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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Modern Barbarian God-Men

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

God-men Remake Mankind as Grotesque Androgynous Bio-Machines

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 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

In the Face of America's Dominant Pagan Polytheism Who is Still On the Lord's Side?

America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of mankind, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, "I am the Lord your God...I am the Truth..." and "in His own image He made them, male and female He made them.....I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..." All else flows from this seedbed. Today however, a new Gnostic-paganism has displaced the Holy Triune God, our founding Biblical worldview, immutable truth, Moral Law, and everything good and natural. Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' it declares that the Biblical God is scientifically-passé  and that now every man is god and his own morals-and gender maker.
 
 Millions of human-gods, each with their own personal truths and moralities, and many evolving 'genders'---this is pagan polytheism issuing in chaos and ultimate breakdown ending in tyranny.
 
For more than eighty years the guiding hand behind the rise of new pagan polytheism has been a broad, loose-knit coalition of technocratic Gnostic pagans, occult mystical pantheists and atheist Jews popularly known as Marxists, Progressive Liberals, Fabian Socialists, Secular Humanists, liberal theologians, trans-humanists, New Age and other fellow-travelers.  This loose-knit coalition control the ACLU, GLSEN, GLAAD, Democratic Progressive Caucus, Democrat Stone Walls and Republican Log Cabins, PlannedParenthood, the NEA, CodePink, Sierra Club, and in fact, a vast, interlocking matrix of counter-revolutionary activist organizations and front groups including non-governmental organizations that interface with the UN; international progressive think-tanks such as Club Rome and Club Budapest; the Temples of Understanding in Washington DC and New York; and Lucis Trust, formerly named Lucifer Publishing.
 
Translated into global politics, the Gnostic pagan and mystical pantheism briefly outlined above is evolutionary Transnational Technocracy, a global Gnostic movement whose agenda is the imposition of a spiritually socialist, theocratic New World Order as stated some years ago by the futurist thinker, Jeremy Rifkin, an adviser to the European Union since 2002 and head of the largest global economic development team in the world. In 1983 at a point in the maturation of the 60’s cultural revolution, he declared in A New Word– A New World:

“We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else’s home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of preexisting cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces…..We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible for nothing outside ourselves, for we are the kingdom.” (“Paganism in Today’s Culture,” Dr. Peter Jones)  
 
It's in this light that political correctness (the public advocacy of vice) with its speech codes and hate crime laws are seen as modern-day Pharisaic legalism. It's no coincidence that the primary enforcers of this legalistic evil are organizations such as the ACLU, described by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, as being 'reminiscent of a temple board meeting' of atheist Jews: 
 
  "The spokesmen for groups like the Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Veterans of America or National Gay and Lesbian Task Force are all too often Jewish. Many of the member organizations of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice are Jewish. The membership of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)...is disproportionately high in Jews."  (America's Real War, Rabbi Daniel Lapin)
 
Surely one of the most bizarre and inconprehensible phenomena in contemporary political life, said Lapin,

is this assault that secular Jewish representatives are carrying out against religious Christian conservatives...They are targeting Christian political candidates and the Christians who back them..." 
 
 Secular Jews are the biggest anti-semites of all. Yet, like the Pharisaic self-righteous hypocrites they are, they hide behind the Holocaust and hurl vicious allegations of antisemitism against all who resist their program of evil:
 
"Let's not pretend that this is merely politics; it is bigotry...To attempt to intimidate (Christians) into being afraid to speak openly of their beliefs is...one of the most foolhardy things the Jewish community has ever done. It is immoral (and) hypocritical." (ibid, Rabbi Daniel Lapin)
 
Many years ago, a Russian rabbi pleaded with one of his congregants, Leon Bronstein, to avoid involving Jews in the Bolshevik Revolution. Bronstein, known to his followers as Leon Trotsky, defiantly informed the rabbi that it was his "Jewish values" that guided him toward socialistic revolution for the overthrow and destruction of the 'old order,' Christianity and Orthodox Judaism. The rabbi famously responded, "Yes, it is the Trotskys who make revolutions, but it is the Bronsteins who pay the price."  (ibid)
 
From Karl Marx to Trotsky and the murderous Bolsheviks---all are atheist Jews who rejected the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Moses and embraced instead, modernized Gnostic pagan and pantheist 'wisdom traditions,' and Illuminist ideologies otherwise known as the politics of revolution---progressivism, nihilism, socialism, communism, scientism, positivism, and materialism.
 
In other words, said Rabbi Lapin, Jews who abandon Jewish tradition usually embrace socialism (or one of its variants such as liberalism) as their new religion. Similarly, the same thing occurs when gentiles abandon Christian tradition. When they succeed in their destructive goals, it is often the faithful, both faithful Jews and orthodox Christians, who are left to face the horrific consequences.
 
In the essay, "Everything Must Change," Dr. Peter Jones, adjunct professor at Westminster Seminary, provides a time-line of events briefly detailing America's abandonment of its' Christian tradition and its' replacement by pagan and pantheist Gnosticism.
 
According to Jones, after the solid theological days of early 20th century Evangelicalism, which defined itself according to the great fundamentals of the faith, much of Christianity turned to a more sensational, experience-oriented "fundamentalism" that got caught up in the power of television (with its inevitable scandals), mega-church commercialism and cheap shot religion evidenced in such expressions as "God-hates-fags." The culture began to see Evangelicalism as a mindless, even dangerous religion.  This paved the way for the sixties Cultural Revolution.
 
 Appearing at first to be another generational round of student dissent, the Sixties movement actually redefined the nature of man and the world.  Moreover, it unleashed rebellion against every vestige of authority. In the place of authority, envy-fueled egalitarianism reigned, aided by postmodern deconstruction. Now all truth became relative and so-called free-sex became resistant to normative heterosexual gender roles and has since morphed into a utopian vision for a pan-sexual/omni-gendered society.
 
The pan-sexual culture of love-not-war, of LSD trips, occultism and Eastern meditation, of diversity and tolerance has in our own time become the gateway for "can't-we-all-get-along" interfaith occult neo-paganism, with its techniques of yoga, mysticism, Enneagram, meditation and new contemplative and/or centering prayer.
 
America's post-Christian, drug, porn, sex-soaked omni-gendered occult pagan polytheist paradigmn has become the dominant worldview of contemporary culture, appealing to the social and intellectual elite, in whose hands are the levers of social control (media, politics, business). These opinion-shapers, with little opposition, are now articulating a religiously pagan worldview for the life of the planetary community. These cultural progressives see no problem with mixing "new church" (pagan religion) and "state" (electoral politics).  
 
Meanwhile, some Christians have discovered a more biblically-based traditional theology and practice. Others, calling themselves Emergent or "Progressive" have refused the route of past historic Christian wisdom, and have gone in the only other possible intellectual direction, "Christian" liberalism. With Liberal apostasy, they change everything about orthodoxy, denying creation ex nihilo in favor of some form evolutionary 'Christianity' and the atoning death of Christ for sinners and the great solas of the Reformation in favor of elements of pagan spirituality-global interfaith, subjective mysticism and monism.
 
With faithful, orthodox Christianity now seriously marginalized,
 
"... many younger Christians are seeking social acceptance and popularity with the dominant post Christian culture via an atonement-less, syncretistic social gospel. The world's rejection of Christianity is cleverly blamed on narrow old-fashioned traditions, not the scandal of the Cross. The seduction of this pseudo-gospel, promoted by major Christian leaders and Christian publishing houses, is powerful."
 
