Political Correctness: What it is & How it Works to Destroy America from within

"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.org, Jan. 26, 2005)

Political correctness demands that in order for one not to be thought of as racist, homophobic, bigoted, fascist, hateful, mentally ill and anti-science, then one must not only be nonjudgmental but must also embrace evolutionary thinking and man-made morality: diversity, choice, sensitivity, sexual orientation, and tolerance.

The foundation and key strategy of political correctness (the consensus process) is the knowledge that all individuals have an inherent fear of being alienated from the group. During sensitivity-training and diversity-training sessions, skillful change-agents (facilitators) psychologically manipulate this fear to herd selected victims toward a preplanned conclusion that induces them to compromise both conscience and position. This is the consensus process in a nut shell, and when we hear communist-inspired Leftists, progressives and liberals screaming for 'consensus,' they're really demanding that they be allowed to 'facilitate' the compromise of conscience which leads to the abandonment of the Triune God, Scripture, and the Genesis account of creation in favor of atheism and evolutionary cosmologies, and Christian-based Western ideals, principles, institutions (i.e., one man, one woman marriage in favor of "gay" and anything goes groupings), binary (i.e., the two created sexes in favor of sodomy and androgyny; truth and good against lie and evil in favor of moral relativism), holidays (i.e., Christmas in favor of Sparkle Day) and related traditions.

As evolutionary thinking is an abomination that desolates the Word of God so too is political correctness an abomination that desolates our minds by imprisoning our thought life within narrow psychic cages.

Blessed is the Man who Listens not to Proud Men who Stray After Lies

"Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Rev. 19:10) 

"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son" (1 John 2:22).

"And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit." (Rev. 9:1)

While most commentators identify the falling star as only Lucifer, 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."

John identifies antichrists, in this case clergy who serve the devil rather than Christ, sequentially. First, like Bultmann, Teilhard de Chardin, Robert Funk, Paul Tillich, and John Shelby Spong, for example, they specifically deny the living, personal Holy Trinity by negation of the literal and historical elements of the Genesis account in favor of Gnostic pagan, immanent or Eastern pantheist evolutionary conceptions. Though the One God in three Persons upholds the souls of men and maintains life and creation, His substance is not within nature (space-time dimension) as pagan and pantheist evolutionary and progressive creation speculators subtly imply but outside of it. Sinful men live within nature and are burdened by time and mortality; God is not.

Second, the specific denial of the Father who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo in six days logically negates Jesus the Christ, the Word who was in the beginning (John 1), was with God, and is God from the creation of all things (1 John 1). In a pre-incarnate theophany, Jesus is the Angel who spoke "mouth to mouth" to Moses (Num. 12:6-9; John 9:20) and at sundry times and in many ways "spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, last of all..." (Hebrews 1:1) Jesus the Christ is the incarnate Son of God, the life and light of men, the perfect fulfillment of law and prophecy (Rev. 19:10) who by His shed blood on the Cross died for the remission of all sins and bestowed the privilege of adoption on all who put their faith in Him. Therefore, to deny the Holy Father through denial of creation ex nihilo is to logically deny the deity of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, hence,

"...every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist . . . and even now already is it in the world" (1 John 4:3).

According to Peter (2 Peter 2:1), human falling stars will work among the faithful, teaching damnable heresies that deny the Lord, cause the fall of men into unbelief, and bring destruction upon themselves:

"The natural parents of modern unbelief turn out to have been the guardians of belief." Many thinking people came at last "to realize that it was religion, not science or social change that gave birth to unbelief. Having made God more and more like man – intellectually, morally, emotionally – the shapers of religion made it feasible to abandon God, to believe simply in man." (James Turner of the University of Michigan in "American Babylon," Richard John Neuhaus, p. 95)

Falling Stars and Damnable Heresy

Almost thirty years ago, two well-respected social science scholars, William Sims Bainbridge and Rodney Stark found themselves alarmed by what they saw as a rising tide of irrationalism, superstition and occultism – channeling cults, spirit familiars, necromancers, Wiccans, Satanists, Luciferians, goddess worshippers, 'gay' shamans, Hermetic magicians and other occult madness at every level of society, particularly within the most influential – Hollywood, academia and the highest corridors of political power.

Like many scientists, they were equally concerned by Christian opposition to naturalistic evolution. As is common in the science community, they assumed the cause of these social pathologies was somehow due to fundamentalism, their term for faithful, orthodox Christian theism as opposed to progressive and/or liberalized Christianity. Yet to their credit, the research they undertook to discover the cause was conducted both scientifically and with great integrity. What they found was so startling it caused them to re-evaluate their attitude toward authentic Christian theism. Their findings led them to say:

"It would be a mistake to conclude that fundamentalists oppose all science (when in reality they but oppose) a single theory (that) directly contradicts the bible. But it would be an equally great mistake to conclude that religious liberals and the irreligious possess superior minds of great rationality, to see them as modern personalities who have no need of the supernatural or any propensity to believe unscientific superstitions. On the contrary...they are much more likely to accept the new superstitions. It is the fundamentalists who appear most virtuous according to scientific standards when we examine the cults and pseudo-sciences proliferating in our society today." ("Superstitions, Old and New," The Skeptical Inquirer, Vol. IV, No. 4; summer, 1980)

In more detail they observed that authentic 'born again' (spiritually regenerated) Christians are far less likely to accept cults and pseudoscientific beliefs while the irreligious and liberalized Christians (i.e., evolutionary and progressive creation theists, progressive Catholics, Protestant emergent, NAR, word faith, prosperity gospel) are open to unscientific notions. In fact, these two groups are most disposed toward occultism.

As Bainbridge and Stark admitted, evolutionary science directly contradicts the Bible, beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo. This means that evolutionary science is the antithesis of the Genesis account. For this reason, discerning Christians refuse to submit to the evolutionary thinking that has swept Western and American society. Nor do they accept the evolutionary theism and progressive creation brought into the whole body of the Church by weak, tepid, indecisive, or apostate clergy.

Over eighty years ago, Rev. C. Leopold Clarke wrote that priests who embrace evolution (evolutionary theists) are apostates from the 'Truth as it is in Jesus.' (1 John2:2) Rev. Clarke, a lecturer at a London Bible college, discerned that evolution is the antithesis to the Revelation of God in the Deity of Jesus Christ, thus it is the greatest and most active agent of moral and spiritual disintegration:

"It is a battering-ram of unbelief – a sapping and mining operation that intends to blow Religion sky-high. The one thing which the human mind demands in its conception of God, is that, being Almighty, He works sovereignly and miraculously – and this is the thing with which Evolution dispenses....Already a tremendous effect, on a wide scale has been produced by the impact of this teaching – an effect which can only be likened to the...collapse of foundations..." (Evolution and the Break-Up of Christendom, Philip Bell, creation.com, Nov. 27, 2012)

The faith of the Christian Church and of the average Christian has had, and still has, its foundation as much in the literal and historic meaning of Genesis, the book of beginnings revealed 'mouth to mouth' by the Angel to Moses, as in that of the person and deity of Jesus Christ. But how horrible a travesty of the sacred office of the Christian Ministry to see church leaders more eager to be abreast of the times, than earnestly contending for the Faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3). It is high time, said Rev. Clarke, that the Church,

".... separated herself from the humiliating entanglement attending her desire to be thought up to date...What, after all, have custodians of Divine Revelation to do making terms with speculative Biology, which has....no message of comfort or help to the soul?" (ibid)

The primary tactic employed by priests eager to accommodate themselves and the Christian Church to modern science and evolutionary thinking is predictable. It is the argument that evolution is entirely compatible with the Bible when we see Genesis, especially the first three chapters, in a non-literal, non-historical context. This is the argument embraced and advanced by Pope Francis, Hugh Ross and mega-church pastor Timothy J. Keller.

With a position paper Keller published with the theistic evolutionary organization Bio Logos he joined the ranks of falling stars (Catholic and Protestant priests) stretching back to the Renaissance. Their slippery-slide into apostasy began when they gave into the temptation to embrace a non-literal, non-historical view of Genesis. (A response to Timothy Keller's 'Creation, Evolution and Christian Laypeople," Lita Cosner, Sept. 9, 2010, creation.com)

This is not a heresy unique to modern times. The early Church Fathers dealt with this damnable heresy as well, counting it among the heretical tendencies of the Origenists. Fourth-century Fathers such as John Chrysostom, Basil the Great and Ephraim the Syrian, all of whom wrote commentaries on Genesis, specifically warned against treating Genesis as an unhistorical myth or allegory. John Chrysostom strongly warned against paying heed to these heretics,

"...let us stop up our hearing against them, and let us believe the Divine Scripture, and following what is written in it, let us strive to preserve in our souls sound dogmas." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 31)

As St. Cyril of Alexandria wrote, higher theological, spiritual meaning and by extension, spiritual regeneration is founded upon humble, simple faith in the literal and historic meaning of Genesis and one cannot apprehend rightly the Scriptures without believing in the historical reality of the events and people they describe. (ibid, Seraphim Rose, p. 40)

In the integral worldview teachings of the Fathers, neither the literal nor historical meaning of the Revelations of the pre-incarnate Jesus, the Angel who spoke to Moses, can be regarded as expendable. There are at least four critically important reasons why. First, to reduce the Revelation of God to allegory and myth is to contradict and usurp the authority of God, ultimately deny the deity of Jesus Christ; twist, distort, add to and subtract from the entire Bible and finally, to imperil the salvation of believers.

Scenarios commonly proposed by modern Origenists posit a cleverly disguised pantheist/immanent nature deity subject to the space-time dimension and forces of evolution. But as noted previously, it is sinful man who carries the burden of time, not God. This is a crucial point, for when evolutionary theists add millions and billions of zeros (time) to God they have transferred their own limitations onto Him. They have 'limited' God and made Him over in their own image. This is not only idolatrous but satanic.

Additionally, evolution inverts creation. In place of God's good creation from which men fell there is an evolutionary escalator starting at the bottom with matter, then progressing upward toward life, then up and through the life and death of millions of evolved creatures that preceded humans by millions of years until at long last an apish humanoid emerges into which a deity that is always in a state of becoming (evolving) places a soul.

Evolution amputates the entire historical precedent from the Gospel and makes Jesus Christ unnecessary as the atheist Frank Zindler enthusiastically points out:

"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)

Blessed is the man who does not place his trust in proud men who stray after lies such as evolutionary science (Psalm 40: 4-5).  Do not throw away your confidence:

"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)

Modern Liberalism: Theology of Demons and Psychology of the Hell-Bound

For over eighty-five years, America has been incrementally conquered by the same madness-and-murder inducing demon of evil, hatred, paranoia and violence that earlier took over Russia, China, Germany, and Italy. This demon is embodied in American and Western Leftists, progressives and transnational "elites," all of which are deeply infected by scientific Communism and the delusion that the true enemy of America is always on the Right.  In "Kinder Garden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks," ex-liberal Evan Sayet notes that  the madness-inducing ideology of the modern liberal leads him to, 

"... invariably and inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right, the lesser over the better, the ugly over the beautiful, the profane over the profound, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success." 

Having rejected  the Triune God, their own souls and the religious heritage of our civilization, they embrace instead pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary naturalism of which Communism and Socialism are logical expressions.  A new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the existing Christian-based culture must be completely destroyed and the human soul re-engineered.

 So what is Communism?  Using the former Soviet Union as an example, Frank Meyers describes it as,

"The state form taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world."    Communism or scientific materialism is "the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  It is scientism (evolutionary biology and evolutionary cosmologies) 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)

After more than forty years of struggle to resist a Communist takeover of America by Leftists (also progressives and modern liberals), in his newly released book, "The Black Book of the American Left," David Horowitz reports that nearly every battle has been lost:

"The Black Book of the American Left is first of all a narrative map of the battles fought over the last 40 years and----it must be said---lost, almost every one.  The Black Book contains a record as complete as any likely to be written of the struggle to resist a Communist-inspired Left that was not defeated in the Cold War but took advantage of the Soviet defeat to enter the American mainstream and conquer it, until today its members occupy the White House."   David Horowitz 

In a review of Volume II, Barbara Kay describes it as a survey of the wreckage blotting the landscape of “progressivism,” a barrier island to Communism’s landmass:

Here we find the unbroken bridge linking Communism to the received wisdom of the vast majority of academics in the West, who download them into vulnerable students en masse. The Marxist vision that sustained Stalin’s supporters in the 1940s and 1950s is alive and well in the post-colonialist and identity obsessions of postmodern theorists. Utopians then, utopians still, Horowitz finds their vision of social justice is still attended by the same suppression of “incorrect” thought and speech, the same self-righteousness, the same illiberalism in dealing with critics and apostates that were – are – the hallmarks of Communism." 
 
As Leftist ideology bears a deep hatred for the Holy Trinity, His creation and the human norm it boils with an unquenchable desire for its annihilation through erasure of Western history and ongoing attempts by way of inhumane psychological bullying to erase the knowledge of the human soul made in the spiritual image of the One God in Three Persons.  It is here that Leftist preference for evil over good can be seen in its effort to make the knowledge that we are the image-bearers of God unknowable through indoctrination with Darwinism, psychological manipulation and terroristic bullying that ridicules and demeans the six day Genesis account in favor of "scientifically enlightened" God-less Darwinism. 

Increasingly, we are ridiculed and shamed if we publicly declare that Jesus Christ God Incarnate, heaven, eternally unchanging truth, moral law and the Biblically-based unalienable (God-given) rights  and enduring principles undergirding our Constitutional Republic are superior to socialism, Sharia, Wicca, paganism, Satanism, sodomy, lies, death and all other evils because good (the former) is biased against evil (the latter).  That's why we   cannot defend  and proclaim the inerrant Word of God, the six day Genesis account, His Moral Law, immutable truth, our souls and our right to life without being  ridiculed as anti-evolutionary science and anti-choice (abortion, euthanasia) morons, bigots, racists, homophobes and xenophobes because orthodox Christian faith is the antithesis of evil: 

"Why do you lay these troubles on an already troubled mind? Can you not see, your uncle is wearied by your...malcontent, your warmongering?"   (Grima Wormtongue-- consummate liberal, pathological liar and bully who hides behind his master Saruman---to Eomer, the valiant, virtuous defender of the good, true, righteous and life-affirming)                        

In the shriveled souls, hard-hearts and darkly disordered minds of Americas' legions of progressive Grimas and Saruman types,  there wouldn't be any evil if not for the good, thus  Grimas situated within every thought-and-moral shaping institution at every level of American society from the White House to the Supreme Court, Congress, academia, the music industry, media, seminaries, pulpits and Hollywood do the work of their father the devil in order to "right" this "wrong."  

