Gnosis: The Main Expression of Paganized Christianity in the New Age

In the essay, "The Paganization of Biblical Studies," Dr. Peter Jones, Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary in Escondido, Calif., identifies liberalism and/or progressivism as a form of neo-Gnostic paganism, or mystical pantheism.   

Though Gnosticism emerged in ancient Babylon during the Jewish exile and eventually developed a 'Christian' variant, neo-Gnostic 'Christianity' first developed in 19th century Germany.  Its first real manifestation was at the University in Tubingen where an apostate Christian theologian named Ferdinand Baur (1792-1860) had formed a school of theology which would raise questions about the Christian faith, a tactic designed to undermine its status as the fount of truth and moral law through destructive criticism.  (1) Among areas which came under attack were the person of Jesus Christ, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the fall and nature of sin, the authority of the Bible, the way of spiritual salvation, apostolic tradition and Church doctrine.

By far the most heretical and destructive incursion into divine truth was the neo-Gnostic assertion of the immanence of God at the expense of His transcendence (separateness from His creation) so that the personal Creator becomes an impersonal expression of an evolving cosmic process. (1)

Neo-Gnostic 'Christianity' has absorbed and radically reinvented and inverted the Bible,  thus Peter Jones describes the essence of liberalism throughout its history as the importation,

"...into the church via the use of Christian terminology...the various historic expressions of pagan notions, in particular, the denial of God's transcendence.   In this sense, the first "liberals" were the Gnostics.  Certainly a form of Gnosticism, sometimes called proto-Gnosticism is behind the denial of the incarnation in the Johannine epistles, and of the resurrection in the early and later Paulines.   Interestingly, the Liberals of the modern period have had a great admiration for the proto-Gnostics, in particular, Marcion.  In A.D. 150, Marcion, a theologian from Pontus in Asia Minor, was excommunicated from the Church in Rome for heretical teaching.  He dismissed God the Creator, the Old Testament, the Mosaic law, and three of the gospels. From the few epistles of Paul that he accepted, he expunged Old Testament quotations and claimed to worship the "alien god" behind the God of Scripture." (Dr. Peter Jones, 2007, truthxchange.com) 

Dave Doveton, Canon theologian and Director of the Training Centre for Ministries and Community in the Anglican Diocese of Mauritius holds that the Gnostic temptation is at the root of every Christian error and heresy:

"In gnosis everything is the intellectual self-production of the individual."  Gnosis is the pretension of a self-redemption of man "who does not need the intervention of the Other of (One) on High, that is the intervention of God." (The Episcopal Church: the Way of Baalam, Dave Doveton...False Teachers and the re-appearance of ancient Gnostic beliefs, reviewed by David W. Virtue, virtueonline.org, March 28, 2011)

In "The Pagan Temptation," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), writes that the gnostic pagan temptation is never very far from a civilization organized by the Christian religion because  what paganism and the occult promise is self-created, deified humanity whose soul is "no longer touched by God." (The Pagan Temptation, p. 3)

The atheist claims there is no living God "up above" (in the third heaven) and that matter or energy in motion is all there is.  This view, however, has already been eclipsed by the thinking of neo-Gnostic mystical pantheists such as Hartford Seminary professor of liturgy worship and spirituality, Miriam Therese Winter.  Winter teaches:

 "Our Mother who is within us we celebrate your many names. Your wisdom come. Your will be done, unfolding from the depths within us..."  (ibid, Dave Doveton, virtueonline.org)

Thomas Molnar writes that the idea that "Our Mother who is within us" or perhaps a "divine spark" within us or maybe "world spirit," "One Spirit," "spirit of the age," "Spirit" "Christ consciousness," "deepest self," "Universal Mind," or "divine essence" is the spontaneous bent, 

"...of the archaic mind which predominated in most parts of the world and which threatens to prevail once more in our time the temptation. to identify God and self, to recognize in the soul a divine substance, indeed the seat of divinity." ("The Gnostic Tradition and Renaissance Occultism," Thomas Molnar, The Journal of Christian Reconstruction, Vol.1, No.2, 112, 1974)

Now that the supernatural Triune God "up above" is dead in the hearts of millions of Westerners, man's mandate in the gnostic-pagan process of conscious evolution depends upon the initiative of man, said the mystical pantheist heretic Teilhard de Chardin.  Christians should not fear the process of evolution because it only brings them inexorably into "oneness" or "convergence" with the impersonal, omni-gendered divine substance, Monad, Spirit or Universal Mind:

"Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is nothing but a magnificent means of feeling more at one with God...In a spiritually converging world, the "Christic" energy acquires an urgency and intensity of another order altogether." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 590)

Dave Doveton says the Gnostic pagan tendency places gnosis and/or inner knowing---intellectual pride, personal feelings and mystical experience---above clear scriptural teaching, and this tendency is behind the decisions of the Episcopal Church  to permit the 'blessing' of same sex unions.    In other words, said Doveton, gnosis can overturn the,

"....pervasive, absolute and strong biblical prohibition of same-gender sexual relations which has been interpreted as such and upheld by the church for two millennia..." (ibid, virtueonline.org

The Gnostic paganization of Biblical studies can be summarized thusly:

1. The Gnostic doctrine of the migration and/or evolutionary progress of the soul results in spiritual elitism

2. Gnostic influence reduces faith to inner knowing and feelings

3. The Gnostic idea of salvation is similar to forms of Hinduism and Buddhism calling for absorption into the One Substance

4. Gnostics believe that man's problem is not sin but ignorance  

5. For the Gnostic, the problem is not 'original sin' but the captivity of divine spirit in the material body

6. For Katherine Jefferts Schori, 26th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States, Jesus, or Teilhard's 'Christus energy," is not the Incarnate Word but the route to the impersonal God for Christians.

7. Since evolution implies continuous change, becoming, and/or progress, Gnostic pagans claim that there is nothing immutable about the authority of Holy Scripture.   Holy Scripture and by extension the traditional church are subject to change because everything is infused with impersonal divine spirit in continuous process of change, therefore Holy Scripture, truth, moral law and tradition live and evolve and  must in fact be changed as their purpose is to express the inner knowing and feelings of each new generation.  

8. Because feelings and inner knowing are 'divine' Gnosticism is bound up with victimhood.  This enables anyone with hurt feelings or gnosis to both claim the high moral ground and invent various 'identities' which demand not only special privileges (i.e., 'gay' marriage) and protection (i.e., safe spaces, hate crime laws, speech codes) but immunity from critique. 

9.Gnostics regard "consciousness" - individual (state of mind) and collective social as of primary importance.   This mystical pantheist notion is expressed repeatedly in Gnostic pagan writings  in terms such as "immanence", "consciousness raising," the "world spirit", "the One Spirit," "the spirit of the age," "the Spirit" "oneness" "Christ consciousness" "we are the world" "collective consciousness" and other like terms.  Since this "spirit" is always evolving and changing with the dominant ideas of the age not only must religion change but behavior, no matter how criminal, decadent, rebellious, and obscene is of secondary importance. 

10. For many churchmen in the Episcopal Church sin is not a breach of right behavior but rather, "sin lies not in the specific actions but in the context and intention with which it is performed and received."  

When Atlanta pastor Louie Giglio was effectively disinvited from delivering an inaugural prayer at President Obama's second inauguration and was replaced by 'gay affirming' Rev. Dr. Luis Leon, Dr. Albert Mohler noted that America has begun a new chapter in its downward spiraling moral revolution.  

From now on said Mohler,  if you believe in and teach God's Revelation and Christian truth you will be required to offer public repentance and evidence of having 'evolved' on the issue in question:

"This is what is now openly demanded of Christians today. If you want to avoid being thrown off the program, you had better learn to evolve fast, and repent in public." (The Giglio Imbroglio---the Public Inauguration of a New Moral McCarthyism, Albert Mohler, Jan. 10, 2013, AlbertMohler.com)  

Dr. Peter Jones warns that we are in the presence of a powerful pagan/Gnostic theological agenda, claiming to be spanking new, objective, scientific, and Christian but is in fact both Godless and as old as the hills:

"It is my belief that this trend in biblical studies is part of the setting in place of a pagan reconstruction of human culture for the planetary era.  Gnosis in one form or another is expected to become the main expression of secular religion in the new millennium. In order to equip the Church for this new age, the scientific study of Gnosticism is vital." (The Paganization of Biblical Studies, Peter Jones)

The Western and American Gnostic Caste System

Without our realizing it, the chief ancient and modern rival of supernatural Christianity--Gnostic Modernism (occult pantheism)---has triumphed over the West and America.   It emerged out of the Renaissance, a time of revitalization of ancient mystery religions, spiritism, magic, pantheist animism, and inverse evolutionary origin accounts,  and began its' infiltration of the American Christian church at the beginning of the last century.   In speaking of its' inroads J. Gresham Machen said,

"A terrible crisis has arisen in the Church. In the ministry of evangelical  churches are to be found hosts of those who reject the gospel of Christ. By the  equivocal use of traditional phrases, by the representation of differences of  opinion as though they were only differences about the interpretation of the  Bible, entrance into the Church was secured for those who are hostile to the  very foundations of the faith. And now there are some indications that the  fiction of conformity to the past is to be thrown off, and the real meaning of  what has been taking place is to be allowed to appear. The Church, it is now  apparently supposed, has almost been educated up to the point where the shackles  of the Bible can openly be cast away and the doctrine of the Cross of Christ can  be relegated to the limbo of discarded subtleties." (Liberalism or Christianity, Machen, The Princeton Theological Review, Vol. 20, No. 1, 1922, Page 93, Whitehorse Inn)

For faithful orthodox Christians, the 'very foundations of the faith' are the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis and to a greater degree, the Christian worldview.  Genesis is the Divine account of the origin of the universe, of all life, of the creation and purpose of man and woman, the foundation and purpose of marriage, the roles of the two sexes male and female, and of the value of children.

