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)

Envy: The Hideous Spirit Fueling Equality Mongering

In "Stop Equality-Mongering Before It Destroys Us," Matthew Cochran argues that as a concept, equality has been effective in curbing abuses of authority. For example, we no longer "divide our citizens into peasant and lord or master and slave, for example. Those with power and authority can be brought before a judge and answer to the same law as those they govern." Over time however, human-generated corruption crept in and today, by and large, invocations of equality are merely used to ward off good judgment by generating feelings of offended entitlement that cry either “I’m as good as you” or, perhaps just as common among the social-justice warriors who most regularly abuse the word, “He’s as good as you.” No excellence can be acknowledged,

"... lest others feel ashamed or left out. Some of our most poisonous philosophies have only managed to afflict America under the aegis of this kind of equality. No matter what our differences may be, we are told that these differences make no difference because we are all equal. Yet civilization hinges on the being able to recognize and judge certain differences. When we willfully fail to do so, the natural consequences are dire." (The Federalist, Mar. 23, 2015)

When excellence cannot be acknowledged the underlying sickness is envy: 

"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)

Marching under a banner of "elitism," (we are better than middle-class hominids), scientism, evolution, enlightenment, and faux reason, the spirit of evolutionary Gnostic pagan Progressivism is a deceiver, for in reality its politics are the destructive politics of fools, mockers, sophists and the envy-bitten. Though it brags it is forward-thinking, this hideous spirit has in reality cast America and the West back into the darkness of paganism, moral relativism, polytheism, superstition, and unfettered envy that characterized the Roman Empire as it slowly died. Its' much-vaunted 'change' has resulted in the unmaking of the true spiritual progress of Jesus Christ and his many disciples, one of whom was St. Augustine.

It was as Rome was dying that St. Augustine both revolutionized and brought to a close antiquity's idea of freedom by connecting it with morals. "Thus," he wrote in the City of God, "a good man, though a slave (of Christ Jesus), is free; but a wicked man, though a king, is a slave. For he serves, not one man alone, but, what is worse, as many masters as he has vices."  (Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones, p. 57)

Augustine revolutionized the concept of freedom by connecting it to morals, or as our Founders said, to Virtues. Man, said Augustine, is not a slave to nature (or nature's 'gods') or to nature's laws, as Aristotle claimed. His freedom was a function of both will and moral state. Thus man's will is free to seek Truth and liberty, or conversely, to choose the consuming darkness of willful ignorance and amorality, thus enslaving itself to pride and other vices.

After the manner of St. Augustine, President Andrew Jackson's Secretary of War, Lewis Cass, would much later write:

"....the fate of republican government is indissolubly bound up with the fate of the Christian religion, and a people who reject its' holy faith will find themselves the slaves of their own evil passions and of arbitrary power." (quoted from www.earstohear.net/)

First man is progressively enslaved by his evil passions, then he falls head-first into slavery to sin, a sin-sickness St. Augustine called 'Libido Dominandi.' Thus it is Libido Dominandi that possesses the souls and minds of both Progressive Left insiders (collectivists/statists) and their rabidly zealous 'liberal' camp followers (anarchists).

In a treatise titled, "Leftism as Psychopathy,' John Ray (M.A.; Ph.D.) wrote, "...there (is) a core leftist type — seen at its clearest among Leftist academics and intellectuals. Although such people form only a small fraction of the total population, their influence and their grasp on the levers of power in the media...bureaucracy...universities, and, at times, in politics, makes what they think, say and do very important indeed." It is Ray's contention that this type of person falls within the category of psychopath and sub-clinical psychopath.

The most striking characteristic of the psychopath, notes Ray, is his "moral imbecility" — his breathtaking lack of feeling for other people and his disregard for the rules they live by. They are famous for their utter amorality, lack of remorse, willingness to lie, cheat, steal and kill.

In his analysis of the Progressive Left, Jamie Glazov author of United in Hate wrote,

" The Left habitually attempts to distance itself from its own history and to obfuscate any straightforward analysis of its political motives, goals, and allegiances. In doing so, the Left intentionally blurs its own complicity in the greatest crimes of the twentieth century."  (United in Hate, p.1)

In other words, the Progressive Left speaks with forked tongues and pretends not to know truth. They are double speakers; the evil men of Psalm 140 whose tongues are sharp and poison is under their lips....they set snares for the morally righteous and compass them about with deception. Snares, lies, and deceptions — these are the evil essence of Saul Alinskys' Rules for Radicals among whose students are Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. 

Glazov observes that the Progressive Left dedicates "their lives to erasing individuality — including their own — and becoming part of a group from whose party line they cannot waiver..." In other words, they seek escape from their Creator through creation of what Eric Voegelin termed a 'second reality,' an illusion of annihilation of self through absorption into nature. Hence they are "motivated by the Marxist dream of destroying the world as it is and building a utopia on its ashes..." ( United in Hate, p. 2)

In short, with their greed, malice, hatred, and envy superheated by will-to-power, they seek not only the death of the Immortal, but the destruction of the Created Order so they can build an earthly New World Order. This is Libido Dominandi inflated to the critical stage of the demonic. The Gnostic pagans now tread the same highway to hell taken by Nimrod (Genesis 10-8) who rebelled against God, declared himself both god-man and messiah, and with his adherents — who likewise embraced 'self as god' — attempted to bring heaven to earth (a New World Order) in Babylon.

"The mystery religion of Babylon," notes Tal Brooke, "is the root of all mystery religions, the secret initiations, the exalted priesthoods, and....secret knowledge (gnosis). It has fermented over the centuries into a refined wine...." In short, modernity's Gnostic irreligion's are Christian heresy syncretized with all of the 'secret knowledge' of the world's religions — both past and present — and its' taproot is the 'refined wine' of ancient Babylon. (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, p. 11, SCP Journal, Vol. 29:2-29: 3, 2005)

Envy, said St. Gregory of Nyssa is,

"The passion which causes evil, 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, quoted in Death by Envy, Fr. George RA Aquaro, p. 74)

"Scripture combines envy with jealousy, covetousness and stinginess, into a single concept that is a manifestation of idolatry (narcissism) of self and belief that there is a limited supply of good," wrote Fr. George R. A. Aquaro.

 When we move aside and dig beneath the rationalizations proffered by Gnostic pagan Progressive pan-sexuals, god-men and their slavish media-mouthpieces calling for hate crime laws, redistribution of wealth, universal healthcare, UNESCO's call for teaching grade-school kids to masturbate, and population control schemes outwardly manifested in abortion (choice), eugenics, and multiple sustainable-growth schemes, we'll find diabolical envy squatting there at bottom.

In the final analysis, malice and envy towards God compels man to destroy creation and to annihilate his God-given soul by imagining himself as 'one' with nature. This is the definition of damnation, said Fr. Aquaro. Hell is not a punishment meted out by a hateful God as some would think, but an absolute refusal of a pardon granted all mankind. It is impossible to receive good from a person one envies, and so it is that one cannot be saved if one resents the Holy Triune God. This is the message of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-32 when the elder brother refused to enter the house upon his brother's return. It is also the underlying meaning of CS Lewis's pointed observation that the door to hell will be slammed and locked from inside:

"Come Satan...God is evil..." Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Philosophie de la Misere, pp.200, 201

"...I go sometimes go...To the oak of Wotan....To make a pact with dark forces..." Adolph Hitler, The Solution of the Riddle, Mullern-Schonhausen

"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority...Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds..." Mikhail Bakunin, God and the State, p. 112

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).

Satanism & the Massive Delusion of America's Ruling Class

Obama's progressive friend, Erdogan of Turkey, wants Islam to rule the world, by infiltration and sabotage if possible, and by massive decapitation and slave-taking if the infidels don't surrender:

"In Sweden and France, there’s a good chance they will surrender and obviate the necessity for mass slaughter, but who knows?"   "Having said all that, Erdogan’s mythopoeic claim is genuinely important today -- not because it’s true, but because it represents the delusional world of increasing numbers of Muslims. Obama directly encourages this mass delusion by claiming that “The United States has been Muslim from the founding.’ Whether Our President shares Erdogan’s delusion, or whether he knows he is lying is always up for grabs with Obama. Make your own guess. As the man has said, “You know, sometimes I believe my own bullshit.” (A Fantasy-driven Muslim World can Never Become Modern, James Lewis, American Thinker, Nov. 29, 2014)

Lewis wonders if Obama shares Erdogan's delusion. Perhaps in part, but according to Angelo Codevilla, author of "The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It,"  Obama's delusion is of the mass delusion of the ruling class. 

Codevilla writes that while most Americans pray to the Holy Triune God Who created all men in His spiritual image, Americas' delusional Progressive god-men:

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

 Because the Ruling Class elevate science and evolution above the Revelation of God and reject creation ex nihilo in favor of Darwinism 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 morality and common sense are anathema to them, Codevilla notes that since any:

"....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)

To preserve its' delusional self-conception as highly evolved god-men, the self-worshipping Ruling Class long ago and with great stealth replaced the Holy Triune God with themselves, creation ex nihilo with neo-pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies, the Bible with scientism; faithful, orthodox priests with pseudo- priests of science such as the babbling sophist Richard Dawkins, and the First Commandment with "Thou shall worship no other God but the Ruling Class."

 Though the Ruling Class view themselves as morally pure and faultless, in reality their conscience is depraved, and a depraved conscience is the most destructive force in political, social, economic, and cultural life. This is because though the intellect remains intact, reason is warped and inverted, thus useless for pursuit of the good, the just and the true. In short, guided by a depraved conscience, reason is used to attain whatever is coveted, to punish and destroy whoever stands in the way,  and to preserve carefully constructed glass houses (delusional self-images) at any cost. This is sophistry.

In a penetrating analysis of sophistry, J. Budziszewski observes that the sophists' view of reality is paradoxical because it ultimately denies reality. Sophists are shock troopers of evil says Budziszewski, and according to their satanically-inverted view of reality:

"Man is the measure of all things, but man has no fixed nature. Man measures all things by his words, but words have no fixed meanings. Language is not an instrument for finding truth, but for changing it. Those who can master it, master all. It is a good creed for rogues, and commends itself to tyrants in every age." (What We Can't Not Know, Budziszewski, p. 167)

Sophistry as Religion of Evil

Sophistry is the evil religion of the depraved Ruling Class. Sophistry says autonomous man is a free-thinker, thus the maker of his own truth and morality even though sophistry denies the reality of truth, morality and man's inner person, that is, his soul/spirit.  It says that because man is the uncreated product of evolutionary forces he can unmake and then remake himself. Thus man is free to divinize himself as in days of old.  Moreover, males can be females and females can be males, or they can be androgynous, that is, transgender.

Sophistry's' favorite Scripture is "judge not." The only judgment is the judgment against moral judgment, creation ex nihilo and true conservative principles. The only sin is the idea that sin exists. The only truth is the idea that truth does not exist. Evil is the idea that evil exists. The greatest evil of all however, is to dissent against the Ruling Class.

Sophists are narcissist braggarts who love to boast of their reason, yet reason is actually escape from reason. By way of unreason, arrogant sophists claim that God is dead and evolutionary theory is absolutely true, but sophistry says words have no fixed meaning, thus there is neither true truth nor fixed meaning in sophistry. Therefore, the Triune God is not dead but rather evolutionary theory is, for as it must begin with either the spontaneous generation of something from nothing or something from magically self-created eternally existing matter, then evolutionary cosmologies and progressives are also nothing.

Sophistry is all the rage in contemporary America, even though it prefers longer, more intellectual sounding names to dupe the gullible. Thus for example, it calls itself postmodernism, epistemological relativism, antifoundationalism, pragmatism, situational ethics, sensitivity training, pluralism, secularism, multiculturalism, interfaith, evolutionary humanism, transhumanism, positivism, rationalism, and progressivism.  Peter Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan calls it Satanism:

"Satanism is an atheist philosophy using Satan as a symbol of pride, liberty, and individualism, as did many before us who would not accept the status quo....Since the universe is indifferent to us, we Satanists choose to establish our own subjective hierarchy of values with ourselves as highest among them. Thus atheism moves to what I call I­theism, where we are each our own "gods." We accept the full range of human emotions as healthy, from love to hate, noting both of those are uncommon extremes."  (Lessons from the Church of Satan, Alissa Wilkinson, Christianity Today, Nov. 10, 2014)

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.

America's Brave New Society: an Unreality of Non-self and Madness

For fifteen hundred years, Christendom and then later Protestant America had followed St. Augustine (AD 354-430) in affirming that all men are three part (mind, body, soul) image-bearers of the transcendent Triune God (Gen. 1:27). This historically unique view of man is the foundation of our Constitutional rights and was affirmed by the brilliant French economist, statesman, and author Frederic Bastiat.  Man as God's spiritual image-bearer is the precious gift from God, which includes the physical, intellectual, and moral life:

"He has provided us with a collection of marvelous faculties. And He has put us in the midst of a variety of natural resources. By application of our faculties to these natural resources we convert them into products, and use them. Life, faculties, production – in other words, individuality, liberty, property – this is man (and) these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it. Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place." (Bastiat, "How Evil Works," David Kupelian, p. 8)

Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar, writes that this unique concept of man as God's spiritual image-bearer (Imago Dei) 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 Demise of Imago Dei

For more than eighty years uninformed, unsuspecting Americans have allowed evolutionary atheists and their theological counterparts to define the personal Triune God out of existence and usurp the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo with evolution, thus the uniquely Biblical definition of man on which our Constitutional rights are grounded has been lost.    According to evolutionary cosmology man is not created but rather a dehumanized aspect of the evolving universe of matter and energy.  In this way of thinking, man is either a bio-machine or a human animal evolved from hominids. 

 If man is not God's spiritual image-bearer then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ God Incarnate walked this earth:

"Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if God does not exist, 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." Thus your sense of self becomes illusion, "Reality is nonself...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)

Jesus Christ to Buddha,

"...you took God away (and) your espousal of an absence of self is the most unique and fearsome claim you made." (The Lotus and the Cross: Jesus Talks with Buddha, Ravi Zacharias, pp. 59, 67)

Life and conscious being (self) are only with the living God of Revelation (John 1), the creator and upholder of the life and being (soul/spirit) of men. But if He does not exist, it logically follows that there is no ultimate source for life, conscious being (self), meaning and purpose; or for the sanctity of human life, worth, dignity, individual liberty and personal property. Without the God of Revelation unalienable (God given) human rights are as meaningless as America's founding documents and the two sexes He created.

In this light we can see that evolutionary thinking is not of the Holy Triune God but is rather the worldly wisdom of arrogant, defiant, foolish men. It is earthly, depraved, stupid, unspiritual and demonic.  It is hell-derived wisdom that leaves in its wake chaos, brokenness, madness, division, strife, death, and destruction. 

So welcome to America's Brave New Society, the unreality of non-self and madness where everything---no matter how stupid and depraved---is now possible.

America's Rising Tyranny of Evil

In "The President Who Has Done the Most Damage" Dennis Prager writes that never before has he ever written or broadcast that our country is being seriously damaged by a president. So it is with great sadness that I write,
 
"....that President Barack Obama has done and continues to do major damage to America. The only question is whether this can ever be undone. This is equally true domestically and internationally." (Townhall.com,  Oct 29, 2013)    
 
According to Prager, Obama has mired the country in unprecedented levels of debt: about $6.5 trillion dollars in five years while with his Affordable Care Act he has made it impossible for hundreds of thousands, soon millions, of Americans to keep their individual or employee-sponsored group health insurance. He has stymied American medical innovation with an utterly destructive tax on medical devices and caused hundreds of thousands of workers to lose full-time jobs because of the health care costs imposed by Obamacare on employers. His Internal Revenue Service uses its unparalleled power to stymie and punish political dissent and his ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. No one has taken responsibility.
 
Among presidents in modern American history, Obama has been a uniquely divisive force.  Rather than helping heal racial tensions, he has exacerbated them:
 
"He should have been reassuring black Americans that America is in fact the least racist country in the world (instead)  he echoed the inflammatory speech of professional race-baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. He has also divided the country by economic class, using classic Marxist language against "the rich" and "corporate profits."     
 
From the time of the Sumerians, people all around the world have believed there is a war between forces of good and forces of evil. They believed the forces of evil work through people whose work it becomes to lead men into temptation and evil.  

