Revelation 2:7

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schaeffer rebuked evangelical compromisers, warning them that to accommodate,

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

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

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

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

A further consequence is that the theological frontier,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Aleister Crowley: Founder of Thelema

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

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

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

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

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

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey.... of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity.  The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)."   Finally it happened---Explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated.  Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels."   "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..."   (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45) 
 
In "Beyond Good and Evil" the Anti-Christ presents his "Master morality," the anti-morality summarized by Crowley as "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." What this means is that since demonized God-hating liars have conceptually "murdered" the Holy Triune God and sealed up heaven, Masters have a natural right to do whatever they please, for everything is permissible. Whatever a Master commands becomes good from the mere fact that the Master wills it:

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

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

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

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

Nietzsche’s Transvaluation of Values
 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Scientifically Demonstrable Revelations

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 20th Century: Age of Fabian Socialists

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Darwinism, Polygenism, and Racialist Fabians

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Evolutionary Theism Implies That Christ is Wrong About Creation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Today increasing numbers of 'scientifically enlightened' Western and American theologians, seminarians and intellectuals reject belief in Moses in favor of science (magic science) and biological evolution. 
 
Pope Francis, Timothy Keller, Leonard Sweet, Hugh Ross and many others fall into this category.    And having fallen into the scientism and evolution quagmire, they deride, ridicule, and criticize faithful Christians who refuse to fall into the quagmire as well.

Over and across the entire denominational spectrum, it is the faithful---those who love Truth---who in their unflinching stand against evolution are harshly criticized, ridiculed, and condemned by willful compromisers for their so-called  'anti-science religionism, narrow-mindedness, fundamentalism, cultural isolationism, and anti-intellectualism' which compromisers call,

Theological liberalism first developed in Germany.  Its first real manifestation was at the University of Tubingen where Ferdinand Baur (1792-1860) had formed a school of theology for the purpose of raising doubts about the Bible.  This tactic was designed to undermine the Revealed Word as the exclusive fount of truth.  Among areas which came under suspicion were the Genesis account, the person and deity of Christ, the fall and human sin, the authority of Scripture, the transcendence of God, the Way of spiritual salvation, and the doctrine of the Christian Church.  (From Old Gnosticism to New Age, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 28:4-29:1, 2005, pp. 32-33)
 
The theological liberalism inaugurated at Tubingen 'Christianized' the cosmological shift and the magic science and evolutionary pantheism sweeping over our nation in many guises today: Teilhard's New Religion, Leonard Sweets quantum spirituality, the Quantum Void posited by modern physicists and occult New Age for example. 
 
Theological liberalism owed much to the occult Hermetic pantheist philosophy of George Hegel (1770-1811).   Hegel was a philosophical heir of ancient occult traditions and an important member of an occult brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance.  His early writings were very much influenced by Christoph Oetinger (1702-1782), the gnostic occult Kabbalist and disciple of Renaissance Hermetic-Kabbalists such as Emanuel Swedenborg and Jakob Boehme (1575-1624). Hegels dialectic, or pantheist theory of historical evolution, dovetailed neatly with liberal theology’s evolutionary pantheism and its’ outrageous claim that Christianity was a hybrid religion of the Near East. (ibid)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do not throw away your confidence in the Lord:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Technocratic Trans-Humanism: A Global Religion

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HUMANISM'S ANCIENT PAGAN ROOTS

In 1980, the Trilateral Observer published a lengthy essay entitled "Humanism: The Global Ideology." (Vol. 3, Issue 9) According to the Observer, Humanism is a secular, non-theistic (atheistic) religion that believes man is capable of self-fulfillment, ethical conduct and salvation without supernatural intervention. 

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

" The major financiers of Aspen also are the major financiers of Trilateralism, and no less than seven members of the Trilateral Commission also serve at the Aspen Institute."  (Global Religion for Global Governance, Patrick Wood)

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

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

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

The Markle Foundation (a substantial Aspen backer) is less well known but leads us back to New York banks,

“…in this case to the Morgan Guarantee group. Markle Foundation chairman is Charles F. Biddle, also chairman of the credit policy group of Morgan Guarantee Trust. Walter H. Page is president of Morgan Guarantee Trust and president of J.P. Morgan. Another director, William M. Rees, is a director of First National City Bank." "In short, it seems the private financing for the Aspen Institute comes from the international banks in New York City, and more specifically, from foundations controlled by Rockefeller and Morgan interests."  

Though it touts itself as thoroughly modern, enlightened, and scientific, Western Humanism is revamped and revised ancient pagan and mystical pantheist creeds.  Its materialistic roots,

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

All permutations of modern Western Humanism are promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with spirits, astral plane travels, totalitarian aspirations, subjectivism (moral relativism), and Illuminism, an ancient mystery religion creed that teaches that man,
 
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)  

Humanist Utopianism

 Marxist Communism is a humanistic Gnostic pagan doctrine from the godless tree of Humanism.  In a probing analysis of Marxist Communism, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyer described it as the state form taken by a scientific and materialist pagan faith, 

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

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

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

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

As It Was in the Days of Noah

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

What is Evil?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

No One Escapes Evil/Suffering

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

Omnipotence could, Benevolence would have prevented evil.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If Suffering, Not Sin, Is The Supreme Evil

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Technocratic Humanism: The Global Religion

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HUMANISM'S ANCIENT PAGAN ROOTS

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

According to the Observer, Humanism is a secular, non-theistic (atheistic) religion that believes man is capable of self-fulfillment, ethical conduct and salvation without supernatural intervention. 

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

" The major financiers of Aspen also are the major financiers of Trilateralism, and no less than seven members of the Trilateral Commission also serve at the Aspen Institute."  (Global Religion for Global Governance, Patrick Wood)

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

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

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

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

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

Revamped and revised Humanism is an ancient pagan and mystical pantheist creed.  Its materialistic roots,

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

All forms of modern Western Humanism are promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with spirits, astral plane travels, totalitarian aspirations, subjectivism (moral relativism), and Illuminism, an ancient occult mystery religion that teaches that man,
 
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)  

Humanist Utopianism

 Marxist Communism is a humanistic pagan doctrine from the godless tree of Humanism.  In a probing analysis of Marxist Communism, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyer described it as the state form taken by a scientific and materialist pagan faith, 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Epicurean Atomism: Ancient and Modern

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Haeckel would later write,

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

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

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

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

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

Stoic Pantheism: Ancient and Modern

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

According to Swing’s experience of mystical oneness:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

What is Evil?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

No One Escapes Evil/Suffering

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

Omnipotence could, Benevolence would have prevented evil.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He lists representative case histories of the hazards:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Augustine writes of the City of God:  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Even so, most commoners enjoyed nature worship, 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ba'al (Beelzebuls') Victory Arch

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 The tentacles of Technocracy include programs such as,

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

 Religious Foundations of Technocracy and Trans-Humanism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

John 1: 1-5 The Word Became Flesh

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Technocracy:  Contemporary Utopian World Order

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Worldview of Satan

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hobbit Truth-Warriors in Sauron's American Mirkwood

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

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

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

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

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

The Return of Sauron’s Kingdom of Darkness

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As their numbers grew and their narcissism inflated,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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