Gnostic Chiliastic Evolution: Satan's Alternative Plan of Salvation

“…so far as human wisdom and resources are concerned, the salvation of sinners is as impossible as raising the dead.  Every conceivable method of expiation and purification has been tried without success.”   Charles Hodge

In the hearts of all humans, bar none, is the possibility of evil, thus sin, said GK Chesterton, is as obvious as potatoes.  This being the case it is completely irrational for the unrepentant to think they can purify themselves and others when it is their evil conscience and will turned toward wickedness---aspects of their souls--- that need cleansing.  And it is because man is evil and depraved, that the 20th century’s purification movements-- Marxist Communism and Nazi Socialism---purified the human gene pool by murdering in excess of 160,000,000 men, women and children of which in Russia, approximately half were Christians.  According to Srdja Trifkovic, persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism, and mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Communist Bolshevism,

“….is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history….Attempts at “killing the soul” started only months after the Revolution of 1917.” Persecution and martyrdom was, “several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed. It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime.” (New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com) 

In his analysis of Marxist Communism, early conservative intellectual Frank Meyer describes it as the state form taken by a materialist pagan,  

"...faith determined to rule the world"   Communism is the "final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

Communism is a godless, philosophically pagan form of heretical Jewish elements and heretical Protestant liberalism's upside-down, anti-creation account grounded in a chiliastic-evolutionary, apocalyptic proclamation of a coming new order based in belief in the inevitability of evolutionary progress from molecule to sea-weed, reptile, ape, hominid, and finally god-man and in the perfectibility of this fallen world. (1)

Chiliasm in Greek means 'thousand years' and is primarily a godless version of the millennial belief expressed in some Christian denominations that there will be a paradise on earth where Christ will reign for a thousand years prior to the final judgment and future eternal state. 

The contemporary chiliastic-evolutionary movement is Technocracy.  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 1930's, 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 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." (Preface, Technocracy Rising, Patrick Wood) 

Huxley concluded that Technocracy produces scientific dictatorship designed to scientifically engineer, manipulate, dominate and control the world's wealth and resources and micro-manage every human being in every detail of his life.  Moreover, said Huxley, 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 as empirical science, or any decision or outcome would be tantamount to blasphemy.  

Like its' 20th century counterparts, Technocracy is the evolutionary chiliastic expression of a coming Golden Age that is the culminating hubris of Promethean god-men who having 'murdered' the Christian God mean to purify and remake man and creation.

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

In an upside-down exegesis typical of Gnosticism, Helena Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy, 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..."  (Theosophy University Press, 1888, p. 243, 513)

Chiliastic-evolutionary systems are modern forms of ancient and very "elitist" pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnosticism which assigns the Holy Triune God to hell and instead worships Lucifer.   Furthermore, it teaches that salvation is attained through the 'elitist' knowledge of Gnostic teachers such as gurus, god-men, certain scientists and Oprah Winfrey, a contemporary spiritual guide possessed of the knowledge of the Gnostic cosmogony. 

With Satan as the spiritual father of an army of unrepentant Gnostic pagans, it is no wonder that modern Gnostic systems have so far produced every dictatorial, genocidal utopian movement of the 20th century and underpin contemporary spiritually pagan, chiliastic New Age and Technocratic globalists hopes and visions.  In his article, "Leftism a Radical Faith," Bruce Riggs notes that much of the political history of the extended 20th 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." (2)  

The authors of the Black Book of Communism point to the godless anti-creation Darwinian "biological and zoological" strain of thinking as the engine of evil that proved itself a most effective means of denying the humanity of millions of victims: 

"This strain of thinking 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, Stephanie Courtois, p. 751)

The devilish Gnostic rebel Vladimir Lenin concurs.   Anti-creation Darwinism put an end to the belief that human, animals, and vegetable kinds bear no relation to one another and,

"that they were created by God, and hence immutable."  (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9) 

Twentieth century Gnostic pagan god-states systematically dehumanized and murdered millions of people in order to create an imagined earthly Eden purified of evil, and this is clearly insane.  Yet this evil religion whose spiritual father is Satan continues today as a God-hating, globally elitist, evolutionary progressive, politico-centric faith entirely disdainful of orthodox Christian and faithful Jewish beliefs and contemptuous of those who subscribe to them.  

In short, devilish Gnostic chiliastic evolution is a Satanic spiritually pagan religion with the look of a religious inquisition that represents the 20th century heretical version of orthodox Christianity.  Unless we grasp this crucial point the nature of this devilishly evil religion will elude us. (3)   

Rise of Satan's Chiliastic Technocratic Utopia

In "False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion," Lee Penn wans that the United Religions Initiative (URI) and the Gaia initiative represents the spiritually pagan religious facet of the coming Technocratic New World Order.  The URI is a United Nations organization that to a significant extent is animated by Satanic Gnostic chiliastic evolution. In preparation for the coming new order, a 'new' pagan spirituality is under construction of which the Earth Charter is set to become its Holy Writ. 

Crafted by a conclave of 'Wise Persons' headed by former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev, its benign sounding verbiage,

"and symbolic nature camouflage its dangerous purpose.  The Charter is intended to become a universally adopted creed that will psychologically prepare the world's children to accept the necessity of world government to save the environment.  It is also an outrageous attempt to indoctrinate your children in the UN's New Age paganism." (The New World Religion, William F. Jasper, New American, 2002)  

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

Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to the ambitions of Technocratic global elites.  Thus after more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in schools, seminaries, pulpits, media, academia and elsewhere global elite god-men like Jeremy Rifkin are finally free to declare that evolution is a living "Mind" enlarging its domain as it evolves up and through the "chain of species."  Moreover, now that the evolution god "Mind" reigns supreme, global elitists no longer feel like guests in someone else's home and therefore obliged to make their behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules: 

  "It is our creation now. We make the rules (and) establish the parameters of reality.  We create the world (and) no longer have to justify our behavior...We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever." (Algeny, Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

Here we see that in the completely delusional, entirely depraved (Jer. 51: 17-18), and ultimately demonically orchestrated global elite dream-scape it is not the personal Triune God who has created and sustains the world.  No, it is each Gnostic man-god who creates and sustains his own world and meaning in every moment out of his own divine consciousness.  In other words, since according to the devil the substance of the Holy Creator God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos, including the mind of man, then by occult magic rituals such as transcendental meditation and brain-altering drugs, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls the cosmos because he controls "Mind."  The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man. 

Given the likelihood that an ancient evil intelligence has crawled inside Rifkin and other Technocratic god-men the fact that New Age spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through mediums such as Blavatsky, Bailey, Benjamin Crème, Robert Muller, Neale Donald Walsh and Barbara Marx Hubbard, to name but a few, should come as no surprise.  Penn observes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a Gnostic progressive vision of apocalyptic spiritualized totalitarianism that includes: 

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

2. Highly evolved humans are gods.

3. Advocacy for extreme population control

4. Concentrated hate directed at faithful Judaism, orthodox evangelical Protestantism, and Roman Catholicism

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

Speaking through Barbara Marx 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, Penn, p. 322) 

The meaning of 'self-centered' is briefly defined in the Global Biodiversity Assessment, a document mandated by the U.N. sponsored Convention on Biological Diversity. 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 orthodox Christianity teaches that there is an unbridgeable gulf between the Triune God and His creation that is only breached by Jesus Christ then idolaters like Jeremy Rifkin do not and cannot share the substance of the Triune God as pantheism teaches.  According to Christianity man is radically different from the Lord and atonement, purification and mediation is achieved only through Jesus Christ, Who rose from the dead.  This means that neither Rifkin nor any other Technocratic global elitist is god but rather an evil idolater speeding along the broad, smooth highway to hell.  

All modern Gnostic pagan movements share the same chiliastic goal: a coming "new pantheist order" and "new pagan god-man" completely purified of all evil and existing in oneness with the evolutionary god force.  This means extermination of all faithful Christians and Jews and other dissenters who refuse to become one with the god of forces.  

Purification also extends to Biblical moral standards, sexual ethics, traditional marriage and traditions derived therefrom since they have been by-passed by the ongoing process of evolution.  These will be changed just as all distinctions between nonlife forms, life forms and gender will be blurred in the idea of evolution from molecule to ape to man and woman to transgender to androgynous god-man.  In the same way, all distinctions between good and evil, nations and religions will be merged in the chiliastic vision of worldly purification. 

In conclusion, Gnostic chiliastic evolution is the anti-gospel of Satan, thus the antithesis of the glorious Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ.  So powerful is the stranglehold of Satan's anti-gospel on millions of darkened Western minds that it has imaginatively inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism, meaning that the millions of people whose minds are in bondage to Satan and his legions can no longer think right-side up.  With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by the evolution god it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but are instead gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.  

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

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

"Political Ponerology" is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej M. Łobaczewski to an interdisciplinary study of the founders (i.e., Karl Marx) and supporters of 20th century totalitarian political regimes.     His study utilizes data from psychology, sociology, philosophy, and history to account for the propagation of man's inhumanity to man through such phenomena as terrorism, aggressive war, ethnic cleansing, ostracism, genocide, and despotism:
 
 "As many as 7 million Ukrainians were starved in Soviet Socialist dictator Joseph Stalin's artificial, forced famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. This is approximately the total population of Manitoba, Newfoundland, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island." (Inky Mark, M. P. Dauphin - Swan River House of Commons 2 June 1998, Famine-Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933)
 
 "Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)
 
 "... On one side, millions of starving peasants, their bodies often swollen from lack of food; on the other, soldiers, members of the GPU carrying out the instructions of the dictatorship of the proletariat. They had gone over the country like a swarm of locusts and taken away everything edible; they had shot or exiled thousands of peasants, sometimes whole villages; they had reduced some of the most fertile land in the world to a melancholy desert." (ibid, Malcolm Muggeridge, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)
 
 "Food is a weapon." (ibid, Maxim Litvinov - Soviet Commissar of Foreign Affairs)
 
 According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist and Socialist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were criminal enterprises in their very essence:
 
 "...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)
 
 A coalition of atheist pagan Jews (Bolsheviks) and atheist pagan Gentiles (Marxist Communists) systematically stole the personal property of Russians and sexually perverted their children and conditioned them to hate the Trinity, Jesus Christ God Incarnate in particular, as well as their own parents, the Christian church and their homeland.  The sons of Belial undermined and destroyed the traditional family, unleashed a holocaust of abortion, homosexualized culture, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of more than sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:
 
 "About 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union, a Russian commission reported this week. In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the country's mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyed" Clergymen were crucified on churches' holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled," said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. The commission prepared the report for Russian President Boris Yeltsin. "I was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter," Yakovlev said. "It was total cruelty." (paulbogdanor.com)
 
 "Persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism--mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Bolshevism--is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history....Attempts at "killing the soul" started only months after the Revolution of 1917." Persecution and martyrdom was, "several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed.   It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime." (New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com) 
 
 In this light we can understand why Lobaczewskis' original manuscript quickly went into the furnace just minutes before a secret police raid.  In 1984 the manuscript was reassembled, but according to Lobaczewski, its publication was blocked by technocratic globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski.  After half a century of suppression it is finally available.
 
 Though Lobaczewski's study is a clinically accurate description of the nature of human evil it falls into the error of attributing evil to biological causes rather than the sin nature of man.   Despite this failing, Political Ponerology is a shocking account of large scale evil super-heated by hatred of the Holy God and burning with envy and will to power---or what Lobaczewski terms 'ponerogenic processes'  that overtook modern Russia and have overtaken whole societies and nations since time immemorial.
 
 When ponerogenic processes have finally saturated a society's entire ruling class and opposition from morally convicted people has been crushed, then we are dealing with what Lobaczewski calls Macrosocial Evil or a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." (p. 121)
 
Ponerogenic processes are synonymous with the unfettered, vastly inflamed sin nature of man beginning with inflated pride issuing in covetousness, selfishness, ingratitude, jealousy, resentment and hate, all of which early Church Fathers combined into the cold-blooded vice known as envy.   Thus when 'macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon' has saturated a nation's ruling class and most of its society it means that a tyranny of evil fueled by poneros has overtaken it.   Poneros is:
 
"The passion which causes evil, the father of death, the first entrance for sin, the root of wickedness, the birth of sorrow, the mother of misfortune, the basis of disobedience, the beginning of shame. Envy banishes us from paradise....Envy made Joseph a slave. Envy is the death-dealing sting, the hidden weapon, the sickness of nature, the bitter poison, the self-willed emaciation, the bitter dart, the nail of the soul, the fire in the heart, the flame burning on the inside..." (Life of Moses, Gregory of Nyssa, quoted in Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. Aquaro, p. 74)
 
"Scripture combines envy with jealousy, covetousness and stinginess, into a single concept that is a manifestation of idolatry (narcissism) of self and belief that there is a limited supply of good." (ibid)
 
Scripture attributes poneros to the Evil One, the leader of all forces of evil.   The Evil One is the spirit of rebellion and negation, the father of lies, "the adversary" "the accuser,"  "calumniator" and undiluted essence of envy who works through the principle of negation and rebellion in the fallen souls of lawless natural men:
 
 "The evil man out of his evil treasure bringeth forth evil (poneros) things" Matthew 12:35
 
 Poneros  has played a part in human dynamics ever since the Evil One persuaded the envy-bitten Cain to murder his brother Abel, Judas to betray Jesus Christ and the Pharisees to crucify Him, and Saul to suddenly throw his spear at David in a murderous attempt at pinning him to a wall. (1 Sam. 18:11)  In fact, the envy-bitten Saul tried three times to kill David with a javelin (1 Sam. 18:10-11, 19: 9-10) and to bring about David's death by the Philistines. (1 Sam. 18:25)  
 
 Poneros is also the spirit animating British philosopher Adam Smith's sophistry, that is, his phony concern postured in sophisticated questions and 'evidence' such as,
 
 "Is having a loving family an unfair advantage?"  "Should parents snuggling up for one last story before lights out be even a little concerned about the advantage they might be conferring?"  
 
"Evidence shows that the difference between those who get bedtime stories and those who don't - the difference in their life chances - is bigger than the difference between those who get elite private schooling and those that don't." (Parents reading to kids blasted as 'unfair,' Joe Kovacs, WND, May, 2015)
 
 Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. captures the spirit of poneros in his brilliantly conceived short story, "Harrison Bergeron,"
 
 "THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General."   
 
 As a tyranny of poneros had overtaken and led to the degradation and implosion of ancient Greek society, an exploration of Greek thought with regard to types of envy will prove enlightening. The first type is 'zelos,' a kind of envy stirred up by any perceived superiority (inequality).  In the poem, 'Work and Days,' Isocrates presents the spirit of zelos as "with grim face and screaming voice, who delights in evil" and causes Decency and Respect to flee. (1)  The anonymous author "Michael Swift" warns of this very thing in a widely circulated article called "Gay Revolutionary."  In prose that chills the spine Swift warns the envied straight community that the men of Sodom shall be victorious,
 
 "..because we are filled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages...We too are capable of firing guns and manning barricades of the ultimate revolution....Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks."  (Spirit Wars: Pagan Revival in Christian America, Peter Jones, p. 255)
 
 Empowered by spineless, accommodating jellies throughout our seminaries, pulpits, government and courts, the envy-bitten men and women of modern Sodom maliciously terrorize Christian bakers, florists, bed and breakfast owners and other decent, law-abiding straight males and females, forcing them to either submit or be crushed even as the men of Sodom openly rape the souls and bodies of their sons and daughters in churches, schools, and elsewhere. (Envy and the Greeks: A Study of Human Behavior, Peter Walcot, pp. 2-3 from Death by Envy, Fr. George R. A. Aquaro, p. 12)
 
 As the Holy Triune God is the "moral monster" responsible for the poor choices, weaknesses, sin nature and failures of the self-pitying, self-absorbed and envy-bitten, zelos is also the spirit behind the 'murder' of the Christian God, the closing off of the supernatural dimension and the Way to Paradise with the requisite suppression of His Revelation to man, the miracle of Special Creation, Original Sin, Moral Law, immutable Truth, judgment, and hell. Thus zelos is the lying, hateful, intolerant spirit behind the elevation of evolutionary scientism above the inerrant Word of God. 
 