As an icecap of Gnostic-pagan pan-sexual, egalitarian socialism moves relentlessly across America, sowing apostasy, breakdown, occultism, discord, envy, hate, imbecility, immorality, crime, and unnaturalness, it is not good news for the faithful, nor for what yet remains of Americas traditional order, freedoms, and Constitutional rights.  But one thing will never change said Dr. Jones:
 
"JESUS REIGNS. His death for sinners remains forever efficacious. He is building his truly global church, and, as Martin Luther knew, "he will win the battle." The serious question now is, as another hymn asks: "Who is on the Lord's side?"

The Men of Sodom Declare War on the Body of Christ

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Androgyny: The Pagan Ideal

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And these are the crimes against nature said Augustine,

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

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

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

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

Envy: The Hideous Spirit Fueling Equality Mongering

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

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

When excellence cannot be acknowledged the underlying sickness is envy: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Envy, said St. Gregory of Nyssa is,

"The passion which causes evil, the father of death, the first entrance for sin, the root of wickedness, the birth of sorrow, the mother of misfortune, the basis of disobedience, the beginning of shame. Envy banishes us from paradise....Envy made Joseph a slave. Envy is the death-dealing sting, the hidden weapon, the sickness of nature, the bitter poison, the self-willed emaciation, the bitter dart, the nail of the soul, the fire in the heart, the flame burning on the inside..." (Life of Moses, quoted in Death by Envy, Fr. George RA Aquaro, p. 74)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Psychopathy: What Is It?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Margaret Sangers' Malignant Gospel of Redemption and Salvation

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

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

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

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

David Horowitz said of this combatant that it bears a,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Evil Ideas Unleash Evil into the World

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar, writes that this unique concept of man as God's spiritual image-bearer (Imago Dei) gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," and this is

"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights."

The Demise of Imago Dei

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

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

"Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if God does not exist, then the human self cannot exist either...Therefore, he deconstructed the Hindu idea of the soul. When one starts peeling the onion skin of one's psyche, he discovers that there is no solid core at the center of one's being." Thus your sense of self becomes illusion, "Reality is nonself...You don't exist. Liberation, the Buddha taught, is realizing the unreality of your existence." (The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, p. 6)

Jesus Christ to Buddha,

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

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

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

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

Nihilism: The West's Evil Religion of Idolatry, Lies, and Hate

The Christian religion is the religion of our country. From it are derived our prevalent notions of the character of God, the great moral governor of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions.” (William McGuffey, d. May 4, 1873, professor at the University of Virginia, president of Ohio University, and author of McGuffey’s Readers; earstohear.net)
 
 Andre Comte-Sponville, one of France's preeminent atheist philosophers agrees.  In his New York Times bestseller, "The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality," Sponville observes that even though Western and American civilization has become nonreligious it is nevertheless profoundly rooted in transcendent Biblical morality and traditions.   That overt and implied atheism has all but supplanted Biblical beliefs pleases yet simultaneously frightens Sponville as he clearly sees that if Western civilization entirely ceases to be Christian it will fall into something like a refined nihilism.  And if we believe that nothing remains,
 
"....we might as well throw in the towel at once.   We would have nothing left to oppose to either fanaticism from without or to nihilism from within---and, contrary to what many people seem to think, nihilism is the primary danger.  We would belong to a dead civilization, or at least a dying one....Wealth has never sufficed to make a civilization, poverty, even less so.  Civilizations require culture, imagination, enthusiasm and creativity, and none of these things come without courage, work and effort."    Without these necessities, "Good night...the Western world has decided to replace faith with somnolence." (pp. 28-29)
 
Sponville admits that in his younger years he had believed in the supernatural God of Revelation and been raised a Christian.  Up till around the age of eighteen his faith was powerful. But then he embraced evolutionary scientism and fell away, and this falling away said Sponville, was liberating because for the liberated autonomous 'self' whose life no longer has any ultimate meaning or purpose there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not live in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves.
 
But the lies, moral corruption and perverse license—the nihilism—Sponville rejoices in becomes an unbearable source of horror and dread when reproduced in millions of souls throughout the West and America.  He is right to fear the spread of nihilism, for when multiplied by millions it means there is no longer an ultimate, transcendent source of unchanging truth and moral law independent of sinful men, and as Sponville knows, therefore dreads, the nihilism is the father of violence:
 
" The use of the lie reveals the liar as a person of evil intentions.  He who tells lies as a way of getting ahead lacks a love of truth (he or she is) a self-centered dissimulator, cunningly manipulating his fellowmen for his own evil purposes."   (The Roots of Violence, Rev. Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., p.29)
 
 Nihilism is a philosophical viewpoint that argues that life is without objective meaning, purpose, intrinsic value, or inherent truth and morality as all truth and morals are abstractly contrived. Nihilism also takes epistemological, ontological, and metaphysical forms which mean respectively that knowledge is not possible and reality does not exist. This takes us to mereological nihilism, the ultimate engine of meaninglessness. Mereological nihilism is a counter-intuitive view of reality positing that since all that exists is energy then material objects with parts do not exist, thus the material world full of objects with parts that we see and experience is just a product of human misperception.

Nihilism is the philosophy of Western global elites and of the ruling elites of both Western Europe and the United States.   It was 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 force and the threat of violence, the Revelation of God, the Christian Church, virtue, immutable truth, marriage, the two created sexes, your children, your humanity, your wealth, your home, your business, and your Constitutional rights become whatever nihilist agents of violence and the mobs in back of them want them to be or not to be from one moment to the next.
 
What nihilism has already led to in England, said Nate Steuer of Jeremiah Cry 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,' and the homosexual-rights movement is so rooted in England that Christians are afraid to go 'into the streets and preach,' fearing what the LBGT community will do."  ("Fate of Christianity in UK not too far from U.S., warns evangelist," Chris Woodward, OneNewsNow.com, July 8, 2014)
 
Evolutionary scientism is another form of nihilism leading in practice to dehumanization, demoralization, reckless irresponsibility and genocide.   It is a sham science said G.K. Chesterton.  It is a license by which the stupidest,
 
 "...or wickedest action is supposed to become reasonable or respectable, not by having found a reason in scientific fact, but merely by having found any sort of excuse in scientific language."  The program and attitude of scientism is a "serpent....as slippery as an eel," a "demon...as elusive as an elf," an "evil and elusive creature."   (The Restitution of Man: C.S. Lewis and the Case against Scientism, Michael D. Aeschliman, p. 43) 
 
Evolutionary scientism has amply demonstrated itself as a virulently anti-human, catastrophically destructive, demonically murderous worldview. In just the first eighty-seven years of the twentieth century, violent spirits who love evil and devouring words and breathe out slaughter and death brutally exterminated between 100-170 million un-evolved 'subhuman' men, women, and children in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.
 
In the Soviet Union, the Triune God-and-human hating nihilist of violence, Vladimir Lenin, exulted that,
 
"Darwin put an end to the belief that the animal and vegetable species bear no relation to one another (and) that they were created by God, and hence immutable." (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9)
 
In other words, the 'death' of the God of Revelation allows unfettered violence against millions of people because they are no longer the immutable image-bearers of the Triune God but rather expendable products of evolution on a par with slime, weeds, slugs and rocks.  Empowered by evolutionary scientism, Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death. He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species." 
 
