Why Are Americans Voting for a Mouthy, Junk-Yard Dog Like Trump?

In "Donald Trump is Shocking, Vulgar, and Right,"  Tucker Carlson asks his readers, "when was the last time you stopped yourself from saying something you believed to be true for fear of being punished or criticized for saying it?"  If you live in America, it probably hasn’t been long:

"That’s not just a talking point about political correctness. It’s the central problem with our national conversation, the main reason our debates are so stilted and useless. You can’t fix a problem if you don’t have the words to describe it. You can’t even think about it clearly."   ("Donald Trump is Shocking, Vulgar, and Right,“ politico.com)

After more than fifty years of having it pounded into our heads by those who love darkness, lies and evil that unchanging truth and evil do not exist, the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos leave many if not most Americans without the right words to express their shock and revulsion.  Evil however, is an appropriate descriptor.  

Planned Parenthood butchers either skillfully crush unborn living babies in order to behead and cannibalize them for their body parts or as we now learn, kill them upon birth for the same barbaric purposes.  This is evil rationalized and justified by wicked liars as "scientific research" a "woman's choice" and "family planning."    Similarly, much of what passes today for 'free speech' is lies, shameless bragging, ingratitude, hate, vulgarity, contempt, resentment, envy , malice and death-wishing rationalized and justified by morally unfettered barbarians as 'free speech.' 

According to Carlson, this depressing state of affairs made Trump’s political career, and, "my dear fellow Republicans, he's all your fault:"

" In a country where almost everyone in public life lies reflexively, it’s thrilling to hear someone say what he really thinks, even if you believe he’s wrong. It’s especially exciting when you suspect he’s right, " despite that Christians largely know that Trumps' brand of Christianity is "a ludicrous imitation of a faithful Christian, the least holy roller ever."

So why are decent, law-abiding Americans and faithful Christians overwhelmingly supporting a fiery, mouthy, junk-yard dog like Trump? Though there is no one-size-fits-all answer, for many supporters, particularly those who are informed, it is obvious that those who love the dark rather than the Light are parasitic destroyers fast-tracking America into hell, thus in desperation they see in Trump someone who might save our nation from some or all of the following pathologies:

1.Growing secularization (subjectivist paganism) proceeding hand in hand with the ‘evolutionising’ of the culture

2. A rise in militant—atheism and a growing intolerance of the Bible’s account of Creation, the two sexes, God ordained marriage, the Fall, the Flood, immutable truth, moral absolutes, Christian holidays, Ten Commandment monuments, cemetery crosses, private property, our right to defend ourselves from the evil intentioned, the founders and even the Constitution

3.  Widespread acceptance of sodomy, lesbianism, transgender

4. Culture wide embrace of a man-centered morality (subjectivism/political correctness) that is in opposition to Christianity and rationalizes the persecution, imprisonment, and impoverishment of Christians

5. With the disappearance of Biblical ethics like the sanctity of human life we witness the ongoing consequences relating to the dehumanization of humans and subsequent cheapening of human life in abortion, the sexualization and perversion of children, embryonic stem cell research and various forms of euthanasia.

All of this unfolding evil leads some evangelicals such as Phyllis Schlafly and mega-church pastor Robert Jeffress  to endorse Trump because they believe he is Americas' last best hope.  Others see in him a modern Cyrus, raised up by God to restore our nation.  In summation, Carlson believes they’re looking for,

 "a bodyguard, someone to shield them from mounting (and real) threats to their freedom of speech and worship. Trump fits that role nicely, better in fact than many church-going Republicans. For eight years, there was a born-again in the White House. How’d that work out for Christians, here and in Iraq?"

Though Obama claims to be Christian, his liberal (apostate) brand does not qualify as the real thing.   Moreover, liberal 'Christianity' and other such man-and-world centered permutations are symptoms of the much larger apostasy and spiritual disease afflicting and killing our society, and by extension, why America increasingly resembles the spiritual vacuum that is the now-dead Christendom.   Similar to that dead zone, America is a roiling sea of darkness dotted here and there by very small islands of Light.  No man--no not Trump either--- can make great an apostatizing, spiritually diseased and dying society in which a majority of its citizens are slaves to appetites.  Without a Ninevah-style repentance and turning back to the Lord, it seems more likely that Trump will prove to be another tin-pot dictator rather than a Cyrus.    Only time will tell.

Malignant Narcissism, Ressentiment and the Wrath of God


Pride (narcissism) is the devil's favorite sin. In his Commentary on Psalm 18/2, 15,  St. Augustine records that pride turned Lucifer into Satan and banned him eternally from heaven. It causes the soul to rebel against God and wander off into the darkness. This vice is thus no slight evil:
 
"It makes those infected with it refuse to bow their necks to the yoke of Christ while they harness themselves all the more tightly to the bondage of sin."
 
The Decalogue shows that the beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over the Holy Trinity and neighbor). The wicked will of the proud man is not in submission to the Trinity but autonomous self.  Having made an idol out of himself as increasing numbers of narcissistic Americans and in particular Leftist pagans and their liberal acolytes have done, the narcissist assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why preference for 'self' leads to contempt for truth, law (i.e.,the Ten Commandments and Constitution), wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, institutions and other people and their families, property, and wealth.   As a whole, Scripture combines pride with covetousness, greed, malice, hatred, and jealousy into a single concept--ressentiment--- that is a manifestation of idolatry of self issuing in hatred of the Holy God and one's brother, which means that there can be no love whatsoever where there is envy (ressentiment) and hatred in one's heart. 
 
Ressentiment is the passion which causes evil.  It is the father of death,
 
"... the first entrance for sin, the root of wickedness, the birth of sorrow, the mother of misfortune, the basis of disobedience, the beginning of shame. Envy banishes us from paradise....Envy made Joseph a slave. Envy is the death-dealing sting, the hidden weapon, the sickness of nature, the bitter poison, the self-willed emaciation, the bitter dart, the nail of the soul, the fire in the heart, the flame burning on the inside..." (Life of Moses, Gregory of Nyssa, quoted in Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. Aquaro, p. 74)
 
In his first edition dictionary, "The American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828" Noah Webster defines ressentiment, or what he simply identifies as envy as,
 
"...pain, uneasiness, mortification or discontent excited by the sight of another's superiority (often spiritual)or success, accompanied by some degree of hatred or malignity, often or usually with a desire or an effort to depreciate the person, and with pleasure at seeing him depressed; malice, malignity, invidiousness, ill will."
 
According to Webster, malice is,

"extreme enmity of heart; malevolence; a disposition to injure others...from mere personal gratification or from a spirit of revenge."
 
Malice is inseparable from the following:
 
1. Malevolence: having an evil disposition towards another or others; wishing evil to others....a malevolent heart rejoices in the misfortune of others

2. Malign: to regard with envy or malice; to treat with extreme enmity; to injure maliciously
 
3. Malignant: malicious; having extreme malevolence; bitter enmity; malice

 

 Oozing malice, Bill Maher unwittingly reveals his evil disposition in his malevolent description of Christianity as a,

 “...sexist, homophobic, magic act that’s been used to justify everything from genital mutilation to genocide..." “You want to raise the tax on tobacco so kids don’t get cancer? Okay, but let’s put one on Sunday school so they don’t get stupid.”  (Churches Should Pay Taxes for Making Children ‘Stupid’, zionica.com, April 19, 2016)

In his seminal work, "Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture," Herbert Schlossberg, a Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and leading scholar on the relationship between Christianity and the societies in which it has existed, writes that ressentiment begins with perceived injury occasioned by envy toward and covetousness of the spiritual and/or temporal possessions or qualities possessed by another person.  If the perception is not either sublimated,
 
 "...or assuaged by the doing of some injury to the object of the feeling, the result is a persistent mental condition, stemming from the repression of emotions that are not acceptable when openly expressed.  The result is hatred and the impulse to spite and to say things that detract from the other's worth." (p. 51)
 
Malevolence, or what Schlossberg describes as Schadenfreude, is rejoicing at another person's suffering, thus vengeance is the principle manifestation of ressentiment.
 
Ressentiment has its origin in the tendency to make comparisons between the attributes of another and one's own attributes such as wealth, popularity, appearance, intelligence, success, personality, position, gender (straight male, straight female), children, and friends, for example.  Any perceived superior difference is enough to set the pathology in motion.  Thus ressentiment whispers continually:
 
"I can forgive everything, but not that you are---that you are what you are----that I am not what you are---indeed that I am not you."    (Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior, Helmut Schoeck, ibid, Schlossberg, p. 52)
 
The envied other's very existence is a reproach, 
 
"When heaven with such parts blest him, have I not reason to detest him?" is a genuine and natural expression of the human mind.  The man who writes as we cannot write, who speaks as we cannot speak, labors as we cannot labor, thrives as we cannot thrive, has accumulated on his person all the offenses of which man can be guilty.  Down with him! Why cumbereth he the ground?" (Schoeck)
 
Ressentiment as Progressive Leftism's Politics of Evil
 
"Political Ponerology" is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej M. £obaczewski to an interdisciplinary study of the founders (i.e., Karl Marx) and supporters of 20th century totalitarian political regimes. His study utilizes data from psychology, sociology, philosophy, and history to account for the propagation of man's inhumanity to man through such phenomena as terrorism, aggressive war, ethnic cleansing, ostracism, genocide, and despotism:

"As many as 7 million Ukrainians were starved in Soviet Socialist dictator Joseph Stalin's artificial, forced famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. This is approximately the total population of Manitoba, Newfoundland, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island." (Inky Mark, M. P. Dauphin – Swan River House of Commons 2 June 1998, Famine-Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933)

"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)

"... On one side, millions of starving peasants, their bodies often swollen from lack of food; on the other, soldiers, members of the GPU carrying out the instructions of the dictatorship of the proletariat. They had gone over the country like a swarm of locusts and taken away everything edible; they had shot or exiled thousands of peasants, sometimes whole villages; they had reduced some of the most fertile land in the world to a melancholy desert." ( Malcolm Muggeridge, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)

"Food is a weapon." (Maxim Litvinov, Soviet Commissar of Foreign Affairs)

According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist and Socialist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were criminal enterprises in their very essence:

"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)
 
Financed by Western Progressives, a coalition of God-hating, ressentiment fueled atheist pagan Jews (Bolsheviks) and atheist pagan Gentiles (Marxist Communists) systematically stole the personal property of Russians. Fueled by malevolence, they sexually perverted the children of their victims and conditioned them to hate the Trinity butJesus Christ God Incarnate in particular, as well as their own parents, the Christian church, priests, and their homeland, its' culture and traditions. They undermined and destroyed the traditional family, unleashed a holocaust of abortion, homosexualized culture, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of more than sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

"About 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union, a Russian commission reported this week. In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the country's mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyed" Clergymen were crucified on churches' holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled," said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. The commission prepared the report for Russian President Boris Yeltsin. "I was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter," Yakovlev said. "It was total cruelty." (paulbogdanor.com)

"Persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism – mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under 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)

 Though Lobaczewski's study is a clinically accurate description of the nature of human evil it falls into the error of attributing evil to biological causes rather than the sin nature of man. Despite this failing, Political Ponerology is a shocking account of large scale evil super-heated by hatred of the Holy God and burning with ressentiment and will to power – or what Lobaczewski terms 'ponerogenic processes' that overtook modern Russia and have overtaken whole societies and nations since time immemorial.
 
Ressentiment has played a part in human dynamics ever since the Evil One persuaded the envy-bitten Cain to murder his brother Abel, Judas to betray Jesus Christ, the Pharisees to crucify Him, and Saul to suddenly throw his spear at David in a murderous attempt at pinning him to a wall. (1 Sam. 18:11) In fact, the envy-bitten Saul tried three times to kill David with a javelin (1 Sam. 18:10-11, 19: 9-10) and to bring about David's death by the Philistines. (1 Sam. 18:25)

After ancient Greece had been overtaken by a malevolent spirit of ressentiment, as is happening very quickly in America, an egalitarian, collectivist, or leveling impulse served to help relieve a malicious, envy-torn culture by leveling all people down to the lowest common denominator.   Ressentiment, or political correctness enforced by hate crime laws in modern terminology, was enforced by character destruction and the threat of ostracism:

"...one had to watch not only the malevolent actions of envious friends and enemies, but the very real threat of ostracism by the democratic community. Philanthropy had much less to do with (love of man) as it had with....avoiding other people's phthonos of one's success." (Death by Envy, p. 14)

Today increasing numbers of Americans at every level of society, on both left and right, Christian and non-Christian, are controlled by their passions unfettered from the restraint of transcendent immutable Truth and Moral Law. Adding to the problem are morally relative, culturally relevant church models attended by thousands of Americans that cater to felt-needs and self-indulgent emotional feel-goodism (2 Tim. 4: 1-220). Thus America is "a nation ruled by its passions," said Reb Bradley, author of "Born Liberal Raised Right." This is why heinous acts,

"...of casual disregard for life, unheard of fifty years ago, have become a familiar item on the evening news; students killing classmates, children murdering their playmates....these gruesome crimes are merely symptomatic of a breakdown of moral fiber..." (ibid, pp. 2-3)

Worse, ressentiment oozes from the pores of America's God-hating, self-worshipping Progressive pagan  ruling class, and in particular, our pro-cross dressing, pro-sodomy, pro-abortion, pro-every-dysfunctional-idea lending itself to the misery, impoverishment, degradation, humiliation and suffering of middle class Americans.  Former President Obama's barely leashed malice fueled his publicly stated belief that DNA doesn't make people male or female but it does make white people racist.   Obama's malevolent claims were described by our equally malignant media as 'bold' rather than enmity: 

"CNN reported that Obama, during an appearance on a comedy show, said “the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination” exists in institutions and casts “a long shadow and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.” The host, comedian Marc Maron, has been a guest on MSNBC, the failing left-wing cable channel."  ("Obama Logic? Racism is Genetic, Gender is a Choice, Cliff Kincaid, gopusa.com, June 23, 2015

 When ressentiment has finally saturated a society's entire ruling class and its' privileged special rights groups (barbarians),  and opposition from morally convicted people has been crushed as is underway even now, then we are dealing with what Lobaczewski calls Macrosocial Evil or a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." (p. 121)

The most frightening aspect of America's descent into moral imbecility, idolatry, heresy, barbarism, ressentiment and lawlessness is that our society is being overtaken by "ponerological processes." Through the White House, State Department and other federal agencies, legislatures, media, Hollywood, courts, academia, pentagon, seminaries and even pulpits, the spirit of  ressentiment is encompassing our society, suppressing and demonizing orthodox Christians, faithful Jews and other morally informed people, and overspreading our nation with a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." This will lead inevitably to a tyranny of evil, persecution and martyrdom:

"The New Martyrs' example and their legacy is precious, because in this, 21st century, it will be the turn of Western Christians to experience martyrdom. In Western Europe they will be persecuted by the unholy alliance between the postmodern, Christophobic velvet totalitarianism of the therapeutic hyper-state, and a resurgent Islam which already accounts for a quarter of all newborns in France. In the United States they will be persecuted for refusing to accept the destruction of the moral foundation of the society, currently epitomized by abortion, by "gay marriage," and by the ever-expanding speech and thought codes. Instead of being thrown to the lions or sent to Siberia, the resisters will be subjected – by some monstrous mechanism devised by an ever more activist judiciary – to the mandatory "sexual diversity orientation sessions," or feminist-led pro-abortionist "right-to-choose education workshops," or "immigrant rights sensitivity training," after which the continuing refusal to recant will lead to compulsory "therapy" and forced medication. This scenario is not farfetched on either side of the Atlantic. Western Christians should be prepared for martyrdom." (ibid, Srdja Trifkovic)

In his 1974 essay, "Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations," ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn warns that the only way out for an idolatrous, ressentiment-filled people is repentance,
 
 "and the search for our own errors and sins.  We must stop blaming everyone else (and) claiming that we alone are in the right.  Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord.  Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth. "
 
Having begun the work of repentance, we will then be able to carry our Christ's command to,
 
"Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven.(Matthew 5:44-45)"
 
Without wholesale repentance and a turning back to our Lord, the wrath of God will fall upon this proud, ressentiment-fueled nation:  

"The wrath of God is a fearsome and terrifying thing. Only those who have been covered by the blood of Christ, shed for us on the cross, can be assured that God’s wrath will never fall on them. “Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through Him!” (Romans 5:9)."   (What is the biblical understanding of the wrath of God? gotquestions)

Liberal Professors Reaping what They've Sown from their Liberal Frankenstein Students

Recent days have witnessed a lengthening parade of liberal professors admitting that they fear their own students.  The latest is Edward Schlosser.  

Schlosser confesses he has intentionally adjusted his teaching materials as the political winds have shifted. (I also make sure all my remotely offensive or challenging opinions, such as this article, are expressed either anonymously or pseudonymously). Most of my colleagues who still have jobs have done the same:

" We’ve seen bad things happen to too many good teachers — adjuncts getting axed because their evaluations dipped below a 3.0, grad students being removed from classes after a single student complaint, and so on."

"I once saw an adjunct not get his contract renewed after students complained that he exposed them to “offensive” texts written by Edward Said and Mark Twain. His response, that the texts were meant to be a little upsetting, only fueled the students’ ire and sealed his fate. That was enough to get me to comb through my syllabi and cut out anything I could see upsetting a coddled undergrad, texts ranging from Upton Sinclair to Maureen Tkacik — and I wasn’t the only one who made adjustments, either..."  (I'm a liberal professor, and my liberal students terrify me, Edward Schlosser, vox.com, June 3, 2015)

Following a program of stupidity, depravity and evil devised by God-hating Bolsheviks and Marxists for the overhauling of Orthodox Christian Russia, for more than fifty years atheist progressive liberals have been doing unto America what God-hating atheists did to Russia.  This means that they've stealthily undermined and nearly destroyed America's Christian Church and Biblical-based worldview, revised America's history,  dumbed-down and sexualized our youth, and with full malice aforethought, have sown seeds of hate, envy and division:

" Atheist teachers in the West are bringing up a younger generation in a spirit of hatred of their own society. Amid all the vituperation we forget that the defects of capitalism represent the basic flaws of human nature, allowed unlimited freedom together with the various human rights; we forget that under Communism (and Communism is breathing down the neck of all moderate forms of socialism, which are unstable) the identical flaws run riot in any person with the least degree of authority; while everyone else under that system does indeed attain 'equality'--the equality of destitute slaves. This eager fanning of the flames of hatred is becoming the mark of today's free world. Indeed, the broader the personal freedoms are, the higher the level of prosperity or even of abundance--the more vehement, paradoxically, does this blind hatred become. The contemporary developed West thus demonstrates by its own example that human salvation can be found neither in the profusion of material goods nor in merely making money."   Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn  

"The root destruction of religion in the country, which throughout the twenties and thirties was one of the most important goals of the GPU-NKVD, could be realized only by mass arrests of Orthodox believers. Monks and nuns, whose black habits had been a distinctive feature of Old Russian life, were intensively rounded up on every hand, placed under arrest, and sent into exile. They arrested and sentenced active laymen. The circles kept getting bigger, as they raked in ordinary believers as well, old people and particularly women, who were the most stubborn believers of all and who, for many long years to come, would be called 'nuns' in transit prisons and in camps.

True, they were supposedly being arrested and tried not for their actual faith but for openly declaring their convictions and for bringing up their children in the same spirit. As Tanya Khodkevich wrote:

You can pray freely
But just so God alone can hear.

(She received a ten-year sentence for these verses.) A person convinced that he possessed spiritual truth was required to conceal it from his own children! In the twenties the religious education of children was classified as a political crime under Article 58-10 of the Code--in other words, counterrevolutionary propaganda! True, one was permitted to renounce one's religion at one's trial: it didn't often happen but it nonetheless did happen that the father would renounce his religion and remain at home to raise the children while the mother went to the Solovetsky Islands. (Throughout all those years women manifested great firmness in their faith.) All persons convicted of religious activity received 'tenners,' the longest term then given. (In those years, particularly in 1927, in purging the big cities for the pure society that was coming into being, they sent prostitutes to the Solovetsky Islands along with the 'nuns.' Those lovers of a sinful earthly life were given three-year sentences under a more lenient article of the Code. The conditions in prisoner transports, in transit prisons, and on the Solovetsky Islands were not of a sort to hinder them from plying their merry trade among the administrators and the convoy guards. And three years later they would return with laden suitcases to the places they had come from. Religious prisoners, however, were prohibited from ever returning to their children and their home areas.)"  
Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956: An Experiment in Literary Investigation, Books I-II  
   
 The success of progressivisms' programmatic evil is seen in many tragic and devastating ways today as evidenced by Solzhenitsyn's lengthy quotes, but especially by the fact that it is now a sign of intolerance, racism, homophobia, bigotry and hate to point out that man is not born good, as self-deceived Progressive Liberals of both atheist and cosmic humanist schools claim. Nor is man ‘evolving’ to some higher, more godlike spiritual state. The ugly truth is that all men are born terrible-willed hedonists, says Dr. Terry G. Shaw:

To understand…principles of human behavior…we must first begin by accepting (that) all humans are born hedonists (aka narcissists) and have an intrinsic need to seek pleasure, avoid pain, and engage in those activities that best accomplish both with the least amount of effort.” (Born Liberal Raised Right, Reb Bradley, p.19)

In 1926, Governor Theodore Christianson of Minnesota established the Minnesota Crime Commission to study crime and evaluate its causes. The commission eventually concluded that criminal tendencies were not the result of poverty, education, or environment. Instead, it offered the following brutal observation:

Every baby starts life as a little savage. He is completely selfish and self-centered. He wants what he wants when he wants it: his bottle, his mother’s attention, his playmates toys…or whatever. Deny him these and he seethes with rage and aggressiveness which could be murderous were he not so helpless. He’s dirty; he has no morals, no knowledge, no developed skills. This means that all children, not just certain children, but all children, are born delinquent. If permitted to continue in their self-centered world of infancy, given free rein to their impulsive actions to satisfy each want, every child would grow up a criminal, a thief, a killer, a rapist.” (ibid, p. 21)

The architects of our nation were men who did not shy away from the ugly truth about mans’ sin nature, which meant that if the American experiment in national self-government was to succeed, then as the Founders strongly advised, all children would need to be trained against their natural self-centered inclinations from birth:

Since private and public Vices, are in Reality…connected (it is necessary) that the Utmost Pains be taken by the Public, to have the Principle of Virtue early inculcated on the minds of…children, and the moral Sense kept alive…For no people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued when knowledge is diffused and Virtue preserved. On the contrary, when People are universally ignorant and debauched…they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign invaders.” (Our Sacred Honor, Bennett, p. 26)

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.” Benjamin Franklin, quoted in Born Liberal Raised Right, p. 15)

 We cannot understand why America is in danger of becoming a modern Sodom and Gomorrah or why Edward Schlosser and other Liberal professors are terrified of their liberal Frankenstein-students unless we return to the Biblical view of man:

“….the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insight we have into the nature of man and of the crisis we find ourselves in…” (intellectual conservative John Hallowell, The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George Nash, p. 53)

No concept gives “deeper insight into the enigma that is man” than original sin. Evil is not just a “bad dream,” warned Richard Weaver, author of “Ideas Have Consequences.” Evil is not “an accident of history,” or the “creation of a few antisocial men.” It is a “subtle, protean force,” and original sin is a “parabolical expression” of this “immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing.” (ibid)

In the process of his 50 year study of the calamitous Russian Revolution Solzhenitsyn read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and contributed eight volumes toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval:

" But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous Revolution that swallowed up some sixty million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: "Men have forgotten God, that's why this has happened."  

The irony underlying the growing fear of liberal professors and the utterly depraved “safe spaces” and "triggers" controversy and its’ chilling impact on self-absorbed emotional tyrants (students) is that atheist progressive liberal faculty (supplemented by godless liberal media hyping and amoral entertainment) are responsible for preaching to so-called unenlightened Americans how their so-called “enlightened progressive” views of our Lord, heaven, hell, sin, moral law, immutable truth, history, evolution, scientism, and society are the only ones that count.  But, that which is called humanism, but would be more correctly called irreligious anthropocentrism, said Solzhenitsyn:

"... cannot yield answers to the most essential questions of our life" 

Thus this generation of self-absorbed Frankensteins have come up in a spiritually and morally debauched, sexually perverse, intellectually bankrupt time. They can neither spell nor articulate a coherent thought but they know the “rights” "entitlements" and “privileges” owed them by parents and society and claim abuse of their autonomy whenever their will is thwarted or their feelings are hurt.

This being so, the growing fears of a group of  whining, self-pitying humanist professors may well be the “rewards” they’re reaping for what they’ve sown.

Little Johnny went to school, there to learn a brand new rule: No Longer Can Boys be Boys

"Exalting mankind to the status of deity....dates from the farthest reaches of antiquity, but its development into an ideology embracing the masses is a characteristic of modernity." (Idols for Destruction, Herbert Schlossberg)

From the days of Adam right down to our own time, the devilish belief that man is god has seduced millions. Early Church Father John of Damascus connects the idea that man is god with barbarism:

"Barbarism is that which prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah. It is called barbarism because of the fact that in those times men had no ruling authority or mutual accord, but every man was independent and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will." (John of Damascus, "The Fount of Knowledge," cited in Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 131)

In this light it can be seen that the paramount religion of mankind is idolatry and/or self-worship...of man as god, the sovereign truth and morals inventor (moral relativist), the god-man with power over life, being, and death who determines what man is or is not, who can live and who must die, as well as how much of anything another person may or may not have. Tal Brooke concurs, noting that historically there has always been a popular religion (an exoteric polytheism-pantheism) for the general masses and a Mystery Religion (high level esoteric "advaitic" monism) for aspiring god-men--- higher initiates, adepts, gurus, super apostles, god-men, and illuminati. For the latter group:

".... the Great Lie (is) the foundation stone of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sufism, Jainism, Sikhism, Taoism, the Kabala, the Greek Hermetic, Eleusinian and Gnostic beliefs, Neo-Platonism, all the occult creeds from Theosophy and the Masonic orders to the Rosicrucian's (and) the New Age movement. The Great Lie is...the belief that man is God, that his true identity is the immortal self...that as God, he will never die (and) Sin and depravity are...illusions since this inner divinity is at man's core." (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, SCP Journal, Vol. 29:2-29:3, 2005)

The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylon as the post-flood center of both an organized popular nature and mystery religion based on the primordial heresy and as the first utopian or heaven on earth project. Babylon embraced the Great Lie. Its inhabitants claimed the title, "I AM." They were earmarked by their "advaitic monism," science of evolutionary magic-transformism, exalted priesthood, androgyny, gnosis, secret initiations, sorcery, astrology, channeling, psychic-powers, familiar spirits, and hedonism. But the root source of this evil religion and its occult power was the Great Dragon himself....the Evil One. 