 Zelos animates back-stabbing gossip, slander, snooping, spying, tale-bearing, the politics of personal destruction as well as special rights and privileges for the so-called oppressed (envy-bitten).  Zelos demands redistribution of wealth, egalitarian sameness issuing in loss of gender identity (i.e., mother, father, husband, wife) in favor of gender-neutral terms such as 'partner.' It demands same-sex marriage, absolute inclusion and tolerance, 'legalized' illegal immigration, the mandated sexualization and perversion of our youth by pan-sexual and omni-gendered sexologists, and a hob-nailed boot viciously crushing the faces of envied "oppressors."  
 
Morally, zelos is the venom behind America's reigning Pharisaic legalism: political correctness, hate crime laws, speech codes, gender equality, economic equality, and sensitivity training.  In 'political' terms, green-eyed zelos is the spirit of green multiculturalism, green ecology, green sustainability, green 'family planning,' green global warming/cooling/change, green socialism and green diversity.
 
 In "Diversity': The Idol of Academia," Jack Kerwick describes diversity as a 'god' that is as educationally invidious as it is false:
 
"Diversity" is not just a good in the academic world. It is the supreme good, the one good before which all other considerations must yield...."cultural diversity" not only doesn't correspond to a rise in intellectual diversity; it invariably corresponds to a rise in political uniformity. This is crucial, for the promotion of "cultural diversity" is nothing more or less than the promotion of a left-wing ideological agenda."  (June 26, 2014 Jack Kerwick, Front Page Magazine)
 
Zelos in its every malignant, sadistic permutation is the green-eyed spirit behind left-wing ideology and its' totalitarian fantasy:
 
 "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." (Winston Churchill, British orator, author and Prime Minister during World War II, 1874-1965)
 
 "When I say that Marxism is based on envy, I mean that the glorious revolution of the proletariat...was really a promise to put a final end to all the conditions that make for envy." (Joseph Epstein, author and former editor of The American Scholar, from Truths about Socialism, Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)
 
After zelos come philotimia and hybris.   In Greek mythology, philotimia is narcissism--love of self, love of attention, love of self-affirmation, love of self-gratification-- while hybris is the arrogance, insolence, contempt, insult, shame, hatred and mistreatment of human objects of envy by a sadistic narcissist. In Greece, philotemia and hybris were on display when the gods and their earthly counterparts punished inferior 'subhumans' for usurping their authority as well as when they struggled amongst themselves for positions of primacy.   In America, philotimia and hybris are visible when America's left-right 'ruling class' god-men try to destroy each other in their vicious power struggles among themselves. These two green-eyed monsters, philotemia/hybris are on display whenever the god-men's lapdog media engage in vicious psychological bullying and other malicious forms of mistreatment of stupid, unevolved hominids --the hard-working middle class, especially the Tea Party and God-fearing orthodox Christians and faithful Jews---the so-called oppressors.  
 
 Philotimia/hybris is also the spirit animating the intolerant, hateful attitudes of evolutionary theologians toward defenders of the Revealed Word of God beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo. 
 
 Phthonos is the fourth type of envy/covetousness.  Phthonos seeks to deprive envied 'other' of possessions, honor, status, spiritual gifts and virtues.  Phthonos for example, is the diabolical Darwinian reductionism of man in his Creator's spiritual image to ape.  It is the green-eyed totalitarian spirit of Agenda 21 together with save the earth and re-wilding schemes that elevate crocodiles, trash fish, and other creatures above the welfare of human beings.

Phthonos animates carbon footprint schemes, population control plans, passive euthanasia (refusal of health care to targeted Obama care recipients), the attempted theft of Bundy's ranch and other private property and resources.  Phthonos is driven not just to ostracize and confiscate but to use psychological manipulation (i.e., lies, false guilt, slander, propaganda, scape-goating) and other terroristic force to take or deprive 'other' of whatever is coveted/envied.  
 
 Phthonos will even drive a man (i.e., Cain) to murder his own brother, to "murder" the Holy God (i.e., Nimrod, Karl Marx) and Jesus Christ God Incarnate (Nietzsche).
 
 After ancient Greece had been overtaken by the spirit of poneros, the egalitarian, collectivist, or leveling impulse served to help relieve an envy-torn culture by leveling all men down to the lowest common denominator.  This was enforced by character destruction and the threat of ostracism.
 
 "...one had to watch not only the malevolent actions of envious friends and enemies, but the very real threat of ostracism by the democratic community.  Philanthropy had much less to do with (love of man) as it had with....avoiding other people's phthonos of one's success."  (Death by Envy, p. 14) 
 
 The fifth type of envy is vaskonia or Evil Eye (ophthalmos poneros) and means something even more malignant than phthonos.    Vaskonia bespeaks an evil spirit associated with demonic possession and the malign touch or glance of which leaves a soiled imprint and implies instant victimization and death.   Vaskonia is inherently sudden, meaning one wrong word, one wrong expression, or the impulse of a moment is all it takes to become the victim of the Evil Eye.
 
 As a whole, Scripture combines envy with hatred of the Holy God and one's brother, which means that there can be no love whatsoever where there is envy and hatred in one's heart.
 
 Today increasing numbers of Americans at every level of society, on both left and right, Christian and secular, are controlled by their passions unfettered from the restraint of transcendent moral law.   Adding to the problem are culturally relevant church models attended by thousands of Americans that cater to felt-needs and self-indulgent emotional feel-goodism (2 Tim. 4: 1-220).  Thus America is "a nation ruled by its passions," said Reb Bradley, author of "Born Liberal Raised Right."  This is why  heinous acts,
 
 "...of casual disregard for life, unheard of fifty years ago, have become a familiar item on the evening news; students killing classmates, children murdering their playmates....these gruesome crimes are merely symptomatic of a breakdown of moral fiber..."  ( pp. 2-3)
 
  The most frightening aspect of America's descent into moral imbecility, narcissism, heresy, apostasy, pathological lying, and lawlessness is that our society is being overtaken by "ponerological processes."   Through the White House, State Department and other federal agencies, legislatures, media, Hollywood, courts, academia, pentagon, seminaries and even pulpits, the spirit of poneros is encompassing our society, suppressing and demonizing orthodox Christians, faithful Jews and other morally informed people, and overspreading our nation with a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon."  This will lead inevitably to a tyranny of evil, persecution and martyrdom:
 
 "The New Martyrs' example and their legacy is precious, because in this, 21st century, it will be the turn of Western Christians to experience martyrdom. In Western Europe they will be persecuted by the unholy alliance between the postmodern, Christophobic velvet totalitarianism of the therapeutic hyper-state, and a resurgent Islam which already accounts for a quarter of all newborns in France. In the United States they will be persecuted for refusing to accept the destruction of the moral foundation of the society, currently epitomized by abortion, by "gay marriage," and by the ever-expanding speech and thought codes. Instead of being thrown to the lions or sent to Siberia, the resisters will be subjected--by some monstrous mechanism devised by an ever more activist judiciary--to the mandatory "sexual diversity orientation sessions," or feminist-led pro-abortionist "right-to-choose education workshops," or "immigrant rights sensitivity training," after which the continuing refusal to recant will lead to compulsory "therapy" and forced medication. This scenario is not farfetched on either side of the Atlantic. Western Christians should be prepared for martyrdom."  (ibid, Srdja Trifkovic)

Judgment
 
 In "Idols for Destruction" Herbert Schlossberg proposes that we use idolatry as a framework for comprehension of the evil and persecution sweeping over and through our post-Christian society. (p. 34)   The biblical explanation for moral imbecility and narcissism in connection with the end of society resides in the concept of judgment upon an idolatrous people (Ro. 1:28-32):  
 
 "Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you...saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known..."   (Deut. 13: 13; Judges 19: 22, 20:13; 1 Sam. 1:16, 2:12, 10:27, 25:17, 25:25, 30:22; 2 Sam. 16:7, 20:1, 23:6; 1 Kings 21:10, 21:13; 2 Chron. 6:15, 13:7)
 
 Scripture depicts a societies' people as either having submitted themselves to the Triune God or else as idolaters (sons of Belial) who having rebelled against Him have been delivered by Him over to worthless, useless, hardened, loveless minds.  This is how the Old Testament portrays Israel.  Israel had become an evil nation of idolaters fully deserving the judgment the Lord brought against it.  Its' rebellion was accompanied by a turning to idols (which can also be idols of mind such as scientism and evolutionary cosmogonies) and this idolatry brought the nation to it's' end.
 
 The Decalogue shows that the beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over the Holy Trinity and neighbor). The will of the proud man is not in submission to the Trinity but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride leads to contempt for truth, law, wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, institutions and other people in combination with any or all of the following vices: pathological lying, treachery, murderous thoughts, gluttony, greed, covetousness, lust, hate, cheating, promiscuity, sadism, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, adultery, theft and the dehumanization of other people resulting in psychological and physical slavery, population control schemes, abortion, brutality, terror, mass-murder (genocide) and man-made famines.
 
 In the final analysis, malice and envy towards the Holy Trinity compels man to destroy creation and to annihilate his God-given soul/spirit by imagining himself as 'one' with the evolving universe of matter and energy. This is the definition of damnation, said Fr. Aquaro. Hell is not a punishment meted out by a hateful Holy God as some would think, but an absolute refusal of a pardon granted all mankind. It is impossible to receive good from a person one envies, and so it is that one cannot be saved if one resents the Holy Triune God. This is the message of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-32 when the elder brother refused to enter the house upon his brother's return. It is also the underlying meaning of CS Lewis's pointed observation that the door to hell will be slammed and locked from inside:
 
 "The man wakes from the final struggle of death, in absolute loneliness...Not a hint, not a shadow of anything outside his consciousness reaches him...Soon misery will beget on his imagination a thousand shapes of woe, which he will not be able to rule, direct, or even distinguish from real presences." (C.S. Lewis: George MacDonald, an Anthology, p. 61)

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

The Evil Eye of Envy & Americas' Progressive Ruling Class

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Evolutionary Cosmologies & Unfettered Evil: the connections

In  “Made Peace With It” Before Aborting" Sarah Terzo quotes a pregnant Planned Parenthood worker who chose to kill her baby as saying the following:

"I felt this entity within me, flooding me with immense strength and love… While pregnant, there was also the feeling that I was never alone. I spent a lot of time lying on my bed with my hand on my belly letting the buzz of contentment vibrate through me (but) I am selfish and I know it. I want to travel the world and be a perpetual student. I know that, from my perspective, having a child would mean giving up many of my dreams, and until I am as joyful about the prospect of becoming a parent as I am about my other pursuits, I can’t give a child what he/she deserves" and though "I was amazed by the creation occurring within me. .…" I realized that having "an abortion is not always traumatic. If you can get beyond societal shame and expectation, you might find a message just waiting to be discovered. I never turned away from the fact that I would be ending a potential life. Facing and accepting this was the most important thing I could’ve done to prepare myself for my abortion....This might sound strange to some, but I actually talked with the being inside of me. I made peace with it. I knew that there was a reason for this pregnancy and it wasn’t about becoming a mother.”  (LifeNews.com, Nov. 21, 2014)

In the face of this shocking evil most Americans, and this includes large numbers of Christians, no longer know what to say because the Christian Church has for the most part, failed in its' duty to teach and defend the eternally unchanging Truth of God, His Moral Law (Ten Commandments), the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the fall and sin nature of all men and women and their desperate need of redemption and salvation.  Thus many Christians either do not know or are in denial of the highly uncomfortable truth that it is the unfettered sin nature---their own and that of other people--- that is responsible for America's growing tyranny of evil.  

So in the eyes of the Holy Triune God Who created man in His spiritual image, what are the primary sins of the woman who freely willed the murder of her baby?  To begin, the practice of abortion by both Christians and non-Christians,

"...is spiritual prostitution to an idol, defiles God's sanctuary and profanes His holy name. God alone is the Author of life and it is not the creature's prerogative to question the Creator's wisdom in bringing to life a fellow human being at conception. Whenever men disregard their Creator's wise judgment by destroying His innocent creation, they are serving another god. They are, in fact, spiritually prostituting themselves to the idolatrous self whom they believe is wiser in its value judgments." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)

Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image (Gen 9:5–6; ESV)

The Planned Parenthood worker is guilty of spiritually prostituting herself to idolatrous self (love of self; narcissism), and from ancient days such idolatry has led to abortion (murder) and all other forms of evil including lust for power over and domination of other people, property, and resources (ancient pagan despots; modern pagan Communists, Socialists, Progressives); unrelenting war in pursuit of these goals, speech control, shocking cruelty, deceit, treachery, sodomy, bestiality, pedophilia, pederasty, incest, slavery and individual and mass murder.  In our own time for instance, science has become the instrument of idolatrous man's will issuing in the elevation of science and evolutionary thinking above the Revealed Word of God.

Defiant science-adulating evolutionary theists and progressive creationists insist on displacing the Genesis account of creation by forcing the wildly popular Big Bang into the Bible, the inspired, written Word of God.   However, not only does the Big Bang 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 creation as evolutionary speculators hold. 

For instance, when teaching about marriage, Jesus said that at the beginning of creation God:

 “made them male and female. … For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” So they are no longer two, but one(Mark 10:6–8).

Here Jesus quoted Genesis 1:27 and Genesis 2:24 about a real first man and first woman who were the first couple, and this is the basis for marriage between one man and one woman today.  Moreover, Adam (the first man) was the Holy God's spiritual image-bearer right from the start.  Evolution teaches instead that a whole population of humans eventually evolved from ape-like creatures.  Adam however, was fully person, fully man, fully embedded soul within flesh (body) right from the beginning, hence Church Father Tertullian condemns child sacrifice, saying that no matter how it is rationalized, it is still murder:

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

Evolutionary cosmologies are as ancient as the practices of men worshipping themselves as gods and of child sacrifice, sodomy, incest, and many other evils.  In fact, evolutionary thinking facilitates evil since if Darwin in particular and evolutionary thinking in general is right, then there was no fall so no sin nature and man is either a trousered ape or bio-machine.  As well, 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)  

If man is nothing but an excited node of evolution in process of evolutionary ascent with neither hope of physical resurrection nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world, hence no fear of Judgment and hell,  then he is free to be evil.  So why not euthanize the elderly?  And why should Obama and his henchmen respect and abide by the Constitution rather than do whatever they want to do? Why should parents not allow their children to be taught evolutionary science, daily absorb the violent messages within most video games, rap music, and hard rock? And why ought children brought up on evolutionary science and violence not brutally attack each other and their parents?  Why should sexually-perverted adults not sexually pervert children, toss unwanted babies into trash bins, and use the force of perverted, meaningless law to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others? Why not redefine sodomy, pedophilia, pederasty, bestiality and lesbianism as 'gay' and then marry 'gay' couples in Washington's National Cathedral? (Washington National Cathedral to Wed Same-Sex Couples, Ben Brumfield, CNN, Jan. 9, 2013)

 And if you're the Planned Parenthood worker why not kill your unborn baby if its' life interferes with your selfish ambitions?   Among the idolatrous social elite of Punic Carthage for example, the institution of child sacrifice (murder) was a common practice and may have assisted in the consolidation and maintenance of family wealth, of eliciting favors from the gods, and as a convenient way of disposing of unwanted and illegitimately conceived babies.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Large numbers of Westerners both within and without the church now reject the Genesis account and believe instead that modern secular (neo-pagan and mystical pantheist) science has proven the earth and cosmos to be billions of years old, and that every living thing, from fish to dogs, apes and humans, evolved from a single cell which itself is the result of combination of chemicals.  Most believe that primordial matter resulted from the Big Bang. Certain high profile Christians like Pope Francis, Hugh Ross and the influential theologians and scholars who support them, teach that God is both the energizing force behind the Big Bang and the director of evolutionary process.