 While the dualism underlying this belief is only partly true since evil exists within every man rather than just some, it is nevertheless true that from the time of Nimrod to our own, evil intentioned people have willfully led other people into sin and evil and in fact receive unholy satisfaction in doing so.
 
From its' inception, the implementation of a socialistic New World Order (global totalitarianism) has necessitated force, terror, Big Lies, revisionist history, psychological manipulation, the sexual perversion and subversion of children, and according to Karl Marx's anarchist comrade Bakunin, unleashing the devil in mankind:

"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)

The Satanic revolt, like orthodox Christian faith is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of lies and envy, the author of rebellion, and the revelator of secrets.

Satanic revolt is war against the Trinity...the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which in Bakunin's words are the "cursed and fatal principle of authority." Thus it proclaims the reign of moral disorder and nothingness, though a nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of moral disorder personified....the dark Lord of this world.

The sentiment of the revolt is Satanic pride:

" which spurns subjection to any master whatever, whether of divine or human origin." (Bakunin, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 63)

What all of this means is that contemporary hard-core leftists, socialists, progressives, communists and their fellow travelers such as Obama and his progressive minions are ideological heirs of the Satanic revolt that began as a rebellion against the God of Revelation and Christian theism as far back as the Renaissance eventuating in the proclamation of the death of the Christian God and cataclysmic eruptions of fire, brimstone and rivers of blood in the 20th century. 

America's revolutionaries are part of a program of psychological manipulation and terrorism utilized by Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin and the Communists after they seized control of Orthodox Christian Russia and put into practice long-term plans to abolish on a vast scale every vestige of belief in and commitment to the God of Revelation, family, morality, private property and other signs of “the capitalist petite Bourgeoisie."  Thus in the tradition of Trotsky, Lenin, and Stalin, they deliberately lead men into temptation and evil:

The Modern Liberal will invariably (and) inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. When I say the Modern Liberal is morally and intellectually retarded at the level of the five-year old child, it is not hyperbole: its diagnosis.” (Evan Sayet, The Kindergarten of Evil, evansayet.com)
 
Satanic revolutionaries want us to sin so we'll disintegrate into dehumanized socially destructive slaves of unfettered libido who will self-destruct even as they actively participate in the destruction of our own culture and its' life-and-freedom sustaining institutions. 
 
The success of their diabolical program can be seen everywhere, from dying and apostatizing churches to the casually accepted dismemberment of babies on behalf of a woman's "right to choose" to the dysfunction and pornographic filth broadcast into our homes on a daily basis via TV and internet to youth-affirming gender-bending and obscene 'gay' pride parades featuring nudity, sodomy and worse.
 
An entire class of Americans exist today who are morally disordered, sexually corrupt, ignorant, unable to spell or reason and see nothing wrong with lives of parasitism, prostitution, violence and lawlessness.   For example, in "The High Cost of 'Free," Lloyd S. Pettegrew and Carol A. Vance report that in the Denver arena where Mr. Obama gave his DNC 2008 acceptance speech,

"...a woman in the audience became overwhelmed by the speech and said that she no longer needed to worry if she could make her car or mortgage payments because he would take care of it for her. In Cleveland, a woman claimed that she was going to vote for President Obama again because he gave her a free cellphone (along with a litany of other entitlement giveaways)."  (Ludwig von Mises Institute, June 5, 2013)

There is no 'cash tree' growing in Washington D.C. yielding the billions of dollars handed out by politicians for 'free' cell phones, 'free' house payments, 'free' education, 'free' condoms,  'free' abortions, 'free' healthcare, 'free' sex-change operations and other 'entitlement' giveaways.    Money doesn't grow on trees---it has to be earned the hard way by people who work.

The allure of "free" is so powerful, so overwhelmingly seductive that an alarming number of people, both citizen and noncitizen alike, willfully choose to become wards or 'slaves' of Big Brother's entitlement/welfare state rather than captain their own destiny:

"Economist Nicholas Eberstadt of the American Enterprise Institute believes that Americans have become a nation of takers, threatening the self-reliance that has long characterized our national psyche. Eberstadt (2012, p. 4) presents data showing that entitlement payments to Americans, since 1960, have risen annually by 9.5 percent..... This has resulted in 49 percent of American households receiving one or more government transfer benefits (Eberstadt 2013); this amounts to 18 percent of all personal income and a burden of $7,400 for every American." (ibid)

Writing in agreement, Lloyd Marcus, the Tea Party Movement's most prominent African American, laments that decades of socialist/progressive indoctrination in our schools, media and culture, plus six years of Obama, has yielded a devastating unspoken consequence. It is the loss of who we use to be as Americans:

"Today, far too many Americans see no shame in living on government assistance or scamming the system....Even worse, 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,' fighting poverty, protecting 'gay rights' and the environment, and granting 'choice' to abortion activists our 'broken' law forcibly takes property from one person and gives it to another.  It takes the wealth of the many and gives it to a favored few.  It gives the power of death to the self-serving, morally corrupt few over the lives of the inconvenient and unwanted.   This is legalized murder and plunder and  is common to socialists, communists and others of the totalitarian bent of mind who see plunder and murder 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 Founders 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)
 
"Envy is rottenness to the bones" (Proverbs 14:30)
 
Whether it is the genocidal socialism of the former Soviet Union, the version espoused by the Nazis or the Americanized socialism that is emerging here, the overarching sentiment is the very same cold-blooded deadly sin---covetousness/envy:
 
"Marxism has been described as a blood cult, with envy its abiding stimulant, fuel, and motive."  (Joseph Epstein, former editor of The American Scholar, quoted in "Truths About Socialism," Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)

Where the faithful Christian Church promises the remission of original sin, regeneration by the Spirit of God and salvation in paradise, godless utopian fantasies hold a redemptive belief in the Promethean destiny of mankind.  This was the messianic dream of the Workers' Paradise where all conditions making for envy/covetousness would be put to an end by liberating libido and seizing all 'sinful' property---including wives, daughters and sons coveted by the libidinous---and by liquidating all state 'enemies,' (i.e., the human objects of envy, dissidents). 
 
 'Enemy' was a totally elastic category that expanded or contracted to meet political needs, libidinous desires, whims and caprices of the moment:

"The enemy is the great justification for terror, and the totalitarian state needs enemies to survive.  If it lacks them, it invents them.  Once they have been identified, they are treated without mercy."   Being an enemy is enough, "there is no need actually to have done anything at all."  (The Black Book of Communism, Courtois, Werth, Panne, Paczkowski, Bartosek, Margolin, . p. 747)
 
The methodology of evil begins by labeling the hated and envied as 'enemies' (i.e. in America--- homophobe, racist, bigot, pro Special Creation, pro-lifer, pro-traditional marriage, Tea Party conservative) and then declared criminals, which leads to exclusion from society.   Where power is total, exclusion very quickly leads to arrest and then extermination:

"The leaders of totalitarian regimes saw themselves as the moral guardians of society and were proud of their right to send anyone they chose to their death."  (ibid, p. 748)
 
If not death then deportation---and no trial necessary:
 
"But when you were deported, what was it for? What was the charge?" "Why bother to think up a charge? 'Socially harmful' or 'socially dangerous element'--S.D.E.', they called it. Special decrees, just marked by letters of the alphabet. So it was quite easy. No trial necessary."  "And what about your husband? Who was he?" "Nobody. He played the flute in the Leningrad Philharmonic. He liked to talk when he'd had a few drinks." ".We knew one family with grown-up children, a son and a daughter, both Komsomol (Communist youth members). Suddenly the whole family was put down for deportation to Siberia. The children rushed to the Komsomol district office. 'Protect us!' they said. 'Certainly we'll protect you,' they were told. 'Just write on this piece of paper: As from today's date I ask not to be considered the son, or the daughter, of such-and-such parents. I renounce them as socially harmful elements and I promise in the future to have nothing whatever to do with them and to maintain no communication with them."    (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn,   Cancer Ward)   

 As envy really is rottenness to the bones, the reduction (dehumanization) of the hated and envied to pig, weed, dog, filth, bigot, homophobe, or socially harmful element for example, occurs as a matter of course in the darkened, burning soul of the envious, especially to the soulless husks void of empathy and conscience.   Just as dehumanization precedes branding  as 'enemy,'  legalized plunder and exclusion from society, so it precedes the death of the envied, as was the case with Cain before he murdered his brother.

The systematic murder of millions of people in the former Soviet Union was primarily facilitated by two things.  First by 'scientifically' animalizing  'others,' the 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 covetousness/envy within the hearts of the 'oppressed.' Here in the Socialist Democracy of America the oppressed are 'special rights' groupies consisting of "gays," man-hating feminists, certain black-skinned people, Muslims (particularly jihadis), illegals, and other people of 'color.'

In 1956, Ludwig von Mises exposed the rottenness of envy and resentment fueling the paradoxical reasoning of envy-bitten people who are favorably disposed toward socialism rather than capitalism:
 
"It is paradoxical indeed that the leaders of these Oriental peoples, while casting longing glances at the prosperity of the Western nations, reject the methods that made the West prosperous and are enraptured by Russian communism that is instrumental in keeping the Russians and their satellites poor. It is still more paradoxical that Americans, enjoying the products of capitalistic big business, exalt the Soviet system and consider it quite "natural" that the poor nations of Asia and Africa should prefer communism to capitalism." (Reactionary Socialism, Mises Daily, Dec. 12, 2011)

Those who willfully choose evil, that is, the envy-fueled legal plunder or redistributionist policies of socialism,

"...are blinded by envy and ignorance. They stubbornly refuse to study economics and spurn the economists' devastating critique of the socialist plans because, in their eyes, economics, being an abstract theory, is simply nonsense. They pretend to trust only in experience. But they no less stubbornly refuse to take cognizance of the undeniable facts of experience, viz., that the common man's standard of living is incomparably higher in capitalistic American than in the socialist paradise of the Soviets." (ibid)

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, 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 orthodox supernatural Christian 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, Buckley, Hyde, Vivas and others 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).  And this is precisely what powerful, amoral socialists, progressives, and others of the evolutionary and totalitarian mindset do, thereby liberating themselves and their malignant allies to maliciously fan the flames of covetousness/envy and hate in the hearts of our youth:
 
"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 social implications of Original Sin were obvious to early conservatives who believed that if the West and America were to have any chance of surviving rather than finally erupting in flames and blood, then there must be a revival of traditional Christianity as revealed by Jesus Christ God incarnate along with the restoration to our vocabulary of a word discarded long ago, namely sin.
 
Peter Hitchens, author of "The Rage Against God" agrees.  The living, supernatural God of the Bible is the chief rival of global socialist utopians whose power has grown enormously due to the trivialization of sin by the submissive, irrelevant contemporary church and through an alliance with radical Muslims and the cult of unrestrained libido unleashed into the Western world by Freud, Reich, Kinsey and Marcuse,
 
".... promoted by the self-pitying anthems of rock music, and encouraged by the enormous power of 'progressive' education in which so many cultural revolutionaries work."  (p. 135)
 
Echoing the cautionary advice of early conservative intellectuals, Hitchens  warns that only the concepts of sin,
 
".....of conscience, of eternal life, and of divine justice under an unalterable law are the ultimate defense against the utopian's belief that ends justify means and that morality is relative.   These concepts are safeguards against the worship of human power." (p. 135)
 
Without these safeguards America and the West will be overcome by the tyranny of evil rapidly overspreading our culture today.

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

The Big Bang: Religious Endeavor to Become Like God

Throughout de-Christianized America neo-pagan and occult pantheist evolutionary reasoning is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience.  It 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---and increasingly seminary---disciplines as well. The West's wicked elite Gnostics, the "chosen" ones,  are particularly enamored of evolutionary reasoning:

" Western cultural elites have disregarded God for more than two centuries, but for a while the effects were mostly confined to their own circles. At first, they disregarded God. Then they deliberately desecrated Western tradition and lived in ways that would have spelled disaster if they had been followed more closely. But now in the early twenty-first century, their movement from disregard to desecration to decadence is going mainstream, and the United States is only the lead society among those close to the tipping point.... Soon, as the legalization and then normalization of polyamory, polygamy, pedophilia and incest follow the same logic as that of abortion and homosexuality, the socially destructive consequences of these trends will reverberate throughout society until social chaos is beyond recovery. We can only pray there will be a return to God and sanity before the terrible sentence is pronounced: "God has given them over" to the consequences of their own settled choices."  (Renaissance: The Power of the Gospel However Dark the Times, Os Guinness, p. 20)

So what is evolution?

"Evolution has always been a fundamentally spiritual concept.  In fact, some of the first thinkers to seriously explore the topic---the German Idealists of the early 19th century---were mystic philosophers who predated Darwin's Origin of Species by at least a century."  (A Brief History of Evolutionary Spirituality, Tom Huston)

Rene Guenon (1886-1951) concurs.  Guenon was a French metaphysician, writer, and editor who was largely responsible for laying the metaphysical groundwork for the Traditionalist or Perennialist school of thought in the early twentieth century.   In his brilliant critical analysis of Theosophy and Spiritism entitled, "The Spiritist Fallacy"  Guenon investigates and exposes the satanic esotericism working through various modern Western secret societies to pervert true religion---and orthodox Christianity in particular--- in order to ultimately turn the world over to Luciferian forces.  Guenon reveals that in early Theosophist and spiritist circles use of the word 'progress' or 'progressivist' preceded the use of the word 'evolution.' The roots of Theosophy, hence of evolution, stretch back to the ancient Upanishads of India in the East and in the West to ancient Babylon and Greece.  In its modern version, progress and/or evolution describes the progress (transmigration) of soul as it inhabits in succession the bodies of different kinds of beings over the course of thousands or even millions and billions of years.

Eventually the word evolution became preferred, especially by empirical realists and materialists like Karl Marx because it had a more 'scientific' allure:

"This kind of 'verbalism'...provides the illusion of thought for those incapable of really thinking..."  (ibid, p. 231)

Evolution is an ancient occult doctrine originating in ancient Babylonian Cabbala  and Egyptian Hermetic magic and Mystery Religion traditions from the time of Babylon---the mother of all Mystery Religions---that entered Christendom during the Renaissance.  In "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), reveals that certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Cabbala texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Cabbala. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that Hermetic Cabbala--- the divine occult science or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through initiation, evolution (progress), and ritual procedures is the best proof of the divinity of Christ. In other words said Molnar,

".....by the time of the Renaissance the esoteric texts of the first centuries A.D. had acquired in scholarly and humanist circles an unparalleled prestige, confronting as equals the texts held sacred by the church. In Pico's estimation, 'nulla est scientia que nos magis certificet de divinitate Christ quam magia et Cabala' (there is no science that would prove for us Christ's divinity better than magic and the Cabala.)" (pp. 78-79)

That Hermetic magic and Babylonian Cabbala are ancient Mystery Religion traditions undergirded by evolution is affirmed by G. H. Pember in his classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages."    In his impeccably researched book Pember thoroughly examines the role of fallen angels in connection with the occult science they taught to pre-flood generations and compares them to the explosion of spiritism (open intercourse with evil spirits), astrology, the Mysteries and other occult traditions sweeping over Christendom.

