the country are dusting off their pussyhats for another march for women...These self-proclaimed defenders of women’s rights hold on to their bottomless pit of hatred against the president despite their own leaders being exposed as exploiters of other women. These empty headed mean girls of every age bully conservative women and emasculate all the men in their lives then march to whine about their oppression. All the while ignoring honor violence, sexual slavery, female genital mutilation, human trafficking and real oppression of women. These spoiled angry, unhappy and uninformed ladies of luxury, who wear pink hats and invisible blinders, epitomize the failure of the feminist movement."  (Mean Girls, Nasty Women & Queen Bees, Dawn Perlmutter, Frontpage Magazine, Jan. 19, 2018). 

C.E.M Joad, a 20th century philosopher had been among the ranks of the spellbound and spent most of his life embracing Progressive myths and loudly proclaiming his distate for the supernatural Triune God.  However, the catastrophic events, genocide and other monstrous crimes against humanity committed by Marxist Communists and National Socialists empowered by Western Progressive financiers during the 20th century finally wore down Joad's delusional optimism:

"...the power that...Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or communist power but...the power of the international financial coterie." (Dr. Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, p. 954)

As he witnessed so-called "enlightened" Progressives, Marxists and other like-minded disciples of depravity make the same stupid, discouraging and outright evil choices over and over again, commit the same hideous crimes against humanity over and over again, and rationalize their evil wickedness over and over again, Joad was forced to conclude that his faith in man was wrong and Progressive myths rendered utterly implausible by the catastrophic and genocidal events of the twentieth century.  

Joad concluded that it is because Progressives and their like-minded counterparts rejected,

".... the doctrine of original sin that we on the Left were always being disappointed; disappointed by the refusal of people to be reasonable, by the subservience of intellect to emotion, by the failure of true Socialism to arrive, by the behavior of nations and politicians, by the masses' preference for Hollywood to Shakespeare and for Mr. Sinatra to Beethoven; above all, by the recurrent fact of war."  (The Deadliest Monster, J.F. Baldwin, p. 97)

Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957), renowned English crime writer, poet, playwright, essayist, translator and Christian humanist concurs:

"The people who are most discouraged and made despondent by the barbarity and stupidity of human behavior are those who think highly of homo sapiens....and who still cling to an optimistic belief in the civilizing influence of progress and enlightenment." (ibid, p. 96)

 Spellbinding Progress and enlightenment myths were shown to be dangerous delusions In 1926 when Governor Theodore Christianson of Minnesota established the Minnesota Crime Commission to study crime and evaluate its causes. The commission eventually concluded that criminal tendencies were not the result of slavery to the Triune God and Western civilization as the Progressives claimed. In essence the Commissions findings agreed with Joad's conclusions upon his loss of faith in the Progressive myth.  The Commission offered the following brutal observation:

"Every baby starts life as a little savage. He is completely selfish and self-centered. He wants what he wants when he wants it: his bottle, his mother's attention, his playmates toys...or whatever. Deny him these and he seethes with rage and aggressiveness which could be murderous were he not so helpless. He's dirty; he has no morals, no knowledge, no developed skills. This means that all children, not just certain children, but all children, are born delinquent. If permitted to continue in their self-centered world of infancy, given free rein to their impulsive actions to satisfy each want, every child would grow up a criminal, a thief, a killer, a rapist."

The completely selfish and self-centered human can grow up to be far more evil than common delinquents.  Their narcissism can become so inflated, their conscience so depraved and hardened and their will so given to evil that the Triune God gives them over to reprobate minds (Romans 1: 18-28).  In clinical terms, they can become psychopaths.

Martha Stout has worked extensively with victims of psychopaths, and describes psychopaths as having no feelings of guilt or remorse no matter what they do.  Psychopaths have no,

"...  limiting sense of concern for the well-being of strangers, friends, or--family. Imagine no struggles with shame---no matter what kind of selfish, lazy, harmful, or immoral action (they take)."  The concept of responsibility is unknown to them, "except as a burden others seem to accept---like gullible fools."   They are not held back from any of their "desires by guilt or shame, and... are never confronted by others for (their) cold-bloodedness....(They) are completely free of internal restraints, and...unhampered liberty to do just as (they) please, with no pangs of conscience..." (Political Ponerology, Andrew M. Lobaczewski, pp. 10-11)

Psychopathy: What Is It?

John Ray, M.A., Ph.D, summarizes some of the central characteristics of psychopathy as follows:

"He is not obviously 'mad.' he is often highly intelligent; he is unmoved by brutality (except to enjoy perpetrating it); he has no moral or ethical standards; he is deeply (but discreetly) in love with himself (narcissism) so secretly despises others and thinks they are fit only to be dominated and exploited by him and those like him; he is a great manipulator who loves getting others to do his bidding by deception or otherwise; he is the master of the lie and the false pretense but sees no reason to be consistent from occasion to occasion; he will say anything to gain momentary praise or admiration; his only really strongly felt emotions seem to be hate and contempt and he is particularly enraged by those who have what he wants and will be totally unscrupulous in trying to seize what others have for himself.  But above all, the psychopath does not seem to be able to tell right from wrong and, as a result, does sometimes commit or connive at murders and other heinous crimes with what seems to be a clear conscience."   (Leftism As Psychopathy, John Ray)

Because psychopaths hold other people in contempt and are without remorse they freely manipulate and use their intended victims for purposes of self-gratification. Other common characteristics include:  moral relativism (no absolutes), an overwhelming sense of entitlement, parasitism, psychological and physical bullying, casual cruelty, pleasure at inflicting pain (sadism), insensitivity, dishonesty, pathological lying, aggression, impulsiveness, promiscuity, and irresponsibility .

Psychpaths as  Omnipotent 'gods'

Omnipotence, in the case of Western "scientific and evolutionary" empowered psychopaths comes from imagining they possess power over the Holy Trinity and His Revealed Word so as to take for themselves the power of the Lord's own spoken Word.  Leftist delusions are then,

" interpreted and promulgated by the left in a quasi-divine manner as the secular word of God, which is why it is inimical to counter-argument and will not tolerate dissent.  It has proliferated in various forms and guises, theories and practices, right up to the present moment."  (The Left Will Always Be With Us, David Solway, American Thinker, Jan. 2018)

In this way they give their own words the active force of the Triune Gods creative words thereby allowing  them to unweave and refashion creation, reinvent human beings, paganize Scripture, and creatively destroy the family and society as desired.   Furthermore, they can decide who lives and who must die, what we may have or not have, how many children we may have, what we are allowed to know and not know and who the Official State Enemies are. This is a psychopaths power trip.   

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

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

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

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

Among well-known psychopaths of the 20th century are  Pol Pot, Hitler, Beatrice Webb, Margaret Sanger, Lenin and Stalin.  Kaganovitch, Stalin's brother-in-law and closest collaborator described Stalin as no longer human:

"Even when he exhibited some emotions, they all did not seem to belong to him. They were as false as the scale on top of armor...He was not human at all..." (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 53)

Milovan Djilas, Communist leader of Yugoslavia, perceptively described the mesmerizing satanic energy emanating from the 'no longer human' Stalin:

"Was it not so that the demonic power and energy of Stalin consisted in this, that he made the (Communist) movement and every person in it pass to a state of confusion and stupefaction, thus creating and ensuring his reign of fear..." (ibid, p. 54)

According to Ray, prominent psychopaths of our own time include the average left-wing academic, George Galloway, Castro, John Kerry, Bill Clinton and  Barack Obama--- prominent members of America's Progressive Ruling Class who,   

"...prays to themselves as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image..." ("The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It" Angelo M. Codevilla p. xix)

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

A tyranny of evil has spread itself over and across our country like a vast dark wing and we cannot understand its' manifestations---its' seething hatred of God and America's middle class---particularly white Conservatives and Christians---or its' treachery, cruelty, sadism, pathological lying, obscenity, perversity, blasphemy, and deliberate corruption of our children unless we return to our Heavenly Father and the Biblical view of man:

"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insight we have into the nature of man and of the crisis we find ourselves in..." (John Hallowell, The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George Nash, p. 53)

Man is not born good, as Leftist Progressives claim. Nor are man and society 'evolving' to some higher, more godlike spiritual state. This is pure fantasy from the pits of hell.. 

Without exception, evil cuts through the heart of every man and woman, thus no concept gives "deeper insight into the enigma that is man" than original sin. Evil is not just a "bad dream"  or "an accident of history." Nor is it the "creation of a few antisocial men" but rather a "subtle, protean force," and original sin is a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing." (ibid)

As a people, and more importantly as Christians who should know better, we have allowed ourselves to forget this---to our own and our children's peril.

Making Sin-Addicted Sub-Human Slaves: The Real Purpose of Modern Education in a Scientific Dictatorship

Hollywood, media, music industry, and political left-right Humanists are incapable of suspending their will-to-power, arrogant egotism fueled by an erroneous sense of 'moral' and 'intellectual' superiority or their scientism and evolution idolatry and a priori hatred of and contempt for President Trump, faithful Christians and Jews, middle class Conservatives, and the Christian-grounded America of its founding.  Thus they are incapable of objectively considering the possibility that the ideology they religiously affirm is an unholy mixture of fantasy, scientism, lies, and evil and that a Scientific Dictatorship (NWO)--a global conspiracy run by super wealthy Western Luciferians and other pagan and pantheist God-haters has been under construction since before the Bolshevik Revolution:

"Spirit cooking.Occult imagery outside meetings of the most powerful people in the world.  Bizarre rituals held at globally important events.  What perverted ideology animates those who control our global destiny?"