As one example of this work,  the liberal 'legal watchdog' group, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, provided the legal muscle this year to get the Satanic Temple,
 
"....prime real estate for its display alongside several others’ at the state capitol’s rotunda." (FL state capital OKs Satanic Christmas display, Michael F. Haverluck, OneNewsNow, December 15, 2014 
 
NewsBusters reporter Tianna DeMartino exposes another example of Grimas' evil-doing.  In "Reminder to Christians: Seth McFarlane hates you. Merry Christmas!" DeMartino reports that McFarlane, 
 
 "... the liberal atheist behind “Family Guy,” seems to be feeling especially spiteful this Christmas, going above and beyond the usual sacrilege....The fall finale which aired Dec. 7 on Fox, was titled “The 2000 Year-Old Virgin.” In the episode Peter and his wife Lois find Jesus at the mall; still in Quahog because Jesus and His father God don’t get along. Jesus tells Peter he “can’t deal with [His] family during the holiday.” Besides, even if Jesus did get along with God they couldn’t spend the holiday together anyway because “[His] Dad always spends Christmas at his time share … with His girlfriend.” (God appears in a scene on vacation with his scantily clad girlfriend mocking an adult handicapped child whose parents sarcastically thank him for the “test” God gave them.)"  (Family Guy’ Christmas: ‘The 2000 Year-Old Virgin,’ News Busters, December 8, 2014) 

While Christians in the Middle East are daily brutalized, raped, tortured and crucified and their children cut in half and beheaded, what are the main concerns of Americas' mainstream media Grimas?  The plight of poor, misunderstood, unfairly treated welfare careerists, sodomites, cop-killers, illegals and lawless elements rampaging through our streets, burning and looting as they go.

 Look around and ask yourselves, "what is most loved and most hated" in liberal controlled and dominated America?  

On the hate list: the Holy Trinity, the inerrant Word of God with particular emphasis on the six day Genesis account, Original Sin, immutable truth and moral law, heaven, hell, judgment. 

On the liberal love list: God-less Darwinism and continuous change issuing in meaninglessness and purposelessness, a license for the following: pathological lying, treachery, criminal behavior, Satanists, murderous jihadis, ISIS, sodomy, lesbianism, transgender, pornography, illegals, Baphomet, the Satanic Temple, cop-killers, God-hating mass-murderers like Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin, and unending death for our Constitutional Republic and nonhumans and plague species:

  1."Saying homo sapiens are a 'plague species,' the London Zoo opened a new exhibit featuring--eight humans.  We have set up this exhibit to highlight the spread of man as a plague species and to communicate the importance of man's place in the planet's ecosystem."  (Human Beings: Plague Species; WorldNet Daily, 2005)

2."Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs."  (Earth First! Journal editor John Daily)

3."To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world population problem." (Yale professor Lamont Cole)

4."The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States." (Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund)

5."Until such time as homo sapiens decide to rejoin nature, (we) can only hope for the right virus to come along."  (David Graber, research biologist with the National Park Service)

6."Nonpersons or potential persons cannot be wronged…because death does not deprive them of something they value."  (John Harris, Sir David Alliance professor of bioethics, University of Manchester, England)   
 
On the Need to Eliminate Human Weeds and Other Evil Schemes  

1."In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would fill the bill.  All these dangers are caused by human intervention…the real enemy…is humanity itself."  (The First Global Revolution, published by the Club of Rome)  

Note: The Club of Rome bills itself as a global think tank.  It is comprised of Grimas and Saruman types: liberal scientists, economists, businessmen, international high civil servants, university presidents, members of parliament, heads of state, and former heads of state from all five continents.  They describe themselves as people who believe that the future of humankind is not determined once and for all.  This is code for evolutionary ascent from inert chemicals to primordial life to ape-like hominids and then human life to trans-human (something more highly evolved than mere human) and finally---godhood.  

2."In Guyana, within 2 years, it (DDT) had almost eliminated malaria…my chief quarrel with DDT…is that it has greatly added to the population problem."  (Alexander King, former president of the Club of Rome)  

Note:  In the 60's, a group of depopulation environmentalists conspired to have DDT banned from being used to control mosquitoes and malaria.  The subsequent banning resulted in millions of deaths.  One source estimates the death total as 500 million.  

3."I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing.  There are others…If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate…without making the world too full…the state of affairs might be unpleasant but what of it?  Really high-minded people are indifferent to suffering, especially that of others."  (Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society)  

Note:  Although they've not managed to spread the Black Death, they have managed to ignite a similar worldwide conflagration of STDS and AIDS.  Keep in mind that it's progressive liberals and their international cohorts who preach and pave the way for the gospel of ''salvation and redemption by sex."  What they don't want you to know is that it's really the environment (Gaia) that they are trying to save from the human plague. The idea here is that through unrestrained libido, sexually-enslaved human weeds will become diseased, sterile, psychologically damaged, and die earlier rather than later.  

Ask yourselves why there has been no logical response to this plague.  Why for instance, has there been a pronounced furtherance of unrestrained fornication, sodomy, lesbianism, and sado-masochism rather than a call for abstinence?   And in the face of mounting death totals (468,000 dead from AIDs since 1981), why do they continue to teach your children to engage in the very behaviors which they know to be the cause of psychological disorder and death?  The CDC (2002) reports that 16,000 deaths from AIDs occur annually. Another 40,000 new cases of infection occur within the same time frame.  There are 1 million cases of HIV, 31-50 million of herpes simplex, 24 million of HPV, and 1 million cases of chronic hepatitis B.  

Now connect the dots between the Aids and STDs devastations and the 610 million plus surgically and chemically induced abortions between 1965-1996 (American Life League).  It  appears that under the guiding hand of Grimas and Saruman types that America is on the fast-track of demographic suicide.  

According to Grima and Saruman, how many nonhumans should be allowed to exist?    

1."The total world population should be no more than 2 billion rather than the current 5.6 billion."  (Cornell University professor David Pimentel, speaking before the American Assoc. for the Advancement of Science)

2."The damage people cause is a function of demographics…One American burdens the earth much more than 20 Bangladeshes…In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day."  (Jacques Cousteau, the UNESCO Courier, Nov. 1991)

3."Cut the population by 90%"  (Dr. Sam Keen, Gorbachev Conference in San Francisco)

The Evil Religion of Environmentalism   

In speaking before the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Sept. 15, 2003, Michael Crichton told his audience,

"...certain human social structures…can't be eliminated from society.  One of those…is religion.  Today it is said we live in a secular society in which…the best people, the most enlightened…do not believe in any religion.  But…you cannot eliminate religion from the psyche of mankind…suppress it in one form; it…re-emerges in another form.  Today, one of the most powerful religions in the Western World is environmentalism."  

Self-deifying liberalism, pleasure-seeking hedonism, and environmentalism (pagan worship of creation) in conjunction with Darwinism (the scientism that validates this lethal brew) and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies are the core elements comprising the most intrinsically evil religion ever known to mankind.  In its' guise as Marxist Communism this evil religious worldview is condemned by Stephane Courtois (The Black Book of Communism) as a criminal ideology that attracts narcissists and diabolical psychopaths such as Lenin, Stalin and Mao.  And unless we can arrest it, as Winston Churchill declared, it will "shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible."   
 

Liberalism is a theology of demons, hence the psychology of the hell-bound, and though most people who vote for liberals don't embrace this psychology, they can be persuaded  and seduced by lying, evil-minded Grimas to embrace it by disguising its' ill-will and evil intentions as enlightened science, reason, forward thinking, change, compassion, fairness, diversity, inclusion, equality, multiculturalism, and global cooling, warming or change (whatever works). 

It is said that courage is the first of the virtues because without it we will cower before and submit to the wrath, psychological bullying and lies of liberals.   According to the OT prophet Isaiah, those who fear the wrath of liberals--- who are destined to die and go into hell---have forgotten the Lord.  Liberal opposition to the Holy Trinity will not and cannot last, nor is liberal wrath anything when compared to Divine wrath:

"...So have no fear of them...do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.  Rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell...."    For all of the faithful and orthodox who confess and repent of their sin and acknowledge their Savior Jesus Christ God Incarnate before men He "will also acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven."   Matthew 10: 26-32

Margaret Sangers' Malignant Gospel of Redemption and Salvation

Although no shots have been fired as yet, a fierce battle is nonetheless being waged for the hearts and souls of Americans. The combatants, locked in a life-or-death struggle, are two antithetical worldviews. On one side is America's traditional Christian-based worldview, selected by our Founders as the moral rock on which to anchor our Republic. First among its principles is the sanctity of life firmly grounded on  the unique concept of man as the spiritual image-bearer of the Holy Trinity.   This historically unique concept gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," an absolute necessity if individual liberty and equality before the law are to exist.  All together this concept is,

"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, Vishal Mangalwadi, pp. 12-13)

The second combatant is a malevolent alien to our shores. It is based in arrested emotional development, malignant envy, wrath, and dark fantasies of impossible equality made possible by the dehumanization of man:

"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)

David Horowitz said of this combatant that it bears a,

 "...deep hatred for the human norm and an unquenchable desire for its annihilation…the inhumanity of the radical ambition was what made the Communist epoch so consummate in its evil…an agenda whose aim is to erase the human past and remake the human soul." (The Politics of Bad Faith; www.discoverthenetwork.org).

Though this malevolent worldview wraps itself in an egocentric banner of reason and evolutionary science, it is in actuality a system of extreme, hard-edged narcissism, moral imbecility, sophistry and inhumane philosophy, which functionally speaking, serves as a religion. This religion, were it given a name, would be called Evolutionary Humanism or Religious Naturalism.

As all religiously held belief systems do, it informs us of who our creator is (spontaneously generated or eternally existing matter) and how we were created (evolution: the universal life force). It tells us who we are: soulless, slightly smarter human apes, lacking both free will and morally informed conscience. It relates to us the story of what went wrong with us and the world (an incompetent Creator, a Gnostic Demiurge). In the humanist version, we are told that the human ape species was originally naturally good (Gospel of Rousseau), and the source of evil by which we became oppressed and unconscious of our inner divinity (the fall) lies within the Genesis account of creation and our traditional Biblical-based social institutions (Gospel of Rousseau). This is simply a euphemistic way of saying that the Holy Trinity, His Creation, Original Sin, laws, and social institutions are sources of evil.

Finally, as religions are wont to do, it tells us through a plan of redemption and salvation what must be done to redeem the fallen world and human apes. In the humanist version, all power and authority must be collectivized and placed into the hands of god-like Gnostic pagan elites, the "chosen ones" who possess infinite intellectual powers and will actualize the plan of salvation. This will lead to the creation of an earthly paradise (Kingdom of Man) populated with the New Man (bio-machine), the scientifically engineered Frankenstein monster of the elites.

There are a variety of evolutionary humanisms or "liberation ideologies," and all of them are variations on a theme:  history ascends in a series of evolutionary stages, and as each stage ends, its' social institutions and mores must be shed…as a reptile sheds its old skin…lest the old ways impede evolutionary progress towards perfection. This myth was dubbed the "Escalator Myth" by British philosopher Mary Midgley.

Also dubbed the "myth of progress," or "change," the Escalator Myth,

"...is a secularization of the Christian teaching of divine providence."  (How Now Shall We Live? Charles Colson and Nancy Pearcey, p. 232)

All liberation ideologies are grounded in religious naturalism, evolutionary biology (common descent from primordial blob) and evolutionary cosmologies.  Whereas faithful, orthodox Christianity teaches that the Trinity is the author and finisher of history-- which is moving towards the Kingdom of God--- that the Bible is God's plan of redemption and salvation, and that fallen man can only be saved through the grace of Jesus Christ, in contrast, the Escalator Myth teaches that we are evolving towards a utopian paradise on earth, a Kingdom of Man which will be created through the godlike ingenuity of scientifically enlightened elites.

"Moderns are dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good."  T.S. Eliot

The humanist plan of redemption and salvation is contained within various 'gospels' written by 'elite' trans-humans who are revered as 'enlightened' voices of science (the new Bible) and divine reason. Among these worshipped notables are Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Francis Galton, Darwin, Herbert Spencer, Karl Marx, Engels, Hegel, Teilhard de Chardin, Alfred Kinsey, and Margaret Sanger.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, preached a salvation doctrine that advocated both sexual libertinism and abortion and damned Original Sin, "He created them male and female" (Gen. 5:2),  Christian morality and all God ordained norms and institutions. She believed that if society would jettison the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo as well as the moral constraints and prohibitions which prevent the release of pent-up inner energies most of societies larger evils would disappear. To a female whose morals were those of a tramp, any sort of sex, even that of adults rutting on children, is simply an act of releasing inner energies.

Complete freedom to fornicate, and now today, complete freedom to engage in sodomy and lesbianism coupled with complete freedom to prevent conception or to get rid of newly conceived human life was, according to the Gospel of Sanger, the shining path by which human nature could be transformed into a New Man. Sanger enthusiastically proclaimed that it is within the power of the 'chosen ones' to scientifically re-engineer the souls of human beings in order to create a New Man and a perfect civilization that would  "transmute and sublimate the everyday world into a realm of beauty and joy."