Modern Barbarian God-Men

In his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy," Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) notes that the two recurring themes of modern ideologies are monism (all that exists is the evolving cosmos of matter and energy) and evolutionary conceptions. Man as god is at the root of these two themes, thus there is:

" defiance of God, pride unlimited, a yearning for enormous power and the assumption of divine attributes with a view to manipulating and shaping mankind's fate." (p. 227)

The first order of business in taking control so as to manipulate and shape mankind's fate is the murder of the Holy God Who spoke into existence ex nihilo all things seen and unseen and the reduction of His Revealed Word to prescientific myth.  Next, in order for god-men to create a new world and re-engineer a new man the present two-dimension (supernatural and natural) order of creation must be scientifically obliterated and reinterpreted as only one dimensional pagan monism under man's control. 

The engines of control are scientism, the instrument of man's will to power, and anti-supernatural, anti-creation evolutionary science, primarily Darwinism.   As the pillar of natural science, Darwinism is powerful magic wielded by a cult religion's sorcerers:

"(Darwinism is) nothing but a kind of cult, a cult religion....It has no scientific validity whatsoever. Darwin's so-called theory of evolution is based on absurdly irrational propositions, which did not come from scientific observations, but were artificially introduced from the outside, for political-ideological reasons." (Jonathan Tennenbaum, "Towards 'A New Science of Life,' Executive Intelligence Review, Vol. 28, No. 34, Sept. 7, 2001)

  Darwinism is a 'universal acid'  from hell in which God the Father Almighty and His entire order of being are in process of conceptual dissolution, a diabolical conjuration allowing god-men to conceptually dismantle:

" human individuality through the dissolution of individual conscience and consciousness, and then to replace these with the collectivity (monism) and coalesced consciousness (i.e., Christ Consciousness)." (Molnar, 227, emphasis added)

God-men Remake Mankind as Grotesque Androgynous Bio-Machines

"Instead of Adam, our ancestry is traced to the most grotesque of creatures; thought is phosphorous; the soul complex nerves, and our moral sense a secretion of sugar." (Disraeli, quoted by John Passmore "A Hundred Years of Philosophy," p. 36)

With the triumph of natural science and Darwinism in the nineteenth century, the murder of the Holy Trinity and the obliteration of His order was cast as "fact" in the cement of "enlightened" magic-science.   Henceforth,   Westerners would be cut off from God the Father and their own souls, thereby disrupting:

"the bio-psycho-spiritual unity of human consciousness...." (Authenticating the Activities of Jesus, Bruce Chilton and Craig A. Evans, 1999)

The modern secular-pagan "scientistic" West has almost succeeded in obliterating the souls of its' citizens and now seeks obliteration of the two sexes:

"Little Johnny went to school; There to learn a brand new rule; No longer could the boys be boys or have their special trucks and toys; Only six, so young and tender, It's time for him to unlearn gender." (Here At School the Slant is Gay, cited in Our Gay Pride President, David A. Noebel)

When boys are no longer boys and girls are no longer girls,

"...only then will men and women be socially interchangeable and really equal.  And when that happens there will no longer be any need for gender at all."  (Judith Lorber cited by Dr. Peter Jones, Capturing the Pagan Mind, p.47)

Unlearning gender requires destruction of innocence via the brutal rape of mind, soul and eventually body.   Assisting in this evil are depraved barbarians completely lacking in moral or ethical standards and unmoved by the most obscene depravity except to enjoy perpetrating it:

"Parents in Florida were outraged upon seeing and hearing what their children were being taught in their 6th grade sexual education class.  Pornography being shoved down the throats of American 11 and 12 year olds. Check these pictures taken by one of the kids:  http://conservativepost.com/parents-outraged-check-what-happened-during-a-health-class-on-sex/

For our generation of lawless reprobate god-men (barbarians) there is no Moral Law, no immutable Truth, no sin, no created sexes, and no fear of judgment and hell.   Thus they are free to be evil, to rape the minds of children, to destroy their innocence, unmake their gender and commit other hideous acts of evil since there is only sovereign, willful, and utterly depraved 'self' who knows only personal selfishness, ambition, physical lust, contempt and hate.

The Men of Sodom Declare War on the Body of Christ

According to New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, church leaders must be made “to take homosexuality off the sin list.” (Christians ‘Must Be Made’ to Bow, Rod Dreher, The American Conservative, Apr. 4, 2015)

At the imperious demand of sin hardened idolatrous men, the body of Christ (Eph. 2: 19-22) must be made to reject the Revelation of God, His created order, immutable Truth, and Moral Laws, all of which the Apostles of Christ, the Fathers of the Church, and virtually every faithful Christian has affirmed as true. But now faithful Christians are to be forced by the idolatrous usurpers of the throne of our Lord to change His Revealed Word, thus changing what we faithfully affirm.

And just how do Bruni and his militant Social Justice Warriors plan to force us to repudiate our beliefs?

" We are going to find out. Indiana and Arkansas showed that most Americans don’t much care about religious liberty — and in fact, people like Bruni and the newspaper he works for have contempt for it, at least when it is practiced by “conservative Christians.”  (Dreher)

The declaration of war against the body of Christ is about far more than just love, happiness and marriage rights.  It is really about the disintegration of man’s dignity as the spiritual image bearer of the Holy Triune God.  This insidious process was begun during the Enlightenment when neo-pagan and mystical pantheist Deists and fellow free-thinkers elevated ‘reason,’ science, and mechanistic laws of nature above the One God in three Persons, thereby taking the Holy Trinity away and depersonalizing and reducing man to an emergent product of the evolving universe of matter and energy:

"....you took God away from them (and) your espousal of an absence of self is the most unique and fearsome claim you made...You turned from Hinduism because it said there was an essential self, which they called the atman." (Jesus to Buddha in The Lotus and the Cross: Jesus Talks with Buddha, Ravi Zacharias, pp.59, 67)

Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if all that exists is matter and energy then the human self cannot exist either:

"Therefore, he deconstructed the Hindu idea of the soul. When one starts peeling the onion skin of one's psyche, he discovers that there is no solid core at the center of one's being. Your sense of self is an illusion. Reality is nonself (anatman). You don't exist. Liberation, the Buddha taught, is realizing the unreality of your existence." (The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, p. 6)

If all that exists is matter and energy then it logically follows that there is no source for life, consciousness (reason, conscience and will), the two sexes, human dignity and worth, or for that matter the much bragged about "reason of free-thinkers."  Without the Holy Trinity, meaning drains into meaninglessness and man is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before the stupidity and depravity of Enlightenment neo-pagans, pantheists and fellow travelers paved the way for the West and then America to plunge into the abyss. 

Henceforth, man is no longer a person, nor is he or she either male or female but rather a dehumanized sexless aggregate of matter or psychic energy in motion while the powers and abilities of his mind are nothing more than energies and chemicals acting on grey matter. In short, within the closed-system of "new" paganism and mystical pantheism, man is nothing but an evolved hominid or bio-machine, a conscious product of energy acting on matter over millions of years, a process called evolution.

The disintegration of man’s dignity as a creature of the Holy God of creation is not the result of science, as Western pagan and pantheist evolution worshippers falsely claim, but rather the product of a depraved (seared) conscience and will turned toward evil that justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of freedom. It is hostility toward and outright hatred of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit and His image-bearers disguised behind linguistic sophistry.

Androgyny: The Pagan Ideal

Following hard on the heels of the disintegration of man's dignity is the rapid loss of male and female distinctions as they quickly drain away into androgyny.  This in its' turnnecessitates the recasting of marriage, family, Scripture, orthodox Christianity and the use of toddlers, older children and even babies for the sexual satisfaction of depraved pan-sexual and omni-gendered adults.   This hideous evil will not only be tolerated and prized, but as the pagan sage Xenophon declared,

"I must now speak of pederasty, for it affects education." (The One and the Many, Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 73)

Writing during the student revolution of the 1960s, Francis Schaeffer already saw that a transformation of consciousness---meaning God Almighty was delivering hardened sinners and God-haters over to worthless, useless, hardened, loveless minds (Ro. 1:28-32)---was overtaking the Western mindset, moving it inevitably away from the Christian ideal to the depraved pagan model:

"Some forms of homosexuality today...are a philosophic expression...a denial of the antithesis. It has led in this case to an obliteration of the distinction between man and woman. So the male and the female as complimentary partners are finished." (The God of Sex: How Spirituality Defines Your Sexuality, Dr. Peter Jones, pp. 78-79)

With the Holy Triune God dead in their hearts, then so too are the fall, sin, immutable truth, universal moral absolutes, heaven, hell, judgment and the entire structure of morally grounded presuppositions, norms, standards, principles, law, sexual ethics, social institutions and society built thereon.   In the resulting void, everything—no matter how evil– is now possible (Psalm 36: 1-4).  

In an article entitled, "Hundred Years of Pedophilia," Olavo de Carvalho warns of evils just over our horizon:

"In Greece and in the Roman Empire, the use of minors for the sexual satisfaction of adults was a tolerated and even prized costume.(sic) In China, castrating young boys to sell them to rich pederasts was legitimate commerce during millennia. In the Islamic world, the rigid morals that ordain the relationships between men and women was not rarely compensated by the tolerance with homosexual pedophilia. In some countries this lasted all least until the beginning of the 20th century, making Algeria, for example, a garden of delights for depraved travelers (read the memoirs of André Gide, "Si le grain ne meurt"). ....In all the places where the practice of pedophilia receded, it was the influence of Christianism — practically alone — that freed the children from this awful rule. .....But this had a price. It is as if an undercurrent of hate and resentment had gone through two millennia of history, waiting for the moment of revenge. This moment has arrived."  (olavodecarvalho.org)

And these are the crimes against nature said Augustine,

"(which are the) crimes of the men of Sodom (and if) all nations in the world committed them they would all stand guilty of the same crime against the Law of God, which did not design men so that they should use each other this way." (Confessions of St. Augustine, p. 49)

"Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah---from the Lord out of the heavens.  Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities---and also the vegetation in the land."  Gen. 19: 24-25

Though dark days have come upon us do not fret because of evil-doers, for they will be cut off, while those who wait for the Lord will inherit eternal life in paradise:

"Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more; And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there. But the humble will inherit the land And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity." (Psalm 37:9-11)

The 20th Century: Beginning of the Aeon of Horus, Reign of God-Men, and End of the Christian God

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites...We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end... The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?”   O’Brien, in 1984, by George Orwell

The symbol of the Party or Big Brother is the pagan magician, a demonized man-god who has acquired powerful psychic powers and gnosis through actualization of the cosmic World Soul within his own brain.  Thus he creates his own world and meaning in every living moment out of his own divine consciousness.   In other words, since the substance of God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos 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 tyrannical 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." ("The New Spirituality and its Hallmarks, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 30:4-31:1, 2007, p. 19)

God-men are legion today. They have successfully initiated a devastating assault upon the whole body of the Christian church and by extension, upon Western and American society in ways that to previous generations would have seemed unthinkable.      A few examples of Western and Eastern god-men are Auguste Comte, Nietzsche, Karl Marx, sundry Indian god-men (i.e., Rajneesh. Muktananda, Sri Chinmoy), Teilhard de Chardin,  L. Ron Hubbard and Aleisiter Crowley .  Each god-man either established a natural religion of scientism (Comte), scientific Communism (Marx), scientific and evolutionary "New Christianity" (Teilhard) or powerful cults that have drawn and continue to draw souls to their doom since each demonized god-man is a harvester of souls for the kingdom of the Evil One.  

Aleister Crowley: Founder of Thelema

Thelema is an Eastern influenced occult spiritual philosophy of pantheist monism developed by Crowley,  a 20th century British writer, ceremonial magician and Satanist.  Pantheist monism asserts the divine-human link:

 "All is ultimately One.  This doctrine is fundamental to mysticism, both eastern and western.  God, man, and the universe are fundamentally one.  The Creator-creature distinction, so crucial to orthodox Judaism and Christianity, is specifically denied.  The so-called 'spark of divinity' in each man supposedly leads all men back into oneness with God (the Universal Force)....The body, the mind, the soul are one within the physical forces...In each entity there is that portion which is a part of the Universal Force...God is impersonal; only man is truly personal.  This is (a) central theme of monist systems.  Man is the personal agent of the impersonal God."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 207)  
 
Within the system of pagan and pantheist monism, God is an evolutionary Force or Energy to be managed, a power to be tapped by initiates and enlightened god-men.  This impersonal Force that supposedly drives the universe's evolutionary destiny was referred to centuries ago in the European magical tradition as the divine Mens, or Mind.  It was cosmic in scope and through careful study and practice (occult or magic science) the magician could control and channel its' power.   The ultimate goal was to acquire powerful psychic powers and gnosis through recreation or actualization of the cosmic Mens within the human mind. (1)
 
In the main, Thelema is based upon a spiritual encounter that Crowley and his wife had in Egypt in 1904 with a spirit calling itself Aiwass.  According to Crowley, Aiwass contacted him and dictated a text known as The Book of the Law or Liber AL vel Legis, which outlined the principles of Thelema.
 
The Thelemic pantheon focuses primarily on a trinity of horned deities adapted from ancient Egyptian pantheist monism who are the three speakers of The Book of the Law: Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The three speakers predicted that the 20th century would mark the ending of the Christian God and Christian theism and the beginning of the Aeon of Horus, an age of apostasy into pantheist monism, creative destruction, force and fire wrought by demonized god-men and their masses of disciples--- a self-absorbed, destructive generation, the followers of a new ethical code, an anti-morality summed up as, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law."  
 
In "Our Savage God: The Perverse Use of Eastern Thought," R.C. Zaehner, Spalding professor of comparative religion of Oxford, discusses the monistic (collectivist/oneness) goals of Hinduism and Buddhism and how the Satanist Aleister Crowley applied monistic philosophy to his own ends.  Crowley, said Zaehner, belonged to an age-old monistic tradition which saw the Eternal (Supreme Soul, Void, Abyss, Quantum Vacuum) as the ultimate unity in which all opposites were reconciled, including God with man, man with woman, woman with man, good with evil. (2)
 
Zaehner also discusses Crowley's attainment of Buddhist "enlightenment," the results of which were "revised" by his spirit guide "Aiwass."   Having assisted Crowley to go beyond good and evil, Aiwass now taught him indulgence.   Aiwass, Crowley's "Holy Guardian Angel," taught "him that absolute bliss could only be attained by enjoying the good things of this world to the full---riches, power, and above all sex, the earthly counterpart of the transcendent union of the opposite." (ibid)
 
As a result, Crowley partook of tantric kundalini sex-magic rites ostensibly for "spiritual" ends.  His "Ordo Templi Orientalis" (Order of the Oriental Temple or O.T.O.) became a branch of Western Tantra.  Indeed, Crowley seems to have been the principal agent responsible for introducing the perversion of Eastern sex magic to the West.  In a text entitled "Yoga: Immortality and Freedom," the yoga authority and University of Chicago professor Mircea Eliade discusses the amoral orientation of Tantra:
 
"The tantric texts frequently repeat the saying, "By the same acts that cause some men to burn in hell....the yogin gains his eternal salvation."....This...is the foundation stone of the Yoga expounded by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita (XVIII, 17).  "He who has no feeling of egoism, and whose mind is not tainted, even though he kills (all) these people, kills not, is not fettered (by the action)."  "And the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad (V,14, 8) had already said: "One who knows this, although he commits very much evil, consumes it all and becomes clean and pure, ageless and immortal."  (ibid, p. 112) 
 
 In addition to his spirit-guide Aiwass, another important mentor of Crowley's was Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher who declared the death of the Christian God and called himself the Anti-Christ:
 
"The greatest recent event – that 'God is dead,' that the belief in the Christian God has ceased to be believable – is even now beginning to cast its first shadows over Europe; however, few really understood " what has really happened here, "and what must collapse now that this belief has been undermined – all that was built upon it, leaned on it, grew into it; for example, our whole European morality." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 433) 
 
Nietzsche argued for the nonexistence of the Christian God as follows:
 
"I will now disprove the existence of all gods. If there were gods, how could I bear not to be a god? Consequently, there are no gods." (3)
 
Each major book of Nietzsche's is, in a different way, an attack on the Christian God and Christian faith. The central axis of Nietzsche's philosophy is always the same---he is as centered on Jesus Christ as Augustine was, only he centered on Christ as his enemy. 
 
With "Ecce Homo" Nietzsche willingly embraces lies and dark fantasy while in "The Genealogy of Morals" he claims that Biblical morality was invented by the "weak," meaning the Jews and then the Christians, to weaken the strong. Thus sheep convinced wolves to act like sheep, and this is unnatural, argued the Anti-Christ who embraced lies and dark fantasy such as "‘Whoever must be a creator always annihilates’ (4)
 
Creation and destruction are as inseparable to Aiwass as to Nietzsche's spirit guide Zarathustra: the creator must always destroy. Thus it follows that a new world order is always preceded by the destruction of the old, hated order:

"The man who breaks… tables of values, the breaker, the lawbreaker; …he is the creator."(Nietzsche)
 
One of the central ideas taught by Zarathustra is that since ‘self’ is self-evolved then Zarathustra's disciple must take responsibility for who he is, for creating himself and his own laws. The implication of this idea is that the old ‘self’ must be destroyed in order to make way for the new ‘self’:

You must wish to consume yourself in your own flame: how could you wish to become new unless you had first become ashes!’ (Nietzsche)
 
The aftermath of the destruction of "self" is insanity (demonization) followed by possession. This is experienced by power yogis when kundalini current finally reaches full voltage with the result that the so-called Soul of the Universe supposedly occupies the body but is in fact an ancient evil spirit residing in the body of the 'god-man:'

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity.  The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)."   Finally it happened---Explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated.  Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels."   "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..."   (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45) 
 
In "Beyond Good and Evil" the Anti-Christ presents his "Master morality," the anti-morality summarized by Crowley as "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." What this means is that since demonized God-hating liars have conceptually "murdered" the Holy Triune God and sealed up heaven, Masters have a natural right to do whatever they please, for everything is permissible. Whatever a Master commands becomes good from the mere fact that the Master wills it:

"Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”   ('Paedophilia is natural and normal for males,' Andrew Gilligan, telegraph.co.uk, Jul 2014)
 
"The Twilight of the Idols" explores the consequences of the murder of the Christian God. With His death is liberation from the supernatural Mind, Authority and Will that has transcended the mind and will of man who is now god and decrees the death of eternally existing Truth, Moral Absolutes, sin and agape love. With the murder of the Triune God, there will no longer be a heaven for the sheep since all of these "idols" will die now that loveless men have murdered the Holy God the Father Almighty.
 
Who will replace the murdered Triune God? The demonized Superman, the new Master of the Universe. Nietzsche's masterpiece, "Thus Spake Zarathustra," celebrates this new god. Nietzsche called Zarathustra the new anti-Gospel and told the world to "throw away all other books; you have my Zarathustra."
 
Among contemporary intelligentsia and global 'god-men' (trans-humanists and practitioners of the Magic Way) intent upon ushering in a worldwide Scientific Dictatorship, a sustainable green pagan heaven on earth created by Masters for Masters, two of the most widely-read and acclaimed thinkers today are the sadistic murderer, the Marquis de Sade, and Friedrich Nietzsche, the Anti-Christ. Many twentieth century totalitarians were disciples of Nietzsche, including America's green Progressive Left and Hitler.
 
In "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," William Shirer recounts Hitler's frequent sojourns to the Nietzsche museum in Weimar. Commenting on Hitler's veneration for Nietzsche, Shirer writes:
 
"There was some ground for this appropriation of Nietzsche as one of the originators of the Nazi Weltanschauung. Had not the philosopher thundered against democracy and parliaments, preached the will to power, praised war and proclaimed the coming of the master race and the superman--and in the most telling aphorisms? (Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, 1959)
 
Though Nietzsche harshly criticized socialism, his evolutionary thinking and monist (collectivist) political and social thoughts also harmonized well with Marxism.
 
In "Nietzsche: A Precursor to Hitler?" researcher Phillip D. Collins writes that in addition to the continuity of pagan political and social thought that pervaded totalitarian socialism, Nietzsche also provided a religious component. The infamous declaration, "God is dead," is but a segue for the introduction of a new Babylonian god merged with mystical Eastern pantheism. This god of evolutionary forces has had, and continues to have, numerous manifestations, as is evidenced by the following delineation by W. Warren Wagar:
 
"Nineteenth-and early twentieth-century thought teems with time-bound emergent deities. Scores of thinkers preached some sort of faith in what is potential in time, in place of the traditional Christian and mystical faith in a power outside of time. Hegel's Weltgeist, Comte's Humanite, Spencer's organismic humanity inevitably improving itself by the laws of evolution, Nietzsche's doctrine of superhumanity, the conception of a finite God given currency by J.S. Mill, Hastings Rashdall, and William James, the vitalism of Bergson and Shaw, the emergent evolutionism of Samuel Alexander and Lloyd Morgan, the theories of divine immanence in the liberal movement in Protestant theology, and du Nouy's telefinalism--all are exhibits in evidence of the influence chiefly of evolutionary thinking, both before and after Darwin, in Western intellectual history. The faith of progress itself--especially the idea of progress as built into the evolutionary scheme of things--is in every way the psychological equivalent of religion. (Wagar, 106 -07)"
 
Nietzsche's self-evolved Superman was but one more link in an ideational chain connecting  Luciferian revolutionaries such as Hegel, Comte, Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Crowley, and contemporary New World Order Masters of the Universe. The central theme is a green religious faith in humanity's evolutionary ascent towards godhood. Collins writes that this is by no means new:
 
"This doctrine of transformism dates back nearly 6,000 years, finding its crucible in Mesopotamia. It was the religious doctrine promulgated by the ancient Babylonian and Egyptian Mystery cults."

Masonic scholar W.L. Wilmshurst verifies this contention:
 
"This--the evolution of man into superman--was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries" (Wilmshurst, W.L. The Meaning of Masonry. New York: Gramercy, 1980)
 
Nietzsche's Superman represents the pinnacle of biological and spiritual evolution. At the apex of the anti-creation, anti-human evolutionary process, Superman would "overcome" his own fleshly humanity---his mortality, his conscience, human weaknesses and limitations. Just as this post-human condition represented godhood for ancient Mystery Religion initiates, so it represents godhood for Nietzsche, Hitler, Crowley, inner circle Masons, contemporary Transhumanists, Spiritual Transhumanists, occult New Agers and their apostate New Christian counterparts who are even now rewriting the Bible so it will reflect evolutionary and pagan thinking.
 
Inherent in this ancient anti-creation, anti-human belief are Nietzsche's Western pagan, Eastern pantheist, and neo-Gnostic teachings that the fall of soul into the material realm was either inexplicable or explained as punishment. At any rate it was a plunge from being as one with or an aspect of the Divine Substance into the material realm of distinctions, or binary. The Fall then is not into sin as a result of disobedience but rather into matter. Salvation means either reabsorption into the Divine Substance or attainment of godhood by way of an evolutionary process controlled by illumined adepts.
 
Nietzsche's version of gnosis resulting from his mystical encounter with Zarathustra, as with Crowley, is the demonic "transvaluation of values" and the enthronement of divinized-self as the final anti-Christ, anti-moral, anti-tradition, authority while earth becomes the divine kingdom of the totalitarian demonized Masters of the Universe.
 
In a larger context, this means that the absolute freedom (license) increasingly exercised by contemporary Western and American god-men and their masses of followers in the name of scientism, evolution, moral relativism, absolute equality, open-minded tolerance and man-made rights (i.e., "gay" marriage, pedophilia) is actually the destructive license which perverts the true meaning and purpose of morally-principled freedom. Absolute freedom enslaves god-men and their followers to their dark side, or sin nature, thus leading them into the anarchy of concupiscence and self-gratification issuing in hate, paranoia, violence, and murder.
 
The 19th century apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky foresaw the devastating consequences of absolute freedom that would usher in planetary spiritual socialism during the age of demonized god-men.
 
Out of the surfeit of arrogant conceit, self-indulgence, violence, hate, envy and murder exacerbated by blasphemy and unbelief said Dostoevsky, will emerge a new man, a miserable man anxious to be saved from himself and the madness of others, hence ready to surrender his absolute freedom for safety, earthly bread, peace, a soothed conscience and a modicum of comfort derived from sin sanctified by his Masters. (Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 179)
 
Demonized god-men and their followers will progress from the tyranny of sin and evil spirits to the tyranny of the Anti-Christ, the psychopath par excellence, for out of the shattered,
 
"... spiritual and social order emerges the new ethic of absolute submission to absolute power." (ibid)
 
And so begins the final chapter of man during the terrible reign of demonized god-men.

The Real Horror of Evolutionary Naturalism

It is now common for men and women who support traditional marriage to be accused of and punished for harboring an animus or hatred of  homosexuals---sexually disordered males and females who perceive themselves as two-in-ones (androgynes).

This issue is about far more than just love, happiness and marriage rights.  It is really about the disintegration of man’s dignity as the spiritual image bearer of the Holy Triune God.  This insidious process began during the Enlightenment when Deists and fellow thinkers elevated ‘reason,’ science, and mechanistic laws of nature above the Holy Triune Creator of everything seen (matter) and unseen (energy, laws, spirit) thereby reducing man to a product of nature.