Pember writes that the Mysteries are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the powerful occult progressive brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given,

"...to the initiates of the Hermetic, Orphic, Eleusinian, and Cabbalistic mysteries, and were familiar to Chaldean Magi, Egyptian Priests, Hindu Occultists, Essenes, Therapeutae Gnostics, and Theurgic Neo-Platonists." (Pember, pp.243-244)

Today, arcane evolution has so thoroughly replaced the personal Creator in the consciousness of vast numbers of secularized Westerners, both within and without the whole body of the Christian Church that one of the leading evolution-worshippers of our day, Professor S.J. Gould, goes so far as to describe evolutionary biology as the story of mankind.  Evolution:

“....tells us where we came from, how we got here, and perhaps where we are going. Quite simply, it is science’s version of Roots, except it is the story of us all.”   (The Religious Nature of Evolution Theory and its Attack on Christianity, John G. Leslie and Charles K. Pallaghy, Ph.D, creation.com)

In fascinated affirmation, Theodosius Dobzhansky (1900-1975) , a prominent evolutionary biologist and progressive creationist, sees evolution as a light that illuminates all facts, a trajectory which all lines of thought must follow, for if man,

“...has arrived at his present state as a result of natural processes rather than a supernatural will, he can learn to control these processes…The concept of evolution, which is now basic to the life sciences, has provided new and in some ways revolutionary answers to questions men have been asking for centuries. The two most important of these are, ‘Why am I here, what is the purpose of human existence, and what is the nature of the world of life that surrounds us?”   (Dobzhansky, T., Ayala, F.J., Stebbins, G.L. and Valentine, J.W., Evolution, W.H. Freeman and Co., San Francisco, 1977)

The most widely held metaphysical evolutionary cosmology, or model of the universe's beginning and development is the Big Bang theory.   According to this version of the “story of us all” the universe is thought to have 'exploded' from a 'cosmic egg,' sometimes called the ylem in a universe bounded by an edge.  The Encyclopedia Britannica notes that the big bang is a theory,

"...of the evolution of the universe.  Its essential feature is the emergence of the universe from a state of extremely high temperature and density---the so-called big bang that occurred at least 10,000,000,000 years ago....."(Big Bang Model, The New Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th edition, 2:205, 1992)
 
The big bang is based on two assumptions: 
 
"The first is that Einstein's general theory of relativity describes the gravitational attraction of all matter.  The second assumption, called the cosmological principle, states that the observer's point of view of the universe depends neither on the direction in which he looks nor on his location.  This principle applies only to the large scale properties of the universe, but it does imply that the universe has no edge, so that the big bang occurred not at a particular point in space but rather throughout space at the same time.  These two assumptions make it possible to calculate the history of the cosmos after a certain epoch called the Planck time.  Scientists have yet to determine what prevailed before Planck time."    (ibid)
 
Distinctions are in order here. While the first assumption is actually scientific, the second assumption, sometimes misnamed the Copernican Principle, is completely metaphysical, or philosophical.  This is illustrated by Edwin Hubble (1889-1953) who discovered that distant objects appeared to have 'red shifts' approximately proportional to distance from earth. (Refuting Compromise: A Biblical and Scientific Refutation of 'Progressive Creationism' as Popularized by Astronomer Hugh Ross, Jonathan Sarfati, Ph.D., F.M., p. 146-147)

Hubble's speculative interpretation of this discovery presented it as evidence of an expanding universe without a center and without an edge (unbounded) as opposed to Hugh Ross, the popularizer of progressive creationism whose own imaginative assumption pictures everything exploding from a central point in a universe bounded by an edge.

Ross’s brand of evolutionary Christianity is wildly popular among certain Christians.  It was as a teenager that  Ross decided the non-biblical big bang was a fact, thus it is the foundation stone of his twisted Scriptures.  His big bang assumptions irresistibly lead him to trip, stumble and fall down evolution’s downward-spiraling vortex blurring distinctions between humans and animals as he goes.

The Big Bang is devoid of experimental proof, yet because the universe is definitely running down this fact surely points to some kind of beginning. This is apparently why some Christians—theistic evolutionists and progressive creationists such as Pope Francis, Hugh Ross, Tim Keller and many others—who feel we simply have to accept the evolutionists' billions of years—have decided to accept the Big Bang theory. After all, the Big Bang requires a beginning, and they think this fits with the Bible.  (Big Bang -- The Bucks Stop There, Henry Morris, Ph.D., icr.org)

However, not only does the Big Bang---or any other evolutionary cosmology---- not fit into the Bible but it also turns the Creator, Jesus Christ, into a liar, for He said that Adam and Eve were there "from the beginning of the creation" (Mark 10: 6), referring to the account in Genesis 1:26-27 not several billion years after the beginning of the creation.  As the Nicene Creed affirms, Gods Word starts with the creation of absolutely everything visible and invisible ex nihilo in the space of six days.  In his "Literal interpretation of Genesis" Augustine of Hippo notes that when God brought material reality into existence, "then time began its flight." That is, when God created material things (the visible), at the same time He created space and time (the invisible) as their context.  (Creator and Creature, Douglas F. Kelly, Table Talk: Biblical Dichotomies, p. 6) 

"It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all" John 6:63

God brought the angels into being sometime during that first creative week and as Thomas Aquinas, one of the most respected theologians of the medieval church affirms,

"Nothing entirely new was afterwards made by God, but all things subsequently made had in a sense been made before in the work of the six days.  Some things...had a previous experience materially, as the rib from the side of Adam out of which God formed Eve; whilst others existed not only in matter but also in their causes, as those individual creatures that are now generated existed in the first of their kind."   (Summa Theologica, ibid, Sarfati, p. 120)

Evolutionary Cosmologies: Imaginative Assumptions

 George Francis Rayner Ellis, a high-profile evolutionary cosmologist, lets the cat out of the bag with his candid confession regarding the important role of imaginative assumptions with respect to the broad range of evolutionary models of the universe such as the Big Bang. Ellis argues,
 
"...I can construct...a spherically symmetrical universe with earth at its center, and you cannot disprove it based on observations."   "You can only exclude it on philosophical grounds.  In my view there is absolutely nothing wrong in that.   What I want to bring into the open is the fact that we are using philosophical criteria in choosing our models.  A lot of cosmology tries to hide that."  (ibid, Jonathan Sarfati)
 
In other words, the Authority and Revelation of God, particularly in His six day creation account is rejected a priori not on the grounds of observational science but on the philosophical assumptions of arrogant speculators whose imaginative evolutionary models are metaphysical projects pretending to be observational science.

Another unspoken Big Bang assumption is naturalism, which ought to ring alarm bells for faithful Christians.   Naturalism posits that the universe and everything in it, including conscious life, is the result of entirely natural processes.  The Big Bang therefore, is a neo-pagan and occult pantheist evolutionary cosmology, a metaphysical program grounded in naturalism that rejects both the personal Creator and the supernatural dimension.  This position holds true despite the uninformed claims of speculators like Hugh Ross who claim that God created and ignited the Big Bang. 

While Pope Francis and many other liberal revisionists embrace and endorse Big Bang cosmology 33 leading evolutionary scientists expose its frauds and fallacies  in ‘Open Letter to the Scientific Community’ published on the internet (www.cosmologystatement.org) and in New Scientist (Lerner, E., Bucking the big bang, New Scientist 182 (2448) 20, 22 May 2004) these evolutionary scientists write:

 "Our ideas about the history of the universe are dominated by big bang theory. But its dominance rests more on funding decisions than on the scientific method, according to Eric Lerner, mathematician Michael Ibison of Earthtech.org, and dozens of other scientists from around the world." (Secular scientists blast the big bang: What now for naïve apologetics? Carl Wieland, creation.com) 

 The open letter includes statements such as:

1. "The big bang today relies on a growing number of hypothetical entities, things that we have never observed—inflation, dark matter and dark energy are the most prominent examples. Without them, there would be a fatal contradiction between the observations made by astronomers and the predictions of the big bang theory.’

2. "But the big bang theory can’t survive without these fudge factors. Without the hypothetical inflation field, the big bang does not predict the smooth, isotropic cosmic background radiation that is observed, because there would be no way for parts of the universe that are now more than a few degrees away in the sky to come to the same temperature and thus emit the same amount of microwave radiation. … Inflation requires a density 20 times larger than that implied by big bang nucleosynthesis, the theory’s explanation of the origin of the light elements.’ (This refers to the horizon problem, and supports what we say in Light-travel time: a problem for the big bang, Carl Wieland)

3. "In no other field of physics would this continual recourse to new hypothetical objects be accepted as a way of bridging the gap between theory and observation. It would, at the least, raise serious questions about the validity of the underlying theory."

4."What is more, the big bang theory can boast of no quantitative predictions that have subsequently been validated by observation. The successes claimed by the theory’s supporters consist of its ability to retrospectively fit observations with a steadily increasing array of adjustable parameters, just as the old Earth-centred cosmology of Ptolemy needed layer upon layer of epicycles." (ibid, Carl Wieland) 

It’s amazing to see how many Christian leaders have not merely tolerated the ‘big bang’ idea, but embraced it wholeheartedly:

"To hear their pronouncements, believers should welcome it as a major plank in our defense of the faith. ‘At last, we can use science to prove there’s a creator of the universe.’ However, the price of succumbing to the lure of secular acceptability, at least in physics and astronomy, has been heavy. We have long warned that adopting the big bang into Christian thought is like bringing the wooden horse within the walls of Troy."  (ibid, Wieland)

The Big Bang model is not the only game in town.  Among other imaginative models there is the quasi-steady-state model of the big bang antagonist, the late Sir Fred Hoyle.  Then there is the ekpyrotic  model positing that our universe is a four-dimensional membrane embedded in a five-dimensional ‘bulk’ space.  Its proponents admit:

Our proposal is based on unproven ideas in string theory and is brand new.” ( ibid, Sarfati, p. 182)

Then there are the multiverse models proposing that our universe is not the only one but that space is filled with an infinite number of parallel universes.  Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees, who holds the honorary title of Astronomer Royal champions multiverse conceptions in the hope that in at least one or more of them living beings created themselves who are far more advanced than our own life-forms. Rees believes that if this is the case, then super-intelligent aliens might be capable of simulating in their brains or in a super-computer the complex history of our universe, meaning the universe we inhabit is a simulation lacking real substance and existing only as a mental construction, a matrix, in the minds of highly evolved aliens who seeded our world with life and travel through time in order to control man's evolutionary progress. (Scientific Mythologies, James A. Herrick, p. 216)

The idea that the universe we inhabit exists only as a mental construction is very similar to Hinduism's Brahman. Brahman is the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (energy field, Void, prakriti matter) or Essence of material phenomena, meaning that the universe exists only as a mental construction in the mind of Brahman: brahma satyam jagan mithya, or "Brahman is real, the world is unreal." (swamij.com/mahavakyas)

Rees proposal is also similar to the hypothesis presented by Olaf Stapledon, a scientist who has always kept one foot firmly planted in neo-pagan and occult pantheist science fiction accounts and imagines our universe to be an artifact of the Star Maker. Building off of Stapledon's fantasy Carl Sagan suggests that we are "star folk" made of "star stuff." (Herrick, pp. 216-217)

Replace Star Maker with Brahman and "star stuff" with sarvam khalvidam brahma, or "All is truly Brahman" (swamij.com) and we have ayam atma brahmam: "The Self is Brahman." (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5)

In the caption of his book, "Just Six Numbers," Rees reveals that the ancient occult basis of his propositions is the serpent biting its tail:

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

The Ouroboros with its astral planes or multiverses is well-known around the world in its' many ancient and modern occult traditions.

Evolutionary Cosmologies: An Abomination that Desolates

Like moths drawn to strange fire, from the Renaissance to our own time liberalized Christian theologians have been drawn irresistibly to evolution.   Followed by countless unwitting souls, they've been flying into an abomination that desolates.

Evolutionary Cosmologies: The Significance

Today’s broad range of evolutionary cosmologies symbolize the deep religious desires of certain men, who in their rejection of our Lord Jesus Christ and physical resurrection, seek  autonomous self-creation, transcendence and self-redemption, thus are incarnations,

“ …of the ancient, deeply religious endeavor “to become like God” – infinitely wise, omnipotent, autonomous, and immortal.” ((Mircea Eliade, The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and  Structures of Alchemy,  Dr. Erdmann)

After Bundy, Who Will Beast-Men Come for Next?

Vastly inflated pride and haughtiness preceded primordial mans' fall into idolatry and paganism. A haughty spirit led them to accept the devil's lie that the living God no longer existed except in the form of a creative energy that enabled them to evolve into gods.  The truth as to this evil said Athanasius,

"....is that it originates, and resides, 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 Romans, the Apostle Paul teaches that there are only two sources for all of the religions everywhere around the world and over the course of history.   These two are naturalism, or worship of creation (i.e., time, matter, particles, energy), and worship of the living Creator Who created time, matter, particles, energy and everything else.   In accepting the devil's lie primordial people fell into naturalism, which is the belief that there is neither living God nor heavenly realm. There is only the creative energy operating within the natural or physical dimension.

After the Flood the devil's lie evolved into a much more comprehensive system.  In the post-Flood system all that exists is cosmos.   Cosmos is an energy field, some call it mind, others energy or light.  According to ancient occult lore of the Mystery initiates (Illuminists) going back to the time of Nimrod, the cosmic light or mind eventually gave birth to itself after creating a cosmic egg which upon exploding (Big Bang), fertilized the physical universe with potentialities: of life, reason, and godhood.

Though the cosmic mind was completely unconscious somehow it nevertheless operated by pure willpower.  Slowly but surely it evolved into a physical entity, the very first in the cosmos, which became the individual repository of the cosmic mind.   For Eastern mystical pantheists it is Brahman (the Void).  For ancient Gnostics this being was the impersonal god called Abraxas.   With the Kabbalists it is En sof while for Egyptians' it was the Sun-God Ra.  Ra evolved out of Nu — primordial matter (physical universe):

"I came into being from primordial matter...I made all the forms under which I appeared by means of (or out of) the god-soul which I raised up out of Nu."  (The Long War Against God, Dr. Henry Morris, p. 243)

Modern evolutionary atheist humanists and their theological counterparts teach similar ideas with the difference that theologians couch theirs in Christian terminology.  With them, the unconscious cosmic mind is God. Under direction of its human shapers, this sock-puppet God creates and ignites a cosmic egg which fertilizes the universe with potential life, reason, and higher consciousness and then directs the evolution of life over billions of years from lowest things to highest.   Obviously, this man-controlled sock-puppet can only create evolutively and despite  extravagant claims otherwise, man is not the created image bearer of the living God, thus he is not a person but the bestial conscious product of the god of forces.

Beginning at the Renaissance certain theologians, mystics and intellectuals had betrayed their calling and turned back to the magic way of the initiates.  Their apostasy set off a chain reaction eventually resulting in the 'murder' of the living God and the attempted obliteration of man's soul/spirit. Eric Voegelin comments:

"....the order of being (was) obliterated (and reinterpreted) as essentially under man's control." Taking control "requires the decapitation of being — the murder of God." (Eric Voegelin, "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," p. xv)

The corollary to the murder of the living personal One God in Three Persons is the obliteration of personhood.

The term 'person' is uniquely Christian.   It originated in Christian theologies developmental struggle to comprehend the nature and experience of the transcendent, personal 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 the concept of human personhood, St. Augustine (AD 354-430) affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent, personal Triune God then it logically follows that each person is a trinity of being — of soul (personality, emotions) spirit (God-consciousness, will, reason, conscience) and body (physical matter).

 In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the soul/spirit. Animals have souls but not spirits, thus without spirit man is no longer a person but a beast qualitatively no different from a rat, pig, or ape.
 
It is on the historically unique Christian definition of person that America’s Constitutional Republic is grounded, making America’s founding documents great spiritual documents delineating the individual God-given spiritual property and temporal rights of “we the people.”
 
In affirmation,  more than eighty years ago President Calvin Coolidge said in a speech delivered on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 5, 1926:

"Democracy is Christ's government in church and state... Here was the doctrine of equality, popular sovereignty, and the substance of the theory of inalienable rights....When we take all these circumstances into consideration, it is but natural that the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence should open with a reference to Nature's God and should close...with an appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world and an assertion of a firm reliance on Divine Providence...In its main feature the Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document. Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man....They have their source and roots in the religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. " (Backfired: A Nation Born for Religious Tolerance No Longer Tolerates Religion, William J. Federer, pp. 270-271)
 
Whether the Founders were individually Christian or not, there was among them a strong Christian consensus that finds some of its greatest spiritual and moral expression in the scholarly works of  Samuel Rutherford in “Lex Rex” (1644) and in the writings of the 18th century jurist William Blackstone.
 
Rutherford reasoned that since all men are fallen (sinners), then no man---whether king, prime minister, jurist, or president for example---is superior to any other man as all men, none excluded, are sinners. This means that no man is above the law; all are subject to the law without exception, thus all men (i.e., evolutionary humanists and their theological counterparts, apostates, Obama, Holder, Supreme Court justices, ‘gay homofascists,’ lesbian goddesses, illegals, abortionists, perverse sex-educators, and elitist GOP insiders) must recognize that they are under the transcendent Law of God.
 
Blackstone greatly influenced early American understanding of the Triune God, the Bible, Law and nature. He taught that since the living, personal God is the omnipotent Creator who works and governs the affairs of men then all law should be consistent with His Revelation in the Bible. No law should be passed that is contrary to the higher law of God as is all too common today.
 