"Global insider Theodore Roosevelt Malloch, who has worked at the highest levels on Wall Street, at the United Nations, at elite universities like Yale and Oxford and served on the executive board of the World Economics Forum has a disturbing answer. It’s “Luciferianism.”  The E.U. is part, of course, of the globalist empire, the New World Order, and I think many of its origins are in fact quite evil…”  “And I think that we should talk about that.”   (Top Insider Exposes Luciferian Origin of Globalist Empire, WND, 12/25/2017)

Rather than attempt to reason with snobby, close-minded Humanists that this evil conspiracy exists and that they are its' egotistic and thought-controlled dupes, perhaps Bertrand Russell will succeed in this endeavor in his seminal work, 'The Impact Of Science On Society '(1952).  Russell is one of the past key players in and architects of the global Scientific Dictatorship. 

Scientific Techniques Behind ‘Murder of God,’ Destruction of Free Will and imago Dei

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)

Under the Dictatorship, all people---having been reduced by evolutionary thinking to something on a par with worms and apes--- are collectivized sub-human slaves of the State.  Since it is the population of sub-humans and their use of earths resources that are the cause of 'global change' absolute control over everything in society from resources such as food, water, and fossil fuel to the wills, thought-life, and emotions of sub-human slaves falls to a totalitarian mystical god-State that will annihilate the old order and enslave the worlds sub-human population in order to save planet earth.  In the absence of the Holy Triune God, God-hating Luciferians can---by the mere power of their wills---re-order both mankind and the entire world:

"There is no God and no soul. 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."  (John Dewey, The Unseen Hand, A. Ralph Epperson, p. 298, 378-379)

 God-haters ranging from Hegel to Marx, Darwin, Freud, Nietzsche, Dewey, Bertrand Russell and contemporary Luciferians, among others,  have 'murdered' the Holy Triune God, deconstructed imago Dei, and taught lies as truth. Eric Voegelin comments:

"....the order of being (was) obliterated (and reinterpreted) as essentially under man's control." Taking control "requires the decapitation of being — the murder of God." (Eric Voegelin, "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," p. xv)

Separating 'Elites' from Sub-Humans

The Nazis, said Russell, were more advanced scientifically than the Communist rulers of Russia and if they had survived, would probably have soon taken to "scientific breeding" (abortion, euthanasia, eugenics) to separate elites from cannon fodder and other slaves:

" Any nation which adopts this practice will, within a generation, secure great military advantages. The system, one may surmise, will be something like this: except possibly in the governing aristocracy, all but 5 per cent of males and 30 per cent of females will be sterilised. The 30 per cent of females will be expected to spend the years from eighteen to forty in reproduction, in order to secure adequate cannon fodder. As a rule, artificial insemination will be preferred to the natural method ..."

Through selective breeding and dumbing-down of slave material, the "congenital differences between rulers and ruled" will gradually evolve until they become almost different species, making a revolt of stupefied slaves,

"...as unthinkable as an organised insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton." (pp. 49-50)

Russell does not pretend that birth control and abortion are the only ways in which the population of slaves can be kept from increasing:

"There are others, which, one must suppose, opponents of birth control would prefer. War, as I remarked a moment ago, has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. There would be nothing in this to offend the consciences of the devout or to restrain the ambitions of nationalists. The state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but what of that? Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people’s. However, I am wandering from the question of stability, to which I must return." (pp. 103-104)

There are three ways of securing a stable (sustainable) society as regards the slave population:

" The first is that of birth control, the second that of infanticide or really destructive wars, and the third that of general misery except for a powerful minority. All these methods have been practiced: the first, for example, by the Australian aborigines; the second by the Aztecs, the Spartans, and the rulers of Plato’s Republic; the third in the world as some Western internationalists hope to make it and in Soviet Russia ... Of these three, only birth control avoids extreme cruelty and unhappiness for the majority of human beings. Meanwhile, so long as there is not a single world government there will be competition for power among the different nations. And as increase of population brings the threat of famine, national power will become more and more obviously the only way of avoiding starvation."

To deal with the problem of increasing slave population and decreasing food supplies it will be necessary to find ways of controlling procreation:

" If this is to be done otherwise than by wars, pestilence, and famines, it will demand a powerful international authority. This authority should deal out the world’s food to the various nations in proportion to their population at the time of the establishment of the authority. If any nation subsequently increased its population it should not on that account receive any more food. The motive for not increasing population would therefore be very compelling. What method of preventing an increase might be preferred should be left to each state to decide.”

One primary method is the sexualization and homosexualization of the slave population, a goal backed by Americas' State Department and the former Obama administration:

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

There is nothing wrong with slavery said Russell.  After all, most civilized and semi-civilized countries known to history had a large class of slaves or serfs completely subordinate to their owners and there is nothing in human nature that makes the persistence of such a system impossible:

" And the whole development of scientific technique has made it easier than it used to be to maintain a despotic rule of a minority. When the government controls the distribution of food, its power is absolute so long as they can count on the police and the armed forces. And their loyalty can be secured by giving them some of the privileges of the governing class. I do not see how any internal movement of revolt can ever bring freedom to the oppressed in a modern scientific dictatorship." (p. 54)

Scientific Techniques for the Making of Slaves

The Scientific Dictatorship controls and shapes the wills, thoughts, and emotions of its sub-human slaves through various thought, emotion and behavior modification techniques.   Among these are the rationalization of evil as something 'progressive’ and ‘forward-thinking,’ unfettered vice as freedom of expression, nihilist philosophies solidified in mass delusion, and modern education.  According to Russell, the real purpose of education is collective mass psychology for destruction of free will:

" Fitche laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished ... Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible ..."

Therefore said Russell, I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology:

" Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called 'education.' Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part ... It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment."   (pp. 40-41)

Russell predicted that 'education' would make great strides when taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship:

"The social psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results will soon be arrived at. First, that the influence of home is obstructive. Second, that not much can be done unless indoctrination begins before the age of ten. Third, that verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective. Fourth, that the opinion that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity. But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would cost to make them believe it is dark gray."

Although the science of thought and behavior modification will be diligently studied and practiced, said Russell, it will be rigidly confined to, hence the secret gnosis of the governing class:

" The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen."

For more than seventy years the creation of sub-human slaves and 'cannon fodder' has been one of the primary goals of global Luciferian socialists. Toward the end of WW II conservative Anthony Harrigan warned that America’s degenerate ruling class was forcing the acceptance of pornography, 

"as medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion...Though the life of the country is basically decent, Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class which...is conducting us to ruin." This class of degenerates seeks to raise up a "liberal-bred barbarian" motivated by a "destructive impulse" unchecked by "traditional values and restraints," in order to destroy America from within." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash,, pp. 39-40)

Todays' Humanist-bred barbarians are the product of an ongoing, thoroughly evil program of psychological manipulation previously utilized by Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin and the Communists after they seized control of Orthodox Christian Russia and put into practice long-term plans to abolish on a vast scale every vestige of belief in and commitment to the God of Revelation, family, morality, private property, and other signs of the capitalist petite Bourgeoisie.

The success of this programmatic evil is on display today in mindless, hysterical hatred of Pres. Trump and his supporters, in dangerous calls for white genocide and the murder of police, and in other dangerous, violent and destructive acts committed mainly by insane Humanist barbarians.  

According to longtime Hollywood insider and ex-liberal Evan Sayet the very purpose of the modern liberal is the total destruction of everything that God, Christianity, true science, and Western civilization has ever created:

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

Stealthily underlying and fueling the mindless hate and destructive, murderous impulses driving degenerate Humanist fanatics is the revolt of Luciferian globalists against the Holy Triune God and their insatiable craving for a Godless socialist vision, an impossible sinners paradise:

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

  In “Liberal Treason Explained: ‘The Kindergarten of Evil,’ conservative writer Jim O’Neill writes that John Lennon’s song “Imagine” nicely sums up the Humanist and Luciferian fantasy:

“…..no heaven, no hell, no religion, no countries, no possessions, ‘nothing to kill or die for’ (no right, no wrong), no past, no future (all the people living for today’). (O’Neill, Canada Free Press, Oct. 29, 2012)

Progressive Yearnings of Luciferians

The Lord's Old Testament prophet Isaiah sees the Evil One--the devil who was Lucifer before his fall-- standing behind the Kings of his time.  Today these Kings are globalist Luciferians.  Isaiah gives five goals that Lucifer staked out for himself.  Each one begins with 'I will,' meaning that whatever the sheer power of will wants it can achieve.  The five goals of the devil, with some modifications, are now the progressive yearnings of Luciferians:

"I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of the assembly in the recesses of the north.  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High."  (Isaiah 14:13-14)

A major modification to Lucifer’s goals is that Luciferians do not want to make themselves like the Holy Triune God but like the Evil One.  This is because they hate the Lord, thus the path they have chosen is Satanic revolt, or war against the Trinity...the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which in Bakunin's words are the "cursed and fatal principle of authority.” Thus Luciferians proclaim the reign of nothingness, though a nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of evil personified...the evil Lord of this world.  Thus the sentiment of the revolt 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)

But the Lord laughs at Luciferians because He sees their day is coming.(Psalm 37:13)  Just as the devil is already defeated, so are impenitent Luciferians and their sub-human followers.  All of them are already defeated and when the Evil One is cast into the lake of fire and brimstone all of his seed--humans bearing the mark of the beast (Rev. 13:16; 16:2), will also be cast into the lake on the final day of judgment:

"Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.”  Jeremiah 30:23, KJB

The fact of God's Wrath upon the impenitent children of disobedience is clearly revealed in the Scriptures:

 "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; but he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him" (John 3:36). "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men" (Rom. 1:18). "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience" (Eph. 5:6).”  (The Wrath of God,  Arthur W. Pink

2 Thessalonians 2: When the Day of Grace is Over

In Hosea 4:17 it is recorded that our Lord said, “Ephraim is joined unto idols, let him alone.”

