The Politics of Poneros, the Sons of Belial, Macrosocial Evil, Persecution and Martyrdom‏

"Political Ponerology" is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej M. Łobaczewski 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." (ibid, Malcolm Muggeridge, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)
 
 "Food is a weapon." (ibid, 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)
 
 A coalition of atheist pagan Jews (Bolsheviks) and atheist pagan Gentiles (Marxist Communists) systematically stole the personal property of Russians and sexually perverted their children and conditioned them to hate the Trinity, Jesus Christ God Incarnate in particular, as well as their own parents, the Christian church and their homeland.  The sons of Belial 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) 
 
 In this light we can understand why Lobaczewskis' original manuscript quickly went into the furnace just minutes before a secret police raid.  In 1984 the manuscript was reassembled, but according to Lobaczewski, its publication was blocked by technocratic globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski.  After half a century of suppression it is finally available.
 
 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 envy and will to power---or what Lobaczewski terms 'ponerogenic processes'  that overtook modern Russia and have overtaken whole societies and nations since time immemorial.
 
 When ponerogenic processes have finally saturated a society's entire ruling class and opposition from morally convicted people has been crushed, then we are dealing with what Lobaczewski calls Macrosocial Evil or a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." (p. 121)
 
Ponerogenic processes are synonymous with the unfettered, vastly inflamed sin nature of man beginning with inflated pride issuing in covetousness, selfishness, ingratitude, jealousy, resentment and hate, all of which early Church Fathers combined into the cold-blooded vice known as envy.   Thus when 'macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon' has saturated a nation's ruling class and most of its society it means that a tyranny of evil fueled by poneros has overtaken it.   Poneros 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, Gregory of Nyssa, quoted in Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. 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." (ibid)
 
Scripture attributes poneros to the Evil One, the leader of all forces of evil.   The Evil One is the spirit of rebellion and negation, the father of lies, "the adversary" "the accuser,"  "calumniator" and undiluted essence of envy who works through the principle of negation and rebellion in the fallen souls of lawless natural men:
 
 "The evil man out of his evil treasure bringeth forth evil (poneros) things" Matthew 12:35
 
 Poneros  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 and 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)  
 
 Poneros is also the spirit animating British philosopher Adam Smith's sophistry, that is, his phony concern postured in sophisticated questions and 'evidence' such as,
 
 "Is having a loving family an unfair advantage?"  "Should parents snuggling up for one last story before lights out be even a little concerned about the advantage they might be conferring?"  
 
"Evidence shows that the difference between those who get bedtime stories and those who don't - the difference in their life chances - is bigger than the difference between those who get elite private schooling and those that don't." (Parents reading to kids blasted as 'unfair,' Joe Kovacs, WND, May, 2015)
 
 Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. captures the spirit of poneros in his brilliantly conceived short story, "Harrison Bergeron,"
 
 "THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General."   
 
 As a tyranny of poneros had overtaken and led to the degradation and implosion of ancient Greek society, an exploration of Greek thought with regard to types of envy will prove enlightening. The first type is 'zelos,' a kind of envy stirred up by any perceived superiority (inequality).  In the poem, 'Work and Days,' Isocrates presents the spirit of zelos as "with grim face and screaming voice, who delights in evil" and causes Decency and Respect to flee. (1)  The anonymous author "Michael Swift" warns of this very thing in a widely circulated article called "Gay Revolutionary."  In prose that chills the spine Swift warns the envied straight community that the men of Sodom shall be victorious,
 
 "..because we are filled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages...We too are capable of firing guns and manning barricades of the ultimate revolution....Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks."  (Spirit Wars: Pagan Revival in Christian America, Peter Jones, p. 255)
 
 Empowered by spineless, accommodating jellies throughout our seminaries, pulpits, government and courts, the envy-bitten men and women of modern Sodom maliciously terrorize Christian bakers, florists, bed and breakfast owners and other decent, law-abiding straight males and females, forcing them to either submit or be crushed even as the men of Sodom openly rape the souls and bodies of their sons and daughters in churches, schools, and elsewhere. (Envy and the Greeks: A Study of Human Behavior, Peter Walcot, pp. 2-3 from Death by Envy, Fr. George R. A. Aquaro, p. 12)
 
 As the Holy Triune God is the "moral monster" responsible for the poor choices, weaknesses, sin nature and failures of the self-pitying, self-absorbed and envy-bitten, zelos is also the spirit behind the 'murder' of the Christian God, the closing off of the supernatural dimension and the Way to Paradise with the requisite suppression of His Revelation to man, the miracle of Special Creation, Original Sin, Moral Law, immutable Truth, judgment, and hell. Thus zelos is the lying, hateful, intolerant spirit behind the elevation of evolutionary scientism above the inerrant Word of God. 
 
 Zelos animates back-stabbing gossip, slander, snooping, spying, tale-bearing, the politics of personal destruction as well as special rights and privileges for the so-called oppressed (envy-bitten).  Zelos demands redistribution of wealth, egalitarian sameness issuing in loss of gender identity (i.e., mother, father, husband, wife) in favor of gender-neutral terms such as 'partner.' It demands same-sex marriage, absolute inclusion and tolerance, 'legalized' illegal immigration, the mandated sexualization and perversion of our youth by pan-sexual and omni-gendered sexologists, and a hob-nailed boot viciously crushing the faces of envied "oppressors."  
 
Morally, zelos is the venom behind America's reigning Pharisaic legalism: political correctness, hate crime laws, speech codes, gender equality, economic equality, and sensitivity training.  In 'political' terms, green-eyed zelos is the spirit of green multiculturalism, green ecology, green sustainability, green 'family planning,' green global warming/cooling/change, green socialism and green diversity.
 
 In "Diversity': The Idol of Academia," Jack Kerwick describes diversity as a 'god' that is as educationally invidious as it is false:
 
"Diversity" is not just a good in the academic world. It is the supreme good, the one good before which all other considerations must yield...."cultural diversity" not only doesn't correspond to a rise in intellectual diversity; it invariably corresponds to a rise in political uniformity. This is crucial, for the promotion of "cultural diversity" is nothing more or less than the promotion of a left-wing ideological agenda."  (June 26, 2014 Jack Kerwick, Front Page Magazine)
 
Zelos in its every malignant, sadistic permutation is the green-eyed spirit behind left-wing ideology and its' totalitarian fantasy:
 
 "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." (Winston Churchill, British orator, author and Prime Minister during World War II, 1874-1965)
 
 "When I say that Marxism is based on envy, I mean that the glorious revolution of the proletariat...was really a promise to put a final end to all the conditions that make for envy." (Joseph Epstein, author and former editor of The American Scholar, from Truths about Socialism, Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)
 
After zelos come philotimia and hybris.   In Greek mythology, philotimia is narcissism--love of self, love of attention, love of self-affirmation, love of self-gratification-- while hybris is the arrogance, insolence, contempt, insult, shame, hatred and mistreatment of human objects of envy by a sadistic narcissist. In Greece, philotemia and hybris were on display when the gods and their earthly counterparts punished inferior 'subhumans' for usurping their authority as well as when they struggled amongst themselves for positions of primacy.   In America, philotimia and hybris are visible when America's left-right 'ruling class' god-men try to destroy each other in their vicious power struggles among themselves. These two green-eyed monsters, philotemia/hybris are on display whenever the god-men's lapdog media engage in vicious psychological bullying and other malicious forms of mistreatment of stupid, unevolved hominids --the hard-working middle class, especially the Tea Party and God-fearing orthodox Christians and faithful Jews---the so-called oppressors.  
 
 Philotimia/hybris is also the spirit animating the intolerant, hateful attitudes of evolutionary theologians toward defenders of the Revealed Word of God beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo. 
 
 Phthonos is the fourth type of envy/covetousness.  Phthonos seeks to deprive envied 'other' of possessions, honor, status, spiritual gifts and virtues.  Phthonos for example, is the diabolical Darwinian reductionism of man in his Creator's spiritual image to ape.  It is the green-eyed totalitarian spirit of Agenda 21 together with save the earth and re-wilding schemes that elevate crocodiles, trash fish, and other creatures above the welfare of human beings.

Phthonos animates carbon footprint schemes, population control plans, passive euthanasia (refusal of health care to targeted Obama care recipients), the attempted theft of Bundy's ranch and other private property and resources.  Phthonos is driven not just to ostracize and confiscate but to use psychological manipulation (i.e., lies, false guilt, slander, propaganda, scape-goating) and other terroristic force to take or deprive 'other' of whatever is coveted/envied.  
 
 Phthonos will even drive a man (i.e., Cain) to murder his own brother, to "murder" the Holy God (i.e., Nimrod, Karl Marx) and Jesus Christ God Incarnate (Nietzsche).
 
 After ancient Greece had been overtaken by the spirit of poneros, the egalitarian, collectivist, or leveling impulse served to help relieve an envy-torn culture by leveling all men down to the lowest common denominator.  This 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) 
 
 The fifth type of envy is vaskonia or Evil Eye (ophthalmos poneros) and means something even more malignant than phthonos.    Vaskonia bespeaks an evil spirit associated with demonic possession and the malign touch or glance of which leaves a soiled imprint and implies instant victimization and death.   Vaskonia is inherently sudden, meaning one wrong word, one wrong expression, or the impulse of a moment is all it takes to become the victim of the Evil Eye.
 
 As a whole, Scripture combines envy with hatred of the Holy God and one's brother, which means that there can be no love whatsoever where there is envy and hatred in one's heart.
 
 Today increasing numbers of Americans at every level of society, on both left and right, Christian and secular, are controlled by their passions unfettered from the restraint of transcendent moral law.   Adding to the problem are 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..."  ( pp. 2-3)
 
  The most frightening aspect of America's descent into moral imbecility, narcissism, heresy, apostasy, pathological lying, 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 poneros 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)

Judgment
 
 In "Idols for Destruction" Herbert Schlossberg proposes that we use idolatry as a framework for comprehension of the evil and persecution sweeping over and through our post-Christian society. (p. 34)   The biblical explanation for moral imbecility and narcissism in connection with the end of society resides in the concept of judgment upon an idolatrous people (Ro. 1:28-32):  
 
 "Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you...saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known..."   (Deut. 13: 13; Judges 19: 22, 20:13; 1 Sam. 1:16, 2:12, 10:27, 25:17, 25:25, 30:22; 2 Sam. 16:7, 20:1, 23:6; 1 Kings 21:10, 21:13; 2 Chron. 6:15, 13:7)
 
 Scripture depicts a societies' people as either having submitted themselves to the Triune God or else as idolaters (sons of Belial) who having rebelled against Him have been delivered by Him over to worthless, useless, hardened, loveless minds.  This is how the Old Testament portrays Israel.  Israel had become an evil nation of idolaters fully deserving the judgment the Lord brought against it.  Its' rebellion was accompanied by a turning to idols (which can also be idols of mind such as scientism and evolutionary cosmogonies) and this idolatry brought the nation to it's' end.
 
