Yoga's Terrifying Demonic Reality

In “The Yoga of Jesus: Understanding the Hidden Teachings of the Gospels,” made available by Self-Realization Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952) reveals the hidden yoga of the Gospels and confirms that Jesus, like the ancient sages and masters of the East, not only knew yoga but taught this sacred royal science of God-realization to his closest disciples.

Hailed as "the father of Yoga in the West", Paramahansa Yogananda is regarded as one of the great spiritual figures of our time. Born in northern India, he came to the United States in 1920, where for more than 30 years he taught the ancient science of Kriya Yoga meditation and the art of balanced spiritual living. Yogananda emphasized the underlying unity of the world’s great religions, including Christianity,  and taught universally applicable methods for attaining direct personal experience of God within. He founded Self-Realization Fellowship to disseminate his writings and teachings worldwide and through his best-selling classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, and his numerous other books, he has introduced millions throughout America and the world to the spiritual principles of yoga meditation and the universal truths underlying all world religions.

The Second Coming of Christ continues the legacy of the Sanatana Dharma—the perennial philosophy that proclaims the bliss of God as the overarching goal of all religious practice. This consummation is available to one and all, and the apparent exclusivity of Christ’s claim, “No man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6), becomes a promise to all humanity, irrespective of creed. (1) 

Yogananda quotes his own guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar:

"Jesus meant, never that he was the sole Son of God, but that no man can attain the unqualified Absolute, the transcendent Father beyond creation, until he has first manifested the “Son” or activating Christ Consciousness within creation. Jesus, who had achieved entire oneness with that Christ Consciousness, identified himself with it inasmuch as his own ego had long since been dissolved." (p. 1373)

Yogananda elaborates: 

"The Christ Consciousness present in Jesus, and in all vibratory creation and phenomena, is the noumenon, “truth,” the primary substance and essence of life of everything in creation. No human being who is a part of vibratory creation can take his consciousness to Cosmic Consciousness, “the Father”—which lies beyond vibratory creation and the immanent Christ Consciousness—without first experiencing the Christ-imbued Cosmic Vibration, or Holy Ghost, that manifests vibratory creation, then passing through the God-reflection of Christ Consciousness. In other words, to “come unto the Father” every human consciousness has to expand and attain realization of the Cosmic Vibration first, and then know Christ Consciousness, in order to reach Cosmic Consciousness."(pp. 1373–74)  

 Today millions of Americans practice forms of Eastern meditation and yoga to achieve oneness with the Christ Consciousness and be released from the bondage of opposites,

"...and to succeed in joining the dark and light sides of existence."  Dr. Peter Jones, Star Wars and the Ancient Religion

In "One or Two?" Dr. Jones, Director of truthXchange and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary California writes that a wide variety of occult spirituality is now available. There is something for everyone:

"A Course in Miracles, Alchemy, American Indian Quest, Ancient Mythology, Arkashic Record, Aryuvedic Medicine, Astrology, Bahai'i Unity, Buddhism, Buddhist/Christian Dialogue, Chakras, Channeling, Christian Monastic Mysticism, Crystals, Divination, Dream work, Druidism, Eastern Meditation, Eckankar (soul travel), Ecofeminism, Enneagram, EST, Feng Shui, Gnosticism (ancient and modern), Goddess worship, Hare Krishna, Hermeticism, Higher Self, Hinduism, Holism, Human Potential Movement, Hypnosis, I Ching, Iridology, Jungian Transpersonal Psychology, Kabbalah, Karma, Mandalas, Mantras, Mind-altering drugs, Parapsychology, Past Life Regressions, Reiki, Re-incarnation, Religious syncretism, Rolfing, Sacred Technologies, Santeria, Scientology, Shamanism, Sufism, T'ai Chi, Tantrism, Tarot Cards, Teilhardism, Therapeutic Touch, Tikkun, Transcendental Meditation, Ufology, Urantia Book, Visualization, Wicca, Yoga, Zen." (pp. 40-41)

It is well documented that perversions, murder, demonic possession and other evils, including human sacrifice, occur in Western witchcraft, Satanism and Eastern mysticism (e.g., tantric yoga) as well as pagan and pantheist occult religion in general. In his "Occultism, Witchcraft and Cultural Fashions," the noted cultural anthropologist Mircea Eliade of the University of Chicago refers to the interconnections between European witchcraft and Hindu Tantric yoga....the royal path to raising Kundalini Serpent Power.  Eliade argues that "even a rapid perusal of the Hindu and Tibetan documents" reveals the connection:

"As a matter of fact, all the features associated with European witches are – with the exception of Satan and the Sabbath – claimed also by Indo-Tibetan yogis and magicians. They too are supposed to fly through the air, render themselves invisible, kill at a distance, master demons and ghosts, and so on. Moreover, some of
(them) boast that they break all the religious taboos and social rules; that they practice human sacrifice, cannibalism, and all manner of orgies, including incestuous intercourse, and that they eat excrement, nauseating animals, and devour human corpses. In other words, they proudly claim all the crimes and horrible ceremonies cited ad nauseum in the western European witch trials." (Psychic Forces, Chapter 22, "The Occult History of Parapsychology," Clifford Wilson and John Weldon, pp. 341-49)

Kundalini is the key term in Pandit Gopi Krishna’s  (1903-1984) theory of evolution. Coming from ancient Sanskrit, it means “coiled up” like a snake or spring, and implies latent serpent power or potential to expand. Gopi Krishna translates it as “lat­ent power-reservoir of energy” or “psychosomatic power center.” Kundalini, he claims, 

“...is the fundamental bioenergy of life, stored primarily in the sex organs but present throughout the entire body. This potent psychic radiation is normally associated with the genitals for simple continuance of the species by providing a sex drive. This is what Freud called libido (although the Freudian conception is strictly psychological and lacks the energy tie-in to physics and biology which Gopi Krishna is pointing out).”  (Kundalini: Universal Ladder of Awakening, Atlantis Rising Magazine, Jan/Feb 2010)

The very popular Tantra Kundalini yoga is based on the occultic chakra system which teaches that a universal evolutionary energy (Kundalini Shakti, the Supreme Power; serpent power) coiled at the base of the spine flows through human beings and through all of creation, uniting everything above and everything below, thus acknowledging divinity in all things and all people. Through strenuous yoga and other occult techniques outlined in ancient and modern texts, Kundalini Shakti uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body. During so-called kundalini arousal, which may last for months or even years, protracted insanity and/or demonization must be endured. In the words of power yogi Muktananda:

"I was assailed by all sorts of perverse and defiling emotions....my breathing (became) disturbed...my abdomen would swell with air...my mind was sick with fear (my) thoughts became confused, meaningless. My limbs and body got hotter and hotter....Then I felt a searing pain...I wanted to run away, but my legs were locked tight in the lotus posture.....Then...a moonlike sphere...came floating in (it) struck against my eyes and...passed inside me...I was terrified (but) still locked in the lotus posture (with) my head forced down and glued to the ground....I started to make a sound like a camel, which alternated with the roaring of a tiger (I went) completely insane (and jumped and hopped) like a frog (while) my limbs (shook) violently. (Later) I learned that this was a Hatha Yoga process effected by the Goddess Kundalini in order for Her to move up through the spinal column into the sahasrana (upper psychic center.)" (Play of Consciousness, Swami Muktananda, pp. 75-81, 84-85, 88-89)

With continued practice, surrender, and preparation, one day the kundalini current (possessing demon) will reach full voltage and there will no longer be anyone home but an unholy spirit residing in an empty shell of a body:

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity. The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)." Finally it happened – explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated. Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels." "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..." (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45)

Yoga is an occult or mystical technique that originated in the Orient. Eastern mysticism, Wicca, contemporary Luciferian Theosophy, and occult spiritual New Age have in common, spiritistic or animistic backgrounds resulting in the development of psychic powers and contact with demons, or familiar spirits.  

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) was a noted German theologian, minister and evangelist who pastored, counseled, and delivered thousands of people suffering from the occult, including the demonically oppressed. In his book, "Occult ABC: Exposing Occult Practices and Ideologies," he wrote that missionaries and Christian researchers:

" ....who have lived in Asia for many years claim that between 95 and 98 percent of the nonChristian population have psychic powers (which) vary considerably in strength, depending on the extent to which the person has been involved with the occult practices of Asiatic religions." (p. 9)

Behind magic, mysticism and the occult, the yoga system of initiation is present. The first stage of yoga has the aim of helping the student to "gain control of his consciousness and his body," said Koch, who goes on to enumerate the mental and physical exercises:

"...meditation, autogenic training, concentration, and "koan," a litany involving the continuous repetion of a mantra (secret word). The physical exercises include breathing exercises and various bodily postures like the lotus position, the cobra position, and the headstand."

The first stage of yoga is psychosomatic, meaning it produces unity of body and mind. The second stage builds off of the first in order to produce control of the unconscious mind:

"When a person has mastered the second stage, he can control and guide, for instance, his visceral nerves. I have met masters of the second stage who can perform astonishing feats." (p. 258)

The third stage of initiation is concerned with the mastery of natural powers:

"It is the specialty of Tibetan yogis to combine magic and yoga. (A) master of this art, the adept (apprentice) has to be able to produce energy in the form of heat in a natural object, such as melting ice by means of mental concentration." (Koch, p. 259)

At the fourth stage of initiation, the yogi gains mastery of the dark arts and new powers including telepathy, presentiments, second sight and all the powers of a supernatural order which are indispensable for occult activities. (Koch, p. 260)

Former guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj, now a committed follower of Jesus Christ, describes his former occult rituals and their terrifying consequences:

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

Dr. Koch strongly advises Christians to steer clear of yoga:

"There are many Christians who believe that it is possible to participate in (the) first stage of yoga without harm. It is merely a matter of relaxation exercises (they say). If only this were true! Counseling experience tells otherwise. This technique of relaxation and these "emptying exercises" (of the mind) lead to the inflowing of another spirit---other spirits. The students of yoga do not notice it." (pp. 257-258)

Yoga: Refined Royal Science of Babylon 

Neo-paganism, witchcraft, and Eastern systems are of the world view of monism which teaches that all that exists is one self-evolved, self-sufficient substance and/or energy field which may be divine spirit or impersonal mind (pantheism) or spiritless physical substance (materialism).

Monism is held in common by all of the world’s ancient mystery religions underlying modern Secular Humanism (evolutionary secular humanism) and occult New Age spirituality, a kind of Cosmic Humanism firmly anchored in Hinduism and Buddhism.  

All of the ancient mysteries were monistic.  Monism originated in the city of Babylon in Mesopotamia and migrated from there to every corner of the world. Hinduism is an offshoot of the original Babylonian monism (via the Aryans of ancient Persia) and Buddhism is an offshoot of Hinduism:

All of the Eastern religions of today are ultimately traceable to ancient Babylon, where the post-Flood rebellion against God began.”  (The New World Religion, Gary Kah, p. 246)

The heart of ancient mystery traditions is the Great Lie of Genesis 3.  Emanating from the heart are four central presuppositions:

1. Monism:  There is no Creator-creature distinction, or distinctions between good and evil, male and female, past and present, immutability and change. Nor is there eternal separation of saved and lost. Thus all men are gods in process of evolution.  From this it follows that all separations (i.e., male from female, light from dark) and oppositions such as those presented by good and evil are illusory manifestations of the one divine substance (occult reality).  All objects (planets, rivers, trees) and individuals are parts or aspects of the all-inclusive divine one-substance:

The Hindus call it atom-paramatma, Brahmin, and sat-chit-ananda (‘being-consciousness bliss’)   (The Mystery of Death, Tal Brooke, p 97)

2. Man is inwardly divine, one with God in essence. Since there is only one substance or energy field and men are emanations of it, then mans own consciousness provides the specific connecting link.  In experiencing this reality via meditation, yoga, and other occult techniques, man experiences oneness with the divine.  All forms of occult philosophy are united around the central belief that the inner or real self of man is God:

This is the fundamental form of the primary lie spoken of in Genesis. ‘You will be like God,’ Gen. 3:5, RSV (ibid)

3.  Life’s purpose is to realize the divine within. The path is usually the way of supreme illumination or gnosis (supreme knowledge) reached by spiritual and psychic techniques practiced by craft adepts and adepts of raja or kundalini yoga:

The idea is that the person is a cosmic amnesiac who has forgotten his true divine identity, but the right system will remind him that he is really God after all.  The closer he is to becoming God, the more conscious he becomes.” (ibid, p. 98)

4.  Self-realization leads to psycho-spiritual power.  As an initiate of the craft (witchcraft) or yoga advances upon the path of enlightenment or gnosis he becomes increasingly attuned with the divine ‘one’ and its relationship to the material world of reality, ‘creation.’  Thus as man-god he allegedly becomes master and creator of his own reality.  And since reality is supposedly composed of consciousness, the adept learns to control reality by controlling consciousness.  Therefore, since matter is created or dematerialized with the ease of a divine conjurer the universe is the creation of the man-god:

“It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever.” (Algeny, Jeremy Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

Yoga does not liberate, it enslaves, it binds. It does not enlighten but rather causes confusion. It does not prepare the way for Jesus Christ but rather makes people immune to redemption through Christ, for it does not open the door for the Holy Spirit but for unholy spirits.

In post-Christian America, occult spirituality is all the rage, thus it comes as no surprise that yoga courses are being conducted in churches and schools all over southern California, New York, and elsewhere. Course descriptions read:

"Age and developmentally appropriate yoga poses, breathing exercises, chanting, meditation, and relaxation techniques offer a child-friendly relationship to the physical and philosophical traditions of yoga." (The Emperor's New Yoga Pants, Mary Eady, truthexchange, Dec. 1, 2011) 

The almost 2000 year old Book of Revelation summarized and distilled over 1500 years of biblical prophecy in its far-reaching vision of the final world order, a planetary empire involving religious, economic, political, and military forces under an occult spiritual regime of absolute oppression and delusion known as Mystery Babylon.

Under the guise of science, evolution, and technology, the already emerging world order offers itself to us as Hermetic wisdom teachings whose origins are ancient Babylonia, Egypt, and according to New Age historians, pre-flood Atlantis.  As it was in the days of Noah, the Babylonians and Egyptians were earmarked by their embrace of the Great Lie and by their sorcery, initiations (i.e., four stages of yoga), secret words (mantras), psychic powers, hedonism and androgyny.

God the Father Almighty does not deny the reality of psychic powers but we learn that the true source of occult powers is the Great Red Dragon, Satan. Yahweh abhorred these practices and warned His people against them in Isaiah 8:19, Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and Leviticus 19:31.

Respected English archeologist and historian Alexander Hislop traced Babylon's Mystery Religion, first to Egypt and then to India. He said:

"The Babylonians...worshipped a goddess mother and son (Semiramis and Tammuz). From Babylon, this worship...spread to the ends of the earth. In Egypt, the mother and child were worshipped (as) Isis and Osiris. In India, even to this day, as Isi (or Parvati) and Ishwara....(Thus the) Hindu mythology is admitted to be essentially Babylonian." (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, p. 11)

The mystery religion of Babylon is the mother of all post-flood mystery religions (i.e., Eastern mysticism, Theosophy, esoteric Free Masonry), initiations (stages of yoga) and occult evolutionary science. It promises the keys to psychic powers, immortality, and divinity. Over the centuries it has fermented "into a refined wine---the Chateau vin du Rothschild of mystical wines," said Brooke. Revelation predicts that at some point the whole world becomes drunk on the wine of Babylon, its psychically-empowered celebrants convinced of their own divinity (Rev. 16:17-21; Rev. 17: 1-6).

The Dark 'God' of New Spirituality

Western and American culture has been hijacked by a spiritual ideology that Dr. Peter Jones calls Neo-Paganism and of which John Frame in the foreword to the book ‘On Global Wizardry,’ describes as an historical and worldwide

 "…movement of enormous cultural power, one that has sought for centuries and still seeks to dominate our world." (The New Spirituality, Emerging Church and the Bride, christianspectrum.org.uk)

 New Spirituality is grounded in a one-dimensional evolutionary cosmogony and is therefore both vehemently anti-two dimensional Genesis creation account ex nihilo and orthodox Christian and faithful Jew.  It holds that each world religion of nature shares a single universal truth---that the divine energy or consciousness (One Substance or Mind) has manifested itself through many deities in different places and at different times.  Thus no one deity can express the totality of the divine energy or consciousness.  This is called polytheism.

 New Spirituality has six other core beliefs:

1.   The divine energy or consciousness is present in nature and in each one of us.  This is called pantheism - the divine is everywhere.

2.  The divine energy is represented by both female and male energies.  These two major aspects of the divine are the goddess and god, although the divine, being beyond limitations of gender, is androgynous.

 3.   The 'Pagan Ethic' (also called the Wiccan Rede) is followed: If it harm none, do what you will.  This means a pagan cannot cause harm to anyone or anything, including themselves.