In His divine revelation God also tells us what went wrong with the world and man in the account of the fall and reveals something of man’s cosmic adversary and his timeless methods of deception and seduction used to lead men away from God.  Thus the question of evil, suffering, and death is explained in the first eleven chapters of Genesis as well as the ‘fix,’ meaning the only way of salvation.

Gnostic Modernism (mystical pantheist spirituality) and its' materialist evolutionary counterpart are subtly disguised syncretic mixtures of Babylonian Cabalism, ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, the Mysteries from the time of Babylon, spiritual evolution, Greek and Roman nature religions,Hinduism, Buddhism, reincarnation, karma and an inverted evolutionary account bespeaking the evolutionary transformation of various creatures into human beings.

 The primary doctrine for both variations is an inverted evolutionary account of origins.  Other commonalities are denial of creation ex nihilo, the incarnation and deity of Jesus Christ and His resurrection, and  denial of hell.  Gnostics of both stripes find salvation in the gnosis of elite men such as scientists, philosophers, and spiritual gurus and either teach a godless evolving  universe of matter or a pantheist based conception of God as divine energy, Life force, Mind of the Universe, Christ consciousness, or Omega, for example.    Gnostic Modernism further claims that as God is supposedly in everything, and everything is continuously evolving, then God is always in process of 'becoming' or 'changing.'   Thus all things, including the Bible and the Christian church, the two sexes, truth, and moral laws must change or become 'contemporary' too.  

Within Darwinian biological evolution, evolutionary dynamics are not empirical science but rather metaphysical conceptions while in theological modernism they are spiritual conceptions.  From the time of the Renaissance when high-ranking, influential Christian Churchmen, intellectuals, and mystics had rejected the fundamental teachings of Christian theism in favor of the Mysteries, Cabalism and other ancient creeds on through to the German Idealists of early 19th century, evolution was viewed as a spiritual conception bespeaking progress (transformation) of spirit over time within many different bodies.

The German Idealists were mystical philosophers of pantheism who predated Darwin's Origin of Species by at least half a century.  In 1799 the mystic philosopher Friedrich Schelling summarized what was fascinating him as well as his mystical contemporaries such as J.G. Fichte and the occult Hermetic magician Hegel:

"History as a whole is a progressive, gradually self-disclosing revelation of the Absolute." (A Brief History of Evolutionary Spirituality, Tom Huston)

The modern conception of spiritual evolution can be traced to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.  Writing on “The Ultimate Origin of Things” in the year 1697—six years after speculating in his Protogaea that over the vast course of the earth’s history “even the species of animals have many times been transformed” he claimed that,

a cumulative increase of the beauty and universal perfection of the works of God, a perpetual and unrestricted progress of the universe as a whole must be recognized, such that it advances to a higher state of development.”

Though the idea that man and creation are not fallen but rather evolving upward from primordial matter in a ceaseless ascent toward perfection had already been intuited over seventy years earlier by the German mystic Jakob Böhme, it was Leibniz who first placed it in a scientific context.

Over the next few decades Gnostic thinkers such as Diderot, Maupertuis, Buffon, and Voltaire all wrote about the fascinating topic of evolution but, "like any self-respecting champions of the Age of Enlightenment, rarely felt compelled to inject divinity into their more scientific speculations."

By upholding the liberating power of rationalism, science and evolution to subvert the fundamentals of the Bible and Christian theism, they actively sought to draw a clear distinction between science and spirituality, reason and religion.  In this context, through much of the eighteenth century, the many musings about the idea of evolution frequently took on a strictly naturalistic or materialistic tone:

"It was only around 1799, ten years after the storming of the Bastille, which ignited the French Revolution and cemented the success of the rational Enlightenment in the annals of the Western mind, that these varied intimations of evolution finally congealed into a cohesive new model of reality. Arising, once again, from the fertile depths of the German zeitgeist, it was a cosmological and metaphysical paradigm that seamlessly united science and spirituality—an evolutionary vision that stretched from the simplest atoms of the distant past to a sacred future in which human society would perfectly reflect the transcendent unity of the Divine. " (ibid, Huston)

In his essay, "The Paganization of New Testament Studies," Dr. Peter Jones exposes theological progressivism as neo-pagan Gnosticism and writes that throughout its history, its' primary goal has been the,

"... importation into the church via the use of Christian terminology, of the various historic expressions of pagan notions, in particular, the denial of God's transcendence. In this sense, the first "liberals" were the Gnostics. Certainly a form of Gnosticism, sometimes called proto-Gnosticism is behind the denial of the incarnation in the Johannine epistles, and of the resurrection in the early and later Paulines. Interestingly, the Liberals of the modern period have had great admiration for the proto-Gnostics, in particular, Marcion. In A.D. 150, Marcion, a theologian from Pontus in Asia Minor, was excommunicated from the Church in Rome for heretical teaching. He dismissed God the Creator, the Old Testament, the Mosaic law, and three of the gospels. From the few epistles of Paul that he accepted, he expunged Old Testament quotations and claimed to worship the "alien god" behind the God of Scripture. " 

Twentieth century's most dangerous expression of secular Gnosticism was Marxist Communism, a form of Manichean Gnosticism.  Also called scientific socialism, Marxist Communism was the first natural religion of scientific evolutionary Gnostic atheism to emerge out of the “God is dead” Enlightenment period.  Since scientific socialism is a religion of  'matter' and the energies that work on matter it requires the unmaking of man created in the spiritual likeness of the living, personal Creator.

Bella Dodd was an important leader of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) in the 1930' s and 1940's. Her book, "School of Darkness" (1954) reveals that Communism---the promise of a utopia-- was a hoax perpetrated by a banker/corporatist coterie "to control the common man" and to advance world tyranny.  In chapter eleven of Dodd's book she notes that the unmaking of man as God's spiritual image-bearer is the key to the spiritual, intellectual and physical enslavement of mankind:

 “This is the key to the mental enslavement of mankind: that the individual is made into nothing, that he operates as the physical part of what is considered a higher group intelligence and acts at the will of that higher intelligence….”

The mental and physical enslavement (dehumanization of the masses) is required by highly evolved gnostikoi (pneumatics), proud spiritual elites who see themselves as the only ones capable of reason and of ordering the lives of everyone else, right down to the smallest detail.

In "Against the Protestant Gnostics," (p. 34) pastor and theologian Philip J, Lee writes that gnostikoi take it upon themselves to divide humankind into three categories:

1. Somatic (hylic): the masses of unevolved mindless beast-men who are content to exist on a bodily level: eating, drinking, defecating, sleeping, partying, copulating, sodomizing each other, and dying.  Hylic are mere beast-men beyond help.  

2. Psychics: those who function at the higher level of mind, intellect, emotions---the commonsense types who comprise the majority of the Church, Tea Partiers, etc.

3. Pneumatics: the elite spiritual gnostikoi----the man-gods comprising America's Progressive Ruling Class.

The Gnostic Basilides, when asked if somatics could really be called men at all, categorically denied it.   Sounding just like modern gnostic Marxists, their fascist brethren and America's gnostic "elites" who dehumanized the masses in order to destroy the family, enslave, manipulate, propagandize, indoctrinate, gas, starve to death, euthanize and abort them, Basilides said: 

"We are men; all the others are pigs and dogs."  (ibid, Lee)

Modern Gnostic regimes (Marxist Communism, Hitler's Socialism) began by rejecting the Triune God and Christ's deity, denying objective standards of right and wrong, and forcing Darwinism---which dehumanizes mankind---onto an unwitting population.   Darwinism allows the gnostikoi to throw out sanctity of life and reduce mankind to matter in motion.  The end case in every instance, was to place absolute power over dehumanized masses (somatics) in the hands of antihuman psychopaths and autocratic states to be wielded without restraint or mercy.  

Of all belief systems, modern Gnosticism has been by far the bloodiest.  In his book, Death by Government, R.J. Rummel comprehensively details the roughly 170 million people murdered by Gnostic governments during the 20th century. 

Even at its mildest, as is thus far the case here in America, there is a steady level of lying, confiscation, corruption, fraud, and stifling of freedoms and free speech.  For the first time ever, Americans are afraid of saying certain words.  Parents fear disciplining their own children.  More ominously, the gnostikoi in control of American institutions---government, seminaries, education, media, science, finance, and law have nearly succeeded in replacing the living, transcendent God with Darwinism, thus allowing them to throw out both sanctity of life and objective standards.  "We the people" have been dehumanized---reduced to matter and energy in motion.

As early as 1926, President Calvin Coolidge was aware of and deeply concerned by the insidious spread evolutionary materialism (Gnostic neo-paganism) in America.  As he knew, Americans are free only because of the supernatural Judeo-Christian foundation laid by the country's founders.  In a speech he delivered in Philadelphia (July 5, 1926) to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence he tried to call Americans back to their Biblically-based heritage.

