Woody Allen's Frozen Soul

Rev. Robert Barron was chagrined, but not entirely surprised when he read Woody Allen’s recent ruminations on ultimate things. To state it bluntly, said Rev. Barron, Woody could not be any bleaker in regard to the issue of meaning in the universe. We live, he said,

"... in a godless and purposeless world. The earth came into existence through mere chance and one day it, along with every work of art and cultural accomplishment, will be incinerated. The universe as a whole will expand and cool until there is nothing left but the void. Every hundred years or so, he continued, a coterie of human beings will be “flushed away” and another will replace it until it is similarly eliminated. So why does he bother making films — roughly one every year? Well, he explained, in order to distract us from the awful truth about the meaninglessness of everything, we need diversions, and this is the service that artists provide."  (Woody Allen’s Bleak Vision, nationalreview.com, Aug. 12, 2014)

By his own willful choice, Woody Allen is a nihilist---a dehumanized evolutionary atheist.  The source of his nihilism is the belief that our Heavenly Father is dead and there is no Absolute Truth, that all truth is relative.    According to Eugene (Fr. Seraphim) Rose, nihilism is the basic philosophy of the 20th century:

"It has become, in our time, so widespread and pervasive, has entered so thoroughly and so deeply into the minds and hearts of all men living today, that there is no longer any 'front' on which it may be fought." The heart of this philosophy, he said, was "expressed most clearly by Nietzsche and by a character of Dostoyevsky in the phrase: 'God is dead, therefore man becomes God and everything is possible."  (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, oodegr.com)

Rev. Richard Wurmbrand (1909 –2001), a Romanian Christian minister of Jewish descent possesses keen insight into nihilism because it was his own philosophy at one time.  But after fourteen years of physical and mental torment in an atheist created hell on earth, this courageous pastor emerged with an unquenchable love for Jesus Christ and his fellow man.   According to Wurmbrand, nihilism freezes and hardens the souls of its' dehumanized believers:

"You freeze when you think of yourself as only a complicated product of chemical reactions....You cannot see stars (or your soul) through the microscope or microbes through the telescope.  Men who cannot think rightly come to the conclusion that God does not exist because they cannot find Him through the senses, which are functions of life in the realm of matter.  Senses are not the right means to see God." (The Answer to the Atheist's Handbook, Wurmbrand, p. 105)

The common denominators of Allen's particular form of nihilism as well as those of militant secularism and its' theological and New Age Eastern oriented counterparts are the denial of the supernatural Triune God, the fall (original sin), man as person (enfleshed soul) because created in the image of the One God in three Persons, Moral Law, immutable Truth, the Incarnation, Resurrection, heaven and hell.  Within the secular framework there is denial of angels and demons as well.  Other common denominators are the embrace of the idea of either pre-existing or spontaneously generated evolving matter and energy together with mankind collectively dehumanized and reduced to aspects of the evolving universe made valid by scientism---the instrument of man's will.

Whether matter and energy are held to be eternally existing or spontaneously generated (Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) matters not since the common point of departure for all worldviews grounded in matter and energy is metaphysical nihilism,

"... This position has been held by philosophers such as Parmenides, Buddha, Advaita Vedantins, and perhaps Kant (according to some interpretations of his transcendental idealism). Blob theory can also be considered very closely aligned with mereological nihilism (there are no parts and wholes). Obviously if metaphysical nihilism is correct, empirical reality is an illusion." (What is Metaphysical Nihilism? OpenTopia.com)  

Concerned creationists have long pointed out that evolutionary scientism is at the heart of the spiritual and moral crisis facing modern man.  A booklet titled The Surrender to Secularism (Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation, 1967) written by Most Rev. Cuthbert O'Gara, former bishop of Yuanling, China, provides a powerful testimony to this truth.  Rev. O'Gara relates the following:
 
"When the Communist troops over-ran my diocese they were followed in short order by the propaganda corps---the civilian branch of the Red Forces---an organization...more fanatical, then the People's Army of Liberation itself.  The entire population, city and countryside, was immediately organized into distinctive categories (and) forced to attend the seminar specified for his or her proper category and there (forced to submit) to the official Communist line.   Now what...was the first lesson given to the indoctrinees?  The first, the fundamental, lesson...was man's descent from the ape---Darwinism!   Darwinism negates God, the human soul, the after-life.  Into this vacuum Communism enters as the be-all and end-all of the intellectual slavery it has created.  In the Red prison in which I was held, the slogan, 'Bring your mind over to us and all your troubles will end,' was hammered into the minds of the prisoners with brutal and numbing monotony.  Nothing but a groveling holocaust of the human person can satiate the lust for dominance of Pekings's Red Regime."  ( Article 12: The Quintessential Evolutionist, waragainstbeing.com)  
 
All forms of the metaphysical nihilism dominating our modern societies, from the Darwinism force-fed to our children to militant forms of secularism, occult New Age evolutionary pantheism and their evolutionary theological counterparts are forms of metaphysical nihilism demanding a holocaust of the human person: 

"It matters little whether we are dealing with Communism, Socialism, Nazism, abortion, the whole secular culture of perversity and death, the exclusion of God from public education, the crisis within the Church, or a whole host of other individual and social agendas – all are intimately related, and have as a powerful causative factor, belief in Darwinian Evolution." (ibid)

Within the Western civilized world, including America, the idea that everything in the universe reduces to matter and energy is found for example, in the thinking of global NWO socialists,  America's progressive ruling class, the evolutionary 'Christianity' of Michael Dowd, the Hindu-pantheism of Teilhard de Chardin, the integral evolutionism of Ken Wilber, the dialectical materialism of Karl Marx, and the 20th century's murderous dictators, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot.

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

In one way or another, these dictatorial governments systematically dehumanized and murdered millions to create an imagined earthly Eden, said Riggs, and this is clearly irrational.  In this sense, leftist ideology is an atheist religion with the look of a religious inquisition. Klaus Fischer puts it this way:

“[T]otalitarianism represents the twentieth-century version of traditional religiosity; it is in many ways the secular equivalent of the religious life. Unless this crucial point is captured, the quintessential nature of totalitarianism will elude us.” (ibid)  

This "totalitarian religiosity" is grounded in metaphysical nihilism and the dehumanization and reduction of mankind to aspects of the evolving universe on a par with trees, slugs, weeds, and apes.  This evil religion continues today as a “scientific,” secular, politico-centric faith,

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

For individual evolutionists, metaphysical nihilism and dehumanization of 'others'  is liberating, at least during younger years when death is not even a blip on the radar.  This is  because for the uncreated, liberated autonomous 'self' who is the measure of all things and 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 debauched friends should not live in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves.  But the nihilism, egotism, lying, perverse license, and sadistic pleasure attained through psychological domination and manipulation of dehumanized 'dupes' and their children, all of which nihilists rejoice in during their younger years becomes an unbearable source of  despair, horror, night terrors, dread, and thoughts of murder and suicide with the advent of old age and the approach of death.

The Supernatural God, Heaven, Hell, Souls and Demons:  Do They Exist?

At issue is the existence of the supernatural God of Revelation, the Heavenly Creator of all that exists.   Does He exist and did He reveal Himself to men or not?    Evolutionists and their theological counterparts say no, all that exists is the natural dimension of matter and energy in continuous motion measured by time that may or may not involve the working of a nature god controlled by man. 

However, existence within the natural dimension of space and time is not the only form of existence.  Timeless is the supernatural realm (third heaven) of the eternally existing, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Holy God of Revelation, the sphere of Spirit, self-existence, eternity.

Furthermore, all people who have had out-of-body experiences by way of near-death, astral plane travels, shamanism, or by way of drugs for example, can testify to the existence of their own souls and of the timeless realm.  According to Francis Huxley and Jeremy Narby:

"Western observers began participating in shamanistic sessions involving hallucinogenic plants, (and) found, to their astonishment, that they could have experiences similar to those described by shamans."   'Life' magazine popularized shamanism in a 1957 story, "In Mexico, American banker Gordon Wasson ate psilocybin mushrooms in a session conducted by (a) shaman."   Wasson described to 'Life's' readers his experience of "flying out of his body."  Narby and Huxley report that "hundreds of thousands of people read Wasson's account, and many followed his example."  (Modern Shamanism: Spirit Contact & Spiritual Progress, James Herrick, p. 17 from "On Global Wizardry, edited by Peter Jones) 

When the soul comes out of its' body, as happened to the Satanist William Schnoebelen, it is immediately within the realm of timelessness and spirits in which there is no before and after, no cause and no effect.

William Schnoebelen was a great hardboiled sinner whose damnable transgressions  included Satanism and receiving the mark of Satan during an out of body experience.  His autobiography, Lucifer Dethroned, is a gripping and horrifying account of his descent into the darkest, most frightening side of the occult, magick, spell-casting, vampirism, astral travel and Satanism and his subsequent restoration through grace and the love of Jesus Christ. 

Bill was a demonically-empowered Druidic high priest, high-order Mason, ordained spiritist minister and Satanist who frequently "went out of his body" into the timeless realm for various reasons.  As he tells it, one night he was "yanked" out of his body and drawn up through the paths of the Tree of Life toward the zone of Binah or Saturn.  His terrifying journey took him to a vast, obsidian trapezoidal shaped temple called the Cathedral of Pain situated in the midst of swirling stars. The inside walls were clear glass,
 
"...holding back a transparent green fluid.  Floating within the fluid...were hundreds of naked (horribly mutilated) human bodies.  They were all dead, most with expressions of exquisite terror etched in a rictus on their frozen faces."  Then a pillar of light struck an "obsidian throne," a sacrificial altar, and out of the light "appeared a huge being...robed in white.."  Mighty wings swept his shoulders.  One moment the winged being was an incredibly handsome man, the next a "bull" and the next a "woman."  Chanting began in Latin: "Ave Satanas, Rege Satanas (Hail Satan, Satan Rules)"  Then the terrifying being reached out his left hand "and placed it on my forehead....I felt a claw tear into my brow (and) insert itself into my brain like a white-hot poker.."  Then a voice spoke: "Now you are mine forever."    (p. 157-159) 

Schnoebelen was forced to return to the Cathedral of Pain a few more times before turning to Jesus Christ for salvation.  One night he finally got down on his knees and confessed,

"...to the Lord that I was indeed a sinner---perhaps the chiefest of sinners (but) I repented (Luke 15:5) and confessed that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead so that I might have eternal life (Romans 10: 9-10).  I asked Jesus to save me from my sins (Romans 10: 13), and to be the absolute Lord of my life (Romans 12: 1-2)"    Jesus Christ forgave me and set me "free from unbelievable darkness and evil..."   Jesus Christ liberated my spiritually oppressed soul."(p. 315)

All people, including 'scientifically enlightened' evolutionary nihilists live in a mysterious world of which we see only darkly because we are imprisoned in the jail of our senses.  But as Schnoebelen, shamanists and practicing occultists such as Carl Jung know, there are on earth powerful, intelligent beings that move so fast we cannot not see them, who emit rays outside the spectrum of our vision and communicate among themselves on a wavelength beyond what man can hear and apprehend, thus they can observe us, inflate our most disordered passions and even influence our dreams and thoughts for good or bad without our knowledge. 

According to the highly celebrated Jung, Philemon, a winged, horned demon, supervised and inspired the writing of the "Seven Sermons to the Dead."  Jung described the occasion like this:

"The whole house was....crammed full of spirits.   They were packed deep right up to the door, and the air was so thick I could hardly breathe...Then it began to flow out of me, and in the course of three evenings the thing (Septem Sermones ad Mortuos) was written." (Jung relates how his soul departed into the timeless realm)...the mystical land of the dead (and) soon after the.....'dead' appeared to me and the result was the Septem Sermones."   (To Hell and Back, Maurice S. Rawlings, M.D., p.143)

Unseen spirits can, and do, influence the minds of evolutionists who then trumpet the nihilistic ideas dropped into their minds as their own and then do the work of devils by leading astray millions of people with their damnable soul-destroying teachings.

Evolutionary seculars and their theological and occult New Age counterparts commit grievous sins and live as if they will never die. But the God of Revelation, heaven, hell, angels and demons exist and even now, without their knowledge, they are being prepared to receive the mark of Satan on their foreheads.   Before it's too late, let them learn from the despairing words of other nihilistic adversaries of Jesus Christ:

"I am suffering the pangs of the damned."  Tallyrand (ibid, Wurmbrand, p. 158

"Give me laudanum that I may not think of eternity."  Mirabeau

"I am abandoned by God and man.  I shall go to hell.  Oh Christ, oh Jesus Christ!" oltaire

"What blood, what murders, what evil counsels have I followed.  I am lost, I see it well." Charles IX, King of France

"I would give worlds, if I had them, if the Age of Reason (an anti-Christian book) had never been published.  Oh, Lord, help me. Christ, help me.  Stay with me. It is hell to be left alone." Thomas Paine

"...I had a feeling that life was ebbing from me.  I felt powerful sensations of dread (then suddenly everything) turned a glowing red.   I saw twisted faces grimacing as they stared down at me (I tried to defend myself but) could no longer shut out the frightful truth: beyond the faces dominating this fiery world were faces of the damned.  I had a feeling of despair....the sensation of horror was so great it choked me.  Obviously I was in Hell itself (and then suddenly) the black silhouette of a human figure began to draw near...a woman...with lipless mouth and in her eyes an expression that sent icy shudders down my back.  She stretched out her arms...and pulled me by an irresistible force (into) a world filled with....sounds of lamentation....I asked the figure...who she was.  A voice answered: "I am death."  (German actor Curt Jurgens, To Hell and Back, pp. 76-77)

Nihilists are lost and spiritually blind--- to the existence of the timeless supernatural realm of our Heavenly Father, to the existence of devils all around them and to their own frozen souls. 