Moral Relativism

The Big Bang/ billions of years view results in a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else – maybe divine supermen, god-men, super robots or cosmic beings – but nothing can be said about transgender, 'gay,' and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by the inexplicable explosion of a Cosmic Egg which may or may not involve a stumbling god shaped and molded by theologians who require Him to ignite the Big Bang.  

Biomachines and Trousered Apes

With regard to man's inner person, his soul/spirit, 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 – free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience. He is a fleshy androgynous robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

 The denial of the literal and historic meaning of the Genesis account is foundationally the result of imposing neo-pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies (i.e., Big Bang) upon the Bible.' Thus, it has baneful consequences which don't just stop with Genesis, but adversely affect the entirety of Scripture and the entirety of Western and American society too. The atheist Frank Zindler enthusiastically agrees:

"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 savior. 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)

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned people have been pointing to the connections between evolutionary thinking and the spreading epidemic of narcissism, moral insanity, hatred, violence, despair, paranoia, madness, 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.

As Zindler rightly concludes, evolution is the death knell of Christianity, hence the death knell of the uniquely radical definition of man as person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons. From this it follows that evolution is also the death knell of our Constitutional Republic since our inalienable (God given) rights are for persons, not trousered apes or biomachines.

As the socially destructive consequences of evolution, moral relativism and unfettered sin reverberate throughout the church and society our age increasingly becomes an age of idolatrous worship of self, defiance against God and a spreading tyranny of evil as self-idolaters increasingly demand the sacrifice of other people, their children, property, rights and even their lives on altars of self-gratification.

Deliver Us, O Lord, from Evil, Violent Men

In "Heather has Two Textbooks,"  Malcolm A. Kline writes that while today's parents of public school children may feel besieged by alternative lifestyles, one public school teacher doesn’t think the literature available to them is diverse enough:
 
“It takes a lot of work to find books that include same-gender parents, step-parents, foster or adoptive children, or other nontraditional families as background in an adventure tale, a friendship parable, or a holiday romp; nontraditional families are either the topic of the story or, more likely, not included at all,” Willow McCormick writes in the summer issue of Rethinking Schools magazine. “When two-parent, heterosexual families are presented as the norm in story after story, near [year] in and year out, an insidious message is conveyed: Families that don’t conform to this structure are not normal.”  (academia.org, July 4, 2014)
 
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)

According to the teacher, the two-parent, one male, one female marriage is insidious.  Pushing aside her sophistry pretending to be rational discourse is the audacious self-righteous hypocrisy of the sovereign 'god-man,'  a self-centered dissimulator who implies the evil concept that man has no immutable nature since he is not created but rather the product of evolution, hence always and ever “becoming.” Thus pointing out to people of evil intentions that there has never been such a thing as sodomitic marriage in history is superfluous since man’s nature is fluid because the nihilistic ‘god’ Evolution rolls on and on, changing the Bible, demolishing truth, purpose, meaning, norms, moral law, one man one woman marriage, national boundaries, Constitutional rights, gender, and all else.
 
This is the satanically inverted philosophy of violence and nihilism 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, and the Constitution become whatever God-hating agents of violence and the mobs in back of them want them to be from moment to moment.

What this has 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) 

The Dark 'god' Evolution

"Rescue me, Lord, from evildoers; protect me from the violent, who devise evil plans in their hearts and stir up war every day.They make their tongues as sharp as a serpent’s; the poison of vipers is on their lips. Keep me safe, Lord, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from the violent, who devise ways to trip my feet. The arrogant have hidden a snare for me; they have spread out the cords of their net and have set traps for me along my path."  Psalm 140

Evolutionary scientism has amply demonstrated itself as a virulently anti-human, pathologically destructive, demonically murderous worldview. Marching under its banner, 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 man 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.  Wearing the evolutionary "ring of power" 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 the 'god' 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 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)

With the total animalization of 'other' here in America 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 is being demanded now for late-term abortions and will be legalized in New York by the abortion-expanding Women’s Equality Act,  is the death of babies,

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

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.

 Deicide

After two mystical encounters with the evil spirit Zarathustra, the dark prophet Nietzsche announced the "death of the Christian God." Dubbing himself the Antichrist, Nietzsche proclaimed:

"The greatest recent event – that 'God is dead,' that the belief in the Christian God has ceased to be believable – is even now beginning to cast its first shadows over Europe; however, few really understood " what has really happened here, "and what must collapse now that this belief has been undermined – all that was built upon it, leaned on it, grew into it; for example, our whole European morality." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 433)

Men have murdered the Triune God and usurped His throne, thus today we are living in the days of  de Sades, Nietzsches, Marx's and Callicles 'god-men' of violence who, ecstatic with the voluptuous delight of destruction which rolls humans into satanic depths keep pushing society to the brink of social chaos and suicide:

“When two-parent, heterosexual families are presented as the norm in story after story, near [year] in and year out, an insidious message is conveyed: Families that don’t conform to this structure are not normal.”  

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) 

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."

The Wrath of God

According to John MacArthur, things are falling apart because God has abandoned our society on a wide scale.   The moral chaos and confusion we experience in our nation happens because God has removed His restraining grace on a wide scale and given sinners over to their own choices and the consequences of those choices. No Scripture more directly confronts this abandonment and its consequences than Romans 1 does. Here is the most graphic and the most comprehensive discussion of what it means to be abandoned by God. God’s wrath is already at work in our culture. We’re not waiting for it, we are currently experiencing it.

The first indication in a society of the wrath of abandonment is sexual immorality (vs. 24). When a society becomes pornographic, this wrath is in effect. When men and women are abandoned by God, lusts dominate their hearts, leading to impurity, and the bodies follow in most dishonorable ways.

Step two is in verse 26. “For this reason God gave them over…here’s the second step…to degrading passions.” Now degradation enters the picture.  The degrading passions can be defined as gross affections, vile desires, perversion, or even inversion.  Plain and simple, lesbianism, homosexuality.  When a society exalts homosexuality, lesbianism and sodomy, it is sinking deeper.

Verse 27 adds, “In the same way, also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another…men with men, committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error."  What is the due penalty of their error? That they receive venereal disease, AIDS. That’s going to escalate, too, in this wrath of abandonment.

The third step is in verse 28. “Just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer…" God gave them over to a depraved mind.”  What is a depraved mind? The word literally means tested and found useless, disqualified for its intended purpose, a non-functioning mind. Reasoning is so corrupted that it is crippled. The intellectual faculty can no longer function because the conscience is depraved. The moral law of God written in the heart has been literally stomped and replaced with cultural immorality.  And so, says verse 28, they do the things which are not proper, not moral. So immorality goes in every direction and now they can’t find their way back because the mind is so corrupt. People don’t think right. People’s brains don’t follow the paths that they should. They advocate all the wretched things and depreciate all the virtuous things. And what flows out of this pornographic, homosexual, depraved culture? All evil…verse 29, “All unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice, gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful inventors of evil.” They even come up with new forms of evil.

The wrath of God is already operating in our culture:

".....God has abandoned our society because our society has first abandoned God. There is no surer and no sadder evidence of a corrupted, wicked abandoned society than when that society will not tolerate anger against sin. Our society won’t tolerate anger against sin. Our society feeds on sin and wants no one to deny it its iniquities. And so, here we are under the wrath of God’s abandonment. It isn’t like it once was. Restraining grace has been pulled back and this society gets more immoral, more homosexual and more depraved every day. And why?  The major reason is summed up in one statement. “We suppress the truth.”  (When God Abandons a Nation: Romans 1:18-32, John MacArthur, Grace to You, August 20, 2006)

The Spirit of Our Age & Antichrist

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He fascinates men and they excitedly declare they have seen,

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

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

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

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

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

At long last,

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

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

America's Ruling Class Beast

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Birth of the Beast

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

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

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

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

The Prototype

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

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

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

Building a base

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

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

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

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

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

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

America's Rising Beast

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

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

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

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

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

In this light we can see why:

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

Further examples of America's Ruling Class Beast:

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

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

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

Depravity

The Beasts' conscience is depraved, and this is one of the most evil and destructive forces in any society.   In his Commentary on Psalm 33/2, 8, St. Augustine notes that a depraved conscience is the miserable condition of all whose pride makes them refuse to face their own conscience lest they be overwhelmed by the wickedness they find there. (Day by Day with Saint Augustine, Donald X. Burt, p. 107)

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

Ultimately, the Beasts' depraved conscience is the result of a strong will determined to have its’ own way, thus St. Augustine points to a wicked will as the cause of all evil and suffering. This is because the depraved companions of the wicked will are pride, covetousness, envy and lust for power over other people.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ezekiel 9: How it Relates to Damnable Heresy, Idolatry, Apostasy & Judgment

The primary tactic employed by theologians eager to accommodate themselves, the Revealed Word, the Bible and the Christian Church to modern science and evolutionary thinking is predictable. It is the argument that evolution is entirely compatible with the Bible when we see the Revealed Word and/or literal and historic aspects of Genesis, especially within the first three chapters, as allegory and myth.   This is the argument embraced and advanced by many compromising theologians and intellectuals today.   By way of this tactic they invalidate the Word of God so they may teach the science and evolutionary theories of man:

"You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophecy of you: 'This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far away from Me.  But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men." (Matthew 15:6-9) 

Of the many contemporary pastors and Christian intellectuals who resort to this tactic is mega-church pastor Timothy J. Keller. With a position paper Keller published with the theistic evolutionary organization Bio Logos he joined the ranks of apostatizing Protestant and Catholic priests and Christian intellectuals stretching back to the Renaissance.  (A response to Timothy Keller's 'Creation, Evolution and Christian Laypeople," Lita Cosner, Sept. 9, 2010, creation.com)

The slippery-slide of certain highly influential Renaissance Christians into apostasy began when they gave into the temptation to embrace a non-literal, non-historical view of Genesis on behalf of two ancient occult traditions: Hermetic magic and occult Kabbalah.

In "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), writes that some disgruntled Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science – the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through ritual procedures  related to the quest for spiritual evolution (deification) 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)

Occult traditions and esoteric sciences include, but are not limited to, spiritualism (contact with spirits), alchemy, astrology, divination, Hermeticism, Kabbalah and evolutionary biology.

Implied in Hermeticism is an inverted exegesis teaching biological and spiritual evolution of the adept from lower to higher states of existence:

Human beings are themselves the product of a long spiritual evolutionary process that moves from ‘creeping things’ to fish, mammels, birds and then people. Humans can-—through occult knowledge and extraordinary ability-—continue this evolutionary process and become daemons, then gods, and finally planets or stars.” (The Making of the New spirituality, James A. Herrick, p. 40)

Like Hermeticism, Kabbalah posits an inverted exegesis but with the difference that it requires the invalidation and subversion of the teachings of Moses. Thus Kabbalah not only invalidates and inverts the Genesis account of creation but the Revealed Word relationship of created man to His Creator by rendering human beings virtually divine.  As with Hermeticism, elite men can attain apotheosis since man is not created but rather the conscious product of unseen natural forces such as evolution.

Kabbalah suggests that elites may destroy the God of the Old Testament, the God “who created us, made us breathe, eat, reproduce...write books; who is responsible for our historical existence " as he is a “blind, arrogant, and merciless” God, a vile God who created space and time. (Herrick, pp. 41-42)

Since activation of the divine powers of the living God is the goal, elite practitioners of Kabbala conceptually destroy the living God and replace Him with a god-force for this purpose. The man-controlled god-force can only do such things as create and ignite cosmic eggs (Big Bang) and direct evolution as it is entirely dependent upon its shapers and handlers who control and manage divine powers and teach that human beings are not created but rather emanated (evolved) from nature or the god-substance.

In this light we can see that the idea that man is not created but is rather the conscious product of unseen natural forces (i.e., natural selection, evolution) is not a recent discovery of modern science, nor is the invalidation of Scripture and the Genesis account 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 Revealed Word and/or 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 invalidate the Revelation of God is to contradict and usurp His authority, 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 because salvation is only by faith through Jesus Christ, the only mediator between the living God and humankind (1 Tim. 2:5).  Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life, the 'gate' that 'is small' and the way that is 'narrow that leads to life." (Matthew 7:14)
 
According to Peter (2 Peter 2:1) apostatizing priests will work among the faithful, teaching damnable heresies that deny the Lord, cause the fall of men into confusion and 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)

In this light we can understand why a theologically-confused albeit scientifically-endarkened evolutionary 'Christian' would wonder aloud on a public discussion forum who or what the six men of Ezekiel 9 are.  Since he believes that Scripture's book of beginnings---the key to understanding the rest of Scripture--- is nothing but a collection of pre-scientific myths, it makes sense that he neither understands who and what the six men are but more importantly, the ominous portent of Ezekiel. 
 
So what is the meaning of the foreboding message of Ezekiel, who are the six men and their purpose and how does this relate to our own age of damnable heresy, idolatry and deepening and spreading apostasy?

In Ezekiel 1, we learn that the voice of God has come to his prophet Ezekiel by the Holy Spirit.  According to Matthew Henry, Ezekiel's visions,

"....seem to have been sent to possess the prophet's mind with great and high thoughts of God. To strike terror upon sinners. To speak comfort to those that feared God, and humbled themselves. In ver. 4-14, is the first part of the vision, which represents God as attended and served by a vast company of angels, who are all his messengers, his ministers, doing his commandments. This vision would impress the mind with solemn awe and fear of the Divine displeasure..."  (Matthew Henry's Concise Commentaries, Ezekiel 1:1-14)

Ezekiel 9 is a continuation of visions bespeaking the coming judgment of Israel. In this vision Ezekiel sees angelic executioners as issuing forth to do the work of His judgment. Possibly there may be an allusive reference to the Chaldeans as the actual human instruments of judgment.
 
The Biblical explanation of the end of societies uses the concept of judgment rather than spatial explanations such as rise and fall.   According to the Revealed Word, either a society is collectively submitted to the Will and Authority of God or it is in rebellion against Him. The book of Ezekiel portrays Israel as having become a rebellious, idolatrous, therefore evil nation fully deserving the judgment about to be meted out by God.
 
Israel's rebellion against God was accompanied by a turning inward of the souls of men to ‘self’ and idols. Idolatry in its larger meaning is properly understood as any substitution of what is ‘created’ for the Creator. In this sense, idols can be anything from  worship of intellect and whatever it conceives (pride of mind) as well as the vehicle for its transmission---science-- to worship of nature (i.e., particles, void, matter, energy) and unseen forces (i.e., change, laws, gravity, natural selection, evolution) to wealth, power, status, pornography and sexual-gratification, sports,  and the embrace of ancient occult sciences such as Hermeticism and esoteric Kabbalah in pursuit of self-perfection and apotheosis.