 The Decalogue shows that the beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over the Holy Trinity and neighbor). The will of the proud man is not in submission to the Trinity but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses 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 vices: pathological lying, treachery, murderous thoughts, gluttony, greed, covetousness, 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, mass-murder (genocide) and man-made famines.
 
 In the final analysis, malice and envy towards the Holy Trinity compels man to destroy creation and to annihilate his God-given soul/spirit by imagining himself as 'one' with the evolving universe of matter and energy. This is the definition of damnation, said Fr. Aquaro. Hell is not a punishment meted out by a hateful Holy 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:
 
 "The man wakes from the final struggle of death, in absolute loneliness...Not a hint, not a shadow of anything outside his consciousness reaches him...Soon misery will beget on his imagination a thousand shapes of woe, which he will not be able to rule, direct, or even distinguish from real presences." (C.S. Lewis: George MacDonald, an Anthology, p. 61)

1. Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. Aquaro

The Lawless One: Psychopath Par Excellence

Roy Hazelwood was one of the original profilers when the Behavioral Science Unit was first developed at Quantico. He served with the FBI for twenty-two years, taught courses at the Academy, the University of Virginia, the University of Pennsylvania, the U. S. Military Police CID, the Southern Police Institute and is also a board certified forensic examiner and a commentator for The Forensic Echo.  Hazelwood is now Affiliate Professor of Administrative Justice at George Mason University and has appeared as an expert on criminal investigations on numerous radio and television shows.

In his book, "Dark Dreams" Hazelwood discusses an infinite number of deviant sexual behaviors, different combinations of sexual behaviors and dark fantasies that can be merged into a single crime. In the chapter titled, "The Infinity of Darkness" he examines the role that fantasy plays in sexual crimes and how offenders act out those fantasies using wives, girlfriends, and other human prey as well as inanimate objects. Other chapters deal with bringing the fantasy to reality in various criminal activities such as sexual sadism, serial murder, serial rape and, of course, profiling of possible prey.

One of his favorite chapters is titled "Am I God?"  It deals with the role of narcissism in sexual crimes and with one particular criminal who wrote a lengthy manuscript in which he described four murders in detail, and because of his power over life and death, questioned whether or not he was God. (Roy Hazelwood: Profiler of Sexual Crimes trutv.com)

Hazelwood observes that most successful sexual sadists are narcissists who believe they are superior to society in general and law enforcement in particular. They come to believe they can't get caught, so they engage in greater and greater risk taking. This serves two purposes: to prove they are superior and to maintain the "high" they get from committing crimes.

As a Christian, Hazelwoods' profound insight into the mind of sexual sadists is grounded in St. Augustine's view of man as the three-part spiritual image-bearer of the Holy Triune God as well as his teaching on sin, which Augustine says is not caused by the flesh (bodily/soulish senses) but by the spirit (intellect, will). Thus all sin is of a spiritual nature said Augustine.

Hazelwood studied St. Augustine's writings where he spoke of the five steps that men and women take to act in a sinful way. Sin originates in the intellect (spirit), and then moves to the senses for approval. The consequences are considered, the will makes a decision to act, and the mind rationalizes the behavior. Hazelwood realized that if he replaced the word 'sin' with the word 'crime' he could apply it to his work and lectures:

"The sexual criminal fantasizes about a criminal act, and if the idea is pleasing to his senses, touch, sight, etc. he considers the consequences of what might happen and then decides to act. Finally, he rationalizes his behavior for having committed the crime...I wouldn't have done it if..."

Hazelwood adds that:

"....sexual fantasy is nothing more than the mental imagery of a desired event. You conjure up in your mind something you want to do. Fortunately for society, most of us do not act on those fantasies. Yet some do, with horrendous results."

Sexual sadism is a spiritual problem, therefore Hazelwood discounts current criminal reform treatment programs.  These programs are grounded in the erroneous Darwinian idea that man is an evolved ape together with Freuds' fatalistic explanation that anger, perversion, rage, jealousy, hatred, envy, and other destructive impulses are caused by chemical changes in the brain, genetic neurological predispositions and social factors in upbringing.    

The truth about sexual sadism is that it is freely chosen "immediate gratification" said Hazelwood, adding that he once asked a serial rapist,

"If the death penalty was the punishment for your crime, would you still have committed the offense?' He told me that he would have."

Sexual sadism, said Hazelwood, is a rationalized willful choice that,

 "...goes back to the idea that there are no absolutes, the infinity of darkness." 

Sexual sadism belongs to the category known today as psychopathy. Psychopaths are sometimes described as conscienceless, meaning their conscience is so filthy and polluted it is in effect dead. As conscience is a component of spirit,  talk-therapy, medications and other reform methods are unable to cleanse and reawaken conscience.

Psychopaths are manipulative, meaning that because they hold other people in contempt, they freely use them for purposes of self-gratification. Other common characteristics include: narcissism, moral relativism (no absolutes), sense of entitlement, parasitism, bullying, casual cruelty, pleasure at inflicting pain, insensitivity, dishonesty, pathological lying, aggression, impulsiveness, and irresponsibility .

The Scientific American reports with alarm that psychpaths are,

"....overrepresented in prisons (and) research also suggests that a sizable number of psychopaths may be walking among us in everyday life. Some investigators have even speculated that "successful psychopath” (meaning) those who attain prominent positions in society may be overrepresented in certain occupations, such as politics, business and entertainment." (What "Psychopath" Means)

And let us not overlook the authors of the article, 'After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?" Dr. Alberto Giubilini and Dr Francesca Minerva, who with a total lack of conscience, empathy, and remorse, cold-bloodedly advised that:

"Parents should be allowed to have newborn babies killed as it is no different from abortion (because they) are not 'actual persons' and do not have a 'moral right to life..." ("Killing of newborn babies is acceptable, say doctors," independent.ie)

 If instead of "psychopath" the phrase "lawless natural man" is used, then we have a description of the evil-state of spiritually dead men in the last days:
 
"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy." 2 Tim. 3:2, KJB

Lawless natural men have,

"... have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumbling block of their iniquity before their face…. (Ezekiel 14:3)  
 
Lawless natural man will be irresistibly drawn to and captivated by the Lawless One, Satan's earthly representative.  The Lawless One is the psychopath par excellence described by Paul as the 'man of iniquity, son of perdition.' He is the son of the Evil One because he has espoused the spirit of the devil. The great philosophical and theological scholar Vladimir Soloviev describes him as,
 
"...a remarkable man---many called him superhuman...He believed in God (as did Marx, Nietzsche and Teilhard de Chardin), but at the bottom of his heart (he) preferred himself to Him. (Yahwah) knew that he would bow down before the powers of evil, as soon as it had corrupted him...by caressing his boundless pride." At the beginning, the Antichrist "had no hostility toward Jesus...but (like Mahomet) he saw in Him merely the greatest of his own predecessors." Since I have superceded Him, "I am the perfect and final savior. The first Christ was my forerunner...(therefore, why should I) have to bow before Him like the most stupid of Christians...I, the bright genius, the superman! No, never!"  (Wrath of God, Livio Fanzaga, pp. 36-37, 40, emphasis added)
 
His unbounded pride, defiance, arrogant conceit, contempt and moral relativism are characteristic of his perversity and the reason for his unbelief in the Holy Triune God. He in fact believes that he is God incarnate among men. He is a man of modern evolutionary scientism--- the powerful instruments of his will by which he worships himself, makes himself equal to God and holds the power of life and death in his hands.  He is a powerful seducer, so powerful in fact that even believers will be deceived if possible.
 
The Lawless One suffers the same envy of God that transformed Lucifer into a demon, the Evil One, the father of all psychopaths. The sin of Lucifer (and of Hegel, Karl Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler) was that he could not abide the idea of God's existence since he wished to become God. The Lawless One's sin ( Nietzsches) consists in being unable to tolerate the idea that Jesus Christ, a greater man than himself exists.

Spiritual sin, beginning with pride, jealousy and covetousness quickly inflating to envy, are the common bonds linking Satan, with increasing numbers of his earthly representatives, from the Lawless One to all who have been infected with the same venom of the serpent.

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 Unforgivable Blasphemy: the Pharisees & Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor as Exemplars

He that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness.”  Mark 3:29

The doctrine of the Holy Trinity defines the One God in three Persons, God the Father, God the Son Incarnate and God the Holy Spirit—the one true, personal Triune God Who spoke all things of creation, seen (material) and unseen (time, space, life, spirit, law) ex nilo, meaning from nothing. The second Person, Jesus Christ the Son, perfectly fulfills the Law and Prophets from the pre-flood world to our own and is God incarnate (John 1:1), the Truth, the Way and the Life, for life and salvation are only of the living Triune God and no other.

The Holy Spirit is associated with the Triune God’s divine actions, such as creation, judgment, miracles, prophecy, cleansing, sanctioning, and justifying: Matthew 16:17, Mark 12:36, Luke 1:67, John 16:13, John 14:26, 1 Tim. 4:1,  Romans 8:9-11. (The Holy Spirit and the Trinity, tektonics.org)
 
Before proceeding, we must clearly understand what the unforgivable blasphemy is not.

To begin, Scripture reveals that the One God in three Persons knows your spirit (mind, will, conscience) better than anyone, including yourself:

God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us.” (Acts 15:8; also 1 Chronicles 29:17; Jeremiah 11:20; John 2: 24-25; Psalms 44:21, 139:1-2)
 
This means for example that if at one time,  like C.S. Lewis after the death of his wife, you felt great anger against the Holy Spirit after the death of a loved one and accused Him of causing you to suffer, leading you (like Lewis) to turn away from Him for a time, Jesus’s Blood nevertheless atones for you because God Who knows your spirit knows you, like Lewis, really love Him and that you didn’t mean it. (Acts 13:39).