He reminded Americans that the Declaration's principles of liberty arise from man's God-given inalienable rights.  And these are found, said Coolidge,

"in the texts, the sermons, and the writings of the early colonial clergy..."  The clergy preached equality "because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man."  Sanctity of life, the right to self-defense, and all the rest of our individual liberties were justified "by the text that we are all created in the divine image, all partakers of the divine spirit."  God's children therefore, have no "superiors" there are no modern-day "divine rights kings"  (or gnostikoi) who possess "any right to rule...over them." (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

The Declaration,

"(is) a great spiritual document."  Its principles are not material but spiritual.  "Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man---these are not elements we can see and touch.  They are ideals (whose) source and roots (are) in religious convictions.  They belong to the unseen world." (ibid)

President Coolidge cautioned Americans that,

"......unless the faith of the Americans in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish.  We can not continue to enjoy the result if we abandon the cause." (ibid)

Coolidge ended his speech with a stark warning:

"We must not sink into a pagan materialism..."  

Issuing another wake-up call, Dr. Jones closed his essay with a warning that comes from Johannes van Oort, Professor of church history and the history of dogma at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and world expert on Manichean Gnosticism.  Oort states a fact and gives a challenge:

"…Gnosis in one form or another is expected to become the main expression of secular religion in the new millennium. In order to equip the Church for this new age, the scientific study of Gnosticism is vital."

Technocratic Trans-Humanism: A Global Religion

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HUMANISM'S ANCIENT PAGAN ROOTS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Humanist Utopianism

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

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

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

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

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

As It Was in the Days of Noah

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

In the hearts of all humans, bar none, is the possibility of evil, thus sin, said GK Chesterton, is as obvious as potatoes.  This being the case it is completely irrational for the unrepentant to think they can purify themselves and others when it is their evil conscience and will turned toward wickedness---aspects of their souls--- that need cleansing.  And it is because man is evil and depraved, that the 20th century’s purification movements-- Marxist Communism and Nazi Socialism---purified the human gene pool by murdering in excess of 160,000,000 men, women and children of which in Russia, approximately half were Christians.  According to Srdja Trifkovic, persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism, and mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Communist Bolshevism,

“….is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history….Attempts at “killing the soul” started only months after the Revolution of 1917.” Persecution and martyrdom was, “several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed. It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime.” (New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com) 

In his analysis of Marxist Communism, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyer describes it as the state form taken by a materialist pagan,  

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

Communism is a godless, philosophically pagan form of heretical Jewish elements and heretical Protestant liberalism's upside-down, anti-creation account grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary, apocalyptic proclamation of a coming new order based in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, and finally god-man and in the perfectibility of this fallen world. (1)

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

The contemporary chiliastic-evolutionary movement is Technocracy.  The world is being actively transformed by an amoral power elite and their minions according to a very narrow economical/political/social philosophy called Technocracy, and it is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world:  

"Technocracy is being sponsored and orchestrated by a global elite led by David Rockefeller's and Zbigniew Brzezinski's Trilateral Commission...Originally started in the early 1930's, Technocracy is antithetical to every American institution that made us into the greatest nation on earth.  It eschews property rights, obsoletes capitalism, hates politicians and traditional structures, and promises a lofty utopian dream made possible only if engineers, scientists, and technicians are allowed to run society.  When Aldous Huxley penned Brave New World in 1932, he accurately foresaw this wrenching transformation of society and predicted that the end of it would be a scientific dictatorship unlike anything the world has ever seen." (Preface, Technocracy Rising, Patrick Wood) 

Huxley concluded that Technocracy produces scientific dictatorship designed to scientifically engineer, manipulate, dominate and control the world's wealth and resources and micro-manage every human being in every detail of his life.  Moreover, said Huxley, the scientific and evolutionary system itself would become a god that was worshipped and questioning any aspect of it, such as the validity of evolution as empirical science, or any decision or outcome would be tantamount to blasphemy.  

Like its' 20th century counterparts, Technocracy is the evolutionary chiliastic expression of a coming Golden Age that is the culminating hubris of Promethean god-men who having 'murdered' the Christian God mean to purify and remake man and creation.

 In "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," highly respected political philosopher Eric Voegelin (1901-85) identifies many modern Gnostic movements.  They range from Comte's positivism, to progressivism, Hegelianism, Masonry, Marxist Communism, Nazi Socialism, Schleiermacher's doctrine of faith, Protestant liberalism, and Luciferian Theosophy.  

In an upside-down exegesis typical of Gnosticism, Helena Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy, leading Masonic thinker, and important formulator of chiliastic evolution wrote in her book, "The Secret Doctrine" volume II, 

"...it is but natural...to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind..."  (Theosophy University Press, 1888, p. 243, 513)

Chiliastic-evolutionary systems are modern forms of ancient and very "elitist" pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnosticism which assigns the Holy Triune God to hell and instead worships Lucifer.   Furthermore, it teaches that salvation is attained through the 'elitist' knowledge of Gnostic teachers such as gurus, god-men, certain scientists and Oprah Winfrey, a contemporary spiritual guide possessed of the knowledge of the Gnostic cosmogony. 

With Satan as the spiritual father of an army of unrepentant Gnostic pagans, it is no wonder that modern Gnostic systems have so far produced every dictatorial, genocidal utopian movement of the 20th century and underpin contemporary spiritually pagan, chiliastic New Age and Technocratic globalists hopes and visions.  In his article, "Leftism a Radical Faith," Bruce Riggs notes that much of the political history of the extended 20th century is that of massive extinctions of citizenries by their dictatorial governments: 

"Take the engineered mass starvations, torture chambers, firing squads, and gulags of Lenin and Stalin; Nazi gas chambers; Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge killing fields; the genocides of Mao's "Great Leap Forward,"; and the tyrannical North Korean Sung dynasty, and one will find that over one hundred million people have been slaughtered." (2)  

The authors of the Black Book of Communism point to the godless anti-creation Darwinian "biological and zoological" strain of thinking as the engine of evil that proved itself a most effective means of denying the humanity of millions of victims: 

"This strain of thinking is why so many of the crimes of Communism were crimes against humanity, and how Marxist-Leninist ideology managed to justify these crimes to its followers."  (The Black Book of Communism, Stephanie Courtois, p. 751)

The devilish Gnostic rebel Vladimir Lenin concurs.   Anti-creation Darwinism put an end to the belief that human, animals, and vegetable kinds bear no relation to one another and,

"that they were created by God, and hence immutable."  (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9) 

Twentieth century Gnostic pagan god-states systematically dehumanized and murdered millions of people in order to create an imagined earthly Eden purified of evil, and this is clearly insane.  Yet this evil religion whose spiritual father is Satan continues today as a God-hating, globally elitist, evolutionary progressive, politico-centric faith entirely disdainful of orthodox Christian and faithful Jewish beliefs and contemptuous of those who subscribe to them.  

In short, devilish Gnostic chiliastic evolution is a Satanic spiritually pagan religion with the look of a religious inquisition that represents the 20th century heretical version of orthodox Christianity.  Unless we grasp this crucial point the nature of this devilishly evil religion will elude us. (3)   

Rise of Satan's Chiliastic Technocratic Utopia

In "False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion," Lee Penn wans that the United Religions Initiative (URI) and the Gaia initiative represents the spiritually pagan religious facet of the coming Technocratic New World Order.  The URI is a United Nations organization that to a significant extent is animated by Satanic Gnostic chiliastic evolution. In preparation for the coming new order, a 'new' pagan spirituality is under construction of which the Earth Charter is set to become its Holy Writ. 

Crafted by a conclave of 'Wise Persons' headed by former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev, its benign sounding verbiage,

"and symbolic nature camouflage its dangerous purpose.  The Charter is intended to become a universally adopted creed that will psychologically prepare the world's children to accept the necessity of world government to save the environment.  It is also an outrageous attempt to indoctrinate your children in the UN's New Age paganism." (The New World Religion, William F. Jasper, New American, 2002)  

The URI has attracted a diverse group of activists and powerful supporters such as the Dalai Lama, progressive churchmen from the People's Republic of China, pro-gay Episcopalians, radical Muslims, feminist goddesses and witches, rich capitalist foundations, the Club of Rome, the Temple of Understanding, and the Lucis Trust, formerly called Lucifer Publishing.  Prominent supporters include occultist Robert Muller (former UN assistant secretary general and father of Common Core), Neale Donald Walsh, George Soros, Mikhail Gorbachev, Maurice Strong, Ted Turner, and Barbara Marx Hubbard.  (pp. 5, 7, 23-26)   

Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to the ambitions of Technocratic global elites.  Thus after more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in schools, seminaries, pulpits, media, academia and elsewhere global elite god-men like Jeremy Rifkin are finally free to declare that evolution is a living "Mind" enlarging its domain as it evolves up and through the "chain of species."  Moreover, now that the evolution god "Mind" reigns supreme, global elitists no longer feel like guests in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make their behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules: 

  "It is our creation now. We make the rules (and) establish the parameters of reality.  We create the world (and) no longer have to justify our behavior...We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever." (Algeny, Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

Here we see that in the completely delusional, entirely depraved (Jer. 51: 17-18), and ultimately demonically orchestrated global elite dream-scape it is not the personal Triune God who has created and sustains the world.  No, it is each Gnostic man-god who creates and sustains his own world and meaning in every moment out of his own divine consciousness.  In other words, since according to the devil the substance of the Holy Creator God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos, including the mind of man, then by occult magic rituals such as transcendental meditation and brain-altering drugs, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls the cosmos because he controls "Mind."  The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man. 