By Sangers' account, revolution consists of a struggle to liberate our bodies and minds from the shackles of the Holy Trinity and Biblical morality.  She adamantly opposed "the moralists" who preached abstinence, self-denial, and self-control and described Christian morality as "the cruel morality of self-denial, and sin."   Christian morality and sin must be thrown down, crushed, and replaced with sexual liberation.  According to Sanger, only through release of sexual energies can a person find "inner peace and security and beauty."  Moreover, release of sexual energy is the only method for overcoming social ills. (ibid, p. 238)

The redemptive power of unrestrained libido, by Sanger's reckoning, would make man godlike. Through the "release and channeling of the primordial inner energies of man" men and women can evolve into geniuses. In this twisted version of the Garden of Eden story, it's not the fruit of the tree that makes us godlike; it's the release of sexual energies. (ibid)

Another preacher of Sanger's Gospel is Robert Rimmer, author of "The Harrad Experiment" (1966). His book fueled the sexual liberation movement and was for an entire generation of college attendees recommended reading in courses dealing with marriage and family. Like Sanger, Rimmer preached that promiscuity was the means for taking "one more step up the evolutionary ladder…for evolving into a new form of man or woman." Sex, he wrote, is "actually an act of worship." (ibid, p. 240)

Yet another contemporary of Sangers' is Mary Calderone, architect of sex education in all public schools and former director of the Sex Information and Education Council of the U.S. (SIECUS). In a 1968 article Calderone openly admitted the real agenda of sex educators when she wrote, "What kind (of person) do we want to produce to take the place of human nature as we know it today?" (ibid, p. 241)

In the Gospel of Sanger, complete sexual freedom was but one method for creating the New Man, elevating the 'chosen' to the status of genius, and creating paradise on earth. The other necessary step was in either preventing new life from being conceived or by getting rid of it once it had been conceived. This means sterilization, eugenics, and abortion, otherwise known as family planning.

The latter step serves two primary purposes in the evolutionist's scheme of things. The first revolves around preventing the birth of what Sanger termed "unfit" and "dysgenic" breeding stock. Among these were Italians, Jews, blacks, epileptics, the disabled, the diseased, mental defectives, and Catholics. Catholics were evil because they were staunch sanctity of life supporters. In the view of todays' sexual liberationists, all defenders of the Genesis account together with all sanctity of life supporters are considered to be evil fanatics, hateful bigots, homophobes, and mentally unbalanced anti-science superstitious morons.

The second purpose is really an act—it's the ultimate act of rebellion against the Holy Trinity, His inerrant Revealed Word and all that's true, virtuous, natural and decent.

"Unless we know ourselves to be full of pride, ambition, concupiscence, weakness, wretchedness and unrighteousness, we are truly blind." (Pensees, Pascal, p. 229)

Omnipotence, in the case of wretched, pride-inflated, truly blind, scientifically enlightened "elites" comes from having power over the Holy Trinity and His Revealed Word so as to give their own words the active force of the Triune Gods creative words. In this way, empowered god-men can unweave and refashion creation, human beings, Scripture, the family and society as needed.   They can decide who lives and who must die, what we may have or not have, as well as what we are allowed to know and not know. This is a sociopaths power trip.  

Sanger's malice-fueled megalomania was on display when she proclaimed,

"I believe…woman was enslaved by the world machine, by sex conventions, by motherhood and... child-rearing…by middle class morality, by customs, laws and superstitions."

 Only in the disordered mind of a malignant narcissist would it make sense to rebel against the Holy Trinity, his or her own inner person (soul/spirit), and society's norms by declaring a right to "be lazy," "to be an unmarried mother," "to destroy," "to create," "to love," and "to freely release inner energies." Her oxymoronic illogic can be restated as: "Libido dominandi is the path to glory."

In observance of the malevolence-and-murder fueled obsession of evolutionary "elites" with destroying the hated Christian-based order, re-engineering the soul of man and creating a paradise on earth David Horowitz wrote,

 "The century behind us is littered with the corpses of millions who died on the cross of such new worlds…the quest for a 'new man' and 'new woman' consumed the lives of entire nations." (The Politics of Bad Faith)

The systematic murder of millions of men, women, and children in the former Soviet Union was primarily facilitated by two things.  First by 'scientifically' animalizing  all people who were objects of hatred, resentment and envy.   This was achieved by application of the Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking that ultimately enabled Marxists to justify their monstrous crimes against humanity.   Second, by maliciously whipping up and enflaming the evil that resides in the hearts of the 'oppressed.'    In America, the 'oppressed' are mainly 'gays,' lesbians, non-conforming gender-free beings, Satanists, witches, pagans, illegals, certain people of 'color,' Muslims, criminals and pregnant women in need of liberation by way of abortion.

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

Sanger believed that abortion was a necessary and practical method for regulating the breeding stock of the next generation.   The evil initiated by Sanger has swollen into the murderous abomination known as the pro-choice movement.  (The Deadliest Monster, J.F. Baldwin, p. 191)

 According to American Life League, the total number of abortions in the U.S. from 1973 to 2011 is 54.5 million plus:

"These statistics include only surgical and medical abortions. Because many contraceptive measures are abortifacients (drugs that induce or cause abortions), it is important not to overlook the number of children killed by chemical abortions. Since 1965, an average of 11 million women have used abortifacient methods of birth control in the United States at any given time. Using formulas based on the way the birth control pill works, pharmacy experts project that about 14 million chemical abortions occur in the United States each year, providing a projected total of well in excess of 610 million chemical abortions between 1965 and 2009."  (Abortion, all.org)

Evil Ideas Unleash Evil into the World

At the end of WW II, dispirited atheist, communist, socialist, progressive and Christian thinkers began to analyze the crisis the war had precipitated and to reconstruct the civilization it had threatened.  Out of these efforts arose the "new conservative" or traditionalist wing of the postwar conservative intellectual movement in America. (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 30)
 
Their penetrating analysis of the ideas underlying and fueling communism and socialism such as the total immanent society (omnipotent, all-knowing society), Social Darwinism, positivism, rationalism, evolutionary naturalism, materialism, collectivism, atomistic liberalism and underlying them all, atheism, led many of them to declare that evil ideas working through the minds of men had ultimately unleashed the catastrophic evils that had enveloped much of the world.  Upon this realization many of them either returned or converted to faithful, orthodox  Christian theism.
 
For example, Douglas Hyde, an English ex-Communist and convert to Catholic Christianity emphatically declared:
 
"The sanest things on earth are those for which the allegedly reactive, unscientific, obscurantist Church stands and for which she is doing battle." (ibid, p. 52)
 
"Christianity is the most complete and perfect revelation of the nature of God and of God's will for man," wrote John Hallowell in 1950.  

Supernatural orthodox Christianity was the unifying thesis of Hallowell's interpretation of modern scientific/evolutionary  political philosophy:
 
"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insights we have into the nature of man and of the crisis in which we find ourselves.  That crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of a transcendent or spiritual reality and of his progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent conception of reality....Only through a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ, can modern man and his society find redemption from the tyranny of evil."  (ibid, p. 53)
 
The Christianity which Hallowell, Hyde and other early conservatives defended was not the liberal or modernist evolutionary Christianity of the Social Gospel and Gnostic immanent Protestantism. Nor would it be the evolutionary theism, progressive creationism or any of the myriad of twisted theology posing as Christianity today.  What early Conservatives proposed and defended was supernatural Christianity grounded in what for many early conservatives was the deepest, most terrifying lesson of WW II: the lesson of evil, of original sin:
 
"We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin," asserted Hallowell.  To Richard Weaver, no concept gave deeper insight into the "enigma that is man" than original sin.  Evil was not just a "bad dream" an "accident of history," or "the creation of a few antisocial men."   Evil is a "subtle, pervasive, protean force," and original sin was a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing."   (ibid, 53)
 
Eliseo Vivas concurred.   Inside every man and woman he said, lay "brutality" and a "natural tendency" to define value in his own interests (moral relativism). 

In "The Problem of Pain," C.S. Lewis observed,

"Man is now a horror to God and to himself…not because God made him so but because he has made himself so by the abuse of his free will…Evil comes from the abuse of free will."

In denying their own sin nature, bloody-handed evolutionary humanists have become the embodiment of the very thing they live in denial of. And this is why they have become horrors to both God and man.

"Intellectual Morons: How Ideology Makes Smart People Fall for Stupid Ideas" by Daniel J. Flynn  

Leading Sheep to Perdition through the Paganization of Scripture

In his hard-hitting piece, "Away with You Spineless Christians" Bill Muehlenberg  observes that interfaith fools do not have a clue that they are allowing pagan gods access to their own Christian houses of worship, in this case, the National Cathedral in Washington D.C which previously celebrated a "gay" marriage in proud demonstration of tolerance, diversity and open-mindedness.     In the latest episode of madness they thought it would be a neat idea to have Muslims come in and hold an Islamic prayer service there. The folks in charge there are simply duped dhimmis, and haven’t a clue what this signifies:

"Do they not know anything about Islam? Do they know nothing about the Shahada, one of the pillars of Islam? It is a prayer that professes there is only one God (Allah) and that Muhammad is his messenger. This is a direct, unilateral assault on the very heart and soul of the Christian faith: that Jesus Christ is God’s son, and the only way to the Father." (Away With You Spineless Christian Men, Muehlenberg, barbwire.com, Nov. 17, 2014)

The celebration of science, evolution, sodomy, lesbianism, reimagining conferences and pagan gods by Christian theologians who really aren't Christians demonstrates that the fall (apostasy) of the Christian Church that began at least two-hundred years ago continues toward fullness into our own time.

"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. " (Genesis 6:5–8)            

In his superb treatise, "Against the Heathens" early Church Father Athanasius outlines the incremental fall of antediluvians that provides continuity with and application to our own time.  He notes that the fall of antediluvians into paganism and idolatry began with pride and haughtiness. A haughty spirit led them to make light of  the higher things of the Trinity, and deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began to seek in preference things in the lower or natural dimension. Thus they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and other appetites, and acquisition of status and things to the living, personal Trinity and His higher knowledge.

The truth as to evil said Athanasius,

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

Having descended into delusion and superstition they imagined they had neither souls nor free will and further that all that exists is the natural dimension — a divine One Substance, watery abyss, void, primordial matter, animated natural powers, forces, and deterministic laws, all of which they celebrated and attributed miraculous powers to. So for example, with the Egyptians' self-created Sun-God Ra, the divine abyss or One Substance out of which he evolved is Nu — primordial matter:

"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)

This is naturalism, which is the belief that all that exists is the natural dimension, thus evolutionary naturalist Dr. Scott Todd wrote in the science journal 'Nature:'

"Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such a hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic." (Naturalism in the Light of Reality, Robert Gurney, creation.com, June 14, 2012)

The atheistic (pagan) formula for evolution boils down to:  

Evolution (unseen life-making energy) working on matter over billions of years of time caused life by chance (unseen power) to emerge from chemicals after which natural selection  (unseen choice-making power) was set in motion.

In the theistic evolutionary view (paganism dressed up in Christian language and motifs) brought into seminaries around the turn of the century, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo is rejected in order that God can be integrated into naturalistic philosophy, not as omnipotent Lord of all things, but as an impotent enabler of evolution.

 The deluded theistic evolutionist generally believes in an old Earth, billions of years old plus wholly natural processes being responsible for life once initial matter was created (Big Bang/Cosmic Egg) by an impotent God controlled and shaped by evolutionary theologians who reinterpret the Word of God wherever it contradicts their naturalistic evolutionary worldview.   According to evolutionary theologians, as the Word of God contains no relevant ideas applicable to origins science then science and evolutionary speculations have priority over the Bible.   In this way, arrogant, defiant evolutionary theologians (haughty spirits) are paganizing the Christian Church as Michael Dowd, who describes himself as an evolutionary "Christian" confesses:

 "I’m not creating a new religion I’m trying to secularize or naturalize the existing ones.I’m not trying to get religous people to accept evolution so much as I’m trying to get them to give up supernaturalism and wholeheartedly and passionately embrace big history."  ("Evolutionary Christianity," whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com, 2011) 

 No, having descended into superstition, paganism and idolatry the deluded Dowd and like-minded theologians are not creating a new religion but rather paganizing the Way, the Truth, and the Life thereby leading unwitting sheep to perdition.

Americas' Ruling Class: We have said in our hearts," we are gods"

"Exalting mankind to the status of deity...dates from the farthest 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, Herbert Schlossberg, pp. 40-41)

Noted historian Arnold Toynbee concurs. After studying civilizations across the whole span of history, Toynbee concluded that the paramount religion of mankind is self-worship...of man as god. Tal Brooke also agrees, noting that historically there has always been an exoteric polytheism-pantheism for the general masses and a high level esoteric "advaitic" monism for the higher initiate. For initiates then:

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

The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylon as the post-flood center both of an organized religion based on the primordial heresy and as the first utopian or heaven on earth project. Babylon embraced the Great Lie. Its inhabitants claimed the title, "I AM." They were earmarked by their evolutionary cosmology, advaitic monism, science of magic-transformism, exalted priesthood, gnosis, secret initiations, sorcery, astrology, channeling, psychic-powers, familiar spirits, and hedonism. But the root source of this evil religion and its occult power was the Great Dragon himself....Satan.

Isaiah describes the rebellion and fall of Lucifer, who exalted himself above the Trinity,  as occurring prior to the fall of Adam and Eve, who were  later seduced by the fallen Lucifer (Satan) with the promise of becoming like God:

"For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation....I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the most High." (Isaiah 14:13-14)

Satan does not have a body and heart of flesh as we do.  So where is the sin of Satan as he fell?  "Thou hast said in thine heart."   Satan's rebellion, like that of Adam and Eve is internal, meaning within the unseen realm of spirit-- thought-life, conscience and will.   The point here is that it was from the inside, the thought life, that something external--sin/evil--was made, first by Satan, then by Adam and Eve.  From the inside outward sin/evil was made then just as continues to be made into our own time.

With respect to the Holy Trinity of life and creation, Scripture tells us He is spirit.  He is not corporeal, but He is personal and infinite.  He thinks, He acts, He feels in His love.  In the area of creation the Triune God thought, then spoke, and a real external world was.   The Trinity thought, the Trinity spoke and said, "Let us make man in our image" and man was. (Gen. 1:26) 

Reality (life, conscious life, matter, energy, time, laws)  was in the thought of the Trinity before being brought forth by the immediate power of His spoken Word, His creative fiat as the inner (unseen) and external (seen) world. (True Spirituality, Francis Schaeffer.

The point is that the creative power of the thought of the Trinity preceded all else and the ridiculous idea that He created a Cosmic Egg, then exploded it and utilized evolution over billions of years is yet another example of the inside outward rebellion of sinful man in his arrogant exaltation of self above the Trinity. 