Furthermore, as all men are created spiritual equals in the eyes of God, then life, worth, dignity and other unalienable rights are conferred upon each human 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.

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)

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 Death of God, Personhood, and Our Constitutional Republic: Or the Fall all over again

"According to a recent Pew Research survey, 60 percent of all Americans believe that “humans and other living things have evolved over time”, while only 33 percent of respondents rejected this statement."  (100 Facts About The Moral Collapse Of America That Are Almost Too Crazy To Believe, Michael Snyder, Apr. 9, 2014, thetruthwins.com)

Nihilism, the idea that man is no longer a person but a beast qualitatively no different from a rat, pig, or ape is the logical assumption if the transcendent One God in Three Persons has been decapitated whether by the brazen declaration of his death or by the subtle method of reducing the Genesis account, particularly the first three books, to mere myth and allegory open to the endless rationalizing and arrogant assumptions of intellectually and morally corrupt men.

Nihilism is spiritual, moral, and intellectual suicide, yet for the last two hundred years, naturalistic Enlightenment philosophy, evolutionary biology, methodological naturalism, evolutionary Christianity and other derivatives of naturalism have been working their way virtually unopposed through our seminaries, pulpits, government, legal institutions, education institutions, military, and entertainment complex embedding themselves, often unconsciously, within our minds. This means that not only is the way we see ourselves and America colored by nihilism, but to the degree that our minds and conscience have been polluted are we immobilized by our own moral corruption and apathy, the spiritual emptiness that says in reaction to our peculiarly twisted, degraded culture of death, "Why bother?'   Why bother when the easiest thing is to accommodate ourselves and our children and churches to it?

The brutally twisted, sexually deviant, lawless atmosphere of our age is the "death of God" made tangible and it is Nietzsche who describes our meaningless, disordered, ugly, atonal, brutal, upside-down climate of nothingness where Cliven Bundy's ranch can be forcibly stolen by tyrannical, covetous  beast-men because in their eyes Bundy and his family are qualitatively no different from the cattle grazing his land:

"We have killed him (God), you and I! ...But how have we done it? How were we able to drink up the sea? Who gave us the sponge to wipe away the whole horizon? What did we do when we loosened this earth from its sun? Whither does it now move? Whither do we move? ...Do we not dash on unceasingly? Backwards, sideways, forwards, in all directions? Is there still an above and below? Do we not stray...through infinite nothingness? Does not empty space breathe upon us? ...Does not night come on continually, darker and darker?" (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 108)

Such is the theater of the cruel, lawless, and absurd in which there is neither up nor down, male nor female, right nor wrong, true nor false, normal nor abnormal because the living God is dead, and while America and the West drift aimlessly in "infinite nothingness" nihilism progressively dissolves the foundation of soul/spirit, personhood, worth, morality, family, individual liberty....and Cliven Bundy's God-given spiritual right to property.

The burning question each American should be pondering is: who is next?  Who will the beast-men holding the levers of power and influence at every level of our society come for next?

America's Ruling Class Beast

Among the consequences of the spiritual and moral famine within the Christian Church is the external madness and paranoia-and-hate inducing network of lies blinding and imprisoning Americans in a downward-spiraling vortex of moral confusion, fear, cowardice, apathy and delusion.

Sex, technology and entertainment glutted Christians and secular Americans are blind to the fact that our society is quickly falling into the graveyard of socialism, enforced sexual deviance and psychological and physical terror that Russia, the former Soviet Union, is still trying to climb out of.   Like the former Soviet Union, America has consigned the living Triune God, His unchanging Truth and Moral Law to outer darkness.    Thus the Biggest Lie we have collectively accepted is His replacement---the lie of evolutionary scientism that was force-fed to Russians, especially their children.  Its inverted account of the beginning of everything means there is no living, personal God, men and women are not His spiritual image-bearers and there was no fall, thus man is not a sinner in need of a Savior. 

Instead, all humans are depersonalized genderless conscious products of natural forces in process of change (evolution) over time.  In this madness-inducing way of reasoning there is neither unchanging truth and moral law nor two created sexes but rather genetic superiority or inferiority, moral relativism and continuously emerging orientations because all things are in continuous process of change.  Thus morally informed objections against tyranny, murder, betrayal, treason, theft, sodomy, lesbianism, 'gay' marriage, pederasty, sadism, Satanism and Sharia are meaningless since these vices, appetites and twisted beliefs are also the products of  America’s ‘new’ Baals: change, time, the 'god' evolution and scientism.

Because the evolution Baal’s greatest appeal is to pride, covetousness, greed, envy, vengeance and lust for power and control of others, the sickening, spreading stench of evil---narcissism, malignant narcissism, intolerance of truth, intellectual deviance, brazen lying, scapegoating, and lack of empathy---has already cast this generation into the entryway of a hellish crucible of madness running red with the blood of millions of tiny, unborn humans---their spines cut, brains sucked out, and body parts tossed into waste receptacles like garbage.

"The beast has licked hot human blood.  The man-killing machine is brought into motion."  (Russian socialist Yuri Martov, head of the Menshaviks, 1918;  The Black Book of Communism, Courtois, Werth, Panne, Paczkowski, Bartosek, Margolin, p. 736)

Out of a fiery crucible a Beast is arising just as it did in the Soviet Union.  Its vile, insane head lolls askew and its slobbering, leering lips drool in anticipation. It is a power-hungry, sex-crazed, hate fueled Beast of madness, idolatry, sadism, sodomy and lesbianism:

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, www.workers.org)

Birth of the Beast

By the end of WWI, socialists realized that something was amiss, for the world's proletariat had not heeded Marx's call to rise up in opposition to evil the God of Revelation and capitalism and to embrace atheism and communism instead.  They wondered what had gone wrong.

Separately, two Marxist theorists---Antonio Gramsci of Italy and Georg Lukacs of Hungary-concluded that the Christianized West was the obstacle standing in the way of a communist new world order.  The West would have to be conquered and deconstructed first.

Gramsci posited that because Christianity had been dominant in the West for over 2000 years, not only was it fused with Western civilization, but it had corrupted the workers class.  The West would have to be de-Christianized, said Gramsci, by means of a "long march through the culture."  Additionally, a new proletariat must be created.  In his "Prison Notebooks," he suggested the new proletariat be comprised of criminals, women, and racial minorities.

The new battleground, reasoned Gramsci, must become the culture, starting with the traditional family and completely engulfing churches, schools, media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, music, science, and history.  All of these culture-sustaining institutions must be radically transformed and the social and cultural order gradually turned upside-down with the new proletariat placed in power at the top.

The Prototype

In 1919, Georg Lukacs became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun regime in Hungary.  Lukacs immediately set diabolical plans in motion to de-Christianize Hungary.  Reasoning that if Christian sexual ethics could be undermined among children, then both the hated traditional family and the Christian Church would be dealt a crippling blow, he launched a perverse sex education program in the government controlled schools.  Sex lectures were organized and literature handed out which graphically instructed youth in intercourse and deviancy while simultaneously encouraging them to deride and reject Christian moral ethics, monogamy, and parental and church authority.  All of this was accompanied by a reign of psychological and physical terror perpetrated against parents, priests, and dissenters. 

Hungary's youth, having been fed a steady diet of values-neutral pseudo-morality and perverse sex education while simultaneously encouraged to rebel against all authority, easily turned into delinquents ranging from bullies and petty thieves to sex predators, murderers, and sociopaths.

Gramsci's prescription and Lukacs' plans were the precursor to what Cultural Marxism in the guise of the ACLU, SIECUS, GSLEN and the 'gay' juggernaut--acting as judicially-powered enforcers--later brought into American schools.

Building a base

In 1923, the Frankfurt School---a Marxist think-tank----was founded in Weimar Germany.  Among its founders were Georg Lukacs, Herbert Marcuse, and Theodor Adorno.  The school was a multidisciplinary effort which included sociologists, sexologists, and psychologists.

The primary goal of the Frankfurt School was to translate Marxism from economic terms into cultural terms. It would provide the ideas on which to base a new political theory of revolution based on culture and harnessing new oppressed 'victim' groups for the faithless proletariat. Smashing religion, morals, it would also build a constituency among academics who could build careers studying and writing about the new oppression.

Toward this end, Marcuse-who favored polymorphous perversion expanded the ranks of Gramsci's new proletariat by including homosexuals, lesbians, and transsexuals.  Into this was spliced Lukacs perverse sex education and cultural terrorism tactics.  Gramsci's ‘long march' was added to the mix, and then all of this was wedded to Freudian psychoanalysis and psychological conditioning techniques. The end product was Cultural Marxism, now known in the West as multiculturalism enforced by political correctness.

Additional intellectual firepower was required: a theory to pathologize what was to be destroyed. In 1950, the Frankfurt School augmented Cultural Marxism with Theodor Adorno's idea of the ‘authoritarian personality.'  This concept is premised on the notion that Christianity, capitalism, and the traditional family create a character prone to racism and fascism.  Thus, anyone who upholds America's traditional moral values and institutions is both racist and fascist.  Children raised by traditional values parents, we are told to believe, will almost certainly become racists and fascists.  By extension, if fascism and racism are endemic to America's traditional culture, then everyone raised in the traditions of God, family, patriotism, private property, gun ownership and free markets is in need of psychological help.

The pernicious influence of Adorno's ‘authoritarian personality' idea can be clearly seen in some of the research that gets public money

"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" edwatch.org, Jan. 26, 2005)  

America's Rising Beast

While most Americans pray to God the Father Almighty Who created all men in His spiritual image, Americas' evolutionary humanist ruling class totalitarians:

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

As genetically and spiritually superior elites, the sodomy-favoring Ruling Class naturally think un-evolved (genetically inferior) American hominids are completely unfit to run their own lives. Calling our attention to the amorality, hypocrisy and ruthlessness of the Ruling Class, Codevilla notes that since any:

"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)

To preserve its' delusional self-conception as gods, the Ruling Class stealthily replaced God the Father with Darwinism, the Bible with scientism, faithful priests with pseudo-priests of science and evolution and the First Commandment with "Thou shall worship no other God but the Ruling Class Beast."

In this light we can see why:

"Homofascism is the order of the day and Christian 'intolerance' simply will not be tolerated (and this is why) CEO and co-founder of Mozilla Brendan Eich is forced to resign because of his $1,000 donation to Prop 8 six years ago." Christians, buckle up, "Your whole world is about to change. The Rainbowshirts are emboldened and they’ve broken out the long knives."  They smell blood in the water, "I’ve often said that these folks want those who speak Biblical truth about human sexuality and legitimate marriage either 1) dead, 2) imprisoned or, if they can have neither of these, 3) marginalized to the point where they can’t even support their families." Freedom is hanging on by a thread, America, "and it is those who worship the sin of Sodom that are determined to finish it off once and for all." (Why Are They Called ‘Homofascists’? Here’s Why… " J. Matt Barber, April 5, 2014,  American Prophet)

Further examples of America's Ruling Class Beast:

"Obama Laughs, Fist Bumps Crossdresser for Saying He Has Sex With Men"  (Heather Clark, christiannews.net, 7/15/2014) 

"Official U.S. Policy: Defer to Islam, Require World to Accept Sodomy" (barbwire.com, 7/12/2014)

"Obama prepares pardons for terrorists"  (Cliff Kincaid, Renew America, July 14, 2014)

Depravity

The Beasts' conscience is depraved, and this is one of the most evil and destructive forces in any society.   In his Commentary on Psalm 33/2, 8, St. Augustine notes that a depraved conscience is the miserable condition of all whose 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)

In this light the Beast is revealed as a self-righteous hypocrite, a malignant narcissist and pathological liar who refuses to tolerate the knowledge of his own weaknesses, failings, and sinfulness, thus is constantly engaged in sweeping the evidence of his own remarkably consistent sins under the rug of his depraved conscience in order to preserve his carefully constructed public image.   While the Beast refuses to see his own wickedness he clearly sees and constantly remarks upon and salaciously gossips about the weaknesses and failings of other people, especially those whom he resents, in this case, all morally decent straight males and females, faithful Christians and Jews.

Ultimately, the Beasts' 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 the depraved companions of the wicked will are pride, covetousness, envy and lust for power over other people.

In contrast to the Beast, the more humble in spirit, some of whom may suffer from lesbian and homosexual attractions, are people who do not see themselves as righteous, who question their own motives, search their own conscience and repent of their sins. Unpleasant and even painful though it may be, their sense of personal sin is precisely that which keeps their sin from getting out of hand.  Hence it is a great blessing because it is a safeguard against the human proclivity for evil.

Over and against the humble in spirit, the willfulness of the wicked will is extraordinary and always accompanied by a lust for power, thus narcissists are more likely than most to gravitate to positions of power and influence.

When narcissism is so hardened that the capacity for empathy is lost, the narcissist has descended into malignant narcissism.  Malignant narcissism negates restraints that result from empathy with and for our fellow human beings.   This motivates malignant narcissists such as Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler to not just dehumanize and scapegoat other people but to spiritually and physically crucify them….to murder them:

"Before exterminating his enemies, Stalin had them displayed in public in a show trial.  Lenin had introduced this strategy in 1922...Stalin merely improved on the formula and made it a permanent feature of his apparatus of repression..." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 746)

By transferring their own wickedness onto others through projection and scapegoating, malignant narcissists cause evil and suffering in our world.  For example, when they acquire domination over their own families they create miniature totalitarian societies, crucibles of torment characterized by pathological lying, confusion, deception, isolation, suspicion, deviancy, craziness, despair, cruelty, paranoia, rage, psychological manipulation, projection, scapegoating and crucifixion of  scapegoats. Crucifixion generally consists of merciless character destruction, cruel ridicule, false accusations of guilt, sadistic psychological bullying and physical abuse.

America's Ruling Class Beast is now identified as a malignant narcissist whose wicked will seeks to impose itself upon the wills of all morally decent straight males, females, and their children by overt or covert coercion in order to dominate, shame, terrorize, psychologically bully, and physically punish and crucify them in a variety of ways but especially through destruction of the innocence and goodness of their children by making them over in the Beasts' own evil image.  This evil is the result of envy, the essence of which is sadism: unholy pleasure received from harming other people.

The Beast therefore receives pleasure from tormenting, perverting and avenging itself on morally straight society, its children and traditional life-sustaining social institutions.  Like its’ father the devil the Beast is intolerant of everything good, decent, true and innocent, hence it forces submission of straight society to its will while it sadistically destroys the traditional family and the innocence of all youth who have survived our abortion mills.

As it was in the Soviet Union, America's Ruling Class Beast will eventually be devoured by another, more hideous beast that waits in the wings of Hell for when the rebellious spirit and will of American narcissism has finally been cast down, utterly broken and crying out for one to save it.  Then like the demonized Stalin or Hitler it will come forth and the tyranny, terror and bloodletting will commence in full and run from the hands of all who have not repented.   In this way they will condemn and destroy themselves.

"The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance."  2 Peter 3:9

As an atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn was cast into the Soviet Union's manmade hells on earth known as the Gulag system.  He suffered the torments of hell for seven years, repented and arose from hell a new man, a Christian prophet.   He came to our country more than forty years ago to warn Americans to wake-up, to mend their ways and repent before a tyranny of evil casts American society into hell.   But America did not listen.

 Since Solzhenitsyn, other watchers are even now trying to warn us.  Will we wake-up and listen this time?  Or must we be purged and brought to repentance in a man-made hell right here in America?

The Kingdom of Darkness Triumphant: Church and Society

"In this postmodern age many think that no one can know Truth.
It is true that we cannot know truth if there is no revelation from God
."  – Vishal Mangalwadi

Dr. Vishal Mangalwadi (1949-), founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement, is an Indian philosopher and social reformer.   He has lectured in over 40 countries and published seventeen books including "The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization!"   Mangalwadi's Revelation Movement exists to re-establish the cultural authority of VERITAS (Truth) because God has revealed Truth in scripture and God has given man the mind and clues to help us discover what He has concealed. Proverbs 25:2.  (RevelationMovement.com)

In a recent e-mail message entitled "The Kingdom of Darkness Encircles North America," Vishal writes that his third visit to North America opened his eyes to the magnitude and the power of a massive force of darkness facing the faithful.  Because darkness has deeply penetrated the Church itself it is hard to estimate how much essential theology and church in North America has been lost.   Nevertheless, there are those who are digging in their heels against the darkness that is rapidly encircling North America.  Likening these truth warriors to Jedi warriors and Hobbits, Vishal said,

"When Luke Skywalker joined the Star Wars saga, he had no idea that he was a Jedi. Nor did the tiny, motley crew that teamed up with him know what they were up against. To mix metaphors, they were little Hobbits, unaware of the importance of their mission."