 There comes a time, said John MacArthur, when the Lord abandons men.  He lets pride-hardened idolaters go to the consequences of their own sinful choices--- will-to-power, useless ideologies, relativism, anti-creation evolutionary cosmogonies, scientism as an instrument of man's will, occultism, spiritism, transgender as valid 'gender,' and pederasty, sodomy, and lesbianism as alternative lifestyles. The pride-hardened have refused to accept His counsel.  They spurned all His reproof, as Proverbs says, so now they will eat the rotten fruit of their own choices.

 Like the Pharisees they will have to be satisfied with the useless choices, ideologies, and occult devices they prefer, thus Jesus seals their doom with the most terrifying words of all,

“Let them alone.”  Matthew 15:14 (A Nation Abandoned by God, John MacArthur)

It’s a frightening thing to think about that. It's frightening to think that you might be abandoned by the Holy God, that the opportunity for salvation is past, that the day of grace is over, that at the same time grace is withdrawn the gates of hell swing open and delusion envelopes and darkens the minds of the abandoned:

 "....and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness." 2 Thessalonians 2: 10-12 

  Let them alone, for in righteous judgment the Lord has sent them strong delusion that by their wicked actions the wicked will fall into greater wickedness that their sin be punished by sin.  Thus the judgment of the Lord is that they should believe lies.   Being destitute of the love of the truth, they are necessarily led to believe lies.  While their minds are open to all manner of falsehood, stupidity, depravity and delusion they are tightly sealed within an impenetrable bubble closed to the Light of Truth.    So "Let them alone, they are blind leaders of the blind."

Revelation 2:7

In "Papacy in Collapse: "The Crisis of the Bergoglio Party (which will leave the Church devastated) has begun" we read:

"It’s beginning to look as if Jorge Bergoglio is the man who inherited the papacy and then broke it (Bergoglio) has caused the Church to collapse into doctrinal confusion which is much, more serious than any financial scandal. Is it the fault of obscure opponents? Nonsense. Only in dictatorships are the failures of the regime justified with presumed sabotages from its opponents. The Argentine Pope has said many times that he wanted chaos as he considered it creative: he should be pleased now." (rorate-caeli.blogspot, 2015/11)

Years ago, long-time Vatican observer Malachi Martin (1921-1999) described a situation in which the Curia is divided between 'progressives' and 'traditionalists;' between adherents of change, science, evolutionary conceptions, abortion, women and 'gay' priests, and openness to nature religions and ideologies and those who oppose such an agenda. According to Martin, 'progressives' hold all the important positions of power, and so are able to bring about a major revolution that if unchecked will constitute,

"....one of the most spectacular expressions of apostasy in the modern era, dressed up in all the traditional robes and much of the terminology of Christianity but denying its essence." (Jesus and the Den of Thieves, SCP Journal, Dr. Peter Jones, p. 17)

Chaos, confusion and devastating crisis of faith are not unique to the Roman Catholic Church.  This toxic virus infects the entire denominational spectrum of Christ's Church.  

Though written for a Roman Catholic audience, James Hitchcock's powerful analytical piece "Off The Rails: Was Vatican II Hijacked?" contains much that parallels the crisis of faith and spread of apostasy within the body of the Protestant Evangelical church. (Crisis Magazine, June, 2014)

For instance, among unworkable church-growth tactics employed by the Roman Catholic Church  is the strategy of countering secularism by accommodating the Church to the secular culture and its' idolization of science and evolution.  Since much of the Evangelical church employs the very same strategy, the devilish spirit of apostasy has for many years been entering through the open door of accommodation. Decades ago Francis Schaeffer perceived this devilish spirit already at work amongst evangelical Protestants. In "The Great Evangelical Disaster" he wrote:

"Accommodation, accommodation. How the mindset of accommodation grows and expands...For the evangelical accommodation to the world of our age represents the removal of the last barrier against the breakdown of our culture. And with the final removal of this barrier will come social chaos and the rise of authoritarianism in some form to restore order." (p. 401)

Schaeffer rebuked evangelical compromisers, warning them that to accommodate,

"...to the world spirit about us in our age is the most gross form of worldliness in the proper definition of the word." (ibid)

By the logic of accommodation, promoters inevitably end up negating the right of the Christian Church to remain faithful to its authentic identity, and this ends in "a moral obligation to repudiate as much of that identity as possible" (Hitchcock).

The dogged pursuit of this scheme eventually forces older saints (traditionalists) out of the church in favor of younger, culturally-saturated, spiritually and morally immature members. These actions give birth to Christless Christianity and a crude form of democracy,

"doctrine as determined by opinion polls. The liturgy (ceases) to be a divine action and (becomes) a communal celebration... with every moral absolute treated as merely another wall needing to be breached" (resulting in a demand) "for liberation from all restraint on personal freedom." (Hitchcock)

A further consequence is that the theological frontier,

".... is nothing less than the stark question of whether there is indeed only one God and Jesus is His only-begotten Son." (ibid)

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

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

Thus we are witnessing the secularization, paganization and evaporation of orthodox Biblical theism to which must be added rebellion against every vestige of authority, deconstruction of the Genesis account and inversion of history caused by evolutionary thinking, the privatization of truth and,

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

One of the central realities of America's apostasy and moral decay is the dawning of a post-Christian culture now rapidly transitioning into an anti-orthodox Christian society with an anti-orthodox Christian consciousness that is already well developed. Tolerance has been perverted into a radical secularism that is wholly open to worldly bread---'gay' marriage and sodomy, abortion as legalized 'choice,' perverse sex education for children, centering prayer and other occult practices, Baphomet, Satanism, sorcery, Wicca, magic, nudity, pornography and Decadence Festivals but intolerant of God's Word, His Authority, Moral Law and sexual ethics:

"But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."  Matthew 4:4

The post-Christian mind is closed to the eternally unchanging transcendent truths of the Holy Trinity but completely open to the idea that truth has no objective or absolute basis whatsoever. Indeed, the postmodern mind has a fanatical dedication to moral relativism (nihilism), love of self, pleasure, and its own personal Jesus idols and gods, be they evolution-gods, big bang-gods, mystical passion-gods, Omegas, Yogic Christs, Christ-consciousness, gods-of-reason or some other idol.

We are living in an age of deep and undeniable breakdown, an age of darkness and spreading evil where moral constraints and restraints have been thrown off in the name of a liberation that does not emancipate but enslaves, does not save but condemns. Our increasingly bizarre age is marked by a fundamental failure of conviction in unison with deepening corruption and lawlessness characterized by pathological lying, hard-edged egotism and warped, distorted personalities.

Something is happening to the consciousness of this age. A counter-conversion of consciousness is closing the soul to Jesus Christ while opening it to powers of darkness. If we listen closely said Albert Mohler, we can hear something,

"....like the closing of a steel door – a solemn, cataclysmic slamming of a door." (p. 166)

But for all who have ears to hear, "let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God."  Revelation 2:7

Beginning of the Aeon of Horus, Reign of God-Men, and End of the Christian God

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites...We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end...The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?”   O’Brien, in 1984, by George Orwell

The heart of the Party or Big Brother is the pagan magician, a demonized man-god who has acquired powerful psychic powers and gnosis through actualization of the cosmic Divine Energy or Force within his own brain. (Dan. 11:38) Thus he creates his own world and meaning in every living moment out of his own divine consciousness.   In other words, since the substance of God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos including the unconscious mind of man, then by means of self-induced trance states, brain-altering drugs, transcendental meditation and other Magic Ways, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls matter because he controls mind. The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man.

This way of thinking is captured by Orwell in his book, "Nineteen Eighty-Four" in which negation of the physical world is an integral part of the social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his tyrannical Party.  At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that in the end the Party would announce that two plus two made five and,

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

God-men are legion today. They have successfully initiated a devastating assault upon the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the whole body of the Christian church and by extension, upon Western and American society in ways that to previous generations would have seemed unthinkable.   The growing ranks of modern Western and Eastern god-men include notables such Auguste Comte, Nietzsche, Karl Marx, Hitler, sundry Indian god-men (i.e., Rajneesh), Teilhard de Chardin, L. Ron Hubbard and Aleister Crowley.  Each god-man either established a natural religion such as scientific positivism (Comte), an occult spiritual philosophy (Crowley), an anti-supernatural scientific and evolutionary "New Christianity" (Teilhard) or powerful cults that have drawn and continue to draw souls to their doom since demonized god-men are harvesters of souls for the kingdom of the Evil One.  

