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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Psychopathy: What Is It?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Today, like most of our financial, defense, educational, media, music and other cultural and mind-shaping institutions our government is in the hands of amoral progressive liberals, the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from,

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

Wiker writes that as far back as the Renaissance the strong impulse to throw off the restraints of the personal God and Christianity was already at work in certain Churchmen and intellectuals, hence their eventual embrace of materialism (naturalism):

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Meyer concludes that amoral Liberals are,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Progressive Liberalism is Insanity

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

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

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

 Writing in agreement, John Hallowell argued,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Falling Stars, Damnable Heresy, and the Spirit of Evolution

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Falling Stars and Damnable Heresy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Pouring more contempt on them he asked,

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

 Concerning Matthew 19:5:

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

 And concerning Cor. 15:21-22:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Fall of Western and American Society

“Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18

"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 "Against the Heathen," early Church Father Athanasius briefly outlines the predictable pattern of man’s fall from the time of Adam to our own.  Because man is naturally self-centered and pleasure-seeking, his fall begins with pride and haughtiness resulting in idolatry (preference for self rather than God and brethren), rebellion against authority and the casting off of moral restraints and sexual ethics eventuating in barbarism and nature and/or state worship.

It was a haughty, rebellious, willful spirit that led the people of Noah’s day to make light of the unchanging higher things of God, to criticize, ridicule and scoff God and everything true, good, natural and real away. Deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began seeking in preference things in the worldly or natural dimension. Thus they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher things.

 The pattern outlined by Athanasius is similar to the one delineated by Benjamin Wiker in his book,“Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Worship.”  Wiker writes that as far back as the Renaissance the strong impulse to throw off the restraints of God and Christianity was already at work in certain Churchmen and intellectuals, hence their eventual embrace of materialism (naturalism):

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

 Wiker painstakingly traces the development of what he defines as contemporary secular liberalism (also science-magic and evolution or neo-pantheist Modernism and its primary doctrine evolution) to its roots, thereby revealing that the liberals in ascendancy in America today are,

"....the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from the beginning has been characterized by a desire to be free from the burden of Christianity...As a rebellion against Christianity, its negative goal defined its positive form: the desire to remove the church and replace it with the state gave liberalism its structure, beliefs, and goals." (ibid)

So from the start, the desire to be liberated from God and Christianity has been a war against God as Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto makes clear in his poem, "The Pale Maiden" when he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:

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

Our rebellion is a satanic revolt against God, said Marx’s anarchist comrade Bakunin:

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

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

The Satanic revolt, like authentic Christian faith, is a movement of spirit having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of lies, heresy and envy, the author of blasphemy and rebellion, and the revelator of secrets.

Satanic revolt is war against the Holy Trinity which in Bakunin's words is the "cursed and fatal principle of authority." Thus it proclaims the reign of nothingness (nihilist materialism) though nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of evil personified....the dark Lord of this world.

The sentiment of the revolt is Satanic pride:

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

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

 Just as it was a haughty, rebellious, willful spirit that led the antediluvians of Noah’s day to make light of the unchanging higher things of God, to criticize, ridicule and scoff God and everything true, good, natural and real away, so it is the case with modern rebels against God.  Where antediluvians deliberately disregarded what they knew to be true and began seeking in preference things in the worldly or natural dimension, so too have moderns. Thus they, antediluvians and moderns, fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher things.

Writing at the time of the collapse of the Roman Empire, St. Augustine writes in the “City of God” that the good man (i.e., authentic Christians and good, decent Westerners and Americans), even if he has become a slave to wicked men is actually the free man, but the wicked man, though a king, is the slave. For he serves not one man alone, but what is worse, as many masters as he has vices. 

The Spirit of the Lord has departed from rebels and turned them over to other spirits as He did with the wicked people of Noah’s day.  Thus wicked men are not only the slaves of their unfettered libidos and madness but the demons who influence their moral imbecility and inflame their passions, as was the case with King Saul.  

As a society is comprised of men and women, it is when a majority have fallen into idolatry, libido dominandi, madness and demonic subjection that a tyranny of evil prevails. Common features of evil  societies include but are not limited to the following:  

1. Warped, distorted, freakish characters; narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark natures, scoffing, mocking, cruel criticism, contempt and ridicule

2. Extreme, uncontrollable passions resulting in abnormal, compulsive sexuality, sodomy, bestiality, pederasty, androgyny (transgender); meanness, spite, hate, violence, wrath, explosive rage, belligerence, theft, rape, murder, killing of babies, beatings, terrorism

3. Compulsive dark thoughts of suicide and murder; hideous nightmares, the sensation of standing atop an abyss, anxiety states, persecution complexes

4. Sexualization of culture: sexualized women, teens, boys, girls, babies and animals; love of nudity and titillation, addiction to pornography and drugs

5. Automatic rebellion against any vestige of authority

6. Moral relativism: the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil, natural and unnatural, truth and lie.  All ‘truth’ and ‘values’ are subject to each whining, demanding narcissist’s personal likes (whatever is coveted) and dislikes (whoever is hated and envied) since each narcissist is independent “and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will…”

5. Naturalism: all that exists is nature or cosmos (matter), hence there can be no relevance in anything beyond our senses; there is nothing above us and no hell below

6. Madness or moral imbecility: all sense suddenly seems like nonsense, nothing is ever right, natural, good and true

7. Demonic subjection: confusion, psychosis, psychopathy, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts against Jesus Christ and Christian symbols, Holy Days, and prayer

Even though rebels against God deny their own personal responsibility for the wicked choices they make, 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, "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, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Believing themselves free and intellectually enlightened, rebels against God are in reality the spiritually blind slaves of their unfettered libidos and the demons who influence their moral imbecility and inflame their passions, causing them to publicly shame themselves with their outrageous words and actions, scar and mutilate their bodies, prostitute themselves to dictators, publicly confess their own hypocrisy and stupidity, torment them with frightening nightmares and fantasies, and compel them to dwell on thoughts of suicide and murder.

If you will not submit your will to our Lord who does not want any of His sheep to be lost, then you must say hello to the demons. You will submit to them.

Demonic Subjection: What Is It and Why It Overshadows America

In "The Spiritist Fallacy," a penetrating analysis of the Luciferian Theosophy, Buddhism and Spiritism that emerged out of the Renaissance taking hold of the minds of modernist priests and intellectuals, the highly respected French traditionalist metaphysician Rene Guenon (1886-1951) describes deluded "enlightened" theologians and intellectuals as those who can no longer speak of the devil,

"....without a smile of disdain, or an even more contemptuous shrug of the shoulders." (p. 252)

Their smug contempt is due to the fact that they believed the spirit-channeled lie that Lucifer is not the devil but rather the "light-bearer." After all, if evolution is true, as enlightened sophisticates believe, then there was no fall, hence man is not fallen and Lucifer is not the devil but the first free-thinker, the emancipator of man and the angel of evolution. Modern sophisticates even go so far as to call him 'the Great Creative Intelligence.' Thus they invoke Lucifer and perform his cult, but in fact these people,

"...though in fact Satanists, are only unconsciously so, for they are mistaken as to the nature of the entity to whom they address their worship....It goes without saying that these 'enlightened' priests are all plainly modernists and that the spirit animating them is strangely similar to that affirmed in these lines." (p. 254)

Modernism emerged out of the Renaissance when many influential Christians at the highest levels of the Church and society fell away from orthodox Christian theism in favor of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings and Hermetic magic that originated centuries before Jesus Christ.

Whether today’s Modernist “elites” call themselves empirical realists, naturalists, Marxists, Fascists, green nature worshippers, Wiccans, Rosicrucian’s, upper level Free Masons, liberal  theologians, Theosophists, Technocrats, Trans-humanists or New Age they have this is common: all are demonically subjected to greater and lesser degrees and some of them possessed because 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 disobedient, living in persistent sin, practicing occult arts, or who in their pride and envy outright reject and hate Him.    Thus we find the Lord of Hosts sending an evil spirit to King Saul (1 Sam. 16:14) which tormented him,

filling him with unrest, anger, fear and murderous intent.” (Occult Bondage and Deliverance, Kurt E. Koch, p. 137)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) was a highly respected German minister who pastored, counseled and delivered more than twenty thousand people suffering from demonic subjection in its various forms and manifestations throughout the world.  It may well be that there is no one with more first-hand experience and knowledge in the field of Satanism than Koch.  

According to Koch, demonic subjection is a surprisingly common occurrence in our so-called "enlightened" times and refers to the condition of a person who is bound and subject to Satan’s power so that though the person in bondage is not the actual devil he or she is of like mind with him. 

Most people have little or no clue that they are in fact demonically subjected, while some of the most dangerous, such as Stalin for example, seem to possess a limitless supply of demonic energy, especially when engaged in imposing their will over the wills of others.  Kaganovitch, Stalin's brother-in-law and closest collaborator describes Stalin as no longer human:

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

Milovan Djilas, Communist leader of Yugoslavia, perceptively describes the mesmerizing satanic energy emanating from Stalin:

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

There are many underlying causes of demonic subjection. Koch delineates some of the leading ones:

If a person blatantly lives a life of sin and persistently resists the Spirit of God and remains completely unrepentant, or if a person carries the sin of murder or abortion on his conscience, or has committed perjury or practical incest, if he has cursed his fellow men or blasphemed against the cross or against Christ, the Holy Spirit, or God, then he will have laid himself open to the devil’s attacks.  Every curse is in fact a cry to the devil, and can for this reason lead a person into bondage.” (Occult Bondage, 138)

Demonic subjection inevitably befalls those who persistently engage in psycho-spiritual techniques such as channeling, tantric yoga, Kundalini yoga, centering techniques, visualizing/dreaming, positive imaging, trance music, brain-altering drugs, heavy metal and drugs, necromancy, magic, and witchcraft.  The same danger pertains to use of occult devices such as Ouija and Enneagram together with any of the other occultisms spreading like wildfire over America and into the whole body of the sleeping Church.

