For more than eighty years the America of the founding generation has been incrementally disappearing beneath a godless evolutionary neo-Gnostic pagan ideology that seeks the disintegration of Western man’s inner person (Imago Dei). It also seeks the blending of male and female, good and evil. In the foreword to the book ‘On Global Wizardry,’ John Frame describes it as an historical and worldwide movement of enormous, cultural power that for centuries has sought to dominate our world. (p. 10)
Darwin’s idea is taken by the movements pagan elitists as final proof that the universe is governed, not by the divine will of Jehovah 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…” (James Herrick, p. 150)
This ‘new’ pagan ideology holds that laws come from the opinions, desires, needs, hates, prejudices and other feelings of naturally selected elitists who control the reins of the mystical god-state. Moreover, it posits that rights are really special privileges granted by the god-state and that human beings are a resource similar to other naturally occurring resources, therefore exist only to serve the god-state, which as the owner and manager of all resources should be as powerful as possible.
'New' Gnostic paganism is the antithesis of America’s founding worldview which it intends to completely destroy. America, the freest, most enlightened civilization in the history of mankind, was founded on a Biblically grounded worldview beginning with, "I am the Lord your God...I am the Truth..." and "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Genesis 1:27, KJB and “I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..."
For fifteen hundred years, Christendom and then later Protestant America, had followed St. Augustine (AD 354-430) in affirming that as all men and women are the spiritual image-bearers of the One God in three Persons then it logically follows that each man is a person --a trinity of being — of soul, spirit, and body.
America was founded as a Constitutional Republic for the spiritual image-bearers of the Lord, not as a democracy populated by evolved hominids or bio machines as the pagan ideology contends.
America’s Constitutional Republic by definition has two principle elements.
First, it is controlled by Law which transcends mankind, hence neither man nor government control Law.
Second, it recognizes the private, sovereign nature of each man, which means that the transcendent Creator Who gave us Law, gave us life and liberty at the same time. Life and liberty are inseparable. All men and women, regardless of creed, color, and sex are human beings made in the spiritual image of the transcendent Creator, hence each person is endowed with an individual immortal soul and a mind endowed with reason, conscience, will, imagination, and memory. This means that all men and women, while not physical or mental equals or equal in gifts and talents, are however, spiritual equals in the eyes of their Creator, and since by their nature men and women are both free and individual thinkers and choosers, they are therefore endowed with the capacity to be self-governing when they mature both morally and intellectually.
The Constitution therefore, recognizes man's sovereignty, the divine nature of man's creation and man's divine right to life, liberty, and the means of acquiring and possessing property. Hence our Republic recognizes Law is unchangeable because the eternally unchanging Creator is the Lawgiver
Today however, the Gnostic-pagan ideology has displaced the Holy Triune God, our founding Biblical worldview, and by extension, has rendered our founding documents meaningless.
Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' it declares that the Biblical God is scientifically-passé and that now every man is god in the making, thus his own morals-and gender maker. This delusional way of thinking is grounded in an upside-down, anti-creation evolutionary account positing continuous change over billions of years of evolutionary ascent eventuating in life magically arising from chemicals, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.
This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter, and still later, lizards, and later still, some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are humans going to become something else--maybe divine supermen or super robots---but nothing can be said about homosexuality, transgender, and lesbianism since all life forms arose from a genderless blob of matter generated by a Big Bang.
With the triumph of evolutionary science and the satanically-energized will of Gnostic pagans over the Revealed Word of God, New York Times columnist Frank Bruni brazenly demands that church leaders be forced to take "homosexuality off the sin list." (Christians 'Must Be Made' to Bow, Rod Dreher, The American Conservative, Apr. 4, 2015)
At the imperious demand of arrogant, sin hardened idolators, the body of Christ (Eph. 2: 19-22) must be made to reject the Revelation of God, His created order, the two created sexes, the Fall, immutable Truth, and Moral Law, all of which the Apostles of Christ, the Fathers of the Church, and virtually every faithful Christian has affirmed as true.
The declaration of war against the body of Christ is about far more than just love, fairness, equality, and marriage rights. It is really about the disintegration of man’s inner person, his soul, the source of his dignity as the spiritual image bearer of the Holy Triune God. This insidious process was begun during the Enlightenment when Deists and fellow free-thinkers elevated ‘reason,’ (the mind of man), science, evolution, and mechanistic laws of nature above the One God in three Persons, thereby effectively taking the Holy Trinity away, and depersonalizing and reducing man to an emergent product of the evolving universe of matter and energy. Lester Crocker explains their agenda:
"There existed in the eighteenth century a widespread desire to equate the moral with the physical world..." What was desired above all was "total integration of man in nature, with refusal of any transcendence, even though it was admitted that (being God's image-bearer) gave him certain special abilities and ways of thinking. The important thing, as La Mettrie, d'Holbach and others made clear, is that he is submitted to the same laws; everything is response to need — mechanically... like a tree or a machine. Man merely carries out natural forces — without any freedom whatsoever — in all he does, whether he loves or hates, helps or hurts, gives life or takes it." (Monsters from the Id, E. Michael Jones, pp. 5, 7)
From the 18th century till our own, God-hating Gnostic pagans have been working toward the goal of scientifically deconstructing the souls of Westerners. Thus today, as cognitive scientist Daniel Dennett claims, there is no you. Soul, spirit and will are illusions caused by chemical interactions in the brain. Naturalist Tom Wolfe agrees:
"Sorry, but your soul just died." (The Spiritual Brain: A Neuroscientist's Case for the Existence of the Soul, Beauregard and O'Leary, p. 4)
Mankind has traveled this highway to hell before. Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if all that exists is matter and energy then the human self (soul/spirit) cannot exist either. In his book, "The Lotus and the Cross: Jesus Talks with Buddha," Ravi Zacharias explains that Buddha took God away and his espousal of an absence of self was the most unique and fearsome claim he made. (pp. 59, 67)
Vishal Mangalwadi, the internationally respected Indian philosopher and Christian scholar agrees. In his bestseller, The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Mangalwadi notes that Buddha deconstructed the Hindu idea of the soul so that reality for Hindus became non-self since one's sense of self is an illusion. In other words, you don't exist. The Buddha taught that liberation is in the realization of the unreality of your existence. (p. 6)
What does all of this insanity mean? Speaking through His prophet Jeremiah, the Lord said: "my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water." Jeremiah 2: 13
In other words, by forsaking our Creator, the fountain of life, in favor of non-life-bearing matter and energy, men destroy themselves. In effect they make themselves into walking dead bodies whose ‘new’ reality is non-self, meaning that by the logic of their choice there is no one home.