Supernatural Christianity Versus Pagan and Pantheist Naturalism

In the broadest categories, the raging conflict of our day is supernatural theism versus pagan and pantheist naturalism.  Theism is the belief that there is a supernatural Triune God who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo.   Naturalism is the belief that natural causes alone, perhaps aided by a deist god or a divine force within nature (a man-centered universe) are sufficient to explain everything that exists.  The most fundamental questions of our time reflect one or the other of these two categories:  Is ultimate reality the supernatural Triune God or the man-centered cosmos?  Is there a supernatural realm or is the man-centered universe honey-combed with alternative universes and astral planes all that exists?  Has the personal Triune God spoken and revealed His Truth to us or is truth something we invent for ourselves?  Is there an ultimate purpose to our lives, or are we emergent products of cosmic star-stuff?  (How Now Shall We Live? Charles Colson and Nancy Pearcey, pp. 20-21)

In its broadest sense, naturalism can include Epicurean Atomism (materialism) and occult mystical pantheism bespeaking ghosts, transcended masters, space brothers, council of nine and myriad unseen intelligences.   In every permutation, however, naturalism results in relativism because if all that exists is a man-centered cosmos then there is no transcendent source of unchanging truth and moral law.  By contrast, orthodox Christianity affirms a personal, supernatural Triune God who has spoken and revealed an absolute and unchanging standard of right and wrong based ultimately on His own holy character.

Created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons, the human person is individually unique, rational, the subject of moral agency, and within the context of his humanity, a sub-creator, meaning man creates from what God has provided. Accordingly, the human person possesses innate value and dignity that in turn implies certain unalienable (God given) rights and moral duties both for himself and other persons. These evident truths about the dignity of the human person are known through Revelation, but are also discernible through intellect and conscience.

With the supernatural Holy Trinity displaced by nature, man is no longer a living soul created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons, meaning he is no longer a person nor either  male or female, but rather a dehumanized sexless aggregate of matter in motion while the powers and abilities of his mind (spirit) are nothing more than energies acting on grey matter, that is, chemical interactions and the firing of synapses. In short, man is nothing but an evolved hominid or bio-machine, a conscious product of energy acting on matter over millions of years, a process called evolution.

The disintegration of man’s dignity as a creature of God is not the result of science, as evolutionary naturalists falsely claim, but rather the product of a depraved conscience that justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of freedom. It is hostility and outright hatred of the Holy God and His image-bearers disguised behind linguistic sophistry, the Orwellian-speak of rebellious, God-haters.

With God out of the picture, then so too are the fall, sin, immutable truth, universal moral absolutes, the two created sexes (male and female) and the entire structure of morally grounded presuppositions, norms, standards, principles, law, sexual ethics, social institutions and society built thereon.    In the resulting void, everything—no matter how depraved– is now possible:

"Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated. The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit; he has ceased to act wisely and do good. He plots trouble while on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not reject evil." Psalm 36: 1-4 ESV

Long before Nietzsche announced that with the death of God an inversion of the West’s biblically-based moral foundations would be the result, the thoroughly evil Marquis de Sade, a murderer whose name is synonymous with sadism, had already arrived at that conclusion.   Thus he brazenly defended his bestiality, sodomy, sadism, and murder as moral, and redefined both God and Biblical morality as truly evil.

Building off of this foundation, he denied any need for limitations on the appetites of beast-men. Whatever they saw and desired was absolutely permissible. Consistent with his logic was the repudiation of the idea of crime, which de Sade regarded as an imposition on beast-man’s freedom.   According to de Sade, the criminal—the murderer, rapist, sodomite, pedophile, thief, terrorist, ISIS, etc.— is the truly free man.

In short, within the worldview of evolutionary naturalism, all appetites, no matter how sick, twisted and murderous, are normative and ideal, but when the Bible declares these to be fallen and depraved, it is abnormal and evil.  Hence evil is good, and entirely permissible, while dissent against evil is itself evil:

"The Little Black Book - Queer in the 21st Century," an extremely depraved and disgusting "how-to" booklet "was distributed to hundreds of kids (middle school age and up) at Brookline High School, Brookline, MA, on April 30, 2005. It was written by the Boston-based AIDS Action Committee, with help  from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Boston Public Health Commission. The event that day was designed for children and their teachers across Massachusetts, organized by the "Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network" (GLSEN).  This is the group that runs "Gay-Straight Alliance" clubs in public schools across the country. You must ask yourself: What kind of person would write this? What kind of person would give it to kids?"  (massresistance.org) 

"The US State Department under Hillary has already been funding homosexual groups in foreign countries with US tax dollars.....Hillary has also used American tax dollars to fund homosexual groups and events in Slovakia, Russia, China, Honduras, Uganda, Malawi, Turkey, Pakistan, and others.  In Pakistan, the US State Department held a homosexual pride rally at the US embassy in Islamabad.  The event prompted anti-US riots....Quietly, Obama and Hillary have been granting homosexuals "refugee status" to come to the United States.  This includes homosexuals with HIV/AIDS.  All of this has been done quietly, with very little media coverage.  However, Obama has now declared it official policy."  (Obama orders US State Department to Fund Homosexual Groups Overseas, Kyle Rogers, examiner.com, Dec. 6, 2011)

De Sade was a thoroughly evil man who absolutely refused to consider his perverse ideas and evil actions as in any way wrong. He was an intellectually and morally evil man who maliciously whipped up moral outrage against God and His Law and relished his self-appointed role as His accuser.

According to de Sade’s twisted reasoning, all evil---abortion, pornography, incest, pedophilia, sodomy, bestiality, rape, lying, thievery, thuggery, vandalism, violence, murder, genocide, and the subversion and perversion of children---is entirely justified by evolutionary naturalism, which has freed man from God and His Law.

The real horror of this worldview is its positive declaration of a “new” inverted-morality which we commonly think of as political correctness with its two overriding absolutes – “tolerance” and “inclusion.” Thus today the brazenly, shamelessly perverse claim of  the “politically correct”  wicked to the amoral high ground where declare the 'virtue' of vice while pointing accusing fingers at Biblical ethics and faithful Christians who hold fast to them.

De Sade was the forerunner of all contemporary evolutionary naturalists who today demand total freedom for everything except Christian theism, decency, truth and virtue, a policy now well-entrenched in the American psyche, and as a consequence, in schools, universities, unions, courts, legislators, city halls, statehouses, Hollywood, the music industry, and even seminaries and pulpits.

In the burned out areas known today as the post-Christian West and America, self-worshipping conscious products of evolution hold the pseudo- moral ‘high’ ground from whence they terrorize Christian bakers and home-schoolers while demonizing all decent, law-abiding  men and women as haters, heterosexists, homophobes, racists, fascists, bigots and mentally-insane anti-science fundamentalists. (Isaiah 59:15)

Predictably, the day will arrive— and perhaps more quickly than we realize—when being a faithful orthodox Christian or Jew  is to be a criminal, as is the case in Iraq:

"We are hated because we persist in wanting to exist as Christians. In other words, we are hated because we persist in demanding a basic human right.....During the past year, more than 125,000 Christians have been forced to flee from their villages only because they chose to remain Christians and refused the conditions ISIS imposed on them. They had to leave at night, under the cover of darkness. Many of them trod their own path of Golgotha for long hours, having left everything behind, other than their bare clothes....Too many families have lost confidence in their homeland. This should not surprise anyone. The homeland of Christians has rejected them and thrown them up."    (Iraqi bishop: 'We are hated because we persist in wanting to exist as Christians,' Archbishop Bashar Warda, churchinneed.org, February 17, 2015) 

This will become our ‘new’ reality because contemporary naturalists are just now arriving at the more consistent worldview of de Sade and proactively imprinting it upon our culture, with special emphasis upon our children. De Sade’s evil worldview is coming to fullness within Western and American culture. It is a part of our educational system, our laws, politics, courts, the arts, and entertainment.

We cannot stop this evil worldview merely by opposing it. The worldview that justifies evil and demands the right to debase, pollute, depersonalize, kill and enslave must be opposed by its sole antithesis, the supernatural Biblical worldview.

The modern faith in man-as-god, the supremacy of his base urges, salvation through science and the myth of evolutionary progress must be countered with the supernatural God the Father Almighty as the Sovereign dispenser of law and grace. The naturalistic worldview is consistently meaningless, evil and suicidal and pulls its followers down into the void. The gospel of Jesus Christ however, opens up a supernatural worldview that offers ultimate meaning, hope, and purpose.

Fundamentally, there are only two choices before all men: hope or despair, the Kingdom of God or the kingdom of bestial man, eternal life in Paradise or an eternity in outer darkness.

Madness Enforced by Tyranny in America's Emerging New World Order

On January 29, students attending Acalanes Union High School in Lafayette, Calif., reported that members of the Queer Straight Alliance (QSA) were allowed to take over all freshmen English classes in order to grill students about their personal beliefs and their parents’ personal beliefs on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues:

"...freshmen students were reportedly singled out---with tacit support of teachers---and humiliated if they didn't subscribe to politically correct views on gay and lesbian issues." (Report: Bay Area High School Let 'Queer Straight Alliance' Bully Students, Chriss Street, breitbart.com, Feb. 5, 2015)

For many years now MassResistance has been trying to warn Americans that the "gay" movement, backed by Obama and other treacherous power-hungry narcissists, is fighting  hard for “transgender rights” and “gender identity non-discrimination” laws because these laws are the entré  to fundamentally transforming society into a God-less, androgynous collective. Once these laws are in place,  we will no longer be allowed to distinguish between male and female, nor will parents be allowed to protect their children against ‘otherly-gendered’ sexual predators or even themselves from aggressive sexual advances.  (Lawsuit forces Boston Police Dept. to implement outrageous  transgender policy regarding arrests & searches, Massresistance.org)

Perversion induced madness enforced by tyranny results when some individuals try to force their disorders (compulsions, appetites, paranoia, greed, resentment, hate, envy) onto other people.  In the former Soviet Union where resentment-fueled perversion became the "new" norm, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, transgender and lesbianism were forced upon Eastern-Orthodox Russia by depraved Soviet sexologists:

 “Soviet sexologists in the 1920s participated in the international movement for sexual reform…a pamphlet titled 'The Sexual Revolution in Russia'…stated: Soviet legislation bases itself on the following principle: it declares the absolute non-interference of the State and society into sexual matters as long as nobody is injured, and no one’s interests are encroached upon. Concerning homosexuality, sodomy, and various other forms of sexual gratification, which are set down in European legislation as offenses against public morality---Soviet legislation treats these the same as so-called “natural” intercourse.” (Soviet Union in the 1920s: Scientific, not Utopian, pride series, workers.org)

"The Bolshevik Party did not merely scrap anti-homosexual tsarist laws. Sexologist Wilhelm Reich, in "The Sexual Revolution," described the intent of the Bolsheviks' political position. They felt it was necessary to tear down the walls that divided homosexuals--also known in Russia as "people of the moonlight--from the rest of society." (People of the Moonlight in the Dawn of Revolution, Leslie Feinberg, lesbian, gay, bi and trans pride series workers.org)

"The revolutionaries tried to examine sexuality and gender as they did all social and economic relations--through a scientific lens...." "Soviet Russia was by far the most significant power since the French Revolution to decriminalize male same-sex relations, while Britain and Weimar Germany continued to prosecute homosexuals. Soviet health authorities courted the left-leaning sex reform movement headed by Berlin sexologist and homosexual rights campaigner Magnus Hirschfeld."  (ibid)

"In a 1929 discussion about 'transvestites' and the 'intermediate sex' conducted by the Expert Medical Council of the  Commissariat of Health, women of the 'masculinized type' (cross-dressing army commanders, for example) were considered with fascination and indulgence." ("1920s Soviet Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals, Leslie Feinberg, Workers World News Service, Aug. 18, 2004)

The Soviet Union, heralded as a scientifically engineered 'worker's paradise' and by Western and American Progressive Socialists as 'the mother country' was nothing more than a modern day reprisal of Sodom and Gomorrah where the genitally obsessed were seduced by promises of 'free love.' What was 'free love'? In his well-researched expose of Communism, The Naked Communist, author W. Cleon Skousen reveals that 'free love' was made possible when young wives, sisters, daughters, and nieces  were declared the property of the pagan god-state. Anarchists were given control of the sex-slaves and they  issued 'usage' licenses to privileged 'workers.' In other words, females were forcibly dominated and violated and this was called 'free love.' Skousen quotes a Communist official who says:

"There is no such thing as a woman being violated by a man; he who says that a violation is wrong denies the October Communist Revolution. To defend a violated woman is to reveal oneself as a bourgeois and a partisan of private property." (The Naked Communist, Skousen, p. 73)

In the preceding statements, we can clearly see the depraved basis for today’s politically correct notions of hate crime, speech codes, equality, tolerance, inclusion, sensitivity training, emerging genders, alternative lifestyles, prostitute and pedo-chic clothing for females and young girls, and the "politically correct" forced-feeding of polymorphous perversion to American school children enforced by thought and speech control commissars:

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

Natan Sharansky, a dissident in the former Soviet Union describes existence in the former Soviet Union as madness enforced by tyranny where,

“…there were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately.” Under the terrorist-tactics of hate crime laws, speech codes, and other thought-control tactics, everyone became double thinkers. To outside observers notes Sharansky, double thinkers appear as true believers: “everybody says the same thing, everybody votes the same way, everybody speaks with passion.” But this is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth, of discriminating between good and evil, truth and lie, normal and abnormal. These people, he noted, “live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime  demands loyalty right from childhood, many don’t even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves.” But when a “fear society disappears or becomes  weak, people suddenly start saying what they feel,” Sharansky commented, and “It’s such a big relief.”  (The Power of Freedom, The  American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the “town square test.” In this test, if you,

“…can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society” even though that society may not be just. However, if you are “punished for your views you live in a fear society….In such societies there are always three types of population: True believers, who accept the ideology…dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts.."

To get an inkling of what that strait-jacket of madness was like let us imagine that pathologically twisted color-blind people have managed to seize absolute control of our country and have forbidden Americans from judging between the colors yellow and purple.  Terroristic bully-boys or enforcers of "correct color" armed with the force of broken law patrol farmers markets, personal gardens, grocery stores, restaurants and clothing stores enforcing strict adherence to correct color codes while scrutinizing faces for possible signs of politically incorrect ‘thought’  indicative of discrimination or judgment between yellow and purple.  Of course the bully-boys are not color-blind themselves but because they too are pathologically twisted they receive sadistic pleasure from psychologically bullying, terrorizing, physically abusing and dominating other people.

Measured by Sharanskys’ town-square test we can see that America and Western Europe are rapidly descending into a fear-based madhouse where dissent (incorrect thought) against abortion, evolution, any or all of the ‘gay’ agenda, decadence festivals, illegal immigration, the sexualization of our children, the imposition of shariah, and socialistic ‘healthcare’ brings immediate demonization.  You may be heavily fined, declared insane, lose your job, your business, your home and even your children.

"Life has no rules." EST's Werner Erhard

In an address to the 10th Annual Freedom 21 Conference (10/16/09) Tom DeWeese tried to warn Americans that,

“….we are witnessing an all-out drive to impose thought control that seeks to ban the ability — the right — to think or speak for one’s self.  Thinking is becoming a crime.”    (Globally Acceptable Truth and the Crime of Thinking, Tom DeWeese)

A growing danger that a morally depraved, willfully ignorant, entertainment-glutted people will not heed.  Caught up as they are in gratification of ‘self’ they do not care to hear things that disturb them, that make them feel ‘bad’ or guilty:

"None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the rest love not freedom, but license, which never hath more scope than under tyrants." John Milton (1608-1674) English Poet, Scholar, Writer, Patriot

We cannot understand the rapid disintegration of America's humanized Christian Church together with the seething hatred of Jesus Christ, the treachery of our narcissistic power-grabbing ruling class and the pathological lying, obscenity, perversity, blasphemy, lawlessness, the subversion and perversion of youth and other evils so obviously endemic here in America and throughout the West unless we return to the Biblical view of man:

"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insight we have into the nature of man and of the crisis we find ourselves in..." observed Conservative John Hallowell. (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George Nash, p. 53)

No concept gives "deeper insight into the enigma that is man" than original sin. Evil is not just a "bad dream," warned Richard Weaver, author of "Ideas Have Consequences." Evil is not "an accident of history," or the "creation of a few antisocial men." It is a "subtle, protean force," and original sin is a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing," (ibid)   

Man is not born good.  Nor is he or she 'evolving' to some higher, more godlike spiritual state. The ugly truth is that all men are born terrible-willed hedonists, says Dr. Terry G. Shaw:

"To understand...principles of human behavior...we must first begin by accepting (that) all humans are born hedonists (aka narcissists) and have an intrinsic need to seek pleasure, avoid pain, and engage in those activities that best accomplish both with the least amount of effort." (Born Liberal Raised Right, Reb Bradley, p.19)

The architects of our nation were men who did not shy away from the ugly truth about man's Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde nature, which meant that if the American experiment in national self-government was to succeed, then as the Founders strongly advised, all children would need to be trained against their natural self-centered inclinations from birth:

"Since private and public Vices, are in Reality...connected (it is necessary) that the Utmost Pains be taken by the Public, to have the Principle of Virtue early inculcated on the minds of...children, and the moral Sense kept alive...For no people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued when knowledge is diffused and Virtue preserved. On the contrary, when People are universally ignorant and debauched...they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign invaders." (Our Sacred Honor, Bennett, p. 26)

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin, quoted in Born Liberal Raised Right, p. 15)

"The government...can never be in danger of degenerating into a monarchy, an oligarchy, an aristocracy, or any other despotic or oppressive form so long as there shall remain any virtue in the body of the people." George Washington (ibid)

But when people are universally ignorant, corrupt and vicious:

“….they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”   Samuel Adams

And then:

“… dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington

The Progressive Myth: Sociopaths & America's Tyranny of Evil

 Progressive Liberalism's most enduring myth is the delusional and self-refuting multi-faceted notion that though the Triune God is a figment of the imaginations of backwards anti-science Christian fundamentalists and that man is the uncreated product of evolution, he is nevertheless born good but mysteriously, he is somehow the slave of the non-existant Holy Triune God and Western tradition and culture.  If, as the delusion goes, he is liberated from his slavery his innate goodness will fully manifest itself.

In support of this delusion are three others. First, enlightened yet spiritually dead humans and society are evolving (progressing) ever upward toward apotheosis and a communist or socialist paradise on earth.  Second, science, technology, and the divine life-making energy known as evolution have brought  enlightened yet morally depraved humans to the brink of ending all suffering, in particular, death itself. And finally, enlightened moral imbeciles are gaining control over evil.  Reality says otherwise:

"Communism has been tried for more than 100 years by hundreds of millions of people, and the results are always the same: Its fruits are death, destruction, and despair. Its leading figures were cynical and sly men who masked their hatred of humanity with high-sounding words. By any measure, they were as dark and sinister as could be."  (Dead End of Communism, The Epoch Times)

C.E.M Joad, a 20th century philosopher spent most of his life embracing the Progressive myth and loudly proclaiming his distate for the supernatural Triune God.  However, the catastrophic events of the 20th century finally wore down Joad's delusional optimism.

As he witnessed so-called "enlightened" Progressives and like-minded disciples make the same stupid, discouraging and outright evil choices over and over again, commit the same hideous crimes over and over, and rationalize their wickedness over and over again, Joad was forced to conclude that his faith in man was wrong and the Progressive myth rendered utterly implausible by the catastrophic events of the twentieth century.  

Joad concluded that it is because Progressives and their like-minded counterparts rejected,

".... the doctrine of original sin that we on the Left were always being disappointed; disappointed by the refusal of people to be reasonable, by the subservience of intellect to emotion, by the failure of true Socialism to arrive, by the behavior of nations and politicians, by the masses' preference for Hollywood to Shakespeare and for Mr. Sinatra to Beethoven; above all, by the recurrent fact of war."  (The Deadliest Monster, J.F. Baldwin, p. 97)

Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957), renowned English crime writer, poet, playwright, essayist, translator and Christian humanist concurs:

"The people who are most discouraged and made despondent by the barbarity and stupidity of human behavior are those who think highly of homo sapiens....and who still cling to an optimistic belief in the civilizing influence of progress and enlightenment." (ibid, p. 96)

  In 1926, Governor Theodore Christianson of Minnesota established the Minnesota Crime Commission to study crime and evaluate its causes. The commission eventually concluded that criminal tendencies were not the result of poverty, education, or environment, as the Progressive myth claimed. In essence its' findings agreed with Joad's loss of faith in man's innate goodness. It offered the following brutal observation:

"Every baby starts life as a little savage. He is completely selfish and self-centered. He wants what he wants when he wants it: his bottle, his mother's attention, his playmates toys...or whatever. Deny him these and he seethes with rage and aggressiveness which could be murderous were he not so helpless. He's dirty; he has no morals, no knowledge, no developed skills. This means that all children, not just certain children, but all children, are born delinquent. If permitted to continue in their self-centered world of infancy, given free rein to their impulsive actions to satisfy each want, every child would grow up a criminal, a thief, a killer, a rapist."

The completely selfish and self-centered can grow up to be far worse than common thieves.  Their narcissism can become so inflated, their conscience so depraved and hardened and their will so given to evil that the Triune God gives them over to a reprobate mind (Romans 1: 18-28) and  they become psychopaths.

Martha Stout has worked extensively with victims of psychopaths, and describes them as having no feelings of guilt or remorse no matter what they do.  Psychopaths have no,

"...  limiting sense of concern for the well-being of strangers, friends, or--family. Imagine no struggles with shame---no matter what kind of selfish, lazy, harmful, or immoral action (they take)."  The concept of responsibility is unknown to them, "except as a burden others seem to accept---like gullible fools."   They are not held back from any of their "desires by guilt or shame, and... are never confronted by others for (their) cold-bloodedness....(They) are completely free of internal restraints, and...unhampered liberty to do just as (they) please, with no pangs of conscience..." (Political Ponerology, Andrew M. Lobaczewski, pp. 10-11)

Psychopathy: What Is It?

John Ray, M.A., Ph.D, summarizes some of the central characteristics of psychopathy as follows:

"He is not obviously 'mad.' he is often highly intelligent; he is unmoved by brutality (except to enjoy perpetrating it); he has no moral or ethical standards; he is deeply (but discreetly) in love with himself (narcissism) so secretly despises others and thinks they are fit only to be dominated and exploited by him and those like him; he is a great manipulator who loves getting others to do his bidding by deception or otherwise; he is the master of the lie and the false pretense but sees no reason to be consistent from occasion to occasion; he will say anything to gain momentary praise or admiration; his only really strongly felt emotions seem to be hate and contempt and he is particularly enraged by those who have what he wants and will be totally unscrupulous in trying to seize what others have for himself.  But above all, the psychopath does not seem to be able to tell right from wrong and, as a result, does sometimes commit or connive at murders and other heinous crimes with what seems to be a clear conscience."   (jonjayray.tripod.com)

Because psychopaths hold other people in contempt and are without remorse they freely manipulate and use their intended victims for purposes of self-gratification. Other common characteristics include:  moral relativism (no absolutes), an overwhelming sense of entitlement, parasitism, psychological and physical bullying, casual cruelty, pleasure at inflicting pain (sadism), insensitivity, dishonesty, pathological lying, aggression, impulsiveness, promiscuity, and irresponsibility .

Omnipotence, in the case of Western "scientific and evolutionary" empowered psychopaths comes from having "scientifically enabled" power over the Holy Trinity and His Revealed Word so as to deprive the Lord of the power of His own spoken Word in order to give their own words the active force of the Triune Gods creative words. In this way, empowered god-men can unweave and refashion creation, reinvent human beings, paganize Scripture, and creatively destroy the family and society as desired.   They can decide who lives and who must die, what we may have or not have, what we are allowed to know and not know and who the Official State Enemies are. This is a psychopaths power trip.   

What drives psychopaths is a ravenous hunger for making other people suffer. Just as normal humans enjoy seeing other people happy and thriving, the psychopath enjoys the opposite.  As their lack of empathy results in blindness to the humanity of their victims this in turn permits victims to be sacrificed without remorse on the altar of narcissism, for with the negation of humanity intended victims are no longer human beings but objects to be used, abused, tormented and discarded at will. This monstrous evil finds expression over and over in the writings of the sexual psychopath, the Marquis de Sade:

"The philosopher sates his appetites without inquiring to know what his enjoyments may cost others, and without remorse." (Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones, p. 26)

Paul Hollander's book "Political Pilgrims: Western Intellectuals in Search of the Good Society" recounts what depraved Leftist intellectuals and apostate priests did for many decades in the Soviet era. To quote one Amazon reviewer:

"Political Pilgrims is the amazing story of how Western intellectuals embraced Marxist tyrants at the very moment their colleagues were rotting in prison cells, and the common people everyone claimed to be concerned for, were starving. The book relates how cultural and religious leaders from the West, including familiar names, visited the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and other communist countries, and told the most appalling lies." (ibid, Ray)

Among well-known psychopaths of the 20th century are  Pol Pot, Hitler, Beatrice Webb, Margaret Sanger, Lenin and Stalin.  Kaganovitch, Stalin's brother-in-law and closest collaborator described Stalin as no longer human:

"Even when he exhibited some emotions, they all did not seem to belong to him. They were as false as the scale on top of armor...He was not human at all..." (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 53)

Milovan Djilas, Communist leader of Yugoslavia, perceptively described the mesmerizing satanic energy emanating from the 'no longer human' Stalin:

"Was it not so that the demonic power and energy of Stalin consisted in this, that he made the (Communist) movement and every person in it pass to a state of confusion and stupefaction, thus creating and ensuring his reign of fear..." (ibid, p. 54)

According to Ray, psychopaths of our own time include the average left-wing academic, George Galloway, Castro, John Kerry, Bill Clinton and  Barack Obama--- prominent members of America's Progressive Ruling Class who,   

"...prays to themselves as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image..." ("The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It" Angelo M. Codevilla p. xix)

For our generation of psychopaths there is no Holy Trinity, no Moral Law, no immutable Truth, no sin, and no fear of judgment and hell.   Thus they are free to be evil: to think evil, speak evil  and commit acts of evil since there is only sovereign willful 'self' who knows only personal selfishness, ambition, physical lust and hate.

A tyranny of evil has spread itself over and across our country like an impenetrable darkness and we cannot understand its' manifestations---its' seething hatred of God, its' treachery, cruelty, sadism, pathological lying, obscenity, perversity, blasphemy, and deliberate corruption of our children unless we return to our Heavenly Father and the Biblical view of man:

"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insight we have into the nature of man and of the crisis we find ourselves in..." (John Hallowell, The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George Nash, p. 53)

Man is not born good, as self-deluded Progressives claim. Nor are man and society 'evolving' to some higher, more godlike spiritual state. This is pure fantasy. 