One of the first things to become subject to demonic influence is a person’s thoughts and feelings:

This often results in a complete attitude of indifference to any spiritual influence, and to an open rejection of any belief in God.  The Word of God loses its power to speak, and God’s promises become meaningless.  The person finds he can only entertain evil thoughts in his mind and ideas which are opposed to God.  He is gripped with a passion for lying and impure thoughts.  Indeed, the desire to lie so fills him that he does so unconsciously. In spite of feeling no remorse for his sins, he will be plagued with a continuous feeling of restlessness, with a lack of peace, and depressive moods.”  (Occult Bondage, p. 140)

In the following examples, Dr. Koch outlines some other conditions denoting demonic subjection that with every day becomes increasingly descriptive of both American culture and apostatizing Church:

1.Warped, distorted character; narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature

2. Extreme passions; abnormal sexuality, violent temper, fits of rage, belligerence, tendencies to addiction, meanness, kleptomania

3. Compulsive thoughts of suicide and murder; anxiety states, persecution complexes

4. Demonic possession: confusion, delusion; destructive, murderous urges; fits of mania, tendency to violence, inhabitation by demons, conscious atheism, simulated piety, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts and bigoted attitude against Christ and God. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

In "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," (1992) Malachi Martin presents five cases of possession expressing important elements and basic attitudes characterizing the demonic subjection and possession overtaking America’s Godless postmodern society. In the possessed person, such as the 'no longer human' Stalin, these elements and attitudes are pushed to a very narrow and frightening extreme. Martin summarizes these elements and attitudes in the following points:

1.Moral imbecility: All sense suddenly seems like nonsense; nothing is ever right.

2. Hopelessness, death and suicide confirmed as the only hope

3. Death, cruelty and contempt are normal

4. Moral relativism and/or postmodernism: the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil; all 'truth' and 'moral' values are subject to one's personal preference

5. Empiricism: The supernatural and miraculous must be resolved in 'natural' or rational and empirically verifiable scientific explanations

6. Naturalism: There can be no relevance for the modern person in anything that cannot be rationally understood and no 'truth' important beyond what is this-worldly or natural.

7. Androgyny: There are multiple and ever-expanding 'genders' and expressions of 'love'

8. Fatal confusion between spirit (mind, will) and psyche (soul). Of this Martin said, "If everything (of) spirit can be made to seem a product merely of human psyche...then love can be made to seem only a chemical interaction, and love's paradigm is killed."

9. Confusion: One basic note of possession is confusion of truth with lie, good with evil, supernatural with natural. Confusion, or satanic inversion, is a primary weapon of evil said Martin.

In "Three Characteristics of the Diabolical, and how they are Manifest in the Modern World," Msgr. Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington provides three more elements and attitudes characteristic of demonic subjection in our God-less society:

1. Love of Nudity:

"This is clearly manifest at several levels. First there is the widespread tendency of immodest dress..."fashions" (that) reveal more than is reasonable and generally have, as their intent to draw attention to aspects of the body that are private and reserved for sexual union in marriage. Too many in our culture see little problem parading about in various stages of undress, wearing clothing that are more intended to disclose and call attention to, than to conceal the private areas of the body. This love of disclosure and titillation is surely an aspect of the Evil One's love of nudity, and he has surely spread his obsession to many in the modern West".

2. Pornography: 

 "Though nothing new in this fallen world, has surely reached epidemic proportions via the Internet. Any psychotherapist, counselor or priest will tell you that addiction to pornography is a huge problem among people today. Pornographic sites on the Internet outpace all others tenfold. Multimillion Americans are viewing enormous amounts of pornography and the "industry" is growing exponentially. What was once hidden away in adult bookstores is now one click away on the Internet. And the thought that browsing habits are easily discoverable matters little to the addicts of this latest form of slavery. Many are on a steep slope downward into ever more deviant forms of porn. Many end up at illegal sites before they even know what has happened to them, and the FBI is knocking on their door. Satan's love of nudity has possessed many!"

3. The overall sexualization of culture also ties in to Satan's love of nudity: 

 "We sexualize women to sell products. We even sexualize children. Our sitcoms chatter endlessly about sex in a very teenage and immature sort of way. We are, collectively, goofy and immature about sex, and our culture giggles like horny teenagers obsessed with something we don't really understand. Yes, Satan loves nudity, and everything that goes with it."

4.  Confusion or satanic inversion is a prime weapon of evil:

"And then of course there is the utter confusion that celebrates homosexual activity. What Scripture calls gravely sinful, disordered, and contrary to nature (= ðáñὰ öýóéí – para physin – Rom 1:26) many in our culture now openly celebrate. And those afflicted as such, openly identify themselves with what tempts them:

"Under another housing option, Wesleyan’s Office of Residential Life invites gender-confused students who identify themselves under the umbrella of one or more of the 15 alternative sexualities to join a house embracing everyone but heterosexuals. This campus residence is called “Open House,” which welcomes each of the 15 groups represented by the acrostic “LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM.” For those not in-tune with many of the invented “gender identities,” LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM individuals represent the following groups (in order): lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, genderf***, polyamorous, bondage/disciple, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism." (Wesleyan Univ. pulls men-only frats, pushes housing for 15 ‘sexualities,' Michael F. Haverluck, OneNewsNow.com,  Friday, February 27, 2015)  

Rather than lament the difficulty and trial of such affliction and offer love, support and truth that they, may live celibately, (as all the unmarried are called to do), our sex saturated culture, blinded and darkened by its own wild lust, affirms and encourages them to indulge what can only bring further harm to them, and others, for it is of the darkness and contrary to nature. They have exchanged the truth of God for a lie... Romans 1:25"   (blog.adw.org, Apr. 8, 2013)

Homosexual activity is of the darkness, yet while our White House and increasing numbers of Americans tolerate and celebrate it our children, military, and society in particular are paying the price:

It appears that the DOD has serious problems  with male-on-male sexual assaults that men are not reporting and the Pentagon doesn’t want to talk about,” said Elaine  Donnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness. She noted that only 2 percent of assailants are women." (Victims of sex assaults in military are mostly men, Rowan Scarborough, washingtontimes.com, May 20, 2013)

"Forcible sodomy of men and rape of women is certainly causally connected to completed and attempted suicides. Yet, despite the high rates of male and female rape and forcible sodomy, the CDP report dodges the prominent role of both sexual abuse and pornography - that is, how-to sex abuse manuals and videos - in fueling the lust and contempt that spawns both offender sexual abuse and victim suicidal ideation." (Military sodomite abuse: The untold story, Judith Reisman, Ph.D., drjudithreisman.com, May 2013)

 "The Obama Administration is heightening its already-heavy focus on promotion of its “LGBT rights” agenda  overseas, creating a specific ambassador slot to champion the cause."   (Obama admin. announces first-ever Special Envoy for LGBT rights, Lisa Bourne, Wed Feb 25, 2015) 

"The Little Black Book - Queer in the 21st Century," an extremely depraved and disgusting "how-to" booklet "was distributed to hundreds of kids (middle school age and up) at Brookline High School, Brookline, MA, on April 30, 2005.

Why Evolutionary Materialism leads to the Unreality of Your Existence

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

Meyer writes, 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Neo-Pagan, Anti-Human God-Haters

Darwinian materialists are anti-Triune God:

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

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

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

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

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

Metaphysical Nihilism: Everything and Nothing

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

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

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

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

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

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

You can be as God

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

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

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

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

Nihilism: You are of Nothing

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

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

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

Jesus to Buddha,  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Choose Eternal Blessing and not Cursing

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

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

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


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

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

The West's Gnostic Caste System: Gnostikoi, Psychics and Somatics

Without our realizing it, the chief ancient and modern rival of supernatural Christianity--Gnostic Modernism (occult pantheism)---has triumphed over the West and America.   It emerged out of the Renaissance and began its' infiltration of the American Christian church at the beginning of the last century.   In speaking of its' inroads J. Gresham Machen said,

"A terrible crisis has arisen in the Church. In the ministry of evangelical  churches are to be found hosts of those who reject the gospel of Christ. By the  equivocal use of traditional phrases, by the representation of differences of  opinion as though they were only differences about the interpretation of the  Bible, entrance into the Church was secured for those who are hostile to the  very foundations of the faith. And now there are some indications that the  fiction of conformity to the past is to be thrown off, and the real meaning of  what has been taking place is to be allowed to appear. The Church, it is now  apparently supposed, has almost been educated up to the point where the shackles  of the Bible can openly be cast away and the doctrine of the Cross of Christ can  be relegated to the limbo of discarded subtleties." (Liberalism or Christianity, Machen, The Princeton Theological Review, Vol. 20, No. 1, 1922, Page 93, Whitehorse Inn)

For faithful orthodox Christians, the 'very foundations of the faith' are the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis and to a greater degree, the Christian worldview.  Genesis is the Divine account of the origin of the universe, of all life, of the creation and purpose of man and woman, the foundation and purpose of marriage, the roles of the two sexes male and female, and of the value of children.