Their foolish hearts are darkened (Rom. 1:21) and their thoughts evil (Gn. 6:5).  They are ignorant, guilty, and corrupt.   In their folly they boast of great scientific knowledge and wisdom--- but it is grounded in nihilism (nothingness).  They have exchanged God's Revelation for scientism and His Truth for a lie (Rom. 1:25), and their minds, being blinded by the god of this world are wholly blind to the saving Light of Christ that shines into the hearts of the faithful. (John 8:12):

"This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil."  "For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.…(John 3:19-20)

From his own experience, Eugene Rose believed that modern man cannot come to Christ fully until he is first aware of how far he and his society have fallen away from Him, that is, until he has first faced the Nihilism in himself:

 "The Nihilism of our age exists in all," he wrote, " and those who do not, with the aid of God, choose to combat it in the name of the fullness of Being of the living God, are swallowed up in it already. We have been brought to the edge of the abyss of nothingness and, whether we recognize its nature or not, we will, through affinity for the ever-present nothingness within us, be engulfed in it beyond all hope of redemption-unless we cling in full and certain faith (which doubting, does not doubt) to Christ, without Whom we are truly nothing."  (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, oodegr.com)

For all who repent of their sins, combat their nihilism with the aid of God and unite with the faithful who persevere in the Way of Christ, death is merely a doorway to eternal physical life in a physical Paradise---the earth and heavens renewed and remade in unimaginably wondrous ways.   But for the stubborn, dehumanized nihilist, "blinded by the god of this age"  the approach of old age and death are accompanied by afflictions of the mind---despair, depression, night terrors, inexplicable feelings of dread and horror---because beyond the grave lies only remorse.

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

"(The lie) is the word, act, sign of cunning or silence which makes use of wiles to deceive (all who seek) truth....the attitude of the liar, who full of subtlety, audacity and at times cruel cynicism, misleads his neighbor into the quick sands of falsity.  The use of the lie reveals the liar as a person of evil intentions.  He who tells lies as a way of getting ahead lacks a love of truth (he or she is) a self-centered dissimulator, cunningly manipulating his fellowmen for his own evil purposes."   (The Roots of Violence, Rev. Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., p.29)
 
 Nihilism is the satanically inverted philosophy of violence, lies and license of America’s president, his cabinet, and the amoral progressive ruling class of which they are members.  It is also the philosophy of the Marquis de Sade, Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx and the Sophist Callicles in Plato’s ‘Georgias’ who declares:
 

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

In other words, with a consensus of lies backed by force and the threat of violence, the Revelation of God, the Christian Church, virtue, true truth, marriage, gender, your children, your humanity, your wealth, your home, your business, and your Constitutional rights become whatever agents of violence and the mobs in back of them want them to be or not to be from one moment to the next.
 

What nihilism has already led to in England, said Nate Steuer of 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 a 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.

Occult Evolutionary Biology: the Magic Way of Becoming God

When asked why the layman should be interested  ”in so esoteric a subject as evolutionary biology,” one of the leading evolutionists of our day, Professor S.J. Gould responded:

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

Gould candidly admits that evolutionary biology is an esoteric story of man while the prominent defender of Darwinism, the evolutionary biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky (1900-1975) spoke of God as creating through evolution, which he describes evolution as a light,

“…. which illuminates all facts, a trajectory which all lines of thought must follow.”  (Dobzhansky, T., Ayala, F.J., Stebbins, G.L. and Valentine, J.W., Evolution, W.H. Freeman and Co., San Francisco, 1977)

Western esotericism, or occultism, is the search for and study of an unseen reality.  It is secret knowledge of the hidden.   This hidden or arcane knowledge is meant only for certain people such as Gould, Dobzhansky and like-minded evolutionary esotericists.

Occult practices include but are not limited to Hermetic magic, alchemy, astrology, divination, and spiritualism, or contact with spirits.  Interpretation of occultism and its concepts can be found in philosophies, occult sciences (evolutionary biology) and nature religions such as  ancient Egyptian Hermeticism, Gnosticism, Theosophy, Wicca, Satanism, Thelema and neo-paganism.

A general definition is offered by Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke:

"Occultism has its basis in a religious way of thinking, the roots of which stretch back into antiquity and which may be described as the Western esoteric tradition. Its principal ingredients have been identified as Gnosticism, the Hermetic treatises on alchemy and magic, Neo-Platonism, and the Kabbalah, all originating in the eastern Mediterranean area during the first few centuries AD." (The Occult Roots of Nazism, Good-Rick-Clarke, p. 17)

In this light, evolutionary biology is hidden knowledge (gnosis) based in a philosophy of naturalism..  Its genesis account holds that billions of years ago chemicals generated by a Big Bang which a God may or may not have generated, combined and transcended themselves after a hundred or a thousand identical operations thereby allowing the miraculous transmutation of chemicals into life.   Once life miraculously emerged, natural processes, which God may or may not play a role in,  were set in motion that after passage of vast ages supposedly eventuated in the arrival of man:

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

Like its' Mystery Religion counterpart, evolutionary biology has both an exoteric or outer meaning for mass consumption and a hidden, or occult meaning for higher initiates.

Lurking beneath the idea that life will eventually arise from the mixing of lifeless chemicals (matter) is a vision arising from the age-old technology of alchemy while behind Dobzhansky’s phrase, the “light of evolution,” lies its magical meaning: "As above, so below" the Hermetic principle bespeaking an unseen universal life force emanating or evolving in waves from the hidden dimension of true reality above (i.e., Brahman, Quantum Void, Dobzhansky's God) with which everything in the universe and the physical dimension here below are in continuity.

Within the Egyptian Mysteries, this hidden life force was known as serpent power.  Serpent power was associated with the elemental forces (spirits) in play before creation of the universe, thus Herme's world famous magic formula is represented by the hidden great chain of being symbolized by the Oroboros.  As a powerful occult symbol, the Ouroboros means the seething power, universal life force, creative and/or evolutionary impulse or energy of the serpent figuratively depicted as either a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.

Hermes formula demonstrates the monistic oneness of the god-man's divine intellect with the  hidden reality above.  In teaching the meaning of the formula to his son Tat he said:

The intellect, O Tat, is drawn from the very substance of God.  In men, this intellect is God, and so some men are gods and their humanity is near to divinity…If man makes right use of (God’s gifts), he differs in no way from the immortals.”  (God and the Knowledge of Reality, Thomas Molnar, p. 78)

The serpent powered chain of being with its' multiple dimensions and life-giving energy systems is a hidden reality that not only powers the universe but reaches into and miraculously bestows life upon lifeless chemicals.  Then after billions of years of evolutionary process it reaches into the psyche, stirring imagination, bringing intellectual and moral perfection (deification) and psychic powers and even awakening pre-human memories of when scientifically enlightened modern man, evolution's most advanced product, was a soulless hominid.

Dr. Molnar writes that illustrations of Hermetic science abound all around the world.  For example, the “Asclepius,” a famous Gnostic text of indefinite origin states,

Man is a magnum miraculum…as though himself God….familiar with the race of demons, of the same origin as he; he despises that part of his nature which is only human, for he has put his hope in the divinity of the other part.” (ibid, p. 78)

It was Renaissance scholars, theologians, and mystics who rediscovered and intensely studied ancient esoteric texts, and then like Pico della Mirandola, argued that occult Cabala and hermetic science is the best proof of the divinity of Christ.    In other words, said Molnar,

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

Occult science and manipulation by the magician of arcane symbols, numerals, formulas, and knowledge pertaining to the hidden dimension of true reality are inseparably linked in esoteric doctrines.  Therefore, in order for divinity to be proven by way of occult science, the modern Hermetic magician, whether secular or Christian, must manipulate into irrelevance the supernatural dimension and the literal and historic meaning of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo since 'matter' must either pre-exist or have come into being from a Cosmic Egg (Big Bang).  In either scenario the action of the magician results in,

....an absolute although hidden concordance between the lower and the higher worlds, the key of which lends to the magus incalculable powers.” (Salvation through Technology: Creating A Posthuman New Breed, Dr. Martin Erdmann, herescopeblogspot.com, April 23, 2011)

One of the primary goals of the Hermetic magician said Molnar, is separation of the soul from the body (purification), and second, the spiritualization of all matter.     Darwin’s formula supposedly attains the first goal:

“….the doctrine of evolution has swept the world, not on the strength of its scientific merits, but precisely in its capacity as a Gnostic myth. It affirms, in effect, that living things created themselves, which is in essence a metaphysical claim….Thus…evolutionism is a metaphysical doctrine decked out in scientific garb….it is a scientistic myth (that) implicitly denies the transcendent origin of being; for indeed, only after the living creature has been speculatively reduced to an aggregate of particles does Darwinist transformism become conceivable.”  ( Dr. Wolfgang Smith in From Old Gnosticism to New Age I, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal Vol. 28:4-29:1, 2005, pp. 30-31)

The magic way of intellectual and moral transcendence (deification) was made possible by the inventers of theories of spiritual/cosmic evolution.   Molnar writes that travelers on this second highway were characteristically recruited from theology.  Some of these inventers are,

Bergson, Laberthonniere, Le Roy, Blondel, Bloch, Teilhard de Chardin, Heidegger, Bultmann, Karl Rahner, and numerous others…”  (God and the Knowledge of Reality, p. 133)

With Teilhard’s mystical pantheist idea, after billions of years of evolution, matter finally transcended itself resulting in its' transmutation into Christ consciousness.   Now that matter is spiritualized and divine,

The great affair for modern mankind is to break its way out by forcing some threshold of greater consciousness.” Christians should not fear the natural processes of evolution because it brings them inexorably to God and self-deification, “Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is…a magnificent means of (being) at one with God…”    (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 590)

Occult Worldview Essentials

The basic foundations of occult worldviews consistently teach the following elements:

1. Monism and evolution: Though there are different forms of monism the common denominator of them all is the idea that the universe and everything in it consists of or is reducible to one substance in process of evolution. (The Coming Darkness, John Ankerberg & John Weldon)

Mystical forms of monism characteristically accept some form of pantheism, as exemplified by for example, Teilhard de Chardin's Hindu pantheist New Religion and Leonard Sweet's Quantum Spirituality based in Teilhard's conceptions. Advaita Hinduism teaches the one ultimate reality is Nirguna Brahman (an impersonal God-force or Void) while Teilhard's system reduces everything to Omega---his version of Brahman.

It is the hidden monistic premise of esoteric evolutionary biology and mystical occult monism that makes them fundamentally anti-Christian and anti-person since man is not created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons but is rather an impersonal aspect of the one substance.

In Dr. Gary North's excellent evaluation of monism, "Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism," he writes that the Word of God teaches a permanent,

"....unbridgeable gap between the ultimate being of God and the derivative being of creatures. There is a Creator-creature distinction (meaning that) men do not partake of God's being...they are not of the same substance as God. There is no more fundamental doctrine than this one. Significantly, in every form of occultism this principle is denied....Satan's old temptation to man hinges on his denial and man's denial of the Creator-creature distinction."  (ibid, pp. 59-61)

2. God is an impersonal hidden reality, an energy field, abyss or void as opposed to God as personal and loving. (John 3:16)

3. Man's true identity is God since he is one with (shares) God's being as opposed to man created in God's image but not sharing the being of God. (Gen. 1:27)

4. Since there is only one impersonal substance, then evil is in harmony with the amoral god-substance or force. In contrast, Scripture teaches that evil operates in opposition to God's holy nature. (1 Peter 1:14, 15; 3:12)

5. Illumination or enlightenment (salvation) is achieved through self-realization (awareness of personal divinity) by various occult spiritist practices such as séances, spells, automatic writing, meditation, hypnosis, Ouija boards, shamanic drumming, Kundalini yoga, channeling, visualization, and mind-altering drugs. Occult salvation is the antithesis of salvation based on the atonement (Christ's suffering and death for sin) and received as a free gift by grace through faith in God and Christ. (John 3:16; 5:24; 6:47; 17:3)

6. Psychic or spiritual powers result from initiation into occult practices (see above) that open the mind to contact with and even possession by spirits.

In contrast, Scripture teaches that spiritual gifts are distinct from and work in opposition to occult psychic powers. They are given by God to His people for service to others. ( 1 Cor. 12:4-11; 14:3)

7. Eternal cyclic incarnation into different bodies over thousands or millions of years or reabsorption (annihilation and/or personal extinction) into the impersonal substance. In opposition, Scripture teaches personal physical resurrection and immortality in either heaven or hell. (Matthew 25:46)

8. A Pelagian view of humanity. Human nature is not fallen but good, thus the possibility for perfection is always present.  Given this outlook, the self-transcendence of humanity becomes a sociological imperative:

At the stage we have reached in scientific research our minds and intelligence will have to surpass themselves and rise to transcendent heights; the human, all-too human, will no longer suffice.” (Mircea Eliade, The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and  Structures of Alchemy,  Dr. Erdmann)

In monism, whether esoteric evolutionary biology or mystical occult pantheist permutations, the traditional Western Christian ways of thinking and perceiving are rejected because "all is one."  This means there is no ultimate distinction between man and God, Jesus Christ and Satan, male and female, human and nonhuman, true and false, good and evil, moral and immoral, holy and unholy, or right and wrong because "true reality" is beyond the illusory categories associated with the natural (physical) world. Therefore, murder, genocide, rape, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, lying, cheating and theft cannot be considered evil if evil itself is in harmony with the hidden true reality.

Equally, while nothing can really be considered evil, so nothing can really be considered good. This means that honesty, integrity, courage, fidelity, and commitment cannot be considered good and worthy for the same reason evil cannot be considered evil.

Finally, there is no such thing as personhood (genuine personality) because true reality (the one substance) is not personal.  In other words, because the One God in three Persons who made all men in His spiritual image, thereby endowing all men with genuine personality(personhood) is not true reality, then ideas of personhood and unalienable rights are delusional.  In fact, since personality is supposedly a hindrance to occult spiritual enlightenment, it must be destroyed.

Humanist rationalism, Hermetic magic, esoteric Cabala, alchemy, Buddhism, reincarnation and karma, naturalism  and other forms of occultism were two sides of the same revival of Renaissance paganism and mystical pantheism underlying the intellectual edifice of modern natural science and evolutionary biology. Thus, as C.S. Lewis argued in his great masterpiece, That Hideous Strength, occultism and humanistic rationalism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies that are united against the supernatural God in three Persons, Christianity and Christian civilization.

Lewis underscores this point in “The Abolition of Man:”

“You will even find people who write about the sixteenth century as if Magic were a medieval survival and Science the new thing that came in to sweep it away. Those who have studied the period know better. There was very little magic in the Middle Ages: the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are the high noon of magic. The serious magical endeavour and the serious scientific endeavour are twins: one was sickly and died, the other strong and throve. But they were twins. They were born of the same impulse. I allow that some (certainly not all) of the early scientists were actuated by a pure love of knowledge. But if we consider the temper of that age as a whole we can discern the impulse of which I speak.”