Fueled by hate, contempt and murderous rage it was Lenin who "decided who should disappear by virtue of having been condemned to the dustbin of history." From the moment Lenin made the "scientific" decision that the bourgeoisie represented a stage of humanity that evolution had surpassed, "its liquidation as a class and the liquidation of the individuals who actually or supposedly belonged to it could be justified." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)
 
In Nazi Germany evolutionary scientism resulted in gas chambers, ovens, and the liquidation of eleven million "useless eaters" and other undesirables.
 
Alain Brossat draws the following conclusions about the two regimes of nihilism, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and the ties that bind them:
 
"The 'liquidation' of the Muscovite executioners, a close relative of the 'treatment' carried out by Nazi assassins, is a linguistic microcosm of an irreparable mental and cultural catastrophe that was in full view on the Soviet Stage. The value of human life collapsed, and thinking in categories replaced ethical thought…In the discourse and practice of the Nazi exterminators, the animalization of Other…was closely linked to the ideology of race. It was conceived in the implacably hierarchical racial terms of "subhumans" and "supermen"…but in Moscow in 1937, what mattered…was the total animalization of the Other, so that a policy under which absolutely anything was possible could come into practice." (Black Book of Communism, p. 751)
 
As in England, evolutionary scientism has replaced the God of Revelation, thus with the animalization of Americans millions of unborn humans have already been aborted, growing numbers of unwanted adults euthanized and late-term unborn babies cruelly dismembered.  
 
 Writing in, "New York Abortion Bill Allows Shooting Babies Through the Heart With Poison to Kill Them" Steven Ertelt reports that New York is already the abortion/murder capital of the United States, with practically no oversight of the industry.   Throughout the second trimester, developing babies can be completely dismembered,
 
"... even when they can feel pain (by) pulling the baby out piece by piece until the mother’s uterus is empty. After the abortion, the abortionist must reassemble the child’s body to ensure nothing has been left inside the child’s mother." (LifeNews.com | 5/20/14 6:28 PM)
 
What nihilists now demand for late-term abortions that will be legalized in New York by the abortion-expanding Women’s Equality Act, is the murder of babies,
 
"... by sliding a needle filled with a chemical agent, such as digoxin, into the beating heart, before being delivered."
 
Then there is Wisconsin-based abortionist Dennis Christensen and his partner Bernard Smith who have performed 85,000 to 95,000 abortions in a 40 year period:
 
So I see it as a calling, I guess,” Christensen said. “But I’ve been called, I’ve served and now I’d like to call someone else.”  (Abortionist Who’s Killed 95,000 Babies in Abortions: “I See It as a Calling” Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com, 7/7/14)
 
Something "called him" to murder 95,000 babies, but it wasn't the Holy God of Revelation.
 
When for millions of nihilists the God of Revelation does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose with neither hope of an afterlife nor any accountability to their Maker for their actions here in this world, then men no longer have reason and purpose for being good, thus are free to be evil.  They are at liberty to invoke meaningless law and perverted justice to destroy freedom, dismember babies, and force disordered appetites upon men, women, and children.  They are free to accuse the good man of evil, to enslave other people and deprive them of life-sustaining electricity, gas, and water.  With this freedom they vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others and throw our borders open to floods of illegals, rapists, drug-lords, terrorists, pedophiles, murderers and other sinister individuals.
 
Nihilists can freely lie so as to "normalize" whatever wicked fantasies and schemes they desire, such as global warming/cooling/change, redistributive justice, common core, 'gay' equality and Decadence Festivals:   
 
 “The Southern Decadence Festival is one of our nation’s most notorious celebrations of sodomy, public sex acts, prostitution, drunkenness, and worse, but is by no means the only such festival….decadence festivals are held over and across post-Christian America and Western Europe as well as in Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Thailand, Brazil, Belarus, Ireland, Japan, Scotland, China, S. Africa, India and Taipei.” (Sex slaves, sexual anarchy and decadence festivals: ominous signs of something really rotten,” L. Kimball, Renew America, Oct. 25, 2012)

A society of nihilists is a welcome mat to human predators of every stripe from drug lords, ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood to flesh-peddlers and the world's criminal elite: the occult Luciferian New World Order super-wealthy criminal consortium and their merciless leftwing and rightwing allies.   This cohort of sinister nihilists believe in nothing, know only hate, contempt, violence, greed and egotism and share a foundational hatred of the Tri-Personal God of Revelation, faithful Christians and Jews and  traditional Christian grounded Western and American civilization.
 
In the impeccably documented book, "Sinisterism: Secular Religion of the Lie," Bruce Walker describes the super-wealthy consortium and their like-minded allies as Sinisterists, making political labels like Far Right (Nazis/Fascists), liberals and Far Left (Progressives, Bolsheviks, Marxists, Communists) and even like-minded Radical Muslims the same thing.
 
What unite all Sinisterists are their hatreds:
 
"They hate Christians...Jews...America (and) Israel.  They hate truth.  They hate the very idea of truth.  They hate the idea of humans as unique and special in the universe.  They hate the idea of a great moral purpose unfolding in our lives.  Sinisterism is a bundle of connected hatreds.  For the sake of their hatreds, Sinisterists lust for power." (preface)
 
Because Sinisterists hate the idea of man as God's spiritual image-bearer they have 'killed' the Triune God and forced nihilistic Darwinism upon us because it reduces mankind to less than nothing.  They also invent words and sound-bite phrases such as heterosexist, homophobe, global change and nonexistent categories of mankind such as "racial species" and "emerging genders" that imprison thought.   Following are some other examples:
 
1. Multiculturalism: the stealthy destruction of America's traditional Christian based culture by insidious elevation of pagan and pantheist cultures and belief systems in the name of politically correct tolerance, pluralism and inclusion.
 
2.'Gay rights/'gay' marriage: rebellion against and negation of the two created sexes, procreation, and the idea of normal.
 
3. Political correctness, speech codes, sensitivity training, and hate crime laws:  psychic-cages for the minds of traditional-values Americans.
 
4. Perverse sex education: As was the case in the Soviet Union, its ultimate purpose is the subversion and perversion of our youth---the awakening of the Devil, as Karl Marx's comrade Bakunin admitted.
 
5. Critical theory: the mindless vomiting out of destructive criticism upon everything good, true, excellent, normal, and traditional.
 
6. Global change, Agenda 21, Green Movement, redistributive justice: the evisceration of our standard of living and individual liberties in order to 'save the planet' — in other words, penury, misery, death and slavery on behalf of Gaia.
 
7. Sustainability: Extreme population control calling for the annihilation of billions of people to achieve spiritual communism.
 
8. Religious pluralism: the erasure of faithful Judaism, Christian theism and America's founding Christian-based worldview by way of elevating Wicca, animism, Islam, New Age occult spirituality, Gnostic paganism, Buddhism,  shamanism, goddess worship, Luciferian Masonry and atheism in the name of politically correct tolerance and inclusion.
 