 All of this is parallel to what the Bible, the inspired, written Word of God says about man made in the image of the Trinity.  For  the Trinity, as for man and Angelic beings, both righteous and fallen, the internal thought-life precedes and causes the external.   Putting this together, we find that the Trinity thinks, then speaks and brings forth the external world out of nothing that previously existed.  However, as Angels and men are finite created beings, they cannot create from nothing, and when in their rebellious disobedience Satan, Adam, and Eve 'thought' their external words and actions brought forth evil, and brought it forth as a true first cause:

 "And each one of us, too, created in the image of God, is a true first cause."   (True Spirituality, Francis Schaeffer, pp. 103-104) 

Modern Satanic Revolt: We have said in our hearts, "we are gods"

"Thou hast said in thine heart" our war is against the Trinity and the world created by Him, declared Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto. In his poem, "The Pale Maiden"  Marx admits that from the power of his thought proceeds rebellion against God and from his will--- eternal Hell for his immortal soul:

"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 progressive Satanic revolt that fueled Marxist Communism fuels its' Western secular elite counterpart.  Underlying both Marxist Communism and secular elitism is a foundation of evolutionary neo-paganism and mystical pantheism (naturalism/nihilism), thus it is not the personal Trinity who has created the world.  No, it is the will and power of the thought of each evolved man-god who creates his, her or its' (i.e., 'gay' or nonconforming gender queer being) own world and meaning in every living moment out of his/her/its own conscious thought.  In other words, the willful denial of the Holy Triune Creator and His authority allows God-hating man-gods to assume the mantle of self-divinization and the unlimited power of thought and will that goes along with it, to destroy and remake human beings and the existing world within the thought-life of each man-god.  This means that reality is not external but rather within the delusional, paranoid, envy-bitten minds of man-gods. 

This delusional 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 religious, social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his despotic Party.   At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that,

“…in the end the Party would announce that two and 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.” (Orwell, “The New Spirituality and its Hallmarks, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 30:4-31:1, 2007, p. 19)

When the Thought Police agent O’Brien re-educates (psychologically tortures) Winston for “wrong thought” he states,

We control matter because we control the mind.  Reality is inside the skull.  You will learn by degrees, Winston.  There is nothing that we could not do.  Invisibility, levitation---anything.  I could float off this floor like a soap bubble if I wish to….You must get rid of these nineteenth-century ideas about the laws of Nature.  We make the laws of Nature.”

“But how can you control matter?” Winston asked. “You don’t even control the climate or the law of gravity. And there are disease, pain, death-”

O’Brien silenced him by a movement of the hand, saying you will learn-by degrees Winston. The Inner Party, now the Western secular elite Ruling Class, create reality because whatever  Elite man-gods think and speak is.   

This, tragically, is the mass delusion of all modern ruling class "elitists" and utopian ideologues who think, speak and voila! Science is the only knowledge worth knowing, evolution is a fact, Global Change is too and man is no longer strictly man but god, goddess, and gender nonconforming being too. 

 In the end, however,delusional ideology inevitably leads all of them to Hell---the place of fire and brimstone they are unable to un-think.

Americas "New" Man: Soulless Product of Abomination of Desolation

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

It was St. Peter Damian, a Doctor of the Church, who explained that the vice of sodomy “surpasses the enormity of all others,” because, “Without fail, it brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust: It leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind . . . It opens up Hell and closes the gates of Paradise . . . It is this vice that violates temperance, slays modesty, strangles chastity, and slaughters virginity . . . It defiles all things, sullies all things, pollutes all things . . . ” ("The Book of Gomorrah" cited by Melanson, La Salette Journey,  July 6, 2012)

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

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

Just as evolutionary theologians destroy certainty in the Revealed Word by trashing the Genesis account on behalf of science and evolution in the name of progress, Robinson describes the progressive turmoil and divisiveness ripping apart the Episcopal and Presbyterian churches on behalf of sodomy and lesbianism as “holy chaos.”   Holy chaos is confusion that represents “a step forward” from the certainty that most Christians felt when it came to what God and churches thought of homosexuals.” (ibid)

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

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

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

Nietzsche boasted that nihilist adherents of revolution and immorality,

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

Extremism–brazen egoistic arrogance—is one aspect of their magic. The other is the Lie—big lies, small lies, subtle lies, lies of omission, etc— which is all that is left when the Triune Gods eternally unchanging truth no longer exists. Nihilism, or objective meaninglessness, is the logical assumption if the living, personal transcendent Holy God does not exist.

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

If man is not God’s spiritual image-bearer, as nihilist simplifiers claim in the name of their corrupt science, then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ walked this earth:

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

Seraphim Rose, author of “Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age“ observes that nihilists scorn the Revealed Word, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo in particular, together with any thought or action concerned with sin, heaven and hell. Holding that only the natural dimension---the evolving universe of energy and matter---exists, nihilism reduces everything to its simplest foundations such as chemicals and the firing of neurons. More profoundly,

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

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

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

“… all expressions of individual identity in favor of an impersonal collective, communal consciousness.” (The Book that Made Your World, p. 74)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dr. Gonzalez concurs,

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

In other words, the “simplistic ideas” of nihilist simplifiers have successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism. With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.

Thus the deluded new man absolutely believes that he is the stuff of the future. This rootless, increasingly androgynous entity actually believes that he is evolving toward something higher.   In fact, transhumanists believe that they have already transcended, or evolved beyond mere humanity. But all of this is a great lie, a massive deception, said Rose:

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

The New Man is the product of an abomination of desolation consisting of naturalism, evolutionary cosmologies, science as the only acceptable knowledge, and nihilist philosophies solidified in mass delusion which have been working their way through our culture, embedding themselves, often unconsciously, within our psyches where they eventually effect a counter-conversion of souls. This means that in falling away from the living Triune God comes the reversal of conversion in which the soul ceases to live from the spirit and begins to live with the life of the body. The disordered passions thereby revived absorb the life of the person who spiritually dies resulting in the natural man of 2 Tim. 3:3. (St. Tikhon, Works II, as quoted in Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, p. 120)

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

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

The Evil Eye of Envy & Americas' Progressive Ruling Class

In "Another Week In Obama’s War On America" Don Feder notes that Obama isn’t at war with ISIS, the Taliban or the Muslim Brotherhood. He’s at war with the Constitution, the middle class, and, ultimately, with America:

"For our president, the 2014 election was liberating. There’s no longer a need to pretend, for the sake of his party, that he feels anything but contempt for the nation he was elected to govern. "  (barbwire.com, Dec. 2, 2014)

Last week was typical said Feder. On Monday, after a grand jury refused to indict Officer Darren Wilson for acting in self-defense, a mob once again rampaged in Ferguson, Missouri. After mouthing a regulation-issue call for calm, the president used the mayhem to push his racist/redistributionist agenda:

"While there’s no excuse for violence, “we have to understand” the rage of the lynch mob, the leader of the free world told us. “We need to recognize that the situation in Ferguson (black businesses burned to the ground) speaks to the broader problems that we still face as a nation” – like having a president who condones anarchy?"

Feder observes that tribalism is okay when it’s the Ferguson mob demanding color-coded justice, but not for a majority of Americans, of all races, who insist that everyone obey the law and that people who want to live in America actually become Americans:

"Obama is using “executive amnesty” to help obliterate our national identity. He wants more and more people living and voting in America who don’t speak English, who don’t know our history, who care nothing for our traditions, and who don’t identify with America. If they were Muslims too, it would be perfect. But he can’t have everything. Providing illegals with services is also essential, to make them docile clients of the welfare state."

Obama and like-minded progressives could fix what is wrong with America if it weren't for the stupidity of bigoted American voters:

"Obama thinks the middle class is ignorant and bigoted – a bunch of honky hicks despising people who don’t look like them, while they cling to their guns and outmoded churches."

While faithful and orthodox Christians and Jews pray to the Holy God who created man in His own spiritual image, like all ruling class progressives Obama prays to himself as a savior of the planet and shaper of mankind in his own image. (The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It,Angelo Codevilla, p. xix) 

Because progressive power elites elevate science and evolution above the Revelation of God and reject creation ex nihilo in favor of pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies they are enabled to look down upon the hated "masses" and view them not as people but as evolved apish, grunting hominids, so naturally they believe Americans are completely unfit to run their own lives.

Moreover, as transcendent morality and unchanging truth are anathema to them then lying, sophistry and other forms of deception are entirely within reason. According to Codevilla, since no,

"....standard of right and wrong (is) 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." (ibid, p. xx)

As the Holy Triune God is dead in the hearts of the progressive ruling class so too is His Moral Law and immutable Truth, making Big Lies, sophistry, propaganda of the lie and all other forms of deception entirely within reason for attainment of desired ends. 

It is God Himself Who tells us what is wrong with the thinking, words and actions of the progressive ruling class:

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"  Jeremiah 17:9, KJV

Out of the rebellious, God-hating hence unregenerate spirit (heart or disordered thought life, polluted conscience, will turned toward evil) proceed,

"evil thoughts, murders, adulteries fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: these are the things which defile a man..."   (Matthew 15: 17-20)

Compare this with 1 John 3:15:  "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer."

In other words, and particularly in relation to morals, the thought life (spirit) is what's wrong.  It begins with the inner life of mind, it is vanity of the darkened mind from which evil proceeds.

In Ephesians 4:18 we are provided the reason for this: 

"Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness (hardness) of their hearts."  (True Spirituality, Francis Schaeffer)

In this light we can see that the examples of disordered, inverted thinking provided by Feder proceed from a darkened thought life, depraved conscience and will turned toward evil.   At a fundamental level, the common point of departure underlying each example is that most cold-blooded, malicious and murderous sin of all: envy.

Envy is not an emotion but a poisonous and fanged serpentine creature of thought, depraved conscience and will.  Envy is not a spur of the moment outburst but rather proceeds from cold-blooded calculation that says, "if it weren't for you I wouldn't suffer the gnawing pangs of envy"  and "I hate you because you are you and I am not."  

Envy then is spiritual warfare manifest in psychological bullying tactics such as cruel ridicule, character assassination, destructive criticism, labeling (i.e., bigot, racist, homophobe, creationist conservative, traditionalist), spreading lies and accusations of mental illness:

"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, Jan. 26, 2005, edwatch.org) 

Scripture provides many examples of the murderous intent and end of envy: Cain and Abel and Judas, the Pharisees and Jesus Christ.

Returning to Feder's examples: each one is a calculated response to envy provided by the envy-bitten.   For example, the demand made by the burning Evil Eye focused upon straight males and females which proceeds from "gays," lesbians and transgenders is the teaching of perverse sex education by males in dresses to the children of straight people, "gay" marriage, genderless restrooms, and eradication of gender specific words such as mother and father.

A wicked will and depraved conscience, especially when fueled by murderous envy, are the most destructive, totalitarian and murderous forces in any society.  It is only within this context that we can understand why our once family and decency centered Christian-grounded culture of life, moral order and freedom increasingly resembles both Sodom and decadent Rome in its death throes where every man, from king to slave had as many masters as he had vices (sins).

Revering the Dark Side: Americas Wicked Secular Power Elite

“Political Correctness” is a euphemism for the silencing tactics of power elites who are pushing power-consolidating agendas. It works by isolating and marginalizing anybody who might get in the way of those agendas, through smears and threats and psychological manipulation. I think it’s critical that each and every one of us build awareness of those tactics — as well as an understanding of our own human weaknesses — so that we can keep ourselves and our minds free. Free speech is a use-it-or-lose-it proposition. If we don’t push back, we will lose it. The protesters will lose their freedom as well, though, sadly, they don’t realize that."  (Follow up about the Disruption of Speech at Catholic U, stellamorabito.net, Nov. 28,2014) 

Faithful Christians are not to be conformed to the world but rather remain apart from it lest they become polluted by the world system.  This command of God to His people is at the foundation of and key strategy behind political correctness (aka consensus process). The key strategy is fueled by the knowledge that all people have an inherent fear of being alienated from the group. During sensitivity-training and diversity-training sessions for example, skillful change-agents (morally compromised facilitators) psychologically manipulate this fear to herd selected victims (i.e., faithful, orthodox Christians)  toward a preplanned conclusion (i.e., acceptance of science and evolutionary theory in place of the Gen. account ex nihilo as well as acceptance of "gay" marriage) into compromise of both conscience and  orthodox position. This is political correctness or the consensus process in a nut shell, and when we hear secular power elites---mouthpieces for the devil--- and their evil-minded liberal counterparts screaming for 'consensus,' they're really demanding that they be allowed to 'facilitate' the compromise of conscience and position that leads to the abandonment of what the Holy Triune God said for what man said as well as the Christian-based Western ideals and principles at the foundation of our Constitutional Republic.

There are three steps to the consensus process. They are called, "Unfreezing the present level, moving to the new level, and freezing group life on the new level." In order to speed up the unfreezing phase, communist shock-troopers of evil resorted to physical torture, shock 'therapy,' and mind-altering drugs. In America, secular pagan sadists precipitate emotional pain, intimidation, and fear by way of psychological bullying tactics such as cruel ridicule, character assassination, destructive criticism, labeling (i.e., bigot, racist, homophobe, creationist conservative, traditionalist), spreading lies and accusations of mental illness:

"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, Jan. 26, 2005, edwatch.org)

Science, mystical evolution, and hedonistic materialism are core elements of the hellish worldview of America's secular "power elites."  At its' core is the assertion that everything that exists is energized matter.   Whether matter and energy are held to be eternally existing or spontaneously generated (Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) matters not since the common point of departure for all worldviews grounded in matter and energy is metaphysical nihilism,

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

According to Stephen Greenblatt, Pulitzer Prize winning author of the "The Swerve: How the World became Modern," metaphysical nihilism is a reason­able price to pay to keep us,

“...from a preoccupation with angels and demons” and to focus on things in this world; it will free us “to construct experiments without fearing that one is infringing on God’s jealously guarded secrets” and to engage in inquiry without dogmatic restrictions; and to live an ethical life without dread of eternal punishment. It protects us against the dangers and disappointments of longing and love by insisting on Epicurean repose and renunciation. Mostly, it distracts us from considerations of death, the reflection on which and the fear of which makes us do crazy things."  (Swerving Towards Modernism, Jeffrey Polet, The Imaginative Conservative, Nov. 2014) 

However, by the inner logic of metaphysical nihilism, "reality" is non-self, meaning that secular power elites and their disciples are walking dead bodies that nevertheless speak. It is this "reality" of nothingness that supposedly liberates them.  As it was for murderous 20th century communist and fascist totalitarians, so it is for todays' neo-pagan and mystical pantheist secularists that metaphysical nihilism and the dehumanization of 'other' that takes place in darkened minds and wills turned toward evil is liberating, at least during younger years when death is not yet a blip on the radar. This is because for the uncreated, liberated, autonomous yet non-existent 'self' that is paradoxically the measure of all things and whose life no longer has any ultimate meaning or purpose there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why, by extension of this evil reasoning, the perverted and murderous should not do what they want to do. But the nihilism, egotism, lying, perverse license, and sadistic pleasure attained through psychological terror, domination and manipulation of dehumanized 'dupes' and their children, all of which the evil rejoice in during their younger years becomes an unbearable source of despair, horror, night terrors, dread-inducing sensations of standing atop a bottomless void, and thoughts of murder and suicide with the advent of old age and the approach of death.   