In conclusion, evolutionary biology symbolizes the deep religious desires of certain men for autonomous self-creation, transcendence and self-redemption, thus are incarnations,

“ …of the ancient, deeply religious endeavor “to become like God” – infinitely wise, omnipotent, autonomous, and immortal.” (Dr. Erdmann)

The Occult Worldview of Satan

The idea that man can become God was first whispered in Eve’s ear by Satan, the father of the occult worldview, that is, the evolving universe of matter and energy.  In condensed form it began when the Devil lied to mankind's first parents, saying "You will surely not die," "Your eyes will be opened," and "You will be like God," "knowing good and evil." (Gen. 3:4,5)

Respectively, these lies suggest that man will live forever even if he rebels against the commands of the Triune God; that  by his own innate powers he can discover secret enlightenment revelatory of both his true identity as God and the knowledge of the universe of evolving matter and psychic energies; that by self-will and rebellion against God he can, by way of magic and help from spirits, become godlike and gain forbidden psychic powers; and finally, that a condition of self-control and moral purity is counterproductive since only personal experiences and final transcendence of good and evil will make him like God. 

From the pre-flood world to the post-flood world of Ham and Nimrod on through to our own time, the basic foundations of the occult worldview consistently teach the following elements:

1. Monism and evolution:  Though there are different forms of monism the common denominator of them all is the idea that the universe and everything in it consists of or is reducible to one substance in process of evolution.  In direct contrast to the Biblical teaching that though men are made in the spiritual image of God they do not partake of God's being (Gen. 1:27), with Darwinism for instance, God, mind, and spirit are reducible to one substance: matter in the form of the neural complexity of the brain, meaning that divine consciousness (God reduced to psychic energy) operates within the neural complexity of man's brain.  So God is within the brain of man:

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

Mystical forms of monism characteristically accept some form of pantheism, exemplified by for example, Teilhard de Chardin'sAdvaita Hindu pantheist New Religion and Leonard Sweet's Quantum Spirituality based in Teilhard's conceptions.  Advaita (monistic) Hinduism teaches the one ultimate reality of which everything consists is Nirguna Brahman (an impersonal God-force or Void) while Teilhard's system reduces everything to Omega---his version of Brahman.

It is the monistic premise of both Darwinism and mystical occult monism that makes them fundamentally anti-Christian.  In Dr. Gary North's excellent evaluation of monism, "Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism," North writes that,

 "...there is a permanent, unbridgeable gap between the ultimate being of God and the derivative being of creatures.  There is a Creator-creature distinction (meaning that) men do not partake of God's being...they are not of the same substance as God.  There is no more fundamental doctrine than this one.  Significantly, in every form of occultism this principle is denied....Satan's old temptation to man hinges on his denial and man's denial of the Creator-creature distinction..."  (pp. 59-61)

2. God is ultimately impersonaland one with nature as opposed to God as wholly 'other' (supernatural), personal and loving (John 3:16)

3. Man's true identity is God since he is one with (shares) God's being as opposed to man created in God's spiritual image though not sharing the being of God. (Gen. 1:27)

4. Since there is only one substance, then evil is in harmony with the amoral god-substance or force.  In contrast, Scripture teaches that evil operates in opposition to God's holy nature (1 Peter 1:14, 15; 3:12)

5. Gnostic illumination or enlightenment (salvation) is achieved through self-realization (awareness of personal divinity) by various occult spiritist practices, i.e., séances, spells, automatic writing, meditation, hypnosis, Ouija boards, shamanic drumming, Kundalini yoga, visualization, mind-altering drugs, transformational festivals, trance music and centering.  

Occult salvation is the antithesis of salvation based on the atonement (Christ's suffering and death for sin) and received as a free gift by grace through faith in God and Christ (John 3:16; 5:24; 6:47; 17:3)

6. Psychic or spiritual powers resulting from initiation into occult spiritist practices (see above) that open the mind, or third eye according to occult lore, to contact with and even possession by aggressively hostile spirits and are often used for personal power.   In contrast, Scripture teaches that spiritual gifts are distinct from and work in opposition to occult psychic powers.  They are given by God to His people for service to others ( 1 Cor. 12:4-11; 14:3)

7. Eternal cyclic incarnation into different bodies over thousands or millions of years or reabsorption (annihilation and/or personal extinction) into the impersonal substance.   In opposition, Scripture teaches personal immortality in either eternal heaven or hell (Matthew 25:46)

In monism, whether Darwinian or mystical occult versions, the traditional Western Judeo-Christian ways of thinking and perceiving are rejected because "all is one,"  This means there is no ultimate distinction between Jesus Christ and Satan, male and female, true and false, good and evil, moral and immoral, bent and straight, holy and unholy, or right and wrong because "true reality" (the one substance) is beyond the illusory categories associated with the natural (physical) world. In other words, murder, genocide, rape, lesbianism, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, lying, cheating and theft cannot be considered evil if evil itself is in harmony with the divine one substance.

While nothing can really be considered evil, nor can anything really be considered good.  So love, honesty, integrity, courage, fidelity, and commitment cannot be considered good and worthy for the same reason evil cannot be considered evil.

Finally, there is no such thing as personhood (genuine personality)  because true reality (the one substance) is not personal.  In other words, because the One God in three Persons who made all men in His spiritual image, thereby endowing all men with genuine personality (personhood) is an illusion, then so are ideas of personhood and unalienable rights from the living, personal God.  In fact, since personality is supposedly a hindrance to occult spiritual enlightenment, it must be destroyed. 

The occult worldview of Satan has been with us from the pre-flood days of Noah.  Today its' most highly developed forms are Wicca and Advaita Hinduism and derivatives such as the occult New Age spirituality overspreading the West and America and penetrating into the whole body of the Christian church.

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)

Evidence of America's Madness

The recently published essay, "Falling Stars, Damnable Heresy, and the Spirit of Evolution" has elicited numerous outraged reactions from 'deeply offended' evolutionary theists.

One deeply offended writer sought to assure me that basic evolution is a "simple scientific theory built on two confirmed facts: 1) descent with modifications and 2) natural selection."  And this, said the aggrieved writer, is "natural-philosophy (aka "science") which begins with inputs from our senses."

The offended writer is an ideologue who along with America's ruling class hold the reins of power and influence within every branch of government, Hollywood, the propaganda shills aka media, the scientific establishment , education establishment, and increasingly within seminaries and churches.   All of them are ideologues. 

An ideologue is a person who swallows-whole twisted, distorted ideas and systems-thinking that are inherently illogical and self-refuting.   Consider the following: ideas, theories, philosophy, concepts, presuppositions, assumptions and opinions are not of the sensory realm but of the unseen or spirit realm; they cannot be seen, touched, weighed or heard because they are of spirit (mind).  But according to the writer, "natural philosophy aka science begins with inputs from our senses."

The agitated writer contradicted himself by using his mind (spirit) to posit an entirely insane notion that denies “mind.” 

Ideologues always suffer from cognitive dissonance, which means they are double-minded individuals who hold in their minds two distinctly antithetical ideas, one true, one false. In this case, the true idea says, “you have a mind,” while the false one denies “mind” in service to pride and madness.

It has long been said that the eyes (senses) are the door to the soul/spirit (mind). Any truly great artist will tell you that eyes (senses) and inspiration (mind) work instantaneously as a harmonious unit, not one thing first (senses) followed finally by the other, mind. There is never an instant where eyes (senses) work alone and it is madness to say they do.  Yet because America's double-minded ideologues hold most every position of power, madness has become America's new 'norm.'

Falling Stars, Damnable Heresy, and the Spirit of Evolution

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Falling Stars and Damnable Heresy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Pouring more contempt on them he asked,

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

 Concerning Matthew 19:5:

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

 And concerning Cor. 15:21-22:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rise of the Unified Global Church of One 'God'.......Satan

 "And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."  John 3:19

Since the Renaissance, powerfully influential, satanically overshadowed occult secret societies existing at the highest levels of Church, government and society have been both the intelligentsia and the real powers behind what has been variously called the Progressive Underground, the Anti-Establishment, and the Anti-Tradition Counter Culture.  The aim of the societies is twofold:  first, the total destruction of the Old Order based on supernatural Christianity with emphasis on the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, Original Sin, Jesus Christ God Incarnate, immutable truth, moral absolutes and all tradition arising therefrom, and second, the ushering in of an occult New Age--- a socialistic kingdom of “God” (pantheist New World Order) here on earth.   (The Occult Underground: The Dawn of the New Age" and "The Occult Establishment," James Webb)

Today occult societies at the highest levels of global power and influence operate through a vast organizational network--a global occult pantheist New Age Movement (Age of Aquarius) linked to over 10,000 organizations here in America alone. 

The New Age movement received its start in 1875 with the founding of the Luciferian Theosophical Society by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.   

In his book, “Earth’s Earliest Ages” (1876), the English theologian G.H. Pember, writes that Blavatsky was chosen by the Brotherhood (fallen angels) to carry out a mission.  They initiated and instructed her for seven years and then dismissed her to the outer world.  As instructed, she traveled to America and organized the Theosophical Society in New York with two specific stated goals.   First, the formation of the nucleus of a Universal Brotherhood.   Second, the destruction of the Revealed Word of God by way of a transformation to unity with the world system process.  This devilish process would be carried out by “spiritually illumined” change-agent theologians and priests (2 John 1:7) who would transform it completely:

"The coming struggle will emerge within the churches themselves; it will be precipitated by the enlightened elements...the fight will then spread to thinking men and women everywhere who — in a protesting revolt — have denied orthodox churchianity and theology." (Spirit Master Djwhal Khul speaking through Alice Bailey, Externalization of the Hierarchy, pp. 453-454)

Bailey explains that spiritually illumined elements (specially selected theologians and priests) will be overshadowed and then possessed by Masters in a three stage process:

". . . prepared disciples and highly evolved men and women, will be found who will be doing the work along the lines intended, one who will be occupying places of prominence which will make them available for the reaching of the many; their bodies will also be sufficiently pure to permit of the overshadowing. It will only be possible in the case of those who have been consecrated since childhood [as I was], who have been servers all their lives or who, in previous lives . . . [the concept of spiritual evolution and reincarnation, key concepts of the New Religion.] First “An impression upon the physical brain of the man or women, of thoughts, plans for work, ideals . . . which emanating from the Avatar [Hindu: An incarnation of a deity in physical form] will yet be unrecognized by him (This is a very important aspect of overshadowing) . . . . This is literally a form of higher telepathy . . . . Second. The overshadowing of the chela (Hindu for disciple) during his work (such as lecturing, writing, or teaching) and his illumination for service. He will be conscious of this . . . and will seek more and more to be available for use, rendering himself up in utter selflessness to the inspiration of His Lord. Third. The conscious co-operation of the chela is necessitated in the third method of overshadowing. In this case, he will… surrender himself and step out of his physical body, handing it over for the use of the Great Lord or one of His Masters . . . he renders up his body, and stands aside for a specific length of time." (p. 756-757, Scientific Analysis of the Writings of Alice A. Bailey and their Applications,” Robert Herrmann Ph.D.)

In other words, 'chosen' disciples will at first come under the influence of demons, then become infested, then severely infested and some  totally possessed.

Eighteen years after Blavatsky died in London in 1891, the Brotherhood selected Alice Bailey (1880-1949) for further instruction.   Beginning in the year 1919 she began receiving “messages” from “Tibetan Master” Djwhal Khul. As stated by Bailey, the preparatory period began with Blavatsky and lasted from 1875 to 1890.   The intermediate teachings were received and recorded by Bailey from 1919 to 1949.  According to Khul, other teachings would emerge on a continuous basis after 1975 and be given on a world wide scale to selected individuals.

Among core teachings common to occult New Age are praise for Lucifer (the seething power  and/or angel of evolution),  biological and spiritual evolution, reincarnation, karma, pantheism/panentheism, man is god, the earthly kingdom of “God” (Lucifer) together with the concept of the Masters and other such synonyms: Masters of Wisdom, the Unknown Chiefs, the Secret Chiefs, Brothers, Council of Nine, the Ancient Ennead, and Space Brothers.   In her various books Bailey lists other members of the Hierarchy of Masters: Master Jupiter, Master Koot Humi, Master Rakoczi, Master Serapis, Master P., Master Hilarion (the Master of science), and Master Jesus.

Variations of these concepts and teachings are also common to Christian Science, Mormonism, Spiritism, Baha’i, Unitarian Universalism, Scientology, Eastern Religions, the Emergent Church, the New Apostolic Reformation and Masonry (Illuminism), the successor of the Mysteries:

"Illuminism---the Luciferian religion---teaches that man can become God, that he can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself (and) once you have evolved into a god, you can make up your own rules (and) morality." (New World Order, William T. Still, p. 27)

"Spiritual evolution is a common belief within Fabian socialism, the Emergent Church, the communitarian church growth movement, and the New Age movement. It will play a major role in bringing many of the world’s religions together as one." (Man as God: What Much of Evangelicalism  and the World's Religions have in Common, Brannon Howse, worldview weekend, July 29, 2013)

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is one of the fastest growing movements within evangelicalism today.  It emerged from the Pentecostal and Charismatic movement and teaches that certain individuals have become new spiritual beings, super apostles:

 "This NAR teaching is consistent with the New Age Movement or cosmic humanism, declaring that man needs to tap into his “Christ consciousness.” Cosmic humanism, (also known as the New Age Movement or pagan spirituality) is a major foundation of the NAR." (ibid, Howse)

In his penetrating analysis of the New Apostolic Apostolic movement, Fr. Seraphim Rose notes that the spiritist manifestations (i.e., impartation, holy laughter, drunk in the spirit, roaring, barking, hissing, slain in the spirit) experienced in NAR churches are found in the occult New Age movement. The spirit that invaded the Charismatic movement during the 'Toronto Blessing' is not the Holy Spirit, said Rose, but the kundalini spirit (serpent power), the same spirit that ancient Egyptians, Hindus, yoga practitioners, and New Agers are familiar with.

