Satanism, Evolutionary Progressive Spirituality, and Goetia

The fundamental premise of contemporary Western Satanism and evolutionary Progressive spirituality is the lie first whispered to Eve in the Garden, that is, the idea of man as deity expressed by ascribing to man attributes of the personal Triune God. According to the lie, man is sovereign (morally autonomous) and characterized by the supremacy of his omniscient reason, mystical mind-powers (i.e., gnosis), and intuition. Since man stands beyond good and evil he is morally perfect.  As he is the uncreated product of evolution he is not fallen but rather evolving ever upward away from his ape ancestry toward perfection, therefore he needs no personal Savior.   Put simply, the “lie” is this:

"...you are your own god and thus possess the requisite authority, information, and wisdom to properly determine what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, nothing objective or external to you has the authority to tell you how to live your life; not other people and, certainly, not God. But, rather than become truly “enlightened,” we have become morally stupid. In America, this cultural disease has run its dark course and is now so complete that we self-destructively call good “evil” and evil “good.”  (Why Christians are Hated in America, Christian News Journal, Aug. 24, 2015)

This is rebellion and idolatry, plain and simple. And there is no greater example of the arrogance of the god delusion than Progressive spirituality. There are many modern Progressive humanist philosophies and "religions" premised on the god delusion. For example: Gnostic Marxism, Fascism, Secular Humanism, Cosmic Trans-humanism, Illumined Theosophy, Liberal theology, Satanism and global Technocracy.

Progressive spirituality is actually little more than an ungrateful, egoistic creature kicking, scratching, spitting, spewing, and throwing a tantrum while screaming at its Creator that He has it all wrong and that the so-called scientifically enlightened god-men know better, therefore refuse to allow the Lord's moral boundaries to define and restrain them.  The wicked will of egoists has replaced the Lord, truth, and virtue in America, and like a monstrous steamroller is intolerantly crushing everyone and everything in its path.

Satanism and Progressive Spirituality

Satanism is a type of humanism and between it, Progressive spirituality and the others the common denominator is the narcissistic tantrum-throwing creature in rebellion as seen in the following examples:

A. Satanists and evolutionary Progressives disavow the Fall, which in practical terms means that Lucifer never fell and is therefore not the devil. Thus Satanists foolishly claim that the devil is merely the invention of Christianity while other equally foolish Progressives and other humanists laud Lucifer as the first free thinker, the Garden's liberator of mankind, the bringer of illumination, man's genetic creator, evolution's seething energy and angel of evolution.

B. Both Satanists and Progressives are practitioners of black magic, the primary power of which is 'The Lie.' There is for example the relentless lies of propaganda, the lie that Jehovah is dead, the lie that evolution is a fact of science, the lie that man evolved from the ape, the lie that sin and hell do not exist, the lie of global change/cooling/warming/whatever works. If you believe the lies then liars have power over your will and mind.

Black magic is an ancient practice extending back into antiquity. The goal of its' practitioners was the acquisition of power over creation and over the minds of other men  by unpatterning or uncreating creation. Its methods, said J. Budziszewski, professor of government at the University of Texas and author of "What We Can't Not Know," are forms of goetia.....black magic. (p. 198)

Modern goetia is the Big Lie in practice. With respect to Satanism and Progressive spirituality it works by a process of inversion, that is, it elevates the lower order of creation, meaning the evolving universe of energy and matter, man, and Satan over the Creator God and His heavenly or supernatural realm. In practice it looks like this:

"….it is but natural…to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: “in the day ye eat thereof, ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil” – can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour….”   “And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” (brimstone was a theological improvement), and Lucifer, or “Light Bearer,” is in us: It is our Mind – our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism. Without this principle… we would be surely no better than animals” (“The Secret Doctrine,” Volume II, Helena Blavatsky, Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243)

2. The material or natural dimension over the supernatural

3. Certain highly evolved god-men and an all-powerful mystical god-state over God the Father and all other men

4.  Evolutionary cosmogonies (anti-creation accounts) over the Genesis account (creation ex nihilo); the neutrality principle (subjectivism/nihilism/deconstruction) over God's Revealed Word and eternally unchanging Moral Law;  apes and nature over the faceless masses; pantheist collectivism over individuality; meaninglessness over meaning; androgyny over the two created sexes; fluid sexual relationships over traditional marriage, death over life, evil over good, dark over light, lie over truth, unnatural over natural, disorder over order, and grey matter (brain) over spirit (mind).

This is the black magic spell cast by Gnostic Progressives, scientific materialists, God is dead theologians, and Satanists over all who believe the lies. The minds of all who reject God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, embrace evolutionary thinking (even if by default) and have either forgotten their souls or accept that they either have no souls or perhaps have just a spark or essence as modern Gnostics teach, thus their minds have been captured and locked up in the narrow, darkened confines of a psychic cage.

Other Similarities:

C. Regarding faithful, orthodox Christian theists, Anton Szander LaVey's Satanic Bible states,

 "Cursed are the gazers toward a richer life beyond the grave, for they shall perish amidst plenty. Blessed are the destroyers of false hope, for they are the true messiahs. Cursed are the god-adorers for they shall be shorn sheep."

The Humanist Manifesto II likewise declares:

"We believe that traditional dogmatic or authoritarian religions that place revelation, God, ritual or creed above human needs and experience do a disservice to the human species. As non-theists, we begin with humans not God, nature not deity."

D. With respect to immortal salvation the Satanic Bible states:

  "I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad redeemer and write over his thorn-torn brow: The true prince of evil - the king of the slaves!"

In a similar vein, the Humanist Manifesto declares:

 "Promises of immortal salvation or fear of eternal damnation are both illusory and harmful"

E. About the living God's Moral Law the Satanic Bible says:

"There is nothing inherently sacred about moral codes. Like the wooden idols of long ago, they are the work of human hands and what man has made, man can destroy!"

The autonomous evolutionary Secular Humanist can likewise unmake Moral Law, therefore,

"Ethics is autonomous and situational...."  (Humanist Manifesto II)

F. There is no heaven or hell. All that exists is the here and now, therefore said LaVey:

"I break away from all conventions that do not lead to my earthly success and happiness..." (Satanic Bible)

Aping LaVey, the Humanist Manifesto II states:

"We strive for the good life here and now."

G. With regard to man's sovereignty, LaVey declares,

 "No creed must be accepted upon authority of a "divine" nature. Religions must be put to the question. No moral dogma must be taken for granted - no standard of measurement deified."

The Humanist Manifesto similarly states:

" We reject all religious, ideological or moral codes that denigrate the individual, suppress freedom, dull intellect, dehumanize personality. In the area of sexuality, we believe that intolerant attitudes, often cultivated by orthodox religions and puritanical cultures, unduly repress sexual conduct. The right to birth control, abortion and divorce should be recognized. It also includes a recognition of an individuals right to die with dignity, euthanasia and the right to suicide."

Behind black magic (the power of the Lie) is the devil and his foot-soldiers-- hardened reprobate spirits attacking, oppressing and even trying to take possession of the mind and will of other human spirits, thus the truth about evil, said Church Father Athanasius, 

"...is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

What does the Lord have to say to evolutionary humanists and Satanists about their idolatry, defiance, rebellion, and black magic? Thus saith the Lord,

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20

Because they hate Truth and prefer lies they fall prey to and become ensnared by every lie, deception, and untruth that their kind (natural men of 2 Tim. 3: 1-5) can invent, thus their thinking becomes twisted and vain:

 “For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:21-22).

As a result of their foolishness and arrogant disdain of the things of the Holy Trinity, He gives them over to a depraved mind, "to do what ought not be to be done." (Romans 1:28)

And correspondingly,

“Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things, but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32).

The Revealed Word of God makes it clear that during the end times the Lord sends a strong delusion to all who choose not to believe the gospel of Christ. These He will condemn because they refuse to love the Truth and so be saved:

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness” (Romans 1:18) " For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).  “They have chosen their own ways, and their souls delight in their abominations; so I (the Lord) also will choose harsh treatment for them and bring upon them what they dread. For when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, no one listened. They did evil in My sight and chose what displeases Me” (Isaiah 66:3-4).

Therefore take heed, and repent before it is too late:

"Wash yourselves, make yourself clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil. Learn to do good." Isaiah 1:16-17

Semjaza, Azazel, Androgyny & America's Apostasy into Pagan Spirituality & Sexuality

"Because that they have forsaken me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in my ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father."  1 Kings 11:33

"ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god which ye made to yourselves."  (Amos 5:26-27) "ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them." ( Acts 7:42-43)
 
Chiun in Amos answers to Remphan in Acts; and this god in turn is but another phase of Moloch or Saturn, the "star god," A star was put on the head of the images of the idol representing Saturn; hence "images" answer to "star" in parallelism while  Remphan and Chiun answer to the Phoenician goddess Astarte or Ashtoreth (1), as well as to Moloch, Cybele, Pan and Cernunnos, the horned god of Celtic polytheism and in India to Parvati and Siva, the androgynous destroyer of worlds. 

The Return of Ashtar and Semjaza 
 
World-renowned UFOlogist and archaeologist Dr. Clifford Wilson is but one of many researchers who have pointed out how an entity calling itself "Ashtar" keeps popping up in UFO accounts.   Apart from Semjase (Samlazaz, Semjaza), who has been posing as a modern space-brother, Ashtar keeps appearing in UFO literature as well as ancient texts.  John Keel, one of the world's most published and highly respected UFOlogists also noted this.   Highlighting the element of deception he wrote:
 
"Thousands of mediums, psychics, and UFO contactees have been receiving mountains of messages from "Ashtar" in recent years.... Ashtar is not a new arrival.    Variations of this name, such as Astaroth, Ashar, Asharoth, etc. appear in demonological literature throughout history, both in the Orient and Occident.   Mr. Ashtar had been around a very long time, posing as assorted gods and demons and now, in the modern phase, as another glorious spaceman."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 290)
 
Astoreth (Inanna, Ashtar, Ishtar of the Accadians, Semiramis, Milcom, Cybele, Astarte of the Greeks, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite; 1 Kings 11:5, 33; 2 Kings 23:13) was the androgynous consort of Anu, the supreme sky god.  
 
According to Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their,

“...devotion to Istar who herself had ‘transformed their masculinity into femininity.'”  (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Jones, truthxchange)

The androgynous Ishtar required androgynous priests to function as "her" temple priests (shaman)  who engendered demonic abhorrence in others:
 
"…the fearful respect they provoked is to be sought in their otherness, their position between myth and reality, and their divine-demonic ability to transgress boundaries.”
 
The Baal-Astarte (Astoreth) nature religions of ancient Canaan appear to maintain a similar view of spirituality and obscene sexuality. The goddess Anat (Astarte) preserves many of the characteristics of Istar. Like the Syrian goddess Cybele, Anat is headstrong and submits to no one. She/he is androgynous, being both young and nubile but also a bearded soldier:
 
"She thus symbolizes the mystical union, which was celebrated by her worshipers as a ritual enactment of the hieros gamos [sacred spiritual marriage]. The Old Testament gives some indication that Canaanite religion included homosexual androgyny, against which Israel was constantly put on guard." (Jones)
 
Beginning with the Babylonian mystery religion in the post-flood world, as with all mystery religions and occult secret societies around the world, the highest stage of enlightenment/illumination is achieved through the internalization,

 "... of duality and the equilibrium between opposing forces –  good and evil, active and passive. male and female. This concept is symbolically represented by the horned, hermaphrodite god Baphomet."  It is also represented in "alchemical symbolism with Alchemical Androgynes such as Caitlyn/Bruce Jenner." (The Agenda Behind Bruce Jenner's Transformation, Vigilant Citizen)

Conjunctio, the unification of all the opposites within oneself means the asexual shaman is beyond gender difference residing in the bliss of abiding love:

"The Siberian shamans...and the shamans of Central Asia engage in ecstatic rituals and dress as androgynes. Among the Ngadju Dyak, a pagan people-group...of southern Borneo, the basir, “asexual priest-shamans…true hermaphrodites, dressing and behaving like women,” have a priestly function.” This behavior also characterizes Amazonian shamans, Celtic priests [ancient and modern], and Indian hijras. The hijras, who go back into the mists of Hinduism, are a religious community of men who “dress and act like women and whose cul-ture centers on the worship of Bahuchara Mata, one of the many versions of the Mother Goddess worshipped throughout India.” In another form of Hindu spirituality, Tantric Yoga, androgyny is also the goal, where the two contrary principles of Shiva and Shakti are joined....The yogin, through powerful techniques of sexual-spiritual meditation, is thus transformed “into a kind of ‘androgyne.” In Buddhism also the true human, the archetype, called a bodhiasattva, is androgynous. These yogic practices and mystical teachings concerning androgyny are doubtless as old as the Mesopotamian and Syrian examples discussed above."  (Jones)

Who are Semjaza (Shemihazah) and Azazel (Asa’el )?

According to Dr. Michael Heiser, ANE Scholar, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University,

"Azazel is the name of a demon in the Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient Jewish books. In fact, one scroll (4Q 180, 1:8) Azazel is the leader of the angels that sinned in Genesis 6:1-4. The same description appears in the book of 1 Enoch 8:1; 9:6; 10:4–8; 13:1; 54:5–6; 55:4; 69:2)  

Andrei A. Orlov is a specialist in Jewish apocalypticism and mysticism, Second Temple Judaism, and Old Testament pseudepigrapha. Within the field of Second Temple Jewish apocalyptic literature, Orlov is considered among the leading experts in the field of Slavonic texts related to Jewish mysticism and Enochic traditions.  With respect to Azazel (Asa'el) Orlov argues that the fallen angel was not just a leader of the fallen angels but "the" leader.  In this view it was Asae'l who instigated the rebellion of the Watchers against the Lord, revealed heavenly secrets and impregnated the daughters of men, thereby siring giants.  According to a fragmentary text from the Book of Giants found at Qumran (4Q203) the punishment for all the sins of the fallen angels is placed on Azazel.

 Dr. Heiser identifies the Watchers as serpentine Seraphim,

"There are "good" serpentine beings (seraphim) who guard God's throne (so Isaiah 6's seraphim), and there are fallen, wicked serpentine beings (seraphim) who rebelled against the Most High at various times, and who became the pagan gods of the other nations."   (Michael Heiser, "Serpentine/Reptillian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

 Gary Bates also turns to the Book of Enoch for answers.  Not only does the Book of Jude 14-15 refer to the book of Enoch but is an exact rendering of Enoch, chapter 1:9.   Moreover, Enoch 6-7 identifies Semjaza as the ringleader of the 200 Watchers who descended Mount Hermon in the pre-flood world:

"Come, let us choose wives from among the children of men and beget us children."  And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: "I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin."  And they all answered him and said: "Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations upon it.  And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon....And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz (Shemihazah)... Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, Asael (Azazel), Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqlel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel."  (Alien Intrusion, Bates, p. 398)

The Watchers taught men enchantments, sorcery, transformism (change or evolution of one kind into another kind), astrology, science of constellations, signs, the smitings of spirits and demons, and the smitings of the embryo in the womb, that it may pass away.  They also taught men how  to make weapons of war.  
 
In the Biblical epic fantasy "Enoch Primordial," Biblical scholar and ANE researcher Bryan Godawa tells the story of the Fall of the Watchers and the rise of the Nephilim generations before the Flood.   After descending Mount Hermon the two leaders of the fallen Watchers, Semjaza and Azazel choose to become the gods Anu and Inanna, the horned androgynous goddess of war and obscene sexuality whose worship was marked by temple prostitution, transgenderism, bi-sexuality, sexual mysticism, ecstatic pleasure and bloody sadistic pain and human sacrifice.  

 As Ishtar, the male angel Azazel was the "wife" of Tammuz who was also her son :
 
"And He said to me, "Yet you will see still greater abominations which they are committing." Then He brought me to the entrance of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and behold, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz. He said to me, "Do you see this, son of man? Yet you will see still greater abominations than these."   Ezekiel 8:13-15

Speaking of Semiramis (Ishtar) and her "son" Tammuz, noted English archeologist and antiquarian Alexander Hislop said:

"The Babylonians....supremely worshipped a goddess mother and son (Semiramis and Tammuz). From Babylon, this worship of the mother and child spread to the ends of the earth.  In Egypt, (they were worshipped) under the names of Isiis and Osiris.  In India, even to this day, as Isi (or Parvati) and Ishwara (the Indian God Ishwara is represented as an infant at the breast of his own wife, Isi, or Parvati)....the Hindu mythology is admitted to be essentially Babylonian." (The Two Babylons, Hislop, 1916, pp. 20, 78, 96)

The mystery religion of Babylon is the taproot of all mystery religions, occult psycho-spiritual techniques (3), occult secret societies (such as the Masons), secret initiations, and secret knowledge (gnosis/illumination).  It promises the keys to the tree of life (immortality) as well as divinity.   India has been the vineyard where the Babylonian mystery religion took root unhindered and fermented over the centuries into a refined wine. (2)   Its' exalted priesthood has been identified across space and time with androgyny, indicating beyond a doubt, the enormous priority paganism has given, and continues to give in our own time "to the undermining of God-ordained monogamous heterosexuality, and the enthusiastic promotion of androgyny in its varied forms."  (Jones)

The "Death" of the Triune God

C.S. Lewis observed in The Abolition of Man (1947) that Cosmic (Eastern-oriented mystical pantheism) and Secular Humanism (pagan materialism) appeared in Western history in the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance. The Renaissance reawakened a magic view of the world closely connected with pagan Gnostic sectarianism, Eastern pantheism as well as the science of magic, spiritism, and the mysteries. Along with Eastern pantheism came spiritual evolution, reincarnation, karma and occultism, which means that evolutionary conceptions existed long before Darwin.

Early on Lewis understood that Cosmic and Secular Humanism were merely two sides of the same revival of pagan monism. Thus he argued, Cosmic and Secular Humanism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies united against the transcendent Creator, His created order, miracles, Heaven, Hell, the Fall, the Gospel of Christ, and Christian-based civilization.

Brooks Alexander also identifies both Cosmic and Secular Humanism as the two sides of pagan monism. And because they are from the same root they tend to cross-pollinate and:

"mingle, producing a brood of offspring that exhibits the genetic heritage of its parents in a confused and confusing array. Soon it becomes impossible to say whether a given movement, trend or school of thought is a secular impulse that has absorbed Eastern/occult values, or an Eastern/occult teaching that has dressed itself in secular language." (The Rise of Cosmic Humanism: What is Religion?" Brooks Alexander, SCP Journal, 1981-82, p. 2)

When during the Sixties, theologians triumphantly declared the “death of God,” they fostered a rejection of the theism of the Judeo-Christian scriptures, as well as an abandonment of biblical sexuality. Theologian David Miller declared in 1974:

"…the announcement of the death of God was the obituary of a useless single-minded and one-dimensional norm of a civilization that has been predominantly monotheistic, not only in its religion, but also in its politics, its history, its social order, its ethics, and its psychology. When released from the tyrannical imperialism of monotheism by the death of God, man has the opportunity of discovering new dimensions hidden in the depths of reality’s history."  (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Peter Jones, truthxchange)
 
Today we see that apostasy from the Holy Triune God and by extension from "In the beginning God created" in favor of anti-creation evolutionary cosmogonies (4) and "He created them male and female" (Gen. 5:2) in favor of LGBTQ is pagan and demonic to the core, and has produced in one generation, in post-Christian America a return to Babylonian nature worship seamlessly merged with Eastern mystery religion and occult pantheism:

"...we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places."  Ephesians 6:12, ESV
 
Revelation reports that at some point the whole world becomes drunk on the wine of Babylon, its' imbibers convinced of their own deity. Toward this end, the Watchers---posing as Transcended Masters, Space Brothers, the Council of Nine, goddesses and spirit guides---teach evolutionary cosmogonies (4) issuing in a man-centered cosmos consisting of an evolving panentheist or pantheist-christ spirit permeating and making sacred everything animate and inanimate.  This sacred evolving christ-force or universal energy is the one monistic reality which comprises both the center and circumference of the universe symbolized by the circle, a snake biting its own tail.  The point of monism (oneness, collectivism) is that since everything is "one" there can be no "twos" such as man and woman and man and God but rather one-integrated being, in other words, a transgender/androgynous god-man. In this view, "Caitlyn" is the androgynous ideal we should strive for individually and Sodom and Gomorrah collectively.  Toward this infernal end the Watchers have made great strides.  Their success is very clearly seen in a fast-moving infernal river of pollution in the form of moral relativism, pornography, abortion, pederasty, pedophilia, sodomy, androgyny, and the same pagan spirituality and obscene androgynous sexuality that has always characterized occult paganism.  Leading the attack of the pollution brigade are apostate theologians, many intellectuals,  President Obama, the State Department and a broad spectrum of U.S. agencies enlisted in the global battle for LGBTQ rights:

"The Departments of State, the Treasury, Defense, Justice, Agriculture, Commerce, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the Export Import Bank, the United States Trade Representative, and such other agencies as the President may designate."  (U.S. State Department to Force Gay Agenda on Foreign Nations, MassResistance) (5)

In the diminishing presence of faithful orthodox Christians and Jews, America for the most part is eagerly abandoning our Lord in favor of pagan spirituality, occultism, and the pan-sexuality of the androgynous goddess of a thousand names: Azazel.  (1 Kings 11:33) All of this leads Peter Jones to ask:
 
"Might we be on the verge of witnessing the construction of an eschatological Sodom and Gomorrah, as the title of a recent pro-gay book, Reclaiming Sodom, suggests?"