In order to destroy rational thinking, nihilists use words and phrases (i.e., change, "make love not war," "we are Trayvon" "evolution is an established fact of science") to create images rather than ideas and then concentrate on endless repetition of the same word-pictures,
 
"...to create a hypnotic effect to defend an otherwise hopeless case.  Sinisterists use the same words over and over again."   (p.12)
 
Nihilism’s black heart is the worship of lies, particularly the Big Lie of evolution.   'Elite' transnational Robert Muller, father of Common Core Curriculum and former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall all politically incorrect thinkers, especially anti-evolutionists:
 
"...all those who hold contrary beliefs" to politically correct thought favored for the "next  phase of evolution" will "disappear."  A hellish fate awaits all who resist political and spiritual globalization, "…those who criticize the UN are anti-evolutionary, blind, self-serving people.  Their souls will be parked in a special corral of the universe for having been retarding forces, true aberrations in the evolution and ascent of humanity."  (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 133)
 
With malice aforethought, sinister nihilists have dumbed-down Westerners and Americans by infiltrating our education institutions and even our seminaries with nihilist philosophies, propaganda and schemes such as evolutionary scientism, perverse sex education, so-called 'higher Biblical criticism,' critical theory, multiculturalism and revised history. 
 
As evolutionary scientism and the relativity of truth are fatal doctrines-- types of nihilism that deny objective truth and reality--- they result in the rapid disintegration of critical thinking, faith in God, respect and manners resulting in a twisted, inverted society dominated by moral imbeciles---narcissistic despots, thugs, human parasites and bizarre polymorphously perverse beings--- at every level of government and society who know how they feel and what they covet and are thus entitled to but can't think straight, can't spell, and don't know right from wrong.
 
It should be obvious by now, said Walker, that the relations of people in American and Western society are growing coarser,
 
".....more dishonest....shallower....lonelier...more desperate for the narcotics of power, applause and fear as we perceive ourselves moving closer to the status of gods and goddesses.  If we choose, as individuals, that idolatry, then we are doomed.  All the dystopian nightmares of Orwell, Bradbury, Huxley and others will become real all too soon....we will (either) surrender to thugs governing enslaved nations or embittered terrorists." (p. 252)
 
Our so-called “scientifically enlightened” age is an age of nihilism.  Ecstatic with the voluptuous delight of destruction which rolls humans into satanic depths, nihilists keep pushing society to the brink of social chaos and suicide:
 
The Modern Liberal will invariably (and) inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. When I say the Modern Liberal is morally and intellectually retarded at the level of the five-year old child, it is not hyperbole: its diagnosis.” (Evan Sayet, The Kindergarten of Evil, evansayet.com) 
 
Nihilism is lawlessness, idolatry, violence, perversion, fear, terrors of mind, and horrors of conscience and loss of true freedom since the despair of nihilism ends in man’s slavery to his dark side, death and damnation.
 
In his poem "The Second Coming," Yeats reveals the murderous delight of de Sade's, Nietzsche's, Marx's, and Callicles modern offspring:
 
"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are
Full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand."
 
If Western and American nihilists continue to set the God of Revelation aside in favor of "self" and what they really do know are lies and empty, shallow, meaningless evil, then a tyranny of evil will come upon us swiftly and terribly.  But there is another path before us: the way of repentance, truth, decency and God's Divine Truth.  His eternally unchanging Truth will set us free. We should choose the path of Truth and goodness:
 
"On that choice hangs the fate of humanity. People will either embrace goodness or deny that goodness can exist and commit moral suicide (and) worship The Lie."   (ibid, Walker, p. 252)
 
People who choose the way of true truth will find the goodness and Light of God.  As they follow the Way of Truth they will stumble sometimes, occasionally journey down blind alleys, and perhaps be on the wrong side of causes at times, but they,
 
"...will never lose hope or the help of other normal people and the Blessed Creator of the Universe." (ibid, p. 233)
 
The narrow way leads ever up toward truth, light, beauty, goodness, courage, hope, peace and eternal physical life in an unimaginably beautiful Paradise.   The other way is a broad highway spilling into a downward spiraling vortex marked by the despair of nihilism, the darkness of lies, the sulphuric stench of soul-destroying hate, and the horror of nothingness finally issuing into an eternity in outer darkness.

The Wicked Nanny: Symptom of America's Dying Soul

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dr. Gonzalez concurs,

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Scourge of Covetousness and Envy

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

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

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

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

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

Property is,

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

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

America's Dying Soul

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Way Forward

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

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

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

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

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

America's Sauruman and Shadow-Bred Orcs

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2014 @ Linda Kimball

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)

Depravity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 'Gay' Juggernaut and Evolutionary Thinking: The Connections

Under the Obama administration America has become the world's perverse-sex cop intervening in the workings of other nations where sodomy, lesbianism and worse arenot promoted and tolerated. America's tax-payer financed State Department and other federal agencies have not only strengthened the work already done in pursuit of this evil but have initiated additional efforts to crush dissent in defense and promotion  of all things unnatural.(Obama offers plan for U.S. to be global LGBT sex cop, Bob Unruh, WND, 12/7, 2011)

The gay-juggernaut, moral relativism, unfettered killing defined as 'choice,' pornography as a Constitutional right, apostasy, and other social evils have been unleashed within America and onto the world because in post-Christian America, natural science and evolutionary thinking issuing in neo-pagan and pantheist man-centered universe models in many permutations, both secular and theological, have supplanted the universe and order of being created by the Triune God.   This catastrophic evil has resulted in another: the Mind and Authority of Jehovah has been usurped bythe fallen mind and authority of defiant, rebellious men.

Evolutionary biology andman-centered evolutionary cosmologies are fraudulent metaphysical projects that are taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as they are in all aspects of modern thought and experience, especially within the progressive pagan and pantheist community and its' theological counterpart located within the whole body of the Christian Church.

c

Worse, all naturalist conceptions, whether secular atheist or theological, ultimately lack a source for life, consciousness, soul, and personhood as all are merely different expressions of anti-human nihilism which makes man equal to or lower than the nonhuman.   This serves as a license for all manner of crimes against humanity, especially the weakest, the hated, envied, despised and inconvenient.  For example, in paganized America tens of millions of unborn humans have already been liquidated, our youth and now our military sexually perverted and atheitized, and our Constitutional rights trashed while during the 20th century in excess of 160,000,000 unevolved human weeds, useless eaters, and dinosaurs were brutally murdered in one way or another by two evolutionary naturalist regimes: the Soviet Union under Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin and the occult pagan National Socialist Germany under Hitler.

Natural science as the instrument of the will of man and evolutionary thinking are poisoning and destroying America's traditional Christian foundations, including "He made them man and woman" and when the foundations have finally been destroyed, all that is built upon them will be destroyed as well.

The Devil & the Agents of Evil behind the Extermination of Christians

In ‘Largest Massacre of Christians in Syria’ Ignored" Raymond Ibrahim reports that one of worst Christian massacres,

 "...complete with mass graves, tortured-to-death women and children, and destroyed churches—recently took place in Syria, at the hands of the U.S.-supported jihadi “rebels”; and the U.S. government and its “mainstream media” mouthpiece are, as usual, silent (that is, when not actively trying to minimize matters)."  (theaquilareport.com/largest-massacre-of-christians-in-syria-ignored/)

 In other words, the real power behind the massacre of Syrian Christians is our own progressive liberal controlled government.   Though liberals are not the devil they are of one mind with him.   They do his work. 

Though names have changed over time and new members added, it remains the case that behind the Soviet Union, Hitler's National Socialist Reich and US supported jihadis, there has been a powerful financial coterie of dark-minded progressive liberals committed to self-empowerment, revolution and death.  On behalf of a massively-depopulated NWO, from the turn of the century till now, the coterie has been financing catastrophic worldwide revolution and mass murder, particularly of faithful Jews and Christians since the turn of the century.  

