Your Soul: Cost of Admission to Progressivism’s City of Man (New Sodom and Rome)

Our war is against the Christian God (John 1:1,2) and the world created by Him, declared Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto. In his poem, "The Pale Maiden" he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:

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

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

The kings of the earth…and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying Let us burst bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” (Psalm 2: 2,3)

The Progressive Satanic revolt is war against the Holy Trinity...the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which in Bakunin's words are the "cursed and fatal principle of authority." Thus it proclaims the reign of nothingness, though nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of evil personified...the dark god of this world. It is this dark god (Beelzebul) and his evil legions that reign over the City of Man. (1)

Satanic Revolt in America

There are two misconceptions held by many Americans.  The first is that satanic, revolutionary Marxist communism  (City of Man) ceased to be a threat when the Soviet Union imploded.  The second is that the equally satanic Progressive New Left of the Sixties collapsed and disappeared as well. (2)

Because the New Left lacked cohesion it fell apart as a political movement.  However, its revolutionaries reorganized themselves into a multitude of social justice single-issue groups.  Thus we now have for example, radical feminists (witches, goddesses), black supremacists, green pantheist environmentalists and animal rights groups, Satanists, and LBGTQ+ gender justice rights groups.  All of these social justice warriors pursue their piece of the Progressive agenda through a complex network of organizations such as the Gay Straight Lesbian Educators Network (GSLEN), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), People for the American Way, United for Peace and Justice, Planned Parenthood, Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and Code Pink for Peace. 

Both the obsessive dream of the City of Man and the Progressive New Left are alive and thriving here in America.  They favor code words: evolution, materialism, identity politics, critical theory, tolerance, social justice, economic justice, gender justice, environmental justice, racial justice, change, peace, reproductive rights, sex education (polymorphous perversion), intersectionality, inclusion, diversity, and sensitivity.  All together, this is Cultural Marxism (the Satanic revolt) disguised as multiculturalism.

The linchpin of Cultural Marxism is cultural determinism.  According to former red-diaper baby and revolutionary David Horowitz, cultural determinism is identity politics:

"the politics of radical feminism, queer revolution, and Afro-centrism-which is the basis of academic multiculturalism...a form of intellectual fascism and, insofar as it has any politics, of political fascism as well."  (Mussolini and Neo-Fascist Tribalism: Up from Multiculturalism, by David Horowitz, Jan. 1998) 

In its turn, cultural determinism was birthed by the Darwinian anti-creation myth that man is a dehumanized aspect and/or aggregate of matter evolving within evolving energy-streams of the cosmos.   Man is therefore a product of unseen energies--of time, chance and evolution---working on matter, thus he is a soulless hominid whose genetic identity is determined for example, by skin color, sexual appetites, and feelings.  This proposition rejects the concepts of the human spirit/soul, personhood, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience because it emphatically denies the existence of the Triune Creator God of the Bible. (Gen. 1-11)

Though Progressivism emphatically denies the Holy Triune God it nevertheless claims that Christ (divine spark) is in ‘woke’ Progressives (Gnostic paganism) and that through evolution a christ-force progresses or spontaneously emanates from nature, meaning a Divine One Substance, Quantum Abyss, Energy Field, Void, or Soul of the Universe.

 Since evolution implies continuous change Progressivism claims that immutable (unchanging) truths do not exist, therefore there is nothing immutable in the Bible or the Christian Church, or for that matter in Americas' Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and Rule of Law. All are subject to change since all things are infused with divine spirit, power, intent, natural selection, determinism, and motion. Thus Christianity itself lives and evolves, and must be changed.

 Progressivism also holds that all world religions and belief systems are true because   divine-force suffuses and energizes all things. By extension of this reasoning, Gaia (planet earth) is alive, and Gnostic paganism, Satanism, Wicca, Theosophy, and Sharia are true. This is syncretism (moral relativism), the uniting of good and evil, truth and lie, the holy and the unholy.

For more than eighty years, but with great speed and force since the 1960’s ’sex, drugs, and rock’n’ roll’ revolution, America’s Progressive ruling class has been stealthily undermining America’s founding worldview, seizing control of our culture and mind-shaping institutions (i.e., seminaries, politics, media, academia, music, science, internet), and through them moving our society away from a Biblical/creational worldview to the evolutionary, mystically Gnostic pagan model that undergirds the Progressive fantasy—a City of Man. 

The result of this long-range change-making campaign is that contemporary Progressive ‘pagan elites’ now control American culture:

Oneism (paganism) takes on both spiritual and secular dress to disguise its true allegiance and uses mockery and ostracism to manipulate vulnerable Christians. Finally, Christians buckle, tired of being labeled intolerant, bigoted and closeminded. They are dismissed because they refuse to attempt a definitive explanation of true mystery, yet are smeared as arrogant when they speak with clarity God’s answers to the fundamental questions our culture raises.” Cultural and Theological Stockholm Syndrome, Joseph Torres, TruthXchange, May 6, 2019)

Approximately fourteen years ago sadistic elites launched a diabolical campaign to humiliate, castrate, and isolate mainly middle-class Conservative Americans and orthodox Christians with a goal of breaking them. Toward this end, in 2005 barbarous Leftists within the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Science Foundation announced the results of a $1.2 million dollar taxpayer funded study:

" It stated, essentially, that traditionalists are mentally disturbed.  Scholars from the Universities of Maryland, California at Berkeley, and Stanford had determined that social conservatives...suffer from ‘mental rigidity,' ‘dogmatism,' and ‘uncertainty avoidance,' together with associated indicators for mental illness.”  (‘Social and Emotional Learning" Jan. 26, 2005, edwatch.org)

In the space of fourteen years, Christian business owners are now freely slandered, persecuted and sued out of existence by LBGTQ+ social justice warriors, our libraries  used to corrupt children (3), a Baptist pastor jailed (4), and social conservatives as a group openly branded and maliciously dehumanized as racists, haters, bigots, and deplorables.  Now traditional masculinity is perversely labeled toxic and a cause of mental illness. (Manhood as Mental Disorder, Rod Dreher, The American Conservative, Jan. 7, 2019) 

The theological line of attack

“Christians are told that the Bible is unreliable, outdated, and morally backward. “Christian” scholars denying the complete truthfulness of Scripture concerning, for example, the historicity of Adam. Popular Christian speakers question the reality of hell; the necessity of faith in Jesus for salvation; or the very doctrine of the atonement won for them by Christ’s death or the righteousness won for them by his perfect life. “ Torres

An American truth famine:

But because God’s truth is always and everywhere present, it would be more accurate to say, instead of famine, that our generation is on a hunger strike. It is all self-inflicted, but we have not really lost the truth. The truth is all around us. We have lost the stomach for truth. We have lost the taste for truth. We have lost our love for truth. And as a consequence, we have also lost our minds.” (5)

Under the guiding hands of vicious Progressive Leftists, straight white men and orthodox Christians are subjected to fiendish psychological bullying while compromising ‘progressivized’ Christian intellectuals and thought-leaders move the church toward faithlessness. At the same time, the wicked are transforming America into a modern version of Sodom and Rome where sodomy was normal, boys were routinely corrupted and perverted by sadists, unwanted babies were sacrificed to the gods (demons), and powerful demoniacs controlled society.

Life in Progressivism’s Satanic City of Man  

On a daily basis, Christians are psychologically beaten and pressured to self-flagellate as a condition of surrender to the pagan ideology (James 3:15) of pagan ‘elites.’ When Christians give into worldly pressure and ideology it means they’ve submitted their wills, hence their minds, bodies, and children to wicked men and the evil spirits working through them. Surrender means living a lie and falling into a bottomless pit of depravity and insanity, such as acceptance of gender neutral terms like partner, gender queer, gender non-conforming, misgender, two spirit, hir, hirself, zir, and zirself rather than man, woman, husband, wife, mother, and father. The world calls the surrender of will, mind, and body ‘brain washing.’

Christians who prove to be resistant will come under even greater pressure. Since it is their love of Truth (John 1:1,2) and goodness, their humility, self-sacrificial love, and ability to suffer that makes them resistant they will persevere despite being declared insane. But for those who are losing the will to resist or have already submitted their wills,

ask the Lord to awaken you from your slumbers and rescue you from the grip of your seductive captor.” James Torres

Apollyon, Beelzebul and the City of Man

The City of Man is characterized by insanity and evil. It is a hell-on-earth of depravity and madness where “good has been turned into something bad or evil and evil has become good.” and where people must further submit to the insanity that they are to tolerate and actually have “a kind of mercy towards people who want to do evil to our society,” but be “very angry with people who tell the truth.” (Danish journalist Iben Thranholm, cited in “Revolution Against God: What Happens Now That Europe and the West Turned Their Backs on Christianity?” Nancy Flory, The Stream, June 8, 2019)

The City of Man is under the control and influence of Apollyon, the angel of the bottomless pit, and Beelzebul, the prince of demons and his legions of evil spirits.  Though citizens of the City of Man believe they are sovereign, in reality they are in bondage to Apollyon, Beelzebul, and his evil legions. These evil spirits have relieved citizens of the onerous tasks of having to think for themselves and make moral decisions in return for permission to sin freely without the burden of either guilt or shame.

This is why Americans who submit their wills to Progressive Leftists in exchange for a life of sin are in danger of losing their minds and their souls:

Whatever is must also be (ontologically) good. And it follows from this that whatever loses its goodness ceases to be. Thus wicked men cease to be what they were…To give oneself to evil…is to lose one’s human nature. Just as virtue can raise a person above human nature, so vice lowers those whom it has seduced from the condition of men beneath human nature….In this way, anyone who abandons virtue creases to be a man, since he cannot share in the divine nature, and instead becomes a beast.” Boethius’s Consolation of Philosophy (6)

Worse Is Yet To Come

There are no principles—not ethical, moral, constitutional, religious, spiritual—NONE.  There’s only power. And when we get the power, everybody else f***ing duck.”  (Jeffrey Wright, Heavy-hitter lefty actor warns what they have in mind for us when they win power, Thomas Lifson, American Thinker, May 30, 2019)

Up to now compromising and pandering Christian intellectuals, thought-leaders and their followers have been bending the knee before a furious demonic onslaught of slander, spite, malice, hatred, intolerance, name-calling, and fear of isolation. As bad as this has been, worse is yet to come, warned Pastor Andrew Brunson who was imprisoned in Turkey for his Christian faith. In an address before the Southern Baptist Convention Pastor Brunson said the next generation is going to experience even more intense Christian persecution:

"I don't think that we're prepared for what is coming," "Especially the next generation, I fear that many of us are complacent and we're unaware and this means that the people in our churches are going to be blindsided by what comes. You are the ones as pastors and leaders of churches who have the task of preparing the next generation." "Many of you are going to have the opportunity to stand in that line of suffering and you have to prepare yourself for that.” (Pastor Imprisoned in Turkey for his Christian Faith says Youth Aren’t Prepared for What is Coming,” Caleb Parke, Fox News, June 13, 2019)

Already we are living in evil times. But whatever the future holds, no matter how evil, the faithful must persevere in faith to our Lord Jesus Christ, for neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present,

nor things to come, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.…” (Romans 8: 38-39)

Gender Justice: Construct of Progressivism's New Gnostic Pagan Religion

The Washington State Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Barronelle Stutzman, a Christian florist, broke the state’s anti-discrimination law when she refused to provide floral arrangements for a 2013 a gay wedding ceremony.

Mrs. Stutzman, a Southern Baptist grandmother, could face the loss of her business, her life savings and her home:

The state not only went after Barronelle’s business but also sued her in her personal capacity—putting all her personal assets, including her life savings, at risk,” said Alliance Defending Freedom’s Kristen Waggoner, who argued on Stutzman’s behalf before the Washington Supreme Court in 2016.”  (Court Rules Christian Florist Broke Law by Refusing to Participate in Gay Wedding, Todd Starnes, June 6, 2019)

Behind the political lurks Marxist Communism’s counterpart—-Progressivism’s 'new' Gnostic pagan religion. A syncretization of every nature religion from Babylon forward together with Christianity, it holds that the Triune God of Scripture is not the true God but rather an evil demiurge, the monster responsible for creating the material world. The true god is the One Substance from which emanated all things in existence, making creation ex nihilo an evil construct of the demiurge. Thus in the beginning was the Depth; the Fullness of Being; the Not-Being God; the First Father, the Monad; the First Source.

Within this context, modern Gnostics believe there are two kinds of humans. There are the subhuman men and women (two sexes) who believe that the God of Scripture is the one true God and Creator. They are the evil seed of the evil demiurge. Then there are the Gnostics, the 'woke' humans who know that they contain within themselves divine sparks of the androgynous Monad, making them 'gods' whose maleness or femaleness are illusions.

Social justice, or gender justice needs to be understood within the context of Progressive Gnostic religion wherein ‘woke’ humans are the Monads avenging angels punishing the demiurge’s evil seed on behalf of oppressed Gnostics who have as yet to awaken.. In this light social justice means punishment of subhumans who worship the evil demiurge and hold to the idea of two sexes when the Gnostic ideal is transgender.

James 3:15--An American Pastor Prays To Progressivism’s Golden Calf

Dan Freemyer, the pastor of Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth has obviously been drinking very deeply of Progressive Leftism’s poisonous propaganda of the lie. To cheers from the crowd at Baylor University’s 2019 commencement, Freemyer delivered a poison-loaded prayer to a ‘god’ that is not the Holy Triune God but pagan Progressivism's golden calf: 

God, give them the moral imagination to reject the old keys we are trying to give them to a planet that we are poisoning by running it on fossil fuels and misplaced priorities – a planet with too many straight, white men like me behind the steering wheel while others have been expected to sit quietly in the back of the bus.”  (Baylor University Prayer Denounces ‘Straight White Men,’ Todd Starnes, May 24, 2019)

Progressive Leftism: Gnostic Paganism

Gnostic pagan Progressivism is a religiously held view of a dehumanizing one-dimensional reality that stands in opposition to the Bibles two interacting dimensions, the natural and supernatural.  The one-dimensional view is monism, or naturalism, and means that everything that exists, including human beings, are merely parts or aspects of the evolving natural dimension.

 Naturalism means on one hand that the supernatural Holy Triune God who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo (Gen. 1), the 3rd heaven, man as His spiritual image-bearer, original sin, hell, and the devil and his evil minions either do not exist or are myths from man's pre-scientific past. On the other hand, Progressivism believes it’s true that certain men are in process of becoming gods, artificial intelligence is becoming conscious of itself, and highly evolved deep space beings – themselves the emergent product of the universal life force (aka the Force, Zoë, evolution, vril, serpent power, seething energies of Lucifer) acting on matter almost certainly exist according to prominent scientist Stephen Hawking and many others.

 Like its violent counterpart Marxist Communism, Progressivism emerged over time out of a Renaissance rebellion against the Holy Triune God, Jesus Christ in particular.  It was during the Renaissance that the Word (John 1:1), our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, was rejected in favor of ancient occult wisdom teachings and Gnostic pagan christ-consciousness when certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated 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 powers through ritual procedures is the best proof of the divinity of Christ. In other words said Molnar,

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

 During the 17th century Progressivism delved into spiritism, absorbed Darwinism, science as a replacement bible, socialism as a new evangelism, Romanticism, and the philosophy of Rousseau.  According to the morally corrupt Rousseau, economic freedom (capitalism), private property, the traditional family, and the complexity of modern society were agents of moral decay.  