Aleister Crowley: Founder of Thelema

Thelema is an Eastern influenced occult spiritual philosophy of pantheist monism developed by Crowley, a 20th century British writer, ceremonial magician and Satanist.  Pantheist monism asserts the divine-human link:

 "All is ultimately One.  This doctrine is fundamental to mysticism, both eastern and western.  God, man, and the universe are fundamentally one.  The Creator-creature distinction, so crucial to orthodox Judaism and Christianity, is specifically denied.  The so-called 'spark of divinity' in each man supposedly leads all men back into oneness with God (the Universal Force).... The body, the mind, the soul are one within the physical forces...In each entity there is that portion which is a part of the Universal Force...God is impersonal; only man is truly personal.  This is (a) central theme of monist systems.  Man is the personal agent of the impersonal God."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 207)  
 
Within the system of pagan and pantheist monism, God is an evolutionary Force or Energy to be scientifically managed; a power to be tapped by initiates and enlightened god-men.  This impersonal Force that supposedly drives the universe's evolutionary destiny was referred to centuries ago in the European magical tradition as the divine Mens, or Mind.  It was cosmic in scope and through careful study and practice (occult or magic science) the magician could control and channel its' power.   The ultimate goal was to acquire powerful psychic powers and gnosis through recreation or actualization of the cosmic Mens within the human mind. (1)
 
In the main, Thelema is based upon a spiritual encounter that Crowley and his wife had in Egypt in 1904 with a spirit calling itself Aiwass.  According to Crowley, Aiwass contacted him and dictated a text known as The Book of the Law or Liber AL vel Legis, which outlined the principles of Thelema.
 
The Thelemic pantheon focuses primarily on a trinity of horned deities adapted from ancient Egyptian pantheist monism. The horned deities are the three speakers of The Book of the Law: Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The three speakers predicted that the 20th century would mark the ending of the Christian God and Christian theism and the beginning of the Aeon of Horus, an age of apostasy into pantheist monism, creative destruction, force and fire wrought by demonized god-men and their masses of disciples--- a self-absorbed, destructive generation, the followers of a new ethical code, an anti-morality summed up as, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law."  
 
In "Our Savage God: The Perverse Use of Eastern Thought," R.C. Zaehner, Spalding professor of comparative religion of Oxford, discusses the monistic (collectivist/oneness) goals of Hinduism and Buddhism and how the Satanist Aleister Crowley applied monistic philosophy to his own ends.  Crowley, said Zaehner, belonged to an age-old monistic tradition which saw the Eternal (Supreme Soul, Void, Abyss, Quantum Vacuum) as the ultimate unity in which all opposites were reconciled, including God with man, man with woman, woman with man, good with evil. (2)

Zaehner also discusses Crowley's attainment of Buddhist "enlightenment," the results of which were "revised" by his spirit guide "Aiwass."   Having assisted Crowley to go beyond good and evil, Aiwass now taught him indulgence.   Aiwass, Crowley's "Holy Guardian Angel," taught "him that absolute bliss could only be attained by enjoying the good things of this world to the full---riches, power, and above all sex, the earthly counterpart of the transcendent union of the opposite." (ibid)
 
As a result, Crowley partook of tantric kundalini sex-magic rites ostensibly for "spiritual" ends.  His "Ordo Templi Orientalis" (Order of the Oriental Temple or O.T.O.) became a branch of Western Tantra.  Indeed, Crowley seems to have been the principal agent responsible for introducing the perversion of Eastern sex magic to the West.  In a text entitled "Yoga: Immortality and Freedom," the yoga authority and University of Chicago professor Mircea Eliade discusses the amoral orientation of Tantra:
 
"The tantric texts frequently repeat the saying, "By the same acts that cause some men to burn in hell...the yogin gains his eternal salvation." This...is the foundation stone of the Yoga expounded by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita (XVIII, 17).  "He who has no feeling of egoism, and whose mind is not tainted, even though he kills (all) these people, kills not, is not fettered (by the action)."  "And the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad (V,14, 8) had already said: "One who knows this, although he commits very much evil, consumes it all and becomes clean and pure, ageless and immortal."  (ibid) 
 
 In addition to his spirit-guide Aiwass, another important mentor of Crowley's was Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher who declared the death of the Christian God and called himself the Anti-Christ:
 
"The greatest recent event – that 'God is dead,' that the belief in the Christian God has ceased to be believable – is even now beginning to cast its first shadows over Europe; however, few really understood " what has really happened here, "and what must collapse now that this belief has been undermined – all that was built upon it, leaned on it, grew into it; for example, our whole European morality." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 433) 
 
Nietzsche argued for the nonexistence of the Christian God as follows:
 
"I will now disprove the existence of all gods. If there were gods, how could I bear not to be a god? Consequently, there are no gods." (3)
 
Each major book of Nietzsche's is an attack on the Christian God and Christian faith. The central axis of Nietzsche's philosophy is always the same---he is as centered on Jesus Christ as Augustine was, only he centered on Christ as his enemy. 
 
With "Ecce Homo" Nietzsche willingly embraces lies and dark fantasy while in "The Genealogy of Morals" he claims that Biblical morality was invented by the "weak," meaning the Jews and then the Christians, to weaken the strong. Thus sheep convinced wolves to act like sheep, and this is unnatural, argued the Anti-Christ who embraced delusions such as "‘Whoever must be a creator always annihilates’ (4)
 
Creation and destruction are as inseparable to Aiwass as to Nietzsche's spirit guide Zarathustra: the creator must always destroy. Thus it follows that a new world order is always preceded by the destruction of the old, hated order:

"The man who breaks… tables of values, the breaker, the lawbreaker; …he is the creator."(Nietzsche)
 
One of the central ideas taught by Zarathustra is that since ‘self’ is self-evolved then the disciple must take responsibility for who or what he is andfor creating himself and his own laws. The implication of this idea is that the old ‘self’ must be destroyed in order to make way for the new ‘self’:

You must wish to consume yourself in your own flame: how could you wish to become new unless you had first become ashes!’ (Nietzsche)
 
The aftermath of the destruction of ‘self’ is insanity followed by possession. This is experienced by power yogis when kundalini current finally reaches full voltage with the result that the so-called Soul of the Universe supposedly occupies the body but is in fact an ancient evil spirit possessing the body of the 'god-man:'

"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) 
 
In "Beyond Good and Evil" the Anti-Christ presents his "Master morality," the anti-morality summarized by Crowley as "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." What this means is that since demonized God-hating liars have conceptually "murdered" the Holy Triune God and sealed up heaven, Masters have a natural right to do whatever they please, for everything is permissible. Whatever a Master commands becomes good from the mere fact that the Master wills it:

"Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”   ('Paedophilia is natural and normal for males,' Andrew Gilligan, telegraph.co.uk, Jul 2014)

"The Twilight of the Idols" explores the consequences of the murder of the Christian God. With His death is liberation from the supernatural Mind, Authority and Will that has transcended the mind and will of man who is now god and decrees the death of eternally existing Truth, Moral Absolutes, sin and agape love. With the murder of the Triune God, there will no longer be a heaven for the sheep since all of these "idols" will die now that loveless god-men have murdered the Holy Triune God. (Rev. 4)
 
Who will replace the murdered Triune God? The Superman, the new Master of the Universe. Nietzsche's masterpiece, "Thus Spake Zarathustra," celebrates this new god. Nietzsche called Zarathustra the new anti-Gospel and told the world to "throw away all other books; you have my Zarathustra."

The Anti-Christ
 
Among contemporary intelligentsia and global 'god-men' (trans-humanists and other practitioners of the Magic Way) intent upon ushering in a worldwide Scientific Dictatorship---a sustainable green pagan heaven (hell) on earth created by Masters for Masters--one of the most widely-read and acclaimed thinkers today is Friedrich Nietzsche, the Anti-Christ. Many twentieth century totalitarians were disciples of Nietzsche, including America's Progressive Left and Hitler.
 
In "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," William Shirer recounts Hitler's frequent sojourns to the Nietzsche museum in Weimar. Commenting on Hitler's veneration for Nietzsche, Shirer writes:
 
"There was some ground for this appropriation of Nietzsche as one of the originators of the Nazi Weltanschauung. Had not the philosopher thundered against democracy and parliaments, preached the will to power, praised war and proclaimed the coming of the master race and the superman--and in the most telling aphorisms? (Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, 1959)
 
Though Nietzsche harshly criticized socialism, his evolutionary thinking and monist (collectivist) political and social thoughts also harmonized well with Marxism.
 