In this light appear salient features of the power elites' psychology:  extreme narcissism, self-delusion, full-blown paranoia, moral imbecility, sophistry, and parasitism fueled by a will turned toward evil and a massively depraved conscience.

The depraved conscience is an unexamined conscience. 

In his Commentary on Psalm 33/2, 8, St. Augustine notes that a dirty house (depraved conscience) is the miserable condition of all whose inflexible pride makes them refuse to face their own conscience lest they be overwhelmed by the wickedness they find there. (Day by Day with Saint Augustine, Donald X. Burt, p. 107)

Thus secular elites and their evil-doing liberal followers are self-righteous narcissists who refuse to tolerate the knowledge of their own weaknesses, failings, and sinfulness.  Thus they constantly engage in sweeping the evidence of their own remarkably consistent sins under the rug of their conscience in order to preserve their carefully constructed glass-houses from which they throw stones, particularly at the resented righteous.  In their hypocrisy they refuse to see their own wickedness but clearly see and constantly carp upon, gossip about and point the finger of accusation at the weaknesses and failings of other people, especially those whom they resent.

Because secular elites and their liberal followers constantly fret about preservation of self-image they are hyper-sensitive to what others might think of them, thus they engage in an unceasing yet ultimately futile effort to maintain an outward appearance of moral purity and superiority.  Because of this they hate the light–---the light of true truth, moral law, virtues and goodness that not only expose them but penetrate their deceptions. 

A wicked will causes evil and suffering

Ultimately, a depraved conscience is the result of a strong will determined to have its’ own way, thus St. Augustine points to a wicked will as the cause of all evil and suffering. This is because its' evil companions are self-love, covetousness, envy and lust for power. Because the willfulness of the wicked will is so extraordinary and always accompanied by a lust for power idolatrous narcissists are more likely than most to gravitate to positions of power and influence within for example, academia, seminaries, politics, courts of law, and Hollywood. Thus empowered, the wicked will imposes itself upon other wills by overt or covert coercion solidified in psychological abuse and manipulation such as sensitivity training in order to destroy the spiritual virtues of others.  This evil is the result of envy.

When narcissism is so total that the conscience is seared and capacity for empathy and charity lost, the narcissist has descended into malignant narcissism.  Malignant narcissism negates restraints that result from empathy and charity.   This motivates them to not just dehumanize and scapegoat others but to spiritually and physically crucify them….to murder them.

By transferring their own wickedness onto others through projection and scapegoating, narcissists and malignant narcissists cause evil and suffering.  For example, when they acquire domination over their own families they create miniature totalitarian societies characterized by pathological lying, psychological manipulation and bullying, physical abuse, paranoia, confusion, fear, deception, isolation, suspicion, craziness, distrust, and rage.

Metaphysical Nihilism: Worldview from Hell

 Key elements of metaphysical nihilism are the following crazy-making ideas:

1. Only science counts as knowledge

2. Life has no origin or purpose other than pursuit of pleasure at any cost

3. All that exists is matter in motion making the Triune God Who created all things ex nihilo unacceptable

4. Complete rejection of Biblical dualism, that is, man as soul/spirit embedded within a body (matter) in favor of man as bio-machine, a non-self emergent product of evolution acting on matter.

5. The "factual" existence of a mystical universal life force (evolution)

 According to Angelo Codevilla, author of "The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It," while most Americans still pray to the Holy Triune God Who created all men in His spiritual image, Americas' idolatrous secular power elite:

...prays to themselves as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image..." (p. xix)

Because power elites elevate science and evolution above the Revelation of God and reject creation ex nihilo in favor of evolutionary materialism they are enabled to look down upon the hated "masses" and view them not as people but as apish, grunting hominids, so naturally they believe Americans are completely unfit to run their own lives.

Moreover, as transcendent morality and unchanging truth are anathema to them then lying, sophistry and other forms of deception are entirely within reason. According to Codevilla, since no,

"....standard of right and wrong (is) 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." (ibid, p. xx)

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"  Jeremiah 17:9, KJV

A wicked will and depraved conscience are the most destructive forces in any society.  It is only within this context that we can understand why our once family and decency centered Christian-grounded culture of life and moral order increasingly resembles both Sodom and Gomorrah and decadent Rome in its death throes.  

Our Americanized Sodom-Rome is animated by an inward spirit of negation (nihilism), wickedness, rebellion and scapegoating fueled by will to power and selfishness as highest virtue together with unabashed envy as cause celebre.  All of this corruption manifests in a politically correct legal license to oppress and repress (scapegoat and crucify) all who are the objects of resentment, hate and envy as well as for parasitic lifestyles, legalized sexual anarchy, plundering (thieving), subversion and perversion of youth, killing of inconvenient, unwanted human life and many other manifest evils.

 As a tyranny of envy (poneros) had  finally overtaken ancient Greek society, resulting in its degradation and implosion an exploration of Greek thought with regard to types of envy will prove enlightening.

The first type is 'zelos,' a kind of envy stirred up within both secular elite and liberals by any perceived superiority.  In the poem, 'Work and Days,' Isocrates presents the spirit of zelos as "with grim face and screaming voice, who delights in evil" and causes Decency and Respect to flee as is the situation in morally debauched Sodom America where young boys and girls are routinely groomed by sodomites, lesbians, pedophiles and pederasts to assuage unholy appetites and bloodthirsty Ferguson "protesters"  demand the blood of an innocent cop . (Envy and the Greeks: A Study of Human Behavior, Peter Walcot, pp. 2-3 from Death by Envy, Fr. George R. A. Aquaro, p. 12)

Zelos is also the spirit behind the 'murder' of the Christian God, the closing off of the supernatural dimension and the Way to Paradise with the requisite suppression of His Revelation to man, the miracle of Special Creation and Original Sin. Thus zelos is the lying, hateful, intolerant spirit behind the evolving universe of matter and energy as 'science.' 

Zelos animates gossip, slander, the politics of personal destruction, and sensitivity training. It demands redistribution of wealth, egalitarian sameness, androgyny, hiring quotas, same-sex marriage; gay, lesbian, criminal and terrorist rights; open borders, 'legalized' illegal immigration, and the mandated sexualization and perversion of our youth. Zelos is the spirit behind political correctness, hate crime laws, speech codes, multiculturalism, inclusion, tolerance, sensitivity, diversity, and socialism.

In its every crazy-making, murderous permutation Zelos is the spirit behind left-wing ideology and its' totalitarian fantasy:

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

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

Philotimia and hybris are next.   In Greek mythology, philotimia is narcissism, love of attention, self-affirmation and self-gratification while hybris is the arrogance, insolence, contempt, insult, shame , hatred and mistreatment of an envied other by a narcissist. In Greece, philotemia and hybris  were seen when the gods and their earthly counterparts punished subhumans for usurping their authority as well as when they struggled amongst themselves for positions of primacy.   Philotimia and hybris are the spirits behind the vicious psychological bullying, and other forms of mistreatment of hard-working tax-payers, faithful Christians, straight white conservatives, and Tea Partiers of every color and both sexes.   Philotimia/hybris is also the spirit animating the intolerant attitudes of evolutionary theologians toward defenders of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo. 

Phthonos is the fourth type of envy.  Phthonos seeks to deprive  envied 'other' of possessions, honor, status, and spiritual virtues through leveling down tactics such as redistribution of wealth, Obamacare, and gender-free pubic restrooms.  Phthonos is driven not just to ostracize and confiscate but to use terroristic force to take or deprive 'other' of whatever is envied.  Phthonos can drive a man (i.e., Cain) to murder his own brother and even to "kill" God (i.e., Nimrod, Karl Marx).

In Athens, the egalitarian, or leveling impulse, served to help relieve an envy-torn culture by leveling all men down.  This was enforced by character destruction and the threat of ostracism.

The fifth type of envy is vaskonia or Evil Eye (ophthalmos poneros, Satan) and means something even more malignant than phthonos.   Tolkien portrays vaskonia with the lidless burning eye of Sauron suspended between the twin horns of Barad Dur.   Vaskonia is malignant narcissism expressed as a type of witchcraft or evil spirit associated with the experience of envy, the malign touch or glance of which leaves a soiled imprint and implies instant victimization and death.   Vaskonia is sudden, meaning one wrong word, one wrong look on one's face, or the impulse of a moment is all it takes to become its' victim.

As ancient Greece had been engulfed by the spirit of envy,

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

As a whole, Scripture combines envy with hatred of one's brother, which means that there can be no love whatsoever where there is envy and hatred in one's heart.

The power elite refuse to accept their own sins and intellectual defects and their nihilist worldview from hell is a psychology of idolatry of self that, fueled by hatred of 'other' rationalizes a death cult.  During the twentieth century this murderous death cult was responsible for the brutal murders of in excess of 160,000,000 men, women, and children.

Power elites prefer their demonic neo-pagan and mystical pantheist cult beliefs to the Revealed Word of God, hence their contempt for Scripture requires a substitute: a new pagan and pantheist order that promises peace and plenty but delivers global enslavement and the death of billions of men, women, and children. 

 In conclusion, for more than fifty years the power elite and their secular liberal disciples have been deliberately demoralizing and debauching America and the church by way of psychological manipulation as well as sadistically bullying those who resist.   Collectively speaking, the power elite are a force for evil that reveres the dark side and pledges allegiance to a hell-born system of eternal damnation. 

Given the morally and doctrinally corrupted condition of much of the Christian Church and Christians themselves, unless we repent of our sins and ask for Gods' forgiveness and mercy, then total control of America will at some time in the future fall into the grasping hands of  demonized secular elites and psychological bullying as a means of power and domination will be dropped in favor of American Gulags, torture and murder.

Satanism & the Massive Delusion of America's Ruling Class

Obama's progressive friend, Erdogan of Turkey, wants Islam to rule the world, by infiltration and sabotage if possible, and by massive decapitation and slave-taking if the infidels don't surrender:

"In Sweden and France, there’s a good chance they will surrender and obviate the necessity for mass slaughter, but who knows?"   "Having said all that, Erdogan’s mythopoeic claim is genuinely important today -- not because it’s true, but because it represents the delusional world of increasing numbers of Muslims. Obama directly encourages this mass delusion by claiming that “The United States has been Muslim from the founding.’ Whether Our President shares Erdogan’s delusion, or whether he knows he is lying is always up for grabs with Obama. Make your own guess. As the man has said, “You know, sometimes I believe my own bullshit.” (A Fantasy-driven Muslim World can Never Become Modern, James Lewis, American Thinker, Nov. 29, 2014)

Lewis wonders if Obama shares Erdogan's delusion. Perhaps in part, but according to Angelo Codevilla, author of "The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It,"  Obama's delusion is of the mass delusion of the ruling class. 

Codevilla writes that while most Americans pray to the Holy Triune God Who created all men in His spiritual image, Americas' delusional Progressive god-men:

"...prays to themselves as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image..." (p. xix)

 Because the Ruling Class elevate science and evolution above the Revelation of God and reject creation ex nihilo in favor of Darwinism they are enabled to look down upon the hated "masses" and view them not as people but as apish, grunting hominids, so naturally they believe Americans are completely unfit to run their own lives.

Moreover, as morality and common sense are anathema to them, Codevilla notes that since any:

"....standard of right and wrong (is) 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." (ibid, p. xx)

To preserve its' delusional self-conception as highly evolved god-men, the self-worshipping Ruling Class long ago and with great stealth replaced the Holy Triune God with themselves, creation ex nihilo with neo-pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies, the Bible with scientism; faithful, orthodox priests with pseudo- priests of science such as the babbling sophist Richard Dawkins, and the First Commandment with "Thou shall worship no other God but the Ruling Class."

 Though the Ruling Class view themselves as morally pure and faultless, in reality their conscience is depraved, and a depraved conscience is the most destructive force in political, social, economic, and cultural life. This is because though the intellect remains intact, reason is warped and inverted, thus useless for pursuit of the good, the just and the true. In short, guided by a depraved conscience, reason is used to attain whatever is coveted, to punish and destroy whoever stands in the way,  and to preserve carefully constructed glass houses (delusional self-images) at any cost. This is sophistry.

In a penetrating analysis of sophistry, J. Budziszewski observes that the sophists' view of reality is paradoxical because it ultimately denies reality. Sophists are shock troopers of evil says Budziszewski, and according to their satanically-inverted view of reality:

"Man is the measure of all things, but man has no fixed nature. Man measures all things by his words, but words have no fixed meanings. Language is not an instrument for finding truth, but for changing it. Those who can master it, master all. It is a good creed for rogues, and commends itself to tyrants in every age." (What We Can't Not Know, Budziszewski, p. 167)

Sophistry as Religion of Evil

Sophistry is the evil religion of the depraved Ruling Class. Sophistry says autonomous man is a free-thinker, thus the maker of his own truth and morality even though sophistry denies the reality of truth, morality and man's inner person, that is, his soul/spirit.  It says that because man is the uncreated product of evolutionary forces he can unmake and then remake himself. Thus man is free to divinize himself as in days of old.  Moreover, males can be females and females can be males, or they can be androgynous, that is, transgender.

Sophistry's' favorite Scripture is "judge not." The only judgment is the judgment against moral judgment, creation ex nihilo and true conservative principles. The only sin is the idea that sin exists. The only truth is the idea that truth does not exist. Evil is the idea that evil exists. The greatest evil of all however, is to dissent against the Ruling Class.

Sophists are narcissist braggarts who love to boast of their reason, yet reason is actually escape from reason. By way of unreason, arrogant sophists claim that God is dead and evolutionary theory is absolutely true, but sophistry says words have no fixed meaning, thus there is neither true truth nor fixed meaning in sophistry. Therefore, the Triune God is not dead but rather evolutionary theory is, for as it must begin with either the spontaneous generation of something from nothing or something from magically self-created eternally existing matter, then evolutionary cosmologies and progressives are also nothing.