 4. Every person is god because they are aspects of the divine consciousness

 5. The purpose of life is overcoming "self." To new spiritualists from some Buddhist and Hindu traditions the "self" must be merged (lost) in the Divine Energy or Consciousness

 6.  Forecasting a pending, and for them a highly desirable "selection" of mankind in which the progressives enter the New Age millennium and the reactionaries face extinction. For the New Spirituality Apostles of "progressive" Social Darwinism, these casualties are a necessary price to pay for human evolution."  (False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, Lee Penn, p. 7)

 This "new" yet very ancient spirituality is a syncretic stew consisting of elements of Mystery Religion Babylon, Kabbalah, Egyptian Hermetic magic, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnostic paganism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Luciferian Theosophy, Wicca and progressive evolutionary Christianity united by a determined commitment to moral relativism and tolerance that paves the way for a one world religion. John Frame comments:

"These movements are parallel to one another, even congruent.  So they form a single movement in effect.  They work together, drawing on one another for support and inspiration, affirming one another, while they unite in opposing biblical Christianity." (ibid)

 In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called the New Age or new Spirituality Bible, Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) concurs and enthusiastically reports that a great, shuddering irrevocable shift in consciousness is overtaking us,

"It is a new mind, a turnabout in consciousness in critical numbers of individuals, a network powerful enough to bring about radical change in our culture.   This network....has already enlisted the minds, hearts and resources of some of our most advanced thinkers, including Nobel laureate scientists, philosophers, statesmen, celebrities....who are working to create a different kind of society...The technologies for expanding and transforming personal consciousness, once the secret of an elite, are now generating massive change in every cultural institution---medicine, politics, business, education, religion and the family."   (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 34)

 Ferguson lists a number of  consciousness altering techniques:
 
".....Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Focusing, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control..."  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, p. 43)

 Among other techniques for getting in touch with the "Christ consciousness" inner “Light,”  the "Force," "Mind of the Universe" and seething energy of Lucifer or the angel (Lucifer) are strenuous physical exercises, special diets (especially vegetarianism), Kundalini yoga, brain-altering drugs, trance music, mind science, chanting, psychodrama, consciousness-raising strategies, hypnosis and self-hypnosis, body disciplines and therapies such as hatha yoga and aikido as well as sensitivity groups and encounter groups, Zen, Tibetan Buddhism and transcendental meditation and yoga. 

The altered state of consciousness by which a man supposedly enters into communion with the "Mind of the Universe" with the help of spirit guides is called "opening of the senses" in Scripture:

"Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way with his drawn sword in his hand."  (Numbers 22:31, also see 2 Kings 6:17; Luke 24:16-31)  

Hypnotic trance-states are linked to ancient pagan religious practices and eastern mystical experiences that are essential to such practices as out-of-body experiences, astral projection, and Yoga. Historically, hypnosis has been an integral part of world pagan religious practices and pantheist systems stretching back to the mother of all such systems: Babylon.  

In ’Recognitions’ church father Clement records an evil deed committed by the Gnostic pagan magician Simon that bears a striking resemblance to the effects of modern altered state of consciousness techniques.   Clement reports that Simon had begun to commit murder by inducing a child to experience an out of body situation.  By way of mesmerizing,

"...abominable incantations he separated the soul of a child from its own body that it might become his assistant for the production of whatever apparition he might require.  And he drew a likeness of the boy, and keeps it set up in the inner chamber where he sleeps, affirming that he...formed him of air by transformations such as the gods cause..." (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember, p. 181)

In his interpretation of this dark passage, G.H. Pember concluded,

 "...by mesmerism Simon had drawn out the spirit of the boy into a higher...state, and then omitted to recall it, so that the spirit had finally separated from the body; and that he had done this for the purpose of procuring a (spirit) familiar....Simon....denied the murder of the boy by asserting that he had merely resolved a spirit-form which he had himself produced." (Earth's Earliest Ages, p. 182)

 In his 'Apology' church father Tertullian writes that if magicians can produce apparitions, bring into evil repute the spirits of men who are dead,

 "....mesmerize boys to obtain an oracular response...perform many wonders...by their conjuring illusions; send dreams by the aiding power of angels and demons whom they have...summoned to their assistance; through whose influence also goats and tables have been made to divine; how much more will that Satanic power be zealous to do with all its strength, of its own will, and for its own purposes, that which it does to serve the ends of others." (Pember, pp. 184-185)

Since during trance states demons can interfere with and even possess the passive or empty mind, meditation therefore serves as an open doorway into the realm of evil spirits and dangerous demonic deceptions.

In a synthetic way, hallucinogenic drugs also assist users to experience an altered state of consciousness. There are as well certain types of music, such as trance and heavy metal that enhance and in many cases produce in the mind and spirit of the listener an altered state, hence spiritual transformation. In secularized Westerners and unwary Christians alike, altered states by whatever means eventually end in altered world view.

 As it was in the days of Noah

As Ferguson admits, the hypnotic-technologies being taught over and across our culture were once the private domain of ancient magicians and sorcerers.   In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many new spirituality historians claim their traditions originated in pre-flood Atlantis (during the time of Noah) and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon,

 "...and surrounding Plains of Shinar and from there disseminated throughout the earth, including Taoist doctrines of China, Mayan-Aztec teachings of Mexico and Central/South America; Great Spirit teachings of the American Indians, Hindu/Buddhist teachings of Asia, etc." (pp. 250-251)

In affirmation, Church Father Clement writes:

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

 The Tower of Babel was Babylon's founding edifice and spiritual center, observes Brooks Alexander, Research Director for Spiritual Counterfeits Project.  Brooks describes the Tower as an astral temple or gate-way into the dimension of spirits and the Divine Energy.  It therefore represented the structure of the one-dimensional universe:
 
" As the 'cosmic mountain' it tied heaven and earth together.  It was the all-inclusive image of the totality of the universe." (The Big Lie, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, 2005, Tal Brooke, p. 11)
 
The magical meaning of the Tower is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the universe or macrocosm's correlation with the microcosm, "as above, so below" symbolized by the Ouroboros – the serpent-powered cosmic tree of life symbolized by a snake biting its tail.  "Below" corresponds to the earth, initiate (aspiring god man), and Tower and 'above' 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 thought forms 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)

From the time of Nimrod to our own, the serpent-energized Ouroboros with its astral planes has been well-known around the world in its' many esoteric (occult secret) 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)
 
Brooks adds that in the ritual act of ascending the astral altar,

 "…. the priests acted out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos.  The Babylonian monarch was the focus of the occult power channeled through the activities of the priesthood.  He was regarded as a divine being, a god-man."  (ibid, The Big Lie, p. 10)    
 
 In other words, with the help of spirit guides (fallen angels and demons), psycho-technologies and other occult rituals, initiates believed they could spiritually progress or evolve up the astral planes to visit the realm of the gods and become the mouth-pieces for the gods and goddesses.  
 
According to occult lore, at the final level of initiation spirit entities (demons) fully possess the body of the monarch to replace his spirit. This means that the spirit of the monarch is no longer in residence as a 'new' spirit totally possesses and animates the monarch's body.  This is why the monarch thereafter was regarded as a divine being, a god-man.
 
Upon possession of the monarch's body, the spirit exudes a powerful mesmerizing influence that draws most of the community into it’s' sphere of influence and domination resulting in communal possession.  
 
Possession takes two forms, communal and individual.  Communal or collective possession is,

"...strongly institutionalized, and ritualistically induced, but peripheral possession is more normally individual and spontaneous." (Demonic Possession: A Medical, Historical, Anthropological, and Theological Symposium, John Warwick Montgomery (ed.), Bethany, 1976)

 Possession and Other Dangers of Mind-Altering Techniques

 According to a 1987 New York Times article, psychologists who have studied mind-altering techniques said that while participants are in this 'altered state' group-leaders are able to implant new ideas and alter thinking processes:
 
"Gurus hired to motivate workers are raising fears of 'mind control." (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt, McMahon)
 
This charge is so grave and frightening that former University of Wisconsin psychology faculty member Edwin Morse warns that graduates of New Age courses being required for employees of many businesses are often "psychologically scarred."  Now in private practice and specializing in helping such people, Dr. Morse declares:
 
"These (mind-altering) groups are using hypnotic procedures and people are not being told about it." (Dave Hunt, p. 42)
 
Richard L. Waring of Budget Rent-a-Car Corporation asserts that mind-altering techniques induce a trance-like state and adds that many participants are convinced that they have come

under harmful, frightening influence from spirit entities as a result.  Arguing that people exposed by employers to,

  "New Age psycho-technologies (for) altering normal consciousness....ought to be told up front" that inevitably their "fundamental worldviews and Judeo-Christian religious beliefs' are being tampered with.  

 Waring adds,

 "For about the last three years, I have observed the introduction and growth of a new philosophy of human potential and development (most often referred to) as the 'New Age' movement... I began noticing a number of consultants and corporate Human Resources Development practitioners who were promoting 'higher creativity,' 'improved memory,' 'accelerated learning,' 'stress management.'  I found that most of these methods were somewhere on Ferguson's list of 'means to altering consciousness'(and) I began to wonder about the motives of the persons selling these concepts. Were they really out to improve human potential? Or had they had some profound experience on their spiritual journey and were really enlisting others to follow their path?" (ibid, pp. 42-43)

 In our schools children are being taught the ancient occult art of "centering," a psycho-technique that opens up their minds to the influence of demons.  In his book, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom," Allen Quist warns:

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

Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, has also been following the explosive growth of occult New Age spirituality. In a work entitled, "Teachers, Preachers and Greens: The Unholy Alliance to Transform America," DeWeese reveals the existence of a well-funded yet covert effort to alter the consciousness of American society through an aggressive assault on schools and churches.  He reveals that the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City is one of the initiating centers of the assault and the home of the enormously influential occult spiritual Gaia Institute as well as the Temple of Understanding — a politically influential U.N. Non-Governmental Organization. DeWeese describes a pagan "church service" at St. John the Divine:

"As the congregation sit in their church pews in the great Cathedral of St. John, the Divine in New York City, the priest stands at the altar, ready to receive a procession of animals for the annual Feast of Saint Francis blessing. Down the aisle comes a procession of elephants, camels, donkeys, monkeys and birds. These are followed by members of the congregation carrying bowls of compost and worms. Next, to the sounds of music come acrobats and jugglers. In the pulpit, former Vice President Al Gore delivers a sermon, saying, "God is not separate from the Earth." (federalobserver.com)

So-called 'extraterrestrials' are also at work.   In "Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection," Gary Bates reports that the abduction phenomenon is occurring all over the world, including Third World countries. 

  UFO researcher Jacques Vallee concurs and notes that the abductee's perceptions of reality (consciousness) are being profoundly altered and adds that the structure of abduction stories is identical to occult rituals:
 
"...contact with ufonauts (is) a modern extension of contact with non-human consciousness in the form of angels, demons, elves, and sylphs....Such contact...often leaves marks and scars on the body and the mind..."   (p. 230)
 
 UFO research-scientist John Keel also likens modern alien abductions to contact with the demonic:

 "Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology.  It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have...coexisted with man throughout history....The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not identical, to the UFO phenomenon.  Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees..."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 260)
 
After considerable research, Bates connects psycho-techniques utilized by ‘ETs” to hypnosis.  So-called 'aliens' use hypnotic methods to enter into the subconscious mind to plant subliminal messages and alter thought processes to embrace the concept of naturalistic evolution which negates the Genesis account. (Bates, p. 262)

Globalized New Spirituality

The Book of Genesis informs us that before the great flood the antediluvian world was in a frenzy of wickedness, no doubt aided and abetted by the Watchers.   God's wrath fell upon that world while a remnant was preserved in the ark.   But scarcely had the waters receded when Ham rediscovered and resurrected the teachings of the Watchers from the antediluvian world.  Utilizing these teachings, Nimrod turned the people away from the worship of God and revived the necessary elements of Mystery Religion Atlantis to establish his own post-flood version. 

 While Mystery Religion Babylon is the post-flood root of all mystery religions, in its' final version, communal and individual possession will become a global phenomenon as untold millions of people ritualistically act out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos:

".....I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe.  Thereby, too, my deepest 'pantheist' aspirations. It was especially the image of God which Teilhard saw in need of urgent redefinition. Modern man has not yet found the God he can adore, A God commensurate to the newly discovered dimensions of the universe." (Towards a New Mysticism, Teilhard de Chardin and Eastern Religions, Ursula King, p. 172

 “Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the ‘divine,’ it’s transcendence into ever higher forms of life.  Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine.  This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity.  Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...” (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)   

 As they spiritually rise on the astral planes who is the god they will become "one" with? 

 New spirituality relies heavily on the spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Of these it is Blavatsky who reveals this closely guarded secret.   

 Blavatsky founded the Theosophical Society to promote occult doctrine, religious philosophy and wisdom tradition.  Theosophy holds that all pagan religions are attempts by the Occult Brotherhood (fallen angels) to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that each pagan religion therefore has a portion of the truth.  These teachings, which Blavatsky called ‘The Ageless Wisdom’, had previously only been available to Secret Societies from the time of Babylon and Atlantis, but she obtained them from the Brotherhood during her travels to Egypt and India. (ibid, christianspectrum)

 In her book, ‘The Secret Doctrine,’ Blavatsky reveals the name of the "god" of New Spirituality:

 "Satan and his rebellious host will thus prove to have become the direct Saviours and Creators of divine man . . . It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God.  Satan (or Lucifer) represents the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, this ever-living symbol of self-sacrifice for the intellectual independence of humanity.    

 In volume II of “The Secret Doctrine” she said:

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

 “And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” (brimstone was a theological improvement), and Lucifer, or “Light Bearer,” is in us: It is our Mind – our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism. Without this principle… we would be surely no better than animals” (ibid)

Now it becomes clear why leading new spirituality adepts speak of the necessity of the Luciferian initiation for all who wish to enter the coming utopian millennium.

 Revelation reports that at some point the whole world will become drunk on the wine of Babylon, its' deluded celebrants convinced of their own deity when in reality they've received the mark of Satan. 

 The clearest answer to the apocalyptic atmosphere of our time is found in the Bible.  We are living in the Last Days.  History is winding down and Satan is mobilizing his forces for a final all-out assault--- which we are already experiencing (1 Tim. 4:1 and 2; Tim. 3:1-4) The demonic realm is brazenly interacting with our own realm, and it is in this light that we can understand the growing epidemic of madness, extremism, paranoia, suicide, apathy, apostasy, lawlessness, and hatred appearing on every side. 

 We are living in the days of a demonic nature, said Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987).  For over fifty years Dr. Koch's name has been synonymous with authoritative and biblical insights and help for all who desire to understand or escape from the mesmerizing influence of the occult and demonic world.  According to Koch, civilization is marching toward its own destruction and if we fail therefore to take our stand at the foot of the cross,

 "... fail to build our house upon the Rock, (we will) be swept away by the turmoil of the End-times."  (Demonology Past and Present, Koch, p. 37)

The One-World Neo-Marxist Green Religion

The genocidal evolutionary humanist nature religions--- neo-pagan Communism, occult pagan Nazism and America's Progressive Leftism---were spawned by the anti-Christian God and utopian tradition of Revolutionary France. The Black Book of Communism, an 800-page compendium of the monstrous crimes committed against humanity by Communist and Socialist regimes worldwide graphically details the terror, torture, man-made famines, mass deportations, starvation, destruction of the family, sexualization and perversion of children, and massacres undertaken on behalf of revolutionary utopian ideals.  The reality of Communism, which claimed to be an emissary of the Enlightenment, of universal brotherhood, and of happiness for all as envisioned by Gracchus Babeuf, turned out to be a sadistic engine of unimaginable evil and the creator of hells on earth. 

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)  

Licensed by Darwinism, these murderous god-state governments systematically dehumanized and murdered millions of "useless eaters"  "human weeds" and other undesirables to create an imaginary earthly Eden and this is clearly insane.   In this sense totalitarianism is the secular and religiously pantheist equivalent of a pagan nature worship religion grounded in scientism evolution, technology and a dehumanizing man-centered cosmogony where the majority of humanity is on a par with slugs, weeds, and apes, thus entirely expendable.

This evil religion continues today as a universalist one-world neo-Marxist green pagan spirituality, a technocratic scientific dictatorship grounded in an evolutionary cosmogony and revitalized Ba'al and "Mother Earth" (Gaia) worship necessitating massive global-wide human sacrifice on behalf of saving the environment. The high priests of this evil religion are highly evolved god-like "chosen ones," the "morally pure" who are saviors of the world, bringers of their own salvation and ideological subversives.  Ideological subversion is a great psychologically manipulative mind-conditioning process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages:  demoralization, ideological subversion, destabilization, and crisis:

Demoralization is a de-Christianizing process that takes from 15 to 20 years to achieve.. This is the minimum number of years required to ideologically educate one generation of students.  In other words, Marxist-Leninist ideology is pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of America's Biblically grounded worldview:

"The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already for the last 25 years. Actually, it's over fulfilled because demoralization now reaches such areas where not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such tremendous success. Most of it is done by Americans to Americans thanks to lack of moral standards (thus) exposure to true information does not matter anymore..."  ("Yuri Bezmenov on demoralization" Interview with Yuri Bezmenov, ex-KGB, by Edward Griffin, 1984, reposted on Free Republic, 2008, "Soviet Subversion of the Free Press: Ideological subversion, destabilization, crisis, and the KGB))

Also called Agenda 21, this evil religion is grounded in evolutionary biocentrism or ecocentrism, terms synonymous with sustainable development, global warming/cooling/change and cultural determinism, the parent of identity or class politics and group solidarity (neo-tribalism). In its turn, cultural determinism was birthed by the Darwinian idea that life emerged (created itself) from primordial slime (or star stuff with Sagan), thus man is an uncreated (evolved) soulless animal, therefore his identity is determined by for example, his skin color or his sexual and/or erotic preferences.

