Why Are Americans Voting for a Mouthy, Junk-Yard Dog Like Trump?

In "Donald Trump is Shocking, Vulgar, and Right,"  Tucker Carlson asks his readers, "when was the last time you stopped yourself from saying something you believed to be true for fear of being punished or criticized for saying it?"  If you live in America, it probably hasn’t been long:

"That’s not just a talking point about political correctness. It’s the central problem with our national conversation, the main reason our debates are so stilted and useless. You can’t fix a problem if you don’t have the words to describe it. You can’t even think about it clearly."   ("Donald Trump is Shocking, Vulgar, and Right,“ politico.com)

After more than fifty years of having it pounded into our heads by those who love darkness, lies and evil that unchanging truth and evil do not exist, the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos leave many if not most Americans without the right words to express their shock and revulsion.  Evil however, is an appropriate descriptor.  

Planned Parenthood butchers either skillfully crush unborn living babies in order to behead and cannibalize them for their body parts or as we now learn, kill them upon birth for the same barbaric purposes.  This is evil rationalized and justified by wicked liars as "scientific research" a "woman's choice" and "family planning."    Similarly, much of what passes today for 'free speech' is lies, shameless bragging, ingratitude, hate, vulgarity, contempt, resentment, envy , malice and death-wishing rationalized and justified by morally unfettered barbarians as 'free speech.' 

According to Carlson, this depressing state of affairs made Trump’s political career, and, "my dear fellow Republicans, he's all your fault:"

" In a country where almost everyone in public life lies reflexively, it’s thrilling to hear someone say what he really thinks, even if you believe he’s wrong. It’s especially exciting when you suspect he’s right, " despite that Christians largely know that Trumps' brand of Christianity is "a ludicrous imitation of a faithful Christian, the least holy roller ever."

So why are decent, law-abiding Americans and faithful Christians overwhelmingly supporting a fiery, mouthy, junk-yard dog like Trump? Though there is no one-size-fits-all answer, for many supporters, particularly those who are informed, it is obvious that those who love the dark rather than the Light are parasitic destroyers fast-tracking America into hell, thus in desperation they see in Trump someone who might save our nation from some or all of the following pathologies:

1.Growing secularization (subjectivist paganism) proceeding hand in hand with the ‘evolutionising’ of the culture

2. A rise in militant—atheism and a growing intolerance of the Bible’s account of Creation, the two sexes, God ordained marriage, the Fall, the Flood, immutable truth, moral absolutes, Christian holidays, Ten Commandment monuments, cemetery crosses, private property, our right to defend ourselves from the evil intentioned, the founders and even the Constitution

3.  Widespread acceptance of sodomy, lesbianism, transgender

4. Culture wide embrace of a man-centered morality (subjectivism/political correctness) that is in opposition to Christianity and rationalizes the persecution, imprisonment, and impoverishment of Christians

5. With the disappearance of Biblical ethics like the sanctity of human life we witness the ongoing consequences relating to the dehumanization of humans and subsequent cheapening of human life in abortion, the sexualization and perversion of children, embryonic stem cell research and various forms of euthanasia.

All of this unfolding evil leads some evangelicals such as Phyllis Schlafly and mega-church pastor Robert Jeffress  to endorse Trump because they believe he is Americas' last best hope.  Others see in him a modern Cyrus, raised up by God to restore our nation.  In summation, Carlson believes they’re looking for,

 "a bodyguard, someone to shield them from mounting (and real) threats to their freedom of speech and worship. Trump fits that role nicely, better in fact than many church-going Republicans. For eight years, there was a born-again in the White House. How’d that work out for Christians, here and in Iraq?"

Though Obama claims to be Christian, his liberal (apostate) brand does not qualify as the real thing.   Moreover, liberal 'Christianity' and other such man-and-world centered permutations are symptoms of the much larger apostasy and spiritual disease afflicting and killing our society, and by extension, why America increasingly resembles the spiritual vacuum that is the now-dead Christendom.   Similar to that dead zone, America is a roiling sea of darkness dotted here and there by very small islands of Light.  No man--no not Trump either--- can make great an apostatizing, spiritually diseased and dying society in which a majority of its citizens are slaves to appetites.  Without a Ninevah-style repentance and turning back to the Lord, it seems more likely that Trump will prove to be another tin-pot dictator rather than a Cyrus.    Only time will tell.

In Progressive "Bizarro" America You May Be A Right-Wing Extremist If....

David Kupelians' latest best-seller, "The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture," chronicles the decline and fall of America and shows that it was deliberately orchestrated by progressives.  Compared with the decent, morally ordered, child and family-friendly nation it once was, today's progressive dominated America is a different country altogether said Kupelian:

"(it is) deeply and angrily divided, unable to deal with crises foreign or domestic, the world's greatest debtor nation with 50 million people on food stamps, rampant divorce and family breakdown, unprecedented sexual anarchy with 110 million with STDs, almost 60 million abusing alcohol, and over 70 million taking mood-altering drugs.  On so many levels, America is becoming ever more "bizarre"---diametrically opposed to logic and common sense.  Although America's bizarro transformation has been in progress for decades, it burst into full bloom in the age of Obama. " (p. 10)

Here's how retired Marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North describes bizarro America, where according to the U.S. government North is an an extremist because:

" I am a Christian and meet regularly with other Christians to study Gods word.  My faith convinces me the prophecies in the Holy Bible are true. I believe in the sanctity of life, oppose abortion and want to preserve marriage as the union of a man and woman.  I am a veteran with skills and knowledge from military training and combat.  I own several firearms, frequently shoot them, buy ammunition and consider efforts to infringe on my Second Amendment rights to be wrong and unconstitutional. I frequently support the sovereignty of the United States, am deeply concerned about our economy, increasingly higher taxes, illegal immigration, soaring unemployment and actions by our government that will bury my children beneath a mountain of debt.  Apparently, all this makes me a 'right-wing extremist.'  At least that's what it says in the April 7, 2009 'assessment' issued by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security."  (ibid, pp. 14-15)

So just what is progressivism and/or liberalism and leftism?   In a succinct definition actor Jon Voight said,

"Progressive' is Very Devious Term--Created as Substitute for 'Communist"

Having rejected the Holy Trinity and the religious heritage of our civilization, progressives embrace instead a new order of beliefs of which Communism and Socialism are logical expressions.  A new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the existing culture must be completely destroyed.

And what is Communism?  Using the former Soviet Union as an example, early Conservative intellectual Frank Meyers describes it as, "The state form taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world."    Communism or scientific materialism is "the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries."  It is materialist scientism, of which,

"Communism is the culminating hubris of the Promethean man who reaches out for the world and means to remake creation.  It is scientism gone political." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

Progressivism is evolutionary scientism, a revamped and revised nature religion that like all such religions past and present,

"changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."  Romans 1:25

Progressivism zealously promotes evolutionary scientism as a sacred secular (atheist) religion, as Michael Ruse, professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph, Canada makes clear:

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

 For progressives and like-minded travelers, evolution is an anti-creation religion, a "full-fledged alternative to Christianity." It is promulgated by contemporary Western heirs of a rebellion against our Heavenly Father that emerged out of the Renaissance giving birth to an occult intelligentsia, open intercourse with fallen angels, astral plane travels, and Illuminism, an occult nature mystery religion that teaches that man,

"...can evolve, through initiatory steps, into a god state himself." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies," William Still, p. 27)

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

Illuminist Inspired Communism

In the heart of Christendom during the time of the Renaissance the "alternative religion" originally took the form of occult pantheist humanism bespeaking evolution of divine spark or spirit to higher and higher states of god-consciousness. Later on another form arose: evolutionary secular (materialist) humanism. While the former was blatantly occult and spiritually pagan, the latter was essentially a de-spiritualized but nevertheless arcane version of the former falsely presenting itself as demonstrable empirical science to masses of hopeless people:

"Reason had died sometime before 1865.... After the Age of Reason came the Age of the Irrational...." Bereft of assurances of immortality after so great an attack on biblical revelation masses of hopeless people were, "begging for a revelation which was scientifically demonstrable."    (The Occult Underground, James Webb)

Karl Marx's Illuminist-inspired messianic Communism was advertised as the longed-for "scientifically demonstrable" revelation. However, Marx's "scientifically demonstrable" dialectical-materialism (revitalized pagan animism) is merely a de-spiritualized version of Hegel's occult pantheist dialectic system. Master-magician G.W.F. Hegel was an important member of the occult intelligentsia. He closely studied ancient wisdom traditions including Egyptian Hermetic magic and Babylonian Kabala as well as mesmerism, psychic phenomena, dowsing, precognition, and sorcery. He professed belief in a pantheistic Earth Spirit, and informally aligned himself with Hermetic societies, anti-Christian God Freemasons, and the pantheist Rosicrucian's. (Hegel and the Hermetic Tradition, Glenn Alexander Magee, 2001)