Today, like most of our financial, defense, educational, media, music and other cultural and mind-shaping institutions our government is in the hands of amoral progressive liberals, 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 (naturalism):

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

Having rejected the Christian roots of its own civilization, progressive liberalism embraced a new pagan order of beliefs of which Godless Communism (Agenda 21 today), a form of pantheism, was a logical expression. 

In 1954, Whittaker Chambers warned that Western liberal ‘elitists’ were committed to a secret complicity with murderous Communists.  Though they outwardly profess dislike for slave labor camps, purges, MVD, famines, et al, it is only,

 "....because they are afraid of being caught in them.  If they could have Communism without the brutalities of ruling that the Russian experience bred, they have only marginal objections (because they do not find them unjustifiable).  Why should they object?  What else is socialism but Communism with the claws retracted?" (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 253)

 Four years later, Conservative intellectual Frank Meyer summarized the Liberal pathology:

 "...contemporary Liberalism is in agreement with Communism on ---the necessity and desirability of socialism (that) all inherited value---theological, philosophical, political (is) without intrinsic virtue or authority; that therefore, no irreconcilable differences exist between it and Communism..."  (ibid, p. 137)

 Meyer concludes that amoral Liberals are,

 "... unfit for the leadership of a free society, and (are) intrinsically incapable of offering serious opposition to the Communist offensive." (ibid)

 In his book "The Naked Capitalist," W. Cleon Skousen exposes an unholy alliance of evil intentioned progressive liberal bankers and capitalists, American and English and both left and right, who financed the Bolshevik Revolution and the resulting Soviet Union.  Skousen verifies his findings through the writings of Dr. Carroll Quigley, a professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University and mentor to Bill Clinton.

 In his opus, "Tragedy and Hope," Quigley deliberately reveals one of the worlds' best kept secrets: a gargantuan power complex that has been — right from the start — controlling Marxist-Communist-Socialist groups,

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

What this means is that the international financial coterie was the real power behind the following monstrous crimes against humanity:

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

"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, F. M. Pigido -an economist who lived and worked in Ukraine during the Famine of 1932-1933, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)

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

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

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

"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)

The international banker-corporatist coterie financially empowered Marxist Communists to systematically steal the personal property of Russians, confiscate and sexually pervert their children, undermine and destroy the traditional family, homosexualize culture, desecrate and blaspheme churches, crucify thousands of nuns and priests and in general, commit monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

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

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

 In 1947, the progressive liberal head of UNESCO, Julian Huxley, wrote a book titled, "UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy." His book was a blueprint for a socialistic, evolutionary pantheist, collectivist New World Order that called for a single 'new' spirituality — a mixture of Buddhist materialist-pantheism, Luciferian Theosophy, paganized evolutionary Christianity, 'new' pagan Gnosticism, and other occult traditions.  Huxley’s androgynous collectivist system called for one language, one way of thinking, a world food bank, a world bank, and a universal identification system.

 Huxley believed a global order could be brought about by syncretizing Christianity with the 'new' spirituality, thus the task before UNESCO:

 "...is to help the emergence of a single world culture with its own philosophy and background of ideas and with its own broad purpose." (crossroad.to/Quotes/globalism/Julian-Huxley)

 Huxley spoke of two opposing, antithetical worldviews — one founded on supernatural creation ex nihilo and the other on atheist evolutionism, or naturalism — confronting each other from the West and the East. In describing them he said,

 "You may categorize the two philosophies as...individualism versus collectivism or as the American versus the Russian...or as capitalism versus communism, or as Christianity versus Marxism. Can these opposites be reconciled, this antithesis be resolved in a higher synthesis? I believe...this can happen...through the inexorable dialectic of evolution." (ibid)

Naturalistic evolutionary theism is the "higher synthesis" resulting from the inexorable dialectic of evolution: the reconciliation of opposites. 

Why did Quigley expose the existence of the global financial coterie? Because he says, it is now too late for the little people to turn the tide. He urges them to not fight the noose which is already around their necks, for they will only hang themselves:

"On the other hand, those who go along with the immense pressure which is beginning to be felt by all humanity will eventually find themselves in a man-made millennium of peace and prosperity." (The Naked Capitalist, Skousen, pp. 4-6)

Occult spiritual, transnational progressive Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall faithful Jews, Christians and other dissenters.  All those,

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

In other words, the 'chosen ones' are evolving into Transcended Masters and gods and hell awaits all 'selfish' ones such as faithful Jews and Christians who cling to God’s Revelation to man and particularly the Genesis account of creation and refuse to sell their God-created souls for admittance to the NWO will be exterminated along with all other dissenters who stand in the way. 

 Progressive Liberalism is Insanity

Modern America is no longer Christian. Insanity-inducing Liberalism has captured the hearts of millions of Americans, including great numbers of 'sinless,' self-serving Christians.  As Wiker observed, Liberalism is our State worship, which is why America has fallen down the rabbit hole into the upside-down realm of Mad Hatters and Red Queens.   

While thousands of self-serving Christians flock to liberalized rock' n' roll churches replete with needs-based programs, gyms, pools, and coffee lounges it is the faithful Church that  defends sanity and everything worth living and dying for, said ex-Communist Dougas Hyde.   Hyde, a new convert to the Catholic Church and the early Conservative cause said,

 "The sanest things on earth are those for which the allegedly reactionary, unscientific, obscurantist Church stands and for which she is doing battle." (Nash, p. 52)

 Writing in agreement, John Hallowell argued,

 "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." (Hallowell, 1950, Nash, p. 53)

 The crisis is spiritual.  It is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of a transcendent or spiritual reality and of his progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent (naturalistic) conception of reality.  The only way that modern man and society can find redemption from the tyranny of evil said Hallowell, is through,

 "....a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ..." 

 We must repent and return to the supernatural Triune God as He revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ and we must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin, said Hallowell. 

To Richard Weaver, no concept gave deeper insight into the enigma that is man "than original sin."  Evil is not just a bad dream, warned Weaver.  It is a "subtle, protean force," and original sin is a "parabolical expression" of the "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing."  (ibid)

Eliseo Vivas concurred.    Inside every man resides "brutality" and a "natural tendency" to define "value in terms of his own interest." (ibid)

For many early Conservatives the deepest lesson of the murderous twentieth century was the lesson of evil, of original sin.  The implications of sin were obvious to them, and as madness, mayhem and murder sweep with ever greater speed and force across our nation accompanied by the rise of socialism in tandem with the brutal extermination of Christians throughout the Middle East by U.S. government funded jihadis and the growth of persecution against American Christians, the lesson of evil, of original sin, must become obvious to modern Americans.   We must wake up before it’s too late.

Early Conservatives strongly advocated that we revitalize the concept of sin, repent of our man-centered society and our accommodating liberalized churches and turn toward an intellectually and spiritually God-centered society and faithful Church if we are to find redemption from the tyranny of evil capturing our hearts and sweeping over our nation, even into its very foundations.

Evolutionary Humanism: the Religion of Antichrist and Man as God

“There is no place in the Humanist worldview for either immortality or God in the valid meanings of those terms. Humanism 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.     Corliss Lamont, "The Philosophy of Humanism" 1982

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power.” George Orwell, 1984  

Orwell’s terrifying dystopian novel ‘1984’ reveals the cunning methods, diabolical mindset and ultimate goal of power for the sake of power driving all evolutionary humanist agendas from the 20th century to America’s ruling class humanists.  