Evil cuts through the hearts of every man and woman, thus no concept gives "deeper insight into the enigma that is man" than original sin. Evil is not just a "bad dream"  or "an accident of history." Nor is it the "creation of a few antisocial men" but rather a "subtle, protean force," and original sin is a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing." (ibid)

As a people, we have allowed ourselves to forget this---to our own and our children's peril.

To all Americans whose minds are not trapped within narrow, shadowy, corridors of psychic cages as is the sad, tragic case for most Americans, it's obvious that our Constitutional Republic is rapidly breaking apart on rocks of fiat rule, lying, confusion, ignorance, apathy, unconstitutional 'special rights,' group rights, deviance and lawlessness.  Thus it has become commonplace for psychologically manipulated, morally degraded and dumbed-down Americans to call our Constitutional Republic a "democracy" (something the Founders deplored), support the murder of the unborn, cheer-lead for sodomy, hand their children over to be groomed by pedophiles in so-called sex education classes, admit that they do not know what Western Biblical-based civilization is and submit to a dehumanized status as evolved products of evolution.  

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

The metaphor "iron curtain" has been used to describe twentieth century totalitarian pagan states such as the Soviet Union.  Why iron curtain?  Answer: through terror, force, constant fear, treachery, brain-altering drugs, dehumanization via indoctrination with Darwinism, and psychological manipulation and trauma men's minds were narrowly confined within psychic cages. 
 
Whether identified as brainwashing, mind-control, or psycho-politics, thought-control is part of a program of psycho political terrorism utilized by Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, and the Communists after they seized control of Orthodox Christian  Russia and put into practice long-term plans to abolish on a vast cultural scale every vestige of belief in the Biblical God, creation ex nihilo, the traditional family, morality, private property, the West's traditional linear view of history, and other signs of "the capitalist petite Bourgeoisie." By way of various sadistically brutal forms of behavior modification, torture, psychotropic drug experimentation, re-education, and psychological terror tactics, Russians were terrorized into submission while Communists systematically stole their property, confiscated and perverted their children, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests, and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

"About 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union, a Russian commission reported this week. In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the country's mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyed"  Clergymen were crucified on churches' holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled,"said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. The commission prepared the report for Russian President Boris Yeltsin. "I was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter," Yakovlev said. "It was total cruelty." (http://www.paulbogdanor.com/left.html)
 
Natan Sharansky, a dissident in the former Soviet Union describes the "iron curtain" as a tyranny where,

"...there were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately." Under the terrorist-tactics of hate crime laws, speech codes, and other mind-control tactics, everyone became double thinkers. To outside observers notes Sharansky, double thinkers appear as true believers: "everybody says the same thing, everybody votes the same way, everybody speaks with passion." But it is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth. These people, he noted, "live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime demands loyalty right from childhood, many don't even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves." But when a "fear society disappears or becomes weak, people suddenly start saying what they feel," Sharansky commented, and "It's such a big relief."

To determine if a society is fear-based, as America is quickly becoming, Sharansky applies what he defines as the "town square test." In this test if you,

"can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society" even though that society may not be just. However, if you are "punished for your views you live in a fear society,"said Sharansky. "In such societies there are always three types of population: True believers, who accept the ideology...dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts or disagreements about the official ideology but are afraid to express them publicly." In conclusion, Sharansky comments that the level "of dissidence is always a function of how tough the regime is." (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

There are two misconceptions held by most Americans.  The first is that communism ceased to be a threat when the Soviet Union imploded.  The second is that the New Left of the Sixties collapsed and disappeared as well. 

Because the New Left lacked cohesion it fell apart as a political movement.  However, its revolutionaries reorganized themselves into a multitude of single issue groups.  Thus we now have for example, radical feminists, black extremists, anti-war ‘peace' activists, animal rights groups, radical environmentalists, and ‘gay' rights groups.  All of these groups pursue their piece of the radical agenda through a complex network of organizations such as the Gay Straight Lesbian Educators Network (GSLEN), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), People for the American Way, United for Peace and Justice, Planned Parenthood, Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), Code Pink for Peace, open border advocates and liberal 'Christian' groups.   In back of these groups are deep-pocket funders:   http://discoverthenetworks.org/ 

Both communism and the New Left are alive and thriving here in America.  They favor code words: tolerance, social justice, economic justice, peace, reproductive rights, choice, sex education and safe sex, safe schools, inclusion, diversity, 'gay' rights, sustainability, global warming/cooling/change, and sensitivity. 
 
Though America's communist Left (Progressive liberals) publicly describes itself as scientific, evolutionary, forward-thinking, and enlightened,  in reality said ex-red diaper baby David Horowitz, Leftists are,

"...religious fanatics who regard their opponents as sinners and miscreants and agents of civil darkness...when they engage an opponent it is rarely to examine and refute his argument but rather to destroy the bearer of the argument and remove him from the plan of battle." (The Surreal World of the Progressive Left, David Horowitz, FrontPageMagazine.com, 1/25/2008)

Measured by Sharanskys' town-square test we can see that America is quickly descending into a fear-based society. As her freedom-producing Christian-based worldview fades it is simultaneously replaced by an evolutionary cosmogony and spiritually pagan progressive totalitarianism.  The three types of population described by Sharansky also come into focus.  Progressive Liberals and their legion of 'liberalized' disciples are the true believers.   True believers are rabid zealots, brazen liars, and rebels against all authority. They freely destroy, transgress, scoff, demean, blaspheme, demonize, and otherwise psychologically and physically terrorize the large body of fearful double thinkers within and without the whole body of the Christian Church.  Around the outside edge are the dissidents:  truth-warriors who dare speak truth to lies and fight back against and expose forces of darkness.

More than fifty years ago, Conservative poet and journalist Anthony Harrigan foresaw the rise of this generations' destructive true believers. Observing that a 'process of decay' was being fostered by a modernist progressive orthodoxy fueled by immorality, Harrigan presciently noted that:

"Modernists are determined to force acceptance of pornography as medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion...Though the life of the country is basically decent, Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class, having led to destruction the humane elements in our civilization, is conducting us to ruin." For what cause? To raise up a revolutionary army of "liberal-bred" barbarians "motivated by a destructive impulse" and unchecked by "traditional values and restraints." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement of America, George H. Nash, p. 40)

Communism, Socialism and Progressive Fanaticism

 As Fyodor Dostoevsky astutely observed, Communist, Socialist and/or Progressive religious fanaticism is at bottom a reprisal of Nimrod's rebellion---the creature in rebellion against the Creator, His creation, Moral Law, immutable truths, and moral absolutes:
 
 Our war is against the Christian God and the world created by Him, declared Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto. In his poem, "The Pale Maiden" he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:

"Thus heaven I've forfeited; I know it full well; My soul, once true to God; Is chosen for hell." (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 22)

"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority....Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done....Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds." (Mikhail Bakunin, comrade of Marx, ibid, p. 27)

"We do not fight against believers (or) even clergymen....We fight against God to snatch believers from Him." (Vetchernaia Moskva, a Communist newspaper, ibid, p.77)

Most Americans no longer know what Western Biblical-based civilization is, and worse, actively fight against the worldview that nourishes them.   This has two overriding causes:  the deliberate and malicious "dumbing-down" of Americas' education establishment by progressive 'educators' (conditioners) issuing in the sad, tragic capture of the American mind. The mind can be freed, but the work required is hard, lengthy, and challenging.  The road to Truth and liberty begins with the Word of God, then tracks through the following books:
 
1. The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression 
 
2. Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, by Eugene (Fr. Seraphim) Rose           
 
3. Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz
 
4. Cry Havoc! The Great American Bring-down and how it happened, Ralph de Toledano
 
5. The Ruling Class: How they Corrupted America and what we can do about it, Angelo M. Codevilla
 
6. Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand
 
7. The Naked Communist, W. Cleon Skousen
 
8. The Theme is Freedom: Religion, Politics and the American Tradition, M. Stanton Evans
 
9. The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George H. Nash

Modern Liberalism: Theology of Demons and Psychology of the Hell-Bound

For over eighty-five years, America has been incrementally conquered by the same madness-and-murder inducing demon of evil, envy, hatred, paranoia and violence that earlier took over Russia, China, Germany, and Italy. This demon is embodied in American and Western Leftists, progressives and transnational "elites," all of whom are deeply infected by scientific Communism and the delusion that the true enemy of America is always on the Right.  In "Kinder Garden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks," ex-liberal Evan Sayet notes thatthe madness-inducing ideology of the modern liberal leads him to, 

"... invariably and inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right, the lesser over the better, the ugly over the beautiful, the profane over the profound, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success." 

Having rejectedthe Triune God, their own souls and the religious heritage of our civilization, they embrace instead pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary naturalism of which Communism, Socialism and Scientific Technocracy are logical expressions.  A new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the existing Christian-based culture must be completely destroyed and the human soul re-engineered.

 So what is Communism?  Using the former Soviet Union as an example, Frank Meyers describes it as,

"The state form taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world."    Communism or scientific materialism is "the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  It is scientism (evolutionary biology and evolutionary cosmologies) of which, "Communism is the culminating hubris of the Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation.  It is scientism gone political." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

By "materialist faith" Meyers means a revitalized and revamped nature (pagan) religion grounded in monism, the evolving one substance or quantum void consisting of matter and psychic energy.

After more than forty years of struggle to resist a neo-pagan Communist takeover of America by Leftists (also progressives and modern liberals), in his newly released book, "The Black Book of the American Left," David Horowitz reports that nearly every battle has been lost:

"The Black Book of the American Left is first of all a narrative map of the battles fought over the last 40 years and----it must be said---lost, almost every one.  The Black Book contains a record as complete as any likely to be written of the struggle to resist a Communist-inspired Left that was not defeated in the Cold War but took advantage of the Soviet defeat to enter the American mainstream and conquer it, until today its members occupy the White House."   David Horowitz

In a review of Volume II, Barbara Kay describes it as a survey of the wreckage blotting the landscape of “progressivism,” a barrier island to Communism’s landmass:

Here we find the unbroken bridge linking Communism to the received wisdom of the vast majority of academics in the West, who download them into vulnerable students en masse. The Marxist vision that sustained Stalin’s supporters in the 1940s and 1950s is alive and well in the post-colonialist and identity obsessions of postmodern theorists. Utopians then, utopians still, Horowitz finds their vision of social justice is still attended by the same suppression of “incorrect” thought and speech, the same self-righteousness, the same illiberalism in dealing with critics and apostates that were – are – the hallmarks of Communism." 
 
As Leftist ideology bears a deep hatred for the personal Holy Trinity, His creation and the human norm it boils with an unquenchable desire for its annihilation through erasure of Western history and ongoing attempts by way of a forced-feeding of scientism, Darwinism, and sadistic psychological bullying (thought control) to erase the knowledge of the human soul made in the spiritual image of the One God in Three Persons.  It is here that Leftist preference for evil over good can be seen in its effort to make the knowledge that we are the image-bearers of God unknowable through indoctrination with Darwinism,  psychological manipulation and terroristic bullying that ridicules and demeans the six day Genesis account in favor of "scientifically enlightened" God-less Darwinism and exploding Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) conceptions. 

Increasingly, we are ridiculed and shamed if we publicly declare that Jesus Christ God Incarnate, heaven, eternally unchanging truth, moral law and the Biblically-based unalienable (God-given) rights  and enduring principles undergirding our Constitutional Republic are superior to neo-pagan socialism, scientism, evolutionary thinking, Sharia, Wicca, paganism, Satanism, sodomy, lies, death and all other evils because good (the former) is biased against evil (the latter).  That's why we   cannot defendand proclaim the inerrant Word of God, the six day Genesis account, His Moral Law, immutable truth, our souls and our right to life without beingridiculed as anti-evolutionary science and anti-choice (abortion, euthanasia) morons, bigots, racists, homophobes and xenophobes because orthodox Christian faith is the antithesis of evil: 

"Why do you lay these troubles on an already troubled mind? Can you not see, your uncle is wearied by your...malcontent, your warmongering?"   (Grima Wormtongue-- a spiritualy desolate consummate liberal, pathological liar and bully who hides behind his master Saruman---to Eomer, the valiant, virtuous defender of the good, true, righteous and life-affirming)                        

In the stony materialized souls, hard-hearts and darkly disordered minds of Americas' legions of imbecilic progressive Grimas, Orcs, Gollums, and Saruman types,  there wouldn't be any evil if not for the good, thusGrimas situated within every thought-and-moral shaping institution at every level of American society from the White House to the Supreme Court, Congress, academia, the music industry, media, seminaries, pulpits and Hollywood do the work of their father the devil in order to "right" this "wrong."  

As one example of this work,  the liberal 'legal watchdog' group, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, provided the legal muscle this year to get the Satanic Temple,
 
"....prime real estate for its display alongside several others’ at the state capitol’s rotunda." (FL state capital OKs Satanic Christmas display, Michael F. Haverluck, OneNewsNow, December 15, 2014
 
NewsBusters reporter Tianna DeMartino exposes another example of their evil-doing.  In "Reminder to Christians: Seth McFarlane hates you. Merry Christmas!" DeMartino reports that McFarlane, 
 
 "... the liberal atheist behind “Family Guy,” seems to be feeling especially spiteful this Christmas, going above and beyond the usual sacrilege....The fall finale which aired Dec. 7 on Fox, was titled “The 2000 Year-Old Virgin.” In the episode Peter and his wife Lois find Jesus at the mall; still in Quahog because Jesus and His father God don’t get along. Jesus tells Peter he “can’t deal with [His] family during the holiday.” Besides, even if Jesus did get along with God they couldn’t spend the holiday together anyway because “[His] Dad always spends Christmas at his time share … with His girlfriend.” (God appears in a scene on vacation with his scantily clad girlfriend mocking an adult handicapped child whose parents sarcastically thank him for the “test” God gave them.)"  (Family Guy’ Christmas: ‘The 2000 Year-Old Virgin,’ News Busters, December 8, 2014) 

While Christians in the Middle East are daily brutalized, raped, tortured, beheaded and crucified and their children cut in half and beheaded, what are the main concerns of Americas' mainstream media Grimas?  The plight of poor, misunderstood, unfairly treated welfare careerists, sodomites, cop-killers, illegals and lawless elements rampaging through our streets, burning and looting as they go.

 Look around and ask yourselves, "what is most loved and most hated" in liberal controlled and dominated America?  

On the hate list: the Holy Trinity, the inerrant Word of God with particular emphasis on the six day Genesis account, Original Sin, immutable truth and moral law, heaven, hell, judgment. 

On the liberal love list: God-less Darwinism, exploding Cosmic Eggs, and continuous change issuing in nihilism?subjectivism, a license for the following: beheading and vivisecting aborted babies, pathological lying, treachery, criminal behavior, Satanists, murderous jihadis, ISIS, sodomy, lesbianism, transgender, pornography, illegals, Baphomet, the Satanic Temple, cop-killers, God-hating mass-murderers like Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin, and unending death for our Constitutional Republic and nonhumans and plague species:

  1."Saying homo sapiens are a 'plague species,' the London Zoo opened a new exhibit featuring--eight humans.  We have set up this exhibit to highlight the spread of man as a plague species and to communicate the importance of man's place in the planet's ecosystem."  (Human Beings: Plague Species; WorldNet Daily, 2005)

2."Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs."  (Earth First! Journal editor John Daily)

3."To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world population problem." (Yale professor Lamont Cole)

4."The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States." (Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund)

5."Until such time as homo sapiens decide to rejoin nature, (we) can only hope for the right virus to come along."  (David Graber, research biologist with the National Park Service)

6."Nonpersons or potential persons cannot be wronged…because death does not deprive them of something they value."  (John Harris, Sir David Alliance professor of bioethics, University of Manchester, England)   
 
On the Need to Eliminate Human Weeds and Other Evil Schemes  

1."In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would fill the bill.  All these dangers are caused by human intervention…the real enemy…is humanity itself."  (The First Global Revolution, published by the Club of Rome)  

Note: The Club of Rome bills itself as a global think tank.  It is comprised of globally powerful Grimas and Saruman types: liberal scientists, economists, businessmen, international high civil servants, university presidents, members of parliament, heads of state, and former heads of state from all five continents.  They describe themselves as people who believe that the future of humankind is not determined once and for all.  This is code for evolutionary ascent from inert chemicals to primordial life to ape-like hominids and then human life to trans-human (something more highly evolved than mere human) and finally---godhood.  

2."In Guyana, within 2 years, it (DDT) had almost eliminated malaria…my chief quarrel with DDT…is that it has greatly added to the population problem."  (Alexander King, former president of the Club of Rome)  

Note:  In the 60's, a group of depopulation environmentalists conspired to have DDT banned from being used to control mosquitoes and malaria.  The subsequent banning resulted in millions of deaths.  One source estimates the death total as 500 million.  

3."I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing.  There are others…If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate…without making the world too full…the state of affairs might be unpleasant but what of it?  Really high-minded people are indifferent to suffering, especially that of others."  (Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society)  

Note:  Although they've not managed to spread the Black Death, they have managed to ignite a similar worldwide conflagration of STDS and AIDS.  Keep in mind that it's progressive liberals and their international cohorts who preach and pave the way for the gospel of ''salvation and redemption by sex."  What they don't want you to know is that it's really the environment (Gaia) that they are trying to save from the human plague. The idea here is that through unrestrained libido, sexually-enslaved human weeds will become diseased, sterile, psychologically damaged, and die earlier rather than later.  

Ask yourselves why there has been no logical response to this plague.  Why for instance, has there been a pronounced furtherance of unrestrained fornication, sodomy, lesbianism, and sado-masochism rather than a call for abstinence?   And in the face of mounting death totals (468,000 dead from AIDs since 1981), why do they continue to teach your children to engage in the very behaviors which they know to be the cause of psychological disorder and death?  The CDC (2002) reports that 16,000 deaths from AIDs occur annually. Another 40,000 new cases of infection occur within the same time frame.  There are 1 million cases of HIV, 31-50 million of herpes simplex, 24 million of HPV, and 1 million cases of chronic hepatitis B.  

Now connect the dots between the Aids and STDs devastations and the 610 million plus surgically and chemically induced abortions between 1965-1996 (American Life League).  Itappears that under the guiding hand of Grimas and Saruman types that America is on the fast-track of demographic suicide.  

According to Grima and Saruman, how many nonhumans should be allowed to exist?    

1."The total world population should be no more than 2 billion rather than the current 5.6 billion."  (Cornell University professor David Pimentel, speaking before the American Assoc. for the Advancement of Science)

2."The damage people cause is a function of demographics…One American burdens the earth much more than 20 Bangladeshes…In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day."  (Jacques Cousteau, the UNESCO Courier, Nov. 1991)

3."Cut the population by 90%"  (Dr. Sam Keen, Gorbachev Conference in San Francisco)

The Evil Religion of Environmentalism   

In speaking before the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Sept. 15, 2003, Michael Crichton told his audience,

"...certain human social structures…can't be eliminated from society.  One of those…is religion.  Today it is said we live in a secular society in which…the best people, the most enlightened…do not believe in any religion.  But…you cannot eliminate religion from the psyche of mankind…suppress it in one form; it…re-emerges in another form.  Today, one of the most powerful religions in the Western World is environmentalism."  

Self-deifying liberalism, pleasure-seeking hedonism, and environmentalism (pagan worship of creation) in conjunction with Darwinism (the scientism that validates this lethal brew) and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies are the core elements comprising the most intrinsically evil religion ever known to mankind.  In its' guise as Marxist Communism this evil religious worldview is condemned by Stephane Courtois (The Black Book of Communism) as a criminal ideology that attracts narcissists and diabolical psychopaths such as Lenin, Stalin and Mao.  And unless we can arrest it, as Winston Churchill declared, it will "shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible."   
 

Liberalism is a theology of demons, hence the psychology of the hell-bound, and though most people who vote for liberals don't embrace this psychology, they can be persuadedand seduced by lying, evil-minded Grimas to embrace it by disguising its' ill-will and evil intentions as enlightened science, reason, forward thinking, change, compassion, fairness, diversity, inclusion, equality, multiculturalism, and global cooling, warming or change (whatever works). 

It is said that courage is the first of the virtues because without it we will cower before and submit to the wrath, psychological bullying and lies of liberals.   According to the OT prophet Isaiah, those who fear the wrath of liberals--- who are destined to die and go into hell---have forgotten the Lord.  Liberal opposition to the Holy Trinity will not and cannot last, nor is liberal wrath anything when compared to Divine wrath:

"...So have no fear of them...do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.  Rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell...."    For all of the faithful and orthodox who confess and repent of their sin and acknowledge their Savior Jesus Christ God Incarnate before men He "will also acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven."   Matthew 10: 26-32

Margaret Sangers' Malignant Gospel of Redemption and Salvation

Although no shots have been fired as yet, a fierce battle is nonetheless being waged for the hearts and souls of Americans. The combatants, locked in a life-or-death struggle, are two antithetical worldviews. On one side is America's traditional Christian-based worldview, selected by our Founders as the moral rock on which to anchor our Republic. First among its principles is the sanctity of life firmly grounded on  the unique concept of man as the spiritual image-bearer of the Holy Trinity.   This historically unique concept gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," an absolute necessity if individual liberty and equality before the law are to exist.  All together this concept is,

"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, Vishal Mangalwadi, pp. 12-13)

The second combatant is a malevolent alien to our shores. It is based in arrested emotional development, malignant envy, wrath, and dark fantasies of impossible equality made possible by the dehumanization of man:

"Darwin put an end to the belief that the animal and vegetable species bear no relation to oneanother (and) that they were created by God, and hence immutable." (Vladimir Lenin, Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9)

David Horowitz said of this combatant that it bears a,

 "...deep hatred for the human norm and an unquenchable desire for its annihilation…the inhumanity of the radical ambition was what made the Communist epoch so consummate in its evil…an agenda whose aim is to erase the human past and remake the human soul." (The Politics of Bad Faith; www.discoverthenetwork.org).

Though this malevolent worldview wraps itself in an egocentric banner of reason and evolutionary science, it is in actuality a system of extreme, hard-edged narcissism, moral imbecility, sophistry and inhumane philosophy, which functionally speaking, serves as a religion. This religion, were it given a name, would be called Evolutionary Humanism or Religious Naturalism.

As all religiously held belief systems do, it informs men of who their anti-creator is (spontaneously generated or eternally existing matter) and how they were 'created' by way of evolution, the universal life force. It tells men who they are: soulless, slightly smarter human apes, lacking both free will and morally informed conscience. It relates to men the story of what went wrong with man and the world (an incompetent Creator, a Gnostic Demiurge). In the humanist version, men are told that the human ape species was originally naturally good (Gospel of Rousseau), and the source of evil by which men became oppressed and unconscious of their inner divinity (the fall) lies within the Genesis account of creation andtraditional Biblical-based social institutions (Gospel of Rousseau). This is simply a euphemistic way of saying that the Holy Trinity, His Creation, Original Sin, laws, and social institutions are sources of evil.

Finally, as religions are wont to do, it tells men that through a plan of redemption and salvation what must be done to redeem the fallen world and human apes. In the humanist version, all power and authority must be collectivized and placed into the hands of god-like Gnostic pagan elites, the "chosen ones" who possess infinite intellectual powers and will actualize the plan of salvation. This will lead to the creation of an earthly paradise (Kingdom of Man) populated with the New Man (bio-machine), the scientifically engineered Frankenstein monster of the elites.

There are a variety of evolutionary humanisms or "liberation ideologies," and all of them are variations on a theme:  history ascends in a series of evolutionary stages, and as each stage ends, its' social institutions and mores must be shed…as a reptile sheds its old skin…lest the old ways impede evolutionary progress towards perfection. This myth was dubbed the "Escalator Myth" by British philosopher Mary Midgley.

Also dubbed the "myth of progress," or "change," the Escalator Myth,

"...is a secularization of the Christian teaching of divine providence."  (How Now Shall We Live? Charles Colson and Nancy Pearcey, p. 232)

All liberation ideologies are grounded in religious naturalism, evolutionary biology (common descent from primordial blob) and evolutionary cosmologies.  Whereas faithful, orthodox Christianity teaches that the Trinity is the author and finisher of history-- which is moving towards the Kingdom of God--- that the Bible is God's plan of redemption and salvation, and that fallen man can only be saved through the grace of Jesus Christ, in contrast, the Escalator Myth teaches that we are evolving towards a utopian paradise on earth, a Kingdom of Man which will be created through the godlike ingenuity of scientifically enlightened elites.

"Moderns are dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good."  T.S. Eliot

The humanist plan of redemption and salvation is contained within various 'gospels' written by 'elite' trans-humans who are revered as 'enlightened' voices of science (the new Bible) and divine reason. Among these worshipped notables are Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Francis Galton, Darwin, Herbert Spencer, Karl Marx, Engels, Hegel, Teilhard de Chardin, Alfred Kinsey, and Margaret Sanger.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, preached a salvation doctrine that advocated both sexual libertinism and abortion and damned Original Sin, "He created them male and female" (Gen. 5:2),  Christian morality and all God ordained norms and institutions. She believed that if society would jettison the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo as well as the moral constraints and prohibitions which prevent the release of pent-up inner energies most of societies larger evils would disappear. To a female whose morals were those of a tramp, any sort of sex, even that of adults rutting on children, is simply an act of releasing inner energies.

Complete freedom to fornicate, and now today, complete freedom to engage in sodomy and lesbianism coupled with complete freedom to prevent conception or to get rid of newly conceived human life was, according to the Gospel of Sanger, the shining path by which human nature could be transformed into a New Man. Sanger enthusiastically proclaimed that it is within the power of the 'chosen ones' to scientifically re-engineer the souls of human beings in order to create a New Man and a perfect civilization that would"transmute and sublimate the everyday world into a realm of beauty and joy."

