Dan Freemyer, the pastor of Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth has obviously been drinking very deeply of Progressive Leftism’s poisonous propaganda of the lie. To cheers from the crowd at Baylor University’s 2019 commencement, Freemyer delivered a poison-loaded prayer to a ‘god’ that is not the Holy Triune God but pagan Progressivism's golden calf:
“God, give them the moral imagination to reject the old keys we are trying to give them to a planet that we are poisoning by running it on fossil fuels and misplaced priorities – a planet with too many straight, white men like me behind the steering wheel while others have been expected to sit quietly in the back of the bus.” (Baylor University Prayer Denounces ‘Straight White Men,’ Todd Starnes, May 24, 2019)
Progressive Leftism: Gnostic Paganism
Gnostic pagan Progressivism is a religiously held view of a dehumanizing one-dimensional reality that stands in opposition to the Bibles two interacting dimensions, the natural and supernatural. The one-dimensional view is monism, or naturalism, and means that everything that exists, including human beings, are merely parts or aspects of the evolving natural dimension.
Naturalism means on one hand that the supernatural Holy Triune God who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo (Gen. 1), the 3rd heaven, man as His spiritual image-bearer, original sin, hell, and the devil and his evil minions either do not exist or are myths from man's pre-scientific past. On the other hand, Progressivism believes it’s true that certain men are in process of becoming gods, artificial intelligence is becoming conscious of itself, and highly evolved deep space beings – themselves the emergent product of the universal life force (aka the Force, Zoë, evolution, vril, serpent power, seething energies of Lucifer) acting on matter almost certainly exist according to prominent scientist Stephen Hawking and many others.
Like its violent counterpart Marxist Communism, Progressivism emerged over time out of a Renaissance rebellion against the Holy Triune God, Jesus Christ in particular. It was during the Renaissance that the Word (John 1:1), our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, was rejected in favor of ancient occult wisdom teachings and Gnostic pagan christ-consciousness when certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science – the divine technology or magic way of reaching divine status and powers through ritual procedures is the best proof of the divinity of Christ. In other words said Molnar,
"...by the time of the Renaissance the esoteric texts of the first centuries A.D. had acquired in scholarly and humanist circles an unparalleled prestige, confronting as equals the texts held sacred by the church. In Pico's estimation, 'nulla est scientia que nos magis certificet de divinitate Christ quam magia et Cabala' (there is no science that would prove for us Christ's divinity better than magic and the Cabala.)" (God and the Knowledge of Reality, Molnar, Pp. 78-79)
During the 17th century Progressivism delved into spiritism, absorbed Darwinism, science as a replacement bible, socialism as a new evangelism, Romanticism, and the philosophy of Rousseau. According to the morally corrupt Rousseau, economic freedom (capitalism), private property, the traditional family, and the complexity of modern society were agents of moral decay.
In short, Progressivism is a godless, philosophically pagan form of ancient Mysteries, Egyptian Hermetic magic, and heretical Jewish elements. Evolution---one of its indispensable doctrines---is derived from heretical Protestant liberalism's inverse, anti-creation account grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary, apocalyptic proclamation of a coming new order (Godless global socialism) based in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, and finally god-man as well as in the perfectibility of man and this fallen world. Therefore a leading goal and principle of utopian religion is the repudiation,
“…of the doctrine of Original Sin." (H.G. Wells, A Modern Utopia, 1905)
Repudiating original sin requires the death of the transcendent Triune God and erasure of original creation, a magic trick achieved by way of Gnostic Progressivism’s inverse evolutionary origin account (Darwinism) disguised as science. Darwin's inverse exegesis of gradual evolutionary emergence of life from matter is taken by Progressives as final proof that the universe is governed, not by the divine will of the Word (John 1:1; 14:6) who created humans out of dust,
"...but by a virtually divine force Darwin called natural selection. Having produced human consciousness, evolution may now...be brought directly under the control of its own product, Humanity, the accomplishment of natural selection..." (The Making of the New Spirituality, James Herrick, p. 150)
The contemporary progressive left holds that non-socialist societies are composed largely of oppressed victims and their racist, homophobic Christian oppressors who stubbornly cling to the Triune God, the Bible and their guns in the great fly-over zones of America. This is why Progressives view the United States and orthodox Christianity as evils that must—at all costs—be destroyed.
Not only must the old evil Christian-based order be thoroughly destroyed but as well, its corrupt leaders and supporters must be punished and destroyed. Toward this end, the Progressive Left wields its will-to-power mainly through media and academia to change our perception of reality so as to manipulate gullible, unquestioning Americans and Christians to view straight-white men, and orthodox Christians as racially and LGBTQ+ bigots deserving of shame, shunning, and eventual annihilation since only after purification of the world of all evil will a utopian socialist City of Man rise like a phoenix out of the ashes of the old order. In the golden age of utopian ideals to come perfect social justice and equality will exist under benevolent god-men.
Deception, Lies, Propaganda, Misdirection
The contemporary Progressive Left knows that in order to capture the hearts and minds of their enemies-- such as Dan Freemyer and Baylor’s cheering crowd---it must deliberately deceive them, and because it is conscienceless and thoroughly amoral it disguises its hatred, lust for power, death-wishing and quest for revolutionary destruction in the soothing terminology of traditional Western values such as human rights, civil liberties, and civil rights. But for Progressive god-men these hated values are just masking words for social justice, economic justice (redistribution of wealth and resources), eugenics (abortion, infanticide, euthanasia), and gender justice.
Gender justice requires the destruction of the Holy Creator God’s creational norms and sexual distinctions between men and women in order that socialism's New Man—a polymorphous androgyne, or transgender—can come into being.
It is toward this satanically ambitious, wholly delusional goal that modern Progressive elites direct their energy, powers, policies, propaganda, and crusades. This is why progressive ‘elites’ and their depraved followers are waging a brutal no-holds-barred war to crush opponents such as President Trump and his supporters in their quest for absolute power and authority to micromanage every facet of human life in a scientifically planned global City of Man.
Progressive Leftism: A Delusion From Hell
Progressive Leftism is a depraved, Christ hating, murderous ideology from hell. During the twentieth-century its sadistic Marxist Communist counterpart slaughtered in excess of 130,000,000 men, women, and children—more than half of them Christian--in its delusional quest for an earthly utopian Godless City of Man…the golden calf Pastor Freemyer prayed to and for.
The Revealed Word of God exposes the delusion, madness, malice, hatred, lies, will-to-power, and death-wishing hiding behind masks worn by Progressive Leftists.
They are dead in their “trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1. They walk:
“…according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience” (v. 2) "And because they did not think it worthwhile to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong. They are filled with all unrighteousness, evil, greed, and wickedness. They are full of envy, murder, disputes, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, arrogant, proud, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, and unmerciful. Although they know full well God's just sentence - that those who practice such things deserve to die - they not only do them, but even applaud others who practice them" (Ro. 1:28-32)