First, replace Jehovah with natural science and evolution in order to dehumanize and demoralize the masses.  This move will result in a transformation of consciousness leading to the death of Jehovah in the hearts of the masses.  Second, accustom morally corrupt  masses to worship the State, the god that gives moral sanction to sin and transforms the stones of this world into bread.

America’s ruling class, or Party, consists of omnipotent god-men who pray 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)

Their souls are turned inward, away from the Light of the Holy God and into the infinite darkness and smallness of ‘self.’ Their conscience is depraved and dead to sin, and a depraved conscience is the most destructive force in political, social, economic, religious and cultural life. This is because though the intellect remains intact, reason is warped and inverted, thus useless for pursuit of the good, the just and the true. Guided by a depraved conscience, reason is used in pursuit of gratification of ‘self’ at any cost. This is sophistry.

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

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

With every day the previous day’s Big Lies, power-grabbing, betrayals, deliberate trouble-making, sexualization and perversion of our children, and other acts of evil are appear more numerous and brazen than the day before.

It is intellectually impossible to understand the sinister worldview of evolutionary humanism in either its secular materialist or pantheist forms nor the utterly perverse, satanically inverted, nihilistic paradigm humanists have forced into every institution of American culture encompassing the family, media, education, arts, music, law, politics, medicine, history, and even the Church unless it is viewed through the lens of dialectical materialism.

Evolutionary humanism is of the worldview of pagan monism and is held in common by pantheism and spiritualism and dates back to antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems.  It is a syncretic mixture of ancient Greek materialism, Hermetic magic, esoteric Kabbalah, alchemical scientism and Buddhist nihilism and refers to the idea that the universe of matter possesses the emergent properties of divinity, spirit, mind, choice, and action. Thus the Hindu-style evolutionary theist Teilhard de Chardin could teach that after millions of years of evolution the properties of spirit and divinity had finally emerged, hence all matter is now spiritual and divine.  With the divinization of matter the most highly evolved individuals are able to claim possession of a spark of divinity, making them gods who can do whatever they please.   

Evolutionary humanism is philosophically nihilist as it holds that there is no Jehovah ‘above,’ no hell below, no individual souls, no angels and demons and no unchanging truths, principles, moral standards, meaning or purpose for life since everything existing, even the conscious life of man, is an aspect of the universe of matter in motion.

Not only is the earth alive and evolving up, up, up on an evolutionary escalator to a mystical, magical Singularity/Omega, but so too are the Bible, Christianity, the Constitution, America’s sovereignty, history and society as they are also living aggregates of matter in a continuous state of change.

 Since the end of WW II, secular evolutionary humanism has been bleeding over into its' pantheist counterpart (Cosmic Humanism).  Brooks Alexander observes that because secular humanism and pantheist humanism share evolution in common and 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)

Evolutionary trans-humanism is an example of the cross-pollination described by Brooks. Trans-humanism is a powerfully influential global ‘elite’ movement that long ago leap-frogged off of Darwin’s biological conception to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s quasi-Hindu pantheist idea.  Now some trans-humanists believe they are on the verge of godhood by way of occult rituals, others believe highly evolved man is now ready to initiate a radical transfiguration of himself by merging his brain with technology with the long term goal of eventually transferring his ‘essence’ out of his decaying body and into an advanced robo-machine.  A Daily Mail article reports that,

...inserting technology into human brains is not the only thing going on. Some scientists also want to insert human brains into technology" ("Hitler would have loved The Singularity: Mind-blowing benefits of merging human brains and computers," Ian Morris, 6 February 2012, dailymail.co.uk)

 In “Secular Humanism is Evolution Atheism,” Ellis Washington, an adjunct professor at the National Paralegal College where he teaches Constitutional Law, writes that the “humanistic system of values has now become the predominant way of thinking in most of the power centers of society” including,

“…public schools K-12, as well as college, graduate schools, medical schools, business schools, journalism schools with administrators and faculty membership holding evolution atheist worldviews at the 90-95 percentile and conservative faculty (if any) are on average below 5 percent.  This egregious lack of intellectual diversity of America’s teachers and professors must change if there is hope for America’s survival.” (Washington, Renew America, Oct. 12, 2013) 

At the turn of the century, a brilliant visionary, the English Catholic theologian Robert Hugh Benson, foresaw the stunning events in connection with the sweeping transformation of consciousness we are witnessing here in America resulting in the wholesale rejection of the living God of Revelation in favor of evolutionary humanism.

Benson saw through the pretenses of secular humanism and its primary doctrine evolution, leading him to describe it and its’ ideological movement, Communism, as “quiet pantheism.”

In his book, “Lord of the World,” Benson predicted that evolutionary thinking would prepare apostate Westerners and Americans to not only embrace the ‘new’ pantheist humanist religion but to worship and adore Antichrist, for this human-god is the first perfected product of nature and evolutionary change.   Mr. Felsenburgh (the Antichrist) is 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)

America had fallen into darkness, split asunder by earthquakes, and with the forced exile of the remaining faithful, Jehovah was finally gone.  Now at long last man’s natural Savior has arisen and the reign of God has really begun, and we are “all partakers of God” because God is in all men:

 “Jehovah has fallen. He is in His grave.”  In His place is the evolved Son of Man, “a god because human and a man because so divine.” (pp. 93, 95)

Falling Stars, Damnable Heresy, and the Spirit of Evolution

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

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

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

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

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

Second, the specific denial of the Father logically negates Jesus the Christ, the Word who was in the beginning (John 1), was with God, and is God from the creation of all things (1 John 1).  In a pre-incarnate theophany, Jesus is the Angel who spoke “mouth to mouth” to Moses (Num. 12:6-9; John 9:20) and at sundry times and in many ways “spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, last of all…” (Hebrews 1:1)  Jesus the Christ is the incarnate Son of God who is the life and light of men, who by His shed blood on the Cross died for the remission of all sins and bestowed the privilege of adoption on all who put their faith in Him. Therefore, to deny the Holy Father is to logically deny the deity of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, hence,

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

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

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

Falling Stars and Damnable Heresy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Pouring more contempt on them he asked,

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

 Concerning Matthew 19:5:

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

 And concerning Cor. 15:21-22:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(2 Thes. 2:11) Strong Delusion in Our Age of Scientism and Evolution

Almost thirty years ago, two well-respected social science scholars, William Sims Bainbridge and Rodney Stark, found themselves alarmed by what they saw as a rising tide of irrationalism, superstition and occultism--- channeling cults, spirit familiars, Wicca, Satanists, goddess worshippers, 'gay' shamans, and other such occult madness — at every level of society, even unto the highest corridors of power. Like many scientists, they were equally concerned by Christian opposition to naturalistic evolution.