In His divine revelation God also tells us what went wrong with the world and man in the account of the fall and reveals something of man’s cosmic adversary and his timeless methods of deception and seduction used to lead men away from God.  Thus the question of evil, suffering, and death is explained in the first eleven chapters of Genesis as well as the ‘fix,’ meaning the only way of salvation.

Gnostic Modernism (mystical pantheist spirituality) and its' materialist evolutionary counterpart are subtly disguised syncretic mixtures of Babylonian Cabalism, ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, the Mysteries from the time of Babylon, spiritual evolution, Greek and Roman nature religions, Eastern mysticism, reincarnation, karma and an inverted evolutionary account bespeaking the evolutionary transformation of various creatures into human beings.

 The primary doctrine for both variations is an inverted evolutionary account of origins.  Other commonalities are denial of creation ex nihilo, the incarnation and deity of Jesus Christ and His resurrection, and  denial of hell.  Gnostics of both stripes find salvation in the gnosis of elite men such as scientists, philosophers, and spiritual gurus and either teach a godless evolving  universe of matter or a pantheist based conception of God as divine energy, Life force, Mind of the Universe, Christ consciousness, or Omega, for example.    Gnostic Modernism further claims that as God is supposedly in everything, and everything is continuously evolving, then God is always in process of 'becoming' or 'changing.'   Thus all things, including the Bible and the Christian church, the two sexes, truth, and moral laws must change or become 'contemporary' too.  

Within Darwinian biological evolution, evolutionary dynamics are not empirical science but rather metaphysical conceptions while in theological modernism they are spiritual conceptions.  From the time of the Renaissance when high-ranking, influential Christian Churchmen, intellectuals, and mystics had rejected the fundamental teachings of Christian theism in favor of the Mysteries, Cabalism and other ancient creeds on through to the German Idealists of early 19th century, evolution was viewed as a spiritual conception bespeaking progress (transformation) of spirit over time within many different bodies.

The German Idealists were mystical philosophers of pantheism who predated Darwin's Origin of Species by at least half a century.  In 1799 the mystic philosopher Friedrich Schelling summarized what was fascinating him as well as his mystical contemporaries such as J.G. Fichte and the occult Hermetic magician Hegel:

"History as a whole is a progressive, gradually self-disclosing revelation of the Absolute." (A Brief History of Evolutionary Spirituality, Tom Huston)

The modern conception of spiritual evolution can be traced to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.  Writing on “The Ultimate Origin of Things” in the year 1697—six years after speculating in his Protogaea that over the vast course of the earth’s history “even the species of animals have many times been transformed” he claimed that,

a cumulative increase of the beauty and universal perfection of the works of God, a perpetual and unrestricted progress of the universe as a whole must be recognized, such that it advances to a higher state of development.”

Though the idea that man and creation are not fallen but rather evolving upward from primordial matter in a ceaseless ascent toward perfection had already been intuited over seventy years earlier by the German mystic Jakob Böhme, it was Leibniz who first placed it in a scientific context.

Over the next few decades Gnostic thinkers such as Diderot, Maupertuis, Buffon, and Voltaire all wrote about the fascinating topic of evolution but, "like any self-respecting champions of the Age of Enlightenment, rarely felt compelled to inject divinity into their more scientific speculations."

By upholding the liberating power of rationalism, science and evolution to subvert the fundamentals of the Bible and Christian theism, they actively sought to draw a clear distinction between science and spirituality, reason and religion.  In this context, through much of the eighteenth century, the many musings about the idea of evolution frequently took on a strictly naturalistic or materialistic tone:

"It was only around 1799, ten years after the storming of the Bastille, which ignited the French Revolution and cemented the success of the rational Enlightenment in the annals of the Western mind, that these varied intimations of evolution finally congealed into a cohesive new model of reality. Arising, once again, from the fertile depths of the German zeitgeist, it was a cosmological and metaphysical paradigm that seamlessly united science and spirituality—an evolutionary vision that stretched from the simplest atoms of the distant past to a sacred future in which human society would perfectly reflect the transcendent unity of the Divine. " (ibid, Huston)

In his essay, "The Paganization of New Testament Studies," Dr. Peter Jones exposes theological progressivism as neo-pagan Gnosticism and writes that throughout its history, its' primary goal has been the,

"... importation into the church via the use of Christian terminology, of the various historic expressions of pagan notions, in particular, the denial of God's transcendence. In this sense, the first "liberals" were the Gnostics. Certainly a form of Gnosticism, sometimes called proto-Gnosticism is behind the denial of the incarnation in the Johannine epistles, and of the resurrection in the early and later Paulines. Interestingly, the Liberals of the modern period have had great admiration for the proto-Gnostics, in particular, Marcion. In A.D. 150, Marcion, a theologian from Pontus in Asia Minor, was excommunicated from the Church in Rome for heretical teaching. He dismissed God the Creator, the Old Testament, the Mosaic law, and three of the gospels. From the few epistles of Paul that he accepted, he expunged Old Testament quotations and claimed to worship the "alien god" behind the God of Scripture. " 

Twentieth century's most dangerous expression of secular Gnosticism was Marxist Communism, a form of Manichean Gnosticism.  Also called scientific socialism, Marxist Communism was the first natural religion of scientific evolutionary Gnostic atheism to emerge out of the “God is dead” Enlightenment period.  Since scientific socialism is a religion of  'matter' and the energies that work on matter it requires the unmaking of man created in the spiritual likeness of the living, personal Creator.

Bella Dodd was an important leader of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) in the 1930' s and 1940's. Her book, "School of Darkness" (1954) reveals that Communism---the promise of a utopia-- was a hoax perpetrated by a banker/corporatist coterie "to control the common man" and to advance world tyranny.  In chapter eleven of Dodd's book she notes that the unmaking of man as God's spiritual image-bearer is the key to the spiritual, intellectual and physical enslavement of mankind:

 “This is the key to the mental enslavement of mankind: that the individual is made into nothing, that he operates as the physical part of what is considered a higher group intelligence and acts at the will of that higher intelligence….”

The mental and physical enslavement (dehumanization of the masses) is required by highly evolved gnostikoi (pneumatics), proud spiritual elites who see themselves as the only ones capable of reason and of ordering the lives of everyone else, right down to the smallest detail.

In "Against the Protestant Gnostics," (p. 34) pastor and theologian Philip J, Lee writes that gnostikoi take it upon themselves to divide humankind into three categories:

1. Somatic (hylic): the masses of unevolved mindless beast-men who are content to exist on a bodily level: eating, drinking, defecating, sleeping, partying, copulating, sodomizing each other, and dying.  Hylic are mere beast-men beyond help.  

2. Psychics: those who function at the higher level of mind, intellect, emotions---the commonsense types who comprise the majority of the Church, Tea Partiers, etc.

3. Pneumatics: the elite spiritual gnostikoi----the man-gods comprising America's Progressive Ruling Class.

The Gnostic Basilides, when asked if somatics could really be called men at all, categorically denied it.   Sounding just like modern gnostic Marxists, their fascist brethren and America's gnostic "elites" who dehumanized the masses in order to destroy the family, enslave, manipulate, propagandize, indoctrinate, gas, starve to death, euthanize and abort them, Basilides said: 

"We are men; all the others are pigs and dogs."  (ibid, Lee)

Modern Gnostic regimes (Marxist Communism, Hitler's Socialism) began by rejecting the Triune God and Christ's deity, denying objective standards of right and wrong, and forcing Darwinism---which dehumanizes mankind---onto an unwitting population.   Darwinism allows the gnostikoi to throw out sanctity of life and reduce mankind to matter in motion.  The end case in every instance, was to place absolute power over dehumanized masses (somatics) in the hands of antihuman psychopaths and autocratic states to be wielded without restraint or mercy.  

Of all belief systems, modern Gnosticism has been by far the bloodiest.  In his book, Death by Government, R.J. Rummel comprehensively details the roughly 170 million people murdered by Gnostic governments during the 20th century. 

Even at its mildest, as is thus far the case here in America, there is a steady level of lying, confiscation, corruption, fraud, and stifling of freedoms and free speech.  For the first time ever, Americans are afraid of saying certain words.  Parents fear disciplining their own children.  More ominously, the gnostikoi in control of American institutions---government, seminaries, education, media, science, finance, and law have nearly succeeded in replacing the living, transcendent God with Darwinism, thus allowing them to throw out both sanctity of life and objective standards.  "We the people" have been dehumanized---reduced to matter and energy in motion.

As early as 1926, President Calvin Coolidge was aware of and deeply concerned by the insidious spread evolutionary materialism (Gnostic neo-paganism) in America.  As he knew, Americans are free only because of the supernatural Judeo-Christian foundation laid by the country's founders.  In a speech he delivered in Philadelphia (July 5, 1926) to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence he tried to call Americans back to their Biblically-based heritage.