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Heb. 10:31).  If He spared not the angels that sinned, but delivered them, drawn down by infernal ropes to the lower hell unto torments (2 Pet. 2:4), then He shall say to the men and women of Sodom and Gomorrah and to all other workers of iniquity (Luke 13:27), depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. (Mat. 25:41)

America's "New" Spiritually Pantheist Worldview

In his newest lecture, “Paganism in Today’s Culture,” Dr. Peter Jones, director of truthXchange and Adjunct professor of Westminster Seminary explains why social boundaries set by nature no longer exist for this generation:

“The Millennial Generation is the first generation of the modern era to receive a fully-developed neo-pagan cosmology masquerading as the correct, progressive view of history and demanding to be inscribed in public policy.

In 1982 Francis A. Schaeffer saw this coming and in his A Christian Manifesto warned the Church:

"Christians…have seen things in bits and pieces… permissiveness, pornography, the public schools, the breakdown of the family, and finally abortion… instead of totals…They have not seen this as a totality–a shift in the world view — that is,…a funda-mental change in the overall way people think and view the world and whole life as a whole.” (Schaeffer)

This has become a cosmology of worldview or network of plausibility structures,

"....so radical it can take your breath away, as stated some years ago by the futurist thinker, Jeremy Rifkin, an adviser to the European Union since 2002 and head of the largest global economic development team in the world. In 1983 at a point in the maturation of the 60’s cultural revolution, he declared in A New Word– A New World:

“We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else’s home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of preexisting cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces…..We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible for nothing outside ourselves, for we are the kingdom.” (Rifkin)

(Dr. Jones’ video here: https://truthxchange.com/media/2015/03/03/peter-jones-paganism-in-todays-culture/ )

America’s founding Christian-based worldview and moral system of Judeo-Christian ethics, having been consistently excluded from government, school, and law has been supplanted with a Humanistic neo-pagan cosmogony and spiritually occult pantheist religion based on occult New Age Transhumanism (man as god), anti-creation Evolution,  Relativism, and Scientism, the autocratic spawn of positivism.

 The father of Positivism was the certifiably insane Frenchman, Auguste Comte (1798-1857).   Comte is celebrated as the first philosopher of science because he elevated science above the Revealed Word with his arrogant, defiant claim that the only authentic knowledge is scientific knowledge.  This naturally discarded all miracles, transcendent universals, immutable Truth and Moral and Natural Law created by the Word of God.  Comte's goal was to replace historical Christianity with a secular humanist nature religion where experts---scientists and engineers---constitute a new priesthood.  

Scientism takes Positivism to an even greater extreme by claiming that only science and its high priests of science and technology can produce authentic knowledge about man, what constitutes right and wrong, and the origins of the universe.   In pursuit of its goals, scientism deceptively stamps immaterial concepts such as evolution and climate change with the label: provable, therefore authentic science.

With respect to the West's neo-pagan, anti-creation evolutionary cosmogony, Benjamin Wiker describes  it as a secularized, geometric-shaped, mathematical formula,

"..entirely stripped of the supernatural (and grounded in a secular/pagan understanding) of nature, science and philosophy that laid down the presuppositions on which Scripture scholarship came to rest...Little (can be) understood about the rise of modern biblical criticism if close attention is not paid to the great cosmological shift that occurs in the seventeenth century...The two occur as part of one revolution because the shift in the meaning of nature includes human nature as well." ( Politicizing the Bible: The Roots of Historical Criticism and the Secularization of Scripture, 1300-1700, Wiker & Hahn, p. 257)

Scientism and anti-creation evolutionism reject the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo together with the Fall and teach instead an inverted exegesis positing billions of years of evolutionary ascent of life from inert matter, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.

This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter, and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are men going to become something else (i.e., supermen, god-men, super robots) but nothing can be said about transgender, sodomy, bestiality, man-boy-love, and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of either eternally existing or spontaneously generated matter which may or may not involve a deity shaped and controlled by scientists, gurus, or other illumined minds.

With regard to soul, if life arose from chemicals and then billions of years later man evolved from lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth.  Like them he has no spirit—will, intellect, and conscience.  He is an androgynous bio-machine or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

The process of worldview transformation has for many years been aided and abetted by weak, accommodating and apostate theologians such as the Hindu-pantheist evolutionary scientist Teilhard de Chardin. Teilhard encouraged Christians to submit to the process of evolution because the promise of this living universal force (evolution) is godhood through fusion with the substance of the pantheist God-substance:

Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is a magnificent means of feeling more at one with God. In (the old, traditional form of Christianity), the universal domination of Christ could…still be regarded as an extrinsic and superimposed power. In a spiritually converging world, this ‘Christic’ energy acquires an urgency and intensity of another order altogether.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p. 590)

Teilhard is almost without question the spiritual father of the rising tide of spiritually pagan and political globalism now taking the West and America by storm. He formulated the dominant conceptual framework for a planetary occult pagan and pantheist cosmology, religion and spiritually totalitarian social order. Describing himself as a mystic and an evolutionary scientist, Teilhard taught that the spiritual, religious and political unification of the earth was the next great evolutionary leap to come and that this fusion was as necessary for the survival of mankind as the fusion of polar opposites (i.e., good with evil, light with dark, male with female, man with god) and the transformation and integration of the Hindu god Shiva (The Destroyer) by Christ:

It is not enough to refuse or ridicule Shiva: for he exists. What is necessary, is to Christify him. Christ would not be complete if he did not integrate Shiva (as a component), whilst transforming him.” (Towards a New Mysticism: Teilhard de Chardin and Eastern Religions, Ursula King)

For Teilhard, Christ is the soul of the divine World (or Gaia). In ” The Future of Man” he taught that the maturing (evolutionary unfolding) of a collective consciousness accompanied by numerical expansions are two aspects inseparably linked to the historical unfolding of the Incarnation. Without the process of biological evolution, which produced the human brain, there would be no souls, and similarly, without the evolution of collective thought, through which human consciousness can be attained on earth, there can be no consummated Christ. In Teilhards’ way of thinking, evolution is man and God becoming conscious of himself and Christ, in this scheme of things, is incarnate within the entire universe.

In this “new,” yet ancient occult pagan way of thinking, revamped and revised for our scientistic age, dissent against scientism and evolution are blasphemous.   Moreover, global cooling/warming/change are ominous excitations of the soul of the divine World-Soul and scientism the knowledge of what makes the divine World sick and angry, thus the hysteria of modern pagans in high places:

We are close to a time when all of humankind will envision a global agenda that encompasses a kind of Global Marshall Plan to address the causes of poverty and suffering and environmental destruction all over the earth.” Al Gore, Earth in the Balance
 
We have reached the critical moment of decision on climate change. Failure to act to now would be deeply and unforgivably irresponsible. We urgently require a global environmental revolution.” Tony Blair,former British PM
 
Climate change should be seen as the greatest challenge to ever face mankind.”Prince Charles
 
Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.” – Barack Obama,US President

 “Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It’s global warming. It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world.” Harry Reid, U.S. Senate majority leader
 
By the end of this century climate change will reduce the human population to a few breeding pairs surviving near the Arctic.” – Sir James Lovelock, Revenge of Gaia

Gnostic Chiliastic-Evolution: Lucifer's Plan of Salvation

For over eighty-five years, Europe and America have been incrementally conquered by the same madness-and-murder inducing demon of egotism, envy, hatred, paranoia, violence, and vengeance that earlier took over Russia, China, Germany, and Italy. This demon is embodied in American and Western Leftists, Progressive Liberals and globalist Luciferian, occult New Age and Technocratic Gnostic pagan and pantheist utopians whose impossible dream of a socialist or communist sinners paradise holds them spellbound.

At the outbreak of the modern era, the (gnostic) system of inverse biblical exegesis was once again activated.”  Ioan Couliano, “The Tree of Gnosis”

Global socialism and communism are socio-political forms of Gnostic pagan faith "determined to rule the world."  This faith is "the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  Communism is, "...the culminating hubris of Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation.  It is scientism gone political." (Frank Meyers, The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

Utopian socialism is a secular, philosophically gnostic form of heretical Protestant (pantheist) liberalism's inverse evolutionary Biblical exegesis grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary proclamation of a coming new order, or Golden Age.  Chiliasm in Greek means "thousand years" and is primarily a God-less version of the millennial belief expressed in some Christian denominations, and literature, that there will be a Golden Age or Paradise on Earth where "Christ will reign" prior to the final judgment and future eternal state, primarily derived from the book of Revelation 20:1-6. Gnostic chiliasm is grounded in belief in the inevitability of an inverse exegesis proclaiming evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, man and then finally transgender god-man and in the perfectibility of this fallen world.  

The Gnostic system of inverse exegesis has persuaded people,

 “...to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation.”  Such inverse thinking means it is now impossible for educated Westerners to conceive of Biblical revelation because “in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future.”  (Franklin Baumer, “The Making of the New Spirituality, James Herrick, p. 150)

Over the course of many years various humanist speculators have formulated chiliastic versions of evolutionism positing an inverted exegesis.  Their ranks include philosophers and lapsed Christian thinkers such as Henri Bergson, Jean Gebser, Alfred North Whitehead and Teilhard de Chardin.  Others are esotericists and occultists such as  Max Theon, Rudolph Steiner, C.W. Leadbeater, Luciferian theosophists Madame Blavatsky and Alice Baily together with Hindu teachers Swami Vivekananda and Sri Aurobindo and integral theorists Edward Haskell, Arthur Young and Ken Wilber. (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 34)

Darwin’s idea is taken by modern Western Gnostics as final proof that the universe is governed, not by the divine will of Jehovah Who created humans out of dust, 

“…but by a virtually divine force Darwin called natural selection.  Having produced human consciousness, evolution may now…be brought directly under the control of its own product, Humanity, the accomplishment of natural selection…”  (ibid, James Herrick, p. 150)

This is why  Utopian Spirituality is promulgated in a "quasi-divine manner as the secular word of God" and will not tolerate dissent. (1) It is vehemently anti-Revealed Word of God, particularly the Genesis creation account ex nihilo which relates Adam and Eve's creation by God and their subsequent fall from a good creation. 

Modern Gnostic Movements

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

Whatever the movement, chiliastic-evolutionary systems are modern forms of ancient and very "elitist" pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnostic pagan and pantheism in which salvation is attained through the 'elitist' knowledge of Gnostic teachers (i.e., contemporary  spiritual guides, gurus, certain 'scientists') possessed of the enlightened knowledge of the Gnostic cosmogony, or evolutionary anti-creation account and worldview.

Benjamin Wiker observes that the modern Gnostic 'scientific' cosmogony is a secularized, mathematical formula,

"..entirely stripped of the supernatural (and grounded in a secular understanding) of nature, science and philosophy that laid down the presuppositions on which Scripture scholarship came to rest...Little (can be) understood about the rise of modern biblical criticism if close attention is not paid to the great cosmological shift that occurs in the seventeenth century...The two occur as part of one revolution because the shift in the meaning of nature includes human nature as well." ( Politicizing the Bible: The Roots of Historical Criticism and the Secularization of Scripture, 1300-1700, Wiker & Hahn, p. 257)

Despite differences, all  modern Gnostic movements unite with all of the world's occult nature religions under the umbrella of ecumenism.  This is due to the Gnostic belief that all nature systems share a single universal truth---that the divine energy (i.e., the Force, evolution, zoe, prana, chi) or impersonal consciousness (i.e., Solar Logos, Christ Consciousness, Brahman, Mind of the Universe) has manifested itself through many deities in different places and at different times.  Thus no one deity can express the totality of the divine energy or consciousness except Satan.  

Helena Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy and New Age spirituality as well as ,leading Masonic thinker and important formulator of chiliastic evolution wrote in her book, "The Secret Doctrine, " volume II,

"....it is but natural...to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind.  For it is he who was the 'Harbinger of Light,' bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah...and (was) the first to whisper: "in the day ye eat thereof ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil"---can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour..." (Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243, 513)  

"And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the "Lord of Phosphorus," and Lucifer, or "Light Bearer," is in us: It is our Mind---our tempter and redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism.  Without this principle...we would be surely no better than animals."  

Satanically inspired Gnostic chiliastic movements have so far produced every bloody communist and socialist catastrophic genicide of the 20th century and underpin contemporary occult-pantheist New Age, Luciferian, and Technocratic globalist hopes and visions of today.

In his article, "Leftism a Radical Faith," Bruce Riggs notes that much of the political history of the extended twentieth century is that of massive extinctions of citizenries by their dictatorial governments:   
 
"Take the engineered mass starvations, torture chambers, firing squads, and gulags of Lenin and Stalin; Nazi gas chambers; Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge killing fields; the genocides of Mao's "Great Leap Forward"; and the tyrannical North Korean Sung dynasty, and one will find that over one hundred million people have been slaughtered."  (American Thinker, Jan. 1, 2014)

The Black Book's authors point to the Darwinian "biological and zoological strain of thinking" as the engine of evil that proved itself to be a most effective means of denying the humanity of Communisms millions of victims. 

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

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

These evil Gnostic-pagan god-State governments systematically dehumanized and murdered millions of men, women, and children in order to create an imagined earthly paradise purified of evil, said Riggs, and this is clearly irrational.  In this sense, leftist ideology is an atheist religion with the look of a religious inquisition. 

 Klaus Fischer puts it this way:   "Totalitarianism represents the twentieth-century version of traditional religiosity; it is in many ways the secular equivalent of the religious life.  Unless this crucial point is captured, the quintessential nature of totalitarianism will elude us." (ibid)    

 This "totalitarian religiosity" is grounded in a dehumanizing evolutionary cosmogony that reduces mankind to aspects of the evolving universe on a par with slugs, weeds, and apes.  This evil religion continues today as a "scientific" secular, politico-centric faith,  

 "....disdainful of theistic beliefs and contemptuous of those who subscribe to them.  It is a faith that, in its historical manifestations, has birthed the murderous tyrannies of the extended twentieth-century----tyrannies that have marched under left-wing banners of Marxism, Communism, and National Socialism, or, more generally and descriptively, Coercive Collectivism." (ibid, Riggs) 

The Coming of Lucifer's New Age Collectivism

Lee Penn calls our attention to the United Religions Initiative that with the Gaia initiative represents the religious facet of the coming New World Order.  The URI is a UN organization that to a significant extent is animated by New Age Luciferian-spirituality. Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to New Age theology which is a syncretistic stew of ancient Mystery Religions, ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, the Gnostic Gospels, Liberal and/or Progressive Christianity, Theosophy, Spiritism, Eastern mysticism, African animism, Wicca, Goddess worship, and adulation of Lucifer.

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

New Age spirituality relies heavily on the spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Penn notes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes:

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

2. Proclaiming that we humans are gods and that death is not real

3. Advocacy for extreme population control, including eugenics and euthanasia

4. Utter contempt for traditional religions — with concentrated scorn directed at Judaism, evangelical Protestantism, and Roman Catholicism

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

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

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

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

In other words, because Christianity holds that there is an unbridgeable gulf between God and man and nature that is only breached by Jesus Christ then man does not share the substance of God as pantheism holds, thus the substance of God is not within man but apart from man. According to Christianity man is radically different from God and atonement or mediation is achieved only through Christ, who rose from the dead. 

By contrast, Luciferian philosophy and the philosophy of Gaia hold that the evolving universe of matter and psychic energy is a god of divine forces, and that by way of occult rituals such as transcendental meditation or even by worshipping nature, humans can attain oneness with god.  Some followers of Gaia believe that humans, after death, are reincarnated into non-human forms. In any case, Gaia must be protected from humans. Cliff Kincaid comments:

 "U.S. taxpayers are being forced to subsidize a new form of state religion which holds that natural resources have to be protected for the sake of Gaia, a so-called Earth spirit.  This religious movement, which has cult-like qualities, is being promoted by leading figures and organizations such as Vice President Albert Gore, broadcaster Ted Turner, and the United Nations....Those promoting the Gaia concept have no qualms about using the full force of government, even the international resources of the United Nations, to impose their beliefs on the rest of us.  If they are successful in their drive for "sustainable development" to protect Gaia, they could stifle economic growth and promote a drastic decline in the American standard of living."   (ibid)

All modern Gnostic pagan movements share the same chiliastic goal:  a coming "new order" purified of all evil, that is, all faithful Christians and Jews and other dissenters who refuse to become one-with the mystical collective.   Purification extends as well to the Ten Commandments, Yahweh ordained institutions (i.e. marriage), and all previous moral standards, sexual ethics and traditions---seen as relative to a particular stage in the ongoing process of evolution.  These will be forever changed just as all distinctions between life forms and gender will be blurred in the idea of evolution from molecule to man and woman to androgynous he-she ('gay") and god-man.  In the same way, all distinctions between nations and religions will be blurred in the chiliastic vision of this-worldly perfection.

Together with chiliasm, evolution is a,

"...deep-seated primordial force, which seems to capture people quite apart from their conscious attitudes and reasoning (because) it's been drilled into everyone from the cradle, and therefore is very hard to bring out and look at rationally." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p. 35)

Evolution is the anti-creation gospel of an the serpent, thus is the antithesis of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo. So powerful is its' hold on millions of modern Western minds that it has successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism. With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.

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

1. The Left Will Always Be With Us,  David Solway, American Thinker, 1/17/2018

Technocracy: The Worldview in Back of the "Gay" Juggernaut

The U.S. Supreme Court has cleared the way for same-sex weddings to start in Alabama,

"...letting the number of gay-marriage states climb in advance of a constitutional showdown that may mean legalization nationwide."   (Gay Marriage Cleared by U.S. High Court to Start in Alabama, Greg Stohr, Bloomberg Politics, Feb. 9, 2015)

For more than 80 years America has been undergoing a dramatic worldview change from its' founding Christian-based worldview to a naturalistic worldview undergirded by Technocracy, Transhumanism, Scientism, Evolution, moral relativism and androgyny, the pagan ideal.  Thus the re-definition of marriage follows the re-definition of man as uncreated emergent androgynous product of evolutionary energies acting on matter over millions of years.  This is why, at the behest of global Technocrats, the Obama administration America has become the world's perverse-sex cop intervening in the workings of other nations where sodomy, lesbianism and worse are not promoted and tolerated. America's tax-payer financed State Department and other federal agencies have not only strengthened the work already done in pursuit of this evil but have initiated additional efforts to crush dissent in defense and promotion  of all things unnatural.(Obama offers plan for U.S. to be global LGBT sex cop, Bob Unruh, WND, 12/7, 2011)

The gay (androgynous) juggernaut, moral relativism, unfettered killing defined as 'choice,' pornography as a Constitutional right, apostasy, and other social evils have been unleashed within America and onto the world because in post-Christian America, scientism (spawn of positivism) and anti-creation evolutionary thinking have supplanted God's Infallible Word.

Anti-creation evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. It is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion,

"...a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint—and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it—the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.… Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity."  Michael Ruse

Michael Ruse was professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada. He was the leading anti-creationist philosopher whose flawed arguments  convinced a biased judge to rule against the Arkansas ‘balanced treatment’ of creation and evolution in schools bill proposed in 1981. At the trial, he and other anti-creationists loftily dismissed the claim that evolution was an anti-god religion.  (creation.com)
 
The Technocratic worldview--scientism, evolutionary biology and evolutionary cosmogonies such as the Big Bang, a fraudulent metaphysical project---is 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. Anti-creation 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 pantheist spirituality and 'Christian' theological permutations such as Teilhard de Chardin's Hindu-pantheist New Religion, Michael Dowd's God-less evolutionary 'Christian' paganism, and the progressive creationism popularized by astronomer Hugh Ross.

Scientism and anti-creation evolutionism reject the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo together with the Fall and teach instead an inverted exegesis positing billions of years of evolutionary ascent of life from chemicals, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.

This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter, and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are men going to become something else (i.e., supermen, god-men, super robots) but nothing can be said about transgender, sodomy, bestiality, man-boy-love, and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by a Cosmic Egg which may or may not involve a man-shaped-and-controlled deity.

With regard to soul, if life arose from chemicals and then billions of years later man evolved from lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth.  Like them he has no spirit—will, intellect, and conscience.  He is an androgynous bio-machine or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

The worldview change overtaking America is an anti-creation religion of modern man, who like Nimrod, is in rebellion against the Holy Trinity and cannot be fixed by politics.