Today Christendom and America are spiritually darkened, storm-tossed oceans of idolatry punctuated here and there by tiny, flickering candles of light indicative of the faithful.  Over and across the entire denominational spectrum of America's man-centered, idolatrous church,

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

Large numbers of secular pagan Americans and contemporary Christian's worship the 'god' Evolution in many guises such as the god-or-christ energy inside their own minds:

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

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

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

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

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)

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 for, it cannot become a reality to you..." (The Fourth Dimension, Vol. 1, Yonggi Cho, 1979, 9-35, vol. 2, 18-33)

We are witnessing the secularization, paganization and evaporation of orthodox Biblical theism and faithful Judaism to which must be added rebellion against every vestige of authority, the privatization of truth and an inversion of creation and history caused by occult science and evolutionary thinking:

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

In John 5, Jesus Christ addresses all people, including evolutionary theologians and their flocks,  who have elevated self, pride of mind and other idols (i.e., the force within, occult science and evolution) above the writings of Moses, thus are unable to believe him:

“....if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” John 5:45-47

Increasing numbers of Christians cannot believe Jesus because they have invalidated His Revelation with legions of idols, particularly the magic science and evolution Baals.   In their foolish defiance they have entered into a league with death.  They have made a pact with hell for they have placed their hope in vain inventions, idols and worthless teachings of men. (Isaiah 28:15)

"When also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers; and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord, nor yet the works which He had done for Israel. Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the Lord's anger...they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths." Judges 2:10-13
 
Whatever a man places at the top of his pyramid of values is ultimately the Baal he serves. The ultimacy of that service profoundly affects not only how he thinks, speaks and acts  but where he will spend eternity.  When the society around him also turns away from the living God to ‘self’ and Baals, as the post-Christian West and America have done, it is an evil, idolatrous society heading for judgment and destruction, hence the six executioners of Ezekiel’s vision sent by God to carry out His judgment against,

"rebellious people, deceitful children, children unwilling to listen to the LORD's instruction"  (Isaiah 30:9) for the love of truth is not in them that they might be saved.  Thus the "wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness." Romans 1:18

Evolutionary Christians cannot believe Moses, so how will they believe Jesus?

 "For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?" John 5:46-47
 
And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. ”  Luke 24:27

Today increasing numbers of Western and American theologians, seminarians and intellectuals reject belief in Moses in favor of science and biological evolution. 
 
Pope Francis, Timothy Keller, Leonard Sweet, Hugh Ross and many others fall into this category.    And having fallen into the scientism and evolution quagmire, they deride, ridicule, and criticize faithful Christians who refuse to fall into the quagmire away as well.

Over and across the entire denominational spectrum, it is the faithful---those who love Truth---who in their stand unflinching stand against evolution are harshly criticized, ridiculed, and condemned by willful compromisers for their 'anti-science religionism, narrow-mindedness, fundamentalism, cultural isolationism, and anti-intellectualism' which compromisers call,
 
“....the rejection of science,” and then refer to this as “textbook evidence of an unyielding ignorance on the part of the religious.” (Total Capitulation: The Evangelical Surrender of Truth, Dr. Mohler,October 25, 2011) 
 
Dr. Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary stands strong against evolutionary compromise:
 
At the very least, the acceptance of evolutionary theory requires that the first two chapters of Genesis be read merely as a literary rendering that offers no historical data. But, of course, the injury does not end there. If evolution is true, then the entire narrative of the Bible has to be revised and reinterpreted. The evolutionary account is not only incompatible with any historical affirmation of Genesis, but it is also incompatible with the claim that all humanity is descended from Adam and the claim that in Adam all humanity fell into sin and guilt. The Bible’s account of the Fall and its consequences is utterly incompatible with evolutionary theory. The third chapter of Genesis is as problematic for evolutionary theory as the first two.” (Creation vs. Evolution — The New Shape of the Debate, Dr. Mohler, February 1, 2011)
 
Paul warned of the days when people would not tolerate the eternally unchanging Authority of God and sound doctrine, but would instead, surround themselves with worldly teachers who would tickle their ears. (2 Tim 4:1-3) 
 
Those days are here.
 
According to Benjamin Wiker and Scott Hahn, authors of the meticulously researched book, "Politicizing the Bible," a great cosmological shift away from the supernatural Genesis account ex nihilo toward an anti-supernatural and wholly pagan or secular understanding of the universe, God, man, philosophy, science, and morality occurred in the seventeenth century.   The research efforts of the two men take them deep into the Middle Ages and Renaissance to show that the appropriation, deconstruction and paganization of scripture and invention of the historical-critical method taken for granted at modern divinity schools worldwide, originated with politically motivated interpreters.  Among them were early Popes, Machiavelli, Marsilio of Padua, Henry VIII, Thomas Hobbes,  Descartes and Spinoza, who sought an empire of science. 

Moving to the Renaissance and the book, "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), reveals the 'temper of that age' as a spirit of rebellion against the Holy Triune God and His created order.  This is why certain highly placed, influential Renaissance Christian theologians, mystics and scholars, having discovered ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts from the time of Babylon, studied and translated these ancient texts, resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science – the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and spiritual powers through ritual procedures such as transcendental meditation iand spiritual evolution s the best proof of the divinity of Christ as a force of nature. 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) 

The defiant embrace of magic science and evolutionary conceptions undergirding occult traditions such as mystical Hinduism, Buddhism, Egyptian Hermeticism and evolutionary Kabbalah paved the way for the rationalism of the European Enlightenment.  

Rationalism glorified the unregenerate conscience and darkened intellect of man rather than the Word of God.   These seeds of corruption blossomed into a huge upsurge of anti-Christian endeavor resulting in the subordination of the Word of God to the findings of magic science and evolutionary thinking which opened the door for yet more corruption in the 19th century---theological liberalism (evolutionary pantheism) and 'higher criticism.'
 
Theological liberalism first developed in Germany.  Its first real manifestation was at the University of Tubingen where Ferdinand Baur (1792-1860) had formed a school of theology for the purpose of raising doubts about the Bible.  This tactic was designed to undermine the Revealed Word as the exclusive fount of truth.  Among areas which came under suspicion were the Genesis account, the person and deity of Christ, the fall and human sin, the authority of Scripture, the transcendence of God, the Way of spiritual salvation, and the doctrine of the Christian Church.  (From Old Gnosticism to New Age, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 28:4-29:1, 2005, pp. 32-33)
 
The theological liberalism inaugurated at Tubingen 'Christianized' the cosmological shift and the magic science and evolutionary pantheism sweeping over our nation in many guises today: Teilhard's New Religion, Leonard Sweets quantum spirituality, the Quantum Void posited by modern physicists and occult New Age for example. 
 
Theological liberalism owed much to the occult Hermetic pantheist philosophy of George Hegel (1770-1811).   Hegel was a philosophical heir of ancient occult traditions and an important member of an occult brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance.  His early writings were very much influenced by Christoph Oetinger (1702-1782), the gnostic occult Kabbalist and disciple of Renaissance Hermetic-Kabbalists such as Emanuel Swedenborg and Jakob Boehme (1575-1624). Hegels dialectic, or pantheist theory of historical evolution, dovetailed neatly with liberal theology’s evolutionary pantheism and its’ outrageous claim that Christianity was a hybrid religion of the Near East. (ibid)

Somewhat later, Karl Marx secularized Hegel’s dialectic for his own evolutionary conception, dialectical materialism. 
 
This period also saw a more forceful appearance of 'higher criticism,' the evil-twin of theological liberalism.   Higher criticism cast suspicion upon the authorship and dating of the books of the Bible in an attempt to undermine the truth-claims of Scripture.  Such unsanctified exploration led to an enquiry into the identity of the historical Jesus, typified in the anti-supernaturalistic book, "The Life of Jesus," written in 1835 by Baur's pupil, D.F. Strauss (1808-1874). (ibid)
 
When Darwin published his theory, theological liberals (progressives) eagerly embraced it, not because they actually believed it, but because behind its’ ‘science’ façade they could openly embrace the occult evolutionary conceptions posited by ancient Egyptian Hermeticism and esoteric Kabbalah.
 
With these developments, the seal was set on a critical, rationalistic, and skeptical approach to the Word of God that elevates the unregenerate conscience and darkened intellect of man, magic  science, and Gnostic pagan evolution above the Word of God.  

This tragic development results in large flocks of misled sheep who cannot believe Moses (John 5:45-47) because the ministers who guide them are falling stars who in their arrogant ignorance reject as unscientific the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.  The atheist Frank Zindler conveys the logical consequences:

"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)

While most commentators identify Lucifer as the falling star, in his Concise Commentary Matthew Henry provides a second, human identity. Human falling stars are 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. On the opening of the bottomless pit, there arose a great smoke. The devil carries on his designs by blinding the eyes of men...putting out light and knowledge, and promoting ignorance and error. Out of this smoke there came a swarm of locusts, emblems of the devil's agents, who promote superstition, idolatry, error, and cruelty...the true believers...should be untouched (but) a secret poison and infection in the soul, should rob many others of purity, and....peace. The locusts had no power to hurt those who had the seal of God. God's all-powerful, distinguishing grace will keep his people from total and final apostacy." (Commentary on Revelation 9: 1-12)

 Since neither falling stars nor their misled flocks can believe Moses, they cannot believe the Word, God-Incarnate, our savior Jesus Christ.

In response to the spread of unbelief and the presence of false teachers, apostates and abominations infecting the Body of Christ our Lord said:

"Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit." Matthew 15:13-14

Evolutionary theists are blind guides leading the blind over the Gaderene cliffs. Thus blessed is the man who does not place his trust in blind guides who stray after heresies and abominations of desolation such as evolution (Psalm 40: 4-5) and exalt the works of their fallen imaginations against the knowledge of God. (2 Cor. 10:5).

Do not throw away your confidence in the Lord:

"it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised." (Hebrews 10:35-36)

The Kingdom of Darkness Triumphant: Church and Society

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

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

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

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

The Kingdom of Darkness

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Snakes Lie and Darwinism

The idea that man can become God was first whispered in Eve’s ear by the snake.  In “Ancient Paganism: The Sorcery of Fallen Angels” Ken Johnson, Th.D,  writes that the snake (Lucifer) persuaded pre-flood people to believe that the original Creator God did not exist since He had emptied Himself into creation (pantheism).  According to the snake, since all that actually exists is a creative animated God-force it is possible for each person to evolve into god since the god-energy is man’s mind or unconscious:

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

 In the words of Emergent Church leader Rob Bell, evolution is an energy that everything---including man---is plugged into.  Evolution is a,

"…. spark, an electricity that everything is plugged into. The Greeks called it zoe, the mystics call it 'Spirit,' and Obi-Wan called it 'the Force'.....This energy, spark, and electricity that pulses through all of creation sustains it, fuels it, and keeps it growing. Growing, evolving, reproducing..." (Love Wins, pp. 144-145)

Pre-flood people held very similar views to those espoused by Peck and Bell.  This is why early Church Father Tertullian describes both Greek pagans, who taught that by magic they would evolve into demons (highly evolved spirits of people who lived during the Golden Age) after death and pre-flood people as idolaters rather than atheists:

“….by magic, which is indeed only a second idolatry, wherein they pretend that after death they become demons, just as they were supposed in the first and literal idolatry to become gods.” Tertullian Treatise on the soul 57 (emphasis added)

 We learn in the Ancient Book of Jasher, a 3,000 year old non-inspired history referenced in Joshua 10:13; 2 Sam. 1:18, and 2 Tim. 3:8, that the idea that God does not exist was Lucifer’s original lie:

And they called to Noah, saying, Open for us that we may come to thee in the ark---and wherefore shall we die?  And Noah, with a loud voice, answered them….saying, Have you not all rebelled against the Lord, and said that he does not exist?” Jasher 6:18-19 (emphasis added)

Pre-flood people were idolaters.  They preferred ‘self’ to God and brethren.  They willfully chose to believe that the Creator God does not exist and that by various magic rituals which they had learned from the Watchers (Angels) they would change (evolve) into gods:

And Cainan…went to seek for himself a place where he might seize for himself a city.  And he found a writing which former generations had carved on the rock, and he read what was thereon, and he transcribed it and sinned owing to it; for it contained the teaching of the Watchers….And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he was afraid to speak to Noah about it lest he should be angry with him on account of it.” (Jubilees 8: 1-5, cited in Ancient Paganism: The Sorcery of the Fallen Angels, Ken Johnson, Th.D., p. 36, emphasis added)

God destroyed that world with a flood.  Only Noah and his family were saved, but whereas Noah re-established the worship of the one true God, in the post-flood world, his son Ham and his sons quickly fell back into pagan idolatry, the lie that man will change into god.  

Church Father Clement writes that it was Ham who rediscovered and resurrected pre-flood teachings from the Watchers:

 "Fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man.  After the flood Ham the son of Noah unhappily discovered this and taught it to his sons.  This became ingrained into the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians.  Ham died shortly after the fall of the Tower of Babel.  Nimrod, called Ninus by the Greeks, was handed this knowledge and by it caused men to go away from the worship of God and go into diverse and erratic superstitions and they began to be governed by the signs in the stars and motions of the planets." (Recognitions of Clement 4.26-29)

The theme which unites pre-flood paganism to ancient Sumeria (Babylonia) and modern evolutionary movements--- Darwinian humanism,  Teilhard's Hindu pantheist system, Big Bang assumptions, Luciferian Theosophy, liberal pantheist theology, occult pantheist New Age mysticism, and America's slide into apostasy are pride, defiance, and the myth of evolution.

In "Belief in God, Heaven and Miracles Down; Belief in Evolution Up," Christian Post reporter Jeff Schapiro reveals that the percentage of Americans who believe in God, heaven and miracles decreased in the last several years, according to poll results released Monday, while the percentage of people who believe in Darwin's theory of evolution is on the rise:

"A new Harris Poll found that nearly three-quarters (74 percent) of American adults believe in God, though that number is down from 2005, 2007 and 2009, when 82 percent believed in Him. Sixty-eight percent of people now say they are absolutely or somewhat certain God exists, though that number has decreased by 11 percentage points since 2003."  (christianpost.com, Dec. 19, 2013)

 Belief in the theory of evolution, on the other hand,

 "...has risen from 42 percent to 47 percent in the last eight years. Since 2003, the percentage of adults who say there is no God has increased from nine percent to 16 percent, and uncertainty as to whether there is a God has risen from 12 percent to 16 percent."

 In keeping with His Gospel, our Lord not only announced it but foretold the trials and tribulations that would encompass His followers.

The most lethal in our age is the spirit of rebellion that dresses self-worship and evolutionary nature religions in Christian clothing in an attempt to overhaul the Christian faith.