He reminded Americans that the Declaration's principles of liberty arise from man's God-given inalienable rights.  And these are found, said Coolidge,

"in the texts, the sermons, and the writings of the early colonial clergy..."  The clergy preached equality "because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man."  Sanctity of life, the right to self-defense, and all the rest of our individual liberties were justified "by the text that we are all created in the divine image, all partakers of the divine spirit."  God's children therefore, have no "superiors" there are no modern-day "divine rights kings"  (or gnostikoi) who possess "any right to rule...over them." (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

The Declaration,

"(is) a great spiritual document."  Its principles are not material but spiritual.  "Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man---these are not elements we can see and touch.  They are ideals (whose) source and roots (are) in religious convictions.  They belong to the unseen world." (ibid)

President Coolidge cautioned Americans that,

"......unless the faith of the Americans in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish.  We can not continue to enjoy the result if we abandon the cause." (ibid)

Coolidge ended his speech with a stark warning:

"We must not sink into a pagan materialism..."  

Issuing another wake-up call, Dr. Jones closed his essay with a warning that comes from Johannes van Oort, Professor of church history and the history of dogma at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and world expert on Manichean Gnosticism.  Oort states a fact and gives a challenge:

"…Gnosis in one form or another is expected to become the main expression of secular religion in the new millennium. In order to equip the Church for this new age, the scientific study of Gnosticism is vital."

Lessons of Evil

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thought-Control in Sovietized America

"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

 "The fact is 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, Address to the 10th Annual Freedom 21 Conference, 10/16/09)

The imposition of thought control in America follows the Soviet model where all means of information dissemination including news media, liberalized seminaries, the education establishment, science, and entertainment and music industries were in the hands of trained bureaucratic commissars, or conditioners.  

Bruce Walker, author of "The Sovietized American Media," agrees and writes that Kremlin bosses,

"...had no interest in their subjects knowing anything about the world or having any honest opinions expressed." So what "happened in the Soviet media was the systematic suppression of all real news and a purging of all serious intellectual inquiry.  All news made the party leaders look good, or it simply wasn't news...The media, wholly controlled at every level by the dull Politburo functionaries who desired only to hold their power, perks, and coerced prestige, existed for a single purpose:  prevent any real news from reaching the ordinary subject in the Soviet Union."

"Isn't that the way things are in America today?  The leftist establishment media, which includes entertainment, education, and all the other conveyor belts of information and ideas, ignore the vast ocean of muck which could affect the political bosses in Washington (more and more our Moscow) and instead either present absurdly fluffy pieces intended to make sock puppets like Obama look good or portray the notional enemies of the people as vicious and corrupt."

Not only is there no news as such, but much of what passes for news is gossip, slander and destructive criticism presented as investigative journalism; lifestyle pieces that condition us to accept the latest imperative from the food-police or alternative lifestyle-choice directors; fear-inducing arguments for more gun control since racism, homophobia and sexism are serious problems caused by traditional Judeo-Christian religious values that make people dangerous maniacs.

Those familiar with Orwell's Oceania in 1984 recognize the patterns, said Walker,

"The Ministry of Truth published stories about an increase in the chocolate ration even as the chocolate ration was actually being decreased.  Those people whose very existence might have threatened the totalitarian control of the Inner Party became "unpersons" (and all) news, all education, all recreation was consumed with hatred of whoever the Inner Party demanded was the enemy -- and those "enemies" could change, literally, overnight -- and with a sludge pipe of pseudo-news intended to create the pretense of information while scrupulously stripping off anything of genuine substance or value in understanding the world."  (Walker, America Thinker, May 5, 2013)

Beginning at least eighty years ago, Leftists and fellow travelers initiated an agenda for the take-over of our traditional Christian based culture and religious and tradition sustaining institutions. They succeeded beyond their wildest imaginings.  Today America is a post-Christian society quickly transitioning into the universal atheism and social justice agenda that characterized the former Soviet Union. 

Both communism and the Left are alive and thriving here in America.  They favor code words: social justice, economic justice, environmental justice, gender justice, peace, reproductive rights, choice, sex education and safe sex, safe schools, tolerance, inclusion, diversity, and sensitivity.  All together, this is communism disguised as multiculturalism.

Birth of Multiculturalism

In anticipation of the revolutionary storm that would baptize the world in an inferno of red terror and blood, leading to its rebirth as the promised land of social justice and proletarian equality-Frederich Engels wrote,

"All the...large and small nationalities are destined to perish...in the revolutionary world storm... (A general war will) wipe out all...nations, down to their very names.  The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only reactionary classes...but...reactionary peoples."  ("The Magyar Struggle," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, Jan. 13, 1849)

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

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

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

The new battleground, reasoned Gramsci, must become the culture, starting with the traditional family and completely engulfing churches, seminaries, grade schools, universities, news media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, science, and history.  All of these things must be radically transformed, Americans demoralized and dumbed-down, and the social and cultural order gradually turned upside-down with the angry, resentful, immoralist 'new' proletariat placed in power at the top.  Rather than Daniel Boone as a role model for boys, now there would be soft, poly-gendered males and gender-neutral rock stars to emulate.

The Prototype

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

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

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

Building a base

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

The primary goal of the Frankfurt School was to translate Marxism from economic terms into deceptive cultural terms. It would provide the ideas on which to base a new political theory of constant change, or continuous revolution based on culture, and harnessing new oppressed groups such as homosexuals and lesbians for the faithless proletariat. Smashing Christianity, truth, morals and Western tradition, it also built a constituency among small-minded academics who could build careers studying and writing about the new oppression and agitating for tolerance, gun control, rights of terrorists and 'gay' marriage.

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

Additional intellectual firepower was required: a theory to pathologize everything and everyone marked for destruction. In 1950, the Frankfurt School augmented multiculturalism with Theodor Adorno's idea of the ‘authoritarian personality.'  This concept is premised on the notion that Christianity, individual liberty, the traditional family, privately-owned businesses, and self-defense and gun ownership create a character prone to racism and fascism.  Thus anyone who upholds America's traditional moral values and institutions is both racist and fascist.  Children raised by traditional morals parents, we are told to believe, will almost certainly become racists and fascists.  By extension, if fascism and racism are endemic to America's traditional culture, then everyone raised in the traditions of God, family, patriotism, gun ownership, and free markets is in need of psychological help, primarily in the form of brain-altering drugs.

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

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

A corresponding and diabolically crafted idea is political correctness.  The strong suggestion here is that in order for one not to be thought of as racist or fascist, then one must not only be nonjudgmental but must also embrace the ‘new' moral absolutes: diversity, choice, sensitivity, sexual orientation, and tolerance.  Political correctness is a psychological ‘command and control' technique.  Its purpose is the imposition of uniformity in thought, speech, and behavior.

Critical theory is yet another psychological ‘command and control' technique.  As stated by Daniel J. Flynn,

"Critical Theory, as its name implies, criticizes.  What deconstruction does to literature, Critical Theory does to societies."  (Intellectual Morons, p 15-16)

In practice, critical theory issues in an ongoing and brutal psychological assault by way of vicious criticism, ridicule, slander, character assassination, defamation and seething scorn relentlessly leveled against Christians, creationists, Christmas, the Boy Scouts, Ten Commandments, our military, and all other aspects of traditional American culture and society. 

Both political correctness and critical theory are in essence, psychological bullying.  They are the psychological battering rams by which Frankfurt School disciples such as the ACLU are forcing Americans to submit to and obey the will and the way of Leftist immoralists.  These devious techniques are but psychological versions of Georg Lukacs and Laventi Beria's ‘cultural terrorism' tactics.  In the words of the demonically energized Beria,

"Obedience is the result of force...Force is the antithesis of humanizing actions.  It is so synonymous in the human mind with savageness, lawlessness, brutality, and barbarism, that it is only necessary to display an inhuman attitude toward people to be granted by those people the possessions of force." ("The Russian Manual on Psychopolitics: Obedience," by Laventi Beria, head of Soviet Secret Police and Stalin's right-hand man)

Double-thinking ‘fence-sitters,' otherwise known as dazed, confused, cowardly moderates, centrists, RINOs and culturally-accommodating priests bear the imprint of these psychological ‘obedience' techniques.  These people are afraid of incurring the wrath of name-calling obedience trainers and have opted to accommodate themselves, their politics, morals and even their churches to our morally degraded culture lest they be found guilty of politically incorrect thought.  At the merest hint of displeasure from the obedience-trainers, up goes the yellow flag of surrender upon which it is boldly written:

"I believe in nothing and am tolerant of everything!"

Genetic Determinism

The linchpin of multiculturalism is genetic and/or cultural determinism, the parent of identity politics and group solidarity.  In its turn, genetic determinism was birthed by the Darwinian idea that man is but an evolved aggregate of matter, a soulless animal whose identity is genetically determined by skin color or sexual and/or erotic preferences.  This proposition rejects the concepts of the human spirit, Original Sin, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience (paired with personal accountability and responsibility) because it emphatically denies the existence of the transcendent living God of the Bible. 

Consequently, and by extension, it also rejects the first principles of our liberty enumerated in the Declaration of Independence.  These are our "unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."  Multiculturalism rejects these principles because they "are endowed by our Creator," who made man in His image.

Cultural determinism, states 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) 

It is said that courage is the first of the virtues because without it fear of persecution and rejection will paralyze man, thus keeping him from acting upon his moral convictions and speaking truth.  Thus bringing about a general state of paralyzing fear, confusion, apathy, cowardice and submission----the chains of tyranny----is the purpose behind psychological terrorism, for the communist Left's revolutionary agenda must at all costs, be clothed in secrecy and darkness.

The antidote is courage and the light of truth.  We must put aside our fear of rejection and persecution and muster the courage to fearlessly expose the Left's immoralist, evil totalitarian agenda to the Light of Truth.    Truth and the courage to speak it will set us free.