One way that serpent power is imparted is by laying on of hands, or Shakti-pat. The demon-possessed Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajineesh was called the "divine drunkard" by his disciples, and according to Tal Brook, author of "Riders of the Cosmic Circuit," by his millions of worshippers in India, America, and Europe and throughout the world. Rajineesh encouraged his devotees to come and drink from him, meaning, receive his touch:

"His spiritual 'wine' was often passed on with a single touch to the head (Shakti-pat), at which his followers would collapse in ecstatic laughter. Another famous guru, Swami Muktananda, would hold meetings at which thousands of his followers from around the world came to receive his touch. They experienced uncontrollable laughing, roaring, barking, hissing, crying, shaking, as well as falling unconscious." (Rose, p. 217)

These demon-possessed gurus were imparting spirit to their adoring worshippers which they had received during initiation rituals and which they attributed to spirit-possession.

According to veteran researcher Brooks Alexander, Satan's disciples have successfully assimilated occult Eastern teachings and techniques into our church and our culture. With remarkable speed and ease, Eastern and occult ideas and spiritist techniques for contacting spirits such as trance music, brain-altering drugs, meditation and yoga are being propagated to undiscerning Westerners and Americans, within and without the church, on a mass scale:

"...they are filtered through the pervasive secularism of our culture. In this way they are demystified without changing their essential content. The basic components of an Eastern/occult world view are recast in forms of expression that are naturalistic, scientific, and humanistic...Occult philosophy is being secularized and psychologized with increasing refinement....Their underlying themes run through contemporary science, economics, politics, art, psychology, and religion." (The Coming Darkness, p. 55)

NAR's Super Apostles (2 Cor. 11:13) also channel this unholy ‘spirit’ thus are “enlightened elements” who claim they have been given authority by the Spirit of “God” to build a kingdom of “God” on earth---a unified and/or pluralistic Global Church:

They believe they are restored apostles called and ordained by God to be the government for the emerging “New Order” church.  In order to maintain this governance they stress strict obedience and submission to them in all matters.  They claim to hear directly from God, and many claim that Jesus visits them in person…these so-called restored apostles believe they are called to lay the foundation and government for the new (earthly) Kingdom (one world church).  Their goal is complete and utter control of the church and subjugation of its current governance to them….This is a highly organized group with a global agenda (it is) well thought out, well strategized, and will be implemented with military precision.  The grid is in place---our future is planned.” (A Strong Delusion---the New Apostolic Reformation, thereformedtraveler.com)

Rick Joyner, one of the most visible and popular change-agent leaders in the NAR claims that faithful Christians who resist the “change” to “unity” or "oneness" process are under demonic influence.  In a further demonstration of his satanically twisted and inverted  reasoning processes Joyner said,

Some pastors and leaders who continue to resist this tide of unity will be removed from their place.  Some will become so hardened they will become opposers and resist God to the end.”  (Religious Trojan Horse, Brannon Howse, p. 146)

Joyner calls for a Great Christian Civil War to drive out authentic Christians (John 15:19) because they are too “rigid in doctrinal emphasis.” (ibid, p. 147)

Church growth guru and NAR leader C. Peter Wagner agrees.  Wagner, yet another “enlightened element,” claims that NAR is “changing the shape of Protestant Christianity around the world” and he and his fellow ‘over-shadowed’ travelers expect opposition from Bible-believing Christians:

We are well into the early adoption phase of the New Apostolic Reformation, when we can expect fairly strong objections from traditionalists who are threatened by change.” (ibid, p. 144)

An ancient Chaldean occult doctrine, evolutionary transformism (change processes) is the strange fire produced by astrological elemental spirits in fascinated minds within and without the Christian Church.  In the impeccably researched “Scientific Analysis of the Writings of Alice A. Bailey and their Applications,”  Robert A. Herrmann, Ph.D. has traced the evolutionary science so very prevalent today together with the concept of the Masters back to 1750 and the Spanish-French occultist, Martine’s de Pasqually (1715?-1779).  The term Secret Chiefs however, was introduced by Baron Hund (1772-1776) for his Strikt Observanz Masonic System (Luciferian religion). 

Herrmann writes that the idea that man is god is grounded in evolutionary transformism, the seething energy of Lucifer that fuels and drives change processes,

“….where an individual spiritually evolves into higher and more meaningful forms until one actually becomes totally a spirit being on various evolutionary levels.  Further, Pasqually apparently introduced the human biological concept prior to Darwin’s expanding it to other biological entities.”  (ibid, Herrmann)

Similarly, it will be by way of an evolutionary “change” process that the chosen one will be transformed into the Antichrist. 

The brilliant Russian philosopher, theologian, and visionary, Vladimir Soloviev (1850-1900) foresaw the stunning events we are witnessing today — the wholesale rejection of the God of Revelation tied to the fall of Westerners into idolatry and paganism influenced and directed by a demonic outpouring effecting a transformation of consciousness issuing into a unified religion of Lucifer and the appearance of the Antichrist.

In the "A Short Tale of the Antichrist"  Soloviev writes that prior to his transformation, the proud super- man is outwardly just, but within full of pride.  He is morally reprehensible:

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

As the super-mans' change-process and/or initiation (spiritual fall) progresses, instead of the former cold rational respect for Jesus Christ:

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

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

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

The Christian Church: Undergoing an Evolutionary Change into Apostasy Process

New Age leader David Spangler identifies evolution as the power of the angel Lucifer, thus when Djwhal Khul revealed that the fallen angel calling itself Master Jesus is assuming control of the Christian Church, he inadvertently affirmed Spangler's claim.  In other words, Satan is the spirit of the evolutionary “change” into  apostasy process that allows Master Jesus to take control of the Christian Church, and this is why Djwhal Khul, speaking through Bailey, spoke of the day when,

"Christianity will be in a state of chaotic division and upheavals. When this takes place . . ., the Master Jesus will take certain initial steps towards reassuming control of His Church… "(ibid, p. 573).

Khul appears to be describing our age, an age marked by confusion, collapsing foundations and a Christian Church fractured, divided against itself and increasingly in defiance of the Holy Trinity--- a change process collapsing into nihilistic moral relativism, accommodation to the world system, heresy, open apostasy and demonic subjection.  This 'change' into apostasy process is backed by a vast and growing network of powerful transnational New Age agencies espousing syncretic neo-Gnostic interfaith/inter-spirituality and kingdom of “God” on earth conceptions.  (1 Tim. 4:1) 

The Global Occult Elite

The global ‘elite’ community consists of prime ministers, secretaries of treasury, secretaries of state, philanthropists and global business leaders whose NWO vision calls for the convergence, on a global basis, of religion, multinational corporations, foundations and the political and sociological instruments that would form a one-world government designed to bring about a New World Order. ("Hope of the Wicked: the Master Plan to Rule the World,"  Ted Flynn)

In the painstakingly researched "False Dawn: the United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion" Lee Penn calls our attention to the United Religions Initiative. The URI is the leading edge of the rising global religion of Lucifer. The URI is to a significant extent animated by New Age Luciferian-spirituality. Penn notes that evolution is absolutely central to New Age theology which is a syncretistic stew of Liberal (pantheist) Christianity, Luciferian Theosophy and Masonry, Spiritism, the Ancient Mysteries, Eastern Mysticism, Wicca, Goddess worship, and adulation of Lucifer.

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

New Age spirituality relies heavily on the revelations of the Masters channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Penn notes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes: adulation of Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom; man as god; death is not real; extreme population control including abortion, eugenics and euthanasia; hatred of faithful Christians and Jews; forecasting a pending 'selection' of mankind in which the occult progressives enter the New Age and reactionaries face extinction:

"For the New Age Apostles of "progressive" Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution." (ibid, p. 7)

 When a critical mass of humanity have succumbed to satanic subjection, infestation and possession, the Hierarchy of Masters will bring to an end,

“…the long silence which has persisted since Atlantean days," and "renew an ancient sharing of secrets." Thus "in the immediate future....Masters will walk openly among men...openly guiding and directing the affairs of humanity." (Djwhal Khul speaking through Alice Bailey, False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 262)

While denying Jesus Christ God incarnate,  the true source of Light and life because the Creator Who spoke all things into existence ex nihilo and made man in His spiritual image,  powers and principalities are succeeding with the methods of false light among the many travelers of the broad way toward the building of Lucifer's kingdom of “God” here on earth…a unified Global Church of the One God: Lucifer. ( http://one-faith-of-god.org/about.asp )

The Church-Growth Network, Change-Agent Pastors and the Churches of Prometheanism

In "What the Hell? Vatican caught on damnation of non-believers" Jonathan Owen reports that with a new Pope in place, the Catholic Church is keen to portray itself as open-minded, tolerant, modern and relevant.   But as Owen argues,  a recent suggestion by Pope Francis that atheists could also be "redeemed" by God has led the church to return to medieval rhetoric with an official Vatican spokesman forced to clarify that non-believers are indeed destined for hell.   (thereporter.com.au, 29th May 2013)

In a thinly veiled rebuke of the new Pope, Vatican spokesman Father Thomas Rosica made it abundantly clear that merely being "good" is not enough to avoid going to hell.  On the issue of "salvation" he remarked:

"They cannot be saved who, knowing the Church as founded by Christ and necessary for salvation, would refuse to enter her or remain in her." (ibid)

On his Friendly Atheist blog, Hemant Mehta wrote:

"We all knew that sense of one-ness and actions-speak-louder-than-prayers wasn't going to last very long." "Atheists, according to Christians, are going to hell unless we accept Christ's divinity. We already knew that. It was still an unusual and welcome gesture from the Pope to recognise that everyone, regardless of beliefs, can do good and 'be saved' - at least it was a step up from what we're used to hearing." (ibid)

Owen's arrogant charge that the Vatican has been "caught" red-handed is entirely reasonable given its widespread acceptance of  both Darwin's  evolutionary materialism (all that exists is matter and energy in motion)  and Teilhard de Chardin's  spiritualized Hindu-pantheist conception (matter is divine spirit and evolution now lives and is conscious of itself).  

 "Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of evil. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn away from it and pass on."   Proverbs 4:14

Ideas have consequences, and these neo-pagan conceptions have disastrous ones, starting with God's Truth.    God's Truth is no longer  immutable.   It is no longer what His will approves, what His holiness entails, and what His mind knows:

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

Ultimate Truth as our objective reality has been cast down by evolutionary conceptions and supplanted by man's rationalizations and irrational feelings passed off as truth.   (Philippians 2:21)  This being the case, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo is no longer true, man is no longer the three part spiritual image bearer of the living triune God, there is no transcendent dimension outside of the space/time dimension, there was no fall,  man is not a sinner in desperate need of our Savior, and the idea of eternal  damnation is a baseless, hateful notion based in unscientific medieval rhetoric

At the root of the modernist and/or postmodernist, pluralistic, culturally relevant, anti-tradition Church, be it Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox or Protestant, is defiance of God, pride unlimited, a yearning for the stones (earthly bread) of this world rather than heavenly manna, and a desire for power with the assumption of divine attributes matched by a driving determination to utterly transform the Christian Church and manipulate and shape mankind's fate.

 Modernism emerged out of the Enlightenment, a religious, philosophical, intellectual and cultural revolution that elevated the omniscient mind of man--his will to power, reason and omnipotent criticism over the mind of  the Triune God and His Revealed Word.  

Puffed up with pride Modernists sought scientific and rationalistic explanations for everything and lauded the superiority of the empirical method as the only reliable way to determine what man can know, thus they foolishly  dismissed the idea of  immutable truth, moral absolutes, the supernatural dimension, miracles, creeds, doctrines and even man's soul.   All of this they stupidly derided as blind faith and superstition and relegated to the dustbin of history.    According to John MacArthur:

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

Overconfident rationalism, human conceit, arrogance, idolatrous men usurping the throne of God---all of this characterized the Modern era which finally issued in organized hatred of God---a universal totalitarian atheism that unleashed catastrophic destruction and rivers of human blood during the 20th century.   Depending on the researcher, death totals range from 120,000,000 to 350,000,000 men, women, and children.

 At some unmarked point during the last twenty years America and the West moved out of the Modern Age into the Postmodern Age and with Pontius Pilate, postmodern agnostics, atheists, pagans, occult New Agers and their faithless "Christian" counterparts derisively ask, "What is truth?" (John 18:37-38) and claim that we can't be certain about anything, including God's self-revelation through the scriptures.

Postmodern Pontius Pilate, Peter Drucker, played a key role in the development of the contemporary 'new way of doing church' formulated by Bill Hybels, Rick Warren and countless other contemporary church growth gurus that is slavishly cloned by thousands upon thousands of infatuated pastors here and around the world.  

In "Peter Drucker's Mega-Church Legacy" Herescope (Discernment Research Group) reports:

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

 "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness.... Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!"   Isaiah 5:20-21

The Drucker-style consumer and business church model grows by opening the front door of the Church to pagans, atheists, and agnostics, and to make them feel comfortable it de-emphasizes immutable truth, moral absolutes, Original Sin, hell, confession, repentance, true spiritual growth, apologetics, reverence and traditional hymns and proposes instead an irreverent, laid-back horizontal approach tailored for the carnal  appetites and felt-needs of the "unchurched and dechurched" rather than for the spiritually-mature.  

This way of reasoning is in keeping with the postmodern mentality that believes that as Christian theism is no longer a matter of Divine Revelation it can be deconstructed and changed so as to reflect human experience, emotions, desires, and appetites.

The driving ambition to deconstruct and deceptively change God's Word means that church growth gurus and like-minded pastors are actually revolutionary change-agents---transformational leaders, the new Prometheans who hold in contempt statements of faith, appeals to transcendent Authority, definition, rules, processes and doctrinal boundaries and reject any concept of certain, objective, and universal knowledge as well as all of the spiritually mature believers who profess them. 

 "...all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned..."     2 Timothy 3:1-14

Because the most spiritually mature and discerning are resistant to change they are disparaged, marginalized and ridiculed as 'traditionalists' and demonized as divisive, narrow-minded, confrontational troublemakers and eventually forced to leave.  Bob Buford's widely read church growth management manual, Leading Congregational Change (LCC), promoted by Buford's Leadership Network, offers a popular strategy for dealing with odious faithful traditionalists heartily endorsed by  Rick Warren who tells church-growth advocates that this is the book they should read before changing anything.