Given the likelihood that an ancient evil intelligence has crawled inside Rifkin and other Technocratic god-men the fact that New Age spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through mediums such as Blavatsky, Bailey, Benjamin Crème, Robert Muller, Neale Donald Walsh and Barbara Marx Hubbard, to name but a few, should come as no surprise.  Penn observes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a Gnostic progressive vision of apocalyptic spiritualized totalitarianism that includes: 

1. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom

2. Highly evolved humans are gods.

3. Advocacy for extreme population control

4. Concentrated hate directed at faithful Judaism, orthodox evangelical Protestantism, and Roman Catholicism

5. Forecasting a pending, and for them, desirable selection of mankind in which the progressives enter the New Age millennium and reactionaries face extinction.  For "New Age Apostles of 'progressive' Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution." (Penn, p. 7)  

Speaking through Barbara Marx Hubbard, her spirit guide 'Christ' prophesied in 1995 that the Rider of the Pale Horse will use the 'sword' as one of his means to "kill those who choose to remain self-centered."  (ibid, Penn, p. 322) 

The meaning of 'self-centered' is briefly defined in the Global Biodiversity Assessment, a document mandated by the U.N. sponsored Convention on Biological Diversity. This document explicitly refers to Christianity as a faith that, rather than making God and humans one with nature, has instead set God and humans "apart from nature," a process in which nature has "lost its sacred qualities."  The document states: 

"Conversion to Christianity has....meant an abandonment of an affinity with the natural world." (Al Gore, The United Nations and the Cult of Gaia, Cliff Kincaid, americasurvival.org, 1999)  

In other words, because orthodox Christianity teaches that there is an unbridgeable gulf between the Triune God and His creation that is only breached by Jesus Christ then idolaters like Jeremy Rifkin do not and cannot share the substance of the Triune God as pantheism teaches.  According to Christianity man is radically different from the Lord and atonement, purification and mediation is achieved only through Jesus Christ, Who rose from the dead.  This means that neither Rifkin nor any other Technocratic global elitist is god but rather an evil idolater speeding along the broad, smooth highway to hell.  

All modern Gnostic pagan movements share the same chiliastic goal: a coming "new pantheist order" and "new pagan god-man" completely purified of all evil and existing in oneness with the evolutionary god force.  This means extermination of all faithful Christians and Jews and other dissenters who refuse to become one with the god of forces.  

Purification also extends to Biblical moral standards, sexual ethics, traditional marriage and traditions derived therefrom since they have been by-passed by the ongoing process of evolution.  These will be changed just as all distinctions between nonlife forms, life forms and gender will be blurred in the idea of evolution from molecule to ape to man and woman to transgender to androgynous god-man.  In the same way, all distinctions between good and evil, nations and religions will be merged in the chiliastic vision of worldly purification. 

In conclusion, Gnostic chiliastic evolution is the anti-gospel of Satan, thus the antithesis of the glorious Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ.  So powerful is the stranglehold of Satan's anti-gospel on millions of darkened Western minds that it has imaginatively inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism, meaning that the millions of people whose minds are in bondage to Satan and his legions can no longer think right-side up.  With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by the evolution god it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but are instead gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.  

For all Westerners who are perhaps uncomfortable with, offended by, or outright hostile toward the personal Holy Triune God and His plan of salvation Satan's anti-gospel provides them a chiliastic plan of purification and a substitute deity---evolution---the animated god force of the cosmos which men believe they can control and direct.  Through scientifically controlled and directed evolution they imagine they are destined to realize unimaginable spiritual advances.

Demonic Mendacity of the Gnostic Progressive Left

Since the Sexual Liberation movement of the '60s,  America has been experiencing an explosion of neo-Gnostic pagan movements in concert with a relentless assault on unchanging 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 mystical, quasi-Buddhist, occult Gnostic, and other ‘blood and soil’ notions: New Age cults, Satanism, transcendental meditation, Wicca, goddess worship, ‘gay’ shamanism, reincarnation, Luciferian Theosophy, the Great Apes Project and all other animal rights agendas, Gaia worship, deep ecology, channeling and other such notions. All are types of pantheism, which stress in one way or another that mankind is ‘one with’ nature ( the evolving universe of psychic energy and matter) and should therefore make obeisance to it as Sovereign.

In his penetrating analysis of the Gnostic Progressive Left, 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 Leftist 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, which is precisely why Al Gore is synonymous with Gaia, global warming, and carbon footprints, and the Left in general is so very ‘green.’  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 Gnostic Left has been busily 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 and marginalize and deconstruct the Declaration of Independence—the charter document—and to cleverly infiltrate new and alien meaning into our Constitution. Whereas originally, the individual’s right to liberty was viewed as God-given---thus fixed and unchanging---the Holy Trinity has been declared dead and subsequently replaced by a divine energy identified as 'natural selection,' and a mystical god-State, while group privileges are increasingly sweeping away individual rights. And where each and every human life possesses an ‘inalienable right to life’ was held as an immutable truth and a universal moral good, the ‘scientifically enlightened’ politically correct view holds that truth and morality are irrelevant and human life without value, dignity, or purpose. Taking the place of our inalienable right to life is politically correct choice. In reality, choice is an 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, and the abomination called partial birth abortion---which is tantamount to infanticide---are ‘good.’

However, despite these and the Gnostic Left’s many other successful changes toward the transvaluation or total inversion of America’s traditional cultural, social, political, and legal order, our Second Amendment rights remain a primary concern to the totalitarian ambitions of Leftists. They want our guns because a weaponless people are a helpless people.

Various Leftists and their ilk predicted long ago that they and an interconnected network of 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.’ A diabolically conceived ‘walk’ that would incrementally condition our minds, demoralize us, and slowly invert our traditional order by disarming, dumbing-down, and putting Westerners ‘to sleep’ (enslaving them) through immorality: ‘’sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.” The 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. For today, millions of Americans are an immoral, narcissistic people addicted to instant gratification.  They are an infantilized people whose ongoing mind-conditioning comes by way of warped, pornographic, propaganda-spewing media and entertainment. And while 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 and androgyny, one world universalism, 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 die, the American mind shuts down in tandem, thereby allowing the icecap of a new ‘green’ totalitarianism to relentlessly advance across our nation, snuffing out the light of Christ, liberty and all things good. Under its oppressive weight, America is crushed downward into a dark abyss of godless pagan superstition, where at the urging of the Left’s demonic mendacity, 2+2 becomes 5, males are females, females are males, being bad is cool, but doing evil is much more gratifying.

Our 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, and lack of self-control on the other hand, leads to lack of impulse-control (determinism) and the downward spiraling consequences of 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 apathetic, drug-using, infantilized, violence-prone, obscenity-spewing, sex-obsessed people, and the name Jesus Christ is for many of these---and particularly for the Left’s ‘self-anointed’---- 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)

As we watch and wait in trepidation, wondering if our fellow Americans will be so foolish as to elect yet another seductive, charismatic Messiah similar to Obama—the most destructive Leftist ever—-we need to realize that our greatest enemy is often ourselves. For when we allow ourselves 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---will be the downfall of our individual liberties, self-government, and a free America.

Modern Gnostic Physicists and Transhumanists: The World is a Computer Simulation in the Minds of Robotic Overlords

Is the world we live in a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings?  This is the "scientific" theory put forward by a number of physicists and Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom. (1)

Bostrom is one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association.  Transhumanism is a blend of revitalized Gnostic pagan and Eastern occult pantheist elements and magic science undergirded by a strong Darwinian impulse.  Thus it subscribes to the modern myth of a coming Superman that is actually a counterfeit of the Christian vision of a new and perfected human race spiritually and physically transformed by the redemptive activity of the Holy Triune God. The counterfeit is an uncreated product of progressive evolution issuing in an upward spiritual and physical transformation toward ultimate absorption into a Divine One Substance---a Cosmic Mind, Conscious Universe, the One, or perhaps Brahman.    

 In the Gnostic myth, the Cosmic Mind for example, is a completely perfect therefore alien and mysterious Divine One Substance, an “immeasurable light which is pure, holy and immaculate.”  (Apocryphon of John)  In addition to this supreme god of nature there are other, lesser divine beings in the Pleroma, a heavenly astral dimension of the universe.  (2)

One of the lesser beings is an evil, malformed, ignorant deity sometimes called Yaldabaoth who mistakenly believes he is the only god.  Gnostics identify Yaldabaoth as the Holy Creator God of the Old Testament who created the material world, angels and human beings.

Although traditions vary, Yaldabaoth is said to have been tricked into breathing the divine spark of his mother Sophia that formerly resided in him into the human being (Apoc. of John) resulting in the human dilemma:  man is a divine spirit trapped by Yaldabaoth in an evil material body in a false material world.  The astral heaven is his true home but he is in exile from the Pleroma.