By Sangers' account, revolution consists of a struggle to liberate our bodies and minds from the shackles of the Holy Trinity and Biblical morality.  She adamantly opposed "the moralists" who preached abstinence, self-denial, and self-control and described Christian morality as "the cruel morality of self-denial, and sin."   Christian morality and sin must be thrown down, crushed, and replaced with sexual liberation.  According to Sanger, only through release of sexual energies can a person find "inner peace and security and beauty."  Moreover, release of sexual energy is the only method for overcoming social ills. (ibid, p. 238)

The redemptive power of unrestrained libido, by Sanger's reckoning, would make man godlike. Through the "release and channeling of the primordial inner energies of man" men and women can evolve into geniuses. In this twisted version of the Garden of Eden story, it's not the fruit of the tree that makes us godlike; it's the release of sexual energies. (ibid)

Another preacher of Sanger's Gospel is Robert Rimmer, author of "The Harrad Experiment" (1966). His book fueled the sexual liberation movement and was for an entire generation of college attendees recommended reading in courses dealing with marriage and family. Like Sanger, Rimmer preached that promiscuity was the means for taking "one more step up the evolutionary ladder…for evolving into a new form of man or woman." Sex, he wrote, is "actually an act of worship." (ibid, p. 240)

Yet another contemporary of Sangers' is Mary Calderone, architect of sex education in all public schools and former director of the Sex Information and Education Council of the U.S. (SIECUS). In a 1968 article Calderone openly admitted the real agenda of sex educators when she wrote, "What kind (of person) do we want to produce to take the place of human nature as we know it today?" (ibid, p. 241)

In the Gospel of Sanger, complete sexual freedom was but one method for creating the New Man, elevating the 'chosen' to the status of genius, and creating paradise on earth. The other necessary step was in either preventing new life from being conceived or by getting rid of it once it had been conceived. This means sterilization, eugenics, and abortion, otherwise known as family planning.

The latter step serves two primary purposes in the evolutionist's scheme of things. The first revolves around preventing the birth of what Sanger termed "unfit" and "dysgenic" breeding stock. Among these were Italians, Jews, blacks, epileptics, the disabled, the diseased, mental defectives, and Catholics. Catholics were evil because they were staunch sanctity of life supporters. In the view of todays' sexual liberationists, all defenders of the Genesis account together with all sanctity of life supporters are considered to be evil fanatics, hateful bigots, homophobes, and mentally unbalanced anti-science superstitious morons.

The second purpose is really an act—it's the ultimate act of rebellion against the Holy Trinity, His inerrant Revealed Word and all that's true, virtuous, natural and decent.

"Unless we know ourselves to be full of pride, ambition, concupiscence, weakness, wretchedness and unrighteousness, we are truly blind." (Pensees, Pascal, p. 229)

Omnipotence, in the case of wretched, pride-inflated, truly blind, scientifically enlightened "elites" comes from having power over the Holy Trinity and His Revealed Word so as to give their own words the active force of the Triune Gods creative words. In this way, empowered god-men can unweave and refashion creation, human beings, Scripture, the family and society as needed.   They can decide who lives and who must die, what we may have or not have, as well as what we are allowed to know and not know. This is a sociopaths power trip.  

Sanger's malice-fueled megalomania was on display when she proclaimed,

"I believe…woman was enslaved by the world machine, by sex conventions, by motherhood and... child-rearing…by middle class morality, by customs, laws and superstitions."

 Only in the disordered mind of a malignant narcissist would it make sense to rebel against the Holy Trinity, his or her own inner person (soul/spirit), and society's norms by declaring a right to "be lazy," "to be an unmarried mother," "to destroy," "to create," "to love," and "to freely release inner energies." Her oxymoronic illogic can be restated as: "Libido dominandi is the path to glory."

In observance of the malevolence-and-murder fueled obsession of evolutionary "elites" with destroying the hated Christian-based order, re-engineering the soul of man and creating a paradise on earth David Horowitz wrote,

 "The century behind us is littered with the corpses of millions who died on the cross of such new worlds…the quest for a 'new man' and 'new woman' consumed the lives of entire nations." (The Politics of Bad Faith)

The systematic murder of millions of men, women, and children in the former Soviet Union was primarily facilitated by two things.  First by 'scientifically' animalizing  all people who were objects of hatred, resentment and envy.   This was achieved by application of the Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking that ultimately enabled Marxists to justify their monstrous crimes against humanity.   Second, by maliciously whipping up and enflaming the evil that resides in the hearts of the 'oppressed.'    In America, the 'oppressed' are mainly 'gays,' lesbians, non-conforming gender-free beings, Satanists, witches, pagans, illegals, certain people of 'color,' Muslims, criminals and pregnant women in need of liberation by way of abortion.

"....murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother's blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed." (Tertullian, Apologeticus IX.- 6, 8)

Sanger believed that abortion was a necessary and practical method for regulating the breeding stock of the next generation.   The evil initiated by Sanger has swollen into the murderous abomination known as the pro-choice movement.  (The Deadliest Monster, J.F. Baldwin, p. 191)

 According to American Life League, the total number of abortions in the U.S. from 1973 to 2011 is 54.5 million plus:

"These statistics include only surgical and medical abortions. Because many contraceptive measures are abortifacients (drugs that induce or cause abortions), it is important not to overlook the number of children killed by chemical abortions. Since 1965, an average of 11 million women have used abortifacient methods of birth control in the United States at any given time. Using formulas based on the way the birth control pill works, pharmacy experts project that about 14 million chemical abortions occur in the United States each year, providing a projected total of well in excess of 610 million chemical abortions between 1965 and 2009."  (Abortion, all.org)

Evil Ideas Unleash Evil into the World

At the end of WW II, dispirited atheist, communist, socialist, progressive and Christian thinkers began to analyze the crisis the war had precipitated and to reconstruct the civilization it had threatened.  Out of these efforts arose the "new conservative" or traditionalist wing of the postwar conservative intellectual movement in America. (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 30)
 
Their penetrating analysis of the ideas underlying and fueling communism and socialism such as the total immanent society (omnipotent, all-knowing society), Social Darwinism, positivism, rationalism, evolutionary naturalism, materialism, collectivism, atomistic liberalism and underlying them all, atheism, led many of them to declare that evil ideas working through the minds of men had ultimately unleashed the catastrophic evils that had enveloped much of the world.  Upon this realization many of them either returned or converted to faithful, orthodoxChristian theism.
 
For example, Douglas Hyde, an English ex-Communist and convert to Catholic Christianity emphatically declared:
 
"The sanest things on earth are those for which the allegedly reactive, unscientific, obscurantist Church stands and for which she is doing battle." (ibid, p. 52)
 
"Christianity is the most complete and perfect revelation of the nature of God and of God's will for man," wrote John Hallowell in 1950.  

Supernatural orthodox Christianity was the unifying thesis of Hallowell's interpretation of modern scientific/evolutionary  political philosophy:
 
"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insights we have into the nature of man and of the crisis in which we find ourselves.  That crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of a transcendent or spiritual reality and of his progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent conception of reality....Only through a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ, can modern man and his society find redemption from the tyranny of evil."  (ibid, p. 53)
 
The Christianity which Hallowell, Hyde and other early conservatives defended was not the liberal or modernist evolutionary Christianity of the Social Gospel and Gnostic immanent Protestantism. Nor would it be the evolutionary theism, progressive creationism or any of the myriad of twisted theology posing as Christianity today.  What early Conservatives proposed and defended was supernatural Christianity grounded in what for many early conservatives was the deepest, most terrifying lesson of WW II: the lesson of evil, of original sin:
 
"We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin," asserted Hallowell.  To Richard Weaver, no concept gave deeper insight into the "enigma that is man" than original sin.  Evil was not just a "bad dream" an "accident of history," or "the creation of a few antisocial men."   Evil is a "subtle, pervasive, protean force," and original sin was a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing."   (ibid, 53)
 
Eliseo Vivas concurred.   Inside every man and woman he said, lay "brutality" and a "natural tendency" to define value in his own interests (moral relativism). 

In "The Problem of Pain," C.S. Lewis observed,

"Man is now a horror to God and to himself…not because God made him so but because he has made himself so by the abuse of his free will…Evil comes from the abuse of free will."

In denying their own sin nature, bloody-handed evolutionary humanists have become the embodiment of the very thing they live in denial of. And this is why they have become horrors to both God and man.

The Evil Eye of Envy & Americas' Progressive Ruling Class

In "Another Week In Obama’s War On America" Don Feder notes that Obama isn’t at war with ISIS, the Taliban or the Muslim Brotherhood. He’s at war with the Constitution, the middle class, and, ultimately, with America:

"For our president, the 2014 election was liberating. There’s no longer a need to pretend, for the sake of his party, that he feels anything but contempt for the nation he was elected to govern. "  (barbwire.com, Dec. 2, 2014)

Last week was typical said Feder. On Monday, after a grand jury refused to indict Officer Darren Wilson for acting in self-defense, a mob once again rampaged in Ferguson, Missouri. After mouthing a regulation-issue call for calm, the president used the mayhem to push his racist/redistributionist agenda:

"While there’s no excuse for violence, “we have to understand” the rage of the lynch mob, the leader of the free world told us. “We need to recognize that the situation in Ferguson (black businesses burned to the ground) speaks to the broader problems that we still face as a nation” – like having a president who condones anarchy?"

Feder observes that tribalism is okay when it’s the Ferguson mob demanding color-coded justice, but not for a majority of Americans, of all races, who insist that everyone obey the law and that people who want to live in America actually become Americans:

"Obama is using “executive amnesty” to help obliterate our national identity. He wants more and more people living and voting in America who don’t speak English, who don’t know our history, who care nothing for our traditions, and who don’t identify with America. If they were Muslims too, it would be perfect. But he can’t have everything. Providing illegals with services is also essential, to make them docile clients of the welfare state."

Obama and like-minded progressives could fix what is wrong with America if it weren't for the stupidity of bigoted American voters:

"Obama thinks the middle class is ignorant and bigoted – a bunch of honky hicks despising people who don’t look like them, while they cling to their guns and outmoded churches."

While faithful and orthodox Christians and Jews pray to the Holy God who created man in His own spiritual image, like all ruling class progressives Obama prays to himself as a savior of the planet and shaper of mankind in his own image. (The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It,Angelo Codevilla, p. xix) 

Because progressive power elites elevate science and evolution above the Revelation of God and reject creation ex nihilo in favor of pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies they are enabled to look down upon the hated "masses" and view them not as people but as evolved apish, grunting hominids, so naturally they believe Americans are completely unfit to run their own lives.

Moreover, as transcendent morality and unchanging truth are anathema to them then lying, sophistry and other forms of deception are entirely within reason. According to Codevilla, since no,

"....standard of right and wrong (is) beyond the Ruling Class'....self-conception, its greatest concern has been to denigrate the American people's devotion to God, because the Ruling Class accepts no standard it cannot control." (ibid, p. xx)

As the Holy Triune God is dead in the hearts of the progressive ruling class so too is His Moral Law and immutable Truth, making Big Lies, sophistry, propaganda of the lie and all other forms of deception entirely within reason for attainment of desired ends. 

It is God Himself Who tells us what is wrong with the thinking, words and actions of the progressive ruling class:

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"  Jeremiah 17:9, KJV

Out of the rebellious, God-hating hence unregenerate spirit (heart or disordered thought life, polluted conscience, will turned toward evil) proceed,

"evil thoughts, murders, adulteries fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: these are the things which defile a man..."   (Matthew 15: 17-20)

Compare this with 1 John 3:15:  "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer."

In other words, and particularly in relation to morals, the thought life (spirit) is what's wrong.  It begins with the inner life of mind, it is vanity of the darkened mind from which evil proceeds.

In Ephesians 4:18 we are provided the reason for this: 

"Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness (hardness) of their hearts."  (True Spirituality, Francis Schaeffer)

In this light we can see that the examples of disordered, inverted thinking provided by Feder proceed from a darkened thought life, depraved conscience and will turned toward evil.   At a fundamental level, the common point of departure underlying each example is that most cold-blooded, malicious and murderous sin of all: envy.

Envy is not an emotion but a poisonous and fanged serpentine creature of thought, depraved conscience and will.  Envy is not a spur of the moment outburst but rather proceeds from cold-blooded calculation that says, "if it weren't for you I wouldn't suffer the gnawing pangs of envy"  and "I hate you because you are you and I am not."  

Envy then is spiritual warfare manifest in psychological bullying tactics such as cruel ridicule, character assassination, destructive criticism, labeling (i.e., bigot, racist, homophobe, creationist conservative, traditionalist), spreading lies and accusations of mental illness:

"In Aug., 2003, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the results of their $1.2 million tax-payer funded study.  It stated, essentially, that traditionalists are mentally disturbed.  Scholars from the Universities of Maryland, California at Berkeley, and Stanford had determined that social conservatives...suffer from ‘mental rigidity,' ‘dogmatism,' and ‘uncertainty avoidance,' together with associated indicators for mental illness." (Social and Emotional Learning, Jan. 26, 2005, edwatch.org) 

Scripture provides many examples of the murderous intent and end of envy: Cain and Abel and Judas, the Pharisees and Jesus Christ.

Returning to Feder's examples: each one is a calculated response to envy provided by the envy-bitten.   For example, the demand made by the burning Evil Eye focused upon straight males and females which proceeds from "gays," lesbians and transgenders is the teaching of perverse sex education by males in dresses to the children of straight people, "gay" marriage, genderless restrooms, and eradication of gender specific words such as mother and father.

A wicked will and depraved conscience, especially when fueled by murderous envy, are the most destructive, totalitarian and murderous forces in any society.  It is only within this context that we can understand why our once family and decency centered Christian-grounded culture of life, moral order and freedom increasingly resembles both Sodom and decadent Rome in its death throes where every man, from king to slave had as many masters as he had vices (sins).

Revering the Dark Side: Americas Wicked Secular Power Elite

“Political Correctness” is a euphemism for the silencing tactics of power elites who are pushing power-consolidating agendas. It works by isolating and marginalizing anybody who might get in the way of those agendas, through smears and threats and psychological manipulation. I think it’s critical that each and every one of us build awareness of those tactics — as well as an understanding of our own human weaknesses — so that we can keep ourselves and our minds free. Free speech is a use-it-or-lose-it proposition. If we don’t push back, we will lose it. The protesters will lose their freedom as well, though, sadly, they don’t realize that."  (Follow up about the Disruption of Speech at Catholic U, stellamorabito.net, Nov. 28,2014) 

Faithful Christians are not to be conformed to the world but rather remain apart from it lest they become polluted by the world system.  This command of God to His people is at the foundation of and key strategy behind political correctness (aka consensus process). The key strategy is fueled by the knowledge that all people have an inherent fear of being alienated from the group. During sensitivity-training and diversity-training sessions for example, skillful change-agents (morally compromised facilitators) psychologically manipulate this fear to herd selected victims (i.e., faithful, orthodox Christians)  toward a preplanned conclusion (i.e., acceptance of science and evolutionary theory in place of the Gen. account ex nihilo as well as acceptance of "gay" marriage) into compromise of both conscience and  orthodox position. This is political correctness or the consensus process in a nut shell, and when we hear secular power elites---mouthpieces for the devil--- and their evil-minded liberal counterparts screaming for 'consensus,' they're really demanding that they be allowed to 'facilitate' the compromise of conscience and position that leads to the abandonment of what the Holy Triune God said for what man said as well as the Christian-based Western ideals and principles at the foundation of our Constitutional Republic.

There are three steps to the consensus process. They are called, "Unfreezing the present level, moving to the new level, and freezing group life on the new level." In order to speed up the unfreezing phase, communist shock-troopers of evil resorted to physical torture, shock 'therapy,' and mind-altering drugs. In America, secular pagan sadists precipitate emotional pain, intimidation, and fear by way of psychological bullying tactics such as cruel ridicule, character assassination, destructive criticism, labeling (i.e., bigot, racist, homophobe, creationist conservative, traditionalist), spreading lies and accusations of mental illness:

"In Aug., 2003, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the results of their $1.2 million tax-payer funded study.  It stated, essentially, that traditionalists are mentally disturbed.  Scholars from the Universities of Maryland, California at Berkeley, and Stanford had determined that social conservatives...suffer from ‘mental rigidity,' ‘dogmatism,' and ‘uncertainty avoidance,' together with associated indicators for mental illness." (Social and Emotional Learning, Jan. 26, 2005, edwatch.org)

Science, mystical evolution, and hedonistic materialism are core elements of the hellish worldview of America's secular "power elites."  At its' core is the assertion that everything that exists is energized matter.   Whether matter and energy are held to be eternally existing or spontaneously generated (Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) matters not since the common point of departure for all worldviews grounded in matter and energy is metaphysical nihilism,

"... This position has been held by philosophers such as Parmenides, Buddha, Advaita Vedantins, and perhaps Kant (according to some interpretations of his transcendental idealism). Blob theory can also be considered very closely aligned with mereological nihilism (there are no parts and wholes). Obviously if metaphysical nihilism is correct, empirical reality is an illusion." (What is Metaphysical Nihilism? OpenTopia.com)

According to Stephen Greenblatt, Pulitzer Prize winning author of the "The Swerve: How the World became Modern," metaphysical nihilism is a reason­able price to pay to keep us,

“...from a preoccupation with angels and demons” and to focus on things in this world; it will free us “to construct experiments without fearing that one is infringing on God’s jealously guarded secrets” and to engage in inquiry without dogmatic restrictions; and to live an ethical life without dread of eternal punishment. It protects us against the dangers and disappointments of longing and love by insisting on Epicurean repose and renunciation. Mostly, it distracts us from considerations of death, the reflection on which and the fear of which makes us do crazy things."  (Swerving Towards Modernism, Jeffrey Polet, The Imaginative Conservative, Nov. 2014) 

However, by the inner logic of metaphysical nihilism, "reality" is non-self, meaning that secular power elites and their disciples are walking dead bodies that nevertheless speak. It is this "reality" of nothingness that supposedly liberates them.  As it was for murderous 20th century communist and fascist totalitarians, so it is for todays' neo-pagan and mystical pantheist secularists that metaphysical nihilism and the dehumanization of 'other' that takes place in darkened minds and wills turned toward evil is liberating, at least during younger years when death is not yet a blip on the radar. This is because for the uncreated, liberated, autonomous yet non-existent 'self' that is paradoxically the measure of all things and whose life no longer has any ultimate meaning or purpose there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why, by extension of this evil reasoning, the perverted and murderous should not do what they want to do. But the nihilism, egotism, lying, perverse license, and sadistic pleasure attained through psychological terror, domination and manipulation of dehumanized 'dupes' and their children, all of which the evil rejoice in during their younger years becomes an unbearable source of despair, horror, night terrors, dread-inducing sensations of standing atop a bottomless void, and thoughts of murder and suicide with the advent of old age and the approach of death.   

In this light appear salient features of the power elites' psychology:  extreme narcissism, self-delusion, full-blown paranoia, moral imbecility, sophistry, and parasitism fueled by a will turned toward evil and a massively depraved conscience.

The depraved conscience is an unexamined conscience. 

In his Commentary on Psalm 33/2, 8, St. Augustine notes that a dirty house (depraved conscience) is the miserable condition of all whose inflexible pride makes them refuse to face their own conscience lest they be overwhelmed by the wickedness they find there. (Day by Day with Saint Augustine, Donald X. Burt, p. 107)

Thus secular elites and their evil-doing liberal followers are self-righteous narcissists who refuse to tolerate the knowledge of their own weaknesses, failings, and sinfulness.  Thus they constantly engage in sweeping the evidence of their own remarkably consistent sins under the rug of their conscience in order to preserve their carefully constructed glass-houses from which they throw stones, particularly at the resented righteous.  In their hypocrisy they refuse to see their own wickedness but clearly see and constantly carp upon, gossip about and point the finger of accusation at the weaknesses and failings of other people, especially those whom they resent.

Because secular elites and their liberal followers constantly fret about preservation of self-image they are hyper-sensitive to what others might think of them, thus they engage in an unceasing yet ultimately futile effort to maintain an outward appearance of moral purity and superiority.  Because of this they hate the light–---the light of true truth, moral law, virtues and goodness that not only expose them but penetrate their deceptions. 

A wicked will causes evil and suffering

Ultimately, a depraved conscience is the result of a strong will determined to have its’ own way, thus St. Augustine points to a wicked will as the cause of all evil and suffering. This is because its' evil companions are self-love, covetousness, envy and lust for power. Because the willfulness of the wicked will is so extraordinary and always accompanied by a lust for power idolatrous narcissists are more likely than most to gravitate to positions of power and influence within for example, academia, seminaries, politics, courts of law, and Hollywood. Thus empowered, the wicked will imposes itself upon other wills by overt or covert coercion solidified in psychological abuse and manipulation such as sensitivity training in order to destroy the spiritual virtues of others.  This evil is the result of envy.

When narcissism is so total that the conscience is seared and capacity for empathy and charity lost, the narcissist has descended into malignant narcissism.  Malignant narcissism negates restraints that result from empathy and charity.   This motivates them to not just dehumanize and scapegoat others but to spiritually and physically crucify them….to murder them.

By transferring their own wickedness onto others through projection and scapegoating, narcissists and malignant narcissists cause evil and suffering.  For example, when they acquire domination over their own families they create miniature totalitarian societies characterized by pathological lying, psychological manipulation and bullying, physical abuse, paranoia, confusion, fear, deception, isolation, suspicion, craziness, distrust, and rage.

Metaphysical Nihilism: Worldview from Hell

 Key elements of metaphysical nihilism are the following crazy-making ideas:

1. Only science counts as knowledge

2. Life has no origin or purpose other than pursuit of pleasure at any cost

3. All that exists is matter in motion making the Triune God Who created all things ex nihilo unacceptable

4. Complete rejection of Biblical dualism, that is, man as soul/spirit embedded within a body (matter) in favor of man as bio-machine, a non-self emergent product of evolution acting on matter.

5. The "factual" existence of a mystical universal life force (evolution)

 According to Angelo Codevilla, author of "The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It," while most Americans still pray to the Holy Triune God Who created all men in His spiritual image, Americas' idolatrous secular power elite:

...prays to themselves as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image..." (p. xix)

Because power elites elevate science and evolution above the Revelation of God and reject creation ex nihilo in favor of evolutionary materialism they are enabled to look down upon the hated "masses" and view them not as people but as apish, grunting hominids, so naturally they believe Americans are completely unfit to run their own lives.

Moreover, as transcendent morality and unchanging truth are anathema to them then lying, sophistry and other forms of deception are entirely within reason. According to Codevilla, since no,

"....standard of right and wrong (is) beyond the Ruling Class'....self-conception, its greatest concern has been to denigrate the American people's devotion to God, because the Ruling Class accepts no standard it cannot control." (ibid, p. xx)

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"  Jeremiah 17:9, KJV

A wicked will and depraved conscience are the most destructive forces in any society.  It is only within this context that we can understand why our once family and decency centered Christian-grounded culture of life and moral order increasingly resembles both Sodom and Gomorrah and decadent Rome in its death throes.  

Our Americanized Sodom-Rome is animated by an inward spirit of negation (nihilism), wickedness, rebellion and scapegoating fueled by will to power and selfishness as highest virtue together with unabashed envy as cause celebre.  All of this corruption manifests in a politically correct legal license to oppress and repress (scapegoat and crucify) all who are the objects of resentment, hate and envy as well as for parasitic lifestyles, legalized sexual anarchy, plundering (thieving), subversion and perversion of youth, killing of inconvenient, unwanted human life and many other manifest evils.

 As a tyranny of envy (poneros) had  finally overtaken ancient Greek society, resulting in its degradation and implosion an exploration of Greek thought with regard to types of envy will prove enlightening.

The first type is 'zelos,' a kind of envy stirred up within both secular elite and liberals by any perceived superiority.  In the poem, 'Work and Days,' Isocrates presents the spirit of zelos as "with grim face and screaming voice, who delights in evil" and causes Decency and Respect to flee as is the situation in morally debauched Sodom America where young boys and girls are routinely groomed by sodomites, lesbians, pedophiles and pederasts to assuage unholy appetites and bloodthirsty Ferguson "protesters"  demand the blood of an innocent cop . (Envy and the Greeks: A Study of Human Behavior, Peter Walcot, pp. 2-3 from Death by Envy, Fr. George R. A. Aquaro, p. 12)

Zelos is also the spirit behind the 'murder' of the Christian God, the closing off of the supernatural dimension and the Way to Paradise with the requisite suppression of His Revelation to man, the miracle of Special Creation and Original Sin. Thus zelos is the lying, hateful, intolerant spirit behind the evolving universe of matter and energy as 'science.' 

Zelos animates gossip, slander, the politics of personal destruction, and sensitivity training. It demands redistribution of wealth, egalitarian sameness, androgyny, hiring quotas, same-sex marriage; gay, lesbian, criminal and terrorist rights; open borders, 'legalized' illegal immigration, and the mandated sexualization and perversion of our youth. Zelos is the spirit behind political correctness, hate crime laws, speech codes, multiculturalism, inclusion, tolerance, sensitivity, diversity, and socialism.

In its every crazy-making, murderous permutation Zelos is the spirit behind left-wing ideology and its' totalitarian fantasy:

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." (Winston Churchill, British orator, author and Prime Minister during World War II, 1874-1965)

"When I say that Marxism is based on envy, I mean that the glorious revolution of the proletariat...was really a promise to put a final end to all the conditions that make for envy." (Joseph Epstein, author and former editor of The American Scholar, from Truths about Socialism, Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)

Philotimia and hybris are next.   In Greek mythology, philotimia is narcissism, love of attention, self-affirmation and self-gratification while hybris is the arrogance, insolence, contempt, insult, shame , hatred and mistreatment of an envied other by a narcissist. In Greece, philotemia and hybris  were seen when the gods and their earthly counterparts punished subhumans for usurping their authority as well as when they struggled amongst themselves for positions of primacy.   Philotimia and hybris are the spirits behind the vicious psychological bullying, and other forms of mistreatment of hard-working tax-payers, faithful Christians, straight white conservatives, and Tea Partiers of every color and both sexes.   Philotimia/hybris is also the spirit animating the intolerant attitudes of evolutionary theologians toward defenders of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo. 

Phthonos is the fourth type of envy.  Phthonos seeks to deprive  envied 'other' of possessions, honor, status, and spiritual virtues through leveling down tactics such as redistribution of wealth, Obamacare, and gender-free pubic restrooms.  Phthonos is driven not just to ostracize and confiscate but to use terroristic force to take or deprive 'other' of whatever is envied.  Phthonos can drive a man (i.e., Cain) to murder his own brother and even to "kill" God (i.e., Nimrod, Karl Marx).

In Athens, the egalitarian, or leveling impulse, served to help relieve an envy-torn culture by leveling all men down.  This was enforced by character destruction and the threat of ostracism.