Bruce Jenner's Futile Attempt to Escape His Suffering

Moved by compassion, Matt Barber tries to warn Bruce Jenner of a major pitfall:

"Though it eludes your vision, it looms all the same but a few short steps ahead of you. While at the time of this writing you have yet to confirm or deny reports, multiple media outlets are abuzz with rumors that you intend to “transition from male to female.”  (An Appeal to Bruce Jenner, Matt Barber, barbwire.com, 7 February, 2015) 

As you ultimately know in your heart-of-hearts, this extreme path you appear to have chosen to take at this late stage in your life,

"....is not the answer to the question, “Who is Bruce Jenner?” You must certainly be aware, if only deep down, that to “transition from male to female” is a hopeless and hapless impossibility, biologically, emotionally, spiritually and in every other way imaginable. If you have been convinced otherwise, you labor under grave deception."

There is a reason that after “sex reassignment” surgery,

"...so-called “transgender” people commit suicide at a rate 20 times higher than normal and, despite rationalizations to the contrary, imaginary “transphobia” is not that reason. If you follow through with this, Bruce, you will be making, second only to denying Christ, the biggest mistake of your life."

Who is Bruce Jenner?

Contrary to the modern "scientific" and "evolutionary" definition of man as soulless bio-machine, an emergent product of evolutionary energies acting on matter over millions of years, man is actually a soul/spirit (mind) embedded within flesh (matter).  Thus the real person and his or her gender is not the body but rather his or her inner person, making gender innate.  In this light what drives some males and females to reject their inner person in favor of homosexuality, lesbianism, androgynous trans-sexuality or a non-gender specific designation?  

Answer: the question of evil and suffering and a compelling desire to escape their gnawing teeth.

Whether it is environmental evil resulting from hurricanes, floods, fires, tsunamis or earthquakes; physical suffering resulting from loss of limbs, cancer, or some other debilitating condition; or moral evil (sin), not one of us escapes it, meaning all people--not just some--suffer, and today with the Christian God Who created everything seen and unseen ex nihilo mainly dead in the hearts of modern Westerners and Americans and with little or no restraints upon the sin nature of men, not since the 20th century has the existence of human evil been as apparent as in our largely humanized hence morally relative century where evolution, scientism, the disordered intellect and libido are worshipped rather than our Father in heaven.  Hence the dilemma expressed by the ancient Greek nature philosopher Epicurus is repeated by millions of Westerners and Americans today:

Omnipotence could, Benevolence would have prevented evil.”

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? If my body is my own why must it accommodate another life growing within 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 Nimrod to Karl Marx and contemporary "God is dead" rebels and apostates, the answer is the transcendent Authority of God the Father Almighty together with the fallen condition of man and the world.

"Then the lust, when it hath conceived, beareth sin: and the sin, when it is fullgrown, bringeth forth death." James 1:15 ESV

The psalmist compares the disordered thoughts of the intellect and will turned toward evil to a conception, and when they go out in word and act, they "bring forth" death.  This was the case during the course of the 20th century when God-hating Gnostic-pagan socialist and communist regimes brutally murdered somewhere between 160,000,000-350,000,000 men, women, and children in their insane attempts at scientifically engineering the ideal society and New Man free from evil/suffering, especially the evils 'caused' by the Christian God, Original Sin, Moral Law, immutable Truth, monogamous marriage, the two created sexes, ethical restraints, cultural taboos and all conditions that make for envy:

"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) 

Nature sages such as Epicurus and his Western and American contemporaries seek the same end but  start from the opposite extreme.  For them, desire of unfettered libido, immortality and its’ corollary, fear of death, is anesthetized through self-indulgence: immersion in drugs, alcohol, sex, freedom from one's innate gender, parties, plastic surgery, entertainment, technology, body-building, accumulation of things and status, and other temporal pleasures.  Self-indulgence is the supreme good. If it feels good, then do it for tomorrow we die.

With Nietzsche we see another form of escape: defiance, revolt, and negation (scoffing, mocking, harsh criticism, doubting) of God the Father, His Revealed Word, immutable Truths, Moral Law and virtues.  Nietzsche declared the Christian God dead and Christianity a slave morality that cultivates cringing virtues such as self-sacrifice, self-restraint, charity, humility and compassion.  To counter this great ‘evil’ men must cultivate an amoral ‘master morality,’ and produce a ‘race of supermen,’ monstrous psychopaths such as Lenin and Stalin who will send the despised and weak to the wall.  Autonomous super-men must crush whatever and whoever causes them to suffer without the least concern for other people.  Super-men will destroy the "enemy" with defiance, scoffing, mocking, doubting, terror, brute force and murder.

This was the philosophy of Berlin and Moscow which regarded nations and people who were not scientifically re-engineered New Men as worthy only to be sterilized, lobotomized, tormented, used for human experimentation, worked to death as slaves and sent to the wall, meaning liquidated in some fashion.  Together Berlin and Moscow murdered in excess of one-hundred million men, women, and children.

The three-fold attitude in common with all of these natural systems is that suffering, not sin, is the supreme evil thus the only means of dealing with suffering is escape of any kind and complete as possible making peace the absence of suffering. 

In every age, the natural mind unaided by Divine Revelation has tried in vain to solve the problem of evil/suffering. But because the human condition (sin) is responsible for moral evils, the natural man never finds peace though he looks for it everywhere and in its pursuit even rejects his or her inner person in favor of godhood and androgyny:

 "For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the spirit is life and peace."  Roman 8:6 ESV

Divine Revelation tells us that sin, the willful rejection of the Holy God, an attempt by the envious to annihilate Him if possible, is the origin of all three types of evil.  Sin began with Lucifer and then spread to Adam and Eve through abuse of intellect and will resulting in the loss of the supernatural gift of grace (spiritual death).  

Our Heavenly Father did not make Adam perfect because He well-knew the great obstacle to perfection: abuse of will and intellect in the choice of good and evil.  Perfection must wait until men have passed the danger of abusing His gifts of intellect and will, thereby falling as the sinful angels had done before them.  Thus Adam was made good, and before he fell there was perfect harmony between his three natures ---mind (intellect and will), soul, and body (matter)---hence he knew nothing of the polluted, degraded conscience, inflexible will turned to evil, and disordered intellect and emotions that have been the daily experience of spiritually dead men since the disobedience of Adam and Eve.

The supernatural gift of grace was something men were meant to have and would have allowed them to live in perfect control of their emotions and without suffering the loss of their reason.   But since the fall, Adam’s descendants are conceived and born, not in a state of grace as men were originally meant to be, but in a state of sin, a defective state of being deprived of supernatural grace (spiritual death) wherein the disordered soul has predominated in its power over the body. (Heb. 4:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:23)  However, in eternity (Paradise), the supernatural gift of grace will be restored (perfect regeneration of spirit) and perfect harmony will ensue. With regenerated spirit once again elevated to the throne we shall become conscious of glorious powers which we can now neither apprehend nor imagine.  In place of the soul with its disordered passions and fallible, deceptive, inconsistent, illogical reasoning, our Lord's redeemed children shall be gifted with glorious powers, perfect peace and unerring perception of the Truth and Righteousness  which is the prerogative of fully regenerated, untainted spirits.

In the meantime, even in the case of those who have been born again, meaning their spirits are being regenerated, the intellectual faculty is still so incompetent that though such people possess Truth in Divine Revelation they are only able, as Paul tells us, to know and understand it only in part for the present.

Birds do not fly because their bodies have wings but because their inner bird flies.  Flying is for the inner bird as innate as the innate maleness or femaleness of fallen human beings.  This is why Bruce Jenner cannot escape his suffering through rejection of his innate maleness:  

"That emptiness inside, that void you seek to fill cannot be filled by hacking away at yourself. You have a “God-shaped hole” in your heart. You need heart surgery, Bruce, not cosmetic surgery. To attempt change from the outside in is merely superficial. It will lead only to further seeking, heartache and, ultimately, to spiritual death. That longing you feel, that change you seek, can only come from the inside out." (Barber)

Evolution: Anti-Creation Religion of Secular Atheists & Powerful Occult Pantheists

John 1:10 tells us that everything seen and unseen was created ex nihilo by the spoken Word of the Son of God. Jesus Christ is therefore God just as the Father and Holy Spirit are God, thus the Word of the Genesis account is Jesus Christ of the New Testament.  Jesus Christ is the Word.   His Word is Truth even as He Himself is Truth, the same today as yesterday and for always.

 

In the classic work "Earth's Earliest Ages" (1876), G.H. Pember, an English theologian, records that  men of the 19th century are returning to ancient wisdom traditions and thought is "sustaining its flight upon the wings of ancient lore."   Almost every characteristic of antiquity is returning:

"Open intercourse with demons is being renewed on a vast scale in the very heart of Christendom....numerous circles are carrying on magical practices (and the) ancient Mysteries (are being restored together with) mesmeric healings....astrology....and other practices....And, impossible as it would have seemed a few years ago, all these 'superstitions' are floating back....upon the tide of 'modern thought."   They come no longer veiled in mystery, "but in accordance with the spirit of the age, present themselves as the fruit of science...progress....and evolutionary philosophy."   (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, pp. 243, 245)

Today evolutionary philosophy and the ancient wisdom traditions undergirding it are promoted by modern practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular humanist religion, a "full-fledged alternative to Christianity" with meaning and morality, said Michael Ruse,

" I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint—and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it—the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.… Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity."   Michael Ruse
 
Michael Ruse was professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada. He was the leading anti-creationist philosopher whose flawed arguments  convinced a biased judge to rule against the Arkansas ‘balanced treatment’ of creation and evolution in schools bill proposed in 1981. At the trial, he and other anti-creationists loftily dismissed the claim that evolution was an anti-god religion.  (creation.com)
 
As Ruse confessed though, evolution is an anti-creation religion, a "full-fledged alternative to Christianity."  It is promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with spirits, astral plane travels, and Illuminism.  The mother of Illuminism is Babylon's Mystery Religion which teaches that man,
 
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)  

The goal of Illuminism is the transformation of human initiates into supermen  (god-men) who in turn will impose a worldwide totalitarian pagan and occult pantheist state.  During the 20th century Illuminism took the form of scientific socialism and scientific communism.  Today it is 'green' Technocracy, a scientific dictatorship calling for the radical transformation of traditional Western economics, government, law, energy, Christianity, and humanity which is why it maliciously fosters the atheism, amorality, envy, chaos, blood-letting and revolution necessary for undermining and overthrowing already existing governments.  (Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, Patrick M. Wood) 

Scientifically Demonstrable Revelations

In the heart of Christendom at the time of the Renaissance the "alternative" originally took the form of occult pantheist humanism bespeaking evolution of divine spark or spirit to higher and higher states of god-consciousness.  Later on another form arose: evolutionary secular materialist  humanism.  While the former was blatantly occult and spiritually pantheist, the latter was essentially a de-spiritualized pagan materialism---a magical version of the former falsely presenting itself as demonstrable empirical science to masses of hopeless people.  Bereft of assurances of immortality after so great an attack on biblical revelation masses of hopeless people were "begging for a revelation which was scientifically demonstrable."  James Webb

One such 'scientific' revelation was provided by Karl Marx.  Marxs' secular-atheist dialectical-materialism (evolutionism) cannot be understood apart from the inventor of the dialectic system, master-magician G.W.F. Hegel. Hegel was an important member of the occult intelligentsia. He closely studied ancient and modern wisdom traditions including ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic and Babylonian Kabala as well as mesmerism, psychic phenomena, dowsing, precognition, and sorcery. He professed belief in a pantheistic Earth Spirit, and informally aligned himself with Hermetic societies, anti-Christian God Freemasons, and the pantheist-Rosicrucian's. (Hegel and the Hermetic Tradition, Glenn Alexander Magee, 2001)

Enrico Ferri (1856-1926) provides another scientifically demonstrable "revelation.  Ferri was a prominent socialist of his day and an Italian criminologist who for many years was the editor of Avanti, a socialist daily.  In "Socialism and Religious Beliefs"  Ferri confesses that in his scientific "revelation" divine miracle-producing 'knowing' energies animate ideological systems,

 "....modern positive science...has substituted the conception of natural causality for the conception of miracles and divinity....I add that not only is Darwinism not contrary to socialism, but that it forms one of its fundamental scientific premises. As Virchow justly remarked, socialism is nothing else than the logical and vital outcome partly of Darwinism and partly of Spencerian evolution." (Marxists.org)

In another example of a scientifically demonstrable "revelation," Gustav Wetter expounds on the magical 'mental' and 'divine' properties animating and informing nonliving matter and dialectic:

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

  Occult Scientism Undergirds Scientific "Revelations"

 In his book, The Abolition of Man (1947), C.S. Lewis observed that the Renaissance had reawakened a magical view of man and the world closely connected with ancient occult sciences and pantheist wisdom traditions.  Along with these arcane nature systems came conceptions of biological and spiritual transformism of one kind of lower thing to another kind of higher thing (i.e. chemicals to life, pond scum to fish; apes to man; man to god), reincarnation, karma and for secular materialists there eventually came philosophically materialist Darwinism, natural selection (a mystical choice-making energy) and determinism (mystical fatalism).

Early on Lewis understood that these two types of pagan and pantheist humanism were merely two sides of the same revival of nature worship. Thus he argued, occult pantheist and materialist humanism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies of naturalism united against the personal God in three Persons who created ex nihilo, His Authoritative Revelation to mankind, Original Sin, man as His spiritual image-bearer, moral law, immutable truth, Christian theism, and Christian-based civilization.
 
Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) reveals two recurring common themes uniting both schools of thought in his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy." The two themes of both schools of thought are monism (naturalism, meaning only nature or cosmos exists) and evolutionary conceptions. At the root of these two themes there is:
 
"...defiance of God, pride unlimited, a yearning for enormous power and the assumption of divine attributes with a view to manipulating and shaping mankind's fate." (p. 227)
 
In other words, in order for modern super men to scientifically engineer a perfected new world order populated by a perfected New Man, two actions must first take place:  the speculative murder of the living Holy Triune God and the sealing off of the way to Heaven.    
 
John Taylor Gatto, former New York State and New York City Teacher of the Year, also tracked the rise of this destructive modern occult pagan intelligentsia together with the potent "interconnected shadow-government" they have created to radically reshape the Western and American consciousness.  In his book, "The Underground History of American Education"  Gatto points to the Fabian socialist utopians as one of the most powerfully effective revolutionary 'change-making' organizations and notes that,
 
"...it would not be too far out of line to call the twentieth century the Fabian century." (Gatto, p. 178)
 
What 'scientific' secular-atheists aspired to be in completely reordering Christian-based Western society and the souls of men according to scientific evolutionary principles, 20th century Fabians actually were.  Much if not most of the madness, chaos and all else that has gone so horribly wrong here in America is attributable to the Fabians.
 
The first Fabians had almost all been lapsed Anglicans from Evangelical homes who became dignitaries in the Church of England:
 
"There was a Christian fringe to the London socialism of the eighties, but this too was Anglican. The Christian Socialists came together in Stewart Headlam's Guild of St. Matthew and the Land Reform Union; and the more respectable Christian Social Union, formed in 1889 -- seeking in Fabian style to permeate the Anglican Church -- soon attracted more than two thousand clerical members. Dissenting clergymen too began to find a place in the Fabian Society and the London Progressives, while Unitarian churches and centres like Stanton Coit's Ethical Church provided a meeting place for believers and idealist agnostics . . . Socialism was for all of them, the new Evangelism." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, Simon & Schuster, 1977, p. 18)

The failure of many Anglican hierarchy to repudiate apostatizing higher Biblical critics and radical freethinkers scandalized faithful, orthodox Evangelicals, whose outraged response was considered reactionary by the scholarly community. In 1861, Benjamin Jowett and six liberal Churchmen published a volume entitled Essays and Reviews, in which they expressed alarm lest "the majority of Churchmen, by holding fast the narrow, fundamental beliefs" in the Genesis account for example,

"...should estrange themselves more and more from contemporary thought."  (The Founders of Psychical Research, Alan Gauld, p. 49)

Jowett himself held that, "Scripture must be interpreted like any other book and some of the essayists were even more radical in their tone."

The portents of apostasy in the Church of England were ominous:

"It seemed to conservative Christians quite appalling that at a time when the impregnable rock of Holy Scripture was being undermined by Darwin and his allies, a group of those whose sacred duty should have been to shore it up again had conspired to hammer their wedges not under it but into it." (Gauld, p. 50)

Gauld records the rapid decline in spiritual aspirations among younger Cambridge men:

"Scepticism based on science flowed into and reinforced the older stream of doubt stemming from historical and ethical considerations. Their joint effect may be traced in the fact that whilst the outstanding Cambridge men of the 1840's -- B. F. Westcott, C. B. Scott, J. Llewellyn Davies, J.E.B. Mayer, Lord Alwyne Compton, E.H, Bickersteth, C. F. Mackenzie, Charles Evans, J. B. Lightfoot, E. W. Benson and F.J.A. Hort -- all took Orders (three of them becoming great clerical headmasters and six bishops), the outstanding Cambridge intellectuals of the 1870's -- the Trinity group centring on Henry Sidgwick and Henry Jackson and including Frederic Myers, G. W. and A. J. Balfour, Walter Leaf, Edmund Gurney, Arthur Verrall, F. W. Maitland, Henry Butcher and George Prothero -- tended towards agnosticism or hesitant Deism."  (Gauld, p. 64)

In this same period a group of young dons from Trinity College, Cambridge, were also turning to psychic research as a substitute for their lost God-created souls and Evangelical faith:

" In February 1882, Podmore took Pease to a meeting at which this group founded the Society for Psychical Research . . . Among those who founded the SPR were Henry Sidgwick, Arthur Balfour -- later a conservative Prime Minister -- and his brother, Gerald."  (The Fabians, p. 18)

 The progenitor of the socialist Fabian Society was the Cambridge University spiritist group, the Ghost Society founded in 1851. The Ghost Society also spawned the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) founded in 1887:
 
"Council Members and Honorary Members of the SPR included a past Prime Minister (William Gladstone)...and a future Prime Minister (Arthur Balfour)...2 bishops; and Tennyson and Ruskin, two of the outstanding literary figures of the day (as well as) Lewis Carroll (and) a surprising number of titled persons." (Gauld, p. 140)

 Having conceptually murdered the God of Revelation, disowned their own souls, and closed the way to Heaven Fabians sought power here below, thus the over-riding interest of the S.P.R. was the spirit realm. In search of power they conducted scientific research into phenomena such as mesmeric trance, telepathy, clairvoyance, apparitions, haunted houses, seances, and all aspects of mediumism, or contact with spirits, to determine the scientific laws of physical spiritualistic phenomena.
 
 By the early 20th century, the materialist Sigmund Freud and heavily demonized Gnostic occultist Carl Jung were SPR Corresponding Members. Both men contributed to the S.P.R. Journal of Proceedings.
 
In an expose of Jung's occult tendencies Richard Noll writes:
 
"With the founding of the Society for Psychical Research in England in 1882, and the copious publications of its investigators, new models of the unconscious mind emerged. The most respected model was that of the 'subliminal self' by Frederick Myers (1843-1901), the 'mytho-poetic' (myth-making) function of which resembles Jung's later conception of a collective unconscious. Jung read widely in the literature of psychical research in medical school and his 1902 dissertation cites the work of Myers and others in this school." (Noll, The Jung Cult, 1994, pp. 31-2)
 
Above all else, revolutionary/evolutionary socialist organizations such as the Fabians were counter-establishment, anti-tradition, sexual liberationists consisting of committed Darwinian Gnostic elitists who were intolerant of the Holy God in three Persons, man as His spiritual image bearer, and every vestige of authority such as immutable Truth, Moral Law, sexual ethics, the traditional family, free market systems, individual liberties, and cumbersome processes of Americas' Constitutional Republic and  wanted to see a new order ruled by a superior caste.
 
Fabianism took its name from Roman general Fabius Cunctator who finally defeated Hannibal by methodically chipping away at his patience and will to win, an idea adopted by  Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci who called for a long, slow, stealthy march through Western and American mind and culture-shaping institutions.   In this way, Christian foundations would be destroyed, minds captured, souls re-engineered and institutions re-ordered.
 