Enrico Ferri (1856-1926) provides an example of occult magic science (pagan animism) parading as empirical science. A prominent socialist of his day and an Italian criminologist who for many years was the editor of Avanti, a socialist daily, Ferri wrote of the animated (evolving) divine miracle-producing energies substituted for miracles and divinity in "Socialism and Religious Beliefs." Ferri confessed:

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

In another example of occult pagan magic science disguised as empirical science, Gustav Wetter expounds on the magical 'mental' and 'divine' properties animating and informing nonliving matter and dialectic:

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

"Bizarro" Progressivism

John Taylor Gatto, former New York State and New York City Teacher of the Year, meticulously tracked the rise of America's destructive progressive intelligentsia together with the potent interconnected shadow-government they have created to radically reshape the Western and American consciousness.  In his book, "The Underground History of American Education" Gatto points to the progressive Fabian socialist utopians as one of the most powerfully effective revolutionary 'change-making' organizations and notes that,

"...it would not be too far out of line to call the twentieth century the Fabian century." (Gatto, p. 178)

What 'scientific' secular-atheists aspired to be in completely reordering Christian-based Western society and the souls of men, 20th century Fabians actually were. Much if not most of the madness, apostasy, wild sexual anarchy, chaos and all else that has gone so horribly wrong here in America is attributable to the Fabians.

The first Fabians had almost all been lapsed Anglicans from Evangelical homes who became dignitaries in the Church of England:

"There was a Christian fringe to the London socialism of the eighties, but this too was Anglican. The Christian Socialists came together in Stewart Headlam's Guild of St. Matthew and the Land Reform Union; and the more respectable Christian Social Union, formed in 1889 – seeking in Fabian style to permeate the Anglican Church – soon attracted more than two thousand clerical members. Dissenting clergymen too began to find a place in the Fabian Society and the London Progressives, while Unitarian churches and centres like Stanton Coit's Ethical Church provided a meeting place for believers and idealist agnostics...Socialism was for all of them, the new Evangelism." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, p. 18)

The failure of Anglican hierarchy to repudiate apostatizing Biblical critics and radical freethinkers scandalized faithful, orthodox Evangelicals whose outraged response was considered reactionary by the intellectually arrogant scholarly community. In 1861, Benjamin Jowett and six liberal Churchmen published a volume entitled Essays and Reviews in which they expressed alarm lest,

"...the majority of Churchmen, by holding fast the narrow, fundamental beliefs, should estrange themselves more and more from contemporary thought." (The Founders of Psychical Research, Alan Gauld, p. 49)

Jowett himself held that, "Scripture must be interpreted like any other book..."

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

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

Gauld records the rapid decline in faith among younger Cambridge men:

"Skepticism based on science flowed into and reinforced the older stream of doubt stemming from historical and ethical considerations. Their joint effect may be traced in the fact that whilst the outstanding Cambridge men of the 1840's...all took Orders (three of them becoming great clerical headmasters and six bishops), the outstanding Cambridge intellectuals of the 1870's – the Trinity group centring on Henry Sidgwick and Henry Jackson and including Frederic Myers, G. W. and A. J. Balfour, Walter Leaf, Edmund Gurney, Arthur Verrall, F. W. Maitland, Henry Butcher and George Prothero – tended towards agnosticism or hesitant Deism." (Gauld, p. 64)

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

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

The progenitor of the socialist Fabian Society was the Cambridge University spiritist group, the Ghost Society, founded in 1851. The Ghost Society also spawned the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) founded in 1887:

"Council Members and Honorary Members of the SPR included a past Prime Minister (William Gladstone)...and a future Prime Minister (Arthur Balfour)...2 bishops; and Tennyson and Ruskin, two of the outstanding literary figures of the day (as well as) Lewis Carroll (and) a surprising number of titled persons." (Gauld, p. 140)

Having conceptually murdered the God of Revelation, supposedly liberated their souls from Him, closed the way to Heaven, and opened themselves to forces of darkness, Fabians sought power here below, thus the over-riding interest of the S.P.R. was the spirit realm. In search of power they conducted scientific research into phenomena such as mesmeric trance, telepathy, clairvoyance, apparitions, haunted houses, séances, and all aspects of mediumism, or contact with spirits, to determine the scientific laws of physical spiritualistic phenomena.

By the early 20th century, the materialist Sigmund Freud and heavily demonized Gnostic occultist Carl Jung were SPR Corresponding Members. Both men contributed to the S.P.R. Journal of Proceedings.

In an expose of Jung's occult tendencies Richard Noll writes:

"With the founding of the Society for Psychical Research in England in 1882, and the copious publications of its investigators, new models of the unconscious mind emerged. The most respected model was that of the 'subliminal self' by Frederick Myers (1843-1901), the 'mytho-poetic' (myth-making) function of which resembles Jung's later conception of a collective unconscious. Jung read widely in the literature of psychical research in medical school and his 1902 dissertation cites the work of Myers and others in this school." (Noll, The Jung Cult, pp. 31-2)

Above all else, revolutionary/evolutionary socialist organizations such as the Fabians were anti-supernatural, anti-morality,  anti-counter-establishment, anti-tradition, pan-sexual liberationists consisting of committed Darwinian Gnostic pagan elitists who were intolerant of the Holy God in three Persons, man as His spiritual image bearer, and every vestige of authority ranging from immutable Truth, Moral Law, sexual ethics, and the traditional family to free market systems, individual liberties, and cumbersome processes of Americas' Constitutional Republic. What they desired was a new order ruled by a superior caste.

Fabianism took its name from Roman general Fabius Cunctator who finally defeated Hannibal by methodically chipping away at his patience and will to win, an idea adopted by Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci who called for a long, slow, stealthy march through Western and American mind and culture-shaping institutions. In this way, Christian foundations would be undermined and destroyed, minds captured, souls re-engineered and institutions re-ordered. Gatto writes that for Fabianists, Darwin was their ticket to power. He was the 'weird holy man' they adored,

"...the man who gave them a theory inspirationally equal to god-theory, around which a new organization of society could be justified." (p. 180)

To realize the tremendous task Fabian progressives assigned themselves, Gatto writes that we,

"...need to reflect...on Darwin's shattering books, 'The Origin of Species' (1859) and 'The Descent of Man' (1871), each arguing in its own way that....children are (the evolved product of) their race of origin, some 'favored'...some not" (Gatto, p. 179)

Together, Darwin's books issued a "do what thou will" license to America's progressive ruling caste to justify moral relativism, the imposition of evolutionary teaching, forced schooling, perverse sex education, and much more, all destructive of America's traditional Christian-based Republic. Gatto writes that from an evolutionary standpoint, our government controlled schools,

"...are the indoctrination phase of a gigantic breeding experiment...Many (children are genetically) a racial menace (while) the rest...thought of as soldiers in genetic combat, the moral equivalent of war....For governments, children could no longer be considered individuals but were regarded as categories, rungs on a biological ladder. Evolutionary science pronounced the majority useless mouths waiting for nature to dispense with entirely." (Gatto, p. 179)

Whereas Christian salvation was formerly held to be a matter between Jesus Christ the Word Incarnate and the individual and the aim of Christian-based Europe and America had for centuries been fixed on the work of winning liberties for the individual against the oppressive State, the Age of Darwin brought an end to all of this. By the turn of the century the Fabian program based in occult science, ancient wisdom traditions, revelations from Transcended Masters (fallen angels) and Darwinism was spreading quickly through the best colleges and universities capturing the minds of America's best and brightest issuing in the view that rights, privileges, wealth and resources are the preserve of the superior caste in control of an omniscient mystical god-State together with salvation as a pantheist conception based in ideas of collectivity (monism).