Buford defines the spiritually mature thinkers and discerners in every Church as "pockets of resistance" that must be dealt with by change-agent pastors and team members:

"Address Specific Pockets of Resistance. Resistance is the 'opposite reaction' to change.... [It] can come in many different forms—confrontational or passive-aggressive, from known troublemakers or loyal supporters, as a result of a specific change or of an incorrect perception...." (Leading Congregational Change, pp. 90-91, from "Spirit-Led or Purpose Driven?" pt. 4, Berit Kjos)

 "My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent." Proverbs 1:10

The successful change operation depends on persuading the less spiritually mature majority to submit to a "new way" of doing church.  In this new model, the congregation of individual minds is reduced to an emotions-fueled collective unconscious--a belly sated by the bread of this world--- guided by a cheerleader pastor who is himself the servant of  a "Christianized" version of George Orwell's totalitarian Big Brother.   This "new" Big Brother works through a vast interlocking network with tentacles that stretch for example, from the much promoted National Back to Church Sunday event to the Billion Soul Network, Global Church, Leadership Network, World Leaders Group, Global Leadership Conference, Bill Hybels global empire (the Willow Creek Association) to Rick Warren's personal empire and his  monumentally ambitious U.N. approved P.E.A.C.E Plan to New World Order elitist Tony Blair and his syncretic interfaith initiative:

"Tony Blair has just embarked upon a project to further the cause of global governance, and he is intending to use religion as the vehicle. Called the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, its purpose is to create momentum for achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals.   His role is not unlike that of John Foster Dulles nearly a century ago, who worked to create 'an international ethos' [through the Church] which would be essential as any foundation for any lasting international political structure.' Commenting on this, historian Dr. Martin Erdmann wrote, 'The first responsibility of the Church would thus be to inform the general public about international affairs.' He explained how 'the churches would need to unite their forces to transform the present sovereignty system into a world order system wherever possible.'" (Herescope quoting from Building the Kingdom of God on Earth, 2005, p. 113 ibid Kjos)

While the National Back to Church Sunday campaign holds out the promise of something wonderful, in back of this campaign is the Billion Soul Network. (Back to Church Sunday Engages with Billion Soul Network, backtochurch.com)

In demonstration of its' syncretic spirit, consumer and business mentality and globalist goals, in Feb 2012 the Billion Soul Network issued an email containing ‘A Special Message From Dr. Ken Blanchard.’   Blanchard, whose spiritual leanings are toward occult New Age spirituality and spiritism, was promoting the 2012 World Leaders Conference presented by World Leaders Group.  Featured speakers included Tony Blair, Cokie Roberts, Ken Blanchard, Tony Dungy, Bill Hybels, Henry Cloud, Patrick Lencioni, Craig Groschel, James Blanchard, Erwin McManus, Mark Floyd, and Tim Sanders.  (Watching:  A “Billion Souls” and the World Leaders Conference, standupfortruth.com, 2012/03)

Despite its' syncretic spirit, man-centered religion and other obvious bad aspects, the Billion Soul Network describes itself as a God-birthed movement, though of course it doesn't tell us what "God" supposedly birthed its movement.   Its' aim is missional, (a favorite word of NAR and syncretic global church growth advocates) thus its aim is  to ‘help plant five million new churches for a billion soul harvest’ and ‘finish the Great Commission by AD 2100."   In the spirit of syncretism, the Billion Soul Network asserts,

We can achieve more together than we ever could alone by synergizing our efforts to bring back the King.’ (billion.tv)

In this light we can understand why  church-growth guru Bill Hybels  polls unbelievers and tailors Sunday morning service to their expressed needs. What unbelievers want is a "new" church, an anti-traditional culturally relevant place where they can feel unthreatened by "hymns" and harsh words such as "sin" and "hell."   What they want are the stones of this world transformed into bread, thus Hybels makes sure they are entertained in a creative, humorous, culturally relevant atmosphere:

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

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

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

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

 "...do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.... Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good."  Romans 12:2, 9

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

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

In the final analysis, the trendy, culturally relevant, tolerant "new" churches over and across the entire denominational spectrum throughout America and around the world are being changed from places of life into places of death.  They are becoming trendy, culturally relevant mausoleums of death. (Isaiah 66:3-4)

Why Evolutionary Materialism leads to the Unreality of Your Existence

American Christian author Dr. Frank Turek notes that Cambridge-trained Ph.D. Stephen Meyer's New York Times best-seller, "Darwin's Doubt," is creating a major scientific controversy. Because Darwinists absolutely hate it, Meyer’s well-reasoned argument that an intelligent designer is the best explanation for the evidence at hand elicits irrational accusations that Meyers is anti-scientific and guilty of endangering sexual freedom everywhere. (Darwin's Doubt, Turek, Townhall.com, July 09, 2013)

Meyer writes, 

Neo-Darwinism and the theory of intelligent design are not two different kinds of inquiry, as some critics have asserted. They are two different answers—formulated using a similar logic and method of reasoning—to the same question: ‘What caused biological forms and the appearance of design in the history of life?’” (ibid)

The real issue here is not "anti-scientific" intelligent design or for that matter, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo ("special creation" as evolutionary materialists call it) versus "scientifically enlightened reason and science" but about creation account vs. anti-creation account (Darwinian materialism). 

The reason Darwinists on one hand, and intelligent design and Genesis account proponents on the other, arrive at radically different answers is because Darwinists are neo-pagan materialists and the other two are not.

While intelligent design proponents are open to intelligent causes (just like crime scene investigators are), Genesis account creationists hold that our Creator, the living, personal Triune God the Divine Source of life who exists outside of the space/time dimension is Jesus Christ, the angel who spoke with Moses at Sinai.

Foremost of His miracles is creation out of nothing – six days of creation rather than the billions of years of evolutionary process out of already existing or spontaneously generated matter:

The first moment of time is the moment of God’s creative act and of creation’s simultaneous coming to be.” (Philosopher and New Testament scholar William Lane Craig quoted in “If God created the universe, then who created God?’ by Jonathan Sarfati, Creation Ministries International)

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

As all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the Triune God it logically follows that each male and female is a trinity of being — of soul, spirit, and body:

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

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 spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent Triune God (Gen. 1:27).  This unique view of man 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 gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," and this is,

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

Neo-Pagan, Anti-Human God-Haters

Darwinian materialists are anti-Triune God:

"The irony is devastating. The main purpose of Darwinism was to drive every last trace of an incredible God from biology. But the theory replaces God with an even more incredible deity — omnipotent chance...." (T. Rosazak, Unfinished Animal, pp. 101-102, 1975)

They hate the very thought of Him as their Father and seek escape to a nowhere land, an impersonal, collective communal unconscious where man as God’s spiritual image-bearer, immutable truth, order, moral law, sexual ethics, authority, hell, heaven, angels, demons, meaning and purpose do not exist. For these reasons and others, such as Original Sin and the two created sexes, they fiercely reject intelligent design but viciously hate creation ex nihilo and  choose rather to embrace evolutionary and materialist conceptions. The truth of this can be seen in the following quotes:

The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics.  He is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not seize political power and govern in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves.  The voluntary…reasons for holding doctrines of materialism….may be predominantly erotic, as they were in the case of Lamettrie…..or predominantly political as they were in the case of Karl Marx.” (Aldous Huxley, “Ends and Means,” p. 315, from Libido Dominandi: Sexual Liberation and Political Control, E. Michael Jones, p. 27)

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

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

Metaphysical Nihilism: Everything and Nothing

Metaphysical nihilism (all that exists is matter and energy) is the metaphysics of both physical materialism and nonphysical materialist conceptions. 

What chiefly separates these two is whether matter is physical or nonphysical.  If physical, then the Triune God, heaven, hell, soul/spirit, angels, and demons do not exist.   But if nonphysical, then for example, spirits, ghosts, divine sparks, Transcended Masters, intra-cosmic deities, Orobouros, astral planes, divine impersonal mind and Christ consciousness exist but the material world is an illusion.

Brooks Alexander, the founder of The Spiritual Counterfeits Project (SCP), an evangelical ministry and think-tank in Berkeley, California identifies both physical and nonphysical materialist conceptions as the two sides of pagan monism. Because they are from the same root they tend to cross-pollinate and mingle,

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

In other words, for many years secular-human physicalists have been quietly crossing over into spiritual or cosmic conceptions of matter and embracing for example, Zen Buddhism and Teilhards idea, which leapfrogs off of Darwin’s theory.

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

You can be as God

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

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

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

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

Nihilism: You are of Nothing

“Behold, you are of nothing, and your work of that which hath no being: he that hath chosen you is an abomination.” Isaiah 41:24

Though evolutionary materialists congratulate themselves for being scientifically enlightened, cutting edge ‘elite’ free thinkers, the truth is otherwise, meaning that materialists, whether of the secular physical or occult spiritual school are miserable self-deceived nihilists for whom there is neither source for "self" (conscious life, psyche, individual mind) nor for meaning and purpose in life.  They are “of nothing” and the unreality of their own existence is the devastating price they have paid the devil, the father of death and nihilism, for “saving” them from the living God.   

The misery inducing "salvation" of "nonself" is not something new but something ancient.  It began with Buddha who craved God-like power to deconstruct and reinterpret the soul. Taking power not only requires the murder of God but the teaching of lies.

Jesus to Buddha,  

"....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."    (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 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 energies working on and through matter then it logically follows that there is no source for life, conscious life (soul, spirit and will), the two sexes, human dignity and worth, or for unalienable Constitutional rights beginning with the right to life, liberty, and property.  Without the Triune God meaning drains into meaninglessness and man is reduced to less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Marxist Communists attempted to scientifically re-engineer human beings after the fashion of metaphysical nihilism.

“Thought crime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for awhile....but sooner or later they were bound to get you." George Orwell, 1984

After seizing control of Russia, Marxist materialists utilized propaganda of the lie, re-education with major emphasis on Darwinism, revision of history, and other confusion-inducing, mind-and-thought-control techniques in connection with brain-altering drugs, electro-shock therapy, terror and other brutal measures to,

"...liquidate all expressions of individual identity in favor of an impersonal collective, communal consciousness." (The Book that Made Your World, Vishal Mangalwadi, p. 74)

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

Nihilism is spiritual, moral, intellectual and cultural suicide.  It is the devil’s inferno here on earth, the void of everything and nothing in which death is life, evil is good, lie is truth, up is down, male is female, female is male, rolling in filth is good clean fun, bad is good but evil better and the father of nihilism is god.  

Choose Eternal Blessing and not Cursing

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

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

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


The Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Living Word become Flesh, Jesus Christ the Physician, came to heal the spiritually sick and dying, to save their immortal souls. Just as we are on the verge of going down into the pit, ready to depart to the unseen world, if we will repent and turn back to Him then by His providence and grace our Lord will revive our souls and deliver us from those accursed horrors of conscience and ghastly terrors of mind which by reason of our sin are as hell searing itself into and possessing our very minds. (Psalm 116:3)

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

A.W. Tozer: Spirit of Babylon Controls "New" Church

Over and across the entire denominational spectrum of the Christian church, the conception of God no longer reflects His own self-revelation in Scripture and many who call themselves Christians have little idea what they believe or why—or even what Christians are meant to be doing: 

"For many Christians, God simply meets a previously unmet need: a father, a best mate, a provider, or a gentle, loving sugar daddy! While many non-Christians see God as nasty and vindictive, or a cosmic party-pooper, many Christians hold to equally erroneous conceptions of God that bear little resemblance to the biblical revelation." (The theological corruption of the Evangelical Church, by Andrew S Kulikovsky, creation.com)

Some years ago, the highly respected theologian A.W. Tozer  rebuked the church on this very point:

Always the most revealing thing about the Church is her idea of God, just as her most significant message is what she says about Him or leaves unsaid, for her silence is often more eloquent than her speech. She can never escape the self-disclosure of her witness concerning God.” (ibid)

Tozer argued that a true conception of God is fundamental,

 “...not only to systematic theology but to practical Christian living as well. It is to worship what the foundation is to the temple; where it is inadequate or out of plumb the whole structure must sooner or later collapse.” Indeed, “there is scarcely an error in doctrine or a failure in applying Christian ethics that cannot be traced finally to imperfect and ignoble thoughts about God.”

The most ignoble and imperfect idea about God is posited by evolutionary theologians.   Because modern Christians are very comfortable with natural science and the idea that 13.72 billion years ago there was a bang and evolution by natural selection they uncritically embrace the teachings of theistic evolutionists such as John Dickson and progressive creationists such as Hugh Ross who deny, 

"... that the Genesis account of creation is a historical record of God creating the universe and everything in it by divine fiat in six days. Instead, they posit that God’s only activity in bringing about the present world has been maintenance, not special miraculous acts of creation in history. In essence, theistic evolution borders on deism since the god of the theistic evolutionist is distant and impersonal."  (Kulikovsky)

According to Kulikovsky, theistic evolution comprises the following basic beliefs:

(1) the first human couple (if there even was one) shared a common ancestor (pre-Adamites) with the apes;

(2) the first human couple were highly evolved hominids who were imparted with God’s image

(3) death, decay, and suffering are an integral part of the world God created, and therefore, the teaching that physical death is a direct consequence and penalty of Adam’s sin is denied

(4) the penalty for sin is ‘spiritual death’

Very clearly, theistic evolution and progressive creation not only cast doubt upon God’s omniscience, omnipotence, efficiency, and goodness but make Him responsible for suffering, cruelty and death. As Nobel Prize winner and atheist Jacques Monod (1910–1976) put it:

“Selection is the blindest, and most cruel way of evolving new species, and more and more complex and refined organisms … the more cruel because it is a process of elimination, of destruction. The struggle for life and the elimination of the weakest is a horrible process, against which our whole modern ethic revolts. An ideal society is a non-selective society, it is one where the weak are protected; which is exactly the reverse of the so-called natural law. I am surprised that a Christian would defend the idea that this is the process which God more or less set up in order to have evolution.” (Kulikovsky)

Rather than being an evil and a curse arising as a result of the Fall as Scripture teaches (Genesis 2:17; Romans 5:12), said Kulikovsky, human physical death is credited as being an integral part of God’s plan to ‘evolve’ His creation:

" Thus, we end up with a distant, impersonal God who is not all-knowing, not all-powerful, not very efficient, and not all that good! A god that endorses the exploitation and subjugation of the weak by the strong and employs indiscriminate pain, suffering, and death to bring about the world they desire can hardly be called just, loving, or compassionate. This is, ultimately, a libel on God and His character."