In "Nietzsche: A Precursor to Hitler?" researcher Phillip D. Collins writes that in addition to the continuity of pagan political and social thought that pervaded totalitarian socialism, Nietzsche also provided a religious component. The infamous declaration, "God is dead," is but a segue for the introduction of the horned goat-deity Baphomet---a new Babylonian god merged with mystical Eastern pantheism. This god of evolutionary forces has had, and continues to have, numerous manifestations, as is evidenced by the following delineation by W. Warren Wagar:
 
"Nineteenth-and early twentieth-century thought teems with time-bound emergent deities. Scores of thinkers preached some sort of faith in what is potential in time, in place of the traditional Christian and mystical faith in a power outside of time. Hegel's Weltgeist, Comte's Humanite, Spencer's organismic humanity inevitably improving itself by the laws of evolution, Nietzsche's doctrine of superhumanity, the conception of a finite God given currency by J.S. Mill, Hastings Rashdall, and William James, the vitalism of Bergson and Shaw, the emergent evolutionism of Samuel Alexander and Lloyd Morgan, the theories of divine immanence in the liberal movement in Protestant theology, and du Nouy's telefinalism--all are exhibits in evidence of the influence chiefly of evolutionary thinking, both before and after Darwin, in Western intellectual history. The faith of progress itself--especially the idea of progress as built into the evolutionary scheme of things--is in every way the psychological equivalent of religion. (Wagar, 106 -07)"
 
Nietzsche's self-evolved Superman was but one more link in an ideational chain connecting revolutionaries such as Hegel, Comte, Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Crowley, and contemporary New World Order Masters of the Universe. The central theme is a pagan and pantheist religious faith in humanity's evolutionary ascent towards godhood. Collins writes that this is by no means new:
 
"This doctrine of transformism dates back nearly 6,000 years, finding its crucible in Mesopotamia. It was the religious doctrine promulgated by the ancient Babylonian and Egyptian Mystery cults."

Masonic scholar W.L. Wilmshurst verifies this contention:
 
"This--the evolution of man into superman--was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries" (The Meaning of Masonry. New York: Gramercy, 1980)
 
Nietzsche's Superman represents a pinnacle of biological and spiritual evolution.  At the apex of anti-creation, anti-human evolutionary process, Superman would "overcome" his own fleshly humanity---his mortality, his conscience, human weaknesses and limitations. Just as this post-human condition represented godhood for ancient Mystery Religion initiates, so it represents godhood for Nietzsche, Hitler, Crowley, inner circle Masons, contemporary Transhumanists, Spiritual Transhumanists, occult New Agers and their apostate New Christian counterparts who are even now rewriting the Bible so it will reflect evolutionary and pagan thinking.
 
Inherent in this ancient evolutionary creed are Western pagan, Eastern pantheist, and neo-Gnostic teachings that the fall of soul into the material realm was either inexplicable or explained as punishment. At any rate it was a plunge from being as one with or an aspect of the Divine Substance into the material realm of distinctions, or binary. The fall then is not into sin as a result of disobedience but rather into matter. Salvation means either reabsorption into the Divine Substance or attainment of godhood by way of an evolutionary process controlled by illumined adepts.

Nietzsche’s Transvaluation of Values
 

Nietzsche's version of gnosis resulting from his mystical encounter with Zarathustra, as with Crowley, is the demonic "transvaluation of values" and the enthronement of divinized-self as the final anti-Christ, anti-moral, anti-tradition, authority while earth becomes the divine kingdom of the totalitarian demonized Masters of the Universe.
 
In a larger context, this means that the absolute freedom (license) increasingly exercised by contemporary Western and American god-men and their masses of followers in the name of scientism, evolution, moral relativism, absolute equality, open-minded tolerance and man-made rights (i.e., "gay" marriage, pedophilia) is actually the destructive license which perverts the true meaning and purpose of morally-principled freedom. Absolute freedom enslaves god-men and their followers to their dark side, or sin nature, thus leading them into the anarchy of concupiscence and self-gratification issuing in hate, envy, paranoia, violence, and murder.
 
The 19th century apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky foresaw the devastating consequences of absolute freedom that would usher in planetary spiritual socialism during the age of demonized god-men.
 
Out of the surfeit of arrogant conceit, destructive license, and violence exacerbated by blasphemy and unbelief said Dostoevsky, will emerge a new man, a miserable man anxious to be saved from himself and the madness of others, hence ready to surrender his absolute freedom for safety, earthly bread, peace, a soothed conscience and a modicum of comfort derived from sin sanctified by his Masters. (Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 179)
 
In this way demonized god-men and their followers will progress from the tyranny of sin and evil spirits to the tyranny of the Man of Lawlessness, the Anti-Christ (2 Thessalonians 2:3), the psychopath par excellence, for out of the shattered,
 
"... spiritual and social order emerges the new ethic of absolute submission to absolute power." (ibid)
 
So will end the Aeon of Horus with its reign of demonized god-men.

Mystical Evolution and Magic Science: Anti-God, Anti-Creation Religion of Western Super Men

In the classic work "Earth's Earliest Ages" (1876), the English theologian G.H. Pember records that  men of the 19th century were returning to ancient wisdom traditions and thought was "sustaining its flight upon the wings of ancient lore."   Almost every characteristic of antiquity is returning:

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

Today evolutionary philosophy and the ancient wisdom traditions undergirding it are promoted by modern practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular humanist religion, a "full-fledged alternative to Christianity" with meaning and morality, said Michael Ruse,

" I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint—and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it—the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.… Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity."   Michael Ruse
 
Michael Ruse was professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada. He was the leading anti-creationist philosopher whose flawed arguments  convinced a biased judge to rule against the Arkansas ‘balanced treatment’ of creation and evolution in schools bill proposed in 1981. At the trial, he and other anti-creationists loftily dismissed the claim that evolution was an anti-god religion.  (creation.com)
 
As Ruse confessed though, evolution is an anti-creation religion, a "full-fledged alternative to Christianity."  It is promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with spirits, astral plane travels, and Illuminism.  

The mother of Illuminism is Babylon's Mystery Religion which teaches that man,
 
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)  

The goal of modern Illuminism is the spiritual transformation of human initiates into supermen (god-men) who in turn will impose a worldwide totalitarian pagan and occult pantheist World Order. 

During the 20th century Illuminism took the form of scientific socialism and scientific communism.  Today it is 'green' Technocracy, a scientific dictatorship calling for the radical transformation of traditional Western economics, government, law, energy, Christianity, and humanity which is why it maliciously fosters the atheism, amorality, envy, chaos, blood-letting and revolution necessary for undermining and overthrowing already existing governments.  (Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, Patrick M. Wood) 

Scientifically Demonstrable Revelations

In the heart of Christendom at the time of the Renaissance the "alternative" originally took the form of occult pantheist humanism bespeaking evolution of divine spark or spirit to higher and higher states of god-consciousness.  Later on another form arose: evolutionary secular materialist  humanism.  While the former was blatantly occult and spiritually pantheist, the latter was essentially  de-spiritualized pagan materialism---a magical version of the former falsely presenting itself as demonstrable empirical science to masses of hopeless people bereft of assurances of immortality, who after so great an attack on biblical revelation were "begging for a revelation which was scientifically demonstrable."  (James Webb, The Occult Underground)

One such 'scientific' revelation was provided by Karl Marx.  Marxs' secular-atheist dialectical-materialism (evolving animated matter) cannot be understood apart from the inventor of the dialectic system, master-magician G.W.F. Hegel. Hegel was an important member of the occult intelligentsia. He closely studied ancient and modern wisdom traditions including ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic and Babylonian Kabala as well as mesmerism, psychic phenomena, dowsing, precognition, and sorcery. He professed belief in a pantheistic Earth Spirit, and informally aligned himself with Hermetic societies, anti-Christian God Freemasons, and the pantheist-Rosicrucian's. (Hegel and the Hermetic Tradition, Glenn Alexander Magee, 2001)

Enrico Ferri (1856-1926) provides another so-called "scientifically demonstrable revelation."  Ferri was a prominent socialist of his day and an Italian criminologist who for many years was the editor of Avanti, a socialist daily.  In "Socialism and Religious Beliefs"  Ferri confesses that in his scientific "revelation" divine miracle-producing 'knowing' energies called 'natural causality' animate ideological systems,

 "....modern positive science...has substituted the conception of natural causality for the conception of miracles and divinity....I add that not only is Darwinism not contrary to socialism, but that it forms one of its fundamental scientific premises. As Virchow justly remarked, socialism is nothing else than the logical and vital outcome partly of Darwinism and partly of Spencerian evolution." (Marxists.org)

In a third example of a scientifically demonstrable "revelation," Gustav Wetter expounds on the magical 'mental' and 'divine' properties animating and informing nonliving matter and dialectic:

"...matter itself continually attains to higher perfection under its own power, thanks to indwelling dialectic...the dialectical materialists attribution of 'dialectic' to matter confers on it, not mental attributes only, but even divine ones." (Dialectical Materialism, Gustav A. Wetter, 1977, p. 58)

  Occult Scientism and Revelations from the Spirit Realm Undergirds Scientific "Revelations"

 In his book, The Abolition of Man (1947), C.S. Lewis observed that the Renaissance had reawakened a magical view of man and the world closely connected with ancient occult sciences and pantheist wisdom traditions.  Along with these arcane nature systems came conceptions of biological and spiritual transformism of one kind of lower thing to another kind of higher thing (i.e. chemicals to life, pond scum to fish; apes to man; man to god), reincarnation, karma and for secular materialists there eventually came philosophically materialist Darwinism, natural selection (a mystical choice-making energy) and determinism (mystical fatalism).