 In short, Progressivism is a godless, philosophically pagan form of ancient Mysteries, Egyptian Hermetic magic, and heretical Jewish elements.  Evolution---one of its indispensable doctrines---is derived from heretical Protestant liberalism's inverse, anti-creation account grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary, apocalyptic proclamation of a coming new order (Godless global socialism) based in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, and finally god-man as well as in the perfectibility of man and this fallen world. Therefore a leading goal and principle of utopian religion is the repudiation,

 “…of the doctrine of Original Sin." (H.G. Wells, A Modern Utopia, 1905)

 Repudiating original sin requires the death of the transcendent Triune God and erasure of original creation, a magic trick achieved by way of Gnostic Progressivism’s inverse evolutionary origin account (Darwinism) disguised as science.  Darwin's inverse exegesis of gradual evolutionary emergence of life from matter is taken by Progressives as final proof that the universe is governed, not by the divine will of the Word (John 1:1; 14:6) who created humans out of dust,

"...but by a virtually divine force Darwin called natural selection.  Having produced human consciousness, evolution may now...be brought directly under the control of its own product, Humanity, the accomplishment of natural selection..." (The Making of the New Spirituality, James Herrick, p. 150)

 The contemporary progressive left holds that non-socialist societies are composed largely of oppressed victims and their racist, homophobic Christian oppressors who stubbornly cling to the Triune God, the Bible and their guns in the great fly-over zones of America. This is why Progressives view the United States and orthodox Christianity as evils that must—at all costs—be destroyed.

 Not only must the old evil Christian-based order be thoroughly destroyed but as well, its corrupt leaders and supporters must be punished and destroyed.  Toward this end, the Progressive Left wields its will-to-power mainly through media and academia to change our perception of reality so as to manipulate gullible, unquestioning Americans and Christians to view straight-white men, and orthodox Christians as racially and LGBTQ+ bigots deserving of shame, shunning, and eventual annihilation since only after purification of the world of all evil will a utopian socialist City of Man rise like a phoenix out of the ashes of the old order.  In the golden age of utopian ideals to come perfect social justice and equality will exist under benevolent god-men.

 Deception, Lies, Propaganda, Misdirection

 The contemporary Progressive Left knows that in order to capture the hearts and minds of their enemies-- such as Dan Freemyer and Baylor’s cheering crowd---it must deliberately deceive them, and because it is conscienceless and thoroughly amoral it disguises its hatred, lust for power, death-wishing and quest for revolutionary destruction in the soothing terminology of traditional Western values such as human rights, civil liberties, and civil rights. But for Progressive god-men these hated values are just masking words for social justice, economic justice (redistribution of wealth and resources), eugenics (abortion, infanticide, euthanasia), and gender justice. 

 Gender justice requires the destruction of the Holy Creator God’s creational norms and sexual distinctions between men and women in order that socialism's New Man—a polymorphous androgyne, or transgender—can come into being.  

 It is toward this satanically ambitious, wholly delusional goal that modern Progressive elites direct their energy, powers, policies, propaganda, and crusades. This is why progressive ‘elites’ and their depraved followers are waging a brutal no-holds-barred war to crush opponents such as President Trump and his supporters in their quest for absolute power and authority to micromanage every facet of human life in a scientifically planned global City of Man.

 Progressive Leftism: A Delusion From Hell  

 Progressive Leftism is a depraved, Christ hating, murderous ideology from hell. During the twentieth-century its sadistic Marxist Communist counterpart slaughtered in excess of 130,000,000 men, women, and children—more than half of them Christian--in its delusional quest for an earthly utopian Godless City of Man…the golden calf Pastor Freemyer prayed to and for. 

The Revealed Word of God exposes the delusion, madness, malice, hatred, lies, will-to-power, and death-wishing hiding behind masks worn by Progressive Leftists.

They are dead in their “trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1. They walk:

“…according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience” (v. 2) "And because they did not think it worthwhile to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong. They are filled with all unrighteousness, evil, greed, and wickedness. They are full of envy, murder, disputes, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, arrogant, proud, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, and unmerciful. Although they know full well God's just sentence - that those who practice such things deserve to die - they not only do them, but even applaud others who practice them" (Ro. 1:28-32)

Revelation 22:12--- The Reward of the Evil and the Reward of the Faithful

In these increasingly evil days orthodox Christianity is under attack on all sides. Throughout certain areas of the world deadly attacks are at or near genocidal levels.

 Behind these attacks are Christ-hating Progressive Leftists and Progressive liberal 'Christians” (unbelievers pretending to be Christian) united in an unholy alliance with Islamists to achieve the eradication of faithful orthodox Christianity in favor of a one world pantheist religion in a borderless, polymorphously perverse gender-fluid earthly paradise where depravity reigns and predators prey openly and freely upon the helpless.

 Christ-haters and their followers are travelers of the wide, crooked way thus hate the narrow way and its pilgrims. They have their own ever-unfolding menu of privileges which they call 'rights,' their own version of the Golden Rule and of what constitutes good, such as their 'choice' to deny life to the inconvenient, to practice their own pansexual 'love,' and to live parasitic lives at the expense of the productive. As they are autonomous and morally-perfect in their own eyes they travele their own sovereign roads and expect the God of Revelation and everyone else to accept and tolerate them — to put up and shut up. This being the case, they resent the living God and blame Him for not accepting them just as they are, for not jumping through hoops for them, for not seeing things their way.

 On the other hand, the travelers of the narrow way think that anyone would be delighted to live in heaven at first, and then one day on the renewed earth, Paradise. Yet the things of heaven and Paradise that bring unspeakable joy to Christ’s children bring immense pain to the envious travelers of the crooked way.

In The Great Divorce, C.S. Lewis shows that heaven is a place of eternal joy, of unbelievably beautiful happy people, colors, music, flowers, singing birds, delicious food, and never-ending light unencumbered by misery. This last is an especially good insight, for the crooked love misery and demand that others share their misery, which in the end means spending eternity in hell. In fact, the paradise-bound often feel that their joys and blessings must be constrained, denigrated and even hidden from the burning gaze of the envious, that they ought to share the miseries of the envious lest they be accused of hate, narrow-minded intolerance, selfishness, homophobia, racism, and bigotry. Yet Lewis, speaking through the voice of George MacDonald, reveals that hatred of the good underlies the demands of envious self-idolaters:

"That sounds very merciful: but see what lurks behind it?" "What?" "The demand of the loveless and the self-imprisoned that they should be allowed to blackmail the universe: that till they consent to be happy (on their own terms) no one else shall taste joy: that theirs should be the final power; that Hell should be allowed to veto Heaven." (The Great Divorce)

 V-Day for the Crooked

 Sensing triumph, it is with a consensus of lies brazenly legalized by broken, twisted laws enforced by psychological manipulation, propaganda of the lie, public shaming, shunning, and violence, that even the blackest, most vile wickedness is being forced by arrogant, conscienceless, crooked Christ-haters and their depraved followers upon decent, law-abiding Americans, Christians, and their children: 

 “Downright Sickening: CA Preps Graphic Sex ED with Bondage, ‘Blood Play,’ and K-3 Gender Queer”    

 A book for kindergarten through third, 

 “teaches that they can be a boy, girl, neither, gender queer or gender fluid and that adults might not understand their gender identity (while) a book for fourth, fifth and sixth-grade boys discusses slang words for genitals and explains masturbation and sexual fantasies.”  A third book for high school students “introduces sex acts for all sexual orientations and introduces the concepts of bondage, body fluid, blood play, fisting and other sexual behaviors once considered to be acts of debauchery.”  (CBN News, Heather Sells, May 1, 2019)

 But in the midst of terrible suffering, the Lord Jesus Christ comforts His faithful children: 

 "Behold, I am coming quickly. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of prophecy in this book.” (Rev. 22:7)  

 "Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of prophecy in this book, because the time is near. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each one according to what he has done.”  Rev. 22:10-12

 Thus as the Light fades to black throughout the soulless wasteland that once was Christendom and Protestant America, the power and violence of the satanic will work its will through envious Christ-haters and their depraved followers and they will sow and reap their own eternal destiny in hell.   Damnation--this is their eternal reward.

 For all of the faithful who persevere there will be a new heaven and a new earth:

 “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying: “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man, and He will live with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the former things have passed away. And the One seated on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ Then He said, ‘Write this down, for these words are faithful and true.” (Rev. 21:3-5, Berean Study Bible)

 Paradise— this is the eternal reward of the faithful.

Satanic Voodoo: Source of Christian Rock Music

Religion has been the foundation stone and source of higher ethics for every civilization that has ever existed.   When this foundation is destroyed  society disintegrates and dies.  The dying culture actually annihilates itself as it falls into institutionalized Satanism in its' every manifestation:  rejection of the Triune God, break-down of family, hedonism, defiance, rebelliousness and lawlessness.   Satanism inverts and reverses truth, rules, standards and authority whether Divine or temporal and unleashes sexual perversions, pre-occupation with self and personal power, nihilism, irrationalism, the occult, decadence, pornography, violence, and killing.   

Cultures which have lost their spiritual roots are dying cultures, and this is the case with the post-Christian West and America, which is witnessing the withering and collapse of  Christian denominations and higher moral law.  In the resulting soulless wasteland:

"The power and violence of the satanic is something which youngsters bereft of hope, and with a stunted conscience, can easily gravitate.  Children who find it difficult to identify a coherent value system, or who were raised with no values at all, still must identify with something...All children---and in a very large sense teenagers are yet children----give heed to the feeling of a Higher Power.  Troubled and abused youngsters, through a sort of insidious imprinting of experience, believe the Higher Power must be evil.  Heavy metal affirms this 'theology' and institutionalizes it in the music." (Painted Black, Carl A. Raschke, p. 275)
 
Carl Raschke is  Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver, specializing in  Continental philosophy, the philosophy of religion and the theory of  religion.   He is an internationally  known writer and academic who has authored numerous books and hundreds of  articles on topics ranging from postmodernism to popular religion and culture  to technology and society.  He is also a leading authority on America's subculture of darkness, which he fully documents in his landmark book, "Painted Black."

Raschke's chilling book presents the frightening facts and cases behind an invisible wave of evil sweeping over our dying culture,  capturing our youth by their minds and parents by their hearts.  In part three he documents the epidemic of violence connected to fantasy role-playing games and heavy metal music, "audio pornography at extreme decibels:'

"The strains of violence, fury, hate, insurrection, primitive sex, and, as the kids call it, 'head-banging' in heavy metal music cements a neural bond with all stripes of alienated adolescence.  The incitement of heavy metal....is markedly increased when an adolescent abuses drugs (for then) the music instantly becomes the most impressive furniture in the mental housing of chemically dependent youth. The chemically dependent adolescent adopts a life-style of swagger, brutality, theft, and sexual-excess---all of which is reinforced by the yowling and bellowing of the metal groups." (pp. 274, 276)

"Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll:” The Revolutionary Overthrow of America

The years 1964-1965 witnessed the onset of a moral revolution:

In quick and stunning sequence, the family in America came under fresh assault from: the new feminists; the advocates of population control; sexual radicals; the "counter-culture"; and the "New Left.”

Before the decade was over America had undergone a complete moral and legal inversion, the consequences of which are still unfolding today. (Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Family Policy Legacy of the 60’s, Family Research Council, May 8, 2015)

Satanic Source of Rock Music

In his 1984 book, "The Secret Power of Music," secular researcher David Tame traces rock music to its' satanic roots in Africa as well as revealing  extensive scientific research demonstrating the destructive effects of rock music on both mind and  body : 

"Were we to scour the globe in search of the most aggressively  malevolent and unmistakably evil music in existence, it is more than likely  that nothing would be found anywhere to surpass voodoo  in these attributes ... as the rhythmic accompaniment to satanic rituals and  orgies, voodoo is the quintessence of tonal evil. ... Its multiple rhythms,  rather than uniting into an integrated whole, are performed in a certain kind  of conflict with one another. ... What is certain is that to hear this music  is to become instantly encompassed by the sound of its raw, livid power. ...  Musicologists and historians are in no doubt that the drum rhythms of Africa  were carried to America and were transmitted and translated into the style of  music which became known as jazz. Since jazz and the blues were the parents of rock and roll, this also means that there exists a direct line of descent from the voodoo ceremonies of Africa, through jazz, to rock and roll and all other forms of rock music today." (pp. 189-190)

Tame reveals that rock music affects digestion, internal secretions, circulation, nutrition, respiration and neural networks of the brain:

 "Researchers have discovered that consonant and dissonant chords,  different intervals, and other features of music all  exert a profound effect upon man's pulse and respiration -- upon their rate  and upon whether their rhythm is constant, or interrupted and jumpy. Blood  pressure is lowered by sustained chords and raised by crisp, repeated ones. ...It has also been found that the tension of the larynx is affected by  melodies, that sound stimuli can have a negative effect upon the skeletal  muscles, that rock rhythms cause the heart beat to lose its perfect rhythm,  and that certain rhythms can even cause a rare malady known as "musicogenic  epilepsy"  with which some of its  victims have been tormented to the point of committing suicide or murder. ... We can see, then, that music affects the body in two distinct ways: directly, as the effect of sound upon the cells and organs, and indirectly, by affecting the emotions, which then in turn influence numerous bodily processes."   (p. 137)

Musicologist Alice Monsarrat points out that it,

 "....is precisely at this point that rock 'n' roll ... becomes potentially  dangerous. This is because, to maintain a sense of well-being and integration,  it is essential that man is not subjected too much to any rhythms not in  accord with his natural bodily rhythms" ( p. 199)

Tame writes that like human nature itself, music cannot possibly be neutral in its  spiritual direction,

"... ultimately all uses of tone  and all musical lyrics can be classified according to their  spiritual direction, upward or downward. ... To put it plainly, music tends to  be of either the darkness or of the light."   "In his famous work, Laws, Plato lamented the musical revolution of his time and its "unmusical  anarchy": 'Through foolishness they deceived themselves into  thinking that there was no right or wrong in music -- that it was to be judged  good or bad by the pleasure it gave. By their work and their theories they  infected the masses with the presumption to think themselves adequate judges.  ... As it was, the criterion was not music, but a reputation for promiscuous  cleverness and a spirit of law-breaking" (pp. 187, 189).

With a clear-eyed discernment  lacking in most  Christians today, Tame concludes,

"More than any  other form of the misuse of sound, it is rock with which we must deal today.  ... It is a global phenomenon; a pounding, pounding destructive beat which is  heard from America and Western Europe to Africa and Asia. Its effect upon the  soul is to make nigh-impossible the true inner silence and peace necessary for  the contemplation of eternal verities. ... How necessary is it in this age for some to have the courage to be the ones who are 'different,' and to separate themselves out from the pack who long ago sold their lives and personalities to this sound....I adamantly believe that rock in all its forms is a critical problem which our civilization must get to grips...if it wishes long to survive." (p. 204)

A sub-genre of rock is psychedelic rock. It emerged in the 1960’s and was strongly influenced by the psychedelic culture of the time and psychedelic (psychotropic) drugs, such as LSD and shrooms. Among top ten psychedelic rock bands are the Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Iron Butterfly, and Led Zeppelin.