 Moreover, faithful Christians who uphold the Genesis account creation ex nihilo are marginalized, derided and ridiculed.  For example, during a televised discussion with theoretical physicist and self-described atheist Lawrence Krauss, Dickson advised him on how to deal with the odious faithful:  

“...what you should be doing, Lawrence (is) hand them over to us. People like the Centre for Public Christianity, where I work, who are trying to educate not only the general public but also the Christian public on Biblical scholarship and scientific scholarship. … I just mean we could be the friend—we could be the friend to the new atheism and have the effect you want. I think all you are doing is firming up the opposition.” (Kulikovsky)

The "New" Church

Dr. Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary warns that the Protestant Evangelical Church is splitting apart.  Faithful traditionalists said Mohler, are exiting the autonomous 'new' church which defines itself over and against Traditionalism, or authentic Christianity.   Whereas traditionalists affirm the essentials of the faith and reject the dangerous idea of  accommodating the church to evolution, science, and culture, the "new" church either soft-pedals or rejects the essentials and is willing to adopt teachings and cultural practices to reach pagans, atheists and agnostics:

" This means  whatever is influencing the culture can more easily come into the church because  we are adopting its ways. Previously what is spiritually harmful has been coming  through the backdoor instead of the front. Now it’s knocking on the front door,  and many are answering it by opening it and inviting it in. This is done because  of a lack of judgment on leader’s part. While everyone is making a fuss about the  Da Vinci code released to persuade the public on Christianity we have not  recognized what is taking place in our own living room – the church." (New Age Pathways in the church, letusreason.org)

Caused by a devastating loss of biblical and doctrinal conviction, this dangerous trend is increasingly evident in growing numbers of churches:

"....more and more Christians are willing to reject or compromise the uniqueness of Christ and His atonement, citing the apparent 'sincerity' of those who worship other gods, or no god at all."  Due to loss of theological nerve,  many "American Christians seem increasingly reluctant to believe that their unsaved neighbors will go to hell.... the essence of this belief is universalism, the belief that all persons will be saved...in spite of what (God) reveals in Holy Scripture. These persons believe in a God of their own devising, and not the God of the Bible....Their stance betrays their lack of conviction and even compassion.  Their conscience is uncluttered by concern for the lost." (The Disappearance of God, R. Albert Mohler Jr., pp. 184-186)

In "The New Spirituality: Dismantling and Reconstructing Reality," Dr. Peter Jones, professor of New Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary in Escondido, California, writes that a 'new' spirituality is overtaking the "new" church that is not new but is rather,

" ....the reappearance of the massive system of ancient world paganism and, as such, represents the greatest threat to the church since the Greco-Roman pagan empire. The situation is urgent."   (modernreformation.org)

Jones sees that because "new" church theology already has much in common with 'new' pagan spirituality the Church Militant is becoming the postmodern "new" church Imitant,

"...adopting "a new Christian worldview" that, devoid of theological biblical clarity, apes the pagan culture and concludes that "the body of Christ is queer, is man, is woman, is straight."  The "new Christian" employs spiritual techniques borrowed from pagan mysticism and imitates the self-justifying moralism of liberal social action." (ibid, Peter Jones)

Rather than the contemporary "new" church, over in the U.K. there is something called "fresh expressions," a form of church for our increasingly pagan culture,

"A fresh expression is a form of church for our changing culture, established primarily for the benefit of people who are not yet members of any church."  (freshexpressions.org.uk)

Like its American counterpart, the growth oriented fresh expressions 'new' church describes itself as missional, meaning it believes it can save souls by serving and/or meeting the needs of pagans and other unbelievers by bringing their culture and pagan spirituality into the church.   According to Anglican priest Steve Hollingshurst,  since pagans prefer to embrace the evolving divine feminine (the oneness of male/female energies) it is important that the church celebrate the divine feminine as well. (onearthasinheaven.blogspot.co.uk )

More than fifty years ago  A.W. Tozer saw that Christian theism was no longer God-centered but man-centered.  The "new" man-centered church has adopted a "new" Decalogue and a "new" set of Beatitudes:

A new Decalogue has been adopted by the neo-Christians of our day, the first word of which reads “Thou shalt not disagree”; and a new set of Beatitudes too, which begins “Blessed are they that tolerate everything, for they shall not be made accountable for anything.” It is now the accepted thing to talk over religious differences in public with the understanding that no one will try to convert another or point out errors in his belief. The purpose of these talks is not to confront truth, but to discover how the followers of other religions think and thus benefit from their views as we hope they will from ours.”   (The Dwelling Place of God)

 The stance of the 'new' church betrays a lack of conviction; a shallow faith resulting in a  church so intertwined with evolutionary science and the surrounding culture that the two are essentially one and the same, thereby bringing it to the brink of apostasy:

"The Bible has no compromise whatsoever with the world....The Bible...sends us out into the world, but never to compromise with the world, and never to walk in the way of the world...." (The Dangers of a Shallow Faith, Tozer, p. 15)

Tozer argues that the "new" church has been overtaken and held hostage by spiritually impotent theologians who have opened the door to the spirit of Babylon which now controls the "new" church and has created a situation where it worships on altars of science, evolution, marketing and publicity and is dominated by cults:

1. The Cult of Imitation: Christians imitate what is seen outside of the Church, " a characteristic of immaturity" resulting in our secular pagan rock 'n roll dominated media and blue-jeans obsessed 'fashion' industry setting the standards for the Church:

  "There was a time," said Tozer, "when the Church set the standard for music (and) the world imitated the Church.  Men like Beethoven, Mozart and Handel set the whole world singing, and the focus of their music was the church." Now the Church imitates the world's rock music, "We offer this 'swine' on the altar of Jehovah.  What blasphemy.  We have so much more to offer God (but now we import) the culture around us (and this) is the sad reality of today's Christian." (pp. 28-29)

2. The Cult of Entertainment: Today's church cannot survive without a heavy dose of entertainment.  It is a church of shallow, feel-good theology punctuated by jokes, plays, and other adolescent speech and  behavior:

"What this generation of Christians needs is not religious entertainment to satisfy carnal appetites (but) biblically based literature that challenges and stirs the soul to deeper appreciation of God and Christ and the whole plan of salvation.  It is true that what we feed is what grows.  If we feed the carnal nature and its appetite, that will be the overpowering aspect of our life.  If we feed the spiritual, our appetite for the things of God will grow." (pp. 18, 30-31)

3. The Cult of Celebrity: Today celebrity church growth gurus mesmerize pastors with their latest innovative church growth schemes while celebrity 'feel-good' preachers' dazzle and delight carnal Christians with theologically empty messages as rock-star worship leaders enflame passions, deafen ears, benumb minds and set bodies in motion:

"We swoon over celebrity.  Whatever they say, we accept as important....even if it goes contrary to plain biblical teaching.  St. Ignatius said, 'Apart from Him, let nothing dazzle you." But we allow "everything but  'Him' to dazzle us these days.  We have become rather bored with God and the truths of Scripture." (p. 31)

Where in the past, Christians entered into the presence of God with an overwhelming sense of reverence and great thoughts stimulated them to the highest passions their minds and feelings could stand, today's 'new' Christians are irreverent, over-stimulated fleshy creatures addicted to diversion, technology and,

 "....all of the activities and pleasures of the world.  Whatever is stimulating to the average person out in the world is soon integrated into the program of the local church.  Find any pleasure out in the world and you will eventually see it in the evangelical church." (p. 35)

 The Curse of Worldliness:

"What harmony is there between Christ and Belial....between the temple of God and idols?" (2 Cor. 6:15-16) or between "the lord's table and the table of demons?" (1 Cor. 1021)

Like its' "new" mystical evangelical counterpart, the New Apostolic Reformation that seeks to grow the church and save souls by accommodating the faith to the felt-needs of our seeker-sensitive paganized culture, ancient Gnosticism similarly  attempted to incorporate the seeker-sensitive spirituality of the Greeks into Christianity.    In his book,  "The Gnostic Empire Strikes Back," Dr. Peter Jones, writes that the resulting perversion, 'Christian Gnosticism,' is a form of mystical Christian spirituality blended together with paganism. (p.6)

Speaking of the worldly "new" church, Tozer said he hears Jesus saying,

"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" (Matt. 23:37)

Moreover, the person of discernment who sees the worldliness of the "new" church,

"...is written off as being somewhat fanatical. But the day is coming when the house will be left desolate and there will not be a man of God left among them."  (p. 14)

These are the days of testing and shaking that will become more pronounced, thus Tozer warns  "new" Christians to "wake up," to take heed, for if you are settling back,

"... snuggling into your...chair and resting in your faith in John 3:16 and the fact that you have accepted Jesus Christ, you had better watch yourself.  Take heed, lest you...be found wanting. (2 Tim. 3:5-7) Take heed of your own heart, lest when all is said and done, you have become tied in with the world." (p. 15)

When Evil is Good and Good is Evil: The Worldview of the Marquis de Sade

In striking down Section 3 of DOMA, Justice Kennedy accuses men and women who support traditional marriage of harboring an "animus" or hatred of  homosexuals---sexually confused males and females who perceive themselves as two-in-ones, that is, androgynes.  

 Scalia's dissent suggests that the majority's arrogance betrays its own "animus," toward men and women of faith in the living Creator:  

"In the majority's judgment, any resistance to its holding is beyond the pale of reasoned disagreement. To question its high-handed invalidation of a presumptively valid statute is to act (the majority is sure) with the purpose to 'disparage,' 'injure,' 'degrade,' 'demean,' and 'humiliate' our fellow human beings, our fellow citizens, who are homosexual....All that, simply for supporting an Act that did no more than codify an aspect of marriage that had been unquestioned in our society for most of its existence -- indeed, had been unquestioned in virtually all societies for virtually all of human history. It is one thing for a society to elect change; it is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race."

This issue is about far more than just marriage rights.  It is really about the disintegration of man’s inner person (his soul) and the demolition of the worth and dignity befitting the spiritual image bearer of the Triune God.  This insidious process  began during the Enlightenment when Deists and fellow thinkers elevated 'reason,' or the corrupted intellect of man over the Trinity and Scripture and inferences from Scripture:

"Rationalists of various kinds in the 3rd and 4th centuries tried to minimize the mystery of the Trinity by reducing the persons to appearances or by making God’s essence plural. The church rightly rejected these attempts as heresies."  (God’s Eternally And Only Begotten Son And His Adopted Sons, R. Scott Clark, The Heidelblog,  August 28, 2014)

When Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species was published on November 24, 1859, all 1,250 copies sold out on the day of publication. God-hating Westerners and Americans alike had long been waiting for a theory with so-called 'scientific' prestige to render the Bible and the God of Revelation obsolete, thus they immediately jumped on the bandwagon of Darwinism. George Bernard Shaw described the relief of men at being rid of the Triune God and declared the world jumped at Darwin.  (Is Evolution Proved?, Dewar and Shelton, p. 4, cited by R.J. Rushdoony, The Necessity for Creationism)

With great haste, many compromising churchmen immediately scrambled aboard the Darwinian bandwagon followed by a long line of theological pied pipers right into our own time. For such people the appeal to compromise is irresistible.  Why not be fashionably "scientific," or "scientifically" respectable rather than faithful?  If the Genesis account of creation is such an embarrassment, why not accommodate the Bible to evolution? Why defend unscientific creation ex nihilo and risk being considered ignorant and backward by the world's 'inner circle' despite St. James warning,

"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all" (James 2:10).

Similarly, anyone who denies the authority of Scripture at one point has denied it at all points.  Rushdoony comments:

" If we assert that we can set aside the six-day creation doctrine, we have asserted our supremacy over Scripture. Our mind and our convenience now have a higher authority than the Bible, so that we have denied its authority totally and asserted our authority instead. If we claim the right at any point to set aside Scripture, we have established ourselves as the higher authority at every point. Clearly, therefore, the question of authority is at stake in Genesis 7: God or man? Whose word is authoritative and final?"

Working in unison, God-haters and compromising theologians have replaced the personal Creator with evolutionary scientism, thus man is no longer a living soul created in the spiritual image of God, nor male or female, but rather a sexless aggregate of matter in motion while the powers and abilities of his mind (spirit) are nothing more than energies acting on grey matter, that is, chemical interactions and the firing of synapses. In short, man is nothing but an evolved animal or bio-machine, a conscious product of energy acting on matter, a process called evolution.

The disintegration of man’s dignity as a rational creature of God is not the result of true science, as  evolution worshippers claim, but rather the product of a depraved conscience that justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of freedom. It is hostility and outright hatred of God and His image-bearers disguised behind linguistic sophistry.

With the Triune God who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo in six days out of the picture, then so too are the fall, sin, heaven, hell, angels, demons, immutable truth, universal moral absolutes, the two created sexes (male and female) 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 depraved-- is now possible.

Long before Nietzsche announced that with the death of the Christian God an inversion of the West's biblically-based moral foundations would be the result, the thoroughly evil Marquis de Sade, a murderer whose name is synonymous with sadism, had already arrived at that conclusion.   Thus he brazenly defended his bestiality, sodomy, sadism, and murder as moral, and redefined both God and Biblical morality as truly evil

Building off of this foundation, he denied any need for limitations on the appetites of animalistic men. Whatever they saw and desired was absolutely permissible. Consistent with his logic was the repudiation of the idea of crime, which de Sade regarded as an imposition on animalistic man’s freedom.   According to de Sade, the criminal---the murderer, rapist, sodomite, pedophile, thief--- is the truly free man.

In short, within the evolving universe of matter and energy, all appetites, no matter how sick and twisted, are normative and ideal, but when the Bible declares these to be fallen and depraved, it is abnormal and evil.  Hence sodomy, rape, sexual abuse of children, tearing unborn babies apart in the womb, euthanasia and genocide are normal, good, and entirely permissible, while dissent against any or all of these evils is itself evil.

De Sade was a thoroughly reprobate man who refused to consider his perverse ideas and evil actions as in any way wrong. He was an intellectually and morally insane sophist who whipped up moral outrage against God and His Law and relished his self-appointed role as His accuser.

According to de Sade's twisted reasoning, all things unnatural, filthy, and vile are entirely justified by evolutionary naturalism, which has freed man from the God of Revelation and His Law.

The real horror of this worldview is its positive declaration of a “new” satanically inverted-morality which we commonly think of as political correctness with its two overriding absolutes: “tolerance” and “inclusion.” Thus today the brazenly perverse claim of  “politically correct”  moral imbeciles to the high ground where they point accusing fingers at Biblical ethics and the faithful Christians and Jews who hold fast to them.