As is common in the science community, Bainbridge and Stark assumed the cause of these social pathologies were somehow due to fundamentalism, their term for authentic Christian theism. Yet to their credit, the research they undertook to discover the cause was conducted both scientifically and with great integrity. What they found was so startling that it caused them to re-evaluate their attitude toward Christian theism. Their findings led them to say:

"It would be a mistake to conclude that fundamentalists oppose all science (when in reality they but oppose) a single theory (that) directly contradicts the bible. But it would be an equally great mistake to conclude that religious liberals and the irreligious possess superior minds of great rationality, to see them as modern personalities who have no need of the supernatural or any propensity to believe unscientific superstitions. On the contrary...they are much more likely to accept the new superstitions. It is the fundamentalists who appear most virtuous according to scientific standards when we examine the cults and pseudo-sciences proliferating in our society today." ("Superstitions ,Old and New," The Skeptical Inquirer (formerly The Zetetic), Vol. IV, No. 4; Summer, 1980, pp. 18, 23, 26, 28, 30)

In more detail they observed that authentic ‘born again’ Christians are far less likely to accept cults and pseudoscientific beliefs while the irreligious (i.e., atheists, pagans, secular humanists, occult New Age, our left-right Ruling Class) and liberalized Christians are open to unscientific notions.  In fact, these two groups are most favorable toward occultism, leading Bainbridge and Stark to conclude their startling findings with this dire warning:

"Those who hope that a decline in traditional religion would inaugurate a new Age of Reason ought to think again....Apparently, when Christianity loses its grip on large numbers of people, deviant religious alternatives arise, and get hold of some of the unchurched... Persons with no religious affiliation are often among the first to toy with novel or exotic supernatural notions and are not the secular rationalists we might want to think them. Cults flourish precisely where the conventional churches are weakest...(also), numbers of unchurched people seek private contact with the supernatural......a further decline in the influence of conventional religion may not inaugurate a scientific Age of Reason but might instead open the floodgates for a bizarre new Age of Superstition." (ibid)

The real measure of one’s worldview resides in how close to reality it conforms.   What Bainbridge and Stark discovered to their utter shock was that authentic Christian theism, which includes the Apostolic Tradition, conforms most closely to reality while modern scientism and evolutionary thinking tied to naturalism, irreligious and liberal Christian assumptions does not.  Worse, it has trapped their minds within a psychic cage, an incredibly powerful idolatrous delusion that has been pervasive in the West and America since the eighteenth century.

 The strong delusion emerged during the Renaissance when Christians at the highest levels of Church and society had turned back to the ancient occult Wisdom Traditions flooding into Christendom at that time. Then it worked through the mystic Joachim of Fiore and other neo-Gnostics like Hegel, Auguste Comte, Marx, Darwin and Teilhard de Chardin to change time through the inversion of the order of history. In our own time it has so thoroughly captured the minds of modern Westerners and Americans that they are no longer able to conceive of an original good creation that has fallen because evolution has convinced them to think of everything in the past as consisting of apelike cavemen and the superstitious primitivism from which they, the evolved ones, have ascended on high.  The sweeping acceptance of evolution has,

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

So complete has the transformation of consciousness been that the spirit of delusion has successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism, thereby recasting Jesus as a mere man and the Church Fathers as lower order primitives ,who rather than viewing the Genesis account as myth and poetry as today's 'enlightened' theologians see it, actually believed that the Genesis account, particularly the first three books, are Divinely inspired text that tells of actual historic events and people that must be correctly understood and accepted as truth even while explaining that poetic and anthropomorphic statements are not to be taken literally but understood symbolically.

With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, the evolutionarily-enlightened now believe that Lucifer is not the fallen devil nor have men fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual and moral perfection. Self-perfecting man no longer needs the living, Holy God as the idea of "conscious evolution" means he can save himself, and perhaps even attain god-hood.

The English moral philosopher Mary Midgley (b. 1919) synthesized the strong delusion into the Escalator Myth, a humanist anthropolatrous dream that has encouraged man to worship himself as god.  Humanist sages, from Comte through Julian Huxley to more recent fellow travelers have steadily encouraged us to build up,

“…our appreciation of the human race into a full-scale edifice of self-worship.  Science itself has (become) a central shrine within this temple….Thus progress (smoothly dove-tailed with evolution) has increasingly appeared as an escalator, powered by our own remarkable abilities and bearing us---perhaps with cybernetic additions and perhaps becoming immortal---reliably on towards a distant and mysterious Omega Point….So vast is the scale of this dream that no actual downturn in human affairs has yet really managed to dent it.” (All Too Human, Mary Midgley, theguardian.com, Dec. 2008)

In this grand unfolding dream, history gradually progresses upward from nonliving matter to the ape-man, then to animism, then polytheism followed by monotheism and thence to science and evolution, which finally liberated men from the gods they had created in their distant primitive past.  Having ascended to higher-order thinking man is now free to make God over in his own image and believe that only the scientific and evolutionary-minded are the real adults, the higher-order elite-thinkers, the Gnostikoi who ‘know’ that the world is billions of years old because the high priests of scientism (New Oracles of Delphi) have revealed this ‘truth’ to them.  All others, especially despicable “fundamentalist” Christian theists who refuse to accept evolution and the revelations of the High Priests are obviously lower-order primitives clinging to the dark ages.

However, the dream is untrue.  It is an inverted order of history, the reverse of facts:

"....human history can now be hesitantly traced back as an unbroken narrative to 4000 B.C. The facts must not, however, be twisted to suit the fallacy of necessary human progress. For the picture emerging....is one of the Fall of Man in historic terms as well as his rise; it is a picture ...more of degradation than of success; it is a picture of monotheism breaking down into polytheism and of the struggle to return to monotheism. The establishment view of the history of religion gradually progressing from animism to polytheism, from polytheism to monotheism is the reverse of facts." (The God-Kings and the Titans: The New World Ascendancy in Ancient Times, James Baily, 1973, p. 296)

Delusions: Beguiling Unrealities

In the American Dictionary of the English Language (1828), Noah Webster defines the word delusion as deception, the misleading of the mind, false representation, error or mistake proceeding from false views.  Delusions are beguiling.   They mesmerize and transfix the mind. They blind it to reality.

After much thought, C.S. Lewis came to believe that evolutionary thinking was at the center of the delusion.   In a letter to a friend Lewis writes that he is right in "regarding (evolution) as the central and radical lie in the whole web of falsehood that now governs our lives..." and added, "it is not so much your arguments against it as the fanatical and twisted attitudes of its defenders." (Letter to Bernard Acworth, Spt. 13, 1951)

Though Truth will set us free, so thoroughly blinded and beguiled are the defenders of evolution that when Truth is presented to them they willfully refuse to ‘see’ it and immediately scoff, mock and ridicule it, particularly its bearer because they prefer darkness to light, slavery to freedom.

Isaiah 44: 20 describes the deluded person as one who feeds on ashes,

“…a deluded heart misleads him; he cannot save himself, or say, ‘Is not this thing in my right hand a lie?”