Noted German theologian Kurt Koch (1913-1987) agrees with David Tames conclusions.  An expert in the occult, Koch pastored and counseled those suffering from occult oppression in its various forms in 65 countries and 5 continents.  In "Occult ABC: Exposing Occult Practices and Ideologies,"  Koch writes that from his travels in South America and Africa, he learned first-hand that rock music is the kind of music used in cultic dances:

"Primitive people dance themselves into a frenzy to such music, often ending in sexual orgies." (p. 180)

Koch observes that there is a kind of music which uplifts and a kind which destroys all that is good and drags people down, and this includes Christian rock music:

"There is a music which has divine inspiration, and music which has demonic inspiration." (p. 181)

Ex-rocker Bob Larsen  concurs.  Rock music has a spirit,

"which comes from dark and muddy waters.  It cannot be cleansed and used for the Holy Spirit." (Koch, p. 182)

After leaving his rock music days behind, Larsen became an evangelist.  When he spoke to rock fans he found they agreed:

"You are on the right track.  Go on as you are.  We all feel something of the demonism of this music." (p. 182)

But when he spoke in churches, where truth and spiritual discernment should be found, he was attacked.    In a sign of the times in which we live, spiritually blind Christians will teach about spiritual warfare even while assuring evangelists like Larsen that rock music,

"...can be used for the gospel, too." (p. 182)

Koch notes that Larsen's discovery that where the truth ought to be found, it is rejected, and where it is not expected it is accepted, means nothing less than that a rock fan is nearer to the kingdom of God than some elders of the church.  This is a present-day version of the words of Jesus:

"The tax-gatherers and prostitutes go into the kingdom of God sooner than the hypocritical Pharisees." (p. 182)

As David Tame reveals,  there exists a direct line of descent from the demonic voodoo ceremonies of Africa, through jazz, to rock and roll and all other forms of rock music today.  And this includes Christian rock, which like its' parent is not of the Holy Spirit but of an unholy spirit.  This is why it causes confusion, anger, contention, and division among Christians, said Gordon Sears in his booklet, "Is Today's Christian Music 'Sacred'?"

If Christian rock is of God, as many Christians contend,  then why, asked Sears, is it:

(1) ....causing so much confusion and division among Christians?

(2) Why is it not received by all orthodox Bible-believing churches?

(3) Why is it readily accepted by the non-Christian world? The ungodly  never accepted the old Christian hymns

(4) Why is it that Bible-denying universities and popular secular TV  entertainment shows invite well-known Christian artists to give concerts with  Christian rock? This never happened with the great spiritual hymns

(5) Why are there hundreds of churches with godly pastors across America  that strictly reject it and forbid it in their services?

(6) Why does it have such a strong effect upon the physical body?

 Speaking of the growing divisions among Americans and between Christians, David Tame observes that in contemporary American society there stands in one corner the ancients and in the other the traditionalists.  Traditionalists hold  that music affects character and society, therefore the artist has a  duty to be morally responsible and constructive, not immoral and destructive.  Standing in the opposite corner against the traditionalists, are the lawless ancients (neo-pagans, pantheists)  disclaiming personal responsibility and need  for moral judgments, and paying no heed to the consequences of their yowling, disharmonious sounds.

Throughout contemporary secularized America, the second  camp contains not only the antinomian progressive avant-garde, but the entire mass of American moral relativists, both within and without the Church.

Kurt Koch is not surprised by any of this.  He writes that the Bible tells us that in latter days people will give heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons:

"...demons are capable of finding people to speak through.  Many rock musicians have allowed themselves to be used as the mouthpieces of demons." (Occult ABC, p. 182)

Satanic influence is very strong throughout America’s dying, fracturing society and in the popular music field in particular.   And undiscerning Christians have brought it right into God's House where it divides Christians and hastens both the death of the Church and the foundation-stone of American society.

Matthew 21:19---The Self-Destruction of France and the Coming Doom of Western Christianity

"And seeing a fig tree by the wayside, he went to it and found nothing on it but only leaves. And he said to it, “May no fruit ever come from you again!” And the fig tree withered at once.”    Matthew 21:19

 Though the fig tree represents the state of Israel and the Jews in particular and the blindness and hardness that came upon them after they had rejected Christ, Matthew Henry applies the dire warnings of this parable to our own time, “Let us greatly fear the doom denounced on the barren fig-tree.”

 In the sense of the symbolism and warnings of the parable, modern secular France—which has rejected Jesus Christ in favor of autonomy, defiance, rebellion, hedonism and other idols—- though at one time at the glorious epicenter of Christian Europe has for more than three hundred years been gradually self-destructing:

 "The results of French secularism are visible. Christianity has been almost completely wiped out from public life. Churches are empty. The number of priests is decreasing and the priests that are active in France are either very old or come from Africa or Latin America. The dominant religion in France is now Islam. Every year, churches are demolished to make way for parking lots or shopping centers. Mosques are being built all over, and they are full. Radical imams proselytize. The murder, three years ago, of Jacques Hamel, an 85-year-old priest who was slaughtered by two Islamists while he was saying mass in a church where only five people (three of them old nuns) were present, is telling.”  (The Burning of Notre Dame and the Destruction of Christian Europe, Guy Milliere, Apr. 22, 2019, American Greatness)

 With its magnificent yet slowly decaying and emptying cathedrals and churches, and its godless ruling class and impenitent and unbelieving people intent upon committing demographic suicide, modern secular France is the cursed fig tree. Thus in its madness and its darkened, self-destructing state it also represents self-destructing Western Christianity and its coming doom if it doesn’t turn back to the Lord Jesus Christ:

 “The symbolism of the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral, the most renowned building in Western civilization, the iconic symbol of Western Christendom, is hard to miss.

It is as if God Himself wanted to warn us in the most unmistakable way that Western Christianity is burning—and with it, Western civilization..”  Dennis Prager

Dan. 5:25---The Writing is on the Wall for America's Obscene Sodom and Gomorrah

"The handwriting is on the wall. You need only reflect on how a screaming mob managed to conjure up total surrender from Indiana Gov. Mike Pence so he would reject that state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Catholic Charities is closing its adoption services where same-sex marriage laws pressure them to reject their church’s teachings about marriage and family. Owners of businesses that serve the wedding industry are being forced to either scrap their consciences or shut their doors. Anti-discrimination lawsuits against churches that don’t perform same-sex marriages will undoubtedly increase."  (Stella Morabito, "15 Reasons 'Marriage Equality' is About Neither Marriage Nor Equality")

The writing on the wall is God’s Judgement upon America’s rising Sodom and Gomorrah, the work of depraved God-hating utopians for whom sado-masochism, bondage, and the public sharing of bodily fluids is openly practiced in some of America’s top hotels:

If you had plans to take your kids to downtown Cleveland over the weekend of April 25-28, don’t – unless you want them to receive a quick and nightmarish tutorial about where the “LGBTQ” agenda really takes America: into a filthy sewer where It’s a large orgy of homosexual males focused on “sado-masochism” and “bondage.” Think ropes, chains, erotic asphyxiation, suspension by hooks, cutting, etc….in the meeting rooms of the Westin, Hampton Inn, Cleveland Marriott, etc., there will be activities and “workshops” (a.k.a., orgies) involving blood, feces, urine, semen and – when people realize what they are doing – possibly vomit.” (Convention at Major U.S. Hotels Showcases Extreme Sexual Depravity, Linda Harvey, WND, April 4, 2019)

By the end of WW II progressive God-haters and like-minded revolutionaries had already begun the insidious work of disintegrating and transforming America from one nation under God into a banana republic run by gender-fluid moral imbeciles fueled by destructive impulses. A very similar transformation happened in Germany immediately prior to Nazis taking over that country and in Russia prior to its takeover by Communists. 

The first demands for normalization of lesbianism, pedophilia, pederasty, sodomy, transgender, same-sex marriage, sex reassignment surgery, and the right to cross-dress were not made in "progressively enlightened" post-Christian America but in Communist controlled Russia, as revealed in the article, "1920s Soviet Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals." It was also reported that masculinized, cross-dressing lesbians were rewarded with influential positions of authority and influence throughout academia, the Red Army, and in the cultural arena:  
 
"...women of the masculinized type (cross-dressing army commanders, for instance) were considered with fascination and indulgence." (workers.org) 
 
The same article bashes backward Christian America for not allowing the mainstreaming of gender-bending and perversion:
 
"That same year (1923) in the U.S., where anti-sodomy laws aimed to padlock closet doors, the FBI labeled anarchist Emma Goldman the most dangerous woman in America because of her vocal support for gay rights and other forms of social equality."

According to a pamphlet entitled "The Sexual Revolution in Russia," Soviet sexologists in the 1920s participated in the international movement for sexual reform that was later spearheaded by former President Obama, the State Department and many other federal departments:
 
" Soviet legislation bases itself on the following principle: it declares the absolute non-interference of the State and society into sexual matters as long as nobody is injured, and no ones interests are encroached upon. Concerning homosexuality, sodomy, and various other forms of sexual gratification, which are set down in European legislation as offenses against public morality---Soviet legislation treats these the same as so-called natural intercourse." (Soviet Union in the 1920s: Scientific, not Utopian, workers.org)

The Communist fantasy of a Godless, morals free utopia, populated by the androgynous New Man collapsed into a hellish nightmare. It was a scene straight out of hell: while at least sixty-million men, women and children were being tortured and murdered, hordes of conscienceless children of the Mother-Father State were wreaking havoc and crime upon cities and towns in tandem with an epidemic of lying, lawlessness, sex slavery, prostitution, bathroom culture and other forms of gross debauchery issuing in outright chaos over-spread Russia.
 
After years of revolution and famine the economy was severely damaged, and with the death of the family--the building block of society---both economy and culture collapsed. Too late, fantasy-believing Communist planners realized that without the family, there is no future. 
 
As the full-force of utopian madness fell upon Russia, revulsion and horror set in allowing a semblance of sanity to return, thus in a desperate attempt to revive the family, attempts were made to rein in easy divorce, abortion on demand and sexual debauchery. Divorce and abortion were made more difficult to acquire and by 1923, the homosexual right to harass straight men for sex became a crime. Then in 1927, the right to engage in sodomy was criminalized as was the right to keep bachi--cross-dressed, feminized boy dancers used as prostitutes. The death knell rang in 1934 when both homosexuality and prostitution were declared crimes punishable by up to 8 years in prison. (Women in the Soviet Union, Jen Pickard, Youth for International Socialism) 
 
The Soviet Unions birth-to-death rate continued to fall however, so by the 1980's Gorbachev attempted yet more reforms. In a desperate bid to undo dysfunctional gender-bending and restore natural male-female relations in hope of bringing the family back to life, a course entitled, "The Ethics and Psychology of Family Life" was introduced into schools and shown on television. Its objective was to reinforce traditional roles. Teachers were urged to "train and train again, girls to be girls and boys to be boys."(ibid) 

Shortly after President Reagan made his now famous 'evil empire' speech March 8, 1983, the Soviet Union imploded. Despite all reform efforts, Russia's birth-to-death replacement rate continued to fall. Confronted by the chilling prospect of a "dead" Russia, in a last ditch effort Vladimir Putin adopted a pro-birth policy that pays families to have at least a second child if not more. Additionally, stay-at-home mothers receive 40% of their former salary and families with two children will receive a lump sum of $9000.

At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a “godless nation.”  More than two decades on, history has come full circle, as the Kremlin and its allies in the Russian Orthodox Church hurl the same allegation at the West.   In a keynote speech Russian President Vladimir Putin said:

Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values...Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.”  (Divine Freedom Radio, Feb. 21, 2014)

In his state of the nation address in mid-December, Mr. Putin also portrayed Russia as a staunch defender of “traditional values” against what he depicted as the morally bankrupt West. Social and religious conservatism, the former KGB officer insisted, is the only way to prevent the world from slipping into “chaotic darkness.” As part of this defense of “Christian values,” Russia has adopted a law banning “homosexual propaganda” and another that makes it a criminal offense to “insult” the religious sensibilities of believers.

Mr. Putin’s views of the West were echoed by Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, the leader of the Orthodox Church who accused Western countries of engaging in the “spiritual disarmament” of their people. In particular, Patriarch Kirill criticized laws in several European countries that prevent believers from displaying religious symbols, including crosses on necklaces, at work:

The general political direction of the [Western political] elite bears, without doubt, an anti-Christian and anti-religious character...We have been through an epoch of atheism, and we know what it is to live without God...” “We want to shout to the whole world, ‘Stop!’”  “The separation of the secular and the religious is a fatal mistake by the West.... It is a monstrous phenomenon that has occurred only in Western civilization and will kill the West, both politically and morally.” (ibid)
 
Even as a dying Russia strives mightily to restore and protect the institutions of traditional marriage and family so that it might live, America---under pressure from obviously insane, godless Progressive utopianists---is steadfastly killing these vital life-giving institutions while simultaneously waging a war of attrition against their source: the Holy Triune God, the Bible and orthodox Christianity. In the name of scientism, Darwinism, progress, change, tolerance, inclusion, diversity, and orientation, America is casting herself into the very grave from which Russia seeks escape, hence the writing on the wall. (Dan. 5:25)

The "New" Post-Homophobic Christianity

In the wake of the Supreme Court Obergefell v. Hodges  ruling a collection of celebrities in Hollywood and professional American athletes rejoiced over the decision.   Olympic figure skater Johny Weir wrote, Marriage equality in all 50 states! Congratulations America! Brimming with pride.  Football player Scott Fujita tweeted, Resist the urge to engage in debate with those in opposition to equality. There is NO MORE debate. Just rejoice and celebrate this moment.  Pop icon Madonna tweeted, “Finally And at Last! The Revolution Of Love has Begun! #livingforlove #rebelheartsunite”  While former Disney Channel actress turned music star, Demi Levota wrote, “I couldn’t be more proud to be an American today… What an incredible day for equality!!!!”   (1)

In "The New Post-Homophobic Christianity," a triumphant Sally Kohn notes that since the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges  the vast majority of Americans are saying, “Hallelujah!” With the endorsement of "Gay Pride" by the Episcopalian Church, the Presbyterian Church (USA) and many other major Christian denominations, post-homophobic Christianity  is indeed the new normal in America:  

"The world has changed. Christians and Christianity has changed, too. And again, I say, “Hallelujah!”  (thedailybeast, July 5, 2015)

Where compromising churches in Hitler's Germany proudly displayed Mein Kampf on altar tables next to the Cross of Christ, their counterpart today proudly flash the "Gay Pride" rainbow flag and like rainbow colored Pied Pipers lead the way in the “Open and Affirming” church movement that is sweeping through our nation like wildfire. 

In contrast to elated "Gay Pride" celebrants  the highly respected pastor John MacArthur soberly pointed out that no human court has the authority to redefine marriage, and the verdict does not change the God ordained reality of marriage. God was not defeated in this ruling.   Moreover, warned MacArthur, every marriage will be judged according to biblical grounds on the last day. Nothing will prevail against Him (Proverbs 21:30) and nothing will thwart the advance of His Kingdom (Dan. 4:35).  (An Open Letter to TMS Alumni, John MacArthur)

The Word of God has pronounced judgment on any nation that would reclassify evil as good, darkness as light, and bitter as sweet (Isaiah 5:20). Romans 1 clearly identifies the evidence for the wrath of God on a nation:

"...sexual immorality followed by homosexual immorality culminating in a reprobate mind. This most recent step reminds us that God’s wrath has come in full. We now see reprobate minds at every level of leadership – in the Supreme Court, the presidency, cabinet, legislature, press and culture." (ibid)

Though this looks to be the end of the America we have known and loved it is not the end of the story.  Whether we are in the next to the last chapter or the final chapter the heaven bound have the blessed assurance of already knowing how the story ends, meaning that for the heaven bound this veil of tears is the closest they will ever come to hell.  