Sophistry is all the rage in contemporary America, even though it prefers longer, more intellectual sounding names to dupe the gullible. Thus for example, it calls itself postmodernism, epistemological relativism, antifoundationalism, pragmatism, situational ethics, sensitivity training, pluralism, secularism, multiculturalism, interfaith, evolutionary humanism, transhumanism, positivism, rationalism, and progressivism.  Peter Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan calls it Satanism:

"Satanism is an atheist philosophy using Satan as a symbol of pride, liberty, and individualism, as did many before us who would not accept the status quo....Since the universe is indifferent to us, we Satanists choose to establish our own subjective hierarchy of values with ourselves as highest among them. Thus atheism moves to what I call I­theism, where we are each our own "gods." We accept the full range of human emotions as healthy, from love to hate, noting both of those are uncommon extremes."  (Lessons from the Church of Satan, Alissa Wilkinson, Christianity Today, Nov. 10, 2014)

Seething Resentment, not Racism, Sets Ferguson on Fire

KMOV-TV reports that the majority of stores that were damaged or completely destroyed during Monday night's violent riots in Ferguson, Missouri were minority owned. (Most Businesses Destroyed in Ferguson Minority Owned, beitbart.com, 11/25/2014)

On site news cameras showed looters, that is thieves, smashing windows and doors and carrying armfuls of stolen property out of stores, many of them run by people of their own skin color, prior to burning the stores down.

There's really no mystery why mobs of black barbarians looted and destroyed stores run by people of their own skin color.  The barbarians have chosen a life of amoral parasitism and harbor seething resentment toward civilized people who work, support themselves, pay their bills, and raise their children to the best of their ability. 

In looting and destroying the stores of hard working people, parasitic barbarians sent them a message burning with hate and resentment.  It says in effect,

"this is what you get for making something of yourselves when we have not.  For being successful when we are not.  For earning respect when we have none.  For being civilized when we are not and for not living as we do in the sewer we occupy by choice."

Evolutionary Cosmologies & Unfettered Evil: the connections

In  “Made Peace With It” Before Aborting" Sarah Terzo quotes a pregnant Planned Parenthood worker who chose to kill her baby as saying the following:

"I felt this entity within me, flooding me with immense strength and love… While pregnant, there was also the feeling that I was never alone. I spent a lot of time lying on my bed with my hand on my belly letting the buzz of contentment vibrate through me (but) I am selfish and I know it. I want to travel the world and be a perpetual student. I know that, from my perspective, having a child would mean giving up many of my dreams, and until I am as joyful about the prospect of becoming a parent as I am about my other pursuits, I can’t give a child what he/she deserves" and though "I was amazed by the creation occurring within me. .…" I realized that having "an abortion is not always traumatic. If you can get beyond societal shame and expectation, you might find a message just waiting to be discovered. I never turned away from the fact that I would be ending a potential life. Facing and accepting this was the most important thing I could’ve done to prepare myself for my abortion....This might sound strange to some, but I actually talked with the being inside of me. I made peace with it. I knew that there was a reason for this pregnancy and it wasn’t about becoming a mother.”  (LifeNews.com, Nov. 21, 2014)

In the face of this shocking evil most Americans, and this includes large numbers of Christians, no longer know what to say because the Christian Church has for the most part, failed in its' duty to teach and defend the eternally unchanging Truth of God, His Moral Law (Ten Commandments), the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the fall and sin nature of all men and women and their desperate need of redemption and salvation.  Thus many Christians either do not know or are in denial of the highly uncomfortable truth that it is the unfettered sin nature---their own and that of other people--- that is responsible for America's growing tyranny of evil.  

So in the eyes of the Holy Triune God Who created man in His spiritual image, what are the primary sins of the woman who freely willed the murder of her baby?  To begin, the practice of abortion by both Christians and non-Christians,

"...is spiritual prostitution to an idol, defiles God's sanctuary and profanes His holy name. God alone is the Author of life and it is not the creature's prerogative to question the Creator's wisdom in bringing to life a fellow human being at conception. Whenever men disregard their Creator's wise judgment by destroying His innocent creation, they are serving another god. They are, in fact, spiritually prostituting themselves to the idolatrous self whom they believe is wiser in its value judgments." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)

Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image (Gen 9:5–6; ESV)

The Planned Parenthood worker is guilty of spiritually prostituting herself to idolatrous self (love of self; narcissism), and from ancient days such idolatry has led to abortion (murder) and all other forms of evil including lust for power over and domination of other people, property, and resources (ancient pagan despots; modern pagan Communists, Socialists, Progressives); unrelenting war in pursuit of these goals, speech control, shocking cruelty, deceit, treachery, sodomy, bestiality, pedophilia, pederasty, incest, slavery and individual and mass murder.  In our own time for instance, science has become the instrument of idolatrous man's will issuing in the elevation of science and evolutionary thinking above the Revealed Word of God.

Defiant science-adulating evolutionary theists and progressive creationists insist on displacing the Genesis account of creation by forcing the wildly popular Big Bang into the Bible, the inspired, written Word of God.   However, not only does the Big Bang not fit into the Bible but it also turns the Creator, Jesus Christ, into a liar, for He said that Adam and Eve were there "from the beginning of the creation" (Mark 10: 6; Gen. 1: 26-27) rather than several billion years after the beginning of creation as evolutionary speculators hold. 

For instance, when teaching about marriage, Jesus said that at the beginning of creation God:

 “made them male and female. … For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” So they are no longer two, but one(Mark 10:6–8).

Here Jesus quoted Genesis 1:27 and Genesis 2:24 about a real first man and first woman who were the first couple, and this is the basis for marriage between one man and one woman today.  Moreover, Adam (the first man) was the Holy God's spiritual image-bearer right from the start.  Evolution teaches instead that a whole population of humans eventually evolved from ape-like creatures.  Adam however, was fully person, fully man, fully embedded soul within flesh (body) right from the beginning, hence Church Father Tertullian condemns child sacrifice, saying that no matter how it is rationalized, it is still murder:

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

Evolutionary cosmologies are as ancient as the practices of men worshipping themselves as gods and of child sacrifice, sodomy, incest, and many other evils.  In fact, evolutionary thinking facilitates evil since if Darwin in particular and evolutionary thinking in general is right, then there was no fall so no sin nature and man is either a trousered ape or bio-machine.  As well, there is no ultimate fixed meaning or higher purpose to life except what we choose:

" You are born, you suffer, you die — that's it. Perhaps, if you're lucky, you may get recycled as organic manure — but beyond that, you're just a number that happened to come up in the great casino of the universe." (Darwin, Spurgeon and the 'black dog,' Carl Wieland, Creation.com)  

If man is nothing but an excited node of evolution in process of evolutionary ascent with neither hope of physical resurrection nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world, hence no fear of Judgment and hell,  then he is free to be evil.  So why not euthanize the elderly?  And why should Obama and his henchmen respect and abide by the Constitution rather than do whatever they want to do? Why should parents not allow their children to be taught evolutionary science, daily absorb the violent messages within most video games, rap music, and hard rock? And why ought children brought up on evolutionary science and violence not brutally attack each other and their parents?  Why should sexually-perverted adults not sexually pervert children, toss unwanted babies into trash bins, and use the force of perverted, meaningless law to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others? Why not redefine sodomy, pedophilia, pederasty, bestiality and lesbianism as 'gay' and then marry 'gay' couples in Washington's National Cathedral? (Washington National Cathedral to Wed Same-Sex Couples, Ben Brumfield, CNN, Jan. 9, 2013)

 And if you're the Planned Parenthood worker why not kill your unborn baby if its' life interferes with your selfish ambitions?   Among the idolatrous social elite of Punic Carthage for example, the institution of child sacrifice (murder) was a common practice and may have assisted in the consolidation and maintenance of family wealth, of eliciting favors from the gods, and as a convenient way of disposing of unwanted and illegitimately conceived babies.

In 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death on the altars of self-serving idolatrous men and women.

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

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

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

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

Throughout Western European and American society evolutionary thinking as 'evolutionary fact'  has finally reached saturation point in government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, the public arena and increasingly within the whole body of the Church, which is why pathological lying, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, mass murder, decadence, sodomy, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

All of this makes a devilish kind of sense if the personal Triune God Whose Living Words called all things into existence in six days of creation does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose since the evolving universe of matter and energy either created itself from nothing or was enabled toward this end by a god shaped and controlled by men as evolutionary theology posits. 

 Large numbers of Westerners both within and without the church now reject the Genesis account and believe instead that modern secular (neo-pagan and mystical pantheist) science has proven the earth and cosmos to be billions of years old, and that every living thing, from fish to dogs, apes and humans, evolved from a single cell which itself is the result of combination of chemicals.  Most believe that primordial matter resulted from the Big Bang. Certain high profile Christians like Pope Francis, Hugh Ross and the influential theologians and scholars who support them, teach that God is both the energizing force behind the Big Bang and the director of evolutionary process.

Moral Relativism

The Big Bang/ billions of years view results in a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else – maybe divine supermen, god-men, super robots or cosmic beings – but nothing can be said about transgender, 'gay,' and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by the inexplicable explosion of a Cosmic Egg which may or may not involve a stumbling god shaped and molded by theologians who require Him to ignite the Big Bang.  

Biomachines and Trousered Apes

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

 The denial of the literal and historic meaning of the Genesis account is foundationally the result of imposing neo-pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies (i.e., Big Bang) upon the Bible.' Thus, it has baneful consequences which don't just stop with Genesis, but adversely affect the entirety of Scripture and the entirety of Western and American society too. The atheist Frank Zindler enthusiastically agrees:

"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 savior. 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)

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned people have been pointing to the connections between evolutionary thinking and the spreading epidemic of narcissism, moral insanity, hatred, violence, despair, paranoia, madness, dark fantasies, psychosis and other spiritual pathologies together with the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn, the subversion and perversion of children, and the relentlessly rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use, crime, decadence, homicide and suicide in the 'evolutionized' West.

As Zindler rightly concludes, evolution is the death knell of Christianity, hence the death knell of the uniquely radical definition of man as person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons. From this it follows that evolution is also the death knell of our Constitutional Republic since our inalienable (God given) rights are for persons, not trousered apes or biomachines.

As the socially destructive consequences of evolution, moral relativism and unfettered sin reverberate throughout the church and society our age increasingly becomes an age of idolatrous worship of self, defiance against God and a spreading tyranny of evil as self-idolaters increasingly demand the sacrifice of other people, their children, property, rights and even their lives on altars of self-gratification.

Evolutionary Cosmologies: Religious Endeavor to become like God

Throughout the de-Christianized West and America neo-pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary reasoning is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience.  It not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic---and increasingly seminarian---disciplines as well. The West's amoral transnational elite Gnostics, the "chosen" ones, are particularly enamored of evolutionary reasoning:

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

Evolution: what is it?

"Evolution has always been a fundamentally spiritual concept.  In fact, some of the first thinkers to seriously explore the topic---the German Idealists of the early 19th century---were mystic philosophers who predated Darwin's Origin of Species by at least a century."  (A Brief History of Evolutionary Spirituality, Tom Huston)

Rene Guenon (1886-1951) concurs.  Guenon was a French metaphysician, writer, and editor who was largely responsible for laying the metaphysical groundwork for the Traditionalist or Perennialist school of thought in the early twentieth century.   In his brilliant critical analysis of Theosophy and Spiritism entitled, "The Spiritist Fallacy"  Guenon investigates and exposes the satanic esotericism working through various modern Western secret societies to pervert true religion---orthodox Christianity in particular--- in order to ultimately turn the world over to Luciferian forces.  

Guenon reveals that in early Theosophist and spiritist circles use of the word 'progress' or 'progressivist' preceded the use of the word 'evolution.' The roots of Theosophy, hence of evolution--the universal life force--stretch back to the ancient Upanishads of India in the East and in the West to ancient Babylon, Egypt and Greece.  In its modern version, progress, transformism, and/or evolution describes the progress (transmigration) of soul made possible by the life force as it inhabits in succession the bodies of different kinds of beings over the course of thousands or even millions and billions of years.

Eventually the word evolution became preferred, especially by empirical realists and materialists like Karl Marx because it had a more 'scientific' allure:

"This kind of 'verbalism'...provides the illusion of thought for those incapable of really thinking..."  (ibid, p. 231)

Evolution is an ancient occult doctrine originating in ancient Babylonian Cabbala, Egyptian Hermetic magic and Mystery Religion traditions both East and West from the time of Babylon---the mother of all Mystery Religions---that entered Christendom during the Renaissance.  In "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), reveals that certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Cabbala texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Cabbala. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that Hermetic Cabbala--- the divine occult science or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through initiation, evolution (progress), and ritual procedures is the best proof of the divinity of Christ. 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)

That Hermetic magic and Babylonian Cabbala are ancient Mystery Religion traditions undergirded by evolution is affirmed by G. H. Pember in his classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages."    In his impeccably researched book Pember thoroughly examines the role of fallen angels in connection with the occult science they taught to pre-flood generations and compares them to the explosion of spiritism (open intercourse with evil spirits), astrology, the Mysteries and other occult traditions sweeping over Christendom.