The only cure for delusion and spiritual blindness is spiritual regeneration through repentance and submission to God the Father Almighty.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Decalogue shows that the beginning of  idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor). The will of the proud man is not in submission to God but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride leads to contempt for and outright hatred of God the Father Almighty  and neighbor, unchanging truth, moral law, goodness, wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, and institutions in favor of any or all of the following: lying, murderous thoughts, treachery, gluttony, greed, covetousness, lust, hate, cheating, promiscuity, sadism, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, adultery, theft and the dehumanization of other people resulting in psychological and physical slavery, population control schemes, abortion, brutality, terror, mass-murder (genocide) and man-made famines:

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

"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, F. M. Pigido -an economist who lived and worked in Ukraine during the Famine of 1932-1933, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)

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

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

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

"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)

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

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

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

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

“But now in the early twenty-first century, their movement from disregard to desecration to decadence is going mainstream, and the United States is only the lead society among those close to the tipping point.... Soon, as the legalization and then normalization of polyamory, polygamy, pedophilia and incest follow the same logic as that of abortion and homosexuality, the socially destructive consequences of these trends will reverberate throughout society until social chaos is beyond recovery.” (Renaissance: The Power of the Gospel However Dark the Times, Os Guinness, p. 20)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lessons of Evil

In "The High Cost of 'Free," Lloyd S. Pettegrew and Carol A. Vance report that in the Denver arena where Mr. Obama gave his DNC 2008 acceptance speech,

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

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

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

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

Under the pretense of compassion, fairness, equality, 'rights,' fighting poverty, protecting the environment, and granting 'choice' to abortion activists our 'broken' law forcibly takes property from one person and gives it to another.  It takes the wealth of the many and gives it to a favored few.  It gives the power of death to the self-serving few over the lives of the inconvenient and unwanted.   This is legalized murder and plunder and  is common to socialists, communists and others of the totalitarian bent of mind who see plunder  and murder together with forcing everyone to be miserable as a way of putting an end to all conditions that make for envy/covetousness, their own first of all.

The Founders fully recognized that in light of man's sin nature, covetousness/envy could easily become a driving force in politics, so they designed the Constitution to protect our God-given rights of life, liberty and property from the grasping hand of a tyrannical government.  They never intended for law to assume the role of Big Brother granting man-invented 'rights' 'privileges' and 'entitlements' to certain favored groups or individuals:

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

"Envy is rottenness to the bones" (Proverbs 14:30), and whether it is the genocidal socialism of the former Soviet Union, the version espoused by the Nazis or the Americanized socialism that is emerging here, the overarching sentiment is the very same cold-blooded deadly sin---covetousness/envy:

"Marxism has been described as a blood cult, with envy its abiding stimulant, fuel, and motive."  (Joseph Epstein, former editor of The American Scholar, quoted in "Truths About Socialism," Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)

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

"The enemy is the great justification for terror, and the totalitarian state needs enemies to survive.  If it lacks them, it invents them.  Once they have been identified, they are treated without mercy."   Being an enemy is enough, "there is no need actually to have done anything at all."  (The Black Book of Communism, Courtois, Werth, Panne, Paczkowski, Bartosek, Margolin, . p. 747)

The methodology of evil begins by labeling the hated and envied an 'enemy' (i.e. in America--- homophobe, racist, bigot, pro-lifer, traditionalist or anti-Muslim) and then declared a criminal (hateful bigot), which leads to his exclusion from society.   Where power is total, exclusion very quickly leads to arrest and then extermination:

"The leaders of totalitarian regimes saw themselves as the moral guardians of society and were proud of their right to send anyone they chose to their death."  (ibid, p. 748)

If not death then deportation---and no trial necessary:

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

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

The systematic murder of millions of people in the former Soviet Union was primarily facilitated by two things.  First by scientifically animalizing  'others,' the objects of hatred, resentment and envy.   This was achieved by application of the Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking that ultimately enabled Marxists to justify their monstrous crimes against humanity.   Second, by maliciously whipping up and enflaming covetousness/envy within the hearts of the 'oppressed.'

In 1956, Ludwig von Mises exposed the rottenness of envy and resentment fueling the paradoxical reasoning of people who are favorably disposed toward socialism rather than capitalism:

"It is paradoxical indeed that the leaders of these Oriental peoples, while casting longing glances at the prosperity of the Western nations, reject the methods that made the West prosperous and are enraptured by Russian communism that is instrumental in keeping the Russians and their satellites poor. It is still more paradoxical that Americans, enjoying the products of capitalistic big business, exalt the Soviet system and consider it quite "natural" that the poor nations of Asia and Africa should prefer communism to capitalism." (Reactionary Socialism, Mises Daily, Dec. 12, 2011)

Those who prefer the legal plunder or redistributionist policies of socialism,

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

At the end of WW II, dispirited atheist, communist, socialist, progressive and Christian thinkers began to analyze the crisis the war had precipitated and to reconstruct the civilization it had threatened.  Out of these efforts arose the "new conservative" or traditionalist wing of the postwar conservative intellectual movement in America. (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 30)

Their penetrating analysis of the ideas underlying and fueling communism and socialism such as the total immanent society (omnipotent, all-knowing society), Social Darwinism, positivism, rationalism, naturalism, materialism, collectivism, atomistic liberalism and underlying them all, atheism, led many of them to declare that evil ideas working through the minds of men had ultimately unleashed the catastrophic evils that had enveloped much of the world.  Upon this realization many of them either returned or converted to orthodox supernatural Christian theism.

For example, Douglas Hyde, an English ex-Communist and convert to Catholic Christianity emphatically declared:

"The sanest things on earth are those for which the allegedly reactive, unscientific, obscurantist Church stands and for which she is doing battle." (ibid, p. 52)

"Christianity is the most complete and perfect revelation of the nature of God and of God's will for man," wrote John Hallowell in 1950.   Orthodox Christianity was the unifying thesis of Hallowell's interpretation of modern scientific/ political philosophy:

"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insights we have into the nature of man and of the crisis in which we find ourselves.  That crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of a transcendent or spiritual reality and of his progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent conception of reality....Only through a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ, can modern man and his society find redemption from the tyranny of evil."  (ibid, p. 53)

The Christianity which Hallowell, Buckley, Hyde, Vivas and others defended was not the liberal or modernist evolutionary Christianity of the Social Gospel and Gnostic immanent Protestantism.   It was a supernatural Christianity grounded in what for many early conservatives was the deepest, most terrifying lesson of WW II: the lesson of evil, of original sin:

"We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin," asserted Hallowell.  To Richard Weaver, no concept gave deeper insight into the "enigma that is man" than original sin.  Evil was not just a "bad dream" an "accident of history," or "the creation of a few antisocial men."   Evil is a "subtle, pervasive, protean force," and original sin was a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing."   (ibid, 53)

Eliseo Vivas concurred.   Inside every man and woman he said, lay "brutality" and a "natural tendency" to define value in his own interests (moral relativism).  And this is precisely what powerful, amoral socialists, progressives, and others of the Social Darwinian mindset do, thereby liberating themselves and their malignant allies to maliciously fan the flames of covetousness/envy and hate in the hearts of our youth:

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

The social implications of original sin were obvious to early conservatives who believed that if the West and America were to have any chance of surviving rather than finally erupting in flames and blood, then there must be a revival of traditional Christianity along with the restoration to our vocabulary of a word discarded long ago, namely sin.

Peter Hitchens, author of "The Rage Against God" agrees.  The living, supernatural God of the Bible is the chief rival of global socialist utopians whose power has grown enormously due to the trivialization of sin by the submissive, irrelevant contemporary church and through an alliance with radical Muslims and the cult of unrestrained libido unleashed into the Western world by Freud, Reich, Kinsey and Marcuse,

".... promoted by the self-pitying anthems of rock music, and encouraged by the enormous power of 'progressive' education in which so many cultural revolutionaries work."  (p. 135)

Echoing the cautionary advice of early conservative intellectuals, Hitchens  warns that only the concepts of sin,

".....of conscience, of eternal life, and of divine justice under an unalterable law are the ultimate defense against the utopian's belief that ends justify means and that morality is relative.   These concepts are safeguards against the worship of human power." (p. 135)

Without these safeguards America and the West will be overcome by a tyranny of evil.