Early on Lewis understood that these two types of pagan and pantheist humanism were merely two sides of the same revival of nature and self-worship (idolatry). Thus he argued, occult pantheist and materialist humanism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies of naturalism united against the personal God in three Persons who created ex nihilo, His Authoritative Revelation to mankind, Original Sin, man as His spiritual image-bearer, moral law, immutable truth, Christian theism, and Christian-based civilization.
 
Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) reveals two recurring themes uniting both schools of thought in his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy." The two themes are monism (meaning only nature or cosmos exists) and evolutionary conceptions. At the root of these two themes there is:
 
"...defiance of God, pride unlimited, a yearning for enormous power and the assumption of divine attributes with a view to manipulating and shaping mankind's fate." (p. 227)
 
In other words, in order for modern super men to scientifically engineer a perfected new world order populated by a perfected New Man, two actions must first take place:  the speculative murder of the living Holy Triune God and the sealing off of the way to Heaven.    

The 20th Century: Age of Fabian Socialists

John Taylor Gatto, former New York State and New York City Teacher of the Year, also tracked the rise of this destructive modern occult pagan intelligentsia together with the potent "interconnected shadow-government" they created to radically reshape the Western and American consciousness.  In his book, "The Underground History of American Education"  Gatto points to the Fabian socialist utopians as one of the most powerfully effective revolutionary 'change-making' organizations and notes that,
 
"...it would not be too far out of line to call the twentieth century the Fabian century." (Gatto, p. 178)
 
What 'scientific' secular-atheists aspired to be in completely reordering Christian-based Western society and the souls of men according to scientific evolutionary principles, 20th century Fabians actually were.  Much if not most of the madness, chaos, apostasy, and all else that has gone so horribly wrong here in America is attributable to the Fabians.
 
The first Fabians had almost all been lapsed Anglicans from Evangelical homes who became dignitaries in the Church of England:
 
"There was a Christian fringe to the London socialism of the eighties, but this too was Anglican. The Christian Socialists came together in Stewart Headlam's Guild of St. Matthew and the Land Reform Union; and the more respectable Christian Social Union, formed in 1889 -- seeking in Fabian style to permeate the Anglican Church -- soon attracted more than two thousand clerical members. Dissenting clergymen too began to find a place in the Fabian Society and the London Progressives, while Unitarian churches and centres like Stanton Coit's Ethical Church provided a meeting place for believers and idealist agnostics . . . Socialism was for all of them, the new Evangelism." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, Simon & Schuster, 1977, p. 18)

The failure of many Anglican hierarchy to repudiate apostatizing higher Biblical critics and radical freethinkers scandalized faithful, orthodox Evangelicals, whose outraged response was considered reactionary by the scholarly community. In 1861, Benjamin Jowett and six liberal Churchmen published a volume entitled Essays and Reviews, in which they expressed alarm lest "the majority of Churchmen, by holding fast the narrow, fundamental beliefs" in the Genesis account for example,

"...should estrange themselves more and more from contemporary thought."  (The Founders of Psychical Research, Alan Gauld, p. 49)

Jowett himself held that, "Scripture must be interpreted like any other book and some of the essayists were even more radical in their tone."

The portents of apostasy in the Church of England were ominous:

"It seemed to conservative Christians quite appalling that at a time when the impregnable rock of Holy Scripture was being undermined by Darwin and his allies, a group of those whose sacred duty should have been to shore it up again had conspired to hammer their wedges not under it but into it." (Gauld, p. 50)

Gauld records the rapid decline in spiritual aspirations among younger Cambridge men:

"Scepticism based on science flowed into and reinforced the older stream of doubt stemming from historical and ethical considerations. Their joint effect may be traced in the fact that whilst the outstanding Cambridge men of the 1840's -- B. F. Westcott, C. B. Scott, J. Llewellyn Davies, J.E.B. Mayer, Lord Alwyne Compton, E.H, Bickersteth, C. F. Mackenzie, Charles Evans, J. B. Lightfoot, E. W. Benson and F.J.A. Hort -- all took Orders (three of them becoming great clerical headmasters and six bishops), the outstanding Cambridge intellectuals of the 1870's -- the Trinity group centring on Henry Sidgwick and Henry Jackson and including Frederic Myers, G. W. and A. J. Balfour, Walter Leaf, Edmund Gurney, Arthur Verrall, F. W. Maitland, Henry Butcher and George Prothero -- tended towards agnosticism or hesitant Deism."  (Gauld, p. 64)

In this same period a group of young dons from Trinity College, Cambridge, were also turning to psychic research as a substitute for their lost God-created souls and Evangelical faith:

" In February 1882, Podmore took Pease to a meeting at which this group founded the Society for Psychical Research . . . Among those who founded the SPR were Henry Sidgwick, Arthur Balfour -- later a conservative Prime Minister -- and his brother, Gerald."  (The Fabians, p. 18)

 The progenitor of the socialist Fabian Society was the Cambridge University spiritist group, the Ghost Society founded in 1851. The Ghost Society also spawned the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) founded in 1887:
 
"Council Members and Honorary Members of the SPR included a past Prime Minister (William Gladstone)...and a future Prime Minister (Arthur Balfour)...2 bishops; and Tennyson and Ruskin, two of the outstanding literary figures of the day (as well as) Lewis Carroll (and) a surprising number of titled persons." (Gauld, p. 140)

 Having conceptually murdered the God of Revelation, disowned their own souls, and closed the way to Heaven, Fabians sought power here below, thus the over-riding interest of the S.P.R. was the spirit realm. In search of power they conducted scientific research into phenomena such as mesmeric trance, telepathy, clairvoyance, apparitions, haunted houses, seances, and all aspects of mediumism, or contact with spirits, to determine the scientific laws of physical spiritualistic phenomena.
 
 By the early 20th century, the materialist Sigmund Freud and heavily demonized Gnostic occultist Carl Jung were SPR Corresponding Members. Both men contributed to the S.P.R. Journal of Proceedings.
 
In an expose of Jung's occult tendencies Richard Noll writes:
 
"With the founding of the Society for Psychical Research in England in 1882, and the copious publications of its investigators, new models of the unconscious mind emerged. The most respected model was that of the 'subliminal self' by Frederick Myers (1843-1901), the 'mytho-poetic' (myth-making) function of which resembles Jung's later conception of a collective unconscious. Jung read widely in the literature of psychical research in medical school and his 1902 dissertation cites the work of Myers and others in this school." (Noll, The Jung Cult, 1994, pp. 31-2)
 
Above all else, revolutionary/evolutionary socialist organizations such as the Fabians were counter-establishment, anti-tradition, sexual liberationists consisting of committed Darwinian Gnostic elitists who were intolerant of the Holy God in three Persons, man as His spiritual image bearer, and every vestige of authority such as immutable Truth, Moral Law, sexual ethics, the traditional family, free market systems, individual liberties, and cumbersome processes of Americas' Constitutional Republic and  wanted to see a new order ruled by a superior caste.
 
Fabianism took its name from Roman general Fabius Cunctator who finally defeated Hannibal by methodically chipping away at his patience and will to win, an idea adopted by  Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci who called for a long, slow, stealthy march through Western and American mind and culture-shaping institutions.   In this way, Christian foundations would be destroyed, minds captured, souls re-engineered and institutions re-ordered.

Darwinism, Polygenism, and Racialist Fabians

Gatto writes that for Fabianists, Darwin was the 'weird holy man' they adored,
 
"...the man who gave them a theory inspirationally equal to god-theory, around which a new organization of society could be justified." (p. 180)
 
Darwinism is inherently racist because in rejecting creation ex nihilo, by extension it also rejects monogenism (all humans descended from Adam and Eve) in favour of polygenism (multiple origins of human races). Thus, to realize the tremendous task that racialist Fabians assigned themselves in their sinister work of scientifically engineering a new order and a New Man we need to reflect on Darwin's shattering books, said Gatto:
 
'The Origin of Species' (1859) and 'The Descent of Man' (1871), each arguing in its own way that....children are (the evolved product of) their race of origin, some 'favored'...some not" (Gatto, p. 179)
 
Together, Darwin's books issued a license to America's ruling caste to justify racism, moral relativism, the imposition of evolutionary teaching, forced schooling, perverse sex education, population control schemes, and much more, all destructive of America's traditional Christian-based Republic.  Gatto writes that from an evolutionary standpoint, our government controlled schools,
 
"...are the indoctrination phase of a gigantic breeding experiment...Many (children are genetically) a racial menace (while) the rest...thought of as soldiers in genetic combat, the moral equivalent of war....For governments, children could no longer be considered individuals but were regarded as categories, rungs on a biological ladder.  Evolutionary science pronounced the majority useless mouths waiting for nature to dispense with entirely." (Gatto, p. 179)
 
Whereas Christian salvation was formerly held to be a matter between Jesus Christ the Word Incarnate and the individual  and the aim of Christian-based Europe and America had for centuries been fixed on the work of winning liberties for the individual against the oppressive State, the Age of Darwin brought an end to all of this.  By the turn of the century the Fabian program based in "scientifically demonstrable" revelations from the spirit realm and racialist Darwinism was spreading quickly through the best colleges and universities capturing the minds of America's best and brightest issuing in the view that rights, wealth, and privileges are the preserve of the superior caste in control of an omniscient mystical god-State together with salvation as a pantheist conception based in ideas of collectivity.

