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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He lists representative case histories of the hazards:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Beelzebul, Apollyon, and America's City of Man

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

Augustine writes of the City of God:  

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

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

The City of Man is characterized by its ultimate appointment with the Destroyer and its bondage to Beelzebul.  Beelzebul relieves his tares of the burdensome task of having to think for themselves and make decisions in return for his permission to sin freely without the burden of either guilt or shame. Thus the City of Man is characterized by idolatry, power lust, anarchy, sexual depravity, lying, envy, brutality, human sacrifice, slavery and other evils since its' citizens are unregenerate natural men (1 Cor. 2:14) who despise the Lord, His statutes, Commands, and covenants and instead are allowed by Beelzebul and Apollyon to run roughshod over each other, each one for his own earthly gain using their own relativistic rules. Above all, said Augustine, the City of Man "is itself ruled by the lust of rule."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Even so, most commoners enjoyed nature worship, 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ba'al (Beelzebuls') Victory Arch

When  the European ruling class, represented by German Chancellor Angela Markel, French President Francois Hollande, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Liechtenstein Prime Minister Adrian Hasler, and Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern took part in the opening of the world's longest tunnel under the Swiss Alps the ceremony was acted out under the baleful gaze of the All Seeing Eye.  The All Seeing Eye is the U.N.'s "god" of the nations depicted by a magic cube in the U.N.'s meditation room.  The All Seeing Eye is the symbol of Ba'al/Beelzebul.

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

As the European ruling class looked on, graphically sexual and blatantly satanic rituals were performed featuring a baby-faced Lucifer (Horus) and a horned, goat-headed Baphomet (Ba'al), symbol of the Void, or Mind of the Universe and its seething serpent-powered evolutionary energies depicted by the U.N.'s magic cube.  

The androgynous horned deity was adored by scantily clad figures repeatedly prostrating themselves before him/her. As the horned god made his/her appearance horrific wailing and screaming was heard over the audio system. Next, Baphomet/Ba'al/Beelzebul simulated sexual acts with several of the male and female performers, many of whom were androgynous. (Europe’s top leaders watch bizarre satanic ceremony opening world’s longest tunnel, Life Site News, Jun. 6, 2016)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 The tentacles of Technocracy include programs such as,

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

 Religious Foundations of Technocracy and Trans-Humanism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”  Ecclesiastes 1:9, KJB

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

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

John 1: 1-5 The Word Became Flesh

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Technocracy is an utterly nihilistic, global religion and reigning superstition and madness-producing factory of the once-Christian West and America.  It is promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against the Holy Trinity that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with spirits, astral plane travels, totalitarian aspirations, subjectivism (moral relativism), and Illuminism, a teaching of ancient mystery religions that holds that man,

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

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

Technocracy:  Contemporary Utopian World Order

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Worldview of Satan

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hobbit Truth-Warriors in Sauron's American Mirkwood

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

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

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

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

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

The Return of Sauron’s Kingdom of Darkness

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here's how retired Marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North describes the 'new' Socialist States of America, where according to the U.S. government North is not only a racist but an extremist because:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As their numbers grew and their narcissism inflated,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Yogic Christ and the Terrifying Demonic Reality of Yoga

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yoga: Highly Refined Royal Science of Babylon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The occult symbolism planned for the Temple was the same as for the U.N. Meditation Room--- the All Seeing Eye of a 'dying and rising' deity worshipped throughout the world under many different names such as Ba'al, Tammuz, Osiris, Zeus, Quetzalcoatl and Apollyon.

According to Dag Hammarskjold, the 'dying and rising' Sun god of a thousand names is the god of the UN Meditation Room mural, an asymmetrically arranged magic square symbolizing the Divine Energy Field, the singularity (symbolized by a serpent biting its tail) from which emanate evolving creative energies extending into the psyche of mankind:

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

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

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

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

The Apocalyptic Revolution

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

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

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

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

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

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

Infernal New Age World Spirituality

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

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

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

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

Other primary goals of revolutionaries are:

a. Dissolution of legal government;

b. Destruction of sovereignty, private property and patriotism;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

That Hideous Strength (Demonic Outpouring) and Unconscious Satanism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Malignant narcissism, ressentiment, and the wrath of God

Pride (narcissism) is the devil's original sin, which is why in his commentary on Psalm 18/2, 15, St. Augustine records that pride turned Lucifer into Satan and banned him eternally from heaven. Just as pride turned Lucifer into Satan, the Prince of lies, heresy, murder, rage, envy and demonic darkness, it leads the soul to likewise rebel against God, and inflated by devilish pride, wander off into Satan's darkness. This vice is therefore no slight evil:

"It makes those infected with it refuse to bow their necks to the yoke of Christ while they harness themselves all the more tightly to the bondage of sin." Augustine

Malignant Narcissism, Ressentiment, and the Wrath of God

Pride (narcissism) is the devil's original sin, which is why in his Commentary on Psalm 18/2, 15,  St. Augustine records that pride turned Lucifer into Satan and banned him eternally from heaven. Just as pride turned Lucifer into Satan, the Prince of demonic darkness, it causes the soul to likewise rebel against God and wander off into Satan's darkness. This vice is therefore no slight evil:
 
"It makes those infected with it refuse to bow their necks to the yoke of Christ while they harness themselves all the more tightly to the bondage of sin."
 