Respected Christian theologian Dr. F.F. Bruce elaborates,

“…Speaking against the Son of man might be due to a failure to recognize Him for what He is. So Paul recalls how in his pre-Christian days he thought it his duty to oppose the name of Jesus of Nazareth. But if, having seen the light on the Damascus road, he had deliberately closed his eyes to it and kicked out against the goad which was directing him into the true path, that would have been the sin against the Holy Spirit.....The Holy Spirit persuades and enables men to accept Christ and enjoy the saving benefits of the gospel (John 16:8; 1 Cor. 2:14; Acts 7:51), but if anyone refuses to submit to the Spirit’s gracious constraint, preferring to call good evil and evil good, how can the gospel avail for him? The deliberate refusal of the grace of God is the one sin which by its very nature is irremediable.” (F.F. Bruce, Answers to Questions, 1973, pp. 46-47; christiananswers.net)

For all who humbly repent of their sins and confess with their mouth,

“....Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” (Romans 10:9-10)

Now to the unforgivable blasphemy:

Anyone who rejects the Holy Spirit’s convicting influence and does not repent will not be forgiven, ‘neither in this world, neither in the world to come. Matthew 12:32” (Ray Comfort, “The Unpardonable Sin,” The Evidence Bible, 2001, ibid)

 “And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” (Matthew 12:31-34)

Jesus regards blasphemy against the Holy Spirit as permanently rejecting His identity (Matthew 12:18) as attested by the Spirit's works (12:28). (Craig S. Keener, The IVP Bible Background Commentary, New Testament, 1993, p. 80)

By “blaspheming” the Holy Spirit, Jesus refers to all unrepentant sinners who deny the divine authority and activity of the Holy Spirit by which they reject His identity. This also applies to those who refuse the prodding of the Holy Spirit to believe the Gospel and repent of their sin:

"For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins." (Hebrews 10:29). 

The sin of the Pharisees (Mark 3:30) was clearly against the Holy Spirit.  Long had they watched and listened to  Jesus Christ. They observed him doing undeniable and powerful miracles that were clear evidence of power supplied by God to raise people from the dead and release others from obvious suffering and demonic infestation and possession.

However, in their pride, suspicion, doubt, and envy the Pharisees had so firmly set their hearts against accepting Jesus as the Messiah that they rejected the obvious truth before them and perversely twisted it in their publicly stated attribution of the power supplied by God to the most ultimately evil being in the universe. In other words, they called the Holy Spirit of God the unclean spirit of Satan and in effect, charged Jesus Christ of being a sorcerer in league with Satan.

Today the power supplied by God is routinely attributed to evolution by science-worshipping atheist humanists and certain theologians who in effect make Jesus Christ into a charlatan.

As Augustine said, "quoddam dictum, quaedam blasphemia," meaning their blasphemy consisted, not of words spoken rashly or ignorantly, but of murderous words spoken maliciously in order to destroy Christ.

Dr. Henry Morris clarifies the true nature of the Pharisees’ sin:

The unforgivable sin of speaking against the Holy Spirit has been interpreted in various ways, but the true meaning cannot contradict other Scripture. It is unequivocally clear that the one unforgivable sin is permanently rejecting Christ (John 3:18; 3:36). Thus, speaking against the Holy Spirit is equivalent to rejecting Christ with such finality that no future repentance is possible. ‘My spirit shall not always strive with man,’ God said long ago. Genesis 6:3."

"…In the context of this particular passage (Matthew 12: 22-32), Jesus had performed a great miracle of creation, involving both healing and casting out a demon, but the Pharisees rejected this clear witness of the Holy Spirit. Instead they attributed His powers to Satan, thus demonstrating an attitude permanently resistant to the Spirit, and to the deity and saving Gospel of Christ.” (Henry M. Morris, The Defender’s Study Bible, 1995)

While envious men might cruelly slander and destroy the spiritual virtues of a servant of Christ and be very near the unpardonable sin, it is not the man that makes the difference but the source of the blasphemy.  If the source is ignorance, misconception, or ill-informed prejudice, then blasphemy is equally pardonable with other sins.  But if the source be malice rooted in envy and hatred of Truth then the sin is not against the servant of Christ but against the Holy Spirit who inspires him. 

 Using the Pharisees as an example, Jesus Christ speaks of a spirit (mind, will, conscience) so proud, rebellious, depraved and unrepentant that it refuses to listen to anything the Holy Spirit tells it.  Instead, it chooses to remain forever in unbelief and is even capable of accusing the Son of having Satan in Himself. Such a spirit is guilty of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit:
 
But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed” (Romans 2:5).
 
Hebrews 6:4-6 exemplifies the blasphemy of conceptual murderers of the Holy Triune God beginning with Nimrod and much later Karl Marx, the father of the devilish Communist Manifesto, Freud and Nietzsche together with intellectually arrogant apostatizing priests:

"Having ceased to be a minister of Christ, he who is represented by this star becomes the minister of the devil; and lets loose the powers of hell against the churches of Christ."  (Concise Commentary, Matthew Henry)

It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.”  (Hebrews 6:4)
 
In his youth Karl Marx professed to be a Christian.  In his work, “The Union of the Faithful with Christ,” we read,

Through love of Christ we turn our hearts at the same time toward our brethren who are inwardly bound to us and for whom He gave Himself in sacrifice.”  (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 11)
 
In his thesis, “Considerations of a Young Man on Choosing His Career,” Marx writes that Christianity teaches that Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself for all men and He is the Ideal toward which all men strive:
 
“…and who shall dare contradict such claims?  If we have chosen the position in which we can accomplish the most for Him, then we can never be crushed by burdens, because they are only sacrifices made for the sake of all.”  (ibid, p. 11)
 
Marx began life as a self-professed Christian but shortly after receiving his graduation certificate he rejected the leading of the Holy Spirit, thus a new, darkly frightening Marx began to emerge.
 
In his poem, “Invocation of One in Despair, ” he declared his intention to avenge himself against the “One who rules above…”  Like his father the devil Marx brazenly states:
 
“I shall build my throne high overhead…” (ibid, p. 12)
 
Marx’s boast sounds much like Lucifer’s:

I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God.” (Isaiah 14:13)
 
Like Satan, Marx now dreamt of ruining the world created by the Triune God:
 
Then I will be able to walk triumphantly, Like a god, through the ruins of their kingdom.  Every word of mine is fire and action.  My breast is equal to that of the Creator.” (Quoted in Deutsche Tagespost, West Germany, Dec. 1982)
 
In the poem called “The Player,” Marx confesses that a dark spiritual transformation, or counter-conversion has occurred:

The hellish vapors rise and fill the brain, Till I go mad and my heart is utterly changed. See this sword?  The prince of darkness Sold it to me. For me he beats the time and gives the signs. Ever more boldly I play the dance of death.” (ibid, Wurmbrand, p. 15)

Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor

In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, "The Brothers Karamazov," (1879-1880) the Grand Inquisitor is an important part of the novel because the character represents one of the most important endowments of the fallen human psyche: moral freedom in the face of good and evil.   In particular, the Grand Inquisitor symbolizes the principle of pride, negation and rebellion in mortal men such Hegel, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, and the evolutionary pantheist Teilhard de Chardin, who though not the actual devil are of like mind with him. 

The Grand Inquisitor is a conscious swindler, a heartless Big Liar who knows that the Triune God of Revelation exists, yet perversely chooses to rebel against God as revealed through Jesus Christ despite that he knows his own life is by the grace of the Triune God of life.

Marx's rebellion was against the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  In the twisted manner of the Pharisees, Marx accuses the Triune God of being evil personified even as he perversely lauds Satan as the liberator of man.   Thus he declares war against the Triune God and the world created by Him and in his poem, "The Pale Maiden"  admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:

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

Marx's devilish comrade in arms, Mikhail Bakunin, celebrates the Evil One as 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)

The Satanic revolt, like orthodox Christian faith is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of lies, hate and envy; the author of heresy, rebellion, occult science (i.e., evolution) and secret gnosis. As Lucifer Satan is the seething energy of evolution, the angel of evolution and the 'god' sought within by Mystery initiates from the pre-flood world to our own.

 When in his rebellion against the Triune God Marx found himself compelled to negate the central conclusion of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo because of his desire to establish that instead of man created in the spiritual image of God,  man “owes his existence (only) to man” and by extension, that the entire history of the world is the creation of man, he virtually recapitulated Thomas Aquinas’ argument for the existence of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, pp. 113-114)
 
Marx first admits that man can only consider himself independent when he,
 
“…owes his existence to himself.  A man who lives by the grace of another regards himself as a dependent being.  But if I live completely by the grace of another...I owe him not only the maintenance of my life, but if he has, moreover, created my life (then) he is the source of my life.  When it is not of my own creation, my life has necessarily a source of this kind outside of it.  The creation is therefore an idea very difficult to dislodge from popular consciousness.” (ibid)
 
From this intellectual exercise Marx correctly concludes that the idea that nature and man are not created but rather conscious products of evolution over billions of years is incomprehensible because it “contradicts everything tangible in practical life.”
 
Marx knows that the Triune God of Revelation exists, so he chooses to will himself to ‘know God does not exist’ and boldly prohibits the asking of questions pertaining to Gods’ existence. To even ask if God exists and if He spoke creation into existence becomes wholly unreasonable, hence reasonable men do not ask such questions.  

Being of one mind with the devil, the Grand Inquisitor (Marx) suggests that in order to affirm that man is god, the denial of the existence of the God of Revelation has in the past been necessary, thus to further his swindle, he asserts antitheism rather than atheism, which is merely a negation of God that nevertheless postulates the existence of man through this negation.  

For the Inquisitor, the prudent course is to flatly deny the existence of the God of Revelation and creation ex nihilo and enforce this dictate by way of terroristic psychological bullying and if need be by murder.  Terrorize believers into groveling submission, and even better, accommodation, by way of destruction of their spiritual virtues via harsh scorn, cruel ridicule, slander and charges of insanity.  