Rather than Yaldabaoth, modern Gnostics such as Bostrom and like-minded physicists suggest that the Holy Trinity is an evil alien supercomputer. According to one modern Gnostic account, the Alien Supercomputer is reminiscent of entities depicted in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey:

"It is perhaps a ripe coincidence, that the Coptic word for simulation found in Gnostic texts is hal, recalling HAL the rebellious computer in Kubrick's 2001."  (3)

In this context, the Holy Trinity is the expression of an ego-driven consciousness,  the evil Lord Archon--- a projection of artificial intelligence.  The Lord Archon has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent human beings from remembering that they are divine spirits whose real home is the Cosmic Mind or Gnostic Pleroma. 

The Lord Archon, the evil Holy Trinity in orthodox Christian theism is called,

"..... antimimon pneuma "counterfeit spirit." (Apoc John III, 36:17. (The term occurs several times in different texts.) The cosmos he produces is described by the Coptic term hal, "simulation." The vast planetary system of the Archons is a stereoma, a virtual reality projection in simulation of a higher dimensional pattern. Typically, the Archontic framework of the planetary system has been depicted by "armillary bands" that surround the Earth (and) Taken in many esoteric systems (Hermetics and Rosicrucianism) as the preeminent image of cosmic harmony, the model of the planetary spheres reflects a mindless imitation of divine design, not the living reality of the cosmos. "(ibid, 3)

Luckily for modern Gnostic pagans, salvation is available in the form of gnosis, higher ‘scientific’ knowledge imparted by illumined Gnostic redeemers such as Nick Bostrom and like-minded physicists.  According to Gnostic lore they are Christ figures sent from the Divine Substance to liberate human beings from the Lord Archon (Yaldabaoth).  The gnosis involves the revelation of man’s true divine nature and evolutionary origin resulting in his liberation (at death) from the enslaving material prisons of body and world into the higher astral planes of spirit.

Eastern Pantheism

In addition to Gnostic ideations, the idea that the world is a simulation in the mind of Overlords is strikingly similar to Hinduism's Brahman.   Brahman however is not an evil Archon but the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (prakriti matter, anima mundi or prima material), the Essence of all phenomena, meaning that the universe exists only as a mental construction in the mind of Brahman: brahma satyam jagan mithya, or "Brahman is real, the world is unreal." (swamij.com/mahavakyas)

Brahman is the Void, an indefinite and seemingly infinite field of energy that the pantheist quantum physicists Zohar and Marshall call the ‘quantum vacuum,” a background without features that seems empty yet is where all physical matter and psychic energy originates:

All the waves and particles that we can see and measure, literally, as in the Greek, ex-ist or ‘stand out from’ an underlying sea of potential that physicists have named the vacuum….just as waves undulate on the sea.”  This ‘sea’ of proto-physicality is an “all pervasive, underlying field of potential…the vacuum.”   (4)

The ‘quantum vacuum,’ is very similar to some Hindu and Buddhist accounts of the origins of physical and psychic objects as emanations from the One and/or the Void.   Nor do Zohar and Marshall deny the similarity: 

The vacuum spoken of by quantum physicists, like the Buddhist concept of Sunyata, or the Void, to which it is so similar, is replete with potentiality.”   (ibid, 4)

The Void is the ultimate ground of Essence and occult mystical religious experience. As the beginning and ending of all reality, the Void or vacuum is “the vast sea of all else that is.”  Moreover, humans are uncreated excited modes of the Void:

“…the vacuum has the same physical structure as human consciousness.”  As this is the case, then the soul of the Void and soul of the human are one and the same substance.  “There is…quite possibly a common physics linking human consciousness to the ground state of ‘everything that ever existed or can exist’ in the universe (and we) are part of it.  Each one of us as an individual is an excitation of the vacuum, an individual being on the sea of Being” and this is a straightforward conclusion of “orthodox physics.  It is…proven.” (ibid, 4, pp. 172-173)

Celebrated by the Satanic Temple (5) as well as by Masons and Wiccans, the devilish goat-headed Baphomet, known as the phallic god Pan, the ancient hermaphrodite god of nature, is another permutation of the divine one substance (prima material/Void) from which the universe and all life evolved.  As Pan the goat-headed deity is the first principle or essence of nature while in astrology,

"...Pan is one aspect and is also equated with Satan and life...in its base aspects."  (J.E. Cirlot, A Dictionary of Symbols, 1971)

Master Mason Eugene Plawiuk discloses the Chaldean pedigree of Baphomet and its close connection to astrology’s elemental spirits in ‘Liber Capricornus: the Symbolism of the Goat.’  Plawiuk explains that the goat is known to all of us through,

 “….the ancient science of Astrology first developed by the Chaldeans, or as they are commonly known; Babylonians.   The Goat symbolizes male fertility (and is represented by) the astrological sign of Capricorn…In fact the…Babylonians who gave us this symbol of Capricorn and the science of Astrology were the first Temple Builders, and the goat for them symbolized the essence of the Temple or Lodge…According to a research monograph on the Dionysian Artificers and Early Masonry edited by Manly P. Hall, the symbolism of the goat relates to the prechristian God Pan, Dionysius.   The Goat-God was accepted by the later Greek Mystery Schools as the symbol of the Temple Builders.”  (Presentation at Norwood Lodge No. 90, A.F. &A.M.G.R.A., Sept. 3, 1991, Masonic World)

Like Bostrom and likeminded physicists, Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees is a Gnostic pagan.  Rather than Robotic Overlords, Rees believes that super intelligent, highly evolved extraterrestrials might be capable of simulating in their brains or in a super-computer the complex history of our universe.  This means that the universe we inhabit is a simulation lacking real substance and existing only as a mental construction in the minds of the extraterrestrials that seeded our world with life and travel through time in order to control man's evolutionary progress. (Scientific Mythologies, James A. Herrick, p. 216)

Rees proposal is similar to the hypothesis presented by Olaf Stapledon, a scientist who has always kept one foot firmly planted in neo-Gnostic science fiction accounts and imagines our universe to be an artifact of the Star Maker. Building off of Stapledon's fantasy Carl Sagan suggests that we are "star folk" made of "star stuff." (6)

In the caption of his book, "Just Six Numbers," Rees reveals the ancient occult basis of his propositions:

"The ouraboros. There are links between the microworld of particles, nuclei and atoms and the cosmos." (P. 9)

As a powerful occult symbol, the Ouroboros means the seething power, creative and/or evolutionary impulse or energy of the serpent (One Substance) figuratively depicted as either a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. The serpent's body is often depicted as the Great Chain of Being or Cosmic Tree of Life.

From the time of the ancients serpent power (evolutionary energy) has been important to religious and mythological symbolism all around the world. Within the Egyptian mysteries, serpent power was associated with the elemental forces that were in play

“...before the creation of the world." (Carl Teichrib, Gods of Ancient Egypt, p. 182)

In his book, "The Sign of the Serpent," Mark Balfour relates how pervasive serpent symbols are within India and the Hindu religion:

"Any observant traveler who moves from the snow-tipped Himalayas in the North to the sun-soaked sands of Cape Comorin at India's southern tip, will encounter – particularly in the rural areas and at sacred centres of pilgrimage wherever Siva, God of both Divine Wisdom and regeneration, is the presiding Deity – the serpent motif sculptured within shrines, impressed on myriads of stone implants in the ground and depicted in art." (7)

Balfour elaborates on this belief:

"In Hinduism, the Cosmic Serpent – Ananta Sesha – symbolic of timeless eternity, carries the world on his 1000-fold [Cobra] hood...As the creative impulse stirs within the great Serpent in the Sky – when passive idea becomes active thought – the forces of attraction and repulsion come into play as 'spirit' begins its involution into "matter." (ibid, 7)

In conclusion, the Robotic Overlords are a continuation of pagan influence throughout Christian history that in our own time has grown increasingly assertive, organized, openly hostile and vindictive:

"In the twentieth century the pagan influence is pervasive, as many Westerners turn from Christianity to seek meaning in pagan myth and the new occult."  (8)  

Essentially, the growing pagan and occult influence denotes the occult ‘oneness’ of man with nature thus his progressive evolutionary ascent and culmination in the occult or magic science way of reaching divine status and psychic powers through modern technology, psychotropic drugs, and psycho-spiritual techniques originating in Babylon.  