Secular historians of the nineteenth century agree that the dominant figures in the occult spiritist/socialist movements were mainly lapsed Evangelicals and Anglican clergymen preceded by Renaissance rebels against God.  The onslaught of skepticism, atheism, agnosticism, higher Biblical criticism and dehistorization of the Genesis account together with moral relativism, Darwinism and occult New Age spirituality assaulting the tattered foundations of our Republic were inspired by Protestant/Evangelical heresy together with an unhealthy interest in spiritism. Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie explain this strange anomaly:
 
"The lesson instilled by Evangelical parents had been given a secular form. Evolution or what (Sidney) Webb called Zeitgeist, had taken the place of Providence, yet what Webb described as 'blind social forces...which went on inexorably working out social salvation' did not relieve men of their moral responsibility. Victorian religion had taught that a belief in God's purposes must be accompanied by an effort to discern and advance them. Socialists who substituted a secular religion for the faith of their youth felt the same compulsion." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, p. 115-116)
 
Todays' Green Dragon

By the mid 1880's the Green Dragon---the spirit of madness, heresy, apostasy, moral relativism, occult magic, spiritism, nature worship and evolutionary thinking working within lapsed Evangelicals crept into the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Church around the turn of the century.  Today Christendom is dead and the spirit of green-pagan madness is bringing our Republic to ruin while steadily injecting its' abominations into the whole body of the sleeping American Church. Aided and abetted by falsifiers of the Revealed Word who have "penetrated the Church" with a mist of lies resulting in narcissistic self-affirmation, emotional ecstasy, moral relativism, acceptance of evolutionary philosophy and other ancient wisdom traditions along with liberation from sin and hell,

"....Western civilization is daily committing suicide, by aborting itself, ignoring the law of God, and binding itself in Green chains.  What of professing Christians?  It is not clear many believe, as they still did at the American Revolution, that 'the truths of the gospel are the most pure, its motives are the most noble and animating, and its comforts the most supporting to the mind.' Our culture is arguably as enslaved as were the ancient people chained by Gaia and Python. " (Resisting the Green Dragon, James Wanliss, p. 267)

Only Christ can bring liberation.  The Church needs to recover the Biblical persuasion,

".... that the Christian is a pilgrim on the road to a heavenly city, that the social structures of the earthly city do not represent the coming of God's kingdom, and the vision of a society should be to direct man to what is transcendent." (ibid)

Evolutionary Christians Do Not Believe Moses, So How Will They Believe Jesus Words?

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

John 1:3,10 tells us that everything seen and unseen was created ex nihilo by the spoken Word of the Son of God. This means that Jesus Christ was active and present long before His incarnation, therefore eternally co-existent with the Father. (John 1:2; Proverbs 8:23)  Jesus Christ is therefore God just as the Father and Holy Spirit are God, thus the Word of the Old Testament's creation account is Jesus Christ of the New Testament.  Jesus Christ is the Word.   His Word is Truth even as He Himself is Truth, the same today as yesterday and for ever.  Jesus Christ does not change and as He is the starting point for the reasoning of the faithful, then obedient Christians must reject the long unchallenged assumptions of revolutionary humanism's longstanding war against the Word of God---the Book of Genesis in particular---in all its parts... historical, prophetical, geographical, linguistic, and doctrinal.  

When Paul affirms in the Lord that his Gentile readers should no longer live as Gentile pagans do in the futility of their darkened minds (Ephesians 4: 17-24), he speaks to all pagan and pantheist humanists from antiquity to our own age (i.e., New Age, Progressive Leftists, and Technocratic Trans-Humanists) who reject the pure knowledge of the Holy Trinity and vainly think of themselves as "enlightened" when in reality they are "en-darkened."  Their ignorance is not a lack of education, and some of them are brilliant in their own way, but such brilliance is wasted on vain imaginings and wisdom of this world which will not get them to heaven, thus utterly foolish and futile, especially when combined with hardness of heart toward the truth of the gospel in Christ (Matt. 13:14-15; John 12:40; Acts 28: 26; Rom. 11:8)

Evolutionary Theism Implies That Christ is Wrong About Creation

When modern pagan materialists speak frankly, they not only confess their fear and hatred of the Triune God of Revelation but admit that their so-called 'scientific theories'...the products of their darkened imaginations...are foolishness:
 
"...one belief that all true original Darwinians held in common, and that was their rejection of creationism, their rejection of special creation. This was the flag around which they assembled and under which they marched.... The conviction that the diversity of the natural world was the result of natural processes and not the work of God was the idea that brought all the so-called Darwinians together in spite of their disagreements on other of Darwin's theories. (One Long Argument,1991, p. 99, Ernst Mayr, 1904–2005, Professor of Zoology at Harvard University)

"We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door." ("Billions and Billions of Demons," Richard Lewontin (b. 1929), PhD Zoology, Alexander Agassiz Research Professor at Harvard University)

Today many 'scientifically enlightened' Western and American theologians, seminarians and intellectuals take the side of revolutionary humanism in their rejection of belief in Moses in favor of scientism and esoteric biological evolution (pagan materialistic scientism parading as Western science).  By the logic of their position they implicitly or explicitly hold that Christ Himself was wrong about Genesis. Pope Francis, Timothy Keller, Leonard Sweet, and many others fall into this category.   Having fallen into the scientism and evolution quagmire, they deride, ridicule, demonize, and harshly criticize obedient Christians who refuse to stumble after them.

Evolutionary scenarios commonly proposed by evolutionary theists typically reduce Adam and Eve to mythical figures such as hominids with the consequence that Eve was never promised a ‘Seed' and death didn’t come from a Fall but rather from the death of the millions of evolved creatures that preceded humans by billions of years.   So evolution not only makes God responsible for death but in amputating the entire historical precedent from the Gospel it changes the rest of Scripture and makes Jesus Christ unnecessary as atheist Frank Zindler points out:

The most devastating thing though that biology did to Christianitywas the discovery of biological evolution. Now that we know Adam and Eve neverwere real people the central myth of Christianity is destroyed. If there neverwas an Adam and Eve, there never was an original sin. If there never was anoriginal sin there is no need of salvation. If there is no need of salvationthere is no need of a savior. And I submit that puts Jesus, historical or otherwise, into the ranks of the unemployed. I think that evolution absolutely is thedeath knell of Christianity.” (Frank Zindler, American atheist, in a debate with William Craig, Atheism vs Christianity video, 1996, from "Homeschooling parents demand evolutionary textbooks," Lita Cosner, 13 June 2013

Over and across the entire denominational spectrum, it is the obedient---those who love the Lord---who stand against evolution and are harshly criticized, ridiculed, and condemned by the disobedient for their so-called  'anti-science religionism, narrow-mindedness, fundamentalism, cultural isolationism, and anti-intellectualism' which they call,
 
“....the rejection of science,” and then refer to this as “textbook evidence of an unyielding ignorance on the part of the religious.” (Total Capitulation: The Evangelical Surrender of Truth, Dr. Mohler,October 25, 2011) 
 
Dr. Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary stands strong against evolutionary compromise:
 
” At the very least, the acceptance of evolutionary theory requires that the first two chapters of Genesis be read merely as a literary rendering that offers no historical data. But, of course, the injury does not end there. If evolution is true, then the entire narrative of the Bible has to be revised and reinterpreted. The evolutionary account is not only incompatible with any historical affirmation of Genesis, but it is also incompatible with the claim that all humanity is descended from Adam and the claim that in Adam all humanity fell into sin and guilt. The Bible’s account of the Fall and its consequences is utterly incompatible with evolutionary theory. The third chapter of Genesis is as problematic for evolutionary theory as the first two.” (Creation vs. Evolution — The New Shape of the Debate, Dr. Mohler, February 1, 2011)
 
Paul warned of the days when Christians would not tolerate the eternally unchanging Authority of God's Word and sound doctrine, but would instead surround themselves with worldly humanists who would tickle their ears. (2 Tim 4:1-3) 
 
Those days are here.
 
According to Benjamin Wiker and Scott Hahn, authors of the meticulously researched book, "Politicizing the Bible," a great cosmological shift away from the supernatural Genesis account ex nihilo toward an anti-supernatural and wholly pagan or secular understanding of the universe, God, man, philosophy, science, and morality occurred in the seventeenth century.   The research efforts of the two men take them deep into the Middle Ages and Renaissance to show that the appropriation, deconstruction and paganization of scripture and invention of the historical-critical method taken for granted at modern divinity schools worldwide, originated with politically motivated interpreters.  Among them were early Popes, Machiavelli, Marsilio of Padua, Henry VIII, Thomas Hobbes,  Descartes and Spinoza, who sought an empire of science. 