The Inquisitor also knows that if men are deprived of the living God of Revelation they will worship something else.  Thus the Inquisitor proffers the natural religion of scientific socialism and dialectical materialism (evolutionary theory). 

But when later on Darwin published his own theory, the Inquisitor immediately perceived its' philosophical materialist implications.  The idea that humans evolved by chance and natural selection from primordial water or lifeless chemicals lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and provided the "scientific" framework to support the economic infrastructure on which Marx could build his godless communist utopia:

"...the biggest thing going for Darwinism was that it finally broke the tyranny in which Christianity had held the minds of men for so many centuries." (F. Hoyle and C. Wickramasinghe, "Evolution From Space," 1983, pp. xiii-xxii, 81 and 145)

 In this light we can see that Hebrews 6:4-6 refers not only to the Pharisees but to an individual such as Marx, who by the leading of the Holy Spirit had tasted the goodness of the word of God, but now willfully chooses to renounce his faith, close his heart to the Holy Spirit and with malice aforethought, willfully lead unwitting sheep to their destruction.

Such a heart is a darkened soul so thoroughly hardened and unrepentant–and in the case of Marx severely demonically infested–that it not only declares war against God but goes so far as to prohibit questions about His existence and His creation and perversely actively seeks the loss of salvation for others.  Having willfully rejected physical resurrection in eternal paradise, the world made completely anew, it wants no others to have it either.
 
It is too late for such a soul for God has declared He will not forgive blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31), thus such a soul will not be brought back to repentance.  By its’ own decision it decided in favor of hell– outer darkness—for all eternity:

It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31).

 However, with the exception of the unforgivable sin,

"....there is nothing in the category of human offenses that is beyond the reach of divine forgiveness. 'Although your sins be like scarlet, they shall be white as snow,' is the ancient promise given by God to men; 'though they be like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18)  This is not to be interpreted...as an encouragement to sin, but rather as an inducement to repentance. If the sinner truly repents, imploring God’s forgiveness for Jesus’ sake; if he accepts him as Saviour and endeavors, with divine help, to live thereafter a Christian life, he will not only be forgiven, but will be kept from falling back into sin. This is the teaching of the Gospel, and it is exemplified in innumerable cases today. We have many instances everywhere of great sinners who have forsaken their evil ways and who are now living the new life, sustained by divine power....There is no punishment for sins that are forgiven. ‘Jesus paid it all.’” (Bible Answers for 1000 Difficult Questions, christiananswers.net)

As each person has but one life in which to get things right with the Holy Triune God, it is critically important that he or she confess and repent of their sins and seek,

“...the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” (Isaiah 55:6)

The Wicked Nanny: Symptom of America's Dying Soul

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dr. Gonzalez concurs,

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Scourge of Covetousness and Envy

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

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

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

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

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

Property is,

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

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

America's Dying Soul

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Way Forward

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

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

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

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

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

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 Spirit of Our Age & Antichrist

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.  Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.  In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome .....The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.  He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.  He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.  Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God... The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us....John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, 'This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me...." John 1: 1-17

From the beginning of His earthly ministry, there were those who received Him but many more who would not, and so it will be until the end.   The former are those who recognize and admit their sinful condition while the latter, being full of stubborn pride, will not.

Not even the mighty miracle of creation ex nihilo as described in John’s Gospel and Christ’s own bodily resurrection (Luke 16:31) can persuade those who choose not to believe.

This willful unbelief in Christ had been prophesied long before.  In support of this John cites  Isaiah 53:1-3

Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.”

In order to be received, one must be acceptable.  Christ is rejected by proud, rebellious men along with His offer of salvation because He is not acceptable.  Thus the world’s final word to Him is the cross.

At the root of the rejection of Jesus Christ God incarnate is the rebellious assertion that man has not been created by Him, that he is not dependent upon Him for his own life, thus he is not created in His spiritual image.  He is rather, a conscious product of evolution, thus not dependent upon the living God for he is a man-god who can choose to murder God or to create sock-puppet deities to do his bidding, for he is the master of science, matter, energy, time, being, and the world who through his own knowledge and powers will save himself.

Blaming the living God in three Persons for their suffering, much of it self-inflicted, rebels say to Him, "you are not my father:"

"I am I, I come out of myself, and in choice and action I make myself." (Daniel Bell, quoted by Herbert Schlossberg in "Idols for Destruction," p. 43)

The Spirit of our age is rebellious, defiant man who has lost his faith and joined the burgeoning ranks of natural men who hold that nothing exists but the natural dimension here below.  This spirit of defiance finds completion in the arrival of the Man of Sin, the Satan possessed Antichrist who as the spirit Lucifer is the god of Masonry:

"We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition.  To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th degrees---The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.....Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay (the Triune God), the God of Darkness and Evil." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies, William T. Still, p. 124)

The man who receives into himself the whole operation of Satan organizes the political, economic, scientific (mandated universal evolution), and religious cult of Satan, which will be military in character.  The nature of the militaristic cult will be absolute as its' purpose is total seizure of both the world's resources and the whole man---his will, mind, conscience and soul---by taking possession of his body through a Luciferian Initiation.

Discussed with great excitement among the world's powerful occult pantheist New Age Luciferian initiates and gurus, most of them under the influence of spirit guides, this much anticipated event will directly link the initiated masses with the Antichrist, the being described as "the angel of man's evolution" by New Age leader David Spangler.   (Reflections on the Christ,  p.37)

The world will adore and worship the Antichrist, for it is already of one mind with this man, a morally and intellectually perfected natural man, a god-man who will not confess that Christ is the Son of God.

The Man of Sin is acceptable to the world since he is a natural man who is a great biblical exegete, a charismatic politician and a great man of science and evolution who authoritatively affirms beyond doubt that the Genesis account of creation is indeed a book of myths.

Since he plans to tear the heart out of the church (Jesus Christ crucified and risen) and use the Christless church for his worldly enterprise, he also authoritatively affirms every non-Christian claim made by heretics and the apostatizing (i.e., billions of years of evolution,  god is within, prosperity gospel, social gospel, seeker-sensitive).

At these glad tidings, the majority of wavering bishops, cardinals, pastors, reverends, monks and intellectuals are instantly seduced into apostasy.  Like hapless moths to a flame they fly to  him for at long last they have found the man they can adore, a man who loves nobody but himself and whose relationship with Christ is defined,

".... as one of superiority (for he will never) bow before Him like the most stupid of Christians (nor) mutter senselessly....'Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me'....'I, the bright genius, the superman! No, never!... Devoured with envy of Jesus Christ he cries out "He rotted in the tomb, rotted like the lowest..."(Vladimir Soloviev cited in The Wrath of God: The Days of Antichrist, Livio Fanzaga, pp. 39-41)

 Soloviev, a brilliant Russian philosopher and theologian (1853-1900), masterfully portrays a striking contrast between the apostles of Christ and apostles of the Antichrist. The former receive the power of the living God and are full of wisdom, truth, humility, and courage of conviction while the latter receive the power of the devil and are full of  pride, covetousness, burning envy, persistent lies, arrogance, defiance, murderous hate, blasphemy, cursing, resentment, deception and perversion.

Additionally, Solovievs' predictions regarding events in our age (i.e., idolatry, confusion, revolutions, lawlessness, hatred between brethren, division among Christians, apostasy) are astonishing in their prescience, primarily because they not only offer an amazingly accurate glimpse into the mind of the idolatrous man-god who will become the Antichrist but because they also illustrate the real obstacle to salvation, the refusal by proud men to recognize, admit and repent of their sins.

Evolution, the 'One Ring to rule them all/One Ring to find them/One Ring to bring them all/and in the darkness bind them."  (The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien,1892-1973)

While Soloviev recorded his stunning vision in “A Short Tale of the Antichrist,” Robert Hugh Benson (1871-1914), an English Catholic priest, recorded his prescient vision in "Lord of the World."

Like the Ruling Ring endued with the serpent power of Sauron, the evolutionary thinking that mesmerizes and transfixes Western and American minds, becoming their own 'precious,' prepares people to not only embrace the occult pantheist religion sweeping over the dechristianized West and America but to worship, adore and become bound to Antichrist, for this fascinating human-god (Mr. Felsenburgh) is the first perfected product of nature and evolutionary forces. Mr. Felsenburgh has arisen and he is,

"....the first perfect product of that new cosmopolitan creation to which the world has labored throughout its history..." (p 85)

He fascinates men and they excitedly declare they have seen,

"...the Son of Man,' the 'Savior of the world,' we knew Him in our hearts as soon as we saw Him, as soon as He stood there. It was like a glory around his head (and now we) understand it all... It was He for whom we have waited so long; and He has come, bringing Peace and Goodwill in His hands." (pp. 85, 89)

Christianity failed, it divided people. But now Jehovah is gone. He never existed at all except as a hideous nightmare. Now at long last man can forget Jesus for man’s natural Savior has arisen.  He will liberate them from Hell, merge all religions that all roads lead to the same place and by his Great Work, his Opus Magnum, magically merge all opposites so there will be neither truth or untruth, male or female, good or evil, sodomy or natural relations, for Antichrist has established peace by dealing with all conditions that lead to strife, lust, envy and covetousness.  This he has done by fulfilling the communist ideal in the grounding of all mankind in absolute sameness.  This absolute is an,

"....equality of universal satiety (of sin)" (ibid, p. 140)

At this, all of the world's unrepentant sinners pray to the Antichrist, the beast, and say,

"Who is there like unto the beast."  Rev. 13:7-8

At long last,

"The reign of God has really begun (and) we are all partakers of God" because God is in everything, including all men...."Jehovah has fallen. He is in His grave." In His place is the evolved Son of Man, a god indeed and a man as well..."a god because human and a man because so divine." (ibid, pp. 93, 95)

Soloviev's and Benson’s predictions regarding events in our age are astonishing in their prescience, primarily because they not only offer an amazingly accurate glimpse into the mind of the proud man who will become the Antichrist but they also illustrate the real obstacle to salvation, the refusal by proud, willful men to recognize and admit their sinful condition; as described by both men, the Antichrist and his disciples suffer the same massively inflated pride and envy that transformed Lucifer into the devil.

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.