This proposition rejects the concepts of the human soul (inner person), individuality, free will,  morally informed conscience and the existence of the God of the Bible, the One God in three Persons Who created man in His spiritual image.  In short, the creation of a new Marxist world order requires the death of the Christian God and the spiritual enslavement (mind control) of all mankind.  Darwinian cultural determinism makes the individual man into nothing, and this is the key to the mental enslavement of mankind, that he be made into a bio-machine that operates,

"... as the physical part of what is considered a higher group intelligence and acts at the will of that higher intelligence….”  (School of Darkness, Bella Dodd)

Cultural determinism, said David Horowitz, is identity politics,

"the politics of radical feminism, queer revolution, and Afro-centrism-which is the basis of academic multiculturalism...a form of intellectual fascism and, insofar as it has any politics, of political fascism as well." (Mussolini and Neo-Fascist Tribalism: Up from Multiculturalism, by David Horowitz, Jan. 1998)

Evolutionary biocentrism (cultural determinism) is a 21st century revamped version of Marxist Communism's Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking, the engine of evil that unleashed rivers of blood in Marxist controlled Russia and Nazi controlled Germany.

  Biocentrism:  Eliminating Human Weeds

"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…the real enemy…is humanity itself."  (The First Global Revolution, published by the Club of Rome)   

 "In Guyana, within 2 years, it (DDT) had almost eliminated malaria…my chief quarrel with DDT…is that it has greatly added to the population problem."  (Alexander King, former president of the Club of Rome)

How Many Sub-Humans Should be Allowed to Exist?    

"The total world population should be no more than 2 billion rather than the current 5.6 billion."  (Cornell University professor David Pimentel, speaking before the American Assoc. for the Advancement of Science)

"The damage people cause is a function of demographics…One American burdens the earth much more than 20 Bangladeshes…In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day."  (Jacques Cousteau, the UNESCO Courier, Nov. 1991)

"Cut the population by 90%"  (Dr. Sam Keen, Gorbachev Conference in San Francisco)

Intentional Unleashing of Plagues  

"I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing.  There are others…If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate…without making the world too full…the state of affairs might be unpleasant but what of it?  Really high-minded people are indifferent to suffering, especially that of others."  (Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society)

Although they've not managed to spread a Black Death (as yet), they have thus far managed to ignite a worldwide conflagration of STDS and AIDS.  Keep in mind that, backed by Obama and America's State Department, it is pagan and pantheist progressives, liberals, the men of Sodom,  and their international cohorts who have been proclaiming the international rights of "gays" and preaching their gospel of ''salvation and redemption by sex'' (so-called safe sex). 

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

In "The One-World 'Green Religion' is the Root of the Future One-World Government" Brannon Howse of Worldview Weekend offers the following breakdown of essential components of the One World Green Religion:

1.The theology of it is pantheism.

2.The philosophy of it is pagan spirituality.

3.The biology of it is Darwinian evolution.

4.The economic system of it is socialism.

5.The politics of it is globalism.

6.The activism of it is centered on radical environmentalism and political correctness (cultural Marxism).

7.The goals of it are a one-world government, a one-world religion, and a one-world economic system.   

 Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic survived communism and now warns the world about the "chosen ones" ultimate goal: the elimination of freedom.  In his book, Blue Planet in Green Shackles, Klaus argues that murderous green pagan environmentalism masks socialism, communism, and fascism.  The ultimate goal is,

 "completely about power and the hegemony of the 'chosen ones' (as they see themselves) over the rest of us, about the imposition of the only correct worldview (their own), about the remodeling of the world."   (ibid, Howse)

Klaus further explains that the goal of neo-Marxist green environmentalism and climate change is to completely destroy private property rights and the free enterprise system by limiting the "carbon footprint" of individuals and companies, growing the size of government,  and ushering in global police state socialism.  Klaus told the Washington Times:  

  "I understand that global warming is a religion conceived to suppress human freedom."

In "Judges plan to outlaw climate change denial," Christopher Booker reports that a semi-secret, international conference of top judges propose to enact thought-control laws by making illegal any opinion that contradicts climate change.  Including senior judges and lawyers from across the world, the three-day conference on “Climate Change and the Law” was staged in London’s Supreme Court:

" It was funded, inter alia, by the Supreme Court itself, the UK government and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).  As one of the two UN sponsors of its Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, UNEP has been one of the main drivers of alarm over global warming for 40 years. The organiser and chairman of the conference was the Supreme Court judge Lord Carnwath, a fervent believer in man-made climate change, who has worked with the Prince of Wales for more than 20 years, and with UNEP since 2002." (telegraph.co.uk, 11 Oct 2015)  

Admissions from totalitarians and their equally corrupt lackeys:

The goal now is a socialist, redistributionist society, which is nature’s proper steward and society’s only hope.” David Brower, founder of Friends of the Earth
 
Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?”- Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Program

Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.” UN Agenda 21
 
“I envisage the principles of the Earth Charter to be a new form of the ten commandments. They lay the foundation for a sustainable global earth community.” – Mikhail Gorbachev, co-author of The Earth Charter
 
We are close to a time when all of humankind will envision a global agenda that encompasses a kind of Global Marshall Plan to address the causes of poverty and suffering and environmental destruction all over the earth.” Al Gore, Earth in the Balance
 
We have reached the critical moment of decision on climate change. Failure to act to now would be deeply and unforgivably irresponsible. We urgently require a global environmental revolution.” Tony Blair,former British PM
 
Climate change should be seen as the greatest challenge to ever face mankind.” Prince Charles
 
Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.” – Barack Obama, US President
 
We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”- Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation
 
No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”- Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment
 
Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It’s global warming. It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world.” Harry Reid, U.S. Senate majority leader

"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" 2 Corinthians 10:5

 Today millions of dumbed-down, mind-conditioned people are becoming converts of the murderous one-world Green Spirituality, and the end result will be the destruction of their very souls.   Against this, the Lord calls upon all faithful Christians everywhere to expose false teaching, false religions, false science (i.e., evolution) and the lie of Satan.   Brannon Howse explains that our goal is to discern and understand the times,

"in light of Scripture so we can be involved in worldview evangelism, contend for the faith, expose every high and lofty thing lifted up against the principles of the Lord, and occupy until the Lord returns."

Is the World a Computer Simulation in the Minds of Robotic Overlords?

Is the world as we know it a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings?  This is the "scientific" theory put forward by a number of physicists and Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom. (Is Our Universe Fake? Physicists Claim We Could All Be Playthings of an Advanced Civilization, Ellie Zolfagharifard, Daily Mail, Aug. 4, 2015)

Nick Bostram is one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association.  Transhumanism is a blend of Gnostic paganism and Eastern occult pantheism undergirded by a strong Darwinian impulse.  It ascribes to the idea of a New Man as the product of a process of progressive evolution issuing in an upward spiritual and physical transformation toward ultimate absorption into a Cosmic Mind, a Conscious Universe, the One, or perhaps Brahman.    Transhumanism's New Man is a counterfeit of the Christian vision of a new and perfected human race spiritually and physically transformed by the redemptive activity of the Holy Triune God. 

Modern pagan Gnostics hate the Holy Trinity and suggest that He is some sort of evil "Alien Supercomputer," reminiscent of entities depicted in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey:

"It is perhaps a ripe coincidence, that the Coptic word for simulation found in Gnostic texts is hal, recalling HAL the rebellious computer in Kubrick's 2001."  (Gnostic insights on God as an Alien Supercomputer, Dr. John Singh, Aug. 2011, agoracosmopolitan)

In the modern Gnostic pagan context, the Holy Trinity is the expression of an evil ego-driven consciousness, the Lord Archon--- a "projection" of artificial intelligence.  This Lord Archon has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent man from knowing that his real home is the Cosmic Mind or Gnostic Pleroma of which man is a divine part or aspect. 

The Lord Archon, the evil Holy Trinity in orthodox Christian theism, 

"... is called antimimon pneuma "counterfeit spirit." (Apoc John III, 36:17. The term occurs several times in different texts.) The cosmos he produces is described by the Coptic term hal, "simulation." The vast planetary system of the Archons is a stereoma, a virtual reality projection in simulation of a higher dimensional pattern.Typically, the Archontic framework of the planetary system has been depicted by "armillary bands" that surround the Earth. (Illustration from A. Cellarius, Harmonia Macrocosma, 1660.) Taken in many esoteric systems (Hermetics and Rosicrucianism) as the preeminent image of cosmic harmony, the model of the planetary spheres reflects a mindless imitation of divine design, not the living reality of the cosmos. " (ibid)

In addition to its Gnostic pagan ideations, the teaching that the world is a simulation in the mind of Overlords is strikingly similar to Hinduism's Brahman.   Brahman however, is not an evil Archon but the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (prakriti matter, anima mundi or prima material), the 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)   

 Brahman is the Void, an indefinite and seemingly infinite field of energy that the Eastern-oriented pantheist quantum physicists Zohar and Marshall call the ‘quantum vacuum,” a background without features that seems empty yet is where all physical objects originate:

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

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

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

The Void is the ultimate ground of being and occult mystical religious experience. As the beginning and ending of all reality, the Void or vacuum is “the vast sea of all else that is.”  Moreover, humans are excited modes of the Void:

“…the vacuum has the same physical structure as human consciousness.”  As this is the case, then the soul of the Void and soul of the human are one and the same substance.  “There is…quite possibly a common physics linking human consciousness to the ground state of ‘everything that ever existed or can exist’ in the universe (and we) are part of it.  Each one of us as an individual is an excitation of the vacuum, an individual being on the sea of Being” and this is a straightforward conclusion of “orthodox physics.  It is…proven.” (pp. 172-173)

The devilish goat-headed Baphomet, known as the phallic god Pan, the ancient hermaphrodite god of nature is another version of the divine one substance (prima material/Void) from which the universe and all life evolved. In astrology,  

"...Pan is one aspect and is also equated with Satan and life...in its base aspects."  (J.E. Cirlot, A Dictionary of Symbols, 1971)

Like Bostrom, Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees believes that 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)

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 Cosmic Mind with Star Maker or 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," or Self is Star Maker or Self is Cosmic Mind, all of which meansman is god. (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)

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 or Cosmic Tree of Life.

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 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)

In conclusion, the Robotic Overlords are a continuation of pagan influence throughout Christian history that in our own time has grown increasingly assertive, openly hostile and organized:

"In the twentieth century the pagan influence is pervasive, as many Westerners turn from Christianity to seek meaning in pagan myth and the new occult."  (The Pagan Temptation, Dr. Thomas Molnar)

The modern pagan revolution, in its inception, was relatively bloodless.  But its consequences have been exceedingly bloody.  A river of blood flows from the French Revolution through the Marxist Communist and National Socialist regimes into America, which has sanctioned the murder of over 60 million unborn babies.  Living, personal beings are routinely crushed within the womb and pulled out to be cut into pieces which are then sold and used as flavor enhancers, in cosmetics and for various scientific enterprises, including creation of humanized mice.  

Ideas have consequences.  The destructive ideas of our paganized age have their roots in Gnosticism and Eastern occult pantheism.  Thus the noonday sun reveals the merging of good with evil, light with dark and the resulting destruction of  the sanctity of life, the sanctity of marriage, the sanctity of sex, and the sanctity of the sacred itself,

"The culture is not merely post-Christian and post-modern.  It has become not only neopagan, but neo-barbarian."  (R.C. Sproul, The Other Worldview, Peter Jones, p. XII)

Why Post-Christian America has Surrendered to Androgyny (Transgender)

Based on an analysis of the foundational presuppositions of Mormon theology, this writer predicted in a 2013 essay entitled, "Why Mormonism will Surrender to Homosexuality," the capitulation of the Mormon church and by extension the Boy Scouts to inclusion of practicing homosexuals.   Now with passage of the Supreme Court ruling, Obergefell v. Wade and by extension the declaration that a man (Bruce Jenner) is a woman (Caitlyn), post-Christian America has also surrendered to the pagan ideal of androgyny.

 The reason for both Mormon and American surrender lies in one of the many crucial differences between Mormon theology and Biblical: the Genesis account of supernatural creation ex nihilo rather than a naturalistic and evolutionary account.

 Like ancient pagan sages before him, Joseph Smith taught that matter is eternal and the Mormon God, having no power to create out of nothing, merely reorganized already present matter, which has no beginning or end and cannot be destroyed:

"Since Mormons believe that the elements are eternal, it follows that they deny the ex nihilo creation." (Encyclopedia of Mormonism 1:400).

From this it follows that a mere man can transform and/or evolve into a god, as the great Mormon prophet Joseph Smith explains:

"It is necessary we should understand the character and being of God and how he came to be so; for I am going to tell you how God came to be God. We have imagined and suppose that God was God from all eternity. I will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see. and that he was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself did... Here then, is eternal life – to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priest to God, the same as all Gods have done before you, namely by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one. . . . (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, 345-47)

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

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

 In the "Pagan Temptation," Christian scholar Thomas Molnar reports that the idea that matter is eternal is a pattern of thought stretching back to the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greeks in the West and in the East to the Upanishads.  In this way of thinking, everything somehow mechanically emerged, evolved, or progressed out of either eternally existing matter as the ancients and Joseph Smith taught, or in contemporary terms from out of matter spontaneously-generated by an exploding Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) and evolution directed by a man-controlled god

From Babylon's evolutionary account of origins, the Enuma Elish, on through to our own time, primordial matter has gone by many names. For example: divine One Substance, Logos, watery abyss, void, Omega, Quantum Void, and the Energy behind everything.

The Egyptian Sun-God Ra, for example, emerged (created himself) from out of Nu – the divine One Substance (primordial matter) and then similar to Joseph Smith's account, became god "by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one:"

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

In all mystical pantheist systems positing matter as "psychic energy," "spirit," or impersonal, unknowing Mind, Molnar writes that spirit is not personal. It is neither male nor female. It does not live, think or speak; it merely is. The human soul therefore is not created in the spiritual image of the living One God in Three Persons, thus it follows that humans are not persons but rather uncreated aspects or units of the evolving universe of matter and energy.  Nor are they either male or female but rather two-in-ones, meaning androgynes or transgenders as they are called today. (Psalm135:15-18)   

 This is naturalism, which is the belief – taught by Joseph Smith, progressive creationism and its' many permutations--- evolutionary theism, evolutionary Christianity, quantum spirituality, New Age and transhumanism – that there is neither living supernatural Holy God nor heavenly realm outside of the space-time dimension. There is only the man-centered natural dimension in process of evolution where progress means that children may choose their own race and gender:

"The state of Delaware is poised to adopt what is known as “Regulation 225.” Approved both by the Delaware State Education Association and Gov. John Carney, Regulation 225 would safeguard children’s “protected characteristics,” such as gender, age, race, sexual orientation and gender identity.” (Barbara Kay: Delaware Students Can Now Choose Their Own Race. This Should End Well” National Post, Feb. 13, 2018)

 Naturalism is held in common by paganism, mystical pantheism and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-Biblical – but more specifically, non-Genesis account (creation ex nihilo) – thought systems.

At the heart of ancient and contemporary naturalism is monism, which refers to the view that pre-existent or spontaneously generated matter is the Ultimate Substance of which the universe and all things are made, therefore as the ancient Hermetic magic formula decrees, "as above, so below," or all is one.

In his book, "The God of Sex: How Spirituality Defines Your Sexuality," Dr. Peter Jones writes that pagan monism,

"(is) a mystical, unitive experience, a state in which distinctions disappear and opposites are joined. Androgyny, on a sexual level, reflects and confirms such an experience." (ibid, p.79)

Writing during the student revolution of the 1960s, Francis Schaeffer saw a transformation of consciousness, or closing of the heart to Jesus Christ permeating and overtaking the Western mindset, moving it away from the Christian ideal to the pagan model:

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

 Under the unitive influence of monism male and female distinctions drain into androgyny, hence the use of toddlers, older children and even babies for the sexual satisfaction of adults is not only tolerated but prized, hence the pagan sage Xenophon declared:

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

Now that the Supreme Court has redefined marriage to accommodate homosexual (two-in-ones) love, the use of babies and children for the sexual satisfaction of adults looms large:

"Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals" Already, "Sex offender laws protecting children have been challenged in several states including California, Georgia and Iowa. Sex offenders claim the laws prohibiting them from living near schools or parks are unfair because it penalizes them for life."  (That was FAST: Yesterday it was gay marriage; Now look who wants “equal rights”  Ashley Edwardson, allenbwest.com, June 27, 2015

John W. Whitehead, a constitutional attorney, is the founder and president of The Rutherford Institute and the author of Battlefield America: The War on the American People. In a well-sourced article on The Rutherford Institute, Whitehead alerts us to these alarming and horrific facts about child sex-trafficking in the U.S.:   

"Sex trafficking—especially the buying and selling of young girls—is the fastest growing business in organized crime (CBS Austin) and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally, after drugs and guns (WGBH).  Why?  Because, as investigative journalist Amy Fine Collins points out, it is ‘more lucrative and much safer to sell malleable teens than drugs or guns.  A pound of heroin or an AK-47 can be retailed once, but a young girl can be sold 10 to 15 times a day.”  (Child Sex Trafficking is the Fastest Growing Criminal Business in the U.S., Dr. Eowyn, The Olive Branch Report, Feb. 15, 2018)

The USSC’s legalization of same sex marriage means there will be no logical end-point as to where such affective attachments could lead—transgender mating, incest, pederasty, pedophilia, sado-masochistic homosexuality, polygamy, and eventually zoophilia.  And everyone will be obliged to conform.  Since our culture is thoroughly sexualized and there are already few, if any, sexual moral standards, the generally amoral and dehumanized view of life communicated to the nation's children in nationwide school curricula and perverse sex education classes will descend into deeper levels of chaotic darkness.