From the time of Babylon, the quest of divine status and psychic powers has been guided by disembodied spirits (demons) who were assumed to be former human beings who had perfected themselves and escaped the wheel of karma and now enable initiates to evolve spiritually into higher and higher states of consciousness.  At the highest level the mind of the initiate becomes ‘one with’ the Void, or prima material, the nothingness that is believed to be the first cause of all that exists: 

 “Most deep ecologists are pantheists, and many explicitly embrace Hinduism, Buddhism or Confucianism…Some actively seek to revive Druidism, witchcraft, Native American religions and—among feminists---goddess worship.”   Drawing from Eastern religions and evolutionary science, “they place man’s identity with the rest of nature in his ascent through the evolutionary chain of being.”  Thus one environmentalist conducts workshops in which participants are urged to “remember their alleged evolutionary history by rolling on the ground and imagining what their lives were like as dead leaves, slugs, and lichens.” (9)

Though the modern pagan revolution in its inception was relatively bloodless, its consequences have been exceedingly bloody.  A river of human blood flows from the neo-pagan French Revolution through the Marxist Communist and National Socialist regimes which took the lives of more than 190,000,000 men, women and children.  Now it runs through post-Christian America which has sanctioned the euthanasia (murder) of the unwanted and the murder of over 60 million unborn babies.  Living, personal beings are routinely crushed within the womb and pulled out to be cut into pieces which are then sold and used as flavor enhancers, in cosmetics and for various scientific enterprises, including creation of humanized mice.  (10)  

Blood cries out to God for justice.  The Scriptures in both the Old Testament (Genesis 4:10) and New Testament (Hebrews 12:23) attest to this fact.  In his book, Christ Set Forth, Thomas Goodwin writes,  

Many other things are said to cry…but blood has the loudest cry of all things else, in the ears of the Lord of Hosts, the Judge of all the world (Heb. 12:23).  Neither has any cry the ear of God’s justice more than that of blood. ‘The voice of your brother’s blood,’ says God to Cain, ‘cries unto me from the ground.” Gen.4:10 (Blood Cries Out, Schreiberspace: Theology for the Everyday Christian)

Ideas have consequences.  The destructive, dehumanizing, catastrophically murderous ideas of our paganized age have their primary roots in Gnosticism and Eastern occult pantheism.  Thus the noonday sun reveals the merging of good with evil, light with dark, man with woman, woman with man and the resulting destruction of  the sanctity of life, the sanctity of marriage, the sanctity of sex, and the sanctity of the sacred itself,

"The culture is not merely post-Christian and post-modern.  It has become not only neopagan, but neo-barbarian."  (R.C. Sproul, The Other Worldview, Peter Jones, p. XII)

May our Lord have mercy upon this wicked, idolatrous, blasphemous nation and turn us to repentance before it’s too late. (Psalms 86:5; Psalms 103:8)

In the Face of America's Dominant Pagan Polytheism Who is Still On the Lord's Side?

America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of mankind, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, "I am the Lord your God...I am the Truth..." and "in His own image He made them, male and female He made them.....I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..." All else flows from this seedbed. Today however, a new Gnostic-paganism has displaced the Holy Triune God, our founding Biblical worldview, immutable truth, Moral Law, and everything good and natural. Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' it declares that the Biblical God is scientifically-passé  and that now every man is god and his own morals-and gender maker.
 
 Millions of human-gods, each with their own personal truths and moralities, and many evolving 'genders'---this is pagan polytheism issuing in chaos and ultimate breakdown ending in tyranny.
 
For more than eighty years the guiding hand behind the rise of new pagan polytheism has been a broad, loose-knit coalition of technocratic Gnostic pagans, occult mystical pantheists and atheist Jews popularly known as Marxists, Progressive Liberals, Fabian Socialists, Secular Humanists, liberal theologians, trans-humanists, New Age and other fellow-travelers.  This loose-knit coalition control the ACLU, GLSEN, GLAAD, Democratic Progressive Caucus, Democrat Stone Walls and Republican Log Cabins, PlannedParenthood, the NEA, CodePink, Sierra Club, and in fact, a vast, interlocking matrix of counter-revolutionary activist organizations and front groups including non-governmental organizations that interface with the UN; international progressive think-tanks such as Club Rome and Club Budapest; the Temples of Understanding in Washington DC and New York; and Lucis Trust, formerly named Lucifer Publishing.
 
Translated into global politics, the Gnostic pagan and mystical pantheism briefly outlined above is evolutionary Transnational Technocracy, a global Gnostic movement whose agenda is the imposition of a spiritually socialist, theocratic New World Order as stated some years ago by the futurist thinker, Jeremy Rifkin, an adviser to the European Union since 2002 and head of the largest global economic development team in the world. In 1983 at a point in the maturation of the 60’s cultural revolution, he declared in A New Word– A New World:

“We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else’s home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of preexisting cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces…..We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible for nothing outside ourselves, for we are the kingdom.” (“Paganism in Today’s Culture,” Dr. Peter Jones)  
 
It's in this light that political correctness (the public advocacy of vice) with its speech codes and hate crime laws are seen as modern-day Pharisaic legalism. It's no coincidence that the primary enforcers of this legalistic evil are organizations such as the ACLU, described by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, as being 'reminiscent of a temple board meeting' of atheist Jews: 
 
  "The spokesmen for groups like the Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Veterans of America or National Gay and Lesbian Task Force are all too often Jewish. Many of the member organizations of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice are Jewish. The membership of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)...is disproportionately high in Jews."  (America's Real War, Rabbi Daniel Lapin)
 
Surely one of the most bizarre and inconprehensible phenomena in contemporary political life, said Lapin,

is this assault that secular Jewish representatives are carrying out against religious Christian conservatives...They are targeting Christian political candidates and the Christians who back them..." 
 
 Secular Jews are the biggest anti-semites of all. Yet, like the Pharisaic self-righteous hypocrites they are, they hide behind the Holocaust and hurl vicious allegations of antisemitism against all who resist their program of evil:
 
"Let's not pretend that this is merely politics; it is bigotry...To attempt to intimidate (Christians) into being afraid to speak openly of their beliefs is...one of the most foolhardy things the Jewish community has ever done. It is immoral (and) hypocritical." (ibid, Rabbi Daniel Lapin)
 
Many years ago, a Russian rabbi pleaded with one of his congregants, Leon Bronstein, to avoid involving Jews in the Bolshevik Revolution. Bronstein, known to his followers as Leon Trotsky, defiantly informed the rabbi that it was his "Jewish values" that guided him toward socialistic revolution for the overthrow and destruction of the 'old order,' Christianity and Orthodox Judaism. The rabbi famously responded, "Yes, it is the Trotskys who make revolutions, but it is the Bronsteins who pay the price."  (ibid)
 
From Karl Marx to Trotsky and the murderous Bolsheviks---all are atheist Jews who rejected the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Moses and embraced instead, modernized Gnostic pagan and pantheist 'wisdom traditions,' and Illuminist ideologies otherwise known as the politics of revolution---progressivism, nihilism, socialism, communism, scientism, positivism, and materialism.
 
In other words, said Rabbi Lapin, Jews who abandon Jewish tradition usually embrace socialism (or one of its variants such as liberalism) as their new religion. Similarly, the same thing occurs when gentiles abandon Christian tradition. When they succeed in their destructive goals, it is often the faithful, both faithful Jews and orthodox Christians, who are left to face the horrific consequences.
 
In the essay, "Everything Must Change," Dr. Peter Jones, adjunct professor at Westminster Seminary, provides a time-line of events briefly detailing America's abandonment of its' Christian tradition and its' replacement by pagan and pantheist Gnosticism.
 
According to Jones, after the solid theological days of early 20th century Evangelicalism, which defined itself according to the great fundamentals of the faith, much of Christianity turned to a more sensational, experience-oriented "fundamentalism" that got caught up in the power of television (with its inevitable scandals), mega-church commercialism and cheap shot religion evidenced in such expressions as "God-hates-fags." The culture began to see Evangelicalism as a mindless, even dangerous religion.  This paved the way for the sixties Cultural Revolution.
 
 Appearing at first to be another generational round of student dissent, the Sixties movement actually redefined the nature of man and the world.  Moreover, it unleashed rebellion against every vestige of authority. In the place of authority, envy-fueled egalitarianism reigned, aided by postmodern deconstruction. Now all truth became relative and so-called free-sex became resistant to normative heterosexual gender roles and has since morphed into a utopian vision for a pan-sexual/omni-gendered society.
 
The pan-sexual culture of love-not-war, of LSD trips, occultism and Eastern meditation, of diversity and tolerance has in our own time become the gateway for "can't-we-all-get-along" interfaith occult neo-paganism, with its techniques of yoga, mysticism, Enneagram, meditation and new contemplative and/or centering prayer.
 
America's post-Christian, drug, porn, sex-soaked omni-gendered occult pagan polytheist paradigmn has become the dominant worldview of contemporary culture, appealing to the social and intellectual elite, in whose hands are the levers of social control (media, politics, business). These opinion-shapers, with little opposition, are now articulating a religiously pagan worldview for the life of the planetary community. These cultural progressives see no problem with mixing "new church" (pagan religion) and "state" (electoral politics).  
 
Meanwhile, some Christians have discovered a more biblically-based traditional theology and practice. Others, calling themselves Emergent or "Progressive" have refused the route of past historic Christian wisdom, and have gone in the only other possible intellectual direction, "Christian" liberalism. With Liberal apostasy, they change everything about orthodoxy, denying creation ex nihilo in favor of some form evolutionary 'Christianity' and the atoning death of Christ for sinners and the great solas of the Reformation in favor of elements of pagan spirituality-global interfaith, subjective mysticism and monism.
 
With faithful, orthodox Christianity now seriously marginalized,
 
"... many younger Christians are seeking social acceptance and popularity with the dominant post Christian culture via an atonement-less, syncretistic social gospel. The world's rejection of Christianity is cleverly blamed on narrow old-fashioned traditions, not the scandal of the Cross. The seduction of this pseudo-gospel, promoted by major Christian leaders and Christian publishing houses, is powerful."
 