De Sade was the forerunner of all contemporary shock troopers of evil who today demand total freedom for everything except Christian theism and faithful Judaism, a policy now well-entrenched in the American psyche, and as a consequence, in the White House, Congress, Supreme Court, schools, universities, unions, lower courts, city halls, statehouses, Hollywood, the music industry, and even seminaries and pulpits.

In the burned out areas known today as the post-Christian West and America, self-worshipping conscious products of evolution identifying themselves as everything from witches to goddesses, shamans, “gays,” abortionists, earth worshippers, communists, trans-humanists, and international occult "elites" hold the pseudo- moral 'high' ground from whence they demonize decent, law-abiding  men and women as anti-science creationists, haters, heterosexists, homophobes, racists, fascists, and bigots.

Predictably, the day will arrive--- and perhaps more quickly than we realize---when being a faithful Christian or faithful Jew  is to be a criminal.   This will become our 'new' norm because contemporary products of evolution are just now arriving at the more consistent worldview of de Sade and proactively imprinting it upon our culture, with special emphasis upon our children. De Sade’s evil worldview is coming to fullness within Western and American culture. It is a part of our educational system, our laws, politics, courts, the arts, and entertainment.

We cannot stop the evolutionary worldview merely by opposing it. The worldview that justifies evil and demands the right to debase, pollute, depersonalize, kill and enslave must be opposed by its sole antithesis, the God of Revelation, the Creator who called everything into existence ex nihilo and sustains it by the power of His living word.

The modern faith in man-as-god and the supremacy of his base urges must be countered with God Almighty as the Sovereign dispenser of law and grace. The evolutionary worldview is consistently meaningless and suicidal and casts its followers into the void. The gospel of Jesus Christ however, opens up a supernatural worldview that offers ultimate meaning, hope, and purpose.

Fundamentally, there are only two choices before all men: hope or despair, the Kingdom of God or the kingdom of bestial man, eternal life in Paradise or an eternity in outer darkness.

Luciferian Occultism Overtaking the West

In "Why Some Scientists Embrace the 'Multiverse," Dennis Prager reports that he recently participated, along with 30 scholars, mostly scientists and mathematicians, in a conference on the question of whether the universe was designed, or at least fine-tuned to make life possible, especially intelligent life. Participants — from Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Berkeley and Columbia among other American and European universities — included agnostics, atheists and believers in God.  (Prager, Jewish World Review, June 18, 2013)

Though the clear scientific consensus was that, at the very least, the universe is exquisitely fine-tuned to allow for the possibility of life said Prager, many atheist scientists and fellow-travelers who insist there be no Creator God put forward the notion of a multiverse despite there being not a shred of evidence for the existence of these universes.  

The multiverse hypothesis is a desperate grasp at the fantasy theory first proposed by David Deutsch in his book, "The Fabric of Reality."  Deutsch's theory posits the existence of an infinite number of parallel universes in the vain hope that in at least one of them, conscious life and order arose by pure chance, meaning that living beings created themselves.

 Eminent quantum theorist John Polkinghorne utterly rejects the multiverse nonsense:

 "Let us recognize these speculations for what they are.  They are not physics, but....metaphysics.  There is no purely scientific reason to believe in an ensemble of universes....To my mind greater economy and elegance would be that this one world is the way it is because it is the creation of the will of a Creator who purposes that it should be so." (Cosmos, Creator and Human Destiny, Dave Hunt, p. 209)

 Multiverse speculations, as Polkinghorne pointed out, are not physics but metaphysics, and in fact are grounded in a two-fold neo-Gnostic vision.  First, that living beings created themselves from pre-existing or spontaneously generated matter, and second, the age-old technology of alchemy and its magical meaning: the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the macrocosm's correlation with the microcosm, “As above, so below” symbolized by the Ouroboros---the great chain of being, cosmic tree of life or with Darwin the tree of life.

In modern Luciferian theosophical thought for example, the Ouroboros ‘above’ corresponds to a number of different astral planes and sub-planes comprising the habitations,

"(of all) supernatural entities, the locale of gods and demons, the void where the thoughtforms dwell, the region inhabited by spirits of the air and other elements, and the various heavens and hells with their angelic and demonic hosts....With the help of ritual procedures, trained persons believe that they can 'rise on the planes,' and experience these regions in full awareness." ("Beyond the Body: The Human Double and the Astral planes, Benjamin Walker, 1974, pp. 117-8)

The Ouroboros with its astral planes is well-known around the world in its' many esoteric traditions:

“References to this reality are the Dreaming of the Australian Aborigines, the Spirit-world of Shamanism, the Duart of the ancient Egyptians, the Bardo (Intermediate State) of the Tibetans, the Imaginal world of Islamic Esotericism - e.g. the Barzakh (Interworld) or of Suhrawardi and the Mithal (Imaginal realm) of Ibn Arabi - the Universe of Asiyah of some Kabbalists, or of Yetzirah according to others.  Other descriptions are the Nervo degree of the Physical State of Theon, the Astral or 2nd Prakritic plane (corresponding to the Linga Sharira or Subtle or Astral body) and the Kama (Desire-Plane) of Blavatsky, the Astral Plane of the Adyar school of Theosophy and of popular occultism, Rudolf Steiner's "Soul World"; and the Vital and Subtle Physical described by Sri Aurobindo and Mirra.  These are just a few of the innumerable descriptions of this plane of existence.” (The Astral Plane, kheper.net)

The Apostle Paul speaks not of cosmic trees, astral planes and the beings supposedly existing there but of fallen angels, the "spirits of wickedness under the heavens" (Eph. 6:12) and their chief, "the prince of the powers of the air." (Eph. 2:2) 

According to Paul, fallen angels are dispersed in a multitude throughout the whole blue expanse of sky which is visible to us---the dwelling place for the host of fallen angels who have been cast down from heaven.    This means that in esoteric multiverse theories and occult cosmic tree of life conceptions, the whole blue expanse of sky under the heavens where fallen angels dwell is the Ouroboros/cosmic tree ‘above’ consisting of astral planes and sub-planes connected by the great chain of being up which the initiate spiritually ascends (evolves) by way of ritual (i.e., transcendental meditation, mind-altering drugs) as he traverses the occult Path of Life or Western Magical Way to reach divine status and gain psychic powers. 

Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees champions multiverse conceptions in the hope that in at least one or more of them living beings created themselves who are far more advanced than our own life-forms.  Rees believes that if this is the case, then super-intelligent aliens might be capable of simulating in their brains or in a super-computer the complex history of our universe, meaning the universe we inhabit is a simulation lacking real substance and existing only as a mental construction, a matrix, in the minds of highly evolved aliens who seeded our world with life and travel through time in order to control man’s evolutionary progress. (Scientific Mythologies, James A. Herrick, p. 216)

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

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

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

In the caption of his book, “Just Six Numbers,” Rees reveals the ancient occult basis of his propositions:

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

 "Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field…" — Genesis 3:1

As a powerful occult symbol, the Ouroboros or Uroboros means the seething power, creative and/or evolutionary impulse or energy of the serpent figuratively depicted as either a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.  The serpent's body is often depicted as the Great Chain of Being, Cosmic Tree of Life, or with Darwin, the Tree of Life.  

 The occult Tree of Life with its' multiple dimensions and life-giving energy systems not only powers the universe but reaches into the psyche, stirring imagination, bringing psychic powers and even awakening pre-human memories of when the scientifically "enlightened occult elite,” the Gnostikoi, were fish:

 "Remember when you were a fish...." suggested Jean Houston, the prophet of the possible, in a workshop to awaken ancient pre-human memories.  Nearly a thousand evolved life-forms (people) dropped to the floor and began moving their 'fins' as if to propel themselves through water.  "Notice your perception as you roll like a fish. How does your world look, feel, sound, smell, taste?"  Then you crawled up on land said Houston, so now you must, "Allow yourself to fully remember being a reptile....Then some of you flew. Others climbed trees."   A zoo of beastly sounds erupted from the herd of pre-human birds, reptiles and apes. (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt and McMahon, p. 218)

 From the time of the ancients serpent power has been important to religious and mythological symbolism all around the world. Within the Egyptian mysteries, serpent power was associated with,

..."the elemental forces that were in play before the creation of the world." (Carl Teichrib, Gods of Ancient Egypt, p. 182)

 In China serpents were spiritually linked with earth and water while in Scandinavian myth a world serpent protected man from cosmic forces of chaos.  The self-described Gnostic Carl Jung interpreted the Ouroboros as having archetypal consubstantiality to the human psyche.    Serpent power is also associated with today's occult New Age spirituality as well as Gnosticism, occult Hermetic Kabbalah, Roisicrucianism, Illuminati, Freemasonry and its' blatantly Luciferian sister, Theosophy, where according to Helena Blavatsky, serpent power represents self-generation and evolution through its own creative power

In his book, "The Sign of the Serpent," Mark Balfour relates how pervasive serpent symbols are within India and the Hindu religion:

 "Any observant traveler who moves from the snow-tipped Himalayas in the North to the sun-soaked sands of Cape Comorin at India’s southern tip, will encounter—particularly in the rural areas and at sacred centres of pilgrimage wherever Siva, God of both Divine Wisdom and regeneration, is the presiding Deity—the serpent motif sculptured within shrines, impressed on myriads of stone implants in the ground and depicted in art." (A Short Guide to Occult Symbols: Serpent Power, Carl Teichrib, 2005, Kjos Ministries)  

 Balfour elaborates on this belief:

 "In Hinduism, the Cosmic Serpent—Ananta Sesha—symbolic of timeless eternity, carries the world on his 1000-fold [Cobra] hood…As the creative impulse stirs within the great Serpent in the Sky—when passive idea becomes active thought—the forces of attraction and repulsion come into play as ‘spirit’ begins its involution into "matter." (ibid, Teichrib)

Moreover, Kundalini yoga, a discipline within Hinduism, teaches that latent serpent energy lies at the base of the etheric human spine,

"…like a coiled serpent, ready to spring." (Harper's Dictionary of Hinduism, p. 156, ibid, Teichrib)  

 Through strenuous yoga techniques, this Kundalini serpent power uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body. The Kundalini serpent force is considered,

 "(to be a) concentrated field of intelligent cosmic, invisible energy absolutely vital to life beginning in the base of the spine as a man or a woman begins to evolve in their first incarnation." (The Donning International Encyclopedic Psychic Dictionary, p. 343, ibid, Teichrib)

The serpent power/Masonry connection is revealed by occultist Mason Manly Hall who says that when the Mason learns how to properly channel the power of the serpent he has learned the mystery of his Craft:

The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy.” (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies, William T. Still, p. 30)

In “Occult Theocracy,” Edith Starr Miller elaborates on the serpent power/Masonry connection:

Luciferian Occultism controls Freemasonry (and) is therefore not a novelty, but it bore a different name in the early days of Christianity.  It was called Gnosticism…” (Occult Theocracy, p. 198, 1933)

 Free Masonry is grounded in occult Hermetic Kabbalah, the non-Jewish version of Kabbalah, a syncretic system that draws on Gnosticism, Western astrology, alchemy, ancient Egyptian drom which the alahnry connectionntherefore not a novelty, but it bore a different name in the early days of Chhermeticism, Greco-Roman nature religions, Eastern mysticism/reincarnation/karma, spiritual and biological evolutionary conceptions, neoplatonism, the Enochian system of angelic magic of John Dee and Edward Kelley, rosicrucianism, tantra, and tarot cards, which are seen as keys to the Tree of Life. 

Occult Hermetic Kabbalah is also the underlying philosophy and framework for Western magical societies such as the Golden Dawn, Thelemic orders, mystical-religious societies such as the Builders of the Adytum and is the precursor to the Wiccan, Neopagan and Luciferian New Age spirituality over-taking Western and American civilization.

Regarding the importance of occult Hermetic Kabbalah to Freemasonry, Albert Pike--the most influential Freemason that has lived---has this to say in his Morals and Dogma:

"The Kabalah is the key to the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists. (Morals and Dogma, p. 626) 

The famous scientist, engineer, religious writer and mystic, Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) claimed to have been instructed by beings on other planets as well as by angels during his astral plane travels.  Swedenborg has influenced a long line of scientists, philosophers, modern science fiction writers and movie producers as well as Joseph Smith. 

 Swedenborg described Masonry as a search after Light said Pike:

"That search leads us directly back, as you see, to the Kabbalah. In that ancient and little understood medley of absurdity and philosophy, the Initiate will find the source of many doctrines; and may in time come to understand the Hermetic philosophers, the Alchemists, all the Anti-papal Thinkers of the Middle Age, and Emanuel Swedenborg. (Morals and Dogma, p. 741)

The Gnostic Hermetic Kabbalah holds to the neoplatonic conception that the manifest universe (One Substance) of which material creation is a part, arose as a series of emanations or evolutions from the godhead or divine Cosmic Spirit.

In his Dictionary of Mysticism and the Occult, Nevill Drury writes that the Hermetic Kabbalah's Tree of Life consists of ten spheres,

"...or sephiroth, through which—according to mystical tradition—the creation of the world came about. The sephiroth are aligned in three columns headed by the supernals and together symbolize the process by which the Infinite Light…becomes manifest in the universe." (A Short Guide to Occult Symbols: The Tree of Life, Carl Teichrib)

 The sephiroth also have a role resembling that of the "...charkas [sic] in yoga."

In other words, the sephiroth symbolize the consubstantiality or oneness of the initiate's intellect with the Divine Substance (i.e., ancient Egyptian Nu, Chaos, Brahman, Omega Point, Singularity) as well as the seething evolutionary energies of Lucifer (Moshiach/Nachash/Gematria) while chakras refer to psychic centers that lie along the spine of the etheric body that awaken by way of kundalini serpent power yoga.

For the initiate, the deeper meaning of the Hermetic Kabbalah is the Tree of Life (snake’s body) ‘above’ as well as the inward path ‘below’ in which the adept who has mastered the seething energies of Lucifer discovers and experiences the "inner light" (also called the divine spark and inner Christ).

In short, Hermetic Kabbalah is a system of Luciferian teachings and evolutionary conceptions which open up the mind and the soul to a new level of understanding from the snake: salvation comes from within.

From the Renaissance to our own time, Gnostic Hermetic science packaged as biological and spiritual theories of evolution, various Tree of Life conceptions together with pre-existing or spontaneously generated matter theories, multiverse conceptions, Teilhard’s Omega Point and trans-humanism’s Technological Singularity for example, has swept the post-Christian West and America, even entering into the whole body of the Church.