 

In "Apostasy in America: An Overview of Warning Signs in Our Time," Dr. Peter Jones, Professor of Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in California writes that in order for the,

"...pagan lie to succeed, it needs to look as much like the truth as it can. Hence the imperious necessity in the malevolent eschatology of spiritual darkness for the appearance of a new hybrid – 'Christian' paganism." (Jesus and the Den of Thieves, SCP Journal, Vol. 20:3-4, 1996, p. 15)

 The foundation of Christian paganism is Darwinism.  The essence of Darwinism constituting its’ particular nature is neo-pagan naturalism.   Naturalism advocates a phony ‘truth claim’ positing the nonexistence of the one God in three Persons, Heaven, hell, man as God's spiritual image-bearer, angels, demons, immutable truth, moral law, meaning, and purpose resulting in human beings who are no longer Imago Dei but rather conscious products of evolution, mere descendants of lower creatures: 

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, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Co,)

Despite claims of evolutionary theologians to the contrary, Darwinism  "destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma," so whether they know it or not, Christians who embrace Darwinism unwittingly deny the deity of Jesus Christ since if Darwinism is true then our Savior is not the Second Person of the Trinity, God Incarnate, the Word Who created ex nihilo but rather a conscious product of evolution (1 John 2:22). 

The Darwinian wrecking-ball does not stop there. 

If Darwinism is true, there was no fall, so Lucifer is not Satan, there is no Original Sin, no hell, no Judgment, and since men are not sinners in need of a Savior, there is no reason why the very worst of our kind need fear doing whatever they want to do, no matter how evil, while in this world.

If Darwinism is true and Jesus is a conscious product of evolution, then there was neither Incarnation nor Resurrection, thus no "new heaven, and a new earth'" where God "shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, neither crying, neither...pain: for the first things are passed." (Rev. 21: 1, 4)

In conclusion, if Darwinism is true, the one God in three Persons does not exist since He and His Revealed Word are myths invented by stone-age hominids,  all of which makes the faithful the most miserable people of all, for they are left with nothing.

“In the beginning was the Word….”

 J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece, the “Silmarillion” is the book of beginnings, the all-important Genesis account that sets the stage for all that follows in the towers trilogy:

 "There was Eru, the One, who in Arda is called Iluvatar; and he made first the Ainur, the Holy Ones, that were the offspring of his thought, and they were with him before aught else was made."  (p. 15)

 Just as the Genesis account opens with creation ex nihilo, so does Tolkien’s account. In the beginning was Illuvatar, the Word who was, is, and always will be:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God, and there was nothing made that was not made by Him.”

Iluvatar ‘thought,’ then he "sang living words," according to both Tolkien and CS Lewis in his "Magicians Nephew." As Iluvatar sings He instantaneously creates the things of His thought, thus all things are created in a precise order and after their own kind in six instantaneous acts of creation.

Returning to Genesis, we are told that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. God Incarnate is Jesus Christ, God made flesh, the fulfillment and perfection of all prophecy from the very beginning, starting with Adam and Eve who received the knowledge of a coming Redeemer as well as the knowledge that the world would be destroyed two times, once by water, once by fire. Thus Jesus Christ in His office as prophet is the Angel of Prophecy who spoke to Moses in the desert, revealing to him the Genesis account ex nihilo.

 Therefore, to embrace Darwinism is to logically deny all of the aforementioned as well as 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).

 To reject the deity of Jesus is to deny man’s dire need of our Savior, the Physician of our souls. All who deny the deity of Jesus Christ deny the Physician and are of the spirit of antichrist, thus they deny His prescription and assign themselves to outer darkness.

The Antichrist

 Vladimir Soloviev (1850-1900) was a brilliant Russian philosopher and theologian. In a gripping novel, “A Short Tale of the Antichrist” Soloviev offers both an amazingly accurate glimpse into the mind of the super-man who will become the Antichrist as well as illustrating the real obstacle to salvation, the refusal by proud, willful men to recognize and admit to their sinful condition.

Prior to his transformation by Satan, Soloviev describes the super-man as outwardly just, but within he is full of pride and is morally reprehensible:

 “.... He believes in God but loves nobody but himself. His relationship with Christ was quickly defined as one of superiority (for he will never) bow before Him like the most stupid of Christians (nor) mutter senselessly....’Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me’....’I, the bright genius, the superman! No, never!” (The Wrath of God: The Days of Antichrist, Livio Fanzaga, pp. 39-40)

 As the super-mans’ spiritual fall progresses, or evolves downward, instead of the former cold rational respect for Jesus Christ God Incarnate:

“.....there was born and grew in his heart, first, a kind of terror, and then a burning, choking and corroding envy and furious breath-taking hatred.” Devoured with envy of Jesus Christ he cries out “He rotted in the tomb, rotted like the lowest...” (ibid, pp. 40-41)

This is the moment the Evil One has been waiting for. He openly approaches the super-man and possesses him:

 “He saw those piercing eyes and heard...a strange voice, toneless...stifled, and yet clear, metallic and absolutely soulless as though coming from a phonograph.” Satan pours out his spirit, saying, “I ask nothing of you, and I will help you for your own sake...Receive my spirit...it gives birth to you in power. At these words...the superman’s lips opened of themselves, two piercing eyes came quite close to his face, and he felt a sharp, frozen stream enter into him and fill his whole being. And at the same time he was conscious of a wonderful strength, energy, lightness and rapture.” (p. 43)

 Soloviev masterfully portrays a striking contrast between the apostles of Christ and the Antichrist. The former receive the power of the living Word and are full of wisdom, virtue, truth, and courage while the latter receives the power of the devil and are full of nihilistic pride, contention, ingratitude, lies, burning envy, murderous hate, blasphemy, cursing, resentment, deception, covetousness, and perversion.

 The Antichrist, as described by Soloviev, suffers the same massively inflated pride and envy that transformed Lucifer into the devil. This same pride and envy animated Cain, Judas, Nimrod, the pantheist sorcerer Hegel, the occult Luciferian Illuminati who planned and instigated the bloody French Revolution; Madame Blavatsky, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, Lenin, Stalin, Teilhard de Chardin, the West’s “God is dead” theologians, the Jesus Seminar gnostics and too many others to be named.

 In the end, hell is the choice of proud, willful men, anti-christs who refuse to recognize and admit to their sinful condition. In affirmation, CS Lewis writes:

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

Beware Your Choices: Heaven is Real. So is the Hell Chosen by Marx

Over on the Conservative website Free Republic, the unrelenting war mounted by evolutionary atheists and their 'new' Christian counterparts against the essay "Falling Stars, Damnable Heresy, and the Spirit of Evolution" continues unabated and has caused the thread to top 1300 posts.

Evolutionary atheists and their 'new' Christian counterparts are of that 'new' race of evolved men long foretold and longed for by modernists such as Nietzsche, Marxist Communists, Fascists, utopianists and various humanists.   What is the New Man? Whereas the Apostle Paul referred collectively to the fallen Old Man of humanity and a resurrected New Man following Jesus, modernism's New Man is 'new' by virtue of his independence from the Triune God.   The New Man is not Imago Dei but rather the conscious product of evolution.  He is an evolving spirit who is his own reference point, meaning there is no mind, no authority, no meaning higher than his own.

New Men, whether 'Christian' or secular, willfully oppose their own word against the Word of God and reject the miraculous, historical and literal elements of the Bible, particularly of Genesis, in favor of natural science and evolution.  They persuasively argue that this scientifically enlightened course of action is entirely compatible with belief in God, though their God is nothing more than a man-controlled deity that jump-starts the Big Bang in order to set evolution in motion.

Despite prophetic warnings, “new” Christian theologians deform and twist the Scriptures to make them fit their own opinions and lack of faith, hoping thereby to give a pseudo-biblical authority to their evolutionary beliefs rather than allowing the Lord to say what He means:

Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it” (Deuteronomy 4:2).

Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar” (Proverbs 30:6).

"If any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life” (Revelation 22:19).

From past to present such practices have generated a plethora of heresies and Gnostic cults. This was in essence Christ’s view of the Pharisees:

In vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:9).

Despite the efforts of one sophistical 'new' Christian to disguise his atheism, arrogance and hostility behind a friendly smiley-faced mask, rather than opaque his mask is porous, meaning that telling statements keep slipping through.   For example:

 The issue here is whether any such “special revelation” qualifies as “natural science”?

 The real issue, the truth of the matter not-so-deftly implied by this example of arrogant, clumsy sophistry is that, like a long line of evolutionary atheists before him, the 'new' Christian is in rebellion against the God of Revelation as He revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ:

"Christianity is the most complete and perfect revelation we know of the nature of God and of God's will for man." The basic insights of the Christian faith "provide the best insights we have into the nature of man and of the crisis in which we find ourselves." (John Hallowell, 1950, Intellectual Conservative Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 53)

It is the living, personal God Who revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ that 'new' Christians and their secular counterparts are in rebellion against.   A nonliving, mindless God-force without Will that men can mold, shape, manage and speak for is just fine, as is a mortal Christ, a mere man who, like the New Man, is the conscious product of evolution.

 The truth is that evolutionary atheists and their 'new' Christian counterparts are not New Men but fallen Old Men, thus they prefer the word of sinful men over the Revelation of God and are the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from the beginning,

 “... has been characterized by a desire to be free from the burden of Christianity...As a rebellion against Christianity, its negative goal defined its positive form: the desire to remove the church and replace it with the state gave liberalism its structure, beliefs, and goals.” (Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Worship, Benjamin Wiker)

Wiker writes that as far back as the Renaissance the strong impulse to throw off the restraints of the personal God and Christianity was already at work in certain Churchmen and intellectuals, hence their eventual embrace of materialism (i.e., natural science,  naturalism, Darwinism, evolutionary biology, empiricism, methodological naturalism, reductionism):

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

 Contemporary New Men are rebels against the living, personal God of Revelation and of a mind with demonized antitheists such as Karl Marx and other revolutionaries who, though not the devil, did his work for him.

Marx, the father of the Communist Manifesto, declared that his war is against God and the world created by Him.  In his poem, “The Pale Maiden” he admits the existence of the God of Revelation, the existence of heaven, that he is Imago Dei, and further, that he knows hell exists but that eternal damnation is his willful choice:

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

 Marx's revolutionary comrade, Mikhail Bakunin, admits he is a Satanist:

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

 A Communist newspaper makes clear that Satanists are trying to snatch believers from God:

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

 The Satanic revolt, like supernatural Christian faith, is a movement of spirit but having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of pride, envy and lies, the 'god' of this world and inventor of evolutionary cosmogonies, naturalism, materialism, 'new' Christianity, and heresy. He is the author of rebellion, and the revelator of secrets contrived to damn unto hell.

 Satanic revolt is war against the supernatural Trinity...the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which in Bakunin’s words are the “cursed and fatal principle of authority.”

 Thus it proclaims the reign of negation: of God’s Revelation, creation ex nihilo, miracles, the divinity of Christ, immutable Truth, Moral Law, Imago Dei, Heaven, angels, the devil, demons and hell.

 The sentiment of the revolt is Satanic pride:

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

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

By his unintended confession, the 'new' Christian admits that he prefers the damning errors, heresy and sophistry of evolutionary thinking to what he derisively describes as the "so-called" Revelation of God and His will for men. This is why, in a further abuse of will, he insists on God’s Revelation to man being subordinate to natural science:

“The issue here is whether any such “special revelation” qualifies as “natural science”? The answer is: obviously not, and that is pretty much the only major point I’ve been hoping to make.”

From the time of Adam and Eve, proud, self-centered, rebellious men have been abusing the gift of will to choose self-gratification, service to themselves and whatever it is they want.   But beware your choice, your abuse of will, for at some unknown, unperceived moment it will become eternal. Heaven is real. So is the hell chosen by Marx.

How and Why Darwinism Paves the Way for Totalitarianism

In "Ruling class tramples consent of the governed," Christopher Adamo reports on the latest usurpation of power by our arrogant left-right ruling class. On November 5, Mike Pantelides became the first Republican Mayor elected since 1997 in Annapolis,

“…the very "blue" capital of the very "blue" state of Maryland. Like so much of the state, Annapolis has been under the uncontested control of Democrats for almost two decades. Nevertheless, the majority of voters had officially shown their preference for Pantelides, who should then be able to fulfill the purposes for which he was elected.” (Adamo, Renew America, Nov. 14, 2013)

 After sixteen years of unchallenged liberal dominance the Democrat City Council is advancing a measure that will overthrow the will of the people by stripping Pantelides of his official duties and authority, leaving him in an office that is ceremonial and inconsequential. In typical "Ruling Class" fashion,

Democrat Alderman Ross Arnett has attempted to rationalize the move on the grounds that overruling the will of the voters would "stabilize" management of the city. With glaring arrogance, Arnett essentially contends that the ability of the common people to determine how they will be represented by public office holders constitutes an annoyance to those in power who know better how to direct the affairs of the lowly masses. As such it must simply be overridden, and the voices of "We the People" swatted away like so many flies.”   

Given that our nation’s Founders did not shy away from the fact of human sinfulness, they would be dismayed but not shocked by the evidence of America’s overwhelming moral corruption, ignorance, dissolution and usurpation of power by America’s self-styled ‘new’ aristocracy, the Ruling Class. 

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

Rutherford reasoned that since all men are sinners, no man---whether king, prime minister or president (or ruling class) ---is superior to any other man.  This meant that no man is above the law; all are subject to the law without exception, thus all men must recognize that they are under the transcendent Law of God.  

Furthermore, as all men are created equal in the eyes of God, then worth, dignity and the right to life are conferred upon each human being at creation.  Thus all men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights from Him which no man can rightfully take away.

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

 In keeping with the Christian consensus, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin connected virtue and self-control with individual freedom and corruption and lack of self-control with anarchy and authoritarianism:

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

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

Today there is little virtue left in America as our age is an age of self-worship and defiance against God issuing into debauchery, sodomy, promiscuousness, lawlessness, pathological lying, heresy, open apostasy and occult oppression.

More than eighty years ago, America began falling away from its' founding Biblical-based worldview into what President Calvin Coolidge identified as "pagan materialism" (i.e., naturalism, evolutionary atheism, secular humanism, liberalism).

Fearing for the future of our Constitutional Republic he said in a speech delivered on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 5, 1926:

"Democracy is Christ's government in church and state…” "Here was the doctrine of equality, popular sovereignty, and the substance of the theory of inalienable rights....When we take all these circumstances into consideration, it is but natural that the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence should open with a reference to Nature's God and should close...with an appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world and an assertion of a firm reliance on Divine Providence...In its main feature the Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document. Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man — these are not elements which we can see and touch. They are ideals. They have their source and roots in the religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. "(Backfired: A Nation Born for Religious Tolerance No Longer Tolerates Religion, William J. Federer, pp. 270-271)

Fifty-one years later, British journalist William Rees-Mogg saw that the West had indeed lost its faith, and like a fish out of water or a drowning man was,

"...desperately thrashing around for lack of oxygen. Since the time of Christ there has been no period in which there has been the same feeling of...spiritual impoverishment." (Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture, Herbert Schlossberg, p. 2)

Today America resembles a spiritually-impoverished, storm-tossed dark ocean punctuated here and there by a few islands of light where faith in our Creator still exists.   But for the rest, God does not exist, and where He does not exist, truth and higher law do not exist. When men are no longer under the Law of God then man is the measure of all things, thus pathological lying, deception, arbitrary laws, power-struggles, viciousness, fear and oppression result. 

Either God is the Lawgiver or America’s arrogant left-right, morally corrupt Ruling Class and men and women like Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Hitler, Lenin and Stalin are.  Either God is Supreme or the corrupt authoritarian ‘state’ is supreme.  

R.J. Rushdoony astutely observed that behind every system of broken law there is a god:

If the source of law is the individual, then the individual is the god of that system….if source of law is our court then the court is our god.  If there is no higher law beyond man, then man is his own god…When you choose your authority, you choose your god, and when you look for your law, there is your god.” (When A Nation Forgets God, Erwin Lutzer, p. 59)

Dr. Lutzer writes that the strong influence of Christianity throughout our government, education, media, and American law has been undermined by two very powerful, highly destructive influences. 