Gatto writes that for Fabianists, Darwin was the 'weird holy man' they adored,
 
"...the man who gave them a theory inspirationally equal to god-theory, around which a new organization of society could be justified." (p. 180)
 
Darwinism is inherently racist because it rejects creation ex nihilo, by extension it also rejects monogenism (all humans descended from Adam and Eve) in favour of polygenism (multiple origins of human races). Thus, to realize the tremendous task that racialist Fabians assigned themselves in scientifically engineering a new order and a New Man said Gatto, we need to reflect on Darwin's shattering books,,
 
'The Origin of Species' (1859) and 'The Descent of Man' (1871), each arguing in its own way that....children are (the evolved product of) their race of origin, some 'favored'...some not" (Gatto, p. 179)
 
Together, Darwin's books issued a license to America's ruling caste to justify racism, moral relativism, the imposition of evolutionary teaching, forced schooling, perverse sex education, population control schemes, and much more, all destructive of America's traditional Christian-based Republic.  Gatto writes that from an evolutionary standpoint, our government controlled schools,
 
"...are the indoctrination phase of a gigantic breeding experiment...Many (children are genetically) a racial menace (while) the rest...thought of as soldiers in genetic combat, the moral equivalent of war....For governments, children could no longer be considered individuals but were regarded as categories, rungs on a biological ladder.  Evolutionary science pronounced the majority useless mouths waiting for nature to dispense with entirely." (Gatto, p. 179)
 
Whereas Christian salvation was formerly held to be a matter between Jesus Christ the Word Incarnate and the individual  and the aim of Christian-based Europe and America had for centuries been fixed on the work of winning liberties for the individual against the oppressive State, the Age of Darwin brought an end to all of this.  By the turn of the century the Fabian program based in "scientifically demonstrable" revelations from the spirit realm and racialist Darwinism was spreading quickly through the best colleges and universities capturing the minds of America's best and brightest issuing in the view that rights, wealth, and privileges are the preserve of the superior caste in control of an omniscient mystical god-State together with salvation as a pantheist conception based in ideas of collectivity.

Secular historians of the nineteenth century agree that the dominant figures in the occult spiritist/socialist movements were mainly lapsed Evangelicals and Anglican clergymen preceded by Renaissance rebels against God.  The onslaught of skepticism, atheism, agnosticism, higher Biblical criticism and dehistorization of the Genesis account together with moral relativism, Darwinism and occult New Age spirituality assaulting the tattered foundations of our Republic were inspired by Protestant/Evangelical heresy together with an unhealthy interest in spiritism. Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie explain this strange anomaly:
 
"The lesson instilled by Evangelical parents had been given a secular form. Evolution or what (Sidney) Webb called Zeitgeist, had taken the place of Providence, yet what Webb described as 'blind social forces...which went on inexorably working out social salvation' did not relieve men of their moral responsibility. Victorian religion had taught that a belief in God's purposes must be accompanied by an effort to discern and advance them. Socialists who substituted a secular religion for the faith of their youth felt the same compulsion." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, p. 115-116)
 
Todays' Green Dragon

By the mid 1880's the Green Dragon---the spirit of madness, heresy, apostasy, moral relativism, occult magic, spiritism, nature worship and evolutionary thinking working within lapsed Evangelicals was already creeping into the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Church.  Today Christendom is dead and the spirit of green-pagan madness is bringing our Republic to ruin while steadily injecting its' abominations into the whole body of the sleeping American Church. Aided and abetted by falsifiers of the Revealed Word who have "penetrated the Church" with a mist of lies resulting in narcissistic self-affirmation, emotional ecstasy, moral relativism, acceptance of evolutionary philosophy and other ancient wisdom traditions along with liberation from sin and hell,

"....Western civilization is daily committing suicide, by aborting itself, ignoring the law of God, and binding itself in Green chains.  What of professing Christians?  It is not clear many believe, as they still did at the American Revolution, that 'the truths of the gospel are the most pure, its motives are the most noble and animating, and its comforts the most supporting to the mind.' Our culture is arguably as enslaved as were the ancient people chained by Gaia and Python. " (Resisting the Green Dragon, James Wanliss, p. 267)

Only Christ can bring liberation.  The Church needs to recover the Biblical persuasion,

".... that the Christian is a pilgrim on the road to a heavenly city, that the social structures of the earthly city do not represent the coming of God's kingdom, and the vision of a society should be to direct man to what is transcendent." (ibid)

Rise of the Global Scientific Dictatorship (Nimrods' New Tower)

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

"Never in the history of the United States have we witnessed crimes committed on the scale and scope of the present day by both private and state elites.....the super-wealthy and their families have as much as $32 trillion (USD) of hidden assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenue! This study excluded such non-financial assets as real estate, precious metals, jewels, yachts, race horses, luxury vehicles and so on. Of the $32 trillion in hidden assets, $23 trillion is held by the super-rich of North America and Europe ."

 The super wealthy mainly consist of an amoral elite consortium of global technocratic corporatists and bankers:
 
"England's leading banks, including Barclay's and a host of others, have been identified as having rigged the LIBOR, or inter-bank lending rate, for years in order to maximize profits. The Bank of New York, JP Morgan, HSBC, Wachovia and Citibank are among scores of banks, which have been charged with laundering drug money and other illicit funds according to investigations from the US Senate Banking Committees. Multi-national corporations receive federal bailout funds and tax exemptions and then, in violation of publicized agreements with the government, relocate plants and jobs in Asia and Mexico ."  (Ascendancy of A Criminal Financial Elite, Global Research)

 In affirmation of  Petras well-researched conclusions, Karen Hudes, a former insider at the World Bank  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)

This modern power elite are the spiritual heirs of Illuminist philosophies from the time of Babylon--- the Ancient Mysteries, Cabala, Egyptian Hermeticism, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnosticism, Luciferian Theosophy, esoteric Free Masonry and occult New Age spirituality.  Many of them are Luciferians said William Still in his classic work, "New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies." Still summarizes Luciferianism as an occult nature religion that teaches that man,
 
"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (Still, p. 27)
 
The goal of Illuminism is worldwide totalitarianism.  During the 20th century Illuminism took the form of scientific socialism and scientific communism.  Today it is Technocracy, a scientific dictatorship calling for the radical transformation of traditional Western economics, government, law, energy, Christianity, and humanity,  which is why it maliciously fosters the atheism, amorality, chaos, blood-letting and revolution necessary for the undermining and overthrow of already existing governments.  (Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, Patrick M. Wood)
 
The world is being actively transformed by an amoral power elite and their minions according to a very narrow economical/political/social philosophy called Technocracy, and it is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world:

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

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

 Technocracy would be imposed most successfully on people incapable of, or uninterested in understanding it.   Such people would fall prey most readily to psychological manipulation and conditioning that makes them accept the most flagrant violations of themselves, their children and reality because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening.

Green Economics

According to Patrick Wood, our existing price-based economic system is being reinvented with new and untested 'green' economics theories such as carbon footprints. Carbon footprints supposedly equal the amount of carbon dioxide allegedly produced by driving your car, running your refrigerator and small appliances, and cutting your grass, for example.  If you use too much, and your carbon footprint is too big, green Technocrats either want the government to punish you or ration the amount of energy you are allowed to receive. The ultimate goal is that the personal energy consumption of every human being should be closely monitored and controlled. 

Steve Milloy, author of the book Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life opens with a brief summary of what the “Green Movement” is really all about:

Green ideologues are bursting with an impatient zeal to begin dictating, through force of law, your mobility, diet, home energy use, the size of your house, how far you can travel, and even … how many children you can have … this is how the greens themselves describe their intentions … Living green is really about some else micro-regulating you ­– downsizing your dreams and plugging each one of us into a brand new social order for which we never bargained. It’s about you living under the green thumb and having the boundaries of your life drawn by others.”  (Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them, Steve Milloy p. 3) 

Green Law 

As the transformation of our political system of Constitutional Rule of Law issues in relativism, it serves as a license for installation of a system of autocratic fiat regulations invented and enforced by unelected and unaccountable green Technocrats.

Green Religion 

America's founding Christian-based worldview and moral system of Judeo-Christian ethics, having been consistently excluded from government, school, and law is being radidly supplanted with a Humanistic nature religion based on Transhumanism, Evolution, Scientism and Relativism.

The process of transformation has for many years been aided and abetted by weak, accommodating and apostate theologians such as the Hindu-pantheist evolutionary scientist Teilhard de Chardin.   Teilhard encouraged Christians to submit to the process of evolution because the promise of this living force is godhood through fusion with the substance of God:

"Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is a magnificent means of feeling more at one with God. In (the old, traditional form of Christianity), the universal domination of Christ could...still be regarded as an extrinsic and superimposed power. In a spiritually converging world, this 'Christic' energy acquires an urgency and intensity of another order altogether." (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p. 590)

Christianity is being transformed into a syncretic green evolutionary nature religion.  The paganization of Christianity is funded by major globalist foundations such as the Carnegie Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Rockefeller Foundation, William and Flora Hewlitt Foundation, David and Lucille Packard Foundation, and Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.  All of these funders are tightly connected to members of the Trilateral Commission.  Over the years, prominent Trilateral membership has included such luminaries as Henry Kissinger, Paul Volker, Robert McNamara, Robert S. Ingersol, and Madeleine K. Albright.

Green URI

The United Nations sponsored United Religions Initiative was founded in 1993 by William Swing, Bishop of the Episcopal Church Diocese of California as an interfaith organization dedicated to binding Christianity and the nature religions of the world into one "whole thing," meaning a universal pagan spirituality touting the idea that all roads lead to heaven. In 2000 the URI co-sponsored the World Millennium Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders held at the United Nations in New York City.   Among the religions represented were Hinduism, Buddhism, Zorostrianism, Confucianism, Ba'hai, Christianity, Indigenous, Judaism, Shinto, Jainism, Sikhism, Islam and Taoism with a heavy representation of mystical eastern religions.  

Ted Turner delivered a key-note address denouncing his childhood Christian faith because,

....it was intolerant because it taught we were the only ones going to heaven." (ibid, p. 122)

The organizations and individual Technocrats who have drawn close to the URI are striking:

"The World Economic Forum, Earth Charter Initiative, Ted Turner, Ford Foundation, Dee Hock (inventor of the VISA credit card and founder and former CEO of VISA International), Maurice Strong (Canadian billionaire and organizer of the U.N.'s 1992 Rio Conference). and Bill Gates among others." (ibid, p. 122)

In "Maurice Strong---The Most Dangerous Man in the World," Tom DeWeese wrote:

"Maurice Strong and his buddies are the driving force behind a new age pagan religion known as Gaia. It is pure nature worship. Strong owns a 63 thousand acre ranch in Colorado called Baca Grande that will never be bothered by the Forest Service or the Army Corp of Engineers. Because Baca Grande is the Mecca for Gaia worshippers and mystics. Here, Strong has built a temple to a Babylonian Sun God. Baca Grande, Strong believes, is the “Vatican City” of the New World Order."

"Maurice Strong is also a director of the Temple of Understanding in New York City, where pagan rituals and earth worship include escorting sheep and cattle to the alter for a blessing. Elephants and camels walk the aisles. A soprano sax is used to create the sound of the wolf moaning its extinction at the hand of man. Here, Vice President Al Gore delivered a “sermon” as worshippers marched to the alter with bowls of compost and worms."

"This wacky scene is the basis for today’s environmental agenda that has grown way beyond a call for clean air and the recycling of plastic bottles and newspapers. In Maurice Strong’s Gaia- driven world – it’s OK for a beaver to build a dam – but not man. It’s OK for a bear to fish in the lake – but not man."

In addition to its agenda to transform Christianity, the far-reaching tentacles of Technocracy include such programs as Sustainable Development, Green Economy, Global Warming/Climate Change, Cap and Trade, Agenda 21, Common Core State Standards, Conservation Easements, Public-Private Partnerships, Smart Growth, Land Use, energy Smart Grid, de-urbanization and de-population.

Technocracy is grounded on a mystical evolutionary pantheist cosmogony that views the earth as a whole living organism (Gaia) consisting of many interdependent parts (smaller whole things).  In this scheme of things, humanity is one "whole thing" without parts, meaning there are no individual persons, thus no individual rights because man is not a person created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons but rather a soulless product of evolution acting on matter over billions of years.
 
Technocrats are modern God-hating Nimrods intent upon building a New Age utopian kingdom on earth marked by pleasure, hedonism, sorcery, occult magic and man as god.  In his book, "Inside the New Age Nightmare," Randal Baer has collected chilling prophecies from New Age Transhumanists:

Ken Carey, a New Age author and channel (receiver of revelations from spirits) uses the biblical language of the sifting of wheat:

"The Great Day of Purification has begun, a short but essential cycle of division that will gather those who promote fear and violence (i.e., faithful, orthodox Christians and Jews) and separate them from this season of the world as chaff is separated from wheat at threshing."   (Capturing the Pagan Mind, Peter Jones, p. 299)

J. Randolph Price through his spirit guide, Asher, reveals that all who deny the divinity of man are of Antichrist and that,

"....nature will soon enter her cleansing cycle during which those of lower vibratory rates will be purified off the planet." (ibid)

Spirit Master controlled Technocratic Transhumanist Robert Muller, prophet of the U.N., father of Common Core Curriculum and former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall all politically incorrect thinkers, especially anti-evolutionists:

"...all those who hold contrary beliefs" to politically correct thought favored for the "next phase of evolution" will "disappear." A hellish fate awaits all who resist political and spiritual globalization, "...those who criticize the UN are anti-evolutionary, blind, self-serving people. Their souls will be parked in a special corral of the universe for having been retarding forces, true aberrations in the evolution and ascent of humanity." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 133)

Technocracy symbolizes the deep religious desires of contemporary God-hating Nimrods and like-minded travelers of the broad way who in their rejection of our Lord Jesus Christ and physical resurrection, seek autonomous self-creation, transcendence and self-redemption, thus are incarnations,

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

They endeavor to become like God but shall instead,

"...drink of the wine of the wrath of God and be tormented with fire and brimstone." (Rev. 14:10) And the devil and his legion who deceived them shall likewise be "thrown into the lake of burning sulfur..." (Rev. 20:10)

Evolutionary Cosmologies: Religious Endeavor to become like God

Throughout the de-Christianized West and America neo-pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary reasoning is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience.  It not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic---and increasingly seminarian---disciplines as well. The West's amoral transnational elite Gnostics, the "chosen" ones, are particularly enamored of evolutionary reasoning:

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

Evolution: what is it?

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

Rene Guenon (1886-1951) concurs.  Guenon was a French metaphysician, writer, and editor who was largely responsible for laying the metaphysical groundwork for the Traditionalist or Perennialist school of thought in the early twentieth century.   In his brilliant critical analysis of Theosophy and Spiritism entitled, "The Spiritist Fallacy"  Guenon investigates and exposes the satanic esotericism working through various modern Western secret societies to pervert true religion---orthodox Christianity in particular--- in order to ultimately turn the world over to Luciferian forces.  

Guenon reveals that in early Theosophist and spiritist circles use of the word 'progress' or 'progressivist' preceded the use of the word 'evolution.' The roots of Theosophy, hence of evolution--the universal life force--stretch back to the ancient Upanishads of India in the East and in the West to ancient Babylon, Egypt and Greece.  In its modern version, progress, transformism, and/or evolution describes the progress (transmigration) of soul made possible by the life force as it inhabits in succession the bodies of different kinds of beings over the course of thousands or even millions and billions of years.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"...of the evolution of the universe.  Its’ essential feature is the emergence of the universe from a state of extremely high temperature and density---the so-called big bang that occurred at least 10,000,000,000 years ago....."(Big Bang Model, The New Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th edition, 2:205, 1992)

The big bang is based on two assumptions: 

"The first is that Einstein's general theory of relativity describes the gravitational attraction of all matter.  The second assumption, called the cosmological principle, states that the observer's point of view of the universe depends neither on the direction in which he looks nor on his location.  This principle applies only to the large scale properties of the universe, but it does imply that the universe has no edge, so that the big bang occurred not at a particular point in space but rather throughout space at the same time.  These two assumptions make it possible to calculate the history of the cosmos after a certain epoch called the Planck time.  Scientists have yet to determine what prevailed before Planck time."    (ibid)

Distinctions are in order here. While the first assumption qualifies as true science, the second assumption, sometimes misnamed the Copernican Principle, does not since it is completely metaphysical, or philosophical.  This is illustrated by Edwin Hubble (1889-1953) who discovered that distant objects appeared to have 'red shifts' approximately proportional to distance from earth. Hubble's speculative interpretation of this discovery presented it as evidence of an expanding universe without a center and without an edge (unbounded) as opposed to Hugh Ross, the popularizer of progressive creationism whose own imaginative assumption pictures everything exploding from a central point in a universe bounded by an edge. (Refuting Compromise: A Biblical and Scientific Refutation of 'Progressive Creationism' as Popularized by Astronomer Hugh Ross, Jonathan Sarfati, Ph.D., F.M., p. 146-147)

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

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

However, not only does the Big Bang---or any other evolutionary cosmology---- not fit into the Bible but it also turns the Creator, Jesus Christ, into a liar, for He said that Adam and Eve were there "from the beginning of the creation" (Mark 10: 6; Gen. 1: 26-27) rather than several billion years after the beginning of the creation as evolutionary speculators hold.  

As the Nicene Creed affirms, Gods Word starts with the creation of absolutely everything visible and invisible ex nihilo in the space of six days.  In his "Literal interpretation of Genesis" Augustine of Hippo notes that when God brought material reality into existence, "then time began its flight." That is, when God created material things (the visible), at the same time He created space and time (the invisible) as their context.  (Creator and Creature, Douglas F. Kelly, Table Talk: Biblical Dichotomies, p. 6) 

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

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

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

Evolutionary Cosmologies: Imaginative Assumptions

George Francis Rayner Ellis, a high-profile evolutionary cosmologist lets the cat out of the bag with his candid confession regarding the important role of imaginative assumptions with respect to the broad range of evolutionary models of the universe such as the Big Bang. Ellis admits:

"...I can construct...a spherically symmetrical universe with earth at its center, and you cannot disprove it based on observations."   "You can only exclude it on philosophical grounds.  In my view there is absolutely nothing wrong in that.   What I want to bring into the open is the fact that we are using philosophical criteria in choosing our models.  A lot of cosmology tries to hide that."  (ibid, Jonathan Sarfati)

In other words, the Authority and Revelation of God, particularly in His six day creation account is rejected a priori not on the grounds of observational science but on the philosophical assumptions of arrogant, defiant speculators whose imaginative evolutionary models are metaphysical projects pretending to be observational science.

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

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

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

The open letter includes statements such as:

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

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

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

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

It’s amazing to see how many Christian leaders have not merely succumbed to the ‘big bang’ idea, but embrace it wholeheartedly.  Carl Wieland comments:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Evolutionary Cosmologies:  Abominations that Desolate

Like witless moths mesmerized by strange fire, from the Renaissance to our own time liberalized Christian theologians situated within the whole body of the Christian Church have been drawn irresistibly to evolution.   Followed by countless unwitting souls, they’ve been flying into an abomination that desolates and ejects them into a downward-spiraling vortex issuing into eternal hell unless they repent and turn back to the Truth, the Way, and the Life (John 14:6).

Evolutionary Cosmologies: The Significance

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

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

They endeavor to become like God but shall instead,

 “…drink of the wine of the wrath of God and be tormented with fire and brimstone.” (Rev. 14:10)  And the devil who deceived them shall likewise be “thrown into the lake of burning sulfur…” (Rev. 20:10)

Falling Stars, Damnable Heresy, and the Spirit of Evolution

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son” (1 John 2:22).

And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit." (Rev. 9:1)

In his Concise Commentary Matthew Henry identifies falling stars as tepid, indecisive, weak or apostate clergy who,

"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."

John identifies antichrists, in this case clergy who serve the devil rather than Christ, sequentially.  First, like Bultmann, Teilhard de Chardin, Robert Funk, Paul Tillich, and John Shelby Spong, they specifically deny the living, personal Holy Trinity in favor of Gnostic pagan, immanent or Eastern pantheist conceptions.   Though God the Father Almighty in three Persons upholds the souls of men and maintains life and creation, His substance is not within nature (space-time dimension) as pantheism maintains, but outside of it.  Sinful men live within nature and are burdened by time and mortality; God is not.   

Second, the specific denial of the Father logically negates Jesus the Christ, the Word who was in the beginning (John 1), was with God, and is God from the creation of all things (1 John 1).  In a pre-incarnate theophany, Jesus is the Angel who 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)  Jesus the Christ is the incarnate Son of God who is the life and light of men, who by His shed blood on the Cross died for the remission of all sins and bestowed the privilege of adoption on all who put their faith in Him. Therefore, to deny the Holy Father is to logically deny the deity of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, hence,

 “…every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist . . . and even now already is it in the world” (1 John 4:3).

According to Peter (2 Peter 2:1), falling stars will work among the faithful, teaching damnable heresies that deny the Lord, cause the fall of men into unbelief, and bring destruction upon themselves:   

The natural parents of modern unbelief turn out to have been the guardians of belief.”  Many thinking people came at last “to realize that it was religion, not science or social change that gave birth to unbelief.  Having made God more and more like man---intellectually, morally, emotionally---the shapers of religion made it feasible to abandon God, to believe simply in man.” (James Turner of the University of Michigan in “American Babylon,” Richard John Neuhaus, p. 95)

Falling Stars and Damnable Heresy

Almost thirty years ago, two well-respected social science scholars, William Sims Bainbridge and Rodney Stark found themselves alarmed by what they saw as a rising tide of irrationalism, superstition and occultism---channeling cults, spirit familiars, necromancers, Wiccans, Satanists, Luciferians, goddess worshippers, 'gay' shamans, Hermetic magicians and other occult madness at every level of society, particularly within the most influential--- Hollywood, academia and the highest corridors of political power.