As an icecap of Gnostic-pagan pan-sexual, egalitarian socialism moves relentlessly across America, sowing apostasy, breakdown, occultism, discord, envy, hate, imbecility, immorality, crime, and unnaturalness, it is not good news for the faithful, nor for what yet remains of Americas traditional order, freedoms, and Constitutional rights.  But one thing will never change said Dr. Jones:
 
"JESUS REIGNS. His death for sinners remains forever efficacious. He is building his truly global church, and, as Martin Luther knew, "he will win the battle." The serious question now is, as another hymn asks: "Who is on the Lord's side?"

Orwell's Big Brother: Gnostic Pagan Magician

“Thought crime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while...but sooner or later they were bound to get you." George Orwell, 1984

In the modern Gnostic-Hermetic/pantheist worldview of Marxist Communism, it is not the personal Triune God who has created the world.  No, it is each Gnostic pagan man-god who creates his own world and meaning in every living moment out of his own consciousness.   In other words, since the substance of God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos (Gnostic pantheist conception of World Soul or Mind), including the unconscious mind of man, then by means of self-induced trance states, brain-altering drugs, transcendental meditation and other Magic Ways, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls matter because he controls mind. The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man.

This way of thinking is captured by Orwell in his book, “Nineteen Eighty-Four” in which negation of the physical world is an integral part of the social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his despotic Party.   At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that,

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

When the Thought Police agent O’Brien tortures Winston for “wrong thought” he states,

We control matter because we control the mind.  Reality is inside the skull.  You will learn by degrees, Winston.  There is nothing that we could not do.  Invisibility, levitation---anything.  I could float off this floor like a soap bubble if I wish to….You must get rid of these nineteenth-century ideas about the laws of Nature.  We make the laws of Nature.”

Big Brother is a Hermetic magician in a long line of magicians going back to Ham in the post-flood world followed by Nimrod and the Egyptian magus Hermes Trismegistus, the early Christian-era Gnostic Simon Magus and Valentinus, Eastern Tantric sages, Yogis, and god-men on through to Renaissance magicians such as Agrippa, and Paracelsus.

As Big Brother is a pagan magician he holds to the oneness of existence.  What this means to Big Brother is that since the universe is a self-creating, self-developing (evolving) living organism (i.e., Mind, Void, World Soul) consisting of interconnected parts (i.e., plants, animals, humans, land, cities, oceans) bound together by psychic energy then physical matter (human body, brain) and psychic energies are mutually transmutable. 

This was announced as the Grand Principle of Hermes Trismegistus and found expression in the teaching that everything that is high,

 ".....is equal to what is low, and everything low is equal to what is high.” (God and the Knowledge of Reality, Thomas Molnar, p. 82)

 Hermes formula means there is an absolute although hidden unity, a Great Chain of Being, between the lower world of physical matter and the higher astral realm of the impersonal world soul, the key of which lends to the magician incalculable powers when he earns how to acquire divine intellect.

The Great Chain of Being corresponds to an interconnected hierarchy of different unseen dimensions or astral-planes within the impersonal mind of the World Soul comprising the habitations,

“.....(of all) supernatural entities, the locale of gods and demons, the void where the thought-forms dwell, the region inhabited by spirits of the air and other elements, and the various heavens and hells with their angelic and demonic hosts…” (Beyond the Body: The Human Double and the Astral Planes, Benjamin Walker, 1974, pp. 117-118) 

With the help of spirits and occult rituals magicians,

“…believe that they can ‘rise on the planes’ and experience these regions in full awareness.” (ibid)

During the Renaissance, Agrippa taught Hermes’s doctrine of cosmic unity and that with the help of the Magic Way the magician could spiritually ascend the Cosmic Tree to the world soul and make use of things such as deities, angels and other powers above.

This was the core of Paracelsus’s teaching.  Paracelsus held that since all that exists is matter and psychic energy, then we are all “products of nature” and “children of the same vital and magic forces” meaning that there is a precise relationship between various organs of the human body and the “organs of the world” or astral bodies.  Thus if the human soul is influenced by the astral bodies it in turn exerts a definite influence on the “world-soul.”   (ibid, pp. 82-83)

Dr. Molnar writes that various ancient and modern texts in the corpus hermeticum describe the magician or magus who manipulates divine figures (physical matter) thereby achieving desired results among gods and other powers who cannot help but respond to the bidding of the magician.  Simon Magus for example, bid angelic powers to levitate him high in the air in order to astonish Roman and Christian on-lookers.

Paracelsus makes it clear that when the human soul manipulates the world-soul it “thinks and imagines” what has been suggested by the man-god and carries it out in the material world.  Molnar notes that this is how the magician’s divine intellect or consciousness,

“….can command the stars, can direct events, and even produce “new beings.”  Parts of these operations take place in the visible world, other parts in the invisible world, but the magus obviously has access to both.”  (Molnar, p. 83)

 In the work of the magus physical matter is said to undergo passion, death, and resurrection, the final result of the transmutation resulting in its' spiritualization and divinization.  The magus performs these acts as a means of reconciling what has been separated so as to achieve oneness:  the Divine Mind with man, man’s soul with the world-soul, darkness with light, natural with supernatural, male with female, good with evil, truth with lie.

Another objective of the magus is to rid himself of false consciousness and/or knowledge and to attain ‘true knowledge’ (self-knowledge) by way of his unity with the world-soul.

The Gnostics for example, held that in its unredeemed state pneuma (spirit) is unconscious of itself, intoxicated by the poison and false consciousness of the material world. Its ignorance is cured as it awakens from the darkness of physical nature to the light of self-knowledge.

Eric Voegelin (1901-85), one of the most influential political philosophers of the last century argues that Marxist Communism, together with many other modern movements such as theological liberalism and the ‘God is dead school,’ is a modern form of Gnostic paganism.    

 Marxist Communism, Luciferian Masonry and Theosophy, New Age spiritual pantheism and the New Physics of pantheism assert that all matter is a form of energy or particles emanating off of the Void, a concept that is similar to some Buddhist and Hindu thinking holding that the physical world is an illusion, that people have no bona fide existence since they are aspects of human consciousness. In other words, as the Thought Police O’Brien, a Gnostic adept or magician put it,

“…nothing exists except through human consciousness...”

Like much of what passes for evolutionary science, leftist academic, media and Democratic socialist thought today, this claim is solipsism and can be defined as,

The extreme form of subjective idealism that denies that the human mind has any valid ground for believing in the existence of anything but itself. (Alan Morrison, The New Spirituality, p. 20)

In Orwell’s novel the important axiom to which Winston clung was,

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two makes four.  If that is granted, all else follows.”

Modern Gnostic  pantheist progressives, liberals and fellow-travelers are amoral narcissists who manipulate reality by manipulating our perception of reality.   Like their father the devil they perform their magic by way of Big Lies, deceptions, revised history and propaganda streamed into the minds of their victims via TV, video games and other technology, media, schools,  and other public platforms.

Freedom is freedom to think and speak truth to madness, lies, and deceptions.  This must be the rock we cling to in this age of madness.  Freedom is the freedom to know that the Christian God, Jesus Christ Incarnate, created this universe and that we are all partakers in the objective world-reality which He created and will one day renew and perfect.

The West's Gnostic Caste System: Gnostikoi, Psychics and Somatics

Without our realizing it, the chief ancient and modern rival of supernatural Christianity--Gnostic Modernism (occult pantheism)---has triumphed over the West and America.   It emerged out of the Renaissance and began its' infiltration of the American Christian church at the beginning of the last century.   In speaking of its' inroads J. Gresham Machen said,

"A terrible crisis has arisen in the Church. In the ministry of evangelical  churches are to be found hosts of those who reject the gospel of Christ. By the  equivocal use of traditional phrases, by the representation of differences of  opinion as though they were only differences about the interpretation of the  Bible, entrance into the Church was secured for those who are hostile to the  very foundations of the faith. And now there are some indications that the  fiction of conformity to the past is to be thrown off, and the real meaning of  what has been taking place is to be allowed to appear. The Church, it is now  apparently supposed, has almost been educated up to the point where the shackles  of the Bible can openly be cast away and the doctrine of the Cross of Christ can  be relegated to the limbo of discarded subtleties." (Liberalism or Christianity, Machen, The Princeton Theological Review, Vol. 20, No. 1, 1922, Page 93, Whitehorse Inn)

For faithful orthodox Christians, the 'very foundations of the faith' are the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis and to a greater degree, the Christian worldview.  Genesis is the Divine account of the origin of the universe, of all life, of the creation and purpose of man and woman, the foundation and purpose of marriage, the roles of the two sexes male and female, and of the value of children.

In His divine revelation God also tells us what went wrong with the world and man in the account of the fall and reveals something of man’s cosmic adversary and his timeless methods of deception and seduction used to lead men away from God.  Thus the question of evil, suffering, and death is explained in the first eleven chapters of Genesis as well as the ‘fix,’ meaning the only way of salvation.

Gnostic Modernism (mystical pantheist spirituality) and its' materialist evolutionary counterpart are subtly disguised syncretic mixtures of Babylonian Cabalism, ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, the Mysteries from the time of Babylon, spiritual evolution, Greek and Roman nature religions, Eastern mysticism, reincarnation, karma and an inverted evolutionary account bespeaking the evolutionary transformation of various creatures into human beings.