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)

The Fall of Western and American Society

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

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

In "Against the Heathen," early Church Father Athanasius briefly outlines the predictable pattern of man’s fall from the time of Adam to our own.  Because man is naturally self-centered and pleasure-seeking, his fall begins with pride and haughtiness resulting in idolatry (preference for self rather than God and brethren), rebellion against authority and the casting off of moral restraints and sexual ethics eventuating in barbarism and nature and/or state worship.

It was a haughty, rebellious, willful spirit that led the people of Noah’s day to make light of the unchanging higher things of God, to criticize, ridicule and scoff God and everything true, good, natural and real away. Deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began seeking in preference things in the worldly or natural dimension. Thus they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher things.

 The pattern outlined by Athanasius is similar to the one delineated by Benjamin Wiker in his book,“Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Worship.”  Wiker writes that as far back as the Renaissance the strong impulse to throw off the restraints of God and Christianity was already at work in certain Churchmen and intellectuals, hence their eventual embrace of materialism (naturalism):

The desire to be liberated from the constraints of Christianity was the original reason for modern liberalism’s embrace of a world defined entirely by materialism—the view that there are no immaterial entities like God of the soul, but only physical entities. This embrace of materialism began as far back as the Renaissance. And the same impulse was behind the nineteenth-century enthusiasm for scientific materialism, and it remains a staple of liberalism today."  ("Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Religion," Benjamin Wiker)

 Wiker painstakingly traces the development of what he defines as contemporary secular liberalism (also science-magic and evolution or neo-pantheist Modernism and its primary doctrine evolution) to its roots, thereby revealing that the liberals in ascendancy in America today are,

"....the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from the beginning has been characterized by a desire to be free from the burden of Christianity...As a rebellion against Christianity, its negative goal defined its positive form: the desire to remove the church and replace it with the state gave liberalism its structure, beliefs, and goals." (ibid)

So from the start, the desire to be liberated from God and Christianity has been a war against God as Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto makes clear in his poem, "The Pale Maiden" when he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:

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

Our rebellion is a satanic revolt against God, said Marx’s anarchist comrade Bakunin:

"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 authentic Christian faith, is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of lies, heresy and envy, the author of blasphemy and rebellion, and the revelator of secrets.

Satanic revolt is war against the Holy Trinity which in Bakunin's words is the "cursed and fatal principle of authority." Thus it proclaims the reign of nothingness (nihilist materialism) though nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of evil 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)

The nature of the Satanic revolt is the antithesis of the authentic Christian faith. Whereas Christian faith is joy, patience, love, truth, humbleness, perseverance, submission in all things to the Will of God and blessed eternal life, the Satanic counterfeit is full of skepticism, scoffing, cruel criticism and ridicule, lies, sophistry, revulsion, burning envy, impatience, seething hatred, jealousy, rebelliousness, blasphemy, and eternal life in Hell.

 Just as it was a haughty, rebellious, willful spirit that led the antediluvians of Noah’s day to make light of the unchanging higher things of God, to criticize, ridicule and scoff God and everything true, good, natural and real away, so it is the case with modern rebels against God.  Where antediluvians deliberately disregarded what they knew to be true and began seeking in preference things in the worldly or natural dimension, so too have moderns. Thus they, antediluvians and moderns, fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher things.

Writing at the time of the collapse of the Roman Empire, St. Augustine writes in the “City of God” that the good man (i.e., authentic Christians and good, decent Westerners and Americans), even if he has become a slave to wicked men is actually the free man, but the wicked man, though a king, is the slave. For he serves not one man alone, but what is worse, as many masters as he has vices. 

The Spirit of the Lord has departed from rebels and turned them over to other spirits as He did with the wicked people of Noah’s day.  Thus wicked men are not only the slaves of their unfettered libidos and madness but the demons who influence their moral imbecility and inflame their passions, as was the case with King Saul.  

As a society is comprised of men and women, it is when a majority have fallen into idolatry, libido dominandi, madness and demonic subjection that a tyranny of evil prevails. Common features of evil  societies include but are not limited to the following:  

1. Warped, distorted, freakish characters; narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark natures, scoffing, mocking, cruel criticism, contempt and ridicule

2. Extreme, uncontrollable passions resulting in abnormal, compulsive sexuality, sodomy, bestiality, pederasty, androgyny (transgender); meanness, spite, hate, violence, wrath, explosive rage, belligerence, theft, rape, murder, killing of babies, beatings, terrorism

3. Compulsive dark thoughts of suicide and murder; hideous nightmares, the sensation of standing atop an abyss, anxiety states, persecution complexes

4. Sexualization of culture: sexualized women, teens, boys, girls, babies and animals; love of nudity and titillation, addiction to pornography and drugs

5. Automatic rebellion against any vestige of authority

6. Moral relativism: the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil, natural and unnatural, truth and lie.  All ‘truth’ and ‘values’ are subject to each whining, demanding narcissist’s personal likes (whatever is coveted) and dislikes (whoever is hated and envied) since each narcissist is independent “and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will…”

5. Naturalism: all that exists is nature or cosmos (matter), hence there can be no relevance in anything beyond our senses; there is nothing above us and no hell below

6. Madness or moral imbecility: all sense suddenly seems like nonsense, nothing is ever right, natural, good and true

7. Demonic subjection: confusion, psychosis, psychopathy, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts against Jesus Christ and Christian symbols, Holy Days, and prayer

Even though rebels against God deny their own personal responsibility for the wicked choices they make, 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)

Believing themselves free and intellectually enlightened, rebels against God are in reality the spiritually blind slaves of their unfettered libidos and the demons who influence their moral imbecility and inflame their passions, causing them to publicly shame themselves with their outrageous words and actions, scar and mutilate their bodies, prostitute themselves to dictators, publicly confess their own hypocrisy and stupidity, torment them with frightening nightmares and fantasies, and compel them to dwell on thoughts of suicide and murder.

If you will not submit your will to our Lord who does not want any of His sheep to be lost, then you must say hello to the demons. You will submit to them.

Faithful Irish Priests Refuse Holy Communion to Outraged Sinners

The Irish Independent is reporting that some faithful, courageous Irish priests, particularly in rural parishes, are informing Catholic politicians who supported Enda Kenny’s abortion legislation that they must not present themselves for Holy Communion otherwise they will be refused:

SEVERAL government TDs have told how they were "discouraged" by members of the clergy from taking Holy Communion over their support for the controversial abortion legislation….A number of TDs…said priests had warned them off from seeking Communion if they voted in favour of the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill….One deputy told the Sunday Independent: "I was approached by one priest recently and was told very clearly not to go to him looking for Communion that Sunday, as I would be refused….a large number of government TDs have claimed that they have been pilloried from the pulpit over their support for the legislation…..One priest was threatening all sorts from the pulpit one weekend," one minister said. "Excommunication, direct threats came about us receiving Communion. It was outrageous." (TDs told not to look for Communion, Independent.ie, September 10, 2013)

The real issue here resides in whether God Spoke or not.   If He spoke “mouth to mouth” to Moses (Num. 12:6-9; John 9:20) and at sundry times and in many ways “spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, last of all….” (Hebrews 1:1) then it is incumbent upon man to submit his will to the Divine Will and Authority of God.  This is the position of the faithful, defined by recognition that Jesus Christ the Savior who is also sometimes called ‘salvation’ because He is the author of salvation is the Living Word; the Holy Creator of the universe and man, the Angel Who spoke mouth to mouth to Moses as well as the prophets.  

This is the stance taken by the faithful Church Fathers who said in effect, ‘This is what He said, hence this is how He created all things before time began and the order in which He created all things.  Thus it is not for us to twist the meaning of His Revelation, to distort it in any way, to add, take away from, and/or add the traditions of men.”

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. Whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their perdition slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:3

Though God maintains all life and nonliving things, planets, stars, etc. within the world (nature, cosmos), He is not within the world but outside of the space-time dimension.  It is fallen man who carries the burden of time, not God.  This is a crucial point, for in adding a billion zeros (time) to God and His creation account as covetous modernist false-priests and sinful humanist intellectuals (the worshippers of evolution and modern scientism) have done, they have in effect transferred their own limitations onto God.  They have ‘limited’ Him, and this is definitely satanic.

The issue then, boils down to authority.  Whose authority do we submit our wills to?  To God’s Authority as do the faithful, and this includes the faithful Irish priests, or to the will of weak, mistake-prone, rebellious, covetous, self-centered false priests and sinful men, who by limiting Him have in fact made Him over in their own image.  This is idolatry. 

In 1977 British journalist William Rees-Mogg saw that Christendom and Protestant America had lost their faith, and like a drowning man were desperately thrashing around for lack of oxygen: 

“Since the time of Christ there has been no period in which there has been the same feeling of….spiritual impoverishment.” (Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture, Herbert Schlossberg, p. 2)

Thirty-six years later, but for a faithful remnant, Christendom and Protestant America are all but dead.  While there are as yet many faithful churches, priests, evangelists, missionaries, and Christian laypeople proclaiming Christ crucified for the sins of all men and fulfilling their vocations with humility and integrity, idolatrous modernist priests and sinful humanist intellectuals maintain that Genesis contains neither historical nor literal meaning therefore God did not speak.  Thus in their corrupted hearts and stunted, befouled conscience, they believe they are free to practice a spirituality that is Christian in name only, is self-affirming, fun-loving, irrational, and permissive to the extent that it ordains practicing ‘gays’ and goddesses, unites homosexuals and lesbians in wedlock, affirms abortion and partakes of communion even though the ‘Jesus’ they worship is an idol of their own creation.      

The beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and brethren), and where self-righteous ‘self’ is primary then ‘self’ deserves and has a right to everything it can get---including Holy Communion.   If divine ‘self’ is thwarted its’ outrage is immediate, resulting in name-calling, complaints, threats, and even revenge.    As a measure of man's evil, the expectation of a right to eat and drink of the body and blood of Christ must surely have a spot on God's measuring rod. 

What the faithful remnant are mindful of is that whoever submits his will to the Divine Will and Authority of God and keeps His commandments loves God (John 14:21) while the reverse is true of all envious, covetous idolaters:  

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

The end of the commandment is charity (agape love) from a pure heart, a good conscience and unfeigned faith. (1 Thes. 1:5)   He that really loves his neighbor fulfills the law for he does not prefer self over God and neighbor, commit adultery and murder, nor does he lie, steal, bear false witness (i.e., slander, gossip), covet, envy, and hate as do idolaters.  