But for the hell bound (Psalm 5: 9-10) the story ends differently.   In this world their choices reside in their own ever-unfolding menu of privileges which they call 'rights,' their own politically correct version of the Golden Rule and of what constitutes good, such as their 'choice' to deny life to the inconvenient, to practice their own pansexual 'love,' and to live parasitic lives at the expense of the productive. As they are not fallen but morally-perfect and autonomous they travel their own sovereign roads and expect the God of Revelation and everyone else to accept and tolerate them — to put up and shut up. This being the case, they resent the living God and blame Him for not accepting them just as they are, for not jumping through hoops for them, for not seeing things their way.  Therefore the Lord has given them what they want, meaning one life-time in this rapidly decaying world.  Thus this veil of tears is the closest thing to heaven they will ever experience.

Darwinism: Idol of Mind Symbolizing Hatred of Triune Creator God and Logical End of America

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma."   (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser)

As Pannekoek affirms, Darwin's mythological miracle-producing life and change-making evolutionary energy has destroyed the entire foundation of Christian theism. In supplanting Genesis 1-11, it has also destroyed biblical infallibility, transcendent moral law, sexual ethics, the gospel claims of Jesus Christ, and imago Dei, the source of man’s personhood and innate dignity.

In destroying the foundations of Christianity Darwinism has also destroyed the foundations of our Constitutional Republic, and by extension, America’s traditional culture.

In The 5000 Year Leap, author Cleon Skousen writes that most Americans in the early years of our Republic truly regarded the Constitution as a miracle, declaring that the formation and adoption of our new system of federal government represented a political achievement unprecedented in human history.

The Founders believed the Constitution was destined to bless all mankind, and that it was incumbent on their successors to preserve and defend our national charter.

Skousen details the 28 great ideas utilized by the Founders in the formulation of our Republic. While some were derived from the Romans and others from the Anglo-Saxons, the greatest and most important ideas are Biblical.  Of these the unique Biblical view of mankind is absolutely vital, for it’s precisely from this - the most radical view of man ever known in human history - that our personhood, liberties and rights derive.

In this view, man is an animal only in the sense that his body is of the natural realm. Spiritually, he transcends or rises above the natural realm because he is an embodied soul/spirit, and it is this part of him, his being, that is made in the spiritual image of his transcendent Creator (John 1).

Man thinks, reasons, and loves because his personal Tri-Personal Creator thinks, reasons, and loves. Unique to man is free will. He can choose to lie or tell the truth; to give into bad impulses or not give into them; to seek truth, beauty and goodness, or conversely, to seek lies, ugliness, and evil. 

Divinely endowed, mankind - unlike all other creatures - is capable of self-government so long as his ability to reason is morally informed at all times. There are only two created sexes, male and female, and there is only one human race. As all men are the creatures of the living Creator, not only do they comprise a spiritual brotherhood, but they are obviously meant to be free.

All of these truths were known by the Founders to be immutable, that is, good everywhere, in all times and not subject to change.  All together, these immutable truths were encapsulated by the Founders like this:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – Declaration of Independence

The Founders vigorously affirm throughout their writings, said Skousen,  

"that the foundation of all reality is the existence of the Creator, who is the designer of all things in nature and the promulgator of all the laws which govern nature. ” (A Miracle that Changed the World: The 5000 Year Leap, Principles of Freedom, p. 101)

The Triune Creator God is uncreated, eternally existing Reality. All else is His created reality. Scripture is clear that the work of creation ‘is always applied…to the whole, entire, full, complete Godhead,’ (1) meaning all three Persons of the Trinity. The Genesis account of creation ex nihilo reveals that man is a person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons. As a person man is endowed with innate dignity because created directly by the Creator God of Gen. 1 identified by the Apostle John as the Son of God (John 1:1). Thus primordial man was created with a superhuman intelligence and original nature from which Adam, hence all of us, fell away and to which we are called back.

But in declaring the death of the Foundation of all reality, wicked God-haters have undermined and brought down everything built upon that Foundation, thus “what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3)

Darwinism: Revitalized Pagan Myth

Darwin's materialist idea, which he received from his pagan grandfather, originated in the metaphysics of the ancient Ionians and Stoics during the sixth century BC while Teilhard de Chardin's spiritualized conception leapfrogs off of Darwin’s materialism into Vedanta monism. Both conceptions bristle with hostility toward and hatred of the living Holy Triune God, creation ex nihilo, and faithful orthodox Christianity. In their rejection of the Genesis account they teach instead a toxic dehumanizing inverted exegesis positing that man comes up from chemicals and lower creatures.

This upside-down view leads to three more poisons: a philosophy of relativism (hatred of truth), identity politics and intersectionality.  These poisons and many more are spawns of Darwinism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter, and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are humans going to become something else – maybe a divine superman, god-man, or super robot – but nothing can be said about multiple human races, the pedophile project, LGBTQ+ and the contemporary menu of 15-56 genders since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter that spontaneously generated itself from nothing.

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

The disintegration of man’s dignity as a creature of God is not the result of science, as evolutionary naturalists falsely claim, but rather the product of a depraved conscience that justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of freedom. It is hostility and outright hatred of the Holy God and His image-bearers disguised behind linguistic sophistry, the Orwellian-speak of rebellious, God-haters.

In the resulting void, everything—no matter how depraved– is now possible:

"Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated. The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit; he has ceased to act wisely and do good. He plots trouble while on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not reject evil." Psalm 36: 1-4 ESV

Nihilism

As a fortress of nihilism (meaninglessness), deconstruction and inversion, Darwinism conceptually transforms the seed of God into the seed of Satan within churches that embrace evolutionary theism:

"Darwin pointed out that no supernatural designer was needed; since natural selection could account for any known form of life, there was no room for a supernatural agency in its evolution."(Issues in Evolution, Julian Huxley, p. 45)  

"Evolution comprises all the stages of the development of the universe: the cosmic, biological, and human or cultural developments" (Changing Man, Theodosius Dobzhansky, 'Science, Vol. 155' Jan. 27, 1967, p. 409)

"Most enlightened persons now accept as a fact that everything in the cosmos — from heavenly bodies to human beings — has developed and continues to develop through evolutionary processes."(Humanistic Biology, Rene Dubos, American Scientist, Vol. 53, March, 1965, p. 6)

Darwinism and/or evolutionary thinking disguises its' hatred of the Holy Triune God and His image bearers by deceptively cloaking its’ true nature in the ‘kings new clothes’ of empirical science.   D. M. S. Watson, the Jodrell Professor of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy at University College, London (1921 to 1951) tacitly concurs. He publicly confessed that evolution,

“ . . . is accepted by zoologists not because it has been observed to occur or . . . can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible.” (December 10, 2011 by Vishal Mangalwadi, revelationmovement.com)

Evolution: A Myth From Hell

Evolution is a myth from hell promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance. Today evolution is a full-fledged anti-God, anti-creation alternative to orthodox Christianity.

“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

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned Christian researchers, apologists, and other watchmen have been pointing to the connections between Darwin's evolutionary theory and a spreading epidemic of narcissism, psychopathy, lying, power grabbing and lawlessness. In its turn this epidemic of evil fuels the debauchery, sexual perversion, hatred, despair, paranoia, psychosis, apathy and other spiritual pathologies underlying the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn and just born here in America, the malicious sexual perversion of our children, rampant hedonism, sodomy, crime, and rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use in the Godless 'evolutionized' West.

But for the most part, the warnings of watchmen have been ignored, derided, and mercilessly ridiculed by ignorant, hedonistic masses of Americans and haters of Jesus Christ.  Increasingly, this is also the case within the whole body of the church.   From the Roman Catholic to Eastern Orthodox, Southern Baptist, and Reformed church, evolutionary thinking is supplanting the absolute Authority and inerrant Word of God:

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

“…Christians who are seeking to correlate Scripture and science must be a ‘bigger tent’ than either the anti-scientific religionists or the anti-religious scientists. Even though in this paper I argue for the importance of belief in a literal Adam and Eve, I have shown here that there are several ways to hold that and still believe in God using EBP (evolutionary biological processes)”  (Creation, Evolution, and Christian Laypeople, Tim Keller, The Biologos Foundation)

The Logical End of America

Most of what contemporary Russia has to tell us about the violent, murderous evil in man’s nature and his hatred of the Creator God and Truth, can be seen in Solzhenitsyn who warns that once the God of Revelation has been removed from men’s lives, it means the logical end of modern Western and American history.  In other words, totalitarian Communism and Gulag were not merely Russian experiments but rather the end of all people who remove the Triune God of Revelation from the center of life, as is increasingly the case here in America.

What happened in Russia under Marxist Communism has already killed the soul of Western Europe and is even now in the last stages of poisoning the soul of America. Thus America and the West are also facing Russia's hatred for the Triune God, orthodox Christians, and faithful Jews in a satanic phenomenon of state atheism and its politically correct Gulag.  This is the message Solzhenitsyn presented in his American addresses.  In his Harvard commencement in 1978 he castigated America for its loss of will, loss of truth, and loss of morality as well as its’ love of lies, pleasure, hedonism and materialism together with its satisfaction with legalism in human relations.

As godlessness in tandem with Darwinism advances over the West and America, destructive and irresponsible freedom is granted boundless space, and even defined as Constitutional rights.  Thus Western and American society said Solzhenitsyn, has little defense against the abyss of human decadence:

Communism has infected the whole world with the belief in the relativity of good and evil…  Among enlightened people it is considered rather awkward to use seriously such words as ‘good’ and ‘evil.’  But if we are to be deprived of the concepts of good and evil, what will be left?  Nothing but the manipulation of one another.  We will decline to the status of animals.”

Solzhenitsyn warned America to wake up and learn from those who have suffered.  Return to the Holy Creator God and America’s orthodox Christian and moral roots and stand firmly in the spiritual war of good against evil. 

Repentance: the Beginning of the Cure

In his 1974 essay “Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations,” Solzhenitsyn explains that the cure begins quite simply with,

repentance and the search for our own errors and sin.  We must stop blaming everyone else (and) always claiming that we alone are in the right.  Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord.  Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth.  For each and every individual.  And every trend of social thought.”  (Life Under the Lidless Eye, pp. 38-39, Lee Penn, SCP Journal, Vol. 37:1-37:2, 2013)

As Pannekoek affirms, Darwin's miracle-producing life and change-making evolutionary energy has destroyed the foundation of Christian theism since for the most part it has supplanted the historic Genesis account of creation, and by extension, biblical infallibility, the Triune God’s unchanging moral law, the gospel claims of Jesus Christ, sexual ethics, and imago Dei, the source of man’s personhood and innate dignity.

Darwinism has also destroyed the foundations of our Constitutional Republic, and by extension, America’s traditional culture, so as the Psalmist asks,

As evolutionary humanism, it's theological counterparts and hatred of truth cast their nets over America,  Christian conviction in the Revelation of our Heavenly Father, creational norms, sin, moral absolutes, and the Gospel of Christ are fading to black.

What happened in Russia under Marxist Communism has already killed the soul of Western Europe and is even now in the last stages of poisoning the soul of America. Thus America and the West are also facing Russia's hatred of the Triune God, orthodox Christian, and faithful Jew phenomenon of state atheism and its politically correct Gulag.  This is the message Solzhenitsyn presented in his American addresses.  In his Harvard commencement in 1978 he castigated  America for its loss of will, loss of truth, and loss of morality as well as its’ love of lies, pleasure, hedonism and materialism together with its satisfaction with legalism in human relations.

2. Gen. 1-11: The Creation Model Versus Modern Pagan and Pantheist Evolutionary Models

Isaiah 57 Revisited: America's Progressive Pagan Elites, Their Depraved Followers and Human Sacrifice

America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of the world, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Gen. 1:1) “...in His own image He made them, male and female He made them...I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..." (Gen. 1:27) "I am the Lord your God...” (Isaiah 41:13)  Our Constitutional rights, beginning with the most important one, the God-given right to life, flow from this Biblical seedbed, thus because human beings are the spiritual image bearers of the Lord, throughout Christianized Western civilization there exist strict prohibitions against murder and human sacrifice.

The pagan world however, has never shared Western sensibilities. Throughout history in many parts of the world, pagans have performed unimaginably sadistic human sacrifices as a way of pleasing or appeasing their mythological gods.

For example, in 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death.

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

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

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

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

Except in method, the Mayans were no different in this regard. Inscribed stones bear witness to the Mayan practice of human sacrifice--- adult male, female and child:

"The common method for human sacrifice seems to have been for the "ah nacom" (a functionary) to extract the heart quickly, while 4 people associated with Chac, the rain/lightning god, held the struggling victim's limbs. Human sacrifices seem to have been made, as well, with arrows, by flaying, decapitation, hurling from a precipice, and throwing the victim into a limestone sinkhole."  (Human Sacrifice and the Maya, N.S. Gill, ancienthistory.about.com)

As evil as this was, the Maya were amateurs in comparison to Aztecs when it came to human sacrifice on a massive scale:

The Aztecs of Central. Mexico, many years later, once sacrificed twenty thousand people in a single ceremony to commemorate the dedication of a new temple. Then they ate them." (Maya Human Sacrifice...Say it isn't so, ambergriscaye.com)

The kind of human sacrifice practiced by the Aztecs involved the use of large boulders against which the victims would be placed:

" The victims would be forced to lean back against the stone, causing their chests to protrude to make it easier for the pagan priests to slice open their chests, reach in, yank out a still beating heart and eat it. The hair of the priests were matted with blood, and the walls of temples themselves were soaked inside and out with human blood, as if they had been streaked and splattered with red paint. " (Planned Parenthood and the Aztecs, Bryan Fischer, OneNewsNow, Thursday, August 20, 2015)

Isaiah 57: Religious and Social Elites, Their Depraved Followers, and Human Sacrifice

In his highly acclaimed book, "Nazi Oaks," Pastor R. Mark Musser turns to Isaiah 57 where the prophet records the rejection of the Holy Creator God by Jewish religious and social leaders and their depraved followers in favor of the mythological Canaanite evolutionary nature religion. The subsequent loss of spiritual leadership results in deification of man, occultism, and sadistically evil human sacrificial rituals where children are burned to death as offerings to Ba’al, a Canaanite god (1):

They have built high places to Baal on which to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal--something I never commanded or mentioned, nor did it ever enter My mind.”  Jeremiah 19:5

These sadistic evils together with other forms of depravity led to the suicidal demise of the nation where the righteous man perishes,
 
 ".... and no man takes it to heart; and the devout men are taken away, while no one understands.  For the righteous man is taken away from evil." (Isaiah 57: 1)
 
 While children were burned to death and good, faithful people were rejected, scorned, ridiculed, persecuted, imprisoned, impoverished, terrorized, murdered and otherwise die and taken away to paradise, on earth no one replaces them.  Left behind were the depraved counter culture rebels of society--evolutionary pagan religious and social elites and their depraved, destructive followers:
 