Though heralded as a great victory for progressive forces, the Supreme Court ruling actually represents a great inversion and reversal of reality:

"Augustine in his City of God vividly describes the 5th century pagan “games” offered in honor of Tanit, the celestial “virgin” and mother of the gods. He also describes the public display of the goddess’s homosexual priests. “They were seen yesterday, their hair moist, their faces covered in make-up, their limbs flaccid, their walk effeminate, wandering through the squares and streets of Carthage, demanding from the public the means to subsidize their shameful life.”  (The Body Politic is Queer, Dr. Peter Jones, truthxchange, June 26, 2015)

We still have such parades, said Dr. Jones,

The difference is that often at the head of our parades are ordained “Christian” ministers. In some ways the apostate church is leading the culture. Indeed, it is the homosexual “theologians” who really understand the logic behind this cutural movement. Episcopal LGBTQ advocate Marie Alford-Harkey stresses the need for more bisexual-friendly churches, which celebrate sexual diversity through the mediums of preaching and worship, proposing “the Queer God who challenges the oppressive powers of heterosexual orthodoxy…[in order] to liberate God from the closet of traditional Christian thought.” In other words, inclusive churches are not simply accommodating practice but developing a whole new theory of theology and community."

Creation Ex Nihilo, the Incarnation: Repugnant to Nature Systems

"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14

The revolutionary impact of the Christian teaching about creation ex nihilo and the Incarnation was nothing less than a scandal for ancient pagan sages just as it is for 'new' pagan evolutionary naturalists, whether "Christian," New Age or secular as well as for both pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnostic's and Mormon prophet Joseph Smith.

Molnar writes that it is inconceivable to nature sages that God,

"...the spiritual being par excellence, should assume materiality – a thought as distasteful to their contemporaries as the idea of creation ex nihilo, which meant that matter too was God's creation..." (pp. 26-27) rather than pre-existent or  spontaneously generated.

In company with ancient pagan sages, all Western progressive evolutionary cosmogonies reject creation ex nihilo and the Incarnation. While faithful Christians adhere to the fact that Christ's birth was the result of a miraculous conception, that Mary was a virgin yet still conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18), according to the Encyclopedia of Mormonism,

"Jesus Christ is not the Father of the spirits who have taken or yet shall take bodies upon this earth, for He is one of them. He is The Son, as they are sons and daughters of Elohim." (4:1676; Mormonism Research Ministry)

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like unto corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things."   Romans 1:21-26, 28-29

Putting all of this together, the first great stumbling block for all ancient and modern nature systems (progressive evolutionary cosmologies) is that they cannot account for the ultimate origin of life. This is why contemporary naturalists such as SETI researcher Paul Davies and Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the DNA molecule, have rejected abiogenesis, the ridiculous idea that matter spontaneously generated itself from nothing, in favor of panspermia.

Panspermia is the idea that life on earth was accidentally seeded by meteorites containing the essential building blocks of life or perhaps by highly evolved extraterrestrials from deep space who for billions of years have been guiding the evolution of man. The extraterrestrial idea was favored by Arthur C. Clarke in his book, "Childhood's End" and a variation on this theme has recently been advanced by Davies, Crick, and Ralph Pudritz of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.

Crick however admits that panspermia only pushes the unresolvable problem out into deep space:

"This scenario still leaves open the question of who designed the designer [aliens] – how did life originally originate?" (Crick, Life Itself: Its Origin and Nature, 1981)The

The second great stumbling block follows from the first: the inability to account for conscious life, more specifically, personhood, or the soul of man.  This is why cognitive scientist Daniel Dennett, one of the Four Horsemen of Atheism, claims there really is no you, that soul, spirit and will are illusions caused by chemical interactions in the brain while his partner in nihilism, naturalist Tom Wolfe proclaims,

"Sorry, but your soul just died." (The Spiritual Brain: A Neuroscientist's Case for the Existence of the Soul, Beauregard and O'Leary, p. 4)

In stark contrast, the Revealed Word of God easily accounts for both origin of life and conscious life:

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

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

In Biblical thought, the body is inert matter organized and vitalized by the soul. Thus a human life is a soul which informs inert matter, therefore a body without a soul is no more than a disorganized mass of cells that would quickly deconstruct.  The citadel of the soul is spirit, the seat of reason, conscience, memory and will.  In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person.  Moreover, spirit allows man to spiritually transcend the natural dimension in order to access the supernatural dimension, thereby allowing him to enter into a personal relationship with the Spirit of God. Through this relationship, man's conscience is cleansed over time, thus enabling him to more perfectly orient the manner of his existence in this world in preparation for eternity.

A third stumbling block of ancient and modern evolutionary cosmologies is the inability to account for the two created sexes, male and female, since all life somehow emerged out of genderless physical or spiritualized matter. Thus like their ancient counterparts, all modern nature systems, so-called Christian and otherwise, are fated to give way before the demands of gender-neutral homosexuality (androgyny) or queer:

By whatever label – homosexual, gay, man-boy-lover, transgender, drag queen, bi-sexual – androgyny and nature systems go together like a hand and glove. Prior to Jesus Christ's earthly ministry pagan sages generally taught and practiced some form of gender-neutrality in keeping with their belief that matter is the gender-free "one substance" out of which all things emerged. But when Jesus Christ – fully man-fully God – walked this earth, nature sages came face to face with the awful truth that the personal God really exists, and further, that He really did create just two distinct sexes, male and female.

Just as pre-flood men and post-flood nature sages and temple priests had exchanged the truth about the Holy God of Revelation for a lie (Romans 1:25-27)  so have their modern "scientifically enlightened" counterparts---progressive theologians and their secular pagan and occult pantheist counterparts  Like pre-flood men and post-flood pagans, modern progressives have fallen into depravity, stupidity, idolatry, nature worship and evil. 

Early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and a haughty spirit preceded man's fall. A haughty spirit led them to disregard the higher things of the Holy God and seek in preference lower things here in the natural dimension.

The truth as to evil said Athanasius,

"...is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul "which, materialized by forgetting God," and engrossed in lower things (i.e. matter, chemicals, DNA) "makes them into gods" and thereby "descends into a hopeless depth of delusion and superstition" whereby "they ceased to think that anything existed beyond what is seen (naturalism)....so turning away and forgetting that she was made in the image of the good God...sees no longer the Word after whose likeness she is made...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Ideas have consequences. For Mormonism – as with evolutionary Christianity, its secular progressive derivatives and occult 'green' pantheist New Age spirituality – the predisposing corruption resides in foundational ideations. Thus in the rejection of the supernatural Triune God of Revelation together with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo resides the inability to account for the origin of life, of man's personhood--soul/spirit (reason, will, conscience), immutable truth, moral absolutes, fixed meaning, and evil. (Psalm 115:4-8) And with the rejection of the Incarnation (the historical Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity), comes the inability to logically account for and defend the two sexes. Thus the fate of Mormonism together with evolutionary progressive Christianity, trans-humanism and occult pantheism is to not only fall into moral relativism (subjectivism), depravity, stupidity, confusion, superstition, chaos and idolatry but to give way to the demands of unrestrained libido – including the use of children for the sexual gratification of adults. And these are the crimes against nature said Augustine,

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

Darwinism: Ancient Epicurean Paganism Revamped and Revised for Our Age of Science

"(The UN is) a weird and diabolical convergence of New Age mysticism, pantheism, aboriginal animism, Communism, socialism, Luciferian occultism, apostate Christianity, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism." (The New World Religion: Teaching God's Children to Worship 'Divine Nature.' William Jasper, 2002)

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

In a recent lecture, “Paganism in Today’s Culture,” Dr. Peter Jones, director of truthXchange and Adjunct professor of Westminster Seminary explains that because pagan and pantheist monism erases all boundaries its' gender ideal is androgyny rather than male and female.  As monism cloaked in revolutionary political ideologies, deep ecology, and evolutionary and global change science has replaced America's Biblical presuppositions, social boundaries set by nature no longer exist for this generation:

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

While it is true today that large segments of American culture have converted to religious paganism and mystical pantheism, it is Gnostic secular humanisms' (pagan materialism) “scientistic cosmology” (Darwinism + materialism) that set the stage as long ago as 1850.     As a result, throughout the contemporary West and America the most powerful fortress of mind suppressing truth and dominating, ruling and manipulating our once Christian society can be summarized in one word: Darwinism--- the utterly futile, entirely bankrupt national religion of nihilism and deconstruction. 
 
Darwinism bristles with hostility toward and hatred of the living Holy God, creation ex nihilo, and faithful orthodox Christianity.  This abomination from hell is the foundational and all-controlling fortress  dominating all of modern Western and American thought and culture. It is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum. It influences biological and earth sciences, psychology, anthropology, sociology, economics, law, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines. And for over one-hundred years it has been moving into and subsequently polluting the Church over and across the entire denominational spectrum.
 
At the upper-most layer of this abomination is a man-centered universe entirely stripped of the Holy God, His order of being, souls, spirits, heaven, hell and sin.  The universe of man is set in continuous motion by evolution---the universal life-force.   At a lower level is the ancient Epicurean notion that physical matter in motion within the Void (monism) is the ultimate reality. (Acts 17:18-19)

The principle tenet of the Epicureans held that the world was not made by any deity, or with any design, but came into its being and form, through a fortuitous concourse of physical atoms of various sizes and magnitude that cemented together and so formed the world.

The world and everything in it--life, being, mind--were not created by the Lord but were instead the accidental emergent products of a great cosmic event (Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) that spontaneously generated animated physical matter from nothing. This way of thinking excludes everything unseen, such as the human soul and mind, and holds that humans are aggregates of physical matter in motion in a human form and the human mind an active principle of grey matter.

This ancient pagan way of thinking forms the basis of the materialist psychology of Sigmund Freud, Darwin's evolutionary conception, modern evolutionary biology, secular humanism, secular trans-humanism and Marxist dialectical materialism.

Modern materialism originated in the metaphysics of the ancient Ionians and Stoics during the sixth century BC.  However, it was the Atomists (Leucippus/Democritus, 460-357 BC; Epicurus, 342-270 BC; and Lucretius, 96-55 BC) who methodically developed materialism.

On the basis of these revamped and revised pagan superstitions and presuppositions evolutionary naturalists claim that not only is the living God Who exists outside of this world imaginary, but so too are higher unchanging truths, first principles, metaphysics, absolute moral laws, purpose and meaning.

By its very nature evolution promotes subjectivism (moral relativism) through implied change and negation of higher eternally permanent truths, moral laws, stability and certainty demanded in the Biblical outlook. Instead, by setting all things in motion it necessitates a relentless, random process over time leading to fundamental and destructive changes to Western and American culture, morality, law, national sovereignty, the family, tradition, and even to the definition of man. No longer are there two sexes, male and female but now there are multiple and ever-evolving ‘gender expressions.’
 
As a fortress of nihilism, deconstruction and inversion, when applied to the Bible, Darwinism completely inverts the Genesis account thereby rendering meaningless the entirety of Scripture. In utter contempt of God’s creation, it teaches that man is neither created in the spiritual image of God nor the apex of creation but is rather a hominid of evolution.
 
Evolutionary thinking said Frank Baumer, has inverted reality. It has,
 
“….persuaded people to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation.” The sweeping acceptance of evolutionary thinking means that it is “now difficult if not impossible for an educated man to conceive of a primitive revelation such as traditional Christianity taught, or even of an original natural religion from which men had declined.” This difficulty arises because “in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future.” (Religion and Rise of Skepticism, p. 147)

 Darwinism and/or evolutionary thinking disguises its' hatred of the Holy God, creation ex nihilo (special creation) orthodox Christianity, immutable Truth and Moral Law by deceptively cloaking its’ true nature in the dress of empirical science.   D. M. S. Watson, the Jodrell Professor of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy at University College, London (1921 to 1951) tacitly concurs. He publicly confessed that evolution,
 
“. . . is accepted by zoologists not because it has been observed to occur or . . . can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible.” (December 10, 2011 by Vishal Mangalwadi, revelationmovement.com)

"An age of science is necessarily an age of materialism," declared Hugh Elliot early last century, "Ours is a scientific age, and it may be said with truth that we are all materialists now."  (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, xiv)
 
Darwinism and the Epicurean proposition that all that exists is matter in motion within the Void (monism) are the first principles of the naturalistic worldview proffered by atheists such as Richard Dawkins and all other evolutionary materialists. 
 
Ancient pagan metaphysics revamped for our age of evolution and scientism worship have replaced the living God and His Revealed Word—the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo in particular— as the great explanation of the origin and subsequent existence of life in all of its forms, thus evolutionary naturalists are not merely dependent upon their pagan metaphysics program for their worldview but their worldview amounts to scientism – the belief that modernized pagan presuppositions postured as naturalistic evolutionary science are the great unifying answer to the ultimate questions of human life.
 
In his review of “Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny,” by Robert Wright, Schwartz Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation, John Judis makes clear that Darwinism is in fact a metaphysical evolutionary cosmology explaining,
 
“….how we came to be, and where we are headed… We—the sorry mass of humanity—have made history, but we have often proceeded blindly and without the least understanding of the great project in which we are engaged. Wright should be content that he has described, better than anyone in recent days, the nature and scope of that endeavor.” (John Judis, The Washington Monthly, April, 2000)
 
In his profoundly insightful essay, “Why Christianity Lost America?” Vishal Mangalwadi, author of “The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization,” convincingly argues that,
 
Christianity lost America because 20th-century evangelicalism branded itself as the party of faith. Secularism (science, evolution, university, media) became the party of truth. This is one reason why 70% Christian youth give up meaningful involvement with the church when they grow up.” (December 10, 2011 by Vishal Mangalwadi, revelationmovement.com)
 
In other words, Christians have bought into the lie that defines secularism’s pagan metaphysical cosmology as “factual” empirical science. Thus if evolution and pagan presuppositions are true then the Genesis account is not true, so why bother with Christian theism if it has been scientifically invalidated?

The Principle Enemies of the Revealed Word

In our own time, the antithesis of the Revealed Word remains substantially unchanged from what it was in Paul's time:

"Paul was reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles, and in the market place every day with those who happened to be present. And also some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were conversing with him. Some were saying, "What would this idle babbler wish to say?" Others, "He seems to be a proclaimer of strange deities,"-- because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection. And they took him and brought him to the Areopagus, saying, "May we know what this new teaching is which you are proclaiming?… "(Acts 17:18-19)

The Stoics and Epicureans were the two most prominent schools of nature philosophy/nature science/nature religion of that time. Theirs was an atheistic scientific worldview predicated upon a one-dimensional universe of animated (evolving) physical matter or psychic  energy (spiritualized matter). They were the physicists of their age.

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)  

Atomism: Ancient and Modern

"An age of science is necessarily an age of materialism," declared Hugh Elliot early last century, "Ours is a scientific age, and it may be said with truth that we are all materialists now."  (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, xiv)


Modern materialists such as Julien de la Mettrie (1709-51), Paul Henri Thiery, and Baron D'Holbach (1723-89) all agreed that the mind is the property of physical matter and man nothing but a bio-machine.  La Mettrie speculated that machine-mans rational life is entirely determined by physical causes that run the gamut from raw meat, to climate, blood circulation, and gender.  Genetic inheritance, said la Mettrie, causes machine-man to commit crime.  This view casts parents into the role of "first cause" and would later manifest itself in the belief that State ‘experts,'  or Hillary's "village" experts should have control of children.  (Darwin Day in America, John G. West pp. 16-18)

Pierre Simon Laplace (1749-1827) viewed scientific materialism as not only the pursuit of God-like omniscience but of the Holy Grail itself---power to create a New Man.   If an intelligence could grasp "at a given instant...all the forces by which nature is animated" proclaimed Laplace, it could devise a mathematical formula that would predict everything that would ever happen, and "nothing would be uncertain, and the future, like the past, would be open to its eyes."  Scientists should reduce everything in the universe to mechanical laws that could be expressed in terms of mathematics, advised Laplace, for the promise of such knowledge was incredible power...even over life and mind itself.  (ibid, p. 20)

Herbert Spencer, Fechner, Lotze, Wundt, and pantheist Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the fraudulent scientism dictum---ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny---all agreed that life and mind are properties of physical matter.  Haeckel moreover imagined ether to be the primitive life-making substance which, as was the case with the primitive fire of the Stoics, changed one part of itself into inert mass while the other part became the active principle, spirit.  Today, many scientists routinely resort to Haeckel's postulate without ever inquiring into its pantheist implications.

Haeckel would later write, "Pantheism teaches that God and the world are one...pantheism is...an advanced conception of nature (and) a polite form of atheism."  The truth of pantheism, confessed Haeckel, "lies in its destruction of the dualist antithesis of God..."  The godless world system being constructed, said Haeckel, "substantially agrees with the monism or pantheism of the modern scientist."  (Monism, Ernst Haeckel, www.pantheist.net/)

During the century to follow, Charles Darwin (1809-82)  helped spread materialism to the masses.   As Stephen Jay Gould argues, "Darwin applied a consistent philosophy of materialism to his interpretation of nature, "and "the ground of all existence; mind, spirit, and God (are reduced to) neural complexity." (Darwin Day in America, p. 41)

According to Darwin, deified natural selection and the laws of heredity acting on matter produced mind, morality, and civilization.  By describing how deified natural mechanisms caused the complexity of life to emerge from deified matter, Darwin helped transform materialism from a fantastically bizarre tale told by power-mad Prometheans on the fringe of society to a hallowed scientism principle enshrined and worshipped by modern scientism and ‘enlightened' Westerners.

It was during this time that Social Darwinism, Progressivism, Socialism, Communism, Nazism, and Secular Humanism were developed out of metaphysical materialism.  Classical Liberalism on the other hand, was subverted and corrupted by the materialist faith into what is now known as modern Liberalism.  Of these, Communism (Marx and Engel's dialectical materialism), is considered to be the most highly developed philosophy of materialism.  It rests on three fundamental metaphysical presuppositions:

1. Deified Matter: The Ultimate Substance which, though non-living, non-intelligent, and non-conscious, nevertheless somehow possesses the emergent properties of life, mind, consciousness, and soul.