Luciferian Occultism: Serpent Power

In "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), writes that during the Renaissance Christian mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg discovered Hermetic magic and esoteric Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah.  Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science---the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through ritual procedures (and for Swedenborg astral plane traveling) is the best proof of the divinity of Christ.    In other words said Molnar,

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

From then till now, Luciferian occult science has been working steadily toward its’ goal to invert, pervert, and replace the living word of God (Matthew 4:4) beginning with the book of Genesis, the book of beginnings divinely revealed to Moses for our edification and salvation.   As a result, the majority of contemporary Christians no longer know that Genesis is the living Word of God because they have lost contact with the early Church Fathers, the living link between the ancient texts containing God's revelation and today's esoteric evolutionary imperative.

 In their day, just as in our own, many people erroneously interpreted Genesis, especially the first three chapters, as an allegory, denying it has any literal and historic meaning.  Therefore the Church Fathers who wrote on Genesis made a specific point in saying it has literal meaning that we must understand correctly even while explaining that anthropomorphic statements about God describing Him as a man who sits on thrones for example, are to be understood symbolically.

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

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

Church Fathers make the point that the whole of creation, including the soul of man, was brought into existence from non-existence (ex nihilo), not from eternally existing or spontaneously generated matter as ancient and modern evolutionary adherents and Luciferian occultists believe.

 On the miraculous creation of the first man Church Father John Chrysostom writes:

And God formed man of dust from the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul….the inbreathing communicated to the one created out of earth the power of life, and thus the nature of the soul was formed.  What does a living soul mean?  An active soul, which has the members of the body as the implements of its activities, submissive to its will.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p.215)

 Gregory of Nyssa adds:

The body and the soul were formed at the same time—not one before and the other afterwards…” (ibid, p. 218)

 Jesus Christ, the “angel” who spoke with Moses at Sinai, is the Creator.  Foremost of His miracles is creation out of nothing—six acts or days of creation rather than the billions of years of evolutionary alchemical process out of matter:

The first moment of time is the moment of God’s creative act and of creation’s simultaneous coming to be.” (Philosopher and New Testament scholar William Lane Craig quoted in “If God created the universe, then who created God?’ by Jonathan Sarfati, Creation Ministries International)

With Irenaeus, the doctrine of creatio ex nihilo was well established. He also argued that the world (matter) was not coeternal with God:

 "But the things established are distinct from Him who has established them, and what [things] have been made from Him who has made them. For He is Himself uncreated, both without beginning and end, and lacking nothing. He is Himself sufficient for this very thing, existence; but the things which have been made by Him have received a beginning... He indeed who made all things can alone, together with His Word, properly be termed God and Lord; but the things which have been made cannot have this term applied to them, neither should they justly assume that appellation which belongs to the Creator." ("Is Creatio Ex Nihilo A Post-Biblical Invention? An Examination Of Gerhard May's Proposal," Paul Copan, Trinity Journal 17.1; Spring 1996)

 The Fourth Lateran Council of 1215 affirms creation ex nihilo:

 "We firmly believe and simply confess that there is only one true God ... the Creator of all things visible and invisible, spiritual and corporeal; who from the very beginning of time by His omnipotent power created out of nothing [de nihilo condidit] both the spiritual beings and the corporeal." (ibid, Copan)

 On creation ex nihilo, the Westminster Confession of Faith (1646) asserts:

 "It pleased God ... in the beginning, to create or make of nothing the world, and all things therein" (IV.I; ibid)

 The divinely inspired Genesis account of creation ex nihilo is a great stumbling block for contemporary Westerners and Americans---including great numbers of Christian theologians--- brought up with an evolutionary outlook, an antihuman, occult Luciferian/Gnostic materialistic worldview that has left them spiritually and morally impoverished.  

 "But in his estate shall (Antichrist) honour the God of forces." Dan. 11:38

Today the Nachash, the occult planetary-elites God of forces has confused, deluded and mesmerized vast numbers of Westerners and Americans.  As the animated seething energy called evolution the God of forces is the principle miracle-producing power of the cosmos. Having transformed the consciousness of his followers, they are no longer the spiritual image-bearers of the living Triune God but evolution’s conscious products who can achieve ever higher levels of consciousness by directing their own evolution.

So complete has the transformation of consciousness been that the God of forces has successfully inverted the order of creation and for increasing numbers of deluded Christians, reversed the direction of Biblical theism. With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, it is now believed that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection. Self-perfecting man no longer needs the living, supernatural God as the idea of "conscious evolution" means he can save himself, and perhaps even attain god-hood.

As the 'Christ' of the hugely popular "A Course in Miracles" the God of forces states that there is an "irresistible Force" within each person, a universal Force that when activated grants unimaginable psychic powers, even immortality.  The 'Christ' tells New Age leader Barbara Marx Hubbard that on the day of Planetary Pentecost a Planetary Smile will flash across the faces of all people who have accepted the Luciferian Initiation.  There will be "uncontrollable joy" that the 'Christ' describes as the "joy of Force" that will "ripple" through the one body of humanity.  ("False Christ Coming: Does Anybody Care? Warren B. Smith, p. 120)

The God of forces who is the serpent power worshipped by mankind from antiquity, the god of Gnostic Masonry, the seething energies of Lucifer, the serpent power of Kundalini yoga, the body of the occult Tree of Life, the Cosmic Spirit of the universe, the Singularity and the Collective who represents self-generation and evolution through its own creative power poses a question to his enthralled worshippers,

"What if I am not a 'man' at all, but rather a Force, an 'Energy" in the universe, that IS the universe, and that is, in fact, All That Is. What if I am The Collective?" ("God" in Conversations with God: Book 3, p. 125, Neale Donald Walsh, ibid Warren B. Smith, p. 122) 

Tragically, many people today, including growing numbers of Christians, are being seduced by an occult planetary mythology that grew out of the Renaissance and maintains that man is not fallen, that he is ultimately perfectible through a process of evolution and that through leaps of consciousness he can realize that he is God.   The common thread among all occult Hermetic science, secret societies and esoteric teachings since the Renaissance is a single mind directing the formation of the new religious consciousness.   It is the mind of the same fallen angel who tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden with the words, “Ye shall be as Gods.” (Gen. 3:5)

When finally the man of lawlessness arrives and appears to triumph for a time, in the end it is he whom the Lord Jesus,

….shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming, him,” (2 Thes. 2:8)

The Georgia Guidestones: America's Coming Holocaust

"[T]here is a plan for world government that is in place and eating like a metastasized cancer into every nation, free and bound, in the world. Under the banner of saving the planet we are drowning liberty." (Agenda 21: How the U.N. Reaches into Your Home Town, Lee Duigon, chalcedon.edu)

The reason for the paucity of news reporting on Agenda 21 said Duigon, is because it has been deliberately designed and executed to operate out of the limelight.:

"It has not been debated in the U. S. Senate. It has not come up in presidential debates. It requires no active participation of the national government. And it is cloaked in euphemisms, most notably "smart growth," "sustainability," and, of course, 'green.' Whenever you hear any of those terms used by a public official, be suspicious. Agenda 21 is lurking in the background." (ibid)

The religious creed of Agenda 21 is secular pantheist. Its' logo is "the interlocking circles of Ecology, Economy, and Social Equity.

Its' 'new' 10 commandments are literally chiseled into the towering stone slabs of the Georgia Guidestones.

Sometimes known as Americas' Stonehenge, the Guidestones consist of six granite slabs weighing 237,746 pounds in all. One slab stands in the center with four arranged around it. A message conveying a set of ten guidelines or commandments is inscribed on the structure in English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Russian, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages' scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit and Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The human-hating pantheist nature of the Guidestones is revealed in the first commandment which requires the continuous sacrifice of human life for the good of nature while the tenth reaffirms this requirement:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature

10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature

In other words, the great enemy of Gaia (mother earth) and the collectivized human organism is the individual man, said the powerfully influential New Age transhumanist/pantheist organization Club of Rome:

"The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fill the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself." (http://www.clubofrome.org/ ; green-agenda.com)

The Club of Rome was founded in 1968 at David Rockefeller’s estate in Bellagio, Italy. It consists of current and former Heads of State, UN beaureacrats, high-level politicians and government officials, kings and queens, diplomats, scientists, theologians, economists, and business leaders from around the globe. A short list includes:

David Rockefeller, the Dalai Lama, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Mikhail Gorbachev, Sir Crispin Tickle, Javier Solana, Kofi Annan, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, George Soros, Tony Blair, Deepak Chopra, Desmond Tutu, Henry Kissinger, Marianne Williams, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jane Goodal, Vicente Fox, Prince Philippe of Belgium, and Hans Kung.

Club of Rome (CoR) has spawned thousands of interlocking networks of global organizations such as the World Commission on Global Consciousness and Spirituality (WCGCS).

Whereas reports produced by CoR are framed in secular terms like sustainable world order, global union, united earth community, global society, interdependence, sustainable development, masterplan, and blueprint, reports produced by WCGCS speak in openly mystical pantheist terms such as Teilhard's noosphere, global consciousness, earth consciousness, wisdom, the global mind, the Gaia mind, global ethics, planetization, conscious evolution, the great awakening, the great transition and the great shift.

For example, Princeton University’s Global Consciousness Project (GCP) is an international effort:

"...involving researchers from several institutions and countries, designed to explore whether the construct of interconnected consciousness can be scientifically validated through objective measurement." http://noosphere.princeton.edu/

The GCP was conceived at Esalen, a famous New Age commune in connection with the founders of the GaiaMind Project and describes itself as dedicated to exploring the idea that the evolved human organism is Earth finally becoming aware of itself:

"...the next step in the evolution of consciousness would seem to be our collective recognition that through our technological and spiritual interconnectedness we represent the Earth growing an organ of self-reflexive consciousness....we believe that the Earth is alive, and we are part of it (and) we affirm the Great Spirit of Oneness found at the heart of all the worlds great spiritual traditions." ( http://www.gaiamind.org/ )

Since its inauguration in 1988 the WCGCS has formed powerful interlocking circles, partnerships and collaborations in the interest of pantheist planetary transformation. Toward this end WCGSC has identified a number of pressing priorities and created 17 global councils to address them. http://globalspirit.org/councils.html

Interconnected consciousness, the great awakening, the great transition and the great shift are other ways of saying 'noosphere.' According to the pantheist heretic Teilhard, noosphere refers to the evolution of human thought which heralds the emergence of 'cosmogenesis-God'' or Omega Point.

Teilhard is almost without question the father of the New Age planetary 'environmental' movement now taking the West and America by storm. He formulated the dominant conceptual framework for a planetary religion (pantheist monism) and spiritually totalitarian global order. Describing himself as a mystic and an evolutionary scientist, Teilhard taught that the spiritual, religious and political unification of the earth was the next great evolutionary leap to come and that this totalist fusion (spiritual communism or communitarianism) was as necessary for the survival of mankind as is the fusion of polar opposites (i.e., good with evil, male with female)

While all of these strange terms and 'isms' seem simply bizarre and irrelevant to most people, the occult pantheist New Age movement is front and center internationally, said Dr. Diane Irving, Professor of the History of Philosophy, and of Medical Ethics. In "Foundations of Transhumanism and Futurism," Irving connects the dots between the well-funded and politically powerful New Age pantheism/transhumanism and much of the controversial medical, "... and scientific genetic engineering and nanotechnology research being performed today -- not to mention their intrusion into economics, art, politics, etc..."

Nor do people usually see,

"....how these "isms", so currently active, actually go back many millennia in history, long before the first Pre-Socratic philosophers or the post-Christian Gnostic cults (all of whom were also deeply influenced by them), grounded ultimately in ancient Gnostic cosmogonies and dogmas of various sorts that date from 5000 B.C. at least -- all obviously forms of paganism and pantheism, with obvious negative consequences to Christian and other "theologies" and "philosophies". Most of what Gnosticism would condone and promote would seriously contradict Christian teachings and Western principles." (Dr. Irving, lifeissues.net, September 28, 2012)

In this light we can see that underlying the totalitarian goal of the New Age environmental movement are "ancient Gnostic cosmogonies" requiring the loss of distinctions between male and female, good and evil, truth and lie, man and all other lifeforms, and ultimately between man and God. And since Earth is the goddess Gaia, then private property, use of fossil fuels, and business practices in general are strictly forbidden because everything seen and unseen is "interconnected," meaning that everything is God.

Thousands of individuals, local groups and planetary organizations around the world are all working toward the realization of this "interconnectedness" through the establishment of a one world government:

"Many of these networks expect the United Nations one day to function as the "central nervous system" in the new world order. This new planetary consciousness is shared by many leaders [such as] Robert Muller, Secretary of
the U.N. Economic and Social Council
..." ( "Peace, Prosperity and the Coming Holocaust" Dave Hunt, 1983, pp. 62-63)

Already the mystical pantheist policies of Agenda 21 are woven into,

".... all of the General Plans of the cities and counties in the United States ... for governments to take control of all land use and not leave any of the decision-making in the hands of private property owners.... Its aim is to micromanage the "redevelopment" of towns and cities into forms more agreeable to U. N. masterminds-high-density housing, bicycles instead of cars, reduced living space, restrictions on the use of electricity, public "hearings" and meetings carefully orchestrated in advance to manufacture "consensus" and deter dissent (ibid, Duigon).

In conclusion, the New Age movement is not "new," but ancient. Nor is it scientific. It is rather the culmination of pantheist mysticism and cosmic evolutionism throughout history. It is monistic, meaning that the divinized cosmos is all there is. It speaks in both secular and religious language to transform men's consciousness and put them in touch with their Higher Selves. It erases all boundaries, limitations and distinctions. It believes in the eternal existence of matter, reincarnation and in guidance by Transcended Masters, Spirits and forces. It promotes self-centeredness because it believes man's 'self' is the seat of the Higher Self, or divinity of the cosmos. It is supremely confident about man's next great evolutionary leap towards "oneness" and a one-world totalist order. It has no concept of truth and lie, good or evil, male or female because everything is "one."   It heralds a coming 'selection process' wherein the most highly evolved enter the New Age while for the millions of "unfit" there will be extermination.   And why not liquidate them if reincarnation and karma are true?

And finally, it hates faithful Christians and Jews and especially the sovereign, personal, transcendent God. For God's people there will be yet another Final Solution.