The fifth type of envy is vaskonia or Evil Eye (ophthalmos poneros, Satan) and means something even more malignant than phthonos.   Tolkien portrays vaskonia with the lidless burning eye of Sauron suspended between the twin horns of Barad Dur.   Vaskonia is malignant narcissism expressed as a type of witchcraft or evil spirit associated with the experience of envy, the malign touch or glance of which leaves a soiled imprint and implies instant victimization and death.   Vaskonia is sudden, meaning one wrong word, one wrong look on one's face, or the impulse of a moment is all it takes to become its' victim.

As ancient Greece had been engulfed by the spirit of envy,

"...one had to watch not only the malevolent actions of envious friends and enemies, but the very real threat of ostracism by the democratic community.  Philanthropy had much less to do with (love of man) as it had with....avoiding other people's phthonos of one's success."  (Death by Envy, p. 14)

As a whole, Scripture combines envy with hatred of one's brother, which means that there can be no love whatsoever where there is envy and hatred in one's heart.

The power elite refuse to accept their own sins and intellectual defects and their nihilist worldview from hell is a psychology of idolatry of self that, fueled by hatred of 'other' rationalizes a death cult.  During the twentieth century this murderous death cult was responsible for the brutal murders of in excess of 160,000,000 men, women, and children.

Power elites prefer their demonic neo-pagan and mystical pantheist cult beliefs to the Revealed Word of God, hence their contempt for Scripture requires a substitute: a new pagan and pantheist order that promises peace and plenty but delivers global enslavement and the death of billions of men, women, and children. 

 In conclusion, for more than fifty years the power elite and their secular liberal disciples have been deliberately demoralizing and debauching America and the church by way of psychological manipulation as well as sadistically bullying those who resist.   Collectively speaking, the power elite are a force for evil that reveres the dark side and pledges allegiance to a hell-born system of eternal damnation. 

Given the morally and doctrinally corrupted condition of much of the Christian Church and Christians themselves, unless we repent of our sins and ask for Gods' forgiveness and mercy, then total control of America will at some time in the future fall into the grasping hands of  demonized secular elites and psychological bullying as a means of power and domination will be dropped in favor of American Gulags, torture and murder.

America's Growing Anarchy of Selfishness & its Consequences

In "Supreme Court Destroys Trial by Jury," Mark Horne writes that trial by jury means that, whether you are really guilty or not, if the jury acquits you, then you are acquitted. Once the jury has spoken, no other authority can punish you for that accusation. But after a recent Supreme Court decision it no longer means that.  Now a judge can throw out the jury's ruling of "not guilty" and penalize a defendant on the basis of the prosecutor's allegations.  The Supreme Court has made a mockery of justice.  It has "just practiced jury nullification."  (politicaloutcast.com, 2014/10)

If he were still alive, Rousas John Rushdoony (1916 – 2001), a Reformed theologian, philosopher, and historian who is widely credited as an inspiration for the modern Christian homeschool movement, would not be surprised that our Supreme Court has destroyed trial by jury.  Nor would he be shocked that sodomy has been legalized and moral relativism has supplanted the immutable Truths and Moral Law of God since he knew that the majority of the citizens of the United States do not worship the Triune God of creation but rather worship on the altars of humanistic gods created in the imaginations of men:  

"To control the god of any system is to control the men within it. The long battle between church and state has this fact at its roots.  Orthodox Christianity gives us a God who is beyond the control of church and state alike.  Hence the God of Scripture has been resented by civil governments, and attempts to subvert orthodox Christianity and its churches have been legion.  The church too often has been restless under so sovereign a God; churchmen too prefer a god who can be put into man’s pocket.”    Rousas Rushdoony 
 
Proud, rebellious, selfish man has conceptually 'murdered' the Triune God and usurped His throne, thus with no Truth and Moral Law beyond his reach he (or she) effectively makes himself into a god by becoming the measure of all things. 

 It is envy--- vastly inflated pride, jealousy, covetousness, greed and hatred--- that is the principle of negation and rebellion in the fallen souls of all men who have "killed" God and usurped His throne.

 Envy has played a part in human dynamics ever since the envy-bitten Cain murdered his brother Abel.  Where envy resides there is neither love for God nor for brother:

 "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbour as thyself." Luke 10:27

The end of the commandment is charity (selfless love) from a pure heart, a good conscience and unfeigned faith. (1 Thess. 1:5) He that loves his neighbor fulfills the law for he does not lie, commit adultery or murder, nor does he steal, bear false witness (i.e., slander, gossip), and covet/envy.

Charity works no evil. It is not perversely puffed up with pride. It is not ambitious, does not serve 'self. '  Selfless love thinks no evil, does not covet and neither rejoices in another man's misery nor derides truth and virtue as the envious do:

"When men are full of envy, they disparage everything, whether it be good or bad." (Publius Cornelius Tacitus)

"Nothing sharpens sight like envy." (Thomas Fuller, British clergyman and writer, 1608-1661)

"Pride is seldom delicate, it will please itself with very mean advantages; and envy feels not its own happiness, but when it may be compared with the misery of others." (Samuel Johnson, British poet, critic, writer, 1709-1784)

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." (Winston Churchill, British orator, author and Prime Minister during World War II, 1874-1965)

"When I say that Marxism is based on envy, I mean that the glorious revolution of the proletariat...was really a promise to put a final end to all the conditions that make for envy." (Joseph Epstein, author and former editor of The American Scholar, from Truths about Socialism, Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of envy is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor), since a proud man or elite group of men make idols out of themselves, thereby assuming they possess honor and rights. This is why pride leads to contempt for truth, law, wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, institutions and other people in combination with any or all of the following: lying, treachery, gluttony lust, hate, cheating, promiscuity, sadism, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, adultery, theft and the dehumanization of other people resulting in psychological and physical slavery, population control schemes, abortion, brutality, terror, murder and even mass-murder or genocide.

Pride together with selfishness and envy is idolatry.  Idolatry demonstrates preference for one's self instead of God and neighbor (and unwanted babies), and just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, envy and murder are its' final results, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.

As the anarchy of selfishness, hatred, contempt and envy disguised as legal and personal opinion, evolutionary science and special rights gains a more complete leverage over our society what follows in its wake are absurdity, brutality, hatred, murder, chaos and tyranny.

The Meaning of Zombie Apocalypse

Our age is a time when the very idea transcendent truth is attacked and scorned, even within seminaries and the church where clergy who ought to revere truth most highly instead boast of thinking outside the box, of not being restricted by the Word of God, and in the spirit of postmodern contemporary church leader Brian McLaren of having,

“….captured, stuffed, and mounted truth on the wall.” (The Truth War, John MacArthur, p. x)

In 1973, secular psychologist Karl Menninger took aim at the attack on truth when he pointed out in a book entitled, Whatever Became of Sin? the fact that American churches were in the process of suppressing the reality of guilt in accord with the concept of a divine standard of right and wrong.

Menninger’s definition of sin was distinctly Biblical, thus entailed the idea of willful rebellion against and negation of the transcendent truth and moral laws of the Triune God of Revelation.  It was this unique concept of sin that was disappearing from the American consciousness and by extension, from public discourse.

More than forty years later, nearly half of all Christians are subjectivists who either wittingly or unwittingly elevate 'self,' science and evolution above the God of Revelation and likewise accept Robert Sculler’s postmodern arguments in “Self-Esteem: The New Reformation.” Today’s church said Schuller, can no longer afford to think in a God-centered fashion but must put humans and their needs first. It was appropriate for Calvin and Luther to think theocentrically but now,

the scales must tip the other way” towards a “human needs approach.” In fact, “classical theology has erred in its insistence that theology be ‘God-centered,’ not ‘man-centered.” In this context, the new definition of sin is, “any act or thought that robs myself or another human being of his or her self-esteem…And what is ‘hell’? It is the loss of pride that naturally follows separation from God—the ultimate and unfailing source of our soul’s sense of self-respect…A person is in hell when he has lost his self-esteem.” (Schuller, from “Christless Christianity, Michael Horton, p. 33)

 America’s postmodern 'scientifically enlightened' Church no longer defines itself as the church of the living God, the “pillar and support of the truth” (1 Timothy 3:15) and subsequently views the Cross as sanctification of narcissism (self-esteem) while Paul’s admonition to Timothy, “But understand this…in the last days…people will be lovers of self…” is redefined as a statement of backwardness and hate that must not be preached lest it “hurt a lot of beautiful people,” said Schuller.

For over forty years both Christian and secular have been told how special and unique they are, that as they have a right not to be offended they should not submit to rules, authority, processes or other moral restrictions that make them feel bad, and above all else they should trust their feelings to guide them. Reliance upon absolute principles, moral law and immutable truth places unrealistic limitations on one’s authentic self, thus damages self-esteem. So esteem ‘self,’ have lots of fun, actualize dreams, impulses, compulsions, and emerging sexual orientations, realize that your ‘God’ is not the Biblical God of Love and Judgment but of only love who helps those who esteem and help themselves, therefore always revel in the moment.

In this light it comes as no surprise that for increasing millions of Americans, secular and Christian alike, God exists for instance, as a divine energy within the mind of man, a voice speaking secret revelations into the minds of the chosen, or perhaps a god that can only create evolutively, according to the Hindu-pantheist apostate Teilhard de Chardin and like-minded evolutionary theists.  What this means is that for subjectivists, our Heavenly Father is merely a mouthpiece through which both narcissistic clergy and Christian masses self-righteously affirm ‘self’ and the 'impressive' theories, ideas, that ‘self’ thinks.

Because increasing numbers of contemporary Christian's elevate science above the Word of God they reflexively bow before the 'god' Evolution in its' many guises such as the Master-god-or-christ energy inside their own minds:

"People go through their whole lives chasing everything in the material world, and they fail to discover the greatest treasure of all, which is within them. Shut your eyes to the outside world. Direct your thoughts and words inside of you. The Master within you is the key to all the treasures in the world." (Rhonda Byrne, "The Secret Daily Teachings")

"Since the unconscious is God all along, we may further define the goal of spiritual growth to be the attainment of godhood by the conscious self." (A Different Drum, M. Scott Peck)

"....all is mind and...everything is governed by law (thus man) can create, or have created for him from his own thinking. He can create such a strong mental atmosphere of success that its power of attraction will be irresistible. He can send his thoughts throughout the world and have it bring back to him whatever he wants." (Creative Mind and Success, Ernest Holmes, New Thought practitioner)

"Your unconscious mind (has a) power that turns wishes into realities when the wishes are strong enough." ("Positive Imaging," Norman Vincent Peale, 1982, p. 77)

All of this means that today’s subjectivist Church is not interested in the authoritative Word of God but in autonomous 'self,' self-gratification, and acceptance and validation by the world. George Barna agrees. Based on numerous studies Barna concludes,

“….if we even believe in a supernatural deity (he) exists for the pleasure of humankind. He resides in the heavenly realm solely for our utility and benefit. Although we are too clever to voice it, we live by the notion that true power is accessed not by looking upward but by turning inward.” (ibid, p. 31)

From 2001 to 2005 University of North Carolina sociologist Christian Smith investigated teen spirituality in contemporary America. From his extensive research he concluded that the dominant form of spirituality among teens is “moralistic, therapeutic desism” in which God is restricted to the inner sphere’s of one’s private world.

Smith defines moralistic, therapeutic deism in the following five points:

1. God created the world
2. God wants people to be good, nice, and fair to each other
3. The central goal of life is to be happy and to feel good about oneself
4. God does not need to be particularly involved in one’s life except when needed to resolve a problem
5. Good people go to heaven when they die
(ibid, Christless Christianity, pp. 40-41)

There are as yet a remnant of churches, pastors, evangelists, apologetics and discernment ministries and missionaries here in America and around the world faithfully affirming and teaching that God called creation into existence ex nihilo in six days, that He made man in His spiritual image, and that though fallen and unable to save himself, Christ was crucified for the sins of all men.   But despite efforts of the shrinking faithful Michael Horton sees that the much larger postmodern Church is well on its way to becoming what he calls Christless Christianity.

Already we have arrived at a point where the message of the contemporary Church has simply become trivial, irreverent, sentimental, self-affirming, and irrelevant.

We do not realize the extent of our schizophrenia said Horton. While we annually decry the commercialization of Christmas we enthusiastically embrace the consumer-product-sales-approach formulated by ‘church growth’ experts like Hybels, Warren, and other transformational gurus. While calling our capitulation to subjectivism and self-affirming narcissism “mission and relevance” we hypocritically charge secularists,

“..with emptying public discourse of beliefs and values that transcend our instant gratification.” And as we lament “the growing secularization of American society…we ensure that the generations currently under our care will know even less than their parents…” (pp. 22-23)

In agreement, Collin Garbarino, author of "Moral Relativists In The University: They Aren’t Who You Think They Are," observes that many conservatives are subjectivists who hypocritically blame left-leaning professors for the rise in subjectivism. While a liberal faculty certainly promotes the idea that “good” is a relative term defined by the individual and the only “bad” is to infringe on another person’s ability to express their own version of “good,” the battle for conservatism was lost long before students ever met their first college professor. In my experience, said Garbarino, freshmen arrive on campus as subjectivists.  (The Aquila Report, August 24, 2014)

After citing a series of reports, Barna concludes that the spirituality of America is Christian in name only:

We desire experience more than knowledge. We prefer choices to absolutes. We embrace preferences rather than truths….Faith must come on our terms or we reject it. We have enthroned ourselves as the final arbiters of righteousness, the ultimate rulers of our own experiences and destiny. We are the Pharisees of the new millennium.” (Horton, p. 31)

Over and across the entire denominational spectrum of America's man-centered, subjectivist church,

"...millions of Americans claim a divine right to their own spiritual cocoon and belief system." Americans, "now lay claim to their 'own personal Jesus.' This personal vision of Jesus Christ may well bear little or no resemblance to Jesus as He is revealed in the Bible." (The Disappearance of God, Dr. Albert Mohler, xiii)

Unless something changes said Barna,

It will be every man for himself, with no second thoughts or regrets about the personal or societal implications of this incredibly selfish, nihilistic, narcissistic way of life…” (ibid)

"My people have committed two primary evils, "...they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water." (Jeremiah 2:13, King James)

In his commentary on this verse Matthew Henry writes that we are to be afraid of the wrath and curse which will fall upon those who throw themselves out of God's grace and favor. Grace in Christ is compared to cooling, refreshing  water from a fountain that cleanses and makes fruitful.   Grace in Christ is ever-flowing living water; it quickens spiritually dead sinners, revives drooping saints, supports and maintains spiritual life, and issues in eternal life. To forsake this Fountain is the evil done when the proud, rebellious people of God reject or neglect his Word and ordinances in favor of 'self' and the vain philosophies, inventions and worthless evolutionary scientism of men, which the prophet Jeremiah likens to broken cisterns that hold no water:

Creation is, as it were, a book. Every creature is a sentence or a word in this book. The Author and Publisher is the Triune God. It is the task of human and angelic intelligence to read God’s thoughts from this book and co-operate with Him. The theme, the dominant idea that runs through each sentence—even each word—is the Word made Flesh, the Incarnate Word of God, Jesus Christ, because this Word says everything. This is why the Archangel says to Blessed Mary at the Incarnation, “No word will be impossible for God.” Evolution is not a word. It cannot be found in this book or in its theme. It is a fable (cf. 2Tim 4:4), a “strange doctrine” of which St. Paul warned us against so long ago."   (Christ the Exemplar Cause of Creation, Eliminates the Possibility of Evolution, Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation) 

A spirit of pride and rebellion flows throughout America’s contemporary Christian Church, from Roman Catholic to Protestant, which is why it is a broken cistern that holds no living water.  The sin of pride begets the vice known as hatred of truth.

In “Against the Heathen,” early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and a haughty spirit preceded the fall of pre-flood men into idolatry (love of self), superstition (hatred of truth) and violence. Violence always accompanies man’s fall into worship of self, selfish ambition, status, pleasures and acquisition of things.

Violence is the effect of a human will not in submission to the will of our Heavenly Father. It is the outworking of a will turned toward evil through the use of force, which may be psychological (i.e., shunning, ignoring, belittling, slandering), physical, or both in order to dominate, control, outrage and transgress the dignity, integrity and love of truth that characterizes the righteous man.

In his book, “The Truth War,” John MacArthur writes that one of the distinguishing qualities of every true believer is love for the truth:

“…a genuine love for the truth is built into saving faith…In Jesus’ words, they have known the truth, and the truth has set them free. John 8:32″ (p. xi)

The reverse is true of those who will not enter the kingdom of God. The beginning of subjectivism is pride (love of self), the perfect anti-God, anti-truth, anti-higher knowledge state of mind---the primary characteristic of those who perish (2 Thessalonians 2:10; Psm. 36: 1-4):

“…where there is true faith in the Gospel of Christ, and in Christ the substance of it, there is salvation; the reason therefore of these men’s perishing is not the decree of God, nor (for) want of the means of grace, (or) the revelation of the Gospel, but their rejection and contempt of it.” (Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible)

Whatever a man places at the top of his pyramid of values is ultimately the Baal he serves. The ultimacy of that service profoundly affects not only how he thinks, speaks and acts  but where he will spend eternity.  When the society around him also turns away from the living God to ‘self’ and Baals, as the subjectivist Church and post-Christian West and America have done, it is an evil, idolatrous society heading for judgment and destruction.

This is why in "The Poison of Subjectivism," C.S. Lewis warns that subjectivism "will certainly end our species and damn our souls."   Because Lewis was a Christian he did not disagree with the fundamental teachings of his Lord and savior Jesus Christ (John 1:1) and the Old Testament prophets  that salvation presupposes repentance, and repentance presupposes an objectively real moral law.  In this light we can see that subjectivism will surely damn our souls because just as it suppresses objective truth and reality, so it eliminates moral law, thereby trivializing repentance, imperiling salvation and ending the human race, not by flood as before, but by fire.

Lewis sees farther than most, thus he argues that our species will be ended because the entire human race is becoming increasingly Westernized, thereby relativized.  The tragic irony here is that America,  which at one time was a fortress of Christian theism, is now the primary source of subjectivism in the world today because America's collapsing Christian denominations no longer defend objective truth and moral law.

According to Christian philosopher Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., the most recent polls show that Catholics are as relativistic, both in behavior and in belief, as non-Catholics. Sixty-two percent of Evangelicals say they disbelieve in any absolute or unchanging truths, and American Jews are significantly more relativistic and more secular than Gentiles. (A Refutation of Moral Relativism, Peter Kreeft)

The proud, self-centered 'Christian' subjectivist, be he theologian or otherwise, holds truth in contempt and is therefore aligned with the will of Satan, the teacher of dehumanizing evolutionary worldviews; the father of lies, narcissism, nihilism, and violence (John 8:44). Thus it is to proud 'Christian' subjectivists that Jesus said,

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ Matthew 7:21

Zombie Apocalypse

Barbarism prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah (Matthew 24:37):

" It is called barbarism because of the fact that in those times men had no ruling authority or mutual accord, but every man was independent and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will."   (John of Damascus, "The Fount of Knowledge," cited in Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 131)

Barbarism is the outworking of spiritually dead subjectivists, whether ministers of Satan or evolutionary atheists and pantheists, and the truth as to the evils of Noah's time said Athanasius, is that it originated and resided,

".... in the perverted choice of the darkened soul" which, "materialized by forgetting God" and engrossed in lower things, "makes them into gods," and thereby  "descends into a hopeless depth of delusion and superstition," whereby "they ceased to think that anything existed beyond what is seen, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

In other words, because man is a living soul embodied in flesh he cannot live by earthly bread alone.  His living soul/spirit requires the living waters, or heavenly manna that comes from our Heavenly Father. (Matthew 4:4)  Unless he repents and turns back to the Holy Trinity his soul will disintegrate, darken and materialize, meaning he will suffer a kind of death resulting in a reversal of conversion in which the soul ceases to live from the spirit and begins to live with the life of the body. The intellect becomes disordered and the disordered passions thereby revived absorb the life of the person who spiritually dies.  By the logic of spiritual death, he is a walking dead body, a zombie that nevertheless moves and speaks.  This is the natural man of 2 Tim. 3:3. (St. Tikhon, Works II, as quoted in Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, p. 120)

Natural man is a citizen of the earthly City of Man, one of the two cities formed by two opposing kinds of love. According to St. Augustine the City of Man is formed by the love of self, even to the contempt of God. The other, though entangled at present with the City of Man is the City of God formed by the love of God, even to the contempt of self:  “The former, in a word, glories in itself, the latter in the Lord.”   (St. Augustine, The City of God, Book 14, Section 28)  

In the mythology created by J.R.R. Tolkien, specifically the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Silmarillion, it's all important Genesis account, Tolkien posited three cities: the City of God (represented by the Fellowship of the Ring); the City of Man (Orthanc under Saruman, a Maia, or second-order angel); and that of the devil (Barad-Dur under Sauron).  (St. Augustine and J.R.R. Tolkien, Bradley J. Birzer, The Imaginative Conservative)

Like all of Iluvatars' created creatures, Sauron started well.  “For nothing is evil in the beginning,” Elrond stated at his Council. But in his pride and lust for domination he fell, and in his evil he surpassed human tyrants.  Being  an immortal (angelic) spirit, Sauron followed the lead of the rebel Devil Morgoth and became the greatest of all evils, serving as Morgoth’s lieutenant.

The “citizens” of Orthanc, under the strict command of Saruman, are the Orcs. Meaning “demon” in Anglo-Saxon, Orcs are corrupted, spiritually dead, self-centered Elves, the rational creatures of Iluvatar, the Divine God who sang creation into existence.  Orcs are cruel, wicked, bad-hearted zombies:

They make no beautiful things, but they make many clever ones. They can tunnel and mine as well as any but the most skilled dwarves, when they take the trouble, though they are usually untidy and dirty. Hammers, axes, swords, daggers, pickaxes, tongs, and also instruments of torture, they make very well, or get other people to make to their design, prisoners and slaves that have to work till they die for want of air and light. It is not unlikely that they invented some of the machines that have since troubled the world, especially the ingenious devices for killing large numbers at once, for wheels and engines and explosions always delighted them." (Tolkien, The Hobbit, p. 60)

Today our truth-hating, narcissistic society's morbid fascination with Walking Dead, Vampires, ghouls, skulls, ugliness and the putrid and bizarre ensuing in growing unease and fear in some quarters of Zombie Apocalypse can be rolled into a strange celluloid representation of the enigmatic expression that appeared as an inscription written by a detached hand on the wall of the palace where Belshazzar, the Chaldean king, was giving a banquet (Dan 5:25).  In his interpretation of the inscription (Dan 5:25-28) Daniel said God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end. 

Whereas  apostasy, spiritual death, and barbarism  'prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah,' so they are coming to fullness throughout the West and America during our own time.   And when they finally prevail throughout the world, then the resulting Zombie Apocalypse under direction of the Devil Morgoth and his first lieutenant Sauron will be the end of the human race in this present world and in the twinkling of an eye, the first moment of everlasting darkness.

Before it's too late

The Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word become Flesh, Jesus Christ the Physician came to heal the spiritually sick. But whoever rejects the Physician, whether through indifference or outright denial, rejects His prescription, hence destroys him or herself:

"..... I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life..." Deuteronomy 30:19-20

Destruction does not mean annihilation of the soul. The soul though immortal, said St. Augustine, nevertheless suffers a kind of death when the living God forsakes it:

"...in that penal and everlasting punishment....the soul is...said to die because it does not live in connection with God (meaning that) though man does not cease to feel, yet because this feeling is neither sweet... nor wholesome (but) painfully penal, it is (called) death rather than life." (St. Augustine's City of God, Chapter 2, Of that Death Which Can Affect an Immortal Soul, and of that to Which the Body is Subject)

The Wicked Nanny: Symptom of America's Dying Soul

Diane Stretton is a live-in nanny hired by the Bracamonte family of Upland, Calif. She was hired in March to help Marcella Bracamonte care for three children ages 11, 4, and 1. In exchange for her work, Stretton was provided room and board.  A few months ago she stopped working and after finally being fired refused to leave the family's home. Not only has she imposed her own demands and requirements on the household but is threatening to sue the Bracamonte's.  (Jun 26, 2014, abcnews.go.com, By SARAH FIGALORA)

In desperation, the Bracamonte's called the police, but they'll do nothing on the grounds that nanny's refusal to leave is a civil matter,

"....generally, once somebody has established residency, you have to go through a formal eviction process."

Had Stretton made it known from the start that she had intentions of establishing residency in the Bracamonte's home they would never have hired her, let alone have allowed her to darken their doorway.   Stretton is obviously a conniving, mean-spirited, vindictive soul, and say the Bracamonte's, she has made our home a living hell.

According to St. Augustine, like all human beings, Stratton is 'cracked.'   Consider the love of human beings for all the vain,

"....and poisonous things that cause so many heartaches, troubles and fears, our joy in conflict, strife and war, and so many plots of enemies and sycophants.   Consider such things as fraud and theft and robbery; the pride we take in depravity, our envy and ambition. cruelty...murder, lawlessness and lust.  Think of all the shameless passions of the impure: fornication...adultery, incest...unnatural sins, rape and countless other filthy acts.  Consider the evil we do to each other: calumnies...cheating, lies...false witness, violence against persons and property.   Indeed, if anyone were to left to live as he pleased and to do what he desired, he would go through practically the whole gamut of sins listed above...those which I wrote down and others I forgot to mention."  (City of God, 22.22)

In our morally debauched society, the wicked nanny is but one of millions of morally disordered, rootless Americans produced by decades of evolutionary humanist (socialist/progressive) indoctrination in our schools, media, and culture.