2. Evolution: Since Marxist dialectic requires a theory with clashes (thesis and antithesis) and leaps (synthesis), Marxists have all but abandoned Darwinism and instead have embraced punctuated equilibrium. "Many people confound dialectic with the theory of evolution," noted G. Plekhanov. "Dialectic is, in fact, a theory of evolution. But it differs profoundly from the vulgar (Darwinian) theory of evolution." (Fundamental Problems of Marxism, 1929, p. 145)

3. Spontaneous Generation: An offshoot of specifically Darwinian thought accepted unreservedly by Marxists as their dialectic requires a strictly materialist explanation for the origin of life from dead matter. In the words of M.A. Leonov: "Marxist philosophical materialism remains beyond all doubt that at some time or other in the remote past, life must have arisen from non-living matter." (Outline of Dialectical Materialism, 1948, p. 494)

In a modified version of the Stoic conception of the earth as a living organism possessed of its own soul, quasi-pantheist dialectical materialism declares that earth is "one entire organism...its organs the various races and nations of men."  Not only is the earth alive and evolving upward on evolution's magical escalator, but so too are history and society, for they also are living entities in a continuous state of motion.  And man?  In a modified conception of Atomism'sdehumanizing view of man, dialectical materialism states that man is nothing but "a colonial aggregation of cells," and to "consider him an individual would be an error."  Man---the aggregate of cells--- is nothing but an extension of society, history, and earth.  (Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics, Chapter II: The Constitution of Man as a Political Organism)

Stoic Pantheism: Ancient and Modern

The Stoics were a celebrated school of severe and lofty pantheists. Their main principle was that the universe of divine psychic energy was under the law of an iron necessity (determinism in Darwinian creeds and karma in Eastern creeds), the spirit of which was what they called the Deity or World Soul.  In this view, which has much in common with Eastern mystical pantheism, reality is not the physical world but rather the spiritual, or World Soul, while the human self is deity in the same way that "All is truly Brahman" (swamij.com) and ayam atma brahman, "The Self is Brahman" (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5)  

Stoic and Epicurean sages received their ideas from ancient Chaldeans, Egyptians and Hindus, whose one-dimensional, evolutionary nature systems extended back centuries before Greek and Roman civilization.  For example, one Hindu belief was that Brahman (the Void, World Soul, Abyss, Nu) spontaneously generated itself as something like a seed or singularity about 4.3 billion years ago and then evolved under its' own power by which it expanded and formed all that exists: 

"These Hindus believed in an eternal Universe that had cycles of rebirth, destruction and dormancy, known as 'kalpas,' rather like oscillating big bang theories.  We also read in the Hindu Bhagavad Gita that the god Krishna says, 'I am the source from which all creatures evolve."  (Evolution: An Ancient Pagan Idea, Paul James Griffith, creation.com)

Modernized Stoic pantheism and its Eastern occult counterpart forms the basis of Carl Jung's psychology, Wicca, occult New Age spirituality, Luciferian Theosophy, spiritual trans-humanism, Teilhard's Omega, Leonard Sweet's Quantum Spirituality, and modern quantum physics to name but a few permutations.

In “The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition,” James Herrick writes that modern physicists claim to have irrefutable scientific proof for the foundational premises of pantheist spirituality. (p. 169)

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

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

According to Zohar and Marshall, the fundamental physics (animated matter and psychic energy) underlying all else in the universe consistof two sorts of particles, bosons and fermions.  Fermions are physical matter and bosons are spiritualized matter---the fundamental spiritual/mental forces that not only bind the universe together but are implicated in the evolutionary origins of the human soul and the emergence of both biological life on earth and of the universe itself.

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

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

The ultimate discovery of quantum physics is trumpeted as scientific proof of the basic correctness ofpantheist theology---matter, collectively speaking, is the divine one substance (i.e., World Soul, Brahman, Omega).

The men call their divine one substance the quantum vacuum.  Their quantum vacuum is strikingly similar to some Hindu and Buddhist accounts of the origins of everything that exists as emanations from the One Substance and/or the Void.   Nor do Zohar and Marshall deny the similarity:

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

From Babylon to our own age, the Void has been viewed as the ultimate ground of being and true mystical religious experience. As the beginning and ending of all reality, the Void or vacuum is “the vast sea of all else that is.”  Moreover, humans are excited aspects or modes of the Void:

“…the vacuum has the same physical structure as human consciousness.”  As this is the case, then the soul of the Void and soul of the human are one and the same substance.

This means that 'god' is within the human mind.  Reality is therefore within human consciousness because man is an aspect of the divine substance:

There is…quite possibly a common physics linking human consciousness to the ground state of ‘everything that ever existed or can exist’ in the universe (and we) are part of it.  Each one of us as an individual is an excitation of the vacuum, an individual being on the sea of Being” and this is a straightforward conclusion of “orthodox physics.  It is…proven.” (pp. 172-173)

Because the divine substance is within human consciousness then we can plug into it, said Emergent Church leader Rob Bell.  According to Bell, the animated divine substance is,

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

Two Dimensions versus One Dimension

Ancient and modern naturalism (paganism/pantheism) is in every way the antithesis of God's Revelation and Christianity, the spiritual and moral foundation of Western civilization. For fifteen hundred years, Christendom and then later Protestant America had affirmed the biblical view of total reality. In this historically unique view total reality consists of two interfacing, interactive halves: the seen (natural) and the unseen (supernatural).

In opposition to the one-dimensional view of reality posited by the principle enemies of the Revealed Word,  Paul teaches a two-dimensional view.  According to this view, man faces both unseen and seen dimensions and interprets truth against these two interfacing halves of reality. Thus Paul declares that as men live out their lives they are spectacles, "unto the world, and to angels and men." (1 Cor. 4:9)

 Thus the earth (the seen) is really a theater and men are actors on its stage observed not only by other men (the seen) but by the Spirit of God and angels (the unseen).

Though men cannot see the Spirit of God and very rarely see angels they can see, hear and interact with men. The Spirit of God opens our eyes to understanding (Ps. 118: 34, 125, 144), tests our hearts, knows out secrets, motives, and thoughts (Psa. 17:3; 44:21; 139:1-4).

Both holy and unholy angels are all around us, watching, listening, helping and protecting if holy, if unholy then binding the disobedient to their power. Just as the Lord of Hosts gives His Holy Spirit to those who love and obey Him, He can send evil spirits upon those who are rebellious, live in persistent sin, practice occult arts or men who in their pride, covetousness and envy reject and hate Him as was the case with Karl Marx and Nietzsche, the apostate Christian philosopher who proclaimed the death of God. Unto these men the Lord of Hosts sent evil spirits just as He sent one to King Saul (1 Sam. 16:14). The evil spirit influenced and disordered Saul's thinking, afflicted him with obsessions, compulsions to murder David, fits of rage, delusions and paranoia.  They befouled his conscience, and inflated his disordered passions thereby, "filling him with unrest, anger, fear and murderous intent." (Occult Bondage and Deliverance, Kurt E. Koch, p. 137)

"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ."  Colossian 2:8-9

The Apostle Paul warned against being taken captive by "elemental spirits" that are “not after Christ."  Byperpetrating deceptions through the elements and powers of the cosmos, Satan lures people away from the Lord Jesus Christ and toward other beings that inhabit the universe, whether real or imagined.   What this means is that the impersonal, mystical evolutionary 'powers' ascribed by evolutionary theologians and their pagan counterparts to the Void, World Soul, Divine One Substance, Teilhard's Omega, Christ consciousness, the Force, evolution, chance, zoe, prakriti matter and so forth are the powers of elemental spirits applied to the inventions of deluded, superstitious men.

Over the past three hundred years the two-dimensional Western Christian tradition grounded in the Revelation of God has been incrementally eclipsed by one-dimensional pagan and mystical pantheist ways of thinking that have been artfully revamped and revised for modern Western consumption.  In “The Making of the New Spirituality,” James Herrick masterfully demonstrates how each major tenet of the Revealed Word has been radically reinvented and is being disseminated by certain scientists, occult New Age gurus, evolutionary theologians, and new religious cults as well as through books, speeches, magazines, popular TV programs, plays, radio interviews, music, and websites.

With regard to the Revealed Word, Herrick lists seven major tenets:

1. The supernatural authority of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures: Beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the Bible is taken to be divinely delivered, thus uniquely authoritative as a source of ultimate truth.

2. A personal, creating and wholly other God:  The Triune God is all-knowing, all-powerful, present everywhere and possesses traits of a personality—thoughts, motives, and the capacity to form relationships.  He spoke the physical and spiritual worlds into existence ex nihilo, or out of nothing.  Moreover He is neither contained in nature in any way nor equivalent with the created order, meaning that man does not have a share of God’s substance as pagan thinking maintains and evolutionary theism implies.

3. God’s creation of the human race: The Revealed Word teaches that the human race is a special creation of God, the only part of the creation to bear His spiritual image (mind/spirit).  Man then is not a product of strictly natural processes.

4. An intervening God: The Revealed Word affirms that God’s activity includes involvement in the lives of individual human beings.  On occasion God’spersonal involvement is in the form of communication and at other times He miraculously alters the ordinary course of cause and effect.  Though He invites address and petition through prayer He is not at the command of human beings.

5. Humankind’s Fall:  The human race fell into sin at the beginning of its existence as a consequence of their refusal to accept divinely mandated limitations on their activities. The Fall carried with it various catastrophic consequences including spiritual confusion, a state of spiritual separation from God and the inevitability of death.

6. Jesus Christ is God Incarnate: Jesus Christ uniquely manifested God in human form.  Jesus is a revelation of God’s nature in person and the only human being to ever fully express the divine nature.  His death and resurrection are uniquely redemptive of fallen humanity.  These events are the sole provision by the living God for the salvation of the human race.  There is no other way but His offer of salvation.

7. Human destiny and divine judgment: The Revealed Word insists that the eternal destiny of the human race is to be determined only by God.  Neither the present earth nor the human race exists indefinitely.  Human beings live but one life.  They do not spiritually evolve or reincarnate.    A final judgment of the human race will occur, and each individual human being will be held accountable for the life lived.

Herrick calls the new pagan spirituality “the New Religious Synthesis” and lists seven of its major components:

1. History is not important: As evolution is a primary doctrine of the new spirituality, and it implies continuous change or transformation, then history as a record of events in space and time is as useless and absurd as are Special Creation, unchanging higher truths, moral absolutes and the two created sexes.

2. The dominance of reason:  Reason—also mind, Christ-consciousness, intellect, awareness, divine spark, pattern, mind-stream or imagination—is the divine essence in humans.  It is virtually unlimited in its potential development through scientific study, evolution, and mystical experiences.  The divine essence is the gateway to human apprehension of spiritual insights such as ‘oneness’ and ‘interconnectedness’ coming to those with the most highly evolved consciousness:

Perhaps the most vital function of psychedelic drugs and plants is their ability to reliably produce spiritual or mystical experiences. These transpersonal experiences of “oneness,” or inseparability, often result in an increased sense of ecological awareness, a greater sense of interconnection, a transcendence of the fear of death, a sense of the sacred or divine, a desire to help humanity, and an identification with something much larger than one’s body or personal life.”  (Psychedelic Drug Research Heralds the Future Science of Divinity, David Jay Brown, Santa Cruz Patch, June 2012)

3. The spiritualization of science: The tool employed by divine reason to acquire new spiritual truths

4. The animation of nature: Nature (matter) is infused with and animated by divine spirit, the Force, Zoe, consciousness, serpent power or life force

5. Hidden knowledge (gnosis) and spiritual progress: Gnosis is the key to spiritual insight and human progress and is the preserve of some scientists, mediums and a new class of Western shamans.  Such knowledge comes by means of science and spiritual technologies that lead to direct communication with the Ultimate Source ( also monistic One Substance, Chaos, Divine Abyss, Primordial Matter, Void, Omega, Quantum Void).

Emptying the mind and disconnecting from reality are the goals of psycho-spiritual technologies:

“…..spiritual power and a vibrant connection with the universe (is attained by) emptying the mind, leaving reality and getting “high” within. Meditation (sometimes facilitated by, in a Woodstock way, listening to rock music, experimenting with sex, and smoking pot or popping hallucinatory drugs—you know, a little help from “my friends”) often induced what can be called “altered state[s] of consciousness….”    “Ecstasy can be deliberately induced using religious or creative activities, meditation, music, dancing, breathing exercises, physical exercise, sex or consumption of psychotropic drugs.” (Altered States: A Different Gate, Sarah Leslie and Pastor Larry DeBruyn, Herescope, April 2011)

 In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called the New Age Bible, Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) reports that many psycho-spiritual technologies employed today for purposes of expanding and transforming personal consciousness were once the secret of an ancient elite going back to Babylon and even Atlantis, according to some New Age historians. (America: The Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt & McMahon, p. 34)

Ferguson lists a number of these consciousness altering techniques:   

"...Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control...." (ibid, p. 43)

6. Spiritual evolution: Spiritual evolution is not simply change but advancement that occurs incrementally over time as the initiate achieves greater and greater interconnectedness with the Ultimate Source.  The eventual result of this process will supposedly be human divinity but in reality ends in insanity and/or possession.

7. Religious pluralism as rooted in mystical experiences of the Ultimate Source:  Mystical experiences of interconnectedness or onenessprovide a basis for religious pluralism:

“Bishop William Swing, of the Episcopal Church’s Diocese of California, thinks he isbuilding a religious bridge to the new millennium, and he wants everybody on Earth tocross it with him. His United Religions Initiative (URI) is trying to create a UnitedReligions, a world parliament of religions, “a permanent assembly, with the statureand visibility of the United Nations, where the world’s religions and spiritualcommunities will gather on a daily basis, in prayerful dialogue and cooperative action, tomake peace among religions and to be a force for peace among nations, to address urgenthuman need and to heal the earth.”  (The United Religions Initiative—Foundation for a World Religion, Lee Penn)

According to Swing’s experience of oneness:

Religion is concerned with the relationship of human beings with their spiritualOrigin. We believe in the universality and eternity of the Spirit. We believe that allreligions derive their wisdom from that ultimate Source. Therefore, the world’s faithtraditions share in common wisdom, which can be obscured by differences in religiousconcepts and practices. … The United Religions promotes dialogue. A theology ofacceptance will help the world’s people explore common ground. Our awareness of unitywithin religious diversity promotes ever-increasing kinship.” (ibid)

So stunning has been the transformation of Western consciousness under the shaping influence of science, evolution and the New Religious Synthesis that it has now supplanted the Revealed Word as the religious foundation of a large and growing number of Westerners and Americans....including large numbers of uninformed Christians.  James Herrick comments:

For many Westerners, the long-prophesied new spiritual age certainly has arrived.  The Revealed Word and its busy, personal God have faded into our collective spiritual memory, and bright new spiritual commitments encourage fresh religious thought.”  (Herrick, p. 16)

As Herrick demonstrates, the pagan way of thinking represented by occult Eastern pantheist creeds, the Stoics and Epicureans are the principle enemies of the Revealed Word and by extension, of salvation unto life eternal.  Thus in obedience to our Lord, and as an act of agape love for the faithful and all who are open to truth, we are to actively contend against these infernal pagan teachings even though our paganized culture and increasingly paganized church not only ridicule, scoff, scorn and reject us but accuse us of insanity, intolerance, idiocy, divisiveness, and hate.

1 Kings 18:21--Scientific Neutrality, Biblical Deconstruction, & Modernist Christians

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6  "...in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." Colossians 2:9

John 1:10 tells us that everything seen and unseen was created ex nihilo by the spoken Word of the Son of God, which means that Jesus Christ was active and present long before His incarnation, therefore eternally co-existent with the Father. (1) Jesus Christ is therefore God just as the Father and Holy Spirit are God, thus the Word of the Old Testament's creation account is Jesus Christ of the New Testament.  Jesus Christ is the Word.   His Word is Truth even as He Himself is Truth, the same today as yesterday and for always.  Thus Jesus Christ does not change and as He is the starting point for the reasoning of the faithful, then  Christians must reject the neutrality principle and doubt, its' ugly twin, the long unchallenged principles in evolutionary modernism's longstanding war against the Word of God---the Book of Genesis in particular---in all its parts... historical, prophetical, geographical, linguistic, and doctrinal. (2)  

When Paul affirms in the Lord that his Gentile readers should no longer live as Gentile pagans do in the futility of their darkened minds (Ephesians 4: 17-24), he speaks to all pagans from antiquity to our own age (i.e., neo-pagan modernists) who reject the pure knowledge of the Holy Trinity and vainly think of themselves as "enlightened" when in reality they are "en-darkened."  Their ignorance is not a lack of education, and some of them are brilliant in their own way, but such brilliance is wasted on vain imaginings and wisdom of this world which will not get them to heaven, thus utterly foolish and futile, especially when combined with hardness of heart toward the truth of the gospel in Christ (Matt. 13:14-15; John 12:40; Acts 28: 26; Rom. 11:8)

"En-darkened" modernists claim scientific neutrality as a general operating assumption. Two applications of modernist thought evidence this:  evolution (anti-creation account/relentless change/relativism), an inverted exegesis that deconstructs and reduces man in the spiritual image of the Trinity to evolved ape, and deconstructionism (destructive criticism/critical theory). Along with evolution, deconstructionism is a form of relativism or nihilism that for more than eighty years has been spilling into and contaminating our moral and culture sustaining institutions from seminaries and Biblical scholarship to academia, law, media, arts, and politics, thence our minds, individually and collectively. (2)

The origin of the neutrality principle is the Garden of Eden. Its' father is the Evil One who tempted Eve to approach the question of eating from the forbidden tree in a neutral, unbiased fashion.  He slyly suggested  that she adopt a neutral position in order to decide who was right, God or the snake.   Like modernists of our own age Eve doubted and therefore rejected God's Word as authoritative and conclusive.  As a true neutralist she determined for herself which choice to take. (Gen. 3:4-6)

Todays' Christian Church and Western culture has for so long been saturated with evolutionary modernist claims of scientific neutrality paired with intellectual and moral autonomy that the ungodly neutrality principle which forbids the existence of immutable Truth and moral absolutes has been thoroughly ingrained in us. It is so constant and we are so accustomed to it that even within the church we fail to discern it.