Dante's Inferno: Circle 6 for the Heresy of Materialism

Dante's Inferno categorically presents the different strata of sin. The concept of sin revolves around the rejection of God's Revelation and Christian virtues. 

 Circle 6  (Canto 10) is the place of torment for all who commit the sin of heresy in deference to "profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called" (1 Timothy 6:20).   Among the heretics are both the materialists of his own time as well as the Greek nature philosopher Epicurus (341-270 B.C.E).   While the common definition of materialism is love of pleasure, wealth, and things for example, the presence of Epicurus points to something far worse, something altogether sinister.

Epicurus was one of the important theorists in ancient Greek natural philosophy who taught that the universe is composed of physical atoms. Indian Buddhists such as Dharmakirti and others, also contributed to well-developed theories of atomism,  the idea that everything ultimately consists of aggregates of matter.  Reality, soul, and mind are nothing but matter in motion.

Atomism is metaphysical nihilism, 

"... the theory that there are no objects (objects do not exist). 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)

What this means is that so radically has atomism banished God from nature that not only is there no ultimate source for life but none for man's 'self'---- his soul/spirit, the seat of his personhood:

Jesus to Buddha,   "You seek to solve the problem of suffering, and in order to solve it, you say that the self doesn't exist.....you took God away from them (and) your espousal of an absence of self is the most unique and fearsome claim you made...First, you told them there is no God. Then you told them there is no self.  You also told them there is no one to pray to.  You told them there is no evil one to fear. You told them everything is only within themselves, even though those selves do not exist."  (The Lotus and the Cross: Jesus Talks with Buddha, Ravi Zacharias, pp.59, 60, 67, 70)  

Atomism set all things in unceasing, purposeless motion by reducing everything---including man, his soul, and even his thoughts---to mindless atoms perpetually colliding with each other in a void.  Man was reduced to a biological machine, mind (spirit) to brain, and thought to movement of chemicals and firing of neurons.  This view has changed very little:

"We are descended from robots, and composed of robots..."   --Daniel C. Dennett, Kinds of Minds

Plato was one of the most forceful and compelling critics of Atomism.  In Book X of Laws, he indicts  Atomists for reversing the natural order, which they did by placing non-life bearing matter before Nous (mind/soul), and for the reductionism that sets everything in motion and reduces man to a machine. 

Plato foresees only misery, social disintegration and ultimately,

"...the ruin of both states and families" should Atomism become the accepted view."  (Darwin Day in America, John G. West, p. 6)

Though Christianity reared a mighty barrier against Atomism, it would be resurrected along with ancient esoteric doctrines during the Renaissance by among others, pantheist Giordano Bruno, Thomas Hobbs, Descartes, and Paracelsus.

With the source of man's humanity (mind/soul) expropriated by materialists and conferred upon "lifeless chemicals" "electricity" "phosphorous" and "blood," for example, a rush to discover the key that unlocks the mystery to life and mind was ignited which has been unleashing unspeakable evils ever since. 

Believing that some type of electricity was the animating principle of machine-man, Giovanni Aldini performed macabre experiments on the decapitated heads of animals and once he had overcome his repugnance, on humans.  For his experiments, he procured the freshest specimens possible by placing himself,

"....under the scaffold, near the axe of justice..."   Rationalizing his horrible experiments by saying that only the, "unenlightened part of mankind (will be) apt to entertain a prejudice..."  Aldini applied electricity to various parts of decapitated human heads which produced "the most horrid grimaces (but the) action of the eyelids was exceedingly striking.."  (Darwin Day in America, p. 15)

Julien de la Mettrie (1709-51), Paul Henri Thiery, and Baron D'Holbach (1723-89) all agreed that the mind is the property of dead matter and man nothing but a machine.  La Mettrie speculated that machine-man's rational life is entirely determined by physical causes  running the gamut from raw meat, to climate, blood circulation, and gender.  Genetic inheritance, posits la Mettrie, causes machine-man to commit crime.  This view casts parents, and especially all traditionalists such as faithful Christians and Jews 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.   (ibid, 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 the pantheist monist Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the scientism dictum---ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny---all agreed that life and mind are properties of dead 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." (ibid, p. 41)

According to Darwin, natural selection and the laws of heredity acting on matter produced mind, morality, and civilization.  By describing how lifeless natural mechanisms caused the complexity of life to alchemically emerge from lifeless 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 and inadvertently by intellectually proud and weak priests who have supplanted the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo with Darwin's materialist theory.

It was during this time that Social Darwinism, Progressive Liberalism, Socialism, Communism, Nazism, Secular Humanism and Transhumanism 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 have instead 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,  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's dehumanizing 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)

It was Marxist materialists who made the first attempt to scientifically re-engineer human beings after the fashion of Buddha's metaphysical nihilism said Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian intellectual.  After seizing control of Russia, they utilized terroristic mind-conditioning techniques and re-education with emphasis on Darwinism as well as brain-altering drugs, electro-shock therapy, torture, and other brutal measures to,

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

Modern materialist states began by rejecting the living God of Revelation and man's soul/spirit, and then moved to deny immutable truth and objective standards of right and wrong.  They threw out sanctity of life and demonically reduced man to matter in motion.   The end case, in every instance, was to place absolute power over  "atomized masses" into the hands of psychopaths and autocratic states to be wielded without restraint or mercy.  

Of all belief systems, the materialist faith has been by far the bloodiest.  In his book, Death by Government, R.J. Rummel comprehensively details the roughly 170 million people murdered by materialist governments during the 20th century. 

From 1917 to its collapse in 1991, the Soviet Union liquidated about 62 million.  During Mao Tse-tung's reign, 35,236,000 were murdered.  Hitler's Nazi's killed 21 million.   

 Even at its mildest, as is thus far the case here in America, there is a steady level of confiscation, corruption, fraud, lying, propaganda, and stifling of freedoms and free speech.  For the first time ever, Americans are afraid of saying certain words.  Parents fear disciplining their own children.  To dissent against evolution is to become a social leper.   More ominously, America's Ruling Class materialists have banished the living God of Revelation, thrown out both sanctity of life and objective standards and are in process of undermining and destroying traditional marriage.   In their eyes,  "We the people" are atomized beings.   Totalitarianism and genocide loom just over our horizon.

As early as 1926, President Calvin Coolidge was aware of and deeply concerned by the insidious spread of scientific materialism in America.  As he knew, Americans are free only because of the Judeo-Christian foundation laid by the country's founders.  In a speech he delivered in Philadelphia, July 5, 1926 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, Coolidge tried to call Americans back to their Judeo-Christian heritage.   He told them the Declaration's principles of liberty arise from man's God-given inalienable rights.  And these are found said Coolidge,

"...in the texts, the sermons, and the writings of the early colonial clergy..."  The clergy preached equality "because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man."  Sanctity of life, the right to self-defense, and all the rest of our individual liberties were justified "by the text that we are all created in the divine image, all partakers of the divine spirit."  God's children therefore, have no "superiors;" there are no modern-day "divine rights kings" who possess "any right to rule...over them."    (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

The Declaration said Coolidge,

"....is a great spiritual document."  Its principles are not material but spiritual.  "Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man---these are not elements we can see and touch.  They are ideals (whose) source and roots (are) in religious convictions.  They belong to the unseen world."

President Coolidge cautioned Americans that,

".....unless the faith of the Americans in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish.  We can not continue to enjoy the result if we abandon the cause."

Coolidge ended his speech with a stark warning,

"We must not sink into a pagan materialism..."   (Back Fired, William Federer, pp. 269-271)

Heedless to Coolidge's warning, "we the people," whether outside the church or within it, have embraced the sin of materialism in the form of endless pleasure, wealth, status symbols, and so forth.   Stupefied by "pagan materialism" we have in effect ceded control of our children and our country to today's other heretics, America's materialist Ruling Class who, believing they are "enlightened" and "scientific,"  have unleashed misery, social disintegration and ultimately, as Plato foresaw, are bringing about "the ruin of both states and families."  

Today's Atomists are leading America over the Gadarene Cliff.

In this light, we are able to understand why Dante placed both the materialists of his own time as well as the Greek nature philosopher Epicurus in the 6th circle of the inferno.

Negation of Being Ends in Death of America

Most Americans in the early years of our Republic truly regarded the Constitution as a miracle, declaring that the formation and adoption of our new system of federal government represented a political achievement unprecedented in human history.

The Founders believed the Constitution was destined to bless all mankind, and that it was incumbent on their successors to preserve and defend our national charter.

In The 5000 Year Leap, author Cleon Skousen details the 28 great ideas utilized by the Founders in the formulation of our Republic. While some were derived from the Romans and others from the Anglo-Saxons, the greatest and most important ideas are Biblical, and of these the Biblical view of mankind is absolutely vital, for it’s precisely from this - the most radical view of man ever known in human history - that our liberties and rights derive.

In this view, man is an animal only in the sense that his body is of the natural realm. Spiritually, he transcends or rises above the natural realm because he is an embodied soul/spirit, and it is this part of him, his being, that is made in the spiritual image of his transcendent Creator.

Man thinks, reasons, and loves because his Creator thinks, reasons, and loves. Unique to man is free will. He can choose to lie or tell the truth; to give into bad impulses or not give into them; to seek truth, beauty and goodness, or conversely, to seek lies, ugliness, and evil. 

Divinely endowed, mankind - unlike all other creatures - is capable of self-government so long as his ability to reason is morally informed at all times. There are only two created sexes, male and female, and there is only one human race. As all men are the creatures of the living Creator, not only do they comprise a spiritual brotherhood, but they are obviously meant to be free.