First there is evolution, Darwinism in particular.

Darwinism has destroyed the foundations of Christianity, thus our Constitutional Republic, as well as man's soul/spirit, thereby reducing "we the people" to a chance products of matter in motion:

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

By 1870 Christopher Langdell, dean of Harvard School of Law was teaching that the principles of evolution must be applied to the written opinion of judges.  Lutzer points out that the conclusion was inescapable:

Law was not what the Constitution said it was but what judges said it was.  In other words, there was no longer an objective base; the absolutes dissolved along with the supposed demise of the Creator.” (pp. 65-66)

Second, liberal theology has stripped the Bible of its miraculous, historical and literal elements, thereby allowing it to be considered as one book among many.  No longer is it generally believed that the Bible, especially the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, is the objective revelation of God.   In the end, theological liberalism, a form of pantheism, is nothing more than atheist humanism in theological dress. (ibid, p. 67)

Today America’s corrupt, power-hungry, self-worshipping ruling class has nearly succeeded in leveraging itself into the position of supreme law-givers and mind-and-conscience shapers.   Like Marx, Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler, they are atheists who embrace neo-pagan Darwinism or perhaps Teilhard's pantheist conception, thus they view “we the people” as the chance product of matter in motion; evolved bags of worthless chemicals destined to be recycled as fertilizer.   Furthermore, many of them favor Agenda 21, which is totalitarian socialism and/or communism in another dress.

America’s ruling class has not as yet attained the total power Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin and Hitler acquired enabling them to arbitrarily create new laws that deprived millions of people of their status as persons.  With the declaration that they were no longer human but useless eaters, weeds, pond scum, or dinosaurs who should have died out long ago, industrial killing machines were set in motion that eventually consumed in excess of 160,000,000 men, women and children.

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

 America has long been prepared for what Lutzer warns is now coming toward us rather quickly.  Pressure to bow to Caesar will come through the Supreme Court and lower courts whereby America’s ruling class will further its stranglehold over our nation by creating laws similar to those of the Nazis and Communists.  Lutzer envisions 13 laws:

a. Laws that criminalize all public expressions of religion---especially Christianity.  This could include severe penalties for those who pray at public events.  All expressions of religion in public places will be strictly forbidden.  No Bible on a desk, no Christian poster or cross allowed in public places.

b. All public crosses will be removed; no memorial in the shape of a cross is permitted.

c. Hate crime laws with their assertion that ‘hate speech’ is verbal violence will make criticism of homosexuals or Muslims punishable, even if the remarks are made in a church or synagogue.  This includes readings from the Bible.  Crimes against homosexuals will be deemed worthy of greater punishment than crimes against others.

d. Schools will legally punish children who do not participate in the celebration of the homosexual lobby and its agenda

e. Partial birth abortion and euthanasia will be protected by the Constitution

f. Abortion will be an absolute right.  Parents who oppose their child’s choice to have an abortion will be deemed abusive and liable to have their children removed from their home.

g. Same-sex marriage will become an inherent right protected by the Constitution.  No discrimination will be allowed between homosexual and heterosexual marriages, in organizations such as the Boy Scouts or in the teaching of homosexuality to school children.

h. Churches cannot discriminate against homosexuals in their hiring practices for youth workers, associate pastors, worship leaders, etc.

i.  Schools will teach homosexuality beginning in the 1st grade and parents have no right to withdraw their children from these classes.

j. Churches that fail to marry homosexuals will lose their tax exempt status.

k. Homeschooling will be unconstitutional unless curriculum is approved by the state board and is tested by school authorities.  Approved curriculum includes mandatory teachings about evolution, homosexuality, etc.

l. The ‘Fairness Doctrine’ is implemented so that whenever a controversial issue like Jesus is the only way to God, equal time will be given to a different point of view.  This in effect puts an end to Christian radio as we know it.

m. Bible studies with more than ten people attending cannot be held in homes without a religious permit furnished by the city/county where the meetings are held.

Ultimately, America is being prepared by New Age Revolutionaries to submit to a top-down spiritually pantheist world order dominated by a global occult aristocracy who believe they are evolving into gods.  Before it can come into existence, there must be a politically correct philosophy of 'new' thought and a philosophy of pantheist-based natural religion and natural science and evolution to usher in the coming political, social, legal and educational aspects of the new order since Luciferian New Age religion is a politically communist, ecologically 'sustainable,' sexually androgynous way of living.

The New Age Revolution, of which the U.N., Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Publishing), the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Temple of Understanding and Baca Grande (Colorado based New Age Vatican City) are integral components, intends the complete overturning of Biblical moral and spiritual values enjoyed by Western and American civilization for over a thousand years.  As part of this goal, the Bible must be reinterpreted in terms of evolutionary pantheism, man must be fundamentally remade by eradication of every vestige of Imago Dei from his inner being, and Christian leadership reduced to a non-factor.

The Revolution’s primary goals are:

a. Destruction of the Christian-based foundation of Western and American civilization;

b. Dissolution of legal government;

c. Destruction of sovereignty and patriotism;

d. Demoralizing, atheitizing (primarily through teaching of Darwinism), and bringing the people of the United States into slavery via liberated sin nature and penury via graduated income taxes, property taxes, inheritance taxes, sales taxes, a massive welfare state and now socialized healthcare;

e. The abolition of God-given right to life via reproductive rights (abortion) and euthanasia and of private property via onerous building codes, zoning regulations and restrictions and by taxing property out of existence and targeting inheritance with bigger and bigger taxes.

f. Destruction of the traditional monogamous family unit via divorce, co-habitation, alternative lifestyles, abortion, pornography, hedonism and homosexuality.

Not surprisingly, when Antichrist arises he will create yet more laws, laws that will indict those who do not worship him.  Like Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and America’s Ruling Class, he will begin with lies, and then make laws, and finally be worshipped as Lord:

His control will be expanded both in numbers and in controlling details of ordinary living.  He will be another Hitler, more powerful, more believable, more blasphemous, more cruel.” (Erwin Lutzer, p. 73)

But those who persevere in faith to Jesus Christ will be rewarded with eternal joy unspeakable in Paradise.

Man is God? No. "You are of Nothing." Isaiah 41:24

Evolutionary humanists, whether atheist, pantheist or theological, have a materialist philosophy that faithful Christians share.  The principal doctrine of Christianity is that the living, personal Creator God became flesh (i.e., matter) in Jesus Christ.   The Christian God is One God in three Persons and the ultimate aim of the Way of Christ is not just the salvation of immortal souls (the unseen inner person) but the resurrection of the material body (the seen) in incorruptibility.

Christian reality consists of two interacting halves, hence this earth (the seen/material dimension) is really a theater where men live out their lives on its stage being observedby other men (the seen) and by the living, personal God, holy angels, unholy angels and demons  (the unseen).

Men cannot see God and very rarely do they see angels but they can see and hear us. God tests our hearts for good and evil, knows our secrets, motives, and thoughts (Psa. 17:3; 44:21; 139: 1-4) and both righteous angels and malevolent fallen angels and demon are all around us, watching, listening, helping if righteous, if not then tempting men to sin, corrupting minds, and speaking persuasive delusions  into the minds of men.

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Genesis 1:27, KJB

According to the Christian view of reality, the essence of the human is not the body (the flesh), but the soul/spirit:

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)  

Building off of the Christian view of reality St. Augustine (AD 354-430) affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent One God in three Persons then it logically follows that each human person is a trinity of being — of soul, spirit and body (physical matter).

The noblest part of the soul is spirit (the heart). Spirit is immortal and self-aware. It can will and think and is freely responsible for what it thinks, wills, and does.

Spirit is the unique property that distinguishes soul from the material body in which it is fully embedded. In Biblical thought, spirit allows man to spiritually transcend the natural or ‘seen’ dimension in order to access the unseen or 3rd heaven, thereby allowing him to enter into a personal relationship with the Spirit of God. Through this relationship, the dead spirit of man’s mind, conscience and will is renewed over time, thus enabling him to more perfectly orient the manner of his existence in this world in preparation for eternity.

In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person.

The key to personal liberty in the natural dimension is man's spiritual liberty contrasted against a genetically programmed animal-like orientation. Animals have souls but not spirits which are linked to intelligence, imagination, sensitivity, self-consciousness, reflection and the capacity for truth and moral goodness.  

A person is uniquely free because he can spiritually transcend his material brain to access the 3rd heaven as Paul affirms:

"Now the Lord is Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom" (2 Cor. 3:17)

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)

The Christian view of reality does not stop at materialism as neo-pagan evolutionary naturalism in its various permutations does by positing only the existence of either divinized or un-divinized void and psychic matter in motion (natural processes):

"...one belief that all true original Darwinians held in common, and that was their rejection of creationism, their rejection of special creation. This was the flag around which they assembled and under which they marched.... The conviction that the diversity of the natural world was the result of natural processes and not the work of God was the idea that brought all the so-called Darwinians together in spite of their disagreements on other of Darwin's theories." (One Long Argument, 1991, p. 99, Ernst Mayr (d. 2005), Professor of Zoology at Harvard University)

Though evolutionary theists and progressive creationists claim to be Christian, due to their rejection of the Authoritative inerrant Revelation of God and Special Creation in favor of man-centered evolutionary narratives and sciencethey are Christian in name only.  By their choices they demonstrate their alliance with evolutionary atheists and pantheists of every stripe:

 "We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door." ("Billions and Billions of Demons," Richard Lewontin, PhD Zoology, Alexander Agassiz Research Professor at Harvard University)

Both evolutionary humanism and Buddhism are nature religions positing a one-sided view of reality rather than Christianity’s total view of reality encompassing both physical matter and spirit. 

Evolutionary humanism’s one-sided view holds that void, which may or may not be called god, and psychic matter in motion encompasses all of reality.  Since this is reality then the physical world is Maya, or illusion. 

What chiefly separates evolutionary atheism from its pantheist and theological counterparts is whether matter is physical or nonphysical.  If physical, then the Triune God, heaven, hell, soul/spirit, angels, and demons do not exist.   But if nonphysical, then for example, the Force, Omega, Quantum Void, spirits, ghosts, divine sparks, Transcended Masters, intra-cosmic deities, Orobouros, serpent power, astral planes, divine impersonal mind and Christ consciousness exist but the material world is an illusion.

Brooks Alexander, the founder of The Spiritual Counterfeits Project (SCP), an evangelical ministry and think-tank in Berkeley, California identifies both physical and nonphysical evolutionary conceptions as the two sides of pagan monism. 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)

For many years evolutionary atheists (or secular humanists) have been quietly crossing over into spiritual or cosmic conceptions of matter and embracing for example, Zen Buddhism and Teilhards idea, which leapfrogs off of Darwin’s godless theory.

The apostate French Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) taught that an impersonal god-force emerges from spontaneously generated matter.  According to Teilhard, this evolution of a god-force results in evolution becoming “conscious of itself” and ultimately, in the transformation of all physical matter into nonphysical divine matter defined by Teilhard as “Christ consciousness” or “pure spirit.”  Teilhard called this final stage of evolution the “Omega Point” and “the cosmic Christ.”

By the start of the 21st century the one-sided New Age pantheist worldview has finally found both support and 'scientific proof' from members of the scientific community.

In “The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition,” James Herrick writes that physicists,

“….claim to have irrefutable scientific proof for the foundational pantheism of the Other Spirituality.” (p. 169)

For example, in the “Quantum Society,” physics writers Danah Zohar and Ian Marshall advocate a new mystical science of pantheism, psychology and sociology grounded in a breathtaking range of practical implications in the,

“…fundamental physics that underlies all else that is in the universe” lending itself to a holistic understanding that “the nature of the mind, the nature of society, and the nature of nature are all one and the same thing…linked by a common physics.” (ibid, p. 170-171)

According to Zohar and Marshall, the physics underlying all else in the universe consist of two sorts of particles, bosons and fermions.  Fermions “are particles that make up things” including “protons, neutrons, and electrons, the basic constituents of the atom.”   In other words, “all of the matter of the universe is made of fermions.”  (ibid)

Thus there are only two kinds of matter in the universe, and fermions are what we call physical matter.  The other kind of matter is the active principle: spiritual and mental boson particles.  Bosons are the fundamental spiritual/mental forces that “bind the universe together---the electromagnetic, the gravitational, the strong and weak nuclear…”   Since bosons appear to “like clustering together,” consciousness and social qualities are most likely boson phenomena.  (ibid)

Both physicists contend that the active spiritual boson is implicated in basic evolutionary processes, thus there is a “whole new ‘metaphysic” of the human in the history of the boson:

If the tendency of two bosons to bunch together at the most basic level of early physical processes can be traced in unbroken sequence to the principles underlying the physical basis for conscious mind,” then “we have traced the origins of the human mind back to primordial physical reality.”  (ibid)

This means that in the social tendencies of ‘thinking’ bosons physicists believe they have discovered the evolutionary origins of the human soul (self) since the boson is the critical link between the soul and the evolutionary emanation or emergence from out of the void of both biological and spiritual life on earth.

Zohar and Marshal conclude that there is no longer any basis in the quantum worldview for any “ontological distinction between the human and the natural.”  Their conclusion represents “a radical shift away from the whole earlier Western worldview,” with its’ total view of reality and this is applauded and greatly appreciated by New World Order occult pantheist globalists.

Zohar and Marshal also find that when physicists probe the deep recesses of the universe they are confronted by a void, an indefinite and seemingly infinite field of energy that they call the ‘quantum vacuum,” a background without features that seems empty yet is where all physical objects originate:

All the waves and particles that we can see and measure, literally, as in the Greek, ex-ist  or ‘stand out from’ an underlying sea of potential that physicists have named the vacuum….just as waves undulate on the sea.”  This ‘sea’ of proto-physicality is an “all pervasive, underlying field of potential…the vacuum.”   (ibid, p. 172)

The ‘quantum vacuum’ is strikingly similar to some Hindu and Buddhist accounts of the origins of physical objects as emanations from the One and/or the Void.   Nor do Zohar and Marshall deny the similarity:   

The vacuum spoken of by quantum physicists, like the Buddhist concept of Sunyata, or the Void, to which it is so similar, is replete with potentiality.”   (ibid)

The ultimate discovery of the New Physics is scientific proof of the basic correctness of Benedict Spinoza’s and Hinduism’s pantheistic theology---nature is god and as god is in all things, including man, then man is god too. 

You can be as God?

The perennially persuasive Big Lie underlies both physical and nonphysical conceptions. This thought is expressed openly in the teachings of Swami Vivekananda and Dr. Beverly Galyean, leading exponent of occult Luciferian New Age confluent education:

"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)

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

Man is God? No, "You are of Nothing"  Isaiah 41:24

“Behold, you are of nothing, and your work of that which hath no being: he that hath chosen you is an abomination.”

If all that exists are void, matter and energies working on and through matter then it logically follows that there is no source for life, conscious life (soul, spirit and will), the two sexes, human dignity and worth, or for unalienable Constitutional rights beginning with the right to life, liberty, and property. 

Without the transcendent Triune God meaning drains into meaninglessness and man is reduced to less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Marxist Communists attempted to scientifically re-engineer human beings after the fashion of Buddha’s metaphysical nihilism.