Pember writes that the Mysteries are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the powerful occult progressive brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given,

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

Today, evolutionary dynamics and science as the instrument of the will of sovereign man has so thoroughly replaced the personal Creator in the consciousness of vast numbers of secularized Westerners, both within and without the whole body of the Christian Church, that one of the leading evolution-worshippers of our day, Professor S.J. Gould, goes so far as to describe evolutionary biology as the story of mankind.  Evolution:

“....tells us where we came from, how we got here, and perhaps where we are going. Quite simply, it is science’s version of Roots, except it is the story of us all.”   (The Religious Nature of Evolution Theory and its Attack on Christianity, John G. Leslie and Charles K. Pallaghy, Ph.D., creation.com)

In fascinated affirmation, Theodosius Dobzhansky (1900-1975) , a prominent evolutionary biologist and progressive creationist, sees evolution as a light that illuminates all facts, a trajectory which all lines of thought must follow, for if man,

“...has arrived at his present state as a result of natural processes rather than a supernatural will, he can learn to control these processes…The concept of evolution, which is now basic to the life sciences, has provided new and in some ways revolutionary answers to questions men have been asking for centuries. The two most important of these are, ‘Why am I here, what is the purpose of human existence, and what is the nature of the world of life that surrounds us?”   (Dobzhansky, T., Ayala, F.J., Stebbins, G.L. and Valentine, J.W., Evolution, W.H. Freeman and Co., San Francisco, 1977)

The most widely held evolutionary cosmology, or model of the universe's beginning and development is the Big Bang theory.   According to this version of the “story of us all” the universe is thought to have 'exploded' from a 'cosmic egg,' sometimes called the ylem in a universe bounded by an edge.  The Encyclopedia Britannica notes that the big bang is a theory,

"...of the evolution of the universe.  Its’ essential feature is the emergence of the universe from a state of extremely high temperature and density---the so-called big bang that occurred at least 10,000,000,000 years ago....."(Big Bang Model, The New Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th edition, 2:205, 1992)

The big bang is based on two assumptions: 

"The first is that Einstein's general theory of relativity describes the gravitational attraction of all matter.  The second assumption, called the cosmological principle, states that the observer's point of view of the universe depends neither on the direction in which he looks nor on his location.  This principle applies only to the large scale properties of the universe, but it does imply that the universe has no edge, so that the big bang occurred not at a particular point in space but rather throughout space at the same time.  These two assumptions make it possible to calculate the history of the cosmos after a certain epoch called the Planck time.  Scientists have yet to determine what prevailed before Planck time."    (ibid)

Distinctions are in order here. While the first assumption qualifies as true science, the second assumption, sometimes misnamed the Copernican Principle, does not since it is completely metaphysical, or philosophical.  This is illustrated by Edwin Hubble (1889-1953) who discovered that distant objects appeared to have 'red shifts' approximately proportional to distance from earth. Hubble's speculative interpretation of this discovery presented it as evidence of an expanding universe without a center and without an edge (unbounded) as opposed to Hugh Ross, the popularizer of progressive creationism whose own imaginative assumption pictures everything exploding from a central point in a universe bounded by an edge. (Refuting Compromise: A Biblical and Scientific Refutation of 'Progressive Creationism' as Popularized by Astronomer Hugh Ross, Jonathan Sarfati, Ph.D., F.M., p. 146-147)

Ross’s brand of evolutionary Christianity is wildly popular among certain Christians.  It was as a teenager that Ross decided the non-biblical big bang was a fact, thus it is the foundation stone of his twisted Scriptures---twisted because his big bang assumptions lead him to trip, stumble and fall down evolution’s downward-spiraling vortex blurring distinctions between humans and animals as he goes. (ibid)

The Big Bang is devoid of experimental proof, yet because the universe is definitely running down this fact surely points to some kind of beginning. This is apparently why some Christian leaders--theistic evolutionists and progressive creationists such as Pope Francis, Hugh Ross, Tim Keller and many others who feel we simply have to accept the evolutionists' billions of years--- have decided to accept the Big Bang theory. After all, the Big Bang requires a beginning, and they feel this fits with the Bible.  (Big Bang -- The Bucks Stop There, Henry Morris, Ph.D., icr.org)

However, not only does the Big Bang---or any other evolutionary cosmology---- not fit into the Bible but it also turns the Creator, Jesus Christ, into a liar, for He said that Adam and Eve were there "from the beginning of the creation" (Mark 10: 6; Gen. 1: 26-27) rather than several billion years after the beginning of the creation as evolutionary speculators hold.  

As the Nicene Creed affirms, Gods Word starts with the creation of absolutely everything visible and invisible ex nihilo in the space of six days.  In his "Literal interpretation of Genesis" Augustine of Hippo notes that when God brought material reality into existence, "then time began its flight." That is, when God created material things (the visible), at the same time He created space and time (the invisible) as their context.  (Creator and Creature, Douglas F. Kelly, Table Talk: Biblical Dichotomies, p. 6) 

"It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh (matter) is no help at all" John 6:63

The Triune God brought the angels into being sometime during that first creative week and as Thomas Aquinas, one of the most respected theologians of the medieval church affirms,

"Nothing entirely new was afterwards made by God, but all things subsequently made had in a sense been made before in the work of the six days.  Some things...had a previous experience materially, as the rib from the side of Adam out of which God formed Eve; whilst others existed not only in matter but also in their causes, as those individual creatures that are now generated existed in the first of their kind."   (Summa Theologica, ibid, Sarfati, p. 120)

Evolutionary Cosmologies: Imaginative Assumptions

George Francis Rayner Ellis, a high-profile evolutionary cosmologist lets the cat out of the bag with his candid confession regarding the important role of imaginative assumptions with respect to the broad range of evolutionary models of the universe such as the Big Bang. Ellis admits:

"...I can construct...a spherically symmetrical universe with earth at its center, and you cannot disprove it based on observations."   "You can only exclude it on philosophical grounds.  In my view there is absolutely nothing wrong in that.   What I want to bring into the open is the fact that we are using philosophical criteria in choosing our models.  A lot of cosmology tries to hide that."  (ibid, Jonathan Sarfati)

In other words, the Authority and Revelation of God, particularly in His six day creation account is rejected a priori not on the grounds of observational science but on the philosophical assumptions of arrogant, defiant speculators whose imaginative evolutionary models are metaphysical projects pretending to be observational science.

Another unspoken Big Bang assumption is neo-pagan and mystical pantheist naturalism, which ought to ring alarm bells for faithful, orthodox Christians.   Naturalism posits that the universe and everything in it, including conscious life, is the result of entirely natural processes.  The Big Bang therefore, is a neo-pagan and occult pantheist evolutionary cosmology, an esoteric program from hell that rejects both the personal Creator and the supernatural dimension.  This position holds true despite the uninformed claims of speculators like Hugh Ross who claim that God created and ignited the Big Bang. 

While Pope Francis, Tim Keller and many other liberal revisionists embrace and endorse Big Bang cosmology thirty-three leading evolutionary scientists expose its frauds and fallacies in ‘Open Letter to the Scientific Community’ published on the internet (www.cosmologystatement.org) and in New Scientist (Lerner, E., Bucking the big bang, New Scientist 182 (2448) 20, 22 May 2004).  According to these evolutionary scientists:

"Our ideas about the history of the universe are dominated by big bang theory. But its dominance rests more on funding decisions than on the scientific method, according to Eric Lerner, mathematician Michael Ibison of Earthtech.org, and dozens of other scientists from around the world." (Secular scientists blast the big bang: What now for naïve apologetics? Carl Wieland, creation.com) 

The open letter includes statements such as:

1. "The big bang…relies on a growing number of hypothetical entities, things that we have never observed—inflation, dark matter and dark energy are the most prominent examples. Without them, there would be a fatal contradiction between the observations made by astronomers and the predictions of the big bang theory.’

2. "But the big bang theory can’t survive without these fudge factors. Without the hypothetical inflation field, the big bang does not predict the smooth, isotropic cosmic background radiation that is observed, because there would be no way for parts of the universe that are now more than a few degrees away in the sky to come to the same temperature and thus emit the same amount of microwave radiation. … Inflation requires a density 20 times larger than that implied by big bang nucleosynthesis, the theory’s explanation of the origin of the light elements.”

3. "In no other field of physics would this continual recourse to new hypothetical objects be accepted as a way of bridging the gap between theory and observation. It would, at the least, raise serious questions about the validity of the underlying theory."

4."What is more, the big bang theory can boast of no quantitative predictions that have subsequently been validated by observation. The successes claimed by the theory’s supporters consist of its ability to retrospectively fit observations with a steadily increasing array of adjustable parameters, just as the old Earth-centred cosmology of Ptolemy needed layer upon layer of epicycles." (ibid, Carl Wieland) 

It’s amazing to see how many Christian leaders have not merely succumbed to the ‘big bang’ idea, but embrace it wholeheartedly.  Carl Wieland comments:

"To hear their pronouncements, believers should welcome it as a major plank in our defense of the faith. ‘At last, we can use science to prove there’s a creator of the universe.’ However, the price of succumbing to the lure of secular acceptability, at least in physics and astronomy, has been heavy. We have long warned that adopting the big bang into Christian thought is like bringing the wooden horse within the walls of Troy."  

The Big Bang model is not the only game in town.  Among other imaginative models there is the quasi-steady-state model of the big bang antagonist, the late Sir Fred Hoyle.  Then there is the ekpyrotic model positing that our universe is a four-dimensional membrane embedded in a five-dimensional ‘bulk’ space.  Its proponents admit:

“Our proposal is based on unproven ideas in string theory and is brand new.” (ibid, Sarfati, p. 182)

Then there are the openly occult multiverse models proposing that our universe is not the only one but that space is filled with an infinite number of parallel universes.  Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees, who holds the honorary title of Astronomer Royal champions multiverse conceptions in the hope that in at least one or more of them living beings created themselves who are far more advanced than our own life-forms. Rees believes that if this is the case, then super-intelligent aliens might be capable of simulating in their brains or in a super-computer the complex history of our universe, meaning the universe we inhabit is a simulation lacking real substance and existing only as a mental construction in the minds of highly evolved aliens who seeded our world with life and travel through time in order to control man's evolutionary progress. (Scientific Mythologies, James A. Herrick, p. 216)

The idea that the universe we inhabit exists only as a mental construction is very similar to Hinduism's Brahman. Brahman is the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (energy field, Void, Essence, prakriti matter) of material phenomena, meaning that the universe exists only as a mental construction in the mind of Brahman: brahma satyam jagan mithya, or "Brahman is real, the world is unreal." (swamij.com/mahavakyas)

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

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

In the caption of his book, "Just Six Numbers," Rees reveals that the ancient occult basis of his proposition is the serpent biting its tail:

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

The serpent-powered Ouroboros with its astral planes or multiverses is well-known around the world in its' many ancient and modern occult traditions.

Evolutionary Cosmologies:  Abominations that Desolate

Like witless moths mesmerized by strange fire, from the Renaissance to our own time liberalized Christian theologians situated within the whole body of the Christian Church have been drawn irresistibly to evolution.   Followed by countless unwitting souls, they’ve been flying into an abomination that desolates and ejects them into a downward-spiraling vortex issuing into eternal hell unless they repent and turn back to the Truth, the Way, and the Life (John 14:6).

Evolutionary Cosmologies: The Significance

Today’s broad range of evolutionary cosmologies symbolize the deep religious desires of certain men, who in their rejection of our Lord Jesus Christ and physical resurrection, seek autonomous self-creation, transcendence and self-redemption, thus are incarnations,

“….of the ancient, deeply religious endeavor ‘to become like God’--- infinitely wise, omnipotent, autonomous, and immortal.” (Mircea Eliade, “The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and Structures of Alchemy,” Dr. Erdmann)

They endeavor to become like God but shall instead,

 “…drink of the wine of the wrath of God and be tormented with fire and brimstone.” (Rev. 14:10)  And the devil who deceived them shall likewise be “thrown into the lake of burning sulfur…” (Rev. 20:10)

Evolutionism: The Worldview of Evil Spirits

According to Anthony Breznican,

"Star Wars VII has a title: The Force Awakens."   (Entertainment Weekly, insidemovies.ew.com, Nov 6, 2014) 

The Force is the ancient universal life force worshipped by ancient and modern mystical pantheists and pagans under a variety of names such as Serpent Power, Zoe, Vril, and Evolution.   It was the evolutionary scientist and Hindu-pantheist heretic Teilhard de Chardin who said that after millions of years of evolutionary progress, evolution was becoming aware of itself, hence "The Force Awakens." 

After more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in the schools, media, seminaries, academia and elsewhere progressive seculars are finally at liberty to declare that evolution is a living "mind,"

"....enlarging its domain up the chain of species." The god evolution is the "universe...a mind that oversees, orchestrates, and gives order and structure to all things." (Algeny, Jeremy Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

Now that scientism and evolution reign supreme, occult progressive "god-men"  no longer feel like guests,

"..... in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever." (ibid)

According to Robert Muller, the father of World Core Curriculum, now that evolution is "mind" highly evolved men are free to spiritually evolve into higher and higher forms, to become one with the 'divine:'

"Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the 'divine,' its transcendence into ever higher forms of life. Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity. Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age..." (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)

".....the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one." 1 John 5:19 "Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness." Luke 11:35

From the post-flood world of ancient Babylon to our own, the majority of the world's people have lived under the tyranny of powers, principalities and various determinisms – karma, reincarnation, evolution, fates, furies, chance, cause, doom, natural selection, and genes. They believed that all events in the real world were predestined and controlled by unseen forces of the cosmos that the apostle Paul described as the elemental spirits of the universe.

When Jesus Christ God incarnate demonstrated His absolute control over the elements (Luke 8:24) the tyranny of determinism was cast down and utterly broken. In the fourth century Gregory of Nazianzen suggested that at the very moment when the Magi came to worship the child of Mary and Joseph, it was then that the tyranny of determinism was broken:

"From that moment onward, the cosmos has orbited around the newborn king...Christ is the logos – the word and the reason by whom all exists and to whom all is ordered." (American Babylon, Neuhaus, p. 226)

Determinism crept into the West when evil spirits entered into the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance. They came quietly, first to certain theologians who rejected Jesus Christ in favor of Hermetic magic, Babylonian Kabala, Eastern mysticism, reincarnation, evolution, karma and other occult traditions and determinisms, and then openly with the brazen claim that laws of matter and evolution ultimately govern the world and man.

