And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.” Exodus 31:18
Moses is he who was in the church in the wilderness with the angel, said Stephen,
“… which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us.” (Acts 7:38)
The “angel” who spoke with Moses at Sinai, delivering unto him the “living oracles” (Scriptures) was the Word begotten of God before all creation (John 1:1-5), the Lord Jesus Christ Himself in a pre-incarnate theophany.
Thus the “oracles” given unto Moses are living words, precisely because they do come from the Lord Jesus Christ, the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6):
“…the way, the truth, and the life. Without the way there is no going; without the truth there is no knowing; without the life there is no living. I am the way which thou shouldst pursue; the truth which thou shouldst believe; the life which thou shouldst hope for.” (Thomas a Kempis, “Imitation of Christ,” iii., 56; Vincent’s Word Studies)
All Scripture then “proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4), is “given by inspiration of God” (2 Tim. 3:16), is “for ever . . . settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89), and “able to make thee wise unto salvation.” (2 Timothy 3:15).
Every living word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4) includes the book of Genesis. Genesis is the book of beginnings divinely revealed to Moses for our edification and salvation. But for the most part, contemporary Christians over and across the entire denominational spectrum no longer know that Genesis “proceedeth out of the mouth of God” because they have lost contact with the early Church Fathers, the living link between the ancient texts containing God’s revelation and today's Church.
The Church Fathers regarded Genesis, especially the first three chapters, as Divinely inspired text that tells of actual, historical events and people.
St. Cyril of Alexandria wrote that Genesis is Divinely inspired and cannot be apprehended rightly without respect for its’ historical meaning:
“Those who reject the historical meaning in the God-inspired Scriptures as something obsolete are avoiding the ability to apprehend rightly, according to the proper manner, the things written in them…whenever some historical events are presented to us by the Holy Scriptures (a) useful search into the historical meaning is appropriate, in order that the God-inspired Scripture be revealed as salvific and beneficial to us in every way.” (St. Cyril, “Commentary on the Prophet Isaiah 1,4, PG 70, 192AB)
Today there is great suffering, confusion, and death in the Church because the Divinely inspired Genesis account of creation ex nihilo is either completely rejected or reduced to allegory, fanciful poetic language or myth by great numbers of 'enlightened' Christian theologians, all of them plainly modernists animated by a spirit strangely similar to the one they have reduced to a symbol of evil.
In keeping with His Gospel, our Lord not only announced it but He foretold the trials and tribulations that would encompass His followers. Of these the greatest would be the challenge in our own age of modernism with its' scientifically-enlightened priests, false prophets, false messiahs, false apostles, false scientists, ideological systematizers and other workers of deceit who are the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from its inception during the Renaissance, has by its' nature been a rebellion against supernatural Christian theism. (Matthew 7:15-23)
Dietrich von Hildebrand, Wolfgang Smith, Dr. Gary North, Thomas Molnar, and Dr. J. P. Hubert among other Christian thinkers place much blame at the feet of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit Priest who attempted to institute a “New Religion” by combining Darwinian evolution with his mystical pantheist interpretation of Christian theism.
Teilhard provided an outward gloss of legitimacy to the entire concept of evolution by theorizing the existence of “point Omega” which ultimately he identified with Jesus Christ, thereby making it intellectually possible for Christian Churchmen to accept the theories of Darwinian evolution and still retain their faith.
Under Pius XII, Teilhard was silenced, exiled, and forbidden to publish or lecture but never forced to repudiate his writings as heretical:
"Clearly his writings establish that at the very least Teilhard was a notorious material heretic—arguably the most infamous of the 20th century. Given that he essentially instituted a New Religion, he was an apostate from the faith as well." (Teilhard de Chardin: Trojan Horse of Vatican II, Heretic Extraordinaire, Dr. J.P. Hubert, moralphilosophy.com, 1/18/2008)
After reading Teilhard's work, Dietrich von Hildebrand described him as a Trojan horse and a false prophet,
" I fully realized the catastrophic implications of his philosophical ideas and the absolute incompatibility of his theology fiction (as Etienne Gilson calls it) with Christian revelation and the doctrine of the Church." (Teilhard de Chardin: A False Prophet, from Trojan Horse in the City of God,1967, absoluteprimacyofchrist.org)
In "The Pagan Temptation," Christian philosopher Thomas Molnar observes that Teilhard reinvented God as a Supreme Programmer, a God that created matter,
"...and so programmed it that it gradually spiritualizes itself and mankind to the point of becoming a 'supermankind' and encounters Christ, who meanwhile has become 'superChrist." (P. 176)
One theme stands out in Teilhard's "New Religion," said Dr. Gary North, and that is monism. 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 proceeded 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)
Monism not only erases the Creator-creature distinction but also denies any eternal separation of saved and lost. It also denies any ultimate distinction between man and Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ and Lucifer, heaven and hell, truth and lie, good and evil, past and present, male and female, structure and change.
In this light, Dr. Hubert argues that it would not seem illegitimate to wonder whether based upon Teilhard’s own admission, his views were satanically inspired:
"The man was walking in the desert, followed by his companion, when the Thing swooped down on him. Then, suddenly, a breath of scorching air passed across his forehead, broke through the barrier of his closed eyelids,
and penetrated his soul. The man felt he was ceasing to be himself; an irresistible rapture took possession of him as though all the sap of all living things, flowing at one and the same moment into the too narrow confines of his heart, was mightily refashioning the enfeebled fibres of his being. And at the same time the anguish of some superhuman peril oppressed him, a confused feeling that the force which had swept down upon him was equivocal, turbid, the combined essence of all evil and all goodness. You called me: here I am grown weary of abstractions, of attenuations, of the wordiness of social life, you wanted to pit yourself against Reality entire and untamed. I was waiting for you in order to be made holy. And now I am established on you for life, or for death…He who has once seen me can never forget me: he must either damn himself with me or save me with himself. O you who are divine and mighty, what is your name? Speak." (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, The Heart of Matter,pp. 61 & 68, describing a personal “mystical experience” in 1918, through which he had recently passed. The “Thing” which Teilhard placed in capital letters bears a striking resemblance to something of demonic origin yet he calls it divine and mighty!)
In "The Spiritist Fallacy," the traditionalist French metaphysician Rene Guenon (1886-1951) critiques the modern world and its shifting sands of intellectual fashion. Guenon writes that ever since evolution made its appearance, modernists have been positing ideas that notably disfigure the true God. In this sense, every conception that disfigures God should in some measure be regarded as satanic, and conceptions of a limited God and a God who evolves, as posited by Hegel, Teilhard and other enlightened priests, should be placed in the front rank. Since all modernist conceptions of an immanentist God subject Him to 'becoming' (evolving) they are satanic. (p. 256)
Today, the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, mainline Protestant and much of the Evangelical church is increasingly accommodating itself to evolution, which necessitates the reduction of the Divinely inspired Genesis account to poetic language or myth thereby making a liar of Lord Jesus Christ Himself in a pre-incarnate theophany (John 1:1-5) as well as compromising the whole Bible, posing a distinct danger to salvation, and disfiguring and subjecting God to "becoming."
In this light it becomes clear that evolution is indeed an infernal doctrine of the devil.