Moving to the Renaissance and the book, "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), reveals the 'temper of that age' as a spirit of rebellion against the Holy Triune God and His created order.  This is why certain highly placed, influential Renaissance Christian theologians, mystics and scholars, having discovered ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts from the time of Babylon, studied and translated these ancient texts, resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science – the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and spiritual powers through ritual procedures such as transcendental meditation iand spiritual evolution s the best proof of the divinity of Christ as a force of nature. In other words said Molnar,

".....by the time of the Renaissance the esoteric texts of the first centuries A.D. had acquired in scholarly and humanist circles an unparalleled prestige, confronting as equals the texts held sacred by the church. In Pico's estimation, 'nulla est scientia que nos magis certificet de divinitate Christ quam magia et Cabala' (there is no science that would prove for us Christ's divinity better than magic and the Cabala.)" (pp. 78-79) 

The defiant embrace of magic science and evolutionary conceptions originating in Babylon and undergirding occult traditions such as mystical Hinduism, Buddhism, Egyptian Hermeticism and evolutionary Kabbalah paved the way for the rationalism of the European Enlightenment.  

Rationalism glorified the unregenerate will, conscience and intellect of rebellious men rather than the Word of God.   These seeds of corruption blossomed into a huge upsurge of anti-Christian endeavor resulting in the subordination of the Word of God to the findings of magic science and evolutionary thinking which opened the door for yet more corruption in the 19th century---theological liberalism (evolutionary pantheism) and 'higher criticism.'
 
Theological liberalism first developed in Germany.  Its first real manifestation was at the University of Tubingen where Ferdinand Baur (1792-1860) had formed a school of theology for the purpose of raising doubts about the Bible.  This tactic was designed to undermine the Revealed Word as the exclusive fount of truth.  Among areas which came under suspicion were the Genesis account, the person and deity of Christ, the fall and human sin, the authority of Scripture, the transcendence of God, the Way of spiritual salvation, and the doctrine of the Christian Church.  (From Old Gnosticism to New Age, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 28:4-29:1, 2005, pp. 32-33)

The theological liberalism inaugurated at Tubingen 'Christianized' the cosmological shift and the magic science and evolutionary pantheism sweeping over our nation in many guises today: Teilhard's New Religion, Leonard Sweets quantum spirituality, the Quantum Void posited by modern physicists and occult New Age for example. 

Theological liberalism owed much to the occult Hermetic pantheist philosophy of George Hegel (1770-1811).   Hegel was a philosophical heir of ancient occult traditions and an important member of an occult brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance.  His early writings were very much influenced by Christoph Oetinger (1702-1782), the gnostic occult Kabbalist and disciple of Renaissance Hermetic-Kabbalists such as Emanuel Swedenborg and Jakob Boehme (1575-1624). Hegels dialectic, or pantheist theory of historical evolution, dovetailed neatly with liberal theology’s evolutionary pantheism and its’ outrageous claim that Christianity was a hybrid religion of the Near East. (ibid)
 
Somewhat later, Karl Marx secularized Hegel’s dialectic for his own evolutionary conception, dialectical materialism. 
 
This period also saw a more forceful appearance of 'higher criticism,' the evil-twin of theological liberalism.   Higher criticism cast suspicion upon the authorship and dating of the books of the Bible in an attempt to undermine the truth-claims of Scripture.  Such unsanctified exploration led to an enquiry into the identity of the historical Jesus, typified in the anti-supernaturalistic book, "The Life of Jesus," written in 1835 by Baur's pupil, D.F. Strauss (1808-1874). (ibid)
 
When Darwin published his theory, theological liberals (progressives) eagerly embraced it, not because they actually believed it, but because behind its’ ‘science’ façade they could openly embrace the occult evolutionary conceptions posited by ancient Egyptian Hermeticism and esoteric Kabbalah.
 
With these developments, the seal was set on a critical, rationalistic, and skeptical approach to the Word of God that elevates magic science, evolution, and other idols of men above the Word of God.  

This tragic development results in large flocks of misled sheep who cannot believe Moses (John 5:45-47) because the ministers who guide them are falling stars who in their arrogant ignorance reject as unscientific the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.  The atheist Frank Zindler conveys the logical consequences:

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

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

"... he who is represented by this star becomes the minister of the devil; and lets loose the powers of hell against the churches of Christ. On the opening of the bottomless pit, there arose a great smoke. The devil carries on his designs by blinding the eyes of men...putting out light and knowledge, and promoting ignorance and error. Out of this smoke there came a swarm of locusts, emblems of the devil's agents, who promote superstition, idolatry, error, and cruelty...the true believers...should be untouched (but) a secret poison and infection in the soul, should rob many others of purity, and....peace. The locusts had no power to hurt those who had the seal of God. God's all-powerful, distinguishing grace will keep his people from total and final apostacy." (Commentary on Revelation 9: 1-12)

 Since neither falling stars nor their misled flocks can believe Moses, they cannot believe the Word, God-Incarnate, our savior Jesus Christ.

In response to the spread of unbelief and the presence of false teachers, apostates and abominations infecting the Body of Christ our Lord said:

"Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit." Matthew 15:13-14

Evolutionary theists are blind guides leading blind sheep over the Gaderene cliffs. But blessed is the man who does not place his trust in blind guides who stray after heresies and idols of men (Psalm 40: 4-5).  Nor does he throw away his confidence in the Lord:

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

And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. ”  Luke 24:27

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1) "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14) "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:3) "From everlasting I was established, From the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth.” (Proverbs 8:23) "He was with God in the beginning.” (John 1:2) "The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” (Colossians 1:15) "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.If you had known Me, you would know My Father as well. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.”  (John 14:6-7) "And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.”  (John 3:19)

Today increasing numbers of 'scientifically enlightened' Western and American theologians, seminarians and intellectuals reject belief in Moses in favor of science (magic science) and biological evolution.

The theological liberalism inaugurated at Tubingen 'Christianized' the cosmological shift and the magic science and evolutionary pantheism sweeping over our nation in many guises today: Teilhard's New Religion, Leonard Sweets quantum spirituality, the Quantum Void posited by modern physicists and occult New Age for example. 
 
Theological liberalism owed much to the occult Hermetic pantheist philosophy of George Hegel (1770-1811).   Hegel was a philosophical heir of ancient occult traditions and an important member of an occult brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance.  His early writings were very much influenced by Christoph Oetinger (1702-1782), the gnostic occult Kabbalist and disciple of Renaissance Hermetic-Kabbalists such as Emanuel Swedenborg and Jakob Boehme (1575-1624). Hegels dialectic, or pantheist theory of historical evolution, dovetailed neatly with liberal theology’s evolutionary pantheism and its’ outrageous claim that Christianity was a hybrid religion of the Near East. (ibid)

Somewhat later, Karl Marx secularized Hegel’s dialectic for his own evolutionary conception, dialectical materialism. 
 
This period also saw a more forceful appearance of 'higher criticism,' the evil-twin of theological liberalism.   Higher criticism cast suspicion upon the authorship and dating of the books of the Bible in an attempt to undermine the truth-claims of Scripture.  Such unsanctified exploration led to an enquiry into the identity of the historical Jesus, typified in the anti-supernaturalistic book, "The Life of Jesus," written in 1835 by Baur's pupil, D.F. Strauss (1808-1874). (ibid)
 
When Darwin published his theory, theological liberals (progressives) eagerly embraced it, not because they actually believed it, but because behind its’ ‘science’ façade they could openly embrace the occult evolutionary conceptions posited by ancient Egyptian Hermeticism and esoteric Kabbalah.
 
With these developments, the seal was set on a critical, rationalistic, and skeptical approach to the Word of God that elevates the unregenerate conscience and darkened intellect of man, magic  science, and Gnostic pagan evolution above the Word of God.  

This tragic development results in large flocks of misled sheep who cannot believe Moses (John 5:45-47) because the ministers who guide them are falling stars who in their arrogant ignorance reject as unscientific the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.  The atheist Frank Zindler conveys the logical consequences:

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

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

"... he who is represented by this star becomes the minister of the devil; and lets loose the powers of hell against the churches of Christ. On the opening of the bottomless pit, there arose a great smoke. The devil carries on his designs by blinding the eyes of men...putting out light and knowledge, and promoting ignorance and error. Out of this smoke there came a swarm of locusts, emblems of the devil's agents, who promote superstition, idolatry, error, and cruelty...the true believers...should be untouched (but) a secret poison and infection in the soul, should rob many others of purity, and....peace. The locusts had no power to hurt those who had the seal of God. God's all-powerful, distinguishing grace will keep his people from total and final apostacy." (Commentary on Revelation 9: 1-12)

 Since neither falling stars nor their misled flocks can believe Moses, they cannot believe the Word, God-Incarnate, our savior Jesus Christ.

In response to the spread of unbelief and the presence of false teachers, apostates and abominations infecting the Body of Christ our Lord said:

"Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit." Matthew 15:13-14

Evolutionary theists are blind guides leading the blind over the Gaderene cliffs. Thus blessed is the man who does not place his trust in blind guides who stray after heresies and abominations of desolation such as evolution (Psalm 40: 4-5) and exalt the works of their fallen imaginations against the knowledge of God. (2 Cor. 10:5).

Do not throw away your confidence in the Lord:

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

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)