 The primary doctrine for both variations is an inverted evolutionary account of origins.  Other commonalities are denial of creation ex nihilo, the incarnation and deity of Jesus Christ and His resurrection, and  denial of hell.  Gnostics of both stripes find salvation in the gnosis of elite men such as scientists, philosophers, and spiritual gurus and either teach a godless evolving  universe of matter or a pantheist based conception of God as divine energy, Life force, Mind of the Universe, Christ consciousness, or Omega, for example.    Gnostic Modernism further claims that as God is supposedly in everything, and everything is continuously evolving, then God is always in process of 'becoming' or 'changing.'   Thus all things, including the Bible and the Christian church, the two sexes, truth, and moral laws must change or become 'contemporary' too.  

Within Darwinian biological evolution, evolutionary dynamics are not empirical science but rather metaphysical conceptions while in theological modernism they are spiritual conceptions.  From the time of the Renaissance when high-ranking, influential Christian Churchmen, intellectuals, and mystics had rejected the fundamental teachings of Christian theism in favor of the Mysteries, Cabalism and other ancient creeds on through to the German Idealists of early 19th century, evolution was viewed as a spiritual conception bespeaking progress (transformation) of spirit over time within many different bodies.

The German Idealists were mystical philosophers of pantheism who predated Darwin's Origin of Species by at least half a century.  In 1799 the mystic philosopher Friedrich Schelling summarized what was fascinating him as well as his mystical contemporaries such as J.G. Fichte and the occult Hermetic magician Hegel:

"History as a whole is a progressive, gradually self-disclosing revelation of the Absolute." (A Brief History of Evolutionary Spirituality, Tom Huston)

The modern conception of spiritual evolution can be traced to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.  Writing on “The Ultimate Origin of Things” in the year 1697—six years after speculating in his Protogaea that over the vast course of the earth’s history “even the species of animals have many times been transformed” he claimed that,

a cumulative increase of the beauty and universal perfection of the works of God, a perpetual and unrestricted progress of the universe as a whole must be recognized, such that it advances to a higher state of development.”

Though the idea that man and creation are not fallen but rather evolving upward from primordial matter in a ceaseless ascent toward perfection had already been intuited over seventy years earlier by the German mystic Jakob Böhme, it was Leibniz who first placed it in a scientific context.

Over the next few decades Gnostic thinkers such as Diderot, Maupertuis, Buffon, and Voltaire all wrote about the fascinating topic of evolution but, "like any self-respecting champions of the Age of Enlightenment, rarely felt compelled to inject divinity into their more scientific speculations."

By upholding the liberating power of rationalism, science and evolution to subvert the fundamentals of the Bible and Christian theism, they actively sought to draw a clear distinction between science and spirituality, reason and religion.  In this context, through much of the eighteenth century, the many musings about the idea of evolution frequently took on a strictly naturalistic or materialistic tone:

"It was only around 1799, ten years after the storming of the Bastille, which ignited the French Revolution and cemented the success of the rational Enlightenment in the annals of the Western mind, that these varied intimations of evolution finally congealed into a cohesive new model of reality. Arising, once again, from the fertile depths of the German zeitgeist, it was a cosmological and metaphysical paradigm that seamlessly united science and spirituality—an evolutionary vision that stretched from the simplest atoms of the distant past to a sacred future in which human society would perfectly reflect the transcendent unity of the Divine. " (ibid, Huston)

In his essay, "The Paganization of New Testament Studies," Dr. Peter Jones exposes theological progressivism as neo-pagan Gnosticism and writes that throughout its history, its' primary goal has been the,

"... importation into the church via the use of Christian terminology, of the various historic expressions of pagan notions, in particular, the denial of God's transcendence. In this sense, the first "liberals" were the Gnostics. Certainly a form of Gnosticism, sometimes called proto-Gnosticism is behind the denial of the incarnation in the Johannine epistles, and of the resurrection in the early and later Paulines. Interestingly, the Liberals of the modern period have had great admiration for the proto-Gnostics, in particular, Marcion. In A.D. 150, Marcion, a theologian from Pontus in Asia Minor, was excommunicated from the Church in Rome for heretical teaching. He dismissed God the Creator, the Old Testament, the Mosaic law, and three of the gospels. From the few epistles of Paul that he accepted, he expunged Old Testament quotations and claimed to worship the "alien god" behind the God of Scripture. " 

Twentieth century's most dangerous expression of secular Gnosticism was Marxist Communism, a form of Manichean Gnosticism.  Also called scientific socialism, Marxist Communism was the first natural religion of scientific evolutionary Gnostic atheism to emerge out of the “God is dead” Enlightenment period.  Since scientific socialism is a religion of  'matter' and the energies that work on matter it requires the unmaking of man created in the spiritual likeness of the living, personal Creator.

Bella Dodd was an important leader of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) in the 1930' s and 1940's. Her book, "School of Darkness" (1954) reveals that Communism---the promise of a utopia-- was a hoax perpetrated by a banker/corporatist coterie "to control the common man" and to advance world tyranny.  In chapter eleven of Dodd's book she notes that the unmaking of man as God's spiritual image-bearer is the key to the spiritual, intellectual and physical enslavement of mankind:

 “This is the key to the mental enslavement of mankind: that the individual is made into nothing, that he operates as the physical part of what is considered a higher group intelligence and acts at the will of that higher intelligence….”

The mental and physical enslavement (dehumanization of the masses) is required by highly evolved gnostikoi (pneumatics), proud spiritual elites who see themselves as the only ones capable of reason and of ordering the lives of everyone else, right down to the smallest detail.

In "Against the Protestant Gnostics," (p. 34) pastor and theologian Philip J, Lee writes that gnostikoi take it upon themselves to divide humankind into three categories:

1. Somatic (hylic): the masses of unevolved mindless beast-men who are content to exist on a bodily level: eating, drinking, defecating, sleeping, partying, copulating, sodomizing each other, and dying.  Hylic are mere beast-men beyond help.  

2. Psychics: those who function at the higher level of mind, intellect, emotions---the commonsense types who comprise the majority of the Church, Tea Partiers, etc.

3. Pneumatics: the elite spiritual gnostikoi----the man-gods comprising America's Progressive Ruling Class.

The Gnostic Basilides, when asked if somatics could really be called men at all, categorically denied it.   Sounding just like modern gnostic Marxists, their fascist brethren and America's gnostic "elites" who dehumanized the masses in order to destroy the family, enslave, manipulate, propagandize, indoctrinate, gas, starve to death, euthanize and abort them, Basilides said: 

"We are men; all the others are pigs and dogs."  (ibid, Lee)

Modern Gnostic regimes (Marxist Communism, Hitler's Socialism) began by rejecting the Triune God and Christ's deity, denying objective standards of right and wrong, and forcing Darwinism---which dehumanizes mankind---onto an unwitting population.   Darwinism allows the gnostikoi to throw out sanctity of life and reduce mankind to matter in motion.  The end case in every instance, was to place absolute power over dehumanized masses (somatics) in the hands of antihuman psychopaths and autocratic states to be wielded without restraint or mercy.  

Of all belief systems, modern Gnosticism has been by far the bloodiest.  In his book, Death by Government, R.J. Rummel comprehensively details the roughly 170 million people murdered by Gnostic governments during the 20th century. 

Even at its mildest, as is thus far the case here in America, there is a steady level of lying, confiscation, corruption, fraud, and stifling of freedoms and free speech.  For the first time ever, Americans are afraid of saying certain words.  Parents fear disciplining their own children.  More ominously, the gnostikoi in control of American institutions---government, seminaries, education, media, science, finance, and law have nearly succeeded in replacing the living, transcendent God with Darwinism, thus allowing them to throw out both sanctity of life and objective standards.  "We the people" have been dehumanized---reduced to matter and energy in motion.

As early as 1926, President Calvin Coolidge was aware of and deeply concerned by the insidious spread evolutionary materialism (Gnostic neo-paganism) in America.  As he knew, Americans are free only because of the supernatural Judeo-Christian foundation laid by the country's founders.  In a speech he delivered in Philadelphia (July 5, 1926) to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence he tried to call Americans back to their Biblically-based heritage.

He reminded Americans that the Declaration's principles of liberty arise from man's God-given inalienable rights.  And these are found, said Coolidge,

"in the texts, the sermons, and the writings of the early colonial clergy..."  The clergy preached equality "because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man."  Sanctity of life, the right to self-defense, and all the rest of our individual liberties were justified "by the text that we are all created in the divine image, all partakers of the divine spirit."  God's children therefore, have no "superiors" there are no modern-day "divine rights kings"  (or gnostikoi) who possess "any right to rule...over them." (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

The Declaration,

"(is) a great spiritual document."  Its principles are not material but spiritual.  "Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man---these are not elements we can see and touch.  They are ideals (whose) source and roots (are) in religious convictions.  They belong to the unseen world." (ibid)

President Coolidge cautioned Americans that,

"......unless the faith of the Americans in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish.  We can not continue to enjoy the result if we abandon the cause." (ibid)

Coolidge ended his speech with a stark warning:

"We must not sink into a pagan materialism..."  

Issuing another wake-up call, Dr. Jones closed his essay with a warning that comes from Johannes van Oort, Professor of church history and the history of dogma at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and world expert on Manichean Gnosticism.  Oort states a fact and gives a challenge:

"…Gnosis in one form or another is expected to become the main expression of secular religion in the new millennium. In order to equip the Church for this new age, the scientific study of Gnosticism is vital."