All of these truths were known by the Founders to be immutable, that is, good everywhere, in all times and not subject to change.  All together, these immutable  principles were encapsulated by the Founders like this:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – Declaration of Independence

The Founders vigorously affirm throughout their writings, said Skousen,  

..."that the foundation of all reality is the existence of the Creator, who is the designer of all things in nature and the promulgator of all the laws which govern nature. ” (A Miracle that Changed the World: The 5000 Year Leap, Principles of Freedom, p. 101)

Coming out of the Constitutional convention, a bystander asked Benjamin Franklin what sort of government had been created. “A Republic,” he responded, “if we can hold on to it.”

By this he meant that if future Americans turned away from the living Creator, the Republic would eventually collapse from chaos-induced immorality and the tyranny which follows in the wake of chaos as surely as night follows day.

Only those with their heads in the sand can deny the flagrant decadence, power-grabbing, betrayal, treachery, dysfunction, moral imbecility and increasing chaos drowning our land:

Genuine individual virtue - the stuff of which true, timeless, praiseworthy character is made,” writes John MacArthur in The Quest for Character, “has been replaced by the public ‘flaunting of decadence.’”

America is now a society that confers celebrity status and privilege on immoral, unnatural, vulgar, and outright villainous people. Being bad is ‘cool,’ but being evil is better. 

In short, a transvaluation or inversion of traditional Christian-based America has taken place. Bad is good, good is bad, the abnormal is normal the normal is abnormal, lie is truth, truth is lie, and 1+1=5.  Not only has traditional values America been turned upside-down but our Constitution and two created sexes rendered meaningless. 

 From a previous MassResistance Update:

"Dear Clara Barton Families, 'our students may notice and ask about the differences in our custodian from last year to this. If they ask at school, they will be given a simple and straightforward answer. The best thing to tell them is that our custodian used to be a man. She has changed her gender role and is now a woman.”

In the American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828 - the dictionary utilized by the founding generation- Noah Webster defines ‘gay’ as “merry, airy, jovial, and frolicksome.”    He defines a ‘person’ as, “An individual human being consisting of body and soul….possessed of a rational nature.’” Mankind is defined as, “the human race; the whole species of human beings; distinguished from all other animals by the powers of reason and speech:  ‘And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion.…Gen. 1.’”

In morally insane, secularized, pagan America,  Yahweh has been shown the door and immutable truth and morality no longer exist, allowing the words ‘gay,’ ‘mankind,’ and ‘person’ to be drained of their true meaning and replaced with depraved ‘new’ meaning. ‘Gay’ now implies that rather than two sexes, there is now a continuum of evolving ‘genders.’ No longer is there but one race of man; now there are multitudes of species and races, including a very superior one known as "liberal," one called ‘gay’ and a very evil one sometimes called "rightwing Christian fundamentalists" and at others, "Tea Partiers." 

 Darwinism having replaced Yahweh, mankind is no longer made in His spiritual image. Now he is nothing more than a chance emergence from nature; an aggregate of matter; a soulless, mindless animal controlled and driven by instinctual impulses.

Showing that pride goes before a fall, the enlightened 'superior' liberal foolishly believes he is evolved, scientific, and progressive but is really nothing more than a trousered ape given over to a debased mind,

".....to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:21-32

America, the “land of the free, home of the brave,” described by Ronald Reagan as a “shining city on a hill,” is in its death throes. Where once a principled, morally-informed, self-controlled people who firmly believed that all men are sinners carefully put into positions of power and authority only other principled, morally-informed, self-controlled people, this is no longer the case. With the exception of a rather small number of decent, moral officeholders, America is now dominated by out-of-control, self- idolizing beast-men who care for nothing but themselves and what they desire - no matter the cost to everyone else.     Beast-men hold office for one overriding reason, and that is because they mirror the out-of-control, morally unstable, intellectually-lazy, life is about having fun “electorate” who put them there.

Secular Dystopians: they've got a ticket to ride---into the bottomless pit

In the Wall Street Journal's  “Notable & Quotable” column, historian Paul Rahe writes:

"One key indicator [of readiness for revolution] is that those with access to the  levers of power within the ruling order cease to believe in the religion or  ideology that legitimizes the regime. . . . First goes the belief in the  legitimacy of the system. Then comes a trigger–an event which causes large  numbers of people to say to themselves, ‘I cannot take this anymore.’ Then, the  crucial question is whether those in charge have the nerve to try to crush the  rebellion and whether their underlings will follow orders. If the powers that be  are hesitant, ambivalent, or divided, if their underlings are fed up, things can  very easily come apart (as they did in eastern Europe, in the Soviet union, and  in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Syria).” (Why has there been no revolution? William Lafferty, freedomoutpost.com, March 23, 2013)

Western civilization, which includes America, is chiefly the product of faith---in the God of Revelation and Biblical precepts and injunctions. But like the majority of those who hold the levers of power and influence today, Obama is an ideological heir of a rebellion against the God of Revelation that began during the Renaissance.

The assault against the living God and Christian absolutes gained speed and force with the philosophical materialist implications of Darwinian theory.  The idea that humans evolved by chance and natural selection from indifferent primordial water lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.  On the heels of Darwinian theory Christian theism came under forceful attack allowing a secular liberal (apostate Christian) and atheistic-mindset to be declared a scientifically supported reality.

In "The Theme is Freedom: Religion, Politics, and the American Tradition," the highly respected historian M. Stanton Evans affirms that the entity known as "Europe" was chiefly a product of Christianity, so much so that Europe and its offspring were once described as Christendom:

"Without Christianity, there would no doubt have been some kind of civilization in the West, but it would have been quite a different civilization from that which we know; for it was only as Christendom---the society of Christian people---that the tribes and people and nations of the West acquired a common consciousness and sense of cultural and spiritual unity...." (Christopher Dawson in The Theme is Freedom, p. 28)

It was Christianity that suffused Europe with a common outlook and gave to the West its distinctive view of tradition, culture, morality, family, sexual ethics, and statecraft:

"That biblical teaching was the formative influence in the creation of Europe, and that Europe was the nursery of freedom as we know it, are both established facts of record....In fact, the precepts of our religion provided the conceptual building blocks for the free societies of the West---including the very idea of liberty (together with) limits on the power of the state..." (ibid, p. 29)

Christian thought is the father of limitations on state power.  Man is fallen, from birth he is a pleasure-seeking egocentric who desires power over others to get what he wants.  America's founding generation embraced this Christian precept and knew therefore that temporal law cannot do away with or even prevent evils arising from the human condition, thus there must be limitations on power of the state:

"There is no country in the world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence over the souls of men than in America...I do not know whether all Americans have a sincere faith in their religion---for who can search the human heart?---but I am certain that they hold it indispensable to the maintenance of republican institutions." (Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville, 1955, p. 316)

Stanton Evans reveals that the defining attitude of secular philosophers and ideological systematizers of the Renaissance and Enlightenment rests on the principle that religious absolutes by their  nature,

"...and the Christian religion in particular, are congenial to oppression."  (ibid, p. 39)

If Christian doctrine is opposed to freedom, then respect for human life as well as liberty should have flourished in secular communist and national socialist regimes.   Yet the reverse was true as slavery, cruelty, terror, genocide and catastrophic destruction characterized 20th century's murderous secular regimes.

If Christian absolutes implies oppression, then it follows that denial of absolutes will lead to freedom.   Thus moral relativism, the erasure of male and female distinctions, alternative lifestyles, diversity and pluralism (equality of all belief systems except for orthodox Christianity and faithful Judaism) are among politically correct outlooks for our secular dystopian society.

While our dystopia draws on all of these nihilistic notions, the evolutionary-scientific-rationalist bias of modern secular thought is the foundation stone since evolutionary theory has supposedly cast down the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.   Here freedom from oppression means that man is no longer created in God's spiritual image.

The apostate Christian philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was the first rebel against the living God to gaze fully upon man’s loss of faith and its terrifying consequences.  With no living God to obstruct his vision, the utter emptiness--the nihilism he saw was agonizing.   In “The Gnostic Religion,” Hans Jonas provides a full-scale study of the heretical world of pre-Christian and Christian era Gnostic nihilism together with its modern variant.

Jonas points out that whereas the ancient gnostic conception was antagonistic, antinomian, demonic and anti-human, it nevertheless retained a source for soul/spirit.   Not so for its’ modern counterpart.   With its’ completely godless, soulless nature, it represents the “absolute vacuum, the really bottomless pit.” (Jonas, p. 339)

For the evolved soulless human-ape there is nothing—no  living God Who will hold every human being accountable for how he lived his life while in the world; no soul/spirit, no heaven above and no hell below.

If all of this is accepted, then there is no reason whatever to observe normal standards of truth, to play by the rules, to respect the institution of marriage, to refrain from social parasitism, theft, force, murder and violence, or to respect the rights and liberties of anyone since human life is cheap, even worthless, since it is the chance product of evolution:

"(Video) MSNBC Repeatedly Calls Babies 'The Things That Might Turn Into Humans:'

Melissa Harris-Perry denies that babies are humans and tells us that her opinion is based on "science" and not "faith" and she also warns us that if these "things that may become human" are allowed to be born, they might represent a financial burden to us all.