"Against whom do you jest?  Against whom do you open wide your mouth and stick out your tongue?  Are you not children of rebellion, offspring of deceit, who inflame among yourselves among the oaks, under every luxuriant tree, who slaughter the children in ravines, under the clefts of the crags?"  (Isaiah 57: 4-5)
 
Here is seen defiant rejection of the Holy Creator God, creational norms, Truth and Moral Law resulting in unfettered evil, worship of divine evolving forces of nature, shameless sexual perversion, sadism, and child sacrifice practiced by depraved mass man and the cultivated crowd, the elites of society, and all of it "rolled up into one outdoor whore house of death." (Musser, p. 49)

Isaiah 57: 4-5 Slaughter of Babies

As evil as Jehovah-rejecting Jews, Carthaginians, Mayans, Aztecs, and other pagans were, they were rank amateurs when compared to America’s sadistically depraved Progressive pagan elites. Rather than slaughtering babies in ravines or burning them to death in Moloch ovens American babies are barbarically murdered according to precise scientific procedures calling for the suctioning out of the brains of living babies or burning babies to death from the inside out while within the womb:

“Partial birth abortion was publicly unveiled in 1992. This method is used to kill babies from 20 weeks through full term. Because the baby is considerably larger and more well developed at this time, the opening of the woman's cervix must be greatly enlarged in order to perform this abortion. The entire process requires three days…The amniotic fluid is drained and all but the baby’s head is pulled out of the birth canal. The abortionist uses a sharp pair of surgical scissors to stab the base of the living baby's skull, spreading the scissors to enlarge the hole. The scissors are removed and a suction tube is inserted into the skull opening to “evacuate” the brain. This kills the baby and collapses the head, allowing the abortionist to fully deliver the child.” (New York State Leads the Way in Advocating Murder in the Womb, Pastor Steve Rowitt, Ph.D., Creation Studies Institute)

“…Saline Injection Abortion (or salt poisoning abortion) may be used after sixteen weeks when enough fluid has accumulated in the amniotic sac surrounding the baby. A long needle is inserted through the mother's abdomen to remove and then replace some of the amniotic fluid with a solution of concentrated salt. The baby breathes in and swallows the solution and usually dies in one to two hours - though sometimes death takes many hours - from salt poisoning, dehydration, convulsions, hemorrhages of the brain and failure of other organs. The baby is literally burned inside and out by the strong salt solution.” (Ibid)

When it comes to human sacrifice on a massive scale the Aztecs occupy the peanut gallery when compared to the United States.  According to the National Right to Life, since 1973 there have been 60, 069, 971 estimated abortions in the United States.

Further Evils: Cannibalization of Body Parts

With the return of human sacrifice there comes cannibalization of body parts:

We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not going to crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, I’m going to crush above, and I’m going to see if I can get it all intact….”   (Deborah Nucatola, MD, Director of Medical Services, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, July 25, 2014)

When negotiating about fetal tissue, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services talks about a “less crunchy technique” for keeping body parts intact during a partial-birth abortion. She says the price, “has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me,” at one point explaining “I want a Lamborghini.”  (‘Don’t Want to Lowball’ Baby Parts; Another Planned Parenthood Official on Tape, Kathryn Jean Lopez, nationalreview.com, July 21, 2015)

An undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) shows that the pagan rituals of the Aztecs have returned from the bowels of Hades with a vengeance.  It reveals the gruesome reality that babies,

"... are born alive in Planned Parenthood abortuaries, and then laid on tables with their tiny little hearts still visibly beating in their chests. The abortionist then takes a pair scissors and cuts the face of the baby in two so that its brain can be extracted, a procedure that starts while the baby is still alive." (ibid, Fischer)

Leading stem cell researchers believe that the evidence uncovered by CMP indicates that in order to send fresh specimens to researchers, Planned Parenthood keeps some babies,

"... alive right up until the moment their hearts are cut out of their bodies. This is because a heart is only good for research if it can be prepped for shipping within five minutes of death." ibid

In light of this ongoing evil, if death is knocking on someone’s door unless they receive an organ transplant, then why not slaughter a child in order that its organs can be harvested since it’s permissible to harvest body parts from babies?  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)

While America's Progressive elites and their depraved followers are very vocal when it comes to saving snail darters, owls, trash fish, alligators and wolves at the expense of human flourishing they generally rationalize murder of unborn humans on the lie that the unborn are not human but rather clumps of uterine cells in process of evolution.    Accordingly, unborn humans are not human when being suctioned, snipped, torn apart, crushed, and burned alive in saline solutions.  However the unborn magically transform into humans when their lungs, hearts, heads, and other body parts are coveted by well-funded pagans for research purposes.

The Satanic Creed of Evolutionary Progressivism

Do not forget that the fundamental contrast has always been, is still, and always will be until the end: Christianity and Paganism, the idols or the living God.” Abraham Kuyper, The Stone Lectures, Princeton Seminary, 1898 (cited in Pagans in the Pews, Peter Jones, p.32)

At the outbreak of the modern era, the (Progressive gnostic pagan) system of inverse biblical exegesis was once again activated.”  Ioan Couliano, “The Tree of Gnosis”

This inverse exegesis from hell begins with evolution, which has persuaded people,

 “...to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation.”  Such inverse thinking means it is now impossible for educated Westerners to conceive of Biblical revelation because “in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future.”  (Franklin Baumer, “The Making of the New Spirituality, James Herrick, p. 150)

Throughout paganized America inverse evolutionary origin accounts and pagan and occult pantheist ideologies of monism are now the reigning views of reality.

Monism, or continuity (also oneness), is the ruling idea in all ancient and modern mythological nature religions going back to Babylon.  It is also the essence of Progressive spirituality. In the Progressive worldview reality is the idea that the universe is a quantum energy field of undifferentiated divine creative energy in motion (evolution).  From ancient times the serpent biting its tail has symbolized the energy field while the serpent is the symbol of the universe’s creative evolutionary energies (serpent power). According to this view of reality God is not outside of the universe in the third heaven but rather God (the divine serpent) is the universe. God (the divine serpent) is within the circle thus within certain highly evolved elite pagans, demonstrating that "the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” 1 John 5:19

Polytheism

Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' satanic Progressive spirituality declares that the Biblical Creator God and sin are scientifically-passé and that both elites and their depraved followers are gods or goddesses in process of evolution.

 Millions of human-deities, each with their own personal truths, moralities, and multiple and ever evolving 'genders'---this is pagan polytheism issuing in idolatry of self, pursuit of pleasure, leisure, status, and power.  Moreover, it is escape from suffering by whatever means since if sin (the Biblical answer to  man’s suffering) is a myth and the supreme evil is individual suffering then why should the man who envies God the Father not conceptually murder Him and seize His powers for his own agenda? Or 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 law-abiding Conservatives?   This is why America’s Progressive elites and their depraved followers:

“.... 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) 

This they do because they cannot sleep unless they do evil and make someone fall "since they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.” Proverbs 4: 16-17

How does such evil begin?  As Isaiah tragically details, it begins with the rejection of the Triune God, creational norms, Truth, and His Law (John 15:12).  Where there is no love for Father there is no love for brother. (1st and 2nd Commandments):

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

The end of the commandment is charity (love) from a pure and humble heart, a good conscience and unfeigned faith. (1 Thess. 1:5) He that loves his neighbor fulfills the law for his heart is not blackened by thoughts of hate and murder:

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

Idolatry and Human Sacrifice

The beginning of idolatry is pride (love of self), which together with rebelliousness, defiance, selfishness, jealousy, covetousness, greed, hatred, and envy demonstrates preference for one's self instead of the Lord, neighbor and unwanted babies. Just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, murder is its' final result, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.

2 Timothy 3:3—the Natural Man

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 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)

In this light we are able to understand that when our Lord said, "Wherever the body is, there will the vultures be gathered together" (Luke 17:37) the body collectively represents the spiritually dead 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, disintegrated souls are 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

But for the faithful, our Lord says:

“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

Gen. 1-11: The Creation Model Versus Modern Pagan and Pantheist Evolutionary Models

In June 2005 the prestigious World Summit on Evolution was held on the remote island of San Cristobal in the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador.  The location was chosen because it was the spot where Charles Darwin docked in 1835 to probe the ultimate question—the origin and nature of life.

The Galapagos summit was hailed as the Woodstock of Evolution, and attending scientists celebrated as a literal “Who’s Who of evolutionary theory.”

A key figure at the conference was the world famous philosopher of mind, Daniel Dennett.  Dennett is the favorite of all new pagan and mystical pantheist trans-humanists. They believe that computers can not only simulate human mental processes but will eventually evolve the conscious awareness known today as artificial intelligence  

Strangely, for a philosopher of mind Dennett seeks to convince the world that there really isn’t any such thing as a mind in the traditional Biblical sense. In the Biblical model, the material brain is an awesomely designed computer by which spirit, the citadel of man’s soul, interfaces with the world of matter, time, and space. Like dreaming however, thinking does not take place within the material brain but within the unseen dimension of spirit.

As a neo-pagan evolutionary materialist (pagan animist), Dennett enthusiastically embraces Darwin’s evolutionary theory because evolution—-an unseen creative energy that acts upon matter—- supposedly provides a ‘scientific’ explanation for the emergence of life from non-life bearing chemicals, thereby supposedly negating the necessity of the living, supernatural Tri-Personal God.   Hence Dennett’s delusional insistence that there is no soul/spirit (mind, will) associated with the human brain or any supernatural God or life after death.   Thus the central concern of Dennett’s career has been to explain how,

“….meaning, function and purpose can come to exist in a world that is intrinsically meaningless and functionless.” (The Spiritual Brain, Beauregard & O’Leary, p. 2)

Dennett’s pagan materialist assumptions are in keeping with Darwin’s conceptions.  In thoroughly researching Darwin’s notebooks atheist evolutionists Stephen Jay Gould and Ernst Mayer have shown that Darwin identified himself as a philosophical materialist several months before he developed the idea of natural selection, a type of predestination.

Contemporary evolutionary materialism is a revamped version of ancient Egyptian materialism and the Atomism taught by ancient Greek nature philosophers such as Epicurus.  (1) Epicurus held that all that exists are atoms (matter) bumping together in a void.  There is no God or gods; no origin for life and conscious life, thus no soul/spirit, and no life after death.  Just atoms, the void and annihilation.   This means that man is less than nothing.

In the evolutionary animist and mystical pantheist Marxist model, for example, no human being is actually redeemable since all humans are depersonalized, soulless aspects of the mystical pantheist collective unconscious.  Marxism’s scientifically engineered New Man is merely coalesced complex forms of matter-- a product of evolution and begotten by the Sovereign World State.  (2)

The New Man has lost all sense of individuality and exists drone-like in collectivized (totalized) society as a natural resource, a part of the whole, made for the whole, and relatively worthless if not coalesced within the collective.

Marxism is but one of the many modern pagan and pantheist scientistic ideologies that reduce the human being to a soulless aspect of nature. Like the other systems, Marxism begins its process of social engineering by teaching humans that they are the product of Darwinian evolution working on matter, thereby allowing them to be deconstructed and depersonalized.  In this way the sense of their individual souls, intellect, free will, and conscience eventually fade to black since all four are shown by ‘science’ to be illusions. 

Social engineering allows the New Man to imagine he is a bio-machine or hominid rather than the image bearer of the Triune Creator.  This allows the New Man to sink into passive slavery to instincts and passions.   In short, since the New Man has no real choice, whatever harm he does to others can never be his fault since ’ science’ has liberated the New Man from the burden of freedom.  In this way, the New Man can fully enjoy his earthly rewards as a slave within a deterministic system of cause and effect unless truth and reality invade his collective darkness. Far from redeeming the New Man, social engineering has but brought back the Old Man of 2 Tim. 3:3.

Neo-pagan evolutionary materialism (naturalism) began ascending to its’ current dominant philosophical and scientific position as far back as the 17th century.   The conflict between the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and the naturalistic account is an ancient and critically important conflict, one fought with asperity in the 17th century between such men as Donne and Milton on one side and Bacon and the Royal Society on the other.   In the 18th century men such as Swift, Pope and Johnson opposed the neo-pagan naturalism of Hume, Bentham and French philosophers.  By the 19th century it was being fought over the whole of Western culture with creation ministries and men such as Richard John Neuhaus, Seraphim Rose, Peter Jones,  Albert Mohler, Creation Ministries International and a host of other supernatural creationists staunchly opposing all neo-pagan naturalism (materialist and pantheist) as represented by, for example,  Darwin, Dennett, Edward O. Wilson, Steven Pinker, Tom Wolfe, Teilhard de Chardin, Michael Dowd, Rob Bell, and Tim Keller.

Why is this conflict so important?  Among crucial issues is the answer to the question, ‘what is man?’   The answers provided by naturalism are entirely opposed to the answer provided by the Genesis account:

As part of our commitment to building a just and loving society, we must build a culture that cherishes the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life,” Trump continued. “All children, born and unborn, are made in the holy image of God. Every life is sacred, and every soul is a precious gift from heaven. As the Lord says in Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart.’” (Trump Says ‘Every Soul Is A Precious Gift From Heaven,’ Cites Scripture At Prayer Breakfast, Calvin Freiburge, Life Site News, Feb. 7, 2019)

The Genesis account of creation ex nihilo reveals that man is a person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons.  Man was created directly by the Creator God of Gen. 1 identified by the Apostle John as the Son of God (John 1:1), thus the with a superhuman intelligence and original nature from which Adam, hence all of us,  fell away and to which we are called back.

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

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

In affirmation, the brilliant French economist, statesman and author, Frederic Bastiat writes of the gifts from God which includes the physical, intellectual and moral life:

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

The Creator

John 1:3 identifies our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ , the second Person of the Holy Trinity as the Creator:

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” “He was in the world, and the world was made by him” (v. 10). “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us” (v. 14).

Jesus Christ is the Creator.  Foremost of His miracles is creation out of nothing—six instantaneous acts or days of creation rather than the billions of years of evolutionary process as the wisdom of fallen man holds.

On the miraculous creation of the first man Church Father John Chrysostom writes:

“And God formed man of dust from the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul….the inbreathing communicated to the one created out of earth the power of life, and thus the nature of the soul was formed.  What does a living soul mean?  An active soul, which has the members of the body as the implements of its activities, submissive to its will.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p.215)

Gregory of Nyssa adds:

The body and the soul were formed at the same time—not one before and the other afterwards…” (ibid, p. 218

Early Church Fathers make the point that the whole of creation---angels, time, matter, fire, wind, water, herbs, trees, all life and conscious life---was brought into existence from non-existence (ex nihilo), not from anything already in existence or from the Essence or Nature of God.  Therefore creation does not have the same essence as God and is not a part of God as most ancient and modern pagans believe.