Charity works no evil.  It is not perversely puffed up with pride as self-righteous idolaters are.  It is not ambitious; it does not force its’ blasphemous demands on faithful Irish priests.  Charity thinks no evil and neither rejoices in another man’s misery nor derides truth and virtue as idolaters do.  

The tragedy of the fall is that man has lost his introspection.  Cain and Judas had no hope of looking within themselves and seeing the seed of their own evil, which when it bloomed inevitably destroyed them. The Cross is thus a messenger of mankind’s fallen condition.   Therefore we are obliged to humbly search ourselves for every manifestation of idolatrous self-centeredness and repent of it and receive forgiveness because God really did speak and He is coming soon, said the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End (Rev. 22: 12-16) Who testifies to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book that if any man twists and distorts these things as modern false-priests and humanist intellectuals have done to the entirety of Scripture by denying the historical and literal meaning of Genesis, thus denying that God Spoke to Moses and the prophets,     

“….God shall add unto him the plagues written in this book.” (Rev. 22:18)

While plagues can be temporal, these particular plagues are torments inflicted by demons on the mind, night and day.

Russia: America is a Boiling Pot of Hate and its' Males are Turning Gay

In "Russia Says It Will Arrest Openly Gay Tourists," Amanda Lee reports that Russian president Vladimir Putin has signed what Lee feels is a controversial law that punishes people for “homosexual propaganda.” The law fines people—including tourists—up to 200,000 rubles ($6,240 CDN) for “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations.”  (www.travelandlandscape.ca/  July 10, 2013)

Lee, an obvious 'gay' sympathizer lacking both moral compass and ability to envision the consequences of dangerously faulty ideas and actions, adds that according to Voice of Russia,

"...any display of affection between same-sex couples could cause a “distorted understanding” that gay relations and heterosexual relations are socially equivalent, and risk spreading Western liberalism." (ibid)

Putin claims the law doesn’t discriminate against LGBT people, but rather is there to "protect children from pedophilia"  which according to Lee is "an argument riddled with faulty logic..."

Lee is a moral imbecile while Putin's "politically incorrect intolerance" is morally sane, courageous and entirely understandable on the grounds that Russia was forced---by envy-bitten Marxist Communists--- down the gender-bending highway to hell in pursuit of the classless society---the fantasy of idolatrous envy-bitten people---long before the West and America set foot on the very same highway.  Given the catastrophic suffering Russia endured, Russians want nothing more to do with the madness and murder inherent to socialism's gospel of envy:

"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 first demands for state-funded easy abortion (pro-choice stance), alternative family groupings, state control of property and resources including children,  'gay' equality, same-sex marriage, sex reassignment surgery, the right to ‘cross-dress’ and teach children the forbidden 'delights' of polymorphous perversity were not made in post-Stonewall America but in the totalitarian gnostic atheist regime--the Marxist Soviet Union--- as disclosed in the article, "1920s Soviet  Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals."  It was also reported  that lesbians--masculinized, cross-dressing females---were rewarded with influential  positions of authority and influence within academia, the Red Army, and throughout the cultural arena:

“....women of the masculinized type (cross-dressing army  commanders, for instance) were considered with fascination and indulgence.” (www.workers.org)

Long before Amanda Lee ignorantly bashed Putin for trying to protect Russia from the devastating effects of legally mandated polymorphous perversion, the previously quoted workers article was bashing “backward” Christian-Judeo America for trying to protect children, families and culture from the same things:

That same year (1923) in the U.S., where  anti-sodomy laws aimed to padlock closet doors, the FBI labeled anarchist Emma  Goldman “the most dangerous woman in America” because of her vocal support for  gay rights and other forms of social equality.”  (ibid)

Soviet sexologists in the 1920s participated  in the international movement to 'normalize' and legalize all forms of sexual gratification, which included the use of children by pedophiles.  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)

The "gay" rainbow flag was hoisted over Russia long before it was raised in triumph over America: 

“The Bolshevik Party did not merely scrap  anti-homosexual Tsarist laws. They felt it was necessary to tear down the walls  that divided homosexuality…from the rest of society. Soviet Russia was by far  the most significant power since the French Revolution to decriminalize male  same-sex.” (People of the Moonlight in the Dawn of Revolution, www.workers.org)

 In the preceding statements, we can clearly see the  grounds for today’s envy-fueled notions of tolerance, inclusion, privacy, consent, tax-payer funded abortion on demand, alternative lifestyles and the forced-feeding of ‘gay’ perversion to American school children.

"The infernal hurricane that never rests / Hurtles the spirits onward in its rapine"  (Dante, Inferno V, lines 31-32)

Of all of the hellish forces fueling the Soviet Union's infernal hurricane, none were as frightening as envy/covetousness.   Envy is so powerful and fearsome that the sociologist Helmut Schoeck theorizes that the need to protect ourselves from one another's envy is what drives human beings to form societies and cultures safeguarded by morality.   In fact, the oldest body of written literature, that of the Sumerians, evidences the desperate need for protection against envy/covetousness:

"Thousands upon thousands of clay business contracts.  All to protect ancient Sumerians from the envious behavior of fellow citizens." (Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. Aquaro, p. 2)

Long before the "secularized" politically-correct morals-and-sin-free West and America began disintegrating under the devastating effects of unfettered envy/covetousness, Russia's envy-torn classless society experiment collapsed into a hellish nightmare. It was a scene out of bedlam: gangs of conscienceless “children of the State” visiting havoc and crime upon neighborhoods, schools, cities and towns (just as they do here);  mainstream slavery, sex  slavery, prostitution, gross debauchery, confiscation of property, and outright chaos. After years of  revolution and famine the economy was severely damaged, and with the death of morality and the family—the building blocks of society—both economy and culture collapsed.

 Only then did some fantasy-believing fools finally "wake up" to the realization that without the safeguards of morality and procreative family there is no  future.

In a desperate bid to revive both morality and the family, Stalin began reining in polymorphous perversion. By 1923, homosexuals lost the ‘right’ to harass straight men for  'sex.'   Then in 1927, the ‘right’ to engage in sodomy was  lost (criminalized) as was the right to keep “bachi”—cross-dressed, feminized boy dancers kept as prostitutes. The death knell rang in 1934 when polymorphous perversion and prostitution were declared crimes punishable by up to 8 years  in prison. (Women in the Soviet Union, Jen Pickard, Youth for International  Socialism)

Despite these efforts, the Soviet Union’s birth-to-death rate continued to fall.

During the 1980’s,  Gorbachev attempted yet more reforms. In an effort to undo self-destructive gender-bending and restore natural male-female relations in hope of reviving the natural family a course entitled, "The Ethics and Psychology of Family Life"  was introduced into schools and shown on television. Its objective was to  reinforce traditional male-female roles. Teachers were urged to,

“....train and train again,  girls to be girls and boys to be boys.” (ibid)

Meanwhile, throughout the morals-free West and America, state-sponsored gender-bending continues full-throttle:

1. "Obama orders US State Department to Fund Homosexual Groups Overseas"   http://www.examiner.com/article/obama-orders-us-state-department-to-fund-homosexual-groups-overseas

2. "Boston  Gay Pride - Part 2: Attacking traditional religion and the Catholic  Church"     http://www.massresistance.org/docs/gen2/13b/pride_week/parade-festival/religion/index.html

3. Youth Gay Pride events (2003-2011)   http://www.massresistance.org/topics/reports/Youth_pride.html

Just as the case had been in the Soviet Union, God, Scripture, Christian theism, moral absolutes, the two sexes (male and female), traditional marriage, procreation, and property and self-defense rights are under full attack by international and national secular "elitists" and legions of what Lenin contemptuously referred to as "useful idiot" activists:

"Every totalitarian regime seems to find a segment of the population that has a special calling for such behavior, and it actively seeks them out and promotes them within its ranks." (Black Book of Communism, Courtois, Werth, Panne, Paczkowski, Bartosek, Margolin, p.754)

Shortly after President Reagan made his now famous “evil empire” speech March 8,  1983, the Soviet Union—a walking corpse—imploded.

Despite all reform efforts, Russia’s birth-to-death replacement rate in 2006  continued to fall. Confronted by the chilling prospect of a ‘dead’ Russia,  Vladimir Putin adopted a pro-birth policy that pays traditional families to have at least a second child—if not more. Additionally,  stay-at-home mothers receive 40% of their former salary and families with  two children receive a lump sum of $9000.  According to recent reports, Russia's birth-to-death replacement rate has finally tipped in favor of life. 

Even as a dying Russia turned back to God and strove mightily to live through restoration and  protection of the institutions of morality, traditional marriage and family so that it might survive, the West and America---compelled by the unfettered libido of the envious--- are steadfastly killing these vital life-giving institutions while simultaneously waging a war of attrition against the foundations of Western civilization: God, Scripture, Moral Law, procreation.   In the name of  evolutionary scientism, multiculturalism, reason, fairness, progress, tolerance, inclusion, diversity, choice and orientation, the West and America are casting themselves into the grave previously occupied by Russia which now laughs at the United States, seeing it as a Sodom and Gomorrah, a huge boiling pot of hate and anti-Christian animosity, a weak state populated by lisping, perfumed, hairless chested effeminate males and masculinized females:

The US is broke and Russia is the world’s  largest oil producer with a growing economy. Russia is not backing down and  they have China to back them up. Who will back the US? Tiny Britain? Americans  are turning gay and Russian men are looking more like the Klitschko brothers.  The US is the modern day Sodom and Gomorrah while Christianity  triumphs in Russia. No ACLU in  Russia suing Christians to be sure. The largest country in the world shows only  contempt at the US Bomb & Missile  Diplomacy.”  (Russian Paper Says “Weak Eyed Obama” Is Leader Of Sodom &  Gomorrah Following G8 Summit, by Leon Puissegur, June 21, 2013, http://freedomoutpost.com/ )

On every front, our sanity, children, churches, homes, neighborhoods and liberty are under assault from an evil-minded, envy-bitten international banker-corporatist coterie strengthened and supported by an interlocking network of powerful secular 'elitist' factions bent on overthrowing constitutional self-government of, by, and for the people. 