Secular historians of the nineteenth century agree that the dominant figures in the occult spiritist/socialist movements were mainly lapsed Evangelicals and Anglican clergymen preceded by Renaissance occultists. The onslaught of skepticism, atheism, agnosticism, higher Biblical criticism and dehistorization of the Genesis account together with moral relativism, Darwinism and occult New Age spirituality assaulting the tattered foundations of our Republic were inspired by Protestant/Evangelical heresy together with an unhealthy interest in spiritism. Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie explain this strange anomaly:

"The lesson instilled by Evangelical parents had been given a secular form. Evolution or what (Sidney) Webb called Zeitgeist, had taken the place of Providence, yet what Webb described as 'blind social forces'...which went on inexorably working out social salvation' did not relieve men of their moral responsibility. Victorian religion had taught that a belief in God's purposes must be accompanied by an effort to discern and advance them. Socialists who substituted a secular religion for the faith of their youth felt the same compulsion." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, p. 115-116)

By the mid 1880's the spirit of apostasy into relativism, occult magic, spiritism, nature worship and evolutionary thinking at work within lapsed Evangelicals and Anglicans was already creeping into the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Church. Today Christendom is dead and the lie of Romans 1:25 is bringing our Republic to ruin while steadily injecting its' abominations into the whole body of the humanized American Church and casting faithful orthodox Christians and all decent, law-abiding Americans as "right-wing extremists.". All of this is aided and abetted by priestly falsifiers of the Revealed Word who have penetrated the Church with a mist of lies resulting in narcissistic self-affirmation, emotional ecstasy, moral relativism, acceptance of evolutionary philosophy and other ancient wisdom traditions along with liberation from sin and hell,

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

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

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

Tearing Down the Ten Commandments: Latest Success of Progressive Wrecking Crews

Described by Alexis de Tocqueville as the freest most enlightened civilization in history, America was firmly founded on Judeo-Christian principles. John Adams (1735-1862), signer of the Declaration of Independence, main author of the Constitution of Massachusetts in 1780, Vice-President under George Washington, and 2nd President of the United States, concurs:

"The general principles on which the Fathers achieved independence, were...the general Principles of Christianity...(1813, in a letter to Thomas Jefferson) Religion and Virtue are the only foundations...of republicanism and of all free government..." (summit.org)

As early as 1896 however, Progressive intellectuals had begun the work of demolishing America's founding Biblical-based worldview. Viewing themselves as enlightened, scientific, and elite, the West's Progressives had "rejected the religious roots" of its own civilization for a "new order of beliefs" of which neo-pagan Communism/Socialism (collectivism) was "one logical expression." (George H. Nash, The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, p. 253)

In the realm of religion for example, Progressive theologian Walter Rauschenbusch, leader of the Social Gospel movement, used the pulpit to preach a pantheistic, anti-individual liberty, pro-collectivist message. "Individualism means tyranny," sermonized Rauschenbusch, by which he meant that 'oneness' with nature (pantheism) brings salvation through a divinized God-State controlled by Progressive 'god men.' In this morally inverted view, moral good is submission to Progressive dictates while moral evil is dissent against it.

This morally-demented nonsense, writes Jonah Goldberg in his book "Liberal Fascism," laid the groundwork for the equally morally insane preachments proclaimed decades later by Marxist Frankfurt School intellectuals such as Herbert Marcuse in the 1960s — 'oppressive freedom,' 'repressive tolerance,' 'defensive violence.' (Liberal Fascism, p. 86-87)

By the time of Pres. Woodrow Wilson's regime, Progressive intellectuals had speculatively replaced the living Creator with a pantheistic 'ineffable force' that works its black-magic 'inversion of morality and reality' through Darwinian evolution-magic. By waving the wizard's wand of evolution-magic over our Constitution — presto! — it 'came to life,' and now 'lives, breathes, and evolves.' Having unshackled themselves from transcendent Moral Law Progressives saw themselves as god-men possessing a divine writ from the divinized ineffable force of nature (spoken of in public as God) for organized cruelty, immorality, lying, power-grabbing, and for furthering their work of destroying America's worldview foundations. Those who stood in the way of 'progress,' that is, the defenders of America's founding worldview and Constitutional Republic, were demonized as 'other,' because says Goldberg, "they were by their very existence blocking the will to power that gave the mob and the avante garde...their reason for existence." (p. 85)

The world's first totalitarian regime was not Soviet Russia nor Italy under Mussolini. Neither was it Hitler's Nazi Germany. No, it was Progressive Fascist America under the Wilson regime, reveals Goldberg. Like Mussolini and Hitler who had jack-booted activist-enforcers at their beck and call, so too did Wilson. In Italy they were called Fascists. In Germany they were called National Socialists. In America, Wilson's badge-carrying goons were called progressives.

Nothing has changed, for today, Obama's goon squad activists are called progressives and/or liberals, and when they're not lying (which is always), they're actively promoting sin as "rights," stirring up hatred, fomenting riots, championing sodomy, promoting abortion as 'choice', revising our history, dumbing down Americans and erasing every vestige of the "general Principles of Christianity... on which the Fathers achieved independence:"

"A granite monument of the Ten Commandments that has sparked controversy since its installation on the Oklahoma Capitol grounds was being removed and will be transported to a private conservative think tank for storage. A contractor the state hired began removing the monument shortly after 10:30 p.m. Monday. The work comes after the Oklahoma Supreme Court's June decision that the display violates a state constitutional prohibition on the use of public property to support "any sect, church, denomination or system of religion." (Workers removing Ten Commandments from Oklahoma Capitol, Sean Murphy, actionnewsjax.com)

As Progressive wrecking-crews finish their work of demolishing what yet remains of our Christian-based society the Obama Administration is working quickly with the United Nations in several major American cities to set up police force that would span the globe:

"The global police force would be called the "Strong Cities Network” and would ostensibly be a force to fight domestic and International terrorism."   (AG Announces Global Police Force To Patrol American Cities, Robert Gehl, The Federalist Papers Project)

Who are "domestic terrorists"?  According to Progressives and their howling goon squads, they are the NRA, all defenders of the Constitution, the Holy Trinity, Ten Commandments, life, traditional marriage, private property, self-defense, national borders, and in short, all of the "general principles on which the Fathers achieved independence."

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

Knowing the truth of Milton's keen insight, for more than sixty years Progressives have been deliberately unleashing the devil within Americans by way of the promotion of sin.  It was Karl Marx’s anarchist comrade Bakunin who provided the concrete program of psychological seduction and manipulation slavishly followed by America’s Progressives for this evil purpose.  It begins with temptation to sin and ends with destruction and death:

"In this revolution we will have to awaken the Devil in the people, to stir up basest passions.  Our mission is to destroy, not edify.  The passion of destruction is a creative passion." (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 27)

Bakunin's program is an inversion and reversal of Proverbs 1:10:

My son, if sinners shall entice thee, consent not to them."  

Evan Sayet affirms that in pursuit of their Godless fantasy, Progressive "elites" throughout Hollywood and mediatogether with influential Progressives situated within the White House, Congress, academia, seminaries, Pentagon, and 'justice' institutions actively promote evil.  Thus,

"…..sin is their trade and business, and the constant course of their lives" as is actively persuading children "to join with them in the sins they are addicted unto, and are continually employed in…"   (Evan Sayet, The Kindergarten of Evil, evansayet.com)

The active promotion of evil has thus far produced a degenerate society where all moral barriers in the way of unfettered self-expression and empowerment of self as arbiter of politically correct social justice have been removed with virtually no outcry from the Christian Church. 

The responsibility of America’s Christian Church is to be true salt and light---a morally wholesome, edifying, strengthening, spiritually uplifting influence---but in the religious order devilish Progressivism has successfully infiltrated, perverted, and dumbed-down increasing numbers of seminaries and churches over the entire denominational spectrum.  So rather than standing for the Revealed Word and against sin and evil, these institutions either adopt a passive, silent stance or actively embrace evolutionary science, sin and our seeker-sensitive paganized culture in the name of filling pews and coffers.   With respect to this, David Kupelian writes:

"Christianity---the deepest, most meaningful and awe-inspiring religion ever, the magnificent force behind Western civilization, and the transcendent hope of mankind's future---has been dumbed-down (it has become) a caricature, a comic-book religion (that produces) Christians who believe they have a ticket to heaven, and nothing else really matters...They live lives of shallowness and selfishness, of petty emotions and jealousies, of gossip and escape, of ego and pride, and sometimes of gross corruption and treachery.  The worst of them are prideful, selfish, and brazen....they drive other people crazy (and away from real Christianity) with their hypocrisy.  Such people, whether in family or business relationships (or) church leaders (or) leaders of nations, sow confusion, rebellion, and suffering everywhere they go." (Marketing of Evil, Kupelian, p. 234)  

Kupelian argues that the marketing of evil succeeds because the beguiling lies and the temptations to sin that Progressives seduce us with, appeal to the fallen, selfish part of us that we want to embrace, thus within vast numbers of Americans---including large numbers of those who call themselves Christians---Progressives are successfully awakening the Devil, stirring up the basest passions.

Evan Sayet sees where this will end: in widespread malevolent idiocy resulting in sadistic brutality, murder, breakdown and implosion of America followed by brutal tyranny.

This will surely happen unless the Christian Church repents of the life of pride, self-serving, pleasure-seeking, and egotism.

Malignant Narcissism, Ressentiment and the Wrath of God


Pride (narcissism) is the devil's favorite sin. In his Commentary on Psalm 18/2, 15,  St. Augustine records that pride turned Lucifer into Satan and banned him eternally from heaven. It causes the soul to rebel against God and wander off into the darkness. This vice is thus no slight evil:
 
"It makes those infected with it refuse to bow their necks to the yoke of Christ while they harness themselves all the more tightly to the bondage of sin."
 