Like many scientists, they were equally concerned by Christian opposition to naturalistic evolution.  As is common in the science community, they assumed the cause of these social pathologies was somehow due to fundamentalism, their term for authentic Christian theism as opposed to liberalized Christianity.  Yet to their credit, the research they undertook to discover the cause was conducted both scientifically and with great integrity.  What they found was so startling it caused them to re-evaluate their attitude toward authentic Christian theism.  Their findings led them to say:

"It would be a mistake to conclude that fundamentalists oppose all science (when in reality they but oppose) a single theory (that) directly contradicts the bible. But it would be an equally great mistake to conclude that religious liberals and the irreligious possess superior minds of great rationality, to see them as modern personalities who have no need of the supernatural or any propensity to believe unscientific superstitions. On the contrary...they are much more likely to accept the new superstitions. It is the fundamentalists who appear most virtuous according to scientific standards when we examine the cults and pseudo-sciences proliferating in our society today." ("Superstitions, Old and New," The Skeptical Inquirer, Vol. IV, No. 4; summer, 1980)

In more detail they observed that authentic ‘born again’ Christians are far less likely to accept cults and pseudoscientific beliefs while the irreligious and liberalized Christians (i.e., progressive Catholics, Protestant emergent, NAR, word faith, prosperity gospel) are open to unscientific notions.  In fact, these two groups are most disposed toward occultism.

 As Bainbridge and Stark admitted, evolution directly contradicts the Bible, beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.  This means that evolution is the antithesis of the Genesis account. For this reason, discerning Christians refuse to submit to the evolutionary thinking that has swept Western and American society.  Nor do they accept the evolutionary theism brought into the whole body of the Church by weak, tepid, indecisive, or apostate clergy. 

Over eighty years ago, Rev. C. Leopold Clarke wrote that priests who embrace evolution (evolutionary theists) are apostates from the ‘Truth as it is in Jesus.’ (1 John2:2)  Rev. Clarke, a lecturer at a London Bible college, discerned that evolution is the antithesis to the Revelation of God in the Deity of Jesus Christ, thus it is the greatest and most active agent of moral and spiritual disintegration:

It is a battering-ram of unbelief---a sapping and mining operation that intends to blow Religion sky-high.  The one thing which the human mind demands in its conception of God, is that, being Almighty, He works sovereignly and miraculously---and this is the thing with which Evolution dispenses….Already a tremendous effect, on a wide scale has been produced by the impact of this teaching---an effect which can only be likened to the…collapse of foundations…” (Evolution and the Break-Up of Christendom, Philip Bell, creation.com, Nov. 27, 2012)

The faith of the Christian Church and of the average Christian has had, and still has, its foundation as much in the literal and historic meaning of Genesis, the book of beginnings revealed ‘mouth to mouth’ by the Angel to Moses, as in that of the person and deity of Jesus Christ.  But how horrible a travesty of the sacred office of the Christian Ministry to see church leaders more eager to be abreast of the times, than earnestly contending for the Faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3).  It is high time, said Rev. Clarke, that the Church,

 “…. separated herself from the humiliating entanglement attending her desire to be thought up to date…What, after all, have custodians of Divine Revelation to do making terms with speculative Biology, which has….no message of comfort or help to the soul?” (ibid)

The primary tactic employed by priests eager to accommodate themselves and the Church to modern science and evolutionary thinking is predictable.  It is the argument that evolution is entirely compatible with the Bible when we see Genesis, especially the first three chapters, in a non-literal, non-historical context.  This is the argument embraced and advanced by mega-church pastor Timothy J. Keller.  

With a position paper Keller published with the theistic evolutionary organization Bio Logos he joined the ranks of falling stars (Catholic and Protestant priests) stretching back to the Renaissance.  Their slippery-slide into apostasy began when they gave into the temptation to embrace a non-literal, non-historical view of Genesis.  (A response to Timothy Keller’s ‘Creation, Evolution and Christian Laypeople,” Lita Cosner, Sept. 9, 2010, creation.com) 

This is not a heresy unique to modern times.  The early Church Fathers dealt with this damnable heresy as well, counting it among the heretical tendencies of the Origenists.  Fourth-century Fathers such as John Chrysostom, Basil the Great and Ephraim the Syrian, all of whom wrote commentaries on Genesis, specifically warned against treating Genesis as an unhistorical myth or allegory.  John Chrysostom strongly warned against paying heed to these heretics,

 “…let us stop up our hearing against them, and let us believe the Divine Scripture, and following what is written in it, let us strive to preserve in our souls sound dogmas.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 31)

As St. Cyril of Alexandria wrote, higher theological, spiritual meaning is founded upon humble, simple faith in the literal and historic meaning of Genesis and one cannot apprehend rightly the Scriptures without believing in the historical reality of the events and people they describe. (ibid, Seraphim Rose, p. 40)

In the integral worldview teachings of the Fathers, neither the literal nor historical meaning of the Revelations of the pre-incarnate Jesus, the Angel who spoke to Moses, can be regarded as expendable.  There are at least four critically important reasons why.  First, to reduce the Revelation of God to allegory and myth is to contradict and usurp the authority of God, ultimately deny the deity of Jesus Christ; twist, distort, add to and subtract from the entire Bible and finally, to imperil the salvation of believers.

Scenarios commonly proposed by modern Origenists posit a cleverly disguised pantheist/immanent nature deity subject to the space-time dimension and forces of evolution. But as noted previously, it is sinful man who carries the burden of time, not God.  This is a crucial point, for when evolutionary theists add millions and billions of zeros (time) to God they have transferred their own limitations onto Him.  They have ‘limited’ God and made Him over in their own image. This is not only idolatrous but satanic.  

Additionally, evolution inverts creation.  In place of God’s good creation from which men fell there is an evolutionary escalator starting at the bottom with matter, then progressing upward toward life, then up and through the life and death of millions of evolved creatures that preceded humans by millions of years until at long last an apish humanoid emerges into which a deity that is always in a state of becoming (evolving) places a soul. 

Evolution amputates the entire historical precedent from the Gospel and makes Jesus Christ unnecessary as the atheist Frank Zindler enthusiastically points out: 

The most devastating thing that biology did to Christianity was the discovery of biological evolution.  Now that we know that Adam and Eve never were real people the central myth of Christianity is destroyed.  If there never was an Adam and Eve, there never was an original sin.  If there never was an original sin there is no need of salvation.  If there is no need of salvation there is no need of a saviour.  And I submit that puts Jesus…into the ranks of the unemployed.  I think evolution absolutely is the death knell of Christianity.” (“Atheism vs. Christianity,” 1996, Lita Cosner, creation.com, June 13, 2013)

None of this was lost on Darwin’s bulldog, Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1985).  Huxley was thoroughly familiar with the Bible, thus he understood that if Genesis is not the authoritative Word of God, is not historical and literal despite its’ symbolic and poetic elements, then the entirety of Scripture becomes a collection of fairytales resulting in tragic downward spiraling consequences as the Catholic Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation makes clear in part:  

By denying the historical truth of the first chapters of Genesis, theistic evolutionism has fostered a preoccupation with natural causes almost to the exclusion of supernatural ones.  By denying the several supernatural creative acts of God in Genesis, and by downplaying the importance of the supernatural activity of Satan, theistic evolutionists slip into a naturalistic mentality which seeks to explain everything in terms of natural causes.  Once this mentality takes hold, it is easy for men to regard the concept of spiritual warfare as a holdover from the days of primitive superstition.  Diabolical activity is reduced to material or psychological causes.  The devil and his demons come to be seen as irrelevant.  Soon ‘hell’ joins the devil and his demons in the category of antiquated concepts.  And the theistic evolutionist easily makes the fatal mistake of thinking that he has nothing more to fear from the devil and his angels.  According to Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the chief exorcist of Rome, there is a tremendous increase in diabolical activity and influence in the formerly Christian world.  And yet most of the bishops of Europe no longer believe in the existence of evil spirits….To the Fathers of the Church who believed in the truth of Genesis, this would be incredible.  But in view of the almost universal acceptance of theistic evolution, it is hardly surprising.” (The Difference it makes: The Importance of the Traditional Doctrine of Creation, Hugh Owen, kolbecenter.org)

Huxley had ‘zero’ respect for modern Origenists and received enormous pleasure from heaping piles of hot coals and burning contempt upon them, thereby exposing their shallow-reasoning, hypocrisy, timidity, fear of non-acceptance, and unfaithfulness.  With sarcasm dripping from his words he quipped,

I am fairly at a loss to comprehend how any one, for a moment, can doubt that Christian theology must stand or fall with the historical trustworthiness of the Jewish Scriptures. The very conception of the Messiah, or Christ, is inextricably interwoven with Jewish history; the identification of Jesus of Nazareth with that Messiah rests upon the interpretation of passages of the Hebrew Scriptures which have no evidential value unless they possess the historical character assigned to them. If the covenant with Abraham was not made; if circumcision and sacrifices were not ordained by Jahveh; if the “ten words” were not written by God’s hand on the stone tables; if Abraham is more or less a mythical hero, such as Theseus; the story of the Deluge a fiction; that of the Fall a legend; and that of the creation the dream of a seer; if all these definite and detailed narratives of apparently real events have no more value as history than have the stories of the regal period of Rome—what is to be said about the Messianic doctrine, which is so much less clearly enunciated? And what about the authority of the writers of the books of the New Testament, who, on this theory, have not merely accepted flimsy fictions for solid truths, but have built the very foundations of Christian dogma upon legendary quicksands?” (Darwin’s Bulldog---Thomas Huxley, Russell Grigg, creation.com, Oct. 14, 2008)

 Pouring more contempt on them he asked,

When Jesus spoke, as of a matter of fact, that "the Flood came and destroyed them all," did he believe that the Deluge really took place, or not? It seems to me that, as the narrative mentions Noah’s wife, and his sons’ wives, there is good scriptural warranty for the statement that the antediluvians married and were given in marriage; and I should have thought that their eating and drinking might be assumed by the firmest believer in the literal truth of the story. Moreover, I venture to ask what sort of value, as an illustration of God’s methods of dealing with sin, has an account of an event that never happened? If no Flood swept the careless people away, how is the warning of more worth than the cry of “Wolf” when there is no wolf? If Jonah’s three days’ residence in the whale is not an “admitted reality,” how could it “warrant belief” in the “coming resurrection?” … Suppose that a Conservative orator warns his hearers to beware of great political and social changes, lest they end, as in France, in the domination of a Robespierre; what becomes, not only of his argument, but of his veracity, if he, personally, does not believe that Robespierre existed and did the deeds attributed to him?” (ibid)

 Concerning Matthew 19:5:

If divine authority is not here claimed for the twenty-fourth verse of the second chapter of Genesis, what is the value of language? And again, I ask, if one may play fast and loose with the story of the Fall as a “type” or “allegory,” what becomes of the foundation of Pauline theology?” (ibid)

 And concerning Cor. 15:21-22:

If Adam may be held to be no more real a personage than Prometheus, and if the story of the Fall is merely an instructive “type,” comparable to the profound Promethean mythus, what value has Paul’s dialectic?” (ibid)

After much thought, C.S. Lewis concluded that evolution is the central, most radical lie at the center of a vast network of lies within which modern Westerners are entangled while Rev. Clarke identifies the central lie as the Gospel of another Spirit. The fiendish aim of this Spirit is to help men lose God, not find Him, and by contradicting the Divine Redeemer, compromising Priests are serving this Spirit and its’ diabolical purposes.  To contradict the Divine Redeemer is the very essence of unfaithfulness, and that it should be done while reverence is professed,

 “…. is an illustration of the intellectual and moral topsy-turvydom of Modernism…’He whom God hath sent speaketh the Words of God,’ claimed Christ of Himself (John 3:34), and no assumption of error can hold water in the face of that declaration, without blasphemy.”

Evolutionary theists are serving the devil, therefore “no considerations of Christian charity, of tolerance, of policy, can exonerate Christian leaders or Churches who fail to condemn and to sever themselves from compromising, cowardly, shilly-shallying priests”---the falling stars who “challenge the Divine Authority of Jesus Christ.” (ibid)

 The rebuttals, warnings and counsels of the Fathers against listening to Origenists (and their modern evolutionary counterparts) indicates that the spirit of antichrist operating through modern rationalistic criticism of the Revelation of God is not a heresy unique to our times but was inveighed against by early Church Fathers.

From the scholarly writings of the Eastern Orthodox priest, Fr. Seraphim Rose, to the incisive  analysis, rebuttals and warnings of the Catholic Kolbe Center, creation.com, Creation Research Institute, Rev. Clarke, and many other stalwart defenders of the faith once delivered, all are a clear, compelling call to the whole body of the Church to hold fast to the traditional doctrine of creation as it was handed down from the Apostles, for as God spoke and Jesus is the Living Word incarnate, it is incumbent upon the faithful to submit their wills to the Divine Will and Authority of God rather than to the damnable heresy proffered by falling stars eager to embrace naturalistic science and the devil's antithesis--- evolution.  But if it seem evil to you to serve the Lord, 

“…you have your choice: choose this day that which pleases you, whom you would rather serve….but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15

1 Tim. 4:1---Apostasy & the Dragon in the Church

Lutheran pastor, the Reverend Thomas Messer of Peace Lutheran Church in Alma, Michigan, has studied Revelation extensively and after an exhaustive survey of America's idolatrous, morally-relative post-Christian culture and narcissistic postmodern church he wonders if we may already be living in the 'little season' of Satan.  In his commentary on Revelation 9, Rev. Messer observes that during Satan's little season faithful worship of the living Triune God will be all but lost, as is occurring now, and people will worship anything and everything but Him, even an idol called Jesus or Christ in connection with the 'new' occult pagan spirituality moving with great speed and force into the Church.   

The 'new' spirituality overtaking the Church, America and the West is not new at all but is rather the reappearance of ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic grounded in pantheism and spiritism, Greco-Roman nature religions, Eastern mysticism/reincarnation/karma, spiritual and biological evolutionary conceptions, neo-platonism, the Enochian system of magic, Roisicrucianism, tantra, and tarot cards which are seen as the occult keys to the Oroboros (Cosmic Tree of Life).

From the seeker-sensitive (tares-friendly) theology of the emergent church growth movement with its emphasis on earthly bread and spiritual formation to Word Faith magic and the New Apostolic Reformation with its’ Super Apostles who “channel” spirits, all of these movements have a lot in common with the “new” occult spirituality, particularly Hermetic magic.

From the Renaissance to our own time, ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic repackaged for example, as Carl Jung’s demon-derived transpersonal and depth psychology, Mind Science, Alpha Course, Silva Mind Control Method, New Thought, yogic trance, hypnosis, Word Faith, the Force, centering, positive imaging, visualization, various meditation techniques, the Law of Attraction, and the multi-million dollar best-sellers A Course in Miracles and The Secret have been taking America and the West by storm:

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

Hermeticism is the secret science of magic--- the occult way of immortality---invented by Hermes Trismegistus who lived in ancient Egypt around the time of Moses.  In “Biographa Antiqua” the English occultist Frances Barret writes that Hermes “communicated the sum of the Abyss, and divine knowledge to all posterity.”   The word ‘Abyss’ refers to pantheist and/or panentheist conceptions such as the Divine One Substance, World Soul, Brahman, Star-Maker, or with Hermes, the Universal Life personified by the Great Dragon  (Oroboros) from whose body and wings stream light in all directions.

The Hermetic principle speaks of the correlation between the Great Dragon (Oroboros) and the mind of man expressed in the magic formula, “As above, so below.”   As a powerful occult symbol, the Oroboros is the seething power, creative and/or evolutionary impulse or energy of the Great Dragon figuratively depicted as either a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.

The Great Dragon is also symbolized by the great chain of being, cosmic tree of life or with Darwin the tree of life.  In modern Luciferian theosophical thought for example, the Oroboros “above” (i.e., the Force, Cosmic Mind) corresponds to a number of different astral planes and sub-planes comprising the habitations of all supernatural entites.    Thus the Great Dragon’s body with its’ supposed multiple dimensions and life-giving serpent power not only powers the World Spirit  above (Jung’s collective unconscious with its archetypes) but reaches down below into the psyche and/or ‘subconscious,’  ‘personal unconscious,’ and/or Christ-consciousness stirring imagination and conferring psychic powers and divinity (you can be as God).

The foundation of Hermeticism is forbidden knowledge revealed to Hermes during a self-induced trance state resulting in the opening of his mind to contact with the Great Dragon who revealed to Hermes that his own nature is divine.  The Divine Pymander of Hermes Trismegistus relates Hermes mystical encounter with the Great Dragon who called itself Poimandres, the Mind of the Universe that is within Hermes.  (www.themystica.com/)

Upon transforming itself into a glorious being of Light the Dragon proceeded to ‘illuminate’ Hermes with the forbidden knowledge that would eventually find its’ way into Christendom during the Renaissance and eventually into William James theory of the subconscious, Jung’s transpersonal and depth psychology and all of today’s Mind Sciences, occult meditation and Word Faith systems that hold out the promise of personal power by going within:

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

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

Word Faith teacher Kenneth Copeland tells people to visualize any image,

“…that you get down inside you that is so vivid when you close your eyes you see it, it’ll come to pass.  When God came at the Tower of Babel, He said, ‘Anything they can imagine, they can do.” (Inner Image of the Covenant, side 2, Copeland)

Like Copeland, Yonggi Cho similarly teaches that through visualizing and dreaming you will,

“….incubate that which we want God to do for us….If you have not visualized clearly in your heart exactly what you hope foe, it cannot become a reality to you…”  (The Fourth Dimension, Vol. 1, Yonggi Cho, 1979, 9-35, vol. 2, 18-33)

In “The Dust of Death,” British scholar Os Guinness argues that the two most common paths to contact with and even possession by spirits are mind-altering drugs and meditation techniques that place the mind in an altered state of consciousness (i.e., dreaming and visualization) that open the door to powers and principalities:

For those of our generation who stumble on the spirit world accidentally, the two most common paths are LSD and misapplied meditation techniques…Many who take acid regularly or who practice yoga or Zen meditation have found they have opened their minds to blackness and spiritism, seeing themselves as mediums and describing themselves as possessed.” (Guinness, pp. 298, 300)

Lifelong occult practitioner David Conway explains both the occult magic ritual (i.e., Zen Buddhism) and the eventual consequences…. madness, possession and even human sacrifice.   First the worshipper attunes himself (through dreaming and visualization, yogic trance, etc.) to the sacred mystery being performed (i.e., sending thoughts throughout the world and having them bring back whatever the practitioner wants), and then,

“…usually as the climax the presence of a particular deity is invoked (Now) the adept’s slightest gesture can thus extend through all the worlds of being into the depths of the Godhead (i.e., Oroboros), and any words he whispers will echo throughout the length and breadth of the universe…The climax to all magical ritual occurs when the adept draws into himself the astral force he has evoked so as to project it towards a chosen object.  To do this he must surrender his complete being to the astral force…waiting to possess it and this he does by cultivating….madness, akin to the divine frenzy of the Bacchantes….As he feels the force overflowing inside him the adept, while still visualizing the realized magical intention, bids it go forth to fulfill his wishes….For some magicians the dislocation of reason coincides with the moment of sacrifice.  Others perform this sacrifice before proceeding to the climax of the rite, arguing that the vital energy discharged by the victim’s blood assists the possessing entity to appear inside the circle….”(Magic: An Occult Primer, Conway, 1973, pp. 70,78,120, 198; emphasis added)

Now the Spirit manifestly saith, that in the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error, and doctrines of devils.” (1 Tim. 4:1)

As apostasy overspreads the whole body of the Church and occult spiritism invades it, it is no wonder that Rev. Messer believes that what we are witnessing is the great falling away that takes place during Satan's little season when most people will worship the devil,

"There will be a great falling away from the faith in the Church, as foretold by our Lord and His apostles...so that the Church itself will accept evil and present it as good. Not only will people refuse to repent, but, influenced by Satan and his minions, they will promote sin as being salvific.  Murder will not only be condoned, but promoted in society as a good thing (abortion?)." 

Tragically, both unrepentant secular individuals and increasing numbers of sinless Christians are being seduced by an occult spiritual mythology that grew out of the Renaissance and maintains that man is not fallen, that he is ultimately perfectible through a process of evolution and that by “going within” he can attain psychic powers and realize that he is “God.”