Following in Buddha’s footsteps, Western and American evolutionary materialists took our Creator away and replaced Him with Darwinian materialism.  Then they conceptually reduced His spiritual image-bearers to less than nothing, taught monstrous lies as scientific fact, morally corrupted Westerners and Americans, and brutally ridiculed and demonized anyone who dared speak truth to their lies. By these means they set Western and American civilization on the edge of an abyss.   

Nihilism (you are of nothing) is spiritual, moral, intellectual and cultural suicide.  It is the devil’s inferno here on earth, the void of everything and nothing in which 2+2=5, death is life, evil is good, lie is truth, up is down, male is female, female is male, rolling in filth is good clean fun, bad is good but evil better.  

The unreality of “self” is a waking nightmare fueled by horrors of conscience, obsession with death and hellish terrors of mind that makes suicide, drugs, hedonism, sodomy, pederasty and pedophilia, violence, murder, abortion, euthanasia, and genocide into virtues.

"..... 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

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

The Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Living Word become Flesh, Jesus Christ the Physician, came to heal the spiritually sick and dying, to save immortal souls and resurrect material bodies in incorruptibility.

Just as we are on the verge of going down into the pit, ready to depart to the unseen world, if we will repent and turn back to Him then by His providence and grace our Lord will revive our souls and deliver us from those accursed horrors of conscience and ghastly terrors of mind which by reason of our sin are as hell searing itself into and possessing our very minds. (Psalm 116:3)

But whoever rejects the Physician, the Divine Source of life and soul, rejects His prescription, thereby destroys him or herself.   So we ought to turn back to Him right now, before it is too late.

The Secret World Government and its’ New World Order Ambitions

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Two Ways before Us: God or Evolutionary Theists & Spirits; Life or Death?

Over on evolutionarychristianity.com, America’s self-designated evolutionary evangelist Michael Dowd argues that a new breed of theist is emerging in nearly every denomination and religion.  We are religious naturalists, said Dowd, and our God is not the supernatural Holy God of Revelation but rather Reality/Universe/Life.. 

Evidence is our scripture and integrity is our religion. We are not supernaturalists but naturalists:  

We are inspired and motivated more by this world and this life than by promises of a future otherworld or afterlife.” (The New Theism: Shedding Beliefs, Celebrating Knowledge, Dowd, evolutionarychristianity.com

New Theists are diverse:

Many of us continue to call ourselves Christian, Jew, Muslim, or Hindu. We may also self-identify as emergentist, evidentialist, freethinker, neo-humanist, pantheist, panentheist, or some other label incomprehensible in a pre-scientific age.

 Because New Theists have a modern evolutionary understanding of emergence they know for sure that all theological ‘isms’ such as theism, deism, pantheism, and atheism are outdated, misleading, and unnecessarily divisive terms.   Dowd argues this is because they came into being long before we had a modern evolutionary understanding, therefore these terms, and Christianity itself, must be reinterpreted in an evolutionary context.  

There are people who are ignorant of God’s Word but willing to read, study, understand and come to love His Word.   And then there are those who know His Word but because they dislike it then like Dowd reduce certain portions such as the first three chapters of Genesis to myth and allegory, thereby enabling themselves to reinterpret Scripture in an evolutionary context so that where the purpose of the Gospel is life eternal now it is death.

 Dowd argues that reinterpretation of Scripture is necessary in order to harmonize it with the modern evolutionary understanding of emergence, or being created and/or changed continuously. 

American anthropologist, educator, philosopher, and natural science writer Loren Eisely (1907-1977) explains that the ancient taproot of modern evolution and its’ constant companion emergence or continuous change, is the mystical doctrine known as the Great Chain of Being:  

All that the Great Chain of Being actually needed to become a full-fledged evolutionary theory was the introduction into it of the conception of time in vast quantities....It demanded, in other words, a universe not made but being made continuously. It is ironic and intriguing that the fixed hierarchical order in biology began to pass almost contemporaneously with the disappearance of the feudal social scale in the storms of the French Revolution. It was France, whose social system was dissolving, that produced the first modern evolutionists. As we look back upon the long reign of the Scale of Being, whose effects...persisted well into the nineteenth century, we may observe that the seed of evolution lay buried in the traditional metaphysic which indeed prepared the Western mind for its acceptance.” (Darwin’s Century, Eisley, pp. 9-10)

The Great Chain of Being is an ancient pantheist doctrine that in a primitive form first appeared in the pre-flood world when Lucifer persuaded antediluvians to believe that the original Creator God had emptied Himself into His creation, therefore no longer existed except as an impersonal eternal creative force making it possible for each person to evolve into god.

In its’ original post-flood conception the Great Chain of Being was a static system representing the mind of the Eternal Absolute (creative force), or Void with Buddhist and some Hindu systems. 

According to this ancient occult metaphysic, the entire universe, all life, and even all of the gods and human beings and everything else came about by a process of emanation from the Eternal Absolute (also Void, Chaos, Nous, and Nu):

 “Just as waves form across the surface of the ocean, so the Void forms upon itself successive waves (emanations) of entities that in turn emanate further entities and so on, with all of these entities interacting within an extraordinary network or great chain of being consisting of downward-sloping self-contained planes of existence, a top-down hierarchy of realities arranged vertically.”

Each higher plane of existence emanates the one below it through a process of emanation, thus each plane stands in the position of ground of being (god) to the one below it.  Therefore creation is not creation ex nihilo, as the Genesis account teaches, but emanation out of the Void, the ultimate ground of being.” 

“Each plane of existence has its own specific characteristics, thus there can be a plane where spirit or thought forms exist; where the Gnostic demiurge, the evil Jehovah, god of material creation exists; the realm of the deities, demons, heavens, hells, angels, and so on, realm upon realm, all looking downwards to the physical realm and also looking upwards to the Void or quantum vacuum.”

(http://patriotsandliberty.com/lindas-latest/2013/10/28/quantum-vacuum-americas-rising-communalistic-pantheism

The occult meaning of the Great Chain of Being or Scale of Nature is vested in the famous magic formula of Hermes Trismegistus, “As above, so below.”   This means that the mind of the initiate who masters the secret occult rituals and seething energies becomes as it were, the mind of the Divine Absolute Mind (Void) above, hence ‘as above, so below.’

Modern Evolution?

With respect to Darwin’s ‘modern’ theory of evolution/natural selection, it is well known that Darwin received the idea from his neo-pagan grandfather Erasmus Darwin. As for its’ important co-discoverer, Alfred Russell Wallace (1823-1913), research reveals that Wallace was a practicing spiritist, meaning he interacted with disembodied spirits.

Wallace was intensely obsessed by evolution, and while on a journey to the tropics contracted malaria and was ‘out of his mind’ with fever when Darwin’s theory, which he had been working on for twenty years, was suddenly revealed in its entirety to Wallace, a self-confessed, practicing spiritist halfway around the world, alone on a tropical island.

The connection between Wallace’s spiritism and the sudden revelation of Darwin’s theory was not lost on Loren Eisely:

Suddenly it occurred to the feverish naturalist in a lightening flash of insight that Malthus’ checks to human increase....must, in similar or analogous ways, operate in the natural world as well...It was Darwin’s unpublished conception down to the last detail, independently duplicated by a man sitting in a hut at the world’s end.” (Alfred Russel Wallace, Eisely, p. 80)

Just as Friedrich Nietzsche’s evolutionary conception was preceded by two mystical encounters with a spirit called Zarathustra. Darwin received his idea from his grandfather, a pagan known to attend séances and Darwin’s co-discoverer Russell Wallace, a practicing spiritist, suddenly received Darwin’s theory in a lightening flash while ‘out of his mind’ with fever.

Evolution or Creation ex Nihilo?

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 ex nihilo 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)

There are two ways that lie before us.   We can choose to accept as true the Revealed Word of God beginning with the first three chapters of Genesis or we can accept as true the modern evolutionary emergence thinking of new theists together with Zarathustra and other powers and principalities.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Instead of Adam, lamented Disraeli,

“…our ancestry is traced to the most grotesque of creatures; thought is phosphorous, the soul complex nerves, and our moral sense a secretion of sugar.” (ibid, p 33)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1. Abolition of all ordered governments and national boundaries

2. Abolition of private property and inheritances

3. Abolition of national boundaries and patriotism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lucifer's Coming New Age World Order

With over 500 pages and 1,200 footnotes, Ted Flynn’s book, “Hope of the Wicked: the Master Plan to Rule the World,” details many of the agendas of the communist global community.   With several thousand quotes it uses the words of prime ministers, secretaries of treasury, secretaries of state, philanthropists and global business leaders to describe what they envision and their plans to bring it about as well as the convergence, on a global basis, of multinational corporations, foundations and the political and sociological instruments that would form a one-world government designed to bring about a New World Order.

Flynn writes that there is a confluence of events pointing to major changes that for many years have been coming to the world, and they appear to be coming toward us more quickly now. He points to an 1846 heavenly apparition, a prophecy delivered by the Blessed Virgin Mary to two peasant children and approved by the Catholic Church as a prescient summary of events on behalf of godless Communism and Socialism:

All the civil governments will have one and the same plan, which will be to abolish and do away with every religious principle, to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism and vice of all kinds….The mountains and all Nature will tremble in terror, for the disorders and crimes of men have pierced the vault of the heavens…The righteous will suffer greatly.  Their prayers, their penances and their tears will rise up to Heaven and all of God’s people will beg for forgiveness and mercy…And then Jesus Christ, in an act of His justice and His great mercy will command His Angels to have all His enemies put to death….and the persecutors of the Church of Jesus Christ and all those given over to sin will perish…”  (p. 445)

In another apparition approved by the Church, the Blessed Virgin Mary warned of the “annihilation of nations.” (ibid, p. 445)

Materialism, Atheism, Communism & Annihilation of Nations

Friedrich Engels (1820-1895), a 19th century German political philosopher figures prominently in Karl Marx’s life.  Beginning in 1844, Engels and Marx, a God-hating dialectical materialist, collaborated closely in the foundation of modern Communism.  By 1848, they had produced The Communist Manifesto and other works.

The tragedy of Engels is that before joining forces with Marx he had been a faithful Christian.  After meeting Marx for the first time he described him as a monster subjected to devils.  Marx does not,

“…walk or run, he jumps on his heels full of anger…He stretches his arms far away in the air; the wicked fist is clenched, he rages without ceasing, as if ten thousand devils had caught him by the hair.”  (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 36)

Engels was very well aware of the dangers of entangling himself with devilish sons of perdition like Marx.  In his book, “Schelling, Philosopher in Christ,” he writes of a devilish spirit overtaking men:

Since the terrible French Revolution, an entirely new, devilish spirit has entered into a great part of mankind, and godlessness lifts its daring head in such an unashamed and subtle manner that you would think the prophecies of Scripture are fulfilled (Matthew 24:11)..And St. Paul says in II Thes. 2:3: That man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is God, or that is worshipped…The coming of the Wicked is after the working of Satan….(therefore we must have)  nothing to do any more with indifference or coldness toward the Lord (for as of now) we have only…Christians and anti-Christians….We see the false prophets among us…They travel throughout Germany and wish to intrude everywhere; they teach their Satanic teachings in the market-places and bear the flag of the Devil from one town to another, seducing the poor youth, in order to throw them in the deepest abyss of hell and death.” (ibid, p. 40)

The devilish man responsible for converting Engels to godless Communism was Moses Hess, the same man who had previously converted Marx.  After meeting Engels in Cologne Hess wrote:

He parted from me as an overzealous Communist.  This is how I produce ravages…” (ibid, p. 43)

The spiritual transformation Engels underwent was striking and hideous.  Like Marx, he no longer cared about the destruction of millions of people on behalf of the Communist revolution. 

A bloodless Marx writes of the coming genocide of millions of men, women, and children:

“A silent, unavoidable revolution is taking place in society, a revolution that cares as little about the human lives it destroys as an earthquake cares about the houses it ravages.  Classes and races…too weak to dominate the new conditions of existence will be defeated.” (ibid, p. 42)

In a similar vein Engels speaks of the coming annihilation of peoples and nations:

The next world war will make whole reactionary peoples disappear from the face of the earth.  This, too, is progress.  Obviously this cannot be fulfilled without crushing some delicate national flower.   But without violence and without pitilessness nothing can be obtained in history.”  (p. 43) 

The revolution that “cares little about the lives it destroys” is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in Satan, the spirit of opposition, rebellion, materialism, atheism, spiritualism, lies and envy.   The Revolution is war against the supernatural Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, which in the words of Marx’s anarchist comrade Bakunin, are the “cursed and fatal principle of authority.”

The sentiment of the Revolution is Satanic pride:

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

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

Fueled by dissatisfaction with self, the world, society, and God the Father Almighty, it devotes its' infernal energy toward "change," or as Marx put it, toward the destruction of everything that exists.

The Satanic Revolution intends both the destruction of the Christian-based Old Order and the establishment of something new because:

"The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed." (Karl Marx, Marx and Satan, p. 59)

The Revolution, of which the U.N. is an integral component, intends the complete overturning of Biblical moral and spiritual values enjoyed by Western and American civilization for over a thousand years.  As part of that goal, Christian leadership must be reduced to a non-factor. Ted Flynn writes that this has largely been accomplished,

“…by placing their own leaders in place where they exert tremendous influence.  Much of this program of revolution was confirmed by Franklin D. Roosevelt in his book, ‘Our Way.’…summed up, the spiritual and immoral goals of world revolution (and how they) are being achieved, and nowhere more so than in the United States.” (Flynn, p. 361)

These goals are:

1.Destruction of Western civilization;

2.Dissolution of legal government;

3.Destruction of nationalism…and patriotism

4.Bringing the people of the United States into penury via graduated income taxes, property taxes, inheritance taxes, and sales taxes;

5.The abolition of God-given right to private property by taxing property out of existence and targeting inheritance with bigger and bigger taxes;

6.Destruction of the family unit via divorce, abortion, and homosexuality

Before there can be a New Age global spiritual communist order, there must be a philosophy of ‘new’ thought, and a philosophy of natural religion to usher in the coming political, social, and educational aspects of the new world order since Luciferian New Age spirituality is a politically communist way of living.  In her two books on New Age evolutionary spirituality, ‘The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow,’ and ‘A Planned Deception’ Constance Cumbey writes:

The New Age Movement is a religion complete with its own Bibles, prayers and mantras, Vatican City/Jerusalem equivalents, priests and gurus, born again experiences (they call it ‘rebirthing’), spiritual laws and commandments, psychics and prophets and nearly every other indicia of a religion.” (Flynn, p. 361)

According to Cumbey, the Plan for the NWO includes the installation of a NWO messiah, implementation of a NWO totalitarian government and new world religion under Maitreya.  As well, there are plans to implement a universal credit card system, universal tax, universal draft, and a world food authority that will control all of the world’s food supply.  To ensure that all people worship the NWO messiah, authentic Christianity and faithful Judaism will be completely stamped out along with all faithful Christians and Jews.

In support of this goal, Lucifer, the spirit energizing and directing the NWO Revolution, intends to fully possess the Christian faith and refashion it completely.  The devil audaciously declares that the supernatural God the Father Almighty has been isolated in transcendence and is dead, so though the notion of God is retained, the devil proposes a functionless God that perhaps serves to ignite the Big Bang and set evolution in motion.   In any case, the Revolution will not stop until every vestige of faith in the supernatural God has been obliterated in every heart. Every man, woman, and child will experience a counter-conversion...a Satanic Initiation in the words of New Age insider David Spangler... to a new pagan spiritualism dressed in Christian symbols and terminology, an anti-gospel preached by anti-saints who will assure men of their salvation though they will find only outer darkness.