The Decalogue shows that the beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over the Holy Trinity and neighbor). The wicked will of the proud man is not in submission to the Trinity but autonomous self.  Having made an idol out of himself as increasing numbers of narcissistic Americans and in particular Leftist pagans and their liberal acolytes have done, the narcissist assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why preference for 'self' leads to contempt for truth, law (i.e.,the Ten Commandments and Constitution), wisdom, norms, authority, standards, rules, institutions and other people and their families, property, and wealth.   As a whole, Scripture combines pride with covetousness, greed, malice, hatred, and jealousy into a single concept--ressentiment--- that is a manifestation of idolatry of self issuing in hatred of the Holy God and one's brother, which means that there can be no love whatsoever where there is envy (ressentiment) and hatred in one's heart. 
 
Ressentiment is the passion which causes evil.  It is the father of death,
 
"... the first entrance for sin, the root of wickedness, the birth of sorrow, the mother of misfortune, the basis of disobedience, the beginning of shame. Envy banishes us from paradise....Envy made Joseph a slave. Envy is the death-dealing sting, the hidden weapon, the sickness of nature, the bitter poison, the self-willed emaciation, the bitter dart, the nail of the soul, the fire in the heart, the flame burning on the inside..." (Life of Moses, Gregory of Nyssa, quoted in Death by Envy, Fr. George R.A. Aquaro, p. 74)
 
In his first edition dictionary, "The American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828" Noah Webster defines ressentiment, or what he simply identifies as envy as,
 
"...pain, uneasiness, mortification or discontent excited by the sight of another's superiority (often spiritual)or success, accompanied by some degree of hatred or malignity, often or usually with a desire or an effort to depreciate the person, and with pleasure at seeing him depressed; malice, malignity, invidiousness, ill will."
 
According to Webster, malice is,

"extreme enmity of heart; malevolence; a disposition to injure others...from mere personal gratification or from a spirit of revenge."
 
Malice is inseparable from the following:
 
1. Malevolence: having an evil disposition towards another or others; wishing evil to others....a malevolent heart rejoices in the misfortune of others

2. Malign: to regard with envy or malice; to treat with extreme enmity; to injure maliciously
 
3. Malignant: malicious; having extreme malevolence; bitter enmity; malice

 

 Oozing malice, Bill Maher unwittingly reveals his evil disposition in his malevolent description of Christianity as a,

 “...sexist, homophobic, magic act that’s been used to justify everything from genital mutilation to genocide..." “You want to raise the tax on tobacco so kids don’t get cancer? Okay, but let’s put one on Sunday school so they don’t get stupid.”  (Churches Should Pay Taxes for Making Children ‘Stupid’, zionica.com, April 19, 2016)

In his seminal work, "Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture," Herbert Schlossberg, a Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and leading scholar on the relationship between Christianity and the societies in which it has existed, writes that ressentiment begins with perceived injury occasioned by envy toward and covetousness of the spiritual and/or temporal possessions or qualities possessed by another person.  If the perception is not either sublimated,
 
 "...or assuaged by the doing of some injury to the object of the feeling, the result is a persistent mental condition, stemming from the repression of emotions that are not acceptable when openly expressed.  The result is hatred and the impulse to spite and to say things that detract from the other's worth." (p. 51)
 
Malevolence, or what Schlossberg describes as Schadenfreude, is rejoicing at another person's suffering, thus vengeance is the principle manifestation of ressentiment.
 
Ressentiment has its origin in the tendency to make comparisons between the attributes of another and one's own attributes such as wealth, popularity, appearance, intelligence, success, personality, position, gender (straight male, straight female), children, and friends, for example.  Any perceived superior difference is enough to set the pathology in motion.  Thus ressentiment whispers continually:
 
"I can forgive everything, but not that you are---that you are what you are----that I am not what you are---indeed that I am not you."    (Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior, Helmut Schoeck, ibid, Schlossberg, p. 52)
 
The envied other's very existence is a reproach, 
 
"When heaven with such parts blest him, have I not reason to detest him?" is a genuine and natural expression of the human mind.  The man who writes as we cannot write, who speaks as we cannot speak, labors as we cannot labor, thrives as we cannot thrive, has accumulated on his person all the offenses of which man can be guilty.  Down with him! Why cumbereth he the ground?" (Schoeck)
 
Ressentiment as Progressive Leftism's Politics of Evil
 
"Political Ponerology" is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej M. £obaczewski to an interdisciplinary study of the founders (i.e., Karl Marx) and supporters of 20th century totalitarian political regimes. His study utilizes data from psychology, sociology, philosophy, and history to account for the propagation of man's inhumanity to man through such phenomena as terrorism, aggressive war, ethnic cleansing, ostracism, genocide, and despotism:

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

"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)

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

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

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

"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)
 
Financed by Western Progressives, a coalition of God-hating, ressentiment fueled atheist pagan Jews (Bolsheviks) and atheist pagan Gentiles (Marxist Communists) systematically stole the personal property of Russians. Fueled by malevolence, they sexually perverted the children of their victims and conditioned them to hate the Trinity butJesus Christ God Incarnate in particular, as well as their own parents, the Christian church, priests, and their homeland, its' culture and traditions. They undermined and destroyed the traditional family, unleashed a holocaust of abortion, homosexualized culture, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of more than sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:

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

"Persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism – mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Bolshevism – is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history....Attempts at "killing the soul" started only months after the Revolution of 1917." Persecution and martyrdom was, "several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed. It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime." (New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com)

 Though Lobaczewski's study is a clinically accurate description of the nature of human evil it falls into the error of attributing evil to biological causes rather than the sin nature of man. Despite this failing, Political Ponerology is a shocking account of large scale evil super-heated by hatred of the Holy God and burning with ressentiment and will to power – or what Lobaczewski terms 'ponerogenic processes' that overtook modern Russia and have overtaken whole societies and nations since time immemorial.
 
Ressentiment has played a part in human dynamics ever since the Evil One persuaded the envy-bitten Cain to murder his brother Abel, Judas to betray Jesus Christ, the Pharisees to crucify Him, and Saul to suddenly throw his spear at David in a murderous attempt at pinning him to a wall. (1 Sam. 18:11) In fact, the envy-bitten Saul tried three times to kill David with a javelin (1 Sam. 18:10-11, 19: 9-10) and to bring about David's death by the Philistines. (1 Sam. 18:25)

After ancient Greece had been overtaken by a malevolent spirit of ressentiment, as is happening very quickly in America, an egalitarian, collectivist, or leveling impulse served to help relieve a malicious, envy-torn culture by leveling all people down to the lowest common denominator.   Ressentiment, or political correctness enforced by hate crime laws in modern terminology, was enforced by character destruction and the threat of ostracism:

"...one had to watch not only the malevolent actions of envious friends and enemies, but the very real threat of ostracism by the democratic community. Philanthropy had much less to do with (love of man) as it had with....avoiding other people's phthonos of one's success." (Death by Envy, p. 14)

Today increasing numbers of Americans at every level of society, on both left and right, Christian and non-Christian, are controlled by their passions unfettered from the restraint of transcendent immutable Truth and Moral Law. Adding to the problem are morally relative, culturally relevant church models attended by thousands of Americans that cater to felt-needs and self-indulgent emotional feel-goodism (2 Tim. 4: 1-220). Thus America is "a nation ruled by its passions," said Reb Bradley, author of "Born Liberal Raised Right." This is why heinous acts,

"...of casual disregard for life, unheard of fifty years ago, have become a familiar item on the evening news; students killing classmates, children murdering their playmates....these gruesome crimes are merely symptomatic of a breakdown of moral fiber..." (ibid, pp. 2-3)

Worse, ressentiment oozes from the pores of America's God-hating, self-worshipping Progressive pagan  ruling class, and in particular, our pro-cross dressing, pro-sodomy, pro-abortion, pro-every-dysfunctional-idea lending itself to the misery, impoverishment, degradation, humiliation and suffering of middle class Americans.  Former President Obama's barely leashed malice fueled his publicly stated belief that DNA doesn't make people male or female but it does make white people racist.   Obama's malevolent claims were described by our equally malignant media as 'bold' rather than enmity: 

"CNN reported that Obama, during an appearance on a comedy show, said “the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination” exists in institutions and casts “a long shadow and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.” The host, comedian Marc Maron, has been a guest on MSNBC, the failing left-wing cable channel."  ("Obama Logic? Racism is Genetic, Gender is a Choice, Cliff Kincaid, gopusa.com, June 23, 2015

 When ressentiment has finally saturated a society's entire ruling class and its' privileged special rights groups (barbarians),  and opposition from morally convicted people has been crushed as is underway even now, then we are dealing with what Lobaczewski calls Macrosocial Evil or a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." (p. 121)