The malignant mind holding out this seductive promise is the same fallen angel who tempted Adam and Eve in the garden with the words, “Ye shall be as Gods.” (Gen. 3:5)   Of course what he really means is that all who are seduced by his promise will end up in outer darkness along with the devil and his host.

Sinisterism: The Godless Religion of Nihilism, Lies and Hate

The Christian religion is the religion of our country. From it are derived our prevalent notions of the character of God, the great moral governor of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions.” (William McGuffey, d. May 4, 1873, professor at the University of Virginia, president of Ohio University, and author of McGuffey’s Readers; http://www.earstohear.net/Separation/warnings.html)

Andre Comte-Sponville, one of France's preeminent atheist philosophers agrees.  In his New York Times bestseller, "The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality," Sponville observes that even though Western and American civilization has become nonreligious it is nevertheless profoundly rooted in transcendent Biblical morality and traditions.   That overt and implied atheism has all but supplanted Biblical beliefs pleases yet simultaneously frightens Sponville as he clearly sees that if Western civilization entirely ceases to be Christian it will fall into something like a refined nihilism.  And if we believe that nothing remains,

"....we might as well throw in the towel at once.   We would have nothing left to oppose to either fanaticism from without or to nihilism from within---and, contrary to what many people seem to think, nihilism is the primary danger.  We would belong to a dead civilization, or at least a dying one....Wealth has never sufficed to make a civilization, poverty, even less so.  Civilizations require culture, imagination, enthusiasm and creativity, and none of these things come without courage, work and effort."    Without these necessities, "Good night...the Western world has decided to replace faith with somnolence." (pp. 28-29)

Sponville admits that he had believed in the supernatural Triune God and been raised a Christian.  Up till around the age of eighteen his faith was powerful until he embraced Darwinism and fell away, and this falling away said Sponville, was liberating, because for the liberated autonomous 'self' whose life no longer has any ultimate meaning or purpose there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not live in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves.

But the lies and perverse license, the nihilism Sponville rejoices in becomes an unbearable source of horror and dread when reproduced in millions of souls.  Sponville is right to fear the spread of nihilism, for when multiplied by millions it means there is no longer an ultimate, transcendent source of unchanging truth and moral law higher than and independent of man, and as Sponville knows, therefore dreads, the lie is the father of violence:

"(The lie) is the word, act, sign of cunning or silence which makes use of wiles to deceive (all who seek) truth....the attitude of the liar, who full of subtlety, audacity and at times cruel cynicism, misleads his neighbor into the quick sands of falsity.  The use of the lie reveals the liar as a person of evil intentions.  He who tells lies as a way of getting ahead lacks a love of truth (he or she is) a self-centered dissimulator, cunningly manipulating his fellowmen for his own evil purposes."   (The Roots of Violence, Rev. Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., p.29)

Nihilism is the satanically inverted philosophy of violence and license of America’s president, his cabinet and the amoral progressive ruling class of which they are members.  It is also the philosophy of the Marquis de Sade, Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx and the Sophist Callicles in Plato’s ‘Georgias’ who declares:

The fact is this: luxury and licentiousness and liberty, if they have the support of force, are virtue and happiness and the rest of these embellishments-—the unnatural covenants of mankind-—are all mere stuff and nonsense.” (Making Gay Okay, Reilly, pp. 31-32)

In other words, with a consensus of lies backed by the threat of violence, the Bible,  the Christian Church, virtue, truth, marriage, gender, private property, your children, your humanity, your business, and the Constitution become whatever agents of violence and the mobs in back of them want them to be or not to be from one moment to the next.

What nihilism has already led to in England, said Nate Steuer of JeremiahCry Ministries, are buildings that once served as churches that are now museums, stores and even nightclubs, a strong belief in evolution and a strong homosexual-rights movement:

 "They don't want to hear the gospel. The gospel is pressed down," said Steuer, and the homosexual-rights movement is so rooted in England that Christians are afraid to go "into the streets and preach," fearing what the LBGT community will do."  ("Fate of Christianity in UK not too far from U.S., warns evangelist," Chris Woodward, OneNewsNow.com, July 8, 2014) 

Evolutionary scientism is a form of nihilism that has amply demonstrated itself as a virulently anti-human, pathologically destructive, demonically murderous worldview. In just the first eighty-seven years of the twentieth century, violent spirits who love evil and devouring words and breathe out slaughter and death brutally exterminated between 100-170 million un-evolved 'subhuman' men, women, and children in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.

In the Soviet Union, the Triune God-and-human hating nihilist of violence, Vladimir Lenin, exulted that,

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

In other words, with the 'death' of the Triune God uninhibited violence against millions of people is allowable because they are no longer the image-bearers of the Triune God but rather products of evolution on a par with slime, weeds, slugs and rocks.  Empowered by evolutionism, Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death. He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species."

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

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

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

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

As in England, evolutionary scientism has replaced the Triune God, thus with the total animalization of 'other' millions of unborn humans have been aborted and late-term unborn babies brutally dismembered.  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 nihilists now demand for late-term abortions and will be legalized in New York by the abortion-expanding Women’s Equality Act, is the murder of babies,

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

Then there is Wisconsin-based abortionist Dennis Christensen and his partner Bernard Smith who have performed 85,000 to 95,000 abortions in a 40 year period:

So I see it as a calling, I guess,” Christensen said. “But I’ve been called, I’ve served and now I’d like to call someone else.”  (Abortionist Who’s Killed 95,000 Babies in Abortions: “I See It as a Calling”  Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com, 7/7/14)

Something "called him" to murder 95,000 babies, but it wasn't the Triune God.

When for millions of nihilists the Triune God does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose with neither hope of an afterlife nor any accountability to their Maker for their actions here in this world, then men no longer have reason and purpose for being good, thus are free to be evil.   They are free to invoke meaningless law and perverted justice to restrain freedom, to dismember babies, to force disordered appetites upon men, women, and children; to accuse the good man of evil, to enslave other people, to deprive them of life-sustaining electricity, gas, and water; to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others and to throw our borders open to floods of illegals and rapists, drug-lords, pedophiles, murderers and other sinister individuals.

Nihilism means that sinisterists are free to lie so as to "normalize" whatever wicked schemes they desire, such as global change, redistributive justice, common core, 'gay' equality and marriage.

A society of nihilists is a welcome mat to evil human predators of every stripe from drug lords, Satanists, ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood to flesh-peddlers and the world's criminal elites: the occult Luciferian New World Order super-wealthy criminal consortium and their merciless leftwing and rightwing allies.   This cohort of sinister nihilists believe in nothing, know only hate, contempt, violence, greed and egotism and share a foundational hatred of the Triune God, faithful Christians and Jews and  traditional Christian grounded Western and American civilization.

In the impeccably documented, scholarly book, "Sinisterism: Secular Religion of the Lie," Bruce Walker describes the super-wealthy consortium and their like-minded allies as Sinisterists, making political labels like Far Right (Nazis/Fascists), Far Left (Bolsheviks, Marxists, Communists) and even like-minded Radical Muslims the same thing.

What unites Sinisterists are their hatreds:

"They hate Christians...Jews...America (and) Israel.  They hate truth.  They hate the very idea of truth.  They hate the idea of humans as unique and special in the universe.  They hate the idea of a great moral purpose unfolding in our lives.  Sinisterism is a bundle of connected hatreds.  For the sake of their hatreds, Sinisterists lust for power." (preface)

Because Sinisterists "hate the idea of humans as unique and special in the universe," they have 'killed' the Triune God and forced nihilistic Darwinian materialism on us because it reduces mankind to nothing.  They invent words and sound-bite phrases such as heterosexist, homophobe, global warming/cooling/change and nonexistent categories of mankind such as "racial species" that imprison thought.   Following are some other examples:

1. Multiculturalism: the insidious destruction of America's traditional culture by way of elevating pagan and pantheist cultures and belief systems in the name of politically correct tolerance and inclusion.

2.'Gay rights/'gay' marriage, perverse sex education: rebellion against and negation of the two created sexes and the idea of normal.

3. Political correctness, speech codes, sensitivity training, and hate crime laws:  psychic-cages for the minds of traditional-values Americans.

4. Perverse sex education: As was the case in the Soviet Union, its ultimate purpose is the subversion and perversion of our youth---the awakening of the Devil, as Karl Marx's comrade Bakunin said.

5 Critical theory: the mindless vomiting out of destructive criticism upon everything good, true, excellent, normal, and traditional.

6. Global change, Agenda 21, redistributive justice: the evisceration of our standard of living and individual liberties in order to 'save the planet' — in other words, impoverishment, death and slavery on behalf of Gaia.

7. Sustainability: Extreme population control calling for the annihilation of billions of people tied to theft of private property to achieve spiritual communism.

8. Religious Pluralism: the erasure of faithful Judaism, Christian theism and America's founding Christian-based worldview by way of elevating Wicca, animism, Islam, New Age occult spirituality, Gnostic paganism, Buddhism,  shamanism, goddess worship, Luciferian Masonry and atheism in the name of politically correct tolerance and inclusion.

In order to destroy rational thinking, Sinisterists use words and phrases (i.e., change, "make love not war," "we are Trayvon") to create images rather than ideas and then concentrate on endless repetition of the same word-pictures,

"...to create an hypnotic effect to defend an otherwise hopeless case.  Sinisterists use the same words over and over again."   (p.12)

The black heart of Sinisterism is the worship of lies, particularly the Big Lie of evolution.   'Elite' transnational Robert Muller, father of Common Core Curriculum, former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall all politically incorrect thinkers, especially anti-evolutionists:

"...all those who hold contrary beliefs" to politically correct thought favored for the "next  phase of evolution" will "disappear."  A hellish fate awaits all who resist political and spiritual globalization, "..those who criticize the UN are anti-evolutionary, blind, self-serving people.  Their souls will be parked in a special corral of the universe for having been retarding forces, true aberrations in the evolution and ascent of humanity."  (False  Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 133)

With full malice aforethought, sinisterists have dumbed-down Westerners and Americans by infiltrating our education institutions and even our seminaries with nihilist philosophies, evolutionary scientism, perverse sex education, perverse 'higher Biblical criticism,' critical theory, multiculturalism and revised history . 

As evolution and the relativity of truth are fatal doctrines-- types of nihilism that deny objective truth and reality--- they result in the rapid disintegration of critical thinking, faith in God, respect and manners resulting in a perversely inverted society of narcissistic despots, thugs, and bizarre libidinous individuals at every level of government and society who know how they feel and what they are entitled to but can't think, can't spell, and don't know right from wrong.

It should be obvious by now, said Walker, that the relations of people in American and Western society are growing coarser,

".....more dishonest....shallower....lonelier...more desperate for the narcotics of power, applause and fear as we perceive ourselves moving closer to the status of gods and goddesses.  If we choose, as individuals, that idolatry, then we are doomed.  All the dystopian nightmares of Orwell, Bradbury, Huxley and others will become real all too soon....we will (either) surrender to thugs governing enslaved nations or embittered terrorists." (p. 252)

Today we are living in the days of nihilism.  Ecstatic with the voluptuous delight of destruction which rolls humans into satanic depths nihilists keep pushing society to the brink of social chaos and suicide:

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) 

Nihilism is lawlessness, idolatry, violence, perversion, fear, terrors of mind, horrors of conscience and loss of true freedom since the despair of nihilism ends in slavery to addictive vices (man's dark side), death, and damnation.

In his poem "The Second Coming," Yeats reveals the murderous delight of de Sade's, Nietzsche's, Marx's, and Callicles modern offspring:

"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned

The best lack all conviction, while the worst are

Full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;

Surely the Second Coming is at hand."

If Western and American nihilists continue to set the personal Triune God aside in favor of "self," and what they really do know are lies and empty, shallow, meaningless evil, then a tyranny of evil will come upon us swiftly and terribly.  But there is another path before us.   The path of repentance, truth, decency and God's Divine Truth.  His eternally unchanging Truth will set us free. We should choose the path of Truth and goodness:

"On that choice hangs the fate of humanity. People will either embrace goodness or deny that goodness can exist and commit moral suicide (and) worship The Lie."   (p. 252)

People who choose the way of true truth will find the goodness of God.  As they follow the Way of Truth they will stumble sometimes, journey down blind alleys sometimes, be on the wrong side of causes sometimes,

"...but will never lose hope or the help of other normal people and the Blessed Creator of the Universe." (p. 233)

One path leads up toward truth, light, beauty, goodness, courage, hope, peace and eternal physical life in a physical Paradise.   The other leads ever downward into the despair of nihilism, the darkness of lies, the stench of soul-destroying hate, and the terror of nothingness finally issuing into an eternity in outer darkness.

Romans 1: 21-22: America's 'Scientifically Enlightened' Lost Souls

According to Church Father Origen, the author of the Shepherd of Hermas (an early record of visions and revelations) is the same Hermas mentioned in Romans 16:14 who lived in Rome during the lifetime of Clement I.    In Chapter II of his second vision, Hermas is told that "...happy are they who endure the great tribulation that is coming on, and happy they who shall not deny their own life:"

"For the Lord hath sworn by His Son, that those who denied their Lord have abandoned their life in despair, for even now these are to deny Him in the days that are coming. To those who denied in earlier times, God became gracious, on account of His exceeding tender mercy." (Second Vision, Chapter II)

From the Renaissance to our own day Westerners have been rebelling against their Lord---the Divine Source of their own lives-- in a vain and utterly suicidal rebellion that is as yet coming to fullness during this time of increasing tribulation.  

The nature of the rebellion is the antithesis of the true Christian faith.  Whereas Christian faith is joy, patience, love, truth, humbleness, peace, perseverance, submission in all things to the Will of God, and blessed eternal life, the rebellion is full of stubborn pride, skepticism, lies, sophistry, death wishing, dark thoughts of murder and suicide, revulsion, burning envy, covetousness, impatience, seething hatred, jealousy, negation, blasphemy, ghastly nightmarish visions and hellish apocalyptic scenarios depicting collapsing cities amid fire and brimstone and monstrous blood-thirsty aliens, walking dead people, zombies, vampires and other hellish beings signifying eternity in Hell:

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

When Marx, in his rebellion against his Lord, found himself compelled to reject the living, personal Divine Source of his own life because of his utterly foolish desire to establish that "man owes his existence (only) to man" he willfully and stupidly chose an eternity in hell rather than eternal life. (Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, pp. 113-114)

Romans 1:21-22 tells us how foolish rebels against God ended up in this vain and utterly despairing predicament:

"...because, having known God they did not glorify Him as God, nor gave thanks, but were made vain in their reasonings, and their unintelligent heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools..."

Their reasoning, or cognitive thought and comprehension processes became vain and stupid because in deliberately turning away from the living God Who is the only source of life and mind, they have accepted a position that is intellectually foolish and unlivable with regard to the universe, the origin of conscious life, what man is and what his purpose is.   The rebels are left with a position that can neither account for the origin of conscious life, meaning that they cannot account for their own "self" (spirit/soul) nor provide them with any meaning and purpose:

"For two hundred years we had sawed and sawed and sawed at the branch we were sitting on.  And in the end, much more suddenly than anyone had foreseen, our efforts were rewarded, and down we came.  But unfortunately there had been a little mistake: The thing at the bottom was not a bed of roses after all; it was a cesspool full of barbed wire...It appears that amputation of the soul isn't just a simple surgical job....The wound has a tendency to go septic." (George Orwell, Notes on the Way, 1940, from "The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, p. 3)

Professing themselves enlightened, scientific, cutting edge,  and oh so smart, evolutionary materialists, whether secular or occult New Age pantheist, are fools.....miserable nihilists for whom there is neither source for "self" nor purpose for life.  

Having questioned the existence of the psyche (self, soul) Cobain sought alleviation of his despair through secular psychotherapy.   But psychotherapy failed Cobain and he finally found escape from his misery by blowing his brains out.  Suicide is a logical 'virtue' for a nihilist who believes he has no "self" nor anything out there to give meaning and significance to anything here, including music. 

As the essence of every human being is soul/spirit, when nihilists deny this reality, as they must, it becomes very difficult if not impossible for them to make sense of music because music, like morality, is a matter of the soul:

"Those who think that the universe is only material substance and the soul is an illusion find it hard to explain music," said Mangalwadi.  "They have to assume that that music evolved from animals, but none of our alleged evolutionary cousins make music. (Some birds do 'sing,' but no one has proposed that we, or our music, evolved from them)." (ibid, p. 7)

Cobain's nihilist "music" appealed to America's burgeoning population of nihilists because as Mangalwadi points out, it was a full-throttled disharmony of rage,

"...anguish, hatred, despair, meaninglessness, and obscenity.   His song titles included "I Hate Myself, I Want to Die" and "Rape Me." (ibid, p. 9)

Most of what Cobain sang is undecipherable, and many of his lyrics that can be deciphered are without meaning, and  whether he knew it or not, said Mangalwadi, his lyrics were Zen koans,

"...counter-rational sayings such as 'what is the sound of one hand clapping?'  Such words do not make sense because (in the absence of Revelation) reality itself makes no sense.  Words are merely mantras---sounds without sense---to be chanted or shouted." (pp. 9-10)

 For fifteen hundred years, Christendom and then later Protestant America, had followed St. Augustine (AD 354-430) in affirming that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent Triune God (Gen. 1:27) then it logically follows that each person is a trinity of being — of soul, spirit, and body,

 "The essence of the human is not the body, but the soul.  It is the soul alone that God made in his own image and the soul that he loves....For the sake of the soul...the Son of God came into the world...." (Incomplete Work on Matthew, Homily 25, Ancient Christian Devotional, Oden and Crosby, p. 153)

The Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word become Flesh, the Divine Source of life, Jesus Christ the Physician came to heal the spiritually sick.   But whoever rejects the Physician rejects his own soul, hence destroys him or herself:

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

"The Lord hath sworn by His Son, that those who denied their Lord have abandoned their life in despair"....Cobain committed suicide because without our Lord there is only the despair of Nothingness---no 'self,' no purpose, and no meaning as the ultimate reality. 

Throughout America and the West, the almost total takeover of our institutions by nihilists means that, over time, these institutions become cemeteries of the walking dead.  Already, whole sections of America have become burned over dead zones of lost souls.

While it grieves us to see this growing population of lost, despairing souls, we must not see in their nihilistic despair our own eternity: "happy are they who shall not deny their own life."  Nor should we be tempted into believing that we can reason with these spiritually dead, hardened souls as they hold truth in unrighteousness and cannot be reasoned with, and furthermore, will demand that we submit to their own willfully chosen fate.

The Postmodern 'New Church:' a trendy mausoleum for the children of unbelief

In his book, "The Truth War," John MacArthur writes that all 'true' truth, as opposed to man's rationalizations and feelings passed off as truth, begins with what is true about the living, supernatural God.  Truth is what His will approves, what His holiness entails, what His mind knows.  Truth then is determined and properly explained by the being of God, thus by extension,

"A biblical perspective of truth also necessarily entails the recognition that ultimate truth is an objective reality.  Truth exists outside of us and remains the same regardless of how we may perceive it.  Truth by definition is as fixed and constant as God is immutable." (MacArthur, p. xx)

God has revealed Himself and His truth with clarity.  Even apart from the explicit revelations of the Bible beginning with the Genesis account of creation, God has made sufficiently clear some of the principle elements of spiritual truth to all people through creation and conscience (Romans 1:19-20, 2:14-16) so as to leave the entire human race without excuse.(Roman's 1:20)

This being the case, all those who are condemned in the final judgment said MacArthur,

"...will be held responsible for rejecting whatever truth was available to them....a just and righteous God holds unbelievers and believers alike responsible for obedience to His revelation is irrefutable proof that He has made the truth sufficiently clear for us.  To claim that the Bible is not sufficiently clear is to assault God's own wisdom and integrity." (pp. xxi-xxii)

Yet today tens of thousands of people who call themselves Christians claim to follow Jesus but reject His truth, claiming instead that personal feelings and experience are more important then revealed truth.  These Christians are adherents of today's contemporary or postmodern 'new way of doing church.' 

in 'Postmodern Youth Ministry,' Tony Jones, a leading contemporary and/or emergent pastor says:

"Stop looking for some objective truth that is available when we delve into the text of the Bible." (Emerging Church/New Spirituality: Part 3 Postmodernism, ImmanuelCommunity.org.uk)

In agreement, Brian McLaren says:

"Arguments that pit absolutism versus relativism, and objectivism versus subjectivism, prove meaningless or absurd to Postmodern people." (ibid)

Postmodernism is a reaction against the 'modern' age of Enlightenment which began around the beginning of the 18th century and lasted until about 50 years ago.  The Enlightenment was a philosophical, intellectual and cultural revolution that elevated the mind of man--his reason, logic, and criticism over the mind of God together with superiority of empirical scientific thought  over doctrine and creeds, which were dismissed as blind faith and superstition.

Modernism represented the pursuit of absolutism (i.e. Darwin's absolute law of natural selection), the empirical method as the only reliable way to determine truth, and rationalism (mind of man over God).