The Kingdom of Darkness

Darkness is evident in both the devastating loss of God's revealed Truth, moral law and norms in our secular-atheist society and in the failure of Americans, within and without the whole body of the Christian Church,  to restrain their own corrupt passions (James 1:14-15).  Depravity in the guise of special rights and privileges, the myth of evolution as scientific fact, same-sex and kundalini-Holy Spirit equality, the big lie of global warming, paganized Christianity and a long list of destructive freedoms such as unfettered killing as 'choice,' and pornography and sodomy as Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms have become dictatorial both outside of the Church, where 'secular' servants of sin demand all others give up their God-given rights, and within, where 'Christian' servants of sin sweep away the essentials of the faith to make room for their self-centered values resulting in lawless Churches:

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:4-10)

Lawless churches are nothing more than social clubs for servants of sin, thus they,

“…exercise no discernment, enforce no standards, and teach more pop psychology than timeless truth. Naturally, lawless churches are populated with lawless Christians, the greatest absurdity of them all. “What fellowship have righteousness and lawlessness?” 1 Corinthians 6:14 (How can I walk North and South at the same time?," Lawless Christians, Dan Popp, Renew America, Mar. 10, 2012)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who counseled and delivered thousands of people suffering from demonic bondage in its various forms throughout the world argues that sin cuts a person off from God. Sin opens the door to demonic oppression and possession seen in relation to psychological distortions having the following predominant characteristics:  hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature, violent temper, belligerence, meanness, abnormal sexuality, conscious atheism; rebellious, bigoted attitudes toward Christ and God, and destructive, murderous rages. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

Cutting Edge Minisitry David Bay identifies the ‘values’ of the lawless as Satanic, and adds that lawless Americans at every level of society, both in and out of the church, have embraced Satanic values with no conscious awareness that they have done so.  When a people believe in nothing higher than 'self', they make personal selfishness, intellectual arrogance, irrational feelings, lying, covetousness, physical lust, hate and envy their gods.  The elevation of these Satanic values produces in them other strong desires: for power over others, for material possessions, pleasure, privilege, status, star-power, and wealth as well as powerful sexual urges that must be satisfied at any cost, no matter who or what might be harmed.  (Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan, Bay, Cutting Edge Ministries)

The Church is the only element in society with the moral authority and the availing remedy to counteract such manifest evil, but for the most part America's Christian church has been rendered impotent.   Having compromised and conformed itself in one way or another to our pagan culture and dictates of science/evolution it is no longer salt and light, thus is worthy only of being spewed out.

Malachi Martin, author of "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," describes the spiritually desolate condition of the compromising church:

"Among the general population of Catholics and Christians of other denominations, large numbers of people no longer learn even so basic a prayer as the Our Father.   In churches and parochial schools alike, the subject of Hell is avoided, as one Midwestern priest put it, in order not to put people on a 'guilt trip.'  The idea of sin is likewise avoided, according to the same source, in order not to do 'irreparable damage to what has been taught for the past fifteen years." (p. xvi)

Fearing rejection by our paganized culture and scientific/evolutionary establishment, spiritually dead churches refuse to contaminate what is termed the 'rational' with the essentials of the faith necessary both for salvation and for the recognition of evil.  And without the grace that is born of true faith,

"....Satan does what he does best---he ceases to exist in the eyes of those who do not see." (ibid)

Consequently, a favorable climate exists for the occurrence of demonic oppression and possession among the general population:

"Possession among the general population is so clear that it is attested to daily by competent social and psychological experts, who for the most part, appear to have no 'religious bias.'  Our cultural desolation---a kind of agony of aimlessness coupled with a dominant self-interest---is documented for us in the disintegration of our families.  In the break-up of our educational system.  In the disappearance of publicly accepted norms of decency in language, dress and behavior.  In the lives of our youth, everywhere deformed by stunning violence and sudden death, by teenage pregnancy; by drug and alcohol addiction; by disease; by suicide; by fear....Whether spoken or acted out without explanation, the dominant question of the younger generation...is, What can you do for me?  What can my parents, my friends, my acquaintances, my enemies, my government, my country, do for me?" (pp. xiii-xiv)

America is enshrouded by a suffocating darkness that has fully penetrated our society and  compromising church.  Dr. Carl Raschke, Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver, concurs.  His chilling book “Painted Black” takes you through the minds of the deviant and murderous and then explores the growing darkness sweeping through our hometowns.  He  concludes that the decadence, pornography, heavy metal music, drug culture, fantasy role-playing games, cruelty, mass murders, criminality, the ‘new religions’ and upsurge in overt Satanism in American culture have certain social and spiritual ties that bind them together, revealing that they are part of a similar dark spiritual genus enabled by mystification of the most corrupt passions and secular values:

Satanism is but the spiritual Frankenstein created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God.” (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West — Part 6, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

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

A vast, interpenetrating, malevolent darkness covers the West. Within its' shadow an obviously insane America implodes as a large part of the church falls away.  Please pray that our Lord will cleanse, renew and strengthen His church and build up a force for spiritual and cultural resistance and renewal.    America desperately needs courageous truth warriors: men and women who will choose to stand and fight the forces of darkness for the soul of the West.

Evolutionary Atheist Paganism: The Most Evil Religion in History

In his mid-December state of the nation address Russian President Vladimir Putin portrayed Russia as a defender of traditional Christian values against what he depicted as the morally bankrupt, Godless West and America:

Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values..."  “Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.” (Who’s ‘godless’ now? Russia says it’s U.S., Marc Bennetts, The Washington Times, 1/28/2014)

In a move that has America's "elite" pagan class howling in outrage, Putin took steps to protect Russians, their children, and Russian culture from Western and American degeneracy by adopting a law banning homosexual propaganda and another that makes it a criminal offense to insult the religious sensibilities of believers:

"The law on religious sensibilities was adopted in the wake of a protest in Moscow’s largest cathedral by a female punk rock group against the Orthodox Church’s support of Mr.Putin. Kremlin-run television said the group’s “demonic” protest was funded by “some Americans.” (ibid)

In affirmation of the steps taken by Putin, Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, the leader of the Orthodox Church, said the general direction of the Western and American 'elite' class is without doubt an anti-Christian and anti-religious character.  Russia has already been through a catastrophic epoch of atheism and we know,

"...what it is to live without God...We want to shout to the whole world, ‘Stop!’”

America ‘s Godless, degenerate condition is not the result of a natural progression away from God and morality but rather the result of a diabolically conceived program of degradation and destruction stealthily carried out over the course of eighty years by legions of atheists---progressives, communists, socialists, and like-minded conspirators situated within every cultural, political, legal, religious, educational, entertainment and media institution.   This completely evil plan is documented in part in Cultural Marxism:    http://www.americanthinker.com/2007/02/cultural_marxism.html

Communism, socialism, leftism, and progressivism are political religions grounded in modern “pagan” animism and evolutionary conceptions:  very ancient pagan superstitions that teach that the universe and everything in it consists of void, matter and animated energies (i.e., evolution, chance, karma) working on and through matter.

Matter is amoral, it cannot think, speak, or create life, let alone human consciousness.  In the words of the atheist philosopher Bertrand Russell:

"Blind to good and evil, reckless of destruction, omnipotent matter rolls on its relentless way."  (Russell, "Why I am not a Christian and Other Essays on Religion and Related Subjects," 1957, p. 115)

Pagan animism and its primary doctrine evolution is a magical religious worldview devoid of God:

"Evolution is a religion," declared evolutionary religionist Michael Ruse.  "This was true of evolution in the beginning and it is true still today…One of the most popular books of the era was 'Religion Without Revelation,' by Julian Huxley, grandson of Thomas Huxley…As always evolution was doing everything expected of religion and more."  (National Post, Canadian Edition, 5/13/2000)

All worldviews begin with a religious declaration.  The Biblical or Revealed Word perspective begins with, "In the beginning God…"  Evolutionary atheism begins with divinized man declaring, "In the beginning void, matter, and energy."

Void, matter, and energy is all there is, and despite that none of it lives or thinks, matter nevertheless thinks, chooses, is miraculously self-perfecting and Divine:

"…matter itself continually attains to higher perfection under its own power, thanks to indwelling dialectic…the dialectical materialists attribution of 'dialectic' to matter confers on it, not mental attributes only, but even divine ones."  (Dialectical Materialism, Gustav A. Wetter, 1977, p. 58)

In explicitly religious language, the following neo-pagan religionists offer all praise, honor, and glory to their non-life bearing anti-human anti-creator:

"We may regard the material and cosmic world as the supreme being, as the cause of all causes, as the creator of heaven and earth."  (Vladimir Lenin quoted in Communism versus Creation, Francis Nigel Lee, 1969, p. 28)

"The Cosmos is all that is or ever will be."  (Carl Sagan, Cosmos, 1980, p. 4)

Evolutionary atheism has demonstrated itself to be a virulently anti-human, pathologically destructive, demonically murderous worldview.  In just the first eighty-seven years of the twentieth century, the evolutionist project of radically transforming the world and the consciousness of mankind  has led to the brutal extermination of between 100-170 million un-evolved  'subhuman' men, women, and children.

In the Soviet Union, the God-and-human hater Vladimir Lenin exulted that,

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

Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death.  He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species."  It was Lenin who "decided who should disappear by virtue of having been condemned to the dustbin of history."  From the moment Lenin made the "scientific" decision that the bourgeoisie represented a stage of humanity that evolution had surpassed, "its liquidation as a class and the liquidation of the individuals who actually or supposedly belonged to it could be justified."  (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)

In Nazi Germany pagan evolutionism resulted in gas chambers, ovens, and the liquidation of eleven million "useless eaters" and other undesirables.  Evolutionist Niles Eldridge, author of "Darwin: Discovering the Tree of Life," reluctantly concurs.  Darwin's theory, he acknowledges,

"....has given us the eugenics movement and some of its darker outgrowths, such as the genocidal practices of the Nazis." (2005, p. 13)

Alain Brossat draws the following conclusions about the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and the ties that bind them:

"The 'liquidation' of the Muscovite executioners, a close relative of the 'treatment' carried out by Nazi assassins, is a linguistic microcosm of an irreparable mental and cultural catastrophe that was in full view on the Soviet Stage.  The value of human life collapsed, and thinking in categories replaced ethical thought…In the discourse and practice of the Nazi exterminators, the animalization of Other…was closely linked to the ideology of race.  It was conceived in the implacably hierarchical racial terms of "subhumans" and "supermen"…but in Moscow in 1937, what mattered…was the total animalization of the Other, so that a policy under which absolutely anything was possible could come into practice." (Black Book of Communism, p. 751)

Though evolutionary pagans claim a certain system of ethics, this is not true since there is no source for ethics, boundaries, or limitations of any kind.  This is because in order for evolutionary 'ethics' to be consistent with the idea that life evolved by chance from chemicals and continues to evolve over time, ethics must be built upon human social instincts and emotions that are in a continuous process of change over millions of years.   This view demolishes both moral and sexual ethics and social taboos, thereby liberating man to do as he feels and to seize by hook or crook whatever he desires, covets, lusts after, and so on.  Over time this results in the overthrow and perversion of law within a chaotic, lawless climate controlled by tyrants, predators, vicious gangs, psychopaths, and other criminal elements as is becoming the situation here in America with every passing day.

Perhaps Darwin could not envision the evil unleashed by his ideas.  Nonetheless, he did have some inkling, for he wrote in his "Autobiography" that one who rejects God,

"…can have for his rule of life…those impulses and instincts which are strongest or…seem to him the best ones."  (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p.7)

Atheist Max Hocutt realizes that an absolute moral code cannot exist without God, however evolutionary paganism does not allow God to exist except as a force or energy within the cosmos. Therefore,

"…if there were a morality written up in the sky somewhere but no God to enforce it, I see no reason why we should obey it.  Human beings may, and do, make up their own rules."  (Understanding the Times, David Noebel, p. 138-139)

Jeffrey Dahmer, a psychopath who cannibalized his victims,  goes to the heart (the dreadful consequences) of Western and American Godlessness. In an interview he said,

"If a person doesn't think there is a God to be accountable to, then…what is the point of trying to modify your behavior to keep it within acceptable ranges?  That's how I thought…I always believed the theory of evolution as truth, that we all just came from the slime."  (Dahmer in an interview with Stone Phillips, Dateline NBC, 11/29/1994)

Matter is amoral.  It is blind to good and evil.  Thus it is a license to America’s burgeoning population of Dahmer’s at every level of society, from highest to lowest, to commit crime.  To lie, cheat, steal, murder, sexualize and rape our children, destroy our Constitutional rights, destroy traditional marriage and the family, disarm us,  plunder our hard-earned income and reward our wealth to themselves, to psychologically abuse us--- in short, to do as they please, even to allowing jihadi killers to enter our nation to blow up buildings and rape and murder us.   And this is the meaning of Godlessness.

America has yet to admit a shameful, dark secret.  Pagan evolutionism…the Godless anti-creation, anti-human myth that empowered Nazism and Communism, is being taught to America's youth in our government-controlled schools.  The animalization of Americans is well advanced and coupled to a corresponding collapse of human dignity and worth.  Already we hear of human life described in dehumanizing terms such as 'vegetable,' "non-persons," "ho's" "human resource"  and "uterine content."

Ominously, evolutionary paganism has nearly replaced Christian precepts in our universities, judiciary, federal bureaucracy, corporations, medicine, law, psychology, sociology, entertainment, news media and halls of Congress.  As Biocentrism it fuels the nonhuman animal rights project, the gay rights movement, radical feminism, and the increasingly powerful and influential green-pagan environmentalist program, which demands that America submit to the draconian antihuman mandates of the Kyoto Treaty.

Like the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany before it, America is on the verge of completely rejecting God, the natural order, sexual ethics, and moral absolutes and instead, embracing the godless religion of evolution, amorality, and the unnatural.

Evolutionary atheist paganism is the most dangerous religion thus far in history.  It begins with the 'animalization of Other,' in tandem with the elevation of the 'superior elite pagan class' for whom this serves as a license to make up their own rules, abuse power, and force their will onto the citizens.  This is accompanied by a process that pathologizes faith in God, immutable truth, "He made them man and woman," enduring principles,  moral ethics, virtue, and social taboos while simultaneously elevating narcissism, tyranny, cruelty, nihilism, confusion, perversion, sadism, theft, and lying to positions of politically correct "new morality."   Satanically twisted "new morality" (political correctness) is then enforced through sensitivity training, speech codes, hate crime laws, and other intimidation tactics.  If not stopped, as history warns us, this rapidly escalating downward process leads inevitably to enslavement, mass murder and totalitarianism:

"A scientific analysis of behavior dispossesses autonomous man and turns the control he has been said to exert over to the environment.  The individual…is henceforth to be controlled…in large part by other men."  (Evolutionary Behaviorist B.F. Skinner, Understanding the Times, David Noebel, p. 232)

Personhood: Why the Constitution is a Great Spiritual Doctrine

In the American Dictionary of the English Language 1828, Noah Webster defines a person as, "An individual human being consisting of body and soul..."

The term 'person' originated in Christian theologies developmental struggle to comprehend the nature and experience of the transcendent, personal 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 unique concept, St. Augustine (AD 354-430) affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent, personal One God in three Persons then it logically follows that each human person is a trinity of being — of soul/spirit and body (physical matter).

The noblest part of the soul is spirit (mind, conscience, will). Spirit is the unique property that distinguishes soul from the material body in which it is fully embedded. It is immortal, self-aware and can will, meaning it can freely choose to deceive or not deceive, to lie or not lie.

In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person. It is on this historically unique Christian definition of person that America’s Constitutional Republic is grounded, making America’s founding documents great spiritual documents delineating the God-given spiritual property and temporal rights of “we the people.”