In his essay, “The New Man,” Dr. Pedro Blas Gonzalez, Professor of Philosophy at Barry University, Miami, Florida, describes America’s rootless man as the product of nihilists. Nihilists have successfully depersonalized Westerners and Americans. They have destroyed the dignity, personhood and capacity for self-knowledge of vast numbers of Americans. Today this new man,

“…is a finely tuned twenty-first century automaton. What greater efficacy than to devoid man of his sense of dignity in order to rule over him? The new man is a hollow entity whose entrails have been removed by guilt and self-doubt. Yet the new man does not notice this, for he has no internal reservoir from where to draw any moral or spiritual strength.” (OrthodoxyToday.org, 2009)
 
The New Man is a mutation, said Seraphim Rose. He is a rootless entity,

“…discontinuous with a past that Nihilism has destroyed, the raw material of every demagogue’s dream; the “free-thinker” and skeptic, closed only to the truth but “open” to each new intellectual fashion because he himself has no intellectual foundation; the “seeker” after some “new revelation,” ready to believe anything new because true faith has been annihilated in him; the planner and experimenter, worshipping “fact” because he has abandoned truth, seeing the world as a vast laboratory in which he is free to determine what is “possible”; the autonomous man, pretending to the humility of only asking his “rights,” yet full of the pride that expects everything to be given him in a world where nothing is authoritatively forbidden; the man of the moment, without conscience or values and thus at the mercy of the strongest “stimulus”; the “rebel,” hating all restraint and authority because he himself is his own and only god; the “mass man,” this new barbarian, thoroughly “reduced and “simplified” and capable of only the most elementary ideas, yet scornful of anyone who presumes to point out the higher things or the real complexity of life.” (Seraphim Rose, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age)

Dr. Gonzalez concurs,

The wisdom contained in history is ruled out by the new man” who has been taught that “he is the stuff of the future. Thus, the past must be obliterated to make room for the designs of social-engineers..”(ibid)

This rootless entity actually believes that he is evolving forward toward greater and greater spiritual perfection. But all of this is a great lie, a massive deception, said Rose:
 
It is of course no secret to contemporary philosophers and psychologists that man himself is changing in our violent century, under the influence, of course, not only of war and revolution, but also of practically everything else that lays claim to being “modern” and “progressive.” We have already cited the most striking forms of Nihilist Vitalism, whose cumulative effect has been to uproot, disintegrate, and “mobilize” the individual, to substitute for his normal stability and rootedness a senseless quest for power and movement, and to replace normal human feeling by a nervous excitability. The work of Nihilist Realism, in practice as in theory, has been parallel and complementary to that of Vitalism: a work of standardization, specialization, simplification, mechanization, dehumanization; its effect has been to “reduce” the individual to the most “Primitive” and basic level, to make him in fact the slave of his environment, the perfect workman in Lenin’s worldwide “factory.” (Seraphim Rose, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age)

In this light, Lloyd Marcus, the Tea Party Movement's most prominent African American, has reason to lament:

"Today, far too many Americans see no shame in living on government assistance or scamming the system....Even wIorse, the Administration portrays getting on welfare as the honorable thing to do. Dear Lord, what kind of nation are we becoming?  An unprecedented 47 million Americans are on food stamps which is riddled with fraud. The Obama Administration has added over 10,000 new oppressive job-killing regulations. Consequently, 90 million are unemployed and on unemployment which is also riddled with fraud. Here's another first for America, over 11 million are receiving disability benefits; riddled with fraud. Clearly, many believe working is for suckers when the government is handing out freebies.....In his War on Achievers, Obama used his bully pulpit to deflate business owners by saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that." Obama and his operatives use compassionate sounding terms such as "social justice" and "income inequality" to justify the government confiscating the earnings of achievers and redistributing it to non-achievers to win their votes. Despicable."  (A heartbreaking unspoken consequence of Obama, Lloyd Marcus, Renew America,June 27, 2014)

Under the pretense of compassion, fairness, equality, 'rights,' universal healthcare, fighting poverty and global change, protecting 'gay rights' (sodomy), and allowing unborn babies to be brutally dismembered on behalf of 'choice'  America's 'broken' law gives the power of death to the self-serving, morally corrupt few over the lives of the inconvenient and unwanted.   It forcibly takes property from one person and gives it to another.  In taking the wealth and property of the many and giving it to a favored few, broken law gives conniving, mean-spirited darkened souls like Diane Stretton the idea that she can move into and take over the Bracamonte's property, to impose herself on them, to terrorize and make shameless demands of them while she lives a parasitic life of ease at their expense. 

Fundamentally, broken law is legalized murder and plunder and  is common to socialists, communists and other nihilists of the totalitarian bent of mind who see crimes against humanity together with forcing everyone to be miserable as a way of putting an end to all conditions that make for covetousness and envy, their own first of all.

The Scourge of Covetousness and Envy

Whether the Founders were individually Christian or not they fully recognized that in light of man's sin nature, covetousness/envy could easily become a driving force in politics, so they designed the Constitution to protect our God-given rights of life, liberty and property from the grasping hand of a tyrannical government.  They never intended for law to assume the role of Big Brother granting man-invented 'rights' 'privileges' and 'entitlements' to certain favored groups or individuals:

"The Constitution is a chart of negative liberties, (it) says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government must do on your behalf." (Who Poses the Greater Threat? Walter Williams, Townhall.com, Mar. 3, 2010)

They also affirmed that as all men are created spiritual equals in the eyes of the One God in three Persons, then life, worth, dignity and other unalienable property rights are conferred upon each human person at conception.  

In "Property," published in The National Gazette on March 29, 1792, James Madison clearly defines the meaning of a person’s God-given spiritual property, some of its’ temporal manifestations and the meaning and intent of just government as opposed to unjust government:

"He has a property....in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them."  "He has a property...in his opinions and the free communication of them."  "He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them." "He has property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person."

Property is,

"....a man's land, or merchandize, or money (and)  as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties or his possessions."

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort:

"This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own." (Samuel Rutherford, Lex Rex; lexrex.com)

The Constitution therefore, recognizes the divine nature of man's creation, that man is a person endowed by his personal Creator with spiritual property, a divine right to life and liberty, and the means of acquiring and possessing property. Hence our Republic recognizes Law is unchangeable because the Creator of "we the people" (and everyone else) is the Lawgiver:

"It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated." (James Madison, Speech at the Virginia Convention, December 2, 1829)

How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust?

"A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law." (Martin Luther King, Excerpts from his Letter from the Birmingham Jail, Apr. 16, 1963)

In keeping with Christian thought, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin connect personhood, virtue, self-control and property rights with morally-ordered freedom:

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin, quoted in Born Liberal Raised Right, p. 15)

Conversely, they connect corruption, anarchy, and barbarism with man's sin nature:

"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If "Thou shalt not covet" and "Thou shalt not steal" were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free." (John Adams, A Defense of the American Constitutions, 1787, patriotpost.us)

Today the uniquely Christian view of man as a person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons together with the Biblical moral convictions underlying the cultural order have been undermined to the point of near collapse. 

Darwinism in particular and evolutionary science in general have destroyed the foundations of the Christian view of man, thereby reducing “we the people” to conscious products of evolution and by extension making our Constitution a worthless piece of trash.

There are two fundamentally different conceptions of science----one that is scientific and one that is not:

"In the first, science properly deals with reality, mostly in its physical manifestations.  It tries to understand the things that are---what they are, how they work and why..."  The other notion of science---the unscientific one---is an endeavor to....gain power...."   "Man becomes the ultimate master through the exercise of his will by the instrument of science; he makes all things according to his desires (and) assigns to them his purposes, and they have purposes only insofar as he assigns them.  They are nothing in themselves......This is science as ideology, as the construction of a false reality."    (Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior is Changing Everything, Robert R. Reilly, p. 117)

Evolutionary science, whether secular atheist, occult New Age, or 'Christian,' is the science of ideology, the will of fallen man exercised by the instrument of science.   By 1870 Christopher Langdell, dean of Harvard School of Law was exercising his will through the instrument of science by teaching that the nihilistic principles of evolution must be applied to the written opinion of judges. The conclusion was inescapable:

Law was not what the Constitution said it was but what judges said it was. In other words, there was no longer an objective base; the absolutes dissolved along with the supposed demise of the Creator.” (Erwin Lutzer)

Evolutionary scientism rejects miraculous Special Creation and the Fall and teaches instead an inverted exegesis positing billions of years of evolutionary ascent of life from primordial matter, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.

This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism (no right way, no wrong way) because if men were once something else, star dust or a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are men going to become something else but nothing can be said about transgender, ‘gay,’ pederasty, pedophilia, and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by a Big Bang which may or may not involve a god-word shaped and controlled by the will of the theologians who are its' inventers.

As evolutionary scientism is naturalistic it ultimately lacks a source for life, consciousness, and soul, thus whether atheist, New Age or 'Christian' all permutations are merely different expressions of anti-human nihilism which makes man equal to or lower than the nonhuman.

This serves as a license for all manner of crimes against humanity, especially the weakest, the hated, envied, despised and inconvenient.  Between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, evolutionary naturalism led to the brutal murder of in excess of 160,000,000 "unevolved" men, women, and children.

Today, naturalism and evolutionary thinking are taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience, especially within the progressive liberal community. Evolution not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines as well as occult New Age spirituality and all permutations of liberal theology and its primary doctrine evolution.

Progressive liberal theology has stripped the Bible of its miraculous, historical and literal elements, thereby allowing it to be considered as one book of myths among many. No longer is it generally believed that the Bible, especially the Genesis account is the objective revelation of the Triune God, thus man is not a sinner, neither is he a person because he is a conscious product of evolution. In the end, theological liberalism is nothing more than nihilistic humanism in theological dress.

Throughout America nihilist evolutionary conceptions trumpeted by the will of man as 'scientific fact' have finally reached saturation point in our government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, and increasingly within the whole body of the Church. This is why apostasy, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, pornography, drug use, mass murder, decadence, sodomy, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

America's Dying Soul

"No one needs to see films such as The Wolf of Wall Street or American Hustle to know that America is amputating its soul. Those who remember post-Christian Nazi Germany are grieving. They look at America’s demoralized church and ask: Can these bones live?  Ezekiel 37."    (Vishal Mangalwadi, founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement, an Indian philosopher and social reformer and author of The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization)

The soul of America is being amputated under the onslaught of Darwinism and theological liberalism with the following consequences:

1.The abandonment of the transcendent Triune God means abandonment of His eternally unchanging Law together with the unique Christian definition of person and everything built upon it---spiritual property, unalienable rights, and morality---making our founding documents fit for the trash bin of history.

2. Abandonment of  immutable truth and absolute morality means that narcissistic self-centered men and women like Obama and his minions and the wicked nanny are the measure of all things. This is why no one is safe, nor is their property, for our so-called political leadership, opinion and culture shapers, jurists, academics, bureaucracy and increasing numbers of theologians are self-righteous hypocrites, liars, crazies, and psychopaths. Some of them believe they are evolving into supermen, transcended masters and gods.

3. Abandonment of our exclusive Christian worldview has allowed our nation to disintegrate into moral and religious pluralism. Historically, pluralism has been a sign that tectonic change is on the horizon. In this case, it presages America's devastating transformation from its' Christian heritage to Sharia, superstitious paganism and irrational occult pantheist New Age, known politically as Agenda 21 but really spiritualized communism in a green dress.

4.  Powerful, influential occult New Agers, many of them under the influence of spirit guides (demons) are honeycombed within the UN, non-governmental agencies, and at every level of our government, academia, entertainment, media, and elsewhere and have been working towards this sea-change for a very long time now. In their eyes, the disintegration of America not only heralds the death of the hated Old Order (Christian based civilization) but the long-awaited quantum leap in evolution, the catastrophic chaos that utterly destroys the old order and ushers in the utopian 'golden age' of Aquarius.

The Way Forward

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who repented and returned to the Christian faith and his personhood (spiritual being) in the Gulag, sets out a spiritual way forward:

“…the primary key to our being or non-being resides in each individual heart, in (its) preference for specific good or evil…this (is) the most reliable key we have. The social theories that promised so much have demonstrated their bankruptcy, leaving us at a dead end. The free people of the West could reasonably have been expected to realize that they are beset by numerous freely nurtured falsehoods, and not to allow lies to be foisted upon them so easily. All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we direct our consciousness, in repentance to the Creator of all. Without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain….We must…recognize the horror perpetrated not by some outside force, not by class or national enemies, but within each of us individually, and within every society. This is especially true of a free and highly developed society, for here in particular we have surely brought everything upon ourselves, of our own free will. We ourselves, in our daily unthinking selfishness, are pulling tight the noose (and) we can propose only a determined quest for the warm hand of God, which we have so rashly and self-confidently spurned. Only in this way can our eyes be opened to the errors of this unfortunate twentieth century and our hands be directed to setting them right.” (Life Under the Lidless Eye, pp. 38-39, Lee Penn, SCP Journal, Vol. 37:1-37:2, 2013)

In other words, evolutionary humanism in its every permutation is a cornucopia of devilish lies from which we must repent.  The Christian God is very much alive and though we are His spiritual image-bearers we are sinners.   In the words of Solzhenitsyn, evil cuts through the heart of every man and woman, bar none.

In his 1974 essay “Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations,” Solzhenitsyn explains that the cure begins quite simply with,

“…..repentance and the search for our own errors and sin. We must stop blaming everyone else (and) always claiming that we alone are in the right. Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord. Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth. For each and every individual. And every trend of social thought.” (ibid)

Why Children Murder their Playmates and Parents

An Ohio mom, who was stabbed by her 13-year-old daughter in the kitchen of their home, has told how her child assaulted her after the girl became obsessed with the fictional character.

I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me and she was wearing a mask, a white mask,' the mom told local news station WLWT." "The mother suffered multiple minor injuries, including a puncture wound on her back. 'She was someone else during the attack,' she said." (Mother attacked by daughter says Slender Man could be to blame, FoxNews.com, June 09, 2014)

 The allegations came to light after two Wisconsin adolescents were charged with the attempted murder of a 12-year-old as a sacrifice to the online demon. Prosecutors allege that Anissa Weier and her friend Morgan Geyster, both 12, stabbed a friend 19 times and left her to die:

"Police say the girls told detectives they wanted to murder the girl after reading tales about Slender Man on the horror website CreepyPasta."

Ideas have Consequences

In our Godless yet "scientifically enlightened" society we are surrounded by two major ideas from early childhood through the end of our lives.  First, we are not persons (spirit/soul) of worth, meaning and value because created in the spiritual image of our Father, the One God in three Persons but rather nothing more than products of evolution.   Second, as we are 'nothing' then our own life and that of everyone else has no worth, meaning, and value.

Darwinism in particular and evolutionary thinking in general has destroyed the foundations of supernatural Christianity and man's personhood (soul/spirit):

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma." (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned people have been pointing to the connections between evolutionary thinking and the spreading epidemic of narcissism, moral insanity, hatred, violence, despair, apathy, paranoia, psychosis and other spiritual pathologies together with the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn, the subversion and perversion of children, and the relentlessly rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use, crime, decadence, homicide and suicide in the 'evolutionized' West.

If Darwin in particular and evolutionary thinking in general is right, then man is 'nothing' and since there is no ultimate fixed meaning or higher purpose to life except what we choose:

" You are born, you suffer, you die — that's it. Perhaps, if you're lucky, you may get recycled as organic manure — but beyond that, you're just a number that happened to come up in the great casino of the universe." (Darwin, Spurgeon and the 'black dog,' Carl Wieland, Creation.com)

Wieland points out that even where Darwin is denied but other evolutionary cosmologies positing billions of years are proclaimed, as both evolutionary theism and progressive creation affirm,

".... hopelessness finds foothold. Any 'god' who condoned millions of years of death, cruelty, disease and bloodshed, certainly cannot be the personal, biblical God of love. And if the Bible got it so obviously wrong about the timing of creation as to mislead hundreds of millions of Christians until the present day, how can we really trust it about our eternal future? John 3:12 (ibid)

Evolutionary thinking as 'evolutionary fact'  has finally reached saturation point in government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, the public arena and increasingly within the whole body of the Church, which is why pathological lying, nihilism, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, mass murder, decadence, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

All of this makes a devilish kind of sense if the personal Triune God Whose Living Words called all things into existence in six days of creation does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose since the evolving universe of matter and energy either created itself from nothing or was enabled toward this end by a god-word as evolutionary theology posits. 

If man is nothing but an excited node of evolution in process of becoming with neither hope of physical resurrection nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world then why not euthanize the elderly? Why should parents not allow their children to daily absorb the violent messages within most video games, rap music, and hard rock? And why ought children brought up on such violence not brutally attack each other and their parents?  Why should sexually-perverted adults not sexually pervert children, toss unwanted babies into trash bins, and use the force of perverted, meaningless law to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others? Why not redefine sodomy, pedophilia, pederasty, bestiality and lesbianism as 'gay' and then marry 'gay' couples in Washington's National Cathedral? (Washington National Cathedral to Wed Same-Sex Couples, Ben Brumfield, CNN, Jan. 9, 2013)

If you are Obama and his Luciferian-Alinsky-minded henchmen, why not trash the Constitution, throw open the borders, divide Americans against each other, disarm Americans and enable jihadi terrorists to work their evil here?

If man is 'nothing' then why not contend — as the powerful pharmaceutical industry and its partisans within the American Psychiatric Association maintain — that dangerous psychotropic drugs are necessary for the control of America's 'epidemic' of mental illnesses caused by bad genes and chemical imbalances?  Since man is 'nothing' and  truth and moral law no longer exists why not call genetic and chemical disorders 'mental illnesses' in order to justify psychotropic substances despite that known adverse reactions associated with them include insomnia, anxiety, agitation, confusion, amnesia, depression, paranoid reaction, psychosis, hostility, delirium, hallucinations, abnormal thinking, depersonalization, lack of emotion, and mania — a dangerous and violence-prone mental derangement characterized by extreme excitement, delusion, and voices speaking into one's mind.

On the link between certain widely prescribed psychotropic drugs, suicide and homicidal violence, Dr. David Healy, a British psychiatrist and author of "Pharmageddon," said in November of 2012:

"Violence and other potentially criminal behavior caused by prescription drugs are medicines best kept secret..." (Prescription-Drug-Induced Violence Medicine's Best Kept Secret? Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 12, 2012)

Healy says this is a global issue, with medical, legal, ethical, and profound public policy dimensions:

"Never before in the fields of medicine and law have there been so many events with so much concealed data and so little focused expertise." (ibid)

One of the leading voices against the 'mental illness' known as ADHD is Dr. Fred Baughman, a pediatric neurologist. Baughman comments,

"(ADHD) is a contrived epidemic, where all 5 million to 6 million children on these drugs are normal. The country's been led to believe that all painful emotions are a mental illness and the leadership of the APA knows very well that they are representing (ADHD) as a disease when there is no scientific data to confirm any mental illness." ("Drugging Them Up," Ch. 2, IndoctriNation, p. 47)

Dr. Peter Breggin, psychiatrist and author of 'Talking Back to Prozac" concurs. Not only does ADHD not exist but,

"...there is great deal of evidence that stimulants cause brain damage with long term use." (ibid, p. 47)

Dr. Bruce Shortt agrees and observes that the prescribing of behavior modifying substances is probably the largest,

"...uncontrolled drug experiment in the history of the world....drugs are being given to children...especially little boys." (ibid, p. 41)

Shortt adds that Ritalin, Adderall, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil and other psychotropic drugs are,

"...being used to drug schoolchildren at rates that are difficult to comprehend...The Drug Enforcement Administration has estimated that 8 million children and adults were on Ritalin in 2000. Prescriptions for Ritalin increased by 700 percent from 1990 to 2001." (ibid, p. 42)

But if humans are 'nothing' then why not use them for drug experiments, especially as it is so profitable? And if you happen to be among the West's financial criminal elite then why not plunder the wealth and resources of unsuspecting Western and American tax-slave 'products of evolution' while offering them socialism, drugs, poverty, misery and Darwinism in return?

In an impeccably researched essay, "Ascendancy of a Financial Criminal Elite," Prof. James Petras details the rise of a criminal consortium which he describes as the super wealthy of America and Europe:

.....the super-wealthy and their families have as much as $32 trillion (USD) of hidden assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenue! This study excluded such non-financial assets as real estate, precious metals, jewels, yachts, race horses, luxury vehicles and so on. Of the $32 trillion in hidden assets, $23 trillion is held by the super-rich of North America and Europe." (Globalresearch.ca/the-ascendancy-of-a-criminal-financial-elite)

The super wealthy are mainly global corporatists and bankers:

"England's leading banks, including Barclay's and a host of others, have been identified as having rigged the LIBOR, or inter-bank lending rate, for years in order to maximize profits. The Bank of New York, JP Morgan, HSBC, Wachovia and Citibank are among scores of banks, which have been charged with laundering drug money and other illicit funds according to investigations from the US Senate Banking Committees. Multi-national corporations receive federal bailout funds and tax exemptions and then, in violation of publicized agreements with the government, relocate plants and jobs in Asia and Mexico." (ibid)

If the living Triune God does not exist and man does not have to account to Him for his actions here in this world then why not, as Donald Kaul suggests, repeal the Second Amendment and declare the NRA,

".... a terrorist organization and make membership illegal.... (I would also raze the organization's headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that's optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that "prying the guns from their cold, dead hands" thing works for me."(Des Moines Register publishes gun-ban column advocating deadly violence against NRA, GOP leaders, Tim Graham, foxnews.com, Jan. 2, 2013)

Tim Graham points out that the so-called "news" media,

"...love to blame conservatives for the declining civility of our democratic discourse, but the hateful venom spewed by supposedly enlightened liberals like Kaul is as vicious as it gets. Publishing death threats is bad enough, but doing so in the name of promoting a more peaceful, compassionate society is beyond sick. But this clown will probably never realize the absurdity of his argument." (ibid)

But why not blame Conservatives and use deadly force against the NRA? Since man is 'nothing' and has no one to fear in this world or the other for what he does in this world then why not,

"...tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control." (ibid)

Dubbing himself the 'antichrist,' it was the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche who saw that the death of the Christian God had already begun to cast its first dark shadows over Europe, and though,

"the event itself is far too great, too remote, too much beyond most people's power of apprehension, for one to suppose that so much as the report of it could have reached them," still its advent was certain, and it was men like Nietzsche, the 'new' Christ who were "the firstlings and premature children of the coming century," the century of the "triumph of Nihilism." (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 44)

Nietzsche was the first apostate Christian to gaze fully upon man's loss of faith and its terrifying consequences. With no living God 'up there' to obstruct his vision, the nihilism (nothingness) he saw was agonizing. As there was no longer any Light from God above, there was only darkness in the hermetically sealed world below. The paralyzing darkness that overtook the mind of the antichrist was spiritual. It was not so much,

"....an exterior phenomenon crowding inward but rather an inner blinding that spread outward." (Ravi Zacharias, p. 27)

This was precisely Nietzsche's point. With the death of the Christian God of Revelation the darkness of objective meaninglessness would penetrate every avenue of thought and life, making life itself unbearable with the consequence of hedonism, abortion, euthanasia, sodomy, suicide, drugs, crime and murder becoming virtues.

Speaking through the writings of the Nietzsche, his spirit guide--the evil spirit Zarathustra---said that because God had died in the 19th century there would follow two terrible consequences beginning in the 20th century. (Romans 1:18)

First, the 20th century would become one of the most evil century's in history, and second, a universal madness (Romans 1:21, 22) would break out and turn the once glorious W. Europe and America upside-down.

With respect to the 20th century, in the wake of the insurrection against the living, personal God of Revelation that began during the Renaissance eventuating in the proclamation of the death of God and cataclysmic eruptions of fire, brimstone and rivers of blood during the 20th century, ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn said the world had never before known,

"...godlessness as organized, militarized, and tenaciously malevolent as that practiced by Marxism. Within the philosophical system of Marx and Lenin, and at the heart of their psychology, hatred of God is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions. Militant atheism is not merely incidental or marginal to Communist policy; it is not a side effect, but the central pivot." (goodreads.com)

In his analysis of Marxist Communism and its' alter ego, scientific materialism, Frank Meyers, an early conservative intellectual concluded that Communism is the state form,

"....taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world." Godless Communism is the "final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries." It is materialist scientism of which, "Communism is the culminating hubris of the Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation. It is scientism gone political." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, pp. 251-252)

In respect of the universal madness foretold by Zarathustra, though apostates and the apostatizing professed themselves wise, their cognitive thought processes would become darkened (vain) and with their conscience dead to sin they would become fools, meaning they would accept and publicly profess incredibly stupid conceptions of themselves (i.e., man is an evolved worm, ape or robot; man is evolving into god).

"And I will give children to be their princes, and the effeminate shall rule over them." Isaiah 3:4

In turning away from the Spirit of God and the truth He has given, children will murder their classmates and parents.  'Wise' males will become effeminate cowards and females mannish. They will be adolescent emotional-tyrants in adult-size bodies: sinister, greedy, spiteful, vindictive, treacherous, back-stabbing sophists. They will celebrate Lucifer (the devil) and in their madness actively seek the way of Luciferian initiation because they will be spiritually blind in regard to total reality. Like demons they will flee from the cross of Jesus but exalt the devil as the first free thinker, the genetic creator of man, the seething energy and angel of evolution. Truth will be lies, evil will be good, unfaithfulness will be faith and the 'wise' will preach and blaspheme from pulpits, exercise political power, enact legislation, and wield broken law to plunder, punish, and ruin.

Zarathustra has been right on both counts. First, apostatizing W. Europe and America, though dotted here and there by small islands of Light, decency and sanity, are today abominations of desolation---darkened, satanically inverted places ruled by the 'wise,' hence boiling over with madness, particularly Hollywood, academia, mainstream media and the highest, most powerful political offices in the land. Second, Nietzsche was made to show the 'wise' what is in store for them by spending the last eleven years of his life insane.

Merciless Ruling Class: Murdering Babies by Dismemberment and Lethal Injection

Writing in, "New York Abortion Bill Allows Shooting Babies Through the Heart With Poison to Kill Them"  Steven Ertelt reports that New York is already the abortion/murder capital of the United States, with practically no oversight of the industry.   Throughout the second trimester, developing babies can be completely dismembered,

"... even when they can feel pain (by) pulling the baby out piece by piece until the mother’s uterus is empty. After the abortion, the abortionist must reassemble the child’s body to ensure nothing has been left inside the child’s mother." (LifeNews.com | 5/20/14 6:28 PM)

What is being demanded now for late-term abortions and will be legalized in New York by the abortion-expanding Women’s Equality Act,  is the death of babies,

"... by sliding a needle filled with a chemical agent, such as digoxin, into the beating heart, before being delivered."

Dismembering babies and disposing of them like so much garbage is common practice in our wicked society where children are routinely initiated into the realms of darkness and unwanted human life is an imposition upon growing legions of the morally bad who now say dismemberment does not go far enough.  What they now want is for fully developed baby's to be lethally injected through their hearts.

While evil cuts through the hearts of every man and woman, bar none, the real source of this evil is an evil-loving left-right confederacy of genetically superior because highly evolved neo-Gnostic 'elitists,'  described by Professor Angelo Codevilla as America’s Ruling Class. 