Natural Science & Evolution: the Science Magic & Pagan Religion of Sophistical Naturalists

By the close of WW II, Richard Weaver and countless other classical liberals, progressives, socialists, communists and Christian intellectuals apprehensively discerned that the Western civilized nations were on the road to breakdown and totalitarianism. Suffering "progressive disillusionment," Weaver was led to ponder the fallacies of modernist ideas that had produced the holocaust of evil visited upon the world from WW I to WW II. By late 1945, Weaver published his conclusions in his book, "Ideas Have Consequences."

The subject of Weaver's book was "the dissolution of the West." Its deterioration was traced by Weaver to the late 14th century when Churchmen and like-minded intellectuals had made an "evil decision."  Enticed by William of Occam's (d. c. 1349) philosophy of nominalism, they rebelled against transcendent "universals," thus the position that "there is a source of truth higher than, and independent of, man..." The consequences of this revolution in ideas 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)

As the downward spiral continued the Holy God was conceptually murdered, the supernatural dimension shut-down and a one-dimensional view of Nature held up as the supreme reality. The Genesis account of creation ex nihilo was eclipsed by evolution and the doctrine of original sin replaced by the "goodness of man." With only the physical world of the senses held to be real, supernatural Christianity declined, sophistry arose and natural science became the most prestigious way to study man. With knowledge limited to the sensory realm, man's spiritual attributes (soul/spirit, mind, conscience, will), were soon lost in an endless cycle of biological reductionism and determinism. Man, created in the spiritual likeness of his living, personal Creator would be lost. In his place would stand the soulless human ape, an accidental emergent product of mindless evolutionary energy.

Weaver dubbed this way of thinking the "spoiled-child psychology" of modern man who had "not been made to see the relationship between reward and effort." This orgy of mindlessness is traceable to certain terrible-willed modernists who, no longer wanting to be created in the spiritual likeness of their Creator, had failed to achieve an integrated world picture, a "metaphysical dream," said Weaver.

Weaver concluded with an ominous warning:

"…the closer man stands to ruin, the duller grows his realization (for) the annihilation of spiritual being precedes the destruction of temple walls." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, pp. 30-33)  

What this means with respect to man is that natural science methodically reduces soul to body (matter/DNA), spirit (mind) to grey matter and the cognitive abilities of mind (i.e., reason, memory, will) to movement of chemicals and firing of neurons in grey matter.  Furthermore, as everything is subject to the animated law of evolution, then everything from the Bible, creation ex nihilo, Jesus Christ, Heaven, hell, Christian faith, transcendent truth and moral law, the two created sexes, the Constitution, unalienable rights, and our nation’s sovereignty must be subjected to change because all things spontaneously emanate from matter in motion.  Thus Corliss Lamont declares that within the worldview of humanist naturalism,

There is no place…for either immortality or God (because naturalism) contends that instead of the gods creating the cosmos, the cosmos, in the individualized form of human beings giving rein to their imagination, created the gods.”  (The Philosophy of Humanism, 1982)

In other words, as everything spontaneously emanates from animated matter (the cosmos)  and man is animated matter in an individualized human form then his imagination is a curious product of animated cosmos (thinking chemicals and neurons) making god an evolving product of cosmos working within the cosmic imagination of cosmic man.  

Ninety years before Richard Weaver sounded his ominous warning, the 19th century Danish philosopher and theologian Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was one of the most systematically and clear-eyed enemies of natural science.  His assertion that the sophistical naturalist mind is in fact the inability of spiritually dead natural man to transcend the natural dimension is an abbreviated and precise definition of natural science.    

In “The Present Age,” Kierkegaard’s cutting satire aimed at natural science, he scornfully calls it “the increasing mass of drivel which is called science….”  Invoking the authority of Socrates he writes:

If the natural sciences had been developed in Socrates day as they are now, all the sophists would have been scientists.  One would have hung a microscope outside his shop in order to attract custom, and then would have had a sign painted saying, ‘Learn and see through a giant microscope how a man thinks’ (and on reading the advertisement Socrates would have said: ‘that is how men who do not think behave.’) (Aeschliman, p. 30, 31)

It is impossible for us to understand natural science and its primary doctrine evolution unless we see it through the worldview lens of the pantheist/materialist occult magic and animism that emerged out of the Renaissance.  

In his two books, “The Occult Underground: The Dawn of the New Age” and “The Occult Establishment,” historian James Webb chronicles the rise of an occult intelligentsia together with natural science and evolution as it emerged out of the Renaissance, a spiritually traumatic time when many Churchmen and Christian intellectuals eagerly embraced mystical Cabalism, the doctrine of emanation, Hermeticism, Buddhism, alchemy, Gnosticism, reincarnation and evolution sweeping into Christendom at that time.   Webb’s book, “The Occult Underground” was originally called “Flight from Reason” because Renaissance apostates had turned back to occultism, the science of magic.

Under the term occultism are included various practices broadly categorized as animism, astrology, divination (called channeling today), fetishism, and shamanism. Underlying all of these is magic.

Magic, or goetia, is generally understood to be an interference with the normal 'way things work' in the course of nature. It is the ancient practice whose goal is to acquire godlike powers by breaking the created order of nature with the goal of unpatterning and undesigning its patterns and designs so as to uncreate creation and then replace the broken created order with a second reality which is really an illusion.

Generally this is done by way of alchemical formulas and speaking magic words (invocations, incantations), through gestures, secret rituals, and other mysterious actions knowable only to magicians, wizards, gurus, god-men, shamans, witches, sorcerers, and other such adepts who claim to possess deep inner-gnosis and even psychic powers.  

Natural science and/or methodological naturalism and Darwinism are forms of goetia that break and unpattern the patterns of creation.  This process begins with the inversion of creation and the breaking and unpatterning of the substance of God so as to redistribute His Divine Substance throughout nature. The end result is pantheism/animism.  In a similar fashion, Imago Dei is broken and unpatterned as God’s spiritual image bearer so as to further endow brute matter with man’s spiritual endowments.

In Disraeli’s novel Lothair, the Monsignore describes what has become of man after sophistical naturalists have broken and unpatterned him: 

Instead of Adam, our ancestry is traced to the most grotesque of creatures; thought is phosphorous, the soul complex nerves, and our moral sense a secretion of sugar.” (Aeschliman. P. 33)

The return to the ancient science of magic chronicled by Webb produced two currents of animism: Eastern/occult pantheism and reincarnation and scientific materialism and/or natural science and evolution.

Essentially, animism is an ancient superstition holding that not only is all of nature and/or matter animated — including both living and non-living things — but that the animating force or spirit conveys power and influence. Western New Age occult-pantheism speaks of the animating spirit of evolution as the angel Lucifer, while its secular counterpart, scientific materialism speaks of miracle-producing ‘thinking’ energies or even the seething energies of Lucifer that subject everything to change, cause matter to think, choose, and act; cause god to emerge from cosmos, animate and inform memes, genes, chance, causation, determinism, DNA, chemicals and neurons, for example.

Furthermore, all religions and belief systems are true because an animated divine-force suffuses and energizes all things.  By extension of this perverse reasoning, Gaia is alive, and Gnosticism, Satanism, Wicca, Theosophy, and Sharia are true.  This is syncretism (moral relativism), the uniting of good and evil, truth and lie, the holy and the unholy.  R.J. Rushdoony writes:

"Now syncretism is destructive of the human mind, of rationality...(A) man who wants to unite good and evil...has lost the capacity for clear thinking.  His mind is darkened, clouded, fuzzed over, and incompetent....Man, by presuming to be god, has by that act destroyed the possibility of true thinking; from so radically false a premise, no valid conclusion can follow."  ("Why Is Rick Warren Waffling?"

Animism: the Mystical Energy of Matter and Evolution

Enrico Ferri (1856-1926), a prominent socialist of his day, and an Italian criminologist who for many years was the editor of Avanti, a socialist daily. Writing in "Socialism and Religious Beliefs," Ferri excitedly babbles about the miracle-producing ‘thinking’ energies animating nonliving ideological systems such as socialism.  Note that he endows natural or positive science with divine 'choice-making' ability:

"....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)

In the following example, Gustav Wetter expounds on the magical force animating, perfecting and informing nonliving thinking or dialectical matter,

"...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)

 After much thought C.S. Lewis concluded that natural science and its primary doctrine evolution is devised not to seek truth but to keep God (and the supernatural half of reality) out:

More disquieting still is Professor D.M.S. Watson’s defense. “Evolution itself,” he wrote, “is accepted by zoologists not because it has been observed to occur or...can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible.” Has it come to that? Does the whole vast structure of modern naturalism depend not on positive evidence but simply on an a priori metaphysical prejudice. Was it devised not to get in facts but to keep out God?” (CS Lewis, The Oxford Socratic Club, 1944)

As Kierkegaard perceptively observed, natural science and its primary doctrine evolution are the inventions of the sophistical mind of natural man (i.e., America’s ruling class) who worships and serves animated matter and unseen forces rather than the living Holy Creator Who created matter and rational life. For this reason, Lewis’s conclusions placed him squarely among the growing ranks of anti-natural science and evolution blasphemers.

The Bewitching Power behind the Religion of Evolutionary Paganism

In “Reflections on the Psalms” C.S. Lewis writes that if the Divine call,

“…does not make us better, it will make us very much worse.  Of all bad men religious bad men are the worst.  Of all created beings the wickedest is one who originally stood in the immediate presence of God.”   (The Quotable Lewis, Wayne Martindale & Jerry Root, Editors, p. 192) 

In agreement with Lewis, Matthew Henry identifies both Lucifer and tepid, indecisive, weak, or apostate clergy as falling stars.  Having ceased to be ministers to Christ, they become ministers of the devil and let “loose the powers of hell against the churches of Christ.”  (Concise Commentary) 

Under the guiding hand of apostate clergy the spirit of apostasy began its work right in the heart of Christendom, which today is a vast sea of darkness punctuated here and there by small shining lights.  Today however, it is the case that most of the leadership of apostasy comes from post-Christian America, and this is why so very many churches over and across the entire denominational spectrum are becoming like cisterns without living water.   

Speaking for apostate clergy stretching back to the Renaissance, Jesus Seminar apostates openly confess: 

It is no longer credible to think that there is a God ‘out there.”  (The Paganization of Biblical Studies, Dr. Peter Jones, crossroad.to, 2007)  

Apostate clergy reject the supernatural God the Father Almighty in three Persons who though He 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.  This is the meaning of the ‘God out there.’

From the Renaissance to our own age apostate clergy have been deconstructing Christian theism and with the emergence of evolutionary theory dressing neo-pagan evolutionary materialism and spiritually pantheist nature religions in Christian clothing in an attempt to overhaul the Christian faith.

Embraced by modern apostate clergy and considered one of New Zealand’s foremost thinkers, the Presbyterian apostate Lloyd Geering is Emeritus Professor of Religious Studies at Victoria University in New Zealand.  Dr. Jones writes that Geering’s books are promoted as programmatic essays for the future earth community from the point of view of Christian apostasy and neo-pagan evolutionary religion.  According to Geering, tomorrow’s culture will be post-Christian, global and religiously pagan. 

Jones notes the remarkable similarity of Geering’s agenda to that found in the ex-Roman Catholic apostate Thomas Berry, “The Great Work,” which is working its way through both biblical texts and the texts of the U.N.’s global programs.   

Geering posits that tomorrow’s culture will be post-Christian,

“...because evolution proves that human beings, as they evolved, created language, then symbols, then religious explanations.  The most recent human religious inventions are the monotheistic divine Creator of all things, and the dualism between the spiritual realm of a God who is believed to really exist, and the realm of created life.”  Christian theology calls this the supernatural Creator/natural creature distinction, but according to Geering, “The other-world of the dualistic picture…has been slowly dissolving from Western consciousness…through the most serious condemnation of traditional monotheism…by feminist thought.”  Feminist thinkers have shown that “the transfer of the seat of sacred power from the earth to the heavens, and the demise of the earth mother occasioned by the victory of the heavenly father, upset the balance of values in the gender relationship (which) in the pre-monotheistic cultures…were conceived to be in a state of complementary harmony.”  In other words, the ‘God out there’ created only two distinct but complementary sexes, male and female and this upset the pagan ideal of androgyny.  

 Like the long line of apostates stretching back to the Renaissance, Geering categorically rejects the living, personal God of the Bible:

 “The time for glorifying the Almighty (male) God who supposedly rules is now over.” The end of this supernatural God is so evident that “some future generation may well be moved to discard the Christian calendar entirely, and rename the year 2000 AD as 1 GE, the first year of the global era.  Soon the Lord’s Supper will only signify human fellowship, and Christmas will be a holiday for the celebration of family.” (ibid, Peter Jones)  

Perpetuating the apostasy of his predecessors, 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), 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 'nothing' 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 pantheism 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." (Normalizing Necromancy: Tempting the Church to Talk with the Dead, Worldview Weekend, 1/23/12)

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 Teilhard de Chardin, and pagan "geologians" such as Thomas Berry and Brian Swimme."

The underlying framework of religious evolutionary pantheism is naturalism, the assumption that only the natural dimension exists therefore living creatures created themselves. The supernatural dimension and the living, personal God who exists there does not exist, nor do Hell and the devil and his evil minions.

In his refutation of evolution, Jonathan Sarfati, Ph.D., FM, writes that evolution rests on the assumption that ‘nothing’ gave rise to ‘something’ at an alleged ‘big-bang,’ non-life bearing chemicals gave rise to life, single-celled organisms gave rise to multiple celled organisms, invertebrates gave rise to vertebrates, ape-like creatures gave rise to man; non-life-bearing, non-intelligent, amoral matter gave rise to intelligence and morality, man’s yearnings gave rise to religions, etc. (Refuting Evolution, Sarfati, creation.com)

Evolutionary pantheism builds off of naturalism and rests primarily on the work of the apostate priest Teilhard de Chardin and his quasi-Hindu idea.  Teilhard was a Hermetic magician and alchemist who held that after millions of years of evolution a divine substance finally emerged from matter thereby spiritualizing and divinizing all matter.  But since evolution is always in motion, then this pantheist nature deity is born by progressive unfolding.  As the world progresses the deity progresses.  As the world acquires perfection, the deity acquires perfection.  Moreover, man is a necessary step in the evolution of deity.  Just as man evolved from the ape, deity comes from man, thus man, according to Teilhard, can achieve a form of Godhood or a high level of spiritual oneness called the Omega Point:

This was an evolutionary process that everyone could attain through discipline and dedication to the path of enlightenment.” (Reflections on the Omega Point, Frank Tipler, omegapoint.org)

Nihilism underlies evolutionary naturalism just as it does all permutations of  evolutionary pantheist religion because none have a source for life, consciousness, and man's being, hence all are merely different expressions of nihilism.

Belief in evolution is a remarkable spiritual phenomenon that has swept the West and America. Despite its devilish nihilism, it is passionately defended by the atheist scientific establishment, academia, the controllers of the education establishment and apostate clergy as fiercely as Gollum defended his ‘precious,’ the One Ring of power forged by the evil Dark Lord Sauron.  The purpose of the One Ring was to gain dominion over the minds and souls of the free people of Middle Earth: "One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them."   So powerfully seductive was the ring that in most cases just one look was all it took to bewitch the beholder who thereafter sought by any means to become its owner despite that it meant his doom.

Like the One Ring, there is a cunning, malevolent intelligence behind evolution that bewitches, controls and binds.