The Modern mind dismissed the idea of the supernatural, miracles, and even man's soul and sought scientific and rationalistic explanations for everything.  According to John MacArthur:

"Those presuppositions gave birth to Darwinism, which in turn spawned a string of humanistic ideas and worldviews.  Most prominent among them were several atheistic, rationalistic, Utopian philosophies - including Marxism, fascism, socialism, communism and theological liberalism." (p. 9)

Overconfident rationalism, human conceit, arrogance, men usurping the throne of God---all of this characterized the Modern era which finally issued in organized hatred of God---a universal totalitarian atheism that unleashed catastrophic destruction and rivers of human blood during the 20th century.

As noted previously, postmodernism is a reaction against the modernist mindset characterized by arrogance, inflexibility, omniscient reason, the need to be right at any cost coupled with the burning desire to be in control which brought the world to the brink of disaster.  Postmodernism therefore reflects a loss of confidence in the power of human reason and scientific inquiry to understand the nature of true reality.  

With the rise of postmodernism our view of man, of what we can and cannot know, of reality and the world changed, said business management guru Peter Drucker in the introduction to his 1957 book ‘Landmarks of Tomorrow.’ At some unmarked point during the last twenty years we have moved out of the Modern Age,

" ....and into a new, as yet nameless era.  Our view of the world changed…. There is a new spiritual centre to human existence." (ibid, ImmanuelCommunity.org.uk)

With Pilate, postmodern thinkers derisively ask, "What is truth?" (John 18:37-38) and claim therefore that we can't be certain about anything, including God's self-revelation through the scriptures.  In his book, "A Heretic's Guide to Eternity," Spencer Burke, expresses this uncertainty:

"I’m not sure I believe in God exclusively as a person any more." (ibid)

Postmodern thinker Peter Drucker played a key role in the development of the contemporary 'new way of doing church' formulated by Bill Hybels, Rick Warren and countless other contempory 'new church' gurus and slavishly cloned by thousands upon thousands of infatuated pastors.   In "Peter Drucker's Mega-Church Legacy" Herescope (Discernment Research Group) reports:

"One perhaps unexpected example of Druckerism is the modern mega-church movement. He suggested to evangelical pastors that they create a more customer-friendly environment (hold back on the overt religious symbolism and provide plenty of facilities). Bill Hybels, the pastor of the 17,000-strong Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois, has a quotation from Mr Drucker hanging outside his office: 'What is our business? Who is our customer? What does the customer consider value?'" ("Trusting the teacher in the grey-flannel suit" The Economist, Nov 17th 2005, Herescope, November 18, 2005)

The Drucker-style contemporary church model de-emphasizes immutable truth, moral absolutes, Original Sin, hell, confession, repentance, vertical spiritual growth, apologetics, and traditional hymns and proposes instead a horizontal approach tailored for unbelievers and their felt-needs rather than for the spiritually-mature.   This way of thinking is in keeping with the belief of the postmodern Church that theology must be constructed from human experience, needs, desires, and passions and not from divine revelation.  For postmodern pastors there is no supernatural authority that determines truth, moral absolutes, the shape of theological vision, or doctrine.  They hold in contempt statements of faith, appeals to transcendent Authority, definition, rules and doctrinal boundaries and reject any concept of certain, objective, and universal knowledge as well as all who profess them.  These people, the most spiritually mature, are most generally disparaged, marginalized and ridiculed as 'traditionalists.'

In this light it makes sense that Hybels solution was to poll unbelievers and tailor Sunday morning service to their expressed needs. What unbelievers want is to feel unthreatened as well as entertained in a creative, humorous, culturally relevant atmosphere,

" ... a place designed for [the unbeliever]. We have put a lot of time and thought into what non-churched people want from a Sunday morning service. And we have concluded that they basically want four things: (1) anonymity; (2) truth presented at an introductory level; (3) time to 'make a decision'; and (4) excellence in programming, creativity, humor, contemporary [worship], relevancy, etc." ( Hybels' 1990 message: "Who We Are at Willow Creek.")

Thousands of postmodern people attend Willow Creek's "seeker sensitive services" where they can dress down and dine on earthly bread without guilt or shame. There is no room for heavenly bread in Willow Creek-- no uncomfortable sermons against sin, nothing about judgment, and no call for repentance.

Instead 'worshippers' are lavishly entertained by a 20-piece "Christian" rock band with laser lights and an elaborate sound system, energizing pop-rock singers, multi-media displays, plays, stories and thin gruel punctuated by jokes geared to those who are investigating Christianity. To further entice the seeker-sensitive crowd there are darts, basketball, and coloring for the youngsters, a massive food court and a fully-out-fitted exercise gym. (Bill Hybels, Biblical Discernment Ministries)

As is the case with all postmodern 'new church' formulas, the Hybels model weaves the reigning secular system of the world with the sacred, the dark with light, thereby compromising the Revealed Word and rejecting the proposition that truth "by definition is as fixed and constant as God is immutable." (MacArthur, p. xx)

As its focus is on supplying unbelievers with earthly bread, there is no heavenly bread, hence no possibility of renewing the spirit of the mind (Ephesians 4:23-24):

"The spirit is the human spirit, having its seat in and directing the mind...The renewal takes place, not in the mind, but in the spirit of it. "The change is not in mind psychologically, either in its essence or in its operation; and neither is it in the mind as if it were a superficial change of opinion either on points of doctrine or practice: but it is in the spirit of the mind; in that which gives mind both its bent and its materials of thought. It is not simply in the spirit as if it lay there in dim and mystic quietude; but it is in the spirit of the mind; in the power which, when changed itself, radically alters the entire sphere and business of the inner mechanism" (Vincent's Word Studies).

The spirit of the mind that has not been renewed walks according,

"...to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of this air, of the spirit that now worketh on the children of unbelief." Ephesians 2:2

In the final analysis, the postmodern church is not a place of life but of death.  It is a trendy, culturally relevant mausoleum for the children of unbelief.

You can be as God: Invitation of the Emerging Cosmic Christ

In the “The Christ of the New Age Movement," Ron Rhodes notes that apostate New Age theologian David Spangler defines Christ as a cosmic principle:

"Any old Christ will not do, not if we need to show that we have something better than the mainstream Christian traditions. It must be a cosmic Christ, a universal Christ, a New Age Christ." The Christ is not so much a religious figure, "but rather a cosmic principle, a spiritual presence whose quality infuses and appears in various ways in all the religions and philosophies that uplift humanity and seek unity with spirit." (Ron Rhodes, “The Christ of the New Age Movement: Part One in a Two-Part Series on New Age Christology," cited in "A Quantum Cosmic Christ," Herescope Blogspot, June 2012)

The cosmic Christ is a rephrasing of Teilhard's Omega and is as well the divine One Substance of Leonard Sweet's quantum spirituality:

"Quantum spirituality bonds us to all creation as well as to other members of the human family…. This entails a radical doctrine of embodiment of God in the very substance of creation…. But a spirituality that is not in some way entheistic (whether pan- or trans-), that does not extend to the spirit-matter of the cosmos, is not Christian." (ibid, Leonard Sweet, Quantum Spirituality: A Postmodern Apologetic ")

By any name, Postmodern Christianity, Quantum Spirituality or Teilhard's New Religion, it is a synthesis of heresies whose primary doctrine is evolution and Bishop Fulton J. Sheen was right on target when he pointed to the influence of the infamous heretic Teilhard de Chardin:

"As one looks at the various trends in our day, one sees that Teilhard’s [de Chardin] conception of spirituality is in the forefront. He knew that he had to pass through many hazards, but he was directed principally to the cosmic world. Others have been directed to the human world. This does not mean to say that Teilhard limited himself to anthropology and physics. His fundamental orientation was “to attain heaven through the fulfillment of earth. Christify matter.” (ibid, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, Footprints In A Darkened Forest, p. 73)

In his book, "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy," the eminent Catholic scholar and philosopher Thomas Molnar explains that evolution, whether Darwinian or a spiritual conception such as Teilhard's idea, serves as an imaginary mechanism of perfection for both man and the One Substance, an eternally existing or self-created substance which may for example, be a Universal Consciousness, Omega Point, or Divine Mind (mystical pantheism) or perhaps a spiritless physical substance (Greek Atomism, scientific materialism, Marx's dialectical matter).  Either way:

"Through evolution the world substance becomes progressively pure, homogenous and perfect until the terminal point is reached..."  (p.235)  

At that point, there is either a perfected non-spiritual substance  or a perfectly spiritualized substance, the ultimate goal of Teilhard's alchemical great work.  

Whether the substance is physical or spiritualized, all conceptions of the One Substance are expressions of monism.

Monism is held in common by materialism, mystical pantheism, and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems from Herme's esoteric magic formula, 'as above, so below,' to Buddhism,  Greek Epicureanism, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnosticism to Quantum Spirituality, Postmodern 'Christianity' and  New Age Cosmic Humanism.

Monism teaches that all things, including mankind, are merely diverse parts of the one-substance.  God is acceptable to this monistic frame of mind only if He is not something outside of and superior to the one-substance but rather immanent or one with it.  In other words, the substance of God must be dispersed throughout the whole substance, and since this divine substance permeates everything, including mankind, it becomes possible to evolve a God out of man.

The powerfully seductive Big Lie, "you can be as God," underlies both mystical pantheist New Age Cosmic Humanism and its' materialist counterpart, Secular Humanism.   This thought is expressed openly in the teachings of Swami Vivekananda , Dr. Beverly Galyean (leading exponent of occult New Age confluent education),  David Spangler and Emergent church leader Leonard Sweet:

"The Buddhists and the Jains do not depend on God; but the whole force of their religion is directed to the great central truth in every religion: to evolve a God out of man."  (Inspired Talks, Ramakrishna Vivekananda Center, 1958, p. 218)

"Once we begin to see that we are all God, that we have the attributes of God, then, I think the whole purpose of human life is to reown the Godlikeness within us...So my whole view is very much based on that idea."   (Galyean quoted by Francis Adeney, Educators Look East, Radix 12, No. 3, Nov-Dec. 1980, p. 21)

"As the energies of the Cosmic Christ become increasingly manifest within the etheric life of Earth, many individuals will begin to respond with the realization that the Christ dwells within them.."  ( “Wonderful Deception, Warren Smith, p. 122, citing David Spangler, The Revelation: Birth of a New Age, p. 177)

"The power of small groups is in their ability to develop the discipline to get people "in-phase" with the Christ consciousness and connected with one another." (Leonard Sweet, cited in "A Quantum Cosmic Christ," Herescope Blogspot, June 2012)

This same idea expressed in secular terms  such as self-realization and self-actualization (a term coined by Abraham Maslow), is a concept that underlies many contemporary psychotherapies.

In carefully couched terms, the  "Humanist Manifesto" (1973) also declares autonomous man's godhood:

"We affirm that moral values derive their source from human experience.  Ethics is autonomous and situational...life has meaning because we create and develop our futures."

The conclusion of both mystical pantheist Cosmic Spirituality and so-called 'scientific' Secular Humanism is the same: human beings can be as God and invent their own "ten commandments."

Another key point at which Cosmic and Secular Humanism intersect  is evolution.    Secular Humanism adopted the Gnostic myth of biological (Darwinian) evolution as an explanation both for the origin and development of life as well as for the perfecting of the one substance and mankind.  Cosmic Humanism springboards off of Darwinism into imaginary spiritual conceptions such as  Teilhard de Chardins' (1881-1955) idea.   The apostate French Jesuit priest  taught that God emerges from matter.  According to him, this evolution of God from the world results in evolution becoming "conscious of itself" and  ultimately, in the transformation  of all matter into "Christ consciousness" or "pure spirit." He called this final stage the "Omega Point" or "the cosmic Christ."

New Age  techniques to get in touch with the "Christ consciousness" include physical exercises, special diets (especially vegetarianism),  biofeedback, chanting, psychodrama, consciousness-raising strategies, hypnosis and self-hypnosis, centering, body disciplines and therapies such as hatha yoga and aikido as well as sensitivity groups and encounter groups, Zen, Tibetan Buddhism, drumming, mind-numbing rock music, brain-altering substances, and transcendental meditation.   

Former guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj, now a committed follower of Jesus Christ, describes his former transcendental meditation ritual and its' terrifying outcome:

"Nothing was more important than our daily transcendental meditation, the heart of Yoga, which Krishna advocated as the surest way to eternal Bliss.  But it could also be dangerous.  Frightening psychic experiences awaited the...meditator, similar to a bad trip on drugs.  Demons described in the Vedas had been known to take possession of some Yogis.  Kundalini power, said to be coiled like a serpent at the base of the spine, could produce ecstatic experiences when released in deep meditation — or...it could do great mental and bodily harm.  The line between ecstasy and horror was very fine...During daily meditation I began to have visions of psychedelic colors, to hear  unearthly music, and to visit exotic planets where the gods conversed with me, encouraging me to attain even higher states of consciousness.   Sometimes in my trance I encountered the same horrible demonic creatures...depicted by the images in Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto, and other religious temples.  It was a frightful experience, but the Brahmacharya explained that it was normal and urged me to pursue the quest for Self Realization.   At times I experienced a sense of mystical unity with the universe.  I was the universe, Lord of all, omnipotent, omnipresent.  My instructors were excited at this.  I was obviously a chosen vessel, destined for early success in the search for union with Brahman.  The Forces that had guided my father were now guiding me."  (Death of a Guru, Rabindranath R. Maharaj, pp. 56-57)

In 2008, Herescope explained the views of Teilhard de Chardin, father of the modern New Age movement:

 "Teilhard de Chardin's "Principle of Emergence" had to do with the consciousness of mankind breaking out collectively, creating an evolutionary convergence (a Noosphere built by spiritual formation) that would result in a "super-organism" of "collective mankind " (quotes from The Phenomenon of Man and The Future of Man). The term "emergent" itself is steeped in Teilhardian evolutionary ideology, and the modern New Age movement has popularized it to mean the manifestation of new examples of humanity's evolution towards this supposed collective consciousness."

"Teilhard also proposed an alternative eschatology, an '"eschatological' vision" in which "in order that the Kingdom of God may come..., it is necessary, as an essential physical condition, that the human Earth should already have attained the natural completion of its evolutionary growth... that the ultra-human perfection which neo-humanism envisages for Evolution will coincide in concrete terms with the crowning of the Incarnation awaited by all Christians" (The Future of Man, p. 280, which achieves "God all in everyone" The Phenomenon of Man, p. 310, italics in original)."

Over a period of decades, Teilhard's mystical pantheist theology has been incrementally incorporated into both the Roman Catholic and evangelical church.  The seeds planted by Teilhard took root in many apostate Christian theologians including Emergent church leader Leonard Sweet, were nurtured along by the Leadership Network, and have now come full bloom in the open:

"...Quantum Mystisicm ....is creating a Quantum Eschatology to deceive the church in these last days." (Herescope)

Herescope also reports that Sweet is associated with an organization called Second Billion,:

"...a downline networking global church growth group with an online Global Church Learning Center www.GCLC.tv where he is on the faculty. This group gives him a global outreach to train pastors in his Quantum Spirituality views. For example, in June 2008 He spoke at a Second Billion conference in Jarkarta, Indonesia to evangelical mission leaders."

On February 29, 2012,

 "...the Second Billion organization issued “A Special Message From Dr. Ken Blanchard” e-mail. The e-mail included a 2-minute video to hear Blanchard's “heart and vision” in promoting a “World Leaders Conference.” Conference Speakers included: Tony Blair, Erwin McManus, Bill Hybels, Laurie Beth Jones, Henry Cloud, Craig Groeschel, and others. (See “What Is the World Leaders Conference?”FAQS and list of sponsors.)
Second Billion has the goal to “double the size of the global church.” Leadership Network’s megastar Leonard Sweet has played a key leadership role, especially at its Synergize! conferences. Second Billion is also connected with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) at many levels, including shared personnel such as Sunday Adelaja and Jim Garlow.  An e-mail sent out 7/13/07 promoted the Dominionist ideal, “Be equipped to impact ‘seven spheres’ of society.” Sweet also co-authored Jesus Manifesto with Frank Viola, who has ties to the NAR.[li] Sweet has even published his own Bible version – The Voice Bible: Step Into the Story of Scripture –  where he employs narratives and poetry to tell Bible stories."

In one form or another, mystical pantheism is sweeping our nation.    In his book, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom," Allen Quist warns that it is being taught in our schools:

"New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation's public schools."  A model curriculum has been developed that "is clearly centered on pantheism."  "Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology.  The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination).  It is only Christianity that these organizations object to."  (p. 51)

Pastor Larry DeBruyn  summed up the powerfully seductive quantum cosmic deception in his book Unshackled: Breaking Away from Seductive Spirituality:

 "Emergent Christians like Leonard Sweet, who allow their worldview to be influenced by such spirituality, are being taken captive by philosophy and vain deceit.  The 'elements of the world' first enrapture and then capture their souls.  Like Judah who played the harlot with other gods, their fixation upon science seduces them into spiritual bondage. Captivation with the cosmos leads to being captured by the cosmos, the very “system” which Scripture informs us, “lies in the power of the evil one” (1 John 5:19)." (Herescope)

In 1901, Herman Bavinck, a Christian theologian foresaw the raging spiritual warfare of our own time.  Temporally, it is being fought between the defenders of supernatural Christian theism and the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and the promoters of ancient mystical pantheism, evolution and the Big Lie----all who are of one mind with the devil, the father of heresy and monism:

"Unless we are mistaken...the twentieth century...is to witness a gigantic conflict of spirits...More serious and fiercer than ever before, the conflict is between the old and the new worldview."

Modern Liberals: Dangerously Insane Revolutionaries from the Void

In "Who Is Winning the Gun War?" Pat Buchanan observes that after the bombing of the Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City America's liberals blamed Rush Limbaugh.  After the murder of six innocents," including a 9-year-old girl, and the wounding of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and a dozen others in Tucson, Ariz., by a certifiable lunatic,"  Sarah Palin was charged with moral complicity and after the "slaughter of 20 first-graders at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.,"  blame was laid at the feet of the National Rifle Association. (Townhall.com, April 12, 2013)

That liberals are very seriously morally and mentally unbalanced is obvious.  Ex-liberal Evan Sayet  agrees and writes that to say they are,

"...morally and intellectually retarded at the level of the five-year-old child, it is not hyperbole: it's a diagnosis."   (http://evansayet.com/)         

If they weren’t so dangerous and destructive said Sayet,

"... one could smile and pat the Modern Liberal on the head and tell him how cute he is and go on about the business of being an adult. But he is dangerous and destructive, with the True Believer’s very purpose being the total destruction of everything that God and science—most obviously Western Civilization—has ever created. ...The Modern Liberal will invariably and, in fact, inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success.” (Evan Sayet “The Kindergarden of Eden," http://evansayet.com/)

There are five  things we must understand about liberals if we are to make sense of and defend ourselves against their obvious intellectual and moral insanity.

First, they are self-indulgent narcissists who deny their own proclivity for evil.   The delusional self-conception they hold of themselves is of superior intellect and moral purity as befits gods.   No matter how obscene their language and destructive their actions, they are essentially good. Their lies for example, are 'caused' by hateful, bigoted authoritarians who prevent them from telling their own version of 'truth,' and after Adam Lanza,

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

Second, liberals reject the living, supernatural God and the Fall and choose instead to embrace evolution, materialism or pantheist conceptions of an immanent god-force, and fantasies of earthly utopias. 

In his commentary, "Guns, Guns, Guns" Daniel Greenfield points out that if you reject the Genesis account and  Original Sin and instead embrace evolutionary thinking, then evil is a chicken and egg question and man is its' helpless victim:

"... Violence had no beginning, except perhaps in the Big Bang, it was always here, coded into the DNA. If people are just grown-up animals, more articulate versions of the creatures who eat each other's young, and sometimes their own young, there is as much use in wondering about the nature of evil as there is in trying to understand why a killer whale kills."  (http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2012/12/guns-guns-guns.html)

Third, liberalism is neo-pagan animism dressed up as science.  Like their ancient pagan counterparts, liberals  are superstitious animists who believe that man is the helpless victim of unseen forces beyond his control.  Good and bad forces are in everything from mystical genes, memes, chemicals, the Bible, Ten Commandments, prayer to God, guns, laws of nature, chance, natural selection, and neurons firing within the grey matter of all evolved humans.   As lifeless neurons and chemicals somehow produce "thoughts" then "thoughts" can be either good or bad and of course only insane liberals are  possessed of the gnosis allowing them to decide what is acceptable or not.   

Fourth, liberalism is monism.  Monism is held in common by materialism, pantheism, and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems from Buddhism to  Epicureanism, Gnosticism, Luciferian Theosophy, Satanism,  and today's  occult New Age mystical pantheism.