In short, if all that exists is matter and energy then it logically follows that there is no source for life, mind, conscience and will, the two sexes, human dignity and worth, or for that matter the much bragged about "reason of scientifically enlightened progressives." Without the Holy Trinity, meaning drains into meaninglessness and man is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before the stupidity and depravity of Enlightenment Deists and fellow travelers paved the way for the West and then America to plunge into the void where man is no longer a person. Nor is he or she either male or female but rather a soulless, sexless aggregate of matter or psychic energy in motion while the powers and abilities of his mind are nothing more than energies and chemicals acting on grey matter. In short, within the closed-system of "new" paganism, man is nothing but an evolved hominid or bio-machine, a conscious product of energy acting on matter over millions of years, a process called evolution.
The disintegration of man’s dignity as a creature of the Holy God of creation is not the result of science, as Western evolution worshippers falsely claim, but rather the product of a depraved mind, evil conscience, and will turned toward evil that justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of sovereign freedom. It is hostility toward and outright hatred of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit and His image-bearers disguised behind magic science and linguistic sophistry.
Androgyny: the Pagan Ideal
Following hard on the heels of the disintegration of man's inner person is the rapid loss of male and female distinctions, which quickly drain away into androgyny. This in its' turn necessitates the radical recasting of marriage, family, Scripture, and orthodox Christianity and the use of toddlers, older children and even babies for the sexual satisfaction of depraved pan-sexual and omni-gendered bio-machines. This hideous evil will not only be tolerated but declared a sign of enlightened progress because with the Holy Triune God dead in their hearts, then so too is the entire structure of Biblically grounded presuppositions, norms, standards, principles, moral law, sexual ethics, social institutions and society built thereon. In the resulting void, everything—no matter how evil– is now possible (Psalm 36: 1-4).
In an article entitled, "Hundred Years of Pedophilia," Olavo de Carvalho (born 29 April 1947), a Brazilian essayist and historian warns of evils just over our horizon:
"In Greece and in the Roman Empire, the use of minors for the sexual satisfaction of adults was a tolerated and even prized costume. (sic) In China, castrating young boys to sell them to rich pederasts was legitimate commerce during millennia. In the Islamic world, the rigid morals that ordain the relationships between men and women was not rarely compensated by the tolerance with homosexual pedophilia. In some countries this lasted at least until the beginning of the 20th century, making Algeria, for example, a garden of delights for depraved travelers (read the memoirs of André Gide, "Si le grain ne meurt"). ....In all the places where the practice of pedophilia receded, it was the influence of Christianism — practically alone — that freed the children from this awful rule. .....But this had a price. It is as if an undercurrent of hate and resentment had gone through two millennia of history, waiting for the moment of revenge. This moment has arrived." (olavodecarvalho.org)
In conclusion, from pre-flood times to our own, just as idolatrous men have been rebelling against God there has also always been homosexuality, lesbianism, pederasty, and zoophilia, and both evils have always been classified as sins before God.
In the post-flood world, the Canaanites practiced homosexual rituals in the worship of their gods and goddesses while Sodom and Gomorrah were synonymous with sodomy and other depravities that led to their destruction:
"Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah---from the Lord out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities---and also the vegetation in the land." Gen. 19: 24-25
And if the whole world committed these crimes against nature,
"…they would all stand guilty of the same crime against the Law of God, which did not design men so that they should use each other this way." (Confessions of St. Augustine, p. 49)
Despite the hideous depravity of Sodom and Gomorrah the practice of homosexual marriage was unknown there. Not since the pre-flood time of Noah has there been a nation that sanctioned homosexual marriage, that is, not until the United States of America, which under the leadership of ‘rainbow’ Obama, has been trying to force homosexuality on the rest of the world.
Thus today, godless paganized America stands guilty before the Lord of committing the crime that equates to the last step in the downward spiral that caused God’s judgment to fall upon the pre-flood world. Preceding the last step however, was the original pre-flood idolatry wherein, according to early Church Father Tertullian, people believed that after death they would magically change (evolve) into gods (Tertullian Treatise on the soul 57). Today the original idolatry has been recast and made palatable to modern Westerners by being dressed up as reincarnation, evolution, and science. With respect to the last step, according to ancient rabbis,
“The generation of the Flood was not wiped out until they wrote marriage documents for the union of a man to a male or to an animal.” Genesis Rabbah 26:4-5; Leviticus Rabbah 23:9
“And what did they do? A man…married…a man, and a woman a woman, a man married a woman and her daughter, and a woman was married to two (men). Therefore it is said, “And you shall not walk in their statutes.” Sifra Acharei Mot, Parashah 9:8 (Commentary on Leviticus 18:3)
By the logic of their choice, idolatrous Gnostics have destroyed themselves, and in the end, their choice inevitably lands them in Hell.