The Decalogue shows that the beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over the Holy Trinity and neighbor). The wicked will of the bad man is not in submission to the Trinity but autonomous devilish self.  Having made an idol out of him or herself as is the case for increasing numbers of narcissistic Christians and non-Christians and in particular Leftist Progressive pagan 'elites' and their liberal acolytes---the narcissist assumes he possesses honor and self-invented rights. This is why preference for 'self' leads to contempt for the Holy Trinity, objective truth, law (i.e.,the Ten Commandments and Constitution), wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, institutions and other people, their families, property, and wealth.   As a whole, Scripture combines pride with covetousness, greed, malice, hatred, and jealousy into a single concept--ressentiment--- that is a manifestation of idolatry of self issuing in hatred of and rage against the Holy God and one's brother, which means that there can be no charity whatsoever where there is envy (ressentiment) and hatred in one's heart. 
 
Ressentiment or malignant envy is the passion which causes evil.  It is the father of death,
 
"... the first entrance for sin, the root of wickedness, the birth of sorrow, the mother of misfortune, the basis of disobedience, the beginning of shame. Envy banishes us from paradise....Envy made Joseph a slave. Envy is the death-dealing sting, the hidden weapon, the sickness of nature, the bitter poison, the self-willed emaciation, the bitter dart, the nail of the soul, the fire in the heart, the flame burning on the inside..." (Life of Moses, Gregory of Nyssa, quoted in Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. Aquaro, p. 74)
 
In his first edition dictionary, "The American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828" Noah Webster defines ressentiment, or what he simply identifies as envy as,
 
"...pain, uneasiness, mortification or discontent excited by the sight of another's superiority (often spiritual)or success, accompanied by some degree of hatred or malignity, often or usually with a desire or an effort to depreciate the person, and with pleasure at seeing him depressed; malice, malignity, invidiousness, ill will."
 
According to Webster, malice is,

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

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

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

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

There is even burning envy of believers by unbelievers:

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

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

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

In his seminal work, "Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture," Herbert Schlossberg, a Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and leading scholar on the relationship between Christianity and the societies in which it has existed, writes that ressentiment begins with perceived injury occasioned by envy toward and covetousness of the spiritual and/or temporal possessions or qualities possessed by another person.  If the perception is not either sublimated,
 
 "...or assuaged by the doing of some injury to the object of the feeling, the result is a persistent mental condition, stemming from the repression of emotions that are not acceptable when openly expressed.  The result is hatred and the impulse to spite and to say things that detract from the other's worth." (p. 51)
 
Ressentiment, or what Schlossberg describes as Schadenfreude, is rejoicing at another person's suffering, thus vengeance is the principle manifestation of ressentiment:

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

Ressentiment has its origin in the tendency to make comparisons between the attributes of another and one's own attributes such as wealth, popularity, appearance, intelligence, success, personality, position, gender (straight male, straight female), children, and friends, for example.  Any perceived superior difference is enough to set the pathology in motion.  Thus ressentiment whispers continually:
 
"I can forgive everything, but not that you are---that you are what you are----that I am not what you are---indeed that I am not you."    (Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior, Helmut Schoeck, ibid, Schlossberg, p. 52)
 
The envied other's very existence is a reproach, 
 
"When heaven with such parts blest him, have I not reason to detest him?" is a genuine and natural expression of the human mind.  The man who writes as we cannot write, who speaks as we cannot speak, labors as we cannot labor, thrives as we cannot thrive, has accumulated on his person all the offenses of which man can be guilty.  Down with him! Why cumbereth he the ground?" (Schoeck)
 
Progressive Leftism's Politics of Resentment
 
"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." (Winston Churchill, British orator, author and Prime Minister during World War II, 1874-1965)

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

"Political Ponerology" is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej M. £obaczewski to an interdisciplinary study of the founders and supporters of 20th century envy-fueled totalitarian political regimes. His study utilizes data from psychology, sociology, philosophy, and history to account for the propagation of man's inhumanity to man through such phenomena as terrorism, aggressive war, ethnic cleansing, ostracism, despotism and genocide:

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

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

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

"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)
 