Lest we be led away into the false opinion that the soul itself is Divine, or a part of God’s essence as pantheists and Gnostic’s teach, Chrysostom writes:

“Certain senseless ones, being drawn away by their own conceptions, without thinking of anything in a God-befitting manner…dare to say that the soul has proceeded from the Essence of God. O frenzy! O folly! How many paths of perdition has the devil opened up for those who will serve him!” (ibid, Rose,  p. 216)

Neo-pagan myths like Darwin's materialist idea (1), which he received from his pagan grandfather, and Telhard de Chardin's Vedanta monist conception reject the Genesis account ex nihilo together with Original Sin and the fall and teach instead an inverted exegesis positing that man comes up from chemicals and lower creatures.  This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of relativism (subjectivism) because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else–maybe a divine superman, god-man, or super robot—-but nothing can be said about LGBTQ+ and the contemporary menu of 15 genders since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter that spontaneously generated itself from nothing.

With regard to soul/spirit, if man evolved from non-living, genderless matter or energy and lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth.  Like them he has no spirit—free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience.  He is a fleshy robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

Worse, as all pagan and pantheist conceptions are equally God-less, hence lifeless and mindless, none have an ultimate source for life, consciousness, soul, and personhood, thus all are merely different expressions of anti-human nihilism (meaninglessness) which makes man equal to or lower than the nonhuman, thereby allowing for all manner of crimes against humanity, especially the weakest, hated, envied, despised and inconvenient.  Here in paganized America tens of millions of unborn humans have been sadistically liquidated within abortuaries while  during the 20th century in excess of 160,000,000 unevolved human weeds, and useless eaters were brutally murdered in one way or another by two pagan and pantheist regimes: Marxist Communism and National Socialism.

Today, in the name of preventing climate change, ominous anti-human agendas are making astonishing inroads over and across America.

In "War On Humans," Wesley J. Smith reports that the "nature rights" movement seeks to grant flora and fauna,

"...the right to exist, persist, maintain and regenerate its vital cycles"—essentially a right to life that explicitly erases the moral distinction between humans and all other life forms. "  (tothesource, Feb. 27, 2014)

The putative rights of nature may also extend to inanimate matter:

"The Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Nature announces that the rights of nature are "inalienable . . . without distinction of any kind, such as may be made between organic and inorganic beings, origin, use to human beings, or any other state." 

Nature has already been granted "rights" by Ecuador and Bolivia, as well as in some thirty U.S. municipalities,

"...including Santa Monica, California. Ban ki-Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations has thrown his support behind the movement, and nature rights has been proposed for inclusion in an eventual UN treaty to fight climate change."
 

Though pagan naturalists prefer to keep it secret, they say in so many words that the depersonalized collective human organism will eventually evolve into some sort of cosmic Super Organism.  Underlying this idea is a quasi-Buddhist concept expressed in the idea that a universal human organism is reaching a magnificently evolved state of exaltation.

This view leads directly to religious ideas like those of Teilhard de Chardin who said that for Communism to succeed science must become spiritualized and the democrat, communist and fascist must unite.   These three currents must merge in order to promote the spiritual future of the World:

“The function of man is to build and direct the whole of the Earth…We shall end by perceiving that the great object unconsciously pursued by science is nothing else than the discovery of God.” (ibid, Rose, 591)

Chardin theorized that after millions of years of evolution a Christ consciousness was finally emerging out of matter causing the whole world and everything in it to become spiritualized and divinized.  Everything is becoming Christ, said Teilhard.

Seraphim Rose observes that Teilhard’s pantheism is a frightful heresy:

People will think they are gods while actually having this animalistic philosophy (which) is exactly what Antichrist needs in order to come to reign.” (ibid, p. 282)

In the final analysis, the conflict between supernatural creation ex nihilo and anti-human neo-pagan naturalism boils down to the answers to these questions: what or who are you and where you will spend eternity.

Pagan Progressivism, Cultural Marxism, Unconscious Satanism, Nimrod's Tower, and Spirit of Antichrist: Ties That Bind

"Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”  Genesis 3:1, KJB

Across our scientifically enlightened paganized society the idea of Satan and Satanism are uncomfortable subjects for most people, including many Christians, particularly ‘woke’ social justice evangelicals. It wasn't always this way. The apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky for example, knew that Communist revolutionaries such as Karl Marx were demonically possessed but would only become aware of it until too late.  
 
While Satanism is the knowing worship of Satan and is historically rare there is also historically widespread unconscious Satanism (1 Cor. 10:20):

“...the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.”  1 John 5:19 ESV

Unconscious Satanism undergirds ancient and modern pagan worship of creative energy symbolized by the serpent and grounded in ancient Mesopotamian literature with its evolutionary account of origins and one-dimensional pagan model of reality.

From the time of Babylon mankind has been worshipping creative energy symbolized by the serpent prominently featured within Ageless Wisdom traditions from all around the world. The legendary history of Greece, Rome, Phoenicia, Egypt, and India, for instance, are filled with stories of man’s serpentine ancestry:

When Aenas was about to worship at the tomb of Anchises, his father…a serpent appeared and glided among the altars, tasted the food Aeneas had placed there and then departed…. Aeneas did not know whether it was the genius loci or his father’s (serpent) spirit.”  (The Worship of Creative Energy as Symbolized by the Serpent, Charles Edward Herring) 

The solar deity Kneph, was a serpent in a fiery circle and Osiris and Isis were essentially identical with Kneph,

The worship of Isis, the moon-goddess, was equally entwined with ophiolatry. Her emblem was the horned viper...The Egyptians often represented Isis and Osiris together, as two serpents." (The Cult of the All-Seeing Eye, Robert Keith Spenser, p. 35)

All of the pagan gods and goddesses worshipped and served by the world's nations were symbols of creative energy symbolized by serpents that really exist. They are fallen, wicked Watchers, serpentine seraphim:

"There are "good" serpentine beings (seraphim) who guard God's throne (so Isaiah 6's seraphim), and there are fallen, wicked serpentine beings (seraphim) who rebelled against the Most High at various times, and who became the pagan gods of the other nations."   (Michael Heiser, "Serpentine/Reptilian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

The Serpent Biting Its Tail: Symbol of the Pagan Model of Reality

In addition to creative energy symbolized by the serpent, the serpent biting its tail is another important occult pagan symbol. This serpent symbolizes the one-dimensional pagan reality of monism:

The cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be.”  Carl Sagan

All Ageless Wisdom traditions feature monism, said Dr. Gary North.  Monism erases the Creator-creature distinction and is common to all occult systems,

"….from the magical sects of the East to the gnostics of the early church period, and from there unto today's preachers of cosmic evolution and irresistible karma." Monism teaches, "....we are all gods in the making.  Out of One has preceded the many, and back into One are the many traveling.  Eastern mystics, philosophical Hegelians, and followers of Teilhard de Chardin are all agreed on the reality of ultimate monism."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 60)

While pagan monism posits the cosmic or natural dimension with its two heavens, existence in the natural dimension of space and time is not the only form of existence. Timeless is the supernatural realm (third heaven) of the eternally existing, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Holy Triune God of Revelation.

There are three heavens.  The first is the immediate sky, or earth's atmosphere. (Genesis 2:19; 7:3, 23; Psalms 8:8; Deuteronomy 11:17)  All people who have had out-of-body experiences by way of near-death or drugs, astral plane travels, or through shamanism for example, can testify to the existence of their own souls as well as of the abode of demons and fallen angels, the serpentine "spirits of wickedness under the heavens" (Eph. 6:12) and their chief, "the prince of the powers of the air." (Eph. 2:2; Gen. 3:1)

According to the Apostle Paul, fallen serpentine powers thrown down from the third heaven are dispersed in a multitude throughout the first heaven. It is with this timeless abode of fallen angels and demons that shamans interact and to which astral plane travelers from the time of Nimrod to our own have been visiting.

The second heaven is the starry heavens or outer space. (Deuteronomy17:3 ; Jeremiah 8:2; Matthew 24:29). The third heaven is outside of time and space, meaning the first and second heavens, thus outside the reach of man's science.

The timeless third heaven is where God the Father with Jesus Christ seated on His right and the holy angels and spirits of righteous men in possession of eternal life dwell and to which Paul was taken. (Deuteronomy 10:14; 1 Kings 8:27; Psalms 115:16; 148:4; 2 Cor.12:2 )

Wicked Serpentine Seraphim Within Church and State

For the scientifically enlightened West and America serpent energy was repackaged during the nineteenth century as evolutionary science by a brotherhood of powerfully influential Western occultists at the highest levels of church, society and government.  Thus today unconscious Satanism abounds throughout the West and America. Its’ spirit flows through evolutionary ideologies and evolutionary 'religions’ such as Marxism, Secular Humanism, Progressivism, western Satanism, New Age Spirituality, inner circle Masonry and Progressive Christianity.

According to New Age insider and unconscious Satanist David Spangler, Lucifer is the angel of Nature's primary creative energy--evolution:

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

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

The modern animist and occult traditions of the spiritually pagan and mystically pantheist American and global occult brotherhood for example, are revamped versions of Ageless Wisdom Teachings grounded in creative energy (serpent power). Writing in affirmation, Corinne McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson, the politically influential co-authors of " of "Spiritual Politics: Changing the World from the Inside Out," reveal that concealed behind today's spiritual revolutionary politics (i.e., Cultural Marxism and Progressivism) are Ageless Wisdom teachings preserved by occultists since the Egyptian pantheon (27th-30th centuries B.C). These ancient teachings, said the authors, have been handed down over the ages to modern occultists in the time of the Renaissance and 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)

In the classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages" English theologian G.H. Pember (1837-1910) examines the explosion of Ageless Wisdom----spiritism (open communication with evil spirits), ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, Theosophy, Buddhism, reincarnation and evolution, karma, the Mysteries, astrology, mesmeric healings and evolutionary thinking sweeping across Christendom

It was during the Renaissance that many influential Christians at the highest levels of Church and society had returned to the occult Ageless Wisdom Teachings and serpent power.  Hence Pember observes that ancient occult traditions are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the emerging occult brotherhood as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given to the,

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

Wicked Seraphim and the Spirit of Antichrist

In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, "The Brothers Karamazov," (1879-1880) the Grand Inquisitor is an unconscious Satanist and type of Antichrist.  The Grand Inquisitor is an important part of the novel because the character represents Dostoevsky's penetrating insight into the fallen human psyche and one of its' most important endowments: moral freedom.   In particular, the Grand Inquisitor is the spirit of Antichrist. Like his father the devil he is the murderer of God the Father and false witness and crucifier of Jesus Christ. He is also the symbol of the principle of nihilism (negation) and rebellion in mortal men such Hegel, Max Stirner, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, the global occult brotherhood and Western and American ruling class God-haters who, though not the actual devil, are of one mind with him, thus do his work.   They are unconscious Satanists and, collectively, the Spirit of Antichrist

The Grand Inquisitor is a god-man who has usurped the throne of the Holy Triune God. He is a conscious swindler, a Big Liar who knows that God the Father exists, yet perversely chooses to rebel against and conceptually murder Him and crucify His Son despite that he knows his own life is by the grace of the personal God of life and revelation. 
 
In "Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor," Ellis Sandoz writes that when Marx found himself compelled to negate his own being (inner person, soul/spirit, self) because of his perverse desire to show that "man owes his existence (only) to man," and to establish that the "entire so-called history of the world is nothing but the creation of man," he virtually recapitulated Aquinas' argument for the existence of the Triune God:
 
"A being only considers himself independent when he stands on his own feet; and he only stands on his own feet when he owes his existence to himself.  A man who lives by the grace of another regards himself as a dependent being (and) I live completely by the grace of another if I owe him not only the maintenance of my life, but if he has, moreover, created my life---if he is the source of my life.  When it is not of my own creation, my life has necessarily a source of this kind outside of it.  The creation is therefore an idea very difficult to dislodge from popular consciousness.  The fact that nature and man exist in their own account is incomprehensible to it, because it contradicts everything tangible in practical life."(pp. 113-114)
 
Being of one mind with the devil, the Grand Inquisitor (Marx) suggests that in order to affirm that man is god, the denial of the existence of the one true God has in the past been necessary (i.e., Nimrod), thus to further his swindle, he asserts antitheism rather than atheism, which is merely a negation of God that nevertheless postulates the existence of man through this negation.  The complete negation of the Triune God requires monism, thereby making man and nature (matter, energy, time, space) of the same substance. 
 
For the conscious swindler, the prudent course is to flatly deny the existence of the Holy Triune God and enforce this dictate by way of psychological terror and if need be, by murder. Believers must be psychologically manipulated and terrorized into confusion, apathy and groveling submission, and even better, accommodate the Christian Church to the serpent-powered world system by way of harsh scorn, cruel ridicule, scoffing, slander and charges of insanity. 

After seizing control of Russia, Marx's disciples enforced the denial of the Triune God by way of terror, murder, psychoactive drugs, and enforced teaching of Darwinism.   With the exception of murder, the disciples of the occult brotherhood and our Godless ruling class utilize the same methods as Marx’s disciples:  terror, psychoactive drugs, and enforced teaching of Darwinism.

The Inquisitor also knows that if men are deprived of the Holy Triune God they will worship something else.  Thus as Marx, the Inquisitor proffers the natural (pagan) religion of scientific socialism and dialectical materialism (divine thinking matter animated by creative energy).  But when Darwin published his own theory, the Inquisitor immediately perceived its' philosophically pagan materialist implications.  The idea that humans evolved by chance and natural selection from a process of evolutionary energy working on primordial water or lifeless chemicals lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and provided the scientific framework to support the economic infrastructure on which Marx could build his godless communist utopia:
 
"...the biggest thing going for Darwinism was that it finally broke the tyranny in which Christianity had held the minds of men for so many centuries." (F. Hoyle and C. Wickramasinghe, "Evolution From Space," 1983, pp. xiii-xxii, 81 and 145)
 
Progressivism, Marxist Communism & National Socialism: Types of Nimrod's Tower
 
In his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy," Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) notes that the two recurring themes of modern utopian ideologies (new Nimrod’s Tower) are monism 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 order for god-men to build a new Tower (create a God-less world and new man):

"the order of being must be obliterated (and reinterpreted) as essentially under man's control." Taking control "requires the decapitation of being — the murder of God." (Eric Voegelin, "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," p. xv)
 
Thus the Grand Inquisitor (global occult Brotherhood and Godless ruling class) is a modern Nimrod and spirit of Antichrist, making him an ominous sign pointing to the return of pre-flood and Babylonian rebellion against the one true God, monism, Ageless Wisdom, contact with evil serpentine beings, and creative energy symbolized by the serpent.  The Grand Inquisitor is the false witness and crucifier of Jesus Christ. He is the Master of the Universe who, being of one mind with Satan, has conceptually murdered the Holy Triune God as revealed through Jesus Christ in order to take control of and reinterpret being, matter, energy, space, law, and time, making him an Antichrist:

"And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”   Daniel 7:25

America's Transformation Into a Collectivist Mystical Pantheist god-State

The announcement of the death of God was the obituary of a useless single-minded and one-dimensional norm of a civilization that has been predominantly monotheistic, not only in its religion, but also in its politics, its history, its social order, its ethics, and its psychology.  When released from the tyrannical imperialism of monotheism by the death of God, man has the opportunity of discovering new dimensions hidden in the depths of reality’s history.”  (The New Polytheism: The Rebirth of the Gods and Goddesses, ‘death of God theologian’ David LeRoy Miller, vii)

Since the ‘death of God’ and the Sexual Liberation movement of the '60s, America has been experiencing an explosion of religiously pagan movements in concert with a relentless assault on the Revealed Word of God, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, immutable truth, reality, first principles, universal moral law, and the created order of being---the two sexes (male and female) for example. These movements interface with occult Gnosticism, Hinduism, and other mystical pantheist collectivist notions: evolutionary materialism, scientism, Communism, Cultural Marxism, Socialism, social justice, New Age cults, Satanism, transcendental meditation, yoga, Wicca, goddess worship, ‘gay’ shamanism, reincarnation, Luciferian Theosophy, LGBTQ+, sustainability, Gaia worship, deep ecology, channeling, the Great Apes Project and all other animal rights agenda. All are types of pantheist collectivism which stress in one way or another that mankind is ‘one with’ nature (the evolving universe of divine psychic energy and matter) and should therefore make obeisance to it as Sovereign.