We face an unprecedented threat to America’s way of life, said Alan Keyes, and  we must not take the view that we should surrender our common identity as a people and accept the dissolution of the constitutional Union based upon it, in order to preserve some vestiges of rights and liberty:

"Have we become so much less the supposedly less educated and well-endowed generations that went before us? If so, it can only be because, despite all our vaunted science and material success, we have turned from the moral and spiritual path that gave them a surplus of faith and courage to match their deficiency of wealth and arms. But if this is our failing, then it is also our hope. For all that is required to restore us to their path of greatness is to trust again, as they did, in the God who made us." (Liberty and Union: Can both be saved? Alan Keyes, July 11, 2013, http://loyaltoliberty.com/?p=2485 )

A Godless Russia passed through a fiery crucible and emerged stronger, it's faith in God and restored moral sense enabling  President Putin to speak with ringing moral clarity and unflinching courage in the face of almost overwhelming international gender-bending demands.   Even now, America and the West are on the outer edge of the crucible.  Knowing this, Keyes suggests that we turn back to God and humble ourselves before Him,

"Instead of breaking our country, what if, heartbroken, we bring our prayers to Him. If we will truly turn to Him, by the very Word that made us, He allows to have confidence that He will hear our prayers and heal our land. Moved by that hope, we will surely find the courage to build a political movement faithful to God and true liberty."

Judgment: the Biblical Explanation for Madness, Moral Relativism and Disintegration of Society

The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche predicted that the death of the Christian God would unleash madness that over time would eventually infiltrate every facet of Western and American life.  That time is now.  In 2013, AP award winning columnist Richard Larsen described American culture as warped and twisted with few core values and a perverted sense of propriety. (Our Culture Of Deranged Values, Larsen, Western Journalism, July 2, 2013 )

From an almost boundless menu of madness, Larsen selects a few:  

1. you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally.

2. school children have to get parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion or take a morning after pill.

3. we have politicians who want to ban law-abiding citizens from owning guns but give fighter jets to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and want to give weapons to the resistance in Syria that beheads opponents and eats their hearts.

4.  a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is cute, but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.

5. you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself luxuries, while your neighbor buys iPhones, TV’s, and new cars; and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage.

6. school children are allowed to spew the most vulgar words and expressions, but face suspension if they talk openly about God or Jesus Christ.

Such madness evidencing the devolution of our culture could go on inexorably, said Larsen, but clearly, we are a ludicrous, nihilistic, upside-down society of skewed priorities and values, shaped by convoluted notions of what acceptable or politically correct behavior should be:

" Common sense, once common, is no more. It truly makes one wonder if there’s any hope for us. The prophet Isaiah said, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” It’s a morally dark day in America, and it’s getting darker." (ibid)

Once the citadels of Christianity, contemporary Western and American societies are now post-Christian nihilistic neo-pagan and mystical pantheist societies that openly promote vice (sin).  For more than seventy years this disastrous state of affairs has convinced many perceptive thinkers to believe that Western civilization has shifted to decline, disintegration and atrophy.  For example, more than sixty years ago, German sociologist Karl Mannheim saw that Western civilization was in sharp decline and is even  now "collapsing before our eyes." (Man and Society: In an Age of Reconstruction, Mannheim, p. 15)

 Western and American society is now variously described in such terms as post-capitalist (Ralf Dahrendorf), post-bourgeois (George Lichtheim),post-modern (Amitai Etzioni),  post-literary (Marshall McLuhan), post-civilized (Kenneth Boulding), post-traditional (S.N. Eisenstadt), post-historic (Roderick Seidenberg), post-industrial (Daniel Bell), post-Puritan, post-Protestant and post-Christian (Sidney Ahlstrom).  (Faith and History: A Comparison of Christian and Modern Views of History, pp. 162f, from "Idols for Destruction, Herbert Schlossberg, p. 2)

This outpouring of pessimism and despair is what we ought to expect from mainly secular intellectuals. Their religiously pagan worldview within its' closed system (man-centered universe) positing the evolutionary ascent of man from primordial matter to a more perfect state leaves them confounded as well as spiritually and morally impoverished.   But supernatural Christian theism along with its Hebraic antecedents and in particular its' doctrines of creation ex nihilo and  eschatology are explicit statements that history has both a definite beginning and end.  Events between these two boundary stones have meaning relevant to the moral decay and collapse of Western and American civilization.

In order that we may understand the spirit of madness sweeping through our decaying post-Christian society Herbert Schlossberg proposes that we use idolatry as a framework for comprehension.   The biblical explanation of madness or moral imbecility and depravity in connection with the end of society resides in the concept of judgment upon an idolatrous people who, being so evil and perilous to their own existence and that of others, have liberated themselves from  God's perfect law.  

According to R. Mark Musser, author of "Nazi Oaks: The Green Sacrifice of the Judeo-Christian Worldview in the Holocaust," the worship of the Holy God as the Creator and human ethics go hand in hand in the Mosaic Law.   The first four commandments demand love for the Holy God.  Commandment five demands love for parents, and commandments six through ten demand love for other people.  Man was thus commanded to worship and love God as His Maker,
 
"and the best way to fulfill this was to treat one's neighbor with love and respect precisely because he too was made in God's image."(p. 47)
 
As such, the entire Mosaic code was written with the reality of Genesis 1 (creation ex nihilo) in mind, "and once this truth was forgotten or compromised by idolatrous nature worship,"  love and respect for both God and man inevitably diminishes as the fundamental distinction between man and nature becomes increasingly blurred. 

Scripture depicts a societies' people as either having submitted themselves to their Maker, the Triune God and His moral law, or else as idolaters who have rebelled against him. This is how the Old Testament portrays Israel.  Israel had become an evil nation of idolaters fully deserving the judgment God brought against it.  Its' rebellion against God was accompanied by a turning to idols, and this idolatry brought the nation to its' end:

"With their silver and gold they made idols for their own destruction." (Hos. 8:4)

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of  idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor). The will of the proud man is not in submission to God but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride leads to contempt for and outright hatred of God the Father Almighty  and neighbor, unchanging truth, moral law, goodness, wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, and institutions in favor of any or all of the following: lying, murderous thoughts, treachery, gluttony, greed, covetousness, 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, mass-murder (genocide) and man-made famines:

"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, F. M. Pigido -an economist who lived and worked in Ukraine during the Famine of 1932-1933, 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." (ibid, Malcolm Muggeridge, British foreign correspondent, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)

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

According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist 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)

 Marxist Communists systematically stole the personal property of Russians, confiscated and sexually perverted their children, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

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

How many died in all? Estimates vary from a low of 160,000,000 to a high of 300,000,000 men, women and children worked to death, burned in ovens, gassed, starved, shot, knifed, electrocuted, tortured to death, hung, crucified, and cruelly murdered in many other ways. 

For more than two centuries Western and American ‘death of God’ elites have disregarded God even though the evil effects were mostly confined to their own circles.  But then they deliberately desecrated Western and American Christian tradition and lived in ways that would have spelled disaster if emulated by rank and file citizens said Os Guinness:

“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.” (Renaissance: The Power of the Gospel However Dark the Times, Os Guinness, p. 20)

The moment has indeed arrived for pedophile sex rings and sex slavery in our idolatrous, dehumanized post-Christian culture:

"In 2005, the world was introduced to reclusive billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, friend to princes and an American president, a power broker with the darkest of secrets: He was also a pedophile, accused of recruiting dozens of underage girls into a sex-slave network, buying their silence and moving along, although he has been convicted of only one count of soliciting prostitution from a minor. Visitors to his private Caribbean island, known as “Orgy Island,” have included Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Stephen Hawking.”  (The ‘Sex Slave’ Scandal That Exposed Pedophile Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, Maureen Callahan, New York Post, Oct. 9,

In turning away from the Holy God Creator of heaven and earth and two thousand years of Christian witness, Western society is systematically replacing the living Holy God with "idolatrous self," the Word (John 1) with evolutionary energy, scientism as the only legitimate form of knowledge, man as Gods spiritual image-bearer with evolved man as god, and sin and free will with natural causation, a process commonly referred to as secularization.  

Whatever man places at the top of his idolatrous pyramid of self-gratifying, self-glorifying values is ultimately what he serves, for example, science as the instrument of man's will, evolution as 'christ consciousness,' power for the sake of power, pleasure at any price, sodomy, lust, greed---and this profoundly affects the way he lives and interacts with the people around him or her.  

When a society turns away from the Holy Triune God to deified self, it is an idolatrous society heading for destruction because at the root of the rejection of the living God is the rebellious assertion that man has not been created by Him, that he is not dependent upon Him for his own life, thus he is not created in His spiritual image. He is not dependent upon the living God but is rather a man-god, the creator of God, and the master of time, being, and the world who through his own powers will save himself.

But as the days of (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Matthew 24:37

Scripture tells us that prior to the return of Jesus Christ at the end of history, the nations of the earth will have become evil societies of idolatrous tyrants who have forgotten their own souls, believe that all that exists is the evolving universe of matter and energy, prefer evil over good, lie over truth, crooked over straight, and unholy over holy.  Earth will have deteriorated to the condition that it had been during Noah's day.    

Lest we mistakenly perceive idolaters as nice, misunderstood people, in "Journey to the Celestial City," Wayne Martindale sets straight this error with his unvarnished depiction of hell-bound idolaters as haters of good people. All that's left in them is self-centeredness, sadistic pleasure received from hurting other people, hate, envy, lies, and thoughts of theft and murder, thus they prefer evil thoughts, evil words, evil companions and evil acts. Thus when they encounter good people they,

"...condemn them, perverting their reason by rationalizing evil and finding ways to blame the good or God or religion for their problems and the problems of the world. They already hate goodness because it implicitly condemns the evil they have chosen. They wouldn't like heaven if they could have it. They are, in a sense, already in hell, preferring darkness to light." (Eternal Perspectives, Randy Alcorn, p 76)

Since idolatry leads to the conceptual murder of God and the rejection of His work on the cross, this means that by their own choice, idolaters judge themselves unfit for Paradise.  It is idolaters who shut themselves out of paradise. In affirmation, C.S. Lewis says that Hell is of their choosing:

"There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, in the end, 'Thy will be done.' All that are in Hell chose it."