Financed by Western Progressive bankers and powerful Wall Street businessmen, Marxist Communists systematically stole the personal property of Russians, sexually perverted their children and filled their heads with Darwinism and  hatred of the Trinity, their own parents, the Christian church, priests, their homeland and its' culture and traditions. If this was not evil enough, they maliciously undermined and destroyed the traditional family, unleashed a holocaust of easy divorce and abortion as well as homosexualizing the culture, desecrating and blaspheming churches, crucifying thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committing monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of more than sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

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

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

 Though Lobaczewski's study is a clinically accurate description of the nature of human evil it falls into the error of attributing evil to biological causes rather than the sin nature of man. Despite this failing, Political Ponerology is a shocking account of large scale evil super-heated by molten hatred of and rage against the Holy Creator God and the Body of Christ and burning with ressentiment and will to power – or what Lobaczewski terms the 'ponerogenic processes' that overtook modern Russia that have overtaken whole societies and nations since time immemorial.
 
Ressentiment has played a part in human dynamics ever since the Evil One persuaded the envy-bitten Cain to murder his brother Abel, a green-eyed Saul to try to murder David, Judas to betray Jesus Christ and the Pharisees to crucify Him.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“..the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination” exists in institutions and casts “a long shadow and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.”  ("Obama Logic? Racism is Genetic, Gender is a Choice, Cliff Kincaid, gopusa.com, June 23, 2015

 When ressentiment has finally saturated a society's entire ruling class and its' privileged special rights groups (barbarians), will-to-power and vice will be celebrated rather than virtue and opposition from morally convicted people crushed.  It is then that we will face what Lobaczewski calls Macrosocial Evil or a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." (p. 121)

The most frightening aspect of America's descent into madness, idolatry, heresy, barbarism, ressentiment, vengeance-seeking, murderous rage, and lawlessness is that it will lead inevitably to a tyranny of evil, persecution and martyrdom:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Crisis in the Church

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Truth about Evil

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

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

R.C. Sproul comments:

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

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

The truth as to evil said Athanasius,

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

What is Truth?  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Os Guinness comments:

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

Erwin Lutzer concurs:

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

Guinness sums up the downward spiral of the West:

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

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

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

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

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

The Day of the Lord----when?

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

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

Washington D.C: Hub of Witchcraft

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Political Correctness: Public Advocacy of Vice

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Intersectionality: The Latest Craze of Leftist Energy Worshippers

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In ‘America’s Ruling Class’ Angelo Codevilla details the rise of America’s progressive movement.  As far back as the 1820s J.C. Calhoun was reading in the best London journals that, 

“….different breeds of animals and plants produce inferior or superior results, slave owners were citing the Negroes’ deficiencies to argue that they should remain slaves indefinitely. Lots of others were reading Ludwig Feuerbach’s rendition of Hegelian philosophy, according to which biblical injunctions reflect the fantasies of alienated human beings or, in the young Karl Marx’s formulation, that ethical thought is “superstructural” to material reality. By 1853, when Sen. John Pettit of Ohio called “all men are created equal” “a self-evident lie,” much of America’s educated class had already absorbed the “scientific” notion (which Darwin only popularized) that man is the product of chance mutation and natural selection of the fittest. Accordingly, by nature, superior men subdue inferior ones as they subdue lower beings or try to improve them as they please….As the 19th century ended, the educated class’s religious fervor turned to social reform: they were sure that because man is a mere part of evolutionary nature, man could be improved, and that they, the most highly evolved of all, were the improvers.”  (America’s Ruling Class---and the Perils of Revolution, Codevilla, July/Aug. 2010, The American Spectator)

As the years passed and their numbers grew their narcissism inflated,

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

 Today’s ruling class, from Boston to San Diego, is a God-hating confederacy formed by an educational system that exposes them to the same ideas and gives them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits:

 " These amount to a social canon of judgments about good and evil, complete with secular sacred history, sins (against minorities and the environment), and saints. Using the right words and avoiding the wrong ones when referring to such matters — speaking the “in” language — serves as a badge of identity. Regardless of what business or profession they are in, their road up included government channels and government money because, as government has grown, its boundary with the rest of American life has become indistinct. Many began their careers in government and leveraged their way into the private sector. Some, e.g., Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, never held a non-government job. Hence whether formally in government, out of it, or halfway, America’s ruling class speaks the language and has the tastes, habits, and tools of bureaucrats. It rules uneasily over the majority of Americans not oriented to government.” 

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

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

Despite America’s pervasive spiritual, moral, and intellectual pathology most Americans still retain faith in God (more or less) thus some sense of right and wrong, while the  Ruling Class are characterized by depraved consciences and animalistic minds who imagine themselves as gods.  So far from being the rational, scientifically enlightened, morally and intellectually superior beings they imagine themselves to be, America’s Ruling Class are depraved monsters whose distaste for common Americans long ago devolved into hatred which now burns out of control because deplorable “hominids” dared to rebel against their betters and elect Donald Trump.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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