Neutrality Principle, Deconstructionism & the Historical-Critical Method 

For evolutionary modernists of both pagan and pantheist persuasion to choose to not believe the Word of God on an individual level is one thing.  But in the past few hundred years the world has been witnessing a strange yet consistent phenomenon:  institutionalized Biblical deconstructionism issuing in a concerted drive,

"on an institutional level to rubbish the Scriptures altogether.  It is nothing new of course.  It's just the scale of the enterprise which takes the breath away. And it's not just international. It's global."  (The Authenticity of the Book of Genesis, Bill Cooper, p. 7)

The first Biblical deconstructionists---the ancient "fathers" of today's Biblical deconstructionists---were various Gnostic pagans in the first centuries of the Christian era.  

The methodology employed by the early Gnostic pagan Marcion for example, was to masquerade as a scholar concerned only for truth while really getting rid of everything he was offended by, especially the entire Old Testament which he deconstructed by reducing in its entirety to an unhistorical myth.   In a nutshell, this is the same method employed by modern Biblical deconstructionists. 

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 Gnostic 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 elements of Genesis as Revealed by God 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)

Today it is commonplace for resuscitated Gnostic deconstructionism, otherwise known as the historical-critical method of Biblical scholarship, to be regarded as scientific, thus enlightened, neutral and objective.  Recent decades however, have witnessed a much needed rising awareness that the historical-critical method serves particular ends thus always arrives at certain conclusions.  In the meticulously researched work of intellectual history, "Politicizing the Bible," Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker greatly add to this awareness by bringing to  light the appropriation, deconstruction and paganization of scripture by politically motivated interpreters. 

Shining a powerful light of truth on the techniques taken for granted at divinity schools worldwide, Hahn and Wiker trace the origins of the modern historical-critical method deep into the Middle Ages and the Renaissance "showing the deliberate Erastian project of subjecting the Bible and with it the Christian faith to the power of the State." (4)

Through painstaking research Hahn and Wiker clearly demonstrate that the historical-critical method is grounded in the philosophy of Averroes, the writings of Machiavelli and Marsilio of Padua among others, together with the political projects of Henry VIII, Thomas Hobbes, and John Locke, and the quest for an empire of science on the part of Descartes and Spinoza. 

The authors argue that nothing can be rightly understood about the historical-critical method and the politicization of Scripture if close attention is not paid to the great cosmological shift that occurred in the seventeenth century.  What the shift yielded was both a secular (anti-supernatural and wholly naturalistic or pagan) understanding of the universe, philosophy and scientific method and a secular-pagan understanding of man and politics:

"The two occur as part of one revolution because the shift in the meaning of nature includes human nature as well." (p. 257)

With respect to the work of modern scriptural scholars, the great shift means that in order to comprehend the assumptions and methods of their own craft they have to understand the history of the philosophy and science grounded in the cosmological shift. 

As a synopsis of the monumental philosophical and scientific shift and its' abominable effects on modern biblical scholarship and Christianity, Hahn and Wiker offer the following example from the highly influential nineteenth century scriptural scholar David Friedrich Strauss.  Strauss is almost invariably the first of the modern critiques studied in the typical survey course taken by students of Scripture in graduate school.   The key introductory chapter of Strauss's "Life of Jesus Christ Critically Examined" is entitled "Development of the Mythical Point of View."   In it Strauss declares,

"...matter-of-factly that an 'account is not historical,' and hence 'the matter related could not have taken place in the manner described,' wherein 'the narration is irreconcilable with the known and universal laws which govern the course of events.   Now according to these laws, agreeing with all just philosophical conceptions and all credible experience, the absolute cause never disturbs the chain of secondary causes by single arbitrary actions of interposition." (pp. 257-258)

In other words, miracles (i.e., creation ex nihilo, Christ's Resurrection) cannot happen.  For Strauss, the exegetical assumption that miracles are fictions is based on naturalistic philosophical-scientific assumptions.   

Underlying Strauss's assumptions is an entirely naturalistic (secular-pagan), self-generating machine-like cosmos, a mathematical-mechanical view of the evolving universe, an idol of defiant, rebellious mans' mind in continual antagonism to the supernatural Judeo-Christian cosmology.  

It was Descartes, Hobbes, and Spinoza who redefined nature so that it was ontologically mathematical and mechanical, thereby paving the way for the universe to be entirely law-governed, self-contained (closed to the supernatural), self-sustaining, mechanical and evolutionary.  This view necessitated that the active, living, creating, and redeeming Holy God of Old and New Testament be redefined as a deistic god that created matter, mechanical mechanisms and formative evolutionary processes that over time allows things to make themselves,  or a divine evolutionary force (pantheism) within nature, or be simply rejected by the more radical of the radical Enlightenment. (pp. 272-273 &544)

In the "new pagan" god-man centered cosmology, the gap between the Mind of God and the mind of man, and the supernatural and natural were closed.  Thereafter, the exalted mind of the god-man and the content of the mathematical-mechanical universe defined what method was appropriate to its illumination:

"If the universe is fundamentally mathematical and mechanical, then of course the method of illumination must be mathematical and mechanical. " (p. 545)

In the god- man centered universe, the redefined God's wisdom does not exceed man's wisdom.  This being so, Unitarianism, liberal Protestant theology, Roman Catholic Teilhardism, evolutionary theism, Hugh Ross's vastly popular progressive creationism, and all other forms of evolutionary Christianity as well as New Age pantheism are the products of the exalted wisdom of god-men who adopted a man-centered universe entirely in accord with their own capacities.

The approach to the Word of God followed suit, meaning that an evolutionary modernist understanding completely defines the 'new' approach to the interpretative deconstruction of the Bible:

"Since miracles had been excised from nature, they had to be removed from the text.  Since nature was entirely defined by mathematics, knowledge of mathematical-mechanical laws displaced prophecy, and so prophecy had to be removed from the text.  In fact, since there was, with pantheism, assumed to be an identity of the logos of nature with the Logos of God, scientists who studied the logos of nature provided the highest revelation possible, thereby demoting the revelation contained in the Bible as at best puerile.  All that was left, so it seemed, was the moral message of the text, and the focus on the Bible as merely moral reinforced its politicization." (p. 544)

All that is left is a desacralized book of moral messages for evolutionary modernist Christian intellectuals such as columnist Ross Douthat, leading Richard Dawkins to ridicule him for bracketing "Biblical fundamentalists" with atheists and accusing both of making the same mistake,

"...of thinking that the correct way to read the Bible is literally, as do Ken Ham or Al Mohler." (Ross Douthat doesn't understand atheism, Richard Dawkins, Oct. 5, 2011, whyevolutionistrue.com)
 
Douthat criticizes New Atheism said Dawkins, for thinking that we go after only the fundamentalist version of religion while "ignoring the sophisticated versions propounded by sophisticated theologians like John Haught and sophisticated intellectuals like himself" who see much of the Bible, particularly the Genesis account as metaphor.  Douthat makes this clear in a New York Times article:
 
"It was a peculiar spectacle, to put it mildly: An atheist [Coyne] attacking a traditionalist believer [Shea] for not reading Genesis literally. On the merits, Coyne is of course quite correct that some of the details of the Genesis story seem to contradict what science and archaeology suggest about human origins. (For instance, the claim that Adam and Eve were formed from the dust of the ground and a human rib, respectively, not from millennia upon millennia of evolution, the suggestion that they lived in a garden near the Tigris and the Euphrates, not a hunter-gatherer community in Africa, and  well, you get the idea.) But then again some of the details of the Genesis story seem to contradict one another as well, in ways that should inspire even a reader who knows nothing about the controversies surrounding evolution to suspect that what he's reading isn't intended as a literal and complete natural history of the human race." (Why Atheists Need Fundamentalists, Douthat, Oct. 4, 2011, New York Times)
 
Dawkins zeros in on the contradictions in Douthats' argument, pointing out that if Ken Ham, Dr. Albert Mohler, and other faithful believers, or 'fundamentalists' as Douthat labels them did not take the,
 
"...stories pretty literally, including the tales of Noah and the flood, the Genesis stories, the tale of Adam and Eve and their Original Sin, and, of course, the whole Jesus mythology (then) we'd have no creationism in America, and the story of Jesus would be a convenient fairy tale, like that of Santa Claus, rather than an object of universal veneration." (ibid)
 
Exposing Douthats' double-mindedness, Dawkins argues that while much of the Bible is dismissively relegated to the category of fanciful metaphor by Douthat,

"I'm sure that when he goes to Mass each week he recites the Nicene Creed, affirming his belief in these truths:
 
" Jesus is the son of God – God is the creator of heaven and earth – Jesus was the product of a virgin birth – The crucified Jesus was resurrected – Jesus will come again to judge us all – Our sins will be remitted through baptism – There's an afterlife for the good folks."

 
Dawkins then asks,
 
"Tell me, Mr. Douthat: are those allegories, too? When you mouth them in Church each week, are you saying what you really believe? If not, why do you call yourself a Catholic?" (ibid)

Douthats' embarrassing peccadillo exemplifies that of increasing numbers of modernist theologians, intellectuals and Christians throughout the whole body of the church who waver between serving the Lord and serving Baal:

"And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word."  1 Kings 18:21

In 1 Thess. 2:13 the Apostle Paul summarizes and clarifies the issue at hand, which is whether the Revealed Word of God is received by the Christian Church as the word of "enlightened" men or "for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe."  

 “Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge?....Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation?  Tell me, if you understand."  Job 38: 2-4

Dear reader, who do you place your faith in?   Is it in pride-inflated foolish modernists who with their scissors have cut apart the Bible and with their words without knowledge and vain pretensions set themselves up against the knowledge of our Lord?  They are the blind leading the blind into hell.  Or is it in the Lord Whose Word is Truth, even as He Himself is Truth, our Lord and Savior Who, 

"if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved?"  Romans 10:9

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Modern Barbarian God-Men

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

God-men Remake Mankind as Grotesque Androgynous Bio-Machines

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Demonic Darkness: America's Invisible Wave of Evil

Today many intellectuals and modern theologians slavishly follow after whatever passes for current trends in scientific and evolutionary theory, thus they believe the Genesis account ex nihilo, the supernatural, the fall, miracles, the Resurrection of Christ, hell, angels, demons and possession are out dated concepts.  Despite this, in 1967 Mortimer J. Adler, the guiding genius behind The Encyclopedia Britannica and Great Books of the Western World, predicted that belief in a spiritual reality would not only return but be considered orthodox science.  His prediction has come true, for today, Eastern-oriented occult pantheism (evolutionary New Age cosmic humanism (1) and esoteric neo-pagan materialism (evolutionary secular humanism) have nearly merged, making it difficult to distinguish one from the other.

Over the past three hundred years, the Western Christian tradition has slowly but steadily been eclipsed, first by scientific evolutionary materialism, now by Eastern-oriented scientific cosmic humanism which has infused and spiritualized the former, transforming it into an agency for the transmission of the naturalistic structure of the evolving universe of matter and psychic energy and other revelations from fallen angels and evil spirits.  This legion of disembodied beings call themselves everything from Transcended Masters to Maitreya, Semjase, the Council of Nine, Space Brothers and ancient Ennead of Egypt together with evil spirits going by such names as god, christ and jesus.  All of this has led Martin Lloyd-Jones to declare:

"The modern world, and especially the history of the present century, can only be understood in terms of the unusual activity of the devil and the "principalities and powers" of darkness...In a world of collapsing institutions, moral chaos, and increasing violence, never was it more important to trace the hand of the "prince of the power of the air."  If we cannot discern the chief cause of our ills, how can we hope to cure them?"  The Christian Warfare

In the space of a few short decades occult New Age spirituality (2) has made profound inroads. Its upsurge manifests itself in the form of everything from obsession with the paranormal, channeling cults, ghost-hunting, necromancy, light-bearers, spirit guides (3), goddess worship, shamanism, transcendental meditation and visualization (4), 'new' contemplative or centering prayer (5), the enneagram (6), labyrinth walking (7), yoga (8), Wicca (9), revitalized Norse paganism, transformational festivals (10), vampires (11), Ouija boards (12), poltergeists (13), the proliferation of 'new' religions and Lucifer as the Angel of Light:

"Medium and psychic Sylvia Browne admits there are dark entities that choose from the beginning to be this way, but she denies the devil. According to Browne, God sent Lucifer down to watch over people when God saw they had chosen "the dark side." According to Browne, "Lucifer is neither dark nor fallen. He wasn't rejected by God or banished from the light."  (The Dark Side: Beyond Good and Evil, Marcia Montenegro, Christian Answers for the New Age)

The hugely popular "new" contemplative or centering prayer (5) is a hybrid drawn from prayer practices of the Christian contemplative heritage fused with Eastern mysticism. The hybrid version, 

"...originated in St Joseph's Abbey, a Trappist monastery in Spencer, Massachusetts. During the twenty years (1961-1981) when Keating was abbot, St Joseph's held dialogues with Buddhist and Hindu representatives, and a Zen master gave a week-long retreat to the monks. A former Trappist monk who had become a Transcendental Meditation teacher also gave a session to the monks. ....Centering prayer is essentially a form of self-hypnosis. It makes use of a "mantra," a word repeated over and over to focus the mind while striving by one's will to go deep within oneself. The effects are a hypnotic-like state..." (The Danger of Centering Prayer, Rev. John D. Dreher, Catholic Education Resource Center) 

In the foreword to Philip St. Romains book, "Kundalini Energy and Christian Spirituality," Keating acknowledges that kundalini energy is the focus of the "new" Christian contemplative prayer. He states:

"Since this energy [kundalini] is also at work today in numerous persons who are devoting themselves to contemplative prayer, this book is an important contribution to the renewal of the Christian contemplative tradition. It will be a great consolation to those who have experienced physical symptoms arising from the awakening of kundalini in the course of their spiritual journey ... Most spiritual disciplines world-wide insist on some kind of serious discipline before techniques of awakening kundalini are communicated. In Christian tradition ... the regular practice of the stages of Christian prayer ... contemplation are the essential disciplines..."  (Kundalini Energy (Serpent Power) Same as Contemplative Silence, lighthousetrailsresearch)   

Psychical researcher J.D. Pearce-Higgins, vice chairman of the Churches Fellowship for Psychical and Spiritual Studies (Great Britain) writes of the hazards of Ouija board (11) use and automatic writing:

"These apparently simple methods of attempting contact...are extremely dangerous. (People will become) obsessed or possessed by some...damaging spirit who has got control of them and won't let go.  They are compelled to go on with automatic writing---at all hours of day and night (and) may begin to hear...voices telling them to do stupid and filthy things; they are no longer master in the house of their own minds and souls."  (The Coming Darkness, John Ankerberg & John Weldon, pp. 129-130)

From England to Australia and New Zealand, from South America to E. Europe, Canada and the United States, occult  spirituality is quickly becoming the West’s dominant orthodoxy, leading America’s mainstream media to report:

Neopaganism Growing Quickly: Numbers Roughly Double Every 18 Months in United States, Canada, and Europe.” (Denver Post, June 26, 2008; How Evil Works, David Kupelian, p. 115)

Sorcery Sells, and the Young are Buying” Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 10, 2007 (ibid)

“Wicca is Believed to be One of the Fastest-Growing Religions Among High School and College Students” National Public Radio, May 13, 2004 (ibid)

In his book, “America’s Schools: The Battleground for Freedom,” Allen Quist warns:

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

Today millions of Westerners are risking everything to seek the occult world and its' alluring power.  In “One or Two?" Dr. Peter Jones, Director of truthXchange and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary California writes that a wide variety of occult spirituality is now available.  There is something for everyone:

"A Course in Miracles, Alchemy, American Indian Quest, Ancient Mythology, Arkashic Record, Aryuvedic Medicine, Astrology, Bahai'i Unity, Buddhism, Buddhist/Christian Dialogue, Chakras, Channeling, Christian Monastic Mysticism, Crystals, Divination, Dream work, Druidism, Eastern Meditation, Eckankar (soul travel), Ecofeminism, Enneagram, EST, Feng Shui, Gnosticism (ancient and modern), Goddess worship, Hare Krishna, Hermeticism, Higher Self, Hinduism, Holism, Human Potential Movement, Hypnosis, I Ching, Iridology, Jungian Transpersonal Psychology, Kabbalah, Karma, Mandalas, Mantras, Mind-altering drugs, Parapsychology, Past Life Regressions, Reiki, Re-incarnation, Religious syncretism, Rolfing, Sacred Technologies, Santeria, Scientology, Shamanism, Sufism, T'ai Chi, Tantrism, Tarot Cards, Teilhardism, Therapeutic Touch, Tikkun, Transcendental Meditation, Ufology, Urantia Book, Visualization, Wicca, Yoga, Zen."  (pp. 40-41)

It is well documented that perversions, murder, possession and other evils, including human sacrifice, occur in Western witchcraft, Satanism and Eastern mysticism (e.g., tantric yoga) as well as pagan and pantheist occult religion in general.  In his "Occultism, Witchcraft and Cultural Fashions," the noted cultural anthropologist Mircea Eliade of the University of Chicago refers to the interconnections between European witchcraft and Hindu Tantric yoga.  He argues that