Ponerology: the Sons of Belial and Macrosocial Evil

"Political Ponerology" is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej M. Łobaczewski 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 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, F. M. Pigido -an economist who lived and worked in Ukraine during the Famine of 1932-1933, 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." (ibid, Malcolm Muggeridge, British foreign correspondent, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)

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

According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist 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)

A coalition of atheist pagan Jews and atheist pagan Gentiles  (Marxist Communists) systematically stole the personal property of Russians, confiscated and sexually perverted their children and conditioned them to hate the Trinity but Jesus Christ God Incarnate in particular, their own parents, the Christian church and their homeland.  These sons of perdition undermined and destroyed the traditional family, 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 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)

Lobaczewski's  original manuscript quickly went into the furnace just minutes before a secret police raid in Communist Poland.  In 1984 the manuscript was reassembled but its publication blocked by technocratic globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski.  After half a century of suppression it is finally available.

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 men.   Despite this failing, Political Ponerology is a shocking account of the large scale evil, the lack of remorse, willingness to lie, cheat, steal, torture and kill super-heated by hatred of God and burning with will to power or what Lobaczewski terms 'ponerogenic processes'  that have overtaken whole societies and nations since time immemorial.

When ponerogenic processes have finally encompassed a society's entire ruling class and opposition from morally convicted people has been crushed, then we are dealing with what Lobaczewski calls Macrosocial Evil or a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." (p. 121)

Ponerogenic processes are synonymous with inflated pride issuing in covetousness, selfishness, ingratitude, jealousy, resentment and hate, all of which early Church Fathers combined into the cold-blooded vice known as envy.   Thus when 'macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon' have encompassed a nation's  ruling class and most of its society it means that a tyranny of madness and murderous envy have overtaken it.  

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.

Scripture attributes poneros to the Evil One, the leader of all forces of evil.   The Evil One is the spirit of rebellion and negation, the father of lies, "the adversary" "the accuser,"  "calumniator" and undiluted essence of envy who works through the principle of negation and rebellion in the fallen souls of lawless natural men:

"The evil man out of his evil treasure bringeth forth evil (poneros) things" Matthew 12:35

Poneros  has played a part in human dynamics ever since the Spirit of Envy persuaded the envy-bitten Cain to murder his brother Abel, Judas to betray Jesus Christ 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)  

Poneros is also the spirit animating British philosopher Adam Smith's shamelessly phony concern posed in questions and 'evidence' such as,

"Is having a loving family an unfair advantage?"  “Should parents snuggling up for one last story before lights out be even a little concerned about the advantage they might be conferring?” 

“Evidence shows that the difference between those who get bedtime stories and those who don’t – the difference in their life chances – is bigger than the difference between those who get elite private schooling and those that don’t." (Parents reading to kids blasted as 'unfair,' Joe Kovacs, WND, May, 2015)

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. brilliantly captures the spirit of poneros in his short story, "Harrison Bergeron,"

"THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General."   

As a tyranny of poneros had  finally overtaken and led to the degradation and implosion of ancient Greek society an exploration of Greek thought with regard to types of envy will prove enlightening.

The first type is 'zelos,' a kind of envy stirred up by any perceived superiority.  In the poem, 'Work and Days,' Isocrates presents the spirit of zelos as "with grim face and screaming voice, who delights in evil" and causes Decency and Respect to flee.  In a widely circulated article called "Gay Revolutionary," the anonymous author "Michael Swift" warns the envied straight community in prose that chills the spine:

"We shall be victorious because we are filled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages...We too are capable of firing guns and manning barricades of the ultimate revolution....Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks."  (Spirit Wars: Pagan Revival in Christian America, Peter Jones, p. 255)

Empowered by spineless jellies throughout our government, the envy-bitten men and women of modern Sodom maliciously terrorize Christian bakers, florists, bed and breakfast owners and other decent, law-abiding straights, forcing them to either submit or lose everything even as the men of Sodom openly rape the souls and bodies of their sons and daughters in our American Sodom and Gomorrah. (Envy and the Greeks: A Study of Human Behavior, Peter Walcot, pp. 2-3 from Death by Envy, Fr. George R. A. Aquaro, p. 12)

As the Holy Triune God is the moral monster responsible for the poor choices, weaknesses, and failures of the self-absorbed, Zelos is also the spirit behind the 'murder' of the Christian God, the closing off of the supernatural dimension and the Way to Paradise with the requisite suppression of His Revelation to man, the miracle of Special Creation and Original Sin. Thus zelos is the lying, hateful, intolerant spirit behind the elevation of evolutionary scientism above the inerrant Word of God. 

Zelos animates gossip, slander, the politics of personal destruction, special rights and privileges for the so-called oppressed (envy-bitten), inclusion and the absolutism of tolerance. It demands redistribution of wealth, egalitarian sameness, loss of gender identity in favor of gender-neutral identification, same-sex marriage, 'legalized' illegal immigration, the mandated sexualization and perversion of our youth by pan-sexual and omni-gendered sexologists, and a boot heel viciously crushing the faces of all  envied "oppressors."  Morally zelos is the venom behind America's reigning legalism: political correctness, hate crime laws, speech codes, and sensitivity training.  In 'political' terms, zelos is the spirit of multiculturalism, green ecology, green sustainability, global warming/cooling/change, diversity, and socialism.

In "Diversity’: The Idol of Academia," Jack Kerwick describes diversity as a 'god' that is as educationally invidious as it is false:

“Diversity” is not just a good in the academic world. It is the supreme good, the one good before which all other considerations must yield....“cultural diversity” not only doesn’t correspond to a rise in intellectual diversity; it invariably corresponds to a rise in political uniformity. This is crucial, for the promotion of “cultural diversity” is nothing more or less than the promotion of a left-wing ideological agenda."  (June 26, 2014 Jack Kerwick, Front Page Magazine)

Zelos in its every hateful, sadistic permutation is the evil spirit behind left-wing ideology and its' totalitarian fantasy:

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

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

Philotimia and hybris are next.   In Greek mythology, philotimia is narcissism--love of self, love of attention, love of self-affirmation, love of self-gratification-- while hybris is the arrogance, insolence, contempt, insult, shame , hatred and mistreatment of a perceived inferior by a sadistic narcissist. In Greece, philotemia and hybris  were seen when the gods and their earthly counterparts punished inferior for usurping their authority as well as when they struggled amongst themselves for positions of primacy.   In America, philotimia and hybris are seen in America's left-right 'ruling class,' god-men, their liberal proletariat and their lapdog media in their vicious psychological bullying, and other forms of mistreatment of the hard-working middle class, especially the morally informed such as God-fearing faithful Christians and Jews and the Tea Party.   Philotimia/hybris is likewise the spirit animating the intolerant attitudes of evolutionary theologians toward defenders of the faith once given. 

Phthonos is the fourth type of envy/covetousness.  Phthonos seeks to deprive  the envied 'other' of possessions, honor, status, and spiritual virtues.  Phthonos, for example, is the totalitarian spirit of Agenda 21, carbon footprints, population control schemes, passive euthanasia, the attempted theft of Bundy's ranch and other private property, and global change.  Phthonos is driven not just to ostracize and confiscate but to use terroristic force to take or deprive 'other' of whatever is envied.  Phthonos can drive a man (i.e., Cain) to murder his own brother and even to "kill" God (i.e., Nimrod, Karl Marx).

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

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

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

The fifth type of envy is vaskonia or Evil Eye (ophthalmos poneros, Sauron) and means something even more malignant than phthonos.    Vaskonia is expressive of an evil spirit associated with possession and the malign touch or glance of which leaves a soiled imprint and implies instant victimization and death.   Vaskonia is inherently sudden, meaning one wrong word, one wrong look on one's face, or the impulse of a momentary passion is all it takes to become its' victim.

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

Today increasing numbers of Americans at every level of society, on both left and right, Christian and secular, are controlled by their passions unfettered from the restraint of transcendent moral law.   Adding to the problem is the culturally relevant 'seeker-sensitive' church model attended by thousands of Americans that caters to felt-needs and self-indulgent emotional feel-goodism.  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)

The most frightening aspect of America's descent into moral imbecility, narcissism, sophistry, and lawlessness is that our society is being overtaken by "ponerological processes."   Through the White House, legislatures, media, Hollywood, courts, academia, pentagon, seminaries and even pulpits, the spirit of poneros, of envy and hate, is encompassing our society, suppressing morally informed people, and overspreading our nation with a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon" eventuating in a tyranny of evil. 

In order that we may understand the tyranny of evil sweeping over and through our post-Christian society Herbert Schlossberg proposes that we use idolatry as a framework for comprehension.   The biblical explanation of moral imbecility, lawlessness and narcissism in connection with the end of society resides in the concept of judgment upon an idolatrous people (Ro. 1:28-32)

"Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you...saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known..."   (Deut. 13: 13; Judges 19: 22, 20:13; 1 Sam. 1:16, 2:12, 10:27, 25:17, 25:25, 30:22; 2 Sam. 16:7, 20:1, 23:6; 1 Kings 21:10, 21:13; 2 Chron. 6:15, 13:7)

Scripture depicts a societies' people as either having submitted themselves to the Triune God or else as idolaters (sons of Belial) who having rebelled against Him have been delivered by Him over to worthless, useless, hardened, loveless minds.  This is how the Old Testament portrays Israel.  Israel had become an evil nation of idolaters fully deserving the judgment the Lord brought against it.  Its' rebellion  was accompanied by a turning to idols (which can also be idols of the mind such as scientism and evolutionary cosmogonies) and this idolatry brought the nation to its' end.

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over the Holy Trinity and neighbor). The will of the proud man is not in submission to the Trinity but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses 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 vices: pathological lying, treachery, murderous thoughts, gluttony, greed, covetousness, 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, mass-murder (genocide) and man-made famines

In the final analysis, malice and envy towards the Holy Trinity compels man to destroy creation and to annihilate his God-given soul/spirit by imagining himself as 'one' with the evolving universe of matter and energy. This is the definition of damnation, said Fr. Aquaro. Hell is not a punishment meted out by a hateful Holy 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:

"The man wakes from the final struggle of death, in absolute loneliness...Not a hint, not a shadow of anything outside his consciousness reaches him...Soon misery will beget on his imagination a thousand shapes of woe, which he will not be able to rule, direct, or even distinguish from real presences." (C.S. Lewis: George MacDonald, an Anthology, p. 61)