The most frightening aspect of America's descent into moral imbecility, idolatry, heresy, barbarism, ressentiment and lawlessness is that our society is being overtaken by "ponerological processes." Through the White House, State Department and other federal agencies, legislatures, media, Hollywood, courts, academia, pentagon, seminaries and even pulpits, the spirit of  ressentiment is encompassing our society, suppressing and demonizing orthodox Christians, faithful Jews and other morally informed people, and overspreading our nation with a "macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." This will lead inevitably to a tyranny of evil, persecution and martyrdom:

"The New Martyrs' example and their legacy is precious, because in this, 21st century, it will be the turn of Western Christians to experience martyrdom. In Western Europe they will be persecuted by the unholy alliance between the postmodern, Christophobic velvet totalitarianism of the therapeutic hyper-state, and a resurgent Islam which already accounts for a quarter of all newborns in France. In the United States they will be persecuted for refusing to accept the destruction of the moral foundation of the society, currently epitomized by abortion, by "gay marriage," and by the ever-expanding speech and thought codes. Instead of being thrown to the lions or sent to Siberia, the resisters will be subjected – by some monstrous mechanism devised by an ever more activist judiciary – to the mandatory "sexual diversity orientation sessions," or feminist-led pro-abortionist "right-to-choose education workshops," or "immigrant rights sensitivity training," after which the continuing refusal to recant will lead to compulsory "therapy" and forced medication. This scenario is not farfetched on either side of the Atlantic. Western Christians should be prepared for martyrdom." (ibid, Srdja Trifkovic)

In his 1974 essay, "Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations," ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn warns that the only way out for an idolatrous, ressentiment-filled people is repentance,
 
 "and the search for our own errors and sins.  We must stop blaming everyone else (and) claiming that we alone are in the right.  Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord.  Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth. "
 
Having begun the work of repentance, we will then be able to carry our Christ's command to,
 
"Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven.(Matthew 5:44-45)"
 
Without wholesale repentance and a turning back to our Lord, the wrath of God will fall upon this proud, ressentiment-fueled nation:  

"The wrath of God is a fearsome and terrifying thing. Only those who have been covered by the blood of Christ, shed for us on the cross, can be assured that God’s wrath will never fall on them. “Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through Him!” (Romans 5:9)."   (What is the biblical understanding of the wrath of God? gotquestions)

Satanism, Evolutionary Progressive Spirituality, and Goetia

The fundamental premise of contemporary Western Satanism and evolutionary Progressive spirituality is the lie first whispered to Eve in the Garden, that is, the idea of man as deity expressed by ascribing to man attributes of the personal Triune God. According to the lie, man is sovereign (morally autonomous) and characterized by the supremacy of his omniscient reason, mystical mind-powers (i.e., gnosis), and intuition. Since man stands beyond good and evil he is morally perfect.  As he is the uncreated product of evolution he is not fallen but rather evolving ever upward away from his ape ancestry toward perfection, therefore he needs no personal Savior.   Put simply, the “lie” is this:

"...you are your own god and thus possess the requisite authority, information, and wisdom to properly determine what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, nothing objective or external to you has the authority to tell you how to live your life; not other people and, certainly, not God. But, rather than become truly “enlightened,” we have become morally stupid. In America, this cultural disease has run its dark course and is now so complete that we self-destructively call good “evil” and evil “good.”  (Why Christians are Hated in America, Christian News Journal, Aug. 24, 2015)

This is rebellion and idolatry, plain and simple. And there is no greater example of the arrogance of the god delusion than Progressive spirituality. There are many modern Progressive humanist philosophies and "religions" premised on the god delusion. For example: Gnostic Marxism, Fascism, Secular Humanism, Cosmic Trans-humanism, Illumined Theosophy, Liberal theology, Satanism and global Technocracy.

Progressive spirituality is actually little more than an ungrateful, egoistic creature kicking, scratching, spitting, spewing, and throwing a tantrum while screaming at its Creator that He has it all wrong and that the so-called scientifically enlightened god-men know better, therefore refuse to allow the Lord's moral boundaries to define and restrain them.  The wicked will of egoists has replaced the Lord, truth, and virtue in America, and like a monstrous steamroller is intolerantly crushing everyone and everything in its path.

Satanism and Progressive Spirituality

Satanism is a type of humanism and between it, Progressive spirituality and the others the common denominator is the narcissistic tantrum-throwing creature in rebellion as seen in the following examples:

A. Satanists and evolutionary Progressives disavow the Fall, which in practical terms means that Lucifer never fell and is therefore not the devil. Thus Satanists foolishly claim that the devil is merely the invention of Christianity while other equally foolish Progressives and other humanists laud Lucifer as the first free thinker, the Garden's liberator of mankind, the bringer of illumination, man's genetic creator, evolution's seething energy and angel of evolution.

B. Both Satanists and Progressives are practitioners of black magic, the primary power of which is 'The Lie.' There is for example the relentless lies of propaganda, the lie that Jehovah is dead, the lie that evolution is a fact of science, the lie that man evolved from the ape, the lie that sin and hell do not exist, the lie of global change/cooling/warming/whatever works. If you believe the lies then liars have power over your will and mind.

Black magic is an ancient practice extending back into antiquity. The goal of its' practitioners was the acquisition of power over creation and over the minds of other men  by unpatterning or uncreating creation. Its methods, said J. Budziszewski, professor of government at the University of Texas and author of "What We Can't Not Know," are forms of goetia.....black magic. (p. 198)

Modern goetia is the Big Lie in practice. With respect to Satanism and Progressive spirituality it works by a process of inversion, that is, it elevates the lower order of creation, meaning the evolving universe of energy and matter, man, and Satan over the Creator God and His heavenly or supernatural realm. In practice it looks like this:

"….it is but natural…to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: “in the day ye eat thereof, ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil” – can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour….”   “And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” (brimstone was a theological improvement), and Lucifer, or “Light Bearer,” is in us: It is our Mind – our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism. Without this principle… we would be surely no better than animals” (“The Secret Doctrine,” Volume II, Helena Blavatsky, Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243)

2. The material or natural dimension over the supernatural

3. Certain highly evolved god-men and an all-powerful mystical god-state over God the Father and all other men

4.  Evolutionary cosmogonies (anti-creation accounts) over the Genesis account (creation ex nihilo); the neutrality principle (subjectivism/nihilism/deconstruction) over God's Revealed Word and eternally unchanging Moral Law;  apes and nature over the faceless masses; pantheist collectivism over individuality; meaninglessness over meaning; androgyny over the two created sexes; fluid sexual relationships over traditional marriage, death over life, evil over good, dark over light, lie over truth, unnatural over natural, disorder over order, and grey matter (brain) over spirit (mind).

This is the black magic spell cast by Gnostic Progressives, scientific materialists, God is dead theologians, and Satanists over all who believe the lies. The minds of all who reject God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, embrace evolutionary thinking (even if by default) and have either forgotten their souls or accept that they either have no souls or perhaps have just a spark or essence as modern Gnostics teach, thus their minds have been captured and locked up in the narrow, darkened confines of a psychic cage.

Other Similarities:

C. Regarding faithful, orthodox Christian theists, Anton Szander LaVey's Satanic Bible states,

 "Cursed are the gazers toward a richer life beyond the grave, for they shall perish amidst plenty. Blessed are the destroyers of false hope, for they are the true messiahs. Cursed are the god-adorers for they shall be shorn sheep."

The Humanist Manifesto II likewise declares:

"We believe that traditional dogmatic or authoritarian religions that place revelation, God, ritual or creed above human needs and experience do a disservice to the human species. As non-theists, we begin with humans not God, nature not deity."

D. With respect to immortal salvation the Satanic Bible states:

  "I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad redeemer and write over his thorn-torn brow: The true prince of evil - the king of the slaves!"

In a similar vein, the Humanist Manifesto declares:

 "Promises of immortal salvation or fear of eternal damnation are both illusory and harmful"

E. About the living God's Moral Law the Satanic Bible says:

"There is nothing inherently sacred about moral codes. Like the wooden idols of long ago, they are the work of human hands and what man has made, man can destroy!"

The autonomous evolutionary Secular Humanist can likewise unmake Moral Law, therefore,

"Ethics is autonomous and situational...."  (Humanist Manifesto II)

F. There is no heaven or hell. All that exists is the here and now, therefore said LaVey:

"I break away from all conventions that do not lead to my earthly success and happiness..." (Satanic Bible)

Aping LaVey, the Humanist Manifesto II states:

"We strive for the good life here and now."

G. With regard to man's sovereignty, LaVey declares,

 "No creed must be accepted upon authority of a "divine" nature. Religions must be put to the question. No moral dogma must be taken for granted - no standard of measurement deified."