Video:   http://conservativeamericaonline.blogspot.com/2013/03/video-msnbc-repeatedly-calls-babies.html

Since Christian absolutes are oppressive, why not demonstrate our contempt and outright hatred for their Author  Jesus Christ by writing His name on a piece of paper and then stomping on it?  In "Professor Makes Students 'Stomp on Jesus,' Todd Starnes reports:

"A Florida Atlantic University student said he was suspended from class after he refused a professor’s directive to stomp on a piece of paper with the word “Jesus” written on it."  (Starnes, Townhall.com, Mar. 22, 2013)

The secular university naturally defends professor Deandre Poole's directive:

"The lesson on bashing the name of Christ is included in a textbook titled, “Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, 5th Edition.”

Fox News obtained a synopsis of the lesson:

Have the students write the name JESUS in big letters on a piece of paper,” the lesson reads. “Ask the students to stand up and put the paper on the floor in front of them with the name facing up. Ask the students to think about it for a moment. After a brief period of silence instruct them to step on the paper. Most will hesitate. Ask why they can’t step on the paper. Discuss the importance of symbols in culture.” (ibid)

Paul Kengor, the executive director of the Center for Vision and Values at Grove City College, told Fox News he’s not surprised by the classroom lesson:

These are the new secular disciples of ‘diversity’ and ‘tolerance’ – empty buzzwords that make liberals and progressives feel good while they often refuse to tolerate and sometimes even assault traditional Christian and conservative beliefs..." “It also reflects the rising confidence and aggression of the new secularists and atheists, especially at our sick and surreal modern universities..."  (ibid)

And finally, if you’re a pastor who seeks validation from secular nihilists and you've just got to be accepted at all costs, then you'll  distance yourself from orthodox Christians and faithful Jews, and like the hipster apostate pastor Rob Bell, you'll demonstrate your worthiness of acceptance by embracing moral relativism, mystical pantheism and same-sex marriage.  (Rob Bell, Homosexuality, and the New Cultural Acceptance, by Owen Strachan, the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, Mar. 19, 2013)

Or perhaps, as Brannon Howse of Worldview Weekend reports, you'll receive acceptance by mocking Christians who want to go deeper into the study of God’s Word. If mockery doesn't go far enough, then maybe you'll bring our sick, nihilistic culture right into God's House by playing AC/DC's satanic “Highway to Hell” to start off the resurrection service at your church.  (Watch Hirelings vs Shepherds, available online for next three days    http://www.worldviewweekend.com/tv  )

"Understand, you unwise among the people: and you fools, when will you be wise?  The Lord knows the thoughts of man, that they are vanity....And he will recompense them their wickedness..." Psalm 94: 8, 11, 23)

Unless they wise up and repent, all of the faithless who  seek entrance into  secularism's inner sanctum need merely to reject the God of Revelation and embrace nihilism in its every permutation to receive their just reward: a smooth, fast ride on the Highway to Hell, down, down, down into the bottomless pit.

Ukraine's Soulless Wasteland: Where America will be Tomorrow

"Most Ukrainians never smile, haven't you noticed?" (Nina Korzh quoted by Marvin Olasky in "Semi-liberated capitals," World Magazine, p. 61, March 2013)

After 70 years of Soviet scientific socialism (communism), the Ukraine for the most part, is a wasteland of lost souls. Decades of atheistic/evolutionary teaching in schools means that most people no longer know that they are the spiritual image-bearers of God, thus the "tendency to see children with disabilities as burdens to be discarded (and) Christianity only as a set of prayers to be recited at baptisms and funerals." (p. 62)

In 1991, Evangelical missionaries arrived in the Ukraine and tried to change that understanding. Though the initial response was exciting, time has shown that for the most part, Ukrainians only momentarily "pledged allegiance to Jesus." As missionary Shannon Ford put it:

"Everyone in the Ukraine has been saved five times." (p. 61)

The Orthodox church is a big part of the problem. Since it enjoys,

"governmental patronage (it) provides no real alternative to worship of the state, which means many Ukrainians often turn to worship of the bottle." (p. 61)

Olasky writes that the underlying problem is religious. Religion is the foundation of culture and the source of moral ethics:

"If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?" Psalm 11:3

If the religious foundation is destroyed then society will disintegrate and the culture will die regardless of how prosperous the people:

“….the society or culture which has lost its spiritual roots is a dying culture…Consequently, the problem of social survival is not only a political or economic problem; it is above all things religious, since it is in religion that the ultimate spiritual roots of both society and the individual are to be found.” (Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? Patrick J. Buchanan, p. 67)

Communism and secular pantheist Christian Liberalism killed the West's Christian foundations.

In the “Letter to My Children” which opens the book “Witness,” Whittaker Chambers argued that Communism is fundamentally a religion, “man’s second oldest faith,” man’s “great alternative faith.” It’s promise was “Ye shall be as gods.” Its vision was “the vision of man without God,” of “man’s mind displacing God as the creative intelligence of the world,” of “man’s liberated mind, by the sole force of its rational intelligence, redirecting man’s destiny…” Communism starkly proclaims one inescapable choice: “God or Man, Soul or Mind, Freedom or Communism.” (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, p. 92, George H. Nash)

If Communism is an expression of war between Christianity and atheism, between the true God of Revelation and sovereign man, another form of the enemy is secular liberalism, the spawn of Enlightenment Deism and Christian (pantheist) liberalism. As Eric Voegelin put it in 1952:

“…if liberalism is understood as the immanent salvation of man and society, communism is certainly its most radical expression.” (ibid, p. 93)

As far back as the mid-19th century and early 20th century, Protestant, Evangelical, Roman Catholic and Orthodox Catholic theology were contaminated and faithful theologians were doing battle within their own denominations against the heresies of modernism--- ideas from the Renaissance, Enlightenment Deism, Marxism, Darwinism, Teilhardism, occult Jungian psychology, and liberal immanent Christianity, none of which have a place in orthodox religious dogma.

Modernism absorbed, radically transformed and inverted orthodox Christian theism. Among its main points are the following:

1. It rejects the Church Fathers and refutes the councils of Trent and Orange

2. It rejects the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and the Incarnation of the Word

3. Adam was a mythological collective and the Fall and Original Sin are irrelevant

4. It advocates continuous evolutionary change, which makes history, unchanging truth, moral absolutes, traditional marriage and the two created sexes absurd

5. The Biblical Father God is supplanted by nature deities variously described as Reason, Mind, Consciousness, Divine Intellect, Cosmogenesis-God, Gaia and Goddess

Faithful theologians ultimately lost the battle between good and evil and Europe's Christian foundations were swept away by a rising tide of modernism. Post-Christian Europe is now a desert of godlessness populated by dead and dying souls for whom the word 'God' has many different meanings, most of them referring to evolved nature deities, forces, and energies. Few people think of God as the living, personal Creator God of the Bible.

According to a 2005 English Church Census regular churchgoers of all denominations only amount to 6.3% of the total population. Of these, only 2.5% attend Bible-based churches. (eauk.org/ 2005)

In 2003 the Evangelical Alliance reported:

"Holy Week has begun with an expert prediction that the Christian church in this country will be dead and buried within 40 years. It will vanish from the mainstream of British life..." (eauk.org/ 2005)

All over post-Christian Europe empty churches and cathedrals now stand as broken monuments to the triumph of Darwinism and secular and occult spiritual humanism. Westminster Abby for example, was where the first third of the King James Old Testament and the last half of the New Testament were translated. But with Charles Darwin, a neo-pagan materialist who abandoned the Creator God and his church and is credited with inventing modern evolutionary theory buried in the floor of the Abby it symbolizes the downward-spiraling highway the Church has been following into irrelevance.

On the other side of the Atlantic, in the "One Nation Under God" Constitutional Republic founded only 250 years ago, few people are aware of the spiritual black plague that has wiped out the land of our Christian forefathers. Nor are many people aware that the same plague is spreading throughout America with the irresistable force of a tsunami. As a result, our culture and moral ethics have gone from being grounded on the foundation of God's Word to being built on the quicksand of autonomous man's untrustworthy word. And this has also happened in every Church that has been contaminated in one fashion or another by modern heresies.

Whether Darwinian or Teilhardian, evolutionary thinking is taught in our schools and even preached in some form or another from Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant and Evangelical church pulpits. In response to yesterday's article, "Teilhard's Transubstantiation of Earth: Aim of the Opus Magnum," a Christian reader wrote that during his high school years, Catholic nuns made him study Teilhard. He had never understood Teilhard he said, and was shocked and dismayed when he learned the truth about him.

A major spiritual transformation of consciousness has taken place in our culture. A rising tide of modernism in unison with doubt, skepticism and outright contempt has swept away America's Christian foundations. In its wake we are dealing with the breakdown of the family, moral relativism, abortion, senseless violence, lawlessness, pornography, sodomy, bestiality, pedophillia, pederasty and incest.

In response to America's advancing spiritual desert, many Christians want to get prayer and the Ten Commandments back into the schools. But if evolution is true and man is nothing more than an evolved ape, then prayer to a nonexistent "flying spagetti monster' is as absurd as the Ten Commandments.

With its' Christian foundations gone America is in a state of tribulation.   In keeping with His Gospel, our Lord not only announced it but He prophecied the trials and tribulations that would encompass His followers.

