The Queer Eye star, Jonathan Van Ness owned the red carpet at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles on Saturday. The bearded Van Ness wore a strapless black minidress,
“adorned with an elaborate mint green satin bow on the back, which trailed behind him as he sashayed down the red carpet with the rest of the Fab Five — Tan France, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, and Antoni Porowski.” (Jonathan Van Ness Won the Emmy Awards Red Carpet in a Stapless Black Minidress With an Elaborate Mint Green Bow, Rachel Hosie, Insider, Sept. 16, 2019)
It is paradoxical that Progressivism’s highly-evolved and much bragged about ‘enlightened’ secular atheist Western civilization is reaching back to the pagan and pantheist pansexual spirituality of the ancient world. As the West and America embrace the spirituality of the Mysteries our civilization also assumes its depraved view of humanity, occultism, elevation of Baphomet, and unrestrained pansexuality, all within a 'new’ and supposedly ‘enlightened’ and ‘scientific’ evolutionary worldview in which the two-in-one, or transgender (Divine Androgyne) is the ideal sexual norm.
Who or what is the Divine Androgyne? In Aleister Crowley’s explanation of the etymology of the name Baphomet, taken from one of his most important works, Magick, Liber ABA, Book 4, Crowley describes Baphomet (Satan) as the divine androgyne:
“SATAN, is not the enemy of Man, but He who made Gods of our race, knowing Good and Evil; He bade ‘Know Thyself!’ and taught Initiation. He is ‘The Devil’ of the Book of Thoth, and His emblem is Baphomet, the Androgyne who is the hieroglyph of arcane perfection” (Who is Baphomet? Vigilant Citizen)
“Baphomet represents the Powers of Darkness combined with the generative fertility of the goat.” (The Satanic Bible, Anton Lavey)
From ancient times the emasculated androgynous-homosexual priest has been upheld as the sexual ideal. Mircea Eliade, an expert in comparative religions argues that,
“androgyny as a religious archetype appears almost everywhere and in every age in the world’s religions.” (The God of Sex, Peter Jones, p. 76)
Ancient Mesopotamian texts in the 19th century BC recount that the condition of androgynous priests was due to their,
"devotion to Istar who herself had transformed their masculinity into femininity.” (ibid)
Augustine in his City of God vividly describes the 5th century pagan games,
" offered in honor of Tanit, the celestial "virgin" and mother of the gods. He also describes the public display of the goddess's homosexual priests. "They were seen yesterday, their hair moist, their faces covered in make-up, their limbs flaccid, their walk effeminate, wandering through the squares and streets of Carthage, demanding from the public the means to subsidize their shameful life."

At the heart of ancient and contemporary ’new’ pagan and mystical pantheist spirituality is monism. All pagan and pantheist systems—ancient and new— have in common monism (primordial matter) and some form of evolution plus transmigration or reincarnation whereby within the natural dimension man can attain perfection apart from a transcendent Creator God. Monism means that there is just the natural dimension, an Ultimate Substance consisting of void, matter and mechanical energies (evolution) working on matter pregnant with the possibility of life, spirit, and conscious awareness.
The One Substance is the impersonal, divine unconscious mind or one-dimensional Divine Reality of which all life and nonlife are aspects in continuity with the Divine Substance. This means that apotheosis is attainable through yoga, transcendental meditation and other ancient magic ways. The Egyptian Sun-God Ra, for example, emerged (created himself) from out of Nu – the divine One Substance (primordial matter) and then became god by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one:
"I came into being from primordial matter...I made all the forms under which I appeared by means of (or out of) the god-soul which I raised up out of Nu (i.e., the primeval abyss of water.)" (The Long War Against God, Dr. Henry Morris, p. 243)
In all mystical pantheist systems positing matter (One Substance) as "psychic energy," "spirit," or impersonal, unknowing Mind, spirit is not personal. It is neither male nor female. It does not live, think or speak; it merely is. (Psalm 115:5; 135: 16) The human soul therefore is not created in the spiritual image of the living One God in Three Persons, thus it follows that humans are not persons but rather uncreated dehumanized aspects or units of the evolving universe of matter and energy. Nor are they either male or female but rather two-in-ones, meaning androgynes or transgenders as they are called today.