In affirmation,  more than eighty years ago President Calvin Coolidge said in a speech delivered on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 5, 1926:

"Democracy is Christ's government in church and state... Here was the doctrine of equality, popular sovereignty, and the substance of the theory of inalienable rights....When we take all these circumstances into consideration, it is but natural that the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence should open with a reference to Nature's God and should close...with an appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world and an assertion of a firm reliance on Divine Providence...In its main feature the Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document. Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man....They have their source and roots in the religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. " (Backfired: A Nation Born for Religious Tolerance No Longer Tolerates Religion, William J. Federer, pp. 270-271)

Whether the Founders were individually Christian or not, there was among them a strong Christian consensus that finds some of its greatest spiritual and moral expression in the scholarly works ofSamuel Rutherford in “Lex Rex” (1644) and in the writings of the 18th century jurist William Blackstone.

Rutherford reasoned that since all people are sinners, then no person ---whether king, prime minister, jurist, bishop, pope, pastor, president, rap artist, or diva for example---is superior to any other person. This means that no person is above the law.  All  people are subject to the law without exception, thus all individuals---Obama, Holder, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, John Kerry, Supreme Court justices, ‘gays,’ illegals, abortionists, perverse sex-educators, and cowardly GOP insiders must recognize that they are sinners under the transcendent Law of God.

Blackstone greatly influenced early American understanding of the Triune God, the Bible, Law and nature. He taught that since the One God in three Persons is the omnipotent Creator who works and governs the affairs of men then all law should be consistent with His Revelation in the Bible. No law should be passed that is contrary to the higher law of God.

Furthermore, as all men are created spiritual equals in the eyes of God, then life, worth, dignity and other unalienable rights are conferred upon each human 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.

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)

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 of "we the people" is the eternally unchanging 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 and self-control with individual 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)

The Fall of America

Contemporary de-christianized America is no longer the 'freest, most enlightened civilization,' nor are our morally corrupt leaders and their "bought and paid for" voting constituents a God-honoring virtuous people capable of self-government.

Erwin Lutzer writes that our Constitutional Republic's Christian foundations throughout our government, education, media, and American law have been undermined by two very powerful corrosives.

First there is the evolutionary thinking, Darwinism in particular, that has swept our culture and penetrated deeply within the whole body of the Christian Church.

In destroying the foundations of Christianity, Darwinism in particular and evolutionary thinking in general, has reduced “we the people” to conscious products of evolution,  thereby destroying the unique concept of human personhood and individual spiritual property:

"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)

By 1870 Christopher Langdell, dean of Harvard School of Law was teaching that the nihilistic principles of evolution must be applied to the written opinion of judges. Lutzer points out that the conclusion was inescapable.   Law was no longer 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.” (pp. 65-66)

Evolutionary thinking, whether secular or theological rejects miraculous Special Creation (the six-day Genesis account ex nihilo) together with the Fall and teaches instead an inverted anti-creation account positing billions of years of evolutionary process eventuating in life arising from primordial matter, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.

This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else–maybe divine supermen, god-men, super robots or cosmic beings—-but nothing can be said about transgender, ‘gay,’ and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by a Big Bang which may or may not involve an impotent God shaped and limited by the theologians who are His creators.

With regard to soul/spirit, if life arose from chemicalsor a blob of matter and then billions of years later man evolved from lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth.  Like them he has no spirit—free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience.  He is a fleshy androgynous robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

Worse, all naturalist conceptions, whether secular atheist or theological, ultimately lack a source for life, consciousness, soul, and personhood as all 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.  For example, in paganized America tens of millions of unborn humans have already been liquidated, our youth and now our military sexually perverted and mind conditioned, and our Constitutional rights trashed while during the 20th century in excess of 160,000,000 human weeds, useless eaters, and human dinosaurs were brutally murdered in one way or another by two evolutionary neo-pagan regimes: the Godless pagan Soviet Union under Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin and the occult pagan National Socialist Germany under Hitler.

Today, natural science 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 'Christian' theological permutations such as evolutionary theism and the progressive creationism popularized by astronomer Hugh Ross.

Second, liberal pantheist theology and its’ primary doctrine evolution 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 God, thus man is not a sinner, neither is he a person because he is not the spiritual image bearer of God. In the end, theological liberalism is nothing more than nihilistic humanism in theological dress. (ibid, p. 67)

Today, Darwin’s theory touted as 'evolutionary fact' has finally reached saturation point in American 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.

It is also why America’s depraved, power-hungry, self-worshipping left-right ruling class has nearly succeeded in leveraging itself into the position of supreme law-givers and mind-and-conscience shapers.

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, is 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 neo-pagan Darwinism and theological liberalism with the following consequences:

1.The abandonment of our transcendent Triune God means abandonment of His Law together with the unique Christian definition of person and everything built upon it---spiritual property, unalienable rights, and morality---thereby turning our founding documents into useless pieces of paper.

2. Abandonment of immutable truth and absolute morality means that egoistic sinful men are the measure of all things. This is why 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. Many 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, otherwise known as multiculturalism. Historically, pluralism has been a sign that tectonic change is on the horizon. In this case, it presages America's transformation from its' Christian heritage to Sharia, paganism and occult pantheist New Age, known politically as Agenda 21 but really communism in a green dress.

4.  Powerful, influential occult New Agers honeycombed within the UN, non-governmental agencies, and at every level of our government, academia, entertainment, media, and elsewhere, 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 Guard but the long-awaited quantum leap in evolution, the catastrophic chaos that utterly destroy the old order and usher in the utopian 'golden age' of Aquarius.

The Way Forward

The gradual abasement of the Soul from Truth to Falsehood (is) by the abuse of her freedom of Choice." Early Church Father Athanasius

Because of the triumph of evolutionary thinking and liberal pantheist theology, vast numbers ofspiritually darkened, morally debased Americans either do not know they are God’s spiritual image-bearers or because they have embraced evolutionary materialism or pantheism and reincarnation do not want to know. Either way, this is the real source of the spiritual cancer destroying our nation and freedoms that politics absolutely cannot fix.

The Way is still open however:

"Thou hast brought forth, O Lord, my soul from hell: thou hast saved me from them that go down into the pit." Psalm 30:3

Ex-atheist 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 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)

The Secret World Government and its’ New World Order Ambitions

In many respects, modern Americans and Western Europeans are the unwitting dupes and serfs of a global ‘elite’ coalition of secretaries of state, prime ministers, princes, queens, multinational foundations, global corporatists and international bankers, a global power complex that for over a century has been destroying the Judeo-Christian foundations of Western and American civilization and stealthily preparing its' serfs to submit to a totalitarian socialistic world order and universal church that requires the liquidation of billions of people in order to save Gaia (earth).

In his opus, "Tragedy and Hope," Dr. Carroll Quigley deliberately reveals the existence of this leviathan of political and economic power poised to seize control of the planet. Right from the start said Quigley, the complex has been controlling and manipulating Left-wing groups:

"...the power that....Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or communist power but...the power of the international financial coterie." (Tragedy and Hope, p. 954)

What this means is that though Communists and Nazis carried out the murder of millions of men, women, and children during the 20th century, the devilish ‘elite’ power complex was the real power behind their murder.

Karen Hudes, a former insider at the World Bank affirms Quigley's claim. She reports that a treacherous global financial system dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve dominate the pillars of America's government and control the media to cover up its crimes:

"What is really going on is that the world's resources are being dominated by this group," she explained, adding that the "corrupt power grabbers" have managed to dominate the media as well. "They're being allowed to do it." (World Bank Insider Blows Whistle on Corruption, Federal Reserve, Alex Newman, New American, 22 May 2013)

Hudes, an attorney who spent some two decades working in the World Bank's legal department, has observed the machinations of the criminal network up close:

"I realized we were now dealing with something known as state capture, which is where the institutions of government are co-opted by the group that's corrupt... The pillars of the U.S. government – some of them – are dysfunctional because of state capture; this is a big story, this is a big cover up." (ibid)

The existence of the power complex has long been known and over the years variously described as,

a.The Power Elite” (C. Wright Mills, The Power Elite)

b.The Superclass (D. Rothkopf, ‘Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They are Creating)

c.The Secret Establishment (Anthony Sutton, America’s Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones)

d.The Anglo-American Establishment (Prof. Carol Quigley, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time)

e.The Establishment (Larry Abraham, The Greening: The Environmentalist’s Drive for Global Power)

f.Atlantic Ruling Class (Kees Van Der Piyl, The Making of an Atlantic Ruling Class)

g.The Secret World Government (Cherep-Spiridovich, The Secret World Government or The Hidden Hand) 

The power complex is working to set up a Universal Theocratic World State which is why they are behind the New Age occult evolutionary pantheism that is sweeping virtually unchecked over and across the Western and American civilized world.  Occult evolutionary pantheism is to become “the church of all people,” said John D. Rockefeller, Jr. (The Cult of the All-Seeing Eye, Robert Keith Spenser, p. 48)

The global elite work through a vast, interlocking network of local, national, and international organizations, America’s media, academia, Hollywood, various foundations and a temple complex consisting of the U.N., in particular its’ pyramid-shaped meditation room; Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Publishing), the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding and the Baca Grande (Colo. Based New Age Vatican City).

The global aristocracy intends the complete overturning of Biblical spiritual and moral ethics enjoyed by Western and American civilization for over a thousand years.  As part of this goal, the Bible must be reinterpreted in terms of evolutionary pantheism, androgyny, and oneness and an entire generation of children must be liberated from every vestige of parental influence and traditional ethics and history.  They must be taught to hate Yahweh and their own parents, the Church, and traditional America and be indoctrinated to embrace evolutionary thinking, androgyny, alternative relationships, religious syncretism, moral relativism (no right way, no wrong way), religious pantheism, cultural diversity, global citizenship and sustainability.

The enemies of the coming New Age World Order are faithful Christians and Jews, traditional values Tea Partiers and Conservatives.  These people represent the hated Old Order and are a threat to the new world order being built by the power complex at the expense of hard-working Americans whose children are being taught to hate Yahweh, their own parents and civilization and their tax-dollars used to subsidize dictators, needless wars, terrorists, parasitic lifestyles, and many other evils. 

Those who resist the evils that have been forced upon Americans and Westerners over the last sixty years by occult pantheist globalists endanger the new world order which “we have based on the alliance between Wall Street and Washington,” said David Rockefeller.  While we men of firms,

“…and banks organize international channels of economy and raw materials, the government is now building…diplomatic and economic bridges between Washington and foreign government….Now radical conservatives are attempting to destroy all that in seeking, first and foremost, to serve the national interests of the United States.” (Hope of the Wicked: The Master Plan to Rule the World, Ted Flynn, p. 307)

For over sixty years unsuspecting Americans have been psychologically manipulated, deluded, and disarmed by influential mind conditioners working through the media, academia, Hollywood, the music industry and advertising at the behest of the power complex.   Like the individual members of the power complex they are not the devil but their minds are in accord with his mind, they do his work by persuading good people,

".... that it is wrong to call evil by its name." (Persuasive Wickedness & What We Must Say About It, James Hitchcock)

 One of the real horrors of the fabricated reality imposed on us is its positive declaration of a satanically twisted ‘new morality’ which we commonly think of as political correctness with its two overriding absolutes, ‘tolerance’ and ‘inclusion’ or diversity.  Thus today legions of useful imbeciles and wicked individuals claim the moral high ground from where they audaciously point accusing fingers at the living, personal God, Biblical ethics, straight males and females (particularly white, middle class ones), pro-lifers, defenders of the traditional family, self-defense advocates, the founding principles and Americans who hold fast to them.

According to the power complex and its legions of foot-soldiers, all good, decent Americans are evil radical conservatives and Tea Partiers while all of the imbeciles and psychopaths are actually the good, decent people.   This upside-down reality is the classic definition of the satanic inversion.

Progressive Liberalism: Politics of Pride, Covetousness, Envy, Hate and Murder

In “Income tax: How government turns human vice into votes,”  Ilana Mercer  writes that the countless individuals who are at the receiving end of irrational malice from other individuals will agree with me that an experiment conducted at the Universities of Warwick and Oxford was more of a confirmation than an investigation of the human condition. 

Ingeniously operationalized by Professor Andrew Oswald and Dr. Daniel Zizzo, the experiment demonstrated the lengths to which people will go to destroy the wealth of others, even if, in the process,

“….they knowingly wipe out their own funds.... Whether or not they are aware of the indirect harm to themselves, a sizeable majority of people in society does indeed want to see the wealth of others burned.”  (Mercer, 2003, WND)

The economists approximated reality by distributing cash unequally among the subjects, who were then told they could anonymously,

 “….burn away other people’s money,” with one caveat: in the process, they would be destroying some of their own. Naively, the researchers expected little “burning” to occur, and certainly for it to stop once the destruction of the opponent’s money became too painful to the player’s pocket. They were flummoxed when 62 percent of the subjects continued to “burn” the wealth of others even at crippling costs to themselves.”   (ibid)

Whether it is burning the wealth of others, throwing acid in the face of ‘other’ or ridiculing and/or minimizing the “life of the mind” of ‘other,’ (anti-intellectualism), all are acts of vengeance, the principle manifestation of pride (or self-esteem) which together with selfishness, ingratitude, covetousness, envy, and hate (collectively speaking: ressentiment) demonstrates preference for one's self instead of God and ‘other,’ and just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, covetousness, envy, hate 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.

Ressentiment is the kind of 'wisdom' that,

"does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where envying and contention is, there is inconstancy, and every evil work. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere." James 3: 15-17

Ressentiment does much to explain the GOP’s elitist driven war against the Tea Party, Obama’s unworkable universal healthcare, progressive taxation, the sexual perversion of our youth by so-called sex educators, multiculturalism (erasure of all differences), reproductive choice (death wishing), animal rights (hatred and degradation of humanity), naturalism (nature as lord of the universe), Darwinism (idolaters to God: you are not my Father), population control schemes (possessiveness and hatred of others), Agenda 21, redistribution of property schemes, depriving Americans of their right of self-defense, and much of what mainstream media write off as senseless crime. 

Conservative writer John Ransom summarizes a recent case: 

A private citizen armed with a gun for which he had a license, shot and killed two robbers in Reading, Pennsylvania this week…. The two masked robbers….had just exited a corner store in Reading when a concerned citizen….confronted them, and... shot 'em dead…..Sooooo… OF COURSE… the families of the two dead ROBBERS want the citizen who shot and killed them charged with a CRIME.” (Robbers Shot, Killed, Family wants Murder Charges, or Something, Ransom, Townhall.com, 11/8/2013)  

The idolatrous robbers were striking at the object of their ressentiment.  Ressentiment values its own welfare less than it does the harm and even the destruction of its object, in this instance, burning the wealth of the storeowner.

The family of the criminals is the third party of the formal structure of ressentiment.  Their demand that the valiant citizen be charged with a crime boils down to, “if the storeowner did not possess what our self-serving sons coveted then none of this would have happened.”

Max Scheler, author of “Ressentiment” writes that ressentiment’s formal triadic structure is always the same:

A” (i.e., the robbers) is affirmed, valued, and praised not for its own intrinsic quality, but with the unverbalized intention of denying, devaluing, and denigrating B (i.e., storeowner and citizen).   A is ‘played off’ against B.”  (Idols for Destruction: the Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture, Herbert Schlossberg, p. 52-53)

In other words, the obvious evil of “A” is ruthlessly transferred by the 3rd party onto “B” via endless rationalizations, character destruction of “B,” and professions of love for innocent “A.”

Ressentiment will even drive men so far as to “murder” God (theocide) as exemplified by Nimrod, Buddha, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Teilhard de Chardin and Alice Baily.

When ressentiment does not dare come out in the open it expresses itself in myriad forms of destructive negation such as cruelty pretending to be harmless jokes,  destructive criticism parading as doubts, phony concerns for truth and contempt pretending to be of love.  This happens so that hatred remains undetected.

In "Death by Envy," Fr. George R.A. Aquaro points out that Christ's earthly ministry centered on convicting the world of idolatry and hate by provoking people (represented by the Pharisees) to envy, hate and then murder. By becoming the scapegoat, Jesus Christ allows mankind to place their sins upon Him so that we might repent at the sight of His blood. (p. 101)

The tragedy of the fall is that man has lost his introspection. Judas had no hope of looking within himself and seeing his ressentiment which inevitably destroyed him. The Cross is thus a messenger of mankind's pride, ingratitude, covetousness, envy, hate and murderous intentions. Therefore we are obliged to search ourselves for ressentiment and its root cause, idolatrous self-centeredness, and repent of them because,

“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)

Everything that has been thought, said and done will be revealed. There is nothing "covered that shall not be revealed; nor hidden that shall not be known" (Luke 12:2) and just as it is "...appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment" (Heb. 9:27) so there will be eternal life in Paradise for those who love God and have kept His commandments but for those who prefer “self” to God and brother and have done evil and whose "hardness and impenitent heart" has treasured up unto itself, “ wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God...for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger." (Rom. 2:5)

America's Rising Totalitarian Masters & the Only Cure for the Coming Evil

Despite that Obama’s much vaunted healthcare rollout has been a fiasco right from the start, his administration fully expects to weather the growing storm in its’ usual manner---by brazenly lying, rationalizing, brow-beating, appeals to greed and envy, scape-goating, and running out the clock.