With penetrating insight, Father Richard John Neuhaus connects modern evolutionary scientism to its' ancient spiritual foundations in astrology. In his book, "American Babylon," Neuhaus argues that astrological elemental spirits have been recast as,

"...evolutionary dynamics, life forces, or laws of nature." Though described as laws rather than spirits, these elemental "forces".... work their inexorable ways in cold indifference to reason, to will, to love, and to hope. In short, it is suggested that the elemental spirits are in charge and that human freedom is a delusion."(p. 226)

"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." Colossians 2:8

According to Pastor Larry DeBruyn, the word "rudiments" (Greek, stoicheion) relates to the universe of matter and energy and is variously,

".... translated "elemental powers" (NAB), "elementary principles" (NASB), "basic principles" (NIV, NKJV), "evil powers" (NLT), and "elemental spirits" (ESV, NRSV). Translations indicate that stoicheion's meaning diverges between "principles" and "powers," between the "physical elements" constitutive of the cosmos or universe, or the "spiritual powers" that inhabit it. In 2 Peter 3:10, the first sense – that is, the "elements" which "shall melt with fervent heat" – is evident, while in Galatians 4:3 and 9, the other sense – that is, "world forces" which once "held in bondage" the Galatian believers – is evident." (The Supreme Supremacy of the Lord Jesus Christ, guardinghisflock.com)

The Worldview of Evil Spirits

The Bible emphatically affirms the reality of the occult world:

"The description of the universe as abnormal applies not only to the seen world that has fallen.  It applies also to an unseen world in which there is a devil and evil spirits who in their own rebellion against God have an active influence in the world and affairs of people."  (The Dust of Death: The Sixties Counterculture and How It Changed America Forever,  Os Guinness, p. 307)

In affirmation, the Apostle Paul wrote,

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm."  Ephesians 6:12

During the 1970s Satanism and possession became front page news in America. It was during this time that the eminent theologian Malachi Martin, a former Jesuit professor at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome published his shattering book on demon oppression and possession.

Martin's "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," presents five cases of actual possession that express important aspects of the worldview of evil spirits which allow us to not only identify these elements but discern their devastating effects within the whole body of the Christian church, the minds of theologians, millions of Americans and by extension, our nation.

The worldview of evil powers always takes the form of nature worship, or celebration of created things such as matter and energy as opposed to worship of the living, personal Creator Who created everything. Thus in support of the idea that living beings created themselves it is virulently anti-supernatural and Genesis account creation ex nihilo in favor of one dimensional naturalism and evolutionary cosmologies.

In one case, an evil spirit's evolutionary cosmology teaching the self-created "universe of matter" and human life was disclosed wherein,

"...men, women, animals, plants, cities, oceans (are) interconnected. There is really no difference between one thing and anything else....land, ocean, animals, humans, plants are one living organism clad in the shell of breathable atmosphere. Psychic forces bind it all together....It is a self-creating, self-protecting, self-developing thing.....Earth as mother, as womb, as god, as tomb, as a whole unity protected by its own shell and its own strength (is) all there is." (p. 395)

From the Big Bang (exploding cosmic egg) which supposedly created matter and energy in the demon's description of the universe as "self-creating" to inflationary in the description of the universe as a "self-developing thing" to Gaia as "Earth as self-protecting mother" the possessing demon's evolutionary cosmology is very similar to occult New Age spirituality.

Moreover, variations on the evil spirit's cosmology are affirmed and promoted by many science-obsessed Christians such as progressive creationist Hugh Ross, Pope Francis and pastor Tim Keller:

"The foundational documents of The Gospel Coalition clearly articulate a commitment to the historic, orthodox understanding of biblical inerrancy. Nevertheless, one of the cofounders of TGC, Tim Keller, has positioned himself to defend at least some versions of theistic evolution and progressive creationism (the distinction is not always clear). In a white paper published through BioLogos, Keller claims that the first chapter of Genesis is “exalted prose narrative,” and that, because of its literary genre, need not be interpreted literally....Keller is determined to torture the Genesis narratives on the rack of evolution. Not a word of his theory comes from the text; not a word of it is plausible without a prior and inflexible commitment to evolution."  (Matt Recker and The Gospel Coalition, Part 5: Inerrancy and Creationism, Kevin T. Bauder, Religious Affections Ministries,  October 24th, 2014)

Tim Keller is one of the founders of The Gospel Coalition, and if nothing else, said Bauder, the Coalition needs to be committed to a robust defense of the gospel against every error that would undermine its foundations:

" If The Gospel Coalition were fully committed to this task, it would have no room for Keller’s old-earth, progressive-creationist, theistic evolution."  

In his book, Malachi Martin highlights an important case involving David, a Catholic priest who became obsessed with the evolutionary scientism of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Teilhard's destructive influence is widespread today within transnational Trans-humanist circles, the U.N., the Catholic Church, and increasingly within the Protestant Church.

In "Teilhard de Chardin: Trojan Horse of Vatican II/Heretic Extraordinaire," Dr. J. P. Hubert wonders whether based on Teilhard's admission of a mystical encounter if his evolutionary science was satanically inspired. Teilhard describes his strange encounter:

"The man was walking in the desert...when the Thing swooped down on him. Then, suddenly, a breath of scorching air passed across his forehead, broke through the barrier of his closed eyelids; an irresistible rapture took possession of him....mightily refashioning the enfeebled fibres of his being. And at the same time the anguish of some superhuman peril oppressed him, a confused feeling that the force which had swept down upon him was equivocal, turbid, the combined essence of all evil and goodness. You called me: here I am grown weary of abstractions, of attenuations, of the wordiness of social life, you wanted to pit yourself against Reality entire and untamed. I was waiting for you in order to be made holy. And now I am established on you for life, or for death....He who has once seen me can never forget me: he must either damn himself with me or save me with himself. O you who are divine and mighty, what is your name? Speak."

Hubert concludes that Teilhardism is,

"...no doubt of Satanic origin – a true "religion of man," if ever there was one."

America's Unfolding Spiritual Catastrophe

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

This demon is mainly embodied within Enlightenment ideologies such as rationalism, progressivism, Darwinism, evolutionism, and socialism.  America's "scientifically endarkened" progressive Ruling Class is deeply oppressed and possessed by these dark ideas.  Having rejected the biblical Triune God and the religious heritage of our civilization, they embrace instead these dark ideologies of which Communism and Socialism are logical expressions. A new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the still remaining remnants of America's Christian-based culture must be completely destroyed.

What this means is that the spiritual catastrophe that unfolded in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany is unfolding on America's stage.

Can this catastrophe be averted?

Repentance: The Only Way

Returning to David, prior to his obsession with Teilhardism he was destined to become a professor of anthropology at a Catholic university. But under the influence of Teilhardism, he came to see that the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, Adam and Eve as the first man and woman and parents of all mankind who fell and passed on Original Sin to all human beings were utterly contrary to modern scientific thinking and evolution.

Therefore David taught anthropology from a modern "evolutionary science" perspective, even going so far as to exclude traditional presentations of doctrines about creation ex nihilo and Original Sin. But after introducing Teilhardism to his students, doubts arose when he observed the breathtaking transformative effects of this teaching upon Jonathan, one of his students, a priest who now insisted that all the sacraments are "...no more than expressions of man's natural unity with the world around him."

David's eyes were suddenly opened and he saw clearly for the first time that Teilhardism exalted man as an animal and pictured,

"God as no more than the very bowels of earth and sky and the spatial distances of the universe with all its expanding galaxies." (Martin, p. 107)

Meanwhile, Jonathan left the church and quickly founded his own cult among wealthy Manhattan families. He preached that the universe and all people were evolving as 'one' in a naturally occurring mystical union which he called "Abba Father." (p. 127)

Martin writes that Jonathan had come under the dominion of an evil spirit and David was called in to exorcise him. However, the demon possessing Jonathan ridiculed David, saying they both believed the same things, therefore if Jonathan needed exorcism David needed it more.

Reeling in shock, David was led to an agony of soul-searching over the course of many weeks during which he re-examined and finally repented of the intellectual arrogance that led him to embrace Teilhardism and the "higher criticism" of Scriptures that reduced the Revealed Word to myth, allegory and delusion and the death of Jesus to an insignificant event of the evolutionary past rather than,

"...an ever present source of personal forgiveness and unshakable hope for any future." (p. 149)

According to Martin, the evil spirit who had nearly succeeded in killing David's faith now taunted him that to return to faith would entail slavery of mind and will. But when a repentant David deliberately rejected the demon's taunts,

"...a great and breathtaking dimension full of relief....flooded his mind and will and imagination....And when he now looked at the world of nature around him...and heard the song of a mockingbird nearby, he received it no longer as he had while a Teilhardian evolutionist, as 'intimations of molecules endlessly regrouping,' but rather 'of endless life for each person, and of love without a shadow." (pp. 163, 165)

Speaking through Nietzsche, the evil spirit calling itself Zarathustra had declared the death of the Christian God on behalf of all willful unbelievers, but now for David, "He's alive and I'm forgiven!" His faith in God, Christ, the Holy Spirit and Scripture restored, David was ready to exorcise the evil spirit who possessed Jonathan. He did so,

"...in the name of God who created him (Jonathan) and you (evil spirit), and of Jesus of Nazareth who saved him! You will depart and get back to the uncleanness and agony you chose." (p. 169)

The Pope, Protestants, Aliens, Evolution & the Coming New World Order

"In 2007, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Cardinal of Buenos Aires, Argentina, invited the visiting Episcopal Bishop of California, William Swing, to bring his assorted syncretist colleagues to the Cathedral for an interfaith service with him. Swing’s group was part of the United Religions Initiative, and the purpose of the syncretic worship was to celebrate the URI’s 10th anniversary of its installation in Latin America." (Pope Francis and the United Religions Initiative, Cornelia R. Ferreira, Catholic Family News, 09/09/14)

Investigative reporter Lee Penn, a Catholic ex-Marxist, author of "False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion" writes that the most ambitious organization in today’s interfaith movement is the United Religions Initiative (URI), founded by William Swing, the Episcopal Bishop of California.

Penn argues that the URI is to a significant extent animated by New Age satanic-spirituality and adds that evolution, openly affirmed by Pope Francis, is absolutely central to New Age theology:

 "For all forms of evolutionary thinking God is irrelevant. If He exists, He has nothing essential to do with a world which has evolved out of its own inner forces and thus is a law unto itself. The God-hypothesis is thus only retained by persons who are trying to maintain a formal but nonessential relationship between Christianity and evolution." (The Mythology of Science, by Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 27)

When Pope Francis addressed the Pontifical Academy of Sciences at the Vatican he affirmed the Big Bang and evolution, thereby standing against the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and faithful creationists and with those who reject the Creation account of Genesis as written.  Moreover, he endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life,

"....which he refers to as “beings of the universe” - has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” He explained how the Catholic Church views the Big Bang and evolution as scientific processes underpinned by “the plan of the creator.” Pope Francis has officially moved the Catholic Church away from the idea of “God the creator..." (Pope endorses evolution of alien life & UFO activity as part of God's plan, Michael Salla, The Examiner, Oct. 28, 2014)

United Religions Initiative, Evolution & Extraterrestrials

The URI is a United Nations project:

" It was heralded in June 1995 by Bishop Swing at the occult, earth-worshipping interfaith service he was invited to conduct for the UN, honoring the 50th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter. Attending the service in San Francisco’s Episcopal Grace Cathedral were political luminaries and representatives of all religions, including Britain’s Princess Margaret, Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, Polish President Lech Walesa, UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Archbishop Renato Martino (Vatican nuncio to the UN), and Archbishop John Quinn of San Francisco." (ibid, Ferreira, Catholic Family News, 09/09/14)

The URI is meant to be for all nature religions and modern mystery religions what the United Nations is for all nations of the world.  Its purpose is to be the World Church, the Universal One-Spirituality for the coming New World Order, a pantheistic global community comprising a one-world government and one-world religion or church.  

According to Penn, the URI is a syncretic stew of Liberal pantheist Christianity, Theosophy, Spiritism, the Ancient Mysteries, Wicca, Goddess worship, neo-paganism and adulation of Lucifer. (False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, Lee Penn, p. 437)

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

New Age spirituality relies heavily on the spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Penn notes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes:

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

2. Proclaiming that we humans are gods and that death is not real

3. Advocacy for extreme population control, including eugenics and euthanasia

4. Utter contempt for traditional religions — with concentrated scorn directed at Judaism, orthodox evangelical Protestantism, and orthodox Roman Catholicism

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

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

Revelations from the gods of this world

Speaking through Alice Bailey, the demon-master Djwhal Khul predicted back in the 1940s that a spiritual hierarchy would:

"bring to an end the long silence which has persisted since Atlantean days," and "renew an ancient sharing of secrets." Thus "in the immediate future," spirit "Masters will walk openly among men...openly guiding and directing the affairs of humanity." (False Dawn, p. 262)

From the spirit-channeled revelations called Course in Miracles taught by New Age High Priestess Oprah Winfrey to the spirit-revelations of Neale Donald Walsh, and revelations received from the Space Brothers by UFO contactees, spirits going by a variety of names are indeed speaking and "sharing secrets"....in local bookstores, movies and right on TV. 

From the Royal Society (the national academy of science in the UK) and NASA, to the European Space Agency, the UN office for Outer Space Affairs, and to Pope Francis and the Vatican's progressive astronomers, excited discussions abound, all centered upon the existence of highly evolved Space Brothers (aliens) and their anticipated arrival here on earth. Lord Martin Rees, President of the Royal Society announced that aliens may be "staring us in the face" in a form unrecognizable to humans. (Official Disclosure: Prepare for Contact, Donna Anderson, officialdisclosure.com)

Longtime UFO researchers however, are no longer excited but alarmed. Their research shows that modern alien abductions resemble ancient stories of demons and demonic possession. The similarity was not lost on UFO research-scientist John Keel:

"Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology. It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have...coexisted with man throughout history....The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not..identical, to the UFO phenomenon. Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees..." (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 260)

Ominous Harbingers

In 1994, the Vatican hosted part of its Sixth General Assembly, the first interfaith conference ever held at the Holy See. Speakers included John Paul, several cardinals, Hans Küng and liberation theologian Gustavo Gutierrez:

"Unlike Pope John Paul’s indirect support of the one-world church, Cardinal Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, the future Pope Francis, in the style we have now come to expect, had no qualms about ignoring the existing Vatican position. He openly encouraged the United Religions — an ominous harbinger of the direction of his papacy?" (ibid, Ferreira, Catholic Family News)
 
Strange isn't it, that behind the backs of feuding Protestants and Roman Catholics a global interfaith leviathan influenced and directed by a hierarchy of spirits and consisting of progressive Roman Catholics, Protestants, Muslims, "gays," neo-pagans, and occultists is positioning itself as the spiritual face of a  globally pantheist NWO preparing the way for the Antichrist?

America's Growing Anarchy of Selfishness & its Consequences

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, pp. 12-13)

The Demise of Imago Dei

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

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

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

Jesus Christ to Buddha,

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

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

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

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

The Devil and the Genesis Problem

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Myth of Extraterrestrials

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Extraterrestrials: Lucifer’s Elite Troops

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Orwellian Peace Symbol: Doublethink for Hatred & Death

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

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

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