The Humanist Manifesto similarly states:

" We reject all religious, ideological or moral codes that denigrate the individual, suppress freedom, dull intellect, dehumanize personality. In the area of sexuality, we believe that intolerant attitudes, often cultivated by orthodox religions and puritanical cultures, unduly repress sexual conduct. The right to birth control, abortion and divorce should be recognized. It also includes a recognition of an individuals right to die with dignity, euthanasia and the right to suicide."

Behind black magic (the power of the Lie) is the devil and his foot-soldiers-- hardened reprobate spirits attacking, oppressing and even trying to take possession of the mind and will of other human spirits, thus the truth about evil, said Church Father Athanasius, 

"...is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

What does the Lord have to say to evolutionary humanists and Satanists about their idolatry, defiance, rebellion, and black magic? Thus saith the Lord,

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20

Because they hate Truth and prefer lies they fall prey to and become ensnared by every lie, deception, and untruth that their kind (natural men of 2 Tim. 3: 1-5) can invent, thus their thinking becomes twisted and vain:

 “For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:21-22).

As a result of their foolishness and arrogant disdain of the things of the Holy Trinity, He gives them over to a depraved mind, "to do what ought not be to be done." (Romans 1:28)

And correspondingly,

“Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things, but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32).

The Revealed Word of God makes it clear that during the end times the Lord sends a strong delusion to all who choose not to believe the gospel of Christ. These He will condemn because they refuse to love the Truth and so be saved:

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness” (Romans 1:18) " For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).  “They have chosen their own ways, and their souls delight in their abominations; so I (the Lord) also will choose harsh treatment for them and bring upon them what they dread. For when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, no one listened. They did evil in My sight and chose what displeases Me” (Isaiah 66:3-4).

Therefore take heed, and repent before it is too late:

"Wash yourselves, make yourself clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil. Learn to do good." Isaiah 1:16-17

Planned Parenthood: Modern Aztecs from Hades

America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of mankind, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, "I am the Lord your God...I am the Truth..." and "in His own image He made them, male and female He made them.....I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures..."   Our Constitutional rights, beginning with the most important one, the right to life, flows from this seedbed, and because human beings are in the spiritual image of the Lord, throughout Christianized Western civilization there exist strict prohibitions against cannibalism and human sacrifice.

The pagan world however, has never shared Western sensibilities. Throughout history in many parts of the world, groups of people have performed unimaginably cruel human sacrifices as a way of pleasing or appeasing their gods.

For example, in 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death.

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

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

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

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

Except in method, the Mayans were no different in this regard. Inscribed stones bear witness to their practice of human sacrifice--- adult male, female and child:

"The common method for human sacrifice seems to have been for the "ah nacom" (a functionary) to extract the heart quickly, while 4 people associated with Chac, the rain/lightning god, held the struggling victim's limbs. Human sacrifices seem to have been made, as well, with arrows, by flaying, decapitation, hurling from a precipice, and throwing the victim into a limestone sinkhole."  (Human Sacrifice and the Maya, N.S. Gill, ancienthistory.about.com)

As evil as this sounds, the Maya were amateurs when it came to human sacrifice on a massive scale:

The Aztecs of Central. Mexico, many years later, once sacrificed twenty thousand people in a single ceremony to commemorate the dedication of a new temple. Then they ate them." (Maya Human Sacrifice...Say it isn't so, ambergriscaye.com)

The kind of human sacrifice practiced by the Aztecs involved the use of large stones, boulders really, against which the victims would be placed:

" The victims would be forced to lean back against the stone, causing their chests to protrude to make it easier for the pagan priests to slice open their chests, reach in, yank out a still beating heart and eat it. The hair of the priests were matted with blood, and the walls of temples themselves were soaked inside and out with human blood, as if they had been streaked and splattered with red paint. " (Planned Parenthood and the Aztecs, Bryan Fischer, OneNewsNow, Thursday, August 20, 2015)

America's Sadistic Pagans

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

So-called "scientifically enlightened" Western and American civilization is not ascending to higher and higher heights of perfection but rather plunging into murderous barbarism issuing in chaotic darkness because millionsof Americans have turned away from the Way, the Truth, and the Light.  R.C. Sproul comments:

"The need of the hour is urgent. Look around. Everyone is doing what is right in his own eyes—even many professing Christians."  Ligonier Ministries Newsletter

Throughout post-Christian America a new Gnostic-paganism has displaced the Holy Triune God, our founding Biblical worldview, immutable truth, Moral Law, and everything good, natural and life-affirming.  Claiming to be 'progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,' it declares that the Biblical God is scientifically-passé and that now every human is god or goddess and his/her/its own morals-and gender maker.  
 
 Millions of human-deities, each with their own personal truths and moralities, and multiple and ever evolving 'genders'---this is pagan polytheism issuing in idolatry and the return of human sacrifice and cannibalization of body parts on pagan altars:

We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not going to crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, I’m going to crush above, and I’m going to see if I can get it all intact….”   (Deborah Nucatola, MD, Director of Medical Services, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, July 25, 2014)

When negotiating about fetal tissue, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services talks about a “less crunchy technique” for keeping body parts intact during a partial-birth abortion. The sale price of fetal tissue, she says, “has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me,” at one point explaining “I want a Lamborghini.”  (‘Don’t Want to Lowball’ Baby Parts; Another Planned Parenthood Official on Tape, Kathryn Jean Lopez, nationalreview.com, July 21, 2015)

The release of the latest undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) shows that the pagan rituals of the Aztecs have returned from the bowels of Hades with a vengeance.  It reveals the gruesome reality that,

"... babies are born alive in Planned Parenthood abortuaries, and then laid on tables with their tiny little hearts still visibly beating in their chests. The abortionist then takes a pair scissors and cuts the face of the baby in two so that its brain can be extracted, a procedure that starts while the baby is still alive." (ibid, Fischer)

Leading stem-cell researchers believe that the evidence uncovered by CMP indicates that Planned Parenthood, in order to send fresh specimens to researchers, keeps some,

"... babies alive right up until the moment their hearts are cut out of their bodies. This is because a heart is only good for research if it can be prepped for shipping within five minutes of death." (ibid)

While America's modern Aztecs are very vocal when it comes to saving snail darters, owls, trash fish, alligators and wolves at the expense of human flourishing they generally rationalize sacrifice of unborn humans on the lie that the unborn are not human but rather clumps of uterine cells in process of evolution.    Accordingly, unborn humans are not human when being suctioned, torn apart and crushed.  However, the unborn magically transform into 'human' when their lungs, hearts, heads, and other body parts are coveted by well-funded evil-doers for research purposes.

When Philadelphia police officers raided Kermit Gosnell's charnel house they were stunned by what they saw.  Dismembered baby parts were everywhere: in milk jugs, bags, cat food cartons, and in the refrigerator next to staff lunches. In the freezer there was a fully intact 19-week-old aborted child and in the basement they found a collection of severed babies feet, lined up in jars.  (Martin Fox, National Pro-Life Alliance)

From the videos we have now learned that the standard operating procedure for Planned Parenthood is strikingly similar to Kermit Gosnell's standard operating procedure.  Like Planned Parenthood, Gosnell regularly delivered babies and then murdered them by snipping their spinal cord.  Between his procedure and Planned Parenthood's the only difference  is method.   Gosnell was ultimately charged with eight counts of murder.  One for a patient, the other seven for delivering and then murdering babies.

 Kermit Gosnell's deliberate murder of newborn babies is sadistic and evil.  But Planned Parenthood's financially lucrative murder of living babies for their brains, hearts and other parts is Constitutional and therefore perfectly legal according to the legion of godless, reprobate, pagan elites (Romans 1:25) who currently control America's levers of powers.  The godless are aided and abetted by assorted morally confused GOP jellies like Kasich who recently stated that Conservatives focus too much attention on abortion. (1) 

What America's godless elite pagans, GOP jellies, and our paganized culture and culturally relevant, morally relative church has forgotten is that whoever keeps our Lord's commandments loves Him (John 14:21) while the reverse is true for those who do not:

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbor as thyself." Luke 10:27

The end of the commandment is charity (love) from a pure heart, a good conscience and unfeigned faith. (1 Thess. 1:5) He that loves his neighbor fulfills the law for his heart is not blackened by thoughts of hate and murder:

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

The beginning of idolatry is pride (self-centeredness), which together with selfishness demonstrates preference for one's self instead of the Lord, neighbor and unwanted babies, and just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, murder is its' final result, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.