In his op-ed, “Lying to Save Their Skins,” Matthew Vadum writes that America’s first Marxist President has been able to get away with wrongdoing by lying to our complicit mainstream media,

“….which he knows has little interest in conducting good faith investigations of the Benghazi saga, Fast and Furious, multiple IRS abuses, and various other administration-wide scandals that have become too numerous to count. Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, is no different. “(Vadum, FrontPage Magazine, Nov. 5, 2013)

Even in the face of overwhelming evidence that the president has lied to the public with his oft-stated promise that,

“….if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period … If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period,’ and slight variations thereof, the media refuses to call Obama’s deliberate misrepresentations lies.”  

Therefore since mendacity,

“….stalling, and stonewalling have worked well as part of a public relations strategy for the Obama administration over its first five years… there is no point in changing a winning formula now…”

Obama as Vadum said, is America’s first Marxist President.   As such he carries the banner of the Revolution whose utopian fantasy and meaning are nicely summarized by John Lennon’s song ‘Imagine:

“….no heaven, no hell, no religion, no countries, no possessions, ‘nothing to kill or die for’ (no right or wrong), no past, no future (all the people living for today.” (Liberal Treason Explained, Jim O’Neill, Canada Free Press, Oct. 29, 2012)   

At the deepest, most important level of all, the Revolution is really about the human condition after the Fall and the causes of evil and suffering as defined by self-centered, rebellious, covetous men and women.

From the moment that Adam and Eve were ushered out of paradise, men began complaining:

"Why must we die? Why must there be decay? Why must we work? Why does he have (fill in the blanks) but I do not? That's unfair! Why can't we say, do and have whatever we desire? If it feels good (libidinous impulses) then why shouldn't we do it? Why must there be authority, rules, norms, absolutes, and consequences? Why does it have to be this way? Why can't it be the way we want it to be?"

And finally: Who or what is the cause of our suffering?

From Ham to Nimrod to Karl Marx and contemporary revolutionaries and apostates, the answer is the transcendent Authority of God the Father Almighty together with the fallen condition of man and the world:

"Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God." He "changed the government into tyranny" in order to turn them away from God and make them dependent upon his own power. He also would be revenged upon God "if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to be able to reach!" And he would "avenge himself on God for destroying their forefathers." (Jewish historian Josephus cited in" Who was Nimrod?" Dr. David Livingston)

Karl Marx dreamt of ruining the world created by God the Father and proclaiming himself 'god.' In his poem "Human Pride," he writes that after ruining the world:

"I will wander godlike and victorious /Through the ruins of the world/ And, giving my words an active force/ I will feel equal to the Creator." (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, pp. 30-31)

Marx's comrade in arms, Mikhail Bakunin, aligned himself with the Devil and declared:

"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, ibid, p. 27)

After confessing to his 'cosmic authority' problem, New York University professor Thomas Nagel admits:

"I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers. It isn't just that I don't believe in God (but) that I hope there is no God! I don't want there to be a God; I don't want the universe to be like that." (The Rage Against God, Peter Hitchens, p. 150)

It is when the terrible-willed and their passive-aggressive followers — most generally pleasure-seeking hedonists — become possessive of the things of this world and resentful of the "way things are" that they rebel against God the Father and raise up new Towers of Babel — separate paradises — here on earth. With Nimrod it was Babylon. Marx's Tower was the materialist Communist worker's paradise while Hitler's Babel was his socialist Third Reich. Contemporary ‘gays’ are raising up a new Sodom and Gomorrah while the occult New Age heralds the coming of the final Tower — a planetary communist paradise whose cost of admission is Luciferic initiation.

In the preface to "The Silmarillion," the book of beginnings (Genesis account) that sets the stage for the subsequent Lord of the Rings trilogy, J.R.R. Tolkien observes of the terrible-willed:

"(they) will rebel against the laws of the Creator — especially against mortality." Possessiveness toward the things of this world alone or together with hatred of death and decay "will lead to the desire for Power, for making the will more quickly effective — and so to the Machine (magic)." (p. xiii)

Tolkien defines magic as the abuse of God-given talents and intellectual abilities and other powers fueled by the:

"….corrupted motive of dominating: bull-dozing the real world, or coercing other wills" by way, for example, of ideologies and evolutionary theories designed for the unmaking of the world as it is.

In other words, when pride, covetousness, jealousy, lust, wrath, and envy inflate to monstrous proportions it is then that the terrible-willed declare the death of God, usurp His powers, declare themselves gods and invent reality-denying ideologies such as Hegel’s dialectic, dialectical materialism, natural selection, genetic determinism, socialism, and evolutionism to seduce and coerce other wills:

"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)

And of course straight-forward questions are absolutely forbidden lest truth expose the corpus of lies, hate, hypocrisy, deceit and delusion underlying and fueling the 'Machine.'

On the subject of the Machine, Herbert Schlossberg perceptively observed:

"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." (Herbert Schlossberg, cited in The Seduction of Christianity, Dave Hunt and T.A. McMahon)

Ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn describes terrible-willed revolutionaries as the masters of the world who, bearing no evil within themselves, have declared that all the evils of the world are caused not by man's fallen human condition but by deterministic external or natural causes — unjust, unfair systems, and enemies of the State.

In his book, "Cry Havoc: The Great American Bring-Down and How it Happened," Ralph de Toledano clearly identifies the unfair, unjust systems and the enemies of the State who adhere to them:

"….the morality that derives from the Old and New Testaments, the traditional family, the respect for the past as a guide to the future, the restraint of man's baser instincts, and a socio-political organization which guaranteed freedom without license. Of these obstacles, the two greatest were God and the family." (p. 26)

Former atheist Peter Hitchens notes that throughout the West, Revolutionaries are hostile to Christian theism because it:

"....is the religion of their own homes and homeland, the form in which they have encountered — and generally disliked and resented — the power of God in their own lives.....the Left sympathizes with Islam because (it is) the enemy of their (own enemy, the Christian culture)." (Hitchens, p. 131)

Hostility to God and Christianity is not confined to just the Left but shared equally with GOP atheist insiders. Because of their hostility to God and Christianity they hold in utter contempt the middle-class, mainly Christian constituents (i.e., Tea Party) they must rely upon to be re-elected.

Solzhenitsyn summarized the whole meaning of the Revolution when he described its’ three main causes as rebellion against God the Father quickly followed by apostasy and denial of man's fallen condition.  This allows the revolutionaries and apostates to comfortably "forget" that evil cuts right through the hearts of all men, themselves included.

Peter Hitchens writes that all who have comfortably forgotten their own fallen condition yet who have the good fortune to live in a society governed by religious belief:

"....may feel free from absolute moral bonds, while those around them are not. This is a tremendous liberation for anyone who is even slightly selfish. And what clever person is not imaginatively and cunningly selfish?" (Peter Hitchens, p. 148)

The Revolution and the murderous utopian systems spawned by it are spiritual diseases of fallen men. The only cure is spiritual regeneration through submission to God the Father Almighty.   

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who returned to the Christian faith 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 his 1974 essay “Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations,” Alexander 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)

Are You Guilty of Blaspheming Our New 'Master's' Science Idol?

In his book, “Miracles,” C.S. Lewis argued that the birth of modern science depended on the Biblical view of Jehovah God as Creator:

Men became scientific because they expected Law in Nature, and they expected Law in Nature because they believed in a Legislator.” (The Magician’s Twin, edited by John G. West, p. 21)

In the 1828 edition of Noah Webster’s “American Dictionary of the English Language,” Webster tells us that the word ‘science’ comes from Latin for scientia, which simply means to know.   In the general sense of the word, science is the comprehension of truth or facts by the mind (soul/spirit).  In philosophy, science is a collection of the general principles or leading truths relating to any subject. The term science is also applied, as in mathematics, to self-evident truths, or in metaphysics to generally acknowledged truths, or on experiment and observation as in chemistry.   There is also the science of art, writing, and cooking.

Lewis admired modern science but warned against its perverted twin, amoral scientism, or natural science and evolution.  Lewis believed that Darwin’s philosophically materialist theory provided potent fuel for twisting and perverting modern science into natural science whose real purpose was to shut Jehovah God out, thus enclosing mankind inside hermetically sealed nature.

In the foreword to “The Magician’s Twin,” Phillip E. Johnson accurately describes Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud as early 20th century wizards whose neo-pagan materialist concepts were so spellbinding,

“….that they set the intellectual agenda for the entire twentieth century.” Johnson adds to the list of scientific magicians the “DNA is everything’ biologists, including the brilliant popularize Richard Dawkins and the physicalist neuroscientists who assure us that our thoughts and decisions (including the thoughts of neuroscientists?) are no more than the effects of electro-chemical events in the brain.” (The Magician’s Twin, pp.9-10)

Shortly after Lewis had become a Christian he wrote “The Pilgrim’s Regress” (1933), an autobiographical allegory of his intellectual and spiritual journey toward Jesus Christ.  The philosophically materialist Sigmund Freud appears in the book as Sigismund Enlightenment who shares a dungeon cell with Lewis’s main character John after he has been arrested.  The dungeon is overseen by a Giant known as the Spirit of the Age who makes people transparent just by looking at them.  As a result, wherever John looks he sees through his fellow prisoners into their insides.  And when John looks at himself he is horrified to observe the inner workings of his own body.  After days of such torment John cries out in despair,

I am mad. I am dead. I am in hell forever.” (ibid, pp. 25-26)

The Giant is the evil Luciferian spirit of nihilism (nothingness) working through devilish materialist magicians or wizards and the dungeon is the hell of materialistic reductionism (methodological naturalism) that in the name of modern natural science has isolated the Holy God in the supernatural realm  and uncreated Imago Dei by reducing soul to body (DNA) , spirit (mind) to grey matter, and abilities of mind (thought, will, conscience) to movement of chemicals and firing of neurons.   The dungeon then, is the hermetically sealed hell into which God’s image-bearers have been flung and conditioned by the devil's human tools to believe they have no soul/spirit because it cannot be weighed, measured, tested, seen or touched.   Thus in despair, Herman Melville wrote:

Man disennobled---brutalized; By popular science---atheitized; Into a smatterer…” (The Restitution of Man: C.S. Lewis and the Case against Scientism, p. 32)

Instead of Adam, lamented Disraeli,

“…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.” (ibid, p 33)

According to Lewis, Darwinism is another example of credulous thinking fostered by scientism.  He lamented that scientism wizards have conditioned the modern mind to accept as a scientific formula for the universe in general the principle,

Almost nothing may be expected to turn into almost everything without noticing that the parts of the universe under our direct observation tell a quite different story.”  (The Magician’ Twin, p. 27)

 Fueled by Darwinism, this sort of credulity conditions people to accept without question an inverted view of creation wherein,

 “…the oak coming from the acorn, the man from the spermatozoon, the modern steamship from the primitive coracle.  The supplementary truth that every acorn was dropped by an oak, every spermatozoon derived from a man, and the first boat by something so much more complex than itself as a man of genius, is simply ignored.” (ibid, pp. 26-27)

Lewis also saw that with its inverted account of origins, evolutionism, like Freudianism, promotes a “fatal self-contradiction” regarding the human mind.  Although modern science is to be based on logic, evidence and critical intellectual inquiry, according to the Darwinian view, life emerged from spontaneously generated non-living matter (chemicals), thus reason is “simply the unforeseen and unintended by-product of a mindless process at one stage of its endless and aimless becoming.”  Lewis points to the fatal self-contradiction of this claim:

If my own mind is a product of the irrational---if what seem my clearest reasoning’s are only the way in which a creature conditioned as I am is bound to feel---how shall I trust my mind when it tells me about Evolution?”  (ibid)

Lewis concluded that the fact that zealous adherents of the natural science and evolution viewpoint cannot by any effort be taught to see the fatal self-contradictions and other fallacies of their viewpoint confirmed his suspicion that,

“…we here touch a radical disease in their whole style of thought.” (ibid, p. 27)

In other words, why do they refuse to see that natural science and Darwinism are intrinsically evil?  And why do they accuse and crucify non-believers of being anti-science as  though they are blaspheming a god?

With respect to those who have simply swallowed whole natural science and evolution without question, the answer doubtless resides in stubborn pride, timidity, a need to be accepted at any cost and ambition.   It’s America’s intellectual, cultural and political self-designated ‘elites’ who are spiritually dead and warped. 

They utterly reject the living God Who exists outside the space-time dimension, thus like their father the devil their greatest concern has been to ridicule, mock, belittle and crush faithful Christians and Jews, creationists, and the belief that man is created in His spiritual image, therefore subject to Him, His Moral Law, and Judgment upon death of their bodies. 

 In his book, “America’s Ruling Class,” professor Angelo Codevilla writes that because the faith of the Ruling Class is in natural science (neo-pagan naturalism) and evolution they believe that middle class Americans are descended from apes, driven by chance, the environment, and the instinctual will to primacy. 

 As our Ruling Class are largely pantheists who believe they possess a share or spark of God’s Divine Substance resulting in self-worship, the crux of their problem is the incarnate God Jesus Christ, the living, personal God who presents to man an immediate form of the Absolute Creator God outside of the natural dimension, therefore discontinuous with man.  This means that no man shares the Divine Substance of God as all ancient and modern evolutionary pantheist nature systems hold.

The Incarnate God is near enough to man to be known, to know man’s most intimate thoughts and be consulted by way of prayer and petitions.  He imposes on man decisive limitations such as the finiteness of man’s mind, his fallen corrupted condition, and the two created sexes, male and female.  Upon death of the body, God passes judgment upon the immortal soul according to how he or she spent their time here on earth with the consequence of either eternal life in Paradise or eternity in outer darkness. 

America’s pagan Ruling Class cannot and will not tolerate the living Incarnate God yet are entirely comfortable with Gnostic pagan notions of an impersonal, unknowable god-substance or the quasi-Buddhist/Hindu New Age notion of a god-force immanent and/or identical with nature, therefore of man.  They are also comfortable with materialist conceptions of no God.  These concepts place immeasurable power in the hands of fallen, easily corruptible men which is why they most accommodate the self-idolatry, lust, covetousness, envy and wrath of the left-right Ruling Class Masters who hold unevolved middle class ‘apes’ in monstrous contempt and run rough-shod over them, riding them with bits, bridles, spurs and whips.

According to any of these positions, man becomes by default, either a highly evolved god-man or a god incarnate insofar as he occupies the supreme spiritual role in the universe.  Like the mad Red Queen, the god-man or god incarnate may idolize the absolute uniqueness and superiority of his thoughts, emotions, appetites, and enthusiasms.  In short, for both America’s Ruling Class pantheists and transnational New Age Masters of the Universe, these positions allow them to cherish the idolatrous notion that they are the Masters whose will to power is the highest form of thought, decision, or action.

As evolution disavows the Fall, the Masters praise Lucifer, who for them is not the devil but rather a being of good, the first free thinker, the liberator of man, seething force and angel of evolution while Jehovah God is an evil demiurge and Jesus Christ just another mortal after the fashion of Buddha.

America’s Ruling Class and transnational Masters aspire to transform our Western Christian republic into a syncretic multiracial, omni-gendered, multicultural, multilingual, multiethnic occult controlled communist-style empire that has no successful precedent in the history of the world.  