Monism  teaches that all that exists is "one self-creating, self-sufficient substance" an impersonal, unknowing, lifeless substance which may be thought of as atoms bumping around in the void (Epicurean materialism) or divine world soul (mystical pantheism).  Within this framework, all things are merely diverse parts of the one-substance.

Monism's greatest appeal lies in the fact that it conceptually erases the vast fixed-gulf  between the supernatural God of Revelation and the natural dimension and man, thereby bringing heaven to earth (naturalism) and allowing man to divinize himself.  Rousas  Rushdoony explains:

"... much... is known of the concept of divine kingship, the king as god, and the god as king, as the divine-human link between heaven and earth. The god-king represented man on a higher (evolved, naturally selected) scale, man ascended, and the worship of such a god....was the assertion of the continuity of heaven and earth. It was the belief that all being was one being (materialist-pantheist monism), and the god therefore was an ascended man on that scale of being. The power manifested in the political order was thus a manifestation or apprehension and seizure of divine power (through the conceptual murder of God). It represented the triumph of a man (i.e., Hegel, Marx, Darwin, Freud, Teilhard, Lenin and Hitler) and of his people (i.e., Bolsheviks, Marxists, National Socialists, Teilhardian Trans Humanists)." (Rousas Rushdoony cited in "The Antichrist," by Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., pp. 246, 247; emphasis added)

Fifth, liberals are envy-bitten hypocrites who project their own wickedness onto others, that is, onto scapegoats who they daily crucify...psychologically bully, coerce, and terrorize.  The abuse takes many forms:

 Character assassination, baseless charges of hate, bigotry, fascism, homophobia and insanity.   Malignant backbiting, merciless ridicule, cruel scoffing and scorn, and malicious accusations aimed at producing a false sense of guilt that can be manipulated for the empowerment of the wicked.

These and other evil tactics have been systematized by the wicked as mind-control techniques and used to manipulate unsuspecting Americans.

 Sixth, liberals are nihilists.  Having rejected the living God who is the only source of life, their souls are dried out and materialized.  Like the spiritually desolate Gollum, their darkened souls are turned inward and downward, making them prisoners of their own cosmically-inflated egos, seething hatred, gnawing envy, churning lusts, rapacious greed and gluttony, teeth-grinding wrath as well as of afflictions of the spirit (mind) — paranoia, obsessions, fear of the void, anxiety dreams, horrible nightmares, thoughts of murder, evil fantasies, and peculiar ideas.

Believing in nothing higher than "self," their consciences are depraved and even demonically occluded while their reason has degenerated into sophistry. They are dangerously insane revolutionaries of the void.

The Confederacy: Enlightened Priests together with Secular and Mystical Pantheist Evolutionists

In "MSNBC's Harris-Perry: America's 'Kids Belong to Their Communities," Ken Shepherd reports that Perry not only believes the unborn child is a "thing" which takes a lot of money to "turn into a human" but that once a "thing" is actually born it belongs to the state rather than its' parents:

"Narrating a new MSNBC "Lean Forward" spot, the  Tulane professor laments that we in America  "haven't had a  very collective notion that these are our children (and we) have to  break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids  belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to their  communities..."  (Shepherd, NewsBusters.org, April 4, 2013)

The concept "collective notion" is an expression of mystical pantheist monism which posits the existence of  a Universal Mind or Universal Memory, a Collective Unconsciousness, or perhaps Teilhard's Omega.  These and all other variations of this same theme are  related to the ancient pagan idea that there is one solitary substance (pre-existing matter) comprising the basic fabric of the universe.   

Whereas the ancient Babylonians, Sumerians, Egyptians and Joseph Smith held that matter is eternal and all things, including the gods, evolved out of this divine substance, mystical pantheists like Dr. Roger D. Blomquist, who currently works as the Head of  Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at the Sevier Valley Hospital in Richfield, Utah,  teach the idea that a Universal Mind began by an evolutionary process from a singularity (pre-existing matter) approximately 13 billion years ago and "quickly began manifesting the properties of matter-energy, space-time, and intelligence-consciousness."    (Blomquist, supraconsciousnessnetwork.org)

Brahman, the One Consciousness or Universal Self is the Eastern mystical pantheist counterpart of Melissa Harris-Perry's Collective and Blomquist's Universal Mind which,

"... permeates the entire cosmos (and) is manifested as intelligence-consciousness interacting with matter-energy in space-time....This universal mind (Creative Force) was present at the moment of the Big Bang and has been continuously directing the evolutionary process ever since.....The conscious human mind that we each experience on a daily basis is not an epiphenomenon as some would have us believe but rather an extension of a universal wide consciousness which has been continuously present from the moment of the Big Bang. Natural selection has also been shaping this evolutionary process but more in the role of an editor.....Every aspect of our existence can be defined by this elementary substance (conceived as ) the holographic distribution of information throughout all of space (universe)." (Blomquist)

Four themes that stand out in Perry's and Blomquist's pantheist conceptions are pre-existing matter, monism and/or naturalism, and evolutionary process.  The fourth theme results from the third and is inversion of the order of creation.

In the "Pagan Temptation," Christian scholar Thomas Molnar reports that the idea that matter is eternal is a pattern of thought stretching back to the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greeks in the West and in the East to the Upanishads. (p. 26)    In this way of thinking, everything somehow emerged out of non life-bearing primordial matter. 

From the Babylonians to our own time, primordial matter has gone by many names, for example: divine One Substance, watery abyss, Chaos, Nu, void, Prakriti stuff, Universal Mind and Teilhard de Chardin's Omega Point:

".....de Chardin believed that humanity could achieve a form of Godhood or a high level of spirituality called the Omega Point. This was an evolutionary process that everyone could attain through discipline and dedication to the path of enlightenment." (Reflections of the Omega Point, Frank Tipler, omegapoint.org)

The Egyptian Sun-God Ra emerged (created himself) from out of Nu – the divine One Substance (primordial matter) and then  became God by an evolutionary process, or as Joseph Smith recounts in "Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith" (345-47), "by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one." 

The Sun-God recounts his own evolutionary process:

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

In all pagan systems such as Blomquist's, Teilhard's and Eastern mystical conceptions,  pre-existent matter is described as impersonal "spirit" or perhaps "world soul" and is neither male nor female.  It does not live, think or speak; it merely is. The human soul therefore is not created in the spiritual image of the living God Who exists outside of the time-space dimension Who Spoke and revealed Himself to man, thus it follows that humans are neither male nor female and the conscious human mind is an extension of the impersonal, non life-bearing Collective, Universal Mind, Omega or Universal Self.

 This is naturalism (paganism) which is the belief that there is neither living supernatural God nor heavenly realm outside of the space-time dimension. There is only the natural dimension consisting of the One Substance, and this is monism.

Monism erases the Creator-creature distinction and like evolution is common to all occult systems,

"...from the magical sects of the East to the gnostics of the early church period, and from there unto today's preachers of cosmic evolution and irresistible karma." (Monism teaches) "...we are all gods in the making.  Out of One has proceeded the many, and back into One are the many traveling.  Eastern mystics, philosophical Hegelians, and followers of Teilhard de Chardin are all agreed on the reality of ultimate monism."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 60)

Monism not only erases the Creator-creature distinction but also denies any eternal separation of saved and lost, thus all paths lead to the same place.  It also denies any ultimate distinction between man and Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ and Lucifer, heaven and hell, truth and lie, good and evil, past and present, male and female, structure and change. 

Frank Baumer  observes that the sweeping acceptance of evolution throughout the post-Christian West and America has,

"....persuaded people to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation."   It is "now difficult if not impossible for an educated man to conceive of a primitive revelation such as traditional Christianity taught, or even of an original natural religion from which men had declined." This difficulty arises because "in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future." (Religion and Rise of Skepticism, p. 147)

If perfection is somewhere in the future, then unborn human beings are not yet human as they are still in process of evolution, thus they are expendable "things" that take a lot of money to "turn into a human" so why bother with all of that expense when it is much cheaper and more convenient to abort them?

In the Genesis account the living, supernatural Triune God created all things ex-nihilo, or out of nothing. He is self-existent, eternal, immutable, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He is the sovereign Lord of the universe. He is the God of all creation. He is the God who stands outside of the space-time dimension, thus creation actually began before time and matter came to be as God spoke life, soul/spirit, matter and all else out of nothing. The living, supernatural God is the First Cause of all things. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 33:6; John 1:3; Romans 4:17; Hebrews 11:3):

"For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together." Col. 1:16, 17

Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar observes that the unique concept of man as God's spiritual image-bearer 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)

Early Church Fathers are the living connection between Jesus Christ and His apostles, the Old Testament prophets and today's Church and what they have to say about the Genesis account is crucial.

The Fathers regarded Genesis, especially the first three chapters, as Divinely inspired text that tells of actual, historical events and people.  St. Cyril of Alexandria, for example, wrote that Genesis is Divinely inspired and cannot be apprehended rightly without respect for its’ historical meaning:

Those who reject the historical meaning in the God-inspired Scriptures as something obsolete are avoiding the ability to apprehend rightly, according to the proper manner, the things written in them…whenever some historical events are presented to us by the Holy Scriptures (a) useful search into the historical meaning is appropriate, in order that the God-inspired Scripture be revealed as salvific and beneficial to us in every way.” (St. Cyril, “Commentary on the Prophet Isaiah 1,4, PG 70, 192AB)

But ever since evolutionary thinking appeared in the West and later on in America, "evolutionarily enlightened" theologians have been reducing the Divinely inspired Genesis account to allegory, fanciful poetic language or myth.  The consequences of this act, whether witting or unwitting are devastating, for conceptually the door has been shut on the living God who stands outside of the space-time dimension  and opened to admit Christianized monism.  Like falling dominos, "enlightened priests" have rejected His revelation, rejected the fall of Lucifer and Adam and Eve, rejected the unique concept of man as God's spiritual image-bearer, reduced sin and evil to symbols, and negated man's need of a savior.

n his article, "Confronting Neo-Paganism in the Culture and the Church" Dr. Peter Jones reports that many of the architects of the new spirituality, Christianized-Vedanta monism,

".... such as Aldous Huxley, Joseph Campbell, and Huston Smith were converts of Vedanta ..... Contemporary architects... call themselves 'Cultural Creative's,' 'Progressives,' 'Evolutionaries,' 'Integral Spiritualists,' 'Interspiritualists' or 'Transtraditional Spiritualists.'      It is doubtless true to say that the key New Age leaders and their present disciples all claim some form of Vedantic enlightenment." (truthexchange, Apr. 12, 2011)

Spiritual evolutionist and Vedanta prophet Ken Wilber, a Mahayana Buddhist from a Christian background, teaches "integral spirituality." A popular author whose teachings have been avidly studied by world leaders, politicians (i.e. Bill Clinton and Al Gore), theologians, scholars, writers, artists, musicians, spiritual teachers and pop culture icons, Wilber combines evolution with the world's nature religions, morals, and Eastern and Western philosophy so as to establish a universal spirituality.

 

A panentheist, Wilber imagines that the entire universe is God evolving from matter through billions of years toward de Chardin's 'Omega Point.' Having evolved from primordial soup beast-man now evolves toward total god-consciousness, and in this way, the imaginary god is in process of becoming while evolution becomes conscious of itself.

A form of Christianized-Vedanta monism is already here, said Dr. Peter Jones:

 

"Evolutionary Christianity" is producing the longed-for and much-prophesied synthesis, namely, the union of science and spirituality.... Evolutionary Christianity is a variant of Wilber's 'Theory of Everything,' a worldview of (Vedanta monism) that claims to explain everything through the notion of human evolution into a non-dual divine. Michael Dowd, the ex-Evangelical now evangelist for evolution (agrees) with Bishop's Spong's post-theistic Christianity (and) declares supernatural other-worldly religion will die out for a post-metaphysical natural religion."

Jones adds that Evolutionary Christianity is an online gathering place for:

"....evangelical theistic evolutionists, 'progressive' Emergent Christian leaders, radical post-theistic Christian liberals, Christian non-dual mystics, pro-homosexual ministers, radical religious feminists, and recognized evolutionary scientists. Some are deeply influenced by Pierre Teillard de Chardin, and pagan "geologians" such as Thomas Berry and Brian Swimme."

Emergent Church Pastor Rob Bell for example, enthusiastically endorses Ken Wilber and claims to be reinventing Christianity as an Eastern religion while evangelical leader Leonard Sweet uses quantum physics to 'scientifically' prove that God is 'in' everything. Not surprisingly, Sweet cites Teilhard de Chardin as "20th century Christianity's major voice." (Normalizing Necromancy: Tempting the Church to Talk with the Dead, Worldview Weekend, 1/23/12)

o completely has the evolutionary transformation been that it has successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism.  With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.  Self-perfecting men and women like Teilhard, Melissa Perry and Blomquist no longer need the living, supernatural God as the idea of "conscious evolution" means that man can save himself, and perhaps even attain god-hood upon mystical fusion with the divine one substance.

 

Secular materialist and mystical pantheist evolutionists in unison with "enlightened priests"  have not only exchanged the truth about God for a lie (Romans 1:25-27)  but together stand in opposition to all Christians who stand for the literal truth of the Genesis account of creation. Across the entire denominational spectrum of the Church, we see that "enlightened priests" have joined ranks with ungodly neo-pagans in opposing those who defend the Divine revelation of God.  (Isaiah 8:12-13)

 Such a confederacy seems almost too strong to resist and strikes fear and terror into the hearts of many Christians.   But as Peter reminds us, it is the living God we must fear rather than godless men and women and weak, compromising, intellectually proud priests:

"Be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer (apologetic) to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear" (1 Peter 3:14-15).

@Linda Kimball

In a world without God, fixed meaning, higher purpose and accountability, why not lie, cheat, wed 'gay' couples, plunder and kill?

"We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves..." Isaiah 28:15

There is nothing new under the sun. From the beginning men have been rebelling against the true God and taking refuge in lies:

"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 by Dr. David Livingston, "Who was Nimrod?")

Since the dawn of time rebels against God have been making lies and deception their refuge:

"We have to use any ruse, dodge, trick, cunning, unlawful method, concealment, and veiling of the truth." V.I. Lenin, God-hating evolutionist, mass-murderer, and progressive liberal anti-hero. (The Marxist Goliath Among Us, Ronald J. Lawrence, p. 28)

"I suppose the reason we leaped at the origin of species was because the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores," confessed Sir Julian Huxley, former president of UNESCO and grandson of Darwin's colleague Thomas Huxley. (Henry M. Morris, The Troubled Waters of Evolution, Creation-Life Publishers, 1974, p. 58)

Of Darwin's theory that everything ascended (evolved) upward out of self-generated genderless matter, the great Christian theologian Charles Spurgeon pointedly observed,

"There is not a hair of truth upon this dog from its head to its tail, but it rends and tears the simple ones. In all its bearing upon scriptural truth, the evolution theory is in direct opposition to it. If God's Word be true, evolution is a lie." (Spurgeon, Hideous Discovery, July 25, 1886)

Evolutionist Suzan Mazur seems to agree with Spurgeon. In her book, "The Altenberg 16: An Expose of the Evolution Industry" she looks at the rivalry in contemporary natural science surrounding attempts to discover the elusive process of evolution. Her book openly acknowledges the unresolvable problems surrounding evolution and natural selection and documents these concerns with statements from leading evolutionary scientists. Mazur comments:

"A wave of scientists now questions natural selection's role, though fewer will publicly admit it." (p. 20, "Desperate attempts to discover 'the elusive process of evolution,' reviewed by Walter J. ReMine, Creation Ministries International)

She describes evolutionary science as a modern day quest for the Holy Grail that is very much about posturing, salesmanship, stonewalling and bullying. It is a social discourse involving hypotheses of staggering complexity,

"...with scientists, recipients of the biggest grants of any intellectuals, assuming the power of politicians while engaged in Animal House pie-throwing and name-calling..." (ibid)

Evolution books are hyped like snake oil at a carnival:

"Perhaps the most egregious display of commercial dishonesty is this year's celebration of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, the so-called theory of evolution by natural selection, i.e., survival of the fittest, a brand foisted on us 150 years ago." (ibid)

Mazur admits that genes and natural selection have little to do with long-term changes in populations. Here she not only calls attention to the existing censorship against non-Darwinian ideas but tells us why it happens:

"The commercial media is both ignorant of and blocks coverage of stories about non-centrality of the gene because its science advertising dollars come from the gene-centered Darwin industry. At the same time, the Darwin industry is also in bed with government, even as political leaders remain clueless about evolution. Thus, the public is unaware that its dollars are being squandered on funding of mediocre, middlebrow science or that its children are being intellectually starved as a result of outdated texts and unenlightened teachers." (Mazur, p. ix, ibid)

Today vast numbers of spiritually blind Westerners and Americans are entangled and increasingly isolated within a massive and still growing web of delusion, and evolution said C.S. Lewis,

"...is the central and radical lie in the whole web of falsehood that now governs our lives..." (Letter to Bernard Acworth, Spt. 13, 1951)

In his masterpiece, "Ideas Have Consequences," early intellectual conservative Richard Weaver traced the web's first threads to the late 14th century when Western man made an "evil decision" to abandon his belief in transcendent, unchanging "universals" and thus the position that "there is a source of truth higher than, and independent of man..." The consequences of this revolution were catastrophic:

"The denial of everything transcending experience means inevitably...the denial of truth. With the denial of objective truth there is no escape from the relativism of 'man is the measure of all things." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, pp. 30-33)

Corruption and delusion rapidly spread and deepened, the web expanded and the downward spiral continued:

The living, supernatural God was conceptually murdered, heaven shut-down and nature and the physical world of the senses elevated to the supreme reality. The doctrine of original sin was abandoned and replaced by the 'goodness of man' and the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo dehistoricized and replaced with evolutionary cosmogonies claiming spontaneous generation and vast ages of time. As supernatural Christianity declined, rationalism and then Protestant Liberalism (pantheism) arose and materialist evolutionary science became the most prestigious way to study man. With knowledge limited to the sensory realm, Jesus Christ the Word Incarnate was reduced to an immanent mystical evolutionary force or Christ consciousness within nature while man's spiritual attributes — soul/spirit (mind, conscience and will) — were soon lost in an endless cycle of reductionism and determinism. Man, created in the spiritual likeness of his supernatural Creator would be lost. In his place would stand the soulless hominid, an accidental emergent product of spontaneously-generated mystical matter and evolutionary forces:

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

Spontaneously generated dead matter not only thinks but is divine:

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

In "Socialism and Religious Beliefs," Enrico Ferri (1856-1926), a prominent socialist of his day and editor of Avanti, a socialist daily, confesses that Darwinism is fundamental to socialism and further reveals that natural causality or determining forces substitute for miracles and divinity:

"....modern positive science...has substituted the conception of natural causality for the conception of miracles and divinity....I add that not only is Darwinism not contrary to socialism, but that it forms one of its fundamental scientific premises. As Virchow justly remarked, socialism is nothing else than the logical and vital outcome partly of Darwinism and partly of Spencerian evolution." (www.marxists.org/archive/ferri/1894/religion.htm)

Darwinism has destroyed the foundations of supernatural Christianity and man's soul/spirit:

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

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

If Darwin was right, man is nothing more than a soulless bag of chemicals or equally soulless hominid and there is no ultimate fixed meaning or higher purpose to life except what we choose:

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

Wieland points out that even where Darwin is denied,

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

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

All of this makes a devilish kind of sense if the true God does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose since nature magically created itself. If man is just a bag of chemicals destined to be recycled as fertilizer, with neither hope of an afterlife nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world then why not commit suicide? Why not sexually pervert children, cheat on and maybe even murder your spouse, gun down children, toss unwanted babies into trash bins, and use the force of perverted, meaningless law to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others? Why not redefine sodomy, pedophilia, pederasty, bestiality and lesbianism as 'gay' and then marry 'gay' couples in Washington's National Cathedral? (Washington National Cathedral to Wed Same-Sex Couples, Ben Brumfield, CNN, Jan. 9, 2013)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But if humans are just evolved bags of chemicals destined to be recycled as fertilizer then why not use them for drug experiments, especially as it is so profitable? And if you happen to be among the West's financial criminal elite then why not plunder the wealth and resources of unsuspecting Western and American tax-slave hominids while offering them socialism, drugs, poverty, misery and Darwinism in return?

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

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

The super wealthy are mainly global corporatists and bankers:

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

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

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

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

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

But why not blame Conservatives and use deadly force against the NRA? Why not,

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

Self-deceived rebels against God have made a covenant with death and taken refuge in lies and falsehood. Being in agreement with hell their world is a hell-on-earth where man is a soulless bag of chemicals with neither hope of an afterlife nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world, so if a devilish rebel irrationally hates Conservatives, why not demonize them? Why not stir up hate and murderous intent against them? Why not?

"There's nothing to fear but fear itself. So why not go ahead? What's to stop you?" whispers the devil in sadistic satisfaction.