The Cross is a messenger of mankind's idolatry and murderous intentions. Therefore we are obliged to search ourselves for every bit of idolatrous self-centeredness and repent of them because,

"Look, I am coming soon! Says the Lord. My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. "Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star." (Rev. 22:12-16)

1. John Kasich: Conservatives ‘Focus too Much’ on Abortion, Dr. Susan Berry, Breitbart

America's "New" Man: Finely Tuned Automaton

In his article, “Episcopal Bishop V. Gene Robinson: Let the Demon of Chaos Reign in the Churches,”  Paul Melanson wrote in response to Robinson's open embrace of sodomy and chaos:

It was St. Peter Damian, a Doctor of the Church, who explained that the vice of sodomy “surpasses the enormity of all others,” because, “Without fail, it brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust: It leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind . . . It opens up Hell and closes the gates of Paradise . . . It is this vice that violates temperance, slays modesty, strangles chastity, and slaughters virginity . . . It defiles all things, sullies all things, pollutes all things . . . ” ("The Book of Gomorrah" cited by Melanson, La Salette Journey,  July 6, 2012)

With respect to his work of “gay” activism, Mr. Robinson said,

This is hard work, but we can do it because it is worthy work and it is Godly work” and further asserted that, “We will live to see the day that the church of Jesus Christ, in whatever form it is, will repent from what it has done to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people the way it has repented for slavery.”  (ibid)

By the inner logic of their evolutionary thinking, theologians such as Robinson are neo-pagan naturalists pretending to be Christians, hence both subjectivists (moral relativists) and nihilists who by their will to power destroy certainty in the Revealed Word by trashing the Genesis account in the name of science, evolution, and progress,  Robinson describes the progressive turmoil and divisiveness ripping apart the Episcopal and Presbyterian churches on behalf of progress, sodomy and lesbianism as “holy chaos.”   Holy chaos is infernal confusion and disorder that represents “a step forward” from the certainty that most Christians felt when it came to what God and churches thought of homosexuals.” (ibid)

The "step forward" toward affirmation of science, evolution, progress, sodomy, lesbianism and transgender is made possible by loss of certainty in the inerrancy of Scripture and what it means to be created in the spiritual image of the Triune God.

As with the West's Godless elite class pagans and mystical pantheist subjectivists, Robinson’s hatred of Jesus Christ is a very real existential atheism burning with hatred of a seemingly unjust or unmerciful God. This is a pathological spiritual state described by the prophet of nihilism, Friedrich Nietzsche. Calling himself the antichrist, Nietzsche foresaw and foretold that the death of the Christian God in the hearts of men who hate Him would usher in a “new” immorality that in its turn would usher in the Beast:

The time has come to oppose morality with immorality, to call what priests call good, evil and what they call evil, good. The time has come for the transvaluation of all values.” (Thus Spake Zarathustra, p. 144).

The assault against the Holy Triune God that began during the Renaissance gained speed and force with the philosophical materialist implications of Darwinian theory.  The idea that humans magically 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 an atheistic-mindset to be declared a scientifically supported reality.
 
Karl Marx's exuberance for Darwin's idea prompted him to consider dedicating his Das Kapital to Darwin, an honor which Darwin declined.   Marx was a materialist, hence the rationale behind his invitation to Darwin was that he saw howDarwin's materialist theory provided the scientific framework to support his economic infrastructure on which he could build his godless communist utopia.  
 
Darwin's materialist theory (loss of a living Creator-God), and Marxist materialist presuppositions (new economic theory based on hatred of God) together with Freud's materialist- based analysis of religion and human sexuality threw faith in God and Christian theism "over the wall of civilization,' said Zacharias:
 
"With such abusive attacks directed at religious belief coming from so many directions, it was left for someone to cast this creature called theism completely out, and exorcise the world of all such influence.  The one who did that was the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche." (p. 25)
 
By the time of Nietzsche, perceptive thinkers had already been expressing apprehension at the prospect of the multitudes who having lost their faith would eventually be exploited by materialist haters of God (i.e., Lenin, Stalin, Hitler).  With Nietzsche, dreadful apprehension deepened into certainty, for Nietzsche despised religion in general, but upon Christianity he poured his unbridled fury:
 
"I call Christianity the one great curse, the one enormous and innermost perversion, the one great instinct of revenge, for which no means are too venomous, too underhanded, too underground, and too petty." (Nietzsche in "The Life of Nietzsche," Faru Forster Nietzsche, 1921, p. 656)
 
It was Nietzsche, the dark prophet, the son of a Lutheran pastor, who pronounced the death of God and saw that His death had already begun to,
 
 "....cast its first shadows over Europe," and though "the event itself is far too great, too remote, too much beyond most people's power of apprehension, for one to suppose that so much as the report of it could have reached them," still its advent was certain, and it was men like Nietzsche who were "the firstlings and premature children of the coming century," the century of the "triumph of Nihilism." (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 44)

Nietzsche boasted that nihilist adherents of revolution and immorality,

“...would come into power without the truth….The magic that fights for us is the magic of extremism.” (Karl Jaspers quoting Nietzsche in his Nietzsche and Christianity).

Extremism, or brazen egoistic arrogance, is one aspect of their magic. The other is the Lie—big lies, small lies, subtle lies, and lies of omission. Lies enforced by "will to power" are all that is left if the Holy God is dead in the hearts of men.  Nihilism, or objective meaninglessness, is the logical assumption if the living, personal transcendent Holy God does not exist.

In no Western thinker has the nihilist doctrine been more clearly expressed than in Nietzsche’s ecstatic utterance, “God is dead.” God is dead in the hearts of modern Westerners:

“…and it is as true of the atheists and Satanists who rejoice in the fact, as it is of the unsophisticated multitudes….Man has lost faith in God and in the Divine Truth that once sustained him; the apostasy to worldliness that has characterized the modern age since its beginning becomes, in Nietzsche, conscious of itself and finds words to express itself. God is dead…” (Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age, Eugene Rose, p. 60)

Nihilism is spiritual, moral, and intellectual suicide since if the living God of Life Who created all men in His spiritual image does not exist then it logically follows that there is no source for life, soul/spirit (inner person) or for human dignity, worth, liberty, and property. Without God the Father unalienable (God-given) rights are meaningless.

If man is not God’s spiritual image-bearer, as nihilists claim in the name of their infernally dark Enlightenment doctrines and evolutionary science, then he is less than nothing, a conclusion Buddha reached long before Jesus Christ walked this earth:

Six centuries before Jesus Christ, the Buddha already knew that if God does not exist, then the human self cannot exist either……Therefore, he deconstructed the Hindu idea of the soul. When one starts peeling the onion skin of one’s psyche, he discovers that there is no solid core at the center of one’s being. 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)

Seraphim Rose, author of “Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Age“ observes that nihilists scorn the Revealed Word, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo in particular, together with any thought or action concerned with sin, heaven and hell. Holding that only the natural dimension exists (the evolving universe of energy and matter) nihilism reduces everything---including man-- to biological, chemical, and physical processes. More profoundly,

“….Nihilist ‘simplification’ may be seen in the universal prestige today accorded the lowest order of knowledge, the scientific, as well as the simplistic ideas of men like Marx, Freud, and Darwin, which underlie virtually the whole of contemporary thought and life.”

For the last two hundred years, Enlightenment humanists — nihilistic rationalists, materialists, positivists, liberal pantheist "Christians" and their modern mystical pantheist counterparts such as occult New Agers and spiritual transhumanists — have been moving the West and America closer and closer to Buddha’s denial of the soul.

After seizing control of Russia, nihilists utilized mind-conditioning techniques from propaganda of the lie, to terroristic psychological manipulation, electro-shock treatments, mind-altering drugs, re-education and other brutal measures with emphasis on Darwinism to effect a soulless, androgynous New Man. They tried to liquidate,

“… all expressions of individual identity in favor of an impersonal collective, communal consciousness.” (The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization, Vishal Mangalwadi, p. 74)

With B.F. Skinners’ nihilist behaviorism there is neither God nor soul. Human beings are chemicals turned into psychochemical machines determined by environment, chemistry, chance, and cultural conditioning.

Cognitive scientist Daniel Dennett, one of the Four Horsemen of Atheism, is really a nihilist simplifier who claims there really is no you, that soul, spirit and will are illusions caused by chemical interactions in the brain while his partner in nihilism, naturalist Tom Wolfe proclaims,

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

In his essay, “The New Man,” Dr. Pedro Blas Gonzalez, Professor of Philosophy at Barry University, Miami, Florida, writes that nihilists have successfully destroyed the inner person (soul/spirit), dignity, personal autonomy and capacity for self-knowledge of vast numbers of Americans. Today this new man,

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

The New Man is a mutation. He is a rootless, soulless entity,

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

Dr. Gonzalez concurs,

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

In other words, Christ-hating progressive nihilists have successfully inverted the order of creation and reversed the direction of Biblical theism. With creation ex nihilo virtually replaced by evolution, then history---which begins with creation and ends with the Book of Revelation---is a relic of man's pre-scientific past.  The supremacy of evolution means that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection. Thus the finely tuned new man believes that he is the stuff of the future. This rootless, increasingly androgynous entity actually believes that he is evolving toward something higher.   In fact, trans-humanists believe that they have already transcended, or evolved beyond mere humanity. 