British historian Nesta Webster, author of "World Revolution" describes their transformational plan, which she calls Communism, as a program hitherto unprecedented in the history of civilization. The Plan calls for the total destruction of civilization as we know it with particular emphasis upon Western Christian civilization. Its' basic tenets are summarized in the following five points:

1. Abolition of all ordered governments and national boundaries

2. Abolition of private property and inheritances

3. Abolition of national boundaries and patriotism

4. Abolition of family life and the institution of Biblically instituted marriage, and the establishment of cradle-to-grave state-controlled communal education

5. Abolition of all religion with particular emphasis upon orthodox Christianity and faithful Judaism

Webster connects the Plan to Luciferian Illuminism and describes its shocking agenda:

"Communistic theories had been held by isolated thinkers or groups of thinkers since the days of Plato, but no one, as far as we know, had ever yet seriously proposed to destroy everything for which civilization stands. Moreover...the plan of Illuminism as codified by the above five points has continued up to the present day to form the exact programme of the World Revolution." (New World Order, William Still, p. 71)

According to the Plan, if all men everywhere are given complete liberty (amoral license) and equality (sameness) then peace and harmony will reign, thus for example, the Obama State Department aggressively promotes equality (sameness) between "gays" and straights here in America and across the globe. Its' latest target is the Czech Republic, where the Obama administration has joined with other "outside pressure groups" to push gay equality in the Czech Republic, in direct opposition to the will of the overwhelming majority of the Czech people. (121 Bravely Stand In Opposition To The Global Gay Agenda, 8/12/2012, Conservative American Online)

Webster points to a basic, important contradiction in the Plan that fosters revolution and chaos rather than peace and harmony. Since Cain murdered his brother Abel said Webster, murder has been tragically commonplace among men because no man is born good, as self-deceived advocates of the Plan believe. The truth is that all men are born self-centered hedonists possessed of an intrinsic need to seek pleasure, avoid pain, and engage in those activities that best accomplish both with the least amount of effort.

No man is born good.  In this light we can understand why the Plan fosters murder, genocide, revolution and chaos rather than peace and harmony. Thus Webster astutely observed:

"It is impossible to have complete liberty and equality, the two are mutually exclusive. It is possible to have a system of complete liberty in which every man is free to behave as he pleases, to rob or to murder, to live, according to the law of the jungle, rule by the strongest...there is no equality there. Or one may have a system of absolute equality, of cutting every one down to the same dead level, of crushing all incentive in man to rise above his fellows, but there is no liberty there." (Still, p. 71)

In the first instance, the Plan divinizes man and his darkest, most demonic passions, urges, appetites, and compulsions thus inflating self-idolatry, covetousness, hatred and envy which in turn lead to brutality and murder in the name of complete liberty, or license. Rule by the strongest, most conscienceless ends in the realm of what Saint Augustine calls libido dominandi---the realm of the earthly city ruled by envy, covetousness, lust for power, self-glory and self-gratification at the expense of the weakest.

Envy is the most-cold-blooded sin of all and when it becomes permissible, fashionable, and completely unbridled, it always leads to killing fields, gulags and concentration camps.

In his book, “Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior,” Helmut Schoeck calls our age the “age of envy.” By this he means that fewer people than ever are ashamed of being envious, seemingly believing that the fact of their envy is proof that social injustice has been done, that the envious one is in fact justified in verbally crucifying and seeking vengeance against the object of his envy.

With every passing day here in America and throughout the West, the primacy of envy comes that much closer to being granted. And once granted there can be no complaint when the grossest brutalities are committed in the name of tolerance, inclusion, diversity, gay rights, abortion, euthanasia, and genocide on behalf of ensuring proper observance of and submission to natural science and evolution, saving the planet and whatever other pseudo-values are esteemed by self-idolaters.

In the eyes of America's Masters it is already the case that since they share the Divine Substance of God and stand beyond good and evil, then they do not commit brutality merely because they want to dominate middle class 'apes,' seize their property, corrupt and sexualize their children, throw our borders open to evil-intentioned jihadis so they can blow up people and buildings, blaspheme God, and utterly destroy human objects of envy.  After all, if the object of envy, God Incarnate Jesus Christ, faithful Christians and successful people had not existed then neither would our envy-bitten Masters been 'caused' to crucify and kill them.

According to the Plan, evil and suffering are the fault of Jehovah God, just as it will be the fault of the resistant and all anti-science blasphemers who will eventually be exterminated by the highly evolved Masters as a necessary price to pay for human evolution.

Methodological Naturalism & Evolution: Signs of Man's Fall into Idolatry and Paganism

"Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18

In "Against the Heathen," early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and haughtiness preceded man's fall into idolatry and paganism. A haughty spirit led them to make light of the higher order knowledge of God, and deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began to seek in preference knowledge and other things in the lower or natural dimension. Thus they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher knowledge.

The truth as to evil said Athanasius,

"....is that it originates, and resides, 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)

Having descended into self-deception and superstition they imagined that "all that exists" is the natural dimension; void, primordial matter, animated natural powers, forces, energies and deterministic laws, all of which they celebrated and attributed miraculous powers to.  This lower order knowledge became the basis of both natural science and natural religion. So for example, with the Egyptians' self-created Sun-God Ra, the divine abyss or One Substance out of which he evolved is Nu — primordial matter:

"I came into being from primordial matter...I made all the forms under which I appeared by means of (or out of) the god-soul which I raised up out of Nu (i.e., the primeval abyss of water.) (The Long War Against God, Dr. Henry Morris, p. 243)

This is pagan naturalism, or in modern terminology, scientific materialism and/or methodological naturalism. Like the ancient pagan seedbed out of which it emerged, naturalism teaches a one-dimensional view of reality that excludes the supernatural dimension: the living Holy God, soul/spirit; angels, heaven and hell.   Only the natural dimension exists, thus evolutionary materialist Dr. Scott Todd wrote in the science journal 'Nature:'

"Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such a hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic." (Naturalism in the Light of Reality, Robert Gurney, creation.com, June 14, 2012)

Early last century, Hugh Elliot triumphantly described our age of natural science as an age of materialism:

Ours is a scientific age, and it may be said with truth that we are all materialists now.” (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, xiv)

Materialism is of the pagan worldview of monism held in common by pantheism and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems including Baha’i, Scientology, Eastern Hinduism, Buddhism and Mormonism. 

Joseph Smith taught that matter is eternal and the Mormon God, having no power to create ex nihilo, merely reorganizes eternally existing elements:

 “Since Mormons believe that the elements are eternal, it follows that they deny the ex nihilo creation.” (Encyclopedia of Mormonism 1:400) 

As the constant companion of materialist systems is evolution, it is no surprise that Smith espoused evolutionary thinking:

 “…you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves…the same as all Gods have done before you, namely by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one…” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 345-47)

Greek Stoics and Epicureans were materialist monists and these two schools of natural science and evolution held the ancient world of thought well into the Roman Empire.  Epicureanism reigns supreme in our own ‘age of science’ through methodological naturalism and/or scientific materialism.

The pagan philosopher Epicurus (342-270 B.C.) believed in an infinite number of parallel universes or multiverse theories in the words of contemporary pagan materialists such as Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees.

Neo-pagan materialism is an ancient superstition revised and revamped for our “age of science.”  Its’ nihilistic view holds that everything is a property of matter in motion, thus it teaches that life and even rational life must have evolved from eternally existing matter or non-life bearing chemicals. Not only is mind (spirit) a property of matter but earth is one entire organism whose organs are the various races and nations of men.  (Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics, Chapter II: The Constitution of Man as a Political Organism)

Not only is the earth alive and evolving upward on evolution’s magical escalator to the mystical, magical Omega, but so too are the Bible, Christianity, history and society, for they also are living entities in a continuous state of change. And man? In a modified conception of ancient Greek Atomism’s dehumanizing view of man, dialectical materialism states that man is nothing but:

“…a colonial aggregation of cells,” and to “consider him an individual would be an error.”

Man--the aggregate of cells-- is nothing but an extension of society, history, and earth. (ibid, Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics)

 Scientific materialists from Julien de la Mettrie (1709-51) and Paul Henri Thiery to Baron D’Holbach (1723-89) all agreed that mind (soul/spirit) is the property of matter in motion and man nothing but a machine. La Mettrie speculated that the rational life of machine-man is entirely determined by physical causes that run the gamut from raw meat, to climate, blood circulation, and gender. Genetic inheritance, posits la Mettrie, causes machine-man to think bad thoughts and commit crime. (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, pp. 16-18)

This view casts parents, skin color, gender, political affiliation, and even ‘thoughts’ into the role of “first cause” and would later manifest in the belief that State ‘experts,’ or Hillary’s “village” experts should have the ‘scientific’ control over and the politically correct programming of the minds of children lest they think wrong thoughts and commit genetically-caused hate crime such as homophobia, racism, xenophobia and conservatism.

Even worse: they may commit the blasphemy of being anti-scientific and evolution.

Pierre Simon Laplace (1749-1827) viewed scientific materialism as not only the pursuit of God-like omniscience but of the Holy Grail itself-—power to create a New Man.

If an intelligence could grasp,

 “…at a given instant...all the forces by which nature is animated” proclaimed Laplace, it could devise a mathematical formula that would predict everything that would ever happen, and “nothing would be uncertain, and the future, like the past, would be open to its eyes.”

Scientists should reduce everything in the universe to mechanical laws that could be expressed in terms of mathematics, advised Laplace, for the promise of such knowledge was incredible power...even over life and mind itself. (ibid, p. 20)

Herbert Spencer, Fechner, Lotze, Wundt, and pantheist Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the scientism dictum-—ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny-—all agreed that life and mind are properties of matter. Haeckel moreover imagined ether to be the primitive life-making substance which, as was the case with the primitive fire of the Stoics, changed one part of itself into inert mass while the other part became the active evolutionary principle. Today, many scientists routinely resort to Haeckel’s postulate without ever inquiring into its mystical pantheist implications.

Haeckel would later write,

Pantheism teaches that God and the world are one...pantheism is...an advanced conception of nature (and) a polite form of atheism.” The truth of pantheism, confessed Haeckel, “lies in its destruction of the dualist antithesis of God...” The godless world system being constructed, said Haeckel, “substantially agrees with the monism or pantheism of the modern scientist.” (Monism, Ernst Haeckel, www.pantheist.net/)

During the century to follow, Charles Darwin (1809-82) helped spread new pagan materialism/methodological naturalism to the masses. As Stephen Jay Gould argues,

Darwin applied a consistent philosophy of materialism to his interpretation of nature, “and “the ground of all existence; mind, spirit, and God (are reduced to) neural complexity.” (ibid, Darwin Day, p. 41)

Darwin received the idea of evolution from his pantheist grandfather Erasmus Darwin. However, neither man is the originator of evolution.  Ancient pagans are.  This is the conclusion reached by Henry Fairfield Osborn, longtime director of the American Museum of Natural History.  In the introduction to his history of evolutionism Osborn wrote:   

When I began the search for anticipations of the evolutionary theory…I was led back to the Greek natural philosophers and I was astonished to find how many of the pronounced and basic features of the Darwinian theory were anticipated even as far back as the seventh century B.C.” (From the Greeks to Darwin, p. xi)

In his updated version of ancient pagan nature science and evolutionary thinking, Darwin argues that natural selection and the laws of heredity (mystical energies and deterministic fates) acting on matter produced mind, morality, and civilization. By describing how (mystical) natural mechanisms caused the complexity of life to emerge from matter, Darwin helped transform neo-pagan materialism from a fantastically bizarre tale told by power-mad Prometheans on the fringe of society to a hallowed scientism principle enshrined and worshipped by modern methodological materialists, like-minded ‘scientifically enlightened’ Westerners and evolutionary theists such as John Polkinghorne. 

Having discarded the supernatural dimension (higher things of God), Polkinghorne has recast supernatural Christianity as a natural theology grounded in evolution and a sophisticated conception of dual-aspect monism that reduces God to the role of engine starter, meaning God lit the fuse of the Big Bang.  

 Social Darwinism, Progressivism, Socialism, Marxist Communism, Nazism, Secular Humanism, Transhumanism and today’s holistic green pantheism and New Age conceptions of spiritual communism are developed out of scientific materialism.

Of these, Marxist Communism (dialectical materialism) is considered to be the most highly developed philosophy of materialism. It rests on three fundamental metaphysical presuppositions:

1. Dialectical Matter: The Ultimate One Substance which, though non-living, non-intelligent, and non-conscious, nevertheless somehow possesses the emergent properties of life, mind, consciousness, and soul.  Dialectical matter is ‘divine’ ‘thinks’ ‘chooses,’ and ‘acts.’

2. Evolution: Since Marxist dialectic requires a theory with clashes (thesis and antithesis) and leaps (synthesis), Marxist oriented scientists and like-minded thinkers have all but abandoned vulgar Darwinism and instead embraced punctuated equilibrium:

Many people confound dialectic with the theory of evolution,” noted G. Plekhanov. “Dialectic is, in fact, a theory of evolution. But it differs profoundly from the vulgar (Darwinian) theory of evolution.” (Fundamental Problems of Marxism, 1929, p. 145)

3. Big Bang/Spontaneous Generation: An offshoot of specifically Darwinian thought accepted unreservedly by Marxists as their dialectic requires a strictly materialist explanation for the origin of life from non-living matter. In the words of M.A. Leonov:

Marxist philosophical materialism remains beyond all doubt that at some time or other in the remote past, life must have arisen from non-living matter.” (Outline of Dialectical Materialism, 1948, p. 494) 

The Unresolvable Problem: the Origin of Life

In modern ‘scientific’ terms, the idea that life emerged from spontaneously generated brute matter in much the same way as Ra spontaneously created himself from primordial matter is called abiogenesis.   

However, abiogenesis is such an embarrassment that today some methodological naturalists such as SETI researcher Paul Davies and Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the DNA molecule, have abandoned it in favor of panspermia.  Panspermia is the ridiculous notion that life on earth was accidentally seeded by meteorites or perhaps by highly evolved space brothers who for billions of years have been guiding the evolution of men.  This notion was favored by Arthur C. Clarke in his science fiction novel, “Childhood’s End.”  A variation on this theme was advanced recently by Davies who has written seriously about the possibility of “alien bioengineering.”  (An Alien Code Close to Home: Seeking ET Beyond the Radio Silence, Astrobiology Magazine, Jeremy Hsu, 10/27/2011) 

Equally silly is Francis Crick’s theory called “directed panspermia,” the notion that life on earth began when space brothers sent a rocket ship containing spores to seed the earth.  Crick admits however that his theory only pushes the unresolvable problem of the origin of life out into deep space: 

This scenario still leaves open the question of who designed the designers (aliens) ---how did life originally originate?” (Life Itself: Its Origin and Nature, Crick, 1981) 

Methodological naturalism (materialist monism) and evolutionary conceptions are not signs of higher order thinking lending itself to greater heights of development but rather of the fall of Western and American civilization into the lower order knowledge of paganism that reappeared in the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance. 

In “The Abolition of Man” (1974) C.S. Lewis points out that the Renaissance reawakened a magical view of the world closely connected with pagan Gnostic sectarianism, Hermetic magic, astrology, Eastern pantheism and alchemical scientism.  Accompanying all of this was evolution, occultism, Epicureanism, reincarnation and karma.

Evolution is both the antithesis of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and the primary doctrine of both Eastern pantheism and Western scientific materialism, and early on Lewis understood that both movements were merely two sides of the same pagan revival.  Thus he argued that pantheism and materialism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies united against the supernatural Holy God, His Revelation, creation ex nihilo, unchanging truth and moral law, and Christian-based civilization. 

What this means is that methodological naturalism, evolution, abiogenesis, chance, natural selection, multiverse and panspermia theories are but seven contemporary adaptations of the ancient pagan idolatry into which our ancestors fell.  These seven are just a few examples of a whole host of fallacies derived from modern natural science and evolutionary thinking that have permeated the post-Christian West and American society giving birth to a ‘new’ pagan religion of evolutionary science and natural theology dressed in Christian terminology.

Pride goes before a fall, thus like our pagan ancestors proud naturalists have forgotten that this world, the entire cosmos-—its elements, dark matter, quarks and all else-—is passing away and will ultimately be subjected to a cleansing fire just prior to its renewal. In this light methodological naturalism and its primary doctrine evolution is but fallacious lower order knowledge of this world and cosmos in its present but passing state and brings no comfort to the soul. It cannot save and deliver the soul.

It is a tragic sign of our inverted age that lower order knowledge is elevated over ‘higher order knowledge that saves’----Christian theology in general and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in particular.

Our Savior warned us to strive to enter in at the strait gate (Luke 13: 24) and only the higher order knowledge of our Lord will allow us to enter in at that gate.