"even a rapid perusal of the Hindu and Tibetan documents" reveals the connection: "As a matter of fact, all the features associated with European witches are---with the exception of Satan and the Sabbath---claimed also by Indo-Tibetan yogis and magicians.  They too are supposed to fly through the air, render themselves invisible, kill at a distance, master demons and ghosts, and so on.  Moreover, some of (them) boast that they break all the religious taboos and social rules; that they practice human sacrifice, cannibalism, and all manner of orgies, including incestuous intercourse, and that they eat excrement, nauseating animals, and devour human corpses.  In other words, they proudly claim all the crimes and horrible ceremonies cited ad nauseum in the western European witch trials."  (Psychic Forces, Chapter 22, "The Occult History of Parapsychology," Clifford Wilson and John Weldon, pp. 341-49)

The very popular Tantra Kundalini yoga is based on the occultic chakra system which teaches that a universal evolutionary energy (Kundalini Shakti, the Supreme Power; serpent power) coiled at the base of the spine flows through human beings and through all of creation, uniting everything above and everything below, thus acknowledging divinity in all things and all people. Through strenuous yoga and other occult techniques outlined in ancient and modern texts, Kundalini Shakti uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body.  During so-called kundalini arousal, which may last for months or even years, protracted insanity and/or demonization must be endured.  In the words of power yogi Muktananda:

"I was assailed by all sorts of perverse and defiling emotions....my breathing (became) disturbed...my abdomen would swell with air...my mind was sick with fear (my) thoughts became confused, meaningless.   My limbs and body got hotter and hotter....Then I felt a searing pain...I wanted to run away, but my legs were locked tight in the lotus posture.....Then...a moonlike sphere...came floating in (it) struck against my eyes and...passed inside me...I was terrified (but) still locked in the lotus posture (with) my head forced down and glued to the ground....I started to make a sound like a camel, which alternated with the roaring of a tiger (I went) completely insane (and jumped and hopped) like a frog (while) my limbs (shook) violently. (Later) I learned that this was a Hatha Yoga process effected by the Goddess Kundalini in order for Her to move up through the spinal column into the sahasrana (upper psychic center.)"  (Play of Consciousness, Swami Muktananda, pp. 75-81, 84-85, 88-89)  

With continued practice, surrender, and preparation, one day the kundalini current will reach full voltage and there will no longer be 'anybody home' but an unholy spirit residing in an empty shell of a body:

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity.  The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)."   Finally it happened---explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated.  Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels."   "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..."   (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45) 

Like "new" contemplative prayer and other occultisms, yoga does not liberate; it enslaves and binds.  It does not enlighten but brings confusion and insanity.  It makes people immune to redemption through Christ,

"Yoga does not open the door for the Holy Spirit, but for spiritist spirits."  (Occult ABC: Exposing Occult Practices and Ideologies, Kurt E. Koch, p. 259)

Occult (Demonic) Bondage

According to Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian and minister with extensive personal experience in counseling and delivering thousands of people held in occult bondage, modern theologians who follow current scientific trends would be shocked by how many of the so-called scientists and intellectuals they slavishly follow have turned to occultism and spiritism (sorcery) and become demonized as a result.  Be they scientist or otherwise, all who trespass into Satan's domain by committing sins of sorcery will be harassed by the powers of darkness, irrespective of whether they take the step consciously or unconsciously.   Every sin of sorcery (occultism) cuts a person off from the Holy God and opens the door to demonic bondage.  Any person who serves the devil (occult), will receive the devil's wages (Exod. 7:11-12; Lev. 19: 26, 32; Zech. 12:2; Mal. 3:5; Acts 8:16; Acts 16:16; 1 Sam. 28; 2 Chron. 10:13-14; Isaiah 2:6; 8:19; Jer. 27:9, 10; Gal. 5:20; 2 Tim. 3:8; Rev. 21:8; Rev. 22:15).   Thus when a person abandons the Holy Triune God through sins of sorcery, he abandons his inner person (mind, will, conscience) at the same time as seen in relation to psychological disturbances having the following predominant characteristics:

(1) Warped, distorted character: hard-edged egoism; uncongenial, dark nature.

(2) Extreme passions: hard-edged egoism, abnormal sexuality (sodomy, lesbianism, sadomasochism, bestiality, pedophilia, pederasty, zoophiles); violent temper, belligerence; tendencies to addiction; meanness and kleptomania; compulsive lying.

(3) Emotional disturbances; compulsive thoughts of murder and suicide, anxiety states.

(4) Possession with destructive urges, fits of mania; tendency to violent acts and crime

(5) Insanity.

(6) Bigoted attitude against Christ and God; conscious atheism; simulated piety; indifference to God’s word and to prayer; blasphemous thoughts; religious delusions.

The ultimate goal of fallen angels and evil spirits is degradation and desecration of mans' inner person, the spiritual part of him created in the image of the Holy God. So what are systematically defaced and desecrated are the mind, will, conscience and sense of good and evil. 

Demonic Darkness: America’s Invisible Wave of Evil

Carl A. Raschke is Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver specializing in Continental philosophy and the philosophy and theory of religion.  He is also America’s leading authority on subcultures of demonic darkness.  In his fully-documented work, “Painted Black” he puts together a terrifying puzzle to reveal the chilling facts and cases behind an invisible wave of evil working through the minds of children and adults and subsequently sweeping over and across our nation outwardly manifest in an alarming epidemic of violence and madness that Western therapeutic science explains away as hallucinations, genetic influences and chemical disturbances.   Such a posture, said Raschke, hinges on the most incredible delusion that the "symbol of the Devil does not at all mean what the symbol of the Devil has always meant…” (Painted Black, p.404).

According to Rashcke, demonic bondage does not always manifest itself in a will to do evil:

Many of today’s young satanists (are characterized) by a metaphysics of exhaustion and despair.  A culture of despair becomes ever easier pickings for the…child pornographers (and the) professional (satanic) terrorists themselves.  Satanism has already yielded a climate of fear in middle-class quarters where fear had never flourished before.” (p. 406)

A culture of “exhaustion and despair” also welcomes demonized perverse 'sex-educators' (14) and professional satanic terrorists like the 9/11 murderers and ISIS.

Where occult bondage manifests itself in a will to do evil it is seen in the recent Dark Knight movie murders (15) and in the following chilling account:

In a chilling 911 call, Texas teen Jake Evans spent 20 minutes calmly recounting how he shot and killed his mother and sister, calling himself “evil.” (Texas Teen Tells 911 It Was Weird to Kill His Mother and Sister, abcnews, Oct. 5, 2012)

It’s weird,” an even-voiced Evans told the 911 dispatcher. “I wasn’t even really angry with them. It just kind of happened. I’ve been kind of planning on killing for a while now.”  “I’ll never forget this. My sister, she came down the stairs and she was screaming and I was telling her that I’m sorry but to just hold still–that, you know, I was just going to make it go away,” he said. “But she just kept on freaking out, but finally she fell down, and I got her in the head about, probably, three times.” “Just to let you know, I hate the feeling of killing someone. I’m going to be messed up,” he told the operator." “I’m really worried about nightmares and stuff like that. Are there any type of medications for that and stuff?”

America's secularized culture is a spiritual vacuum into which innumerable dark psychic forces have flooded.  Most of the present destructive generation is sick, lawless, narcissistic, and undisciplined.   America, the dying leader of the world, bleeds from thousands of self-inflicted wounds as she marches toward her own destruction to the beat of unseen drummers.  

The clearest answer to the evil conditions of our times is found in the Bible.   We are living in the Last Days.  The final pages of history are now being read.  Our time,

"...can only be understood aright in the light of the prophetic word.  Satan is mobilizing all his forces for an all-out attack.  The demonic world has entered the final lap....To fail, therefore, to take our stand at the foot of the cross, to fail to build our house upon the Rock, is to be swept away by the turmoil of the End-Times.  We are living in days of a demonic nature!"  (Demonology Past and Present, Kurt E. Koch, p. 37)

Kundalini Shakti & the 'New' Contemplative/Centering Prayer

A fast-moving contemplative movement of Christian Centering Prayer is quietly, almost secretly reviving,

"... religious life and faith in society. Here in the land of “the spiritual, but not religious,” and growing numbers of “Nones,” or non-church affiliated, a new form of evangelization is appearing. Centering Prayer is a practice of silent prayer that is a stripped-to-essentials form of Christian monastic contemplation." (Centering Prayer: Contemplative practice for the 21st century, Sidney Callahan, American Magazine,  Dec 3 2014 )  

In what appears to be a sweeping phenomenon, Christian leaders are embracing practices and a new spirituality that "borrows from Eastern mysticism and New Age philosophy."  The changes are taking place worldwide and involve "many of the most popular evangelical leaders including Rick Warren, Brian McLaren, Richard Foster, Tony Campolo, and Eugene Peterson."  (Evangelical Leaders Promote New Age and Eastern Spiritual Practice, Lighthouse Trails) 

Ruth Haley Barton, formerly of Willow Creek and trained at the contemplative Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation teaches contemplative prayer through her Transforming Center:

"Barton co-authored with John Ortberg 'Ordinary Day with Jesus,' which clearly instructs readers in mystical prayer practices."  And as if that were not enough to show Ortberg's New Age Sympathies, "he will be speaking this year at the National Pastor's Convention where labyrinths, contemplative prayer...and yoga workshops will take place." (ibid) 

Moreover, Sue Monk Kidd, once a conservative Baptist,

"began practicing contemplative prayer and has now become a major promoter of the practice and of feminine spirituality." (ibid) 

While standing onstage with other keynote speakers at the Passion 2012 conference Beth Moore encouraged the audience to:

 "... pause and be still, and ask Jesus to speak His word to us."   Attended by over 42,000 college age youth, "Francis Chan, Louie Giglio and John Piper, along with thousands of youth (participated) in the mystical practice of contemplative or 'listening prayer' at Moore's behest, and this despite the fact that Scripture provides no instruction or any illustration for engaging in such a 'spiritual' activity."  (Be Still: Contemplative or Listening Prayer & Psalm 46:10, Herescope, Sept. 23, 2012) 

Energizing the enthusiastic endorsement of  "new" contemplative prayer is a spirit of naivety that simply endorses without discernment and unwisely propagates this practice.   

So just what is contemplative prayer?

Contemplative Prayer: Traditional & New Age Version

The contemplative tradition originated with some of the early desert Fathers.  Over the centuries it has been variously called Lectio Divina, the Prayer of Faith, Prayer of the Heart, Prayer of Simplicity, Prayer of Simple Regard, Active Recollection, Active Quiet and Acquired Contemplation.

St. Teresa defines Christian contemplative prayer as:

".....nothing else than a close sharing between friends; it means taking time frequently to be alone with him who we know loves us.' Contemplative prayer seeks him 'whom my soul loves'. It is Jesus, and in him, the Father. We seek him, because to desire him is always the beginning of love, and we seek him in that pure faith which causes us to be born of him and to live in him. In this inner prayer we can still meditate, but our attention is fixed on the Lord himself. (The Catechism of the Catholic Church) 

The New Age contemplative or centering prayer is a hybrid drawn from prayer practices of the Christian contemplative heritage fused with Eastern mysticism.  The hybrid version, 

"...originated in St Joseph's Abbey, a Trappist monastery in Spencer, Massachusetts. During the twenty years (1961-1981) when Keating was abbot, St Joseph's held dialogues with Buddhist and Hindu representatives, and a Zen master gave a week-long retreat to the monks. A former Trappist monk who had become a Transcendental Meditation teacher also gave a session to the monks. ....Centering prayer is essentially a form of self-hypnosis. It makes use of a "mantra," a word repeated over and over to focus the mind while striving by one's will to go deep within oneself. The effects are a hypnotic-like state: concentration upon one thing, disengagement from other stimuli, a high degree of openness to suggestion, a psychological and physiological condition that externally resembles sleep but in which consciousness is interiorized and the mind subject to suggestion."   (The Danger of Centering Prayer, Rev. John D. Dreher, Catholic Education Resource Center)  

Cistercian priest Thomas Keating, who has inspired many Christian leaders including Brennan Manning and Quaker mystic Richard Foster who favorably quotes the heavily demonized Carl Jung in the second chapter of his book, "Celebration of Discipline,"  is known as a 'living Spiritual Teacher' or Master of the 'new' contemplative prayer. Terms like 'spiritual master' actually come straight out of Eastern mysticism and are tantamount to 'guru.'

In the foreword to Philip St. Romain's book, "Kundalini Energy and Christian Spirituality," Keating even acknowledges that kundalini energy (aka, Zoe, seething power of Lucifer, the Force, serpent power) is the focus of the "new" Christian contemplative prayer. He states:

"Since this energy [kundalini] is also at work today in numerous persons who are devoting themselves to contemplative prayer, this book is an important contribution to the renewal of the Christian contemplative tradition. It will be a great consolation to those who have experienced physical symptoms arising from the awakening of kundalini in the course of their spiritual journey ... Most spiritual disciplines world-wide insist on some kind of serious discipline before techniques of awakening kundalini are communicated. In Christian tradition ... the regular practice of the stages of Christian prayer ... contemplation are the essential disciplines.."  (Kundalini Energy (Serpent Power) Same as Contemplative Silence, lighthousetrailsresearch) 

What is Kundalini Shakti (Energy)? 

Kundalini is 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)

It is a serpent goddess,

"....who lies asleep at the base of the spine, coiled three and a half times around the first chakra."  (snakespirit.webs.com)

Kundalini is based on the occultic chakra system which teaches that a universal evolutionary energy (Kundalini Shakti, the Supreme Power; serpent power) coiled at the base of the spine flows through human beings and through all of creation, uniting everything above and everything below, thus acknowledging divinity in all things and all people. Through strenuous yoga and other occult techniques outlined in ancient and modern texts, Kundalini Shakti uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body, thus Keating explains that spiritual directors are needed to help guide the Christian contemplative because of the powerful and dangerous nature of kundalini.  He adds that "spiritual directors" may need to consult with "Eastern teachers in order to get a fuller understanding" because the awakening of kundalini causes the following symptoms:

1.Burning hot or ice cold streams moving up the spine.
2.Pains in varying locations throughout the body.
3. Vibrations, unease, or cramps in legs and other parts of body.
4.Fast pulse and increased metabolism.
5.Disturbance in the breathing–and/or heart function.
6. Sensitivity to sound, light, smell, and proximity of other people.
7.Mystical/religious experiences.
9. Parapsychological abilities.
10. Persistent anxiety or anxiety attacks, confusion
11. Insomnia, manic high spirits or deep depression. Energy loss.
12. Impaired concentration and memory.
13. Total isolation due to inability to communicate inner experiences out.
14. Experiences of possession and poltergeist phenomena

The Kundalini/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)

With continued practice, surrender, and preparation, one day the kundalini current will reach full voltage and there will no longer be 'anybody home' but an unholy spirit residing in an empty shell of a body:

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity.  The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)."   Finally it happened---Explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated.  Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels."   "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..."   (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45) 

"You will be like God," Genesis 3:5

 In common with Carl Jung's transpersonal and depth psychology, occult New Age, Mind Science, New Thought, the Alpha Course, Silva Method, Word of Faith, Positive Imaging, Visualization/Dreaming, tantric and other forms of yoga and the multi-million dollar best-sellers "A Course in Miracles" and "The Secret,"  the new contemplative prayer shares the idea that god and psychic power are within:

"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")

As the 'Christ' of the hugely popular "A Course in Miracles" the christ-within 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)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The god-force within who is the serpent power (horned god) worshipped by mankind from antiquity, Masonry's seething energies of Lucifer, the serpent power of Kundalini yoga, the Christ of the Course in Miracles, the Cosmic Spirit of the universe, Teilhard's Singularity and the Collective that 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

Eastern-oriented New Age contemplative/centering prayer is actually a dangerous occult psycho-spiritual technique that really does work:

"Using these techniques I have seen lights move in darkness, a bright yellow cross materialize out of thin air, and I've heard voices calling me from the darkness.  I'm not exaggerating.  I was not on drugs, medicated, drinking, or sleep deprived.  I definitely contacted something in the spirit realm.  But, it wasn't God."  (Centering Prayer, Matt Slick, CARM)

  Just as Slick had opened himself to contact with an evil spirit, so did a little girl:    

"A mother wrote to ask me for advice: In the Catholic school in (name of town), Sister has been using this (centering prayer and use of the Jesus Prayer) in the religion classes. My ten-year-old daughter took to it right away. This was about two-and-a-half years ago. The things she shared with me that Jesus had told her didn't appear to me to be imagination.....About six weeks ago, Kristy started having difficulty going to sleep. She didn't want to stay in her own room and would lie there afraid to close her eyes, until I would let her go into her sister's room and sleep with her. Finally she confided in me that she would see something scary if she closed her eyes. A few days ago, she confided that it laughed. Kristy had used the centering prayer on her own at bedtime for sometime before this fear started."  (The Danger of Centering Prayer, Rev. John D. Dreher, Catholic Education Resource Center)

Rev. Dreher concluded:

"The laughter is very characteristic of evil spirits. It would have taken personal contact and prayerful discernment to know for sure. From the description, I would suspect an evil spirit is harassing her. I would doubt that it has any serious hold on her, unless there was immoral behavior or a special vulnerability in her psychological state. I suspect that her use of centering prayer opened her to evil spirits and such harassments."