In “The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It,”  Codevilla, emeritus professor of international relations at Boston University, argues that America’s real divide is between morally decent Americans who still worship the supernatural Triune God and a class of anti-supernatural evolutionary pagans and their theological counterparts who dominate both political parties, academe, Hollywood, science, media and certain seminaries.  They preach from pulpits, run big business, our economy and the country's major institutions and imagine themselves entitled to reshape an America that they regard as composed of un-evolved subhuman hominids.  
 
The Ruling Class believe that science and evolution trump the Revelation of God, and as they are the evolved products of the 'god' Evolution they are science’s authoritative enlightened priests and god-men who pray to themselves,

"... as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image.." (The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It, p. xix)

Like their evil Communist counterpart Big Brother, the Ruling Class are magic thinkers who believe reality is inside their minds.  Respected Conservative Christian writer Frederick J. Hutchinson connects magical thinking with narcissism.  These two spiritual pathologies go together like a dung-beetle on its’ pile.

 Hutchinson characterizes magical thinking with the ridiculous proverb that if a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it, it makes no noise, meaning that if a narcissist did not see or hear the tree fall then it did not fall since whatever the narcissist thinks, covets, envies, hates, or lusts after is the absolute meaning of reality at any given moment.  By extension of this insanity, if a narcissist hates God the Father and claims that He never revealed Himself to man, then He never spoke and does not exist.  If the magic thinker worships science and evolution then so must we all.  If he hates babies they deserve to die and if he resents the innocence of children then their innocence must be drowned in a sewer of depravity. Likewise, if he cannot see, hear, taste, touch, or detect his own soul in any way then souls do not exist. (Restoring History, Hutchinson, pp. 80-81)

Ruling Class magic thinkers are characterized by an inflexible will turned toward evil fueled and  validated by a depraved conscience, the most destructive force in any society.  It is only within this context that we can understand why our once family centered, morally decent Christian-grounded culture of life and moral order increasingly resembles a cross between Sodom and decadent Rome in its death throes.

Our Americanized Sodom-Rome is animated by an evil spirit of negation and rebellion manifest in will to power, self-gratification as highest virtue together with unabashed envy as cause celebre.   This wickedness manifests in 'politically correct' licenses to oppress, subvert, pervert, terrorize and destroy all who are the objects of envy as well as allowing for luxurious parasitic lifestyles, sexual anarchy, legalized plundering (thieving), subverting and perverting our children and many other manifest evils not the least of which is the subterranean river of blood from 60,000,000 unwanted developing human lives running through and soaking our land and crying out to our Heavenly Father.  The blood and perversion of the innocents condemns the merciless tyranny of evil that has over-taken America.

How did it happen that precious human life has become so cheap, worthless and hated that ridding ourselves of unwanted humans is as simple as a visit to a local charnel house/abortion clinic?   How did the sick, twisted Ruling Class attitude replace the Founding generation’s belief that “all men are created equal” because they are the spiritual image bearers of the living, personal Holy Triune God?

Codevilla writes that by the 1820s,

“… J. C. Calhoun was reading in the best London journals that different breeds of animals and plants produce inferior or superior results, slave owners were citing the Negroes’ deficiencies to argue that they should remain slaves indefinitely. Lots of others were reading Ludwig Feuerbach’s rendition of Hegelian philosophy, according to which biblical injunctions reflect the fantasies of alienated human beings or, in the young Karl Marx’s formulation, that ethical thought is “superstructural” to material reality. By 1853, when Sen. John Pettit of Ohio called “all men are created equal” “a self-evident lie,” much of America’s educated class had already absorbed the “scientific” notion (which Darwin only popularized) that man is the product of chance mutation and natural selection of the fittest. Accordingly, by nature, superior men subdue inferior ones as they subdue lower beings or try to improve them as they please….As the 19th century ended, the educated class’s religious fervor turned to social reform: they were sure that because man is a mere part of evolutionary nature, man could be improved, and that they, the most highly evolved of all, were the improvers.” (ibid)

As their numbers grew and their narcissism inflated,

“… so did their distaste for common Americans. Believing itself “scientific,” this Progressive class sought to explain its differences from its neighbors in “scientific” terms. The most elaborate of these attempts was Theodor Adorno’s widely acclaimed The Authoritarian Personality (1948). It invented a set of criteria by which to define personality traits, ranked these traits and their intensity in any given person on what it called the “F scale” (F for fascist), interviewed hundreds of Americans, and concluded that most who were not liberal Democrats were latent fascists. This way of thinking about non-Progressives filtered down to college curricula. In 1963-64 for example, I was assigned Herbert McCloskey’s Conservatism and Personality (1958) at Rutgers’s Eagleton Institute of Politics as a paradigm of methodological correctness. The author had defined conservatism in terms of answers to certain questions, had defined a number of personality disorders in terms of other questions, and run a survey that proved “scientifically” that conservatives were maladjusted ne’er-do-well ignoramuses. “(ibid)

Where the majority of prior generations humbly repented of their sins, under the evil influence of the Ruling Class, today the word 'sin' has all but disappeared from churches, hence throughout our land so that cosmically inflated egos and wills turned toward evil have all but replaced humility.

In his Commentary on Psalm 33/2, 8, St. Augustine notes that a dirty house (depraved conscience) is the miserable condition of all whose pride and inflexible will makes them refuse to face their own conscience lest they be overwhelmed by the wickedness they find there. (Day by Day with Saint Augustine, Donald X. Burt, p. 107)

The self-glorifying Ruling Class are  self-righteous hypocrites, narcissists who refuse to tolerate the knowledge of their own weaknesses, failings, and sinfulness, thus are constantly engaged in sweeping the evidence of their consistent evils under the rug of their own consciousness in order to preserve their carefully constructed public facades. Thus they unceasingly engage in the effort to dress up their inner filth and depravity in an outward appearance of moral purity and superiority.  Because of this they hate the light–---the light of truth and goodness that not only exposes them but penetrates their deceptions. This is why evil has become good and good evil.

Some examples of the satanically inverted 'truth' and 'morality' of the Ruling Class is the murder of babies as woman's equality, the initiation of children into perversity as 'gay' equality, the attempted theft of Bundy's ranch as a 'crime' against the (broken) law of our land and the nonsensical narrative that the universe and everything within it evolved over billions of years, including humans who supposedly evolved first from stardust, chemicals or according to evolutionary theologians, blobs of matter, followed by creeping things, crawling things, swimming things and then knuckle-dragging things, all of which we are authoritatively told to believe is observational science:

"Without strong public resistance, impressionable young children across much of America will soon be taught, among other discredited dogma, that human emissions of carbon dioxide “pollution” are responsible for “global warming.” Also high on the agenda is convincing young children that the atheistic evolution theory — is not only based on “science,” but is the only explanation for life. What opponents call the “brainwashing” will begin as early as kindergarten — at least if the Obama administration and its establishment allies get their way."   (National "Science" Standards Preach Climate Hysteria, Evolution, Alex Newman, The New American, Monday, 19 May 2014)

While Ruling Class hypocrites refuse to see their own persistent wickedness they clearly see and constantly harp upon and gossip, whine and complain about the 'politically incorrect' weaknesses and failings of other people, especially those whom they deeply resent and envy, such as stalwart defenders of the Word of God with focus upon Special Creation, the Christian faction of the Tea Party and all people possessed of the courage of conviction to speak truth to lies.  This is why the calculating dark spirit animating a plague of vicious gossip, eviscerating slander, back-stabbing, scoffing, ridicule, destructive criticism, treachery and betrayal is the murderous spirit of Ruling Class depravity and green-eyed envy shamelessly posing as unbiased news reporting, commentary, entertainment, music, art, politics, Common Core education, sustainable growth, evolution as science, and concerns for the welfare of desert turtles, children, 'gays,' illegals and Muslims.

Since the Ruling Class refuse to acknowledge their own wickedness, they not only hurl vicious, flaming arrows of filth at despised and envied "other" but transfer onto "other" their own personal sins and failures.  In this way, the wicked crucify the human objects of their envy by making them carry an unbearably heavy cross of false guilt---guilt that rightfully belongs to the wicked.  As with all unwanted human life, scapegoats such as faithful Christians and Tea Partiers are sacrificed on the fiery altar of “preservation of self-image” by envy-bitten idolaters.

A wicked will causes evil and suffering

Ultimately, a depraved conscience is the result of a strong will determined to have its’ own way, thus St. Augustine points to a wicked will as the cause of all evil and suffering. This is because its unholy companions are self-gratification (Matthew 4:2-5), self-glorification (Matthew 4: 6-8)  and lust for power and prestige (Matthew 4: 9-11). Thus the wicked will seeks to impose itself upon despised and envied "others" by overt or covert coercion in order to destroy their spiritual virtues and physical property.  This evil is also the result of envy, the most cold-blooded, sadistically evil sin of all, the one that transformed Lucifer into the devil and transforms the Ruling Class into his demonic image-bearers and human tools.

America's Slide into Evil

During his commencement address at Harvard more than thirty years ago, former atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn offended the narcissistically inflated sensibilities of America’s up-and-coming “ruling class” aspirants when he warned that America was tilting towards evil because its’ ruling class and intelligentsia have rejected God and embraced instead atheist evolutionary scientistic-socialism, the politics of destruction. Solzhenitsyn clearly discerned that the godless faith of the ruling class and its apostate clergy had already produced a spiritual, moral, and intellectual sickness responsible for replacing traditional freedom for the good, true and right with destructive freedom that makes society defenseless against human decadence and criminality.  America, said Solzhenitsyn, is traveling the highway to hell taken previously by the Russians.

 What gave his message its unassailable integrity, courage and force is that he spoke from the hellish crucible of the Soviet death camps. His message was:

”Look what happened when a godless regime takes over. Let our experience teach you not to continue on your current path of trying to live without God.” (Alexander Solzhenitsyn: A Prophet to the World, Aug. 2008, heedingthetimes.net)

What We are Losing 

At its' inception, our Constitution was ingeniously crafted, not for depersonalized conscious products of evolution, but for people created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons.  In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person.
 
The term 'person' originated in Christian theologies developmental struggle to comprehend the nature and experience of the supernatural Triune God:
 
"The derivative concept of human personhood is a gift of the Christian faith to culture…” (Stephen P. Stratton, Chapter 14, p. 247, The Self, Paul Vitz & Susan M. Felch, Editors)
 
Building off of this historically unique concept, St. Augustine (AD 354-430) affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the supernatural One God in three Persons then it logically follows that each person is a trinity of being — of soul/spirit and body.

Based on this radical definition of man Church Father Tertullian condemns child sacrifice, saying that no matter how it is rationalized, it is still murder:

"....murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother's blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed." (Tertullian, Apologeticus IX.- 6, 8)

Destroying the unborn is murder because right from inception the developing life is a person created in the divine spiritual image of the One God in three Persons.

Whether the Founders were individually Christian or not, there was among them a strong Christian consensus that as all men are persons created as spiritual equals in the eyes of God, then life, property, worth, dignity and other unalienable rights are conferred upon each person at conception.  For example, freedom of religion and speech are the temporal manifestations of a person’s God-given spiritual property of conscience and reason while a person is uniquely free because his spirit can spiritually transcend the physical matter of his own body to access the supernatural dimension as Paul affirms:
 
"Now the Lord is Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." (2 Cor. 3:17)
 
Therefore, as all men are created spiritual equals in the eyes of the Triune God, then life, property, worth, dignity and other unalienable rights are conferred upon each human person by His Creator at conception.

In "Property," published in The National Gazette on March 29, 1792, James Madison clearly defines the meaning of a person’s God-given spiritual property, some of its’ temporal manifestations and the meaning and intent of just government as opposed to unjust government:

"He has a property....in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them."  "He has a property...in his opinions and the free communication of them."  "He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them." "He has property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person."  (The Heritage Foundation)

Property is,
 
"....a man's land, or merchandize, or money (and)  as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties or his possessions."
 
Government is instituted to protect property of every sort:
 
"This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own." (Samuel Rutherford, Lex Rex; lexrex.com)
 
Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar affirms that the Christian gift  of personhood gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," and this is,
 
"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, pp. 12-13)

The Constitution therefore, recognizes the divine nature of man's creation, that man is a person endowed by his personal Creator with spiritual property, a divine right to life and liberty, and the means of acquiring and possessing property. Hence our Republic recognizes Law is unchangeable because the Creator (John 1:1) is the unchanging Lawgiver Who is the same today as yesterday and for all eternity:

"It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated." (James Madison, Speech at the Virginia Convention, December 2, 1829)

With the rejection of our wholly-other Creator and six day Special Creation in favor of occult pagan evolutionary narratives and either no God, or sock-puppet deities that 'create' evolutively as evolutionary theism and its counterpart progressive creationism teach, or pantheist conceptions such as the Force, Quantum Void, Brahman, and Omega, Americans have logically rejected His precious gift of personhood and everything good built upon this unique conception..  This happens because evolutionary narratives, whether atheist or theological, are forms of naturalism which cannot by any means account for life, let alone conscious life.  Therefore, by the inner logic of evolutionary narratives, Americans have made themselves into the walking dead; broken cisterns that hold no living waters. (Jeremiah 2:13)

In the eyes of the Ruling Class "we the people" are no longer persons created in His spiritual image but rather conscious products of evolution, which makes us less than nothing.   It follows then that our unalienable rights and the unchanging Law on which the Constitution is grounded are as devoid of meaning and worth as we are.  Since this is the case then why not destroy unwanted human life?  Why not spill its' blood in sacrificial rites as Satanist cults already do right here in America?   Why not rape our children's minds and souls as wicked 'sex' educators do, forcibly steal our personal property, destroy our economy and kill unwanted human life as quickly and efficiently as possible?

Spiritual evil is destroying our dechristianized nation and rapidly transforming it into a  barbaric pagan society where depersonalized beings do whatever appears to work in pursuit of self-gratification.   Where pagans burned babies, children, animals and even adults to death on the altars of Moloch and Cronus, depersonalized Americans slaughter them in butcher shops run by merciless monsters like Kermit Gosnell, the executioner who sadistically murdered the unwanted and illegitimately conceived babies of self-gratifying Americans.

In 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death on the altars of self-serving idolatrous men and women.

The actual rite of child sacrifice at Carthage has been graphically described by Diodorus Siculus:

"There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)

Plutarch, a first and second century A.D. Greek author, adds to the description:

"...the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people." (ibid)

Idolatry Gives Birth to Death

"....after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. James 1:15

The beginning of idolatry is desire for self-glorification which together with self-gratification and lust for power and prestige demonstrates preference for one's self instead of God and neighbor (and unwanted human life).  Just as no violation of the Law of God can occur without one first being an idolater, envy/covetousness and murder are its' final results, for where self-glorification and self-gratification are primary then our Lord, the source of life, Truth, and Law as well as our brethren count for nothing because cosmically inflated Ruling Class 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.

Pride, envy/covetousness drove Cain to murder Abel; Judas to betray Jesus Christ God incarnate, the source of life, soul/spirit, Truth and Law and Nimrod, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, Teilhard De Chardin and the Ruling Class  to 'murder' the Christian God, hence the personhood of His image bearers.

And this is the judgment: because the light has come into the world and men loved darkness rather than the light: for their works were evil.” John 3: 19   

Every step of the systematic downfall of America has been led by arrogant, defiant, God-hating narcissists who have deliberately fostered self-gratification, the breakdown of the family, the murder of the unborn, subversion and perversion of our children, hatred, sexual anarchy, and an entitlement mentality among Americans so that today narcissism and magical thinking are at epidemic proportions at every level of society.

Dr. Carl Raschke is an internationally known writer and academic scholar who for the past decade has been researching and explaining the effects of America’s apostasy from God and its’ corollary, narcissism and magical thinking, which Raschke combines into what he calls a Satanist Mindset.  This mindset is a mystification of the most corrupt passions and inverted values of magical thinkers.   It is the spiritual Frankenstein,

“…created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God.” (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

 A Satanic Mindset has gained a virtual chokehold on the levers of power and influence from the White House to Hollywood, academia, certain corporations, the media, the Supreme Court, Congress, and apostatizing seminaries and pulpits.

Our Only Hope

Solzhenitsyn holds out hope, the only hope, to a weary, spiritually disconsolate people.  In his 1983 Templeton Prize address, “Men Have Forgotten God,” he stated,

All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we redirect our consciousness, in repentance, to the Creator of all; without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain.”  

"Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy." (Mt 5:7)

In this light we can see why early Church Fathers admonished their congregations to search themselves for envy and its root cause, idolatrous self-centeredness, and repent for,

"Look, I am coming soon! Says the Lord. My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. " "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star." (Rev. 22:12-16)

As the unrepentant God-haters had no mercy for unborn human life, so there will be no mercy for them.  Toward all who reject the truth and follow evil there will be wrath.  He shall say to all merciless idolaters that shall be on his left hand:

"Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels." Matthew 25:41

America's Sauruman and Shadow-Bred Orcs

In reaction to the essay, "Occult Evolution: Antediluvian, Babylonian and Modern Expressions,"  certain highly offended correspondents of a quickly fading conservative and Christian orientation let me know that the essay is nothing more than unscientific foolishness, while others wrote that there is no attack upon Special Creation due to the fact that most scientifically enlightened people no longer believe what to them is a book of man-made myths.  In other words, rather than the attack being the program of spiritually darkened, disordered souls falling ever further away from their Heavenly Father, the so-called attack exists only within the minds of unscientific anti-evolutionists who cling to the idea that God really did speak to Moses and the Prophets.
  
Today much thought and time is spent by concerned Conservatives and Christians in trying to figure out why the church and society are decaying, why apostasy and a spirit of madness and destructive, intolerant speech and behavior works through the church and every level of our society.  It's obvious to these well-intentioned analysts that something is wrong, thus they offer various and sundry prescriptions ranging from the political to the theological. 
 
It is here that the hard-earned wisdom of ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn is particularly powerful and insightful because he speaks from within the hellish crucible of unspeakable torment known as the Gulag system of the former Soviet Union.   Prior to its' descent into the earthly hell brought upon it by occult Renaissance and secular Enlightenment philosophy predicated upon hatred of the Christian God, Russia, though far from perfect, had been a Christian civilization and the breadbasket of Eastern Europe.    
 
During his time in the man-created hell run by demonized humans Solzhenitsyn repented and returned to the Christian God (John 1:1), Jesus Christ God Incarnate, the quickening Spirit, "...the Living One" Who said, " I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades." Rev. 1:18
 
Speaking from a position of humility and abiding sorrow Solzhenitsyn said all of this devastating evil that has overwhelmed and crushed Russia, unleashing rivers of blood, has happened because we have turned away from the Christian God.  Then he set out a spiritual way forward for both the de-Christianized West and America.  He begins by pointing out that,

“…the primary key to our being or non-being resides in each individual heart, in (its) preference for specific good or evil…this (is) the most reliable key we have." (“Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations, 1974)

What Solzhenitsyn means is that man's being, his inner person (living soul and spirit, the seat of reason, conscience and will), are endowments or gifts from the living Word:

"And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground; and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." Gen. 2:7

God formed the body of man from physical matter as the potter does the clay.   To this initial act Job refers when he says,

"Remember, I beseech Thee, that Thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt Thou bring me into dust again?" Job 10:9

God teaches us that He formed Adam's body from physical matter and then breathed into it "the breath of life" producing a twofold life, sensual and spiritual.   Here God reveals to us that Adam was a male, not a he-she, and that life is only with Him.  Life does not magically evolve from chemicals or energy resulting from an inexplicable cosmic explosion (Big Bang) which may or may not have been ignited by a deity invented and controlled by evolutionary theologians.  Nor was life seeded on earth by highly evolved extraterrestrials.  In either scenario, mankind did not magically evolve from matter then lower kinds of life forms to higher kinds of life forms over billions of years.

Life is from the living God, thus His breath of life instantaneously became the spirit that quickened Adam, the principle of life within him which as the Lord reveals to us, "is the spirit that quickens." (John 6:63; 2 Cor. 3:6)

We are taught in Proverbs 20:27 that the human spirit is "the lamp of the Lord that sheds light on one's inmost being."    Spirit is the unique property that distinguishes soul from the physical matter of the body.   Spirit is immortal.  It is our God-consciousness and can will, self-reflect and think.    In Biblical thought, spirit allows man to spiritually transcend his physical brain and the natural dimension in order to access the supernatural dimension, thereby allowing him to enter into a personal relationship with the Spirit of God. Through this relationship, man's spirit is cleansed and regenerated over time, thus enabling him to more perfectly orient the manner of his existence in this world in preparation for eternity.

After God placed the spirit within the body of Adam the combination of these instantaneously produced a third part, his soul, thus Adam became a living soul.  A human life is a living soul which informs inert matter, thus a body without a soul is no more than a mass of cells that would quickly disintegrate.

The soul is our self-conscious part, it is the seat of our emotions (which proceed from the senses of the body).  It is "who you are."  Soul allows communication between body (sense-part) and spirit (God-consciousness). (Luke 1: 46-47)  Early Church Father Tertullian describes the soul as the covering for spirit and the body that of the soul.

 God made Adam good, but not perfect, because He well-knew the great obstacle to perfection: abuse of will in the choice of good and evil.  Perfection must wait until men have passed the danger of abusing His gifts, thereby falling as the sinful angels had done before them.  Thus Adam was made good, and before he fell there was perfect harmony between his three natures, hence he knew nothing of the ceaseless strivings and disordered emotions (pride, impatience, anger, boredom, greed, lust, hate, covetousness) of spirit and body that have been the daily experience of fallen men since the disobedience of Adam and Eve.

In eternity (Paradise), the spirit of the redeemed will once again predominate. Perfect harmony will be restored, but this time with spirit once again elevated to the throne we shall, by the grace of God, become conscious of glorious powers which we can now neither apprehend nor imagine.  In place of the soul with its disordered passions and fallible, deceptive, inconsistent, illogical reasoning, our Lord's redeemed children shall be gifted with glorious powers, perfect peace and unerring perception of the Truth and  Righteousness  which is the prerogative of untainted spirits.

 In the meantime, man can in no way rectify what is wrong with himself.  He cannot save himself by way of evolutionary transformism, transcendental meditation, or technology.   Only Jesus Christ, the Physician of our souls can cure us.  This is why, even in the case of those who have been born again, meaning their spirits are being cleansed and regenerated, the intellectual faculty is still so incompetent that though such people possess Truth in Divine Revelation they are nevertheless, as Paul tells us, able for the present to know and understand it only in part.

Speaking from his own experience, when Solzhenitsyn said the primary key to our being or non-being resides in each individual heart in its preference for specific good or evil he means that when men choose as he did, to fall away from the Revelation of the Word made flesh, a process of disintegration, of downward-spiraling decay sets in eventually resulting in moral imbecility and that situation described in Scripture as "God hands them over." At this point God gives man what he wants by departing from him entirely, an action that results in spiritual death, which in turn results in a depraved-conscience and disordered thought-processes  given to evil.   The one given over is no longer a spiritual being but a blood and soil man such as the Nazis and Communists were, a spiritually dead natural man whose life is only by the life of his soul and its disordered passions.

The soulish intellect of the natural man is not merely fallible but the most dangerous of all gifts from God unless guided by the Spirit of God.  It is a deceitful instrument at best, capable of calling evil good, good evil, male female, and 2+2=5 as Big Brother did.  The blinding pride and inflexible will of natural man makes matters much worse and often ends with him becoming  subject to and animated by the powers of darkness, as was the case with Nietzsche, Karl Marx, Stalin, Hitler and the legions of demonized Bolshevik, Communist and Nazi 'Orcs' who brutally murdered in excess of 160,000,000 men, women and children.  
 
Part of J.R.R. Tolkien's genius was his ability to portray the character and nature of evil in its' stomach-churning, decaying ugliness.  With respect to natural men given over to evil and subject to the devil, Tolkien paints them in brutish, shocking detail as the Orcs.   The Orcs are tortured, corrupted elves, the slaves of Sauron who are now the "walking dead" citizens of Orthanc under the strict command of Saruman:

The Shadow that bred them can only mock, it cannot make: not real new things of its own,” Frodo said to Sam. “I don’t think it gave life to the orcs, it only ruined and twisted them; and if they are to live at all, they have to live like other living creatures. Foul waters and foul meats they’ll take, if they can get no better, but not poison.” (Tolkien, The Return of the King, 190)
 
Orcs are animated by the evil spirit of Sauron, thus there is no good left in them, hence they are full of lies, lust, covetousness, greed, and envy.   This is why they most eagerly cannibalize each other in gratification of disordered passions as well as eat the man-flesh of the children of Iluvatar (Quenya for "the Father of All," more commonly referred to as Eru, the Creator of everything).  The spiritually virtuous children of the Father of All are the greatest objects of the hate and burning envy of the spiritually dead Orcs.  Indeed, Orcs despise all things of Iluvatar---His Word, His creation, His gift of life and intellect, as well as true Truth, beauty and virtue-- and instead glory in the worldview of demons: the godless universe of matter, psychic energy and animated powers. As Tolkien explained in The Hobbit:
 
"Now goblins are cruel, wicked, and bad-hearted. They make no beautiful things, but they make many clever ones. They can tunnel and mine as well as any but the most skilled dwarves, when they take the trouble, though they are usually untidy and dirty. Hammers, axes, swords, daggers, pickaxes, tongs, and also instruments of torture, they make very well, or get other people to make to their design, prisoners and slaves that have to work till they die for want of air and light. It is not unlikely that they invented some of the machines that have since troubled the world, especially the ingenious devices for killing large numbers at once, for wheels and engines and explosions always delighted them. (Tolkien, The Hobbit, 60)

 In this light then, who are Obama, Hillary Clinton, hostile dogmatic Darwinists/evolutionists, various liberal talking-heads,  "gay" leaders and communist agitators but types of Saruman, the servant of Sauron who weaves and spins lies, stirs up trouble, and enflames the disordered passions of Shadow-bred Orcs who are commanded to steal, destroy, pervert, dehumanize, and pollute?

This brings us back to Solzhenitsyn.  Once more speaking from his personal experience, Solzhenitsyn explains that the Western and American cure begins quite simply with,

“…..repentance and the search for our own errors and sin. We must stop blaming everyone else (and) always claiming that we alone are in the right. Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord. Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth. For each and every individual. And every trend of social thought.” (ibid)