In the "Pagan Temptation," Thomas Molnar writes that the idea that matter is eternal is a pattern of thought stretching back to the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greeks in the West and in the East to the Upanishads. In this way of thinking, everything somehow mechanically emerged,emmanated, evolved, or progressed out of either eternally existing matter as the ancients taught, or in contemporary terms, from out of matter spontaneously-generated by an exploding Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) and undirected evolution over millions of years as contemporary atheists affirm or by a useless evolved god unable to create from nothing as evolutionary theists teach.
The symbols of monism are the Ouroboros (the serpent biting its tail), serpent power (creative energy that evolves from the Ouroboros), and the Divine Androgyne, also known as the serpent, Azazel, Goat of Mendes, Ba’al, Baphomet, and the All Seeing Eye.
When the European ruling class, represented by German Chancellor Angela Markel, French President Francois Hollande, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Liechtenstein Prime Minister Adrian Hasler, and Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern took part in the opening of the world's longest tunnel under the Swiss Alps, the ceremony was acted out under the gaze of the All Seeing Eye, the symbol of the serpent, Baphomet, Ba'al/Osiris/Horus---the god of death and the underworld.
As the European ruling class looked on, graphically sexual and blatantly satanic rituals were performed featuring a baby-faced Lucifer (winged Horus) and Baphomet (the soul of Osiris)--a horned, goat-headed demon, symbol of the Void, Divine Energy, or Universal Spirit and its seething serpent-powered evolutionary energies. The androgynous horned demon was adored by scantily clad figures repeatedly prostrating themselves before him/her. As the horned god appeared horrific wailing and screaming was heard over the audio system. Then the horned demon simulated sexual acts with several of the male and female performers, many of whom were androgynous.

Modern Mystery Religion initiates and adepts seek perfection by conforming 'self' to the androgynous 'god.’ while we who are followers of the Way of Jesus Christ seek perfection by becoming more like Him while still retaining our created sex--male or female. For modern initiates and adepts perfection also means losing distinctive creational norms and their souls because pagan monism is a,
"...mystical, unitive experience, a state in which distinctions disappear and opposites are joined. Androgyny, on a sexual level, reflects and confirms such an experience.” (God of Sex, p.79)
The United States was mainly founded on a Biblical worldview with uniquely Christian presuppositions and morality. Today however, pagan monism reigns supreme. It celebrates the Divine Androgyne, abhors the Triune Creator, hates His creation and creation structures, and promotes abortion, infanticide, and anything goes pansexuality, The paganization of our culture is aided and abetted by compromising ‘churchmen’ who pacify the world by replacing the Genesis account with evolution, promoting sexual diversity and inclusion, social justice, and inter spiritual religious unity. In time, compromisers will segue into pagan temple priests.
Henceforth, they will be ministers of the devil (Divine Androgyne) said Matthew Henry. While most commentators identify the falling star as Lucifer, in his Concise Commentary Matthew Henry provides a second, human identity. Human falling stars are tepid, indecisive, weak or apostate clergy who, having ceased to be ministers of Christ,
"... he who is represented by this star becomes the minister of the devil; and lets loose the powers of hell against the churches of Christ. On the opening of the bottomless pit, there arose a great smoke. The devil carries on his designs by blinding the eyes of men...putting out light and knowledge, and promoting ignorance and error. Out of this smoke there came a swarm of locusts, emblems of the devil's agents, who promote superstition, idolatry, error, and cruelty...the true believers...should be untouched (but) a secret poison and infection in the soul, should rob many others of purity, and....peace. The locusts had no power to hurt those who had the seal of God. God's all-powerful, distinguishing grace will keep his people from total and final apostacy." (Commentary on Revelation 9: 1-12)
This is no time for Christians to lose courage, said Dr. Peter Jones. We must unflinchingly affirm the Bible’s worldview—-beginning with the Genesis account ex nihilo— as the gospel:
“Knowing Bible verses is not enough. Unless God is Creator, Redeemer, and Consummator, and unless his character structures creation, there is no gospel to preach. Gospel reconciliation is reconciliation to God the Creator. Clearheaded preaching will include God’s revelation concerning sexuality. For—the battle for our souls is being fought in the battle for our sexual bodies. “(p. 193)