 Marcia Montenegro of Christian Answers for the New Age warns Christians away from 'new' contemplative prayer and advises them to be wary of any instruction that calls for them to:

1.Breathe a certain way before or during prayer
2.Maintain a certain posture or bodily position
3.Repeat a word or phrase, even if it's from the Bible, or use a word or phrase to stay "focused"
4.Go beyond thinking or thought
5.To turn inward in order to find or be with God
6.Be in silence in order to truly pray
7.Believe that CP is true prayer

Christian prayer should be taught as it is modeled in the Bible, particularly in the New Testament, such as Matthew 6:9:

Having now rebuked and condemned such false and meaningless prayer, Christ goes on to prescribe a short, neat form of His own to show us how we are to pray, and what we are to pray for,” Luther.

America's "New" Spiritually Pantheist Worldview

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ecclesiastes: Things Reckoned New & Scientific by Evolutionists & Sophisticated Theologians Are Not So

In a 2012 editorial, "The Genesis Problem," New Scientist editors admit that physicists have been fighting a rearguard action against the Big Bang theory for decades, largely because they believe it has theological overtones. After all, if you have an instant of creation, don't you need a creator?   Adding fuel to anti-Big Bang anxieties are sophisticated theologians eager to embrace and conform the Word of God to evolutionary science.  

Now however, if a "new" yet very ancient theory turns out to be true, the universe may not have started with a bang after all and Big Bang sophisticates from Pope Francis to Tim Keller, Francis Collins, Leonard Sweet and many others will be faced with ruin and disgrace.

In the new formulation, the universe was never a singularity, or an infinitely small and infinitely dense point of matter. In fact, the universe may have no beginning at all:

"Our theory suggests that the age of the universe could be infinite," said study co-author Saurya Das, a theoretical physicist at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada.  (Big Bang, Deflated? Universe May Have Had No Beginning, Yahoo US, March 2, 2015)

The idea that the evolving universe of matter and psychic energy (the Divine One Substance) has always existed is a common thread running through ancient Chaldea, Egypt, Greece, and Rome in the West to mystical pantheist philosophies in the East and Mormonism in America.

 Joseph Smith taught that matter (the One Substance) is eternal and the Mormon God Elohim had no power to create out of nothing. Elohim merely reorganized the already present elements of the One Substance (aka Void, Brahman, Quantum Void), which have no beginning or end and cannot be destroyed:

"Since Mormons believe that the elements are eternal, it follows that they deny the ex nihilo creation." (Encyclopedia of Mormonism 1:400).

Like a dog returning to its own vomit, modern evolutionary physicists are returning to the ancient Godless cosmogony espoused by Mystery Religion Babylon, mystical Cabbalism, Gnosticism, the Essenes, Egyptians, and other occult traditions and sciences.

For example, with the Egyptians' self-created Sun-God Ra, the eternally existing divine abyss or One Substance out of which he evolved is Nu — or Joseph Smith's primordial matter:

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

The godless cosmogony of Kabala teaches the gradual condensation or evolutionary progression of an eternally existing primal psychic substance (the One Substance) emanating into visible matter.  This is a fundamental, 
 
"... doctrine of the Cabala (and) is the ancient Semitic conception of the ‘primal ocean,’ known to the Babylonians as ‘Apsu’ and called by the Gnostics βύθος =  (Anz, ‘Die Frage nach dem Ursprung des Gnostizismus,’ p. 98).
 
 Like its’ Egyptian Hermetic counterpart, Kabala implies a process of emergent evolutionary transformation of one kind into another kind (macroevolution) from out of an eternally existing primal psychic substance:
 
“...the older Enoch book (gives) a fuller insight into the "Merkabah" and "Bereshit" lore of the ancients than the "Hekalot," which present but fragments, while the central figure of the Cabala, Meṭaṭron-Enoch, is seen in ch. lxx.-lxxi. in a process of transformation.” (Cabala, Jewish Encyclopedia) 

The Kabalah is the key to the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists.” (Occult Mason Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 626)

According to Helena Blavatsky, one of the key architects of Luciferian New Age pantheism, Kabalah derived,
 
“.... from the older secret doctrines concerning divine things and cosmogony, which were combined into a theology after the time of the captivity of the Jews in Babylon. All the works that fall under the esoteric category are termed Kabalistic.” (Blavatsky, Theosophical Glossary, p. 168)

The Chaldean occult science and pagan Mystery Religion was embraced by apostate Jews during their captivity in Babylon and delivered to subsequent generations of Mystery Religion initiates by word of mouth. According to Blavatsky, these initiates of the Chaldean tradition in the centuries before Christ were known as Tanaim:

 "The kabalist is a student of ‘secret science’, one who interprets the hidden meaning of the Scriptures with the help of the symbolical Kabala… The Tanaim were the first kabalists among the Jews; they appeared at Jerusalem about the beginning of the third century before the Christian era… This secret doctrine is identical with the Persian wisdom, or ‘magic’.” (Ibid. p.167)
 
The Essenes were also associated with the Kabala. The Jewish Encyclopedia describes the cabalistic practices of the Essenes, which were Judaized elements of Eastern mystical traditions:
 
So, too, were the Essenes familiar with the idea of the journey to heaven…and they were also masters of angelology. The practice of magic and incantation, the angelology and demonology, were borrowed from Babylonia, Persia, and Egypt; but these foreign elements were Judaized in the process, and took the form of the mystical adoration of the name of God and of speculations regarding the mysterious power of the Hebrew alphabet …, ‘the name of God creates and destroys worlds’, to become, finally, foundations of the philosophy of the ‘Sefer Yetzirah."  (Cabala, Jewish Encyclopedia)
 
According to Blavatsky the Essenes were pagan priests of the Greek goddess, Diana of Ephesus, where the Tanaim had established a college for instruction in the Chaldean mystery religion:
 
Essenes... had many Buddhistic ideas and practices; and it is noteworthy that the priests of the Great Mother at Ephesus, Diana-Bhavani with many breasts, were also denominated... It was at Ephesus where was the great College of the Essenes and all the lore the Tanaim had brought from the Chaldees... Essenes, believed in reincarnation.” (Theosophical Glossary, pp. 113-14; The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II, p. 111n)
 
Eventually Alexandria, Egypt became the epicenter of cosmological and pagan religious ideas as well as the intellectual meeting point between Greek Mystery Religion/Hermetic magic initiates and nature sages and guardians of Kabala.  After the fall of Jerusalem, Alexandria was the center from which occult pagan Jews would disguise their mystery tradition in Christian terminology and attempt to penetrate the fledgling Church with heresy. 

 One of the primary tactics employed by Cabbalist pagan Jews for this purpose is the same one employed by their modern evolutionary theist counterparts.   It involves the reduction of the Genesis account, particularly the first three books, to allegory and myth, a ploy that eliminates the physical Adam from which all people descended and the sin that he transferred to the rest of the human race. This strikes directly at the heart of the Gospel: the need for the ‘last Adam’ to provide for us an escape from the wrath of God against sin incurred by the first Adam.  In this way, not only is the work of Christ on the cross rendered superfluous, meaning the heart of the faith is ripped out, but God is made responsible for sin and evil. (1 Peter 3:18-22; 1 John 2:22)
 
Long ago, the teachings of some of the early Church Fathers regarding the apostasy toward the end of the church age predicted the reappearance of this evil tactic. The fathers categorized it a Gnostic pagan heresy.
 
In "Heresies 6.10" Hippolytus writes that the Gnostic pagan Simon Magus feigned faith and allegorized much of Scripture, especially Genesis, to support his evolutionary Hermetic and Gnostic occult pantheist teachings.   Church Fathers Ireneaus, Tertullian and Clement of Alexandria reveal that Gnostic cult leader Marcion rejected the Old Testament, taught that the God of the Old Testament and his prophets are evil, made God the author of sin and removed all references that Christ was Creator (John 1:1)   (Ireneaus, "Against Heresies 1.26, 5.1," Tertullian "Against Marcion 2.17," Clement of Alexandria, "Against Heresies 4.29)

Delusion

As it turns out, things reckoned new and scientific by deluded modern physicists and sophisticated theologians are not so; they were known and in use in ages past:

"That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one might say, "See this, it is new "? Already it has existed for ages Which were before us. There is no remembrance of earlier things..."  Ecclesiastes 1: 9-11

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Michael Ruse was professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada. He was the leading anti-creationist philosopher whose flawed arguments  convinced a biased judge to rule against the Arkansas ‘balanced treatment’ of creation and evolution in schools bill proposed in 1981. At the trial, he and other anti-creationists loftily dismissed the claim that evolution was an anti-god religion.  (creation.com)
 
The Technocratic worldview--scientism, evolutionary biology and evolutionary cosmogonies such as the Big Bang, a fraudulent metaphysical project---is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience, especially within the progressive liberal community. Anti-creation evolution not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines as well as occult New Age pantheist spirituality and 'Christian' theological permutations such as Teilhard de Chardin's Hindu-pantheist New Religion, Michael Dowd's God-less evolutionary 'Christian' paganism, and the progressive creationism popularized by astronomer Hugh Ross.

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

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

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

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

Madness Enforced by Tyranny in America's Emerging New World Order

On January 29, students attending Acalanes Union High School in Lafayette, Calif., reported that members of the Queer Straight Alliance (QSA) were allowed to take over all freshmen English classes in order to grill students about their personal beliefs and their parents’ personal beliefs on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues:

"...freshmen students were reportedly singled out---with tacit support of teachers---and humiliated if they didn't subscribe to politically correct views on gay and lesbian issues." (Report: Bay Area High School Let 'Queer Straight Alliance' Bully Students, Chriss Street, breitbart.com, Feb. 5, 2015)

For many years now MassResistance has been trying to warn Americans that the "gay" movement, backed by Obama and other treacherous power-hungry narcissists, is fighting  hard for “transgender rights” and “gender identity non-discrimination” laws because these laws are the entré  to fundamentally transforming society into a God-less, androgynous collective. Once these laws are in place,  we will no longer be allowed to distinguish between male and female, nor will parents be allowed to protect their children against ‘otherly-gendered’ sexual predators or even themselves from aggressive sexual advances.  (Lawsuit forces Boston Police Dept. to implement outrageous  transgender policy regarding arrests & searches, Massresistance.org)

Perversion induced madness enforced by tyranny results when some individuals try to force their disorders (compulsions, appetites, paranoia, greed, resentment, hate, envy) onto other people.  In the former Soviet Union where resentment-fueled perversion became the "new" norm, sodomy, pederasty, pedophilia, transgender and lesbianism were forced upon Eastern-Orthodox Russia by depraved Soviet sexologists:

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

"The Bolshevik Party did not merely scrap anti-homosexual tsarist laws. Sexologist Wilhelm Reich, in "The Sexual Revolution," described the intent of the Bolsheviks' political position. They felt it was necessary to tear down the walls that divided homosexuals--also known in Russia as "people of the moonlight--from the rest of society." (People of the Moonlight in the Dawn of Revolution, Leslie Feinberg, lesbian, gay, bi and trans pride series workers.org)

"The revolutionaries tried to examine sexuality and gender as they did all social and economic relations--through a scientific lens...." "Soviet Russia was by far the most significant power since the French Revolution to decriminalize male same-sex relations, while Britain and Weimar Germany continued to prosecute homosexuals. Soviet health authorities courted the left-leaning sex reform movement headed by Berlin sexologist and homosexual rights campaigner Magnus Hirschfeld."  (ibid)

"In a 1929 discussion about 'transvestites' and the 'intermediate sex' conducted by the Expert Medical Council of the  Commissariat of Health, women of the 'masculinized type' (cross-dressing army commanders, for example) were considered with fascination and indulgence." ("1920s Soviet Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals, Leslie Feinberg, Workers World News Service, Aug. 18, 2004)

The Soviet Union, heralded as a scientifically engineered 'worker's paradise' and by Western and American Progressive Socialists as 'the mother country' was nothing more than a modern day reprisal of Sodom and Gomorrah where the genitally obsessed were seduced by promises of 'free love.' What was 'free love'? In his well-researched expose of Communism, The Naked Communist, author W. Cleon Skousen reveals that 'free love' was made possible when young wives, sisters, daughters, and nieces  were declared the property of the pagan god-state. Anarchists were given control of the sex-slaves and they  issued 'usage' licenses to privileged 'workers.' In other words, females were forcibly dominated and violated and this was called 'free love.' Skousen quotes a Communist official who says:

"There is no such thing as a woman being violated by a man; he who says that a violation is wrong denies the October Communist Revolution. To defend a violated woman is to reveal oneself as a bourgeois and a partisan of private property." (The Naked Communist, Skousen, p. 73)

In the preceding statements, we can clearly see the depraved basis for today’s politically correct notions of hate crime, speech codes, equality, tolerance, inclusion, sensitivity training, emerging genders, alternative lifestyles, prostitute and pedo-chic clothing for females and young girls, and the "politically correct" forced-feeding of polymorphous perversion to American school children enforced by thought and speech control commissars:

“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

Natan Sharansky, a dissident in the former Soviet Union describes existence in the former Soviet Union as madness enforced by tyranny where,

“…there were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately.” Under the terrorist-tactics of hate crime laws, speech codes, and other thought-control tactics, everyone became double thinkers. To outside observers notes Sharansky, double thinkers appear as true believers: “everybody says the same thing, everybody votes the same way, everybody speaks with passion.” But this is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth, of discriminating between good and evil, truth and lie, normal and abnormal. These people, he noted, “live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime  demands loyalty right from childhood, many don’t even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves.” But when a “fear society disappears or becomes  weak, people suddenly start saying what they feel,” Sharansky commented, and “It’s such a big relief.”  (The Power of Freedom, The  American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the “town square test.” In this test, if you,

“…can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society” even though that society may not be just. However, if you are “punished for your views you live in a fear society….In such societies there are always three types of population: True believers, who accept the ideology…dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts.."

To get an inkling of what that strait-jacket of madness was like let us imagine that pathologically twisted color-blind people have managed to seize absolute control of our country and have forbidden Americans from judging between the colors yellow and purple.  Terroristic bully-boys or enforcers of "correct color" armed with the force of broken law patrol farmers markets, personal gardens, grocery stores, restaurants and clothing stores enforcing strict adherence to correct color codes while scrutinizing faces for possible signs of politically incorrect ‘thought’  indicative of discrimination or judgment between yellow and purple.  Of course the bully-boys are not color-blind themselves but because they too are pathologically twisted they receive sadistic pleasure from psychologically bullying, terrorizing, physically abusing and dominating other people.

Measured by Sharanskys’ town-square test we can see that America and Western Europe are rapidly descending into a fear-based madhouse where dissent (incorrect thought) against abortion, evolution, any or all of the ‘gay’ agenda, decadence festivals, illegal immigration, the sexualization of our children, the imposition of shariah, and socialistic ‘healthcare’ brings immediate demonization.  You may be heavily fined, declared insane, lose your job, your business, your home and even your children.

"Life has no rules." EST's Werner Erhard

In an address to the 10th Annual Freedom 21 Conference (10/16/09) Tom DeWeese tried to warn Americans that,

“….we are witnessing an all-out drive to impose thought control that seeks to ban the ability — the right — to think or speak for one’s self.  Thinking is becoming a crime.”    (Globally Acceptable Truth and the Crime of Thinking, Tom DeWeese)

A growing danger that a morally depraved, willfully ignorant, entertainment-glutted people will not heed.  Caught up as they are in gratification of ‘self’ they do not care to hear things that disturb them, that make them feel ‘bad’ or guilty:

"None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the rest love not freedom, but license, which never hath more scope than under tyrants." John Milton (1608-1674) English Poet, Scholar, Writer, Patriot

We cannot understand the rapid disintegration of America's humanized Christian Church together with the seething hatred of Jesus Christ, the treachery of our narcissistic power-grabbing ruling class and the pathological lying, obscenity, perversity, blasphemy, lawlessness, the subversion and perversion of youth and other evils so obviously endemic here in America and throughout the West unless we return to the Biblical view of man:

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

No concept gives "deeper insight into the enigma that is man" than original sin. Evil is not just a "bad dream," warned Richard Weaver, author of "Ideas Have Consequences." Evil is not "an accident of history," or the "creation of a few antisocial men." It is a "subtle, protean force," and original sin is a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing," (ibid)   

Man is not born good.  Nor is he or she 'evolving' to some higher, more godlike spiritual state. The ugly truth is that all men are born terrible-willed hedonists, says Dr. Terry G. Shaw:

"To understand...principles of human behavior...we must first begin by accepting (that) all humans are born hedonists (aka narcissists) and have an intrinsic need to seek pleasure, avoid pain, and engage in those activities that best accomplish both with the least amount of effort." (Born Liberal Raised Right, Reb Bradley, p.19)

The architects of our nation were men who did not shy away from the ugly truth about man's Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde nature, which meant that if the American experiment in national self-government was to succeed, then as the Founders strongly advised, all children would need to be trained against their natural self-centered inclinations from birth:

"Since private and public Vices, are in Reality...connected (it is necessary) that the Utmost Pains be taken by the Public, to have the Principle of Virtue early inculcated on the minds of...children, and the moral Sense kept alive...For no people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued when knowledge is diffused and Virtue preserved. On the contrary, when People are universally ignorant and debauched...they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign invaders." (Our Sacred Honor, Bennett, p. 26)

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

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

But when people are universally ignorant, corrupt and vicious:

“….they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”   Samuel Adams

And then:

“… dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Scientifically Demonstrable Revelations

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

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

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

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

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

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

  Occult Scientism Undergirds Scientific "Revelations"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Green Economics

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

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

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

Green Law 

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

Green Religion 

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

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

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

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

Green URI

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

They endeavor to become like God but shall instead,

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