Of these the greatest would be the challenge in our own age of modernism with its' false prophets, false messiahs, false apostles, ideological systematizers and other workers of deceit who are the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from its inception during the Renaissance, has by its' nature been a rebellion against supernatural Christian theism. (Matthew 7:15-23)

The biblical mandate where workers of deceit are concerned is twofold:

1. Do not hold to any erroneous doctrine or concept. The faithful are to actively contend for the faith once given and protect themselves from contagion by vigorously exposing the origins, logical fallacies, heresies, double-thinking, errors, and tactics of the enemies of Christ. Faithful Christians cannot protect themselves, their children and the Church from false teachings unless the evils surrounding them are exposed.

2.We are to have compassion and love for those who are enmeshed in false teachings with the primary objective of winning souls for whom Jesus Christ died.

The first part of the mandate is the work of apologetics. Without apologetics training faithful Christians cannot protect themselves from false teachings. Nor can those who are enmeshed in them be saved unless their disease is made known to them. Only when their disease is made known to them can they finally be converted to Jesus Christ.

In the well-researched study, "Already Gone: Why your kids will quit church and what you can do about it," Ken Ham and Britt Beamer issue a wake-up call to the Church.

Their alarming conclusions reveal why America's churches have already lost an entire generation of believers and how popular youth ministries, programs, Christian music, and attempts to make the Church attractive to the culture only makes the Church irrelevant:

"Becoming 'culturally cool' can feel like it helps for a while, but it's really just a placebo, a Band-Aid for a much deeper disease. By making our services more attractive to the younger generation (we do) nothing to solve the core issue of the epidemic. All it does is sacrifice eternal truth for short-term attractiveness, and it turns a church into an organization that is driven by the felt needs of its young consumers." (p. 109)

Conservative churches erroneously believe that if praise and worship music is contemporary, dynamic, energetic, and fits the style of the younger generation,

"...the epidemic will be stopped and young people will start flooding back into the Church. That's simply not the case. Our research showed that music is not a fundamental factor in young adults choosing to leave or stay at a church----but the preaching of God's Word is." (p. 110)

More than 80 years ago America embarked on a journey toward death that is nearing its’ final destination, leading Russell D. Moore, dean of the School of Theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary to ask,

Are we witnessing the death of of America’s Christian denominations?”

He then answers his own question:

Studies by secular and Christian organizations indicate that we are. Fewer and fewer American Christians, especially Protestants, stongly identify with a particular religious community…” (Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? Patrick J. Buchanan, pp. 35-36)

Survey after survey reveals the same thing, that 60% of the children who grow up in our churches will leave them for good once they reach the threshold of young adulthood. The empty and irrelevant churches of post-Christian Europe foreshadow the future of America. Where the Ukraine is today, America will be tomorrow.

Ham and Beemer propose an approach to curbing the epidemic among the "flock that is still under our care..."

It begins with parents, clergy, Christian educators, and youth pastors not only defending the Word but actually living the Word. We cannot be salt and light if we are no different from the surrounding culture. And we must teach creation ex nihilo and apologetics.

Secular Liberalism's Godless Theology of 'Change'

The desire to be liberated from the constraints of Christianity was the original reason for modern liberalism’s embrace of a world defined entirely by materialism—the view that there are no immaterial entities like God of the soul, but only physical entities. This embrace of materialism began as far back as the Renaissance. And the same impulse was behind the nineteenth-century enthusiasm for scientific materialism, and it remains a staple of liberalism today." (quote from Benjamin Wiker's soon to be released book, "Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Religion," benjaminwiker.com)

In his book Wiker painstakingly traces the development of contemporary secular liberalism to its roots, thereby revealing that the liberals in ascendancy in America today are,

"....the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from the beginning has been characterized by a desire to be free from the burden of Christianity...As a rebellion against Christianity, its negative goal defined its positive form: the desire to remove the church and replace it with the state gave liberalism its structure, beliefs, and goals." (ibid)

Though the seeds of secular liberalism were sown during the Renaissance, it was the growth of natural science in the 17th century that allowed it to blossom into faith in both sovereign human reason and scientific progress. But with English philosopher David Hume in the latter part of the 18th century, sovereign reason finally destroyed all certain knowledge, even of the natural world, when Hume announced that no man can know absolute truth through human reason because reason is a subjective faculty:

"...which has no necessary relation with the 'facts' we seek to know.  It is limited to tracing the relations of our ideas, which themselves are already twice removed from 'reality.'  And our senses are equally subjective, for they can never know the 'thing in itself,' but only an image of it..." ("Genesis, Creation and Early Man," Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 538)

The faculties of the human intellect have been corrupted since the fall and of necessity must be submitted to the higher things of God or fall into madness.

Russian philosopher Ivan V. Kireyevsky foresaw that sovereign reason would unleash unceasing criticism of truth, morality, Revelation, prophecy, miracles, religion, and ultimately of reason itself, thus it would inevitably devour itself. (ibid, p. 537)

When corrupted human reason becomes the standard of truth, knowledge and right and wrong, as it is throughout the West and America, in its madness it ultimately results in a theater of the absurd in which there is neither up nor down, male nor female, right nor wrong, true nor false, normal nor abnormal.

The loss of certainty however, did not stop the progressive rebellion against God but rather spurred it to progressively absorb, transform and secularize God's Revelation to man together with Christian doctrine and teaching.  So for example, as a 'scientific law of progress,' Darwin's theory of evolution was not only used to justify the rebellion but to supplant the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, or  special creation as seculars prefer to say:

"Belief in evolution is...exactly parallel to belief in special creation---both are concepts which believers know to be true but neither...has been capable of proof."  (British evolutionary biologist Prof. L. Harrison Matthews, cited by Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 541)

Another example revolves around the doctrine of God's grace.  Christianity teaches that God's grace is open to all, thus all men may share in the perfection of holiness that is only fully produced in the supernatural Kingdom of God (heaven) outside of the time/space (energy and matter) dimension.   But in its' madness secular liberalism imagines that it's materialist science and evolutionism have shut down the supernatural dimension, brought heaven to earth, supplanted Original Sin with secular 'law' (political correctness) and God's grace with state power as the instruments for perfecting man here below.

Wiker points out that prior to the Christian doctrine of grace,

"...no one would have dared think about perfecting the whole human race—a few, select individuals, a small group or clan or class of society, yes, but not the whole human race. With Christianity, God’s grace... is only fully effected in the Kingdom of God... Liberalism takes the church’s salvific mission and makes it a merely political goal, one to be achieved in this world by human power alone, a heaven brought down by force to earth, where we become the authors of our own salvation.” (ibid, benjaminwiker.com)

A third example comes to light in the knowledge that secular liberalism has undermined the church’s responsibility to declare that something is a sin. This responsibility has been given to morally-insane secular civil authorities. It is now the right of the theocratic secular state to declare what is sin.   So for instance, while abortion and homosexuality are not sins but rather politically correct secular rights or choices, to dissent against either is to be found guilty of the politically incorrect sins of hate, intolerance, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and homophobia.  Wiker notes that each of us now has the right to do whatever we want,

"...as long as it doesn’t violate the (secular) law, and we don’t bother anyone else—whatever the church might say to the contrary.” (ibid)

In the final example we see how secular liberalism has completely transformed and inverted the unchanging higher things of God:

"Thus saith the Lord: Stand ye on the ways, and see and ask for the old paths which is the good way, and walk ye in it: and you shall find refreshment for your souls. And they said: we will not walk." Jeremiah 6:16

Whereas our theocratic state exhorts us to seek change the prophet exhorts us to seek the old unchanging paths; the paths of righteousness and holiness which from of old,

"...Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and others, walked in, and follow them; and the way of salvation by Christ, which, though called a new way, Hebrews 10:20, yet is not newly found out, for it was contrived in eternity; nor newly revealed, for it was made known to Adam and Eve immediately after the fall; nor newly made use of, for all the Old Testament saints were saved by the same grace of Christ, and justified by his righteousness, and their sins pardoned through his blood, and expiated by his sacrifice, as New Testament saints; only of late, or in these last days, it has been more clearly made known; otherwise there is but one way of salvation; there never was any other, nor never will be; inquire therefore for this old path, which all true believers have trodden in..." (Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible)

Through its' primary doctrine evolution, secular liberalism has introduced a whole new scale of inverted values grounded in the first instance, on the idea that everything in nature is the fruit of a constantly evolving process of upward growth (change) rather than the original creation of God, and in the second, that in a constantly evolving (changing) world, perfection is obviously somewhere in the future.

Evolutionist J.H. Randall, Jr., comments:

"...for us the desirable is identified...with the latter end of the process of (evolutionary) development, and our terms of praise are 'modern,' 'up-to-date,' 'advanced,' 'progressive'... We had rather be modernists and progressives than sound reasoners."  (Genesis, Creations, and Early Man, pp. 542-543)

The extent to which the Western and American mind has been contaminated by secular liberalism's evolutionary thinking is seen by the fact that today's popular catch-phrases, even among Christians who ought to know better, are 'change,' 'contemporary,' and 'going forward.'   

Indeed, Obama had merely to repeatedly mutter the mantras "change" and "going forward"  to be elevated, not once but twice, to the highest office in the land.

So complete has the contamination and transformation of Western and American consciousness been that secular liberalism has successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism.  With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, it is now believed, even by many Christian theologians, that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection. Self-perfecting man no longer needs the grace of God as the idea of evolution means he can perfect himself, and perhaps even attain god-hood.

Secular liberalism is the fruit of apostasy, thus all who step out into its' seductive vortex of change will not progress upward toward perfection but rather swirl ever downward in a spiraling vortex issuing into outer darkness.....hell.