In his penetrating analysis of pagan Progressivism, M. Stanton Evans author of "The Theme is Freedom: Religion, Politics, and the American Tradition," observes that it is only against the background of neo-paganism that the bizarre ‘isms’ of Progressive politics come into focus. The common feature of all these movements---naturalism, materialism, sexism, multiculturalism, feminism, determinism, economic determinism, racism, heteronormativism, and patriarchalism for instance, is that they view irrational nature itself as ultimate and sovereign. In other words, they make a god of irrational nature—its laws, energies, and matter---which is precisely why Al Gore is synonymous with Gaia, global warming, and carbon footprints, and the Left in general zealously stresses collectivism (scientific pantheism), solidarity, oneness, inclusion, diversity, and other worldly social justice concerns.  Evans comments:

Much of it, indeed, is pantheism or other nature-worship, dressed up as secularism or science.” Darwinian evolution is the “most influential case in point (as it) explicitly replaces (or identifies) God with physical nature, and in some versions even attributes to nature, or some agency within it, ineffable designs.” (The Theme is Freedom, p. 122)

For almost one-hundred years, the religiously pagan Progressive Left has been engaged in stealthily undermining and gutting our founding documents and America’s religious, social, political, legal, and cultural infrastructures. Toward this end, they’ve managed to infiltrate alien meaning into the Word of God, seminaries and pulpits as well as marginalize and deconstruct the Declaration of Independence—the charter document. Additionally, Progressive change-agents have cleverly infiltrated new and alien meaning into our Constitution. Originally, the individual’s right to liberty was viewed as inalienable because God-given, thus fixed and unchanging.  But with the ‘death’ of the Holy Trinity, powerfully influential pagan and scientific pantheist Progressives stealthily replaced Him with a mystical god-state, redefined the Word (John 1) as divine energy variously identified as evolution, natural selection, kundalini, and christ-consciousness. Subsequently, the Constitution now ‘lives and evolves,’ a quasi-divine amoral Ruling Class has replaced ‘we the people,’ and group privileges (collectivism) are increasingly sweeping away individual rights.

Where originally, each and every human life possesses an ‘inalienable right to life’ was held as an immutable truth and a universal moral good, the politically correct religiously pagan evolutionary materialist view holds that truth and morality are irrelevant and human life without value, dignity, or purpose. Usurping the place of our God-given inalienable right to life is politically correct choice. In reality, choice is a pagan elitist eugenics mentality in disguise, hence it views procreation of undesirables---such as Conservative Christians---as bad, therefore all population control schemes such as euthanasia, abortion, the abomination called partial birth abortion, and sterilization by way of sodomy are ‘good.’

However, despite these and the pagan Left’s many other successful changes toward a satanic inversion of America’s traditional cultural, social, political, and legal order, our Second Amendment rights remain a primary concern to the totalitarian ambitions of America’s pagan Ruling Class.  Our pagan masters want our guns because a weaponless people are a helpless people.

Various pagan Marxists, Secular Humanists and their confederates predicted long ago that they and an interconnected network of Cultural Marxist and other humanist accomplices throughout academia, the entertainment world, government, the church and elsewhere, would bring about the fall of the West by way of a ‘long walk through the culture.’ (1) This diabolically conceived ‘walk’ would incrementally condition our minds, demoralize and corrupt us, and slowly invert our traditional order by disarming, dumbing-down, and putting Westerners ‘to sleep’ (enslaving them) through propaganda of confusion, disinformation, immorality, and “sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.” Unwary sleepers, it was confidently foretold, would never dream that they would one day awaken to the nightmare world of slavery unfolding all around us.

Over the course of many years those predictions have come true. Today, millions of Americans are an immoral, narcissistic, infantilized people addicted to instant gratification and vices whose addictions are fed and fueled by warped, pornographic, propaganda-spewing media and entertainment. And while vice-addicted Americans have been sleeping, our universities and schools have become transmission belts for the proselytizing of Darwinism, socialism, political correctness, open-borders, New Age pantheism, sexual confusion, non-binary transgender (androgyny), one world collectivism, and hate:  hate-whitey, hate-Conservatives, hate-America, hate truth, hate history, hate free markets, hate straight males, hate-tradition, hate-morality, and hate the Biblical God.

As truth, common sense, morality, and knowledge of our founding Christian-based worldview fades to black, the American mind shuts down in tandem, thereby allowing the ice cap of a new ‘green’ pantheist totalitarianism to relentlessly advance across our nation, snuffing out the light of Christ, liberty and all things good. Under its dark oppressive weight, America is thrust into a black abyss of godless pagan superstition, where at the urging of satan’s pagan Ruling Class tools, 2+2 becomes 5, males are females, females are males, Christmas is increasingly defined as a Festival of Light  (which means occult enlightenment), and with the Supreme Court’s 2015 Obergefell v. Wade decision, America has turned a corner of historic and ominous significance:

"The Declaration of Independence, declaring that rights and laws are endowed by the Creator, has been rendered meaningless by a fake redefining of marriage, with no reference to the Creator or to any objective standards. The charade is over. This decision indicates that what has been happening for some time is finally here for all to see: the USA is clearly a “godless nation.” Let public figures supporting this decision no longer say or sing: “God bless America.” or “Amazing Grace.” It is just as worthless as their view of marriage."  (The Body Politic is Queer, Dr. Peter Jones, truthxchange, Jun. 26, 2015)

America’s founders long ago warned Americans that only a God-fearing, informed, and virtuous people can remain a free people, for these practices lend themselves to impulse control issuing in self-determination and the cultivation of higher reason and logic, hence to individual liberty and our form of self-government. In the words of Patrick Henry---Christian patriot, governor of Virginia, revolutionary general, “The Voice of Liberty,’ and signer of the U.S. Constitution:

The great pillars of all government and of social life (are) virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.”

Ignorance, narcissism, relativism, and lack of self-control on the other hand, leads to lack of impulse-control (determinism) and the downward spiraling consequences of addiction to vice---dependency, lying, cheating, crime, chaos, anarchy, and eventually slavery.

Tragically, and of great consequence to the continuance of individual liberty, all too many Americans today are selfish, apathetic, drug-using, porn-using, infantilized, violence-prone, obscenity-spewing, sex-obsessed people, and the name Jesus Christ is for many of these---and particularly for America’s self-anointed pagan Ruling Class---- the obscenity of choice. In 1909, Reverend Francis Grimke warned of the perils of moral corruption. He said:

If the time ever comes when we shall go to pieces, it will…be…from inward corruption----from the disregard of right principles…” (Equality of Right for all Citizens, Black and White Alike)

America’s greatest enemy is ‘we the people’—-and even President Trump cannot save us from ourselves. For when we choose to fall down the slippery slope of moral corruption, ignorance, dependency, and apathy we fall right into slavery, both spiritual and physical. Our own freely chosen follies and conceits---in concert with a willingness to transgress---is the downfall, and transformation of our individual liberties, self-government, decency, and a free America into a ‘new ‘Babylon—-a collectivist mystical pantheist god-state.

Why Western God-Haters Willfully Choose Magic, Nihilism, Depravity, and Stupidity

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity, whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things…Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”  Romans 1: 29, 30, 32)

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

The living, transcendent Triune God of Revelation,  

“…. Is the leftists’ chief rival,” (Peter Hitchens, “The Rage against God”)  

Hitchens adds:

Christian belief, by subjecting all men to divine authority and by asserting in the words ‘My kingdom is not of this world,’ that the ideal society does not exist in this life, is the most coherent and potent obstacle to secular utopianism.” (p.134)

Under the guiding hands of sinister God-haters, the world as the creation ex nihilo of the sovereign Triune God of Revelation first gave way to the world as an evolving aspect of autonomous man's experience and now to an Eastern-oriented mystical pantheist illusion created by the will of the man-god:

"Man, at the same time, has stopped regarding himself as the vice-regent of God, created in His image, and (now sees) himself as a fragmented being ruled by ancient urges and lusts which control him and reduce his reason to a façade for rampant irrationalism.  Not surprisingly, T.S. Eliot saw modern man in a waste land of his own making." (The Word of Flux, Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 54) 

From the close of the Medieval Age on through to our own time, God-haters have been waging war against the God of Revelation. The reason for this unrelenting attack upon the Triune God, but especially Jesus Christ, is mankind’s sinful fallen condition. God-haters desire suppression of the knowledge of their own sin, which they hope will stifle the gnawing pain of a guilty conscience:

"The epistemological problem has roots in a false metaphysics, but both alike stem from a moral choice, man's sinful desire to be his own god.... In reality, sin is man's rebellion against the law of God and man's attempt to be his own god, to replace God's Word with man's word."   (ibid, p. 51)

Fallen, sinful man denies he is a sinner under the judgment of the Triune God.   He seeks escape from the moral law requirements of the Holy Triune God by establishing his own evolutionary cosmogony (anti-creation account), deterministic religion of nature, philosophy, and law to control the whole of reality by his fiat word exercised through the instrument of science:

"He therefore excludes the sovereignty of God and the authority of His Word, because man cannot allow such a God to exist in his world and to speak with authority to man." (ibid, p. 53) 

Though he may concede that such a God is possible—-but only as First Cause of the Big Bang and life as evolutionary theism and progressive creation maintain— the basic reality for modern naturalistic man is his autonomous existence. Thus while evolutionary theism posits a limited, man-controlled God of no authority within creation, God-haters want atheism to be true:

I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers.  It isn’t just that I don’t believe in God…It’s that I hope there is no God!  I don’t want there to be a God; I don’t want the universe to be like that.” (Thomas Nagel, Rage Against God. p. 150)

Nagel admits his own Cosmic Authority problem and states his belief that this same problem is not only widespread, but has produced bad science among his fellow unbelievers within the scientific community,

My guess is that this cosmic authority problem is not a rare condition and that it is responsible for much of the scientism and reductionism of our time.  One of the tendencies it supports is the ludicrous overuse of evolutionary biology to explain everything about life, including everything about the human mind.”  (ibid. p. 150)

In other words, scientism is the powerful magic through which the will to power of both God-haters and evolutionary theists performs sorcery and surgery. By wielding this powerful magic the Triune God and the third heaven have disappeared and man created in His spiritual image has been turned into a highly evolved ape…an evolved soulless product of evolution working on matter.   Through magic, man’s mind (spirit), the citadel of his soul, has been ‘turned into’ his material brain and his mind’s intellectual powers into the firing of synapses and interaction of chemicals.

Evolutionary reductionism is a cruel swindle perpetrated against unsuspecting Westerners by scientistic sorcerers, who having rejected Jesus Christ’s offer of salvation, want no one else to have it either.   All of it---evolutionary biology, Darwinism, scientism, man as evolved ape or hominid, and global change-- are magical illusions.

The truth is that each man is an embedded soul whose citadel is mind (will, conscience, reason) or spirit.  Scripture uses these two words, spirit and soul, interchangeably.

 Spirit is vertically open to receipt of ‘heavenly manna’ from our Father in Heaven.   However, spirit can also be open to influence and suggestion from the demonic realm, the intelligent powers behind the haters of God.

Though narrowly defined, man has ‘free will,’ thus he is able to assent to and believe in truth or reject it and assent instead to placing his faith in the cruel magic perpetrated against him by God-haters. 

In the American Dictionary of the English Language of 1828, Noah Webster defines belief and faith,

1. Belief: “…an assent of the mind (spirit) to the truth of a declaration, proposition… distinct from personal knowledge; as the belief of the gospel.”

2. Faith: “The assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another; in theology, the assent of the mind…to the truth of what God has revealed…”

Note that assent of spirit always precedes what we ‘believe’ and have ‘faith’ in as true and real. This is true of all people, from Darwin, Karl Marx, and Nietzsche, to Popes, priests, pastors, bishops, “gays,” evolutionary biologists, Presidents, Prime Ministers, university professors, Luciferians, and evolutionary theists.

The atheist scientist for example, must ‘believe’ in his findings, but more importantly, it is by ‘faith’ that he believes that his mind (unseen spirit) is capable not only of ‘knowing’ but of separating reality from fantasy.

All of this being the case, when during the Enlightenment Western apostates declared the death of Jesus Christ and elevated ‘nature’ to the supreme position they were immediately faced with irresolvable problems. Of these, three are of primary importance.

The first had to do with the ultimate source of life, and the second with man’s embedded soul/spirit, or ‘being.’  If the living Creator of life and man’s being is dead, then there is no source for life and being, making man a nonbeing, a walking dead body that nevertheless speaks, thus the question becomes, “What is man?”

Evolutionary naturalism provides no answers as it posits that life emerged from pre-existing or spontaneously generated (Big Bang) chemicals, stardust or other non-life-bearing matter, which begs the question, where did the pre-existing or spontaneously generated matter come from?  Furthermore, lifeless chemicals cannot produce life, and without life that can be ‘naturally selected’ then evolutionary process has nothing to work on.

The third unresolvable problem emerges from the first two.  If the living Triune God is dead and man is a nonbeing, then what can the soulless nonbeing know and how can he account for what he knows?

The answer: he can neither account for his own life nor how he knows anything.

Philosophically, evolutionary naturalism is a species of nihilism because since humanity has supposedly evolved from lesser to greater biological organisms, the same change process is in play in the area of truth, morals, gender and biblical infallibility. Therefore, all that can be known at present – and forever – is that there is no absolute or fixed certainty in either the area of truth, morality, gender and the Revealed Word of God.

Additionally, the elevation of lifeless matter and energy to ‘creator’ is idolatrous worship of nature while the depraved notion that man is a nonbeing completely controlled by instincts (genetic and chemical forces of nature) and environment--which is another way of saying unseen forces---is utterly stupid.  

If love of truth and compassion for other souls animated the cold, shriveled hearts of God-haters they would repent of their infernal project. But as love for brother has no place in their hard-hearts they choose instead to work around the clock to ensure that since they have chosen hell then all of us must end up there, thus their relentless intellectual assault.  Peter Hitchens comments,

The current intellectual assault on God in Europe and North America is in fact a specific attack on Christianity – the faith that stubbornly persists in the morality, laws, and government of the major Western countries.” (The Rage Against God, p. 134)

"…knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires."  2 Peter 3:3

The essence of the terroristic assault upon mankind is psychological bullying.  It takes the form of a two-pronged attack.  One prong consists of license to sin, sugar-coated lies, Big Lies, double-speak, half-truths, evasions, insidiously revised history, teaching of evolution as factual science and the seductive allure of pride in being included within the citadel of the best, brightest, and morally pure.   The other prong consists of a campaign of spiritual terror in the form of relentless browbeating, scoffing, mocking, guilt-trips, cruel ridicule, slander, backstabbing, sly innuendo, and terroristic persecution and shunning of all who prove resistant to the first prong process.