But all of this is a great lie, a massive deception, said Rose:

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

In his "Abolition of Man" C.S. Lewis foresaw the depersonalization of mankind at the hands of "elite class" nihilists.  He recognized that if God is dead and there is no divine meaning or purpose in nature, if nature is only cause and effect processes that have no inherent meaning or purpose apart from what nihilists choose to impart to it, then nature is simply there to be conformed, controlled, and manipulated according to the wants, desires, and purposes of nihilists.

But what happens when nihilists realize that humans are themselves mere biological, chemical, and physical processes?  Stephen Turley comments:

"Lewis feared that such recognition, particularly among the engineering elite, increasingly consigns humans to legitimate objects of manipulation. If man is no more than nature, and if nature is by definition that which is to be conquered and controlled for our own benefit, then some humans will be controlled and manipulated for the benefit of those who have the power to do so." (The Disordered Loves of Liberal Media, Stephen Turley, The Imaginative Conservative) 

Lewis gives the obvious example of contraception, where those who control nature in effect control other humans. This said Turley,

"... is precisely the driving force behind abortion, and why today there is a class of elites that sees abortion as more sacred than the Second Amendment. Abortion, unlike the Second Amendment, controls nature and thus embodies the greatest good of the modern age. This is why the practice of slaughtering and dismembering humans in abortuaries and harvesting their body parts—in the name of reproductive rights and curing disease—can be treated with the callous levity portrayed in the hidden videos. This explains why the shooting and beheading of a lion can evoke such moral outrage. Baby parts promise cures, while lions are merely cute."

 The New Man is the product of a vast matrix of deception, its threads being vicious hatred of God and Jesus Christ in particular, neo-pagan naturalism and evolutionary cosmologies, science as the only acceptable knowledge, and nihilist philosophies solidified in mass delusion. Mass delusion has been working its way through our culture, embedding itself, often unconsciously, within our psyches where it eventually effects an inner blinding and counter-conversion of souls.  This means that the New Man is not new at all.  With God dead in his heart and unfettered by transcendent Truth and Moral Law he is nothing more than the old man, the natural man in his original state of sin.   In 1 Corinthians 2 Paul uses the word natural to refer to someone still in his original (sinful) state. The Greek word psuchikos (“natural”) can be defined as “animal,” as opposed to “spiritual.” Natural men are those who are occupied with the things of this material world to the exclusion of the things of God. They are led by instinct rather than by the Spirit of God. They intuitively choose sin over righteousness. They are the “pagans” Jesus refers to in Matthew 6:32 who only seek after the things of this world. (Natural Man, gotquestions.org)

In falling away from the living Triune God comes the reversal of conversion in which the soul ceases to live from the spirit and begins to live with the life of the body. The disordered passions thereby revived absorb the life of the person who spiritually dies resulting in the natural man of 2 Tim. 3:3. (St. Tikhon, Works II, quoted in Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, p. 120)

“….. 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

The Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word become Flesh, Jesus Christ the Physician came to heal the spiritually sick.  But whoever rejects the Physician and his own soul, whether through indifference (willful ignorance), foolishness,  outright denial and hatred, rejects His prescription, hence destroys him or herself.

Calling Evil by Its Name

In the fourth video released by The Center for Medical Progress a Planned Parenthood VP says fetuses may come out intact and agrees on payments specific to the specimen. 

After more than fifty years of having it pounded into our heads by amoral humanists that evil does not exist, the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos leave many if not most Americans without the right words to express their shock and revulsion.  Evil however, is the appropriate descriptor.   Planned Parenthood either skillfully crushes unborn living babies in order to behead them and cannibalize them for their body parts or as we now learn, kills them upon birth for the same barbaric purposes.  This is evil rationalized and justified by wicked people as "scientific research" a "woman's choice" and "family planning."

America's Rising Empire of Evil

In the fourth video released by The Center for Medical Progress a Planned Parenthood VP says fetuses may come out intact and agrees on payments specific to the specimen.

After more than fifty years of having it pounded into our heads by amoral humanists that evil does not exist, the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos leave many if not most Americans without the right words to express their shock and revulsion.  Evil however, is the appropriate descriptor.   Planned Parenthood either skillfully crushes unborn living babies in order to behead them and cannibalize them for their body parts or as we now learn, kills them upon birth for the same barbaric purposes.  This is evil rationalized and justified by wicked people as "scientific research" a "woman's choice" and "family planning."  

Under the morally and culturally destructive influence of our so-called "enlightened" ruling class, America is quickly becoming this century's Evil Empire.  When President Reagan identified the Soviet Union as the 20th century's Evil Empire little did he know that his beloved country was slated to suffer the same fate.
 
As Communism and socialism are the politics of evil these thought systems are infernal magnets drawing power-hungry evil-minded people.  The evil are manipulative, and because they hold other people in contempt, they freely use their 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.

What drives the malignantly evil is a ravenous hunger for making other people suffer. Just as normal humans enjoy seeing other people happy and thriving, the malignantly evil 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)

Moral imbecility, another hallmark of the evil, is the inability to recognize right from wrong independent of disordered passions (i.e., pride, jealousy, covetousness, lust, envy) and attendant impulses and compulsions. To the degree by which the moral sense is corrupt, so is reason. The greater the degree of corruption the more depraved is reason, meaning that moral imbecility can easily shade into diabolism.

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." 

In the Soviet Union Marxists routinely rubber-stamped their evil-doing as something "good" committed in the name of science, revolution, progress and free love, for example. In his well-researched expose of Communism, "The Naked Communist," author W. Cleon Skousen reveals that ‘free love’ was made possible when women were declared the property of the pagan god-state. Anarchists were given control of the sex-slaves. They in turn issued ‘usage’ licenses to ‘workers.’ In other words, women were forcibly dominated and sexually violated and this was called ‘free love.’ Skousen quotes a Communist official who justifies this evil in the name of Revolution:
 
There is no such thing as a woman being violated by a man; he who says that a violation is wrong denies the October Communist Revolution. To defend a violated woman is to reveal oneself as a bourgeois and a partisan of private property.” (The Naked Communist, Skousen, p. 73)
 
In post-Christian America our decadent ruling class and their morally-corrupted followers get away with their evil-doing by persuasively convincing, and when necessary, terrorizing the rest of us into submissively accepting that it is intolerant, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, sexist, and yes — hateful — if we call their ever unfolding evil by its’ name. James Hitchcock comments:
 
Evil people exploit good people by persuading them that it is wrong to call evil by its’ name.” (Persuasive Wickedness & What We Must Say About It, James Hitchcock)

For our generation of evil and malignantly evil people there is no Holy God, 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 unspeakable evil since there is only sovereign willful 'self' who knows only personal selfishness, ambition, physical lust and hate.

Over fifty years ago, early Conservative intellectual John Hallowell predicted the tyranny of evil currently overspreading our nation. He warned that if America and the West are to find redemption from the coming tyranny,
 
We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin.” (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George Nash, p. 52)
 
The Holy God, Creator of heaven and earth is not dead; Darwinism and global change are scams; all men are fallen not born good, nor are they evolving to a higher moral purity.  This is stupid hogwash sold to gullible people by snake-oil salesman.  The truth is that no concept gives “deeper insight into the enigma that is man” than original sin. Evil is not just a “bad dream,” warned Richard Weaver, author of “Ideas Have Consequences.” Evil is not “an accident of history,” or the “creation of a few antisocial men.” It is a “subtle, protean force,” and original sin is a “parabolical expression” of this “immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing.” (ibid) 
 
The possibility of evil resides within all men and women, of both sexes and every skin color, with absolutely no exceptions. Moreover, we cannot understand evil or even know what to say about it unless we return to the Biblical view of man:

"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insight we have into the nature of man and of the crisis we find ourselves in..." (John Hallowell, The Conservative Intellectual Movement, George Nash, p. 53)
 
The greatest triumph of evil will not be the victory over the temporal, political, and economic orders but rather, the destruction of the God-breathed human spirit and the downward-spiraling transformation of Americans into a nation of submissive bystanders and insane executioners of their own and their neighbor's God-given rights to life and morally-ordered liberty.  A spirit of evil working through our ruling class and their followers is legislating and tyrannizing decent, God-fearing Americans into the mental and physical Gulag.  Like stupefied sheep we are tolerating myriad evils perpetrated against ourselves and our children  in the name of politically correct multiculturalism, LGBTQ sex education, "gay" rights, open borders, universal (socialistic) health care, and green sustainability programs to name but a few of the political evils forced upon us.  Moreover, we are trying to endure in the name of personal preservation the evil dehumanizing slavery from which brave Americans spent a century fighting and spilling their blood to deliver the rest of the world
 
In sum, it is the unrestrained evil in man which is the tyranny of evil that is the 'parabolical expression' of totalitarianism.