In terms of procedure, men must first be conditioned to believe without question that evolution is a scientific fact. They must blindly accept that they are evolved apes and that anyone who disbelieves this canon of depravity and stupidity is a stupid redneck bible-thumper.

Second, human apes must be conditioned to speak in terms such as ‘it seems to me,’ ‘it appears to me,’ ‘I feel’ and ‘suddenly I realized’ rather than ‘I believe’ ‘I think’ ‘my faith is in,’ and ‘it is my belief.    Why? Because the former terms are abstract enough to imply ‘something caused’ in the brain by chemical interactions while the latter specifically point to ‘assent of spirit.’   And man must never, ever be reminded that he is a soul/spirit within which assent of mind occurs. Therefore, words such as belief and faith are verboten…forbidden.

Hitchens tells us that the ultimate and only defense against infernal God-haters and their nihilism, worship of human power, moral relativism, and the notion that ends justify means is a return to fundamental orthodox Biblical doctrines and teachings such as:

“…sin…conscience…eternal life, and…divine justice under an unalterable law…” (Ibid. p. 135)

In other words, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, signaling a return to sanity…. of life, of soul/spirit and of the light of truth and righteousness.

The Peace Symbol: Evil Sign of Hatred and Death Against Christians

Signified by the peace sign, September 22 is hailed as International Peace Day. According to the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) the peace symbol was designed more than sixty years ago by an English professional artist/designer named Gerald Holtom. Today the highly successful motif appears on everything from children's clothing, to T-shirts, mugs, jewelry, purses and more.   

While the reported origin of the logo has been clearly documented in letters, interviews, and the original sketches of the sign, the peace symbol has Communist and Nazi, as well as historically pagan, occult, and anti-Christian meanings and derivations:

"The downward V has been linked to the mystic character for ”Aum,” a sacred word to the Hindu. Saying “Aum” over and over supposedly awakens the power of Brahma at the base of the spine. Germanic tribes that used it claimed the sign, or “rune,” to have eerie, mystical properties. It is said that it was used by sorcerers in pagan ceremonies. The Saracens in A.D. 711 used this symbol to alternately represent a broken cross, a raven's claw, or a witch's foot, all presumably satanic symbols. Under the reign of Roman Emperor Nero, infamous for his brutal persecution of Christians and Jews, this symbol was prominently used to represent a broken cross or broken Jew. Nero crucified the Apostle Peter upside down, and the horrific event resembled the downward-pointing fork. It was thereafter called the Neronic cross. With the Third Reich steeped in the occult, Hitler's 3rd Panzer Division used this same symbol from 1941 to 1945. The symbol in Germany is called a todesrune or death rune. It often appeared on death notices. It is also found on some of the tombstones of the notorious SS soldiers. For Bertrand Russell, a supporter of communism, the symbol meant not only communism but also peace without God. Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, used the downward-pointing fork as the background for his altar. The Book of Signs, written by Rudolph Koch, indicates that the downward-pointing fork means “the death of man,” and, with the circle around it meaning “total,” the entire symbol means “the total death of all people.”  (What is the Origin of the Peace Sign?  got questions)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who pastored, counseled and delivered more than 20,000 people suffering from occult bondage, said that at the time of the first-century persecution of Christians, the peace symbol was called the Neronic cross.   It was on such a cross that the apostle Peter was crucified upside-down.  Koch comments:
 
"The symbol of peace thus signifies an inverted cross and is a symbol of hatred against Christians." (Occult ABC, p. 242)
 
In the eighth century, the Saracens fought in Spain against the Catholic church.  Their warriors had the symbol of death (the Neronic cross) painted on their shields:
 
"The same symbol of hatred against Christians was used by the Saracens when they fought against the Crusaders in A.D. 1099."
 
By the Middle Ages, the Neronic cross took on more sinister meaning:
 
"...the Neronic cross---known in many places as the pentagram---served as the symbol of the black mass, satanic cults and blasphemy."
 
During the 20th century the Neronic cross became the symbol for the "peace" movement. It was the arch-communist Bertrand Russell who adapted the Neronic cross as the now famous peace symbol because he himself was a determined enemy of Jesus Christ and Christianity.  According to Koch, the infamous ‘peace symbol’ has been worn by various arch-enemies of Christianity from leaders of the communist student movement in the USA to Russian trained Arab guerillas and the black pope Anton La Vey.

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

Peace, peace,’ they say, “when there is no peace” in their hearts. Jeremiah 6:14

From the first century crucifixion of Peter and other Christians, to the murder of more than 30,000,000 Christians by Marxist Communists and the torture, beheading, and crucifixion of thousands more by Isis, on through to our own time, the popular peace symbol has signified hatred and death against Christians.   In this light, no Christian should ever wear this evil symbol.

Godless America's idolatrous, depraved, brazenly hypocritical, scapegoating society

In the wake of the 'murder' of Jesus Christ, second Person of the Holy Trinity, an anarchy of depravity has overtaken our Godless, paganized society. Posing as legal, political, special rights, superior expert opinion, and hurt feelings, self-righteous hypocritical moralists furiously charge President Trump and mainly white socially conservative Christians and like-minded Americans with spurious and guilt-inducing accusations of homophobia, racism, sexism, xenophobia, intolerance, hate, and mental illness. As this unrelenting reign of terror gains a more complete hold over our society what follows in its wake is a mobocracy of absurdity, nihilism, paranoia, scapegoating, brutality, attempts at murder, chaos and tyranny.

Godless America’s Idolatrous, Depraved, Brazenly Hypocritical, Scapegoating Society

"God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. Yet his shadow still looms. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives; who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves?"   Friedrich Nietzsche

In the wake of the 'murder' of Jesus Christ, second Person of the Holy Trinity, an anarchy of depravity has overtaken our Godless, paganized society. Posing as legal, political, special rights, superior expert opinion, and hurt feelings, self-righteous hypocritical moralists furiously charge President Trump and mainly white socially conservative Christians and like-minded Americans with spurious and guilt-inducing accusations of homophobia, racism, sexism, xenophobia, intolerance, hate, and mental illness.  As this unrelenting reign of terror gains a more complete hold over our society what follows in its wake is a mobocracy of absurdity, nihilism, paranoia, scapegoating, brutality, attempts at murder, chaos and tyranny.

Exemplifying some of this madness is a Huffington Post article, "Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People." This twisted anthem of shameless self-pity was written by a weepy-eyed young black women, an oppressed and ‘racialized’ fourth year journalism student at Ryerson University. The self-adoring egoist who penned this drivel is so blinded by her self-gratifying self-pity and presumption that in her demand for safe-spaces she inadvertently confesses that she is paranoid, a delusion experienced by many narcissists. 

Narcissists are self-centered, thus in their intense examination of ‘self,’ can and do imagine that other people must be as obsessed by thoughts of the pompous ‘self’ as the egoist is with him or herself.  This is why the self-centered person can easily imagine that he or she is the target of persecution and hatred by others, in this case, by millions of evil white racists whose obsessive thoughts and sole aim in life is to cause the self-pitying author to suffer.  According to the paranoid narcissist:

"Racialized people experience systemic discrimination on a daily basis, on many levels, and in ways that white people may never encounter. The whole point of these safe spaces is to remove that power dynamic. That's partly what makes them spaces for healing. The presence of any kind of privilege puts unnecessary pressure on the people of colour to defend any anger or frustrations they have, to fear the outcome of sharing their stories..." (Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People, 03/18/2015 )

The iniquity lurking beneath the paranoid suggestion that ‘racialized people’ need ‘safe spaces’ because of so-called ‘systemic discrimination’ by evil white racists is scapegoating.

A scapegoat is a person or group of people made to take the blame for everything that goes wrong. In practice, it  occurs when the guilty project their own sins upon another person or group of people:

"And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat." Leviticus 16:8

After all of the sins of the people were symbolically transferred onto the scapegoat it was further burdened with all marks of reproach, imprecations, and hate. After this the people prayed that all those evils, which were due to themselves, might fall upon the goat rather than on the sinners themselves even though scapegoating cannot clean a depraved conscience.

A depraved conscience denotes a rebellious, pride-inflated mind given over by God to a debased, empty mind (Rom. 1:28) devoid of all true knowledge and judgment; incapable of approving what is truly good:

This accounts for the justness of the divine procedure in leaving them to commit such scandalous iniquities; that since they had some knowledge of God by the light of nature, and yet did not care to retain God in their knowledge; or to own and acknowledge him as God, to worship and glorify him as such; but took every method to erase this knowledge out of their minds, and keep it from others.”   Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible

Pride blinds the miscreant’s vision of the evil thing he or she has become while scapegoating allows for the crucifixion of the scapegoat on the reprobate’s own altar of self-adoration, presumption, and cruelty.

The Middle East is a scapegoating society where rape victims can be stoned to death for ‘causing’ the rapist to rape them.  Now Godless America is rapidly transitioning into a cruel scapegoating society.  This is because great numbers of ‘sinless’ Americans---Leftists, Transhumanists, pagans, Progressive ‘Christians,’ Cultural Marxist social justice warriors and similar self-righteous morally pure hypocrites--- reject their own sinfulness in favor of self-creation, autonomy, 'moral purity,' sacred opinions, and omniscient gut feelings. Thus they defiantly refuse to accept personal responsibility for their own evils while insolently and hypocritically scapegoating other people even as they ‘give thanks’ to their idols for making them perfect:

The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.”  Luke 18:11

Inflated pride, a depraved conscience, and self-righteous hypocrisy are why so-called  social justice warriors scapegoat millions of white people.  It is also why men and women of Sodom scapegoat and crucify ‘hateful homophobic’ Christian men and women while pedophiles and pederasts scapegoat and crucify parents for trying to protect their children from sexual violation.  It is also why liars scapegoat the truthful; thieves, rioters and murderers scapegoat society, and so-called ‘faithful’ ‘Christian’ social justice warriors and critical race theorists scapegoat orthodox white Christians.

"He who sacrifices to any god, other than to the LORD alone, shall be utterly destroyed.”  Exodus 22:20

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of  idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor). The will of the idolater is not in submission to God but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride and a will turned toward wickedness (self) leads to contempt for and outright hatred of the Holy Triune God, neighbor, Truth, moral law, goodness, norms, authority, standards, rules, and institutions in favor of lust for power, greed, perverse sexuality, and dehumanization of other people.

 In the Godless Soviet Union, idolatry, depravity, relativism, and Darwin’s pseudo-scientific evolutionary theory unleashed a murderous blood-thirsty beast that consumed the lives of more than one hundred million men, women, and children:

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

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

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

"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)

When a society turns away from the Holy Creator God to deified self, it is an idolatrous society heading for destruction:

“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

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

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

When a majority of a society’s citizens are no longer guilty of their own evils, scapegoats are necessary. Human scapegoats will be burdened with the evils of the guilty and cruelly burned on altars of the depraved. Scripture calls this idolatry. and since idolatry leads to the conceptual murder of the Word Who created the heavens and earth (Gen. 1:1; John 1:1, 14) and to the rejection of His work on the cross, this means that by their own choice they assign themselves to hell by judging themselves unfit for Paradise:

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death".  Revelation 21:8

 

Godless America's Idolatrous, Brazenly Hypocritical, Scapegoating Society

"God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. Yet his shadow still looms. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives; who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves?"   Friedrich Nietzsche

In the wake of the conceptualized 'murder' of Jesus Christ, second Person of the Holy Trinity, an anarchy of narcissism, selfishness, defiance, double-thinking, hatred, contempt and envy has overtaken our godless, paganized society. Posing as legal, political, superior personal opinion,  special rights, and hurt feelings, smug self-righteous hypocrital moralists furiously charge President Trump and mainly white socially conservative Christians and like-minded Americans with spurious and guilt-inducing accusations of homophobia, racism, sexism, xenophobia, intolerance and hate.  As this unrelenting reign of terror gains a more complete leverage over our society what follows in its wake is a mobocracy of absurdity, paranoia, scapegoating, brutality, murder, chaos and tyranny.

Exemplifying much of this madness is a Huffington Post article, "Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People." This twisted anthem of shameless self-pity was written by a self-absorbed young black women, an "oppressed" and "racialized" fourth year journalism student at Ryerson University. The self-important egoist who penned this drivel is so blinded by her self-gratifying  presumption that in her demand for safe-spaces she inadvertently confesses to paranoia, a delusion experienced by many narcissists. 

Narcissists are self-absorbed, thus can and do imagine that other people are as obsessed by thoughts of the pompous egoist as the egoist is with him or herself,.  This is why the narcissist easily imagines that he or she is the target of persecution and hatred by others, in this case, by millions of evil white racists whose obsessive thoughts and sole aim in life is to cause the 'racialized' author to suffer.  According to the paranoid narcissist:

After this the people prayed that all those evils which were due to themselves might fall upon the goat rather than on the sinners themselves even though scapegoating cannot clean a depraved conscience.

A depraved conscience is one that is corrupted by pride and other types of wickedness.  Pride hinders and blinds the narcissists' vision of herself as she really is while scapegoating allows the narcissist to crucify 'other' on an altar of self-adoration and presumption .

Thus Truth and the unbearable revelation of her own sin,

"...causes what it was trying to avoid seeing to be set before its eyes. What it had preferred to be hidden behind its back is now brought round and it is forced to confront it face to face." Formerly it had "looked at itself and been very pleased with itself and become a lover of its power. It had lost the ability to look honestly at its own actions and thus justified all its evil deeds. Through its selfishness and self-indulgence it became insolent (and) proud..." (St. Augustine, Sermon 142,3)

Just as the Middle East is a scapegoating society where a victim of rape can be stoned to death by her rapist, America is similarly transitioning into a scapegoating society.  This is because a majority of "sinless" Americans---social justice warriors and similar self-righteous 'morally pure' hypocrites within and without the Christian Church--- reject their own sinfulness in favor of autonomy, 'moral purity,' and depraved "sacred opinions" "feelings" and "choices." Thus they refuse to accept personal responsibility for their own sins while freely and hypocritically scapegoating other people who they unjustly accuse of an ever evolving cornucopia of sins. 

This is why so-called "racialized" people of color scapegoat millions of white people.  It is also why men and women of Sodom scapegoat and terrorize "hateful homophobic" Christian men and women and pedophiles and pederasts scapegoat parents trying to protect their own children from sexual violation..  It is also why liars scapegoat the truthful, thieves, rioters and murderers scapegoat society and unfaithful Christian compromisers scapegoat faithful Christians.

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of  idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor). The will of the idolater is not in submission to God but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights.

When a society turns away from the Holy Creator God to deified self, it is an idolatrous society heading for destruction:

"Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil."  1 John 3:8

"You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks."  Matthew 12:34

At the root of the rejection of the Holy Triune God is the rebellious assertion that man has not been created by Him, that he is not dependent upon Him for his own life, and not created in His spiritual image.  Instead, the idolator is the creator of God, and the master of time, being, and the world who through his own powers will save himself.

Lest we mistakenly perceive idolaters as nice, misunderstood people, in "Journey to the Celestial City," Wayne Martindale sets straight this error with his unvarnished depiction of hell-bound idolaters as haters of good people.
